        MAD LOVE (1935)

      MGM 1935 - Vintage original 8 x 10" (20 x 25 cm.) single weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, USA. Peter Lorre, Frances Drake, Colin Clive, Ted Healy, Sara Haden, Keye Luke, Cora Sue Collins, dir: Karl Freund; MGM. This is likely the most bizarre film MGM made during the 1930s. Horror films were the rage and thus the great studio wanted an entry into the genre. Peter Lorre played one of his strangest roles, and in this still as Doctor Gogol he is at his creepiest frightening Frances Drake (as Yvonne Orlac) into submission. Lorre is an insane surgeon with an obsession with an actress (Frances Drake as Yvonne Orlac) who does an act in which she is burned at the stake. When her husband (Colin Clive as Stephen Orlac), a pianist, loses use of his hands in a train accident, the mad doctor transplants a pair of hands from a murderous knife thrower onto him. Strange murders are pinned on Orlac as Dr. Gogol makes a play for Yvonne. Great expressionist cinema art from director Freund (best known for his superb cinematography with its routes in German expressionism), and camera work by Gregg Toland. The film was mercilessly censored and cut because of the post-Code taboos that it attempted to break. Some countries would not even show it. The truncated version we have today is still effective, however. Ink stamp on verso for a showing at the New York City Roxy Theatre. Very minor handling. FI

      Bloomsbury The Nonesuch Press 1935 - LIMITED EDITION and FIRST NONESUCH PRESS PRINTING one of only 675 numbered copies. This copy with the RARE PUBLISHER'S PROSPECTUS included. Illustrated with 9 large wood-engravings by V. Le Campion, one colour plate, and 9 double-page maps by T. Poulton. Printed in Nonesuch Plantin with Perpetua and Felicity italic types. Folio, publisher’s original half blue vellum over blue cloth, the spine lettered and elaborately decorated in gilt designs which follow to the turnovers , t.e.g. xxvi, 778 pp. A fine copy, clean and fresh and solid, the binding in beautiful condition with just a hint of the mellowing normally affecting the blue vellum used in binding this title, and without any of the bowing typical to the book. Internally very fresh and clean, a few spots to the end-papers only, the rare prospectus handsome and quite well preserved, with just a little foxing to the cover leaf. LIMITED EDITION, AND ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL MODERN PRINTINGS of the Greek historian. This is very pleasing copy: the gilt is brilliant, the boards are not bowed as is usual, and the volume is clean throughout. In all likelihood this particular copy has never been read. Herodotus, the Greek historian was often called the "father of history" due to his systematic collection of sources and his attempt at intellectual rigor. His merits were ".the diligence with which he collected his materials, the candour and impartiality with which he has placed his facts before the reader, the absence of party bias and undue national vanity, and the breadth of his conception of the historian’s office." His work represents the first significant Greek writing and covers the struggle between Asia and Europe, ending in the Persian invasion of Greece (490 to 479 BC). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mutiny on the Bounty Glass Cinema Advertising Slide.

      New York: National Studios, no date but, 1935. Glass slide, 83 x 100 mm., coloured transfer; in the original card mount. A fantastic reminder that while scholars and historians have argued for centuries about the true motives of the Bounty mutiny, that no such doubts troubled the producers at MGM when they released their seminal film starring Charles Laughton and Clark Gable in 1935.These coloured glass slides are fragile and thus rare survivals. They were used in cinemas as advertising slides for coming attractions, and this particular one, with its prominent positioning of the Tahitian woman with just a bare silhouette of the boat in the background, is a reminder of precisely just how "exotic" the Pacific setting was thought to be. The tagline for the movie posters was just as explicit: "A Thousand Hours of Hell For One Moment of Love!"Although it is not possible to be certain, the figure may be based on the Hawaiian-born actor Mamo Clark, who played Gable's love-interest in the film. Very good.

