Seltenes Reklameplakat für die neu eröffnete "Touristenklasse" der beiden italienischen Schiffe REX und CONTE DI SAVOIA. "... Seit der REX und der CONTE DI SAVOIA ihren Dienst aufgenommen hatten, führten sie eine 'Spezialklasse' ... diese Klasse ist beseitigt worden. Und der ganze ungeheure Raum, den sie einnahm, bildet jetzt die neue luxuriöse TOURISTENKLASSE, die infolgedessen über grossartige Salons ... geräumige Zimmer ... verfügt...".- Die REX war das größte Passagierschiff, das jemals in Italien gebaut wurde. Die Kiellegung erfolgte am 1. August 1931. Im September 1932 wurde das Schiff von König Viktor Emanuel III. und Königin Elena auf den Namen REX getauft. 1937 wurde die Italia Flotte Riunite aufgelöst und der Italia Societa di Navigazione einverleibt. 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.

Between 1934 and 1937, Kálmán and Boldizsár investigated the lives of farmworkers in Hungary. Kálmán made portraits of them - men, women and children - while Boldizsár interviewed each of the subjects, and the result, consisting of 24 portraits and interviews, were published in Tiborc. The book's title emanates from the archetypal [Hungarian] peasant character [.]." (Parr-Badger I. 140.)

        THE LEAGUE OF FRIGHTENED MEN. 22" X 36" ORIGINAL FILM POSTER

      Columbia Pictures Corp., 1937., 1937. Original color half-sheet movie poster for the 1937 film, based on the 1935 novel of the same name by Rex Stout. The second film adaptation to feature Stout's beloved character, Nero Wolfe. The first adaptation was MEET NERO WOLFE, in 1934, where Wolfe was played by Edward Arnold. Arnold did not wish to become identified with one character, and the role was handed to Walter Connolly for the second film, with Lionel Stander as Wolfe's cohort, Archie Goodwin. Alfred E. Green was the film's director; Guy Endore and Edward Chodorov were the screenwriters; and also starring in the film were Eduardo Ciannelli and Irene Hervey. The colorful sheet has one horizontal and one vertical fold crease with some light and faint old water stains along the outer margins of the right and left sides. None of the stains affect the art work and would be covered by a mat when framed. Quite presentable copy in very good condition.

        Original Van Vechten Portrait Photograph

      New York: , 1937. Original sepia-toned silver gelatin print (226 × 164 mm). Presented in corner mounts behind double window mount. One or two tiny surface marks, slight surface rolling at the corners, but overall very well preserved with deep velvet tone. Thoughtful portrait study, signed and dated by Van Vechten verso in red ink in his characteristic minuscule handwriting; "photograph by Carl Van Vechten/ March 28, 1933-XII c: 4". Despite the variance in dating, the image appears to be number four of a series listed in the Library of Congress' collection as dating from March 28, 1937. The name "George Gershwin" is also pencilled across the back in signature style, this is in the handwriting of Irene Gallagher. Gallagher was Girl Friday to music publisher Max Dreyfus - the president of Chappell & Co., and publisher of Gershwin, Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, and Lorenz Hart - and knew all of the up-and-coming young composers of the day. This photograph is from her estate. Van Vechten met Gershwin in 1919 and was instrumental in his rise to fame, bringing the young composer together with adventurous Canadian-American mezzo Eva Gauthier whose annual concert at the Aeolian Hall for 1923 was entitled "Recital of Ancient and Modern Music for Voice", and featured songs by Byrd, Bellini, Bartok and Berlin, Hindemith, Schoenberg, Kern, and of course Gershwin; "Mr. Gershwin, at the piano, provided accompaniments which were something like works of art in their own genre, and in Mme. Gautheir's encore - his own Do it Again - raised a gale of laughter by slyly inserting a phrase from Scheherazade at an appropriate moment" (Musical America, November 10 1923). This was Gershwin's first appearance on a New York concert platform. In February 1924, Rhapsody in Blue was premiered at the same venue as part of the concert "An Experiment in Modern Music" featuring Paul Whiteman's Palais Royal Orchestra, it was reviewed by Van Vechten in Vanity Fair in an article entitled "George Gershwin: An American Composer Who Is Writing Notable Music in the Jazz Idiom", describing Rhapsody … as "the finest piece of serious music that had ever come out of America". This was the first and most important review that Gershwin was to receive, he had arrived.

      Dover, DE: D.M. Publishing, 1937 Dover, DE: D.M. Publishing Co., 1937. First Edition. January, 1936 issue (Volume VII, Number 1). 10 1/8" x 7 1/8", illustrated wrappers, 64 pp. with illustrations and photographs (nudes). Cover artist is uncredited, but is certainly either Enoch Bolles or George Quintana (see scan). Over-eighteen purchase only. Very high grade condition by pulp standards; faint soiling in a couple spots,nothing else to call out. Pages lightly and evenly aged-toned as always; quite supple. Bright and clean and undamage. Near fine. A scarce issue from of a thirties girlie mag which is in fact scarce throughout its 7-year run (1931-1937). A classic from a classic genre, collectible both for its cover (by either of the equally enigmatic Enoch Bolles and George Quintana) but also for its standard-fare contents: 16 full-page B&W nude photographs, soft (by today's standards) erotica short stories, and B&W illustrations for those stories which are often rather art-deco-y and rather collectible in their own right. With the exception of the occasional signed cover art, the illustrations in this genre were generally unsigned and uncredited, and the authors of the stories were pseudonymic; while the genre was certainly not "indecent" enough to be banned, these magazines were not something most artists, photographers and authors particularly wanted credit for at that time. Seasoned with letters and period ads, as well. Rare piece of periodical history. L100

        Ode to Evening.

      Flansham Bognor Regis: The Pear Tree Press 1937 - Limited edition, no. 17 [purportedly of 100 copies]. 8 bifoliate leaves printed on rectos only, comprising half title, frontispiece, title, 3 pages of the poem, colophon (which is signed by Guthrie) and tailpiece. All text and illustrations printed in purple and gold, publisher's quarter oatmeal cloth over cream boards, the engraved half title repeated to the upper board, dust jacket featuring a variant version of the frontispiece illustration. Supplied with three proof sheets - the title, page 2 of the poem and and the colophon - printed in green and gold, the first two signed by Guthrie at the foot. A lovely copy of a scarce work, with the fine addition of the proofs. Founded in 1899, James Guthrie named the press after his residence at the time - Pear Tree Cottage in Brentwood, Essex. There followed several moves around Kent and Sussex before he finally settled in Flansham. A small scale handpress, Guthrie printed in small batches which he varied "from copy to copy as the order of [his] palette (or slab) suggests". Interestingly the proof of the colophon is dated September 1934 and that of the finished book exactly three years later, suggesting that it had a long gestation period and the use of different colours a certain amount of experimentation. Ridler, p. 208. Cf. Tomkinson, p. 142.
