        [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. .

        COLLECTION OF SOUTH TEXAS REAL ESTATE EPHEMERA: Adams Gardens in the Valley of Golden Grapefruit / Points of Interest In and Around Brownsville / Why You Should Visit the Valley Now etc. etc

      Various.: Chas. F. C. Ladd. Circa 1930. ARCHIVE OF TEN ITEMS RELATING TO REAL ESTATE PROMOTION IN SOUTHERN TEXAS, various publishers, 1920s- 1930s. Good to very good condition. 1. REAL ESTATE BROCHURE FOR ADAMS GARDENS (between Harlingen and La Feria in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, Texas) "Adams Gardens in the Valley of Golden Grapefruit;" folded size is 4 x 9 inches unfolding to illustrated two-color poster size advertising sheet 24 x 18 inches. Text on the advertisement reads "Artists Conception of Reba Bass Lake, showing the homes and orchards, as it is designed to appear when fully developed." When folded in half, a 12 x 18 inch sheet pictures Adams Gardens in the southern-most point in Texas, located on the border with Mexico approximately 28 miles from Brownsville, Texas. Brochure has numerous pencil computations, the owner's name in pencil and the inscription "Knox Penn(sylvania)"; light wear, good condition. *** Developer Chas. F. C. Ladd is pictured on the brochure ("He has found Happy Homes for Hundreds") and fulsome text describes the glories of his new development. "More and more each year successful men and women of sufficient financial means to allow them to locate where they find things most to their liking are coming to the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas. Adams Gardens, on the main highway of the Valley, with its wide expanse of fertile soils, offers the choicest of sites for country homes, where all the comforts and conveniences of civilization can be enjoyed, amidst the luxuriance of a semi-tropical climate, and a citrus orchard developed under the most favorable conditions. Here you can make YOUR home in a land of orange blossoms, of palms and poinsettias, of winter sunshine and warmth--a most delightful place in which to live." The Texas State Historical Association's website states: "During the 1920s Brownsville underwent a new period of prosperity as the area experienced a prolonged land boom. Enterprising agents went to the midwestern and northern states boosting the abundant cheap land in and around Brownsville. Special trains were dispatched to bring prospective buyers to the area, and during the height of the boom in the early 1920s as many as 200 landseekers a day were being brought into the environs. The population of Brownsville, which was just over 6,000 in 1900, grew nearly four-fold during the next three decades, reaching 22,021 in 1930." The "Adams Gardens in the Valley of Golden Grapefruit" brochure is a remarkable example of hyperbolic depression-era promotional literature extolling real estate in the "Garden of Golden Grapefruit." _______________ 2. PHOTO-ILLUSTRATED REAL ESTATE BROCHURE "Adams Gardens In the Heart of the Lower Rio Grande Valley" (folded size is 9 x 4 inches) promoting Adams Gardens, Texas. Brochure unfolds to a map 12 x 18 inches locating Adams Gardens (between Harlingen and La Feria) in the context of the Lower Rio Grande Valley, with Brownsville dominant in the south-east. Two inset maps show 1) Texas in the context of the United States and 2) the Lower Rio Grande Valley in the context of Texas. Legend on map indicates Railroads, Graded Roads, Proposed Ship Channel at Brownsville, County Seats, etc. (After numerous delays, the deep water Ship Channel, approved by voters in 1928, opened in 1936.) Light wear, overall very good condition. **** Text extols the virtues of the Lower Rio Grande Valley ("Down Where The Golden Grapefruit Grows") and Adams Gardens, in particular (Chas. F. C. Ladd, Developer). Fulsome text states: "Adams Gardens, down in the southernmost Tip of Texas, offers wonderful attractive sites for winter homes and country estates, in a semi-tropical climate, where the winters have a mean temperature of 61.3 degrees, and the heat of the summers is moderated by cool breezes from the Gulf of Mexico. Here it is possible to live an outdoor life throughout the year--fish, hunt, play golf; find new health, new happiness, new life, far away from the noise, the dirt, and the nervous strain of life in the cities." (A hasty Zillow search indicates that "winter homes and country estates" are not a feature of Adams Gardens' current housing profile.) Another example of the hyperbolic depression-era promotional literature published to entice those living in colder climes in the northeast and midwest United States to travel "Down Where the Golden Grapefruit Grows." ______________________ 3. SEVEN EPHEMERAL PUBLICATIONS RELATING TO REAL ESTATE AND AGRICULTURE OPPORTUNITIES in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, circa 1930. Publications include tourist brochures, a newspaper off-print relating to the Valley, booster publications, a flow-chart showing fruit and vegetable production, etc. Three of the publications are offered through "Smith & Trainer, Indiana, Pennsylvania," agents for "Lone Star Immigration Company, Brownsville, Texas": these are a four panel brochure, 9 x 4 inches, titled "Points of Interest in and around Brownsville"; an eight page brochure, 8 1/2 x 6 inches touting "Unprecedented Opportunities for Investment" in the Valley; an 11 x 8 1/2 inch news-sheet sub-titled "Why You Should Visit the Valley Now." Also included is a four-panel 9 x 4 inch brochure from Lone Star titled "Lower Rio Grande Valley," extolling the region's bounties; an off-print ("Ship Canal Assures Prosperity") from the Indiana, Pennsylvania "Messenger"; an 11 x 17 inch spread sheet showing the Valley's booming growth in fruit and vegetable production between 1907 and 1930; a 9 x 4 inch eight-panel brochure encouraging immigration published by the Rio Grande Valley Telephone Company and titled "The Valley Catechism." This brochure (copyright 1929 by John M. Taylor) was offered with the following message: "We are sending you this pamphlet with the suggestion that you in turn mail it to a friend in the north." The "Smith & Trainer, Indiana, Pennsylvania" publications are a reflection of the speculative land boom that unfolded in the Valley in the 1920s, as discussed on the Texas State Historical Association's website. The Smith & Trainer news-sheet ("Why You Should Visit the Valley Now") amply supports the Historical Association's observation regarding land speculation by Northern investors arriving by train; it states "any person who contemplates a visit (to the Valley) in the future should take advantage of our next and last Spring Excursion, June 27, 1930. There is no obligation attached to this excursion whatever. But those who have the pioneers (sic) mind and can vision the future will recognize opportunities there now for investments that will have disappeared before next fall." All seven ephemeral items, each in very good, clean condition, indelibly reflect the Rio Grande Valley land-boom of the 1920s and the appeals made to speculators across the country. A rhetorical question posed in one pamphlet asks: "When is the best time to locate in the Lower Rio Grande Valley?" The succinct response: "Now." __________________________________ 4. Booklet "Services, Facilities, and Costs of Marketing Vegetables in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas" published by the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station 1928, 39pp, 9 x 6 inches, paper wrappers, light discoloration to the wrappers, otherwise very good condition. ******* A detailed study of the economics of marketing vegetables in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. The author observes "Prior to 1921 the price paid per acre for 161 farms averaged $346.00. In 1926 these same farms were valued by the owners at $627.00 per acre [an] increase in value of almost 20 percent a year...." One factor attributed by the author to the increased per-acre value of land was "increases in value of citrus groves." A well-researched document detailing infrastructure and expenses involved in growing and marketing vegetables in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. .

