        The Marihuana Story (Collection of 15 still photographs from the 1950 film)

      Sonny Amusement Enterprises, Inc. / S. A. C. L., Los Angeles 1950 - Collection of 15 vintage black-and-white still photographs from the 1950 Spanish-Argentine film. The financial success of the 1949 exploitation film "She Shoulda Said No," a morality tale involving the use of marijuana, prompted distributors to import this film from Argentina for distribution in the US. It was a success on the exploitation circuit (drive-ins, grindhouse cinema, etc.), and was even entered at Cannes.Pablo Urioste (Lagar) is a respected surgeon forced to experience a nightmarish world after his wife, a marijuana addict, dies in a nightclub. He unwisely elects to investigate on his own, and through flashbacks he tells his story to the police, about how he was ultimately drugged, beaten, blackmailed, and currently experiencing some bad-trip flashbacks. Klimovsky founded Argentina's first film club in 1929, directed several Spanish horror films (including "La noche de Walpurgis," said to have started the Spanish horror boom of the 1970s), an 1954 Argentine film called "Witchcraft," and the entire 1979 TV series "La barraca."Set in Mexico. 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm). Near Fine. Complete collation details available on request.Schaefer, pp. 244-245; Weldon (1996), p. 356.

        A Bibliography of John Dos Passos

      Normandie House, Chicago 1950 - Octavo (23 cm), pp. 94, [2].

Yrs ever, Dos." Limited edition (#12/365). Brown cloth with gilt spine titling and Dos Passos facsimile signature on upper board, deckle edge. Includes Addenda of periodical articles tipped in on recto of final leaf. Boards have mostly light edge and corner wear and some rubbing, with two indentations at top of upper board. Glue from Addenda has bled through onto verso of final leaf.A unique association copy. Dos Passos was called "Dos" by his friends, and often signed books to them in this manner. Thompson, who was head of HM's trade division for most of the 42 years he spent there, was called a "brilliant conceptualizer" by his colleagues upon his passing. In addition to Dos Passos, he worked with Bernard deVoto, Anya Seton, John Kenneth Galbraith, and Andrew and Betsy Wyeth. In his introduction to this volume, Dos Passos reflects that "It's hard to imagine what anybody could possibly say to introduce a volume of bibliography . listing his own works. It's like asking a man to engrave the plate on his coffin after he's been laid away in it by the undertaker." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

"Un des livres les plus importants du XVIIIe siècle. Reconnu comme tel par les historiens des doctrines politiques (.), il a été proclamé par le marquis d'Argenson comme "le livre des livres", Babeuf s'en réclama au cours de son procès, Fourier s'en inspira de façon évidente, Tocqueville, dans l' 'Ancien Régime', y retrouva 'plusieurs des théories politiques qui ont le plus effrayé la France' '" (Chinard, 'Code de la Nature', Paris, Clavreuil, 1950, p. 7). (Chinard, p. 81. Einaudi, 4031. Hartig & Soboul, 'Utopies', p. 55. Higgs, 1594. Kress, 5457. Maffey, 'L'utopia della ragione', p. 230, n°8). 2- "L'une des meilleures oeuvres de Fougeret. Curieux ouvrage, à la fois autobiographique, récit de voyage, recueil d'histoires galantes, pamphlet politique et littéraire (.). L'écrivain y révèle le sens de la vie, de la couleur, du pittoresque. La critique de Fougeret est aiguisée, parfois venimeuse, souvent exprimée avec une indéniable force corrosive et une causticité toute voltairienne (.). Foncièrement asocial, Fougeret est un solitaire naturellement insurgé" (R. Trousson, &#145;Romans libertins du XVIIIe s.&#146;). Le livre est donné comme l'une des sources du 'Candide' de Voltaire. (Gay, I, 740. M. Saillet, p. 235). Première et dernière garde bruni. Trace de restauration aux mors. &#145;Code de la Nature&#146; est relié après &#145;Le Cosmopolite&#146;. Provenance : "M. de Goussonville" (d'époque) et "Jules Remy", avec petites signatures autographes. Bel exemplaire, dans une rare reliure de l'époque comportant des plats entièrement garnis d&#146;un décor au noir de semis de fleurs et de c&#156;urs dans un encadrement.
