After President Roosevelt passed the Emergency Relief Appropriation Act in 1935, Harriet Pettibone Clinton, the District Director of the Women's Division of the WPA in Milwaukee County, was determined to create a program to employ the large numbers of unskilled and unemployed women. Whereas women were usually offered lower-paying gender-specific jobs such as childcare and clerical work, Clinton wanted to employ women to make handicrafts. She contacted a colleague, art teacher Elsa Ulbricht of Milwaukee State Teacher's College, and together they created the Milwaukee WPA Handicraft Project. The project's aim was "to make by hand household articles of wood, paper, yarn and cloth. The objects made will be distributed to relief families, nursery schools serving relief families and publicly owned institutions." The blockprinting division issued these portfolios of textiles as samples to advertise the work they were capable of doing. From 1935 to 1942, the MHP employed over 5,000 women and minorities, breaking important gender and color barriers and bringing notoriety to Milwaukee.

        A Collection of Twelve Photographs Documenting the 1935 Gordon Bennett Cup Gas Balloon Racing in Warsaw

      [Poland] 1935 - Original, vintage photographs. In various sizes. (1×) 83 × 54 mm, (5×) 91 × 61 mm, (1×) 128 × 88 mm, (3×) 178 × 129 mm, (2×) 238 × 165 mm. The Gordon Bennett Cup (Coupe Aéronautique Gordon Bennett) is the oldest gas balloon race, created by James Gordon Bennett Jr, the American press baron and sponsor of motor racing and sport. With several interruptions, it is held annually since 1906. The starting point of the 1935 race was Warsaw (Poland) and the winner of the Cup was the Polish crew, Zbigniew Burzy?ski, and W?adys?aw Wysocki, with the balloon SP-AMY Polonia II. They remained airborne for almost 58 hours while piloted their balloon 1,650 kilometers from Warsaw to Tishkino near Stalingrad (today: Volgograd, Russia). With this flight, they also beat world records in length and time frame. The two largest images show the lift off the winner, SP-AMY Polonia II, and US Navy, the winner of the 1932 cup. The three less large sized photos are labelled in Polish: "General view of the inflation of the balloons", with SP-ADS Ko?ciuszko, the winner balloon of the preceding cup, that finished in fifth place this race; "Lift off the balloon Warszawa. Flew 1,280 kilometers in 36 hours, and finished in second place."; "Lift off balloon Belgica, that finished in third place" flew 1,455 kilometers in about 48 hours. The 128 × 88 mm sized image shows a ceremony related to the flag of Nazi Germany in front of the inflated balloon. The smaller images document the inflation and the lift off other balloons. Zürich III, Torun and one of the German balloons, by the swastika on its side, are recognizable. A scarce and interesting documentation of the early era of the Coupe Aéronautique Gordon Bennett, one of the most prestigious events in aviation. The 5 larger format images with the photographer, W?adys?aw Toczy?owski's stamp on the verso, the three smaller sized of them are labelled in pencil. The larger images are in fine condition, some of the small sized (91 × 61 mm) are slightly worn, overall in good, very good condition. Original, vintage photographs. In various sizes.

      1935. Signed. NAM, Jacques Lehmann and COLETTE, (Sidonie-Gabrielle). Chats. Paris: Chez l'Artiste Jacques Nam, circa 1935-38. Large original portfolio (18 by 21 inches) with printed label, containing six loose folio gatherings, five original aquatints (as issued), and one original large (17-1/2 by 12-1/2 inches) signed gouache painting, laid in. $28,000.Limited first edition of this portfolio of five wonderful large color lithographic portraits of cats, each signed and numbered by Jacques Nam, accompanied by amusing commentaries by Colette, this copy one of only 25 issued on Imperial Japon paper with multiple original watercolors of cats in the margins of each leaf of text, initialed by Nam, as well as a lovely original charcoal and watercolor drawing on the half title inscribed and signed by Nam, ""A Lucien Jonas, en témoignage de ma ___ amitie, Jacques Nam"" [For Lucien Jonas, a token of my friendship]. This copy additionally with a splendid large (17-1/2 by 12-1/2 inches) original gouache watercolor painting inscribed and signed by the artist laid in, not called for on the limitation leaf.""Time spent with cats is never wasted"" (Colette). Jacques Nam was known primarily for his paintings and illustrations of animal subjects, mostly cats, which found their ways into the Salon d'Automne and the National Gallery of Beaux Arts. During the early 20th century, Nam provided illustrations for such French magazines as La Vie Parisienne and Le Petit Journal Illustré de la Jeunesse. Colette's works ""express a sensibility shaped by the style of the belle époque and informed by a sensual responsiveness to the life of nature and the world of childhood"" (Drabble, 213). No one who is fond of cats can afford to miss her descriptions of ""Le Siamois,"" ""Simplette,"" and ""Fastagette."" This is copy number 27; the 25 copies in this limitation are numbered 6-30, from a total edition of 380 copies. Text in French. Evidence of mounting to verso of gouache painting, image fine.

