        Two Typed Letters Signed to Gilbert Seldes

      On New Yorker stationery Benchley writes on March 4th, 1935, ?...The misunderstanding about the avuncular nature of my piece was natural, as Soglow drew much smaller children than I had in mind....I didn?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. I?ll be at M-G-M taking the place of the old lion who just died.? Signed ?Bob.? Seldes has made a pencil note at the bottom of the page, ?we went that year or the next and saw Bob at his best - we stayed with Dotty.? Another typed letter on his own stationery is dated April 21, 1937 and has the recipient?s ink note at the top of the page that this concerned a Sacco-Vanzetti scholarship proposal, ?...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...? Signed ?Bob.?

        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.

Verso in kugelschreiber betitelt und in Bleistift bezeichnet "privat". - Im umlaufenden Rand Auf Trägerkarton aufgezogen. Dieser stark gegilbt, fleckig und mit stärkeren Randmängeln. Blatt und Darstellung in gutem Zustand. Georg Gelbke (1882 Rochlitz - 1947 Dresden). Deutscher Maler und Grafiker. Ab 1901 an der Kunstgewerbescule Dresden bei Oskar Seyferth. 1902-07 Studium an der Kunstakademie Dresden bei Richard Müller und Oskar Zwintscher. 1907 Meisterschüler bei Gotthardt Kuehl.

        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.

        SHE (1935)

      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.

The details for each man named in the record are: full name, rank, home, age, occupation, date of service and discharge, and reason for discharge. Mr. Cross was the last of three editors and it was he who completed the monumental task. Together, the military records in these 8 volumes plus Index Volime, reference approximately 140,000 individuals, nearly all men who served in Massachusetts units during the Civil War. Chapter 475 of Massachusetts' Acts of 1899 provided for the compilation and publication of a complete record of Massachusetts soldiers, sailors, and Marines who served in the Civil War. Civil War veterans began the work of compilation which lasted for nearly thirty years and involved the examination and replication of over one million records. Compilers found records on original enlistment papers, muster-in rolls, descriptive rolls, town reports, casualty lists, monthly reports, hospital records, muster-out reports, and miscellaneous papers."

        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.

        Facile. Poems de Paul Eluard. Photographies de Man Ray.

      Editions Guy Levis Mano, Paris. 1935.. 14 Bll. Mit 12 Aktaufnahmen in Heliogravüre. 4°, Orig.-Broschur. - Exemplar aus der Bibliothek von Sasa Pana.. Originalausgabe. - Mit eigenhändigem Besitzvermerk von Sasa Pana. - Eins von 1200 nummerierten Exemplaren auf Velin; daneben erschienen 25 Exemplare als Vorzugausgabe auf Japan und mit einer signierten Originalfotografie. - Die Zusammenarbeit zwischen Paul Eluard und Man Ray nahm mit der Erstellung des vorliegenden Bandes ihren Anfang. Die Aktaufnahmen zeigen die zweite Frau Eluards, genannt Nusch, für welche er die hierin erstmals veröffentlichten fünf Liebesgedichte verfasste. (Renee Riese Hubert, Surrealism and the Book, Kalifornien 1998, S. 73ff.) Maria Benz, wie die 'Muse' der Surrealisten gebürtig hieß, war Tochter eines Gauklers und verdiente sich ihren kläglichen Unterhalt, bevor sie Eluard kennenlernte, als Darstellerin in Varietes und Modell für Fotopostkarten; daneben trat sie in Kinos während der Vorführpausen als Pantomimin auf und tingelte schließlich mit einem Wanderzirkus umher, wo sie das Medium eines Taschenspielers war. Die Begegnung mit Eluard war gewissermaßen einer der geglückten Zufälle, welche die Surrealisten suchten: So flanierten der Dichter und sein Kollege Rene Char im Frühjahr 1930 den Boulevard Haussmann nahe den Galeries Lafayette entlang und sprachen die vollkommen ausgehungerte junge Frau an, um sie alsbald in ein Cafe einzuladen. Eluard bot der damals Dreiundzwanzigjährigen für die Nacht schließlich eine Bleibe in seiner Wohnung an; vier Jahre später war er mit ihr verheiratet. Die frühen Erlebnisse Nuschs entsprachen vollkommen den Vorstellungen der Surrealisten und so war sie schnell im Zentrum des Kreises. Nicht nur Man Ray und Eluard befassten sich mit ihr, auch für Picasso war sie von Bedeutung; so entstanden in den Jahren von 1937 bis 1941 acht Ölgemälde und einige Zeichnungen. (Sabine Rewald, in: Picasso et les femmes, Chemnitz 2002, S. 193ff.) - Blätter ganz schwach gebräunt. Lagen lose. - Insgesamt sehr gut erhaltenes Exemplar. - Parr/Badger 104f.

        Camera Obscura

      London: John Long, Limited, 1935.. London: John Long, Limited,, 1935.. A Novel. Translated by Winifred Roy. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt. Spine gently cocked and gilding to spine slightly darkened, spine ends, corners, and top edge of rear board a bit bumped, boards mildly rubbed, prelims and endmatter lightly foxed. Otherwise an excellent copy. First English-language edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed to the front free endpaper by Nabokov's then agent Otto Klement: 'To Margaret Anne – although not a book for children. O. Klement.' Camera Obscura was the first of Nabokov's works to be translated into English and one of two famously scarce and cheaply produced books issued by the hapless firm of John Long. It sold poorly and was remaindered in red paper boards. Nabokov greatly disliked Winifred Roy's translation and it's poor quality 'prompted Nabokov to undertake translating his next novel, Despair, by himself, a major step in his decision to become an English-language writer.' (Boyd, Russian Years, p.446).
