        Life: The Seventeenth Grove Play of the Bohemian Club. SIGNED

      San Francisco: The Bohemian Club, 1919. First edition. Wraps. Very Good. 8vo, printed stapled wrappers, pp. 60, [3]. Signed on the front flyleaf by Harry Leon Wilson, Domenico Brescia, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Warren S. Palmer. Signed at the rear of the book by William H. Smith, Joseph S. Thompson, Xavier Martinez, James Hopper, Sam Hume, Antoine de Vally, George Sterling, Ulderico Marcelli, Edwin Henry Lemare, and two others we have been unable to identify. Wraps tanned and creased, two short tears at the spine, about very good. / In the summer of 1919 Sergei Rachmaninoff was invited by his friend Sir Henry Heyman to accompany him to the Bohemian Grove in Monte Rio, California, and to attend the closing festivities of the Bohemian Club's encampment there. The weekend was marked by a Friday night "entertainment," directed by William H. Smith, and on Saturday, the final night of the season, the more formal Grove Play, "Life," written by Harry Leon Wilson and with music by Domenico Brescia (featuring what might well be the first time a set of chromatic cowbells was used as a symphony instrument). To commemorate the event, the playscript and musical notes were printed privately for members, with a complete cast list for both the Grove Play and for the "Cremation of Care," the pageant that had opened the season several weeks earlier. (The "Cremation of Care" would ultimately become standardized, but in 1919 it was written by Charles Caldwell Dobie and featured music by Edwin H. Lemare). / The signatories include novelist and playwright Wilson (he would go on to popularize the term "flapper" in his novel BUNKER BEAN), the author of the play; -- Brescia, the composer, best known in posterity for his chamber music compositions, who would return to the Grove with a second production in 1926; -- Rachmaninoff, distinguished guest; -- Palmer, President of the Bohemian Club and General Manager of the Northwest Pacific Railroad; -- Smith, long-time member and frequent director of Bohemian Grove productions; -- Thompson, president of the Pacific Electric Manufacturing Corporation, who would write the 24th Grove Play ("Wings"), produced in 1925; -- Martínez, a Mexican-born artist and bohemian who would be named to represent California in the Hall of Fame at the World's Fair of 1940; -- Hopper, a French-born writer, novelist, and college football coach (he led Nevada to its first-ever win over Stanford, in 1900), who was also a close friend of Jack London's, famously contributing his football jersey for use as a flag on the Snark for one notable voyage out of San Francisco Bay; -- Hume, a theater technician who had been the organizer of the first exhibition of stagecraft in the United States; -- de Vally, Belgian-born San Francisco voice teacher and recording artist, director of the San Francisco Grand Opera Company, and president of the SF Musicians' Club; -- Sterling, celebrated in Northern California as one of the greatest American poets (his poem "The Wine of Wizardry" has been called "the greatest poem ever written by an American author"), a significant figure in bohemian literary and artistic circles, and in the development of the artists' colony at Carmel (like Hopper, he was also friendly with Jack London; he was additionally mentored by Ambrose Bierce, and would himself later mentor Robinson Jeffers); -- Marcelli, Ecuadorean-born composer and conductor, founder of the Rico Marcelli Symphony Orchestra, who wrote six Grove Plays, the first in 1920, the last in 1961, and who, as a conductor, made his mark leading the orchestras in silent film houses for Tivoli and Grauman throughout the teens and 20s; -- and Lemare, British-born organist and composer (he composed the Friday night event), called "the most highly regarded and highly paid organist of his generation" as well as "one of the most important composers of the late Romantic English-American Organ School." A scarce and attractive piece of ephemera commemorating a highlight from the early days of the Club.

      New York: E.P. Dutton and Company. Hardcover. 357 pages. Index. Twenty-one black and white illustrations including a tissue-protected black and white frontis portrait of author. Seven maps. "In the following pages I speak of Russian affairs with the experience of an observer who has lived from early boyhood among the Russian people and has shared with them their joys and sorrows... Since her collapse, Russia has become the focus of social unrest throughout the world. Bolshevism - a foe more deadly to our civilization than German Militarism - cannot be effectively combated unless we understand the circumstances of its origin and working, indissolubly connected with the so-called Russian Revolution - a Revolution that has still to justify its name... The questions that have been put to me so often will rise to the readers' lips - What is Bolshevism and Why did the Russians succumb to its influence?. This book answers these questions in full." - from Preface. Text divided into the following sections: Slavdom, The Tatars, and Autocracy; Democracy, 'Socialism,' and 'Freedom'; Russia at War; Kornilov and the Cossacks. Prior owner's details, dated 1919, upon front free endpaper else unmarked. Small hole in cloth near top of joint between backstrip and front board. Binding intact. A sound copy. . Good. 1919.

