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

Book with spine very slightly faded and a previous owner's bookplate on the front paste-down. Jacket with slight spine toning and very minor rubbing at the top of the spine and at the corners.

G. Wells. Huxley's reaction is "nightmarish prognostication of a future in which humanity has been destroyed by science."

        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]

        Kulturbolschewismus?

      Eugen Rentsch Verlag, Erlenbach-Zürich, München, Leipzig 1932 - A furious denunciation of Nazi cultural policy, published in 1932, a year before the Nazis came to power. The title refers to a term thrown around by the Nazis and their sympathizers in the early 1930s, suggesting Modern art and architecture were non-Germanic and therefore Bolshevik. When the Nazis took over, the author, Paul Renner, lost his teaching job in Munich, and the books were removed from the market. Few survived; this one did. 8vo, 61, [3] pages in wrappers, entirely in German. Upper corners slightly creased, covers a bit rubbed, foxing to top edge. Otherwise, Fine. With a letter from the publisher laid in, and the original wraparound band attached to the covers. Ex-libris Ernst von Bergen, with his small label attached to inside front cover. OCLC WorldCat lists only a handful of institutions holding the original edition; other libraries carry a 2003 reprint. RARE. Paul Renner (1878-1956) was a German typeface designer who was perhaps best known as the designer of Futura, a type font still popular today. His book, which was issued by a Swiss publisher because German publishers wouldn't touch it, is set in Futura. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Brave New World

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1932. Hardcover. 1st edition, 1st printing. 306pp. Octavo. Bound in publisher's dark blue cloth with gold gilt lettering and decorations stamped to the spine. The top edge of text block stained blue. Slight bumping to corners. Some minor spots of foxing to the bottom edge. Illustrated dust jacket is price clipped and has some minor rubbing to the back panel, with minor professional restoration tidying up some closed tears. The jacket is in very good condition otherwise. Internally clean and an overall tight and bright copy. This is the first trade edition of Huxley's seminal piece of dystopic literature in the scarcely seen dust jacket. This novel takes place in an imagined dystopic state where the population is limited; natural reproduction and, as a result, the family, have been abolished; children are educated through hypnopaedic processes. Citizens have been conditioned to accept their stations in life through a process of breeding in castes, sensational entertainment, drugs, encouraged recreational sex and an abundance of material goods. There are areas of the world where "savage reservations" exist without such luxuries and family units and romantic relationships still exist. The majority of the story revolves around one such savage, John, as he is introduced to the New World and ultimately rejects the morally empty society. A beautiful copy of one of the greatest works of dystopic fiction and a deeply influential work that has been alluded to in numerous songs, movies, television shows and other books. 1932

        Mimeograph typescript, agreement between Katharine Hepburn and RKO Studios , Inc, signed ("Katharine Hepburn") and ("DO Selznick")

      1932 - 25 pp., annotations throughout, including two loose pages regarding Hepburn's salary for "A Bill of Divorcement" with annotations in pencil, dated August 30, 1932, also signed by Hepburn and Selznick; together with a typescript copy bound in blue paper with annotations and two loose pages, both with secretarial signatures. First Contract and First Role on Screen. HEPBURN'S FIRST MOTION PICTURE CONTRACT: "? 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 ?" RKO had already cast John Barrymore as the father in "A Bill of Divorcement," but was having trouble casting the role of the daughter for its adaptation of the British stage play by Clemence Dane. Miss Hepburn's agent, Leland Hayward, persuaded director George Cukor to watch her test. Cukor and studio boss David O. Selznick were both impressed, and Hepburn won the role. 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." Anne Edwards, in her biography Katherine Hepburn: A Remarkable Woman, 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 ?'"(pp. 85-86). As always, Miss Hepburn made an entrance with a lasting impression. "A Bill of Divorcement" was an auspicious debut for Hepburn; critics praised her performance, and a year later, in only her third film, she would win her first of a record four Academy Awards for actress in a leading role, in RKO's "Morning Glory" Provenance: Estate of Katharine Hepburn Front and back cover very worn, and detached from mimeograph copy, tears and wear on front and back cover on typescript copy 25 pp., annotations throughout, including two loose pages regarding Hepburn's salary for "A Bill of Divorcement" with annotations in pencil, dated August 30, 1932, also signed by Hepburn and Selznick; together with a typescript copy bound in blue paper with annotations and two loose pages, both with secretarial signatures [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        [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. (When referring to this item please quote stockid 159540).

