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: 1911. No Binding. Book Condition: Very Good. George Elmer Littlefield (1862-1930) was a printer, minister, and mystical utopian. He founded the utopian colony known as Fellowship Farm in Westwood, Massachusetts, in 1910, and helped to organize and supervise several satellite sites across the country in the following years. This letter from Littlefield, dated August 10, 1911, is addressed to a Dr. Abbott - possibly Leonard Abbott, a fellow printer and educator who helped found the anarchist utopian Ferrer Colony in Stelton, New Jersey in 1915. Ferrer Colony worked cooperatively and established a store with the neighboring Fellowship Farm site in Stelton (established in 1912) while they were both in existence. The letter reads, "I am pleased to send the book you wanted. I especially wrote I'd take the exchange "ad" to the limit of $5.00, hence my reference to that amt. of books in exchange. However, I am pleased to meet your expectations and wants at no exceptional discount to speak of. Trusting you and yours are [illegible] in your works and ideals. I am, yours sincerely, Geo. E. Littlefield" Written on a sheet of Fellowship Farm/Ariel Press letterhead, with blurbs advertising the ideals and functions of each part of the organization printed down the left-hand side of the paper. The paper measures a standard 11" x 8 1/2". Condition: There are three small dampstains along one of the vertical fold lines, and a pin sized hole at one of the intersections of the fold lines.

Item Description: Wood's letter on letterhead of the Gentlewoman Arundel Street Strand WC. 3 January Bickerstaffe-Drew's letter from 6 Holyrood Place Plymouth. 4 January 1894, 1894. Each letter 1p., 4to, Bickerstaffe-Drew's on reverse of Wood's. In fair condition, on aged leaf of paper with strip torn from head. The two letters cast an interesting light on English publishing practice in the late nineteenth century. Wood's letter, signed 'J. S. Wood', is written by a secretary, and addressed to 'The Right Rev Mgr Bickerstaff Drew'. Begins: 'By some strange mishap your book, which you tell me was sent on 27 July got among the books which had been reviewed & was lost sight of until within a few days of your letter.' He has had 'no opportunity of considering it', but sees 'no opportunity of using the novel for some considerable period'. He asks for his 'lowest cash price for the copyright' and ends with the observation: 'To republish a novel under a new name is a risky matter as readers have very long memories'. In Bickerstaffe-Drew's typed letter, on the reverse, he acknowledges 'receipt of the three short tales' and notes 'the non-arrival of the novel Two Fair Ladies'. He points out the situation with Wood (whom he had offered 'republication in serial or any form he chose'), adding: 'I think as I had put the matter in your hands I had better leave it there'. Nevertheless he is sending him his last copy 'to assist your judgment in its regard [.] My offer was that the tale should be republished either with the same title or as "Ursula's Love Story", but in either case as by JOHN AYSCOUGH & not F. B. Drew Bickerstaffe-Drew.'. Bookseller Inventory # 16845

Marty Links writes to American Artist magazine for help in locating the pen points she uses: "For many years I have used a pen point made by Esterbrook (no. 128 elastic pen). They are not making these anymore and I have searched the city of San Francisco for all pen points I can lay my hands on. I have written Esterbrook Co but was only told they had discontinued making them." In a postscript she adds: "My hobby is water color and your water color page concerning techniques of various artists has been a pleasure always. It's the first thing I turn to --".Marty Links was born in Oakland, California and later moved to San Francisco with her family. Her only art training was a six-month attendance at San Francisco's Fashion Art Institute. After her drawings for a major fashion advertising campaign were rejected by an executive who told her 'This isn't what we want. These Kids look more like bobby-soxers", she came up with an idea for a cartoon character. In 1944, she launched her comic strip "Bobby Sox" about a teenager named Mimi, who later morphed into "Emmy Lou". Bookseller Inventory # 31511
