        Portrait of Frederick George Miles with Whiney Straight and the new plane at Heston, 22 January 1937.

      London, Wide World Photos, 1937. Original photograph, silver print, 18 x 25,5 cm. Frederick George Miles (1903-1976) was an English aircraft designer and manufacturer. Miles was born on 22 March 1903 in Worthing Sussex the oldest of four sons of Frederick, a laundry proprietor, and his wife Esther. He left school early in 1916 and started a motorcycle rental business. Miles soon became interested in aircraft and in 1922 he designed then built with some friends and his brother George a small biplane called the Gnat at the back of his father's laundry in Portslade. The aircraft was not flown but proved an interesting and inspiring project for the young Miles and his brother who had formed the Gnat Aero and Motor Company Limited. He was taught to fly by local pilot Cecil Pashley at Shoreham Airport and after gaining his licence he persuaded Pashley to enter into a partnership and start a flying school and joyriding business. The company soon expanded into aircraft repairs and then split into two separate companies in 1926; the Southern Aero Club and Southern Aircraft. One of the aircraft Miles acquired was an Avro Baby which he modified to turn it into an aerobatic sports aircraft which he called the Southern Martlet. Charles Lindbergh's Miles MohawkIn 1930 Miles intended to emigrate to South Africa to remove himself from a difficult situation when he fell in love with one of his pupils, but he returned after a year and then married the former pupil Maxine Freeman-Thomas a recent divorcee and always known as Blossom. Together they designed a single-seat biplane in 1932 (the Miles M1 Satyr), which was built for them by George Parnall & Co of Yate, Gloucestershire. Also in 1932 he met Charles Powis a motor engineer and owner of an aircraft business Phillips & Powis based at Woodley Aerodrome near Reading. Miles agreed to design a cheap but modern light monoplane which he called the Miles Hawk it was built by Phillips and Powis at Woodley Aerodrome, Reading. The Hawk sold well and Miles joined the company as technical director and chief designer. His brother followed him as a test pilot and manager of the engine section. Other successful designs followed including one special commissioned from Miles by Charles Lindbergh and known as the Miles Mohawk. In 1935 the Phillips and Powis became a public company with Rolls-Royce Limited becoming a major shareholder. Miles became chairman and managing director and his brother Herbert became technical director and chief designer. With the expansion of the Royal Air Force the company won a contract worth £2 million pounds for the Miles Magister basic trainer. Miles M52Rolls-Royce lost interest in the company and in 1941 Miles bought financial control of the company which he renamed Miles Aircraft Limited in 1943. Miles and his wife also started the Miles Aeronautical School to train apprentice technicians and draughtsman. In 1943 Miles was shown a prototype ballpoint pen made by László Bíró and offered to produce them for the Royal Air Force. The ministry were concerned that it would distract from aircraft production but Miles eventually persuaded government officials to let him use 17 unskilled girls to produce the pen which was called the biro after the inventor. When the war finished the Reading biro factory which would employ 700 people became the Miles Martin Pen Company and the biro was sold to the general public. With his brother now Chief Designer for the aircraft Miles concentrated on a design for a supersonic aircraft (the M.52) powered by the then secret Whittle jet engine. The government contract and the programme was cancelled in 1946 but not before all Miles's work was passed on to the United States government and the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA - later to become NASA). Reminiscent of the M.52 the Bell X-1 was the first manned aircraft to break the sound barrier in 1947. Problems with the return to civil production led to the collapse of Miles Aircraft in 1948. Undeterred Miles started a new company F.G. Miles Engineering and moved back to Shoreham in 1949. In 1961 the company became part of the new Beagle Group and Miles became the deputy chairman and his brother was chief designer. The Beagle group collapsed in 1969 so Miles went on to form other engineering companies