My heart went out to you that Wednesday on the first play - I have never known quite such a piece of hard luck - and to have lost the game would after that have been too much - I can't tell you the number of old grads from Bob Emmons down who came up & sympathized with you & me - & nearly all of them made the point that you had done your full share in the building up of the team, & that you share fully in final victory. I am sending you 'One Increasing Purpose' by Hutchinson - I like it & I think you will if you can get into it past the first 100 pages-- I expect to get to Aunt Margaret's on Thanksgiving Day at about noon & hope to find both you & Elliott - I take it you both will go back to school [Groton] that night. Write me details - I will return to Marion at 4 p.m. so on to let Ray & John have their Thanksgiving Dinner that night. Ever your affectionate Father." James Roosevelt broke his leg during his final year at Groton, ending his football career. He became an insurance executive, a position he left in 1937 to become secretary to his father in the White House. He was decorated for his service as a Marine in World War II.

(47) pp. A very beautiful copy of this lavish book, the best we have ever offered, especially fine and essentially pristine and near mint. A SUPERIOR COPY OF THE FIRST EDITION OF THIS BRILLIANT ILLUSTRATED BOOK. THIS IS THE BEST COPY OF THE BOOK THAT WE HAVE EVER BEEN ABLE TO OFFER. Perhaps Parrish's best work, and certainly a very scarce book in nice condition. As Parrish himself said, "The reason I wanted to illustrate THE KNAVE OF HEARTS was on account of the bully opportunity it gives for a very good time making the pictures. Imagination could run riot, bound down by no period, just good fun and all sorts of things." Quoted in Ludwig, p. 48. For sixty-five years Parrish worked in widely varied fields---book illustration, magazine illustration, posters and advertisements, paintings and murals---rendering realm of the imagination with sharp-focus realism. So well known and popular was his work F. Scott Fitzgerald , for example, described the reflection in a restaurant window as being the color of ‘Maxfield Parrish moonlight.’

        Rupert And The Magic Toy Man (SECOND EDITION)

      Sampson Low, Marston & Co, London. Second Edition. Hardcover. Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. From the Daily Express Rupert Little Bear Series. Undated but appears to be a Second Edition which was published in 1925, (only distinguished from the first by the lack of illustrated endpapers) with the first three 'Little Bear' Titles to the back board. Please see scans for details of description and email for additional scans. In Paper covered boards with a brown cloth spine - with a colour illustration laid on the front board with its brown bear patterned border. The illustration shows Rupert wearing blue and white talking to the Lizard who is holding a bicycle. Pages printed in blue, red or brown with one illustration to each page. Book - The book has been professionally restored with the text block re-stitched and rebound with plain pastedowns and endpapers in original illustrated paper covered boards. The boards are a little worn to corners and edges and there is some surface rubbing to the front illustration and faint residue of juvenile additions mostly to top and bottom edges. The back board is somewhat grubby and lightly marked but the illustration and lettering remain clear and bright. The text is generally clean and bright with just the very occasional light mark and patch of surface abrasion, where it appears a previous owner was rather enthusiastic when erasing pencil inscriptions. This is especially true of the last page which shows Belinda, Rupert & Susan holding hands and is slightly browned as well as showing the indentations of erased inscriptions. An attractive 2nd edition copy of this early Rupert story. Size: 9.75 inches tall by 7.5 inches. Unpaginated. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 201-750 grams. Category: Fiction; Children.

A private family album documenting two of the tours of the celebrated yacht Ara, owned by William K. Vanderbilt II. Although Vanderbilt published numerous volumes recording his cruises, these voyages do not appear among his published logs. The photographs are captioned by his daughter Muriel, who records numerous details in a neat hand. The cast of characters in 1925 includes "Pops" (Wm. K. Vanderbilt II), "Self" (Muriel), her sister Consie (Consuelo), Muriel's fiancE Freddy (Frederic C. Church, Jr., whom she married in July 1925 and divorced in 1929), Ellen, & Dick. Muriel's uncle Harry (Harold S. Vanderbilt) makes a walk-on appearance in Key West. Among the party's activities was fishing, with more than a dozen photographs showing the sisters working the rod, members of the party with the morning's catch (variously tuna, barracuda, shark, and a sea turtle), and portraits of the three young ladies, Dick, and Freddy, each holding a trophy catch. The 1930 cruise to Haiti, Jamaica, and Cuba, with a party including Muriel, "Pops", Rosie (his second wife, Rosamund), and Tony, comprises views from the yacht and at ports of call, as well as many scenes of rafting on the Rio Grande River and a few snapshots of fishing on the Demaji River (where the log details three days of successful tarpon fishing, not illustrated). The group of post cards includes scenes in Cuba, Haiti, Lake Tahoe, and the Monterey coast in California, including several real photo cards of the Pebble Beach area, among them a shot of woman golfer Marion Hollins on the 7th Green. A window into a lost world of private travel and an excellent visual record of two Vanderbilt family cruises, with good sporting content
