Descripción:

Irish-born American poet whose work is infused with Irish legend; books include verse collections "A Hosting of Heroes" (1911) and "Singing Fires of Erin" (1916). Two items: First, an ALS, 1p, 5½" X 8½", New York, NY, 1922 January 7. Addressed to Albert Johannsen (1871-1962), a University of Chicago geology professor who authored "The House of Beadle and Adams and Its Dime and Nickel Novels" (1950), the definitive reference work on the subject. Near fine. Nice content summing up her work: "My poetry in general has been so sheerly devoted to Beauty, and the stanzas of nearly all the poems are so interwoven, that I find it very difficult to give a single representative quotation. While the stanzas enclosed are not, I know, my best, yet they do represent two very strong and dominating sentiments of my life." Large bold signature. Second, an AQS, 1p, 8½" X 11", n.p., 1922 January 7. Near fine. Cox introduces one stanza celebrating her Irish heritage and another celebrating her adopted homeland. "Representative of my love for my birth-land, Ireland, here is the concluding stanza of a poem, pencilled in a note-book, on beholding, from the deck of the 'Cameronia' in the mists of the early morning, the lights of Tory Island (Summer of 1913)," followed by these lines: "Ireland! Ireland! Ireland! / Gleaning to greet us there -- / Flame on the hills of our souls thou art, / Vision and Dream and Prayer." She then introduces a second stanza: "And representative of my devotion to the United States is this stanza from a poem entitled 'Our Country,'" with an 8-line verse, "Yes! our Country. Say it over / In some phrase divinely wrought; / Words that shall contain the essence / Of our souls, our lives, our thought. / Land to Freedom consecrated -- / Mount and stream and fertile sod, / Land upon whose forehead, star-like, / Shines the name of Freedom's God." Boldly signed in full at the conclusion. Accompanied by Johannsen's original 8½" X 11" file folder, bearing a printed "Collection of Albert Johannsen" label (partly filled in by Johannsen).

Descripción 4 pp. 7 x 4½ inches, in good condition, a few minor tears only. Margate, 30 April 1877. A wonderful letter by John Liptrot Hatton (1808-1886), composer, pianist and singer, praised by the New Grove as "the inventor, or at least one of the earliest exponents, of a kind of popular one-man show, in which he spoke, played the piano, and sang to his own accompaniment". In this letter he describes "My Sacred Drama - the word Oratorio is too ponderous for the character of my work - it being most dramatic - especially when part II begins - then we have old Sennacherib with the Assyrian Host - Warriors - Dancing Girls - Trombones - Big drums - Cymbals - Triangles - Tambourines, etc. kick up a d_l of a row. I can’t tell yet - when or where it is likely [to] come out - you shall know when the time comes.". Nº de ref. de la librería 7211

Descripción This prolific American editor, author and translator (his 17 languages included Russian, French, Italian, Greek and Latin) was an intimate of Emerson, Whitman, Longfellow, Holmes, Bryant, Lowell, Howells, Whittier, Hale, Higginson and Howe -- among others. Two items: First, an ALS, 2pp (single leaf), 6" X 7", Jamaica Plain, MA, 1923 March 15. Addressed to Albert Johannsen (1871-1962), a University of Chicago geology professor who authored "The House of Beadle and Adams and Its Dime and Nickel Novels" (1950), the definitive reference work on the subject. Near fine. Amusing apology to an admirer, reading in part: "This morning I have been Schliemannizing my desk and there amongst the debris of many I have filed on top of one another I find your addrest envelop -- oddly enough with one end eaten or bitten off by Tempus edax rerum. That explains the rope with which it is bound. So now I copy off a bit of Pushkin -- which is not quite so good a translation as I with it were, tho it reproduces the rhythm of the original and perhaps gives a hint of its charm and simplicity." ("Tempus edax rerum" is a Latin phrase credited to Ovid: "Time, that devours all things.") Second, the aforementioned "bit of Pushkin," an AQS, 1p, 8½" X 11", n.p., n.y. Near fine. Titled "The Free Life of the Bird / (From the Russian of Alexander Pushkin)," the 4-stanza poem that follows is handsomely penned in rich brown ink, and is signed large in full by Dole at the conclusion. Poem begins: "Painful labors, grievous sorrows / Never on God's birdling rest, / And it fears no dark tomorrows, / Builds itself no lasting nest." Accompanied by Johannsen's original 8½" X 11" file folder, bearing a printed "Collection of Albert Johannsen" label (partly filled in by Johannsen). A delightful piece from this famed translator -- and a quite uncommon autograph. Nº de ref. de la librería 26891

