      Philadelphia: Lippincott, 1939. : , 1939. Hardcover first edition - Hurston's novel of Moses from an African-American folklore point of view - as the great 'Voodoo Man' of the Bible. In the first issue binding, finely woven reddish-brown cloth stamped in orange on the front boards and spine. Very good in a good only dust jacket (dampstaining to back cover of the dj, and affecting the rear board and spine of the book very slightly, chip missing at top of spine of dj, gift inscription dated in 1942. Despite these flaws, this is a straight and attractive copy of Hurston's rather hard to find last novel and the illustration on the front cover of the dj is striking. ) .

      The Viking Press (1939), New York - Second Printing Before Publication of this winner of the Pulitzer Prize. This copy belonged to screenwriter Jerry Cady (A WING AND A PRAYER; LAURA; FOREVER AMBER; CALL NORTHSIDE 777) to whom the author has INSCRIBED and SIGNED this book. According to Cady's daughter, the two got into a huge argument at Murphy's bar one night about the book and Cady said that this kind of thing didn't go on in America. Steinbeck then INSCRIBED the book on the dedication page "To Jerry Cady/As far as I know it, this is what happens to them/John Steinbeck." This book shows some evidence that it was carried to Murphy's on more than one occasion. The exterior shows minor edgewear, mostly at the bottom edge. The front endpaper is mostly pasted down to the front pastedown, but what can be seen shows the ink stamp of the Boulevard Circulating Library on Hollywood Blvd. The half-title page has a few small tears, and there is an old dampstain on the outer margin edge of the first few pages, including the dedication page, but not touching the Steinbeck inscription. Accompanying the book are a few pages of Cady's scrapbook that includes family photos and photos of his boat, his driver's license and Twentieth Century Fox ID card, and the 8 November 1948 headline of the LOS ANGELES EXPRESS: "Screen Writer Dies in Mystery." Cady died from an overdose of sleeping pills on his yacht off Catalina Island. He was nominated for an Oscar in 1945 for his screenplay for A WING AND A PRAYER.

      1939. Zusammen (2+2+2+2=) 8 SS. auf 4 Bll. Gr.-4to. Mit einem eh. adr. Kuvert und einer Beilage (s. u.). Alle an Dieter Keller, damals wohl im Stuttgarter Spemann-Verlag tätig. - Inhaltsreiche Briefe über die private Situation Hegenbarths (1884-1962) in den ersten Kriegsjahren, sein Ischias-Leiden, das ihn in seinem Schaen sehr einschränkte ("Aber wie geht es anderen, jüngeren Kollegen? Sie sind eingezogen und kommen überhaupt nicht zur Ausübung Ihrer berufl. Tätigkeit") und ein Illustrationsprojekt: "›Turul› macht mir sehr viel Freude und ich hoffe Ihnen das gesamte Material in zirka 20 Tagen zugehen lassen zu können". - Ende 1939 dankt er dafür, "dass ich mir je einen Abzug von den Turul-Illustrationen behalten darf". - Bietet Keller an, ihm einige Bilder zu übersenden, von denen er sich eines aussuchen und dafür als Dankeszeichen nur einen Freundschaftspreis zu zahlen brauche: "Erstaunt bin ich immer wieder, wie Sie bisher meine Arbeiten verfolgen und finde Ihr Interesse daran sehr lieb [...] Sie haben mich durch Ihre neuerliche Empfehlung beim Verlag abermals verbunden". - Die Erwähnung der Illustrationen zu Josef Bieniasz' Bärengeschichte "Turul" korrigiert die Entstehung der Arbeiten um ein Jahrzehnt. Wie viele der Illustrationsfolgen aus der Kriegszeit fand sich auch für dieses Buch erst nach Kriegsende ein Verleger, das Buch erschien 1952 im Stuttgarter Franckh Verlag, in dem Dieter Keller tätig war. - Beilagen: Ein Neujahrskarte.

