        The Outsider and Others

      Sauk City: Arkham House, 1939. Sauk City: Arkham House, 1939. First Edition; 1200 copies printed; a fine copy in a dust jacket with minor wear and tear and a quarter-inch of chipping along the foot of the spine. The back flap has been inscribed by the dust jacket designer, Virgil Finlay: ?This jacket is a photographic composite of early Weird Tales drawings, probably only one or two were for H.P.L. stories - I wish I might have found time for more of his work which I did admire. Virgil Finlay.? [With] Another copy. First Edition. Near fine. Inscribed at Christmas, 1939 by co-publisher Donald Wandrei. In the apparently unique green proof jacket (very minor wear and soiling); printed without text. Included with these copies are several remarkable and important letters and ephemeral pieces. In a 1937 letter, Howard Wandrei (brother of Donald) writes Virgil Finlay about his own fantasy drawings, announcing that he is to do the artwork for the collected edition of Lovecraft (what became The Outsider and Others). In a one page typed letter, signed, to Finlay, dated 5 October [1939], Derleth writes, ?Don tells me you are at work on a cover for The Ousider and Others. I am delighted to know it, and I am sure that you will pay adequate tribute to HPL in your work on the jacket of his first major book...Don and I stand to divide the loss of circa $1500...I am anxious to see the jacket design when it is finished...? In a one page, typed letter, signed, and dated Nov. 14, 1939, co-publisher Donald Wandrei writes Virgil Finlay regarding the above proof dust jacket and the decision to issue the final one in blue, ?...The green was a particularly detestable and odious color...? He discusses at some length why black was eliminated as well. A carbon of a letter from the manufacturer to Derleth discusses these problems as well as some difficulties with the binding. In addition, there is a typed letter from Derleth to Mrs. Eddy about the book and her husband?s Weird Tales contributions. There are two announcements from Derleth and Wandrei for the book; a duplicated one is clearly a preliminary effort and does not mention the future publisher, Arkham House, and begs for subscribers; a one page type-set announcement is a more professional presentation and refers to Arkham House.

        4 eigenh. Briefe mit U.

      Böhmisch Kamnitz und Dresden, 29. VI. - 18. XII. 1939, einer ohne Ort und Datum [wohl 1941].. Zusammen (2+2+2+2=) 8 SS. auf 4 Bll. Gr.-4to. Mit einem eh. adr. Kuvert und einer Beilage (s. u.).. Alle an Dieter Keller, damals wohl im Stuttgarter Spemann-Verlag tätig. - Inhaltsreiche Briefe über die private Situation Hegenbarths (1884-1962) in den ersten Kriegsjahren, sein Ischias-Leiden, das ihn in seinem Schaen sehr einschränkte ("Aber wie geht es anderen, jüngeren Kollegen? Sie sind eingezogen und kommen überhaupt nicht zur Ausübung Ihrer berufl. Tätigkeit") und ein Illustrationsprojekt: " Turul macht mir sehr viel Freude und ich hoffe Ihnen das gesamte Material in zirka 20 Tagen zugehen lassen zu können". - Ende 1939 dankt er dafür, "dass ich mir je einen Abzug von den Turul-Illustrationen behalten darf". - Bietet Keller an, ihm einige Bilder zu übersenden, von denen er sich eines aussuchen und dafür als Dankeszeichen nur einen Freundschaftspreis zu zahlen brauche: "Erstaunt bin ich immer wieder, wie Sie bisher meine Arbeiten verfolgen und finde Ihr Interesse daran sehr lieb [...] Sie haben mich durch Ihre neuerliche Empfehlung beim Verlag abermals verbunden". - Die Erwähnung der Illustrationen zu Josef Bieniasz' Bärengeschichte "Turul" korrigiert die Entstehung der Arbeiten um ein Jahrzehnt. Wie viele der Illustrationsfolgen aus der Kriegszeit fand sich auch für dieses Buch erst nach Kriegsende ein Verleger, das Buch erschien 1952 im Stuttgarter Franckh Verlag, in dem Dieter Keller tätig war. - Beilagen: Ein Neujahrskarte. Klischeedruck nach Tuschzeichnung. Rückseitig mit eigenhändigem Gruß. - Gut erhalten. - Vgl. Löffer D 30.

