        Our Town

      New York: Coward McCann, 1938. The actor Tom Fadden's copy, inscribed to him by Thornton Wilder, signed by the entire cast, annotated by him for performance, and with an autograph postcard from Wilder laid in. 8vo. Original cloth; original pictorial dust jacket (some fraying and short tears at edges); cloth folding case. Tom Fadden's copy, with his ownership name and address on the verso of the half-title. Presentation copy, inscribed by Wilder to Fadden on the half-title: "For Tom: with the gratitude of Thornton Wilder / N.Y. May 1938." Additionally inscribed by star Frank Craven, and signed by the cast. Further enhancing this exemplary copy are penciled notes by Fadden on 39 pages of the text in which he remarks on performance subtleties or provides himself with visual cues. Tom Fadden originated the role of Howie Newsome, the young milkman and fixture of Grover's Corners. 'Our Town' was first performed at McCarter Theater in Princeton, New Jersey on January 22, 1938. It moved to the Wilbur Theatre in Boston, Massachusetts on January 25, 1938 and made its New York City debut on February 4, 1938 at Henry Miller's Theatre. It won the 1938 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The present copy was inscribed to Fadden after the first performances of the play, and thus connects its early life on the stage via Fadden's performance notes to the moment of its great critical reception in New York. Laid-in is an autograph postcard from Wilder to Fadden, 12 July [1942], saying that he mentioned Fadden to Alfred Hitchcock but that it seemed the director had already filled his vacant role. He writes "I hope that you and I can work together on something again when the war's over." Also laid in are a promotional photo and a Playbill for the run at the Morosco Theatre. Tom Fadden (1895-1980) had a long career, performing on stage, vaudeville, film and television. Among his numerous roles, he is perhaps best remembered as the Tollhouse Keeper on the bridge in 'It's a Wonderful Life' for his reaction to the angel Clarence's explanation of who he is to George Bailey.

        Listen! The Wind

      Chatto & Windus 1938 - Anne Morrow Lindbergh and Charles Lindbergh (1938) ‘Listen! The Wind‘, UK first edition, first printing, published by Chatto & Windus. Signed and inscribed by Anne Morrow and Charles Lindberg on the title page “For Mr and Mrs Hook from Anne Morrow Lindbergh and Charles Lindbergh, [place?] 1938”. Condition: the book is in very good + condition. The book is internally clean with no other inscriptions and no foxing to endpapers or the other pages whatsoever. Boards are clean with a little shelf wear. A few ageing spots to the top page block edges. The dust jacket is good with some loss to the edges and is price clipped. This is the much scarcer UK first edition which is exceptionally scarce signed (far more common is the US first edition). The book comes with a brief note of provenance from the previous owner. As is correctly stated, the Lindbergh couple, following the kidnapping of their young son (‘the crime of the century’) relocated to the UK for a few years to escape the media onslaught back in their home. During their stay in Britain there was opportunity to sign a few UK copies such is in this example. This book tells the story how the couple crosses the Atlantic by plane from Africa to South America in 1933. Anne Morrow wrote the book and Charles wrote the foreword and provided the maps. The book won the National Book Award for Nonfiction in The US and was a bestseller back in those days. Charles Lindbergh was the first man to cross the Atlantic by plane from New York to Paris in 1927. The flight took him 33 1/2 hours in the ‘Spirit of St Louis’. A unique piece of history signed by pioneers and heroes of human achievement! [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Vollständige Ausgabe in 2 Original-Verlags-Handeinbänden der Zeit: feingenarbtes Ganzleder / GLdr / Leder im Format 16 x 21,5 cm mit Rückentitel und Deckel-Liniendekoration in Goldprägung sowie Kopfgoldschnitt, beide Bände mit jeweils ganzseitiger Frontispiz-Fotoabbildung \"Der Schirmherr des Hauses der Deutschen Kunst Adolf Hitler.\" Band 1 mit 143 (Text) + 72 (Abbildungen) Seiten, Band 2 mit 168 (Text) + 64 (Abbildungen) Seiten, die Fotoabbildungen jeweils auf Kunstdruckpapier, mit Verzeichnissen der ausgestellten Werke (Architektur, kunsthandwerkliche Gegenstände) und der Aussteller von kunsthandwerklichen Gegenständen (Adler / Berchtesgaden - Zwengauer Marie / München). - \"Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen einen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen.

        Coasting to Cape Smoky A Summer Cruise in 1937 from Padanaram to Nova Scotia and Cape Breton in the Ketch "Sirius"

      Boston: Planograph Printing by Spaulding-Moss Company, 1938. Illustrated with maps, photographic illustrations etc. 116pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Silver cloth spine and blue cloth, a little faded toward the fore-edge, text clean and bright. Near fine. Illustrated with maps, photographic illustrations etc. 116pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Rare and possibly unrecorded. It's not known how many copies of this book were printed but it can't have been more than a handful. Alas the attention paid to the quality of the illustrations was not directed towards the font, which is simply reproduced typescript. The relaxed nature of Meyer's cruise in the summer of 1937 is reflected in the text. The skipper was perfectly happy to resort to power whenever he met with a still day, and many were beset by fog. However, he remains cheerful throughout and provides much information and any local color he met with at the stops en route which included Christmas Cove, Lunenburg, Halifax, St. Peters and Baddeck. The narrative pauses for a chapter "Wherein the Author Becomes Historical" Not in Toy; not in Morris & Howland; no copies on OCLC; not in KVK
