Loraine & Shaw shared political affiliations & a passion for theatre: it was Loraine who premiered as the lead in Man & Superman on Broadway, the production was massively successful & launched Shaw as a force to be reckoned with in the United States.

        Emancipation Proclamation September 22, 1862.

      Renesch Chromolithograph broadside, 16" x 20".Creases where folded, slight abrasion at the conjunction of one of the folds, some slight chipping to the lower right corner, and the left margin, which extend a little into image; still a colorful and unusual piece. A scarce early 20th century broadside version of the Emancipation Proclamation in the form of a WWI "uplift" poster. At the center is Abraham Lincoln holding a copy of the Emancipation Proclamation. He is flanked with smaller images of Paul L. Dunbar, Frederick Douglas, Lt. Col. Franklin A. Dennison, and Lt. Col. Otis B. Duncan. Other images include soldiers, farmers, children at school, and a bald eagle perched on top of American Flags. We are reminded in the captions of some of the accomplishments of African American, and the promise of the future. A very attractive Broadside, even with a few imperfections.

      Paris: Nos Loisir, 1919 [Daragnès, Jean-Gabriel] NOS LOISIRS. REVUE LITTERAIRE MODERNE. Three Original Pen & Ink Daragnes Illustrations. Nouvelle série. N° 3, Paris: 15/08/1919. 4to.,/ in-4, pp. 66 à 96. Broché/wrappers. Illustrated/illustrée. Numéro de cette revue contenant la nouvelle "La Poste ensorcelé" de Charles Wadsworth Camp [p81-88]. Cette nouvelle traduit de l'englais par Charles Torquet est illustreé de 6 dessins dans le texte par jean-Gabriel Daragnès. This issue/exemplaire contenant 3 dessins originaux rehaussés à l'encre de Daragnès qui ont servi a l'illustration. Formats 23.5 cm x 13 cm; 10 cm x 15.15 cm; 13 cm x 19 cm. Charles W. Camp [1879 -1936] journalist et auteur dramatique américain s'est specialisé dans la description des cheminots et était un ancien employé du Canadian Pacific Railway. Rares dessins originaux à l'encre datant du début de la carrière de Daragnès. Jean-Gabriel Daragnès (1886-1950) était un peintre, un éditeur et un illustrateur de livres, et notamment d'ouvrages que l'on désigne désormais communément sous le vocable d'illustrés modernes. Au premier chef de ses réalisations, figurent entre autres une édition remarquée de Suzanne et le Pacifique de Jean Giraudoux, ou encore Les Ballades de la Geôle de Reading d'Oscar Wilde (gravures "à la manière noire", 1917). Bien d'autres ouvrages illustrent sa carrière. Il a collaboré, en tant que directeur artistique, à la maison d'édition Emile-Paul Frères, qui lui doit nombre de ses plus belles réussites. Il a été peintre de la Marine de 1933 jusqu'en 1942. A rare find with 3 original Daragnès works, each an apparent preliminary drawing used in Nos Loisirs. The comparisons are interesting as they reflect on the artist's working methodology; the final illustration slightly revised for publication. Nos Loisir in fine condition in the original glassine. The original Daragnes illustration in near fine condition - one small tear, neatly repaired.. Original Illustrations. 1st Edition. Illus. by Daragnès.

Floral and foliate borders in yellow surround the text and plates, referencing Eastern illuminated manuscripts. According to White, the "bright, enamel-like" colors of Persian miniatures influenced Dulac's color palette for this book, which includes bold tangerine and carmine red. Many of Dulac's illustrations also have a rich, Far-Eastern sensibility: the plates for the story of Aladdin evoke Chinese and Japanese brush paintings. This handsome edition contains four more plates than the English edition. Slightest chipping to spine ends, else a very fine copy in the original blue printed wrappers.

