        Bulletin hebdomadaire de Police Criminelle [Reliure des n° 1340 à 1365, juillet à décembre 1933]

      Police Criminelle 1933 Fort volume en reliure toilée réunissant les n° 1340 (3 juillet 1933) à 1365 (25 décembre 1933) du Bulletin hebdomadaire de Police Criminelle. Ensemble d'environ 800pp. [les bulletins font de 23 à 45pp. chacun]. Une étiquette imprimée avec les références collée au dos. La reliure est très usagée, les bulletins en bon état. Nombreuses annotations. Rarissime documentation d'archives policières. Ces bulletins étaient évidemment à usage professionnel et interne. L'anthropométrie triomphait dans la lutte contre le crime. Toute une vision morale se révèle dans cette littérature administrative : « fréquente les milieux algériens », « délit de vagabondage ». Les signes particuliers sont l'objet de descriptions minutieuses : « poitrine développée, emploie de la poudre de riz couleur ocre » ; « porte généralement des culottes bouffantes et des leggins » ; « verrue à la joue droite, cicatrice de furoncle au poignet gauche » ; « tête très allongée » ; « accoutrement genre artiste lunette en écaille, couleur blonde ». Dans les demandes de recherches : une femme qui « se présente dans les établissements religieux, munie de recommandation provenant de la supérieure d'un couvent. Elle demande des renseignements, pour sa s?ur, dit-elle, qui veut être religieuse, puis se dit très contrariée, car venue dans la localité pour y faire des achats, elle a perdu la somme d'agent que sa mère lui avait remise pour payer les fournisseurs. Elle accepte l'offre d'argent qui peut lui être faite, promettant de rembourser quelques jours après, mais ne reparaît plus. » : une troupe de danseurs et danseuses ambulants connue sous le nom de « Lee-Thung Foo » Chaque n° comprend une table alphabétique des individus répertoriés ; de nombreuses pages d'individus recherchés, avec leur description anthropométrique et une ou deux photos, leur date et lieu de naissance, parfois le motif de la recherche, des renseignements pour identification ; des demandes de recherches ; des listes de bijoux et objets volés (parfois avec photos) ; des avis de cessations de recherches ; la table alphabétique des individus compris au B.P.C. Ce bulletin était adressé gratuitement à Messieurs les procureurs généraux, Procureurs de la République, Juges d'instruction, Commissaires de Police, Commandants de Brigades de gendarmerie, Directeurs de Maisons centrales, Surveillants-Chefs de Maison d'arrêt, en Elgérie et en Tunisie. Cette reliure a appartenu au Commissariat général de la ville d'Orléans, qui y apposa son tampon en première page de chaque bulletin. (sw) Satisfaisant couverture rigide Edition originale

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

      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.

        " WALLS OF GOLD" BY KATHLEEN NORRIS ... SCREEN PLAY BY ... [wrapper title]

      Hollywood: Fox Film Corp. 27 July28 August 1933. Hollywood: Fox Film Corp., 27 July - 28 August 1933.. 96 leaves. Quarto. Mimeographed typescript, printed on rectos only. Bradbound in studio wrappers. Overlap edges and spine covering of wrappers a bit snagged and torn, relevant annotations on upper wrapper, very good. An unspecified draft of this screenplay by Cole, based on an adaptation of Norris's novel by Edmond Seward and Wallace Sullivan. A pencil list on the upper wrapper indicates the dates at which revisions were incorporated over the span noted above. Kenneth MacKenna directed the October 1933 release, starring Sally Eilers, Norman Foster, et al. Cole was one of the cofounders of the Screen Writers Guild, and in 1934 joined the CPA. Like his other colleagues known as the "Hollywood Ten," Cole refused to cooperate with the HUAC in 1947, was sentenced to a year in prison and a fine, and was placed on the Blacklist. He continued to work sporadically under pennames, and his last major film, BORN FREE, was so credited. WALLS OF GOLD is the third writing credit ascribed to him by the IMDB. Scarce.

        Original Typescript of "Tribute to a Hero"

      1933. 23 pages, carbon typescript, with approximately three dozen changes made in Cain's hand, and more than a dozen additional small variations between this text and the published version. Published in American Mercury in November 1933, "Tribute to a Hero," is an autobiographical piece about the Cain family following the father's 1903 job change from St. John's College at Annapolis to Washington College at Chestertown, MD, and the culture shock that ensued from this move to a "hick place" from one of "smartness, competence, and class," a state of affairs that was partially redeemed by the actions of "a great man" (with an assist from Cain's father) on the occasion of a Washington College-Maryland Agricultural College football game. Published the year before his first novel, The Postman Always Rings Twice (and following Our Government in 1930, nonfiction based on Cain's column for New York World). Called "one of Cain's finest essays" by David Madden in James M. Cain: Hard-Boiled Mythmaker. Carbon paper a bit yellowed, some pencil rubbing, not affecting text; near fine. An early manuscript of a boyhood epiphany by a writer who gained a place in the literary pantheon for his famous first novel, which is still considered one of the high spots of American hard-boiled fiction. .

