        Seven Poor Men of Sydney

      London, Peter Davies 1934 - 358p., [1]p advertisement. Original blue cloth with gilt lettering. Light spotting to bottom and fore-edges, spine slightly mottled and faded, minor darkening to spine panel of dustwrapper, few small stains to front panel. A nice first printing of Stead's first novel (set in Sydney in the 1920s) that was published a few months after the appearance of her first work The Salzburg Tales. None of Stead's works was published in her native country until 1965 and this novel is regarded as a path-breaker in Australian fiction lacking both a conventional plot as well as a central protagonist. The work receives a separate entry in The Oxford Companion to Australian Literature. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Gouache aquarellée signée Gino Starace pour la couverture de Mazeppa de Gustave Gailhard, n°303 du Livre Populaire

      Arthème Fayard 1934 Gouache aquarellée signée Gino Starace pour la couverture de Mazeppa de Gustave Gailhard, n°303 du Livre Populaire, Arthème Fayard, 1934. Exécutée sur un carton Canson lavis A à grain satiné de format 17 x 25 cm (marges comprises ; le dessin fait 15 x 24), signée par l'artiste. La cartouche du titre fait partie du dessin original ; un macaron avec le prix de vente est collé. Un papier calque monté sur le haut du canson vient protéger le dessin. Magnifique état. Très belle composition, échevelée, de l'artiste. Giocchino Starace (1859 ? 1950), dit Gino Starace, fut le célèbre illustrateur de la collection du « Livre Populaire » des éditions Arthème Fayard, il en fit un nombre impressionnant de couvertures, choisissant très souvent une scène majeure, violente, étrange, émouvante, du roman, ou bien un portrait saisi dans un sentiment de colère, d'effarement, de terreur. Starace, dit-on, lisait souvent les textes pour choisir la scène qu'il allait composer. Natif de Naples, ce dessinateur italien a dominé presque un demi-siècle de littérature populaire française, grâce à une technique classique irréprochable au service des débordements du genre. Dans Lisibilité, emphase, narrativité (in Tapis Franc n°1, 1988), Daniel Couégnas montre que Starace perçut « la nécessité vitale qui commandait que l'illustration de couverture, cette affiche publicitaire en réduction fût saisie instantanément, appréhendée, déchiffrée de manière univoque par le regard afin de provoquer désir ou curiosité, conditions nécessaires d'une lecture ultérieure du roman ». Il précise que « la force de Starace, c'est sa capacité de synthétiser en une scène les stéréotypes qui renvoient immédiatement le lecteur moyen, médiocrement instruit, à un déjà-lu, ou un déjà-vu, tant historique que dramatique ou psychologique. » Son classicisme marié aux excès mélodramatiques, le choix de couleurs vives, la dynamique du mouvement et l'emphase constituent sa griffe qui culmine avec la folie surréaliste de la série à 65 centimes des Fantômas de Pierre Souvestre et Marcel Allain. Relevons aussi de grands textes de Gaston Leroux (Chéri-Bibi), les Pardaillan de Michel Zévaco, la saga de Rocambole de Ponson du Terrail, Naz-en-l'Air de Souvestre et Allain. (tv) Très bon couverture rigide Edition originale Signé par l'auteur

        Marlborough, His Life and Times, a full set of jacketed British first editions inscribed and dated by Churchill

      This jacketed full British first edition, first printing set of Churchill's Marlborough is inscribed and dated by Churchill in Volume II. Churchill signed only his first name indicating that the recipient was a personal friend or close associate. The inscription is in black ink on four lines on the ffep reading "To Mary M / from / Winston / Nov. 1934". Mary M is Lady Mary Minto - more formally Lady Mary Caroline Elliot Murray Kynynmound, Countess of Minto (1858-1940). Lady Minto was the wife of Gilbert Elliot-Murray-Kynynmound, 4th Earl of Minto (1845-1914) who served as Governor General of Canada from 1898-1904 and Viceroy of India from 1905-1910. When Churchill was a young officer in India seeking notoriety with despatches for The Daily Telegraph, it was Lord Minto who recognized Churchill's talent, but advised Churchill's mother, Lady Randolph, not to sign Winston's name to his work. Churchill's mother initially followed this advice, to the consternation of Winston who subsequently insisted on publishing his name with his despatches: "I had written them with the design of bringing my personality before the electorate. As to getting in trouble with the authorities, I am just as responsible now that they are not signed as if they had been." (Gilbert, Vol. I, pp. 355-356). Rejecting Lord Minto's advice harmed neither Churchill's career nor his relationship with the Mintos; Churchill spent Christmas 1900 as their guest at Government House in Ottawa. Also present was Pamela Plowden, in whom Churchill had harbored strong romantic interest. Still seeing to young Winston's welfare, Lord Minto wrote to Winston's mother "I think he ran no risks here - everything seemed to me to be very tolerably platonic". (Gilbert, Vol. I, p. 544). When Lord Minto was appointed Viceroy of India in 1905, Churchill was already a seasoned five-year veteran of Parliament. This time it was Winston who expressed concerns to Lady Randolph, but Lord Minto proved responsible for much admired reforms under the Liberal government of Churchill's party. (Gilbert, Vol. II, p.95) Lord Minto died in 1914, but Lady Minto lived to see the impetuously talented young man she hosted for Christmas in 1900 become Prime Minister of wartime Britain in 1940. Clearly, their association endured in the interval, as he inscribed this volume to her in 1934. Churchill's monumental biography of his great ancestor, John Churchill first Duke of Marlborough, was a ten year effort and is the most substantial published work of Churchill's "wilderness years" in the 1930s. The final volume was published on the eve of the Second World War. Published in four volumes between 1933 and 1938, Marlborough was well received - both critically and aesthetically. Collectors please note that the inscribed Volume II is a first edition, first printing - not a later printing. This volume is in fine condition. The binding is clean, tight, and square with no fading and virtually no wear. The contents are crisp, bright, and tight, appearing unread. A trivial hint of spotting is confined to the text block edges, which remain bright white with no age-toning. Age has slightly faded the author's inscription, but it remains clear with no ink spreading or smudging. The volume II dust jacket is a true first printing, unclipped and highly complete with minor wear to extremities, minor soiling and spine toning and a closed tear at the upper front hinge. Volumes I, III, and IV are likewise first edition, first printing in correct, unclipped first edition first printing dust jackets. The books are in fine condition, with clean, unfaded bindings, no previous ownership marks, and no spotting. The Volume I, III, and IV dust jackets are all unclipped first printings, varying in condition from very good plus to near-fine plus. All four dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A97.2(I-IV).a, Woods/ICS A40(aa), Langworth p.166.

