        Homage to Catalonia

      Secker & Warburg. London. 1938 First edition. Original green cloth, worn along extremities and frayed at head and tail of spine. Bds sl. soiled, paper clip mark to front e/ps, inner hinge visible but sound. VG. With the ownership signature and address of Richard Rees "R Rees 34 Wellington Sq. S.W.3" to front pastedown. With a pencil note underneath by Hugh Hudson, the British film director, best known for "Chariots of Fire","Greystoke" and "Revolution", explaining that Sir Richard Rees was a very close friend of Orwell's since 1930 and an ambulance driver with Julian Bell in Spain. Also Hudson adds, he was the part owner and editor of "Adelphi" in the late 1920's and 1930's. [This was the magazine that first published Orwell's work]. This volume is from the library of Sir Arnold Wesker and was a gift from Hudson in 1990. The book bears the ownership signature of Wesker and loosely inserted is a postcard from Hudson thanking Wesker for "the very sensitive and powerful work on Barcelona." He goes on to explain that this volume belonged to "Orwell's great friend Richard Rees... much quoted in 'the Transformation' and 'Fyrd'". Also included with this copy is a hard copy of the screenplay by Wesker for Hudson's possible film. Below in the notes are quotations from the Wikipedia biographies of Hudson and Orwell to support the provenance of this most exciting association copy of one of Orwell's scarce first editions. From Hugh Hudson's biography on Wikipedia: "He is in active development of a film adaptation of George Orwell's 'Homage to Catalonia', to star Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Gerard Depardieu".& From Orwell's biography: "He fell seriously ill in March 1929 and shortly afterwards had all his money stolen from the lodging house. Whether through necessity or simply to collect material, he undertook menial jobs like dishwashing in a fashionable hotel on the rue de Rivoli providing experiences to be used in Down and Out in Paris and London. In August 1929 he sent a copy of "The Spike" to New Adelphi magazine in London. This was owned by John Middleton Murry who had released editorial control to Max Plowman and Sir Richard Rees. Plowman accepted the work for publication.& In the spring he had a short stay in Leeds with his sister Marjorie and her husband Humphrey Dakin whose regard for Blair was as unappreciative then as when he knew him as a child. Blair was undertaking some review work for Adelphi and acting as a private tutor to a handicapped child at Southwold. He followed this up by tutoring a family of three boys one of whom, Richard Peters, later became a distinguished academic.[13] He went painting and bathing on the beach, and there he met Mabel and Francis Fierz who were later to influence his career. Over the next year he visited them in London often meeting their friend Max Plowman. Other homes available to him were those of Ruth Pitter and Richard Rees. These acted as places for him to "change" for his sporadic tramping expeditions where one of his jobs was to do domestic work at a lodgings for half a crown a day......At this time Jonathan Cape rejected A Scullion's Diary, the first version of Down and Out. On the advice of Richard Rees he offered it to Faber & Faber, whose editorial director, T. S. Eliot, also rejected it. To conclude the year Blair attempted another exporatory venture of getting himself arrested so that he could spend Christmas in prison, but the relevant authorities did not cooperate and he returned home to Southwold after two days in a police cell......Blair worked at the shop in the afternoons, having the mornings free to write and the evenings to socialise. These experiences provided background for the novel Keep the Aspidistra Flying (1936). As well as the various guests of the Westropes, he was able to enjoy the company of Richard Rees and the Adelphi writers and Mabel Fierz....& On 31 January 1936, Orwell set out by public transport and on foot via Coventry, Stafford, the Potteries and Macclesfield, reaching Manchester. Arriving after the banks had closed, he had to stay in a common lodging house. Next day he picked up a list of contact addresses sent by Richard Rees..."& & &

        Der Stürmer. Deutsches Wochenblatt zum Kampfe um die Wahrheit.

