William Saroyan dramatic signed photograph of the playwright at work

by Lion Heart Autographs

May 15, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $200 - $400

Description: SAROYAN, WILLIAM. (1908-1981). American writer and playwright; author of The Time of Your Life for which he was awarded the 1940 Pulitzer Prize (which he rejected). SP. (“Bill Saroyan”). 1p. Small 4to. New York, September 1953. Inscribed to the president of Columbia Records, GODDARD LIEBERSON (1911-1977), best remembered for introducing the LP or long-playing microgroove record. A dramatically lit black-and-white photograph by American photojournalist Dan Weiner of a seated Saroyan at work on his typewriter with a cigarette in his mouth, a hat placed rakishly on his head, and a piano in the background. ----- “For Goddard Lieberson – Music and words, or talk (from me, that is) from the writer by the sea & I can’t figure it out, either – thanks Bill Saroyan Sept 1953 [illegible]” ----- In 1928, following the publication of his first article by Detroit’s Boulevardier, Saroyan left his native Fresno, California to seek his fortune in New York. Returning home the following year, he published poems and his first short story, The Broken Wheel, reprinted, under the pseudonym Sirak Goyan, in Edward J. O’Brien’s 1934 Best Short Stories. That same year, the appearance of The Daring Young Man on the Flying Trapeze established Saroyan’s reputation as one of the finest short-story writers of his generation. He later turned to playwriting and screenwriting, and wrote several volumes of autobiography and autobiographical fiction. Weiner, a photographer for Fortune magazine, specialized in photographs of people at work, of which ours is a fine, well composed, example. Inscription is unevenly written over a light part of the image. Archivally matted and fine. Especially uncommon in this format.

Ring Lardner rare typed letter signed by the American humorist

by Lion Heart Autographs

May 15, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $800 - $1,000

Description: "I haven’t yet felt lyrical, but expect to shortly" - LARDNER, RING. (1885-1933). American journalist and author. TLS. (“Ring Lardner”). 2/3p. 4to. New York, “July something” [after 1929]. Written on the letterhead of New York’s Doctor’s Hospital. To Dr. Boland. ----- “I have been on what you might call a spree. Please tell the desolate nurses on the ninth floor that I will write as soon as I am allowed to. I should like to know whether you enjoyed St. Patrick’s night. And please tell Mons. Esperence that I haven’t yet felt lyrical, but expect to shortly.…” ----- Lardner’s success as a fiction writer commenced in 1914 with the publication of his “Jack Keefe” letters in the Saturday Evening Post. He continued to produce humorous sketches, hailed both for their mordant wit and conversational tone, the result of his many years as a reporter. Lardner’s characteristic use of the vernacular was admired by such respected critics as H.L. Mencken and William McFee, for whom it represented a “‘fundamentally American’” style, (quoted in DAB). Lardner was a close friend of F. Scott Fitzgerald, whose Abe North character in Tender is the Night was modeled on Lardner. Ernest Hemingway was also an admirer and penned articles for his high school newspaper under the name “Ring Lardner, Jr.” From 1919 to 1933, Lardner lived on Long Island. Around 1926, he contracted tuberculosis and spent much of the last seven years of his life hospitalized. Folded with some age toning. In very good condition and rare; we could find only two letters sold at auction in the last forty years.

