        Radio Corporation of America Five Volume Boxed Set: Advertising Radio to the American Public; Radio in the World War and the Organization of an American-Owned Transoceanic Radio Service; The Development of the Radio Art and Radio Industry Since 1920; A Resume of Early Radio Developments; The Distribution and Merchandising of Radio Equipment

      Radio Corporation of America, 1928. Stapled Binding. Near Fine. Wear to slipcase corners, booklets in exceptional condition. 1928 Stapled Binding. Five stapled binding softcovers in original wrappers, with slipcase. Published from a series of lectures delivered at Harvard University Business School in April 1928. A fairly early example of radio ephemera (broadcasts to the general public began in the later months of 1920). OCLC shows only 1 match for three titles (2 and 3 matches for the two others), these at the Harvard Business School itself, so it is likely these were not produced for distribution (the other sources are the New York Public Library and Yale). An exceptionally rare and important collection of early technology ephemera, particularly interesting for the volume dealing with the use of radio during World War I.

        President Truman writes his Secretary of the Treasury John W. Snyder, praising his newly elected Vice President Alben W. Barkley declaring that ?no President could have a finer or more capable partner than I will have ? a respected leader among all persons in all sections of this Nation ? he will be my strong right arm??

      "John W. Snyder?s close friendship with Harry S. Truman began in 1928 when Truman was a County Judge. They served together in the U.S. Army Reserves after World War I. Lt. Col. Snyder was in Col. Truman?s Missouri Regiment, the 381st Field Artillery, 102nd Division. Snyder served President Truman as his Federal Loan Administrator (1945), Director of the Office of Mobilization and Reconversion (1945-1946), and Secretary of the Treasury (1946-1953).Typed Letter Signed ?Harry S Truman? as President, one page, 8? x 10.5?. The White House, Washington, December 15, 1948. To ?Honorable John W. Snyder / Secretary of the Treasury / Washington, D.C.? Faint browning mark in left portion. Never folded. Fine condition. Typed ?COPY? in the upper left, this letter was signed ink by President Truman. The original signed letter to Snyder on White House stationery, most probably accompanying this letter, was presented to Barkley.In full, ?I am proud to be able to send a message to the gathering which honors Vice President-Elect Alben W. Barkley at Town Hall tonight and I wish that I were able to tell all of you in person what I think of Alben W. Barkley. I know that no President could have a finer or more capable partner than I will have in the four years that lie ahead. Senator Barkley?s leadership in the Senate and his skill as a legislator have won him an admiration all over the Nation which crosses party lines and makes Senator Barkley a respected leader among all persons in all sections of this Nation. I know that he will be my strong right arm as all of us in America tackle the problems that lie ahead and join together in our efforts to build a just peace and to continue to demonstrate to the world that our brand of democracy and our free enterprise economy are the best way of life. Tonight I honor Senator Barkley for the efforts he has made towards those goals in the past and for the further service to those goals that he will give as Vice President.?Accompanied by a photocopy of the article in the December 16, 1948, edition of ?The New York Times? headlined ?Barkley Is Praised / By Chief Executive,? subheaded ?Vice President-Elect Hailed as / ?Good Right Arm? at Dinner / Honoring Him Here.? In part, ?President Truman called Vice President-elect Alben W. Barkley the ?finest and most capable partner any President ant President could ever have.? He declared that Senator Barkley would be his ?good right arm? in the work ahead to make the nation and the world peaceful and prosperous. The President?s eulogy of his running-mate in the last campaign was in the form of a message read at a dinner honoring Senator Barkley, given by Town Hall Associates, at the Waldorf-Astoria last night. Senator Barkley is to receive the Town Hall award for distinguished service at Town Hall at 11 o?clock this morning. The dinner was attended by 1,500 persons, and the dais seated a large number of high-ranking Democrats, including four members of the Cabinet and half a dozen Senators or Senators-elect...? The article mentions the names of six speakers, in addition to Barkley, who spoke, including John W. Snyder."

