FROM THE BOOK OF GENESIS: These are the chapters covered by Thomas Mann in JOSEPH THE PROVIDER [cover title]. Thomas Mann. FROM THE BOOK OF GENESIS: These are the chapters covered by Thomas Mann in JOSEPH THE PROVIDER [cover title].
[No place: no publisher, no date]. First edition, as such. Chapters 40-49 from the King James Version of the BOOK OF GENESIS. Presumably published as a reading guide for Mann's book, which retells the story of Joseph from Genesis. No indication of a publisher. "Printed in U.S.A." at bottom of rear cover. One of the 3 entries in OCLC dates this publication 1947, without any explanation (it is in 4 libraries worldwide). The quality of the publication leads us to believe it was issued by a large publishing house -- presumably Knopf, or perhaps the Book-of-the-Month club. Off-white stapled paperwraps printed in deep blue and lettered and ruled in black on front; unpaginated; 6.5 x 9". Front corners nicked, lower rear corner chipped otherwise very good. Scarce.

THE LATE GEORGE APLEY: A Novel in the Form of a Memoir. John P. Marquand. THE LATE GEORGE APLEY: A Novel in the Form of a Memoir.
Boston: Little, Brown and Co. 1937. First edition of his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. INSCRIBED, "For Henry T. Brown Jr with kindest regards, John P. Marquand." Also includes two typed letters to Brown signed by Marquand: one saying he can send the books, and one apologizing for getting his name wrong. Brown, a famous book collector, always went by H. Tatnall Brown. The letters are tipped to the endpaper and verso of half-title page (across from title page). First printing, with "Lovely Pearl" on the first line of page 19, as we think it is in all first printings (changed to "Pretty Pearl" in later printings, as outlined in the current edition of our Collected Books). Faint vertical lines on some pages, as usual for this title, otherwise very good to fine in dust jacket with small professional repair at top of spine and to a few tiny chips. A very nice copy of an unaccountably scarce book, and particularly so with what would appear to be an early inscription, as both letters are dated in April 1939. SCARCE CONTEMPORARILY INSCRIBED COPY.

AN EVENING WITH GROUCHO (2 Record Set): Inscribed to his nurse. Groucho Marx. AN EVENING WITH GROUCHO (2 Record Set): Inscribed to his nurse.
(Beverly Hills: A & M Records Inc. 1972). First edition. A&M SP3515. Double album with single leaf insert. INSCRIBED BY GROUCHO ON FRONT COVER in purple, "To Barbara a good nurse and a nice woman / Groucho." It is likely the inscription is to Barbara Winger Bruner, who worked for Marx in 1977, the final year of his life. (According to a 1983 UPI Bulletin, Bruner testified in a lawsuit filed by Marx's estate against Erin Fleming, the Canadian actress who was Marx's companion, characterizing her actions as "hostile and abusive.") This best-selling album was recorded at Carnegie Hall during Marx's last one-man show. The insert features a pictorial collage and quotes from celebrities including T.S. Eliot -- "Your portrait hangs on my wall next to W.B. Yeats. You are my most coveted pin-up. And I am your utmost admirer." Fine.
