        An American in Paris

      [New York?]: Privately printed. [circa 1938]. First. Facsimile of the handwritten score. Folio. Full leather, ruled with a Greek key design, and lettered in gilt. Blue silk endpapers, all edges gilt. Fine. Laid in is a Typed Letter Signed dated 12 April 1938, from Abraham Ellis to Gershwin's mother, Rose (who was the unmarried composer's heir). Ellis announces in the letter that he has just purchased the Manhattan Opera House (which became the Manhattan Center), and that with Rose's permission, he would like to rename the rebuilt auditorium the Gershwin Room. This was apparently a private photographic reproduction of the score that was produced for family and friends, before the manuscript was eventually donated to the Library of Congress. Gershwin's mother's copy, with the letter dated less than a year after the composer's untimely death. A classic of 20th Century composition, and inspiration for the Vincente Minnelli film, scripted by Alan Jay Lerner around Gershwin's music and starring Gene Kelly, Leslie Caron, and Oscar Levant. .

        Aunt Sara's Wooden God

      Boston: Christopher Publishing House. (1938). First. First edition. Foreword by Langston Hughes. 271pp., frontispiece portrait of the author. Fine in a just about fine dustwrapper with a couple of tiny tears. A novel by a leading African-American actress who played the wife of Moses in the play Green Pastures, starred with Paul Robeson in the important Oscar Michaeux film Body and Soul, and starred in the play Mulatto for a year on Broadway. For those with more modern tastes, Gilbert can be heard singing on the soundtrack of David Lynch's classic cult film Eraserhead. The author, a native of Jacksonville, Florida, set the novel in the rural South from whence she came. Hughes, in his introduction, compares this novel to Hurston's Jonah's Gourd Vine and George Henderson's Ollie Miss. Gilbert's collected works were recently compiled and edited by Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Not in the Catalogue of the Blockson Collection. Rare in jacket, only the second copy we've seen thus. .

        Livret de folastries (with etchings by Aristide Maillol)

      Paris: Ambroise Vollard, 1938 - Illustrated with 43 original etchings (16 full-page and hors-texte) by Aristide Maillol, many of which are quite erotic. From a total edition of 230 copies, this is ONE OF 35 ON JAPAN PAPER. Only the copies on Japan are signed with Maillol's monogram, as this copy is. (Note: the individual etchings are not signed in this or in any other known copy. I once saw a copy with poorly forged penciled monograms on each of the hors-texte etchings, though.) This copy furthermore contains another etching by Maillol, "Feuille d'etudes" (Guerin 379), never published and extremely rare (this particular etching is illustrated in a full-page plate in Vollard's autobiography). Although Maillol illustrated several books with lithographs and woodcuts, this is the only one he did with etchings and, in fact, it contains almost the entirety of his work in this medium. One of Vollard's last great books: the great publisher died before the book was completed. According to Strachan, one of Vollard's "finest masterpieces." (p. 36) Small quarto, loose in original wraps as issued. Fine. References: Skira 217 (illustrated), Erving 17 (illus.), Guerin 332-374, Johnson 190 (illus.), Rauch 143, Wheeler p. 106 (illus.), Vollard p. 68 (illus.), Jentsch 33 (illus.), Strachan 337, Carteret IV, p. 347: "La seule et belle illustration de l'artiste gravee a l'eau-forte; elle est tres recherchee et cotee, surtout sur japon."

        TO BEG I AM ASHAMED. The Authentic Autobiography of a London Prostitute.

      The Vanguard Press, New York 1938 - First US Edition. Co-authored by Greene with Ronald Matthews. In England, the book published by Routledge, was suppressed. The "The Public Morality Council", alerted by reviews notified the Home Secretary who pressured Routledge to withdraw the book. There was quite a stir & Greene literally took off to Mexico at the time to avoid a potential libel action. As a consequence to Greene collectors, the UK 1st book is as rare as the rarest of Greene titles, especially in any sort of dustwrapper. After Routledge withdrew the book & pulped the run, it was published in Paris, June, 1938 by Jack Kahane, father of Maurice Girodias. Another edition was published in London in 1954. This is the true first US 1938 edition & very scarce in its own right & not often seen in dustwrapper. A very good or better copy showing a bit of fade to the extremities of the delicate blue cloth, partial binding offsetting at the endpapers, in an excellent original dustwrapper showing minimal use, & a touch of foxing, still about fine . Not including in Roland Wobbe's GG bibliography. A very nice copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Enemies of Promise

