        SWISS MISS (1938)

      MGM / Hal Roach 1938 - Vintage original 41 x 81" (102 x 202 cm.) three sheet poster style A, USA. Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Greta Natzler, Walter Woolf King, Eric Blore, dir: John G. Blystone; Hal Roach / MGM. One of the finest of all posters by the legendary artist Al Hirschfeld. MGM employed Hirschfeld numerous times throughout the 1930s to design campaigns in his unique caricature art for several comedies, and particularly for the great comedy team of Laurel and Hardy. Operetta was combined with comedy in this story of two mousetrap salesmen who hope to strike it rich in Switzerland. They are swindled out of their money by a cheese maker and must work off their hotel debt. One way is by moving the piano of an operetta composer (whose chambermaid wife Ollie has fallen in love with) across a rope bridge over the Alpines, a bridge on which they meet a gorilla. Only Stan and Ollie could get into a mess like this. The locations were achieved by filming at Big Bear Lake and Lake Arrowhead, CA. On the poster with the boys is Greta Natzler, Austrian-born operetta singer who made a few films in Germany and England prior to this. This would be her only American film, and it would be her last. This is, needless to say, an extremely scarce poster, and when viewed in person its colors are really vibrant! On linen, NEAR FINE.

        Early Typed Letter Signed, 4to on "The Criterion" stationery, 4to London, July 8, 1938.

      - Eliot's best known work is his poem, "The Wasteland" (1922). His other well known poems include "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock," (1915) his first important poem, "Four Quartets" (1943) and his play, "Murder in the Cathedral" (1935). Eliot founded and edited the influential literary journal, "The Criterion," which provided a literary forum for many prominent contemporary writers. The journal did not attain financial stability until 1928 when it was steadily issued until 1939. This letter bears the letterhead of the journal. Fine in association to "The Criterion." In this period, Eliot wrote the play, "Family Reunion" (1939). He writes to Ossia Trilling of the Incorporated Stage Society responding to their selection of him to become a member. "On mature reflection.I must decline the proposed honour. I have already as many public associations as I can adequately cope with and I gave a strong objection to being a merely nominal member." He signs, "T. S. Eliot." [Joshua] Ossia Trilling (1913-94), Eliot's corespondent, was a theater critic and occasional theater director and actor. Connected with the Incorporated Stage Society, Trilling directed the British premiers of Auguste Strindberg's plays, "The Road to Damascus, " and "Queen Christina." [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        OUR TOWN with an AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS)

      New York: Coward-McCann, Inc., (1938) New York: Coward-McCann, Inc., (1938). First Edition. Hardcover. Some sunning to covers. About Very Good, lacking the dustwrapper. The letter has a crease from folding, otherwise Fine, with envelope. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the half-title page: "For Roger Seccombe/with the best wishes of/Thornton Wilder/New Haven/November/1938." Laid in is a 2-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS) "Thornton Wilder" written on the recto and verso of a single sheet of personal stationery addressed to Seccombe and inserted in a handwritten, postmarked envelope addressed by Wilder to Roger Seccombe dated 25 October 1941 tipped in at the front endpaper. In full: "Many thanks for your letter. It is a great pleasure to hear from any relative or friend of my friend whom I admire so much. I wish I were in Chicago and could have some talks with your son. However, I rejoined the faculty this past summer alone, after four years' absence, and do not foresee when I shall return there again. This is a double disappointment, because I should also like to ask him many questions about Antioch -- a place which all teachers watch with such interest. I have just returned from England where I spent the month of September and I am very eager -- if all my accumulated work will only permit -- to go up to Peterboro and tell Mary of all the absorbing and sad and finally magnificent things I saw there. Tell your son that I hope to see him some day and never to hesitate to call on me, if he hears that I am in the vicinity. Sincerely yours, Thornton Wilder." In September of 1941, Wilder went to England to attend a congress of the International PEN (Poets, Essayists, and Novelists) Club. The main theme of the congress was "Literature and the World after the War," but the heart of the issue was the responsibility of the writer in time of war. Wilder was part of a vocal group that opposed the president of British PEN, Storm Jameson, who insisted that members commit themselves exclusively to propaganda for the Allied cause. (Stein, Gertrude; Wilder; Thornton; Burns, Edward McNall; Dydo, Ulla E.; Rice, William. THE LETTERS OF GERTRUDE STEIN AND THORNTON WILDER. New Haven: Yale University Press, 2006; page 297). When not caught up in navigating the politics of PEN, Wilder wrote to American educational philosopher Robert Maynard Hutchins that his days in London, "were crowded with inspections of ruins, defense activities, airplane factories, bomber commands, luncheons, interviews with works, journalists. Ministers, dinners, writers, and so on" (Wilder, Thornton; Wilder, Robin G.; Bryer, Jackson R. THE SELECTED LETTERS OF THORNTON WILDER. New York: Harper Perennial, 2009; page 400). It is perhaps to this variety of experiences while in London which Wilder refers in this letter when he says, "I have just returned from England where I spent the month of September and I am very eager -- if all my accumulated work will only permit -- to go up to Peterboro and tell Mary of all the absorbing and sad and finally magnificent things I saw there.

