      New York, 1943. - Oblong 8vo. 1 p. Reverse with autograph musical quotation signed by Arthur Rubinstein. The second verse of his famous poem "Un Canto para Bolivar", read by Neruda at the University of Mexico on July 24, 1941, for the 101st anniversary of the death of Simon Bolivar, and published in an edition of 500 copies (Imprenta Universitaria, 1941). Neruda noted this stanza in an autograph album in New York in 1943. "Tu pequeño cadáver de capitán valiente | ha extendido en lo inmenso su metálica forma, | de pronto salen dedos tuyos entre la nieve | y el australien pescador saca a la luz de pronto | tu sonrisa, tu voz palpitando en las redes". - Two years earlier, Rubinstein penned four bars of the Polish national anthem "Himno Polaco" in the autograph album from which this sheet originates.

        Blätter einer Fächerpalme.

      - Bleistift, auf braunem Papier. 52,3:35,5 cm. – Fehlstelle im rechten Rand, mehrere Randbeschädigungen ergänzt, Knickfalte links unten. Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlaß des Künstlers, der 1943-1993 im Schloßmuseum Weimar verwahret wurde. Inv. 134. Der Landschaftsmaler und Radierer Carl Hummel war 1834-1842 Schüler an der Weimarer Zeichenakademie bei dem Maler und Radierer F. Preller d.Ä. (1804-1878), der Hummels spezielle Vorliebe für die „heroische Landschaft" prägte. Gemeinsam mit Preller unternahm er 1839-1841 Studienreisen nach Holland, Norwegen, Rügen und nach Tirol. Neben dem Studium bei Preller machte er zudem bei J.B. Schwerdgeburth (1759–nach 1822) eine Ausbildung zum Kupferstecher. 1842 reiste er nach Italien; in Rom, auf Capri und Sizilien hielt er sich längere Zeit auf. 1844 kehrte er in seine Geburtsstadt zurück. 1845-1846 besuchte er erneut Rom, danach reiste er in die Schweiz. 1855 erfolgte auf Einladung des Erbprinzen Georg von Meiningen ein Aufenthalt auf dessen Villa Carlotta am Comer See. 1859 wurde er als Professor an die Weimarer Zeichenschule berufen. 1869 unternahm er eine Reise nach Korsika, in den folgenden Jahren jedoch meist nur noch Reisen in die Mittelgebirge. Hummel, Sohn des gefeierten Pianisten und Komponisten Johann Nepomuk Hummel, zählt zu den bekanntesten Künstlern seiner Heimatstadt. Sein Vater war von Maria Pawlowna (1786-1859), Großfürstin von Rußland, Erbprinzessin von Sachsen-Weimar und Großherzogin von Sachsen-Weimar-Eisenach 1818 als Kapellmeister nach Weimar berufen worden, eine Stellung, die er bis 1838 innehatte. Die Großfürstin, die nach ihrer Heirat 1804 aus St. Petersburg nach Weimar kam, förderte mittels ihrer reichen Mitgift in besonderer Weise Musik, Theater, Bildende Kunst und Literatur und verhalf damit dem zwar geistig und literarisch hoch entwickelten, aber verarmten Hof zu neuem Aufschwung. Auch Carl erhielt bekanntermaßen von der Großfürstin einige Aufträge.

A bit cocked, small tears and light fraying at the crown, a good copy in a price-clipped good later issue dustwrapper which is sunned at the spine and has some chipping on the front panel. An exceptional association copy of this title.

The Sklars were very close to Caspary. George Sklar was a leftist playwright and novelist and the co-author with Caspary of the play adaptation of Laura, as well as several other plays. One of the scarcest film source books, basis for the classic 1944 film directed by Otto Preminger (and Rouben Mamoulian) and starring Gene Tierney, Dana Andrews, Vincent Price, and Clifton Webb.

        TYPESCRIPT (Sinclair's Own Working Ribbon Copy) of WIDE IS THE GATE

      (New York): (Viking Press)((1943)). First Edition, Complete text, 1034 pages continuously numbered with variations; numbered consecutively by chapters. Placed into three large binders. Sinclair's own working copy, apparently a second draft and first complete early copy to be located. Extensive pencil annotations by the author with thousands of corrections, deletions, and additions to the text, from single words to entire pages. Many revisions greatly differ from the published novel. For instance, at the end of the first paragraph after describing Lanny Budd's inner convictions--"...that thou hast forsaken the Lord thy God, and that My fear is not in thee, saith the Lord God of Hosts"--Sinclair has added, then crossed out: "For of old time I have broken thy yoke, and burst thy bands; thou saidst, I will not transgress; when upon every high hill and under every green tree thou wanderest, playing the harlot." After a narrow defeat in a bitter campaign for the California governorship, Sinclair created Lanny Budd, "America's self-diagnosed schizophrenic liberal." This is the fourth in the series of eleven novels about Lanny Budd, the third-- DRAGON'S TEETH-- having won the Pulitzer Prize. Sinclair considered this series the most important part of his literary production, which also included, of course, THE JUNGLE., Manuscript, Near Fine

The message is quite clear: during wartime, all must sacrifice, and some sacrifice more than others.
