        HATTER'S CASTLE (Remarkable Archive of 107 Original Key Book Movie Stills from the 1942 Film Adaptation)

      London: British Paramount, 1942. Cronin, A. J. HATTER'S CASTLE. 107 Original Double Weight key book stills from the infamous 1942 British Film Noir HATTER'S CASTLE based on the 1931 novel by A. J. Cronin. The film, made and distributed by British Paramount, was shot in England during the middle of WW2, few artifacts survive from the film, and finding another nearly complete set like this is a hard-to-imagine situation. The stills are all different, no duplicates, and the condition is uniformly VG-Fine with minor blemishes. The movie starred Robert Newton, a very young and beautiful Deborah Kerr, an equally young and handsome James Mason and Enid Stamp-Taylor who, although perhaps a long forgotten actress, is lovingly photographed here as befits her beauty. All double weight, all roughly 8 x 11, glossy originals with holes, as called for, to insert into 1942 "key book" publicity binders. Exceedingly rare survival.. Unbound. Near Fine.

        Ms. Brief mit eigenh. U.

      Pacific Palisades, 5. August 1942.. 1 S. Gr.-4to. Mit ms. adr. Kuvert.. An Franklin Rouda von der Harvard University mit &quote;some information about the chapters which puzzle you&quote;: &quote;You ask me whether the author is willing to vouch for the reality of the scene in question. Of necessity, the answer to that must be somewhat fluid and follow a middle course between yes and no which will perhaps not be to your liking. When I wrote those chapters of the Magic Mountain I was under the influence of personal experiences which I had had at the occultistic experimental sessions of the famous late occultist, Dr. Schrenk-Notzing in Munich. Personally, I have learned that there is something true and undeniable to the occult sphere which does not prevent me, however, from regarding it as spiritually uninteresting and unworthy of human exploration. I have expressed this attitude also in an essay wherein I give a detailed account of these experiences to which I have referred. The article is published in English under the title ,Experiences in the Occult' in a volume ,Three Essays', brought out by A. Knopf. The hero of my novel stumbles into this dubious atmosphere influenced by the rather unsympathetic figure of Dr. Krokowski, and you have seen how he finally reacts to it - with a certain moral indignation he interrupts the session and walks out. There may be something like a temporal television in what he has seen, namely, the vision of his cousin with the equipment of the then still imminent World War I, which I do not consider as theoretically altogether unthinkable [ ]&quote;. - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr.

        Fragments du Narcisse

      Octave Mannoni, Antananarivo 1942 - Tananarive, Sn, 1942. 32 x 24,5 cm, 1 f. bl. + 10 ff. n. ch. + 1 f. bl., couv. en papier de bananier, imprimée en noir et portant la mention "hors commerce", sans page de titre, justification et ach. d'impr. en 3e de couv. Rarissime édition du Narcisse faite à Madagscar sous la direction d'Octave Mannoni et destinée à sa classe de philosophie du lycée Gallieni, limitée à 30 ex. La préface est inédite, de même que les commentaires, placés au v° des feuillets, en regard du texte de Valéry. L'achevé d'imprimer porte la mention : "La difficulté en temps de blocus de fournir des textes à ses élèves a induit un professeur de Madagascar à faire imprimer ce poème extrait de Charmes en y joignant des annotations purement scolaires. L'ingéniosité locale a permis la fabrication de ce papier essayé ici pour la première fois et sur lequel on a tiré trente exemplaire de ces cahiers destinés à la classe de philosophie du lycée Gallieni. En aucun cas ces cahiers ne doivent se trouver mis en vente. Imprimé par Henri Vidalie, Tananarive en février 1942 sur papier Blocus." En raison des conditions du temps, cette édition fut faite sans le consentement de l'auteur. Néanmoins, nous disposons du brouillon d'une lettre adressée par Mannoni à Valéry en 1942 ainsi que de 2 réponses de Julien Monod (1942 & 1944) qui montrent l'intérêt que Valéry a porté à cette édition et au commentaire qu'en fit le philosophe et futur psychanalyste (photocopie jointe), qui précise : "Madagascar serait-elle le dernier refuge de la contrefaçon en librairie ? Ose-t-on vous éditer sans votre aveu ? Il n'en est rien ! Simplement, je n'ai pas voulu traiter par l'affreuse polycopie habituelle le beau texte du Narcisse, ni l'exposer, en le dictant, à des mutilations plus affreuses encore. D'autre part les Imprimeries dorment, faute de papier ; pour quelques centaines de francs j'ai pu donner à mes trente élèves une copie du Narcisse aussi convenable que les circonstances le permettent. Cependant, bien qu'il s'agisse d'une "polycopie imprimée", de cahiers qui ne sortent point de la classe de philosophie du lycée Gallieni, je n'aurais pas manqué de vous demander préalablement votre autorisation si n'avions été si longtemps et si complètement privés de toutes communications par mer et par air. (.) Sur la matière même de ce cahier : on a employé un papier de fortune, fait avec de vieux papiers, et dont la fabrication n'était pas encore au point ; mais on n'avait pas le choix. Pour la couverture, on a trouvé un papier de fabrication locale déjà ancienne, fait de fibres de bananier, et destiné surtout à fabriquer des abat-jour et de boites. Les caractères étant vieux et souvent cassés, il a fallu tirer page par page pour n'utiliser qu'un choix à peu près convenable. Je serais extrêmement heureux si vous pouviez avoir quelque plaisir de collectionneur à considérer comme une curiosité cette copie de votre propre poème - à cause des circonstances somme toute un peu exceptionnelles dans laquelle elle a été faite." Dans son 1er courrier, Julien Monod écrit "mon ami Paul Valéry m'a montré hier chez lui votre commentaire du Narcisse dont il m'a fait l'éloge" et lui en demande un exemplaire pour son Valeryanum, exemplaire que Mannoni semble avoir toutes les peines à retrouver, puisque, dans un courrier daté de juin 1945, l'une des personnes à qui il en avait confié un lui assure l'avoir égaré. Dans une autre lettre, Monod écrit "je vous remercie beaucoup des renseignements que vous [me] donnez sur le cahier en question, comme de votre aimable intention de chercher à en retrouver un exemplaire pour mon Valeryanum. J'ai fait lire votre lettre à notre poète et je crois bien qu'il va vous écrire lui-même un mot, comme il comptait le faire depuis longtemps, mais sans avoir la possibilité de communiquer avec vous." Edition connue de Karaïskakis (67C), l'exemplaire qu'il décrit étant en tous points conforme au nôtre. Bel exemplaire, avec qqes traces de pliures. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

