        You & Me "Toi et Moi

      , 1941 1941. Full Morocco. Near Fine. A stylish twentieth century version of the illuminated manuscript, which honors the tradition while not slavishly hewing to its Medieval ornamentation. 8vo. 17.5 by 11.5 cm. Unpaginated, 64 pp. Rendered on vellum leaves. Contains 31 poems, translated from the French, by Paul Geraldy. The beautiful calligraphy is rendered primarily in black, with red used for most titles and gilt reserved for the most salient titles. Most extraordinary, though, are the many vignette illustrations and ornaments of birds, butterflies, seraphs, flowers, stars, masks and shells. These are integrated seamlessly with the text. They somehow manage to exhude a charisma without a wisp of vulgarity, and their effect is bound to be sheer intoxication.The anthology of naive, or deliberately simple, poems, "Toi et Moi" first appeared in 1912. Dedicated to Lisbet Marx, who was the original owner of the manuscript and might have commissioned it.Minor rubbing to the spine bands. Clean, bright and tight otherwise.

        RANDOM HARVEST (First Edition, Inscribed to Horace McCoy, referencing his admiration for McCoy's masterpiece: "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?")

      Boston: Little, Brown, 1941. Boston: Little, Brown, 1941. Hilton, James. RANDOM HARVEST. Boston: Little, Brown, 1941. First Edition, first printing. A NEAR FINE copy (top edge lightly foxed) in a Very Good to Near Fine dust jacket (spine panel also lightly foxed, small closed tear to rear panel, tiny bit of creasing, slight wear to the extremities). A REMARKABLE HOLLYWOOD PRESENTATION COPY: "For Horace McCoy/ with admiration for 'They Shoot Horses, Don't they?'/ James Hilton/ Jan. 1941." Hilton authored the modern Utopian masterpiece LOST HORIZON (1933) as well as the beloved novel GOODBYE MR. CHIPS (1934). RANDOM HARVEST is no less brilliant and it is often cited as James Hilton's best written novel. It was memorably filmed in 1941, starring Ronald Colman and Greer Garson as two lovers thwarted by amnesia in the aftermath of the first World War, earning 7 Oscar Nominations including Best Picture. Horace McCoy's THEY SHOOT HORSES DON'T THEY? (published in 1934) is now regarded as one of the most striking and upsetting tales of the Great Depression, a novel which follows the desperate lives of a doomed group of Hollywood failures who seek their last hope in the winning of a dance marathon and its prize money. It was belatedly filmed in 1969, winning 9 Oscar nominations. For those who enjoy math, the film adaptations of RANDOM HARVEST and THEY SHOOT HORSES, DON'T THEY? received a total of 17 Oscar nominations between them. An ideal association copy. . Inscribed By Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good.

      Clivedon, Taplow. 26 August 1941. Clivedon, Taplow. 26 August 1941.. One page, on small octavo sheet of letterhead, with one paragraph postscript, in pencil. Accompanied by four 8 x 10 sheets of cyclostyled or hectographed costume drawings, incorporating manuscript captions, by Shaw. Letter fine, the drawings share a uniform patch of damp deterioration at one edge, with some associated brittleness and tears in that area. Shaw writes to his secretary: "My dear Blanche If you are anywhere in the direction of Whitehall Court look in and and [sic] search the Arms & The Man compartment for a bundle of sketches for the costumes, two of which are the original colored drawings and the rest copied outlines. Two sets of these outlines will be enough to bring to Ayot with the colored ones. We shall have to color them for Pascal. I am working at the new script now ...." The letter continues with details of arrangements for going to Ayot, and concludes: "No news. All serene here. GBS." The accompanying costume drawings are printed in blue ink on cream stock, and three of them reproduce Shaw's manuscript captions in the printing. Two are rather elaborate, incorporating multiple inset details in addition to the main drawing. The Sidney P. Albert Shaw collection at Brown includes four such cyclostyled costume drawings for ARMS & THE MAN, with indications that Shaw produced a total of six ca. 1894 for a production of the play. The undertaking here most likely is indicative of their reuse associated with work on a prospective film adaptation of the play. Gabriel Pascal's film of MAJOR BARBARA was released earlier that month, and his version of PYGMALION appeared in 1939. And although Pascal went on to produce CAESAR AND CLEOPATRA in 1945, and ANDROCLES AND THE LION in 1952, this film adaptation appears not to have come to fruition.

        A.L.S., 1941, Crowley's Wish to be "levered into my proper place as a poet. And prophet"

      - A rare and interesting four-page autograph letter signed by Aleister Crowley ("666") to his disciple Frieda Harris, April 11th (no year, but 1941). Written from "Barton Brow, Barton Cross" [Torquay] besides which Crowley has written "crucified Sir Percy" - a whimsical reference to Frieda Harris’ husband Sir Percy Alfred Harris, the letter begins with the Thelemic greeting, "Do what thou wilst shall be the whole of the law." He then goes on with six detailed numbered points, the first of which is devoted to an angry denouncement of solicitors (?) Hooper & Walker, who apparently were acting on behalf of his previous landlady and demanding damages for "dilapidations" and loss to the furnished rooms that he had rented. Despite his anger, Crowley manages to weave in a joke about Duchess of Windsor: "I must admit to being much intrigued by the ‘hard-worked Duchess’! ‘Ruined’, too! (can they refer to the late Mrs. Simpson?)" The second section concerns a note to be forwarded to a Miss Bach, apparently about reclaiming some property of his that is in her possession. In the third section he bemoans the tardiness of a typist, Mrs. Upton, in preparing a typescript of Liber LXV. He asks rhetorically if a "prod in the panties" might do some good, and adds that "if she has finished the typing, I could add in the Hebrew myself." In the fourth section he refers to several of his publications, in particular discussing his Songs for Italy, in the process lamenting that "I do have lapses into human frailty. I am ashamed all right; but I can’t help feeling that I could be so much more useful to manikind if I were gently levered into my proper place as a poet. And prophet. Also, it is surely abstract justice that those who was in 1923 what England painfully sees now should have a little credit and consideration. It is shaking hands with thieves and treacherous murdereers that leads to trouble. (Yes, I do hate the political game!) Besides the vision and forethought which I had in ’23 might still be useful to the world in this catastrophe". In the fifth section he discusses "a sad appeal" that he had received, and goes on to say that the answer is "all in [his play] Sir Palamedes the Saracen," and his Hymn to Astarte, continuing that "It is the attainment of the 8 = 3 that supplies the only permanent cure." In the final section Crowley reveals that he is still planning on founding another Abbey, and discusses the O.T.O. principles around which it would be organised, gently chiding Harris that these were explained "in your O.T.O. papers, which you lost!" He closes the letter with "Love is the law, love under will," and signs off "F .’. ly [fraternaly] 666." In very fine condition.
