The Time Now, The Place Spain
4 Hemingway, Ernest The Time Now, The Place Spain" in Ken Magazine Vol 1 No 1 April 7, 1938
Chicago Ken, Inc. 1938 Soft cover Good Magazine 4to - over 9 - 12 
Chicago: Ken, Inc. Published April 7th, 1938. Magazine titled, "The Coming Moroccan Revolt". Measures 13-1/2" tall x 10-5/8" wide. 138 pp. with lots of articles, ads, illustrations and photos. Contains the Hemingway article, "The Time Now, The Place Spain" (Hanneman #C 283). Hemingway argues that a world war can be averted if Mussolini and Fascism are beaten in Spain. This is the first of 13 articles and one short story that Hem wrote for Ken. The boxed notice was taken directly from a telegram which Hemingway sent to Arnold Gingrich, the editor - the only change was the insertion of the words "contracted and" in the second sentence. This is the first and only appearance of this article, including other topics highlighted by Ken (anti-nazi, anti-fascist, etc). Other highlights of this issue include a George Petty Old Gold Cigarette 'Petty Pinup illustration', as well as an important collection of photos (including 'Migrant Mother' Florence Owens Thompson) documenting the tough economic times (dust bowl era) by Dorthea Lange, an important photojournalist. Magazine in good condition with flaws noted: Bottom and top corners have faint creases; thumb creases toward center front edge; small rubbing to front cover; spine staples tight, although pages 69-72 have come loose from staples and is laid-in. Also, on page 17-18, a small illustration has been cut out from the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad advertisement - this removal also affects a Jameson Irish Whiskey advertisement (page 17).

[Mark Swain]
14 Twain, Mark [Mark Swain] "Forty-three Days in an Open Boat" Harper's Monthly Magazine Dec. 1866 Vol 34
New York Harper's Monthly Magazine 1866 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good Magazine 4to - over 9 - 12 
Forty-three Days in an Open Boat, by Mark Swain (pp. 104-113) (Mark Twain's first appearance in print in a national magazine): New York: Harper & Brothers, 1866. Volume #34, Issues #199 - 204. 6-month bound magazine with December, 1866 - May, 1867, with added title and contents pages in front, and original wraps & ads removed. Quarter brown leather spine with four raised bands and gilt decoration, with dark hardcover boards. Measures 6-1/2" x 9-3/4" tall. 816 pp. Illustrated with 211named black/white illustrations, with titles in front contents section. Front index includes all titles and authors. Notable for containing Mark Twain's first appearance in print in a national magazine, predating his first book. Published anonymously in the individual issues, the story is attributed in the table of contents in the bound volumes to "Mark Swain," as Twain had yet to gain national recognition, though his "jumping frog" story was just beginning to spread in newspapers throughout America. A description of the events by Twain himself, taken from 'My Debut as a Literary Person': "This was in 1866. I prepared my contribution, and then looked around for the best magazine to go up to glory in. I selected the most important one in New York. The contribution was accepted. I signed it 'MARK TWAIN;' for that name had some currency on the Pacific coast, and it was my idea to spread it all over the world, now, at this one jump. The article appeared in the December number, and I sat up a month waiting for the January number; for that one would contain the year's list of contributors, my name would be in it, and I should be famous and could give the banquet I was meditating. I did not give the banquet. I had not written the 'MARK TWAIN' distinctly; it was a fresh name to Eastern printers, and they put it 'Mike Swain' or 'MacSwain,' I do not remember which. At any rate, I was not celebrated and I did not give the banquet. I was a Literary Person, but that was all--a buried one; buried alive." This volume also contains the original (and first story) about 'Wild Bill Hickok', written by Colonel George Ward Nichols, after a 'quick draw' duel between Hickok and Davis Tutt, Jr. in Springfield, Missouri on July 21, 1865. The article recounts the hundreds of men Hickok (James Butler Hickok) personally killed, and other exaggerated exploits. Overall, good condition, with flaws noted: Leather spine binding worn at edges & head and tail. Outer spine edges cracked on head of spine, 2-1/2" and 1-3/4" respectively; lower spine cracked at outer edge 2" length. Front inner gutter starting, responding to above mentioned cracks. Corners and edges bumped and rubbed; fore edge shows a few bump indentations. Outer cloth covers show light wear; rear top corner shows a corner of moisture damage, 'wrinkling' the cloth (although entire covers feel firm and tight). Marbled endpapers have light age wear to their glossy appearance. Internally, foxed endpapers and random locations within text. Notable 'spots' around Wild Bill article (see picture). Title page torn and creased, almost 3/4 way thru (blank back side could easily be repaired with japan paper method. Otherwise internally clean and tight binding. Not ex-library. No other interior marks, writing, highlighting, or major things to note. Bright pages and crisp/clean illustrations throughout.
