        Ambush [I Robbed a Bank] (Original screenplay for the 1939 film)

      Los Angeles: Paramount Pictures, 1938. Revised White script for the 1939 film "Ambush," seen here with the title "I Robbed a Bank," which has been stricken through on the title page. A gang attempts a bank robbery, only to find that one of the gang member's sisters works there. The gang abducts her and a truck driver while attempting their getaway, and the hostages must secretly try to help the cops find the fugitives. Written by well loved humorist S.J. Perelman and his wife Laura Perelman, "Ambush" marks a significant but entertaining departure from their best-known works, such as their co-writing on Marx Brothers films "Monkey Business" and "Horse Feathers." White side-stitched studio wrappers, dated December 13, 1938, noted as production No. 1198 and copy No. 0038. Title page integral with the front wrapper, as issued. 115 eaves, with last leaf numbered D-28. Mimeograph, with blue revision pages throughout dated between 10-10-38 and 10-21-38. Very Good plus, lacking rear wrapper.

Viele haben sich in Deutschland und in Österreich niedergelassen . . . In England haben sich die Juden sehr wichtige Positionen erobert, vor allem im Zeitungswesen und im Adel. Die Juden in England haben sich bis zur Unkenntlichkeit getarnt, sie sind nur sehr schwer festzustellen. Man nimmt an, daß in London und 500.000 Juden leben, die immer mehr von Whitechapel, dem jüdischen Zentrum, in die City eindringen und in die englische Wirtschaft. Fünf Großbanken gehören den Juden, sie setzen täglich den Goldpreis für die Welt fest und beherrschen die gesamte Bekleidungsindustrie und die Warenhäuser, den Film und stellen Rundfunk die Hälfte der Vortragenden. Inzwischen ist allerdings auch in der französischen Bevölkerung die Judenfeindschaft gewachsen, aber die amtliche Politik läßt den Juden nach wie vor alle Türen offen, auch trotz aller Skandale. Anders ist es nicht zu verstehen, daß sich kürzlich der Volljude Jacques Stern zum Diktator der "öffentlichen Meinung Frankreichs" aufwerfen konnte . . ." / "Dadurch, daß der Führer den Weltkrieg als tapferster Soldat an vorderster Front miterlebt, kennt er wie kein anderer die Psychologie des Soldaten.

        Autograph letter signed ("Freud").

      "39 Elsworthy Road NW 3" (i. e. London), 24. VI. 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.

        The Defence of Freedom and Peace, a previously unknown edition, signed by Churchill and accompanied by his compliments slip on Chartwell stationery An Address by the Rt. Hon. Winston S. Churchill, C.H., M.P., to the People of the United States of America Broadcast on October 16, 1938 by the National Broadcasting Corporation

