        [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.

        Moby Dick or The Whale

      Chicago: The Lakeside Press,, 1930. 3 volumes, quarto. Recent black morocco, titles and pictorial blocks to the spines and front boards in silver copied from the original, black and white patterned paper, silver edges. Illustrated throughout by Rockwell Kent. Fine. First Rockwell Kent edition, limited to 1,000 sets, signed by the author on the limitation page at the end of volume 3 . It is considered to be one of the finest editions of Melville's masterpiece and one of the great American illustrated books of the 20th century. In 1926 Rockwell Kent (1882–1971), then just beginning to establish his fame as an artist, was approached by R. R. Donnelley and Sons to illustrate a new edition of Richard Henry Dana's Two Years Before the Mast. Kent demurred, suggesting Moby Dick instead. Kent was given complete freedom to design and illustrate the three-volume set. The resulting work has been hailed as a masterpiece of 20th-century book illustration and credited with reviving public interest in a sublime but difficult novel.

        History of the Peloponnesian War

      Ashendene Press, Chelsea 1930 - Folio. full cream vellum, spine with seven raised bands, lettered in gilt. With Philip C. Duschnes bookseller label on rear pastedown. The History of the Peloponnesian War (Greek: ) is a historical account of the Peloponnesian War (431Ð404 BC), which was fought between the Peloponnesian League (led by Sparta) and the Delian League (led by Athens). It was written by Thucydides, an Athenian historian who also happened to serve as an Athenian general during the war. His account of the conflict is widely considered to be a classic and regarded as one of the earliest scholarly works of history. The History is divided into eight books.Analyses of the History generally occur in one of two camps. On the one hand, some scholars view the work as an objective and scientific piece of history. The judgment of J. B. Bury reflects his traditional interpretation of the work: "[The History is] severe in its detachment, written from a purely intellectual point of view, unencumbered with platitudes and moral judgments, cold and critical." ]On the other hand, in keeping with more recent interpretations that are associated with reader-response criticism, the History can be read as a piece of literature rather than an objective record of the historical events. This view is embodied in the words of W. R. Connor, who describes Thucydides as "an artist who responds to, selects and skillfully arranges his material, and develops its symbolic and emotional potential."Benjamin Jowett (1817-1893) was born in Peckham, Kent, and grew up in Camberwell, the third of nine children. His father was a furrier originally from a Yorkshire family that, for three generations, had been supporters of the Evangelical movement in the Church of England; and an author of a metrical translation of the Old Testament Psalms. His mother was a Langhorne, related to John Langhorne, the poet and translator of Plutarch. At twelve, Jowett was placed on the foundation of St Paul's School (then in St Paul's Churchyard) where he soon gained a reputation as a precocious classical scholar. Aged eighteen he was awarded an open scholarship to Balliol College, Oxford, where he remained for the rest of his life. He went up in 1836, and was quickly recognized as one of the leading Oxford Dons of his generation, made a Fellow while still an undergraduate in 1838; he graduated with first-class honours in 1839. He was renowned as an influential tutor and administrative reformer in the University of Oxford, and as a translator of Plato and Thucydides -wikipedia.

        PHOTOGRAPH ALBUM DEPICTING NATIVE AND AMERICAN MILITARY LIFE IN THE PHILIPPINES DURING THE 1920s AND 1930s].

      Philippines. [ca. 1920s-1930s]. - Eighty-eight photographs of varying sizes, most approximately 3 x 5 inches. Black faux leather album, tied with cord. Photos in white corner mounts on black construction paper. With original tissue guards, of which the first three are detached and chipped. A few images slightly faded or with light soiling, but mostly clear and well developed. Very good. An outstanding album of eighty-eight photographs portraying native country life and showing scenes from the U.S. Army's Nichols Field outside of Manila during the 1920s and 1930s. The images of native Filipinos consist principally of individual and group portraits of men and women in traditional dress. There are a number of additional images showing agricultural activity, rural farm land, and animals. The second significant portion of the album contains images of Nichols Field, the American military base built near Manila in 1919. These photos depict indigenous people and American personnel in and around the airfield, along with several representations of military buildings, living quarters, army activity, airplanes, and other army matériel. A few other images of port activity and a photograph that captures an eruption of the Mayon volcano are also included. Well shot and well developed, the photographs in this album create a striking portrait of two vastly different modes of living during this period in Philippine history.

