Near fine album with near fine photographs.A photo album depicting a trip from Arizona to California in the summer of 1932. The album begins with photos from the Grand Canyon on June 10, 1932. One photo shows the Colorado River with a caption which reads, "one mile below rim of canyon." The photos continue with the group of travelers, most of whom are women, posing around the canyon at Powell Memorial and Hermit's rest.

        [Photographs of the Hostilities in Shanghai in 1932]

      1932.. 253 snapshots most held in place by photo corners, 22 black card leaves, 5 are loose. Some photographs and leaves are missing in the early section of the album though fortunately these seem likely to have held more personal images judging by those that immediately follow. The covers of the album missing. One photograph is torn in two but the others are all in good condition. A very interesting album which opens with photographs reflecting European life in China in the 1930s. Domestic scenes, snapshots taken at leisure - on board a yacht, hunting, at the races and while viewing the "Pagodas up Country' etc. Six photographs show the arrival of an aeroplane at the race course and an assembled crowd of people including uniformed servicemen to meet it. What makes this album unusual and particularly interesting are the 145 photographs which show hostilities in Shanghai in 1932. This second part of the album is serious in nature with many photographs of corpses, the bombing of Shanghai from a distance, close up images of devastation caused, fighting in the street, barricades, and other images grimly portrait the city grimly at war. Many of the images were taken within the Shanghai International settlement. .

        Photographic portrait by Edward Steichen, signed by Churchill across the lower, dark, portion of the image (some letters touching his right hand).

      New York: Edward Steichen,, 1932. Image: 240 x 190 mm; frame: 300 x 250. Framed and glazed in a dark red leather, gilt tooled, desk frame. Reves name and dimensions pencilled on verso of image. In excellent condition. One of the finest portraits of Churchill, captured by the celebrated American photographer Edward Steichen, showing the 57-year-old Churchill seated, smiling, with right hand in jacket pocket. "A critic wrote about the renowned photographer that the 'worldly men of business and politics were invariably presented by Steichen in a setting as static as their own large offices. He could be confident that Churchill, for instance, would only accept the traditional seated figure against a dark background format'" (Max Arthur, Churchill: The Life: An Authorized Pictorial Biography, 2015, p. 155, illustrating a different portrait). The setting may be static but the force of Churchill's personality radiates from this beguiling image, captured in 1932 as a commission for Vanity Fair, while Churchill was on a speaking tour of the United States. A letter from Churchill's private secretary, Violet Pearman, to Emery Reves (dated 16 December 1937) mentions that "the signed photograph was sent to you yesterday, and I hope it reaches you safely" (Martin Gilbert ed., Winston Churchill and Emery Reves: Correspondence 1937-1964, p. 87). It is quite possible that this refers to the present portrait. From the collection of Churchill's literary agent Emery Reves, accompanied by a photograph of Reves with the same portrait (differently framed) on his desk. Emery Reves (1904-1981) had been instrumental in promoting Churchill's pre-War international profile by the world-wide syndication of many of his prophetic articles during the late 'thirties. Churchill biographer Jonathan Rose gives the background to their early association: "[At this time] Churchill was trying to disseminate his dissenting views as widely as possible, with the help of an indispensable agent. Emery Reves was a Hungarian Jew who in 1930 launched the Cooperation Press Service. Based in Berlin, he distributed articles by prominent politicians to publications outside their home countries. Within two years he had about a hundred political writers in his stable… publishing them in 400 newspapers in 70 nations. 'Naturally the organization was rather profitable,' he recalled… On 1 April 1933 Nazi stormtroopers attacked Jewish businesses throughout Germany, and Reves took the night train to Paris, where he opened a new office on the Champs-Eylsees. Reves was keen to recruit Churchill, and Austen Chamberlain set up a meeting on 25 February 1937 in Churchill's London flat at Morpeth Mansions. Having just emerged from his bath, Churchill was as skeptical as he was naked, so Reves handed him a fat folder of Austen's clippings. Promptly telephoning Lord Beaverbrook's office, Churchill was dismayed to learn that 'Chamberlain's articles are much more widely distributed than mine.' In June Churchill and Reves signed a contract, and the latter became the conduit for distributing Churchill's jeremiads against Hitler to Europe, the British Empire and the United States. A senior Foreign Office official urged Reves to stop – for in fact he was enabling Churchill to run around Neville Chamberlain's media blockade, with some assistance from the latter's half-brother. 'He was really in the political doghouse,' Reves remembered. 'Through my service he got on the front pages of the newspapers in twenty-five languages, with up to a fifteen, even twenty million circulation'" (The Literary Churchill: Author, Reader, Actor, Yale 2015, pp. 257-58). Their association blossomed again after the War when Reves negotiated the sale of the US rights for The Second World War, and purchased the international rights himself, selling serialization to twenty-seven newspapers across the globe and securing book rights in eleven European countries. Churchill said of this feat, "I am sure that no one could have done it except Reves, who buzzed around the world for nearly a year making contracts." They subsequently worked closely together on the book itself, Reves having what Martin Gilbert has described as "considerable editorial input". A superb "Wilderness Years" portrait with a fine association.

