Inscribed to the wife of New Yor Post columnist, Leonard Lyons, who was for many years one of New York's most prominent journalists. His column in the New York Post, "The Lyons' Den" was widely read and immensely popular during the many years since its commencement in 1934. Unlike many of his colleagues, however, Lyons was highly respected for his fairness and highmindedness. According to Ralph Blumenthal in STORK CLUB (Boston, 2000), "Lyons didn't believe in writing about romances and divorces. Nor, it was said, did he ever violate a confidence . He corresponded with world leaders and literary giants . " (p. 131); and he counted among his friends celebrities as diverse as Ernest Hemingway (at whose funeral Lyons was pallbearer), Marilyn Monroe, and Orson Welles.Maugham has inscribed the flyleaf: "For Sylvia Lyons / W. Somerset Maugham." Black cloth. Upper cover slightly stained, else very good, in soiled and chipped dust jacket [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        2 typed letters signed.

      New York and Pacific Palisades, California, 8 May 1949 and 21 Jan. 1950.. 8vo and 4to. Together 3 pp.. In English, both to Jerome Bengis, on imprinted stationery of the St. Regis: "Although I have myself recently become a musician of sorts, music is not really my field and as a critic of the type of book the author of which you are I am hardly competent" (8 May 1949). On 21 January 1950 he writes: "I have now occupied myself with your play, and although I feel on quite uncertain ground in the dramatic field, I dare say quite generally that your idea is original and its treatment effective and poetic in parts. Of course, the obstacles to a performance are quite obvious to me, for the Church more influential than ever in this country will certainly not tolerate the person of the Redeemer to be brought on the stage, even though the action takes place in pre-evangelic times".

        Presidential Oil Painting by Dwight D. Eisenhower of Wilton B. Persons III, grandson of his Chief of Staff and World War II comrade, Major General Wilton B. Persons. The portrait has an uncanny resemblance to Ike himself!

      The White House, n.d.. 19" x 23". "Original Oil Painting of Wilton B. Persons III, grandson of Major General Wilton B. Persons, painted by President Eisenhower in The White House, 15.25"" x 19.25"". Signed ""Eisenhower"" in the lower right. Matted and framed to 19"" x 23"". Fine condition.This portrait was painted by Eisenhower as a gift to Persons, his Chief of Staff, during his term of office at the White House. The Eisenhower Administration project at Columbia University refers to this painting and the study on the third floor of the White House where Pres. Eisenhower painted it.Accompanied by a printed image of President Eisenhower painting. In 2014, a slightly smaller 1949 oil painting by General Eisenhower of his wartime cottage south of London was estimated to sell for $100,000 to $150,000. As most of Eisenhower's paintings were of landscapes and buildings, his portraits are highly desirable, such as the oil portrait here offered depicting the grandson of his Chief of Staff.It is interesting to note that the portrait looks like a very young Eisenhower, something artists do at times subconsciously.Also included is an Eisenhower Typed Letter Signed to Major General Wilton B. Persons on gilt ""DDE"" stationery. Fine condition.TLS ""Ike,"" 1 page, 7"" x 10.25"". Gettysburg, Pa., November 30, 1962. To Major General Wilton B. Persons (""Dear Jerry"") about completing his memoirs. In part, ""The first volume of my memoirs is nearing completion. It includes my days at NATO in Paris and the first three years of my Presidency, ending on February 29, 1956, the day I announced I would stand for re-election. Since memory is a fallible thing, I am writing to ask if you would review certain of the chapters ... for me before the manuscript goes to press ...""ProvenanceMajor General Wilton Burton ""Jerry"" Persons (1896-1977) served as the White House Chief of Staff to President Dwight D. Eisenhower from October 7, 1958 until January 20, 1961 and was Eisenhower's representative in the transition of government between the Eisenhower and Kennedy administrations. He was a career United States Army officer who had entered the U.S. Army Coast Artillery in 1917 and advanced through the ranks to Major General in 1944.

      8vo. New York: Random House, 1949. 8vo, (8), 209pp. Title-page with tinted illustration in blue/grey. Original black cloth, grey dust-jacket lettered in white, lower cover with the iconic photo of Capote by Cecil Beaton. First edition, with the price present on the front d/j flap $2.75. Inscribed by Capote: ?For Mr. and Mrs. William Schimpf Truman Capote?. A miraculously fine copy, with the Rockwell Kent bookplate of Fred Adams whose sale catalog listed Capote?s first four books inscribed to the same couple, making one wonder if they were family friends or otherwise connected to Capote. Despite going from the recipients via Adams and at least one auction, through another owner to a bookseller in Brooklyn to a bookseller in San Francisco, the book is in virtually flawless condition.

