        PYLON

      1935. 3. 315p, cloth, light edge wear, vg in chipped dj. 1st edition. The Mardi- Gras season in New Orleans in February 1934 began with the dedication of the Shushan Airport on the shore of Lake Pontchartrain. The days after the dedication were filled with the celebrations in town and the excitement of the Pan-American Air Races at the airport. William Faulkner attended the air race and used it as a location and setting for his novel PYLON published in 1935. This is a first edition of PYLON and the accompanying correspondence relates to efforts of the air race sponsors to encourage attendance and support by aviation industries. Included is a personal letter from A.L. Shushan, President of the Board of Levee Commissioners to Herbert Maxon,PR chief of Goodrich Tire Co., describing the new airport and inviting Maxon to be a member of the show's Advisory Committee. Shushan was a political crony of Senator Huey Long and was depicted as Colonel H.I. Feinman, Chairman of the Sewage Board, in PYLON. On page 14 is: "This Feinman," Jiggs said. "He must be a big son of a bitch." "He's a son of a bitch all right," the driver said. "I guess you'd call him big too." Other correspondence, many letters on colorful air race letterhead with carbon copies of Maxon's replies are included. Maxon mentions that he might fly to New Orleans with Jimmy Doolittle who was working with Goodrich on the development of de-icing equipment. A folding letter to the aircraft industry opens to captioned photos of the airport and Mardi Gras scenes. A 14 page "Schedule of Events and Prizes" gives excellent details on rules and amounts of prizes. Also included are a folding brochure listing ticket prices and events, and a clipping of an article by columnist Arthur Brisbane.

        Pylon

      Harrison Smith & Robert Haas, New York 1935 - First Printing (February, 1935, on copyright page), in First Issue dust jacket (with correct titles listed on rear panel). 8vo: 315,[1]pp. Publisher's cobalt-blue cloth, spine and upper cover stamped in gilt within a horizontal black band, top edge stained black; pictorial dust jacket, priced $2.50. About Fine (flaking to gilt spine lettering), in a bright, about Fine jacket (spine head rubbed with miniscule loss). Provenance: from the collection (now housed at the University of Central Florida Libraries) of bibliophiles Walter and Dorothy Donnelly with their label on front paste down. Petersen A17.1a. Fargnoli, pp. 211-16. In the 1930s, Faulkner sought release from increasing personal and professional problems through flying lessons; he bought a plane, and his brothers also learned to fly. Eventually Faulkner gave the plane to his brother Dean—and was overcome by guilt when Dean died in a crash in the same year Faulkner published Pylon, which concerns the exploits of a wandering troupe of gypsy aviators. According to The Literary Encyclopedia, Pylon "has many failings, but did offer Faulkner a chance to try out some of the techniques he perfected in Absalom, Absalom!, which is widely considered his greatest achievement." In fact, Faulkner claims to have written Pylon to get away from writing Absalom (Fargnoli, p. 213). Fargnoli calls Pylon "Faulkner's most self-consciously modernist work" and points out the novel's references to both Joyce (in particular the Aeolis episode in Ulysses) and T. S. Eliot (the penultimate chapter of Pylon is entitled "Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock" and The Waste Land is evoked throughout). Basis for the 1958 film The Tarnished Angels, featuring Robert Stack, Rock Hudson and Dorothy Malone, about an airplane contest in New Orleans during Mardis Gras.

        Blinky Bill "Magic Action" Book

      Racine (Wisconsin): Whitman Publishing, 1935. Small quarto, three double-page colour pop-up plates; original stiff pictorial wrappers; some minor wear to spine, else very good. A rare, pirated copy of an old friend. A rare pop-up book featuring the ever-popular character Blinky Bill. This text is taken from the first Blinky Bill story, with all the associated images, and includes "magic action" pop-up interpretations of three of these. Such was the international appeal of Dorothy Wall's character that only two years after the appearance of the first {i Blinky Bill} story, this pop-up book was published in America. Ironically this pirated publication, which never appeared in Australia, was protected by copyright and two separate patents!

