        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.

        Heinrich Kley: Der unentschlossene Rokokokavalier (Originalzeichnung)

      1920 - Gouache, Feder, Farbstifte und Bleistift 42,5 x 58,5 cm Provenienz: Emily Kley (Witwe des Künstlers) Privatbesitz, München BIOGRAFIE: Heinrich Kley (1863 Karlsruhe - 1945 München) Nach Beendigung des Studiums an der Karlsruher Kunstschule 1885 ist Heinrich Kley darum bemüht, sich im Kunstleben seiner badischen Heimatstadt zu etablieren. Zwar erhält er immer wieder Aufträge von ortsansässigen Privatpersonen, Behörden sowie Unternehmen, engagiert sich in der lokalen Künstlerschaft und nimmt an Ausstellungen teil, doch bleiben größere Erfolge letztlich aus. Diese stellen sich erst nach 1900 ein, als das Unternehmen Krupp in Essen auf Kleys Fähigkeiten als Schilderer topographischer Sujets aufmerksam wird. Durch die Verbindung von zeichnerischer Präzision und koloristischem Feingefühl gelingt es ihm, die spezifischen atmosphärischen Stimmungen in der Welt der Gußstahlfabriken, Hüttenwerke und Schiffswerften einzufangen. Seine um impressionistische Elemente bereicherte realistische Kunstauffassung überzeugt bald auch andere große Unternehmen, so dass Kley innerhalb weniger Jahre den Ruf eines erstrangigen und vielbeschäftigten Industriemalers genießt. Der breiten Öffentlichkeit wird Kley durch die Mitarbeit an den Zeitschriften Simplicissimus und Jugend bekannt, die ihn 1909 zum Umzug nach München bewegen. Bis zum Ersten Weltkrieg veröffentlichen sie hunderte seiner humoristischen, satirischen und grotesken Federzeichnungen. Themen der Gesellschaftspolitik, des technischen Fortschritts sowie des Verhältnisses zwischen Mann und Frau erfasst er mit phantasiereichen Bildideen, psychologischem Einfühlungsvermögen und unverwechselbarer Virtuosität. Mit gleicher Könnerschaft charakterisiert er menschliche Verhaltensweisen durch Mensch-Tier-Vergleiche pointiert und unterhaltsam. Obwohl es nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg ruhig um den von Schicksalsschlägen getroffenen Künstler wird, erfahren seine Federzeichnungen eine erstaunliche Rezeption in den USA. In den späten 1930er Jahren wird Walt Disney auf sie aufmerksam und nutzt sie fortan als wichtige Inspirationsquelle für seine Zeichentrickfilme. So lebt Kleys Kunst in den Figuren von „Dumbo“, „Fantasia“ und „Dschungelbuch“ weiter und begeistert weltweit ein Millionenpublikum.

        The Book of Thel.

      (William Muir, 1920). Small quarto. (8)ff. One of only thirty-two copies of this facsimile edition, according to Quaritch catalogue 693, this being copy Number One. Signed by the publisher, William Muir, on the front cover. Although not seen here, several copies of this 1920 edition included a note hand-written by Muir inside the front cover stating, "This book is copied from a very richly coloured original which was lent to me by Mr. Bernard Quaritch ... in 1887. I now issue this edition of fifty copies through Messrs. Quaritch of Grafton Street. London, August 1920." The original lent to Muir was Copy J, now held at Harvard's Houghton Library, and Muir never completed the full fifty reproductions. It is interesting to note the differences in Muir's 1885 facsimile of The Book of Thel, which was based on Copy D, and this 1920 edition, based on Copy J. D was printed in yellow ochre and has much more muted colors; in contrast, Copy J was printed in dark green and the colors are significantly more vibrant. Muir accurately reproduced these differences in his own reproductions. The Book of Thel was Blake's first illuminated book written in fourteen-syllable lines, a form he used for many of his later books. The book speaks to life's transience, to fears of death and sexuality, and to the human desire for transcendental truths. Near fine in the original wrappers, which show some wear to the yapp edges; text block loose in wrappers but still attached. Housed in custom slipcase with bookplate of Philip Hanson Hiss.

        P.S. What do you think of the market?

      8vo., original cloth backed paper covered boards lettered in green on upper board. Repair to tear on gutter of title-page otherwise a very good copy. First edition. Inscribed by the author. A series of 38 humorous fictional letters between an investor, Dave, and his broker Eddie. While satirical in tone, the letters offer insights into the worries and frustrations inherent in playing the stock market, and foreshadow the crash and subsequent depression that would come ten years later. "A. Kustomer" was the pseudonym of Jacques S. Cohen. At the time of the book's publication, Cohen was the head of the Statistical Department at J.S. Bache & Co., a securities firm, and later worked at the firm of Baar, Cohen & Co. He also wrote numerous articles for The Financial World, also published by The Guenther Publishing Co., which was run by Louis Guenther. Louis Guenther is perhaps best known for the libel and blackmail suit he was embroiled in during the beginning of the twentieth century. In 1911, George Graham Rice, himself a known con artist, published an article in the magazine Adventure (owned by the Ridgway Company) accusing Guenther of using The Financial World as a blackmail scam, supposedly threatening various businesses with bad press if they refused to purchase advertising. Guenther fought back, ultimately winning a libel suit against The Ridgway Company in 1915. A few years later, Jacques S. Cohen, apparently unfazed by Guenther's supposedly unsavory business practices, began publishing his "Eddie from Dave" letters in The Financial World as well as articles under his own name. Apparently unaffected by the scandal, The Financial World continued publishing until it folded in 1998. From the library of Harry Hoffman, presumably the same Harry Hoffman who was World Secretary of the American Exchange National Bank in New York in 1922. The inscription, which reads, "Harry Hoffman: To my friend and counsellor. Who if he had wisely counselled, perhaps I would not have written this book--Jacques S Cohen Dec 8/1920", is the only indication that Cohen was indeed the author. Even James L. Fraser, an investment counselor who self-published a revised edition in 1966, did not know the identity of "A. Kustomer". He writes in his introduction that even Richard Anderson, then-editor of The Financial World, knew nothing of Kustomer's identity, and that it is, "one of the many little mysteries that often crop up when one digs into Wall Street's past." In 2013, the book was revised, annotated, and privately reprinted again as Letters to My Broker: P.S. What Do You Think of the Market? by Clem Chambers, a financial pundit as well as CEO of ADVFN, a financial market website. He too, did not know the identity of the original author. These reprints are a testament to this odd and obscure little book's enduring relevance to the financial world.
