        Unfinished Portrait.

      London: Collins, 1934. Octavo. Original blue cloth, lettering to spine. Without dust jacket. Spine slightly rolled, a touch of browning to spine ends, top edge dusty; an excellent copy in the bright jacket with some shallow chips and nicks to extremities, and short closed tears to head and foot of front panel. First edition, first impression of Agatha Christie's semi-autobiographical novel, and the second written under the pseudonym of Mary Westmacott. Christie's adoption of a pseudonym was an interesting psychological manoeuvre that allowed her license for self-revelation not to be found in her detective fiction or even in her autobiography. Christie even adopted a different handwriting style for presentation copies of the book.

        Seven Gothic Tales. With an Introduction by Dorothy Canfield.

      New York, 1934.. The true first edition of Blixen's first book, her proper debut and "the most astonishing and perhaps greatest literary work of art from between the wars". This literary masterpiece was originally published in America, as it is here, then in the UK later the same year, and in a re-written edition in Danish in 1935. The legendary Danish writer, Karen Blixen-Finecke (pseudonym: Isak Dinesen) (1885-1962), was a Danish baroness, who married her cousin, the Swedish Baron Bror Blixen-Finecke, in 1914. They soon moved to Africa, where they ran a coffee-farm near Nairobi, and the happiest years of Blixen's life were spent here (she used to say: "Africa made me"). She divorced her husband, who was cheating on her and gave her syphilis, in 1922, and in 1932 she moved back to Denmark after the farm had gone bankrupt and her lover, Denys Finch-Hatton, had died in a plane-crash. She spent the remaining 30 years of her life in Denmark, where she died a legendary writer. After she had returned to Denmark, she began preparing some of the stories she had been working on in Africa for publication. She used the pseudonym Isak Dinesen (the name Isak is derived from the Hebrew Itzhak, which means "he laughed", and Dinesen was her maiden name) so that the public would think she was a man - in order to be taken seriously as a writer. Although written under a male pseudonym, the book was still not met with instant appreciation. Karen Blixen then offered the tales to the editor Constant Huntington at Putnam's in England, but he turned them down; luckily, her brother was well connected and within two years, his acquaintance, the American writer Dorythy Canfield (who wrote the introduction for the first edition), succeeded in having the book of stories published by Robert Haas and Harrison Smith (later Random House) in America. Blixen's first book became a success, was elected Book-of-the-Month-Club, and was published by Putnam's later the same year. It established her reputation and laid the foundations for her further writings, financially as well as literally. She translated the tales into Danish and published them thus in 1935. "In the middle of the thirties the most astonishing and perhaps greatest literary work of art from between the wars landed in Denmark - via the USA: Isak Dinesen's "Sy Fantastiske Fortællinger" (1935), re-written in Danish by the author after the English-language original, "Seven Gothic Tales" (1934). [...] This book, as well as the ones to come, was received with excitement, astonishment and respect; but it was not until the war, and especially after the war, that the particular actuality of the writings was fully realized - and this was to become of literary importance" (Politiken's History of Danish Literature - own translation).Karen Blixen's first book, the collections of Gothic Tales, were quite unusual at the time. They take place about a hundred years before the time in which they were written and they tend towards the gloomy and the grotesque. They were meant to startle, but not fright, the reader, and they contain many magical and supernatural elements. In many ways the stories resemble those of "A Thousand and One Nights".Since her breakthrough with "Seven Gothic Tales", Blixen has been considered a writer of the greatest importance, and execized a great influence upon writers and cultural personas of the generations to come - many authors recognize her as a direct source of inspiration. Several of her novels have been filmatized, she was nominated for the Nobel Prize twice, she was elected honorary member of "The American Academy of Arts and Letters" (1957), and her portrait is printed on the Danish 50 kr. notes. She is the most famous of all modern Danish writers, and the only one of international fame

        Manuscript Journal with Photographs - Unpublished Primary Source Account of a Merchant Travelling Through Southern China - Yunnanfu and Guangdong - Text in German

