        Marianne. Grand Hebdomadaire Littéraire Illustré. No. 1 (26 October 1932) through No. 384 (28 February 1940)

      A large run of approx. 282 issues of the leftist and pacifist weekly journal, which presented itself as the journal of the French and foreign elite, founded by Gaston Gallimard and under the editorial direction of Emmanuel Berl and later Pierre Bost, featuring over 200 biting and satirical photomontages by esteemed Danish caricaturist Marinus Jakob Kjeldgaard, often depicting Hitler, Stalin, Churchill, or Mussolini, together with additional illustrations by artists including J.B. Aldebert, Frick, H.P. Gassier, and P. Orduet, and literary essays and short stories by many important writers, including Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, Georges Duhamel, Georges Auric, Julien Benda, H.G. Wells, Henry de Montherlant, Roger Martin du Gard, and many others. Profusely illustrated throughout. Large folio. Self-wrpps., some staining or soiling, some later issues brittle or with damage along horizontal fold or losses along edges. Paris (Gallimard) 1932-1940. The caricatures by Marinus are perhaps the most notable feature of Marianne, as they used pieces of real photographs, works of art, movie stills, and photos taken in the Marianne studios, combined in unintended ways, to achieve images such as Hitler playing cards with Mussolini or a baby Hitler being fed by Stalin. Although Marianne was very vocal in its politics early on its run, as World War II approached the publication had to temper its opinion somewhat. However, Marinus continued his harsh criticism through caricature, commenting especially on the peace negotiations, the risk of war, and the war itself. The issues present in this group include nos. 1-239, 241-247, 306, 311, 312, 315, 318, 320, 333, 337, 339-341, 345, 348-351, 354, 355, 357, 359-363, 366-369, 371, 376-379, 381, 383, and 384. A very scarce and unusually large collection; although a handful of libraries have microfilm versions according to WorldCat, only two institutions in the United States have any physical issues in their holdings as of October 2016.

        Thoughts and Adventures.

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited,, 1932. Octavo. Original brown cloth, gilt lettered spine and front cover. With the dust jacket. Portrait frontispiece of Churchill painting. Odd spot of foxing to contents; an excellent copy in the bright jacket with slight crease to spine panel. First edition, first impression. This is the second volume of Churchill's autobiographical writings, covering his early political career, the battle of Sidney Street, a near silence on Gallipoli, service on the Western Front, the negotiation of the Irish settlement, thoughts on the "Mass effects of modern life" and life "Fifty years hence". Containing a collection of Churchill's magazine and newspaper journalism written in the same lighter, informal style as My Early Life, the success of Thoughts and Adventures came as a considerable surprise to the publisher. Published on 10 November 1932 in a run of 4,000, three additional printings of 1,000 were required in the same month, two of them before publication, Butterworth writing to Churchill: "We are truly delighted at this success which confounds the Jonahs of the Bookselling trade?To keep pace with the increasing demand, we had to get both printers and binders to work overtime. The sheets were delivered by passenger train, and the cases were made by the binders in advance" (quoted in Cohen). A very difficult book to find in a jacket and in such superior condition.

        Avant les photographies. Les portraits au physionotrace gravés de 1788 à 1830. Catalogue des 1800 premiers portraits de ce genre

