        Street Merchants in Saint Petersburg].

      Maison de l'Eglise St. Pierre St. Petersburg third quarter of the 19th c. - Collection of 22 (possibly out of 24) hand-coloured lithographs, printed on thick paper, captioned in Russian and French. Dimensions: 12 x 8.8 cm. Scarce set of charming hand-coloured lithographs showing various street merchants rarely included in other similar works. Our set has a number of dissimilarities compared with the one in the collection of Gubar and in the depositories of Harvard University library: lithographed cards from our collection are unnumbered and have coloured backgrounds; some figures and captions have minor discrepancies, others feature different street merchants, not present in the Gubar's and Harvard's sets. Rare: not in the usual bibliographies, in particular not in Hilers' compilation nor Thieme-Becker, and apparently no copy in the UK, the Library of Congress and the NYPL. Cf. Dar Gubara, Sobranie, 3037-347 (vol I) & p. 193 (vol II); Ot azbuki Ivana Fedorova do sovremennogo bukvaria (Moskva, 1976), p.88.

        Stehender Pilger in antiker Gewandung, der bärtige Kopf im Profil nach links, die linke Hand ist ausgestreckt, die rechte hält einen Pilgerstab, an dem ein Beutel hängt.

      - Feder und Pinsel in Grau, rot laviert, auf blauem Bütten, auf gelben Untersatz mit mehreren Tuschlinien montiert. 21:13 cm. Bildhauerzeichnung! Literatur: Vgl. Ausst. Katalog: Peter Anton Verschaffelt. Zeichnungen im Reiss-Museum. Mannheim 1976, 75c. Bei dem hier als „Antiker Philosoph" aufgeführten Blatt dürfte es sich um eine Variante unseres Motivs handeln. „1752 verließ der Künstler Rom, um sich nach London zu begeben, wo er mit der Elite der englischen Maler, mit Th. Gainsborough (1727-1788), W. Hogarth (1697-1764) und J. Reynolds (1723-1792) in enger Fühlung stand. So galt Verschaffelt, als er dem Ruf des Kurfürsten Carl Theodor (von der Pfalz) Folge leistete, die Leitung der neu gegründeten Zeichenakademie in Mannheim zu übernehmen, bereits als Erster unter vielen auf dem Gebiet der Kunst, als einer, dessen Werke antiken Geist atmeten. Das Barocke seiner Gestalten ist zu verfeinertem Rokoko abgewandelt, aber ohne leidenschaftliche Pose. Der Schlossgarten wurde zum Freilichtmuseum seiner Schöpfungen, für welche das Material auf Neckarschleppern aus dem nahen Odenwald herangebracht wurde." (zitiert aus: O. Knaus, Künstler am Hofe Carl Theodors. Die Gestalter des Schwetzinger Schlossgartens. Schwetzingen, 1963, S. 12).

        Autograph letter to B. Schott's Söhne Musikverlag signed in full.

      - Most probably unpublished. Not in the most comprehensive collection of Bartók's letters: Bartók Béla: Levelei, ed. János Demény (Budapest: Zenem kiadó, 1976).The publication by Schott that offended Bartók was volume 12 of Das Lied der Völker, an anthology of folksongs edited by Heinrich Möller (1876-1958). The volume, issued in 1929, reprinted two of Bartók's folksong arrangements without permission. In addition, Möller attacked Bartók’s scholarly work on the subject. As Schott was not bowing to Bartók’s pressure for satisfaction, Bartók took revenge and reviewed Möller’s publication in the Zeitschrift für Musikwissenschaft, August- September 1931, pp. 580-582. The review sparked a polemical exchange with Möller that lasted well into the following year. See "The Bartók-Möller Polemical Interchange," in Béla Bartók Studies in Ethnomusicology, ed. Benjamin Suchoff (Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 1996), pp. 142- 157. 1 page. Quarto (275 x 220 mm). Dated Budapest, June 20, 1930. In blue ink on stationery with watermark "Szenabella Stationer Szénásy Budapest." In German (with translation).Bartók is furious about a volume of Hungarian folksongs published by Schott. He has asked the publisher for "corrections," but Schott refuses to take action:"I am sorry to glean from your letter that you are not inclined to respond to my request (concerning Möller’s edition, 'Ungarische Volkslieder'). Because of this I am forced to attempt to realize the corrections I would like by resorting to other means."Annotations by the recipient in blue and green pencil. Slightly worn; creased at folds; small burnhole and trace of rusty paper clip to left margin; small edge tears.

