        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).

        Fotografický obzor. Collection of photo supplements.

      A. Majital; Svaz Ceskoslovenských klubu fotografu amatéru 1930-1937, Prague - 2 volumes, 27 cm. Title page (from 1930 issue), and 630 gravure reproductions of photographs that appeared as an 8-page supplement to each monthly issue of Fotographicky Obzor for the years 1930-1937, collected and specially bound in two quarto volumes. Pagination, where present, is not consecutive because signatures from different numbers have been interleaved for binding purposes. Bound in half cloth over decorated paper boards. A bit thumbed, but very good overall. A compact and probably unique illustrated survey of these glory years of Czech photography. While professional Czech photographers between the wars made their livings from portraits and souvenir books, the amateurs pushed the limits of photography as an art. The greatest of these, Sudek and Ruzicka, exhibited with the "Amateur Photography Club," and published their work in the Rozhledy Fotografa Amatera and its successor, Fotographicky obzor.
