        But Not the End

      Boston: Little, Brown. 1934. First. First edition. A little foxing to the page edges, else fine in near fine dustwrapper with a small chip on the rear panel, and a little soiling. The author's uncommon second novel, about a busted stockbroker, his lovely but neglected wife, a prize-fighter and what they get up to. Better-known for his mysteries, this novel seems to shade more towards romance. A very nice copy. .

      Borden, Hants, Hampshire, England 1934 - On offer is a handwritten notebook-style instruction manual, as titled on the cover "Fencing Lessons Foil - Sabre - Epee". The inside front cover has a pastedown fully identifying the writer: "Serjeant T. Wells of the 1st BATTALION OXFORDSHIRE & BUCKINGHAMSHIRE LIGHT INFANTRY. 19th Sept. to 13th Dec. 1934. Instructors Gartzen and Harkinson". An Index of the 67 page book shows that besides the lessons in the three sword types there are chapters on the Army Fencing Union, Pitches and Arenas and Bayonet Team Competitions. We are led to believe that this book is also a manual for the Instructor trainee as most pages have three columns headed: Pupil, Master, Remarks. The remarks appear to be helpful hints for the Instructor in dealing with the pupil. There are a number of hand drawn illustrations, including charts, tables, graphs and such plus there are quite a few little. 1.5" x 1", photographs which were cut from elsewhere and glued in as part of the lesson. In addition to the identification on the cover and inside front cover the back cover has Sjt. Wells handwritten address being we believe, Bordon, Hants [Hampshire]. Boards are cracked in the hinges and the netting shows but otherwise in very good shape. Provenance: From the library of a famed Hungarian fencing master, instructor, Olympian and coach. Superb fencing collectible. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Su-Pe-La, Hopi Patriarch

      1934 - Approximately 9-1/4 x 8-1/2 inches image area. Etching and drypoint. Signed in pencil lower right. Carl Oskar Borg (March 3, 1879 Ð May 8, 1947) was a Swedish born, American painter who was known for themes of the Southwestern United States.Borg was born into a poor family in VŠstergštland , Sweden. He moved to London at age 20 to assist portrait and marine artist George Johansen. In 1901, he sailed for the United States. Borg taught art at the California Art Institute in Los Angeles and at the Santa Barbara School of the Arts. He became a protege of American philanthropist and art patron Phoebe Hearst. She gave him the opportunity to return to Europe to study art.Borg was influenced by the nature of the southwestern United States, especially the states of Arizona and New Mexico. He worked in various mediums including oil, watercolor, etchings, and woodblock. He was commissioned to paint posters for the railway company, Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. His posters were put up on the company's sales offices and attracted attention. He was known for his dramatic paintings of the Grand Canyon. Borg was a founding member of the Painter's Club of Los Angeles and the California Art Club. He was one of the first art directors for a major movie studio in Hollywood and he worked with the production of silent films in the years 1925-1928 with Sam Goldwyn, Douglas Fairbanks and Cecil B. de Mille. Examples of his art are on display at Brigham Young University, Harvard University, Smithsonian American Art Museum and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
