I hope, by the way, that in sending you the stories enclosed herein [not present] (The Girl With the Brown-Paper Parcel & The Soul of the Apple) that you will not feel that I am snowing you under with MS. I am sending them because of a prospectus from Leslie's which I rec'd a short time ago ....''; "You will have seen the recent statement of a school-master that the boy's mind is a 'pig-sty,' only to be kept in order by severe discipline in Latin & Greek. The enclosed lines are by way of rebuttal on behalf of the school-boy ....''; and "Here I am once more wallowing innocently with the bears--& this is just a line to thank you for the friendly way you helped me, during my little emergency ... I know you'll be glad to hear that I am to get my hundred a week from Block, had no difficulty at all about it ....''

        Modes et Manieres d'Aujourd'hui

      1921. First Edition . Signed. MARTY, André AND BERNARD, Tristan. Modes et Manières d’Aujourd’hui. Huitième Année. 1919. (Paris): Collection Pierre Corrard, (1921). Folio, original half ivory and decorative paper boards, plates loose as issued, original cloth ties. Housed in a custom slipcase. $9500.Limited first edition of Modes et Manières d’Aujourd’hui, Volume VIII for the year 1919, number 4 of only 12 copies issued on Japon (of 300 copies), featuring 12 loose pochoir color plates, accompanying suite of 12 uncolored plates, and original matted watercolor signed by French artist Andre Edouard Marty, the leading Art Deco artist whose work, like that of Barbier and others, “made fashion the art of the day instead of art being the fashion” (Metropolitan Museum of Art), with 12 leaves of accompanying text in French by popular playwright and novelist Tristan Bernard, rarely found complete in the original portfolio.This original limited edition portfolio highlights the splendid Art Deco artistry of Andre Edouard Marty, who shared with Georges Barbier, Charles Martin and others a love of “elegance and luxe… They fused their styles from a heady mix: Japanese woodblock prints, classical Greek and Roman art, modern stage and costume design, and the cinema… The result of this alchemy was a new way of illustrating the figure” (Torre, 20th-Century Fashion Illustration, 33). “As Vogue reported in the June 15, 1914 issue, these ‘young men of birth and Beaux Arts training… made fashion the art of the day instead of art being the fashion… artistic modernism provided a crucial link between haute couture and high culture” (Metropolitan Museum of Art). Marty, also well known for his theatre posters, was one of an elite group of only four artists who contributed yearly to Gazette du Bon Ton (1912-25) and his images were regularly featured in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Modes et Manières d’Aujord’hui and other publications.This rare complete Volume VIII of Modes et Manières d’Aujourd’hui, for the year 1919, in the original portfolio, additionally contains 12 corresponding short works by noted French author Tristan Bernard, each printed in green and black on an individual leaf, loose as issued. Born Paul Bernard, the Jewish playwright and novelist was a member of the influential circle, La Revue Blanche. Well known in Paris, his witty “bon mots were so famous that for three decades he was credited with many of the jokes current in France. Bernard wrote several novels, notably Les Mémoires d’un jeune homme rangé (1899)… he is best remembered, however, as the author of such hilarious comedies as Les pieds nickelés (1895)… He was arrested by the Nazis during WWII but was released following the intervention of influential friends” in 1943. Weakened by his imprisonment he died in Paris four years later (Encyclopedia Judaica). Featured in this exquisite limited edition collection are 12 loose pochoir color plates La Démobilisation, Le Matin Dans le Parc, Le Répétition Générale, Le Golf, Le Ciné, Le Bal de Sauvages, Racing, A L’Oasis, La Jupe Lumineuse, Le Samedi a Médrano, La Rythmique, Chez L’Antiquaire, and Les Ailes Dans le Vent. These are accompanied by a suite of 12 respective uncolored plates, and an original matted watercolor of Le Golf, signed by Marty. Volume VIII of Modes et Manières d’Aujourd’hui, which first appeared in 1912: a hghly influential Art Deco fashion periodical, each of its volumes contains plates by a featured artist and text by a featured writer. Publication ceased in 1923 with a total of 7 volumes, each limited to a total of 300 copies. Complete volumes in the original portfolios are quite rare. Plates and text very fresh, small bit of early tape reinforcement to inner seams of portfolio.