        Important and lengthy Typed Letter Signed with Autograph Note, unsigned, 4 separate pages, 4to sheets, Hollywood, Nov. 27, 1942

      Miller answers a long letter received from his correspondent. He refers to writers including Anais Nin, her "Diaries", Celine, William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, Lawrence Durrell, in addition to his own works. He begins by giving his correspondent, Brian Atkinson, his New York address while he will be traveling and also gives Anais Nin's New York address. "I believe Robert Symmes (now Duncan) a young poet [Robert Duncan (1919 ?1988) is with him and trying to publish things, [James] Cooney is a farmer...he is not doing a revue, but looking for printing jobs. He is always desperately poor...." Miller refers to editor and publisher of the Phoenix literary journal, James Cooney, which published new, non-conventional works. "Anais Nin I could tell you more about. I am in constant touch with her. That first volume of the Diary never was published in Paris or anywhere. Couldn't raise enough subscriptions for it. Now she too has her own little press...She did bring out a very beautiful little edition of a book that appeared in Paris - now quite changed, the text, I mean -"Winter of Artifice."...quite unique...She is...hoping to raise enough money to get started on the huge diary some day...." Miller notes that the book, "The Gates of Aulis," the first novel by the Gladys Schmitt , "sounded too good to be true. The American Proust...." He then notes other new writers including Carson McCullers and Eudora Welty. Miller read her books and admires them, "and find a lot to promise in: 'reflections in a Golden Eye,' and 'The Heart is a Lonely Hunter...." He gives McCullers' address and discusses Welty. "from Mississippi - supposed to be fine. Short story writer as yet. Perhaps one of the comers...." He mentions Frederic Prokosch, "I just read his 'The Seven Who Fled'- Harper's is his publisher...." Then Miller moves onto the best current author, "William Faulkner...he is not much read, does not make a living from his books and is not really recognized yet. (Better known in Europe....) Miller notes that if anything important were going in American literature he would know of it, noting the publication of Alfred Kazin's "'On Native Grounds'...deals with the subject... and it up to date...." He offers Kazin's address and mentions that he met the English poet, George Barker, through his close friend, Lawrence Durrell. "Durrell is now in Cairo, c/o Publicity Sections, British Embassy...." He mentions his own publisher, "New Directions" and other magazines and writers, including, "Celine! Now you're talking...He's a marvelous writer the best contemporary writer alive...Hard to find his books now - because of the prejudice against him since he revealed his anti-Semitism (The book world here seems to be controlled by the Jews largely.)...Arthur Koestler is much in vogue...Allen Tate...I don't think much of him...However, if you follow up all these clues...you ought to get an interesting pot-pourri...." He then discusses his own writing since his correspondent asked. Miller lists his books published since he returned to the US from Europe, "'Wisdom of the Heart,'...(a miscellany of previously things, for the most part; 'The Colossus of Maroussi,'...a book about my travels in Greece,...'The World of Sex.' and essay...I was commissioned to do a book on America by Doubleday...I...withdrew the book when we entered the war...I don't want it printed till after the war...'Quiet Days in Clichy'...There was a pirated edition of Cancer brought out in Mexico...I am now on a very long book - running to 1500 to 2000 pages to be called 'the Rosy Crucifixion,' a sequel to the Tropic of Capricorn. Unpublishable here. Perhaps it may be done in Mexico...I don't make a penny from my writings...Thought I might get a soft job in the movies - but no luck...." He recommends books and comments on the plight of young new writers in America. He recommends, "'William Blake's Circle of Destiny' by Milton O. Percival...It's a sort of Bible for me...the tendency here is to kill off the young writers. There is no place for them in the current periodicals...I suppose as with the last war when it's over, something will happen. But the young writers here are not... like the young writers abroad. In England they were mostly Homos...Here they are just limp and dead...no guts...All hoping to make a living from their work! Such a crazy notion! No good artist makes a living,usually, until he is past fifty - if he's lucky....How long did it take for Melville to become known to the general pubic? A hundred years...." He mentions that Walt Whitman initially had poor reviews and, "Now he's sanctified...." He wishes his correspondent good luck and adds two postscripts in his own hand on the side of page 3 and page 4. "You might also write editors of 'Accent,' a little review and considered the best of the lot...." He gives the address. "P.P.S. Another fellow who keeps informed is the librarian here at U.C.L.A....," and gives his address. He signs in full, "Henry Miller." Some slight margin tears on the first and second sheets, same on the pages 3 and 4 both. Page 3 margin tear at the top affects two words and also two holes at center fold. Three holes on page 4 on the folds. The words in each case remain readable though affected.

        FLORA: A BOOK OF DRAWINGS

      1919. Very Good. 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.)
