      - Cocteau, Jean. Hand Written Letter from Cocteau, dated April 1935. The letter concerns a letter from Madame Mendes, wife of Catulle Mendes, creator of "La Revue Fantasiste". The couple were prominent in the 1930's french artistic scene and their daughters were painted by Renoir. Addressed to "Mon Cher Ami", he states he is returning a letter from Mme. Mendes without opening it. He states he wrote the article with love and respect, and if it contains inaccuracies, it's that he tries to paint fast and through all sorts of fog. The ensemble is correct. He also states that when he knew Mendes, he was no longer living at home, and spoke of his wife without sweetness. He says he liked and admired her, and he does not change. Signed Jean Cocteau, with the characteristic 5 pointed star below. COCTEAU, JEAN (1889-1963). French poet, novelist, playwright, visual artist, and film director. Considered one of the most creative, diversified artists of the twentieth century. [Attributes: Signed Copy; 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]. 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. Connett, III, proprietor of The Derrydale Press . 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

        [Broadside]: !! Southern Welterweight Title Bout !! Last fight - 10 Rounds - of 1935 season. Stiffie Williams, Carterville, Ga. 146 lbs. Southern Welter Champion [vs.] Gene "Portion" Clark, Fayetteville, Tenn. 144 lbs. The Challenger

      Fayetteville, Tenn.: Bill & Berry's Backyard Arena. 1935. First. Four copies of this broadside, each identical except printed on different colors of paper stock (beige, pink, salmon, pale green). Each is 9" x 12". Age-toning and tiny nicks or tears; the beige example has a fairly large dampstain, the others are near fine. Apparently a bout of some consequence, the broadside states: "It is of especial interest that the PRIZED TITLE BELT held by Stiffie Williams will be at STAKE during the fight. The belt now on display downtown in the PLEASE-U BARBER SHOP window will go to the WINNER!!" Of some additional interest is the undercard: "The promoters are making this entire program an all star affair. They are bringing one of the most famous Southern Negro Middleweight Boxers, THE DREADED KID SHORTY STARR of Rome, Ga. to meet Fayetteville's own great Negro Middleweight TIGER HARRIS." We do not know who won this fistic fiesta, but do know that Gene "Portion" Clark was murdered - shot between the eyes - in Huntsville in 1940.

        Soil Survey of Polk County, Texas. Series 1903, Number 36.

      Washington, D. C.: U. S. Government Printing Office, 1935. - 8vo., (9 x 6 inches). Large fine folding chromolithographed "Soil Map: Polk County Texas" (one or two new folds), 1 in-text map. Original publisher's printed wrappers, with map of Texas on rear cover (small chip from upper corner of rear wrapper, lightly browned). Provenance: Contemporary manuscript ownership inscription to front cover. First edition. With a very large folding map in full color showing the different types of soil in Polk County, Texas. "Creation of the Division of Agricultural Soils in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) in 1894 marked the beginning of a national commitment to soil science and soil survey activities. By 1899, soil surveyors had commenced field investigations for the first USDA soil surveys; one century later, soil surveys have been published for most counties in the United States. The surveys - inventories consisting of narrative descriptions, tables, and maps - include a wealth of interpretive information about soil characteristics and properties and about their limitations and potentials. These interpretations of how soils respond to different uses assist land users in making appropriate decisions. And while Congress and the federal government have supported the soil survey effort to help guide agricultural development, surveys have side application in a variety of environmental and land management uses. The development of the national soil survey program grew out of the intellectual curiosity and personal ambition of two men in particular, Charles W. Dabney, Jr. and Milton Whitney. But it was research at state agricultural experiment stations that created the favorable climate for Dabney's and Whitney's successes. This state-level research grew from a desire by state agricultural leaders to understand their soils and the relationship of the characteristics of those soils to plant growth. Ultimately, they believed, knowledge would contribute to a healthy agricultural economy" (Helms, ed., p. 1). Douglas Helms, et al., eds., "Profiles in the History of the U.S. Soil Survey."

