        [Flock of Geese]

      London: Published by Arthur Ackermann & Son Ltd., 157 New Bond Street, 1937. Coloured offset-lithograph. Signed in pencil by the artist (lower right just beneath the image). Printed without publication line or title. In excellent condition. Image size: 16 x 24 1/8 inches. 20 1/4 x 27 1/2 inches. A lovely early signed print from the one of the greatest bird artists of the 20th-century. This is one of the earlier Scott prints published by Ackermann, a dramatic scene of a flock of geese flying in a cloudy sky over the wetlands. Sir Peter Scott was best known in later life for his work as a founding member and chairman of the World Wildlife Fund, but in "the period before and after the war, Peter Scott became undoubtedly the most popular artist in the United Kingdom" (J. Ford, Ackermann 1783-1983 1983, p.202). The son of the Antarctic explorer Captain Robert Falcon Scott, Sir Peter initially turned to wildlife art as an extension of his early love of wildfowling. He traveled the world, hunting and painting rare birds. He held his first one-man exhibition at Ackermann's in 1933, and from the late 1930s onwards became increasingly concerned with conserving wildfowl rather than hunting them. From 1946, in tandem with a series of highly successful shows at Ackermann's, Sir Peter founded and ran the Wildfowl Trust which has gone on to become a major force in the conservation of endangered duck and geese. From 1935 up until about 1983 Ackermann's published a limited number of colour prints of Sir Peter's work. Many of the original oils are in major private and public collections, and these prints, signed by the artist himself, offer a rare chance to own an image by one of the greatest bird artists of the 20th century.

        Unpublished Manuscript of "Cardé on the Figure: Digressions of a Philogynist" with Photographic Archive

      [N.p.: n.p., 1937-1971]. Manuscript, photographs, negatives, and other items in near fine condition.. Complete unpublished manuscript of William T. Cardwell's text "Cardé on the Figure: Digressions of a Philogynist," illustrated with the author's photographs of the female nude and accompanied by a selection of his other photographic and artistic work. Includes 63 pages of handwritten text, an extensive archive of photographic prints and negatives, an original handmade book, and a selection of ephemera, magazines, and pamphlets, presumably used by Cardwell as research material. A chemical engineer, musician, and avid photographer, Cardwell began employing models for his nude studies of the female form in the 1940s. These preliminary inquiries evolved into this short volume, which, reflective of shifting attitudes toward sexuality in mid-twentieth century America, explores the nature of beauty and artistic perspective in relation to the feminine figure. The collection features 185 photographs, including 61 duplicates, mostly 8 x 10 inches and printed on glossy and matte finish photographic papers of varying thicknesses: predominantly black-and-white studies of female nudes, although a selection of Cardwell's portraits and photographs of musicians are also included. Additionally comprises 60 envelopes containing 40 4x5 negatives, 98 35 millimeter negative strips with 1 to 4 negatives on each, and 83 small photographic prints, mostly 4 x 5 inch format, with approximately 18 duplicates, along with 16 loose prints and 32 loose 4 x 5 inch negatives, fastidiously labeled and organized in a Kodak field case box. Photographs date from the late 1940s through the early 1970s. Archive includes 15 items of ephemera and 11 photocopies of hand-drawn portraits, presumably by Cardwell. Also featured is a unique handmade book of harmonograms, created by Cardwell in collaboration with O.K. Clinton in 1937-38 and comprised of 21 pasted-in drawings.

        ALFRED THE GREAT. Signed

      London: Michael Joseph, 1937 First Edition of poet Ralph Gustafson's second book, Inscribed by him on the front free endpaper. "For Mamie - affectionately Ralph, 1937." Additionally, with an extraordinary 1pp. TLS laid-in, dated March 9, 1990, in part, explaining the dedication, the scarcity of the book itself - most copies having been destroyed in the London Blitz and his thoughts for writing the play. "Alfred the great was a result of my interest in Alfred as a figure who stemmed the tide of the invading Danes as Churchill & the Battle Of Britain stemmed the Nazi invasion. I used Alfred as a contemporary symbol of opposition to Fascism even though I, of course, when I wrote the play, I did not know of the 1940's. In the way of youth who dream, I thought Nicholas Medtner might use Alfred as a libretto for an opera!" A very good or better copy in red cloth, silver titles to the spine in a bright, fresh excellent dustwrapper with one thumbnail chip at the heel of the spine. Very nice indeed.

        Portrait photograph of world champion boxer Henry Armstrong

      New York, july 15, 1937. (ARMSTRONG, HENRY) 14. x 11 inches. Half-length, seated. Gelatin silver print. Fine. With atelier stamp in rear and pencilled notes recording the name of the subject, date, and identification number of the print("XLM K 20") . Superb image of the man known as Henry Armstrong, whose real name was Henry Jackson, who is still the only fighter to ever hold world championships in three divisions (featherweight, lightweight and welterweight) simultaneously. 1937, the year Van Vechten's photo was taken, was the year of Armstrong's incredible achievment of winning 27 fights in a row. The Mississippi native moved to St. Louis when he was four. He later lived in Pittsburgh and Los Angeles, where, after a prolific amateur career, he turned professional because he failed to qualify for the 1932 Olympic squad!

