        California Arts & Architecture - Six Early Issues

      Western States Publishing Company. Los Angeles. Western States Publishing Company. 1936 - 1939 Bound in pictorial wrappers. Collection is cased in a custom flexible portfolio. Folio. 13" x 10". Illustrated with photographs, detailed plans, period advertiaing, etc. California Arts & Architecture was formed in 1929 by a merger of Pacific Coast Architect, established 1911, and California Southland, established 1918. Architecturally it was devoted to eclectic residential design-Tudor, Spanish Colonial, Mediterranean, Georgian, California amorphous. It preferred classic in larger projects, and now and then Art Deco (the Richfield Building, Bullocks Wilshire, both in Los Angeles) In 1930 it was a substantial magazine. Issues ran from 70 to 80 pages with lots of advertising. The editor was then Harris Allen, AIA, and there were familiar names among its contributors and advisors-Roland Coates, Sumner Spaulding, Ralph Flewelling, Wallace Neff. By 1933 the Great Depression had starved it down to 30 pages and subsequently into bankruptcy where John Entenza found it in 1938. Publication in Arts & Architecture became a portal to national and international recognition many for West coast Architects and a showcase for their cutting edge modernism. The magazine morphed into Arts & architecture in 1944. Arguably its most notable achievement was its Case Study House Program which, for 20 years advocated and influenced each evolutionary advancement in American residential design.A rare gathering of early, pre- A & A issues. All issues present usual sporadic soiling,chipping,light staining and several pencil markings to covers. Usual wear to spines with some minor splitting and chipping but all well attatched. One spine has been earlier strenthened with cello-tape. Several incidences of innocuous pencil annotation to interiors. Issues have a bit of a musty odor typical of old magazines. All in all, a Very Good collection.

        The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money

Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with the lightest of wear and toning. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional copy. The General Theory ranks with Smith's Wealth of Nations as an intellectual event and with Malthus' Essay on Population as a guide for public policy.

        Small Archive Documenting Camp-life at the Dan Beard Camp, Boys Scout Troop 1 in Pike County, Pennsylvania, 1936-1938

      Dan Beard Camp Near Hawley, Pennsylvania, 1936. An exceptionally scarce collection of memorabilia and ephemera from Daniel Carter Beard's summer camp. Beard, one of the founders of the Boy Scouts of America built the camp on the site of his hunting lodge, which was erected in 1883. He operated the camp from the early 1920s until 1939. Camp activities and awards were based on those in Beard's Handbook for the Sons of Daniel Boone, however campers also earned Scouting rank and merit badges as the campers formed Pike County, Pennsylvania BSA Troop #1. The collection includes 1) an 8" x 10" photograph of Beard in uniform signed "Dan Beard," 2) a typed letter on official, illustrated Boy Scouts of America letterhead signed "Daniel C. Beard," 3) five multi-color camp award certificates signed "Daniel C. Beard," 4) a number of official camp letters and records regarding one of the campers, Courtland Brown, 5) four American Red Cross first aid and life saving cards awarded to Courtland Brown at the Dan Beard Camp, 6) two 8" x 10" photographs of campers, one showing them in formation and one showing them engaged in craft activities, 7) four 3.5" x 6" photographs of campers and their tents, 8) a beaded "buckskin badge" totem, 9) two postcards of Camp Lenape, which I believe succeeded the Dan Beard Camp after it closed, and 10) newspaper articles regarding Beard's 88th birthday, his death, and his funeral. All of the photographs, signed letter, certificates, and postcards are in very nice shape. Some of the other documents have marginal insect predation. The certificates and camp photographs have scrapbook page remnants on the reverse. . Ephemera. Very Good.

        Test Tube Baby

      New York: Godwin, Publishers. Good. 1936. First Edition. Hardcover. (no dust jacket) [ex-rental library book, marked only with stamped library name on both endpapers ("Property of Green Tree Library"), moderate external wear, front hinge a little weak, spotting/soiling to covers]. The second of three pulp novels published published by Fuller under his own name in the 1930s (he claimed in his autobiography to have written many more, under a variety of pseudonyms). The story, as Fuller explained it, has to do with a young man who had been "conceived scientifically, then brought up by his mother to be the ideal son." However, Mom wasn't counting on her grown-up boy eventually learning some additional facts of life from an amoral young lady named Peggy, "a fascinating wench who may not have eaten her spinach but certainly knew her onions." A rarity for sure, and like Fuller's first novel, "Burn, Baby, Burn!," a vivid embodiment of the future film director's pulp-fiction-tabloid-journalism sensibility. .

        The Princess Comes Across (Original screenplay for the 1936 film)

      Los Angeles, CA: Paramount Pictures, 1936. Draft script for the 1936 film. A very interesting early draft of the script, with a cast page that includes George Raft, who was replaced by Fred MacMurray late in pre-production. Raft left the production when Ted Tetzlaff was announced as the director, as Tetzlaff had caused Lombard to outshine Raft in the duo's previous film, "Rumba." MacMurray's placement against Lombard was fortuitous, as the pair (who had made "Hands Across the Table" the previous year) went on to make "Swing High, Swing Low" and "True Confessions" after this film.& & One of the most cynical and underrated screwball comedies, with Lombard and MacMurray at the peak of their speed-talking greatness. Tightly wound into the story of Lombard posing as the (fake) Swedish Princess Olga and MacMurray's no-nonsense, accordion-playing bandleader with a shady past is a rather dense murder mystery that plays out in tandem with the screwball structure.& & Recently rebound in tan cloth, with the original blue front wrapper adhered to the front board. Front wrapper shows a date of February 4th, 1936. Title page present, dated February 4, 1936. 141 leaves, mimeograph, with blue revision pages throughout, dated variously between 2-7-36 and 2-14-36. Pages about Fine, boards about Fine.& & Harvey, pp. 214-215.
