        The Story of A Life: A Tribute to Louis V Aronson [ Inventor of the Ronson Lighter]

      Newark [1929]: Colyer Printing Co., 1929. First Edition. Maroon Cloth. Fine. Inscribed by Author(s). "Louis V. Aronson Was An American Inventor, Industrialist And Philanthropist Who Is Best Remembered As The Inventor Of Ronson Lighters. Aronson Was An Exceptionally Gifted Young Man Who Graduated From Public School At The Age Of 12 Before Entering New York Technical School Specializing In Metallurgy, Practical Metal Working And Mechanical Drawing. At The Same Time, He Set Up A Laboratory In The Basement Of His Parent'S Home Where He Experimented With Plating Processes And Turned Out Money-Making Items While He Devised Ways Of Metalizing Common Items, In A Durable Finish Of Matte Gold, Including Flowers, Butterflies, Animal Claws And Baby Shoes. Aronson Demonstrated A Natural Ability For Designing Which Was Honed At The New York Technical School And Served Him Well Throughout His Life. He Excelled And Completed The School'S Four Year Academic Program In Three Years. When He Graduated In 1885, At The Tender Age Of 15, He Was Qualified As An Expert Metallurgist, Draftsman And Designer. He Returned To The School Five Years Later As An Instructor In Metallurgy For Several Years Before Devoting All His Time To His Own Company. The Year After Aronson Graduated, When He Was 16 Years Old, He Sold The Rights To A Commercially Valuable Metal Plating Process, Which He Named Ormolu, According To Urban Cummings Book Ronson, The World'S Greatest Lighter (1993, Bird Dog Books, Palo Alto, Ca.) While Retaining Full Use Of His Invention, Young Aronson Sold The Patent Rights For $5000 And Used The Proceeds To Open His Own Company Named The Art Metal Works In New York City. Not Long After Opening The Art Metal Works, Aronson Gained Public Recognition When He Won An Award In 1893 From The Belgian Government For The Creation Of The First Non-Toxic Match, And Young Businessman Aronson Received 50,000 Francs, Equaling $1816 In U.S. Dollars. In 1897 He Received A U.S. Patent (592,227) For A Match Design (Called The Wind-Match) That Would Light In Windy Conditions Or When Wet. He Continued Working On His Match Designs Including Inventing The "Birds Eye" Or "Kitchen" Match That Had A Dual-Tip Design In 1903; This Was An Important Safety Improvement Because Friction Matches Of The Day Would Sometimes Light Accidentally Especially When Stepped On Or While In One'S Pocket. He Realized That Placing A Small Friction Ignition Chemical On The Tip Instead Of The Entire Match-Head Greatly Limited Accidental Ignition. This Style Of Match Is Still In Use Today! Aronson Continued His Research On All-Weather Matches Finally Receiving U.S. Patent (1,287,819) In 1918, For A Match That Was Praised By Soldiers Who Were Fighting In Mud-Filled Trenches During World War I. His Proficiency With Matches Led To A U.S. Patent (1,295,952) For Bomb Fuses Also Used In Wwi, Which He Donated To The U.S. Government For The Duration Of The War, Later Earning His Company The Prestigious Distinguished Service Certificate From President Woodrow Wilson And The War Department. Through His Research On Matches, He Sought To Create And Refine Igniting Devices That Were Efficient, Safe And Commercially Viable. He Was Driven, You Could Say, To Find A Better Way To Produce And Sustain A Flame By A Portable Mechanical Device. By The Year 1910 He Received His First Patent For A Pocket Lighter (U.S. Pat. 965,149). His Pocket Lighter Used Flint Material Which Contained A Mixture Of Cerium And Iron According To The Patent. His Design Was A Simple Device That Created A Shower Of Sparks With The Press Of A Finger - But There Was No Sustainable Flame. Based On The Patent Dates, This Device Preceded The Pist-O-Liter (U.S. Pat. 966,153) Which He Successfully Produced That Year, But Likewise, It Only Produced Sparks. Within Three Years He Received A Patent Titled Pyrophorous Lighter, (U.S. Pat. 1,084,386) Which We Now Appreciate As The Paragon Striker Lighter, A Simple Device Capable Of Producing And Sustaining A Flame By Means Of A Steel-Tipped Wand Fitted With A Cloth-Wick Saturated In Petroleum Ether.

      New York: Lincoln Mac Veagh / The Dial Press, 1929. First Edition. First Printing. Octavo (19.5cm); navy blue cloth, with titling and publisher's logo stamped in yellow and in blind to spine and front cover; dustjacket; [viii],[2],3-308pp. Spine ends gently nudged, upper corner of rear board gently tapped (though still sharp), else very Near Fine and clean throughout. Dustjacket designed by Irving Politzer is unclipped (priced $2.00), mild, even toning to panels, with four short tears along upper edge (the longest being 7/16"), and a tiny tear to lower rear flap fold; a Near Fine, unrestored example. Burnett's first novel, a hard-boiled classic charting the rise and fall of a Chicago gangster against a backdrop of political and social turmoil. The title character, Caesar Enrico "Rico" Bandello, was based, in part, after real-life Chicago gangster Al Capone, who experienced a similar rise and fall. The novel was released in 1929, the same year that Knopf published Dashiell Hammett's Red Harvest; while Hammett's tough-guy legacy was cemented by introducing readers to the Continental Op, an argument can be made for Burnett's novel having a more enduring cultural relevance. With the release of Mervyn LeRoy's 1931 pre-code crime film, Edward G. Robinson's role as Rico would cement Burnett's character as the most imitated gangster figure in 20th century cinema, and the film's box-office popularity spawned a host of similar gangster films over the coming decades. A Haycraft-Queen cornerstone, and a rarity in this condition; a survey of jacketed copies in the trade reveals the lame, blind, and halt, with the auction record revealing badly-worn copies with cracked hinges, deep chips, or heavy restoration (the last copies in comparable condition to ours were sold in 1978 and 1970 respectively). A superb copy of the archetypal gangster novel. Hubin, p.58; Pronzini & Muller, pp.101-102.

