        A.A. Milne sends a humorous letter to his close friend lamenting rejection by Punch Magazine

      Sussex, England: , August 31, 1939. Sussex, England, August 31, 1939. 5.5" x 7.5". "One page ALS written extensively on both verso and recto, signed by A.A. Milne as ""Blue"" , his nickname given to him by his son Christopher Robin, and elsewhere in his letter as ""A.A. Milne"". Dated ""Aug 31st '39"" , 5.5"" x 7.5"" on stationary with letterhead of Cotchford Farm, Hartfield, Sussex. Expected center fold. Tiny faded stain dot. Near fine condition.A highly revealing letter with lots to sleuth about. Milne first compares some of his more boisterous articles to that of Stephen P. H Butler Leacock, ""Mr. Knox, he deliberately chose (or he told me the more ""boisterous"" - ie Leacockish - articles (burlesques and what not) as having been less reproduced than the others."" At the time, Stephen P. H Butler Leacock was the best known English speaking humorist in the world. Such period examples of Leacock's humor are:Many a man in love with a dimple makes the mistake of marrying the whole girl.Advertising may be described as the science of arresting the human intelligence long enough to get money from it.He flung himself from the room, flung himself upon his horse and rode madly off in all directions.So one can surmise from Milne's comment, that the chosen writing examples by Mr. Knox were using Milne's well known jocular humor. Further in the letter Milne also humorously laments that he sent an article to Punch magazine that was rejected by the editor who was unaware that the article was written by Milne. In his jocular accounting of this event Milne wrote :""But this will amuse you. In Punch this week is an article called The Organizer. I wrote it, at the persuasion of the family, it being exactly what happens here. Daff sent it up as by C.P. Brice from the address of a niece of mine, and it was rejected by return of post! I wrote to Knox , more in sorrow than in anger, to say that while I couldn't claim that anything I wrote was ""good enough for Punch"" it should be good enough for a few encouraging words from somebody, and that it was difficult for me to tell your writers that it was the work, and not the name which counted, if my own work was only accepted when signed""Milne's final travesty he describes in his letter was about land he was attempting to acquire in 1939 which was, unbeknownst to him, owned by Brian Thynne of Muntham Court, a family deeply trenched in UK history with the manor of Muntham dated back to the conquest. In Milne's letter he laments:""Here's another funny thing. I have been buying some land here which was said to be mortgaged to the Midland bank. Yesterday (after months of argument) my (illegible) sent the agreement drawn up as between A.A. Milne and --Brian Thynne of Muntham Court! WHY?""Brian Thynne, youngest son of Ulric Thynne, was the owner of the Victorian mansion, Muntham Court. Muntham had been home to several of the Thynne family, who were kinsmen to the Marquis of Bath. Brian became a well known aviator and from 1936 to 1939, Brian commanded 601 Squadron and in the latter year became a Fighter Command controller. He was made a CBE. After being demobbed from the RAF at the end of World War Two, his father gave him the sticky task of negotiating with the War Ministry for compensation for all the damage that had been inflicted by the military on Muntham Court during the war. It would appear that at this time Brian had placed Munthan on the market to sell (although it may have been parceled and split up) as Brian went off to live in Spain. However there is no record that Milne ever went through with the purchase.An incredibly intriguing letter spanning various unrelated events in Milne's life, none the less worthy of additional research!"

        Das Politische Plakat. Eine psychologische Betrachtung

      Munchen (Munich): Zentralverlag der NSDAP (The Nazi Party). Franz Eher Nachf., 1939. 2nd Edition. Cloth. Very Good. 8vo. 21.5 by 15.5 cm. 248 pp. Copiously illustrated in color. This work was allegedly commissioned by Hitler himself to serve as a handbook on how to design posters to serve most effectively as propaganda. To this end, Schockel analyzes at great depth the posters produced by the Entente powers in the First World War against Germany -- the posters of Britain, France, Russia and the United States. Schockel argues that the German defeat was not in small part because it lost the propaganda war, with its comparatively lame poster campaigns. Schockel also surveys briefly the entirety of poster history, before and after the First World War, with then an extensive discussion of Nazi poster art up to then. Schockel's arguments can be insightful and fascinating even when loathsome, and the posters shown are often visually compelling even when serving an invidious cause. This being a Nazi-sponsored work, there is the obligatory noxious derision of posters designed by Jewish artists, which is a muddling digression from the primary thrust of the analysis. Spine sunned. Light wear to cloth. Otherwise, a clean, tight copy, and very good or better.

Dos lisse mosaïqué de pastilles de papier rouge brique. Couverture et dos conservés. Reliure signée Pierre-Lucien MARTIN. Très bel état. Précieuse reliure de Pierre-Lucien MARTIN non signée exécutée pour sa bibliothèque personnelle, avec cette note autographe signée de Jean Vertex " A l'ami Pierre-Lucien Martin Roi de la reliure qui a sévi lui aussi contre la drogue pour la mettre en valeur par son talent". Jean Vertex a enquêté durant trois ans sur le milieu de la drogue: "J'ai donc également écarté l'enquête, le reportage et le roman, au profit d'un genre intermédiaire que je nomme tout bonnement récit et qui participe, quant à la méthode, des trois genres précédents. J'entends bien que cet ouvrage n'a pas été conçu avec l'idée d'élever un monument littéraire, mais avec l'intention d'apporter un simple témoignage Je dis ce que j'ai vu, et rien que ce que j'ai vu. J'ai écrit sans passion, non pas pour juger et condamner, mais pour raconter et révéler: à chacun de conclure ensuite". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        TEN LITTLE NIGGERS

