        The Dragon Murder Case

      Scribners 1933 - 1933 full cloth binding, 1st edition; inscribed and SIGNED by author. Binding fraggled at top of spine. Cloth is scraped and torn. Also some wear through to the board at bottom of spine. Two top corners bumped and a bit of a scrape through to the board there also. The covers in general have been subjected during 79 years to various minor events, only one of which, at the top of the spine, has been all that effective. There is a general fading of the red lettering on the cover and the spine. Book now has a brand-new facsimile of the original beautiful DJ. This book is not only signed by Van Dine, it is inscribed by him to J. L. WARNER, and the odds are great that this is Jack L. Warner of the Warner Brothers movie studio. The inscription, on a front flyleaf, reads: To J. L. Warner with sincere good wishes. S. S. Van Dine. The name J. L. Warner is underlined. These few words, one might say, represent a relationship that involved millions of dollars and probably hundreds of jobs, pointing to the various movies made by Jack Warner from Van Dine scripts and books, including this one. Photos of the book and the inscription available upon request. Also, an account of how or why this book arrived here, and an addition to its provenance, is available upon application to the seller.

        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. .

        God's Little Acre [Signed]

      New York: The Viking Press, 1933. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing (small rubs through to the bottom corners and tiny ones to the upper corners, spine ends worn, small stain to the top of the front pastedown and title page, scattered foxing, some staining to the rear pastedown and to the rear endpapers), lacking the scarce dust jacket (and protected by a facsimile thereof), SIGNED BY ERSKINE CALDWELL on the front free endpaper; Erskine Caldwell's fourth novel centered on a dysfunctional South Carolina farming family living near the Georgia border. The patriarch, Ty Ty Walden is obsessed with finding gold on his small farm and he and his two unmarried sons spend their working hours digging holes on the farm. Having pledged to donate the profits from any gold found on a designated acre of the farm, "God's Acre" to the church, but, fearful that he might find gold on "God's Acre", Ty Ty continually changes the acre covered by his pledge. His son-in-law, Will, worked in a nearby cotton textile mill from which the owner has locked out the workers after they demanded higher wages. Because of its sexually explicit scenes, the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice recommended that the appropriate prosecutor take action and he did so, bringing an action against both Caldwell and the Viking Press for disseminating pornography. Dozens of authors, editors, and critics spoke out in the novel's defense and, in one of the most important early rulings establishing authors' First Amendment rights to freedom of expression, the court ruled in favor of Caldwell and his Publisher. Signed copies of the first edition, first printing, as is herein described, are quite scarce. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY ERSKINE CALDWELL. QUITE SCARCE.

        Post Junior Detective Corps and the Melvin Purvis Junior G-Man Corps cereal premiums

      Battle Creek, Michigan: General Foods Corporation. 1933-1936. An archive of Post Junior Detective Corps and the Melvin Purvis Junior G-Man Corps cereal premiums, including 10 pamphlets, seven metal badges and original mailing envelope, all issued to consumers of Post Toasties, a popular breakfast cereal. Stapled wrappers with pencil owner name, wear at the extremities, a couple with loose sheets; five pamphlets with punch holes and attached by two ring binders; and badges of gold and silver metal, each measuring approximately 1.5" x 1.5" and ranging from lightly to moderately rubbed. Overall very good plus.The group is composed of "Junior G-Men" instructional booklets (with two duplicates); a casebook; a secret operations manual; promotional brochure of "swell prizes"; a form (apparently removed from another booklet) partially completed in pencil (and in earnest: "I take this solemn pledge as part of my service to the corps and the ideals for which it stands"); and seven pin-back badges issued as youngsters moved up the ranks from "Detective" to "Captain." The color brochure illustrates other premiums available in exchange for box-tops, including toy pistols, whistles, and the granddaddy of premiums, the "G-Man Squad Gun" with "rat-tat-tat-tat" sounds and "flint and steel sparking device." A wonderful reminder of simpler times when children were encouraged to follow the exploits of the F.B.I. as it hunted down criminals such as John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, and Pretty Boy Floyd -- and shot them dead. .

