        (Photo album): Crookston, Minnesota

      Crookston, Minnesota, 1938. Fair. Octavo album. Spiral bound in flexible cloth wrappers. 121 gelatin silver images, various sizes, 3" x 4" probably being near the average. Many captioned in ink with dates and locations. The spirals are largely unspiraled, wrappers and some leaves chipped, about good; images are near fine. Album kept by a young woman, probably from Crookston, Minnesota, where many of the images are identified from, although some depict visits to realtively local areas (Bemiji, Grand Forks, N.D.) or vacations (Miami Beach and Lexington, Kentucky). The earliest images depict the compiler (usually identified as "Me") as a (probably high school) drum majorette, and later as a young wife (married to "John") and mother. Probably the largest percentage of identified images come from Crookston, and there are several images of the Crookston Pirates, a professional baseball team in the Northern League, with several players identified - it is possilbe that "John" was on the team. A pleasing albeit somewhat pedestrian album, in need of some modest preservation.

        Seven Photographs from the Aftermath of a Fatal Car Accident on Rt. 30, Outside Greensburg, PA

      Greensburg, PA, 1938. Paperback. Near Fine. Seven 8x 10 photographs of the scene of a deadly automobile accident on November 20th, 1938 at 3:20 am. The accident happened on Rt. 30, 3 miles East of Greensburg, PA. Joseph Seeno (Aged 24) and Dorothy Henninger (23) were killed in the crash, and two others were injured. The photographs show the mangled vehicles, the skid marks on the road shoulder, and the splintered telephone line that the vehicle crashed into. A subtle splatter of blood is present on the road in one photo, the only indication of life lost (Alas, the watchful eyes of T.J. Eckleburg were not present to witness this tragedy.) Near fine condition, with finger smudging to extremities of photographs. Housed in protective mylar. Digital images available upon request.

        Quatorze dessins originaux de nus féminins]

      - QUATORZE DESSINS ORIGINAUX de nus féminins, monogrammés et datés, en couleurs, exécutés à la mine de plomb, à l'aquarelle et au pastel, à Berlin vers 1938. Ces dessins au format: 21cm x12cm sont montés sur des feuilles de fort papier couleur chamois de 27cm x18 cm, et protégés par des serpentes de papier sulfurisé décoré. L'ensemble est présenté dans une reliure d’époque à spirale, plats en pleine toile écrue. Les femmes dévêtues ont le style des vedettes du music-hall des années trente. Ces compositions témoignent de la prédilection quasi obsessionnelle de l'artiste pour les parties pointues du corps féminin (seins, ongles) et de ses accessoires (talons de chaussures). Ces dessins sont d'une belle facture et d'un trait léger et précis. Leur habile dessinateur, Clemens SCHMALSTICH (1880-1960) était aussi et surtout un compositeur allemand d'opéras et de musiques de films et chef d'orchestre. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Gone with the Wind (Cast Signed)

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1938. Later printing. Very Good +/Very Good +. One of the copies that was circulated by the director, Victor Fleming, to give as a gift. In this case, gifted to Stan Johnson, art director at Fox Studios, and passed down through his family. Signed by the following cast and crew: Clark Gable (Rhett Butler), Vivien Leigh (Scarlett O'Hara), Olivia de Havilland (Melanie Hamilton), George Reeves (Brent Tarleton), Fred Crane (Stuart Tarleton), Laura Hope Crews (Aunt 'Pittypat' Hamilton), Jane Darwell (Mrs. Merriweather), Butterfly McQueen (Prissy), Alicia Rhett (India), Will Price (technical advisor), Richard Mueller (color consultant), and Ridgeway Callow (Assistant Director). Also signed by the wife of the recipient, Leola Y. Johnson. Passed to Stan and Leola's son James Douglas, an actor who was active from the late 1950s until the 80s, and then to his son, Cort Douglas (with signed letter of provenance from him). Grey cloth with titles stamped in blue, original dust jacket. Second October, 1938 printing, which makes sense given that production started late in 1938 and filming didn't begin until January 1939. Delays necessary to secure Clark Gable for the lead and find Vivien Leigh for the role of Scarlett. Book Very Good+ to Near Fine. Slight wear to the spine ends and outer hinges, minor offsetting from home-made paper dust wrapper (now discarded) on the half-title. In a Very Good+ dust jacket with several small chips and a few short tears. Book and dust jacket without repair or restoration. One of the great films of all time, signed by most of the key cast members and with impeccable provenance. A book that rarely comes on the market. Very Good + in Very Good + dust jacket.

        Exposition Wolfgang Paalen

      Paris: Galerie Renou et Colle, 1938. First Edition. Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. Near Fine. 7 pages plus 3 black-and-white plates. An early exhibition catalog with a 25-item checklist. Paalen, a native of Austria, had recently joined the Surrealists and earlier in 1938 he played a major role in the International Exposition of Surrealism. In this, his third (?) solo show, Paalen debuts his fumages, paintings made by holding paper over a candle flame so it would absorb the smoke. A reproduction one of these works extends over the front and rear wrappers of this pamplhet. Soon after this show, Paalen would follow Breton to Mexico, where Paalen would stay, becoming one of the most influential Latin American surrealists. Uncommon and important. First edition (first printing). A fine copy in wrappers (paperback) with a glassine wrapper that is a bit chipped at the top of the spine.