      1934. Yunnan, Guangdong, 1934-1935. Firsthand two-part travel journal illustrated with original photographs and manuscript route maps, describing one year in Yunnanfu [Kunming] and two subsequent journeys in Guangdong, South China. Signed dedication by the author inscribed to title page, dated 17 June 1935. Typescript text is in German, with Chinese surnames and placenames penned in Chinese manuscript. Photographs are neatly organized into corresponding sections of the journey, titled accordingly, and mounted to leafs adjacent to typescript caption. Qto. 92 pages combined, with 90 original sepia photographs measuring 5,5 x 8 cm, a frontis route map and title page which inscribed by the author on 17 June 1935. Maroon over green cloth boards, original endpapers reinforced at seam. Volume measures approximately 23 x 28,5 cm. Slight wear to boards at extremities, slight age-toning to some images, otherwise very good condition, a superb account with uncommon photographs. The author is an German merchant who was born in China, on the northern coast at Qingdao, who studied commerce in Germany, and who travelled for the purpose of trade as an agent of firms established in Shanghai and Canton. Travelling far from the usual touring spots, as he embarks on his commerce driven expeditions to south and southwest China, Glathe shares with pen and camera his experiences and his knowledge of regions not trodden by the common foreigner. Born in Qingdao, and having spent the majority of his life in China, his proficiency with the language and indigenous ways of life, lends itself to presenting authoritative, primary source insight. Alarmingly, slavery and public execution were still standard practice in the 1930s, in Yunnan at least. Unique in format and in content, this merchant's journal does not contain the standard iconic temples and pagodas, the Ming tombs, the forbidden city, or the like, but rather renders a most absorbing, unbiased and straightforward account of practices long before abolished in China's principal cities, and descriptions of remote villages retaining ancient tradition. After the Second World War, Glathe immigrated to Australia. The National Library of Australia holds a collection of 400 nitrate negatives, contained in four small albums, for photographs of southern China taken by Harry Glathe while he was travelling through Yunnan, Kwangsi and Kwangtung, selling dye and cloth. Approximately 160 of the images are also reproduced in a typed manuscript account of his travels in southern China, much like the present journal. The travellogue first describes one year in Yunnan Province, the author having settled in Kunming, and features accounts of the Yunnan slave trade, political corruption, capital punishment, spiritual legends, and regional custom. A 21 page narrative featuring 3 manuscript sketch maps, followed by 64 captioned photographs for visual illustration, the account and the photographic sections are each neatly presented in five areas of interest as follows: • Yunnan-Fu [Kunming] • Mineral springs in the Western Hills [kalkbrennereien] • The execution of two Chinese soldiers [Hinrichtung zweier soldaten] • Slavery in Yunnan [sklaverei] • River scenes and rock formations in the Kunming Stone Forest [Kunming, known as Yunnan-Fu until the 1920s, is now the capital and largest city in Yunnan Province, Southwest China, being the political, economic, communications and cultural centre of the province. Many of Yunnan's large businesses have established their headquarters in Kunming.] Almost immediately delving into Chinese politics, which, naturally, had a direct influence on foreign relations and commerce, he mentions opium, policing, and Lung Yun (1888-1962) - the corrupt and independent-minded governor of Yunnan, who had come to power in 1927 and was the last of the great warlords, and with whom he must have had a meeting. Glathe includes a close-up snapshot photograph of the governor. Five pages are devoted to slave trading practices in Yunnan, an industry largely trading women and children, describing the average prices fetched for a slave, means by which the victims are scouted, and their vulnerability although allegedly a protective system was in place. A section is devoted to an account of the gruesome public execution of two Chinese soldiers, death being the sentence for a crime of extortion. He further describes Buddhist temples, bronze and gold monuments, the deity Quan Yin with 1000 eyes, the cherished legend of the goddess Kuan Yin, a visit to Hei Long Tan Park in Kunming and its large Taoist Dragon Fountain Temple. He lists several other temples and altars passed on his travels off. Excerpts from the manuscript, dealing with the year spent in Yunnan: Title: Ein Jahr in Yünnanfu. H. Glathe. Im Auftrage von Herren Glathe & Witt, Schanghai. Vom 13. Februar 1934 bis 6. März 1935. [A Year in Yunnan-Fu from 13 February 1934 to 6 March 1935: Representing Gathe & Witt Co. of Shanghai. By H. Glathe] "...ist Hauptprodukt der Agrikultur neben Reis in Yunnan eben Opium. Unzählige felder tragen mohnblumen aus welchen opium gewonnen wird." [... the