Descripción Cambridge, MA. 18 February 1881., 1881. Two pages, on two leaves of plain letter paper. Old mailing folds, manuscript with some offset along verso at one edge and tanning at two margins of recto (all from having been mounted at one time), letter has a few rust marks in right margin, otherwise very good. The quotation consists of the last four lines from Longfellow's poem, "A Psalm of Life," is signed in full at the conclusion, dated Feb. 18, 1881, and inscribed "For Edward W. Bok," presumably the then 18 year old future editor / publisher. The covering letter, is addressed "Dear Sir," but the recipient inferentially was Bok's father, as Longfellow writes: "It gives me much pleasure to comply with your request. I enclose the autograph you desire for your son, and am Yours very truly, Henry W. Longfellow." Bok went to work for Henry Holt and Co. in 1882 (the year following this transaction), and eventually ascended in prominence as editor of the LADIES' HOME JOURNAL.

Descripción The first nine letters largely concern Ardizzone's illustrations, and choice of accompanying quotations, for Harvey's wine lists, which were designed by Lewis. 'No, no, no. Writing is not for me', he writes in November 1962, in response to the offer of writing a book. 'The project sounds tempting, but when I think of the planning & research involved plus the agony of writing 18,000 words I shudder at the prospect & feel I must refuse.' In a much later letter, he mentions that 'I am still being hopelessly overworked by the Bodley Head & have enough on my plate to keep me going for a year'. His last letter passes on the news that Lynton Lamb has had a stroke and is having difficulty with his speech and sight. The folio size printed circular, dated 1969, reproduces a drawing by Ardizzone along with the handwritten text. Crossing out his full printed name, and signing it 'Ted', he adds: 'Do forgive me for sending this tear jerker, but it had to be.' Ardizzone had earlier contributed illustrations to Lewis's A Handbook of Type and Illustration, published in 1956. They remained friends until Ardizzone's death in 1979.

Descripción 7 March 1878, Boston, 1878. paper. On a (6-7/8" x 9") piece of paper the author has written the following seven-line stanza from one of his best known poems "The Chambered Nautilus": "Build thee more stately mansions, O my soul,/As the swift seasons roll!/Leave thy low-vaulted past!/Let each new temple, nobler than the last,/Shut thee from heaven with a dome more vast,/Till thou at length art free,/Leaving thine outgrown shell by life’s unresting sea!" Below this he has SIGNED "Oliver Wendell Holmes/Boston, March 10th 1888." On the verso of the paper (though not on the exact reverse side of the poem, so that one could cut the paper and have two separate autographed pieces), is a brief AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED by Holmes to a Miss Wright: "It gives one pleasure to comply with our slight request. Please turn this leaf. Very truly yours OW Holmes. Boston, March 10th 1888." The nautilus is a sea creature that lives inside a spiral shell. As it grows, it makes new, larger chambers of its shell in which to live, closing off the old chambers and gradually forming a spiral. Holmes uses the nautilus as a metaphor for the human soul, emphasizing the idea that humans expand their horizons until they achieve the spiritual freedom of heaven or the afterlife. One of the most enduring nature poems of the nineteenth century, "The Chambered Nautilus" was first published in the periodical THE ATLANTIC MONTHLY and then in book form in Holmes's 1858 classic THE AUTOCRAT OF THE BREAKFAST TABLE. Normal light creases. A Fine example from this noted author and doctor. Nº de ref. de la librería 015372
