        Ash Wednesday

      Faber & Faber 1930 - This is number 359 of the limited 600-copy first printing, March, 1930, by The Curwen Press, of T. S. Eliot's post-conversion poem (28 numbered pages), "Ash Wednesday", published by The Fountain Press (New York) and Faber & Faber Ltd. (London) that same year. This first printing, and the later first trade edition, were dedicated "To My Wife", a dedication removed from later editions. This is a near fine copy, the only flaws being a minimal bump to the upper outside front cover (see photo), and a tanned column, running top to bottom, near the gutters, of the first and last pages - presumably a printing artifact. The only writings are Eliot's signature and the copy number. There are no stamps or other attachments. The binding is tight, with no loose or missing pages. There are no page tears or creases. The text is in uniformly fine condition, with no fade or other flaws. The cover, blue cloth background with gold lettering and decoration, are unfaded and clean. The spine is straight and securely attached. The accompanying photos are accurate reflections of the book conditions. International shipping would be by priority express insured mail, with a shipping charge of $60.00. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        POETRY ARCHIVE Of WINONA MONTGOMERY GILLILAND. Including Typescript Poems, Publications, and Two Photographs

      Mooresville, IN, et al.: (various), (various). Circa 1930 - 1950. Dark brown three-ring binder stamped "Supplements. The Seeforth Service"; teal cloth book in tan dj printed in black; wrappered magazines. Tears to binding holes of two typescript leaves; occasional minor soil or edgewear; occasional pencil notations and corrections; binder worn. Book lightly damp-stained to bottom edge of boards and some leaves, spotting/soil to endpapers and few leaves; in Poor dj (panels split and damp-stained, loss to spine and edges). Average general wear to magazines, with occasional chipped edges, faint staining, and rusted staples; wrappers of one quite foxed. Overall, Good to Very Good condition.. Binder: 64 leaves, most typescript to recto only, containing 57 poems. INDIANA POETS: 160 pp. Poetry magazines: various paginations. 2 b/w photographs laid in, both ~3-1/2" x 3-1/2". 4to binder (11-1/2" x 9-1/2"); 8vo book and magazines. The poetry archive of Winona Montgomery Gilliland, a minor Indiana poet who garnered some national and local acclaim primarily in the 1930s. The feature item of the archive is a binder of over 50 typescript poems with occasional pencil notations and corrections, in what we presume to be Gilliland's hand, accompanied by a typed (and incomplete) List of Publications. Given that several of the poems were typed on the blank verso of her husband's life insurance office stationery, it seems likely that these were Mrs. Gilland's personal collection, comprised of both published and apparently unpublished poems. Also included is a copy of Indiana Poets: An Anthology of 48 Living Writers (New York: Henry Harrison, 1935), in which Gilliland is one of the featured 48 writers; 20 issues of various poetry magazines (one duplicate), containing publications of her poetry; and two b/w photographs, one of which is identified as a portrait of the author. Mary Winona Gilliland lived in Indianapolis most of her life, graduating from Tudor Hall and then DePauw University before marrying Robert V. Gilliland in 1915. She was published in The American Mercury, Poetry, Kaleidograph, Indiana Poetry Magazine, Weird Tales, Bozart, Westward, Better Homes and Gardens, Wings, and the 1937 issue of American Women Poets, among other magazines, and was invited to join the Poetry Society of America in 1937. A unique collection of material documenting the literary achievements of a largely forgotten mid-20th century poet.

        Art Deco hand-painted French Fashion postcards

      1930 - A group of 10 hand-painted postcards depicting women's fashion in the 1930s. The artists include "Rucio", "Orcina' and "Susie". All are in the style of the pochoir fashion magazine "Le Gazette du Bon Ton". On the verso is the standard postcard information for France "Carte Postale. La Correspondance au recto n'est pas acceptee par tous les pays etrangers (Se renseigner a la poste)" with a split back, the address on the right and room for correspondence on the left. Two cards by "Susie" are charming - one woman is dressed in a blue sailor's suit, the duffle bag slung over her shoulder, with the notation "U.S.A.". In the other, the young woman is wearing a short pink and blue striped outfit, holding a nest of eggs, the suggestive caption saying "Nous aussi nous retrouverons bientot notre cher petit nid!" (We will also soon find our own little nest!) The outfits are charming. The postcards are unused, printed on heavy rag card with untrimmed edges. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Silver Wings

