        Large and striking relic of the 1937 Hindenburg disaster, collected by the chief boatswain in charge of the mooring lines at Lakehurst?who was also a survivor of the Shenandoah

      [Lakehurst, NJ], [May 6, 1937]. 9" x 3" x 4". "A section of struts, constructed of aluminum alloy, 9"" x 3"" x 4"", recovered from the wreck of the Zeppelin airship Hindenburg after it crashed in Lakehurst, New Jersey on May 6, 1937. Expected wear consistent with exposure to fire.This girder section is strikingly light being made of Duralumin, an age-hardenable aluminum alloy developed by Alfred Wilm. Its primary use was for airship frames and all of the great airships of the 1920s and 1930s used this material. The strut section was recovered by Frederick J. ""Bull"" Tobin (1892-1978), one of the chief boatswains managing the mooring lines at Lakehurst, New Jersey when the Hindenburg caught fire and crashed to the ground in flames. Tobin became famous for ordering the fleeing ground crew back to their posts in order to assist the survivors. Twelve years earlier , Tobin survive the crash of the airship U.S.S. Shenandoah in southeastern Ohio. He had been asleep near the tail of the airship at the time, and managed to escape just as the rear section crashed to Earth (John Toland, The Great Dirigibles: Their Triumphs and Disasters, 1957, p. 140-141, 328)."

        Kyskhet. Ett spel för teatern i prolog och fem akter.

      Stockholm; Bonniers, 1937. Originalupplaga. 19,5x13 cm. 194 s. Häftad med tryckt omslag. Liten förlust vid ryggfoten. L-formad reva i övre framfals som går in på främre omslaget. Det överdimensionerade omslaget är lätt veckat i främre omslagets nedre marginal, där det också finns två små riss. En liten fuktfläck i yttermarginalen på s. 1-20, fin inlaga i övrigt. Dedikation: ''[Vilhelm Mobergs Kyskhet] -- vad som är kvar av den tillägnas härmed Kristina. / Vilhelm / d. 20/1 1947''. Mottagaren Kristina Odelberg/Hedenblad (1917-2005) hade under 40-talet och möjligen även senare en kärleksaffär med Moberg, som döpte Kristina i Utvandrarserien efter henne. Kärleksaffären upptäcktes via en svit om 30 böcker som Moberg dedicerat till henne. I exemplaret av Utvandrarna (1949) skriver han: "Till Kristina, min älskade, som lånat sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i denna bok, med tacksamhet och kärlek från Författaren", ett intyg som upprepas så sent som 1969 i pocketupplagan av Utvandrarserien: " Den 29/3 1969. / Till Kristina -- hon som givit sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i utvandrarromanen och till Minnet / med innerlig tillgivenhet från Författaren", vilket visar att hon var fullt närvarande i hans tankevärld under hela denna tid och därmed mycket väl kan ha påverkat hans senare litterära produktion. Vad som ytterligare talar för detta är exemplaret av Vår ofödde son, en pjäs från 1945 som behandlar abort-problematik. Detta är den enda av böckerna som Kristina låtit binda in i ett påkostat rött skinnband, med en pärmficka längst bak där hon samlat tidningsartiklar om boken och dess författare. I Kristinas exemplar av den danska utgåvan av samma bok, utgiven 1947, finns en dedikation från översättaren: "Kaera Kristina! / Denne Bog, den til Dels handler om dig, sendes dig til Erindring -- ikke om Forfattaren, men om Oversatteren. / Din Carl Erik''

