Item Description: ., 1945. First Edition. This item is a two page letter from Lee F. Harkins of Tulsa to John Braeklein, an architect from New York with ties to Kansas who was a collector of Indian artifacts. The printed letterhead of Harkins reads; Lee F. Harkins | Enrolled Choctaw Indian | Student of Indian Life and Lore | Tulsa, Oklahoma. The letter is dated February 12, 1945. Harkins had visited Braeklein and this follow-up included gratitude and comments about what was seen, discussed, and purchased - leggins (sic) , needlework, plus reference to a book, some magizines, coins, relics. . There was reference to Braecklein going to Oklahoma - Harkin tells him that the train ticket is $11.33 and would take about five hours. There is reference to a Spiro collection. This letter was pasted in an album so they come with the album backing paper. The stationery has a decorative border in a reddish orange and maroon ink and seems to be designed with an Indian design that is very small, but the arrow in the design confirms it. There is an interesting seal above Harkins hand written signature . Harkins asks Bracklein if he has connections to the Heye Foundation in New York City and states that the seal "is the great Choctaw seal used for patents to millions of acres when allotted to my people". It is similar to a notary seal - embossed, circular, without color. Condition of the letter: It is obvious that the paper behind the letter is not acid free, however, there is no foxing, only a slight darkening mostly at the top of the page. Clean. There ar some rough edges at the top of the letter and a chip of the backing paper. These two pages will be packaged flat and carefully protected. ; 8vo; Signed by Author & Illustrator.

Item Description: [London]: January 1st, 1932., 1932. Book Condition: Very good. - Letter penned in blue ink filling 3-1/2 sides of a sheet of cream letterhead folded to form 4 sides, each approximately 7 inches high by 4-1/2 inches wide, with Wilkinson's address printed in blue at the top of the first side. Signed "Nevile Wilkinson". The corners & edges of the letter are lightly creased. Folded twice for mailing. Very good A delightful letter written by Wilkinson to bookbinders Sangorski & Sutcliffe for Titania, "Queen of the Fairies": "Her Iridescence wishes me to ascertain, on her behalf, whether the little volume which Mr. Vaughan brought this evening, is to be considered as a gift from the firm of Sangorski and Sutcliffe to her Private Library at the Palace or if it is only intended as a loan.Needless to say she would be quite delighted to accept the little volume to add to her already famous collection: while on the other hand she quite realizes that it would be a costly gift and will quite understand if it is to be considered a loan."British Army officer Sir Nevile Wilkinson [1869-1940] commissioned the miniature castle from James Hicks & Sons, Irish Cabinet Makers, for his daughter Gwendolen, who claimed to have seen a fairy running under the roots of a tree near their home and felt sorry for the fairies who had to live in underground caves. The palace, designed by Wilkinson and hand-built from 1907 to 1922, had 18 rooms and salons and contained hand-carved mahogany furniture. In 1978, Titania's Palace was auctioned at Christies U.K. but was lost in a bidding war to the Danish toy maker Legoland. From 2007 the palace has been displayed at Egeskov Castle in Denmark.The Mr. Vaughan referred to in the letter is Alexander James Vaughan, a craftsman employed by the royal bookbinders Sangorski & Sutcliffe. He designed miniature buildings for Queen Mary's dollhouse. Bookseller Inventory # 35927

Item Description: Original Handwritten Letter. AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED. Lord Dunsany to his Publisher Mr. [Elkin] Mathews. Undated. [1919?]. Four sides on two sheets of Dunstall Priory letterhead. "[Pegana]" written in an unknown hand at the top of the first page. A letter, presumably in regards to the 1919 third edition of THE GODS OF PEGANA, which saw its first American edition in 1916 - Dunsany writes: "There has been an American edition for 3 years". Dunsany is vehemently contesting the details of an agreement with Mathews to republish one of his works. He argues against several of the clauses, ".Clause VI almost entitled it to be burnt." He writes: "Our conversation referred to one edition, but go ahead and issue more if you like, but not for so long as 5 years. We can always unbind this agreement & I probably would." He mentions Lady Dunsany sending for Heinemann's agreement. He signs his name "Dunsany" diagonally across this final page. Bookseller Inventory # 310231

Scott) Toronto Ontario. Hand written salutation: My dear Mary: Typed body of letter: The last time I saw you was in the Gallery of the House of Commons on the day that Mr. Neville Chamberlain took his seat for the first time as Prime Minister. I was indeed sorry not to be able to have a word with you, either at that moment , or at any other in the course of our stay in London. My time , however, as you know was far from my own throughout the whole of that period . You may have seen that I visited Scotland before Going to the Continent and returning to Canada. While in Scotland, I visited the home in which my father ' s father , John King, was born. It is at Ladysford, near Tyrie , which is near Fraserburgh in Aberdeenshire This visit has caused me to gather together what information I can concerning my father's people. There was no one living, so far as I know who had the same knowledge of my father's father and mother as your own mother. I have always been under the impression that your father's people or your mother's people had been friends of my grandmother Macdougall through the Kings in Scotland . Among the records I have secured, there is one of an Alexander Thom who , in 1863, married a Jane King. As my father had a cousin named Jane , I am wondering whether this marriage might not, in some way have served to link our families . On the other hand, I run not at all sure that the Jane relationship did not come in from the Macdougall, rather than the King side, and it is quite possible that your mother s friendship my grandmother family was through the Macdougalls rather than through the Kings. Do you by any chance recall anything Mrs . Thom may have told you concerning my father's people , or of my father ' s mother's people? Perhaps there is something your mother may have told you that would be of interest, and would help me to trace further along the road of the past , the families that have an immediate association. I shall not be surprised if you have no information or if I should find it difficult to secure much more than I already have. It is amazing how quickly the memories of those who have gone fade into oblivion. I hope you are keeping very well. With my kindest remembrances , Believe me , as always, MacKenzie King signature: Mrs. R. F. Scott, 5 Rosedale Road, Toronto, Ontario William Lyon Mackenzie King, PC, OM, CMG (December 17, 1874 - July 22, 1950) was a Canadian lawyer, economist, university professor, consultant, civil servant, journalist, teacher, and politician.

Item Description: 1930. Darrow Discusses Prohibition with a Colleague Darrow, Clarence [1857-1938]. [Black, Forrest R]. [Autograph Letter, Signed, To Black, On the Letterhead of the Hotel Fenway, Denedin, Florida, February 26]. Single 10-1/2" x 7-1/4" sheet. Some toning, two horizontal fold lines, light soiling to upper right hand corner, otherwise fine. [With] Darrow, Clarence [1857-1938]. The Story of My Life. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1932. xiv, 465 pp. Fourteen plates (with 16 illustrations). First edition, first issue (Scribner "A"). Cloth in moderately worn and lightly soiled multi-color Art Deco dust jacket, light toning to text. Check marks and underlining in pencil to a few pages, interior otherwise clean. $1,950. * Black was a law professor at the University of Kentucky and the author of Ill-Starred Prohibition Cases: A Study in Judicial Pathology (1931), which has a foreword by Darrow. Darrow's letter from February 26 was probably written in 1930 or 1931, the period in which the two exchanged a number of letters about the manuscript of Black's book. Darrow appears to be discussing a passage in the manuscript: "I am convinced that both propositions you are examining would stand the test of law, assuming they ever reached the courts. Of course you and I both know that it would be easier to win on them now than it would have been a few years ago. I can really imagine no argument against it. The only thing that could be said is that it is an effort to do something indirectly that can't be done directly, but that is not a valid objection. It seems to me that essentially every point has been pressed upon." The letter is accompanied by a first edition, first issue, of Darrow's autobiography.
