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

      New York. March 26, 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.

        Studies in Secret Service Intelligence.

      Seems to be not published, but an offset of a typescript. 1930 - J.A. Kavanagh, Studies in Secret Service Intelligence. 1930 “Crime, like more reputable industries, has its recognized leaders—every branch of crime has its men and women who are known to be their guiding principles." This seems to be an offset copy of a not-quite-finished book project for an instructional on how to operate as a private detective. This DIY comes a few years after Continental Op and Same Spade, though it still seems to be in the early period when private eyes were becoming accessible to the public at large. I can find NO copies of this work in WorldCat/OCLC and neither hide nor hair in other references.

        Poems Edited with notes by Robert Bridges. Second edition with an Appendix of Additional Poems, and a Critical Introduction by Charles Williams.

      London: Humphrey Milford, 1930 - Octavo. Original blue cloth boards, titles to spine and front cover gilt, top edge trimmed, others untrimmed. With the plain paper dust jacket. Small white mark to bottom edge of boards, light offsetting to endpapers, occasional leaves uncut; a very good copy in the uncommon jacket, price-clipped, spine browned, faint foxing to covers and small nicks to extremities. With 2 facsimile signatures in the text. Second, and enlarged, edition, first impression. Gerard Manley Hopkins (1844–1889) published very few poems in his lifetime and destroyed many of his early writings in a crisis of faith - he had been received into the Roman Catholic faith by Cardinal Newman himself in 1866, and in 1868 made a bonfire of his juvenilia. It was only decades after his death that, collected and largely designed by Hopkins's friend and admirer Robert Bridges, the first edition of this "sensitive, handsome, and almost complete" collection was published (ODNB). Contemporary reviews were mixed though some were stridently positive, such as Theodore Maynard: "A shy mid-Victorian priest, writing while Tennyson, Swinburne and Patmore led their various schools, was more modern than the most freakish modern would dare to be. He is the last word in technical development." Sales were slow and it had only just sold out by 1930, when this "second edition was called for by the poetry public who were demanding new, difficult poetic voices. Advocated especially by I. A. Richards, F. R. Leavis, William Empson, and Michael Roberts, so that his poems appeared in general and modernistic anthologies, followed by university and school syllabuses, Hopkins had suddenly become a popular modern poet". Uncommon in the jacket, with only two copies traced at auction. Dunne A38.

        THE WORKS

      Oxford: Shakespeare Head Press, 1930-31. No. 302 OF 450 COPIES on paper (and 10 on vellum) n. This is the major modern fine press edition of Homer, with illustrations by one of the most popular woodcut artists of the period. The text here is Chapman's Homer, which Day calls "the greatest verse translation of the Renaissance" and perhaps "the greatest English translation of Homer." George Chapman (1559/60-1634) made his name as a poet and playwright before turning to translating classical literature. His was the first English translation of Homer to be done directly from the Greek, and it remained the standard translation until Pope's 18th century version. Chapman enjoyed a renewed popularity among 19th century poets: Keats composed a much-quoted sonnet, "On First Looking into Chapman's Homer," which begins "Much have I travell'd in the realms of gold"; and Swinburne said, "No praise can be too warm or high for the power, the freshness, the indefatigable strength and inextinguishable fire which animate this exalted work." Wood engraver, painter, illustrator, writer, and teacher John Farleigh (1900-65) had a style perfectly suited to an edition of Homer. In "A History of British Wood Engraving," Albert Garrett writes that "in terms of modern engraving, John Farleigh understood the purity of Greek engraving and largely formed his style upon the few known examples. Like the Greek engraver, he also understood the human form and could express it." He was one of the major engravers of the new British School, which focused on broadening the medium's range of expression and techniques.. 292 x 203 mm. (11 1/2 x 8"). Five volumes. Translated by George Chapman. No. 302 OF 450 COPIES on paper (and 10 on vellum). Publisher's original burnt-orange half morocco over cream-colored buckram, edges untrimmed. In a later paper-covered slipcase. With 52 wood engravings by John Farleigh, comprised of two frontispieces, woodcut-framed title pages to volumes I and V, and 48 full-page cuts. With ink ownership inscription of Daisy Patterson Hall on limitations pages. Ransom, p. 17; Franklin, p. 236; Horne, p. 185. Overall fading and significant chafing to spines, minor dressing residue to leather, faint dampstain covering about a third of the back cover of volume V (a few tiny stray stains on the spine of the same volume), but the bindings showing little wear, and the sides of the other volumes (often found foxed) virtually spotless and very pleasing.

