        Disney Original Book Art of Ben Ali Gator from Fantasia

      - A fine full colour illustration of Ben Ali Gator, the lead alligator dancer in Disney's Fantasia, the Dance of the Hours. Probably drawn as preliminary art or even finished art (potentially unfinished) for a book. He is missing the red cap and feather, but from the pose our alligator is clearly the lead alligator who falls in love with Hyacinth Hippo. Image is 85mm (3.25") x 115mm (4.5"). Fantasia was distributed in 1940, so our alligator is 1940 or later. In the Dance of the Hours the clock strikes six, and alligators begin to approach the sleeping Hyacinth, surrounding her. One whispers to his companions and points at the sleeping Hyacinth. Enter Ben Ali Gator. Seeing the alligators surrounding Hyacinth, he tosses his cape aside and leaps forward, frightening them away. He then approaches Hyacinth and is instantly astounded by her beauty. He stands over her with his eyes shut and his front feet (do alligators have hands?) clasped to his chest, in our illustration's pose. hyacinth hippo awakens and is surprised by Ben Ali Gator, then enters a Pas de Deux with him, first fleeing, then running back, and leaping into a lift, which the much slimmer Ben Ali has trouble performing. He pirouettes her, eventually riding around on her extended leg and finally bowing to her. In the climax, Hyacinth teases Ben Ali, running from his advances and nearly running into several alligators as she does so. He pursues her, falling into the pool as he does so. She then runs through a line of dancing hippos. Ben Ali and his alligators pursue them also, frightening them away. The ostriches and elephants hide behind pillars as the alligators search the palace, pulling out hippos, elephants, and ostriches, with the ballet becoming rapidly more chaotic. All of the characters are shown dancing together, including Ben Ali with Hyacinth, performing lifts rapidly, finally standing over her, with her gazing adoringly at him. On a final drumbeat, the doors slam shut, collapsing in on each other, and the scene fades to black.

      Franz Hanfstaengl. From the estate of Karl Gerhard, NSDAP member and leader of Deutscher Bund Canada. Eight glossy stapled pages illustrated in black and white. 15.5 x 18cm. Text in German. Features thirty-one well-known portraits, seventeen of Hitler, nine of prominent Nazis, and five of other Nazi-related subjects. Includes dimensions, prices, and artist of each work.

        Inside the Whale and Other Essays.

      London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1940 - Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Housed in a quarter morocco green solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Publisher's file copy, with their inkstamp to the half-title, and pencilled mark to front free endpaper and front panel of the jacket. Very mild spotting to boards, an exceptionally nice copy in the nicked, little tanned and lightly rubbed dust jacket. First edition, first impression, one of 1,000 copies printed. The publisher's retained copy with their rubber stamp to the half title leaf. Orwell may well have been the finest essayist England produced in the entire century. Despite his radical credo in his essays he remains the last of the great Victorian prose stylists. Besides the title essay, this book prints his notable studies of Charles Dickens and boy's weeklies. A scarce book in any condition - copies as nice as this are rare. Provenance: from the publisher's archive of Victor Gollancz (1893–1967), one of the revolutionary figures of 20th-century publishing. Everything about Gollancz was distinctive, from his business practices – he flouted convention, backed newcomers extravagantly, and held unique sway over the Book Society choices – to the appearance of his books. The famous yellow jackets, a collaborative design between Gollancz himself and the typographer Stanley Morison, bristle with blurbs, recommendations, and reviews in black and magenta. Prior to its acquisition by Peter Harrington, the archive was shelved together from first publication, though occasionally moved from warehouse to warehouse over the decades. The copies were retained by Gollancz as "archive" or "file" copies and most are stamped in ink with rubber stamps, usually on the front panel of the dust jacket, the front free endpaper, and the title page.

        FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS

      Chas. Scribner's Sons, New York 1940 - Cloth. Spine somewhat rubbed and darkened, a bit tanned and a trifle shaken, but a sound copy. Later printing of the first edition (without the 'A'). Inscribed by Hemingway on the half- title: "To Max Showalter with all good wishes Ernest Hemingway." Accompanied by two other items: a) another copy, first printing, bearing Max Showalter's ownership signature on the free endsheet (endsheets darkened at gutters, else very good, in defective, but largely complete, dust jacket); and b) Mary Hemingway's HOW IT WAS (New York: Knopf, 1976), first edition, near fine in very good dust jacket, inscribed by Mary Hemingway to Showalter in Los Angeles in the year of publication. Showalter (a.k.a. Casey Adams) enjoyed a long career in film and television, and was a feature player at 20th Century Fox favored by Darryl Zanuck, who required Showalter's assumption of the 'Adams' stage name. Though he was associated with a long list of films and television programs from the 1940s-1980s, we find no record of his credited association with a film adaptation of Hemingway's work. He did, however, originate the role of Ward Cleaver (the Beaver's old man), which later passed to Hugh Beaumont.

