        Autograph letter signed

      1928 - CHURCHILL, Winston. Autograph letter signed. London, April 16, 1928. One folded leaf, measuring 8 by 5 inches folded and 8 by 10 inches open, on embossed Chancellor of the Exchequer letterhead. Framed with portrait of Churchill, entire piece measures 24 by 15 inches. $16,000.Autograph letter signed from Churchill to Lady Anne Cave, expressing condolences on the death of her husband, Viscount George Cave, the Lord Chancellor of the United Kingdom., handsomely framed with an early portrait of Churchill.Cave, a career politician who served first in the House of Commons and, after being awarded the title of viscount, the House of Lords, was appointed Lord Chancellor in 1922, a post he held until a few days before his death in March 1928. “His imperturbable moderation, his persuasive urbanity, and his calm lucidity, as well as the innate sense of fairness of which these were the outward expression… deservedly won for him the respect of all parties… Lord Cave was a great public servant. If his distaste for every form of display and self-advertisement tended to give an appearance of conventionality and reserve to his public work, he had another side which he showed to those who enjoyed his friendship and whose affection he had won. He would not have wished any estimate of his career to be silent on the great debt which he owed to the lifelong companionship and constant inspiration of his wife. In Lady Cave’s books the reader is able to share some of the intimacies of his life” (DNB). Churchill’s letter, dated April 16, 1928, reads, “My dear Lady Cave, I venture to write & express to you my profound sympathy in y[ou]r grievous loss. My wife & I felt most keenly for you both in those tragic weeks. She is herself recuperating abroad from a dangerous illness, & I do not know whether she has had the strength to write herself, but I know how intensely she will share my sentiments, & as soon as she is strong enough you will hear from her. In the Cabinet we all felt the shock of a heavy blow, & though the office can be filled the vacancy remains. Everyone was poignantly affected by the letter wh[ich] you wrote at y[ou]r husband’s request from his deathbed. When the allotted span has been accomplished, it is vain to rebel against the fulfillment of life. It is heroic & enviable to die in harness with careful thought for every interest in one’s charge & faithfully carrying on to the very end. This came to young people in the war, but in these times of peace the same qualities of firmness of character & integrity of spirit can sometimes find their expression. I thought you would not mind my sending you these few lines. Y[ou]rs v[er]y sin[cere]ly, Winston S. Churchill.” A fine Churchill autograph letter, handsomely framed.

      Paris: F.-L. Schmied, 1928. No. 165 OF 175 COPIES, SIGNED BY SCHMIED n. Hardcover. 292 x 200 mm (11 1/2 x 7 7/8"). 4 p.l., 326 pp., [4] leaves. No. 165 OF 175 COPIES, SIGNED BY SCHMIED. Dark blue crushed morocco by Gonin (stamp-signed on upper pastedown), spine lettered in gilt, turn-ins with silver fillet border, royal blue leather doublures and matching moiré silk endleaves, original wrappers preserved. Housed in a later suede-backed slipcase. With decorative title and section titles printed in gold, and 23 COLOR ILLUSTRATIONS BY SCHMIED, comprised of nine vignette tailpieces, and 14 full-page plates, including 12 portraits. Ritchie 26. Cracks, with some looseness, along the joints (no doubt because of the heavy boards), covers with light polish residue, original wrappers heavily foxed, but the plates and text clean and fresh. This is the very appealing Schmied livre d'artiste version of Suetonius' classic biographies of the first 12 Roman emperors, originally written in 121 A.D. Immensely talented in all areas of book production, François-Louis Schmied (1873-1941) was one of the most important, original, and active figures in the world of artists' books. He was born and studied in Geneva, moved to Paris at 22 to make a living as a wood engraver, and joined the French Foreign Legion in his mid-40s, losing an eye in the Great War. It was after 1919 that Schmied began to focus primarily on the production of "éditions de luxe," and in the mid-1920s, he and his eldest son Théo managed an atelier that issued a distinguished series of sumptuous works in very small editions, largely for members of elite French bibliophile societies. The Roman biographer Suetonius (69-140?) served for some years as a secretary to Hadrian, but he was dismissed for an indiscretion involving the emperor's wife, after which he retired from public life in order to devote himself to literature. He wrote a considerable number of biographies as well as works on antiquities, natural science, and even linguistics, but all that have survived are his "Lives of Famous Men" (in part) and the present "Lives of the 12 Caesars." Our work contains biographies of the Roman rulers from Julius Caesar through Domitian, with formulaic descriptions of family history, public career, physical appearance, private life, and vices and virtues. The work is of great interest to us mainly because of its material relating to the emperors' often scandalous private lives, material to which Suetonius had access in the imperial archives, and material that would otherwise have been lost.

