      Clinton, Indiana:. 1935 - 1942 (?).. 9-1/4" x 12-1/4". Unpaginated, though 40 pp.. Commercial photograph album with black pages and brown boards with cord & tie; ÒClinton, IndianaÓ written in white ink on front cover.. Album: Very Good; Photographs - most clear and sharp. Memorabilia:. Very Good [or better].. In 1933, as the Great Depression continued unabated, Congress passed emergency legislation to implement President RooseveltÕs New Deal CCC program. Young men desperate for employment from all over the country flocked by the hundreds to join. Among them was the anonymous compiler of this album. Assigned to a company that was initially headquartered in Clover, Utah, he apparently moved with his corps from the foot of the Stansbury Mountains to the flat rural terrain of Wilmington, Ohio, to the coal mining community of Clinton, Indiana. In each of these under- developed and wide open spaces, CCC camps were built and barracks were constructed to house Òthe camp boysÓ. Recruited for tours of duty of up to a year, these men were put to work six days a week building recreation facilities, trails, culverts, and roads. Army reserve officers, some of whom appear in photographs and named in the captions, ran the camps and the work details. A CCC educational advisor, one of the teachers or vocational experts assigned to the camp to teach literacy or a trade, is also pictured. & & From these images it is easy to see that far from home, in unfamiliar country, and doing back-breaking labor together for long hours, the men became each othersÕ family. On their bunks or out in the blazing sun, posing together and with arms slung over each othersÕ shoulders, the comradery is evident. Captions read Òthe Polaks [sic] from ToledoÓ, ÒOhio BuckeyesÓ, Òthe Clover Softball TeamÓ, ÒScheeser [the dog] Camp MascotÓ, and several photographs are captioned simply ÒThe Camp BoysÓ. A few men are named in multiple photographs. The compiler included a number of pictures of the features and equipment of the camp: Òthe Camp ClotheslineÓ, ÒMess HallÓ, ÒStorage Tents and Cedar Posts [logs] in BackgroundÓ and ÒCamp Caterpillar.Ó He also seemed to be sensitive to the raw beauty of the arid areas in which they worked. There are pictures of Rush Valley sheep, mountain passes and mountain views, salt desert views, horses and cattle grazing, and the creek at Clover. Souvenir postcards of cities, natural features, and a child film star are found in the last pages of the album. & & An unidentified portrait, which could be the compiler of this album, is laid in. By 1941 the CCC programs were ending, and it was probable that the young men pictured in this album were soon to wear another form of uniform as the U.S. entered World War II. The photographs remain, however, to give evidence of the CCC legacy: Americans, hard at work, pulling together, building a strong infrastructure for the nation. . 152 images, most captioned. 19 postcards (some real photo postcards), 1 canteen book cover; 10 captioned photographs lacking. Photographs and postcards inserted into photo corners on each page. & & Places Mentioned in Photograph Captions:& & Clover, Utah & Grantsville, Utah& Tooele, Utah& Stansbury Mountains& Onaqui Mountains & Oquirrh Mountains& Wilmington, Ohio - Camp Clinton, Corps #3502 & Henryville, Indiana& Clinton, Indiana.

        BOXING IN ART AND LITERATURE Inscribed by Ernest Hemingway to his friend, boxing coach, and pallbearer

      New York: Reynal & Hitchcock, 1935. First Edition. hardcover. Near Fine in a specially made clamshell box. This anthology, featuring one of Hemingway's most enduring short stories ("Fifty Grand"), is INSCRIBED and SIGNED by Hemingway to George Brown: "For George, from his pal, Ernie." Brown was Hemingway's dear friend as well as his personal trainer and boxing coach. He served as a pallbearer at Hemingway's funeral. As far as we can determine, he was the only nonrelation on an "Ernie" basis with Hemingway. Although Hemingway regularly inscribed large numbers of his books (many that he did NOT inscribe can be found on ), it is quite possible that this is the only inscribed copy of this book. A wonderful and, given the subject of the anthology, appropriate association copy.

        The Cave at Altamira at Santillana del Mar, Spain

      Madrid: Tipografia de Archivos. 1935. An elaborate volume on the prehistoric cave paintings of Altamira, updating a 1906 edition by Breuil and Emile Cartailhac. Large quarto with 52 plates, both black & white photographs and full color plates reproducing Breuil's original drawings of the animals in the Altamira frescoes. A number of the color plates are double pages; all are protected with tissue guards. The caves at Altamira were discovered in the 1870s and were the first caves to be found that contained prehistoric artworks. Their Spanish discoverers were ridiculed for claiming that the paintings belonged to people of the Upper Paleolithic era, and it wasn't until decades later, after numerous other such caves had been found around Europe, that this became a generally recognized truth. Breuil, a French archeologist, visited the site and made drawings of a number of the animals depicted on the cave walls for the 1906 monograph -- notably in particular a species of bison that had been extinct in Spain for thousands of years; three decades later he updated and expanded his work, taking advantage of increased access to the cave and newly available lighting. The present volume has more plates than the earlier one, and all of the earlier images have been updated and improved. The discovery of the caves at Altamira was one of the most significant archeological discoveries of the 19th century, changing forever our understanding of our human forebears. This volume was produced during the Spanish Second Republic, the relatively brief period of liberal democracy preceding the Spanish Civil War and the subsequent forty years of fascist rule. A beautiful book, three quarter bound in leather and attractively and elaborately printed. . First Edition. Hardcover.