Prince Charles & Princess Diana Christmas card signed by both

by Lion Heart Autographs

May 15, 2015, 12:00 PM EST

New York, NY, USA

Estimated Price: $1,700 - $2,000

Description: CHARLES, PRINCE OF WALES (b.1948). Heir apparent to the British throne. ALS. ("Charles"). 1p. Oblong 12mo. N.p., N.d. Additionally signed by Charles' wife, DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES (1961-1997, "Diana"). Written on a blue engraved correspondence card crowned by the Prince of Wales' heraldic badge. ----- "To you both with every best wish for Xmas from us both -- Charles and Diana." ----- In 1981, Prince Charles of England married Lady Diana Spencer, daughter of the 4th Baron Fermoy, in a much-publicized "fairy-tale" wedding. The couple bore two children, William and Harry, who follow their father in the line of succession. Unfortunately, the couple's intractable marital difficulties led to extramarital affairs beginning in 1986, and media reports of their indiscretions became a staple of the tabloids. In 1992, Prime Minister John Major announced their intention to separate and, in 1996, the pair divorced. Though stripped of her royal title, Diana retained her fame, which she used to promote humanitarian causes while maintaining a residence at Kensington Palace. Her life was cut short by an automobile accident in Paris in 1997. Prince Charles married Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005, and is well-known for his charity work and commitment to human rights, urban planning, alternative medicine, and environmental causes including organic farming. Three small pin holes do not affect any writing; otherwise fine and uncommon.

WILL (WILLIAM RODERICK) JAMES - Oil on canvas

by Stanford Auctioneers

May 17, 2015, 8:00 AM PST

Phoenix, AZ, USA

Estimated Price: $70,000 - $80,000

Description: Will (William Roderick) James (Canadian/American, 1892 - 1942). "Castles in the Sky". Oil on canvas. c1930s. Signed "Will James," lower left. Oil paintings by Will James are very rare. Overall very good condition. Professionally lined as canvas was weak and brittle, preserving the original stretcher. Examined under blacklight. Signature contemporaneous to the painting; some inpainting at time of lining, primarily in the sky, a few touch ups here and there; no inpainting to the signature, nor the bush above the signature, nor the horse and human figures, nor to the hat; the only paint loss is a small flake in the middle of the bush, lower left, virtually unnoticeable because of its position. The wood frame is not the original frame and is in decent condition, with some minor losses and scuffs to the edges. Joseph Ernest Nephtali Dufault, later to be known as Will James, was born on June 6, 1892, in Quebec, Canada. At a young age, he departed Canada and traveled to the United States, working and drifting primarily as a cowboy. He served in the army and soon began selling his sketches. In 1920 he married, and shortly after that, he had a brief period of study at Yale University. During his writing career he wrote and illustrated 23 books in all, with appeal to a wide audience. His art appeared in the pages of books and periodicals, as well as illustrating the works of other authors. Will James spent his latter years at his home in Billings, Montana, and on his ranch, the “Rocking R Ranch” at Pryor Creek, Montana. During his lifetime, he was fortunate to watch his popularity grow, as he witnessed movies made from his books. Despite his popularity and success as a novelist and artist, James had a tragic life. He served a short prison term for rustling, experienced an unpleasant marriage, and had a severe alcohol dependency. His life ended at the early age of 50 in 1942 (Courtesy: AskART). Image size: 14 x 18 in. (356 x 457 mm). [18292] |50000| {R100} azzzz~rzzzz

CONRAD MARTENS, (1801 – 1878), STORM OVER NORTH HEAD, 1856, watercolour heightened with gouache and gum arabic on paper

