Off to a Good Start: A Handbook for Modern Parents, Black, Irma Simonton
21 Black, Irma Simonton Off to a Good Start: A Handbook for Modern Parents
New York Harcourt, Brace and Company (c.1946) 2nd printing (B) Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dj Illustrated by Lydia Cooley 
[nearly flawless book, one tiny mark on spine; jacket very slightly worn at extremities, thin diagonal mark at bottom of rear panel, all jacket flap corners evenly trimmed (but no evidence of price removal, i.e. not "price-clipped" as such)]. (pen and ink drawings) This "simple, non-technical book about the day to day problems which confront the parents of small children . . . represents no extremist or faddist point of view but is based on standards of 'normal' behavior, bearing in mind always that the 'normal' child is to a great extent an abstraction." (I'll say!) Ms. Black was a noted educator and the author of more than twenty books for children. A teacher at New York's Bureau of Educational Experiments (later renamed the Bank Street College of Education) from 1931, and later the head of its Division of Publications and Communications, she wrote a weekly newspaper column called "Life with Junior" in the 1940s, from which much of this book seems to have been derived. Among her many activities in the field of childhood education, she at one time wrote for a radio program entitled "The Baby Institute," which featured one of her contemporaries who would achieve much greater fame in the child-raising-advice field: Dr. Benjamin Spock. (Well, at least she has an award named after her, presented annually by the Bank Street College of Education, for excellence in children's literature.)

Uncommon, with only ten library copies recorded by OCLC.

The Wilder Shores of Love, Blanch, Lesley
23 Blanch, Lesley The Wilder Shores of Love
New York Simon and Schuster 1954 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Good dj Illustrated by (dj design) Peter Hollander 
[light shelfwear, slight exposure of boards at bottom corners; jacket edgeworn, various small tears, a little paper loss at top of spine and at top left corner of rear panel, small bits of paper loss at both edges of spine near bottom, large but faint water-stain to rear panel and spine]. (B&W photographs, other illustrations) Joint biography of four nineteenth-century European women who lived lives of adventure, in search of "in the East, glowing horizons of emotion and daring which were vanishing from the West. They were realists of romance, who were able to act out their dreams, and did so, robustly. The four were: "Aimee Dubucq de Rivery, cousin of the Empress Josephine, who was captured by corsairs and flung into the seraglio of the Grant Turk; Isabelle Eberhardt, the chaotic Slav, mystic and voluptuary, who galloped off into the Sahara dressed as an Arab, to die, at thirty, riddled with diseases which were the price of her freedom; Jane Digby, Lady Ellenborough, the beautiful raffish creature [whose] innocent and romantic idealism led her, at last, to the black tents of the Bedouins; and Isabel Burton, wife of 'Burton of Arabia' [explorer Sir Richard Francis Burton], loving with single-minded fury, possessing, through the man, the East she craved." The author, a widely-traveled journalist and fashion editor, was married from 1945 to 1962 to French novelist/diplomat Romain Gary; beginning in 1956, he was stationed for a time in Los Angeles as France's Consul General, a situation that put the couple into proximity to the Hollywood crowd.

The Torrent (Entre Naranjos), Blasco Ibañez, Vicente (translated from the Spanish by Isaac Goldberg and Arthur Livingston)
24 Blasco Ibañez, Vicente (translated from the Spanish by Isaac Goldberg and Arthur Livingston) The Torrent (Entre Naranjos)
New York E.P. Dutton & Company 1921 4th printing Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dj Illustrated by (dj) Dean Cornwell 
[good solid book, light shelfwear, dust-soiling to top edge of text block; jacket is lightly soiled, one tiny chip at bottom edge of front panel, additional minor chipping at top corner of front flap]. Set in the author's native Valencia, "its seething religious and political life, rich with the vigor of a hotter sun than ours and the emotions of an older, more passionate race," this novel tells the story of the tempestuous -- nay, torrential -- romance between an opera prima donna, Leonora, and her lover Rafael. (In the MGM movie adaptation, called simply TORRENT, the duo were portrayed by Greta Garbo and Ricardo Cortez; released in early 1926, it was Garbo's first American film. Fun fact: there had actually been an earlier film version, produced in Spain in 1914 under the title LA TIERRA DE LOS NARANJOS.)

