        Daniel Boone 1st Signed Newbery Medal

      Viking Press, New York 1939 - First printing copy of the Newbery Medal winner. Signed without inscription on the half-title page. Book is absolutely beautiful, with clean, crisp pages, and no previous owner name or any other writing. No "handling" marks to pages.

The dust jacket has some pieces out and the award sticker is present. Original price intact at top front flap. Rare! Especially so signed. Please see all photos.

        Mein Kampf

      New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1939. Hardcover. 8vo. Light red cloth with gilt spine lettering, pictorial dust jacket. xxxvi, 1003pp. Map frontispiece. Very good/good plus. Faint binding wear, with endpapers lightly toned; jacket edgeworn and age toned, with some small chips at head of the lightly-sunned spine. First of this edition, a tight and nice copy -- entirely in English except title ("My Struggle"). This unexpurgated annotated translation (as so noted at head of spine) was undertaken by the New School for Social Research, ten of whom are given title page credit as "Editorial Sponsors" (John Chamberlain, Sidney B. Fay, John Gunther, Carlton J.H. Hayes, Graham Hutton, Alvin Johnson, William L. Langer, Walter Millis, Raoul de Roussy de Sales, George N. Shuster). NOT the more common 1943 Houghton unindexed edition of 694 pages translated by Ralph Manheim and published at a higher price, but the earlier and scarcer edition published at $1.89 (price here intact). This edition predates the slightly shorter (at 994 pages)1940 unindexed edition published by Reynal & Hitchcock with Houghton's permission. Amusingly cryptic ownership signature/address on front flyleaf also remarks "'Acquired' May 8, 1943" -- hmmm.... All told a most interesting copy of this earliest of American editions. Very scarce in nice condition and in jacket.

        Mluvici pasmo

      - This private print dating from 1939 is the combined work of Milada Souckova (1899-1983) and her husband Zdenek Rykr (1900-1940). This is the first edition of Milada Souckova's significant poetic collection, illustrated with colourful linocut illustrations by Zdenek Rykr. These linocut illustrations are among the last works of Zdenek Rykr (before his suicide due to fear of the Gestapo). Zdenek Rykr is an eminent solitary artist belonging to the Czech interwar avant-garde. He is famous not only for his free paintings but also for his work in the advertising industry (for the Orion chocolate company for example). The graphics to the book were created together with the poems and question the current problems of human society; in terms of time and topic they are close to Rykr's existential drawings of women in baths. The writer Milada Souckova was part of the cultural scene of Czech interwar avant-garde; she also co-worked with the Prague linguistic circle; after the war she emigrated to the USA. "The Speaking Zone? is one of the best pieces of Czech poetry of the 20th Century. This extensive work comments on the pathetic anxieties of the time, asks for the reasons for the big spiritual crisis in the age of reason and finds shelter in language; at the same time critically evaluates the poetic practices of avant-garde. A numbered copy (n. 32/100). A book autographed by the authors Zdenek Rykr and Milada Souckova (signed with coloured pencils on the title page). The book contains six big (15 x 30 cm) full page multicoloured linocuts + two-coloured linocut on the cover by Zdenek Rykr. The linocuts are three or four coloured, some of the matrices are repeated in more than one printings. The book has an original typographic layout. The table of contents looks like a belt stretching without any indentations from the upper to the down margin, the text - typed in sans serif typeface - is divided by rows of squares. The original cover is printed in two-coloured linocut. The book is "bound? with wire spiral. A private edition by M. Souckova and Z. Rykr, 1939, Prague. Soft cover, bound with wire spiral, 24 x 30 cm, 32 pages. A very nice condition, the cover is almost imperceptibly fingered, slightly yellowed pages, the interior is clean, the linocuts are in a perfect condition; look at the photo.

        The Local

      London: Cassell & Co, Ltd,, 1939. Octavo. Original grey paper-backed boards, titles to spine and front cover in red and black. With the original glassine dust jacket with paper flaps, as issued. With 15 four-colour lithographic plates, 1 of which is double-page, by Edward Ardizzone. Gift inscription to front free endpaper. Spine very slightly faded and bumped at ends, tiny markings to covers, endpapers a little foxed. An excellent copy in the glassine dust jacket, front panel chipped at foot, paper flaps a little creased. First edition, sole impression. "Ardizonne's illustrations are generally concerned with contemporary life untouched by political, religious or ideological conflicts. His approach is not satiric or moralistic but autobiographical, and his drawings are representational and humorous and demonstrate his affection for people" (The Dictionary of 20th Century British Book Illustrators). The book's scarcity is explained by Maurice Gorham in his Foreword to their follow-up book Back to the Local (1949): "[The Local's] career ended when unsold copies, sheets, and plates of the drawings went up together in the burning of Cassells' premises in Belle Sauvage Yard [during the Blitz]". The book is in remarkable condition; this is the best copy which we have handled.

      New Directions (1939), New York - Patchen's second book, consisting of 800 copies, this copy INSCRIBED "with respect and admiration" for W. H. Auden on 10 May 1940 and SIGNED by Patchen. Patchen's first book brought him much acclaim including comparisons to Auden, unlikely as that might seem now. Among Patchen's accomplishments was the initiation of the poetry-and-jazz movement in the late 1950s. Although Auden never seems to have figured in an important way in Patchen's life, the elder poet did take part in a benefit for Patchen two decades after being presented with this book. A truly important presentation copy. Backstrip darkened, a few nicks in the cloth. Very Good, lacking the dustwrapper [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Original Manuscript for the 4th Batman Story

      DC Comics, 1939. none. Very good. Original hand corrected typescript. The complete story from Detective Comics #30, here titled "The Batman and the Diamonds of Death" (the title changed when published to "The Return of Dr. Death"). 5 leaves (8" X 13"), 1,500 typed words plus 196 words of handwritten ink and pencil corrections, deletions, changes, and additions including a rewrite of the last scene on the back of page 5, with a sketch of a gliding Batman. Very good. This is Dark Knight incunabulum and rare as a 1 ended stick. I know of no other Batman manuscripts from this vintage, or even from near this vintage. In fact all DC super-hero manuscripts before 1945 are rare. Ex-Bob Kane. Ex-Sacripante. And (full disclosure) Ex-HA, $5,676, Nov. 23, 2013. Batman is the model for the modern super-hero without super powers. Always cryptic, fueled by his incomparable intellect, and powered by his fabulous toys, he first showed up 75 years ago in Detective Comics #27 (May, 1939) in a story written by Bill Finger and illustrated by Bob Kane. Finger also wrote the second story (in Detective Comics #28). Then Gardner Fox took over, writing the next 4 (including this one). Finger and Fox collaborated on the 7th story (in Detective Comics #33), then Fox wrote the 8th one alone before moving on to a long, influential, career at DC, co-creating The Sandman, Flash, Hawkman, and the first super-hero team-up with The Justice Society of America (forerunner of The Justice League). Literary super-heroes trace back, at least, to Gilgamesh, and then through Achilles, Aeneas, Beowulf, Merlin, and Robin Hood, to shout out a few. They divide on 2 lines, some with super powers, some without. The modern take on the independent super-hero without super powers began with Rodolphe in Sue's Mysteries of Paris, followed by such as Monte-Cristo, Sherlock Holmes and Zorro. And then there was Batman. And since then, no one's done it better.
