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

      Los Angeles: Sonny Amusement Enterprises, Inc. / S. A. C. L., 1950. Collection of 15 vintage black-and-white still photographs from the 1950 Spanish-Argentine film.&#11;&#11;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.&#11;&#11;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 television series "La barraca."&#11;&#11;Set in Mexico. &#11;&#11;8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm). Near Fine. &#11;&#11;Complete collation details available on request.&#11;&#11;Schaefer US.

Von 1935 bis '45 zog er sich auf Grund von Denunziation und Repressionen zurück und übte öffentlich nur seinen Lehrberuf aus, der ihm materielle Unabhängigkeit sicherte. Nach 1945 war er weiterhin als Lehrer tätig und durfte zunächst wieder ausstellen, geriet aber im Zuge der Formalismusdiskussion auf Grund seiner Position der "Eigengesetzlichkeit der Kunst" selbstredend erneut ins Abseits. - Provenienz: Das Blatt stammt aus dem hier vorliegenden, bisher unbekannten Nachlass der Illustratorin und Bühnenbildnerin Gerda Schafhirt, einer Gefährtin von Kuhfuss, die u.a. den Sommer 1955 mit ihm zusammenlebend und -arbeitend in Born auf dem Darss verbrachte, und ist entsprechend noch nicht bei Hellwich/Röske verzeichnet.

        Letters (Two Tls; one signed post card)

      n.p. : n.p., n.d. . First edition. no binding. Very Good. Two typed letters signed (Tls), with one handwritten, signed postcard to marshall A. Best Viking editor who oversaw the Viking Portables regarding publishing a Portable Stephen Crane. The first letter is dated 20 February 1950 on Berryman's Princeton stationary, some 250 words, regarding permissions, word count; the postcard is dated (publisher stamp) May 25 ,1951, begins with JB's current project: "I was breaking my brains out on the end of a draft of a short critical biography of Wm. Shakespeare [a long time unpublished during his lifetime project] when your bad news came last month". The bad news was problems with Knopf re: permissions. "If the world still exists then, and you do, and I do, we might consider again. Meanwhile if the bombs begin I hope they will not neglect Knopf." The final letter is on small cream paper dated 2 jan 1952; approximaely 190 words. He refers two having "been dilatory about the return of a contract" and refers to two books. The bulk of the letter refers to his colleague Randall Jarrell doing a Portable Kipling. "Shakespeare is going on slowly." All three signed in ink, with red ink date stamp and staple holes; both letters folded, with pencil notations, but little wear and very good. Berryman never did publish with Viking, nor any of the boks discussed, including his Shakespeare, though FS&G did in 1999, publish a Berryman's Shakespeare. There was no Portable Crane until 1969 (and not Berryman) and no Kipling until 1982. The Viking Portables along with The Modern Library were essential college textbooks, the most famous Viking Portale being Cowley's editing of Faulkner putting hisYoknapatawpha stories in chronological order; helping him to win the Nobel Prize three years after the books publication in 1946. .

        [Archive]: Hotchkiss Family Papers of New Haven, Connecticut, circa 1820-1950s

      (New Haven, Connecticut, 1950. Very Good. Hotchkiss family papers consisting of letters, documents, photographs, and associated ephemera spanning three lineal generations: Henry Hotchkiss (1801-71), Henry Lucius Hotchkiss (1842-1930), and Henry Stuart Hotchkiss (1878-1947). Descended from Samuel Hotchkiss, who settled in New Haven in 1641, all three men were prominent in the manufacturing and financial interests of their native city, serving as corporate leaders of the L. Candee and United States Rubber companies, and associated financial institutions. The bulk of the material centers on the family home at 576 Chapel Street, New Haven, of Henry and his son Henry Lucius Hotchkiss, who succeeded his father as president of the Candee Rubber Company in 1871. The collection includes over 700 family letters and over 200 business-related letters; over 100 family and business-related documents, over 150 cabinet cards, many platinum and gelatin silver prints, along with hundreds of snapshots; two diaries; and associated manuscripts and ephemera. There is some scattered spotting and fading to the cabinet card photographs, along with some chips and bumps to the mounts, scattered short tears and creasing to some of the letters and documents, overall very good.Several of the photographs and ephemera date from the schooldays of Henry Lucius and Henry Stuart (at the S.A. Thomas' School and Yale University); and the collection includes many letters by all three men written to their mothers, wives, and other family members, and to business associates from throughout their careers. Henry Hotchkiss first entered into partnership with L. Candee in 1843 to manufacture rubber boots and shoes under the Goodyear patent: he became one of the foremost manufactures of Connecticut, and also served as president of the New Haven County Bank for 21 years. Not long after Henry Lucius took over the firm, the entire plant was destroyed by fire in 1877. He rebuilt the plant on a much larger scale and later merged the L. Candee Company with other rubber corporations, forming the United States Rubber Company in 1892. At its height the Candee Rubber Company employed nearly 2,000 workers. Henry Lucius also served as president of the Union Trust Company of New Haven, and oversaw the consolidation of the Union & New Haven Trust Company. His son Henry Stuart graduated from the Yale Scientific School in 1900, served as Lt. Colonel in the Air Service during World War I, thereafter becoming vice president of the L. Candee Company, president of United States Rubber Plantations and the Cambridge Rubber Company, and director of the Union & New Haven Trust Company. Many of the snapshots in the archive document both Hotchkiss's trips abroad to rubber plantations (and other sites) in Brazil, Southeast Asia (Sumatra and the Malay Peninsula), and elsewhere.Approximately half (or more) of the material in the archive relates to the wives of all three men: Elizabeth D. Prescott (a descendant of the John Prescott family of Boston); Jane Trowbridge (great-granddaughter of Noah Webster); and Elizabeth W. Washington (from the Washington family of Wessyngton Plantation in Tennessee). Most of the family letters are addressed to them, from all three Hotchkiss men and others. For example, among the letters dating from the Civil War period are several from Henry Lucius to this mother (Elizabeth Prescott) written when he was traveling in the Washington area and meeting with various friends serving in Connecticut regiments. He also tells of his visit in 1865 to Freedman's Village "a settlement of Contrabands" in Virginia. Also included are letters and documents from friends and members of the Prescott and Trowbridge families dating back to the early 1800s, and approximately 200 letters from friends and members of the Washington family to Betty W. Hotchkiss dating from the 1940s through the early 1950s.The correspondence from several relatives and friends further documents the day-to-day life of this close-knit family during the rise and heyday of rubber manufacturing in New Haven, which was for many years one of the city's largest and most important industries.While we did not fully review and list every letter and document, a short list of selected items follows:Early ephemeraS.A.
