        Out of Africa

      London: Putnam, 1937. First Impression. Hardcover. Fine. First Edition ("First Published November 1937" on the copyright page), preceding all other English-language editions, including the more common American first printing of 1938, of Dinesen's best-loved work, published under her pseudonym. Original coarsely woven, claret-colored cloth, the spine lettered in gilt. 8vo: x, 416pp. A Fine, bright copy, apparently unread, the binding tight and square, the spine gilt brilliant, the pages spotless. Just superb. Blixen’s second book, part novel, but mostly memoir of her 19 years in Africa—"I had a farm . . . at the foot of the Ngong Hills." The Oscar-winning film (1985), starring Meryl Streep and Robert Redford, was based more on Judith Thurman’s biography of Blixen than the book, in which Blixen's romance with Denys Finch-Hatton is mentioned only obliquely. Out of Africa is unusual as the work of a colonial writer in placing Africans, rather than white settlers, in the foreground, along with descriptions of the glorious landscape. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Infantile Paralysis and Cerebral Diplegia: Methods Used for the Restoration of Function

      Angus & Robertson Limited Sydney: Angus & Robertson Limited. Very Good+ in Good+ dj. 1937. First Edition. Hardcover. NOISBN . [cloth faded at a couple of spots along bottom edge, moderate foxing to page edges, vintage bookseller's label (H.K. Lewis & Co. Ltd., Medical & Scientific Booksellers, London) on front pastedown; jacket browned at spine and edges, small tears at several corners with minor paper loss, light staining along bottom edge]. (B&W photographic plates) Elizabeth Kenny's pioneering and then-controversial treatise on infantile paralysis -- later to be known more familiarly as polio (short for poliomyelitis) -- which flew in the face of conventional medical wisdom about the disease, emphasizing muscle rehabilitation through exercise. This approach to the disease essentially laid the groundwork for the practice of physical therapy, or physiotherapy. A tireless (some might have said tiresome) crusader and publicity-seeker, the author helped to set up many clinics in Australia and England; aided in no small measure by a stirring portrayal of her by Rosalind Russell in the 1946 Hollywood movie SISTER KENNY (based on her 1943 memoir "And They Shall Walk"), she also became something of a folk heroine. A very scarce book, especially in the original dust jacket. .

        Italia Imperiale (Imperial Italy)

      Popolo D'Italia Milan Popolo D'Italia (1937) Edizione Speciale Della Rivista illustrata del 'popolo d'italia' vg Elephant folio. Unpaginated. Gray and black decorated glossy boards with red, white and green lettering to cover. Expertly rebacked. Silk endpapers. "The best Italian photobook from the fascist era has to be Italia Imperiale. A 'special issue' of the magazine La Rivista illustrata del 'popolo d'italia' (Italian People's Illustrated Magazine), this enormous volume is the ultimate guide to the Italy of Benito Mussolini, the Italian equivalent of the great Russian propaganda photographic books. The book combines some excellent modernist photography with painted illustrations and photocollages, but its immediate impact derives from its size - a full-page photograph or montage on this scale has enormous power, especially the many splendid industrial and architectural photographs in the New Version style. Particularly notable is a close-up portrait of Il Duce, which is almost life-size, overbearing and impressive. Italia imperiale runs through the more-or-less standard iconography of propaganda books, beginning with history - close-ups of Roman ruins, an account of the Venetian and Genoese maritime republics - before introducing Il Capo and accounts of Italy's ill-fated colonialist military adventures of the 1930s in such places as Ethiopia and Somalia, before we are given extensive and interesting views of Italy under construction. There are many fine examples of architectural and industrial photography. The architectural imagery primarily features buildings in the 'fascist modern' style, that rigidly classical mode that seemed to be adopted by all the fascist countries, but nowhere more successfully than in Italy, its natural home." (Parr/Badger, The Photobook, vol. 1, p. 175). Photographs by Frederico Patellani, Stefano Bricarelli, Lucio Ridenti and Bruno Stefani. Illustrations by Marcello Nizzoli, Mario Sironi, Bramante Buffoni, Ruggero Micaelles, Erberto Carboni and Paolo Garretto. Reproductions of photographs in b/w & duo-tone, photographic reproductions of paintings and drawings in color & b/w. Manlio Morgagni was a personal friend of Mussolini's. He committed suicide when receiving the news of Mussolini's fall. Text in Italian. Some scuffing, scratching and minor staining on boards. Slight creasing to leaf preceding title-page and to last two leaves. Tight copy in very good condition. Extra shipping required. Elaborate Italian propaganda photobook of Mussolini's pre-war "Imperial Italy."

