        ALICE IN WONDERLAND (Superb Copy of the 1933 English Film Photoplay Version in Original Dust Jacket,)

      London & Glasgow: Collins, 1933. Carroll, Lewis (Charles L[utwidge] Dodgson). ALICE IN WONDERLAND. London & Glasgow: Collins, (n. d. but 1933). First U. K. Photoplay edition (9" by 7") issued in tandem with the 1933 Paramount film adaptation starring Charlotte Henry as Alice and co-starring Cary Grant, W. C. Fields, and Gary Cooper among others. This is a Very Good example, designed with wonderful Art Deco elements to it, with light staining and soiling to both the fragile oatmeal-buckram cloth covers as well as the spine; all in all, the effect is bit blotchy but the volume nevertheless retains eye appeal. Inside the book, there are eight b&w full-page still photos from the film along with numerous charming line drawings by Irene Mountfort. The Very Good ORIGINAL DUST JACKET partially incorporates photographic images from the film including that of Charlotte Henry with the Dodo. The DJ is flap-clipped but not price-clipped. Perhaps best of all, the dust jacket is 100% complete although there is some soil and a long closed tear to the white back panel, and overall edge-wear in general. Despite faults, the exceedingly rare DJ shows beautifully. . First Thus. Decorative Cloth. Very Good/Very Good. Illus. by Irene Mountfort.

        Paris de Nuit (First Edition)

      Paris: Arts et Métiers Graphiques, 1933. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Soft cover. Very Good. This is a first edition, first printing of Brassai\'s acclaimed masterpiece, \"Paris de Nuit\" published by Arts et Métiers Graphiques, Paris in 1933. Writing in The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century, Andrew Roth wrote \" ... with 64 rich full-page photogravures capturing his unforgettable \"social fantastic\" vision of Paris, \"Paris de Nuit combines the luxe and the louche. Its graphic design is sophisticated and its photogravure reproductions so rich that the sooty blacks still look like they\'ll rub off the page. Paul Morand, novelist, diplomat, and, later, persona non grata for his collaboration with the Vichy government, gets the cover\'s most prominent credit for his essay here, but Brassaï\'s photos are the book\'s real meat. Brassaï became a master at drawing luminosity from the darkness. [This work has] lost none of its dark glamour or film noir grit\". \"The book created a sensation when it was published; many pictures from the series were deemed too risqué and were not exhibited or published for decades, until the 1976 sequel, The Secret Paris of the 1930s. The first book set [Brassaï] on a lucrative and prolific career\" (McDarrah, 55). Measuring approximately 10 x 8 inches, the book is wire spiral bound in photographically illustrated fragile wrappers. The condition of the book is Very Good+ with creases and rubs to the front and rear wraps. The spiral wire is in great shape with very minimal paper loss to the tips of the corners near the spiral. The internals are in Very Good+ condition with no foxing or signs of previous ownership. Overall, this is a highly desirable copy of a notoriously fragile masterpiece that is rarely found in this condition. Cited in all three reference works on photobooks: The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century by Andrew Roth, The Photobook: A History by Parr and Badger, and The Open Book by Andrew Roth.

        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.

TITLES: The titles on these volumes vary. The first two are "Modern Psychology" but the other four are entitled "The Process of Individuation" with subtitles in the final three volumes as follows: Volume IV: Exercitia spirititualia of St. Ignatius of Loyola [not present here]; Volume V: Alchemy.

Barbara Hannah and Elizabeth Welsh were responsible for the editing of the first two volumes .Also included is the standard "restrictions page" which here reads: "This Report is multigraphed for private circulation only. No part can be quoted for publication under any circumstances whatsoever." Each volume is an original Multigraph copy with the single-sided text bound using three large staples.

With the expected amount of wearing and some spotting to the spines (see photo) and the most minor of bumps to the exteriors.

