        Cutting continuity script for CITIZEN KANE

      N.p.: RKO Pictures, 1940. Mimeograph, 71 leaves, rectos only. Folio. Blue paper wrappers, stapled at top margin, final leaf and rear cover detached, front cover loose, some edgewear, front cover numbered in pencil, "257". Mimeograph, 71 leaves, rectos only. Folio. Citizen Kane Cutting Continuity Script. An early cutting continuity script of Citizen Kane, predating the final cutting continuity script of February 21, 1941 (reproduced in Kael, The Citizen Kane Book, 1971) but post-dating the film's cut down from 122 minutes to 119 mintues. This version differs in numerous small ways from the published one. The most significant discrepancy occurs in scene 17 - the glass snowglobe in the dying Kane's hand contains a "snow-covered house with snowmen surrounding it" in the published version, but in this version contains a "snow-covered sled" - an early reference to Kane's obsession. A scarce artifact from the production of a film that is overwhelmingly regarded as the greatest ever made. Provenance: probably Robert Asher (1915-1979), British film director, his handwritten time-sheet of a day at Elstree Studios dated "Thursday Oct 5/44" on the verso of the last leaf, in a custom half-morocco clamshell case

De tweede druk, bij Jan ten Hoorn, verscheen in 1691. Deze derde druk is de enige die in de STCN wordt genoemd (één exemplaar: K.B.).$Behalve het vals spelen met kaarten, dat vooral in herbergen plaats vindt, behandelt de onbekende auteur (hij tekent het 'Aan den leezer' met N.N.) ook het recent aangevangen spel met drie 'ronde zilvere holle bolletjes of dopjes, hebbende de gedaante als een half doorgebrokene okkernoot' waar met een of twee ronde bolletjes van kurk mee gespeelt wordt. De derde variant van vals spelen geschiedt met een leren riem die rond wordt opgewonden en waarin een ijzeren priempje wordt gestoken. De omstanders moeten dan gokken of dit priempje bij loswinden van de riem los is of vast aan de riem zit. De laatste twee methoden komen vooral in trekschuiten voor. Het boek is oorspronkelijk Nederlands en bevat kostelijke verhalen hoe reizigers in Hollandse steden en onderweg bedrogen worden. Enkele verhalen zijn gedateerd (1673,1676). Aan het slot een aantal een aantal praktische 'lessen hoe men zich voor het valsch speelen zal konnen wachten'."

        [Manuscrits autographes inédits] "L'heure de choisir : civilisation humaniste ou coenolâtrie humanitaire ?" (1940) et trois textes sur "humanisme et humanitarisme"

