        Pylon

      New York: Harrison Smith & Robert Haas, 1935. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine-/Fine-. First Printing (February, 1935, on copyright page), in First Issue dust jacket (with correct titles listed on rear panel). 8vo: 315,[1]pp. Publisher's cobalt-blue cloth, spine and upper cover stamped in gilt within a horizontal black band, top edge stained black; pictorial dust jacket, priced $2.50. About Fine (flaking to gilt spine lettering), in a bright, about Fine jacket (spine head rubbed with miniscule loss). Provenance: from the collection (now housed at the University of Central Florida Libraries) of bibliophiles Walter and Dorothy Donnelly with their label on front paste down. Petersen A17.1a. In the 1930s, Faulkner sought release from increasing personal and professional problems through flying lessons; he bought a plane, and his brothers learned to fly, too. Eventually Faulkner gave the plane to his brother Dean—and was overcome by guilt when Dean died in a crash in the same year Pylon, which concerns the exploits of a wandering troupe of gypsy aviators, was published. According to The Literary Encyclopedia, Pylon "has many failings, but did offer Faulkner a chance to try out some of the techniques he perfected in Absalom, Absalom! (1936), which is widely considered his greatest achievement." Basis for the 1958 film The Tarnished Angels, featuring Robert Stack, Rock Hudson and Dorothy Malone, about an airplane contest in New Orleans during Mardis Gras.

        South: The Harvest

      London: The Baynard Press, 1935. Mounted onto cotton First Printing Fine A fine original poster designed by John Mansbridge (British: 1901-1981) for the London Transit and printed by the Baynard Press in 1935. Fine condition. Mounted onto cotton. 25 x 40 inches. & Subtly inspired by Cubism and honoring the rural tradition set forth by Thomas Hart Benton, Mansbridge's compositions explode with a forceful confidence. His vibrant scenes of toil are charged with motion and the strenuous integrity of the laborers: both man and beast, as they sheer sheep, plow fields and reap the harvest of the verdant and amber lands of rural Britain. With an emphasis on strong design, the graphic intent of the London Transit posters was to reach a diverse audience, encourage travel and all the while enliven and brighten the oft-dreary locale of the London Underground, the "Tube". A fine, scarce example all around. &

        Jayhawker A Play in Three Acts [Signed by Sinclair Lewis] WAS $3,250

      Garden City: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1935. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +/very good. PRESENTLY DISCOUNTED. WAS $3,250. A Very Good + copy of the first edition, first printing (spine ends pushed with some tiny fraying, slight amount of fading to the board edges and spine head as is usual for this title), in a Very Good dust jacket (chip to the spine head with an associated tear, small chips to the spine tail and ends of the flap folds, age toning to the edges of the flaps and rear panel, corner-clipped by the Publisher but not price-clipped and showing the price at $2.00 -- all unsurprising for this jacket which often is found worn), SIGNED BY SINCLAIR LEWIS on the title page; Sinclair Lewis' debut (and only) published Play, a joint effort by Sinclair Lewis and by Lloyd Lewis, the then drama critic for the Chicago Daily News and a Civil War history specialist. Sinclair Lewis won the 1930 Nobel Prize in Literature for "for his vigorous and graphic art of description and his ability to create, with wit and humour, new types of characters", making him the first author from the United States to win the Prize. Declared by Sinclair Lewis Bibliographer Stephen Pastore to be "...perhaps the scarcest title in the post-1930 Lewis lexicon", the first edition of Jayhawker consisted of a mere 1,076 copies. The Play is set during the Kansas Missouri border wars which took place off and on from about 1855 to 1864. During this period, militant bands of nominal free-staters who opposed Slavery but who were willing to pillage, rob, and kill for other reasons as well, adopted the term to describe themselves. With relatively few copies of the first edition having been produced and with many of them no doubt having been claimed by time, first edition copies are rather scarce to the market. Although signed copies of Sinclair Lewis works generally are not terribly scarce, signed copies of "Jayhawker" are rare. In addition to having been signed, this copy bears a notable Provenance, having come from the Estate of decorated Naval Officer and Actor Douglas Fairbanks whose bookplate resides on the book's front pastedown. A Very Good+ copy of what itself is a rather uncommon book, and one hardly ever found signed, SIGNED BY SINCLAIR LEWIS. RARE.

