        The Nonesuch Dickens. The Complete Works of Charles Dickens

      London: Bloomsbury, The Nonesuch Press, 1937-1938. Limited edition of 877 copies. Tall octavo. 23 volumes + an original etched steel plate. Printed on hand-made linen rag paper specially made for this edition. Copiously illustrated and hand-pulled from the original plates and blocks. The Nonesuch Press managed to purchase from Chapman and Hall, all the plates from which the original illustrations were printed and included one plate with each set. "Of these there are no more than 877 of major importance; and the edition has therefore been limited, not artificially but of necessity, to 877." Every one of these illustrations was made under the supervision of the author himself, often from his own suggestions. The steel plate included with this set is entitled "The Ghost's Walk", engraved by H.K. Browne ('Phiz') and numbered 698. It appears opposite p.512 in "Bleak House". Housed in its original custom made clamshell box with the binding uniform to the set, along with a letter of authenticity, signed by Arthur Waugh on Chapman & Hall letterhead. Linen buckram, with gilt stamped, black morocco-leather labels. From "The Nonesuch Dickens. A Note on the Format" by Francis Meynell: "... It is, of course, the general habit to give a set strict uniformity in its binding. But ... these volumes will be chosen from the shelves and read as books, not as numbered items of a set; why, therefore, should they not have their own individuality? ... All the volumes are bound in a uniform style and material and have similar labels, as befits a set: but each binding has been given a different colour, as befits a separate entity. The drabness of repetition is avoided, the principle of unity is maintained." Meynell chose buckram over leather for its range of colours and its durability. With this set, he has proved to be correct. Aside from some small minor scratches to the front cover of "Edwin Drood & Christmas Stories", and a very light stain to the front cover of "Oliver Twist", the set is fine, clean and bright without the usual fading. Unquestionably, one of the most complete and beautiful editions of Dickens' works. Podeschi, The Gimbel Collection, D212, Nonesuch Dickensiana 'Prospectus', Nonesuch Dickens. A Note on the Format.. Limited Edition. Hardcover.

        BLAUE LICHT, DAS [BLUE LIGHT, THE] (1932; 1937 reissue)

      Germany 1937 - Vintage original 9 ¼ x 11 ¾" (23 x 30 cm.) double weight glossy silver gelatin print still photo, Germany. Leni Riefenstahl, Mathias Wieman, Beni Fuhrer, Max Holzboer, Martha Mair, dir: Leni Riefenstahl; Sokal. A beautiful character portrait of the legendary actress, director, writer, editor and producer, Leni Riefenstahl. Riefenstahl performed all these creative tasks on this film for her own production company. This is the story of Junta, a woman hated by the people of her village, who suspect her of being a witch. She is the only person who can climb the nearby mountains and has discovered the mysteries of the blue light during her climbs. She is cast out of the town and goes to live in the mountains. She shares the secret of the blue light with one man, but he betrays her. Groundbreaking filmmaking at the time, it was an early sound film (though a silent version was also made) to be shot on high mountain locations and employed the people who lived in the mountains as the supporting players. Riefenstahl had made a series of mountain films with director Arnold Fanck in the years prior and was now ready to make her own films. So impressed by this film was Adolf Hitler that he asked Riefenstahl to make TRIUMPH OF THE WILL. Riefenstahl was a master in lighting and black-and-white photography, evident even in the still photography for this film. Her studio logos are at the bottom left and right margin edges, the title at center and a German blind stamp is at the lower right corner of the image. Slight corner edge wear only. This is still number 32. FINE.

        Autograph Letter Signed, in French, 4to, n.p., n.d.

      - Pagnol most likely refers to his 1937 film "Regain" ("Harvest,") for which Swiss composer Arthur Honegger composed the music. The Marius trilogy (Marius, Fanny and Cesar), filmed between 1931 and 1936, are viewed as Pagnol's most important cinematic contribution. To Mr. E. Fasquelle, editor, Pagnol writes about film. "I had two parts in my film. One, where I had my characters speak. The other, where I left that to the cinematography and to Honnegger's [sic] music. The musical segments are very boring, I am told. I am in the process of cutting out as many as I can but it is a delicate thing because of Honnegger [sic], who is a charming lad." He signs in full, "Marcel Pagnol," then adds a note about having received payment.