        The John Groth Collection

      (circa 1930-1980). A voluminous collection of over 700 original artworks; sketchbooks and working dummies; about 350 black & white photographs and 1500 color slides; books, correspondence, and ephemera; by American artist John August Groth. Known for his depictions of the downtrodden of the 1930s, of combat, and of animals in motion, Groth won an international reputation as an artist-correspondent during World War II, the Korean and Vietnam wars, and other major conflicts, drawing battlefield scenes from sketches and photographs made on site. Among the artworks are about 200 of Groth's early original prints and drawings; and over 60 watercolor paintings and 450 pen & ink drawings from throughout his career (in sepia and black and white, including many with color highlights). Most are medium to large scale works (measuring between 10" x 12" and 22" x 28"). Also included are eight color paintings, two of which (measuring 30" x 40") were painted for his celebrated 1969 illustrated edition of All Quiet on the Western Front. The artworks consist of signed finished works and sketches, and variant versions of works, several sheets of which have drawings on both sides. They are housed in the original cardboard boxes used by the University of Texas to ship them to Groth in New York City, and the nearly 200 works for All Quiet on the Western Front are housed in professionally made drop-spine cloth portfolio boxes.An adventurous traveler throughout his life, Groth was the first American war correspondent to enter Paris in 1944 at the liberation, to interview Picasso, and to enter Berlin (against orders) from behind Russian lines. Ernest Hemingway, who traveled with Groth in France and Germany during the last year of World War II, (and wrote the introduction to Groth's wartime book Studio: Europe), said of his drawings: "... if John would have made them from any closer up front he would have had to have sat in the Krauts' laps." The collection is comprehensive in scope, bringing together many of Groth's prints and drawings from the 1930s-1940s, and six later collections of artworks and sketches made for illustrated books, including All Quiet on the Western Front, and Mark Twain's The War Prayer and Pudd'nhead Wilson. These and other collections of original artworks are supplemented with travel diary sketchbooks; annotated working dummies (with original pen & ink and watercolor sketches) and publisher's layouts; clippings, correspondence and ephemera; and a trove of photographs and slides spanning his entire career.Born in Chicago in 1908, Groth studied with Todros Geller and George Grosz at the Art Institute of Chicago. Working as a WPA artist, he was discovered by Arnold Gingrich, founding editor of Esquire magazine, who made him the magazine's art director. Groth held that position for the next four years (1933-36), until leaving for New York City. During the 1930s he made drawings and prints of the ragged and poor of Chicago and New York City, and traveled to Mexico, Russia, and Pamplona, Spain (for the running of the bulls), sketching pictures of peasants, soldiers, and bulls. The collection contains 200 original artworks from this period, consisting of about 100 prints (etchings, drypoints, aquatint engravings, and lithographs), about 100 pen & ink drawings, and six medium scale color paintings. Many of these works were exhibited and published in Esquire in several series of portfolios. During the 1940's he continued to publish drawings for Esquire and other magazines, including two series of cartoons in The New Yorker, and several anti-Nazi and anti-Axis cartoons, before leaving for Europe to cover the war for the Chicago Sun and Parade magazine.From the beginning, Groth gravitated toward depictions of men and animals in motion, a style he called "speed line" in which he made gestural line renderings based on on-site sketches and photographs, and fleshed out the form with freely brushed watercolors. After the war he continued to travel widely (Mexico, Japan, and throughout Asia and Africa), publishing his travel diaries and accompanying artworks, and maintaining his reputation as one of America's best illustrators of books and magazines.All Quiet on the Western Front, considered his best illustrated book, was commissioned by the Limited Editions Club in the late 1960s and designed by Joseph Blumenthal at the Spiral Press. The artwork includes over 100 large pen & ink drawings and 24 large watercolor paintings (all measuring about 22" x 28"). Also included are about 50 smaller pen & ink drawings, Groth's working dummy (illustrated