        The Cave at Altamira at Santillana del Mar, Spain

      Madrid: Tipografia de Archivos. 1935. An elaborate volume on the prehistoric cave paintings of Altamira, updating a 1906 edition by Breuil and Emile Cartailhac. Large quarto with 52 plates, both black & white photographs and full color plates reproducing Breuil's original drawings of the animals in the Altamira frescoes. A number of the color plates are double pages; all are protected with tissue guards. The caves at Altamira were discovered in the 1870s and were the first caves to be found that contained prehistoric artworks. Their Spanish discoverers were ridiculed for claiming that the paintings belonged to people of the Upper Paleolithic era, and it wasn't until decades later, after numerous other such caves had been found around Europe, that this became a generally recognized truth. Breuil, a French archeologist, visited the site and made drawings of a number of the animals depicted on the cave walls for the 1906 monograph -- notably in particular a species of bison that had been extinct in Spain for thousands of years; three decades later he updated and expanded his work, taking advantage of increased access to the cave and newly available lighting. The present volume has more plates than the earlier one, and all of the earlier images have been updated and improved. The discovery of the caves at Altamira was one of the most significant archeological discoveries of the 19th century, changing forever our understanding of our human forebears. This volume was produced during the Spanish Second Republic, the relatively brief period of liberal democracy preceding the Spanish Civil War and the subsequent forty years of fascist rule. A beautiful book, three quarter bound in leather and attractively and elaborately printed. . First Edition. Hardcover.

The Palestine Exploration Fund is a British society founded in 1865,and still functioning today. Its initial object was to carry out surveys of the topography and ethnography of Ottoman Palestinewith a remit that fell somewhere between an expeditionary survey and military intelligence gathering. The beginnings of the Palestine Exploration Fund are rooted in a literary society founded by British Consul James Finn and his wife Elizabeth. On 22 June 1865, a group of Biblical archaeologists and clergymen financed the fund, with an initial fund of only 300. The most notable of the founders were Arthur P. Stanley, the Dean of Westminster, and George Grove, who later founded the Royal College of Music and was responsible for Grove's Dictionary of Music. Its founders established the Fund for the purpose of investigating the Archaeology, Geography, manners, customs and culture, Geology and Natural History of the Holy Land. The Palestine Exploration Fund conducted many early excavations of biblical and post biblical sites around the Levant, as well as studies involving natural history, anthropology, history and geography. They were also involved in the foundation of the British School of Archaeology in Jerusalem in 1919.

        ULYSSES

      New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935. ONE OF 1,500 COPIES, OURS ONE OF 250 SIGNED BY BOTH JOYCE AND MATISSE (this is copy #1,179). 305 x 241 mm (12 x 9 1/2"). xv, [iii], 363, [3] pp. Introduction by Stuart Gilbert. Publisher's original brown buckram, embossed in gilt and titled on front cover and on flat spine, the decorations from a design by LeRoy H. Appleton. Housed in a superb modern morocco folding box, modelled and onlaid to replicate Appleton's design on the upper cover in blue, tan, and beige morocco. (Without the original cardboard slipcase.) WITH 26 ILLUSTRATIONS BY HENRI MATISSE, depicting the Calypso, Aeolus, Cyclops, Nausicaa, Circe, and Ithaca episodes from Homer's "Odyssey." Slocum & Cahoon A-22; Quarto-Millenary 71; "The Artist and the Book" 197. AN IMMACULATE COPY. This is a remarkably well-preserved copy of the only book illustrated by Matisse to be published in America, and one of the great collaborations of artist and author in the annals of 20th century private press publication. In the opinion of art publisher Monroe Wheeler, "it was a great idea to bring [Joyce and Matisse] together" since they were "celebrities of the same generation, of similar virtuosity." Newman says that this work and the Limited Editions Club "Lysistrata" "stand as landmarks in the history of the illustrated book," and the "Ulysses" is almost certainly the most famous work among LEC publications designed by George Macy. Matisse's illustrations are curious in that they were based not on "Ulysses," a work the artist had not read when he was asked to make etchings for the text, but on Homer's "Odyssey," from which Joyce's book obviously derives. "Following Matisse's wishes, the preparatory studies were grouped in front of each corresponding print, allowing the viewer to see the progression from sketch to finished composition." (Grolier Club Exhibition) Joyce was furious when he learned that Matisse had chosen to illustrate scenes from Homer's "Odyssey," rather than from Joyce's novel, with which he remained unfamiliar. As a consequence, he stopped signing the present Limited Editions Club printing in a fit of pique, after affixing his signature to 250 copies (whereas Matisse signed them all). Although the LEC edition of "Ulysses" is far from a rare book in the marketplace, it is becoming more difficult to find in very fine condition (as here). Our copy has the bonus of a remarkable case created by John and Jack Papuchyan of H & H Bindery in Glendale, CA. The brothers learned the craft from their grandfather (who studied in France in the first half of the 20th century), then worked for the bindery at Heritage Bookshop in Los Angeles before starting their own business in 1994. Their boxes are always handsome and well crafted, but the present extraordinary sculpted case is exceptional.

