        "Girl Campers"

      New York: Woman's World Magazine, 1935. Crime novelist Patricia Highsmith's first appearance in print, a series of letters written in 1933, when she was twelve years old, from her all-girls summer camp. Young "Patsy" exhibits many of the characteristics of precocious city kids: she laments the camp's refusal to serve her coffee, requests the Sunday comics from the New York papers, longs for ice cream sodas and the movies, and exhibits a certain hard-boiled impatience with her fellow campers' demands: "Even I know that is ridiculous." Most interestingly, for the future writer of the pioneering lesbian novel The Price of Salt, is her question to her mother about skinny-dipping: "We are going in swimming 'Diana' tonight. Miss Brownie, too. . . . Diana means without any clothes on at all. Do you think it's all right to go in Diana?" In real life, Highsmith returned from summer camp to discover that her mother and stepfather were separating. She would spend the following year at her grandmother's house in Texas, far from the New York City she loved. A revealing early piece by the author of Strangers on a Train and The Talented Mr. Ripley. Staple-bound folio magazine, 26 pages. Original color pictorial wrappers, black-and-white illustrations throughout text. Highsmith's story on pages 16 and 25. Mailing address printed to top lefthand corner of upper wrapper, lightest edgewear.

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom. A triumph.

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1935 - Tall square octavo. Original brown cloth, gilt lettered spine, gilt crossed scimitar device and motto on front cover, top edge brown, untrimmed. Tipped to the front pastedown is a presentation leaf of the Philpott family (dated Christmas 1935). Very small pale stain at foot of front cover, a few light marks to binding. A very good copy. Illustrated throughout with portraits and maps. First trade edition, second impression (August 1935, one month after the first) of Lawrence's masterpiece, first issued in the unprocurable private Oxford edition of eight copies (1922) and then the sumptuous private edition of 1926. Inscribed on the front free endpaper: "To John Carter – T. W. Beaumont No. 1 Vickers Machine Gunner to T. E. Lawrence in the Arab Revolt. 9 8 86"; with, above this, the ownership inscription of John Carter. A very appealing association copy: according to his Times obituary (9 September 1991) T. W. "Tom" Beaumont (1898-1991) was "Lawrence of Arabia's number one Vickers gunner during his campaign against the Turks in Palestine in 1917-18". Beaumont's name is included in the "Nominal Roll" for the Hejaz Armoured Car Company printed in Appendix I of Seven Pillars. "In this campaign Beaumont played a notable role, not only as a machine gunner in the small force of armoured cars Lawrence had at his disposal, but also as an Arab interpreter" (ibid.). Born in Dewsbury, Yorkshire, Beaumont attempted to enlist but was rejected because he was under age. However, through an article in Motor Cycle Weekly, he found out about the Motor Machine Gun Service (later the Machine Gun Corps). This time he lied about his age and was accepted. "He soon became an expert on Vickers, Hotchkiss and Lewis guns and was already a sergeant at 18 [drafted to the Palestine theatre] Beaumont subsequently took part in railway bridge demolition operations, as well as in the many hard fought battles which took place as Lawrence's Arab forces and their stiffening of British armoured cars, captured Turkish forts on their push northwards on the right flank of Allenby's army After the war Beaumont worked in a textile firm and during the Second World War trained Air Training Corps cadets in armaments at Dewsbury He remained under the spell of Lawrence for the rest of his life, keeping in touch with him through correspondence Beaumont attended Lawrence's funeral and was present at the unveiling of Lawrence's bust in St. Paul's cathedral in 1936. On May 13, 1983, he planted a commemorative oak tree near the spot at which Lawrence had died in Dorset. He was in constant demand as an adviser on T. E. Lawrence projects, including articles, books and the David Lean film Lawrence of Arabia. However he declined to go to America to appear on cinema stages before showings of the film because he felt it was not an accurate portrayal of Lawrence" (ibid.). Lawrence's biographer Jeremy Wilson highlights the fact that it was a moment of indiscretion on Beaumont's part that led to the press getting wind of Lawrence's intention to retire from the RAF: "A few of the Englishmen who had taken part in the Arab Revolt liked to keep in contact with Lawrence, and when they wrote to him he generally made a point of replying. One of these was T. W. Beaumont, who had served as a gunner in the Hejaz Armoured Car Company". They began exchanging letters in 1931 and continued to do so up until January 1935. "None of these letters was of any consequence, but in the last, Lawrence mentioned his impending retirement. A few days after sending it, he was warned by the Air Ministry that someone from the press had been making enquiries about his movements. Then, on February 17th, the Sunday Express published an article which read: "Lawrence of Arabia Leaving the Air Force on March 1" This article alerted every newspaper to Lawrence's imminent retirement, with consequences that Lawrence cannot have begun to imagine as he worked out his last days at Bridlington Lawrence cycled away from Bridli

        BABY SHOE WITH AMELIA EARHART'S SIGNATURE (AND THAT OF THREE OTHER AVIATORS)

      1935 - This is an actual white leather baby shoe, not a book. SIGNATURES Amelia Earhart Roscoe Turner; Frank Hawks (aka "Meteor Man"); (Later-to-become Admiral) R.E.

Provenance: Inside is a hand-printed note that reads: "Sheila Jansen, Born 1921. Age between 13 and 16 when [shoe was] signed, [which, given Ms. Earhart's 1937 journey of no return, would "guesstimate" the years of signing somewhere within 1934-1937-ish. We don't know if they were signed at the same airshow (possible, but unlikely).] Liked airplanes so she went to air shows. Became a Rosie The Riveter in WWII. Favorite plane was the GB".

