        Kärlek i tjugonde seklet.

      Dikter. Stockholm, P. A. Norstedt & söner, 1933. 111 s. Häftad. Dedikation till litteraturkritikern Elis Andersson. Mycket fint exemplar!. Med ett löst bilagt ersättningsblad med en annan version av dikten på s. 94. Elis Andersson (1888-1967) var under flera decennier litteratur- och teaterkritiker på "Göteborgs-posten". Denna bok recenserade han i mycket positiva ordalag tillsammans med Nils Ferlins "Barfotabarn" under rubriken "Två äkta poeter" den 11 november 1933. Gullberg är, skriver Andersson, "densamme som förr men också en annan. Formen är lika välansad, bara ännu smidigare. Men under denna klädnad slå pulsarna hårdare än förr. Det brinner en eld och en sinnlighet i hans vers, som man icke funnit tidigare. Utan att förlora klarheten har han låtit känslorna komma fram. Hans dikt har blivit rikare - samlingen är tvivelsutan hans starkaste hittills." Sedan apostroferar Andersson några enskilda dikter, särskilt "Kyssande vind", och sviten "Förklädd gud"

        Ultramarine

      London: Jonathan Cape. (1933). The first novel by the author of the 20th century classic Under the Volcano. An extremely scarce book: reportedly only 1500 copies were printed and barely half were sold. A "cheap edition" was issued in 1935 which was probably the unsold remainder of the first printing, offered at a reduced price. This title and Under the Volcano (#11 on the Modern Library's list of the best 100 books of the 20th century) were the only two books Lowry published in his lifetime; by the time of his postwar classic, this was already a scarce book. This is a near fine copy in a slightly edgeworn but still near fine still near fine dust jacket, with the original price still present. Extremely scarce in any dust jacket, and this is probably the nicest copy we have ever seen. A 20th century rarity in exceptional condition. In a custom clamshell box. . First Edition. Hardcover.

      Paris: Editions Denoel et Steele, Paris, 1933 Celine's legendary First Novel. Inscribed Presentation/ Association Copy of Some Significance. A very early reprint of the first edition published in 1932. 8vo, 18.5cm x 12cm. 623pp. A superb presentation inscribed to his friend, John Marks, who translated this very title into English the following year. A very good copy in a contemporary black buckram binding with titles on the spine in gilt on a maroon panel. There is some off-setting to the endpapers & the cheaper publisher's paper stock has lightly & evenly tanned. A faint stain to the fore-edge. The original card covers are not bound in. The presentation, on the first blank, reads: Johnny Marks from the author ~ May. 27. 1933. "Celine's Journey to the End of the Night (along with Death on the Installment Plan), were both very successful in the 1930s, & are unique: they come nearer than any other works of the century to creating the illusion of a living, infuriated, comic, vibrant voice. This voice comes off the pages.as though it were the pure real flux of a mind actively working." - (Martin Seymour-Smith in Novels and Novelists, 1980). A cornerstone of Modern World Literature, the publication of this work in 1932 had an immediate impact on author s of the period, such as Henry Miller (with Tropic of Cancer in 1934), George Orwell (with Down and Out in Paris and London in 1935), Henry Green & many others.

      NY: Robert O. Ballou. 1933. A presentation copy of the limited edition of this classic, with text by Peterkin and photographs by Ulmann. According to the colophon, 350 copies were numbered and signed, of which 327 were for sale. This is one of the 23 copies hors commerce, inscribed "For H.L.B." where the limitation number would have been, and signed by Peterkin and Ulmann. With 90 full-page stunningly produced copperplate hand-pulled photogravure plates, with tissue guards; the trade edition was not only a lower quality production, it only had 72 plates in total. The copies of the limited edition that were offered for sale came with a separate print of one of the photos and a slipcase. Neither is present here, and it is unknown if the hors commerce copies would have included such items, or if they were selling points intended to help market the commercial deluxe edition. Bound in brown textured paper over boards with white cloth spine and tips. Spine cloth slightly dusty, a hint of offsetting to the title page as the opposing photo lacks tissue; still a fine copy. We have never seen one of the hors commerce copies offered for sale, and none appear in the auction records. A scarce issue of a high spot of 20th century photography; a Roth 101 title. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        To A God Unknown

