        Autograph letter signed in German to Mr. Pollak

      1928. Freud, Sigmund (1856-1939). Autograph letter signed, in German, to Austrian artist Max Pollak (1886-1970). 1 page, on his personal stationery. Vienna, August 5, 1928. 230 x 150 mm. Fine. English translation included. To the painter and printmaker Max Pollak, thanking him for sending a copy of his color aquatint of the dancer Tatjana Barbakoff to “Frau Eitingon.” This refers to the wife of Freud’s colleague, the noted psychoanalyst Max Eitingon (1881-1943), who had undergone analysis with Freud in 1908-9 and went on to found the Berlin Psychoanalytic Clinic, the International Psychoanalytic Association and several other psychoanalytic organizations. The etching was evidently a gift from Freud, for he states that “I would gladly have sent the purchase amount of S140 or $20 to you in Stockholm, if I had been sure you wouldn’t soon be changing your location in Sweden. If I hear nothing more from you, then I will remain in your debt until we are both in Vienna again.” Pollak had recently emigrated from Vienna to the United States, which is why Freud gave a dollar figure for the purchase price. Freud had known Pollak since at least 1914, when Pollak was commissioned to make a large portrait etching of Freud seated at his desk among his antiquities. Freud himself owned a copy of Pollak’s etching of Barbakoff, which is now preserved at the Freud Museum in London. Regarding Freud as an art collector, see "Sigmund Freud and Art" (1989).

      Circa [1928].. [1928].. Good. INSCRIBED & SIGNED BY THE AMERICAN COMPOSER HENRY COWELL - A 10 inch high by 8 inch wide soft toned black & white photograph by Edward Weston, photographed circa 1928, of the American composer Henry Cowell wearing a Navajo shirt. Cowell is seen from the shoulders up gazing over his left shoulder. The portrait, which is a re-strike of the photograph on glossy photographic stock, is inscribed and signed diagonally in black ink at bottom right: "With Love Blanche / from / Henry". The photograph is faintly yellowed with some minor creases. The corners are slightly worn with a small piece out from the bottom right corner and a couple of tears to the right edge which are repaired and reinforced with archival linen tape from the verso. One of the tears, longer than the other, touches on the image and slightly touches on the upper loops of the letters "h" and "e" in "Blanche". The American composer Henry Cowell (1897-1965) was strongly influenced by Oriental music as well as Irish and Midwestern folk tunes. Exploring the music of Africa, Java, and India, he revolutionized American music with innovations such as tone clusters and directly plucking the piano's strings.Photographed by Edward Weston circa 1928, this vintage portrait appears to be a re-strike from the original photograph but not from the negative.The pianist and patron of new music Blanche Walton was a good friend to Cowell and in the 1920's had provided him with financial support and a base in New York City until her own financial collapse in the great depression. She contributed $100, a good sum at the time, towards the launch of Cowell's important periodical "New Music Quarterly".

        Lady Chatterley's Lover

      Florence: Privately Printed,, 1928. Octavo. Original reddish-brown boards, paper spine label, Lawrence's phoenix device printed in black on front cover, untrimmed. A little rubbing to front cover, ink splash at foot of page 41 (affecting a few words). An excellent copy. First edition, first impression, one of 1,000 copies numbered and signed by Lawrence. An excellent association copy, from the library of the writer Compton Mackenzie, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Ex Libris/ Compton Mackenzie" and with annotations by him on the rear free endpaper. Mackenzie first met Lawrence in 1914 and renewed the acquaintance on Capri in 1919-20. But there was a falling out: Lawrence based the character of Mr Cathcart in his short story "The Man Who Loved Islands" (1927) on Mackenzie and the latter objected to this because, as Mackenzie later explained to Lawrence's biographer H. T. Moore "Lawrence's fiction often gives a distorted view of his acquaintances because he had a trick of describing a person's setting or background vividly, and then putting into the setting an ectoplasm entirely of his own creation" (The Intelligent Heart: the story of D. H. Lawrence, p. 240). "The Man Who Loved Islands" was first published in the Dial in July 1927 and was due to be included in a collection of short stories entitled The Woman Who Rode Away (1928). Mackenzie and Lawrence shared the same publisher, Martin Secker, and after protestations from Mackenzie the story was pulled from the English edition.