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1941 (c.1930). New York: Alfred A. Knopf. Very Good+ in Fair dj. 1941 (c.1930). Reprint. Hardcover. [a good solid clean copy, some light shelfwear and minor bumping at bottom corners; the jacket, unfortunately, is hideously scarred right in the middle of the front panel, with a curving surface-peeled area measuring a little more than 5 inches top-to-bottom and about 1-1/4 inches at its widest point (more or less in the shape of South Vietnam, if that helps to visualize it), plus another dime-size surface scar (probably from a removed price sticker) at upper right-hand corner, just catching the "R" in "SILVER"; there's some additional edgewear and a few small tears, but the big scar really trumps everything else -- honestly, it's enough to make you cry, especially considering the rarity of this particular jacket]. Very scarce collection of World War I aviation stories (all of which, with one exception, were first published in Boys' Life), by this hard-boiled writer, who at the time of its first issue in 1930 was on the threshold of breaking out of the pages of "Black Mask" and other pulps into the realm of hardcover fiction with "Green Ice." Whitfield was an associate (read: drinking buddy) of Dashiell Hammett, and although he was "of the school," his work never did much more than brush up against that of such masters as Hammett and Chandler, quality-wise. Still, his aviation stories, as E.R. Hagemann has noted, "have a verisimilitude about them not always found in the pulps," due to Whitfield's own experiences as a pilot in the war (although by William F. Nolan's account his actual combat exploits were very limited). At one point, he was touted by an enthusiastic pulp magazine editor as "America's foremost writer of aviation fight stories," which might have been both a tad hyperbolic and yet altogether true. (Who would the competition have been, exactly?) The jacket blurb makes this sound like a novel ("a fast-moving story which describes the war crossing of a group of pilots on a transport"), but in fact there are a dozen more-or-less self-contained stories, divided into three sections: Wings of War; Wings of the Mail; Wings of Transport. (One of the most interesting is "The Camera Shoot," dealing with the use of motion-picture cameras (mounted in place of guns) at an aerial combat training school in France.) By the way, the book also features very stylized endpaper illustrations, which I believe are identical to those in the first edition.[Another couple of words about the horrible jacket-scar: it seems to me, due to the patterned design of the jacket illustration, that some talented graphic artist-type (definitely not me!) could Photoshop this jacket and digitally "fill in" the missing parts, thus creating quite a presentable restoration/facsimile. Whether this could be in any way the basis for an actual restoration of the original jacket, I couldn't say.] .

Basis for the 1934 film serial The Red Rider directed by Lew Landers, and featuring Buck Jones, and with athletic great Jim Thorpe in a lesser role. The 1934 film probably had some effect on the comic book and radio hero created in 1933 as the Bronc Peeler, but whose name was changed in 1938 to Red Ryder (of "You'll shoot your eye out" fame). .

Accompanied by two handwritten letters from Kallas to Garnett, the first, dated 15 November 1929, asking for Garnett's permission to dedicate the English translation to him, the second, dated 28 February 1930, an anguished letter saying she had just received the first copies and Cape had not printed the dedication to Garnett in the book. A novel of lycanthropy unaccountably dropped from the 1978 Bleiler Checklist. Although herself a Finn, Kallas wrote mainly about her husband's country, Estonia. These two countries, together with Hungary, belong to the Finno- Ugric language group, a linguistic anomaly unrelated to the Indo-European family. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1767.

