        [Photograph]: Group Portrait of Authors

      First. Original platinum photograph. Measuring 15.5" x 7.5". Stamped on the verso ("A Margaret Bourke-White Photograph"). Undated, but our research indicates sometime between 1934 and 1938. The photograph depicts twelve popular journalists and authors of the period, and is Signed by each of them. The photograph, apparently of King Features syndicated columnists and cartoonists, was from the estate of Fred I. Archibald, the publisher of several newspapers including the Baltimore News-Post, and the Baltimore American. Among the represented authors, all who have Signed the photograph, are Damon Runyon, William Soskin, O.O. McIntyre (author of the most widely syndicated column of the first quarter of the 20th Century, New York Day By Day), B.C. Forbes (founder of Forbes magazine, and the father of Malcolm Forbes), journalist Bugs Baer, Wally Knickerbocker, fashion editor (and longtime Miss America pageant judge) Prunella Wood, Alice Hughes, Gilbert W. Gabriel, Lewis Reid, cartoonist W.J. Enright, and one other gentleman we have been unable to identify. .

        Seven Gothic Tales. With an Introduction by Dorothy Canfield

      Harrison Smith and Robert Haas, New York 1934 - Harrison Smith and Robert Haas, New York, First Edition 1934 (Hardcover). Book Condition: Very good plus. Dust Jacket Condition: Marginal. Harrison Smith And Robert Haas, New York, 1st US trade edition. With an introduction by Dorothy Canfield. One small closed tear to front panel and slight rubbing to ends. This is an uncommonly bright copy of the author's first book. Uncut in original red half cloth w. gilt lettering to back and gilt ornamented title to front board. Top capital bumped, otherwise in excellent condition, nice and clean. The true first edition of Blixen's first book, her proper debut, which was published first in America, then in England 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, and died a legendary writer. After she had returned to Denmark, she started properly 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, she found this necessary. Though written under a male pseudonym, the book was not met with instant appreciation. She 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 has written 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 later the same year ("He, who laughs."). It established her reputation, and laid the foundations for her further writings, financially as well as literally. She translated the tales into Danish, and they were published 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 "Syv 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 not until during the war, and especially after, was the particular actuality that the writings possessed fully realized, and this was to become of literary importance" (Politiken's History of Danish Literature - our 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 earlier than the time in which they were written, and they lean against the gloomy and 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".After her breakthrough with "Seven Gothic Tales" Blixen was considered a writer of the greatest importance, and she heavily influenced writers and cultural personas of the generations to come, -many authors recognize the direct inspiration she has had on their writings. Several of her novels have been filmatized; she was nominated for the Nobel Prize [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Postman Always Rings Twice.

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1934 - First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Light wear, else near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing to the crown of the spine and some light reinforcement to the front panel. Signed by the author on the front free endpaper. Housed in a custom quarter morocco box. "It is sometimes easy to trace a literary genre to its source, and James M. Cain's first novel, The Postman Always Rings Twice, is the noir novel that paved the way for all the noir fiction that followed. The famous film starring Lana Turner and John Garfield is notoriously dark, but the novel is even more full of despair and devoid of hope. It is a short book--little more than a novella--but its searing characterization and depiction of tawdry greed and lust is branded into every reader's memory" (Otto Penzler). Listed on Modern Library as one of the 100 great novels of the twentieth century. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

After having published some of the best works on Russian ballet, he died in January 1934 - that is ten months before the printing of the present work: a rare example of posthumous dedication!

        [Two Original Autograph Letters, Signed, to Harold J. Massingham]

      Crux Easton, Near Newbury, Berkshire. 29 December [ny] & [nd, but no later than 1934].. Four pages, very closely written in ink, on three octavo sheets of letterhead. Ca. 400 words. A few small brown spots, otherwise very good. Collier writes to "Dear Massingham" about his contribution of an essay to a collection he is editing, most certainly ENGLISH COUNTRY: FIFTEEN ESSAYS BY VARIOUS AUTHORS (Wishart, 1934). He apologizes for his late response due to illness, but agrees: "Of course I should like to do the essay, for country matters are the only things I care about. And I think it very sporting of you to ask me, considering what a torrent of abuse my unfortunate Tennyson essay provoked ... But I don't live in Berkshire and never have, except for a few months last year while they pretended to repair this house. This is north Hampshire; Berks and Wilts are both five or six miles away, though country characteristic of each comes up to within a mile or two of these woody, clay-topped hills ... I should like to keep within very close range of this house, for I scarcely ever go beyond the boundaries of the little manor on which it stands ...There is plenty in this place to make a book of. Cobbett talks a lot about it, Pope used to come here, the Romans had a road house where half the cottages now stand ... What I think I shall make most of, is that this is a very highly preserved game country (no hunting even) ... Then that would lead me into a description of the art and joy of shooting, and an attack on the damned dull fools who make a dreary slaughter of it, and its good & bad effects on wild life and wild flowers and so on. Then there's farming and gardening ...." He suggests other topics, and makes further comments, and in the second letter gives an update on progress, noting the resolution of an issue about the future rights to the essay, now resolved by his agent with Wishart. Each letter is signed in full.
