        Our Exagmination Round His Factification for Incamination of Work in Progress

      Paris: Shakespeare and Company,, 1929. With Letters of Protest by G. V. L. Slingsby and Vladimir Dixon. Octavo. Original white wrappers printed in black. Housed in a quarter calf solander box. A superb copy. First edition, first impression, large paper issue. This is copy 45 of 96 numbered copies printed on Verge d'Arches. 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 marvellous - was an unsolicited one by a Russian émigré who was to die in Paris in 1929, just as the book was published.

        The Pathe Exchange Board of Directors'; Minute Book 3, 1929-1931, years under Joseph P. Kennedy';s direction and control

      1929. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. 9" x 11.5" with a hard cover and 132 numbered pages and a number of documents attached. Volume 3 of Pathe's Exchange, Inc. containing minutes of the Board of Directors from April 1929 to 1931, including Annual Meeting and proxy correspondence. Joseph P. Kennedy was a member of the Board. In 1930 Pathe's Exchange, Inc. was sold to (or merged with) RKO (Radio-Keith-Orpheum). A copy of this agreement is included, with related correspondence. "Joseph P. Kennedy Presents His Hollywood Years" is the extraordinary missing chapter from Joe Kennedy's biography: his remarkable reign as a movie mogul when he ran three studios and a theater circuit simultaneously, was pivotal in the transition from silent films to sound, masterminded the mergers that created the blueprint for contemporary Hollywood and made the fortune that became the foundation of his empire." Cari Beauchamp book review In 1896, Frenchman Charles Pathe founded Pathe Freres (Bros) with his brother Emile. They developed an improved studio camera and the idea of a vertically integrated system of movie production and distribution, thus beginning the early industrialization of cinema. Early in the century the company devised a stencil system for mechanically colouring film. The Pathe brothers perfected the cinematograph play by utilizing huge studios, immense and elaborate sets, professional actors from the stage, and produced plays thought to be beyond the scope of the picture-producer. They developed a mass distribution system throughout the world. The company began mounting plays of historical significance, which led to producing scenes on location. Pathe moved its headquarters to the U.S. during WWI. After returning to France, the company eventually met with financial difficulties. Charles retired in 1929. However the Pathe name continued in various incarnations of film companies. Joseph P. Kennedy purchased a large share of Pathe's Exchange in 1929, where he was president and director through the company's merger with RKO in 1930. An archive marking the revolution of the motion picture industry. (Auction house description).