        Black Mischief.

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1932. FIRST EDITION, with proof state dust-jacket. Octavo (19 x 13cm), pp.303 [1]. In publisher's snakeskin-patterned red and black cloth with gilt titles to spine. With publisher's PROOF STATE cream dust-jacket, with a blank rear flap and no price marked to the front flap.Edges heavily spotted; slight reading lean. Spine lightly sunned. Jacket is slightly discoloured with some minor chips and closed tears to edges. Very good. Waugh's third novel is a controversial book which established him as a master satirist. Set on the fictional African island of Azania, 'Black Mischief' is a thinly veiled reference to the then empire of Abyssinia, now Ethiopia. The novel chronicles the efforts of the English-educated Emperor Seth, assisted by a fellow Oxford graduate (Waugh's recurring character) Basil Seal, to modernize his Empire.

        The Taxi-Dance Hall

      University of Chicago Press, Chicago 1932 - First edition. Octavo. 300, [1]pp., three folding maps of Chicago bound in. Small stains near the spine, thus very good, in very good or better dustwrapper with a few small stains, mostly on the front panel. Sociological exploration of the taxi-dance hall in Chicago. The author's conclusion was that the hall, where young girls danced with gentlemen for payment (for the proverbial "dime-a-dance") was a school for sexual exploitation, but which might fulfill a positive place in society for lonely men if the halls were carefully monitored. Although the taxi-dance has become extinct, its cousin the lap dance is apparently still flourishing, albeit we are told, for somewhat more than a dime. [Attributes: First Edition]

Octavo, bound in full morocco, gilt titles to the spine, raised bands, gilt ruled to the front and rear panels, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. In fine condition. A very nice presentation. "A nightmarish prognostication of a future in which humanity has been destroyed by science... easily Huxley's most popular (and many good judges continue to think his best) novel" (DNB). "After the success of his first three novels, Huxley abandoned the fictional milieu of literary London and directed his satire toward an imagined future. He admitted that the original idea of Brave New World was to challenge H.G. Wells' Utopian vision... The novel also marks Huxley's increasing disenchantment with the world, which was to result in his leaving England for California in 1937 in search of a more spiritual life. The book was immediately successful" (Parker & Kermode, 161-62). Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 Greatest Novels of the twentieth century.

        Avtomati: neveroiatni razkazi [Machines: incredible stories]. (Signed by the author)

      Sofia: Izdanie T. F. Chipev, 1932. First edition. Small octavo (17.5 × 12.5 cm). Original pictorial wrappers by Sirak Skitnik; 110, [2] pp. Signed and inscribed by the author to half title. Wrappers with light wear and dust-soiling; old shelf-label to rear wrapper; a few pages unevenly cut open; occasional foxing; overall still good or better. Sirak Skitnik's cover for this collection of fantastic stories ranks among the high spots of Bulgarian avant-garde book design and constructivist typography. Skitnik (the pseudonym of Panaiot Todorov, 1884-1943) was one of the most productive (and iconic) graphic artists of Bulgarian modernism, whose work ranged from the Expressionism of the early 1920s to Constructivism in the early 1930s. Svetoslav Minkov (1902-1966) began his career as an Expressionist and absurdist writer, pioneering the "diabolist" genre in 1922 and introducing German "supernatural" fiction into Bulgarian literature, after being influenced by the circle around Kubin and Meyrink during an extended stay in Munich (see Domenico Jacono, Bulgarian modernism, p. 64). This collection consists of five science fiction stories that combine absurdist elements with social satire and would lay the foundation of the genre in Bulgarian literature. Jacono 44.
