        Vertrag mit eigenh. U. O. O., 9. VI. 1938.

      1938. 2 SS. auf 2 Bll. Folio. Interessantes Dokument zu der von Churchill letztlich nicht verfaßten "Geschichte Europas seit der Russischen Revolution" ("Europe Since the Russian Revolution"), eines der wenigen literarischen Vorhaben, die Churchill aufgegeben hatte. Wie aus dem Vertrag mit dem Verleger George Harrap hervorgeht, hätte Churchill für das Werk insgesamt eine Summe von £13,500 erhalten sollen, davon £1,500 bei Vertragsunterzeichnung, £2,000 bei Abgabe von Teil I, weitere £3,000 bei Abgabe von Teil II und £7,000 nach Abschluß des dritten Teils. Absatz 10 regelt, daß im Falle von Streitigkeiten oder Meinungsverschiedenheiten diese vor dem Schiedsgericht auszutragen wären - wo die Kontrahenten schließlich um 1943 auch landen sollten: Churchill, der durch den Ausbruch des Weltkrieges anderes zu tun gehabt hatte, als sich historischer Forschung zu widmen - "I suppose I have not read a dozen books in the last five years" -, argumentierte auch ganz in diesem Sinne, daß er jegliches Interesse an Europa nach der Russischen Revolution verloren hätte und daß überdies durch eine Geschichte Rußlands aus seiner Feder eine Gefährdung der kriegsbedingt notwendig gewordenen Allianz mit Stalin nicht von der Hand zu weisen sei. Auch neuerliche Anläufe Harraps zu noch großzügigeren Konditionen führten zu keinem Ergebnis, so daß Harrap schließlich im September 1944 sich eingestehen mußte, daß es, gleich ob sein Verlag nun im Recht sei oder nicht, unangenehm sei, einen Prozeß mit einem Mann zu führen, dem jeder von ihnen so viel schulde ("it is distasteful to us, whether we are right or not, to litigate this matter with a man to whom every one of us is so much indebted", zit. in: Reynolds, In Command of History, SS. 19-20). Die erste Rate seines Honorars zahlte Churchill freilich zurück; mit Harrap sollte er keinerlei Geschätsbeziehung mehr eingehen, seine Kriegserinnerungen "The Second World War" erschienen bei Macmillan und Cassells. - Bl. 1 von Churchill eh. paraphiert, Bl. 2 mit den Unterschriften von Churchill und seinem Verleger sowie von dessen Sekretärin; etwas angestaubt und eingerissen.

        La femme barbe. Autograph musical manuscript excerpt from the incidental music to the comedy first performed in 1938

      - 2 pp. Folio (ca. 348 x 268 mm.). 56 measures scored for both spoken and sung voices, including sections for chorus with instrumental accompaniment. Apparently complete. Marked "Scène IX les mêmes: puis les trois emissaires du Sultan - puis Croquendot." Notated in black and red ink with some markings in blue crayon. Unsigned. Slightly worn; creased at central fold. Delvincourt, a French composer, was appointed director of the Versailles Conservatory in 1931 and of the Paris Conservatoire in 1941. "His most important decisions were the founding of the Orchestre des Cadets and a chorus (so avoiding the evacuation of his pupils to Germany), and his invitation to Messiaen, despite much comment, to teach the philosophy of music. After Debussy and Ravel, he was one of the most ardent of French composers in trying to recapture the spirit of the Middle ages and the Renaissance, as in the Danceries." Alain Louvier in Grove Music Online.

        Rebecca

      London: Victor Gollancz Limited,, 1938. Octavo. Original black cloth, calligraphic title to spine and front board gilt. With the dust jacket. Faint crease to spine, a few spots to edges and to margins of prelims first and last few text leaves. A very good copy in the entirely unrestored, slightly sunned jacket with a few insignificant nicks, a toned spine panel with a small faint splash-mark not affecting text, and a slightly rubbed and marked rear panel with a short closed tear to the foot of the rear flap. First edition, first impression. Du Maurier's staggeringly popular second novel is today of considerable scarcity in the dust jacket. Written during the author's unhappy sojourn in Egypt as an army wife, Rebecca "was meant to be a psychological study of jealousy and was based on her own feelings of jealousy towards a former fiancée of her husband's, Jan Ricardo, but it was hailed as a romantic novel in the tradition of Jane Eyre. [Du Maurier] was astonished by the success of Rebecca?hardback copies in Britain alone passed the million mark in 1992?and mystified by the readers' interpretation of the novel" (ODNB).

