        Seven Pillars of Wisdom, with a Lawrence of Arabia Memorial leaflet

      London: Jonathan Cape Ltd., 1935. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good . This is the British first edition, first printing in dust jacket, accompanied by a Lawrence of Arabia Memorial leaflet. Seven Pillars of Wisdom is the story of T.E. Lawrence's (1888-1935) remarkable odyssey as instigator, organizer, hero, and tragic figure of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, which he began as an eccentric junior intelligence officer and ended as "Lawrence of Arabia." This time defined Lawrence with indelible experience and celebrity, which he would spend the rest of his famously short life struggling to reconcile and reject, to recount and repress. Lawrence famously resisted publication of his masterwork for the general public during his lifetime. The saga is remarkable. He nearly completed a massive first draft in 1919, only to famously lose it when his briefcase was mislaid at a train station. This first draft was never recovered. At a fever pitch, Lawrence wrote a new 400,000 word draft in 1920. This punishing burst of writing was followed by an equally brutal process of editing by Lawrence. In 1922, a 335,000 word version was carefully circulated to select friends and literary critics - the famous "Oxford Text". George Bernard Shaw called it "a masterpiece". Nonetheless, Lawrence was unready to see it distributed to the public. Finally, in 1926, a further edited 250,000 word "Subscribers' Edition" was produced by Lawrence - but fewer than 200 copies were made, each lavishly and uniquely bound. The process cost Lawrence far more than he made in subscriptions. To recover the loss, Lawrence finally authorized an edition for the general public - but one even further abridged and entitled "Revolt in the Desert". It was only in the summer of 1935, in the weeks following Lawrence's death, that the text of the Subscribers' Edition was finally published for circulation to the general public in the form of a British first trade edition. Here is the first British trade edition, first printing, a near fine copy in a very good dust jacket. The brown cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with bright spine and front cover gilt. We note only trivial shelf wear to the bottom edge and minor wrinkling at the spine ends. The contents remain bright and clean with no previous ownership marks. Light spotting appears confined to the untrimmed fore edges and just a few scattered spots to the endsheets. The dust jacket is complete, retaining the original front flap price and suffering no losses or spine toning. We note moderate overall soiling, with a 2.5 inch diameter ring stain to the rear face, as well as some wrinkling and short closed tears at the spine head, and some wrinkling at the lower front corner. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Laid in the book we find, and include with the book, a pristine copy of the "Lawrence of Arabia Memorial" leaflet. This single-fold leaflet was produced to raise funds for the T.E. Lawrence Memorial in St. Paul's Cathedral, as well as additional commemorations "some of which would be helpful to young people." The leaflet was signed by seven prominent "friends of Lawrence". "The undersigned friends of Lawrence, who know what he meant to his generation, approve these proposals and submit them to the public." Winston Churchill is listed among these seven, the balance being F.M. Allenby, Herbert Baker, Lionel Curtis, Augustus John, George Bernard Shaw, and Evelyn Wrench.

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom

      New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1935. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Fine/Very good . This is an immaculate first U.S. edition in the first state dust jacket and original publisher's slipcase. Seven Pillars of Wisdom is the story of T.E. Lawrence's (1888-1935) remarkable odyssey as instigator, organizer, hero, and tragic figure of the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Empire during the First World War, which he began as an eccentric junior intelligence officer and ended as "Lawrence of Arabia." This time defined Lawrence with indelible experience and celebrity, which he would spend the rest of his famously short life struggling to reconcile and reject, to recount and repress.

It was only after Lawrence's death in 1935 that the text of the Subscribers' Edition was finally published for circulation to the general public in the form of British and U.S. first trade editions. Here is the U.S. first edition, first printing, truly fine in a very good first state dust jacket and housed in the scarce original publisher's slipcase. The volume itself is as good a copy as we have seen. The khaki cloth binding is flawless, with no discernible wear. The contents are beautifully bright with no previous ownership marks, no spotting, immaculate page edges, and perfect topstain. Searching for any signs of age or flaws, we can note only some transfer browning to the endpapers from the pastedown glue. The dust jacket is unclipped, retaining the original $5.00 front flap price. O'Brien reports three states of the first edition dust jacket. This is the first state, with a blank rear face. The dust jacket is substantially complete, with some minor chipping and wear along the upper edge, modest spine toning, and light soiling. The dust jacket is now protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. The publisher's slipcase is in quite good condition, particularly given the fact that these thin cardboard slipcases were very fragile and few appear to have survived. This example remains complete and in one piece. A few seam splits are starting, but all seams remain attached and there is only light wear to a few slipcase corners. The pasted paper portrait panel on the front face remains clean and unchipped. Bibliographic reference: O'Brien A054

