        THE ONE WHO IS LEGION OR A.D.'S AFTER-LIFE

      London: Privately Subscribed by Eric Partridge Ltd [at the Scholartis Press], 1930.. Large octavo. Polished green buckram, lettered in gilt, t.e.g. Two plates. Cloth somewhat sunned and bubbled , otherwise very good, without dust jacket. First edition, one of 535 copies, from a total edition of 560 (525 for sale). With Barney's late presentation inscription: "To Bettina, my best reader & most charming friend ever her admirer Natalie / Paris 3 June | 63." The recipient, Elizabeth "Bettina" Bergery, was the American-born and Paris-resident fashion designer, and wife of French politician and Vichy ambassador, Gaston Bergery. The two plates reproduce paintings by Romaine Brooks that she executed specifically for this work. One of Barney's most unusual works, and one of the handful of her original publications in English, THE ONE WHO IS LEGION is a stylistically unconventional novel, imbued with several gothic elements, concerning a suicide reincarnated as a sexually ambiguous hermaphrodite. It has considerable importance as a reflection of Brooks' influence in Barney's life, as well as of Barney's efforts to come to terms with Renée Vivien's death.

        THE SEVENTH BOWL

      London: Eric Partridge, Ltd.,. 1930. original blue cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, t.e.g.. A fine copy without dust jacket as issued. This copy has an old. unprinted glassine wrapper which may be original to this issue of the. book. Among the major British post-World War One scientific romances.. Rare. (#147778). First edition. Limited to 500 copies of which this is number two of ten numbered copies, signed and dated 29 May 1930 by "Miles." Southwold's first novel, later reissued under his Neil Bell byline. "The elixir of life is invented and all the babies are killed. In 1990 the earthly paradise is ruled by an all-seeing bureaucracy." - Gerber, Utopian Fantasy (1973), p. 151. The novel's "extravagance and scope cannot quite compare with [Olaf Stapleton's] LAST AND FIRST MEN -- published the same year -- it is nevertheless a work of great imaginative ambition ... There are obvious parallels between this story and the darker aspects of the work of Fowler Wright and Stapledon. Bell was never to write anything else with the same imaginative scope -- or for that matter, with the same depth of cynicism -- as THE SEVENTH BOWL." - Stableford, Scientific Romance in Britain 1890-1950, pp. 219-21. "A startling example of postwar cynicism." - Anatomy of Wonder (1987) 2-7. "Problem novel in the manner of H. G. Wells ... Intelligently written and far superior to the thrillers written under the pseudonym Neil Bell." - Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 1489. Anatomy of Wonder (1981) 2-70; (2004) II-101.

        Drypoint Etching, Untitled

      ca 1930-35. A chilling image of a pistol-wielding African-American man fleeing the scene of a crime, leaving two white bodies lying in the street. It is unclear whether the scene is intended as a commentary on growing racial tensions in Harlem in the 1930s (possibly a direct reference to the Harlem Race Riot of 1934?), but the work is typical of Groth's social-realist work of the Depression era. Though best remembered as a wartime sketch-artist and book illustrator (he produced a number of titles for The Limited Editions Club, including the widely-praised LEC edition of Erich Maria Remarque's All Quiet on the Western Front ), Groth began his career as a printmaker and cartoonist very much in the social-realist mold, publishing some of his earliest work in such left-wing forums as The New Masses and PM. He was also the first Art Director at Esquire, which was founded in 1933. Groth's mastery as a printmaker is on display in these early works, which manage to convey a simultaneous sense of urgency and delicacy which would become the hallmark of his battlefield sketches made during WW2 and the Korean War. Groth's Depression-era work has remained scarce in the marketplace, with only a few examples of his social-realist prints at auction in the past twenty years. The current example is from Groth's personal archive, which we acquired in 2013. Original drypoint etching. Sheet size 27.5cm x 41cm (ca 10-3/4" x 16"); image area 15.5cm x 30cm. No edition stated (artist's proof?). Signed in pencil, lower right. Old crease and kraft paper adhesions to extremities (well away from image); Near Fine.

