        You Have Seen Their Faces

      1937 - BOURKE-WHITE, Margaret and CALDWELL, Erskine. You Have Seen Their Faces. New York: Modern Age Books, (1937). Quarto, original photographic stiff paper covers. $4200.Scarce soft-bound Modern Age edition (published same year as cloth-bound first), inscribed on the half title, “For Mr. Jack Meike, Cordially Margaret Bourke-White,” a pioneering classic with 75 deep photogravures of the Dust Bowl by Bourke-White and text by novelist Erskine Caldwell.“This ‘word-and-picture portrait of the share-cropping South’ told the truth in both text and image about a reality hidden to most Americans at the time” (Roth, 94). As one of Life magazine’s first photojournalists, Margaret Bourke-White “helped create and define the look of picture magazines in the United States.” During the Dust Bowl, her skillful wedding of two seemingly incompatible styles, a “hard-edged theatrical style partaking of the machine-age esthetic… [and a] no-nonsense style indebted to the Farm Security Administration’s photography project. [She brought] into high relief the disparity between industrial society and those displaced by it” (New York Times). “The most commercially successful of American documentary photobooks… and one of the most controversial,” the highly influential You Have Seen Their Faces was a collaboration with Bourke-White’s future husband, writer Erskine Caldwell (Parr & Badger I:122, 140). As issued without dust jacket. See Open Book, 124. Interior fine, lightest edge-wear, minimal rubbing to spine ends of bright fragile paper covers. A near-fine copy, scarce inscribed.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1937 - 1937 Wisden - Original Hardback - Very Good for Year.

      1937. Hi, This lot is an Original 1937 Hardback Wisden . It is in very good condition, the era of 1933 to 1937 were not the best of hardbacks as Wisden swapped materials in 1933, it resulted in poorer quality Wisdens but I am pleased to say that this 1937 is far better than most for the year. The front and spine gilt is excellent for a poor year and the boards are very good, there are a few light marks mainly to the front but still nice boards. The pastedowns are fabulous and very yellow, the hinges are excellent and the internal pages are very clean. Some spotting to the page block else would be a 9. By far superior to many of the same year. Nice photoplate, Hard to find in good condition, this is not too far off excellent. More Photos on request. Payment: Cheque

        Murder à la Richelieu (Signed First Edition)

      Garden City: Doubleday, Doran, 1937. First Edition. First Edition. INSCRIBED by the Blackmon to author Peggy Gaddis (Erolie Pearl Gaddis Dern, 1895-1966) on the front endpaper, in the year of publication: "Affectionately, to the Best of Friends / Peggy Gaddis / From the author / Anita Blackmon (Mrs. Harry Pugh Smith) / August 29, 1937." Blackmon wrote extensively as Mrs. Harry Pugh Smith, with notable titles like "Handmade Rainbows" (1936), "Happy-Go-Lucky" (1938), and thousands of short stories, many of which were published in romance magazines in the 1930s. This is the first of two "Adelaide Adams" mysteries, the other being "There Is No Return" (1938). Her relationship to Peggy Gaddis is so far undocumented, but the two did publish titles under the Arcadia House and William Godwin publishing firms (as well as a number of shared magazine appearances), where it is likely the two crossed paths. This association of the two writers is unique, given the relative obscurity of their prewar publications. Very Good plus lacking the scarce dust jacket. Slight spine lean and light bumping to the spine ends, light foxing to the top page edges and endpapers, and light fading to the spine.

        D.M.H. [Daisy Monica Hawkins] 41 & 5 more [actually 51] Photostat Reproductions of drawings by EG done at Pigotts, High Wycombe 1937-1939 and at Capel-Y-Ffin, Abergavenny, Monmouthshire. With Eric Gill's notes on all the drawings.

      High Wycombe, 1937-9. An archive of photostats by Gill of his drawings of his muse Daisy Monica Hawkins who married the artist Edgar Holloway, with manuscript notes. 51 photostats by Eric Gill of his own drawings of Daisy Monica Hawkins, all 35 x 25 cms, one folding. Bound by him in paper wrappers with a brown paper spine. The title is handwritten on the upper wrapper by Gill with manuscript index page by him and three separate pages of notes all in his hand. An extraordinary archive of Eric Gill's own photostat copies of his drawings of Daisy Hawkins, 35 of which were used in his book Drawings from Life where they were reproduced in less than half the size of the originals and hence were pale imitations of them and did not reproduce much of the finer pencil lines and shading which are so clear and beautiful in Gill's photostats. In his handwritten 'Index' Gill notes the exact month and year of each drawing of Daisy and says what some were used for beyond the book - two were used for a statue of the Virgin in St. Cuthbert's in Bradford, 2 for the statue of St. John the Baptist in Guildford Cathedral (Daisy is holding a staff in these pictures), two, of hands (he refers to them as D.M.H. and EG "Flower') are parts of larger drawings - he states that the originals of these are in a Portfolio in the cupboard labelled 'Joanna' - Flower usually means sexual parts in Gill's writing so one can imagine the subject of the complete originals. One of the originals of the drawings was given to Mrs Hawkins. In addition there are three handwritten lists by Gill, two referring to which drawings were sent to Dent for inclusion in the book and which were omitted and the third which lists the drawings "specially characteristic of D.M.H." The drawings are all from the same model, Daisy Monica Hawkins, who lived in Capel-y-Ffin and was Gill's housekeeper's daughter when he lived there in the 1920s. She was later to marry the artist Edgar Holloway. She was the only subject of the drawings reproduced in Gill's book Drawings from Life which appeared in 1940 and a few images of her, some from these drawings, appear in his Twenty-Five Nudes, published in 1938.

First editions, first impressions. Forester (real name Cecil Smith) was called to Hollywood to write a pirate film, working under Arthur Hornblower. However, before they had finished the script, another studio released Captain Blood, starring Errol Flynn, and using the same historical incidents that they had counted on. Rather than seeking another position, hounded by the prospect of a paternity suit, Forester jumped aboard a cargo boat bound for home. Another passenger was the photographer Barbara Sutro. In the voyage, he took a one-day cruise around the Gulf of Fonseca in the ship's motor lifeboat, and by the end of the voyage he had a new novel worked out, The Happy Return, with its characters Hornblower, Bush, and Lady Barbara. Hornblower, with all his human indecisiveness and cross-grainedness, was Forester as he wished he had the courage to be, and Forester wrote about Hornblower again and again. This set includes his unfinished novel Hornblower and The Crisis.
