        Archive containing manuscripts, correspondence, and original illustrations by Pulitzer Prize-winner Oliver Waterman Larkin

      1970. A nice archive of Oliver Waterman Larkin (1896-1970, notable American art historian and educator), containing a collection of material by him and concerning the Pulitzer Prize which he won for his Art and Life in America (NY: Reinhart & Company, 1949). Included are the telegram awarding him the Pulitzer, 2 manuscript stories with original illustrations by him (many of which are signed), his original 1922 Italy sketch book, and original retained letters to him by a number of notable correspondents. The archive includes: · 22-page autograph manuscript fair copy of The Adventures of Columbine inscribed "To Columbine Herself, O.W.L.", being a large-format (15"x12") handwritten tale, dated 1919, with several pages of costume drawings done by Larkin in color pencils (stitching a little loose); · 20-page autograph manuscript faircopy of Francis Hopkinson's poem "The Battle of the Kegs" with original signed illustrations by Larkin, likely unpublished, as such; · 52-page autograph manuscript essay (with text on the rectos only) by Larkin dated 1918 titled The Influence of the Medieval Mystery Play Upon Contemporary Art, a work presumably written by him while he was at Harvard and containing a number of pencil sketches by Larkin of classical themes; · 60-page sketchbook, about two-thirds filled with pencil sketches and drawings by Larkin (presumably while in Italy) with the notation at front that it was purchased in Italy by him in 1922 and with his address while there (c/o American Express in Firenze), the sketches being mostly of an architectural and landscape nature, as well as local characters who caught Larkin's eye as interesting, noteworthy, or occasionally humorous - most of the drawings are identified. Two of the rear pages contain some notations on Larkin's travel itinerary and expenses. Larkin's talent as an artist is here very evident as he captures the essence of the Italian country and cityscapes; · the original Western Union telegram addressed to Prof. Oliver W. Larkin at Northampton, Mass. dated May 1, 1950 from Grayson L. Kirk, Provost of Columbia University stating "On Behalf of President Eisenhower I have the honor to advise that University Trustees have awarded the Pulitzer Prize to Art and Life in America for Distinguished Book on History…"; · congratulatory letters from Herman Baron, Director of ACA Gallery, New York; · a copy of a letter sent to Francis Brown, Editor of the New York Times by Lloyd Goodrich, Assoc. Director of the Whitney Museum, protesting a review of Art and Life in America in the paper, as well as Goodrich's original signed letter with respect thereto; · a congratulatory letter to Larkin from Newton Arvin; · letter signed to Larkin complimenting Art and Life in America from Erwin O. Christensen, Curator of the National Gallery of Art; · original letter signed from Robert Edmund Jones (1887-1954, American scenic, lighting, and costume designer credited with incorporating the new stagecraft into the American drama) referring to some of Peter Larkin's (Oliver Larkin's son) drawings and expressing his views regarding Pete Larkin's creative abilities; · Letter from James Thrall Soby (author, critic, connoisseur, collector and patron of the arts) regarding Peter Larkin's work · letter to Oliver Larkin and enclosing a not-present copy of a recent paper by artist Irene Rice Pereira with a request for Guggenheim reference; · 16 stanzas of typewritten verse, "S.F.B. Morse Sits for his Portrait at Locust Grove" dated 1961; · a copy of The Heart of a Clown, a repertory play, with the ownership signature of Ruth Lily McIntire, who later became Larkin's wife; · a copy of Bill Baird's "L'art des Marionettes" with a flyer for "The Oliver Larkin Puppets Program" affixed to the front pastedown and giving the details of the same, and with the inscription of performers "From the Admirateurs of 'Lark' and Georgie Shaw" signed by the performers on the front free endpaper and dated April 1970, just months before Larkin's death. A number of other ephemeral pieces are included as well. The condition of most items in the archive is about very good overall, with some edge wear and soiling of the older materials. The contents of the original works and letters are very good.

