        An incredible find, the original 12 blueprints for the most important architectural marvel in history - Falling Water by Frank Lloyd Wright

      n.p, n.d These blueprints, to our knowledge, are the only ones known in private hands. They were discovered in Long Island by and came from Arthur Hennighausen according to a letter which is included in the group: "The shop drawings of the "Falling Water" steel sash were given to me as a professional courtesy at my architectural office in Waukegan Illinois by J. D. Graff who at that time was sales representative for Hope Windows, Inc. This was in the spring of 1938. No record was kept to further identify the time or place." These blueprints were obviously used and show signs of wear. On the back of one is penciled "F. L. Wright" and may or may not be in the famous architect's hand. Nevertheless, the value lies in the blueprints themselves as they are stunning representations of man's ability to create something truly beautiful and still have it coincide with nature.

      Country Life 1938 - First edition. Original pictorial paper covered boards in original glassine dustwrapper with printed card flaps. A superb, near fine copy, showing only trivial wear to the spine ends and corners and a prize label (to Paul Sharp) to the front pastedown, in a very good glassine with a couple of minor chips and two closed tears. An exceptional copy of a very fragile production. Cover illustrations and 24 full page colour lithographs by Eric Ravilious. Ravilious began work on his 'High Street' lithographs in 1935 following a suggestion from Helen Binyon that he do an alphabet of shops. He deliberately sought out odd shops with special and often Victorian visual appeal as inspiration for the work. With the addition of text from Ravilious's friend, Jim Richards, what was produced was one of the most famous and iconic illustrated books of the twentieth century. The New Statesman wrote that the designs were 'so gay and vivid that they surprise the reader like the shops themselves when they light up on a foggy morning'. The book was never reprinted because the original plates were destroyed in a bombing raid in 1942 (in the same year Ravilious, who was a captain in the Royal Marines and an official war artist, was killed in action). Notoriously hard to find in decent condition, as the publisher's pictorial boards are so fragile, and virtually unknown in its glassine complete with flaps. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        SWISS MISS (1938)

      MGM / Hal Roach 1938 - Vintage original 41 x 81" (102 x 202 cm.) three sheet poster style A, USA. Stan Laurel, Oliver Hardy, Greta Natzler, Walter Woolf King, Eric Blore, dir: John G. Blystone; Hal Roach / MGM. One of the finest of all posters by the legendary artist Al Hirschfeld. MGM employed Hirschfeld numerous times throughout the 1930s to design campaigns in his unique caricature art for several comedies, and particularly for the great comedy team of Laurel and Hardy. Operetta was combined with comedy in this story of two mousetrap salesmen who hope to strike it rich in Switzerland. They are swindled out of their money by a cheese maker and must work off their hotel debt. One way is by moving the piano of an operetta composer (whose chambermaid wife Ollie has fallen in love with) across a rope bridge over the Alpines, a bridge on which they meet a gorilla. Only Stan and Ollie could get into a mess like this. The locations were achieved by filming at Big Bear Lake and Lake Arrowhead, CA. On the poster with the boys is Greta Natzler, Austrian-born operetta singer who made a few films in Germany and England prior to this. This would be her only American film, and it would be her last. This is, needless to say, an extremely scarce poster, and when viewed in person its colors are really vibrant! On linen, NEAR FINE.

        Early Typed Letter Signed, 4to on "The Criterion" stationery, 4to London, July 8, 1938.

      - Eliot's best known work is his poem, "The Wasteland" (1922). His other well known poems include "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock," (1915) his first important poem, "Four Quartets" (1943) and his play, "Murder in the Cathedral" (1935). Eliot founded and edited the influential literary journal, "The Criterion," which provided a literary forum for many prominent contemporary writers. The journal did not attain financial stability until 1928 when it was steadily issued until 1939. This letter bears the letterhead of the journal. Fine in association to "The Criterion." In this period, Eliot wrote the play, "Family Reunion" (1939). He writes to Ossia Trilling of the Incorporated Stage Society responding to their selection of him to become a member. "On mature reflection.I must decline the proposed honour. I have already as many public associations as I can adequately cope with and I gave a strong objection to being a merely nominal member." He signs, "T. S. Eliot." [Joshua] Ossia Trilling (1913-94), Eliot's corespondent, was a theater critic and occasional theater director and actor. Connected with the Incorporated Stage Society, Trilling directed the British premiers of Auguste Strindberg's plays, "The Road to Damascus, " and "Queen Christina." [Attributes: Soft Cover]
