Washington DC, New York, Pennsylvania, 1932. Oblong quarto. Measuring 11" x 7". String-tied red leather over paper boards with "School Day Treasures" stamped on the front cover. Contains 88 sepia toned gelatin silver and some black and white photographs measuring between 2" x 3" and 2.5" x 4", most with captions. Very good album with some creasing, tears, and edgewear with near fine photographs. A boy's album kept between 1923 and 1932 during various events and schooling. The album begins in 1923 when the album owner attended a Citizens Military Training Camp. The photos show young boys in tents and "dress uniforms" performing "fatigue drills" and showing the boys standing in a line awaiting orders. From there it switches to a 1927 trip to Washington DC where they spent the summer at Fort Washington U.S. Military Training Camp. When off duty they saw the DC highlights such as the Washington Monument and the Capitol Building and even toured the District from the air in a plane. His college days are captured throughout, because of his job as an usher at the Carnegie Music Hall it is likely he attended Carnegie Mellon University in 1929. During the summer of 1929 he worked at a hotel in Lilydale, New York where he spent "most of [his] spare time in this canoe." These photos show pretty girls posing in bathing suits, boys working at the boathouse, and performing handstands on the beach. In 1931 he lived on Pelug's Farm at a campsite - he includes a hand-drawn diagram of the grounds later in the album. It isn't clear if he was working there but it seems probable. He took photos … [Click Below for Full Description]

Caldwell, Erskine
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1932. First edition of Caldwell's classic work. Octavo, original cloth. Association copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Harry Behn with the best wishes of Erskine Caldwell M.G.M. Culver City June 10th 1933." The recipient, Harry Behn was a screenwriter who wrote classics such as The Big Parade and Hell's Angels. Behn collaborated with Caldwell on a screenplay (Call it Experience, p. 157). Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with some light expert restoration. Rare and desirable signed and inscribed. Unsentimentally realistic, this classic novel is a reflection of the effects of poverty on tenant farmers in the South during the Great Depression. It focuses on the Lester family, former cotton farmers who continue to live on their ancestors' plantation even though it has long ceased to be prosperous. Jeeter and Ada Lester have 17 children, two of whom still live at home: Ellie May, their only unmarried daughter who has a cleft lip, and Dude, their youngest son who is mentally handicapped. The family's antics, while at times vile and perverse, depict the racism and moral ambiguity that existed among some impoverished Southerners at that time and represent Erskine Caldwell's critique of the failed economic system and its consequences. It was the basis for the Broadway show which ran from 1933 to 1941 (then the longest-running play on record), and adapted into the 1941 film directed by John Ford. Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 greatest novels of the twentieth century.

Muse had an exceptionally long movie career appearing in well over a hundred movies from 1929 until his death in 1979. While opportunities for black actors were scant in Hollywood, he managed to appear in such films as *Dirigible*, *Flying Down to Rio*, *Double Indemnity*, *Huckleberry Finn*, *The Wrecker*, *The Count of Monte Cristo*, *Show Boat*, *Love Crazy*, *Watch on the Rhine*, *Heaven Can Wait*, *The Lost Weekend*, *God is My Co-Pilot* and, even in that classic of the celluloid art, *Car Wash*. He also appeared as Sam in the short-lived television series *Casablanca*. He was inducted into the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame in 1973, and is generally considered to be the first African-American to "star" in a Hollywood film. This novel was produced as a film in 1939 with a script co-written by Muse and Langston Hughes. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

MANUSCRIPT - BATAK].
1932. [53] ll. written on both sides except that the 1st and the last 4 pp. are blank.A rare Batak "pustaha" or divinatory manuscript from northern Sumatra, written in the old Hata Poda language, used as a secret language by the Batak "datu" (shamans, magicians or "witch doctors"), and illustrated with about 28 small drawings in the text, some showing human figures, others centipede-like, others abstract diagrams. It is a sort of notebook or manual with instructions for various methods of divination and/or hints serving as reminders for the shaman already familiar with the methods. Few survive in their original wooden boards, as in the present example. In general a pustaha discusses the art of preserving life, the art of destroying life and astrology. It therefore combines elements of religion, medicine and astrology. The main part of the text in the present pustaha describes procedures to create various defensive and offensive magical devices, totems or charms, along with their accompanying "tabas" (mantras). The book is accompanied by a report about it by Dr. Uli Kozok, Professor of Indonesian at the University of Hawaii, and we describe it based primarily on his report. Numerous features of the text and the physical form clearly show that the book was made for actual use by a datu (shaman), and not merely copied for a tourist or collector. The book is written on a folded strip of inner bark ("laklak"), but not extensively worked, beaten and macerated like tapa, so that the leaves remain stiff and the grain straight, the result resembling the thin split wood used in many … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pichel, Irving and Ernest B. Schoedsack (directors); James Ashmore Creelman (screenwriter); Richard Connell (story); Joel McCrea, Fay Wray (starring)
Culver City, CA: RKO Radio Pictures, 1932. Screenplay archive for the 1932 film. Archive consists of a Revised Final script and a typescript rewrite of the film's opening sequence onboard a yacht. The rewrite credits an unknown screenwriter named "Eliscu". Based on the Richard Connell short story first published in "Colliers" in 1924. A rare set of scripts for a groundbreaking film. A deranged millionaire, living on an island, arranges for a yacht to be shipwrecked on his shores, whereupon he arranges for the survivors to be hunted. Decades ahead of its time, and almost iconoclastic in the cynicism of its subtext, Pichel and Schoedsack used ideas from their film "Gow the Headhunter (1931), and predicted their classic "King Kong" (1933), and dozens of other films that would follow using a theme of man being the hunted rather than the hunter. Revised Final script: Tan titled wrappers, noted as REVISED FINAL SCRIPT on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped PLEASE RETURN TO STORY DEPT. / RKO STUDIOS, Inc. / WEST COAST," dated May 13, 1932, with credits for story writer Conell and screenwriter Creelman.