        Tremblement de ciel

      Editions de l'As de Coeur / Louis Tschann, Paris 1932 - 62 pp., in-12° (135 x 185 mm), broché. 1ère édition française (originale, Madrid 1931). Avec un portrait de l’auteur par Juan GRIS en frontispice. Envoi signé de l’auteur à Gaston Poulain sur la page de garde.[(Vicente Huidobro, né le 27 avril 1893 à Santiago, et mort le 2 janvier 1948, est un poète surréaliste et écrivain chilien qui a fortement contribué au renouvellement de la poésie sud-américaine au cours du xxe siècle. Il est considéré comme l'un des quatre grands de la poésie chilienne (avec Pablo Neruda, Gabriela Mistral et Pablo de Rokha). Il est connu pour son importante oeuvre poétique et pour être le fondateur du mouvement "Créationnisme", dont les oeuvres seront caractérisées par l'absence de signes de ponctuation, la disposition des vers, les thèmes non transcendantaux et les images extraordinaires. Vicente Huidobro fut aussi journaliste de guerre, scénariste, critique de cinéma. Fils de Vicente García-Huidobro et de María Luisa Fernández Concha, Vicente naît à Santiago au sein d'une famille riche, liée au monde de la politique et de la banque. Sa mère est une active féministe qui fréquente de nombreux cénacles littéraires. Son père est l'héritier du Marquesado de la Maison Royale. Après avoir passé ses premières années en Europe, Huidobro entre en 1907 au Collège jésuite San Ignacio à Santiago. Il suit des études de littérature à l’Université du Chili et publie Des échos de l'âme à Santiago (1911), composition de tendance moderniste. L’année suivante, il se marie avec Manuela Portales Bello, avec qui il a quatre fils. Il fonde et dirige la revue Jeune Muse, où paraît une partie de son livre Chansons dans la nuit. Poète très prolifique, "Altaigle ou le voyage en parachute", publié en 1931, peut être considéré comme son oeuvre principale; elle est d'ailleurs la plus connue. Écrit sur une période d'une douzaine d’années, cet ensemble se caractérise par l'emploi d'un langage tout à la fois lyrique, surréaliste, expressionniste, voire romantique tel qu'on le pratiquait au début du siècle. On peut considérer les textes composant cet ouvrage comme se situant à la jonction entre langage traditionnel et langage moderne. De fait, dès ses débuts, Huidobro s'est opposé aux courants littéraires de son temps et a lutté pour les changer, affirmant la nécessité de transgresser les formes conventionnelles. Faisant partie du mouvement surréaliste au Chili, après avoir vécu un temps à Buenos Aires, il se rend à Paris et Madrid avec sa femme et ses enfants. En Europe il travaille auprès des grandes figures du monde poétique et artistique d'alors. Il obtient une place privilégiée dans le cercle des écrivains modernistes. A Paris il devient l'ami des grands artistes d'avant-garde du temps, Apollinaire, Pierre Reverdy, Jean Cocteau, André Breton, Juan Gris ou Paul Éluard. De retour au Chili, il s’implique dans la vie politique en défendant des idées communistes. C’est à cette époque, il a 33 ans, qu’il tombe amoureux d’une jeune fille, Ximena Amunátegui, âgée de 14 ans. Il quitte sa femme avec la volonté d'épouser Ximena, mais les parents de la jeune fille s’y opposent fermement et il est même obligé de quitter le pays. Deux ans plus tard cependant, il enlève sa belle et se marie avec elle selon le rite musulman, car il s'est converti entretemps à l'Islam. En 1934, naît son cinquième fils, Vladimir, prénom donné à l'enfant en honneur à Lénine. En 1945, tandis qu'il travaille comme correspondant de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, Ximène le quitte pour un jeune poète chilien, Godofredo Iommi. À son retour à Santiago, il rencontre celle qui deviendra sa troisième femme, Raquel Señoret. En 1946, il s'installe à Carthagène, station balnéaire chilienne située dans le littoral du centre du Chili. L'année suivante, il est victime d’un accident vasculaire cérébral attribué à ses blessures de guerre. Le 2 janvier 1948, il meurt dans sa maison et est enterré, selon ses désirs, sur une colline face à la mer. Sa fille aînée, Manuela, et Eduardo Anguit [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        The International Style: Architecture Since 1922

