        [Photo Album]: African-American Family

      1910 - 1960. Oblong quarto measuring 8.5" x 12". Brown leather over paper boards with "photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 59 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring 1.5" x 1.5" to 6.5" x 8.5" without captions. Near fine photo album with edgewear with very good photographs with some creasing and occasional tape repairs.An African-American family photo album with photographs spanning from about 1910 to the 1960. From the very few captions it can be presumed that the family was from the New Jersey area. The photographs are not in chronological order and begin with photos that appear to be from the late 1950s of cars and children playing. The older photos are mostly portraits of family members posing in nice clothes. One page shows a collection of eight single photos cut from a photo strip of smiling men and women and one child. There are also men in military uniform on an army base which appear to be from the Vietnam-era. On 6.5" x 8.5" photograph shows a group of men who appear to be part of a musical group as they are posed in a way that appears to be more professional. Another 6" x 8" photo shows a group of school children in roughly 1920 posing as a group with Cape May, New Jersey written in a corner. Additionally laid in is a professional photograph of a man from the family graduating from High School.A modest but nice collection of an African-American family over fifty years. .

        John Martin's Letters to You - No. 9 and 10

      New York: John Martin's House, 1910 and 1911. New York: John Martin's House. 1910 and 1911. Two early Boy Scout--related letters from the Letters from John Martin series of subscription correspondence for boys. Octavos. Each 8pp. Stapled self-wrappers. Fine. Morgan Shepard, a contributor to St. Nicholas, began producing letters of illustrated tales for children in 1908 that he would personalize to each subscriber. Each letter was hand-personalized to subscribers and describes some fantastic journey or adventure involving explorers, hunters, knights, or animals, typically illustrated throughout. These issues, letters number nine (1910) and 10 (1911), are particularly notable because each is dedicated to the then nascent Boy Scouts of America with several drawings of Scouts in uniforms, their emblem, and the Boy Scout sign, as well as the Boy Scout Oath, ways to tie various types of knots, identify animal tracks, and with a facsimile copy of the letter sent to John Martin by Ernest Seton, the first Chief Scout of the Boy Scouts, in the founding year of the organization. OCLC locates no copies of this subscribers' letter series. .

        George Gershwin childhood owned and signed music theory book relating to musical phrasing and rhythm

      n.p., Circa 1910-1937. 5.625" x 8.25". "Hardcover book, Musical Form by Ebenezer Prout (Augener Ltd., London, 1893), signed "George Gershwin" in confident block letters in black ink on front end paper. "H", "i", and "n" of Gershwin slightly smeared and with faint ghost impression of signature on facing page. Maroon book covers with gilt embossed spine, 257 pages, in fine to very fine condition, 5.625" x 8.25". Preface page pencil inscribed with University of Bridgeport, CT library accession number, donor name "Godowsky", and donation date "2/14/[19]78" on cover page. George Gershwin (1898-1937) dropped out of high school to pursue his musical career, working as a demonstration pianist for a Detroit-based piano roll publishing firm at age 15. He began arranging and composing while still a teenager. Gershwin collaborated with songwriters, lyricists and his older brother Ira (1896-1983) to compose popular Broadway musicals such as Lady, Be Good (1924), and many others. During the remainder of his short career, Gershwin composed classical, musical, and "folk opera" oeuvres, including Rhapsody in Blue (1924), An American in Paris (1928), Porgy and Bess (1935), and Hollywood music scores.Although his interest in music started later than many other musical protégés, Gershwin made up for lost time. He received formal training from professional pianists, regularly attended concerts, practiced replicating complicated pieces entirely by ear, and studied educational resources like this book. Gershwin's work was influenced by major turn-of-the-century French and Russian composers Claude Debussy, Maurice Ravel, Igor Stravinsky, and Dmitri Shostakovich. In the mid-1920s, Gershwin traveled to Europe with the intent to study intensively under more well-established musicians, but on several occasions, he was pointedly turned away. Both Ravel and Schoenberg purportedly told Gershwin that while he would only be a poor imitator of their work, he could become "a good Gershwin". Ultimately, Gershwin did forge his own distinct musical language. Gershwin once said, "true music must reflect the thought and aspirations of the people and the time. My people are Americans. My time is today."Books like this one in George Gershwin's personal library provide overviews of music theory and music history. Gershwin might have consulted this book to learn more about musical phrasing and rhythm, as its contents explore musical motives, modulations, and forms. There are no annotations or margin markings throughout the text to indicate areas of special interest, but one can guess Gershwin might have lingered on "Chapter VIII: Irregular and Complex Rhythms".Provenance: George Gershwin's sister Frances Gershwin Godowsky (1906-1999) donated this book to the Special Collections at the library of the University of Bridgeport (CT) in the winter of 1978.he printed handwriting has been verified and matched with other known examples, a sample of which can be provided."

      London: Mills & Boon, Limited, [1910]..

First edition, first issue with the earliest publisher's catalogue. A collection of thirteen short stories, many weird and fantastic, including "Bugs and Other Things," in which insects seek vengeance against a man who burned an "ant city." "The Frozen Man" is a "wonderful piece of weird imagination, combining as it does the descriptions of a first class practitioner of supernatural fiction with something of Jack London's talent for stories of the wilderness." - Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy Volume III, p. 81. Locke notes that Trevena is "one of the better writers of his day." Ernest George Henham (b. 1870), a writer of regionalist fiction, published nineteen novels, most with West Country settings. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978), Day (1963) or Reginald (1979; 1992). Cloth a bit soiled, a very good copy. A very scarce book. (#156627)
