      , 1932. 1932. Signed in red ink ("Katharine Hepburn"), in blue ink ("Leland Hayward") and ("Frank Joyce") and in black ink ("Myron Selznick") and initialed by all four as well. TOGETHER WITH: supporting documents including two typescript letters on blue Leland Hayward stationery to Miss Hepburn's father, one signed in blue ink ("Katharine Hepburn") and in red ink ("Leland Hayward"); three additional typescript letters regarding the contract, one from Miss Hepburn's father to Hayward, two on American Play Company stationery; and a typescript list of the artists, writers and directors represented by the American Play Company. Contract 14-1/2 x 9 inches. Contract attached to a light blue back cover. Very good. Signed in red ink ("Katharine Hepburn"), in blue ink ("Leland Hayward") and ("Frank Joyce") and in black ink ("Myron Selznick") and initialed by all four as well. TOGETHER WITH: supporting documents including two typescript letters on blue Leland Hayward stationery to Miss Hepburn's father, one signed in blue ink ("Katharine Hepburn") and in red ink ("Leland Hayward"); three additional typescript letters regarding the contract, one from Miss Hepburn's father to Hayward, two on American Play Company stationery; and a typescript list of the artists, writers and directors represented by the American Play Company. 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. 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

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.

        Wild Pilgrimage

      New York: Harrison Smith & Robert Haas, 1932. First edition. Hardcover. Very good minus/good. Octavo [24 cm] Full rust colored cloth with paper labels on the front board and the backstrip, and the publisher's black top stain. Spine heavily rolled; endpapers discolored. In a dust jacket, which is torn along the edges and folds. The author/illustrator's third wordless novel explores the social and economic realities of the Great Depression. Preceded by the artist's groundbreaking first two novels: God's Man (1929) and Madman's Drum (1930). In this work Ward used a a two color system, rust colored for the thoughts of the protagonist, and black for the crumbling world around him. Ward produced six wordless novels between 1929 and 1937, and although Ward continued to be an illustrator in high demand for the rest of his life, these early works find him at the absolute height of his creative and artistic powers.

        Letter from Jose Raul Capablanca

      Self Published, Havana 1932 - 3 page letter (6 1/4" x 5") written on one side on each sheet in J R Capablanca's hand to unknown recipient and signed on the last page. The letter discusses Capablanca's health and the cost of traveling and remuneration. but because of the cost he was regretfully turning down the offer to perform, possibly a simultaneous exhibition. But thanked him for allowing "Isabella" to stay a few day at his place and that he may seem after a tournament later in Los Angeles. Jose Raul Capablanca y Graupera was a Cuban chess player who was world chess champion from 1921 to 1927. A chess prodigy, he is considered by many as one of the greatest players of all time, widely renowned for his exceptional endgame skill and speed of play. After several unsuccessful attempts to arrange a match with the then world champion Emanuel Lasker, Capablanca finally won the title from Lasker in 1921. Capablanca was undefeated for eight years from 10 February 1916 to 21 March 1924, a period which included the world championship match with Lasker. Capablanca lost the title in 1927 to Alexander Alekhine, who had never beaten Capablanca before the match. Following unsuccessful attempts to arrange a return match over many years, relations between them became bitter. Capablanca continued his excellent tournament results in this period but withdrew from serious chess in 1931. He made a comeback in 1934, with some good results, but also showed symptoms of high blood pressure. He died in 1942 of "a cerebral hemorrhage provoked by hypertension". Condition: Some chips to edges, paper age toned, but is bearing up well even for the fragility else a good item of a scarce Capablanca letter.

        Drummond's Portrait of Charles Dickens; A collection of material relating to the portrait of Charles Dickens by Samuel Drummond.

      n.p. [c.1932] - 17 items in total: ALsS, typed letters, transcripts, newspaper articles, two photographs, and a copy of The Dickensian (April 1925) carefully preserved in a beige cloth-covered folio scrapbook. With the booklabel of Lindsay Fleming, Aldwick Grange, Bognor Regis. This collection of papers and correspondences relates to the authenticity of the Samuel Drummond portrait of Charles Dickens, c.1844, which was for a long time in the collection of Baroness Burdett-Coutts. The rather romanticised image of the writer, with Byronesque wavy hair and a ruffled collar, led to suspicions that the painting was not of Dickens at all; additionally, the colour of the eyes was inconsistent with other portraits. When the portrait was bought by James Fleming in 1922, he and his son Lindsay set about authenticating the work, and convincing the doubters that the work was a genuine Dickens portrait. Letters from the auction house where the painting was sold, from the Dickensian B.W. Matz on behalf of Kate Perugini, Dickens's daughter, and from Charles Osborne, secretary to Burdett-Coutts, all make a case for the validity of the painting. In one letter, dated January 1923, Matz casts doubt on the portrait's credentials ("I do not know on what authority it is stated to be a portrait of Dickens."), but later in the same month, following a visit to the elderly Kate Perugini, he is more confident of its status: "During my visit to Mrs Perugini . I spoke to her about the Samuel Drummond portrait. . She is pleased to give you her assurance that she does not doubt its authenticity. . I am glad to be able to furnish this information, as it also settles a doubt that had always been in my mind". A brief overview of the evidence, typed by Lindsay Fleming, and further annotated in his own hand, is provided as an introduction. Included with the collection is Heritage Bookshop Catalogue 206 offering the portrait at $40,000. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Neues Haus Neue Welt/new House New World

