        Foochow UHS". Union High School teacher's photograph album; the Methodist Episcopal Church in China, 1930.

      1930 - The Missionary Society of the Methodist Episcopal Church sent its first missionaries to Foochow (Fuzchou), China, in 1846. Foochow was an important provincial capital of Fujian province. This album is a record of some of the missionary teachers at the schools in 'Foochow' in the 1930s, during the Chinese Civil War.This home made photographic album consists of 7 b&w real photographs laid down, in a folding captioned album, with stiff red boards, the front board with handwritten title "Foochow UHS" and the rear, in Chinese characters. The photographs include: "Hillside Looking SW across Lotus Lake to River Min"; The House by the Side of the Road, SE corner where dispensary is"; "'We' in south yard, hillside"; Taken August 1930, G. M. N. "Jimmie and I, Jean and "Jade Eyes"; "Living and Dining Room, Camera looking East"; "George in his Study"; and "Hillside Taken from Hill back of School looking north toward hills where fighting occurred". The last names of the subjects are not noted; the one photograph of Westerners shows a white man with tennis racket, his seated wife, and a standing young woman holding a cat, in which the man is noted as "Jimmie". "Jimmie" is possibly James Edward Skinner, who moved from Kucheng to Yenping, on the Min River in the Fukien Province. Skinner built the Alden Speare Memorial Hospital, and became superintendent of the hospital, educating Chinese doctors. During this period of the Chinese civil war, Mao Zedong's army was struggling with the Communist army for control of the area. The fighting mentioned in the caption of the photograph of the school most likely refers to this. In 1933, Yenping fell to the Communists and the Skinners escaped to Haitan Island.Album measures 8 x 7" folded. Very good condition. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Civilization and its Discontents.

      London: by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at the the Hogarth Press and [by] The Institute of Psycho-Analysis,, 1930. Authorized translation by Joan Riviere. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. Photographic portrait frontispiece. Laid-in manuscript note explaining provenance. Light foxing to edges, endleaves, and very occasionally to margins, light toning, very short nick to fore edge of earlier leaves. A very good copy. First edition in English, first impression. Inscribed by Alec Guinness "For My dear Tony, with gratitude and most sincere admiration, and may we do lots more together. Alec, Hamlet 1938" on the front free endpaper. The recipient was Tyrone Guthrie, who directed Guinness as Hamlet in his " famous—some would say notorious—modern-dress production at the Old Vic in 1938" (ODNB). For Guinness it was the culmination of a string of classic roles through which he established his reputation. He later damned his own performance as "'pale, ersatz Gielgudry', yet James Agate, while not immediately at home with Guinness's distaste for heroic struttings and bellowings, considered his playing of the last scene the finest he had ever seen" (Telegraph obituary). Civilization and its Discontents was originally published in Vienna in the previous year as Das Unbehagen in der Kultur.

One of 380 numbered copies on handmade paper, signed by the author, "and containing two specially designed and hitherto unpublished alphabets by the Author". Born in 1864, William Graily Hewitt was educated at Westminster School and Trinity College, Cambridge. He was called to the bar in 1889 but interrupted his legal career by writing a novel and a volume of short stories. In 1899 he attended Edward Johnston's evening classes at the Central School of Arts and Crafts and was rapidly brought in to teach there, and at Camberwell School of Art, when Johnston gave up due to pressure of work (1901). Graily Hewitt taught at the Central School until c.1930. He published in tandem with Johnston in the early years of the century and collaborated with other scribes and illuminators throughout his life. Graily Hewitt and Ida Henstock worked together on the Book of Subscribers to the Bodleian Appeal (1949) and Graily Hewitt collaborated with many private presses as a decorator. His many publications on handwriting and type design appeared from 1915 to 1943, his work is in the Victoria and Albert Museum's collection and he was one of the original members of the book and printing circle, the Double Crown Club.

        The Greenwood Hat. Being a Memoir of James Anon 1885-1887.

      8vo., original full green leather lettered in gilt on spine and upper board. With 10 illustrations. Spine and edges a little sunned, lower board and spine with a little staining otherwise a very good copy. First edition, limited edition of 50 copies privately printed for Barrie to give to his friends. This copy inscribed by Barrie to Sir Edward Grey of Fallodon. Barrie and Grey were close friends and it was Barrie who threw the lavish party for Grey's 70th birthday. Guests included Winston Churchill, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Neville Chamberlain, Augustus Birrell, the American and French Ambassadors and John Buchan. The Greenwood Hat is a collection of reworked autobiographical articles that Barrie wrote when he first moved to London. Subjects range from women's cricket to Arthur Conan Doyle to Shakespeare to ghosts in London Clubs. The final illustration is a folded facsimile of a page of a letter written to Barrie by Captain Scott which was found in Scott's tent after his death. Scott wrote various ?last letters? including those to his widow Kathleen Scott, Mrs Oriana Wilson, Mrs Emily Bowers, Sir Reginald Smith and George Egerton. Barrie was Godfather to Scott's son and when he received Scott?s note three years later, he not only obeyed Scott?s wishes to look after the boy, but also he carried the letter with him everywhere as his most prized possession. He even read aloud from it during his inaugural address as Rector of St Andrews University: an address entitled simply ?Courage?. In his final letter to Barrie, Scott referred to a disagreement between the two men ?It hurt me grievously when you partially withdrew your friendship or seemed so to do?. It is unclear exactly what this was about, yet Scott maintained that ?My attitude towards you and everyone connected with you was always one of respect and admiration - under these circumstances I want you to think well of me and my end and more practically I want you to help my widow and my boy, your godson - we are showing that Englishmen can still die with a bold spirit fighting it out to the end.?

      London, 18. Januar 1930. - 1½ SS. Kl.-4to. An einen Mr. Lambert: „I find it necessary to centralise all my theatrical and publishing interests under one roof, and this new arrangement necessitates the conclusion of my very pleasant business relationship with Mr. M. Barry O’Brien, for whom – I would like to place on record – I have the highest personal regard. Mrs. Wallace, who has been in control of the Wyndham’s Theatre production of ‚The Calendar’ will in future have the financial and managerial control of the tours, the plays being presented by myself. I hope that the good relationships which have existed between your management and myself at third hand may continue now that I am taking a more intimate interest in the shows which are being sent out from London, and which in future will be cast and produced under my supervision [.]". – Auf Briefpapier mit gepr. Adresse.
