        [Photo Album]: 1937 Touring Photo Album of Mexico and Central America

      Mexico and Central America. 1937. Octavo. Black leather spiral photo album measuring 9.5" x 7.5". An assortment of 147 sepia toned photographs measuring 3" x 5" and affixed to stiff black paper. Very good with curling on the boards, rubbing, and tiny tears. Most of the 147 photographs were taken during a trip through Mexico and Central America. Depicted are the sights of Latin America, palm trees, sombreros, mountains, a tented bizarre, and a hike through a rain forest. The tour participants can be seen in fedoras posing with locals and enjoying the atmosphere. One photo shows a group of local children hanging a large lizard upside down, which apparently was extremely hilarious based on their facial expressions, not so much for the reptile. Additionally, there are 21 non-trip related photos and postcards from places in Arkansas and North Carolina toward the rear of the album. An interesting accumulation of trip photographs documenting 1930s Latin America. .

        Still Life of Renaissance Sculptured Male Bust: oil on canvas, signed lower right

      n.p, after 1937. Image 20 x 16 inches; four-inch split in canvas in lower margin. . . Gerald Leslie Brockhurst (1890-1978) was born in Birmingham, England, where he displayed a precocious talent for drawing. In London he was a prize-winning pupil at the Royal Academy Schools, and began etching in 1914. The following year he and his wife Anais moved to Ireland where for five years, under the patronage of Oliver St. John Gogarty, he made numerous paintings and drawings of Irish people and scenes. In 1920 hed returned to London and began a twenty-year career as an etcher, producing over 80 prints, and portrait painter of such distinction that he was able to command £1,000 a canvas, undertaking a maximun of 20 commissions a year. He was elected to the Royal Academy in 1937. Around 1929 he met Kathleen Woodward, a sixteen-year old model, whom he rechristened Dorette, and who became the subject of some of his most important works. Their relationship developed rapidly, and led to a protracted, sensationalized divorce case which led to his and Dorette's departure to America in 1940, where they were later married. During the final thirty years of his life Brockhurst pursued a successful career as a portrait painter ($10,000 for a full-length study) dying after a long illness at his home in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey

        Serenade

      Knopf, New York 1937 - 8vo, pp. 314. Original black boards, lettered in silver on front panel and spine. Top edge stained red, other two edges uncut. A fine copy in a very good example of the illustrated, purple variant dustwrapper, which has a 3mm lateral chip at the spine head, a slightly faded spine, and a little light chipping to top edge. First edition of Cain's second novel, after The Postman Always Rings Twice. The homosexual characters in noir fiction are usually found in the supporting cast, seedy bookshop proprietors and furtive informers doomed to die a horribly detailed death long before the final chapter. In Serenade, homosexuality provides the crucial -- and ludicrous -- plot point. An opera singer's voice is destroyed by the homosexual attentions of a conductor; only his murder can salvage the singer's career. Cain actually believed that artistic accomplishment was compromised by homosexual inclinations. He boasted that medical colleges used Serenade to teach students about the condition, and in a letter to the critic H. L. Mencken he wrote: 'The lamentable sounds that issue from a homo's throat when he sings are a matter of personal observation. But the theme [of the book] demanded the next step, the unwarranted corollory that heavy workouts with a woman would bring out the stud horse high notes.' Hardboiled homophobia from one of the great noir novelists. Who turns out to have been an idiot. Filmed in 1956 by Anthony Mann, with Joan Fontaine and Mario Lanza in the leads. A very nice copy, in the scarce dustwrapper. [Slide:13] Slide: 13

        Autograph Letter Signed, 8vo, 1p. folded verso, Harvard Club stationery, New York, NY, May 20, 1937

      - This letter is to George Haslsins and reads, "Dear George, I just saw this morning an editorial in the Herald Tribune that your father had died and I want to express my sympathy. I knew of him only from study in History one, and what you said from time to time, but I think you were singularly fortunate to have such a great man and scholar both as a father and an example in life, for I am sure it drove home to you a lesson that some of us never learn, that the only happiness in this world lies in the utmost employment of one's natural endowments. But then I think you learned that long ago, and I am one who may never learn it, so that it is foolish of me to write so. Since your letter a month ago and subsequent copies of the Monthly, I have been meaning to write you a long critical letter, for I was tremendously impressed with the magazine, feeling at the same time there is no room for two at Harvard. I have left the paper in Richmond and am thinking of work in Washington, while your sincere friend and admirer," and signed in full, "John Sloan" [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Admiral Togo, A Memoir

