        The Story of My Life. Inscribed by Darrow with dust jacket

      1932 - Inscribed by Darrow Darrow, Clarence [1857-1938]. The Story of My Life. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1932. xiv, 495 pp. Fourteen plates (with 16 illustrations). Cloth very good in dustjacket with some edgewear and chipping. Author inscription in bold hand to half-title. * First edition. The inscription reads: "Inscribed to/ Bob Edwards / With the kind regards of/ Clarence Darrow/ October 18 - 1934." Later printing that includes the account of the Massie trial. When Clarence Darrow died in 1938 at the age of 81, few disputed that he was one of the great attorneys of his generation. There were other lawyers in his lifetime who contributed more to the development of legal science, who rose to positions of greater influence, or who won larger financial rewards, but perhaps none who could match his record as a crusader for the common man.

        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.

This, combined with Johns use of the pseudonym William Earle, which early collectors of his works failed to recognise, makes Mossyface a very rare item. Member of the P.B.F.A. JOHNS, Captain W. E.

        The Interne

      New York: Macaulay. (1932). First. First edition. A bit of scuffing at the bottom of the boards else near fine in a bright, very good dustwrapper with some slight spine fading and some modest chipping to the spine ends. Additionally this copy is Signed by both authors -- this is one of only three books we have seen signed by Thurman. A very nice copy of this seldom encountered novel, a somewhat sensationalistic story of what happens behind the scenes at a big city hospital. Thurman was a central figure in the Harlem Renaissance. His residence in Harlem was referred to as "Niggerati Manor" and was one of the central gathering places for the Harlem intellectual elite. Born in Salt Lake City and educated there and in Los Angeles, his brilliance and varied background allowed him to participate in and simultaneously critique the Harlem Renaissance with unique perspective. He was chosen by Langston Hughes, Zora Neale Hurston, and others to be the editor of Fire!!, the short lived (one issue) magazine which was probably the high point of the young intellectuals during the Harlem Renaissance. The two novels he wrote during that time, The Blacker the Berry and The Infants of Spring, were defining works of Renaissance literature. The Interne, written with Furman, a white author Thurman met while working for the publisher Macaulay, is a scathing indictment of the bureaucracy and corruption of urban hospitals as seen by the novel's hero, an idealistic young doctor. Thurman left Harlem for Hollywood and worked on screenplays, including Tomorrow's Children starring Sterling Holloway, a story drawn from The Interne about court-ordered sterilization of the poor. At the time Thurman's weekly studio paycheck of $250 was, according to one source, the highest salary paid to any African-American in the United States. He returned to Harlem for a visit in 1934. An alcoholic and long plagued with ill-health, he collapsed in the middle of his reunion party and was taken to the very hospital he condemned in The Interne. Diagnosed with tuberculosis, he languished there for six months before finally dying on Christmas, 1934, at the age of 32. Rare in jacket and exceptionally so signed. .
