        [Photo Album]: Photo Strips Recording Baby's First Years Beginning in 1935

      1935 - 1937. Oblong octavo measuring 7" x 10". String-tied brown leather over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 85 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs, many of which are printed as photo strips, measuring between 1.5" x 1.5" and 4" x 6", with some captions. Album is very good with tiny chips and edgewear with near fine photographs.A collection of photographs documenting the first two years of a child's life beginning at six weeks in 1935. Roughly half of the photos are printed as photo strips and are mounted in the album in their completed form. Many of the other photos are small format prints as well as images that have been separated from their original strips. The photos show the newborn throughout the years of 1935 to 1937, when he is listed as 2 1/2 years old. Throughout the album he is held and pampered by family and friends as he grows into a little boy. The fact that his early years were heavily documented in photo strip prints is unusual as is the volume of this style of prints collected into a single album, especially as the technology and popularity of the strips was relatively new.The first time a photo booth machine was introduced to the public was at the Paris World's fair in 1889. Although it was a success, the concept wouldn't take widespread popularity until 1925 with the invention of the curtain-closed booth we know today by Russian immigrant Anatol Josepho. It was set up on Broadway in New York City and in the first six months saw around 280,000 visitors. A March 1927 headline of The New York Times read: "Slot Photo Device Brings $1,000,000 to Young Inventor." These photos represent the first decade of modern photo strip prints.An interesting accumulation of early photo strip prints which have been collected in a large quantity in a single album. .

        Autograph letter signed (RK").

      Bateman's, Burwash, Sussex, 3. VI. 1935. - 8vo. 1 p. To Walter Creighton: "We were afraid it was something of that kind, as we haven't seen anything of your activities for so long. It's good to know that you are better [.]". - Walter Creighton (1878-1958) was a son of Mandell Creighton, Bishop of London, and Louise Creighton, "who was one of Robert von Glehn's daughters. He gave up training to be a doctor to train as a singer; he gave the first performance of Vaughan Williams's Songs of Travel in 1904 and also had a minor career as an actor. After various personal crises, he served with distinction in the First World War, and was awarded the Military Cross. He developed into an excellent organiser, and in 1924 organised the Pageant of Empire at Wembley Stadium; in 1934, he devised and organised the Pageant of Parliament at the Royal Albert Hall. In after years, he moved to Antibes" (Valerie Langfield: Roger Quilter. His Life and Music. Woodbridge, The Boydell Press, 2002, p. 287). - On headed paper.

        ANAKREON 1. Ausgabe

      Barcelona, ohne Verlagsangabe 1935 - unpag. ca. 60 S. kl. 8°. Pergament, gering verzogener Buchdeckel, gutes Ex., SEHR SELTEN Etta Federn-Kohlhaas (* 28. April 1883 in Wien; gest. 9. Mai 1951 in Paris) hieß eigentlich Marietta Federn und war eine österreichische Schriftstellerin und Übersetzerin, die auch als Etta Kirmsse oder Esperanza publizierte. Nach dem Erscheinen ihrer Biographie über Walter Rathenau wurde sie von rechten Kreisen angefeindet, erhielt Morddrohungen und ging deswegen 1932 mit ihren Kindern nach Spanien. Dort engagierte sie sich in der Reformpädagogik und unterrichtete im Kulturzentrum der anarchosyndikalistischen Frauenbewegung von Barcelona Literatur, Sprache und Pädagogik. 1938 ging sie wegen der zunehmenden Bombardierungen Barcelonas infolge des Spanischen Bürgerkrieges nach Frankreich. Sie bemühte sich erfolglos um eine Ausreise in die USA, arbeitete als Übersetzerin und Verteilerin illegaler Schriften in der Résistance mit und lebte von 1940 bis Kriegsende versteckt in einem Kloster nahe Lyon. Weil ihr ältester Sohn als Résistance-Mitglied in einem Gefecht 1945 getötet wurde, erhielt sie die französische Staatsbürgerschaft.

        Four-Page Autograph Letter Signed [and] Christmas Card with Autograph Note Signed to Katherine Jackson

