        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM THOMAS B CLARKE TO MANTLE FIELDING, DISCUSSING ARTISTIC BUSINESS MATTERS]

      New York, 1930. [2]pp. on a single. octavo sheet of stationery. Old fold lines, minor wear. Near fine. Noted art collector and Winslow Homer patron Thomas B. Clarke writes to Mr. [Mantle] Fielding on artistic business matters, discussing the current values of American art, etc. In part: "...Mr. Cochran (of J.P. Morgan & Co. has given several more American paintings to Andover Academy, among them 'Eight Bells' by Winslow Homer. In the 'Nineties' Homer asked me to come to his studio...on Washington Square. I went there and he said 'Clarke here is a picture that I have just finished working on, and I have named it 'Eightbells.' I said 'Mr. Homer will you sell it to me?' He replied 'Yes, and I will accept $400 from you.' In 1899... it fetched over $4000.... Levy sold 'Eight Bells' later to one of his clients.... This buyer 'parted with it' very recently for the Andover collection for the sum of seventy thousand dollars! Some commentators upon this sale say that this price was low! The rapid advances of certain works of art by American painters seems very remarkable to me.... My inclination for the selection of oil portraits from life was manifest in the sale of my collection, and at the end of the sale I started to accumulate the paintings now hanging in the Museum in Fairmount Park Phila. and in my residence here (there are 171 in all - I feel like hiding!). ... You and I have known of marvellous increases in the values of portraits of Washington by Stuart, Peale and others. Copley, Trumbull, Sully et al also lead in the great advances. In coming years will portraits by these men mount in value? I feel such a situation is absolutely certain...." Thomas Benedict Clarke (1848-1931), American patron and art collector, is considered by many to be the foremost patron of American painters during the late 1800s. He was praised for his attention to American artists at a time when they considered themselves neglected or ignored. Mantle Fielding is remembered today for his works on portraits of Washington.

        Principles of Clothing Selection [ Early 1930s College Course Project from Columbia University Teachers College Student ]

      Very Good. Ephemera. Over 80 loose sheets of manuscript entries illustrating the principles of women's clothing selection using magazine illustrations, cloth swatches, and hand-drawn color sketches. The project appears to be based on the textbooks Principles of Clothing Selection (1930) and Clothing for Women (1929). Home economics and fashion appeared in college curricula after World War I when more women moved into the workforce in professional roles and wardrobe needs changed. The sheets are contained in a worn envelope marked with the name of Hazel Stine, who received a B. S. In Education and Practical Arts from Columbia in 1933. Her observations on style show her preferences (or those of her professors) : "Trim and in quite good taste are the clothes worn by the conservative type." Ms. Stine's project also contains a candid self-assessment: "Weight--174 (much over-weight) ," a sketch of her body from head to toe, a listing of her "Bad Points", and a "Score Card for Personal Appearance." Her color drawings illustrating outfits she would choose for herself appear on two sheets. She received an A- for her effort. ; 14 1/2" x 9" .

        GENERALS DIE IN BED

      William Morrow: New York, 1930. Tan cloth lettered in red, black on white illustrated page edges, black top page edges. pp [14], 269, [5]. Yellowing and slight foxing to page edges, else fine. The striking yellow, black & red non-pictorial Art Deco jacket (by Wenck) has tiny chips to head of very lightly darkened spine; small narrow rubbed spot to rear spine fold; tiny chips to lower edge of front panel and outer corners; yellow rear panel has a 1 cm tear at bottom, minor dust soiling; else fine. First published earlier in 1930 by a small British publisher; Morrow having previously rejected the manuscript, ended up reprinting it a few times. This powerful tale is the most important Canadian World War I novel and no doubt one of the top ten WWI novels. Harrison was born in Philadelphia and by age sixteen was working for The Montreal Star. He enlisted with the Royal Montreal Regiment and was a machine-gunner in Belgium and France, wounded at Amiens in 1918, after which he returned to Montreal for a while before moving on to New York. The novel was praised by Ford Madox Ford, and in its partial appearance in magazines, including German ones, may have influenced Remarque in the writing of ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT. "The story of the looting of Arras by Canadian troops and their conflict with the English Military Police is told for the first time. But piquant as are these and many other revelations of the realities of war in and behind the lines, the real quality of the work lies in the exquisite, and withal unselfconsciousness, expression of the beauty and graciousness of human relationships, however startling and unorthodox, amid the foulness and brutality of that inferno." - jacket flap. See the two columns about Harrison in Toye, Oxford Companion to CanLit. Now quite scarce on the market in any sort of dust jacket. This is a lovely copy, by far the best I have ever seen, very scarce indeed in this condition. Binding: Hardcover. .

