      Boston: Little, Brown & Co., 1932. First edition. Hardcover. First edition, stated. Very good or better in a very good unclipped dust jacket, with the jacket showing light edgewear, a 1/4 inch chip to the spine at crown, a chip to the lower rear jacket at the gutter, light soiling. Rear inner jacket flap clipped. A few small indentations to the lower right of the silver and black front boards, as opposed to the more common blue/light blue boards, which we believe indicates a prioirity. Lacking the very rare glassine over-jacket. This copy warmly and lengthily inscribed, signed and dated in the year and perhaps month of publication by Bel Geddes on the front pastedown. Underlining and marginalia in several sections, from which it can be surmised that the recipient of the inscription knew and/or worked with Bel Gedes on several theatrical productions. Laid in at rear is Bel Geddes obituary from the New York Times, with the corresponding oxidation marks on the rear pastedown. All in all a solid and very attractive copy of this profoundly influential title from the great designer. Uncommon in a condition of this high and order and very scarce indeed when signed-- as of the time of writing, we can not locate another signed copy.

        Bobed Hair, California [sic, Bobbed Hair]

      1932. Hardcover. Fine. Half brown cloth and morocco with gilt-stamped lettering on spine. Fine. Contains 21 grey heavy cardstock leaves, each with a tipped-on drawing (6-by-7-inches), colored by hand, usually in watercolor and pencil. Osborn holds forth, in 19 cartoons, on the subjects of hair and California. Also includes 2 more serious drawings, both concerned with landscape and the human figure. Early original cartoons by the noted caricaturist, cartoonist and satiric commentator, Robert Osborn, who died in 1994 at age 90. Educated at the University of Wisconsin and Yale University, where he was art editor of the Yale Record, Osborn studied painting in Rome and Paris before returning to teach art and philosophy at the Hotchkiss School in Lakeville, Connecticut. At the outbreak of World War II, he enlisted in the Navy with the hope of becoming an aviator. He was assigned to an information unit under the command of the photographer Edward Steichen. As a Navy officer, he learned the art of speed drawing, and over his military career produced some 40,000 drawings for training manuals -- many of them featuring a cartoon character named Dilbert, a blunderer who violated rules of military safety. In 1946, he achieved his first public recognition for "War Is No Damn Good," said to be the first antiwar book of the nuclear age. He went on to draw for Harper's, Fortune, Life, and Look, and became a regular contributor to The New Republic. Garry Trudeau, creator of the "Doonesbury" strip, called Mr. Osborn "one of the very few masters of illustrative cartooning."

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.

        Profile: An Anthology Collected in MCMXXXI

      Milan: John Scheiwiller, 1932. First Edition. An enormously important poetry anthology, one of only 250 copies, featuring many of the key Modernist writers of the period, including James Joyce, William Carlos Williams, W.B. Yeats, Marianne Moore, T.S. Eliot, e.e. cummings, Archibald MacLeish, Louis Zukofsky, Basil Bunting, Ford Madox Ford, and many others, with two groups of poems from the radical magazine, "New Masses." Ezra Pound, the editor of this collection, appears quite often. 8vo., 142 pages, in original green wrappers folded over stiff white blanks. A trace of foxing to the top edge and some light creasing of the wrappers, but a Near Fine copy. OCLC lists 6 copies, all in U.S. libraries. No other copies in the market as of February 2016. Gallup B28. RARE. Throughout this volume, Ezra Pound adds his personal comments about some of the poets and their works. He doesn't include any poems by Robert Frost, but instead makes this acid comment about Frost: "As a matter of history it should be stated that from 1912 Robert Frost had been producing New England Eclogues. Sincere, very dull, without tragedy, without emotion, without metrical interest, a faithful record of life without intellectual interest or any desire for anything not in it. The work, inferior to [George] Crabbe, but infinitely better than fake. A great deal of New England life is presumably as Frost records it. It is difficult to see how such life differs greatly from that of horses and sheep." (Page 46)

      Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott Company, 1932. First Edition. First Printing. Octavo; red cloth, with titles stamped in black on spine and front cover; dustjacket; 317pp, [3]. Fine in a Near Fine, unclipped dustjacket, with a single short tear at lower edge of the rear panel. A superb copy of the second Detective Stephen Harper mystery, a "yellow peril" novel set in New York City. The novel has everything going for it: death, dope, detection, and torture, all set in the streets of Chinatown. And for the record (we'll spare you the gory details), there's not a damned thing funny about dying 'the laughing death.' A terrific novel by a highly underrated Black Mask author.