        Jean Nouvel, 2 Bde.: Complete Works 1970-2008 [Englisch] [Gebundene Ausgabe] von Jean Nouvel (Autor), Philip Jodidio (Autor) Jean Nouvel ist ohne Zweifel der originellste und wichtigste zeitgenössische Architekt Frankreichs. Von 1967 bis 1970 war er Assistent von Claude Parent und Paul Virilio, bevor er sein eigenes Büro in Paris gründete. Das Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris (1981-87, zusammen mit Architecture Studio) war sein erstes von den Kritikern gefeiertes Projekt. Seitdem hat er das Opernhaus in Lyon (1968-93), das Euralille Einkaufszentrum in Lille (1991-94) und die Fondation Cartier in Paris (1991-94) fertiggestellt. Zu seinen bedeutendsten vollendeten Projekten seit dem Jahr 2000 gehören unter anderen das Musik undKonferenzzentrum in Luzern (1998-2000), der spektakuläre Torre Agbar auf der Avenida Diagonal in Barcelona, der Anbau des Museums Reina Sofia in Madrid (1999-2005), das Quai Branly Museum auf der Seine in Paris (2001-06) oder das Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Jean Nouvel gewann im Jahr 2001 die Goldmedaille des RIBA (Royal Institute of BritishArchitects) und 2008 den Pritzker Preis.

Jean Nouvel has well earned his acclaim as one of France's most talented architects working today. One of his most recent professional honors was achieving the 2008 Pritzker Prize. Now the best of his work is showcased in "Jean Nouvel by Jean Nouvel: Complete Works 1970-2008", an impressive, two volume, 896-page compendium that he designed himself and which is also the truly impressive result of a five year collaborative project with architectural author and editor Philip Jodidio. Here displayed with expert and insightful commentary is a seminal monograph on the man and his work that is as informed and informative as it is thoughtful and thought-provoking. A seminal and comprehensive body of work, "Jean Nouvel by Jean Nouvel: Complete Works 1970-2008" is a very highly recommended core addition to professional and academic Architectural Studies reference collections and supplemental reading lists. Two amazing books of architecture that valorize the work of architect making visual reading becomes a unspeakable journey which we have no desire to stop. The printing and finishing are perfect. A real object of desire. Philip Jodidio, geb. 1954 in New Jersey, studierte Kunstgeschichte und Wirtschaftswissenschaften in Harvard.

        Archive containing works with original illustrations [many signed] by Pulitzer Prize-winner Oliver Waterman Larkin

