        Lord Weary's Castle

      69 pp., 8vo. The second edition, published a year after the first. With a very interesting autograph letter (c. 100 words, signed), thanking Miss Mary Taylor Moore of Greensboro, North Carolina for sending him significant documents relating to his mother's family. Written from Lowell's office as Poetry Consultant to the Library of Congress, the letter reads, in part, "Your documents came at the right time. The lady who fell off the cliff was my great aunt. Mother remembers her well, and how she used to tell fanciful stories. I'm so glad that you thought of sending all this to me" and concludes, "Tomorrow I finish my one year job here — a great flurry of packing, farewells and arrivals." Lowell writes his address at the top of the sheet as "Lowell/Lib. of Congress/Washington, D.C." and gives the date as "Sep. 15" (the recipient has added in pencil the year, 1948). Written on one half of an 8.5 x 11 in. sheet (now evenly tanned), the letter was originally folded twice to fit in an envelope; the blank half of the sheet has been taped to the front free endsheet of the book, and the tape has yellowed (also taped to the blank half of the sheet is the address, in Lowell's hand, clipped from the envelope). The written portion, however, is entirely free from tape and in very good condition save for a vertical fold in the center. The book itself has Miss Moore's ownership signature on front pastedown, and light tanning to pages, otherwise very good in a darkened and edgeworn jacket. Family history was a preoccupation of Lowell's that played an extremely important role in his poetry, especially in the early years, making this an especially fascinating document of personal and professional import.

        Collection of Vernacular Original Hand-Painted Posters for the American Legion Created by Girls

      [Sanford, Maine]: Sanford High School. [circa 1946]. 15 large and colorful hand-painted posters. Each is approximately 14" x 20". Poster paint on artists board. Variously there is some modest rubbing, light soiling, and edgewear, all of the examples are very good or better. 13 of the artists, each one a high school girl, have signed their work on the verso; two are unsigned. The art promotes American Legion themes: selling poppies made by disabled vets, the plight of disabled military personal (especially amputees), battle scenes, medical scenes, cemetery scenes; one represents a dove of peace clutching a poppy. It seems likely that all of the artists were girls who attended Sanford High School in Sanford, Maine (stated on all of the signed posters). A stark reminder that even on the home front each citizen, including high school students, is expected to play their part. Visually striking remembrances of the horrors and aftermath of war, remarkable to find altogether, and frankly, pretty wonderful. A complete list available upon request. .
