        THE DEMI-WIDOW

      Indianapolis and New York: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1935. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good. The acclaimed actress' first novel, concerning a young American widow who, to take care of her child, becomes a naughty tempermental singing star in a Parisian revue. Known in her prime as "America's Sweetheart" and the "girl with the curls," Pickford (1892-1979) was one of the Canadian pioneers of early Hollywood and a significant figure in the development of film acting. Pickford was one of the earliest stars to be billed under her name (film performers until that time were usually unbilled), and was one of the most popular actresses of the 1910s and '20s. This copy is inscribed on the front flyleaf by Pickford's third and last husband, actor and band leader Buddy Rogers ("Valerie, Mary would wish the best of every thing - so do I, Buddy '59"). Accompanied by four holographic love notes from Rogers to Pickford. Octavo. Original blue cloth binding, with gilt titles. Small ink date ("May 7, 1959") to the rear flyleaf. An especially crisp, near fine copy in a very lightly edgeworn dust jacket with a small tape repair to the verso and an extremely faint stain to top corner of the front panel.

        Mars His Idiot

      1935 - First edition. 8vo. Dustjacket, a little rubbed with two small chips. Inscribed by the author. London, Heinemann, 1935. [With] TOMLINSON (H.M.) Mars His Idiot. Proof copy. Square 8vo. Original yellow printed wrappers, annotated throughout in the author's hand. [London, Heinemann], c. At the time of publication, Tomlinson was a journalist and novelist of some note. His first published work in 1912 The Sea and the Jungle showed considerable promise and he was made a war correspondent in Belgium and France in 1914. Tomlinson became official war correspondent at British Headquarters in France, 1914-17. Here, he met H.W. Massingham, who made him assistant editor at The Nation. Tomlinson held the post until 1923. He continued to publish books throughout the twenties and thirties, turning his hand to fiction. These became increasingly preoccupied with his hatred of war and hampered somewhat by the overt moral code underpinning them. His polemic on the First World War, Mars His Idiot, was published as the Second World War appeared increasingly likely. This is a very desirable set, Tomlinson's extensive annotations to his proof show him refining and frequently strengthening his arguments even as the book went to press, and offer a fascinating commentary on the political debate over appeasement.

An erotic Lesbian tale in verse, apparently written in the early nineteenth century in two parts and telling the tale supposedly from the late nineteenth century of a lady calling herself Kydno who, tired of Paris, went by yacht to the Island of Lesbos and had built a magnificent Palace of Memory. She is an invention like Pierre Louys' Bilitis but the story had it that she gathered there a multitude of girls and gave them free 'education'. Growing old she left the college and wandered alone over the world, composing her 'Imitation of Sappho' of which there is not trace. She polished these, her epigrams, collected as 'The Golden Bed' and died in 1910 at Rhodes and was buried there. Translated form the modern Greek of Evadne Lascaris by P. Mathers who terms the book a "light coronal of perversities". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Occasional marginal notation on the plates. Each plate contains multiple images - often four to six. 3. t. trudov Muzeia / Gosudarstvennyi Darvinovskii Muzei = Scientific memoirs of the Museum Darwinianum in Moscow. Cloth. A "classic 1935 comparative study of ape [ and human ] emotions and intelligence." ( Darwin Museum Series ) From about 1913 to 1916, Madam Kohts studied a young chimpanzee named Joni in captivity and documented photographically and with detailed notes it's behavior including it's perceived emotions. In 1925, Koht's own son Roody was born, and she again took copious notes and photographs, this time with her son as the subject. After many years of work, she in 1929 she began a comparative study of the two. This study, offered here in the original edition, contains a wealth of photographic comparisons between the two, in over 145 photo-plates (containing some 600 or so images). The images convey so much information that some reviewers thought the lack of an English translation (until quite recently) was not a significant challenge. The main text is in Russian, with a short English summary at the end.While the photographic captions are in Russian, the short English text contains English captions as well. We're pleased to offer the original edition, PLUS the first English translation of this work (Oxford University Press, 2002), edited by Frans B. M. De Waal. A 1937 review in the Journal of Genetic Psychology (Vol 50, pp 465-467) notes "Madam Kohts is unquestionably an observer of ingenuity, patience, and scientific restraint. In a double sense this is a contribution to comparative psychology...It seems to us that she has succeeded better in this task of critical comparison of two species than have those studies which emphasize somewhat too strongly similarities, identities, and simian precocities." Apparently issued in an edition of 775 copies, the original work is very scarce today with a dozen copies (some represented as partial sets) in institutions, and no copies for sale as of this writing. Scarce in the trade. Near Fine.

