        Vampyr (Original French still photograph from the 1932 film)

      Paris: Film-Production Carl Dreyer, 1932. Vintage double weight matte finish French still photograph from the 1932 film. Shown is Rena Mandel as Gisele. "Vampyr" was a German-French co-production, and Dreyer, who maintained strict creative control over his films, has production companies in both Berlin and Paris. This photo was issued from the Paris office, with a label crediting Film-Production Carl Dreyer affixed to verso, with the French title of "L'Etrange Aventure de David Gray," the production office's Paris address, and a credit for Mandel. The film was funded by Baron Nicholas de Gunzburg, a German aristocrat and non-professional actor who acted in the lead role under the pseudonym Julian West. Gunzburg plays a student of the occult who arrives to a small village outside of Paris. He finds the village to be rife with supernatural creatures who are luring the townspeople to suicide so that they can become servants of the devil. Dreyer's first sound film, for which dialogue had to be recorded in three languages. As a result very little dialogue was recorded and title cards used for much of the story, with most dialogue and effects added in post production. The film was shot in 1930 and 1931, but its distributor UFA delayed the debut in Berlin until May 1932, as they wanted the American film adaptations of "Dracula" and "Frankenstein" to play first. Shot on location outside of Paris in Aisne, Loiret, and Oise. 6.25 x 8.25 inches (16 x 21 cm). About Near Fine. Criterion Collection 437. Flynn, p. 41.

        Die Stellung der Nationalsozialistischen Deutschen Arbeiterpartei (NSDAP) zur Judenfrage; Eine Materialsammlung vorgelegt vom Centralverein deutscher Staatsbürger jüdischen Glaubens E.V.

      Centralverein deutscher Staatsbürger jüdischen Glaubens e.V., Berlin 1932 - Quarto. Original stiff printed wraps portfolio with seven printed folders containing loose leaves. Collection of material defining the position of the NSDAP on the Judenfrage (The Jewish Question) presented by the Central Union of German Citizens of the Jewish Faith. The material was taken from the archives of the Jewish organization and is presented strictly as quotes without judgment and commentary on the Nazi documents. It illustrates the diabolical stance, e.g. in the words of Hitler and Goebbels, and highlights the anti-Semitic position of the NSDAP. The selection of the documents for this portfolio was carried out with the utmost sense of responsibility. The publication was presented to President von Hindenburg right before the critical elections of 1932 in Germany. The seven folders are subdivided in statements of the NSDAP on the Jewish Question:a) the party program and literature, b) in spoken words, c) in plays and songs, d) in the press,e) relating to boycott, f) relating to riots, and g) petitions in the Prussian parliament. The texts are based on German newspaper reports on these topics with the section containing information on physical assaults on Jewish people from the end of 1929 to the end of 1932 representing the largest contingent of reports. Text in German, Gothic script. Tears and chips at external edges of portfolios and some rubbing, some age-toning but otherwise in near fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Operating Instruction for RCA Photophone Type PM-15B, Newsreel Recording Equipment, Including Operating Instructions for RCA Photophone Instructions for RCA Photophone Model 4PA38A1 Portable Recording Amplifier

      R.C.A. 1932 - Users' Guide for the RCA Photophone Sound-on-Film System, ca. 1930-1933.++ "The trouble about these beautiful, novel things is that they interfere so with one's arrangements. Every time I see or hear a new wonder like this I have to postpone my death right off." Mark Twain (1906)++ Printed by RCA Photophone, Inc., New York, U.S.A. 11x8.5", 11 pages, with 12 original photographs of equipment, plus a large folding schematic. Printed ca. early 1930's. No copies located in WorldCat/OCLC. +++ "RCA Photophone was the trade name given to one of four major competing technologies that emerged in the American film industry in the late 1920s for synchronizing electrically recorded audio to a motion picture image. RCA Photophone was an optical sound, "variable-area" film exposure system, in which the modulated area (width) corresponded to the waveform of the audio signal. The three other major technologies were the Warner Bros. Vitaphone sound-on-disc system, as well as two "variable-density" sound-on-filmsystems, Lee De Forest's Phonofilm, and Fox-Case's Movietone. When Joseph P. Kennedy and other investors merged Film Booking Offices of America (FBO) with the Keith-Albee-Orpheum theater chain and Radio Corporation of America, the resulting movie studio RKO Radio Pictures used RCA Photophone as their primary sound system.”--Wikipedia The machine -- eventually branded the RCA Photophone -- failed to catch on, in part because 35 mm film was expensive and required time-consuming photographic processing before it could be played back. The device lost out to competing technologies and was eventually abandoned.--retrothing.com “The research engineers of the General Electric Company and the Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company, being aware about ten years ago of the probable value to the theatrical industry of an effective system of sound motion picture production, initiated fundamental researches which have been carried forward to the point of fully meeting the aims of these investigators. The resulting basic methods, suitably developed, and tested by extensive commercial experience in the studio recording and theater reproducing installations of RCA Photophone, Inc., form a complete and modern system which is at present widely used in the sound motion picture industry. .”-­Proceedings of the Institute of Radio Engineers Volume 18, Number 10 October, 1930. “THE RCA PHOTOPHONE SYSTEM OF SOUND RECORDING AND REPRODUCTION FOR SOUND MOTION PICTURES* BY ALFRED N. GOLDSMITH AND MAX C. BATSEI The introduction of sound-on-film motion pictures--the Talkies--was a major innovation and social experience--to hear people talking seemingly on-screen was at first an astonsihing moment for many: "On the evening of February 15, 1931 four journalists were invited to the London offices of the Producers Distributing Company, an American film distributor," as documented by Jean-Marc Pelletier (2009). There, the engineer Eric Allan Humphriss, who had been working on the RCA Photophone sound-on-film technology, reproduced in front of the journalists the vocal line "all of a tremble" that he had manually painted in ink "on a strip of cardboard" and then "photographed onto the sound track of a blank film." By all accounts the journalists themselves trembled.18 Cecil Thompson (1931, p. 1) opened his report for the Daily Express by setting the atmosphere: "Four men sat in a darkened room in London"; then, astonished by the events, he imparted that his biases about the supernatural had been superseded by the progress of technology, "It was not a spiritualistic séance. There was nothing supernatural about the phenomenon. The experience can only be described as the birth of the world's eighth wonder-the creation of the 'robot' voice"." --"Re-voicing" Reality: Synthesis as Simulation", in "Sound Synthesis, Representation and Narrative Cinema in the Transition to Sound (1926-1935)”, by Maurizio Corbella; Anna Katharina Windisch, in Cinemas : Revue [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The New RCA Victor Photophone Recording System

