Item Description: No Binding. Book Condition: Very Good. Bert G. Phillips (1868-1956) Aspen Forest Scene Oil on board Board size: 12 7/8” x 8 3/8” Frame size: 17 7/8” x 13 1/2” Signed l.r.: PHillips Inscribed verso: Bert G. Phillips/ Painted/ Mon. May 23 1955/ Taos, New Mexico/ “Aspen Forest Scene” 1955 The clear light of Taos is beautifully illustrated in this painting as the acidic yellow of the Aspen tree leaves is spectacularly set against the vibrant blue and white of the sky, mountainside and clouds. The thick impasto of the paint creates texture within the bold blocks of color and the peaceful atmosphere of the painting reveals the influence of nature upon the artist. Bert Geer Phillips became an accidental resident of Taos, New Mexico in 1898 after his journey to Mexico was aborted due to a broken wagon wheel. Together with his travelling companion, the artist Ernest Blumenschein, he became a founding member of Taos art colony. Of the individuals who formed the Taos Society of Artists, Phillips was the one most deeply involved with the town and pueblo, and never lost his romantic view of Taos. According to Blumenschein, “Phillips is the foundation on which the Taos group built!” (El Palacio, May 1926) By the time Phillips discovered Taos he was thirty years old, and a well-trained artist. At the age of sixteen he left his home in Hudson, New York for five years of study at the Art Students League and the National Academy of Design. Afterwards he spent several years in New York painting and producing commercial illustrations. In 1894 he painted in England then moved on to Paris where he later met Blumenschein and Joseph Sharp, who first informed him of the unique light and abundant subject matter in Taos. In the summer of 1915, Phillips along with Blumenschein, E. Irving Couse, Sharp, Oscar E. Berninghaus, and W. Herbert Dunton joined to form the now famous Taos Society of Artists. At the time, Taos had no commercial galleries, nor many tourists, and it was felt that traveling group exhibitions would attract attention and sales in other parts of the country. The TSA was an instant success. The shows traveled to all the major art cities in America and received enormous publicity throughout the country. Bert Phillips remained in Taos until shortly before his death in 1956. He devoted much of his life to an art based on the visual appeal of the local environment and the relationship of man to nature. As the artist himself proclaimed, “Nothing could be more natural than that a distinctive American art idea should develop on a soil so richly imbued with romance, history and scenic beauty as is to be found in the far famed beautiful Taos Valley and the poetic Indian Village of the Taos Pueblos.”.

Item Description: 1874. (1834-1902, Medical Scientist and Physician, for fifty years at St Thomas's Hospital, London), to Ord's second wife Jane, (née Youl), the Ords's daughter Christine and dog Tartar, with one or two by Caroline (Huskisson), known as Mrs Phillips, also humorous drawings and a title leaf for "Jane Ord's Album", the letters are full of energy, puns and literary allusions, nearly all with one or more extremely skilful and witty pen-drawings. Besides Phillips's own troubles, for Ord's care of which he is extremely grateful, Phillips refers to invitations to the Ords's home in Streatham, imagines their holidays in Northumberland and Swanage, adding his reminiscences of both districts, and talks of the pressure of keeping up his writing (see No. 38, showing him chained to an inkpot like Prometheus to his rock), with much more. With a Checklist. Together 58 items on 99 sides (including 4½ sides by Mrs Caroline Phillips), mostly 8vo, 45 Redcliffe Road (off the Fulham Road), West Brompton, London, 16th January - 31st December 1873 and circa February - April Watts Phillips began as an actor. He was then apprenticed to George Cruikshank (1792-1878), his lifelong friend, and who here comes to breakfast (see Nos. 8 and 10). Phillips studied art in Paris, and returned to work there, mainly as an illustrator. Separated from his wife, he met Caroline Huskisson, who became known as 'Mrs Phillips'. In a curious incident, it was claimed that Phillips's play The Dead Heart plagiarized A Tale of Two Cities, but it was proved that Dickens had been at a reading of the play in manuscript. (They were reconciled in 1865). In 1866 Phillips and Caroline returned to England. Of their four children, (May) Roland Watts-Phillips became an actress. Dr William Ord, besides St Thomas's, had consulting rooms at 11 Brook Street, off New Bond Street (see Nos. 23 and 41). He became eminent from his lectures and as an authority on thyroid. There are many references here to his skill with the microscope and his passion for collecting fossils and plants. He, Jane Ord and Caroline took Phillips's adoration of Jane in good part and the families were good friends. CHECKLIST (Letters are from Watts Phillips to Dr William Ord, unless stated otherwise) DATED (some approximately) 1. 16th January 1873. Self-portrait at work, seated on an egg, whisky on the table.

