        Man Ray, photographies 1920-1934 Paris (2d ed.)

      James Thrall Soby / Random House 1934 - 7 De coleccionista-muy bueno./ Collector's item-very good. Spiral bound professionally restored. Slight marks of handling and wear on the edges of the illustrated cover. Otherwise, book interior in excellent conditions. Product description: This is a very rare first edition, second printing of Man Ray’s highly acclaimed, "Man Ray Photographs 1920 – 1934 Paris" published by James Thrall Soby (with Random House) & Cahiers d'Art, Hartford & New York / Paris in 1934. There is controversy surrounding the actual edition of this book. Writing in The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century, Andrew Roth wrote points out that the first edition, second issue, with the fictitious "Second Edition" on the cancel title page was placed there by the publisher who "attempted to generate demand where none existed by suggesting the edition had sold out. After replacing the title pages of these copies with one stating second edition, he returned them for sale." Regardless of the issue point, Parr & Badger in their book, "The Photobook: A History", state that the Man Ray photographs contained in this edition are "regarded by some as amongst the greatest of the twentieth century. This was Man Ray’s first monograph and his friends pulled out all the stops to herald it. It contains poetry and essays by the leading figures of the Dada and Surrealist movements: André Breton, Paul Éluard, Marcel Duchamp (written under his famous pseudonym "Rrose Selavy") and Tristan Tzara. Containing 84 stunning full page black and white monochromes (photographs) and 19 rayographs, the book is a tall quarto (12" x 10") that is spiral bound in stiff photographically illustrated wrappers.

        Autograph letter, signed.

      Amherst 1934 - Single sheet measuring 6 1/8 by 8 inches. Addressed to Mr. Cutler, who was the principal of Athol High School in Massachusetts. Dated November 14, 1934, Frost appears to be responding to Cutler's request for a lecture, which he declines due to "being sent south for my health," though he adds that "(t)he health is no very serious matter but serious enough for caution." Although overtly a standard reply, there is a great deal of biographical subtext at play in this letter. A month or so after this letter, Elinor Frost wrote to her friend Edith Fobes, noting that "(w)e are here in the South on Robert's account. He is hoping to avoid one of those grippe and rheumatic infections that he has suffered from the last two winters." Ironically, though, it was Elinor who was suffering the most during this time, as 1934 also marked the year in which the Frosts' youngest daughter, Marjorie, died from complications during the birth of her first child. In the same letter to Fobes, Elinor wrote that she had suffered "a severe attack of angina," which, she reported, "is added to the other heart complications." These would eventually lead to her death from a heart attack in March, 1938. A fine letter, with the original holograph envelope.

        Good-bye, Mr. Chips

      Little, Brown, & Company, Boston 1934 - First American Edition and true 1st hardcover edition of this book. Price of $1.25 front flap, title page date 1934, copyright page states copyright 1934, published June 1934. Very Good Plus book, period bookstore sticker front pastedown, 2 pages small corner crease bottom corner, light foxing to page block edges, and spine a bit age-toned, in a beautiful Very Near Fine dustjacket with tiny creases at top edges of spine and flap folds. The American 1st edition was published in June 1934, and by the time the Hodder & Stoughton British hardcover was published in Oct. 1934, Little Brown had already published its106th thousand copy. Previous to the hardcover publications, it had been published as a supplement for an English newspaper and by the Atlantic Magazine. Having benefited from Little Brown's success with the book, the H & S 1st printing would have been much larger than Little Brown's, and indeed, the LB 1st is much the scarcer of the two. Filmed twice, the 1939 film was directed by Sam Wood, winning a Best Actor Oscar for Robert Donat and garnering six other Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actress for Greer Garson. The 1969 film was directed by Herbert Ross, starred Peter O'Toole, Petula Clarke and Michael Redgrave, and garnered two Oscar nominations. "Good-bye, Mr. Chips" was also made into a 1984 TV mini-series and a 2002 TV series. A truly gorgeous copy, and quite SCARCE. Pictures are available upon request.