First Impression (no further printings noted), one of only 2000 copies of the author's first title published in the United Kingdom, with preface by Richard Hughes (who wrote "A High Wind in Jamaica" and, incidentally, helped launch Faulkner in England). 8vo: xii,326,[6, including four pages of publisher's advertisements]pp. Publisher's coarsely woven aquamarine cloth, spine lettered in gilt, top edge stained aquamarine, bottom edge uncut; cream-colored dust dust jacket printed in red and black, priced 7s/6d. Dennis Wheatley's copy, with his bookplate on front paste down. Top edge spotted, others lightly browned, otherwise about Fine, square and tight, in better than Near Fine jacket, the spine dust-soiled and a bit darkened, edges lightly rubbed and nicked. Petersen A2.14. In 1925, Faulkner moved to New Orleans where he joined a literary circle centered on Sherwood Anderson and was introduced to the modernist innovations of T. S. Eliot and James Joyce. His interest in experimental writing was piqued, and he began a novel, his first, Soldier's Pay, portraying the tragic homecoming of a wounded war hero. Though set in Georgia, it was, nonetheless, a kind of rehearsal for the later Mississippi novels, full of despair and "mythic motifs of impotence and futile love." (The Literary Encyclopedia) Wheatley's stylish thrillers and occult novels made him one of the world's best-selling writers from the 1930s through the 1960s. His Gregory Sallust series was a key inspirations for Ian Fleming's James Bond stories.

        ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR STORYBOARDS CREATED BY DOOLEY DIONYSIUS, A SAINT LOUIS, MISSOURI ARTIST WHO WORKED FOR THE WALT DISNEY STUDIOS, AND THE PUBLIC WORKS OF ART PROJECT (PART OF THE CIVIL WORKS ADMINISTRATION, A PRECURSOR TO THE WPA) IN THE 1930's

      1930. A group of 57 meticulously hand-drawn and richly colored illustrations by Dooley Dionysius: 24 panels created to illustrate "Pinocchio," each approx. 14 1/2 x 11 1/2 in., on stiff buff card stock or art paper (including a mock-up of the title page, 16 panels split between a color illustration and a penciled sample line or two of text, 1 page of black & white design illustrations for chapter ends, and 6 full page color illustrations); and 33 panels for an original tale entitled "The Story of the Taj Mahal," on stiff buff card stock or art paper, in varying sizes from 9 x 12 in. up to 16 1/2 x 23 in. (including a full color title page, a pen & ink and black watercolor title page, 24 pen & ink and black watercolor illustrations, and 7 full color illustrations, 5 of which are matted [some old staining to mats]). Traces of mounting on versos of most of the images. Dionysius was known for his almost microscopic brush strokes, fanciful designs, and jewel-like painting, often compared by critics to Persian miniatures. His work was exhibited in many St. Louis galleries in the 1930's (including the St. Louis Art Center where two of the "Pinocchio" drawings were displayed), as well as at shows in Los Angeles, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the California Water Color Society, and Marguerite Zimbalist's Twenty Dollar Gallery. Born in Kirkwood, Missouri, H.J. "Dooley" Dionysius attended the Washington University School of Fine Arts in the mid-1920's. He spent 10 years in Hollywood working alternately as a jewelry designer, an apprentice to Willy Pogany designing murals for William Randolph Hearst, and in the art department at the Walt Disney studios. In 1932, the Healy Galleries in St. Louis mounted a one-man show of his works. A story by Guy Forshey in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on March 13, 1932 describes Dionysius' work: "His subject matter is of a nature that lends itself admirably to his peculiar style of treatment. He paints pure fancy. His scenes are almost invariably placed on lost continents or in lands which have existed only in the imagination of men.... Unlike most water color painters, he does not blend color into color, but builds color on color producing an opaque effect." He often worked in miniature, and critical reviews of his watercolors remark on their exotic nature: "The tiny still life arrangements of flowers remind one of medallions in enamel or semi-precious stones. In all of these the draughtsmanship is meticulous and the compositions are so perfectly in balance that you do not think of such an element as deliberate composition in connection with them. You feel the rhythm of the dancing figures, the swing of the boats and the swell of the waves...." His work for the PWAP/CWA during the 1930's included creation of a mural of Mother Goose for the Benton School Kindergarten in St. Louis. Dionysius' ambition was to write and illustrate childrens books. According to brief biographies in "Artists in California, 1786-1940," by Edan Hughes and in "Who's Who in American Art 1936-41," he was the author/illustrator of two books, "Black Opal," and a version of "Mother Goose Rhymes." The Census records of 1940, record him in New York City as a lodger, his profession listed as "illustrator," most likely looking to find a market for his other book designs. We have found no record that either his "Pinocchio" or his "Story of the Taj Mahal" was ever published.

        Bruyère - fashion design 1930s.

