        Autographed Note, Signed, (Ans)

      Sierra Madre California, 1921. Manuscript. Very good. One page. Ferris writes to O. W. Coursy of Mitchell S.D., discussing the scarcity of "The Bad Lands Cowboy", the Medora newspaper that was published when he was ranching with Roosevelt in the 1880s. The office was burned and Ferris is unaware of any copies. He had offered $5.00 for any copy the previous year without success. Sylvan Ferris was TR's foreman on his ranch in the Badlands of North Dakota. The devastating winter of 1886-87, cost TR dearly, losses totaled about sixty percent of his cattle. In 1890, Roosevelt turned the ranch entirely over to his foreman Sylvan Ferris and in 1898 sold Ferris the ranch and buildings. A rare autographed note with content dealing with the Roosevelt period in the West. An extraordinary find.

        A.A. Milne pens about Dover Road and Pims , his plays which pooh-pooh romantic love

      Chelsea, UK, March 5, [1921]. 4.5" x 6". "Single page ALS, signed in full signature ""A.A. Milne"" and dated ""March 5th"" (circa 1921) . 4.5""x 6"" on stationary with letterhead of 11, Mallord Street, Chelsea, S.W.3. Tel Kensington 2074. Expected center fold. Near fine condition.A lovely Milne ALS referencing both the upcoming play produced from his book ""The Dover Road"", in addition to noting that another play he wrote, ""Pim"", is being translated into Italian. The Dover Road, originally on Broadway late in 1921, was recently revived by Close Quarter Productions, in association with Jermyn Street Theatre in New York. The premise of the play is fascinating: a rich and somewhat eccentric gentleman intercepts eloping couples, making them prisoners in his mansion for a week to determine whether they really are well suited for one another.Milne's letter also touches upon his other play, ""Mr. Pim Passes By"", another delightful comedy in classic Milne style, performed in 1919/1920. Once again he touches upon the complexities of relationships, and the hidden agendas and manipulations that can ensue. This delightful comedy tells of what happens in a very conventional English home when appealing little Mr. Pim, who has so much trouble with names, drops in one day on a small matter of business. The business is soon forgotten when Mr. Pim announces that the former husband of the lady of the house, thought to be deceased, is alive. Since the lady is married now, she is a bigamist. Her present husband, always a trifle pompous and tyrannical, is upset no end. Then Mr. Pim passes by again; this time he confesses that he confused two names and it is safe to assume that the lady's first husband is dead, as they originally believed. Without telling her husband, the lady uses the knowledge as a weapon not only to get what she wants in the house but to force her husband to permit his niece to marry the young artist who loves her.Milnes letter to Seligman (Vincent Seligman), references his two plays along with Milne's classic jocular, but lamenting comment ""None of my books has been translated into Italian, but the play Pim is about to be. If any Italian publisher wants the books he can go ahead; or rather let him step forward with a million lire in his hand.""Little did he know that in his not so distant future, and in just a few short years he would experience sky rocketing success as the author of the infamous Winnie The Pooh stories, and ultimately would see his novels translated into most every language imagined!

      1921. Hi, This lot is a set of 14 rebound Wisdens all of them are rebound with covers. This Wisden set is in Good to Very Good condition. The boards are a bit of a mix but I have tried to make them as similar as possible so all are a reddish brown, all the books are in decent shape and a good but not mint set. Some notes are that the 1930 has a mark to the front cover, 1927 has a LCCC stamp to the bottom of the front cover, 1926 is a bit dark, 1923 a bit tatty and the 1925 has a cup mark to the cover. The 1932 may have a facsimile front cover , it feels facsimile but odd to see that in a rebind. They are all excellent internally all with photoplates, a great value for money set. 7/10s on average. Subject to availability I can swap any book inside this run or extend or slightly reduce the run for a different cost, please enquire for details.

        Fete Carnaval 1921

      Imp. Gandini, Nice 1921 - A rollicking cover illustration of a Pantagruel type astride a flamingo and a crowd of clowns and masqueraders below, perfecting evoking the joyful anarchy of Carnaval, and within, an eight panel panorama and program. Wraps are 27 by 19 cm, and the panels within are of slighly smaller dimension, with a total length, when stretched out, of 160 cm. Depicted on the panorama is a colorful parade of floats and various comical figures, with everything drawn with a deliberately crude, or naive, pen and brush that heightens the farcical flavor of the rendering. This panoramic brochure was issued as a souvenir for the Nice Carnaval, the pre-Lent celebration with roots in Nice going back to the Middle Ages and for which Nice had become famous, perhaps second only to the Carnaval of Venice, which in a number of ways Nice emulated. A parade to celebrate Carnaval was first done in 1873, and it is the parade that is the core of what is depicted here. It is unknown whether this program was issued for a particular event, or what seems more probable, as a more general souvenir. Scarce, with no copies of this edition of what was an annual located on OCLC, and only a few copies found of any edition (the 1898, 1899 and 1906 editions, one copy each: Bibliotheque Nationale; 1907 edition, two copies: Bayerische Staatsbibliotheque and the Deutsche Nationalbibliotheque). Wraps are soiled. Discrete tape repair running along the "joint". Endpapers and rear cover are filled with evocative ads. Several flattened creases, short closed tears and minor chips. The panorama itself is very well preserved with no significant issues. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

A fine book, near fine dustwrapper and slipcase. Decorative endpapers, pictorial title page, six pochoir colour plates in Art Deco style. The fifth Barbier almanac, a note to the reader tells us that this will be the final volume in the series of almanacs. Guirlandes des Mois is a series of almanacs produced by Jules Maynial and illustrated by George Barbier, the delightful little books (five in total) were published annually between 1917 - 1921. Barbier was a keen book collector and his own collection included a series of seventeenth - early nineteenth century almanacs and it was this collection which inspired the design of the Guirlandes. The books contain an anthology of writings, bank pages for notes and a calendar. The illustrations are beautifully delicate, with covers, dustwrappers and box all containing different drawings. Beginning in the war years many of the illustrations reflect the times, with images of soldiers on leave wooing elegant young women. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
