      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.

        [Photo Album]: Privelisti Carpatine (Carpathian Views)

      Romania. 1934. Oblong quarto. Full leather photo album measuring 10" x 12" with "Privelisti Carpatine" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 41 sepia toned photographs most measuring 5" x 7", some larger, all captioned in Romanian, and affixed to stiff grey album pages. The firast two pages have been removed and there is some curling to the pages, else near fine. A photo album from 1934 of a trip to the Carpathian Mountains in Romania. The scenes depict the beautiful landscape of Romania with views of the various mountain ranges that encompass the Carpathian mountain range including one of a sheep herder with his flock, another of a group of skiers, and some traditional homes beautifully captioned in handwritten Romanian. Dracula can not be seen but surely that's because you can not capture him on film or in a mirror, that being said we presume he was among the skiers. An exquisite album of mountain landscapes from the infamous Carpathians. .

        Cocos Island Sailfish Club", a finely executed decorative map, commemorating FDR and the Presidential staff's catch of sailfish on board the U. S.S. Houston, during one of the early Presidential cruises in the Pacific Ocean

      N.p. [U.S.S. Houston?], n.d. [ca. 1934-5] - A remarkably fine memento of one of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's first visits to the Cocos Islands in the summer of 1934 or the autumn of 1935. In July 1934, Roosevelt sailed aboard the Houston through the Panama Canal (11 July), the first President to do so, and stopped at Cocos Island on his way to Hawaii and Portland, Oregon. In October 1935, President Roosevelt embarked on the Houston in Seattle and sailed to the Cerros Islands, Magdalena Bay, Cocos Islands, and Charleston, S.C. Roosevelt would make four more trips to the Cocos Islands, again on the U.S.S. Houston in August 1938 (see pp. 16-18 of the printed Log of the Cruise, which gives an account of fishing for sailfish), and twice in 1940 aboard the U.S.S. Tuscaloosa. The names of the club members include Roosevelt's bodyguard, Gus Gennerich, and his secretary Franklin B. Adams, as well as "Pa" Watson (one of the chroniclers of the 1938 trip), and naval aides Callaghan and McIntyre (ROOSEVELT, FRANKLIN D) 15-1/2 x 21 inches. Pencil on paper, showing a map of Cocos Island, identifying landmarks, with a list of the Members of the "Club" ("Franklin D. Roosevelt, Ross T. McIntyre, Edwin M. Watson, Daniel J. Callaghan, Gus Gennerich, Frederick B. Adams, Basil O'Connor"), two large leaping sailfish enclosing the caption, all surrounded by a decorative border of small tropical fish. Artist unknown; docketed in pencil on verso "H.D. Alexandra, Navy Recruiting Bureau, New York City". A few small pinholes, some edgewear and marginal abrasions, one marginal tear mended on verso, very good condition overall

      Los Angeles: Columbia Pictures, 1934. First Edition. Fine. This is an ORIGINAL fully restored, linenbacked three-sheet (41" x 81") theatrical movie poster for "THE FIGHTING RANGER" starring Buck Jones, Dorothy Revier, Frank Rice, Bradley Page and Ward Bond. Buck Jones posters from the 1930's are among the most colorful, spectacular and collectible of all the Western movie posters. This particular three-sheet is thought by many to be the most unique Buck Jones poster of them all. The colors and composition, including the positioning of Buck Jones and Dorothy Revier, make it particularly attractive and unlike any other Western poster of the period. It has become increasingly scarce. The poster was originally linenbacked with a few small defects (some crossfold paper loss, pin holes and creases along the edges), but has since been restored completely by the artisans of Studio Conservation of Vista California and is now in beautiful condition. Free shipping to any United States address.