Item Description: 16 pages on 8 sheets, with envelopes, January 20 and February 20, 1937., 1937. Publishing in obscure amateur journals and garish pulp magazines, Lovecraft excited the imaginations of his readers as few other writers of weird fiction could. As Joyce Carol Oates wrote, Lovecraft's subject was "the continuous assault on the person of unconscious forces of dissolution, disintegration; the collapse of sanity beneath the weight of chaos; the triumph of mindless entities like the subterranean deities Azathoth and Nyarlathotep." In these letters to a young correspondent, the Gentleman of Providence explained the power of his work: "These stories frequently emphasize the element of horror because fear is our deepest and strongest emotion, & the one which best lends itself to the creation of nature-defying illusions. Horror & the unknown or the strange are always closely concreated, so that it is hard to create a convincing picture of shattered natural law or cosmic cleavage & 'outsiderness' without laying stress on the emotion of fear. . This ought to furnish at least a partial answer to your query as to why I always have characters repulsed, horrified, maddened, frozen into merciful silence, or wholly or partly destroyed by the supernal knowledge or contact with the unknown which they seek. Whatever is unknown or alien is necessarily horrible or 'evil'." The second letter was written while Lovecraft was quite ill. He apologizes for his delay in responding, and would in fact die three weeks later, on March 15, 1937. In a long, and richly detailed discussion HPL advises his correspondent on a course of reading of fantastic literature, recommending works by Blackwood, Machen, M. R. James, Chambers, Hodgson, Beckford, Radcliffe, Maturin, Shelley, and other more obscure writers, and offering to lend books by Dunsany. He also remarks on Weird Tales and recommends Lowndes contact others in the field, including Clark Ashton Smith, Willis Conover, William Crawford, and Donald Wollheim, "who is really a tremendously brilliant youth." He is not wholly uncritical, however, and offers some harsh words for his acolytes. "I simply can't cook up the kind of nauseous drivel which brings wide acceptance & substantial returns. [Frank Belknap] Long and [Donald] Wandrei have been pretty well sucked into the vortex of hopeless hackdom. [Robert] Bloch & [Henry] Kuttner & [Duane W.] Rimel still have a fighting chance." Lowndes's tribute to HPL was published in the August 1937 issue of Weird Tales. In both letters, HPL remarks at length on dreams and offers extensive advice on the craft of writing. His counsel fell on fertile ground indeed. His young correspondent, Robert A. W. Lowndes (1916-1998), better known as "Doc," would go on to become one of the most important magazine editors in the field of science fiction, applying his critical acumen to helm a number of pulps, including Future Science Fiction, Science Fiction Quarterly, and Startling Mystery Stories. Like his mentor, Lowndes also became an authority on obscure works of weird fiction. Each of the magazines he edited in the 1960s featured long, brilliantly insightful essays on neglected masters of the form. His columns may be seen as a manifestation of the spirit extended in these letters, guiding thirsty minds to exotic nourishment. Lowndes was also notable for encouraging young writers. He gave F. Paul Wilson and Greg Bear their first professional sales. Perhaps his most signal discovery was in 1967 when he purchased a story from a unpublished writer named Stephen King. "I was about two months shy of my twentieth birthday," King remembered later, "I had been trying for about two years to sell a story to Robert A. W. Lowndes." The story was King's. "That first check was for thirty-five dollars. I've cashed many bigger ones since then, but none gave me more satisfaction." If one imagines an apostolic succession from Lovecraft to King, then Lowndes is the crucial link. The letters are housed in an exquisite custom binding by Stephanie Gibbs. Each sheet is enclosed in an archiva. Bookseller Inventory # 15434

Item Description: 1687. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. First English illustrated Quixote, and a special copy, annotated by a contemporary hand. 1687. London. Printed by Tho. Hodgkin, and are to be sold by John Newton, at the three Pigeons over against the Inner-Temple Gate in Fleet-Street. Folio. [18], 616, [4] pp. [9] leaves of plates. Nineteenth century brown morocco gilt, spine gilt with raised bands, gold tooled edges and triple filet on turn-ins, a.e.g., marbled endpapers. Upper right-hand corner of pp. 572-3 missing without affecting text; paper tears restored on 616 and final 2 leaves. In general a fine copy with interesting annotations. 