 CALDWELL, ERSKINE, Original press photo showing Erskine Caldwell and actor Henry Hull.
CALDWELL, ERSKINE
Original press photo showing Erskine Caldwell and actor Henry Hull.
Original photo with stamp ('OCT 24 1935') and a captioned ticket pasted on verso. 21,7 x 16,7 cm. Creased. Glue mark from a ticket partly on front margin. 'Chicago, Ill. - Henry Hull - who has the principal role in "Tobacco Road", which was closed by Mayor Edw. J. Kelly, of Chicago, who termed it obscene and sordid, is pictured with the author, Erskine Caldwell. It is expected that a legal battle will be waged to defend the play.' A strange picture: on stage, a cheerful grinning Hull, with the outfit of a dirty farmer, scoops water from a wooden bucket and hands it to Caldwell who is well-dressed, smoking a cigarette, and broadly smiling to the camera.

MAARTENS, MAARTEN
Autograph Letter Signed to publisher Funk & Wagnalls in London, dated '11-11-'13 (De Zonheuvel, Doorn) Holland'.
Letter in English with printed letterhead 'De Zonheuvel, Doorn.', signed 'Maarten Maartens', heavily underscored. 4 p. 17,7 x 11,2 cm. 17 lines. Pin holes where a visiting card may have been pinned to the letter. The letter exhibits amazement of a book that was sent by publisher Funk & Wagnalls to Josua van der Poorten Schwartz, better known as novelist Maarten Maartens: 'On my return, this day, from a prolonged absence abroad, I find the book you have kindly sent me. I stand before it, spellbound, as I once stood before the Great Pyramid'. This is probably about the first edition of Funk & Wagnalls Standard Encyclopedia. There are more quaintly reverent sentences in the letter: 'Your book looks a large one. But the moment we realize in it the Liebig of men's intellect since Adam, how compactly reasonable in size it appears!' No wonder the clerk at Funk & Wagnalls wrote in pencil: 'Please make 3 copies for Prof Hopkins', possibly to use citations for advertising.

MAARTENS, MAARTEN
Autograph Letter Signed and dated '14-X-'06 [De Zonheuvel, Doorn.] Holland'.
Letter in English on mourning paper with printed letterhead 'De Zonheuvel, Doorn.', signed '"Maarten Maartens"'. Five pages. 17,8 x 11,3 cm. 53 lines. Some traces of glue. Pin holes where a visiting card may have been pinned to the letter. Maarten Maartens is the pseudonym of J. van der Poorten Schwartz (1858-1915), a Dutch author who wrote in English. Extensive letter to a 'Dear Sir' in Pittsburgh who had given a lecture and invited him for a stay. Maartens writes he is 'just back from the Aberdeen festivities, where I met Mr. Carnegie who renewed his invitation to my daughter'. He would like to come, but because of his bad health is reluctant to take a fast boat to the USA. 'I am a disgraceful sailor, but America is worth even that - can any man say more?' He wonders if he can take his 18-year old daughter along. Very friendly letter by a bit of a pedant who flaunts the name of his famous friends Andrew Carnegie and Admiral F.E. Chadwick and asks the benevolence of the gods in Latin ('Dii, favete!') while pondering a tour through Northern America.
