        A unique album of correspondence, including 13 autographed photographs, 8 additional unsigned photographs, 6 Typed Letters, signed, and 4 Autographed Letters, signed, 9 completed "mimeographed form" war records with signed and handwritten responses, and other items of interest by, and about, some of the most distinguished aviators of WWI, including members of the renowned Lafayette Flying Corps, and Lafayette Escadrille. Most of the letters, forms, and photos were replies to inquiries from Colonel James Farber, a writer for the Dayton Daily News, who was asked by an aeronautics magazine in 1934, to "ascertain the present whereabouts and occupations of various wartime pilots."

      - ACES AND AVIATORS OF WW I. Included among the 10 letters is a correspondence on personal letterhead, from renowned American war ace and Medal of Honor recipient, Eddie Rickenbacker, who had 26 aerial victories and was America's most celebrated aviator of the war. Another intriguing response comes from combat pilot, Edwin C. Parsons, one of the 38 members of the famed Lafayette Escadrille, who later became an FBI agent, screen writer, and technical director for Paramount Films. In his 1934 letter, which is type written on Fox Film Corporation Studio letterhead, Parsons writes in part, "I haven't flown a great deal in recent years, having no particular desire to do so and finding no great pleasure in it, although I have been director of flying activities and technical director of several air pictures such as WINGS, LEGION OF THE CONDEMNED and HELL'S ANGELS." WINGS, a 1927, action-romance starring Clara Bow and Gary Cooper, was directed by another former World War I pilot queried by Farber, William "Wild Bill" Wellman. Wellman enlisted in the French Foreign Legion in 1917, but was later assigned as a fighter pilot and was the first American to join N.87, les Chats Noir (Black Cat Group), in the Lafayette Flying Corps. He was awarded the Croix de Guerre with two palms for his service. In his 1934 letter to Farber, which is type written on Walter Wagner Productions, Inc. letterhead, Wellman writes in part, "The only times that I fly now are when it is necessary from a business standpoint. I do my flying, then, as a passenger-in other words, frankly, I have had my belly full."One notable correspondence comes from Russian-born, Boris Sergievsky, and includes an accompanying war record that is type-written in his own words. One of the most colorful aviators of his time, Sergievsky began his military career as an infantry officer and was awarded Imperial Russia's highest honor for leading a charge that captured a fortified enemy hilltop. Sergievsky then took to the air and earned the title of ace while flying against Austria-Hungary during the war. After the Bolshevik revolution he joined the White Army, and in 1923, he emigrated to America, where he eventually became chief test pilot for Igor Sikorsky, setting 17 world aviation records. His 1934 letter to Farber is hand written on Sikorsky Aviation Corporation letterhead and includes the original accompanying envelope. Other pilots who wrote letters in response to Farber's inquiries include, Charles H. Dolan, Jr., Frederick Ordway, Jr., Cecil "Pop" Sellers (Sellers died, along with Pan American's first pilot, Edwin Musick, in a mid air explosion while working for the airline), Eliot Springs, Arthur J. Coyle, Jesse creech, Lawrence Smart, and Raymond Collishaw. (Collishaw was Canada's second-highest scoring fighter pilot, and achieved 60 aircraft victories by the war's close, plus a further eight observation balloons, and went on to become a vice admiral in WWII.) 13 autographed photos from this collection include; Eddie Rickenbacker (inscribed to Charles P. Searles), Herman Whitman, Henry Forster, Thomas Moore (three autographed photos), Douglass Campbell (also includes an autographed "Sky Birds" trading card), Reed Landis, Ernest Crossen, John Loggie, and German pilot Kurt Liebau. 8 additional unsigned photos and reprints also accompany the 9 "mimeographed form" war records. These signed, mimeographed forms include biographical information, including parents, marriages, children, occupation, etc., war service including, units served with, enemy aircraft destroyed, dates wounded or captured, decorations, etc. The form also asks for opinions on the "greatest war flyer" from each country. Also included in this unique collection, is an interesting promotional pictorial broadside of William Avery "Billy" Bishop, Canada's top ace of the war, who is credited with 72 victories. The broadside reads in part, "The above genuine Autograph by Colonel Bishop is indeed a Souvenir of the Great World [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

Last night a vast audience attended the premiere of Jean Riviere's new cinema, "The Two Worlds,".The beautiful star herself was present, escorted by a young man known as her infatuated protector of the moment. .Then came the masterly but savage scene, the climax, which showed the heroine strangled in her bath by a faithless lover." Emmanuel Bove was born Emmanuel Bobovnikoff in 1898 in Paris to a Russian father and a Luxembourgish mother. He studied at the Ecole alsacienne and the lycée Calvin de Genève. At the age of 14, he decided to become a novelist. In 1915, he was sent to boarding school in England, where he completed his education.In 1921, he married Suzanne Vallois and moved to the suburbs of Vienna. There he began his writing career, publishing numerous popular novels under the pseudonym Jean Vallois. He returned to Paris in 1922 and worked as a journalist. His work came to the attention of Colette, who helped him publish his first novel under his own name, Mes amis (My Friends) in 1924. The novel became a success and he consistently published until the The Second World War, winning the Prix Figuière in 1928.

