Hubbard, Father
ca. 1920-1962. Unbound photo album, measuring 18" by 12". Black card paper. Approximately 1,212 black and white photographs of various sizes. Most of the photographs have a number assigned to them, written on the album paper in white chalk pencil. Photographs are fixed to the album pages with glue. The photographs' subjects vary, but many include portraits of Hubbard in various locations throughout Alaska, as well as the local people he met on his travels and his dogs. The images are all in fine condition and vary in size from 2.5 X 2.5 inches to 8 X 10 inches with a majority being 3.25 X 4.5 inches. A small (6" X 10") colour hand-out from one of Father Hubbard's lectures at the University of Santa Clara is also included. The provenance of this album is currently unknown, but many of the photographs are the same as the ones currently held in the collection of the archives at the University of Santa Clara, with some exceptions. The numbers assigned to the photographs do not match the ones held in the Santa Clara collection, and those photographs came directly from Father Hubbard himself. There are also several photographs that seem to have belonged to the American inventor George W. Bettes. Bettes invented a machine that painted the lines on highways, as well as a "snow machine" for the American Army in the late 1930s. He later donated one these snow machines to Father Hubbard for one of his Alaskan expeditions, as well as one to Lt. Commander Bursey for his expedition to the "Little America" exploration site on Antarctica. There are several photographs in this collection of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Massachusetts and Connecticut, 1920. Two volumes. Large oblong quartos. Measuring 12" x 9.5". String-tied black cloth over paper boards. The two volumes contains 325 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 3" x 4" and 3.5" x 5.75", some with captions on the verso. Very good photo album with some tears with near fine photographs. A photo album kept by a New England family during the first half of the 1920s. From the few captions it appears that many of the photos were taken in Connecticut and Massachusetts. The majority of the photos are taken on the seaside during a number of summers. These photos show the family in bathing costumes of the era playing on the beach and swimming. One photo shows two women lounging in the sand with a parasol. Most of the photos are candid snapshots and catch family and friends in the midst of conversation and games, such as an action shot of a game of leap frog. The New England coast is captured in lovely amateur snaps of seaside towns and crowds of people on the beaches, including West Haven Beach in Connecticut. Along with the vacation photos there are numerous shots of neighborhoods and family homes in different seasons. Some show a group of men working on the road in May with large swathes of the street torn up so that a track can be laid down, possibly for a trolley or streetcar. Another selection of photos show houses in winter covered in snow with views of barren trees lining the streets. There are also photos of a city taken looking down on the buildings from one of the taller buildings, showing bust … [Click Below for Full Description]

McSWINEY, Terence)
Printer Burgess, London, 1920. Souvenir broadside or napkin. Approximately 13.5" x 13.5". Printed in black and purple on thin Japanese paper or tissue. Contemporarily mounted on buff-colored cardstock. Slight bleedthrough from the glue used in mounting, near fine. A commemoration of the death due to a hunger strike by the Sinn Fein Mayor of Cork, giving the order of the funereal procession. McSwiney was an Irish playwright, poet and pamphleteer. A leader of the Irish Nationalists in Kerry and Cork, he was arrested in Cork for possession of seditious articles and documents, while serving as Mayor. He immediately went on a hunger strike. His death focused world attention on the Irish Question, and his processions in both London and Cork drew huge crowds. Souvenir napkins survive to some degree, but seldom in nice condition, because of the thin material and they were usually stored folded. We acquired a few napkins where the owner had the forethought to mount them, probably almost immediately.