        Now, Howard, no fooling with the toys.

      c. 1935 - Sheet size: 240 × 267 mm. Artists' agency ticket of R. P. Gossop Limited on verso. Pen and ink on wove paper. A lady shopper in a fur coat striding into a toy shop smirks over her shoulder at her husband, who is collapsing beneath the weight of her Christmas shopping. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

Very good, with some light rubbing to the corners, light vertical crease and minor toning to the spine, spine head lightly rubbed and worn, fresh boards, a hint of minor offsetting to the endpapers, bright and clean interior. Bruccoli A17.I.a. Taps at Reveille is Fitzgerald's fourth collection of short stories and the last book published during his lifetime.

The collection contains eighteen stories, including: "Crazy Sunday," "A Woman with a Past," "The Last of the Belles," and "Babylon Revisited." According to the publisher, Fitzgerald chose his best short stories for this collection. These selections are full of poignant and amusing stories of youth, gaiety and adolescent error. "Babylon Revisited" is probably the most mature story of the collection, with its rueful contemplation of the Jazz Age in Paris and its follies. (Edith H. Walton, The New York Times).. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Going Southward

      [No place -Paris?: Frederic Prokosch]. 1935. First. First edition. Batik wrappers with silver foil printed label. 24mo. A little rubbed, near fine in unprinted and possibly original acetate dustwrapper. Out of a total edition of 33 copies, this copy is unnumbered and designated by the author by hand as a "Special Copy on Cherry Vellum" paper. Signed by the author. A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books." Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions," which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book, indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. Rare. Of the 33 copies, OCLC locates four copies in institutions. .

        Uber die Natur der Genmutation und der Genstruktur

      1935. <p>Timofeeff-Ressovsky, Nikolai Vladimirovich (1900-1981), K. G. Zimmer and Max Delbruck (1906-81). Ueber die Natur der Genmutation und der Genstruktur. Offprint from Nachr. Ges. Wiss. Gottingen, math-fis. Kl., Fachgr. 6, 1 (1935). 8vo. [189]-245pp. Berlin: Weidmannsche Buchhandlung, 1935. 253 x 178 mm. Original green printed wrappers. Stamp on upper wrapper but fine and unopened. </p> First Separate Edition. Garrison-Morton 254.1. One of the key conceptual papers in the early history of molecular biology. This paper represented the debut in genetics of the physicist Max Delbruck, a student and lifelong friend of Niels Bohr.</p><p> Delbruck turned from quantum physics to biology after being inspired by Niels Bohr&#39;s speculations, in his 1935 lecture "Light and life," about the application of quantum mechanics to problems in biology. Delbruck won a share of the Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine in 1969 for his discoveries concerning the replication mechanism and the genetic structure of viruses. </p><p> "Ueber die Natur der Genmutation und der Genstruktur" (often referred to as "the green paper" after the color of its wrappers, or the "Dreimanner" paper after the number of its authors) is divided into four sections. The first, by Timofeeff-Ressovsky, describes the mutagenic effects of x-rays and gamma rays on Drosophila melanogaster; the second part, by Zimmer, analyzes Timofeeff-Ressovsky&#39;s results theoretically. The third and most remarkable section, by Delbruck, puts forth a model of genetic mutation based on atomic physics that "shows the maturity, judgment and breadth of knowledge of someone who had been in the field for years . . . its carefully worded predictions have stood the test of time" (Perutz, p. 557). </p><p> The three authors of the paper "concluded that a mutation is a molecular rearrangement within a particular molecule, and the gene a union of atoms with which a mutation, in the sense of a molecular rearrangement or dissociation of bonds, can occur. The actual calculations of the size of the gene, deduced from calculations on the assumption of a spherical target, were not cogent, as Delbruck wryly admitted in his Nobel Prize lecture, but the entire approach to the problem of mutation and the gene adopted by the three collaborators was highly stimulating to other investigators" (DSB [suppl.]).</p><p> The Timofeeff-Zimmer-Delbruck paper provided much of the material for Erwin Schrodinger&#39;s book What is Life? (1944), a work that takes a "naive physicist&#39;s" approach to the problems of heredity and variation; it is often cited as having inspired Watson, Crick, Wilkins and others to focus their careers on the problems of molecular biology.</p><p> The relationship between Schrodinger&#39;s book and the Timofeeff-Zimmer-Delbruck paper is examined in detail in Max Perutz&#39;s 1987 paper "Physics and the riddle of life," which points out, among other things, that the two most important chapters in Schrodinger&#39;s book were paraphrased from "Ueber die Natur der Genmutation und der Genstruktur." </p><p>"In retrospect, the chief merit of What is Life? is its popularization of the Timofeeff, Zimmer and Delbruck paper that would otherwise have remained unknown outside the circles of geneticists and radiation biologists" (Perutz, p. 558). Perutz, "Physics and the riddle of life," Nature 326 (1987): 555-559. </p>

