Mit Italiens Kriegseintritt 1940 stellte man den Liniendienst nach Nordamerika ein. Das Schiff kehrte im Frühjahr 1940 von seiner letzten zivilen Fahrt über den Atlantik zurück und lag dann gut getarnt außer Dienst im Hafen von Triest. Am 8. September 1944 ankerte die Rex nahe Triest, als sie von Aufklärern der Royal Air Force entdeckt und aus der Luft in Brand geschossen wurde. Das Schiff brannte vier Tage, bis es sank.- Die CONTE DI SAVOIA, benannt nach dem Haus Savoyen, wurde in Triest gebaut und lief 1932 vom Stapel. Bis 1940 war die CONTE DI SAVOIA im Dienst der Linie. Im Anschluss wurde sie als Truppentransporter im Zweiten Weltkrieg eingesetzt und bei einem Luftangriff am 11. September 1943 versenkt. 1945 wieder gehoben, bis 1950 betrieben um dann weitere fünf Jahre später verschrottet zu werden. Reklame, Werbung

        Their Eyes Were Watching God

      Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA: J.B. Lippincott Company, 1937. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 286 pp. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Original orange cloth lettered in black. Corners bumped, fraying to base of spine, light soiling to cloth.Small ink inscription to front free endpaper. Without the scarce dust jacket. In a protective cover. First edition of Zora Neale Hurston's lyrical account of a poor black girl's transformation into an independent woman. Their Eyes Were Watching God received mixed reviews upon publication, and remained out of print for decades, until Alice Walker's 1975 essay "Looking for Zora" sparked a revival of interest in Hurston's work. Their Eyes Were Watching God is now the most widely reprinted novel by any Harlem Renaissance writer, occupying a unique place in discussions of modernist fiction, feminist writing and African-American folklore. A very good example of a fragile book, much nicer than usually found.

      1937 - CAIN, James M. Serenade. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1937. Octavo, original black cloth decorated in silver, original dust jacket. $2000.First edition of Cain’s bold second novel, book and striking dust jacket designed by W. A. Dwiggins, warmly inscribed by the author, “To Dora Einzig, with love and kisses, James M. Cain, July 15, 1938.”Exploring many of the same themes as his acclaimed first novel The Postman Always Rings Twice (1934), this novel was “daring for its period in its presentation of a bisexual hero” (Encyclopedia of Literature, 196). Cain would recall, “This story goes back to my try-to-be-a-singer days… It cooked until 1937, when I went to Mexico and got it over with” (University of Maryland, Cain Collection). “A complex and bravura blend of exotica, opera and murder… Serenade was well-reviewed and remains widely admired. Some people consider it Cain’s best book” (Smiley & Bell, 41). nfluential book artist William Addison Dwiggins designed both the volume and its dust jacket, which on this copy is printed with red as the dominant color; no priority established. “Only rarely was Dwiggins involved with dust wrappers, and this was one of his best efforts” (Smiley & Bell, 41). Owner signature.Faintest foxing to front free endpaper. Small and light marginal staining to several leaves, seldom affecting text. A few minor abrasions to fresh, bright boards, gilt decorations quite bright and attractive. Fragile original dust jacket with mild edge-wear and modest toning. A very good copy, scarce inscribed.

        [George VI in Scottish Regimental Uniform]

      1937. Mezzotint. Proof before letters. Signed in pencil in bottom left corner of plate. Title space uncleaned. Printed on thick wove paper. In excellent condition. 23 3/4 x 15 3/4 inches. A striking mezzotint portrait of King George VI in traditional Scottish dress by Henry Macbeth-Raeburn's, the celebrated Scottish engraver. This superb portrait of the King appears to have never been published. It is a strong depiction of the king greatly honored for his leadership and example through World War II and an excellent example of Macbeth-Raeburn's mastery of the art of mezzotint portraiture,as practiced in the late 18th century. Henry Macbeth-Raeburn was a noted Scottish painter and mezzotint engraver active in Edinburgh during the 1920's. He was a member of the Royal Academy and the Royal Society of Painters, Etchers, and Engravers. He is known today for his stylish mezzotints after celebrated eighteenth and nineteenth century portraits, which reproduced with accuracy and finesse the glory of these earlier masters. He had a penchant for the paintings of Reynolds, Gainsborough, and Sargent and produced many fine prints after their celebrated works.

        AND TO THINK THAT I SAW IT ON MULBERRY STREET

      SEUSS, DR.. SEUSS,DR. AND TO THINK THAT I SAW IT ON MULBERRY STREET. NY: Vanguard Press (1937 Second printing). 4to (8 1/2 x 11"), pictorial boards, Fine in dust wrapper (Marco's shorts are blue on dw and book). This is a remarkable copy with none of the edge wear usually found and with just a touch of toning on the white paper spine. The dust wrapper has minimal soil and a few small tears but is one of the nicest we've seen. This was Seuss' first book for children, brightly illustrated in full color and this copy is SIGNED BY SEUSS (on verso of free endpaper). It's interesting that by the second printing the price on the dust wrapper had already gone up to $1.25 from the original $1.00. If you can't buy a first printing, this is a great alternative to add to a Seuss collection.

        Marcel Pagnol on the set of "Le femme du boulanger" [The Baker's Wife] (1938)

      N.p.: N.p., 1937. Vintage double weight photograph from the 1938 film. A candid, on-the-set photograph by the film's credited still photographer, Roger Corbeau, of a cafe scene featuring the film's principal character (actor Raimu), with the camera crew just to the left, in the shadows, the borders of the studio set clearly visible. With Roger Corbeau's photo credit ("PHOTO ROGER CORBEAU") at the bottom left of the frame. On the verso is a rubber stamp for the Cinémonde Archives. An extraordinary "fourth wall" shot, demonstrating at once the method and the magic of Pagnol's filmmaking, as well as his relentless interest in provincial life in France. In this film, a new baker, Aimable (Raimu) settles down in a small French village. His wife Aurelie is beautiful and much younger than he. She departs with a shepherd the night after Aimable produces his first breads. Aimable is so afflicted that he cannot work anymore. The villagers, who initially laugh at his cuckoldry, soon take the matter very seriously (they want the bread), and organize a plan to find Aurelie and to bring her back to the bakery and her husband. In a custom museum-quality frame, archivally mounted, with UV glass. 9.25 by 7 inches. Four tiny single pinholes at the corners, within the white marginal border. Near Fine overall.
