Welty, Eudora
Doubleday Doran, 1942. Doubleday Doran. Very Good in Very Good- dust jacket. 1942. First US Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. The dust jacket edges are jagged, especially at the spine ends - chipping, 1/4" tears, and rubbing. It is price clipped. The three other corners on the two flaps have have lightly trimmed - about 1/4 inch by 1 inch. There appears to be a pencil mark next to the "The" on the dust jacket front. The hardcover has rubbed and dented edges, especially at the top end. Light corner bumps. A crease can be seen on the attached front fly page. And on the back cover. The text pages are in good shape. They are clean with no odor of tobacco smoke. The binding is tight. A few of the pages have a tiny corner tip torn off. There is no writing or soiling. The pages are in much better shape than the dust jacket. In the text block top end you can see one water spot and two scuff spots. The scuffs have created minute dents on the page edges which they affect. The water spot has caused the colored ink to seep down about 1/32 of an inch. Barely noticeable. Despite all its flaws, this is a good solid copy of an uncommon book. ; 8vo .

Illustrated wraps, 9 " x 6 1/2", 114 pp. A high-grade copy, with a complete spine showing only a bit of occasional roughening; minute edge wear; pages are lightly toned but very supple; else remarkably sharp for this publication, Very Good Plus or better; see scans. Nice copy. A scarce true original Street & Smith pulp edition of the timeless crime-fighter's series. In this issue, Maxwell Grant (Walter B. Gibson) offers the lead piece, "Judge Lawless [see cover scan], an 88 page story. Gary Barton contributes the short fiction "Identity Known", Henry Lysing "Codes" a piece for ciphering hobbyists. Other Shadow features are "The Shadow Club", "Highlights on The Shadow", and "The Pulse of the Nation". George Rozen classic cover artwork has the Shadow, in red-lined cloak and brandishing a .45 automatic, bringing the renegade Judge Lawless to justice. Walter B. Gibson, a professional magician, was hired rather quickly by Street & Smith to pen the theme stories for this famed periodical, primarily because its public was demanding it before it existed. "The Shadow", a now-classic "dark" hero who employed the tactics and reflected the moods of his sinister criminal foes, was in fact originally only an announcer for "Detective Stories", a radio show intended to promote sales of the pulp magazine of the same name (also by Street & Smith). This announcer - The Shadow (played initially by James LaCurto, then by Frank Readick) - com … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

DREISER, THEODORE [CARL VAN VECHTEN]
(), 1942. A fine 7" x 9-1/4" informal photographic "head shot" portrait by Carl Van Vechten of a seventy-year old Dreiser with a smile bordering on a laugh. INSCRIBED and SIGNED at the bottom with fine contrast: "To lovely Helen/with love and/admiration-/from T.D./Hollywood/January--/1942." Helen Richardson first met Dreiser in 1919 and married him in 1944. Dreiser left his entire estate to her in his will and, after her death in 1955, she was buried next to him. In 1942, however, Dreiser and Helen were often apart with Dreiser often romantically involved with another woman. Just a few months after inscribing this photograph to his future wife, Dreiser had an eleven-day fling with one of his ardent female admirers. Still, Dreiser's inscription captures the great feeling he had for Helen from the beginning. W. A.