      "Diner au cabaret??Modetekening van de collectie van Marie-Louise Bruy?re. Medio jaren 1930. Gouache op grijs papier.Mme. Bruy?re (1884-?) was geboren op het Franse platteland, maar haar ambitieuze ouders verhuisden naar de groeiende voorsteden van Parijs, waar het hen voor de wind ging. Ze woonden in het chique Saint Gratien, waar ook Princesse Mathilde (het nichtje van Napoleon I) woonde. Ze volgde haar opleiding bij Cheruit en vervolgens bij Lanvin. In 1928 opende ze haar eigen ?Bruy?re Couture??, en met haar collectie van begin 1930 plaatste ze zich tussen de toonaangevende jonge ontwerpers van haar tijd zoals Schiaparelli, Alix, Rochas en Mainbocher. Haar faam groeide internationaal, waardoor ze in 1937 een grand salon aan de Place Vend?me kon openen. Haar kleding was chique, zeer draagbaar en bovenal modieus, opvallend door subtiele en ongewone design elementen. Met twee shows per jaar van elk 200 modellen, had ze een enorme productie en had in 1947 328 medewerkers. Haar bedrijf groeide tot midden jaren 1950. Als men dan overstapt naar prêt-a-porter gaat het na een paar jaar ten onder.Prijs: ?750,- (incl. lijst).

        IT WALKS BY NIGHT

      New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1930., 1930. First edition. First edition. Publisher's "A-E" code on copyright page. Author's first novel. Former owner's neat inked name on the front pastedown sheet (completely covered by the dust jacket flap), with yellow Harper's seal at back of book removed (as is nearly always the case), leaving only a tiny remnant attached to page.211 and the rear fly leaf. Near Fine, bright copy in dust jacket with gentle sunning to spine, with light restoration to the spine ends and corners. Carr's first novel, a formidable locked-room mystery introducing his flamboyant Parisian character Henri Bencolin. Bencolin's case involves "an impossible murder in a gambling club - the victim, seen to enter an empty room with all entrances under observation, is subsequently found there, beheaded" (Twentieth-Century Crime and Mystery Writers (2nd ed.), p.146). Dust jacket promotional blurb says "When the police burst into the ante-room of a smart Paris gambling house, they find a mangled body thrown across the floor, while staring at them from the center of the empty room was the severed head of the Duc de Seligny. So begins a mystery story as weird and terrifying as any ever contrived by Poe. All the wiles of Bencolin, most satanic, most lovable of modern detectives, were needed for its solution." A crime fiction highspot housed in a clamshell case with the dust jacket design shown on the case.

        The World Crisis: 1911-1914

      London: Thornton Butterworth, Ltd., 1930. First edition, 8th printing. Hardcover. This is a jacketed copy of the British first edition, first printing, eighth and final printing of the first volume of the Churchill's monumental history of the First World War, in which he played such a critical, controversial, and varied role. This volume covers the first four years Churchill spent as First Lord of the Admiralty, as well as the beginning of the war. Many consider the British edition aesthetically superior to the U.S., with its larger volumes and shoulder notes summarizing the subject of each page. Unfortunately, the smooth navy cloth of the British first editions proved quite susceptible to wear and dulling, the contents prone to spotting and toning. Truly bright and clean bindings are seldom seen without the original dust jackets, and the dust jackets are exceptionally scarce. There were eight printings (between 1923 and 1930) of the first edition of this first 1911-1914 volume. This jacketed 1930 eighth and final printing of closely conforms to the appearance of the 1923 first printing. The dust jacket print is the same on the spine, front panel, and front flap, with substantive differences only to the rear panel, which adds advertisements for the subsequent volumes in the series, and the rear flap, which adds “Press Notices”. The binding is identical to that of the first printing with the sole exception of the addition of a single, five-pointed gilt star on the spine, denoting that this is the first volume. Given the similar shelf appearance of both jacket and binding, this copy offers the prospect of filling a jacketed first edition set at a far more modest cost than a first printing. Condition is near fine plus in a dust jacket that approaches near fine. The blue cloth binding is square, tight, immaculately clean, and strikingly bright, with sharp corners, perfectly rounded spine, vivid spine gilt, and no appreciable wear. The contents remain crisp and bright; the volume feels unread. A trivial hint of spotting appears confined to the otherwise clean page edges. A single previous owner name is neatly inked to the upper front free endpaper. The front free endpaper and facing front pastedown also show small rust stains consonant with two small paperclips that may have been laid in at one point. The dust jacket is complete apart from fractional chipping at the spine head. The panels and flap folds remain bright. The jacket spine shows moderate, uniform toning and a few faint stains, but nonetheless provides quite good shelf appearance. The jacket is protected beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. Of The World Crisis, Frederick Woods wrote: "The volumes contain some of Churchill's finest writing, weaving the many threads together with majestic ease, describing the massive battles in terms which fitly combine relish of the literary challenge with an awareness of the sombre tragedy of the events." 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 part of his 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.
