        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.

      Florence: Privately printed, 1928. Early printing, a pirated edition. Tall 8vo, original black moire pattered cloth with a paper label on the spine printed in red and black. 365. A pleasing copy, the black cloth a bit mellowed on the spine, a touch of expected shelving. This pirated edition was printed just shortly after the first edition and is nearly identical in format to the true first. These unauthorized pirated editions that followed the printing of the first edition would induce Lawrence in 1929 to write the essay "My Skirmish With Jolly Roger," A tirade against the numerous pirated editions of his book, the bookshops that discretely distributed them and, incidentally, against those who suggested he should issue an expurgated edition. It was not until 1960 that Penguin Books in London took on the risk of publishing an authorized edition in full and they were consequently prosecuted under the Obscene Publications Act 1959. The later acquittal proved a victory for not only the eminent authors who appeared as witnesses at the celebrated trial (including E.M. Forster, R. Hoggart, and H. Gardner) and Penguin Books, but for writing and publishing in general.

        The Philip Lehman Collection New York: Painting

      Calmann-Levy, Paris 1928 - Book. Elephant Folio - over 15. No 215 of 300 limitation, this being, with copies numbered 201 to 300 the more exclusive, with prints on velin d'Arches and mould-made paper with Philip Lehman's watermark specially manufactured by the Papeteries d'Arches (Vosges) . 105 plates, each measuring 19 by 15 inches, or 49 by 38 cm, all on a very heavy stock of paper, and each accompanied by tissue guard and a separate text page. Text pages with name of painting and artist on one side, text explanation, bibliographical reference on other. This collection formed the core of the Robert Lehman Collection donated to the Metropolitan Museum in 1969, today housed in its own wing of the museum. Vellum spine over vellum-colored cloth (or what might be a thinner vellum pasted to board). Gilt marbled endpapers, resembling a cross-section of a slab of granite. Large fox marks on blank preliminary page and title page, as well as final blank page. A lot of such foxing on a few of the table of contents pages and one page introduction by Robert Lehman. Afterward only occasional foxing, but such fox marks as there are tend to be splotchy. Most pages clean or essentially clean -- light foxing in foreedges sometimes diffused into page edge. All plates are attractive, and tissue guards are all intact, a few with creases resulting undoubtedly from heaviness and subsequent unwieldiness of book. Foxing as described is only issue with this extravagant production of a book, and but for it, the book would be deemed in fine condition. Still near fine. The book weighs about 22 pounds and so extra postage will be necessary. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
