        The Tale of Timmy Tiptoes

      London and New York: Frederick Warne & Co.,, 1911. Sextodecimo. Original green boards, spine and front board lettered in white, pictorial label with illustration to front cover, pictorial endpapers. 27 colour plates. Ownership signature to half-title in ink and pencil to front free endpaper. Small skilful repair to head of spine, spine gently rolled, a little minor foxing to edges; an excellent copy. First edition. The first two printings are believed to be identical. The story of Timmy and Goody Tiptoes is the only Beatrix Potter story apparently set in North America - although this is implicit rather than stated anywhere in the book. All the main animal characters are indigenous to North America: grey squirrels, chipmunks and a "large bear", but the waters are muddied somewhat by the presence of Yellowhammers (or Emberiza citrinella, the birds which sing "Little bita bread and-no-cheese!"), whose range includes Europe and much of Asia but not America.

        Peter and Wendy

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1911 Illustrated by F. D. Bedford. First edition, first printing. Publisher's decorative olive green cloth designed by Bedford, with an illustration of Peter with mermaids and crocodiles within a vine frame surrounding by fairies, candles and birds to the front board in gilt, illustration of Peter looking down on Captain Hook while surrounded by fairies and mermaids to the spine in gilt, lettered in gilt. Very good, with some wear and rubbing to the extremities, some toning to the spine, minor fraying to the spine head, bright panels, former owner's 1911 inscription to the front free endpaper, fresh and clean interior. Overall, a tight and pleasing copy. Peter and Wendy is the popular story of a mischievous young boy who refuses to grow up and spends his days flying and adventuring with his troop of Lost Boys on the island of Neverland. Peter Pan made his debut in Barrie's 1902 novel The Little White Bird, but his best-known appearances are as the title characters in Barrie's 1904 play Peter Pan, or the Boy Who Would Not Grow Up (published 1928), the 1906 novel after the play Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, and this 1911 novel Peter and Wendy. Notably, this edition contains the final chapter "When Wendy Grew Up," which tells of Wendy's return to Neverland as an adult with a child of her own. Today, this story is generally referred to by the shortened title Peter Pan.. Illus. by Beford, F.D.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        John Philip Sousa, "The March King," praises the acoustics of Berkeley's Greek Theatre as "the most unique and delightful to me ?"

      "Typed Letter Signed, ""John Philip Sousa,"" 1 page, 8.5"" x 11"" on hotel stationery, Los Angeles, October 17, 1911, stating his preference for the acoustics of the Greek Theatre in Berkley's Greek Theatre. Usual mailing folds, else fine condition. ""There are certain places in the world where concert givers are most anxious to perform, and when they do, they ever afterward point with pride to that fact. Among the most famous are the Trocadero, in Paris, Queen's Hall, in London, and the Greek Theater, in Berkeley. As I have appeared in all of them, it is not difficult to see I am most happy, but the most unique and delightful to me is unquestionably the Greek Theater."" The Greek Theatre was constructed in 1903 with financing from William Randolph Hearst and has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 1982. Sousa's first appearance at the Greek was in October 21, 1904. Sousa's management at the time had anticipated that the ""excellent acoustic properties of the theatre will enable the band to appear at better advantage than it can in many other places."" (Oakland Tribune, October 11, 1904, p. 7)"
