"The book's authors, photographer Kata Kálmán (1909-1978) and the writer Iván Boldizsár were members of a group of progressive intellectuals in the 1930s - composed of sociologists, artists, writers and researchers - who sought to raise public awareness about the plight of exploited agricultural and industrial workers. 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.) Iván Boldizsár (1912-1988) the Hungarian poet and writer, president of the Hungarian PEN Club from 1970 and President of the International PEN Club in 1984 and one of the first people from the former Soviet bloc who received Honorary Degree in the United States.

        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.

The book also contains a number of early works by notable authors such as the first appearance of US Poet Laureate Elizabeth Bishop's "The Sea and the Shore" -- Bishop's first book, "North & South" did not appear until 1946. Copies of "New Letters in America 1" are not particularly common, copies in any semblance of the dust jacket are scarce, copies signed by any of the contributors are scarce, copies signed by more than one contributor are scarcer still, and copies signed by John Cheever in this, his debut book appearance, are as scarce as hen's teeth, all of the foregoing being together found in this copy and making it likely a Rare one. A Very Good copy of this important Anthology, containing early works by notable authors, including John Cheever's first appearance in book form, SIGNED BY RICHARD EBERHART AND SIGNED BY JOHN CHEEVER. QUITE SCARCE INDEED AND LIKELY RARE.

        German Paratrooper?s Gravity Knife

      Germany, n.d. "German Paratrooper?s knife, 4? blade, 5? hardwood grip, and 3.75? marlin spike, total length when opened, 13?. Moderate surface spotting and staining. Very Good condition. Requests from Fallschirmjäger (Paratrooper) personnel for a knife that could be utilized with just one hand resulted in the development of the the Flieger-Kappmesser (Flight Utility Knife) in 1937, two years before World War II began. Although originally developed for paratroopers, this knife was eventually issued during the war to all aircrew personnel and was also included in the flight survival equipment. Although officially designated Flieger-Kappmesser, due to the blades gravity action it was commonly referred to as the Schwerkkraftmesser, (Force of Gravity Knife). The internal blade was activated by an external press lever which relieved pressure on an internal leaf spring, and by pointing the knife downwards, gravity allowed the blade to slide out into the open position. With a removable throat piece and handles, it allowed access to the internal components for repair. The natural hardwood grips are secured by four small flat head rivets and blued steel fittings. The hardwood grips show staining from the securing rivets and have numerous small dings and dents. The external fittings consist of a removable scalloped tipped throat with push button lock, activating pressure lever, spine, riveted swivel ""D"" ring and fold down marlin spike. The pressure lever is marked ?22.? Only remnants of the original bluing remains and all the steel fittings have mostly reverted to the flat matte grey of the base metal with light to moderate surface spotting. The knife has a 4"" long, drop forged steel, single edged blade. It bears the manufacturer?s logo and marking: ?Paul Weyersberg & Co. Solingen.? The blade shows minor sharpening scars and light to moderate surface spotting. The gravity action of the blade still functions but is slightly ""sticky"". Internal oiling would probably eliminate the ""stickiness"" of the blade. The removable scalloped tipped throat has an impressed arrow which is pointed at the locking push button. When depressed the locking push button allows the throat piece to be removed permitting access to the internal components of the knife for ease of repair."

        ALFRED THE GREAT. Signed.

      Michael Joseph, London 1937 - First Edition of poet Ralph Gustafson's second book, Inscribed by him on the front free endpaper. "For Mamie - affectionately Ralph, 1937." Additionally, with an extraordinary 1pp. TLS laid-in, dated March 9, 1990, in part, explaining the dedication, the scarcity of the book itself - most copies having been destroyed in the London Blitz and his thoughts for writing the play. "Alfred the great was a result of my interest in Alfred as a figure who stemmed the tide of the invading Danes as Churchill & the Battle Of Britain stemmed the Nazi invasion. I used Alfred as a contemporary symbol of opposition to Fascism even though I, of course, when I wrote the play, I did not know of the 1940's. In the way of youth who dream, I thought Nicholas Medtner might use Alfred as a libretto for an opera!" A very good or better copy in red cloth, silver titles to the spine in a bright, fresh excellent dustwrapper with one thumbnail chip at the heel of the spine. Very nice indeed [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