      Berlin, Germany: Rudolf Mosse Buchverlag(1932). First Edition / First Printing. Fine in No Dust Jacket, As Issued. 72 pages. Collection of black-and-white photographs of the artist/architect/designer's home. One of the greatest photography, architecture, and home design books of the 20th century. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, particularly the Third Edition. Published in a tiny first print run as a hardcover original only. There is no ISBN. The First Edition is now rare. An austerely elegant production by Erich Mendelsohn: Oversize-volume format. Cream hard boards with titles embossed on the cover and spine, as issued. Photographs by Arthur Koster. Text by Amedee Ozenfant in the German original and felicitous English and French translations. Printed in hand-pulled gravure on cream uncoated stock paper by Rudolf Mosse Buchverlag in Berlin, Germany to the highest standards. The reproduction quality of each image is unsurpassed in its crispness, warmth, and tonal range. Without DJ, as issued. Presents Erich Mendelsohn's "Neues Haus Neue Welt/New House New World". The Mendelsohn House in Rupenhorn, Germany, which showcases the great architect/designer's aesthetics and worldview. Those of us accustomed to the glossy pages of Architectural Digest Magazine will never be the same again upon re-discovering this great book, first published in 1932. The Mendelsohn House is impeccable and sublime. As the contributor Amedee Ozenfant writes, it is Bach's music incarnated in structure and place. Its guiding principles are order, symmetry, and balance, realized in a completely Modern context. Hence the title. The best way to appreciate what Erich Mendelsohn has achieved is to say what it is not: It is elegant, NOT opulent. It is understated, NOT ostentatious. It is Classical and Modern at the same time, NOT nostalgic and sentimental. It is a house, NOT a palace. As such, it may not be to everyone's taste today because it isn't about "showing-off" excess, which is the prevailing aesthetic taste. Arthur Koster's photographs are captured for posterity in rich gravure that have never been surpassed. A legend upon its completion, the Mendelsohn House was seized by the Nazis. A Jew, Mendelsohn's entire fortune was confiscated; he was forced to flee first to the United Kingdom and eventually to the United States, where he rebuilt his shattered life and career as the chief exemplar of "Expressionist Functionalism" in architecture, creating the blueprint for America's department stores, designing some of its most celebrated structures, teaching at the University of California Berkeley, and building the bridge between Europe and America with Art Deco design. The guide to timeless elegance and beauty. An absolute "must-have" title for Erich Mendelsohn and photography collectors. This title is a great book. As far as we know, this is the only copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing (1932, no further indications) available online and is in fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a beauty. Please note: Copies of the Third Edition available online have serious flaws. A rare copy thus. One of the greatest architect/designers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy. .

        Tight Lines (Author's own copy, inscribed for his close friend and with an original ink sketch laid in)

      Los Angeles: Tight Lines Publishers, 1932. The author's own copy of his popular work on big game fishing. "Author's copy" written by Bandini on the limitation page. Inscribed beneath his frontis-portrait: "Margaret - But for your faith this work would never have been born - therefore whatever merit it possesses belongs to you. Affectionately Ralph Bandini." Inscribed for Margaret Stevenson who started at RKO as a typist and became involved with Bandini for a number of years. She assisted the author by typing his manuscripts, organizing his submissions and other secretarial work. Laid in to this copy is an original pen and ink drawing by Bandini of what looks like a bluefin tuna diving into the water. The book is bound in the original leather wrap-around covers, which have become brittle and cracked along the spine, although still holding. Top edge gilt, the others uncut. The front pictorial map end paper is nearly detached, some cracking within the text block, but otherwise a fairly tidy example. This copy has never before been offered for sale, having stayed in the family until now. Safe to say, this would easily be the crown jewel of a Bandini collection or a cornerstone of an angling collection. Ralph Bandini's "Tight Lines" vividly describes the world of big game fishing within southwestern California. A Pasadena native educated at Stanford University, Bandini pursued a career as an attorney (an O'Melveny alumn, like this cataloguer), turning later in life to building an enduring legacy within the sport of big game fishing. Within the span of seven years, Bandini composed the novels "Tight Lines" (1932), "Men, Fish, and Tackle" (1936), and "Veiled Horizons" (1939), as a personal introspection on game fishing and conservation in California. "Tight Lines" was heavily influenced by the Bandini family history in southern California and was composed with intricately detailed geography and personal experiences. In 1999, thirty-eight years after his death, Bandini was justly inducted into the International Game Fishing Association Hall of Fame. Good. Good

This copy has the official stamp of the Olympic Village in Los Angeles, 1932 on the title page and is signed by approximately 50 athletes from the 1932 Olympic Games, including the author (and athlete) Jim Thorpe, who dated his signature July 23, 1932. Bookplate on the front end paper of Warwick Hayes, Jr. The book is in Very Good - condition on account of a fairly wobbly text-block, crack at the rear inner hinge and minor wear at the spine ends. Despite the so-so condition, this is likely the most interesting copy of this book extant, since it was clearly carried around the Olympic Village in Los Angeles and presented to a great number of the athletes to sign.

