Sauk City, WI, Arkham House, 1939. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A very good copy of the first book from Arkham House, a highlight of Arkham collecting and modern speculative fiction. An important book, and a catalyst for the subsequent decades of Lovecraft study and influence. Lovecraft was an influence on not just the genre of the weird and horror, but further afield to literature in general from Borges to Philip K. Dick. His influence and influencers has been the subject of a book in itself. Without Arkham house, and particularly the present title, the landscape would've been much changed. One of only 1200 published copies. Gathers together many now well-known works including Dagon, At the Mountains of Madness, The Call of Cthulhu , The Shadow over Innsmouth, Polaris and The Haunter of the Dark. A key work. The book itself is in very good condition. The jacket has chipping and wear to the fore corners, and one triangular puncture near the head of the spine, mostly closed. One short tear nearby. Some wear to the lower spine tip. The book is in very nice shape, nothing to comment on regarding condition other than the ownership signature of Paul Spencer to the front paste-down. Spencer was a writer and editor himself and collaborated with David Keller. Spencer went on to edit the James Branch Cabell journal Kalki. A very presentable copy of a landmark work. Offered in after-market slipcase. Cover art by Virgil Finlay [6505, Hyraxia Books].All items will be packed in bubble-wrap and either a cardboard book-wrap or a box where appropriate. Items over £200 will be … [Click Below for Full Description]

LANGE, DOROTHEA; TAYLOR, PAUL
New York: Reynal & Hitchcock, 1939. First edition. FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT AMERICAN PHOTOBOOKS. "A collection of great single photographs does not necessarily make a great photographic book. The latter is, at its core, a work that is conscious not only of the art of photography, but the art of the book.. Every aspect of the publication -- design, text, and photographic content -- must form a coherent (or purposefully disjunctive) narrative; and it must break with or at least transcend tradition as it engages the contemporary world. "One example that fits the above criteria is Dorothea Lange and Paul Schuster Taylor's An American Exodus (1939). The book combined Dorothea Lange's finest images of the farm families dispossessed by the Dust Bowl and the Great Depression with a text put together by Paul Schuster Taylor of well-chosen, even poetic, words from the subjects... [As] we encounter one powerful image after another -- of barren fields, of desperate mothers, of cars laden with scant possessions, of desert roads leading West to a greener land -- counterpoised against equally powerful lines of text that parallel or intensify these images, the book leads us, chapter by chapter, on a passage through time and place and the human condition in America of the 1930s. To read An American Exodus is to experience much more than a container of superb photographs" (May Castleberry, "The Presence of the Past", in The Book of 101 Books). The Photobook. Roth 101. Complete with 112 black-and-white photographic reproductions of Lange's iconic images. Note: First issue du … [Click Below for Full Description]

Faulkner, William
Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith, New York, 1939. First edition, first issue, one of 750 copies with dropped "I" on p. 11 and in the first state binding with lettering unbroken of this work, which consistently ranks as one of the greatest works of twentieth century literature. Octavo, original cloth. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelfwear. An exceptional example. Faulkner had stated to have written As I Lay Dying in six weeks with no revisions, and its stream-of-consciousness style suggests such an immersive spontaneity. "I set out deliberately to write a tour-de-force. Before I ever put pen to paper and set down the first word I knew what the last word would be and almost where the last period would fall" (William Faulkner on As I Lay Dying). "No man ever put more of his heart and soul into the written word than did William Faulkner. If you want to know all you can about that heart and soul, the fiction where he put it is still right there" (Eudora Welty). Listed by Modern Library as one of the 100 greatest novels of the twentieth century. It is the basis for the 2013 film bearing the same name directed and co-written by and starring James Franco.

LANGEARD, Paul
1939. . 9 pp. de texte tapuscrit in-4 (290 x 220 mm) réunies par une épingle, 4 planches de photographies (245 x 320 mm) et 5 photographies volantes. Superbe ensemble d’épreuves corrigées et de photographies originales ayant composé la maquette de cet article publié en 1939 dans la revue Le Leicaïste. Il s’agit de la première publication consacrée à la photographie des insectes de cette revue de référence. Paul Langeard y définit dans un premier temps les termes macro et microphotographies, puis présente le matériel nécessaire à la réalisation des clichés. La seconde partie de l’article est consacrée aux insectes, détaillant comment les tuer, les positionner et les conserver pour en tirer les plus beaux portraits. Cet ensemble contient 24 photographies pleines de charme, la plupart légendées, dont 9 d’entre-elles seront retenues pour illustrer l’article du Leicaïste. Le nom de Paul Louis Modeste Langeard (1892-1964) est indissociable de celui du bibliophile Marcel Jeanson dont il était le bibliothécaire, et dont il dressa le catalogue des livres et manuscrits de chasse. Ancien élève de l’École des chartes, érudit reconnu des libraires de son temps, il fut l’auteur d'une Histoire de la Chasse (Le Prat, 1945) et contribua à de nombreuses revues scientifiques.