        Trembling of a Leaf

      1921. MAUGHAM, W. Somerset. The Trembling of a Leaf. London: William Heinemann, (1921). Small octavo, original dark blue cloth gilt, original dust jacket. $3800.Scarce first English edition, one of only 3000 copies, of Maugham’s collection of “little Stories of the South Sea Islands,” including his famous, frequently adapted story, “Rain.” A beautiful copy.Maugham's collection of tales set in Hawaii, Samoa and Tahiti ""established him as a short story writer… [In the book he] filed the patent on a certain kind of story, set in the tropics and usually describing the undoing of the characters because they have failed to understand their surroundings. The collection included his most famous story, 'Rain'… Critics agreed that here was something they had not seen before. The Bookman in November said the stories were 'as savage and gripping as some of the paintings by Goya.' The Saturday Review… said that 'each tale is begun by inspiration and completed by artistic perfection'… James Michener wrote in 1952 that 'one of the evil limitations put upon anyone who wants to write about the South Pacific is that he must stop reading Maugham… At the same time I must admit that before I start to do any writing about this vast area I usually take down 'Rain' and reread those first three paragraphs to remind myself of how completely one can set a physical stage in a few absolutely correct observations'"" (Morgan, 256-58). ""Rain,"" Maugham's celebrated story of a missionary's attempts to convert the prostitute Sadie Thompson, has been adapted to film numerous times—a 1928 silent movie starring Gloria Swanson and Lionel Barrymore; a 1932 film starring Joan Crawford and Walter Huston; and a 3-D feature in 1953 starring Rita Hayworth and José Ferrer—and was the basis of a 1944 stage play, Sadie Thompson.

Die Situation des Angeklagten im "Prozeß", - der Stand des Uneingeladenen und Landfremden im "Schloß", - die Hilfslosigkeit eines unerfahrenen Kindes mitten in dem von Leben tobenden "Amerika". - hier sind drei Grundtatsachen, deren geheimnisvoll Gemeinsames durch die Kunst Kafklas klar und symbolhaft, jedoch stets durchaus ohne die übliche Symbolsprache und im einfachsten Ausdruck der Wirklichkeit hervortritt. ... In allen drei Romanen geht es um die Einordnung des Einzelnen in die menschliche Gemeinschaft ..." (Max Brod, Nachwort zu "Amerika").