        Blandings Castle

      Garden City: Doubleday, Doran & Co, 1935. 312 pages with deckle fore edge. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/2") bound in original publisher's green cloth with dark green lettering to spine and pictorial emblem to front cover corner in pictorial jacket. ((Jasen: 53a; McIlvaine: pages 68-69) First American edition.Blandings Castle and Elsewhere is a collection of short stories by P. G. Wodehouse. It was first published in the United Kingdom on 12 April 1935 by Herbert Jenkins, London, and, as Blandings Castle, in the United States on 20 September 1935 by Doubleday Doran, New York. All the stories had previously appeared in Strand Magazine (UK) and all except the last in various US magazines. The first six stories all take place at the book's namesake Blandings Castle; they are set some time between the events of Leave it to Psmith (1923) and those of Summer Lightning (1929). The seventh concerns Bobbie Wickham, an acquaintance and sometime fiancee of Bertie Wooster, and the last five are narrated by Mr Mulliner. The master of Blandings is, nominally at least, Lord Emsworth. Clarence, the ninth Earl, is an amiably absent-minded old chap, who is charming because of his slow, relaxed lifestyle and the simple obsessions that make him oblivious to the absurd melodrama of his family, namely his home, gardens, pumpkins, and his champion pig, Empress of Blandings. He is never happier than when pottering about the grounds on a fine sunny day. Lord Emsworth's ten sisters (all of whom look like the "daughter of a hundred earls", except for Hermione, who looks like a cook), his brother Galahad ("Gally"), his daughter Mildred, his sons Freddie and George, and his numerous nieces, nephews, and in-laws inhabit the castle from time to time. For the Threepwood family, and their friends, the castle is forever available for indefinite residence, and is occasionally used as a temporary prison—known as "Devil's Island" or "The Bastille"—for love-struck young men and ladies to calm down. Blandings Castle, lying in the picturesque Vale of Blandings, Shropshire, England, is two miles from the town of Market Blandings, home to at least nine pubs, most notably the Emsworth Arms. The castle is a noble pile, of Early Tudor building ("its history is recorded in England's history books and Viollet-le-Duc has written of its architecture", according to Something Fresh). One of England's largest stately homes, it dominates the surrounding country, standing on a knoll of rising ground at the southern end of the celebrated Vale of Blandings; the Severn gleams in the distance. From its noble battlements, the Wrekin can be seen. The house has numerous guest rooms, many of which haven't been used since Queen Elizabeth roamed the country. Of those still in use, the Garden Room is the finest, usually given to the most prestigious guest; it has a balcony outside its French windows, which can be easily accessed via a handy drainpipe. The main library has a smaller library leading off it, and windows overlooking some flowerbeds; it is here that Lord Emsworth is often to be found on wet days, his nose deep in an improving tome of country lore, his favorite being Whiffle on The Care of the Pig.Condition:Small split at spine head, corners lightly rubbed. Jacket spine ends lightly chipped, some closed edge tears, closed tear at front head hinge with a crease, price clipped else a better than very good copy in a very good jacket.

And it provoked a wide and varied response among contemporary reviewers in America. . . . [but] enjoyed much greater success in Europe, especially France.

        Can quantum-mechanical description of physical reality be considered complete?

