      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.

        La femme. Trente-neuf poèmes érotiques inédits avec seize dessins de l'auteur reproduits en fac-similé et un portrait gravé par P.-A. Laurens,

      Mytilène, A l'enseigne de Bilitis 1938, - in-4, 96 pp., portrait gravé en frontispice par Laurens, 16 dessins hors-texte de l'auteur, broché, couverture lie-de-vin, étiquette de titre au dos et sur le premier plat. Tirage total à 260 exemplaires, le nôtre un des 250 numérotés sur vélin, seul papier après 10 Japon. Fac-similés à taille réelle et à l'encre violette, si chère à Louÿs. Ces sonnets furent écrits du 22 mars 1890 au 15 mai 1891, alors que Louÿs avait entre 19 et 21 ans, et qu'il n'avait encore rien publié. Ces dates correspondent en partie à celles du mythique Catalogue chronologique et descriptif des femmes avec qui j'ai couché, journal tenu trois ans durant par Louÿs jusqu'en février 1892, et illustré de ses propres photographies (vendu par Christies en 2006). En ouverture, ce quatrain liminaire qui est bien dans le ton de ce qui suit: "Madame, voici l'ex-libris / D'un auteur français qui peut-être / A mouillé votre clitoris / Plus d'une fois sans vous connaître." Piqûres éparses, fortes sur l'étiquette de titre. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Death in the Making

      New York: Covici Friede, (1938). New York: Covici Friede, (1938). A fine copy with both panels of the rare dust jacket laid in (the front panel complete, with chips and tears; the rear mostly complete, also chipped and torn; flaps detached, but included). A rare book with any semblance of the jacket.. First Edition. Quarto. Robert Capa's first book. Images of the Spanish Civil War, arranged by André Kertsz: a landmark of 20th century war photography. 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. Umschlag stärker fleckig, am Falz mit kleineren Ausrissen und handschriftl. Besitzvermerk. Exemplar lediglich in zwei Bibliotheken nachweisbar. Sehr selten!
