        Noel. Christmas Echoes Down the Ages, Recaptured by Robert K. Shaw

      Achille J. St. Onge, Worcester 1935 - (30)ff. One of 278 copies. This copy is unnumbered and inscribed "with high regard" by the author to Mrs. J. H. Soliday, i.e. H. Marion Soliday, a noted collector and member of the LXIVMOS. With her daughter and son-in-law, she wrote "Chats About Miniature Books," a true miniature book about miniature books. Also included with this copy are two sample leaves of a proposed second edition of the book that was never published. The leaves show two different settings of the title page and first two text pages, dated 1957. Noel was produced by the same companies that printed and bound the disastrous Inaugural Address of Thomas Jefferson in 1943, of which all but 33 copies were destroyed by St. Onge because of their poor quality. It is possible that St. Onge planned to republish Noel in a larger edition using a different printer and binder, but never completed the project. A collection of poetic tributes to Christmas, Noel was written by Robert K. Shaw, a librarian at the Worcester Public Library and microbibliophile whose article on miniature books led St. Onge to publish this, his first miniature book, in 1935. Frontispiece of the Madonna and child by Bernardino dei Conti, courtesy of the Worcester Art Museum, tipped in. An extremely fine, crisp copy in full red leather with the title in gilt on the front cover. A unique example of one of the most sought after St. Onge titles. (Massmann 1; Welsh 6350; Bondy, p. 169; MBC I: No. 3, p. 5; Bradbury, p. 251). (2 7/16 by 1 11/16; 62x44mm). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Fine condition.Will Harridge (1883-1971), A.L. President from 1931-1958, was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972. Edward Barrow (1868-1953), was inducted into the Baseball HOF in 1953. As Business Manager from 1920-1945, Barrow's Yankees won 14 American League pennants and 10 World Series.Southpaw Vitautris Casimirus Tamulis (1911-1974) began his major league career with the New York Yankees on September 25, 1934, hurling 5-0 shutout in Philadelphia against Connie Macks' Athletics. Vito allowed just seven singles. Lou Gehrig hit his 48th home run of the season. In 1934, Gehrig won his only Triple Crown, leading the major leagues in home runs (49), batting average (.363), and RBIs (165). After the 1934 season, Babe Ruth signed as a free agent with the Boston Braves.From BaseballLibrary.com about Vito Tamulis: "The fun-loving junkballer couldn't stick with the staid Yankees despite a 10-5 rookie 1935 season [for which he was paid $3000 according to this contract]. He landed in Brooklyn, where fans loved his encounters with Cardinals slugger Johnny Mize. Tamulis would come halfway to the plate, telling Mize he would strike him out with his rainbow change. Mize would often take futile swings at the floater.""

        The Good Earth" by Pearl S. Buck

      Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Corporation, Culver City, CA 1935 - 4to, 119 mimeograph pages, brad bound in pale blue wrappers, stamped "Complete" and with the MGM Script Dept label on front. Very early version of the screen adaptation of Buck's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel -- it would also propel her to the Nobel Prize for Literature. Connelly (whose name is misspelled as "Connolly" on the front wrapper) was among the early writers to attempt the adaptation from the stage version. There were some twenty writers ultimately involved before the film, directed by Sidney Franklin (with an uncredited assist from Victor Fleming) and starring Paul Muni and Luise Rainer, opened in 1937. The film was nominated for Academy Awards in most major categories, including Best Picture and Director, and won two: one for Luise Rainer as Best Actress (it was the second of Rainer's back-to-back Oscars, a feat unmatched for many years and which led ironically to the abrupt end of her film career -- she would live on in Europe until 2014, when she died at age 104) and one for cinematographer Karl Freund. This is an early, and rather rough, shooting script. On a few pages there are pencil annotations in a mixture of German and English. We have not been able to compare handwriting to determine whether it might be that of Rainer or Freund. Edges rumpled, staining, especially to front wrapper, few edge nicks; apart from soil to first three or four pages, internally clean. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Ilustrados com retratos de Oliveira Salazar nas capas do 1º e 6º volume e em extratexto no 4º volume. Primeira edição. Conjunto constituído por primeiras edições de todos os volumes, uma circunstância rara que muito valoriza esta obra fundamental do pensamento político do Século XX. Uma das mais importantes fontes para o estudo do Estado Novo e do pensamento e acção e Oliveira Salazar que aqui são expostos com clareza e frontalidade. O historiador António José Saraiva (que foi opositor do regime, exilado político e militante comunista) refere que quem lê os 'Discursos e Notas' de Salazar ?fica subjugado pela limpidez e concisão do estilo, a mais perfeita e cativante prosa doutrinária que existe em língua portuguesa, atravessada por um ritmo afectivo poderoso? Segundo este autor da 'História da Literatura Portuguesa' (obra conjunta com Óscar Lopes) a prosa de Salazar merece um lugar de relevo na História da Literatura Portuguesa e só considerações políticas a arredaram do lugar que lhe compete.