        Die Volks-Illustrierte, Jahrgang 1937.

      52 issues in 1 binding (complete run for the year 1937), Prag/Praha/Prague 1937. Folio (37,5x26,5 cm). Contemporary brown half-calf bindning. Clip in frontpage of issue 5, (1 leaf = 2 pages) missing in no. 14; frontpage to no. 37 missing; 2 pages missing in no. 43; frontpage of no. 43 missing. 1 sheet loosened. With 29 (of 32) full-page photomontages by John Heartfield. Well-preserved copy.. Scarce. The weekly German-language left-wing paper Die Volks-Illustrierte was the exiled continuation of the German Socialist publication AIZ (Arbeiter Illustrierte Zeitung). For obvious reasons, the editorial staff fled to Prague in the early spring of 1933 and continued the publication under a new name and with much lesser print run. The 1937 annual highly reflects the civil war in Spain and the Japanese atrocities in China. The Nazi rule in Germany dominates the contents, off course; and the Czech authorities were regularly confronted with an official German demand of taking action against the paper. ** The 1937 annual contains a range of outstanding anti-Nazi photomontages by John Heartfield, among others "Blut für Eisen", "Der friedfertige Raubfisch", "Tod dem Kriegspolypen!", "Ob Nazimann, ob Samurai, es ist dieselbe Melodei" and the almost prophetic vision "Mahnung".*** John Heartfield (1891-1968) was born as Helmut Herzfeld and changed his name during WWI in reaction to the Anglofobia of wartime Germany. He became a leading figure in Dada movement but got his everlasting reputation through his left-wing, anti-Nazi photomontages

        Micky Maus Zeitung. - Nummer 15.

Tintenfleck, durchgehende Knickspur in Längs- u. Quer-Richtung)., Zeitschrift Nummer 15 dieser frühen deutschen "Micky Maus Publikation", übersetzt aus dem Englischen von Martha Ehrat-Bollmann. Der Zürcher Verlag Bollmann erwarb 1936, wohl um über die allgemeine Wirtschaftskrise hiwegzukommen gleichzeitig in Paris beim europäischen Vertreter des Disney-Verlages die Hauptlizenz und in Italien bei Mondadori, der damals die Comics unter dem Namen "Topolino" in italienischer Sprache veröffentlichte, die Unterlizenzen, diese viel zu teuer trugen zum Misserfolg der Reihe "Micky-Maus-Wunderbücher" bei. Der Preis der Bände bis zu sieben Schweizer Franken war während der allgemeinen Krise viel zu hoch und die finanzielle Situation konnte auch mit der halbmonatlichen Herausgabe der vorliegenden Zeitschrift, die zwischen 25 und 30 Rappen zu haben war, nicht verbessert werden. Die Produktion wurde nach dem 18. Heft und dem 7. Buch eingestellt, nachdem der Verlag erfolglos in Deutschland und Österreich nach Partnern gesucht hatte. Im Nazideutschland war die Publikation dieses amerikanischen Imports unerwünscht, obwohl Joseph Goebbels dem Führer 1937 18 Micky-Maus-Filme zu Weihnachten geschenkt haben soll und "sie insgeheim Spass an den Zeichentrickfilmen von Walt Disney hatten" (Laqua, Carsten: Wie Micky unter die Nazis fiel.
