        Frescoes from Buried Temples

      Flansham, Bognor Regis, Sussex: Pear Tree Press, (1928). Folio portfolio. (73)ff. One of 55 copies signed by the artist, James Guthrie, and the poet, Gordon Bottomley. Guthrie, the founder and the printer of the Pear Tree Press, wrote that "the designs and poems are... separate variations upon epical or elemental themes concerned with the beginnings of our planet and our race, and looking to that past for some intimations of the future of both." In the tradition of William Blake, he combined text and image, and used at least four different printing techniques in producing this book. It was the largest produced by the Press, and the one generally considered his masterpiece. Among the pictorial plates are sixteen intaglio etchings, seventeen prints from blocks covered in sculpted gesso, three woodcuts, and five "cuts," from wood or linoleum. Guthrie used a combination of colors in graduated tones for both relief and intaglio prints. The result is subtle and harmonious, and each copy is unique. Some are printed on black paper and tipped-in, and some use metallic inks. The approximately 30 pages of text are all printed in color, from etched plates which combine calligraphy and illustration. At least one plate was rolled with gold ink, so that the letters show white on gold. Announcement and prospectus laid in. A truly beautifully book, unbound, as issued, in wrappers showing Adam and Eve, done with two color blocks. Wrappers show light wear at spine, with small split at upper joint, otherwise fine. Housed in the original slipcase, with the etched label. Box shows wear at extremities and split corners.

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."

        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.

Publisher's blue cloth, with white paper labels lettered in blue to the front board and spine; in the original white dust jacket, lettered in blue and red.

Peter Pan is the popular story of a mischievous young boy who refuses to grow up and spends his days flying and adventuring with his troop of Lost Boys on the island of Neverland. Peter Pan made his debut in Barrie's 1902 novel The Little White Bird, but his best-known appearances are as the title characters in Barrie's play and novels. The play Peter Pan was first produced in London at the Duke of York's Theater on December 27, 1904, and in 1906, Barrie published the chapters relating to Peter from The Little White Bird along with illustrations by Arthur Rackham in a separate edition entitled Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens. In 1911, Barrie published a different version of Pan's story as the 1911 novel Peter and Wendy. Though published over a decade later, this first edition of Peter Pan, or the Boy who Would Not Grow Up represents the first publication of the 1904 play format, which remains the most popular and earliest full version of the story. Today, the story is generally referred to by the shortened title Peter Pan.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.
