On rear wraps of both volumes is stated "NOT TO BE INTRODUCED INTO THE BRITISH EMPIRE OR THE U.S.A," as the book was infamously banned from these two countries until 1934 and 1936.Volume 1 book condition: very good, with notable flaws being a crease on front wrap at bottom corner as well as a creas along spine. Also present is some wear at spine ends and general age toning. Along with the Shakespeare and Company sticker at the rear is a bookseller sticker from Books Inc. in San Francisco.Volume 2 book condition: very good, with a couple subtle stains on spine and with some light wear to spine ends and general age toning. Also a light strip of rubbing on front wrap. Very nice considering age and fragility.

        Mimeograph typescript, agreement between Katharine Hepburn and RKO Studios , Inc

      1932. 25 pages. "...employ[ing] the Artist to render to the Corporation her exclusive services as an actress, performer or entertainer in connection with the production of a feature length motion picture...[with] a salary of One Thousand Five Hundred Dollars ($1,500.00) per week..." with an option to employ Katharine Hepburn "...in connection with the production of two (2) additional feature length motion pictures...", annotations throughout, signed in black ink Katharine Hepburn, and DO Selznick; including two loose pages regarding her salary for "A Bill of Divorcement" with annotations in pencil, dated August 30, 1932, signed in black ink Katharine Hepburn and DO Selznick; together with a typescript copy bound in blue papers with annotations and two loose pages, both with secretarial signatures. Front and back cover very worn, and detached from mimeograph copy, tears and wear on front and back cover on typescript copy. First Contract With Rko Studios For "A Bill Of Divorcement," 1932 RKO had already cast John Barrymore as the father in "A Bill of Divorcement", but the studio was having trouble casting the role of the daughter. Miss Hepburn's agent, Leland Hayward, heard about the trouble and persuaded director George Cukor to watch her test. Cukor was very impressed and was able to convince David Selznick to see it as well. Selznick was equally astounded. In her book, Katharine Hepburn: A Remarkable Woman, author Anne Edwards quotes a conversation between Selznick and screenwriter Adela Rogers St. John: "She's too marvelous...she'll be greater than Garbo. Nobody wants her but me so come and help me fight for her..." (p.79). In July of 1932, Miss Hepburn and her close friend Laura Harding took the train from New York to California, calling it their "Hollywood Adventure." Edwards writes of Miss Hepburn's arrival to the RKO lot: "Adela Rogers St. John recalled, 'As long as I live I will never forget the first day she appeared on the lot. Everybody was in the commissary at lunch when she walked in with Mr. Cukor. Several executives nearly fainted. Mr. Selznick swallowed a chicken wing whole. We beheld a tall, skinny girl entirely covered with freckles and wearing the most appalling and incredible clothes...' "(p.85-86). As always, Miss Hepburn made an entrance with a lasting impression.

        Death in the Afternoon

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons 1932 - First edition, first printing. Original publisher's cloth, lettered in gilt. Presentation copy signed and inscribed by Hemingway to close friend, Guy Hickock: "To Guy, or Monsieur Tripas, / with much affection, / Ernest". Some light rubbing to the extremities and some stains to the rear cover, else very good. Guy Hickock was an American journalist who began working for the Brooklyn Eagle in 1914, then a major publication. After World War I, Hickock moved to France, where he opened up a Paris bureau for the Eagle in 1918. The Paris center also served as a travel hub for Americans in Paris, which is likely where Hickock met Ernest Hemingway. Despite Hickock being over a decade Hemingway's senior, the two were close friends in the 1920's, with Hickock assisting Hemingway as he worked in Paris and traveled abroad. In 1927, the two traveled together to Italy, a trip which would become the basis for Hemingway's short story "Che Ti Dice La Patria?" as well as an inspiration for Hickock's own journal articles. The Hemingway Review 25. Death in the Afternoon is Hemingway's non-fiction book about the sport of bull-fighting, which ranges from technical descriptions of the art of the sport to philosophical conjectures about people who are interested in or partake in bull-fighting. Hemingway first became interested in bull-fighting after attending the Festival of San Fermínin in Pamplona, Spain in 1923, and became a lifelong aficionado. This technical text is enlivened by Hemingway's clear passion for the sport and keen understanding of its nuances. Although Death in the Afternoon is the author's first full book-length non-fiction piece, Hemingway's love for bull-fighting can also be seen in his 1926 novel The Sun Also Rises.

