        Postcard to Roy Kerridge.

      Postcard 14 x 11 cm, red ink on cream card with design of dove of peace to front, manuscript message with musical notation signed by Pete Seeger to reverse with US 22 cent stamp, sent from his home in Beacon, NY; horizontal creases across card, very good. This is a fascinating postcard from Pete Seeger (b. 1919), the singer and song-writer whose work in the post-war period made him a senior and pivotal figure in the folk revival of the 1960s. He wrote protest songs such as "Where Have All The Flowers Gone?" and "If I Had A Hammer" that were of central importance to the burgeoning folk and underground movements and which were inspirational to the young Bob Dylan, of whom Seeger was an early supporter. The Byrds were heavily indebted to him, including famous versions of his songs "Turn, Turn, Turn" and "The Bells of Rhymney" alongside several Dylan numbers on their first album. A card-carrying communist in his youth, he was blacklisted by US television for many years and continues to record politically-charged music together with his beloved traditional folksongs to this day. This little message to the British writer Roy Kerridge reveals Seeger the musicologist, tracing the origins of the song "Kumbaya" back to the South Carolina gospel song "Come by here" , with the observation, which once made seems so obvious that one wonders why one had never noticed it before, that it uses the melody of "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star". Kerridge is a man thoroughly in tune with Seeger's beliefs. In his 2011 autobiographical novel Stalin's Schoolboy, Kerridge, who was brought up by Marxist parents, puts this definition of communism into the mouth of his 11 year old self: "?It means that you like Russia more than England, you don?t like God and Empire, but you do like folk tales and folksongs. You like primitive people better than white people, so you stick up for the Indians, not Cowboys'".

        [Original Artist's Book:] THE HISTORY OF HOSIERY

      [Brooklyn: The Artist, 1986. Narrow octavo (17.5 x 8 cm). Painted silk binding, with laces. Fold-outs consisting of two folded leaves of heavy stock, with double- spread center piece. In line with the material used, fine. A unique artist's book by this prominent American book artist, composed with mixed media and bound in a painted silk binding with raised girdle-snaps arranged under the silk and other features evocative of the subject. The three separate images consist of collaged pictorial clippings, worked over by hand with paint and other media. This is a good example of Schaer's exploration, often through the literal use of garments, of feminist and social issues. This work was exhibited at the 1986 Center for Book Arts "New Works" show, and in 1990, at the Lower East Side Print Shop exhibition, "Selections."

        Men's Lives. The Surfmen and Baymen of the South Fork

      NY: Random House. (1986). A volume about the fishermen of eastern Long Island and a way of life that, in the late stages of the 20th century, appeared to be irretrievably dying away. Matthiessen spent much of his life on eastern Long Island, and once ran a charter fishing boat off the island in addition to having worked for three years with commercial fishermen, so this sympathetic portrait was written from the perspective of one who, at least for period of a time, shared the life described. Inscribed by Matthiessen to his father: "Dear Dad - It's not the Race, but it's the same part of the country/ Thanks for teaching us about boats! Much love/ Pete/ Sagaponack NY 11962." [Zip code added, rather than date.] Also signed in full, "Peter Matthiessen," on the same page. The reference to "the Race" is to Race Rock, a reef off the coast of eastern Long Island, famous for its lighthouse and for being a hazard to sailors; it also gave Matthiessen the title for his first novel, published in 1954. Creasing to the last 20 pages; minor dampstaining to the lower edges; a very good copy in a very good, price-clipped dust jacket. An excellent family association, and one that sheds light on family and personal history. First Edition. Hardcover.

      -,, Gugging, 1986 - Farbstifte, Bleistift auf Papier. Gugging, -, 1986. 40 x 30 cm. Gerahmt. Monogrammiert "F. J. ". - Der ehemalige Weinbauer Johann Fischer begann in Gugging im Pensionsalter diszipliniert zu zeichnen."Anfangs zeichnete er nur einzelne Figuren oder Gegenstände und beschränkte sich auf den Bleistift als Werkzeug. In den folgenden Jahren wurden seine Zeichnungen aber immer farbiger, komplexer und kompositorisch dichter. Er fügte zuerst seinen Abbildungen ausführliche Titel hinzu und entwickelte daraus schließlich jenes erzählerische, dokumentarische Stilmittel der "Inschriftierung". Seine späteren Blätter sind oft mit Schrift und Bild und nur wenig Lücken bis an den Rand gefüllt." (Zitat) Deutsch

        Birds of the Pacific Slope. A Biography of the Artist & Naturalist 1818 - 1869

      San Francisco: The Arion Press, 1986. First edition. original tan linen cloth, brown morocco gilt decorated and lettered labels, text volume in original cloth slipcase. As new. Quarto, plates large folio (63.5 x 48 cms.; 25 x 19 inches) . Two volumes: text volume and portfolio with plates With 156 large coloured single leaf plates, and numerous coloured plates in the text volume No. of 425 sets, printed by Andrew Hoyem “Andrew Jackson Grayson, who came to San Francisco just before the Gold Rush, was inspired to paint by James John Audubon's Birds of America. He vowed to extend Audubon's visual record west, to include the CA retail Pacific Slope of California and Mexico. Bequeathed to the University of California in 1879 by Grayson's widow, his paintings became an important holding in The Bancroft Library, but remained largely unknown to the public. Lois Chambers Stone of Berkeley spent several years researching the biography of Grayson that accompanies the portfolio. The publication of this long-overlooked masterwork has now assured Grayson of a significant place in the history of American ornithology. As a result of the Arion edition, an exhibition of Grayson's original watercolors and related material, including the book and portfolio, was mounted in 1987 at the Oakland Museum and the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D. C.” -Arion Press information.

      - CONOVER,CHRIS. ORIGINAL ART: FROGGIE WENT A-COURTING [CHASED INTO THE LAKE p.[19-20]]. Offered here is a double page watercolor used in Conover's Froggie Went A-Courting published by Ferrar Straus Giroux in 1986. It is the story of a handsome humanized, seafaring frog's wooing of Miss Mousie. An entire world of humanized creatures is created around this traditional song with text retold by Conover. Reviewed by School Library Journal as a 'tour de force.'. This illustration measures 15 1/2" wide x 9 1/2", signed. The scene shows all of the wedding party in the water after being chased by Tom Cat. Froggie has saved the day by capturing the cat in a net. Its a fabulous image that you'd never get tired of looking at. Conover has been illustrating children's books since 1974. Her work is noted for rich colors and incredible attention to detail, some of which is executed using a magnifying glass for accuracy. There is plenty to look at but without the overcrowding that hampers so many modern children's books. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