        ULYSSES ... WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY STUART GILBERT AND ILLUSTRATIONS BY HENRI MATISSE

      New York: The Limited Editions Club, 1935.. Quarto. Cloth, decorated in gilt and blind. Illustrated with six original etchings, accompanied by reproductions of the preliminary sketches. Trace of slight darkening along endsheet gutters, otherwise a fine, bright copy, without foxing to the etchings, in somewhat darkened slipcase with bruises at tips and cracks at joints of top panel. Modern half morocco and cloth folding clamshell case. First American printing of the corrected Odyssey Press text. From an edition of 1500 numbered copies, signed by Matisse, this is one of only 250 copies signed as well by Joyce. A textually significant edition, whatever the shortcomings of its design (by George Macy) and the inappropriateness of the illustrations (Matisse illustrated Homer rather than Joyce, a factor allegedly contributing to Joyce's reluctance to sign the entire edition). "One of the very few American livres de peintres issued before World War II. According to George Macy, who undertook this only American publication of Matisse's illustrations, he asked the artist how many etchings the latter could provide for five thousand dollars. The artist chose to take six subjects from Homer's Odyssey. The preparatory drawings reproduced with the soft-ground etchings (Matisse's only use of this medium) record the evolution of the figures from vigorous sketches to closely knit, if less spontaneous, compositions" - Artist & The Book.

        Ulysses

      New York: The Limited Editions Club,, 1935. With an Introduction by Stuart Gilbert and Illustrations by Henri Matisse. Quarto. Original brown cloth, titles to spine and pictorial design to upper board gilt, red speckled top-stain. With the publisher's card slipcase. 21 monochrome illustrations on a variety of coloured paper of different sizes. Endpapers partially tanned, front hinge a little weak, and spine ever so slightly dulled. Still an excellent copy. First Matisse edition. One of a limited edition of 1500 numbered copies (no. 693) signed by Matisse on the limitation leaf. Includes etchings depicting the Calypso, Aeolus, Cyclops, Nausicaa, Circe and Ithaca episodes. With an introduction by Stuart Gilbert, who at Joyce's request edited the Odyssey Press edition of this novel, generally considered the most authoritative text of the book. Designed by George Macy, this is the twelfth and final title in the sixth series of the Limited Editions Club books. After much prodding, Macy induced Henri Matisse to produce a series of original illustrations for this new edition of Ulysses. "These plates," Matisse wrote, "are the product of my mind as I rested it in contemplation of Mr Joyce's work". He further stated that they were among his most successful works in the graphic arts. They constitute the only American publication of Matisse's illustrations.

        2-page letter typed letter signed on German rearmament

      London, , 1935. 2 pages, octavo, first sheet embossed with Rothermere's Stratton House address, autograph salutation and subscription, two inked corrections. Slight creases from mailing folds, slight rust-mark to the top of left of the first sheet from a paper-clip, as also staple punctures, and a single hole punched for tagging, very good. Dated 19th May 1935 and addressed to Mr. [William] Ormsby Gore, Commissioner of Works and member of the Ministerial Committee on Defence Requirements, the letter sets out at length Rothermere's - rather extreme - estimation of the rate of rearmament and preparedness of the Luftwaffe. In April of '35 Ormsby-Gore was named as one of a three-man sub-committee to look into measures that could be taken to improve the British response. Rothermere hopes that Ormsby-Gore is "not one of those Ministers who think that Germany may have only two or three thousand effective aeroplanes," claiming that they have "over ten thousand completely modern, high-speed, standardised planes," and that his "information is that they are now manufacturing between four hundred and eight hundred planes weekly." These sorts of figures were a bone of contention between Rothermere and Churchill, in other respects at one on the issue of German rearmament despite their differing stances on Hitler. Churchill wrote to Rothermere that by continuing "to quote figures about the air which are so fantastic that they simply deprive you of the enormous credit which otherwise would have been due to your foresight and vigilance." (Gilbert, V, p.640) An interesting insight into the dynamics of the debate, identified by Churchill as key to the future of Britain and Europe both.

