        Archive of a Camoufleur

      np, 1930. Approximately 143 photographs, most mounted onto black paper- a few with captions - along with 15 other items of ephemera, including announcements for exhibitions, news articles, three items of correspondence and restricted army orders, all housed in four manila folders. A number of the photographs have fallen from their mounts, and the black paper the remainder are mounted onto is chipped and creased at extremities, but condition is otherwise generally very good. In a 1980 interview by Paul and Rita Kress which is hosted on the San Diego State University website, Ellison detailed his career as an artist. Ellison was born in Sioux City, Iowa, in 1909. He studied at the Chicago Academy of Fine Arts and the Chouinard Art School, and afterwards moved to California where he taught and exhibited in the seceding decades. During WWII Ellison was drafted, but was excused as he was overweight. He saw an ad for a meeting about becoming a Camofleur in Los Angeles. In 1944 Ellison went over to England to do camouflage work in the field, including camouflaging eight fields in southern England prior to D Day. Subsequently Ellison was sent back to London where he was an an instructor in the mines and booby traps school. After four weeks Ellison was sent to France and Belgium, where he worked to camouflage fields and worked on paintings in his spare time, which culminated in a 1945 exhibition at the La Jolla Fine Arts Gallery and the La Jolla Museum of Art. This collection consists of four folders, the bulk of which are taken up with photographs tipped onto blank album paper.  along with assorted ephemera from Ellison's career, including orders. Approximately half the photographs pertain to the camouflage work, including photographs of camouflage in the field and the designing and manufacturing of camouflage, aerial views, photographs of restricted camouflage test areas. The nature of camouflage is to elude recognition, making photography of them a paradoxical act. The photographs derive an odd and lasting power from the degree to which they deceive the viewer or not, or in the manner in which the facade of invisibility is constructed. The most confusing of the photographs are of a camouflage testing area, in which no camouflage seems apparent, even on close gaze, and the power resides in knowing the context -  that there is a camouflaged object within view.  To confuse the gaze further, some of the photographs are obviously model constructions, perhaps test dioramas which are eerily similar to doll houses. An interesting chapter of the longer story of fine artists working in the field of Camouflage beginning with WWI - a distinguished lineage which included the surrealist Roland Penrose and numerous Australian artists.

        Attractive inscribed photographic portrait on textured paper by Howard Coster.

      London: Howard Coster, [early 1930s] - Mounted, glazed and framed at Goodspeed's Book Shop (overall size 425 x 323 mm; image 295 x 205 mm). A few light scuffs to frame, slight oxidisation to areas of margin otherwise in excellent condition. Signed by Shaw at the top of the image and by Coster (in pencil) on the mount; additionally inscribed by Shaw on the mount: "To Mary Lawton, G. Bernard Shaw, 13/11/36". An excellent association: Shaw had known the American actress Mary Lawton since before the Great War: he directed her in the first Broadway production of his play The Philanderer (performed at the Little Theater in 1913-14). In February 1922 she was cast in Back to Methuselah. In the 1930s she collaborated with the great Polish pianist Ignacy Paderewski on The Paderewski Memoirs (London and New York 1938), to which Shaw contributed a glowing letter of praise ("written after reading the American edition. [and] intended for publication" Laurence B280): "Though you have deserted the stage for literature your impersonation of Paderewski in this book of his and yours must rank with your greatest achievements as an actress. It has every quality of a great autobiography. It actually sent me to the index of the four volumes of my musical criticisms of 50 years ago to see what I had said when Paderewski swooped on London and was immediately drawn as an archangel by Burne-Jones". Mary Lawton was also a friend of Mark Twain's daughter Clara Clemens. A fine portrait of Shaw, probably taken in the early 30s, by Howard Coster, one of the most renowned portrait photographers of the day who "photographed most of the leading figures in politics, literature and the arts. his work was frequently published in magazines" (National Portrait Gallery online). This portrait is used in reverse as the frontispiece to Dan H. Laurence's bibliography of Shaw. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Plays based on the stories of Beatrix Potter.

