        La Famille Cardinal [DESIGN BINDING - Gruel] , [Degas Illustrations]

      Paris: Auguste Blaizot & Fils, 1938. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Degas, Edgar. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. 161 p. Signed by Illustrator(s). Limited edition, this no. 142 of 325 copies (plus 25 hors de commerce), in a lavish design binding, the only book considered to have been illustrated by Degas. Bound by the Parisian bookbinding atelier of Gruel, with their stamp on the front turn-in. Sarah Prideaux, one of the noted women bookbinders of the period, stated that the Gruel atelier 'is the oldest established of all described in this paper (Bookbinders and Their Craft).founded in 1811. from its earliest days the business has always had the highest reputation, both for initiative in artistic matters, as well as for irreproachable execution in the detail of its many-sided achievements. It has indeed been the nursery of all the chief binders of the time, and no other house in any country has a roll-call of such distinguished names'. Considered the only book illustrated by Degas. His close friend Ludovic Halevy, writer and librettist of Carmen, "documented Paris backstage activity in short stories gathered into one volume called La Famille Cardinal. Degas illustrated these fictional adventures of Pauline and Virginie Cardinal and their parents. Halevy, however, failed to recognize the greatness of these monotypes", which remained unpublished until 1938 when they were purchased at auction, reduced and reproduced by photogravure for this work (N.B., from web site of Virginia Commonwealth University, published January 15, 2014). ***DESCRIPTION: Binding of full rust-coloured morocco, lavishly decorated on both the front and back boards with gilt and black, in a pattern of swirls and dots recalling the gaiety and footlights of the Parisian stage; the spine has four raised bands, gilt lettering, the compartments decorated with gilt and black rules and dots; the edges of the boards have thin black and gilt lines, the turn-ins are decorated to match the boards. All edges are gilt, lined with rose-coloured watered silk doublures, with the original wraps bound in. Title page in red and black; chapter headings, initial capitals, and page numbers in red. Illustrated with 32 photogravures of monotypes by Degas, the etchings done by Maurice Potin, with an additional two in-text etchings; of the 32 photogravures, six are in full colour.

