        Gabriel Over the White House (Original Draft MGM script of the novel's text)

      Los Angeles: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1933. An early draft, in script format, of the 1933 novel, "Gabriel Over the White House," written by Thomas Frederic Tweed. This draft was developed the same year into the 1933 pre-code film directed by Gregory LaCava, written for the screen by Carey Wilson, and starring Walter Huston, Franchot Tone, and Jean Parker. & & The novel is in "script" format produced by MGM after the studio optioned the rights to the book in 1932 (prior to publication). Tweed's novel was first published as "Rinehard" in the UK in 1933, then in the US the same year as "Gabriel Over the White House" (but with the author's name replaced as "Anonymous," probably for sensational effect). William Randolph Hearst took a strong interest in the comic novel's unique political tone (which has since been variously described as promoting socialism, national socialism, and fascism) and provided financial backing to purchase the option on the book and have MGM produce it. The resulting pre-Code film has remained controversial since the time of its release, widely acknowledged to be totalitarian propoganda in the guise of a comic fantasy. In the story, a Warren G. Harding-esque partisan hand-shaker becomes President of the United States, and after seeing a vision, revokes the Constitution, becomes a reigning dictator, and solves all the nation's problems. MGM studio president Louis B. Mayer disagreed with and somewhat feared the film's wild political sentiments, and as an acknowledged supporter of Hoover's second term, held up release until after the Hoover-FDR election in the fall of 1932 (for all the good it did). & & Light blue studio wrappers, with the white MGM title label (rubber-stamped project No. 584), dated January 6, 1933. Title page present, with credits for the US publisher Farrar and Rinehart, and in keeping with the publication precedent of that edition, no mention of the author's name. 282 leaves, mimeograph. Pages and wrapper Very Good plus, bound with two tarnished gold brads.

        The River War

      London: Eyre & Spottiswoode, 1933. Hardcover. As new/Fine. This is an improbably pristine jacketed copy of the second printing of the 1933 edition. Though we are generally wary of words like "mint" and "as new", we can say with confidence that this must surely be the best surviving example. Churchill's second book, originally published in 1899, recounts his 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 with at least seven different dust jackets issued (at least two for the 1933 second printing and two for the final, 1951 printing). The style of the illustrated first printing dust jacket was unique to the first printings (January 1933) and an unknown number of second printings (March 1933). This beautiful, jacketed copy of the second printing is not only extraordinary for its condition, but also of bibliographic interest. In his excellent Bibliography, Ronald Cohen notes that "although only 985 copies were ever sold" of this second printing, these copies "were bound only gradually, on 14 separate occasions between 31 March and 29 February 1940." Cohen notes that "this extended sale and large number of binding occasions would account for differences of cloth or dust jackets on second printing copies." (Cohen, Volume I, p.54) Here is what surely must be an early issue example of the second printing, since it bears the first printing-style dust jacket. Of the second impression, Richard Langworth (Connoisseur's Guide, p.34-35) does note "This impression has been found in a jacket identical to the first impression, adding 'net' to the spine price." This copy's dust jacket does have the word 'net' on the spine below the price and the book itself references the additional 1933 printing on the copyright page. Additionally, the binding cloth is a distinctly lighter and brighter shade of light purple than that of the first printing. As stated, this is an improbably superlative copy, nearly as new in a truly fine dust jacket. The illustrated dust jacket is simply stunning - beautifully crisp, bright, and complete, with only fractional wear to a few extremities and a nearly invisible short closed tear at the upper rear hinge. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. The volume beneath is immaculate and clearly unread. The cloth of the 1933 printings proved highly susceptible to wear, soiling, and toning. This copy features a flawless binding with no visible signs of wear or handling. The contents are likewise pristine - crisp, bright, and tight with no previous ownership marks and no spotting. The owner of this copy will know they have the best possible copy attainable without a time machine. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A2.4.b, Woods/ICS A2(da.2), Langworth p.33.