      London: Frederick Warne & Co.; Samuel French, 1930–62 - Together 11 items, octavo. Original buff, blue, or green wrappers. Housed together in a custom brown linen chemise and brown quarter morocco and cloth slipcase. Occasional minor soiling or creasing, some copies fine; overall, very good. WILLIAMS, E. Harcourt. The Tailor of Gloucester: A play from the story by Beatrix Potter. London: Frederick Warne & Co., [1930] & [c. 1933]. 3 works, octavo. Original buff wrappers, titles and vignette to covers in green. First edition: A fine copy. Later issues: wrappers a little creased, nicked and spotted. One copy of the first edition (no reference to Ginger & Pickles or Mr Samuel Whiskers), and two later issues (with the plays referenced). In October 1923 Potter received a rough draft of Williams's adaptation, requesting her permission to publish it and use the play for the children's performances he and his wife gave each Christmas. Potter made a couple of alterations, notably to the name Lady Golightly he wanted to give to one of the mice, and criticised some of the wording, and wrote severely to her publishers: "I care far more for the Tailor than for Peter. If they print a book of words I must be allowed to revise it." The play was published in 1930. Later, in response to Warne's request for a drawing room version, she replied "between ourselves the present version is so far mine (by quotation and corrections) that I could not write a different version if I tried." WILLIAMS, E. Harcourt. Ginger and Pickles: A play from the story by Beatrix Potter. London: Frederick Warne & Co., [1931] & [c. 1933]. 3 works, octavo.

        Taos Pueblo

      New York: New York Graphic Society. SIGNED LIMITED EDITION. Fine. SIGNED LIMITED EDITION of perhaps the greatest pictorial representation of the American West; one of only 950 copies signed and numbered by Ansel Adams; a facsimile of the extremely rare 1930 edition of 108 copies printed for Adams. Beautifully illustrated with 12 gravure reproductions of Adams's photographs. "With Taos Pueblo we see a commitment to light and form as the essential building blocks of a picture. Every exposure was made in the most brilliant sunshine which in turn created deep shadows. Sunlight and shadow are at the same time the photographer's friend and foe. Neither films nor papers can record the two extremes of bright sun and deep shadow equally well, and an unhappy tonal compromise is often the result. Rich shadow detail is here realized simultaneously with delicate highlights in a way that proves Adams's native sense for the toughest technical problems of the medium, and how to solve them" (Weston J. Naef, The Metropolitan Museum Art). Boston: New York Graphic Society, 1977. Large folio (approximately 13 x 17.5 inches), original half-leather over linen boards, marbled endpapers; original slipcase. A FINE COPY.

Although Verdi's publisher Ricordi had even urged him in the year before to write it, he declined to do so, and is now utterly satisfied that his correspondent wanted to write the German libretto: "[...] One obstacle, however, remains morally and legally [...]". - Somewhat browned and small damage to edges.

        Sammlung von teils eigenh. Notenhandschriften eigener und fremder Werke.

