        HAMLET: PRINCE OF DENMARK (Portfolio of 34 Etchings)

      [Berlin: Paul Graupe, 1920]. Folio. Portfolio of 34 etchings used for Frank's magnificent illustrated edition of Hamlet (J. Schroder, 1920). Engravings housed in cloth-backed portfolio with marbled paper over boars and stamped title label on the upper cover; light wear to the portfolio; first and last etching a trifle toned from the portfolio else a clean suite. While the book is fairly uncommon, to find a suite of etchings is all the more unusual. There was a smaller edition of 12 Roman numeral copies from a larger limitation that were issued with an additional suite of etchings. It seems likely that this is a waylaid suite. 1 etching pencil-signed by Frank.

        Photo Album]: Mount Alison Ladies College

      Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada 1920 - Oblong octavo measuring 6" x 8". String-tied black cloth over flexible paper boards with "photographs" stamped on the front board. Contains 62 sepia-toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring around 2.5" x 3" and 3.5" x 5.5" with captions. Very good album with worn edges, some detached pages, and tears with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a woman while attending Mount Allison Ladies College. The photos in this album are from the years 1917-1920. Throughout the album there are group photos of the faculty and students around campus as well as candid images of the women. These include girl's posing in the gymnasium, participating in a marching drill on the campus grounds, and in various costumes. One photo from November 1917 shows a girl posing with a gun, another shows two women pretending to get married with one dressed as a groom and the other a bride, and a variety of Halloween costumes. The girls are also seen cuddling in bed together in their pajamas and posing with school pennants. There are also group photos of the graduating classes of 1918 and 1919 with girls in full graduation cap and gown. One section of photos shows the "Lawn Drill" which was a favorite part of the closing exercises and involved the girls marching and forming shapes on a field with their bodies. Towards the end of the album there are photos of men in World War I with images of men in uniform and one of two men posing by a canon. Beginning in 1854 the "Ladies College" was formed as a branch of the Mount Allison Boy's Academy in Sackville, New Brunswick, Canada. An editorial written by Mary Electa Adams, a teacher at Mount Allison in 1855, discussed how instead of the normal method of teaching women Mount Allison's programs aimed at "producing women of intellectual Vigour." Adams felt that "women needed and deserved a rigorous academic program." The college was the first in the British Empire to award women a bachelor's degree. An interesting collection of photographs depicting a young woman's education during World War I.

        [Archive]: Letters from a Female Philanthropist to Louis Wiley at the New York Times

      New York, 1920. Near Fine. An archive of 12 typed letters signed and 2 handwritten notes from philanthropist Ann Morgan to New York Times business manager, Louis Wiley between 1913 and 1920. All letters fine.A small archive of letters written by philanthropist Ann Morgan to Louis Wiley, the business manager of the New York Times between 1913 and 1920. Many of the letters are written thanking Wiley for helping Ann with advertisements and articles written about the numerous charitable organizations she was involved in. Other notes include politely declining invitations to dinner and thanking Wiley for gifts such as tickets to shows. Two of the letters discuss the work of Isobel Hapgood who was interested in translating Russian for the New York Times and whose translation work Ann Morgan was fond of and whom Morgan was advocating for. In a letter dated February 11, 1915, Morgan writes, "Old Miss Isabel Hapgood who, like many of the rest of us, is suffering from an accumulation of too much gray hair, is very anxious to do some Russian work through the Times....her translations are astonishing and her interest, love, and knowledge of Russia are certainly sincere." A letter from December of 1913 mentions the S.P.U.G. movement or the Society for the Prevention of Useless Giving. She writes, "the account of a week ago Sunday on the S.P.U.G. was obviously the best we have had in any paper, and has already done us untold good."Ann Morgan was an American philanthropist and socialite who was the daughter of J.P. Morgan. She was heavily involved in aid relief in France during the First World War which led to her being the "first American woman appointed a commander of the French Legion of Honor" in 1932. She was also an activist for unions and created organizations such as S.P.U.G. and the American Friends of France during World War I. She was also involved in the arts and helped fund Cole Porter's first Broadway musical. Louis Wiley, esquire was the business manager of the New York Times for over 50 years.A modest but interesting collection of letters from an important female philanthropist.

This copy signed and inscribed by Ruby's husband 'To * + Elsie from Bill Dyson of the gumtrees'. A poignant inscribed copy.

        (Photo Album): A Collection of Photographs and Real Photograph Post Cards of Various Places in Great Britain during the 1920s

      London / Wales / Glendalough / Belfast / Scotland, 1920. Good. Oblong folio measuring 14" x 9.5". Brown suede over stiff paper boards. Contains 21 gelatin silver sepia toned photographs measuring between 5" x 3" and 5" x 3.5" without captions, and 146 real photograph postcards. A loss of the spine with modest chipping and some tears on the pages, thus good. A collection of photographs and postcards depicting scenes from various places in and around Great Britain including: Gloucestershire, London, Wales, Glendalough, Belfast, and more. Most of the postcards are real photograph post cards featuring vast landscapes and people. One of the post cards shows a large ornate building, "New City Hall, Belfast". Another shows crowds of people walking around on a busy street in London. Many of the postcards are from Valentine & Sons, a printing company that grew to be Scotland's leading manufacturer of picture postcards. Most of their postcards were real photograph cards numbered on the front in hand, which sometimes made the figures illegible. Some of the postcards have also been handpainted. The sepia photographs feature some people at a church, boats, and locations in a forest. An extensive collection of real photograph post cards and pictures circa 1920s.