      1935 and 1936. Four page Autograph Letter Signed sent from London on March 29, 1935 with its original mailing envelope [with] a printed Christmas Card with an undated Autograph Note; Both the letter and card are Signed ("Tom Wolfe"), with a third Signature ("Thomas Wolfe") on the return address of the envelope. Folded for mailing, else fine.Katherine Jackson was the daughter of Christian Gauss, the Dean of Princeton College, who was lifelong friend and mentor of F. Scott Fitzgerald. She herself was an accomplished and well-known editor at Scribner's Magazine, working with legendary editor Max Perkins, and later at Harper's Magazine, where she wrote the "Books in Brief" column from 1944 to 1969. The position placed her in contact with many of the most prominent writers and scholars of the day, many of whom she befriended, including Thomas Wolfe.The four-page ALS to Jackson is a heartfelt message composed in London in March of 1935. Wolfe felt isolated from America and he describes a restless night in Paris in which he "was in a bad state" and "could get no sleep [so] I walked the streets all night long until it seemed I had lost the secret of sleep." He explains that he has felt better since arriving in England and that next he's off to Denmark and then Russia. He requests information from the young editor about his forthcoming book Of Time and the River so he can "continue the brawl with Max [Perkins] on more even terms when I come back." He closes by explaining that he has had no news from home but for "two cables and a letter from Max --- but for his sake, and for Scribner's, and for my cure, and because I don't want to disappoint all of you whose generous belief and good wishes mean so much to me -- I hope and pray to God it has gone well." The undated Christmas Card (likely from 1935) has a printed greeting that Wolfe has added to with a note: "Dear Mrs. Jackson: --- I haven't your address with me at present so am leaving this on your desk -- I wish you and all the Jacksons the happiest and the most successful kind of New Year --- Tom Wolfe."The friendship hit a road bump the following year after Jackson told Wolfe that it was not prudent to publish stories in magazines as opposed to books, causing a stir between Wolfe and editor Maxwell Perkins, who later had to smooth Wolfe's ruffled feathers and have a talk with Jackson. The details of this incident are described in a retained carbon copy of letter to her parents from early 1936 that is included here.Wonderful correspondence from Wolfe illustrating his lively working relationship with Max Perkins and Scribner's editors. .

        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.

        Design for League of Nations Sculpture - 'In the Image of God created he him'

      1935 - Pencil and red ink. 5.5 x 18.5 cms, framed and glazed. In 1935 Eric Gill was commissioned by the British Government to provide a huge relief sculpture for the League of Nations Bukliding in Geneva. His first idea was to depict Christ driving the money changers from the Temple but this was rejected so in June 1935 Gill wrote to Anthony Eden with a new idea: The Creation of Man. This drawing shows the design almost exactly as it was executed - there is an additional Latin phrase in the final carving. The Latin here is Genesis Chapter I "In the Image of God created he him" and the English lettering is the beginning of 'The Wreck of the Deutschland' by Gerard Manley Hopkins. The sculpture was carved in 1937 and installed in 1938. With the drawing is a relief engraving of the finished sculpture and a postcard of it in situ.

        Cartas de Affonso de Albuquerque, seguidas de documentos que as elucidam [.] sob a direcção de Raymundo António de Bulhão Pato [.].

      Lisbon, Typographia da Academia Real das Sciencias, 1884-1935. - Small folio (235 x 295 mm). 7 vols. XXIII, (1), 448 pp. LVIII, 454, (2) pp. XV, (1), 406, (2) pp. XXXVI, 332 pp. CXLVII, (1), 514 pp. CVIII, 498, (2) pp. 313 pp. Splendidly gilt mottled full calf bindings with red spine labels and gilt arms to covers. Marbled endpapers. The letters of Afonso d'Albuquerque (1453-1515), the Great, published from 1884 onwards under the direction of the Academia Real das Sciencias de Lisboa, and edited by Raymundo Antonio de Bulhão Pato. While Albuquerque's famous "Commentaries", which ran to a large number of editions, were collected from his papers by his son Afonso (d. 1580), who published them posthumously in 1557, "the only documents actually originating from the father are in the form of letters" (Howgego). This definitive collection includes a large number of despatches to the King. Albuquerque was one of the most striking personalities in the history of Portuguese discovery and colonialism and is the founder of the Portuguese Empire in the East Indies. He advanced the three-fold Portuguese grand scheme of combatting Islam and securing the trade of spices and the establishment of a vast Portuguese Asian empire. He was the first European to enter the Gulf, led the first voyage by a European fleet into the Red Sea, and was also the first westerner to reach the coast of South-Eastern Arabia: "In 1506 Albuquerque was despatched from Lisbon on an expedition, intended to consolidate Portuguese supremacy in the Indian Ocean. His instructions were to monopolize trade with East India for Portugal, and to exclude both Venetians and Saracens from Indian waters [.] Attacks were made on the Arab ports at Malindi, Hoja, Lamu and Brava, before continuing to Socotra [.] Sailing from Socotra with six ships, Albuquerque coasted the Arabian peninsula, sacked Muscat and Sohar, and then launched an attack on Hormuz during the months of September and October 1507. In spite of the overwhelming forces assembled against him by the island's twelve-year-old ruler, Albuquerque mounted a successful siege, with the result that the ruler become a vassal of the Portuguese crown [.]" (Howgego I, 19-21). - Occasional foxing and browning as common, due to paper; but on the whole a very clean, wide-margined copy, splendidly bound for Dom Diogo de Bragança, Marquês de Marialva (1930-2012), with his arms on the upper covers. Howgego I, 21. Henze I, 36. OCLC 3133888. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
