        The Feet of the Young Men, copy #11 of 377, signed by Kipling and the personal copy of Kipling's publisher, Nelson Doubleday

      Garden City, New York: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1920. Signed, limited, and numbered first edition. Hardcover. This is copy #11 of the first, signed, and limited edition of 377 copies and bears the personal library bookplate of Kipling's friend and publisher Nelson Doubleday. The poem The Feet of the Young Men, “a celebration of the outdoors life”, originally appeared in Scribner's Magazine for December 1897 and was first collected in book form in The Five Nations (1903). This is the first separate edition. Publication was driven by photographer Lewis Freeman, who contributes a 14-page introduction, in which he tells Kipling of his 15-year quest to collect photographs to illustrate the lines of the poem. Freeman relates how he first read Kipling's poem in 1904 in The Five Nations, and was immediately taken by the desire to pay tribute to the poem in a form that his words simply could not. There are 87 photographs on coated paper, most captioned by a line from the poem. This first, signed, and limited edition was issued in gilt-stamped quarter vellum spine over orange-yellow Japan paper covered boards with gilt double frame rules on outside borders and blind-stamped gold rectangular front cover panel, gray endpapers with alternating rows of swastikas and anchors, and contents printed on coated paper. This copy is in very good condition. The binding remains square and tight with sharp corners. We note customary toning to the vellum spine, though the gilt spine print remains legible. The boards are lightly scuffed and soiled. The distinctive endpapers remain intact and the contents show only mild spotting, primarily confined to the limitation and half-title pages. Kipling's signature and hand-numbered “11” remain distinct. The sole previous ownership mark is the decorative library bookplate of Nelson Doubleday affixed to the front pastedown. This book came to us from the library of Nelson Doubleday Jr., son of Nelson Doubleday, and grandson of Frank Nelson Doubleday, Kipling's friend and U.S. publisher and founder of the Doubleday publishing empire. F.N. Doubleday began work in the publishing industry working for Charles Scribner's Sons. His 18-year career with Scribner's included the task of assembling a complete set of Kipling's works for publication in a collected edition in 1897. His work with Kipling on this endeavor sparked a friendship and partnership that lasted for decades. Kipling affectionately gave Doubleday the nickname "Effendi", a play on the initials of his name - F.N.D. Frank's son Nelson was president of the firm from 1922 to 1946, as was Nelson Jr., from 1978 to 1983. This book has several instances of Kipling's swastika - on endpaper design, and on the title page. The word swastika comes from the Sanskrit svastika, which means “good fortune”, and this ancient hooked cross symbol was used at least 5,000 years before being polluted by association with Hitler's Reich.  It remains a sacred symbol in Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Odinism. The swastika is a symbol common to many editions of Kipling's works and came to Kipling's attention through his father's encyclopaedic knowledge of Indian art. Iconic English poet, short-story writer, and novelist Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) is chiefly remembered for his celebration of British imperialism, tales and poems of British soldiers in India, and his tales for children.  Despite this reputation, Kipling's extraordinary body of work “eludes all labels in its range and variety… Kipling's work is not only of the highest artistic excellence, it is deeply humane and fully expresses the sense of one of his favourite texts: ‘Praised be Allah for the diversity of his creatures.'” (ODNB)  Kipling was in his twenties when his stories of Anglo-Indian life made him a literary celebrity, and he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1907.  Kipling remains the youngest person to receive the Prize and was also the first English language author awarded.

        Spaziergänger. Lithographie.

