        The Way Some People Live

      Random House, New York 1943 - First edition. Fine in very near fine dustwrapper with a very small nick near the base of the spine and a faint spot on the spine, but an especially bright and fine example. Signed by the author and dated in 1976. Cheever's uncommon first book, a collection of short fiction that he never allowed to be reprinted. Only three of the stories have ever been subsequently printed, in an obscure paperback published in the 1960s. Consequently Cheever was loathe to sign copies, and this is one of only a very few thus. Combined with the especially nice condition, this may be the best copy we've seen. See this book in 3D on our site. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Picasso. Seize Peintures 1939-1943. Introduction de Robert Desnos.

      Les Éditions du Chêne., Paris. 1943 - A poor copy of this rare folio. 14/16 plates. Covers detached, title page detached and torn. Boldly signed by Picasso on the title-page in blue ink. From the collection of Phillip James, provenance Marcus Campbell Art Books. Mr Philip James, CBE, who died on Monday 1st may 1974, at the age of 72, was Librarian of the Royal Academy from 1969. Earlier he had a long association with the Arts Council and its predecessor, CEMA, as art director. He joined CEMA in1941as Deputy Secretary and a year later became director of art. For 17 years he worked with diligence and devotion to reveal and interpret painting and sculpture to a new and some times puzzled audience. He was closely involved in the selection and promotion of the many exhibitions which the Arts Council presents each year and credit must go to him for the part he played in winning greater acceptance and tolerance of experiment in art from the general public. His regard for tradition was as notable as his sympathy for innovation and the roll call of Art Council exhibitions presented during his time with that body is in itself a tribute to the breadth of his interests. Philip Brutton James, the son of the Rev John C James, was born on October 31, 1901 and educated at Sherborne and University College London. He became Sub-Librarian of the Middle Temple in 1923 and two years later joined the staff of the Victoria and Albert Museum Library of which he was appointed Keeper in 1936. From 1939 to 1941 he was with the Ministry of Home Security. After leaving the Arts Council in 1958 he became Director of Waddesdon Manor, Buckinghamshire which had been bequeathed to the National Trust by Mr James de Rothschild. He resigned the appointment after a year and then spent four years as Secretary and Editor of the Museums' Association. He was the author of 'Early Keyboard Instruments', 'Children's Book of Yesterday', 'English Book Illustration 1800-1900' and books on Van Gogh and Henry Moore. He married in 1926 Bertha daughter of Canon V L Whitechurch. They had one son and one daughter. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Quite an intriguing story here, but these are as many pieced together (& guessed) details as we have. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Most about 17.5 x 12.8 cm., in a plastic sleeve. Some holes punched in sides, without significant loss; otherwise fine. ---- Collection of autograph letters, signed, to Paiva Couceiro's close friend Saturio Pires, written while Paiva Couceiro was in exile in Spain. The earliest is dated January 6, 1925, the latest January 7, 1943. The letters are nearly all substantive, and include discussions of such matters as the famous letter Paiva Couceiro wrote to Mario Pessoa regarding a possible invasion of Angola (August 4, 1935), and a discussion of the Causa Monarchica, the Portuguese press and his own role as a leader of the Monarchist movement (August 15, 1930). There are also more personal letters, such as one of April 9, 1926, lamenting that the gas in his apartment had been cut off because he could not afford to pay the bill, and railing against those who call themselves Monarchists but will not help support him.Paiva Couceiro (1861-1944) became a prominent public figure in the 1890s, when his heroism helped keep Lourenço Marques from being captured. From 1907 to 1909 he was Governor of Angola. When the Republic was declared in 1910 he supported the King, and in 1911 handed in his resignation from the army with the famous line, "Revoltou-me contra a República para salvar Portugal!" He spent the remaining years of his life (mostly in self-imposed exile in Spain) working to restore the monarchy.---- On Paiva Couceiro, see @Grande enciclopédia XX, 21-23; also Manso Preto Cruz, @A Biografia política e o in-memoriam de Henrique de Paiva Couceiro (Lisbon, 1946), and Rocha Martins, @A Monarquia do Norte (Lisbon, 1922).

