        MASSIVE ARCHIVE OF OVER 1550 ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPHS RELATING TO CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS, MAINLY IN LITCHFIELD COUNTY, CONNECTICUT, 1892 - 1951].

      [Mainly Waterbury, Ct. 1892-1951]. - Approximately 1550 sepia-toned or black-and-white photographs, most between 2 x 4 inches and 4 x 6 inches, a handful slightly smaller, some slightly larger, a handful of panoramas, and with about ten examples 8 x 10 inches. One cloth photograph album, two paperbound photo albums, numerous loose album pages, and the remainder of approximately 950 photographs loose. Some slightly faded, minor edge wear, a handful unevenly trimmed, almost all of the loose photos previously mounted, with adhesive and paper remnants on verso. A handsome and engaging assemblage. An amazing collection of vernacular photography, most detailing public works projects in Connecticut from the late 1920s through the 1940s. The earliest of the photos are housed in the cloth photo album, and date from 1892- 94, showing the construction of the Washington Avenue bridge and sewer system in Waterbury, Ct. and the construction of the Bethany Dam. In fact, the lion's share of the photos in the present archive come from Waterbury, Bethany, or other townships in Litchfield and New Haven counties. The majority of the images in the album focus on the Bethany Dam project, with additional shots of houses and other buildings presumably near the site, perhaps structures now lost in the wake of the dam's construction. Other photos show construction of a pipeline and a small pedestrian bridge. The next important series of photos, several hundred of them in fact, focus on the construction of the Shepaug Dam, which the city of Waterbury completed in 1933 to divert water from the Shepaug River to Waterbury city reservoirs. Over a third of the total number of photographs in the archive concern either the Shepaug or Bantam rivers, most with manuscript captions on the verso. Most of these photos show the construction of the dam, the Shepaug River Bridge, or the Bantam River or Morris, Ct. syphon tunnels. These photos date from about 1919 to the mid- 1930s, concentrated mostly around the late '20s and early '30s, when most of the construction was accomplished. There are also numerous photos of the power station and other related buildings around the construction site. The majority of the remainder of the archive shows road, bridge, and waterway construction from all around the Waterbury area, including a great many photos showing downtown Waterbury, and with numerous images of the construction or paving of roads like Watertown Avenue, Alder Street, Baldwin Street, or Lovers Lane near the Mad River Bridge, as well as the Shepaug River Bridge, the Bank Street Bridge, Turkey Hill Bridge, Sheffield Street Bridge, and the Silver Street Bridge over the Mad River. There is a striking juxtaposition of two photos in one of the paperbound albums, showing the South Main Street Bridge as it was in 1929 and as it was renewed in 1940, both shots taken from practically the same vantage point. The snapshots highlight the difference in bridge construction styles, the older showing the traditional trestle system common in the 19th century and then the sleeker, modern box girder style. There are a couple dozen images marking the period between the two bridges, showing the dismantling of the old and the rising of the new. The other paperbound album spotlights Chase Park, the Chase Parkway, and a bridge built over Sled Haul Brook. The images date from 1927-38, and reveal a landscape transformed from a rural park area to a modern parkway, complete with a brand new bridge. This series of about 100 photographs is particularly interesting for its depiction of the march of progress through a particularly scenic rural Connecticut area. Another series of over seventy photographs shows the construction of a pipeline along Great Brook in Waterbury from 1919-35. The photographs follow Great Brook at the Naugatuck River from South Main Street, along Elm Street, Meadow Street, and Brook Street to North Main Street. This selection of photographs, more than any other in the archive, shows people at work on the proj

Ambrose Vollard commissioned this project in the 1930's, the latter's death and World War II prevented completion until 1951.

But in his own work he followed another line of development." THE ARTIST & THE BOOK IN FRANCE p.330. Loose as issued in unsewn sheets in cream wrappers. Slight toning to portfolio vellum.

        The Mills of the Kavanaughs

      NY: Harcourt Brace. (1951). Lowell's third collection of poetry; his second collection, Lord Weary's Castle, won the Pulitzer Prize, and Lowell subsequently became the Poet Laureate of the U.S. He went on to win another Pulitzer Prize, a National Book Award, and a National Book Critics Circle Award. He taught at the Iowa Writers Workshop and later at Boston University where Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton were among his students. In the 1960s he was considered the most important and influential poet of his generation, particularly on the confessional poetry movement. This copy is inscribed by the author to a college classmate and his wife: "For Edgar & Janice [McGuire] with my usual great crisis of mind -- and end of an evening." With the recipient's bookplate just below the inscription. A nice, apparently contemporary, inscription in one of Lowell's early books. A near fine copy in a near fine, slightly spine-faded dust jacket. First Edition. Hardcover.

