        THE CASE OF THE CARETAKER'S CAT.

      William Morrow and Company, 1935., New York - First edition. Fine, tight, bright copy in a price-clipped dust jacket with a closed tear to head and foot of spine and lightly rubbed along front flap fold, Peter Laxter guaranteed his faithful caretaker a job and a place to live for life, but Laxters heirs say the deal doesn't include the caretakers cat. When Perry Mason takes the case, he finds much more at stake than an old mans cat.a million dollars to be exact. As he investigates, he finds a web of greed and treachery among the heirs. But which one actually pulled off the almost perfect crime? [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        USSR Architecture [and] Construction of Moscow].

      Moskva - 1938 1935 - USSR Architecture (Organ Soyuza sovetskikh arkhitektorov, Moskva, 1936-37): 21 issues (1936: issues No3 - 12; 1937: issues No1 - 11), complete with all ll., original wrappers; occasional spotting and soiling, some occasional light mold, heavier to last 15 ll. of issue 9 for 1937, margins and spines of wrappers slightly chipped. Construction of Moscow (Mossovet, Moskva, 1935-38): No6 and 17-18 for 1935; No4-8, 10-12 and 22 for 1936; No6, 12, 22 for 1937 and No16 for 1938, most issues with plates, including some folding, original wrappers; some light marginal waterstaining in several issues, light soiling. A collection of issues of the two famous Soviet architectural periodicals that together provide an insight into the unique marriage of the architectural aspirations and ideology of the Stalin's epoch. The "USSR architecture" was an illustrated monthly periodical that was published from 1933 until 1992 with some interruptions. It included overviews of the domestic architecture, building projects as well as articles on European and American architecture. The tone of reviews obeys a strict ideological framework. Articles about projects by Soviet architects are impregnated with pompous praise, whereas many of those reviewing architecture abroad overuse such notions as "battle", "controversy of capitalism" and "crises". One of the most interesting projects that is featured in three issues offered here (No7 for the year 1936, No 5 for 1937 and No11 for 1937) is the famous USSR pavilion at the International Exposition dedicated to Art and Technology in Modern Life held in Paris in 1937. Designed by the B.M. Iofan the building was lined with Samarkand marble. The entrance to the pavilion was decorated with bas-reliefs by sculptor I.M. Chaikoff featuring the coats of arms of the USSR and 11 Union republics. The most notable part of the pavilion was the 24-meter sculptural group "A Worker and a Collective Farm Girl", made of stainless steel after a design by Vera Mukhina, which symbolised the achievements of the socialist industrialisation. The other periodical "The Construction of Moscow" was founded in 1923 and often featured stellar avant-garde designs by Gustav Klutsis, Vasilii Elkin, and El Lissitzky. It ran through the 1930s, but progressively became less and less modernist in terms of both form and content as time went on. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Extensive autograph on typed letter by V. Meyerhold

      Borovikha 1935 - Borovikha, the 5th of December of 1935. 6 pp. 30?21 ?m. This letter is Meyerhold's response to memo sent to him by accountant-general of Meyerhold Theatre about employees getting personal salaries. This letter is addressed to Vladimir Glinsky (1888-1938), assistant director for the Theatre. The handwritten part is dedicated to personal salaries of workers and actors, first of all, Zinaida Raich, Igor' Iliinsky, Mikhail Tsarev, S. Khmel'nitsky et al. Vsevolod Meyerhold (1874-1940) was a Russian theatrical producer, director, and actor whose provocative experiments in nonrealistic theatre made him one of the productive forces in modern theatre. Meyerhold founded his own theatre in 1920, which was known from 1923 as the Meyerhold Theatre until 1938. He inspired revolutionary artists and filmmakers such as Sergei Eisenstein, who studied with him. In the early 1930s, when Joseph Stalin repressed all avant-garde art and experimentation, his works were proclaimed antagonistic and alien to the Soviet people. Before his death he was tortured, and executed by the state (cleared of all charges in 1955). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Dante's Inferno (Original screenplay for the 1935 film)

