        [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. .

        L'Afrique qui Disparait.

      c. 1930 - Twenty-one silver gelatin prints, postcard size. Very good tonal range and in good condition. This collection consists of postcards made from photographs taken by Casimir Zagourski in Africa between 1924 and 1941, which formed a part of his overal project, "L'Afrique Qui Disparait" (Disappearing Africa). 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. The postcards depict a variety of aspects of everyday life in these different settings. Casimir Zagourski, of Polish parentage, was born in Ukraine in 1880. 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.

        Scena di sciatori con nota a matita dell’autore.

      1930 - Erwin Merlet nacque a Vienna l’8 dicembre 1886, e ad 8 anni si trasferì a Merano, città che divenne la sua seconda patria. In gioventù ebbe due passioni: l’amore per la montagna e quello per l’arte. Sotto consiglio della mamma divenne medico, ma dopo il servizio militare frequentò l’Accademia delle belle arti di Monaco, fu anche sciatore di successo, un buon vogatore e boxer! Assieme a Gunther Langes, salì alcune pareti del gruppo delle Pale di San Martino, ma la maggior parte del suo tempo era riservata alla pittura. Dipingeva all’aperto e nell’atelier; eseguiva dei ritratti su ordinazione e naturalmente paesaggi montani, con molta pazienza arrivò anche ad un certo successo artistico, ma non potè goderlo a lungo a causa del tifo che lo strappò alla vita, appena cinquantatreenne il 24 giugno 1939. Solo recentemente si sta assistendo ad una rivalutazione della sua opera artistica. Formato: China, matita ed acquarello, con cornice moderna, 21,5x29 cm senza cornice. Firma in stampatello sulla destra. Più che buono. La libreria offre per un periodo limitato uno sconto del 15% su tutti i suoi libri. Il prezzo originale dell'articolo era 480.00 euro.

        THE EIGHTEEN-EIGHTIES. Essays by Fellows of the Royal Society of Literature. Edited by Walter de la Mare.

      Cambridge: Cambridge University Press 1930 - FIRST EDITION, occasional library stamps to pages, pp. xxviii, 271, 8vo, original green cloth stamped in gilt to front, backstrip lettered in gilt with tips softened and shadow of previous library label, a few spots of cloth removal and scuffing to lower board, library labels (Leila Dilworth Jones Memorial Library, Connecticut) to pastedowns, dustjacket with a couple of nicks and some light chipping at head of backstrip, top corners and rear panel, good The biography of T.S. Eliot is characterised by three important loves, all of which affected his life and work in very different ways: his first marriage to Vivien[ne] Haigh-Wood was a desperately unhappy arrangement, during and after which Eliot agonised and despaired over his decisions; his second marriage, to Valerie Fletcher, was an altogether happier affair that brought him contentment and stability in the latter phase of his life. Before and between both of these relationships came Emily Hale - a childhood friend of his cousin Eleanor Hinkley, whom Eliot first met at family gatherings in his youth.Possibly emboldened by news of the disintegration of his first marriage, Hale - as Lyndall Gordon describes it, in her biography of Eliot that deals extensively with Hale in its second volume - re-established contact with Eliot in 1927, ostensibly to ask for his literary guidance in relation to her present teaching post, and by the late twenties they had become regular correspondents with numerous visits taking place on both sides of the Atlantic. One feature of their relationship that Gordon notes is his making a gift to Hale of each of his publications as they appeared - Gordon has this beginning with 'Shakespeare and the Stoicism of Seneca' in 1927, but at least one earlier publication exists that bears an inscription from Eliot to Hale ['Ara Vus Prec', with an inscription dated to 1923, sold at Sotheby's in 2011]. The majority of these were bequeathed by Hale to various institutions - Harvard, Princeton, and Scripps College - for reasons of necessity or in response to a turn in their relationship.This book has Emily Hale's holograph bookplate on the front pastedown, stating 'This book belongs to Miss Emily Hale, Abbot Academy, Andover', and so is likely to have been jettisoned by Hale following her retirement from that institution in 1957. This was in the same year that Eliot, to her surprise, married for the second time - a break that proved decisive and terminal, removing once and for all the mutually cherished possibility of their friendship becoming a romance. Despite the abundance of possible material - as well as his printed works, and their voluminous correspondence (his estate's embargo on Eliot's letters to her will be removed in 2020), Hale's bequests show her to have been the recipient of much work in manuscript and draft form - very little has come up for sale; indeed, the above-mentioned copy of 'Ara Vus Prec' is unique among auctions. Eliot's essay, 'The Place of Pater' [pp. 96-106], appears here for the first time - it was later retitled 'Arnold and Pater' - and ranks amongst his finest critical work. In terms of the gifts he made to Hale, it belongs very much in the category of her appeal to his literary authority by which their relationship experienced its rekindling, and dates from that first flush of their renewed contact. Hale's bookplate, and its subsequent fate as a library copy at Hale's own 'alma mater' (Miss Porter’s School, Farmington, Connecticut) in the seventies, supply further biographical reference points. In terms of the emotional life of the poet, there is no more significant association than the one to which this inscription refers.

        Five Line Blocks of The Goops

      1930 - Five partial line blocks from one of Gelett Burgess's Goops books that had been repurposed for a McNeil Laboratories advertisement circa 1930s. Zinc metal plates mounted on wood blocks of various sizes from approximately 2" x 2.5" to 6.5" x 4". A touch of damage to the head of one Goop, likely from the blocks being cut down from a larger full-sized image, else near fine. Laid in is an Autographed Letter Signed from Grace McNeil along with an envelope and the tattered original mailer from McNeil Laboratories. Grace McNeil was the wife of Robert Lincoln McNeil, who in 1933 founded McNeil Laboratories which is now part of Johnson & Johnson. She apparently sent the wood blocks to a friend to use and explains in the letter: "These are the remnants of the 'Goops.' The book of the original design was once lent to I-don't-remember-Whom. So this is all! I don't seem to have a printing of a third flyer [advertisement], which there is a die of. If you can use them the printer can cut away the names, as we had done."The Goops were a popular series of seven children's books published by Burgess starting in 1900 with *Goops and How to be Them* and ending with *New Goops and How to Know Them* in 1951, the year of his death. The books taught children manners by exposing readers to the poor behavior of the ever bumptious Goops children depicted through pictures and verse. The line blocks here show Goops cooking, sitting at a table eating, walking with packages, and using an early telephone. McNeil Laboratories incorporated the Goops into their advertising by cutting down some of the line blocks used to print their books and recycling select images that best fit their marketing needs.A nice example of licensing for this popular 20th Century children's book and the recyclable nature of materials during The Great Depression.
