Cuomo, il quale mi si è mostrato disposto a sobbarcarsi a questa fatica./ Il Cuomo accetta il concetto informatore dei due disegni, facendo riserve su particolari. Ma su questi ci sarà sempre modo d?intendersi. So che contro i due disegni vi sono, nella Commissione, molte prevenzioni. Ma, in verità, io non vedo per quale altra via si possa tentar il risanamento della scuola media italiana. Ciò che ho formulato in articoli di legge è nient?altro che il risultato degli studi e delle proposte fatte in questi ultimi anni dai competenti... cordialmente suo?. Ben conservata.

        A Noble Fragment: Being a Leaf of the Gutenberg Bible. With a Bibliographical Essay by A. Edward Newton

      New York: Gabriel Wells, 1921 The first substantial book printed in the West was, appropriately, the most important book written in the West, the Holy Bible. Johan Gutenberg, inventor of the art of printing with moveable type, began his Bible around 1462, probably completing it in Mainz in 1455, with his partners on the project, Johann Fust and Peter Schoeffer. The text was the standard Vulgate Latin of Saint Jerome, the Biblia Latina. This work is known among bibliographers as the 42-line Bible. The first book ever printed remains one of the most beautiful books ever printed, a testimony to the meticulous care and artistry that Gutenberg applied to the work. Full black morocco by Stikeman & Co., in black cloth slipcase. The leaf in this copy is folio 168, Volume I, from the Book of III Kings (modern I Kings) 10:5-11:27. Folio. Printed in Gothic type. Two-line Lombard initials in red and headlines and chapter number in alternating red and blue, capital strokes in red. Printed in Gothic type. Two-line Lombard initials in red and headlines and chapter number in alternating red and blue, capital strokes in red. The provenance of the Bible used in this leaf book is as follows: Maria Elisabeth Augusta von Sulbach (1722-1794), wife of Carl Theodore, Elector Prince of the Palatinate, subsequently Elector Prince of Bavaria; Mannheim Hoffbibliothek; Munich Royal Library (de-accessioned in 1832 as a duplicate); Robert Curzon, Baron Zouche (1810-1873) and bey descent until sold at Sotheby's, November 1920, lot 70 to Joseph Sabin; sold the same year to Gabriel Wells.

        Roosevelt Personally Writes a Child Hoping She Will Receive Treatment at Warm Springs

      Roosevelt Personally Writes a Child Hoping She Will Receive Treatment at Warm Springs.& & In 1921, 39-year-old Franklin D. Roosevelt seemed to face a future of unlimited success. But that same year he contracted polio, and was left paralyzed from the waist down. At the time there was no known cause of, or cure for, polio, and the practice of the day was to hide anyone with the disability away from the public eye. Roosevelt was a fighter and was determined to walk again, and found hope after hearing about a young polio victim who learned to walk again after swimming in the waters of a health spa at Warm Springs inear Atlanta. He moved there in 1924, and his initial cynicism about the run-down conditions and pitiable patients was gradually replaced by a deep empathy and understanding for the suffering of others, along with an optimism and inspiration that polio victims could be helped. When Warm Springs, a former resort area, faced economic hardship in 1926, FDR invested two-thirds of his savings to purchase it for $200,000, and created a therapeutic center under the direction of the Georgia Warm Springs Foundation. His facility opened its doors to patients all over the country, providing medical treatment and an opportunity to spend time with others suffering from the effects of polio. An enclosed pool funded by automotive pioneer Henry Ford's son Edsel was added, and improvements began to be made. Physicians and physiotherapists worked with Roosevelt to develop muscle exercises. The "spirit of Warm Springs" became firmly entrenched as patients relearned to function in society and to laugh and enjoy life.& & Roosevelt took a very personal interest in those who were afflicted with polio, many of whom were children. Lenora Burge, a ten year old, wrote him while he was serving as governor of New York, expressing her hope to go to Warm Springs, and he took the time to answer her personally.& & Typed Letter Signed on his Executive Chambers letterhead, Albany, November 14, 1932, to Lenora Burge. "Thank you very much for your delightful little note of October 31st and good wishes. I am very glad to know that you are so anxious to visit Warm Springs and I am asking Dr. Hoke, the physician in charge, to send you details of the place. I hope very much you may find it possible to take the treatment there. We do have a Patient's Aid Fund but the waiting list is a very large one. Since you are only eleven years old possibly some of the organizations in your vicinity such as the Elks, the Rotary, the Kiwanis, or similar organizations might assist in procuring the necessary funds."& & After his inauguration as president in 1933, FDR continued to visit Warm Springs and mingle with the patients there. He chose a secluded hillside near the springs to build a home, which soon became known as the Little White House. He died there in 1945.

        PAUL ELUARD: LES NECESSITES DE LA VIE ET LES CONSEQUENCES DES REVES - AN EXTRAORDINARY SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY

      (ELUARD, PAUL). Eluard, Paul. Preface by Jean Paulhan. PAUL ELUARD: LES NECESSITES DE LA VIE ET LES CONSEQUENCES DES REVES - AN EXTRAORDINARY SIGNED ASSOCIATION COPY. Signed Presentation Copy from the Author. Paris: au Sans Pariel, 1921. First Edition 1/600. 8vo. Printed Wrappers. Poetry Monograph. Very Good. 78pp, no illustrations. Text in French. "Les Nécessités de la Vie et Les Conséquences des Rêves" is Paul Eluard's 1921 collection of proto-surrealist poems and prose - one of the French literary titan's earliest publications. A handsome example of the uncommon au Sans Pareil first printing in an unprinted glassine jacket numbered 563 from the edition of six hundred copies on papier vélin bouffant BOLDLY INSCRIBED "a Paul Morand, aux fils de mon amitié, Paul Eluard" in black ink on the front free endpaper showing some typical age-toning to the pages along with a slight dent at the upper foredge corner. Hailing from a privileged cultural background, Paul Morand was a prolific writer well-known by Picasso and the Dada and Surrealist Circles in Paris between the wars. He is probably currently best remembered for having collaborated with Coco Chanel on her memoirs - as his views on race, anti-Semitism, and complicity with the Nazis during the Vichy occupation have left his literary reputation rather tarnished.
