Else sound, clean, and apparently complete. Largely chronological photographic record of the construction and engineering projects of Hamer Bros. of Detroit, MI. Likely produced either for company archives or for marketing and promotional purposes, the album showcases the highway and heavy construction firm's many works in and around the Motor City. The earliest images, from 1920, are of an Osgood Co. steam shovel loading earth onto mule-drawn carts. Remainder of album effectively showcases pile driving, water diversion, bridge building and demolition (including a dynamic image of a river dynamite blast - above). Photos exhibit consistent clarity and competent composition, with most prints described either in caption or negative with date, location, job, etc. Projects include: railroad grade separation; Mississippi lock construction (Wisconsin); Ford Motor Company factory/warehouse construction; Grand Truck Western Railroad bridge removal; Henkel Flour Mill foundation pile setting; Goebel Brewing Company river retention wall -- among others.

        TLS (carbon copy). Vienna, 11. VI. 1920.

      1920. Small 4to. 1 p. To Egon Friedell: "Ihr freundliches Schreiben kann ich erst heute beantworten, denn ich bin am 10. Mai abgereist und fand Ihren Brief gestern, bei meiner Rückkehr hier vor. Ehe ich Ihnen für das Altenberg-Buch zusage, möchte ich doch gerne mit Ihnen sprechen. Ich habe Briefe von Altenberg und mancherlei Erinnerungen an ihn. Aber ... Und gerade über dieses 'aber' könnte ich nur mündlich diskutieren. Selbstverständlich bezieht es sich nicht auf das - in diesem Falle nebensächliche - Honorar, auch nicht auf Altenberg, sondern lediglich auf seine Umgebung, die bis an sein Grab ebenso von gelegentlicher Vortrefflichkeit wie von mehrfacher Miserabilität gewesen ist [...]".

        [Wyeth, N C - Presentation Copy] Robinson Crusoe

      New York: Cosmopolitan Book Corporation, 1920. First Wyeth Edition. Original blue cloth, gilt stamped, with a color pictorial cover label. Illustrated with 12 full-page color plates by Wyeth. This copy owned by Peter Logan Bockius, Jr., the great-grandson of George Bockius, the grandfather of Carolyn Brennerman Bockius Wyeth, the wife of N.C. Wyeth. Carolyn was one of ten children, and Peter's grandfather and namesake, Peter Bockius, was one of seven children. The Bockius' were free-spirited, and the entire extended family, along with N. C. Wyeth, was close-knit. The books are variously inscribed to "Pete" or "Peter L. Bockius, jr" (see individual descriptions below) and either simply signed "N.C. Wyeth" or "from Uncle Convers". Since Peter was not Wyeth's nephew, but rather his wife's second cousin, Wyeth must have felt a particular affection for the boy. Wyeth inscriptions are scarce, and familial presentations are rare. This copy INSCRIBED BY WYETH on the half-title, "A Merry Xmas / to Pete / Uncle Convers / 1922". Spine dulled; frontispiece tissue guard lightly foxed. Covers and contents fine.
