[Charles Nordoff and James Norman Hall] Talbot Jennings, Jules Furthman, Carey Wilson
Culver City: Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios, 1934. 4to, pale blue studio covers, 2-hole punched with brad fasteners. 225 pp. Based upon the 1932 best-selling novel, this is the complete shooting script, dated Dec 27,1934. Studio label on front cover with production no. 0554; 2072 stamped in upper right corner. All pages are white with black mimeographed text; no colored page insertions or written interlineations. The film was produced by Irving Thalberg and directed by Frank Lloyd. Starring Charles Laughton and Clark Gable, it was one of MGM's biggest hits of the 1930s and was a critical success. Despite some historical inaccuracies, later film critics consider this adaptation to be the best cinematic work inspired by the mutiny and the film is #86 on the American Film Institutes list of 100 best American films. It was nominated for eight Academy Awards, including best screenplay, and won the award for Best Picture. The Informer, starring Victor McLaglen, swept most other major awards that year. The Writers Guild, on the other hand, recognized Jennings, Furthman and Wilson for writing the best screenplay of the year. Scarce; we are unaware of any other copies of this screenplay appearing on the market.######Condition: Good+. Covers worn and faded, as is typical for scripts of the period, with several nicks and small tears at the edges. Studio label on front cover lacking a small piece at bottom. Minor tears at the brads. Interior pages are clean and complete. Stamped COMPLETE / VAULT COPY. The words FILE COPY appear twice, lined out.

1934. Condition: Acceptable. A very rare signed and numbered copy of an out of print limited edition This a 1st edition and it is the first book publication by Eddie Peake This was released alongside his exhibition at White Cube gallery in London and it now much sough after. This is in a used but good condition, slight bending at bottom of spine but otherwise wonderful for all images *** for more RARE / SIGNED / UNIQUE objects, editions & books please see my other items *** Some info about the show... Letting fly with a volley of energetic new works, Eddie Peake's new show Adjective Machine Gun marks the first time the artist has put together performance pieces with static sculptures. The mixed-media practitioner based in London has plenty of weapons in his arsenal, including photography, neon sculpture and painting, and at White Cube, Bermondsey, he is combining his firepower with dynamic works surrounding centrally-placed static sculptures on the themes of sexuality, gender and voyeurism. Peake has recreated large elements of the now-defunct penguin enclosure at London Zoo, designed in 1934 by Berthold Lubetkin, to act as an arena, in which he, with dancers and musicians, will perform over the course of the exhibition. There's plenty more to get involved with in Adjective Machine Gun, including the introduction of a new neon faun who is to be a recurring character in Peake's future works. Shoot over to the gallery before 21st April. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]

Georg Thieme, Leipzig, 1934. Prompt shipment, with tracking.*First separate edition. Offprint. Original wrappers. Tear to head and heal of spine, else very good. Inscribed presentation copy to Sewall Wright signed by Timofeeff-Ressovsky. "Like Dobzhansky, Timofeeff-Ressovsky attended the Sixth International Congress of Genetics in Ithaca, New York, in 1932, heard Wright speak, and was greatly impressed. Indeed, as in Dobzhansky's case, Timofeeff-Ressovsky's conception of the evolutionary process thereafter bore the strong stamp of Wright's concenptions. Timofeeff-Ressovsky published three major papers on evolution in nature (Buzzati-Traverso, Jucci, and Timofeeff-Ressovsky 1938, Timofeeff-Ressovsky 1939, 1940). All three reflected Wright's ideas."

FITZGERALD, F. Scott
Charles Scribner's Sons, New York, 1934. First edition. Lightly worn cloth, near fine in an attractive, first issue dustwrapper with an unfaded spine and some minor repair and restoration at the extremities. Fitzgerald had all but fallen off the map when this, his last completed novel, was issued. A portrait of expatriates on the French Riviera, it was supposedly based on Gerald and Sara Murphy but is as likely based on the Fitzgeralds themselves. The 1962 film version by Henry King, the last of his many films adapted from literary novels, featured Jason Robards and Jennifer Jones. Housed in a custom clamshell case. A very nice copy of a desirable and very uncommon title, almost never encountered without fading to the spine. *Connolly 100*. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

Robert Graves
Arthur Barker. Both volumes are First UK editions and first issues published by Barker in 1934. This is a near fine set. I, Claudius has some sunning to the spine and very minor wear to the top of the spine also. But the wrapper is in remarkable condition with no loss at all and being very clean. The back panel is clear from marks. The wrapper is not price clipped. The book's spine is a shade faded also. The book is square and clean with no foxing at all to the text block or to the pages. There are no previous owner's marks. Claudius the God also is a couple of shades sunned to the spine but it has hardly any wear at all. The wrapper has no loss and is in such lovely condition, again with a clean and clear back panel. There is no foxing or other marks to the text block and the book itself presents as very near fine. It is very nice. Overall this is a rare near fine set and one that is difficult to find with these attributes. I, Claudius is a historical novel. Written in the form of an autobiography of the Roman Emperor Claudius, it tells the history of the Julio-Claudian dynasty and the early years of the Roman Empire, from Julius Caesar's assassination in 44 BC to Caligula's assassination in AD 41. Though the narrative is largely fictionalised, most of the events depicted are drawn from historical accounts of the same time period by the Roman historians Suetonius and Tacitus. The "autobiography" continues in a sequel, Claudius the God, which covers the period from Claudius' accession to his death in AD 54. The sequel also includes a section written as a biography o … [Click Below for Full Description]