main agricultural product in Yunnan, next to rice, is opium. Countless fields produce poppies from which opium is extracted.] "Das einzige gebiet in china, wo noch sklaven im eigentlichen Sinne des wortes ganz öffentlich gehandelt werden, ist die Provinz Yünnan... Die chinesische bezeichnung für weibliche sklaven ist Ja Tou... " [The only region in China where even slaves are publicly traded in the true sense of the word, is the Yunnan Province... The Chinese term for female slaves is Ja Tou...] "Solch eine sklavenhändlerin geht aufs land und sucht sich dort eine tochterreiche familie heraus die sie besuchen geht. Nun gibt sie an, sie habe keinen sohn und möchte gerne einen sohn adoptieren. Es wird nun lange hin und her geredet..." [Such a slave trader goes to the countryside and seeks there a family with daughters only, which they will visit... they have no son and would like to adopt a son. It will be negotiated back and forth for a long while...] "In jedem falle hat die sklavin des recht auf die polizei zu gehen und sich dort über ihren herrn zu beschweren. Die polizei wird den fall untersuchen, und wenn berechtigt wird die sklavin ihren herrn entzogen und in die besserungsanstalt für frauen "Gan Chua Yuean" gebracht, wo sie als tochter oder frau verkaufe sklavin wieder zu sklavenarbeit verwendet, so greift die polizei auch ein, aber nur, wenn das mädchen selbst hingeht und sich beschwert." [In any case, the slave has the right to go to the police and complain about their Lord. The police will investigate the case, and if the right is revoked, the slave is taken from her master are brought to the reformatory for women called "Gan Chua Yuan" where they sell her back into slave labor as a daughter or wife, so too the police also intervenes, but only if the girl herself goes and complains.] "Die ausfuhr von sklavinnen ist streng verboten." [The export of slaves is strictly prohibited.] "Zwei wochen vor der Hinrichtung fingen zwei Chinesische soldaten einen kleinen schulbuben und versuchten von den eltern geld zu erpressen... Die soldaten wurden sofort verhaftet, verhört und zu pole verurteilt... Noch lange bleiben die Chinesen um die beiden Zeichen stehen. Es war ca. 32º in der Sonne, und erst am nächsten tage wurden sie weggebracht." [Two weeks earlier, was an execution of two Chinese soldiers who captured a young schoolboys and tried to extort money from his parents. The soldiers were immediately arrested, interrogated and sentenced to pole. The Chinese surrounded the two characters from a distance. It was about 32º in the sun, and the next day they were taken away.] The second narrative in the journal is in itself a two-part work, dealing with two consecutive journeys in Guangdong. First providing a general description of the province, Glathe then summarizes his observations of the populace and the unique characteristics of thirteen towns and villages visited, some of which were quite remote and diminutive. Some of the latter may, nonetheless, may have offered viable commercial opportunity for one who spoke the language and understood the lay of the land. This portion of the volume comprises 20 pages of text, plus 4 pages of manuscript diagrams, followed by 26 captioned photographs for illustration. A one week journey into central regions, from 20-27 April 1935, discusses specifically Waichow [Huizhou], Poklo [Boluo County], and Tamshui [Danshui]. The second was a three week journey, from 7 to 27 May 1935, to the northernmost inner reaches of the province, during which time he visited and assessed to Tsingyuen [Qingyuan], Yintak, Shiuchow [Chaozhou], Chihing, Namhung, Namon (Kiangsi) [Jiangxi], Gamchow (Kiangsi), Yanfa, as well as the remote villages of Lokchong [Lechang] and of Pingshek. Excerpts from the manuscript's second section, describing travels in Guangdong: Title: Mein Reisen in Südchina. H. Glathe. Im Auftrage der Deutschen Farben-Handelsgesellschaft Waibel & Co., Jebsen & Co. als Agenten in Canton. [My travels in southern China. H. Glathe. On behalf of the German pigment trading company Waibel & Co., Jebsen & Co., agents in Canton.] "Die provinz Kwangtung, ganz im Süden Chinas gelegen, ist eine der schönsten, reichsten - und schon durch ihre geopolitische lege bedingt - auch fortschrittlichten Provinzen des Reiches... Man findet hauptsächlich zwei rassen vertreten- die Eingeborenen, oder Punti und die vor ungefähr 6 bis 700 Jahren zugewanderten Hakka." [The province of Kwangtung (Guangdong), located in southern China, is one of the most beautiful, richest and already conditioned by their geopolitical circumstances - is one of the most progressive provinces of the empire. One finds mainly two races represented, the natives or Punti, and the "Hakka" who immigrated about 600 to 700 years ago.] "Angebaut wird in der Provinz hauptsächlich Reis, Rohrzucker, Hanf, Bataten, Erdnüsse, Obst, Tabak, Maulbeer und Gemüse." [The main agricultural products of the province are rice, sugar cane, hemp, sweet potatoes, peanuts, fruit, tobacco, mulberry and vegetables.] "In vielen städten besteht schon elektrisches licht." [Many cities already have electric