1920. A treasure trove of 78 glass advertising slides for use in a Petersburg movie theater in the 1920's or 1930's. These would have been flashed up on the screen before and after the movie, and perhaps during the movie when the reels were being changed. They are rather crudely handpainted and lettered, adding to their local charms. "Tony's" on Sycamore Street "Known coast to coast for our home cooked and delicious meals"; "Bob White Ice Cream"; "Mann's Bread Served Exclusively at our Eating Booth" -- these are but a few of the many Petersburg businesses whose flickering names often with a painted image appeared on a Petersburg movie screen.

[Oklahoma]
[Oklahoma City?]: Southwestern Bell Telephone Co, 1920. Very good.. [36]pp. Original printed card covers, stapled. Light wear and soiling, especially to lower corner. Small tape reinforcement to rear lower corner. Some minor foxing to contents. An early telephone directory for the little Oklahoma town of McAlester -- the largest town inside the Choctaw Nation -- published little more than a decade after Oklahoma statehood. The directory provides a single alphabetical listing of residences and businesses, noting address as well as phone number. Residences are denoted as such, and interestingly numbers outside of town are also indicated as "rural," with addresses such as "NW of city." With numerous advertisements for local businesses, including an ad for a local company bottling spring water (delightfully described as "absolutely sanitary"). We locate two serial records in OCLC, at the Mid-Continent Public Library in Missouri and at Stillwater Public Library in Kansas -- neither has any directories from before the 1950s. Rare.

LeSesne, R. [Richard] H. [Habersham]
Daytona Beach, Florida: R. H. LeSesne, c. 1920. LeSesne, R. H. 13 3/8 x 10 1/2 inches Haberle-tone (Orotone) in original gesso-decorated gilded frame. Original sealing paper backing, chip and torn, with the photographer's label "Haberle-tones / Are photographs made on glass instead of paper, which gives them a brilliancy and depth that cannot be obtained in the ordinary photograph. Haberle-tones are made only by R. H. LeSESNE, Daytona, Florida" affixed at the bottom edge. A few slight blemishes to the frame surface; otherwise, a very good example. (partial frame showing). Richard Habersham LeSesne, 1880 - 1948, was born in Clarkesville, Habersham County, Georgia and settled in Daytona, Florida by 1908,when he purchased the photographic studio of Henry Kaiser; he died there in 1946. His reputation as a photographer is primarily tied to the Daytona Beach Speedway where he documented the land speed record attempts from the 1920s through the 1930s. However, as Daytona Beach gained as a winter destination for those further north wanting warmer climes, he seemed to have established a market for his local landscapes, using the Orotone, or as he named them, Halberle-tones, the process made famous by Edward S. Curtis. In keeping with the similarity of appearance, LeSesne used the same "bat-wing" frames that Curtis popularized.

Dixon, Maynard
[San Francisco]: [1912-1920]. 74 leaves [46 cm x 39 cm] of handmade paper. The majority of the leaves have three uniform holes at the left. Item #2886 The portfolio contains 75 entries (28 are duplicates), as well as the title page, on handmade paper. All entries are in Dixon's distinctive hand, and include the title, size, date, and sometimes the location and disposition of the work. The cover is titled Paintings by Maynard Dixon, along with his distinctive Thunderbird symbol outlined in a circle. The entries were accompanied by original photographs done by noted San Francisco photographer Gabriel Moulin. Most of the Moulin photographs have been removed but five still remain. These photographs [24 cm x 17 cm] contain either Edith Hamlin's stamp or Gabriel Moulin's (and in many cases some pencil annotations, probably by Hamlin). The photographed paintings are: 'The Trading Post' - 'Corral Dust' - 'Camp in the Mountains' - 'Home Pastures' - 'The Old Cow Town'. Among the numerous entries are murals for Anita Baldwin's Indian Room and Jinks Room for her Arcadia home, The Old Trading Post, Corral Dust, Home Pastures, Pony Boy, Blackfeet Historians, Camp in the Mountains, The Navajos, The Story Tellers, From Range to Range, What an Indian Thinks, Cattle Country, Home of the Half-Breed, among others. A number of works are from his legendary 1917 trip to Montana. Dixon probably intended the portfolio as a document he could show prospective clients and for museum and gallery exhibitions.

Edith Wharton
Wharton, Edith - The Age of Innocence - Appleton & Company: New York, 1920 - First Edition / First Printing - "(1)" present on the last page of text as required in order to denote the first printing of the first edition. This copy has all of the textual points other sellers mention but those are not in fact real points as they are present in the second printings as well. The book is heavily worn. There is rubbing, fraying, chipping, tanning, spotting, soiling, parts of the spine are missing and the spine is split and holding on for dear life. Internally the copy is rather clean although there are creases to the corners of some of the pages and there is some of the to-be-expected tanning. The binding is still square, and while it is loose, it is still holding on. If ever there was a candidate for leather binding or to be re-cased, this is it. This copy is a true first printing with the "(1)" on the last page and the textual points (which aren't really points) all present and as such is scarce. Easily one of the hardest of the early Pulitzer Prize winners to obtain. Awarded the Columbia University Prize. Awarded the Pulitzer Prize, making Edith Wharton the first woman to receive that illustrious distinction. Basis for the silent 1924 film of the same title, also the basis for the 1934 talking film of the same title. And finally, basis for the superb 1993 adaptation which starred Daniel Day-Lewis, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Winona Ryder. This final adaptation was nominated for five academy awards and would win for Best Costume Design. All books are offered with a full 30 day posta … [Click Below for Full Description]