Hans Bernhard Merian's French translation of Michaelis's Fragen an eine Gesellschaft gelehrter Männer (1762), prepared during the early stages of Carsten Niebuhr's Danish expedition to the Middle East. It is the first edition in any language to be printed in the Netherlands. Johann David Michaelis, a famed German Orientalist and theologian, was one of the scholars who prompted the important Danish expedition to Egypt, Arabia and Syria (1761-1767), led by Carsten Niebuhr. Michaelis hoped to investigate the relationship of the southern Arabic dialects to Hebrew, and to verify obscure botanical and zoological information in the Bible. For this purpose he composed the present 100 "questions". It includes the instructions for the expedition by Frederick V of Denmark, a 35-page account of Yemen and an extract of Carsten Niebuhr's account of Arabia (not included in the first French edition of 1763). Back of first free endleaf with traces of removed bookseller's(?) ticket. With an occasional small rust spot, but otherwise in very good condition and only slightly trimmed, leaving large margins. Binding with minor suface damage and wear at the hinges and extremities, but otherwise also very good. Important preparatory studies concerning Egypt, Arabia and Syria, written and first published during the early stages of a voyage.

António Botto commented, "A @Presença oferece-nos como que uma vasta e estranha síntese literária . resultante dos destroços do simbolismo aristocrático Coimbrão, do saudosismo portuense, do paulismo e futurismo lisboetas, além de tudo o que respirasse liberdade, inclusive, ou sobretudo, a sexual" (quoted in Pires, p. 245).Successor to the modernist journal @Orpheu, it too published works by the leading figures in Portuguese literature, including Mário Sá-Carneiro, Fernando Pessoa, José Régio, Casais Monteiro, João Gaspar Simões, António de Sousa, Saul Dias, Branquinho da Fonseca, Almada Negreiros, Raul Leal, Alberto de Serpa, Irene Lisboa and Miguel Torga. It was responsible for introducing such foreign writers as Gide and Proust to Portuguese readers and for introducing the criticism of cinema as an art form; in addition, it emphasized contemporary music and the art of Cubists, Futurists, Primitivists and Expressionists.@Presença was directed by José Régio, João Gaspar Simões and Branquinho da Fonseca; Casais Monteiro later replaced Branquinho da Fonseca. Graphic contributors included Almada Negreiros, Júlio, Mário Elói, Dórdio Gomes, João Carlos, Sara Afonso, Arlindo Vicente, Paulo, Ventura Porfírio and Bernardo Marques.---- Daniel Pires, @DICIONARIO DA IMPRENSA PERIODICA LITERARIA PoRTUGUESA DO SECULO XX (1900-1940), pp. 289-94.

        Lilium Sargentiae

       A wonderfully detailed hand colored lithograph from Henry John Elwes  book ?A Supplement to Elwes' Monograph of the Genus Lilium?, published from 1933-1950. Overall this print is of superior quality on crisp white paper with dimensions of  14.5?x21.5?. Overall in very good condition with some light foxing/stainging/creasing.H. J. Elwes published the original ?Monograph of the Genus Lilium? in 1877-80.  In this monumental work a series of magnificent plates represented all the lilies at that time in cultivation in Great Britain. The illustrations were all drawn from living specimens. Elwes recognized that his work was incomplete, as many other species had still to be introduced into European cultivation. It was characteristic of his enthusiasm and energy that immediately on publication of his monograph he began the long and laborious task of collecting material for a supplement. This he pursued for many years, and although unfortunately he passed away before its completion. Arthur Grove, an associate working with Elwes to assemble material for the publication continued with the project. Grove had devoted a long life to the cultivation and study of lilies. Mr. D. Cotton, keeper of the Herbarium at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, was also instrumental to its publication as .was Lillian Snelling who illustrated the book. The result of these endeavors was a valuable supplement, which was produced in the same form as the original monograph.

        Autograph Letter signed ("Maurice Baring") to T. E. LAWRENCE

      Half-Way House / Steyning Road, Rottingdean, 4 october 1933. (LAWRENCE, T.E) 4to. 2 pp in ink on personal letterhead. Very good . Baring discusses the recent appearance of and furor over a new book on the WW I flying ace Albert Ball, [CAPTAIN ALBERT BALL VC DS, by RH Kiernan], which Baring considers "a noble tribute to a great boy. His father Sir Albert Ball Mayor of Nottingham, misreading it, has seen red & considers it a slander on his son and an insult to the RAF." Baring continues, "To me this is as if the Spartan fathers had considered Simonides' epitaph [on the fallen Spartans at the Battle of Thermopylae] ... a slur ... " Noting that Ball had spoken critically to the press about the book, Baring asks Lawrence if he might consider reading it and giving his opinion