25 Blatty, William Peter William Peter Blatty on The Exorcist, from Novel to Film
New York Bantam Books 1974 First Edition Softcover Near Fine 
[nice tight book, light external soiling, faint diagonal crease at bottom right corner of front cover]. Mass Market PB (B&W photographs) A comprehensive history of the creation of THE EXORCIST -- novel and film -- from the perspective of the book's author. Contents: a 39-page introduction by Blatty in which he discusses how he came to write the book and how it began to make its transition from page to screen; his first draft screenplay; a discussion of "Why Changes Were Made in the Screenplay" (11 pages); a "Transcript with Scene Settings" (essentially a continuity script for the finished film); full credits for the film. Surprisingly uncommon, given the massive popularity of the movie.

Never Go Back; a novel without a plot, Boas, George
26 Boas, George Never Go Back; a novel without a plot
New York/London Harper & Brothers 1928 1st Edition (G-C) Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dj Illustrated by (dj) "PM" 
[moderate wear to spine ends, spine slightly turned, small previous owner's signature and date on ffep; jacket somewhat age-toned, shallow chipping to base of spine]. "A pungent satire of university life," the first (and only) novel by the noted American historian of philosophy, who over a long and distinguished academic career (primarily at Johns Hopkins University, from 1921 to 1956) wrote over a dozen books, including "The Inquiring Mind," "The Limits of Reason" and "Vox Populi." Boas received his education primarily at Brown University and UC-Berkeley (earning his Ph.D. at the latter in 1917), and the latter seems to have been the primary model for his novel's fictional "Oralia University" (typo'd as "Uralia" in the jacket copy), described as being 3,000 miles away from the protagonist's New England hometown, and having an ocean nearby -- although the fact that his main character is a faculty member rather than a student would suggest that his experience at Johns Hopkins also informed his satirical outlook. Further paralleling the author's own life, the novel's action begins prior to World War I, and its narrative encompasses his military service in France during the war. Prof. Boas seems to have gotten his autobiographical-novelistic ya-ya's out of his system with this book, as this marked the end of his career as a fictionalist.

27 Bodin, Walter, and Burnet Hershey It's a Small World: All About Midgets
New York Coward-McCann, Inc. (c.1934) First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Fair dj Illustrated by (dj) Sochis 
[good sound copy, moderately shelfworn, some fading to cloth around edges of covers, very slight exposure of boards at bottom corners, dust-soiling to top of text block; jacket is pretty beat-up, with heavy edgewear, various tears and chips along top edge, old tape repair/reinforcement at both ends of spine, 2-inch split at bottom front foldover, etc.]. (B&W photographs) "A vivid, colorful record, telling every detail of the lives of midgets, from birth to death. It discusses the scientific basis for their diminutive stature, and the psychological and psychoanalytical consequences of their strange existence. The authors have spent years in collecting the material presented in this book, the first factual account of these fascinating and extraordinary folk." Illustrated with 32 photographs of little people, a number of them posing with various well-known big people: Charlie Chaplin, Tom Mix, J.P. Morgan, William S. Hart, Primo Carnera, President Warren G. Harding, etc. There are chapters devoted to Tom Thumb and the Singer Midgets, and to discussions of such topics as "Sex and the Midget," "Historical Midgets," and "Midgets in Love."

John Henry: The Rambling Black Ulysses, Bowman, James Cloyd
28 Bowman, James Cloyd John Henry: The Rambling Black Ulysses
Chicago Albert Whitman & Company 1942 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dj Illustrated by Roy La Grone 
[minor wear to book at extremities; jacket a little rubbed/scuffed on front panel, moderate wear and shallow chipping along top edge, uneven fading to rear panel, still colorful and attractive]. (pen & ink drawings, illustrated endpapers) An enhanced retelling of the John Henry legend, "a lusty, robust tale of adventure interwoven with many typical songs and tall tales of the Old South." The author somewhat specialized in this sort of thing, having previously written "epics of American folklore" about Paul Bunyan, Winabojo (an Ojibwe spirit-boy) and Pecos Bill -- the latter the recipient of a Newbery Honor in 1938. The book's illustrator, Roy La Grone, was a faculty member at the Tuskegee Institute.

