        Die Ästhetische Chirurgie und ihre soziale Bedeutung.

      - Deutsche, von der Verfasserin erweiterte und neubearbeitete Ausgabe "La Chirurgie Esthétique" übersetzt von Dr. A. Hardt (Paris). Mit einem Geleitwort von Prof. E.Meirowsky. - Leipzig, J.A. Barth, 1932, 8°, 71 pp., 112 Abb., OKartBd. Noël's "famous book" (Wallace) marked the end of the 'pioneering period' of cosmetic surgery and that since then, surgeons have only been concerned with 'technical variations and improvements in the operations of their predecessors'. - Suzanne Noël, known to her colleagues as Madame Noël, was the first and most famous woman to practice cosmetic surgery, working in France at the beginning of last century. She was also a feminist: a suffragette, an advocate of women's right to work, and one of the founders of soroptimism, an international women's organization. - She wrote one of the first medical handbooks about cosmetic surgery in 1926, thereby laying the groundwork for the profession as we know it today (Rogers, 1971). - Suzanne Blanche Marguerite Gros was born in 1878 in Laon, France of well-to-do parents. As the only surviving daughter of four children, she was doted on by her parents and received the usual education reserved for middle-class girls: classics, embroidery, and painting. At 19, she made a 'good marriage' to a doctor 9 years older than she, Henri Pertat. In 1905, she embarked on her medical studies; studies which she probably could not have undertaken without the consent and active support of her husband (Jacquemin, 1988:13). (Noël later claimed that she became a doctor in order to work with her husband in his dermatology practice.) She excelled in her studies and, following an illness and the birth of her daughter, passed the highly competitive 'Internat des Hospitaux de Paris' in 1912 as the 4th of 67 students. This was an exceptional performance for a woman - one which, as her official biographer notes, 'could only have been achieved by extremely hard work and a brilliant intelligence' (Jacquemin, 1988:16). In 1919, her husband died and she remarried a fellow student in dermatology, André Noël who had just returned from the front. He quickly finished his 'Internat' (graduating at the bottom of his class) and handed in a thesis which was probably based on work which his wife had been doing on the 'douche filiforme' (an installation for bathing patients with skin problems). Their marriage was short-lived. Following the death of Suzanne's daughter, André became severely depressed and in 1924, he threw himself into the Seine in front of his wife. Devastated, Suzanne Noël turned to her work for solace and it was to remain her passion until her death in 1954. - Noël first became interested in cosmetic surgery in 1912 when she noticed that the famous actress, Sarah Bernhardt returned from her American tour miraculously rejuvenated. (Bernhardt was, at that time, well over sixty.) Curious, Noël began experimenting by pinching the skin of her own face in different places to see if she could get the same effect. Surprised at what she was able to accomplish, she began to experiment more seriously, operating on anesthetized rabbits whose skin is similar in 'delicacy and elasticity to human skin'. - The advent of World War I allowed Noël to gain expertise in treating wounded soldiers for facial injuries and in 1916 she undertook further surgical training for operating on disfiguring scars as well as her old 'hobby', the rejuvenation of wrinkled faces. Noël situates the beginning of her devotion to cosmetic surgery in one of her first face-lift operations on a woman who 'due to her age was not able to earn her own living' - an operation which was apparently so successful that the patient was immediately able to find a job. Noël claims to have been so impressed by this fortuitous result that she decided to make cosmetic surgery her vocation and from that point on, did not look back. - Noël's medical career spanned the period from 1916 to 1950 and can be separated into two distinct .

Bright color illustrated boards, well protected by the DJ, which is the same design. Bright color illustrated endpapers. Of particular novelty is the first pop-up which shows Pinocchio reading a book with pages that open. Some tiny spotted foxing on preliminaries and a few leaves elsewhere have these speck-sized spots but overall text and plates very clean. One pop-up has minor surface paper rawness in corner, not affecting pictorial. One pop-up had small tear now repaired. Evidence of clumsy repair to spine using glue in narrow brown stain on upper and lower foreedge by the spine. Book now tight and tightened. Tape was also used in this earlier repair by spine in a few pages; now only light inobtrusive evidence of such. Some tape in DJ edge. Still very rare for book to have surviving DJ!

