        NOW WE ARE SIX

      London: Methuen & Co., 1927. First edition. With illustrations by Ernest H. Shepard. 8vo, publisher&#146;s original red cloth pictorially decorated and lettered in gilt on covers and spine, t.e.g., pink illustrated endpapers. x, 103 pp. A handsome and well preserved copy, quite fresh, with extremely minor mellowing to the spine, the text-block and illustrations all bright and clean and the hinges strong and tight. FIRST EDITION OF A CLASSIC. This third book in the quartet written by Milne, inspired by his young son Christopher, and illustrated by Shepard was an instant success. Like WHEN WE WERE YOUNG, NOW WE ARE SIX is a joyful combination of verse and pictures designed to captivate young readers. Christopher Milne wrote of his father&#146;s stories: &#147;It is difficult to be sure which came first. Did I do something and did my father then write a story about it? Or was it the other way about, and did the story come first? Certainly my father was on the lookout for ideas; but so too was I. He wanted ideas for his stories, I wanted them for my games, and each looked towards the other for inspiration. But in the end it was all the same: the stories became part of our lives; we lived them, thought them, spoke them.&#148;-Enchanted Places. Most likely it was this unique collaboration between father and son which makes these little stories and poems so intimate and personal. Milne had bought a country house in Sussex, and it was there that many of his poems were set. Amid fields, under cherry trees, in rustic barnyards, and down by the pond, these poetic yarns lead young minds to a refreshing holiday in nature. And, as always, Shepard&#146;s drawings capture our hearts with their endearing images of a boy and his roly-poly teddy bear, their endless adventures, and much much more. These buoyant illustrations are sure to bring a smile to the innate child buried somewhere within each of us. And who can resist the charm of Milne&#146;s writing when in a P.S. to his introduction he notes: &#147;Pooh wants us to say that he thought it was a different book; and he hopes you won&#146;t mind, but he walked through it one day, looking for his friend Piglet, and sat down on some of the pages by mistake.&#148;

        [Poster]: See Rossums Universal Robots. A Play with a Message [Not a Motion Picture]. Sacramento Memorial Auditorium

The information "A Play with a Message" has been added over an original line (that seems like it might have been misspelled). An influential play by Karel Capek, which premiered in Prague in 1921, most famous now for introducing the word "robot" (derived from the Czech noun "robota" meaning "labor"). The play, in which androids who are at first content to work for their human creators decide to rebel, made its U.S. premiere in 1922 and supposedly Spencer Tracy made his stage debut as one of the robots in an early American production. .

        AUTOGRAPHED LETTER SIGNED (ALS) to his son James with revealing biographical and financial information

      Hyde Park, [May 1927]. Letter. Normal creases. About Fine with envelope postmarked 15 May 1927. A 5-1/2-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER on 3 sheets of Roosevelt's Fidelity & Deposit Company of Maryland stationery, completely in FDR's hand, to his son James Roosevelt SIGNED as "Father." Roosevelt begins discussing Jimmy's return to rowing and his attempt to watch his son in action. He then mentions in a very revealing manner his half-brother, James, 26 years FDR's senior: "Of course Uncle Rosy's death was a very great shock to me- He was so much older than I am, that it would have been perfectly possible for us to be a good deal apart, yet I think that he & I were much more like real brothers than in many cases & we always pulled together with a fine understanding." Roosevelt gives details about James's estate and inheritances including his own: "I receive outright 100,000, which is part of what my Father left to Uncle Rosy- and I get the guns rifles & fishing tackle." He mentions how the death has disrupted his plans to be at Warm Springs and talks about a planned family trip to Europe. He tells Jimmy not to worry about school: "The chief advantage of the law is that it is the finest preparation for any non-scientific career but you could always take one of the short night courses at any time." Attending but not graduating from Harvard, James became an insurance executive, a position he left in 1937 to become secretary to his father in the White House. Letters completely in FDR's hand are scarce, especially to a family member, and virtually unique when this length. With the envelope addressed by FDR to Mr. James Roosevelt.