        Abraham Lincoln: The War Years (Signed Inscribed Limited Edition)

      New York: Harcourt Brace, 1939. Limited Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. Fine/Slipcased. From a recent auction of the John Rau collection--an attractive and fine 4 Vol. set of Sandburg's definitive work on Abraham Lincoln. This is an unnumbered personally inscribed set to "Caroline Rieser Rau 1939 Carl Sandburg" on the half-title page for Vol. 1. Carline Rieser Rau was a Chicago socialite and collector who would later go on to marry David Wallerstein--who served on the Board of Directors of McDonalds, ABC, and Disney. Wallerstein was great friends with Ray Kroc and Walt Disney. Wallerstein was famous for two things--first of all for coming up with the idea of "Supersize" for McDonalds--and for presenting Walt Disney (via Caroline Riesor who was enthralled with the book) a copy of Mary Poppins--which Disney turned into a movie by the same name. This 4 Volume set comes from the collection of John Rau--who was David Wallerstein's stepson. Superb unread condition in blue cloth and gilt lettering to the spines. Yellow top stain to all 4 vols as new. The cloth spines are a tad bit age darkened. The slipcase is near fine with a bit of soiling and edgewear to the top cover only--which is missing one fold down edge. The top cover has a silver paper label with title and description in black lettering. Four volumes with 414 halftones from phtographs and 249 reproductions of cartoons, letters, and documents. A very collectible set once owned by one of Chicago's elite families. Wallerstein also was President of the Balaban and Katz movie theater chain headquartered in Chicago--where he first came to know Disney--through their arrangment of showing Disney productions to the public.

      New York: The Viking Press, 1939.. New York: The Viking Press, 1939. First issue, with "First Published in April 1939" on copyright page and first edition notice on front flap of dust jacket. Octavo, original beige cloth. Inscribed by the author, "For Jules and Joyce and also Joan with love John Steinbeck." Below his signature Steinbeck added his "Pigasus" drawing. The recipient, Jules Buck was a movie producer; he and Steinbeck made an early attempt toward a collaborative screenplay for what would become Elia Kazan's "Viva Zapata," though Steinbeck's contribution was such that he received sole credit. Buck produced such post-war film classics as Robert Siodmak's The Killers (based on the story by Ernest Hemingway), and Jules Dassin's The Naked City. His wife Joyce Gates was an actress and their daughter Joan became the editor of French Vogue. Steinbeck reserved his flying pig doodle for close friends and associates. Fine in a fine dust jacket with a tiny closed tear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional copy. "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).

        Grosser Panther

      Karlsruhe Staatliche Majolika Manufaktur Karlsruhe 1939-1962, 2000. Entwurf Else Bach 1939; signiert am Sockel "E. Bach"; am Boden gemarkt Karlsruhe Nr. 5127; Lit.: Bachmayer/Schmitt, Karlsruher Majolika 1901 bis 2001, S. 129 f. Maße: Höhe 24 cm, Länge 54 cm Majolika Zustand: siehe Bild; nur geringe altersbedingte Alters-/Gebrauchsspuren; insgesamt alters-/gebrauchsgemäss gut erhalten. Else Bach (geb. 7. September 1899 in Heidelberg, gest. 25. April 1951 in Pforzheim) war eine deutsche Bildhauerin. Sie kam als junges Mädchen nach Pforzheim, wo sie 1935-1938 an der Kunstgewerbeschule ihre erste künstlerische Ausbildung erfuhr. Sie begann als Malerin, aber während der Ausbildung wurde ihr Interesse für plastisches Gestalten geweckt. Ihr wichtigster Lehrer wurde der Pforzheimer Bildhauer Emil Salm, bei den sie eine solide handwerkliche Ausbildung in verschiedenen Techniken der Bildhauerei erhielt. Else Bach unternahm viele Studienreisen im In- und Ausland. Auf der Weltausstellung in Paris 1938 erhielt eine später auch in Terrakotta ausgeführte Fohlengruppe aus Bronze den Grand Prix. Tierdarstellungen machen einen Großteil ihres Werkes aus. Das Reh "Bambi" dürfte ihre bekannteste Skulptur sein, ein Ergebnis ihrer intensiven Zusammenarbeit mit der Staatlichen Majolika-Manufaktur in Karlsruhe, für die sie neben Gartenkeramiken vor allem fast 50 charakteristische Tierplastiken, gelegentlich als aufwendige "Ehrengeschenke" mit Aktfiguren kombiniert, entwarf. Später machten dann Aktfiguren, Figurengruppen und Portraitbüsten einen größeren Anteil ihrer Arbeit aus. Ein Jahr nach ihrem Tod ehrte 1952 der Kunst und Kunstgewerbeverein Pforzheim Else Bach mit einer Ausstellung ihres künstlerischen Lebenswerks im Reuchlinhaus.