        Thoughts and Adventures

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1932. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is the first edition, first printing in dust jacket. Churchill's collection of 23 engaging essays on an incredibly wide variety of subjects was first published in 1932. It has been called "The broadest range of Churchill's thought between two hard covers" and reflects the two qualities that so characterize Churchill's life - a remarkable breadth of both mind and life experience. From the original front flap blurb: "Whether he is dealing with personal reminiscences, or telling us his views on any subject under the sun, Mr. Churchill stamps the page with his own vivid personality." In a 31 May 1932 letter to his publisher about the book, Churchill characterized it thus: "...although there is no one single theme, it has some of the best things in it I have ever written." The khaki cloth unique to the first printing of this edition is notoriously prone to scuffing, wear, and soiling, the contents proved highly susceptible to spotting, and the first printing dust jacket has become quite scarce. This copy is very good plus in a nearly very good dust jacket. The binding is tight and clean with bright gilt and sharp corners. The scuffing endemic to the first printing khaki cloth is modest. The contents remain crisp and bright, with spotting primarily confined to the first few pages and page edges. The dust jacket is unclipped. The front and rear faces are complete and notably clean, with just an incidental stray ink mark to the lower front face below the author's name. The spine is only lightly toned, with a roughly one inch x .5 inch triangular loss at the spine head, fractional chipping and some soiling at the base of the spine, and a tiny chip at the midpoint of the front hinge. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A95.1.a, Woods/ICS A39(aa.1), Langworth p.156.

        A Young Man About To Commit Suicide

      William Faro, New York 1932 - 8vo, pp. 224. Original hessian boards, spine label lettered in red. Paper on rear pastedown a little split at spine. A clean tight copy in the extremely scarce and strikingly designed dustwrapper, a little chipping with loss at spine ends and top edge of rear panel, and with some tape reinforcement to closed tears. First edition, iINSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR ON THE FRONT FREE ENDPAPER: 'For Bill Ryan - a grand researcher - this memoir of an adolescent youth on his way to nowhere. Anthony Gudiatis.' A rare book, more interesting for its publishing connections than its contents. The title is a nod to James Joyce, whose A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man is given a favourable name-check in the book. There, however, all similarity ends: this Portrait is the barely-disguised excavations of an adolescent diary, capped by a suicide-note finale which mistakes internally-rhyming sentences for Modernism. Gudaitis wrote under several names, and sometimes none at all: as Anton Gud, he edited Don't Vote Til You Read This, a libertarian manifesto published in 1952, and he is also believed to have been the uncredited author of Lady Chatterley's Husbands, published by Roth under his William Faro imprint in 1931. Bill Ryan, to whom this copy is inscribed, was another member of the publisher's inner circle, and co-author of Granddaddy of Smut, a profile of Roth which appeared in the February 1977 issue of Hustler magazine. Very scarce in any condition, let alone inscribed and in dustwrapper. A fabulous copy.

        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.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Kings Back to Back: Whitey the Irrepressible Infests Europe

      New York: Vanguard Press. 1932. First. First edition. Slight sliver from front fly, else near fine in good dustwrapper with rubbing and substantially rebacked with brown paper. A fantastic dust jacket by Vincentini, one of our favorites. The publisher liked the jacket enough to reproduce it on glossy paper for use as the front fly, something we've only seen on books by this publisher and by this author. Lovable, irrepressible, but dissolute American wreaks havoc in Europe in the company of a slightly pregnant film star, a gangster, a bartender, a dictator, and a fat lady. By the author of Queer People, which itself is one of the quintessential Hollywood novels. Exceptionally uncommon in jacket. .