involved with flight simulators, aircraft structures and other aviation projects. Miles died on 15 August 1976 in Worthing, Sussex. - - - - - - - - - - - Air Commodore Whitney Willard Straight CBE, MC, DFC (6 November 1912 - 5 April 1979) was a Grand Prix motor racing driver, aviator, businessman, and a member of the prominent Whitney family of the United States. Born in New York, Whitney Straight was the son of Willard Dickerman Straight and heiress Dorothy Payne Whitney. He was six years old when his father died in France of influenza during the great epidemic while serving with the United States Army during World War I. Following his mother's remarriage to British agronomist Leonard K. Elmhirst in 1925, the family moved to England. They lived at Dartington Hall where he attended the progressive school founded by his parents. His education was completed at Trinity College, Cambridge. Flying was his passion, and while 16 years old, still too young for a pilot's licence he had already achieved over 60 hours solo flight. While still an undergraduate at Cambridge, he became a well known Grand Prix motor racing driver and competed at events in England and on the Continent. He competed in more Grands Prix than any American until after World War II. In 1933 driving a Maserati he won the Donington Trophy, the Mountain Championship at Brooklands and the Brighton Speed Trials. In 1934 he formed his own motor racing team, personally driving to victory in the South African Grand Prix, held on the 16-mile Buffalo circuit in East London.[1] He also gave public demonstrations at Brooklands Racing Circuit achieving a speed of 138.7 mph, a record for 5 litre class cars. On July 17, 1935 he married Lady Daphne Margarita Finch-Hatton, daughter of the 14th Earl of Winchilsea, and they had two daughters. In his early 20s, as head of the Straight Corporation Limited, he operated airfields throughout Britain and ran flying clubs. In 1936 he helped develop the Miles Whitney Straight aircraft. He became a naturalised British citizen that year. On October 18, 1938, the Straight Corporation purchased control of Norman Edgar (Western Airways), Ltd. and renamed it Western Airways, Ltd. During World War II, Whitney Straight served as a Royal Air Force pilot in No. 601 Squadron RAF with over 4 kills to his credit in the Battle of Britain. Straight was seriously wounded in Norway in 1940 while laying out an aerodrome on the frozen surface of a lake, and after convalescing he rejoined his squadron towards the end of the Battle of Britain. For his service in Norway, he would, in 1942, be awarded the Krigskorset med Sverd or Norwegian War Cross with sword.[2] He was credited with four and a half kills and also recorded damage to many other planes. He was shot down over France in August 1941 and initially evaded capture. Through the French Underground, he made his way to Spain where he was eventually captured and put in a German POW camp. However, he escaped and reached safety in Gibraltar. With the rank of Air Commodore, he was sent to the Middle East in charge of RAF transport command operations there, and in September 1943 took over the newly made Cairo aerodrome. At war's end, he became chairman of the Royal Aero Club and in July 1947, at the age of only thirty-four, he was made managing director and Chief Executive Officer of British Overseas Airways Corporation. He reorganised the company and in 1949 was appointed deputy Chairman of the board. In the United States, his cousin Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney was the President of Aviation Corporation of America which became Pan American Airways. Later Whitney Straight joined Rolls-Royce as deputy Chairman, and it was while visiting Peking, China in 1958 that Straight was horrified to discover that the Russian Mig 15 planes had counterfeit versions of the Rolls-Royce Derwent and Nene engines. Russia had been provided with 40 of these engines under an export license provided by the government of Prime Minister Clement Attlee after the war. Straight tried unsuccessfully to claim back £200m from Russia in royalties. Whitney Straight died in Fulham in 1979 at the age of sixty-six. Whitney Straight was the father of Barney Barnato Walker (born 1947), whose mother was noted aviatrix Diana Barnato Walker, MBE, the first British woman to break the sound barrier (Source - "Spreading My Wings" by Diana Barnato-Walker).