(8 pp;. 17x22cm) We have given these documents to Michael Holland, researcher and professor of French literature at St Hugh's College, Oxford, author of several works on Maurice Blanchot Before that say: Essays on Blanchot appeared in 2015 at Hermann. His detailed analysis is forthcoming in Cahiers Maurice Blanchot under the direction of Danielle Cohen-Levinas. We use excerpts from this study to present these previously unknown and unpublished documents.The discretion of Blanchot on his youth and the almost total lack of biographical material forced the few biographers Blanchot many assumptions about the path of the most secret writer of the twentieth century.The school report and other documents in this set and can trace the tuition Blanchot.Holland notes that there "until 1921 Blanchot continued his studies at home, under the guidance of his father, Isidore, literature teacher who offered private lessons to children from wealthier families. [...] The small collection of "Satisfaction Testimonials" and "Honor Citations" signed "Professor / I. Blanchot" are precious and touching record of these years. »Blanchot then made "studies for three years at the College of Chalon-sur-Saône Boys [...] [and] has passed its trough in 1924 and not in 1922 [...] He chose the training provided by Section B (live Latin-Languages) [...] He chose to complete his studies in philosophy class.A school report covering the three years of schooling in Chalon has a very detailed picture of the young student. After a year in which the Second Progress "Good or Very Good student" to "excellent student" can be clearly observed in some subjects [...] Only downside to this brilliant picture: the disease. [...] It is noted that it is the first course that seem to have been affected by this episode. »in the light of these, Michael Holland puts next "Blanchot's career and that of Jean-Paul Sartre, Henri IV to Louis-le-Grand finally came to Ulm Street ENS 1924. Even golf champion, same rewards and same honors, each is an outstanding student. And it is found in Imagination Sartre published in 1936 but began during its preparation Psychology Certificate 1927, the same interest in the ideas of Ribot who sprinkles his essays. [...]Four essays psychology, a philosophy and literature offer valuable insight into what the young Blanchot was able during the year that he was preparing his bachelor's degree. By his comments on the sidelines of essays from Blanchot his philosophy teacher, Mr. Bochot shows that he knew he was dealing with an exceptional mind, sometimes unruly but capable of analysis and critical acute. »Michael Holland then provides a detailed analysis of the various work of Blanchot, including correlated with the writings of Ribot, highlighting the knowledge and early critical young Blanchot. It also notes in these early works the premises of a thought that soon will mark the literary critic of the twentieth century.Here are some excerpts of his work, giving an overview of the quality and interest of the student dissertations Blanchot:"This essay follows closely the argument of the article" The emotional logic "of Th. Ribot published in the Philosophical Magazine in 1904.""The more daring is the claim that the affective similarity is also the basis of some associations of states of consciousness. The "emotional tone" brought by the joy, sadness becomes a center of attention grouping of states of consciousness without rational relationship between them, a pivot around which agitate unexpected groupings. It is the artist who is the first recipient of this analogy sensations that brings such a man born blind to explain the Scarlet comparing it to the sound of a trumpet (eg which originated in Locke and is regularly quoted in the nineteenth century). Rejecting embryological and anatomical explanations for these associations Blanchot says that "the psychological explanation seems the only good", adding: "This way to feel a bit special is not, however, the privilege of a few eccentric or imbalanced, not to mention the fantastic designs or even surprising sentiments expressed some symbolist and decadent, we find even among the people, and perhaps especially among the people, that singular sensibility others cultivate and refine, as a precious rarity " . »"Having concluded that in many cases the cause of our associations is the emotional disposition and not elsewhere, Blanchot goes further: the emotional tone that accompanies associated performances can also strengthen their relationship. Here Blanchot brings in its reasoning author close but different from both Th Ribot. American philosopher William James. ""From here, the idea of" emotional affinity "that connects what comes to mind our current arrangements inspired Blanchot examples more personal (" When we are sad ... The happy man today ... tomorrow ... my enthusiasm bankruptcy of my happiness ") .."Blanchot disputes the Ribot drawing on his personal experience considered equal to everyone. »"Here, as in essays devoted to Th. Ribot there is dissatisfaction Blanchot before the established dualisms, attention to identify a third position that complicates relations. Here it is with the work of Edmond Goblot (1858-1935) Blanchot continued his analysis. »"When studying in La Fontaine's fable, Blanchot says," we must be placed at two points of view. " "Why is this option?" meets his teacher. In literature as philosophy, we can see, the same concern to go beyond simple outlook characterizes the approach of the young student. »"It is in relation to that company as" the old storyteller gauloiseries has remained himself. " From there to suggest that such an example has inspired the novelist Blanchot who will work a few years later, there is only one step. But to understand the young nationalist who will soon (if not already) forge commitments we continue to blame him, it should be noted that what makes La Fontaine really a French poet, is to be "The only perhaps in his time who saw through our forests poor woodcutter all covered with branches," the only one to have found a way under "cold and shiny shell of the words" to trouble the heart by show. In short - and this is evident in all the essays of this period - the concern that animates the young Blanchot, and inspire her pronouncements he will regret later, is deeply human. His teacher asks: "Why do you sacrifice lyricism?". This is because now, for Blanchot, writing is out of the prescribed frameworks, whether moral or aesthetic, and get in front of the crisis, in the 1920s, began to make man the The challenge of complex and formidable powers. »More than relics of his childhood, these documents are a valuable record of the education and training of one of the best minds of our time.

        A Book for Kids.

      Sydney: Angus and Robertson, 1921. Quarto, colour frontispiece and title, numerous illustrations in the text; original decorated boards, cloth spine. Scarce first edition: the only children's book from the pen of iconic poet and Aussie larrikin C. J. Dennis.This is an interesting association copy inscribed by the publisher George Robertson to Captain Arthur W. Jose. Loosely tipped in is a doggerel note from "P.R." (possibly the author P.R. Stephensen) thanking the owner for loaning the book, and lamenting the difficulty of earning a quid by writing rhymes for children.A Book for Kids comprises playful verse and rhyme with two short stories, respectively titled 'The Little Red House' and 'The Boy Who Rode into the Sunset'. It is a fresh and sometimes eccentric production, enhanced by the author's simple yet confident line drawings. The striking cover illustration was also created by Dennis.'C.J. Dennis' one lasting contribution to children's literature was A Book for Kids, which, with its entertaining prose, rollicking verse and the author's own naïve but charming drawings, had enjoyed constant popularity ever since its first appearance in 1921' (McVitty, Authors and Illustrators of Australian Children's Books p. 57).The two short stories offer an innovative contrast to the literary conventions of the time, and appeal directly to the imagination of younger readers. Of 'The Boy Who Rode into the Sunset' Saxby writes 'Dennis avoids the error of trying to moralize or teach a lesson from nature, and captures the imaginative feeling of a child caught up in the clouds and absorbed into the sunset'. Hinges repaired; some wear to boards, including scuffing at edges of front board, a few marks, but in good condition for this title.