        The War the Infantry Knew 1914-1919.A Chronicle of Service in France and Belgium with The Second Battalion His Majesty's Twenty-Third Foot, The Royal Welch Fusiliers: founded on personal records, recollections and reflections, assembled, edited and partly written by One of their Medical Officers.

      The First UK Printing published by P.S.King and Son Ltd in 1938.The BOOK is in near FINE condition. Original red cloth with gilt titling to the spine and the initials of the regiment gilt to the upper board.Covers are clean apart from a tiny black dot to the spine.Light pushing to the spine ends with a little fading and tiny splitting at the spine tips.A hint of toning to the text block.Free from inscriptions,erasures and markings. The endpapers are only very slightly tanned.27 leaves of sketch-maps bound in at the rear.The very scarce First edition,being one of just 500 copies privately produced by the author.As such this remains an extremely elusive title. The battalion included the authors of two of the most famous literary accounts of the Great War, Graves and Sassoon, with the latter contributing a chapter to the present work entitled "A Subaltern's Service in Camp and in Action," covering the period from March 12th to April 16th, 1917, which is described as, "An early draft of pages of Memoirs of an Infantry Officer." Graves offered to contribute, but Dunn was not an admirer of Goodbye to all that, and declined his offer. Graves is mentioned, disparagingly, a handful of times in the text. Dunn's is an extraordinary book, in the Face of Battle John Keegan described it as "one of the most interesting and revealing books of its type a genuinely truthful and fascinating picture of the war as it was for the infantry." Compiled in diary form from the reminiscences of around 50 members of the Battalion, it is without doubt the most authentic account of the experience of the Western Front at Battalion level.

        Great Contemporaries

      London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., 1938. First revised and expanded edition. Hardcover. This is a superior copy of the British first revised and expanded edition, first printing, in dust jacket. This edition, published in 1938 soon after the first edition of 1937, added four new essays (Fisher, Parnell, Baden-Powell, and - of great interest - Roosevelt). As is the case with the first edition, first printing, the dust jacket for the 1938 revised edition is both elusive and desirable, and the binding quite prone to sunning and dulling in its absence. Great Contemporaries is Churchill's much-praised collection of insightful essays about 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, as it underscores his ability to write a balanced appraisal of his subject while expressing his earnest desire to avoid the war that he would fight with such ferocious resolve only a few years later. Neville Chamberlain, perhaps Churchill?s most vexing political opponent at the time, wrote to Churchill on 4 October 1937 to say: ?How you can go on throwing off these sparkling sketches with such apparent ease & such sustained brilliance? is a constant source of wonder to me. But the result is to give great pleasure and entertainment?? 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 favorably contrast with many of today's more polemic writers. In the course of sketching the character of his contemporaries Churchill necessarily reveals much of his own character and perspective. Churchill's portrait of T.E. Lawrence, published here just a few years before the Second World War, might well have been written about the author rather than by him: "The impression of the personality of Lawrence remains living and vivid upon the minds of his friends, and the sense of his loss is in no way dimmed among his countrymen. All feel the poorer that he has gone from us. In these days dangers and difficulties gather upon Britain and her Empire, and we are also conscious of a lack of outstanding figures with which to overcome them. Here was a man in whom there existed not only an immense capacity for service, but that touch of genius which everyone recognizes and no one can define." (Great Contemporaries, p.164) While some of the subjects of Churchill's sketches have receded into history, many remain well-known and all remain compellingly drawn. This first printing of the first revised and expanded edition is near fine in a very good dust jacket. The blue cloth binding proved particularly susceptible to dulling, affecting even some jacketed copies. This copy retains a bright and clean binding, with particularly strong blue color and vivid gilt. The binding is square and tight with only trivial wear confined to spine ends and corners. The contents remain bright with no previous ownership marks. Differential toning to the endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps confirms what the binding already testifies ? that this copy has always been jacketed. We note modest spotting confined to the page edges and light dust soiling to the top edge. The unclipped dust jacket features a bright and complete illustrated front face ? the hallmark feature of the jacket ? showing only minor wear to extremities and light surface scuffing. We note shallow chipping and short closed tears to the spine ends and upper rear face, the largest being a one inch by .5 inch deep triangular loss from the top edge of the rear face. Shelf presentation is quite good, with unfaded blue print and only light overall soiling. The dust jacket is protected with a removable, archival quality clear cover.

