        [Original Photo Album from Animation Productions]

      np, [ca. 1932]. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine. Oblong 4to. Original screw-bound linen boards. With Pal's bookplate to front free end-paper and his ownership stamp to inside front and back covers. Containing 68 original B&W photos adhesive-mounted rectos only to 39 leaves plus some related scrap. Apparently complete. Binding lacking one screw. Else fine. Academy Award-winning animator, producer, and director George Pal emigrated from his native Hungary in 1939 and went on to a successful and innovative Hollywood career. He is perhaps best remembered as the producer of several science fiction and fantasy films in the 1950s, including WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE and THE WAR OF THE WORLDS (1953). He himself directed TOM THUMB (1958), THE TIME MACHINE (1960) and THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF THE BROTHERS GRIMM (1962). But before his emigration, he had a varied and successful career in Europe, where he developed the "Puppetoon" method. “Puppetoons” are a form of replacement animation in which a series of different hand-carved wooden puppets (or puppet parts) are substituted in each frame, rather than manipulating a single puppet, as in most stop-motion animation. It was for this technique he won an honorary Oscar in 1943 and these intricate, time consuming techniques are on prominent display here. The majority of the photographs appear to be production images and action stills from MIDNIGHT (1932), an early Pal advertising effort featuring dancing cigarettes, widely recognized as the first Puppetoon animation. A photograph titled “Heiraten und nicht verzweifeln” (“Spouses do not despair.”) precedes 16 photos of a different (though likely equally as early) household cleaning product film. Eight German press clippings on Pal and his methods additionally mounted to the final 6 leaves. A rich and handsome album, documenting at least several commercial animation projects undertaken by Pal before his emigration to the US, and likely produced for showcasing PalÂ’s early advertising shorts to perspective clients. Overall, an exceptional record of animation history and production.

        Sur la nature du rayonnement pénétrant excité dans les noyaux légers par les particules alpha

      1932. Joliot, Frédéric (1900-1958) & Joliot-Curie, Ir?ne (1897-1956). Sur la nature du rayonnement pénétrant excité dans les noyaux légers par les particules alpha. Offprint from C. r. des séances de l?Acad. d. Sci. (April 11, 1932). 8vo. 3, [1]pp. 243 x 161 mm. Original printed wrappers, somewhat faded. Moderate browning, otherwise very good. First Separate Edition. In 1931, Ir?ne Joliot-Curie, daughter of Pierre and Marie Curie, and her husband Frédéric Joliot began four years of intensive collaborative research on radioactivity that culminated in their discovery of artificial radioactivity. In November 1935 the couple were awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry for their synthesis of new radioactive elements; they are thus numbered among the small group of outstanding physicists (including Marie Curie) who have received Nobel awards in chemistry (see Weber, Pioneers of Science, p. 4). The present paper is one of several originating from the first experiments that the Joliot-Curies carried out during this period, which focused on the penetrating radiation (known as Bothe-Becker radiation) emanating from beryllium, boron and certain other light elements when bombarded with alpha rays. During the course of these experiments, the Joliot-Curies made an important discovery: interposing a plate of hydrogen-containing material between the radiation source and the ionization chamber caused a large increase in the current. ?It appeared that this radiation, produced only in hydrogen-containing substances, consisted of protons ejected by the penetrating Bothe-Becker radiation? (DSB). The Joliot-Curies first announced their discovery in a paper presented in January 1932; the present paper, published three months later, describes further progress in their investigations. The Joliot-Curie?s work in this field led directly to James Chadwick?s discovery of the neutron in February 1932.

