        Extensive Autograph Letter Signed, six pages on 3 separate 4to sheets of line paper, Dedham (Norfolk County) Jail, May 22, 1927

      Vanzetti writes a long easy to read letter, from the Dedham jail, almost three months to the day before he died in the electric chair. He writes to Lilly Sarnoff, a sympathizer. "Dear comrade Lilly …we are hoping very little...we have never hoped in Courts and Judges…we are still hoping only on what the comrades and the people will compel the State to give us. Because our case is grave, the solidarity so vast and great, the accuse [sic] so weak and wreched [sic], and our defencive [sic] proofs so strong and evident…the people hoped in a victory and they always got a defeat. Now we are in the hands of Gubernatorial discretion. A bad beast , believe me. But as the evidences [sic] in our favor are so strong, as the protest is universal, the people hope again in a victory. Our case proved…that a handful of men invested of power by the stupidity of the people and who call themselves public servants care a fig for the people [sic] wishes and pay no attention to the people claims…I guess is was Victor Hugo who said that, 'Hope would be the last goodness in life were it not for disperation [sic, no end quote]. I think there is something beyond disperation [sic] and I have learnt that man cannot lives [sic] without hoping…Oh! About the Madison Square Garden….The 'Corriere of America' an [sic] fascista-daily of New York…reported that there was 300 or 400 people at the demonstration and that the orator attacked the fascismo and were violently radical in their words. The Boston Herald said thee were 10,000 people, and the Daily Worker that were 20,000. I think the Herald was the more exact of the three…the Corriere published a letter of an Italian captain, asking what attitude the radical would assume if S. & V.[Sacco and Vanzetti] were fascista. I wanted to answer that we would not even have been indicted if instead to be anarchists we would have been blackguards…." He interrupts his reaction to the reports of the demonstration in New York with personal musings about how his experiences and thoughts might "make a wonderful book." He continues. "Now, returning to the meeting I said it to be of [sic]the Madison Square Garden - I wish to specify that I mean the later demonstration in our behalf, which happened lately in some public square of New York…the comrades have been…galvanized by our trial and our performing wonders. Mankind as [sic] done for two obscure and rebellious workers what on [sic] the past would have only be [sic] done for saints and kings…." He signs in full, "Bartolomeo Vanzetti.". At the time Vanzetti wrote this exceptionally detailed letter, the Sacco and Vanzetti case had almost reached its historical conclusion. Their appeals were exhausted, and as Vanzetti refers to here, their case was now in the hands of Massachusetts Governor Fuller to whom they appealed for clemency. Their appeal was denied. Sacco and Vanzetti were arrested for murder during a payroll robbery in Braintree, Massachusetts, a crime both denied committing. As Italian immigrants and open anarchists, they were caught up in the fear and prejudices of the Palmer raid and Red Scare of the 1920's . Both men received a posthumous pardon by former Massachusetts Governor, Michael Dukakis, but the controversy of their innocence remains. Vanzetti's eloquence also endures as is evidenced in this letter from jail. Despite his misspellings and occasional incorrect syntax, this letter bears witness to one of America's liberal heroes. Overall browned, bends and slight chips to margins, margin creases, one hole on third sheet near the correspondent's name.

        Charles-Alexandre Lesueur Artiste et Savant Français en Amérique de 1816 à 1839

      Le Havre: Museum d'histoire naturelle, 1920. Large octavo, 42 plates; some leaves loose in the binding, but a good copy bound in marbled parchment boards, original wrappers retained. Lesueur in America. A detailed and surprisingly rare monograph on Lesueur's travels in America, which includes a brief summary of his work as naturalist and artist on the Baudin expedition. This work is of particular interest for Lesueur's later career. In 1815, he travelled to the United States with the American geologist William Maclure, and in 1825 joined the New Harmony commune in Indiana soon after it was founded. It was during this period that he cemented his reputation as a naturalist, especially for his work in conjunction with the American Thomas Say.

        Romance of the Greys

      London.: Decoy Press.. First Edition.. 1920.. Folio, 17.5 x 12 inches; eleven mounted color plates after works by Christopher Clark, R.I. At rear, six pp. of advertising touting "The 'Greys,' the big cigarette with the choice flavor"; these adverts feature black and white illustrations (one depicts the R-34 airship) several of which are by Christopher Clark. Front and rear covers abraded along top edge. Toning and very light buckling to endpapers. Printed dedication on paste-down title on front cover reads: "For Colonel W.E.R. Kelly. With the Compliments of Major Drapkin & Co." The Introduction to the volume identifies its intent: to trace the history of the "Scots Greys" in word and picture. "The Second Royal North British Dragoons (the 'Scots Greys') have a record of nearly two hundred and fifty years' distinguished service... Every regiment has its romance--the romance of its history, traditions, corporate spirit. These memories of the glorious past help to form its fighting spirit, and are rightly treasured by those whose work it is to make the living regiment worthy of its honorable parentage." The narrative traces the Dragoons from 1678 through the First World War. Major Drapkin & Company were the manufacturers of Greys cigarettes. "Romance of the Greys" is an uncommon publication, listed as being held by only one WorldCat library. The volume, in good condition, is beautifully illustrated; contents bright and clean. .

        Karavane. Dzejoli 1913-1919. Niklavs Strunke grafika.

