Title: The Fivefold Screen
Author: William Plomer
Publisher: Coward McCann Inc.
Printing Year: 1932 signed limited edition

Condition/Details: Bound in black cloth, this vintage volume is a scarce signed copy of Plomer's first collection of published poetry. This limited edition is number 390 of 450.

William Charles Franklyn Plomer (19031973) was a South African author, known as a novelist, poet and literary editor. He was educated mostly in the United Kingdom. Plomer edited several of Ian Fleming's James Bond novels in the 1950s and 60s. He became famous in South Africa with his first novel, Turbott Wolfe, which had inter-racial love and marriage as a theme. He was co-founder of the short-lived literary magazine Voorslag ("Whiplash") with two other South African rebels, Roy Campbell and Laurens van der Post; it promoted a racially equal South Africa. The Fivefold Screen, his first collection of verse, contained poems whose visual clarity, musical resonance, and atmospheric intensity he never recaptured, perhaps because after 1932 his memories of his native land lost their freshness and poignancy.

Title/Description: Custom 8x10" Pin Hole Camera

Condition/Details: This simply-designed, well-constructed custom 8x10" pinhole camera, appears based on a design by The Lensless Company. The back is fitted with a back that operates as both an in-camera holder and as a contact-print frame; there is no ground glass, but none is needed as the pinhole, which is set in a brass cup, measures 7.25"" focal length and has a very large circle of coverage. The previous owner's experience was using Kodabromide f3 for 5', in bright winter sunlight.

A pinhole camera is a simple box camera arrangement based on the "philosophical toy"/artist's aid known as a Camera Obscura, using a very small aperture in place of an optical lens. Light from a scene passes through the tiny pinhole aperture and projects an inverted image on the opposite side of the box. The human eye operates in a similar fashion, but the brain turns the image right-side-up automatically. Up to a certain point, the smaller the hole, the sharper the image, but the dimmer the projected image. (courtesy of Wikipedia)

Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $19.50

This lot features a Simplex E-7 manufactured by the International Projector Corporation. When in operation, this piece connected to several other parts found in today's auction, including motors, sound mechanisms, lamps and more, to project films in some of the earliest days of movie theaters.

The next year, Precision Machine Company was founded to manufacture the Simplex, with the first models appearing this year. Over the years, Simplex's popularity increased, and in 1925 International Projector Company was founded, merging Precision Machine Company, Nicholas Power Company and the Acme Motion Picture Projector Company. The company continued to grow with the film industry, operating under several other names, most recently as part of Strong International. (courtesy of www.film-tech.com)