        Helldorado; Bringing the Law to the Mesquite (signed and Inscribed with a Note About Early Tombstone)

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1928. First Edition. Octavo. 256p. A marvelous inscription on the front free endpaper to Dorothy Lofdell: "May this story ..recall to your memory some of the pleasant hours in Tombstone where "Helldorado" was born, and by closing your eyes may you see a vision of what Tombstone was in the palmy days of 1881."--signed, William M. Breakinridge, Tucson, AZ, Oct. 31, 1918. As Larry Kellner wrote in Arizoniana, William Milton Breakenridge was the deadliest two-gun deputy of Arizona. Besides his career as a deputy sheriff and detective for the Southern Pacific Railroad, he served Arizona as a scout, surveyor and finally author of this book. Even while a deputy sheriff in Cochise County, Curly Bill's partner in crime Tom Wallace had threatened Breakenridge, Curly Bill made Wallace apologize since he did not want to be on the wrong side of the sheriff. The Earp Brothers, Johnny Behan and John P. Clum were part of posses that pursued wild Apaches, stage coach robbers and others. Breakenridge knew Johnny Ringo who carried Greek and Latin classics in his saddlebags which he could read. Since Curly Bill, Johnny Ringo and Earp Brothers gambled together, Breakenridge began to distance himself from the Earps, so he coined the term"Helldorado" which became the title of this book. Jeff Dykes said that this memoir "provides a revealing look at the sheriff's office from the underside, the view of the deputy sheriff." Besides the inscription on the front endpaper, he has boldly signed his name also under the frontispiece with the note-- Old Pueblo Club, Tucson, Arizona. One of the essential items on law and lawlessness in Tombstone from the cowboys who both worked on ranches and rustled cattle to the disgusted citizens who created their Vigilance Committees to do what the law could not (or would not) do. . Bound in light brown cloth lettered in dark brown, page. 127 has an old tape mend to gutter (holding loose page) otherwise a very good copy in the very scarce chipped pictorial dust jacket with chipping to spine ends and corners, edges rubbed, a scrape to front panel.

        Arabia of the Wahhabis.

      London: Constable & Co Ltd, 1928.. First edition. 8vo. xvi, 422, (2) pp. Publisher's green cloth, gilt lettered to the spine, inscribed by author on the half title "24.IV.28 To Doreen and Jasper Blunt / with the author's best wishes / for long years of happiness... 28.XI.28", his inscription concluding with a line in Arabic script which translates "Help thou a land while thou dwellest therein / and say not - "I am a stranger here". Frontispiece, 28 plates, 1 large folding map of Central Arabia and a full page plan of Buraida [Buraydah]. Some general wear to the binding, occasional spotting. Jasper Scawen Blunt served in the Royal Artillery from an early age and saw action in the Middle East towards the end of the First World War, including in Hejaz. He subsequently served as a British military attaché in Greece and Turkey before serving again in the Second World War, attaining the rank of Brigadier. This book was inscribed as a wedding present, the line of Arabic verse coming from the "Diwans" of the pre-Islamic poet Abid Ibn al-Abras with Philby clearly reflecting upon the itinerant lifestyle of a military family. Although he shared a forename and a surname with the celebrated writer and Arabist Wilfrid Scawen Blunt, incidentally also a friend of the Harry St. John Philbys, Jasper Scawen Blunt and he do not appear to have been close relatives, if at all. The connection between Blunt and Philby, who were near contemporaries, would therefore likely be their shared experiences serving in the Middle East and a keen interest in matters Arabian.

