        Life of an American Workman

      Private Printing, New York 1937 - Gus Neubert was likely the only person to ever fire Walter Percy Chrysler (1875-1940). Yet forty years later in his autobiography, Chrysler shares the details of that humiliation in 1895 when he was but 20 years old. Only a few days went by before he was returned to his apprenticeship in the Union Pacific shops in Ellis, Kansas, but he had learned a valuable lesson. Chrysler who went on to become one of the most successful and influential businessmen in U.S. history not only remembered Neubert in his book, but presented his old friend with number 177 of this limited edition of 500 copies. This copy inscribed to Neubert by Chrysler on January 28, of 1938. Deluxe pebbled leather binding with gilt stamped signature of Chrysler on top cover, and smoothed leather on spine with gilt stamped lettering. Top edge is gilded, and others remain un-cut. Leather is rubbed on edges, and spine. There is a one inch square of discoloration on top cover where a label appears to have been removed taking the black dye with it. Recipient has penciled notes on the blank front free end page, and a few in text. Volume remains tight and otherwise clean and intact. Inscription is bright and bold.

        Federal Theatre Bulletin / Magazine

      Federal Theatre Project / Works Progress Administration, New York, New York 1937 - Red cloth library binding; Approx. 200 pp.; Profusely illustrated in bw. Seven bulletins of the Federal Theatre Project, a Works Progress Administration New Deal project designed to employ out-of-work artists, writers, and directors while providing art and entertainment for poor families; The FTP became most well known (and in some cases reviled) for their Living Newspaper plays--plays based on newspaper articles, often with a leftist bent; Includes articles about current projects and issues within the FTP, including creating plays, ballets, and the like, costuming, audience reactions, and more; A fascinating look at an early twentieth century government program. Includes several colored lithographs. Contained in this bound volume (labeled Vol. 1 NO. 1-6; Vol. 2 NO. 1-5 on the spine) are the following issues: Vol. 1 No. 1, third printing Feb. 25, 1936; Vol. 1 No. 2 Dec. 1935; Vol. 1 No. 3, no date cover broken off towards spine; Vol. 1 No.4 (beginning the larger format of this publication) March 1936; Vol. 1 No. 5 May 1936 (may be missing front cover if issued); Vol. 1 No. 6 [no date but eighth month, may also be missing front cover if issued). Vol. 2 No. 1 no date, may be missing a front cover if issued; Vol. 2 No. 2 no date but library stamp from Nov. 1936, may be missing front cover if issued; Vol. 2 No. 3 no date but appears to be circa January 1937; Vol. 2 No. 4 may be missing front cover if issued, no date, but library stamp of March 1937; Vol. 2 No.5, no date by library entered date of June 1937, may be missing front cover if issued. It is possible that each cover of these later issues was a colored ithograph, and thus removed by this particular library for archival purposes, but this seems unlikely. However, each of these issue does have a rear cover of thicker, sturdier paper which is usually matched with a similar type of cover material on the front cover, hence the statement that front covers *may be missing* from these issues. The first three issues of Volume 1 are very cheaply produced on what could be guessed to be a mimeograph machine, and the sheets are fragile and exhibit minor loss here and there.Though the masthead on the top of the front page says this is a Bulletin, the rear cover of the later issues state that this is a magazine available for sale at many listed locations. Good (Ex-lib., heavy markings; Some pages worn around edges; Cloth worn at extremities) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Cahiers d'Art, 4-5 - Joan Miro "Aidez Espagne"

      Paris: Editions Cahiers d'Art, 1937. Original. Softcover. Miro pochoir in MINT condition. The magazine is not: Covers are detached but present. Spine is missing, and signatures are separating. Pages themselves are, for the most part, clean but with light age toning to margins and light wear to some pages at top edge. One page of bw illustrations (front/back) has been removed and a section cut off, the rest laid back between pages.. Original color pochoir, red/yellow/blue/white/black, on Arches paper, with matching but blank facing page/cover, bound into the magazine. There is a caption, in black script, at the bottom of the plate. Magazine wraps are celery green/blue (front) and white (back), both with black lettering. 164 pp. with the color Miro, and otherwise, bw illustrations throughout. This particular issue is the 12th year of the periodical. This issue contains, Pablo Picasso: Guernica - Histoire d'un tableau de Picasso" by Christian Zervos and other articles about Picasso, Franco (Spanish Dictator), an article by Paul Eluard, and the fabulous Miro pochoir, along with relevant articles. The contents are full of bw images of Picasso's work. The Miro, however, is the pride and star of this issue. The vivid-color print was a statement opposing the rise of Facism in Spain. The work was created specifically for this periodical but originally meant to be th design for a French postage stamp to raise financial support for the Spanish Republic (thus the "1 FR" in the image). The stamp, however, never was created. The caption, in French, translates as: "In the present conflict I see the decrepit forces of the Facists, and on the other side the people, whose vast creative resources will give Spain a strength that will astonish the world." (paraphrased from the description of Galerie Michael, theirs derived from the art blog, Hyperallergic) A very scarce copy of this iconic and atypical work by Miro, especially in this condition.

The Campbell - Ewald Company" Campbell-Ewald held the advertising account for Chevrolet from 1919 to 2010, one of the longest advertising agency -- corporate client relationships in US business history. Here then is offered this [evidently] unique Chevrolet Advertising Exhibit guest book and photo album which documents the above announced exhibit, and which provides an invaluable historical record of the entire Chevrolet advertising campaign for 1937, with proposed slogans, images, dealer posters, and photos. The 119 guest signatures record the presence of a virtual who’s who of General Motors, Chevrolet Motor Division, and Campbell-Ewald at the day, including C.P. Fisken the Chevrolet Motors Advertising Head, Joseph H. Neebe, Head of Campbell-Ewald Company during the 1930s, and Marvin Coyle, the Chevrolet General Manager who steered the company through the worst years of the Great Depression. The 10 glossy photos capture & record all the print ads, magazine ads, dealer brochures, dealer announcements, promotional materials, and spectacular photographs showing the Chevrolet worker, dealer, customer & product. Such items include the dealer posters extolling the virtues of 85 Horsepower and peak economy, Knee-Action Chevrolet, and how Chevrolet was the Only Complete Car Priced so Low for the car-buying public. In addition, the promotional guest book includes all the vote tallies by attendees, showing those exhibits, newspapers, magazines, photographs, and outdoor advertising they felt was most compelling of those displayed. A fascinating glipse into the workings of the pre-MadMen world of automotive advertising.
