        Green Hills of Africa (Inscribed Association Copy)

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1935. Second printing. Near Fine/Good. A phenomenal association copy. This book with "P.O. Box 406 Key West Florida" written on the front paste down in the author's hand. Then, in a different pen, he has inscribed it: "To Spanish Mac with much love from her old Busted Doll Ernest Hemingway. Christmas 1935." Spanish Mac (or Mackerel) was a nickname for Elsie MacDonald, a nurse who met and attended to Hemingway when he was injured in Italy during the first World War at just 19 years old. Her nickname for Hemingway was "Busted Doll" after he came into her care with bullet wounds in his right leg. His experiences in Italy, particularly his convalescence and infatuation with one of the other nurses, Agnes von Kurowsky, became the basis for "A Farewell to Arms." In that book, Agnes is portrayed as Catherine Barclay, and Elsie MacDonald is represented by the matronly Helen Ferguson, or "Fergie" as she is sometimes called. Our belief is that this copy was in Hemingway's library (hence his address on the paste-down), before being sent to his old friend as a Christmas present in 1935. Also included with the book is a signed letter of provenance from Elsie MacDonald's grandniece, tracing the provenance of the book and describing Elsie's relationship with Hemingway. There is a large portrait of Elsie with several other nurses from her time in Italy, a second smaller portrait of her out of uniform, a snapshot of her smoking on a ship (apparently from 1914), her transatlantic passage papers, an official Italian document about her work as a nurse for the Red Cross, and other newspaper clippings and small photos. In all, a lovely archive from someone who was instrumental in Hemingway's time in Italy and plays a fairly active role in his novel, "A Farewell to Arms." The book is in Near Fine condition. One of Elsie's pictures was taped to the inscribed leaf and has left tape ghosts there. Whether it was placed there by Hemingway when he sent the book to her, we cannot say, but the inscription leaves room for it. The green cloth spine is unfaded, which is unusual. The book is dated 1935 on the title page and has the Scribner's seal on the copyright page, but no "A," so a second printing. The dust jacket is Good only, with several large creases and tears, rubbing etc, although largely intact. Near Fine in Good dust jacket.

        Mediterranean Vacation Photograph Album with Tourist Snapshots of Walt and Lillian Disney Carrying a Mickey Mouse Doll

      Primarily Italy and aboard the S.S. Rex, 1935. Photograph Album. Very Good. The hardcover album is 6" x 9" and filled with over 100 uncaptioned 2.5" square photographs. Four colorful tourist labels for Florence, Naples, Capri, and Lake Como are affixed to the front cover. Photographs include shipboard swimming, tennis, dining, relaxing, etc. Other photographs are of Capri, Pompeii, Malta, the Amalfi Coast, and other Mediterranean tourist sites. Of special note are three rare snapshots of Walt and Lillian Disney onboard a passenger ship, S.S. Rex. In two of the photos, Walt and Lillian are carrying a large Mickey Mouse doll. In the third, Walt appears to be discussing business with two other men, one of whom is holding a Mickey doll; Lillian is barely visible along the right margin, also holding a Mickey Mouse doll. (A publicity photograph in the Disney collection shows Walt and Lillian in the same clothes and carrying the same Mickey doll while strolling on the deck of the Rex, a xerox copy will be included.) Walt and Lillian, along with Roy and his wife Edna, had taken an extended European vacation to relieve the strain caused by problems encountered in the development of Snow White. After six weeks, they boarded the Italian steamship, S.S. Rex, on 24 July for their return trip home. Apparently the compiler of this scrapbook was on the same voyage to New York and snapped these photos. The trip rejuvenated Walt and Roy, and both eagerly and energetically returned to the studio. In addition to providing the impetus needed to finish Snow White, the European trip had another lasting effect. Walt had purchased over 300 books while on the trip and later wrote in a memo, "Some of those little books which I brought back with me from Europe have very fascinating illustrations of little people, bees, and small insects who live in mushrooms, pumpkins, etc. This quaint atmosphere fascinates me." Apparently, it also resulted in such little characters becoming a staple in his films. (see Disney's Grand Tour by Didier Ghez).

        List Showing Names , Titles, and Modes of Address of the More Important Sovereigns, Ruling Princes, Chiefs, Nobles, Etc. Having Relations with the India Government. ALQABNAMAH. Corrected Up to the 5th October 1935. Confidential.

