        THE BOOK-BAG

      1932 - [1 of 725 signed copies] Florence: G. Orioli, 1932. Original light blue boards with cream cloth spine, with dust jacket. First Separate Edition, issued as No. 9 in Orioli's "Lungarno Series," limited to 725 numbered copies signed by Maugham (this copy un-numbered). ~This tale has a strange history. Maugham had submitted it to Cosmopolitan years earlier, but its editor Ray Long rejected it because he feared readers would be offended by the subject matter (incest between British adult brother and sister in Malaya; the ending is vaguely reminiscent of Conrad's "Oh the horror!" in "Heart of Darkness"). In 1932, Long decided to publish an anthology of the twenty best stories he had published in Cosmopolitan, and decided (with Maugham's acquiescence) to include "The Book-Bag." Three months after Long's anthology, Orioli's Florence edition came out. (Toole Stott points out that ultimately, Ray Long indirectly lost his life due to Maugham: after reading The Moon and Sixpence Long decided that he too would become an artist in the South Pacific, left his career (in his fifties) to do just that, and subsequently committed suicide there when he realized he had no talent.)~This is a fine copy, unusually clean, with the leaves still unopened; the dust jacket is just about fine as well (one third-inch closed tear).

        Miss Zilphia Gant.

      The Book Club of Texas 1932. First edition of 300 numbered copies. - [Colophon:] "Miss Zilphia Gant" is published for the first time in an edition of 300 copies for distribution to the members of The Book Club of Texas It has been designed and printed by J. M. Colville & Son, at Dallas Texas This Copy is No. 102. 5 1/4" x 7 7/8", xi, 29 pp. + colophon. Finely printed on a thick, cream-toned paper with the BFK [Rives] France, watermark. Preface by Henry Smith. Bound in reddish-brown cloth with title & design of thick lines, gilt across spine, and across the front cover (scan shows spine & front cover). With a glassine paper wraparound (not shown in the scan; this shows some slight, age-related tanning, chipping to top spine edge, some splits to edges of this early, and likely, original glassine paper wraparound/dustjacket); spine of book shows slight fading to gilt; lower deckled-edge of p. 29 shows a small crease, tiny splits to paper, that might be a manufacturing flaw, else, in fine condition. Scarce & fairly early Faulkner item. "The publication of Miss Zilphia Gant by The Book Club of Texas is appropriate. Faulkner's work is so closely identified with the South that it seems almost out of place on an Eastern publisher's list. And he found an early recognition and critical appraisal in the Dallas News book page, the editor of which, John H. McGinnis, has some claim to be the reviewer who first appreciated the significance of Faulkner as new force in American fiction. A glance at some of the reviews of Faulkner's work will reveal that he has not always been so fortunate in his critics. Henry Smith. Dallas, May, 1932". (From the Preface, p. xi).

Prospekt für zukünfte Mieter des Maison Clarté in Genf. Das Maison Clarté, dieses Genfer Wohnhaus von Le Corbusier entstand in Jahren 1930?32.Bauherr war der Schweizer Industrielle Edmond Wanner, der auch als Bauunternehmer tätig war und deshalb die notwendige Qualität der Schweissarbeiten für die Stahlkonstruktion zusichern konnte. Dieser beauftragte den auf der Höhe seines ersten Ruhms stehenden Le Corbusier damit, ein modernes Haus zu entwerfen. Der Stahlskelettbau beherbergt 45 Duplex-Wohnungen im damals aktuellen Ausbaustandard. Das modulare Ordnungssystem, die Fensterbänder, die serielle Fertigung illustrieren die Forderungen der von ihm 1928 mitgegründeten Congrès International d'Architecture Moderne und lassen das Haus so zum Vorläufer- und Prototypenbau einer Moderne werden, die sich spätestens in den 50er Jahren weltweit durchsetzen konnte - und dafür heute oft kritisiert wird. 1100 gr.

