      London: Victor Gollancz Limited, 1938. 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. Near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, a few light spots to the page edges, bright and clean interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some light wear to the spine ends, minor toning to the spine, bright and unfaded panels. An excellent copy in a superb dust jacket. 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.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Good/Dust Jacket Included.

With the famous dust jacket image of a man being shot on the battlefield, often hailed as the greatest war photograph of all time. Rumors that this image was somehow staged are false. Gerda Taro, Capa's companion and co-photographer of this book, was killed in action at the battle of Brunete at age 27; the book is dedicated to her. Capa himself was killed stepping on a land mine in Vietnam in 1956. (Parr / Badger, v1, 139; Auer 266).

        Emigranten-Briefe aus fünf Erdteilen.

      [London]. [1938].. VII, 90 S. 8°, OBrosch.. (Exilarchiv 1245). Der Herausgeber und Koordinator der sozialdemokratischen Flüchtlingshilfe, W. Sander (1895-1978), gehörte neben Erich Ollenhauer und Fritz Heine zu den zeitgenössischen prominenten SPD-Exilanten. Er gab die 'Sozialistischen Mitteilungen' heraus, die er auch redaktionell verantwortete. Als Sander im Mai 1933 in die Tschechoslowakei emigirierte, übernahm er im Parteiauftrag die Unterstützung sozialdemokratischer Flüchtlinge. Er war dafür zuständig, die Identität sozialdemokratischer Flüchtlinge zu überprüfen, sie zu registrieren, materiell zu unterstützen und ihnen bei der weiteren Emigration aus der Tschechoslowakei behilflich zu sein. Weitere Exilstationen führten ihn nach Schweden und London. In London sollen die Emigranten-Briefe zusammengetragen und vervielfältigt worden sein. Enthält neben den beeindruckenden Erfahrungsberichten von Exilierten zudem im Anhang den Selbstdarstellungstext 'Unsere Hilfe in der CSR der Soz[ialdemokrat.] Flüchtlingshilfe'. Darin heißt es u.a.: 'Fast fünf Jahre herrscht in Deutschland die Hitlerdiktatur und zwingt noch immer aufs neue zahlreiche Menschen, deren Leben und Freiheit in Deutschland ernst gefährdet ist, in fremden Ländern ein Asyl zu suchen. Seit dieser Zeit hatte die Sozialdemokratische Flüchtlingshilfe in Prag 3.200 Flüchtlingsfälle zu bearbeiten [...].' Auf lachsfarbenem Durchschlagpapier maschinenschriftl. vervielfältigt.

        Marvels of the Insect World

      New York: D. Appleton-Century Company, 1938. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing (spine ends pushed, tiny tear to spine head, light wear to spine ends and board bottoms), in a Very Good dust toned jacket (slight tearing to the spine head, mild rubbing to the spine panel edges, a short closed tear to the upper edge of the front panel and of the rear panel); a gathering of insect writings by the noted French entomologist who Darwin described as "an inimitable observer" and who, according to the Publisher, Maeterlinck described as "the insect's Homer" (the latter quote also has been attributed to Victor Hugo). A man who was found out by the World to be a great scientist only when he reached his old age, Fabre said of himself and his work: "Because I have stirred a few grains of sand on the shore, am I in a position to know the depths of the ocean? Life has unfathomable secrets. Human knowledge will be erased from the archives of the world before we possess the last word that the gnat has to say to us." Laboring in near obscurity and giving his work away rather than selling it, Fabre fell into deep poverty and remained there until Nobel Prize-winning author Frederic Mistral found him living in destitution and publicized his plight in Le Matin, upon which the French Government gave him a literary pension. It was this incident that brought the man and the greatness of his scientific work to the attention of the French people and then to the world. This wonderful, engaging, and highly readable (by scientist and layman alike) gathering of Fabre's work is quite scarce to the market. A Very Good copy.

        (Set of three catalogues for the Lincoln Zephyr V12)

      (Paris: Draeger, c. 1938) (Paris: Draeger, c. 1938). A set of three tri-fold full-color catalogues in French advertising the 1939 Lincoln Zephyr V12. Each is lavishly illustrated in Art Deco style, with extensive use of metallic inks. The front covers of each depict the ornamented grills of the luxury cars, with the slogan "pour l'élite," while the rear covers showcase Lincolns' flathead V12 engines and provides specifications. One catalogue has three full-color posters laid in, portraying the vehicle's elegant and streamlined aesthetics as a "masterpiece of the present times." The Zephyr was, in fact, the first successful streamlined car to come to market. Another poster compares the four-door sedan to the Winged Victory of Samothrace, and another to the ornate naval ships sailed under the Sun King, Louis XIV. On the reverse of each poster, in black & white, are additional images of the car's interior and exterior. In France, the automobiles were sold by Matford, a partnership between automakers Mathis and Ford. A fine set of deluxe automobilia, produced by the noted Parisian printer, Draeger.

        While England Slept

      New York: G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 1938. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Very good minus/Good plus. This book is the precursor to Churchill's famed war speeches. This is the first U.S. edition, first printing in dust jacket. The British first edition was given the politically palatable title "Arms and the Covenant". The U.S. title is a bit more honest. The book contains a collection of speeches spanning the years 1932 to 1938 criticizing British foreign policy and warning prophetically of the coming danger. The world remembers the resolute war leader to whom the British entrusted their fate, but it is easy to forget the years leading up to the war which Churchill spent persistent, eloquent, and largely unheeded. Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods called this edition "probably the most crucial volume of speeches that he ever published". As testimony to the book's importance, a copy of While England Slept lay on "President Roosevelt's bedside table, with key passages, including an analysis of the president's peace initiative, underscored." (William Manchester's The Last Lion, Volume II, p.305) Offered here is a very good minus copy in a good plus first printing dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is square and tight with bright red banners and silver lettering, showing minor wear to the spine ends and corners. The contents show no spotting or previous owner inscriptions or book plates. The contents do show age-toning, as well as two vertical ashesive scars to the final free endpaper verso. The bottom edge and untrimmed fore edge are clean. The red-stained top edge retains decent color, but shows some uneven fading and a faint, red ink stamp that we cannot quite read. The dust jacket, notable for fading, retains bright color. Though clean and substantially complete, it shows wear, particularly at the flap folds and hinges, with shallow chipping to the spine ends, as well as a horizontal crease at the lower half of the spine. The dust jacket is unclipped, though the original $4.00 price has been scratched out, leaving only the "$" symbol legible. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A107.2.a, Woods/ICS A44(b.1). Langworth p.193.