        Compagni.

      Anni Sessanta. Acrilico su plastica trasparente; separato il supporto su carta spessa interamente colorato in giallo limone e recante la sola prova d'artista in basso a sinistra (II / XX) e la firma per esteso in basso a destra, entrambe riportate a lapis; entrambi i supporti sono di cm 59,7 x 80. Opera completa delle due parti, senz'altro rara e particolare, con firma molto ben leggibile e di assai limitata tiratura. Esemplare cartaceo con macchie di umidit?, a nostro avviso solo alcune delle quali facilmente reversibili, soprattutto diffuse nella parte superiore e al margine laterale destro (la parte centrale e inferiore ? sostanzialmente sana). Nell'insieme l'opera pu? definirsi in discreto stato di conservazione considerato anche il buono stato in cui si trova il supporto plastico. Mario Schifano ? unanimemente considerato uno dei pi? importanti, trasgressivi e originali artisti italiani, nume tutelare della Pop italiana e uno dei pochissimi interpreti del moderno, capace di trasformare la pittura in interprete d'eccezione della civilt? dell'immagine mediatica e tecnologica (e non il contrario). Gli sono state dedicate centinaia di mostre personali e collettive in musei, gallerie, e spazi espositivi fra i pi? importanti del mondo. Mario Schifano (Homs, 1934 - Roma, 1998), muore a soli trentaquattro anni, stroncato da vicende di vita "esagerata". Riduttiva la sua definizione di maestro della Pop Art italiana. A Roma Schifano ? emerso sin dal 1959, anno della sua prima personale. Dall'esordio informale passa subito a superfici monocrome, carte su tela tinte con un solo colore sgocciolante, e poi a tele o fogli usati come "schermi", su cui affiorano frammenti grandi di lettere della Coca - Cola o della Esso. L'impatto col New Dada e la Pop ? evidente, e anche diretto (l'artista va a New York nel 1962 e '63). Schifano conquista la Biennale di Venezia nel 1964. L'anno successivo rende omaggio al Futurismo italiano e nel contempo al mondo dell'infanzia: due diversi "ritorni" al passato come citazione, annunci di cultura postmoderna. A partire dagli anni Settanta realizza film sperimentali, riversa su tela emulsionata immagini riprese dalla televisione, contamina new media e pittura. Pittura "anemica" che torna a dominare negli anni Ottanta - Novanta, con impennate di colori, eleganti trasparenze, accensioni e vibrazioni, con evocazioni di natura come di animali preistorici. Arte che, tra eccessi e cadute esistenziali (anche per storie di droga), ha coniugato intelligenza di cultura innovativa e senso innato della bellezza. Mancanze alla base della tela con perdita di frammenti di colore. .

        Portrait photograph of Beatrice Kaufman

      New York december 10 1934 New York, december 10, 1934. (KAUFMAN, BEATRICE) Approximately 13-1/2 x 11 inches. . Fine, with Van Vechten's stamp on rear, docketed with number, and dated in ink . Beatrice Kaufman (1895-1945) was the wife of wife George S. Kaufman, a playwright in her own right, and the East Coast representative of Samuel Goldwyn Pictures. It was Beatrice who, upon reading the galleys of Steinbeck's OF MICE AND MEN sent to her by Steinbeck's agent Annie Laurie Williams, immediately recognized the dramatic possibilities of the novel and rushed the galleys to her husband. And it was Kaufmann who then acquired the dramatic rights and eventually produced the successful 1937 stage version which ran for 207 performances and became the basis for two subsequent film versions

        GOOD-BYE, MR. CHIPS

      London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1934 First Edition. 8vo., 127pp. A near fine or better copy in bright blue gilt lettered boards in a very good dustwrapper showing modest use; neat bookplate to front pastedown, wrapper with a few tiny chips & a 3/4" loss to the spine crown. 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.. 1st Edition.

This copy Inscribed to Jonathan Cecil, the son of David Cecil who was Powell's boon companion when they both were at Eton, with over twenty corrections and emendations in Powell's hand -- mostly identifying those in the text whose identity had been protected with dashes. Laid in is a Typed Letter Signed by Powell to Cecil at a much later date: "I don't believe I ever gave your father this squib, the origins of which are in my memoirs... I made up the verses during a period of insomnia. A drunken friend had about a hundred printed as a wedding present by a still more drunken printer." .