NURSING PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM, SISTERS OF MERCY
Baltimore: n.p., 1920. Thirty-two 6" x 8" gelatin silver photographs mounted to both sides of black cardstock leaves, string-tied, with new black paper covers added. Undated, but the year 1920 appears on a chalkboard in one image. Pencil writing in a hard-to-decipher language-possibly Lithuanian-on first image, otherwise clean. Images are very clear and appear professional.The Sisters of Mercy--an international Catholic women's association dedicated to helping those in need--established the Baltimore City Hospital in 1874 and the School of Nursing in 1899. The school offered a rigorous three-year training program with classes taught by experienced nurses and by professors from the nearby College of Physicians & Surgeons. The school quickly drew large numbers of applicants, and a much-needed dormitory-like home was constructed that offered "more than 100 sleeping rooms which are well lighted and ventilated, spacious parlors, library, lecture room, study and recreation halls" (Costello, Sisters of Mercy of Maryland). Some of the images in this album appear to show parts of the nurses' home (a courtyard, parlor, and dining room), while others show nursing student in the classroom, learning to make a hospital bed, assisting during surgery, working in the pharmacy and the kitchen, tending babies in the maternity ward, and ministering to the sick and wounded in wards and in patient rooms. Of particular interest are the images from classrooms illustrating not only the teaching aids on the walls but the furniture and overall environment in which the nurses learn and train as well a … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: Cecil Palmer, 1920. Cecil Palmer, London, 1920. Stated First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good Condition. Book The publication of this first edition on March 4, 1920 marked the beginning of the Oxfordian movement, which promotes Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford, as the most likely candidate to have written the works ascribed to William Shakespeare. The book has been reprinted a number of times, most recently in a new "centennial" edition by the Shakespeare Oxford Fellowship, which traces its roots to Looney's book. On March 4, 2020, in a news conference to mark the centennial of its publication, editor James A. Warren called Looney's book "the Most Revolutionary Book in the History of Shakespeare Studies." This copy of the First Edition was a gift from Looney to his daughter.

Brod, Max, Schriftsteller (1884-1968).
Prag, Brehová 8, 23. VI. (1920), Kl.-4° (18,5 x 14 cm). 2 Seiten. Doppelblatt. Wahrscheinlich an den Herausgeber Max Krell (1887-1962): "[.] Mein Freund Franz Kafka ist jetzt in Meran, kommt aber in den nächsten Tagen heim. Seine Adresse ist: Prag, Poric, Arbeiter-Unfall-Versicherung. Ich gestatte gern den Nachdruck meiner Novelle 'Notwehr'. Bei der Korrektur werde ich ein paar kleine Stellen ändern. Es ist mir aber angenehm, daß Sie gerade auf diese Arbeit verfallen sind. Ich las sie heute daraufhin durch, nach langer Zeit, und fand sie merkwürdig aktuell. Natürlich müßte es mir frei bleiben, die Novelle später in ein Buch von mir aufzunehmen [.]" Brod war richtig informiert: Kafka verließ am 28. Juni Meran in Richtung Wien, wo er am nächsten Vormittag ankam. Er blieb noch bis zum 4. Juli in Wien, wo er täglich mit Milena Jesenská (verh. Pollak) zusamentraf. - Bereits am 2. April war Kafka von Prag nach Meran gefahren. Er war auf der Suche nach seelischer Balance, die immer wieder von individuellen Beziehungen, dem Krieg und der lauten Lebenswirklichkeit verhindert wurde. Das sonnige, mediterrane Klima Merans sollte sein Lungenleiden verbessern. Anfang Mai erschien "Ein Landarzt. Kleine Erzählungen." - Max Krell gab 1921 im Rowohlt Verlag den Band "Die Entfaltung. Novellen an die Zeit" heraus, in dem auch der erwähnte Text Brods enthalten ist. Auf letztem Blatt Bleistiftnotiz: "dieser Br. kam offen". Gewicht (Gramm): 20 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

The book itself is a fine copy, and apart from one small edge-tear to the fore-edge of page 19/20, and some light fading to the spine edges, has almost no wear. This is thanks to a beautiful copy of the original dust-jacket, which has only the slightest wear to the extremities, but is otherwise bright and intact. This is the first issue of the book, with the word "flat" obliterated on line 32 of page 35. Highly desirable copy of this highspot - Dos Passos' first book - based on his experiences in the Great War. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; In Dust Jacket]

