        First Steps to Rackets

      London: Mills & Boon. (1926). First. First edition. Octavo. 136, 16 ads pp., plates. Green cloth. A slight bump on the front board, very good or better without dustwrapper. Inscribed by one of the co-authors: "To George Standing in grateful remembrance of the pleasure of meeting. Clarence N. Bruce. Jan. 1928." Not to be confused with either tennis or squash, rackets or racquets is an indoor racquet sport played in the United Kingdom, United States, and Canada. The sport is infrequently called "hard rackets," possibly to distinguish it from the related sport of squash (formerly called "squash rackets"). Both authors were rackets champions and the recipient, George Standing, was the head professional at the New York Racket and Tennis Club, and was runner-up for the World Championship in 1897. .

        AUTOGRAPHED LETTER SIGNED (ALS) to his son James about football, Warm Springs, and building a dam

      13 October 1926, Warm Springs - A superb two-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER on both sides of Roosevelt's personal Hyde Park stationery, completely in FDR's hand, to his son James Roosevelt SIGNED as "Father." Roosevelt begins by talking about Jimmy's life at school, especially football--"your old Dad is keen to hear about it all-- and he was once a Freshman himself!"--before talking about Warm Springs from which this letter is addressed: "I'm working hard on my exercises down here & our medical experiment period has been a joint success--all of the 25 patients have greatly benefited. I hope this winter to get enough people to finance it on a much larger permanent basis" (FDR established the Warm Springs Foundation in 1927). "Next winter I will come here in Feb. instead of going to Florida & I wish much that you would come down here at the midyears or at Easter- I would love to have you here alone. There are lots of interesting problems- Just now I am organizing the fishing club & getting ready to let the contract for the big dam which will make a 35 acre lake. This project should finance itself in 3 years- Lots of love-- Take care of yourself. Affect. Father." Wonderful content touching upon many of FDR's interests and foreshadowing the TVA program begun in his administration. James Roosevelt 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. Autograph letters completely in Franklin Roosevelt's hand are quite scarce, most especially so when to a family member. Normal creases from folding. About Fine [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Going Somewhere

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1926. First. First edition. Some very light chipping to the cloth at the crown, some dampstaining to both the boards and the bottom margins of the pages, a sound, fair only copy lacking the dustwrapper. This copy Inscribed to Dorothy Peterson: "For Dorothy Peterson this book of caricature of scenes with which she is familiar, Max Ewing. New York. January 5 - 1933." Peterson was the model for the female heroine of Carl Van Vechten's novel Nigger Heaven. According to Notable Black American Women (p.842-4), "Van Vechten... modeled the heroine of the novel, Mary Love -- the beautiful librarian concerned with her racial heritage, after Dorothy Peterson." He also modeled the home of another character on her home, which was one of Harlem's most important and well-attended literary salons. Peterson, who co-founded both the Harlem Experimental Theatre and the Harlem Suitcase Theatre, also devoted herself to collecting manuscripts of Harlem Renaissance notables, and eventually helped Van Vechten donate the material that was the basis for the James Weldon Johnson Memorial Collection of Negro Arts and Letters at Yale University. She was a sponsor of the short-lived but influential periodical Fire!!, and was also reputed to be "the one Afro-American woman [Jean] Toomer [who soon after married a white woman] was once thought to care about." (Langston Hughes, before and beyond Harlem, p.214). The inscription in this book would indicate that Ewing was apparently familiar with the literary party scene of which Peterson was near the center. Not surprisingly, Ewing's papers also went to Yale, whether through Peterson's intercession is not known to us. .

To Jesse Lasky, in New York City: "Enclosed is a letter I received from Percival Wren, the author of BEAU GESTE. I am also sending a copy to Mr. Zukor. I do this not because of any reference to me but rather because of what he says about yourself and Mr. Zukor as American Producers. You once said.that it was your ambition to produce a picture which could be released on the same day and date in every principal city in the world. It is naturally my ambition to direct this picture.What we all did with Beau Geste Proves that we Americans can produce a picture which will appeal equally to every Anglo-Saxon mind in the world."; Paramount Pictures released "Beau Geste" on August 1, 1927, directed by Herbert Brenon. The cast included Ronald Colman, Neil Hamilton, Ralph Forbes and Alice Joyce. AUTOGRAPHS VERY GOOD. Signed by Author(s).