        Men and Memories: A History of the Arts 1872-1922

      1935. Signed. ROTHENSTEIN, William. Men and Memories. A History of the Arts 1872-1922. New York: Tudor, circa 1935. Thick octavo, original black cloth, original dust jacket. $2800.First single-volume edition of RothensteinÂ’s two-volume memoir, from the library of legendary theatrical patriarch John Barrymore, with his striking bookplate (of his own design) and featuring a bold caricature drawn by Barrymore on the front free endpaper, with his inscription “John Barrymore-Tower Rd” above the sketch and his initials “J.B.” beneath.British painter William Rothenstein is best known for creating “one of the greatest series of contemporary portraitsÂ… in the history of art” (DNB)-many of which are seen here in this volumeÂ’s 96 illustrations, including images of Henry James, W.B. Yeats, Joseph Conrad, T.E. Lawrence and Einstein. This is the first single-volume work of RothensteinÂ’s memoirs to combine the two separately published editions of 1931-2. From the library of actor John Barrymore, legendary patriarch of AmericaÂ’s greatest acting family, “known for his exuberant temperament” and classic features that earned him the nickname “The Profile.” Within is BarrymoreÂ’s impressive bookplate, based on his own design, and his caricature of a Caliban-like figure, sketched by Barrymore on the front free endpaper. As a young man Barrymore had tried to “scorn his heritage in the theatre and hoped to become a painterÂ… He had dreamed of bringing the world to his feet executing serious and even macabre masterpieces, in the style of Gustave Doré.” After studying in Paris and New York, Barrymore worked as a cartoonist for the New York Telegraph and an illustrator for Hearst editorials, but in time he “bowed to his destinyÂ… [and] the theatre won” (New York Times). The flamboyant and often self-deprecating actor continued to make sketches throughout his life, often portraits of theatrical characters-such as this. BarrymoreÂ’s notation of “Tower Rd” above the sketch refers to his estate in Hollywood, purchased by him in 1927. Bookseller ticket.Text fine, lightest edge-wear to near-fine book; some chipping, soiling to very good dust jacket.

Vintage gelatin silver print (8 by 10 inches), signed on the recto; matted and framed, entire piece measures 15 by 18 inches. $7800.Vintage gelatin silver photographic print of Amelia Earhart standing in front of her Lockheed Vega airplane, signed by her.Amelia Earhart recorded a number of firsts in her extraordinary aviation career: she was the first person, man or woman, to fly solo from Hawaii to the U.S. mainland, Honolulu to Oakland. She was the first woman to fly the Atlantic in a plane (1928); the second person, and the first woman, to fly solo across the Atlantic (1932); and the first woman to fly solo across the continental U.S. This photograph of Earhart standing in front of her Lockheed Vega airplane was taken in 1935 while her plane was being repaired at Lockheed Aircraft. Officials at Lockheed asked Earhart, to pose for some publicity photographs. Earhart agreed, and Lockheed assigned Joe Washburn, their best photographer, to take the pictures, which have become iconic: one was used on the Amelia Earhart stamp issued by the U.S. Postal Service. Tiny closed tear along left side of photograph. Fine condition.

