        Patent Portable Umbrella Globe w/ Original Wood Box

      London, 1924. London or Liverpool, circa 1924-1925. Rare original Terrestrial Umbrella Globe, first designed in 1850 by John Betts and patented by him in 1856, this one made by George Philip & Son Ltd., one of Great Britain's leading 20th century globe producers, whom continued production after Betts' death. Housed in the original custom-made labeled wooden case with working brass clasp and hinges. Beautiful map of the world lithographed on eight coloured linen gores sewn to expand and fit over a black collapsing umbrella type globe frame with handle, brass ends and hook for suspension. Measurements: Equatorial circumference 48 inches, diameter 15.25 inches, height 71 inches. Wood case measures 29.5 x 3.25 x 3.25 inches (LxWxH). Loss of lettering on case, slight age toning to linen from the box, otherwise in Very Good Original Condition. Scarce. Cartouche Title: By The Queens Royal Letters Patent. Betts's New Portable Terrestrial Globe. Compiled from The Latest and Best Authorities. British Empire Coloured Red. London: George Philip & Son Ltd, 32 Fleet Street. Liverpool: Philip, Son & Nephew Ltd. 20 Church Street. Printed in Great Britain. John Betts, the masterful inventor of the collapsible umbrella globe, conceived and produced an unparalleled terrestrial globe design, its unique form and function finally providing ease of portability and demonstration of geography - an extraordinary and historical apparatus. A scarce acquisition in any form, this umbrella globe is in superb original condition, linen and components completely in tact, as issued with its original wood case labeled for the inventor. It's cartographic elements as intriguing as its unprecedented design, several now obsolete placenames are used; colonial possessions are indicated; Antarctic regions remain virtually uncharted. As early as 1798, Anglo-Irishman, Richard Lovell Edgeworth (writer, scientist, inventor and educationist), and his daughter, Maria Edgeworth (influential novelist and educationist), first proposed the idea of a practical and portable globe for teaching and lecturing, with a statement published in publication Practical Education, "Might not a cheap, portable, and convenient globe be made of oiled silk, to be inflated by a common pair of bellows?" Some forty years later, in around 1830, their request was first answered with the invention of the balloon globe, an object made of fabric gores stitched together, which was inflated with an air pump. An advantageous tool for geographers and professors alike, in 1850, John Betts designed an attractive and superior alternative which eliminated the air inflation process. Betts' "New Portable Globe" comprised of a lithographed map on linen, mounted on a pliable spherical metal frame expanding and contracting like an umbrella. In 1856 he was granted patent GB 1338 for "Collapsible Geographical Spheres." His invention offered convenient portability and large size for viewing details, two important features which sustained long term popularity. In fact, the umbrella globes remained in demand long after the inventor's living years. George Philip & Son, who took over Betts' firm after his passing, continued to produce new editions into the 1920s. Betts was conscientious in updating of his cartography, and as seen here, included details such as principal cities and areas of unique economic interest, tribal regions, and European colonies abroad. On this portable globe we find little northern Canadian townsite of Dawson City, in the center of the Klondike Gold Rush region which is also indicated. [Dawson City was settled in 1896, founded and named in January 1897 by Joseph Ladue, in honor of noted Canadian geologist George M. Dawson who had explored and mapped the region in 1887.] Some of the charting and colonial delineation shown on this map, which serve to date its manufacture and illustrate important geographical discoveries, are as follows: Saint Petersburg appears as "Petrograd (Leningrad)" suggesting that the map was produced in 1924 or 1925. [In 1914 the name of the city was changed from Saint Petersburg to Petrograd, and to Leningrad in 1924 after the death of Vladimir Lenin. In 1991 it would be renamed Saint Petersburg]. Norway's capital appears as "Christiania (Oslo)," reflecting the name change made January 1st 1925. In French Equatorial Africa (1910-1958) we find the "French Colony of Niger," a name which was in use from 1922 to 1958. A term seldom seen on charts, "Union of the Cape of Good Hope", illustrates the 1910 establishing of the Union of South Africa which was formed from the colonies of Cape of Good Hope, Transvaal, Natal and Orange River Colony. Though very little of Antarctica is charted, "Oates Land" is shown, being part of the Antarctic coastline discovered by the Terra Nova in February 1911. [Oates Land was named after Captain Lawrence Oates who famously walked out of the tent on the way back from the South Pole with Captain Scott in 1912. It is a region of the coast of Eastern Antarctica approximately between Cape Adare in the East and Mawson's Hut in the West.] A vestige of colonial exploration and territorial acquisition, obsolete place names are replete on this unusual world map, "Termination Barrier," for example, discovered by the 1838-1842 United States Exploring Expedition led by Charles Wilkes to the Antarctic Peninsula is now part of the Shackleton Ice Shelf. Further shown are the colonies of "French Cochinchina" established in 1862, British Honduras which became a British crown colony in 1862, Formosa which is now Taiwan, and others. Yos Sudarso Island in Papua province, Indonesia, is charted as "Frederick Henry Island" as it was named in the Dutch colonial period.. Very Good.