      W.W. Norton and Company. Hardcover. New York, 1932. 8vo, cloth with jacket, unpaginated. A very nice copy of this landmark architecture title in the scarce dustjacket. The book is near fine with some very light normal age-related wear and faint creases to the first few leaves at upper corner, as well as a tiny ink mark on front free endpaper that looks like the remnants of an old price. The jacket is very good minus with a triangular chip of nearly an inch at top of spine, some small chips and a a line written in ink on head of spine. Remains quite attractive. "Hitchcock is best known as the historian of modernism. His collaboration with Philip Johnson on Modern Architecture: International Exhibition, held at the Museum of Modern Art in 1932, and the accompanying catalog, The International Style: Architecture since 1922 (1932), made him the preeminent advocate of modernism in architecture in America. The exhibition and the book presented the previous decade of architecture in Europe, the United States, and Japan as embodying an international movement that had cast aside what the collaborators viewed as the falsehood of much nineteenth-century architecture. The already existing, coherent style of architecture that Johnson and Hitchcock claimed to have recognized was simplified in the catalog's introduction by Alfred H. Barr, Jr., as an emphasis on volume over mass, regularity as opposed to symmetry, dependence on the intrinsic qualities of materials, the use of fine proportions, and a rejection of applied ornament." - ANB.

        Night flight.

      American expatriates Harry and Caresse Crosby founded the Black Sun press in Paris in 1927 to publish their own work, originally under the name "Éditions Narcisse" and with "Crosby Continential Editions" as yet another of their imprints.The press published many of the Lost Generation of American authors; in the year that this work appeared, it also printed Kay Boyle's Year Before Last, Robert McAlmon's Indefinite Huntress, Hemingway's Torrents of Spring, Faulkner's Sanctuary, and Dorothy Parker's Laments for the Living. Its stable of writers was wide, however, and included => just about anyone who was "modern" no matter the nationality. Saint-Exupéry (1900-44) published Vol de nuit in 1931, based on his experiences as an airmail pilot and director of the Aeroposta Argentina airline. It was an instant bestseller and Stuart Gilbert's translation into English quickly followed in 1932. Here that translation carries a preface by André Gide, in the first Black Sun Press edition. Cyril Connolly's The Modern Movement: One Hundred Key Books from England, France, and America 1880-1950 included Night Flight as one of four books for 1931.

        Guido Cavalcanti Rime

      Edizione Rappezzata fra le Rovine / Edizione Marsano Anno IX [i.e.X] 1932, Genova - Sole edition - one of about 500 copies apparently "rappezzata fra le rovine" [salvaged from the ruins] (although far fewer appear to have been issued) of what Pound had originally intended to be a sumptuous production by Faber & Gwyer of the verses of the 13th century troubador (and soul-mate of Dante Alighieri). (Gallup B27]. Inscribed by Pound on the front free endpaper: "With benediction on the # [?] Ezra Pound anno XVI # the date of inscription J. Angleton". Raised in Italy, James Jesus "Jim" Angleton was an aspiring young poet when he visited Pound in Rapallo in 1938. The two subsequently corresponded and Angleton published some of EP's writings on economic theory in his short-lived magazine "Furioso", produced whilst he was a student at Yale. With dizzying irony, Angleton went on to work for the CIA, running the shadowy X-2 counter-intelligence section's Italian desk during the war, searching local sources for information about enemy spies. He would certainly have been aware of Pound's Italian broadcasts and, despite the fact that those were based on the same views that Angleton had been happy to publish at Yale four years previously, they appear to have been the direct cause of Pound's arraignment for treason after the war and his eventual twelve years' confinement on grounds of insanity at St. Elizabeth's Hospital. Angleton eventually rose - if that's the right word - to become director of counter-intelligence staff at the CIA from 1954-1974. Not in the British Library - the only copy located in the UK apparently being at the Bodleian. A nice copy, re-bound in half-buckram and patterned paper boards, with the original wrappers bound-in.