      Govt of India Press, New Delhi 1935 - iii.173pp. Colophon: GIPD-S2-163(C) F&PD-12-12-35-80. Original printed blue paper covered boards with cloth spine, stitched through punched holes (probably originally designed so that pages could be inserted or replaced from titme to time in the manner of some military and political manuals), the boards very worn and the cloth spine largely disintegrated, front board detached, the work is quite worn, having been very much a working copy. This copy is stamped on the front cover "COPY NO 61" (the entire print run was only 80) and is further marked in ink "Political Dept (Issue Branch) Political Supdt. Copy (1)". An old library stamp to the title page [FOREIGN AND POL. DEPT, LIBRARY - SIMLA]. The work is divided into four sections: 1. LIST OF INDEPENDENT STATES [Nepal, Siam, Tibet]; 2. LIST OF PROTECTORATE RULERS [Bhutan, Chitral, Hunza, Muscat & Oman, Qaiwain, Al-Hauta, Shihr, Qishn, Abu Dhabi, Al Qara];3. LIST OF RULING PRINCES AND CHIEFS IN INDIA WITH TITLES AND MODES OF ADDRESS [211 entries]; 4. MISCELLANEOUS [Indore, Loharu, Aga Khan, Arcot, Travancore, Mysore, Muhammesah, Zanzibar]. The information is given in tabular form under the headings: Names of State; Name and address [meaning the form in which he was addressed - Your Highness, etc|] of Ruler in Persian; Name and address of Ruler in English; Commencement and conclusion of letter in English and colour of Crest; Highest British Authority by whom hitherto addressed; No of Guns in salute(Permanent/Personal); Remarks. This copy has been much used and there are numerous highly illuminating manuscript additions, alterations, and amendments (honorary ranks, promotions, new titles, orders, changes in forms of address, etc) added to many entries in pencil and both black and red ink. There are also some typed notes (one, for instance, dealing with the viceroy's decision about the succession to a state whose ruler had died without adopting an heir) tipped in or attached. Three printed lists of amendments (13-15 of 1942/3/4) are loosely inserted. The niceties and subtleties of diplomatic convention are here formalised and recorded in a form which is seldom seen outside high official circles. Many Indian Rulers were particularly fastidious about titles and forms of address and often fiercely competitive (for example the endless wrangling by the Maharaja Bhupinder Singh of Patiala over the number of guns used for his salute and his rivalry with other senior Maharajas, such as Bikaner), which is reason enough for the confidential nature of this printing of such potentially contentious material. One can well appreciate the need to know who had previously written to a ruler as an address from the Agent to the Governor General would imply an enhanced status to one who had previousely only been addressed by a Resident. The detailed forms of greeting and conclusion reveal a myriad of conventions and delicate grades of friendhsip or familiarity. To Dungarpur the Viceroy remains "with much consideration Your Highness' sincere friend" whereas to Jaipur he desires "to express the high consideration which I entertain for Your Highness and to subscribe myself Your Highness' sincere friend". Some of the forms of address are wonderfully grand and all-embracing, none more so than this one required by the Regent of Tibet " The Exalted Presence of Lotus-footed Golden throne of the Great Retting Hutuktu, His Highness the Regent of Tibet, the Protector of all the living beings of the Snowy Country." The added remarks are mainly notes about the origin of titles but there are also some very indiviidual notes and warnings such as that for Indore which notes "The title 'Sir' is not to be employed in addressing His Highness (vide File No 976-H of 1923). No doubt that dusty file gives details of the dreadful faux pas of Indore. Colours of Kharita bags and fastenings are also given. A remarkable survival. There is a copy of the same date in ther India Office Library's successor at the British Library and th [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Epilogue.

