        Autograph Signatures from 1936 Porgy & Bess Production

      1936. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Bold autograph signature in pencil "George Gershwin" on an album sheet, dated 1936 at the left in another hand, together with a second signature from the same album and apparently same occasion, being that of Anne Brown (signed "Anne Brown / 'Bess' / 'Porgy and Bess'"), creator of the role of Bess.  Porgy and Bess was first performed at the Colonial Theater in Boston on September 30th 1935. It opened in New York at the Alvin Theater on October 10th of that same year, starring Anne Brown as Bess and Todd Duncan as Porgy. The work includes a number of Gershwin's best-known and loved tunes, including Summertime and I Got Plenty o' Nuttin, both of which were among the pieces performed here.  After the Broadway run, a tour started on January 27, 1936, in Philadelphia and traveled to Pittsburgh and Chicago before ending in Washington, D.C., on March 21, 1936. During the Washington run, the cast—as led by Todd Duncan—protested segregation at the National Theatre. Eventually management gave in to the demands, resulting in the first integrated audience for a performance of any show at that venue. Given the dating of the Gershwin signature, we understand that these were both obtained during that historic run of the performance.

        Life of Texas Jack

      1936 - (TEXAS JACK) REED, Nathaniel. The Life of Texas Jack. (Tulsa: Tulsa Printing Co.), [1936]. Octavo, staple bound, original printed yellow paper wrappers; pp. 53, [1]. $1750.First edition of the memoirs of the notorious outlaw of the ‘Wild West,’ one of the few that lived to tell about his crimes, with three photographic portraits and three wood-engraved illustrations. An excellent copy in the fragile original wrappers of this now very scarce item.Nathaniel Reed, aka "Texas Jack," participated in robberies of stage coaches, banks and trains for about ten years before turning himself in to the authorities. However, his claims of having been part of the Dalton raid on Coffeyville and the Doolin fight at Ingalls are fabricated: "The author traveled over the country giving talks to interested listeners on the subject that crime does not pay and selling his little book for 25 cents. Traveled in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Arkansas. The old man was more or less a fourflusher though the records do show that he took part in several robberies" (Adams). Reed served about one year and was released; he became an evangelist and eventually settled in Omaha. This title was self-published, with proceeds going to support his preaching. Although original sales may have numbered in the thousands, only a handful of copies of this fragile item are known of at this time. Howes R133. Adams, Six-Guns 1831. Adams 150: 115. Small chip to upper corner of front wrapper, mild wear, a few very faint stains along spine fold, with small tape reinforcement at foot of spine. An extremely good copy of this scarce item, very well preserved in the fragile original wrappers. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Eigenh. musikalisches Albumblatt mit U.

      Paris, 1936. - 1 S. Qu.-kl.-8vo. Besonders schönes, einprägsames Zitat aus Strawinskys zweitem Ballett "Pétrouchka", das am 13. Juni 1911 im Théâtre du Châtelet zu Paris unter Pierre Monteux und in der Choreografie von Michail Fokin uraufgeführt worden war (vorausgegangen war "L'Oiseau de Feu", 25. Juni 1910, Opéra de Paris). Mit "Pétrouchka" setzte Strawinsky seine legendäre Zusammenarbeit mit Djagilevs "Ballets russes" fort, die 1913 mit der skandalumwitterten Uraufführung des "Sacre du Printemps" zu einem vorläufigen, auch durch den Ersten Weltkrieg bedingten Abschluss kam. - In Bleistift; mit kleinen Montagespuren verso.

        The General Theory of Employment Interest and Money.

      London: Macmillan and Co, Limited,, 1936. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, two line border to head and foot of covers in blind. Cloth a little darkened and soiled, slight spotting to edges of text block and endleaves, small abrasion to front fee endpaper, some ink and pencil side-ruling. A good copy. First edition, first impression. "The world-wide slump after 1929 prompted Keynes to attempt an explanation of, and new methods for controlling, the vagaries of the trade-cycle ? in his General Theory, he subjected the definitions and theories of the classical school of economics to a penetrating scrutiny and found them seriously inadequate and inaccurate" (PMM). His conclusion, namely that "the regulation of the trade-cycle - that is to say the control of booms and slumps, the level of employment, the wage-scale and the flow of investment - must be the responsibility of governments", permanently altered the terms of economic debate and considerations of the role of government in managing the economy (or not).

