        Windsor Farms

      Richmond, Virginia.: Windsor Farms, Incorporated.. 1926.. Attractive lithographed real estate map (black and white and two shades of green) for the planned Richmond, Virginia, community established in the 1920s. Descriptive text on map reads: "Windsor Farms A Residential Development on the James River at Richmond...Henrico Co...Virginia made for Windsor Farms Inc. Richmond Va. by Allen J. Saville, Inc. Engineering and Construction." Map is approximately 32 3/4 x 27 1/2 inches and has been folded, with breaks in the paper at a number of fold intersections, occasionally with modest paper loss. The most significant damage is an eight inch separation along one of the fold lines. Verso of the map is blank. The numerous properties in the development are notated as to size, with many of them featuring a check mark in blue pencil, no doubt indicating that the property has been sold. Scattered about the map are approximately 14 areas denoted in solid green and inscribed with the term "Reserved," thus preserving various areas of habitat within the community. Centrally located on the map is a plot identified as "Community Center"; elsewhere are located several palatial homes on large parcels of land: these are "Nordley," "Virginia House," and "Agecroft Hall" (the last two are sixteenth century English manor houses, dismantled and the materials crated and sent to Windsor Farms where they were reconstructed in the mid-twenties). The Kanawa Canal, the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad, and the James River are featured prominently at the bottom of the map. Windsor Farms has retained its identify as a high-end, much sought-after residential community, minutes from downtown or the West End. The vintage map is in good condition, with issues noted. .

        Autograph letter signed „Freud". On the verso an ALS (1 page) by his wife Martha Freud to the same recipient.

      n.p., 14. X. 1926. - 8vo. 1 page. A significantunpublished one-page autograph letter signed by Sigmund Freud, October 14th 1926. Freud comforts a woman who, it appears, is suffering from cancer; Freud himselfhad been sufferingsince 1923 from cancer of the jaw.He opens, "Dear woman, Please do not interpret my long silence as a lack of empathy onmy part! I can absolutely identify with everything such an event engenders, I just find it very difficult to put my feelings into words, particularly as one who is no longer enjoying life in its fullness, and as one who certainly doesn’t count himself entirely among the living." He goes on, "You perhaps are unable to fathom the degree to which this condition changes a person’s general outlook in regard to everything in this world. I am not trying to console you, and do not wish to disturb your legitimate grief, I only offer my heartfelt regards as your kin. Yours devotedly, Freud."To the reverse is the last page of a letter from Freud’s wife, Martha, to the same recipient – the first page of Martha’s letter was undoubtedly written on an integral leaf that isno longer present.Martha Freud writes, in part, "I would love to learn, dear Hanna, how you are doing now,whether it is possible for you to work professionally, and whether you are still living by yourself in that large house I have not visited Hamburg in exactly two years, but in our hearts we are close and enjoy our deep friendship despite the great distance between us. For today I remain with best wishes and a heartfelt embrace. Your loyal, Martha Freud." In very fine condition.Freud wrote widely on the subject of death. Ahead of his death drive theory, set out inBeyond the Pleasure Principle (1920), Freud wrote in 1915, "It is indeed impossible to imagine our own death; and whenever we attempt to do so we can perceive that we are in fact still present as spectators. At bottom no one believes in his own death In the unconscious every one of us is convinced of his own immortality."In the context ofFreud’s own writings on the subject, one might thenpresume that Freudchooseshis wordscarefully whendescribing himself as "(not) entirely among the living".A moving insight into Freud’s thoughts on his own mortality thatis unknown to scholars.

B." most likely refers to Anne Barton, Cummings' second wife. Lopez #1253. .

        Sangschaw; together with Penny Wheep.

      Edinburgh & London William Blackwood and Sons 1925; 1926 - Two octavo volumes. First edition of the Scottish poet Hugh M'Diarmid's first collection of poetry, in the second binding, together with a first edition of his second book. Hugh M'Diarmid, or MacDiarmid, as it is more commonly written, was the pen name of Christopher Murray Grieve. MacDiarmid was the leading light of the Scottish Literary Renaissance that occurred in the first half of the twentieth century. He developed and wrote in a synthetic Scots vernacular that incorporated elements of many regional dialects and integrated archaic words and phrases used by Scotland's late medieval poets. Scots was fading from common and literary use and was most often only used in poetry to evoke a sense of the past; instead, MacDiarmid sought to update and revolutionize the language, making it relevant to the modern era. He also believed that the Scottish psyche could not be expressed in English alone, and as a result, he wanted to create a national voice. Sangschaw contains MacDiarmid's first Scots lyric, The Watergaw, and extensive glossaries follow the poems in both volumes. Both bound in blue cloth, with the original light blue dust wrappers lettered in black. Dust wrappers are toned to spines and margins of the panels, and each has a stray mark to the front panel. Penny Wheep has a short, closed tear to the front panel, else both are in fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
