Title printed in red and black within decorative border in black and gray, thirteen head-piece vignettes, twelve large decorative initials in black and gray, and twelve decorative tail-pieces, all specially designed for this edition by Pierre Courtois. Text within triple lilac rule. Translated by Ch. Guyot.Original tan pictorial wrappers. A fine copy.Contains twelve of the twenty-two fairy tales in the English edition: Fleur-de-Neige (Snowdrop), Hansel et Gretel (Hansel and Gretel), Cerise ou La Grenouille Mariée (Cherry, or The Frog Bride), Le Pêcheur et sa Femme (The Fisherman and His Wife), Rose-d‚Épine (Rosebud), La Gardeuse d‚Oies (The Goose Girl), Noir-de-Fumée (Catskin), Saute-Menu (Rumpelstiltskin), Le Vaillant Petit Tailleur (The Valiant Little Tailor), Les Cygnes Blancs (The Six Swans), Le Genévrier (The Juniper Tree), and Les Deux Frères (The Two Brothers). This edition contains the same twelve color plates as the English edition, but not the ten black and white plates. However, it does contain decorative title border, head- and tail-piece vignettes, and initials not found in the English edition.Danish illustrator and designer Kay Nielsen (1886-1957) "was drawn early on to fairy tales and illustrated many volumes for Hodder & Stoughton: In Powder and Crinoline (1913), East of the Sun, West of the Moon (1914), Hans Andersen’s Fairy Tales (drawings completed in 1912, but first published in 1924), Hansel and Gretel (1925), and Red Magic (Jonathan Cape, 1930), a collections of fairy tales from around the world. Nielsen’s designs unite strong linearity with delicate colouring Characterized by a sense of two-dimensional flatness, Nielsen’s objects and people are highly stylized: foxglove blossoms hang in measured asymmetry; princes and princesses stand on improbably long legs; and their garments billow in gravity-defying parabolas. The power of his illustrations lies in his uncanny ability to retrieve a story’s emotional effect on its reader and to recreate it visually in two dimensions" (The Oxford Companion to Fairy Tales).

        The Writings of William Blake. In Three Volumes. With: The Pencil Drawings of William Blake.

      The Nonesuch Press, London - 1925 (1927 for the Pencil Drawings volume). One of 1500 copies, number 937 (perhaps, the last two numbers are somewhat illegible). Number 1337 of 1550 copies of The Pencil Drawings of William Blake. The writings are bound in marbled boards with cream colored vellum spines. 11 by 8 inches. The Pencil drawing volume is ¾ cloth with beige paper covered boards, measuring 11 5/8 by 9 ½ inches. All housed in tri-folding cloth cases within red cloth slipcases having red leather spines. Titles in gilt on the spines, with five raised bands. Pagination for the writings as follows: xviii, 364; vii, 397; vii, 430 pp. All plates present as called for. The pencil drawing volume is paginated xvi, followed by 82 plates with a page of text preceding each. Complete as issued. A comprehensive gathering of poems, letters and annotations to various people, including Swedenborg, by William Blake, accompanied by many of his illustrations. These writings and illustrations document his artistic vision, both through his finished works and through his thoughts conveyed in his letters. William Blake was a British poet, artist and printmaker, overlooked during his lifetime, but now considered to be one of Britain's best artists. Blake created prophetic poetry and visual arts, often mixing words and images, and which perhaps led many of his contemporaries to consider him mad. Books in GOOD+ to VERY GOOD condition. Spines rather browned and foxed, with minor foxing to the page edges and endpapers. Volume two and three with moderate foxing to the endpapers. General fading to the covers. The Pencil Drawing volume has moderate to heavy foxing to the endpapers, with minor scattered foxing throughout, mostly along the fore edge. Pages intermittently unopened throughout. The tri-folds and slipcases all bear some scuffing, minor soiling and general fading/uneven darkening, most noticeable along the hinges. Leather spines of the slipcases with some scuffs and a few small chips missing. Faint dampstain/area of discoloration to the lower edge of the slipcase of volume 3. The slipcase on the drawing volume is rather mottled along the extremities. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

