        18 POEMS

      London: The Sunday Referee and The Parton Bookshop, [1934].. Gilt cloth. Endsheets and fore-edges somewhat foxed, else a nice copy (with spine gilding still bright), in similarly foxed printed dust jacket with two tiny chips and tears at the spine ends and one chip at the lower edge of the rear panel. Half morocco slipcase and chemise First edition, first state of the binding, of the author's first book. A total of 500 sets of sheets were printed, of which 250 sets were bound up in December of 1934 in this fashion, and the remaining 250 sets of sheets in February, 1936. This copy is signed by Thomas in the upper quadrant of the free endsheet, and has a gift inscription incorporating that signature: "To Ethel from Bert, and Dylan Thomas ... Xmas 1934." "Bert" was Albert Lancaster Lloyd (1908-1982), the prominent British folklorist, singer and Communist activist who, in the late 1930s, was commissioned by the BBC to undertake documentaries on sea-faring life and the rise of Nazism in Germany. He co-edited THE PENGUIN BOOK OF ENGLISH FOLK SONGS (1959) and was a key figure in the folksong revival of the 1950s and 1960s. Laid in is a brief note of presentation, signed "Bert," noting that "Dylan's stuff ... [is] the best young poetry there is; better even than George's [Barker?] or David Gascoyne's. He signed [the book] specially for you." "These first poems (very uneven) shattered for those who discovered them the whole revolutionary optimism of the 'thirties" - Connolly. ROLPH B1a. MODERN MOVEMENT 78a. HAYWARD 343.

        Tobacco, Pipes and Smoking Customs of the American Indians

      Milwaukee: Public Museum of the City of Milwaukee, 1934 2 volumes: 477 pages with one plate, maps, figures and index; 257 plages including maps. Quarto (10 3/4" x 7") issued in wrappers. Bulletin of the Public Museum of the City of Milwaukee, Volume XVII. 1st edition. Tobacco was smoked in the Americas long before its organized cultivation began somewhere around 5000 to 3000 BC. Tobacco use was ceremonial and ritualistic for the natives with the leaf not only being smoked, but also chewed, drunk, taken as snuff and even given as enema. Tobacco was considered as a means of communicating with the supernatural world and was also believed to have medicinal properties. Mayans considered it a divine plant and many Mayan gods are depicted smoking. The name tobacco came from a misunderstanding of the Spaniards who thought the dried leaves were called tobacco when the indigenous name tabaco actually meant the tube or pipe in which the natives smoked the leaves. Tobacco was introduced in the court of Catherine de Medici in 1560 by Jean Nicot. The word nicotine was coined. Condition: Edge wear with some closed tears and chips, spines sunned, some light foxing, corners bumped else a very good copy. . First Edition. Original Wrappers. Very Good. Quarto.

A near fine copy in a very good plus pictorial dust jacket (first. state priced "2/6" on the spine panel; the later state jacket was. priced 1/-) with minor chipping at spine ends and some rubbing at. edges. A fresh, lovely example of this jacket with colorful front. panel just about immaculate. Quite scarce in this condition. (#126693). First edition. Part of the "Creeps" series. England in the 1930s, lacking the pulp magazines of America, tended to publish its popular fiction in book form, in the big anthologies given away as subscription premiums by London newspapers, and, most importantly for weird fiction enthusiasts, in the well-received "Not At Night" series edited by C. C. Thompson and the "Creeps" series edited (anonymously) by Charles Birkin. Philip Allan's thirteen "Creeps" anthologies were augmented by about ten single-author collections, of which this is the crown jewel, collecting ten notably weird and imaginative tales. "... an exceptionally fine collection of horror stories." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, p. 264. Regrettably, this was the author's only book. Barron (ed), Horror Literature 3-130. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1015. Wilson, Shadows in the Attic, p. 330. Bleiler (1978), p. 123. Reginald 09028.

How many copies were disposed of in this manner is unknown. The highest numbered copy we have examined is 165. - Siegel. [Siegel #83]. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Tender is the Night: A Romance

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1934 First edition, first printing. Inscribed and signed by the author in black ink on front endpaper: "For Margaret Hurley / with much respect / + regard from / F Scott Fitzgerald / April 1936 / Ashville". Bound in the publisher's original dark blue cloth. A near fine copy, with some wear to the spine ends, light rubbing to the corners, a hint of spotting on the page edges and the front and back hinges. Overall, a very attractive copy. Fitzgerald inscribed this copy of Tender is the Night to his friend James B. Hurley's wife. Hurley as a clerk at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina, a resort hotel where the author resided from 1935 - 1936. Fitzgerald first traveled to Asheville on an extended visit due to personal health concerns about his lungs and stayed after he moved his wife Zelda to the Highland Hospital at Asheville. Hurley worked for Fitzgerald for nine months after applying to a classified advertisement for a typist. He typed Fitzgerald's manuscripts, manually manipulating his typewriter to create a triple-space between lines, Fitzgerald's preferred layout for editing. Additionally, Fitzgerald had Hurley assist with his finances, including contacting The Saturday Evening Post for payments when Fitzgerald's checking account was running low. When the two parted ways, Fitzgerald bequeathed Hurley with two manuscripts for his short stories and three signed novels, including this one. Bruccoli and Baughman, 124. Tender is the Night is Fitzgerald's last completed novel, centering on the life of American ex-patriots living in Paris and the French Riviera. Like many of his works, it is semi-autobiographical in nature, with Fitzgerald's friends serving as models for characters, including Pablo Picasso, the Cole Porters, and socialites Sara and Gerald Murphy, to whom the book is dedicated.. Illus. by Shenton, Edward. Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine.

      [No place: no publisher. 1934]. Typed manuscript. Bradbound mimeographed sheets. 554pp. Stiff textured wrappers with title label and a sticker for the Rialto Service Bureau which performed the typing and mimeographing.

Beatrice Kaufman (1895-1945) was the wife of wife George S. Kaufman, a playwright in her own right, and the East Coast representative of Samuel Goldwyn Pictures. It was Beatrice who, upon reading the galleys of Steinbeck's OF MICE AND MEN sent to her by Steinbeck's agent Annie Laurie Williams, immediately recognized the dramatic possibilities of the novel and rushed the galleys to her husband. And it was Kaufmann who then acquired the dramatic rights and eventually produced the successful 1937 stage version which ran for 207 performances and became the basis for two subsequent film versions