      London: Collins, [1939]., 1939. First edition. First edition. The true first edition that precedes the U. S. edition, published in 1940 using the title AND THEN THERE WERE NONE. Still later it was titled as TEN LITTLE INDIANS. Some minor foxing to the fore-edges, else near fine copy in dust jacket with light professional restoration to the spine ends, corners, and extremities. This is the first issue dust jacket with 7s./6d. at the bottom of the front dust jacket flap, and eleven listed book titles on the rear panel. An attractive copy of one of the author's finest works in which visitors to an island are picked off one by one as the layers of criminal obfuscation increase. A Catalogue of Crime 750 says, "A Tour de force on the following trapeze: invitations go out to a group of people, all of whom have been responsible for the death of someone by negligence or intent. The island on which the party is gathered is owned by the would-be avenger of all those deaths. The events and the tension produced by the gradual polishing off of the undetected culprits are beautifully done. One improbability, well hidden, makes the whole thing plausible." Adey's Locked Room Murders 442 says "Death by various means of ten people ... out of ten ... on an isolated island." The basis for no fewer than four film adaptations, the first of which is in-arguably the definitive version was produced in 1945, and starred Barry Sullivan, Walter Houston, Judith Anderson, and Louis Hayward, a 1965 adaptation starred Hugh O'Brian, Shirley Eaton, Fabian, and Stanley Holloway, a 1974 version starred Richard Attenborough, Charles Aznavour, and Oliver Reed, and a 1989 version starred Donald Pleasence and Brenda Vaccaro. An exceptional copy of a cornerstone of crime fiction.

Ich las drüben auf Ihrer Chaiselounge mittendrin ein paar wunderbare Passagen über Plato. - Apropos Plato: Herr Olschki senior ist nun schon en route, - ihn kennen gelernt zu haben, gehört ja zu den Gewinnen meiner Amerikareise. - Es ist doch eine schöne Stadt, ein gutes reiches kräftiges Land, in dem Sie jetzt sind, Frau Rosin, - schrecklich wie man hier zerkrampft wird und die Lügen einen umringen, man kann nur die Türe zumachen [...]".

        Katharinenkirche in Hamburg mit Frachtkahn des antifaschistischen Widerständlers Wilhelm Zirpel aus Michelsdorf. Farblithographie.

      Unten rechts im Druck mit dem Monogramm "GW"der Druckerei Georg Westermann, der Jahreszahl "191(...)" und dem Namenszug des Künstlers "Johannes (...)". 100 x 70 cm., unbekannter Einband Die großformatige Lithographie zeigt die Katharinen Kirche im Abendlicht. Im Vordergrund über die gesamte Darstellungsbreite ein Frachtkahn des brandenburgischen Binnenschiffers "Wilh. Zirpel Michelsdorf", der auf ein Einzelschicksal aus der Zeit des Nationalsozialistischen Widerstandes aufmerksam macht. - Über den Binnenschiffer Wilhelm Zirpel erfahren wir aus dem Werk Jahrestage von Uwe Johnson, S. 946, Zeile 3-7 "Am 27. September 1939 wurde in Malchin der mit seinem Frachtkahn im Hafen liegende Binnenschiffer Wilhelm Zirpel aus Michelsdorf im Kreis Belzig verhaftet und am 11. Dezember 1939 zu 5 Jahren Zuchthaus verurteilt. Nach Ablauf dieser Haftzeit in Dreibergen-Bützow wurde er am 26. Januar 1945 in das KZ Sachsenhausen verschleppt. Die hohe Zuchthausstrafe verhängte man über ihn, weil er den Moskauer Rundfunk abgehört und sich in Malchin gegen den Krieg ausgesprochen hatte. - Der Maler, Lithograph und Holzschneider Johannes Mohr studierte an der Kunstgewerbe Schule in Hamburg bei J. Wohlers und A. Illies. - Farbfrisch erhaltene Lithographie mit wenigen kleinen Stockflecken.

        Jazzmen.

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company,, 1939. Octavo. Original tan cloth, lettered in blue. With the dust jacket. 32 plates from photographs. Cloth a little stained, spine tanned, endpapers browned towards the gutter, light toning else, jacket clipped on the front flap, but showing the price of $2.75 on the lower, wearing on the folds and chipping head and tail of the spine, a very good copy. First edition, this copy inscribed on the half-title, in characteristic green ink, by Louis Armstrong, "Best wishes to Louise from Louis Armstrong", and with a gift inscription to this recipient to the front free endpaper, dated in the year of publication. A classic jazz history, Jazzmen was one of the earliest books published in the US to treat jazz as worthy of serious cultural, historical and critical appreciation. A pioneering study which featured, in jazz critic John Gennari's words, "intelligent musical analysis of lasting value" written by some of the best jazz writers of the era, the book had a broad appeal beyond the world of jazz specialists which hinged "on its qualities as an adventure story", written in an "American vernacular prose style ? set in notably picturesque urban neighbourhoods". The innovative use of extensive oral interviews with most of the musicians discussed only added to the book's sense of authenticity. There could be no more appropriate signer of this book than the great trumpeter Louis Armstrong, whose photograph graces the dust jacket, and who is the central figure in this "adventure story" of early jazz; chapter five of Jazzmen, is devoted entirely to Armstrong, a lengthy appreciation of his work by early jazz scholar William Russell.
