        A collection of 18 personal New Year greetings etchings and drypoints by Troy Kinney 1916-1937

      1930 - A grouping of etchings and drypoints of various dancers created by Troy, and used by Troy and his wife Margaret as New Year greetings. The earliest, 1916, depicts a pre-Revolutionary couple in a minuet style dance. Through the years the portrayals included ballerinas, mythical satyrs, classical and whimsical risqué ballerinas, Russian dancers and exotic dancers. For a number of years, following the move to Connecticut, a whimsical ballerina was portrayed doing various household chores from chopping wood to stoking a fire. Several signed in pencil. Some with brief New Year greetings. The only indication as to the recipients is a "Dear Anna & Nat" at the base of one card. Each measures approx 5 ½" x 4 ½". Some mounted or with mats. Troy Kinney ((Kansas City, 1871 - Falls Village, Connecticut, 1938) was most notable for his works portraying dance performers, fanciful subjects, and classically styled nudes. He worked with dance performers, including Ruth St. Denis, Anna Pavlova, and Sophie Pflanz among others. He co-authored with his wife the books "Social Dancing of Today" and "The Dance: Its Place in Art and Life", for which he traveled throughout the world to study various dance styles. It remains to this day one of the most comprehensive works on the subject. Kinney's original drypoints and etchings are now included in the collections of the Library of Congress, Washington, DC., the Chicago Art Institute, the Cleveland Museum and the New York Public Library.

        Street Haunting

      San Francisco: The Westgate Press, 1930 Limited edition of 500 copies. Signed by Woolf on the limitation page in her signature purple ink. Bound in the publisher's crushed blue Morocco over gray paper-covered boards stamped in a blue and yellow lattice pattern, spine lettered in gilt. Very good, with some wear and rubbing to the extremities, light toning to the spine and board edges, small light stain to top corner of the endpapers, bookseller's plate to the rear pastedown, bright and fresh interior. A pleasing copy, signed by the author. Street Haunting is an essay in which Virginia Woolf discusses one of her favorite pastimes: walking around the streets of London. Woolf, who often walked around London to find inspiration and to cheer herself up during bouts of depression, writes, "That is true: escape is the greatest of pleasures; street haunting in the winter is the greatest of adventures." The text begins with the author devising a reason to venture out into London, which, in this case, is to find a pencil. However, like many of her works, Street Haunting's beauty stems from Woolf's eloquent descriptions of everyday human interactions, locations, and emotions; the essay is less about finding a pencil than Woolf's narrative about one of her favorite activities.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.