        [Photo Album]: Diary and Photo Album of a Camp Fire Girl Troop Leader's trip to Les Courmettes, France

      Les Courmettes, France. July 23 - August 10, 1949. Oblong small octavo. Measuring 6.5" x 8.5". Prong-bound green wrappers with gilt stamped flowers on the front wrapper and handwritten "Les Courmettes 1949." A collection of 101 black and white and sepia toned photographs measuring 2.5 x 3.5 affixed to white pages and interspersed throughout with a diary of the trip. Very good with some tears and creasing on the wrappers. A diary augmented with snapshots and postcards from a Camp Fire Girls trip to Les Courmettes, France from July 23 until August 10, 1949. The trip is fairly early on in the tenure of the British Association which began in 1921 after the success of the American organization. The detailed journal and photographs provide a complete account of the travels of the girls from the point of view of Eda Banham, one of the young troop leaders with the group. Before leaving the girls saw Oklahoma at Drury Lane which Eda thought was "very futuristic and essentially American but a very good show." After making the crossing, they began their travels on a train to Paris, seeing all the sights of the cities including the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, and Notre Dame after which they were on their way to the South of France. Once there the girls set up an encampment, seen here in some snapshots. Eda writes, "at 9 pm we all gathered on the terrace with the international campers to partake in a camp fire... the French did not care to speak to us in English though we were quite aware that they spoke English better than we could speak French." The photos show the beauty of the South of France as well as girls posing in group photos in uniform, hiking, and performing plays for local children. "It was a party for the colony and we had been asked to entertain. The Rangers were worried and felt shy about performing." Towards the final days the photos are of happily laughing girls, shirtless men, and one particularly interesting photo of the troop hanging out of a jeep traveling along a dirt road in the woods. A wonderful assemblage relaying a complete look at Eda's trip. .

        Schriftsteller (1913-1960): Druckfahne (unterer Teil, 10 x 14 cm) einer von Hand des Autors stark veränderten Stelle seines Romans "Der blaue Kammerherr". Mit sehr zahlreichen eigenh. Korrekturen, Einfügungen u. Ergänzungen in Blau und Rot und 6 Zeilen eigenh., neuem Text am unteren Rand.

      Ohne Dat. u. U.,. . "Der blaue Kammerherr. Galanter Roman in vier Bänden" erschien 1949 bei Suhrkamp. Dieses Hauptwerk von Wolf von Niebelschütz spielt zur Barockzeit auf einer fiktiven griechischen Insel. Die antiken Götter sind noch aktiv. Da Prinzessin Danae sich dem erotischen Begehren von Zeus entzogen hatte, rächte sich der eifersüchtige Gott. - Unsere Druckfahne mit zahlreichen eigenh. Korrekturen ist der untere Teil des mit "93" bezeichneten Druckbogens, der in der EA zur S. 189 in Band I (in Kopie dabei) wurde. - // - Es geht an dieser Schlüsselstelle um das erste Treffen der Prinzessin Danae nach dem Attentat mit dem von ihr geliebten venezianischen Botschafter Don Giovanni. Dieser wurde tödlich verwundet, kann jedoch erst sterben, nachdem er die Prinzessin wieder gesehen hat. Um Zeus zu zeigen, was Stil ist, gibt er einen Ball im Schloss, wo er nach der Zerstörung seiner Villa durch das von Zeus inszenierte Erdbeben zu Gast ist. - Die Prinzessin ist von einer Corona von Elmsfeuer umgeben und "durch den Raum wehte eisiger Luftzug; Kerze nach Kerze verlosch." - Diese von Zeus verschuldete Peinlichkeit verhindert die bei Hof üblichen Zeremonien, weshalb der Minister sie persönlich empfängt. - // - Hier hat der Autor bereits bekannte oder zu selbstverständliche Textzeilen gestrichen, wie z. B.: "Der Graf jedenfalls war entschlossen, das Schweigen sogleich zu brechen" und gestrichen ist: "Dann eilte er, so weit im die Gicht, der infame Schmerz, das erlaubte, auf die Erbin der Krone zu, empfing, nach einem kurzen Blick aus Augen, in denen ein gewisses Erstaunen zu lesen war, ihre Hand und führte die Prinzessin zu einer zierlich geschweiften Möbelgruppe " - Von Hand ist folgender neuer Text (6 Zeilen) eingefügt: " Bleich und geringschätzig, wie neulich, als man dem Botschafter nieder stach, schritt der Kgl. Myrrh. Premier, durch eine lange Gasse schweigende Menschen, der Thronerbin entgegen. Es wurden keine Complimente gewechselt. Er empfing ihre Hand in der seinen - verneigte sich - einladende Geste der Linken ... [Punkte vom Autor] und während man freier zu atmen wagte, führte er den erhabenen Besuch, mit durchaus gemessener Würde, zu einer Möbel-Gruppe" " - // - Weiter über die Vorstellung des venezianischen Admirals Otello bei der Prinzessin "ungeachtet feuriger Phänomene". - Der Vergleich unseres Manuskripts mit der gedruckten Fassung (Kopie dabei) erlaubt einen wunderbaren Einblick in die Werkstatt des Autors.
