        THE PARADINE CASE

      [Culver City]: Vanguard Films, Inc., 12 August and 10 August 1946. [Culver City]: Vanguard Films, Inc., 12 August and 10 August 1946.. Two volumes. [1],195;[1],205 leaves. Quarto. Mimeographed typescripts, printed on rectos only. Bradbound in stencil printed wrappers. Wrappers slightly nicked and soiled, one upper wrapper detached at upper brad, but very good. A studio rerun of a the 16 April "First Rough Draft (With Dialogue from Novel)" of this adaptation to the screen of Hichens' 1933 novel, accompanied by a first run of the "Third Draft Script." The first draft is credited exclusively to Alfred Hitchcock and his collaborator wife, Alma Reville; the third draft is identified as by James Bridie, based on an adaptation by Alama Reville. According to one source, Selznick had acquired the film rights to the novel prior to its publication, but submission of a preliminary script in 1934 to the Breen Office resulted in assurances that it would not pass muster according to the PCA. So the project was shelved until Selznick returned to it in 1946. It is clear that at that time, scripts from the 1934 effort, as well as from an adaptation attempted at MGM were consulted. In December, the "Final Shooting Script" was reached, after interim contributions by Ben Hecht. The final shooting script is credited solely to David O. Selznick, but acknowledges dependence on the adaptation by Alma Reville. Final screen credit for the screenplay fell to Selznick, and neither Hecht's nor Birdie's contributions were credited. Hitchcock directed, and Gregory Peck, Ann Todd, Charles Laughton, Ethel Barrymore In a role that earned an Oscar nomination) and Louis Jourdan starred, among others, and a 29 December 1947 premiere brought to a conclusion the long and tangled series of attempts to bring Hichens' novel to the screen.

        APACHE. HAND-COLORED SPORTING ENGRAVING PRIVATELY PRINTED FOR WILLIAM WOODWARD BY FRANK J. LOWE, FORMERLY OF THE DERRYDALE PRESS

      [New York: Frank J. Lowe], 1946. [New York: Frank J. Lowe], 1946. First Issue. Image size 14 x 17 inches; with engraved legend and margins. Framed. Slight foxing to image and margin. Mitchell, British Equestrian Artists, pp. 407-08; Ordeman, The Aquatints, Drypoints and Etchings of The Derrydale Press, p. 61 . Martin Stainforth is regarded as Australia's leading horse painter, although he was an established artist in his native England before emigrating in 1908. In 1925 he went to America for an extended stay, during which time he painted a number of leading horses, including some of the William Woodward stable which were reproduced as prints by The Derrydale Press. He was noted for his painstaking efforts in making numerous working sketches and watercolors until he felt he had the image just right. States Mitchell: 'stainforth's detail and accuracy in likeness were very fine and very natural. He avoided the pitfalls of flatness and photographic stiffness so often found in this type of work". Printed for William Woodward, a continuation of the series originally begun by The Derrydale Press; when the Press closed in 1942, Frank J. Lowe, its vice-president and sales manager, continued the production of high-quality prints, including additional ones for presentation by Mr. Woodward to his friends

        The Big Clock

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1946. New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1946. First Edition. Fearing, a Communist Party member, was widely respected as one of the great revolutionary poets of the 1930's, and "acknowledged by critics as having anticipated some of the styles and themes of Beat and early New Left poetry" (see Alan M. Wald, WRITING FROM THE LEFT. NY: Verso, 2004; p.4). Though primarily known for his poetry, Fearing wrote several crime fiction novels between 1941-1960, The Big Clock being the best-known among them. Basis for the highly-regarded 1948 film noir, directed by John Farrow and starring Ray Milland, Charles Laughton, and Maureen O'Sullivan. A superb example of a fragile book prone to wear and fading. THE DARK PAGE, VOL.I, p.94. First Printing. Octavo (21cm); black cloth with titles stamped in gilt on the spine; dustjacket; 175pp. About Fine, with some trivial rubbing along the board edges and to the upper and lower left corners of the front panel to note. Dustjacket is unclipped, very lightly rubbed, with a hint of sunning at the spine and a single tiny tear at the upper edge of the front panel; very Near Fine, and among the best examples we've seen.
