        Skylark

      New York: Random House. (1939). First. First edition. Lightly soiled, and a small faint stain to one corner, very good or better lacking the dustwrapper. Basis for the 1941 Mark Dansdrich film featuring Claudette Colbert, Ray Milland, Brian Aherne, and Binnie Barnes. Raphaelson's first novel, about the neglected wife of a busy advertising executive. Inscribed to his close friend, James M. Cain, and Cain's second wife (of four) Elina: "for James and Elena [sic] with love -- Raph. New York May, 1939." Raphaelson, as a highly successful playwright and screenwriter, was one of Cain's idols. Cain spent nearly as much time writing unsuccessful plays as he did writing successful novels. They became close friends, and Cain was introduced by Raphaelson into a Hollywood crowd that eventually resulted in his third marriage, to actress Aileen Pringle. Raphaelson's first novel, about the neglected wife of a busy advertising executive. Basis for the 1941 Mark Dansdrich film featuring Claudette Colbert, Ray Milland, Brian Aherne, and Binnie Barnes. A very nice association. .

Octavo. 77, [1]pp. Author and title written on the spine, one corner of the text block a little bumped, else very near fine. An article discussing infinite tensor products of Hilbert spaces and the algebras acting on them. Arthur S. Wightman's copy with his ownership signature ("A.S.

        Reminiscence d'Orient. Turquie Perse et Syrie

      Chez l'Auteur, 30 Rue Des Mathurins, Paris 1939 - Text in French. This is a very good copy of this portfolio in green paper-covered boards, containing 16 pages of text and notes and 30 photographic plates and 6 hand-colored watercolor plates. The text and plates generally very good, 2 plates with some foxing. The portfolio has some damp marks to the top corners, otherwise very good. This work appears to be a record of the author's collection of architectural elements and decorative art from his many excursions to the Orient. The photos appear to be of the author's own quarters at 30 Rue des Mathurins. A late work of undoubted "Orientalism", it sets out to create an atmosphere of The Thousand and One Nights. The 6 watercolor plates depict a man and a woman in Persian costume, inside the sumptuous dwelling, in romantic, but very chaste encounters. Absolutely charming work. Folio, 13" high X 10" wide. Quite rare among d'Allemagne's works. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        TEMPO - edizione italiana 1939-1943 NOVE VOLUMI RILEGATI TUTTA TELA VERDE (dal n. 1 del 1 giugno 1939 al n . 223 del 2-9 settembre 1943) TUTTO IL PUBBLICATO, Roma, Anonima Periodici italiani, 1939

      - 26 x 35, pp. 54-60 per fasc. Collezione rilegata. Direttore Alberto Mondadori, redattore capo Carlo Bernari. Il famoso periodico (nato sul modello dell'americano LIFE) ha le copertine che riproducono foto di guerra, ma all'interno ci sono, oltre a numerosi riferimenti fotografici e di articoli sulla GUERRA, tantissimi articoli e saggi di valore letterario ed artistico. Citiamo tra i vari collaboratori: ZAVATTINI (serie di raccontini in quasi tutti i numeri), Malaparte, R. Carrieri, Barilli, Emanuelli, Romano Bilenchi, Vigorelli, Saba e tanti altri. Poi BRUNO MUNARI con "Fantasia Materia prima" ed altri articoli. Assai preziosi e di rilievo i contributi di alcuni illustratori, BOCCASILE, LEPORINI, ALBERTARELLI ed altri. Questa testata meriterebbe uno studio analitico ed approfondito perchè non v? considerato solo un periodico di guerra, ma invece una grande rivista di cultura che ha attraversato un periodo assai delicato e tormentato della storia italiana e mondiale.