        Pleasures for Little People. [Text Englisch].

      ohne Drucker, Ohne Ort 1930 - (um 1930). Leporello mit acht kartonstarken Blättern. durch Leinenstreifen verbunden. (vorne und hinten leicht berieben und in den Kanten etwas bestoßen, sonst innen außergewöhnlich frisch und insgesamt sehr gut erhalten). Äußerst selten! Das Faltbilderbuch der böhmisch-jüdischen Künstlerin Anny Engelmann (Pseudonym "Suska", Olmütz 1897 - Maly Trostinec 1942) enthält 14 Illustrationen von Kindern mit Tieren (davon eine mit Storch doppelt, dafür fehlt Mädchen mit Dackel). Die Bilder des Vorder- und Hinterdeckels stammen von Frederick "Fred" Spurgin (1882-1968), einem namhaften Postkartenillustrator, eventuell stammen von ihm auch die Kinderreime unter den Bildern von Anny Engelmann. Der einzige Hinweis auf den Hersteller resp. Verleger ist ein "P. 45" auf dem Vorderdeckel. Über KVK konnten wir weltweit kein einziges Exemplar nachweisen. Denkbar wäre eine Verbindung mit dem - bisher wohl weitgehend unerforschten - jüdisch-deutschen Kinderbuch-Verlag G. Löwensohn in Fürth, für den Engelmann in den 1920er und 1930 Jahren tätig war. - Nicht bei Klotz; Schneider/Duschka: Bibliographie Anny Engelmann, p. 18. 700 Gramm. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The author's first novel, "one of the most remarkable imaginative works in the field of futuristic fiction: an account of human development during the next hundreds of millions of years." - Clarke, Tale of the Future (1978), p. 58. "On his own terms, Stapledon is unequaled, and he certainly has been one of the major influences on contemporary science fiction." - Survey of Science Fiction Literature III, pp. 1140-43. "LAST AND FIRST MEN and STAR MAKER soar far beyond the accepted limits of science fiction... Stapledon is the great classical example, the cold pitch of perfection as he turns scientific concepts into vast ontological epic prose poems, the ultimate SF writer." - Aldiss, Trillion Year Spree: The History of Science Fiction, p. 198. Stapledon's "influence, both direct and indirect, on the development of many concepts which now permeate genre SF is probably second only to that of H. G.

        TRADE-MARKS

      New York: Caxton Press, 1930. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good +. Small 4to. Full red cloth, with beveled boards and designer?'s relief logo medallion mounted to front. Ornate gilt decoration and lettering to spine. With 53 trademark illustrations. One of 750 copies, this #120, numbered and SIGNED by Hornung to colophon. Thomas Maitland Cleland-designed bookplate of noted Chicago collector and Newberry Library trustee Alfred E. Hamill to front paste-down. Additional own- ership inscription of Chicago graphic artist Phyllis K. Unosawa to second end-paper. Spine cloth faded. Light wear to boards and cloth, corners slightly bumped. Top edge mildly soiled. Very good or better. An impressive collection of business and corporate logos, and the first book from the prolific American illustrator and designer Clar- ence P. Hornung. Hornung was one of the most important and influ- ential designers of the 20th century; his HANDBOOK OF DESIGNS AND DEVICES, first published in 1932, remains an important resource and many iconic trademarks and logos of the last century were either de- signed by Hornung or were directly inspired by his work. His TREASURY OF AMERICAN DESIGN (Abrams, 1972) was a landmark reference that Hil- ton Kramer called "a work of extraordinary beauty — Mr. Hornung also designed it — which is a virtual encyclopedia of American folk art [...] indispensable." TRADE-MARKS itself is an elegant production, in keeping with the work it contains, with embossed French-fold leaves, each bearing a single color logo. More than half of the focus is on the bibliographic, including the logos of Encyclopedia Britannica, Scribner's, Farrar and Rinehart (two variants), Harper, Book League of America, Mazarin Press, Vanguard Press, Sunflower Press and Cax- ton Press. With a preface by Harry L. Gage. Uncommon in trade, and from the library of two noteworthy Chicago area book collectors, scarce indeed.