        Sussex Edition of the Complete Works in Prose and Verse of Rudyard Kipling, The

      1937. first edition. The Best and Rarest Edition of the Works of Rudyard Kipling One of the Signed Sets that Escaped the Blitz of LondonKIPLING, Rudyard. The Sussex Edition of the Complete Works in Prose and Verse of Rudyard Kipling. London: Published by Macmillan and Company, 1937-1939. One of 500 sets signed by Rudyard Kipling (this being No. 219) and printed on hand-made paper. Complete in thirty-five royal octavo volumes (9 1/2 x 6 5/8 inches; 241 x 163 mm.). Half-titles printed in rust. The first sheet of each signature bears Kipling?'s familiar Ganesha watermark. Publisher?'s full niger morocco, covers double-ruled in gilt, spine lettered in gilt in compartments, five raised bands, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt on the rough, all others uncut. Minimal and uniform fading to spines, otherwise a very fine set. ?"During the last years of his life, Kipling was engaged in a complete revision of his works, and the text of the Sussex edition represents his final revised text. Two volumes of uncollected prose and much verse are here collected for the first time. This de luxe, signed edition was published after the author?'s death by Macmillan & Co. and is limited to 525 sets of which 500 are for sale. Unfortunately, a substantial portion of the edition was destroyed in unbound sheets during the bombing of London in 1941.?" (Stewart. Rudyard Kipling a Bibliographical Catalogue, Toronto, 1959, p. 577.) The Sussex Edition was envisioned by his long-time publisher Macmillan as a monument to Kipling.Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was an English short-story writer, poet, and novelist. He wrote tales and poems of British soldiers in India and stories for children. He was born in Bombay, in the Bombay Presidency of British India, and was taken by his family to England when he was five years old. Kipling's works of fiction include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901), and many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888). His poems include "Mandalay" (1890), "Gunga Din" (1890), "The Gods of the Copybook Headings" (1919), "The White Man's Burden" (1899), and "If—" (1910). He is regarded as a major innovator in the art of the short story; his children's books are classics of children's literature; and one critic described his work as exhibiting "a versatile and luminous narrative gift".Rudyard Kipling was one of the most popular writers in England, in both prose and verse, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Henry James said: "Kipling strikes me personally as the most complete man of genius (as distinct from fine intelligence) that I have ever known." In 1907, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, making him the first English-language writer to receive the prize, and its youngest recipient to date. Among other honors, he was sounded out for the British Poet Laureateship and on several occasions for a knighthood, all of which he declined. Kipling's subsequent reputation has changed according to the political and social climate of the age and the resulting contrasting views about him continued for much of the 20th century. George Orwell called him a "prophet of British imperialism".Literary critic Douglas Kerr wrote: "He [Kipling] is still an author who can inspire passionate disagreement and his place in literary and cultural history is far from settled. But as the age of the European empires recedes, he is recognized as an incomparable, if controversial, interpreter of how empire was experienced. That, and an increasing recognition of his extraordinary narrative gifts, make him a force to be reckoned with."Stewart, p. 577.

        The Years

      London: The Hogarth Press, 1937 First edition, first printing. Publisher's jade cloth, lettered in gilt; in the original cream pictorial dust jacket designed by Vanessa Bell, with an illustration of a rose surrounded by circular designs to the panels in black and brown, lettered in black and brown.About fine, with a hint of wear to the spine ends, else bright and clean; unclipped dust jacket, with a few faint hints of light soiling, otherwise extremely fresh and without wear. An exceptionally beautiful and stunning copy, as this dust jacket is notoriously fragile and prone to toning. Free of any repairs or restoration. Kirkpatrick A22a, Woolmer 423. Simultaneously the last novel to be published and the most widely read during the author's lifetime, The Years traces the history of the members of the Pargiter family from the 1880s to the 1930s. While the plot spans 50 years, the text is more a collection of vignettes, each of which represents a single moment of a given year. The Years began as a lecture Woolf gave in 1931 to the National Society for Women's Service. Building upon the issues generated in her previous novel, A Room of One's Own (1929), she wanted to take a broader view of women's social and economic lives. The Years began as a series of essays with each followed by a novelistic passage; in the end, only the novelistic passages were included, and the essays were collected as Three Guineas (1938).. First Edition.. Hard Cover. Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Great Contemporaries