Seit 1926 Mitglied der Preußischen Dichterakademie, vertrat Kolbenheyer eine Philosophie des Biologismus: es gäbe fundamentale biologische Unterschiede zwischen den Völkern, und Eigentümlichkeiten z.B. der deutschen Dichtkunst seien auf biologische Grundlagen des deutschen Volkstums zurückzuführen. Er begründete eine Schule von Anhängern nach dem Vorbild der mittelalterlichen Bauhütten, gehörte bereits 1928 zum Förderkreis des Kampfbunds für deutsche Kultur. 1933 bis 1944 unterstützte er den Nationalsozialismus in zahlreichen Reden und Schriften und gehörte zu den Unterzeichnern des Aufrufs der Kulturschaffenden zur Volksbefragung am 19. August 1934 über die Zusammenlegung des Reichskanzler- und Reichspräsidentenamtes in der Person von Adolf Hitlers. 1940 trat er der NSDAP bei. Kolbenheyer wurde in der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus vielfach ausgezeichnet und 1944 von Hitler bzw. dem Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda auf eine Sonderliste - die sog. "Gottbegnadetenliste" - gesetzt, zusammen mit anderen Künstlern der Zeit wie Arno Breker, Fritz Klimsch, Georg Kolbe, Josef Thorak, Hermann Gradl, Arthur Kampf, Willy Kriegel, Werner Peiner, Leonhard Gall, Hermann Giesler, Wilhelm Kreis, Paul Schultze-Naumburg, Gerhard Hauptmann, Hans Carossa, Hanns Johst, Agnes Miegel, Ina Seidel, Hans Pfitzner, Richard Strauss und Wilhelm Furtwängler . Dadurch genoss er einige Vorrechte wie etwa die Freistellung vom Kriegsdienst. Nach 1945 wurde Kolbenheyer von den Siegermächten mit einem fünfjährigen Schreibverbot bestraft. Werner Bergengruen wertete 1946 Kolbenheyers Wirken während der NS-Zeit folgendermaßen: "In seiner großen Eitelkeit war er der Meinung, das geistige Leben Deutschlands kulminiere in seiner Person". In der Sowjetischen Besatzungszone SBZ wurden mehrere seiner Schriften auf die "Liste der auszusondernden Literatur" gesetzt (frei nach Wikipedia). - Leder-Vorzugsausgabe, Erstausgabe in sehr guter Erhaltung - Beiliegend ein Zeitungsausschnitt: "Der Dichter der bösen Idee.

Beautifully presented in a washline mount and red and gilt frame. On wove. In fine condition.Francis ("Frank") Owen Salisbury (1874 ? 1962) was an English artist who specialised in portraits, large canvases of historical and ceremonial events, stained glass and book illustration. In his heyday he made a fortune on both sides of the Atlantic and was known as ?Britain?s Painter Laureate? His art was steadfastly conservative and he was a vitriolic critic of Modern Art ? particularly of his contemporaries Picasso, Chagall and Mondrian. He was born in Harpenden, the son of a plumber and glazier, and was apprenticed to his brother in a stained-glass workshop in St Albans before winning a scholarship to the *Royal Academy, London, where he studied 1892?7. A scholarship to visit Italy in 1896 and his admiration for Renaissance frescos helped establish his taste for large scenes of pageantry. His works are in various notable collections including the Royal Airforce Museum, the National Museum of Wales and the Parliamentary Art Collection.For more information please click here.

        Stratosphere and Rocket Flight (Aeronautics): a Popular Handbook on Space Flight for the Future

      Sir Isaac Pitman, London 1935 - SUPERB PROVENANCE! From the library of the first American to takeoff with rocket-assisted flight, and who also made the first flight in the United States powered by rocket power alone! Signed and inscribed on front free endpaper: "Lieut. Homer A. Boushey Jr. 91st Observation Squadron Fort Lewis, Wash. December 1936". This was shortly after Boushey was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross, with the citation reading as follows: "The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 2, 1926, takes pleasure in presenting the Distinguished Flying Cross to Second Lieutenant (Air Corps) Homer A. Boushey, Jr., U.S. Army Air Corps, for heroism and extraordinary achievement while participating in an aerial flight on 5 October 1936, near Fort Lewis, Washington. While descending from an altitude performance flight in a new type airplane, a structural failure in the aircraft resulted in the loss of both ailerons, thereby causing the airplane to go out of control temporarily. After a descent of about 2,000 feet, Lieutenant Boushey, the pilot, motioned to his mechanic to jump and then, by skillful use of the remaining controls and at the risk of his life, brought the disabled airplane to a safe landing. The courage, sound judgment, and skill displayed by Lieutenant Boushey resulted in great monetary savings to the Government and made possible an engineering study of the structural failure of this new type airplane." Nice copy in the original blue-gray cloth stamped in black (spine sunned, some wear to boards). Despite his profound accomplishments as a pilot, his real contribution to the Air Force and the history of flight was using his Stanford engineering degree on the technical side. According to his official Air Force biography: " In 1943 General Boushey became the Air Corps' first commander of a jet organization when the 412th Fighter Group was organized on a confidential status at Muroc, Calif. In 1947 General Boushey led the first over-water flight of jet fighter aircraft when one squadron of P-80 aircraft was transferred from the Philippines to Okinawa. General Boushey graduated from the First Command Course, Fort Leavenworth, Kan., in 1946 and graduated from the Industrial College in 1949. In 1952 he was assigned to the Wright Air Development Center where he held the positions of chief, equipment laboratory; director of weapon systems; chief of staff; and vice commander. Later he was assigned to ARDC, Baltimore as assistant deputy commander for research and development, and in July 1957 he was designated deputy director of research and development, Headquarters U.S. Air Force, Washington, D.C. On July 15, 1958 Headquarters U.S. Air Force established the Directorate of Advanced Technology under the Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff, Development. General Boushey was appointed the first director of the office of advanced technology." Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]