light.] "Das Kwangtung immer mehr sein wesen als militärstaat hervorhebt bezeugen die überall anzutreffenden soldaten, mit mustergültiger ausrüstung..." [The Kwangtung increasingly emphasizes its status as a military state, testified by the ubiquitous soldiers with their exemplary standard equipment...] "Waichow [Huizhou]... Die stadt ist auffallend sauber... Der Mangel an Hunden ist damit zu erklären, dass ein junger hund in Kwantung eine delikatesse ist." [The city is remarkably clean... The lack of dogs can be explained by the fact that a young dog is a delicacy in Kwantung.] "Poklo ist ein kleines nest von vielleicht 5000 einwohnern... Das eigenartige bei einem chinesischen hotel ist nämlich, dass die wände nur etwas höher als manneshöhe sind." [Poklo (Boluo County) is a small center with a population of about 5000... One strange characteristic of a Chinese hotel are the walls which are only slightly higher than a man's height.] Harry Glathe was of German and Swiss descent, born on 20 July 1914 (only eight days before the Great War began), in Tsingtao [Qingdao] where his father was a merchant. As an infant he was taken to Switzerland when his father was captured by the Japanese. In 1925 he and his mother were rejoined to his father in Shanghai, who had re-established himself a an import-export business with a friend and colleague. Harry Glathe attended Kaiser Wilhelm school in Shanghai. For a time the family lived in Chefoo, where Alfred Glathe represented HC Augustesen & Co. At a fairly young age, from 1930-1933 Harry was sent to Antwerp, Germany, where he earned his commercial diploma, subsequently returning to China as an employee of his father's firm Glathe & Witt. He worked mainly in Shanghai until 1939, and travelled as a dye and cloth salesman for two other firms from 1933 to 1936, to Yunnan, Guangxi and Guangdonghe during which time he took at least 400 hundred photographs and recorded various aspects of social life. In 1939 he published a 48 page work titled, "The Origin and Development of Chinese Money." Glathe was notably proficient in Mandarin Chinese. He also spoke some Cantonese due to his work in South China. Glathe lived and worked for a short time in Hong Kong in the latter half of 1939, for a firm who then sent him to New Guinea. He was in New Guinea at the outbreak of the Second World War, and until 1946. Alas, just as his father had been before him, he too became a prisoner of war under Japanese rule. After the war, he emigrated with his wife (and possibly children) to Australia. He died circa 1995. A collection comprising a travelogue, photographs and papers, from his life and work in China were donated in 2000 to the National Library of Australia. The author's father, Alfred Glathe (1887-1954), born in Leisnig, Saxony, was a successful merchant in Qingdao and Shanghai, a prisoner of the Japanese in the First World War, a civil servant in Shanghai, and a active advocate for the repatriation of Germans in China. In 1909, at age 22, he went to Qingdao and worked until the beginning of World War I as a clerk in the department store called Sietas, Plambeck & Co. One of his colleagues there was Ludwig Witt, whom he later worked with in Shanghai. In Tsingtao, September 1913, he married Erika Wyss, the daughter of a Swiss official in Andermatt and Harry was born nine months later. Alfred was an active participant in trying to defend his city during the Siege of Tsingtao, October-November 1914, but found himself a prisoner of war, as was Ludwig Witt. His wife and son left for Switzerland. The company Sietas, Plambeck & Co was terminated and the entire property confiscated by the Japanese. In 1920 Alfred was finally released by the Japanese, and joined entered Augustesens' newly founded import-export company called "HC Augustesen, China Trade", the three soon becoming joint owners. By 1925 the firm was a partnership of five co-owner: Augustesen, Glathe, P. Hansen of Mukden, L.A. Witt of Hankou, and A.H. Schmidt of Niuzhuang, which also employed fourteen Germans. In August 1926 Hans Augustesen died. Alfred's wife and son returned to meet him in Shanghai in 1925, Harry then being eleven years old. In 1926, following Augustesen's death, Alfred Glathe and Ludwig Witt jointly founded their own import-export company, Glathe & Witt. In the 1930s Alfred Glathe was then chairman of the German municipality of Shanghai, and from 1 May from 1941 to 1943 a member of the Shanghai Municipal Council. As with many other Germans in China, in July 1946, following the Second World War, Glathe was repatriated to Germany, making the voyage on the "Marine Robin". He immediately found employment from 1946 to 1951 as a business-executive director of the Asia-Pacific Business Association in Hamburg. During this period, he was an active promoter for the repatriation of China Germans. [The Siege of Tsingtao took place between 31 October and 7 November 1914, and was fought by Japan and the United Kingdom against Imperial Germany. The siege was the first encounter between Japanese and German forces and also the first Anglo-Japanese operation during the war.] . Very Good.