      London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., 1937. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a fine British first edition, first printing in a first printing dust jacket. Great Contemporaries is Churchill's much-praised collection of insightful essays about 21 leading personalities of the day - including the likes of Lawrence, Shaw, and, most famously, Hitler. Churchill's piece about Hitler can be a shock to the modern ear, as it underscores his ability to write a balanced appraisal of his subject while expressing his earnest desire to avoid the war that he would fight with such ferocious resolve only a few years later. There is a reason this book is still in print today. It was written with what has been called "penetrating evaluation, humor, and understanding." Churchill's balanced and nuanced perspectives are a good model for many of today's more polemic writers. And naturally, in the course of sketching the character of his contemporaries Churchill necessarily reveals some of his own character and perspective. Churchill's portrait of T.E. Lawrence, published here just a few years before the Second World War, might well have been written about the author rather than by him: "The impression of the personality of Lawrence remains living and vivid upon the minds of his friends, and the sense of his loss is in no way dimmed among his countrymen. All feel the poorer that he has gone from us. In these days dangers and difficulties gather upon Britain and her Empire, and we are also conscious of a lack of outstanding figures with which to overcome them. Here was a man in whom there existed not only an immense capacity for service, but that touch of genius which everyone recognizes and no one can define." (Great Contemporaries, p.164) While some of the subjects of Churchill's sketches have receded into history, many remain well-known and all remain compellingly drawn. This is as engaging a read today as it was in 1937. Here is a collector-grade copy, fine in a very good, unclipped first printing dust jacket. Collectors should note that the first printing dust jacket is unique, with changes to the front flap on the second and subsequent printings. The binding is beautifully square, clean, bright, and tight, with vivid gilt and sharp corners. We note only a touch of wrinkling at the spine heel. The contents are likewise notably bright and clean. We find no previous ownership marks. Differential toning of the endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps confirms that this copy has spent life jacketed. The blue-stained top edge is clean and retains uniform, unfaded color. A trace of spotting appears confined to the bottom edge of the text block and a single, tiny spot on the fore edge. The dust jacket is unclipped, retaining the original front flap price. The vivid orange color remains very good, just slightly darkened on the jacket spine. Losses are quite modest, confined to fractional loss at the corners and spine heel, a .5 x .5 triangular loss at the upper rear hinge, and just a little loss accompanied by some wrinkling associated with a one inch closed tear at the upper front hinge. A few other short closed tears at the extremities show no loss. There is vintage brown tape reinforcement on the backside of the jacket at the spine ends. A 2 x 1.5 inch semi-circular stain at the front panel fore edge is the only blemish of note. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

        Menu]. Cena en honor de D. Juan Belmonte, regalito de la aficion portuguesa.