        LE MORTE D&#39;ARTHUR...Introduction by Prof. Rhys and a note on Aubrey Beardsley by Aymer Vallance

      London: J. M. Dent and Sons, Aldine House, 1927. Third and most complete edition, limited to 1600 copies, with 10 extra illustrations not included in the two first printings. 22 full page and double-page illustrations by Aubrey Beardsley including the fine frontispiece, the Merlin drawing and the design for the original cover, also with numerous designs and illustrations throughout the text, as well as a profusion of decorated initials and chapter headings. Thick, large 4to, publisher&#146;s original black cloth with spine and covers beautifully and fully decorated in gilt after designs by Beardsley. lv, 538 pp. A very handsome, fine and proper copy, a bit of very minor spotting to the first few and last few leaves, a touch of offsetting to the flies, the cloth is rich, fresh and quite bright, hinges with some expert, very skillful and virtually unnoticeable re-freshening. AN IMPORTANT PRINTING OF THIS VERY BEAUTIFUL BOOK. The third edition contains an extra 10 illustrations added in the text, the first edition to do so, as well as the original binding design (which was never used) and a full size facsimile of the Merlin drawing, previously used on a smaller scale. The text is that of Caxton&#146;s printed for the first time in 1485 at Westminster in London. This book represents Aubrey Beardsley&#39;s first commissioned work, undertaken when he was not yet twenty. While working at an insurance office in London, Beardsley frequently visited the Jones and Evans bookshop in Cheapside, where he got to know Frederick Evans. Mr. Evans allowed the artist to trade drawings for books on occasion, and it was Evans who suggested to J. M. Dent that Beardsley should be the artist for Mr. Dent&#39;s new edition of the Arthurian tales. A suggestion well made and one to which 20th century printing owes much. The commission, which came in 1892 was to &#147;design and illustrate an ambitious edition of Malory&#146;s &#145;Le Morte d&#146;Arthur&#146; which was intended to rival the Kelmscott Press books on their own ground...(E)lements beside the pale remnants of Pre-Raphaelitism were at work fertilizing (Beardsley&#146;s) developing talent, and what was seen by its devisers as an emulation of Morris and Burne-Jones turned out in the execution more like a parody of them--a parody which annoyed Morris to the point at which he contemplated legal action. It may well not have been a deliberate parody: it is simply that already, willy-nilly, the &#145;strong medieval decorative feeling&#146; of Morris was mixed, as Walter Crane noted, &#145;with a curious weird Japanese-like spirit of diablerie and grotesque, as of an opium dream&#146;.&#148; Beardsley&#146;s life was short, he died of tuberculosis at the age of 26. In those few years he managed however to leave a great and lasting artistic legacy and a fascinating personal history as well.

        Dear Bee. Loving Letters to a Daughter 1927-1935

      Marshfield Hills, MA. 2012. Artist&#39;s book, one of six copies, all on a range of papers, each copy signed and numbered by the artist, Viola Kaeumlen. Page size: box of 13 pouches (tied with brown silk ribbon) as envelopes holding the "letters" and related material written by the artist, printed list of contents, box size closed is 5.5 x 7.5 x 2.25 inches. Bound by the artist: two-part box is brown book cloth over boards and adorned with medallion of young woman; box fastened tan silk cord woven through eight holes in the 2 parts of the box, lined with Canson BFK Rives Tan paper. The artist&#39;s statement and the colophon explain that the book contains texts of letters written by Mrs. Mary Arthur to her daughter Beatrice Arthur over the period from 1927 - 1935 that were found in an old suitcase by Ms. Kaeumlen in 2010 in flea market on the Boston South Shore. The letters led to an investigation of not only the women concerned but the times in which they lived, with the pertinent information on the times: the Sacco-Vanzetti case, the Lindbergh kidnapping, the Great Depression, local industry (in which Bee&#39;s father worked) The Cordage Company, their church in Plymouth where they lived (the first church established by the Mayflower colonists), social welfare programs of the times. Unusual for the times, Beatrice Arthur left her parent&#39;s home in Plymouth, MA to attend Salem State College in what was then far-off Salem. Her mother&#39;s letters of this eight year period are the very stuff of social history as well as the poignant details of one family&#39;s struggle to survive in very hard times. Four of the 13 pouches hold general information about how the letters were found, the history of the family (Mr. Arthur was an immigrant from Scotland), and a conclusion. The other nine pouches are related to one of the years Mary wrote to her daughter. Ms. Kaeumlen was able to locate the family home in Plymouth and learned that Bee had passed away in 2009 at the age of 99, a devoted educator for all of her life. & The artist has located family photographs, postcards from the era, paper clippings and greeting cards, all of which were scanned in printed on an archival inkjet printer on a range of papers including Epson Matte, Red River Polar Pearl Metallic, Silver Metallic, Canson Newsprint, Strathmore translucent Vellum and Sennelier Calligraphy paper. The fonts used are Helvetica for Ms. Kaeumlen&#39;s own writing and general information texts and Lucida Handwriting for the excerpts of Mary Arthur&#39;s letters. & This is a beautiful object, redolent of another time when hand-written mail meant significant time lapses in communication and correspondents had expressive and unique hand-writing as well as vocabulary. More than that, the author / artist, Viola Kaeumlen, has taken this remarkably personal correspondence and placed it firmly in a time and place in American social history. with information about health epidemics, social issues - the Arthur&#39;s must deal with payment in "scrip" instead of real money, criminal cases of local and national interest, as well as the role of the local church and welfare societies in everyday life. It is as beautiful and meaningful way of learning social history as one could find. Beatrice Arthur, the "Dear Bee" of the letters, is perhaps the prototype of the 20th century woman who earned a bachelor&#39;s degree in Business Education and completed post-graduate work at Harvard, Boston University and Bridgewater State College and worked summers in the Plymouth Cooperative Bank, the Plymouth Cordage Company office, and as a civil service secretary in the U.S. government as well as marrying and raising her step-children. <br>See an <A HREF= >Image.</A><br>