      1970 - A nice archive of Oliver Waterman Larkin (1896-1970, notable American art historian and educator), containing a collection of material by him and concerning the Pulitzer Prize which he won for his Art and Life in America (NY: Reinhart & Company, 1949). Included are the telegram awarding him the Pulitzer, 2 manuscript stories with original illustrations by him (many of which are signed), his original 1922 Italy sketch book, and original retained letters to him by a number of notable correspondents. The archive includes: (i) A handwritten copy of The Adventures of Columbine inscribed "To Columbine Herself O.W.L.", being a large-format (15"x12") handwritten tale, dated 1919, 22 pages and with several pages of costume drawings done by Larkin in color pencils (pages are loose); (ii) a 20-page autograph manuscript copy of Francis Hopkinson's poem "The Battle of the Kegs" with original signed illustrations by Larkin, which copy, as far as we can tell, is unpublished in this form; (iii) 52-page handwritten essay (with text on the rectos only) by Larkin dated 1918 titled The Influence of the Medieval Mystery Play Upon Contemporary Art, a work presumably written by him while he was at Harvard and containing a number of pencil sketches by Larkin of classical themes; (iv) a 60-page sketchbook, about two-thirds filled with pencil sketches and drawings by Larkin (presumably while in Italy) with the notation at front that it was purchased in Italy by him in 1922 and with his address while there (c/o American Express in Firenze), the sketches being mostly of an architectural and landscape nature, as well of presumably local characters who caught Larkin'ss eye as interesting, noteworthy, or occasionally humorous - most of the drawings are identified. Two of the rear pages contain some notations on Larkin's travel itinerary and expenses. Larkin's talent as an artist is here very evident as he captures the essence of the Italian country and cityscapes succinctly and accurately; (v) the original Western Union telegram addressed to Prof. Oliver W. Larkin at Northampton Massachusetts dated May 1, 1950 from Grayson L. Kirk Provost of Columbia University stating "On Behalf of President Eisenhower I have the honor to advise that University Trustees have Awarded the Pulitzer Prize to Art and Life in America for Distinguished Book on History"; (vi) congratulatory letters from Herman Baron, Director of ACA Gallery, New York; (vii) a copy of a letter sent to Francis Brown Editor of the New York Times by Lloyd Goodrich, Assoc. Director of the Whitney Museum, protesting a review of Art and Life in America in the paper, as well as Goodrich's original signed letter with respect thereto; (viii) a congratulatory letter to Larkin from Newton Arvin; (ix) original letter signed to Larkin complimenting Art and Life in America from Erwin O. Christensen, Curator of the National Gallery of Art; (x) original signed letter from Robert Edmund Jones (1887-1954, American scenic, lighting, and costume designer credited with incorporating the new stagecraft into the American drama) referring to some of Peter Larkin's (Oliver Larkin's son) drawings and expressing his views regarding Pete Larkin's creative abilities; (xi) Letter from James Thrall Soby (author, critic, connoisseur, collector and patron of the arts) regarding Peter Larkin's work (xii) original letter to Oliver Larkin and enclosing a not-present copy of a recent paper by artist Irene Rice Pereira with a request for Guggenheim reference; (xiii) typewritten 16 stanzas of verse, "S.F.B. Morse Sits for his Portrait at Locust Grove" dated 1961; (xix) a copy of The Heart of a Clown repertory play, with the ownership signature of Ruth Lily McIntire, who later became Larkin's wife; (xx) a copy of Bill Baird's "L'art des Marionettes" with a flyer for "The Oliver Larkin Puppets Program" affixed to the front pastedown and giving the details of the same, and with the inscription of performers "From the Admirateurs of 'Lark'

        Richard Nixon as President, writes a politically reflective TLS to Jack Dreyfus, founder of the Dreyfus funds

