He also wrote stories and music, and did periodical illustrations. In 1923 he published "The Ship that Sailed to Mars", which has become a fantasy classic.

Complete 10 volume set of the National Patron of Honor Edition. Not registered to a specific patron. Signed on the right dedication page of volume 1 by Herman H. Weimert, National Commander of the Disabled American Veterans of the World War. Collection is complete, condition is Fine, all volumes. Clean, bright, and tight. Very minor darkening to leaf edges. Full leather, with no cracking. Green boards with ornate and beautiful gilt artwork to front cover, gilt decoration and lettering to spine. Beautifully illustrated end papers of the history of man through time. Top edge gilt. All text, as well as numerous illustrations and maps are in fine condition. A complete and fine set of a scarce collection. This set provides a unique snapshot into the world's history and into the thinking of American veterans at the end of the first World War, optimistically thought to be the "war to end all war." Its objective of understanding America's role in a turbulent world is particularly timely. This thorough collection is not only for those who love beautifully wrought books, but also for those interested in history, war, peace, and in remembering those who sacrifice in times of strife. These 10 volumes tell the history of the world-ancient, medieval, and modern-and the history of the United States though the end of the first great World War. In addition to text, the set tells its story via thousands of black and white and color photographs and illustrations, and via hundreds of maps and charts, many color fold-outs. From the foreword: "¿we have emerged from a world war, fought on our part to determine whether this nation, or any nation, may choose its way in peace. Five million Americans were called to the colors, and two million went overseas. Fifty thousand remain there forever. With the shock of this titanic conflict fresh in our experience, we now seek to understand its causes. Whether or not we may desire it, our interests have been drawn beyond America to the common problems of mankind. We are realizing that to comprehend the history of the United States one must know the history of the world. To promote, then, the intelligent civic insight that is one of the highest attributes of Americanism, this survey of the world's past has been prepared." From the website of the Disabled American Veterans organization (nee Disabled American Veterans of the World War), explaining its origins: "When the troops came home from World War I, some 300,000 carried grim reminders of war: disabling injuries, battle scars, gas-seared lungs, and prolonged illnesses. Following a tumultuous hero's welcome, America wiped the horror of war from its mind almost as quickly as the ticker tape was swept from the streets of New York City. As a result, the needs of the nation's disabled heroes were swept aside as well. Prejudice kept capable and qualified-but disabled-veterans from gaining employment in a job market with few enough opportunities to offer anyone. Veterans' benefits programs were administered by three separate government agencies with conflicting and overlapping responsibilities, leaving disabled veterans with massive confusion and red tape. Without a medical system dedicated to their needs, many disabled veterans found themselves sleeping on cots-or even on floors-in the halls of America's overwhelmed hospitals. Some just gave up the struggle, sitting on street corners with tin cups and signs reading: "Help Me. I'm a Disabled Veteran." Angered by the negligence and incompetence of the federal government in dealing with their problems, disabled veterans began forming local self-help groups in cities across America. In 1920, leaders from 250 of these groups gathered in Cincinnati, Ohio. Under the charismatic leadership of Judge Robert S. Marx, himself a veteran disabled in France, they federated into [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Woodcock

      1930 - Frank Weston Benson (1862-1951) was an American Impressionist artist, and a member of the Ten American Painters. He began his Studies at the school of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 1879, under Otto Grundmann, and later studied at the Académie Julian in Paris. Upon return to America, he would become an instructor at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In 1888 Benson gained favorable attention in his first showing with the Society of American Artist in New York, with a piece that suggested the influence of academic Realism rather than Impressionism. By the early 1890s he began using his family as subjects; Benson later recalled having realized at the time that ¿design¿ was the most important component of painting. Consequently, works of the period provided evidence of a greater interest in patterns, silhouette, and abstract design. Late in his career, Frank Benson returned his boyhood interest in ornithological illustration. Following the 1913 Amory Show, Benson quietly moved to revolutionize the field of American sporting art. His rendering of wildlife, hunting, fishing, and camping infused the field with heightened artistic sensitivity, and reinvigorated a tradition- burdened field. Historical accounts indicate that Benson¿s teenage bird studies were extremely realistic. We can infer that they were similar to works by Alexander Pope (American, 1849-1924) and Louis Agassiz Fuertes (American, 1874-1927). Those painters concentrated on painting objects with precision. Each blue jay painted by Fuertes had exactly the same color tones and patterns. This is realism in the sense that twelve jays in a cage look precisely the same. In contrast, Benson¿s artistic training brought him to realize that a viewer¿s experience of a jay¿s appearance varies with the tint of light cast by the sky, whether the jay is front lit or back lit, and the background. Furthermore, Benson realized that we did not perceive the precise feather pattern of a bird at a distance of 20 feet. Benson had learned that our eyes perceive light, not objects, and he introduced that realization into the sporting art field. Other artists such as Roland Clark, A. L. Ripley, and Richard Bishop quickly followed his lead. In 1915 he first exhibited etchings of wild fowl, to popular acclaim. After 1920 Benson turned increasingly to the depiction of landscapes featuring wild life, an outgrowth of his interest in hunting and fishing, from then on producing a steady and profitable output of etchings and watercolors in this vein. At the request of fellow artist and conservationist Jay Norwood ¿Ding¿ Darling, Benson designed the second Federal Duck Stamp on 1935. Etching, 15 1/4 x 12 3/4 inches

        CONFESSIONS OF ZENO

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1930 - A lovely copy of Svevo's best work, a novel that is widely regarded as the "great modern Italian novel." Book Fine with a touch of mottling to the cloth on the rear board, otherwise clean, fresh and unread. In a Very Good + price-clipped dust jacket with small chips at the spine ends and one corner, otherwise in a quite attractive state. Self-published in 1923, the novel was largely ignored until championed by James Joyce, who had known Svevo and his writing for over 15 years. In fact, Svevo is credited as the inspiration for Joyce's immortal "Leopold Bloom" character in "Ulysses." A charming, riotous work of psychological realism in which Svevo's neurotic character writes his memoirs on the advice of his shrink. Fine in Very Good +. dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Fish Shows - 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 1) Born around 1848, Fish Shows or 'Buusish' was a gallant Apsaroke warrior, who first fought under the renowned chief Red Bear against the Sioux. 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.

Based on the George du Maurier novel (1891) and the Constance Collier play (1917), the opera received sixteen performances from 1931 to 1935. Enormously popular with the public, both operas were denounced by many critics as too derivative." (American National Biography). HBS 65122. $1,250 [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Top edge spotted, others lightly browned, otherwise about Fine, square and tight, in better than Near Fine jacket, the spine dust-soiled and a bit darkened, edges lightly rubbed and nicked. Petersen A2.14. In 1925, Faulkner moved to New Orleans where he joined a literary circle centered on Sherwood Anderson and was introduced to the modernist innovations of T. S. Eliot and James Joyce. His interest in experimental writing was piqued, and he began a novel, his first, Soldier's Pay, portraying the tragic homecoming of a wounded war hero. Though set in Georgia, it was, nonetheless, a kind of rehearsal for the later Mississippi novels, full of despair and "mythic motifs of impotence and futile love." (The Literary Encyclopedia) Wheatley's stylish thrillers and occult novels made him one of the world's best-selling writers from the 1930s through the 1960s. His Gregory Sallust series was a key inspirations for Ian Fleming's James Bond stories.