      Prag ; London. 1934 ; 1941 ; 1942 - getr. Zähl. 8°, ill.OBrosch. Zeugnisse des Weges Kofflers im Exil. Der Schriftsteller Dosio Koffler, der 1892 im zu Österreich-Ungarn gehörenden Cecowa geboren wurde und 1955 in London starb, gehörte in den 20er Jahren zum Kreis um den Schriftsteller und Dramatiker Berthold Viertel. Seit dieser Zeit war er auch mit dem Filmpublizisten Hans Feld befreundet, mit dem er später den Weg des Exils teilte. Er verfasste Satiren u.a. auf Kaiser Wilhelm II, die von den Nazis zu ?schädlichem und unerwünschtem Schrifttum? erklärt wurden. 1933 emigrierte Koffler nach Prag und 1938 weiter nach London, wo er gesundheitlich angeschlagen unter ärmlichen Verhältnissen lebte. Dort schrieb der von Karl Krauss beeinflußte Autor das beeindruckende Werk ?Die deutsche Walpurgisnacht? - Gemeinsam mit Mephisto bereisen Goethe, Schiller und Nietzsche das grauenvolle nationalsozialistische Deutschland. Es erschien mit einem Vorwort desTIMES-Chefredakteurs Steed. Das Geld aus dem Verkauf der Filmrechte dieses Dramas legt er in Bücher und ein Ex libris, das er sich von der ebenfalls in London lebenden Graphikerin Marie Mauther-Kahlbeck entwerfen ließ, an (siehe das biographische Nachwort von Karl Riha in der Neuausgabe der Walpurgisnacht 1987). Im Londoner Exil war Koffler kurzzeitig im Freien Deutschen Kulturbund aktiv, trat dann aber der antistalinistischen Gruppe Unabhängiger Deutscher Autoren bei, die 1939 von seinem Freund Kurt Hiller gegründet wurde. Das Exemplar Wilhelm II. Ein Film ist am Rücken mit Fehlstelle versehen und am Deckel eingerissen, das Buch Vansittartitis ist innen mit Anstreichungen versehen. 1100 gr. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Moscow Excursion