        Gone with the Wind (Signed First Edition)

      New York: Macmillan, 1936. First edition. Fine/Fine. First printing, May 1936, in first issue jacket. A Fine copy, signed by the author on the front end paper. The book is just about perfect with a bright yellow topstain, square binding and tight hinges, completely unread. Very slight discoloration to the cloth, mostly at the spine. Fine dust jacket is bright and unworn with only the slightest wear at the corners and base of the spine. Price clipped from lower corner of front flap and one 1/4 inch closed tear on the rear panel. Both book and jacket completely untouched by any repair or restoration. A spectacular copy complete with the author's distinctive signature. The last comparable copy we can recall was the Bruce Kahn copy (offered for $55,000 in 2009). The basis for the critically acclaimed, 1939 film starring Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh. Mitchell managed to create a book that is both an engaging romance (without being sentimental) as well as a sympathetic portrayal of the devastation to the Southern way of life in the wake of the Civil War. No other work of literature more fully captures the old Southern gentility than "Gone With the Wind." "This is beyond a doubt one of the most remarkable first novels produced by an American writer. It is also one of the best." (J. Donald Adams, New York Times Book Review July 5, 1936). Fine in Fine dust jacket.

        [Manila Galleon, Typescript]. "That Year's Galleon" (early title)

      S.l. (probably Santa Barbara, CA), not after 1936. 23 chapters + Epilogue, each individually paginated. Typewritten on "Superior Manifold - Esleeck Mfg Co" paper (8 1/2 x 11") This appears to be the only significant Cameron Rogers manuscript still in private ownership (the University of Oregon has five of them, for which see below). It is an early typescript of the novel "Manila Galleon," composed while the author's working title was "That Year's Galleon." The novel, a work of historical fiction, explores the Manila-Acapulco gallion trade, and is set in the Philippines in 1621. Among the characters are: Don Alonzo Fajardo y Tenza, the Governor; his disturbingly beautiful wife Dona Catalina Maria Sembrano; Don Juan de la Mesa y Suero, the captain of the Spanish galleon La Nuestra Senora de la Vida which sails from Manila to Acapulco. The work was published in 1936 by D. Appleton-Century Company, New York (consisting of 232 pages). William Rose Benet, in his review of the novel, mentions that "the tragic romance of the book, counterpointed by one of comic tragedy, unfolds speedily. [...] Effects both moving and beautiful (not to say also shrewd and comic) are achieved with laudable economy of means. [...] The work of an expert writer and contains no shoddy" (SOURCE: The Saturday Review, 8 Aug. 1936, p. 6). The paper stock of the present typescript was "Superior Manifold," manufactured in the 1920s by Esleeck Mfg. Co. of Turners Falls, Mass. "Superior Manifold" is mentioned in advertisements in the 1921 "Lockwood's Directory of the Paper and Stationary Trade," the 1922 "American Stationer" (vol. 90), the 1922 "American Printer and Lithographer" (vol. 74), and 1924 and 1925 issues of "The Rotarian." Further reference to Esleeck's "Superior Manifold" have not been forthcoming. Rogers (1900-1971) contributed to three Hollywood films in the 1930's and 1940's: "Cardinal Richelieu" (1935), "White Banners" (1938), and "Belle Starr" (1941). He was the son of noted poet and magazine editor Robert Cameron Rogers. His first wife was the writer Frances Colby, daughter of Bainbridge Colby (a former Secretary of State under Woodrow Wilson) and the novelist Natalie Sedgwick Colby. His second wife, screenwriter, Elisabeth Cobb, was the daughter of humorist, Irvin S. Cobb. Rogers lived in Santa Barbara, CA for most of his life (the present MS was given by the author to one of his Santa Barbara friends -- see below). His other works include "The Magnificent Idler," a fictional account of Walt Whitman (1926), "Colonel Bob Ingersoll" (1927), "Gallant Ladies" (1928), "The Legend of Calvin Coolidge" (1928), "Cyrano" (1929), "Oh Splendid Appetite!" (1932), "Flight Surgeon" (1940), "Trodden Glory: The Story of the California Poppy" (1949) and many articles, essays and reviews. Provenance: by gift to Lydia Bodrero (1902-2009) of Santa Barbara, CA (she was the wife of Ranieri Bourbon del Monte, 5th Prince of San Faustino) -- by descent to her Montino Bourbon del Monte, 6th Prince of San Faustino, Marchese del Monte Santa Maria (b. 1942) of Santa Barbara. COMMENT: Surviving manuscripts at the University of Oregon: "The Hours I Spent," "A Judge in Early Arcady," "A Melody in Minor," "A Prince of Peru," and "Steadfast in his Heart."

