        Typed Letter Signed "Charles" with a handwritten postscript

      Darien, CT 1951 - 1 page, 11 x 8.5 inches, Scott's Cove, Darien, Connecticut, August 14, 1951. Written to Frederic R. Coudert, international law attorney and powerful political power broker, declining to attend a function due to a need to maintain his and Anne's privacy, in part: ".A certain amount of publicity almost invariably arises when we go to dinners or meetings, and we are most anxious to continue living quietly with our children. It is difficult to describe the relief it has been to us to be able to move about normally, to go to restaurants, theaters, etc. in the city without being recognized, pointed out, and pestered with requests for autographs etc. One loses contact with the essential elements of life when one is too constantly on newspapers pages." Lindbergh adds a handwritten closing: "I am extremely sorry that circumstances prevent our being with you that evening." Very good condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        JERUSALEM. The Emanation of the Giant Albion

      London: Trianon Press for the William Blake Trust, [1951]. 4to, (6), ix text, and 100 pochoir colorplates. Blue buckram, gilt title. Very good copy in a new slipcase. Limited to 516 copies. The definitive facsimile of one of BlakeÕs greatest works and the first of the magnificent series of facsimiles created by the Trianon Press of BlakeÕs illuminated books. The Preludium is by Joseph Wicksteed and the Bibliographical Statement by Geoffrey Keynes. Bentley 78. "Blake's etched copperplates, giving the text of his poem and the basis of the designs, were printed by him in a rich orange ink and were then illuminated by hand in water colours and gold. The etched base has now been reproduced by collotype in orange and the prints have then been coloured by hand by a stencilling process, so that the final result bears the closest possible resemblance to Blake's original plates. An average of forty-four applications of water colours was required for each full page illustration, of which there are four. Of the remainder, fifty-one have some text with designs filling half the page or more, and thirty-five have text with small marginal decorations.". (Introduction)

In addition Hirschfeld has drawn an ORIGINAL SELF-PORTRAIT incorporating the Simon & Schuster spotlight transforming it into a bass that he is strumming.
