        Belgian King Albert I writes a letter of state announcing the marriage of Prince Leopold III to Princess Astrid of Sweden. Albert played a crucial role in World War I, and his son Leopold, likewise, in World War II. Queen Astrid died tragically in an automobile accident with Leopold behind the wheel

      Document Signed ?Albert? (6.75" x 8.75") is signed by King Albert l of Belgium, announcing the marriage of his son, Leopold III, to Princess Astrid, dated Brussels, November 10, 1926, written in French to an unknown recipient. At bottom, faded light blue penciled notation, possibly in Spanish, folded in half, otherwise fine condition.Albert I, 1875?"1934, King of the Belgians (1909?"34), was nephew and successor of Leopold II. In World War I his heroic resistance (1914) to the German invasion of Belgium greatly helped the Allied cause. Albert spent the entire war at the head of his army, and in 1918 he led the Allied offensive that recovered the Belgian coast. The king and queen did much to improve social conditions in Belgium and in the Belgian Congo. Albert's democratic and affable ways won him great regard at home and abroad. He died in a rock-climbing accident and was succeeded by his son, Leopold III. His daughter, Marie José, married the crown prince (later King Umberto II) of Italy. Leopold III, 1901?"83, King of the Belgians (1934?"51), was son and successor of Albert I. In 1936, Leopold announced a fundamental change in foreign policy; Belgium abandoned its military alliance with France in favor of a return to neutrality. In May, 1940, Germany?"which in 1937 had guaranteed Belgian neutrality?"invaded the Low Countries. Leopold led the Belgian army in resisting the invaders. After the defense became hopeless, Leopold, over the opposition of his cabinet, surrendered unconditionally (May 28), thus provoking accusations of treason. A prisoner of war at his castle at Laken, Leopold refused to exercise an active rule under German tutelage. After his first wife, Astrid, was killed in an automobile accident while Leopold was at the wheel, he married (1941) a commoner, whom he later created princess of Réthy. Removed (1944) to Germany, Leopold was freed by Allied troops in 1945. His return to Belgium was a burning political issue. The Liberal and leftist parties accused him of cooperation with Nazi Germany and of fascist sympathies, and his main support came from the Catholic Conservatives. In 1945, Leopold was barred from returning without the permission of the parliament. He spent his exile mostly in Switzerland while his brother, Prince Charles, acted as regent. A referendum held in 1950 favored the king's return by a slight majority. However, Leopold's arrival in Belgium was followed by such unrest that he transferred the royal powers to his eldest son, Baudouin. In July, 1951, Leopold formally abdicated.Astrid of Sweden (Astrid Sofia Lovisa Thyra of Sweden; 17 November 1905 ?" 29 August 1935) was Queen of the Belgians as the wife of King Leopold III. They married n Stockholm, on 4 November 1926 civilly and religiously in Brussels on 10 November, It was a happy and devoted marriage. Astrid was enthusiastically adopted by the Belgians. She was widely loved for her beauty, charm and simplicity. In 1927, Leopold and Astrid had a daughter, Princess Josephine-Charlotte, and in 1930, their first son, Prince Baudouin (who eventually succeeded his father as King of the Belgians). At age 29, Queen Astrid was killed in a car accident in the mountains of Switzerland, on 29 August 1935, King Leopold III was at the wheel.