        Death in the Clouds

      London, Collins. 1935. , 1935. FIRST EDITION, INSCRIBED by the author to flyleaf "With Love from / Agatha." Pp.252 + 4 [advertisements]. Publisher's orange cloth titled in black, some light fading to the spine and the customary slight wear to extremities and spine ends. A little dusty to the top-edge. In a supplied second issue (i.e repriced at 3/6) wrapper, whicxh remains in a splendid degree of preservation, a trifle frayed at head of spine but resplendant with the vivid blues and bright white decoration that all too often are soiled and darkened by both the passage of time and repeated readings of stories that have become classics of the mystery genre. Altogether a lovely addition to any serious collection of Agatha Christie. In the book, Poirot is a passenger on board a flight from Paris to Croydon. Some time before landing, one of the passengers, Madame Giselle - a moneylender - is found dead. Initially, a reaction to a wasp sting is postulated, but Poirot spies the true cause of death: a poison-tipped dart, apparently fired from a blowpipe. It becomes apparent that the victim has been murdered.

      Newtown, Wales: The Gregynog Press, 1935. ONE OF 285 COPIES (of 300, counting 15 copies bound in morocco). Hardcover. 286 x 225 mm (11 1/4 x 8 7/8"). 4 p.l., 141, [1] pp., [1] leaf (colophon). ONE OF 285 COPIES (of 300, counting 15 copies bound in morocco). Publisher's white pigskin, blocked in gilt on front cover with medallion of arabesque design incorporating flower and butterflies, straps depicted in gilt on spine where bands would be, gilt top, other edges untrimmed. In a (somewhat soiled but apparently original) ivory-colored buckram traycase. With initial letters designed by Graily Hewitt and printed in green, and with 24 wood engravings in the text, two of them full-page, redrawn by Dorothy Hawksley from designs by Edward Burne-Jones and cut by Loyd Haberly and R. John Beedham. Printed in red and black on Batchelor handmade paper. Harrop 33; De Zilverdistel Cat. II, 33. Just a touch of soil to the white pigskin, but the binding otherwise unworn, and, in all, AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY, internally pristine and used so little that the volume opens only reluctantly. Cave says that the present item, the last work produced under Haberly's supervision, was the "principal book to be produced" during Haberly's regime. Franklin calls the work "a notable book . . . bringing together almost sentimentally the old players--Kelmscott paper, a type cut for the press, Graily Hewitt, Burne-Jones, Bridges," and he praises the controversial typeface as "a bit undisciplined but brave and different, calligraphic, splendid for Gregynog." This is the only item, aside from a Christmas card, printed at the Gregynog Press using the squat, rounded, curvilinear Gregynog type. The illustrations in the present work are reworked from Burne-Jones' drawings done for William Morris' "Cupid and Psyche," and the text is a translation of Apuleius' "Eros and Psyche" by poet laureate Robert Bridges (1844-1930). Harrop says that our ordinary binding (which, as handsomely decorated high quality pigskin, is not really ordinary at all) in this case is "infinitely preferable to the special binding." Because of its traycase, our volume--particularly vulnerable to soiling and darkening--has been protected from dirt and light over the years, and it is inconceivable that one could find a cleaner copy or one exhibiting so few signs of use.

      New York: The Limited Editions Club. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine. FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION OF ULYSSES, ONE OF ONLY 250 COPIES SIGNED BY BOTH JAMES JOYCE AND HENRI MATISSE; one of the most celebrated books of the twentieth century. The Limited Editions Club's Ulysses is the first illustrated Ulysses and "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 and the Book, 197). Illustrated by Matisse with twenty-six plates, consisting of six soft-ground etchings, printed by hand, and twenty lithographic drawings, made as studies for the etchings, printed on thin colored papers. One of only 250 copies signed by both Joyce and Matisse (the remaining 1250 copies of the edition were signed only by Matisse). New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935. Quarto, original brown buckram embossed in gold on front cover and spine from a design by LeRoy H. Appleton; top edge sprinkled brown, others uncut; original slipcase. Minor wear to slipcase.

