        Lantern Slides and Notes for a Program on Luther Burbank

      Boston, MA: E.W. Goodrich, Tremont Temple. No Binding. Very Good. Rare assemblage of hand-colored glass lantern slides for a lecture series on pioneering horticulturalist Luther Burbank. They are estimated to be mid-1920s based on Corwin's statements that they are used "with permission of Burbank from photographs taken at the time the experiments were made." Slides are housed in a locking pebbled cloth case with attached key on ribbon and were produced by E.W. Goodrich of Tremont Temple, Boston. The lecture notes are for 100 but 93 slides are present. Images include photos of Burbank and family, his home and farms, and many many varieties of plant hybrids. Two brass memorabilia with Burbank's image include a small pin (New York: Medallic Art Co.) and a watch fob proclaiming him as "The Wizard of Horticulture," an "honor award for meritorious work in introducing Stark-Burbank Fruit Creations." Burbank's work gave us spineless cactus, rainbow chard, apricot-plum crosses, the most widely-grown variety of Russet potato in the U.S, and hundreds more varieties of food and ornamental flowers. Burbank viewed his work as humanitarian and in harmony with nature, a perspective that bears interest in the current ideological arguments regarding newer technologies used in manipulation of plant genetic material.Elsie Powers Corwin was a member of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society and is listed in the Official Register and Directory of Women's Clubs in America, Volume 15 under "Dramatic Readers and Recitals" in the list of Official Classified List of Lecturers and Entertainers for the Use of Program Committees. She lists her credentials as a "Bachelor of Literary Interpretation." A folded card accompanies the collection of slides as an advertisement for lectures, and is labeled "Circular 1935." Her programs besides "Luther Burbank, Plant Scientist," included "The Tournament of Roses," "California Travelogues," "Our State Flowers," "Poems of the Flower World," "Shakespeare's Garden," and others. Included are three copies of the text that accompanies the slide program; one is handwritten, the other two are typed carbon copies. Also present are two drafts of a shorter two page essay by Corwin, "Luther Burbank - An Appreciation." Written 19 years after Burbank's death in 1926, Corwin relates visiting him for the last time in October of 1925. The handwritten slide transcript is signed on the last page and underneath notes "Property of Mr[s?] Chas. B. Lewis" of Providence, RI. This is presumed either Dr. Charles B. Lewis, physician and Director of Health and Physical Education in the Providence public schools, or his wife Mary.

        Ulysses by James Joyce. With an Introduction by Stuart Gilbert and Illustrations by Henri Matisse

      New York: Limited Editions Club, 1935. Sm. folio, xvi, 363, (1)pp., with 6 soft-ground etchings by Henri Matisse, each with reproductions of drawings towards the final plate on colored papers. Original cloth gilt, slipcase, a very good copy without the slipcase Limited to 1500 copies of the book signed by Matisse, of which this is one of only 250 copies also signed by James Joyce. Various theories have been offered for Joyce only signing some copies; in fact, correspondence at the HRC in Austin TX shows that his failing health and sight precluded his signing more than 250 or so, rather than his purported dislike of MatisseÕs illustrations or the theory that Matisse illustrated Homer not Joyce, which upset Joyce. Ã’Matisse had never visited Ireland and so Joyce asked his friend and fellow Dubliner, T.W. Pugh, to send him an illustrated magazine from 1904, the year in which Ulysses is set, so that he could correctly render the details of Dublin life. However, Matisse chose to base his etchings on Homer's Odyssey, depicting the Calypso, Aelous, Cyclops, Nausicaa, Circe and Ithaca episodes of the poem. When asked why he had not illustrated the events of Joyce's novel, he replied: 'Je ne l'ai pas lu' ('I have not read it'; Ellmann, 686).Ó (Cathach Books), One of the most famous, successful, and rarest books of the press, it was designed by George Macy himself and printed by the ClubÕs print shop.& & "One of the very few American livres de peintres issued before World War II. According to George Macy, who undertook this only American publication of Matisse's illustrations, he asked the artist how many etchings the latter could provide for five thousand dollars. The artist chose to take six subjects from Homer's Odyssey. The preparatory drawings reproduced with the soft-ground etchings (Matisse's only use of this medium) record the evolution of the figures from vigorous sketches to closely knit, if less spontaneous, compositions" - The Artist & the Book, 197. Slocum & Cahoon, A 22.

      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. .

        Real French Capers / Circa 1935. American "Good Girl" Pin-up pulp soft Erotica

      No Location: Uncredited, 1935 No Location / No Credited Publisher. Circa 1935; volume 1, no. 20, with no year given. Pulp "Good Girl" light erotica piece, with a classic "Good Girl" pin-up type illustration by Reginald Greenwood on the cover. 8.5" x 6.5", 48 pp., pictorial wrappers. In absolutely striking condition for a piece from this genre and era; some rubbing and small wear at some points on the spine, micro-edgewear, and light marginal toning of the pulp-paper contents. Very clean, very bright. The Greenwood cover - most of the limited records available on him credit him as a comic artist, and it is quite possible that anything under that name was done pseudonymously - is a "Good Girl" rarity (see scan), as is the piece in general. 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 fascinating and extraordinarily rare piece from a uniquely American pulp genre, in rather spectacular condition. 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). LBB-G

Whether with music, as in MGM's opulent The Merry Widow (1934) and Paramount's One Hour with You (1932), or without, as in Design for Living (1933), Lubitsch continued to specialize in comedy. He also made the antiwar Broken Lullaby (also known as The Man I Killed, (1932).

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. 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".

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
