In a fictional novel based on BBDO, The Virgin Queene, the Bruce Barton character named Barnham Dunn tried to explain his success Alex F.

During World War I, he worked as a volunteer for the United War Work campaign and there met another young writer Bruce Barton. He was married in Buffalo, Sept. 5,1916, to Helen, daughter of Edward Emerson Coatsworth of the city, a lawyer, and had five children: Katharine, Joan, Marion, Russell Barton,and Elinor. n 1919 Alex Osborn found the advertising agency of Barton, Durstine and Osborn, New York City with Bruce Barton and Roy Durstine.

It reached its climax in 1910 with the [German] publication of his architectural drawings in an extraordinary pair of portfolios." The young architect had come to Europe in 1909, invited by the German publisher Wasmuth and Professor Kuno Francke for the purpose of a cultural and "artistic interchange" (Sweeney, xv-xx). Buildings, Plans and Designs remained for many years virtually unknown in America, because a fire in 1914 had destroyed, not only Wright's home at Taliesin, but also that portion of the 1910 printing intended for American distribution. Wright authorized the publication of this edition in 1958, just a year before his death. Included are designs for 70 buildings and projects between 1893 and 1909, including the W.H. Winslow house (1893), the Unity Temple at Oak Park (1906) and the Frederick C. Robie house (1909), which "has generally been regarded as the finest of the Prairie Houses" (Roth, 463). "Entire schools of architectural design and thought were in many cases founded on individual buildings or ideas presented in this folio" (Sweeney). .

      Phoenix, AZ: Universal Science Foundation. Hardcover. 281 pages. Author signed and inscribed this copy to John Dumont upon front free endpaper. "In this presentation, it will be shown that all components within every system, including all primary measurable forms of mass-energy and all complex components derived therefrom, function perpetually in accordance with the laws of motion in absolute freely-moving-body environments. It will also be shown that the bonding forces of any structural frame of any particle are nothing more and nothing less than the stability that results from pure vector mechanics in equilibria, functioning as freely-moving, composite frames, and that the stability is conserved through the instant mutual exchange of kinetic-energy-momenta... Therefore, all events should be considered purely as mechanical phenomena, and should never be considered as general or abstract phenomena." - from Introduction. Includes over a dozen black and white figures. Unmarked. Moderate wear. Binding intact. Gilt lettering upon navy backstrip and front board moderately rubbed but remains legible. A sound copy. .

        On Her Majesty's Secret Service (a James Bond novel)

      London: Jonathan Cape. 1963., 1963. SIGNED LIMITED EDITION, only 250 copies. IAN FLEMING'S OWN COPY. Colour frontispiece of the author by Charles Amherst Villiers. Publisher's quarter vellum over black cloth. Gilt titles to spine. In original clear plastic wrapper. A fine copy, with one chip to the crown of the jacket. The only Signed Limited Edition of an Ian Fleming book. A FINE ASSOCIATION COPY, being one of the author's personal copies (he received the first ten), and then presented to his close friend Amherst Villiers, the illustrator of this volume. Villiers ended up with three copies of this edition- this copy, and an out of series copy both given to him by Fleming, plus a later numbered copy which he personally ordered from the publisher. We have purchased all three copies from the family over the years. This particular example was then givel by Amherst to his son Charles Churchill Villiers (and as such does not have the Villiers bookplate the other two possess). It does however benefit from a loose autograph note from Amherst 'I gave this book to Charlie... I have another copy. Pa' Sold with a copy of the original sales invoice, signed by Villiers. Amherst Villiers had two children, the late Janie Villiers and Charles Churchill Villiers, godson of Sir Winston Churchill. Both made the acquaintance of Fleming bibliographer Jon Gilbert of Adrian Harrington Ltd., who interviewed them whilst researching the book. The Villiers family home was just a short walk from Harrington's bookshop in Kensington. Published in 1963, this is the second part of a collection of James Bond books that has become known as the 'Blofeld' trilogy, sitting between Thunderball (1961) and You Only Live Twice (1964). The title was filmed by Eon Productions in 1969, starring George Lazenby as 007, Diana Rigg as Tracy and Telly Savalas as Ernst Stavro Blofeld. Directed by Peter Hunt, with a terrific storyline and slick script from the ever-reliable screenwriter Richard Maibaum, O.H.M.S.S. features superb action, spectacular locations, a marvelous John Barry score, and, in Contessa Teresa de Vicenzo (aka Tracy, aka Mrs James Bond), probably the greatest Bond Girl of all time. The movie, unlike most in the series, was faithful to the original Ian Fleming novel and is a fine thriller; one of the grittiest movies of the series. Gilbert A11a.

