        Yucca 1931. "The Book of the Future"

      Denton, Texas: North Texas State Teachers College. 1931. First. First edition. Quarto. Blue, red, and silver embossed buckram. 320pp. Heavily illustrated. Rear hinge tender, and a little rubbing, but near fine. The editor's own copy with his name embossed on the front cover. A beautifully conceived college yearbook with distinctive streamlined Art Deco design, and which is dedicated to iconic Jazz Age artist John Held, Jr. Laid in is a Typed Letter Signed from the college president congratulating Medders on a job well-done, a certificate of award made out to Medders, several sheets of stationery for the book, and a portrait of the yearbook staff. More importantly, the dedicatee, John Held, Jr., the greatest cartoon chronicler of the era's flapper co-eds and their Jazz Age "sheiks," is featured in a full-page photograph (credited to the prestigious New York photographer Apeda). The original 8" x 10" photograph, Signed by Held, is laid into the book opposite his portrait. Apparently his duties as dedicatee were limited to choosing the toothsome co-ed who was featured in the book as "Queen of the Book of the Future." Unique. .

        Neuer Lächerlich-jedoch vernünfftiger, bescheidener und Curioser Narren-Calender / Auf das Jahr 1710. Worinnen von Monat zu Monat ein nach seiner Natur und Eigenschafft entworffener Narr / nach dem jetzigen Stylum der Welt / auf das accurateste beschrieben wird. Eine Invention, welche schon zum Vierdten mahl continuiret und an das Tages-Liecht kommet / auch wegen sowohl beygefügter Nothwendigkeit des Calenders / als lustigen Schreib-Art der Curiosen Welt zur angenehmen Gemüths-Ergötzung dienen kan.

      Freystadt [fingiert], Peter Marteau.. 16 x 18,5 cm. Tit. (in Rot- u. Schwarzdr.), 30 Bll. Mit Kalendarium in Rot- und Schwarzdruck u. einigem Holzschnitt-Zierrat. OBrosch. m. Deckelbild in Kupferstich. Rücken m. blauem Papierstreifen verstärkt u. m. altem hs. Titelschildchen. Vorderdeckel m. Wasserfl. u. an 3 Stellen m. unterlegten Randrissen, Rü. etw. berieben, Hinterdeckel wohl später m. altem Papier erneuert u. m. letztem Bl. verklebt (dadurch Leimschatten), Text im Seitenrand etw. braunfleckig, Ecken z. Tl. eselsohrig.. Kosch XI, 108; Böck L., Ein Altwiener Narrenkalender (in Zs. f. Bücherfreunde 23 Jg., Hft. 3, 1931, Ss. 41-45). Sehr selten. Einer von (vermutlich) acht erschienenen Jahrgängen des 'Narrencalenders', verfasst und anonym herausgegeben von Johann Valentin Neiner (1679-1748), einem Weltpriester in der Nachfolge von Abraham a Sancta Clara, der sein lebenslanges Vorbild war. N. gab die Schriften seines großen Lehrmeisters heraus, dessen Nachruf er auch 1709 verfasste. Er beschrieb, ähnlich wie dieser in satirisch-volkstümlichen Mahnrufen die Ereignisse seiner Zeit und produzierte neben Kanzelreden auch so genannte Narren-, Moral- und Sittensatiren. - Von den bibliographisch nachgewiesenen acht Jahrgängen dieses Kalenders hat sich nur wenig erhalten. Ludwig Böck konnte seinerzeit nur 3 Jahrgänge auffinden: "Als Drucker und Verleger ist Peter Marteau in Freystadt (in einem anderen Jahrgang: Cöln) genannt, ein sicheres Zeichen, daß der wahre Druckort noch zu suchen ist. .. Jeder Jahrgang enthält neben derb-satirisch gehaltenen Prognostika auf die vier Jahreszeiten, die, von der bei Moralisten üblichen Übertreibung abgesehenen, sehr schätzbare Beiträge zum Bilde der Zeit liefern, und zu jedem Monat eine Abhandlung über eine Spezies von Narren. .. Zeichnen sich durch die Mannigfaltigkeit der Einfälle, die Kühnheit und den Bilderreichtum der Sprache, die Schlagfertigkeit des Witzes, sowie durch reifes und scharfes Urteil über die menschlichen Laster und Verkehrtheiten aus, und .. auch wertvolle zeitgeschichtliche Züge.."