A remarkable collection of original photographic prints showing the progress of construction of more than two dozen projects in the greater San Francisco Bay Area in the 1920s. Among the notable buildings whose construction is documented herein are the famed Mark Hopkins Hotel on San Francisco's Nob Hill, the Temple Emanu-el (one of the two oldest Jewish congregations in San Francisco), various shipyard projects in the Port of Oakland, an I. Magnin Department Store, a notable Art Deco movie palace, factories, the E. F. Hutton headquarters, small Woolworth stores, Masonic and Scottish Rite temples, and much more. The collection gives a vast amount of visual information on construction in the Bay Area in the 1920s. The photographs also showcase the designs of a number of notable California architects. The photographs show the construction of the buildings over time through a series of images, usually spaced between a week or two weeks apart. As such, they are reminiscent of Eadweard Muybridge's series of pictures of the United States Mint in San Francisco under construction in the early 1870s, which were among the first to utilize photography to document a construction project. A few of the projects are represented by only a handful of images, but on average the span of time covers several months and shows the project from start to finish. The series on Congregation Emanu-el, for example, consists of twenty photographs showing the building of the Temple over eighteen months. Oakland's Fox Theater, which took a year to build, is shown in sixty photographs, many of them detailing the plaster work done on the Art Deco interior. The shipyard construction photographs are also quite detailed, giving a vivid understanding of the complex infrastructure required by the projects. Interestingly, no projects are noted as having been begun after the fall of 1929, likely a reflection of the effect of the great stock market crash of October 1929. These photographs were commissioned by the California contracting firm of MacDonald & Kahn, who are listed as the builders on each project. MacDonald & Kahn was a very active construction firm in California and the West in the early 20th century, building projects in northern and southern California, and participating in the construction consortium that built the Hoover Dam. They were prolific not only in commercial construction but also in public works. Along with the Hoover Dam, they worked on the Oakland Shipyards (included in this archive) and on the Fourth Street Viaduct project in Los Angeles. The images were taken by a variety of photographers in the Bay Area and Central Valley, and would have been used by the contractors to document the progress of each project over time. Most of the prints are backed by linen, many with the name of the photographic firm that took the images stamped on the verso. Most of the linen backings also contain a stub at the left edge or top of the print (depending on its orientation, landscape or portrait style), indicating that these prints were originally meant to be housed in binders of some sort. Information on the name of the project, the architect and builders, and the date of the photograph have been noted in a corner of the print itself. The photographs are often dated at one or two week intervals, showing the ebb and flow of construction over time. The earliest MacDonald & Kahn project represented here is the California Associated Raisin Company in Fresno, built in 1918. The latest are rather modest buildings done in the winter of 1929-30. The twenty-eight separate projects are as follows: 1) ATHENS ATHLETIC CLUB. Seventeen photographic prints. William Knowles was the architect on this project, built by MacDonald & Kahn. The location of the building was 12th and Clay Streets in Oakland. The photographer was Ford E. Samuel of Oakland, and the prints are dated from July 15, 1924 to June 15, 1925. The latest pictures show the building still under construction, with scaffolding on one side of the exterior, the first floor unfinished, and the building site surrounded by construction materials. 2) BOULEVARD THEATRE. Three photographic prints. This building, at San Bruno and Burrows in San Francisco, was designed by Reid Brothers. R.J. Waters and Co. of San Francisco took the photographs, which show the theatre in the early stages of construction, dated January 30 to February 13, 1927. The first photograph shows the lot as it was dug out, and the final two photographs show the steel structure of the building, the steel provided by Schrader Iron Works of San Francisco. The small MacDonald & Kahn site headquarters is shown in two of the prints. 3) BUTLER BROTHERS BUILDING. Thirteen photographic prints. Located in San Francisco, the Butler Brothers building was designed by Bliss & Fairweather. The images are dated from November 16, 1927 to May 18, 1928. The final two photographs show the six-story building from two different angles. 4) CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATED RAISIN COMPANY. Forty photographic prints. The prints are dated between March 15 and October 25, 1918 and were taken by the Laval photographic firm (later called Laval and Ninnis) of Fresno. One of the prints is by Gabriel Moulin of San Francisco, and shows the architect's rendering of the proposed plant, which was built in Fresno. The plan shows an ambitious multi-building complex, only one building of which was built. No architect is stated. 5) CALIFORNIA PACKING CORPORATION. Eleven photographic prints, measuring 7 x 17 inches on average. The prints are dated from October 11, 1924 to March 9, 1925. These large-scale, almost panoramic photographs show the construction of the California Packing Corporation's Plant Number 11 in Sacramento. No architect is stated, but the Chief Engineer was Philip Bush. The photographs were taken by the Hodson photographic firm. 6) CAPITAL THEATRE. Thirty-five photographic prints. The prints date from December 29, 1927 to January 28, 1929 and document in detail the construction of this large theater. The building was designed by Thomas W. Lamb and built by MacDonald & Kahn. The Waters Company of San Francisco documented the construction in a series of at least thirty-eight photographs, of which thirty- five are present here. 7) CONCRETE SHIPYARD, OAKLAND. Twenty-five photographic prints. Dated from June 27 to November 26, 1918, the photographs were taken by Mollers of Oakland. No architect or engineer is identified. Many of the photographs contain brief descriptive information in the print. The earliest photographs show the grading of the construction site and views of the shoreline. This was a massive construction project, and the photographs contain several interior views showing the huge shell of the building as well as the cafeteria, latrines, etc. 8) CONGREGATION EMANU-EL TEMPLE. Twenty photographic prints. Dated from August 19, 1924 to February 23, 1926, all but one of the photographs were taken by the Schoenfeld Studio of San Francisco. The temple was designed by architect Sylvian Schnaittacher, who was instrumental in designing many prominent buildings that went up in the years following the 1906 earthquake and fires. The temple is still in use in Presidio Heights, housing one of the two oldest Jewish congregations in California. 