      ("Wm Fox") to Jesse Lasky at Paramount-Famous-Lasky Corp., Times Square, New York City, on the new processes of producing talking films. 11" x 8 1/2" on his William Fox Fox Studio West 55th Street New York City letterhead, August 21, 1928. Very good (closed file holes at top edges).In part: "...You already know of my great interest in the successful development of talking motion pictures. I am anxious, therefore, too see your company produce movietone pictures that are as near perfect as it is possible to obtain from the experience we have gathered. I realize that one of the things that would retard your progress would be improper printing - and there is more danger of failure here than in any other step of the work. The only one that thoroughly understands the proper development and printing of sound pictures today is our laboratory..."Fox (1879-1952) was born in Hungary; originally named Wilhelm Fried. He founded the Fox Film Corporation in 1915 and the Fox West Coast Theatres chain in the 1920s.

        Lady Chatterley’s Lover

      1928. first edition. A Fine First Edition of “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” Complete with the Rare Dust Jacket and the Very Rare Original Glassine WrapperLaid in is a Signed Postcard from Lawrence to his Sister-in-LawLAWRENCE, D.H. Lady Chatterley’s Lover. [Florence]: Privately Printed [by the Tipografia Giuntina], 1928.First edition. Limited to 1,000 numbered copies, (this being copy number 596) signed by the author. Octavo. [4], 365, [3, blank] pp.Original mulberry boards with printed paper spine label. Front cover printed in black with the Lawrence phoenix. An exceptionally fine copy, completely unopened. In the original plain yellow dust jacket (jacket with a few a little worn and stained at spine extremities. Complete with the exceptionally scarce original glassine wrapper, a little worn and with some staining on spine.This is the finest copy of this book that we have ever seen. The original pale yellow dust jacket is unprinted, little more than a piece of wrapping paper, to both camouflage a “dirty” book and protect it during shipping, and the book underneath is so perfect as to leave little doubt that it was set aside untouched and unread, and covered with this dustjacket for all of its life. The original glassine wrapper has protected the paper dust jacket for all of it's life.Laid in is a postcard (written in German) from D.H. Lawrence, addressed to the Frau Baronin von Richthofen. There were two Baronin von Richthofens. One was Lawrence's wife Frieda and the other was her sister Else. Since Frieda was with Lawrence on this trip, the recipient was probably Else. In the postcard, Lawrence says he is traveling this morning to El Paso and is sending the pictures of the ranch today. The ranch was the Taos property, now known as the D.H. Lawrence Ranch, given to the Lawrence's by Mabel Dodge Luhan and was the place to which Frieda retired after Lawrence's death. The postcard is signed "DHL", is dated "Santa Fe. 18 Okt" and is postmarked October 18th, 1924.Lady Chatterley’s Lover is tripled with Ulysses and Tropic of Cancer as the seminal suppressed books from the first half of the twentieth century.Roberts A42a."No account of Lady Chatterley’s Lover can be complete without some notice of the most memorable review of the novel by Ed Zern, which appeared in Field and Stream for November 1959, p. 142 (see also The D. H. Lawrence Review 8 (Fall 1975) 376-377). It is short and reproduced here for the benefit of those who do not have access to a copy. The review was written as the result of a request from the editor, Hugh Grey, that Mr. Zern choose an outdoor book for review as a “sort of test case”.”“Although written many years ago, Lady Chatterley’s Lover has just been reissued by the Grove Press, and this fictional account of the day-to-day life of an English gamekeeper is still of considerable interest to outdoor minded readers, as it contains many passages on pheasant raising, the apprehending of poachers, ways to control vermin, and other chores and duties of the professional gamekeeper. Unfortunately one is obliged to wade through many pages of extraneous material in order to discover and savor these sidelights on the management of a Midland shooting estate, and in this reviewer’s opinion this book cannot take the place of J.R. Miller’s Practical Gamekeeping.”“Hereafter, no Lawrence collection can be said to be complete without a copy of Miller’s Practical Gamekeeping to place alongside Lady Chatterley’s Lover!” (Warren Roberts, p. 152-153).