      [Culver City]: Selznick International, 12 June 1937.. [1],65,[1] leaves. Quarto. Mimeographed typescript, printed on rectos only. Bradbound in canary yellow stencil-printed studio wrappers. A few stray smudges and minor marks to wrappers, otherwise near fine. Denoted the "final shooting script" of Hecht's adaptation of a story idea by James H. Street, but in fact, an early draft in terms of the film's genesis. A number of notable script doctors were called in after Hecht disassociated himself from the production, allegedly over Selznick's refusal to cast John Barrymore in the lead. Among those contributing to the film's final script were Moss Hart, Sidney Howard, George S. Kaufman, Ring Lardner, Jr., and Budd Schulberg. Carole Lombard (in her only Technicolor film), Frederic March and Charles Winninger starred, under the direction of William Wellman. The film featured a score by Oscar Levant, Max Steiner, and others, and employed then innovative use of color process effects, montage and rear screen projection. Duplicate from the Selznick Archives.

        Dream Symbols of the Individuation Process

      Bailey Island, Maine, [1937]. Short former owner's inscription (not Dorothy Norman), binding cracked but holding; a good copy in somewhat stained and mottled boards.. First Edition. Quarto. A nearly verbatim transcript of C.J. Jung's 1936 seminar Dream Symbols of the Individuation Process at Bailey Island, Maine, based on the dreams of nuclear physicist and Nobel Prize winner Wolfgang Pauli. From the library of noted photographer and patron of the arts, Dorothy Norman, with her (brief) notes in pencil throughout. The presentation was originally given in 1935 at the Eranoc conference in Ascona, Switzerland, and was later reworked in Jung's 1944 publication Psychology and Alchemy. Divided into a series of six lectures, given between September 20 and 25, 1936, the Bailey Island seminar was conducted in English in front of approximately 100 American analysts and was repeated in New York the following year. A valuable document on the development of Jung's theories of dreams, providing insight into his presentation techniques and thoughts on the relationship between physics and psychology. With eight loose typed pages, relating to the lectures, laid in.

      New York: Associated American Artists, 1937. Lithograph. Image measures 9.4 x 12". This lithograph by the esteemed American artist Thomas Hart Benton shows a father pulling his two children on a mule-drawn cart. The children's expressions and body language demonstrate fatigue, and it is likely that their journey has been long. This lithograph documents a migratory stage in American history in a fashion typical of Benton: surfaces and skies undulate rhythmically, drawing the viewer into the scene and creating a sense of atmosphere that speaks of the time the drawing was made. According to the Library of Congress, Benton once remarked of this image: "From a drawing made 1928--in North Carolina Smokey Mountain country. With a companion driving the car I followed these mill people till the drawing was finished." The lithograph was printed and distributed in 1937 through department stores and mail order, with the intention of making art accessible to those with fewer available funds. The print has been professional cleaned but has a minor scuff to lower margin from repairs. Signed in the plate and again, below, in pencil. Edition of 250. Notes along the bottom margin suggest dimensions.Thomas Hart Benton (1889--1975) is one of the foremost artists of the Regionalist art movement in the first half of the 20th century. Best known as a painter and muralist, he created dreamy scenes of everyday people that often attest to the changing landscape of industrialization. Although his works are strongly concentrated in the American Midwest, they also turn at times to the South and West of the country. This wonderful lithograph, while in one sense gloomy, also displays the hard work and resilience that accompanied Depression-era cultural attitudes.

      Little, Brown & Co., BOSTON, MASS 1937 - Peabody, of the Boston blueblood scions, was an alcoholic who helped pioneer the philosophy that alcoholism was an actual disease, rather than merely a weak constitution manifesting poor behavior. He went on to provide counseling services to many in NYC. It is generally regarded that some of his phrases ("Half-way measures were to no avail"; "Once a drunkard always a drunkard." and even the step program were liberally made use of by Bill Wilson, who went on to found that famous recovery organization whose initials are the first letter of the alphabet, doubled. Silver-dollar-sized blemish in lower right corner of front board, no doubt from a drink (water we hope!) spilled at least a half-century ago, if not more. Extremely scarce in any edition.
