        Four Schools

      Obelisk Press, Paris 1935 - Small 8vo, pp. 118. Original red stiff paper wrappers, lettered in black on front panel and spine. Light chipping to spine ends, production-fault creasing to spine paper, a little bumping to corners. A very good copy of a very fragile item. First edition. A tirade against the English public school system, published when its author was still only twenty-one years old. Anderson's targets include Marlborough College (here re-christened 'Knarlesborough') and L'Ecole de Commerce in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. The Obelisk Press was an English-language, Paris-based imprint, run by a Mancunian expatriate called Jack Kahane. Kahane specialised in the publication of books which either had been banned in the USA or England, or which were unable to find a publisher in their home countries for fear of prosecution. Four Schools shares the same cover design and typeface as Henry Miller's Aller Retour New York, also published by Obelisk in late 1935. Anderson's book, dull both in subject matter and execution, may have been taken on by Kahane as a piece of paid-for vanity publishing, printed at the same time as Miller's book to save money. The extreme scarcity of Four Schools suggests a tiny print run. A very good copy of one of the rarest of all Obelisk titles. Pearson A-36.

        NO THANKS

      New York: The Golden Eagle Press, 1935. Book. Hardcover. First Edition. New York: The Golden Eagle Press, 1935. First trade edition, limited to 900 copies printed on Ricardi Japanese paper. 5 3/4" x 7 1/2", [80] pp. Seventy poems, including the famous grasshopper poem and other examples of the poet's most challenging typographical experiments. The oblong format permits the spatial arrangement of the longer poems to be preserved intact, running onto the next page without a break. Among the best known poems herein are "here's to opening and upward," "love's function is to fabricate unknownness," and the sensually ecstatic "may I feel said he." Cummings (1894-1962) had received a Guggenheim grant in order to complete this collection of poems, but the manuscript was rejected by fourteen major publishers whose names are listed in the shape of a funeral urn on the false dedication page. The actual dedication appears at the rear of the book: "AND THANKS TO R.H.C." (the poet's mother, Rebecca Haswell Cummings, who supplied the funds to privately publish this book). Original beige cloth, with titles stamped in red, blue stained edges, and a brown paper dust jacket printed in red. Two faint spots to the fore-edge. The cloth is lightly spotted along the top edge of the front board. Typical minor browning along the extremities of the dust jacket, with a triangular chip to the spine heel; otherwise very good.

        THE DISCOVERY OF THE OREGON TRAIL, ROBERT STUART'S NARRATIVES OF HIS OVERLAND TRIP EASTWARD FROM ASTORIA IN 1812-13

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1935., 1935. First edition. 8vo. Cloth, ix-cxxxvii, 391 pp., 4 plates, 6 maps, teg, preface. Abbreviations used in footnotes. Biographical notes on Robert Stuart and other Stuart family members. Lengthy foreword and appendices. Index. The rear panel of dust jacket provides an excellent description of this important work: "Robert Stuart, born in Scotland, came to the United States at the age of 25. Becoming associated with John Jacob Astor, he shared in the founding of Astoria, Oregon, which he reached by sail around Cape Horn. When it became necessary to establish communication with New York, Stuart volunteered to attempt to cross overland. With 5 companions, he set out eastward in June, 1812, and after a journey of incredible hardship and heroic effort, reached St. Louis on April 30, 1813. His was the third party to cross the continent, inside the United States, and his route was to become known as the "Oregon Trail". The story of the journey was told by Washington Irving in his Astoria. Until now, however, Stuart's own journal, a detailed, day-by-day record of the traverse, has not been published. He left 2 manuscripts: the original journal and a later revision, incomplete, which has acquired the designation of Stuart's Traveling Memoranda. Both are given their first English publication here in an edition carefully prepared by Philip Ashton Rollins, who has made repeated and thorough study of the country of the route. The editor has written a biographical note on Robert Stuart, an introduction to the Journal and to the Traveling Memoranda, and has thoroughly annotated both manuscripts. The result is a notable addition to American journals of exploration." The lengthy appendices include the first English translations printed of "An account of the Tonquin's voyage and of events at Fort Astoria, 1811-12," and, "Wilson Price Hunt's diary of his overland trip westward to Astoria in 1811-12," both of which originally appeared in Nouvelles Annales

        Original corrected manuscript: "Au Secretariat International", dated 2 March1935; signed in ink using his pseudonym "Crux

      N.p., 1935. A long memorandum, addressed to the International Secretariat of the Ligue Communiste Internationale, concerning the Belgian Opposition and the defection of Georges Vereeken's Spartakus group. The text constitutes a major attack against Vereeken, who had broken with the main-line Trotskyists in Belgium over Trotsky's advocacy of the so-called "French Turn," a tactic of infiltrating mainstream Socialist parties throughout Europe in order to promote a more revolutionary agenda within them. Trotsky singles out Vereeken's support of the middle-of-the-road De Man economic plan in Belgium as evidence of ideological weakness. The document does not appear in the on-line archive of Trotsky's letters to Belgium at www.marxists.org, but it is a known document; collected in its English version in the Merit Publishers edition of Trotsky's Complete Writings (1969). Substantial original manuscript (carbon) of 8pp (ca 3000 words), on onionskin, with ink hand-corrections likely in Trotsky's hand. Signed at end of text, "Crux" - Trotsky's most common pseudonym during his period of exile. Minor old wear; paper-clip stain to upper margin; Very Good. Text entirely in French.

        Stolen Sweets - October, 1935. George Quintana Cover. Pin-Up

      Wilmington, DE: Nudeal Publishing Co., Inc., 1935 Wilmington, DE: Nudeal Publishing Co., Inc., 1935. First Edition of the October, 1935 issue (Volume I, Number 6). 10 3/4" x 7 3/4", illustrated wrappers, 58 pp. with illustrations and photographs (nudes). A rare signed cover piece by the rather enigmatic George Quintana, featuring one of his unforgettably super-fetching Harlowesque ladies, this one sitting on a divan wearing...not very much, and even that on only two out of three locations which would ordinarily be clad. Over-eighteen purchase only. In exceptionally nice condition for a thirties girlie pulp. 1" slit at spine top, spine wear otherwise minimal. Some sporadic soiling, otherwise no salient flaws. On the line between Very Good and Very Good plus. Quite supple. A scarce issue from a scarce sequence of this short-lived thirties girlie mag which featured top-flight covers for the genre. A classic from a classic genre, its contents are the standard fare: 8 full-page B&W nude photographs, soft (by today's standards) erotica short stories, and B&W illustrations for those stories which are quite thoroughly art-deco-y and rather collectible in their own right. Some really quite intriguing ads toward the end, as well, something many members of this genre lacked. With the exception of the occasional signed cover (such as this rare Quinatana cover), the illustrations in this genre were generally unsigned and uncredited, and the authors of the stories were pseudonymic; while the genre was certainly not "indecent" enough to be banned, these magazines were not something most artists and authors particularly wanted credit for at that time. Stories in this issue: "Shanghaied In Paris" (John M. Glade); "Lucky Escapade" (Dolores Clair); "Special Assignment" (T.E. Roberts); "Nature Takes Its Course" (Don Ambrose); "Glass Studio" (Joseph Linden); "Revolutionary Interlude" (Robert Newhall); and "Shared Love" (Ural C. Murphy). Rare piece of periodical history.

        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.
