      Boston and New York, 1937. With numerous examples of Smith's art, including two watercolor studies for his November, 1932, football cover of The Sportsman magazine. 1 vols. A few minor wrinkles, folds, and an occasional tear, else in uniformly fine condition. From the estate of Daniel Rochford. With numerous examples of Smith's art, including two watercolor studies for his November, 1932, football cover of The Sportsman magazine. 1 vols. Archive of a Sportsman Magazine Artist. An extremely interesting archive, chronicling the personal friendship and professional relationship of two colorful individuals. During Daniel Rochford's five-year tenure as Managing Editor of The Sportsman, Harold Smith did a number of small black and white drawings for the magazine, and at least one cover, of a stylized formation of football players, two watercolor studies of which form part of this collection. Rochford left the magazine in 1935 to enter the public relations field, subsequently joining Standard Oil of New Jersey, and, until Smith's death in 1969, gave the artist a number of Esso commissions for brochures and film strips, as well as other work. The archive includes approximately 35 ALS from Smith (some 65 pages), and two post cards, about 30 carbons of letters from Rochford, mostly dating from the 1940s on Esso matters, plus some other correspondence. In addition, included in Smith's art works are are nine pencil sketches for 1930s political cartoons, two pencil advertisement roughs for Mt. Tremblant ski area and four watercolor skiing sketches, nine sheets of pencil sketches, possibly for a book or article, eight amusing ink on tissue sketches for Esso publications, one black and white and four watercolor caricatures of the artist and others, and a particularly delightful 18 x 24 sheet of 19 watercolor scenes illustrating a 1946 visit Smith paid to the Rochfords to do their portraits. In his last years, Rochford regretted that distance and circumstance prevented the possibility of he and Smith collaborating on a book. It is a regret the viewer of this archive will share. A SPLENDID COLLECTION.

        Addresses of the President of the United States on the Occasion of His Visit to South America, November & December 1936

      United States Printing Office, [Washington, D.C.] 1937 - First edition, one of 75 (but probably one of only 7 in this binding). 97, [3] pp. 1 vols. 4to. A sumptously produced White House Christmas book, commemorating FDR's nearly month-long diplomatic mission to promote "hemispheric solidarity" with South America. The book was issued in an uncertain, though undoubtedly strictly limited, number, with two issues--in full pigskin, as seen here, and half pigskin and marbled boards. The colophon calls for 75 copies, with the more desirable full pigskin binding scheduled to run to 50 copies for distribution to South American dignitaries and the half-leather isssue of a planned 25 copies reserved for FDR's personal use and distribution at the holidays. Documents at the Library at Hyde Park suggest that the full edition of 75 copies was not achieved (cf. Horowitz, "Carmichael Collection") and that as few as seven were ever bound in full pigskin. This copy, one of the "foreign" issues, was nonetheless INSCRIBED to FDR's Sectretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau on a specially printed leaf: "To the Honorable Henry Morgenthau, Jr Secretary of the Treasury of the United States" (printed) and inscribed below in the President's hand, "From his old friend/ Franklin D. Roosevelt" Bound in full light bown pigskin, with metallic plaque of the Seal of the United States inset into the upper cover, now with a fine patina, pigskin doublures and silk endpapers. Fine. In quarter leather and marbled boards pull off slipcase First edition, one of 75 (but probably one of only 7 in this binding). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Original Illustrated Storyboards from "Ding Dong Doggie

      1937. unbound. Exceedingly rare complete set of storyboards for the classic 1937 Betty Boop cartoon short "Ding Dong Doggie," remarkably drawn by Fleischer artist and animator Tom Johnson. 8.5 x 11 inches, graphite pencil (with some highlighting in red and blue), consisting of seven highly detailed pages (more than forty frames) with descriptive motion captions. Story Line: Impressed by a dalmatian fire dog he sees, Pudgy goes against Betty's orders and follows the fire dog to a fire at the general store. Pudgy tries to help out, but the fire takes on an (animated) life of its own and gets the better of Pudgy. In the end, Pudgy is happy to run back home to Betty Boop, who gives him a good spanking for disobeying her. Additional information is written in the hand of Dave Fleischer who uses a pencil color code to keep track of the productions progress. A red check mark indicates that the scene was animated; blue indicates that the background was complete; green lets everybody involved in the project know that the scene was sent to cameraman Al Windley. A wonderful item from the Golden Age of animation. Gently worn but still in very good condition.

        The Road To Oxiana.

      London: Macmillan and co., 1937., 1937. First Edition. Octavo, pp.341 + 2 (advertisements). Bound in publisher's blue cloth, with gilt titles to spine. Illustrated with maps and photographs. Minor wear to extremeties, some fading to spine. Internally clean, including the photographs. Byron, who died young in the Second World War, was one of the Brideshead set immortalized by Evelyn Waugh, but he was also the foremost travel writer of his age. He is best known for The Road to Oxiana, a description of his journey in 1933-34 through modern Iran and Afghanistan. Paul Fussell recently suggested that what Ulysses is to the novel and what The Waste Land is to poetry, Byron's book is to travel writing.

        La Symphonie de la Peur.