        Im Schatten der roten Fahne. mästet sich eine neue Bourgeoisie (In the shadow of the red flag. a new bourgeoisie fattens)

      Franz Eher Nachfolger GmbH, München 1932 - Folio. Unpaginated. [4]pp. Original photo-illustrated wrappers, with photomontage on both covers. Scarce National-Socialist election pamphlet published around October/November 1932 for the German Federal elections that were held on 6 November 1932*. This pamphlet accuses the German Communist Party (K. P. D.) to steal from and betray the working class and urges the workers to leave the K. P. D. and join the Nazis. It also draws a nightmarish portrait of the Soviet Union, the "worker's paradise," as it depicts Soviet women demonstrating while their children are dying of hunger, the social betrayal in the Soviet Union (with the emergence of a communist bourgeoisie), the mass murders, the torture, and the hopeless poverty of the entire population. Closed tears and minor chipping along fore-edge. Folding mark at center. Text in German. Pamphlet in overall good- to good condition. * The 1932 German Federal elections saw a significant drop for the Nazi Party and increases for the Communists and the national conservative DNVP. It was the last free and fair all-German election before the Nazi Machtergreifung on 30 January 1933, as the following elections of March 1933 were already accompanied by massive suppression, especially against Communist and Social Democratic politicians. The next free election was not held until August 1949 in West Germany; the next free all-German elections took place in December 1990 after reunification. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Light and life. Address delivered at the opening meeting of the International Congress on Light Therapy in Copenhagen 15. August 1932.

      Copenhagen: IIe Congrès International de la Lumière, 1932. First edition of this famous lecture, which marks Bohr's first detailed attempt to apply concepts arising from quantum mechanics (particularly complementarity) to areas outside physics. "Here, for the first time, Bohr raised a question that was to preoccupy him, off and on, until his death: Would it ever be possible to push the analysis of living processes to the limit where they can be described in terms of pure physics and chemistry?" (Pais, p. 441). Bohr's lecture can be viewed as one of the foundation stones of molecular biology in that it inspired the young physicist Max Delbrück--who was in the audience when Bohr delivered it--to switch from physics to biology. "It is fair to say that with Max, Bohr found his most influential philosophical disciple outside the domain of physics, in that through Max, Bohr provided one of the intellectual fountainheads for the development of 20th century biology" (quoted in Pais, p. 442). This pamphlet, dated 1932, apparently predates both the lecture's publication in Danish in Naturens Verden, in English in Nature, and in German in Naturwissenschaften, all of which were published in 1933. "Bohr had a life-long interest in philosophy, publishing three volumes of philosophical essays. He was also the son of the distinguished physiologist Christian Bohr, a student of Carl Ludwig, who discovered the cooperative binding of oxygen to hemoglobin. It is therefore not entirely surprising that, when he was asked to give a lecture at the International Congress of Light Therapists in Copenhagen in August 1932, Niels Bohr chose to speak on the philosophy of biology. His lecture, the text of which was subsequently published in Nature, was entitled 'Light and Life'. "In 'Light and Life,' Bohr noted that one of the fundamental tenets of quantum mechanics was the principle of complementarity. This stated that although it is possible to determine the location or the velocity of a subatomic particle such as an electron, it is not possible to determine both, because the act of measurement itself perturbs the system. Techniques that analyzed the position of an electron altered its velocity; techniques that measured the velocity altered the position. Location and velocity are therefore complementary properties of the electron. Not complementary in the ordinary sense of adding together to make a whole, but rather mutually exclusive, as these properties can only be measured in different frames of reference. "Bohr saw an analogy between physicists' attempts to characterize the atom and biologists' attempt to characterize the cell. Living cells were, to be sure, made of ordinary matter, and therefore amenable to chemical analysis, but the matter was organized in a complex and particular way. To study the chemistry, the organization had to be destroyed; to study the organization, one has to operate at a level at which the chemistry is invisible. Bohr therefore proposed that the chemical basis of an organism and its organizational hierarchy are complementary properties, just as velocity and location are complementary properties of an electron. "In stating that the unique characteristic of living systems was their organization or (in another passage) their teleological (functionally adapted) properties, Bohr was careful to avoid the implication that he was reviving the old vitalist doctrine that different physical laws operate in living organisms: 'I think we all agree with Newton that the real basis of science is the conviction that Nature under the same conditions will always exhibit the same regularities. If we were able to push the analysis of the mechanism of living organisms as far as that of atomic phenomena, we should scarcely expect to find any features differing from the properties of inorganic matter.' "As a result of the 'Light and Life' talk, a young theoretical physicist sitting in the audience was influenced to become a biologist. According to the Bohr biographer Abraham Pais, his role in turning Max Delbrück into a biologist was Niels Bohr's 'greatest contribution to biology'" (Hunter, pp. 217-8). "Delbrück was German, born to the aristocracy of the intellect -- his father was the professor of history and his uncle the professor of theology in the University of Berlin -- and trained as a quantum physicist. His mind and style had been formed by Niels Bohr, the physicist, philosopher, poet, and incessant Socratic questioner who made Copenhagen one of the capital cities of science between the wars. Delbruck's ideas about the physical properties of the gene, in a youthful paper of 1935, had led Schrödinger to write What is Life? Delbrück was perhaps the earliest of the theoretical physicists who have crossed over to biology; Szilard, Crick, Maurice Wilkins were others, while Linus Pauling, arriving at biology from a different tangent, was a physical chemist whose strength was founded in quantum mechanics. The move from physics has been the intellectual immigration that has mattered most to biology" (Judson, p. 50). Delbrück became a leader of what was known as the "phage group" of bacterial geneticists; in 1969, he received a share of the Nobel Prize for physiology / medicine for describing the means by which living cells are infected with viruses. G. K. Hunter, Vital Forces: The Discovery of the Molecular Basis of Life, 2000; H. F. Judson, The Eighth Day of Creation, 1979; A. Pais, Niels Bohr's Times, 1991. 4to (236 x 158 mm), pp 10, original printed wrappers, a virtually mint copy. Rare.

