        The Casino Murder Case

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons. 1934. First. First edition. A very good copy with some smudging and light staining in a supplied but sympathetic, very good, price-clipped dustwrapper with slight internal stains. Inscribed by the author: "To Dr. Hugh Stott Taylor With great appreciation for his gracious assistance, and with warm personal regards. S.S. Van Dine." The English-born Taylor was a chemist who spent much of his life at Princeton, and who in World War II played a prominent role in the American scientific effort, directing a number of research projects, and contributing to the development of the atomic bomb with his discovery of the most effective catalyst for producing heavy water. He was knighted by both the Queen and the Pope in the same month. A Chair in chemistry is named for him at Princeton. The inscription would seem to indicate that Taylor provided advice to Van Dine about the novel (or at least to Willard Huntington Wright, as Van Dine was a pseudonym). A Philo Vance novel, filmed in 1935 with Paul Lukas as Vance, starring opposite Rosalind Russell in one of her earliest roles. .

        Adirondack Mountain Club Guide to Adirondack Trails: Northeastern Section

      Albany NY: Adirondack Mountain Club, 1934. 1st. Soft Cover. Good/No Dust Jacket. A very nice copy of this first edition. The guidebook is still published by the Adirondack Mountain Club, although now it is in its 15th edition and has spawned a huge series of books each dedicated to a different part of the park. Dark green paper wraps with light wear, but otherwise very presentable and well preserved. Both front and rear hinges have reinforcing tape (archival quality repair cloth) inside the cover, but I have seen this on every copy of this book I have sold and it seems it was produced this way. Previous owner's name and some small notations inside on title page, along with a couple of other small notations. Page edges with wear and some very small tears. The pages, text and maps are in otherwise in good or better condition. The maps appear almost unused. The first map is a "Key Map of the Adirondack Park" showing the boundaries and a key the USGS quadrangles. The second is a full fold out map of high peaks trails. The map is black and white with red trails, and covers the quadrangles of Saranac, Lake Placid, Ausable, Santanoni, Mt. Marcy and Elizabethtown. It is wonderful to compare trail maps and see which trails still exist. Also included is a section on a recommended Adirondack library, again very interesting to see what was recommended at that time. Please see image of cover. 116 pages.

        I, Claudius; from the autobiography of Tiberius Claudius, born B.C. 10, murdered and deified A.D. 54

      New York: Harrison Smith and Robert Haas. Very Good- in Very Good dj. 1934. 2nd printing. Hardcover. NOISBN . [light wear to book at extremities, binding just starting to crack between first and section signatures (with slight misalignment of first and second signatures visible at fore-edge), slight indentation and dampstain at top edge of rear cover, light foxing to top edge and fore-edge; jacket shows some wear along top and bottom edges, slight fading at spine, light soiling to rear panel]. (B&W photographs) Biographical/historical fiction at its very finest, not only a compelling read itself but also the basis for one of the most highly-regarded television adaptations of all time, the 1976 BBC production starring Derek Jacobi in the title role. The rather droll jacket blurb catches the spirit of the goings-on wonderfully: "The action is alternately strange, tragic and ludicrous, for Rome knows herself under a long-standing curse ... and has lost all moral self-control. Poison, blasphemy, treachery, incest, black magic, unnatural vice flourish. Insane cruelties are committed. Nobody seems to care." Very uncommon in the original dust jacket, by an uncredited artist who makes old Claudius look like a fairly benign guy. .

Cloth a little darkened on spine with a few minor water stains; in price-clipped dust jacket with few small pieces of tape on verso, sunned spine (lettering not affected) and other wear and minor soiling.

Parker inscriptions are scarce if not rare in our experience.

A superior example of this dust jacket which is prone to tanning. In a review in The Dial, T.S. Eliot said of Ulysses: "I hold this book to be the most important expression which the present age has found; it is a book to which we are all indebted, and from which none of us can escape." He went on to asserted that Joyce was not at fault if people after him did not understand it: "The next generation is responsible for its own soul; a man of genius is responsible to his peers, not to a studio full of uneducated and undisciplined coxcombs." Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 greatest novels of the 20th century.

        Movie Humor - August, 1934 Issue. George Quintana Cover art, "Meet the Toy Friend!"

      Mt. Morris, IL: Norwood Publishing Co., 1934 Mt. Morris, IL: Norwood Publishing Co., 1934. August, 1934 Issue, Volume 1, No. 4. "Good Girl" pin-up cover art by George Quintana, "Meet the Toy Friend!". Contents are illustrated from photographs. Pictorial wrappers, 66 pp. 11 3/8" x 8 3/8". Some rubbing, a few small chips, spine is mostly complete. Quite bright, a solid VG, maybe a bit better. A scarce and iconic issue from the pin-up pulp world of the 1930's, the covers of which, when executed by the likes of George Quintana, Enoch Bolles and Earle Bergey, would currently be dubbed "Good Girl" art. And, that they are. While Bolles covers are scarce enough, Quintana, about which very little else is known but that he painted such covers as these (see scan) is a harder find. Contents are mostly Hollywood studio-produced photos of stars, with plenty of rumor-mill type text as well. The humor derives from the quippy editor-inserted captions next to the photos, mostly cinematic stills. A genre classic for both cover and content. LG-1
