        Correspondance entre Harry Baur et son avocat, Maître Lévy-Oulmann

      1930 - Ensemble d'une quarantaine de feuillets rédigés par Harry Baur, dans les années trente, sur papier en-tête d'hôtels, de brasseries, ou papier à en-tête aux initiales du comédien, qui habitait au 6 rue Frédéric Bastiat, formats divers. La plupart de cette correspondance comporte une signature autographe. Certaines lettres sont tapuscrites, beaucoup manuscrites. Il semble qu'elles soient toutes adressées à son avocat, Maître Levy-Oulmann, souvent dénommé « mon cher vieux ». La majorité traite de problèmes d'argent, de procès en cours, de doutes sur le chauffeur personnel dont le train de vie semblait à Baur au-dessus de ses moyens. Ce chauffeur l'assignera au tribunal après plusieurs années de service. Quelques lettres sont relatives au cinéma : Harry Baur se plaint que son nom soit plus petit que celui de Simone Simon, plainte à l'Excelsior pour la publication d'un placard publicitaire ne respectant pas les engagements contractuels du comédien, conflit avec des producteurs (Gallic Films, Gaumont). Une lettre révèle la sensibilité du comédien, dans laquelle il cherche un moyen d'aider un homme pauvre et invalide à ne pas se laisser voler par son patron. Ce riche ensemble, éparpillé sur la décennie 1930, dénote un esprit procédurier et soupçonneux, et il révèle la forte personnalité de Harry Baur, se posant comme un homme sûr de lui et de ses droits, ne laissant rien passer (« j'attaque qui me touche » écrit-il). L'écriture même témoigne de ce caractère trempé. (TV) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

The album has sections from each year of high school with photos and ephemera detailing the grade. It begins with a list of Jessup's classmates followed by several small photo strip portraits of her girlfriends. She continues by including programs for events, ticket stubs, and membership cards for her time at Whittier. Also included are assignments such as spelling tests and essays tipped into the pages with grades, all of which show Jessup as a good student. One page shows commercial photos from Gay's Lion Farm where Jessup was taken by her uncle and grandmother as a reward for getting through admission day. She writes that it was "very interesting and we enjoyed it very much." One sections shows the school's dress up days with girls dressed up as musicians, one of which is complete with black face.

Interspersed throughout the album are photos of her classmates, some candids include building a human pyramid and general high school goofing off. There are also small portraits of the seniors in her class pasted next to a card with their names. An interesting and complete look at a California high school girl's education in the late 1920s.

        William Stewart Halsted, Surgeon.

      Johns Hopkins Press, 1930., Baltimore: - 8vo. xvii, [1], 241, [1] pp. Frontis. portrait, 17 illus., fold-out family-tree diagram. Blue blind- and gilt-stamped cloth. Inscription: "To Jack Gibbon in appreciation of our interesting experiences in 'experimental surgery' 1930-1931. E.D.C." Very good. First edition. INSCRIBED BY EDWARD DELOS CHURCHILL TO JOHN HEYSHAM GIBBON, INVENTOR OF THE HEART-LUNG MACHINE. The unique inscription in this copy of MacCallum's biography of Halsted, may well refer to a watershed moment in cardiac surgery, that led to the development of technology and techniques that saved, over the past sixty years, millions, of lives. Gibbon was a research fellow working under Edward Delos Churchill in 1930-1931, and together they performed numerous experimental surgeries aimed at increasing survival rates for open heart surgery patients (Hurst, Conti, and Fye, Profiles in Cardiology, 2003). A review of Churchill's archival papers, at the Harvard University Library, show six correspondences with Gibbon, and in two of them Churchill refers to Gibbon as "Jack". PROVENANCE: Edward Delos Churchill (1895-1972) was a noted thoracic surgeon. John Heysham Gibbon, Jr. (1903-1973) is best known for inventing the heart-lung machine and pioneering many techniques in open heart surgery. Gibbon's impetus for devising the heart-lung machine stemmed from an emergency surgery he performed with Churchill at Massachusetts General Hospital in 1930. "In 1930 he found himself assisting Dr. Edward Churchill in an emergency pulmonary embolectomy. At that time the procedure was one of desperation as no patient in the U.S. had survived the removal of blood clots in open-heart surgery. As Dr. Gibbon recorded the patient's waning vital signs prior to the procedure he thought, 'If only we could remove the blood from her body by bypassing her lungs, and oxygenate it, then return it to her heart, we could almost certainly save her life.' Despite a successful removal of large clots from the patient's pulmonary artery, she never regained consciousness. This 'critical event' initiated Gibbon's determination to produce a heart-lung machine" (Thomas Jefferson University Digital Commons) â€" Jefferson Univ. (web source).