      Fox Film Corporation 1935 - Final Script for the 1935 film, "Dante's Inferno," directed by Harry Lachman, written for the screen by Philip Klein and Robert M. Yost, and starring Spencer Tracy and Claire Trevor. Carnival barker Spencer Tracy befriends an elderly concessionaire and turns the old man's picturesque but stodgy display depicting Dante's Inferno into a major attraction, complete with full orchestra and scantily clad "devil girls." He eventually buys up the rest of the carnival, using cold-blooded tactics that result in the suicide of a fellow concessionaire, and within five years is a millionaire tycoon of the entertainment industry. In an important sequence, for nearly ten minutes, the movie audience is treated to a lavish depiction of hell wherein Tracy is warned of the dangers of hell, magnificently photographed by cinematographer Rudolph Mate. Although the Fox Film Corporation produced the film, it was distributed after Fox's merger with Twentieth Century, which began trading on May 31, 1935. Green titled wrappers, with a holograph pencil notation of project No. 1107, dated 11/26/34, and with credits in manual type for Klein and Yost. Title page is integral first page of text. 131 leaves, mimeograph, with several change pages, all dated 11/28/34. Laid in are 3 pages of additional scenes constituting the film's finale, titled "Finish." Pages and wrapper Very Good plus, with some flaking to the yapped edges of the wrapper, bound with three gold brads. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Liberty Landing. An outline of a plan for the unification of transportation facilities for the Port of New York.

      None. 1935 - I recently uncovered an interesting, unpublished and probably not-acceptable engineering report to extend the ports capacity in the Hudson River at New York City--the ports of the area being famously over-busy for a long period of time, especially right before World War II. Charles Palliser and Frederick W. Capon presented a proposal in 1935 for a unification of the port and airport facilities to take care of the overcrowding and overworked problem. (Mimeographed?) 1935. 13x8.5", cover sheet; 1 sheet with photograph of drawing, 4 leaves of text. Staple bound at top. Good condition. Provenance: from the Library of Congress, via the Copyright Office. +++What they came up with was Liberty Landing, a mile-long and half-mile-wide facility that nearly bumped into the Statue of Liberty (and hence its name). The plan called for backfilling the “flats” that were just south of Jersey City, as “the natural formation of these were very favorable”, which meant that the airport-port combo would extend all the way into the harbor to the edge of the channel, which would put it further out than the Statue of Liberty, which would also be just hundreds of feet away from the end of the north runway. Also attached to the backfill and new land would be a one-mile-long floating dock. Oh my! The floating island would also have vehicular tunnels that connected it to Staten Island and the Battery. There were facilities for seaplanes, airplanes, railroads, dirigibles, and trucks, plus a military installation, a custom’s house and the US Mail Service, so that all commerce would converge at this one point, which sounds interesting (for about 20 seconds). +++This is a good candidate for the “Better Left Undone” award for 1935. As I look at the photograph of the aerial view of the plan it strikes me that if the designers increased the surface area by only 125% or so they could’ve connected the new facility with Governor’s Island AND Brooklyn, building a land bridge from Jersey City to Coney Island—a superbly bad idea to cap an already strongly bad idea. The report is called, simply, Liberty Landing, and published by the architect in Jackson Heights, NYC, 16 September 1935. This is also the U.S. Copyright Deposit copy (accepted 10 October 1935), which is where the history of this project ends. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        [Two Leaves of Revised Typescript for:] "THE MILLIONAIRESS."

      [Np, nd]. Two leaves, quarto, on blue-green stock. With manuscript additions in red and black ink. Folded at one time for mailing, otherwise very good. Two leaves of an unidentified draft of "The Millionairess," annotated with revisions by Shaw in his distinctive hand. The leaves are denoted as "Act 1. Page 138," and "Act II, Page 162" (the former typed, the latter in Shaw's hand). The typed portions are themselves noted as for substitution in an earlier draft and are identified as such in Shaw's hand on one leaf and in typescript on another. Both leaves bear his manuscript direction to substitute a line of dialogue for Epifania in place of lines 3, 4, 5, & 6 on page 156. The play was not published in book form until 1935 (in Trebitsch's German translation) and 1936, in English, with two other plays, by Constable. The 1938 publication in volume 33 of the Collected Edition was revised by Shaw, and he adapted it for broadcast by the BBC in 1942.

