        Green Hills of Africa

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1935. First edition. Octavo, original green cloth. Inscribed by the author, "To Gweneth P. Beam wishing her plenty of luck Ernest Hemingway." The recipient was a secretary at Scribners at the time of publication when Hemingway inscribed this copy to her. Some light fading to the cloth as usual in a bright near fine dust jacket. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A very sharp copy.Green Hills of Africa was published in 1935, but initially appeared in Scribners Magazine the same year (Meyers, 1985). The first edition explains that Hemingway "attempted to write an absolutely true book to see whether the shape of a country and the pattern of a month's action can, if truly presented, compete with a work of the imagination." The author's intentions were quickly confirmed when the first print-run sold a popular 10,500 copies, and it was aptly praised by The New York Times as "[a] fine book on death in the African afternoon...The writing is the thing; that way he has of getting down with beautiful precision the exact way things look, smell, taste, feel, sound." Not unlike Hemingway's virtuosic abilities, Green Hills of Africa also offers the writer's opinions on the value of his contemporaries: "The good American writers are Henry James, Stephen Crane, and Mark Twain… Henry James wanted to make money. He never did, of course." Hemingway adds that most American writers are inadequate and "came to a bad end" The value of Green Hills of Africa, therefore, is three-fold. It serves as masterly written entertainment, a successful social experiment that tested the receptivity of the American public, and an insight into the author's literary evaluation. The Observer is correct when it wrote, "If he were never to write again, his name would live as long as the English language, for Green Hills of Africa takes its place beside his other works on that small shelf in our libraries which we reserve for the classics.

        The 39 Steps (Original UK Pressbook for the 1935 film)

      London: Gaumont, 1935. Original UK Pressbook for the classic 1935 film, based on the 1915 novel by John Buchan. A rare and blazingly beautiful artifact from one of the foundational espionage thrillers of the twentieth century.& & Hitchcock's adaptation of Buchan's novel proved, as usual, to be an improvement on the source material, adding two key female characters and removing a couple of serious plot implausibilities. Of nearly inestimable importance is that Hitchcock found in "The 39 Steps" a theme that would become his favorite, and one whose variations he would virtually exhaust: an innocent man on the run, clever and resourceful but surrounded by a conspiracy he doesn't understand. & & Card wrappers with a color lithograph design, saddle stitched, 12 x 18 inches, faint horizontal fold as issued. Newsprint pages Very Good plus with some minute nicking at the edges, lightly toned, wrapper bright and Near Fine.

This example inscribed on the half-title by both Ray and Elluard "a mon amis Louis de Gonzague-Frick". (Gonzague-Frick was a French poet, author and actor who was active in the French avant-garde movement of the time. He founded l'école poétique du Lunain in Paris in the year of Facile's publication - 1935.) Some wear to the wrappers, toning to the papers as usual, in modern clamshell box. Copies of this title inscribed by both are highly desirable; an association copy with respect to an important figure from the French avant-garde movement is all the more so.

