It offers a unique glimpse at life in colonial East Africa. Interestingly, while this first American edition credits Isak Dinesen on its dust jacket, the first English edition cites Karen Blixen as the author. In 1985, Out of Africa was adapted into a film of the same name starring Robert Redford and Meryl Streep under the direction of Sydney Pollock.. First American Edition.. Hard Cover.

      1938 - 22 aquarelles pour le spectacle-opérette de Mogador, sur papier cartonné beige, 21 signées en bas à droite, 4 datées (1938), rehauts d'or et de blanc, mine de plomb, feuilles de 32 x 25 environ, dessins de 30 x 15 cm. environ. Umberto BRUNELLESCHI (1879 Toscane-Italie, 1949 Paris), peintre, portraitiste, illustrateur, artisre de la mode, publicitaire, affichiste, décorateur italien. Influencé par la Comedia dell'Arte, mais également les créations de la troupe de DIAGHILEV, il crée des costumes pour les Folies Bergère, le Casino de Paris, le théâtre du Châtelet, des théâtres new-yorkais, italiens et allemands. Il commence sa carrière de costumier en 1914, avec une revue de scène aux "Bouffes parisiennes", montée par Madame RASIMI pour laquelle il crée des costumes sur les masques vénitiens. Il travaille ensuite à Florence au théâtre de la Pergola pour deux pièces (1915), puis, toujours pendant la guerre, à la Scala de Milan. A son retour à Paris, il travaille pour le music-hall : les années 1925-1938 sont celles de ses plus grands succès. Sa renommée est telle qu'en 1924, Giacomo PUCCINI lui écrit après avoir composé "Turandot" : "Cher Brunelleschi, Turandot est quasiment terminé. Je pense à vous pour les figures". L'opéra, qui se donne à la Scala en 1925, est un succès. En 1928, il travaille à New-York, sur l'invitation du danseur Léonide MASSINE. Son style se modifie et devient plus structuré et graphique : il met au point sa fameuse silhouette oblongue. Ses motifs décoratifs s'attachent à de nouvelles sources, notamment grâce à la danseuse Joséphine BAKER dans l'opérette d'OFFENBACH, "Créole", en 1934. Les années suivantes voient sa participation intensive aux revues des Folies Bergères et des théâtres du Châtelet ("Au Soleil du Mexique") et de Mogador ("Balalaïka") et enfin le "Turandot" de PUCCINI, mis en scène en 1940 (Cristina Nuzzi, Umberto Brunelleschi, Illustrazione, moda et teatro (1879-1949), F.M.R., 1979, p. 22). Etudes de costume pour "Balalaïka", l'opérette en 3 actes et 12 tableaux d’Eric Maschwitz inspirée par la Révolution Russe de 1917. Créée à Londres en 1936, Balalaïka est remarquée par Maurice Lehmann, le directeur du Châtelet, qui loue le théâtre de Mogador pour l'occasion. Ce spectacle avec couplets d’Henri Wernert, musique de Georges Posford et Bernard Grün, airs additionnels de Robert Stolz est joué pour la première fois le 24 septembre 1938. Infimes déchirures, petites rousseurs, forte brunissure sur le dernier dessin. Oeuvre originale

