        Typed Letter - Signed

      Chicago, Il 1930 - Signed "J S McDonnell Jr" on AirTransport Engineering Corporation letterhead and is dated June 12, 1930. The letter has a very minor marking of a paper clip on the top center area, otherwise is in fine condition. James Smith McDonnell was born in Denver, Colo., April 9, 1899. He grew up in Little Rock, Ark., where his father, also named James McDonnell, was a successful cotton merchant and ran a general store. Every morning before school, young James S. McDonnell delivered copies of the Arkansas Gazette on horseback. He graduated from Little Rock High School in 1917, just as World War I broke out. McDonnell served briefly as a private in the Army and then attended Princeton University, from which he graduated with honors in physics in 1921. While in college, he joined the Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC). After Princeton, he enrolled at Massachusetts Institute of Technology for graduate studies in aeronautical engineering. While still at MIT, he continued his ROTC affiliation, passed the Army Air Service physical and passed much of the ground-school work required for pilots. In August 1923, McDonnell was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Army Air Service Reserve and assigned to Brooks Field, Texas, for flight training. He graduated from MIT in 1925. After earning his pilot's wings, McDonnell spent a year as a "gypsy pilot," doing odd jobs for people who owned airplanes. Finally, he landed a job as aeronautical engineer and pilot with Huff Doland Airplane Co. in Ogdensburg, NY and subsequently a stress analyst and draftman with the Consolidated Aircraft Company of Buffalo, NY in 1924-1925. In April 1927, he heard about a competition offered by the Guggenheim Foundation for the design of a safe, light, training aircraft. The next year, McDonnell and two colleagues, Constantine Zakhartchenko and James Cowling, decided to leave Hamilton, which was being absorbed by the United Aircraft and Transportation Corporation, and organize J.S. McDonnell Jr. & Associates. The three entered the "Doodlebug" in the competition, but it didn't win, and the hard economic times of the Great Depression kept it out of production. Meanwhile in 1929, McDonnell becamevice-president of Airtransport Engineering Coorperation, a Chicago consulting firm, and in 1931 he left that job to become an engineer and test pilot with the Great Lakes Aircraft Coorporation in Cleveland, OH whre he remained until 1932. On June 30, 1934, he married Mary Elizabeth Finney, whose father, Dr. John Finney, was founder of the American College of Surgeons. McDonnell resigned from Martin in 1938, determined to form his own company. On July 6, 1939, he incorporated the McDonnell Aircraft Corp. in St. Louis, Mo. Within the next three decades, the company would become the leading producer of jet fighters and would build the first spacecraft to carry an American into orbit. By the mid-1960s, McDonnell Aircraft Corp. was the largest employer in Missouri, and in 1967, it expanded its operation by merging with the largest employer in California, the Douglas Aircraft Co. James S. McDonnell took over as chairman and chief executive officer of the McDonnell Douglas Corp. In 1971, his nephew, Sanford N. McDonnell, became president, and James S. McDonnell was chairman of the board and chief executive officer. His nephew took over as CEO in 1972. James Smith McDonnell remained chairman of the board of directors until his death on Aug. 22, 1980. During his career, James Smith McDonnell received numerous awards and honorary degrees. His awards included the Robert Collier Trophy, the Guggenheim Medal, Founders Medal of the National Academy of Engineering and the NASA Public Service Award. He was remembered for his many civic duties, particularly his chairmanship of the United Nations Association of the United States. In 1958, the McDonnell Aircraft Corp. was the first organization in the world to celebrate United Nations Day as a paid holiday. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

She was the recent widow of Thorsten Jonsson the journalist and critic who had been instrumental in getting Faulkner published in Sweden. On the night of the Nobel dinner 11th December - Faulkner walked Else home. He inscribed whatever copies of his books she had in the apartment and the two began a passionate affair which lasted several years. The couple met several times in Paris. Faulkner destroyed her letters to him but his side of the correspondence is one of the fullest and most remarkable extant. Faulkner's relationship with Else Jonsson was undoubtedly the most significant of his later life. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves” (H.G. Wells).“From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled…although he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!” (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914).