No. 1367 OF 1,500 COPIES, SIGNED BY MATISSE. Publisher's original brown buckram, embossed in gilt and titled on front cover and on flat spine, the decorations from a design by LeRoy H. Appleton. Housed in the original (slightly worn but generally well-preserved) board slipcase with brown titling on the spine. WITH 26 ILLUSTRATIONS BY HENRI MATISSE, depicting the Calypso, Aeolus, Cyclops, Nausicaa, Circe, and Ithaca episodes from Homer's "Odyssey." With the book review from the 24 November 1935 "New York Times" laid in at front. Slocum & Cahoon A-22; Quarto-Millenary 71; "The Artist and the Book" 197. Slipcase with minor soiling and with discreet minor and very neat glue repairs along joints, tiny losses of paper at head and tail of spine, otherwise solid and excellent. The volume itself in virtually mint condition. This is a particularly well-preserved copy of the only book illustrated by Matisse to be published in America, and one of the great collaborations of artist and author in the annals of 20th century private press publication. In the opinion of art publisher Monroe Wheeler, "It was a great idea to bring [Joyce and Matisse] together; celebrities of the same generation, of similar virtuosity." Newman says that this work and the Limited Editions Club "Lysistrata" "stand as landmarks in the history of the illustrated book," and the "Ulysses" is almost certainly the most famous work among LEC publications designed by George Macy. Matisse's illustrations are curious in that they were based not on "Ulysses," a work the artist had not read when he was asked to make etchings for the text, but on Homer's "Odyssey," from which Joyce's book obviously derives. "Following Matisse's wishes, the preparatory studies were grouped in front of each corresponding print, allowing the viewer to see the progression from sketch to finished composition." (Grolier Club Exhibition) Joyce was furious when he learned that Matisse had chosen to illustrate scenes from Homer's "Odyssey" as he had not bothered to read "Ulysses." As a result, he stopped signing the Limited Editions Club printing in a fit of pique, after affixing his signature to 250 copies (whereas Matisse signed them all). Although the LEC edition of "Ulysses" is far from a rare book in the marketplace, it is becoming more difficult to find in very fine condition (as here) and especially so with an excellent slipcase like the one housing our volume.

        Typed Letter, signed ("George Gershwin") to Hollywood music director Abe Meyer, thanking him for his "charming letter regarding PORGY AND BESS"

      New York, 8 november, 1935. 8 x 7 inches. One page, on personal stationery. Fine, matted and framed, with a portrait . Interesting letter, written less than a month after Gershwin's now legendary opera opened on October 10, 1935, to mixed reviews and a disappointingly short run. In this letter to Abe Meyer, musical director of many Hollywood movies (including REEFER MADNESS), Gershwin seems genuinely touched by Meyer's remarks: "- please accept my belated thanks for your charming letter regarding 'Porgy and Bess' last month. I appreciate your thoughtfulness in writing to me -" A fine, succinct example of a Gershwin letter from that period mentioning the work he is most remembered for, shortly after the opening, and signed boldly and in full

        Gouache aquarellée signée Gino Starace pour la couverture de « Mady Bijou » de Léon Sazie

      Arthème Fayard 1935 Gouache aquarellée signée Gino Starace pour la couverture de « Mady Bijou » de Léon Sazie, n°318 du Livre Populaire, Arthème Fayard, 1935. Exécutée sur un carton Canson lavis A à grain satiné de format 17 x 25 cm (marges comprises ; le dessin fait 15 x 24), signées par l'artiste. La cartouche du titre fait partie du dessin original ; un macaron avec le prix de vente est collé. Un papier calque monté sur le haut du canson vient protéger le dessin. Magnifique état. Giocchino Starace (1859 ? 1950), dit Gino Starace, fut le célèbre illustrateur de la collection du « Livre Populaire » des éditions Arthème Fayard, il en fit un nombre impressionnant de couvertures, choisissant très souvent une scène majeure, violente, étrange, émouvante, du roman, ou bien un portrait saisi dans un sentiment de colère, d'effarement, de terreur. Starace, dit-on, lisait souvent les textes pour choisir la scène qu'il allait composer. Natif de Naples, ce dessinateur italien a dominé presque un demi-siècle de littérature populaire française, grâce à une technique classique irréprochable au service des débordements du genre. Dans Lisibilité, emphase, narrativité (in Tapis Franc n°1, 1988), Daniel Couégnas montre que Starace perçut « la nécessité vitale qui commandait que l'illustration de couverture, cette affiche publicitaire en réduction fût saisie instantanément, appréhendée, déchiffrée de manière univoque par le regard afin de provoquer désir ou curiosité, conditions nécessaires d'une lecture ultérieure du roman ». Il précise que « la force de Starace, c'est sa capacité de synthétiser en une scène les stéréotypes qui renvoient immédiatement le lecteur moyen, médiocrement instruit, à un déjà-lu, ou un déjà-vu, tant historique que dramatique ou psychologique. » Son classicisme marié aux excès mélodramatiques, le choix de couleurs vives, la dynamique du mouvement et l'emphase constituent sa griffe qui culmine avec la folie surréaliste de la série à 65 centimes des Fantômas de Pierre Souvestre et Marcel Allain. Relevons aussi de grands textes de Gaston Leroux (Chéri-Bibi), les Pardaillan de Michel Zévaco, la saga de Rocambole de Ponson du Terrail, Naz-en-l'Air de Souvestre et Allain Comme neuf couverture rigide Edition originale Signé par l'auteur