        Plain Murder

      London: Michael Joseph. 1951, 1951. FORESTER FAMILY COPY. 8vo. Reprint edition. Publisher's cloth in unclipped dustwrapper. Some moderate edgewear; very good. With signed ex-libris from the Forester and Troughton-Smith Family Archive to front pastedown. Inscribed by Forester to his nephew Stephen to front flyleaf: "To Stephen/ with best wishes from his reluctant uncle / C. S. Forester" Cecil Louis Troughton Smith wrote adventure stories under the pen name Cecil Scott Forester. Brought up in England, much of Forester's writing life was spent in California, a sufferer from arteriosclerosis and a partial invalid, sadly ironic for a man who had created one of the most distinctive and popular action heroes in the form of Horatio Hornblower. Forester married his second wife Dorothy, in 1947 and they lived in California until Forester's death in 1966. Having remained close to Forester's nephew; Mr. Stephen Troughton-Smith, who had a close relationship with his uncle, Dorothy eventually ended up living with Stephen and his family in Sussex after she became too frail to cope on her own. After her death in 1998 her Forester related books, correspondance and ephemera were bequeathed to Stephen Troughton-Smith who combined them with his own material to form the Forester Troughton Smith family archive. After his death the archive arrived in auction. Toovey's Auctioneers 21/02/2012

        A rare Harry Truman single page Autograph Letter Signed as President celebrating the Congressional Gold Medal of his Vice President, Alben Barkley

      Key West, March 7, 1951. 7" x 8.75". "Rare Autograph Letter Signed, ""Harry S. Truman,"" as President, 1 page, 7"" x 8.75"" on White House letterhead, Key West, March 7, 1951, to Jane Hadley Barkley (1911-1964) the second wife of Vice President Alben Barkley, concerning her note thanking him for personally awarding the Vice President the Congressional Gold Medal at a recent ceremony. Horizontal fold, else very fine condition. Truman writes, in full: ""I certainly appreciated your note about the presentation to Alben. I enjoyed the ceremony very much and so did he. You should have come down and joined the party. I'm getting a lot of sleep and sunshine - but it is already monotonous!"" On March 1, 1951, 38 years to the day after his first day in Congressmen, Barkely's fellow congressmen presented him with the Congressional Gold Medal in honor of his longtime service. As a surprise, Harry Truman emerged on the Senate floor to present the medal to Barkley. Truman also presented his Vice President with a gavel made from timber recovered from the White House renovation of 1949-1951. Barkley's first wife, Dorothy Brower Barkley, died in 1947 after a long illness. In July 1949, he met Jane Rucker Hadley, a widow about half his age from St. Louis, aboard the Presidential Yacht during a party hosted by Clark Clifford. The pair married on November 18, 1949, making Barkley the only Vice President to wed while in office. (Grover Cleveland holds a similar distinction as President.)"

        da Manet a Lautrec. Manet, Degas, Monet, Pissarro, Sisley, Renoir, Cezanne, Seurat, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec. With an original Renoir etching.

      Del Turco Editore, Firenze, Italy 1951 - 217 pages of text followed by [iv], 217 black & white plates. Full green Morocco leather binding by Giulio Giannini of Firenze (Florence) with an inlaid red leather spine label. There is minor shelfwear, including a number of tiny scuffs. Number 3 of a limited edition of 45 copies, signed by Lionello Venturi, with an original etching by Renoir tipped-in. The etching, which is unsigned, is titled "Baigneuse debout, a mi-jambes" and was printed in 1910 or shortly thereafter. It is in excellent condition, as one might expect being protected inside a book. There is only the first state of this etching (Delteil 23). There are at least three distinct impression categories depending upon when and the order in which they were printed. This impression is an early one, but not among the earliest, with a very good plate tone and maintaining very good detail in the dark areas. Later impressions lose detail and allow much more ink on the paper. The limitation page reads "Tiratura limitata a 45 esemplari numerati oltre a cinque fuori commercio. Copia No 3. L'incisione allegata a ogni copia e originale di Auguste Renoir." Previous owner's gift inscription on the front endpaper, that of Boston teacher and poet Antonio Alfredo Giarroputo.

Each are near fine to fine in excellent dust jackets. An very nice set, uncommon in such nice condition. David Ricardo became a stockbroker at the age of 21 and slowly became a recognized economic scholar in England. Though he retired at 42, he spent the following years of his life concentrating on his writing and research. "David Ricardo is without doubt the greatest representative of classical political economy. He carried the work begun by Adam Smith to the farthest point possible Ricardo, writing 50 years later than Smith, showed a greater insight into the working of the economic system In the opinion of his own contemporaries at home and abroad, Ricardo was acknowledged the leader of the science His most important work is On the Principles of Political Economy and Taxation, first published in 1817" (Roll, History of Economic Thought, 155-6).

