        66 Pieces of Original Art for "The Talk of the Town" Section of The New Yorker

      66 original pieces of art for the New Yorker. Pen and ink on artists board. Unsigned. Each is roughly 12" x 6.25". The vast majority have a The New Yorker Editorial Department slip attached with handwritten advice (mostly of the "Rush!! Must have Proof Final Today" variety). A very few have partial slips or the slips detached. Undated but from the subjects and some of the cultural context, probably largely from the 1950s and 1960s. These spot drawings appeared as the primary illustration for each weekly version of The Talk of the Town. Subjects are diverse: grumpy policemen, harried mailmen, air, train, and bus travellers; bookstore browsers; George Washington in New York; a king and queen tossing coins to a crowd; LBJ; an old school main frame computer; a man turning a corner confronted by a truncheon bearing "JD" (juvenile delinquent); a ghost picketing a cemetery; real estate shoppers; a take on New York City seceding from the state of New York; a scientist doing a test on mice; an astronaut in a space capsule; a couple watching a television with someone arguing for "peace"; musical notes picketing to save Carnagie Hall; Richard Nixon on television; various animals: birds, horses, porcupines, frogs, polar bears, groundhogs, monkeys, squirrels, and much more. Soglow was an American cartoonist, probably best known for his long-running syndicated cartoon for King Features, "The Little King" which first appeared in The New Yorker in 1931. His pen and ink drawings, usually uncaptioned, were deceptively simple and in many ways they set the standard for "spot art" in the magazine. Soglow drew a significant number of the spot drawings that appeared in The Talk of the Town for as long as he was at the magazine, for well over a quarter century. They are still being used today. This collection represents a significant amount of his output for the Talk pieces. .

From an article by RUTH PUTNAM MASON in the Milwaukee Sentinel - Dec 24, 1949 - I was the kind of woman who makes women shudder. They would look at me with pity, and sometimes scorn. I was a "hopeless" alcoholic. I had been on so many benders that people used to point to me and whisper: "There goes Ruth - the drunkard." Liquor pulled me from the heights of success into the gutter. It wrecked my career, transformed me into a thief, sent me to prison and finally landed me in a mental institution. But I am no longer afraid, nor ashamed. For I have been cured of my mental illness and my craving for alcohol. THE BOOK WAS MADE INTO A MOVIE "I WALK ALONE."

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.

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.