        THE REVELATION OF SAINT JOHN THE DIVINE

      Montgomeryshire, Wales: Gregynog Press, 1932. No. 51 OF 250 COPIES n. Hardcover. 347 x 205 mm (13 5/8 x 8 1/8"). [30] leaves. No. 51 OF 250 COPIES. Publisher's deep red Hermitage calf over bevelled boards, top edge sprinkled. Housed in a (somewhat worn) later quarter leather slipcase. 41 STRIKING WOOD-ENGRAVED ILLUSTRATIONS BY BLAIR HUGHES-STANTON, 13 of them full-page. Text printed in red and black. The first three words on the title page wood engraved. Front pastedown with the morocco bookplate of Neva and Guy Littell. Harrop 24. Spine mildly faded, a few minor shallow grazes to leather, otherwise a very fine copy, the binding lustrous and showing little use, and the text and plates especially fresh and clean. During a short space of time, from 1931-34, Hughes-Stanton (1902-81) produced woodcuts for six memorable books issued by the Gregynog Press, and this is probably the most memorable of those. The illustrations were praised by the "Observer" for "savage dexterity" and an "ardent imagination," at the same time they were damned by the "London Mercury" as liable to "offend many of those who treasure the tradition of Christian iconography." The engravings, which placed special demands on Gregynog pressmen, have a delicacy and fineness of line that was at once revolutionary and breathtaking. And although Gill is the more readily recognized of these two central figures in the English wood engraving revival, he never approached Hughes-Stanton in terms of intricacy. The Gregynog Press was founded by two unmarried sisters, Gwendoline (1882-1951) and Margaret (1884-1963) Davies, who inherited the remarkable sum of £500,000 each from their industrialist grandfather. In 1922, they moved to Gregynog Hall near Newtown, Wales, and set out to establish a center for the arts. With the help of Robert Ashwin Maynard, they founded the Gregynog Press, which produced 42 works between 1923 and 1942, eight of them in Welsh. Cave says that the books printed by the Gregynog Press "more than bear comparison with the work of any other private press," and "in the design and execution of bindings, the Gregynog Press was far superior to any, the Doves Press included." The various projects sponsored by the Davies sisters ended with World War II, but the women left a lasting artistic legacy to their native land: their fabulous collection of French Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings went to the National Museum in Cardiff, and Gregynog Hall was given to the University of Wales, which resumed publishing works under the imprint "Gwasg Gregynog" in 1978. Former owner Guy Littell was the president of R. R. Donnelley and Sons.