      Verschiedene Orte, ca. 1810-1930. - Zusammen 433 SS. eigene Werke bzw. Werkfragmente, Entwürfe u. dgl. und 1329 SS. Werke bzw. Werkfragmente, Entwürfe u. a. anderer Komponisten in Abschriften. Josef Schneider, geboren 1866 in Bad Reichenhall, kam 1888 als Schulleiter ins niederösterreichische Hautzendorf, wo er unterrichtete und die dortige Musikkapelle leitete. Sein kompositorisches Schaffen umfaßt zahlreiche Märsche, Mazurken, Gavotten und Walzer wie etwa "Der Lenz", "Im Mondenschein", "Maiglöckchen", "Mühlgang", "Kellergeister" und "Prinz Karneval" sowie Hymnen und sakrale Werke. Seinen Ruhestand verbrachte er in Wolkersdorf, wo er als Chormeister den Gesangsverein Wolkersdorf und als Dirigent das Hausorchester leitete und sich besonders mit dem Singspiel auseinandersetzte. So vertonte er etwa Ludwig Anzengrubers "G'wissenswurm" und zahlreiche andere Texte. Der Stadtgemeinde Wolkersdorf ist der Hinweis auf einige weitere Details aus seinem Leben zu danken, etwa auf das heute in und um Wolkersdorf noch bekannte Weihnachtsspiel "Christkindlein kommt" mit Text von Ernestine Berger und auf das Weihelied "Zu Euch Ihr Brüder", das Schneider anläßlich der Enthüllung des Kriegerdenkmals 1923 gleichfalls zu einem Text von Ernestine Berger, der Tochter des langjährigen Bürgermeisters Josef Berger, schuf. - Nach seinem Tode im Jahr 1940 geriet sein Werk kriegsbedingt in Vergessenheit, der hier vorliegende Bestand gestattet somit zumindest eine Übersicht über sein eigenes Schaffen wie über die Musik, mit der er sich im Rahmen seiner Tätigkeit als Kapellmeister und Musiker beschäftigte. Einige seiner Werke wurden von Josef Pleil für das Bläserquintett "Brass for Fun" arrangiert und seither regelmäßig aufgeführt. Die Stadtgemeinde Wolkersdorf benannte ihm zum Gedenken 1976 die verlängerte Krexnerstraße nach ihm. - Detaillierte Verlistung auf Anfrage.

        A Map of Berkeley, Oakland, & Alameda. Pictorial envelope title:This is a Section of the Map of Alameda County showing Some of the Early Histories of Oakland, Berkeley, Alameda and Environs with Special References to the Flora & Fauna of this most colorfu

      The Sather Gate Book Shop. Berkeley, CA. No date. Ca. 1930? - Color pictographic / pictorial map poster, 34 1/2 by 42 3/4 inches folding, professionally mounted on linen. Infill painting of little loss at fold intersections, infill of pinhole at each corner, only visible on the closest of inspections. Bright and clean. Together with the COLOR PICTORIAL ENVELOPE into which the poster was originally folded (tears and little paper loss to edges). Fabulous Art Deco style map by Michael Baltekal Goodman, notable for its brilliant color and striking design. The minimalist design of the street layout at the centre of the map is in stark contrast to the blue pattern of the sea at lower left and the rich greens, reds and oranges of the inland area at upper right. The names of several of the main streets are featured in scrolls, also historical events and important places such as Oakland Municipal Airport. Many buildings are featured in elevations; meanwhile vessels, ancient and contemporary, sail the harbour. Wind cherubs at the corners hark back to ancient maps as does the mythical sea creature at lower right. In the elaborate border are vignette images of historial events. The map was produced in collaboration with Eugene (Eugen) Neuhaus, the California painter and teacher. At the centre of the upper border a quotation proclaims the glory of San Francisco in the westward push of the nation: the best is last; it seems likely that the artist mapmaker had the intention of making this map of San Francisco the most glorious in scale and color of the several maps of American cities that had been published in the late 1920s under the influence of MacDonald Gill's Wonderground map.

Nicoll lived for 18 years in Egypt and made an unrivalled collection of Egyptian birds, now in the Museum of the Giz Zoological Gardens. He intended to issue a work that was to replace Shelley's 'A Handbook to the Birds of Egypt', 1872, which was no longer up to date. The author was approached by Nicoll's widow in 1926, who asked him to complete the work which was then about two thirds completed. The project was sponsored by the Egyptian government and published under their authority. The result is an invaluable and important reference source on this subject. Frontis.portrait, 6 fine plates from photogravures, 31 fine color plates from paintings by G. E. Lodge, Roland Green, H. Gronvold, Thorburn. 3 folding color maps, many text illus, tables, bibliog, appendices of bird lists. 700pp.
