        Legend of Sleepy Hollow, The

      London: George G. Harrap & Co., 1928. - Arthur Rackham Awakens Sleepy Hollow[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. IRVING, Washington. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: George G. Harrap & Co., Ltd., [1928].First trade edition. Quarto (9 13/16 x 7 1/2 inches; 250 x 191 mm.). 102, [1], [1, blank] pp. Eight color plates and thirty drawings in black and white.Publisher's green cloth pictorially stamped in gilt on front cover and lettered in gilt on spine. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Pictorial endpapers. A near fine copy in the original color pictorial dust jacket with just a few small edge chips.By 1928, the traditional Rackham book - freely and lavishly illustrated, and lushly produced - was, culturally no longer in fashion nor financially feasible. Artistically, Rackham's work was being overshadowed by a younger generation. Publisher George Harrap stepped in, took up the challenge, and, through production economies, published a new kind of Rackham book. But if the volumes were not as spectacular as in the past, the artwork was no less impressive.Latimore and Haskell, pp. 63-64. Riall, pp. 164-165. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Rudyard Kipling's Verse Inclusive Edition 1885-1926 [An Association Copy, Signed and Inscribed by Kipling to William Duncan Herridge, PC KC MC DSO, and with a drawing and a Quote from "Sons of Martha" Written and Initialed by Kipling -- Thus Signed Twice]

      Garden City, New York: Doubleday, Doran & Company, Inc., 1928. First Oxford India Paper Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. A Near Fine copy of this Oxford India Paper Edition, published in the year following the first trade edition (a touch of rubbing to the rear board's upper left corner, slight wear to the front board's lower right) lacking the scarce slipcase), Signed and Inscribed by Rudyard Kipling to Canadian politician and diplomat William Duncan Herridge, PC KC MC DSO on the title page as follows: "To / W. Herridge / from / the Author / "on an auspicious occasion) / Nov. 20, 193.. / Rudyard Kipling. [slash]". Kipling has lined through his name in the title and has added a small drawing over the first part of his name in the book's title. Beneath the book's title, Kipling has added a line from his Poem "Sons of Martha" (a Poem inspired by the biblical story of Mary and Martha as told in Luke 10:38?42) with an added dash reading as follows: "It is their care that the gear engages -; it is their care that the switches lock:" under which quote Kipling has written "Sons of Martha." and his initials "RK". Upton Sinclair saw the Poem as one of social protest and included it in a work he edited -- and which has an introduction by Jack London -- titled "The Cry for Justice: An Anthology of the Literature of Social Protest". In that Anthology, Sinclair states of the Poem: "Under this title the English poet has written a striking picture of the social chasm. He figures the world?s toilers as the ?Sons of Martha,? who, because their mother 'was rude to the Lord, her Guest,' are condemned forever to unrequited toil. 'It is their care in all the ages to take the buffet and cushion the shock.' The poem goes on to tell of the ignorance and torment in which they live?while the Sons of Mary, who 'have inherited that good part,' live in ease upon their toil." [PLEASE NOTE: Kipling spent much of his life in India (which has a large Hindu population) and what appears on the front board and on the title page to be a swastika is actually a Hindu good luck symbol, the use of which can be traced back into antiquity. In Sanskrit the symbol means "fortunate" or "well-being" but it was earlier used in the Neolithic Europe as a potter's stamp, was incised as a mason's mark in Minoan Crete, was found in Homeric Troy, and also was used in early Indian civilizations. The Hindu merchant of Kipling's day opened his annual account-book with a swastika in order to ensure an auspicious beginning to the year. Once the Nazis usurped the swastika, Kipling ordered that it should no longer adorn his books.] The author of "Kim", "The Jungle Book", "Just So Stories for Little Children", "The Phantom 'Rickshaw and other Eerie Tales" and many other works, and one of the most notable English writers of all time, Rudyard Kipling won the won the 1907 Nobel Prize in Literature "in consideration of the power of observation, originality of imagination, virility of ideas and remarkable talent for narration which characterize the creations of this world-famous author", making him the first English language writer ever to win the Prize. A NEAR FINE ASSOCIATION COPY DATED, SIGNED, AND INSCRIBED BY KIPLING, AND WITH A DRAWING AND WITH A LINE FROM HIS POEM "SONS OF MARTHA" ADDED BY KIPLING. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.

        LE COL DES ARAVIS. 1928.

      Très belle et rare aquarelle originale de Joannès Drevet exécutée en montant au col .On y découvre la route arrivant aux chalets d'alpage avec ses poteaux électriques nouvellement posés ( modernisme oblige ) . paysage de printemps , après une pluie , où le ciel apparaît plus bleu encore .......l'alpage verdoyant et accueillant. quelques promeneurs remontent la route.Dimensions: 220 mm x 300 mm sous cadre noir époque 400 mm x 500 mm.Signée en bas à droite J.Drevet. Datée et située en bas à gauche " Col des Aravis . 1928. " Très beau et rare document , exécuté à l'aquarelle alors que Joannès Drevet , graveur et aquafortiste lyonnais avait 74 ans. Joannès Drevet. ( père de Joanny Drevet ) . Né à Lyon en 1854, il y est mort en 1940. Il a très largement représenté sa ville natale, en particulier dans ce monument qu'est Le Lyon de nos pères, d'Emmanuel Vingtrinier, ouvrage, qui malgré le côté souvent très sombre des illustrations est très recherché. Mais il est une autre facette du personnage, que l'on ne connaît pas , c'est celle de l'aquarelliste qui a peint de nombreux paysage du Lyonnais, du Dauphiné et des Alpes . ( un ouvrage sur cette partie méconnue de son oeuvre , a été publié en 1935 , sous le titre " Souvenirs " , à seulement 40 exemplaires , avec de nombreuses reproductions couleurs de ses aquarelles ). Cette facette est largement plus lumineuse et plus joyeuse que celle du graveur. Le style de cette aquarelle nous le prouve aisément . C'est un ravissement de fraîcheur , de spontanéité et de modernisme.