        Nor was I left without admonitions.

      c. 1935 - Sheet size: 197 × 290 mm. With printed label "Please acknowledge these illustrations as follows: Nicolas Bentley Drew the Pictures". Pen and brush in ink on wove paper. A confident woman, hands on hips, surrounded by three women giving her advice. 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.

        Les campagnes navales de Mohammed Aly et d'Ibrahim.

      Imprimerie Nationale,, Paris, 1935 - 2 Bde. Paris, Imprimerie Nationale, 1935. 4°. (2) Bl., VI, 489 S.; 305 S. Mit 2 gefalt. Karten ("Comprenant le pays de Nedjd ou Arabie Centrale" und "Campagne navale de Juillet à Décembre 1832"), 1 Portrait-Tafel und 170 num. Tfln. Schwarze Ganzmaroquinbände über 5 erhabenen Bünden, mit zweifacher Goldfilete auf den Decken und vier der sechs Rückenfelder, Steh- und reicher Innenkantenvergoldung (Signiert: Zaehnsdorf, London). Lavishly illustrated Monograph on "the Founder of Modern Egypt". - Hervorragendes Exemplar dieser reich illustrierten Monographie über die herausragenden militärischen Fähigkeiten Muhammed Ali Pashas (1769-1848), "Begründer des modernen Aegyptens" und Gründer der königlichen Khediwen-Dynastie. Geschrieben wurde das zweibändige Werk auf Wunsch des ersten ägyptischen Königs Fouad von dem französischen Vize-Admiral G. Durand-Viel (1875-1959). Ursprünglich albanischer Herkunft, kam Muhammed Ali als Angehöriger der türkischen Armee 1799 nach Aegypten. Bereits 1803 wurde er zum Titular-Gouverneur von Djidda ernannt, im April 1806 erfolgte Alis Einsetzung als Vize-König von Aegypten. Die militärischen Erfolge der ägyptischen Truppen sowie seiner List (er lies unter einem Vorwand alle Fürsten der Umgebung, es waren um die 1200 Herscher, zur Hochzeit seines Sohnen Ibrahim kommen, schloss die Zitadellen bei Kairo und schlachtete alle ab in einer Nacht) erhöhten sein Ansehen bedeutend in ganz Arabien und im Vorderen Orient. Erstmals erachtete die europäische Politik Aegypten als wichtigen politischen Faktor. Die Bedeutung stieg noch durch Alis Expeditionen nach dem Süden und Syrien. Eine bedeutende Phase in Muhammed Ali Paschas Karriere wurde schliesslich auch seine Mitwirkung bei der militiärischen Unterdrückung des griechischen Aufstands durch die Türken. Sein grausamer Sohn Ibrahim, brannte auf der Peloponnes alles nieder und vergiftete alles Wasser. - Ein frisches und sehr dekorativ gebundenes Exemplar. An excellent copy in a decorative morocco binding of this lavishly illustrated monograph on the dynasty of Mohammed Ali Pasha (1769-1848), written by the French Vice-Admiral G. Durand-Viel (1875-1959) in commission of King Fouad of Egypt. Mohammed Ali, an Albanian lieutenant in the Ottoman army came to Egypt in 1799. The Ottomans elevate him to khedive or viceroy of Egypt 1806. Although Mohammed Ali was nominally a representative of the Ottoman Sultan he was for all intents and purposes an absolute ruler. He was dedicated to the modern development of Egypt, building factories, railways and canals, bringing in European architects and technicians to create a modern state. Ali was also an ambitious expansionist whose armies extended his power over Syria, Sudan, Greece and the Arabian Peninsula until by 1839 he controlled a large portion of the Ottoman Empire. - Full green morocco binding, with double gilt dentelles around sides and spine panels, gilt inside dentelles and top edges gilt (by Zaehensdorf, London).