9) CONTINENTAL BAKING COMPANY. Nine photographic prints. The prints are dated from July 29, 1929 (showing much of the structure of the building already up) to an image of the completed building, dated October 29, 1929 (Black Tuesday, the date of the Wall Street crash). Bliss and Fairweather were the architects, and Waters Company took the photographs. 10) FINANCIAL CENTER BUILDING. Two photographic prints. The two prints are dated April 28, 1926 (showing the beginning of construction) and September 30, 1926 (the nearly completed building). The building, more than ten stories high, was advertised as being ready for occupancy on February 1, 1927. Fred Myers was the architect, and the photographs are by R.J. Waters & Co. 11) FOX THEATER. Sixty-four photographic prints. The photographs are dated from April 26, 1922 to April 12, 1923, and were taken by the Western Photo Company of Oakland. They show, in intricate detail, the year-long construction of this classic Art Deco theater in Oakland. The photographs show the interior and exterior work, including several images of the plaster being applied to the interior. This was the original Fox Theater in Oakland, located on Broadway and with more than 2500 seats. It was demolished in the 1960s. The architect is not identified. 12) ADDITION TO HALE BROTHERS. Ten photographic prints. The images are dated April 16, 1923 to October 7, 1926, and were taken by R.J. Waters & Co. George Taylor de Colmesnil was the architect. The final image is undated and shows the main building of this popular San Francisco department store. 13) MANN APARTMENTS. Eight photographic prints. Dated August 19 to December 23, 1922, the photographs are by R.J. Waters & Co. The architect is not identified. 14) HUTTON BUILDING. Nine photographic prints. These prints, taken by R.J. Waters & Co., show the construction of the San Francisco office of E.F. Hutton & Company, and are dated November 12, 1921 to April 1, 1922. Founded in San Francisco in 1904, E.F. Hutton was an important stock brokerage firm. Its original building was destroyed in 1906; this building is a stately, three-story Neoclassical structure. 15) I. MAGNIN & Co. BUILDING. Eleven photographic prints. The prints were taken by Waters Company, and show the construction of the I. Magnin store beside the Union Trust Company building at the foot of Grant Avenue, near Market and O'Farrell. The images are dated April 17 to July 5, 1929. Bliss and Fairweather were the architects. 16) KAHN'S DEPARTMENT STORE. Five photographic prints. Dated April 2 to June 23, 1923, the photographs show the beginning stages of the projected six-story addition to Oakland's largest department store. MacDonald & Kahn were the builders, and the photographs were taken by Western Photo and by C.L. Huntington. 17) KROEHLER MANUFACTURING COMPANY. Eleven photographic prints. The prints are dated September 3, 1926 to February 11, 1927. The building for the furniture manufacturer, designed by L.H. Nishkian, was located in the outskirts of San Francisco. R.J. Waters & Company took the photographs. 18) LOEW STATE THEATER. Seven photographic prints plus two related images. The images are dated September 27, 1920 to August 19, 1921. This theater is the only building in this grouping built in Los Angeles. A comment on the final image notes that the building was completed in nine months and seven days at a cost of $2.5 million. Reid Brothers were the architects. An additional image shows the Loew's Warfield Theater under construction, and another shows an architect's rendering of the Loew Union Square. 19) FINANCIAL CENTER BUILDING. Five photographic prints. The images are dated May 1, 1929 to June 6, 1930, and the photographer is unidentified. A comparatively small, single-story project, built by MacDonald & Kahn and identified only as the "Financial Center Building" in San Francisco. 20) MARK HOPKINS HOTEL. Eleven photographic prints. This series of photographs shows the construction of one of the most iconic buildings in San Francisco, the opulent Mark Hopkins Hotel on the top of Nob Hill. The building was designed by Charles Peter Weeks and William Peyton Day. The Schoenfeld Studio took the photographs, which are dated from March 16, 1926 (showing the steel beams of the structure already up) to an image of the completed building dated November 8, 1926. Signs placed around the construction site note that it was financed by Straus Bonds. 21) MASONIC TEMPLE. Twenty-one photographic prints. The photographs show the construction of this Masonic Temple in Stockton, California, and are dated from August 22, 1921 to May 1, 1922. Several of the images, taken by V. Covert Martin of Stockton, show the interior of the building, including meeting rooms and the auditorium. The architect was Carl Werner. 22) PACIFIC STATION. Thirty-two photographic prints. The photographs were taken by R.J. Waters & Co., and show construction on the building from October 14, 1924 to March 10, 1925, by which time it had been completed. Bliss & Faville were the architects. 23) PORT OF OAKLAND. Four photographic prints (one of them double-sheet). The photographs, taken by the Waters Company, show work done at the Port of Oakland by MacDonald & Kahn in the Spring of 1929. The double-sheet print shows a large two-story building in an advanced state of construction. 24) THOMAS DYEING & CLEANING. Five photographic prints. The photographs, by the Waters Company, show work done by MacDonald & Kahn on this four-story San Francisco building from January 30 to March 31, 1930. The architect was F.W. Dakin. 25) SCOTTISH RITE TEMPLE. Five photographic prints. The photographs date from October 17, 1926 to August 17, 1927, with a final photograph showing the completed building, dated on the verso January 9, 1928. R.J. Waters & Co. took the construction photographs, and Carl Werner was the architect. 26) WESTERN ELECTRIC. Thirteen photographic prints. The photographs show the construction of the Western Electric Company building in Emeryville, from March 26 to August 31, 1929. The architect is not identified.

