7 Theater Brochure Carlotta Nillson in Leah Kleschna 1913
Unknown 1913 soft cover Good 
Rare four page brochure advertising actress Carlotta Nillson starring in her one and only film, "Leah Kleschna." A few small stains to front and some flat creasing, but overall clean and graphically appealing. Illustrated with stills from film inside. Synopsis on back. Swedish born Nillson was primarily a stage actress, both before and after this film which, despite the success of the play, was a box office bomb in the four-reel screen version. Nillson was one of producer Adolph Zuckor's Famous Players. By the 1920's though she'd fallen out of favor and began taking smaller roles. Eventually she also lost her fortune and by the end of her life was supported by the Actor's Fund.

Schweitzer said then: At this stage we have the choice of two risks. The one lies on continuiong the mad atomic arms-race, with its danger of an avoidable atomic war in the near future. The other in the renunciation of nuclear weapons and in the hope that the Unted States and the Soviet Union, and the people associated with them, will manage to live in peace. The first holds no hope of a prosperous future, the second does. We must risk the second.

Ken Magazine Second Issue April 21, 1938, De Kraif, Paul (editor) et al
11 De Kraif, Paul (editor) et al Ken Magazine Second Issue April 21, 1938
Chicago Ken Inc. 1938 Volume I, No. 2 soft cover Very good condition 
Very handsome copy of the second issueof Ken magazine. I also have the first one and it's on here at this writing. Ernest Hemingway hds been demoted from editorship to contributor which I suspect he could not care less about. His article in this issue is titled, "Dying Well or Badly". The whole issue is pretty much focused on the dangerous atmosphere in Europe. Other articles include: What Price English Justice; The Secret Fuse Under Mexico; Fascism's New World Thrust; Mussolini vs. His Past; Inside the Queerest Shipwreck; Norway, The Next Belgium; and Bidding the Theatre Guild Goodbye. The latter was due to no new hits, one hit in which the Guild had only half ownership; and four flops. Magzine is clean and nice with a little scratching to upper front corner. It measures 10-1/2" x 13-1.2" and has 106 pages.

Ebeltoft, Denmark The Glasmuseum 1996 8789975146 / 9788789975146 1st ed. Hard Cover Fine condition 
This is a lovely exhibit catalog, top drawer in every way. It's hard cover, comes with a see-through dust jacket, includes a text available in Danish, English, and Japanese, AND every beautiful item is given full-color, full-page coverage. The catalog measures 8-1/2" square with 81 pristine pages on coated paper. The jacket shows a 1" tear to bottom back edge -- the only defect. I tried to put in in a mylar cover, but the picture on the cover promptly disappeared due to the white backing of the mylar. So instead I used a thin piece of archival tape on the back to close it. Very elegant catalog.