        Original Certificate of Honour, presented to American filmmaker Alfred E. Green at the first Moscow International Film Festival.

      Moscow: Cinema Office of the People's Commissars of the U. S. S. R.,, 1935. Bifolium (leaf size 300 × 230) of heavy wove cartridge paper, lithographically printed certificate in gold and black on the recto of the first leaf with autograph signatures in purple and black ink. Housed in recent moderate red morocco backed folding chemise, dark purplish red boards, red morocco patch label to the front panel. Somewhat browned, the gold ink oxidised in places, but remains attractive and certainly very good. The certificate was awarded to the American film Gentlemen Are Born (1934), directed by Alfred E. Green and starring Franchot Tone, and is signed by the members of the jury, including Sergei Eisenstein, Vsevolod Pudovkin, and Boris Shumyatsky. Text in Cyrillic, with a contemporary typed English language translation laid-in. The best known name here is of course that of Sergei Eisenstein (1898-1948) the pioneering Russian film director, fêted for developing the montage technique, his most famous films being Alexander Nevsky (1938), Ivan the Terrible (1944), and the classic Battleship Potemkin (1925). In 1930 the jury Chairman Boris Shumyatsky (1886-1938) had been appointed by Stalin as head of Soyuzkino in 1930, the de facto executive producer for the Soviet film monopoly, continuing as head under the reorganisation as GUKF - Chief Directorate of Film and Photoindustry - in 1933. Shumyatsky's job was to ensure that films produced in the Soviet Union conformed to the official party line, and he seems to have had considerable animus towards Eisenstein, preventing him from completing a film during his reign. In 1937, Shumyatsky delivered a vicious attack on the director in the opening address at a three-day conference on cinema, "that turned into something resembling a show trial of Eisenstein" (McSmith, Fear and the Muse kept Watch, p.165), following it up with a letter to Premier Molotov denouncing seven people by name for conspiring to rescue the banned film and "discredit me as the stifler of the 'brilliant work of S. Eisenstein'". Three of the "conspirators" were "prominent writers whose status afforded them a degree of protections" (pp.165-6) the other four, including V.A. Babitsky the head of the Soviet Union's biggest studio Mosfilm, were shot. Almost inevitably Shumyatsky himself fell from grace. Early in 1938 his eight years in charge of the Soviet film industry were the subject of an "excoriating assessment" in Pravda, which concluded that he himself was colluding with "saboteurs". He was arrested and executed. Somehow Eisenstein himself managed to avoid this bloodbath and effectively rehabilitated his reputation with the release of Alexander Nevsky, which won him both the Order of Lenin and the Stalin Prize. It is unusual indeed to find the signatures of Eisenstein and Shumyatsky on the same document.

