        Hills and the Sea, Malibu Coast

      c. 1930, Los Angeles - Wood engraving Approximately 6 x 8 inches image area plus margins. on wove paper, matted, glazed and framed. No. 32 of 50, signed by Landacre in pencil lower left. Also signed in the plate. Paul Hambleton Landacre (9 July 1893, Columbus, Ohio - 3 June 1963, Los Angeles, California) was one of the outstanding printmakers of the modern era. His distinguished body of work was largely responsible for elevating the wood engraving to an art form in twentieth-century America. Landacre's linocuts and wood engravings of landscapes, still lifes, nudes, and abstractions are celebrated for their technical virtuosity and mastery of design.In March 1932, the artist and his wife moved to a rustic house in the Echo Park neighborhood, also known as Edendale, near downtown Los Angeles, where they lived for the remainder of their lives. Landacre died in 1963 soon afterÑand emotionally resulting fromÑthe death of his wife who had been an essential working companion for 38 years, even helping the artist late in his life pull impressions from the formidable Washington hand press. In March 2006, with the growing appreciation of Landacre's artistic significance, their hillside home was declared a City of Los Angeles landmark (Historic Cultural Monument No. 839).Repositories of his work include the Boston Museum of Fine Arts; Library of Congress; Los Angeles Public Library; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Oakland Museum; New York Public Library; Philadelphia Museum; San Francisco, Achenbach Foundation for the Graphic Arts; and the Seattle Museum.

        ARCHIVOS MUSICALES ].

      Barcelona, 1879-1930. - Exceptionnel et précieux ensemble de partitions, pour la plupart manuscrites, composant les archives musicales du guitariste espagnol Severino García Fortea. Né vers 1850 à Siete Aguas près de Valence, il vécut toute sa vie à Barcelone où il mourut en 1931. Elève et ami du maître guitariste Tárrega, il fut un guitariste de haut niveau et l'un des premiers à composer systématiquement des arrangements pour la guitare à partir d'airs connus. On lui attribue notamment le premier arrangement pour la guitare de la célèbre pièce "Asturias" du compositeur Albéniz, initialement composée pour le piano et qui devint l'un des morceaux les plus célèbre du répertoire de la guitare classique. Ces archives se composent 1° d'une importante collection de partitions manuscrites, autographes pour la plupart, et 2° de partitions imprimées sous forme de fascicules conservés dans une chemise cartonnée ou sous forme de volumes reliés. Les archives manuscrites rassemblent plus de 150 partitions autographes signées de Severino García, dont plus des deux tiers sont constitués de ses travaux originaux de transcription pour la guitare et ses compositions originales. On y trouve également des pièces autographes signées par des musiciens de l'entourage de García Fortea, comme Francisco Tárrega, Manuel Rodríguez, Miguel Ángel Garcia Lassalette, Francisco Ferrán, Severino López, Antonio Mestres Gómez, Fernando Gravina, ou Antonio López Villanueva. Parmi les partitions imprimées se trouve notamment un exemplaire annoté de l'Arlésienne de Bizet, un exemplaire du livre de Baldomero Cateura i Turró sur la mandoline espagnole offert par l'auteur à Severino García Fortea, un recueil de partitions pour piano, et une importante collection de fascicules de musique notée dont certains ont été offerts à Severino García par leur auteur (Eduardo Mezzacapo, Manuel Burgés). Cet ensemble exceptionnel offre un témoignage de première importance sur les travaux du guitariste espagnol, sur son entourage et sur ses influences musicales dont elles permettent d'apprécier la variété.

        Black Manhattan (Association Copy Inscribed to Julius Rosenwald)

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1930. First Printing. Hard Cover. Good to Very Good/No Jacket. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Complete including all 14 photographic plates. Sound binding with intact hinges. Clean pages. Light wear to cover but sunned spine. Former owner's name inside front cover. Johnson's inscription on this important dedication copy reads, "For Julius Rosenwald with great admiration and deep regard. James Weldon Johnson / July 10, 1930." Rosenwald was a co-owner of Sears and Roebuck and one of the most generous philanthropists of his age. His Rosenwald Fund built 4,977 schools, 217 teachers' homes, and 163 shop buildings for African-American children in 15 states from Maryland to Texas. Johnson, one of the most influential African-Americans in the first half of the twentieth century, was a famous author, songwriter (he and his brother wrote "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing" as well as popular songs like "Under the Bamboo Tree"), educator, lawyer, diplomat, civil rights activist, and a longtime leader in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). In 1929, Rosenwald began to shift his philanthropic focus from funding black education projects to funding creativity in the African-American community by providing a series of large fellowships to black writers, artists, intellectuals, and researchers. Johnson was the first recipient, and he used his grant to publish Black Manhattan, the most important cultural study of African Americans from their first arrival in America to their triumphant achievements in 1920s Harlem. Johnson also thanks the Rosenwald Fund in this book's preface.