Neale Hurston, Zora
Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, 1934. First edition of the author's first book. Octavo, original cloth. In very good condition. Praised by Carl Sandburg as "a bold and beautiful book, many a page priceless and unforgettable." Written in only three to four months in 1934, Jonah's Gourd Vine is the first novel published by acclaimed anthropologist, writer, and Harlem Renaissance personality Zora Neale Hurston. The book, based loosely on her parents' lives, explores the life and consciousness of John Pearson and his relationship with his wife Lucy Potts and other women in the town. Pearson was depicted as a minister in a small black Florida town, Eatonville, which in reality was Hurston's hometown. In Hurston's work one hears and feels the authentic voice, power, and sensibilities of people and places. In this novel, she used events from her childhood and the sermons she heard as a preacher's daughter to give structure and texture to this novel.

ONCHI, Kôshirô, artist & author
Tokyo: , Shôwa 9 [1934]. [SOSAKU HANGA] ONCHI, Kôshirô, artist & author. UMI NO DOWA. Tokyo: Hanga-sô, Shôwa 9 [1934]. Self-wrappers in glassine, with Onchi's text and accompanying 6 polychrome woodblock prints, the blocks of which were carved by him. Each print is a vortex of images with the female form as visual pivot. Onchi and his work need no introduction - he is considered the most important Japanese printmaker of the mid-Century and one of the most innovative and creative of all time. As a leader of the Sosaku Hanga Creative Print movement, he guided the development of many of the dominant figures of post-war art until his premature death in the 1950's.UMI NO DOWA is a seminal work. This copy has scarcely any of the usual foxing. It is about fine, with the [original?] glassine. Certainly a most desirable copy of this highspot at the intersection of the Creative Print Movement and the Avant Garde before the War.

Dennis Wheatley
UK: First edition, first printing (undated) published in 1934 by Hutchinson & Co. 328pp + publisher's catalogue bound in at the rear. It's a very good copy considering the lack of dustjacket, publisher's original red cloth with black stamped titles to the upper board and spine. Light rubbing to the corners and spine tips, the cloth has light age soiling but retains excellent colour, the titles are bold. The original 'mapped' endpapers designed by the author and his wife Joan are quite superb, uniform, light toning to ep's and pages throughout, the block has some light soiling and one or two marks. Inscribed to the title page by the author. Without a doubt, Wheatley's masterpiece and one of the most important novels ever written on black magic. It was of course adapted for film by Hammer Studios in 1968, the screenplay being written by Richard Matheson (I am Legend) and starring Christopher Lee as the Duc de Richleau and Charles Gray as 'Mocata'. This first printing is extremely scarce, especially for being signed by the author. A genre cornerstone, listed in all major genre bibliographies. *Keywords; Black Magic, Occult, Black Mass, Devil Worship, Demon Manifestation, Astral Projection. [Attributes: First Edition]

Small quarto, original full tan morocco with just some light age related markings. Top edge gilt others uncut . The Signed limited first edition, this being number '9' of only 303 copies signed and numbered by Sassoon on the colophon. These 22 poems 'were engraved on copper by Charles Sigrist, and printed May, 1934. The frontispiece was designed and engraved by Stephen Gooden.' After production of this limited edition, the plates were destroyed. The book is protected in a loose Mylar archival cover. Rupert Hart-Davis records that Sassoon 'longed for praise and recognition, but he was so instinctively reclusive, so unsure of his gifts and afraid of making a fool of himself, that he preferred his poems to appear first in small and expensive limited editions' (Sassoon, Diaries 1915-1918, 10). Keynes A39. An excellent copy of this increasingly scarce Sassoon limited edition. More images available on request. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

Hanns Heinz Ewers
New York: The John Day Company, 1934. About this Item: John Day Company, New York, 1934. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. 1st Edition. Iconic first edition book is VERY GOOD. Book is tight and square and bound in orange cloth over boards. Spine lettering and blind stamp are black. Rare priced (2.50) dust jacket is finely and extensively repaired on the verso. There is a book plate of Allan C. Leverentz, critic and collector of apparently, as a stamp on the FFE states " Books of the Fantastic& Curious from the Collections of Allan C. Leverentz" Many believe this to be the finest novel from the pen of this distinguished German writer, Hanns Heinz Ewers (1871-1943) whose macabre creations, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, The Spider, blood and Alraune, have won for him a world wide audience. Vampire os the strange story of Frank Braun, and how he was cured of a mysterious disease by Lotte, his mistress who loved him more than life. That mysticism for which the author is famous is found in Vampire, as are those other qualities which have caused so many critics to compare his work to that of Baudelaire and Poe. Book is rare and very collectible.

Duckworth, 1934. First edition, first state binding of bright blue cloth with gilt lettering, in rare pictorial dustwrapper with a photograph of the author on the upper cover. A fine copy in a very good dustwrapper which shows meaningful chips from the spine ends, taking out much of the title and publisher's name. A little further wear and repaired tears, but the panels and flaps in good order. Twenty-four photographic plates and a fold-out map. Without question, the author's rarest commercially published book. In years of actively seeking this book we have encountered a mere handful of copies in dustwrapppers mainly in a very poor state.
