An excellent composition and example of the charm and skill he had at conveying a visual message. <br><br> A RARE and very lovely composition shows a Chinese coolie in Hong Kong, with a bamboo basket of chrysanthemums carried on his left hip. He wears a bamboo hat and holds a red and white Dahlia in his right hand and looks up at would-be buyers. Identical to a luggage label for a similar hotel in Hong Kong of the same period. This example does not have his usual signature in the lower left corner as other identical examples do. Never-the-less obviously an excellent Dan Sweeney" work of art. <br><br> DAN SWEENEY: BOOK ILLUSTRATOR & HOTEL LUGGAGE LABEL ARTISTS: Sweeney was an American illustrator, book illustrator, art deco artist, who also designed art nouveau hotel luggage labels, he worked 1920-1930's. There are a substantial number of books illustrated by Sweeney. <br><br> Dan C. Sweeney was born in 1880 in Sacramento, California. Details of his early years are unknown, but he must have started illustrating around the turn of the century.

BLACK AMERICANA)
Seattle.: Fisher Flour., No date. Ca. 1920. Seattle.: Fisher Flour.. No date. Ca. 1920.. Illustrated booklet 5.5 x 3.25 inches; 8 pp (including covers) that tells the story of the African-American child who, in adulthood, became the visual personification of a Seattle, Washington firm, Fisher's "Blend Flour." Some lettering on front cover abraded; contents in very good condition. One copy located at the John W. Hartman Center at Duke University. The story, told in verse and illustrated with cartoon images, relates how "a little Pickinny" began a life of wandering. "I's a skinny little nigger, But I showily likes to roam, So Uh'll start right now to figure How to git away from home." He hops a freight and takes in city after city, eventually winding up in Seattle--no longer skinny and over 6 foot tall. He is found sweeping out a store by the Fisher Brothers "who owned the big flour mill that grinds for countless others"; they turn him into the company icon--a massive figure who "simply rolls in fat." His story concludes as follows: "His name is now 'BLEND FLOUR' as the Fishers have arranged; So here's good luck and power to the coon BLEND FLOUR changed." The Fishers transitioned from flour to radio station ownership in the 1920s; they are today Fisher Communications with headquarters in Seattle. "A Wandering Story" is an uncommon ephemeral item utilizing the exploitive negative racial stereotypes frequently found in American advertising of the early 20th century. .

SCHIFF [1908-1968]: Schiff was an Austrian-Jewish artist. He was a keen observer of the Chinese spirit, showing the more fascinating visual insights to Shanghai life. . Schiff arrived from Austria in Shanghai in 1930 when he was 22 years old, and lived there until 1947. His charming cartoons captured the foreign community's interest and many were also published in local newspapers and journals such as the China Journal & the North China Daily News. . He also illustrated several books on China, a suite of Shanghai postcards, and was attributed to decorating the walls of the Cercle Sportif Français and other clubs. . After receiving an invitation to visit Shanghai from a cousin Schiff lived there for 17 years, becoming known as one of the city's great cartoonists between the two world wars. . Schiff's importance lies, first of all in the fact he depicted indelible characters that manifest what it meant to dwell in Shanghai, then an international City. . "He manipulates his works as a form of attack. Socially marginalized groups, such as prostitutes, 'taxi-girls' and beggars, are all subjects of his scrutiny." . *** Gerd Kaminski, autho … [Click Below for Full Description]

STRUNK, Jr., William (1869-1946)
New York: Harcourt, Brace, 1920. Rare, beautifully preserved First Trade Edition of this revered guidebook of essential rules of the English language. Small 8vo: 52pp. Publisher's original slate-blue paper-covered boards titled in black, black linen spine, former owner's name and address to front fly leaf. Binding strong, hinges undamaged, pages clean and bright with mild foxing restricted to front fly leaf. An exemplarily example. Time 100 (Nonfiction), 83. ¶ Strunk wrote The Elements of Style in 1918 and privately published it, in 1919, for in-house use at Cornell University, where he was professor of English. Harcourt, Brace published this first trade edition in 52-page format. "Strunk and White [E. B. White (Charlotte's Web), one of Strunk's first students and greatest admirers, who, in 1957, updated and revised the "Little Book," adding an introduction and a chapter on style] waded through the totality of our vast and complicated language and boiled it down to a terse 105 pages, including a glossary and index. No exhaustive explanations or sentence diagrams here--just 22 style rules and principles of composition, followed by 'a few matters of form,' a conclusive list of misused words and phrases and an all-encompassing 'guide to style.'" . . . The Elements of Style is a timeless reminder of the simplicity of proper writing and is likely to remain a useful tool for years to come." (Time 100) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.
