        I AM A FUGITIVE FROM A GEORGIA CHAIN GANG! - ORIGINAL SIX-PART SERIAL IN TRUE DETECTIVE MYSTERIES

      Dunellen, NJ and New York: New Metropolitan Fiction, Inc. / McFadden, 1931. Dunellen, NJ and New York: New Metropolitan Fiction, Inc. / MacFadden, 1931. Six quarto issues bound into one volume (29.5cm); illustrated wrappers; 120; 136; 128; 120; 120; 112pp; illus. Minute loss to base of spines, light wear to extremities, with several short tears and creases to same; faint, shallow moisture staining to rear wrapper edges and margins of several issues, else complete and clean throughout; Very Good+ or better. The original six-part serialization (January-June, 1931) of what would become Robert E. Burns' novel I Am A Fugitive From A Georgia Chain Gang, published by the Vanguard Press in 1932. A slightly fictionalized but largely autobiographical account, written while in hiding, of the author's adventures with the Georgia penal system, beginning with his arrest for stealing $5.80 from an Atlanta grocer in 1922. By his own admission, the author sent his story to True Detective Mysteries through an indirect and secret channel while hiding out from the law. At a side-by-side comparison with the finished text of the novel, the serialized version shows textual variations in certain portions. The six issues notably include dozens of photographic illustrations throughout the text, prominently featuring Burns in civilian, military, and prison garb, photos of his family, facsimiles of numerous letters written on his behalf, and stark portrayals of prisoners on the chain gang. Burns's intent was to expose the brutality and corruption of the chain gang system, and he succeeded; the book created an instant furor upon publication and became a bestseller for Vanguard. It served as the basis for the Mervyn LeRoy film released later the same year, starring Paul Muni in the role of Burns. The film heralded a new genre - the prison drama - and won three Oscars including a Best Actor Award for Muni. While copies of the novel in dustjacket are notably scarce, the complete serial in its original state is nearly unobtainable. A primary source and rare, with nothing comparable available in the trade (2016) and OCLC showing 8 American institutions with any issues of this publication.

        Stray Shots

      1931 - CLARK, Roland Hanmer. Stray Shots. New York: Derrydale Press, 1931. Octavo, original black cloth gilt, beveled edges, uncut. $2500.Limited private-press first edition, one of only 535 copies, of Clark’s first book of hunting reminiscences, with 13 wonderful dry-point etchings of game fowl by him.“From his boyhood days, Roland Clark’s lifelong passion was game birds, especially waterfowl. His illustrations of birds in their natural environment are astonishingly lifelike, even in his very early sketches. He was an ardent hunter and his art depicts game birds as the hunter actually saw them. So it is not suprising that hunters are his most ardent admirers” (Clark). “It has been said that he was often torn between shooting or sketching a bird, and as a result in a moment of indecision sometimes would lose both the bird and the drawing” (Russell Fink). Another avid sportsman, Eugene Connett, after studying the typography of Daniel Berkeley Updike, founded the famed Derrydale Press, with the intent “to reprint the very scarce early American books on sport which had become so rare that some of them would never be seen outside of a few private collections… and to produce a group of books on contemporary American sport which, because of their beauty, would be preserved.” Stray Shots, Clark’s first collection of hunting essays, “has become one of the most valued sporting books of all time” (Clark). Owner signature of renowned animal breeder Pansy Ireland, mistress of Georgia’s famed hunting lodge Pebble Hill, touted by Harper’s Magazine as “the best winter resort on three continents.”A fine copy, with distinguished provenance.

        L'Exil dans l'Enfer. Le camp de la transportation à St. Laurent du Maroni (à l'époque du "Bagne").

