        ALS: 2 original letters from Julia and Paul Child to Richard Gildenmeister, with an original photograph and several newspaper clippings

      Two original letters from Julia Child, dated 1970 and 1976. The first, handwritten by Julia on stationary from the Barclay in Philadelphia and dated November 3rd (postmark indicates 1970), reads: "Dear Dick: Would that we were not so far away from you and Higbees, and from the Cleveland we saw so little of. Our warm welcome from all of you has made us sentimental about you, and we hope to come back again, stay longer, and feel that we can really have time to get acquainted. Please give our warmest remembrances to everyone, especially the Kordalski's, Strawbridges. Claudette, and all the good people in the book store. Our thanks to you, in particular, for first-class arrangements. Love from all of us to all of you. Paul + Julia Child". The second letter is typed on letterhead from the Ecole des Trois Gourmandes, dated April 2, 1976: "Dear Richard: We've just returned from 3 months in France, and I am enjoying your letter written I don't know when, but after we missed seeing you, to our most profound regret- remembering the good time we had with you some years ago. And now we most sincerely hope you are out of the ho0spital and perfectly all right- awful to be there having tests and not to know what the H. is wrong. We pray all is fine. You said you wanted an autographed book, so I am enclosing one of our paste-on slips, signed by both of us, that you can put in your copy. All is fine here with us, and spring is very slowly poking her lovely head out of the ground in the form of crocuses. Take good care of yourself, and congratulations on your new big job! Affectionately, Mrs. Paul Child". The letter is signed, simply, "Julia", and the mentioned paste-on slip is also included, a printed plate with a small illustration, inscribed in Julia's writing, "Bon Appetit- and all the best to Richard Gildenmeister", and is signed by both Julia and Paul. Included with this lot are a series of newspaper articles about Child, and an original 8 x 10 glossy silver gelatin photograph of Julia Child and Richard Gildenmeister at a book signing. Richard Gildenmeister is a renowned book dealer who maintained friendly correspondence with many prominent writers and celebrities through the late 20th century.

        In Pursuit: An Autobiography

      The Medici Society London: The Medici Society, (1970). Small folio. (266) pp. One of 1050 copies signed by Francis Russell Flint, the artist's son. This richly illustrated work covers the varied career of this Scots artist, perhaps best known for his work with the Riccardi Press. It was published on what would have been Flint's 90th birthday, in accordance with his wishes; but he passed away just five months shy of that milestone. This book has been specially bound by Elizabeth Greenhill in full blue Oasis, featuring her characteristic "cloud" design comprised of multi-colored onlays. Here, the onlays are turquoise, black, green, pale red, and gray. These are interspersed with small straight horizontal lines tooled in gilt. Spine title in gilt. A.e.g. Greenhill credits John Harthan with coining the term "cloud" to describe her most typical binding style. He notes that this treatment is most often given to poetry, and that the variations in design and color "establish the binder's personal reaction to specific texts." In the present example, which was bound in 1971, the small gilt lines streaking across both panels almost seem like a horizontal rain against these colorful formations. Very fine in morocco-backed folding case.