      London: Printed by St. Clements Press Ltd., 1938. First edition, only printing. This remarkable discovery is a previously unknown publication of ChurchillÂ’s 16 October 1938 Address to the American People about the Munich Agreement.  No other contemporary stand-alone publication of this speech is known.  This pamphlet is definitively contemporary, evidenced by accompanying Chartwell stationery printed: “19th November 1938 | With Mr. ChurchillÂ’s compliments.”  Moreover, it is boldly signed by Churchill on the front cover.  Of note, this pamphlet may well have been privately printed from a later-stage version of ChurchillÂ’s speech notes prior to delivery of the speech.  On 30 September 1938, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain returned from Munich to announce that he had ceded CzechoslovakiaÂ’s Sudetenland to Hitler in return for “peace in our time.”  Churchill had spent five years opposing both his party and prevailing public sentiment by tirelessly advocating rearmament and collective security.  Munich worsened relations between Churchill and Chamberlain.  Churchill now used his personal platform to appeal directly to the American people with a strikingly blunt assault on the moral and strategic infirmity of the Munich agreement and a clarion call for preparedness.  Less than a year later, in September 1939, Churchill returned to the Admiralty.  He replaced Chamberlain as Prime Minister in May 1940.  America did not formally enter the war until December 1941, but ChurchillÂ’s relationship with America and her President, with its vital material support, enabled Britain to survive the interval.  The pamphlet measures 11.25 x 8.75 inches in four-page folded leaflet format on heavy, watermarked laid paper.  The front cover is a title page with text on pages 2-4, drop-head title at the head of page 2, printer information on the lower right corner of the fourth and final page, and subject sub-headings in bold punctuating the text.  The paper size and paper type are uncommon for a speech pamphlet.  A printer is noted on the lower right rear cover, but no publisher is specified.  The layout features paragraph breaks for nearly every sentence, more analogous to the famous ‘psalm formÂ’ in which Churchill printed his speech notes, rather than to the more conventional, condensed paragraph format of published versions.  Churchill often made revisions to his speeches until the final moments preceding delivery, including this specific speech.  (ChurchillÂ’s original typed notes with his emendations are held by The Chartwell Trust and the text of these original notes is printed in Gilbert, Companion Volume V, Part 3, at pages 1216-1227.)  Comparison of this pamphletÂ’s text to ChurchillÂ’s original speech notes reveal that some hand-made emendations are not incorporated into the pamphlet.  Among the numerous changes is, significantly, the conclusion.  A substantial five-sentence passage – essentially the “hard-sell” to the American people, beginning with the line “Far away, happily protected by the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, you, the people of the United States…” – appears as the final paragraph in the pamphlet but was relocated closer to the mid-point of the speech when delivered.  Also among numerous substantive differences between the pamphlet and the speech as delivered and later published is inclusion of two blunt lines which the original speech notes show were added by hand by Churchill to the final draft: “Britain must arm.  America must arm.”  While evidence supports a conclusion that the pamphlet was printed prior to delivery of the speech, the dated compliments slip definitively bounds the publication date as no later than mid-November 1938.  Condition is superb.  We note no losses, tears, or appreciable wear or soiling.  A hint of toning and a horizontal crease – ostensibly from when the speech was originally posted - are the only signs of age or handling.  The compliments slip on Chartwell stationery is in identical condition, showing only a neat horizontal crease and mild age-toning.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1938 - 1938 Wisden - Original Hardback - Very Good for Year

      1938. Hi, This lot is an Original 1938 Hardback Wisden . It is in very good condition, the first of the new hardbacks. 1938 and 39 do tend to be quite poor this is far better than most for the year. The front and spine gilt is excellent for a poor year slight fading to the spine if being picky, the boards are very good, there are a few light marks mainly to the front (part cup of tea) and a hexagonal mark to the bottom of the spine but still nice boards. The internal pages are fabulous, slight eeakness to the hinges but far from breaking (which is common). By far superior to many of the same year. Hard to find in good condition, this is not too far off excellent. More Photos on request. Payment: Cheque

      London: Victor Gollancz Limited 1938 - First edition, first printing. Publisher's black cloth, lettered in gilt; in the original pale yellow dust jacket, lettered and ruled in black and magenta. Book near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, minor spotting to the page edges and endpapers, otherwise bright and clean interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some light wear and creasing to the extremities, minor toning to the spine and panel edges, short closed tears to the spine ends, a hint of soiling to the otherwise fresh panels. An excellent copy in the extremely fragile dust jacket. Housed in a custom clamshell box. Rebecca is a suspenseful novel that opens with the iconic line, "Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again," which immediately establishes the dream-like, haunting quality of both the novel and its main setting. The plot is narrated by the second Mrs. de Winters, the new wife of wealthy widower Maxim de Winters, who used to live at his country estate Manderley with his first wife, Rebecca. Throughout the novel, the narrator is tormented by Rebecca's former nursemaid, the sinister Mrs. Danvers, who glorifies her former mistress and attempts to break up the newlywed de Winters. However, "To suggest the story in brief compass is impossible. The reader must experience the atmosphere of impending disaster, the exquisite love story with its emotion heightened by drama, the surprises, the superb moment of melodrama." Rebecca, du Maurier's most famous novel, was adapted into the notable 1940 film by Alfred Hitchcock, whose signature style also hinged on a suspenseful development that outshone the plot itself. A Haycraft-Queen Cornerstone. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
