        THE EUROPEAN CARAVAN. An Anthology of the New Spirit in European Literature. Compiled and Edited by Samuel Putnam, Maida Castelhun Darnton, George Reavey, and J. Bronowski. Part I: France, Spain, England, and Ireland.

      Brewer, Warren & Putnam. New York. 1931 - FIRST EDITION. 8vo. Original black cloth, titles to spine in green, top edge dyed green. With the dust jacket. Light partial tanning and a few spots to endpapers, contents faintly toned. Cloth bright and fresh, an excellent copy in the jacket with tanned spine panel and a closed tear to the upper panel. First edition, first printing. This was the sole volume published of a far more extensive project designed to bring a cross section of cutting edge world literature to the American public. The venture was never fully realised and perhaps its lasting legacy will prove to have been as Beckett's first appearance in a US publication. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The quarter from which the trouble is coming is indicated, and the amazing manner in which the machinery for monetary control of the world was established is traced out." - from Introduction.

        JEAN HARLOW / IRON MAN (1931)

      Universal 1931 - Vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) single weight glossy sepia-tinted silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Lew Ayres, Robert Armstrong, Jean Harlow, John Miljan, dir: Tod Browning; Universal. The film, directed by the legendary Tod Browning, was about a young lightweight boxer (Ayres) whose gold digging wife leaves him for Hollywood once he fails. When he becomes successful she is back and, along with her lover, makes plans to take his money. The fact that Jean Harlow played a tramp was telegraphed loud and clear throughout the W. R. Burnett story. Very rarely is this film shown. This full length image (still no. 12) of the iconic blonde bombshell exudes her sexiness and elegance as she poses in a satin gown on a photography set which today can be described as Art Deco. NEAR FINE.

A handsome, richly colored Art Deco style map of Italy by Umberto Zimelli highlighting the food and wine found throughout Italy. Verso includes Deco inspired illustrations of food and wine from different Italian regions. This is the German language version of a brochure promoting tourism in Italy that was issued in several languages. Alberto Capatti & Massimo Montanari write in their book "Italian Cuisine: A Cultural History": "During the two decades of Fascist rule, the exploration of gastronomy was completed by obtaining a complete map of the regions, by sketching out a preliminary inventory of typical products, and by promoting the awareness of local cuisines with books, advertising campaigns, shows, and festivals. The artist Umberto Zimelli was commissioned by ENIT (the Italian National Tourist Board) to create "La carta delle principali specialità gastronomiche delle regioni italiane" (Map of the principal culinary specializations of the Italian regions). This was a map with which foreigners could identify the best products available in the cheese or dessert industry, the best wines and preserved foods, and contemplate steaming bowls of pasta placed between bottles of wine and molds of cheese." A handsome Deco Map - one of the most sought-after items of Italian travel ephemera. .