      New York: Robert O. Ballou. F/F. 1933. 1st Edition. Hardcover; 1st Printing. 10, 20. Signed and inscribed by author on postcard. 1st edition, 1st printing (copyright notice 'First Published 1933), $2.00 price intact on lower front dustjacket flap. Only 589 copies were printed by Ballou in 1933 and the book didn't have another printing till 1935 by Covici Friede (900 copies) and Heinemann in the U.K. This book is Fine, tight and unread, with no previous owner markings, no soiling, clean page edges and the black upper page edges are still very evenly dark black and unspotted. There's just a tiny bit of softening to the binding cloth at spine ends and a hint of bumping to upper binding corners to keep it from being As New. It is bound in light green cloth with gilt lettering on the spine. The dustjacket is also Fine with one tiny edge nick professionally repaired internally, slight darkening to the spine lettering but no fading of spine colors, a tiny area of surface wrinkling lower front panel that you can only see when held to the light at an angle. Otherwise, truly beautiful with no tears, chips or fading. Loosely laid into the book is a postcard written by Steinbeck in 1952, very clear signature and writing with quite a lengthy inscription to a young woman who was then collecting author signatures and involved in 4H activities. She had written Steinbeck about trying to win a trophy and he quotes her his favorite motto in both Spanish and English of 'If you don't want to fly beware of wings' in regard to winning trophies and he talks to her of 'food became more important than fame' and that he'd tried once to sell his trophy. The postcard was sent from Steinbeck's New York City 72nd St. address and has 'Steinbeck' as part of the printed address on that side. It is in Near Fine condition - a bit age-darkened, a few tiny toned toned spots, one corner tip that had been turned down at some point (no material loss), a tiny pin prick upper middle edge (looks like it was once pinned to a cork board) and a tiny crimp (no material loss) to the lower edge. The ink he wrote with is unfaded, clear and easy to read - excellent and personal example of Steinbeck's writing with the great inscription by him. It is safeguarded in a small clear archival plastic holder, and of course the dustjacket is in a removable, clear mylar dustjacket protecter to preserve condition. Truly rare in this condition examples of both Steinbeck's writing and of Steinbeck's 3rd book which is likely his most scarce book in collector condition. Even Cup Of Gold and Pastures Of Heaven had more copies printed than this one. ; 7-5/8" x 5"; 325 pages; Signed by Author .

        Hall of Famer Branch Rickey Signed Player’s Contract

      Partly Printed Document Signed “Branch Rickey” as Vice President of the St. Louis Cardinals, three pages, 8.5” x 11”, front and verso of two conjoined sheets. [St. Louis], December 29, 1933. Completed in type. Lightly soiled. Fine condition. Accompanied by an 8.75” x 4” envelope, colorful Cardinals logo in upper left, addressed to “Mr. Eugene Moore, / Lancaster, Texas,” postmarked St. Louis, Missouri, February 7, 1934. From a later communication with Moore. Forwarded from Lancaster, Texas, to Edwards, Mississippi, c/o S.L. Bryan. Opened at right removing part of postage stamp. National League of Professional Baseball Clubs Uniform Player’s Contract. In part, “ Parties. The St. Louis National Baseball Club herein called the Club, and Eugene Moore of Lancaster, Texas herein called the Player … the Club hereby employs the Player to render skilled service as a baseball player in connection with all games of the Club during the year 1934 … For the service aforesaid the Club will pay the Player an aggregate salary of $3000.00…” Branch Rickey (1881-1965) was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1967. His HOF plaque is engraved: “Founder of Farm System which he developed for St. Louis Cardinals and Brooklyn Dodgers. Copied by all other Major League teams. Served as Executive for Browns, Cardinals, Dodgers and Pirates. Brought Jackie Robinson to Brooklyn in 1947.” His HOF biography: “After a mediocre career as a player and manager, Branch Rickey spent half a century in the front office as baseball’s greatest visionary executive. With the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1920s and 1930s, Rickey invented the modern farm system, promoting a new way of training and developing players. Later with the Brooklyn Dodgers, he pioneered the utilization of baseball statistics. In 1945, he became the first executive to break baseball’s color line when he signed Jackie Robinson, who became the major leagues’ first African-American player in the 20th century.” This contract, signed by Branch Rickey on December 29, 1933, was mailed to Gene Moore but was not signed by him. Evidently Rickey was certain Moore would sign with the Cardinals, which he did. From an Associated Press story a month earlier, datelined St. Louis, November 26: “‘I feel that all they need to win the pennant is for the men now on the club to click,’ the Cardinals vice president said today … As Rickey views the outlook, the pitching is ‘good,’ the infield ‘strong,’ and the outfield ‘greatly strengthened’ by the addition of three recruits, Gene Moore from Houston, Buster Mills from Rochester and John Rothrock from Columbus. ‘If somebody had said to me, “Go out and buy the three best outfielders you can buy,” these three would have been among the first four I would have considered,’ Rickey asserted…” In a February 17, 1934 interview with the “Chicago Daily Tribune,” St. Louis Cardinals player-manager Frankie Frisch gave this lineup: “Collins on first, Frisch on second, Durocher at short stop, and Martin on third. Medwick will be in left field, [Ernie] Orsatti, Mills from Rochester, and Gene Moore from Houston will all have a fling at the center field job. For right field, we have Watkins and Rothrock. Davis will do most of the catching…” Outfielder Eugene Moore (1909-1978), nicknamed “Rowdy,” played for the Cincinnati Reds in 1931 and three teams in the Illinois-Indiana-Iowa League and the New York/Penn League in 1932. In 1933, he played for the Houston Buffaloes in the Texas League. He also appeared in 11 games for St. Louis in 1933 batting .395 (15 for 38). Moore played for the Cardinals in 1934 and 1935 and the Boston Braves (1936-1938, 1940-1941), Brooklyn Dodgers (1939-1940), Washington Senators (1942-1943), and St. Louis Browns (1944-1945). He was a member of the 1937 National League All-Star Team and played for the St. Louis Browns in all six games of the 1944 World Series won by the St. Louis Cardinals. In the low scoring Series, Gene Moore led the Browns in runs scored with 4; only the Cardinals Ray Sanders had more (5). Pre-certified by Spence