MANN, Thomas.
Stockholm: Bermann-Fischer Verlag,, 1939. Octavo. Original brown cloth, titles gilt to spine and front. With the dust jacket. An excellent copy, with the jacket only slightly toned to spine panel and a few tiny chips or minimal closed tears to extremities. First edition, first printing, an exceptional copy with the jacket, scarce thus. This Goethe-esque novel by the Nobel laureate was first published in Sweden because Mann's works were proscribed by the Nazis, and he had fled to America in the late 1930s. Mann's text was famously quoted at the Nuremberg Trials, 1946, by Hartley Shawcross, the British Chief Prosecutor: "Years ago Goethe said of the German people that some day fate would strike them: 'would strike them because they betrayed themselves and did not want to be what they are. It is sad that they do not know the charm of truth, that mist, smoke, and berserk immoderation are so dear to them, pathetic that they ingenuously submit to any mad scoundrel who appeals to their lowest instincts, who confirms them in their vices and teaches them to conceive nationalism as isolation and brutality.' With what a voice of prophecy he spoke - for these are the mad scoundrels who did those very things." Shawcross was unaware that these were not Goethe's original word's, but Mann's channelling him as a character in this novel. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]

Moscicki, Ignacy] Mo?cicki, Ignacy
[S.n.], [Warsaw], 1939. Original vintage, printed poster. Text printed in black, coat of arms of Poland in red. Size: ca. 52 × 65 cm. The first printed official communication about the German Invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939, the official Warsaw-edition. The German invasion of Poland on September 1, 1939, marked the beginning of World War II, the largest military conflict in human history, which stretched for six years and cost 60 million lives. The decisive assault of the German army was commenced at 4:45 a.m. when the Schleswig-Holstein battleship opened fire at Westerplatte in the Free City of Danzig (Gda?sk). At 6:30 the Polish Radio broadcasted the recorded message "A wi?c wojna" (So war it is), while Ignacy Mo?cicki, President of Poland formulated his appeal, and issued in placard from, to post it on the walls of the Polish cities immediately, as the first official printed communication about the outbreak of the war. In his appeal or proclamation, Mo?cicki informs the people about the German military offensive against Poland, urges them to defend the freedom and independence of the country, to stand united with the Army, and promises a decent military response. An extremely scarce and important memento of the twentieth century. Despite its importance and the relatively large number of reproductions, we could trace only two copies of this, the official Warsaw-edition in institutional holdings, both held at the Polish National Library.

Zeitschriftenverlag Aktiengesellschaft, 1939. A 1st ed. good hardcover (cloth-bound), soiling of cloth & signs of age as in image, with stamp fr. end p. (image_2) "Alfred Rosenberg* spende fur die Deutsche Wehrmacht 1939/1942 Gau Westmark". * Alfred Ernst Rosenberg (12 January [31 December 1892] 1893 â€" 16 October 1946) was the head of the Reich Ministry for the Occupied Eastern Territories and war criminal during the Nazi era. A Baltic German, he was a theorist and an influential ideologue of the Nazi Party. Rosenberg was first introduced to Adolf Hitler by Dietrich Eckart and held several important posts in the Nazi government. The author of a seminal work of Nazi ideology, The Myth of the Twentieth Century (1930), Rosenberg is considered one of the main authors of key Nazi ideological creeds, including its racial theory, persecution of the Jews, Lebensraum, abrogation of the Treaty of Versailles, and opposition to what was considered "degenerate" modern art. He is known for his rejection of and hatred for Christianity, having played an important role in the development of German Nationalist Positive Christianity. At Nuremberg he was sentenced to death and executed by hanging for war crimes and crimes against humanity. (Wikipedia) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

1939. Author: Isador LubinTitle: Bridges and Bridge Operating in New York City Published: Self-published, 1939 Publication Date: 1939 Binding: Soft cover 28x22cm, a 114pp, single-spaced typed and mimeographed (or blueprinted?) document of about 70,000 words. In exhaustive detail Lubin discusses the operations and maintenance of movable bridges--and I mean all manner of things, from oiling to fuse boxes and lighting scenarios of control boxes and communicating with landside control; uniforms, courtesies, questions given in promotion examination to bridge operators (with answers), duties of bridge operators and tenders in operating drawbridges, distress signals and on and on. Very tightly and logically written. (The only references that I can find for a Isador Lubin places a person by that name as the Chief of the Bureau of Labor Statistics, right at this same time--this Dr. Lubin was a major economic/statistics figure and I think not the author of the work offered here.) Condition: Good copy. Fair amount of dusting on the covers, though the text is clean and bright. (Condition grading is compared to the condition of the publication when it was new; to give a condition quote that states "good for its age" comparing something to a fluid state without a common denominator is almost without value, so the publication is compared to its condition when it was first published.)

Superbe ensemble d'épreuves corrigées et de photographies originales ayant composé la maquette de cet article publié en 1939 dans la revue Le Leicaïste.Il s'agit de la première publication consacrée à la photographie des insectes de cette revue de référence.Paul Langeard y définit dans un premier temps les termes macro et microphotographies, puis présente le matériel nécessaire à la réalisation des clichés. La seconde partie de l'article est consacrée aux insectes, détaillant comment les tuer, les positionner et les conserver pour en tirer les plus beaux portraits. Cet ensemble contient 24 photographies pleines de charme, la plupart légendées, dont 9 d'entre-elles seront retenues pour illustrer l'article du Leicaïste.