        Small Group of Original Illustrative Watercolor Artworks Signed By Phyllis Yglesias

      Small group of art consisting of four pieces, with some ancillary material, done in a style very reminiscent of the work of Arthur Rackham; no date but circa 1930 or so; including: 2 'border elements' one of small undersea plantlike- beings with faces and the other with stylized goldfish or koi, swimming around blossoming sea-plants, both in muted orange and blue-gray tones, approximately 1 1/2" x 6 1/2"; one pen & ink and colored piece entitled "An Inspection." (with written below) "Conscience inspecting the book (of sins)" signed in ink lower right approx. 5 1/2" x 8"; and another pen & ink and colored piece, approx. 6 3/4" x 7" of a pondering seated elf in a patterned yellow vest with many curious creatures and plants surrounding him, done in the same 'fantastic' style, signed lower right; all the pieces accomplished on watercolor paper which was then laid-down onto cardstock and apparently had been over-matted at some point, as the old glue residue from the over-covering is evident around the edges of the card; evidently, the piece was to be set up as a panel, since there are layout instructions with measurements and pattern on the backs of the artworks, and one with "Conscience Inspecting the Book of Sins" in ink, with the other a poetic stanza: A Man of the Wilderness said to me/"How many strawberries grow in the sea?"/I answered him as I thought good,/"As many red herrings as grow in the wood". - which is a direct quote from The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin story by Beatrix Potter and evidently an old folk proverb; also another name pencilled-on the back of Geo. Duncan Es(q) 14 Y(?) Pk; Phyllis (Pog) Yglesias (d. 1977) British watercolor and drawing artist, wood carver, toy maker, was active from 1912. She was the sister of Dorothy Yglesias and daughter of British painter Vincent Philip Yglesias (1845-1911). She was one of the artists from the 'Newlyn school' and those working in the Lamorna Valley. The sisters were great naturalists and bird lovers and founded the now-famous Mousehole Wild Bird Hospital and Sanctuary, a wildlife hospital based near Mousehole, Cornwall, UK. in 1928, which later became extremely important following the Torrey Canyon oil spill disaster, spearheading the rescue and rehabilitation efforts associated with the affects on the coastal birds and wildlife after the wreck of this tanker on the Cornish coast in 1967. Rather sadly and ironically, we include here a copy of the Dorothy Yglesias book on the story of the founding of the Sanctuary "The Cry of a Bird" written in 1962, 5 years before this marine disaster occurred. The book contains a line-drawing frontispiece by Phyllis Yglesias and is illustrated with black and white photographs of the sisters' life-work of bird rescue and is in very good condition in its jacket; the artwork in very good condition, one 'border' with a tiny hole, the rest very good, with the cardstock surrounds having the old glue residue on the edges.. Very Good.

        The Minutes of the Hexagon.

