        Great Contemporaries

      London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., 1937. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Fine/Near fine. This is a strikingly fine copy of the British first edition, first printing in the 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 compelling a read today as it was in 1937. Here is a collector-grade copy, fine in an almost near-fine, 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 immaculate - square, tight, and vividly bright with nicely rounded spine, sharp corners, bright gilt, and virtually no wear. The contents are likewise atypically bright. We find no spotting and no previous ownership marks. Even the page edges remain unusually clean and entirely free of spotting. The blue-stained top edge retains uniform, unfaded color. Mild differential toning to the endpapers corresponding to the dust jacket flaps confirms what the lovely binding already tells us - that this copy has spent life jacketed. The dust jacket is unclipped and highly complete. Trivial losses are confined to the hinge extremities and corners. The orange color remains strong, with only a barely perceptible color shift to the spine. Light wear and soiling is primarily confined to the hinges and extremities and we note minor wrinkling at the spine ends. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic Reference: Cohen A105.1.a, Woods/ICS A43(a.1), Langworth p.178

        The Revolution Betrayed: What Is The Soviet Union and Where Is It Going? Presentation copy to Benjamin Stolberg. [together with]: Stolberg's personal copies of "Not Guilty" and "The Case of Leon Trotsky" and an original 3" x 5" photograph of Trotsky and Stolberg, dated April, 1937

      New York: Doubleday, Doran, 1937. First Edition. A major presentation copy of the work which effectively served as Trotsky's death sentence, a detailed and strident dismantling of Stalinist bureaucracy in the Soviet Union, which Trotsky described as "...a revival of genuine Russian barbarism...[under] a bureaucracy possessing little culture, and [imposing on] the masses a well-known gospel of obedience and silence." Trotsky's manuscript for The Revolution Betrayed was completed in the spring of 1936, and was certainly known to leaders of the Comintern by the time of the first Moscow show trial in August of that year, at which Trotsky was sentenced to death in absentia for conspiracy to assassinate Stalin. The death sentence was finally carried out in 1940, when a Comintern assassin attacked Trotsky in his home at Coyoacán, Mexico, killing him with a single blow to the head with an ice-axe. & & Benjamin Stolberg (1891-1951) was a prominent and highly respected American labor journalist throughout the Thirties and Forties; his columns were syndicated by the Scripps-Howard newspaper syndicate as well as the New York Post, The New York Times, and various labor newspapers. As a member of the Dewey Commission -- an independent tribunal of left-leaning intellectuals assembled to investigate the Comintern's accusations against Trotsky and his faction -- Stolberg had a singular, and significant, connection to Trotsky. The Dewey Commission published two thick volumes concerning the Moscow Trials, the first a transcript of the Commission's 13-session deposition of Trotsky at his home in Coyoacán, Mexico in 1937 (titled "The Case of Leon Trotsky"), during the course of which this volume was almost certainly inscribed; the second a summary of the Commission's conclusions, which are neatly summarized in the book's title: "Not Guilty" (1938). Stolberg's personal copies of each of these volumes, with his dated ownership signature to each front endpaper, are included here, as is a small (3-1/2" x 4-1/2") vintage black and white print of Trotsky in the company of two unidentified visitors (probably Commission members), identified on verso in Stolberg's hand: Coyoacan / April 1937. & & Autographed copies of The Revolution Betrayed are not, strictly speaking, uncommon -- Trotsky hosted many visitors during his four-year exile in Coyoacán, and was not hesitant to sign copies of his books -- but to our knowledge this is the first significant association copy to appear on the market in at least 20 years, and the only copy to have provenance relating it to a member of the Dewey Commission. & & PROVENANCE: Through the trade, from a Stolberg descendant. Octavo. Cloth boards, stamped in red, white and gilt on spine; dustjacket; [i]-vii, 308pp. Presentation copy, inscribed by Trotsky to Benjamin Stolberg on front endpaper: "To Benjamin Stolberg / devotedly yours / Leon Trotsky / 21 - 11 - 1937." A tight, straight copy, Very Good to Near Fine; in the original pictorial dustwrapper, unclipped, faded on spine and with a few chips at extremities; VG.