      Riga: Vainags 1920 - Octavo, wrappers, 127pp., undated but 1920. Linards Laicens (1883-1938) was one of the leading intellectual forces of the Latvian avant-garde. A leftist, frankly often a propagandist, he was a poet, novelist and essayist who had a strong sense of visual design. He edited a number of major journals, left for the USSR in 1935 and was executed there in 1938. This work is the first collection of his poems in the new republic of Latvia. Laicens enlisted Niklavs Strunke for book design, cover and five linocuts, all in Strunke’s most visually experimental style incorporating futurist and cubist elements. Niklavs Strunke (1894-1966) was one of the leading artists of the Riga avant-garde artists group; a gifted graphic designer, he worked in both conventional and cutting-edge genres. Rare: only one copy found in North American libraries. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Pages and edges are clean and free from previous owner markings. Inscribed and signed by author on front free endpaper: "My good wishes to Mildred M. McOmber - Nicholas Vachel Lindsay - May 9, 1921, Syracuse, New York - Come let us be bold with our songs." 127 pages. Nicholas Vachel Lindsay (November 10, 1879 – December 5, 1931) was an American poet. He is considered the father of modern singing poetry, as he referred to it, in which verses are meant to be sung or chanted. His extensive correspondence with the poet Yeats details his intentions to revive the musical qualities in poetry as had been practiced by the ancient Greeks. For the final twenty years of his life, Lindsay was one of the best-known poets in the US. His reputation was high enough to enable him to befriend, encourage, and mentor other poets, such as Langston Hughes and Sara Teasdale. Vachel Lindsay, together with Langston Hughes, helped define the school of Jazz Poetry in the first decades of the 20th century.

        THE RESCUE

      1920. [inscribed to Sir John Millais] A Romance of the Shallows. London & Toronto: J. M. Dent & Sons, 1920. Original green cloth. First English Trade Edition (issued after the American edition and also after a 40-copy private issue of the English galley proofs). Begun in 1896, and in effect completing the trilogy begun with ALMAYER'S FOLLY and AN OUTCAST OF THE ISLANDS, "THE RESCUE was Conrad's albatross, the book which hung about his neck from the beginning of his writing career almost until the end of his life" [Cagle].~This is a very good-plus copy (very little external wear, but the original endpapers are cracked (and re-glued) at the gutter. Cagle A49b(2) (copies are noted with gilt or black spine lettering; this copy's lettering is in gilt, though not particularly bright since little real gold was used in the post-war years). With the discreet bookplate of Conrad mega-collector Stanley J. Seeger. Housed in a handsome morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.~This is an inscribed presentation copy, reading in Conrad's hand "Sir John Millais | affectionately from | his friend | Joseph Conrad | 1920". Sir John Everett Millais (1888-1920), the grandson of the famous Pre-Raphaelite painter by the same name, was a neighbor of the Conrads in Kent, who during the years 1916-1920 frequently came over to play chess with Conrad. A lieutenant in the Royal Navy, he had seen action on board the HMS Stephen Furness, but developed tuberculosis and was forced to retire in 1916; he succumbed to the disease at age 32 just three months after receiving this book from his neighbor (the book was published on June 24th and Millais died on September 30th). His mother and Conrad's wife were also best of friends.

        RUN OF 1,350+ DIFFERENT ISSUES OF ARGOSY / ARGOSY WEEKLY / ARGOSY ALL-STORY WEEKLY magazines

      1890s-1940s, 0000 First editions. More than 1350 different pulp and bedsheet sized magazine issues spanning the 1890s through the 1940s. Overall condition is above average, and the run is virtually complete beginning with the 1920s, but with increasing numbers of issues missing prior to that, particularly in the 1890s. [To avoid any confusion, please note that while many Edgar Rice Burroughs issues are included in the above "Argosy" series of magazines, titles such as "Under the Moons of Mars" and "Tarzan of the Apes" are not present because they were published in a different "All-Story" series of magazines specifically entitled The All-Story Magazine / All-Story Weekly / All-Story Cavalier Weekly. The "Argosy" and "All-Story" series of magazines did not merge until 1920]. [NB: Due to the physical size/weight of this item, unless other arrangements regarding potential transportation are mutally agreed to, this item is available on a "pick-up" only basis].. First Edition. Soft Cover. Very Good.

        Autograph letter signed ("Richard Strauss") to the German-born American composer, pianist and musicologist Erwin Bodky

      Octavo. One page of a bifolium. Dated July 1, 1920. On Strauss&#39;s letterhead, with "Landhaus Richard Strauss Garmisch" imprinted at upper left. In German. With autograph envelope. &#11;&#11;Strauss warns Bodky that life is expensive in Garmisch and offers an alternative: "If your financial means do not permit you to travel, I would be quite willing... to give you some lessons when I will be in Berlin again in the second half of January 1921. The same goes for Stiebitz or Solomon."&#11;&#11;Slightly worn; creased at folds; envelope browned. . "[Strauss] emerged soon after the deaths of Wagner and Brahms as the most important living German composer. During an artistic career which spanned nearly eight decades, he composed in virtually all musical genres, but became best known for his tone poems (composed during the closing years of the 19th century) and his operas (from the early decades of the 20th)." Bryan Gilliam and Charles Youmans in Grove online&#11;&#11;Bodky studied with Dohnányi, Juon, Kahn and others at the Musikhochschule in Berlin, going on to win a fellowship from the Prussian government that enabled him to continue piano studies with Busoni and composition with Strauss. His compositions include a piano concerto, a chamber symphony, and chamber music, all apparently unpublished. He taught at the Longy School of Music in Boston and at Brandeis University.
