        Notice dated 18 October 1862 at Cairo (Illinois) and signed as Acting Rear Admiral, Commanding Mississippi Squadron, providing instructions to Steamboats plying the Mississippi during the war. The notice reads: ÒGun Boats will leave Cairo three times a week at least, and also leave Memphis for Cairo in the safe way. All Masters of Steamers can have protection up and down river by applying to the Commanding Officer at Memphis, Cairo & Helena. The convoys will hoist a white flag with blue cross, and fire a gun three hours before starting. Any Masters of Steamboats who wish to load with cotton on the way up will be protected by the convoy vessel while doing so by giving notice in time of before sailing to the Naval Officer in Command of the convoy.Ó

      . .: ., .. .. . .. . Cf. Admiral Porter in the DAB; cf. R. S. West, Jr., The Second Admiral (1937). David Dixon Porter was the son of Commodore David Porter. His long and distinguished career was brightest during the Civil war -- he was the only naval commander of the war to receive the thanks of his government three times [DAB]. Following the war, he was Superintendent of the U.S. Naval Academy where his tenure was epoch-making. He was the second naval officer to be appointed to the rank of Rear Admiral, Farragut being the first. Very good.

        The Novels and Stories of Willa Cather

      Houghton Mifflin, 1937. Leather. Good. The Autograph Edition of the Novels and Stories of Willa Cather. This set contains 12 of the 13 volumes of The Novels and Stories of Willa Cather, Autograph Edition, (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1937-1941). LIMITED to 970 copies, this is number 411. Volume 11, "Lucy Gayheart & My Mortal Enemy" is missing. The first volume in the set, O Pioneers, was signed by Willa Cather upon publication. Please Note: While researching this set I discovered that a cream/tan linen cloth spine was the original binding so I contacted an expert in the field of book collecting: "It would appear that your set has been re-bound, probably to match an existing private library's bindings." 3/4 Calf leather is the binding now used for this set. This set is in great overall condition. The pages and bindings are very good, some volummes appear never to have been read. The coverboards and spines have minor wear and scuffing. Volumes 1 and 8 have above average scuffing to the tops of the spines.

        La photographie n'est pas l'art

      Paris: G.L.M., , 1937. Forward by Andre Breton. Octavo. Sheets loose as issued in original blue wrappers with titles in black. With the original dye cut black outer wrapper. Housed in a black rounded spine cloth slipcase with chemise. 12 heliograph reproductions after photographs by Man Ray. Typical fading to the upper wrapper through the viewing pane cut into the outer wrapper but an excellent copy, First and only edition. One of the photographer's little masterpieces. There has been speculation recently that one of the plates exists in two states. Apparently the heliograph failed in some way or other and a half tone was produced to finish the run. Certainly the plate in question "Plein-air artistique" is a little grainy but on the same paper stock. We assume this therefore to be in the first state although quite what bearing this might have on priority is unclear. The dye-cut outer wrapper, by the way, was added to allow simple viewing of the images within a handy basic frame.

        1930's concept car design

      circa 1937. Mixed media on paper. 7 1/2 x 20 3/4 inches. Framed. 20 3/4 x 30 3/4 inches. Exquisite drawing of a 1930's concept car The old, established Willoughby firm of Utica, New York had a reputation for conservative, quality coachwork in 1930 when Viennese born Hoffmann was hired as draghtsman/designer. He quickly moved the company's design philosophy to the forefront of the streamline school, translating traditional luxury car body types such as this touring car into the modern idiom. Willoughby designed bodies for all the major luxury car firms. We have attributed this drawing to Hoffman on the basis of a very similar drawing of the period that was acquired in 1985 from Hoffman's widow, clearly done by the same hand and exhibited the same exquisite touch and sense of proportion.

A fine set with just a modicum of the usual entirely organic variation in colour. The Sussex Edition, the definitive edition limited to 525 numbered sets, signed by the author. During the last years of his life, Kipling was engaged in a complete revision of his works, with a view to having it published in Britain (as here) and in America (the Burwash edition). In both cases, he signed sheets for the editions before his death and the editions appeared posthumously. Although 525 sets of sheets for the Sussex edition were prepared, far fewer were bound and many were lost to enemy action as they lay in the publisher&#39;s warehouse.