        Le côté de Guermantes II. Sodome et Gomorrhe I

      First edition on ordinary paper, false mention of the sixth edition.Handsome autograph inscription from Marcel Proust to André Salmon.Covers uniformly browned, covers and upper corner of leaf with inscription skillfully reinforced.In his "Souvenirs sans fin [Memories without end]," Salmon recalls the circumstances of this unlikely 'meeting' between two distant literary worlds, the Bohemian world of the Montparnasse crowd and the aristocratic salons that Proust frequented: "I did not actually know Proust, but we corresponded. It was he who made the approach, in the most sublime and unexpected way. I had just given a reading of a realist fable at the Nouvelle Revue Française (in March 1920), called "Le Mannequin d'acajou [The Mahogany Mannequin]," something I never suspected could interest that observer, that fierce admirer - yes, subjugated and mistrustful - of the Duchess of Guermantes, Oriano - a hateful creature worthy of public exposure...Marcel Proust wrote to me straight after the reading of Le Mannequin d'acajou. He also sent me some of his books, with handsome inscriptions. I replied, of course, to Marcel Proust, but I never went to see him. Corresponding with him was important to me, but I could not resolve myself to go and visit him at his bedside... above all, to go and sit among so many others whose delights would never be my own. Obviously, there was no question of meeting Marcel Proust at midnight in the Ritz, where the staff did not know me. Was I wrong? In any case, Marcel Proust bore me no ill-will. He must have understood, guessed, my motives. Not only did he keep writing to me, but he also wrote to others with the intention of helping me."In fact, after the publication of this short story, Proust put forward Salmon's name along with Rivière's for the two Blumenthal scholarships. Unfortunately, Salmon had already passed the upper age limit and it was André Thérive who got the second scholarship. André Salmon would not find out about this support until 1951, when he read Proust's unpublished letters to Edmond Jaloux in the Revue de Paris: "Let me pick out what he was kind enough to write on my account, even in the midst of a burning fever...: 'Your conclusion thus seems to be Salmon, which by the way is the same one I came to with Gide. I find that the reasoning they applied (the prize would allow him to stop doing journalism) is very misguided. Talent is reason enough in itself...'" (cf. A. Salmon, Souvenirs sans fin, pp. 807-809). This work is undoubtedly the second and final work inscribed by Proust to André Salmon, after the first volume of The Guermantes Way, published the previous year.This precious Proustian relic is presented in a black morocco box by Goy & Vilaine, date at foot of spine, lined with khaki sheep.  Nrf Paris 1921 14x19,5cm broché

        Intérieurs modernes par MAM (Croquis, La Gazette du Bon ton, 1921 n°1) - Installation moderne d'un jeune ménage, composition par Lucie Renaudot, exécution de P.A. Dumas (Publicité, La Gazette du Bon ton, 1921 n°2) -