From 1914 to 1931, Danish aristocrat Baroness Karen Blixen owned and operated a coffee plantation in Kenya. After the plantation failed, she returned to Europe and began to write under the pen name Isak Dinesen.

Basis for the film bearing the same name, directed by Sydney Pollack, starring Robert Redford and Meryl Streep, which went on to win seven Academy Awards.

The main theme of the congress was "Literature and the World after the War," but the heart of the issue was the responsibility of the writer in time of war. Wilder was part of a vocal group that opposed the president of British PEN, Storm Jameson, who insisted that members commit themselves exclusively to propaganda for the Allied cause. (Stein, Gertrude; Wilder; Thornton; Burns, Edward McNall; Dydo, Ulla E.; Rice, William. THE LETTERS OF GERTRUDE STEIN AND THORNTON WILDER. New Haven: Yale University Press, 2006; page 297). When not caught up in navigating the politics of PEN, Wilder wrote to American educational philosopher Robert Maynard Hutchins that his days in London, "were crowded with inspections of ruins, defense activities, airplane factories, bomber commands, luncheons, interviews with works, journalists. Ministers, dinners, writers, and so on" (Wilder, Thornton; Wilder, Robin G.; Bryer, Jackson R. THE SELECTED LETTERS OF THORNTON WILDER. New York: Harper Perennial, 2009; page 400). It is perhaps to this variety of experiences while in London which Wilder refers in this letter when he says, "I have just returned from England where I spent the month of September and I am very eager -- if all my accumulated work will only permit -- to go up to Peterboro and tell Mary of all the absorbing and sad and finally magnificent things I saw there." Some sunning to covers. About Very Good, lacking the dustwrapper. The letter has a crease from folding, otherwise Fine, with envelope [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        History of a Fishing Trip: Written to Order by the Keeper of the Records

      Privately printed by the author 1938 - Brown cloth-backed boards with cover title in gilt; 8vo; 130pp; not illustrated; limited to 100 unnumbered copies. A salmon fishing trip to the Jupiter River, Anticosti Island, Quebec, Canada in the summer of 1933. There were 5 sports present: Ward, Douglas, McCloy, Lowery and Belknap, the president of Consolidated Paper, whom the previous four met in Montreal and convinced him to join the party. A successful venture, indeed, as nearly 150 salmon were taken. Although Lowery's name is not listed as the author, it is assumed he is the keeper of the records. An appendix at end of book lists all the anglers, the pools and their catches. One of only a handful of books written about salmon fishing at Anticosti as the OCLC locates but 3 copies. This copy in very good condition with slight rubbing along extremities, internally clean. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