Basis for two films: the 1939 version directed by Sam Wood with Robert Donat who beat out Clark Gable, Henry Fonda & others for the Best Actor Oscar & the 1969 Herbert Ross directed re-do with Peter O'Toole, Petula Clark & Michael Redgrave. Faults notwithstanding a nice copy of Hilton's most famous title, an honour shared with his Classic 'Lost Horizon'. Hilton was born in Lancashire, England in 1900; son of John Hilton, headmaster of Chapel End School in Walthamstow. His father was one of the inspirations for the character of Mr. Chipping in the novel. Hilton was born on Wilkinson Street in Leigh & there is a teacher in Goodbye, Mr. Chips called Mr. Wilkinson. The setting too is believed to have been based on the Leys School, Cambridge, where James Hilton was a pupil. Chipping is also likely to have been based on W. H. Balgarnie, one of the school's masters who was in charge of the Leys Fortnightly, where Hilton's first short stories & essays were published. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        MOSS ROSE.

      London: William Heinemann Ltd., [1934]. - First edition. Light foxing to a few preliminary pages else near fine in professionally restored dust jacket at spine ends, corners, and top edge of rear panel. Pseudonym of Gabrielle Margaret Vere Campbell. This is one of the author's many fascinating novels based upon actual murder cases using her own interpretations as to what actually happened and who was really guilty. MOSS ROSE is based upon an 1872 murder of a prostitute named Buswell, which was never solved. Belle Adair, is the young woman "of good birth and education but quite ruined in reputation," who knew the truth of what the police had to dismiss as "an unsolved mystery." "How she used her knowledge and silence and her power over the murderer to re-enter the society to which she had been born, and to lift herself from degradation, is the theme of Mr. Shearing's novel." Additionally the movie of the same name, a film noir selection, was issued in 1947 by Twentieth Century-Fox and directed by Gregory Ratoff. The film starred Peggy Cummins as Belle Adair aka Rose Lynton, Victor Mature, Ethel Barrymore, Vincent Price, Margo Woode, George Zucco, Patricia Medina, and Rhys Williams. 20th Century Crime & Mystery Writers says, "Although these are not feminist novels, they often show Victorian women bored by narrow interests, incapable of self-preservation, held down by male authority, and Shearing is very successful in establishing a tone of brutal sexuality without recourse to explicit detail. Yet many of her "strong" women, are unsympathetic, calculating, and manipulative." A selection of Kevin Johnson's THE DARK PAGE, and an exceptional copy. THE DARK PAGE p. 220 & 221.

      E.P. Dutton 1934 - A handsome Fourth Printing (so stated) of Houdini's paper magic trick book in a scarce dustjacket. A fascinating book of tricks ranging from simple to more complicated with full directions. Originally published in 1922. 206 pp. In green cloth with orange titling, the book is in very good condition with some lightening to the spine, light foxing on the covers and top edge and an occasional very small spot in the book, but overall the book interior is clean and bright. The bottom and fore edges are rough cut and only slightly toned. The scarce dustjacket is complete in bright yellow soft cotton paper with advertisements for "Gypsy Rickwood's Fortune-Telling Book," "Miracle Mongers and Their Methods," There is lightening on the dustjacket spine, and small seam splits at the spine ends and o the panel seams; although overall the dustjacket is very solid. A wonderful copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Jonah's Gourd Vine

      Philadelphia/London: J.B. Lippincott Company. Very Good+ in Good dj. 1934. First Edition. Hardcover. NOISBN . (price-clipped) [a solid clean copy, firmly bound, with light fading to cloth at spine and around edges of both covers, minor browning/soiling to page edges, gift inscription on ffep and one-time owner's name in ink at bottom of rear pastedown; jacket is edgeworn, moderately soiled, missing pieces at both ends of the spine (including loss of most of "Jonah's" at top), old internal tape repair/reinforcements at some of the folds, and the ffep gift inscription has offset onto the front jacket flap -- but the front panel is substantially intact and still quite attractive]. The author's first novel and first published book, "the life story of a big, lovable Georgian negro," preacher and carpenter John Pearson, and his wife, "little black-eyed Lucy Potts" -- basically thinly fictionalized portrayals of Hurston's own parents. Hurston was well-established as a short-story writer and folklorist, and her first book was widely anticipated -- as evidenced by the publisher's ability to recruit jacket blurbs from Carl Van Vechten and Fannie Hurst, the latter also supplying the book's introduction. .