        STAR MAKER

      London: Methuen & Co. Ltd.,. [1937]. original blue cloth, spine panel stamped in red.. Light offsetting to front and rear free endpapers, some rubbing to. cloth of rear cover, a very good to nearly fine copy in a very good. dust jacket showing shelf wear to corners and edges, closed tears to. lower front panel at flap fold, upper front panel at spine fold,. minor loss to corners and spine ends. This dust jacket, priced "3s.. 6d. net" on front flap, was prepared for copies of the second issue. (1938) but this one is even later (perhaps 1941) with cancel price. sticker reading "4'- NET Including Extra War Costs." No version of. this later dust jacket was located by Satty & Smith. (#136709). First edition, first impression, later issue. The author's fourth novel, often regarded as Stapledon's greatest work, and one of the very few truly seminal modern SF novels. "... mind-boggling imaginative tour de force ..." - Survey of Science Fiction Literature V, pp. 2150-55. "... a tremendously exciting exposition of Stapledon's philosophy, which extends his thought to its logical conclusion." - Anatomy of Wonder (1976) 3-60. "A magnificent work by any standards; the most important speculative work of the period." - Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 2-121. "LAST AND FIRST MEN is just slightly an atheist's tract, based largely on nineteenth-century thought, and in particular on Winwood Reade's MARTYRDOM OF MAN. In STAR MAKER, the atheism has become a faith in itself, so that it inevitably approaches higher religion, which is bodied forth on a genuinely new twentieth-century perception of cosmology. It therefore marks a great step forward in Stapledon's art, the thought unfolding with little sense of strain through chapter after chapter. It is magnificent. It is almost unbearable ... LAST AND FIRST MEN and STAR MAKER soar far beyond the accepted limits of science fiction ... Stapledon is the great classical example, the cold pitch of perfection as he turns scientific concepts into vast ontological epic prose poems, the ultimate SF writer." - Aldiss and Wingrove, Trillion Year Spree: The History of Science Fiction, p. 198. Stapledon's "influence, both direct and indirect, on the development of many concepts which now permeate genre SF is probably second only to that of H. G. Wells." - Clute and Nicholls (eds), The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction (1993), pp. 1151-3. Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 2-101 and (1987) 2- 112. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1514.

        Rich Get Rich

      London: Bodley Head,, 1937. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, top edge stained green. With the dust jacket. Ownership inscription to the front free endpaper, some light spotting to text rather heavier on the fore edge, otherwise a particularly nice copy in the nicked dust jacket missing a sliver at the top edge and with minute toning to the spine. First edition, first impression. Better known under her later pseudonym Anna Kavan, Helen Ferguson published her first six pre-war novels (of which this is the last) under her married name, ironically in view of her portrait of her husband as a man who persistently rapes his wife and whose favourite pastime is bludgeoning rats to death with a tennis racquet. Ferguson - a talented artist and long-term heroin addict - is one of English Modernism's great and almost lost jewels, ranked by her admirer Anaïs Nin as "an equal to Kafka".

        The Case of The Seven of Calvary

      New York: Simon & Schuster, 1937. Very Good in the publisher&#39;s full black cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt (still brilliant) and the front board is stamped in blind. Deep red topstain and beige endpapers. 312pps. (For purposes of presentation, a beautiful facsimile dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has been added to this item.) There is a bit of wear at the tips and the spine-ends including a 1/8" nick in the cloth at the heel of the spine. Also, there is a small bump at the fore-edge of five or six pages. Internally, there is a previous owner&#39;s gift inscription and name-stamp near the top of the ffep. Otherwise clean and bright with a sound and square binding. SIGNED by the author -- without further inscription -- on the ffep. A nice copy of this Inner Sanctum Mystery -- scarce signed. The author&#39;s first novel and a high-spot in the mystery genre.<br><br><b><font color=#003366> "We pass this book along to innumerable readers who, we believe, are going to find it as brilliant and baffling as we did. Some of the ingredients are: (1) A cast of characters in which the author has marked those who are not guilty. (2) A chapter-before-the-last in which the author sums up his case, restates the essential clues, and gives the actual page numbers on which they appear. (3) The symbol of The Seven of Calvary, left at the scene of each murder, that leads to a dead end every time. (4) A scholar who solves the murders without leaving the quiet of his library. The first death takes place on the campus of a large American university. There is, seemingly, no motive for it. There is no clue of any kind except the rough drawing of The Seven of Calvary left near the body. And from this very lack of motive, this apparently patternless murder, Dr. Ashwin gets the first intimation of the pieces of the puzzle -- an intimation that crystallizes with the second murder into a perfect whole. Mr. Boucher presents his puzzle with skill; he salts it with a lusty sense of humor; he has a lot of fun with his characters. In short, we hope you enjoy it." -- Inner Sanctum Mysteries.</b></font><br><br> Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile.

        The Collected Works

      London: Chatto & Windus,, 1937. Poetry, Prose, Letters and Some Drawings. Edited by Gordon Bottomley & Denys Harding. With a Foreword by Siegfried Sassoon. Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine gilt, red top-stain. With the dust jacket. Portrait frontispiece and 7 plates. Light marks to top of boards, partial fading to spine, and a red mark to fore-edge. An excellent copy, internally fresh, in the tanned and chipped jacket. First edition, first impression. The jacket is extremely uncommon. "Rosenberg&#39;s poems from the front show him to have absorbed the great tradition of English pastoral poetry, but his tone is different: more impersonal, informal, ironic, and lacking the indignation characteristic of the work of Wilfred Owen and Siegfried Sassoon. In such poems as &#39;Break of Day in the Trenches&#39;, &#39;Returning we Hear the Larks&#39;, and his masterpiece, &#39;Dead Man&#39;s Dump&#39;, Rosenberg succeeded in his intention of writing &#39;Simple poetry &#151; that is where an interesting complexity of thought is kept in tone and right value to the dominating idea so that it is understandable and still ungraspable&#39;. Rosenberg was killed on the Western Front near Fampoux, north-east of Arras, on 1 April 1918 and buried in an unmarked grave. His remains were discovered eight years later and reinterred under a headstone in the Bailleul Road east cemetery in Flanders" (ODNB).