      1932 - [4]-346 pp. Troyes, J.L.Paton, 1932, in-4, [4]-346 pp, broché, couverture illustrée de l'éditeur, Exemplaire numéroté 17 d'un tirage limité dont le nombre n'est pas donné, avec paraphe de l'auteur. Catalogue très rare. Historien du physionotrace, Hennequin dresse ici l'inventaire des portraits cotés "1" à "R27" gravés par Chrétien, inventeur du procédé, et par son associé Quenedey, et les sépare en deux séries : la société parisienne à la veille de la Révolution et les parisiens au temps de la Révolution. "Édition nouvelle illustrée" ; l'ouvrage a paru à l'origine dans les Mémoires de la Société Académique de l'Aube, tomes 92 et 93 (1929-1930). Les 3e, 4e et 5e séries, alors en préparation, n'ont pas paru. Le procédé du physionotrace, mis au point en 1783 par Gilles-Louis Chrétien (1754-1811), connut une véritable vogue jusque dans les années 1830 ; grâce à ces machines à dessiner, il était désormais possible au plus grand nombre de posséder une image de soi, privilège jusque là détenu par l'aristocratie et la riche bourgeoisie. "Peu onéreux, vite exécutés et faciles à transporter, ces portraits de poche, majoritairement donnés aux membres de la famille ou aux amis, peuvent aussi être distribués à des clients, des électeurs ou orner des livres. Avec d'autres médias mécaniques qui se multiplient avant le triomphe de la photographie, ces portraits révèlent la place croissante que joue la visibilité du quotidien dans les phénomènes de reconnaissance sociale" (Guillaume Mazeau, "Portraits de peu. Le physionotrace au début du XIXe siècle", Revue d'histoire du XIXe siècle, 45. 2012, pp. 35-52). Exemplaire enrichi d'un envoi de l'auteur daté de Mars 1932 : "d'un Riceton [habitant de Ricey dans l'aube] à un autre Riceton à propos d'un Riceton. Sympathique hommage de l'auteur à son collègue de la Société Académique de l'Aube". René Hennequin est également l'auteur, sur le sujet, d'une biographie d'Edme Quenedey : Un "photographe" de l'époque de la Révolution et de l'Empire.

        Le Voyage de Babar.

      Paris: Editions du Jardin des Modes, Conde Nast,, 1932. Folio. Original red cloth-backed pictorial boards, titles within the design in black, pictorial endpapers. Illustrated throughout in colour. Slight superficial scratching to rear board, an excellent copy. First edition, first printing. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author at the head of the title page, "A Madame Eleanor Ewing. En souvenir de Vermala. Hommage respectueux de l'auteur Jean de Brunhoff". The recipient was born Eleanor Kitty Andrews (1880-1966); she married Alfred Washington Ewing (1881-1962) in 1912. Her husband was son of the Scottish physicist and engineer Sir James Alfred Ewing, who was a keen mountaineer and took his wife and children to Switzerland for mountaineering holidays. Brunhoff spent long periods of time in Switzerland, attempted to cure his tuberculosis, and died there on 16 October 1937. Montana-Vermala is an area with several sanatoria, as well as ski resort. Le Voyage de Babar is the second of three Babar books published in Jean de Brunhoff's lifetime. His son Laurent continued the series and one occasionally sees examples signed by the younger Brunhoff, but presentation copies inscribed by Jean are of considerable rarity.

        [Two Signed Promotional Letters re: HOW TO WRITE]

      Paris, 1932. Two pages, on two quarto sheets of Plain Edition letterhead. Old folds from mailing, a few small nicks and soft creases, but very good. Two boilerplate typescript letters promoting to booksellers Gertrude Stein's HOW TO WRITE, published the preceding November as the third Plain Edition. Both are signed in ink "A.B. Toklas" in her distinctive hand. One has a date emendation and insertion of recipient's name and address in original typescript by Toklas, and a pencil highlight in the left margin next to the terms is likely the work of the recipient at "Rosengren's Nook [sic] Store" then still located in Chicago. The letters emphasize the book's positive reception, citing and quoting reviews by Marcel Brion and Ellen du Poy. While one might assume a number of such letters were posted at the time by Toklas and Stein, few appear to have survived.

        Vers de Collège.