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom, the publisher's quarter leather limited edition, copy #304 of 750

      London: Jonathan Cape Ltd., 1935. First, Limited Edition. Hardcover. This is the publisher's finely bound, hand-numbered limited issue of the British first edition, copy #304 of 750. This limited issue was bound in quarter tan pigskin over brown buckram boards with gilt stamped spine, gilt front cover illustration, and gilt rule transitions. The text is printed on untrimmed sheets with gilt top edge and bound with decorative headband and marbled endpapers. This copy is in very good condition. The binding remains square and tight with a nicely rounded spine. The quarter leather shows some wear at the spine ends and hinges and a little overall scuffing, but no toning and no cracking at the hinges. The brown buckram boards show trivial scuffs but are not bowed and retain sharp corners. The contents are impressively clean, with no spotting or previous ownership marks. Even the untrimmed fore and bottom edges remain notably clean and the top edge gilt is bright. 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. 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. Winston Churchill was among Lawrence's original subscribers to the 1926 edition, though Lawrence refused to allow Churchill to pay for his copy, as a token for his esteem for the work he and Churchill had done together in the Colonial Office after the First World War. Of this text, Winston Churchill wrote: "It ranks with the greatest books ever written in the English language. If Lawrence had never done anything except write this book as a mere work of the imagination his fame would last... But it is fact, not fiction... An epic, a prodigy, a tale of torment, and in the heart of it - A Man.” The Subscriber's Edition 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 text was finally published for circulation to the general public in the form of a British first trade edition. Simultaneous with the general trade first edition, the British publisher Jonathan Cape issued this finely bound, hand-numbered limited edition of 750 copies. Bibliographic reference: O'Brien A041

        Original Certificate of Honour, presented to American filmmaker Alfred E. Green at the first Moscow International Film Festival.

      Moscow: Cinema Office of the People's Commissars of the U. S. S. R., 1935 - Bifolium (leaf size 300 × 230) of heavy wove cartridge paper, lithographically printed certificate in gold and black on the recto of the first leaf with autograph signatures in purple and black ink. Housed in recent moderate red morocco backed folding chemise, dark purplish red boards, red morocco patch label to the front panel. Somewhat browned, the gold ink oxidised in places, but remains attractive and certainly very good. The certificate was awarded to the American film Gentlemen Are Born (1934), directed by Alfred E. Green and starring Franchot Tone, and is signed by the members of the jury, including Sergei Eisenstein, Vsevolod Pudovkin, and Boris Shumyatsky. Text in Cyrillic, with a contemporary typed English language translation laid-in. The best known name here is of course that of Sergei Eisenstein (1898-1948) the pioneering Russian film director, fêted for developing the montage technique, his most famous films being Alexander Nevsky (1938), Ivan the Terrible (1944), and the classic Battleship Potemkin (1925). In 1930 the jury Chairman Boris Shumyatsky (1886-1938) had been appointed by Stalin as head of Soyuzkino in 1930, the de facto executive producer for the Soviet film monopoly, continuing as head under the reorganisation as GUKF - Chief Directorate of Film and Photoindustry - in 1933. Shumyatsky's job was to ensure that films produced in the Soviet Union conformed to the official party line, and he seems to have had considerable animus towards Eisenstein, preventing him from completing a film during his reign. In 1937, Shumyatsky delivered a vicious attack on the director in the opening address at a three-day conference on cinema, "that turned into something resembling a show trial of Eisenstein" (McSmith, Fear and the Muse kept Watch, p.165), following it up with a letter to Premier Molotov denouncing seven people by name for conspiring to rescue the banned film and "discredit me as the stifler of the 'brilliant work of S. Eisenstein'". Three of the "conspirators" were "prominent writers whose status afforded them a degree of protections" (pp.165-6) the other four, including V.A. Babitsky the head of the Soviet Union's biggest studio Mosfilm, were shot. Almost inevitably Shumyatsky himself fell from grace. Early in 1938 his eight years in charge of the Soviet film industry were the subject of an "excoriating assessment" in Pravda, which concluded that he himself was colluding with "saboteurs". He was arrested and executed. Somehow Eisenstein himself managed to avoid this bloodbath and effectively rehabilitated his reputation with the release of Alexander Nevsky, which won him both the Order of Lenin and the Stalin Prize. It is unusual indeed to find the signatures of Eisenstein and Shumyatsky on the same document.
