        [Original Art]: Black Mother Goose: Eight Murals or Friezes Depicting African-American Children as Characters from Nursery Rhymes

      [Circa 1937]. Eight murals or friezes depicting African-American children as characters from nursery rhymes. Meant to be hung or in a continuous pattern, the mural consists of eight oil paintings on canvas, each of which measures 19" x 82", and if hung together, they would total about 55 feet long. Each canvas is currently gently rolled, with a protective tissue wrapper. There are small cracks in the paint, with no loss and they are overall fine. A remarkable and enigmatic mural illustrating African-American children in themes from various nursery rhymes including the Mother Goose rhymes, (especially from "There was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe"), themes from Alice in Wonderland, Little Black Sambo, and others. Some of the panels are signed and/or dated in 1937 by Marion Mackenzie Heywood, a Philadelphia based artist, of whom we know little. .

        Inimi cicatrizate

      Bucharest: Universala, nd 1937 - Octavo, wrappers, 232pp. Max Blecher (1909-38) was a remarkable writer of genius who was confined to a body cast after being diagnosed with Pott’s disease at age 19. Blecher carried on regular correspondence with literary and philosophical luminaries including Gide and Heidegger, published in Breton’s La surrealism au service a la revolution, and won his place easily among the Romanian surrealists (Voronca, Bogza, Pana, etc) as a working member. His work is completely remarkable and fresh, and compares favorably with Bruno Schulz, Walser and Kafka in scope and depth. Two books were published in his lifetime and this soon after. He died shortly after completing Inimi Cicatrizate (Scarred Hearts), a novel depicting life, love and death in a sanitorium. This novel was finished immediately after Blecher’s surrealistic fantasy Intamplari in irealitatea imediata. Blecher's friend Sasa Pana had INIME CICATRIZATE published shortly after the author's death. This first edition is quite rare: not found in worldcat, and virtually unobtainable. In very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        To Have and Have Not

      NY: Scribner. 1937. A novel about a reluctant Caribbean gun runner, which brought the author criticism for its heavy-handed attempt to infuse the story with the fashionable left wing politics of the time. As his first novel since A Farewell to Arms, any book would have been found wanting; and even though we do not look to Hemingway's novels for piercing political analysis, the sympathies expressed in this book are exactly those that drove him to Spain during the Spanish Civil War in futile support of the Spanish Republic -- one of the defining events of Hemingway's life. Basis for the 1944 movie with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall and a screenplay by William Faulkner. Very near fine with just a few unobtrusive smudges to the boards and a faint shadow on the flyleaf; in a very near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing to the spine and spine folds. First Edition. Hardcover.

"Of Mice and Men (the title is drawn from Robert Burns's poem "To A Mouse": "The best laid schemes o' mice and men / Gang aft a-gley / An' leave us naught but grief an' pain / For promised joy") marks a deliberate change from Steinbeck's previous work, In Dubious Battle (1936). In this new project, Steinbeck chose to work within a narrower framework . . . concentrat[ing] on a small number of characters as Steinbeck tells the story of migrant ranch laborers in carefully detailed settings. . . . From the very beginning, not only are readers given a call to social reform (the plight of the migrant worker is bleak and unlikely to change), but they also see that such men possess an American dream shared by all levels of society. Even though George and Lennie are different in size, although one is mentally sharp and the other retarded, they both have their dream of ownership and independence." (The Literary Encyclopedia) N.

        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."

        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.