      [Paris], L`Artisan du Livre, 1937. o. Pag. [84 Bll.] OBrosch. m. OSch. EA. In franz. Sprache. Nr. LXII der Ausgabe Lafuma Navarre (commerce). Mit 40 Tafeln sowie der Titelvignette. - Exlibris-St. a. V., V. fleckig, ansonsten leichte Gbrsp., Ebd. geringfügig fleckig. - Bofa (1883 - 1968), wuchs in Bordeaux und später Paris auf. Bereits mit 8 entwarf er für sich den Künstlernamen Gus Bofa. Nach seiner Militärzeit und einigen Jahren als Ingenieur, wandte er sich verstärkt seinen Illustrationen zu. Ab 1908 übernahm er die künstlerische Leitung der Zeitschrift \"Rire\". (Zitat) Nach der Homepage: \"En 1937, alors que Malaises et Zoo sont déjà presque introuvables, l`Artisan du Livre, dirigé par Mlle E. Choureau, présidente de la Chambre syndicale des libraires de France, publie La Symphonie de la Peur, une méditation tragique sur la condition humaine que domine la Peur : \"La peur n`est pas un instinct. Elle est antérieure à l`instinct. Elle est née avec la vie - qui n`est qu`un compromis entre la peur de l`éternité et la peur du néant.\" Dans ce magnifique livre, Bofa livre son témoignage d`un monde sans lumière, ni espérance et appuie d`un texte qui les commentent des dessins encore plus impressionnants que ceux de Malaises. Au terme de ce voyage au bout de la nuit aucune consolation ne s`offre au lecteur : \"Nous avons aujourd`hui à peu près autant de certitudes sur le sens de l`Univers que les contemporains du ptédoractyle et peu de chances d`en acquérir d`avantage un jour.\" La critique ne s`y trompe pas : \"C`est comme une histoire de l`humanité, de l`humanité lamentable, et il suffit de suivre les arguments placés en face de ses dessins pour comprendre que l`artiste a voulu - et il a réussi - faire de la \"philosophie en images\" comme il a fait naguère de la \"critique en images\" avec ses Synthèses littéraires. Philosophie sombre; philosophie d`un nihilisme intégral... (...) L`art qui illustre ces thèmes de désespoir apparaît d`une admirable fantasie où les effets de terreur, de comique et de fantasmagorie sont ménagés avec un sens de l`angoisse et des dons imaginatifs dépassant ce qu`on est convenu d`appeler le talent.\" (L`Oeuvre, 26 décembre 1937).

      New York: E. P. Dutton & Co., Inc., [1937]., 1937. First edition. Fine, bright copy in dust jacket with light professional restoration to the spine ends and corners. Three clever vagabonds are in the employ of a Mexican Rebel Commander, who is waging war on a Texas town near the border. They are arrested as spies and spend the next 10 hours telling long, fantastic stories that involve strategy. The plot is intriguing and the Mexican-Texas situation provides a colorful background for action and suspense. An exceptional copy.

      1937. TYPED & HANDWRITTEN LETTER by GEORGE GROSZ. TWO PAGE LETTER, addressed to AMERICAN ARTIST MARSHALL GLASIER, dated October 10, 1937. Typed and Handwritten on both sides of a single 8.5" x 11" sheet of "Douglas Manor" stationery, with the letterhead: "202 SHORE ROAD - DOUGLAS MANOR - LONG ISLAND - N.Y." (Douglas Manor hosted a thriving colony of various artists, including George Grosz.) The letter is typed on the front side and on half of the back side, is hand signed at the end of the typed portion, then handwritten for half a page beneath the signature. The handwritten portion is in Grosz's beautiful calligraphy, written with a fountain pen. The handwritten portion is significant both in size and subject matter, 19 lines, discusses artists, reason for his quitting teaching, and touches on the Spanish Civil War by mentioning fellow artists who went to Spain to fight with the Loyalists. The front typed side of the letter has a pencil margin note that is clearly in Grosz's hand, and a red pencil circling of one section. It also has a number of small, handwritten corrections, also in Grosz's hand." Good

        The Revolution Betrayed.

      New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc.,, 1937. What is the Soviet Union and Where is it Going? Translated by Max Eastman. Octavo. Original black cloth, spine lettered in gilt and black on a red ground, top edge red, others untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Spine of price-clipped jacket sunned, some old tape repairs on verso, nicks, chips and tears. A very good copy. First US edition, first printing. Signed by Trotsky on a specially prepared sheet tipped in before the half-title: "Leon Trotsky, Coyoacán, 1 Apr 1937". One of a very small number of copies of an unnumbered limited edition, each signed and dated in the same manner. There is no formal statement of limitation for this issue, but copies do not appear frequently and Trotsky's popularity in the America of the New Deal was far from strong. We find it hard to believe that more than 150-200 copies were so issued. The Revolution Betrayed is Trotsky's major critique of Stalinism, and marked the end of the American intelligentsia's romance with Russian communism. Trotsky was living in exile in the Coyoacán district of Mexico City and in April of 1937 an independent "Commission of Inquiry" into the charges made against him and others at the "Moscow Trials" was held in Coyoacán, with the American philosopher John Dewey as chairman.