      8vo. Dallas: The Book Club of Texas, 1932. 8vo., xi, 29, [1 colophon] pp., title-page and colophon printed in black and brown. Original adobe-red cloth decorated and lettered in gilt, deckled edges. Faint finger smudges to upper board, otherwise a bright beautiful copy. First edition, number 99 of 300 copies. A scarce, early short story by Faulkner, with a preface by Henry Nash Smith, and later reprinted in Uncollected Stories of William Faulkner. In Miss Zilphia Gant, which while published in 1932 was actually written in 1928, Faulkner introduces themes of violence, repressed sexuality, revenge, and isolation, that will recur throughout his career, especially in A Rose for Emily, and Dry September (Critical Companion to William Faulkner, By A. Nicholas Fargnoli, Michael Golay, p. 192).

        George Gershwin's Song-Book.

      New York: Random House, 1932. Signed limited first edition, number 108 of only 300 copies signed by George Gershwin and illustrator Constantin Alajalov. Quarto, bound in full publishers morocco. This copy includes the music to "Mischa, Yascha, Toscha, Sascha" in the pocket at the rear, often not found. In near fine condition. An exceptional example. American composer and pianist George Gershwin's orchestral compositions spanned the genres of popular, jazz, and classical music and are now considered to be some of the most important musical works of the twentieth century. Gershwin began his career composing Broadway theatre works with his brother Ira Gershwin and soon became a major figure in musical theatre in New York City and later Hollywood. Gershwin's classic Song-Book is illustrated with full-page color lithographic plates after Constantin Alajalov, and includes such Gershwin standards as "Swanee," "Fascinating Rhythm," "That Certain Feeling," "The Man I Love," "Strike Up the Band," and "I Got Rhythm," among others. "In one of his few prose writings, George provided an introduction for the song book. What is most important... is that it contained the original published version of each song, followed side by side by George's 'improvised' versions of the songs" (Carnovale, 14).

The flight set a transatlantic record of 14 hours, 56 minutes... and stirred such public adulation that she confided, 'I'll be glad when the zoo part is over'" (ANB).

        Hélène Rubissow. (Exhibition catalog)

      Paris: éditions de la Librairie, 1932. Quarto (28 × 22.5 cm). Original pictorial wrappers over blind paper wraps, in protective calque; 9, [2] pp., [13] leaves of plates, of which four in color. Signed and inscribed to Louis Hautec?ur, the last curator of the Musée du Luxembourg and a crucial figure in French art history and curatorship. Spine splitting at extremities; calque lightly chipped at edges; internally very good. Scarce catalog showcasing the work of Hélène Rubissow (1897-1988), or Elena Rubisova, a Russian-born artist who was trained in St. Petersburg and Berlin before settling in Paris. In 1918, she took part in the exhibition of the Mir iskusstva (World of Art) group, which included such artists as Dobuzhinsky, Iakovlev, and Chukhaev. Largely decorative and ornamental, her work represents an idiosyncratic mixture of Russian, Asian, and African influences. The present catalog preceded a solo exhibition of Rubisova's work in Paris. She also wrote and published in the Paris emigre newspaper "Poslednie novosti." After 1945, she resettled in the United States, where she taught and published widely. With a short introductory essay by Maximilien Gauthier. Inscribed by Rubisova to Louis Hautec?ur, the last curator of the Musée du Luxembourg. No. 288 of 300 copies printed. Signed and inscribed by Rubisova to Louis Hautec?ur (1884-1973), the last curator of the Musée du Luxembourg and a crucial figure in French art history and curatorship (somewhat ironically, given that he was known for his conservative, classicist taste rather than a penchant for Rubisova's brand of modernist art). KVK, OCLC show nine copies, of which four in France and five in North America, at Arizona, Hofstra, SMU Dallas, UNC Chapel Hill, and Yale.

        SAVE ME THE WALTZ

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1932. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Fair. First edition, first and only printing, with the "A" and the publisher's seal on the copyright page. Save Me the Waltz was written by Zelda Fitzgerald (1900-48) in six hectic weeks while recovering from a breakdown. The novel is intensely autobiographical, portraying a Southern belle's struggle to rise above being "a back-seat driver about life" and to earn respect for her own accomplishments - to establish herself independently of her husband. It is a forceful, truthful picture of a legendary marriage in a fabulous age, and one of the most shattering self-portraits of a woman ever committed to paper. Octavo. Original light green cloth binding, with blue titles. The spine is sun faded. In the excedingly scarce dust jacket, which is rather shelfworn and soiled, more so along the spine and folds, with some shallow chipping to the extremities. Bruccoli ZF-A1.1.