      Washington, DC, December 5, 1970. 6.75" x 8.75". "Single page TLS, 6.75"" x 8.75"", dated ""December 5, 1970"" on White House Stationary with the embossed seal to top. Signed by Richard Nixon as ""RN"". Accompanied with the original White House envelope, however not postmarked appearing as perhaps a hand delivered letter, 7"" x 4.25"". Expected center fold else fine condition. Accompanied by what appears to be a typed copy on tissue paper of Jack Dreyfus' response to Nixon's letter, 8.5"" x 10.75"" with faint crease, unsigned, but dated January 12, 1971.Richard Nixon TLS to Jack Dreyfus, composed while President. Nixon had a longterm relationship with Dreyfus, who is considered the 2nd most significant money manager of the last century. Dreyfus had contributed heavily to Nixon's campaigns both in 1960, and in 1968 and met frequently with Nixon. In Richard Nixon's letter to Dreyfus, the President enclosed a group of collected speeches as ""a token of my appreciation for the important contribution you have made toward the cause of good government"" and he noted ""I thought these collected speeches might serve to point out the paths this Administration is taking to achieve the goals all of us are seeking -- for our country, for ourselves, and for our children."" The set includes Jack Dreyfus's response to Nixon's letter whereby aside from thanking him for the ""book containing your speeches"", he also extends his home on Minot's Island to Nixon for vacationing and notes ""We have scraped a piece of land level so that a helicopter can land there"". A significant letter by Dreyfus as it turned out Nixon would take him up on his offer and frequent Minot's Island quite often, including conducting business both on the phone and in person from the Dreyfus compound. Richard Nixon's relationship with Jack Dreyfus became highly controversial years later as it has come to light a drug Dreyfus had taken for himself to cure him of Depression, which Dreyfus heralded as a ""wonder drug"", was offered directly to Nixon by Dreyfus to assist him with his mood disorders, depression, anxiety and stress. In the recent published book, Arrogance of Power, referenced allegations which revealed interviews with Nixon’s former psychotherapist, Dr. Arnold Hutschnecker, who counseled Nixon for decades and considered the president to be “neurotic.” “Everyone has their share of neuroses, but there is indeed significant evidence in the presidency, well before Watergate, that Nixon on occasion behaved in a way that to ordinary people was simply not normal” and that ""Concern for Nixon’s mental state was so great, Summers writes, that Secretary of Defense James R. Schlesinger ordered the military not to react to orders from the White House unless they were cleared by him or the secretary of state."" It was also known Nixon consumed large quantities of a particular drug without a prescription, the drug Dilantin which was provided to him by Jack Dreyfus.Jack however had no medical qualifications however he credited Dilantin with relieving him of chronic depression almost overnight, and he had become the leading advocate of it as a panacea for all manner of ailments. In the book, Arrogance of Power, it was confirmed that at a meeting between Nixon and Dreyfus in 1968 at Key Biscayne, Dreyfus told the author of the book that Nixon had said ""Why don't you give me some Dilantin? "" So he (Dreyfus) thought, ""What the heck, he's (going to be) President of the united States. I can't get in trouble … So I went out to the car and got a bottle of a thousand and gave it to him. A few days later he called me and said 'Is it all right if I take two a day?"" I said, ""Yes I think so"" When the author asked what Nixon wanted the Dilantin for, Dreyfus was vague. ""Nixon"", he said ""had a lot of things … worries"". At one point when Dreyfus suggested that the president should perhaps get the medication from a doctor, to which Nixon had said, ""To heck with the doctor""The two continued frequent correspondence and met quite regularly both in the White House for business, but also socially and the reader can see in this letter Nixon's overall gratitude to Jack Drefus for his ""contributions"".A fantastic letter between Nixon and Jack Dreyfus, an important, significant figure in Nixon's life."

        The Memoirs, being his experiences in World Wars I and II, together with some other matters. For the Westropp family records.

      Chilham, Kent: For the author, 1970 - Octavo. Original full sheep, red morocco label, edges sprinkled red, black endpapers. Westropp armorial bookplate mounted on the front pastedown. First and only edition, limited to 50 signed and numbered copies, this number 9 of the first 10 which were bound in leather, this copy with personal inscription; "To Cupid [Colonel A. W. Valentine C.B.E., D.S.O.] In remembrance of some amusing and not so amusing occasions" Westropp served with Valentine in the Devons in WWI. Inevitably uncommon, Copac has BL, King's and IWM only, OCLC adds copies at the universities of Calgary, Kansas and Nebraska. Extraordinary life-story of a genuinely extraordinary man. "The bearing of Monty Westropp in situations of extreme peril when the spirits of many around him were downcast is graphically epitomised in the recollections of the Canadian historian Walter Lord in his book The Miracle of Dunkirk: ''The long shadow of tradition was now very much in evidence. When Colonel Lionel H. M. Westropp ordered the 8th King's Own Royal Regiment to head down the beach towards the mole he first assembled his officers. He reminded them that they wore the badge of one of the oldest regiments of the line. 'We therefore will represent the regiment as we march down the beach this afternoon. We must not let it down ' As Lord recalls, the battalion set off in perfect step, arms swinging in unison, rifles correctly slung and in immaculate marching order. It was a sight which put fresh heart into the many fearfully battered and demoralised units who witnessed it" (obituary, The Times 5 February, 1991). Commissioned into the Devonshire Regiment in April 1915, within a year he was commanding a company at the Battle of the Somme, all of his senior officers having been killed; "Many brave men cracked but Westropp never flinched from even the most appalling decisions. On one occasion a major in an adjacent unit was fleeing, terrified, to the rear and causing general panic among the soldiers around him. Without hesitation Westropp, then a mere 2nd lieutenant, drew his pistol and brought the officer down. Westropp then called his sergeant major to him, and together they reformed their shaken company and turned their faces towards the enemy in front". In the rear rest areas he became notorious for "performing energetic Cossack dances on restaurant tables, accompanied by his Russian girlfriend, Olga". Between the wars a spell in India allowed him to indulge his passion for polo and tiger and boar hunting, he also distinguished himself as an army fencer. From 1933 to 1936 he commanded the army's anti-gas unit, and compiled the relevant manuals, and in 1939 he raised a new battalion of the 8th King's Own, leading it as part of the BEF during the Blitzkrieg and through Dunkirk. He was later on Malta, where during the siege his battalion became known as "Westropp's Own", "So complete was his identification with it". He survived a torpedo attack off the coast of Tunisia, subsequently serving on the staff for the invasion of Sicily, but "turned down a later offer of staff training, quite correctly believing his métier to be that of regimental soldiering. Indeed, in spite of a sometimes alarming demeanour, he inspired intense loyalty among all ranks under him Above all his attitudes to life were influenced by his having survived the First World War when virtually all his school friends and regimental colleagues perished". Lengel 921.