        The Spanish Earth, the first state of the limited edition

      The J. B. Savage Company, Cleveland, Ohio 1938 - This is the rare first state, distinguished by the illustrated endpapers with which only 50-100 copies of this numbered limited edition were issued. The Spanish Earth publishes a transcript of Hemingway’s narration for the sound track for the 1937 film of the same title, the purpose of which was to raise money for the Loyalist (Republican, anti-Franco) cause during the Spanish Civil War. This is copy is hand-numbered "111" of the limited edition of 1000 copies. Per Hanneman, "There are two issues of the first edition. The first issue has pictorial endpapers, front and back, showing a large F.A.I. [Federacion Anarquista Iberica] banner, in orange, flying over the heads of advancing soldiers." Hemingway protested the F.A.I. endpapers, and so there were only "between 50 and 100 copies of the first issue." The second issue has plain tan endpapers. This excellent copy of the first issue bears the striking first issue F.A.I. endpapers. Condition approaches fine. The illustrated tan cloth binding is square and tight with sharp corners and no toning. We would grade this copy as truly fine if not for a few trivial and small brown stains. The contents are pristine; we find no toning, spotting, or previous ownership marks. The binding is protected with a removable, clear mylar cover. Ernest Miller Hemingway (1899-1961) was an American writer of novels and short stories, a larger than life figure whose writing and persona made him a true literary giant of the 20th century. Born in a Chicago suburb, he developed an early passion for outdoor pursuits, spending time with his father at the family's summer home in Michigan. In his junior year of high school, he took a journalism class, and continued to be active in the school's newspaper and yearbook until graduation. His first job out of school was as a cub reporter for the Kansas City Star, whose style guide may have provided the basis for Hemingway's crisp writing style: "Use short sentences. Use short first paragraphs. Use vigorous English. Be positive, not negative." Responding to a recruiting campaign in 1918, Hemingway volunteered, and served on the Italian front as an ambulance driver. He was seriously injured two months later, and returned home. Hemingway returned to Europe in the early 1920s as the foreign correspondent for the Toronto Star Weekly, living and working in Paris. It was here that he met and fell under the influence of the so-called "Lost Generation", including the likes of James Joyce and F. Scott Fitzgerald. It was the latter's Great Gatsby that helped compel Hemingway to move beyond poems and short stories into novels. Hemingway returned to America in 1927 with his second wife. Hemingway continued to practice journalism and, in 1937, traveled to Spain to report on the Spanish Civil War for the North American Newspaper Alliance. The Spanish Civil War proved something of a personal and literary watershed for Hemingway. His wife, Pauline, was a devout Catholic who sided with the fascist regime of Franco, while Hemingway supported the Republicans. When Hemingway returned to Florida after Franco’s victory, he divorced Pauline and married Martha Gellhorn, with whom he had begun an affair while in Spain. Hemingway’s novel For Whom the Bell Tolls (1940), which takes place during the Spanish Civil War, was largely based on his experience in Spain. In 1953 Hemingway was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for The Old Man and the Sea. The following year he received the Nobel Prize in Literature, for "his mastery of the art of narrative, most recently demonstrated in The Old Man and the Sea, and for the influence that he has exerted on contemporary style".

        Éléments de police scientifique

      1938 - 4 volumes in-4 : I de 96 p. Paris, Hermann & Cie, 1938-1940, , 4 volumes in-4 : I de 96 p. et 8 pl.; II de 88p, 22pl. et 1pl. dépliante; III de 96p. et 21pl.; IV de 118p. et 16pl, broché, Série COMPLÈTE des "Actualités scientifiques et industrielles" consacrée à la Police scientifique et dirigée par Charles Sannié (1896-1957), médecin, oncologue et directeur du Service de l'Identité judiciaire de la Préfecture de Police à Paris. Charles Guérin médecin, collabore à la série. Les quatre volumes constituent un exposé complet des procédés de police scientifique pratiqués par le service de l'Identité Judiciaire de la Préfecture de Police à Paris. Leurs pratiques s'inspirent directement de l'école de Bertillon, criminologue à l'origine de l'anthropométrie judiciaire utilisée en France jusque dans les années 1970. Cette méthode d'identification repose "d'une part, sur la création d'un fichier de tous les détenus ou personnes ayant fait l'objet d'une arrestation, chaque fiche contenant une photographie profil-face et divers renseignements comme la couleur de l'iris, (.) les empreintes digitales (.) et, d'autre part, sur la mise au point d'un système de classement des fiches à partir des données anthropométriques". Cette intéressante série sur la criminalistique fournit aussi des explications sur certaines notions juridiques, sur le fonctionnement de l'administration judiciaire de l'époque, sur la classification des données et sur les abréviations usitées pour les éléments signalétiques. Les planches présentent des reproductions photographiques mettant en scène les prises de mensurations (taille, tête, certains membres comme le médius gauche, empreintes digitales, etc.) préconisées dans l'identification judiciaire. La description physique de l'individu (traits et particularités du visage puis forme de l'oreille droite et du crâne, type de cheveux, tatouages ou cicatrices, etc.) s'appuie sur l'anthropométrie photographique et sur des tableaux synoptiques des traits physionomiques. Exemplaires ayant appartenu à Jacques Delarue (1919-2014), résistant, historien et ancien commissaire de Police. On joint : - une fiche individuelle d'identification judiciaire vierge - 10 pages cartonnées manuscrites sur lesquelles sont détaillées les diverses particularités physiques du visage : contour général de la tête, oreille, nez, front, menton, sourcils, paupières, globes oculaires, lèvres, bouche, rides - une reproduction photographique du derme et des différentes couches de l'épiderme, avec annotations - un papier blanc recouvert d'encre, sur lequel on distingue des empreintes digitales. Le papier est accompagné d'une feuille où est visible l'empreinte d'une main - une fiche dactyloscopique vierge Nombreuses figures et tableaux dans le texte. Crime et châtiment, sous la direction de Jean Clair, p. 272. Dos du volume II abîmé mais bon état pour l'ensemble. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Screenplay]: Man About Town