      Collage. ca. 41 x 48,5 cm. Gerahmt. Mit eighd. datierter Signatur. - Trägerpapier etw. wellig. - Adrian, (1930 - 2008), wurde in Wien geboren. Nach der Matura studierte er ab 1950 an der Akademie der bildenden Künste Wien bei Fritz Wotruba sowie in Paris und Mailand. In den 50er und 60er Jahren stand der Künstler in einem Naheverhältnis zur Wiener Gruppe, er weitete das Feld der Bildhauerei und Malerei auf das Medium Film aus. Ausgangspunkte von Adrians Schaffen waren Plastik, Malerei, Op-Art, Computerkunst und konkrete Poesie. Parallel zu seinen literarischen, plastischen und bildenden Arbeiten schuf Adrian eine Reihe von avantgardistischen Filmen. Von Anfang an waren seine Streifen dabei eine Auseinandersetzung mit herrschenden Ideologien und behandelten Themen wie Gewalt, Sexualität, Macht und Staat, Wahrnehmung und Täuschung. Zunehmend begann er sich jedoch psychologisch-narrativen Themen zu widmen. Adrian gehörte in den 50er Jahren zusammen mit Peter Kubelka und Ferry Radax zur ersten Generation des österreichischen Avantgardefilms. Neben seiner künstlerischen Arbeit begann Adrian ab 1970, an künstlerischen Hochschulen u.a. in Hamburg, Cambridge und Wien zu unterrichten. 1988 war er österreichischer Vertreter bei der "Olympiade des artistes" in Seoul, Einzelausstellungen fanden zudem in Europa, den USA und Indien statt. Erste Auszeichnungen erhielt der Künstler bereits in den 60er Jahren: so wurde er u.a. 1992 mit dem Österreichischen Würdigungspreis für Filmkunst und dem ersten Preis der Kurzfilmfestivals "Filmzwerge" in Münster ausgezeichnet. (Zitat nach APA und Die Presse).

Gbrsp. sowie Resten von drei Klebefilmstreifen. - Berg, (1883 - 1956), versuchte sich bereits mit 15 Jahren als Komiker am Stadttheater in Leitmeritz; Engagements in Teplitz, Mährisch-Ostrau und Aussig folgten. Erste größere Erfolge hatte er gemeinsam mit Heinrich Eisenbach als Mitglied des Budapester Orpheum in Wien, dem er 17 Jahre lang angehörte. In der Folge trat er in diversen Kabaretts und Lokalen auf, wie dem Theater der Komiker im St. Annahof (Wien), an dessen Führung er sich eine Zeit lang beteiligte, und dem Ronacher. Am 2. Juli 1907 heiratete er die aus Vevey stammende Artistin Susanne Emilie Flückiger. Er spielte auch in einigen österreichischen Filmproduktionen mit, unter anderem in Charly, der Wunderaffe (1915, Regie: Joe May) und der Verfilmung des Hugo Bettauer-Romans Die Stadt ohne Juden. Berg flüchtete 1938 in die USA, wo er vom Verkauf von Papierwaren notdürftig lebte. Hin und wieder hatte er die Möglichkeit, Vorstellungen zu geben, wie im New Yorker Exilkabarett „Kabarett der Komiker". Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Wien 1949 war er unter anderem im Simpl engagiert und gab einige Gastspiele in Amsterdam und Zürich. Nachdem er keine weiteren Engagements hatte, zog er nochmals in die USA. Von 1954 bis zu seinem Tod lebte er wieder in Wien. Seine Grabstelle befindet sich auf dem Wiener Zentralfriedhof im neuen israelitischen Teil, Tor IV. Er wurde im Grab seiner 1918 verstorbenen Mutter beigesetzt. (Zitat) [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        [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. .

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.