8,000 $ First illustrated edition in English and first edition of this translation; the predecessor, the 1620 edition only had engraved title pages. A special copy, annotated by a contemporary reader, who provides a running commentary on the text including his personal observations about the text and the grammatical characteristics of this translation, thus evidently familiar with the original Spanish text and the first translation into English. Since Philipps’ translation chose to ignore the number of chapters of the original version, the reader went to the trouble of writing the numbers of these chapters at the start of each chapter of the translation as well as the corresponding pagination. The translator John Phillips was John Milton’s pupil and nephew. The notes to exhibition “El Quijote ilustrado: Siglos XVII-XVIII”, held at the Universidad de Alcalá 2011: ‘Es una edición enriquecida con grabados calcográficos magníficos, llenos de detalles, de pequeñas pinceladas cotidianas, de gestos y ropas que trasladan, de manera ya inevitable, los paisajes y gentes de La Mancha a la campiña inglesa’. This copy was bound for George Rutland Newcastle on Tyne. He was a bookseller, publisher and bookbinder of Newcastle in the middle of the 19th Century. His bindings are highly regarded. “After 1660, travesty became a popular literary device in England as seen in John Phillips’s Don Quixote (1687), a vulgar mockery of the original” (Encylopedia Britannica) “Phillips’s version of Don Quixote, written during the Restoration in England when ideas about the social and cultural expression of humor were being radically transformed, can be viewed more as a translation of Cervantes’s use of a literary text to ridicule and critique contemporary mores than as a faithful translation of the content of the original. Yet Phillips's decision to translate Cervantes was not accidental. Whereas the Restoration ushered in a new sense of the indecorous nature of the burlesque and erotic in literature by the upper ranks of society, Phillips’s choice of subject matter as well as his transformation of the original text signal the English translator’s desire to lay bare the foolishness of his society’s increasing imposition of an empty rhetoric of moral rectitude. (Eli Cohen “El humor del Quijote y la traducción de Phillips de 1687” (2014 Actas del VIII Congreso Internacional de la Asociación de Cervantistas). Provenance: bookplate on front pastedown of R. Spence Watson (8 June 1837 – 2 March 1911) of Newcastle. Robert Spence Watson was an English solicitor, reformer, politician and writer. In 1862 he became Secretary to the Literary and Philosophical Society of Newcastle upon Tyne and held that position for thirty-one years. His work led to the Society accumulating the largest independent library outside London. He was instrumental in the founding of the Newcastle Free Public Library. He helped to found the Durham College of Science in 1871, later to become Armstrong College and part of Newcastle University. He became its first president in 1910. From 1890 until 1911, Watson was the president of the Society of Friends of Russian Freedom. He contributed much to the society's printed organ Free Russia. He published The History of English Rule and Policy in South Africa in 1897, and joined the South Africa Conciliation Committee He became famous for. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-1490539521311

Item Description: Book Condition: Very good. [Various places, as described below. 1920's to 1980's]. [182]pp. of manuscript and typed journals, a total of some 145,000 words. Manuscript and typed essays plotting several musical compositions, approximately [83]pp. More than one hundred letters and postcards (manuscript and typed), from a variety of correspondents to Phillips. Two large scrapbook volumes filled with programs, ephemera, and newspaper clippings. Eighty-seven photographs of varying sizes. The archive, measuring one linear foot, with expected light wear. In very good condition overall. A rich, extensive, archive documenting the life and career of the American composer, pianist, and music teacher, Burrill Phillips. The archive documents most of Phillips's life, with an emphasis on the 1930's and 1940's, when he was composing his best-known work. It includes a journal/memoir of nearly 150,000 words, hundreds of letters to Phillips from noted figures in twentieth century music including Leopold Stokowski, Ulysses Kay, Erno Balogh, and Howard Hanson, correspondence between Phillips and his wife, business records documenting his career, programs for performances of Phillips's compositions, scrapbooks, photographs, and much more. The archive offers rich documentation of his life, works, and artistic process, the business side of a composer's life, and his teaching experiences. It is also indicative of a wider effort to promote the works of American-born composers both in the United States and abroad, especially in the post-World War Two era. Le Roy Burrill Phillips (1907-1988) was born in Omaha, Nebraska, and studied at the