      Deyá, Majorca, & London: the Seizin Press, & Constable & Co Ltd,, 1935-7. A Critical Summary. 3 volumes, octavo. Original buff (vol. 1), green (2) and red (3) paper boards, titles to spines in black, front boards with titles and wood-engraved vignette in black. 8 half-tone plates. Spines sunned, extremities lightly bumped in places, contents toned, vol. 1 rear board slightly marked and with small dent to spine, vol. 2 with surface-splitting to joints repaired with adhesive, loss to head of spine and boards sunned towards edges, vol. 3 with scattered pencilled annotations, a very good set. First editions, all published of Riding and Graves's journal of poetry and criticism, with contributions by various members of Riding's Deyá circle, the "arbitrary array of individuals", in large part retired English expatriates, whom she adopted and encouraged to write, and "who provided an eccentric and - given her particular gifts as a salon impresario - far more fertile milieu than she might of found had she remained in London" (Baker, In Extremis: The Life of Laura Riding, p. 318). Riding's influence on Graves was profound: soon after meeting "he had soon come to depend upon her not only as lover, companion, critic, and mentor ? but also as a unique source of ultimate wisdom" (ODNB). The couple decamped to Majorca in 1929, though by the time the Spanish Civil War forced them to leave for mainland Europe and eventually America, Riding had long been disenchanted with Graves and in 1939 left him to marry Schuyler Jackson; Epilogue was informally completed by Riding's The World and Ourselves (1938), to which Graves contributed a brief letter though played no editorial role.

        "Girl Campers" [story in] Woman's World, July 1935

      Mount Morris, Illinois: Woman's World Publishing. 1935. Magazine. 26pp. Stapled wrappers. Light general wear at the edges and with the typical subscription stamp in the upper left corner, very good. Highsmith's first published work, at the age of 14, a series of letters written to her mother and stepfather from a camp for girls when she was only 12, accompanied by four of her cartoons. The letters contain many of the comments one would expect from a young girl along with several intriguing comments predicting her brief comic book career ("bring the Sunday funny papers if you come."); her sexuality ("We are going swimming 'Diana' tonight ... Diana means without any clothes on at all. Do you think it's all right to go in Diana?"); and her future in publishing ("There is a girl here named Janet Armstrong that I want you to meet. She lives in Tudor City and her father is a publisher."). A remarkable piece of juvenilia from this notable American writer best known for Strangers on a Train and her series of Tom Ripley crime novels. .

        Princess Hildegarde (SIGNED)

      Row, Peterson and Company, Evanston, Illinois 1935 - Book will close its text block but not its boards; thus, "very good." Boards are pumpkin cloth illustrated in black; a few lighter patches to rear board. Vertical strips of material which we take to be white library tape run along inside edges of boards at hinges; this material has been tucked UNDER the endpapers; we thus conclude this is a "reinforced library binding", as made. No date later than 1935 copyright, below which appears the cryptic numeral "873." Dated by the author "Xmas 1934" (making this a very early copy) and boldly signed to verso of FFE "Compliments of the Author / Sidney Baldwin." To title page, Uncle Raymond has then written to Cindy, Billy, & Tommy: "Ask Gran to tell you more about Sidney Baldwin, who writes a daily column for the Peoria Journal Star, which her father once owned." By the author of "Young Prince Hubert." Hard-to-find in signed condition. 304 pp. Reduced from $1,600. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Tiny bank cancellation holes nick the ""A"" and ""l"" in ""Amelia."" Surface creases, nicked at edges, folds at upper corners; after Earhart signed it, Nikrent may have folded it and put it in his pocket. Good condition.There are a few holograph edits in unknown hand. ""Burbank, California"" was crossed out and replaced with ""New York City."" Also crossed out was ""Burbank Branch / Security First National / Bank of Los Angeles / 101 East San Fernando Boulevard,"" replaced with ""Fifth Avenue Bank / New York, N.Y.""Ostensibly, Amelia Earhart signed this check just before she left Los Angeles County's Burbank airport for her flight to Mexico City. It was then endorsed by the NAA's timer, Joe Nikrent, who placed a barograph aboard her plane to record the flight. On April 19, 1935, at 9:55pm, Amelia Earhart took off from the United Air Terminal in Burbank, California, for a 1,750-mile goodwill flight to Mexico City. Joe Nikrent, who endorsed this check, was the NAA timer. He placed a barograph aboard her plane. When she arrived in Mexico City on April 20th, she landed to crowd of over 20,000 persons. At a special session of the City Council, Earhart was presented with a gold medal for her flight. She was the first person to fly solo from Los Angeles to Mexico City, April 19-20, 1935, completing the trip in 13 hours 23 minutes. The National Aeronautic Association was founded in 1905 as the Aero Club of America. it was incorporated as the NAA in 1922. Until the Civil Aeronautics Act of 1926, it was the sole issuer of pilot licenses in America. The NAA is the oldest national aviation club in the United States and one of the oldest in the world. It has certified aviation and aerospace records in the United States since 1905; its current records database includes over 8,000 record flights."
