        [Manuscript Fair Copy, Signed, of "Curfew Must Not Ring To-night," with Related Letter]

      San Diego, CA, 1930. Six pages, in ink, on rectos of six quarto lettersheets. Mailing folds, a few tiny nicks and light soiling; very good. The complete text, signed and dated at the conclusion, of Thorpe's famous narrative poem, the opening stanza of which reads: "England's sun was slowly setting o'er the hill-tops far away, [/] Filling all the land with beauty at the close of one sad day; [/] And its last rays kissed the forehead of a man and maiden fair, -- [/] He with steps so slow and weary; she with sunny floating hair [/] He with bowed head, sad and thoughtful; she [with] lips so cold and white, [/] Struggled to keep back the murmur, [/] 'Curfew must not ring tonight' ...." Accompanied by a typed letter, signed, from Thorpe, to Rev. Cornelius Greenway of Brooklyn, NY., one page, small quarto, 3357 Fourth St., San Diego, CA, 10 September 1930, with the original mailing envelopes for both. In her letter, Thorpe writes: "If the poem you desire an autograph copy of was a short one I would gladly comply ... In 1886 Edward W. Bok, editor ... sent me a request for an autograph copy of my famous curfew poem with an accompanying check of ten dollars ... I accordingly placed a price of five dollars a copy for this wearisome task which consumed so much of my time and strength necessarily needed for my literary work which was my only means of support. From that time I have received the above remuneration for this service (the only remuneration for the curfew poem, which, in the first place, I gave to the public) ...." Thorpe (1850 - 1939) wrote her most famous poem when she was a teenager, and she neglected to copyright the text. It was widely anthologized and translated, and became a favorite 19th century declamation piece. It was first printed in newspaper form in 1870, then for the first time was collected in book form in 1874, in Baker's THE READING CLUB AND HANDY SPEAKER, and then, in 1883, as a book bearing the poem's title. Wilson, THIRTEEN AUTHOR COLLECTIONS ... AND FIVE CENTURIES OF FAMILIAR QUOTATIONS, Volume I, p. 437.

        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).

      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.

        A Coast Pomo Girl

      Suffolk Engraving Company, Boston 1930 - Photogravure after Edward Curtis, printed by the Suffolk Engraving Company, wove paper (watermarked 'Van Gelder Zonen Made in Holland'). Excellent condition. A breath-taking image from "The North American Indian", the grandest illustrated work ever produced in the United States, the most important illustrated work on Native Americans, and the single greatest book in Western Americana. Only the double-elephant folio edition of Audubon's "Birds of America" surpasses Curtis in its massive ambition and beauty of execution. ".Because of the singular combination of qualities with which he has been blessed, and because of his extraordinary success in making and using his opportunities. (Curtis) has been able to do what no other man has ever done; what, as far as we can see, no other man could do. He is an artist who works out of doors and not in a closet. He is a close observer, whose qualities of mind and body fit him to make his observations out in the field, surrounded by the wild life he commemorates. He has lived on intimate terms with many different tribes of the mountains and the plains. He knows them as they hunt, as they travel, as they go about their various avocations on the march and in camp. He knows their medicine men and their sorcerers, their chiefs and warriors, their young men and maidens. He has not only seen their vigorous outward existence, but has caught glimpses, such as few white men ever catch, into that strange spiritual and mental life of theirs; from whose inner most recesses all white men are forever barred." (Theodore Roosevelt, Foreword to Volume I) Renowned for their unrivalled basketry skills, the Pomo tribe inhabited Northern California. Edward Curtis was fascinated by the story of the Native Americans from childhood. His in-depth knowledge of the various tribes increased in parallel with his skill as a photographer during his participation in a number of scientific expeditions in the 1890s. In 1896, Curtis began to take photographs of the Native American tribes (by 1930 he had taken over 40,000 negatives of eighty tribes) and evolve his hugely ambitious plan for a comprehensive work which would illustrate his romantic vision of Native American life before the disastrous impact of European contact. With the enthusiastic support of President Theodore Roosevelt (who wrote the foreword to the present work) and the financial backing of J. Pierpont Morgan (Curtis was introduced to him by Roosevelt), the publishing project finally got under way in 1906. Pierpont Morgan died in 1913 just before the completion of the ninth volume, but his son agreed to continue underwriting the project; between them, they eventually contributed about a third of the $1,500,000 cost. What had originally been projected to take five or six years eventually stretched to twenty-three, finally reaching a conclusion in 1930 but leaving Curtis a broken and bankrupt man. Nonetheless, his grand design was completed, and his work remains as his monument. Cf. Naef & Goldschmidt The Truthful Lens 40; cf. Howes C-965.

        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.