Photographs.
1920. This is a collection of 340 gelatin silver prints, in 5 x 7 format, of a safari undertaken by an American or small group of American men, probably in the 1920s. The photographs are no longer in any particular order, but through them we can trace the progress of the Great White Hunters from the Statue of Liberty, through the Suez Canal, down the Red Sea to Mombasa Kenya, up to Nairobi, then into the Serengeti on a hunting expedition organized by a travel company called Safariland. One was a bespectacled, jowly fellow, who appears in photographs taken at many different locations. Another, who is pictured standing triumphantly over his kills, sported elaborate mustachios. There are also dozens of photos of street life and buildings in African cities and villages (as well as several scenes from Genoa, Italy, where the Great White Hunters apparently stopped enroute to Africa - probably via the Cunard liner "Berengaria" which is pictured here.) About 150 photographs document the slaughter that marked the climax of the expedition. The Great White Hunters and African bearers pose with zebra, African buffalo, various species of African antelope, cheetah, rhino, game birds, and smaller game. One particularly horrific series of 22 photos documents the killing and dismemberment of an elephant, the Great White Hunters proudly pose at the end with two sets of tusks. Only two of the photos contain any clues as to the men's identity. One is an image of the American sculptor Frank Tolles Chamberlain inscribed to a "Mr. Lincoln." The second is a print measuring 6 x 2 1/2 inches (the on … [Click Below for Full Description]

WHITMAN, Jr., John Franklin
1920. A collection of 13 original gouache paintings on paper, each measuring 12" x 16.25", mounted onto artist's boards (15" x 20"). One painting (of Lewis and Clark) has been neatly removed from the board (not present), modest rubbing and some scattered light glue stains at the margins of a few boards, one painting (of Andrew Jackson) with a few light scratches, overall very good or better. A very bright and attractive set of undated portrait paintings, most likely painted by J. Franklin Whitman as illustrations for a book or magazine. Born in Indianapolis, Indiana, Whitman attended both the Art Students League and the Metropolitan School of Art in New York. By 1920 he had set up Whitman Studios in Philadelphia. He is best known today for his historical book illustrations, a famous May 1928 *Vanity Fair* cover, and for his powerful series of posters which he designed and painted for the American Red Cross War Fund in 1943 and 1944. A compelling suite of 13 early paintings from Whitman's career, featuring portraits of Alexander Hamilton, George Washington, James Monroe, and several other celebrated Revolutionary War military leaders: Nathanael Greene, Henry Knox, Benjamin Lincoln, Daniel Morgan, Horatio Lloyd Gates, Marquis de Lafayette, and Friedrich Wilhelm von Steuben. Also included are portraits of Andrew Jackson, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, and America's Grand Old Man of the Army: Winfield Scott, also known as "Old Fuss and Feathers."

PICHON, R; [ART DECO]
Paris: Original Artwork for Ateliers de Dessin & Lithographie R. Pichon. c.1920. A stunning collection of 31 original square and rectangular decorative commercial designs in gouache and watercolour by the artist and graphic designer R. Pichon and his Parisian studio Ateliers de Dessin & Lithographie R. Pichon. Each mounted on card inscribed with the design's model number, with original glassine. Ranging in size from 7x7cm to 35x29cm. They are in very good condition, the designs themselves very sharp and bright, though their card mounts are a little toned and spotted and a few are lightly rubbed and creased to the corners. One design's mount is more heavily creased to one edge than the others, and has sustained some closed tears (though the design itself remains fully intact). All in all a unique, striking, and colourful collection of Art Deco designs. The works are executed in a wonderfully characteristic Art Deco style, with a clear resemblance to the fashion illustrations and textile designs of the couturier Paul Poiret; showing a strong influence from the sweeping lines of Japanese art, as well as heavy use of gold and silver, and a mixture of abstract geometric and natural motifs. Many of the pieces incorporate floral designs such as roses, wisteria, and bluebells, and all employ a bold and striking use of colour. The majority of these graphic designs were likely intended for packaging design and advertising for toiletries and cosmetics such as soap and perfume, a mainstay of the R. Pichon Studio. � Further details and images for any of the items listed are avail … [Click Below for Full Description]
