        Set of Four Enamel Plaques

      (Birmingham, England). Four colored enamels on copper, measuring 3 5/8 inches square, depicting scenes from the book of Genesis: "The Death of Abel," "The Brazen Serpent," "The Sacrifice of Isaac," and "The Angel of Passover." The enamels are executed in both subtle and vibrant tones against deep blue and green backgrounds. Great attention is paid to the shading of fabrics and the angel's wings, and to the flowers and foliage that accent the backgrounds. According to Glennys Wild, in "The Gaskins as Craftsmen," That Arthur should become interested in enamel is no surprise. His illustrations were linear, literary and narrative. His forte was as a draughtsman." Although Arthur and Georgie Gaskin incorporated enamels into their jewelry and metalwork, these plaques are one of very few recorded examples of Arthur Gaskin employing enamels in a pictorial manner. The plaques were a special commission, intended to become part of the decoration on a case for the Doves Press Bible. The project was planned by Gaskin and Laurence Hodson, but never completed. Nonetheless, Hodson considered these enamel plaques the finest Gaskin did, according to Wild, and they were exhibited as works of art in their own right. Hodson was an important collector, philanthropist, and patron of the arts who was particularly interested in the Arts & Crafts movement and the modern private presses of his day. He was also a supporter and close friend of the Gaskins. Included with the enamels are drafts or copies of two autograph letters from Hodson to F. C. Raines Smith, Esq., of the City of Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, dated March and May 1929. In the letters, Hodson corrects several mistakes in the catalogue for the Memorial Exhibition of Gaskin's work at the Museum and Gallery in 1929. The gravest error was committed in the description of the four enamels, which mistakenly stated that the plaques were intended for Gustave Doré's Bible, instead of for the Doves Bible. Offended, Hodson writes, "The vision of Arthur Gaskin & me poring over the Gustave Doré in rapt admiration, & discussing how worthily to house such a treasure, does credit to some naïve fancy!" The enamels are wrapped in plum-colored velveteen, and housed in envelopes with titles hand-written by Hodson. All are in very fine condition.

        Cup of Gold: A Life of Henry Morgan, Buccaneer, with Occasional Reference to History

      New York: Robert M. McBride & Company 1929 - First edition, first printing of Steinbeck's first book. A very good or better copy, with a lightly faded spine, minor rubbing to the extremities, some offsetting and a very minor abrasion on the front endpaper, with a former owner bookplate to the front pastedown. Overall, in very good condition. Cup of Gold is Steinbeck's first novel and only piece of historical fiction. The book is loosely based on the pirate Henry Morgan, whose two main goals are to conquer Panama City (the "cup of gold") and to win the heart of La Santa Roja, a woman rumored to be as beautiful as the sun. Although this was his first work and is somewhat unique in plot, Cup of Gold shows the author's early interest in themes he continued to use throughout his career as a writer: piracy and myth.

        The World Crisis: The Aftermath, 1918-1928

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1929 - This is a first edition, first printing in dust jacket of the fifth book in Churchill's acclaimed history of the First World War, titled "The World Crisis". This volume deals with the postwar years 1918 to 1928. Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, after the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli, Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. The U.S. is the true first edition, as U.S. Volume I publication preceded the British. Both the U.S. and British editions were originally published as six individual books between 1923 and 1931. Today, jacketed first editions are remarkably scarce - jacketed U.S. editions even more so than their British counterparts. This copy is near-fine in a very good minus dust jacket. The russet cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners, bright gilt, and nicely rounded spine. As is expected with a jacketed copy we note no toning of the spine and only trivial wear at extremities. The contents remain crisp and bright with no spotting and no previous ownership marks. We note only some age-toning to the untrimmed fore edge and some dust soiling to the top edge. The dust jacket is unclipped, still bearing the original $5.00 front flap price. The jacket has light overall edge wear and minor chipping, with losses to a maximum depth of .25 inch at the spine ends, a .5 inch triangular chip at the upper rear face, and a .75 inch deep closed tear at the upper front face. The spine is modestly and evenly toned with a faint stain at the tail. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover.