      RCA 1932 - 11x8.5", 44 typed mimeo leaves, with 24 leaves of blue-line photographs and schematics of the equipment. Punch-bound at one time, though metallic binding element is not present. Printed on the stationery of "R.C.A. Victor Company, Inc., Engineering Department". Very good condition.+++ This a sound-on-film incunable. This means the pamphlet was printed within the first few years of the first "talking" (synchronized sound, or sound technologically coupled to image) motion picture. The first feature length film using sound throughout (1) the length of the movie was The Jazz Singer, which was released in 1927 and used a sound-on-disc (2) system of recording. That means that the audio portion of the film was recorded onto records, and then synchronized in playback with the film to match up the audio and video--this technology was obviously not the future.+++The technology of sound-on-film would take the day, and in very short order, leading to four different systems, of which the Photophone was one. Photophone's share of the prospective studio users was pretty good: the earliest major producers/licensees included Walt Disney Productions (after 1932), RKO Radio Pictures, republic Pictures, Warner Borthers, and Pathe.+++" From the producer's standpoint, variable area film recording has one great advantage that places this system in a class far ahead of all others". And on the Film Phonograph Reproducing Equipment: " the need for combining two or more sound tracks, the adding of sound effects to an original recording, or matching around levels of scenes in the final editing of a picture has brought re-recording into an increasingly important position in sound picture production".+++The work is in general a technical report and sales pitch for the new system. It includes the following sections: General introduction (1-7, 4 illustrations), the Ribbon Microphone (8-12, 3 illustrations); Microphone Distribution Panel, (13-14pp, 2 illustrations); Microphone Mixing Panel (15-17, 2 illustrations); Compensator Panel (18-21, 2 illustrations); Recording Amplifier (22-25pp, 2 illustrations); Ground Noise reduction Amplifier (28-30, 2 illustrations); 35mm Film Recorder (31-34, 2 illustrations); 16mm Film recorder (page 35, 2 illustrations); Film Phonograph Reproducing Equipment (36-39 pages, 2 illustrations); Phototube Amplifier (40-41pp, 1 illustration); 35mm to 16mm Film Re-recorder, 42-45pp, 2 illustrations). Notes: 1. Earlier on in the mid-1920's there were efforts of using sound in film but limited to music or very specific areas of the film, most of which in the end was silent. 2. The movie was made with the Vitaphone system, which was not long for this world, soon to be replaced by the more sophisticated sound-on-film systems. "In 1925 GE started a program to develop commercial sound-on-film equipment based on Hoxie's work. Unlike the Phonofilm and Movietone systems in which the audio modulated the intensity of a recording lamp which exposed the soundtrack, thus creating a variable-density track, the GE system employed a fast-acting mirror galvanometer to create a variable-area soundtrack. A number of demonstrations of this system, now known as Photophone, were given in 1926 and 1927. The first public screenings with this system were of a sound version (music plus sound effects only) of the silent film Wings which was exhibited as a road-show in around a dozen specially equipped theatres during 1927."--Wiki