      Lancaster, PA & New York: American Physical Society, 1935. A very fine copy, in the original wrappers, of Bohr's response to the famous 'EPR paradox,' which he resolved by introducing the notion of 'quantum entanglement.' Bohr's paper also marks the conclusion of the Bohr-Einstein debate on the foundations of quantum mechanics that had begun at the Solvay Conference in 1927. "In the May 15, 1935 issue of Physical Review Albert Einstein co-authored a paper with his two postdoctoral research associates at the Institute for Advanced Study, Boris Podolsky and Nathan Rosen. The article was entitled 'Can Quantum Mechanical Description of Physical Reality Be Considered Complete?'. Generally referred to as 'EPR', this paper quickly became a centerpiece in the debate over the interpretation of the quantum theory, a debate that continues today" (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). The thought experiment proposed by Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen involves two systems that interact with each other and are then separated so that they presumably interact no longer. Then, the position of one of the systems is measured, and due to the known relationship between the measured value of the first particle and the value of the second particle, the observer is aware of the position of the second particle. A measurement is then made of the momentum of the second particle. This seems to violate the uncertainty principle, since both the position and momentum of a the second particle would be known with certainty. "By the time of the EPR paper many of the early interpretive battles over the quantum theory had been settled, at least to the satisfaction of working physicists. Bohr had emerged as the "philosopher" of the new theory and the community of quantum theorists, busy with the development and extension of the theory, were content to follow Bohr's leadership when it came to explaining and defending its conceptual underpinnings. Thus in 1935 the burden fell to Bohr to explain what was wrong with the EPR "paradox". The major article that he wrote in discharging this burden [the present paper] became the canon for how to respond to EPR" (ibid.). "When the EPR paper reached Niels Bohr in Copenhagen, he realized that he had once again been cast in the role, which he played so well at the Solvay Conferences, of defending quantum mechanics from yet another Einstein assault. "This onslaught came down on us as a bolt from the blue," a colleague [Leon Rosenfeld] of Bohr's reported. "Its effect on Bohr was remarkable ... Everything else was abandoned. We had to clear up such a misunderstanding at once." Even with such intensity it took Bohr more than six weeks of fretting, writing, revising, dictating, and talking aloud before he finally sent off his response to EPR. "It was longer than the original paper. In it Bohr backed away somewhat from what had been an aspect of the uncertainty principle: that the mechanical disturbance caused by the act of observation was a cause of the uncertainty. He admitted that in Einstein's thought experiment, "there is no question of a mechanical disturbance of the system under investigation." "However, using his concept of complementarity, Bohr added a significant caveat. He pointed out that the two particles were part of one whole phenomenon. Because they have interacted, the two particles are therefore 'entangled.' They are part of one whole phenomenon or one whole system that has one wave function. "Einstein continued to insist, however, that he had pinpointed an important example of the incompleteness of quantum mechanics by showing how it violated the principle of separability, which holds that two systems that are spatially separated have an independent existence. It likewise violated the related principle of locality, which says that an action on one of those systems cannot immediately affect the other. As an adherent of field theory, which defines reality using a spacetime continuum, Einstein believed that separability was a fundamental feature of nature. And as a defender of his own theory of relativity, which rid Newton's cosmos of spooky action at a distance and decreed instead that such actions obey the speed limit of light, he believed in locality as well" (Isaacson, pp. 451-3). "The 1935 papers mark the end of the Bohr-Einstein dialog insofar as it appeared in the scientific literature... It is most fitting to let Einstein have the last word: "Of the 'orthodox' quantum theoreticians whose position I know, Niels Bohr's seems to me to come nearest to doing justice to the [EPR] problem"" (Pais, p. 431). Today, it is widely accepted that non-locality is indeed a feature of the quantum world. The notion of quantum entanglement forms the basis of several cutting-edge technologies. In quantum cryptography, entangled particles are used to transmit signals that cannot be intercepted by an eavesdropper without leaving a trace. The first viable quantum cryptography systems are already being used by several banks. And the burgeoning field of quantum computation uses entangled quantum states to perform computational calculations in parallel, so that some types of calculations can be done much more quickly than could ever be possible using classical computers. W. Isaacson, Einstein: his life and universe, 2007; A. Pais, Niels Bohr's times, 1991. Pp. 696-702 in Physical Review, Vol. 48, No. 8, October 15, 1935.