Death in the Fifth Position [*SIGNED*], Box, Edgar (pseud. for Gore Vidal)
29 Box, Edgar (pseud. for Gore Vidal) Death in the Fifth Position [*SIGNED*]
New York E.P. Dutton & Co. 1952 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Good dj Illustrated by (dj design) Lester Kohs Signed by Author
[moderate wear to top and bottom edges, tiny nick in cloth at bottom of front cover; jacket is edgeworn, with various small chips and tears, larger chip at top left corner of front panel (and extending into top of spine) that has removed quite a bit of the spine title]. SIGNED by the author (as Gore Vidal) on the title page. The first of Vidal's three mystery novels under the Box pseudonym, published in rapid succession in the early 1950s, after which he abandoned the genre (even though the books remained in print in paperback for many years thereafter). Francis Nevins's verdict on the Box mysteries, all of which featured the protagonist Peter Cutler Sargeant III, was that "judged as formal detective novels all three are mediocre, but Vidal's guided tour through the worlds of art, politics, and high society entertains us royally with countless gleefully sardonic jabs at every target in sight." This one is backgrounded in the ballet world. Signed by Author

Dark Hazard, Burnett, W.R.
31 Burnett, W.R. Dark Hazard
New York Harper & Brothers 1933 Later Printing Hardcover (H-H) Very Good+ in Fair dj 
[solid copy, moderate shelfwear to bottom edge, light dust-soiling to top of text block; jacket is edgeworn and rubbed with a little paper loss at spine ends, but the main blemish is a long and ragged closed tear that runs up the front hinge to about the middle of the spine, then turns and extends about 2/3 of the way across the front panel (it's not overly obtrusive, though, being held well in place by the clear jacket protector; it's actually more visible in the scanned image than when you're looking at it with your own eyeballs)]. Tale of a gambler who gets married and tries to reform, but it doesn't take. At the dog-track, he develops an affection for a particular greyhound (the book's title is the dog's name), eventually deciding that he wants to own the dog himself. Filmed twice, under its original title in 1934 (starring Edward G. Robinson, and generally following the plot of the book) and again as WINE, WOMEN AND HORSES in 1937 (with Barton MacLane, and no dog at all!). The middle section of the book is set in "Crescent City," which seems to be Los Angeles, thinly-disguised; I guess that accounts for its inclusion in Baird & Greenwood (no. 359), although they don't bother to actually say so.

Good-bye to the Past: Scenes from the Life of William Meadows, Burnett, W.R.
32 Burnett, W.R. Good-bye to the Past: Scenes from the Life of William Meadows
London William Heinemann Ltd. 1935 1st U.K. edition Hardcover Good 
(no dust jacket) [moderately worn copy, some soiling to covers and spine (more pronounced on latter), spine slightly turned but binding fully intact]. Burnett's seventh published novel, the saga of a self-made man told in reverse chronological order, with the first "scene" taking place in 1929, when the elderly title character is regarded as a bit of an embarrassment by his family. The novel then fleshes out his backstory episode by episode, ending up (or beginning up) eventually in the hardscrabble mining towns of the Arizona Territory of 1873, from which he began his climb to success.

