        PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM OF VERNACULAR IMAGES, RECORDING A WOMAN'S LIFE IN THE PANAMA CANAL ZONE, 1929-1931

      1929. Original photograph album. Full Leather. Very Good. This album contains more than 240 original photographs, mostly 4.25" x 2.5" and several at 5" x 7". The images are fixed with photo-corners to heavy black stock, and many have captions in white below the images. A leaf at the front, printed and accomplished by hand, identifies the photographer as Mrs. Pearl Davis Reynolds, although the photographs of her were taken by another. She entered the Canal Zone via the Pacific Ocean on 5 October 1929, apparently aboard a US Army Transport. The album is bound in string-tied leather over flexible boards with oil-painted tropical foliage on the cover, and an inset picture of Culebra Cut rendered on silk. The final two leaves are detached, otherwise in sound condition. 8" x 11" Pearl Davis Reynolds was born on 1 August 1913, died on 10 October 1998, and is buried at Fort Gibson National Cemetery in Oklahoma. Her Panama Canal Zone adventure seems to have been as the wife (or companion) of a US Marine Corps non-commissioned officer (named Miles) stationed there. Pearl's album includes two pages of autographs and comments made by Canal Zone friends. In the photographs, she appears as a tall, thin woman, usually dressed in jungle outfits. Seen in the photographs are Pearl, Miles, friends, family pets, Canal Zone sites and structures, forts, beaches, battleships, &c., &c. Here are some of the captions: Quarters #47-A; Miles; Pearl; Picnic; At Amador; Sherman Parade; In the Jungles; A-A gun, Fort San Lorenzo; Landing Field; Balloon Hanger; Fort Amador; Panama City; Ironad Dam; Fort DeLesseps; Fleet Maneuvers; USAT St. Mihiel; The Los Angeles (airplane); her four kids; Headquarters Hospital; 14" Disappearing Rifle; birdseye view of naval station; Chagres River; New Devil's Beach; Shimmy Beach; Gatum Lake; Panama Bay Battle Fleet; San Juan; Leaving Porto Rica; USAT Chateau Thierry; &c.

        Cup of Gold: A Life of Henry Morgan, Buccaneer, with Occasional Reference to History

      New York: Robert M. McBride & Company 1929 - First edition, first printing of Steinbeck's first book. A very good or better copy, with a lightly faded spine, minor rubbing to the extremities, some offsetting and a very minor abrasion on the front endpaper, with a former owner bookplate to the front pastedown. Overall, in very good condition. Cup of Gold is Steinbeck's first novel and only piece of historical fiction. The book is loosely based on the pirate Henry Morgan, whose two main goals are to conquer Panama City (the "cup of gold") and to win the heart of La Santa Roja, a woman rumored to be as beautiful as the sun. Although this was his first work and is somewhat unique in plot, Cup of Gold shows the author's early interest in themes he continued to use throughout his career as a writer: piracy and myth.

        Painted Veils

      New York: Horace Liveright, 1929. Presentation Copy. Leather bound. Fine internally; beautiful, tight binding but with light bumping to upper corners. No wear to gilt.. Mejeska. Stunning. Rich, red, 3/4 leather with 6 bands. Elaborate and fine gilt tooling and devices in each compartment. Possibly hand-painted magenta/hyacinth/gold geometric design on paper finishes the cover and provides matching end papers. TEG. 309 pp. Color frontis and 11 additional color plates by Majeska (as published) and also with one signed, original (watercolor over drawing?), tipped-in plate (between frontis and title page) which was created and then used for the illustration No. XII in this book. This volume is one of no more than 12 thus bound and composed presentation copies. James Huneker, a forgotten name today, is oft cited as the most perceptive American culture essayist in the early 20th Century. Huneker (1857-1921) was a music critic who also wrote with passion and insight about art, literature and theatre. This deeply-felt novel,(Painted Veils), published just before his death, is a fascinating (and modern) philosophical treatise on love, sex, marriage, the creative urge, religion, God and the painful truths of living. Without satire or sentimentality, Huneker succinctly examines worldly behaviour. "Character is plot," he writes, "but plot is not character." His hero, a young drama critic, falls in love with an aspiring soprano who will not let any emotion stand in her way. He's drawn to a Good Woman who likes to conjure up make believe 'dream-children' and expresses his lust with a perky trollope who reminds the gents to leave their money on the mantlepiece. Others in the Huneker salon of maxims, axioms and paradoxes are a deceitful music critic and a seminarian who flies too close to the sun.The hovering characters here are Goethe, Balzac, Huysmans, and Chopin, Liszt, Wagner -- all referenced. The author scorns conventional rules of novel writing: characters come and go; viewpoints are changed within two sentences. It's not a polished "novel," or maybe even a good one, but it is a gleaming cerebral hour-glass that reminds us, in Huneker's words: "Truth is stranger than morals" and "Hypocrisy rules the world." (review by Sketchbook on goodread.com); The illustrations are by Majeska, an exotic figure who was an artist, decorator, and book illustrator, as well as a costume designer for the Ziegfeld Follies and movie producer Cecil B. DeMille. Many of her illustrations also appeared in Vanity Fair magazine. Majeska illustrated a 1930 limited edition of Dorian Gray (Oscar Wilde), Karen Blixen's Fantastic Tales, and several other well-known books. Majeska always maintained the mystique of being of European origin but did actually have formal European training. Madame Yna Anastasia Perpetua Majeska (1891-1959, otherwise known as Henrietta Marie Stern, or Mrs. Ephraim Adir, was born in Philadelphia as Yna, baptized as Yna Anastasia Perpetua, had married names of both Dannenbaum and Adir, and reportedly picked up Majeska from a vision while praying in southern California.

