Got to thinking about C.R.W's spurs and if you don't want to take responsibility of 'em send 'em to me. I'd sure like to hang 'em up here and Williams could take his time sending me the money … I'm going to stay here a few months yet - maybe till Christmas, then I might go to Hollywood … but I'm not going to run around anymore till then, I've got too much to do. Starting on a long novel now …"James signed "Bill James" when addressing his wife or close friends (see Frazier p. 170).C.R Williams from Calais, Montana was a rodeo star and fine bronc rider.

        Goresti i skitania: Zapiski. 1854-1877 [i.e. Sorrows and Tribulations: Notes From 1854 To 1877].

      Leningrad: Academia, 1927. FIRST EDITION. Small 8vo (150 x 110 mm). [2], 218, [6] pp. With a portrait of the author. Original Constructivist styled wrapper designed by Valentina Khodasevich (small tears of the overlapped wrappers, Soviet bookshopsÂ’ stamps on the recto of the back cover, a few spots on the back cover and extremities of the pages, few pages slightly loose, shadow on the first and last pages). Overall a very good copy, preserved in a fine fitted protective case. These memoirs are not only a portrait of a young provincial actress and her life, told simply and without embellishment, but also a collection of interesting details from theatre life of 19th century. Maria Gavrilovna Savina (1854-1915) was a renowned Russian actress. Born Maria Podramentsova into a family of stage actors, she debuted in Minsk in 1869, then joined the Mikhail Leontovsky troupe in Kharkov. While there, she married the actor N. N. Slavich who used the stage name Savin, and has been known as Marya Savina ever since. In 1874 Savina, then the leading actress at the Saratov Theatre, moved to Saint Petersburg to join the Alexandrinsky Theatre. It was there that she became famous, mostly for her parts in Alexander OstrovskyÂ’s plays (including Without a Dowry, Talents and Admirers, A Profitable Position, Hard-Earned Bread, The Last Victim, Vasilisa Melentyeva, Wild Thing), as well as in Nikolai GogolÂ’s Revizor, Ivan TurgenevÂ’s A Month in the Country and Leo TolstoyÂ’s The Power of Darkness, among others. Foreign playwrights of the time, such as Ibsen and Zuderman, also found in her an excellent performer. Some of the Russian writers of the time were mainly successful due to her performance. This first edition of 1927 was limited to 5100 copies and is now scarce. The significance of the text is such that it has been reprinted three times (1961, 1983 and 2004); of course none of these reprints feature the original impression of the justly famous Constructivist wrappers designed by Valentina Khodasevich (1894-1970), celebrated Soviet theater and graphic artist. This book was the third in the series "Theatrical Memoirs" edited by P.I Novitsky and E. Kuznetsov. The portrait of 17-years-old M.G. Savina is reproduced for the first time from her photograph taken in Kaluga in 1871; likewise, these Memoirs are fully printed for the first time from the manuscript in the Museum of Academic Theaters.

        Mikroskopisch-topographischer Atlas des menschlichen Zentralnervensystems. COPY SIGNED TO PIERRE MARIE

      Leipzig und Wien: Franz Deuticke. 1927 - Grand in-4° relié, envoi autographe à PIERRE MARIE - 226pp. 32 plates with 80 figures. Otto Marburg (* 25. Mai 1874 in Römerstadt; ¿ 13. Juni 1948 in New York City) war ein österreichischer Neurologe. Er war Professor für Neurologie in Wien und New York City und Verfasser zahlreicher Arbeiten zu Themen der Neurologie und Neuropathologie, insbesondere zur Multiplen Sklerose und zu Tumoren des Zentralnervensystems. Nach ihm ist die akute maligne Verlaufsform der Multiplen Sklerose (Typ Marburg) benannt, deren Erstbeschreibung er 1905 vornahm. Marburg wurde 1874 in Römerstadt in Österreich-Ungarn, heute Rýma?ov in Tschechien, als Sohn des jüdischen Fabrikbesitzers Max Marburg und dessen Frau Adele, geborene Berg, geboren. Er hatte sieben Geschwister, eine Schwester und seine Mutter starben 1942 im Ghetto Theresienstadt. Otto Marburg war ab 1916 mit Malvine Knoepfelmacher verheiratet. Nach Besuch des Gymnasiums in Ratibor und Olmütz studierte Marburg bis 1899 Medizin an der Universität Wien. Er wurde 1899 promoviert. Bereits während seines Studiums war er als Assistent bei Heinrich Obersteiner tätig. Seine Ausbildung in Neurologie erhielt er in Wien bei Julius Wagner von Jauregg, in Paris bei Pierre Marie und in Berlin bei Hermann Oppenheim. 1905 habilitierte sich Otto Marburg in Wien für Neurologie, 1912 wurde er zum außerordentlichen und 1919 zum ordentlichen Professor berufen. Er trat zudem 1919 die Nachfolge Heinrich Obersteiners am Neurologischen Institut an. Ab 1914 war er Mitglied er Leopoldina. Nach dem Anschluss Österreichs 1938 wurde Marburg wie zahlreiche andere Dozenten der Wiener Universität aufgrund seiner jüdischen Herkunft zwangspensioniert. Marburg und seine Frau verließen das Land und emigrierten mit Unterstützung Bernhard Sachs' über England in die Vereinigten Staaten. In den USA war er zuerst am Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City tätig, später am College of Physicians and Surgeons der Columbia University als Professor für Neurologie. Seine österreichische Zulassung beschäftigte in den Jahren 1940 und 1941 sowohl die staatlichen Behörden und Gerichte als auch den Obersten Gerichtshof der Vereinigten Staaten. Letztlich wurde Marburgs Wunsch nach einer Berufserlaubnis gerichtlich abgewiesen, ihm eine ärztliche Betätigung aber trotzdem erlaubt. - - - - - Otto Marburg (May 25, 1874 - June 13, 1948) was an Austrian neurologist known for his contributions to the understanding of multiple sclerosis and for advances in neurooncology. Marburg was born in Römerstadt in Moravia, Austria-Hungary (today Rýma?ov, Czech Republic). From 1919 to 1938 he was head of the Neurological Institute at the University of Vienna. Following the 1938 Anschluss, Marburg was forced to emigrate to the United States as a refugee. Arriving in New York City, he joined Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons as clinical professor of neurology. He was author of several standard texts about the nervous system, and a subtype of multiple sclerosis (Marburg multiple sclerosis) has been named after him. Marburg died of cancer in New York in 1948, at the age of 74. Otto Marburg was not associated with the Marburg virus, which was discovered in 1967 in the German town of Marburg.