Three separately published works in three volumes. Each work ONE OF 775 COPIES (750 of these for sale) SIGNED BY O'NEILL; FIRST EDITION of "Strange Interlude." First two works in publisher's patterned cloth backed with black buckram, both with pictorial dust jacket and in (somewhat worn) publisher's slipcase with paper label; "Strange Interlude" in publisher's stiff vellum over bevelled boards, with original tissue dust jacket and (very worn and crudely repaired) original paper slipcase. First two works with 17 illustrations (eight in "Emperor Jones," nine in "Hairy Ape") by Alexander King, as called for. Top of "Ape" dust jacket spine neatly replaced, "Interlude" vellum quite spotted (as almost always with this book), tissue jacket of "Interlude" rather torn and creased, otherwise very well preserved: the printed jackets generally clean and fine, and the volumes themselves unworn and internally without significant signs of use. This is a pleasing group of signed limited edition copies of three ground-breaking plays by the only American playwright to win the Nobel Prize for literature. The story of a railway porter who becomes the oppressive dictator of a West Indian island, "The Emperor Jones" (1920) was the play that made O'Neill (1888-1953) famous. In it, O'Neill begins to demonstrate the innovations Day considers his great contribution to American theater: "naturalism, expressionism, modern psychology, previously forbidden themes, and previously unknown plumbing of psychic and spiritual depths." It makes great use of the soliloquy, one of O'Neill's favorite devices: in six of the eight scenes, Jones is the only character who speaks. "The Hairy Ape" (1922) deals with issues of belonging and alienation, revealing O'Neill's sympathy with the laboring class oppressed by the wealthy and privileged elite. O'Neill won his third Pulitzer Prize in eight years for "Strange Interlude," an experimental play that was, in Day's words, "a surprisingly popular success although its nine acts consume five hours." Its story of a 20th century Everywoman touches on the issues of promiscuity, abortion, insanity, and adultery (the controversial content perhaps explaining some of its popularity). This grouping is intended to provide an opportunity to acquire three signed copies of important American plays at an advantageous price.

      Drei eh. Briefe u. ein masch. Brief, alle mit eh. U. Ägina, Athen u. Berlin, 8. IX. 1924 - 22.II. 1928. - 8°. u. 4°. Zus. 11 SS.- Knickfalten, leicht gebräunt.- Beiliegend 2 eh. Kuverts (Briefmarken ausgeschnitten). Alle an Bernhard Rang.- 8. IX. 1924: Er teilt mit, daß er sich große Sorgen um dessen Vater, Florens Christian Rang (1864–1924), macht u. schreibt: ". es wäre mir sehr schwer, wenn ich ihn nicht wiedersehen sollte. . - Ich las eigentlich wenig über Astrologie. Einmal etwas u. ein tollnärrisches Werk .". - Es folgen noch einige astrologische Betrachtungen u. der Hinweis, daß sich der Adressat an Dr. Franz Spunda in Wien wenden könne. - Der Brief schließt: "Hoffentlich kann ich bald nach Griechenland zurück, ein viertel Jahr sogar nach Deutschland kommen. Ich habe etwas mehr Zuversicht. Vielleicht auch, weil ich mir, nach 3 1/2 Jahren Kämpfen fürs Nordlicht, 1 Jahr Waffenstillstand gönne". - 13. IX. 1924: ". Da meines Bleibens in Athen nicht ist, fahre ich nach Alexandria u. dann weiter". Daher wird er "längere Zeit nichts Geistiges . produzieren, sondern Journalismus . treiben". Da er weiß, "dass nunmehr viele Deutsche sich gern u. tief mit meinem Werk beschäftigen", möchte er dies desto eifriger weiterführen. "Das ist aber, bei diesen Umständen, fast unmöglich". - Am 19. IX. 1924 teilt er mit, daß "alle, besonders auf der Gesandschaft, Partei" für ihn ergreifen u. er beschlossen hat, Athen zu verlassen. Weiterhin berichtet er über die Schwierigkeiten hinsichtlich seines Arbeitens. - Im Brief aus Berlin vom 22.II. 1928 schreibt er: "Gern lass ich Ihnen die Bücher zugehen, die Sie nicht zu haben scheinen. Eines enthält doch das Sonnett an Ihren Vater. Es heisst 'An Plato', ist aber duchaus dem eignen Freund geweiht. Mein Niedergang beruht darauf, daß sehr viel, aber nichts Treffliches über mich gesagt wurde. Sehr schmerzlich war es für Ihren Vater und mich, dass damals sein Aufsatz über das Nordlicht keine Unterkunft fand. Seit vier Jahren dichte ich nicht mehr, seit drei Jahren forsche ich nicht mehr. Nicht ich habe darüber entschieden, des Schicksals Bescheid hat mich vom Wege gedrängt".- Theodor Däubler unternahm 1921-26 eine Griechenlandreise mit Aufenthalten in Kleinasien, Palästina u. Ägypten. In dieser Zeit arbeitete er an der dritten, der Athener Fassung seines Hauptwerks "Das Nordlicht", die er 1930 in Frankreich vollendete u. die ungedruckt blieb.

