2 Alley, Ronald THE FOREIGN PAINTINGS, DRAWINGS AND SCULPTURE [in the Tate Gallery]
London Tate Gallery 1959 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 8vo 8" - 9" tall Signed by Author
Tate Gallery Catalogues; Autograph; 300 pages; Signed by the author on the ffep - "With all good wishes / Ronald Alley / 18.9.59" Clean and tight in original binding in very good dustjacket. This book constitutes the first catalogue of the Tate Gallery's foreign collection to be published since 1934. In addition to a detailed description of each art work, there is a brief biography of each of the artists. Illustrated with 56 plates, many containing multiple . From the collection of Stefan P. Munsing [1915-1994] who worked in New York City as a designer for Hans Knoll, Norman Bel Geddes and RCA. Munsing served in the Army in World War II, then as Chief of the Monuments, Fine-Arts & Archives Section in Munich. The MFAA was an Army unit locating stolen artworks which had disappeared into the huge Nazi hoards during the war. [Readers of this listing will have ample reason to appreciate the activities of this important organization by the end of December 2013, when George Cluny's movie: "Monument Men" is due to be released.] Munsing later joined the U.S. Department of State during the later 1940's and '50's, where he established the State Department's Amerika Haus programs in Munich and Berlin and organized exhibitions and cultural programs in Germany and Austria. In 1955, he was named cultural officer at the American Embassy in London, where he staged exhibitions of such New York artists as Philip Pavia, Paul Jenkins and Ben Shahn and became an important force in the London art world. Munsing returned to the U.S. in the 1960's and 70's where he helped establish the contemporary art collection of the National Museum of Fine Arts in Washington (now the National Museum of American Art) and headed the State Department's Art in Embassies program. In retirement from the State Department after 1976, Mr. Munsing was a consultant to the American Association of Museums. ; Signed by Author

4 Anonymous [Rockwell Kent's copy] Istoria del Testamento Vecchio e Nuovo rappresentata con bellissime figure con spiegazioni estratte da' Santi Padri, che molto edificano e servono a ben ordinare i costumi in ogni genere di persone
Venice nella stamperia di Giambatista Albrizzi 1770 Paperback Good+ Large 12mo 
8 p.l., 766 & [2] pages; Original flexible paste-paper boards. Spine quite worn, with upper portion now missing, exposing the sewing and the folded ends of the gatherings, some soiling and marks to the front and rear covers, hinges still attached by the sewing, upper corner of the first several leaves bumped, some lifting to the front paste-down endpaper. With engraved frontispiece and over 100 half-page illustrations throughout, along with an assortment of woodcut decorative tailpieces. With two Rockwell Kent bookplates, designed by the artist himself, mounted to the front paste-down endpaper. These bookplates date from Kent's second and third marriages. While living on Monhegan early in the twentieth century, Rockwell Kent met his first wife, Kathleen Whiting, a niece of painter Abbott Handerson Thayer. Over the course of the next 13 years, the couple had five children together until their divorce in 1925. Kent was married again in 1926 to Frances Lee Higgins, and, after a 1939 divorce, yet another marriage followed in 1940 to Shirley (“Sally”) Johnstone. Both bookplates Kent used for this book were exhibited at SUNY Plattsburg's State Art Museum "Art of the Bookplate" at the University's Rockwell Kent Gallery. [The larger plate is #458 - Frances and Rockwell Kent, 1928, image: 2 5/8 x 1 3/4 ", paper: 3 x 2 1/8 ". The smaller plate mounted beneath is #560- Sally and Rockwell Kent, 1955, image: approx. 1 1 x 1 1/4 ", paper: 1 5/16 x 1 1/2 "]. There is an interesting inscription in ink on a front blank leaf: "To Clarke Bowen / Compliments of / Mr. Joseph Calì / Artist / Malta / 31st March / 1914." Giuseppe Calì (1846 –1930) was a Maltese painter, born in Valletta of Neapolitan parents and educated at the Accademia delle Belle Arti in Naples. He was a prolific artist: almost every church of any consequence in Malta boasts work by Giuseppe Calì. He was commemorated by the Republic of Malta with a series of four postage stamps in 1996, and a coin in 2004. The 'New York Times' (23 May 1915) printed a notice of a private exhibition of Clarke Bowen's collection of art, furniture and objects at his home, Woodhaven [Queens], noting that most of Bowen's paintings had been aquired in Malta. There are also brief eighteenth century ownership inscriptions on that same front blank and the title page. Printed as an unusually tall 12mo. Collation: [-] 8 A-Ii 12. With both half title and a genuine initial blank leaf ([-]1). Despite the wear to the fragile original boards, a clean and complete copy of what is now a rare book. OCLC Number: 636308750 (locating a single copy only, at the Sistema Bibliotecario Ticinese, Lugano, Switzerland. From the collation, it appears that this sole OCLC copy lacked the initial blank leaf, and had only the text of the "Vecchio Testamento" - ending with page 504). A search of the huge database of ICCU [4600 Italian libraries -- Istituto Centrale per il Catalogo Unico (delle biblioteche italiane e per le informazioni bibliografiche)] turns up three copies in Italy -- [Biblioteca comunale Planettiana - Jesi - AN; Biblioteca del Monte - Perugia - PG; and Biblioteca comunale Manfrediana - Faenza - RA]. The collation of the uniform listing is completely in accord with our copy, with the blank leaf, the frontispiece, 766 pages of text (Testamenti Vecchio e Nuovo) and [2] pages of "Tavola." The Hauptbibliothek Altstadt at Heidelberg University has a copy with identical pagination (and the same frontispiece), but evidently dated "1760." Since that date, ten years earlier than our copy, is not mentioned in the 4600 library database of the ICCU, I suggest that this is a typographical error in modern cataloguing rather than a variant. No copies recorded in the USA, none in the British Library, or the Bibliotheque Nationale. Some of the many illustrations throughout show some wear in this copy, and the plates from which those were printed were almost certainly reused from earlier sources. Still, ownership of this copy seemed to inspire two reknowned artists, and at least one American collector of paintings.