        Dojmy z SSSR [Impressions of the USSR]

      Brno: Exod, 1935. Third edition. Hardcover. SIGNED. 165pp. Octavo [22.5 cm] in light brown cloth. Boards are crisp and unworn, with a tiny red smudge to front board. This appears to be a rebound copy of the paperback original, with original wraps present within (French flaps apparently trimmed off). It differs from the paperback in that the top edge is dyed black, the glassine sheets protecting the illustrations are bound in, not laid in, and the textblock has been trimmed at foot by a depth of about 1 cm. Illustrated with 15 woodcuts by the author. Signed by Bocho áková-Dittrichová in pencil on title page. From an edition of 200 copies.An illustrated account of the author's travels to Leningrad, St. Petersburg, Moskow, Kharkiv, Kiev, and Kiev. Bocho áková-Dittrichová also devotes a chapter each to a collective farm and the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station.Helena Bocho áková-Dittrichová (1894-1980) was the first female wordless novelist, and the only woman to work in this medium during its heyday. She was born in the Moravian region of what is now the Czech Republic and spent most of her life in Brno, the Moravian capital. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and in 1923 received a government scholarship to study printmaking in Paris. Bocho áková-Dittrichová's unpublished wordless novel Malí ka Na Cestách [The Artist on Her Journey] recounts this period in her life. In Paris, she first encountered the wordless novels of Flemish artist Franz Masereel, the originator of the form, and was inspired to create her own. Over the course of her long career, Bocho áková-Dittrichová published several wordless novels, along with travelogues and historical works. She also worked as a printmaker and illustrator, and was highly regarded in her native land, though largely unknown elsewhere. This changed in 2014, when the National Museum of Women in the Arts held an exhibition of her work entitled "The First Woman Graphic Novelist: Helena Bocho áková-Dittrichová," and this important artist finally began to gain global recognition. Her work, however, is still not widely available.

In scarce publisher’s dust jacket and slipcase.Even though ""Seven Pillars is remarkably accurate as a military history,"" its blending of epic heroic adventure, psychological insight, and spiritual transformation make it the literary treasure that Lawrence intended it to be, deserving Winston Churchill's praise as one of ""the greatest books ever written in the English language"" (Wilson 55). ""We were a self-centered army,"" Lawrence writes, ""without parade or gesture, devoted to freedom… [with] a purpose so ravenous that it devoured all our strength, a hope so transcendent that our earlier ambitions faded in its glare."" Illustrated with tissue-guarded photographic plates and portraits from sketches, facsimile pages from Lawrence texts and manuscripts, in-text line drawings, and folding maps. Preceded only by the very rare private printing of 1926 and the limited English edition of 1935. Duval 14. O'Brien A053.

        King Jasper. WITH: Autograph Letter signed

      1935. First Edition . Signed. (FROST, Robert) ROBINSON, Edwin Arlington. King Jasper. A Poem by Edwin Arlington Robinson. WITH: FROST, Robert. Autograph letter signed. New York: Macmillan, 1935. Octavo, original half black cloth, green cloth covers, original glassine, original slipcase with printed paper label. $5000.Limited first edition of Arlington’s final narrative poem, number 64 of only 250 copies, with an Introduction by Robert Frost. This copy signed by Frost on the final page of his Introduction, and further inscribed by him, “For my friend James Patrick J. Murphy, Coconut Grove Florida, February 12, 1936.” Accompanied as well by an autograph letter signed by Frost to Murphy, inviting him to send his copy of this book to Frost for him to sign: “I shall be glad to write my name in it for you.”Pulitzer Prize-winning American poet Edwin Robinson was “the most highly regarded and widely read poet of his generation” (Hamilton, 456). “The first major American poet of the 20th century, [he was] unique in that he devoted his life to poetry and willingly paid the price in poverty” (ANB). This volume is also prized for Frost’s perceptive and elegiac Introduction, in which he praises Robinson and mourns his passing, as Robinson died mere hours after he finished revising the galley proofs of this work. “Robinson has gone to his place in American literature and left his human place among us vacant.” This essay marks Frost’s beginning in literary criticism. In addition to being a poignant tribute to Robinson, it is also a distancing of Frost’s own poetry from the Modernist experiments in imagism and the politically influenced experiments in propaganda.The laid-in autograph letter signed by Frost is dated February 1, 1936, just a few days before the February 12 inscription in the book. Following the address and date the letter reads: “Dear Mr. Murphy: If you hurry and send your King Jasper to me it should easily reach me at the above address before I leave for Cambridge Mass on February 15th. I shall be glad to write my name in it for you. And here enclosed is an item of mine you may care to have. Any help I can give you in collecting please let me know. Sincerely yours, Robert Frost.” The envelope, addressed to Murphy in Frost’s hand, is also present. In addition, a typed letter (not signed) from Frost to Murphy from 1960 is included, in which an 86-year-old Frost apologizes to Murphy for not being able to see him during a recent visit to Bryn Mawr. He writes, “I have always wondered about you and your interest in my books. I believe I have here in Brewster Street some of your collection I have yet to put my hand to. I must tend to it when I get back from my next excursion. Would it be too much to ask you to sort of catalogue what you already have? I try to take care of my collectors sooner or later.”Though they never met, Frost and recipient James P.J. Murphy, an aspiring poet and avid collector, corresponded for nearly a quarter of a century. “Murphy was a shy man with a passion for literature and fine printing. He found both in Frost’s books. The poet autographed Murphy’s copies of his works—often after considerable delay—and sent him his special Christmas cards” (Burch, “Three Unpublished Letters of Robert Frost to James P.J. Murphy,” in ANQ, 13:2, 35-40). Unpublished letters between the two—such as the two present letters, one signed—show Frost giving the young poet sound advice on getting his poems published, and promising to get around to autographing copies of his works that Murphy had sent to him for that purpose. Fine condition.