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS), to Lester Anderson, dated 31 July 1934, ribbon copy, one sheet of letter-size bond, single-spaced, typed on recto only, signed in full in blue pencil ("Clark Ashton Smith") at bottom, with one autograph edit (insertion of three words)

      1934. Anderson was a California Bay Area fan to whom Smith wrote on several other occasions as well. This letter, about 400 words, has the tone of something written from a sense of obligation rather than pleasure, to address points raised evidently in Anderson's previous letter to him. No, Smith doesn't think socialism will work in this country, or in Russia either. He thought Robert W. Chambers' SLAYER OF SOULS was "inexpressively pediculous." He dismisses most of the current pulp magazines, except for ASTOUNDING STORIES, and doesn't think much of Dashiell Hammett's anthology, CREEPS BY NIGHT. "Harre's BEWARE AFTER DARK is still unapproached in my opinion, as an anthology of weirds." Published (with slight alterations) in Schultz and Connors, Selected Letters of Clark Ashton Smith, p. 259-260. Three light horizontal creases where folded for mailing, very good. (#136826)

Шамбинаго, писанный и иллюстрированный палехским мастером И. Голиковым. [М.]: Academia, 1934. - 52 с.: ил.; 43х29.4 см. - 3300 экз. Фронтиспис и девять цветных иллюстраций под лаком в лист, цветные с золотым вкраплением сюжетно-растительные форзацы, орнаментированный титульный лист, заставки, концовки и инициалы работы выдающегося палехского мастера лаковой миниатюры, потомственного иконописца И. Голикова. Шрифт стилизован под рукописный полуустав. Художественная редакция, макет издания и общее наблюдение М.П. Сокольникова. В составном издательском переплёте: на крышках цветные иллюстрированные вставки под лаком по рисункам И. Голикова. Торшонированный обрез. Шёлковое ляссе. Без футляра. Голиков создавал иллюстрации для «Слова о полку Игореве» на протяжении двух лет. Полиграфическое оформление книги было осуществлено типографией Гознака и полностью отвечало замыслу художника. Роскошное художественное издание, признанное шедевром книжного искусства. В книге помещено 10 миниатюр: 1) изображение Баяна, Игоря и Ярославны; 2) встреча Игоря с Всеволодом - отсутствует; 3) затмение солнца; 4) поход; 5) битва; 6) пленение Игоря; 7) Святослав рассказывает боярам о своем сне; 8) «Злато слово» Святослава; 9) плач Ярославны - отсутствует ; 10) бегство Игоря из плена. Переплет оформлен как поверхность палехской шкатулки: в центре в виде медальона изображение битвы воинов на конях, остальная поверхность коричневого (или черного) цвета с изображением золотом летящих стрел и по четырем углам - сражающихся воинов. Сохранность рисунков в уцелевших экземплярах плохая, так как все иллюстрации были покрыты экспериментальным лаком. В результате цвета не соотвествуют оригиналу и имеет тусклый "ржавый" вид. Иван Иванович Голиков (8 января 1887 (27 декабря 1886) -- 30 марта 1937) -- русский художник-миниатюрист, заслуженный деятель искусств РСФСР (1935 год), непосредственный инициатор и учредитель Артели древней живописи Палеха 4-5 декабря 1924 года Иван Голиков родился в Москве в семье потомственного художника-иконописца с трёхвековой художественной преемственностью Ивана Михайловича Голикова. Когда ему было 7 лет семья переехала в Палех, спасаясь от страшного голода, который начался в Москве. В десятилетнем возрасте он был отдан на обучение иконописному делу в известную в Палехе мастерскую братьев Сафоновых. В 1900 году, обучившись приёмам доличного письма, Иван Голиков отправился в Петербург, а затем в Москву для работы в иконописных мастерских. Отец скончался, когда Ивану исполнилось 14 лет, он остался старшим в семье. Юноше пришлось работать, не покладая рук -- он занимался реставрацией живописи, росписью церквей и монастырей. Его специализацией было доличное письмо, то есть, художник писал на иконах одежды. Расписывал церковь Святоозерского монастыря от мастерской М. Л. Парилова в 1907 году и церкви в Казани. Оставил крупицы своей работы в Новодевичьем монастыре, Грановитой палате, в московских и питерских храмах. Работая в Петербурге, он некоторое время посещал рисовальные классы училища барона Штиглица. В 1907--11 годах Иван Голиков проходил воинскую службу, в 1911--14 годах работал в мастерской Н. М. Сафонова в Палехе, и расписывал церковь в Казани. В 1914--17 годах ушёл на фронт Первой мировой войны в составе 27 Сибирского полка, и был контужен. После первой мировой войны и Революции 1917 года художник начинает свои самостоятельные творческие поиски. Некоторое время он работает театральным художником в Шуе, Кинешме, Иваново-Вознесенске и Костроме, создавая декорации к спектаклям «Лес», «Гроза», «Снегурочка», «Борис Годунов», «Русская свадьба» и «Лекарь поневоле». В 1921 году он создал свою первую миниатюру -- расписал шкатулку из папье-маше, и показал её руководству Кустарного музея. В 1922 году, работая