        My Book House [and] My Travelship. Complete Set in Original Wooden House.; [With:] Continuation volumes, and 'A Picturesque Tale of Progress'

      Chicago: The Bookhouse for Children. Good. A very good set of the six-volume "My Book House" and three-volume "My Travelship" in the original wooden house. Original cloth, with mounted cover illustrations, showing characteristic wear, some hinges cracked, soiling, etc., but overall a fine original set, preserved in the wooden case that shows a few small cracks to the wood and chips to the paint, but has chimneys intact and gilt title-paint fresh and bright, lacking the front steps as often given the tenuous attachment to the frame. Each volume is lavishly illustrated in color by such artists as N.C. Wyeth and Milo Winter, and prints classic children's stories, poems, myths, history, and tales. WITH THE CONTINUATION OF THE SERIES: Volumes Eight through Twelve of "My Book House," 1928-34; and the eight-volume series "A Picturesque Tale of Progress," 1929-33. Together 22 volumes. Additional shipping charges apply.

        The Incredible Adventures of Rowland Hern

      William Heinemann: London, 1928. 8vo. 285pp. Publisher's bottle green cloth, sunned to spine, inevitably, every copy of this book is sunned to the spine, if the cloth colour of this title was any more fugitive it would be being pursued by Tommy Lee Jones. Otherwise however this is a superior copy, clean and sharp, a deeper green than is usually seen, bright gilt and with far less of a hangdog look than is usual. A very good handsome copy. Internally clean, pencil ownership to front pastedown, trifling spotting to prelims. Rowland Hern is a book of very highly regarded tales blending crime, weirdness and detective fiction with a brisk fluency that makes it unsurprising that it appears on everybody's must read lists. Scarce and pretty. .

        A Girl in Every Port (Original Film Pressbook)

      Los Angeles: Paramount Pictures, 1928. Original oversize tabloid style pressbook for the 1928 silent film. With many images of the iconic Louise Brooks, both illustrated and photographed, and replete with many essays on the making of the film. Included as well is an illustrated section showing some of the various available poster styles and other advertising accessories. A key film for Louise Brooks, one in which she reprised and honed her image as a "vamp," gaining the notice of European directors. She would soon become disgusted with what she called "the Hollywood scene," and would leave Paramount to work with G.W. Pabst in her legendary role as Lulu in the 1929 German film, "Pandora's Box." An early role for Myrna Loy, and also featuring stripper and fan-dancer Sally Rand, both featured here in illustrated form. 4 pages, bi-fold. 17.25 x 22.25 inches. Very Good plus, with light chipping along the bi-fold.

        [Scrapbook]: Penn State: Alpha Gamma Rho

      State College, Pennsylvania. 1928. Oblong folio. Measuring 11" x 14". String-tied brown suede over paper boards with a Penn State emblem on the front board. Contains ephemera and 200 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.75" x 2" and 7" x 9.5", some with captions. Very good album with worn edges and some small tears with near fine photographs.A scrapbook kept by Ray O. Freudenberger while he was beginning his college education at Penn State University in 1928. During his time at the university he was a part of the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity as well as involved in numerous sports teams and clubs. The album begins with a large photograph of the original fraternity house (which was destroyed by fire in 1966, and rebuilt in 1968). This is followed by another large photo showing a group of fraternity men and their dates posed on the steps of the house. The following pages are full of autographs and messages from his fraternity brothers and other classmates which say things like, "My old pal! Let's roll a few games," and "O really do remember from one house party to another." The photographs show school events; track meets and football games, as well as dances and classroom photos. One section shows an R.O.T.C. group at attention in full uniform with blimps flying overhead. Freudenberger photographed the campus in various seasons including a large section of the campus in the winter of 1928. There are also photos of a University building during construction. Many of the photos show Freudenberger and his fraternity brothers around campus, at their house, and with dates before dances.Freudenberger was interested in the University's sports programs. He participated in some, and was also the manager of the men's basketball team. One section shows clippings of the football team and their schedule for the year of 1928. Additionally there are photographs and clippings from the boxing, track, rugby, and wrestling teams. The Alpha Gamma Rho house is shown in large photos featuring the interior and exterior, the lounge with fireplace, dining area, and formal living room. The final pages of the album are full of ticket stubs, programs, letters, and dance cards from his freshman year at Penn State. These include the winter sports schedules, a card announcing his admission to the freshman class, and Christmas cards from friends.Our research indicated he was living in the Pittsburgh area in 1941 and worked as an electric line engineer. An extensive look at the freshman year of a young man at Penn State University in 1928 with heavy emphasis on sports. .

        A collection of seven large original watercolours, all illustrations for children's stories

      N.d. [c. 1928]. Measuring c. 24cm x 19cm (image size) with very wide margins. A collection of seven large original watercolours, all illustrations for children's stories. They are most attractive, and fully finished designs, each signed by the artist, and one with an additional pen and ink drawing in the wide margins. The watercolours have been kept in original paper folders and the colours are fresh and bright. Some watercolour strokes, and pen and ink strokes in the margins, and pin holes in the blank corners. Several of the folders bear the pencil name Miss Cockroft, and there is an accompanying letter dated 1928, and addressed to her from the editor of the Halifax Courier with reference to her "delightful little stories." Oliove Wood's watercolours were painted to illustrate these children's tales. Olive Wood (fl. 1914-1933) was a miniature painter and illustrator of children's books. She trained at the Clapham and Camberwell Schools of Art and lived and worked in Dulwich Village, London. She exhibited illustrations and pen and ink page designs at the Royal Academy and at the Society of Women Artists. Her early designs incorporate art nouveau motifs. Later, she contributed illustrations to collections of children's stories and poetry, and to popular annuals such as Bo-Peep Annual and Little Folks. Miss Edith Cockroft was appointed as infant's teacher at Addingham School, Yorkshire in 1926 and remained in post there for 38 years. There are a number of examples of Olive Wood's work in the V & A, and she was clearly a gifted and imaginative artist. . Very Good. 1928.