        As director of part of the Tuskegee Institute, George Washington Carver writes a heartfelt letter to his first polio patient, a former student at Tuskegee

      Tuskegee, Alabama, August 1, 1935. 8.5" x 11". "Typed Letter Signed "G. W. Carver", 1 page, 8.5" x 11". Tuskegee Institute, Alabama, August 1, 1935. Addressed to Floyd Anderson with original postmarked envelope. Lightly toned with folds from mailing. Fine condition. Anderson was Carver's first patient at the Tuskegee Institute. A year earlier, on August 28, 1934, Carver had written to Floyd, in part, "Some time dear, I wish you write me a brief story of your case, and how the treatment has benefitted you. Dear, you are my first patient and it would be such a treasure to have it from you ..." This letter further reveals the deep bond between the patient and Carver when he writes, in part, "I had begun to grow a bit uneasy as to just how you were getting on ... I am not surprised that you are developing into a radio expert, and that they are keeping you busy with repairs. This will give you something to do, bring in a little necessary cash, which, strange to say, most boys need, and what is more important still fit you for life's great problems by giving you something tangible to do at all times ... you are nonetheless my boy, even though I do not get to see you often.""

        Murder in the Cathedral

      London: Faber and Faber, 1935. 8vo. 87pp. Original purple cloth; later slipcase. A pre-publication presentation copy, inscribed by Eliot on the title: "Inscribed for Dr. John Carroll Perkins by the author T. S. Eliot 11.vi.1935" (publication of its 3000 copies was two days later on June 13th). Rev. Perkins was minister of King's Chapel, First Unitarian Church of Boston, the oldest church in the USA, from 1926 to 1933, and was well known in Eliot's society. Upon his death, Eliot wrote in his condolence letter to Perkins' wife Edith that he could express "what you know already, and what must have been said already by many friends: what a good and beautiful person Uncle John [Perkins] was, and how much loved he was. Like every one else who knew him, I shall continue to cherish every memory of his very Christian soul, of essential integrity and innocence... His own patience and humility made one rather ashamed, and his readiness to see people at their best" (The Letters, Vol 6). Mrs. Perkins was Eliot's hostess in Chipping Camden each summer from 1934 to 1939, and the Perkins' were instrumental in raising Emily Hale -- T.S. Eliot's early infatuation -- after her mother's illness. Gallup A29b. Lack dust jacket, front hinge cracked, some toning to boards, pencilings in text presumably by Perkins.

Roberts form a documentary record of Owens v. Butler [297 U.S. 1 (1936)] the case that brought about the demise of the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1933. Part of Roosevelt's New Deal, this was a Federal law that aimed to raise the value of crops by paying farmers and ranchers to reduce production. The money for these subsidies was generated through an exclusive tax on companies that processed farm products. This led to a series of seven suits by processors, who believed they were being taxed unfairly. The most important of these was Owens v. Butler. As framed by the plaintiff's lawyers, it asserted the right of a taxpayer to question the validity of a Federal tax. The Court decided in favor of Owens, ruling that the taxes instituted under the 1933 Agricultural Adjustment Act were unconstitutional under the Tenth Amendment. As argued by Justice Roberts, the tax was not valid because it was established in conjunction with coercive contracts with proceeds earmarked for the benefit of farmers complying with the prescribed conditions. The court also held that the basic premise of the act, paying a farmer to produce less to manipulate prices, went beyond the powers of the national government. The issues raised by Owens v. Butler were addressed by the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1938, which continue. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Infant Ape and Human Child; instincts, emotions, play, habits.