Part II was written in Urbana, Illinois, where I was living in the house of a friend, whose English papers I corrected in exchange for room and board and five books a month -- an arrangement she thought up so I could go on writing and not starve to death. Part III I wrote there also, in ten days, walking the floor and brushing the tears out of my eyes so I would see the keys on the typewriter. W.M."

        Georgica - Les Georgiques de Virgile. Quatre livres en 2 portefeuilles (4 Bücher in zwei Mappen, four volumes in two folders)

      Paris, Philippe Gonin, 1937 + 1943 (acheve d'imprimer 21 mars 1950).. Zwei büttenpapierbezogene O-Halbpergamentmappen in jeweils einem büttenpapierbezogenem O-Schuber. Band I: Schuber, Titelblatt und 4 Blätter des Vorwortes im oberen Rand etwas stockfleckig. (4 Bl.), 174 Seiten, (6 Bl.). Band II: (6 Bl.), 154 Seiten, (5 Bl.) auf unbeschnittenem kräftigen Büttenpapier mit dem Maillol-Wasserzeichen hockender weiblicher Akt extra für diese Ausgabe angefertigt. Die beiden Mappen beinhalten den Text von Vergil in französischer und lateinischer Sprache und 122 O-Holzschnitte von Aristide Maillol, 4° (33,8 x 25,3 x 4,7 cm).. Das erste Buch der Georgica behandelt den Ackerbau, das zweite den Obst- und Weinbau, das dritte die Viehzucht und das vierte die Imkerei. Zwischen den eigentlichen landwirtschaftlichen Themen werden jedoch zahlreiche Mythen erzählt und poetische Reflexionen eingeflochten. Dies verdeutlicht, dass Vergil weniger eine sachliche Belehrung anstrebte, sondern seine Dichtung die kulturelle renovatiodes des Augustus unterstützen sollte. So dient die idealisierende Schilderung des Bienenstaates als Gleichnis für dessen Herrschaft. Die Georgica gelten mit Recht als eine der herausragenden Dichtungen der antiken Literatur. --- Diese Ausgabe ist das Exemplar Nr. 579 von 750 gedruckten Exemplaren und das letzte Holzschnittwerk von Aristide Maillol!

        [Photo Album]: 1937 Touring Photo Album of Mexico and Central America

      Mexico and Central America. 1937. Octavo. Black leather spiral photo album measuring 9.5" x 7.5". An assortment of 147 sepia toned photographs measuring 3" x 5" and affixed to stiff black paper. Very good with curling on the boards, rubbing, and tiny tears. Most of the 147 photographs were taken during a trip through Mexico and Central America. Depicted are the sights of Latin America, palm trees, sombreros, mountains, a tented bizarre, and a hike through a rain forest. The tour participants can be seen in fedoras posing with locals and enjoying the atmosphere. One photo shows a group of local children hanging a large lizard upside down, which apparently was extremely hilarious based on their facial expressions, not so much for the reptile. Additionally, there are 21 non-trip related photos and postcards from places in Arkansas and North Carolina toward the rear of the album. An interesting accumulation of trip photographs documenting 1930s Latin America. .

        Still Life of Renaissance Sculptured Male Bust: oil on canvas, signed lower right

      n.p, after 1937. Image 20 x 16 inches; four-inch split in canvas in lower margin. . . Gerald Leslie Brockhurst (1890-1978) was born in Birmingham, England, where he displayed a precocious talent for drawing. In London he was a prize-winning pupil at the Royal Academy Schools, and began etching in 1914. The following year he and his wife Anais moved to Ireland where for five years, under the patronage of Oliver St. John Gogarty, he made numerous paintings and drawings of Irish people and scenes. In 1920 hed returned to London and began a twenty-year career as an etcher, producing over 80 prints, and portrait painter of such distinction that he was able to command £1,000 a canvas, undertaking a maximun of 20 commissions a year. He was elected to the Royal Academy in 1937. Around 1929 he met Kathleen Woodward, a sixteen-year old model, whom he rechristened Dorette, and who became the subject of some of his most important works. Their relationship developed rapidly, and led to a protracted, sensationalized divorce case which led to his and Dorette's departure to America in 1940, where they were later married. During the final thirty years of his life Brockhurst pursued a successful career as a portrait painter ($10,000 for a full-length study) dying after a long illness at his home in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey