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1936 - 1936 Wisden Original Hardback

      1936. Hi, This lot is a 1936 Original Hardback Wisden in Very Good Condition, excellent for the year. It also had the added bonus of being a presentation copy, signed by WH Brookes (Editor) to future editor Norman Preston which makes the book very unique. Wisden chaaged materials in 1933 and the quality of the books suffered as a result, hence why 1933-1936 seem a lot more faded than the early 1920s Hardbacks. The gilt to the front and spine is ever so slightly fading as per the year and the boards are dulled, this book however is a lot better than an average 1936. Odd mark to the boards. Internally it is a nice and bright book, very yellow pastedowns and titlepage and clean inside. The hinges are strong. Old address sticker to the first page and removable post-it-note stating the endorsement. The previous owner had a bat bookmark inserted loosly froma paperback. Internally very good without restoration with an excellent photoplate.

        Ma Gouvernante, my nurse, mein Kindermädchen. Originalsilbergelatine-Abzug, s/w, rückseitig von Meret Oppenheim handschriftlich in Bleistift betitelt. Datiert und signiert. Mit dem Atelierstempel des Fotografen Albert Winkler.

      - 16x24,2 cm. Vergl. Curiger A22. - Eines der zentralen Werke der Künstlerin. Das Objekt wurde 1936 in der Galerie Marguerite Schulthess bei der ersten Einzelausstellung gezeigt und verschwand nach Angaben der Künstlerin bereits in den 30er Jahren. Meret Oppenheim schreibt auf der Rückseite der Fotografie: "Das Objekt existiert nicht mehr." Der vorliegende Abzug muss in den 60er Jahren nach einer Fotografie aus den 30er Jahren entstanden sein. Deshalb kommt der 1923 geborene Albert Winkler als Fotograf nicht in Betracht, obwohl er Meret Oppenheim sehr gut kannte. Winkler kam erst 1963 nach Bern. Wahrscheinlicher scheint, dass Winkler das Originalnegativ entwickelt hat. Für die Vermutung, dass die Fotografie des Objektes das im gleichen Jahr wie die berühmte Aufnahme vom "Frühstück in Pelz" entstand, auch von Man Ray stammt, fehlen Nachweise, obwohl das schwarz/weiss Bild perfekt ausgeleuchtet ist. Das heute bekannte Exemplar des Objektes im Moderna Museet in Stockholm ist ein Replikat, hergestellt für die Ausstellung der Künstlerin 1967 in Stockholm. "Ma gouvernante - My Nurse - Mein Kindermädchen is the artist's own title, and it is an essential element of the work. Oppenheim said that the white shoes reminded her of a nanny: "I was a small child, four or five, we had a young nanny. She dressed in white. Maybe she was in love and maybe she radiated a sensual atmosphere that I unconsciously registered, and maybe this was the reason that white-attired 'Elseli' left such a lasting impression on me." The tri-lingual title is evocative of the multilingual bourgeois circles of the early 20th century." - Wurde in 'et 3' als 21. Blatt abgedruckt.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1936 - 1936 Wisden Original Hardback

      1936. Hi, This lot is a 1936 Original Hardback Wisden in Very Good Condition, excellent for the year. It also had the added bonus of being a presentation copy, signed by WH Brookes (Editor) to future editor Norman Preston which makes the book very unique. Wisden chaaged materials in 1933 and the quality of the books suffered as a result, hence why 1933-1936 seem a lot more faded than the early 1920s Hardbacks. The gilt to the front and spine is ever so slightly fading as per the year and the boards are dulled, this book however is a lot better than an average 1936. Odd mark to the boards. Internally it is a nice and bright book, very yellow pastedowns and titlepage and clean inside. The hinges are strong. Old address sticker to the first page and removable post-it-note stating the endorsement. The previous owner had a bat bookmark inserted loosly froma paperback. Internally very good without restoration with an excellent photoplate.

