        Packaging for Inventum-Bilthoven

      1935. COHEN, Fré. [Packaging for Inventum-Bilthoven]. Original cardboard box / packaging printed in blue, black, gold, and red, marked "frécohen" on rear side panel, and "N.V. Inventum-Bildhoven" on two sides, original stapled panels. [Netherlands, ca. 1935]. |~||~||~||~| Original package design by Jewish female graphic artist Fré Cohen for Inventum, a Dutch company founded in 1908 and still in operation today. The motif playfully incorporates tubes, wires, and a hanging lighting device with a bold modern colour palette. Also apparent in the design are the influences of the DeStijl and Constructivism movements. Starting her career in illustration and advertising for the cable company Draka, Cohen soon turned to design and layout work for publications by the Social Democratic Workers Party. Throughout the war years, Cohen kept working illicitly and was forced into hiding in various cities, from Amsterdam to Rotterdam, Diemen, and finally Borne. It was in Borne, 1943, that she was captured by the Germans and subsequently ended her own life at the age of 39. Much of her work was saved by her sister, Fietje Cohen whose son then placed these items in the Amsterdam Historical Society. Other items are held in Amsterdam in the collections of the Stedelijk Museum and the International Institute of Social History. The box with dampstains, toning and edgewear (more apparent on plain bottom portion of box). Some attempts at colour restoration primarily along edges. Van Dam, Fre Cohen Leven en Werk 812.

        Taille de l'homme EDITION ORIGINALE Service de presse ENVOI AUTOGRAPHE

      Paris: Grasset, 1935. Fine. Grasset, Paris 1935, 12x19cm, broché. - 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. - [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.

        A packet of nine inscribed offprints:

Sansoni - Editore/Tupograpseion Murtidë/Akademische Druck - U. Verlagsanstalt/, 1935-89. Charlemagne and Palestine; Byzantine and Hellene in the Fourteenth Century; Byzantine Linguists; The Byzantine Provincial Peoples and the Crusade; The Decline of the Crusading Idea; The Greeks in Antioch at the time of the Crusades; "The Popular Bronze Reliquary Crosses of Byzantium" (within Festschrift W. Sas - Zaloziecky, Zum 60. Geburtstag); "Pope Nicholas III and Byzantine Gold" (within Mélanges offerts a Étienne Gilson de L'Académie Française); Patmos as seen by British Travellers. Nine octavo offprints, all in original printed wrappers. Contained within an envelope addressed in Runciman's hand to Anthony Hobson, 9 Chester Place, N.W.1. Envelope somewhat creased with a few minor tears. Staples in the first work slightly rusted, occasional mild creasing to the edges of wrappers, but on the whole in excellent condition. A selection of nine inscribed offprints of historical essays and articles by Steven Runciman for English, Greek, Italian, French and German scholarly papers (well representing Runciman's wide-ranging influence as a European historian). Each offprint is inscribed by Runciman, the first extensively, "Anthony - a selection of off-prints - all that I can find - dusty and dirty - and the misprints uncorrected, (even the arch rendering of my name by the Italians) - from Steven, April 1959" (the Italians designate him "Steve Runciman"), and the rest more simply inscribed, "with best wishes SR", "Anthony Hobson from Steven Runciman", and "for Anthony from Steven". Anthony Hobson (1921-2014) was the director of Sotheby's and noted bibliophile. The nine offprints were sent together in a single envelope, preserved and included here. This is a valuable trove of Runciman pieces, acknowledged as already rare at the time by Runciman himself (they being "all that I can find").

        Ernest Hemingway signs and inscribes a copy of Green Hills of Africa to one of his sparring partners

      n.p., 1935. 8.5" x 6". "His signature and inscription, ""For Rita and Harry with much affection and wishing them all good fortune Ernest Hemingway Key West 1936"" on the half-title page of his second book of non-fiction, Green Hills of Africa (New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1935), [295 pp.], 8vo. Bound in green publisher's cloth and housed in a first edition dust jacket (with the original price of $2.75). Boards and spine toned at edges, some scattered foxing, pages slightly browned, marginal wear to dust jacket with some losses at top and spine.The recipient, Harry Ambrose Sylvester (1908-1993) was a short-story writer and novelist writing for Collier's, Esquire, and Commonweal. Sylvester met Hemingway in Key West in 1936 while on his honeymoon with his bride Rita Ryall Davis and the two quickly developed a close friendship, part of which revolved around their mutual love for boxing. Sylvester remarked in an interview that he had been a boxer at Notre Dame and the two had become sparring partners. When asked if he had ever been on the receiving end of the author's ""deadly punch,"" Sylvester replied, ""No, never came close. He was just too slow with his hands and feet... If you stayed close enough to him, he probably did [have a deadly punch]. Anyone who knew anything about boxing would not get that close to him. He was immensely strong, though not well coordinated. Just horsing around, you were aware how powerful he was."" (Denis Brian, The True Gen, 1988, 104). Green Hills of Africa was Hemingway's second non-fiction work which chronicles a month-long hunting trip in East Africa with his wife Pauline in December 1933, interspersed with musings on literature.

