        A Set of Eight China Dinner Plates with Black and White Wildfowl Designs by Lynn Bogue Hunt, with His Explanatory Legends on the Back

      n.p, ca. 1940. (HUNT, LYNN BOGUE) 6-1/4 inches in diameter. . These plates have been used to dine from, and there are occasional minute scratches, but they are fine overall, and ideal for display . On November 3, 1943, Lynn Bogue Hunt wrote to Eugene V. Connett, founder, proprietor, and, in 1942, liquidator, of The Derrydale Press: "...I have been decorating highball glasses, plates, and doing porcelains for a couple of years and with considerable success on a royalty basis". Looking at these exceptionally attractive and interesting plates, it is easy to see why. Hunt's ducks, pheasant, quail and other species are vigorously depicted in flight, with Hunt's caption and signature included on the front surface. On the back of each plate is shown a pair of the subject birds and a lengthy description (about 125 words) of their characteristics and habits, lettered and signed by Hunt. Despite numerous attempts by various practitioners, sporting art does not always translate well to other media, but with these plates Hunt has successfully combined form and function with elegance and style. A BEAUTIFUL SET

      [New York. ca. , after the original executed in 1839]. 1940 - Handcolored mezzotint engraving. The image is 19 1/2 x 13 1/2 inches, plus wide margins. Fine. This wonderful image is a mid-20th-century impression from a plate originally engraved by Charles Stuart in 1839, after a contemporary painting by John Gadsby Chapman. Davy Crockett (1786-1836), frontiersman, Indian fighter, and defender of the Alamo, is an archetypal hero of the early United States. From his activities as a scout for Andrew Jackson during the War of 1812, through his service in the Tennessee legislature and the United States House of Representatives, to his death at the Alamo in 1836, his fame grew ever larger. Chapman (1808-89) met Crockett in the early 1830s and executed a portrait study of him. After Crockett's death, Chapman worked the study into a full-length portrait. It was exhibited in the fall of 1838 at the Apollo Gallery in New York, an exhibition space that had been founded by a group of artists including Chapman. That painting was acquired by the state of Texas and hung in the capitol in Austin, where it was later destroyed by fire. Chapman painted another version of the portrait, which now hangs in the Harry Ransom Research Center at the University of Texas in Austin. The present engraving states: "New York. Published at the Apollo, 1839." A catalogue issued by the Apollo Gallery in October 1839 describes an engraved version of the present image. Charles Stuart was a mezzotint engraver working in New York at the same time. In the portrait Crockett stands in his buckskins, looking to his left, his right arm outstretched, holding his broad-brimmed hat. In his left arm he cradles a long rifle, and a knife is tucked into his belt. Three obedient dogs gaze up at him and he stands in a small clearing with a shock of wheat and some trees behind him. The original 1839 version of this print is so rare as to be unobtainable, and is lacking from most major institutional collections. The last we can trace for sale was one offered by The Old Print Shop on the front cover of the PORTFOLIO, in May 1963 for $200 (this at a time when the major Audubon prints were still in the three-figure range). A striking and lovely image of a central figure in the mythology of America.

        There Shall Be No Night

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1940 - Early reprint. Fine, in supplied, near fine, price-clipped dustwrapper. Full-page Inscription by the author to the subject of this Pulitzer Prize-winning play: "for Katherine Imbrie, who, starting with birth in New Bedford, Mass., has seen and suffered much the same kind of tragedy that comes to Miranda Valhoven in this play -- with all hope for a better world -- Robert Sherwood. January 1, 1941." Laid in is a letter from Katherine Imbrie to Benjamin Fairless, President of U.S. Steel, objecting to the broadcasting of the play on the U.S. Steel radio program in 1950 because of pending legal proceedings concerning "The Imbrie Incident." Attached is a typed memo from Mrs. Imbrie to William J. Walsh, Jr. concerning the proposed radio production of the play.The Imbrie Incident occurred on July 18, 1924, in Tehran, Iran. Then American Vice Consul, Robert Whitney Imbrie along with an acquaintance, Melvin Seymour, were attacked by a mob while visiting a public well in the center of Tehran. Though local police and soldiers were close by, they failed to render assistance and some even participated in the assault. Finally, the two Americans were taken away to a nearby police infirmary for treatment. The mob followed them and continued the attack until they finally killed Imbrie. Seymour was somehow spared. Later, the Persian government executed a lone soldier for inciting the mob against the two Americans (by claiming that Imbrie was a Baha'i, a religious minority persecuted in Iran) and awarded Imbrie's widow $60,000 for the loss of her husband.A quarter of a century later, Mrs. Imbrie was still involved in litigation regarding her husband's accounts. In her memo to Walsh, she wrote: "In answer to my letter objecting to the play Sherwood sent a copy of the book. His preface does not alter the fact that as a ghost writer for F D R he had access to the State Dept files which neither I Members of Congress nor the Attorneys acting for me while my husband's accounts were in litigation [had access to]".