        My Early Life, a bibliographically unidentified binding variant

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1930. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is the first edition, first printing, of Churchill's extremely popular autobiography. This copy offers an additional enticement to collectors, being a variant binding not noted by bibliographers and among just a small handful of copies we have encountered bound thus. Various states of the first edition, first printing are known. First states were bound in both a coarse and a smooth plum colored cloth, have the title stamped on the front cover in either three or five lines, and contain a list of 11 Churchill titles in the boxed list of "Works by the same Author" on the half-title verso. Second state copies are distinguished by the addition of "THE WORLD CRISIS: 1911-1914" to the boxed list of works on the half-title verso, making 12 titles. It was presumed that all second state copies featured bindings with a five-line title on the front cover. In his excellent bibliography of Churchill's works, Ronald Cohen states: "... most, perhaps even all, copies of the second state will be found in binding cases in which the front cover is stamped in 5, rather than 3, lines..." This unrecorded variant is a first printing, second state copy in the coarse cloth binding with three lines on the front cover. Condition is very good overall. The binding remains tight with vividly bright boards, and little of the customary wear. The lower corners are bumped and the spine moderately sunned, but the spine nonetheless remains nicely rounded with decent color and bright gilt. The contents are respectably bright. Spotting is light for the edition, primarily confined to the prelims and page edges. We find no previous ownership marks. My Early Life covers the years from Churchill's birth in 1874 to his first few years in Parliament. One can hardly ask for more adventurous content. These were momentous and formative years for Churchill, including his time as a war correspondent and cavalry officer in theatres as varied as Cuba, northwest India, and sub-Saharan and southern Africa. This time contained a wide range of experiences in Churchill's life. Not only was he developing as an author, publishing his first books, and making his first lecture tour of North America, but this was also the time of his capture and daring escape during the Boer War, which made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill would take his seat in Parliament only weeks after the end of Queen Victoria's reign. My Early Life remains one of the most popular and widely read of all Churchill's books. And for good reason, as the work certainly ranks among the most charming and accessible of his many books. An original 1930 review likened it to a "beaker of Champagne." That effervescent charm endures; a more recent writer called it "a racy, humorous, self-deprecating classic of autobiography." To be sure, Churchill takes some liberties with facts and perhaps unduly lightens or over-simplifies certain events, but this is eminently forgivable and in keeping with the wit, pace, and engaging style that characterizes the book. My Early Life sold very well at the time and has seen a great many editions since, many of them collectible in their own right, but of course a premium attaches to first editions. The challenge for collectors is that the plum colored binding of this edition proved especially susceptible to fading, soiling, and wear; nearly all copies are considerably spine faded. Moreover, the contents are susceptible to heavy spotting and the binding is often cocked. This helps explain why so many first editions of this book have been torn apart and rebound. This original binding is both an interesting variant and in condition superior to many copies we encounter.

When the Dufault family moved to Montreal, he attended a Catholic school and his father ran a hotel, in which the boy heard stories of trappers that he later used to fabricate parts of his Lone Cowboy: My Life Story.Lone Cowboy, his partly faked autobiography, hoodwinked the vast American buying public, and even his wife, and was a 1930 selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club. (Its dishonesty was not exposed until 1967.) Although he wrote eighteen more books, James slowly lost his self-assurance, sense of well-being, and artistic inspiration. He constantly feared being found out as a prevaricating autobiographer." (American National Biography). Howes. Streeter. HBS 67870. $5,000 [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Palestine: Report on Immigration, Land Settlement and Development. By Sir John Hope Simpson, C.I.E. 1930. Presented by the Secretary of State for the Colonies to Parliament by Command of His Majesty. October, 1930.

      Printed and Published by His Majesty's Stationery Office, London, England 1930 - 245 x 155 mm. 185 pages plus a foldout graph attached to rear wrapper. Tear and chip to wrappers. The Report, known as the Hope Simpson Report, following the Hope Simpson Enquiry, was a product of the British commission that Simpson led. It was formed in August 1929, followed the 1929 rioting and pogroms by the Arabs and its conclusion was to be, and was, to limit Jewish Immigration, Land Settlement and Development issues in the British colony of Palestine, known as British Mandatory Palestine, as recommended by the Shaw Commission after the pogroms. The report, dated October 1, 1930, was published October 21, 1930 and it recommended limiting Jewish immigration based on Palestine's alleged economic absorptive capacity. The Passfield White Paper was also dated October 1, 1930, and recommended similar limiting of Jewish immigration. Then, as now, the Arabs were more numerous, had oil, and were not Jews.

        Handbuch der geographischen Wissenschaft. Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen und Karten. 13 Bände.

