        Manuscrit autographe signé (1935), "Causerie littéraire. À propos des Universaux de Léon Daudet, Louis Guilloux : Le Sang Noir (NRF), Isabelle Rivière : Le Bouquet de roses rouges"

      - Manuscrit autographe signé, (1935), « Causerie littéraire. À propos des Universaux de Léon Daudet, Louis Guilloux : « Le Sang noir » (NRF), Isabelle Rivière « Le Bouquet de roses rouges » (Corrêa) », 5 pages in folio. « Il est un ouvrage auquel on ne peut pas ne pas penser devant le Sang noir. C’est le Voyage au bout de la nuit. On peut dire tout ce que l’on voudra contre et pour M. Céline. Il y avait en tout cas dans son oeuvre une vie que je ne retrouve jamais dans Le Sang noir » « La grippe m’a empêché, la semaine dernière, de parler des Universaux, comme je l’aurais voulu ( ) parmi les nombreux livres de Léon Daudet, celui-ci est un de ceux qui semblent le mieux correspondre à son tempérament, et qui me séduisent le plus. Sous l’influence vraisemblable de l’Université, nous perdions un peu trop l’habitude d’un genre littéraire pourtant très français : le genre qu’on peut appeler des « essais », comme Montaigne, ou des « cahiers » comme Péguy ( ) les plus grands livres de l’humanité sont toujours en désordre, mais ce désordre n’est qu’apparent. Ajoutons que les Universaux, rayonnant de bonne humeur, éclatant de verve et d’éclairs, sont peut-être l’ouvrage qui donnerait de Léon Daudet l’idée la plus complète. À travers les siècles, il cherche des ligues de feux, qui ne sont pas perceptibles à tous les yeux mortels ( ) de cet écrivain de nature et de race, je crois bien qu’il faut dire d’abord qu’il est un poète ( ) Peut-être les prix de décembre enfin décernés vont-ils nous laisser le loisir de lire. Je suis un peu attristé à considérer les piles d’ouvrages qui s’entassent autour de moi, je ne veux pas renoncer à les lire, et le temps passe ( ) Parmi les candidats de cette année, le mieux placé parut quelque temps M. Louis Guilloux, avec Le Sang Noir. Aujourd’hui des placards de publicité nous avertissent ( ) que M. Guilloux « n’a pas eu le prix Goncourt », on veut dire par là que son livre était beaucoup trop beau pour une récompense officielle. J’ai lu ce gros roman, et avec quelque peine. N’en déplaise à ses admirateurs, dont plusieurs sont gens de goût et de bon conseil, il me semble voir là le type même du faux chef d’oeuvre. Avec tous les caractères que peut revêtir cette production en 1935. ( ) Il est un ouvrage auquel on ne peut pas ne pas penser devant le Sang noir. C’est le Voyage au bout de la nuit. On peut dire tout ce que l’on voudra contre et pour M. Céline. Il y avait en tout cas dans son oeuvre une vie que je ne retrouve jamais dans Le Sang noir. M. Guilloux, Lettre autographe signée du populisme, semble avoir découvert les vertus littéraires de la révolte, les gros mots, de la satire amère et injuste, tout un arsenal de recettes, tout un répertoire. Il a soigneusement noté sur son petit carnet les procédés qui font d’un écrivain honnête et ennuyeux un puissant romancier ( ) haut en couleurs, et prêt à scandaliser le bourgeois. Et, après avoir réglé son papier, il s’est mis à la tâche. Seulement, le bourgeois n’est pas scandalisé. Le bourgeois s’ennuie, voilà tout ( ) Si l’on a parlé de M. Guilloux pour ce prix Goncourt, on a parlé de Mme Isabelle Rivière pour le prix Femina. J’ai lu Le bouquet de roses rouges avec un plaisir singulier. En un certain sens, je pourrai dire que presque tout me paraît blâmable dans ce livre : l’abus de la littérature d’édification, une certaine noblesse dans le style, parfois une trop grande joliesse, et surtout l’ensemble de ces bons sentiments qui, suivant la phrase célèbre de M. Gide, ne produisant jamais que de la mauvaise littérature. Et cependant, à travers ce long livre fleuri et pur, le charme de ces bons sentiments agit peu à peu. Il me semble pas qu’on ait été beaucoup plus juste pour ce livre qu’on ne l’a été, il y a quelques mois, pour le roman posthume de Jacques Rivière, Florence. Il faut croire qu’il est de noms difficiles à porter. Cela n’empêche pas Florence d’être une oeuvre assurément imparfaite, mais curieuse et attirante, et Le Bouquet de roses r

        Out of Bounds: the education of Giles Romilly and Esmond Romilly

      [London]: Hamish Hamilton 1935 - Spine slightly faded, some spotting of edges and prelims; dustwrapper rather worn, with some internal tape repairs. "Written with vigour and in accurate detail, [the book] affords an account, at once enlightening and provocative, of public and preparatory school life. The authors make a sweeping attack on the basis of personal experience, but they are sentimentalists no more of the 'isn't fagging wicked?' than of the 'Old School Tie' variety . . . Giles Romilly is eighteen, and Esmond sixteen, years old" (publisher's blurb). It begins: "The first days of going to school are always memorable; every detail of preparation, departure, arrival, stands out clearly in the mind for years afterwards. I can remember no day so vividly as that on which I first went to Seacliffe School, Seaford, unless perhaps the first day at Wellington College, Berkshire. I can remember what kind of day it was - warm and stuffy, like the inside of a taxicab - and what time I got up in the morning, and what I had for lunch." Aged 18, Esmond married Jessica Mitford.