        The Emigrants. A Novel. Translated from the Swedish by Gustaf Lannestock.

      - New York; Simon and Schuster, 1951. 21,5x14,5 cm. First edition, first printing. Publisher's cloth with printed dustjacket. The jacket is chiped and torn, spine ends are a bit bumped. Contents are fine. First US edition of 'Utvandrarna'. Inscribed: "To Kristina from the Author / Augusti 20 -- 1951." Vilhelm Moberg (1898-1973), Swedish journalist, social critic, and one of Sweden?s foremost authors of the 20th century. He was born in Algutsboda in the province of Småland, where his father served as a soldier. Moberg worked in his youth with farming and forestry. After a few years of schooling, he worked as a journalist at different provincial newspapers, in which he also published his first short stories. His breakthrough as an author came in 1927 with the novel ?Raskens. The Story of a Soldier?s Family?, where he depicts the life of the tenant farmers in 19th century Småland. His foremost work, which has been widely translated and is considered one of the finest epic works in Swedish 20th century literature, is ?The Emigrant Novels? (1949-1959). In this tetralogy he describes the Swedish emigration to North America through the story of the farmer Karl Oskar Nilsson and his wife Kristina. Moberg was politically engaged and always fought for individual rights, and for the abolition of the monarchy and the State Church of Sweden. He intervened in affairs of corrupt legal practice and published the bestselling book ?Why I am a Republican? (1955). His political views were inspired by his visits to USA and by the Swiss constitution. Moberg had a love affair with a woman named Kristina, whose name he used for the main character Kristina from Duvemåla of ?The Emigrant Novels? This love affair has remained unknown for over half a century, until a collection of his novels, all inscribed by Moberg to Kristina [Odelberg/Hedenblad (1917-2005)], appeared on the market. Judging from the tone in the inscriptions, the relation between Moberg and Kristina was initially intimate and loving, and gradually devolving into affection. In the early inscriptions from the 1940s Moberg writes, for instance: ?To Kristina, my confidant and beloved!?, and in the play ?Chastity? he writes: ?Vilhelm Moberg?s chastity ? what is left of it is hereby dedicated to Kristina? The later in-scriptions from the 1960s contain phrases like: ?with a devout greeting? and ?from her affectionate Vilhelm? In the copy of ?The Emigrants? (?Utvandrarna?, 1949) Moberg writes: ?To Kristina, my be loved, who has lent her name to the female main character in this book, with gratitude and love from The Author.? In the last inscription, in the pocket edition of ?The Emigrant Novels? from 1969, he returns to the fact that she has given her name to Kristina from Duvemåla, which shows that the thought of her had occupied his mind during all these years, and it is also a sign of her probable influence on his writing from 1945 onwards. What further strengthens this opinion is the copy of ?Our Unborn Son?, a play from 1945, which deals with the issue of abortion. This is the only one of these books that has been bestowed with a fine leather binding, with a pocket at end of the volume where Kristina has collected newspaper cuttings on the book and its author, suggesting that the theme of this novel was essential to her. The book was translated into Danish in 1947, and in the collection there is a copy of the Danish edition which has been inscribed to Kristina by the translator thus: ?? This book, which is partly about you?? [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter, signed, to Evan Gill

      1951. 2pp. on one A4 sheet. Letter from David Jones to Evan Gill, dated November 26, 1951, responding to Gill's request for information on a 1928 biographical note written by Eric Gill for one of Jones's exhibitions. Jones did not keep records of his own exhibitions and writes, "I can't remember any thing about it. That's the curse of it..." He lists a few likely sources, including exhibitions at the Beaux Arts Gallery and the Goupil. Footnotes give more information on the types of art displayed at these early exhibitions. Jones closes with a discussion of book publications -- Gill was approaching the end of his biography of his brother Eric, and Jones had submitted a book to the publisher (presumably The Anathemata, published in 1952). Usual creases from placement in envelope; else fine condition.

        The Mills of the Kavanaughs

      NY: Harcourt Brace. (1951). Lowell's third collection of poetry; his second collection, Lord Weary's Castle, won the Pulitzer Prize, and Lowell subsequently became the Poet Laureate of the U.S. He went on to win another Pulitzer Prize, a National Book Award, and a National Book Critics Circle Award. He taught at the Iowa Writers Workshop and later at Boston University where Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton were among his students. In the 1960s he was considered the most important and influential poet of his generation, particularly on the confessional poetry movement. This copy is inscribed by the author to a college classmate and his wife: "For Edgar & Janice [McGuire] with my usual great crisis of mind -- and end of an evening." With the recipient's bookplate just below the inscription. A nice, apparently contemporary, inscription in one of Lowell's early books. A near fine copy in a near fine, slightly spine-faded dust jacket. First Edition. Hardcover.