        Step By Step

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1939. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is an exceptional copy of an important Churchill title. We find it increasingly difficult to locate copies of this quality. Churchill's last book published before the outbreak of the Second World War includes 82 newspaper articles focused on foreign affairs written by Churchill at the end of his "wilderness years" between March 1936 and May 1939. Many of them of course contain his warnings and predictions about Nazi Germany. Step By Step was published in June 1939. Only a few short months later, on September 1st 1939, Germany would invade Poland. Churchill would be invited to join the War Cabinet, reprising his First World War role as First Lord of the Admiralty. Less than a year after publication, in May 1940, Churchill would become Prime Minister. As a measure of Churchill's prescience and ultimate vindication, upon publication, Labour leader Clement Attlee, a political opponent who would replace Churchill as Prime Minister in late July 1945, wrote to Churchill, "It must be a melancholy satisfaction to you to see how right you were." Others were even more blunt. Sir Desmond Morton, military officer, government official, and appeasement opponent, wrote to Churchill, "Many years on, historians will read this and your speeches in Arms and the Covenant. They will wonder but I doubt they will decide what devil of pride, unbelief, selfishness or sheer madness possessed the English people that they did not rise as one man" and "call on you to lead them." Here is the British first edition, first printing, a truly fine copy in a near fine plus dust jacket, quite scarce thus. The green cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with bright spine gilt, sharp corners, and virtually no wear. The contents are immaculate with no spotting and no previous ownership marks. Faint differential toning to the endpapers confirms what the binding already tells us - that this copy has spent life jacketed. Even the page edges are notably clean apart from a hint of dust soiling to the top edge. The dust jacket for this edition was thin, making it particularly fragile, as well as light in color and highly susceptible to soiling. The dust jacket is unclipped and entirely complete, with no losses. We note only light overall soiling. The spine remains quite unusually bright; there is light soiling and trivial wrinkling to the spine ends that does not appreciably mitigate the overall excellent shelf presentation. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A111.1.a, Woods/ICS A45(a.1), Langworth p.197.

        Eigenh. Briefentwurf. [Princeton, 18. XI. 1939].

      1939. 2½ SS. auf 2 Bll. Gr.-4to. An den Vorstand der "League of American Wrighters", dem US-amerikanischen Schriftstellerverband, zu dessen Ehrenpräsidenten Thomas Mann im Juni des Jahres ernannt worden war. - Im November erschien im Bulletin der League der Artikel "France today" von Elliot Paul, den Thomas Mann verwundert "als Letzter und nur zufällig zu sehen" bekam. - "Aber der Aufsatz selbst stellt eine nur zu überzeugende Rechtfertigung dieser Notmaßnahmen dar, denn er beweist die völlige Abhängigkeit des internationalen Kommunismus von der russischen Macht- und Bündnispolitik, er dient nicht etwa sachlicher Information, sondern ist ein Akt stalinistischer Kriegssabotage, eine politische Kampfhandlung gegen die Demokratien zugunsten Hitlers und Stalins". - Besonders diesen Absatz hat Mann in dem Entwurf stark überarbeitet, eine erste Fassung wurde nach zahlreichen Änderungen vollkommen gestrichen und auf dem zweiten Blatt neu begonnen. Auch diese Fassung weicht von der gedruckten Fassung in einigen Passagen und Formulierungen ab. - "Zwischen dieser Gesinnung [seiner eigenen, "anti-totalitären und demokratischen Überzeugung"] und der einer Vereinigung, aus der Manifeste wie der Artikel ›France today‹ hervorgehen, besteht eine solche Übereinstimmung aber offenbar nicht, und so kann ich die mir freundlichst übertragene Ehrenstellung nicht länger als gerechtfertigt ansehen". - Da ihm "laute Demonstrationen widerstehen", bittet er, seinen Namen von dem ihm eingeräumten Ehrenplatz zu streichen [...]". Auch hier finden sich im Entwurf zahlreiche Streichungen und Änderungen. - Der Entwurf entstand wohl noch am 17. November, denn bereits am 18. November diktierte er seiner Frau Katja die endgültige Fassung, am 24. November wurde das Schreiben übersetzt und dürfte kurz danach abgeschickt worden sein. - Für Thomas Manns politische Stellung in seiner Exilzeit und seine Sicht auf das Verhältnis der westlichen Welt zum stalinistischen Russland von ganz enormer Bedeutung. Durch die zahlreichen Bearbeitungen hat der Briefentwurf Manuskriptcharakter. - Gelocht und mit Abdruck einer Büroklammer. Vom Vorbesitzer ehemals im Rahmen präsentiert, daher im Passepartoutausschnitt leicht gebräunt. - Mit Bleistiftanmerkung zum Empfänger und dem Hinweis "Geschenk von Frau Mann 1970". - Thomas Mann, Briefe 1937-1947, SS. 134/135.

