      8 Dec. 1938, New York - Superb and touching one-page letter in Kent's minuscule hand to his 25-year-old daughter Clara expressing his disappointment that she will not be spending Christmas with him. In full: "It was about 12 years ago when, out of consideration for your mother, I gave up claiming my family for Christmas Day and set New Years Day as our day for Christmas celebration. That this gave you children two Christmases we hoped was doubly nice for you; and that it gave us Christmas--though a week later--with my children was a happiness that we planned for and looked forward to. Only the absence far from home of Frances [his second wife whom he would divorce in 1939] or me or both of us has made a New Years' pass uncelebrated as the family Christmas. All this you know. And that, knowing it, you pass up your father's Christmas for a New Year at a friend's is something that I will not forget nor easily forgive. That Frances is deeply hurt at your 'previous engagement' when after two years of enforced absence she is at last home again and eager to make a Christmas for us all, is something I have read in her face as she read your letter. That is all I know about it. I will now wish you both a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year." SIGNED "Affectionately Father." The mixture of sadness and restrained anger is quite evident in this scarce and very personal autograph letter by one of the most famous American artists of the twentieth century. The bulk of Kent's papers were donated to the Smithsonian. Normal creases from folding, about Fine [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Document signed

      1938 - ROOSEVELT, Franklin D. Document signed. Washington: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1938. Folio, single sheet (measures 9 by 13-1/2 inches) partially printed and completed in typescript on recto and verso, embossed red paper seal. $6500.Scarce 1938 official presidential pardon signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Attorney General Homer Cummings, granting a pardon to Louis Pettofrezzo (aka Louis Fritz), who pled guilty three times, from 1927-32, to charges of "possessing and selling intoxicating liquor in violation of the National Prohibition Act." Pettofrezzo's nephew by marriage, Albert Rosellini""a young "progressive cut from the same cloth as Franklin Delano Roosevelt""led opposition in Washington state to Prohibition-era 'blue laws' and was elected to the state's senate in 1938, the same year FDR signed this pardon, serving until he became the state's 15th governor in 1957.This scarce official presidential document, signed by Franklin D. Roosevelt in his second term of office, pardons Louis Pettofrezzo, "also known as Louis Fritz," for the crime of "possessing and selling intoxicating liquor, in violation of the National Prohibition Act" on three occasions: in 1927, 1929, and 1932. Having paid fines and costs, and served a prison sentence from 1932 to 1933, in 1938 FDR signed this official pardon, additionally signed by his Attorney General, Homer Cummings. In 1932, the same year Pettofrezzo committed his third infraction and began his prison sentence, he married Fine Gasperetti Rosellini, widow of Seattle restaurant owner Vittorio Rosellini, whose brother Giovanni was the father of lawyer Albert Rosellini. Albert "went to work as an attorney in 1933. In that role, he forged lifelong ties to liquor distributors and tavern owners by representing them in challenges to Prohibition-era restrictions known as 'blue laws" (Seattle Times). He "considered himself a progressive cut from the same cloth as Franklin Delano Roosevelt," and was a senator in the Washington State Senate for nearly two decades before serving as the state's governor from 1957-65 (Washington Business Magazine).This official signed document reads: (print) "Franklin D. Roosevelt, President of the United States. To all to whom these presents shall come, Greeting: Whereas [typescript] Louis Pettofrezzo, an alien, also known as Louis Fritz, pleaded guilty in the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington to possessing and selling intoxicating liquor, in violation of the National Prohibition Act, and on October fourteenth, 1927, was sentenced to pay a fine of One hundred dollars ($100.00) and costs amounting to Twenty-one dollars ($21.00); and Whereas the said Louis Pettofrezzo pleaded guilty in the District aforesaid to possessing intoxicating liquor, in violation of the national Prohibition Act, and on May sixth, 1929, was sentenced to pay a fine of Five hundred dollars ($500.00) and costs amounting to Thirty-one dollars and twenty cents ($31.20 [sic]; and Whereas the said Louis Pettofrezzo pleaded guilty in the District aforesaid to possessing and selling intoxicating liquor, in violation of the National Prohibition Act, and on April eighteenth, 1932, was sentenced to imprisonment for eighteen months and to pay a fine of Seven hundred dollars ($700.00); and Whereas the said Louis Pettofrezzo paid his fine and costs in the first case and the fine in the second case; and Whereas the said Louis Pettofrezzo began his sentence in the third case on April twenty-second, 1932, at the United States Penitentiary, McNeil Island, Washington, was transferred on June seventh, 1937, to Federal Road Camp No. 5, Dupont, Washington, served his term, less good time allowances, and an additional thirty days due to his inability to pay the said fine, and was released on August third, 1933; and Whereas it has been made to appear to me that the said Louis Pettofrezzo since his release from imprisonment, had been conducted himself in a law abiding m.

