        Design for Living: A Comedy in Three Acts [*SIGNED* by the principals]

      Garden City NY: Doubleday, Doran and Company, Inc.. Very Good in Good dj. 1933. First Edition. Hardcover. NOISBN . (price-clipped) [light wear to book at extremities, slightly uneven fading to cloth, vintage bookshop label on rear pastedown (from The Drama Book Shop, N.Y.); jacket is edgeworn and a bit faded, with a fingernail-sized chip at top right corner of front panel, some scuffing to spine, slight paper loss at top of spine (no loss of text), a few tiny edge-tears]. SIGNED by the three stars of the original Broadway production -- Lynn Fontanne, Alfred Lunt and Noël Coward himself -- next to their corresponding names in the Characters list (Gilda, Otto and Leo). "A gleaming and witty satire on the strange complexities of love among artists," and a naughty scandal in its day -- too risque, it was thought, for the British censors and thus unproduced in London for another six years following its American premiere. (What would it take to shock "the public" comparably these days, I wonder? Probably impossible, actually.) Director Ernst Lubitsch and screenwriter Ben Hecht did their best with the Hollywood adaptation, but even though the Production Code wouldn't be fully in force until the following year there was only so much they could do; they pretty much had to rewrite the entire story. (Coward once remarked of the film version: "I'm told that there are three of my original lines left in the film, [including] 'Pass the mustard.'") The movie, of course, had movie stars -- Frederic March and Gary Cooper played the Coward and Lunt roles respectively, although even the character names were changed: the play's "Leo" and "Otto" became "Tom" and "George" in the film. (Miriam Hopkins was the lady in the ménage.) Signed by Author .

        Black Mountain College 1933-1934

      Black Mountain, North Carolina: Black Mountain College. 1933. Stapled wrappers. [24]pp. Some glue remnants at the top of the front wrap from the original mailing envelope, and some oxidation at the staples, else near fine. The first catalog distributed for this highly influential college presenting class schedules, faculty and students, as well as general information about admissions and campus activities. With a foreword stating: "Black Mountain College was founded in order to provide a place where free use might be made of tested and proved methods of education and new methods tried out in a purely experimental spirit." And boy was that ever an understatement. Black Mountain was home to a generation of artists who thrived on its innovative course structure and teaching methods which supported the idea that work and play are interchangeable, and that practical responsibility is essential for student development. Numbered among its students and faculty were John Cage, Willem de Kooning, Charles Olson, Buckminster Fuller, Robert Rauschenberg, Robert Creeley, Ben Shahn, John Rice, Josef Albers, and Merce Cunningham, to name only a few. An early document from a college that became one of the most influential liberal arts schools of the 20th Century and the prototype for the modern alternative colleges found today. OCLC locates two copies. .

        The Young and Evil

      Obelisk Press, Paris 1933 - First edition, trade issue. Self-wrappers. Brown butcher paper wrappers printed in red. A very handsome very near fine copy with a light wrinkle on the rear wrap. A notorious and exceptionally scarce impressionistic and joyous novel of homosexual life in Greenwich Village. Parker met Ford while writing for Ford's amateurishly produced *Blues* magazine, which was published in Ford's parents' home in Mississippi during 1929-30. Tyler encouraged him to move to New York and there they spent a year exploring the gay subcultures of Greenwich Village and Harlem before writing the book. Considered by some to be the first modern "out" gay novel, it was turned down by several mainstream publishers, until being championed by Gertrude Stein when it finally found a home with the obscure Paris-based imprint Obelisk Press, an English language publishing house specializing in the erotic and outre. Stein called this book "The novel that beat the Beat Generation by a generation." The front flap of the self-wrapper has blurbs by Stein and Djuna Barnes; according to G. Thomas Tanselle in his 1971 paper "Book-Jackets, Blurbs, and Bibliographers" (citing another source) this was the only wrapper blurb contributed by Stein during her lifetime, and possibly the only one from Barnes as well. The trade issue was estimated to have been about 2500 copies, of which at least 500 were seized and burned by British customs. There was also an issue of 50 copies on different paper, signed by Ford.

        Vintage Snapshot Photograph of the Babe and the Duke on Waikiki Beach

      Small vintage snapshot photograph of Babe Ruth and Duke Kahanamoku on Waikiki Beach. 4.5" x 2.75". Mounted on a black album page and presumably removed from an album. Near fine. The photo depicts both sports legends in bathing suits, standing with paddles in front of an outrigger canoe. In the background, another Hawaiian man brandishes a paddle (left-handed, as the Babe would do) and appears to be about to swat both of the legends in the back of the head. The two met in 1933 or 1934 when Ruth accompanied a barnstorming team that included Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, and Lefty Gomez. We have seen other copies of this photograph, so assume that it achieved some modest distribution in Hawaii. .

