        Set of 3 Photographic Portfolios

      (1936) 1936 - Set of three portfolios of original black-and-white silver prints on Agfa paper by an unidentified photographer. (The photographer has signed his name on several prints but we are unable to decipher his handwriting.) Two of the portfolios are stamped "Mittlemeer-Reise [Mediterranean Travel] 1936 / I and II." The third portfolio is not stamped but is obviously from the same series. Includes over 200 stunning images of Africa, Europe, and the Middle East, presumably in 1936, with numerous picturesque shots of the regions' landscapes, sites, and citizens. The first portfolio contains 41 prints, with most measuring either 5 1/4 X 4 1/2 or 3 X 4 1/4 inches, mounted on 30 9 3/4 X 6 1/2 inch cards. The second album contains 130 prints, with most measuring 6 3/4 X 4 3/4 and 4 3/4 X 4 3/4 inches, mounted on 100 10 X 6 1/2 inch cards. The third album contains 41 prints, with most measuring 9 1/2 X 7 inches, matted and mounted on 33 13 X 9 3/4 inch cards. The majority of the images have been captioned by hand on their mounts with the location of the photograph. An incredible vernacular document, with numerous compelling images by a highly skilled, yet unidentified, photographer. A few photographs are toned, some have very light foxing, overall near fine condition housed in three portfolios in very good condition, with wear to the binding and spine. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Two Typed Letter Signed

      1936 and 1937. Two Typed Letter Signed from Margaret Mitchell from 1936 and 1937 sent to Scribner's Magazine editor Katherine Jackson. Folded from being mailed, else fine. Both are written on Mitchell's letterhead and Signed, with the first letter additionally Signed in parentheses: "Mrs. John R. Marsh." The earlier letter is dated October 8, 1936, just three months after the publication of Gone With the Wind. In it Mitchell apologizes for not being able to send Scribner's her best books list because she has been too busy the past year doing research for her book. "Usually I read enormously but during the past year I have read nothing at all except reference books," she explains. "I put in six months on reference books, in order to have four references instead of two for the historical statements in my book. I put in months correcting type script and more months proof reading. Some times I worked twenty hours a day. This was not very good for my eyes and I have been unable to read anything except the largest headlines since last June." The second letter from January 23, 1937 is a note thanking Jackson's for the kind words she wrote about Mitchell in a recent issue of Scribner's: " I delayed because I wanted to write you something more than a brief acknowledgment of my appreciation. But it seems that the time for such a letter will never come for I fell so far behind..." .

      Washington DC:: Associates in Negro Folk Education,, 1936. First Edition. SIGNED AND INSCRIBED "FOR MARIAN ANDERSON / IN DEEP APPRECIATION AND / FRIENDSHIP, / ALAIN LOCKE / 1939". Very Good++ hardback First Edition First Printing in the original color printed boards with mild edge wear. Offsetting title page. No Dust Jacket issued. 8vo. 142 pp. The volume traces African-American music from slave spirituals through Ragtime and Jazz. In the chapter on "Negro Musicians To-Day" Locke highlights Marian Anderson as one: "Who has now achieved international fame as one of greatest voices of this generation" (page 124). The date of Locke's inscription, 1939, and Locke's academic position in Washington, leads us to consider that the book may well have been presented to Marian Anderson at the time of her historic Easter Day concert at the Lincoln Memorial.
