        Letters from T. E. Shaw to Bruce Rogers

      Mount Vernon, NY: Bruce Rogers,, 1933-6. [together with;] More Letters from T. E. Shaw to Bruce Rogers. 2 volumes octavo. Original brown cloth, title gilt to the spines. Spines perhaps a touch sunned, front endpapers of both a little discoloured from clippings no longer present, small roughened patches to the front pastedowns where a label has been removed, but overall very good indeed. First and only editions, the first-named one of 200, the second one of 300 copies. Both inscribed by Rogers to his friend and confidante Henry L. Bullen, the librarian of the Typographic Library and Museum of the American Type Founders Company. The first volume was printed by William Edwin Rudge from type set by Bertha M. Goudy, the second set and printed by Rogers himself, "this short collection of … letters [was] issued privately … Many of the copies are signed by Rogers who apparently gave them as gifts. The letters are for the most part those written by Lawrence during the period he was translating The Odyssey and are of major importance in relation to that work … Most of the letters are not contained in The Letters of T.E. Lawrence" (O'Brien).

The 1934 release, directed by Richard Boleslawski, starred Greta Garbo, Jean Hersholt, Herbert Marshall, et al.

        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"

        Coyote Stories. Edited and illustrated by Heister Dean Guie with notes by L.V. McWhorter (Old Wolf) and a foreword by Chief Standing Bear

      Caxton Printers Caldwell: Caxton Printers. 1933. First Edition in dust jacket. 8vo; 229 pp. Pale yellow cloth with illustration of a coyote in brown on front board, red decorated dust jacket with images of animals such as berar, coyote, buffalo, deer, etc. in shadow silhouette, title, author, and illustrator in blck , jacket a bit rubbed at edges as is book, but very good overall. Cover designed by Hester Dean Guie. Mourning Dove was the literary name chosen by Christine (or Christal) Quintasket, an Okanogan from the Colville Reservation of eastern Washington. Mourning Dove's education included sporadic attendance at the Goodwin Mission School near Kettle Falls, Washington, the Fort Spokane School for Indians, and the Fort Shaw Indian School in Montana. She also briefly attended a secretarial school in Alberta where she learned to type and improved her English. But it was working as a migrant worker that Mourning Dove earned her livelihood as an adult. By day, she earned a meager living picking fruits and vegetables, and at night, she wrote in her camp-tent, experiencing years of poverty and physical hardship. In 1914 she met Lucullus V. McWhorter, an archaeologist and Indian rights advocate, and he encouraged her to write and publish, collaborating with her on writing projects, including her 1916 novel CO-GE- WE-A, the first novel published by a Native American woman. COYOTE STORIES, a collection of Salishan trickster tales and genesis stories, was McWhorter and Mourning Dove's final collaborative work and evolved from McWhorter's unpublished manuscript, "Okanogan Sweat House." A very scarce collection, COYOTE STORIES is edited and illustrated by Heister Dean Guie, a newspaper reporter, and includes a foreword by Chief Standing Bear and notes by McWhorter. The book contains 27 tales, mostly featuring the trickster figure Sin-ka-lip', the coyote, as the main character. It received positive reviews and reached its second printing by 1934. Although it was promoted as a collection of tales for children and general audiences with little exposure to Native American literature and culture, COYOTE STORIES was meant to be more than entertaining bedtime stories. Mourning Dove intended COYOTE STORIES to force white Americans to reconsider assimilationist practices that taught Native American children to reject and ridicule traditional stories. As Standing Bear states in the Forward: "These legends are of America, as are its mountains, rivers, and forests, and as are its people. They belong!" Bataille, Native American Women: a Biographical Dictionary, pp. 178-179. Bloom, Native American Women Writers, pp 69-82. Buck, Bloomsbury Guide to Women's Literature, p. 838. DLB 175, pp. 187-197.

        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.

After the war, Kolbenhoff published novels on, for instance, the Werewolf-movement and the German student movement of 1968, and he was one of the founding members of Gruppe 47

        VOYAGE AU BOUT DE LA NUIT. Signed [Journey To The End Of The Night]

      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. Connolly: The Modern Movement No. 74. An important Association Copy.. Signed by Author(s). First Thus.

      Hollywood: Paramount Studios, 1933.. First Edition. Spiral. Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" Tall This promotional book was sent out by the Studios to cinema managers to encourage them to show Paramount films. It carries details of the offering for 1933-34, including some films that were never actually made and some in which the advertised cast or directors were subsequently changed.

Because it is spiral bound the pages can be opened completely flat without causing damage. There are no loose pages - in fact, the book is in excellent condition throughout. It has been folded in half at some stage, due to its large size, so it has a light vertical fold. It will be mailed out flat though.Movies featured in this campaign book which have subsequently become renowned include Duck Soup. 92pp.

Baring discusses the recent appearance of and furor over a new book on the WW I flying ace Albert Ball, [CAPTAIN ALBERT BALL VC DS, by RH Kiernan], which Baring considers "a noble tribute to a great boy. His father Sir Albert Ball Mayor of Nottingham, misreading it, has seen red & considers it a slander on his son and an insult to the RAF." Baring continues, "To me this is as if the Spartan fathers had considered Simonides' epitaph [on the fallen Spartans at the Battle of Thermopylae] ... a slur ... " Noting that Ball had spoken critically to the press about the book, Baring asks Lawrence if he might consider reading it and giving his opinion

        Roll, Jordan, Roll

      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 .