        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. A desirable edition, and the best to read other than a first. This edition uses the setting of the 1902 edition so is abridged. There are 22 maps, many folding and some in two colours. Bound in lilac cloth, blocked in black on the spine only. 381 pages, index, appendices. This edition adds a new introduction from Churchill. Book is clean with a firm binding, some minor rubbing on the spine and some wear on the bottom edges. Owner name on endpaper dated Feb 1933. Page edges even with some scattered spots. Contents clean with maps neatly folded. Dustwrapper is clean with good white spine, some edge wear and tears, and a small piece gone at base of spine. (A2da). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The River War

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1933. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good. Here is the U.S. first edition of Churchill's second book in the striking original dust jacket. The River War recounts his 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 Imperial cynicism and cruelty. The River War offers the candid perspective of the future great man of the 20th century in the distinctly 19th century battlefields where Churchill learned to write and earned his early fame. Here is the elusive first U.S. edition. In 1933 a new edition was issued in both England and the U.S. 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." Here is a collector-worthy copy, near-fine in a very good dust jacket. This is one of just 1,040 U.S. first edition copies issued. Per Richard Langworth (p.35), binding was probably done in England, using English sheets and a Scribner's title page cancel, since copies are bound in the identical lilac cloth as the Eyre & Spottiswoode edition of the same year. However, the dust jacket is unique to this U.S. first edition, printed in red and black bearing R. C. Woodville's dramatic illustration of the Charge of the 21st Lancers. The light purple cloth, which scuffs and soils so easily, is tight, clean, and square, with sharp corners. Light wear is confined to the bottom edge and corners and there is a slight vertical crease to the otherwise nicely rounded spine. The contents are crisp, clean, and bright. We find no spotting. The sole previous ownership mark is a name inked to the ffep. The page edges are clean and bright, including the untrimmed fore edge. The dust jacket is unclipped, retaining the original $2.75 front flap price. The dust jacket is highly complete, with negligible chipping at the head of the spine and a little wear at hinges and corners. The vertical red rule on the spine - typically quite faded - remains respectably bright. We note minor creasing at the lower panel corners and some light soiling. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A2.5, Woods/ICS A2(db), Langworth p.35

        Original Wanted Notice for Thomas H. Robinson on the Charge of Kidnapping

      Washington, Division of Investigation, U. S. Department of Justice, Identification Order No. 1233, October 16, , 1933. Singlesheet (200 × 200 mm) printed both sides on heavy paper/light card stock. Two mug-shots, full-face and right profile, full set of prints, and sample signature, text consists of paragraphs titled "Description," "Relatives" (where his co-conspirator wife and father are listed) and "Criminal Record." Verso contains a mailing panel and list and list of Department of Justice offices. Pristine condition, never folded for mailing. In October 1934 this Nashville criminal abducted Alice Speed Stoll, granddaughter of a prominent Louisville businessman and philanthropist, from suburban Louisville and held her captive in an apartment in Indianapolis while negotiating a $50,000 ransom. Robinson was a transvestite, and law enforcement officers had a difficult time tracking him down, as he was able to indulge in two of his favourite pastimes at the same time - wearing his wife's clothes and evading the police. Finally captured, he was sentenced to life imprisonment, his wife and father were also implicated but acquitted, and in 1943 Robinson won the right to a new trial, but this time was sentenced to death for the kidnapping. This high-profile case briefly captured the public's attention, but was superseded by the higher-profile Lindbergh kidnapping case and the trial of Richard Bruno Hauptmann. Unmarked as such but from the collection of noted Lincoln and Civil War scholar Arnold Gates (1914-93).

