        Ginger - May, 1935 Vol. 1, Number 1. Vintage American Pin-up pulp Erotica; Georges (George) Quintana Cover.

      Edmar Publishing Company, New York 1935 - New York: Edmar Publishing Co., 1935; volume 1, no. 1. 10 1/4" x 7 7/8"; pictorial wrappers; 58 pp. Nude photographs; over-18 purchase only. NOTE that cover and cover verso are deemed by the publisher, in this format, as being pages 1 & 2. High grade; precious little keeps this out of near fine at pulp grading standards - as is, very good plus. Pulp-paper contents are only lightly age toned, primarily in the margins, and are quite supple. Spine is roughened in spots but is complete. Bright, tight and striking. See scans. First issue of a famed Pin-up pulp "Good Girl" light erotica title, with what is certainly one of the all-time classic "Good Girl" illustrations, a scarce one by the somewhat mysterious Georges (George) Quintana, and on which in this particular case even supersedes the sometimes era-specific clothes, pose, and makeup of many great Quintana/Bolles/Driben/Bergey "Good Girl" covers; this precursor to Marilyn Monroe and post-cursor to Jean Harlowe (see scan) is a babe in any era. Contents include a black & white nude photographic section and a number of b&w "good girl" line drawings as illustrations of the several included pieces of soft-erotica pulp fiction. These illustrations were clearly by a number of different artists, all in "Good Girl" interpretations, and all uncredited. A dozen stories and articles in the same vein - not to mention ads for a variety of on-topic products - complete the formula. A fascinating and very scarce title and number from a uniquely American pulp genre, in rather spectacular condition, with a nearly peerless Good Girl cover. Purchaser must be over 18 years of age, please, due to the nude photographic section (though it is actually rather soft by today's standards). LG-1 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Original typescript of a short article, "Early American Angling" with two ink corrections, and the typed initials "E. V.C." at the bottom

      N.p, n.d. [ca. 1935] - A brief but interesting survey of fly fishing in the 1840s along the eastern seaboard from Boston to Philadelphia. Connett notes a number of specific locations and individuals, and ends, "We must remember that those were the days before Brown Trout or Rainbows were found in our eastern streams. I have always felt that the introduction of Brown Trout provided just the needed incentive for the introduction of the dry fly to this country, as I have always found them to be the prime surface feeders of the trout family. But, of course, these oldtimers did some surface fishing with the many dropper flies --sometimes as many as three!--which they played on the surface." A LIVELY AND INFORMATIVE ARTICLE One page, about 500 words, 11 x 8 1/2 inches. A few marginal tears without loss, else fine. From the collection of Eugene V.

Of Wolfe, Sinclair Lewis, the first American to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, said of Wolfe: "He may have a chance to be the greatest American writer.... In fact I don't see why he should not be one of the greatest world writers." Sadly, Wolfe died at age 37 and thus had the shortest writing career of any major novelist during his time, lasting only about half as long as did the writing careers of Fitzgerald, Hemingway, and Faulkner. Upon Wolfe's death, Faulkner declared that Wolfe may have had the best talent of their generation. A Very Good + copy of the debut collection of short stories from one of the most important writers of modern American Literature who some compared to Walt Whitman. Due to Wolfe's untimely early death, signed copies of this debut work are uncommon. A Very Good + copy of a notable debut from one of America's internationally-acclaimed and most notable authors.

O'Hara's laconic journalistic style was particularly effective in illuminating the life of the middle-class American, a mantle he seems to have inherited from Sinclair Lewis. Filmed in 1960 with Oscar-winner Elizabeth Taylor, Laurence Harvey, Eddie Fisher and Dina Merrill. One of the author's best known novels. .