        PROPAGANDA OF NURSERIES IN KOLKHOZ] Pochemu neobkhodimy iasli v kolkhozakh [i.e. Why the Nursery in Kolkhoz is Necessary]

      Gosmedizdat, Moscow 1930 - 8 pp. 17x13 cm. In original illustrated wrappers. Near fine. Very rare. This tiny brochure from the series 'The Health of Kolkhoznik' is dedicated to the explanation of the purpose of nurseries and why they are good for the parents. The collectivization of its agricultural sector in USSR started in 1928, so this brochure was supposed to reach newly made kolkhoz and sovkhoz. The most interesting thing is that the book explains basic simple things, e.g. children of different ages need different care, and in the nursery there are medical personnel and educators who understand this and can provide needed care. It is also interesting to note unusual practices specific for kolkhoz: children were examined after arrival, changed into clean clothes, and personal clothes were put into a bag. Another goal of this edition was to educate the mother - nursery was a sort of a school for young mother where she could learn while watching personnel how to properly handle children in terms of hygiene especially. In fact nurseries reduce the mortality of children. In the end, it is noted that a nursery is a way to relieve a peasant woman from hardships and superstitions and that she builds a bright future along with men. In USSR nurseries and kindergartens were being built since its first days as the young state needed millions of workers. Maternity leave lasted for two months after the baby was born. Mothers had to get back to work, there were no excuses. Worldcat locates no copies. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      Cairo: Shell Company and the Royal Automobile Club of Egypt, 1930 - Octavo. Original card wrappers printed in red and black. A little rubbed and soiled on the wrappers, light marginal toning, overall very good. First edition of this extremely uncommon early moto-tourist handbook for Egypt, with no copies traced in libraries. Tours are listed with Cairo and Alexandria as starting points, beginning with 50-mile round trips, such as Cairo to the pyramids at Saqqara, and extending to considerably longer journeys, including Cairo to Luxor and Alexandria to the isolated Siwa Oasis, testament to a time when Egypt was perhaps more easily navigable than it is today. Routes are meticulously described and the notes pages are filled with detailed itineraries in manuscript, not limited to Egypt but also including routes to Jerusalem and Petra.

        [PROPAGANDA OF NURSERIES IN KOLKHOZ] Pochemu neobkhodimy iasli v kolkhozakh [i.e. Why the Nursery in Kolkhoz is Necessary]

      Moscow: Gosmedizdat, 1930. 8 pp. 17x13 cm. In original illustrated wrappers. Near fine. Very rare. This tiny brochure from the series 'The Health of Kolkhoznik' is dedicated to the explanation of the purpose of nurseries and why they are good for the parents. The collectivization of its agricultural sector in USSR started in 1928, so this brochure was supposed to reach newly made kolkhoz and sovkhoz. The most interesting thing is that the book explains basic simple things, e.g. children of different ages need different care, and in the nursery there are medical personnel and educators who understand this and can provide needed care. It is also interesting to note unusual practices specific for kolkhoz: children were examined after arrival, changed into clean clothes, and personal clothes were put into a bag. Another goal of this edition was to educate the mother - nursery was a sort of a school for young mother where she could learn while watching personnel how to properly handle children in terms of hygiene especially. In fact nurseries reduce the mortality of children. In the end, it is noted that a nursery is a way to relieve a peasant woman from hardships and superstitions and that she builds a bright future along with men. In USSR nurseries and kindergartens were being built since its first days as the young state needed millions of workers. Maternity leave lasted for two months after the baby was born. Mothers had to get back to work, there were no excuses. Worldcat locates no copies.