        Variations: quatre-vingt-six motifs decoratifs en vingt planches

      Paris: Editions Albert Levy, no date [1928]. Nouvelle edition. A portfolio containing the complete set of 20 art deco pochoir coloured plates (hand coloured through stencils) by J. Saude on thick card, each 19 x 14 3/4 inches, with a printed title page, loose as issued. Some marginal age toning, some wear to a few outer margins of a few plates, 3 plates with slight colour marking to margins (which would have occured at the time of the original colouring); overall the plates bright, vibrant and fresh. The portfolio worn, scuffed and bumped, with loss at backstrip; the onlaid pochoir illustration is however in good condition. Stephen Calloway writes, in his introduction to the 1988 Bracken Books edition, "The plates present a number of designs which mght be suitable for woven or printed dress or furnishing fabrics, or even for wallpaper and decorative painting. These designs are grouped several to a page, sometimes to rather startling effect, for each is conceived in several rich colours, and the composite page is the result of twenty separate printings in different inks. Naturally, such intense labour and the cost of the lavishly employed pigments and metallic compounds made such productions extremely expensive in their time"

        Framed Historic Display! Rare signed hand-colored lithograph of ?The Wright brothers? ?Strange Contraption? rises at Kitty Hawk, 1903? ? published privately by the Wright Aeronautical Corporation ? matted with Kitty Hawk Wright Flyer fabric and two original turnbuckles from the U.S. Chief of Aircraft Production used on the Curtis ?Jenny? and DeHavilland DH-4

      "Hand-colored Lithograph Signed ?Orville Wright,"" image 12? x 16? (visible) matted with a 1? x .75? piece of fabric from the Kitty Hawk Wright Flyer, two turnbuckles used on the Curtiss ?Jenny? and the DeHavilland DH-4, and a 7.5? x 2.25? descriptive engraved metallic plate. Exquisitely framed to 22"" x 30.5"". Visibly fine condition. Artwork by Frank Lemon, this lithograph was published by the Wright Aeronautical Corporation for a corporate Christmas gift in 1928, in a set of seven prints titled ?Unforgettable Exploits of the Air.? When given as corporate Christmas gifts, each was numbered one of 500 issued, and was not signed by the pilot honored which makes this unnumbered hand-colored lithograph exceptionally rare and desirable because it was signed by Orville Wright.The one here offered is captioned ??The Wright brothers? ?Strange Contraption? rises at Kitty Hawk, 1903.? Other than Charles A. Lindbergh, the other six aviators honored were relatively unimportant to the history of aviation. A signed set of seven framed unnumbered prints (without the hugely important and valuable relics) including Wright and Lindbergh, sold at RR Auction in 2011 for almost $25,000 ($24,862.80). Provenance includes certification of the Kitty Hawk Wright Flyer fabric from Harvey D. Geyer, a close friend, associate, and employee of the Wright Brothers from 1910, who was appointed the technical advisor of the Wright Estate after Orville?s death in 1948. His Estate included some of the original coverings of the wings which had been removed when he had prepared the Kitty Hawk Flyer for public exhibition in London in 1928. The two turnbuckles from the Curtis ?Jenny? and DeHavilland DH-4 were presented to Louis P. Christman who, under the direction of Col. Edward Deeds, U.S. Chief of Aircraft Production in World War I, began the restoration of the 1905 Wright Flyer in 1947. Orville Wright worked closely with Christman in the project. Col. Deeds gave Christman these two turnbuckles, among other items, for his work in restoring the 1905 Wright Flyer and are from the Family of Louis P. Christman."