      1940. Manuscrit. Bon. En Feuilles. In-4. A) "L'heure de choisir" : 15 pp. in-4, manuscrit signé, situé (Marlotte) et daté (4 janvier 1940) ; B) "Sur l'humanisme", 4 pp. 1/3 in-4 ; C) "Soyons humanistes", 2 1/2 pp. in-4 ; D) texte sans titre de 12 pp. in-4. Alors que la guerre fait rage et qu'il sent sa fin proche, le psychanalyste expose sa doctrine politique, très nettement maurrassienne : "Au moment où, avec les armées, les flottes et les escadrilles, se heurtent les idées et plus encore les conceptions morales, il n'est pas inutile d'essayer de déceler nettement, sous les nuances variées et les aspects multiformes que lui imposent les circonstances particulières, l'antagonisme foncier qui déchire l'humanité." L'opposition est selon lui entre d'une part "l'humanisme" (centré sur la personne) et "l'humanitarisme" (centré sur l'individu) d'autre part. "Les humanistes visent au bien de l'homme, les humanitaires à celui de l'humanité. La doctrine de l'Eglise, celle de Renan, celle de Barrès, celle de M. Maritain, celle de M. Maurras, celle de M. Bergson, celle aussi des anarchistes libertaires sont des doctrines humanistes ; M. Bernanos lui-même est, dans le sens où nous prenons ce terme qu'il renie, un humaniste. Au contraire la déclaration des Droits de l'Homme, le radicalisme à la Ferdinand Buisson, l'anti-capitalisme de Charles Marx, le national-socialisme de M. Adolphe Hitler sont des doctrines de l'ordre humanitaire." Les trois autres manuscrits sont des ébauches de ce long article. Le texte "Sur l'humanisme" est d'orientation plus monarchiste encore, et s'oppose violemment au "scientisme". Dans le plus long des textes, resté sans titre, Pichon parle plus en sa qualité de psychanalyste et expose ses idées (très conservatrices) sur l'éducation : "Nous psychanalystes et psychopédiatres savons maintenant de façon pertinente comment se développent les névroses et les états de révolte sociale". Il s'y oppose au "fameux bobard que le génie soit une névrose" et s'intéresse au cas de Baudelaire tel qu'analysé par Laforgue. Il évoque ensuite le "sentimental gauchard" qui "pleure presque s'il apprend qu'il y a 250 victimes dans un accident au fond de l'Oklahoma. C'est qu'il est bon, lui, nom de Dieu ! Mais nous, qu'il vient consulter pour sa psychasténie, pour ses obsessions, ou pour sa sexualité ratée, nous connaissons le revers de la médaille : nous savons qu'il n'aime si vastement, si compréhensivement que parce qu'il n'a pas un amour qui sache étreindre. Son soi-disant amour ne s'adresse pas au prochain, selon le précepte du Maître, mais à du lointain, à de l'abstrait, même si cet abstrait a figure présente." Personnage d'une grande richesse, d'une infinie curiosité et très complexe, Edouard Pichon est un contemporain et - par son intérêt pour le langage - un précurseur de Lacan, qui lui reprendra - entre autres - le concept de forclusion. Il est l'un des membres fondateurs du groupe de L'Evolution psychiatrique et de la Société Psychanalytique de Paris (dont il fut président de 1935 à 1937). Avec son oncle Jacques Damourette, il est l'auteur d'un monumental Essai de Grammaire française dont la publication s'étala sur près de 30 ans. Il fut également fervent maurrassien tout en étant dreyfusard, et le gendre de Pierre Janet sans être janetien. (Voir à son sujet, E. Roudinesco, Histoire de la psychanalyse en France, t. 1, pp. 297-320). Nota : ce document ne pourra être exporté en dehors de l'Union Européenne sans autorisation préalable du ministère de la Culture, formalité pouvant prendre plusieurs jours..

        Schadenstellen im LS-Ort. Oberhausen/Rhld. mit Müllheim a.d. Ruhr

      Oberhausen: , 1940-44. [Bomb-damage Sites in the Air Defence Area Oberhausen-Rheinland and Mülheim an der Ruhr] Landscape quarto (228 × 285 mm) contemporary cream cloth double-post binder album, cream textured endpapers. Calligraphic title page, illustrated with a silhouetted skyline with two bright white searchlight beams; 166 mounted original photographs, various formats, many c.83 × 113 mm and vice versa, 55 of them c.127 × 170 mm, all captioned in a neat calligraphic hand in great detail as to location, type of bomb and extent of damage; three pen and ink diagrams with blue and red pencil crayon shading on calque paper, with elevations of buildings showing the extent of bomb damage. Just a little rubbed, a few images coming loose, and 10 neatly removed, overall very good. Remarkable album of photographs documenting the damage caused by Allied bombing on the Ruhr. Evidently officially compiled by the regional Luftschutzamt - Air Defence Organisation - the collection offers a highly-detailed visual record of the effects of the raids, each image also being accompanied by meticulous analysis, noting dates, precise location, type of ordnance, impact and effects, for example; "Raid of 10 August 1941 from 3 a.m. Köperstraße Oberhausen-Sterkrade, 850kg mine-bomb. Garden area behind the houses, 3 houses completely destroyed, 8 houses badly damaged, 29 houses substantially damage, and more than 100 houses with windows or roofs damaged. No fatalities, 22 wounded, of which the majority were in the shelter. Crater photographed from above. Particularly noteworthy is the perimeter of the crater"; and "Raid of 24 April 1943 - Incendiary. Mixture of phosphorus and magnesium-aluminium alloy incendiaries - Herz-Jesu-Kirche and surroundings. The vault was hit and the tower burnt out. View from the tower". The Ruhrchemie AG synthetic oil plant had made the area a key target during the bombing campaign against the Axis oil industries. The loosely inserted sketches expand on the verbal descriptions accompanying the photographs, offering diagrams detailing particular bomb strikes. The three incidents referred to are at the railway station at Mülheim, of which there are two photographic images; a strike on a bunker in the washrooms of Ruhrchemie, three images; and to a bunker on the premises of Die Gutehoffnungshütte foundry, five images. The album was looted during the invasion of Germany in 1945, an inscription on the front free endpaper reads:"The Ruhr 1945. Received this book during our occupation of Germany. They have had it, eh?".