        The Complete Sayings of Jesus

      HENRY FORDFord's signature on a presentation copy of The Complete Sayings of Jesus, with the name of recipient Harry Bennett, Ford's enforcer notorious for his violent repression of labor, engraved in gilt letters on front cover. An ironic gift, given Bennett's role!Book signed: "Henry Ford", 280 pages, 3¼x5½. Book titled The Complete Sayings of Jesus. Williamsburg, Massachusetts: D. H. Pierpont & Co., 1927. FIRST EDITION. Leather cover with gilt lettering. Signed on blank flyleaf. Edges, corners and spine at cover heavily worn and separating. Binding split at inside front and back covers. Accompanied by: B/w 8x10 of Ford and Bennett in Bennett's office. Heavily creased with major surface damage. Henry Ford (1863-1947), the Founder of Ford Motor Company, worked relentless to maximize efficiency and lower the price of his automobiles. Best known for the assembly line, Ford generated many other innovations which became standard, such as the dealer franchise system. The Model-T Ford, introduced in 1908, was affordable, easy to drive and to repair, and it revolutionized American life. Ford's other contributions include the first commercial airliner, the Ford Tri-Motor (1926). Although inclined to pacifism, Ford re-tooled his factories to make a major contribution to production in World War II. Some of Ford's personal views, especially his anti-Semitism, must be noted on the negative side of the ledger. Ford treated his workers very well, with high wages, a 40-hour week and profit-sharing. However, he was adamantly opposed to labor unions, however, and relied on Harry Bennett (1892-1979), head of his Service Department, to intimidate union organizers with strong arm tactics, including the beatings delivered at the "Battle of the Overpass" (1937). When grandson Henry Ford II assumed control of the company in 1945, his first act was to fire Bennett. Two items.

Nombreuses figures de crânes dans le texte. PREMIÈRE ÉDITION de cette fameuse et intéressante monographie. Tirage unique à 50 exemplaires sur vélin pur fil du Marais, celui-ci enrichi d'un envoi signé de l'auteur à sa cousine Gabrielle Montandon. Cette étude anthropologique, l'une des plus importantes de l'auteur, porte sur les Aïnou, ethnie vivant au nord du Japon (îles Hokkaido) et à l'extrême Est de la Russie, que Montandon rencontra au cours d'une mission en Sibérie en 1919-1920 ; elle sera suivi, dix ans plus tard, d'une seconde publication, tout aussi conséquente, La civilisation aïnou et les cultures arctiques (Paris, Payot, 1937). Montandon fut l'auteur d'un grand nombre d'ouvrages d'anthropologie scientifique. Il est tristement passé à la postérité comme étant l'un des responsables de la propagation de "l'ethno-racisme" en France, avec des thèses antisémite, négrophobe et eugéniste d'une grande violence. Cet ami de Louis-Ferdinand Céline est reconnu pour avoir été l'une des cautions scientifiques du racisme avant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Quelques feuillets déreliés. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Fiesta [The Sun Also Rises]

      Jonathan Cape, London 1927 - First edition, review copy married to a rare second printing dust jacket. Book faded at the spine and top third of rear board, offsetting to the front free endpaper, and dustiness at edges. Binding sound with contents clean and complete - very good. The jacket is moderately creased across its entirety with a small short tear at the top of the front panel. The spine is a shade faded, but withal it’s a bright, unclipped example in very good condition. ************ The first printing of this U.K. edition of Hemingway’s masterwork was published in June 1927, while the second appeared shortly thereafter either in August or September.(Grissom) With their mixed usage of the terms “printing” and “publication,” Jonathan Cape made life difficult for bibliographers. *********** Both first and second printing jackets are rare. A second printing jacket recently cleared $8K at auction, and the spine looked like it was rubbed with a block of razor blade-filled cheddar cheese. This one can be owned with peace of mind - an opportunity to possess a rare Hemingway piece, particularly as a rewarding alternative to its bank account depleting, jacketed American counterpart.

The campaign won an Effie award and a Clio award for Sendak¿s print ad illustrations. This was the most commercial use of the Wild Things which drew raves and mixed reviews from die-hard fans.