Contract 14-1/2 x 9 inches. Hepburn's signed contract with her first Hollywood agent. Signed management contract between the 25-year-old Katharine Hepburn and Leland Hayward, at the dawn of her film career. Leland Hayward discovered Katharine Hepburn while she was playing the part of an Amazon queen in "The Warrior's Husband" at the Morosco Theater in New York City. Hayward felt Miss Hepburn had a star quality and after much pursuing and negotiating, she agreed to be represented. Anne Edwards, in her 1986 biography of Hepburn, tells the story of what happened next: "[Hayward] talked to Paramount Studios about [Hepburn] and they made a small offer for her services. Kate turned them down. From childhood she had loved films. But to go to Hollywood as a mere starlet, a contract player, would never do. She insisted Leland Hayward set fifteen hundred dollars a week as her price, believing a studio would not be likely to pay such a price for a relative beginner unless they intended to make that person an important player. R.K.O. picked up the bait and asked her to take a screen test ... As fate would have it, David O. Selznick was struggling with the casting of the film version of Clemence Dane's 'A Bill of Divorcement' ... Hayward got word of the problem and convinced [director George] Cukor to see Kate's test. Cukor was stunned ... 'She'll be greater than Garbo' ... On June 30, [Hepburn] received a telegram from Leland Hayward telling her that not only would R.K.O. meet her fifteen-hundred-dollar-a-week demand, she was to leave for California on Sunday to appear opposite John Barrymore..." (Katharine Hepburn: A Remarkable Woman, pp. 78-80). Hepburn and Hayward soon after began an affair that would last four years -- the first of many for both. Provenance: The Estate of Katharine Hepburn

        Photographic portrait by Edward Steichen, signed by Churchill across the lower, dark, portion of the image (some letters touching his right hand).

      New York: Edward Steichen, 1932 - Image: 240 x 190 mm; frame: 300 x 250. Framed and glazed in a dark red leather, gilt tooled, desk frame. Reves name and dimensions pencilled on verso of image. In excellent condition. One of the finest portraits of Churchill, captured by the celebrated American photographer Edward Steichen, showing the 57-year-old Churchill seated, smiling, with right hand in jacket pocket. "A critic wrote about the renowned photographer that the 'worldly men of business and politics were invariably presented by Steichen in a setting as static as their own large offices. He could be confident that Churchill, for instance, would only accept the traditional seated figure against a dark background format'" (Max Arthur, Churchill: The Life: An Authorized Pictorial Biography, 2015, p. 155, illustrating a different portrait). The setting may be static but the force of Churchill's personality radiates from this beguiling image, captured in 1932 as a commission for Vanity Fair, while Churchill was on a speaking tour of the United States. A letter from Churchill's private secretary, Violet Pearman, to Emery Reves (dated 16 December 1937) mentions that "the signed photograph was sent to you yesterday, and I hope it reaches you safely" (Martin Gilbert ed., Winston Churchill and Emery Reves: Correspondence 1937-1964, p. 87). It is quite possible that this refers to the present portrait. From the collection of Churchill's literary agent Emery Reves, accompanied by a photograph of Reves with the same portrait (differently framed) on his desk. Emery Reves (1904-1981) had been instrumental in promoting Churchill's pre-War international profile by the world-wide syndication of many of his prophetic articles during the late 'thirties. Churchill biographer Jonathan Rose gives the background to their early association: "[At this time] Churchill was trying to disseminate his dissenting views as widely as possible, with the help of an indispensable agent. Emery Reves was a Hungarian Jew who in 1930 launched the Cooperation Press Service. Based in Berlin, he distributed articles by prominent politicians to publications outside their home countries. Within two years he had about a hundred political writers in his stable publishing them in 400 newspapers in 70 nations. 'Naturally the organization was rather profitable,' he recalled On 1 April 1933 Nazi stormtroopers attacked Jewish businesses throughout Germany, and Reves took the night train to Paris, where he opened a new office on the Champs-Eylsees. Reves was keen to recruit Churchill, and Austen Chamberlain set up a meeting on 25 February 1937 in Churchill's London flat at Morpeth Mansions. Having just emerged from his bath, Churchill was as skeptical as he was naked, so Reves handed him a fat folder of Austen's clippings. Promptly telephoning Lord Beaverbrook's office, Churchill was dismayed to learn that 'Chamberlain's articles are much more widely distributed than mine.' In June Churchill and Reves signed a contract, and the latter became the conduit for distributing Churchill's jeremiads against Hitler to Europe, the British Empire and the United States. A senior Foreign Office official urged Reves to stop – for in fact he was enabling Churchill to run around Neville Chamberlain's media blockade, with some assistance from the latter's half-brother. 'He was really in the political doghouse,' Reves remembered. 'Through my service he got on the front pages of the newspapers in twenty-five languages, with up to a fifteen, even twenty million circulation'" (The Literary Churchill: Author, Reader, Actor, Yale 2015, pp. 257-58). Their association blossomed again after the War when Reves negotiated the sale of the US rights for The Second World War, and purchased the international rights himself, selling serialization to twenty-seven newspapers across the globe and securing book rights in eleven European countries. Churchill said of this feat, "I am sure that no one could have done it except Reves, who buzzed aroun [Attributes: Signed Copy]