        Alain Campbell White Letters to Frederick Gamage

      Summerville, Littchfield and New York: Self Written, 1935-1944. Alain Campbell White letters to Frederick Gamage cover the years from April 4, 1935 to September 15, 1944. For this ten year period there are 364 dated letters and 28 incomplete letters (lacking front date page). The letters are an ongoing correspondence between White and Gamage which covers all aspects of problem chess. The letters show a development of mentor (White), encouraging ad occasionally prodding his protégé (Gamage) in developing skills in problem construction. As the letters progress over this ten year period, the reader can observe the relationship develop between the two men, from a formal intercourse to a more comradely banter. White offered suggestions, comments and themes for problems. White’s vast and profound technical knowledge, his artistic appreciation, his ability in expressing himself, and his enthusiastic and friendly encouragement were the great inspiration of many problems Gamage constructed, and he was lucky enough to be among his host of correspondents. Some of the letters were multiple pages hand typed, but often hand written, some unsigned or just initialed, usually with the location White was residing and the date written. Included with the letters are the limited edition work by Alain White on Gamage Frederick Gamage: An Artist in Chess Problems and Mike Prcic’s book Frederick Gamage. The letters in the latter work have been reproduced from the original letters offered now.Newman Guttman was one of a few problemists to visit Frederick Gamage. After the passing of Gamage, the letters from Alain White along with Gamage’s other chess papers were given to Guttman. He, in turn, gave these papers to Edgar Holladay. Holladay came into the possession of what problemists would consider as "treasures," one-of-a-kind items from famous and well-known problemists. Robert Moore and Holladay were good friends and these were passed to him by Holladay’s wife, Rita.Serious buyers may inquire about more information regarding this collection.Condition:The letters have folds for postage, some occasional stains, and occasional edge wear else a very good collection. They are housed in individual archival holders held in a multiple three ring binders.

      Grasset. First edition, review copy. Signed autograph of Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz to Robert Garric. Catholic reformist, he was the   founder of "social Teams" in 1920, which aimed to establish a social elite and bring the good word about the brotherhood born of the trenches to the workers, in the tradition of patronage. Simone de Beauvoir, then student of Robert Garric in philosophy at Sainte-Marie Institute of Neuilly, remembers him   in his "Memoirs of a Tidy Wench"   "Garric appeared; I forgot everything else and myself; the authority of his voice subdued me. In twenty years we he explained, he had discovered in the trenches the joys of camaraderie that removed social barriers. [...] To deny all limits and all separations, get out of my class, out of my skin: this slogan electrified me. [...] Must serve my life! Must serve all my life! " Back passed, small light spots on the boards, reading a few marks in pencil by the dedicatee in margins of some leaves. Grasset Paris 1935 12x19cm broché

        [Faux-Pas] Digressions. Jeu complet d'épreuves abondamment corrigées par l'auteur.