        FLORA: A BOOK OF DRAWINGS

      1919 - BIANCO, Pamela. FLORA: A BOOK OF DRAWINGS. With Illustrative Poems by Walter de la Mare. London: William Heinemann, (1919). First edition of Bianco's first book; it is inscribed by her on the ffep.: "For Harriet Sprague, with love from Pamela Bianco." Illustrated with 8 color plates and many line illustrations. [8],43 pp. Quarto, illustrated paper boards. A little minor wear to boards, else a fine copy in a very good illustrated dust-wrapper, which has some occasional light soiling, is starting at spine folds, and has shallow loss at heel and crown. Pamela Bianco, born in 1906, was a drawing prodigy; and this book is a result of her first exhibition at the Leicester Galleries, in 1919, when she was thirteen. Walter de la Mare, a visitor to the show, was moved by her exquisite drawings to write the poems that accompany them in this volume. Bianco went on to illustrated books written by others, including her mother, Margery Williams Bianco, as well as books that she wrote. (National Book League, Walter de la Mare: A Checklist, A36 mentions that there are at least five variants to this edition, due to binding errors, causing misplacement of poems and drawings; but it does not list them. In this copy, the last poem, "Sephina," finishes on p.43 with a small illustration at the bottom.)

        Lovely formal portraits, one of the Roosevelt family before FDR contracted polio, and another of just Eleanor

      "(1)Photograph, black white, 10.5"" x 13.5 overall, image 7"" x 8.75"". Taken in Washington, D.C., on June 12, 1919, the Roosevelt family is looking through a scrapbook. Pictured are: Franklin, wife Eleanor, and mother Sara seated on a sofa. Franklin, Jr. (born 1914) is seated on his father's lap while John (born 1916) is on his grandmother's lap, the only one looking at the photographer. Standing behind them are Anna (born 1906), Elliott (born 1910), and James (born 1907). It was taken while FDR was serving as Pres. Woodrow Wilson's Assistant Secretary of the Navy, five months after Eleanor's uncle, Theodore Roosevelt, died. A year later, at the 1920 Democratic National Convention in San Francisco, Franklin D. Roosevelt received his party's nomination for Vice President because of his successful record in naval affairs during the World War, his popularity, and his family name. While vacationing at Campobello Island in New Brunswick, Canada, in 1921, Roosevelt contracted polio. (2) Early Photograph, sepia, 9"" x 12.25"" (blank margins trimmed) overall, image 7.5"" x 10"". Signed in pencil at lower right of image ""Kazanjian/N.Y."" Aram Kazanjian was an Armenian refugee from the Turkish massacres of 1905-1906 who became a successful painter and photographer in Boston and New York. His daughter, Arlene Francis Kazanjian, born in Boston in 1907, dropped her family name and became a well-known actress in films and on radio, Broadway, and television. Ironically, on her first show on ""What's My Line?"" on February 16, 1950, Arlene Francis was the panelist who correctly identified the night's mystery guest, Elliott Roosevelt, son of Eleanor and Franklin, and you know Eleanor was watching.

Two of Schroeder's cousins, with whom he had no contact, contested the will, and successfully voided it. In upholding a lower court's decision, Judge O'Sullivan of the Supreme Court of Errors the State of Connecticut explained, "The law will not declare a trust valid when the object of the trust, as the finding discloses, is to distribute articles which reek of the sewer." There appears to be no record of this volume of writings being published in one volume during the author's lifetime. Description: various paginations, 24cm. Includes a selection of related newspaper and magazine clippings loosey inserted.

        Two page Autograph Letter Signed ("John Sloan")

      First. Written on both sides of a single quarto leaf. Dated 30 May 1919 to Gus Mager. Folded as mailed, with some rubbing to the folds, and an ink blot (made by Sloan in the writing), but still very good or better. Written on brown, butcher-type paper, Sloan gives very detailed instructions for stretching, sizing, and preparing canvas for painting, with a brief note to Mager that "The above is about all I know, but I think it is reliable." Mager was the creator of several successful newspaper cartoons including Hawkshaw the Detective, as well as a member of the Ash Can school of fine art painting, and an exhibitor in the landmark first Armory Show. .