Description: CONRAD MARTENS, (1801 – 1878), STORM OVER NORTH HEAD, 1856, watercolour heightened with gouache and gum arabic on paper SIGNED: signed and dated lower right: C Martens / 1856 DIMENSIONS: 45.0 x 65.0 cm PROVENANCE: Possibly William Brown Esq., Sydney, 12 February 1856 (recorded in Martens’ Account book as ‘View from above Vaucluse’) Walker's Galleries, London Miss Barbara Knox, London (purchased from the above in 1951) Thence by descent to her nephew Mr M.E.K. Adams, Sydney (1967) Thence by descent Private collection, Sydney ESSAY: In the mid-1850s Martens reached the peak of his artistic achievements and was at the height of his technical powers. Influenced by the late atmospheric works of J.M.W. Turner, he built upon earlier studies of meteorological and cloud effects from his time on HMS Beagle with Charles Darwin and Captain Robert FitzRoy, and his own considerable expertise as an artist. The results were a series of superbly rendered, large-scale, dark-toned watercolours of dramatic storm scenes from high vantage points around Sydney Harbour depicting expansive vistas where the sky is as much the subject of the works as the harbour and foregrounds. Storm over North Head, 1856 is a particularly fine example of this oeuvre in Martens’ artistic production with its wide sweep over Sydney Harbour from the heights of Vaucluse across to Manly Cove in the distance, and to the right North and South Heads and the semi-circle of Watsons Bay, with ships taking shelter from the storm. In a series of brilliant theatrical touches, Martens has illuminated the road to South Head past the Macquarie Lighthouse as a counterpoint on the far right which in turn offsets the main central focal point of sunlight on the water. Moving to the foreground, the sun’s rays catch the sandstone rock and tree trunk angled like punctuation points as an immediate visual focus. This is further emphasised in the bravura compositional effects of parallel diagonals formed by the line of looming storm clouds moving through the centre of the image and echoed by the tree highlighted in the left foreground. This pinnacle of Martens’ career lasted only few years. While he maintained his output and sales of paintings to the end of his life, by the 1860s his health was declining and he had to take a job as Assistant Parliamentary Librarian to supplement his income, leaving less time and ability for painting. His storm pictures of the 1850s therefore represent a triumphant late blossoming of his artistic powers never attained again. Storm over North Head is particularly impressive because of its fine original condition. It retains its original intense colouration and impeccably applied layers of washes and highlights which enhance the complexity and subtlety of the composition and consummate handling of the watercolours. In this work we can appreciate just how accomplished an artist Martens was at the height of his artistic career. This is almost certainly the painting listed in Conrad Martens’ Account Book (Dixson Library, State Library of NSW) on 12 February 1856 as View from above Vaucluse; purchaser ‘William Brown Esq. for £21’. Brown ran a Sydney trading company, William Brown & Co., wine merchants. For some years he and his family lived at ‘Cheverells’, Darlinghurst (now Kings Cross) until their departure for England in 1862. During World War II ‘Cheverells’ became the American Red Cross Officers' Leave Club; its site is now the Gazebo Apartments. Since 1951, when it was acquired by Miss Barbara Knox, the painting has been held in the possession of the Knox family and descendants. It was displayed in their home, ‘Rona’ in Bellevue Hill, Sydney, which was built in 1883 by Edward William Knox, until 1967 when the work was bequeathed to her nephew, Mr M.E.K. Adams and thence by descent to the current owners. ELIZABETH ELLIS OAM

Estimated Price: €500 - €700

Description: IRISH PARLIAMENT. An account of the sessions of Parliament in Ireland, 1692 - London: 1693. 4to. pp. [iii], 28. A very good copy in modern quarter calf. Wing I 297. No copy located on COPAC. This is an apologia for the actions by members of the first session of the William and Mary Irish Parliament. They fell foul of Henry Sidney, earl of Romney, the newly appointed Lord Lieutenant who charged them that they had not answered the Ends for which they were called together, but had behaved themselves undutifully and ungratefully, in invading their Majesties Prerogative. As for a sequel the anonymous writer reports: It can not be avoided to mention here as an effect of this unparalellƒd displeasure of his Excellency against the House of Commons, that within a few days after the Prorogation, one of the Members was affronted in the Castle by Brigadeer Stewart, and Mr Watson, Steward to his Excellency, with his White Rod in his hand, and others his Excellencyƒs servants, without the least

by Adam's

May 12, 2015, 11:00 AM GMT

Estimated Price: €400 - €600

Description: WALKER, George. A true account of the siege of London-derry - London: 1689. Licensed Sept 13. 4to. pp. 59, 1 (Advertisement). A very good copy in modern half calf. Wing W 350. A legendary description of this dramatic siege by the prime mover in the action. In its day it evoked much controversy, with the Presbyterian participants in the defence feeling that their contribution to the final victory had not been given due credit and the absence of the names of the ministers is noteworthy. After the dedication to William and Mary, there follows a two page description of the city and its defences. The ensuing diary contains some splendid set-pieces even if oneƒs credulity is stretched at times. An example of the good and the bad: July 2. The enemy drive the poor protestants, according to their threatning, under our walls, protected and unprotected, and under great distresses. Our men at first did not understand the meaning of such a crowd, but fearing they might be enemies fired upon them;