with original watercolor sketches), and two large color paintings (each measuring 30" x 40"). Other important artwork collections from this period include Mark Twain's The War Prayer: consisting of nearly 90 pen and ink drawings in sepia and black and white (most measuring from 14" x 19" to 22" x 30"), and Pudd'nhead Wilson: consisting of nine large watercolor paintings, and nearly 100 sepia/pen and ink drawings (ranging from 10" x 10" to 22" x 28"). Other highlights from the original artworks include five travel diary art sketchbooks kept by Groth during his trip through Mexico in the 1940s, about 40 proof aquatint engravings (18" x 23") of The Lipizzaner Stallions of the Spanish Riding School (1960), and two other large portfolios of original drawings for Anna Sewell's Black Beauty (1962), and Alice Hopf's Biography of an American Reindeer (1976).The large collection of nearly 340 photographs contains several images of Groth as a young man working at Esquire magazine, as a war correspondent, and at work with brush in hand throughout his life, both in the studio and sketching outside. Highlights include nearly 30 photographs taken in Germany and France during World War II (including two taken by Robert Capa of Groth sketching Hemingway), and several other photographs of Groth traveling on assignment in Europe, the United States, Asia, and Afghanistan. Among Groth's personal photographs are several of him with women from throughout his life (including women he met in Paris), one photograph of Groth with actress Jayne Mansfield, and several of him with fellow artists and friends, and teaching students in various sketching classes. The bulk of the collection of color slides (about 1500), were taken by Groth while on assignment in Africa: these include the Congo (taken during the Congo Crisis), Libya and Ethiopia (most of which were taken in the capital cities of Tripoli and Addis Ababa), Nigeria, and Kenya (including several images of the Maasai). Several others were taken in Europe, the Arctic, and the southwest United States.Among the ephemera and correspondence are World War II letters from the U.S. Army Supreme Headquarters notifying Groth of his suspension as war correspondent due to his unauthorized entry into Berlin (including his letter of rebuttal), and U.S. General Courtney Hodges's 1947 letter awarding Groth a certificate of appreciation for his "magnificent accomplishment of reporting throughout the war." Also included are several letters he received from Japanese citizens whom he helped after the war, a 1945 phonograph recording of an interview his gave about his book Studio: Europe, his dog tags, two bronze medallions, and about one Banker's box of magazines and newspaper clippings featuring his published articles and artwork, and articles about his assignments and artwork.Highlights from among the printed books include over 10 with notable inscriptions to Groth. These include three books inscribed by the great World War II cartoonist Dave Breger (one of which reads: "To John -- My pal, teacher, and disciple -- may you not think this book too corny -- Dave 1944"), and Leicester Hemingway's My Brother, Ernest Hemingway: "This book is for John Groth, who did so bloody much to make the whole book possible -- including an introduction to the editor, much information, and plenty of real give-a-damn care. - John, you are a marvel, Les Hemingway."A comprehensive and compelling collection, containing many of Groth's best finished works and working sketches that illuminate his versatile and striking artistic style, along with many archival materials and ephemera spanning his entire career.A detailed inventory of the collection is available. .

        Aircraft Markings.

      N.p. (1930) - (28)ff. An informative watercolor manuscript describing the wing and rudder markings of aircraft from the United States, Latin America, Asia, and Europe. Most of the markings date from around the end of World War I, charting the rise of military aviation. The wing marking included under the description "U.S.A. Navy" is the first National Aircraft Insignia for Naval aircraft, which was only used from 1917 to 1918. The symbol was then changed to resemble the markings of the other Allied Powers and to distinguish itself from the enemy. Interestingly, no markings are included from countries within the Central Powers. The illustrations and miniscule text have been executed with military-like precision. A fascinating view into the history of aviation, bound in full vellum. Front endpaper is detatched and cover shows slight soiling; else near fine. (3 by 2 1/4; 76x57mm).