        The Hound Of Death And Other Stories - Rare Collins 1st w/Original Dust Jacket

      Collins (U.K.) 1935 - AGATHA CHRISTIE - THE HOUND OF DEATH AND OTHER STORIES, published by Collins, copyright 1933 (Odhams), 1935 First Printing (this first printing by Collins was in 1935 and had no copyright date and no printing references on copyright page, what others consider the 2nd printing has a 1936 date on the copyright page, no tipped-in title page and no list of Collin's Christie's to left of title page), publisher's tipped-in title page (Collins used the Odhams plates and so had to change the title page) and no list of other Christie books to left of title page, white endpapers, green boards with black lettering on spine (uniform edition). VERY VERY RARE UK COLLINS 1ST EDITION/PRINTING - THE TRUE 1ST UK PRINTING WAS PUBLISHED BY ODHAMS IN 1933 (IT WAS THE FIRST UK CHRISTIE TO BE PUBLISHED BY A PUBLISHER OTHER THAN COLLINS SINCE 1926). AND AS A RESULT OF THE POPULARITY OF THIS BOOK, IN 1935 COLLINS SECURED THE REPRINTING RIGHTS FOR THIS BOOK FROM ODHAMS AND PRINTED THEIR OWN EDITION. THE FIRST COLLINS EDITION CAME IN TWO STATES - ONE WITH THE STANDARD ORANGE BOARDS (WHICH COLLINS USED ON ALL OF ITS 1ST PRINTINGS) AND THE OTHER (THIS BOOK) PUBLISHED IN THE GREEN BOARDS (WHICH COLLINS USED ON ITS UNIFORM EDITION FORMAT) AND BOTH WERE PUBLISHED IN 1935 BUT HAD NO DATE ON THE COPYRIGHT PAGE. THE 2ND PRINTING ALSO EXISTS IN TWO STATES - BOTH HAVE THE COPYRIGHT 1936 DATE ON THE COPYRIGHT PAGE WITH NO REFERENCES TO SUBSEQUENT PRINTINGS - ONE STATE OF THE 1936 PRINTING HAS BLACK BOARDS (WHICH WAS COLLINS STANDARD FOR EARLY REPRINTINGS OF ITS BOOKS) AND THE OTHER STATE HAD GREEN BOARDS (WHICH WAS COLLINS STANDARD FOR ITS "UNIFORM EDITION" PUBLISHED IN THE LATE 1930s). MOST PEOPLE BELIEVE (AS ITS REPORTED IN VARIOUS CHRISTIE BIO BOOKS) THAT THE 1ST COLLINS PRINTING WAS 1936. THAT IS INCORRECT. I HAVE A 4TH PRINTING OF THIS BOOK WHICH SHOWS THAT THE PRINTING HISTORY THAT COLLINS FIRST PUBLISHED THIS BOOK IN 1935 (THE ORANGE BOARD & GREEN BOARD EDITIONS), SO THE 1936 BLACK AND GREEN BOARD EDITIONS WITH 1936 ON COPYRIGTH PAGE ARE CLEARLY THE 2ND/3RD PRINTINGS (ALTHOUGH NEITHER STATE AS SUCH - THEY HAVE NO PRINTING HISTORY BESIDES THE 1936 COPYRIGHT). THIS BOOK WAS PRINTED USING EXISTING PAGE STOCK PURCHASED FROM ODHAMS WITH A REPLACED TIPPED-IN COLLINS TITLE/COPYRIGHT PAGE - COLLINS USED ANY EXISTING BOARD STOCK TO FILL THE 1935 & 1936 PRINTINGS. Book appears unread with no creased page corners, no former ownership markings or used book store marks/stamps/stickers inside, clean endpapers with no scotch tape staining or markings, no foxing to pages or endpapers or outer pages edges (rare to find this book without foxing), hint of dusting to outer page edges (no age darkening), no spine splits, no spine lean, no wear to board edges or corners or spine splits, no dust soiling/discoloration to panels, spine fading corresponding with chip to DJ, no wear to lettering to spine, very deep bright colors to boards. Dust Jacket has large chip to top of spine, otherwise no chipping or tearing or creasing, hint of wear to bottom spine tip, no edge wear, hint wear to front flap crease (tiny bit of wear/loss to front flap crease corners), slight dust soiling to spine, no spine fade, no soiling or staining, no spine sun darkening. Overall a FINE-/N-FINE book in VG- condition dust jacket of an ultra-scarce 1930s era UK 1st Collins Agatha Christie printing with original DJ.

