        Mister Tvister. Risunki i obloschka V. Lebedeva [In Russian; i.e. Mister Twister. With Drawings and the Wrapper by V. Lebedev].

      Leningrad - Moskva (Moscow), Molodaja Gvardija, 1933. 12mo. Stapled, in the original coloured illustrated wrappers: Some minor wear along spine, resulting in a tear to lower hinge, virtually no loss. A bit of minor soiling. A very fine copy of this fairly fragile publication. With many illustrations throughout. (18) ff.. The scarce first edition of Marschak's important political and social comment to Russian society, masked as a children's story. Marschak played a seminal role in the emergence of children's literature in Russia after the Revolution, and the present work constitutes a prime example of the political satire and comment for which this genre also served as a cover. In pre-revolutionary Russia children literature had been in somewhat of a stand-still since the appearance of the first journal for children appeared in 1785. Throughout the entire 19th century texts by Russian authors were counted as children's literature, although they had by no means been written as such, e.g. works by Puschkin, Lermontov, Gogol, Turgenjev, Tolstoj etc., etc. There was no such thing as actual children's literature in its own right. Not until the 20th century did this change. With the political and social changes after the Revolution of 1917, the field of children's literature would change, and Marschak was at the centre of this change. He was the director of the actual children's periodical "The New Robinson", which hired authors to write stories specifically for children. This must naturally have been a relief for the children, but as important was the fact that this sort of writing could become a refuge for the authors themselves. To a large extent the genre of children's literature was considered harmless and not something that was politically supervised; this meant that the authors could express them self much more freely here that they would normally be able to. And thus, it is among the children's literature around 1930 that we find some of the most politically interesting Russian works, Marschak's "Mister Twister" being a prime example. The moral story of an American racist, who travels to Russia, refuses to stay in a hotel-room next door to a black man and ends up without a roof over his head, could be seen as a tale for children which instructs them in how to treat people equally and not look down upon others. But as much as this, and perhaps more, the present pamphlet is an ingenious piece of political satire which plays off socialism against capitalism. What would have been impossible in adult literature, becomes possible in that for children, and Marschak masters the ambiguity to perfection. Furthermore, it is a work in which Marschak displays his thrill with the technical progress of RussiaThe work appeared in German in 1933

        Life in a Technocracy: What It Might Be Like

      New York: Viking. 1933. First. First edition. Fine in fine, price-clipped dustwrapper with a very faint spot on the spine. Book length essay on the possible effects of a technocracy on American life. Loeb was an important figure in the Paris expatriate community. He is remembered in the literary world as the model for Jake Barnes's rival for the affection of Lady Brett Ashley in The Sun Also Rises, where his early kindnesses to Hemingway (using his influence with Horace Liveright to get In Our Time published) was repaid by being portrayed as Robert Cohn, the cowardly and especially "Jewish" villain. Loeb's views on a political movement which, though largely forgotten today, had numerous adherents between the wars. .

        Tarzan and His Mate (Original screenplay archive for the 1934 film)

      Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1933. Two revisions of the script, and one master archive of crew notes for the 1934 film, dating November 1932, March 1933, and July 1933, with the March 1933 draft being an archive that includes 251 pages of various notes, edits, changes, and shot suggestions from 25 different members of the crew involved in the film, including director Gibbons, producer Hyman, screenwriters McGuinness, Rogers, Gordon, and many others. The second Tarzan film to star Johnny Weissmuller, with Jane famously portrayed by Maureen O'Sullivan.One of the best Tarzan films, and a landmark film in the history of film censorship. A big budget followup to MGM's first Tarzan film, "Tarzan and His Mate" featured a lengthy balletic swimming scene between Tarzan and a nude Jane, with Olympic swimmer Josephine McKim doubling for Maureen O'Sullivan, one of the first completely nude scenes in a Hollywood film. The scene, along with the occasionally breast and buttocks revealing costume worn by O'Sullivan in other scenes, ran afoul of newly appointed Production Code Administration head Joseph Breen, who was determined to more strictly enforce decency standards than his predecessor, the Code's namesake Will Hays.The film was censored and changes were ordered by Breen. MGM appealed the decision to the Association of Motion Picture Producers but, despite the vigorous objections by Louis B. Mayer and Irving Thalberg, it became the first film to lose such an appeal. In total, eleven minutes were cut from the film, including the swimming scene, making it one of the first films affected by the new, more censorious PCA, and one that sits clearly on the line demarcating the pre-Code and Code Enforcement eras.In 1986 Ted Turner had the film restored to its original 116 minute version, and it is that version that is available for home viewing today.A story set in Africa, shot on location in Silver Springs, Florida and various locations in California.