      30th. April to 1938 28th. October. Volume I all issued 1930 - Unpaginated, type-script, c.250 pages, rectos only. Half vellum and cloth, the spine lettered THE MINUTES OF THE HEXAGON. VOL. I, in very nice condition. *The volume begins with the list of members : RUSSELL BRAIN - HUGH CAIRNS - MACDONALD CRITCHLEY - DENNY-BROWN - GEORGE RIDDOCH - C. P. SYMONDS. The Minutes of the inaugural meeting records : 'A meeting to consider the formation of the club was held at the house of Dr. C. P. Symonds, 74 Wimpole Street, on April 30, 1930. There were present Drs. Symonds, Riddoch, Critchley, Brain, Denny-Brown and Mr. Cairns. After dinner and an unpremeditated and somewhat spirited but inconclusive discussion on the treatment of injuries of the spinal cord, the formation of the club was discussed. It was decided to hold three meetings a year - in February, June and October. The meetings were to be preceded by a dinner and were to take place on neutral ground. The arrangements for the next meeting were left in the hand of Dr. Riddoch.' There followed detailed notes on procedure. This volume contains the abstracts of 30 meetings, the first clinical meeting being presented by Denny-Brown, on 27th. June 1930 - Relationship of Cerebellar signs to Cerebellar Function; the final meeting for this volume was held on 28th. October 1938 and was presented by George Riddoch - Hypothalmic Autonomic Attacks. There is a point of confusion about the final meeting - the date in October 1938 is listed as such in the Index of Meetings, the note of that meeting is signed by Riddoch and dated for Oct.'38, but the meeting itself is dated for June 24th. 1938 and is so listed in Macdonald Critchley's account of the Hexagon in his essay collection - The Citadel of the Senses'. Many of these are signed by the presenters. The Index of Papers follows the Membership List and records that Symonds presented 8 papers - Riddoch presented 6 papers - Critchley presented 4 papers - Brain presented 6 papers - Denny-Brown presented 6 papers - and Cairns presented 3 papers. Thus 33 papers were given at the 30 meetings. The Minutes comprise Summary and Abstract of varying length. In addition there are a few letters bound in, either ALS [autograph letter signed] or TLS [typed letter signed], as follows : SIR HENRY HEAD to Hugh Cairns, Dec. 28, 1930, ALS - 'Your letter with its kind expressions of good will from all the members of the Hexagon have touched and pleased me more than I can tell you' ; OTTFRIED FOERSTER to Macdonald Critchley, 15.VII.32, ALS - 'I have your letter of June 27 and thank you most sincerely for your kind invitation .' ; HARVEY CUSHING to George Riddoch, July 22, 1933, TLS - 'Nothing could give me greater pleasure than to turn your famous club into a septagonal one some evening in November .' ; JEAN LHERMITTE to George Riddoch, 5 Octobre, 1934, TLS - 'Vous êtes très aimable de m'inviter si gentiment à l'occasion de mon prochain séjour à Londres .'; B. BROUWER to C. P. Symonds, Jan.6th. 1936, TLS - '. it will be a great honour for me to assist a dinner of the Hexagon Club.' These eminent neurologists were invited to attend at the meetings but did not give papers. A typed note copy from Critchley, loosely added, records that the next meeting would take place on June 30th. 1939, when Hugh Cairns '. will open a discussion on 'The cerebral circulation, with especial reference to raised intracranial pressure.' WWII began September 1st. 1939 - Critchley ends his account of the Club [Posthumous Papers of the Hexagon Club, pp.109-120, in Citadel of the Senses, Raven Press, 1986] - 'On 24 June 1938 Riddoch spoke on Hypothalamic Autonomic Attacks. He received a mixed and guarded reception, the club remained 'open-minded' on the subject. The minutes of the Hexagon end here, but apparently two more meetings were held. The war then came, and the Hexagon was a casualty. Half-hearted attempts to revive it were made in 1946, but Denny-Brown was then in Boston; Cairns had died; and George Riddoch was a very sick man.'

        Maps of English Counties.

      Oblong 4to. 25.5 by 36 cm. Album in original beige cloth, handwritten large title lable with pen and ink border decoration upper cover; with 29 manuscript maps, done in pen and ink and watercolours, title/contents page with floral ornamentation for borders; a little soiling to cover and label, otherwise near fine. This a charming and beautifully drawn manuscript atlas. There is one map for each English shire, plus London, with each map surrounded by many vignette illustrations highlighting points of interest and activities (industry, agriculture, cultural, sports) associated with the particular area. The number of these vignettes can vary, with London, which has the greatest number, featuring by our count 33, with pictures of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, St. Paul's, and other landmarks, of a Beafeater, a radio announcer, an equestrian, a bobby, zoo animals, paintings to mark galleries, a painter before a canvas to suggest Chelsea, and more. In some of the maps, there are additional tiny vignettes worked into the map, such as a fly fisherman or a golfer, over and above the many tiny cottage illustrations to mark villages, towns and cities in the particular county. London may have the greatest number of these vignettes, but the others are just as charming. For example, Hertfordshire has marching vegetables to signify market gardens, small planes for "aerodromes", rather precise representations of Haileybury & Imperial S. College, and so on. Minnie Whalley was a listed Cornwall artist, which is where she was originally from. She studied at the Gloucester School of Art and the Birmingham Central School of Arts and Crafts, and exhibited at the Clfton Arts Club, of which she was a member, the Dundee Society of Artists and the Royal West of England Academy, the oldest art gallery in Bristol, where she came to reside, and the St. Ives Art Gallery. Besides painting, Whalley worked in pewter and embroidery. She was included in the 1929 edition of "Who's Who in Art."