        The Noble and Joyous Boke Entytled Le Morte D'Arthur

      Oxford: Shakespeare Head Press, 1933. Limited edition #369 of 370 copies. Bound in full red pigskin, the text printed in red and black on hand-made paper, with woodcuts from the 1498 edition, beautiful marbled end papers, page top edges gilt and fore- and bottom edges deckle-edged. Within the limited edition, this is a superior copy: only a few of this edition were bound in full pigskin, the remaining sets bound in half or three quarter leather. Laid in are the publisher's 4-page precis, and 4 trial pages, both on the same hand-made paper with the red and black printing of the text, and each with a woodcut from the text. These volumes are from the library of Barry Gaines, Malory and Shakespeare scholar, and author of Sir Thomas Malory: An Anecdotal Bibliography of Editions, 1485-1985. In near fine condition, with only slight wear to the corners of the covers. First published in 1485 by William Caxton, Le Morte d'Arthur is today perhaps the best-known work of Arthurian literature in English. Many modern Arthurian writers have used Malory as their principal source, including T. H. White in his popular The Once and Future King and Tennyson in The Idylls of the King.

      London: Gollancz, 1933. Wells, H. G. THE SCIENTIFIC ROMANCES OF H. G. WELLS. London: Gollancz, 1933. First Omnibus Edition, first printing. A Near Fine copy (only a few insignificant marks of abrasion to the boards) in a NEAR FINE COMPLETE AND UNRESTORED ORIGINAL DUST JACKET (spine panel a trifle age-toned as is usual with the Gollancz yellow dustwrappers of the era, a few very tiny blemishes, very likely removed whilst the volume was being read). This very first collected appearance of Wells' most famous novels appears in an 8vo volume which is 1,232 pages in size and thrice the thickness of the average book of the period (which might also explain why so few examples are still extant and why this is only the first copy in Dust Jacket that we've ever been able to offer for sale). This edition for the masses was likely short-printed, many may have perished in the pulping drives of WW2, but perhaps the likeliest explanation for its rarity is that, by the time the reader of the period finished all eight novels, the book was probably handled to death. For today's collector who may be disinclined to spend the fortune required to put together a set of the individual first edition volumes, this first Omnibus Edition may be an answer. Ironically the rarity lies here; one could find twenty first edition copies of The Time Machine or The Invisible Man before one could find a single example of this scarce and desirable First Omnibus Edition, especially one in such superb collector's condition. . First Edition Thus. Near Fine/Near Fine.

        QUEEN CHRISTINA (1933)

      USA 1933 - Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Greta Garbo, John Gilbert, Ian Keith, Lewis Stone, Elizabeth Young, C. Aubrey Smith, Reginald Owen, Cora Sue Collins, dir: Rouben Mamoulian; MGM. The pet project of Greta Garbo, who came out of a year of self imposed exile after refusing the poor scripts that MGM was attempting to saddle her with, to play the historic Queen of Sweden. Loyal and bound to her country when she experiences romance, she decides to give up her throne to follow her heart. This card depicts the scene in which she tells her people of her choice to abdicate. The card was once in an album, and there are light stains on back which do not show through at all, pinholes in outer image, one minor border chip, mended with archival paper, NEAR FINE.

      USA 1933 - Vintage original 14 x 22" (35 x 55 cm.) window card poster, USA. Feodor Chaliapin, Sr., George Robey, Oscar Asche, Miles Mander, Sidney Fox, dir: Georg Wilhelm Pabst; United Artists. The story of an elderly gentlemen in 16th century Spain who goes mad after reading too much about chivalry, claims himself a knight and sets out with a small entourage to revive that age. With songs, this version of the famous tale would later be realized as the musical "Man of La Mancha". Three versions were filmed for 3 different languages -- English, French and German -- with the famous Russian-born opera singer Feodor Chaliapin playing in all three versions, resulting in three somewhat different films. This work is one of the only times Chaliapin was captured on film. He is known to have been the first opera singer to concern himself with a believably-acted presentation of character. This card displays beautifully and has been cleaned and backed. There were some creases/tears in the "C" of "Chaliapin" which has had a bit of touch-up. An area in the top center has been addressed. An area at the bottom of the sword has also had a bit of touch-up and a tear at the center of Chaliapin's neck extending from the right edge has had a touch-up. An inner tear below the windmill has been addressed. A few minor edge creases have been smoothed out. VERY GOOD-FINE.

        HOLD YOUR MAN (1933)

      USA 1933 - Vintage original 22 x 28" (56 x 71 cm.) jumbo window 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 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. This poster was for the Palace Theater in Marion, Ohio. The historic theater was built in 1928 by John Eberson and is still a working legit stage and film house. Paper-backed to address very minor stains and wear, NEAR FINE.
