H.P.
Flanders Pond, Ellsworth, Maine / Manhattan, New York, 1940. Oblong quarto. Measuring 12 "x 7". String tied with gray paper covers. Contains 319 black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 4" x 3" and 3.5" x 2.5", with captions. Some small tears and age-toning on the paper covers, near fine with fine photographs. A young girl's photo album from the mid-1920s through the early 1940s of her camping trips with her family and at a girl's summer camp in Maine with later pictures of her as an adult. The album is well-captioned with the names and location on most of the photographs. The young girl is labeled only with her initials, H.P., and can be seen spending time with her family and cousins playing tennis, strumming a ukulele, posing for photos, and canoeing. A large portion of the album includes photographs of the girl and her friends at a girl's summer camp. Here the girls go swimming, sit around campfires, and sleeping in tents. One of the girl's friends, Bubby, is pictured frequently throughout the album sometimes taking pictures of herself with the camera posing with H.P. in fashionable clothing, costumes, or in their camp uniforms. There are a couple of pictures of automobiles in the album, mostly to show the vehicle the girls used to get from place to place during their summers together, with Bubby looking sullen after losing the key to her car. Some of the photographs are affectionately captioned, "Girl Gang," or "The Gang" with shots of the girls visiting Manhattan taking pictures of the city landscape. The latter part of the photo album features H.P. … [Click Below for Full Description]

holland, Loren Robert and Beverly
[No place], 1940. Oblong folio measuring 14 "x 11". Black boards with gilt decorations. Contains 57 gelatin silver black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 2" x 1" and 5" x 4" with captions and some negatives. Edgewear, a small indent on the front board, and bumped corners, thus very good album with near fine photographs. A young couple's photo album featuring photographs of their wedding and life together. Beverly Keister and Loren Robert Holland were married in the 1940s during a Twelfth Night Ceremony, which is celebrated on the 5th of January 12 days after Christmas. Pictures of the event are in the first part of the album showing Keister receiving gifts and spending times with friend and family. Holland flew jets for the United States Air Force in World War II and many photographs show the air crafts as well as pictures of the landscape from within the cockpit. One picture shows the full interior of the jet that Holland was piloting as well as shots of other planes flying next to Holland's. There are also pictures of Holland while he was at the aviation base playing on both the boxing and basketball team. A few of the photographs show young children, presumably the couple's children greeting Holland, who is wearing a Groucho Marks mask. Another funny photo shows Holland holding and caring for his peculiar pets, a raccoon and a monkey. An interesting photo album of a young couple marrying before the husband went off to fight in World War II. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

CHANDLER, Raymond
Alfred A. Knopf, 1940. Very Good. Softcover. Advance Reading Copy in illustrated self-wrappers as issued. Spine-cocked, rubbing and edgewear, an attractive, very good copy of this fragile pre-publication state. Housed in a custom quarter red morocco and cloth clamshell case. In recent years the few copies that have been on the market have usually been subject to extensive repair. While this copy exhibits some wear, it is totally unacquainted with the paper conservator's art. A scarce issue of what some consider the zenith of the modern hardboiled detective novel.

Döblin, Alfred (Schriftsteller; 1878-1957):
Hollywood, Dezember, 1940. circa 10,8 x 13,9 cm. 1 Blatt beidseitig beschrieben "Kurzer Brief des Schriftstellers Alfred Döblin (1878-1957) an einen unbekannten Adressaten. Er berichtet hier von einer Anfrage des amerikanischen Literaturagenten Harold Ober (1881-1959) und erzählt, dass er gerade an "Robinson in Frankreich" schreibt. In diesem autobiographischen Werk, das 1949 unter dem Titel "Schicksalsreise" erschien, schildert Döblin seine Flucht aus Paris ins amerikanische Exil und seine Rückkehr nach Deutschland. - Hier handelt es sich vermutlich um ein separates Blatt zu einem anderen Brief. Der Text gebinnt ohne Anrede mit "PS", darüber ist in Bleistift alt vermerkt "Hollywood Dez. 1940", rechts davon stand nicht ganz richtig "Anfang fehlt", es ist jedoch von diesem Blatt nichts abgeschnitten, da auf der Rückseite nichts fehlt. Vielmehr handelt es sich offenbar um eine zusätzliche Nachschrift zu einem anderen Blatt. Der Text ist jedoch in sich abgeschlossen und endet mit einer Signatur. " "- Gut erhalten.