        The Clue in the Diary; Nancy Drew Mystery Stories # 7

      Grosset & Dunlap, New York 1932 - frontis & 3 plates (glossy); Small 8vo 7½" - 8" tall; 202 pages; The uncommon true 1st edition and printing of the 7th title in the Nancy Drew series. Bound in original light blue cloth with title lettering to spine in blue and to cover in blue outlined yellow type. Plain cream colored endpages. Farah 1932 A-1. The last of the books to be published in the original binding format and only in the 1st printing of this title. Illustrated by Russell Tandy with a frontis and three plates on glossy stock. Title list at front and rear of book both end with #7 "Diary". This copy is a bit tired, shaken in the spine and with a split in the front endpage along the inner hinge with crash exposed but holding. Cloath at spine sunned and lightly to moderately faded but with titles still showing bold. Corners lightly bumped and slightly rubbed through. Trace fray and thinning to cloth at spine ends. Three distinct prior owner names in pencil and pen to front endpage, two of which have been crossed out. Contents generally clean and neat, though with the infrequent instance of superficial fingering soil and the expected general light toning to the page stock. A small pencil eraser sized dent in the front board and small rectangular shadow from an old placement of masking tape to a blank are of the cover board. This title is elusive in the true 1st printing, here offered in a worn but generally sound example - a filler or holding copy. Good only [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Indian Round Table Conference: The Hand Colored Caricatures of Emery Kelen

      [London]: NP, [ca. 1932]. 41 leaves, each 15 by 11 inches, some light toning to the edges of most, European Press service stamp on several, else in fine condition with bright colors. Technically an incomplete set, but still a substantial grouping, as evidence suggests that Kelen would market these separately to the media. Also included are two original drawings by Kelen of Goebbels and his fellow German, Franz Von Papen, probably done at the Lausanne Peace Conference in 1924. OCLC locates only three locations with a full portfolio of eighty four plates. Group of 41 caricatures from the first and second Indian Round Table Conferences [1931 and 1932] organized by the British Government to discuss constitutional reforms in India. Three Indian Round Table Conferences occurred between 1930 and 1932. Kelen, who routinely worked with fellow Hungarian, Alois Derso was born in Gyor, Hungary in 1896. His and Derso's collaboration included twenty years of work in Europe and ten in the U.S. They reported on and caricatured diplomats and politicians as well as covered the activities of the League of Nations, eventually leaving Europe in 1938 primarily to escape the growing threat of anti Semitism. Provenance: ex Lt. Colonel V.S.M. de Guinzbourg, United Nations staffer, author of 'Wit and Wisdom of the United Nations' with his custom [?] snake skin portfolio present.

      1932. One of 575 Copies Signed by Arthur Rackham[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. RUSKIN, John. The King of the Golden River. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: George Harrap & Co., [1932]. One of 575 copies signed by Arthur Rackham, this being copy No. 521. Octavo (8 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches; 222 x 146 mm.). 47, [1] pp. Four color plates and fifteen drawings in black and white. Original limp vellum. Pictorial endpapers in green and white. Top edge gilt, others uncut. A near fine, partially uncut copy. Housed in the original (slightly worn) slipcase with matching limitation number to spine.John Ruskin (1819?1900), ?English author and artist, whose The King of the Golden River might be regarded as the first English fairy story for children. Though it was not published until 1851, seven years after Francis Paget's The Hope of the Katzekopfs, it was in fact written in 1841 for 12-year-old Effie Gray, whom he later married. It is a story of the three brothers of tradition, two bad, the youngest good, and their reception of a supernatural visitor, the South West Wind. Ruskin described it himself as ?a fairly good imitation of Grimm and Dickens, mixed with some true Alpine feeling of my own?, but the South West Wind is a powerful and original character, described by Stephen Prickett [in Victorian Fantasy (1979)] as the ?first magical personage to show that combination of kindliness and eccentric irascibility that was to appear so strongly in a whole tradition of subsequent literature?. Richard Doyle, who illustrated the original edition, made a striking drawing of him. Edgar Taylor?s translation of the Grimms? stories with illustrations by George Cruikshank was published in 1823; in Praeterita Ruskin recorded how he had copied these when he was 10 or 11. The book was reissued in 1868 with an introduction by Ruskin in which he spoke of the value of the traditional tales, with their power ?to fortify children against the glacial cold of selfish science??a sentiment which lies at the heart of his own story? (The Oxford Companion to Fairy Tales).Latimore and Haskell, p. 67. Riall, p. 176.

        Quatorze Juillet [July 14] (Original photograph from the 1933 film)

      N.p.: N.p., 1932. Vintage single weight photograph of director René Clair in the midst of an outdoor shot with his cinematographer Georges Périnal on location for the 1933 film. A wonderful image, capturing Clair and Périnal as they set up the kind of shot that distinguished the director's work: viewing an intimate scene through a window from the street. This film, for which Clair wrote the screenplay, is a quintessential one for Clair, wherein a young cab driver and his flower girl neighbor fall in love in a world where all odds are against them. Georges Périnal was one of the great cinematographers in early French and European cinema, working with every major director of that time, and in particular with Clair. In addition to shooting all of Clair's major films in the 1930s, he also photographed Cocteau's "Blood of a Poet" (1932), William Cameron Menzies' "Things to Come" (1936), Michael Powell's "The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp" (1943), and Carol Reed's "The Fallen Idol" (1948). 9.5 x 8 inches (29 x 23 cm). In an archival mat. Fine.