Nobody Lives Forever, Burnett, W.R.
33 Burnett, W.R. Nobody Lives Forever
New York Alfred A. Knopf 1943 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good+ dj Illustrated by (dj design) Gene Allen 
[attractive copy with light shelfwear to bottom edge, vintage price sticker on rear pastedown; jacket shows some wear at spine ends, short closed tear and associated diagonal crease at bottom of rear panel]. "The adventures of a big-time swindler, who starts a carefully organized campaign to swindle a rich, unworldly widow and becomes entangled in a tragic situation impossible to foresee." Basis for the 1946 Warner Bros. film of the same name, starring John Garfield and Geraldine Fitzgerald. The film had a long gestation period: an original Burnett story by that title (although it's not clear that the plot was the same) was purchased by Warner Bros. in August 1941, and its upcoming production was announced to star Humphrey Bogart and Ann Sheridan. According to Robin Smiley ("Firsts," January 2002), Burnett had finished the screenplay for the planned film by mid-1943, well before the book itself hit the shelves, and production was completed on the film in late 1944 by director Jean Negulesco, although "for some unknown reason" (Smiley) the studio didn't deign to release it until late 1946, purportedly after Garfield's star had ascended a bit after the success of MGM's THE POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE. (There may be more to the delay than that, however; some deeper research is clearly called for.)

Vaudeville, Caffin, Caroline (the book), and Marius de Zayas (the pictures)
34 Caffin, Caroline (the book), and Marius de Zayas (the pictures) Vaudeville
New York Mitchell Kennerley 1914 First Edition Hardcover Very Good Illustrated by Marius de Zayas 
(no dust jacket) [good sound copy, moderate wear to extremities, hinges and binding fully intact, gilt lettering still bright on spine and front cover; top edge gilt]. (caricature sketches) A survey of the vaudeville scene of the day, with discussions and caricature sketches of nearly fifty leading performers. Many legendary names are included -- Harry Lauder, Nora Bayes, Ruth St. Denis, Vernon and Irene Castle, Elsie Janis, Houdini, Annette Kellermann, Al Jolson, Will Rogers, Bert Williams, Lillian Russell, etc. -- and just as many others whose one-time renown has faded to nothingness: Laddie Cliff or Ray Cox, anyone? Ching Ling Foo? (Also a few who you might not automatically think of as vaudeville performers, e.g. Ethel Barrymore and Sarah Bernhardt.) There are 49 plates in all: one in color (Bernhardt, the frontispiece), six in tint, and the remainder are black-and-white line drawings in what I would call a kind of proto-Hirschfeld style. The author was the wife of art critic Charles Henry Caffin, and the author of several works of dance criticism; the illustrator was a Mexican-born artist and gallery owner who was influential in New York art circles in the 1910s and 1920s. Very scarce, even lacking (as is this copy) the rare dust jacket. And to save you the trouble: this book can be read online, and you can order a POD reproduction from any number of sources; if you want the real thing, though, it may be a long time before you run across another one. I'm just saying.

35 Calverton, V.F. The Man Inside; being the record of the strange adventures of Allen Steele among the Xulus [*SIGNED*]
New York Charles Scribner's Sons 1936 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dj Illustrated by Charles Alston Signed by Author
[very nice book, clean and tight, thin diagonal scrape mark across top edge of text block (light scrape on red topstain); jacket lightly edgeworn, a couple of tiny closed tears at top of rear panel INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the ffep: "To Upton Sinclair / one of America's / very best / V.F. Calverton." The second (and last) novel by this radical writer and literary critic, who died at the age of 40 in 1940, this is a utopian-fantasy sort of tale about an American scientist who's taken himself off to the deepest jungles of South America in order to conduct hypnosis-based experiments on both animals and people, in an attempt to figure out just what makes people tick and then employ that knowledge for the betterment of mankind -- in other words, with the usual best visionary-scientist intentions, which ultimately lead to the usual unintended consequences. (As the New York Times reviewer noted, the protagonist "is no Dr. Moreau or fanciful magician given to hocus-pocus. His experiment is a preparation for a theory of society; the conclusions he reaches in the jungle he intends for the race.") Calverton (born George Goetz) was the founder of the literary journal "The Modern Quarterly," and was a frequent contributor to such publications as "The Nation" and "The New Republic"; most of his published work was criticism in one form or another.