      - Schwarze Kreide und Pinsel in Grau, auf Bütten, verso numeriert „N: 501". 11,2:22 cm. - Durchgehend etwas braunfleckig, sonst tadellos. Provenienz: Sammlung Prinz W. Argoutinsky-Dolgoroukoff, Paris, Lugt Suppl. 2602 d; versteigert in Berlin 8.11.1928, Nr. 523; Sammlung Adolf Gruis, Berlin, nicht bei Lugt. Literatur: Beck Z 705. Die produktivste Zeit van Goyens als Landschaftszeichner fällt in die Jahre 1651-1653. Die hier vorgestellte Zeichnung ist als autonomes Kunstwerk entstanden, auch wenn sie nicht signiert ist. Die Kreidelinien werden durch den unterschiedlich stark ausgeübten Druck modelliert und die Zeichnung mit Tuschpinsel laviert. Hierdurch erreicht der Künstler eine mehr malerische als graphische Wirkung. Das Format des Blattes entspricht mehr oder weniger der Standardgröße der bildmäßig ausgeführten Zeichnungen van Goyens. Jan van Goyen ist einer der bedeutendsten holländischen Landschaftsmaler des 17. Jahrhunderts. Nach Studien bei fünf verschiedenen Meistern (um 1606-um 1610) bildete er sich autodidaktisch weiter. Um 1615 ging er für etwa ein Jahr nach Frankreich und arbeitete danach einige Zeit selbständig in Leiden. Auf seine drängenden Bitten hin ermöglichte ihm sein Vater ein weiteres Studienjahr in Haarlem bei Esaias van de Velde (um 1591-1630). Diese Zeit hinterließ den nachhaltigsten Eindruck und machte sich in van Goyens Werk deutlich bemerkbar. Danach kehrte er zunächst nach Leiden zurück, zog jedoch 1632 nach Den Haag, wo er verstarb. Mit den Jahren wurde van Goyen zu einem bedeutenden Naturschilderer, der die Farbstimmung jeder Tages- und Jahreszeit hervorragend einzufangen wußte. Ganz im Gegensatz zu den Gemälden, die meist nicht vor der Natur entstanden, hat der Künstler um so „fleißiger vor der Natur gezeichnet. Tausende, z.T. aus aufgelösten Skizzenbüchern stammende, meist mit schwarzer Kreide gezeichnete Studien, legen davon Zeugnis ab. Wie die Gemälde, kennzeichnet sie ein flotter, loser Strich." (zitiert aus: Thieme/Becker, Bd. XIV, S. 462).

Ich sagte Ihnen schon, dass mein Berliner Fontane-Vortrag im Wesentlichen aus der Einleitung bestand, die ich für die Reclam’sche, im Februar erscheinende Ausgabe seiner Werke geschrieben habe, und es kommt hinzu, dass auch das Reclam’sche ‚Universum’ im Januarheft den Aufsatz zu bringen beabsichtigt. Ich möchte Ihnen doch noch einmal zu überlegen geben, ob es lohnt, den Vortrag unter diesen Umständen für Ihre Mitglieder als Privatdruck herzustellen, aber ich gebe Ihnen das nur zur Erwägung, denn mir persönlich würde der Druck natürlich Vergnügen machen [ ]". - Auf Briefpapier mit gedrucktem Briefkopf.