      [Shanghai 1938]. Leatherette binding, spine 3/4 chipped away & back cover lacks 3+cm. paper covering, book solid, sound, captions & preface in English/Japanese, 23 x 31 cm., 400 b.w photos, all in all good plus. FIRST & ONLY RARE EDITION GRIM JAPANESE MILITARY PHOTOS:THE FALL OF SHANGHAI & NANKING *** This work was the results of three photographers: the famous and celebrated Tamagawa Toyokichi of Osaka, the main photographer, who was assisted by Tamagawa Denn [his brother or ? relative], and Yamazaki Yoshimi. Each traveled with a different military group of the Japanese army in China, recording for posterity, the true and brutal Japanese take-over of civilian Shanghai and environs. It covers the "Incident" from July 7, 1937 -August 15, 1945. Co-editor was Nishino Yoshio. The work was officially censored by the Riku-Kai Gun Hodoh-Bu Kenn-Etsu, or the press bureau of the Japanese Imperial Navy and Army. The photograps were taken by Tamagawa Toyokichi, Tamagawa Hiroshi and Yamazaki Yoshimi. * This photographic resource was taken to record the actions of the "Glorious Japanese Army" and their successful results in the Fall of Shanghai & Nanking, China's capitol. Japan's provocation for this battle was famous incident staged by Japanese politicians, known as the "Marco Polo bridge incident."Wherein the Japanese claimed that on July 7, 1937, two Japanese military men were murdered at their post on the Marco Polo bridge by Chinese Kuomingtang regulars. After this a full-scale Japanese invasion of Shanghai and the rape and sacking of Nanking occurred. Japan's brutal air bombing of civilian targets continued. This is the record of that landing and those military assaults on the Chinese population and on Chinese soil. It was the key instrument for Japan to occupy China setting the stage for the Pacific War. * Taken from the Japanese point of view, the whole work is a celebratory publication to commemorate successful Japanese military in action during the capture of Shanghai and the brutal Rape of Nanking. Ultimately ending in the Japanese establishment of a Chinese puppet government in Nanking. This was the ultimate goal of the Japanese to militarily and politically control all of China and Manchuria as found in the secret plan of war. * This work contains superb photos of the victorious Japanese army and navy in action. From the beginning of this book, we are presented a grand view of Japan's elite and highest military officers. Excellent tipped-in photos grace this book, showing: Minster of Navy: Mitsumasa Yonai; Vice Adm- ial Kiyoshi Hasegawa and General Iwane Matsui; General S. Hata, commander of the Central China army; historic group photos of the commanders and leading officers; followed by a great number of action photos showing the advance, bombing, attacks on the Chinese and their cities. Panic in Shanghai streets as rumor spread of the eminent war breaking out. The removal of Japanese from China as they leave China homeward bound. War council meetings of the Japanese military as they prepare for the attack on Shanghai. Arrival of Japanese lan- ding party: marines and soldiers follow plain-clothes Japan- ese agents who pointed out the enemy strong-holds. China's early response to the Japanese invasion by six Chinese air- force planes. Great battle at Character Bridge by Japanese sailors, and fierce attacks. Chinese bombardment of Japanese military vessels in Pootong. Cooperation of Japanese naval & army forces to bombard coastal areas; retalitation of Japan- ese air force. Japanese sinking of Chinese shipping across the Wanpoo River, and blockade. Tremendous & terrible attac- ks on the Chinese army and civilian targets. Eastern Shang- hai, schools, universities, factories now main targets. Chi- nese poison water wells. Japanese capture of Chinese head- quarters located in Shanghai city government buildings. * Japan's air attack on Shanghai's railway superintendent offices, Chapei battle, naval air fleet attacks on Nanking, devastation of all Chinese air-dromes, arrival of massive Japanese naval vessels on the Yangtze River. Woosung landing of additional Japanese forces, air bombing of Ninpoo city and rail station, landing at Hangcow, route of Chinese. The sinking of large number of Chinese war ships, fall of Nan- king, December 17th, 1937.and the triumph march of Japanese troops through the Chenhwa Gate. * Japanese attack and capture of Tsingtao in Shantung Province the victory march of Japanese army cavalry over the famous Shanghai land-mark the Garden Bridge, and infantry marching down Nanking road. The Japanese Consulate General's office under fire from Chinese war planes, and a final review of the troops by Admiral Hata on March 10th, Japanese Army Day. * The historic establishment of the Chinese puppet government in Nanking showing the new Japanese-appointed Chinese admin- strators [collaborators !!] wearing traditional Chinese long gowns. More photos of that celebration, pomp and ceremony. * A final page shows a series of four photos: with a note in Japanese [with English translation] about the death of the editor of this book who was mortally wounded on Oct 14th, from a Chinese mortar shell; another shows the editor, Mr. Nishihara being helped by other colleagues who were photog- raphers of this book; and a photo of the actual and deadly mortar shell and the impression it left in the street ! There is a typed note tipped on to the first fly leaf in English: "As a momento of the eventful days we went through in August-October, 1937. With compliments T. Tamagawa, September 17th, 1938." * The overall condition of the binding is fairly good, there is some darkening to the covering material, and the spine covering is nearly gone, and also lacks a strip f rom about 1-5 cm. missing on the back leading edge. A small spot on the front cover also gone but polished. We are overly crit- ical on the condition of our books so be assured it's prob- ably in better condition than we express here. The book is otherwise stable, internally clean & solid, without any fox- ing or other defects whatsoever. Due to the condition, one can theorize that the book may have either survived the American fire-bombing of Osaka where it was printed, or in Shanghai where a copy remained based on the English language presentation slip tipped, one could assume it was held by a foreigner located in the war zone...perhaps a German Axis colleague or other friend. * This work shows for all time, the actual events carried out by the Japanese from their point of view. The Chinese natur- ally have & recorded a substantially different set of brutal photographs & historical works on this same battle. Suffice to say, there are very few records from the Japanese side about the fall of Shanghai and the rape of Nanking. This is certainly one of a very few, a true and definitive primary resource on resource on the subject. * CONDITION: The book was bound in a brown "leatherette" type paper covers looking like leather. There are some 3/4 of the spine cover lacking, and the back covers lack a strip at the leading edge from top to bottom, approximately 1.5 x 4 cm. wide. The work was printed on heavy paper, which is soild and firm. The binding is solid, and the book is NOT shaken. There is minor corner and edge wear to the covers. Given the age and nature of the materials used, this book is still by and large, in remarkably good condition. * RARITY: This book is rare. Printed in a Deluxe edition, binding and size for the period. It was clearly a work designed to show the world of Japan's strength and willingness to conquer China at all cost, regardless of the opinion of others. It was the "New Japan" and they were going to give the world a good look at their success over the Chinese. While the book does not state any limitation in terms of number of copies printed, this sort of word was limited to a small number of copies. By and large they were distributed to their allies and other foreign diplomatic corps as a 'warning' and 'advice' to the Japanese sentiment and eagerness to consume China. After all, just which people on the planet during this time would find such a book interesting and of benifical use ? * .

        The Sword in the Stone

      London: Collins, 1938. First edition of the first volume in the White's tetralogy, The Once And Future King. Octavo, original cloth. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with light rubbing and small chips to the extremities. T.H. White drew inspiration from both Malory's Morte d'Arthur and his own experiences as a schoolmaster when creating the story of the young, future king and Merlyn, his magical tutor. "The characterizations are exceptionally fine and the story has a perfect blend of humor and sentimentality" (Anatomy of Wonder 5-318). "Few would deny its romance and humanity" (An English Library, 56). Although White substantially revised the book for its 1958 inclusion in The Once and Future King, this original version remains "one of the finest children's fantasies of the 20th century" (Clute & Grant). Walt Disney made an animated movie adaptation of The Sword in the Stone, first released on December 25, 1963. It was awarded the Retro-Hugo Award for Best Novel for 1939.