        SERVE IT FORTH

      1937. Book. 1st. 8 tipped-in plates reproducing gastronomically-themed woodcuts, paintings, engravings, and lithographs from the Bettman Collection. New York and London: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1937. First edition. 8½" x 6"; xii, [2], 253 pp. Fisher’s first book, interspersing her own recollections of memorable dining experiences with historical observations on cuisine, what she would refer to as "humanistic-gastronomic writing". Among the most notable essays is an account of the last truffle hunting virgin in France and Fisher’s heartbreaking description of her last meal with a favorite waiter. Although the book did not sell especially well, most critics comprehended that Fisher’s work was a new and singular contribution to American food writing. The New York Times opined, "The truth is that it is stamped on every page with a highly individualized personality." And the Chicago Tribune characterized it as "such a delicate emulsion that is difficult to tell whether it is the historical and literary references or the author’s observations that are the book’s basic flavor." Publisher’s orange cloth with black and gold titles and gilt-stamped spine decorations. Cloth fading along the spine and extremities. Jacket brittle and a bit shelf worn, with some chipping to the spine ends and front folds; otherwise a very good copy..

        BLACK LEGION (156pp Original Mimeographed REVISED FINAL DRAFT SCREENPLAY from the 1937 Humphrey Bogart Crime-Noir)

      Burbank: Warner Brothers, 1937. (Bogart, Humphrey) Original 156pp mimeographed FINAL DRAFT SCREENPLAY (complete with blue revision pages) for the 1937 Warner Brothers film BLACK LEGION starring HUMPHREY BOGART -- the story of an average guy who finds himself lured into joining a secret organization called the "Black Legion" modeled on the Ku Klux Klan with deadly consequences; it is based on the true story taken from the headlines of the day. THE BLACK LEGION served as a plum lead role for Humphrey Bogart during the era in which he was usually 2nd or 3rd billed and might have been a breakout role had Warner Brothers promoted the movie -- instead Bogart would have to wait four more years until THE MALTESE FALCON and HIGH SIERRA to achieve fame. The film was directed by Archie L. Mayo (with some assistance from Michael Curtiz...who later directed Bogart in CASABLANCA) and co-starred Ann Sheridan, Dick Foran, and Erin O'Brien-Moore. It was written by Abem Finkel and re-written by novelist William Wister Haynes. This original 1937 mimeographed script is housed in brad-bound pale blue original Warner Brothers covers which although labeled "Part 1" actually also contain within it parts 2 and 3 -- which were bound into the covers later as was often normal practice in that era of movie-making. Part 4 is a staple and paper-clipped 'added-last' separate section which follows on in the pagination perfectly but clearly no-one at the time bothered to remove the original brass brads and officially insert it...instead it was just stuck inside the back of the script -- which is how we found it. The screenplay is dated 8/1/36, with blue revision pages (dated 8/4/36) interspersed throughout. Contains studio perforated cover page used to keep track of the distributed scripts (receipt extracted here as is the norm). This final section is dated 8/25/36 and contains pages 141-156. The last two pages however are not stapled -- rather they are paper-clipped (old rust marks serve as evidence) and are ragged in appearance and the last page has unfortunately gone missing. Despite lacking the final page, it remains true that this is an exceedingly rare opportunity to own an original Bogart film script from the 1930s. After looking at auction records and library databases, there seems to be no other examples of this script to be found and this may be the only example to survive...not surprising as THE MALTESE FALCON (1941), a far-more-famous and high profile Warner Brothers script released at roughly the same time and looking extremely similar in appearance to this one, is known only by a few surviving copies. . Signed. Printed Wrappers. Very Good.