        Dinner plate of the Kennedy couple, by Limoges, made for them to mark the occasion of their celebrated 1963 visit to Paris, where the President famously remarked "I am the man who accompanied Jacqueline Kennedy to Paris!"

      France, [1963] Jacqueline Kennedy approved Renoir Limoges dinner plate for the First Couple's 1963 Paris visit. President John F. and First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy visited Paris in May 1963. Gifts were prepared and given to mark the occasion. The First Lady received a set of Limoges china with hand-painted floral designs after paintings by Pierre Auguste Renoir (a known ceramist) - receiving three "specimen" or example plates from the service for approval. The set included dinner, salad and dessert plates ranging in size from 7.5" to 9.5". They are "certified" as being number one out of an edition of one hundred. According to the agent for this Limoges china, the plates were made by George Boyer of Limoges, and to be marketed by the Galerie Urban in Paris; however, the examples were not produced for the general public, making the plates from this set most likely unique. The plate is inscribed on the verso: "Specimen Du Service Offert a Mme. Jacqueline Kennedy en Mai 1963" (Example of the service offered to Mrs. Jacqueline Kennedy in May 1963). Excellent, unused condition.

The book is in near fine condition with minimal normal wear. The jacket is very good with normal rubbing and wear, including a few spots to rear panel and a tiny closed tear at head of spine.

        A Collection of Original Press Releases for the March On Washington for Jobs and Freedom, 1963

      Various. 1963. A collection of 20 original press releases issued for the landmark August 28, 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, all gathered by a journalist who attended the event. The advanced text of the remarks of all of the important speakers are represented here, and according to one informed source, this represents all press releases that were issued at the March. It should be noted that the advance text of the speech of Dr. King does not include the "I Have a Dream" segment, which was delivered extemporaneously. According to most accounts, singer Mahalia Jackson was sitting behind King during his speech, and in a low voice encouraged King to "tell them about your dream." All but one of the releases were printed by mimeographed or ditto processes and would have been issued in relatively few numbers. While it is unknown how many were produced, several people involved with the March have suggested that no more than 200 copies of each release was prepared, and almost certainly most of these were discarded. All of the press releases are in fine condition (the two very minor exceptions noted in the itemized list below). Presumably, at this late date, it would be nearly impossible to accumulate a complete set of these press releases from perhaps the most important day in Civil Rights History. 1.

        The last supper! A dinner plate from President Kennedy?s last Official Dinner, four days before his assassination

      [Miami, FL] Dinner plate, 10.5? diameter. Navy blue bordered in gilt, with the U.S. presidential seal in gilt in the center in a 2.75? white circle edged in gilt. Encircling the presidential seal are, in gilt, the coats of arms of 14 member states represented in the Inter American Press Association which held its 19th Annual Assembly at the Hotel Americana in Miami, Florida, November 16-22, 1963. Imprinted on the cream white underside, in olive green, ?Syracuse / China / 93?G U.S.A.? Syracuse China is today still one of the world?s leading suppliers of commercial china for the foodservice industry. Fine condition.This plate was produced especially for the ?Dinner of the Inter American Press Association in honor of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy? held at the Hotel Americana in Miami Beach on November18, 1963. It was to be President Kennedy?s last official dinner. He did make an appearance at a testimonial dinner for Congressman Albert Thomas in Houston on November 21, 1963. President Kennedy was scheduled to speak at a Democratic fundraising dinner in Austin on Friday evening, November 22nd.In his November 18th address (copy included), President Kennedy spoke of Cuba and the future of the western hemisphere. In part, ?Castroism, which a few years ago commanded the allegiance of thousands in almost every country, today has far fewer followers scattered across the continent. Experience in China, the Soviet Union, and in Cuba itself has revealed that the promises of abundance under tyranny are false. We ourselves can prove that democratic progress is the surest answer to the promises of the totalitarians. ?These are the many fronts of the Alliance for Progress. The conduct of those fronts, the steady conquest of the surely yielding enemies of misery and hopelessness, hunger, and injustice is the central task for the Americas in our time. But no sense of confidence, of optimism in the future of the hemisphere as a whole, can conceal our feelings at the self-inflicted exile of Cuba from the society of American Republics. The genuine Cuban revolution, because it was against the tyranny and corruption of the past, had the support of many whose aims and concepts were democratic. But that hope for freedom and progress was destroyed. The goals proclaimed in the Sierra Maestra were betrayed in Havana.
