Jeffers, Una, (Robinson Jeffers)
1939-1947. Twelve postcards, two 2-page letters, and six one-half to full page letters. A number are undated but all are handwritten and very legible. Nineteen are to Robert Gros and one is to a Mr. Getz. They cover a wide variety of topics, including social events, invitations to visit, acknowledgements for items sent to Una, travel plans, concern for Garth and Donnan because of WWII, the family's trips to Harvard, City College, and the Library of Congress for Robinson's readings, the new play, "Medea," and Una's medical concerns. Also includes Una's mailing address label. Robert Gros, a graduate of Stanford University, was a publicist for the Pacific Gas and Electric Company and maintained extensive friendships and correspondence with many famous people. He served several presidents and was commended for his services to the American Council on NATO by Eisenhower. He was the national director of the Navy League from 1949 to 1982. He delivered more than 3,000 lectures to audiences around the world. Copies made from this collection of Una's letters and notes were sent to Jeffers scholar James Karman, editor of the new book on letters of Una and Robin and the most expert person on Una's and Robin's handwriting. Karman's March 27, 2007, email to Mears, a printout of which is included, says in part, "Yes they are genuine. There is absolutely no doubt about that." All are in very good or better condition.[Attributes: Signed Copy]

HENDERSON, Edwin Bancroft
Associated Publishers, Inc, Washington, DC, 1939. Second edition, revised. Tall octavo. 371pp., copiously illustrated with photographs. About fine in modestly chipped very good dustwrapper with a few very faint stains. This copy owned by a Hall of Fame college football coach, Harvey Harman (1900-1969), who played football for the University of Pittsburgh before coaching at Haverford College, the University of Pennsylvania, and Rutgers. Inscribed by the author to Harman with further collegial inscriptions from James Guy Tyson (1899-1970) Howard University football star, lawyer, and director of the American Red Cross; Augustus Oliver Thornton, educator and member of the Improved Benevolent, Protective Order of Elks of the World (IBPOEW); and two others. The event that appears to have brought Henderson and Harman together was the 1950 meeting of the Pigskin Club of Washington, a largely African-American fraternal organization based upon football and organized by Dr. Charles B. Fisher in 1938. Although white, Harman gave the 1950 principal address, a testament to the organization's attempt to overcome racial prejudice through democracy in sports. Both Henderson and Tyson served in various capacities in the organization, although it does not appear that Harman was a member. An exceptionally scarce title, an interesting and important work, one of the earliest comprehensive studies of the African-American in sport. The author was the captain of the National Championship basketball team for two years, and was reportedly the first African-American "professionally trained for school … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bruce Rogers, D. B. Updike (introd.), John T, McCutcheon
Oxford University Press, 1939. liv, 127 pp., illustrated, 8vo, blue cloth over boards, dustjacket. A presumably unique Bruce Rogers item. This catalogue of the landmark 1939 exhibition of the work of Bruce Rogers, the greatest American type and book designer of the twentieth century, is accompanied by a group of 17 original printing plates (measuring from 1.75 x .5 in. to 7.5 x 5.5 in.) that were used to produce the photographic illustrations in the catalogue. Each image plate or typographic text plate (the latter etched into metal) is mounted on a three-quarter-inch thick wood block. The group consists of: (a) 14 plates for the 14 illustrations following pages 6, 54, 70, 86 and 102 in the catalogue; (b) a plate for Bruce Rogers s frontispiece portrait and plate for his separate signature below; and (c) an extra, smaller plate for the Joseph Conrad photograph that precedes page 103; plus three others: a typographic plate etched in metal but apparently not used in the catalogue; and two small manuscript plates (possibly of Rogers s rounded/curlicue handwriting) also etched in metal but apparently not used. Twenty plates in all. The catalogue also contains eight pages of illustrations (not printed on coated paper) that are not covered by these 20 plates. All plates are in fine condition with, naturally, some ink stains at the woodblock edges. The catalogue cloth cover has light edgewear, pages in generally fine condition; the dustjacket is age-toned, has a short tape repair and is partially split at the hinges).

