        Forgers! Future President Harry Truman and his future Treasury Secretary John W. Snyder, each ambidextrous, sign their own AND each otherâ??s signatures!

      Music Program Card Signed in pencil on verso, 4.5â? x 8â?. Music program, [St. Louis. Missouri], November 24, 1935. Punch hole in upper right, mid-horizontal fold. Fine condition. Printed Card â??Music Program / Benjamin L. Raderâ??s String Orchestra / Dave Clayton, Tenor Soloist.â? Sunday November 24, 1935. Main Dining Room 6:00 to 8:00 P.M. Listed are 12 titles including works by Schubert, Saint-Saens, and Bizet, and vocals such as â??Lovely To Look Atâ? by Kern. Ben Rader was a popular dance and theatre orchestra director in St. Louis from the 1920s to the 1950s. John W. Snyderâ??s close friendship with Harry S. Truman began in 1928 when Truman was a Jackson County Judge. They served together in the U.S. Army Reserves after World War I. When Lt. Col. Truman was promoted to Colonel, Major Snyder was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel of Col. Trumanâ??s Missouri Regiment, the 381st Field Artillery, 102nd Division. In 1931, Snyder entered government service, working in the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency in the â??insolvency division.â? He monitored eight banks in the St. Louis area. Presiding Judge of the Jackson (Missouri) County Court, Truman was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1934. Evidently, Missouri Senator Harry S. Truman and his friend, banker John W. Snyder (and probably their wives), were listening to Ben Raderâ??s orchestra in St. Louis in 1935 and decided to see if each could sign the otherâ??s name. The first of six â??signaturesâ? was signed by Snyder â??John W Snyder.â? Truman then signed Snyderâ??s name and then signed his own name â??Harry S Trumanâ? (signatures 2 and 3). Snyder then signed Trumanâ??s name (signature 4). Truman may have then told his friend that heâ??d like to try again, so Snyder signed â??John W. Snyderâ? again (signature 5) and Truman once again signed Snyderâ??s name (signature 6).

        A CLERGYMAN’S DAUGHTER

      London: Victor Gollancz. 1935. First edition, first printing. UNCORRECTED PROOF COPY. Original printed card wrappers, in proof dustwrapper. An excellent very good copy, the covers clean, with the manuscript addition of ?"Uncorrected?" above the printed ?"proof copy?" statement on upper wrapper. The text is clean and bright throughout. Complete with the good chipped and browned proof dustwrapper, which is identical to that of the published version in all but the rear panel. Any of Orwell's novels are rare in proof form, and those retaining their original proof state dustwrapper are exceptionally so. Few underwent such revision from the submitted manuscript to the published book as A Clergyman's Daughter. Victor Gollancz was unwilling to risk legal action for libel by publishing Orwell's original typescript. His objections related mainly to the girls?' school described in Chapter IV, which strikes a deal to offer an unqualified Dorothy Hare a job in exhange for cash and then reprimands her for ?'developing the children?'s minds?' and insist ?'the fees come first.?' Orwell taught at a boys?' private school called The Hawthorns in Hayes in Middlelex in 1932 run on similarly commercial lines and considered by Orwell ?'a foul place?'. (See item XX in this catalogue). Victor Gollancz insisted that Orwell tone down some of the more damning references. In his letter to Gollancz dated 17th December 1934, Orwell returns the manuscript ?'altered in accordance with your suggestions?', in the hope that Gollancz would now publish it. They would seem to have been satisfied with the changes, though several differences still remained here at proof stage, which were later changed by Orwell in the published novel. As the manuscript no longer exists, this can be considered the earliest state of the novel extant.

        The Green Shadow

      New York: Hartney Press. 1935. First. First edition. Fine in a lightly worn, near fine and attractive dustwrapper designed by Charles B. Gilbert with a few short tears and some rubbing. The jacket has an unusual design with the tops and bottoms of the flaps extended, folded inward and glued (as issued) to make pockets that hold the jacket on. Very hardboiled private eye novel. The Chicago-born author was a newspaper journalist who wrote a column on rackets and racketeering, and later became a successful screenwriter. Among his produced scripts were The Great John L., The Angel and the Bad Man, Sands of Iwo Jima, Flying Leathernecks, Hondo, The Alamo, and Donovan's Reef. This particular novel was the basis for the fast-paced and very entertaining 1936 Charles Vidor film Muss 'em Up, with Preston Foster as detective "Tip" O'Neil. .
