He joined the diplomatic service in 1908, trained for two years, and was posted to Constantinople in 1910, "but in September a slight fever was diagnosed as tuberculosis and he returned to England to a sanatorium. He pronounced himself cured and ? went back to Constantinople in March 1911, to be transferred in April to Beirut. Flecker was not a very efficient vice-consul" (ODNB). His first formal collection of verse, The Bridge of Fire, was published in 1907, and The Golden Journey to Samarkand was published in 1913. He died in Switzerland aged thirty-one.Lawrence knew Flecker in Beirut before the war.

        Autograph Typed Letter, Signed "Eleanor Roosevelt" to Louise Lazell, Policy Reader for the Women's Division of the Federal Writers Project

      Washington, D.C. 1937 - 1p. with postscript in holograph, on White House letterhead. 8vo. "I HOPE THAT WHEN 1940 COMES I CAN BE A PRIVATE CITIZEN" Described as a "friendly, though not very close, acquaintanceship," Eleanor Roosevelt and Louise Lazell, none the less, carried on regular correspondence between 1933 and at least 1941. In this letter, written during FDR's second term, Eleanor Roosevelt hints at her desire to be free of her role as first lady when the term is over. Reading: "Thank you very much for your letter, but I certainly have no desire to lead anything, except as I get involved in things which I cannot avoid! [Exclamation mark in holograph.] You are most kind to feel that I have so much influence and I hope that when 1940 comes that I can be a private citizen again and entirely off the record." Postscript in holograph, reading: "Your last letter came t-day & I will write Mrs. Jones"At Eleanor Roosevelt's behest, Louise Lazell was hired as a speech writer for the women's division of the Democratic National Committee in 1935. She was later employed at the Good Neighbor League, which was incorporated in 1936, to aid in the re-election campaign of President Roosevelt by emphasizing social and economic progress achieved under the New Deal, before being hired by Ellen Woodward, head of the Women's and Professional Division of the Federal Writers Project, as a Policy Reader, where she devoted herself to censoring actual or potential Communist propaganda, particularly in the WPA's state guide books. In 1938, Lazell gave damning testimony against her boss, Henry Alsberg, and other national editors, naming states that turned in Communist and inflammatory material and claiming that Alsberg shaped propaganda that incited class hatred, condemned buiness and industry and were blatantly pro-labor. 1p. with postscript in holograph, on White House letterhead. 8vo

        Kogo My Bili: Risunki Khud

      V, 14 leaf volume of Russian political satire containing a brief introductory text followed by 13 poems by Bedny, each about a different Russian or Soviet military figure, and each accompanied by a small inset map related to their campaign and a harsh and sometimes gruesome caricature by the Kukryniksy collective, figures depicted include Lavr Kornilov, Pyotr Krasnov, Anton Denikin, Andrei Shkuro, Konstantin Mamontov, Alexander Kolchak, Boris Annenkov, Grigory Semyonov, Dmitri Horvath, Nikolai Yudenich, Yevgeny-Ludvig Miller, Nestor Makhno, and Pyotr Wrangel. Lg. 4to. Orig. graphic printed boards. Some pages loose, front cover with some minor losses and creasing. Moscow (Izogiz) 1937. "Kukryniksy" was a collective name formed by combining the names of the three caricaturists (Mikhail Kupriyanov, Porfiri Krylov, and Nikolai Sokolov) who met at Moscow art school in the early 1920's. By 1924 they had begun drawing caricatures and cartoons under the joint "Kukryniksy" name. They gained increased recognition in the 1930s for their drawings in Krokodil, a Moscow satirical newspaper, attacking Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Heinrich Himmler, Joseph Goebbels, and Francisco Franco. Demyan Bedny (born Yefim Alekseevich Pridvorov) was a Soviet Ukranian poet, Bolshevik, and satirist. He was friends with Lenin, and was the only writer to be allocated rooms in the Kremlin. In 1930, however, two of his poems were censured, beginning a string of condemnations of his work. In 1938, he was stripped of his membership in the Communist Party and the Union of Soviet Writers, but slowly regained Stalin's favor throughout World War II. Very scarce; as of May 2016, WorldCat locates only one holding in North America.

      The Students of the University of Chicago. Original Wraps. Collectible; Very Good. A wonderful selection of The University of Chicago's impressive monthly student magazine called "The Pulse". Spanning its maiden issue in September, 1937 thru March, 1941, and representing a critical period for the University (as the campus saw not only the lead-up to World War II but also its rise --under the stewardship of President Robert Hutchins--to a world-class institution).

Magazine-formatted, each issue boasts dozens and dozens of crisp black-and-white photos documenting campus life and, naturally, highly-opinionated articles detailing all things related to the student body. Also some very interesting ephemera laid-into a number of the issues. An uncommon glimpse into late 30s-early 40s student life at one of the country's great centers of learning.

        Season 1937 Catalogue of Christmas and New Year Greetings Cards

      n.p. n.p. 1937 - A catalogue (330x260mm) with 52 pages onto which are pasted 54 examples of Christmas Cards, trade calendars and New Year greetings cards. Those pages without cards contain information about ordering, types of greeting and customer offers. The first two pages and the front pastedown contain further customer information. Bound in heavy card covered in gold coloured paper decorated with bells and holly. Spine and corners in cream faux leather. The upper cover is letter in gilt stamped on brown leather panels and in the centre is a copy of one of the cards from the catalogue with a photograph of the Royal Family in 1937. Loosely inserted are two paper order forms for Collinson and Co. of Preston. This suggests that the catalogue is from Collinsons (there is no indication in the catalogue itself) which is one of the oldest greeting cards and stationery companies in the UK and is still in business. The condition of the binding is good/very good - some rubbing and wear to the edges and corners and the cream spine is rather dirty through handling. Internally the central leaf has come loose from its staples but otherwise the catalogue is tight and sound. The cards and calendars themselves are all in excellent condition, clean and bright. This is an interesting item of ephemera with a wonderful collection of cards and calendars ranging from the kitsch to the stylish and all produced to a very high quality.