        Manuscript Signed of his lecture, "William Blake; Painter, Poet, Seer." Fair copy, in the hand of Binyon's wife, Cicily*

      [Possibly Cambridge, Mass, 1932. Written in ink on rectos of 19 numbered sheets; approximately 5000 words; docketed in pencil on the first page in an unknown hand "Complete Ms. 1944". 1 vols. 10 x 8 inches. In fine condition, contained in a gray cloth slipcase with green gilt leather label, and inner wrapper; with the bookplate of Kenneth A. Loft. Autograph Manuscript by Laurence Binyon on William Blake Laurence Binyon (1869-1943), poet, writer, art critic and historian, was, through his articles and books, an early popularizer of Blake's work. This essay, typical of the writings and introductions by him which adorned various scholarly studies, is an eloquent recapitulation of Blake's fiery genius, seen through the eyes of a sympathetic fellow poet, who notes that not everyone is as pro-Blake as he: "Quite recently Mr. William Watson has been telling us that [Blake's] poems are absurdly over-rated. To Mr. Yeats, on the other hand, he is a greater poet than Keats. His art attracts some minds as powerfully as it repels others." To Binyon, although Blake produced lyrical and artistic masterpieces, "[he] means to us not the contemplation of masterpieces so much as contact with a soul of elemental purity & ardour...in his spirit there seems born anew one of those makers of mythology & religion who shaped & coloured the thoughts of the human race thousands of years ago." That Blake has become more universally appreciated as the years go by is to a degree the result of such evaluations as this one, beautifully written out in the elegant hand of Binyon's wife, Cicily, and luminous with his insight and conviction. As far as we can determine, the essay is unpublished. Most probably it was prepared as a lecture during Binyon's stay in America as Charles Eliot Norton Professor, 1932-33. According to John Hatcher in his biography (p. 267) "Apart from his Norton lectures, he gave lectures and talks on almost every subject in his repertoire, including Blake as poet, painter and seer ... " (exactly the title of this piece). Hatcher goes on to say that Binyon delivered his lectures and poetry readings not only in the Boston/Cambridge area, but in New York, Philadelphia, Washington, Chicago, Cleveland, Yale, Princeton, and Vassar ..." *Handwriting identified with the courteous assistance of Edmund Gray, grandson of the poet.

        Nemenikuce cirilo i metodije.