        PRELUDE TO A MILLION YEARS: A BOOK OF WOOD ENGRAVINGS

      New York: Equinox,. 1933. original decorated black boards with gold foil shelf back, sewn.. String tie broken, a bit of offset from patterned boards on the. endpapers, a nearly fine copy. Lacks the foil slipcase. (#148168). First edition. Limited to 920 copies signed by Ward. This is copy number 595. The fourth of Ward's six wordless novels. "Ward is known for his wordless novels told entirely through dramatic wood engravings ... Ward, in employing the concept of the wordless pictorial narrative, acknowledged as his predecessors the European artists Frans Masereel and Otto Nückel ... The wordless novel has its origin in the German Expressionist movement of the early 20th century. The typically socialist work drew inspiration from mediaeval woodcuts and used the awkward look of that medium to express angst and frustration at social injustice. The first such book was the Belgian Frans Masereel's 25 IMAGES OF A MAN'S PASSION, published in 1918. Other artists, such as the German Otto Nückel, followed Masereel's example. Lynd Ward brought the genre to the United States in 1929 when he produced GODS' MAN, which inspired other American wordless novels and was parodied in 1930 by cartoonist Milt Gross in HE DONE HER WRONG. Following an early-1930s peak in production and popularity, the genre waned in the face of competition from sound films and anti-socialist censorship in Nazi Germany and the US. In 1926, the American Lynd Ward (1905-1985) moved to Leipzig to study graphic arts; while there, he discovered the works of Masereel and Otto Nückel. He produced six such works of his own; he preferred to call them "pictorial narratives". The first, GODS' MAN (1929), was his most popular. Ward used wood engraving rather than woodcutting and varied image sizes from page to page. GODS' MAN sold 20,000 copies, and other American artists followed up on this success with their own wordless novels in the 1930s ... The popularity of wordless novels peaked around 1929 to 1931 ... Many wordless novels remained out of print until the rise of the graphic novel revived interest among readers and publishers in the early 21st century ... Interest in the wordless novel revived with the rise of the graphic novel. Comics fans discussed the works of Masereel and others in fanzines, and the discussions turned to talk of the Great American Novel being made in comics. These discussions inspired cartoonist Art Spiegelman (1942- ) who in 1973 made a four-page strip, 'Prisoner on the Hell Planet,' in an Expressionist style inspired by Ward's work. Spiegelman later incorporated the strip into his graphic novel MAUS. Eisner called Ward 'perhaps the most provocative graphic storyteller' of the 20th century." - Wikipedia. Library of America reprinted Ward's six wordless novels as a two-volume set in 2010.

A compilation of Cummings' anatomical sketches, showing the artist/poet at work perfecting the rendering of the human form, beginning with a basic seven-segment stick figure and proceeding through the bones of the face and the bones and muscles of the upper and lower limbs (sometimes modeled from cut-out magazine pictures) and often with the body parts labeled and his intention stated on the page ("1 shoulder higher, arm on hip"). 35 pages of pencil sketches; a half dozen or so with images on both sides of the page; approximately a third of them with Cummings' annotations. Roughly two-thirds of the works are studies of women, in keeping with Cummings' predominantly female output (when rendering humans; otherwise landscapes may prevail). Most are upper torso sketches, with an emphasis on shoulders, but there are several full-body drawings, both male and female. Cummings considered writing and art his "twin obsessions" and early in his career he was as well known for his artwork as for his poetry. He exhibited in a number of international shows; was art director for the modernist journal The Dial, to which he also contributed his own drawings; and he published a signed limited edition of some of his artwork in 1933 entitled CIOPW, the initials of his chosen media for art: charcoal, ink, oil, pencil and watercolors. In the 1930s, Cummings dropped out of the New York art scene and, although he continued to draw and paint until he died, his artwork was primarily private, and his career as an artist was largely forgotten by the public. When he died, he left some 1600 pieces of art to his estate. These drawings show Cummings working on the craft of one of his two "obsessions," meticulously and systematically learning human anatomy as an underpinning for his paintings. A nice example of a group of related works that shed light on the artist's seriousness of purpose, and his mastery of the subject. All are on 8-1/2" x 11" sketchbook paper. Some have been cut out and assembled together on a page (presumably by Cummings). One corner cut out is absent; a couple of pages have small chips or tears; but in all the lot is near fine or better. .

        2 autograph letters signed.

      Baden and n. p., 15. VIII. 1933 and undated ("Freitag"). - Zusammen 4 SS. auf 2 Bll. 4to. Both letters to the collector Tony Kirchhoff in Wiesbaden, written from a cure in Baden, Switzerland. Besides some impressions from his cure, Jawlensky writes from an exhibition he has seen at Zurich ("a wonderful exhibition (French painters): Renoir, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Goguin, Monet, Delakroa, Corot and others. Amazing. But their prices have become so cheap [.]" (15. VIII. 1933; transl. from the German original), and from future plans. - In his undated letter, he writes from a trip to Basel, where he was organizing an exhibition of his paintings, and attended an exhibtion of Marcel Gromaire. - Jawlensky was in a very close relationship with the Wiesbaden art collectors Heinrich and Tony Kirchhoff, and his relationship with Tony actually became so intensive that it ended up in a sexual intercourse that led to break up with Kirchhoff.