        Nine James Cagney Letters to Artist Will Crawford, Totaling 19 Pages, with Original Photo and Drawing

      1943 - A collection of Two Autographed Letters Signed and seven Typed Letters Signed from screen legend James Cagney (1899-1986) to his close friend, artist Will Crawford (1869-1944), dating from 1926 to 1943. Also with two Signed letters (one typed and the other in holograph) from the actor's wife, Frances "Billie" Cagney; an original photo of all three; and an envelope addressed and illustrated by Crawford to Cagney. The letters have some toning due to age and a couple of oxidation spots but are in remarkably nice shape; on average they are near fine or better. The Cagneys lived in the Free Acres artist colony in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey, as newlyweds in the 1920s. There they formed a bond with Crawford, an original Free Acres resident and career artist who illustrated a host of children's books and popular magazines, including *Puck*, *The Century*, *McClure's*, *Scribner's*, and *Redbook*. It was a relationship that lasted until Crawford's death in 1944. The letters to Crawford stretch from Cagney's early years as a vaudevillian bit player to his emergence as one of the biggest stars of the silver screen. They demonstrate Cagney's close friendship with the older artist through his financial assistance to Crawford, visits from California, and even a special effort to arrange a meeting between Crawford and the noted journalist Lincoln Steffens. The letters reveal Cagney as a man who never forgot his friends or stopped giving to those for whom he cared and needed it most. A wonderful collection of letters that present a peek into the private life of a true Hollywood legend.

        Othello

      The Theatre Guild 1943 - Typed document, entitled "Robeson's Contract": three-page contractual understanding to produce Shakespeare’s "Othello"; signed and annotated by both Robeson and Lawrence Langner, January 26, 1943 ----- During the summer of 1930, fifteen years after his first high school attempt at playing Othello, Robeson burst upon the English stage. While the historic but reserved performances brought international recognition, Robeson’s dream of starring in an American production was thwarted for more than a decade, stage director Margaret Webster conjectured in Our Time, “because an American audience would never come to see a black man play a love-scene with a white woman.” Nevertheless, the Phi Beta Kappa scholar persisted to study – telling a Daily Express reporter that the Shakespearean tragedy released “all sense of limitation, and all racial prejudice. In a word, Othello has made me free.” In the early 1940s, Robeson and Webster decided to test the waters together. A veteran cast was assembled (with the crucial roles of Desdemona and Iago assigned to Uta Hagen and Jose Ferrer; Webster herself played Emilia), and tryouts were scheduled in Cambridge and Princeton (Robeson’s birthplace). During August 1942, the racially mixed company gave laudatory performances at the Brattle and McCarter Theatres. Producers expressed interest. The Theatre Guild’s provident founder, Lawrence Langer, Robeson’s friend since the early 1920s, agreed to assume financial control of the show. Contracts were drawn up for Robeson, Webster (director), and Haggott (manager-technical advisor). Playwright Eugene O’Neill’s versatile colleague, Robert Edmund Jones, was recruited to design sets and costumes. Robeson’s contract, finalized on January 26, 1943, stipulated a weekly salary of $1500 (or ten percent of the weekly gross receipts, whichever was higher), with an added clause assuring no more than eight performances each week. According to the contractual arrangement, “all matters pertaining to artistic aspects of the production shall be under the control and supervision of Robeson, Webster, and Hagott, provided, however, that final selection of the cast and Robeson’s costumes shall be with Robeson.” (On one occasion, when the Guild insisted on replacing Ferrer and Hagen, Robeson brandished this contract and threatened to quit the production unless the husband-and-wife team stayed on. The Guild conceded.) “For the first time in the United States a Negro was playing one of the greatest parts ever written and the occasion was trying to prove something other than itself,” Webster recalled, when the play premiered at the Shubert Theatre on October 19, 1943. NAACP executive Walter White later told Langner that “the playing of a Moor by a Negro actor” (Robeson’s portrayal was “one of the most inspiring and perfectly balanced performances I have ever seen”), had raised the “hope that race prejudice is not as insurmountable an obstacle as it sometimes appears to be.” Before Othello ended its Broadway run in the summer of 1944, the 46-year-old tragedian had harvested a plethora of awards, including that of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. The record-breaking 296 performances were the supreme moment of Robeson’s artistic career and, in Webster’s words, a “landmark of American social consciousness.” Decades after Othello riveted Broadway, poet Robert Hayden paid homage to Robeson: “Call him deluded, say that he was dupe and by half-truths betrayed. I speak him fair in death, remembering the power of his compassionate art. All else fades.” A foundational piece of African Americana [Attributes: Signed Copy]
