        Die Ästhetische Chirurgie und ihre soziale Bedeutung.

      . Deutsche, von der Verfasserin erweiterte und neubearbeitete Ausgabe "La Chirurgie Esthetique" übersetzt von Dr. A. Hardt (Paris). Mit einem Geleitwort von Prof. E.Meirowsky. - Leipzig, J.A. Barth, 1932, 8°, 71 pp., 112 Abb., OKartBd.. Noel'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 Noel, known to her colleagues as Madame Noel, 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). (Noel 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, Andre Noel 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, Andre became severely depressed and in 1924, he threw himself into the Seine in front of his wife. Devastated, Suzanne Noel turned to her work for solace and it was to remain her passion until her death in 1954. - Noel 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, Noel 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 Noel 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. Noel 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. Noel 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. - Noel's medical career spanned the period from 1916 to 1950 and can be separated into two distinct periods. When she started practicing, plastic surgery was not an established specialty and hospitals did not admit surgeons who did exclusively plastic surgery. Noel set up her own clinic at home, becoming one of the first cosmetic surgeons in France. Her operations were limited to minor surgery, most notably, face-lifts and eyelid corrections. She apparently quickly became well-known, drawing many 'world-renowned persons of the fashion world and of the European aristocracy' (Regnault, 1971:134). - With the onset of World War II, she gave up her private clinic and performed operations in the Clinique des Bluets in Paris where she could do major surgery. According to her student, Regnault, Noel was a versatile surgeon who performed many different and often quite bold interventions - reshaping the breasts, slimming the abdomen and arms, excising fat from the legs and or eliminating wrinkles in the hand by injecting a sclerosing solution into the blood vessels. Although she is credited with initiating the Biesenburger method of mammoplasty in France, it is her technique of face-lifting, in particular the 'petite operation' or 'mini-lift', for which she continues to be known today (see, for example, Stephenson, 1970; Rogers, 1971; Gonz?lez-Ulloa, 1985). - At a time when women were struggling to gain a foothold in the medical profession, Noel appears to have won considerable recognition for her work. She was awarded the Legion of Honour from the Foreign Office in 1928 for being a 'doctor of unusual skill' whose lectures and methods were a credit to her country (Jacquemin, 1988:33). In addition to writing a widely-read book about cosmetic surgery which was translated into German in 1932 (Die Äesthetische Chirurgie und ihre soziale Bedeutung), physicians from all over the world visited Paris to observe her work. She traveled extensively in the USA, Germany, and Austria, giving lectures and demonstrating her surgical techniques. In 1930, two documentary films showing Noel operating were made in the Charite in Berlin and later written up in Medizinische Welt. She was the first woman in France to become the president of a medical society - that of aesthetic morphobiology. Her name is included in most historical accounts of modern cosmetic surgery where she is referred to as 'the world's first famous female cosmetic plastic surgeon' (Rogers, 1971). - cf.

        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.

The sheets were delivered by Passenger train, and the cases were made by the binders in advance" (quoted in Cohen).

        Small Archive of Materials Relating to the National Counter-Olympic Committee

      V.p. [mostly Los Angeles]: National Counter-Olympic Committee, 1932. Five related pieces of ephemera concerning the historically little-known effort by the Communist Party to promote a boycott of the 1932 Los Angeles Summer Olympics. Much of the effort centered around the continued incarceration of labor leader Tom Mooney, who at this point had been in prison for 15 years following his frame-up for the Los Angeles Preparedness Day bombings of 1916 (he was finally pardoned in 1939). Mooney was named "Honorary Chairman" of the organization, and the committee's propaganda, in addition to characterizing the Olympic games as racist, militaristic, and intended "to distract the attention of the masses...from their own immediate problems...from the actual starvation facing many of them," makes repeated calls for Mooney's immediate and unconditional release. & & Uncommon survivals from a fascinating phase of California communism. None of the 5 items is separately catalogued in OCLC, though the LA84 Foundation Library appears to have a few related (but not separately catalogued) items. Five pieces, including two press releases, two circulars and one fundraising pledge form. Old folds; general light wear, with some creasing at margins; pledge form is a file copy, with red pencil annotation to that effect; Very Good overall.

        Spring Long Shore

      printed by the Meriden Gravure Company for Rex Brasher Associates, [Kent, CT 1932 - Original card wrappers, illustrated titling to the upper cover, glassine wrapper Provenance: E. Harold Hugo (inscription on inside front cover) A unique off-print, specially prepared by Brasher for the man who shared his dream. E. Harold Hugo (1900-1985), or 'Al' as Brasher knew him, started work for Meriden Gravure Company, at 14. By the time he first met Brasher in the late 1920's he was a sales manager for the firm, and during World War II, he became general manager and in 1950 was named a director. He became president in 1969 before retiring in 1975. It is generally acknowledged that his greatest business achievement was to ensure that, under his leadership, the company won international renown for the quality of its work, but, perhaps his greatest individual business decision was to champion Rex Brasher's cause within his firm, a cause that was quickly taken up by company's president, Parker Allen. The company went on to provide (at very favourable rates) the uncoloured gravures that Brasher needed to illustrate his masterwork The Birds and Trees of North America , self-published by Brasher between 1929 and 1932, with 867 plates and numerous other illustrations. Brasher's nephew wrote of this deal: "The compact with Merdiden Gravure officers was altogether heartwarming and inspiring. Here were business men - almost total strangers, indifferent to security of any kind, willing and anxious to help a white-haired man realize a dream. . It was . a tribute to Rex. It was a tribute to his work. There could be no other inference. Rex could not help feeling a great flooding surge of satisfaction and new confidence" (M.E. Brasher Rex Brasher Painter of Birds p. 269). The present unique work, warmly inscribed with a small caricature self-portrait by Rex, was evidently intended by him as a small thank you to the salesmanager who became a friend. The text seems to correspond to that found in volume 11 of Rex's larger work (on Warblers, Wagtails, Pipits, etc.): the text which accompanies plates numbered 663-669 includes a narrative with the same title. The illustrated titling to the upper wrapper includes a version of the head-piece vignette on the first page of the text but is probably especially produced for this work. In effect it is a unique off-print, prepared by Brasher for Hugo because he had said how much he admired Rex's lyrical essay on the Long Island shore. (12 x 9 3/4 inches). 7 sheets (11 x 7 1/2 inches), with integral illustrations (6 after Brasher, 3 after photographs), mounted recto and verso of 4 sheets of larger blue-toned paper.