Denver College of Music before attending the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. There he studied with Howard Hanson and Bernard Rogers, and earned bachelor and master's degrees, the latter in 1933. Upon graduating he joined the faculty and taught at the Eastman School until 1949. His first important orchestral work, "Selections from McGuffey's Reader," based on poems by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Oliver Wendell Holmes, was composed just after his graduation. It "was an immediate success and established his reputation as a composer with a consciously American style" (Basart). Over the next several decades Phillips composed numerous noteworthy works, and he was very versatile in his output, creating music for orchestras and ensembles, for ballet, the stage, and for film. "The elements of his early style - an emphasis on melodic line, a rich harmonic texture, and rhythmic associations with jazz - had evolved by the late 1930s and early 1940s into a drier, more acerbic idiom, with asymmetrical rhythms and broadened expressiveness. Many of the works written in the 1940s and 1950s reveal a new intensity and compression" - Basart. Phillips taught composition and theory not only at the Eastman School but also at the University of Illinois from 1949 to 1964, and for a brief time at Juilliard and Cornell. He taught several important conductors, and was himself twice a Guggenheim Fellow (in the 1940's and 1960's), and a Fulbright lecturer. Phillips was married in 1928 and his wife, Alberta, wrote many of his librettos. The couple had two children, a son and a daughter. Their daughter, the actress Ann Todd, was raised by her maternal grandparents. The foundation of this archive is a lengthy, detailed journal/memoir by Burrill Phillips, documenting his life from 1923 to 1943, a total of some 145,000 words. Comprised of a long typescript and a shorter manuscript volume (some 182 pages in all) Phillips relates the events of his life, the development of his interest in music, his education and growth as a composer, his marriage to Alberta Phillips, and much more. Burrill Phillips was passionate about music from an early age, and confident in his abilities. He began writing songs and operettas while still a teenager. Early in his memoir he mentions writing a song and beginning a "musical epic." As a teenager, he wrote: "I have just begun to reali. Bookseller Inventory # 1595

Item Description: Hexagono, La Plata, Argentina, 1971. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: very good. A complete set of Hexagono’71 edited by Edgardo Antonio Vigo between 1971 and 1975 missing only 4 of the 70 contributions (replaced by colour xeroxes of the items). A seminal artist’s periodical featured in the MoMA library exhibition The Unmaker of Objects: Edgardo Antonio Vigo’s Marginal Media, 2014. Hexagono 71 was distributed as an envelope containing loose-leaf illustrations, woodcuts, drawings, silkscreen posters, visual poems, essays, photo montage, collage, tickets with stamps, photocopy works and mail art elements, by Argentinian and international contributors. An important mail art periodical of the South American avant-garde that mixed experimental art and literature with a political sensibility: indeed, Hexagono 71 was inaugurated during the dictatorship of 1966–73 and many of the works engage with the violence of the military regime. The issues were systematized using a lettering system, as opposed to numbers, and its covers often printed a logo design in varying colours, with cut-out labels attached with thread and circular perforations. Contributors to each issue include: A – Vigo; G.Celant; C.Ginzburg; J.Gerz. AB – Vigo; C.Padin; Klaus and Renate Groh; J.Gerz. AC – Vigo; D.Higgins.

Item Description: Sauk City: Arkham House, 1939. First Edition. One of the most important publications in the history of the genre. Virtually unknown during his lifetime except to a small group of young admirers, Lovecraft's fame has steadily risen since his untimely death at the age of 46. Today his influence on the modern literary imagination is inestimable, and his praises have been sung by such diverse writers as Joyce Caol Oates, Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, and Jorge Luis Borges. He was the first genre writer to have his work collected in the Library of America, and his works have inspired a number of films and countless literary imitations. This book, one of only 1200 copies printed, introduced Lovecraft to his first wider readership, and was hailed instantly as a classic. A fine copy in the original dustwrapper illustrated by Virgil Finlay. The jacket has a very small chip to the base of the spine panel, which has the remnants of a small old tape reinforcement to the interior. There is some light shelfwear at the head of the spine and the points. A superior example of a rare and desirable book. Bookseller Inventory # 8718