      Jg. 1938 in 52 Heften und 4 Sondernummern. Mit zahlr. Illustrationen. HLwd. d. Zt. Folio. Das geifernde antisemitische Hetzblatt wurde von dem entlassenen Volksschullehrer Streicher 1923 gegründet; die letzte Ausgabe erschien im Februar 1945. Streicher wurde 1946 wegen Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit zum Tod durch den Strang verurteilt und am 16. Oktober 1946 in Nürnberg gehängt. - "Inhaltlich versuchte das Hetzblatt mit einer Mischung aus sexuellen Obsessionen und Warnungen vor einer `jüdisch-bolschewistischen Weltverschwörung`, einen radikalen Antisemitismus in der deutschen Bevölkerung zu manifestieren. Dezidiert richtete sich die Zeitung auch an Menschen mit wenig Bildung. Die zumeist kurzen und sprachlich einfach verfaßten Skandalgeschichten über Rassenschande zwischen jüdischen Männern und `arischen` Frauen, jüdische Kriminalität oder Ritualmorde erfreuten sich im NS-Regime durchaus Beliebtheit und zeigten vor allem bei jungen, in dieser Zeit heranwachsenden Menschen Wirkung. Neben großformatigen Überschriften erregte das Blatt vor allem mit einfachen Botschaften vermittelnden Karikaturen die Aufmerksamkeit der Leser. Der ab 1925 für die Zeitung arbeitende Karikaturist Philipp Rupprecht (geb. 1900) schuf unter seinem Pseudonym Fips den berüchtigten Typus des geldgierigen und zumeist unrasierten `Stürmer-Juden` mit langer gebogener Nase und hervorstehenden Augen" (zitiert aus der Online-Präsentation des Deutschen Historischen Museums). - Vorhanden ist der komplette Jahrgang, einschließlich der in diesem Jahr erschienenen Sonderhefte 8-11. Die Jahrgangsnummer (16/17) wechselt bei den Heften 46/47. - Etwas beschabt und bestoßen. Vereinzelt kl. Läsuren am unteren Rand.

Meitner: Products of the Fission of the Uranium Nucleus.London: Macmillan, 1939. All first editions.

      Four seminal papers on nuclear fission (PMM 422b,c,d). "Experiments conducted in 1938 at Berlin by Hahn and Strassman were reported to Lise Meitner, an Austrian scientist who had fled to Copenhagen to escape religious persecution. She and her nephew, O.R. Frisch, working in Niels Bohr's laboratory, found the true explanation of these phenomenon. The interpolation of a neutron into the the nucleus of a uranium atom caused it to divide into two parts and to release energy amounting to about 200,000,000 electron volts. This process bore such a close similarity to the division of a living cell that Frisch suggested the use of the term 'fission' to describe it." (Printing and the Mind of Man 422b, 422c). In the fourth article, Halban, Joliot and Kowarski established the theoretical possibility of a self-perpetuating reaction chain (PMM 422d).. Four papers in: Nature, volume 143.

        TO BEG I AM ASHAMED. The Authentic Autobiography of a London Prostitute

      New York: The Vanguard Press, 1938 First US Edition. Co-authored by Greene with Ronald Matthews. In England, the book published by Routledge, was suppressed. The "The Public Morality Council", alerted by reviews notified the Home Secretary who pressured Routledge to withdraw the book. There was quite a stir & Greene literally took off to Mexico at the time to avoid a potential libel action. As a consequence to Greene collectors, the UK 1st book is as rare as the rarest of Greene titles, especially in any sort of dustwrapper. After Routledge withdrew the book & pulped the run, it was published in Paris, June, 1938 by Jack Kahane, father of Maurice Girodias. Another edition was published in London in 1954. This is the true first US 1938 edition & very scarce in its own right & not often seen in dustwrapper. A very good or better copy showing a bit of fade to the extremities of the delicate blue cloth, partial binding offsetting at the endpapers, in an excellent original dustwrapper showing minimal use, & a touch of foxing, still about fine . Not including in Roland Wobbe's GG bibliography. A very nice copy.. 1st Edition.