        Our Exagmination Round His Factification For Incamination of Work in Progress

      London: Faber and Faber Limited,, [1929]. With letters of protest by G.V.L. Slingsby and Vladimir Dixon. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine in silver. With the dust jacket. An excellent copy in the rather tanned, price-clipped dust jacket. First Edition, First Printing, UK Issue. This early critique of Joyce's final work was published some 10 years prior to the publication of the finished novel. Part of the incentive to publish was apparently to raise funds for the perennially impecunious Joyce. A myth surrounding this work is that one or both of the two letters of protest were written by Joyce himself. However both authors existed - indeed Beach herself commissioned Slingsby. Dixon's effort - which is marvelous - was an unsolicited one by a Russian émigré who was to die in Paris in 1929, just as the book was published.

        Important Autograph Letter Signed, 2 pp on separate 4to sheets of lined paper stamped with name, address and date, [Glen Ellen] Sonoma Co., June 20, 1910

      To the noted bibliographer and book collector, author of "High Spots in American Literature" (1929), Merle Johnson. Jack London writes about his yet to be published work, "The Scarlet Plague." This work, a novella first published in "London Magazine" in 1912 and in book form in 1915, is a post-apocalyptic tale. London addresses his correspondent as "Mr. Johnson" and writes in response to Johnson's recent letter. "I've got a twenty-thousand word yarn, just finished... a pseudo-scientific story dealing with the things that happened in the twenty-first century when a new micro-organic enemy smote mankind and left only several survivors." He asks if Mr. Johnson would have a read. "Will you care to glance at it?" He announces the birth of his daughter, "Have just had a visit from the stork - a girl." Unfortunately, this child died 38 hours after she was born. Written in his large hand and fully signed, "Jack London." This letter is not in his collected letters edited by Hendricks and Shepard. Unpublished according to our research. A review of London's story from the perspective of the US Center's for Disease Control sees the work as the first foray in modern literature into catastrophic pandemics. The story set in America, takes place in 2073, sixty years after the Red Death nearly destroyed the world in 2013. The public fear of widespread death from uncontrollable disease almost seems prescient, particularly in light of the influenza pandemic of 1918-19, as do the class disparities presented in his dystopian future.

        BLACKMAIL

      New York: World Wide Publishing Co., [1929]. First American Edition. First Printing. Octavo; maroon cloth over flexible boards, with titles and designed stamped in gilt on spine and front panel; dustjacket; 190pp. Spine gilt slightly dulled, with a few tiny spots to upper text edge, else very Near Fine. Dustjacket has a few very tiny chips at spine ends (not affecting lettering) and corner tips, else a bright, Near Fine example of the scarce dustjacket, with superb wraparound artwork. The novelized version of the suspense/mystery play by Charles Bennett, which was first staged in London in February 1928. It closed after just 42 performances, and would likely have remained little more than a brief footnote to the career of Tallulah Bankhead, had Alfred Hitchcock not adapted it into what was touted as the first "all-talking" British film. The film was a hit, and put Hitchcock firmly on the path to becoming the "Master of Suspense." This book, issued in the U.S. as No.9 in the World Wide Edition series, was actually printed in Great Britain but bound by a company in Long Island. A superb copy of an early, uncommon Hitchcock film source.
