The museum was originally based mainly on Andersson's groundbreaking discoveries in China, during the 1920s, of a hitherto unknown East Asian prehistory. The museum today has wide-ranging collections and exhibits of Asian archeology, classical arts, and culture, and a large Asia research library open to the public. The last time the museum published a comprehensive catalog was 1963 (Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities: Album). The museum also publishes an annual journal focused on research on ancient East Asia, the Bulletin of the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities.

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.

      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.

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.

A bright near fine copy with the spine gilt bright in the rare original dust jacket which has some reinforcement to the verso. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. American novelist, Thomas Wolfe "made it possible to believe that the stuff of life, with all its awe and mystery and magic, could by some strange alchemy be transmuted to the page" (William Gay). "Look Homeward, Angel is one of the most important novels of my life. . . . It's a wonderful story for any young person burning with literary ambition, but it also speaks to the longings of our whole lives; I'm still moved by Wolfe's ability to convey the human appetite for understanding and experience" (Elizabeth Kostova).