      (Lisbon),, 1937. - Printed in red throughout. Full-page caricature of Belmonte fighting a bull on cover. 2 leaves, printed on the rectos only. Large 8°, folded. Fine. Three-line presentation inscription to Francisco Valença from Juan Belmonte, dated 1937, on cover. ---- Signed presentation copy of a menu designed by Francisco Valença for a dinner at A Severa, Lisbon, 17 July 1937 in honor of the Spanish bullfighter Juan Belmonte, inscribed by Belmonte to Valença. Some of the dishes include "Sopa Belmontina," "Pescado a la Média Veronica," and "Ternera Andaluza con salsa torera." Juan Belmonte y García (1892?1962) was considered by many the greatest bullfighter of all time. He revolutionized the art of bullfighting. A close friend of Ernest Hemingway, he is the prototype for one of the characters in Heminway's novel, @The Sun Also Rises, as well as being featured in Hemingway's nonfiction book on bullfighting, @Death in the Afternoon.Francisco Valença (1882?1962) was perhaps the most important twentieth?century Portuguese caricaturist. The article on him in the @Grande enciclopédia portuguesa e brasileira notes that Valença was renowned in Portugal and abroad, comparing him to Bordalo Pinheiro, one of the geniuses of the art of caricature: "Durante toda a sua vida tem constantemente enriquecido com os seus desenhos não só inúmeras páginas da grande maioria dos jornais e revistas de Portugal, como também de França, de Espanha e do Brasil. É, tanto pela extensão da sua obra, como pela sua intenção artística e social, @@um dos maiores caricaturistas portugueses depois de Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro, com o qual tem grandes afinidades."Valença began his career in 1900, as director of @O Chinelo, which he founded with André Brun and writer Carlos Simões. Valença also founded @Salão cómico (1902); @Varões assinalados (1909-1911 - winner of the ?Grand Prix? in the Rio de Janeiro exposition of 1922-1923); and @O Moscardo (1913). His work appeared in the following newspapers, journals, and reviews: @A Comédia portuguesa (1902); @Brasil-Portugal (1902-1909); @Suplemento humorístico do Século (1904-1908); @Novidades (1907); @Ilustração portuguesa (1906-1920); @Tiro e sport (1906-1911); @Arte musical (1907-1908); @Alma nacional (1910); @A Sátira (1911); @Eco artístico (1914-1915); @O teatro (1922-1923); @Diário de notícias (the @New York Times of Portugal; 1919-1924, 1930); @O Mundo (1918-1924); @Eco Artístico (1914-1915); @De Teatro (1922-1923); @República (1918); @Ilustração (1926); @Sempre fixe (for 30 years, starting in 1926); @Alma nova (1922-1925); @Portucale (Porto, 1930). He was artistic director of the weekly @O Espectro (1925). Abroad, his work appeared in @Rire (Paris); @Boletin Fermé (Barcelona); and many newspapers and reviews in Rio de Janeiro. Together with Carlos Simões, Valença produced the @Catálogo cómico, with send-ups of works by Portugal?s serious artists shown in the Exposição de Belas Artes in 1914-1919, 1923 and 1924.Valença?s illustrations appeared in numerous special Christmas issues of the @Diário de Notícias and the @Comércio do Porto. He illustrated books for Emília de Sousa Costa, Julieta Ferrão, Alfredo França, Armando Ferreira, Augusto Cunha, Cruz Magalhães, Henrique Marques Junior, Luís Chaves, Magalhães Lima, Tomás de Eça Leal, and others.Original examples of Valença?s work are in the collections of the Museu de Arte Contemporânea, Lisbon; the Museu de Bragança; the Museu Municipal, Porto; the Museu Soares dos Reis, Porto; and the Getty Research Institute.---- See @Grande enciclopedia XXXIII, 880 and Pamplona, @Dicionário de pintores e escultores portugueses V, 310.

        The Adventures of Tom Sawyer. Screenplay by John V.A. Weaver (based on the 1876 novel by Mark Twain)

      The Selznick International Pictures 1937, 1937. DIRECTOR'S COPY of the Final Shooting Script for the 1938 movie, INSCRIBED BY OSCAR WINNING PRODUCER DAVID O. SELZNICK. Quarto, dated July 16 1937. In a presentation binding of gilt-titled red morocco spine over salmon cloth sides, stamped in gilt with to upper 'Norman Taurog'. Some minor rubbing, cloth shows some blooming. With warm inscription within; 'for Norman- with happy memories of a nice association- and with gratitude for a fine job, David S. 1938'. Directed by Taurog and produced by Selznick, the Oscar-nominated United Artists movie adaptation follows closely Twain's celebrated novel about the life and times of a mischievous boy in 1850 Missouri, and was the first version of the classic tale to be filmed in Technicolor. David O. Selznick [1902-1965], Hollywood renegade and founding Member of The Society of Independent Motion Picture Producers, will be forever remembered for Gone With The Wind, 1939, which won eight competitive awards and two special citations from thirteen Oscar nominations - both records for the time. The film is often considered the most beloved, enduring and popular motion picture of all time and Selznick was awarded The Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award (for creative production) by the Academy in 1939. In the thirties Selznick had already produced such prestige pictures and literary works for the screen, such as King Kong (1933), David Copperfield (1935), A Tale Of Two Cities (1935), Anna Karenina (1935), The Prisoner Of Zenda (1937), and The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer (1938), and at the time of Gone With the Wind's production, he was also preparing Rebecca (1940); He is equally famous for bringing British film-maker Alfred Hitchcock to Hollywood and for their collaberation following Rebecca on films such as Spellbound (1945), The Paradine Case (1947). His interest in Film-noir continued with the Orson Welles classic The Third Man (1950). Throughout the fifties he nurtured his second wife's Jennifer Jones' career, through the films Gone To Earth (1950), Wild At Heart (1952) and A Farewell To Arms (1957), which proved to be his last picture.

