        This Side of Paradise

      Charles Scribner's Sons [Scribners; Scribner], New York 1931 - A near fine book in a good original dustjacket. The book is the uncommon 17th printing (1931); according to Bruccoli, there were 290 copies of it. The dustjacket is the eleventh printing (March 1921). Though surviving jackets from early printings are routinely married to better books, I'm prepared to believe this book and jacket have been together their whole lives. The boards and gilding are bright, with minute losses at "SCRIBNERS" consistent with chipping to the dustjacket. The front hinge is tender but holding; the spine is a little cocked; there's a shadow at the first blank from a clipping once laid in, which carries faintly onto the half-title. The book is excellent. The dustjacket has suffered some chips and tears, and may owe its survival to some long-ago tape reinforcements, shadows from which remain. Still, when one can find a jacket for this book at all, many things can be forgiven. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      1931 - According to Sir Roger L'Estrange. With Fifty Drawings by Alexander Calder. [Paris:] Harrison of Paris | New York: Minton, Balch and Company, (1931). Original beige paper-covered boards with unlettered beige cloth spine, with dust jacket. First Edition, printed in France, of which this is one of twenty copies on Auvergne hand-made paper designated "Not For Sale," as specified in the Publisher's Note. (There were also 595 numbered copies on Auvergne, plus 50 copies on Guarro Spanish rag paper.) The fifty drawings by Calder are quite whimsical, along the lines of his wire sculptures for which he is considerably more famous. This is a near-fine copy; the very scarce dust jacket, on which is reproduced one of Calder's drawings, is near-fine as well (very slight wear at the corners, one small chip out of the front flap). Quite uncommon in this condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

C'est mon album de "Graphismes" : les gravures ont été conçues et exécutées avant les textes (empruntés à droite et à gauche) dont je les ai accompagnées. » (Sylvain Laboureur, Catalogue complet de l'oeuvre de Jean-Emile Laboureur, Tome II, 409).

        FRONTE, rivista bimestrale d'arte e di letteratura diretta da MARINO MAZZACURATI ( fasc. 1 e 2 tutto il pubblicato), Roma, Tip. Camera dei Deputati, 1931

      - cm. 28 x cm. 21,5 - brossure con piccoli danni ai dorsi e piatti legg.consunti, pp.94 + 98. Rivista, assai rara, diretta da Marino Mazzacurati . Copertine illustrate al tratto da Scipione (Gino Bonichi). Dopo essere stata presentata nel marzo '31 su "Italia Letteraria" come un evento letterario-artistico, considerati gli artisti chiamati a collaborare, la rivista esce faticosamente nel giugno '31; poi, nonostante il successo e i consensi, vedr? la luce soltanto un secondo numero ad ottobre '31, sopratutto per le difficolt? economiche di Mazzacurati, costretto a Gualtieri (RE) e quindi impossibilitato a vivere a Roma e proseguire la sua regia e la ragnatela di relazioni per sostenere la qualit? ed il livello della rivista stessa. Assai interessante è la "presentazione sul primo numero" che recita : .Quelli che vogliono essere gli intenti di questa rivista, abbiamo la presunzione di credere che risultino sempre più chiari dalla scelta degli artisti invitati ad offrirci il contributo delle loro opere. Un discorso preliminare, per quanto diffuso e cattedratico, non potrebbe portarci che a riconoscere nella felicit? di una compiutezza espressiva il fine ultimo dell'arte. Nel 1988, per l'editore De Luca, uscir? un apprezzabile "quaderno di ricerca" che inquadra le vicende della Rivista, con interessanti riferimenti alla sua nascita ed agli importanti collegamenti tra i protagonisti, inseriti nel contesto culturale dell'epoca. NUMERO UNO GIUGNO 1931 - pp. 94 + pubblicit? . Brossura nocciola con piccoli difetti al dorso. Scritti di Carlo Carr? "Revisioni", Ernesto De Fiori "Scultura", G.B.