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom. A Triumph

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1935. Large octavo, with 54 illustrations including frontispiece, 4 folding maps, some minor foxing to endpapers otherwise crisp; very good, in three-quarter brown crushed morocco, spine with raised bands, gilt. An attractive copy of the first trade edition of T.E. Lawrence's autobiographical account of his experiences in the Middle East. Lawrence was one of the British officers sent from Syria to help the Sherif of Mecca in the Arab revolt against the Ottoman Turks in World War 1. The first printed edition of 1926 was a limited run for private circulation and then in 1927 a shortened version was printed with the title Revolt in the Desert. This 1935 edition was published the year after Lawrence's death. The 54 illustrations are a selection of black & white reproductions from the 1926 edition. They come from a variety of different work including photographs, works in oil, pastel, charcoal, pen and wash. 31 of the illustrations are by Eric Kennington (1888-1960). Lawrence had met Kennington in 1920 on tour through London contemporary art shows while searching for material to use for the illustrations in his book. Kennington, who had served on the Western Front, was already established as a World War 1 artist. Lawrence approached Kennington for advice and after Kennington read the book he travelled to the Middle East at his own expense to return with a series of pastel portraits that he exhibited in Leicester Galleries in London before publishing in the book. Some of the works in this series are now held in the Tate Modern. A very good copy of Lawrence's epic story described by Winston Churchill as "ranking with the greatest books written in the English language

        Mutiny on the Bounty Glass Cinema Advertising Slide

      New York: National Studios, no date but, 1935. Glass slide, 83 x 100 mm., coloured transfer; very good in the original card mount. A Thousand Hours of Hell For One Moment of Love! A fantastic reminder that while scholars and historians have argued for centuries about the true motives of the Bounty mutiny, that no such doubts troubled the producers at MGM when they released their seminal film starring Charles Laughton and Clark Gable in 1935. These coloured glass slides are fragile and thus rare survivals. They were used in cinemas as advertising slides for coming attractions, and this particular one, with its prominent positioning of the Tahitian woman with just a bare silhouette of the boat in the background, is a reminder of precisely just how "exotic" the Pacific setting was thought to be. The tagline for the movie posters was just as explicit: "A Thousand Hours of Hell For One Moment of Love!" Although it is not possible to be certain, the figure may be based on the Hawaiian-born actor Mamo Clark, who played Gable's love-interest in the film.

        Les campagnes navales de Mohammed Aly et d'Ibrahim.

      Paris, Imprimerie Nationale, 1935.. 2 Bde. 4°. (2) Bl., VI, 489 S.; 305 S. Mit 2 gefalt. Karten ("Comprenant le pays de Nedjd ou Arabie Centrale" und "Campagne navale de Juillet a Decembre 1832"), 1 Portrait-Tafel und 170 num. Tfln. Schwarze Ganzmaroquinbände über 5 erhabenen Bünden, mit zweifacher Goldfilete auf den Decken und vier der sechs Rückenfelder, Steh- und reicher Innenkantenvergoldung (Signiert: Zaehnsdorf, London).. Lavishly illustrated Monograph on "the Founder of Modern Egypt". - Hervorragendes Exemplar dieser reich illustrierten Monographie über die herausragenden militärischen Fähigkeiten Muhammed Ali Pashas (1769-1848), "Begründer des modernen Aegyptens" und Gründer der königlichen Khediwen-Dynastie. Geschrieben wurde das zweibändige Werk auf Wunsch des ersten ägyptischen Königs Fouad von dem französischen Vize-Admiral G. Durand-Viel (1875-1959). Ursprünglich albanischer Herkunft, kam Muhammed Ali als Angehöriger der türkischen Armee 1799 nach Aegypten. Bereits 1803 wurde er zum Titular-Gouverneur von Djidda ernannt, im April 1806 erfolgte Alis Einsetzung als Vize-König von Aegypten. Die militärischen Erfolge der ägyptischen Truppen sowie seiner List (er lies unter einem Vorwand alle Fürsten der Umgebung, es waren um die 1200 Herscher, zur Hochzeit seines Sohnen Ibrahim kommen, schloss die Zitadellen bei Kairo und schlachtete alle ab in einer Nacht) erhöhten sein Ansehen bedeutend in ganz Arabien und im Vorderen Orient. Erstmals erachtete die europäische Politik Aegypten als wichtigen politischen Faktor. Die Bedeutung stieg noch durch Alis Expeditionen nach dem Süden und Syrien. Eine bedeutende Phase in Muhammed Ali Paschas Karriere wurde schliesslich auch seine Mitwirkung bei der militiärischen Unterdrückung des griechischen Aufstands durch die Türken. Sein grausamer Sohn Ibrahim, brannte auf der Peloponnes alles nieder und vergiftete alles Wasser. - Ein frisches und sehr dekorativ gebundenes Exemplar. An excellent copy in a decorative morocco binding of this lavishly illustrated monograph on the dynasty of Mohammed Ali Pasha (1769-1848), written by the French Vice-Admiral G. Durand-Viel (1875-1959) in commission of King Fouad of Egypt. Mohammed Ali, an Albanian lieutenant in the Ottoman army came to Egypt in 1799. The Ottomans elevate him to khedive or viceroy of Egypt 1806. Although Mohammed Ali was nominally a representative of the Ottoman Sultan he was for all intents and purposes an absolute ruler. He was dedicated to the modern development of Egypt, building factories, railways and canals, bringing in European architects and technicians to create a modern state. Ali was also an ambitious expansionist whose armies extended his power over Syria, Sudan, Greece and the Arabian Peninsula until by 1839 he controlled a large portion of the Ottoman Empire. - Full green morocco binding, with double gilt dentelles around sides and spine panels, gilt inside dentelles and top edges gilt (by Zaehensdorf, London).