        THREE POEMS

      Hanover: Baker Library Press (Dartmouth), 1935. 1st edition, limited (1/125) numbered, hand tied heavy paper wraps, with printed label (as issued). Specially signed and inscribed by Frost on the title page. Published by The Daniel Oliver Associates of Dartmouth College, a group of Dartmouth undergraduate students interested in books and book collecting. The three poems had "never before been published in book form" (from the colophon). Among the most scarce of Frost's "A" titles, (Crane A18), copies are seldom seen in the market. Issued unsigned, and without a trade issue, the present copy is signed and inscribed by Frost "For Frank Stockman" who was a member of The Daniel Oliver Associates in 1935. Stockman likely played more than a minor role in the production and publication of the oversized chapbook, as this is the only copy we have been able to locate with an inscription by Frost to a Daniel Oliver member. Likewise, the present copy is housed in a special gold colored paper box, with Stockman's bibliographic notes written in his hand on the back cover of the box. Additionally, the box is enclosed in a large brown envelope (10 inches x 13 inches) with additional bibliographic notes in Stockman's hand. Laid in is a letter from the Chiswick Book Shop (dated September 27, 1951) addressed to Frank Stockman, offering to buy this book. Also laid in is a copy of "Fifty Years of Robert Frost: A Catalogue of the Exhibition held in Baker Library in the Autumn of 1943" (Dartmouth College Library, pp. 14). While OCLC locates several copies in institutional holdings, this is the first copy in our experience to surface on the market. Beautifully preserved, the present offering is in fine condition.

        Cupid's Pastime

      A complete set of artist's proofs, plus 6 unused proofs and several page proofs. 13 original copper engravings, 2 of which are signed by the artist, including a complete set of the artist's proofs for the 6 plates used in the published book. The collection includes 4 printings of the frontispiece, 2 versions of which are unused. The collection includes several page proofs, comprising 3 of the full page engravings, 2 impressions of the tail piece on different paper and two more sheets without engravings. All the proofs have the stamp of the artist's studio on the verso. Printed by A.A.M. Stols for J.B.W. Editions. 1935. An unique collection, all the more desirable as the book itself only existed in an edtion of 31 copies. Buckland Wright wrote in the colophon that the book was "a private experiment in illustration and typography by the engraver of the plates, who offers no other excuse of this publication". These are delicately sensuous copper engravings of nude figures in Arcadian landscapes with an underlying gentle erotic theme. In his memoir, Anthony Reid wrote : These were the themes which he loved best and which he best portrayed. The plates have timeless beauty, an absolute serenity of line and loveliness'. Reid A19, p.17.

        TORTILLA FLAT

      Viking Press, New York 1935 - C. 1935. Date of this printing not noted, but believed by some to be 1938. Gray cloth with blue rules and lettering. Dyed top edge. 316 pages. Black and white illustrations and vignettes. Identical to the Covici Friede edition, except that "The Viking Press" appears on the title page and on the spine. It also appears on the spine of the dustjacket, above a blacked-out patch covering the Covici Friede imprint. The rear flap also has The Viking Press and its address, below two blacked out lines, again, covering the Covici Friede imprint. The front flap states "second printing," and all four flap corners are clipped. No price shows. The book's spine is sunned, and there are a few slightly darkened areas on the front cover. Tight and unworn. Contents are clean and tight. The jacket also has a darkened spine, and several chips. A rather unusual edition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

"A variant issue of the fifth impression of September 1935 is bound in full blue crushed morocco, has marbled endpapers same design as those of Cape limited issue but of darker hues, gilt top edge with blue & white head and tail bands. At foot of spine [pub. device] replaces the words Jonathan Cape another issue same as above with following differences full maroon leather on the front cover two squares, one within the other with stars in corners of the inner square. Crossed sword emblem on front cover. Spine plain. T.e. gilt. Red & yellow head & tail bands. Marbled end papers. One of six copies given to Lawrence's pall bearers, specially bound" (O'Brien). While the leather and bands of this copy seem to match the latter issue, the blocking is evidently different. An attractive and intriguing variant, not noted by O'Brien. O'Brien A042.