        Manuscripts]: [Volume One]: The Sambo Book; [Volume Two]: Romance of Sugar Loaf Mountain; Sambo and the Grapes; Pigs and Potato Club

      Baltimore, New York 1938 - Two volumes. A collection of racist dialect manuscripts by Isaac Coale, Jr. Bradbound into generic oak tag wrappers, one with the label of Isaac Coale, Jr., & Co. on the front wrap. Typed leaves (with mixed ribbon and carbon pages), with corrections in type and in pencil. Letter from Norman Vincent Peale dated in 1936 lauding the stories bound into the second volume. Signed by the author, at various places, as Isaac Coale, Sambo, or "Nigger Jim."The Baltimore (and later New York City) based Coale, Jr. wrote his book *Sambo Stories* which was published by Baltimore publisher Williams & Wilkins Company in 1898 with illustrations by Katharine Gassaway, predating Helen Bannerman's *Little Black Sambo* (which was published in England) by one year. Coale appears to have been a successful business man dealing in real estate and insurance in Baltimore, and later in "Burnrite Combustion Devices" in New York City. *OCLC* locates just four copies of the original 1898 printed edition. At that time, three copies are be found offered online for sale, with prices ranging between $1200 - $9500.The two volumes are as follows:1. *Sambo Book by Isaac Coale. Baltimore and New York*. Handwritten title page, a typed chapter list with hand-corrections, a second chapter list on the back of Isaac Coale, Jr. & Co. stationary (changing the name "Sambo" to "Lucy's Little Manservant" in each chapter), eight handwritten chapter title pages, each dated 1929, and 106 leaves of text that have been typed rectos only, plus an additional typed leaf hand-titled "Sambo's Song" and "signed" by "Sambo." Mostly clean copies with modest corrections in pencil. Although no illustrations are present, several of the chapter headings note "Illustrated by Roberta G. Glover." Our speculation is that the author was preparing a second edition which was never published. The original 1898 edition had five chapters that conform (with slight variations in title) to five of these chapters, but three of the chapters present here appear to be unique to this manuscript. The alterations on the variant chapter title lists exhibits perhaps the slightest development of racial sensitivity, changing "Sambo" to "Lucy's Little Manservant," although the character in question remains "Sambo" in the text.2. A collection of three stories. Typed leaves, heavily corrected in pencil. As follows:a. "Romance of Sugar Loaf Mountain." Typed title, with author's address in pencil, and 18 additional pages of text. Typed Letter Signed from the Rev. Norman Vincent Peale is bound in following the title page of this story. b. "Sambo and the Grapes." Handwritten title, illustration from newspaper with typed title ("Sambo and the Grapes"), and five additional typed pages, Signed in ink by "Sambo."c. "Pigs and Potato Club of Coonville, Georgia." Typed title page and four chapters, totaling another 13 pages of text typed on the verso of Isaac Coale, Jr. & Co. stationary, and Signed in pencil as both "Nigger Jim." and Isaac Coale. The final three leaves are laid in, apparently never bound with the others. The text masquerades as reports of the minutes of a black social club, reminiscent of the racist satire of *The Lime-Kiln Club.*Presumably a substantial amount of the material found in this manuscript is unpublished and unique.

        An American in Paris

      Privately printed, [New York?] 1938 - 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 volume 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.

        The Yearling.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1938. First edition of the author's Pulitzer Prize-winning classic. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. The Yearling was Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings' second novel that "produced one of literature's most poignant and convincing portraits of childhood" (DAB). "Rawlings' evocative descriptions of rural Florida and its people make The Yearling regional fiction at its best, yet the novel is universal in its depiction of the human experience. The book was awarded the Pulitzer Prize and made into a 1946 motion picture starring Gregory Peck and Jane Wyman" (Silvey, 551).

        Photo Albums]: Nazi Officer Training. Three Volumes

      Germany 1938 - Three albums. 1. Oblong quarto measuring 10" x 12.5" with paper boards; 2. string-tied oblong quarto measuring 8.5" x 12.5" tan cloth over paper boards; 3. small quarto measuring 9.5" x 8" textured tan and blue cloth. Together they contain 412 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 1.75" and 4.5" x 7", some with captions in German. Very good or better albums with some rubbing with near fine photographs.A collection of photographs contained in three albums of a German Wehrmacht soldier, referred to only as Conrad, beginning in 1932, during the voluntary years of the army before Hitler enforced conscription. The photos show a combination of leisure activities, including sailing, hiking, and going to the orchestra, as well as army training. The first album is the most heavily captioned of the three and begins with photos of the orchestra while Conrad was attending the 1932 Schutz festival, a celebration of the music of German composer, Heinrich Schutz. Following these photos are images of men hiking and skiing a summit in either Germany or Austria. These images show the men posing with ropes and walking sticks, seemingly experienced climbers.Conrad was also an avid sailor and is seen throughout the albums with friends boating in the North Sea. One section of photos shows the smiling German on a trip in May of 1932. They spent time on the beach and taking hikes. One group of photos shows Conrad and a young woman jumping off the docks and swimming. Other photos show rural Germany and Austria including various farms, with a woman tending to pigs and riding her motorcycle on a dirt road.By the fall of 1932 Conrad is seen participating in military training exercises. The men, shown on horseback practicing jumps and maneuvers, are smiling and happy in what appear to be officer uniforms. The Nazi party was gaining momentum and would soon take over German politics completely and these soldiers were seemingly early proponents of the new regime. He included pictorial postcards of early photos of Der Fuhrer in his albums. One photo shows a car of high ranking Nazi officers with swastika armbands driving past a crowd giving the Nazi salute. The albums continue to show army training along with the soldier's quarters and uniformed men. They are seen sitting in trenches, posing in fields, smoking cigarettes, and marching. There are numerous photos of officers, one of whom is saluting while riding a bicycle, as well as groups of men training and marching along the German countryside, participating in target practice, marching in water, and running across fields. Conrad's fellow soldiers also had a company puppy which is seen in the arms of several officers, as well as in his cage.An extensive collection of photographs detailing the early days of Hitler's army and the carefree life of a German officer outside of his training.
