        Anne Carroll Moore. A Biography.

      New York: Atheneum, 1972 - Octavo. Original white cloth backed red boards, titles gilt to spine, top edge dyed yellow, yellow endpapers. With the dust jacket. Slight tanning to spine ends, minor surface tear to front pastedown from removed bookplate, an excellent copy in the price-clipped jacket, somewhat spine tanned, small chips to ends and corners. Plates illustrated with photographs. First edition, first printing, of this biography of Anne Carroll Moore (1871-1961), American author, educator and advocate for children's libraries. Presentation copy inscribed to Julia Carter, the first full time children's librarian at the New York Public Library. Sayers's inscription, to the front free endpaper, is fulsome: "This book is for Julia Carter, who gave most generously to its making - in 'remembrance of things past' - with gratitude and warm affection, Frances Clarke Sayers, The Ojai - California, Summer 1972". Julia Carter (who is quoted at length in this book regarding her debt to Sayers's teaching) was also the first national president of the Division of Library Work with Children and Young People of the American Library Association. She presented the first ever Caldecott Medal in 1938. The author Frances Clarke Sayers was also a significant children's librarian and children's book author. A magnificent tripartite association between passionately influential women in 20th-century American children's literature. This copy also includes an archive of friendship and correspondence, with 12 autograph letters signed (some running to numerous pages, one of which a beautifully illustrated card) from Moore to Carter, as well as a signed photograph of Moore in graduation robes of the University of California, and a small pamphlet of the "Children's Books of Yesterday, an Exhibition from many Countries" exhibition at the New York Public Library, 1933, written and curated by Moore.

        Calendar 1972

      Tokyo: (Takum Craft Shop), 1972. Stunning calendar featuring hand-dyed textiles by Keisuke Serizawa (1895-1984), a leader of the modern Japanese mingei, or folk arts, movement. Celebrating common objects like pottery, woodwork, and clothing as the "hand-crafted art of ordinary people," the artists of the mingei school used traditional craft techniques to produce inexpensive and accessible everyday goods. In many ways, the works of the mingei movement represent the successful execution of William Morris's Arts and Crafts ideals, which were never quite realized in his own expensive hand-crafted books, wallpaper, and decor. Serizawa specialized in the art of resist-dying textiles, reviving the centuries-old style of stencil dying called katazome, for which he was named a Living National Treasure by the Japanese government. This 1972 calendar, part of a series of katazome calendar folios begun in 1946, was produced as a gift for Mercedes-Benz of Japan. The calendar's patterns feature the Daruma, a popular stylized icon of the monk who founded Zen Buddhism; tengu, a mountain demon of folklore; and other traditional Japanese icons. A fine example of the twentieth-century Japanese folk arts movement by one of its leading voices. Portfolio measuring 15 x 11.5 inches, original stiff mulberry paper wrappers, two pastedown stencil-dyed mulberry paper labels to front wrapper, pastedown table of contents to rear wrapper, twelve loose broadside sheets (one for each month), each stencil-dyed in multiple colors on mulberry paper, untrimmed.