        Lady Chatterley’s Lover

      1928. first edition. A Fine First Edition of “Lady Chatterley’s Lover” Complete with the Rare Dust Jacket and the Very Rare Original Glassine WrapperLaid in is a Signed Postcard from Lawrence to his Sister-in-LawLAWRENCE, D.H. Lady Chatterley’s Lover. [Florence]: Privately Printed [by the Tipografia Giuntina], 1928.First edition. Limited to 1,000 numbered copies, (this being copy number 596) signed by the author. Octavo. [4], 365, [3, blank] pp.Original mulberry boards with printed paper spine label. Front cover printed in black with the Lawrence phoenix. An exceptionally fine copy, completely unopened. In the original plain yellow dust jacket (jacket with a few a little worn and stained at spine extremities. Complete with the exceptionally scarce original glassine wrapper, a little worn and with some staining on spine.This is the finest copy of this book that we have ever seen. The original pale yellow dust jacket is unprinted, little more than a piece of wrapping paper, to both camouflage a “dirty” book and protect it during shipping, and the book underneath is so perfect as to leave little doubt that it was set aside untouched and unread, and covered with this dustjacket for all of its life. The original glassine wrapper has protected the paper dust jacket for all of it's life.Laid in is a postcard (written in German) from D.H. Lawrence, addressed to the Frau Baronin von Richthofen. There were two Baronin von Richthofens. One was Lawrence's wife Frieda and the other was her sister Else. Since Frieda was with Lawrence on this trip, the recipient was probably Else. In the postcard, Lawrence says he is traveling this morning to El Paso and is sending the pictures of the ranch today. The ranch was the Taos property, now known as the D.H. Lawrence Ranch, given to the Lawrence's by Mabel Dodge Luhan and was the place to which Frieda retired after Lawrence's death. The postcard is signed "DHL", is dated "Santa Fe. 18 Okt" and is postmarked October 18th, 1924.Lady Chatterley’s Lover is tripled with Ulysses and Tropic of Cancer as the seminal suppressed books from the first half of the twentieth century.Roberts A42a."No account of Lady Chatterley’s Lover can be complete without some notice of the most memorable review of the novel by Ed Zern, which appeared in Field and Stream for November 1959, p. 142 (see also The D. H. Lawrence Review 8 (Fall 1975) 376-377). It is short and reproduced here for the benefit of those who do not have access to a copy. The review was written as the result of a request from the editor, Hugh Grey, that Mr. Zern choose an outdoor book for review as a “sort of test case”.”“Although written many years ago, Lady Chatterley’s Lover has just been reissued by the Grove Press, and this fictional account of the day-to-day life of an English gamekeeper is still of considerable interest to outdoor minded readers, as it contains many passages on pheasant raising, the apprehending of poachers, ways to control vermin, and other chores and duties of the professional gamekeeper. Unfortunately one is obliged to wade through many pages of extraneous material in order to discover and savor these sidelights on the management of a Midland shooting estate, and in this reviewer’s opinion this book cannot take the place of J.R. Miller’s Practical Gamekeeping.”“Hereafter, no Lawrence collection can be said to be complete without a copy of Miller’s Practical Gamekeeping to place alongside Lady Chatterley’s Lover!” (Warren Roberts, p. 152-153).

        Important Two Page Typed Letter Signed

      New York 1928 - ("Wm Fox") to Jesse Lasky at Paramount-Famous-Lasky Corp., Times Square, New York City, on the new processes of producing talking films. 11" x 8 1/2" on his William Fox Fox Studio West 55th Street New York City letterhead, August 21, 1928. Very good (closed file holes at top edges). In part: ".You already know of my great interest in the successful development of talking motion pictures. I am anxious, therefore, too see your company produce movietone pictures that are as near perfect as it is possible to obtain from the experience we have gathered. I realize that one of the things that would retard your progress would be improper printing - and there is more danger of failure here than in any other step of the work. The only one that thoroughly understands the proper development and printing of sound pictures today is our laboratory." Fox (1879-1952) was born in Hungary; originally named Wilhelm Fried. He founded the Fox Film Corporation in 1915 and the Fox West Coast Theatres chain in the 1920s. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Fastest Bicycle Rider in the World

      Worcester: Wormley Publishing Company,, 1928. The Story of a Coloured Boy's Indomitable Courage and Success Against Great Odds. An Autobiography. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine and front board lettered in gilt. With the dust jackets. Portrait frontispiece. Small marginal stain to the bottom edge; an exceptional copy in the faded jacket that has some loss to the spine ends and tips and some tape repairs to the verso. First edition, first impression, in the scarce jacket. The autobiography of the pioneering athlete Marshall Walter "Major" Taylor, who became the world champion in 1899 in the one mile sprint. He was also the second African-American world champion in any sport, after boxer George Dixon. Though celebrated in Europe and Australia, his career was held back by racism at home in the US, especially in the Southern states, where he was not allowed to compete, and the League of American Wheelman for a time explicitly excluded black cyclists. He retired from the track in 1910, at the age of 32. A fascinating book.
