      1935. Darrow Attends a Banquet in Honor Of Lincoln Steffens [Darrow, Clarence (1857-1938)]. [Steffens, Lincoln (1866-1936)]. [12" x 20" Photograph of a Banquet Honoring Steffens, Party Includes Clarence and Ruby Darrow] New York: Standard Flashlight Company, 27 April 1931. [With] [11" x 6" Printed List of People Who Attended the Banquet]. [And] Darrow, Clarence. [Filene, Edward A. (1860-1937)]. [Autograph Letter, Signed, To Filene, On the Letterhead of the Murray Hill Hotel, New York, New York, April 17, 1931]. Single 9-1/2" x 6" sheet. Some edgewear to photo, upper left corner of image repaired, light toning and fold lines to list, early annotations to photograph, a few chips and nicks to edges of both. Items mounted on 16" x 32" foam-core board. Letter, which is not mounted, has some toning, two horizontal fold lines, a few light pencil lines (offsetting from another document) and glue residue to verso, probably from mounting in an album, otherwise fine. Three items in all. * There are two captions at the foot of the image. One identifies the photography company, the other reads "Dinner to Lincoln Steffens and Characters in His Book Given by Edward A. Filene. Ritz Carlton Hotel April 27, 1931." The list, which includes several media people, social reformers and reform-minded politicians, such as Ida Tarbell and Bernard Baruch, is captioned: "Cast of Characters from "The Autobiography of Lincoln Steffens" and from his next book, present at the dinner given to the author and his characters by Edward A. Filene, Ritz-Carlton Hotel, April 27, 1931." Some of the attendees are identified in a contemporary hand. Darrow is seated at the center of the main table next to Steffens; Ruby Darrow is sitting at the right end. Darrow, in his letter, thanks Filene for the invitation to the event, "which I am very glad to accept" and adds: "Mrs. Darrow is here with me. May I bring her along?" This late request may be the reason why Ruby Darrow is seated several places away from Clarence.

        Jayhawker A Play in Three Acts [Signed by Sinclair Lewis]

      Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1935, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good +, Dust Jacket Condition: very good, First editionA Very Good + copy of the first edition, first printing (spine ends pushed with some tiny fraying, slight amount of fading to the board edges and spine head as is usual for this title), in a Very Good dust jacket (chip to the spine head with an associated tear, small chips to the spine tail and ends of the flap folds, age toning to the edges of the flaps and rear panel, corner-clipped by the Publisher but not price-clipped and showing the price at $2.00 -- all unsurprising for this jacket which often is found worn), SIGNED BY SINCLAIR LEWIS on the title page; Sinclair Lewis' debut (and only) published Play, a joint effort by Sinclair Lewis and by Lloyd Lewis, the then drama critic for the Chicago Daily News and a Civil War history specialist. Sinclair Lewis won the 1930 Nobel Prize in Literature for "for his vigorous and graphic art of description and his ability to create, with wit and humour, new types of characters", making him the first author from the United States to win the Prize. Declared by Sinclair Lewis Bibliographer Stephen Pastore to be "...perhaps the scarcest title in the post-1930 Lewis lexicon", the first edition of Jayhawker consisted of a mere 1,076 copies. The Play is set during the Kansas Missouri border wars which took place off and on from about 1855 to 1864. During this period, militant bands of nominal free-staters who opposed Slavery but who were willing to pillage, rob, and kill for other reasons as well, adopted the term to describe themselves. With relatively few copies of the first edition having been produced and with many of them no doubt having been claimed by time, first edition copies are rather scarce to the market.Although signed copies of Sinclair Lewis works generally are not terribly scarce, signed copies of "Jayhawker" are rare. In addition to having been signed, this copy bears a notable Provenance, having come from the Estate of decorated Naval Officer and Actor Douglas Fairbanks whose bookplate resides on the book's front pastedown. A Very Good+ copy of what itself is a rather uncommon book, and one hardly ever found signed, SIGNED BY SINCLAIR LEWIS. RARE.

        Innocence and Design

      London: Macmillan & Co., Ltd., 1935. Octavo. Original green cloth, elaborate textured decoration to boards in blind, titles to spine gilt. With the pictorial dust ajcket. Illustrated throughout by Sykes. A lovely copy in the typically sunned and little rubbed dust jacket with a single small internal repair. First edition, sole impression. A spectacular pseudonymous, presentation copy, inscribed and with an original presentation ink drawing, by Sykes, "To my great new friend Rex Whistler, Richard Waughburton 5th July 1935". Beneath this inscription is an drawing in which two figures stting hunched over a wrting table, quills in hands one of whom is pointing up to the associated inscription. Innocence and Design was a notorious roman a clef jointly written by Sykes and Byron. It was Byron's only full-length work of fiction. A presentation to such a luminary as the great Rex Whistler, especially given the nature and subject of this novel, is compelling indeed.