        Â‘The Empire TrilogyÂ’ [Comprising ‘TroublesÂ’/Â’The Siege of KrishnapurÂ’/Â’The Singapore GripÂ’] First UK Editions 1970-1978

      Cape/Weidenfeld Nicolson, 1970 A set of first edition, first printings published by Jonathan Cape and Weidenfeld and Nicolson between 1970 and 1978. All three novels by Farrell, constituting The Empire Trilogy, are generally considered only to be connected thematically, although the character of Archer, who appears in Troubles, makes an appearance in The Singapore Grip also. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time all three first editions have been presented as a set. Troubles, published by Jonathan Cape in 1970, is a near fine book with the red top stain still present the book is without inscriptions. In a very good+ wrapper which is unclipped (45s/£2.25 as called for) with some wear to the spine ends and rubbing to the edges and corners. Superb dust wrapper illustration by Bill Botten. The Siege of Krishnapur, published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson in 1973 (winner of the Booker Prize of that year) is a very good book with one name to the ffep in a very good (internally reinforced) wrapper which is clipped and has some wear in places as well as a neatly repaired closed tear to the foot of the front panel. The Singapore Grip, published by Weidenfeld and Nicolson in 1978, is a near fine book without inscriptions in a very good+ wrapper which is not price clipped and has some fading to the spine as well as some wear to corners and extremities. Since Troubles was announced as the winner of the Lost Booker Prize of 1970, interest in Farrells work has risen dramatically. The trilogy exists as his legacy and displays his superb writing talent so tragically cut short in August 1979.[removed][removed]

        TIRESIAS.

      (Northampton: Gehenna Press, 1970). 5 x 7. 22 leaves. Frontis bust of Tennyson signed by Baskin. Title engraved by John Howard Benson and printed from the block in red. Four other etchings (two on blue paper, one in three colors) each signed by Baskin. Bound by Arno Werner in full vellum, quarter vellum tray case. Tray case has light soil; book yawns a bit, but is fine. Although 50 copies were printed of this exquisite little book, "About half the edition was destroyed by water damage at the press in 1970." (The Work of Fifty Years 68) Printed by Harold McGrath in Centaur types on handmade Fabriano. This copy is signed by Baskin in the colophon, and is number 30. All the etchings are signed (although the bibliography does not call for that). Baskin writes "It was not Tennyson but Tiresias, the male-female archaic know-it-all that really interested me & caused the poem to be printed. I thus had the possibility of doing several small & very hirsute etchings of him, & in color the copulating snakes whose secret procreative activities he penetrated to the vast annoyance of Artemis--the cause of Tiresias' sexual change. The book is noteworthy for its title page, enhanced by a wood engraving of the title by John E. Benson...."
