        The Syllabus of a Novel to be Called Anthony Adverse Plus ALS to Noted Book Collector

      Farrar & Rinehart, New York 1932 - #619/1000 copies printed " for presentation to friends of the author and the publishers". SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY AUTHOR on verso of front wrapper "Autograph for Eugene L. Delafield, Esq. by Hervey Allen". Delafield was a noted New York book collector (1907-2001), the bulk of whose collection now resides in the Yale Collection of American Literature at the Beinecke Library. Laid in is a 1 page letter, signed with the initials "H.A." that reads- "One of the few remaining copies of my first book- newspaper reviews(?) with the exception of the "Weakling" which was printed in El Paso and sold to the troops along the Mexican Border in 1916. As you remember, I told you, I destroyed perhaps foolishly a few copies that remained in my possession and have been able to get ahold of only one or two since then that turned up in an old trunk. I am not anxious to have this book known as it contains verse written when I was very immature." On the back of this letter, in a different hand (presumably Delafield's) is "written circa 1925". Indeed, very few copies of Allen's 1st book survive today, and after a promising start as a poet, Allen turned to fiction and became best known for his novel "Anthony Adverse", which became a huge best-seller and was made into a memorable movie, winning 4 Oscars.

[tight clean book, the slightest bit of shelfwear to bottom edge; jacket shows minor wear along top and bottom edges, tiny stain at bottom edge of rear panel, short closed tear at top front foldover]. The first and only collaboration between Harold Bell Wright, the enormously popular author of "The Winning of Barbara Worth" and "The Shepherd of the Hills," and his son Gilbert Wright, here writing as "John Lebar." An attack on "scientism," it did not sell well upon its first publication, and is considered by collectors of Wright's work to be one of the most difficult titles to find today, especially in such superb condition. .

      New York Harrison Smith and Robert Haas 1932 - First edition, first issue with "Jefferson" instead of "Mottstown" in the first line on page 340. With an illustrated title-page. 8vo, publisher’s original beige buckram lettered in orange on the upper cover and in blue on the spine, in the very scarce original dustjacket. 480 pp. A very fine copy, the book essentially pristine and in excellent condition, the very scarce dustjacket is extremely attractive with only the most minor of mellowing evident along the edges and a small tear to the top of the fold line of the front flap. IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION AND UNUSUAL IN THIS CONDITION AND VERY SCARCE IN THE DUSTJACKET. The jacket has the correct $2.50 price and listing of Boyle, Kay as the first author on the back cover as is proper for the original first issue. LIGHT IN AUGUST is one of Faulkner's greatest books. The novel's central themes of race, religion and human nature have not, over time, been diminished in their potency. The book presents one of Faulkner’s most balanced works, discussing the negative and positive forces in life as it focuses on the relationship between men and women and between races. One of America's greatest modern writers, Faulkner was awarded a Nobel Prize in 1950 for his literary accomplishments. In his acceptance he made the brief but important statement "that man will not merely endure; he will prevail. because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance. [it is] the writer’s duty to write about these things." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

She was the recent widow of Thorsten Jonsson, the journalist and critic who had been instrumental in getting Faulkner published in Sweden. On the night of the Nobel dinner, 11 December, Faulkner walked Else home. He inscribed whichever copies of his books she had in the apartment and the two began a passionate affair which lasted several years. The couple met several times in Paris. Faulkner destroyed her letters to him but his side of the correspondence is one of the fullest and most remarkable extant. Faulkner's relationship with Else Jonsson was undoubtedly the most significant of his later life. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Directional Studies of Atmospherics at High Frequencies; Electrical Disturbances Apparently of Extraterrestrial Origin; Minimum Noise Levels Obtained on Short-Wave Radio Receiving Systems

