Over his lifetime he built up a substantial collection of books (16,000 volumes at the time of his death) and literary emphemara amongst which were materials by and about R. M. Ballantyne, the Victorian adventure story writer. Quayle's own work was mainly related to the themes of collecting books but he also produced a noted biography on Ballantyne (1967) and two books of folk tales: one of Cornish Tales (The Magic Ointment) and one of Japanese Tales (The Shining Princess). These were both illustrated by the prolific Michael Foreman. Quayle died in a fall from the cliffs at Zennor Head near to his home, Carn Cobba; a house noted for its cliffside gardens.'. Housed in a custom solander box with gilt tiling. Scarce with such attributes as signed copies of this title very rarely appear on the market. Collectible.

        Photograph

      1938. ABBOTT, Berenice. Photograph. Glass Brick and Brownstone Fronts. No place, circa 1940. Gelatin silver print (image measures 7-1/2 by 9 inches), mounted and matted (total measures 13 by 14-1/2 inches), caption on mount. $2000.Early gelatin silver print of a key 1938 photograph by Berenice Abbott, one of the select images chosen for her masterwork, Changing New York (1939), capturing the striking contrasts of style in an ever-evolving and restless Manhattan though AbbottÂ’s image of the two buildings on East 48th Street—the boldly remodeled office of modernist architect William Lescase and a neighboring brownstone—captioned below the image on print mount, handsomely mounted and matted.This early gelatin silver print of AbbottÂ’s photograph of two buildings on ManhattanÂ’s East 48th Street, titled “Glass Brick and Brownstone Fronts,” is one of the key images featured in her classic work, Changing New York (1939), funded by the Federal Art Project (FAP). This striking image “not only fulfills AbbottÂ’s criterion for the historical importance of the documentary mode, but also demonstrates its power as a medium of personal expression” (Parr & Badger I:141), providing “a distinctive interpretation of New York as well as a priceless document thereof” (Icons of Photography, 104). Abbott took this photograph on February 1, 1938, an image affirming that her “vision of this historically rich part of Manhattan extended beyond preconceived ideas of New York as the archetypal modern city.” She focuses on the contrast between the “iconoclastic office of modernist architect William Lescaze” and a neighboring brownstone. Both townhouses, built in the 1860s, were part of a group “that was uniformly remodeled in 1920 with a common garden as Turtle Bay Gardens. In 1934 Lescaze brazenly injected into this ensemble an example of the International Style, complete with white stucco, glass brick, horizontal windows and rooftop garden.” Near the time of the bookÂ’s publication, Abbott made a set of prints for the Museum of the City of New York, a second set for the Index of American Design and a partial set for the New York State Museum in Albany. Those prints (not this), each signed in pencil on the mount front, were printed by Abbott. When Abbott left the FAP in 1939, the disposition of the negatives was unresolved; despite her protests “the FAP continued to issue prints until 1943, when the FAP disbanded and sent AbbottÂ’s 700 negatives” to the Museum of the City of New York, where they remain” (Yochelson, Berenice Abbott, 229, 383, 31). An about-fine matted print, evenly brown-toned.

        Analysen Van AVRO's Wereld-Schaak-Tournooi

      Algemeene Vereeniging Radio 1938 - 146 pages with diagrams, tables and 8 plates of the participants. Octavo (8 7/8" x 6"). Issued in red boards with a black and white pictorial cover. [signed by Max Euwe] Dedicated to the 20th anniversary of the Max Euwe Chess Club of Amsterdam laid on front paste down. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 5574) First edition. The A.V.R.O. 1938 was a double-round tournament held in November 1938 under the sponsorship of the Dutch wireless company, Algemene Verenigde Radio Omroep. The participants, Alekhine, Botvinnik, Capablanca, Euwe, Fine, Flohr, Keres and Reshevsky, included the reigning World Champion and all his potential challengers. The sponsors intended the event to be regarded as an unofficial Candidates tournament, and the winner (or the runner-up in the case of a victory by Alekhine) was promised financial backing for a World Championship match. For a tournament of such importance, the playing conditions were appalling. The players traveled through Holland, ten venues in different towns were used, and on playing days the competitors were often forced to miss dinner. These circumstances naturally favored the younger grandmasters at the expense of Alekhine and Capablanca. The final scores were: Keres and Fine 8 1/2, Botvinnik 7 1/2, Alekhine, Reshevsky and Euwe 7, Capablanca 6, Flohr 4 1/2. The tie for 1st place was broken in favor of Keres, who had the superior Sonneborn-Berger rating. The projected match between Alekhine and Keres did not take place, since Alekhine had already contracted to defend his title first against Flohr, who was the official FIDE World Championship challenger. Alekhine did promise to play a subsequent match against Keres if he retained the title, but the start of the Second World War terminated all negations. One of the best, possibly the best of the tournament was Bottvinnik's game v Capablanca [Golombek: p20]. Condition Corners bumped and rubbed, sunning to heal edges. A very good copy issued without a dust jacket. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Plat of the Brewery, and Bottling House Premises of the Boston Beer Company

      Boston, 1938. Nine architectural plans for the Boston Beer Company Brewery and Bottling House, 38.5 x 50 cm each. Printed on engineering vellum, recto only. The nine numbered plats depict an overview (with cross streets and geographical context), basement through fifth floor plans, and two cross sections. Indicating dimensions and material types, the plans give a full picture of a 19th century brewery and bottling house operation. Plan includes layout for bottling house machines (including soaker and washer, pasteuriser, and [Norton] Oslund labeler), ale fermentation cellar, malt and yeast storage, cooper's shop, water tower for ammonia condensers, brewmaster's office, wort cooler room, among many other areas. The Boston Beer Company was founded in 1828 by Gamaliel Bradford, Nathan Rice, Benjamin Thaxter, and Elijah Loring; it was chartered and incorporated by an act of the Massachusetts Legislature. The Boston Beer Company, on Second Street in South Boston, was in operation until 1957. The plans in this collection were approved in April 1938, just five years after the ratification of the Twenty-first Amendment and during a period of rapid growth in beer production. Boston, with a total of thirty-one breweries, was distinguished as the city with the highest number of breweries, per capita, in the United States. In 1985, Jim Koch unveiled Samual Adams beer and revived the Boston Beer Company name as among the first wave of breweries to characterize the modern American craft renaissance. The architectural firm that drew the plans is unnamed, but plans are signed by draftsman and others. Some edgewear, creasing, and discoloration throughout the plans, but otherwise very good. Several plans annotated with color-coded pencil marks.