        Marlborough: His Life and Times, full set of six U.S. first edition, first printings in the rare first state dust jackets and slipcases

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1933-1938. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Very good. Here is a full set of six U.S. first edition, first printings in the rare first state dust jackets and slipcases. Winston Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough took 10 years of research and writing and is the most substantial published work of Churchill's "wilderness years" in the 1930s. The first volume was published in 1933, with the final volume published in 1938 on the eve of the Second World War. Richard Langworth says "To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough." The British first edition was issued in four volumes. The U.S. publisher chose to split the first two volumes into two books each, resulting in a six volume set that is otherwise identical in content to the British. The first four U.S. volumes were originally issued in two-volume sets, with cream-colored dust jackets featuring green print. The fifth volume was originally issued in a white dust jacket with a red-printed design matching that of the two slipcases for volumes I & II and volumes III & IV. Only in 1938, when the sixth and final U.S. volume was published, were the more commonly seen blue and gold dust jackets issued. Today the first state dust jackets are quite scarce, and the fragile original slipcases doubly so. This is a full, first state set comprising truly fine first printing volumes in very good or better dust jackets with the two publisher's slipcases. All six volumes feature immaculate green cloth bindings and bright contents with absolutely no spotting and no inscriptions. The first four volumes are virtually as-new with especially bright page edges, having been protected by both their original dust jackets and the slipcases. All six dust jackets are unclipped. The cream-colored dust jackets of the first four volumes all show uniform toning to the spines and some modest chipping, mostly at the spine ends. The Volume V dust jacket is highly complete with fractional chipping at the spine ends and some toning of the spine. The Volume VI dust jacket remains bright and highly complete with some wrinkling at the spine ends, a small chip to the upper front corner, and some vertical creasing to the front face. All six dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. The Volumes I & II slipcase is bright and complete, but separating at the upper right, right rear, and lower right seams. There is a small, faint pencil notation on the slipcase spine that may be previous bookseller pricing. The volume III & IV slipcase is complete with some soiling to the top edge, wear at the opening edges, and separation at the upper right, right rear, and lower right seams. Please anticipate the possibility of additional postage costs for this large, heavy, set, which we will pack with care. Bibliographic reference: A97.4(I-VI).a, Woods/ICS A49(ba), Langworth p.169

        Gabriel Over the White House (Original Draft MGM script of the novel's text)

      Los Angeles: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1933. An early draft, in script format, of the 1933 novel, "Gabriel Over the White House," written by Thomas Frederic Tweed. This draft was developed the same year into the 1933 pre-code film directed by Gregory LaCava, written for the screen by Carey Wilson, and starring Walter Huston, Franchot Tone, and Jean Parker. The novel is in "script" format produced by MGM after the studio optioned the rights to the book in 1932 (prior to publication). Tweed's novel was first published as "Rinehard" in the UK in 1933, then in the US the same year as "Gabriel Over the White House" (but with the author's name replaced as "Anonymous," probably for sensational effect). William Randolph Hearst took a strong interest in the comic novel's unique political tone (which has since been variously described as promoting socialism, national socialism, and fascism) and provided financial backing to purchase the option on the book and have MGM produce it. The resulting pre-Code film has remained controversial since the time of its release, widely acknowledged to be totalitarian propoganda in the guise of a comic fantasy. In the story, a Warren G. Harding-esque partisan hand-shaker becomes President of the United States, and after seeing a vision, revokes the Constitution, becomes a reigning dictator, and solves all the nation's problems. MGM studio president Louis B. Mayer disagreed with and somewhat feared the film's wild political sentiments, and as an acknowledged supporter of Hoover's second term, held up release until after the Hoover-FDR election in the fall of 1932 (for all the good it did). Light blue studio wrappers, with the white MGM title label (rubber-stamped project No. 584), dated January 6, 1933. Title page present, with credits for the US publisher Farrar and Rinehart, and in keeping with the publication precedent of that edition, no mention of the author's name. 282 leaves, mimeograph. Pages and wrapper Very Good plus, bound with two tarnished gold brads.
