In 1938, he was the only New York newspaper reporter with a permit to have a portable police-band shortwave radio. He listened closely to police broadcasts and prided himself on beating the authorities to the scene, keeping a portable darkroom in the trunk of his car in order to get his freelance product to the newspapers first. He later also worked in cinema, initially making his own short films and later collaborating with film directors such as Jack Donohue and Stanley Kubrick.

        In Parenthesis. Seinnyessit e gledyf ym penn mameu.

      8vo., original blue buckram , spine lettered on a grey backround within a gilt panel. With frontispiece and full page plate at the rear both by David Jones, and a map in the text. A fine copy. Second edition of this tour de force by the artist/poet, an innovative prose poem which stands as one of the handful of literary works of the First World War to which the term "great" may justifiably applied. Jones served in France and Flanders with the Royal Welch Fusiliers. This edition includes an Introduction by T. S. Eliot (Jones's advocate at Faber), and this is the deluxe issue, limited to seventy numbered copies (fifty for sale), specially bound and signed by Jones and Eliot. This copy No. 1. The author's first book and most celebrated work, which takes the form of an epic prose poem set in the first world war, based on the author's own experiences. It was ten years in the making and was eventually helped to publication by T.S. Eliot, who hailed the book as "a work of genius". It won the 1938 Hawthornden prize. Stephen Spender in a review for the NY Times said: "This work of a poet-painter has its every word chiselled out of experience, and it is probably the World War I monument most likely to survive."

(.) Si l'art, après quelques milliers d'années d'existence, et malgré les appels au néant que la mode la plus délétère lui prodigue, espère survivre en face du progrès, (.) qu'accomplissent les sciences et les techniques (.), il le devra à l'exemple permanent et à l'influence ravivée d'une poignée d'hommes comme Landowski."
