Mount Vernon, 1790. [1]p. plus integral blank leaf. Quarto on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines, dampstained, minor edge wear. Good. An intriguing early presidential letter written by President Washington at Mount Vernon. Washington seeks to acknowledge real estate matters dealing with land once conveyed by him to his ward, John Parke Custis, and sold by Custis to Virginia judge James Henry. The letter reads: "I availed myself a few days ago of the presence of M[r.] B. Bassett to reacknowledge before him and Dr Stuart the original conveyance from me to the deceased Mr Custis of the land which you are possessed of by purchase from him in King and Queen County. This reacknowledgement in the opinion of professional men is all that is necessary to give validity to the deed, and all that is proper for me to do under the circumstances which exist. The deed thus reacknowledged, was put into the hands of M[r.] Bassett, but as he was in the act of departure it did not occur to me at that moment, that there ... Read more

n.p.:n.p., [1961]. This Honer Marine Band harmonica was given to Peter McKenzie, the youngest member of the McKenzie family with whom Dylan lived sporadically during 1961 shortly after arriving in NYC, a period that has been chronicled extensively by Dylan and others. It was during this time that Dylan's harmonica playing got him his first professional recording sessions, as an accompanist for Carolyn Hester and Harry Belafonte. When Dylan started playing clubs and recording on his own, the harmonica was a distinctive and prominent part of his sound. According to Jeff Gold, noted Dylan collector and dealer in music memorabilia, there are only a couple of signed Dylan items dated 1961 that are known to exist. The harmonica itself is in nice condition. The lid of the box is tender, being partially split along the seam where it attaches to the box, and there is a slight sepia patina of age, however the signature and date are strong and clear. The harmonica is housed in a handsome clamshell box with a ... Read more

1971. Near Fine/Near Fine. A group of books from the personal collection of Elsa Schiaparelli (1890-1974) one of the world's premiere fashion designers during the '20s and '30s, whose popularity once rivaled Coco Chanel. Schiaparelli pioneered numerous now-iconic fashion staples such as the divided skirt, first worn by tennis player Lili de Alvarez at Wimbledon in 1931; trompe-l'oeil detailing in knitwear; the recasting of fasteners such as zippers, buttons, and hooks as featured fashion elements; the early adoption of synthetic materials such as rayon, acrylic, and cellophane into high fashion; and her incorporation of playful, surrealist design into fashion through collaboration with friends Jean Cocteau, Leonor Fini, and Salvador Dali, with whom she created the Lobster Dress made famous by Wallis Simpson.Her interest in books was likely fostered by her father a renowned Italian scholar and dean of The University of Rome.With the exception of BEMELMANS, Ludwig.

London: Macmillan and Co., 1894. First edition. Hardcover. John Lockwood Kipling. This is a compelling set of British first editions of perhaps Kipling’s most famous works – the first and second Jungle Books. These copies were previously owned by Churchill’s friends and publishers, Frank and Nelson Doubleday, and apparently used by Nelson to prepare Doubleday’s 1946 editions. Ironically, Kipling’s quintessential tales of India were conceived in Vermont, where Kipling and his father, John Lockwood Kipling (1837-1911) “worked together in the closest harmony… as the two sat smoking their pipes and plotting out fresh stories together.” (Allen, Kipling Sahib, p.328) Here Mowgli was born, the infant found by Father Wolf, saved from Shere Khan, and tutored in the Laws of the Jungle by Bagheera the panther and Baloo the bear. “The pen took charge, and I watched it begin to write stories about Mowgli and the animals, which later grew into the Jungle Books.” Kipli ...

Each issue drop-title as issued, in contemporary flush-cut cloth-backed papered boards; cloth renewed; boards lightly worn at the extremities and a little marked; the contents are in fine condition. Number 32, the first one in Volume 2, is a different format - shorter and wider - and the leading margins are folded back 40 mm.

Nesbit and his family - in particular his sister Agnes Benham - were interested in the "new thought" movement of the 1890s, with its socialism and sexual reform.... Ear ... Read more