        Official History of Australia in the War, 1914-1918 [the complete twelve-volume set]

      Sydney, Angus and Robertson, 1937 (one volume), 1938 (two volumes), 1939 (one volume), 1940 (two volumes), 1942 (one volume), 1943 (three volumes), and 1944 (two volumes). The sixth volume is the first and only edition of 1942, the others are mixed editions ranging from the fifth (Volume 9) to the sixteenth (Volume 12). Octavo, twelve volumes, each approximately 700 pages with numerous maps plus plates. Maroon cloth; Volume 6 moderately flecked, as often, and the front inner hinge is slightly strained but still firm; slight nick to the cloth on the leading edge of the front cover of Volume 5; minor wear to a one-centimetre section near the foot of the front hinge of Volume 11; an indented crease to the spine of Volume 12; edges of three volumes a little foxed (and one has a tiny mark); ownership signature in two volumes; overall, these are trifling blemishes, and the set is in excellent condition. The Australian Government accepted Charles Bean's 1919 recommendations for 'the official history and for a national war memorial which "for all time" would "hold the sacred memories of the AIF".... Bean himself wrote six volumes about the infantry divisions: the two on Gallipoli, and four on France. He edited eight [sic] more, and he and a colleague annotated the volume of photographs.... The series contained nearly four million words. In Australian historical writing nothing had ever been done on such a scale; and there had been no military history anywhere quite like Bean's.... [He] brought a democratic and colonial scepticism to bear on the assumption that the dispatches of high commanders were the best source of information about what actually happened when men went into battle. His own diaries (226 note-books) were full of the evidence about "what actual experiences, at the point where men lay out behind hedges or on the fringe of woods, caused those on one side to creep, walk, or run forward, and the others to go back". Bean's approach differed from that of the British war historians, whose work was official not only in sponsorship but in texture: history written by generals, not by an honorary captain. The British volumes had no biographical footnotes of the sort that were essential to Bean's method because he wanted to show that the participants were "a fair cross-section of our people ... that the company commander was a young lawyer and his second in command and most trusted mate a young engine driver and so on"' ('Australian Dictionary of Biography'). Dornbusch 209 (the complete set), 353 (Volumes 1 and 2), 294-297 (Volumes 3-6), 374 (Volume 10), 219 (Volume 11) and 223 (Volume 12); Fielding and O'Neill, page 208 (the complete set); Trigellis-Smith 725-36 (the complete set). Dornbusch provides useful information about dates of reprints and revised editions. For the record, the edition and publication date of the volumes in this set are (in order of volume number) 8/38; 13/44; 10/40; 9/39; 10/43; 1/42; 12/44; 7/38; 5/37; 8/40; 9/43; and 16/43.

        The Road to Wigan Pier.

      London: Victor Gollancz, 1937. FIRST EDITION. Octavo (22 x 15 cm), pp.viii; 264. With 32 black and white photographic plates. Not including the foreword, which appeared in the first Left Book Club edition. In publisher's blue cloth with yellow titles to spine. With original light yellow dust-jacket with titles to spine and front cover.Some spotting to prelims and edges; heavy tobacco scent. Very slight reading lean. Chipping to jacket corners and head and tail of spine; spine lightly browned. Very good indeed. Orwell's famous sociological analysis of working class life in the bleak industrial heartlands of Northern England prior to the Second World War, commissioned by Victor Gollancz in January 1936. Orwell received a £500 advance (two years' income for him at the time), and researched the book by spending the harsh winter of 1936 living in Barnsley, Sheffield and Wigan; three urban areas of heavy industry producing coal, steel and textiles respectively. The book was chosen by Gollancz for its popular Left Book Club, which issued most of the copies printed (over 44,000) in 1937, making the first Gollancz trade edition of just 2,150 copies very rare, especially in a jacket. Fenwick, G; George Orwell. A Bibliography [A.5b], (1998).

        The Savoy Cocktail Book

      London Constable & Company Ltd 1937 - An early reprint of the "New and enlarged edition". The book is firmly and squarely bound in clean, slightly bumped orange cloth, lettered in black. The text block is a little toned and foxed and a rectangular section has been cut from the front endpaper, presumably to remove an unwanted inscription. The dust jacket is the original, it is price clipped, with some minor nicks, a few short closed tears and slight creasing to the edges. An essential title for any self-respecting bon vivant and this is an unusually clean and bright example, perhaps a little too bright some mornings when the previous night's consumption and mixing have been on the wrong side of moderation.

        The Tale of The Land of Green Ginger

      Arthur Barker Limited, London 1937 - 1937 1st edition 20.5 x 29.1 cm green cloth boards with gilt stamped titles on black spine labels, 143pp including 20 brightly coloured images. The book comes with 5/- net price. A VG+ book, the larger of two versions of the first edition, with fading on the boards where there is loss to the dust jacket. Internally, clean and bright and without names or inscriptions but with very light spotting to the endpapers. There is also a small drip mark of ½ cm on pp38 and 39. The dust jacket has some significant loss with a 10 ½ cm x 5cm triangular section missing from the front panel and 1 ½ cm missing from the spine head and 3 cm from the foot. There is also lesser loss from the spine edge corners a number of closed tears and a little associated creasing. A scarce volume, particularly with a dust jacket in any condition. It is significant because, largely on the basis of this work, Noel Langley was chosen to adapt Frank L Baum's Wizard of Oz for the Cinema. If you would like any further information or images, please do not hesitate to ask. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
