He later made the first ascent of Mumm Peak, in the Canadian Rockies, and became a member of the American Alpine Club. He is most noted for his compilation of the three-volume ‘Alpine Club Register’. This book is beautifully illustrated with the smaller photos being pasted in. A classic. Neate 179. Ladd, William S., MD.

Saskatchewan, Canada, (1923, with Conrad Kain), attempted Mt. Fairweather (1926) and was a member of the first ascent team in 1931, and climbed in the Alps (1928). Ladd oversaw the participation and the founding of the Union International des Associations d’Alpinism (UIAA) and gave the gift of the AAC’s first clubhouse, an old fire station located on the upper East side of Manhattan. During his term the first American Alpine Journal was published (1929). This book is from the collection of the American Alpine Club Library.

        LAMPY'S EARLY DAYS. BY AN OLD LAMPOONER

      Cambridge: The Harvard Lampoon Society, 1909. First Edition. Hardcover. Professionally rebacked with a new spine, mild wear to corners. Very Good. Early gilt-decorated and lettered full dark burgundy morocco leather (6-1/4" x 9-3/8") retaining the original purple wraps within; [viii], 72 pages. Issued in an edition of 500 copies, this illustrated history of the early days of the Harvard Lampoon Society by one of its founders is very scarce. This copy is especially interesting as it belonged to John Reed and is SIGNED by him on the front endpaper: "John S. Reed '10 Ibis/'In medio tutissimus ibis/A sacred oath I swear to Heaven and him/Confirming it with Ibis holy name'/-Tamburlaine." Reed, who graduated from Harvard in 1910, served as president of the Harvard Lampoon. Under his leadership the publication evolved from collegiate humor to highly literate, and often scathing, social commentary. Perhaps the best known left-wing American journalist of the twentieth century; Reed was portrayed by Warren Beatty in the film REDS, nominated for twelve Academy Awards and winner of three, which centered on Reed's life, notably his romance with Louise Bryant, played by Diane Keaton, and his early death at 33 in Moscow. Reed's best known book, TEN DAYS THAT SHOOK THE WORLD, is Reed's firsthand account of the October Revolution in Russia in 1917.

        Autograph letter signed "Reger," postmarked June 27, [?]1911

      1 page. Octavo. A "Kartenbrief" to "Kurdirektor von Beckerath" in Bad Pyrmont. With integral address leaf. Reger agrees to programs, "including the one by Frau Dr. Fischer," and goes on to discuss rehearsals of various pieces including his Hiller Variations and Violin Concerto on July 19th and the 5th Brandenburg Concerto on July 20th. . "[Reger's] musical style, which combines a chromatic harmonic language with Baroque and Classical formal procedures, situates him as both a successor to late 19th-century Romanticism and a forerunner of early 20th-century modernism..."Reger met the 16-year-old violinist Adolf Busch at the Cologne Conservatory in 1909. "Two years later, Reger and Busch gave their first public recital together at a Bach-Reger Festival (which also included a performance of the Violin Concerto) in Bad Pyrmont..." "... Although Reger continued to produce chamber music in considerable quantities, his Leipzig years are most notable for his maturation as an orchestral composer... The Hiller Variations (1907) were followed by the Violin Concerto (1907–8) and the Symphonischer Prolog zu einer Tragödie (1908)... Reger’s orchestral output gradually acquired softer, more Romantic contours. This was especially true after 1911 when Reger became director of the orchestra of the ducal court of Saxe-Meiningen in a line of succession that included Bülow and Richard Strauss." John Williamson in Grove onlineAn interesting letter mentioning two of Reger's own works together with one of Bach's (one of his greatest influences), in rehearsal presumably for a performance at the Bach-Reger festival with Busch mentioned above.

Pictorial title page and colophon, decorated copyright page, and 19 illustrations by Robert Wilson Hyde, all printed in color and gold.

Two of these collaborations, coincidentally, were guest books: in the present example, the well-known children's tale appears in a strip along the upper margin of the page, with space below for guests at a wedding to sign their names. There are no known copies of this title apart from the present example. This album was not used. Bound in original raw silk with title stamped in gilt on upper cover. Slight fraying to corners, covers very slightly bowed, else a fine copy of a rare example of California Arts and Crafts book work.