BAYLISS, E. P.
Canberra Australia Produced By The Property & Survey Branch Department Of The Interior, 1939. First edition, large issue at 1:7,500,000. Two sheets, printed in eight colours, each 1010 x 740mm and backed with linen. Two inset maps, one of The Australian Antarctic Territory, and one wider view of the Antarctic continent in relation to Australia, New Zealand and South America. A further individual map of Graham Land features in the Handbook. A fine example, a little creasing around the folds, but nevertheless most attractive with the map remaining bright and free from foxing. The handbook in near fine condition. An excellent and rare example of this landmark map of the Antarctic, in the preferred large format and with the original handbook. Hitherto, due to the reliance solely on expedition reports from the Heroic era of Antarctic exploration, no adequate map of the Antarctic had been produced, and certainly no map existed that could record Australia's claim to 40% of the continent. Commenting of the cartographic situation in 1935, Lars Christensen wrote: "I have in front of me an ordinary map of the South Polar Regions, published in 1926 by an English firm. It illustrates our common impression as to the land and sea in those far-off regions. In this map between Coats Land at 20OW and Kaiser Wilhelm Land at 90OE - a distance of thousands of kilometers - there is nothing but a little black mark at 50E, called Enderby Land, and a little further down, a dotted and tentative line, called Kemp Land. That is all." This is the cartographic deficit the Australian government sought to … [Click Below for Full Description]

"Rawlings' evocative descriptions of rural Florida and its people make The Yearling regional fiction at its best, yet the novel is universal in its depiction of the human experience. The book was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and made into a 1946 motion picture starring Gregory Peck and Jane Wyman" (Silvey, 551). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

1939. Please see book description below as well as pictures! Signed, Dated and Inscribed by Will Durant 1st Edition - 1939 - Simon and Schuster - Rare Signing of this Title by Will Durant Free Shipping Please see pictures for more information and detail William James "Will" Durant (/dəˈrænt/; November 5, 1885 - November 7, 1981) was an American writer, historian, and philosopher. He became best known for his work The Story of Civilization, 11 volumes written in collaboration with his wife, Ariel Durant, and published between 1935 and 1975. He was earlier noted for The Story of Philosophy (1926), described as "a groundbreaking work that helped to popularize philosophy". He conceived of philosophy as total perspective or seeing things sub specie totius (a phrase inspired by Spinoza's sub specie aeternitatis). He sought to unify and humanize the great body of historical knowledge, which had grown voluminous and become fragmented into esoteric specialties, and to vitalize it for contemporary application. The Durants were awarded the Pulitzer Prize for General Nonfiction in 1968 and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977.(See Wikipedia for more information) *****The book is in good to very good condition especially for its age (1939). No dust jacket. The volume has a light old book odor. Very tiny tears at base of spine very light fraying at top and bottom of spine and on couple of corners.

Anderson, Marian. (1897-1993)
1939. Powerful ensemble of materials from Marian Anderson's historic concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial on Easter Sunday, April 9, 1939. Grouping consists of two copies, front and back, of the program, the former bearing Anderson's signature in ink, and two modern reprint photographs from the concert: a detail of Anderson in three-quarter profile singing, and a general view from the Lincoln Memorial over the reflecting pool toward the Washington Monument, showing the assembly of more than 75,000 listeners. All four items double-mounted in Prussian blue mat with gold accents in gilded wood frame, each item approx. 6 x 8 inches (15 × 20 cm), total framed approx. 18 × 27.5 inches (46 × 70 cm). Pocket on back, seemingly the remainder of the programs, without the covers. Various components unexamined out of frame, but in apparently fine condition.Anderson's 1939 concert at the Lincoln Memorial was a milestone in national discourse and action about racial justice. The celebrated black contralto had been prohibited by the Daughters of the American Revolution from performing at Constitution Hall on the basis of its "white performers only" policy, and subsequently denied in the petition for an exceptional case. Eleanor Roosevelt resigned her membership to the DAR over the affair, and largely through the First Lady's arrangement, Anderson performed first at the White House and then at the Lincoln Memorial, to the attention of throngs that spilled beyond the mall, and for millions of listeners by radio broadcast. The present concert program lists Finnish pianist and composer … [Click Below for Full Description]