      Institute Of Radio Engineers, 1932,, Menasha, Wi - FIRST EDITIONS IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of Karl Jansky's ground-breaking papers announcing the discovery of radio astronomy, a new science that has become one of the essential methods for making modern astronomical observations. Working at Bell Labs, Jansky "was given the task of investigating factors that could interfere with radio waves used for long-distance communication. He designed a linear directional antenna, which, mounted on wheels from a Model T Ford, could scan the sky. He indentified all the sources of interference, such as thunderstorms, except for one weak emission. This he found to be unconnected with the Sun and in 1931 he discovered that the radio interference came from the stars. Jansky published his findings in the Proceedings of the Institute of Radio Engineers in December 1932 ['Directional Studies of Atmospherics at High Frequencies'], the date that marks precisely the beginnings of radio astronomy" (Biographical Encyclopedia of Scientists). Jansky's follow-up paper, "Electrical Disturbances Apparently of Extraterrestrial Origin," published in 1933, was equally transformative, articulating "his revolutionary claim that the hiss static seemed to have its origin in our Milky Way galaxy, with a maximum in a direction that pointed close to the galactic center" (American National Biography). "At the age of just twenty-six, Karl Jansky had become the first person to detect and identify radio waves coming from outer space, a truly historic discovery. The true significance of Jansky's breakthrough surpasses even the momentous discovery that the Milky Way emits radio waves. His accomplishment was to establish the science of radio astronomy and to demonstrate that astronomers could learn a huge amount about the universe by looking beyond the narrow band of electromagnetic wavelengths that are visible to the human eye. He announced his result in a paper entitled 'Electrical Disturbances Apparently of Extraterrestrial Origin' (Simon Singh, Big Bang). The third paper in the collection, "Minimum Noise Levels Obtained on Short-Wave Radio Receiving Systems" discusses problems of noise levels and interference in short-wave systems.

        Black Elk Speaks

      NY: Morrow. 1932. The autobiography of Black Elk, an Oglala Sioux holy man, as told to Neihardt, a poet with a long knowledge of, and strong sympathy for, the Plains Indian cultures. A seminal book: the paperback edition, circulating on college campuses in the 1960s, helped re-ignite interest in Native American cultures among non-Natives. The accessibility of the text, as recounted by Neihardt, helped the book become an underground classic at a time when an alternative religious paradigm was being sought in the 1960s, as countercultural upheavals called into question the premises of the Western world view. Illustrations by Standing Bear, a Minneconjou Sioux and longtime friend of Black Elk. This copy belonged to the artist Irvin "Shorty" Shope. Inscribed to Shope by his wife in 1945, using Shope's Blackfoot name, "Maquea - stumick," or "Wolf Bull." Shope, a cowboy artist who was adopted into the Blackfoot tribe, painted a number of portraits of Native American leaders over the years. Later inscribed by Shope's son to his daughter. Foxing to top edge and offsetting to endpages; a near fine copy in a fair, price-clipped dust jacket: the majority of the jacket is present, albeit in large pieces, with the spine subtitle laid in.

Abel Gance acheta les droits à Denoël pour 300.000 francs. Impossible défi, il abandonna le projet un an plus tard. Lui succéderont : Claude Autant-Lara, Michel Audiard, Sergio Leone, Federico Fellini, François Dupeyron. Autant d'échecs, malgré la ferveur des cinéastes ("Le voyage n'est pas un film, c'est un renvoi d'ascenseur, le père Céline on lui doit tout !" - Audiard) et les efforts de Céline (il se rendit à Hollywood en 1934 pour "signer une option de six mois avec Lester Yard [.] De tous les agents, il m'a semblé le plus apte, le plus coquin"). Rendez-vous manqué ou rencontre impossible, Céline conclura : "Je laisse rien au cinéma ! Je lui ai embarqué ses effets ! . toute sa rastaquouèrie-mélo! . tout son simili-sensible ! [.] j'ai capturé tout l'émotif ! ." (Entretiens avec le professeur Y). Abel Gance ayant, par la suite, détruit une grande partie de sa correspondance avec son sulfureux ami, cette dédicace constitue un des rares témoignages de la rencontre de deux pionniers du langage artistique moderne. Bel et unique exemplaire parfaitement établi. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