        Chi sono, quanti sono, come si chiamano. Gli Ebrei in Italia. Tutti i cognomi delle famiglie ebraiche

      A.R.I.A. casa editrice, 1938. In 8, pp. 18. Br. ed. con lievissime mancanze ai piatti. Edizione originale di questo opuscolo di Schaerf che raccoglie in ordine alfabetico i nomi degli Ebrei italiani. Schaerf aveva pubblicato nel 1925 anche 'I cognomi degli Ebrei in Italia con un'appendice su le famiglie nobili ebree d'Italia'. Appare evidente la distorsione operata da questa edizione rispetto alla volonta' dell'autore - di origini ebraiche - di compiere uno studio meramente scientifico di tipo onomastico-storico sui cognomi degli Ebrei. A fugare infatti ogni dubbio in tal senso e' il testo che appare al contropiatto anteriore che recita: 'L'elenco che pubblichiamo fu compilato dall'ebreo Samuele Schaert [sic] sulla scorta dei dati esistenti presso il Keren Hajesod e puo' quindi considerarsi quasi come ufficiale. Esso servira' ad individuare i discendenti della nomade tribu' di Israele accampati nel sacro suolo d'Italia, ecc...'. Lo spirito del lavoro di Shaerf viene quindi stravolto, nel 1938, divenendo uno strumento di delazione per individuare - e quindi perseguitare - gli Ebrei italiani. La pubblicazione si inserisce d'altro canto nel solco di analoghi testi come quello di Carlo Barduzzi, Bibliografia ebraica e giudaica in lingua italiana con aggiunte dei cognomi portati dai Giudei residenti nel Regno, pubblicato sempre nel 1938, testo che - come ammetteva Dino Provenzal in una sua lettera - fu utilizzato dalle SS per compiere retate e persecuzioni.

        LA FAMILLE CARDINAL. Illustrée d'un portrait et de 32 monotypes en noir et en couleurs par EDGAR DEGAS

      Auguste Blaizot & Fils, Paris 1938. 1 volume in-4, broché, couverture à rabats imprimée en noir. 1 frontispice et 33 MONOTYPES D'EDGAR DEGAS interprétés à l'eau-forte par Maurice Potin : Portrait de l'auteur, 2 vignettes in-texte, 25 hors-texte en noir et 6 hors-texte en couleurs. Tirage unique à 350 exemplaires numérotés sur vélin de Rives. La seule véritable illustration de Degas pour un livre. Présentation : Les monotypes ont été dessinés par Degas en 1880 et devaient être reproduits en héliogravure pour l'édition du livre. Ce choix technique déplu à Halévy qui s'y opposa. Le projet fut abandonné... mais ressucita plus de 50 ans plus tard en utilisant la technique définitivement artistique de la gravure sur cuivre. Maurice Potin en utilisa les ressources les plus adaptées à Degas : verni mou, eau-forte et aquatinte. La réussite est incontestable, l'univers de l'écrivain et celui du peintre se confondent alors totalement. Bel exemplaire en excellent état, sous étui rigide cartonné.

