FITZGERALD, F. Scott.
Rennes: 20 May, 1929. Carte postale (140 x 90 mm), monochrome photographic illustration on recto, franked and stamped with two French blue 50-centime stamps celebrating the 500th anniversary of the liberation of Orleans. Inscribed and signed by Fitzgerald. Very good condition. Fitzgerald writes: "Dear Mr Newman: thanks for your kind letter. Thinking you might like to know what I looked like I am sending you some pictures (on the other side) that I had taken. Sincerely & gratefully F. Scott Fitzgerald." The front of the postcard, published by the Ligue national contre l'alcoolisme, shows two contrasting photographs of a stomach, one healthy, the other of an alcoholic. Fitzgerald has captioned them by hand in ink, noting the healthy stomach as "At 22", and the stomach of an alcoholic as "at 32" (Fitzgerald's age at the time). He adds a postscript: "The resemblance is said to be excellent". The card dates from the month when the Fitzgeralds had moved abroad again, to Paris, where Zelda had her heart set on learning ballet. From his street address, we identify the recipient as Robert Newman (1912-2009), later chief librarian at the Berkshire Athenaeum in Pittsfield, Mass. At the time of this postcard Newman was still in his final year at Pittsfield High School, so the morbid humour of Fitzgerald's reply may have come as some surprise.

COWARD
saying that he quite sees "your point of view about BITTER SWEET. I had a long talk about the same thing with Bob Rubin in New York. The reason I am so keen to hang on to my veto is that BITTER SWEET, having been massacred once by the films, should not I feel be massacred again. Unfortunately I was away in the East the last time it was done and I could not prevent them mis-casting and ruining my story. Sometime during my rehearsal period ... we might have a snappy little lunch and discuss the whole business ...", 1 side 4to., 1 Burton Mews headed paper, 10th January some damage to the top edge not affecting the text Bitter Sweet is an operetta in three acts, with book, music and lyrics by Noël Coward. The story, set in 19th century and early 20th century England and Austria-Hungary, centres on a young woman's elopement with her music teacher. The show had a long run in the West End from 1929 to 1931, and a more modest one on Broadway in 1929–1930 and was twice adapted for the cinema.

Hélas ! J'ai un contrat avec Gallimard à qui j'en avais donné le titre il y a plus d'un an déjà. Mais il y aura peut-être moyen de réparer cet oubli et de vous donner une autre biographie si les vies canadiennes ne vous effraient pas [Constantin-Weyer vécut durant 10 ans dans le grand-ouest canadien, qui lui servit de décor à 13 de ses romans]. A la fin de l'année prochaine, nous pourrions – si vous le voulez – ressusciter La Vérendrye et dans la Revue de Paris, et dans votre collection. C'est une belle vie que celle de cet officier échappé à la mort à Malplaquet et qui découvrit l'ouest canadien des grands lacs aux montagnes rocheuses. Encore un héro oublié ! ». Pourtant, il semble qu'un accord fut trouvé pour Yusuf. « Je vous enverrai encore quatre ou cinq chapitres d'Yusuf d'ici deux ou trois jours, et la fin avant le 25. Je suis en train de faire du « contrôle ». Les papiers d'Yusuf sont un peu épars dans la famille. C'est aussi que je viens de découvrir chez un cousin que je ne connaissais que de nom un portrait d'Yusuf dont je ne connaissais pas l'existence. Néanmoins, j'ai rassemblé tout l'essentiel de cette vie étonnante. Yusuf est véritablement le grand symbole du soldat d'Afrique. Prise d'Alger. Prise de Bône.

To his third wife, Natalja, on fighting against the AKhRR (Assotsiatsia Khudozhnikov Revolutsionnoi Rossii - Association of Artists of Revolutionary Russia), appointments with [Kirill Ivanovich] Shutko (with whom he was talking about Dziga Vertov), Archangelski, M. P. Kristi, and Aleksei Gan, who wanted to publish two essays of him. "Hier hat wieder eine Kampagne derAChR [Assoziation der Künstler der Revolution] gegen die neuen Strömungen begonnen, aber das Unglück [für sie] ist, dass jetzt meine Linie die Oberhand gewinnt und auf diese Weise ist das ganze für sie vergebens. Ich war in der Tretjakowka [=Tretjakow-Galerie], habe Kristi gesehen und am Freitag werde ich wieder in der Tretjakowka über die neue Abteilung sprechen und vielleicht über meine Arbeiten. [...] I think I have already mentioned everything. I will get my renumeration on Monday and go to buy the tickets then; I expect to be in Leningrad on Wednesday [...]" (transl. from the Russian original). - In her postscript, Malevich's daughter Una (who was at the age of nine at that time) reports how happy she was that her father had come to celebrate Christmas with her. - K. I. Shutko (1884-1941) was editor-in-chief of the magazine "Soviet Cinema". - Malewitsch über sich. Zeitgenossen über Malewitsch. Briefe. Dokumente. Erinnerungen. Kritik. Bd. 1, Moskau 2004, Nr. 8.

In Russian, to his third wife, Natalya, about some of his paintings that were sold, his return to Moscow, where everyone is happy to see him, and a presentation he attended there: "[...] Yesterday I went to the Academy to hear a presentation by Shutko on Dziga Vertov. It was quite remarkable, and I also saw three stagings [apparently films] by Vertov. Eisenstein sulked like a little girl. There was another presentation held by a German from Dessau, but I left before that. The people from ASNOVA [i. e. the Association of New Architects] want me to go to Moscow. Klyun will leave on Wednesday [...]" (transl.). - Kirill Ivanovich Shutko (1884-1941) was editor-in-chief of the magazine "Soviet Cinema". - Somewhat wrinkled. - Malewitsch über sich.

I was promised to sell a drawing soon [...] I called upon the Main Administration for Literary and Arts Affairs, but, as usual, they promised to make arrangements for a separate meeting and to talk to Shutko. Chwojnik sent me a note regarding my business trip abroad. It is all about not being willing to give one single Dollar in foreign currency [...] Chwojnik, who is head of the artistic department, is publishing characterstics of Russian artists and asks me to act as a model. In general, they all behave well to me. My beloved Natalja, don't let yourself get bored, don't get upset, don't lose weight. During this journey I have to do everything to lay in provisions for the winter [...]" (transl.). - Malewitsch über sich. Zeitgenossen über Malewitsch. Briefe. Dokumente. Erinnerungen. Kritik.

New York: 1929. All three volumes were printed and bound by The Plimpton Press in a beautiful tan, blue and brick paper with tan cloth spines and a leather text block on the spine. There is some rubbing on the corners and the leather is oxidized with some chipping. Volume I is the bibliography and this copy is inscribed by the editor Emily Ellsworth to her sister on the ffep. This is #67 of 200. All of the interiors are spotless. Volume II has an actual piece of Parson Weems writing tipped-in up front. Three hundred copies of II and III were printed and this set is #45 and signed. Mason Locke Weems (October 11, 1759 - May 23, 1825), usually referred to as Parson Weems, was an American book agent and author who wrote the first biography of George Washington immediately after his death. He was the source of some of the apocryphal stories about Washington. The tale of the cherry tree ("I cannot tell a lie, I did it with my little hatchet") is included in the fifth edition of The Life of Washington (1809 imprint, originally published 1800), a bestseller that depicted Washington's virtues and was intended to provide a morally instructive tale for the youth of the young nation.
