William Saroyan (author) and Conrado Massaguer (illustrator)
The Theatre Guild, Inc., New York, 1939. Large poster for the Broadway production of William Saroyan's play. Printed cloth with wooden dowels at each. Approximately 42" by 81". Directed by Eddie Dowling, Saroyan's play was the first drama to win both the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award. The play opened at the Booth Theater on October 25, 1939. The illustator of the poster, Conrado Massaguer was a major figure in Cubn popular art in the first half of the twentieth century; one of the founders of the Grupo Minorista. He was a regular contributor to Vanity Fair and the New Yorker. This is a lovely example of Massaguer's work and an important memorabilia of the American theater. A fragile poster, it is quite nice condition (see photo). There is some wear to the margins and a piece missing on the right edge.

n.p.: American Student Nationalists, 1939. A scarce broadside manifesto for a pre-war, isolationist, anti-Communist student group, whose slogan, "Keep America Out of War By Keeping Communism Out of America!!" belies their subtle anti-Semitism and overt anti-Zionism. At the outset the group argues, "America entered the first world war not to make 'the world safe for democracy' but to make Palestine safe for the Jews! (Ask Mr. Brandeis; --he knows!)." Further down they couch their anti-Semitism in the vernacular of the extreme right, declaring: "We American Students always stand ready to defend our country against all enemies, external and internal, first among whom are the Socialist, Communist, Anarchist international gangsters who plot to rule the world by setting every man against his brother by precipitating civil war in every country in the world, when universal financial and moral collapse inevitably follow the second world war." The group defends Japan, Germany, Italy and Spanish Nationalists as defending their regions from Bolshevism; and alternately denounces the American Student Union as "avowedly anti-fascist" and therefore Communist controlled and encourages student to join an "American" student organization "that puts the interests of American Students and America before those of all other countries and those of the Soviet Union Last, not First." This is one of the first extreme right student organizations that we've come across, pre-dating other extreme and moderate right wing groups such as the National Youth Alliance, Young Americans for Freedom or Turning Poi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hi, This lot is the rare 1939 Original Hardback. The second year of the new style hardback. This book is very good for a 1939 which always seems to have broken hinges and poor gilt. This book has amazing shiny (original) gilt to the front and to the spine , the boards are very nice too, some light marks but general very good. There is a line running down the spine cloth from top to bottom which is a bit off putting and the hinges are broken as per many but oddly they are still strong but you can see the mesh. Nice and clean pages inside , some ink dots to the page block , a nice book, a bit wonky but nice and shiny gilt which is very hard to find on a 1939. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

WILLIAM FAULKNER
1939. Covers darkened near edges, with somet paper loss at bottom & corners; spine age-faded with some fraying at top and bottom of spine; no internal damage. Published by Random House (New York 1939). First edition. Hardbound, with wood-grain-patterned paper sides and rust cloth back. In the binding of the 250-copy limited edition, this copy lacks the tipped-in signed limitation page. The covers are darkened near the edges, with some paper loss at the bottom and the corners, and the spine is age-faded with some fraying at the top and bottom of the spine; no internal damage. Good. Faulkner's moving novel of flight and refuge, later published under his original title, If I Forget Thee, Jerusalem, The Wild Palms tells two interwoven stories. "The Wild Palms" and "Old Man" alternate chapters, each telling a different, but equally captivating tale of a relationship between a man and a woman. "The Wild Palms" ends with one of literature's darkest closing lines, "Between grief and nothing, I will take grief." "For range of effect, philosophical weight, originality of style, variety of characterization, humor, and tragic intensity, [Faulkner's works] are without equal in our time and country." Robert Penn Warren "He is the greatest artist the South has produced. . . . Indeed, through his many novels and short stories, Faulkner fights out the moral problem which was repressed after the nineteenth century [yet] for all his concern with the South, Faulkner was actually seeking out the nature of man. Thus we must turn to him for that continuity of moral purpose which made for greatnes … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ruff and Strughold both held important positions in the Nazi government, Ruff serving as director of the Aviation Medicine Department at the German Experimental Institute for Aviation, and Strughold as chief of aeromedical research for the Luftwaffe. After World War II Ruff remained in Germany but Strughold came to the United States as part of Project Paperclip, holding a series of high-ranking positions with both the U.S. Air Force and NASA.

Steinbeck, John
New York: Viking Press, 1939. Steinbeck, John. THE GRAPES OF WRATH. New York: Viking Press, 1939. First Edition, first issue dust jacket with "first edition" statement at the bottom of the front flap. Wraparound jacket art by Elmer Hader, who also designed the cover art for Steinbeck's East of Eden. A FINE, bright, unmarked and virtually unworn copy, the only notable flaw being some moderate foxing to the top edge. The Near Fine priced ($2.75) dust jacket has superior eye appeal with light wear and stress along the jacket edges and at the corners. No tears, stains, or repair of any kind. Unlike most first editions, this copy does not suffer the usual darkening of the spine panel. THE GRAPES OF WRATH was not just a Pulitzer prize-winner, it remains literature's greatest chronicle of the Great Depression, and also deserves credit for earning Steinbeck his 1962 Nobel Prize. Source for the multi-Oscar winning 1940 John Ford directed film of the same name starring Henry Fonda. For the collector who wants a lovely copy but is disinclined to spend twice as much for an example which is only slightly better. A top ten cornerstone of Modern American Literature.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine/Very Good to Fine. Illus. by Elmer Hader.