        Miami and Suburbs (Central city area). Maps 1 - 5 from Plat Book of Greater Miami Florida and Suburbs

      Philadelphia.: G.M. Hopkins Co.. Copyright 1935. [1936 or 1941].. 5 maps, handcolored, each sheet size 24 x 36 inches with centrefold as issued. Damp stain to lower margins of all maps; scarcely noticeable except for sheet 1 where it is visible mostly at the lower areas of the left and right edges. Tab attached to each map as issued. Five plat maps from G.M. Hopkins "Plat Book of Greater Miami Florida and Suburbs," maps numbered 1 through 5 showing the central business and civic area of Miami. Some maps feature paste-on revisions/up-dates regarding land use. Sheets 1, 2, 3 are scaled 100 feet to 1 inch. Sheets 4 and 5 are scaled 150 feet to one inch. From South to North the alignment is as follows: sheets 4, 1, 2, 5. From West to East the alignment is as follows: sheets 3 and 1. The southern-most border (see sheet 4) is Southwest 11th which extends west to Southwest 4th and east to Biscayne Bay. The northern-most border (see sheet 5) is Northwest 18th which extends west to Northwest 3rd and east to Biscayne Bay. From West to East (see sheets 3 and 1) the western-most border is Southwest 7th; the southern-most border is Southwest 3rd on map 3 and Southeast 2nd and the Florida East Coast Railway (Royal Palm Hotel Spur) on map 1. The northern-most border is Northwest 3rd on map 3 and Northeast 4th on map 1. These maps are a fascinating look into Miami's past. Most noticeably in map 1, but to some extent with all these maps of the central area of Miami, businesses and civic buildings are extensively marked and Map 1 represents a vital city centre so different from the current time. Amendments have been glued over sections eg. a Walgreen's has been added at the corner of SE Second Avenue and E. Flagler; two new buildings have been added to an empty block between SE First and Second at Bicayne Boulevard. .

      The letter was sent from Majorca where Aragones was vacationing with in lieu of a signature and postscript greeting, a salutation and eight individual cheek kiss drawings in a strip format, for DeFuccio (unnamed but readily identified), and 7 named prominent MAD contributors and editors, each drawing reflecting the personalities of the recipient. The strip is full of good humor, capturing something of the working atmosphere at MAD: four of the kissed are also mentioned in the letter. LETTER: executed on a 10.87 x 8.39 inches (276 x 213 mm) sheet with a strip of 8 drawings, 7 appearing on the rear of the sheet, identified by name, the drawing on page one for DeFuccio + 17 lines, salutation and two captions, four words with an overwritten spelling correction by Aragones, one word with a cross-out. CONDITION DETAIL: Better Than Good; now in an archival plastic sleeve. Never mounted: no owner markings. Clean: ink bright, customary transmission folds. A few fingering pressure marks, principally at bottom edge: bottom outer corner crease lies flat: 2 tips with gentle creases, 1 tip with very light bend. PROVENANCE: estate of Jerry DeFuccio [1935-2001]. Mark Evanier has called him, MAD magazine's historian". CONTENT: addressed, "Dear Jerry", sited in Palma, dated August 21, 1967. The short letter is illuminating about the goings-on at MAD, the important role of contributor-editor feedback and the fun atmosphere. Aragones had sent an early version of "What is a Square?" (feature wouldn't appear until June 1968 in issue no. 119) and asks for feedback on cells the editor, Al Feldstein approves of. He also requests supplies be sent by Lenny Brenner, chief production consultant and suggests the feature writer, Tom Koch could do an allied feature, "What is a Sucker?", for which he could do the artwork. At the time, Aragones was with his wife in Palma, the capital of the island of Majorca, recovering from a bad case of the flu: he mentions he is now returning to health and beginning to draw again and advises Jerry DeFuccio that he can soon expect some marginals, (his celebrated margin drawing feature, "crammed with crowds of silly people doing silly things" (Evanier)). He leads off the letter by talking about the visit from John Putnam, longtime art director for MAD and how he and his wife enjoyed showing him the island. DRAWINGS: begins at foot of recto with Aragones kissing a patient DeFuccio on the cheek, the caption- "Smack!! Love". Over with an arrow points to the continuation of the strip on the rear, with 7 drawings of Aragones kissing respectively, Lenny Brenner (Lenny portrayed goggle-eyed with hair standing on end), Nick Meglin, contributing editor, (portrayed as a satyr, panting with extended tongue), Al Feldstein, (kissed from the back of the head, he grimaces with bared teeth), Bill Gaines, publisher, (he yelps in mock resignation), John Putnam, (closely embraced by Sergio, waits in shock for his release), Antonio Prohias, known for his "Spy vs. Spy" feature, (Originally from Cuba and a former mentor, he first introduced Arangones to MAD staff.), eyes closed, Antonio blissfully smiles, as if remembering something sweet and special, and last but not least, the estimable Al Jaffee, who in response to Sergio's kiss smacks him with a roundhouse punch to the jaw, the caption-Soc!, little forbearance and no fold-in from Al. (Al Jaffee was a particularly celebrated contributor to MAD and much admired by Aragones. He placed a fold-in feature at the back cover of every issue of MAD since 1964 and also had the regular feature, "Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions".) ARAGONES: A noted and prolific contributor to MAD since shortly after coming to New York from Mexico in 1962. Second only to Al Jaffee, he contributed to 415 MAD magazine issues between January 1963 and December 2007. Aragones had the "A Mad Look At" feature in addition to his celebrated, wordless marginal drawings. In 1967 he began work at DC comics, including for "Bat Lash" (begun in 68). But he is particularly known beyond his MAD artwork for his "Groo the Wanderer" series in collaboration with Mark Evanier, begun in 1981. He has received numerous awards including the Shazam Award (1972), Harvey Awards (9 times since 1990), the National Cartoonist Society Comic Book Award (1986) and numerous other NCS awards, including the 1996 Reuben, which cites his contributions to MAD and "Groo the Wanderer".

