        Calls, Sounds and Merchandise of the Peking Street Peddlers

      Beijing,,: The Camel Bell [overprinted with: The Peking Bookshop], 25th year of the Republic of China, i.e., 1936.. Oblong quarto, printed in Chinese style on double leaves, with 61 coloured lithograph plates and 16 tipped-in photographic illustrations, a paper pattern and a diagram; original silk-covered boards in fine condition; 1947 ownership inscription on front endpaper. First edition of this delightful study of Beijing street peddlers; a significant resource for the study of a disappeared way of life.As Feng Yi has noted (The sound of images: Peddlers' calls and tunes in Republican Peking, 2008, online resource), Constant's book was the first collection of such images to be published. Constant's work and Qi Rushan's ?????? ('Gudu shiyue tukao', A pictorial study of city music in the ancient capital), also published in 1936, 'are probably the only two such records on peddlers, except for short series of images and notices in Peking's popular newspapers... One can find in the press and in various publications this sense that something had been or was about to be lost in Peking's culture, and that it was time to make a record of it before it became history... The first collection of images on peddlers was published by Victor Samuel Constant. He prepared this work for an M.A. degree at the California College in China and published it in 1935 under the title Calls, sounds and merchandise of the Peking street peddlers. The author states that his work includes the most important and most common peddlers who went around Peking streets. Sixty-five peddlers are presented in the book (4 in photographs), with a description of their calls, characteristic sounds and what they have to sell or offer as service...'. As Constant says of his own work, 'Some call out their wares in a musical voice or song calculated to please the hearer. Others have a loud or discordant cry which grates on the nerves as though the devil himself had something to sell.'The coloured lithographs all take a double form with an image of the peddler accompanied by another depiction of his wares or the devices used to accompany his call. The photographs depict actual peddlers in street performances.

June Roberts, a Hollywood hairdresser who worked with Hepburn on a number of movies, was with her at the time Rand presented the book and Hepburn gave it to Roberts.

        ARCHIVE consisting of 1 AUTOGRAPHED LETTER SIGNED (ALS), 1 AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED (ANS), and 1 TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS)

      Letter. Fine. Fine, early letters to Cornell University professor and artist Walter King Stone SIGNED as "Andy" and "Andy White" from the author of CHARLOTTE'S WEB and STUART LITTLE. A one- page typed letter about a Stone painting, in part: "When the landlady puts on a violin record downstairs, I brush typewriters, manuscripts, soiled shirts, tobacco cans, and newspapers to one side, place my feet luxuriously upon the dresser, and gaze long and wistfully down your blue valley, and at your little snow-covered house with the two lights, and at your nice little stars above the lovely blue mountains. And I ponder imponderable thoughts, and dream of astounding adventures which come to me when I explore the valley, and climb the mountains." The two-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED and dated 16 October on NEW YORKER stationery is likely from 1936 as it refers to an article White published in THE SATURDAY EVENING POST, "You Can't Resettle Me? A Defense of New York City by a Stubborn Inhabitant" (SEP, Vol. CCIX, 10 Oct. 1936). In part: "The only reaction I've gotten from Post readers so far is from a sad little woman who lives in Willow Street, Hoboken. She said it wouldn't take much to induce her to leave New York for the country. 'I got as far as Hempstead one time,' she said, 'and it was like heaven.'" Finally there is a Christmas card "from Katharine and Andy White" with a color photograph of a boy to the widow of Stone with a short but lovely note by White.

"In 1911, Bugbee got her first [and ultimately, only] newspaper job with the New York Herald (which later became the New York Herald Tribune). BugbeeÕs first important newspaper assignment was to cover a weeks-long march of suffragists from New York City to Albany. Her feminist ideals were reinforced in her founding of the Newspaper WomenÕs Club of New York. Bugbee was one of a handful of prominent female reporters who sought to expand the role of women in the male-dominated world of journalism that existed when she began her career. She was best known for her intimate coverage of Eleanor Roosevelt, beginning in 1933Ñamidst the early days of President Franklin D. RooseveltÕs terms of officeÑand ending with a reminiscence of the former First Lady, written on the day of her death in 1962." [Walker]. Bugbee wrote 5 titles in this series published as part of the Dodd Mead Career Books, of which this was her first. . Frontispiece.

Walter Joseph Phillips (October 25, 1884 – July 5, 1963) was an English-born Canadian painter and woodcutter, acclaimed as one of Canada's most famous printmakers and for popularizing the colour woodcut in the style of the Japanese. His artistic career spanned from the 1900s through the 1940s, during which time his work was exhibited throughout North America and Great Britain. In 1940 he was asked to become a resident artist at the Banff Centre, then known as the Banff School of Fine Arts, where he played an important role in the development of their visual arts program- It's Walter Phillips Gallery, which focuses on contemporary art, is named after him. The Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta holds an extensive collection of Phillips works and a research archive..

        Le cirque *

      Au Verseau, Lausanne (1936). - Broché 27 x 22, couverture imprimée rempliée. Bel exemplaire de ce livre un peu fragile, deuxième édition onze ans après la première. L'agréable typographie, mise en page avec un rien d'audace, est aimablement prolongée par les sept hors texte; la huitième composition, qui nous a quelque peu perturbé, se trouve être la vignette de titre. L'imagerie, très travaillée dans le détail, représente divers personnages et numéros des plus typiquesCe texte admirable dédié à Richard Heyd, non repris dans les oeuvres complètes et qui est resté d'une diffusion plutôt restreinte (les deux premières éditions n'en totalisent pas 350 exemplaires) est une sorte de réflexion poignante sur la solitude humaine, révélée dans la foule par la venue d'un petit cirque en ville.Notre exemplaire comporte, exceptionnellement, la suite des 7 hors texte sur Chine, habituellement réservée aux 10 exemplaires de tête.Un illustré de Ramuz très réussi, sur un troisième papier qui a beaucoup plus de corps (et de classe) que le dernier, déjà bien rare et disponible aussi sur demande, broché ou sous ravissante demi reliure signée de Semet & Plumelle. [Bringolf 32a] Première édition illustrée. L'un des 40 exemplaires numérotés sur Hollande, outre 10 Chine nominatifs signés avec suite et 5 planches refusées sur Japon, 20 Japon et 155 vélin teintés.

        The Gilt Kid; There Ain't No Justice; You're In the Racket, Too

      London: Jonathan Cape,, 1936–7. 3 volumes, octavo. Original yellow cloth, titles to spines in turquoise. With the dust jackets. Ticket of the Dutch department store Magasin Du Nord to each front pastedown. Excellent copies in the dust jackets with very light wear to the extremities. First edition, first impressions of the first three novels by the undeservedly obscure James Curtis, whose works rivalled those of his contemporaries Graham Greene and Christopher Isherwood. Curtis, after a middle class upbringing, embraced leftist politics and turned to the underworld, writing novels about criminals, prostitutes, and boxers. After the 1930s he began a slide into obscurity, and today is one of British literature's great "missing persons". These novels are scarce in jackets, and a set in this condition is a rarity.