        Japanese Album of Photographs Showing the Construction of the Atelier of Kodama Kibo and a Teahouse for Yamada Soyu

      Album containing approximately 142 black and white photographs, the first portion showing the construction of the residence/atelier of Kodama Kibo, an artist from Hiroshima who needed a larger space to accommodate his many students and disciples, the second portion with photographs and elevations showing the construction of a teahouse for Yamada Soyu, a tea ceremony grand master, together with four laid-in tissue paper sheets of elevated architectural drawings in pencil. Many photographs with hand-written captions in Japanese. Some pages with loose or missing photos, others mounted on album leaves with photo corners. 4to. Fabric-covered boards with rubbed gold-painted title to front cover. (n.p.) circa 1939. Kodama Kibo was born in Hiroshima in 1898, studied under an important Meiji-period artist, Kawai Gyokudo, and exhibited at the Teiten and Nitten shows. He took on numerous students during his lifetime, and with a group of them was responsible for restoring the dragon on the ceiling of the Benten-do Temple, which was damaged during World War II. Yamada Soyu was the 8th Grand Master of the Sohen-ryu school for Japanese tea ceremony, and taught in Turkey early in his career, counting among his students the future Atatürk. This album provides an interesting glimpse into pre-war Japanese construction techniques with designs and buildings created for two important figures. The album itself may have belonged to an architect who worked on the projects.

        Autograph letter signed to his father.

      Autograph letter signed ("Dylan"), to his father ("Dear Dad"), written a few days before the outbreak of the Second World War. Four pages, 8vo, with autograph envelope. The letter thanks him for the "Grand, magnificent dictionary...It is a most valuable thing for me to have", he expresses pleasure that his father enjoyed, his recently published The Map of Love a collection of poetry and prose. ("Do please tell me what you liked best in it, & what seemed most difficult & unattractive.."). He refers to reviews of the work although he has only read one himself, which is not surprising as the book's reception was completely overshadowed by the build up to war. He describes the first batch of dental work he had received the day before. He follows with a discussion of unfolding world events..."These are awful days, & we are very worried. It is terrible to have built, out of nothing, a complete happiness - from no money, no possessions, no material hopes - & a way of living & then to see the immediate possibility of its being exploded & ruined & If I could pray, I'd pray for peace. I'm not a man of action; & the brutal activities of war appall me - as they do every decent-thinking person. Even here the war atmosphere is thick & smelling: the kids dance in the streets, the mobilised soldiers sing Tipperary in the pubs, & wives & mothers weep around the stunted memorial in the grist." Germany invaded Poland three days later. Very good, slightly worn at folds.

        A large archive of material featuring ten (1 autogr. and 9 typed) letters to Wsevolode Grünberg and a short autograph note by Einstein, an ALS by Elsa Einstein and 2 TLS by Helene Dukas. Accompanied by a large archive of Grünberg's papers, consisting of well over 1,000 pages of material including some of his original drawings for his hydrofoil improvements, copies of his patents, etc. Princeton (NJ), Peconic, New York and Saranac Lake (NY), 1939 to 1948.

