        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.

        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. (Blake Archive).