      Paris: Mercure de France,, 1932. Introduction et notes par Jules Mouquet. Small octavo. Original wrappers. Spine a little tanned and creased, wrappers somewhat marked and ruffled round the edges, sound and internally clean, very good condition overall. First edition, presentation copy inscribed by the editor to Enid Starkie, one of 100 copies on pur fil lafuma, of Rimbaud's student poems. The exceptional association inscription, to the half-title, reads: "A Mademoiselle Enid Starkie, ces excercises scolaires d'un grand poète en vive sympathie litteraire, Jules Mouquet, St-Valery-sur-Somme" ("To Ms. Enid Starkie, these schoolboy exercises of a great poet, with vivid literary friendship..."). Enid Starkie (1897-1970) was to become the chief biographer and literary critic in English of Rimbaud and Baudelaire, though at the time of this book's publication she had only published on the obscure poetry of Emile Verhaeren. Irish by birth, she studied at Alexandra College, Dublin, Somerville College, Oxford, and the Sorbonne, Paris. She graduated to teach Modern Languages (with an emphasis on French) at Oxford and for many decades established herself as a brilliant French scholar. Her biographies of Baudelaire (1933) and Rimbaud (Arthur Rimbaud in Abyssinia, 1937 and Arthur Rimbaud, 1947) played a major role in establishing their reputations among English readers, and she was granted the first Oxford doctorate for Modern Languages for her first work on Rimbaud. She later published on Gide, Proust, and others, was made officer to the Legion d'honneur in 1958 and CBE in 1967, and was well recognised in Oxford circles as an eccentric - a Time magazine article portrayed her as "a brilliant Rimbaud scholar who pub-crawls about Oxford in bright red slacks and beret while smoking cigars." Mouquet also published editions of the juvenile poetry of Baudelaire. Scarce in this issue, rare inscribed, and highly desirable with such an association.

        Tight Lines [SIGNED]

      Los Angeles: Tight Lines Publishers, 1932. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 8vo, 239 pp, bound in full leather with title and image of swordfish stamped on front cover, top edge gilt. A clean, sound copy, neatly re-backed in closely matched leather, with most of original spine laid down. Inscribed by Bandini under his tipped-in photo "Perhaps this will bring back memories of 'Palatial' days -- Good luck, Ralph Bandini." The inscribee is not named. Bandini (1884-1961) was a pioneer of big game fishing off the coast of California. "Immensely respected by fellow anglers within the newly developed segment of the sport, Bandini championed conservation of California's coastal resources as a member of the state's fish and game commission, was a member of many conservation groups, and served on the board of directors for the storied Tuna Club of Santa Catalina Island….His most enduring legacy to the sport of big game fishing is his writing, in particular his three books entitled Tight Lines, Veiled Horizons, and Men, Fish, and Tackle. These books, privately published and now quite rare, are among the most revealing volumes written about this formative period in the evolution of saltwater game fishing" (International Game Fish Association).

        The King of the Golden River.

      London: George G. Harrap & Co Ltd,, 1932. Octavo (232 x 143 mm). Specially bound for the publisher in green full morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, gilt lettered and banded spine, single-line gilt panel on sides with simple square dot at the corners, top edges gilt, others untrimmed, two-line gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers (the original pictorial endpapers bound in after binders blanks), with the binder's card slipcase. Colour frontispiece and 3 colour plates, black and white illustrations in the text by Rackham. Spine lightly sunned and rubbed. An excellent copy. Deluxe edition, number 1 of 570 copies signed by the artist. This is one of nine "special copies" (see the publisher's handwritten note in the other special copy) in a luxury binding commissioned by the publisher and including a striking full-page original pen-and-ink and watercolour drawing by Rackham (signed and dated "Arthur Rackham 1932"), showing Southwest Wind, Esquire, doffing his hat to Schwartz, one of the two cruel Black Brothers. Describing his artistic method for these "specials", Rackham pointed out that "my little sketches must inevitably be of a light hearted or joking nature... They have to be spontaneous and free handed. The nature of the paper is such that there can be no preparatory drawing and no alterations". Riall comments that "From The King of the Golden River [1932], Harrap issued nine or ten copies, seven being for sale, of a special issue of the first limitation numbers of the limited edition" (A New Bibliography of Arthur Rackham, 1994, p. xvi).

      New York: New World Music Corporation / Harms, 1932. First edition. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Upright folio. Original wrappers printed in red, black, and white. Title (vb); Cast (vb); Synopsis (vb); Musical Program; 5 - 198. This copy has been inscribed by Gershwin with an AMQS on the title page to his lifelong friend George Pallay: "For George Pallay â??