        Original self portrait sketch on a doily placed in an oval rough hewn wooden frame on a green background. The frame and painted back give the self portrait a folk art quality

      Covarrubias moved to New York on a grant from the Mexican Government in 1924. He is renown for his drawings that captured the cultural activity of the Harlem Renaissance in his book, "Negro Drawings." (1927). He was a regular illustrator on the covers for "Vanity Fair," "Vogue," and "The New Yorker," designed costumes for Josephine Baker, and generally popularized the art and cultures of the Americas and of Bali. He was interested in the ethnology of Mexican culture and posited that Mayan culture was preceded by Olmec culture, discounted at first but now known to be accurate. It is thought that his stylistic concerns drew him to study Mexican and also Balinese ethnography. Although still regarded as a caricaturist and illustrator since the majority of his output falls into these categories, Covarrubias is being reconsidered as a multidimensional Modernist working in many forms.

      [New York]: Provincetown Playhouse. 1924. Playbill for the Provincetown Playhouse production of All God's Chillun Got Wings by Eugene O'Neill. Octavo. Single sheet folded twice to form six pages. Fine. A program for the original run of this controversial 1924 play about a black man who aspires to be a lawyer but is abused by his white wife who is infected by society's racism. The production was immediately lambasted by critics and the public for miscegenation, most notably for a scene in which the wife kisses her husband's hand. An early play of O'Neill's featuring Paul Robeson who also starred in the revival of The Emperor Jones the same year and would soon solidifie his fame in Show Boat. The playbill includes a cast list along with small text pieces from W.E.B. DuBois ("The Negro and Our Stage"), John Masefield ("Tragedy"), a poem from Langston Hughes ("The Negro Speaks of Rivers"), and lyrics to the Negro spiritual that provides the play's title. Rare.

        Provincetown Playbill: A Leaflet Issued with Each New Production at the Provincetown Playhouse - Season 1923-24 No 5

      [New York]: Provincetown Playhouse. 1924. Playbill for the Provincetown Playhouse production of All God's Chillun Got Wings by Eugene O'Neill. Octavo. Single sheet folded twice to form six pages. Fine. A program for the original run of this controversial 1924 play about a black man who aspires to be a lawyer but is abused by his white wife who is infected by society's racism. The production was immediately lambasted by critics and the public for miscegenation, most notably for a scene in which the wife kisses her husband's hand. An early play of O'Neill's featuring Paul Robeson who also starred in the revival of The Emperor Jones the same year and would soon solidifie his fame in Show Boat. The playbill includes a cast list along with small text pieces from W.E.B. DuBois ("The Negro and Our Stage"), John Masefield ("Tragedy"), a poem from Langston Hughes ("The Negro Speaks of Rivers"), and lyrics to the Negro spiritual that provides the play's title. Rare. OCLC locates one copy. .

        THE FIRE IN THE FLINT (Signed)

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1924 - Signed. The first book by this important leader of the American civil rights movement. As a young man, he joined, at the behest of James Weldon Johnson, the national staff of the NAACP in 1909, in the association's early days. He was to become its Executive Secretary, and during his near 25 year tenure, it was he who really constructed the fight against segregation in public places. Of mixed race, his name is almost ironic -- as he could pass as a white man, and as such worked as an "undercover agent" for the NAACP investigating lynchings in the South.~White's first book, and one of the early products of the Harlem Renaissance, with a warm and personal inscription. Near Fine binding. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