        The War Speeches of the Right Hon Winston Churchill: full set of all three First, Second, and Third Series wartime speech pamphlets

      Bombay: H. W. Smith at The Times of India Press, 1940. First edition, only printing. Pamphlets. Here is a rare three-pamphlet series of Winston Churchill wartime speech publications. Each is quite scarce individually and we know of no other available sets of all three in the series. Most collectors know about the popular wartime Churchill speech pamphlets, such the HMSO pamphlet bearing "The Few" speech of August 20th, 1940. These are readily available and reasonably common, even if expensive. However, many other wartime Churchill speech pamphlets were produced, some of which are far more scarce, bibliographically notable, and hardly ever seen. This set is an example. During the early years of the Second World War the Times of India produced a series of three pamphlets. Each is a collection of Churchill speeches published in Bombay in 1940 and 1941, each measuring 7.125 x 4.75 inches and bound in wire-stitched paper wraps, with an iconic photo of Churchill on the front cover. The "First Series" features speeches spanning May 14th to July 14th 1940. The "Second Series" includes speeches spanning August 20th to November 21st 1940. The "Third Series" and final pamphlet features speeches spanning February 9th to August 24th, 1941. In addition to being rare, all three pamphlets are bibliographically significant. The "First Series" pamphlet is the first volume appearance of Churchill's House of Commons speech of 25 June 1940 regarding the fall of France. The "Second Series" pamphlet is the first volume appearance of the speeches of 5, 11, and 19 September, 8 October, and 9, 13, and 21 November 1940. These speeches from the first two pamphlets were subsequently collected in Into Battle. The "Third Series" pamphlet is the first volume appearance of the speeches of 9 April, 16 June, and 9, 14, and 15 July 1941. These speeches were subsequently collected in The Unrelenting Struggle. On most of the few occasions we have seen any of these pamphlets offered, they have either lacked or suffered considerable damage to the pictorial wraps. Each of these three pamphlets is in near very good or better condition, particularly given the inherent fragility and wartime colonial origins. None of the illustrated front wraps shows any loss and the only previous ownership mark we find in the set is the red ink stamp of a Calcutta bookseller on the lower rear cover of the First Series pamphlet. The First Series pamphlet is intact and unrestored; the wraps are still attached with both binding staples intact. The blank rear wrap shows some soiling and spotting and a .5 x .75 inch triangular loss at the upper corner. The binding staples show some rust but remain firm. The contents remain surprisingly crisp, clean, and bright with no spotting. The Second Series pamphlet retains complete covers, with no losses or tears, but shows overall soiling and spotting, with some staining to the lower rear cover and along the spine, where it appears a discreet amount of glue may have been applied long ago to reinforce the spine. Both binding staples remain firmly intact. The contents remain quite bright, with no previous ownership marks. We note light soiling to the first and final pages and the page edges, and a faint vertical crease running the length of the booklet at the center. The Third Series pamphlet shows no losses to the covers, the binding staples remain intact, and the contents remain bright with light spotting to the page edges. We do note wear along the spine and expect that the covers have had some discreet glue reinforcement at the spine. All three pamphlets are preserved in a removable, archival clear mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A130, A135, and A154; Woods D(a)7(a), Woods D(a)7(b), and not found in Woods (Third Series).