        Production manager's notebook for Vanity Fair underwear and stockings

      [Reading, Pennsylvania], 1929. Faux leather. Good to Very Good. This 5" x 7.5" notebook contains 120 pages chock full of manuscript production tables, sizing information, test results, assorted notes, clothing labels, elastic samples, receipts, correspondence, certifications and more. A six-page pamphlet extract with information about an automatic sewing machine is laid in. All of the contents are in very nice shape. The notebook corner shows some wear and is missing its spine covering. Vanity Fair, which has grown into a $13 billion clothing conglomerate (Wrangler, Lee, Jansport, Northface, Vans, Timberland, Nautica, etc.) began in 1899 as a Pennsylvania glove and mitten company. As those sales began to wane in the 1910s it added underwear to its line. Silk underwear was added in 1913; rayon, rayon-blends, and hosiery in the 1920s; and elastic, which it used for girdles and bras, in the 1930s. During the World War II years, the company devoted all of its production lining to making parachutes. After the war, it began to only use nylon in its products and led in developing pleating, color, and print processes. In the late1960s, the company changed its name to the VF Corporation and began buying up other companies. Interestingly, in 2007, VF Corporation left the lingerie business and sold Vanity Fair to Fruit of the Loom. Snader was an important member of the company's leadership team and served in a variety of positions including Production Manager, Sales Manager, and Treasurer. No doubt a competitor would have loved to find this notebook left lying around on a restaurant table, lounge bar, or restroom vanity. Obviously a unique record of a classic American company's early years as it built itself into major lingerie supplier.

        THELMA TODD (ca. 1929) / BY GEORGE P. HOMMEL

      1929 - Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) sepia-tinted silver bromide double weight matte print still photo, USA. Starting in films in 1927, in 1929 alone Todd was making some 20 features and shorts. A girl of great intelligence, Thelma started her working career in pursuit of a teaching degree, but the winning of beauty contests (and her mother's aspirations) changed that. Though she appeared in dozens of shorts and features of various genres, it was her humor -- both physical and verbal -- which was popular with audiences then and is appreciated to this day. Her business savvy in opening her own café is what likely lead to her tragic -- and, to this day, unsolved -- death. When gangsters attempted to turn her business into a front for gambling she refused and was found dead in her own garage from carbon monoxide poisoning soon after. The cursory investigation into her death (ruled a suicide) by the notoriously corrupt Los Angeles District Attorney's office of the time is seen today as evidence that her death was gang-related. Her last three films were not released until after her death in 1936. During his early days as a portrait photographer, George P. Hommel captured a very elegant Todd. His courtesy ink stamp appears on verso

        STREET GIRL (1929)

      RKO 1929 - Vintage original 14 x 22" (35 x 55 cm.) window card poster, USA. Betty Compson, John Harron, Jack Oakie, Ned Sparks, Gus Arnheim and Cocoanut Grove Ambassador Band, Doris Eaton, dir: Wesley Reuggles; RKO. A bit of a fanciful tale, part-SNOW WHITE, part-what would become FOUR JACKS AND A JILL. A vagrant immigrant girl is brought in by four musicians. She cooks and cleans for them and, when they are fired, she helps them get a job in a jazz club associated with her mythical country. A prince comes in, kisses her, and that is used to publicize the night club. She and the prince fall in love. This musical had songs by Oscar Levant and Sidney Clare and has the distinction of being the very first official release of the newly-formed RKO Radio Pictures. Besides a short, it is also the only time the popular Gus Arnheim's Band of the Cocoanut Grove appeared in a film. It is the jazz age graphics, though, that really sells this early talkie musical. There are some repairs of a long tear, mended on back with clear tape, NEAR FINE.

She was studying drawing, in Budapest, when world war two broke out and German troops of occupation arrived. Then she settled in Paris and tried different jobs for a living. She married in 1948, had a girl and divorced, ten years later. In her studio close to Pont-Neuf where you could see a small triangle of river Seine, painters, sculptors, writers and poets use to visit her. It was the sixties. This pent house, under a glass roof was on the eighth floor. During winter you would freeze and burn during summer. Nevertheless, going up and down was good for heart and legs. People living in that old building were very friendly. Most of them became great friends of the artist and her young daughter. In 1963, a parisian gallery located 'rive gauche" organised her first exhibition. Then she had others in France. She moved, found a new studio and then a bigger one on "les grands boulevards", close to the well known cinema Le Rex. Her pictures where shown in Australia and in New York. At the same time she began a Belgian career. In 1966 l'Athénée museum, in Geneva, organized a great exhibition of her paintings. In 1972, that was the year when the Belgian State decided to buy one of her master pieces. She had a retrospective in Malines and, later, another one in Brussells Town Hall. She then settled in Belgium for a decade. Now she is back in Paris, near canal de l'Ourq, in the east part of the city. She paints every day and plays piano. Livia Vajda also enjoys to give free lessons of painting for the youngest or for the adults as art therapy. Recently two art galleries in Hungary organised an exhibition of her paintings in Budapest and Szentendre
