Fine in a presentable, good plus dustwrapper with some chipping at the top of the rear panel, affecting some text, and a scrape on the front panel, also affecting the text of a blurb. A wildly successful Broadway comedy that made Kelly the most talked-of playwright on Broadway (a few decades later his niece, Grace, would reign first in Hollywood and then in Monaco).

Mankiewicz and featuring Spencer Tracy; and finally a 1946 Harry Beaumont version with Red Skelton and Marilyn Maxwell. Rare in jacket. .

After an unspecified family disaster, the protagonist Lucy Snowe travels from England to the fictional French-speaking city of Villette to teach at a girls' school, where she is drawn into adventure and romance.   BACKGROUND:   The Brontës were a nineteenth-century literary family associated with the village of Haworth in the West Riding of Yorkshire, England. The sisters, Charlotte (born 21 April 1816), Emily (born 30 July 1818), and Anne (born 17 January 1820), are well known as poets and novelists. They originally published their poems and novels under the male pseudonyms Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell, much like many contemporary female writers. Their stories immediately attracted attention, although not always the best, for their passion and originality. Charlotte's Jane Eyre was the first to know success, while Emily's Wuthering Heights, Anne's The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and other works were later to be accepted as masterpieces of literature.   CONDITION:  Conditions are Very Good/Excellent. Small wear to edges, slight age tone to margins, pages/hinges/text block are very good/excellent for 90 years old!!!

        The Art of the Poster. Its Origin, Evolution & Purpose

      London: Cecil Palmer, 1924. Quarto. xii, 190pp. Presentation copy with a manuscript letter laid in from the author to Frank Pick, the dedicatee. The book was given as a gift on the day before its official publication. While serving as Managing Director of the London Underground, Frank Pick revolutionized the corporation's visual brand. He commissioned both established and rising contemporary artists to create publicity posters that reflected his strong interest in modern art, architecture, and design. One of the first recruits, in 1915, was a young E. McKnight Kauffer, whose work incorporated bold elements of Cubuism and Futurism. In the letter, Kauffer thanks Pick for his encouragement and writes, "I am reminded of my timid entrance into your office some nine years ago and of the importance that interview was to my life's work. In dedicating this work to you I feel I have had one honour that I shall always regard with the greatest esteem." In the postscript, Kauffer asks if he can stop by the following week to show his completed posters for Winter Sales and the Aquarium. In the years following his first commission, Kauffer became one of the leading and most prolific poster artists of the 1920s and 30s. The letter notes that the book was given as a gift on the day before its official publication, and it bears the date stamp of Pick's office in the lower left corner. The book itself is a valuable resource on the history of poster art, paying special attention to the role of posters in advertising. Illustrated throughout with numerous black & white and color plates. Some light foxing to letter, book shows some slight discoloration to covers, else a fine copy of notable provenance.

        The Show-Off: A Transcript of Life in Three Acts

      Little Brown, Boston 1924 - First edition. Preface by Heywood Broun. Fine in a presentable, good plus dustwrapper with some chipping at the top of the rear panel, affecting some text, and a scrape on the front panel, also affecting the text of a blurb. A wildly successful Broadway comedy that made Kelly the most talked-of playwright on Broadway (a few decades later his niece, Grace, would reign first in Hollywood and then in Monaco). It was the basis for three films: a 1926 Malcolm St. Clair version featuring Louise Brooks and Ford Sterling; a 1934 Charles Resiner version re-scripted by Herman J. Mankiewicz and featuring Spencer Tracy; and finally a 1946 Harry Beaumont version with Red Skelton and Marilyn Maxwell. Rare in jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Signed 1924 Letter from James George Frazer with The Golden Bough

      The Book League of America, 1924-01-01. Hardcover. Very Good. A two-page letter from the Scottish anthropologist and author of the classic The Golden Bough, with the book it was once attached to. The letter is a single folded sheet, presumably on the author's stationary (Printed "Lanfine, Hills Road, Cambridge") dated April 23, 1924, apparently to scientist Dorothy S. Lubin. She (with David I. Macht) authored a treatise titled "A Phyto-Pharmacological Study of Menstrual Toxin" in The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics in 1924. Frazer thanks her for her article and vows to include her research about the physiological dangers of menses in future editions of the Golden Bough. Her investigations "help to show that savages are not such fools as we are apt to take them for," he writes, and signs the letter. Also includes the first volume of The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion. New York: The Book League of America, 1929. 392 p. Green cloth with gilt lettering. Vol. 1 of 2. No jacket. Very Good condition. Clean pages, rubbed lettering on spine. Bookplate on paste down. Glue stain on paste down from where letter was affixed.