        Money Illusion

      1928 - THE MONEY ILLUSION, WARMLY INSCRIBED BY FISHER TO FELLOW STABLE MONEY ADVOCATE RALPH WESCOTT, IN SCARCE ORIGINAL DUST JACKETFISHER, Irving. The Money Illusion. New York: Alephi Company, (1928). Small octavo, original green cloth, original dust jacket. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $8500.First edition, presentation/association copy, of this analysis of currency instability by America's first great economist, warmly inscribed by Fisher in the year of publication to a fellow stable money proponent, "To Mr. Ralph W. Wescott with the compliments and love of Irving Fisher, August, 1928."While [Fisher's] was a prominent voice in American public discourse for some three decades, his influence has been most enduring in government uses of economic quantification and within the discipline of economics itself". His work has inspired a huge professional literature, both in the more abstract and in applied areas of economic research" (ANB). In The Money Illusion (a book based upon a series of lectures Fisher delivered at the Geneva School of International Studies), Fisher discusses the "hidden causes" and "harm[ful] results" of "all monetary units, including the dollar" (Preface). During the 1920s, Fisher actively supported the League of Nations. He campaigned for pro-League presidential candidate James Cox, and also spearheaded the Pro-League Independents. Recipient Ralph Wescott was an Independents staff member. In addition, Wescott was affiliated with the Stable Money League, which Fisher founded to promote a course of steadying money's value by adjusting appropriately the dollar's exchange rate against gold.Book very nearly fine with interior clean, slightest rubbing to spine ends. Fragile and scarce original dust jacket bright and very good, with mild toning to spine, light edge-wear including shallow chipping to spine head and front panel. A desirable inscribed presentation/association copy in near-fine condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Photographic Travel Journal documenting a cross-country trip from Peru, Indiana to settle in Prescott, Arizona. Includes photographs of the Smoki People

      Indiana, Missouri, Kansas, New Mexico, Arizona, 1928. The large (approximately 14" x 9") album contains 82 pages with approximately 230 photographs (ranging in size from 1.5" x 2.5" to 7" x 10.5") and a few postcards and other ephemeral items. The photographs are in nice shape and glued to the album pages. Many of the pages are artistically decorated and captioned in white ink. The album has a worn yapped leather cover over its boards with an abbreviated version of the poem [Out] Where the West Begins printed on the front above vignettes of cowboys, a wagon train, and one lone Native American. This exceptional album, although not in chronological sequence, documents Reuter's trip and his first several years living in Prescott. Highlights include * Buildings, towns, streets, mines, people, and scenery along the way and in Prescott; * The Missouri River ferry at Arrow Rock, Missouri; * Reuter's auto-tent camping setup including one image after a rainstorm at Topeka, Kansas; * The road with seventeen hairpin turns between Santa Fe and Albuquerque, New Mexico, and Reuter's car at the top of the mountain pass; * Reuter sitting on a spare tire lashed to the back of his car after arriving in Arizona; * Reuter at his desk and standing by the linotype machines at the Journal-Miner, * Prescott's Annual Fourth of July Frontier Days Wild West Show and Rodeo including bull wrestling, bronco busting, the parade, and * Six images (four photographs and two postcards) of the Smoki People. Dutch Reuter, a young journeyman printer, traveled from Indiana to Prescott, Arizona in 1923 to begin work at Journal-Miner newspaper as a machinist and linotypist. Eventually, Reuter established the Prescott Printing Company where he edited and published the Yavapai County Messenger. Reuter was a very early member of the Smoki People, joining soon after his arrival in Prescott. The Smoki originated in 1921 when a group of Prescott businessmen dressed in Native American costumes and performed a "Snake Dance" loosely based on the Hopi Snake Dance as a way to support the Prescott Wild West Show. The dance proved to be exceptionally popular, and continued success led the group to formally organize and repeat an ever-enlarging annual show for the next seventy years. As a group, the Smoki became very interested in preserving Southwest Indian culture at a time when the federal government had outlawed tribal ceremonies and compelled tribal children to attend boarding schools and abandon traditional ways. As part of that effort, they established an important museum to showcase pottery, baskets, lithics, and textiles. In the late 1980s, members of the Hopi tribe began to formally complain about the Smoki's cultural appropriation of its religious Snake Dance. In turn, the Smoki People invited a delegation of Hopis to attend the event in 1989 to see that the celebration was well-intended. The effort did little to change anyone's mind, and the Smoki ceased their performances the following year. The Smoki Museum, however, continues in operation today guided by a Native American Advisory Council.