My Life is in Your Hands, Cantor, Eddie, as told to David Freedman
36 Cantor, Eddie, as told to David Freedman My Life is in Your Hands
New York Blue Ribbon Books 1932 (c.1928) 5th printing Hardcover Very Good in Good dj Illustrated by (dj) Burchell 
[wear to cloth at spine ends, bottom front corner heavily bumped, bottom rear corner slightly bumped, double signature of one-time owner on ffep; jacket rubbed/scuffed, with shallow chipping along top edge, minor paper loss at several corners]. (B&W photographs) The first of Cantor's several memoirs, originally published in 1928, when he was 36 years old and had been in showbiz for over half his life. This edition incorporates "a New Chapter Bringing the Story Up to 1932," although unfortunately it's only nine pages long and contains virtually no information about Cantor's early talking films. (He had made Foreword by Will Rogers, for many years a co-headliner with Cantor in the Ziegfeld Follies. Cantor's as-told-to collaborator, David Freedman, had been a prolific creator of gags and sketches for vaudeville and musical theatre since the mid-1920s, and moved effortlessly into radio (as did Cantor) in the early 1930s. He also worked with Cantor on a number of successful topical humor books during this period, with titles like "Yoo-Hoo Prosperity! The Eddie Cantor Five-year Plan" and "Caught Short! A Saga of Wailing Wall Street," and had a co-screenplay credit on at least one of Cantor's films, PALMY DAYS. I've seen it written (notably on David Freedman's Wikipedia page, but unsourced) that this book was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in Biography for 1928, but I haven't been able to run down independent confirmation. Very uncommon in the dust jacket, in any printing.

D-Day in Paradise, Catto, Max
37 Catto, Max D-Day in Paradise
New York William Morrow & Company 1964 First American Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Near Fine dj 
[a few shallow dents in bottom edges of boards, otherwise a nice clean solid copy with minimal shelfwear; jacket shows some light soiling on the rear panel]. Novel set in the South Pacific, about a Dutch tramp-steamer captain who "rescues" a mysterious prisoner who's being held in chains in the hold of another ship, and gets a lot more than he bargained for. "Red, the prisoner, turns out to be a mercenary soldier, a trouble-maker, a womanizer. But on Christ's Island, with its idyllic Christian community, Red's diabolical genius becomes useful when the island is invaded by civilization in the form of an international task force setting up an airstrip." The jacket blurb notes that "most of [the author's] novels have become motion pictures" -- among them "Mister Moses" and "The Devil at Four O'Clock" -- but this one never made it to the screen. Too bad, too, since the character of Red sounds tailor-made for Robert Mitchum, who had starred in two previous film versions of the writer's work, FIRE DOWN BELOW (1957) and MISTER MOSES (1965). Uncommon in hardcover. (And by the way: the title notwithstanding, the book does not take place during World War II.)

Walk Away from 'Em, Chess, Elliot
38 Chess, Elliot Walk Away from 'Em
New York Coward-McCann, Inc. (c.1941) First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good dj 
[nice bright clean book, just a trace of wear to extremities; jacket shows a little wear and minor paper loss at spine corners, a few other tiny closed tears, 2.5" split at bottom of front foldover (very unobtrusive)]. If there's such a genre as He-Man Fiction, this would be a prime exemplar. It's the story of "Nicky Wayne, army test pilot, trans-Atlantic flyer, owner of a private landing field and of airplanes which he rents out, with or without himself as pilot." And what kind of a man's man would he be without a few dames on the string to make his life "complicated and exciting"? He's got three, in fact: "Jo, his wealthy and beautiful divorced wife; Fran, who loves him, and, fearing she will lose him, is dissipating her beauty and vitality; [and] Toddy Fate, very young, very alluring, very dangerous." (With a name like Toddy Fate, she'd damn well better be young, alluring and dangerous.) A native of El Paso, Texas, the author quit high school and ran off to Canada to join the Royal Flying Corps during World War I, and at the conclusion of the war he spent two years flying with the Kosciuszko Squadron in Poland. Returning to the States, he worked a variety of he-man type odd jobs -- miner, professional wrestler, newspaperman, stunt flyer (just to keep his hand in) -- and along about the late Twenties began selling aviation and western stories to the pulps. This was his first and only novel.
