        New Hampshire.

      Henry Holt, New York 1923 - First edition of the author's first Pulitzer Prize-winning collection. Octavo. Fine in a very good dust jacket with a chip to the front panel. Inscribed by the author, "But I have promises to keep Robert Frost For Herbert Kenney Breadloaf August 1956." One of Frost's most well-known works, one that includes "Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening." Robert Frost's collection of poems is a creative glance into quintessential rural New England life. The author spent his life in the area, and his writing reflects a passionate appreciation. The collections include the much lauded "Fire and Ice," "Nothing Gold Can Stay," and "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," and the illustrations for the collection were drawn by J.J. Lankes. In 1923, these poems won Frost the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Astonished, yea even affrighted, at this citation, I replied in a faltering tone, "In the name of the Lord, what art thou?" Thus adjured, the voice answered and said, "I am an atom."

        Frontier Times - Eight Bound Volumes, 1923-1939

      J. Marvin Hunter, Bandera, Texas 1923 - Near fine original Frontier Times magazines beautifully bound in a red half leather and black half leather with gilt print on spines. In solid bindings, no cracked or loose hinges! Eight large bound volumes in all, it appears the first leather bound volume labeled Vol.1, 1-12 and Vol.2, 1-12 is labeled incorrectly. In examining the leather bound volume, we find it has Vol. 1, 1-12 but not Vol.2, 1-12. Instead it has Vol. 3, 1-12 in place of Vol. 2, 1-12. So, there are two sets of Vol. 3, 1-12 but no Vol. 2, 1-12. The remaining volumes appear to be complete runs from 1-12. This is a great set of original Frontier Times magazines starting at Vol.I and ending at Vol. 16 with the exception, as explained, of Vol. 2. They span the years 1923 to 1939. Mr. Hunter published his periodical during a time when early Texas settlers, pioneers, cattlemen, and observers of the events of Texas history were still alive and able to tell their stories. These magazines are highly sought after and are of almost unparalleled value to historians, authors, collectors and genealogists. They are rich in first-hand accounts of formative pioneer events. There is no modern revisionism here just the facts: bold, bloody and accurate. Please note; these are heavy books totaling 36 1/4 pounds, shipping will be quoted on these eight volumes as to your location. EXCEPTIONAL! [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Elliott's Last Legacy: Secrets of the King of All Kard Kings. Many tricks that have mystified the best Magicians of the world, Laid bare for the first time, together with many novel inventions, Taken from note books left by Dr. James William Elliott

      New York: Adams Press Print. 1923. First. First edition. Illustrations by Oscar S. Teale. Compiled by Clinton Burgess. Binding lightly worn at the extremities, tidemark from a dampstain at the top corner of the pages throughout, front hinge tender but still a sound, very good copy. Illustrator Oscar S. Teale's copy with his "Teale Library of Mystery" bookplate and Inscribed to him by Houdini: "Presented by the Author -- Houdini -- to the Magician Artist who made all the drawings, Oscar S. Teale." Teale for his part, has Inscribed the book to a fellow magician: "Presented to Lester A. Grimes by O.S.T." Grimes has then Inscribed the book: "To my friend Gertrude Elliott from Grimes The Mystery Man, 1934." Reportedly, on his deathbed Elliott, the world's foremost card manipulator, asked his friend Houdini to edit and publish these notes. Whether the final recipient, Gertrude Elliott, was the famous stage actress (who was the original Cleopatra in Shaw's Caesar and Cleopatra), or a relative of the "Kard King" we are unsure. An extraordinary association copy, nicely inscribed by three prominent magicians. .

        THE VEGETABLE OR FROM PRESIDENT TO POSTMAN

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1923 - Fitzgerald's last book published before his masterpiece THE GREAT GATSBY which had a print run of 20,870 copies while this book had only 7,650 published. As with the better known GATSBY, this title, Fitzgerald's only published full-length play, also explores the American Dream but here with more comic intent and more pathetic results. The main character, Jerry Frost, strives to be President of the United States, if he is unable to make it as a postman. The quotation Fitzgerald places on the center of the title page sums it up: "Any man who doesn't want to get on in the world, to make a million dollars, and maybe even park his toothbrush in the White House, hasn't got as much to him as a good dog has -- he's nothing more or less than a vegetable."

        Das Muttergottesspiel. In einem Vorspiel und siebzehn Bildern [.] gewidmet dem Herrn geistlichen Rat und Pfarrer Florian Hartmann zum goldenen Priesterjubiläum [.]". Eigenh. Manuskript der Urfassung mit zahlreichen eh. Streichungen, Überarbeitungen, Korrekturen und U.

      "beg. [.] 3. Aug. 1923 in Erl" und "beendet 8. Dez. 1923, 7h abends". - (1), 130 num., einseitig beschr. Bll. (mit einem zusätzlichen Bl. fol. 32a). Lose Blatt. 8vo. Wohl die erste, mit zahlreichen Überarbeitungsspuren versehene Fassung des erst 1928 im Druck erschienenen Tiroler Marienspiels. Der ursprüngliche Titel "Das Erler Muttergottesspiel" wurde vom Autor - wie an der Tilgung des Adjektivs zu erkennen - zugunsten des kürzeren fallengelassen. Der volkstümliche Schriftsteller entstammte einer Südtiroler Bergführerfamilie, trat nach einem Studium in Brixen 1892 in den Redemptoristenorden ein und setzte seine Studien nach der Priesterweihe in Wien fort. Als Lehrer an Ordensschulen sowie als Missionsprediger im In- und Ausland tätig, war Innerkofler nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg ein "Vorkämpfer seiner Landsleute in Südtirol u. ihrer deutschen Kultur" (Kosch II, 1114). Beiliegend ein eh. Br. von Hermann Pfaschbach [?], einem der Organisatoren der Uraufführung des Stückes, das, so der Wunsch des Autors, durch seine und die Mithilfe von Pfarrer Ortner "in Erl in gelungener Weise zur Aufführung gelangen" sollte. Der Pfarrer Ortner selbst habe "im Kriege als Feldkurat viele Auszeichnungen und große Beliebtheit erlangt; er hat selbst wiederholt Bühnenstücke geschrieben, welche auf der von ihm wiedererrichteten Volksbühne in seinem Pfarrorte Ebbs mit viel Erfolg aufgeführt wurden und werden" (Br. v. 29.VI. 1928). - Bl. 82 in der Foliierung übersprungen, der Text selbst ist jedoch vollständig, da mit Bl. 81 das 11. Bild endet und mit Bl. 83 das 12. beginnt; Randläsuren; etwas angestaubt und vereinzelt gebräunt. - Vgl. Giebisch/G. 174. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

From 1923 through 1936 Tenggren worked for the game and book publisher Milton Bradley. In 1936 he was hired by The Walt Disney Company to work as an art director on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Tenggren gave Snow White an "Old World" look that Walt Disney sought, and despite being minor characters in the original by the Brothers Grimm the dwarfs took on new life in Disney's story, with Tenggren's presentation drawing depicting the major characteristics of each of the seven. His Rackham-style trees featured prominently in the forest scenes.Marie-Catherine Le Jumel de Barneville, Baroness d'Aulnoy (1650/1651–4 January 1705), also known as Countess d'Aulnoy, was a French writer known for her fairy tales. When she termed her works contes de f?es (fairy tales), she originated the term that is now generally used for the genre.