Adalberto Navarro Sánchez y María Luis Hidalgo (Dir)
Guadalajara México. Folio.#1 October,1 1940 - #2 November,1 1940. Wrappers. Prisma was a magazine edited by Adalberto Navarro Sánchez and María Luis Hidalgo. He devoted himself mainly to the story, essay and poetry. The first issue appeared on January 25, 1940. Two more numbers came out in February and April. It was suspended for a few months. On October 1 it resurfaced under the same direction, but in the form of a gazette. The directors pointed out that this more popular format responded better to their dissemination purposes of culture. In total, six issues were published, the last number appeared in March 1941. The magazine had the "Asterisks" section and a section dedicated to the review of books. The latter dealt with local and national journals and books almost simultaneously with the publication of each issue of the magazine. In "Asterisks" activities related to the literary field were commented: conferences, courses, book presentations. Both sections were fundamental for the Jalisco population interested in the letters, since they commented on immediate activities.

Some wear and creasing as shown in the photos. Gardner authored the Perry Mason series books, but readers prefer the Bertha Cool and Donald Lam books over those. This Gardner is still the best selling author in the world, perhaps Stephen King or Cartwright are before him. He was at the top when I researched this years ago.

Not price-clipped. This advance copy is merely the dust jacket folded over as would be a paperbound book be and sent out to reviewers for future sales. I am sure not many of these survived for several reasons: one being the World War and two, no one knew that Gardner was A. A. Fair and three, the fragility of the book. This is book that is not common at all, this copy is the only one I have encountered. This was to be part of the Erle Stanley Gardner Museum herein Ventura, California, where Gardner wrote the three first Perry Mason books and many of his pulp stories before that.

Springville, Utah: 1940. Some age toning, top corners are creased, light creases elsewhere. In good condition overall. Hello and thank you for viewing our listing. We appreciate your time. For your consideration, we are offering an original, handwritten address written by Claude G. Salisbury that was read during the dedication ceremony for the "First Mills In Utah County" monument in present-day Springville, Utah (Utah County). The monument was dedicated on September 18, 1940. The monument's creation was organized by the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers (DUP) organization and commemorates early Mormon settlers who built mills in the area that benefited other Mormon settlers. These included a flour mill built in 1851 by Jacob Houtz, James Porter, Edward Hall and Norton Jacobs; a wool mill built in 1860 by Jacob Houtz and William Bringhurst; a cotton mill built in 1863 by William Jackson Stewart. The entire handwritten text reads as follows: --------------------------------------------------------------- The Dedicating Prayer of Marker of Mills, by Pres. Claude G. Salisbury Our Father in heaven, with gratitude in our hearts, and in humility, we are gathered here this day in honor of thy children who in the spirit and with the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, made their homes in these valleys amidst hardships that to those of lesser faith would seem unsurmountable. We give unto thee our thanks for thy countless blessings, for the courage, the character, the industry, and the testimony that characterized the lives of our pioneers.

Rubbing to boards. Some light wear at spine ends. Interior bright and sharp. In original brown card mailer, worn at edges with moderate damp-staining (not effecting book) at one end. 50pp. Very good overall. Very good. Lavish promotional book of full-bleed and -color lithographed illustrations advertising upcoming programs for Columbia Pictures' 1940-1941 season. Likely distributed to theater owners and clearly produced well in advance of actual production, the book contains a disclaimer stating that properties may not be produced precisely as advertised. And indeed, most of the films advertised did not make it into theaters, or did so with different stars or under different titles. Of the films included, 11 appear to be completely unrealized, with most of the remaining either produced under different titles, with different principals, or both. Most of the pictures rely heavily on Columbia's roster of contract players: Cary Grant, Loretta Young, Melvyn Douglas, Jean Arthur, etc. Star directors like Charles Vidor also feature prominently. While many of the pictures seem well on their way to production - with directors, writers and stars attached - some seem to be little more than ideas, such as "Canal Zone" or "I Joined the Bund," with generic titles evoking timely topics. In addition, a handful of CBS radio plays are advertised as well, including Ellery Queen and Blondie. An uncommon look … [Click Below for Full Description]

