        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).

An authoritative account of the Arab horse by the founder of the Maynesboro Stud, established with the purchase of Abu Zeyd from the Blunts' Crabbet Stud in 1912; and long-time president of the Arabian Horse Club of America. Typically attractive Derrydale production; "Eugene Virginius Connett, 3rd, the founder and principal owner of Derrydale, was a publishing genius. After graduating from Princeton in 1912, he briefly joined the family beaver hat-making business before striking out on his own as a fledgling book publisher and printer in Manhattan in 1927. Connett sought out the most respected outdoor writers of his day and convinced them to become Derrydale authors. He combined their words with the output of equally well regarded artists and illustrators whose drawings, paintings, and etchings were beautifully reproduced on the fine Italian paper that Connett favoured. Today these books and prints are the most valuable and most collectible sporting books and prints ever published in North America." (Jed Lyons, president of the press in his preface to James Cummins Catalogue 113, The Derrydale Press).

        THE VICAR OF WAKEFIELD

      David McKay Company [1929], Philadelphia - First edition thus. Copy #60/200 numbered copies of the American issue signed by Arthur Rackham. [There were an additional 575 numbered copies of the English issue, published by George G. Harrap, and also signed by Arthur Rackham]. There are 12 tipped-in color illustrations, plus additional black and white illustrations, plus pictorial endpapers [all by Arthur Rackham]. White vellum binding, with gold gilt lettering and rules, top edge gilt, with the other edges untrimmed. Generally a Near Fine copy, with tight uncracked hinges. This copy also has an oversized plain paper Dust Wrapper [with the top and bottom edges folded under, but even so the Dust Wrapper is still taller than the book] that is significantly torn and somewhat chipped. Frankly, I do not know whether this Dust Wrapper was original to the book, or added at some later date [although I suspect that the latter is more likely].

      Portland ME: Privately Printed. (n.d. - 1929). First. First edition of this broadside protesting the banning of his 1929 first novel The Bastard by the county attorney in Portland, Maine. Very good with a single fold. A passionate plea: after setting out the facts in the case, Caldwell comments that it all "...gives me an involuntary urge to vomit profusely." He continues by defending his unfortunate characters as if they themselves were real people under attack by the judicial system. .

      San Francisco:: John Howell,. 1929.. Royal 8vo. 10-1/2" x 7-1/8". 1st edition thus (Cowan, p. 160; Howes D-136; Kurutz 170b; Rocq 9091; Zamorano 80, #27). #119 of the Author's Section of the Argonaut Edition.

This extra-illustrated copy of the special Argonaut edition has an additional 26 inserted items, including 2 mss pages by the author concerning a voyage he made from San Diego to San Francisco; the Mayor's proclamation of April 18, 1906 [... KILL any and all persons engaged in looting ..."]; original San Diego Alcalde Deed from Miguel de Pedrorena (one of the Members of the 1849 Constitutional Convention); fragment of the original log of the American schooner Julia Ann which landed in San Francisco in 1841; two pages of songs printed in San Francisco in the 'Sixties; a leaf from The Pioneer Magazine of January 1855; leaf from the March 4, 1849 New York newspaper, Brother Jonathan [30-1/2" x 20", unfolded, with 15 cuts], with extensive article, "The California Gold Mines"; and other sundry items of a similar historical nature. As the cataloguer of this work, divers copies of which I've had over the years, the most interesting aspect of this particular copy, and never before encountered in the others, is the tipped-in Mar 1849 Brother Jonathan newspaper, which provides a graphic representation on how the California Gold Rush was received, and perceived, in the East, with a plethora of information, and mis-information, being provided to the news-hungry public; all-of-which no doubt further fueled the fire imparted by Gold Fever. Finally, we cannot improve on Howes' assessment, to wit: "This the most valuable of all Californian reminiscences." . Profusely illustrated with maps & plates.