        Homage to Catalonia

      The First UK printing published by Secker and Warburg in 1938. The BOOK is in near Fine condition. The lime green boards are very lightly soiled. Mild rubbing to the corners and lower edges. The spine is only very slightly toned and the gilt titling remains very bright. Light pushing at the spine ends. Small bump to lower front corner. The text block is toned and there is the usual moderate offsetting to the end papers. Mild toning to the page edges. Free from inscriptions, erasures and markings. NO wrapper. A very presentable copy and in much better condition than usually encountered. In 'Homage to Catalonia', Orwell recounts his experiences as a soldier and disillusionment with totalitarian regimes. Notably, Victor Gollancz, who had published the English editions of Orwell's earlier works, refused to publish Homage to Catalonia because of its radical political stance. Instead, it was published by Secker and Warburg, the firm that would go on to publish Orwell's best known works - Animal Farm (1945) and Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949). Ashtonrarebooks welcomes direct contact.

        Showa 23-nen Shina Jihen shussei kinen shashincho :Hokushi sensen hen [in Japanese: A photograph album in memory of soldiers at the front lines during the China-Japan Conflict of 1937-1938].

      Tokyo: Nakatogawa Hiroyuki, March 20, , 1938. Landscape quarto. Original dark red textured paper-covered boards, green silk ties, die-cut image of the Great Wall to the front board, together with title gilt to the upper board. Illustrated title on yellow-tinted paper, 7 colour plates, numerous illustrations from photographs, some on tinted paper stock, all leaves with tissue guards, folding colour map, pictorial endpapers. Minor edge-wear, spotting to the tissue-guards, overall very good indeed. First edition of this uncommon Japanese propaganda piece recording the opening campaigns of the Japanese in the Second Sino-Japanese War. Just three copies on OCLC, Manchukuo collection in the Harvard-Yenching Library, Stanford, and Princeton. Following Japan's successes in the First Sino-Japanese War (1894-5) tensions had intensified, seeming to peak with the conquest of Manchuria in 1931 and the creation of the puppet state of Manchukuo, but continuing to rise steadily through the 30s. After a number of provocations in the summer of 1937. Chiang Kai-shek's nationalist forces joined with the warlords of Hunan and Szechwan provinces to fight the Japanese. Chiang believed that by attacking Japanese naval installations and troops in and around Shanghai, he would force the foreign powers to ally with China to fight against Japan to protect their considerable investments in southern China. For three months, the Nationalist Chinese armies held out in the face of an intense bombardment by Japan's Taiwan-based 'planes and ships on the Huangpu River, but were eventually forced to retreat to Nanking, under constant harrying attacks from Japanese reinforcements. The images in this "souvenir" album show the Japanese advance through Eastern and Coastal China; the build up of materiel; the destruction of Nanking; Japanese troops on the march, celebrating victories; the aftermath of the destructive bombardments.

Fils du peintre et sculpteur Abram Topor, le jeune Roland passe ses premières années à Paris, dans le 10e arrondissement, rue Corbeau (aujourd'hui rue Jacques-Louvel-Tessier), puis en Savoie où ses parents, immigrés juifs polonais, se cachent de l'occupant nazi. Étudiant aux Beaux-Arts de Paris, Topor collabore au journal Hara-Kiri dont il partage le culte de l'humour noir, décapant et cynique mais aussi, dans une veine plus rose, au magazine Elle.

        Autograph letter signed ("Freud"). "39 Elsworthy Road NW 3" (i. e. London), 24. VI. 1938.