        Jayhawker A Play in Three Acts [Signed by Sinclair Lewis]

      Garden City: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1935. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +/very good. A Very Good + copy of the first edition, first printing (spine ends pushed with some tiny fraying, slight amount of fading to the board edges and spine head as is usual for this title), in a Very Good dust jacket (chip to the spine head with an associated tear, small chips to the spine tail and ends of the flap folds, age toning to the edges of the flaps and rear panel, corner-clipped by the Publisher but not price-clipped and showing the price at $2.00 -- all unsurprising for this jacket which often is found worn), SIGNED BY SINCLAIR LEWIS on the title page; Sinclair Lewis' debut (and only) published Play, a joint effort by Sinclair Lewis and by Lloyd Lewis, the then drama critic for the Chicago Daily News and a Civil War history specialist. Sinclair Lewis won the 1930 Nobel Prize in Literature for "for his vigorous and graphic art of description and his ability to create, with wit and humour, new types of characters", making him the first author from the United States to win the Prize. Declared by Sinclair Lewis Bibliographer Stephen Pastore to be "...perhaps the scarcest title in the post-1930 Lewis lexicon", the first edition of Jayhawker consisted of a mere 1,076 copies. The Play is set during the Kansas Missouri border wars which took place off and on from about 1855 to 1864. During this period, militant bands of nominal free-staters who opposed Slavery but who were willing to pillage, rob, and kill for other reasons as well, adopted the term to describe themselves. With relatively few copies of the first edition having been produced and with many of them no doubt having been claimed by time, first edition copies are rather scarce to the market. Although signed copies of Sinclair Lewis works generally are not terribly scarce, signed copies of "Jayhawker" are rare. In addition to having been signed, this copy bears a notable Provenance, having come from the Estate of decorated Naval Officer and Actor Douglas Fairbanks whose bookplate resides on the book's front pastedown. A Very Good+ copy of what itself is a rather uncommon book, and one hardly ever found signed, SIGNED BY SINCLAIR LEWIS. RARE.

        GREEN HILLS OF AFRICA

      New York: Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1935. First Edition. Illustrated with black and white drawings throughout. 8vo, original green cloth lettered in gilt over black on gilt ruled spine, upper copy with Hemingway signature facsimile in gilt. In the original decorated dustjacket. 284. A nice copy of this work, the cloth with some of the usual mellowing down to the spine panel and covers, the jacket with some minor shelf-wear or edge rubbing. SCARCE AND IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION IN THE ORIGINAL DUSTJACKET. An account of big-game hunting with digressions on literary matters; this work shows Hemingway’s further cultivation of the primitive and brutal levels contrasted with hollow culture, which he felt had cheated his generation. Hemingway would long carry the reputation of a master hunter as well as master writer. His love of the African landscape and his pursuit of African game is legendary and in his work he ‘brought into focus a great deal that is significant about human living and dying, and about the trade called literature’.