        ALBUM NO 1. Collection 'Décors et Couleurs'

      Paris: Éditions Albert Lévy, circa 1930. A rare and astonishing collection of abstract designs by the French cubist, Georges Valmier (1885-1937) - here prepared as a group of twenty stencil prints by master pochoir printmaker, Jean Saudé. The portfolio was prepared as an inspiration for decorators, blending the raw creative talent of Valmier's modernism with innovative interior design. Valmier first exhibited in 1913, but had worked on experimental cubist painting for some years previously in isolation from Braque and Picasso. He was later represented by the influential art dealer Léonce Rosenberg and acquired a great following. Unlike other modern artists experimenting with cubism, Valmier did not seek to develop his technique by continually reducing natural and human forms. Rather, he looked inwards and applied cubist design to his metaphysical world. In particular, Valmier was intrigued by the aesthetic representation of the invisible, and of intangible moods within himself, claiming that 'the invisible is the opposite of nothing, since it is the essence and spirit of life itself.' Most of the designs in Valmier's album are entirely abstract cubist refractions of mood and spirit. The prints remain vibrant and invigorated by his hedonistic (and sometimes riotous) use of colour. Twenty brightly-coloured pochoir prints measuring 445 mm x 343 mm., with printed titling leaf, the collection beautifully preserved in contemporary folding case with cloth ties.

        THE WORKS OF ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE The Crowborough Edition

      New York: Doubleday,Doran, 1930. Doyle, Arthur Conan. THE WORKS OF SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE. Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Doran, 1930. 23 (of 24) Volumes. An unusually fresh NEAR FINE set of Doyle's Crowborough Edition, the only complete collection of Doyle's works published in the author's lifetime, one of only 760 sets issued, and SIGNED by Doyle in Volume 1. Volume I with frontispiece portrait. Original publisher's linen-backed oatmeal-colored boards (a few volumes lightly foxed), printed spine labels, top edges gilt. TWENTY OF THE VOLUMES RETAIN THEIR ORIGINAL DUST JACKETS (DJs mostly in splendid, complete, untouched condition, only one chipped). An unusually fresh set, most volumes likely unread. There is very little wear amongst the three volumes that lack jackets. The missing Volume (number 17) is unfortunate (especially for us as this set otherwise would be valued at more than $10,000). As of this writing, we've been unable to locate a replacement and consequently have priced this item at a third of the set's value. Needless to say, we are on the lookout daily for Volume 17 but you have the opportunity until then to acquire this set at a rock bottom price. It always seems surprising that Doyle's full writings were never collected during his life and lucky indeed that this signed set managed to be arranged and printed less than a year before the author passed away. This set is rarely encountered today in commerce and those few that can be found generally are rebound or lack the dust jackets. A prize for the Doyle/Sherlock collector.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Early 20th Century Photo Album Depicting Mostly Connecticut Bridges in Their Various States of Construction

      Original cloth. Very Good +. Very impressive early 20th century album (possibly 1930-31) of over 100 original mounted photographs depicting local bridges in various states of construction. Most of the black-and-white photographs are 3 1/2"x5 1/2". The album, an oblong octavo, is string-tied in its olive-green cloth. Most of the photos appear to focus on Connecticut bridges and the album was probably compiled by H.C. Orr, the Resident Engineer of Cornwall Bridge, CT. (A tipped-in May 1930 letter to him from the Commissioner of the CT Highway Department strongly suggests so). Also includes interesting ephemera discussing some of the most prominent bridge buiders of the day and some of the earliest covered bridges built in CT, such as the Lewis Bridge and the Hart Bridge (now known as the Cornwall and West Cornwall Bridges respectively). Also discusses the much-loved covered bridge in Kent, built in 1858 over the Housatonic River, and covered bridges in Ansonia (also spanning the Housatonic) and Seymour.