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom a triumph

      [London: Privately Printed, 1926. One of about 170 "Complete" copies for subscribers, inscribed on p. xix "Complete copy. 1.XII.26 TES.", with a manuscript correction to the list of illustrations. Also signed by the printer, H.G. Hodgson, at the end. Printed in red and black. Illustrated with 66 plates, including frontispiece portrait of Feisal by Augustus John, many colored or tinted, 4 double-page, by Eric Kennington, William Roberts, Augustus John, William Nicholson, Paul Nash and others, 4 folding colored maps (with original linen backing), 58 illustrations in text, one colored, by Roberts, Nash, Kennington, Blair-Hughes-Stanton, Gertrude Hermes and others, initials by Edward Wadsworth. In this copy, page XV is mis-paginated as VIII. 1 vols. 4to. Tan morocco gilt, gilt-lettered and ruled, edges gilt, by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Fine copy. 'very long, and rather dull' : Subscriber Copy, with Fine A.L.s. to the Subscriber Lawrence's superb narrative of the Arab Revolt of 1916-1918. Invited by Sir Ronald Storrs to the British organized conference at Jiddah, Lawrence impressed the Arab leaders, and thereafter played his spectacular role as the revolt succeeded, entering into the mythology of the twentieth century. His account is itself one of the legendary books of the century, elaborately produced and illustrated with works commissioned by Lawrence. The present copy includes the "Prickly Pear" plate, but not the two Paul Nash illustrations called for on pages 92 and 208, or the Blair-Hughes-Stanton wood engraving that in some copies illustrated the dedicatory poem. With a remarkable and revealing clutch of correspondence about the author and his book, addressed to the original owner, Mrs. Colin (Nancy) Campbell: 1. LAWRENCE, T.E. Autograph Letter, signed ("Yours very truly, TE Shaw, used to be Lawrence"), Cranwell, Lincolnshire, England, 16 September 1926. Two pages, recto and verso of a single leaf, with the mailing envelope addressed in Lawrence's hand. Lawrence is plainly trying to win a subscriber but his tone is almost hostile: "owing to a misunderstanding, I had to offer to accept two clients of Messrs Sotheran as subscribers for the limited edition of my reprinted war-book ... Sotherans in reply gave me your name and another. I have delayed to write until the date of publication was reasonably certain. ... It will not inconvenience me in the least (quite the contrary!) if you decide not to take your copy. The book costs thirty guineas: is very long, and rather dull." A FASCINATING LETTER. 2. JOYCE, Colonel Pierce C. Two Autograph Letters, signed. Substantial letters from Col. Pierce Joyce, another key officer in the Arab revolt, and a friend of Mrs. Campbell and her late husband. The first is written from Baghdad in 1925, 28 December 1925 (signed "P.C. Joyce"). 8 pp., with original envelope. "A man just from England came in to see us yesterday & tells me he hears Lawrence is about to destroy all existing copies of his book & rewrite it again this year or next - worse than ever!" Joyce also tells Mrs. Campbell about the forthcoming book, and how he wrote Lawrence "and demanded a copy of his book as being his chief supporter in the Arabian gamble." Joyce figures prominently in Seven Pillars and there is a portrait of him by Dobson, which Joyce disliked, as he notes in the other letter. The second is written from Galway, 12 October 1927 (signed "Pierce Joyce"). 3 pp. Discussion about a future visit and Seven Pillars. "I should like to kill Frank Dobson for his Hogarthian drawing of myself & yet when I met him the other day the homicidal initiative was lacking!" & "I love your enthusiasm over 'The Seven Pillars,' if you could only have seen nature's setting to the pictures he paints in his beautiful English it would have been the ideal." 3. PIKE, Roy Manning, printer of the 1926 Seven Pillars. Two Letters, Signed ("Manning Pike"), from London, the first a Typed Letter, 8 [August] 1927, one page, about shipping; the second, an Autograph Letter, 15 August 1927. One page, enclosing a second copy of Some Notes on the Writing of the Seven Pillars of Wisdom by T.E. Shaw (O'Brien A039, 200 copies), present, and discussing the customs declaration for Seven Pillars at 30 guineas. 4. CAMPBELL, Nancy. Two Drafts: Autograph Letter, Signed ("N. Campbell, Mrs. Colin Campbell") to T.E. Lawrence ("Sir"). Campbell Ranch, Goleta, California, 30 October [1926]. 2pp., 8vo. Mrs. Campbell writes about her excitement to be a subscriber. "Thank you very much for allowing me to have the privilege of subscribing." Autograph Letter, Signed ("N.C.") to Messrs. Manning Pike, on letterhead of The Drake hotel, Chicago, undated. 3 pp., arranging shipping of her copy of Seven Pillars.

        Charmes, 1926, ex libris ou ex dono d? Antoine de Saint Exupéry

      Gallimard 1926 Antoine de Saint Exupery fut engagé en 1926 par la compagnie Latécoère (future Aéropostale) et transporta le courrier de Toulouse au Sénégal . A partir de septembre 1929, il rejoignit Mermoz et Guillaumet en Amérique du Sud pour contribuer au développement de l?Aéropostale jusqu?en Patagonie jusqu?au 31 mars 1931 date de sa liquidation judiciaire. Chargé tout d'abord de la création de la ligne de Patagonie, jusqu'à Punta Arenas, comme directeur de l'Aeroposta Argentina, il vola beaucoup sur les Latécoère 25, 26 ou Potez 25 et 29, pour effectuer toutes les reconnaissances nécessaires à la création de sa ligne et à l'établissement de ses escales. Tout d? abord, la page de garde de cette édition originale de Paul Valery comporte indubitablement la signature d? Antoine de Saint Exupery avec son écriture si particulière. Ensuite, la page de garde de ce livre comporte le tampon de Juan Toth gérant de l' hôtel Cosmos de Punta Arenas. Cet homme a acheté cet hôtel à la fin des années 20 période où Saint Exupery pris la direction de la l' Aeroposta Argentina et créa la ligne de Patagonie entre Commodo Rivadavia et Punta Arenas. Ce livre a été la propriété du célèbre auteur au cours d?une période d?une durée incertaine pouvant débuter en 1926 jusqu?à son transfert de possession volontaire ou involontaire à la fin des années 20 ou en 1930 ou 1931 . Il est à noter qu? en 1930, Saint Exupéry utilise la bibliothèque de son ami Paul Dony pour commettre divers sonnets inspirés d?autres poètes mais qui sont autant d?exercices de virtuosité poétique. Ensuite, Il publie Courrier Sud chez Gallimard qui est un succès commercial en France. En Décembre 1931, il publie son second roman, Vol de nuit, un immense succès, dans lequel il évoque ses années en Argentine et le développement des lignes vers la Patagonie. La reliure en très bon état est en demi chagrin avec un dos à deux nerfs orné d? une pièce de titre gravée à l?or fin . Les plats d? origine ont été conservés. L? intérieur contient l? édition originale de Charmes sur vélin publié par Gallimard en 1926 (n°5300).

