        THE MIME OF MICK NICK AND THE MAGGIES. A FRAGMENT FROM WORK IN PROGRESS

      The Servire Press; New York: Gotham Book Mart, The Hague 1934 - Also Pristine, Unopened, and with Original Glassine. 241 x 162 mm (9 1/2 x 6 3/8"). 4 p.l. (first blank), 77, [3] pp. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES on Old Antique Dutch (this is copy # 631). (There were also 29 special signed copies on Japon.). Plain paper wrappers in white dust jacket, front cover with design by Lucia Joyce printed in blue and silver, blue titling on front cover and spine, ENTIRELY UNOPENED. With the very rare original glassine and housed in a (slightly worn) brown cardboard slipcase. With opening initial and tailpiece designed by Lucia Joyce. Slocum & Cahoon A-43. Glassine a little wrinkled, one corner just lightly bumped, otherwise A PRISTINE COPY. This is another fragment from "Finnegans Wake," beautifully printed in Holland on thick paper using an unusually large, round, and vaguely Medieval typeface. Our copy could hardly be in better condition--as close to mint as one could hope to find, and with all original components. Joyce's daughter Lucia (1907-82) was diagnosed with schizophrenia when in her early twenties and was permanently institutionalized by 1935. She had desperately tried, and failed, to become a dancer, and Joyce was determined to find a new artistic outlet for her, believing it would be therapeutic. He hit upon the design of ornamental capitals like this one, and even went so far as to give publishers the money to pay her for her work. FIRST EDITION. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES on Old Antique Dutch (this is copy # 631). (There were also 29 special signed copies on Japon.) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Die Legende von den vier Teilen des Tages.

      Klostermann,, Ffm., 1934 - Ffm., Klostermann, 1934. 23 S., 2 Bl. OBrosch. mit Japanbezug. Erstausgabe. - Max Kommerell (1902-1944) war lange Zeit ein Anhänger des George-Kreises. Um 1928 versuchte er sich von diesem Kreis zu lösen und wurde 1930 von Vittorio Klostermann für dessen neu gegründeten Verlag in Vertrag genommen. Diese Freundschaft sollte lange, jedoch nicht immer harmonisch sein. Kommerell hatte Mühe, sich ganz vom George-Kreis zu lösen, was erst dem Nationalsozialismus gelang nachdem sich Kommerell noch bis 1933 dafür eingesetzt hatte, der Jugend "über diesen Kräftestrom" die Augen zu öffnen und Hitlers Mein Kampf für "borniert, bäuerisch ungeschlacht, aber in den Instinkten vielfach gesund und richtig" gehalten hatte, so verlor er in eben diesem Jahr alle Illusionen, die Nationalsozialisten "geistig aufbessern" zu können. Ein Grund war sicher, dass er sich für den dem Regime missliebigen Philosophen Kurt Rietzler einsetzte und dadurch das Amt des Dozentenführers verlor und der Ruf auf einen Lehrstuhl in weite Ferne rückte. 1934 schickte er Klostermann das Manuskript der "Legende von den vier Teilen des Tages" und schrieb: "Anbei schicke ich Ihnen mein Poem. Mit der Bitte, dass Sie es in irgend einer Form veröffentlichen. Ich habe sehr viel darin deponiert, und diese stille Wirkung auf Ähnlichgesinnte ist fast das Einzige, was mir noch wichtig ist und mich freut - wer weiss, wie lange das noch möglich ist." Seiner schweren Krankheit, die ihn seit 1941 immer wieder zu ausgedehnten Sanatoriumsbesuchen zwingt, ringt er noch einige Werke ab. Zuletzt musste er seine Briefe seiner Frau diktieren. - Max Kommerell schaffte die grosse Publizität nie und doch zeigt sich vor allem seine Essayistik als eine wirkungsvolle Stömung. Sie stellt eine eigenständige und tief reflektierte Annäherung an die grosse Literatur dar, die Max Kommerell als ein "Schicksal" begreiflich zu machen suchte. - Schöner, breitrandiger Druck. - (Einband etwas stockfleckig) - Sehr selten!

        THE LEFT REVIEW WRITER'S INTERNATIONAL

      London. October 1934 through May 1938.. I:1,3-12; II:1-16; III:1-7,9,10,14-16 (wanting five numbers for all published). Thirty-nine issues. Large octavo. Printed wrappers. Illustrations. Occasional staple rust, occasional foxing to a few wrappers, two wrappers rather soiled (one of them with spine split), else generally a good to very good run. Edited variously by Montagu Slater, Edgell Rickword, Randall Swingler, et al. The successor to VIEWPOINT as the organ of the British section of the Writers' International. In its time, according to Sullivan, et al, it had the second largest circulation of any literary magazine in the U.K. Its concern with reconciling aesthetics with left of center politics was serious, and during Rickword's editorship (II:4 through III:5) it published a considerable body of significant writing. Its final period, under Swingler's editorial control, was marked by greater control by the CP and a more political/doctrinaire tone. Contributors include Sassoon, Aragon, Shaw, Mitchison, Lehmann, Spender, Ackland, Barker, Bates, Auden, Hanley, S.T. Warner, Day Lewis, Gellert, Gide, Graves, Jameson, Jack Lindsay, Masereel, Gill, Read, Wells, Muir, Neruda, et al. " The left review presents by far the most distinguished leftist poets and critics of our times. Its deliberate consistency of aim gives the contributions a clarity and assurance which is lacking in many other radical magazines" - Hoffman, et al. SULLIVAN (MODERN), pp.217-22. HOFFMAN, et al, p. 321.

        [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. .

        3 (2 typed and 1 autogr.) letters signed.

      New York, [1933 and 1934]. - 8vo. Altogether 3 pp. on 4 ff. With 2 envelopes. To Mrs. Roland G. Hopkins from the Women's City Club of Boston: "I am asking Doubleday Doran to send you a copy of Paul Engle's 'AMERICAN SONG', which they're just publishing, because I thin both you and Mrs. Russell would be interested in seeing it. He's the young Iowa poet I spoke to you about and I think he has real abilities. And so often a book of poems gets sloughed under by the flood of novels etc. and never happens to reach the people who would like it. And, as Engle is a friend of mine, I resolved that at least his book would get into the hands of a few people who might value it [.]". - Partly on stationery with printed letterhead.

        THE SPIRIT OF MAN. AN ANTHOLOGY IN ENGLISH & FRENCH FROM THE PHILOSOPHERS & POETS MADE BY THE POET LAUREATE IN 1915 & DEDICATED BY GRACIOUS PERMISSION TO HIS MAJESTY THE KING

      Longmans, Green and Co. Ltd., London 1934 - Green cloth with approximately 330 pages printed on thin (but strong) India paper. An anthology of inspirational writing first published in 1916 during the First World War. With a SIGNED gift inscription from three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Thornton Wilder on the front free endpaper: "Charlotte Lincoln/from Thornton/Jan. 3. 1936." The recipient was evidently a relative, as both Charlotte and Lincoln are Wilder family names. Thornton Wilder's paternal grandparents were Amos Lincoln Wilder and Charlotte Topliff Wilder. His great-grandmother was Lucy Lincoln. Thornton's Wilder's sister was named Charlotte, and he had at least one other close family member (an aunt) by that name. Our research indicates the Lincoln in "Charlotte Lincoln" was probably a middle name, since the Wilders often used family surnames as middle names. Thornton Wilder's middle name, for example was Niven, his mother's maiden name. Beyond that, we were unable to pinpoint exactly which relative "Charlotte Lincoln" was from Wilder's large family. Mild foxing, browning to endpapers. Near Fine [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        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.