      First new version of the autograph manuscript of 17 pages, written in 1935. Manuscript writing very dense, full excluding the last 13 lines of printed text, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Complete typescript with a few variations from the manuscript and a copy of the first edition published in 1947 and finally published in 1950 is attached. In 1935, Blanchot has been working for 3 years on Thomas the Obscure (he completed in 1940) when interrupts his writing "that would not stop" to write the last word, a short story he describes as "an attempt to bypass another book underway to overcome the interminable and get a more linear narrative, yet painfully complex, a silent decision ... ". In 1983, Blanchot, referring to the motivations of this "innocent text where murderers omens of future time resounded," can not say "how it is written and how unknown requirement, it has the answer." "It was not a text for publication," he says in the afterword of hindsight. The last word will indeed published 12 years later in 550 copies in the collection golden age (although it went bankrupt at the same time, the book will be on sale in 1950) . So the first story is meant at once the last word and the refusal of its unveiling. "Surely begin to write immediately to achieve at the end (...), this means at least hope not to make a career and finding the shortest path to finish early." In this "Apocalypse" Blanchot leads his own novel being written: Thomas, the hero, and is ironically called the new power otherwise without express "what happened to him [that] saying nothing happened ". But if, starting with the last word, Blanchot marks the end of writing, it is an end that remains unpublished. And when the book is finally published, it will be more of a work already substantial: Thomas the Obscure, Amminadab, Faux pas, the Most High, Death Sentence and The Share of fire. Therefore, the last word is not "waiver be Master and Judge," but a written waiver of this "itself in vain." It can no longer be "the unusual resolution to deprive [Language] to support (...) that is to say more than language" but, as part of the work, there is a "word to say and do not say. ". A word rewritten by the writer he became transformed by writing and by war. This is the inaugural version, first draft of thirty young Blanchot, we present here and C. Bident his biographer, thought "probably never know." Narrative foundation, basic writing, many scholars have studied the last man, "painfully complicated" as even the author, but who calls a few "prophetic" pages a reflection on language (and, through him, totalitarianism) marking the second part of the century. Now we present the manuscript written in 1935 and until then unknown, differs considerably from the following two versions of 1947 and 1983. Written in the third person (the later will they, homodiégétiques) the story is much longer. It contains descriptions and including many deleted scenes that will be removed in the published versions: "The sun bathed [plaza] a fiery light of huge mirrors, placed at the four corners, be kicked around in a maze of colors . "" A cloud was soon raised to the ceiling, black cloud crossed by small glowing patches. "" I am worried, he said. I was wrong to leave earlier this house when I get home, surrounded by torches are extinguished one by one. What will I find now? How to live without I guideline? Can you tell me anything? "" Some children, head blackened coal, removed the sand in which they were buried, and trying to achieve with small white stones they drew from their pocket, they reviled in their incomprehensible language. "" Taking advantage of the lull, dogs out of their hole, as if they had been secretly excited by a master, they rushed to the sleeper by pulling on their links. They tried to right, left, then discovering it under the covers, they are slipped badly, small first, then the big dog, like a vicious bunch of kids. "" The intoxication of being together having lost younger pushed them into their own home as if she had ceased to be theirs, and they threw screams waking intruders from their homes. "But this manuscript provides the exegete especially demonstrative few passages that provide clarification on the meaning of the story:" Until is not an indifferent manner to the past and the future. If it is intended to extend a veil over what approach, if a link between, by mutual repulsion, separate time moments it appears from something, something else is not shown, however, that such limit. "" They whom nothing was forbidden to speak and who knew, behaved as if their knowledge had been to break with the language. "" The disciple on this admission, redoubled adoration, give themselves shots that change them into what they can be. At first common deception, they ran, one to an animal world, the other to a riveted himself a slave. "" They wanted to laugh again nonsense, is torturing a lie, but, having no other way to stand as the apotheosis, they lost sight of their mutual desire for death and blissfully enjoyed the rest. "A key reading these valuable addition changes that reflect real shifts of the author. If the most important is, of course, the choice of the first person in later versions, some lexical variations are also very significant. Thus: "I offer the spectacle of my vices" in the manuscript and typescript 1935 becomes: "I offer the spectacle of my mistakes" in the published version of the same in 1947. "This is an extract from the speech the third city "becomes" This is an excerpt of the speech on the third on the third State "; "A noise (...) was one stroke the whole town" becomes "was one stroke all the people" and "... on a deck of onomatopoeia" becomes "... a gateway ranting." Finally, it is a lyrical Blanchot that reveals this "abrupt call of language": "She had her hair hanging these broad wings velvet are a promise of transformation." "... When the sun casting its light shining against the mirrors everywhere, stopped above the esplanade and heard this loud voice, private mysteriously vowels and consonants, which announces the sharing of spaces" "Shouts of the crowd came and brought calls for an immense distress. "" He ran on the book and bit his teeth, as if he had made insensitive despite the bitterness of those old pages. ". In hindsight Blanchot hesitate to comment, however, that this text provides for the third time and he took care to revise again, 50 years after its first release. However, it brings some bits of explanations that reveal the importance of this little story in the life and work of one of the most mysterious writers of the twentieth century: "The last word has to tell main line, as having instead, the total wreck, the narrative itself can not therefore be preserved, and impossible or absurd, unless he should claim prophetic, heralding a future in the past already there or saying there always when there is nothing: either there wearing nothing and prevent the annihilation that it can not escape its long-term process which is rehashing and eternity.

Not in the Grove Music Online works list. "Firmly rooted in the French 19th-century tradition, Büsser's symphonic and choral writing is indebted to Gounod and Saint-Saëns. He is best known, however, for his dramatic works, which betray Wagner's impact in both their form and their use of the orchestra. The influence of Debussy, whose advice Büsser sought over the opera that became his most successful, Colomba (c1902-10), is also evident in certain harmonic procedures and in an acute sensitivity to orchestral colour. The ballets, such as the light-hearted La ronde des saisons (1905) with its amusing descriptive touches, provide further evidence of his keen dramatic sense." Barbara L. Kelly in Grove Music Online.