      Akademische Verlagsgesellschaft Athenaion 1930-1940, Potsdam - Zusammen 6643 Seiten. Großformatige Orig.-Halblederbände (ca. 29 x 23,5 cm) mit je 2 farbigen, goldgeprägten Leder-Rückenschildchen, der letzte Band "Deutsches Reich II" von 1940 wurde kriegsbedingt vom Verlag nur noch als Orig.-Leinenband in sonst gleicher Gestaltung ausgeliefert. Das Werk zieht die Summe des damaligen geographischen Wissens und ist überaus reich mit Fotos, Landkarten, montierten Farbtafeln und gefalteten Kartenbeilagen illustriert. Es erschien in einzelnen Lieferungen, denen der Verlag nach Abschluß der Bände Einbanddecken in blauem Leinen bzw. mit blauem Maroquin-Lederrücken und -ecken folgen ließ (weshalb häufiger un- oder nur teilgebundene Exemplare vorkommen). Aufgrund des langen Erscheinungszeitraums und den emigrationsbedingten Niedergangs des Bürgertums sind vollständig gebundene Exemplare, die auch den erst nach Kriegsbeginn 1940 erschienenen letzten Band umfassen, recht selten. Im einzelnen handelt es sich um folgende Bände: Allgemeine Geographie, Teil I: Physikalische Geographie (1933), Teil 2: Das Leben auf der Erde (1933); Afrika (1930); Australien und Ozeanien, Antarktis (1930); Süd-Amerika (1930); Südost- und Südeuropa (1931), Nord- und Mittelamerika, die Arktis (1933); Mitteleuropa (außer Deutsches Reich), Osteuropa (1935); Vorder- und Südasien (1937); Nordasien, Zentral- und Ostasien (1937); West- und Nordeuropa (1938); Das deutsche Reich I und II (1938-1940). Dank des schweren Kunstdruckpapiers sind die Seiten nicht vergilbt. Wegen des hohen Gewichts der Ausgabe kann eine Lieferung ins Ausland nur gegen erhöhte Versandkosten erfolgen (bitte nachfragen!). 2 Bände mit Unterstreichungen und Randnotizen in Bleistift auf ca. 70 Seiten. Unser Exemplar wie üblich mit schönen roten, aber fast durchgängig verblaßten grünblauen Rückenschildchen sowie einem gleichmäßig verblaßten Lederrücken (Australien), insgesamt handelt es sich jedoch um ein gut erhaltenes, ordentliches und vollständiges Exemplar mit nur leichten Gebrauchsspuren.

        Mon oncle Benjamin. Avec les variantes, une clef des Personnages du roman par Alfred Massé. 12 fac-similés et 184 aquarelles originales par Pierre Paschal.

      Dorbon Aîné, Paris, s.d. (1930) - Dorbon Aîné, Paris, s.d. (1930) 2 volumes in-4 (27,5 x 21,5 cm) de LI-206 et 207 à 442-(1) pages (pagination continue). Reliure plein maroquin châtaigne, dos à nerfs, tête dorée, non rogné, encadrement intérieur de maroquin souligné de trois filets dorés concentriques (reliures signées P. MANNE). Exemplaire à l'état proche du neuf. Quelques légères décharges sur quelques feuillets en regard des aquarelles. Tous les papiers de soie protecteurs sont présents, reliés dans les volumes. Tirage à 520 exemplaires. Celui-ci, 1 des 450 sur papier vélin à la forme de Vincent Montgolfier filigrané au bouquineur (papier spécialement fabriqué pour l'éditeur Dorbon). Les aquarelles au pochoir sont dues à Jacomet. Le roman est constitué par le récit d'un narrateur rapportant quelques épisodes de la vie du frère de sa grand-mère, Benjamin Rathery, qui est donc en réalité son grand-oncle. Le lieu du récit est Clamecy, l'époque est la fin du règne de Louis XV ou le règne de Louis XVI, au moins dix ans après la bataille de Fontenoy. Le narrateur est le fils de Gaspard Machecourt, fils aîné de la sœur de Benjamin et d'un huissier de justice de Clamecy. Âgé de 28 ans, Benjamin Rathery est un médecin peu convaincu, ne voulant pas payer ses dettes, plutôt amateur de bonnes bouteilles, assez cultivé, portant l'épée, célibataire convaincu. Sa sœur, chez qui il vit, cherche à le convaincre de se marier, ce qu'il accepte à la suite d'un incident de beuverie : il a blessé son beau-frère au cours d'une parodie de duel. Le choix se porte sur la fille d'un autre médecin des environs, Minxit. Claude Tillier, né le 11 avril 1801 à Clamecy (Nièvre) et mort le 12 octobre 1844, fut un pamphlétaire et romancier français. Fils d'un serrurier aux maigres ressources, il réussit à suivre des études au lycée de Bourges grâce à une bourse accordée par la ville de Clamecy. Ses classes terminées, la modicité de sa fortune l'oblige à embrasser la profession de maître d'études à Soissons, puis à Paris. Il raconte dans ses mémoires comment « son bouquet de rhétorique au côté, comme un domestique à la Saint-Jean, il alla offrir ses services aux revendeurs de grec et de latin de la capitale ». Il finit par être renvoyé, et, en 1821, il tombe au sort et effectue un service militaire de six ans. À son retour, il est nommé instituteur puis directeur d'école. Parallèlement, il œuvre comme journaliste à L’Indépendant à Clamecy, puis à L’Association, un journal démocratique de Nevers, pour lesquels il écrit aussi des feuilletons. Ses prises de position à l'encontre des notables locaux lui coûtent son poste de directeur à Clamecy. Il meurt d'une maladie de poitrine et repose à Nevers Sobres et élégantes reliures de Paul Manne sur un classique de la littérature nivernaise. Paul Manne (ancien élève de l'École Estienne établi à Paris rue Princesse en 1933, puis rue Mabillon en 1934, décédé en 1981 - Fléty, Dict. des relieurs p. 119) Somptueux exemplaire ayant eu les honneurs de reliures en plein maroquin de qualité.