Completed in type. Lightly soiled. Fine condition.Accompanied by an 8.75? x 4? envelope, colorful Cardinals logo in upper left, addressed to ?Mr. Eugene Moore, / Lancaster, Texas,? postmarked St. Louis, Missouri, February 7, 1934. From a later communication with Moore. Forwarded from Lancaster, Texas, to Edwards, Mississippi, c/o S.L. Bryan. Opened at right removing part of postage stamp.National League of Professional Baseball Clubs Uniform Player?s Contract. In part, ? Parties. The St. Louis National Baseball Club herein called the Club, and Eugene Moore of Lancaster, Texas herein called the Player ... the Club hereby employs the Player to render skilled service as a baseball player in connection with all games of the Club during the year 1934 ... For the service aforesaid the Club will pay the Player an aggregate salary of $3000.00...?Branch Rickey (1881-1965) was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1967. His HOF plaque is engraved: ?Founder of Farm System which he developed for St. Louis Cardinals and Brooklyn Dodgers. Copied by all other Major League teams. Served as Executive for Browns, Cardinals, Dodgers and Pirates. Brought Jackie Robinson to Brooklyn in 1947.? His HOF biography: ?After a mediocre career as a player and manager, Branch Rickey spent half a century in the front office as baseball?s greatest visionary executive. With the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1920s and 1930s, Rickey invented the modern farm system, promoting a new way of training and developing players. Later with the Brooklyn Dodgers, he pioneered the utilization of baseball statistics. In 1945, he became the first executive to break baseball?s color line when he signed Jackie Robinson, who became the major leagues? first African-American player in the 20th century.?This contract, signed by Branch Rickey on December 29, 1933, was mailed to Gene Moore but was not signed by him. Evidently Rickey was certain Moore would sign with the Cardinals, which he did. From an Associated Press story a month earlier, datelined St. Louis, November 26: ??I feel that all they need to win the pennant is for the men now on the club to click,? the Cardinals vice president said today ... As Rickey views the outlook, the pitching is ?good,? the infield ?strong,? and the outfield ?greatly strengthened? by the addition of three recruits, Gene Moore from Houston, Buster Mills from Rochester and John Rothrock from Columbus. ?If somebody had said to me, ?Go out and buy the three best outfielders you can buy,? these three would have been among the first four I would have considered,? Rickey asserted...?In a February 17, 1934 interview with the ?Chicago Daily Tribune,? St. Louis Cardinals player-manager Frankie Frisch gave this lineup: ?Collins on first, Frisch on second, Durocher at short stop, and Martin on third. Medwick will be in left field, [Ernie] Orsatti, Mills from Rochester, and Gene Moore from Houston will all have a fling at the center field job. For right field, we have Watkins and Rothrock. Davis will do most of the catching...?Outfielder Eugene Moore (1909-1978), nicknamed ?Rowdy,? played for the Cincinnati Reds in 1931 and three teams in the Illinois-Indiana-Iowa League and the New York/Penn League in 1932. In 1933, he played for the Houston Buffaloes in the Texas League. He also appeared in 11 games for St. Louis in 1933 batting .395 (15 for 38). Moore played for the Cardinals in 1934 and 1935 and the Boston Braves (1936-1938, 1940-1941), Brooklyn Dodgers (1939-1940), Washington Senators (1942-1943), and St. Louis Browns (1944-1945).
