        Original Portrait Photograph - signed in green ink by Philip Glass.

      Original Black-and-White Photograph on archival paper. Excellent condition, mounted. Signed photographs by Glass are extremely rare ! Philip Morris Glass (born January 31, 1937) is an American composer. He is considered one of the most influential music makers of the late 20th century. His music is also often controversially described as minimal music, along with the work of the other "major minimalists" La Monte Young, Terry Riley and Steve Reich. Glass has distanced himself from the "minimalist" label, describing himself instead as a composer of "music with repetitive structures". Though his early mature music shares much with what is normally called "minimalist", he has since evolved stylistically. Currently, he describes himself as a "classicist", pointing out that he is trained in harmony and counterpoint and studied such composers as Franz Schubert, Johann Sebastian Bach and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart with Nadia Boulanger. Glass has founded his namesake musical group, Philip Glass Ensemble, with which he still performs on keyboards, as well as operas, musical theatre works, ten symphonies, eleven concertos, solo works, chamber music including string quartets and instrumental sonatas, and film scores. Three of his film scores have been nominated for Academy Awards. (Wikipedia)

        William Lyon Mackenzie King Signed Letter and Borwick Photograph Album during King's Return Voyage in early July 1937 from Berlin after meeting Hermann Goering and Adolf Hitler on June 29, 1937

