Six different menus from the Ahwahnee Hotel.

ADAMS, Ansel [photographer]

  • Quantity available: 1
Yosemite: Ahwahnee Hotel, 1955. Six menus, each with a different duotone image of a Yosemite scene on the front by Ansel Adams. Bifolios (7 x 4 inches) with the image on front, the menu on the inside and descriptive text on the rear. Images include Glacier Point, Yosemite Falls, Half Dome and Merced River, Young Lake, Winter-Yosemite Valley, and the Mariposa Grove. All are in very good condition. Ansel Adams is, of course, known the world over for his strikingly beautiful photos of Yosemite but what is not so generally known is his special relationship with Yosemite's premier hotel, the Ahwahnee. Built in 1927, the Ahwahnee is a tourist destination in its own right. The distinctive structure also served as the artistic and cultural backdrop for the Ansel Adams' annual production of Washington Irving's Christmas at Bracebridge Hall. Adams directed and acted in this production for many years.

  • Quantity available: 1
Sacramento: (Printed by H. S. Crocker for Easton & Ward), 1923. First edition. Oblong octavo (9 x 6 inches). 89, [1] pp. With photographic illustrations of this prize herd on every recto. Publisher's blue cloth with gilt cover lettering. Overall, a very good copy of this scarce book. DanvilleÕs Blackhawk Ranch was established in 1917 when Ansel Mills Easton and his son-in-law William Q. Ward purchased 1250 acres from Robert N. Burgess, owner of the new Mount Diablo Country Club. Architect Louis Mulgardt designed a spacious, showcase house for the families at the ranch where registered Shire workhorses and pure-bred Shorthorn cattle were raised. Ansel Mills Easton was the uncle of photographer Ansel Adams (Ansel was named after this uncle) and he named the Ranch after a famous Irish race horse that he had owned. This ranch was endeavoring to breed and raise very high end cattle as well as horses of distinction and this book is predominantly given over to photographs and histories of the various breeding bul ...

Wistaria.

(ADAMS, Ansel, photographer) BYNNER, Witter.

  • Quantity available: 1
San Francisco: John Henry Nash, [1927]. First edition. Bifolio [4 pp.] measuring 9 1/2 x 14 inches. Original Parmelian Print by Ansel Adams mounted to third page. Minor browning to edge but overall an excellent copy. "Written by Witter Bynner for Rosalie and Sigmund Stern, Atherton, California." The parmelian print by Adams is a stunning image of the Wistaria vine in bloom on the portico of the Stern's home. In OCLC the date is usually given as 1923 but in light of the fact that Ansel Easton Adams did not call any of his prints 'Parmelian' until after he issued Parmelian Prints of the High Sierras in 1927 that date is suspect. The term "parmelian" was a meaningless word invented by the publisher of Parmelian Prints of the High Sierra, Jean Chambers Moore, who believed that calling them "photographic prints" would not allow them to be taken seriously as art. Adams did not continue in the use of the word.

Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1861. First edition. Small octavo. iv, 275, [1] pp. Half calf over brown boards, spine with gilt floral devices within compartments, black morocco gilt lettering label, marbled endpapers. Some drying to spine and tips but still a very good copy of the pro-slavery novel. Nehemiah Adams, graduate of Harvard and Andover Theological Seminary, became became pastor of Union Congregational Church in Boston, Massachusetts and held that position until his death in 1878. In 1854, he took a trip to the American South, and wrote a book entitled A South-Side View of Slavery. This book was attacked by abolitionists for its perceived moderation. In 1861, Adams wrote a successor volume, The Sable Cloud, to answer his attackers. This rather idiosyncratic novel used a pitiless construction of the biblical text to reject the inference of the inherent sinfulness of slavery.

London, et. al]: V. p, 1910. A remarkable collection of ca. 1910 British ads. Very skillfully cut and laid down. Almost alll of them pertain to personal hygiene (soaps. perfumes, cigarettes, hair products, etc,). Lots of the ads are very patriotic and drum up Nationalism. There are 158 ads and about 1/2 of them are full page. No tears or stains and none have fallen out.The album itself seems a bit newer but is still very attractive. Black leaves in a rectangular string bound leather album.

Chicago: Grant Advertising Inc, 1940. Original sage green paper portfolio (18 x 14 inches) with Grant Advertising, Inc. and slogan imprinted on front. This is a presentation, or pitch, by the advertising company to the Cudhy Packing Company for possible print ads for Delrich Margarine. Tipped-in to the folder are two hand-colored illustrations of margarine; one with rolls the other with corn. The drawings are very finely executed. Attached with a paperclip is the text that is proposed for the illustrations (2 pages, both on Grant Advertising letterhead). A fine look at the heyday of American Advertising. "Founded in 1935 in Chicago by Will C. Grant, Grant Advertising quickly grew into a worldwide network, opening its 25th overseas office, in Bangkok, just 21 years later. By 1959, Grant had 42 offices worldwide, further expanding what it claimed in 1952 to be the largest network of wholly owned advertising agency offices. The agency got off to a fast start, signing Mars Inc. as one of its first accounts. Wit ... Read more
