        La Symphonie de la Peur.

      L'Artisan du Livre,, [Paris], 1937 - [Paris], L'Artisan du Livre, 1937. o. Pag. [84 Bll.] OBrosch. m. OSch. EA. In franz. Sprache. Nr. LXII der Ausgabe Lafuma Navarre (commerce). Mit 40 Tafeln sowie der Titelvignette. - Exlibris-St. a. V., V. fleckig, ansonsten leichte Gbrsp., Ebd. geringfügig fleckig. - Bofa (1883 - 1968), wuchs in Bordeaux und später Paris auf. Bereits mit 8 entwarf er für sich den Künstlernamen Gus Bofa. Nach seiner Militärzeit und einigen Jahren als Ingenieur, wandte er sich verstärkt seinen Illustrationen zu. Ab 1908 übernahm er die künstlerische Leitung der Zeitschrift "Rire". (Zitat) Nach der Homepage: "En 1937, alors que Malaises et Zoo sont déjà presque introuvables, l'Artisan du Livre, dirigé par Mlle E. Choureau, présidente de la Chambre syndicale des libraires de France, publie La Symphonie de la Peur, une méditation tragique sur la condition humaine que domine la Peur : "La peur n'est pas un instinct. Elle est antérieure à l'instinct. Elle est née avec la vie - qui n'est qu'un compromis entre la peur de l'éternité et la peur du néant." Dans ce magnifique livre, Bofa livre son témoignage d'un monde sans lumière, ni espérance et appuie d'un texte qui les commentent des dessins encore plus impressionnants que ceux de Malaises. Au terme de ce voyage au bout de la nuit aucune consolation ne s'offre au lecteur : "Nous avons aujourd'hui à peu près autant de certitudes sur le sens de l'Univers que les contemporains du ptédoractyle et peu de chances d'en acquérir d'avantage un jour." La critique ne s'y trompe pas : "C'est comme une histoire de l'humanité, de l'humanité lamentable, et il suffit de suivre les arguments placés en face de ses dessins pour comprendre que l'artiste a voulu - et il a réussi - faire de la "philosophie en images" comme il a fait naguère de la "critique en images" avec ses Synthèses littéraires. Philosophie sombre; philosophie d'un nihilisme intégral. (.) L'art qui illustre ces thèmes de désespoir apparaît d'une admirable fantasie où les effets de terreur, de comique et de fantasmagorie sont ménagés avec un sens de l'angoisse et des dons imaginatifs dépassant ce qu'on est convenu d'appeler le talent." (L'Oeuvre, 26 décembre 1937). Französisch [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Covici-Friede, New York 1937 - First edition. Near fine in a price-clipped, good or better dustwrapper with some chipping near the bottom of the front flap fold, and a large but faint dampstain. An uncommon play, adapted by Steinbeck from his own novel. Filmed several times, first and most notably as the 1939 Lewis Milestone film with Burgess Meredith and Lon Chaney, Jr. in the leading roles, and which lost out to *Gone With The Wind* for a Best Picture Oscar in possibly Hollywood's greatest year (other "losers" that year included *The Grapes of Wrath, Dark Victory, Goodbye, Mr. Chips, The Wizard of Oz, Ninotchka, Stagecoach, Mr. Smith Goes To Washington*, and *Wuthering Heights*).

        Typed Letter, signed ("Peggy Mitchell Marsh"), to George Cukor, thanking him for a gift of perfume, and discussing the reception of a performance by Tallulah Bankhead

      Atlanta, Georgia, may 12, 1937 - Mitchell thanks Cukor for the gift of Mary Chess perfumes, and especially the "mimosa": "I had tried someone's brand of mimosa many years ago, but it was heavy enough to be used as an anesthetic for a major operation. This brand is so sweet and faint and the lovliest part about it is that it reminds me of old mimosa groves far in the back country on a still, hot day with the bees demented in the blossoms." She then goes on to discuss Tallulah Bankhead's recent performance in Atlanta, which she unfortunately missed: 'Of course I was eager to go, but the show opened the night after the Pulitzer Award arrived. The Vice President of The Macmillan Company was in town and he gave me a party that night. I hoped to see her the following night, but the house was so filled with friends and excitement that I could not go to the theatre. I was very disappointed for everyone was charmed with her. So few people here had liked her in her films, and I am afraid many of them went to see her play determined not to like it. But everyone was most enthusiastic about her and the phone rang all day long as people told me how charming she was- " Mitchell won the Pulitzer Prize in 1937 for her novel GONE WITH THE WIND; and George Cukor was David Selznick's first choice as director of the film 4to.