      Signiert "R. Schlichter". Im Stein abermals signiert "R. Schlichter". Breitrandiger Druck auf Velin. 21 x 22,5 cm. Papier: 40,9 x 31 cm. Söhn HDO 72708-10. Eines 125 Exemplaren. Blatt 10 aus: Die Schaffenden, II. Jahrgang, 4. Mappe, 1920. Mit dem Trockenstempel "Die Schaffenden". - Der deutsche Künstler Rudolf Schlichter gilt als einer der wichtigsten Vertreter der Neuen Sachlichkeit. Schlichter studierte an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Stuttgart und an der Kunstakademie in Karlsruhe, u. a. bei Wilhelm Trübner und Hans Thoma. Schlichter unternahm mehrfach Studienreisen nach Italien und Frankreich und bekam durch seinen Malerkollegen Julius Kasper Kontakt zur Unterwelt. In Karlsruhe gehörte er zu den Mitbegründern der Gruppe Rih, übersiedelte dann nach Berlin, wo er sich der Novembergruppe, der Berliner Secession, den Berliner Dadaisten und der KPD anschloss. In den frühen 20er Jahren erschienen viele Buchillustrationen Schlichters. Sein Freundes- und Bekanntenkreis reichte von Bertolt Brecht, Sternberg, Alfred Döblin und Grosz bis hin zu Carl Zuckmayer, den er schon in Karlsruhe kennengelernt hatte. 1925 waren Werke Schlichters in der Ausstellung Neue Sachlichkeit in Mannheim zu sehen. Zwei Jahre später lernte er seine spätere Frau Elfriede Elisabeth Koehler, kennen und begann sich von der Politik abzukehren und dem Katholizismus zuzuwenden. Zu seinen Bekannten zählten nun Ernst von Salomon und die Brüder Ernst Jünger und Friedrich Georg Jünger. Unter den Nationalsozialisten wurden viele seiner Werke aus Museen entfernt und Schlichter wurde mit einem Arbeitsverbot belegt. Im Jahr 1939 zog Schlichter nach München, wo er unter anderem Kontakt zu Hans Scholl hatte, und sich der katholischen Zeitschrift Hochland anschloss. 1942 wurde Schlichter ausgebombt und verlor dabei einen Teil seiner Werke. Nach dem Krieg nahm er an der Ersten Deutschen Kunstausstellung in Dresden teil und gründete in München die Neue Gruppe. Gelegentlich arbeitete er für die satirische Zeitschrift Der Simpl. Sein Schaffen wandte sich jetzt dem Surrealismus zu. Rudolf Schlichter trat 1950 dem wiedergegründeten Deutschen Künstlerbund bei. - Schwache Griffknicke im Unterrand. An der rechten Blattkante ganz minimale Schmutzspuren.

        TUTT AND MR. TUTT.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1920., 1920. First edition. First edition. The correct first edition with the four errors contained on the "Contents" page. The very scarce first state with numerous errors on the Contents page, which is integral. The second state has the errors corrected and is on a stub. Four titles were incorrect, beginning with the first story, “Mock, Etc.” corrected to “Mock Hen and Mock Turtle.” A just about fine copy lacking the hopelessly rare dust jacket. Queen's Quorum 67 says, "It is interesting to note that in a list of books prepared by a committee of the Faculty of Harvard Law School for prospective law students -'books which will help them decide about the desirability of entering the legal profession or which will be of value in preparation for the study of law' - the tales of Tutt are included as 'an entertaining collection of short stories showing the great variety of questions which may confront a practicing lawyer and the chances for ingenuity.' So, Mr. Ephraim Tutt, tall and ungainly, with bony fingers and lank gray locks, with the inevitable stogy and the stove-pipe hat - in a phrase, the Lincolnesque legal beagle - has established his picturesque dignity even in the hallowed halls of Harvard - an academic acceptance seldom bestowed on fictional ferrets." A splendid copy of a scarce title.

        Photograph Albums and Family Photographs, approximately 600, of the Miller Family of the Roxbury and Dorchester Neighborhoods of Boston Massachusetts c. 1920's - 1960s

      Collection of family photographs of the Miller family consisting of 182 loose black and white and color snapshot and other photographs, and four photograph albums containing, respectively, 295, 38, 82 and 10 mounted and loose photographs. The photographs date from the 1920s - 1960s, with several from as recently as the 1980s. There are also 23 ephemeral items, mainly graduation programs and other education related items and death certificates, funeral programs of Miller family members. The photograph albums are worn, the leaves on which the photographs of the most extensive album are brittle and chipped, due to the poor quality of the paper stock. The images are generally in good clean condition. The photographs in this collection document the lives of the Miller's, an African American family of Roxbury, across four decades. From the 1920's through the 1960s the album records family events, holidays, graduations, marriages, vacations, and the domestic life of the family. The Miller children grow up, graduate and marry all of which is recorded in the images in this collection. Some family members appear to have immigrated to Boston from Virginia as part of the Great Migration. The death certificates in the collection list the deceased family member's addresses as 45 Beech Glen Street, Roxbury, 33 Wales Street, Dorchester and 16 Bowdoin Avenue, Dorchester.