        The Golden Bough

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1932?-36. A Study in Magic and Religion. Third Edition. 12 volumes, octavo. Original slate green cloth, gilt lettered spines, large decorative gilt block of mistletoe on front covers, top edges gilt. With the dust jackets. Ownership stamps on front endpapers of T. W. Latchmore, a photographer based in Hitchin, Hertfordshire (remembered for "photographing" the "Minsden Ghost" in 1907), and friend of the historian Reginald L. Hine. Jacket spines toned (and numbered by hand), a few nicks and chips, spines rolled or cocked, a few indentations to top edge of volumes I and 5, fore-edges foxed. A very good set, uncommon in the dust jackets. The definitive third edition of Frazer's classic work of social anthropology, expanded from its original two volumes to twelve; a supplementary thirteenth volume, entitled Aftermath, was published in 1937. "Frazer's true subject is nothing less than humanity's long upward struggle towards an understanding of itself and the world. In Frazer's view that movement towards the light began in earliest times with the priest?-king employing magic to compel the gods to do his bidding, followed by a religious stage in which humans admit their powerlessness and now beseech rather than command the gods. Thus for Frazer religion is a necessary stage in mental evolution, but one that is based on mistaken premisses; it has now in turn been superseded by a world-view based on rationality: positive science. In focusing on the pattern of the dying and reviving god that lay at the heart of the religions of the ancient Mediterranean, while never mentioning Christianity, Frazer was more than a little disingenuous. In truth he was engaged all the while in a covert campaign against religion in general and Christianity in particular and may perhaps be seen, along with H. G. Wells, as the most important exponent of secularism in the twentieth century" (ODNB).

Issue no. 22 with original (somewhat chipped, but intact) yellow paper band reading "Revolutionary Romanticism"; Issue no. 25 with ink inscription "Wallace Liggett / April 18, 1946" on rear cover; Issue no. 26 with ink stamp of Messageries Dawson, Paris, on rear cover. Slocum & Cahoon, C-70, C-82, C-83. A few tiny chips to edge of boards, a little light soiling, No. 26 with short scratch and pencilled number on front cover, No. 25 with occasional small, faint stains to fore edge, a few (inevitable) corner creases, otherwise in fine condition, quite clean, fresh, and bright internally in very well-preserved paper wrappers. These are four important issues from Transition, a significant literary platform of modernist literature and art edited by the poet Eugene Jolas, containing excerpts from what would become "Finnegans Wake" under the title "Work in Progress." There were 27 issues published between 1927 and 1938, with contributions from leading writers and artists of the Surrealist, Dada, and Modernist schools. Issue No. 21, subtitled "An International Workshop for Orphic Creation," contains an Homage to James Joyce for his fiftieth birthday, with contributions from Samuel Beckett and Stuart Gilbert, an excerpt from "Anna Livia Plurabelle" in "basic English," and a photograph of a page of manuscript from "Work in Progress"; "Poetry is Vertical," Jolas' manifesto on writing; and the first appearance of Samuel Beckett's "Sedendo et Quiesciendo." No. 22 contains an excerpt from "Work in Progress"; the "Vertigral Documents"; "Laboratory of the Mystic Logos"; "Transition's Revolution of the Word Dictionary," featuring neologisms from Joyce and others; and a bibliography of the first 22 issues. No. 25 features a cover designed by Joan Miró; reproductions of works by Mondrian, Domela, Brancusi, Klee, Matisse, Moholy-Nagy, and Cartier-Bresson; Dylan Thomas' poem "The Mouse and the Woman"; "Dada Diary (1916-1936)"; and "Painting and Reality" with a discussion among Louis Aragon, Fernand Léger et Le Corbusier. The penultimate issue of the magazine, No. 26 is especially sought after for Marcel Duchamp's cover featuring a silver comb, which Joyce joked to Sylvia Beach was the one used to comb out "Work in Progress." It also contains an excerpt from that work, as well as poetry by James Agee and Muriel Rukeyser; photography by Man Ray, Brassai, and Weston; and a song by Aaron Copland. All are in surprisingly fine condition.