      New York: Reynal and Hitchcock. [1934]. First. First American edition. Slight soiling on the boards else fine in very slightly spine-toned about fine dustwrapper. Publisher's complimentary copy with slip laid in (stating the date of publication as August 8, 1934 - the date doesn't otherwise appear in the book), and with a Reynal and Hitchcock editor's card laid in. The very uncommon second book by the author of the Mary Poppins series, a travelogue of Russia. The publisher's blurb indicates that Travers: "did what few tourists do, and what no journalist resident in the Soviet Union who wishes to stay there can do - she brought her intelligence to bear on what she saw going on around her, not what was supposed to be going on." Further: "This is no serious analytical survey by a casual traveler, but a personal document which brings to the reader the heart-break, the humor, and the entertainment found in a Moscow excursion by a gay young woman who is at once civilized and intelligent." An especially nice copy, and very uncommon. .

        Scarce Typed Letter Signed on personal stationery

      South Bend, IN 1934 - "Father of Notre Dame Football" for his success in expanding the football program from an intramural activity to a full-fledged sport. He played quarterback and served as head coach from 1896 - 1898, compiling a record of 12-6-1. In 1897 he became the first coach to employ a place kick from the scrimmage, a tactic that soon thereafter became a regular part of the aggressive play of all football teams. Hering was also the first basketball coach at Notre Dame, coaching one season from 1897-1898, and helmed the school's baseball team from 1897-1899. In addition to his many sports accomplishments, Hering is called the "Father of Mother's Day" for his endless work in promoting the establishment of a national holiday. His name has long been obscured in the shadows of Knute Rockne; this is why his letters rarely come to market. 1 page, 10.5 x 7.25 inches, South Bend, Indiana, October 30, 1934. Written to journalist James Hollister, editor of the Evening Eagle, in part: "How graciously you write concerning those who are privileged to make your acquaintance!.Out of experiences of three score years, I can truthfully say that even when we do not merit the depth of the kindly things said or written concerning us, we really do find renewed strength to carry on in activities that receive the approval of the men whose judgment means much to us." Two horizontal folds and faint creasing, but still in very good condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Trina.

      London: William Heinemann,, 1934. Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine black. With the dust jacket. Spine a little rolled; an exceptional copy in the bright, unclipped jacket, with some nicks and short closed tears to extremities, and tape repairs to verso. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Dr Marshall from H.S. Hoff", with a later inked addition (not in the author's hand), including his initials (F.H.B.) and identifying him as a don at Christ's College, Cambridge. Hoff read natural sciences there, graduating in 1933 - a year before publication of this novel. The recipient was likely Professor Francis (Tibby) Marshall (1878-1949), Dean (1926) and Vice Master (1939) at Christ's College. Marshall was a pioneering scholar of mammalian reproduction, and was known affectionately in Cambridge as "Tibby", his pet name for the college cats. This is the author's first book, and the first of four books under his real name; he later wrote under the pseudonym William Cooper. It was published later the same year in the US under the title It Happened in PRK. Scarce in the jacket.

        The Grapes of Wrath.

