        Lawyer Addressing the Bench with Portrait of Lincoln

      New York: Circa 1940s. Oil on canvas. Signed lower right. 25 x 30 inches. The legal name of Jack Levitz was likely Ebbitt Abraham Levitz, born September 27, 1896 in Vilna, also known as the Jerusalem of Lithuania. There was civil unrest in Vilna in 1897 due to agitation for worker's rights by the General Jewish Workers Union, also known as the bund. It is likely that Levitz immigrated to the United States with his family around the end of the nineteenth century. Levitz became friends with William Saroyan, the author of many children's books. In 1941 Saroyan wrote a profile of Levitz for Don Freeman's Newsstand journal. He describes Levitz as "roly-poly" with a cigar in his mouth. According to Saroyan who got it from Levitz, Levitz could not recall his original first name and simply made up the name "Ebbet." Levitz was prolific and tossed off drawings and casual paintings with ease which he sold for a few dollars. According to Saroyan, "The paintings he really paints... are usually great." Ebbitt Abraham [Jack] Levitz died in December, 1964 at the age of 68.

"These poems are taken from a Psalter written by an English scribe, most likely in one of the Midland counties, early in the 13th century." William Morris's printed illuminated transcription of this early thirteenth-century English Psalter, written as poems of praise to St. Mary the Virgin, includes four pages from Luke's Gospel and concludes with a Te Deum. Today the original Psalter, which Morris once owned, is known as the Reading Abbey Psalter and is in the Pierpont Morgan Library. "[A]fter the book was issued, the Rev. E.S. Dewick pointed out that the poems had already been printed at Tegernsee in 1579, in a 16mo volume in which they are ascribed to Stephen Langton. A note to this effect was printed in Chaucer type in December 1896 and distributed to the subscribers," (lacking in this edition). Light wear and soiling to boards, with small water-stain to front top right board. Internally outstanding. No ownership marks, and free from the usual spotting and foxing. Very clean.

        Three albumen paper photographs (each approximately 150 x 200 mm, on original cardboard mounts, 240 x 300 mm)

      - They are captioned in ink on the verso of each mount 'Palmerston, Port Darwin, NT, destroyed by Tornado, December, 1896', along with the initials FEB. Not unnatually, we thought this was the photographer, until we discovered his initials are FAKB! Further specific details are pencilled onto the verso of each mount, namely 'P.R. Allen's Store', 'Rundle's Store', and 'Bennett Street'. Interestingly, the well-exposed interior of Allen's store shows another photographer at work! The mounts are a little marked and chipped, one print is a little weak on contrast, but overall the condition is very good. Florenz August Karl Bleeser (1871-1942) was born in Woodside, South Australia. He became an assistant postmaster in Darwin, where he lived from 1889 until his death. A large collection of his glass negatives in the National Library of Australia includes variant examples of two of these prints (NLA PIC/9981/63 and 65).

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1896 - 1896 Wisden Rebound with Covers Rebound Hardback?

      1896. Hi, This is a rebound 1896 Wisden , it is rebound with covers. It could be one of the most expensive mistakes a collector has made as not only has it the original covers, it also has the yellow pastedowns of an original hardback and I have check them vs mine and they are the same pages. I am guessing the owner has all their books rebound the same as we have a similar 1894/5. This Wisden is in Very Good condition. The boards are very eligant in a dark reddy colour with corners ans spine cloth in a very nice material, not sure if it is leather but very pleasing on the eye. Very nice covers and clean pages and a great photo of WG. Hardly any spotting, a very nice and interesting Wisden.