ORWELL, George.
London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1939. Octavo. Original blue cloth, title to spine in blue. With the dust jacket. Publisher's file copy, with their inkstamp to front free endpaper and front panel of jacket. Spine slightly faded, couple of spots to covers, light foxing to edges; an excellent copy in the exceptionally nice, crisp, jacket, spine panel with a faint mark and just very mildly toned. First edition, first impression, in the scarce dust jacket. This is one of the hardest of Orwell's novels to find in the dust jacket. One of only 2,000 copies printed, it was the last of Orwell's novels to bear the Gollancz imprint. Gollancz disapproved of the political aspects of the novel, which included a parody of an LBC meeting, and Orwell was in no doubt that "some of Gollancz's Communist friends have been at him to drop me" (Dudley Edwards, p. 289). However, to Orwell''s surprise, it was published without any major changes. Provenance: from the publisher's archive of Victor Gollancz (1893-1967), one of the revolutionary figures of 20th-century publishing. Everything about Gollancz was distinctive, from his business practices - he flouted convention, backed newcomers extravagantly, and held unique sway over the Book Society choices - to the appearance of his books. The famous yellow jackets, a collaborative design between Gollancz himself and the typographer Stanley Morison, bristle with blurbs, recommendations, and reviews in black and magenta. Prior to its acquisition by Peter Harrington, the archive was shelved together from first publication, though occasionally moved from wareh … [Click Below for Full Description]

West, Nathanael
Random House, 1939. First Printing. Red cloth over boards with orange paper label on spine. 5" x 8", pp. 3 - 238. Paper clip impression on ffe and blank title page, blued top edge, ex-libris book mark of Greg Rose tipped onto front end paper, a little askew for a book with a reputation for being loose. Cover has light fade at head and tail of spine and along top edge. DJ has small chips at top and bottom of spine, wear along the edges, several closed tears and spine borders reinforced on verso of DJ with tape. The timeless and quintessential Hollywood novel in which West explores the frustration, violence, and savagery beneath the glamour and glitz. This copy is not as flawed as the characters it portrays. The spine is straighter than Homer Simpson, socially ill-at-ease, he certainly always stood on one foot. Like Fay Greener, it lacks the talent to be make this a Fine book. But the cover is brilliant red, like the hot shot Yalie, Tod Hacket. Like Hacket, the DJ has some defects, but held together. Very good / good +. "He tried the door of the apartment. It wasn't locked, so he went in. The corpse lay stretched out on the bed, completely covered with a blanket." (p 120). [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]

Les relations entre Zweig et Cortot, pianiste de renom et spécialiste de Chopin, sont très peu évoquées par les biographes - la correspondance entre les deux couples et leurs nombreuses rencontres à travers l'Europe témoignent pourtant du lien fort qui les unissait. Zweig, qui souhaitait écrire une biographie du compositeur, avait d'ailleurs déclaré?: «?Quand les mains de Cortot n'existeront plus, Chopin mourra une seconde fois c'est le seul qui arrive à exprimer la tendresse dans la grandeur?». Cortot, de son côté, tenait également Zweig en grande estime?: «?Les jours où l'on rencontre un Zweig sont à marquer d'une pierre blanche dans la vie des êtres qui ont le respect des idées ou la curiosité de l'intelligence.?» (lettre du 13 octobre 1937).Définitivement parti d'Allemagne en 1934, … [Click Below for Full Description]

"The recognition of Egyptian rock art as something that could be closely linked to the archaeologically known cultures of the Nile Valley served as a strong impetus for further research. Several surveys and recording campaigns were organized in Upper Egypt and Nubia during during the last decade of the nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth century. The most celebrated accomplishment in the study of rock art is undoubtedly the work of German ethographer Hans Alexander Winkler in the Eastern and Western deserts of Egypt. Winkler's magnum opus, 'Rock-Drawings of Southern Egypt', is still one of the most important collections of rock-art material from Egypt" (UCLA Encyclopaedia of Egyptology). For the last month of the expedition, Winkler joined the team of O. H. Myers and Major R. A.