        Two Typed Letters Signed to Gilbert Seldes

      On New Yorker stationery Benchley writes on March 4th, 1935, â??...The misunderstanding about the avuncular nature of my piece was natural, as Soglow drew much smaller children than I had in mind....I didnâ??t know that the younger ones roamed in and out of the house as ominously. Evidently Soglow did...But if am only an uncle, what the hell are these term-bills on my desk for?...How about a little trip to the Coast this summer to...[see] the new Dorothy Parker. Iâ??ll be at M-G-M taking the place of the old lion who just died.â? Signed â??Bob.â? Seldes has made a pencil note at the bottom of the page, â??we went that year or the next and saw Bob at his best - we stayed with Dotty.â? Another typed letter on his own stationery is dated April 21, 1937 and has the recipientâ??s ink note at the top of the page that this concerned a Sacco-Vanzetti scholarship proposal, â??...maybe I can work out here just as well among the rich liberals. They are suckers for that sort of thing...I will write to Johnny Marquand...Freddy Allen of Harpers ought to be a joiner..and, of course, there is Sam Behrman. Do we have to stick to Harvard men? I suppose so...I should think that Frankfurter might be able to tell us how to go about it... Let me know at the Garden of Allah...â? Signed â??Bob.â?

        Original lithographed poster: "Gala Reception & Ball In Honor of the No. 1 Roosevelt Democrat Josesph F. Guffey [with] Handbill promoting the same event

      Poster and associated handbill announcing a gala reception and ball for Senator Joseph F. Guffey, a Pennsylvania New Deal Democrat who represented Pennsylvania in the Senate from 1935 to 1947. The gala, organized by the "Progressive Young Colored Democrats" of Pittsburgh and free to all, was clearly intended as a thank-you gift to Pittsburgh's black voters, in appreciation for their role in electing Guffey to his first term in 1934. The event was held at The Syria Mosque, Pittsburgh's flagship performance hall, and featured entertainment by the great stride pianist and bandleader Claude Hopkins. Both pieces feature inset portraits of Roosevelt, Guffey, and of Hopkins and his orchestra including the talented vocalist Orlando Roberson (here misspelled "Robeson"). Hopkins, Roberson and orchestra were by this time a well-known act, having been featured in three of Vitaphone's "race" movies of the 1930s. & & An extremely rare example. The New Deal and the Great Depression marked the first time in modern political history that mainstream political parties pursued African-American voters in a systematic way; this poster reflects that effort while highlighting one of the great black jazz orchestras of the period. No other examples found in commerce or in institutional collections (2014), nor any material created or published by the "Progressive Young Colored Democrats." [Pittsburgh: Progressive Young Colored Democrats, 1935] Lithographed poster, 26" x 20," printed in black ink on cream poster stock. Old folds; minute nicks to extremities; still a bright, unworn example, Near Fine; unbacked and unrestored. Accompanying handbill measures 9"x6", bifolium (4pp); slight dusting and wear, Near Fine.