        Locomotive (The First UK Printing)

      The First UK printing published by The Minerva Publishing Co. Ltd (London) in 1940. The BOOK is in Very Good+ condition. Some rubbing to the edges and corners. Some age related markings to the boards. The binding remains tight. Light toning to the text block and page edges. Previous owner's neat small bookplate to the second blank end paper. A loose Mylar archival covering protects the boards. Three beautifully illustrated classic Polish tales. In the late 1930s renowned Polish poet Julian Tuwim, was asked to write three poems for children. The publisher Przeworski connected the three poems into one book, 'Locomotive', and commissioned illustrations from celebrated Polish illustration duo Lewitt and Him. Locomotive was the beginning of a creative partnership that lasted many years. Featuring the original three poems, Locomotive, The Turnip, and The Birds Broadcast, children learn whats inside each train carriage as it chugs along, how many people, animals, and friends it takes to pull a turnip from the ground, and what happens when birds of all kinds gather for a meeting in the woods. After its original publication in 1939 in Polish, Locomotive was swiftly translated into French and English the next year, appearing at a time when it would have been a surprise and a joy to encounter bright colors and imagery. Very Scarce as the first english edition. Recently reissued by 'Thames and Hudson' publishers. Collectible. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

      Near Fine. Large oblong quarto. String-tied quarter leather and cork over boards with "Photographs" in gilt. 210 images, mostly gelatin silver, in a wide variety of sizes, mostly larger but one as small as .75" x 1" to as large as 8" x 10".

Several following shots are from Newton, North Carolina, the compiler's home town, the photos are taken from "Skipper" presumably the compiler's car. These are followed by images of many individual operators, some taken in person at meetings at Canobie Lake, New Hampshire and Rosenberg, Texas; and several others seem to have been sent to the compiler from operators from Cincinnati, Galveston, Indiana, New Zealand, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New England, California, and many other locations. A nicely composed album of a specific type of community in a very narrow time period from late 1940 to mid-Summer 1941.

        The Ghost in the Underblows; illustrated by Alvin Lustig

      Ward Ritchie Press, Los Angeles 1940 - Los Angeles: Ward Ritchie Press, 1940. Fine/VG+. Book is in fine condition, small neat bookplate on inside pastedown, otherwise free of all markings, no foxing, no bumps. Lustig's graphic work really shines on these clean pages. DJ is a strong VG or VG+ -- clean with a couple of very minor edge chips. Spine is a little darkened and there is small 1/3 inch by 1/8 inch paper abrasion that does not affect the title lettering but does nick the graphic. On the shelf this is hardly noticeable. A lovely copy, numbered 120 of 300. Very rare. Designed by Alvin Lustig (American, 1915ñ1955); lithography in orange and black ink on off-white wove paper. "Lustig was experimenting with non-representational constructions made from slugs of metal typographic material, revealing the influence of Frank Lloyd Wright, with whom he studied for three months at Taliesin East. The most interesting of these slug compositions was for Ghost in the Underblows (1940) for Ward Ritchie Press, which echoed Constructivist typecase experiments from the early twenties yet revealed a distinctly native American aesthetic."

        Out of the Night.

      Alliance Book Corporation, New York 1940 - First edition of Valtin's bestselling autobiographical narrative. Octavo, original blue cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper in the year of publication, "For Ben Mandel, who helped. Jan Valtin November 1940." Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Jacket art by George Salter. A bestseller in 1941, described as". . . full of sensational revelations and interspersed with episodes of daring, of desperate conflict, of torture, and of ruthless conspiracy . . . It is, first of all, an autobiography the like of which has seldom been." The son of a seafaring father, Richard Julius Herman Krebs, a.k.a. Jan Valtin, came of age as a bicycle messenger during a maritime rebellion. His life as an intimate insider account of the dramatic events of 1920’s and 1930s, where he rose both within the ranks of the Communist Party and on the Gestapo hit list. Known for his honesty and incredible memory, Krebs dedicated his life to the Communist Party, rising to a position as head of maritime, organizing worldwide for the Comintern, only to flee the Party and Europe to evade his own comrade’s attempts to kill him. As a professional revolutionary, agitator, spy and would-be assassin, Krebs traveled the globe from Germany to China, India to Sierra Leon, Moscow to the United States where a botched assassination attempt landed him a stint in San Quentin. From his spellbinding account of artful deception to gain release from a Nazi prison and his work as a double-agent within the Gestapo, to his vivid depiction of a Communist Party fraught with intrigue and subterfuge, Krebs gives an unflinching portrayal of the internal machinations of both parties. Writing at age 36 under the name Jan Valtin, Krebs lays bare a young life filled with idealism and devotion—disillusionment and loss—in a world full of revolutionary promise gone immeasurably wrong."An exciting, real book without a trace of unnecessary melodrama" (H.G.Wells).

        The Big Con: The Story of The Confidence Man and The Confidence Game

      Indianapolis / New York: Bobbs-Merrill, 1940. First edition. Fine in an about near fine dustwrapper, rubbed along the hinges and with a couple of tiny closed tears. This copy with the publisher's original yellow wraparound review band. Also laid into the book are three different promotional notices from the publisher, all in manual type, with biographical information about the author, and even an offer to send him questions by mail. A fascinating and exceptionally uncommon non-fiction account of con-men, and the definitive work on the subject. It was the primary reference used by David S. Ward for his original screenplay for the film The Sting. Maurer managed to effect a settlement with the studio when he showed that a single line from the book was identical to one of the stage directions. An important antecedent to one of the best films of the past few decades. The 1973 George Roy Hill-directed film featuring Paul Newman, Robert Redford, and Robert Shaw won seven Academy Awards including Best Picture, Director, and Screenplay. Scarce in jacket, exceptionally so with the review band.