        Paris de Nuit

Bit creased at the edges, especially along the bottom; a very good copy in spiral-bound photo-illustrated wrappers.. First Edition. Spiral bound quarto, sixty-four gravure plates. The best-known and most iconic of the great Paris photobooks, printed in a deep gravure so tactile it seems almost as if charcoal will rub off on the hands of the viewer. The cobblestone covers and endpapers are particularly evocative. (Parr / Badger, v1, 134; Roth 76-77; Open Book 110; Auer 198).

        Five Line Blocks of The Goops

      [circa 1930s]. Five partial line blocks from one of Gelett Burgess's Goops books that had been repurposed for a McNeil Laboratories advertisement circa 1930s. Zinc metal plates mounted on wood blocks of various sizes from approximately 2" x 2.5" to 6.5" x 4". A touch of damage to the head of one Goop, likely from the blocks being cut down from a larger full-sized image, else near fine. Laid in is an Autographed Letter Signed from Grace McNeil along with an envelope and the tattered original mailer from McNeil Laboratories. Grace McNeil was the wife of Robert Lincoln McNeil, who in 1933 founded McNeil Laboratories which is now part of Johnson & Johnson. She apparently sent the wood blocks to a friend to use and explains in the letter: "These are the remnants of the 'Goops.' The book of the original design was once lent to I-don't-remember-Whom. So this is all! I don't seem to have a printing of a third flyer [advertisement], which there is a die of. If you can use them the printer can cut away the names, as we had done."The Goops were a popular series of seven children's books published by Burgess starting in 1900 with Goops and How to be Them and ending with New Goops and How to Know Them in 1951, the year of his death. The books taught children manners by exposing readers to the poor behavior of the ever bumptious Goops children depicted through pictures and verse. The line blocks here show Goops cooking, sitting at a table eating, walking with packages, and using an early telephone. McNeil Laboratories incorporated the Goops into their advertising by cutting down some of the line blocks used to print their books and recycling select images that best fit their marketing needs.A nice example of licensing for this popular 20th Century children's book and the recyclable nature of materials during The Great Depression. .

        History of the Indian Tribes of North America; with biographical sketches and anecdotes of the principal chiefs [Volumes I and III only]

      Edinburgh: John Grant. Very Good+ in Very Good dj. 1933; 1934. New edition. Hardcover. NOISBN . [just a bit of shelfwear and light bumping to bottom edges/corners, one-time owner's rubber-stamped signature on front pastedowns (both volumes); jackets are uniformly age-toned (somewhat more at spines), with general soiling and some wrinkling along the top edges, but with no tears or chips]. (2 photogravure ports.; 72 color plates; 2 maps) Regrettably incomplete set (Volumes I and III only; Volume II is not present) of this classic work, originally published in three folio volumes issued in 1836, 1838 and 1844. The introduction to this "New Edition," by editor Hodge, presents an account of the creation of the original work (including much biographical information about the authors) and an extensive bibliographical discussion of numerous editions that followed, in particular the history of the work's most notable feature: the color portraits of many Native Americans, primarily tribal chiefs. Because the portraits, which hung originally at the War Department and later at the Smithsonian Institution, had been painted from life (and predated the widespread use of photography), in many instances they represent the only existing images of their subjects; and because most of the originals were destroyed in the 1865 Smithsonian fire, only the published reproductions remain. This edition contained 123 color plates in all, of which 72 are present in the two volumes on offer, as are the two color maps, at the end of Volume III. .

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.

Lawrence" (O'Brien).

        THE PAINTED VEIL...DIALOGUE CONTINUITY...[(sic)wrapper title]

      Culver City: Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios 8 November 1933. Culver City: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, 8 November 1933.. 127 leaves. Quarto. Mimeographed typescript, printed on rectos only. Bradbound in mimeographed studio wrappers, with paper label. A few short, creased tears at edge of upper wrapper near brads, corner from filing label torn away, otherwise an unusually nice copy. Labeled a "Dialogue Continuity" script (denoted a "Complete" "Vault Copy" via rubberstamps on upper wrapper), but in fact, an actual shooting script of this adaptation of Maugham's 1925 novel. The 1934 release, directed by Richard Boleslawski, starred Greta Garbo, Jean Hersholt, Herbert Marshall, et al. Although Viertel and Fitzgerald were given collaborative screen credit for the adaptation, this script acknowledges only Meehan, and the date above is assigned in the denotation that the script had been okayed by Hunt Stomberg, the producer, on that date.
