        Miss Zilphia Gant.

      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.

        The Story of My Life -- one of 15 in the presentation binding

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1932 - One of fifteen copies in the full cloth presentation binding, signed per the limitation, near fine. Darrow's The Story of My Life is an American classic, the autobiography of the country's most famous trial lawyer. There were two bindings of this first signed edition: a subscriber binding (294 copies) and a presentation binding (15 copies). The subscriber copies were bound in a soft quarter cloth over soft grey paper boards and the entire binding wears poorly. There was, additionally, a presentation binding, in strong full polished cream cloth (with the title stamped into the cloth rather than separately labeled), but only fifteen of these were issued. This is one of the 15, in near fine condition, just a touch of trivial shelwear, absolutely no fraying or wear to the cloth, no bumps, contents also near fine, small periord bookseller tag on inside front pastedown. A lovely copy in a binding that is strong and flexible and can still be enjoyed as a book. The presentation binding copies were not numbered but the limitation is 15.

        The Odyssey of Homer Translated by T E Lawrence with a three-page note by him at the end of the text

      (London), 1932. Rogers, Bruce. Quarto. Unpaginated. One of 530 copies, printed and published by Rogers, Sir Emery Walker, and Wilfred Merton. Illustrated with 26 decorations of Homeric figures printed in black on round backgrounds of gold. It was Rogers who, upon reading Seven Pillars of Wisdom, decided that T.E. Lawrence would be an ideal translator for a new edition of the Odyssey-a process that was expected to take two years and ended up taking four. The famous gold roundels-one of the signature features of this edition-were based on Rogers's drawings of figures from Greek vases, each one depicting a scene from Homer's epic. These illustrations famously required seven passes through the press. Even the ink was specially made from an early 19th-century formula, using an oily resinous balsam that resulted in "a depth of black without gloss" in the roundels, as well as lending the book a slightly spicy aroma. A BR30 title, this is one of Rogers' most beautiful books and, according to Joseph Blumenthal, "indisputably among the most beautiful books ever produced ... with only type and paper and ink, with consummate skill, Rogers created a masterpiece." Lower corners bumped and show minor rubbing, traces of drying to top and bottom of spine, else fine housed in original slipcase, which shows general wear and tape repair. Bookplate. (Warde 157; Blumenthal p.134; O'Brien A141).
