The last time the museum published a comprehensive catalog was 1963 (Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities: Album).

        Letters of Tribute to William Gillette On The Occasion of His Farewell to the Stage In His Famous Creation ?Sherlock Holmes?

      An exceptionally large poster; 64 x 44?; backed with slightly larger linen for preservation, enabling it to be unrolled without damage. Numerous creases from folds; some small chips, tears and minor discolorations; printed in two colors. At the start of his ?Farewell Tour,? in New York?s New Amsterdam Theater, November 25, 1929, the author-playwright was presented with a book of congratulatory letters from many prominent contemporaries. This poster reproduces those in facsimile, surrounding Steele?s iconic image of Gillette as Holmes, depicted in dressing gown and with a pipe in his mouth. Accompanied by Letters of Salutation and Felicitation Received by William Gillette On The Occasion of His Farewell to the Stage in ?Sherlock Holmes,? setting in type 62 of these letters, including testimonials by Doyle, Coolidge, Belasco, Frohman, C.D. Gibson, Otis Skinner, et al.; in original printed wrappers, with Holmes in profile on the front wrapper; very good. Gillette continued touring as Holmes until 1932. Retirement was an unwelcome alternative for Gillette, who continued to appear on stage until shortly before his death in 1937.

Laid in is the original publisher's annoucement (4p.). Book label of the noted anthorpologist Frederick Webb Hodge. Also laid in is a photograph of Dobie inscribed on the verso: "Dear Fred Hodge, I love you, Frank Dobie in Calif. March, 1956)." Letter dated 11/20/29 to Dr. Hodge: Please accept this with my compliments...I know Dobie and am convinced he has the best background to write about the cow country of any body who has ever attempted it. If you like it, say a good word for it." Regards; undecipherable. Also laid in are two reviews from the New York Times (November 4, 1929) and the Yale Review (1930).

        THE BLACKER THE BERRY. A Novel of Negro Life.

      New York: The Macaulay Company. 1929 - Fine in brown cloth with black lettering and design on the front panel and spine. The binding is firm and there are no markings in the text, which is bright and crisp. The dust jacket by Aaron Douglas is very good or better, just showing some light rubbing on the front panel. Douglas has signed the front jacket panel, in the plate, with his initials A D at the lower left and lower right corners. This jacket is extremely rare and we have never come across another copy or seen a pictorial reproduction. Thurman and Douglas had been collaborating on various projects for several years, including the literary magazine Fire!! A Quarterly Devoted to Younger Negro Artists, and Harlem, a play about the black belt that was given at the Apollo Theatre. Thurman's The Blacker The Berry is considered to be one of the most important novels of the Harlem Renaissance and has been republished as part of the recent two-volume collection of Harlem Renaissance works in the distinguished Library of America series of classic American literature.

        THE NEW FORGET-ME-NOT: A Calendar (A FINE Copy of the First Edition in a FINE Original Dust Jacket, Limited to 300 Copies SIGNED BY REX WHISTLER)

      London: R. Cobden-Sanderson, 1929. London: R. Cobden-Sanderson, 1929. Whistler, Rex & Various Authors. THE NEW FORGET-ME-NOT. A Calendar. A limited edition of 360 copies (this one is #341) signed by the incomparable Rex Whistler whose charming illustrations make this book an exciting work of art. The fact that there are dozens of prose contributions to THE NEW FORGET-ME-NOT by virtually all of the leading writers of the day surely is testament to Whistler's (well-connected) popularity. A Fine copy in half-vellum and decorated boards, the blue vellum spine and corners have faded to pale whitish-blue (as in most copies we've examined, an organic flaw in the book's production as this book otherwise is nearly as new). What is remarkable about this particular copy is that a previous owner, likely the initial owner, created a home-made protective cover for the book so that THE ORIGINAL DUST JACKET IS IN FINE IMPECCABLE CONDITION with only the most minor of faults. The eye appeal is rather spectacular. Complete with rare errata slip, often missing.. Signed. First Edition. Pictorial Cover. Fine/Fine. Illus. by Rex Whistler.

Publisher's black cloth over purple boards, lettered in gilt; in the original green dust jacket, with an illustration of Judas to the front panel in blue, lettered in dark blue and black.

This copy is inscribed by Robinson Jeffers to his friend and fellow author James M. Hopper. Jeffers inscribed this volume at Tor House, the home he built for his family in Carmel-by-the-Sea in California and the location at which he wrote the majority of his novels. Both Jeffers and Hopper, along with their contemporaries George Sterling, Upton Sinclair, Sinclair Lewis, and Jack London, were part of the group of authors that helped establish Carmel as a literary and artistic refuge in Monterey County. Although neither was a native of California, both Jeffers and Hopper ultimately settled in Carmel. Dear Judas is a collection of eight poems, including two longer poems, "The Loving Shepherdess" and "Dear Judas," as well as six shorter verses, "The Broken Balance," "Birth-Dues," "The Humanist's Tragedy," "Evening Ebb," "Hands," and "Hooded Night." In the titular poem, Jeffers retells the story of Jesus's passion story as a Noh play. In "The Loving Shepherdess," Jeffers tells the story of a female Christ figure as she travels up the California coast towards her ultimate fate of death during childbirth.. Inscribed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.
