        HIGH STREET

      London: Country Life Ltd., Printed at the Curwen Press, 1938. Pictorial paper covered boards plus 24 full-page colour lithographs. Chipped at head of spine, lower corner on front cover slightly bruised, else very good. Interior fine, bright and crisp. Overall, a very good plus copy. 'High Street' was published in an edition of 2000 unnumbered copies. The lithographic stones were kept for a possible reprint, but were destroyed when the Curwen Press was hit by a bomb in 1941, ruling out any post-war reprint of the book. Ravilious was appointed an official War Artist in WWII, and died when his plane was lost off the coast of Iceland in 1942. Individual lithographs from the book have fetched very high prices, unfortunately causing dealers to break up damaged copies making this a much-coveted book.. First Edition. Illustrated boards.

        Scoop

      London: Chapman & Hall Ltd., , 1938. A Novel About Journalists. Octavo. Original red and black marbled cloth, gilt lettered spine. With the dust jacket and wraparound band. Spine slightly faded; an excellent copy in the jacket with short closed tear to head of front panel, fold to rear panel, and a couple of nicks and some light rubbing to extremities. First edition, first impression, with the rare first issue dust jacket and accompanying wraparound band. The trompe l'Âœil front panel, which reproduces the torn front page of the fictional Daily Beast, William Boot's employer in the novel, was a clear pastiche of the Daily Express masthead. Memorably mocked in the novel as Lord Copper, the Express's proprietor Lord Beaverbrook immediately threatened to sue and the jacket was quickly reprinted with the offending header altered. Very few copies survive in this original state and condition.

        Der Leviathan in der Staatslehre des Thomas Hobbes. Sinn und Fehlschlag eines politischen Symbols.

      Hamburg, Hanseatische Verlagsanstalt, 1938. 132 S. OLwd. OU. Seltene erste Ausgabe. (Umschlag mit hinterlegten Randläsuren und kleinen Einrissen, sonst gut) [Carl Schmitt (zeitweise auch Carl Schmitt-Dorotic)[ (* 11. Juli 1888 in Plettenberg; † 7. April 1985 ebenda) war ein deutscher Staatsrechtler, der auch als politischer Philosoph rezipiert wird. Er ist einer der bekanntesten, wenn auch umstrittensten deutschen Staats- und Völkerrechtler des 20. Jahrhunderts. Als „Kronjurist des Dritten Reiches“ (Waldemar Gurian) galt Schmitt nach 1945 als kompromittiert. Sein im Katholizismus verwurzeltes Denken kreiste um Fragen der Macht, der Gewalt und der Rechtsverwirklichung. Neben dem Staats- und Verfassungsrecht streifen seine Veröffentlichungen zahlreiche weitere Disziplinen wie Politikwissenschaft, Soziologie, Theologie, Germanistik und Philosophie. Sein breitgespanntes Œuvre umfasst außer juristischen und politischen Arbeiten verschiedene weitere Textgattungen, etwa Satiren, Reisenotizen, ideengeschichtliche Untersuchungen oder germanistische Textexegesen. Als Jurist prägte er eine Reihe von Begriffen und Konzepten, die in den wissenschaftlichen, politischen und sogar allgemeinen Sprachgebrauch eingegangen sind, etwa „Verfassungswirklichkeit“, „Politische Theologie“, „Freund-/Feind-Unterscheidung“ oder „dilatorischer Formelkompromiss“. Schmitt wird heute zwar – vor allem wegen seines staatsrechtlichen Einsatzes für den Nationalsozialismus – als „furchtbarer Jurist“, umstrittener Theoretiker und Gegner der liberalen Demokratie gescholten, zugleich aber auch als „Klassiker des politischen Denkens“ (Herfried Münkler) gewürdigt – nicht zuletzt aufgrund seiner Wirkung auf das Staatsrecht und die Rechtswissenschaft der frühen Bundesrepublik. Die prägenden Einflüsse für sein Denken bezog Schmitt von politischen Philosophen und Staatsdenkern wie Thomas Hobbes, Niccolò Machiavelli, Aristoteles,] Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Juan Donoso Cortés oder Zeitgenossen wie Georges Sorel und Vilfredo Pareto.