      New York, 1934. Original illustrated full cloth in very fine condition, with the original pictorial dust-jacket. Pasted-down end-papers with some light brownspotting (due to the original glue). Dust-jacket with a bit of light wear to extremities and very neatly, barely noticeably, re-enforced from verso with fine rice-paper. Not price-clipped. Very nice condition.. First edition ("First published in April 1939" on copyright page" and wrapper with "FIRST EDITION" printed on bottom flap) of this modern classic, one of the Great American Novels, the novel primarily responsible for Steinbeck winning the Nobel Prize, and, as John Timmerman sums up, arguably "the most thoroughly discussed novel... in criticism, reviews, and college classrooms... of 20th century American literature."At the time of publication, "The Grapes of Wrath", as Peter Lisca put it "was a phenomenon on the scale of a national event. It was publicly banned and burned by citizens, it was debated on national talk radio; but above all, it was read."According to The New York Times, it was the best-selling book of 1939, and by February 1940, 430.000 copies of it had been printed. In Februaray, it won the National Book Award and in 1962, the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.In 2005, Time magazine included the novel in its "TIME 100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005"; In 2009, The Daily Telegraph included it in its "100 Novels Everyone Should Read"; in 1998, the Modern Library ranked it tenth on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century; in 1999, Le Monde ranked it seventh on its list of the 100 best books of the 20th century, and in 2003, BBC listed it at number 29 among the "nation's best loved novels".Set under the Great Depression, The Grapes of Wrath" is not only canonical due to its literary qualities, but also due to its historical context. It is noted for its passionate depiction of the poor, which is also the raason for the many contemporary attacks that Steinbeck suffered due to his social and political views

        Manhattan Melodrama [Three Men] (Original screenplay for the 1934 film)

      Los Angeles: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1934. Early draft script for the 1934 film. One of the earliest printed scripts for the film, produced for review by executive producer David O. Selznick, and at 140 pages a good deal longer than the final version, which runs 93 minutes. While not noted, this copy came from the estate of character actor Nat Pendleton, who played the role of "Spud." The famed first pairing of William Powell and Myrna Loy, who would go on to make 14 films together, including the "Thin Man" series. Clark Gable's stardom at MGM was solidified by the film, and it is notable as being one of the earliest roles for Mickey Rooney, who plays Gable's character as a child. The movie John Dillinger saw in Chicago at the Biograph Theatre (he was reputedly a big fan of Ms. Loy) on the night he was gunned down. Garrett was a screenwriter best known for literary adaptations, including "The Story of Temple Drake" (1933), "A Farewell to Arms" (1932), and "Moby Dick" (1930), and with this film won the Academy Award for Best Original Story. Blue studio wrappers, noted as TENTATIVE SCRIPT on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped project No. 1259, dated February 12, 1934, with credits for screenwriters Caesar and Garrett, as well as Selznick. Title page integral with the first page of the script. 140 leaves, mimeograph. Pages and wrapper about Very Good, well used and with moderate soil but completely intact, bound with two gold brads.

        The Black Cat (Original oversize double weight still photograph from the 1934 film)

      Burbank: Warner Brothers, 1934. Vintage oversize borderless double weight black and white photograph from the set of the 1934 film. Snipe in manual type on the verso, mentioning Karloff in "his latest picture for Universal, The Black Cat," and rubber stamps crediting photographer Roman Freulich, noting that the struck print is for an archive, and that the photo is to be an exclusive. A stunning image of Karloff, in full high priest regalia. One of several great films by director Ulmer, and along with "Detour," probably his finest achievement, an efficient tale in which a young couple with a broken down automobile land not in a decidedly art deco haunted house, where Karloff resides and Lugosi, along with the couple is visiting. Michael Weaver notes: "Boldly thumbing its nose at convention, the film is a veritable catalog of human corruption. Sadism, shades of incest, revenge, murder, torture, voyeurism, Satan worship, ailurophobia, necrophilia, rape, and insanity are weaved into the nearly plotless story with remarkable precision." 8.5 x 11.75 inches. Near Fine. Weaver, p. 87-95.