      Belgrad, Nadrealisticka Izdanja, 1932.. 33 S., 1 Bl. 4°, Orig.-Broschur.. Die Einbandränder etwas knickspurig, leicht randgebleicht, am unteren Rücken sehr leicht eingerissen (ev. 0,1 cm), der Hinterdeckel mit einer kleinen Klebrestspur (Durchmesser ca. 1 cm), ein kleiner Braunfleck (Durchmesser ca. 0,2 cm), etwas berieben. Innen unaufgeschnitten. - In einer kleinen Auflage erschienen! Das erste Gedicht wurde Popovic, das 2. Ristic gewidmet! - Edition originale tiree a petit nombre. Le premier poeme est dedie a Popovic, le second a Ristic. Tres rare. - Der serbische Surrealismus entstand fast zeitgleich mit dem französischen und orientierte sich früh an der französischen Literatur. Ristic, die zentrale Persönlichkeit im serbischen Surrealismus, hatte 1919 die französische Zeitschrift "Litterature" abonniert. Die jungen serbischen Dichter lasen die Werke von Apollinaire, Eluard etc. und waren durch ihr Exil während des Ersten Weltkrieges, das sie mehrheitlch im verbündeten Frankreich verbrachten, stark von der französischen Moderne beeinflußt. Ristic lernte schon 1923, im Jahr vor der Publikation des ersten surrealistischen Manifestes, Breton kennen. Hieraus erwuchs eine intensive Zusammenarbeit zwischen serbischen und französischen Surrealisten, das mit dem Erscheinen des Almanachs "Nemoguce-L'impossible" (Das Unmögliche) im Jahr 1930 seinen Höhepunkt erfuhr. Heute wird der Serbische Surrealismus nur noch wenig wahrgenommen, was wohl auch mit dem Zerwürfnis zwischen Ristic und Breton liegen mag und Breton die Gruppe um Ristic in seinen Vorträgen nicht erwähnte. (Vgl. Milanka Todic, The impossible. Surrealist art, Ausst.-Kat. Belgrader Kunstgewerbemuseum, Belgrad 2002, S. 163-214 u. 256-272; Holger Siegel, In unseren Seelen flattern schwarze Fahnen, Serbische Avantgarde 1918-1939, Leipzig 1992, S. 269-280; Branko Aleksic, Der serbische Surrealismus, in: Europa, Europa, Bd. 2, S. 80f.). - Aleksandar Vuco (1897 - 1985), etait un poete et un romancier serbe appartenant au mouvement surrealiste. Le prix NIN du meilleur roman lui a ete attribue en 1957 pour Mrtve javke.

        I am a Fugitive from a Georgia Chain Gang!

      New York: Vanguard Press, 1932. First Edition. The author's first book, originally issued as a six-part serial in the pages of True Detective Mysteries in 1931, and picked up by Vanguard the following year. A slightly fictionalized but largely autobiographical account, written while in hiding, of the author's adventures with the Georgia penal system, beginning with his arrest for stealing $5.80 from an Atlanta grocer in 1922. Burns's intent was to expose the brutality and corruption of the chain gang system, and he succeeded; the book created an instant furor upon publication and became a bestseller for Vanguard. It served as the basis for the Mervyn LeRoy film released later the same year, starring Paul Muni in the role of Burns. The film heralded a new genre - the prison drama - and won three Oscars including a Best Actor Award for Muni. Copies in dustjacket are rare, this being only the second jacketed copy we have handled. SUVAK 38. Octavo (21cm); light gray cloth, with titling and decorations stamped in blue on spine and front panel; blue topstain; dustjacket; 257pp. Bookplate to front pastedown, faint mustiness, with light offset and some scattered foxing to endpapers; Near Fine. Dustjacket is unclipped (priced $2.00), lightly dusty overall, with light toning and a few shallow nicks and tears to extremities, and scattered foxing to spine panel; Very Good to Very Good+.