        Journals of John D. Lee, 1846-7 and 1859

      Salt Lake City, UT: Privately printed for Rolla Bishop Watt by Western Printing Company, 1938. First edition, limited. Hardcover. Very good/very good. SIGNED. 294 pp. Quarto [28 cm] Green cloth with gilt stamped titles on the front board and backstrip. The extremities are mildly bumped, rubbed, and faded. The tipped in portrait at page six is missing, with remnants of glue on the page. The dust jacket has a couple of small red ink stains on the front panel, is lightly rubbed, and has a number of short chips and closed tears in the edges. With sunning to the jacket's spine, and a piece of tape on the reverse, at the head of the spine. Otherwise a sharp copy of this scarce title. Inscribed by the editor to fellow historian C.M. Drury. One in an edition of 250. This copy is out of series, and the limitation page states this copy to be an exchange copy. A professional curmudgeon, Charles Kelly was the first to wade into the murky water of John D. Lee. Kelly acquired the diaries from the Lee family and from Rolla Watt, who was the nephew of W.W. Bishop, the Nevada lawyer who represented Lee at trial. For all of Kelly's spite, he was surprisingly fair to Lee and paved the way for other historians, most notably Juanita Brooks.

        Out of Africa

      New York: Random House, 1938 First American edition. Publisher's rust cloth over black spine, with a flamingo illustration to the front board in gilt, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, green top stain; in the original pictorial dust jacket, with an illustration of wild animals by a river in a dense jungle-forest to the front panel and spine, lettered in black. About fine, with a minor scuff to the front board, a hint of offsetting to the endpapers, else fine; unclipped dust jacket, with a touch of light wear to the extremities, a slight hint of faint toning to the spine and flap folds, else bright and fresh. Overall, a near fine and very handsome copy. Out of Africa is the memoir of Baroness Karen von Blixen-Finecke, a Danish author who published many of her works under the pseudonym Isak Dinesen, and is based on the author's experience living in Kenya when it was controlled by the British Empire. It offers a unique glimpse at life in colonial East Africa. Interestingly, while this first American edition credits Isak Dinesen on its dust jacket, the first English edition cites Karen Blixen as the author. In 1985, Out of Africa was adapted into a film of the same name starring Robert Redford and Meryl Streep under the direction of Sydney Pollock.. First American Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

Ten pages stapled into card wrappers, lightly sunned at edges, with the front wrapper serving as title page. With three pencilled corrections in the author's hand.

        Balalaïka.

      1938 - 22 aquarelles pour le spectacle-opérette de Mogador, sur papier cartonné beige, 21 signées en bas à droite, 4 datées (1938), rehauts d'or et de blanc, mine de plomb, feuilles de 32 x 25 environ, dessins de 30 x 15 cm. environ. Umberto BRUNELLESCHI (1879 Toscane-Italie, 1949 Paris), peintre, portraitiste, illustrateur, artisre de la mode, publicitaire, affichiste, décorateur italien. Influencé par la Comedia dell'Arte, mais également les créations de la troupe de DIAGHILEV, il crée des costumes pour les Folies Bergère, le Casino de Paris, le théâtre du Châtelet, des théâtres new-yorkais, italiens et allemands. Il commence sa carrière de costumier en 1914, avec une revue de scène aux "Bouffes parisiennes", montée par Madame RASIMI pour laquelle il crée des costumes sur les masques vénitiens. Il travaille ensuite à Florence au théâtre de la Pergola pour deux pièces (1915), puis, toujours pendant la guerre, à la Scala de Milan. A son retour à Paris, il travaille pour le music-hall : les années 1925-1938 sont celles de ses plus grands succès. Sa renommée est telle qu'en 1924, Giacomo PUCCINI lui écrit après avoir composé "Turandot" : "Cher Brunelleschi, Turandot est quasiment terminé. Je pense à vous pour les figures". L'opéra, qui se donne à la Scala en 1925, est un succès. En 1928, il travaille à New-York, sur l'invitation du danseur Léonide MASSINE. Son style se modifie et devient plus structuré et graphique : il met au point sa fameuse silhouette oblongue. Ses motifs décoratifs s'attachent à de nouvelles sources, notamment grâce à la danseuse Joséphine BAKER dans l'opérette d'OFFENBACH, "Créole", en 1934. Les années suivantes voient sa participation intensive aux revues des Folies Bergères et des théâtres du Châtelet ("Au Soleil du Mexique") et de Mogador ("Balalaïka") et enfin le "Turandot" de PUCCINI, mis en scène en 1940 (Cristina Nuzzi, Umberto Brunelleschi, Illustrazione, moda et teatro (1879-1949), F.M.R., 1979, p. 22). Etudes de costume pour "Balalaïka", l'opérette en 3 actes et 12 tableaux d’Eric Maschwitz inspirée par la Révolution Russe de 1917. Créée à Londres en 1936, Balalaïka est remarquée par Maurice Lehmann, le directeur du Châtelet, qui loue le théâtre de Mogador pour l'occasion. Ce spectacle avec couplets d’Henri Wernert, musique de Georges Posford et Bernard Grün, airs additionnels de Robert Stolz est joué pour la première fois le 24 septembre 1938. Infimes déchirures, petites rousseurs, forte brunissure sur le dernier dessin. Oeuvre originale