      Paramount Pictures, (Los Angeles) 1938 - Screenplay. Quarto. (2), 22, 10, 8, 19, 39, 34pp. Stapled mimeographed sheets. Dated in December 27, 1938. A little darkening to the edges of the first page, else about fine. The second page, which lists the characters, has had the actors' names handwritten in. Boldly Signed on the front page by most of the principal players: Jack Benny, Dorothy Lamour, Edward Arnold, Phil Harris, Monty Woolley, Betty Grable, and Eddie "Rochester" Anderson. A pencil note on the page states: "June 25, 1939 from Joe," presumably the source of the signed script. The film, a musical comedy with Benny as a Broadway producer who cavorts with married women in order to get his preferred girlfriend Lamour jealous, was directed by Mark Sandrich, and written by Morrie Ryskind. A very nice collection of signatures, and presumably rarely found thus. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Manuscrit et tapuscrit complet constituant la version primitive de Thomas l'obscur.

      1938 - - 1938, 13,5x21cm et 21x27cm, 454 feuillets dont 322 manuscrits. - Exceptionnel ensemble complet de 454 feuillets manuscrits et tapuscrits, abondamment corrigés et raturés, constituant une version primitive de Thomas l'Obscur et mettant à jour le travail de composition de celle-ci à partir du tapuscrit précédant : Thomas le Solitaire. Ce document est constitué de deux états : un manuscrit de 275 feuillets et un ensemble de 179 feuillets composé de 132 feuilles du tapuscrit de Thomas le Solitaire entièrement corrigé et de 47 feuillets manuscrits intercalés. Le manuscrit de 275 pages se termine sur un renvoi à l'ensemble tapuscrit-manuscrit qui lui-même s'achève doublement sur la fin de Thomas le Solitaire (tapuscrit) et la fin de Thomas l'Obscur (manuscrit). Il apparaît que le tapuscrit-manuscrit est une première étape de travail antérieure au manuscrit proprement dit, mais forme avec celui-ci un ensemble indivisible puisque les passages de l'un à l'autre sont incessants. Les pages du manuscrit contiennent en effet régulièrement des renvois au tapuscrit-manuscrit et, à plusieurs reprises, la séquence des pages s'interrompt pour épouser la numérotation de l'ensemble tapuscrit-manuscrit. La version manuscrite comme la version tapuscrit-manuscrit diverge encore de manière significative du roman publié en 1941. Des passages appartenant au texte de Thomas le Solitaire sont toujours intégrés au manuscrit et les variantes par rapport au roman publié sont nombreuses. Ce précieux document marque donc un moment capital du travail de son auteur où le roman était encore en pleine gestation. Cet ensemble, unique, constitue sans aucun doute la plus importante source d'informations sur la genèse romanesque d'un des plus hermétiques romanciers du XXème siècle après Kafka.

      The First UK Printing published by P.S.King and Son Ltd in 1938.The BOOK is in near FINE condition. Original red cloth with gilt titling to the spine and the initials of the regiment gilt to the upper board.Covers are clean apart from a tiny black dot to the spine.Light pushing to the spine ends with a little fading and tiny splitting at the spine tips.A hint of toning to the text block.Free from inscriptions,erasures and markings. The endpapers are only very slightly tanned.27 leaves of sketch-maps bound in at the rear.The very scarce First edition,being one of just 500 copies privately produced by the author.As such this remains an extremely elusive title. The battalion included the authors of two of the most famous literary accounts of the Great War, Graves and Sassoon, with the latter contributing a chapter to the present work entitled "A Subaltern's Service in Camp and in Action," covering the period from March 12th to April 16th, 1917, which is described as, "An early draft of pages of Memoirs of an Infantry Officer." Graves offered to contribute, but Dunn was not an admirer of Goodbye to all that, and declined his offer. Graves is mentioned, disparagingly, a handful of times in the text. Dunn's is an extraordinary book, in the Face of Battle John Keegan described it as "one of the most interesting and revealing books of its type a genuinely truthful and fascinating picture of the war as it was for the infantry." Compiled in diary form from the reminiscences of around 50 members of the Battalion, it is without doubt the most authentic account of the experience of the Western Front at Battalion level. Collectible. Ashtonrarebooks welcomes direct contact.