Cobb served in France as an enlistee in the Canadian Army, and his novel about the execution of three French soldiers for "cowardice" in order to cover up the mistakes of their commanding general is one of the most widely known anti- war novels of the pre-WWII years. The 1957 film adaptation by Stanley Kubrick did much to remind the post-war public of its virtues,

        Innocence and Design.

      London: Macmillan & Co., Ltd. 1935 - Octavo. Original green cloth, elaborate textured decoration to boards in blind, titles to spine gilt. With the pictorial dust ajcket. A lovely copy in the typically sunned and little rubbed dust jacket with a single small internal repair. Illustrated throughout by Sykes. First edition, sole impression. A spectacular pseudonymous, presentation copy, inscribed and with an original presentation ink drawing, by Sykes, "To my great new friend Rex Whistler, Richard Waughburton 5th July 1935". Beneath this inscription is an drawing in which two figures stting hunched over a writing table, quills in hands, one pointing up to the associated inscription. Innocence and Design was a notorious roman a clef jointly written by Sykes and Byron. It was Byron's only full-length work of fiction. A presentation to such a luminary as the great Rex Whistler, especially given the nature and subject of this novel, is compelling indeed. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Two Typed Letters, Signed, an Autograph Letter, Signed, and Associated Manuscript and Printed Items]