      Southampton, QC, 1937. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. [Southampton, Quebec, Toronto, New York, 1937] - A mini archive commemorating Canada's Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King's journey to London and Berlin at the dawn of the Second World War, featuring an album of photographs, a manuscript letter and a telegraph, from his return voyage on the Empress of Britain. The album belonged to, and was compiled by, British politician Lieutenant Colonel George Oldroyd Borwick, who made the acquaintance of Mackenzie King on this voyage to Canada on July 3, 1937. The manuscript signed letter is written by King on the ship's stationery addressed to Borwick and dated 6 July 1937 while both parties were onboard the Empress of Britain. The telegraph was sent from King on 20 July l930 from Ottawa, to Borwick who was on another ship soon to make his voyage back to England. Album contains approximately 111 photographs and postcards mounted onto ivory cardstock leaves with locations captioned in manuscript, as well as the itinerary (abstract logs) of two ships, and one ephemeral menu card. Oblong 8vo. album measuring approximately 26 x 19 cm, burgundy cloth boards with gilt lined borders. Photographs, printed cards and ephemera printed vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 6 x 8 cm, and the largest 16 x 11cm. Minor wear to boards, two printed cards with stuck together tears, otherwise in all in very good condition. Canada's 10th and longest-serving prime minister William Lyon Mackenzie King (1874-1950} is best known for his leadership of Canada throughout the Second World War (1939-1945) when he mobilized Canadian money, supplies and volunteers to support Britain. while at the same time boosting the economy and maintaining home front morale. Not long before the war, In June 1937, he had visited Adolf Hitler, the Chancellor of Germany in Berlin, and made It clear that he would support England in the event of any campaign against her. The present album contains photographs of his return voyage to Canada. The accompanying letter was written by Mackenzie, only eight days after the said meeting in Berlin. who requests a private conference with a British politician. In April 1937, in his third term as Canada's Prime Minister (Oct. 23, 1935 to Nov. 15 1948) William Lyon Mackenzie King (1874-1950) departed from Canada for a European tour of great Importance. His agenda consisted of three priorities: attending the coronation of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth on 12 May. participating in the Commonwealth Prime Ministers' conference from 14 May to 24 June, and making a visit to Berlin. In the capital city, on 29 June 1937, Mackenzie met with the notorious Adolf Hilter, the Chancellor of Germany, telling him that if an attack were to be made upon England, Canada would not stand aside, but would Indeed actively support her Commonwealth nation. Mackenzie is said to have been impressed by the leader as many were prior to the war, describing him as "one who truly loves his fellow man, and his country, and would make any sacrifice for their good." It is this W.L.M.K meeting with Hitler and others and his positive responses and convinced there would be no war, much like the UK's Chamberlain, that makes this collection so historically interesting and collectable. The letter, and Borwick meetings after the German trip support what King wrote in his diaries. Hiltler was nice, there would be no war and all was well. The focus on social engagement with the Borwick's bring this attitude to life in King words and Borthwick pictures. These are the lessons from history to be learned as even Prime Ministers believe what they want without getting to the realities. What a great collection in this regard. Following is form Library and Archives W.L.M.K's diary journal giving his impressions of Hitler… "King was impressed by Hitler. He wrote, "My sizing up of the man as I sat and talked with him was that he is really one who truly loves his fellow-men, and his country, and would make any sacrifice for their good." (Diary, June 29, 1937) Hitler appeared to be "a man of deep sincerity and a genuine patriot." (Diary, June 29, 1937) King saw similarities between himself and Hitler, writing, "As I talked with him, I could not but think of Joan of Arc. He is distinctly a mystic .... He is a teetotaller and also a vegetarian; is unmarried, abstemist in all his habits and ways." (Diary, June 29, 1937)" Below quoted from a CBC online article - the Rise of Hitler. "King's apparent naiveté suited his political goals well. Canadas national unity was his main concern. King was determined to avoid drawing Canada into overseas conflicts that could upset the countrys fragile harmony. He had a vivid memory of the conscription crisis of the First World War that had bitterly divided French and English Canada. On an international level, King believed like other leaders like Britains Neville Chamberlain that a stable Germany served as an important counterweight to Stalin's Soviet Union." This album represents Mackenzie King's return voyage from England, departing from Southampton on the Empress of Britain on 3 July 1937, for Quebec City, and Is accompanied by a letter written by him to British politician George Borwick who was on the same ship for a visit to America. Mackenzie's meeting with the Chancellor of Germany, including comments made regarding English-Canadian relations and political commitments would most certainly have been discussed. Excerpts from the King manuscript letter: "July 6th, 1937, Suite 147-151, Dear Colonel Borwick:" "I was pleased to learn in a letter received aboard the Empress from Lord Drummond, about my fellow passengers. I should much like to have the pleasure of making the acquaintance of Mrs. Borwick and yourself, and of a talk with you about Canada." ".... meet me in my suite... we could talk more quietly than in the lounge... I am not inviting anyone to join us that we may have a bit more freedom of conversation." 'Yours sincerely, [signed J Mackenzie King" End Excerpts. From Ottawa on 20 July 1937, Mackenzie also sent Borwick a telegraph. Borwick was staying a few days at the Prince Arthur Hotel built in 1911, in Port Arthur [now part of Thunder Bay], before visiting Niagara Falls and New York City. The letter and telegraph are both addressed to Lieutenant-Colonel George Oldroyd Borwick (1879-1964), former MP for North Croydon, having served from 1918 to 1922, and who compiled the photograph album. Following a photograph and abstract log sailing itinerary of the Empress of Britain, and a photograph is of Mr & Mrs Borwick onboard, the album contains over one hundred pre-WWII nostalgic views of some of North America's eastern port cities. The Empress of Britain is seen on the St. Lawrence River. A series of photographs shows historical sites of Quebec City. Monuments and important places in Montreal are remembered in a series of postcard views. Mackenzie returned to his home in Ottawa (the 231 hectare Mackenzie King Estate in Gatlneau Park), and thus parted company with the Borwicks, who cruised through the Thousand Islands before arriving in Toronto, which is shown in twenty professional views. Making a sojourn slightly north, the Borwicks captured snapshot views as they passed through the Soo locks at Sault Ste. Marie and entered Lake Superior. The album further Includes four (4) rare snapshot photographs of Kakabeka Falls, as well as two (2) panoramic views of Niagara Falls. The couple went on to tour New York City, staying in the Waldorf Astoria Hotel, which from their suite on the 22nd floor offered splendid city views. Twenty-three (23) classic and nostalgic views of New York City are included in the album, featuring the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State building, Time Square, Bowling Green, Radio City, the Brooklyn Bridge, Park Avenue the Hudson River docks, and so forth. (William Lyon Mackenzie King, George Oldroyd Borwick, and Mrs. Mary Borwick, all appear on the passenger ship list for the Southampton-Quebec voyage of Empress of Britain, 3-8 July 1937, available through online sources.] William Lyon Mackenzie King (1874-1950) was Canada's 10th and longest-serving prime minister. He is best known for his leadership of Canada throughout the Second World War (1939-1945) when he mobilized Canadian money, supplies and volunteers to support Britain, while at the same time boosting the economy and maintaining home front morale. In March 1936, in response to the German remilitarization of the Rhineland, King had the Canadian High Commissioner in London inform the British government that if Britain went to war with Germany over the Rhineland issue, Canada would remain neutral. In June 1937, during an Imperial Conference of all the Dominion Prime Ministers in London, King informed British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain that Canada would only go to war if Britain were directly attacked, and, furthermore, that if Britain were to become involved in a continental war then Chamberlain was not to expect Canadian support. Mackenzie King held a special interest in Berlin, Germany, stemming from the fact that he was born, and lived his early life, in Berlin, Ontario, and also a two-month stay there during his university years. Although the name of the Ontario town was changed in 1916 to Kitchener, King always thought of it as Berlin. When he was in Berlin, Germany, he often referred to his birthplace of the same name in Canada. In spite of his declarations in 1936, and his connection to German Berlin, during his meeting with the Chancellor of Germany, he expressed unwavering commitment to England in case of war. The Library Archive of Canada describes Mackenzie's visit to Berlin In 1937 as follows: "In June 1937, Mackenzie King, now 62, returned to Berlin to visit the German Chancellor... King had thought of making the visit the year before, but had been advised against it by 0.D. Skelton, his Under Secretary of State for External Affairs. Canada's official foreign policy in the late 1930s was isolationist. Nothing was to interfere with the maintenance of national unity. But King had been a very successful labour mediator, and felt that he could bring these talents to bear on the threat of another world war. King had not had any formal plans to visit [the Chancellor of Germany] when he travelled to England for the Coronation of George VI, but decided to go after receiving an invitation from Joachim von Ribbentrop, the German Ambassador to Britain, and the encouragement of the British government. Arriving in Berlin on June 27, King registered at the Ad/on Hotel. For the first two days he was taken to see youth camps, labour camps, the Berlin Zoo and the Olympic Stadium, where he watched a number of sports competitions from the seat that [the Chancellor of Germany] had occupied during the 1936 Olympic Games. On the morning of June 29, King met with Hermann Goering, the German Air Minister. They talked for an hour and a half about trade between Canada and Germany, Canada's relationship with Britain, and German expansion in Europe. When Goering declared that England was trying to control Germany's actions, King replied that what 'England was most concerned about, was danger of some quick, precipitate action being taken in any place, which might set the whole of Europe aflame.' (Diary, June 29, 1937)... King went next to the Hindenburg Palace for his interview with [the Chancellor of Germany]. The interview lasted for more than an hour. King showed [the Chancellor of Germany] the biography of himself by Norman Rogers and pointed out a picture of the cottage where he was born in Berlin, Ontario. ·... I had brought this book with me to show him where I was born, and the associations which I had with Berlin, Germany, through Berlin, Canada.' (Diary, June 29, 1937) King spoke of being in Berlin 37 years before. King praised the constructive work of [the Chancellor of Germany's] regime and then mentioned the fear and suspicion caused by German rearmament. [The Chancellor of Germany] indicated that Germany was rearming to gain respect and blamed all of Germany's difficulties on the Treaty of Versailles. He told King, 'so far as war is concerned, you need have no fear of war at the instance of Germany. We have no desire for war; our people don't want war, and we don't want war.' (Diary, June 29, 1937) King stressed the fact that Canada was a free and independent nation, even though it was a part of the British Empire. He said, however, that in the face of an act of aggression on the part of any country, all parts of the Commonwealth would stand together. When [the Chancellor of Germany] complained about the British, King assured him that England wanted peace. At the end of their meeting, Hitler gave King an autographed, framed photograph of himself. After the interview with Adolf Hitler King walked through the Tiergarten and found the house where he had lived with the Webers in 1900... That night he attended the Opera and sat in the former royal box, in the seat where Hitler usually sat when he was there. King was happy when he left Berlin. 'Looking back on the German visit, I can honestly say it was as enjoyable, informative and inspiring, as any visit I have ever had anywhere. Indeed I doubt if I ever had four days which were more interesting or indeed comparable in significance.' (Diary, June 30, 1937) He was 'tremendously relieved' and believed there would be no war... Once the war began, though, King's opinion of Adolf Hitler changed radically. On August 20, 1946, King, now 71, flew to Berlin from the peace conference in Paris, to view the damage done by the war." Lieutenant-Colonel George Oldroyd Borwick (1879- 1964) was the son of Joseph Cooksey Borwick and Ellen Elizabeth Oldroyd. He was educa1ed at Harrow School, Harrow on the Hill, London, and graduated from Trinity College at the University of Oxford. On 14 May 1915 he married Hon. Mary Cavendish, daughter of Henry Anson Cavendish, 4th Baron Waterpark and Emily Stenning. He gained the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel in the service of the Surrey and Sussex Yeomanry, Royal Field Artillery, and was decorated with the award of the Companion, Distinguished Service Order (D.S.O.) in 1917. He was decorated with the award of the Legion of Honour. He held the office of Member of Parliament (M.P.) for North Croydon between 1918 and 1922. He died on 27 June 1964 at age 85, without issue.