        The 39 Steps (Original Pressbook for the 1935 film)

      London: Gaumont. 1935. Original pressbook, American issue with American ads distributed in New York by the Gaumont Picture Corporation of America for the classic 1935 film, based on the 1915 novel by John Buchan. Card wrappers with a color lithograph design, saddle stitched, 12" x 18". 20pp. Faint horizontal fold as issued. Some minute nicking at the edges, pages slightly toned, but bright and very near fine. The 39 Steps is often considered Hitchcock&#39;s first masterpiece in a career noted for several. His adaptation of Buchan&#39;s novel proved (as usual) to be an improvement on the source material, adding two female characters and removing a couple of serious implausibilities. Another aspect of inestimable importance is that Hitchcock found in this film a theme that would become his favorite: an innocent man on the run, clever and resourceful, but surrounded by a conspiracy neither he nor the audience understands. A rare and blazingly beautiful artifact from one of the foundational espionage thrillers of the 20th Century. .

        Taps at Reveille

      New York: Charles Scribner&#39;s Sons, 1935 First edition, first printing, second state. Inscribed and signed by the author in black ink on front endpaper: "For Jim Hurley / adhesive tape expert / (&#39;May every tape- / writer ribbon prove / to be an adhesive / tape&#39; Dorothy Dix) / From his friend / F Scott Fitzgerald / Ashville 1936". Bound in the publisher&#39;s original dark blue cloth. A near fine copy, with light wear to the spine ends, light rubbing to the corners, a hint of spotting on the page edges and the front and back hinges. A very attractive copy. Fitzgerald inscribed this copy of Taps at Reveille to his friend James B. Hurley, a clerk at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, North Carolina, a resort hotel where the author resided from 1935 - 1936. Fitzgerald first traveled to Asheville on an extended visit due to personal health concerns about his lungs and stayed after he moved his wife Zelda to the Highland Hospital at Asheville. Hurley worked for Fitzgerald for nine months after applying to a classified advertisement for a typist. He typed Fitzgerald&#39;s manuscripts, manually manipulating his typewriter to create a triple-space between lines, Fitzgerald&#39;s preferred layout for editing. Additionally, Fitzgerald had Hurley assist with his finances, including contacting The Saturday Evening Post for payments when Fitzgerald&#39;s checking account was running low. When the two parted ways, Fitzgerald bequeathed Hurley with two manuscripts for his short stories and three signed novels, including this one. Bruccoli and Baughman, 124. Taps at Reveille is Fitzgerald&#39;s fourth collection of short stories and the last book published during his lifetime, one year after Tender is the Night. The collection contains eighteen stories, including: "Crazy Sunday," "A Woman with a Past," The Last of the Belles," and "Babylon Revisited." According to the publisher, Fitzgerald chose his best short stories for this collection, ones full of poignant and amusing stories of youth, gaiety, and adolescent error. "Babylon Revisited" is perhaps the best-known; it is a rueful contemplation of the Jazz Age in Paris and its follies (Edith H. Walton, New York Times).. Inscribed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Fine.