SELTENE 1. Drucktrommeln in der Abenddämmerung Arna Bontemps Macmillan 1939 US H / B Haiti Colonial Der Klappentext Arna Bontemps 'Drums at Dusk, eine Geschichte über Liebe, Gewalt und Rasse, die 1791 bei Ausbruch der haitianischen Revolution spielt, taucht die Leser in die opulente und brutale - aber auch sehr fragile - Gesellschaft der reichsten Kolonie Frankreichs, Saint, ein Domingue. Dieser 1939 erstmals veröffentlichte Roman untersucht das komplexe Spannungsnetz, das wohlhabende Plantagenbesitzer, arme Weiße, freie Farbige und die Sklaven verbindet, die die Kolonie und den Globus betäubten, indem sie sich zu einem sorgfältig geplanten Aufstand zusammenschlossen. Der Held des Romans, Diron Desautels, ein in Saint Domingue geborener weißer Kreol, der zur französischen Antisklaverei-Gruppe Societe des Amis des Noirs gehört, versucht, seine Botschaft von "Freiheit, Gleichheit, Brüderlichkeit" in einer Welt voller Konflikte zu verbreiten. Bontemps 'Werk, das ein breites Spektrum haitianischer Stimmen bewohnt, darunter die von weißen indenturierten Dienern, Sklavinnen und Toussaint L'Ouverture, die später als bekanntester Held der Revolution hervorgingen, spiegelt nicht nur die Feinheiten der haitianischen Gesellschaft am Vorabend von wider die Revolution, aber auch die Vision eines schwarzen Künstlers von Haiti im 20. Jahrhundert, während der Besetzung durch die US-Marines und am Rande eines Krieges in Europa. Das Buch Dies ist ein seltener 1. Druck der 1.

Condition The book is in very good condition. The gilt lettering is bright and unrubbed. There are no signatures, bookplates, or markings of any kind in the book. The pages are clean and free of any foxing. The book comes with its original yellow slipcase in good condition. This is the limited edition #162/425 copies signed by James Joyce. Synopsis Finnegans Wake is a novel by Irish writer James Joyce which is significant for its experimental style and the resulting reputation as one of the most difficult works of fiction in the English language. Written in Paris over a period of seventeen years, and published in 1939, two years before the author's death, Finnegans Wake was Joyce's final work. The entire book is written in a largely idiosyncratic language, consisting of a mixture of standard English lexical items and neologistic multilingual puns and portmanteau words, which many critics believe attempts to recreate the experience of sleep and dreams. Owing to the work's expansive linguistic experiments, stream of consciousness writing style, literary allusions, free dream associations, and its abandonment of the conventions of plot and character construction, Finnegans Wake remains largely unread by the general public. ---------- About … [Click Below for Full Description]

Light dampstaining, very good in a very good dust jacket. Jacket design by Elmer Hader. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. "The Grapes of Wrath is the kind of art that’s poured out of a crucible in which are mingled pity and indignation Its power and importance do not lie in its political insight but in its intense humanity [It] is the American novel of the season, probably the year, possibly the decade" (Clifton Fadiman). It is the basis for the 1940 John Ford directed film, bearing the same name starring Henry Fonda. It is widely considered as one of the greatest American films of all time. In 1989, this film was one of the first 25 films to be selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." Listed by Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of the twentieth century. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]

RARE 1er tambour d'impression au crépuscule Arna Bontemps Macmillan 1939 US H / B Haiti Colonial Le Blurb Une histoire d'amour, de violence et de race qui se déroule au déclenchement de la Révolution haïtienne en 1791, l'écrivain afro-américain Arna Bontemps's Drums at Dusk plonge les lecteurs dans la société opulente et brutale - mais aussi très fragile - de la colonie la plus riche de France, Saint Domingue. Publié pour la première fois en 1939, ce roman explore le réseau complexe de tensions entre les riches propriétaires de plantations, les blancs pauvres, les personnes libres de couleur et les esclaves qui ont assommé la colonie et le monde en s'unissant dans un soulèvement soigneusement planifié. Le héros du roman, Diron Desautels, un créole blanc né à Saint Domingue qui appartient au groupe anti-esclavagiste français Société des Amis des Noirs, tente de diffuser son message de "" liberté, égalité, fraternité "" dans un monde plein de conflits. Habitant de manière imaginative un large éventail de voix haïtiennes, y compris celles des serviteurs blancs sous contrat, des femmes esclaves et de Toussaint L'Ouverture, qui a émergé plus tard comme le héros le plus connu de la révolution, l'œuvre de Bontemps reflète non seulement les subtilités de la société haïtienne à la veille de la révolution, mais aussi la vision d'un artiste noir d'Haïti au XXe siècle, pendant l'occupation des Marines américains et au bord de la guerre en Europe.

A handsomely produced survey of sites found on the west bank of the Nile from Qena to Aswan, Jebel Uweinat and the road leading from the Nile Valley to Dakhla through the Kharga Oasis; volume I related the previous season's expedition, to the Eastern desert. "The recognition of Egyptian rock art as something that could be closely linked to the archaeologically known cultures of the Nile Valley served as a strong impetus for further research. Several surveys and recording campaigns were organized in Upper Egypt and Nubia during during the last decade of the nineteenth and the first half of the twentieth century. The most celebrated accomplishment in the study of rock art is undoubtedly the work of German ethographer Hans Alexander Winkler in the Eastern and Western deserts of Egypt. Winkler's magnum opus, 'Rock-Drawings of Southern Egypt', is still one of the most important collections of rock-art material from Egypt" (UCLA Encyclopaedia of Egyptology). For the last month of the expedition, Winkler joined the team of O. H. Myers and Major R. A.