в мастерской художника А. А. Глазунова, Иван Голиков создал целый ряд росписей на папье-маше, наметив основные черты нового искусства, и став, по сути, его отцом-основателем. К этому времени мастер смог органично синтезировать особенности трёх иконописных школ -- Палехской, Строгановской и Ярославской. Манера художника заинтересовала ряд искусствоведов, среди которых был его дальний родственник А. В. Бакушинский, оказавший содействие в организации артели по производству расписных шкатулок из папье-маше. 4-5 декабря 1924 года была создана «Артель древней живописи», костяк которой составили бывшие иконописцы. В том же 1924 году работы палехских мастеров -- И. И. Голикова, И. М. Баканова, И. В. Маркичева и А. В. Котухина были показаны на XIV Международной художественной выставке в Венеции, вызвав большой интерес. В следующем, 1925 году «Артель древней живописи» получила Гран-при на Всемирной выставке декоративных искусств в Париже. После Парижа были успехи в Милане, Вене и Берлине. Иван Голиков расписал множество лакированных изделий -- от крупных ларцов до миниатюрных бисерниц. Все его работы являют собой образец тончайшего письма, превосходных композиционных решений и необычного подхода к былинным и литературным сюжетам. Многие из них он брал непосредственно из самой жизни; Голиков говорил: «Выхожу на улицу, наблюдаю за природой вечера, прежде чем начать писать картину, сначала переживу, весь уйду в тот мир, который нужно изображать ...» Тематика произведений: история, фольклор, литература, сельские мотивы, современная, революционная, битвы, тройки, орнаментальные мотивы («Адам в Раю», «Бесы», «Битва», «Борис Годунов», «Гулянье в лесу», «Гармонист», «Гадание на Ивана Купалу», «Герб СССР», «Дядюшка Яков», «Жнитво», «Звери», «Игра в шашки», «Карусель», «Коромысловая башня», «Лоэнгрин», «Масленица», «Наполеон», «Орнаменты», «Пахота на волах», «Петухи», «Пожар», «Слово о полку Игореве», «Сказка о рыбаке и рыбке», «Степан Разин», «Ромео и Джульетта», «Тройка красных коней», «Хоровод» и другие). Вершиной его творчества считаются миниатюры, созданные в 1932--33 годах для подарочного издания «Слова о полку Игореве», вышедшего в 1934 году в издательстве Academia. Первоначально работу хотели поручить разным художникам, но писатель А. М. Горький настоял, чтобы все миниатюры были выполнены одним Голиковым. Эти миниатюры впоследствии переиздавались два раза, а Ивану Голикову в 1935 году было присвоено звание заслуженного деятеля искусств России. Для его работ характерна смесь реальности со сказочной фантазией: на былинной красной тройке по заснеженному пейзажу у него может ехать не сказочный персонаж, а красноармеец в будёновке. Манеру отца переняли двое его сыновей, ставших палехскими мастерами лаковой живописи -- Георгий Иванович (1920--1941) и Николай Иванович Голиковы (1924-2011). Художником стал также его внук Юрий Николаевич Голиков. Художник скончался в 1937 году после тяжелой болезни. В центре Палеха Ивану Голикову установлен памятник. Именем художника также названа одна из улиц Палеха, а в 1968 году в Палехе открылся дом-музей Голикова. Произведения И. И. Голикова хранятся в Государственном Музее Палехского Искусства, Государственном Русском Музее, Государственной Третьяковской Галерее, Всероссийском Музее Декоративно-Прикладного и Народного Искусства, Музее народного искусства НИИ художественной промышленности, Государственном историко-художественном музее-заповеднике г.

        Slovo o polku Igoreve ("The Tale of Igor's Campaign")

      Academia, Moscow 1934 - A lavish reproduction of this anonymous Russian epic poem, believed (as the academic canon now feels) to date back to the late 12th century. Beautifully illustrated by Ivan Golikov in a nod to the old "Palekh" style of painting, with 10 mounted color plates (all with their original tissue guards and decorative, chromolithographed borders) complementing the text. Elephant folio, 49 pgs., striking decorative endpapers. A bright, very-well preserved copy. Clean, tight and solidly VG+. A slight, minor amount of scuffing to the panels, otherwise sharp as could be. And internally bright and very clean, with no markings of any kind. Very impressive early 20th century tribute --in the old Russian-- to Medieval Russia and its rich, complex folklore. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Benser was a Leica employee who had gone through the full technical training in Wetzlar and later spent many years traveling with the Leica Slide Show. He recalls: "Dr. Paul Wolff had skills which I found myself envying. Without any optical aid from the Leica viewfinder in the new (Telyt) reflex housing, he could dissect the surroundings with his naked eye in the search for a suitable subject and position. He invariably picked out the perfect spot for taking the picture with the focal length he had already selected". 63pps text in German, spotting to next two, followed by those glorious prints.
