Five Star Final. A Melodrama in Three Acts. Preface by Herbert Bayard Swope

By Weitzenkorn, Louis, playwright. Herbert Bayard Swope, introduction

New York: Samuel French, 1931. Hardcover. [x], 165p., titlepage printed in two colors, paperstock is nice soft alkaline stuff with no toning, hardbound first edition in openweave black cloth titled white, panelled in blind, top edge tinted green. Pleasant book production with sound hinges and no ownership or institutional marks, but badly sunned along spine; sunlight has wiped out color and titling from the spine panel and part of the top tint, and it is now simply grey with traces of eroded lettering. As is, a pleasant book to hold that will not beautify a bookshelf.

Hawaii as the Camera Sees It. 5th Edition

Honolulu: Honolulu Star-Bulletin / Hawaii Tourist Bureau, 1936. Magazine. Unpaginated, about 100p., softbound tourist- and investment-bait newsmagazine-style in 12.5x10 inch color wraps. Profuse captioned b&w photoreproductions on semi-coated paperstock, brief introductory text. A complete but somewhat damaged copy: both covers seriously silverfished with a number of small marginal perforations to front cover; just inside find a lower-margin hole that penetrates a half-dozen margins before it peters out, here the silverfish may have been riding a bookworm. Else good, with a lot of period camerawork rather indifferently reproduced, and the pleasant cover illustration not too badly damaged. Dated from census stats quoted in the introduction. The publishers ascribed are our guesswork per photo-credits.

Some Elements of the American Character. An Oration Delivered at Faneuil Hall, July 4, 1946

By Kennedy, John F.

Pensacola FL: King & Queen Press, 1976. Paperback. First separate publication. Unpaginated preliminary Preface, 17p., letterpress on laidlined paperstock with rubricated titlepage, a softbound pamphlet in 6.5x5 inch dark blue wraps with printed paper label (also rubricated). Fine-presswork on the cheap; not sewn but glued to wrapper, first half adhered to front cover verso, other to back cover, with a break at pp.4/5 due to this time-saving technique, nonetheless quite attractive. A fine undamaged unmarked copy, one of a run limited to 350 copies; a merely ephemeral piece, but quite early for a JFK collectable, only Why England Slept and As We Remember Joe (1945) precede it. K & Q Press was founded in 1962 by James A. Servies (1925-2014) and wife Lana D., who survives him. The occasion for this speech is obscure, reprinter/editors say "very little attention was given to [it] by Boston newspapers of the day" and that "no mention of the speech can be found in any of the numerous books about JFK." Well, after all-- it is a stunningly lame effort! filled with patriotic boilerplate; better forgotten. Nor was John yet running for office. He had the year before undertaken a memorial volume, "As We Remember Joe," a plausibly exhausting ordeal, he was presumably still recuperating from his PT 109 shipwreck and swim, and had numerous back operations to look forward to.