        Untitled Fantasy Landscape Original Art

      Unpublished Book. Near Fine. No Binding. Signed by Illustrator(s). Untitled fantasy landscape art, depicting a man riding a giant mouse along the shore of a lake which is surrounded by rocky hills, at twilight. Bok would often incorporate a drawing of a mouse with his signature. This dark landscape with a man (Bok himself?) riding a mouse into the twilight must have had deep personal significance for the artist. This work shows the heavy influence that Maxfield Parrish had on Bok, especially on his early work. This maginficent color piece looks like it may be egg tempera on board. It certainly has the luminosity of a work by Parrish. SIGNED along bottom edge, "Hans Bok / 1935." Image size: approximately 29 1/4 X 19 1/4 inches. Frame size: approximately 34 X 24 inches. The board shows wrinkling and restoration work, still one of the most impressive and large Bok original paintings we have seen. In a fine gilt frame..

        Butterfield 8

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company. (1935). First. First edition. Short tear at the foot and a small neat repair to the paper over the front hinge, a very good copy in a good only, but presentable dustwrapper with some chipping, and repairs. Inscribed by the author to fellow novelist Ben Ames Williams: "To Ben Williams Cordially John O'Hara." The author's third book and second novel, and by all accounts one of his best. 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, and seldom found inscribed, especially with a nice association. .

        [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.

"The last time I saw Julian was at Clive's, two days before he went to Spain.I was determined not to think about the risks, because, subconsciously I was sure he would be killed; that is I had a couchant unexpressed certainty, from Thoby's death I think; a legacy of pessimism, which I have decided never to analyze".

The book itself is clean and bright with no prior owner markings, the front hinge just a bit loose, some rubbing (1/16") to the spine ends and tips, but the covers themselves are crisp with very bright gilt. A favorite and relatively scarce Rackham book (1935 was still during the depression and the price of 21/- (the dust jacket is not price clipped) was above the other trade editions of his books at the time (some as low as 5/-, many others at 15/-, and even the leather gift editions were only 21/5 or 25/-. Today, of course, both Poe and Rackham are highly collectable, and copies of the UK Harrap edition in their dust jackets are very scarce.

        ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH "GIPSY DANCERS."

      [Location: Granada, Spain, printed New York]. 25 May 1935.. Original sepia-tone borderless silver print. 25 x 16.5 cm (9.75 x 6.5 inches). Fine. A well-executed photograph by Van Vechten of a subject close to his heart and in one of his areas of greatest expertise: Spanish dancing. The print bears his blindstamp, and on the verso his credit stamp. It is captioned in ink on the verso, in his hand: "Gipsy Dancers, in front of the Gipsy Caves El Albaicin - The Sacromonte" and is dated and bears his negative number. Beginning with THE MUSIC OF SPAIN (1918), Van Vechten did much to introduce the subject, particularly Spanish dance, to readers in the U.S. and U.K. He photographed and promoted some of its practitioners when they toured in the U.S., but this photograph taken in situ is particularly choice.

        Lady De Rothschild and Her Daughters 1821-1931

      John Murray, London 1935 - 354 pages. pages. Index. Black and white plates. Multi-panel fold-out family tree at back. "Light is thrown from a fresh angle on Disraeli and his erratic wife, as well as on Thackeray, all three friends of the family. There are glimpses of Louis Napoleon and the disturbances of 1848 and of 1870, of the Austrian Court in 1873, and of three generations of our own royal family. In their letters and conversations we find characteristic traits of Mr. Gladstone, Lord Rosebery, and their Liberal supporters, and of Burne-Jones and Meredith, and other artists and writers. The Rothschild family in its earlier days appeals to the imagination by its financial power, which brought it into contact with those who ruled the destinies of Europe and by its munificence; while its Judaism and the peculiar features of its solidarity make the family history interesting and, in some ways, unique." - from Preface. Considerable wear and staining to blue cloth exterior. Gift greetings inside front board. Prior owner's name atop front free endpaper. Binding tender but intact. A worthy reference copy of this important work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

She writes: "I think they are excellent and amusing to have. I am going to have some copies made and will send one to the Countess Orlowski, who was always much interested in the Aiken verses. I was pleased to hear you had such an interesting trip with Mr. Smith [i.e., the author]. He is certainly a wonderful companion. Tom joins me in thanking you for your kind expressions of sympathy in our loss, and also in sending very kind regards to you."