        Original painting: "Sailor's Farewell," together with autograph book

      1935. Measuring 13 by 9 1/4 inches, this watercolor bears Kent's signature along with the inscription, "to his friend Charly Mortensen, 1935." Mortensen was the telegraph operator aboard the Hans Egede, the ship on which Kent made two of his three celebrated voyages to Igdlorssuit, Greenland, where he would live off and on between 1929 and 1935. His life and work among the native Greenlanders during these years resulted in two of his greatest books: Greenland Journal and Salamina. The present painting, a moving, somber work executed in the artist's typically realistic style, depicts a European sailor, presumably preparing to depart Greenland for home, comforting a native Greenlander who is weeping into her hands at the prospect of their parting. The watercolor is accompanied by Mortensen's autograph book, which contains numerous drawings and inscriptions by friends and Hans Egede passengers, including two drawings by Kent, both signed. One drawing, a charming, informal pen and ink scene of the Hans Egede en route from New York to Greenland under a starry sky, bears an inscription by Kent thanking Mortensen for being a "considerate and obliging friend." The other item, a landscape, appears to use a combination of pen and ink and watercolor, and is inscribed by Kent, "This is a genuine drawing by me -- only drawn all over again and much improved by Mortensen (fair wireless operator, better artist, and best of fellows). Sworn to this day, July 3rd 1935, by Rockwell Kent ... so help me God!" Mortensen's replicated drawing does not appear in the book, although another of his drawings does: a depiction of a native Greenlander, signed "CM after RK," apparently meaning the piece was executed by Mortensen in the style of Kent. Of further interest is a drawing contributed by Kent's teenaged son, Gordon, who accompanied his father on one of the Greenland excursions. Bound in full red leather, which shows some cracking and general wear, the book is a unique item that offers an intimate glimpse into a key period in the life of one of the most important illustrators of the twentieth century. Laid in are seven black and white photographs, including one of the Hans Egede docked at Igdlorssuit, where it has been met by native Greenlanders in sleds and canoes.

        ARCHIVE OF 34 LETTERS AND NOTES WRITTEN BY BURROUGHS TO HIS DAUGHTER JOAN BURROUGHS PIERCE, COMPRISING 13 ALsS; 19 TLsS AND 2 ANsS, COVERING A 12-YEAR PERIOD (1927-1939). Plus 16 black and white photographs (3 1/4 x 4 1/4 inches) of Hawaii taken by ERB, with his typewritten captions on versos

      The correspondence is in very good to fine condition. A detailed. calendar is available upon request. (#111985). This period covered several important personal events in ERB's life: the marriage of his daughter (pronounced "Jo-Ann") to actor James Pierce and her career as an actress (most notably as Jane in the radio version of Tarzan); the birth of their children; ERB's divorce from his first wife Emma, who had become an alcoholic, and his remarriage to the much younger, high-living Florence in 1935, causing much strife between ERB and his children. Along the way are letters and cards from ERB on his travels in Las Vegas, New York, Chicago, the Caribbean and Hawaii. Joan and her family lived during this period in Van Nuys, Hollywood, North Hollywood, Bel-Air, Canoga Park, Girard and Studio City, reflecting their rising and falling fortunes in show business. "Burroughs was probably the most widely- read American author of the first half of the twentieth century, and the character he created in 1912, an English nobleman turned feral, did much to establish the archetype for all the supermen and superheroes who have thronged popular culture since then. His handwriting mirrors his writing style: all forward movement with very little horizontal development. A native of Chicago -- like so many other giants of American pop culture (including, more recently, Walt Disney and Ray Kroc) -- Burroughs moved to Los Angeles when he saw that much of his work involving Tarzan (as well as his Martian, Venusian and subterranean Earth heroes) would be connected with the burgeoning film industry. He settled in the San Fernando Valley in a section later renamed Tarzana in his honor. His legacy to popular culture has been felt not only in America but around the world, and remains vital today. Despite that immense popularity, the author of these letters comes across as a very down-to-earth man, modest sometimes to the point of self-loathing. His income, though large, barely kept up with his fashionable life-style; and the failure of his two marriages further strained his finances as well as relations with his children. Almost all of the longer, handwritten letters in this group precede his 1934 divorce from his first wife, Emma. The man who nourished the wish-fulfillment fantasies of millions confesses in one letter that his 'whole life has been a bitter one, filled with shattered ideals and disillusionment.' Joan was one of three children from the marriage with Emma, and his only daughter. That she (like her brothers) remained in the same business as her father, and, in fact, helped him turn Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. into a family business, testifies to the closeness of the family, an accomplishment not all that common in families of the great and the famous." - Robert Eldridge.

        Typed Letter Signed

      1935. Two pages from Eliot to literary critic F.O. Matthiessen ("Matty"), written "to put in a good word for the boy," Alfred Satterthwaite, at the behest of Satterthwaite's step-father, John Cournos. Satterthwaite was applying "for a scholarship on some foundation in which you [Matthiessen] are in a position of authority." Eliot puts in what good words he can ("although my knowledge of him is very meagre") and then switches subjects to Matthiessen's book, which, although unnamed, would have been The Achievement of T.S. Eliot: "Your book seems to have been earning commendations here, except from the critics in whose eyes the subject matter is enough to damn it. It is impossible for me to regard such a book objectively. All I can say is that I hope that much of what you say is true. By the way, that is a good point about Rose La Touche. Was that pure inspiration, or did we ever mention the subject in conversation?" He closes with a brief note about Ted Spencer and Bonamy Dobree. The letter is signed, "T.S. Eliot." Nice literary and biographical content. On Criterion stationery, with staple holes to the upper left corners, and folded in fourths for mailing; near fine. Mailing envelope included. .