        October in Belorussia (Original Painting)

      1927. Fine. October in Belorussia - Original Painting capturing the Pogroms and the urgency of Jewish migration& & AKSELROD, Meer. October in Belorussia. 1927. Original watercolor, gouache and pencil on paper. Image measures 12 inches x 19 inches; framed 24 inches x 30 inches. Initialed on the front by the artist and signed on the verso with an additional pencil sketch of a nude. Excellent condition. Elegantly framed. & & ONE OF THE MOST DISTINGUISHED MODERN RUSSIAN JEWISH ARTISTS, Meer Akselrod (1902-1970) was born in Molodechno, a small &#147;shtetl&#148; in Belorussia not far from Vitebsk, the native town of Marc Chagall. Like Chagall the images of his Jewish village upbringing have served as inspiration for much of his work. The years immediately following the Russian Revolution were a golden age for the arts in that nation. Painting, literature, music and theatre were all supported and encouraged. Meer Akselrod (known as Mark to his friends) benefited greatly from this artistic spring. Unfortunately by the 1930&#146;s the avant-garde was no longer favored and artists were forced to conform to the dictates of Socialist Reform or leave the country as did Chagall and Kandinsky. Akselrod went underground instead and began to paint more realistic imagery. His Jewish content made him always a figure of controversy with the communist regime. & & ILLUMINATING HIS NATIVE SHTETL. At the time of this painting the artist was in his mid-twenties and it is one of a series that he completed over the course of several years that illuminated his native &#147;shtetl&#148;. Belorussia had long been a target of murderous pogroms as the Jews there, always subject to economic polarization, ethnic inequality and religious intolerance, were understandably receptive to revolutionary ideas. The early &#147;October&#148; massacres of the 20th century (1903-05) were never to be forgotten. This painting portrays a crowded street scene of frantic villagers pushing carts, carrying children and large sacks of belongings and food. There is a fervent sense of movement. They are rushing to leave, to escape. In the background is what appears to be a soldier on horseback rounding up an indistinct group of villagers. A horrible sense of irony accompanies this image from the hindsight of the 21st century for in 1943 over 16,000 Jews were killed in Belorussia.& & The illustrated biographical book Meer Akselrod by Elena Akselrod: Jerusalem, 1993. contains this reference on page 32: &#147;&#133; as a student in the faculty of the graphic arts, Akselrod chose gouache and tempera as the media for his diploma work. Akselrod&#146;s diploma work was studies for large-scale murals on the theme October in Belorussia. These many-figured compositions were to depict the capture of factories and estates, political meetings and so forth. In 1935 Akselrod was commissioned to do murals for Government House in Minsk. Using his gouaches of 1927 as a starting point, the artist did a series of new studies. This work was never completed, though Akselrod did paint the canvas, The Capture of the Estate.&#148; Plate 36 reproduced in this book, White Poles in Minsk [1927] is from this same series.& & PROVENANCE: An inscription, signed R.[Rivka] Rubina, (the artist&#146;s wife and an important Yiddish author in Russia) is placed near the nude sketch on the verso of the painting. It states that this piece was given as a gift to Ella Minukhin. After Minukhin&#146;s death it reverted to Elena Akselrod, his daughter, from whom this work was purchased.