7 Ashmore, Otis ; [ Charles Francis Adams ] A HISTORY OF THE ERECTION AND DEDICATION OF THE MONUMENT TO GENERAL JAMES EDWARD OGLETHORPE
Savannah Georgia Historical Society 1911 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
Collections of the Georgia Historical Society, Vol VII, Part II; 54 pages; Clean and tight in original dark green cloth binding with gilt lettering. Scarce item of Georgia history in excellent condition and embellished with the wonderful bookplate of Charles Francis Adams (1835-1915), grandson of John Quincy Adams on the front pastedown. This bookplate was devised and first used by John Quincy Adams as here described: "The shield was divided quarterly. In the first quarter was an adaptation of the deer, pine, and fish device his father had adopted to commemorate his achievements in the negotiations with Britain. This quarter evidently represented the Adams family itself. Except for the stars, which are hatched with horizontal lines indicating the color blue, the bookplate gives no indication of tinctures for this quarter, which would suggest that it should be shown with the charges in their natural colors against a silver or white field. The second quarter represents the family of John Quincy’s mother Abigail Smith Adams, and the third quarter Abigail’s maternal line of Quincy. Finally, in the fourth quarter, are the familiar Boylston arms used before. The crest is also that from the Boylston arms, and the motto is again the passage from Tacitus, this time in the most common order, Fidem libertatem amicitiam retinebis."

MR. JUSTICE AND MRS. BLACK - The Memoirs of Hugo L. Black and Elizabeth Black, Black, Hugo L. and Elizabeth ; [Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart's copy]
12 Black, Hugo L. and Elizabeth ; [Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart's copy] MR. JUSTICE AND MRS. BLACK - The Memoirs of Hugo L. Black and Elizabeth Black
New York Random House 1986 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket Signed by Author
Autograph; Inscribed and signed on ffep by Elizabeth Black, Mrs. Hugo L. Black to her good friend and fellow wife of a Supreme Court justice Andy Stewart, Mrs. Potter Stewart. The inscription reads as follows: "For Andy Stewart / And in loving/ memory of Potter, who / served on the Court / with Hugo for many / years. / With my love and / good wishes. / Elizabeth / February 27, 1986 / (Hugo's 100th birth anniversary)" Clean and tight in original black cloth binding in very good dustjacket. "These memoirs put into moving personal context many of the great legal decisions of recent American history. They give a behind the scenes view of the workings of the Supreme Court as well as the relationships the Blacks had with people in power, including the Presidents with whom they associated." In the index of this book, there are 22 references to Potter Stewart who served as a Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court for nearly 24 years. In 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower nominated Potter Stewart to the Supreme Court to replace Justice Harold Hitz Burton, who was retiring. Stewart served on the Supreme Court until he announced his retirement from the Court on June 18, 1981 at the age of 66. During his tenure (1958-1981) as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, Potter Stewart made major contributions to criminal justice reform, civil rights, access to the courts, and Fourth Amendment jurisprudence. Stewart leaned toward moderate, pragmatic positions, but was often in the position of dissenting during his time on the Warren Court. Stewart's philosophy might be most coherently traced to Justice Robert Jackson, about whom Stewart said: "He saw that 'judicial activism' could be a deadening and stultifying force... that every coercive and centralizing court decision deals a blow ... to the ability and then to the will of the democratic process to operate with responsibility and vigor." ; Signed by Author