        Winston S. Churchill, The Official Biography, Volume V, 1922-1939, inscribed by the author to "indefatigable Churchill literary assistant" Denis Kelly and also with the author's autograph presentation letter to Kelly

      London: William Heinemann Ltd., 1976. First edition. Hardcover. This British first edition of the fifth volume of ChurchillÂ’s Official Biography is an important association copy, inscribed by the author to “indefatigable Churchill literary assistant” Denis Kelly. The six-line inscription inked in black on the front free endpaper reads: “To D.K. - | with the authorÂ’s warmest regards | as always | M.G. | London | 6th March 1986”. Laid in is an autograph presentation note from Gilbert in five lines reading: “7th March 1986 | Dear D.K. (of my Daily volume 8 work!) | Here is volume 5. It comes with | warmest regards, as always | Martin”. The autograph presentation note is on personal stationery with printed address and telephone number. The “volume 8” reference refers to the eighth and final main text volume of the Official Biography, then being prepared by the author, which extensively references Denis Kelly. Denis Kelly (1916-1990) served during the Second World War first in the Surrey and Sussex Yeomanry and then in the Indian Mountain Artillery in India and Burma (1941-45). Though he was called to the bar in 1942, after the war Kelly joined ChurchillÂ’s literary team, first as an archivist, then as a literary assistant on ChurchillÂ’s war memoirs. On 14 May 1947, Churchill met the young barrister at Chartwell. Showing Kelly a cellar “stacked from floor to ceiling” Churchill tasked him thus: “Your task, my boy, is to make Cosmos out of Chaos.” Kelly approached the task with not only diligence and competence, but no small reverence: “I realised that I was handling the personal papers of a man who had experienced and shaped the history of the world in the last fifty years…” (Gilbert, Vol. VIII, p.331.) Ultimately, KellyÂ’s assistance went far beyond organization of ChurchillÂ’s papers. Kelly became a vital part of ChurchillÂ’s literary team for the rest of ChurchillÂ’s productive life as an author, not only assisting with The Second World War and A History of the English-Speaking Peoples, but also preparing the abridged, one-volume Memoirs of the Second World War (published 1959). ChurchillÂ’s 10,000 word epilogue to KellyÂ’s abridgement proved his last original writing for a book publication. KellyÂ’s papers, including correspondence with Sir Martin Gilbert, now reside in the Churchill Archives Centre at Churchill College, Cambridge. The Official Biography of Winston Churchill, initiated by his son Randolph Churchill (1911-1968) but completed by Martin Gilbert (1936-2015), is an epic piece of scholarship about a singularly epic life. British first editions of the eight main text volumes were published between 1966 and 1988. This fifth volume covers the years 1922 to 1939, from the time when Churchill left the Liberal Party, rejoined the Tories, and became Chancellor of the Exchequer to the "wilderness years" of the 1930s when he was out of power and out of favor, persistently seeking to draw attention, resources and resolve to face the growing Nazi threat. This inscribed association copy is in very good condition in a very good dust jacket. The red cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with sharp corners and bright spine gilt. We note minor shelf wear and a neat, .25 inch closed tear at the spine head. The contents remain bright with no ownership marks other than the authorÂ’s inscription. Light spotting is confined to the top and fore edges and the red-stained top edge is sunned, retaining only a hint of pink color. The editionÂ’s brown dust jacket proved highly susceptible to sunning. This dust jacket shows minor toning to the spine and the upper edge of the front face and light wear to extremities. The lower front flap of the first edition dust jacket originally featured two prices, an introductory price “until February 28th, 1977” with a higher price above. The introductory price is neatly clipped from this jacket, leaving the higher price intact above. The dust jacket is protected with a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Zoller A301e
