        ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH OF AUTHOR ZANE GREY And His Brother Romer Grey on a Bear Hunting Trip

      circa 1930 - A fine original photograph of Zane and Romer Grey displaying the results of a bear hunt together. The Photograph is SIGNED BY ZANE GREY, but the ink has faded and only the impression remains viewable in angled light. Black and white photograph, approximately 8 by 6.5 inches, mounted in textured buff board with beveled edge and handsomely framed in wood and glazed. The photograph itself is in beautiful condition with no fading or chipping, the contrast is excellent and the image is defined and clear, frame and mounting are very fine, the signature however is faded to near invisibility. A very handsome original photograph of brothers Zane and Romer Grey. In hunting attire the two men are standing in a forested area with two black bears from their hunting trip. One of the bears is on the ground, the other suspended from a tree. Though an accomplished writer on many subjects Zane Grey is probably best remembered for his novels of the American West. He was a highly outspoken and influential conservationist. His main motivation behind the writing of his western novels was to spark interest in America’s great wilderness areas and National Parks, and thus he hoped to encourage others to preserve them. The period of his writing coincides with when many of the great National Parks we now take for granted were only coming into being. Without the influence of men like Grey one wonders how much lesser our modern America might have been. Romer Grey was known to frequently accompany Zane on his excursions out west and on his fishing excursions around the world. While also being a published author of books on game fishing and hunting, Romer was primarily a noted photographer. A fact which may explain the excellent quality and composition of this picture.

        Africa's Last Empire:

      London: H. F. & G. Witherby,, 1930. Through Abyssinia to Lake Tana and the Country of the Falasha. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles and vignette of lion to spine in gilt, double rule to front board in blind, bottom edge untrimmed. With the dust jacket. Photographic frontispiece with tissue guard, 42 similar plates, folding map. Spine gently sunned, faint marks to boards but an excellent, notably tight copy with the cloth bright and fresh, in slightly rubbed yet rather handsome dust jacket with tape-repair to inside of rear panel. First edition, first impression. Publisher's file copy, with their bookplate to front pastedown. Hermann Norden was born in Emden, Germany in 1870 and migrated to the USA at the age of sixteen to work with his uncle, who was a cotton trader in New York City (Schröder, www.ostfriesischelandschaft.de, online). By 1911, he had amassed such a fortune that he was able to embark on an astounding series of voyages; the lands he explored may well have been known to the West - indeed, were European colonies - but how many could claim to have been to both the Belgian Congo and Phnom Penh? Several books, all published between 1923 and his death in London eight years later, stand as the record of an intrepid career in which Norden always sailed out alone and relied solely on local guides he would encounter at his destination. By 1922. he was already held in sufficient esteem in academic circles to be elected as a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. In a 1927 photograph he is seen standing next to Albert Einstein, Max Planck and other members of the Royal Prussian Academy of Sciences. The present work is an account of Norden's sojourn with the Falasha, Ethiopia's small Jewish population who still today live mainly around Lake Tana in the north of the country, claiming descent from King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba through their son Menilek I. A richly informative account of an obscure but fascinating people, highly uncommon in this condition with the dust jacket.

        A HAIR DIVIDES

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, [1930]., 1930. First edition. Signed by the author. Fine, bright, tight copy in a fine dust jacket. This is the story of a friendship between two unusual men. Its tragic culmination provides not only a study in fear but a mystery in terms of motives, which elevates the book to a lofty level rarely attained by most stories. The first part of the book is set in 1910, and the second part in 1930, and the story bridges the most critical epoch in the history of England. The author presents not only two different time periods, but two different worlds, where episode after episode reveals the dramatic transition from the solidity of 1910 to the chaotic possibilities of 1930. An exceptional copy.

        [Photo Album]: CCC Camp and Various Life Photographs

      Pittsfield, Massachusetts. 1930-1946. Oblong quarto. String-tied album lacking the boards measuring 8" x 11" containing over 400 captioned black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 1"x 1" and 9.25" x 7.25". Good only with chips, tears, and lacking the boards. A collection of photographs of a young New England man, captioned as Joseph Guarnieri, as he goes through the Great Depression and into the 1940s.The son of an Italian immigrant, Joseph documents the decades of the 1930s and 40s in a series of photographs seemingly displayed in no particular order. Here his life in New England can be seen through jobs he took on like that of a postal telegraph carrier, seen here in a group photo and riding his bike down a city street, a photograph captioned "barber school" from 1936, one of himself and a young woman captioned, "lifeguard and new acquisition," as well as family shots and vacation photos. Scattered throughout the album are numerous images of the time he spent in a Civilian Conservation Corps Camp in Becket, Massachusetts possibly working with a crew constructing roads. Considered the most popular of the New Deal programs, the corps was available to unmarried men ages 18-25 who were members of relief families. As members of the C.C.C. they earned a $30 a month wage, $25 of which was to be sent home, and were provided with housing, food, and clothing. Joseph took pictures of the camp itself with one blurry image captioned "the wash room," as well as his other compatriots posing on hills, in gravel pits, and in front of cars with "CCC Life" written under them. One photo of a tough looking man is captioned "fighter 1934 CCC Camp." One section labeled "Old CCC" shows a picture of two men smiling outside of a tent captioned, "when CCC Camp was in tents."Although he never went into the service, friends of Guarnieri did and their pictures are pasted among the rest of the assortment. Towards the end of the album are drawings, cards, and letters sent to Joe. In one letter from an A.H. Balorch stationed overseas with the Air Engine Group he writes, "I didn't know what happened to you I thought maybe they caught up with you and drafted you. I'm glad they didn't though, I'll shake anybody's hand that managed to keep out." Eventually Joseph started a construction company in Boston Massachusetts, presumably from the skills gained during his time with the CCC. A business card on the final page states, "Joseph D. Guarnieri: Contractor & Jobbing for Cleaning up House Gardens, and also new ideas for gardens."An interesting and complete look at the life of a young man finding his way through the America of 1930s. .

The photos are set in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly known as the Belgian Congo), Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Chad, Kenya, Central African Republic, Cameroon, and Congo-Brazzaville.

After a military career in the Russian air force and the Polish army, he left Eastern Europe and moved to Africa in 1924, settling in Leopoldville, now Kinshasa, Congo, where he began his career as a photographer. During the next seventeen years, until his death in 1941, Zagourski traveled around Central Africa photographing its people, places, and local traditions. At the same time, he established and maintained a store in Leopoldville to sell these images as postcards and large prints. He also exhibited his work at the Paris World's Fair in 1937.