        Clarence Day's Life with Father (First Edition, inscribed to Horace McCoy)

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1940 - First Edition. Humorously INSCRIBED to author Horace McCoy on the front endpaper by Russell Crouse: "For Horace McCoy / They shoot authors, don't they? / Russel Crouse." An interesting Hollywood association between two screenwriters whose work outside cinema (McCoy a novelist and Crouse a playwright) was even more significant than their work for the silver screen. Though undated, the inscription here is almost certainly from the year of publication, the final year that McCoy and Crouse worked as screenwriters for Paramount."Life with Father," Lindsay and Crouse's adaptation of Clarence Day's popular "New Yorker" stories about upper class life in turn-of-the-century New York, became the longest running non-musical play on Broadway, a record it still holds today. It, in turn, was the basis for the hit 1947 film, directed by Michael Curtiz and starring an Academy award nominated William Powell, Irene Dunne, and Elizabeth Taylor.About Near Fine in a Very Good plus, price-clipped copy of the dust jacket. Faint spotting to the boards, light bump to the upper front tip. Jacket has minor nicking to the extremities, two short closed tears to the front panel, and a corresponding bump to the upper tip.

        The Wind in the Willows

      1940. first edition. Arthur Rackham?'s ?"Wind in the Willows?"[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. GRAHAME, Kenneth. The Wind in the Willows. With an Introduction by A.A. Milne & Illustrations by Arthur Rackham. New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1940.Limited to 2,020 numbered copies (this copy being No. 416), signed by the designer, Bruce Rogers. Quarto (11 3/8 x 8 1/8 inches; 289 x 207 mm.). [2], 244, [2] pp. Sixteen mounted color plates. ?"Printed at the Walpole Printing Office…The edition was designed by and printed under the supervision of Bruce Rogers?" (Colophon).Original quarter pale yellow buckram over patterned paper boards. Spine lettered in gilt. Top edge gilt, others uncut. A very fine, partially uncut copy. With the small rectangular engraved book-plate of Samuel R. & Marie-Louise Rosenthal on front paste-down. In the original publisher?'s olive green cardboard slipcase (one edge repaired). Loosely inserted is the original Limited Editions Club note regarding the publication of the book after Arthur Rackham' death."The Wind in the Willows was not published in England until 1950, but it found two publishers, one for a de luxe edition (The Limited Editions Club, New York) and one for a trade edition (The Heritage Press, New York) in the United States posthumously in the year following Rackham?'s death. The book is a gentle delight, presenting sixteen illustrations which in no way fight with the more famous imaginative world created by Shepherd, although if Shepherd had not preceded him, then Rackham might have anthropomorphized his creatures even more. Several of the plates are delightful: the ?'Golden Day when the three heroes walked by the Caravan, Mole leading a happy horse?'; the placid Rat handing a hamper to put into a boat, a plate famous among Rackham lovers because it was the boat for which Rackham forgot to draw the oars, an omission which some see as significant in view of the artist?'s imminent death. Perhaps the most interesting picture is the frontispiece, which depicts the egocentric Toad levelled to the drab clothes of a no-pocket washerwoman, hopping about permissively, totally unequipped for the real contest. In the real world of people, like all egoists, animal or human, he is alien, and it is a typical piece of Rackhamerie that we should see two children laughing at the glum toad, not because he is a toad, but because he is obviously pretending to be something else.It is with a sense of a serious loss that one turns to the imprint of the de luxe edition in search of the familiar Rackham signature, and finds not the careful hand of Rackham, but that of the designer Bruce Rogers, who saw the book and Rackham?'s pictures through the press.?" (Gettings, Arthur Rackham. Pp. 168-169).?"This was the final book Arthur Rackham illustrated before his death in 1939?" (Riall, pp. 197-198).Bruce Rogers (1870 ?- 1957) was an American typographer and type designer, acclaimed by some as among the greatest book designers of the twentieth century. Rogers was known for his "classical" style of design, rejecting modernism, never using asymmetrical arrangements, rarely using sans serif type faces, favoring stolid roman faces such as Caslon and his own Centaur.
