        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. .

        Swallowdale. Illustrated by Helene Carter.

      Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Co. 1932. 8vo, 393 pp. With illustrations throughout in black and white, and a vignette on the title-page and one full-page plate in brown. Original brown cloth stamped in yellow, dust-jacket, a virtually flawless copy as issued. First American edition, a peerless copy as issued virtually impossible to find in this condition. Both the UK and the US first editions are extremely scarce. Ã’Swallowdale is the second book in the Swallows and Amazons series by Arthur Ransome. It was published in London in 1931 and a year later in the US. In this book, camping in the hills and moorland country around Ransome's Lake in the North features much more prominently and there is less sailing. A significant new character, Maria Turner, the Blacketts' Great Aunt, is introduced.& & Ransome was living in the Lake District and he drew on his experiences and memories of encounters over many years with the local farming community. Ransome had often climbed Old Man of Coniston and in the book, this becomes the children's Kanchenjunga. Expeditions to Kanchenjunga in the Himalayas had been much in the news while Ransome was writing the book.Ó (Wikipedia) The UK edition was illustrated by Clifford Webb and the US edition by Helene Carter, so the two editions are quite different.

        The Devil's Highway

      New York/London: D. Appleton and Company. Near Fine in Near Fine dj. 1932. First Edition. Hardcover. [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. .

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) to "Dear Klarkash-Ton" [Clark Ashton Smith] written on both sides of a single sheet of plain 5 1/2" x 9 inch paper, signed "E'ch-Pi-El." The letter is not dated, but is accompanied by an envelope addressed to Smith in Lovecraft's hand which is postmarked 21 March 1932. The envelope has Lovecraft's full signature and 10 Barnes Street return address in his hand on the verso

      Faint fold creases, else fine, with "Mar 21, 1932" later added in. pencil at top of first page. Good content. (#114496). A chatty letter, relating literary news about himself and their fellow writers of weird fiction: the demise of Swanson's GALAXY magazine, which "died a-borning!," the purchase of a new fountain pen at Woolworth's, his aversion to "composing" on the typewriter ("the very sight of the damn thing empties my mind of all connected ideas and images"), typing a circulation copy of "Witch House" (when he "can get the nerve" to do so), his plan to "fix up a new note book of daemonic plots" as "I've lent my old one -- used since 1919 -- to various brother fantaseers from time to time, & it's just about worn to pieces," and the progress of stories by various mutual acquaintances. "Tucked into this letter, is one of those fragments of weird fiction that emerge spontaneously in some of Lovecraft's letters (though usually during the critique of some work by the recipient). Here, Lovecraft mentions that during a visit to a local museum he 'came upon a black, gleaming specimen which certainly cannot be other than an eikon of Tsuthoggna! It was a semi-shapeless congeries of nighted curves -- squat & swollen, & with a curious suggestion of flabby viscosity despite the superficially petrific composition... [and it] left little room for doubt that it once stood in some curtained niche... of some such arcane delver as Athlaphoros, who dwelt in the Street of the Alembics & vanished suddenly shortly before the desertion of the city...' All pretty juvenile, no doubt, but the boyish exuberance is hard to resist." - Robert Eldridge.

        I am a Fugitive from a Georgia Chain Gang!

      Vanguard Press, New York 1932 - The author's first book, originally issued as a six-part serial in the pages of True Detective Mysteries in 1931, and picked up by Vanguard the following year. A slightly fictionalized but largely autobiographical account, written while in hiding, of the author's adventures with the Georgia penal system, beginning with his arrest for stealing $5.80 from an Atlanta grocer in 1922. Burns's intent was to expose the brutality and corruption of the chain gang system, and he succeeded; the book created an instant furor upon publication and became a bestseller for Vanguard. It served as the basis for the Mervyn LeRoy film released later the same year, starring Paul Muni in the role of Burns. The film heralded a new genre - the prison drama - and won three Oscars including a Best Actor Award for Muni. Copies in dustjacket are rare, this being only the second jacketed copy we have handled. SUVAK 38. Octavo (21cm); light gray cloth, with titling and decorations stamped in blue on spine and front panel; blue topstain; dustjacket; 257pp. Contemporary owner's name and date to front endpaper, light foxing to right edge of textblock, with some light offsetting to endpapers and a few faint splash marks to topstain; Near Fine. Dustjacket is unclipped (priced $2.00); evidence of clear tape removal on verso at corners, spine ends, and rear flap fold; shallow chipping at spine ends and corners, including a small triangular chip affecting the "R" in the author's name at lower front panel; light sunning to spine, with faint soil to rear panel; still a substantially complete, Very Good example.