      Togo Gensui Publishing Society, Tokyo 1937 - Marshall-Admiral Marquis Togo Heihachiro (1848-1934) was a gensui (or admiral) of the fleet in the Imperial Japanese Navy and one of Japan's greatest naval heroes. He was termed by Western journalists as "the Nelson of the East", after Horatio Nelson, the British admiral who defeated the French and Spanish at Trafalgar. Born into a samurai family, Togo enrolled in the Japanese navy at the age of 16; he subsequently studied naval science in England for seven years, during which time he circumnagivated the world, returning to Japan in 1878. Serving again in the Imperial Japanese Navy, he rose to fame through skill and daring, eventually earning honors never bestowed on anyone outside of the Imperial family. It is interesting that he kept his journals in English, and was made a Member of the British Order of Merit by King Edward VII in 1906. Published three years after his death, this book is an homage to Togo by artists, politicians and even the Imperial family, both from Japan as well as other countries. ***DESCRIPTION: Silver and black marbled paper boards with gilt decorations and lettering on front, back, and spine; title on the cover of the book is "Admiral Togo, The Hero of the World, A Memoir", top edge gilt, plain endpapers, tissue guard over title page. Entire book is printed in English. Title page is followed by: 21 color prints by various Japanese artists of mostly nature, a portrait of the Admiral, and some battle scenes; 8 Autographical Tributes from Celebrities (in Japanese) on two plates; a section (ca. 30 pages) of black and white vintage photographs of the Admiral in various settings, at various ages, as well as scenes of his state funeral and resting place; an Introduction by Count Y. Yanagisawa; a Foreword by Dr. Kazutoshi Uyeda; the Table of Contents (where pagination begins); followed by 347 pages of text about his life including a Chronological Sketch and a final section of eulogies by the Emperor and notables both at home and abroad. Final page is a colophon that states this is "A Revised and Enlarged Edition" published on April 1, 1937. Pagination: (i-lxxx), 1-4, 1-347, (348). The dust jacket is of very heavy paper stock, dark gold in color with all printing in dark green, decoration on the front of an eagle which mirrors the front of the book; the jacket is not clipped although no price is printed. ***CONDITION: The book is overall in very good++ condition; the text block is strong and square, the hinges are solid, the interior is clean and bright, the volume is entirely free of prior owner markings.

The yearbooks for Charlie Keller's varsity baseball career at Maryland. Keller starred for Maryland in his sophomore (1935) and junior year (1936), and the presence of major league scouts is noted in the baseball section which also pictures Keller, and enumerates his accomplishments. The 1937 yearbook, Keller's senior year, mentions that Keller left the school for the Newark Bears, just before the college season started. Keller played on the great Bear teams of 1937 and 1938 before being brought up to star for the Yankee from 1939-1951, with time out to serve during the war. He was a five-time all-star.

        Artist's Original Mock-Up Book of "Negro Spirituals Illustrated"

      [circa 1937]. Folio. Handbound in muslin over boards. Bound into the book are six full-page pen and ink drawings: 1) Study of a title page "Negro Spirituals Illustrated" depicting a man, two children and an angel; 2) Fully finished drawing of the same subject; 3) Drawing of Moses, also labeled "Negro Spirituals Illustrated"; 4) Table of contents page with the contents flanked by drawings of the man, Moses, and the angel; 5) Moses holding a black child labeled "Go Down Moses"; and 6) Drawing of the man and an angel labeled "Steal Away to Jesus." Also two calligraphically hand-drawn pages of music; and seven typed and hand-corrected pages of text. Not least important are the presence of numerous photo-mechanically reproduced proofs from drawings that are not represented in the book, and which might represent the only surviving images of these drawings. Crite was a New Jersey-born Boston artist best known for his religious and spiritual images. These images are very much in the style of Crite's best-known book: Three Spirituals From Earth to Heaven (Harvard University Press, 1948), which illustrated the spirituals "Nobody Knows the Trouble I See," "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," and "Heaven." These drawings may have been either rejected from that volume, or existed to form the basis for a never realized sequel. Rare. .

        Typescript with autograph dedication signed.

      London, 19. I. 1937. - 4to. 11 pp. Original typescript with some autograph corrections, about the personality and works of the recently deceased poet Anna de Noailles (b. 1876): [.] In the summer of 1913, Madame Edmond de Polignac, that great Renaissance Princess of the Arts, gave me a little yellow volume of poems entitled 'Les Vivants et les Morts'. On the cover she has scribbled a line from Anna - 'Schumann, ciel d'Octobre où volent des cigognes''. An officer on short leave from Egypt has no time for reading. With his eye fixed on the calendar and his ear frightened by the ticking of the clock, he can hardly take in a picture or listen through a Fugue, for 'At my back I always hear | Time's winged chariot hurrying near'. Besides this I will make bold to confess to you that in 1913 I had never heard of the Comtesse Anna de Noailles, as a poet or even as a person. I opened the volume one morning on my return to Egypt as the Austrian Lloyd steamer glided past the jagged mountains of Crete, and did not put it down until, oblivious of time, I had turned the last page [.]". - Roland Storrs served posts as British Governor in Jerusalem, North Rhodesia, and Cyprus. "T. E. Lawrence commented in 'The Seven Pillars of Wisdom': 'The first of all of us was Ronald Storrs, Oriental Secretary of the Residency, the most brilliant Englishman in the Near East, and subtly efficient, despite his diversion of energy in love of music and letters, of sculpture, painting, of whatever was beautiful in the world's fruit [.] Storrs was always first, and the great man among us"' (Wikipedia). He published his Memoirs in 1937. - Slight traces of handling, otherwise fine.