        [Thirty-One Albums of Original Prints of Photographs, Representing Kent's Personal Archive of Images of His Excursions to Greenland, Alaska, Denmark, Puerto Rico, the American Southwest, Monhegan Island, of His Honeymoon in New Hampshire and of His Home, Asgaard]

      [Various Places]. [ca. 1929 - 1960s].. Thirty-one 7.5" x 6" leatherette albums categorized and identified by spine labels, captioned in ink in Kent's hand, containing 1125 individual original matte and glossy black & white 7" x 5" gelatin silver prints. Slight surface variations characteristic of ferrotyping, and some spotting, scratches and other blemishes in the negatives are evident in the prints; some are printed slightly askew; some oxidation, fading or other signs of the amateur processing is evident on occasion, otherwise remarkably good. Until his death Rockwell Kent maintained this collection of thirty-one albums of prints of his own photographs, as well as some photographs taken by others in his company on certain occasions, all arranged, identified and labeled according to locations and subjects. Apart from their categorization by placement in the notebooks, some occasional prints are identified by Kent in ink or bear his stamp. Kent frequently recorded scenes, people and settings via photographs during his voyages and travels, many of which he utilized as reference material, and are identifiable as such, in the production of his illustrations, prints and paintings made during and after his journeys. Kent made three trips to Greenland, first in 1929, and then in 1931-2 and 1934-5, and photographs from these three trips constitute the largest single subject element in the archive. The subjects break down generally as follow: 1) Greenland. 16 albums, including 549 images. 2) Asgaard. 8 albums, including 293 images. 3) Alaska. 1 album, including 46 images. 4) Monhegan Island. 2 albums, including 84 images. 5) Arizona, Colorado, California. 1 album, including 28 images. 6) Puerto Rico. 1 album, including 51 images. 7) Denmark. 1 album, including 43 images. 8) Hillsboro and Richmond. 1 album, including 31 images. Although obviously best known for his book illustrations, works on paper and paintings, Kent was sufficiently renowned as a photographer during the 1930s that some of his photographs were reproduced in photogravure in a portfolio, MODERN MASTERS OF PHOTOGRAPHY, SERIES 1 PICTORIALISTS, published by the Galleon Press. While those photogravures turn up separately with some frequency - usually well outside of their original context in the portfolio - individual original prints from negatives of Kent's photographs are scarce. We note as reference the appearance of a single Greenland print, also represented by a print in this archive, and in the same format, with Kent's ink rubber stamp on the verso: Swann Galleries, 15 May 2008, Lot 341, ($1300). ^Further details about the archive are available upon request.

      1929. [EHON - BOTANICAL] Tanigami KO^NAN, artist. SHO^KEI KAKICHO San. Kyoto, Unso^do^, Sho^wa 4 [1929]. There is a complex series of puns involved with the titling of this work. Suffice it to say that the title describes a collection of designs of flowers and grasses of an unusually large size. They are, indeed, unusually large for the genre. Each of the 10 double page prints is approximately 31 x 44.5 cm in image size within the printed borders. This volume is volume 3 of 3. Very delicate and lovely printing in very nice condition. Within edgeworn cloth over board covers, printed silk title label.

        Spring Long Shore

      [Kent, CT: printed by the Meriden Gravure Company for Rex Brasher Associates, circa 1929-1932]. Quarto. (12 x 9 3/4 inches). 7 sheets (11 x 7 1/2 inches), with integral illustrations (6 after Brasher, 3 after photographs), mounted recto and verso of 4 sheets of larger blue-toned paper. Original card wrappers, illustrated titling to the upper cover, glassine wrapper. A unique off-print, specially prepared by Brasher for the man who shared his dream. E. Harold Hugo (1900-1985), or 'Al' as Brasher knew him, started work for Meriden Gravure Company, at 14. By the time he first met Brasher in the late 1920's he was a sales manager for the firm, and during World War II, he became general manager and in 1950 was named a director. He became president in 1969 before retiring in 1975. It is generally acknowledged that his greatest business achievement was to ensure that, under his leadership, the company won international renown for the quality of its work, but, perhaps his greatest individual business decision was to champion Rex Brasher's cause within his firm, a cause that was quickly taken up by company's president, Parker Allen. The company went on to provide (at very favourable rates) the uncoloured gravures that Brasher needed to illustrate his masterwork The Birds and Trees of North America, self-published by Brasher between 1929 and 1932, with 867 plates and numerous other illustrations. Brasher's nephew wrote of this deal: "The compact with Merdiden Gravure officers was altogether heartwarming and inspiring. Here were business men - almost total strangers, indifferent to security of any kind, willing and anxious to help a white- haired man realize a dream. ... It was ... a tribute to Rex. It was a tribute to his work. There could be no other inference. Rex could not help feeling a great flooding surge of satisfaction and new confidence" (M.E. Brasher Rex Brasher Painter of Birds p. 269). The present unique work, warmly inscribed with a small caricature self-portrait by Rex, was evidently intended by him as a small thank you to the salesmanager who became a friend. The text seems to correspond to that found in volume 11 of Rex's larger work (on Warblers, Wagtails, Pipits, etc.): the text which accompanies plates numbered 663-669 includes a narrative with the same title. The illustrated titling to the upper wrapper includes a version of the head-piece vignette on the first page of the text but is probably especially produced for this work. In effect it is a unique off-print, prepared by Brasher for Hugo because he had said how much he admired Rex's lyrical essay on the Long Island shore.