      The New England QUarterly 1938 - John Hope Franklin. EDWARD BELLAMY AND THE NATIONALIST MOVEMENT. The author's 34-page reprint copy taken from The New England Quarterly (of pages 739-772), Volume XI, Number 4, December 1938. A fine copy in stapled green wrappers printed in black. This is the very rare first publication of this important professor of American history who spent the major portion of his academic career at the University of Chicago. There is a hand correction in the text, most likely by the author, on page 747 where "awakened" is crossed through in blue ink and "awoke" written in above. We do not know if this article was ever republished in this form. Franklin was the most prominent African-American historian of his time and went on to a long and distinguished academic career. Duke University has posted a 9-page bibliography of Franklin's publications on the internet. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        (Photo album): Crookston, Minnesota

      Crookston, Minnesota, 1938. Fair. Octavo album. Spiral bound in flexible cloth wrappers. 121 gelatin silver images, various sizes, 3" x 4" probably being near the average. Many captioned in ink with dates and locations. The spirals are largely unspiraled, wrappers and some leaves chipped, about good; images are near fine. Album kept by a young woman, probably from Crookston, Minnesota, where many of the images are identified from, although some depict visits to realtively local areas (Bemiji, Grand Forks, N.D.) or vacations (Miami Beach and Lexington, Kentucky). The earliest images depict the compiler (usually identified as "Me") as a (probably high school) drum majorette, and later as a young wife (married to "John") and mother. Probably the largest percentage of identified images come from Crookston, and there are several images of the Crookston Pirates, a professional baseball team in the Northern League, with several players identified - it is possilbe that "John" was on the team. A pleasing albeit somewhat pedestrian album, in need of some modest preservation.

        Quatorze dessins originaux de nus féminins]

      - QUATORZE DESSINS ORIGINAUX de nus féminins, monogrammés et datés, en couleurs, exécutés à la mine de plomb, à l'aquarelle et au pastel, à Berlin vers 1938. Ces dessins au format: 21cm x12cm sont montés sur des feuilles de fort papier couleur chamois de 27cm x18 cm, et protégés par des serpentes de papier sulfurisé décoré. L'ensemble est présenté dans une reliure d’époque à spirale, plats en pleine toile écrue. Les femmes dévêtues ont le style des vedettes du music-hall des années trente. Ces compositions témoignent de la prédilection quasi obsessionnelle de l'artiste pour les parties pointues du corps féminin (seins, ongles) et de ses accessoires (talons de chaussures). Ces dessins sont d'une belle facture et d'un trait léger et précis. Leur habile dessinateur, Clemens SCHMALSTICH (1880-1960) était aussi et surtout un compositeur allemand d'opéras et de musiques de films et chef d'orchestre. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Gone with the Wind (Cast Signed)

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1938. Later printing. Very Good +/Very Good +. One of the copies that was circulated by the director, Victor Fleming, to give as a gift. In this case, gifted to Stan Johnson, art director at Fox Studios, and passed down through his family. Signed by the following cast and crew: Clark Gable (Rhett Butler), Vivien Leigh (Scarlett O'Hara), Olivia de Havilland (Melanie Hamilton), George Reeves (Brent Tarleton), Fred Crane (Stuart Tarleton), Laura Hope Crews (Aunt 'Pittypat' Hamilton), Jane Darwell (Mrs. Merriweather), Butterfly McQueen (Prissy), Alicia Rhett (India), Will Price (technical advisor), Richard Mueller (color consultant), and Ridgeway Callow (Assistant Director). Also signed by the wife of the recipient, Leola Y. Johnson. Passed to Stan and Leola's son James Douglas, an actor who was active from the late 1950s until the 80s, and then to his son, Cort Douglas (with signed letter of provenance from him). Grey cloth with titles stamped in blue, original dust jacket. Second October, 1938 printing, which makes sense given that production started late in 1938 and filming didn't begin until January 1939. Delays necessary to secure Clark Gable for the lead and find Vivien Leigh for the role of Scarlett. Book Very Good+ to Near Fine. Slight wear to the spine ends and outer hinges, minor offsetting from home-made paper dust wrapper (now discarded) on the half-title. In a Very Good+ dust jacket with several small chips and a few short tears. Book and dust jacket without repair or restoration. One of the great films of all time, signed by most of the key cast members and with impeccable provenance. A book that rarely comes on the market. Very Good + in Very Good + dust jacket.