      New York: Macmillan Company, 1935. Third Edition. Very good. Octavo, 11 volmes plus bibliography and supplemental volume (13 volumes total). Overall a very good set in the original green gilt-stamped cloth. Spines not faded, but several volumes have a few nicks to the spine ends. Hinges just starting or just cracked in a few volumes. Internally quite clean and bright. The supplemental volume, "Aftermath," was published in 1937, and is in good (only) condition, with scuffing and wear to the front board and a relatively (to the other volumes) darkened spine. Still, a nice collection of this important set.

        Noel. Christmas Echoes Down the Ages, Recaptured by Robert K. Shaw

      Worcester: Achille J. St. Onge, 1935. (30)ff. One of 278 copies. This copy is unnumbered and inscribed "with high regard" by the author to Mrs. J. H. Soliday, i.e. H. Marion Soliday, a noted collector and member of the LXIVMOS. With her daughter and son-in-law, she wrote "Chats About Miniature Books," a true miniature book about miniature books. Also included with this copy are two sample leaves of a proposed second edition of the book that was never published. The leaves show two different settings of the title page and first two text pages, dated 1957. Noel was produced by the same companies that printed and bound the disastrous Inaugural Address of Thomas Jefferson in 1943, of which all but 33 copies were destroyed by St. Onge because of their poor quality. It is possible that St. Onge planned to republish Noel in a larger edition using a different printer and binder, but never completed the project. A collection of poetic tributes to Christmas, Noel was written by Robert K. Shaw, a librarian at the Worcester Public Library and microbibliophile whose article on miniature books led St. Onge to publish this, his first miniature book, in 1935. Frontispiece of the Madonna and child by Bernardino dei Conti, courtesy of the Worcester Art Museum, tipped in. An extremely fine, crisp copy in full red leather with the title in gilt on the front cover. A unique example of one of the most sought after St. Onge titles. (Massmann 1; Welsh 6350; Bondy, p. 169; MBC I: No. 3, p. 5; Bradbury, p. 251). (2 7/16 by 1 11/16; 62x44mm).

As Business Manager from 1920-1945, Barrow's Yankees won 14 American League pennants and 10 World Series.Southpaw Vitautris Casimirus Tamulis (1911-1974) began his major league career with the New York Yankees on September 25, 1934, hurling 5-0 shutout in Philadelphia against Connie Macks' Athletics. Vito allowed just seven singles. Lou Gehrig hit his 48th home run of the season. In 1934, Gehrig won his only Triple Crown, leading the major leagues in home runs (49), batting average (.363), and RBIs (165). After the 1934 season, Babe Ruth signed as a free agent with the Boston Braves.From BaseballLibrary.com about Vito Tamulis: "The fun-loving junkballer couldn't stick with the staid Yankees despite a 10-5 rookie 1935 season [for which he was paid $3000 according to this contract]. He landed in Brooklyn, where fans loved his encounters with Cardinals slugger Johnny Mize. Tamulis would come halfway to the plate, telling Mize he would strike him out with his rainbow change. Mize would often take futile swings at the floater.""

        The Good Earth" by Pearl S. Buck

      Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Corporation, Culver City, CA 1935 - 4to, 119 mimeograph pages, brad bound in pale blue wrappers, stamped "Complete" and with the MGM Script Dept label on front. Very early version of the screen adaptation of Buck's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel -- it would also propel her to the Nobel Prize for Literature. Connelly (whose name is misspelled as "Connolly" on the front wrapper) was among the early writers to attempt the adaptation from the stage version. There were some twenty writers ultimately involved before the film, directed by Sidney Franklin (with an uncredited assist from Victor Fleming) and starring Paul Muni and Luise Rainer, opened in 1937. The film was nominated for Academy Awards in most major categories, including Best Picture and Director, and won two: one for Luise Rainer as Best Actress (it was the second of Rainer's back-to-back Oscars, a feat unmatched for many years and which led ironically to the abrupt end of her film career -- she would live on in Europe until 2014, when she died at age 104) and one for cinematographer Karl Freund. This is an early, and rather rough, shooting script. On a few pages there are pencil annotations in a mixture of German and English. We have not been able to compare handwriting to determine whether it might be that of Rainer or Freund. Edges rumpled, staining, especially to front wrapper, few edge nicks; apart from soil to first three or four pages, internally clean. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
