        Anatomical Sketchbook

      Undated. 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.

        Presenting Lily Mars

      Garden City: Doubleday Doran. 1933. First. 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. .

        The Novels and Plays of Saki. Complete in One Volume

      New York: The Viking Press. 1933. Stated "Second 'Omnibus' Volume." Rebound in blue half morocco gilt and papercovered boards, probably soon after publication. Spine expertly preserved, otherwise a nice near fine copy. This copy bears two identical examples of the armorial bookplate of Thomas Ruggles Pynchon (on both the pastedown and front fly), and was purchased by us some years back from a scout who purchased it at a tag sale at the author's parents' home. Presumably the bookplate was that of the author's father, also named Thomas Ruggles Pynchon. One could speculate at length about the effect of the spooky, fantastic tales of Saki on the young Pynchon, and indeed you are free to do so. We won't, but we are not above selling the book based on those conjectures. .

        Marlborough, His Life and Times, full set of finely bound British first editions

      London: George G. Harrap & Co, 1933-1938. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. 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 final volume was published on the eve of the Second World War. "To understand the Churchill of the Second World War, the majestic blending of his commanding English with historical precedent, one has to read Marlborough." (Richard Langworth, A Connoisseur's Guide to the Works of Sir Winston Churchill). The first edition of Marlborough was originally issued in four volumes between 1933 and 1938. Here is an excellent full set of four first edition, first printings sumptuously bound by the renowned Bayntun-Riviere bindery of Bath, England. The binding is half pebble-grain crimson morocco over red cloth boards. Features include raised spine bands, ruled panels, decorated compartments, leather corners, gilt ruled transitions, gilt top edges, head and foot bands, and marbled endpapers. Spine presentation is spectacular. The binding is in excellent, nearly as-new condition, showing only a few tiny corner bumps and a tiny scratch or two on the leather. The contents are worthy of the binding, being crisp, clean, bright and tight - and clearly never read. All maps, plans, and illustrations are present and pristine. There is no spotting whatsoever and no inscriptions or previous ownership markings of any kind. The gilt top edges remain bright and the fore edges are unusually bright as well, with none of the usual toning. The sole flaw detected is some minor staining on the fore edges of Volumes III and IV, which does not affect the text margins. Please note that this large, heavy set may require additional shipping costs. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A97.1.a, Woods/ICS A40(aa), Langworth p.166.

        The Young and Evil

      Obelisk Press Paris: Obelisk Press. (1933). First. First edition, limited issue. Self-wrappers. Brown butcher paper wrappers printed in red. A near very good copy with modest loss at the spine ends (affecting one letter in the title), and a few pages roughly opened caused chips in the margins, nevertheless a handsome and pleasing copy, lacking the extremely uncommon wraparound band. This copy is from the library of the Obelisk Press publisher Jack Kahane and is copy 6 of 50 numbered copies printed on Pure Rag Lafuma. While supposed to be signed by both authors, this copy is Signed by Ford only (as is the only other known copy of the limited issue of which we are aware). A notorious and exceptionally scarce 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 gay novel, Gertrude 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. .

        Marlborough: His Life and Times, full set of four British first edition, first printings in dust jackets

      London: George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., 1933. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good . This is a collector-worthy full set of four British first edition, first printings in first printing dust jackets. Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill, the first Duke of Marlborough, was initially conceived a full 40 years before publication of the fourth and final volume. Churchill originally considered the idea of the biography in 1898, returning to it in earnest in 1928. Marlborough ultimately took 10 years of research and writing and is the most substantial published work of Churchill's "wilderness years" in the 1930s. The final volume was published on the eve of the Second World War in 1938. 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 work was very well received, both critically and aesthetically. The first edition is a physically impressive production. The books measure 9.25 x 6.25 inches and are roughly 2 inches thick. Each is bound in plum cloth with beveled edges, the Marlborough coat of arms gilt on the front cover, and a gilt top edge. Moreover, each volume is profusely illustrated. Unfortunately, the plum cloth binding in Volumes I-III proved highly susceptible to sun fading. (A different, more fade-resistant dye was used in Volume IV.) Without the dust jackets, Volumes I-III are nearly always spine faded and jacketed first editions are now scarce. Particularly scarce are first printing dust jackets for Volumes I & II. We caution collectors to be wary of price-clipped dust jackets, as later impression Volume I & II dust jackets state either "2nd Impression" or "3rd Impression" printed next to the price on the lower front flap. No such problem applies to Volumes III & IV, which each had only a single printing. This full, four-volume British first edition set features volumes in near-fine or better condition with the accompanying dust jackets in very good plus or better condition. All four dust jackets retain the original front flap prices. The absence of either price-clipping or later impression notation on the lower Volume I & II front flaps definitively confirms first printing status. Moreover, this is a lifelong matched set. The sole previous ownership in each volume is the recurrence of either the same previous owner name or personal library numerical notation, each dated in the year of publication. These appear respectively on the ffep in Volumes I-III and the rear pastedown on Volume IV. Spine presentation and overall condition of the dust jackets makes this set superior to most jacketed first printing sets. All four dust jackets are highly complete, with only fractional chipping at the spine ends. The sole loss of note in the set is 1 x .5 inch at the upper front corner of Volume I. The jacket spines are toned, but evenly so across all four volumes, befitting a set that has remained intact since publication. All four dust jackets are fitted with removable, archival quality clear covers. All four volumes beneath the jackets feature clean, tight, and square bindings with nicely rounded spines, bright gilt, sharp corners, and virtually no wear. The complete dust jackets have done their job and spared the bindings from the typical sunning. Only a tiny spot at the upper rear hinge of Volume II shows mild sunning corresponding to a jacket chip loss. The contents of all four volumes are crisp, bright, and tight. All four volumes feel unread. The top edge gilt remains bright. Very light spotting appears limited to prelims and fore edges in volumes II-IV, with Volume I spotting a bit heavier to the fore edge, but internally affecting only the half-title, frontispiece, and title page.