      1939. I: Albert Einstein. Mostly 4to. Altogether 11 pp. II: - Elsa Einstein: 8vo. 2 pp. - III: Helene Dukas. 4to. 2 pp. Grünberg, who later in life changed his name to Waldemar A. Craig, was an aeronautical engineer who developed an important design for the hydrofoil. The letters accompany a large archive of Grünberg's papers, consisting of well over 1,000 pages of material including some of his original drawings for his hydrofoil improvements, copies of his patents, (including a large dossier of declassified tests performed in the years immediately following WWI), photographs, correspondence, and other related documents and ephemera. - Grünberg, the nephew of a close friend of Einstein, appears to have become acquainted with Albert and his second wife Elsa sometime in the late 1920s or early 1930s, if not personally, by correspondence. In an undated letter from Berlin, written sometime before 1932, Elsa Einstein commented to Grünberg: "I am assuming you are just as kind and clever as you uncle, our dear friend. My husband and I were so glad having been able doing this small favor for you. Mr. Dunne wrote a most gracious note to us from Florida. In particular I want to thank you for the delicious grapefruits [...]" and adding "Feel free to call on me anytime, if you think I could be of help. Please be sure and do". - Apparently Grünberg took her advice, and travelling to the United States in 1939 approached Einstein for an introduction to fellow engineers in the U. S. in order to demonstrate his hydrofoil designs. The two met in June 1939 at the home of Irving Lehman in Port Chester, New York. - In addition to the introduction to the American engineering community, Einstein also agreed to handle a complex inheritance matter for Grünberg. On 1 July 1939, the same day he recommended Grünberg to his American associates, he wrote to him that he had written "a most insistent letter to Mr. Plesch in which I suggested to name an arbitrator in the inheritance matter who would be agreeable to you as well as to me and who could personally communicate with Mr. Plesch and yourself". Enclosing the letter to Dr. Lewis, Einstein advised, "I cannot understand though, how you could succeed to find a position here without a valid residence permit. I urge you to carefully investigate this subject prior to making use of the enclosed letter". Einstein continued to assist Grünberg with the inheritance issue, acting as a go-between Grünberg in the U. S. and Mr. Plesch in France. - Despite some annoyances, Einstein did what he could for Grünberg both for his inheritance and his scientific pursuits - Grünberg's personal papers concern his research on his hydrofoil designs which he first developed in France. The archive includes some of Grünberg's original drawings demonstrating applications for his design as well as some manuscript calculations in his hand, some original U. S. patent certificates for several inventions, one German patent awarded to him in 1930, original photographs, likely from the early 1930s, and several magazines including Popular Science and others discussing Grünberg's work and designs. - Detailed description available upon request.

        Forces in molecules’, pp. 340-3 in Physical Review Vol. 56, No. 4, August 15, 1939. Original printed wrappers

