The ill-fated lovers Frankie and Johnny were already legends by 1930, the year of this illustrated drama's publication. The unique interpretation is a collaboration between John Huston, the future director of The Maltese Falcon and other film classics, and Miguel Covarrubias, an influential painter and caricaturist. Huston, who reputedly interviewed a neighbor of the real-life Frankie and Johnny, was inspired to adapt the tale of love gone wrong for a puppet show for which George Gershwin supplied musical accompaniment. In addition to Huston's script and distinctive images by Covarrubias, this edition features the Saint Louis Version of the folktale, regarded as the most authentic version, as well as 20 variations on the story and song

Born to be by Taylor Gordon( Book )

6 editions published between 1929 and 1975 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Famous in the 1920s as a singer of Negro spirituals, Taylor Gordon was born into the only black family living in White Sulphur Springs, Montana. His rough-and-ready upbringing in that mining boom town is warmly remembered in Born to Be. Gordon describes with panache his early years in the Old West, where he was not aware of racial prejudice. As a boy he carried messages from civic leaders to the town madam, served drinks to the "sports," and scurried up plenty of excitement. The book shows him leaving Montana for the East, experiencing the arrows of bigotry, chauffeuring for circus impresario John Ringling, and forging a singing career that won him a place in the Harlem Renaissance and an appointment with British royalty. Gordon finally returned to White Sulphur Springs after an extraordinary career riddled with misfortune. But he was still flourishing at the age of thirty-six, when the autobiographical Born to Be ends
The history of the Conquest of Mexico by William Hickling Prescott( Book )

2 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The History of the Conquest of Mexico is William Prescott's epic account of Cortes's subjugation of the Aztec people, one that endures as a landmark work of nineteenth-century historiography and dramatic storytelling. Published in ten languages and republished at least two hundred times since its first publication in 1843, it presents a compelling view of the clash of civilizations that reverberates in Latin America to this day. The Conquest of Mexico, judged Prescott's biographer Harry Thurston Peck, is "one of the most brilliant examples which the English language possesses of literary art applied to historical narration," and literary critic Donald A. Ringe calls it "that rare type of book which satisfies fully the demands of both history and art.""--Jacket