        Screenplay for The Thin Man Sequel [After the Thin Man] (Original screenplay, Hammett's copy, with holograph correction)

      Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM] Culver City, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1935. Dashiell Hammett's original submitted treatment for the first sequel to "The Thin Man," here titled "Thin Man Sequel," and ultimately titled "After the Thin Man." With a single holograph correction by Hammett, and letter of provenance from Hammett's daughter Josephine Hammett Marshall, regarding the discovery of the treatment in the family's estate. The first "Thin Man" film, released in 1934 and based on Hammett's novel, was a smash hit and is today a key film in the American screwball comedy cycle. Five sequels were made between 1936 and 1947 (all starring the original acting team of William Powell and Myrna Loy), and this previously unknown attempt at a sequel by Hammett was clearly commissioned by MGM but never produced. The story is a completely original one, never reworked for the other films, very much written in Hammett's trademark style and reading a bit more like a story treatment (i.e., a novel) than a final screenplay, which is likely as far as the story got on the road to production. The piece is dated Sept. 17, 1935 at the lower right corner of the front panel, along with Hammett's name, and Hammett's name is noted in pencil next to the title label (though not in Hammett's hand). There is only one single-word correction to the entire text, at page 83 in Hammett's hand, where the word "compact" is replaced with "cigarette case." Accompanying the screenplay is a typed letter signed from Hammett's daughter (who edited a recently published collection of Hammett's letters), on her personal stationery, stating that the screenplay was discovered by Hammett's wife in 1980, and that it had been a part of the family's estate until that time. Probably one of only 2-3 copies that could have been produced, and very possibly the only copy extant. To our knowledge, no other copy of this story, in any form, has ever been recorded at auction or sold on the market. Light blue studio wrappers, with the white MGM studio label present, holograph pencil notation of Hammett's name (secretarial), rubber-stamped COMPLETE, dated September 17, 1935, with a single credit for Hammett. 115 leaves, mimeograph. Pages and wrapper Very Good plus, bound with two gold brads. In a custom clamshell box. Full collation available upon request.

        Butterfield 8

      Harcourt, Brace, New York 1935 - First Edition (so stated). 8vo: [4],310pp. Publisher's black varnished V cloth, spine lettered in gilt, illustrated dust jacket priced $2.50. Hint of a lean, few faint spots of loss to varnish and minor rubbing to spine gilt, else a Near Fine or better copy in Near Fine or better jacket, vibrant and bright with several short edge tears and nicks. A very sharp copy of a title prone to fading and heavy wear. Bruccoli A4.1.a. O'Hara's third book (second novel), and easily among his best. "Set in the district of New York City covered by the Butterfield 8 telephone exchange, the story recounts the final days in Gloria Wandrous?s tragically short life in the late spring of 1930. In the throes of an unwelcome love affair with Yale alumnus Weston Liggett, Gloria temporarily purloins a fur coat belonging to Liggett?s wife, visits her best friend illustrator Eddie Brunner, and tries to determine what to do with her life. Flashbacks detail a history of pre-adolescent sexual abuse, liberal misuse of alcohol and far too many encounters with men. This time, Gloria desperately hopes, will be different. But Liggett displays a casual attitude toward their relationship that leaves Gloria unsure until the very end when, fleeing Liggett?s advances on board a pleasure boat, she falls overboard to her death. Butterfield 8?s reputation has suffered much through its unfortunate associations with . . . the 1960 film that bears its name [directed by Daniel Mann, and starring Elizabeth Taylor, Laurence Harvey, and Eddie Fisher] but which has precious little else to do with it. Freed at last from these associations (and with the unreserved endorsement of writers like social critic Fran Lebowitz and historian Shelby Foote), the novel has enjoyed a much-deserved renaissance in the last decade. Indeed, Lebowitz goes so far as to call O?Hara 'the real (F Scott) Fitzgerald' for his anatomisation of American manners in the 1930?s. O'Hara always claimed that his various protagonists were taken from the psychological profiles of real people, but here was a bone fide roman à clef, drawn from the diaries and tragic demise of one Starr Faithful, alleged to have had relationships with a number of prominent citizens, including former mayor Jimmie Walker. . . The focus on Gloria Wandrous (with its reference to real life) was intended to carry Fitzgerald?s Flapper Age into the more earnest 1930?s. Today Butterfield 8 might still be dismissed for its absence of social relevance. But it might equally be argued that this glimpse into New York life on the cusp of the Great Depression is all the more salient for its hedonism in the face of catastrophe. The strange case of Starr Faithful is still recalled by those who wish to reference this era in American social history. And John O?Hara?s novel deserves to be part of that history, as well."
