        (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.

Lacking the DJ as per usual (As Issued?).  General overall wear. Spine shows slight fade w/ cloth rubbing. Head and tails show wear, with fraying to spine and joints extremities.  Front board gold font stamping without loss, some loss to bottom sigil. Edges show some light spotting.  Binding tight, with no issues.  Addendum follows after page 23. Order form for The Equinox of the Gods is present, and not detached. Lacking the fold out Tree of Life diagram to rear, with no evidence of being removed (As bound?).

        20 Jahre Kapitalismus und Sozialismus

      Moskau [Moscow]: Verlag fur Fremdsprachige Literaturq, 1938. Moskau [Moscow]: Verlag fur Fremdsprachige Literaturq, 1938. First Edition. Varga (1879-1964) was a Hungarian-born economist whose long career in the Comintern earned him the Order of Lenin and the Stalin Prize in 1953. The present volume is a comparative analysis of Communist and Capitalist economies in the twenty years following the 1917 Revolution. Browder, General Secretary of the CPUSA from 1934 until his ouster in 1945, has clearly given the book a close reading; there is hardly a page without some brief marginal comment, and several of the notes are quite extensive, including a lengthy transcription of statistical data on the rear endpapers. Octavo (23cm). Blue cloth, lettered in gilt; 240, [ii]pp. The copy of American Communist leader Earl Browder, with his ownership signature to front endpaper and with extensive ink and pencil annotations throughout the text and on rear endpapers, all in Browder's hand. Volume slightly shaken; gilt dulled; minor external wear; Very Good. Text entirely in German.
