        Between The Acts

      London: The Hogarth Press, 1941 First edition, first printing. One of 6,358 copies. Personal copy of author's sister Vanessa Bell, with her ownership initials "V.B." in blue ink to the front free endpaper. Publisher's bright blue cloth boards, lettered in gilt. Very good, with a slight lean, rubbing to the extremities, toning and light spotting to the spine, bright gilt, clean boards, a hint of spotting to the endpapers, pencil marks to list of works by the author, bright and clean pages. Housed in a custom quarter-leather clamshell box. Kirkpatrick A26a. Between the Acts was the last novel Virginia Woolf wrote, and the first volume to be published posthumously, only a few months after her death in March 1941. In his introductory note, the author's husband, Leonard Woolf, noted that while Virginia had completed the manuscript, she had not yet finished the text's final revision for the printer. In reference to her notorious, meticulous editing style, Leonard stated "She would not… have made any large or material alterations in it, though she would probably have made a good many small corrections or revisions before passing the final proofs." Between the Acts tells the story of a play within a play, set against the backdrop of a small English village in the years leading up to World War II. The text, which represents a rather cynical view of English history, makes the poignant claim that, while everything seems to be constantly changing, humans and their relationships with one another have not really changed much since the beginning of our history. As with much of her writing, the beauty of Between the Acts lies in Woolf's eloquent descriptions more so than in the plot itself. As Hudson Strode wrote in his 1941 review for The New York Times, "the cream…lies between the lines-in the haunting overtones… the best of the show…happens between the acts and immediately before the pageant begins and just after it is over. So the play is not really the thing at all. It is merely the focal point, the hub of the wheel, the peg on which to hang the bright ribbons and dark cords of the author's supersensitive perceptions and illuminated knowledge. It is in her imagery, in her felicitous gift for metaphor, for cadence, for exciting association, in her 'powers of absorption and distillation' that her special genius lies.". 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

      - STERLING BROWN TO THOMAS TALLEY CORRESPONDENCE, 1941. Three letters from Sterling Brown (acclaimed Black writer and Howard literature professor) to Prof. Thomas Talley of Fisk (Black literature scholar and author of "Negro Folk Rhymes") asking permission to quote from Talley's work in "The Negro Caravan" , a famous book edited by Brown and others and a landmark compendium of Black literature up to the 1940's. Apparently, the two literary titans could not agree since Talley wanted to publish his work separately but finally gave permission to have some of it appear in Negro Caravan. It was a tussle for a while however. A remarkable and important inside view of how the publication of Black literature was negotiated by Black scholars in the 1940s. The content is of surpassing interest and importance and is unlikely to appear again. VG (in postmarked envelopes with commentary in an undeterminable hand).

        Manuscript Letter Archive of Tanganyika and Egypt

      Tanganyika, Egypt, Palestine, 1941-1946. Manuscript letter archive of British RAF pilot officer, K.G. Tucker, comprising one photographic greeting card and 122 letters, 80 of which were penned in British East Africa, 15 in Egypt, 12 in Palestine, and 15 in England prior to departure, all addressed to his wife Margaret. Additionally, a single letter is sent from El Gedidia, Egypt, in 1945 from a colleague of K.G. Most letters are accompanied by their original postally used mailing envelopes with military censor stamps. Twenty are Royal post integral mailing leafs. One separate postal envelope, linen backed and bearing a special 3 pence stamp is purpose made for registration, dated 1944, stamped by RAF 93 censor from East Africa, and addressed to a Mrs. J. Curtis. The lot in very good condition, contained in an elegant wooden box with working lock and skeleton key. Mr. Tucker, RAF officer no. 159300, who's initials are K.G. but whom calls himself 'Tommy' write home 65 times in 1944, fourteen of these letters being written whilst in Egypt with the Middle East Squadron. The following year he writes 44 letters. Correspondence begins on the voyage to East Africa, continuing at Eastleigh RAF Station and Port Reitz in Mombasa, where he was posted for most of the two year period. Over and above the standard duties, of which he speaks very little, this officer is sent into the Great Rift Valley on at least two curious excursions with seemingly impossible missions. He flies to Egypt, and a couple of times to Palestine for training, lectures, and Italian language classes. He is also entrusted with a long list of leadership roles and participates in a rather learned discussion group. In the last few letters he is in a recovery hospital in Palestine. Particularly interesting is a 12 page letter, 16 July 1944, in which is described his first excursion into the Rift Valley, "a most awe-inspiring sight." His observations put into elegant words render a most spectacular visual image for the reader. Details include the contrast between hut villages and wealthy manicured neighbourhoods, husbandry, Indian corn and banana plantations, fruit, coffee cultivation, native reserves with lethargic African inhabitants, unusual flowers and a natural bird sanctuary, a dramatically varied landscape including a crest of extinct volcanoes. Here he also comes upon two wild game hunters who had caught a zebra and two buck. On 2 August 1944 he describes another journey into the Rift Valley in a 15 page letter, expounding on the remote military hut in which he stayed, how it was built, and on the hospitality of his unsuspecting host. This adventure took him between Naivarash and Dagoretti in search of a specific African man, along the way requesting the aid of an askari, a local police officer acting as interpreter, and a chief's son. Dispersed among jottings of his daily work, comrades, camp life, and the turmoil he suffers by hearing the news of flying bombs over London, Mr. Tucker documents fascinating observations, and gleanings from local inhabitants, all well written with exceptional enrapturing detail. In November 1944 he mentions the importance and impact of rain, as it was finally coming down, but would not be enough to save the coffee crops. He describes the potential for financial ruin when rain remains sparse for three or more years and tells the story of one farmer's loss from dry seasons thirty years prior, who lost his capital of £10,000 and subsequently pursued gold prospecting all over Africa. .

        A Pen Drawing by Robert Lenkiewicz of Assay Balances used in Alchemical and Chemical Processes, after a woodcut in an early edition of Georg Bauer's De Re Metallica. Lenkiewicz's drawing is undated, but was probably executed in the 1970s.

      - In blue ink on a sheet of white paper. The size of the immediate image and surrounds (as shown) is approx. 13 inches high x 8.5 inches wide (330mm high x 216mm wide). The size of the whole sheet of which this is a part is 15 inches high x 11 inches wide (381mm high x 279mm wide). Robert Oscar Lenkiewicz (1941 - 2002) was a renowned British artist, Hermeticist, and student of the alchemical arts, who was also well-known as an eccentric and book-collector. He was a regular visitor to the British Library and the British Museum, where he made careful sketches based on the illustrations and diagrams that were relevant to his studies that he found in rare alchemical manuscripts and books. This is one such drawing. It was kept by Lenkiewicz in a large folio entitled "On Alchemical Apparatus," and was evidently related to his personal researches into the subject, rather than being a "finished artwork" that was intended for exhibition or sale. As such it is not signed, although we do provide a guarantee and certificate of authenticity. The drawing is evidently after a woodcut in an early edition of Georg Bauer's De Re Metallica (On the Nature of Metals / Minerals) that was first published in 1556. It deals primarily with the subjects of the mining, smelting and refining of metals, and was also - for obvious reasons - much favored by those interested in Alchemy. There are two small holes punched in the extreme left margin, and a partial finger print (doubtless the artist's) in the upper margin, none of which effect the image area. There are also several small light brown discolored patches, and there is an ink smudge slightly to the left of and below the text in the bottom margin (visible in the attached photographs). There is a light crease across the center of the page. A little light creasing at the edges, otherwise VG condition.
