(NONE)
Art Studio Life Magazine (July-August 1926) [Cover: Mlle. Ledova]
Wilmington DE: All-Arts Group, Inc, 1926. (Vol. 1, No. 8). Periodical. Illustrated by (cover photo) Jas. W. Pondelicek. [some small tears and chips at edges of covers, but generally a decent copy, covers attached, no loose pages, internally very clean]. (B&W photographs) A curious mix of short articles of vaguely artsy interest, liberally interlaced with photos of naked women in vaguely artsy poses. There are profiles of movie stars (Reginald Denny, Colleen Moore), of course, and short pieces with titles like "The Bathing Suit Idea" and "In the Field of Highway Construction" (I don't quite get the artsy angle on that one, either). A particularly interesting article is "Cartoonists Organize; Professionals and Amateurs Unite in A.A.C.C." -- which is illustrated (facing page) by a photo of "Jewell LaKota ("Miss Cartoons") in a Winsome Pose" (topless, natch). The various models, showgirls, actresses, etc, who grace these pages are generally attractive (albeit in that sometimes chunky Twenties way) and generally about 1/3 undraped; my favorite double-page spread has Mlle. Bennett of the Keith-Albee Vaudeville Circuit opposite a reproduction of a painting of Pope Leo XIII. It's all Art, baby!. Very Good- .

(SHAW, SAM, PHOTOGRAPHS)
Ballantine Books Presents Marilyn Monroe As the Girl; the Candid Picture-Story of the Making of "the Seven Year Itch. " Photographs by Sam Shaw. Foreword by George Axelrod.
New York: Ballantine Books, (c.1955). First Edition. Softcover. [quite a decent copy, a bit of edgewear to the covers; the binding is intact and the spine uncreased, although about 7/16" of the spine surface has peeled off at the base and there's a one-inch closed tear along the bottom rear hinge]. Mass Market PB (B&W photographs) A paperback original, and a wonderful photo-essay by Sam Shaw of the production of Billy Wilder's THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH. As the cover promises, there are "over 100 exclusive photographs," not scene stills but off-camera and candid shots, the great majority of which feature MM herself -- including, of course, one of the most iconic shots in the history of cinema, Marilyn standing above the NYC subway grate. (The shooting of that sequence -- said to have been suggested for the film by Shaw himself -- is documented here in a series of thirteen shots.) Shaw was unquestionably one of the most talented of the many photographers who trained a lens on Marilyn during her meteoric career as the world's #1 sex symbol.. Very Good+ .

Barcelona: El Balneario Casino "San Sebastian"
Barcelona: L. Roisin, Fotografo, [ca. 1928]. Unstated. Softcover. [oblong folio (9-1/2" x 12") with printed card covers; string-bound, split along spine with about 2/3 of the spine covering missing and some additional paper loss extending into the corners of the front cover, but with the double-hole-punched pages still firmly held together by the binding cord; otherwise, the covers are edgeworn and age-browned, but the interior photographic plates are clean and in excellent condition]. (photographs) A photographic souvenir booklet of this Barcelona resort/casino, which opened in 1928. There is a one-page introduction, in Spanish, and the remainder of the book is photographic. Although most of the 14 full-page sepia-toned plates are shots of empty rooms (the main Hall, the Brasserie, the Salon de Fiestas, etc.), meant to show off the opulence of the place, a number are "populated" with bathers, diners, etc, and give a good sense of the resort activity..

