        Letter from Maxfield Parrish to his son Dillwyn

      Windsor, VT: n.p., 1928. A.L.s., 4 pages. Four page autograph letter from American artist/illustrator Maxfield Parrish (1870-1966), postmarked Windsor, Vermont, to his son Dillwyn. Addressed in care of John Sargent in Greenwich, Connecticut. Dated December 14, and postmarked December 15, 1928. Noted that Dillwyn's letter of December 12 "did not contain the news that you had secured the position of second vice-president of the General Motors Corp." Maxfield expressed his opinion that "a job is more easily obtained in a city not particularly teeming with new industries," offering the encouragement that "Something is bound to turn up in time." Maxfield Parrish expressed his pleasure that his son had "a haven like the Sargents' at Greenwich." Commented on events in Windsor and activities of friends and acquaintances. Signed "Dad." Accompanied by envelope.

        Confessions of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, The

      New York: Brentano's, 1928. - "It is too difficult to think nobly when one thinks only of earning a living" ROUSSEAU, Jean-Jacques. The Confessions of Jean-Jacques Rousseau.

A near fine set.Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712 - 1778) was one of the most influential thinkers during the Enlightenment in eighteenth century Europe. The Confessions is an autobiographical book by Jean-Jacques Rousseau. In modern times, it is often published with the title The Confessions of Jean-Jacques Rousseau in order to distinguish it from Saint Augustine's Confessions. Covering the first fifty-three years of Rousseau's life, up to 1765, it was completed in 1769, but was not published until 1782, four years after Rousseau's death, even though Rousseau did read excerpts of his manuscript publicly at various salons and other meeting places.

      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."

        Important Two Page Typed Letter Signed

      ("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"