      Set of eight original prints in color, drawn on laid paper, signed lower right and left boards. The boards are introduced by a text signed Jean Cocteau and represent costumes for Shakespeare (two Bergeres Paulina or Time).Original prints made ??for the illustration of The Gazette fashionable, one of the finest and most influential twentieth century fashion magazines, celebrating the talent of creators and artists French burgeoning art deco.Famous fashion magazine founded in 1912 by Lucien Vogel, The Gazette fashionable appeared until 1925 with an interruption during the War of 1915 to 1920, due to mobilization of its editor. She is 69 Deliveries from just 2000 copies and is illustrated including 573 color plates and 148 sketches depicting models of fashion designers. Upon publication, these luxury publications "are for bibliophiles and worldly aesthetes" (Françoise Tétart-Vittu "good Gazette of tone" in the fashion dictionary, 2016). Printed on fine laid paper, they use a typeface created specifically for the magazine by Georges Peignot, the Cochin character, taken in 1946 by Christian Dior. The prints are made with the technique of metal stencil, enhanced color and some outlined in gold or palladium.The adventure began in 1912 when Lucien Vogel, man of the world and fashion - it has already participated in Femina magazine - decided to found with his wife Cosette de Brunhoff (John's sister, the father of Babar) Gazette good tone in which the subtitle is then "Art, fashions and frivolities." Georges Charensol quotes the editor: "In 1910, he observed, there was no truly artistic fashion magazine and representative of the spirit of his time. So I thought of making a glossy magazine with truly modern artists [...] I was certain of success because for any fashion country can compete with France. "(" A great art editor. Lucien Vogel "in literary News, No. 133, May 1925). The success of the magazine is immediate, not only in France but also the US and South America.Originally, Vogel therefore brings together a group of seven artists: André-Édouard Marty and Pierre Brissaud, followed by Georges Lepape and Dammicourt; and finally his friends from the School of Fine Arts as are George Barbier, Bernard Boutet de Monvel or Charles Martin. Other talents come quickly reach the equipped Guy Arnoux, Léon Bakst, Benito, Boutet de Monvel, Umberto Brunelleschi, Chas Laborde, Jean-Gabriel Domergue, Raoul Dufy, Edward Halouze Alexander Iacovleff, Jean Emile Laboureur Charles Loupot, Charles Martin, Maggie Salcedo. These artists, mostly unknown when Lucien Vogel appealed to them, will eventually become iconic figures and artistic sought. These are the same illustrators who make the drawings advertisements Gazette.The boards highlight the dresses and sublime seven artists of the time: Lanvin, Doeuillet, Paquin, Poiret, Worth, Vionnet and Doucet. The designers provide for each number of exclusive models. Nevertheless, some of Illustrations contained no real model, but only the idea that the illustrator is done in the fashion of the day.Gazette fashionable is a milestone in the history of fashion. Combining the aesthetic requirement and plastic unit, it brings together for the first time the great talents of the world of arts, literature and fashion and imposed by this alchemy, a new image of women, slender, independent and bold, also driven by the new generation of designers Coco Chanel, Jean Patou, Rochas Marcel ...Recovery in 1920 by Condé Montrose Nast, Gazette fashionable modeled for the new composition and the aesthetic choices of the "little dying newspaper" that Nast had bought a few years ago: the Vogue magazine.

        Bonjour Cinema

      Paris: Editions de la Sirene, 1921. First edition. 12mo, unpaginated. Printed wraps. The first edition of this work of film criticism by the filmmaker and critic best remembered today for his film The Fall of the House of Usher. While the importance of the text is widely acknowledged in the history of film criticism, the graphic design of the book by Claude Delbanne - an art deco fantasia on film themes which occasionally verges into concrete poetry - makes it one of the most visually striking film books ever published. Very good or better with a 1/2" closed tear to paper covering the head of spine, which doesn't affect the soundness of the binding.

        Monday or Tuesday

      London: The Hogarth Press 1921 - First edition, one of 1,000 copies. White paper boards with woodcut by Vanessa Bell and brown cloth spine. With 4 woodcuts by Bell. This copy being that of Roger Senhouse, bearing his ownership signature, bookplate, and a small piece of paper with notes in his hand regarding the printing of Monday or Tuesday. About near fine, with light rubbing to boards, offsetting to endpapers and a few spots of foxing. Roger Senhouse was a publisher at Secker and Warburg and member of the Bloomsbury Group. Senhouse noted in pencil on front free endpaper: 1000 copies / "The Prompt Press". Indeed, the Woolfs had this work printed by F. T. McDermott of the Prompt Press in Richmond. Kirkpatrick notes that McDermott gave Leonard printing advice during the infancy of the Hogarth Press. However, notes in Senhouse’s hand on a small piece of paper laid in to this copy tell Leonard’s story from a different angle. An attractive copy with a fantastic Bloomsbury Group association, and humorous insight into the early days of the Hogarth Press. Kirkpatrick A5a. Woolmer 17. Monday or Tuesday is a collection of eight of Woolf's short stories. In addition to the title story "Monday or Tuesday," this volume contains "A Haunted House," "A Society," "The String Quartet," "Blue & Green," and three previously published stories. Monday or Tuesday marked an experimental departure from the realism that hallmarked Woolf's earlier texts Night and Day and The Voyage Out. Similarly, Vanessa Bell's striking black and white woodcut engravings that illustrate this volume are stylistically different than her usually colorful paintings. Although she wrote short stories and sketches throughout her writing career, this is the only collection to be published during Woolf's lifetime. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      London: Constable & Company,, 1921. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles gilt to spine and front. With the dust jacket. An extraordinary copy, in fine fresh condition, uncut, and the dust jacket only a little toned at spine and around edges, bearing a small few fleck marks, and a few tiny tears and chips along corners and edges. First edition, first impression, of the author's first book, an uncut copy with an exceptional example of the rare dust jacket. Harold Nicolson (1886-1968) was a diplomat and Bloomsbury author, who had married Vita Sackville-West in 1913 (more an "open" than a "lavender" marriage, since although both Vita and Harold continued to have homosexual relationships with numerous different people throughout their lives, they were also devoted to one another and had two sons). He had served in the foreign office during the First World War (being selected to hand the Germans Britain's declaration of war in 1914), and would go on to have a career in the foreign service and in politics. He was encouraged to write by his wife and this biography of the French poet Paul Verlaine is his first publication - the first of several studies of literary figures including Tennyson, Byron, Swinburne and Sainte-Beuve, as well as a political novel Public Faces (1932). Nicolson's Verlaine is rare in the dust jacket - we have never seen another, and can trace none at auction - this copy is almost untouched, and uncut.

