Peter MacArthur was the program director at radio station WOC in Davenport, Iowa, which shared its frequency with WHO Des Moines. In 1932, MacArthur gave 21-year-old recent Eureka College grad Ronald ?Dutch? Reagan a sports announcer?s job at WOC. In 1937, sportscaster Reagan went to the Chicago Cubs spring training camp in southern California to do play-by-play for WHO Des Moines. Impressed by his confidence and good looks, an agent arranged a screen test for the 26-year-old sports announcer at Warner Bros. Reagan signed a seven-year contract and moved to California. But he never forgot Pete and Hup MacArthur whom he affectionately called ?Ma? and ?Pa? (?Maw & Paw,? ?Mom & Pop?). He sent Christmas cards and letters to them on a regular basis from 1938 until 1948 when Pete died, continuing to correspond with Hup until she died in 1995 at 101.

      - Watercolour and gouache on acid free watercolour paper, 65cm by 48cm, signed lower right "W. T. Cooper 93", unframed but in a pale green archival mount. The original watercolour for plate 130 from Forshaw, Joseph M. and William T Cooper Kingfishers and related birds, volume six (Bucerotidae: Buceros to Ceratogymna) 1983-1994. Figure one: Brown-backed Hornbill Anorrhinus tickelli. AMNH 203208 adult male. Collected 28 miles east of Um Pang, Thailand, 31 January 1924. Figure two: Brown-backed Hornbill Anorrhinus tickelli. AMNH 203211 adult female. Collected 28 miles east of Um Pang, Thailand, 2 February 1924. Tickell's Brown Hornbill, also known as the Rusty-cheeked Hornbill, is found in the evergreen and deciduous hill forest from the foothills to 1500 metres of southern Myanmar and adjacent western Thailand. It is conspecific with Austen's Brown Hornbill. About 60-65 cm in length it is a medium sized dimorphic hornbill with the male having brighter rufous cheeks and throat. Juveniles of both sexes resemble adult males. It breeds co-cooperatively, in groups. Habitat loss due to logging and agriculture are a threat. The binomial tickelli commemorates the ornithologist Samuel Tickell (1811-1875). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Sweeney Astray - WORLD First Printing Hardback

      Field Day, Derry 1983 - Full buckram binding. This is the true world First Edition, First Impression. Signed by Author. A wonderful version from the Irish by this acclaimed Nobel winning poet with superb two colour typography. This beautiful production from Field Day is a much sought after book, and especially rare in a signed copy as this. The Nobel Laureate has signed this on the title page. He has dated it as '26.6.87' so it is later than the publication date of 1983. He has also cancelled his printed name. There is an illustration on the front cover of the jacket, by Colin Middleton with a slightly adapted version of the same drawing used on the buckram front binding inside a recess. Two internal drawings, one of a bird’s nest, containing the head of a bird and a human hand and the other a further appearance of the cover device but printed in sanguine ink. All the drawings are by Middleton. This is a very difficult title to find signed. I ordered it from Field Day and wish I had ordered more copies, because it quickly sold out. I have left the price sticker on the back cover, which says £8! I obtained the signature at a reading on London’s South Bank.Slight foxing to a few pages, and a neat former owner blind stamp and name to the half title, which explains why this is Near Fine. Jacket is protected and unclipped, and it is without any damage or spine fade. Very rare indeed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