Octavo, bound in three quarters morocco for Henry Sotheran with gilt titles and tooling to the spine in six compartments within raised gilt bands, all edges gilt. In fine condition. The final book Churchill published before the outbreak of the Second World War, Step by Step contains 82 letters written fortnightly between 1936-1939 regarding British Foreign Policy and Defence, many of which contain early warnings and predictions about the threat of Nazi Germany. Churchill states in his preface, "When I came to read the letters through I was surprised to find that they seemed to tell the tale of these three eventful and disastrous years in a continuous flow. They are at once a running commentary upon events as they happened or were about to happen, and a narrative of what we have lived through. I therefore thought it would be right to present them to the readers of Great Britain, the Unites States, France and Scandinavia in this volume and its translations which I trust may be accepted as a faithful record."

CHURCHILL, Winston S.
[c.1939]. 3 typescripts, quarto. "Alone", 11 pp; "River", 15 pp; "Mystery", 14 pp. Each typescript held with a paper clip at head. In excellent condition. Three journalistic pieces attesting to Churchill's prodigious output during the 1930s, when he lived by his writing and when "many subjects were grist to his tireless mill. Apart from anything else, he had no Cabinet salary after 1929 and it was largely his journalism that enabled him to maintain his comfortable standard of living. He therefore accepted virtually every opportunity for publication with alacrity and professionalism. Articles may have been delivered by taxi at the last possible moment, but he never missed a copy date, even at the height of his political worries" (Frederick Woods, Artillery of Words: The Writings of Sir Winston Churchill, 1992, p. 11). A version of "Are We Alone in the Universe?" was published in the Sunday Dispatch, a Beaverbrook weekly, on 8 March 1942 under the more sensational headline "Are There Men in the Moon?" It is listed in Cohen's bibliography (C662), where he comments "Written before the war but published here [i.e. the Sunday Dispatch] for the first time. Subsequently published in Collected Essays, Vol. IV, pp. 493-8". The latter text differs somewhat from the present typescript although the opening sentence and several other passages are identical. "Mystery of the Body" is in large measure the same essay as that published under the title "What Do You Know About Yourself?"

Lettre autographe signée de Lotte Zweig adressée à Renée Chaine, compagne du pianiste Alfred Cortot, une page rédigée à l'encre noire. Traces de plis. Alors que l'Europe entre en guerre, Lotte Zweig, nouvellement mariée à l'écrivain Stefan Zweig, donne des nouvelles de leur vie dans la campagne anglaise. Elle s'adresse à Renée Chaine, compagne d'un grand ami de son mari, Alfred Cortot, pianiste de renom et spécialiste de Chopin. L'installation du couple dans une charmante maison de Bath, qui leur rappelle leur ancienne demeure du Kapuzinerberg, a rendu leur exil plus doux : "C'était un grand bonheur pour nous d'avoir cette maison qui nous occupait toutes ces semaines, car à cause de cela on oubliait pour des jours entiers les grands évènements."Les relations entre Stefan Zweig et Alfred Cortot sont très peu évoquées par les biographes - la correspondance entre le couple autrichien et français, leurs nombreuses rencontres à travers l'Europe témoignent pourtant du lien fort qui les unissait. Zweig, qui souhaitait écrire une biographie du compositeur, avait d'ailleurs déclaré?: «?Quand les mains de Cortot n'existeront plus, Chopin mourra une seconde fois c'est le seul qui arrive à exprimer la ten … [Click Below for Full Description]

Octavo, original blue cloth. Fine in a near dust jacket with light rubbing and a closed tear to the front panel. Rare in the original dust jacket. Ferdinand Pecora was appointed Chief Counsel to the U.S. Senate's Committee on Banking and Currency in January 1933. The Senate committee hearings that Pecora led probed the causes of the Wall Street Crash of 1929 that launched a major reform of the American financial system. After Pecora closed his investigations, on July 2, 1934, President Roosevelt appointed Ferdinand Pecora a Commissioner of the newly formed U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). In 1939 Pecora wrote a book about the Senate investigations titled Wall Street Under Oath: The Story of Our Modern Money Changers. On January 21, 1935, Pecora resigned from the SEC and became a judge of the New York State Supreme Court, a position he held until 1950. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]
