Item Description: Hollywood, CA, 1937. Unbound. Book Condition: Near Fine. Original Manuscript. Hilton, James. 1900-1954. Author of "Lost Horizon" and "Goodbye Mr. Chips, screenwriter of "Mrs. Miniver." ORIGINAL HEAVILY CORRECTED TYPESCRIPT FOR HIS ESSAY "HORIZONS LOST AND FOUND" [n. p., n. d. but Hollywood, California, 1936]. Five pages total: three pages, the complete essay, accomplished on ordinary yellow typing paper -- typed by Hilton himself and revised extensively in black ink. Two further pages of holograph notes re: this manuscript included, also typed and corrected by Hilton. "Horizons Lost and Found" was published in STAGE: The Magazine of After-Dark Entertainment, a monthly periodical, in February of 1937. We know of no other essay of his that is so representative of Hilton at his most stylishly witty, smoothly conversational, and sophisticated best in private hands; here is an opportunity to own, direct from his files, an artifact which contains his own assessment, or snapshot, of his career at its peak. This essay, unlike almost all of his other prolific reviews, speeches and journalistic concoctions, contains specific, fresh and thoughtful references to Goodbye Mr. Chips, Lost Horizon, film director Frank Capra, his screenplay collaborator Robert Riskin, and Hollywood Life in general. While James Hilton was a generous signer of books, his manuscript material is rarely seen. Ex- James Hilton Estate Sale (Christie's Los Angeles, 1999). The typescript is accompanied by an original essay by Hilton-scholar Kurt Kausler entitled "Center Stage: James Hilton at the Pinnacle" and has been placed in a custom binder along with a cornucopia of hard-to-locate Hilton research material related to "Horizons Lost and Found." Unique. Signed. Bookseller Inventory # 002122

She served in Europe as a combat correspondent during World War I, after which she moved to Los Angeles and was employed by director Lois Weber as an assistant, in which position she received a thorough apprenticeship in the film industry. She began writing scripts and attracted the attention of Mary Pickford. The pair began a long relationship as both friends and artists, with Marion serving as Pickford's official screenwriter. She wrote many of Pickford's most famous and memorable silent films as well as many other of the great successful pictures of the 1920s and 1930s, and has been credited with writing 300 scripts and over 130 produced films. Her influence resurrected the career of Marie Dressler and resulted in her greatest glory, and her scripts for Marion Davies are among the most memorable of that actress' oeuvre. She died in 1973, one of the most respected names in Hollywood history. Dupont. Bookseller Inventory # 9-114-1275096

Item Description: 1933. Unbound. Book Condition: Very Good. Original Manuscript. HILTON, JAMES (1900-1954). FINAL DRAFT MANUSCRIPT OF THE NOVEL LOST HORIZON, an author-annotated 257pp carbon copy typescript. [Woodford Green, Essex, April 1933], 4to (10 x 8 inches), 206 with minor authorial manuscript revisions, corrections, deletions, and insertions in black ink, 61 of which include textual changes present in the work's first edition, the first leaf with the author's initial working title, "Blue Moon," in handwritten block letters and signed ["James Hilton"], followed by a typed but unnumbered half-title and prologue title, all other leaves hand-numbered at the top right corner as follows: 1-128, 128A, 128B, 129-206, 206A, 207-209, 209A, 210-211, 211A, 211B, 211C, 212-236, [a single page designated "237-242"], 243, 243A, [Unnumbered epilogue title page], 244-253. All leaves have four uniform holes in the left margin for insertion in a binder and are age-toned with occasional minor chipping; many have additional blue-pencil and ordinary-pencil corrections in two other distinct, certainly proof-corrector, hands belonging to the editors at William Morrow, Hilton's American publishers. The final three-and-one-half paragraphs of the epilogue (918 words) are not included with this typescript; this missing portion constitutes four typewritten pages at Hilton's rate of roughly 215-230 words per typed page and may represent a final set of changes to the novel's coda delivered later under separate cover. Otherwise the typescript is entirely complete and corresponds to the printed text of the first edition. PROVENANCE: "THE PAPERS OF JAMES HILTON" - CHRISTIE'S LOS ANGELES, 18th NOVEMBER, 1999 (LOT 83). One of the most celebrated and best-loved novels of the 20th century, LOST HORIZON in 1933 introduced "Shangri-La" to the English language and remains the 20th century's most renowned fictional vision of modern utopia. Three known typescript drafts of the novel exist. The first and final draft ribbon copies used by Hilton's London publisher Macmillan are housed at Pennsylvania State University. This, the annotated carbon copy used by Hilton's American publisher Morrow - the one James Hilton retained for his own files and which was sold at his personal estate sale in 1999 - is the final corrected draft currently being offered for sale. There are some minor but fitfully significant textual differences between the first English Edition and the first U.S. edition. This is important because in 1939, LOST HORIZON was published by Pocket Books #1 (the first ever mass-market paperback), with the American text, thus causing the American text to evolve into the standard published version. The adaptation of the 1933 novel into the 1937 Frank Capra directed film starring Ronald Colman further enhanced LOST HORIZON's worldwide fame and the film has long been considered a cinematic classic. It received seven Oscar nominations (including Best Picture) and became the sixth highest grossing film of the 1930s. Its reputation, like that of the novel, continues to grow after almost 75 years. As the first and final Macmillan corrected drafts are locked in the vaults at Pennsylvania State University, this surviving typescript stands alone as ONE OF THE FEW GREAT LITERARY MANUSCRIPTS OF THE 20th CENTURY STILL REMAINING IN PRIVATE HANDS. Each of the 257 leaves has been placed in an archival Mylar sleeve and the entire manuscript is now housed in a custom-designed quarter-morocco slipcase. Signed by Author.
