        The River War (An Historical Account of the Reconquest of the Sudan)

      Eyre & Spottiswoode, London, 1933 - Copyright page identifies this as ?first cheap edition?, but actually it is the second, as there was also a really cheap little edition in 1915.

Bound in lilac cloth, blocked in black on the spine only. 381 pages, index, appendices. This edition adds a new introduction from Churchill.

        Presenting Lily Mars

      Doubleday Doran, Garden City 1933 - First edition. A small stain on the copyright page (and the facing dedication page), a little smudging to the boards, a near fine copy in a partially price-clipped, very good plus dustwrapper with a small chip at the crown and light edgewear. Nicely Inscribed by the author to his close friend, and occasional co-author, Harry Leon Wilson: "For H.L., who may be reminded of something or somebody, here and there --- N.B.T. Aug. 26, 1933. Kennebunkport." Interestingly, Tarkington signs using his true first initial "N" for his real first name "Newton," which he seldom did -- perhaps he did so as a lighthearted jab at Wilson, who often went by the name "H. Leon Wilson." The novel was bought by MGM as a dramatic vehicle for Lana Turner, but the script turned out to be too lighthearted and Norman Taurog's 1943 film version was instead a musical, showcasing Judy Garland as the small-town girl who impresses Broadway producer Van Heflin. A great association copy: Tarkington and Wilson collaborated on a number of plays early in their careers, several of which were filmed, probably most notably, *The Man From Home* in 1914 (and re-filmed again in 1922), one of the earliest feature films directed by Cecil B. De Mille. Another collaboration was *Cameo Kirby*, filmed first in 1914, but most notably by John Ford in 1923 with John Gilbert, Alan Hale, and Jean Arthur. Wilson, who was married to Rose O'Neill (creator of the Kewpie Doll), wrote several other books that were filmed, including *Merton of the Movies, Ruggles of Red Gap*, and *Bunker Bean*. Over sixty films were made from Tarkington's works, including *The Magnificent Ambersons.* See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        FOUR POEMS BY JOHN MILTON: L'ALLEGRO, IL PENSEROSO, ARCADES, LYCIDAS

      The Gregynog Press, Newtown, Wales 1933 - 264 x 171 mm (10 3/8 x 6 3/4"). 33 pp., [1] leaf (colophon). No. 172 OF 235 COPIES (of a total of 250, including 15 bound in morocco). Publisher's reddish-brown Hermitage calf, upper cover blocked in blind with titling, press device, and the figure of Euphrosyne, one of the Three Graces, designed by Blair Hughes-Stanton. WITH 11 WOOD ENGRAVINGS BY BLAIR HUGHES-STANTON, four of these full-page. Printed on Japanese vellum. Harrop 26. A hint of rubbing to leather, one tiny spot on spine, otherwise A VERY FINE COPY, immaculate internally. During a short space of time, from 1931-34, Blair Hughes-Stanton (1902-81) produced woodcuts for six memorable books issued by the Gregynog Press, and this collection of four early poems by Milton was, in Harrop's view, "merely a vehicle for displaying the illustrations," which feature figures from classical mythology depicted in the artist's distinctive erotic style. Hughes-Stanton (1902-81) studied at the school of Leon Underwood at Hammersmith and had a long and productive career producing sophisticated expressive woodcuts as an avant-garde artist. Although he was pressured to make his striking, sometimes even savage, images look more like those of Eric Gill, he resisted and successfully established his unique personal style as an illustrator. The type use here is the graceful Perpetua designed by Gill, who was, with Hughes-Stanton, one of the two central figures in the English wood engraving revival. Although Gill is the more recognized artist, he never approached Hughes-Stanton in terms of intricacy. While prone to abrasions, the "Four Poems" binding is described by Harrop as "one of the most sucessful to come from the Press.".

        HOLD YOUR MAN (1933)

      MGM 1933 - Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Clark Gable, Jean Harlow, dir: Sam Wood; MGM. Pre-Code sizzler written by Anita Loos specifically to high light the dramatic abilities of Jean Harlow. Though she is toned down from her previous work in RED DUST and RED HEADED WOMAN, she engages in some of the most sexually charged scenes of the time with Clark Gable, including a scene where they share the same bath water, walk around in their robes and share a torrid kiss within minutes of having met each other. He is a small time con, she falls in love with him, they have a baby (born in prison) and she goes to prison for his botched crime. Things do work out in the end of course! This was the third pairing for Gable and Harlow and they would go on to make two more films together. In this card, Harlow (swathed in Adrian finery despite her lower bracket income) visits Gable during his prison stint. Pinholes in corners, FINE.

Zuerst Mittelschulehrer in Bludenz, dann ab 1969 in Salzburg ansäßig. Befreundet mit Kubin und Fronius. Seine Federzeichnungen und Aquarelle verweben verschrobene Dorf- und Kleinstadtpoesie, soziales Mitgefühl und skurrilen Humor zu einer ganz eigenen Welt. (Zitat nach Salzburger Kulturlexikon, S. 442). - Frey, (1881 -1957), studierte in Heidelberg, Freiburg/Breisgau und München Jura und Philosophie, ohne seine Studien abzuschließen. Seit 1918 war er als freier Schriftsteller in München ansässig. Während des Ersten Weltkriegs diente er im selben Regiment wie Hitler, der ihm später eine Stelle als Feuilletonchef des "Völkischen Beobachters" anbot, was F. jedoch ablehnte. 1933 wurden seine Bücher verboten, er emigrierte zunächst nach Österreich, 1938 in die Schweiz, wo der Freund Thomas Manns lange Zeit unter ärmlichen Umständen als Rezensent lebte. Erst nach 1945 besserte sich seine Lage, nachdem einige seiner im Exil entstandenen Werke erschienen waren. F. schrieb Romane, Novellen, Märchen und Utopien. Als bizarr, skurril und phantastisch werden viele seiner Geschichten charakterisiert, die häufig mit parodistischen Elementen und hintergründigem Humor angereichert sind. Sein dokumentarisch-autobiographischer Roman Die Pflasterkästen (1929) zählt zu den bedeutenden Antikriegsromanen der Weimarer Republik. (DBE) - Hier ein nicht veröffentlichtes Projekt zu A. M. Frey's Roman.
