New York : The University Society Inc. ; [Composition, presswork and binding, Albany, NY : J B Lyon Company], 1923., 1923. Fine. 3 volumes ; illustrated with black and white photographs, two-color plates, full-color plates featuring paintings by Louis Agassiz Fuentes, and full-color plates of bird eggs, based on drawings of Henry Thurston, as well as several black and white drawings and paintings by Rex I Brasher (1892-1969) and Robert Bruce Horsfall (1868-1948) ; Of these three artists, Horsfall probably had the strangest twist of fate, as he was directly responsible for the death of Clara Hoffmann, a fellow female art student at the Cincinnati Art Academy, who died from shock when he took her in a rowboat on a night in September of 1897 and, against her hysterical pleading, stripped off his clothing--he was wearing a bathing suit underneath--and took a swim. Th e girl never recovered and died two months later in November.

  • Format: Hardcover
Hardback, 855 p., 150 b/w ill., 195 x 270 mm. ISBN 9781905375592. Gavin Hamilton (1723 - 1798), the Scottish-born painter who spent most of his life in Italy, was one of the most prominent figures among the artists and collectors of 18th-century Europe. Although he first went to Rome to further his career as a painter and pursue his interests in the Antique, he soon found himself in the circle of distinguished artists, critics and antiquarians, many of whom were British visitors to Italy on the Grand Tour seeking to build or augment their collections of paintings and ancient culture. It was thus an easy move for Hamilton to begin dealing in Old Master paintings and antiquities, and his activities as a dealer almost overshadowed his reputation as an innovative painter of classical themes. The present publication, with its introductory essay on Hamilton's life and career, and the corpus of more than 300 edited and annotated letters, provides a significant contribution to the literature on the history of collecting. It brings evidence of Hamilton's wide-ranging personal contacts with the most eminent collectors of the time and of the many great works of art that passed through his hands, among them Leonardo's Madonna of the Rocks (now in London, National Gallery), Tintoretto's large Adoration of the Shepherds (Cambridge, Fitzwilliam Museum), Salvator Rosa's Pythagoras (Fort Worth, Kimbell Museum). The correspondence documents Hamilton's dealings with agents and purchasers and provides new source material on the dispersal of Italian art collections, on the fate of individual pictures and more generally on British artistic taste in the second half of the eighteenth century. There is also a body of illustrations that includes both Hamilton's own works - history paintings and portraits ' as well reproductions of some of the works mentioned in the letters.

  • Publisher: Harry N. Abrams, Inc., Publishers
New York: Harry N. Abrams, Inc., Publishers, 1987. First edition. Illustrated. 4to. Orange cloth in dust jacket. Fine. First edition. Illustrated. 4to. INSCRIBED to Lincoln Kirstein in the artist's hand, "For Lincoln / with love / Andy & Betsy."An outstanding association copy. Kirstein, who was on the board of MoMA, met Andrew Wyeth after the museum acquired CHRISTINA'S WORLD in 1948. Wyeth was still largely unknown at that time, and he quickly came to rely on Kirstein for support and honest criticism of his work. "Kirstein appointed himself Wyeth's friend, admirer, mentor, and stern critic - in essence a supersuccessor to NC. [...] Wyeth thinks that in the 1950s he needed Kirstein to push him toward more form in his work, more solidity" (Meryman, Andrew Wyeth: A Secret Life (1998) p 239, 243). Kirstein, who disdained most abstract art, was essential in providing Wyeth the confidence he needed to continue work in the face of hostile critics who derided his art as sentimental and unsophisticated. Wyeth was fond of quoting Kirstein's dismissive opinion of the critics, "Why do you want approval from those horses' asses?" (ibid, p. 390).Kirstein was a father-figure to two generations of Wyeth artists, and as Andrew's son Jamie developed his own artistic gifts, Kirstein began to transfer his attention to the younger Wyeth. "After posing for nineteen-year-old Jamie, Kirstein more or less shifted his allegiance from Andrew and became Jamie's friend and mentor. Kirstein told Betsy, 'You gave me the only son I ever had'" (ibid, p. 275). Here, Betsy signs her own name at the end of the inscription.

Putnams Sons, with the publisher's biographical pamphlet slipped in. The first printing from type not previously used in 1927, with subsequent printings from electrotypes taken from that type for the popular edition which was released several weeks prior to the limited Autograph edition; hence this is truly the first printing. Charles Augustus Lindbergh (1902-1974) was one of America's great heroes, famous for his Icarus-like achievements as a pilot. "WE" was written shortly after he achieved international stardom flying his renowned single-engine monoplane "Spirit of St. Louis" nonstop from New York to Paris, for which he was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. His first book, written early in his career, before conflict, conspiracy and tragedy tarnished his life and reputation. Publisher George Palmer Putnam (1887-1950) was an admirer of Lindbergh, and would go on to marry Amelia Earhart. With the attractive bookplate of Katie S. Matthews, engraved by New York jewelers Black, Starr and Frost (before 1929). Frontispiece a black and white etching by Robert James Malone (b. 1892) of an airplane centered by spotlights ascending from the earth, with the caption "And out of the night came a silver bird bearing a boy who carried letters of introduction to Paris".___DESCRIPTION: Original half vellum and brown paper covered boards with vellum tips, upper board and backstrip stamped in gilt, all edges uncut, pastedown endpapers illustrated in brown, frontis by Robert James Malone as described above, title page in brown and black, fifty-one black and white photographs throughout the text; Old Stratford paper, quarto size (9 7/8" by 6 1/2"), pagination: [1-4] 5-308, the "Author's Presentation Edition" limited to 100 copies of which this is 'P4', signed by Lindbergh and by publisher G.P.

  • Publisher: Russ. Tovarish. Moskva and Nessler Skt. Peterburg Jan.-June
Three coloured posters, the smallest 55.5 x 38 cm, the largest 61 x 40 cm. Posters printed on thin paper, with titles; some minor fraying at the edges, only marginal. Russian satirical prints from the early stages of the war, in fine condition. Attack on Port Mone illustrates the content of the satirical limerick written at the bottom of the print. In this brief but punchy rhyme, the author satirises the Japanese who are struggling to win American financial support, here as Uncle Sam, during the war against Russia. "Port Mone" stands here as an clever pun on "porte-monnaie" (ie. wallet, in French and Russian) and Port-Arthur, the most important site of conflict throughout the war, known also in Chinese as Lushun port. Attack on Port Mone, though it incorrectly describes the Japanese as the losing side, is ominously prescient of the United States' involvement in the events which will conclude the conflict. The war will end in 1905 with great losses for Russia and a peace deal brokered in New Hampshire by the President of the United States. Similarly, Cossack Petrukha and Battle Song of the Don Cossacks satirise the Japanese efforts against the Russians during the war. The first, set against the background of Port Arthur, illustrates the verses written on the lower portion of the plate, where the popular poet Vladimir Gilyarovsky compares the Japanese soldiers to impertinent lap dogs that must be punished. Cossack Petrukha also refers to the prowess of the Russian forces, who are set to defeat the Japanese enemy just as the Russian cossack has defeated other foreign enemies in the past. The posters, drawn in the lubok style, testify to the Russian war efforts, which were not limited to the battlefield but relied heavily on the talents of Russian artists and literary figures as well.