        Tight Lines (Author's own copy, inscribed for his close friend and with an original ink sketch laid in)

      Tight Lines Publishers, Los Angeles 1932 - The author's own copy of his popular work on big game fishing. "Author's copy" written by Bandini on the limitation page. Inscribed beneath his frontis-portrait: "Margaret - But for your faith this work would never have been born - therefore whatever merit it possesses belongs to you. Affectionately Ralph Bandini." Inscribed for Margaret Stevenson who started at RKO as a typist and became involved with Bandini for a number of years. She assisted the author by typing his manuscripts, organizing his submissions and other secretarial work. Laid in to this copy is an original pen and ink drawing by Bandini of what looks like a bluefin tuna diving into the water. The book is bound in the original leather wrap-around covers, which have become brittle and cracked along the spine, although still holding. Top edge gilt, the others uncut. The front pictorial map end paper is nearly detached, some cracking within the text block, but otherwise a fairly tidy example. This copy has never before been offered for sale, having stayed in the family until now. Safe to say, this would easily be the crown jewel of a Bandini collection or a cornerstone of an angling collection.Ralph Bandini's "Tight Lines" vividly describes the world of big game fishing within southwestern California. A Pasadena native educated at Stanford University, Bandini pursued a career as an attorney (an O'Melveny alumn, like this cataloguer), turning later in life to building an enduring legacy within the sport of big game fishing. Within the span of seven years, Bandini composed the novels "Tight Lines" (1932), "Men, Fish, and Tackle" (1936), and "Veiled Horizons" (1939), as a personal introspection on game fishing and conservation in California. "Tight Lines" was heavily influenced by the Bandini family history in southern California and was composed with intricately detailed geography and personal experiences. In 1999, thirty-eight years after his death, Bandini was justly inducted into the International Game Fishing Association Hall of Fame. Good. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Some foxing to fore-edges, otherwise near fine and largely unopened, in very good, lightly smudged and used dust jacket. First edition, UK issue (one of ca. 1500 copies thus). Inscribed on the front free endsheet: "Siegfried Sassoon from Edith Sitwell." Sassoon and Edith Sitwell connected as early as 1917, when through Robert Ross, she wrote to him at Craiglockhart to commend him on his anti-war statement. There ensued a long acquaintance, made difficult by Sassoon's animosity toward Osbert. In 1930, she wrote him in the wake of a lapse in their friendship: "...you were one of my most intimate friends, and I have missed you more than I can say...." The following year she dedicated JANE BARSTON, one of her poems in the original Ariel Poems series, to him. The posthumous library dispersal monogram label appears on the pastedown. Surprisingly uncommon in decent condition these days, wholly apart from the particular association value of this copy. FIFOOT EA24A.

        Interpretation of the Atom

      1932. Signed. SODDY, Frederick.The Interpretation of the Atom.London: John Murray, (1932).First and only edition, presentation copy, of Frederick Soddy?'s second book on physics and radioactivity, with two folding tables and dozens of half-tones, inscribed on a tipped-in slip: ?"J. Joly Esq. F.R.S., Somerset House, Temple Road, Dublin. Thanks for the use of illustrations. FS. October 1932.?"The Interpretation of the Atom, Soddy?'s second book, is an analysis of the rapid developments in radioactivity and atomic theory in the early decades of the 20th century. A pioneer in atomic theory, Soddy was Rutherford?'s collaborator in, among other things, the crucial alpha-ray experiments that led to their revolutionary disintegration theory of radioactivity. Together, ?"they showed how the radioactive element thorium decayed at a fixed rate over time into a series of other elements… [which] led to the concept of ?'half life?" (Simmons, The Scientific 100 19). As a result of their experiments in radioactivity, Soddy independently became the first to recognize that chemically identical atoms of different atomic weights were all varieties of the same atom, leading him to coin the term ?"isotope?" (Jenkins-Jones, 446). In 1921, he was awarded the Nobel Prize ?"for his contributions to the knowledge of the chemistry of radioactive substances and his investigations on the occurrence and nature of isotopes?" (Callum & Taylor, 143).Slight foxing to half title and scattered mottling to original cloth. Light edge-wear and minor sunning to rear panel of scarce original dust jacket. A near-fine inscribed copy with an outstanding association.