An additional group of some eighty-five original photographs, 7 3/4 x 9 1/2 inches or smaller. A number of the photographs show completed structures built by MacDonald & Kahn, while others were likely part of a photographic reference file used by the firm in its work. An outstanding collection of original photographic prints, showing the course of construction of more than two dozen projects and buildings in Northern California in the 1920s, including the Mark Hopkins Hotel, the Oakland Shipyards, Art Deco movie houses, financial institutions, and much more.

        Chang of the Siamese Jungle [King Kong Interest]

      E. P. Dutton and Co. New York (1930) - First Edition. Erick Berry dustjacket art and illustrations. Octavo, original cloth and illustrated dustjacket. Forward by Merian C. Cooper, who produced and co-directed the black and white silent film titled 'Chang' in 1927. Cooper does not mention the film in his forward and the plot lines appear to differ somewhat, though both the Cooper film and Morse novel take place in the Siam jungle and include elephants as main protagonists. Likely a novelization of sorts of Cooper's (Famous Players-Lasky Corporation) production, one of only three films to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Unique and Artistic Picture. Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack's reckless enthusiasm and heedlessness of danger during the making of the film informed the character of Carl Denham in their subsequent work, King Kong (1933). Very scarce title. Cooper only published a few titles in his life time. Near Fine in nearly Very Good dustjacket, few light stains to front panel, shallow chips and wear at edges, dime sized chip at top front panel and top spine end.

        Autograph letter to B. Schott's Söhne Musikverlag signed in full.

      1 page. Quarto (275 x 220 mm). Dated Budapest, June 20, 1930. In blue ink on stationery with watermark "Szenabella Stationer Szénásy Budapest." In German (with translation). Bartók is furious about a volume of Hungarian folksongs published by Schott. He has asked the publisher for "corrections," but Schott refuses to take action: "I am sorry to glean from your letter that you are not inclined to respond to my request (concerning MöllerÂ’s edition, 'Ungarische Volkslieder'). Because of this I am forced to attempt to realize the corrections I would like by resorting to other means." Annotations by the recipient in blue and green pencil. Slightly worn; creased at folds; small burnhole and trace of rusty paper clip to left margin; small edge tears. . Most probably unpublished. Not in the most comprehensive collection of Bartók's letters: Bartók Béla: Levelei, ed. János Demény (Budapest: Zenem kiadó, 1976). The publication by Schott that offended Bartók was volume 12 of Das Lied der Völker, an anthology of folksongs edited by Heinrich Möller (1876-1958). The volume, issued in 1929, reprinted two of Bartók's folksong arrangements without permission. In addition, Möller attacked BartókÂ’s scholarly work on the subject. As Schott was not bowing to BartókÂ’s pressure for satisfaction, Bartók took revenge and reviewed MöllerÂ’s publication in the Zeitschrift für Musikwissenschaft, August-September 1931, pp. 580-582. The review sparked a polemical exchange with Möller that lasted well into the following year. See “The Bartók-Möller Polemical Interchange,” in Béla Bartók Studies in Ethnomusicology, ed. Benjamin Suchoff (Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 1996), pp. 142-157.