      1931 ca 1931 - Manuscrit in-4 en feuilles (17 x 22 cm) de (4)-235 pp. sur papier quadrillé à l'encre noire, avec 23 vignettes contrecollées et plans légendés à la plume ou au lavis de gris, premier plat de couverture illustré en couleurs, boîte plein chagrin rouge. Manuscrit inédit sur le bagne de Guyane : c'est le deuxième titre révélé du surveillant Henri Berryer (1894- ?), après la découverte du manuscrit Sept mois au bagne (collection privée), « à ce jour le seul témoignage de personnel pénitentiaire rédigé dans l?Entre deux-guerres » (Marc Renneville). « Engagé en 1919 dans l?armée coloniale, Berryer a été affecté l?année suivante en Indochine au 2e régiment d?infanterie. Employé comme dessinateur au service géographique, il effectue plusieurs missions à Hanoï, Haiphong et au Cambodge. Ces affectations sont marquées par des hospitalisations pour dysenterie. En 1923, il sollicite un congé sans solde d?un an et se marie avec une métisse indochinoise. Libéré du service actif en août 1924, Berryer est un temps infirmier-major au service de la population locale et travaille ensuite comme civil dans divers emplois, notamment comme géomètre opérateur pour la prospection de gisements de charbons, dans la baie d?Ha-Long. Atteint de paludisme, Berryer souffre également d?une consommation d?opium, dont il est difficile de dire si elle est épisodique ou chronique. Alors qu?il envisage un retour en France pour se soigner, il est nommé surveillant militaire en Guyane. Après un séjour escale de moins d?un mois en France, Berryer débarque en Guyane le 22 juillet 1929 pour rejoindre son poste. Il n?y fera qu?un bref séjour. Sept mois exactement. « Sept mois au bagne » qu?il semble bien avoir vécu comme « sept mois de bagne ». Les relations de Berryer avec la hiérarchie pénitentiaire ne sont pas bonnes. Son surveillant principal le considère comme un élément « antimilitariste et très indiscipliné ». Surtout, Berryer est malade. Il présente des symptômes de « neurasthénie » - suivant la nosologie de l?époque ? qui le rendent incapable d?accomplir normalement son service. Ses antécédents de paludisme et de toxicomanie provoquent son admission, le 8 décembre 1929, à l?hôpital des îles du Salut (île Royale). Le 30 janvier 1930, il est transféré à l?hôpital de Saint-Laurent-du-Maroni. Fin février 1930, Berryer obtient un congé de convalescence de trois mois. Le 8 mars 1930, il quitte Saint-Laurent avec sa femme sur le courrier Biskra. Il embarque peu après sur le paquebot Macoris pour atteindre Le Havre, le 28 mars 1930. En juin, son congé de convalescence est prolongé de trois mois. A la fin de l?année 1930, Berryer est licencié de l?administration pénitentiaire pour inaptitude au service colonial. » (Marc Renneville) Il relata dès son retour son expérience de gardien dans un "rapport" extrêment critique (Sept mois au bagne, localisé et daté Nevers, 1931) qui décrit « très exactement ce qu?est le bagne sans prose superflue. C?est tout simplement la vie du surveillant et du condamné telle qu?elle est sous le climat débilitant de la Guyane française » précise-t-il dans son avant-propos. L'Exil dans l'Enfer développe son réquisitoire contre les conditions de vie au bagne à travers l'histoire tragique de « Bernard » un mécanicien ajusteur « condamné à l'issue d'une affaire obscure », son « transport » depuis l'île de Ré, son long séjour à l'infirmerie de l''île Royale, l'espoir de la révision de son procès et sa mort en captivité. Fort de son expérience, Berryer décide d'embarquer ses contemporains pour le bagne où la métropole envoyait et oubliait ses condamnés. Surveillant « qui reste fort critique envers les pratiques de ses collègues », sa compassion va au détenu, et il nous montre les aspects géographiques (les différents lieux et leur emploi), journaliers (Bernard affecté à la corvée chargée du ramassage des noix etc.) et psychologiques de la détention souvent tragique des bagnards. Après le rapport des sept mois au bagne, Berryer enfonce le clou avec une [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Autograph Letter Signed

      Two pages on octavo sheet stationary, "The Bell Inn, Malmesbury, Wilts." printed in type. "July 31, 1931. Dear Burdett [Osbert Burdett, author], It would have given me the greatest pleasure if you and dear Moray (for whom I have much affectionate regard) had lunched or dined with me- but Canon Gray [i.e. John Gray] and I are here for August. He never wearies of Malmesbury... He went today to Dorchester and Tuesday and I met him in Salisbury. I hope dear Brother is better. I also hope you will come again to Scotland and let me make your acquaintance. I have quite a large box filled with Courtenay's letters. I hope to see Mrs. Rivets and the children this month. One of the girls has been for 8 months under treatment for glandular trouble. I wish WCR were still with us. Did you read and like Saturday Night at the Greyhound? John Hampson ame and stayed a few days with me. Regretfully, Andre S. Raffalovich." The Courtenay referred to was John Edward Courtenay Bodley, a fellow undergraduate and friend of Wilde's at Balliol who later was to write maliciously on Wilde. A fascinating and thoroughly salutary letter.