La revue était reprit après la guerre avec le 8e année. - "La Revue Juive de de Genève relève de l'histoire spirituelle du judaïsme, mais elle a aussi sa place dans une histoire de la lutte contre l'antisémitisme ou de l'exil. Fondée par le philosophe et journaliste Josué Jéhouda dans le but de propager l'unité du peuple juif depuis Genève, berceau de la Société des Nations, cette riche revue menuselle parut de 1932 à 1948, à, l'exeption des années de guerre. Elle trouvait son inspiration chez le romancier Albert Cohen, éditeur de la Revue Juive publiée à Paris, et chez le poète André Spire. Elle participait à la lutte contre l'antisémitisme en préconisant avec force un universalisme idéaliste, basé sur la défense spirituelle et culturelle des valeurs juives. Jéhouda tenta de réconcilier la conception individuelle et sociale de la morale au sens que lui avait notamment donné le philosophe Henri Bergson et la relativisation moderne de toutes les valeurs, en définissant le judaïsme comme une entité à la fois religieuse et temporelle. Les personnalités qui s'exprimèrent dans cette revue au service de la défense spirituelle contre l'antisémitisme venaient de tous les horizons géographiques et culturels; parmi elles, Edmond Fleg, Alexandre Hérenger, Max Brod, Lion Feuchtwanger, Hugo Bergmann ou Jakob Klatzkin, mais aussi la direction politique du Congrès juif mondial."

        Autograph musical quotation signed "Karol Szymanowski" from his Symphonie concertante (Symphony No. 4, Op. 60)

      - The Symphonie Concertante, for solo piano and orchestra, was premiered in Pozna on October 9, 1932, with the composer at the piano. Although he dedicated it to the great pianist Anton Rubinstein, Szymanowski intended to perform the piece himself, on as many stages as possible, to earn money. He therefore "shaped the solo part with a view to his own performance capabilities, adjusting it to his hand; hence, the work is very different from the typical 'pianism' of contemporary concertos – those by Maurice Ravel or Prokofiev. In order to add brilliance, somewhat lacking in the piano part, Szymanowski increased the role of the orchestra, in a colourful and impressive style. so that the soloists’ figures are constantly being supplemented and "ornamented" by the picturesque and brilliant timbres of the symphonic ensemble, to a degree which goes beyond the usual convention of the concerto form and the idea of a dialogue." "Symphonie concertante for piano and orchestra op. 60." karolszymanowski.pl.Szymanowski, a noted Polish pianist and composer, was much influenced by the music of his countryman Chopin, Polish folk music, and a number of other composers including Strauss, Debussy and Ravel. Notated on a partial album leaf, ca. 73 x 149 mm. Signed and dated London, October 29, 1934 in dark blue ink.Two measures on one staff with treble clef, 3/4 time signature, and a key signature of one flat. Autograph titling ("Symphonie Concertante") to upper margin. With the autograph signature of noted German soprano Ria Ginster (1898-1985) in black ink to verso.Slightly worn and soiled; verso with minor wear, brief annotation in pencil, and remnants of transparent tape to margins.

        Sino-Japanese Disturbances

      Shanghai, 1932. Two maps and 48 pp of photographic illustrations. Captions in English and Japanese. Printed on one side only. Oblong 4to. Faux leather, with replaced ties, creased. Very good. Two maps and 48 pp of photographic illustrations. Captions in English and Japanese. Printed on one side only. Oblong 4to. An early salvo in what would characterise Sino-Japanese relations in the 1930s. This publication commemorates the First Battle of Shanghai, which was the culmination of incidents beginning with the Mukden Incident the previous year where China instituted a boycott of Japanese goods. Japan's measured response was to land 70,000 troops in Shanghai in January, 1932. The Chinese resistance was fought by the 19th Route Army, who fought strenuously but ultimately had to withdraw on February 29th. Interestingly, the Chinese goverment was extremely wary of the 19th Route Army, which it viewed basically as a warlord force and actually bribed to stay out of the city itself. Peace was brokered by the League of Nations and the withdrawal of Japanese troops was agreed in exchange for Shanghai becoming a demilitarised zone. The images here depict every phase of the battle, from the Japanese taking up positions to guard against snipers to receiving fire at Canton Ka. Many of the photos were selected to show the efficacy of Japanese fighting and thus include the burning ruins of city buildings. It is only in the final pages that images of the 19th Route Army appear.