Ford, John (director); Nunnally Johnson (screenwriter); John Steinbeck (novel); John Carradine, Henry Fonda, Jane Darwell (starring)
Hollywood: Technicolor Motion Picture Corp, 1939. Vintage oversize double weight publicity photograph of the Joad family from the 1940 film, with the ironic Christmas message etched onto the negative in white along bottom "The Joad Family wish you a Merry Christmas and hope to see you soon." "Donn G Wescott Technicolor Motion Picture Corp" stamp and "E. S. Blake Dec 15 1939" stamp with the annotation "ESB" to right of stamp and "From Sallisaw, Okla. 13/11/39" at bottom in holograph pencil, all on verso. Based on the 1939 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by John Steinbeck. The now-famed story of a suffering sharecropper family forced to relocate, John Ford's film adaptation stays true to the tone of Steinbeck's original, which was published only three months before producer Darryl F. Zanuck acquired the rights. Though Steinbeck purportedly threatened to sue the studio using the money he made from the sale if they changed the story's intent to bring attention to the conditions of migrant workers, he was quite pleased with the end results of both Nunnally Johnson's screenwriting and the film itself. The ending to the film varies significantly from that of the book, with Steinbeck's acknowledgment of the need for such a change. Winner of two Academy Awards and nominated for five others, including Best Picture. Selected for the National Film Registry in 1989. Set in Oklahoma and en route to California, shot on location in California, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Arizona. 14 x 11 inches.

Hitchcock, Alfred (director); Daphne du Maurier (novel); Robert E. Sherwood, Joan Harrison (screenwriters); Laurence Olivier, Joan Fontaine, Judith Anderson, George Sanders (starring)
Selznick International Pictures, Los Angeles, 1939. Two early scripts for the 1940 film, consisting of (1) a 1938 Synopsis by Franclien Macconnell and (2) a 1939 Chapter Breakdown by Mary Bowie. Both scripts issued for the studio's review of the novel's content in consideration for moving ahead with adaptation to film. Franclien Macconnel, "one of the best 'readers' from Val Lewton's story department" at Selznick's studios, according to Steve Wilson's 2014 "The Making of Gone with the Wind," as well as an assistant story editor for the studio, was the studio's expert on the aforementioned film, wrote this 39 page "Synopsis," dated October 10, 1938, of Daphne du Maurier's 1938 novel for the studio for the forthcoming Alfred Hitchcock film. Rubber stamped on distribution page, script "A 2036." "Note" on first page of synopsis states: "Throughout the book no hint is given as to the heroine's name, . For synopsis purposes I am giving her the name of the authoress: Daphne.," the unnamed character of the novel would, for the film (as in du Maurier's novel), be given only the name of her husband, Mrs. de Winter. Mary Bowie, also a writer working at Val Lewton's story department, as both screenwriter and writing chapter breakdowns, at Selznick studios, wrote this 48 page "Chapter Breakdown of the Novel.," dated May 10, 1939. Rubber stamped on distribution page, script "A 2123." Both scripts are housed in a custom blue cloth, black quarter leather clamshell box, with rounded spine, raised bands, and titles in gilt.

Hitchcock, Alfred (director); Daphne du Maurier (novel); Robert E. Sherwood, Joan Harrison (screenwriters); Laurence Olivier, Joan Fontaine, Judith Anderson, George Sanders (starring)
Selznick International Pictures, Los Angeles, 1939. Early Continuity script (pre-production), stamped "TEMPORARY," with a credit for Alfred Hitchcock's wife and frequent screenwriter Alma Reville, dated August 24, 1939 "TEMPORARY" script includes screenwriting credit for Michael Hogan, who, along with Philip MacDonald, were given adaptation credits in the final film. Housed in a custom blue cloth, quarter black leather clamshell box, with spine label, title in gilt. Alfred Hitchcock's first American project, the elegant, dreamlike adaptation of Daphne du Maurier's 1938 novel of the same name, about a young woman who marries a mysterious, aristocratic widower and must contend with the spectral influence of the former mistress of the house, the eponymous Rebecca. The film was the start of Hitchcock's work in Hollywood under contract with producer David O. Selznick, a collaboration which produced six films in total, including "Spellbound" (1945), "The Paradine Case" (1947), and "Under Capricorn" (1949). Although Selznick initially argued for "Rebecca" to remain fully faithful to the plot of the novel, the Production Code Administration forbade murder to go unpunished, and as a result the film's ending differed from du Maurier's--a change which purportedly angered Selznick so strongly that he considered releasing the film without code approval. Upon its release, the film was nominated for eleven Academy Awards, winning two for Best Picture and Best Cinematography. Set on the French Riviera and southwest England, shot partially on location in Big Sur, Palos Verdes, and Point Lob … [Click Below for Full Description]
