        THE CASE OF THE HOWLING DOG (Presentation Copy of the First Edition)

      New York: William Morrow, 1934. Gardner, Erle Stanley. THE CASE OF THE HOWLING DOG. New York: William Morrow, 1934. First Edition, first printing. A Very Good to Near Fine copy (minor blemishes to the cloth, one tiny fingernail-sized white mark to back cover, a small newspaper biography of Gardner pasted to one corner of the front free endpaper). Lacking the rare dustwrapper. Inscribed in the year of publication by the author: "To one of the cleverest gals in the world from an old admirer...45 god-darn-it. To Tee from Erle. June 1934." Tee Rose, a young writer from San Francisco, became a lifelong friend of ESG (who was, as he indicates, 45 years old at the time of this writing) and she always received his latest book in the mail immediately upon its publication. We have in stock quite a few of his presentation copies to her from 1934 to the early 1960s. THE HOWLING DOG is the fourth mystery in Gardiner's Perry Mason series. When a potential client wants to see Mason about a howling dog and a will, the attorney is uninterested. He does not enjoy drafting wills, and wonders if the man should not see a veterinarian. However, the man's next question, whether a will is legal if the person who made it had been executed for murder, immediately piques Mason's interest.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good to Near Fine.

Harford Connecticut/ New York: James Thrall Soby/Random House, [1934].First edition with the cancel title with the fictitious ìsecond editionîstatement.

Some rubbing to edges of wraps. Front wrap with a few creases. Rear wrap with some minor scuffing. Comb split in one place (yet still holding pages solidly). Still, a very nice copy, with beautiful photographic images throughout."Best remembered for her contribution to Jewish cultural life and for her unique ability to inspire those around her, Corinne Chochem had a distinct impact on Hebrew folk dance, both in her teaching and her two books, Palestine Dances (1941) and Jewish Holiday Dances (1948), the latter an original work for which Leonard Bernstein, Darius Milhaud, Ernst Toch, and Tedesco wrote music based on the original folk tunes. Studying in Israel in 1950, she met and married the painter Yehoshua Kovarsky, and began to study painting. Later in life, under the name of Kovarska, she found fulfillment as a painter with several exhibits in Los Angeles. She used both acrylics and ink. Her final black period was exhibited in New York in 1987." (Jewish Woman's Archive).HBS 65586.$7,500

        The Great Depression

      London: Macmillan and Company, 1934. First edition of the author's classic work on The Great Depression. Octavo, original bluecloth. In very good condition. Rare. This is by far the best book yet written about the great depression. It is clever and wise, brilliant and sound, theoretically thorough, and, at the same time, soberly realistic. It can be read (and it has been widely read) by the practical man, who may learn from it the value of abstract reasoning, and it ought to be studied by the theorist, who can gather from it the importance of a fearless analysis of existing facts and politics" (M. J. Bonn, International Affairs).

For where is Bohun? where's Mowbray? where's Mortimer? nay, which is more, and most of all, where is Plantagenet?" (originally the words of Chief Justice Sir Ranulph Crewe 1558-1646).

        Tobacco Road Original Playbill for Opening Night at the Forrest Theatre [Signed by Erskine Caldwell, Jack Kirkland, Maude Odell, and Margaret Wycherly]

      New York: The New York Theatre Program Corporation, 1934. First edition. Staples Sheets. Very Good +. The Original Playbill for the Opening Night performance of Tobacco Road -- the Play -- at Broadway's Forrest Theatre in New York City, SIGNED BY ERSKINE CALDWELL, JACK KIRKLAND, MAUDE ODELL, and MARGARET WYCHERLY. Originally published in 1932, Erskine Caldwell's novel, "Tobacco Road", centers around the Lesters, a Georgia Sharecropping family living during the Great Depression, and illustrates the effect of deep poverty on their morals and on their behavior. Jack Kirkland adapted the Novel for the stage, but could not get anyone to produce it. Confident in the Play, Kirkland financed it himself, using his life savings of $6,000 to do so. His Play went on to become, at its time, the longest running Broadway Play in history, running for 3,182 performances. (As of July 20, 2014, the Play remained the eighteenth longest-running Play in Broadway History.) The Play starred Maude Odell, one of the 20th Century's best-known actresses, as Sister Bessie Rice, Margaret Wycherly as Ada Lester, and Henry Hull as Jeeter Lester. Of the Play, New York Times theatre critic Brooks Atkinson wrote: "The theatre has never sheltered a fouler or more degenerate parcel of folks than the hardscrabble family of Lester...It is the blunt truth of the characters he is describing, and it leaves a malevolent glow of poetry... As Jeeter Lester, Henry Hull gives the performance of his career. Plays as clumsy and rudderless as 'Tobacco Road' seldom include so many scattered items that leave such a vivid impression." The Play debuted on December 4, 1933 at The Masque Theatre (now called the John Gold Theatre). Although panned by the critics and a commercial failure, Kirkland remained convinced that the Play had a vital dramatic message and refused to give up. When the Play was told to leave the Masque, Kirkland relocated it to the 48th Street Theatre, where, using his now meager funds, he nursed it along for approximately ten weeks. Suddenly, a positive newspaper editorial appeared and magazine writers began to battle the critics over the Play's merits. The Play gained momentum and relocated to the more prestigious Forrest Theatre on 49th Street (now the Eugene O'Neill Theatre) with James Bell, the well-regarded stage actor, replacing Henry Hull who had given the Play up and departed for Hollywood. Performances then ran for nearly seven years, ending on May 31, 1941, both making it the Forrest Theatre's earliest notable production and making Jack Kirkland a rich man. Without the Play and Kirkland's perseverance, "Tobacco Road", the novel, likely would not have gained the fame that it did. It was Kirkland's Play that spawned the novel's success, and it was as a result of the Play that Caldwell's work gained instant fame and sold millions of copies, making it his first financial success and laying the foundation for his reputation as a great Southern writer. (In his Autobiography, Caldwell noted that, at one point during the Play's run at the Forrest Theatre, he was earning approximately $2,000 a week in royalties from the Play and $1,000 a month in royalties from the book. In 1982, Caldwell stated that, to the best of his knowledge, there had not been a week in the then-preceeding 49 years that the Play had not been performed somewhere in the world.) It is all of this which makes the Forrest Playbill an important part of literary history. In Very Good + condition, the Playbill's third page, which serves as the title page for the Play, has been SIGNED BY ERSKINE CALDWELL, JACK KIRKLAND, MAUDE ODELL, and MARGARET WYCHERLY. A SCARCE TO RARE ITEM AND THE FOUNDATION FOR BOTH CALDWELL'S AND HIS NOVEL'S SUCCESS.

        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.
