Ora aderisco alla richiesta di molti di pubblicare riuniti alcuni documenti che spiegano come il prezioso Codice, compiuto a Ferrara negli anni dal 1455 al 1461 ed emigrato all?estero nel 1859, sia stato ricuperato all?Italia nel 1923 e riprodotto in fac-simile nel 1937. Ho aggiunto sei tavole a colori: due del maggior miniatore della Bibbia, Taddeo Crivelli, e una per ciascuno degli altri maestri, Franco de? Rossi (o de?

Typed Letter Signed, dated 20 March 1939, discussing The Stoneware Monkey, sharing his correspondent's interest in the character of Polton, and agreeing that he will have a larger role in an upcoming book; and [3]: 12mo. leaf.

        Of Mice and Men [First Issue]

      New York: Covici-Friede, 1937. First Edition. Hardcover. First Printing, First Issue, with "and only moved because the heavy hands were pendula," lines 20-21, p. 9, and bullet between the eight's on p. 88, one of only 2500 copies (in subsequent printings, the nine words on p. 9 and the bullet between the eight's were removed and the entire page reset). Chosen as a Book-of-the-Month Club selection, accounting for the many copies now on the market in clipped "unpriced" dust jackets masquerading as the genuine article. Small 8vo: 186pp. Publisher's beige cloth, spine and upper cover lettered within orange title block between thick black rules, top edge stained blue, pictorial dust jacket printed in black and priced $2.00. A spectacular copy, square, tight, clean, unmarked and probably unread, marred only by fading of blue top-stain; about Fine jacket, completely free of tears and edge wear, but spine panel lightly sunned (black lettering and design undiminished). Truly, one for the vaults. Goldstone-Payne A7a. & "Of Mice and Men (the title is drawn from Robert Burns's poem “To A Mouse”: “The best laid schemes o' mice and men / Gang aft a-gley / An' leave us naught but grief an' pain / For promised joy”) marks a deliberate change from Steinbeck's previous work, In Dubious Battle (1936). In this new project, Steinbeck chose to work within a narrower framework . . . concentrat[ing] on a small number of characters as Steinbeck tells the story of migrant ranch laborers in carefully detailed settings. . . . From the very beginning, not only are readers given a call to social reform (the plight of the migrant worker is bleak and unlikely to change), but they also see that such men possess an American dream shared by all levels of society. Even though George and Lennie are different in size, although one is mentally sharp and the other retarded, they both have their dream of ownership and independence." (The Literary Encyclopedia) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Signed photograph.

      . Photograph taken on March 18, 1937 upon arrival at Wheeler Field in Oahu from Oakland California after setting a speed record of fifteen hours and forty seven minutes. Image measures 8 1/2 x 6 1/2 with half inch white border. Matte finish. A photograph of Earhart with her technical advisor Paul Mantz on her right and her navigator, Freddie Noonan on her left. Mantz and Earhart are wearing leis around their necks and Noonan is holding a cigarette. The photo is signed by all three. Earhart's signature is a little bit lighter than the other two because she used blue ink and Mantz and Noonan used black. On the back of the photo is a stamped statement prohibiting reproduction of the photo without the consent of the assistent chief of staff at Fort Schafter in Honolulu. Earhart and Noonan departed on their attempt to fly around the world on June 1, 1937, just two and a half months after this photo was taken. They were last heard from on July 2, 1937, less than a month before Earhart's fortieth birthday. This photo is from the estate of Richard Salome who was an Air Force photographer in Honolulu at the time and may have taken the picture, although this cannot be confirmed. Book condition: Fine condition. Archivally matted and framed. In the annals of the achievements of women Earhart stands shoulder to shoulder with the greatest. She is also one of the most passionate experessions, male or female, of the spirit of adventure and the desire to conquor the unknown that marks the best of the human spirit. Photographs of this size signed by Earhart are very unusual and the bonus signatures of two of her colleagues tells a much more interesting story.

      fficial Report. In two volumes, 1937 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition and scarce set of this illustrated Olympic Report for the 1936 games. Very scarce in any condition. This is the important report on the 1936 Olympics. A very limited circulation it was intended for institutions and largely remains there. Despite being a primary source for the 1936 Olympics, the only record of sale we can find over the last 40 years was in 1995 at Christies. As this book was mainly institutionally held, it was often rebound, losing the interesting original binding, which was in any case fragile. Exceptionally it is still present here. It needs a little reinforcing but this is not a serious expense for a book of this value and importance, and we have left it as it is so that any purchaser can oversee their own work to their own satisfaction. There are stamps just to the title pages, these seem to be an institution of some sort, as expected, but they are not clear. First Edition. Illustrated throughout with photographs, some coloured. Contains plans of the layout of the game. Complete in two volumes. The 1936 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XI Olympiad, was held in Berlin. The citywon the bid to host the Games over Barcelona on April 26, 1931, at the 29th IOC Session in Barcelona (two years before the Nazis came to power). To outdo the Los Angeles games in 1932, the Nazis built a brand new 100,000-seat track and field stadium, 6 gymnasiums, andseveral other smaller arenas. They also installed a closed-circuit television system, radio network that reached 41 countries, and many other forms of expensive high-tech electronic equipment. By allowing only members of the 'Aryan race' to compete for Germany, Hitler further promoted his ideological belief of racial supremacy. At the same time, the party removed signs stating 'Jews not wanted' and similar slogans from the city's main tourist attractions. Condition: In cloth bindings. Externally, a trifle rubbed. Backstrips attached to front boards only. Marks to the boards and spines. Hinges strained. Internally, generally firmly bound apart from the first and last pages of each volume. Foxed to the endpapersbut otherwisegenerally clean. Pp633-7 and the title page of Volume II have been previously reinforced. Stamps to title pages. Crease to the title page of Volume I. Overall: GOOD ONLY with a very good interior. The potential to be very good indeed with a small amount of work, and very very original..