As far as we know there is one original in the Library Of Congress in the copyright collection and seven others with the same provenance as ours, now in a private television museum. We know of no others in public or private collections. [Sybil Almand] transmitted Photograph circa 1923: 4 1/2” x 2 13/16”, image 3 3/8” x 2 3/8”. Verso stamped in purple ink: “ This photograph was sent /and received by Radio./ Jenkins Laboratories/Washington, D.C.” [Black and white photograph, head and shoulders image of Sybil Almand] Sybil Almand was on the staff of Jenkins Laboratories and, hence, was one of the first television researchers in the world. She may have been the first woman involved in television research but this needs further research. Photograph reproduced in Jenkin's 1925 book, Vision By Radio, on page [19]. On page 17, it states: “ This and succeeding pages are examples of photographs received by radio from a distance by the Jenkins system, some of them from Washington to Philadelphia, and represent the best work done in 1922, 1923, and 1924. “ The two transmitted "radiovision" photographs are unique and incredibly important in science and history of television. Capt Kurado transmitted Photograph circa 1923: 2 13/16” x 3 7/16”, closed tear in blank space to right of text 5/8” long. ”. Front Japenese character roughly translate to "On September 26, 1923, I visited to observe the radio transmission of a high-speed motion picture at ?? of Mr. Jenkins. Kuroda". Verso stamped in blue ink: “ This photograph was/ sent and received by Radio/ Time/Distance/Radio Pictures Corp./Washington, D.C.” Manuscript inscription in black ink in C. Francis Jenkins’ hand: “ First/ Japanese Radio/ message in/ native characters/sig. Capt Kurado “ Similar photograph reproduced in Jenkin's 1925 book, Vision By Radio, on page at page 38: Black and white photograph of a similar text in Japanese calligraphy, but our copy is NOT this text pictured on page 38 JENKINS' INSCRIBED BOOK: JENKINS, C.[harles] Francis. 1925. Vision By Radio. Radio Photographs. Radio Photograms. Washington, D.C.: Jenkins Laboratories, Inc. Dark green cloth, 8vo, gilt titles. (6), half title leaf, title leaf, frontis, [3], 4-139 pp., [140]. The front endpaper with the following inscription in ink: “ Mr & Mrs John Tonkin In appreciations of their interest in the author's work C.Francis Jenkins, Sept 1st. 1927" It is believed these two original photographs were laid in loosely at the pages where the image was reproduced in Jenkin's own copy of his book, Vision By Radio. Radio Photographs. Radio Photograms. 1925 HISTORICAL CONTEXT OF TWO PHOTOS & SIGNED BOOK OFFERED: Charles Francis Jenkins ( 1867-1934) is recognized as the earliest major American television pioneer. Albert Abramson, whose History Of Television, 1880 To 1941 is recognized as authoritative, tells us that as early as 1894, C. Francis Jenkins wrote an article about a device for transmitting pictures by electricity. Using the prismatic ring approach to mechanical television, which Jenkins invented, it was reported that he transmitted the image of a woman by radio on June 14, 1923. Abramson says “Whether ‘live’ or a photograph, this was the first transmission of television by radio ever reported.” ( page 60). Others, such as Bingley give credit both to Jenkins and Baird as the first to demonstrate actual television images, in 1925. However before the transmission of a Dutch wind mill moving in 1925, Jenkins and others state that he was transmitting photographs by radio in 1922, 1923, and 1924.

        Two Autograph Letters, Signed, to collector Norman James of Baltimore, Maryland, March 30 and April 17, [1925], discussing sporting books and prints, The Natural History of the Ducks, and Phillips' idea for a bibliography of American sporting books

      Wenham, Massachusetts, march 30 and april 17, [1925] - To the noted collector of sporting and color-plate books Norman James, of 300 Goodwood Road, Roland Park (see catalogues of his library, sold at Anderson Galleries, November13-23, 1928). From the first letter, dated March 30: "You gave me a wonderful afternoon yesterday and I shall long remember your house and that view - I'm looking over my few prints (about 38) and find the following which I don't remember seeing with you, although most likely you have them stowed away among those we didn't have time for: 'Snipes' drawn by J. Herring - (no date but looks very old); Wild Duck Shooting - A Good Day's Sport' N. Currier 1854 - a very fine one and I've never seen it except this one copy (large) Two figures by L. O. Earll, Pub by A.C. Zink 1880. Man with new breach loader talking to old market hunter with muzzle loader & ducks on back. "Another thing I'd like to see would be a catalogue of the old American books on sport. [Charles] Sheldon and you also would have about all of these, and I have a fair lot, but mine are more along old Am. books on birds and mammals. Guess you think I'm catalogue mad & think I will be by the time I get out the bibliog. for the duck book. - Hope to get away for west end of Alaska Penin in early May." For the privately distributed sets of his monumental Natural History of the Ducks, a finely illustrated work in four volumes, Phillips issued a separately printed Bibliography in an edition of 75 copies. The second letter, dated April 17, begins "I'm proud to think I have one or two American prints that you have not. The only worth while one is the large duck shooting picture -" Phillips also mentions The Natural History of the Ducks: "If you think of any duck 'cranks' who would be worth circularizing for my duck book, I wish you'd let me know -." Phillips did indeed pursue his idea for a catalogue: his Bibliography of American Sporting Books drew upon the library of Charles Sheldon and was published in 1930. It remains an essential reference 8vo. 1-1/2 pp.; 1 p., pen and ink on Windyknob stationery. Old folds. Fine