The French Refugees at the Cape, Botha, Colin Graham
14 Botha, Colin Graham The French Refugees at the Cape
Cape Town [South Africa] Cape Times Limited 1921 Second Edition Hardcover Very Good+ 8vo Signed by Author
Autograph; viii & 171 pages; Publisher's pale green buckram cloth, spine lettered in black within two slightly recessed panels. A lovely copy of the 1921 Second edition, an unaltered re-impression of the edition first published in 1919. This copy is signed in ink on the title page by the author [as "C. Graham Botha"] and has the faint, private, impressed stamp of the "Munger Africana Library" -- at one time this excellent copy was the property of Professor Edwin S. Munger, professor of geography, emeritus, at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). Munger [1922-2010] took his first trip to Africa in 1947-financed by poker winnings during his service in the U.S. Army. His second African trip was in 1949 as the first Fulbright Fellow to Africa, where he attended Makerere University, Kampala, Uganda. He was an Institute of Current World Affairs fellow in Africa from 1950 to 1954, and from 1955 to 1961 was an American Universities Field Staff member. During this period, Professor Munger lived a year each in Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, and South Africa. He was an evaluator for the Peace Corps in Uganda in1966, and Botswana in1967, and chairman of the U.S. State Department Evaluation Team in South Africa (1971). For 14 years he served as president of the L.S.B. Leakey Foundation. During all these travels, Munger collected books, forming eventually a private library of approximately 60,000 volumes on the subject. Munger actively used his books; he edited the scholarly series: 'Munger Africana Library Notes' based on studies by him and his students (1969-1982). Colin Graham Botha [1883-1973], VD, KStJ, KLJ, was the Union of South Africa’s first Chief Archivist. After retirement from this position, he served as the founding President of the Heraldry Society of Southern Africa, from 1953 until his death in 1973 at the age of 90. This carefully prepared book of his is essential to the study of winemaking and viniculture in South Africa, as the French encouraged and allowed to emmigrate to the Cape Colony in the Seventeenth century by the Dutch East India Company were picked based on their knowledge and experience with vines, grapes, winemaking, and also the cultivation of olives for oil. The first large batch of such refugees arrived in 1688. This book has exhaustive details of the ships on which they were transported, the oaths of loyalty they were required to swear (cited in Dutch and English), their names and where they settled. There are two folding maps and a folding plate of facsimile signatures, all on coated paper stock. The plates and text block is in fine, fresh condition, as is the original binding, which shows only the faintest evidence of light rubbing at the points (only) of two of the four corners.

New York HarperCollins 2000 0465007147 / 9780465007141 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Fine dust jacket 8vo 8" - 9" tall Signed by Author
Autograph; 288 pages; Inscribed and Signed by the author to Katharine Graham [1917-2001 - Publisher, and later, Chairman of the Board of the Washington Post Company]. Set in the context of the Church Year, The Close is an enthralling account of one young woman's spiritual journey. It is both a personal meditation on faith, in the spirit of Kathleen Norris's Cloister Walk, and a fascinating behind-the-scenes story of a graduate student's first year, in the mode of Scott Turow's One L. Raised in a liberal, interfaith home, Breyer, responding to an inner call to a spiritual vocation, began her training at New York's General Theological Seminary in 1997. She describes her intense immersion in daily prayer, the rigors and rewards of the academic program, and the challenging tension between secular and spiritual that marks her training, including working as a chaplain at Bellevue Hospital. She probes the day-to-day meanings of such profound issues as exaltation, enlightenment, and redemption, illuminating the unique experience of a young person of faith preparing to live and hoping to thrive in a secular modern world.; Signed by Author; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item.
