        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]

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.

        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.

        Guest Book of the Princess Kotzebue for the Château de Suisnes

      1932-1973 1932 - A guest book with entries by the cream of High Society, including Doris Duke, Wallis Simpson and Edward VIII, Perle Mesta (the "Hostess with the Mostess"; the entry was made while she was the Ambassador to Luxembourg), Millicent Hearst, Hohenlohes, Armours, and on and on. 4to. 32 by 26.5 cm. Over 230 pages chock-a-block with the inscriptions, followed by about 50 blank leaves. The chateau was a setting where super-rich Americans hobnobbed with European aristocrats, not a few of whom were originally American. Some other names we recognize: Marjorie Oelrichs, who married bandleader Eddy Duchin and was the mother of Peter Duchin, actress and then ur-interior decorator Elsie de Wolfe (signing as Elsie Mendl), decorator and Edith Wharton collaborator Ogden Codman, Margaret Copley Thaw -- the Countess of Perigny, A. Hamilton Rice, an Amazon explorer and husband to a Widener widow, various Houghtons, Brokaws, Dillons (including Douglas), Lewisohns, etc. It is a safe assumption that virtually all the guests were very wealthy, or believed to be, or very socially connected, and the names that may today be obscure would have been widely known from the society pages back when. Many of the guests were repeat visitors. Occasionally a guest would not just sign his name, but would write a short appreciation, a bon mot or stab at wit, sketch something cute, or the like. Also coming with the album are several pieces that were always separate but probably always resided within its cover. The owner of the Chateau until her death was the Princess Kozebue (1872 - 1955), né Allene Tew, of Wisconsin. Her fourth husband was Prince Heinrich XXXIII Reuss of Köstritz, who for a short period, prior to the birth of Princess Juliana, was the heir to the Dutch throne. They divorced in 1935, but Allene remained close to the Dutch Royal family, becoming the godmother of the current Queen Beatrix. A year after this divorce Allene married Russian nobleman Captain Count Pavel Kotzebue (1884 - 1966). In the album, it would seem that the Prince and Princess were known to friends as Wally and Kitty. The Gruel binding is a highly decorative full brown morocco, with a wide border band of interlaced leaves, ruled lines and tiny tulip buds. In the center is a gilt crown and a ribbon flourish below bearing the name, "CHATEAU DE SUISNES", etched out of the gilt. The spine compartments, between the raised bands, have floral devices. The endpapers are a green silk moire. Thre are a few round stains on teh front board -- only one stands out -- probably from a resting cup. The hinge is cracked near the front, with an unlovely tape repair. Still, a most attractive album befitting a grand chateau.

Fine."While in Copenhagen on a recent visit I had the good fortune to meet a lady who in her childhood --- her very early childhood it must have been --- had listened, unsuspected by the author, to Andersen himself reading for the first time some of his own newly written stories. While he read she sat on the floor under the table, silent as a mouse, hidden from Andersen's view by the tablecloth --- a little scene illustrating his well-known reluctance to be treated chiefly as a writer for children, but also providing a subject in which, had he known it, he would have found just such another incident as he had so often turned to account for one more of his immortal children's stories." (Introduction by Arthur Rackham)."The Observer invited Hugh Walpole to choose the best picture-book of 1932. 'I give the prize without hesitation to Rackham's Hans Andersen,' Walpole replied. 'He has risen nobly to his subject. He has acquired a new tenderness and grace. His fantasy is stronger than ever.'.(Derek Hudson, Arthur Rackham His Life and Work. pp. 133, 134).The fairy tales in this volume include: "The Ugly Duckling", "The Shepherdess and the Chimney-Sweep", "The Swineherd", "The Steadfast Tin Soldier", "Old Luköje", "The Tinder-Box", "Thumbelina", "The Princess and the Pea", "The Little Match Girl", "The Little Mermaid", The Emperor's New Clothes" and others.Latimore and Haskell, p. 68.

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. &#11;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