OUR COLLECTION OF WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS WAS PURCHASED FROM THE HOME IN VENTNOR THE CITY NEXT TO OUR GREAT ATLANTIC CITY. Roland De Hellebranth A Doctor who performed surgeries at home and sisters Bertha de Hellebranth and Elena were born into a cultured upper-class family in Budapest, Bertha in 1899, Elena in 1897. Their father was a lawyer and their mother a student of Franz Liszt's last living pupil. They studied at the Academy of Fine Art in Budapest, at the Académie Julian and the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris, and painted portraits of European nobility. As Patricia Fazekas points out, Growing up in a family of privilege, they seemed to have unusual access to many illustrious people. So we should not be surprised to find among their subjects members of high society, such as Count Andrássy Gyula, the Russian-born Princess Baby Galitzine, and Admiral Horthy Miklós, the Regent. Later on, their subjects included American heiress Gladys Vanderbilt (Countess László Széchenyi), President Theodore Roosevelt's granddaughter Paulina Longworth and former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Often, the sisters would paint the same subject at the same time, offering the sitte … [Click Below for Full Description]

Blake, William.
1940. [London: Sessler printing, c.1940's]. Impression measures 93.9 x 30 cm., an excellent impression, in deep, rich black ink on wove paper, watermarked FRANCE, lower right, watermark partially trimmed; recently cleaned. § Final state, lacking the drypoint inscriptions added in the fourth state. it is worth noting that the only difference between the so-called fourth and fifth states is the absence of the scratched dry-point inscriptions clearly visible in a few prints, and less and less visible until completely absent by the time Sessler was printing the plate. Instead of "states" the more accurate definitions might be very early to very late 4th state, and in that scheme then this print would be well after the early impressions with some or most of the scratched inscriptions visible, but before the Sessler printings of the 1940s, none of which were on laid India. "'Chaucers Canterbury Pilgrims' was one of Blake's major attempts at building a reputation as a painter-engraver and achieving the sort of critical and financial success that had escaped him for so many years...." However, Blake wasn't to meet with the critical success he had hoped for and the competition created when Thomas Stothard executed a plate of the same subject, caused him to become bitter. "Most contemporary connoisseurs probably found the print old-fashioned and 'Gothic' in the pejorative sense.... The record of prices brought by the print at auction indicates that it has attracted strong interest from collectors only in the last few years" (Essick, pp. 86-88). "It is only in the last two states of t … [Click Below for Full Description]

We have included a number of photos above in order that you can judge the overall condition. Rare Large Original WINSTON CHURCHILL Copper Printers Plate Rare large original copper printing plate bearing the image of Winston Churchill. This plate dates from the 1940's or 50's and believe would have been used for printing Churchill's image on the back of dust jackets or magazine articles. A smaller version of this image is used in the pamphlet "The State of the Nation" by Winston Churchill. The plate is mounted onto a mahogany block of wood of 2.1cms thickness, and has black ink stains as you would expect from a printers plate. On the reverse of the plate there is a fragment of the actual image that would be produced by the plate and paper from an old magazine. Plates of this type and size are quite rare to find as most would have been destroyed after the print run.

Fred Schwed, Jr.
Simon Schuster New York, 1940. Humorous and entertaining, this book exposes the folly and hypocrisy of Wall Street. The title refers to a story about a visitor to New York who admired the yachts of the bankers and brokers. Naively, he asked where all the customers' yachts were? Of course, none of the customers could afford yachts, even though they dutifully followed the advice of their bankers and brokers. Full of wise contrarian advice and offering a true look at the world of investing, in which brokers get rich while their customers go broke, this book continues to open the eyes of investors to the reality of Wall Street.
