      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."

        Autograph Letter Signed, 2 pp on one folded 8vo sheet penned on first and third pages, Norwalk, CT, Dec. 7, 1919

      - Flaherty writes to the President of the American Geographical Society agreeing to the postpone of his lecture until January 20th. "Indeed I should prefer it as it gives me better time for preparation?." He accepts the President's invitation for the Faherty's to dine with the President and his wife, "on the evening of the lecture, " and signs, "Robert Flaherty.". Flaherty wrote this letter before he began work the following year on his most famous and classic film, "Nanook of the North," depicting the struggle for survival of an Inuit family. Flaherty's wife, Frances Flaherty to whom he was married from 1914 until his death, was a writer. In 1948, she received an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Story for Louisiana Story. The film in documentary style promotes the benefits of oil drilling in the Louisiana bayous. An uncommon and fine letter.

        A Year for France. War Letters of Houston Woodward

      New Haven, CT: The Yale Publishing Association Inc.,, 1919. Original blue cloth, title gilt to the spine and upper board, crest of the Armée de l'Air to the upper board in gold and silver. Photogravure portrait frontispiece, printed on India paper and mounted, 14 half-tone plates, two of them folding. A little rubbed, and slightly shaken, but overall very good. First edition. This copy inscribed to the man who found Woodward's grave. Henry Howard Houston Woodward was born in 1896 at Chestnut Hill, Philadelphia, educated at Taft and Yale, he left university early to join the American Ambulance Field Service. He sailed for France in February 1917, and after participating in several actions - "in the hellish Mt. Cornillet district" - he tired of the AA; "The crowd who have come out since America declared war are a wretched bunch of émbusques, have disgraced themselves and America in Paris … I consider the time I served at the front the best I have ever lived … but it grieves me terribly to see how the AA has gone to the dogs." Woodward joined the Franco-American Aviation School at Avord, where he trained as a pilot, and joined the Lafayette Escadrille, No. 94 S.P., in December 1917. He explained; "We are in the Foreign Legion, aviation branch, regular members of the French Army." Woodward flew Nieuport scouts, raiding and patrolling over the German lines for the next few months - "We rule the air in this sector. In some sectors Fritz is king … but here we are the undisputed bosses of the third element. For several weeks now very few Boches have crossed to our side and gotten back to tell the tale … He's going to bring up some crack escadrilles surely, and then the fur's going to fly." On 1st April 1918, Woodward was posted "missing in action," and his grave only located after the war by Franklin Spencer Edmonds, a fellow Philadelphian working with the with the YMCA in Paris. This copy inscribed to Edmonds by Woodward's parents; "To Franklin Spencer Edmonds from George & Gertrude Woodward. 1919." Loosely inserted are a 2-page pencilled letter from Mr. Woodward, on his letterhead, expressing indebtedness "to you in doing for Houston and for us everything mortal man could do," and pressing Edmonds to accept the gift of a Liberty Bond; together with Edmond's retained carbon copy typescript of his letter, dated 18 February 1919, explaining how he and Lt. Pierre Maronavitch, a friend of Woodward's, and a fellow pilot, located the crash site and body, they; " … proceeded out from Montdidier … passing continually through lines of barbed wire, trenches, machine gun emplacements... We stopped at every grave we could see... About three and a third km from Montdidier, perhaps 50 yards from the road we saw the ruins of an aeroplane, and Maronavitch exclaimed at once that it was a Spad …Maronavitch at once identified it by the colours painted on the metal as belonging to Escadrille #94 … we turned it over and then scraped the mud and rust from the motor plate, eventually finding the number, 10828, which was the number of Houston's motor. About ten yards from the motor was a long grave which had been dug in a shell pit. It was marked by a small cross consisting of two pieces of charred wood from an aeroplane and at the foot was a small charred piece of the plane painted red and stuck into the grave by its wiring. There was no name... but it seems clear that the aviator who was in the plane when it came down on April 1st was buried here." Maronavitch's opinion was that "the burning of the 'plane caused the destruction of his papers and reports so that it was impossible for the Boche to identify by name the aviator." Also two clippings of an article - from the Philadelphia Inquirer? - reporting the finding of the grave. In 1963 Houston Woodward's remains were re-interred in the crypt of the Lafayette Escadrille Memorial at Marnes-la-Coquette. A highly-emotive Lafayette Escadrille association copy.

        Small Archive]: United Mine Workers of America Commission Signed by John L. Lewis to W.A. "Tony" Boyle, future president of the UMWA and convicted murderer of Joseph Yablonski, with related material

      - A small archive of documents pertaining to the organized labor career of W.A. Boyle. One of America's great power-brokers during his long life, John L. Lewis became acting president of The United Mine Workers of America in 1919. He finally retired in 1960 and was succeeded by Thomas Anderson, himself quite elderly and in failing health. When Anderson died three years later William Anthony Boyle took over the UMWA. "Tough Tony" Boyle consolidated the powers of the union president and was involved in widespread corruption. In 1969 Pennsylvania union leader Joseph Yablonski created a credible challenge to Boyle but ultimately lost, and was murdered with his wife and daughter a few days after the election. Boyle was convicted of ordering the murder and died in prison in 1985. Hollywood revisited the crime in the 1986 HBO film *Act of Vengeance* with Wilford Brimley portraying Boyle and Charles Bronson as Yablonski. Further details available upon request.

        ARA VUS PREC

      (London):: Ovid Press. (1919). First edition. Number 244 of 264 copies. Plain black paper boards, black endpapers, yellow imitation-leather spine with printed label, "Ara Vos Prec." Although the title and half title pages have "Vus" Eliot said it was "Vos." This is the first title published by John Rodker under his Ovid Press imprint. Eliot's fourth book and important as it contains "Sweeney Among the Nightingales," "Portrait of a Lady," "Preludes," et al. A note from the dealer from whom the book was purchased states the printed label is supplied. The spine shows some minor soiling but is still good to very good, and the boards are very good. Small chip at bottom of front endpaper; overall very good in specially made clamshell box. There were 10 unnumbered copies for review, 30 signed, and 220 numbered copies, but in our experience it wouldn't seem there were ever 30 signed copies as the signed copies are rare.

        HAMBONE'S MEDITATIONS

      Memphis: Jahl & Co., 1919 - Illustrated paper covers, stapled binding. Introduction by Sara Beaumont Kennedy. Very Good+ condition. Might grade higher but let's be conservative here. The publishing date for this book is shown in some sources as 1920. Nice copy of this rare sec ond volume of the collected works of Alley's famous 'Hambone', which ran in the Memphis Commercial Appeal. Misunderstood by most people, especially today, Hambone used satire to attack the entrenched racism of the South in the early 20th Century, th e KKK in particular. Quite a rare book in any form, but especially this nice. Textblock is very tight and clean, no damage. Perhaps themildest toning. Covers are evenly toned, as usual with this book. Small chip at base of spine, but covers remain f irmly attached. Small scuff upper right corner of front cover. Small chip to top edge of rear cover. Rear cover has outline of slightly darker toning, and at edges. None of these are egregious. Old pencil price on ffep, could be easily erased. Price d under the market for quick sale.