      Lancaster, PA & New York, NY: American Institute of Physics 1939 - Large 8vo. Complete journal issue in original printed wrappers (rust stains from staples, spine a little worn with two small areas of loss not affecting printing). FIRST EDITION of Feynman’s undergraduate thesis at MIT, “a fundamental discovery” published in The Physical Review when he was just twenty-one. “Forces or energy—that was the choice for those seeking to apply the quantum understanding of the atom to the workings of real materials. At stake was not mere terminology but a root decision about how to conceive of a problem and how to proceed in calculating . . . As Feynman conceived the structure of molecules, forces were the natural ingredients. He saw springlike bonds with varying stiffness, atoms attracting and repelling one another. The usual energy-accounting methods seemed secondhand and euphemistic. [He demonstrated that] the force on an atom’s nucleus is no more or less than the electrical force from the surrounding field of charged electrons—the electrostatic force. Once the distribution of charge has been calculated quantum mechanically, then from that point forward quantum mechanics disappears from the picture. The problem becomes classical; the nuclei can be treated as static points of mass and charge. Feynman’s approach applies to all chemical bonds” (Gleick). His discovery, now known as Feynman’s theorem or the Feynman-Hellmann theorem, has endured as an efficient approach to the calculation of forces in molecules. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE Signé A JOE BOUSQUET : " A Joé Bousquet avec la déjà vieille symphatie de Tristan Tzara". En 1931, Tristan Tzara apprend par Paul Eluard, que Joé Bousquet cloué au lit paralysé suite à une blessure de guerre. Assitôt Tzara lui fait parvenir un exemplaire de "L'Homme approximatif". Bousquet lui répond : "Depuis très longtemps je lis tout ce que vous écrivez. Je vous vois avec égal bonheur suivre une route où contre toute évidence vous êtes sul. Je récite vos poèmes. Ce n'est pas parce que vette oeuvre donne des couleurs au monde moderne qu'on peut la caractériser. Et puisque j'aurai trop vécu d'elle pour devoir me permettre de la juger, je me contenterai de l'aimer profondément.". En retour, Tzara répond : "Je me sens fort satisfait, cher Monsieur, d'exister à vos yeux quand mes plus vieux cahiers de notes fourmillent de citations étonnantes que j'avais empruntées à vos écrits d'il y a dix ans ; donnés, je crois aux Feuilles livres. Et arce que mon admiration pour vous a ses racines dans la jeunesse que je sens a travers votre signature et votre hommage." Belle provenance.

        Tannenberg. Deutsches Schicksal - Deutsche Aufgabe. Ganzleder-Luxusausgabe

      Oldenburg / Berlin, Gerhard Stalling Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1939. (noch zu Nr.11671:) . . . sowie einem weiteren Vorwort (Berlin, Juni 1939) von Hans Pfundtner (Staatssekretär im Reichsministerium des Innern, zugleich Vorsitzender des Kuratoriums für das Reichsehrenmal Tannenberg): \"Der Name Tannenberg ist ein Symbol für den Jahrhunderte währenden Kampf des Deutschtums im Osten um seine nationale Selbstbehauptung. Hier auf altgermanischen Siedlungsboden legte der Deutsche Ritterorden den Grundstein zu einem Werk deutscher Staatenbildung und deutscher Kultur, das nachfolgende Geschlechter immer wieder gegen fremde Gewalt verteidigen mussten. Die ostdeutsche Kondensation ist einen langen, harten Weg gegangen, der gekennzeichnet wird durch Opferbereitschaft und Pflichterfüllung, durch Kampf und Sieg, aber auch durch Niedergang und Elend. Erst dieses Siedlungs- und Kulturwerk, das für ewige Seiten in die Annalen der preußisch-deutschen Geschichte eingetragen ist, hat die unerlässliche Voraussetzung für ein Deutsches Reich von Weltgeltung geschaffen, indem es dem deutschen Volke die unentbehrliche Grundlage für seinen Lebensraum gab. Das vom deutschen Volk aus freiwilligen Spenden geschaffene Reichsehrenmal Tannenberg ist daher nicht nur eine Erinnerung an eine Waffentat, sondern ein Mahnmal für die geschichtliche Sendung von Ostpreußen im deutschen Osten. . . Möge das Werk Eingang in alle Schichten des deutschen Volkes finden und jedem Deutschen das Bewusstsein stärken, daß Ostpreußen in Fortführung seiner alten Tradition neue von unserem Führer Adolf Hitler gewiesene Aufgaben im Großdeutschen Reich zu erfüllen hat.\" - Aus dem weiteren Inhalt: Dr.rer.pol.Walther Grosse (Oberst im Stab der Kommandantur der Befestigungen bei Königsberg): Tannenberg 1914 (ausführliche Schilderung der berühmten Entscheidungsschlacht in Ostpreußen, mit einer vierseitigen Aufstellung: \"Kriegsgliederung der 8.