        Fine original large silver print photograph of the distinguished Ukrainian-born American bass in profile by the noted Hungarian-born photographer Laszlo Willinger (1909-1989)

      390 x 290 mm. Signed by the photographer in white ink at the lower left corner. Vienna, ca. 1935. Slightly worn, with slight curl to edges. In very good condition overall. . Kipnis was a member of both the Berlin Staatsoper (1930–1935) and the Vienna Staatsoper (1935–1938); he became an American citizen in 1934. "By then he had established himself everywhere as an outstanding Wagner and Mozart bass and a highly distinguished interpreter of Italian and Russian roles. He was much in demand at Bayreuth, singing there between 1927 and 1933, and appeared at the 1937 Salzburg Festival as Sarastro under Toscanini." Desmond Shawe-Taylor in Grove online Willinger, who left Berlin for Vienna in 1933, is particulary noted for his portrait photography; his subjects include Marlene Dietrich, Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Max Reinhardt and many other notables of the 1930s and '40s. He moved to the United States in the mid-'30s and was one of the first Hollywood photographers to experiment in the use of color. A fine example of this important photographer's early work.

        MAN WHO BROKE THE BANK AT MONTE CARLO, THE (1935)

      USA 1935 - Vintage original 41 x 81" (102 x 202 cm.) three sheet poster style A, USA. Ronald Colman, Joan Bennett, Colin Clive, Nigel Bruce, Montagu Love, dir: Stephen Roberts; Twentieth Century Fox. The title for the film originated in the popular 1892 song of the same name. This is the story of Paul Gallard (Colmen), a once artistocratic Russian prince (called White Russian) displaced during World War I who is living in Paris and earns his living driving a taxi. Traveling to Monte Carlo, he gambles with money supplied to him by his compatriots. Fortunately he wins, breaking the bank. The casino loves the publicity it could bring them, particularly should he return to the tables, but instead he warns the public of the hazards of gambling. The film was highlighted by Colin Clive's villainous performance. Film was made at the time of the merger between 20th Century and Fox Pictures. Stunning portraiture of Coleman and Bennett, with scenario of Coleman at the gambling table. On linen, NEAR FINE.

        Mutiny on the Bounty Glass Cinema Advertising Slide

      National Studios, no date but, New York 1935 - Glass slide, 83 x 100 mm., coloured transfer; very good in the original card mount. A Thousand Hours of Hell For One Moment of Love! A fantastic reminder that while scholars and historians have argued for centuries about the true motives of the Bounty mutiny, that no such doubts troubled the producers at MGM when they released their seminal film starring Charles Laughton and Clark Gable in 1935. These coloured glass slides are fragile and thus rare survivals. They were used in cinemas as advertising slides for coming attractions, and this particular one, with its prominent positioning of the Tahitian woman with just a bare silhouette of the boat in the background, is a reminder of precisely just how "exotic" the Pacific setting was thought to be. The tagline for the movie posters was just as explicit: "A Thousand Hours of Hell For One Moment of Love!" Although it is not possible to be certain, the figure may be based on the Hawaiian-born actor Mamo Clark, who played Gable's love-interest in the film.

      USA 1935 - Vintage original 14 x 36" (35 x 91 cm.) insert poster, USA. Helen Gahagan, Randolph Scott, Helen Mack, Nigel Bruce, dir: Lansing C. Holden, Irving Pinchel; RKO. A wonderful poster featuring some of the most tense moments enacted in this classic fantasy horror from the makers of KING KONG. Spectacular conceptual art as only RKO presented during the 1930s. It is the Bauhaus-inspired sets (Van Nest Polgase), Max Steiner's score and the mannered performance of Helen Gahagan as SHE which give the film its special atmosphere. Leo Vincey's ancestors tell of a land where immortality is achieved and so, along with a lady and fellow explorer, they set out to find this fantastic place. They find that it is led by a priestess known as SHE, who must be obeyed, and she takes Leo to be her long-lost lover -- his ancestor, John Vincey. For just a few years during the 1930s, the Academy gave an award for dance direction, and this film has the distinction of being one of the few nominated for that award. Linen-backed, there has been a little touch-up to blank margins especially at lower left, there is one mended tear, and the linen displays a little rippling, overall this poster is in really nice shape, NEAR FINE.
