        Collection of Correspondence from Pin-Up Artist Alberto Vargas

      1944-1973. A collection of 12 letters, cards, and publicity photos from Alberto Vargas and his wife, Anna Mae Clift, to a devoted collector, including an Autographed Note Signed ("Alberto") and three Christmas cards Signed with his stylized signature, fine. The letters and notes begin in 1961 and end shortly before the passing of Clift in 1973, a death from which Vargas never truly recovered. The letters are in response to complimentary notes sent by the collector to Vargas and include many references to his work. Each is composed with warmth and they include details about the couple's personal lives including Vargas's experience judging the Miss Universe contest and his lawsuits against Esquire magazine. (The magazine successfully laid claim to the term "Varga Girl" as well as the "Varga" signature, and the legal costs forced him to struggle financially for years until his 1960s "Vargas Girls" work for Playboy.) One of the Christmas cards includes a note from Vargas gifting the collector an unpublished original piece of artwork for being a "staunch defender and protector of 'my girls'"; a gift that sadly no longer accompanies the letter. The correspondence also includes five glossy publicity photos from World Wide Photo, dated between 1944-1949, showing Vargas with Clift, working at his drawing table, and with various models, along with the original prepared captions tipped on the verso. Several of the letters are written by Clift and one includes a comment about Vargas's devotion to his work: "He is truly a remarkable person. But without his work he would be lost." It's a particularly poignant thought from his wife, whose death left him devastated and ended his career. Further details available upon request. An interesting and thoughtful collection of correspondence and photos from one of the greatest pin-up artist of the 20th Century, and the wife who inspired his work. Further details available upon request. .

        THE BEDCHAMBER MYSTERY. With which is included the story of The Eleven Deckchairs and Modernity and Maternity.

      S.J. Reginald Saunders, Toronto 1944 - True First & Only Edition. 8vo. 70pp. A superb copy, quite fine, in the publisher's original pictorial paper-covered-boards which are fresh & free of the usual edgewear & cracking endemic to this title - Upper cover illustrated in gray & navy, lettered in blue at the spine - In a truly amazing & beautiful example of the original pictorial dustwrapper [published slightly oversized & therefore prone to heavy wear] - this copy virtually flawless - the dustwrapper illustration & design a match for that of the binding. One short closed tear, a touch of use at the corners, otherwise truly spectacular. Forester's only mystery. The best copy we've seen in 20 years & perhaps the nicest copy available anywhere as this title usually turns up in poor shape because publisher Saunders' wartime production made use of rather cheap materials that had very little staying power.