Veröffentlicht im Simplicissimus, Stuttgart 29.Mai 1932, 27. Jahrgang Nummer 9, Seite 107 (siehe Online-Dokumentation zum Simplicissimus www.simplicissimus.info). Mit Sammlerstempel Ad. Deutelmoser, auf der Rückseite der Tuschezeichnung. Rest eines Klebers am oberen Rand der Tuschezeichnung, beide Blätter etwas gebräunt, die Tuschezeichnung verso lichtrandig, auf Whatman Büttenpapier, beide mit leichteren Knickspuren. - Karl Maximilian Arnold (geb. am 1. April 1883 in Neustadt bei Coburg - gest. am 29. November 1953 in München), Zeichner des Simplicissimus, hatte 1932 schon vorhergesehen wie es mit der Hitlerbande weitergehen würde und zog den Vergleich zu Salome's Einforderung des Kopfes Johannes des Täufers. Die Zeichnung zeigt die nackte Salome mit dem Kopf Hitlers, die den von einem SA-Mann auf einem Tablett servierten Kopf (eines dem damalig optischen antisemitischen Stereotypen eines Juden) streichelt. Rechts im Vordergrund Hitler als trommelnde Puppe, links Hitlers Konterfei auf einer Säule (Der bekannte Soldat) mit 2 kleinwüchsigen Betrachtern. - "Als die Nationalsozialisten 1933 wider Erwarten den Simplicissimus, trotz dessen scharfer Kritik an Hitler in den Jahren zuvor, nicht verboten, sondern fortführten, konnte auch Arnold weiter dort publizieren. Die Mitarbeiter des Simpl hatten sich 1933 förmlich unterworfen. Er selbst räumte ein, dass er zum Widerständler nicht eigne, und lavierte sich durch" (Quelle Wikipedia). Zum Thema Arnold, Simplicissimus und die Nazis erschien in der FAZ ein interessanter Artikel von Andreas Rossmann mit dem Titel: Wie kommt Hitlers Kopf auf die nackte Frau? (www.faz.net/aktuell/feuilleton/kunst/karikaturist-karl-arnold-wie-kommt-hitlers-kopf-auf-die-nackte-frau-11024830-p2.html). - Nicht signiert. Nach dem Eignerstempel Ad. Deutelmoser könnte diese Tuschemalerei im Restaurant Osteria Bavaria gehangen haben, ob Ad. Deutelmoser ein Verwandter vom Besitzer Josef Deutelmoser war, können wir nicht nachweisen. In der Linienführung und in einigen Details unterscheidet sich unsere Zeichnung in einigen Details vom Original.

        The ÒPop-upÓ Pinocchio with Òpop-upÓ Illustrations in color by Harold Lentz

      New York: Blue Ribbon Books, Inc., [1932]. 8vo, 96 pp. 4 color double-page pop-up illustrations, in perfect working order, and many line drawings throughout the text, color illustrated endpapers. Original pictorial boards, text printed on heavy stock, a brilliant copy in virtually perfect condition in the original dust-jacket. First edition of this uncommon pop-up book very rarely found in this condition. Each story is illustrated with a priceless pop-up in perfect working condition. Harer, ?'Merry Company: Pop ups, Movables, & Toy Books?", notes: The Pop-up Pinocchio may have been the finest American pop-up to come from Blue Ribbon Press, certainly finer than any of the British Bookanos... it had superior graphics, it was composed of high quality materials and the design and color printing were exemplary... Pinocchio topped the bestseller lists in 1932?". Harer doesnÕt mention the ?'Cinderella?" from the same publisher which is as good if not better than Pinocchio.

        The Silver Horn and Other Sporting Tales of John Weatherford

      New York: The Derrydale Press, 1932. First Edition, one of 950 copies. With 6 drawings by J. Alden Twachtman. WITH FINE FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF A RACE OVER TIMBER, SIGNED BY F.R. CROSS. 1 vols. 8vo. Original red boards, gilt spine. THE ONLY COPY WE HAVE EVER SEEN WITH ALL EDGES GILT. This must be a unique copy, but done by the original edition binders because the pastedown and endpapers are the same as the regular edition. Bookplate. Laid into quarter crimson morocco slipcase and chemise. CROSS, F.R. CROSS, F.R. First Edition, one of 950 copies. With 6 drawings by J. Alden Twachtman. WITH FINE FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF A RACE OVER TIMBER, SIGNED BY F.R. CROSS. 1 vols. 8vo. WITH SIGNED FORE-EDGE PAINTING UNDER GILT EDGES. One of the most successful Derrydale titles, and, though a collection of stories, a leading candidate for The Great American Sporting Novel. We know of no other Derrydale book with fore-edge painting; it was possibly done at the behest of Eugene V. Connett, III, the proprietor of the Press, perhaps as a gift. The painting appears to illustrate the climatic racing scene from the story "Enid Ashley's Knight Errant", which appears in the book. UNIQUE.