        [Correspondance privée] Lettres autographes signées adressées à Fanny Janet (1897-1994)

      1939 in-4 en feuilles A) 8 lettres autographes signées d'Edouard Pichon à sa belle-soeur (l'une incomplète, certaines avec ajouts autographes signés de Hélène Pichon) : 8 pp. in-4 et 6 pp. in-8, certaines datées (1937-1939) ; B) 34 lettres autographes signées de Hélène Pichon à sa soeur (certaines avec ajouts autographes signés de Edouard Pichon) : 59 pp. in-4 et 14 pp. in-8 [1938-1939]. Dans cette correspondance familiale, il est beaucoup question de la santé de l'un ou de l'autre des époux (Edouard Pichon souffrait d'un rhumatisme articulaire aigu et Hélène Pichon de la tuberculose), mais aussi des "Mélanges Pierre Janet" dont E. Pichon s'occupait de la publication (on apprend ainsi que "Bergson envoie 100 francs, mais n'écrira rien parce qu'il a des insomnies (Edouard ne comprend pas cette raison de ne pas écrire, au contraire !).") On apprend aussi que, trop souffrant, Pichon prévoit de faire donner l'une de ses communications de psychanalyse par "Mlle Marette" (Françoise Dolto). Dans une autre lettre de H. Pichon, il est encore question de la future Françoise Dolto : "[Edouard] a eu hier une conversation longue et animée avec Mlle Marette (psychanalyste qui vient maintenant l'aider à la consultation) sans fatigue". Helène Pichon toujours : "Hier j'ai été un instant dans les jardins de la fondation Rotschild serrer quelques mains psychanalytiques. Anna Freud très liebenswürdig, essaiera peut-être de venir voir Edouard. Jones de Londres trouve que je ressemble à mon père et déplore l'attitude de celui-ci vis à vis de la psychanalyse, qui le prive de tirer tout le parti qu'il aurait pu de son immense matériel clinique et de sa pénétration psychologique". L'antisémitisme du couple perce parfois quand ils évoquent leurs amis juifs : "Ainsi Wahl ne joue pas avec ses gosses ! Entre nous, ma chère, ce "suradultisme", comme dirait votre beau-frère, est bien juif" (EP), ou "le juif Minkowski lui a sûrement transmis la parole peut-être imprudente d'Edouard" (HP). L'ombre de la guerre qui approche est quant à elle omniprésente. Toujours, à propos des mêmes, Hélène Pichon : "Vendredi la visite des Minkowski était assez impressionnante, leur première idée de gauchards est qu'il faut "lui" rentrer dedans et leur seconde idée de philosophes humanitaires était l'horreur profonde de la guerre (ils ont un fils qui fait son service aux alpins), ils ne pouvaient même plus regarder le jardin, le beau temps, tant ils étaient angoissés." Personnage d'une grande richesse, d'une infinie curiosité et très complexe, Edouard Pichon est un contemporain et - par son intérêt pour le langage - un précurseur de Lacan, qui lui reprendra - entre autres - le concept de forclusion. Il est l'un des membres fondateurs du groupe de L'Evolution psychiatrique et de la Société Psychanalytique de Paris (dont il fut président de 1935 à 1937). Avec son oncle Jacques Damourette, il est l'auteur d'un monumental Essai de Grammaire française dont la publication s'étala sur près de 30 ans. Il fut également fervent maurrassien tout en étant dreyfusard, et le gendre de Pierre Janet sans être janetien. (Voir à son sujet, E. Roudinesco, Histoire de la psychanalyse en France, t. 1, pp. 297-320). Nota : ce document ne pourra être exporté en dehors de l'Union Européenne sans autorisation préalable du ministère de la Culture, formalité pouvant prendre plusieurs jours. Bon