        Two autograph letters signed "Meyerbeer" to the noted French librettist Michel Carré

      Berlin, January 6, [18]61 2 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. In black ink on ivory stationery with Meyerbeer's monogram embossed at head. In French (with translation). Meyerbeer has not yet received the manuscript of Mignon, as he wrote Carré in a previous letter. When he reads the poem, he will tell him whether or not he likes it. Although he would very much like to collaborate with Carré, he has reservations about signing a contract to produce the work next year, at the Théâtre Lyrique in Paris. "... I believe it is my duty to tell you that, as for me, it is not my habit to sign a contract or to make decisions about a work I have not yet begun. Therefore, since you need to be assured by the theater that a time has been fixed for a performance and since I cannot agree [with this plan], it would therefore be just that I grant you full liberty to dispose of your poem [as you wish], regardless of my great regret at losing your valuable collaboration in the dramatization of this beautiful work of Goethe, about which I have dreamed for so long... " (Translation by Patrick J. Smith.) Lightly creased with multiple tears along folds, slightly affecting text; some staining from two tape repairs to first leaf, somewhat affecting text. In delicate condition, but clearly executed and boldly signed. Dated Berlin, January 26, [18]61. 3 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. In black ink on ivory stationery with Meyerbeer's monogram embossed at head. In French (with translation). The manuscript of Mignon finally arrived about a week ago ?- along with an unfortunate letter from fellow librettist Jules Barbier. Convinced that Meyerbeer does not like the new adaptation of Mignon, Barbier demands that he return it. Meyerbeer is astonished; Barbier should have learned that he has only just received the work, and has barely had the opportunity to read it, let alone disapprove of it. Nevertheless, he is sending the manuscript tomorrow morning. In fact, Meyerbeer thinks rather highly of the work as a whole. "... [Barbier] tells me that he has no doubt that my opinion of the new adaptation of Mignon must be unfavorable, because, according to him, I kept it so long without arriving at a decision... I wanted to let you know, dear M. Carré, of the situation so that you understand that this return [of the manuscript] was demanded of me and that I did not make it of my own accord. There are very felicitious changes in your refashioning; there are, above all, verses of exquisite poetry; on the other hand, there are other changes of which I do not approve and which seem to me unfortunate: a part of my objections is a reflection of my own point of view; but in general, it is a very poetic and very touchinig work, charming in detail throughout, which does you the greatest honor..." (Translation by Patrick J. Smith.) Detached at central fold; slightly creased; two small tears to blank lower margin of first page; second leaf laid down to ivory cardboard mount. With original autograph envelope, ca. 55 x 143. Postmarked Berlin and Valenciennes January 26 and 28, [18]64. With Carré's Paris address to recto and four fully intact red wax seals with Meyerbeer's initials to verso. Slightly worn and soiled. Two significant letters from the collection of the noted American writer Patrick J. Smith (b. 1932). . When Meyerbeer wrote these letters, he was, "as usual... involved in several projects at once, and one of these was for incidental music to a play of Blaze de Bury, Le Jeunesse de Goethe (1860; 1862). The play was never performed and the music is lost, but Meyebeer set various Goethe texts and scenes, in particular from Faust and [the Mignon episodes from] Wilhelm Meisters Lehrjahre. Whether this effort was known to [Carré and Barbier,] the librettists of [Meyerbeer's opera] Dinorah, and whether that knowledge had any bearing on [these letters]... is unknown." Patrick J. Smith, "Two Meyerbeer Letters." In Words on Music: Essays in Honor of Andrew Porter on the Occasion of His 75th Birthday, pp. 320-325. Known as "The Father of Grand Opera," Meyerbeer was "the most frequently performed opera composer during the 19th century, linking Mozart and Wagner." Matthias Brzoska in Grove Music Online.