        The Meynellian Science or Fox Hunting Upon System

      n.p.: Privately Printed for Ernest R. Gee[at the Press of August Becker, Brooklyn], 1926. Large Paper. One of 28 copies on Large Paper. Frontispiece portrait by Gordon Ross. Title-page vignette of a foxhound. [vi], 24, [2] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Original cloth-backed boards, printed paper label on front cover. An immaculate copy in its original glassine dust jacket (spine of which is partially gone). Bookplate. In custom quarter crimson and cloth slipcase with leather label on upper cover. Large Paper. One of 28 copies on Large Paper. Frontispiece portrait by Gordon Ross. Title-page vignette of a foxhound. [vi], 24, [2] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. COPY NUMBER ONE. Inscribed by Gee "To Mr. Wilson S. Mills / with the compliments of / Ernest R. Gee / New York / April 1945." While there is disagreement as to whether this volume is one of the Derrydale Press works, Frazier states: "But the book and its design, paper, binding, and style, are so obviously Derrydale in spirit and influence, that one has only to put itside by side with Connett's American Trout Streams...produced the same year, 1926, or Connett's own Magic Hours, produced the following year, to see how this book and the books of the Press came together. The only question would be whether Ernest Gee had more influence on Connett in 1926, or whether Connett had more influence on Gee in this important year when, together, they formed the group that formed the press." (Frazier) "Hugo Meynell was one of the greatest sportsmen of his day and this essay is considered the best ever written on Fox Hunting." - Notes accompanying the entry for the first edition in the personal library catalog of Alfred B. Maclay (in our possession) where the present book is also listed (Maclay paid 20 dollars for it to Gee in 1926). "Some people consider the Mark Twain to be the first Derrydale, but I consider this one to be. They were both brought out in early 1926 and this deluxe copy [as is our copy]... is even more rare at 1 of 28, than the Mark Twain." - Frazier. A consummate rarity of the highest order.

First Edition of Milne's classic, featuring Eeyore, Piglet, Kanga, Roo, Owl and of course Pooh and Christopher Robin. Included are some of the best-known tales, such as "Pooh goes visiting and gets into a tight place," "Eeyore loses a tail and Pooh finds one" and "Piglet meets a heffalump." This was the second (and best-known) of the four Milne/Shepard collaborations, published two years after the vastly successful volume of verse WHEN WE WERE VERY YOUNG.~This volume is in fine, bright condition, with essentially no wear at all (partial darkening on the endpapers, as is appropriate for a volume that has always had its jacket). The first-issue dust jacket (with "117th Thousand" on the rear flap) is fine as well -- with NO wear, and with scarcely any of the usual darkening of the spine. In all, this is just about the most desirable copy one could hope to find. NCBEL IV 671. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Calligraphic Models of Ludovico Vicentino Degli Arrighi

      1926. ARRIGHI, Ludovico Degli. The Calligraphic Models of Ludovico Vicentino Degli Arrighi., surnamed Vicentino. 8vo., bound in original quarter-vellum over decorated red boards, in a handsome felt-lined silk chemise and slipcase. Paris: [Officina Bodoni for and with] Frederic Warde, 1926. |~||~||~||~||~| One of 300 copies. Facsimiles of the original writing books first printed in Rome (1522 & 1523). With an introduction by Stanley Morison. Warde was responsible for the composition of this volume, Mardersteig for the printing only. This volume reproduces Arrighi's La Operina on pages 1-32, with italic types cut into woodblocks by the artist Ugo da Carpi. Ludovico Arrighi (1475-1527), bookseller, publisher, papal scribe, printer and type designer in Renaissance Rome, was the "scriptor brevium" in the Papal Chancery, which led Arrighi to create an influential pamphlet on handwriting in 1522 called La Operina, demonstrating an italic typescript in the chancery style. Arrighi's italic printing types, less sloped and more formal than the earlier Aldine, were particularly elegant and not only influenced the italics of sixteenth-century type designers but were revived by a number of significant twentieth-century type designers and printers as well. Very fine copy. Mardersteig 15. Barr 14.