        100% money;: Designed to keep checking banks 100% liquid; to prevent inflation and deflation; largely to cure or prevent depressions; and to wipe out much of the national debt

      Adelphi Co. Hardcover. B00085M6WC 1936 second 'revised' edition, Adelphi Company (NY), 5 5/8 x 8 inches tall blue cloth hardbound, no dust jacket, faded gilt lettering to spine, top page edges yellow, xxiv, 257 pp. Externally, not a handsome copy. Covers are moderately soiled, rubbed and edgeworn, with fraying at the spine caps and a half-inch edge tear to the top of the backstrip. Both front and rear boards are heavily water-stained to the fore edges, and both boards are very slightly bowed. Nicely inscribed, dated (June 1937) and signed by the author on the blank front free-endpaper. Authenticity of signature guaranteed in perpetuity. One-inch stain to the fore edge of the half title, title and contents pages, and quarter-inch edge tears to the top edge of the last two (blank) leaves of the book. Otherwise, apart from mild age toning and scattered very slight foxing to a few pages, a clean and unmarked copy. Works signed by Fisher - especially works on economics - are uncommon. ~EE~ Irving Fisher (1867-1947) was an American economist, statistician, inventor and Progressive social campaigner. He was one of the earliest American neoclassical economists, though his later work on debt deflation has been embraced by the Post-Keynesian school. Joseph Schumpeter described him as 'the greatest economist the United States has ever produced,' an assessment later repeated by James Tobin and Milton Friedman. This is the second edition of this important Fisher work - the first having been published the previous year - here extensively revised following the passing of the Omnibus Banking Act of 1935. In it, Fisher proposes the elimination of economic fluctuations by requiring that demand deposits be backed by a corresponding amount of cash, an idea which had its roots in the work of Leon Walras, Ludwig von Mises, and the Chicago School. Fisher made important contributions to utility theory and general equilibrium.He was also a pioneer in the rigorous study of intertemporal choice in markets, which led him to develop a theory of capital and interest rates. His research on the quantity theory of money inaugurated the school of macroeconomic thought known as 'monetarism.' Fisher was also a pioneer of econometrics, including the development of index numbers. Some concepts named after him include the Fisher equation, the Fisher hypothesis, the international Fisher effect, the Fisher separation theorem and Fisher market. Fisher's reputation has enjoyed a recent resurgence in neoclassical economics, particularly after his work was rediscovered in the late 1950s, and more widely due to an increased interest in debt deflation after the late-2000s recession. . Fair. 1936. Second Edition.

        Autograph Signatures from 1936 Porgy & Bess Production

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Bold autograph signature in pencil "George Gershwin" on an album sheet, dated 1936 at the left in another hand, together with a second signature from the same album and apparently same occasion, being that of Anne Brown (signed "Anne Brown / 'Bess' / 'Porgy and Bess'"), creator of the role of Bess.  <br style="">Porgy and Bess was first performed at the Colonial Theater in Boston on September 30th 1935. It opened in New York at the Alvin Theater on October 10th of that same year, starring Anne Brown as Bess and Todd Duncan as Porgy. The work includes a number of Gershwin's best-known and loved tunes, including Summertime and I Got Plenty o' Nuttin, both of which were among the pieces performed here.  After the Broadway run, a tour started on January 27, 1936, in Philadelphia and traveled to Pittsburgh and Chicago before ending in Washington, D.C., on March 21, 1936. During the Washington run, the castâ??as led by Todd Duncanâ??protested segregation at the National Theatre. Eventually management gave in to the demands, resulting in the first integrated audience for a performance of any show at that venue. Given the dating of the Gershwin signature, we understand that these were both obtained during that historic run of the performance.

        Portrait of My Wife

      A figurative painting of Rexroth's second wife, Marie (Kass) Rexroth. Rexroth's notes indicate the date and title of the painting, and include: "hair - orange, dress - green." Reminiscent of Matisse, the piece is not entirely representational, as the portrait shows distortions in the disposition of Marie's body (the angles of her legs and arms, the relation of Marie to the chair, and the chair to the room), and includes an abstract painting in the upper left corner, which carries a typical motif of Rexroth's work, a magnet turned on its side with two circles set in opposition Wax, silica, and pure decorator colors on wooden board, 15 5/8" wide x 17 3/4" high, ca. 1936, with notes on the back in white chalk: "Marie Rexroth", and the date "1935" or "1936", framed by Rexroth. Cracks in the paint in a few places, few flecks out of the red paint of the hair, a couple of tiny chips in the black of the dress, otherwise in fine condition.