He formed a trio with his brothers, a pianist and a cellist of ability, but it was as the partner of Cortot and Casals in a famous trio, chiefly active from 1930 to 1935, that he is remembered as an ensemble player... Thibaud never retired; he appeared in London when he was over 70 and gave his last concert at Biarritz ten days before he was killed in an air crash on his way to a concert tour in the East Asia."

        The Spoil Bank Association Limited Cheque Book and Articles of Association.

      (Ditchling: St. Dominic's Press, 1921). Small oblong quarto. 50ff., consisting of printed checks bearing a wood-engraving titled "S. Joseph and S. Dominica in Vesica" by David Jones. The Spoil Bank Association was established at Ditchling in order to hold the land and manage the money of the Guild of S. Joseph & S. Dominic in the early days of the community at Ditchling. The name is derived from a strip mining term, which refers to the pile of refuse created by the excavation of earth materials on a mining site, undoubtedly intentional, given the anti-capitalist views of Gill and Pepler. While documents referencing the Spoil Bank Association have occasionally surfaced, only one endorsed check is recorded, and this is held at Notre Dame. Taylor & Sewell note that Barclay's Bank "refused to cash or negotiate these cheques." It is believed that no more than 100 checks were printed, making this complete and unused checkbook, which contains check numbers B1 - B50, of the utmost rarity. The book retains its plain gray wrappers, and apart from a mild crease down the center, it is about fine. Together with the Memorandum and Articles of Association for the Spoil Bank Association, registered on November 9, 1921. Broadside, folded in eighths. In addition to laying out the founding guidelines of the Association, this document lists the initial subscribers and appoitns Eric Gill, Herbert Joseph Cribb, and Hilary Pepler the first Directors. Fine. (Cleverdon 81; Taylor & Sewell A95).

Together with: Copyright forms of the Société des Auteurs, Compositeur et Editeurs de Musique (SACEM; French authors' rights society) and cover letter from the Symphony Society of New York to J. T. Roach of the publisher Hinds, Hayden & Eldredge, New York. 1 page. August 2, 1923. On letterhead, typed and signed by the society's manager, George Engles. Engles asks Roach to have the papers signed by the poets. Together with: Two typed letters from Walter Damrosch's office to [J.T.] Roach. Oblong octavo. On stationery with Damrosch's letterhead and signed, "Lillian Day[?]." The first, dated January 3, 1921, is the cover letter to a "corrected copy of M. Widor's song Le Chene du souvenir" (the song is not present). The second, dated November 14, 1921, inquires about royalties Damrosch sent to Camille Saint-Saëns and Ralph Vaughan Williams; the writer wants to adjust Damrosch's French bank account; bank receipt (Morgan, Harjes & Co, Paris), dated July 8, 1921, is attached. Unrecorded and presumably unpublished. The texts are by Henry Rutherford Elliot (1849-1906), a journalist in New York, and Edwin Markham (1852-1940), an American poet. "Laugh it off!" is a humorous song in a popular style; The Manger Song of Mary is a lullaby in a more sophisticated style. The correspondence suggests that both of Vidal's songs were slated for publication by Hinds, Hayden & Eldredge in 1923; the scribal copies were most likely intended as engraver's copies.