        The River War

      Eyre & Spottiswoode, London 1933 - This is the first printing of the bibliographically significant 1933 edition of Churchill's second book in the scarce original dust jacket. Originally published in 1899, The River War recounts Churchill's experiences and reflections concerning British involvement in the Sudan. The text is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. As a young officer in a colonial British army, Churchill was unusually sympathetic to the Mahdist forces and critical of the British army. This work offers us the candid perspective of the future great man of the 20th century from the distinctly 19th century battlefields where Churchill learned to write and earned his early fame. In 1933, a so-called "Second Cheap Edition" was made from plates of the 1902 edition with a bibliographically significant new introduction by the author explaining that "A generation has grown up which knows little of why we are in Egypt and the Sudan." There were ultimately five printings of this edition. Here is the first printing of 1933, a near-fine plus copy in a good example of the scarce dust jacket, which is unique to the 1933 first printing. The light purple cloth binding of this edition proved highly susceptible to wear and soiling. Here the binding is square, clean, and tight, retaining uniform color, sharp corners, nicely rounded spine, and showing none of the usual scuffing. Slight wrinkling at the spine ends and perhaps a hint of darkening at the spine head corresponding with the dust jacket loss are the only trivial exterior flaws noted. The contents are crisp and bright, the book feeling unread. Differential transfer browning to the blank endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps confirms that this book has spent its life jacketed. We note no internal spotting or previous ownership marks. Very light spotting is confined to the fore and top edges and the top edge also shows dust soiling. The dust jacket is a respectable and mostly complete example. The only significant dust jacket loss is a 1.5 inch wide by maximum .375 inch strip at the spine head. The jacket spine is toned and scuffed, but both the blue and black spine print remain distinct. The jacket faces show modest wear and a few short closed tears at the edges, as well as light overall soiling, heaviest at the flap folds. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A2.4.a, Woods/ICS A2(da.1), Langworth p.33. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      London - 1933 - 1966. (Lacking only three issues - 415, 466, 471). An amazing, highly unusual long run of this diverse publication. Volumes 1 - 18 are clothbound, slightly marked and faded but very sound; the rest are in original parts, a few minor imperfections, but overall very good. A quick glance through quickly shows the range of articles : The Use of Statistics (1934). The Fuel problem (1935). The State of the Highlands (1936). The Health Services (1937). The Control of Rivers (1938). London Under Bombing (1941). Refugees in Britain (1944). The Unmarried Mother (1946). Employment of Women. The Opera in Britain (both 1948). The Football Industry. The Gramophone Record - industry and art. (both 1951). Social Security and Unemployment in Lancs (1951). Progress of the Gas Turbine (1953). The Menace of Air Pollution (1954). Graduate Wives (1954). The Cricket Industry (1956). Prospects for Nuclear Power (1959). Young Europeans in England. Housing Associations. Cartel Policies and the Common Market (all 1962). The Parliament of the European Communities (1964). [From the library of the naturalist and conservationist Richard Fitter, whos was a member of PEP for four of its early years.]Political and Economic Planning (PEP) was a British policy think tank, formed in 1931 in response to Max Nicholson's article A National Plan for Britain published in February of that year in Gerald Barry's magazine The Week-End Review. The original members included Nicholson and Barry, the zoologist Julian Huxley, the agronomist Leonard Elmhirst, the financier Sir Basil Blackett, the civil servants Dennis Routh and Sir Henry Bunbury, the research chemist Michael Zvegintzov, and Israel Sieff, a director of Marks & Spencer. Sieff was Chairman in the 1930s, followed by Elmhirst in 1939 and by Nicholson in 1953. It was a non-governmental planning organisation financed by corporations. This prolific organisation was influential in the formation of the National Health Service, World War II and post-war planning, and the development of the African colonies. After the war it shared the offices of The Nature Conservancy in Belgrave Square, London, producing reports such as Opportunities in Industry (1957) and Advisory Committees in British Government (1960). In 1978 PEP merged with the Centre for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP), and became the Policy Studies Institute (PSI). [VERY HEAVY - POSTAGE WILL NEED TO BE INCREASED.] [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Published by the author. Jacksboro. 1933 - This is an example of the exceedingly scarce history of The West Texas Frontier written by Joseph Carroll McConnell and published by him in 1933.

My review of auction records determined that only four copies of this book have come up for auction in the last twenty years--very scarce indeed.