      1938. 4to. 1½ pp. To the unnamed psychoanalyst and neurologist Hermann Nunberg and his wife, about his reception in England after leaving Vienna: "We are doing very well here, much better than so many others are, unfortunately, for whom one wants to do something and yet seldom can. Our reception in London was decidedly friendly, surprisingly not only from followers and old friends [...] but also from total strangers who wanted to express their joy that we are safe and in England [...]". - "Freud arrived in London by train on 6 June 1938. His reputation had preceded him to the extent that the train had to be re-routed to another platform at Victoria, so as to avoid the enthusiastic attentions of the press. Freud was greatly heartened by the cordial welcome he received, although he wrote to friends of his sense of alienation resulting from the move and his concern over the worsening state of affairs in Europe. He was particularly anxious about four of his elderly sisters who remained in Vienna, for whom visas were being sought without success. Freud did not live long enough to know that they all perished in the camps" (Oxford DNB). - Slightly spotty; folds.

        Autograph manuscript signed 'A. Einstein'. No place or date (1938 or earlier).

      1938. Folio (277:225 mm). 1 p. on fine thin paper ("Pendrift Bond"). An important working manuscript apparently representing Einstein's notes for a paper entitled "On a Generalization of Kaluza's Theory of Electricity" which he wrote jointly with Peter Bergmann, and which was published in the Annals of Mathematics, vol. 39, no. 3, July 1938, pp. 683-701. Although the manuscript differs in many details from the published article (written in English), there are enough correspondences in wording, and also with respect to the equations to the section of the article headed "The Space Structure" to suggest very strongly a link between it and the 1938 paper. In sum, the manuscript details part of Einstein's attempt to construct a unified theory of electromagnetism, gravitation and quantum mechanics based on a curved five dimensional spacetime with five spacetime coordinates x1, x2, x3, x4, x0 and four spatial coordinates, one of which, x0, is periodic. Through every point it is assumed that there passes a closed geodesic given by x1, x2, x3, x4 constant. This particular approach is sometimes referred to as "Projective Relativity" and is a type of unified theory pioneered by T. Kaluza and later by O. Klein in the 1920s. Kaluza's and Klein's ideas play a key part of modern Super String theory and are currently being extensively pursued by theoretical physicists. - After obtaining his doctorate at the German University in Prague in 1936 under the direction of Philipp Frank, Peter Bergmann (1915-2002) collaborated with Einstein, as his research assistant, at the Institute for Advanced Study between 1936 and 1941. In 1942, Bergmann published a textbook on General Relativity, Introduction to the Theory of Relativity, which contained a foreword by Einstein. We understand that Einstein presented this manuscript to the daughter of Luther P. Eisenhart, Chairman of the Mathematics Department at Princeton University. - Remains of mount on verso, light browning towards edges.

        Sammlung von 8 eigenh. Briefen mit U. Zumeist Kirchstetten und Wien, 7. V. 1938-21. XII. 1944.