Harold Hugo (1900-1985), or 'Al' as Brasher knew him, started work for Meriden Gravure Company, at 14. By the time he first met Brasher in the late 1920's he was a sales manager for the firm, and during World War II, he became general manager and in 1950 was named a director. He became president in 1969 before retiring in 1975. It is generally acknowledged that his greatest business achievement was to ensure that, under his leadership, the company won international renown for the quality of its work, but, perhaps his greatest individual business decision was to champion Rex Brasher's cause within his firm, a cause that was quickly taken up by company's president, Parker Allen. The company went on to provide (at very favourable rates) the uncoloured gravures that Brasher needed to illustrate his masterwork The Birds and Trees of North America , self-published by Brasher between 1929 and 1932, with 867 plates and numerous other illustrations. Brasher's nephew wrote of this deal: "The compact with Merdiden Gravure officers was altogether heartwarming and inspiring. Here were business men - almost total strangers, indifferent to security of any kind, willing and anxious to help a white-haired man realize a dream. ... It was ... a tribute to Rex. It was a tribute to his work. There could be no other inference. Rex could not help feeling a great flooding surge of satisfaction and new confidence" (M.E. Brasher Rex Brasher Painter of Birds p. 269). The present unique work, warmly inscribed with a small caricature self-portrait by Rex, was evidently intended by him as a small thank you to the salesmanager who became a friend. The text seems to correspond to that found in volume 11 of Rex's larger work (on Warblers, Wagtails, Pipits, etc.): the text which accompanies plates numbered 663-669 includes a narrative with the same title. The illustrated titling to the upper wrapper includes a version of the head-piece vignette on the first page of the text but is probably especially produced for this work. In effect it is a unique off-print, prepared by Brasher for Hugo because he had said how much he admired Rex's lyrical essay on the Long Island shore.

        The Odyssey.

      New York: Oxford University Press, , 1932. Newly Translated into English Prose. Octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettered spine, gilt roundel on front cover, pale yellow top edge, others untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Mustard-coloured roundel on title page. Jacket spine faded, extremities of jacket rather tattered, spine of binding rolled and sunned at head and tail. First US edition, fifth impression. Presentation copy from Lawrence, inscribed on the blank before the title: "A. E. C. from TE Shaw, very regretfully leaving [descender of the 'y' forming an arrow pointing to:] Mount Batten. 25. iv. 33". A significant association copy: A. E. "Jock" Chambers (1896-1987) had been a naval rating on Q-ships during WWI and was a fellow airman with Lawrence in the RAF. He and Lawrence were close, Chambers visiting Clouds Hill on a number of occasions, and Lawrence let him use the place if he was not able to get there himself. There are six letters addressed to him in The Letters (1936), the tone of all of them warm and relaxed; more than once Lawrence recommends books (Melville's White Jacket, Carlyle's Sartor Resartus). Jeremy Wilson notes that in the RAF Lawrence "soon had favourites" among the younger servicemen. "Two in particular at Farnborough were A. E. Chambers and R. A. M. Guy. 'Jock' Chambers had an intelligent and enquiring mind which nowadays would undoubtedly have won him a place at university. Lawrence recognised his ability and encouraged him to educate himself through reading (Lawrence gave him a subscription to the London Library)" (Lawrence of Arabia, the Authorised Biography of T. E. Lawrence, 1989, pp. 702-03). To another of Lawrence's biographers Chambers referred to him as "my only real friend, the only one I've ever had. He was one of the finest men who've ever trod the globe, better than Christ or any of them. He hated injustice" (John E. Mack, A Prince of Our Disorder: the Life of T. E. Lawrence, 1998, p. 442). When Lawrence presented this copy of his translation of Homer to Chambers he was in his last days at RAF Mount Batten, near Plymouth, having written to Sir Philip Sassoon as early as January of 1933 that "Mount Batten is full of ghosts and sad". Following the publication of the first edition of 1932 (privately printed by Bruce Rogers in England in an edition of 530 copies) the American edition was the first to be issued as a trade edition and sold extremely well (the English trade edition followed in 1935). O'Brien notes that it "badly hurt" sales of the beautiful but expensive private press edition (published at 12 guineas).

      New York 1932 - The Central Asiatic Expedition under the auspices of the American Museum of Natural History went into Mongolia to seek and discover the ancestry of man, and to explore the natural history of the region. The leader, Andrews, conducted expeditions in 1922, 1923, 1925, 1928, and 1930, on an unprecedented scale, and secured observations, records, measurements, photographs and collections which constituted materials for the many scientific papers and twelve planned volumes of final reports. This book serves as an introduction to the scientific publications of the expedition, describing how the work was done. Sven Hedin so admired the plan of this work that he used it in his own "History of the Expedition in Asia". A near fine copy in original cloth. First edition pp.l, 678, 128 plates, 3 maps.