      Ausable Forks, NY, 1935. Three pages, on. three quarto sheets of Kent's letterhead, signed variously, "R.K.", "Rockwell" and" Rockwell Kent." Folded for mailing, generally very good, with envelopes. Kent writes to Hazel Kapstein (later Harwell), assistant to publisher Thorne Donnelley of Reuben R. Donnelly Corp. and the Lakeside Press, publisher in 1930 of Kent's illustrated edition of MOBY DICK). asking her to return a book Kent left when he last visited Donnelley's house; anticipating her wedding which was apparently to be held at the Kents' home; writing concerning a mutual friend in the hospital; explaining "Some days ago a box of books arrived from the Lakeside Press. I inscribed them all ... but, unfortunately, didn't think of little pictures for your and Thorne's copies. If I had them here now I'd repair the oversight ... I had completely forgotten about the bookplate ... I'll try to do it very soon ..."; asking after some business details and requesting names and addresses for a mailing, and sending thanks for "... getting so exhilarated that you could make our dinner last as long as possible without missing the train, for being even more charming than efficient, for promising to be married from our house, and for having done every grand and little service that came within your long reach to make our visit to Chicago care free...." Together with a typed letter signed, one page, on her husband's printed "tree" woodcut letterhead, from Frances Kent, also to Hazel Kapstein, reiterating her husband's request for assistance in having his book returned and sending personal greetings, and a typed, one-page post-script signed "Dickie" from Kent's son. Also included in the lot are the following ephemeral items: [a] Kent's printed mailing label featuring his "tree" woodcut design and printed return address, with Hazel Kapstein's address typed in the mailing panel; bearing the ink stamp of receipt, as above; mounted to another sheet (presumably the remains of the mailing envelope; neatly trimmed); [b] a large blue printed mailing label featuring a landscape by Kent and incorporating his return address and the heading "Rockwellkentiana", with Hazel Harwell's information typed in the address field and a postmark; on a portion of a large blue envelope covered in stamps and postmarks and a printed label (featuring an angel winking) which reads: "Postmaster: This package may be opened for inspection"; [c] a printed booklabel, mailing label or announcement card, bearing the printed return address of R.R. Donnelley & Sons Co., The Lakeside Press, bordered by what appears to be a silver and black image by Kent of a warrior leaning on a staff or masthead beneath a starlit sky; [d] one of Kent's bookplates, designed for Frank H. Whitmore, featuring a three-masted ship on the open sea, enclosed in a circle, with Kent's initials in the lower left-hand side of the image; and [e] an unused copy of a return reservation postcard addressed to Mr. Kittredge at The Lakeside Press, for a publicity event, indicating a reply to "your invitation to dinner and to meet Mr. Rockwell Kent on Friday evening, December fifth. Please reserve a place for me." With the signature and date lines left blank.

        Twenty Poems by Rupert Brooke.

      London: Sidgwick & Jackson, Ltd, 1935. Frist edition, second printing in the same month as the first. Profile portrait of Brooke on the wrappers which are bound in. 12mo, bound by William Matthews, with his stamp on the lower turn-in, full green morocco with an art deco style monogram of the artist with gilt line going over the two sides and the spine, spine with raised bands with gilt ruling in the compartments. Spine and top edge faded to brown with a little rubbing to the spine but a great example of a 1930s Matthews binding. William Matthews was one of the most important early twentieth century British binders who was known for his exquisite binding work and his huge influence as a teacher of binding. He won a scholarship to the Central School of Arts & Crafts at the age of 13 and in 1914 was apprenticed to W.T. Morrell as a finisher. The war interrupted his studies but he returned in 1919 to finish his apprenticeship and begin his long teaching career at the Central.

        Dojmy z SSSR [Impressions of the USSR]