        Gods and Mortals in Love

      1935. first edition. With Nine Colored Plates by Edmund DulacDULAC, Edmund, illustrator. WILLIAMSON, Hugh Ross. Gods and Mortals in Love. London: Country Life Limited, [1935]. First edition. Large quarto (11 x 8 5/8 inches; 279 x 218 mm.). 83, [1, blank] pp. Nine full-page color plates.Publisher's cream tweed cloth flecked with royal blue. Front cover and spine decoratively lettered in blue. A near fine copy.The plates depict various relationships between mythical deities and humans, most of which end tragically?The plates:1. Aphrodite and Adonis2. Selene and Edymion3. Pluto and Persephone4. Psyche and Cerberus5. Pan and Syrinx6. Orpheus and Eurydice7. Jason and Medea8. Herakles and Deianeira9. Perseus and Andromeda"The illustrations in this book have already appeared as front pages in the American weekly.A book with coloured pictures and an illustrated book are not quite the same thing.One may say that each has its own function and its own appeal.This is presented as a book with coloured pictures." (Edmund Dulac, 1935 on verso of title-page)."?Meanwhile work for American Weekly continued with the publication in February 1931 of Perseus and Andromeda, the first cover for what was to be Dulac's largest series for the magazine; eleven illustrations of tales from Ovid under the title of Love Stories the Ancients Believed In. The pictures portrayed the lovers themselves at the most dramatic moment in the story, but, with the exceptions of the killing of Nessus in Hercules and Dejanira, and the exciting figure of Perseus sweeping down to kill the beast attacking Andromeda, they seemed a departure from Dulac's high standards. The fault lay in his attempt to portray his characters, Pan and Syrinx, Circe and Ulysses, and Pluto and Persephone, as eternal symbols in the manner of Tanglewood Tales, but the larger size of the watercolors meant that his remote, impersonal approach would not work as effectively as in the book, so that the figures appeared posed, and the histrionic gestures and staring eyes, meant to show deep emotion, had no interest. Nevertheless, the illustrations were popular enough to be reprinted in Good Housekeeping with an accompanying text by Hugh Ross Williamson, and, in 1935, were compiled in book form under the title Gods and Mortals in Love. Dulac designed a special cover with a silver Cupid and lettering in the style of an ancient Greek inscription." (White, pp. 144-148).Hughey, 84; White, 39.

Wikipedia: Melchior Lechter (geb. 2. Oktober 1865 in Münster (Westfalen); gest. 8. Oktober 1937 in Raron, Kanton Wallis, Schweiz) war ein deutscher Maler, Graphiker und Buchkünstler. Als Monogramm (ML) vor allem bei seinen buchkünstlerischen Arbeiten benutzte er den Buchstaben \"M\" mittig geschnitten vom Buchstaben \"L\"...- Mit 14 begann er eine Ausbildung zum Glasmaler. Nach der Arbeit belegte er bei der Münsterschen Kunstgenossenschaft Kurse an der Zeichen-, Mal- und Modellierschule. Nach der Ausbildung ging er 1884 nach BERLIN, wo er an der HOCHSCHULE DER BILDENDEN KÜNSTE studierte und nebenbei als Glasmaler arbeitete. Nach dem Ende des Studiums malte Lechter zunächst Gebrauchskunst, etwa für Werbemittel, bis Fritz GURLITT 1896 eine Ausstellung einrichtete. Lechter schaffte damit den Durchbruch seiner Kunst in Berlin. Prägend war die Begegnung mit Stefan GEORGE, für den Lechter viele Bücher im Georg BONDI Verlag buchkünstlerisch gestaltete. - Er erhielt 1898 von Jakob PALLENBERG den Auftrag zur Ausgestaltung des Pallenberg-Saales mit Glasfenstern und Mosaiken am Kölner MUSEUM für Angewandte Kunst. Für die 1899/1900 ausgeführte Gesamtgestaltung erhielt er 1900 auf der PARISER WELTAUSSTELLUNG einen Grand Prix...- Am 30. September 1910 reiste Lechter mit Karl WOLFSKEHL nach Indien ab. Lechter begab sich dort auf eine fünfmonatige Reise über CEYLON, MADRAS und ADYAR, das Zentrum der Adyar-TG. Dabei führte er Tagebuch. Dieses wurde nach seiner Rückkehr in kleiner Auflage (333 Exemplare) als zweiter Druck der von Lechter gegründeten EINHORN PRESSE mit besonderem Buchschmuck veröffentlicht.

