        A VINTAGE PORTRAIT OF THE MODERN AMERICAN COMPOSER HENRY COWELL BY EDWARD WESTON, INSCRIBED TO BLANCHE WALTON AND SIGNED BY COWELL

      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.

        Official R.E. Byrd Globe

      George F. Cram & Co., Indianapolis - This wonderful commemorative globe was editioned to celebrate Richard E. Byrd's historic Antarctic expedition of 1928-1930. In 1929, Byrd launched his famous flight to the Pole, becoming the first explorer to reach the South Pole by air, an accomplishment that earned him a Congressional Medal of Honor. A key on the continent lists Byrd's 1929 trip along with the journeys of his predecessors: Roald Amundsen, in 1911, and Robert Falcon Scott in 1912. As many historians have since reattributed the first verifiable claim to the South Pole to Amundsen, this commemorative globe is now a historical artifact in more ways than one. Other notable geographic features of the interwar period include the puppet state of Manchuria, French Indochina and French West Africa, and Italian Somaliland. The globe is colored with a muted glue-green for oceans and yellow for land. Nautical distances are marked in red. An Analemma scale in the south Pacific indicates the sun's declination and the equation of time for every day of the yeas. Some general light crackling and soiling to gores, a couple small scratches with paper loss, some light wear to stand. After serving in the Union army, George F. Cram (1842-1928) joined his uncle's map business and later established his own engraving and publishing firm in Chicago in 1869. As the city grew in significance as a transit hub, area publishing firms incorporated new railway routes that ran through the city into increasingly detailed and elaborate renderings of the country. Cram was especially regarded for his use of cerography, an innovative wax-engraving printing technique, that allowed for large-scale maps that could be easily a and efficiently updated. In the 1930s, the business moved to Indianapolis and began making globes, for which they are still known today. This globe exemplifies its work. Tabletop globe. 12 inch diameter. 18 inches tall including decorative cat-iron and turned wood stand on circular base. 12 chromolithograph gores. Circular overlabel in South Indian Ocean, signed below label. Some general light crackling and soiling to gores, a couple small scratches with paper loss, some light wear to stand.

        PETER PAN

      1928. Or The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up. London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1928. Original blue-grey cloth with cover and spine labels, with dust jacket. First Edition of Barrie's famous play featuring Peter Pan and Tinker Bell, the Darling children and Nana, and of course Captain Hook and Smee. "Peter Pan" first turned up as a relatively minor character in Barrie's 1902 novel, THE LITTLE WHITE BIRD. Then in December 1904 this play was first produced, but it was not published until 1928, as this volume in "The Uniform Edition of The Plays of J. M. Barrie." (In the interim, 1911 to be specific, Barrie wrote a narrative version which was published as the book PETER AND WENDY.)~Included in this book is Barrie's 29-page Dedication "To the Five" in which he relates how, decades earlier, he had created (with their help) Peter Pan. Although he identifies them here only as #s 1 through 5, these were the five sons of Arthur and Sylvia Llewelyn Davies, with whom Barrie (according to a biographer) was "obsessed." The boys' names were George, John, Peter, Michael and Nicholas, and in the play they appear as George (the father) Darling, John Darling, Peter Pan, and Michael Nicholas Darling.~This volume is in fine condition; the dust jacket is near-fine, with one shallow chip at the foot of the spine and very light soil. Cutler pp 200-201.

        Official R.E. Byrd Globe

      Indianapolis: George F. Cram & Co.. Tabletop globe. 12 inch diameter. 18 inches tall including decorative cat-iron and turned wood stand on circular base. 12 chromolithograph gores. Circular overlabel in South Indian Ocean, signed below label. Some general light crackling and soiling to gores, a couple small scratches with paper loss, some light wear to stand. This wonderful commemorative globe was editioned to celebrate Richard E. Byrd's historic Antarctic expedition of 1928-1930. In 1929, Byrd launched his famous flight to the Pole, becoming the first explorer to reach the South Pole by air, an accomplishment that earned him a Congressional Medal of Honor. A key on the continent lists Byrd's 1929 trip along with the journeys of his predecessors: Roald Amundsen, in 1911, and Robert Falcon Scott in 1912. As many historians have since reattributed the first verifiable claim to the South Pole to Amundsen, this commemorative globe is now a historical artifact in more ways than one. Other notable geographic features of the interwar period include the puppet state of Manchuria, French Indochina and French West Africa, and Italian Somaliland. The globe is colored with a muted glue-green for oceans and yellow for land. Nautical distances are marked in red. An Analemma scale in the south Pacific indicates the sun's declination and the equation of time for every day of the yeas. Some general light crackling and soiling to gores, a couple small scratches with paper loss, some light wear to stand. After serving in the Union army, George F. Cram (1842-1928) joined his uncle's map business and later established his own engraving and publishing firm in Chicago in 1869. As the city grew in significance as a transit hub, area publishing firms incorporated new railway routes that ran through the city into increasingly detailed and elaborate renderings of the country. Cram was especially regarded for his use of cerography, an innovative wax-engraving printing technique, that allowed for large-scale maps that could be easily a and efficiently updated. In the 1930s, the business moved to Indianapolis and began making globes, for which they are still known today. This globe exemplifies its work.