        La Symphonie à Dieu

Tirage à 471 exemplaires. Un des 370 numérotés sur Arches, celui-ci portant sur le faux titre cet ENVOI autographe signé et daté juillet 1933 de Jouve : « à André Masson grand et fatal artiste, en le remerciant encore pour l¿image admirable qu¿il a mise sur Sueur de Sang ». ¤¤¤¤¤¤¤ Achevé d¿imprimé le 10 juin 1933, le livre SUEUR DE SANG que Jouve évoque dans sa dédicace fut publié par les éditions des Cahiers Libres. Pour les 15 premiers exemplaires son directeur René Laporte demanda à André Masson une eau-forte originale, tout comme il avait sollicité Salvador Dali, Max Ernst et Yves Tanguy pour d¿autres titres. L¿année suivante, l¿écrivain publie une seconde édition du recueil, toujours aux Cahiers libres, qu¿il corrigera et complétera en y ajoutant entre autre le grand poème Piéta dédié à André Masson. Ce texte tout comme la dédicace de Jouve sur LA SYMPHONIE A DIEU marque bien l¿amitié qui liait les deux artistes. Cependant, il faudra attendre 1952 pour que Masson illustre à nouveau un livre de Jouve en donnant une lithographie pour le tirage confidentiel de LANGUE, également orné d¿estampes de Sima et de Balthus.

        Wolf Lies Down - Apsaroke

      Boston: Suffolk Engraving Company, 1930. A breath-taking image from "The North American Indian", the grandest illustrated work ever produced in the United States, the most important illustrated work on Native Americans, and the single greatest book in Western Americana. Only the double-elephant folio edition of Audubon's "Birds of America" surpasses Curtis in its massive ambition and beauty of execution. "...Because of the singular combination of qualities with which he has been blessed, and because of his extraordinary success in making and using his opportunities... (Curtis) has been able to do what no other man has ever done; what, as far as we can see, no other man could do. He is an artist who works out of doors and not in a closet. He is a close observer, whose qualities of mind and body fit him to make his observations out in the field, surrounded by the wild life he commemorates. He has lived on intimate terms with many different tribes of the mountains and the plains. He knows them as they hunt, as they travel, as they go about their various avocations on the march and in camp. He knows their medicine men and their sorcerers, their chiefs and warriors, their young men and maidens. He has not only seen their vigorous outward existence, but has caught glimpses, such as few white men ever catch, into that strange spiritual and mental life of theirs; from whose inner most recesses all white men are forever barred...." (Theodore Roosevelt, Foreword to Volume I) A member of the Never Packs Game clan, Wolf Lies Down was a Mountain Crow leader, who fought against the Sioux in the Battle of Pryor Creek near Billings, Montana in 1860. According to Curtis, in "stature and in vigor the Apsaroke, or Crows, excelled all other tribes of the Rocky Mountain region, and were surpassed by none in bravery and in devotion to the supernatural forces that gave them strength against their enemies." (Volume IV) Originally planters from the upper Midwest, they inhabited the Plains and Prairies region of the United States, where they became hunters and skilled horsemen. Edward Curtis was fascinated by the story of the Native Americans from childhood. His in-depth knowledge of the various tribes increased in parallel with his skill as a photographer during his participation in a number of scientific expeditions in the 1890s. In 1896, Curtis began to take photographs of the Native American tribes (by 1930 he had taken over 40,000 negatives of eighty tribes) and evolve his hugely ambitious plan for a comprehensive work which would illustrate his romantic vision of Native American life before the disastrous impact of European contact. With the enthusiastic support of President Theodore Roosevelt (who wrote the foreword to the present work) and the financial backing of J. Pierpont Morgan (Curtis was introduced to him by Roosevelt), the publishing project finally got under way in 1906. Pierpont Morgan died in 1913 just before the completion of the ninth volume, but his son agreed to continue underwriting the project; between them, they eventually contributed about a third of the $1,500,000 cost. What had originally been projected to take five or six years eventually stretched to twenty-three, finally reaching a conclusion in 1930 but leaving Curtis a broken and bankrupt man. Nonetheless, his grand design was completed, and his work remains as his monument. Cf. Naef & Goldschmidt The Truthful Lens 40; cf. Howes C-965. Photogravure after Edward Curtis, printed by the Suffolk Engraving Company, Japon paper. Very good condition apart from a mild surface abrasion in the top left corner of the plate mark.

        The Castle

      London: Martin Secker,, 1930. A Novel. Translated by Willa and Edwin Muir Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to upper board and spine gilt, top edge stained yellow. With the dust jacket. Some typical spotting to fore edge, very minor partial browning to the endpapers, spine just a little faded, but an excellent copy in the nicked and slightly rubbed dust jacket with the inevitable tanning at the spine and a trace of loss at the head and foot of the spine panel. First English edition, first impression. The Castle will never attain the fame of its sister The Trial, but in literary terms it is more than a match. This was the first publication in English of any of Kafka's books, preceding English editions of The Trial and Metamorphosis by some seven years. It is far scarcer than either.