Der Einfluss des Judentums auf die Gestaltung des deutschen Lebens ist damit einfürallemal vorbei. Durch die Nürnberger Gesetze ist erreicht, daß in Zukunft das deutsche Leben wieder wie in früheren Jahrhunderten und Jahrtausenden von deutschen Menschen nach deutschen Grundsätzen gestaltet wird.

        Chinese Buddhist Monasteries. Their plan and its function as a setting for Buddhist monastic life.

      - Copenhagen, Gads 1937. Folio publisher's half gilt vellum; numerous photo ills, plans & measured drawings (a couple folding, four folding plans in the pocket at end). A splendid copy in the original card slipcase. Original and best edition by miles. One of the great scholarly studies in architecture in which Prip-Moller's modesty of style and scrupulous research - devoted to setting exact measurement of the material with historical documentation and spiritual purpose - is set in a scrupulous and stylish design, producing a large and solid book outwardly very elegant and inwardly complex. Almost the embodiment of its subject. "A monumental work which, in its own sphere, has no rival at the present time, and is hardly likely to encounter one in the future." said Gosta Montell ('Geografisk Tidsskrift', b.42; 1939). Prip-Moller preached this intensity of purpose, function and meaning in his architectural polemic and practised it in his own buildings - the best known now is probably the Christian church he designed for Reichelt in Hong Kong in 1930 - and his direct influence doesn't pass unnoticed in buildings like Utzon's Bagsvaerd Church.