        Even God Failed: A Story Of Revenge (Unpublished Original Manuscript Novel 1932)

      1932 - An unpublished novel (original typed manuscript) written in 1932. The manuscript contains 308 single-sided typed sheets each measuring 8-1/2" by 11" (the first page contains two quotes - one from Edward Young and one from John Milton; dedication page "To My Mother Who, in her life, knew old 'Judge Fairchild"; Introduction "Purely Personal" typed in "New York City, 1932"; and Chapters 1 through 21 comprising 305 double-spaced typewritten pages). From the author's Introduction ("Purely Personal"): "No - this is not a religious story as you might imagine. It is only a yarn about poor, sensitive moderns. The characters, who stalk through these pages, are composite creations of those souls drawn out from the memories of crowded hours. All are capable of having existed and, it is not improbable, that they would have done and said similar things if they had all been caught in such a whirlpool of human emotions." Throughout the pages are the author's typographical corrections and the occasional textual revision written in pen. The manuscript contains two hole punches to the upper edges, not affecting the text, and two hole punches to the left edge area where the manuscript is bound in a front and rear removable sturdy black paper binder with metal strips. To the front cover is the title and author sticker. Condition: the pages are understandably, but lightly, age-yellowed but are otherwise in excellent condition. The exterior black binding is worn (rear corner chip; 6" closed tear to the front cover; the title and author sticker to the front cover shows periodic small edge chips). According to the Internet Movie Database, Colby Harriman was the (uncredited) Director of Presentation of the 1925 movie classic "The Lost World." [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Lersch").

      Bodendorf an der Ahr, 7. VII. 1932. - 1¼ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. Mit einer Beilage (s. u.). An den Schriftsteller und Regisseur Hanns Maria Braun (1810-187): "Werter Kollege, darin haben Sie nicht Unrecht, daß ich Briefe gern beantworte, trotzdem es eine komische Sache ist: Wenn ein Nachbar kommt und sagt: Grab mir nach Feierabend ein Stück Feld um oder hilf mir mein Fahrrad flicken - so tu ich es sehr gern, denn es ist - gegen die Tagesarbeit eine schöne Ablenkung. Kommt aber ein Nachbar zu einem Nachbarn, der den ganzen Tag gegraben oder Fahrrad geflickt hat, der sagt, na, hast du keinen Brief zu schreiben oder so was? Das wär eine geistige Ergänzung zur Tagesarbeit. Also wenn schon schreiben, dann muß es Sinn haben [.]". - Heinrich Lersch war 1914 mit seinem Gedicht "Soldatenabschied" bekannt geworden, "in dem er der Kriegsbegeisterung der Arbeiter Ausdruck verlieh. Nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg kam Lersch in Kontakt mit dem Bund der Werkleute auf Haus Nyland, nahm jedoch eine ablehnende Haltung gegenüber dem Klassenkampf ein und schilderte u. a. in seinem autobiographischen Roman ‚Hammerschläge' (1930) die Lebensbedingungen der Proletarier, die Erfüllung in ihrer Arbeit finden. Er schloß sich den Nationalsozialisten an, die ihn 1933 in die Deutsche Akademie der Dichtung aufnahmen und seinem Werk zu großer Popularität verhalfen" (DBE). 1933 neben 87 anderen Schriftstellern ein Treuegelöbnis für Hitler unterzeichnend, unterstützte er folgerichtig im Jahr darauf einen "Aufruf der Kulturschaffenden" anläßlich der Volksbefragung zur Vereinigung des Amtes des Reichskanzlers und Reichspräsidenten in der Person von Adolf Hitler; 1935 erhielt Lersch den Rheinischen Literaturpreis. - Hanns Maria Braun, häufig unter dem Ps. Johann Gottlieb Dietrich publizierend, war Lektor im Heitz Verlag und Herausgeber der "Kulturpolitischen Rundschau", danach Schriftleiter beim "Völkischen Beobachter" und zuletzt Filmregisseur. Vgl. Kosch I, 911. - Die zwei letzten Zeilen der Recto-Seite von Bl. 1 sowie die oberen Zeilen auf Bl. 2 recto alt ausgeschnitten und mit Tesafilmstreifen erneut eingefügt; beiliegend ein Kuvertausschnitt mit e. Adresse und Absenderstempel.