 (ARCHITECTURE), The Brickbuilder [Bound Volume, 1903-1904]
(ARCHITECTURE)
The Brickbuilder [Bound Volume, 1903-1904]
Boston: Rogers & Manson, 1903-1904. (Vols. 12-13). Hardcover. (no dust jacket) [solid binding but much external wear, including fraying at several corners, spotting on front cover, etc.; internally quite clean, and firmly bound with the exception of one loose page]. (B&W photographs, plates, diagrams, plans, etc.) Bound volume of 24 monthly issues of this large-format architectural trade periodical (approx. 13" x 10-1/2", containing about 550 pages altogether), "devoted to the interests of architecture in materials of clay." The publication contains a wealth of information regarding architectural and construction practices of the period, primarily in the U.S, although there are a number of features focusing on British architecture, and occasional coverage of notable structures in Spain, Germany and elsewhere. Designs are presented and discussed for nearly every type of private and public building: single-family homes, hotels, department stores, train stations, apartment houses, office buildlings, clubhouses, hospitals, churches (including Westminster Cathedral in London), etc. Many topics are treated in-depth in multi-part articles: "The Planning of Apartment Houses"; "The Business Side of an Architect's Office"; "Hospital Planning" (there's a LOT about hospitals); "Interesting Brick and Terra-Cotta Architecture in St. Louis"; "Brickwork on the Pacific Slope" (mostly dealing with San Francisco -- before the 1906 earthquake, of course); etc. (An article on "Brick Architecture in and about Chicago," in the September 1903 issue, features photos of several Frank Lloyd Wright houses.) As one might imagine, there is a great deal of attention paid to "fireproof" construction, including several articles of the "lessons learned" variety in the wake of various notable urban fires, e.g. the Iroquois Theatre fire in Chicago in December 1903. Especially notable in this regard is an extensive 52-page report on the Great Baltimore Fire of February 1904, issued as a special supplement to the March 1904 issue; it describes and discusses the fire's causes and effects in great detail, and is illustrated with numerous "aftermath" photos of various buildings. (This is considered the third most destructive urban fire in American history, surpassed only by Chicago's 1871 blaze and the San Francisco earthquake and fire in 1906.) Indexes to both volumes are bound in at the front.. Good .

Brighter the Light, Deeper the Shadow: Voices from the Writing Workshops of Bruce Gelfand
Santa Monica CA: Gelfand Workshops, (c.2002). First Edition. Hardcover. Illustrated by (dj design) Kathleen Hein. [nice tight clean copy, no discernible wear, appears unread; jacket shows minor surface wear, mostly to rear panel]. This book "is a group of writers giving themselves permission. To have a voice. To use it. However much the content or craft may vary, however cacophonous the chorus or dissonant the prayer -- make no mistake: this is a book of voices singing their hearts out. If you listen closely you can hear whatever God is seeping through the words." A compilation of stories, poems, and various short pieces from the writing workshops of a guy who uses "cacophonous" and "dissonant" in the same sentence.

Cab Calloway's Jive Jubilee of Songs; Includes Cab Calloway's Original Jive Dictionary
New York: Mills Music, Inc, (c.1942). Unstated edition. Stapled wraps. [minor wear along spine, slight curling at leading corners]. Collection of music and lyrics for 18 of Calloway's hit songs, including most of the tunes with which his name is usually associated: "Minnie the Moocher," "St. James Infirmary," "I'll Be Glad When You're Dead, You Rascal, You," "The Scat Song," etc. "Cab Calloway's Jive Dictionary," which was also published in a small pocket-size booklet, is here presented entirely on the inside rear cover, with a somewhat different selection of terms and definitions than in some of the smaller-format printings I've seen. (There are about 150 entries here, compared with about 200 in the other formats.) Sample entries in this compendium of etymological sublimity include: "GOT YOUR BOOTS ON -- you know what it is all about, you are wise"; "LAY YOUR RACKET -- To jive, to sell an idea"; "NEIGHO POPS" -- Nothing doing, pal"; "OFF TIME JIVE -- A sorry excuse, saying the wrong thing." This'll put you in the groove, baby! [This item is featured in ReadInk's E-Catalog 3.1, which can be perused at our website, which you'll have to figure out how to find yourself.

Cinema [Magazine] (October-November 1964) [Cover: Jackie Lane]
Northridge CA: Spectator International, 1964. (Vol. 2, No. 3). Periodical. [some rubbing to covers, minor edgewear]. (B&W photographs) A real potpourri of an issue, reflecting (somewhat haphazardly) the editor's stated ambition to put out "the most current, stylish and valid magazine on movies in the world." Included here: a first-hand report (by editor Silke) of the production of Sam Peckinpah's MAJOR DUNDEE; a "photographic reminiscence" of Gary Cooper, accompanied by an article considering whether he was a great actor or a great star personality (verdict: both); a two-page illustrated profile of actress Jackie Lane (the cover girl), "a modern vamp" then appearing in ALI BABA AND THE FORTY THIEVES; an interview with director Fred Zinnemann, about his new film BEHOLD A PALE HORSE; a rather odd photo feature entitled "You Are Cordially Invited To Attend An Orgy," by Peggy Moffitt, illustrated entirely with shots of silent-era stars such as Rudolph Valentino and Betty Blythe in various exotic get-ups. There are several pages of various news bits relating to international cinema (mostly, it seems, as an excuse to a flaunt a little 60s-style cheesecake), and a number of film reviews, including a longish one of Alfred Hitchcock's MARNIE by Peter Bogdanovich. [For collector-completists, please note that this is the *real* Volume 2, Number 3; the next issue had the same designation, in error, on its front cover.]. Very Good+ .

