        THE CASE OF THE HOWLING DOG (Original 1934 Screenplay, Heavily Annotated)

      Burbank: Warner Brothers, 1934. THE CASE OF THE HOWLING DOG. [Erle Stanley Gardner] [Ben Markson] ORIGINAL HEAVILY ANNOTATED SCREENPLAY for the 1934 film adaptation of Erle Stanley Gardner's famous early Perry Mason novel of the same name. Burbank, California: Warner Brothers, May 26th, 1934. 132-page mimeographed TYPESCRIPT OF THE FINAL DRAFT in original brad-bound studio wrappers. Blue revision pages dated June 6, 1934 are scattered throughout. There are a further 7pp of notepaper, heavily penciled, also bound in. The covers are lightly worn, the pages well-thumbed; in terms of appearance: a Very Good example. Of the many original film scripts we have handled, this is the most copiously annotated. Every single page has some sort of marking either in ordinary pencil or red pencil. It is clearly the "master" copy as every single shot is notated and numbered, there is much penciled revision of the dialogue, the smaller speaking roles name the actors who are playing that part; props & wardrobe & staging are all meticulously detailed. In particular, given there are dozens of sketches showing how each individual scene will be blocked out and camera-angled. It seems likely that this script belonged to director Alan Crosland (famous for having directed the first talkie THE JAZZ SINGER). The film starred Warren William and Mary Astor and was the very first film adaptation of an Erle Stanley Gardner Perry Mason novel (five other Perry Mason films were produced in the 1930s). In the case, Perry Mason (played with 1930s style and sophistication by Warren William -- unlike the later TV version played by Raymond Burr as more hard-nosed) gets caught between two feuding neighbors who each claim to be married to the same woman. There is a murder, Mary Astor is the accused killer, Perry Mason defends her successfully at her trial, the key component of the defense hinges on the howling of a dog. Sold with an original movie still featuring Warren William and Mary Astor. Unique.. Signed.

        SCARLET EMPRESS, THE (1934)

      Paramount 1934 - Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Marlene Dietrich, Sam Jaffe, John Loder, C. Aubrey Smith, Gavin Gordon, dir: Josef von Sternberg; Paramount. One of the finest lobby cards for one of film histories most truly bizarre movies. Perhaps this was Von Sternberg's answer for Dietrich to her great competitor Greta Garbo's QUEEN CHRISTINA. While that film attempted to tell an accurate historical account of a historic queen, this film was a major experiment in style. The basis was the story of Princess Sophia of Germany who is taken to Russia to marry half wit Grand Duke Peter (played with aplomb insanity by Jaffe). The Princess is repulsed by him, finds love with a Russian soldier and produces a son. No ones asks questions and she moves on to become Catherine the Great. Much of the film was silent and drenched in Gothic sets, set pieces and artifice, shot through diffusions of all kinds and lit in expressionistic ways which have never been duplicated. It became an homage by von Sternberg (who was by now obsessed) to Dietrich. Dietrich is swathed in a fur creation by Travis Banton. There are a few scattered pinholes to an otherwise perfect card with vibrant colors, FINE.

        Man Ray Photographs 1920 - 1934 Paris (First Edition, Second Issue)

      Hartford & New York / Paris : James Thrall Soby (with Random House) & Cahiers d\'Art, 1934. 1st Edition 2nd Printing. Soft cover. Very Good. This is a 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 Ã?luard, 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 inches) that is spiral bound in stiff photographically illustrated wrappers. The condition of the wrappers is Very Good+ with some edge wear, rubs and soiling with 2 of the plastic rings on the top and 1 on the bottom broken. The interior is in Near Fine condition with no foxing and a few very minor tears to the edge of 5 of the pages. Overall, this is a highly desirable copy of a notoriously fragile book rarely found in this condition. Cited in both The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century by Andrew Roth and The Photobook: A History by Parr and Badger.

        MORE PRICKS THAN KICKS

      London: Chatto & Windus, 1934.. Tan cloth, lettered in blue. Spine cocked and somewhat rubbed and a bit darkened, engraved bookplate on front pastedown (Sir George Bull, Baronet of Hammersmith), modest tanning at edges, faint discoloration to top stain, otherwise a good, sound copy, without the rare dust jacket. First edition of Beckett's first collection of short fiction, by most assessments his scarcest trade publication. The edition consisted of approximately 1500 copies, of which only a third sold. Beckett was reluctant to allow its reprinting, finally relenting only in 1966 for the "Hors Commerce" edition for scholars, which paved the way for the public editions of later years. F & F 16.

        L. to B

      Privately Published. Hardcover. This is a very rare collector's piece that was privately published in very small numbers for private circulation among family and friends. It is an autobiographical account of a famous journey by two friends - Peter Hogg and "Zumph" Edelsten from Lympne to Baghdad and back again during the summer break of 1934 in a surplus Bistol Fighter. It is also signed with a dedication from Zumph's mother Helen, to "Fergie" another person featured in the account. The cloth binding over the spine and corners is fairly worn in raised areas and the paper covering of the boards has deteriorated significantly over time. The hinges and bindings are good and strong and the book features tipped in photographs - the silver can clearly be seen in the surface of the developing paper. The pages are generally clean with one or two having some foxing in the margins. Regrettably, the upper edges of the pages have deteriorated and are very fragile and flaking with some staining in the area, this is mainly in the earlier stages of the book and does not affect the text. . Good. 1939.