      Exod [1935], Brno - 136pp. Sextodecimo in wraps. Short tear to spine at top, 1/2" tear to front hinge at foot creasing to rear wrap and to front wrap corners; interior is clean and tight. Illustrated with 9 drawings by the author. Curiously, while this copy has one of the woodcuts from the original edition as its cover illustration, the nine illustrations within are pen-and-ink drawings, not woodcuts. The text appears to have been printed from the same type as the third edition, although it does not follow the same pagination. An illustrated account of the author's travels to Leningrad, St. Petersburg, Moskow, Kharkiv, Kiev, and Kiev. Bocho áková-Dittrichová also devotes a chapter each to a collective farm and the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station.Helena Bocho áková-Dittrichová (1894-1980) was the first female wordless novelist, and the only woman to work in this medium during its heyday. She was born in the Moravian region of what is now the Czech Republic and spent most of her life in Brno, the Moravian capital. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and in 1923 received a government scholarship to study printmaking in Paris. Bocho áková-Dittrichová's unpublished wordless novel Malí ka Na Cestách [The Artist on Her Journey] recounts this period in her life. In Paris, she first encountered the wordless novels of Flemish artist Franz Masereel, the originator of the form, and was inspired to create her own. Over the course of her long career, Bocho áková-Dittrichová published several wordless novels, along with travelogues and historical works. She also worked as a printmaker and illustrator, and was highly regarded in her native land, though largely unknown elsewhere. This changed in 2014, when the National Museum of Women in the Arts held an exhibition of her work entitled "The First Woman Graphic Novelist: Helena Bocho áková-Dittrichová," and this important artist finally began to gain global recognition. Her work, however, is still not widely available. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      Paris, Ané, 1935-1965. 7 Bde. 4to. Ältere, einfache Leinenbände. Kollation: (I: Abamita-Azzon-1935) 1.600 Sp.; (II: Baccalauréat-Cathedraticum-1937) 1.448 Sp.; (III: Cause-Condis-1942) 1.528 Sp.; (IV: Condition-Droits Acquis-1949) 1.528 Sp.; (V: Duacensis (collectio)-Intéret et Usure-1953) 1.528 Sp.; (VI: Interférences-Pittoni-1957) 1.522 Sp.; (VII: Placentin-Zype, van den-1965) 1.688 Sp. Im Jahre 1927 wurde die erste Lieferung dieses großartigen Lexikon für die Kanonistik ausgeliefert, der Herausgeber zu dieser Zeit war A. Amanieu, Professor für kanonisches Recht an der Universität Lille. In der Verlagsanzeige von 1927 wurden drei Hauptkriterien vorgestellt: 1. Die gesamte kanonistische Terminologie soll erfasst, erläutert und deren historische Entwicklung behandelt werden, dies gilt für allgemein juristische Begriffe innerhalb der Kanonistik wie typisch kanonistische. 2. Weiterhin werden die Institutionen und auch die Mittel der Kirche erfasst, untersucht und vorgestellt, die die Kirche zur Schaffung, Verbreitung und auch Veränderung ihrer Kanonistik benutzt. Dies wird auch im historischen Kontext unternommen. 3. Die Träger der Kanonistik, vor allem die mit der Kanonistk beschäftgten Juristen werden biographisch vorgestellt und mit entspre4chenden apparatus criticus erfasst. Der erste Band beispielsweise beginnt gleich mit dem berühmten Abbas antiquus, einem Kanonisten des 13. Jahrhunderts, der oft mit Abbas Panormitanus, einem Kanonisten des 14. Jahrhundts verwechselt wird. Erfasst werden nicht nur Kanonisten, sondn auch alle Legisten, die mit dem kanonischen Recht in Berührung gekommen sind, etwa Andreas Alciat (1492-1550), dem berühmten Gründer der humanistischen Jurisprudenz, der vereinzelt, eher selten auch kleinere Kommentare zum Corpus iuris canonici verfasst hat. Auch aus dem protestantischen Raum sind Juristen aufgenommen und vorgestellt, die letzte Spalte des siebenten (letzten) Bandes zeigt den internationalen Zuschnitt des Lexikons, das in der Kanonistk (wie in der Legistik) durch die europäische Rezeption fast selbstverständlich ist: Thomas Zerola, italienischer Jurist (1548-1603), Gaspard Ziegler, deutscher Jurist aus Wittenberg (1621-1690), Henricus Zoesius, holländischer Jurist aus Löwen (gest. 1627) und Franciscus van den Zypaeus, französischer Jurist (1580-1650).