Harold Wilson; Adam Smith; Ricardo; Maitland; J B Priestley; Edmund Buke; Jonathan Swift; Oliver Goldsmith; Hugh Dalton; G D H cole;
Oxford, Cambridge etc, London, Oxford, Cambridge etc, 1920. Seventy five books, many annotated and with ownership inscriptions, from Harold Wilson's Oxford days and his time at grammar school in Huddersfield and the Wirral, including the prizes awarded for securing the life-changing Gladstone Prize at Oxford. All of these books stayed with Wilson until he died in 1995 and were only sold by Wilson's family earlier this year following the death of his widow Mary Wilson after being removed from the Westminster flat that the couple shared for decades. Harold Wilson's college prize copy of Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations (with notes laid in) is here alongside Ricardo, Maitland on the Constitution (annotated), the Coles on the Condition of Britain, the Webbs on Trade Unionism, J B Priestley's English Journey, Edmund Burke's speeches and a selection from Swift - both with Wilsonian annotation. Many of the major economic works of the 1920s and 30s are present among the Gladstone Prize volumes including Angell on The Story of Money, Pigou on the Economics of Welfare and Von Haberler on Prosperity and Depression. From his schooldays Wilson clearly held in affectionate regard Goldsmith's She Stoops to Conquer which survives in a battered copy with significant annotation that suggests Wilson may have starred in the role of the character Tony, probably in the sixth form at Wirral Grammar School or during his years at Royds Hall Grammar School in Huddersfield before his father's redundancy forced the family to move from Yorkshire to the north west. Taken together these books are revealing … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kaulbach, Friedrich August von - (1850 München - Ohlstadt/Murnau 1920)
Radierung und Kaltnadel, um 1920, auf aufgewalztem China, signiert und nummeriert. 22:13 cm. Nr. 31 der Auflage. Brillanter und breitrandiger Abdruck dieser reizvollen Darstellung! Friedrich August ist der Sohn und Schüler Friedrich Kaulbachs (1822-1903) in Hannover und Großneffe des Stammvaters der Malerfamilie Wilhelm Kaulbach (1805-1874). Nach einem Studienaufenthalt in Nürnberg siedelte Friedrich August 1871 nach München über, wo er von Wilhelm von Diez (1839-1907) und Franz von Lenbach (1836-1904) gefördert wurde und die ihn auf die alten Meister, besonders die Venezianer hinwiesen. Auf Lenbachs Rat reiste Kaulbach seit 1873 immer wieder nach Italien. 1886-1891 war er als Nachfolger Carl von Pilotys (1824-1886) Direktor der Münchner Akademie. Friedrich August von Kaulbach ist einer der großen Münchner Gesellschaftsmaler seiner Zeit neben Franz von Lenbach und vielleicht das künstlerisch höchststehende Mitglied der weitverzweigten Malerfamilie der Kaulbachs.

MARGA [GIL ROËSSET, Marga, illustrator]. Consuelo GIL ROËSSET.
Madrid: Mateu, 1920. Folio (330 × 225 mm), pp. 47, [1]. Illustrations throughout, including 8 full page, in black and yellow, by Marga. Evenly browned, due to paper quality. Rough trimmed in original decorative wrappers with flaps, traces of blue silk ties now absent. Rubbed, with small imperfections to spine (slight loss), but actually a good copy of a fragile book printed on indifferent paper stock. First edition, the first published work of Marga Gil Roësset (b. 1908) then aged twelve. Marga's talent was astonishingly precocious, and her compositions for this fairy tale by her sister, Consuelo, combine vestiges of a distinctive Spanish art nouveau with a troubling, dreamlike quality entirely her own. Born into a cultivated and talented family, she became dangerously ill as a child, manifestly influencing some of these extraordinary illustrations. She published further illustrations before becoming a sculptor and exhibiting at the Esposizione Nazionale di Belle Arti a Madrid in 1932 as one of the most promising artists of her generation. She had, however, become infatuated with the poet Juan Ramón Jiménez (who was married) and committed suicide in 1932, having destroyed most of her work and presented her manuscript diary to Jiménez on the day of her death (it has recently been published).

Die Karte, die auf einer früheren amerikanischen Landkarte basiert, weist einen roten Überdruck auf und soll japanische Investitionen in amerikanische, insbesondere New Yorker Immobilien über die Japan-American Enterprise Company fördern. Das Woolworth Building (233 Broadway), New Yorks erster Wolkenkratzer, der zwischen 1910 und 1912 gebaut wurde, ist als Illustrationen für den beeindruckenden Baustil und die Investitionsmöglichkeit der Stadt im Zentrum zu sehen. Frank Winfield Woolworth selbst beschrieb 1910 das Gebäude als "größtes Einkommen produzierende Immobilien, in das ich mein Geld investieren konnte."

PROTHEROE, Ernest] [artist uncredited
not published, 1920. 17pp. typescript, plus one original painting and five ink sketches/drawings. Typescript in very good condition on onion skin paper, with some crner creases, but overall quite well-preserved. Painting in excellent condition, protected by an onionskin cover, and drawings mostly in excellent condition; a few taps to some corners. 17pp. typescript with some pencil hand-corrections for what appears to be a chapter in one volume of the "Budge and Betty" children's book series, authored by Ernest Protheroe. The typescript has a few corrections on each leaf. There are some maquettes or final pen and ink drawings which depict illustrations of various sized and shapes which were to be used in the book. There are pencil notations with locations for the illustrations, which vary wildly, so we presume that these illustrations may be for the whole book, and not just the single chapter whose typescript is presently included. Most arresting is the vibrant watercolor painting, which measures about 7.5" x 11", and is in a very "final" state, with great detail. Some extra leaves depict these same drawings and the painting, and appear to be proofs for the final illustrations which were likely used in the book. Since there is no title that exactly matches the title of the typescript, we are not 100% sure in which published book these original works ultimately appeared. In any event, a very nice grouping of original art and working text, fit for any great collection of book illustration or children's books.