In the original publisher's slipcase with printed spine label, one of 460 copies. In near fine condition with a touch of rubbing. Uncommon in this condition and in the original slipcase. The title "Tales of Mystery and Imagination" was first used by The World's Classics and printed by Grant Richard in 1902. The title of this collection was then adopted by Padraic Colum in 1908 in view of the growing reputation of Poe's taste for suspense, especially in the context of what his French critic M. Brunetiere called events "on the margin" of life. The original collection, in keeping with its title, deliberately excluded Poe's poems, comedies and essays. There are twenty-five tales including The Pit and the Pendulum, The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Fall of the House of Usher and The Descent into the Maelstrom.

        A Study of Tom Thomson. The Story of a Man Who Looked for Beauty and for Truth in the Wilderness

      Discus Press, Toronto - 1935, 1st limited edition. () Very good. xxii, 133pp. Octavo. Green cloth covered boards with gilt lettering on spine. Text block is generally very clean and bright. A few B / W illustrations within. Four tipped in colour plate reproductions, including frontis. Complete with the original slip case. A nice copy. Signed and numbered in black ink by the author in the limitation page. 32 / 100 copes. Canadian author Blowden Davies moved to Toronto in 1921 where she met with the GROUP of SEVEN, a group of artists renowned for their post-impressionist styled portrayals of Canadian landscapes. Her interest in Canada's artistic community grew leading to the authorship of this book. Davies' texts are well known for exploring Canadian social history. Blodwen Davies was a prolific writer, publishing works including: Storied Streets of Quebec (1927), Old Father Forest (1930), Daniel Du Lhut (1930), Ruffles and Rapiers (1930), Saguenay and Gaspe (1932), Romantic Quebec (1932), the Charm of Ottawa (1932), Youth, Marriage and the Family (1948), Quebec: Portrait of a Province (1952) and Ottawa: Portrait of a Capital (1954). The majority of Davies' work was historical, but in the years leading up to her death she developed an interest in folklore and mennonite history in Canada. It would appear there are two issues of the book, one with the limitation page indicating a limitation of only 100 copies as in this example. We also have a copy with a limitation page showing 450 copies were printed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Taille de l'homme

      - Grasset, Paris 1935, 12x19cm, broché. - Prima edizione, una copia del servizio stampa. Firmato autografo di Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz a Robert Garric. Riformista cattolica, è stato il   fondatore di "Squadre sociali" nel 1920, che mirava a stabilire una élite sociale e portare la buona parola su confraternita nata delle trincee ai lavoratori, nella tradizione del mecenatismo. Simone de Beauvoir, allora allievo di Robert Garric in filosofia presso Sainte-Marie Istituto di Neuilly, lo ricorda   nelle sue "Memorie di un Wench Tidy"   "È apparso Garric; Ho dimenticato tutto il resto e me stesso; l'autorità della sua voce mi sottomesso. In vent'anni si ha spiegato, aveva scoperto nelle trincee le gioie di cameratismo che rimosse le barriere sociali. [...] Per negare tutti i limiti e tutte le separazioni, uscire dalla mia classe, fuori dalla mia pelle: questo slogan mi elettrizzava. [...] Deve servire la mia vita! Deve servire per tutta la vita! " Torna passati, piccoli punti luce sulle stoviglie, letture pochi segni a matita dall'artista dedicatario dei margini di alcune foglie. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition originale, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Envoi autographe signé de Charles-Ferdinand Ramuz à Robert Garric. Catholique réformiste, il fut le fondateur des « Équipes sociales » en 1920, qui visaient à constituer une élite sociale et à apporter la bonne parole sur la confraternité née des tranchées aux ouvriers, dans la tradition des patronages. Simone de Beauvoir, alors élève de Robert Garric en philosophie à l'Institut Sainte-Marie de Neuilly, se souvient de lui dans ses "Mémoires d'une jeune fille rangée" : « Garric parut ; j'oubliai tout le reste et moi-même ; l'autorité de sa voix me subjugua. À vingt ans, nous expliqua-t-il, il avait découvert dans les tranchées les joies d'une camaraderie qui supprimait les barrières sociales. [...] Nier toutes les limites et toutes les séparations, sortir de ma classe, sortir de ma peau : ce mot d'ordre m'électrisa. [...] Il faut que ma vie serve ! Il faut que dans ma vie tout serve ! » Dos passé, petites taches claires sur les plats, quelques repères de lecture au crayon de papier par le dédicataire en marges de certains feuillets.