        Blandings Castle

      312 pages with deckle fore edge. Small octavo (7 3/4" x 5 1/2") bound in original publisher's green cloth with dark green lettering to spine and pictorial emblem to front cover corner in pictorial jacket. ((Jasen: 53a; McIlvaine: pages 68-69) First American edition.Blandings Castle and Elsewhere is a collection of short stories by P. G. Wodehouse. It was first published in the United Kingdom on 12 April 1935 by Herbert Jenkins, London, and, as Blandings Castle, in the United States on 20 September 1935 by Doubleday Doran, New York. All the stories had previously appeared in Strand Magazine (UK) and all except the last in various US magazines. The first six stories all take place at the book's namesake Blandings Castle; they are set some time between the events of Leave it to Psmith (1923) and those of Summer Lightning (1929). The seventh concerns Bobbie Wickham, an acquaintance and sometime fiancee of Bertie Wooster, and the last five are narrated by Mr Mulliner. The master of Blandings is, nominally at least, Lord Emsworth. Clarence, the ninth Earl, is an amiably absent-minded old chap, who is charming because of his slow, relaxed lifestyle and the simple obsessions that make him oblivious to the absurd melodrama of his family, namely his home, gardens, pumpkins, and his champion pig, Empress of Blandings. He is never happier than when pottering about the grounds on a fine sunny day. Lord Emsworth's ten sisters (all of whom look like the "daughter of a hundred earls", except for Hermione, who looks like a cook), his brother Galahad ("Gally"), his daughter Mildred, his sons Freddie and George, and his numerous nieces, nephews, and in-laws inhabit the castle from time to time. For the Threepwood family, and their friends, the castle is forever available for indefinite residence, and is occasionally used as a temporary prison—known as "Devil's Island" or "The Bastille"—for love-struck young men and ladies to calm down. Blandings Castle, lying in the picturesque Vale of Blandings, Shropshire, England, is two miles from the town of Market Blandings, home to at least nine pubs, most notably the Emsworth Arms. The castle is a noble pile, of Early Tudor building ("its history is recorded in England's history books and Viollet-le-Duc has written of its architecture", according to Something Fresh). One of England's largest stately homes, it dominates the surrounding country, standing on a knoll of rising ground at the southern end of the celebrated Vale of Blandings; the Severn gleams in the distance. From its noble battlements, the Wrekin can be seen. The house has numerous guest rooms, many of which haven't been used since Queen Elizabeth roamed the country. Of those still in use, the Garden Room is the finest, usually given to the most prestigious guest; it has a balcony outside its French windows, which can be easily accessed via a handy drainpipe. The main library has a smaller library leading off it, and windows overlooking some flowerbeds; it is here that Lord Emsworth is often to be found on wet days, his nose deep in an improving tome of country lore, his favorite being Whiffle on The Care of the Pig.Condition:Small split at spine head, corners lightly rubbed. Jacket spine ends lightly chipped, some closed edge tears, closed tear at front head hinge with a crease, price clipped else a better than very good copy in a very good jacket.

        The Lords of Creation

      New York and London: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1935. First edition (stated) with I-K below statement. Hardcover. VG A solid clean copy, previous owner's name inked on inside of front cover, no other marks, top and bottom of spine solid with no wear or tears. No surprises. Red cloth with embossed seal in lower right ront cover, embossed title upon spine. xii, 483 pp., (3) Illustrated by 16 b&w photographs on 8 plates. The previous owner of this book was Harry L. Wells, of Evanston, IL. Wells was an Alumnus of Northwestern University and served it in varying capacities, including being appointed Business Manager in 1934. He has signed the book with the address of 1936 Sheridan Road. A pleasant surprise to find this as such a sturdy, clean and desirable example of this scarce title. Quite suitable for gift giving though the spine lettering is somewhat faded. Preface, 14 chapters, appendix and index. A scarce and classic financial history of US (1890-1929) written at the height of the Great Depression. Allen was an historian educated at Groton and Harvard, as well as Associate Editor of Harpers. As stated elsewhere: Frederick Lewis Allen's insightful financial history of the United States-from the late 1800s through the stock market collapse of 1929-remains a seminal work on what brought on America's worst economic disaster: the Great Depression. In the decades following the Civil War, America entered an era of unprecedented corporate expansion, with ultimate financial power in the hands of a few wealthy industrialists who exploited the capitalist system for everything it was worth. The Rockefellers, Fords, Morgans, and Vanderbilts were the "lords of creation" who, along with like-minded magnates, controlled the economic destiny of the country, unrestrained by regulations or moral imperatives. Through a combination of foresight, ingenuity, ruthlessness, and greed, America's giants of industry remolded the US economy in their own preferred image. In so doing, they established their absolute power and authority, ensuring that they-and they alone-would control the means of production, transportation, energy, and commerce-thereby setting the stage for the most devastating global financial collapse in history. As Gretchen Morgenson thoughtfully states in her introduction, "It is not immediately clear why the frequency and severity of financial scandals is increasing in the United States. What is clear is that we need to understand the origins of these disasters, as well as the policies and people that bring them on. . . . While distant actions may seem unrelated to current events, rereading about the past almost always provides surprising insights into the present." The Lords of Creation, first published in the midst of the Great Depression, when the financial catastrophe was still painfully fresh, is a fascinating story of bankers, railroad tycoons, steel magnates, speculators, scoundrels, and robber barons. It is a tale of innovation and shocking exploitation-and a sobering reminder that history can indeed repeat itself.
