        A BRIEF CORRESPONDENCE between "KING KONG" CO-DIRECTOR & AVIATOR MERIAN C. COOPER & Lecture Agent JAMES POND.

      New York, 1924 to 1927. [1924]. [1924]. - - A brief correspondence between the aviator/film director Merian C. Cooper and James Pond regarding arrangements for a series of lectures by Cooper. The letters, dating from September 18, 1924 through May 5, 1927 include an Autograph Letter Signed by Cooper and a lengthy note penciled by Cooper at the bottom of a list of lecture venues, 3 Typed Letters Signed for Cooper by his secretary and carbon's of Pond's letters and replies. The correspondence here begins with a short Typed Letter Signed for him by Cooper's secretary, dated September, 1924. Cooper mentions enclosing a check for an ad in Pond's catalog and requests to see the blurb "before having it set up". On January 19th, 1925, Pond writes that he made arrangements & started booking venues following Cooper's assertion that he [Cooper] had arranged with Famous Players to use his films in conjunction with his lectures. Subsequently finding out that Famous Players has severely limited where Cooper could lecture and what material he could use, Pond was able to back out of all but one engagement in Buffalo and requests that Cooper make a special effort to follow through with this one. On March 28th, Pond again requests a response from Cooper. Cooper then replies with a lengthy note penciled in his hand at the bottom of a list of venues. Except for Buffalo, most of the venues are geographical or scientific societies which Famous Players will allow with major restrictions. Cooper writes: "There will be no public admissions - no publicity unless Famous wishes. If you have objections the only date arranged is with the Buffalo Club - a society club - which was arranged before signing contract". In a Typed Note Signed for him by his secretary, Cooper urgently requests that Pond let him know "if traveling expenses are included" before turning down the "Lancaster date". A brief note by Pond on April 20, 1925 mentions enclosing the contracts for Buffalo & Bridgeport. In a brief letter, penciled and signed in full by him, Cooper writes that he will be "available next week except Thursday the thirtieth" and that he will train a substitute for that date. This letter is accompanied by a carbon of a letter to a "Mr. Beulah" neatly typed by his secretary and dated April 20, 1925. On February 21st, 1927, Pond writes to invite Cooper to join him as his guest at the Circumnavigators Club dinner. Replying in a typed letter signed for him by his secretary, addressing Pond as "Dear Jim", Cooper writes: "I would like like Hell to go to the Circumnavigators dinner but I am right in the midst of trying to complete a book, finish the picture.". On May 5, 1927, Pond, eager to have Cooper become a member, again invites the aviator/director to join him for a subsequent Circumnavigators' Club dinner and suggests that Cooper is "eligible for membership in this Club. It is a most amusing one and I think you would like to know the bunch."Pond's retained carbon copies of his letters are chipped with several short tears to the edges. Merian Cooper's letters and notes are in otherwise very good condition. The American producer & film director Merian C. Cooper (1893-1973) was also an aviator. He served as a DH-4 bomber pilot during the First World War. Shot down by German troops, he served the remainder of that war in a POW camp. Following the war, he joined the Kosciuszko Squadron, a group of volunteer Americans which supported the Polish Army in the Polish-Soviet War. He was once again shot down and, this time, incarcerated in a Soviet POW camp. Escaping after 9 months, he was subsequently decorated with Poland's highest military award the Virtuti Militari. He enlisted and served as a Colonel in the Second World War and assisted in setting up the Assam-Burma-China Ferrying Command and led many missions. Before and after the Second World War, Cooper produced movies for RKO. His most memorable production was "King Kong", a film which he co-wrote, co-directed and in which he also played an acting role.

        Zapiski poeta. Povest? [Aufzeichnungen eines Dichters. Erzählung].

      Original-Ausgabe. - Selvinsky war einer der bedeutendsten Vertreter des literarischen Konstruktivismus. Die vorliegende Erzählung ist eine Art Autobiographie des Dichters, der seine Verse hier als Werk des imaginären Lyrikers Evgeny Ney publizierte. - Berühmtheit erlangte die kleine Veröffentlichung vor allem durch die prägnante Einbandgestaltung El Lissitzkys. So nutzte er zwei fotografische Porträtaufnahmen, die er 1924 von Hans Arp fertigte, und belichtete die Negative unterschiedlich, so dass die Profilaufnahme heller und die Frontalaufnahme dunkler geriet, schließlich fügte er beide zu einem Doppelporträt zusammen. Als Hintergrund verwandte er die Dada-Zeitschrift 391, auf den Hemdkragen ließ er den Namen des imaginären Dichters setzen. - Erschienen in einer Aulage von dreitausend Exemplaren. - Die häufig fehelnde Faltkarte hier mit Einriss, sonst hervorragend erhaltenes Exemplar. - Lissitzky-Küppers 121. - Kat. Sprengel Museum 218. - Bowlt/Hernad 73. - Kat. MoMa 750. - Andel, Avantgarde Pagedesign 252.

        When We Were Very Young WITH: Winnie-The-Pooh WITH: Now We Are Six WITH: The House At Pooh Corner With Decorations by Ernest H Shepard

      London: Methuen & Co., Ltd, 1924-1928. First editions of each work in Milne's Pooh quartet. Octavo, original cloth, pictorial endpapers, top edge gilt. First issue of When We Were Very Young without p. IX numbering, jacket with song setting advert only. The first three books are each signed by A.A. Milne on the title page. Each are fine in near fine dust jackets with light rubbing and wear. Now We Are Six is signed by Milne on the title page. Housed in a custom full leather box. Illustrated by Ernest Shepard. An exceptional set, most rare and desirable signed with all being first issue books and jackets. Although Alan Alexander Milne wrote novels, short stories, poetry and many plays for adults, in addition to his work as assistant editor for Punch from 1906 to 1914, it is his writings for children that have captured the hearts of millions of people worldwide and granted Milne everlasting fame" (Silvey, 461). Milne wrote most of these poems at the request of friend and fellow poet Rose Fyleman, who was planning a new children's magazine. "On a rain-blighted holiday in Wales, [Milne] escaped from the crowd of fellow guests to the summerhouse, and for 11 days wrote a set of children's verses, one each day... 'There on the other side of the lawn was a child with whom I had lived for three years [his son, Christopher Robin]... and here within me were unforgettable memories of my own childhood.' He added more verses when he got home, enough for a book, and allowed some to be published in advance in Punch" (Carpenter & Prichard, 351). Shepard, a Punch staff artist at the time, provided delightful line vignettes, resulting in "a wonderful marriage of verse and vision. His delicately precise and fresh drawings had an instant appeal" (DNB). When We Were Very Young is second issue, as usual, with page ix numbered.

        When We Were Very Young

      London: Methuen & Co, 1924. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. E.H. Shepard. 1st edition. The first of the 4 Pooh books. One of 100 large paper copies, the smallest limitation for this title, signed by Milne and Shepard. Fine in fine dustjacket, a pristine jacket, with the spine wholly unfaded and pure blue, and on this book, that is a rare thing. Other copies in jacket offered elsewhere (chipped, torn, browned, or faded) are a practical joke on value, even when they're priced less than ours, because they're never enough less. Finest copy in the world.