        Incredibly intimate and important correspondence between FDR as President and his son-in-law, John Boettiger. "Things international are not so good, but every cloud has a silver lining, and I take it that you on the Coast are a little more aware that there is an effort being made to dominate the Pacific against us."

      Various, 1937-1945. n/a. "Franklin Delano Roosevelt Presidential Collection of original typed memo and letters, six signed. Washington, D.C./ Hyde Park, NY: White House, June 2, 1937-February 4, 1942. Six boldly signed by FDR and one signed by him in type (letters on four-page pale green White House letterhead, memo on single-page ivory White House letterhead), four typed White House letterhead envelopes postmarked, canceled stamps. An intimate and important glimpse in the personal and public life of an American president as the nation stood dangerously poised between the Great Depression and world war, containing letters to FDR?s son-in-law John Boettiger, publisher at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and letters to both John and his wife, FDR?s beloved daughter Anna, one letter dated only weeks after Pearl Harbor.This rare collection of correspondence from President Franklin D. Roosevelt offers an exceptionally intimate and important glimpse into the President?s private and political concerns. This archive consists of four typed letters and a typed signed memo from the President to his son-in-law John Boettiger, and two 1942 typed signed letters to Boettiger and his wife Anna, FDR?s adored daughter, who married Boettiger in 1935. Letters and memo fine with only faint fold lines. A major presidential archive in fine condition.In 1936 Anna and John had moved to Seattle where, at ?Hearst?s invitation, John was made publisher and Anna became associate editor of the women?s pages... Under their leadership the Post-Intelligencer expanded its circulation and the two of them became the toast of the town? (Goodwin, No Ordinary Time, 181). The collection begins with two 1937 typed letters to Boettiger. In the first letter, dated June 2, FDR boldly scrawls ?Private? in his bold cursive beneath the White House letterhead and discusses labor troubles in Seattle. In his September 2nd letter, written from Hyde Park, FDR hints of ?a definite decision... of the Far Eastern situation??"likely hinting to his administration?s subsequent official warning to Americans in China as war between China and Japan escalated. In the first of three 1940 letters, FDR discusses his decision to appoint Senator Lewis Schwellenbach, who would become Truman?s Secretary of Labor, to a judicial post, and writes: ?The political pot boils, of course, in both parties but I lose no sleep over that.? In subsequent 1940 letters he discusses a Post Office appointment and pointedly addresses American preparations for war, especially a war in the Pacific. He notes in his October 1 letter: ?Things international are not so good... and I take it that you on the Coast are a little more aware that there is an effort being made to dominate the Pacific against us.? The collection concludes with two 1942 letters addressed to both Anna and John. In the letter dated January 29, written just weeks after Pearl Harbor, FDR warmly thanks them for a Christmas gift and in his February 4 letter warmly writes with ?best love to each one of you.? Following is a full transcript of the seven letters and memos, and four corresponding typed White House envelopes.1. Typed Letter Signed, ""F.D.R.,"" with ""Private"" written by the President at the top of the letter, on pale green White House letterhead, one page, June 2, 1937. In full, ""Dear John: I have been much interested in your letter and it reminds me of the fact that before you left I told you that so far as labor relationships so, Seattle is without doubt one of the two or three most difficult places in the United Sates. The real point of it all is, of course, that we are in the middle of a formative period. It is our hope, of course, that by the process of evolution machinery can be worked out to meet every need or individual problem and that as a result there will be the responsibility, both on the part of the employers and employees, to live up to agreements. Probably in the process there will have to be an open break with people who, like your friend, insist on being permanently against all employers. The important thing, however, is to wait until such time as people of that kind commit some unpardonable sin which gets the public down on them and it is always worthwhile remembering that if one is to wage a war, it is best not to attack until the other fellow gets himself into an untenable position. I hope to have a chance to talk the thing over with you more fully when you come East. From all I hear and in spite of troubles, the paper is coming might well. Affectionately, [signed] F.D.R.? 2. Typed Letter Signed in Type, ""F.D.R.,""on pale green White House letterhead, but with typescript ?Hyde Park, New York, one page, September 2, 1937. In full, "" Dear John: I quite understand about the story in the P.I. The only difficulty here was the row between the press associations. They nearly bit each other. I cannot make a definite decision until next week on account of the Far Eastern situation, but when I decide and the chances are favorable, I will break the story out of here about eight PM so you will get it for the morning edition. Love to all, Affectionately, [signed in type] F.D.R. / P.S. Just leaving for four days on Long Island Sound.? 