        The Crowning Years and Other Poems

      Dorset - Loyd Haberly, 1937 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A collections of poetry written and printed by Loyd Haberly in Stony Down, Corfe Mullen, Dorset. Loyd Haberly (18961981) was an American poet, letterpress printer, and educator. After studying at Reed College and Harvard, Haberly was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship to study Law at Trinity College, Oxford. However, he became interested in fine printing while in England and began to print and bind books under his own imprint, the Seven Acres Press. He was named controller of the Gregynog Press, a well-known private press in Wales, in 1933, but his tenure with the press was brief and, by most accounts, less than satisfactory to all concerned. When he left he was presented with a supply of the type, which he later used, after returning to the United States, in the production of a number of hand-printed limited editions for which he served as author, illustrator, printer, and binder. Limited edition - number 14 of 150 - with a vignette title page. Condition: In a quarter-morocco binding with decorative boards. Externally sound, with just some rubbing to the spine. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright and clean. Overall: VERY GOOD..

Ce cinquième tirage en 21ème édition (allez expliquer cela à des bibliophiles non francophones. autant parler patois haut-valaisan à une vahiné du lagon Fribourgeois) de décembre 1937, suivant d'un an celle parue dans la collection "Pour Mon Plaisir", a échappé à Bringolf.Notre exemplaire dans une petite reliure cossue et proprette n'a pas du déplaire à l'auteur, qui l'a dédicacé en février 38; on sait qu'il avait quelque affinité avec le parchemin, comme en témoigne certaines séries de ses oeuvres complètes ainsi reliées dans la première édition de Mermod.

Klotz 281/1; Schug 1933.- Eines der makabersten Dokumente der nationalsozialistisch-antisemitischen Jugendverhetzung, erstmals 1936 erschienen. - "Dieses Buch ist nur als Produkt des Fanatismus zu begreifen. Es enthält ein Substrat der von den Nationalsozialisten entwickelten rassistischen Theoreme, wie sie beispielsweise unter Führung von Julius Streicher, einem in diesem Bilderbuch ausdrücklich apostrophierten Vorkämpfer dieser Wahnideen, vertreten wurden. Dieses Bilderbuch, das in die Herzen der Kinder einen ‘primitiven, barbarischen Haß’ säen wollte, wird mit Recht als ‘pervers’ und ‘sadistisch’ bezeichnet. Ein derartiges Bilderbuch, das alle Erziehungsgrundsätze pervertiert, macht den dämonischen Charakter eines totalitären Herrschaftssystems deutlich."

      formato giornale - Settimanale di politica e letteratura diretto magistralmente da Leo Longanesi , che diede un taglio giornalistico completamente nuovo ed innovativo, con inchieste ed articoli storici e politici ma abbinando anche saggi di cultura letteraria (racconti a puntate, poesie, dibattiti). Viene chiuso bruscamente nel gennaio '39 per evidenti incompatibilità con il regime . Longanesi con questo periodico inaugura la tecnica del rotocalco , con le "famose fotografie innovative e provocatorie" che poi hanno fatto scuola e spesso ognuna di esse vale un articolo.... ( anche "il Mondo di Panunzio" discende da qui ). Notevole l'elenco dei collaboratori : Alvaro, Barilli, Benedetti, Bacchelli, Palazzeschi, Praz, Landolfi, Malaparte, Moravia, Pannunzio e tanti altri . Assai Importanti i vari articoli di guerra e politici, anche sulla guerra di Spagna. In ogni uscita compaiono i graffianti e divertenti disegni di Maccari , ognuno dei quali è un vero e proprio articolo di fondo ! Notazione assai curiosa : non risulta su OMNIBUS alcun articolo firmato da Leo Longanesi, salvo non fosse all'ombra di qualche pseudonimo ...

        Great Contemporaries

      This is a collector-worthy copy of the British first edition, first printing in the first printing dust jacket.  Great Contemporaries is Churchill's much-praised collection of insightful essays about 21 leading personalities of the day - including the likes of Lawrence, Shaw, and, most famously, Hitler. Churchill's piece about Hitler can be a shock to the modern ear, underscoring both Churchill's ability to make a balanced appraisal of his subject and his earnest desire to avoid the war that Churchill would fight with such ferocious resolve only a few years after this book was published.  About Hitler, Churchill wrote: "We cannot tell whether Hitler will be the man who will once again let loose upon the world another war in which civilization will irretrievably succumb, or whether he will go down in history as the man who restored honour and peace of mind to the great Germanic nation and brought it back serene, helpful and strong, to the forefront of the European family circle." There is a reason this book is still in print today.  It was written with what has been called "penetrating evaluation, humor, and understanding."  Churchill's balanced and nuanced perspectives are a good model for many of today's more polemic writers.  And naturally, in the course of sketching the character of his contemporaries Churchill necessarily reveals some of his own character and perspective. This is as fascinating a read today as it was in 1937.  Here is a collector-worthy copy, near-fine in an almost near-fine, unclipped first printing dust jacket. Collectors should note that the first printing dust jacket is unique, with changes to the front flap on the second and subsequent printings.  The binding is immaculate, square, and tight with sharp corners, bright gilt, and no sign of the usual fading to the blue cloth.  The only flaw we note is a slight outward warp to the top board edges.  The contents are bright and tight.  Differential toning to the endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps confirms what the lovely binding already tells us - that this copy has spent life jacketed.  We find no internal spotting.  The sole previous ownership mark is a vintage inked name on the first free endpaper.  The blue topstain remains uniformly dark.  Light spotting is confined to the otherwise bright fore edge.  The dust jacket is unclipped and highly complete.  Trivial losses are confined to the hinge extremities and corners.  The orange color remains strong, with only a barely perceptible color shift to the spine.  Light wear and soiling is primarily confined to the hinges and extremities and we note minor wrinkling at the spine ends.  The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.
