        URSS en Construction, Makejevstroi and Louganstroi Number

      1933. TROSHIN, N.S. URSS en Construction. Makejevstroi and Louganstroi Number. (1933 #7). Illustrated with photography by M.V. Alpert. Folio, bound in original wrappers. Moscow: Editions d'Etat des Beaux-Arts, 1933. |~||~||~||~| A fine copy of one of many monographic issues of this landmark periodical, devoted to all aspects of wood in the Soviet Union. As Martin Parr says "from 1930-1940 URSS en Construction employed the best Soviet photo-journalists and graphic designers. Amongst the photographers were Max Alpert, Arkadi Shaikhet, Georgi Zeima, Boris Ignatovich, Semen Fridland and Georgi Shaikhet. Designers included Nikolai Troshin, El Lissitzky, Sophie Kueppers, Aleksandr Rodchenko and Varvara Stepanova. All the visual strategies of the propaganda photobooks, designed by Lissitzky, Rodchenko and others -- the elaborate photomontages, innovative photography, fold-out pages, transparent overlays and so on -- were developed in URSS en Construction, one of the most beautifully produced magazines of the twentieth century." It was published in Russian, French, English and German. This is the French version. Edgewear to 1 page, but overall in fine condition. Parr and Badger, The Photobook I, 148-149.

Entries correspond to individual species and contain sections describing inter alia the animal's physical appearance and, for the hunter's practical needs, the trophies that one could expect to gain from a kill. Very uncommon in this condition with the dust jacket.

        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. First draft: Pale blue studio wrappers, noted as COMPLETE on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped copy No. 2612 and production No. 1921, dated Nov. 25, 1932.