3. Typed Letter Signed on pale green White House letterhead, one page, Typescript: ?PERSONAL & CONFIDENTIAL , March 7, 1940. In full, ""Dear John:?"I find your letter and subsequent note on my return and you will not get this until you get back from Hawaii. I hope you and Anna will get as grand a rest as I did?"though my three days in Honolulu were about the most strenuous I have ever put in. I saw Lew Schwellenbach the other day and he seems to be in a good frame of mind. I will send his nomination for the Judgeship to the Senate about the first of May so that there will be plenty of time for him to be confirmed. He will then remain in the Senate until the close of the session and be sworn in after that. This will give Governor Martin the chance to avoid making an appointment as his successor. I do hope you can put up a real liberal who can win the nomination. Finally, it is infinitely important that Schwellenbach stay through the session. Things here are amazingly quiet with only the appropriation bills and the Trade Agreement to worry about. The political pot boils, of course, in both parties, but I lose no sleep over that. Much love to you both. Don?t breathe it to a soul but I might find it possible if Congress adjourns by June first to go to the Coast in June! Affectionately, [signed] FDR."" Includes mailing envelope also with typescript, ""PERSONAL & CONFIDENTIAL.""4. Typed Note Signed, ""FDR"" in manuscipt and, ""F.D.R."" in Type on ivory White House letterhead, one page, May 18, 1940. In full, ""MEMORANDUM FOR JOHN BOETTIGER. The Post Office matter finally came to a head. The name of Geroge Starr came over in a long list from the Postmaster General. I sent it back. It was returned with an explanation that his record as Postmaster had been good?"consistently up in the 90?s. Then I called up Magnuson who said that while he was not his first choice, he would interpose no objection and thought it better all around for harmony to let it go through. Bone and Schwellenbach interpose no objection. So there you are. If I turn him down personally now it will be said that I merely did not like the color of his hair and that everybody else has endorsed him. Under the circumstances I have sent the name to the Senate! Ain?t it Hell! [signed] FDR [signed in type] F.D.R.? Includes original mailing envelope.5. Typed Letter Signed, ""FDR,"" on pale green White House letterhead, 1.5 pages, October 1, 1940. In full, ""Dear John:?"There seems to be some mix-up which I am trying to straighten out. I think Schwellenbach would resign but we are not 100% certain that Wallgren will be appointed. The next few days will tell. I am just back from another short inspection trip?"Aberdeen Proving Ground, Martin Bomber factor and Camp Meade. I was able to make a few practical suggestions and the main point of these trips which has never yet appeared in print is that the places visited by me?"Arsenals, Navy Yards, private plants, etc.?"get a real enthusiasm and speed-up production during the days following my visit. It does seem to help. Things international are not so good but every cloud has its silver lining, and I take it at that you on the Coast are a little more aware that there is an effort being made to dominate the Pacific against us. I do wish I could see you and Anna before Election, and I do wish I could get out to the coast but I like to thing that the [continued on next page] Coast knows the real reason is that I have to stick close to home plate. Ever so much love to you both and to the children, Affectionately, [signed] FDR.? Includes original mailing envelope.6. Typed Letter Signed, ""F.DR,"" on pale green White House letterhead, one page, January 29, 1942. In full, ""Dearest Sis and John: I have not had a chance before this to thank you for that delightful ?sailor and gal? which you sent me for Christmas. They are grand and I am taking them up to the Hilltop Cottage. We missed you all very much through the holidays and hope you can come on for a visit some time soon. Much love to all. Affectionately, [signed] F.DR.? Includes original mailing envelope.7. Typed Letter Signed, ""FDR,"" on pale green White House letterhead,one page, February 4, 1942. In full, ""Dearest Anna and John: It gave me real joy to have your message and to know that all of you were thinking of me. Ever so many thanks, and best love to each one of you. Affectionately, [signed] FDR ."" Rear page containing small penciled notation in an unidentified manuscript hand, crossed over: ?Left town Thurs. a.m. just before leaving [unclear] Times.?"