        Propulsione a reazione senza utilizzazione dell’aria.

      Rome, 1935. Rynin, Nikolai Alexseevich (1887-1942). Propulsione a reazione senza utilizzazione dell’aria. Preprint from Convegno di scienze, fisiche, matematiche e naturali, 30 settembre – 6 ottobre 1935-XIII: Tema, le alte velocit? in aviazione (Rome: Reale Accademia d’Italia, 1935). 22pp. Text diagrams. 244 x 172 mm. Original printed self-wrappers; boxed. Fine copy, from the library of aviation and aerospace pioneer Theodore von Kármán (1881-1963), with his stamp and docketing on the front wrapper. Extremely Rare Preprint, with no copies listed in OCLC. Rynin (spelled “Rinin” here) was a Russian civil engineer, aerospace researcher and promoter of space travel. In 1929 Rynin helped to found the Leningrad branch of the USSR’s Gruppa Isutcheniya Reaktinovo Dvisheniya (Group for the study of reaction motion; i.e. jet propulsion and rocketry), and between 1928 and 1932 he published his monumental nine-volume Mezhplanetnye Soobschniya (Interplanetary communications), an encyclopedia of space travel. In 1935 Rynin was invited to present a paper at the fifth Volta Conference in Rome, dedicated to the topic of “High velocity in aviation.” Rynin’s paper was on the subject of jet propulsion in the absence of air; it is illustrated with diagrams of rocket engines and related items. According to a notice inside the front wrapper, this preprint (and others from the Volta Conference) was to be treated as a manuscript, for distribution to participants in the conference, with any reproduction strictly forbidden. Preprints from the Volta Conference are extraordinarily rare. This copy is from the library of aviation and aerospace pioneer Theodore von Kármán, founder of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, who was also a participant in the Volta Conference.

        Lettre autographe de Frédéric Lemaître, suivie des textes imprimés de: L'Auberge des Adrets, et Robert Macaire

      Imprimerie Normale de Jules Didot l'Aîné 1935 - In-4 relié composé de deux drames interprétés par Frédéric Lemaître (1800-1876), le "Talma des boulevard": L'Auberge des Adrets (64pp.) et Robert Macaire (paginé 275-302) dans lesquelles il interprète Macaire. Une lettre autographe a été fixée sur une réglette de papier en début de reliure, adressée à Alexandre Dumas ("mon cher Dumas"). Belle reliure avec étiquette de percaline au dos. Antoine Louis Prosper Lemaître, dit Frédérick Lemaître, né au Havre le 29 juillet 18001 et mort à Paris le 26 janvier 1876, est un acteur français. Il fut l'un des plus célèbres acteurs du boulevard du crime. Frédérick Lemaître passe son enfance au Havre où son père est architecte. À la mort de son père, il monte à Paris où il vit de petits travaux. Attiré par le théâtre, il s'inscrit au conservatoire. Lemaître, après des études au Conservatoire, se choisit le prénom de scène « Frédérick ». Refusé dans un premier temps à l'Odéon, il signe un engagement aux Variétés-Amusantes pour une pièce à trois acteurs, Pyrame et Thisbé. Il y jouait le rôle du lion. Puis il commence véritablement sa carrière d'acteur sur le « boulevard du crime » dans des mélodrames. Il crée notamment le personnage inspiré du bandit Robert Macaire dans l'Auberge des Adrets. Victor Hugo, qui voit en lui l'acteur de génie, le distribue également dans des rôles de jeunes premiers sensibles, Ruy Blas ou le jeune Gennaro dans Lucrèce Borgia. Il crée aussi le rôle de Kean d'Alexandre Dumas et fait découvrir au public français Hamlet de William Shakespeare. Victor Hugo tenta en vain de le faire admettre à la Comédie-Française qui le refusa. Lorsque la popularité du drame romantique commença à décroître, il entra au Boulevard où il connut un succès durable, ce qui lui valut le surnom de « Talma des boulevards ». Marié en 1826 avec l'actrice Sophie Halligner (belle-soeur du musicien Ernest Boulanger), il eut quatre enfants. Durant treize ans, il fut l'amant de Clarisse Midroy. Son fils Charles Lemaître, comédien lui aussi, mourut en se défenestrant dans un accès de démence due à une forte fièvre [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
