        [Photo Album]: Women in College

      Massachusetts, 1921. Very Good. Oblong small quarto. Measuring 7" x 10". Stapled black cloth over stiff paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 262 black and white or sepia-toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1" x 1" and 6" x 8", some with captions. Very good album with some chips and tears on the boards and leaves, with near fine photographs some with fading.A photo album compiled by a young woman attending college in Massachusetts beginning in 1919. From street signs it appears she went to Fitchburg Normal School, now Fitchburg State University, in North Central Massachusetts. Many of the photos show the women posed around campus with one photo of the four women huddled together smiling which reads, "fresh freshman," another shows them climbing a sign for Pearl Hill Road. They also visited friends, both men and women, at Harvard. Two photos show members of Fitchburg's girls' basketball team with a caption which reads, "Rah, Rah, Rah!" and another which reads "the victorious five 3 cheers!" Many of the photos show the women posing and being silly with such captions as: "naughty, naughty," "why Vera!," and "asleep at the switch." The women are seen in fashionable outfits, school uniforms, and hats throughout the album. One particularly intriguing image shows a woman, her hat in hand, passionately kissing a female schoolmate with a caption that read: "you mouthwatering Sappho." The women in this set of photos are flirty and smiling and posing on a bridge in a wooded area. After graduating the complier became a school teacher in 1921 and there are photos of her with her class of younger girls posed in a school yard and during a school play. Other photos include family snapshots and vacation photos featuring one of the women posed in her new car and another of a woman with a baseball bat.An compelling collection of photos focusing on a woman's time in college and her relationships with her classmates.

        Eight ALS by Lev L'vovich Tolstoy (1869-1945), the son of Lev Tolstoy, to Jacques Patin (1883-1948), the editor of Figaro

      Paris and Wiesbaden 1921 - Eight single leaves, some folded. Very good, with exception of one letter, with tear and some loss to text. The son of Lev Tolstoy, Lev L'vovich Tolstoy was a firm believer in his father's ideals in his youth, but later became increasingly opposed to his philosophical and ethical ideas. He studied sculpture with Rodin and tried, without success, to become a published writer, as well as writing about his childhood and impressions of his father. In 1918 he emigrated, living in Paris before eventually settling in Sweden. The letters included here date to a period when he wrote articles on his father and was making a difficult living as a journalist. Among other things, they contain his negative reaction to his mother's memoirs, discuss his own writing and plans to publish his recollections, and detail his financial woes. "Je prends la liberté de vous envoyer pour le Figaro un article littéraire, souvenirs personnels sur mon père et deux de ses nouvelles. Vous me rendriez un grand service en les publiant le plus tôt possible, car hélas je dois exister du journalisme." - "Je me permets de vous envoyer ci-jointes quelques pages sur la nouvelle posthume de mon père Le Diable. Je parlais de cette ?uvre dans un article sur la Sonate à Kreutzer, qui a été publié dans le Journal, mais la rédaction n'a pas voulu publier ces pages qui sont pourtant intéressantes. Peut-être pourrez-vous en faire usage en les publiant dans le Figaro ensemble avec le chapitre qui parle des ouvrages de Tolstoï pour le théâtre [.] Je vous suis très obligé pour l'aide que vous m'avez donnée pour la publication de mes souvenirs ainsi que je remercie Monsieur Robert de Flers pour l'article qu'il a publié dans le Figaro. [.] Maintenant, comme je suis sans argent à ce moment et le change est très déplorable pour notre séjour ici, je vous prierais d'avoir l'extrême obligeance de me faire envoyer ici 300-400 francs avec le premier courrier." - "Ma Vie c'est une ignoble escroquerie littéraire et il faut le dire carrément. Le publique est dupé. On achète ce petit livre croyant lire quelque chose de Tolstoï, sa vie, tandis que cela n'est qu'un récit d'une baba russe, un récit d'une langue russe magnifique, mais un rien comme intérêt [.] littéraire.".