Cinema [Magazine] [1962] [First Issue]
Hollywood CA: James R. Silke, [1962]. (Vol. 1, No. 1). Periodical. [some scuffing/rubbing to covers, moderate wear along spine, very slight damage at very top of spine; still a decent, clean copy]. (B&W photographs, graphics) The debut issue of what eventually (after some growing pains and various format changes) became one of the leading American critical film journals of its day, producing a total of 36 issues before petering out in the mid-1970s. The first issue looks more than a bit tentative, however; an editorial note describes it as "a graphic magazine of information on the diverse world of film entertainment," but its graphic design overwhelms its very thin editorial content. The features of this issue, such as they are, are primarily pictorial: "On Location with LAWRENCE OF ARABIA"; "The Pagan Bardot," a rather silly feature with drawings (by Guy Deel) of Brigitte Bardot costumed (or not) as various legendary ladies (Cleopatra, Theodora, Venus, etc.); a 7-page spread on EL CID; a two-page spread about John Cassavetes, with a few pithy quotes but not much else; a pictorial feature on the women characters' costumes in KING OF KINGS; brief "previews" of 16 upcoming releases. It's worth mentioning that noted photographer William Claxton is credited on the masthead as "Feature Photographer," although the magazine contains only one photograph (a sort of artsy shot of Cassavetes) attributed to him..

 (CONGRESSIONAL RECORD), Complete Texts of the Kennedy-Nixon Debates
(CONGRESSIONAL RECORD)
Complete Texts of the Kennedy-Nixon Debates
Washington DC: Congressional Quarterly Inc, 1960. Stapled wraps. [light handling wear only]. This is an assemblage, I guess you'd call it, of the relevant pages from four issues of Congressional Quarterly, in which were printed the full transcripts of the four debates between Presidential candidates John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon, held on September 26, October 7, October 13, and October 21, 1960. The four sections have been neatly stapled together, and cumulatively present 28 double-columned pages of text (with a large red X drawn across the extra pages on which no debate text appears). These were, of course, "historic" events in every sense of the word -- the first televised Presidential debates, and considered a landmark of politics in the era of television -- but what's most striking is how they so little resemble what are laughingly called "Presidential debates" today. Whatever your opinion might be of either JFK or Nixon, to read these transcripts is to encounter thoughtful, articulate men, who express their ideas and positions in complete, coherent sentences -- in an atmosphere as different from the entertainment/reality-show/sporting-event bloviation we're subjected to these days as can possibly be imagined..

 [ROBINSON, CASEY] (BERNARD F. DICK, ED.), Dark Victory
[ROBINSON, CASEY] (BERNARD F. DICK, ED.)
Dark Victory
Madison: University of Wisconsin Press, 1981. First Edition. Hardcover. [minor bumping in vicinity of spine ends, otherwise a tight clean copy with minimal wear; jacket moderately edgeworn, small tear and a bit of paper loss at top of spine, soiling to rear panel]. (Wisconsin/Warner Bros. Screenplay series) Series (B&W photographs) Typically excellent entry in this screenplay series, with an erudite introduction by historian Bernard F. Dick, discussing the "factual, anecdotal and mythical" history of this classic film. In addition to the screenplay itself (annotated by the editor), the volume includes a healthy selection of frame blow-ups from the film. The only sour note is that this volume exhibits what I consider to be a major problem with this series, namely its failure to give the names of the actual SCREENWRITERS the prominence they deserve: the writers' names are on neither the books' covers nor their title pages, but can only be found on the first page of the script itself. For shame.. Near Fine in Very Good dj .