The B&W and color photos, taken while she was working for American Trucker, Trucker News, and Roadstar, date from the 1970s to the early 1990s and capture the teamster lifestyle with images of drivers, trucks, racing, social gathering, and support industries such as distribution centers, truck stops, farms markets, etc. The majority of the photographs are loose with a handful matted and framed, plus another 600 photographs of her childhood and family in photo albums or loose photo pages. Overall near fine with a third of the photographs with adhesive remnants on the rear from being removed from an album; another smaller group with tape remnants and minor wear. .

Inscribed presentation copy to Joseph Shaw, editor of BLACK MASK MAGAZINE: "To Joe Shaw who had/ more to do with Lennox's/ development than I did/ Tod Ballard." "SAY YES TO MURDER set the standard for the Hollywood murder mystery. By careful depiction of scene and close emphasis on character, Ballard created a cast of characters which became clichés of the movie industry: the crusty studio head, the long-suffering girlfriend, even cops who are less condescending than usual." - Pederson (ed), St. James Guide to Crime and Mystery Writers (4th edition), pp. 41- 43. "SAY YES TO MURDER is a consistently rewarding hard- boiled novel." - Pronzini and Muller, 1001 Midnights, pp. 39-40.

        HOW TO COOK A WOLF

      Duell, Sloan and Pearce, [1942]., New York - Fisher, M. F. K. HOW TO COOK A WOLF. Advance Review Copy. New York: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, [1942]. Plain unprinted white wrappers in dustwrapper. First Edition. 8vo., 261pp. A fine copy in a very good or better dustwrapper that is glued by the publisher to the spine & showing some rubbing there. A rare state of the author's third book; perhaps the only example to come to market in the last 25 years. Fisher wrote "How to Cook a Wolf" in 1942, in the midst of World War II, just as food rationing programs were kicking into high gear with strict limits placed on basics like sugar, butter, meat, & coffee. War-time slogans encouraged American households to "make do, or do without." [Fisher wrote "How to Cook a Wolf." as a reminder of the pleasure - the rapture - you could still find in food, even under a tight budget or war-time rationing. "I early on thought, as long as we have to eat to live, we may as well have fun doing it. There should be some enjoyment of food, as we do with making love, or keeping warm. It's one of the three basic needs of our lives," she said. "How to Cook a Wolf" reads like an issue of Lady's Home Journal, if the editorial staff were taken over by a philosopher with an empty stomach, a slightly tipsy poet and your mischievous, foxy godmother who once kept many lovers. Best lines include: "Probably one of the most private things in the world is an egg, until it is broken." On cooking during a war-time black-out: "Use as many fresh things as you can, always, and then trust to luck and your blackout cupboard and what you have decided, inside yourself, about the dignity of man." And this advice, from the chapter called "How to Lure the Wolf": "One way to look your prettiest in the kitchen, and make the wolf think that even if his hot breath whuffs through the keyhole and ruffles your very curls you are nigh adamant, is to put up a little mirror." "How to Cook a Wolf" is part cookbook, part essay collection. Fisher shares practical recipes that can be made cheaply: how to make your own toothpaste; a recipe for fried calves' brains, since that cut of meat was cheaper and more readily available under rationing programs; instructions for a good, low-cost sherry cocktail.] - Weekend America.
