Los Angeles, CA, USA

Estimated Price: $1,200 - $1,500

Description: Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth. (1807-82) American poet, educator, and linguist, famous for poems such as "The Song of Hiawatha," "Evangeline," and "Paul Revere's Ride." Autograph letter signed ("Henry W. Longfellow"), 3 pages, 7 by 4 1/2 in., Cambridge, June 20, 1879. To Helen Hamlin, with holograph manuscript poem signed ("Henry W. Longfellow) titled "The Pen," 1 1/2 pages, 8 x 7 1/8 in. To the daughter of Augustus Hamlin, once Surgeon-General of Maine, Longfellow sends thanks for the gift of a pen, made of iron from the prison of Chillon, where Francois de Bonnivard was held, wood from the U.S.S. Constitution, and gems from Siberia, Ceylon, and Maine, and he encloses a holograph manuscript of a poem about that pen: "Today I send you some lines, not written with the Pen, but about the Pen. I find that my hand is fettered by that bit of Bonnivard's chain and moves more easily with a lighter quill...." Longfellow closes with a postscript suggesting "Perhaps at some future day, if you have no objection, I may like to publish these lines in the Atlantic." In fact he published them in Harper's, in Dec. 1879, in a considerably longer version (10 stanzas very scarce. 4 here) as "The Iron Pen". Stained & browned at edges. With remnants of mounting hinges. The poem says, in part: "I thought this Pen would arise, From the casket where it lies, By itself would arise, and write My thanks and my Surprise! / When you gave it me under the pines, I dreamed these gems from the mines Of Siberia, Ceylon and Maine, Would glimmer as thoughts in the lines; / That this iron link from the chain Of Bonnivard might retain Some verse of the Poets who sang Of this prisoner and his pain; / And forever this gift will be As a blessing from you to me, As a drop of the dew of your youth On the leaves of my aged tree." Signed and dated June 20, 1879. Estimated Value $1,200 - 1,500 Sotheby's New York, Dec 7, 1999, lot 65.

Contemporary Musical Automaton Portrait of John F. Kennedy by Christian Bailly, 2015

50997 Köln , Germany

Estimated Price: €15,000 - €20,000

Description: Contemporary Musical Automaton Portrait of John F. Kennedy by Christian Bailly, 2015 Depicting President Kennedy at work at his desk, with plaster-composition character head, brown glass eyes and moulded hair, seated at ebonized writing desk with quill pen and a battery-powered brass lamp, dressed in grey wool suit, spotted tie and hand-sewn leather shoes, with single-air going-barrel movement in body playing "Happy Birthday" and brass key signed "C.B.", height 21 ½ in. (55 cm), base 12 in. (30 cm) x 17 ¾ in. (45 cm). - Inspired by Gustave Vichy's automaton "Pierrot Ecrivain" of c. 1895, Bailly portrays the 35th president of the United States engaged with official correspondence: a telegram to Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. - The President's thoughts, however, appear to be on the photographs of Marilyn Monroe that lie on his table, for - as the lamp light dims - he pauses and his head falls, as though on the verge of sleep. Waking, he turns up the lamp and continues writing. - The automaton is accompanied by the theme "Happy Birthday", recalling Marilyn Monroe's unforgettable performance of "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" at Madison Square Garden, New York, on 19 May 1962 - just three weeks before her sudden death. - This contemporary automaton by Christian Bailly completes his political trilogy, after Presidents Barack Obama in 2013 and Vladimir Putin in 2014. - Literature: Bailly, "Automata, the Golden Age", pp. 74-75. - A unique animated portrait. Watch & Listen on:-------------------------------Youtube.com/AuctionTeamBreker Musik-Puppenautomat "Portrait von Präsident John F. Kennedy", 2015 Politischer Puppenautomat von Christian Bailly, Paris. Nach dem klassischen Vorbild "Pierrot Ecrivain" von Gustave Vichy, um 1895. Er zeigt den 35. Präsidenten der Vereinigten Staaten an seinem Schreibtisch bei offizieller Korrespondenz: ein Telegramm an den sowjetischen Premier Nikita Chruschtschow. Charakterkopf aus Gips, braune Glasaugen, modelliertes Haar, an einem Schreibtisch, mit Schreibfeder und batteriebetriebener Petroleumlampe aus Messing, bekleidet mit grauem Wollanzug, gepunkteter Krawatte und handgenähten Lederschuhen, Korpus mit Federwerkmotor, Mechanik und Walzenspielwerk, mit "C.B.-"Messingschlüssel, Höhe 55 cm, Grundmaße 30 x 45 cm. - Die Gedanken des Präsidenten scheinen aber tatsächlich bei Marylin Monroe zu sein, deren Photos auf dem Schreibtisch liegen, das Lampenlicht wird schwach, sein Kopf sinkt nach vorne, und er nickt leicht ein. Aufwachend dreht Kennedy das Licht wieder hoch und schreibt weiter. Die Bewegungen der Puppe werden von der Melodie "Happy Birthday" begleitet und erinnert an "Happy Birthday, Mr. President", Marylin Monroes unvergesslicher Auftritt am 19. Mai 1962 im Madison Square Garden, nur 3 Wochen vor ihrem plötzlichen Tod. - Literatur: Bailly, "Automata, the Golden Age", S. 74-75. - Dieser zeitgenössische Automat von Christian Bailly komplettiert seine politische Trilogie: nach Präsident Barack Obama, 2013, und Vladimir Putin, 2014. - Ein einmaliges Porträt!