Nicely bound in modern grey cloth with title to spine, original front wrapper bound in (rear wrapper lacking) and with edge tears repaired and filled on this page and the following, otherwise very clean internally and in fine condition overall. Fuld p. 654, indicating that the present score was published on April 29, 1932. An excellent association copy. <br style="">"Of The I Sing" opened in New York City on Dec. 26, 1931 and ran for 441 performances, receiving critical and box office success. Brooks Atkinson's original review in the New York Times called it "a taut and lethal satire... funnier than the government, and not nearly so dangerous." In 1932, it became the first musical comedy ever to be awarded the Pulitzer Prize.  An original musical comedy in two acts, with the book by George S. Kaufman and Morrie Ryskind, music by George Gershwin and lyrics by Ira Gershwin, the songs in the production include: "Wintergreen For President"; "Who Is the Lucky Girl To Be?"; "The Dimple on My Knee"; "Because, Because"; "As the Chairman of the Committee"; "How Beautiful"; "Never Was There a Girl So Fair"; "Some Girls Can Bake a Pie"; "Love is Sweeping the Country"; "Of Thee I Sing"; "(Here's) a Kiss for Cinderella"; "I Was the Most Beautiful Blossom"; "Hello, Good Morning"; "Who Cares?"; "Garcon, S'il vous plait"; "The Illegitimate Daughter"; "We'll Impeach Him"; "The (Senatorial) Roll Call"; "Jilted"; "Who Could Ask For Anything More? I'm About to Be a Mother)"; "Posterity (Is Just Around the Corner)"; "Trumpeter, Blow Your (Golden) Horn"; and "Finale (On That Matter No One Budges)." <br>"George Pallay [was] a Paley cousin and a friend of George's since 1917. Pallay was a bit of a shady character. It was said that he had Mafia connections. A stock promoter and investor who had changed his name from Abramson, he was often part of George's entourage, someone who arranged the tickets, knew the right bootleggers. He was the friend who would get the girl for George and then get rid of the girl for George. Pallay was singularly devoted to George, and no one had been more vigilant during the final days. Pallay had played a  key role at the hospital during [Gershwin's brain] surgery, having been stationed at a desk just outside the operating theater, along with George's agent, Arthur Lyons. As the operation progressed, the doctors would tell Pallay what was happening, and then he would relay the latest update by telephone to the four family members â?? Lee and Ira, and Lee's sister Emily Paley and her husband, Lou, who had just arrived â?? waiting on another floor. At first the news seemed good, and Pallay informed the family that a cyst the size of a grapefruit had been discovered and excised. This seemed to be good news, and the doctors were momentarily optimistic. The news was relayed to the family. Then the surgeons discovered that in fact there remained an embedded tumor. At this point, George's brain was swelling uncontrollably. The outlook was grim. This terrible update was relayed by Pallay to the family." (Katharine Weber, The Memory of All That: George Gershwin, Kay Swift, and My Family's Legacy of Infidelities, New York: Broadway Paperbacks, 2011, pp. 216-217). <br style="">

        Love on the Dole

      The printer's final copy of 'Love on the Dole', with notes and corrections by Greenwood and the earlier titles of "They Call it Love, A Tale of the Two Cities" and "The Lovers, A Tale of the Two Cities", crossed out, with the final title substituted in pencil. Age toned typewritten papers, with two trial title pages mocked up by hand, with some creasing and minor tears. It is bound in simple, seemingly fairly contemporaneous paper boards, with faux leather spine, the boards are clean, but bumped and rubbed to the edges, the spine has damage at the ends and is rubbed. It provides a fascinating insight into the final stages of the novel's development, showing that the title was far from fixed during writing and that the final title seemingly came as a flash of inspiration just prior to publication, with the hastily written pencil title replacing the two carefully lettered earlier efforts. Doubtless the novel would have been influential even without this title change, with its description of the pressures of unemployment and the humiliation inflicted by the means test, but the sheer emotive power and quotability of the phrase "Love on the Dole" must have been a factor in helping Greenwood's novel into the vanguard for social change. It is unsurprising that, along with other key works of the period, such as George Orwell's 'The Road to Wigan Pier', it is credited with contributing to popular pressure for reform which led to the eventual foundation of the welfare state.