        LETTERING FOR STUDENTS AND CRAFTSMEN

      London: Seeley, Service & Co. Ltd, 1930. No. 324 OF 370 COPIES for sale (from a total edition of 380), SIGNED by the author n. Hardcover. 200 x 264 mm (10 3/8 x 7 7/8"). 336 pp. No. 324 OF 370 COPIES for sale (from a total edition of 380), SIGNED by the author. Publisher's original white buckram, flat spine with gilt titling, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed, first third of the leaves UNOPENED. With 383 figures, including tipped-in plates, and two plates with alphabets of Roman capitals by the author. Final two leaves of Appendix and first two of Index with two-inch closed tear at bottom (not affecting text), otherwise A VERY FINE COPY, the white cloth remarkably clean and bright, and the text immaculate. This is an essential reference and tutorial for anyone interested in lettering, written by English calligrapher and illuminator William Graily Hewitt (1864-1952). Beginning with a discussion of pens, Hewitt guides the reader through the fundamentals of forming letters in a variety of scripts, his careful instructions helpfully supplemented with many illustrations. He covers Carolingian, gothic, and Renaissance scripts, Roman capitals, and arrangements of letters, then concludes with an in-depth discussion of legibility, materials, and gilding. In the revival of calligraphy in England during the 20th century, Graily Hewitt is second only to his teacher Edward Johnston in importance. In 1901, he succeeded Johnston as instructor at the Central School of Arts and Crafts, where he taught courses in lettering for more than 30 years. One of the founders of the Society of Scribes and Illuminators, he is credited with reviving Medieval methods for gilding with gesso and gold leaf on vellum. Hewitt established a nexus between calligraphy and type design, holding to the belief that type should represent what the pen created. Among other accomplishments, he designed a number of initials for St. John Hornby's Ashendene Press from 1902-35.

        Secrets of Freemasonry].

      Maski doloy Brussels s 1930 - Octavo. 72 pp., incl. title. Publisher's printed wrappers; spine slightly chipped, some minor soiling. An anonymous translation into Russian of a German pamphlet published by Edgar Bissinger in the 1930s, which provides an "insight" into the secret masonic rituals and beliefs. In fact, the profusely illustrated text is highly anti-semitic. The tone is set already in the introduction that ends with an exhortation to salute Hitler. The Russian edition falls into the context of the anti-semitic attitudes that dominated the émigré community. They saw the original Bolshevik government, compiled of many Jewish revolutionaries, as a proof of the veracity of the forged Protocols of Zion. Rare. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Grey cloth folding box. 3 pp., pencil on paper, approx. 750 words, with numerous corrections, revisions, and interpolations. 4to. Art Young Remembers Chaplin: 'but I know that a good part of him is sad'. American cartoonist Art Young (1866-1943) recalls meetings with Charlie Chaplin in 1921, upon his return to New York "from that trip to England during which his fame had blazed over the wide world." Young, one of the founders (with Max Eastman) the radical magazine Masses (and its 1920s successor New Masses), recounts how "in a quiet room one afternoon [Chaplin] told me of his boyhood days, when he was an 'alley cat' in a poor quarter of London. Unknown, kicked around, and slept nights in the wagons of a fruit peddler." Chaplin told of the sudden renown which accompanied his trip to London, where a crowd gathered outside the barber shop while he had a hair cut. "A modest sensitive philosophical you man this Englishman with the platypus feet ... I suppos that there are millions of people who think of Charlie Chaplin as just 'a funny man'. But I know that a good part of him is sad." Young recalls another meeting at a party, where he, Max Eastman, and Charlie Chaplin and "a welll known dancers of those days" performed a charade, with Young as the farmer remonstrating "the wayward daughter". This brief memoir concludes, "That was a night of revelry and ridicule of the drama of old time sentimentality." Young published two autobiographies On My Way (1928) and Art Young: His Life and Times (1939). Good content, with discussion of Chaplin's enormous fame, with mention of magazine publishing and Max Eastman, too.