Jeeter and Ada Lester have 17 children, two of whom still live at home: Ellie May, their only unmarried daughter who has a cleft lip, and Dude, their youngest son who is mentally handicapped. The family's antics, while at times vile and perverse, depict the racism and moral ambiguity that existed among some impoverished Southerners at that time and represent Erskine Caldwell's critique of the failed economic system and its consequences. It was the basis for the Broadway show which ran from 1933 to 1941 (then the longest-running play on record), and adapted into the 1941 film directed by John Ford. Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 greatest novels of the twentieth century. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

[Franklin D Roosevelt]
[Atlanta]: Atlanta Biltmore Hotel, 1932. Broadside. Good. Broadside. Menu. Approx. 8" x 5". Sketched portrait of F.D.R. with list of foods served at the luncheon. Signed in pencil by Roosevelt next to his portrait and at the top of the menu. Some light foxing to the front. Brown toning, stains on the blank verso (menu was possibly removed from a scrapbook or some other like collection). Roosevelt stopped in Atlanta in October 24th to give a speech. An excerpt from speech found on the web site georgiainfo dot galileo dot usg dot edu follows: The great warmth of your welcome reinforces the obvious fact that so far as carrying on a campaign to get votes, my visit to this state has not been necessary. However, the purpose of coming down here is not to get votes. My visit to the south is to carry out the purposes of my trips to the west, to the coast and indeed throughout the country, which is not so much to be heard as to hear, and not so much to talk to you as to let you talk to me. It was only natural that in coming to the south I should have as an additional objective a visit to Warm Springs where I have spent so many hours and where I have had the good fortune to make so many friendships that I shall always cherish through life.

Huxley, Aldous
Garden City Publishing Co, Garden City, NY, 1932. First printing of this edition of Huxley's masterpiece. Octavo, original blue cloth. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. "A nightmarish prognostication of a future in which humanity has been destroyed by science. easily Huxley's most popular (and many good judges continue to think his best) novel" (DNB). "After the success of his first three novels, Huxley abandoned the fictional milieu of literary London and directed his satire toward an imagined future. He admitted that the original idea of Brave New World was to challenge H.G. Wells' Utopian vision. The novel also marks Huxley's increasing disenchantment with the world, which was to result in his leaving England for California in 1937 in search of a more spiritual life. The book was immediately successful" (Parker & Kermode, 161-62). Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 Greatest Novels of the twentieth century.

Fisher, Rudolph
New York: Covici Friede, (c.1932). New York: Covici Friede. Fair in Fair dj. (c.1932). First Edition. Hardcover. [an ex-rental library book, worn but not excessively so, with the jacket flaps, alas, firmly affixed to the pastedowns; the jacket itself is soiled and edgeworn, but substantially complete but for some very slight paper loss at the extremities, and reasonably presentable in a fresh mylar wrap-around]. Detective novel with a Harlem setting, said to be the first mystery novel to feature a black detective and exclusively black characters. The plot concerns the investigation by police detective Perry Dart and Dr. John Archer into the murder of N'Gana Frimbo, a self-exiled African king who had reinvented himself as a seer and a caster of spells for his Harlem clientele. In the description of one critic, the book "richly combines a classic mystery puzzle with a sympathetic and subtle evocation of black New York" in the early 1930s. This was the second and final novel by Fisher, who died just two years after its publication. Rare in the original printing, especially in jacket (albeit, in this instance, a rather degraded example). The jacket illustration is by another important Harlem Renaissance figure, Charles Henry Alston, a painter, sculptor, illustrator, muralist and teacher who was a founder of the Harlem Artists Guild and also served as the first African-American supervisor for the WPA's Federal Art Project. .

He was a leading member of the American Civil Liberties Union, and a prominent advocate for Georgist economic reform. Called a "sophisticated country lawyer", Darrow's wit and eloquence made him one of the most prominent attorneys and civil libertarians in the nation. He defended high-profile clients in many famous trials of the early 20th century, including teenage thrill killers Leopold and Loeb for murdering 14-year-old Robert "Bobby" Franks (1924); teacher John T. Scopes in the Scopes "Monkey" Trial (1925), in which he opposed statesman and orator William Jennings Bryan; and Ossian Sweet in a racially-charged self-defense case (1926).