        Hollywood Wife

      New York: G. Howard Watt. 1931. First. First edition. Bookplate of actor Jean Hersholt, a tiny tear at the crown, near fine in near fine dustwrapper (with art by Crary) with tiny nicks. An exotic tale of Hollywood orgies, it is not clear whether this is fact or fiction, but most likely some combination of both. Inscribed by the author: "To Jean Hersholt, a 'Hollywoodite' whom I am proud to know. Anabel Lane 'Miss Anonymous.'" Laid in is a two-page Autograph Letter Signed from Lane to Hersholt, recounting her trip across country by motor car, her health, a visit from her publisher, and a mention of "Von," possibly Erich Von Stroheim. Hersholt, the Danish actor best known for such roles as the grandfather in Shirley Temple's Heidi and after whom the famous Humanitarian Award was named, was an avid collector of first editions. Lane was a columnist and film critic, as near as we can tell. .

        The Cicadas [West's Copy of Huxley's Book, with Notes]

      London: Chatto & Windus. 1931. Nathanael West's copy of Huxley's collection of poetry, with West's holograph notes on five of the front and rear endpages. Approximately 250 words, mostly quotes of other writers -- Huxley, Gray, Shakespeare; some light, but most quite serious: "In matters of love it is absurd to stand on your dignity and claim your rights. Such experiences cannot be judged and calculated like a matter of business. One gives as much and as long as one can & one does not bargain. Take what is given to you." West concludes with: "The paths of glory lead but to the grave." The year this book was published, West published his first novel. Later in the 1930s, both West and Huxley were employed as Hollywood screenwriters. West died in 1940 at the age of 37. The provenance of this book leads from West to his brother-in-law, S.J. Perelman, to the writer and bookseller, George Sims, who recounts the circumstances of his purchasing books from Perelman in the early 1970s, presumably including this one. A photocopy of a note from Sims is laid in. Fading to spine, spotting to cloth, short tear to lower front joint; still very good, without dust jacket. Publisher's extra spine label tipped to rear free endpaper. A wonderful glimpse of West's musings and inner life. First Edition. Hardcover.

        The Rise of the Goldbergs

      New York/Newark: Barse & Co.. Near Fine in Very Good+ dj. (c.1931). First Edition. Hardcover. (price-clipped) [a lightly-worn book, with a minor bump to the top rear corner and some slight dust-soiling to the top edge; jacket is bright and colorful, with some very minor paper loss at spine ends (no loss of text), some internal dampstaining to the rear panel with only negligible effect to the exterior]. (frontispiece photo of Gertrude Berg) "The Rise of the Goldbergs" (the title was eventually shortened to simply "The Goldbergs") debuted as a 15-minute weekly program on NBC radio in November of 1929, and was an immediate hit. The show became a daily broadcast in 1931, the same year this book appeared, and by which time (per the book's introduction) NBC had received "so many requests .... for copies of the episodes that it has been found advisable to publish the first volume with subsequent volumes to follow." (Essentially, then, these are radio scripts rendered into short-story form.) The radio series ran through 1946 and was subsequently adapted for both Broadway ("Molly and Me") and as an early TV series -- but interestingly, although the intro to this book even mentions "numerous offers...from moving picture producers," they didn't get around to making a "Goldbergs" movie until 1950. (One can easily imagine Samuel Goldwyn sagely declaring the property "too Jewish!") The colorful dustjacket, with a cartoon illustration of the Berg clan, is a genuine rarity. .