Draper, Department of English, West Virginia University, Morgantown, West Virginia. With original postmarked envelope. In full, ""My dear Professor Draper: Thank you so very much for the many kind things you wrote about my novel. Thank you so very much for praising Melanie. So many of my readers overlook her because the flamboyance of Scarlett casts her in the shade. I am so glad you thought her 'a great lady' indeed.""I appreciate your interest in the matter of the French translation of ""Gone With the Wind"" and I am flattered that you took the trouble to write to Professor Dottin about it. I realize how much of the flavor of a book can be lost in translation and I sincerely hope that the French version of my book is an excellent one. However, I have no say in the matter, as I have put the sales of foreign rights and translations in the hands of an agent, Miss Marion Saunders, 27 East 35th Street, New York. I believe she is at present negotiating with a French publisher, so, may I suggest that you or Professor Dottin get into connection with her. Thanks again for your fine letter.

In part, ""Among other matters, I pointed out that Melanie, though overshadowed by the primitive flamboyance of Scarlett, must have been far more difficult to express ... Hollywood made much ado about finding an actress to play Scarlett; but the real problem of casting must have been Melanie, for so few producers or actors on the screen had any notion from their own backgrounds what a lady was like. Olivia de Havilland, however, was perfect for the part ..."""

        Chinese Ceremonial Paper

      Quarto. Chillicothe: Mountain House Press, 1937. Quarto, 79, (3)pp., with 50 paper specimens, many folding, plus collotype frontispiece of a furnace for burning sacred paper, 8 collotype illustrations, and two block prints with photos of the blocks that made them. Quarter leather with paper over boards block printed in gilt, backstrip tooled in gilt, slight wear to foot of backstrip and board edges, occasional small stain to top margins, very good. The often extremely fragile specimens are in excellent condition with only occasional tears to the largest folding examples. One of 125 numbered copies signed by Dard Hunter and printed by him on paper handmade in Asia. A remarkable work impossible to recreate or reproduce. The many annotated paper specimens were gathered by Hunter during journeys in China, â??as well as in Indo-China, Java, Sumatra, Siam, Malay Peninsula, and other Asiatic countries where the Chinese have emigratedâ? and include mock-money, both ancient and contemporary, ornamental burning envelopes and trays, and examples of paper gods. Hunterâ??s work is of pivotal importance in the history of American book making. Immersed in the Arts and Crafts movement at Elbert Hubbardâ??s Roycroft company, Hunter went on to found the first handmade paper mill in America and to create arguably the worldâ??s first â??one manâ? books: books he printed on paper he had made with a typeface he had designed, cut, and cast himself. In Chillicothe, Ohio, he founded Mountain House Press and for the next 46 years dedicated himself to the study of papermaking, travelling around the world for his research and authoring 20 books on the subject.