      OFFERING: An extraordinary specimen of the first edition with a pre-publication presentation for Dr. Arnold Gesell and preserved additions mounted on blank pages. IMPORTANCE: The work is the first comprehensive report on Kohts' findings and is a primatology classic, esteemed for its extraordinary suite of photographs; "these particular pictures are little short of classic and would have delighted Darwin." [Dr. Arnold Gesell] Based on her groundbreaking observations comparing the behavior of Roody, her son with Joni, a home-raised young chimpanzee, Kohts demonstrated that there are profound differences in cognitive development for language and gesture between human and chimpanzee. Her testing paralleled the work of Wolfgang Köhler, as "they independently devised early cognitive testing methodologies." [Frans B.M. de Waal] EDITION NOTE: The first edition, Russian, except title on cover and title page in Russian and English, and with a 72 pages summary in English, including detailed contents and plate descriptions. RARITY: Rare. A worldwide institution search outside of Russia finds 17 holdings, including the American Museum of Natural History, the New York Public Library, Cornell, Dartmouth, Duke, Harvard, Yale, and the Royal College of Surgeons, University of Edinburgh. NADEZHDA NIKOLAEVNA LADYGINA-KOHTS: [1889-1963]: Pioneer cognitive psychologist, Director of the Zoological Laboratory, Darwin Museum, Moscow, Lecturer in Comparative Psychology, State University, Moscow. Kohts was the first researcher to home raise a young chimpanzee (1913-16). Her early advocacy for advanced cognition capabilities for primates has proven correct and she was the first to demonstrate color vision in chimpanzees. She maintained an extensive correspondence with Robert Yerkes from 1924 and he visited her in Moscow in 1929. Yerkes encouraged her to publish and I think it highly probable that he made the long distance introductions, speaking to Gesell about Kohts, and, in turn, speaking to Kohts about Gesell, encouraging her to contact him. (Gesell consulted with Yerkes on his comparative development table for the Rhesus macaque and Homo sapiens. [Miles, pp. 69-70] And the Yerkes-Gesell correspondence and association through the Institute of Human Relations is well documented.) ARNOLD GESELL [1880-1961]: The preeminent American child psychologist of his day, he was the founder of what is now the Yale Child Study Center and initiated the use of cinematography in child development studies in 1924, publishing "The Mental Growth of the Pre-School Child" in 1925. He would go on to use film and photography media to pursue many lines of comparative research, to document developmental milestones for children from infancy to adolescence. His magnum opus, "An Atlas of Infant Behavior" with 3,200 'action photographs' was published in 1934. SIX ADDITIONS: some mounted, those by Kohts in purple ink (her favorite color). 1) Presentation: made in English and written with strong flourishes, dated July 12, 1935, about one month before publication. 2) Signed Letter: A signed, typed letter in English from Kohts to Gesell, her signature with an extended upper stem flourish, 13 lines, December 14, 1935 date, stamped heading-Zoopsycologiches Laboratorium Moscow, requesting his views on her research; "Herewith I am forwarding to you by parcel post the product of many years of my labor, the book." ... "I am eagerly looking forward to your highly valuable comment, especially in respect of that part which deals with child psychology." 3) Mailing Envelope: with typed addresses, Gesell's delivery address at the Institute of Psychology, Yale and the return address for the State Darwin Museum, Moscow, done in Russian and English. 4) Book Review: Dr. Gesell's personal offprint copy of his 1937 review of Kohts' book in the "Journal of Genetic Psychology", no. 50, pp. 465-67; "Out of Russia comes a striking volume with an arresting title." Gesell notes Kohts' wealth of evidence for differences in communication skills and intellectual development between chimpanzees and humans; "The manifestation of emotion in pantomime is incomparably more prominent in the chimpanzee", while Kohts' son, Roody at age 1 is, "already engaged in spontaneous word building" (something the chimpanzee, Joni never demonstrated). Gesell notes also that Kohts was able to determine Joni was independently capable of 25 distinguishable sounds and that the reaction of the (young) chimpanzee and her (baby) son to seeing for the first time their mirror image was strikingly alike. 5) Clipping: of The New Yorker cartoon by Robert J. Day, showing researchers looking at infant chimpanzees and humans, the caption ending, "The Harvard entrance examinations will tell the story." In the 1930s, Day became "a master of the panoramic full-page gag in the New Yorker". [Yagoda] 6) Notations: Cartoon: "from New Yorker" added by Gesell / Contents: prologue crossed-out by Kohts / English Summary: Gesell added in pencil in margins, 5 comments and brackets and asterisks.

        [Promotional Prospectus]: Brassband Bixby

      New York: Press Alliance. [Circa 1935]. Folio. Measuring 17" x 22". Single sheet folded once to form four pages. Very good with creases from being folded, a scrape on the back cover and general wear. A large prospectus created to drum up interest in a new comic strip by Bob Dunn called Brassband Bixby. Dunn was a cartoonist and gag writer best known for his work on They'll Do It Every Time and Little Iodine, and winner of two National Cartoonists Society awards. This piece contains a dozen sample dailies along with Bixby himself praising the merits of the strip and asking interested editors to return the attached postcard to find out more. The strip appears to have followed the now missing postcard into oblivion with no mention of the character or strip anywhere online or in OCLC. Possibly a unique survivor. .