A very warm and chatty letter from the then current writer of the Oz stories, Ruth Plumly Thompson was the next writer of the series after L. Frank Baum. The letter is very chatty on all things which were current in Oz, including the new titles. Thompson also discusses with the recipient her thoughts on the plays and films of oz, "The Wizard of Oz is being made into a musical and while I suppose they'll spoil and change everything--it may turn out better then we think. After that the Oz books will probably be used in animated cartoons--and that WILL be fun. I'm sorry Walt Disney could not get Mrs. Baum to let him have her ( hand written in the margin "husband's") books as he was interested in doing the whole set. But as she has sold ("her" crossed out and hand writtten in the margin " L. F. B's Mr. B has been dead as you know for quite awhile") books to another studio--mine will probably have to be sold to the same people." Thompson also talks about a role she played in a play as Ozma making her an "Princess of Oz." A very interesting letter containing lots of Oz gossip.

      (The Golden Eagle Press) n.d [1938], (Mt. Vernon, NY) - Folio (9-1/4" x 12-1/4") bound in full cream cloth with a gilt decoration on the cover, gilt lettering on the spine, and silk ties. Per the colophon: "This Archetype Edition of Sprig and Turfy is not only the first but unique in the history of the printed book. It is conveniently limited to one hundred and eight copies, each containing original paintings in water color over a key plate in black, printed by S. A. Jacobs." This is copy #49 of 108 SIGNED by the artist with his initials. Of the 15 plates, 13 are original watercolors by Roesch, an important artist of the book. For some unexplained reason, this quite stunningly illustrated children's story of a boy and his horse is not recognized in the primary reference of livres de peintres THE ARTIST & THE BOOK 1860-1960, although Roesch's later THE SONNETS TO ORPHEUS (1944), also published by The Golden Eagle Press, is listed as "one of the first modern American livres de peintres."

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Kirchstetten, 28. VIII. 1938.

      1938. 2¾ SS. auf 3 Bll. 4to. An den späteren Verlagslektor Hans Rössner: "Was da die Ausländer von uns als 'Barbaren' sagen - das stimmt schon. Aber die sehen nur das Offizielle. Dir wirklichen Kräfte zu sehn ist ihnen nicht beschieden. Und es gibt wirkliche Kräfte der deutschen Kunst, die es sich so schwer machen wie eh und je! Glaub nicht, daß ich einen Augenblick an der deutschen Kunst gezweifelt hätte! Wir Deutschen haben nur unendlich viel zu fressen, was uns die Vorangegangenen übriggelassen haben [...] Ich werde das, solange ich lebe, im Auge behalten. Ich werde mich bemühen, abseits von den 'Programmen' das zu tun, was ich für richtig halte. Ich werde in der Kunst nie etwas Gemeines tun. Ich werde im Gegenteil alles tun, um der Kunst wieder jenen Platz zu erobern, der ihr gebührt. Du, Herzenskamerad, weißt, daß die Kunst für mich Religion ist, und daß ich keine andere Religion kenne. Du bist ein studierter Mensch, und Du wirst das alles viel besser verstehen als ich, der alles nur aus seinem Gefühl hat. (Ich habe nie 'studiert'.) Allerdings bin ich in den antiken Sprachen und in den Vorstellungen der Antike mehr zuhause als viele Hochschulprofessoren. Dieses Wort des Stolzes soll aber keine Spitze beinhalten. Ich habe mehr als andere gelernt aus eben dem bekannten Minderwertigkeitsgefühl und wenn ich heute jeden Hochschulprofessor in bezug auf die Metrik und Rhythmik der Alten zu schlagen imstande bin, so nur deshalb, weil eine Liebe ohnegleichen sich durch 2 Jahrzehnte mit der Materie befaßte. Was Du mir vom Auslandsdeutschtum schreibst, ist packend. Du muß die Leute mit aller Leidenschaft zu den großen Dichtern hinführen. Blunck und Consorten gehören nicht dazu. Gib ihnen Claudius, Mörike, Hölderlin, Hardenberg; in unserer näheren Zeit Heym und Trakl; Rilke; (nicht so sehr George); gib ihnen in unserer nächsten Zeit Weinheber, (weil kein Dichter wie er so alles gesagt hat) [...]". - Bl. 1 rechts oben mit rotem Farbstift vom Adressaten markiert, Bl. 2 und 3 rechts oben korrekt vom Autor numeriert; geringfügige Altersspuren.