      London: George Routledge & Sons, Ltd.,, 1938. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt. Binding rubbed, some wear to extremities, lower joint and hinges cracked, ghost of Boots library shield to upper board, remains of issue slip to rear pastedown, rear free endpaper defective, contents faintly toned, spots and small damaged areas to pages 27, 55 and 56, and 208 and 209. A poor copy. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Yvonne and Jamie [the publisher Hamish Hamilton and his wife] from their friend and admirer Cyril", above an Italian verse quotation from Giacomo Leopardi crossed out by Connolly, noted "correction", and attempted again (though still incorrect). On the title page he has signed his name and expanded the printed epigram from Leopardi by seven words in manuscript. With underlinings in pencil and pen to pages 254, 263, and 318. The fact that Connolly would present his future publisher with such a copy of his own book, probably rescued from a second-hand shop, sheds evocative light on the indigent squalor of English literary life at this time.

        Autograph musical manuscript being part of his incidental music to the comedy "La femme barbe," first performed in 1938

      - Delvincourt, a French composer, was appointed director of the Versailles Conservatory in 1931 and of the Paris Conservatoire in 1941. "His most important decisions were the founding of the Orchestre des Cadets and a chorus (so avoiding the evacuation of his pupils to Germany), and his invitation to Messiaen, despite much comment, to teach the philosophy of music.

        Brighton Rock

      William Heinemann, London, UK 1938 - No other printings are mentioned, so this is absolutely a first printing - Description: A beautiful and vibrant facsimile dust-jacket accompanies the book; so you can see how the book looked exactly when it was first sold! - Iconic pink and black cover design. This wonderful book certainly stands out from the crowd! Strong boards firmly held to inner page block. Small tear to the spine cloth at the top and small chip to bottom. Looks amazingly clean with very minor soiling. Slight scuffing to corners. All 361 pages are present. The front and rear blank end-pages are missing and there is a small nick to the page edge on the full title page. Pages are browned and foxed throughout.There is a crack at the margin at the very last page. - Graham Greene on Brighton Rock: -- Brighton Rock I began in 1937 as a detective story and continued, I am sometimes tempted to think, as an error of judgment¿The first fifty pages of Brighton Rock are all that remain of the detective story; they would irritate me, if I dared to look at them now, for I know I ought to have had the strength of mind to remove them, and to start the story again¿however difficult the revisions might have proved ¿ with what is now called Part Two -- .the setting of Brighton Rock may in part belong to an imaginary geographic region. Though Nelson Place has been cleared away since the war, and the Brighton race gangs were to all intents quashed forever as a serious menace at Lewes Assizes a little before the date of my novel, and even Sherry's dance hall has vanished, they certainly did exist; there was a real Nelson Place, and a man was kidnapped on Brighton front in a broad daylight of the thirties, though not in the same circumstances as Hale, and his body was found somewhere out towards the Downs flung from a car. Colleoni, the gang leader, had his real prototype who had retired by 1938 and lived a gracious Catholic life in one of the Brighton crescents, although I found his name was still law when I demanded entrance by virtue of it to a little London nightclub called The Nest behind Regent Street¿ -- All the same I must plead guilty to manufacturing this Brighton of mine as I never manufactured Mexico or Indochina. There were no living models for these gangsters, nor for the barmaid who so obstinately refused to come alive. I had spent only one night in the company of someone who could have belonged to Pinkie's gang¿a man from the Wandsworth dog-tracks whose face had been carved because he was suspected of grassing to the bogies after a killing in the stadium. (He taught me the only professional slang I knew, but one cannot learn a language in one night however long.) -- .The Pinkies are the real Peter Pans ¿ doomed to be juvenile for a lifetime. They have something of a fallen angel about them, a morality which once belonged to another place. The outlaw of justice always keeps in his heart the sense of justice outraged ¿ his crimes have an excuse and yet he is pursued by the Others. The Others have committed worse crimes and flourish. The world is full of Others who wear the masks of Success, of a Happy Family. Whatever crime he may be driven to commit the child who doesn't grow up remains the great champion of justice. "An eye for an eye." "Give them a dose of their own medicine." As children we have all suffered punishments for faults we have not committed, but the wound has soon healed. With Raven and Pinkie the wound never heals. - Thanks for your interest and I hope you like the book enough to buy it. --- Our orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days. - Regards from Arabella.