        Lycidas

      Paris. Jack Kahane At The Obelisk Press. 1933. Bound in thin cardboard wrappers. Imprinted dustwrapper. Cased in a mildly worn and soiled full Royal Blue Calfskin Chemise. 8vo. This Edition was specially printed by Kahane for private circulation and consisted of but 25 copies, each inscribed (imoprinted. with the name of the recipient. This copy for Hope Richardson. From: "a history of Jack Kahane and the Obelisk Press By Neil Pearson"& & JOHN MILTON & According to Harold Brighouse, Jack Kahane held Milton's lycidas to be the finest poem in the English language. It was first published in 1638 in a book of elegies commemorating the death of Edward King, a contemporary of Milton's at Cambridge who drowned in a shipwreck off the Welsh coast in August 1637. In 1933 Kahane had the poem printed privately, using the Obelisk imprint, in an edition running to just 25 copies. Each copy bears a unique printed dedication: the paper used is handmade Montval; the sheets are sewn, not glued, into the binding; and the volume was issued in a marbled chemise, the title of the poem stamped in gilt on thespine.These werent the usual production values assigned to a book from the Obelisk Press; no other bears the words 'PRINTED UNDER THE DIRECTION OF JACK KAHANE' in the colophon. A meditation on death, sumptuously printed and bound, never offered for sale but instead presented only to a very few close friends, the Obelisk Cycidas seems to have been not so much a book as a memento mon distributed by a man preoccupied by death. This was certainly the opinion of Harold Brighouse, one of Lycidas's dedicatecs: Thoughts of death, if hardly an obsession, were charac-teristic... [Kahane] had been near to death three times before his fatal illness, and besides shell damage on the Western Front he was critically ill. His father, a Rumanian Jew by origin, committed suicide... There was death in the family: In 1933 Kahane seems to have been preoccupied by death — whether as a result of his tuberculosis, his war injuries, thoughts of suicide, or a combination of all three is impossible to say. He continued to live the expensive life of the man about town .Recklessness of living is venial in a man convinced that he has not long to live; noted Brighouse — and was typically blithe on a presentation card he tucked into Caresse Crosby's copy of lycitlas: 'Please accept this little edition of one of the finest pieces of English, done to please myself.Which self was most pleased? The mortally ill Kahane would have been drawn by the poem's tender ruminations on premature death; the Kahane who aspired to be Balzac but had to settle for being Cecil Barr would have responded to Milton's fear, expressed in the poem, of dying before fulfilling one's promise; Kahane the spendthrift philanderer would have been comforted by Milton's faith in redemption. & & The individual dedication in each copy of lycidas builds a checklist of those whom Kahane regarded as the important people in his life, at a time when he seems to have thought he was about to leave it. As Well as Brighouse and Crosby, copies of lycidas were dedicated to Sylvia Beach; to Michel Bogouslavski, head of the foreign books department at Hachette and the man who brokered Kahane's split from his partner/printer Marcel Servant in 1937; to Virginia Vernon, writer and wife of Broadway director Frank Vernon; and to Auriol Lee, a theatre actress and director, who appeared in Alfred Hitchcock's 1941 thriller Suspicion. Kahane's connection to Vernon and Lee is unknown, as is the whereabouts of the other nineteen copies. Kahane's wife Marcelle must be one of the missing dedicatees; other likely recipients include Kahane's younger brother Fred, Stuart Gilbert, Nancy Cunard... but until the missing copies surface, best not [let] our frail thoughts dally with false surmise. Several light spots of foxing to prelim. Gutters lightly soiled. Generally, a Fine, crisp copy in like Dustwrapper and Very Good Chemise. Very Rare.
