      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.)

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. .

        Who's Who" revisions to FDR's biographical sketch made by FDR in his own hand in 1919, including the excising of one word "Democrat" .

      Autograph Document [Note] Signed, "Franklin D. Roosevelt", Who's Who in America revision form, September 26, 1919, one page, 8.5" x 11". An update form from Who's Who in America from 1919, with the biography of FDR from a prior edition pasted on the form for revision purposes. FDR makes several updates and pens in some other accomplishments in his own hand, such as being "in charge of inspection of U.S. naval forces in European waters, July-Sept. 1918 and of demobilization in Europe-Jan-Feb, 1919." Interestingly enough, FDR seems to overemphasize the significance of his executive duties vis-a-vis American demobilization in his 1919 Who's Who revision in his own hand. FDR also adds that he is an "Overseer of Harvard" (a position he held until 1924). Some inked editorial changes include excision of one word ("Democrat"- an interesting word to excise on a document of this type, given the fact that FDR would forever transform the Democratic Party in the United States) in FDR's own hand, plus full signature. Original folds with tear along horizontal fold and edge wear; overall very good condition.
