BOSWORTH, Welles (1868-1966)
1920. The reknowned American Beaux-Arts architect famed for New York City's AT & T Building, MIT's Cambridge campus, Theodore N. Vail's mansion (Morristown, NJ) and much of the noted Rockefeller family estate Kykuit (Tarrytown, NY) spent much of the 1920s and '30s in France, where patron John D. Rockefeller Jr. placed him in charge of the restoration of the Palace of Versailles and Notre-Dame de Reims. TLS, 1p, 8½" X 9", New York, NY, 1924 July 2. Addressed to Dr. Samuel W. Stratton, president of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (1861-1931, noted University of Chicago physicist who created the Bureau of Standards). Near fine. Just a few years after completing MIT's campus, its creator writes to MIT's president, "It is a great pleasure to hear from you and to know that you are going to be accessible all summer. I am, of course, involved just now in clearing up accumulations during my long absence, but look forward to an early date when I can come over to Boston to see you." Handsomely signed. Bosworth was an MIT graduate, by the way -- class of 1889. A quite uncommon autograph. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Nielsen Kay
Circa 1920. Signed by Nielsen at the foot of the drawing. an original pen and pencil drawing with wash on heavy cream coloured stock. The stock roughly 360 by 265mm, signed at the bottom, the image itself roughly 270 by 175mm, now matted in blue boards and with protective plastic sleeve. A RARELY ENCOUNTERED DRAWING BY ONE OF THE FOREMOST ILLUSTRATORS OF THE EARLY PART OF THE 20TH CENTURY. The Nielsen drawing is quite an interesting piece. It seems possible that it might have been intended for use as a set design, but it is also a rather accomplished drawing which has very finished elements such as the figure at the far left and the figure facing. These incorporate Nielsen's best traits as an artist. The figure to the far right seems also to have a wash applied as the artist might have done while beginning his water colour work. A working figure underlies one of the finished ones, and the drawing is signed by Nielsen at the bottom of the plate. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

BRULATOUR, Jules E. (1870-1946)
1920. One of the other possible inspirations for Charles Foster Kane in Orson Welles' "Citizen Kane" was this pioneering American silent film producer and all-around tycoon. Brief ANS, 1p, 7" X 6½", Paris, France, 1920 (OR "1930") July 17. Addressed to Irving Schwerke (1893-1975), American expatriate pianist and music critic. Fine. On embossed red letterhead of the hotel "George V," Brulatour notes: "Your write up was marvelous, & we are very grateful to you. We would be so happy if you would come over Friday and dine with us We will have two friends from home. We will go to the Folles Bergere afterwards." Although the date of this letter is debatable, surprisingly, either option makes perfect sense. If dated 1920, this letter is quite intriguing, for Brulatour's second wife was singer, actress and "Titanic" survivor Dorothy Gibson (1889-1946), for whom Brulatour left his first wife and married in 1917. The first Mrs. Brulatour managed to get get their union annulled as invalid in 1919 -- after which, according to one source, "a humiliated Dorothy Gibson [left] New York shortly thereafter to live in relative peace and anonymity in Paris." This letter appears to prove that Brulatour followed her there, perhaps to help reestablish her singing career. She had appeared in some Metropolitan Opera House productions in the teens, and Schwerke appears to have favorably reviewed a singing appearance she made in Paris. Their post-marriage dalliance did not last, however, for Brulatour married silent film actress Hope Hampton (1897-1982) in 1923, a union that lasted until his death.

"It has been usual to preface the Sale Catalogues of important Libraries with a note calling attention to the most interesting books in them. In the case of the Huth Library, however, it has not been thought necessary to do this, owing to the widespread fame of the collection and to the fact that students and collectors have now been familiar with it more than a generation, through the catalogue published in 1880. This catalogue we have used as the basis of the present sale catalogue, revising and amplifying it throughout, in order to include in it, so far as possible, all the latest results of bibliographical research.

Warren Harding
Harding Gushes With Affection For His Cronies.& .& A letter to the Charles Forbes family praises the man who would later betray his confidence.& & President Harding was elected in 1920 and he brought a few friends (known as the "Ohio Gang") with him to the White House. The Gang was led by Harry M. Daugherty (Harding's appointment as Attorney General) and included Albert B. Fall (Secretary of the Interior) and Charles R. Forbes (Veteran's Bureau). These men were corrupt, and after Harding's death scandal after scandal came to light, ruining his reputation in history.& & After it was discovered that Secretary Fall had received several hundred thousand dollars from oilmen Harry Sinclair and Edward Doheny, to whom he had leased naval oil reserves in California and at Teapot Dome, Wyo., the name Teapot Dome was linked with Harding's as a symbol of corruption. Fall, finally convicted of bribery, went to jail, as did others. Daugherty, dismissed by Coolidge, barely escaped their fate. As for Forbes, he figured out how to put taxpayer money, intended to build veteran's hospitals, directly into his own pockets. When this was uncovered he fled to Europe to avoid prosecution, but eventually returned and was sent to prison. The following letter, written while Harding was serving as U.S. Senator from Ohio, is an eye-opening illustration of just how close the future president was with these men.& & Autograph Letter Signed on his personal letterhead, two pages, Washington, December 30, 1918, to Mrs. Charles Forbes, wife of his convivial crony.

Beerbohm, Max:
[Np]. 1920.. Landscape format (22 x 27 cm), pencil and ink wash on paper. Matted and framed under glass. Very, very slight toning to paper, but in visible fine condition (not examined out of frame). With exhibition label retained on verso. A fine caricature by Beerbohm, signed by the artist, "Max 1920." The image was published in A SURVEY in 1921, and exhibited at the Leicester Galleries in May of 1921, where it was purchased (according to the retained LG label) by poet John Drinkwater. The caricature shows an Elder Critic and a Younger Critic, standing image left of a table, on which is a barrister's wig on a stand. In addition to the caption title, the text reads: "Elder Critic: 'And what is that - er - rather peculiar object? ' Younger Critic: 'My hat, sir.'" A variant, perhaps preliminary, version is in the Clark Library, with the figures reversed, unsigned, and with the caption partially torn away. HART-DAVIS 1989.