      Paris, [New York]: Shakespeare and Company, [by Adolph and Rudolph Loewinger for Samuel Roth and Max Roth], 1927, [1929]. The very rarely encountered true First American Edition (unauthorized), preceding the authorized edition by some five years and the first printing in England by seven years. Small 4to, in a handsome contemporary binding of three-quarter navy blue morocco over blue cloth covered boards, the spine featuring three elegant compartments with red morocco inlaid fleur-de-lis within a densely gilt-stippled field, two further compartments gilt lettered, each compartment gilt ruled and divided by gilt-stippled raised bands, additional gilt lettering at the tale, endpapers marbled, t.e.g, (6), 735 pp. A very nice copy in contemporary binding, the paper still quite fresh, clean and bright, the binding is handsome in spite of some light age wear along the edges and tips. SCARCE FIRST AMERICAN EDITION (UNAUTHORIZED). The most important novel of the twentieth century . ULYSSES can be viewed as the pinnacle of the Modernist movement, and its impact on all subsequent western literature is unmistakable. Such writers as Virginia Woolf, John Dos Passos, William Faulkner, Samuel Beckett, Malcolm Lowry, and Anthony Burgess have all paid tribute, consciously or unconsciously, to Joyce&#39;s influence. Burgess as well pronounced it the greatest single work in the English literature of this century, and he is not alone in that opinion. According to James Spoerri, "This fortunate combination of printer and publisher resulted in the appearance of ULYSSES as a book whose physical aspect is particularly suited to its content. It is (an)... inviting volume, the blue and white of its covers subtly evocative of the Greece whose epic it so closely parallels" (quoted in the catalogue for the Garden Sale, Sotheby&#39;s 1989). &#147;This pirated edition of ULYSSES is discussed at some length by R.F. Roberts in his pioneer article, &#147;Bibliographical Notes on James Joyce&#146;s &#145;Ulysses&#146;,&#148; in the &#147;Colophon&#148;, New York, NS. 1.4 (Spring, 1936) 565-579. Among the many points in which this piracy differs from the legitimate (Shakespeare and Co.) printing are the misprint &#147;Jonthan&#148; for Jonathan&#148; (p.[2]), the reversal of the position of the fly title and divisional numeral I, the absence of title and author on the spine, and a very large number of typographical errors. On p. 323 of this piracy, for example, l.29 of the legitimate edition is inverted and inserted as the third line from the bottom. Roberts also states that &#147;The pagination is the same but the type font is perceptibly smaller; the paper is a considerably heavier stock and the book is consequently about one-eighth of an inch thicker.&#148; This edition is not a copy of the photographic reproduction mentioned by Joyce in his letter to Bennett A Cerf, April 2, 1932, printed in the 1934 Random House edition of ULYSSES (A 21), but a piracy from new plates. The photographic reproduction mentioned by Joyce almost certainly never existed. Copies of this pirated edition reached Paris and were imported into the United States as genuine copies. One of these, sent by Joyce to Bennett A. Cerf of Random House, was used in setting up the first authorized American edition of ULYSSES. This pirated edition...was printed by Adolph and Rudolph Loewinger...for Samuel Roth, publisher of &#147;Two World and Two Worlds Monthly, and his brother Max Roth. It was unauthorized by Joyce and sold illegally in the United States. Many copies of this piracy were seized by the Society for the Suppression of Vice on October 5, 1929.&#148; Slocum and Cahoon 28-29

        ALS of Robert J Cairns, Maryknoll Catholic Mission, December 31, 1927

      One page typed letter on Maryknoll Mission Headquarters letterhead, together with three contemporary photographs from China. A brief account of the Communist party led Canton Uprising of December 11, 1927 by Maryknoll priest Robert Cairns, who was attached to a Catholic mission in "Sun Chong", which was Guangdong Province at the time. Father Cairns writes that he was "caught up in the maelstrom" when the revolt occurred. "They killed burned and plundered -- it was horrible, and you may well believe that I am thankful to be away from the place. Canton may be a fine city, if you mean Canton, Ohio. ... Father Verdier, the Jesuit Superior of Nanking, whose two companions were recently killed and who himself barely escaped with his life was in Canton for a rest! And a fine rest it was -- but he was with the six priests who got away from Canton the second day of the trouble. The first morning I tried to go to the Hongkong train, when ten soldiers held me up at the point of their rifles. Then I suddenly changed my mind (a Scotch privilege, for it doesn&#39;t cost anything) I felt the urge not to go -- and I &#39;obeyed that impulse&#39;. Returned to the mission, we saw smoking buildings to the north and south of us, not far from the Cathedral. Motor buses and autos were commandeers [sic] by the looting &#39;Reds&#39;, who terrorized the people. At night the city was aglow with huge buildings set afire by these terrible men. Over 2000 refugees escaped on our river boat to Hongkong." The Canton Uprising was an abortive attempt by the Chinese Communists Party, led in part by Russian agents, to take power by force of arms and turn Canton into a Soviet style municipality. The uprising lasted only 2 days; its failure came to be known as the "Paris Commune of the East", and caused some members of the Chines Communist Party, including Mao Zedong, to start to question the methods and strategy of the Comintern in the Chinese Revolution. Father Cairns spent many years in China; he was captured in World War II on Sancian Island by the Japanese. Single page, 4to, folded for mailing. With contemporary note at the bottom of the letter in an unknown hand; with the original mailing envelope, with Catholic Mission Sun Chong, China return address. The three black and white photographs are of contemporary Chinese people.