Persönliche Schreiben an seinen Freund, den späteren Verlagslektor Hans Rössner: "Du, als liebender Freund, wirst verstehen, welche Verantwortung ich fühle [...] Ich muss nur zu Zeiten mich völlig einkapseln, um der Führungen von drüben völlig teilhaftig werden zu können. Ich glaube ja längst nicht mehr, daß ich es bin, der es schafft [...] Ich lasse mich treiben, verstehst Du, ich gehorche dem Gesetz [...]" (7. V. 1938). - "Was da die Ausländer von uns als 'Barbaren' sagen - das stimmt schon. Aber die sehen nur das Offizielle. Dir wirklichen Kräfte zu sehn ist ihnen nicht beschieden [...]" (28. VIII. 1938). - "[...] es geht mir seelisch gar nicht gut, ich habe eine solche Furcht, Grauen ist es, vor einer kommenden Katastrophe, ich weiß nicht welcher, und ob sie mich persönlich oder uns allgemein treffen wird. Der Führer hat herrlich gesprochen, schöner, maßvoller, klarer und edler als je. Hoffen wir das beste [...]" (4. V. 1939). - Aus der Nervenheilanstalt Inzersdorf: "Ich bin aber nun seit Februar hier in der Anstalt um mich des Alkohols zu entwöhnen [...] Manchmal scheint mir ein Schicksal wie das Hölderlins besser zu sein als das meine. [...] Sei tapfer! Denke, daß Gott mit uns Deutschen etwas Besonderes vorhaben muß, da er uns so schwer belädt. Wir sind das Schicksal der Welt, der weißen Rasse. Das muss jeder Geistige sehen. Dann wird manches, was zu tragen ist, leichter, weil es dann gemäß erscheint, schicksalhaft. Tragisch im edelsten Sinne: Adel und Untergang [...]" (18. IV. 1940). - "[...] Im übrigen glaube ich fest an die echte Abendländische Mission Adolf Hitlers. Wenn jetzt amerikanische und russische Analphabeten vorgeben, das Abendland vor uns 'Barbaren' retten zu müssen, so ist das doch der blödeste propagandistische Schwindel, der je ausgeheckt wurde. Wo ist in der Gegenwart bei denen eine derart geschlossene geistige Gestalt wie die meine, die mit allem Mut zur Konsequenz (Adel und Untergang) das Abendländische zusammenfassend aufgezeigt und beschworen hat?! Ich spüre wie es bei mir wieder aufwärts geht. Nur jetzt nicht nachlassen! Die drüben haben sich die Kriegsweihnachten 44 jedenfalls anders vorgestellt! [...]" (21. XII. 1944). - Die Korrespondenz seiner Witwe Hedwig mit Rössner betrifft die Herausgabe der Gesamtausgabe der Werke ihres verstorbenen Gatten, über dessen Biographie von Josef Nadler u. a. - Detaillierte Verlistung auf Anfrage.

Lightly soiled vellum covers the frame's edges. A very good impression. Czech photographer, Josef Sudek (1896-1976), INSCRIBED this to his friend Sampelik. According to the unverified story recounted when this etching was bought in Prague, Sampelik was the station manager at the rail yard in Prague. He had a large collection of recorded music, and befriended Sudek, who used to come to spend his evenings with Sampelik, listening to jazz. This engraving of Tichy's, was used by Sudek as a holiday greeting, and the photographer SIGNED and dated it in 1965.Frantisek TIchy (1896- 1961), the Czech painter, graphic artist, and illustrator, created this drypoint for Sudek in 1938. It is the first graphic work by Tichy executed in engraving. It depicts a photographer, with his head under the cloth of a large camera, focusing the lens on his subject, a tailor's dress form. The plate is SIGNED in the lower left corner, with a "T" in a circle, signifying this as the 2nd state of this engraving. See, Dvorak, Frantisek, FRANTISEK TICHY GRAFICKE DILO. Prague: SNKLU, 1961.

        John Bunyan - Pilgrim's Progress 25 year Collection (325 Volumes) - Bible

      325 Volumes of Pilgrim's Progress and other works of Bunyan. was an English writer and Baptist preacher best remembered as the author of the religious allegory The Pilgrim's Progress. In addition to The Pilgrim's Progress, Bunyan wrote nearly sixty titles, many of them expanded sermons.Bunyan came from the village of Elstow, near Bedford. He had some schooling and at the age of sixteen joined the Parliamentary army during the first stage of the English Civil War. After three years in the army he returned to Elstow and took up the trade of tinker, which he had learned from his father. He became interested in religion after his marriage, attending first the parish church and then joining the Bedford Meeting, anonconformist group in Bedford, and becoming a preacher. After the restoration of the monarch, when the freedom of nonconformists was curtailed, Bunyan was arrested and spent the next twelve years in jail as he refused to undertake to give up preaching. During this time he wrote a spiritual autobiography, Grace Abounding to the Chief of Sinners, and began work on his most famous book, The Pilgrim's Progress, which was not published until some years after his release.Bunyan's later years, in spite of another shorter term of imprisonment, were spent in relative comfort as a popular author and preacher, and pastor of the Bedford Meeting. He died aged 59 after falling ill on a journey to London and is buried in Bunhill Fields. The Pilgrim's Progress became one of the most published books in the English language; 1,300 editions having been printed by 1938, 250 years after the author's death.Request additional pictures if interested.
