Gilbert Penrose JAMES (1865-1941) was one of the earliest and most proli!c of the artists to take up the challenge of providing illustrations for FitzGerald’s verses and his work was reprinted many times in dierent forms during the twentieth century. "e photogravure edition gives us some measure of James’s commercial success at this time, for it ran to several editions involving at least 18,000 copies by 1912. Born in West Derby, Liverpool, he worked as a clerk in a corn merchant's oce, and became a close friend of the artist Sidney H. Sime, who is best known today for his extraordinary fantasy illustrations. Whether or not the two things are connected is unclear, but James did turn from oce work to art.

The Story of the Malakand Field Force. Lord Curzon’s copy of Churchill’s first published book, signed by Curzon and inscribed and dated by Churchill in India on 13 March 1899 during Curzon’s first months as Viceroy of India Longmans, Green, & Co., London, 1899
This is a signed copy of Winston S. Churchill’s first published book, rendered remarkably compelling by association, time, place, and the nature of the signature itself. This first printing of the second, Silver Library edition of The Story of the Malakand Field Force belonged to the last Victorian Viceroy of India, Lord George Nathaniel Curzon, bears Curzon’s signature, and was signed and dated by Winston S. Churchill, in India, on 13 March 1899.
The inscription and signature
Curzon’s characteristically bold and simple signature “Curzon” is in blue on the front free endpaper recto. Churchill signed and dated the upper half title in two lines in black “Winston Spencer Churchill | March. 13. 1899”. The use of the full, formal “Spencer” rather than simply “S.” is quite unusual, typically found only in Churchill’s earliest signatures and scarce even among these. It seems plausible to speculate that the formality reflected the moment, the young cavalry subaltern being at the time the guest of the newly appointed Viceroy and evidently much impressed by his host.
Fortunately, we know much about the time and circumstances that prompted this signed presentation copy. In December 1898, Lord Curzon, not yet 40, left England to assume his duties as the newly-appointed Viceroy of India. That same December, 24-yearold Winston Churchill, newly returned to England from the battlefield at Omdurman in the Sudan, also left for India. Churchill’s purpose - less exalted than that of Curzon – was to take part in the Inter-Regimental Polo Tournament.
Their two arcs would converge a few months later in Calcutta, when the newly-minted Viceroy of India hosted the itinerant war correspondent, cavalry officer, budding author, and aspiring politician. Churchill’s Official Biography informs us that “On his way back from the Inter-Regimental Polo Tournament, Churchill stayed for a week with the Viceroy of Calcutta.” This stay occurred in early March 1899. (R. Churchill, Vol. I, p.436)
Two years earlier, in a 25 February 1897 letter to his mother, Churchill had cited – with youthful vehemence and certainty – his detestation of Curzon, whom he called “blown with conceit – insolent from undeserved success – the typification of the superior Oxford prig.” Worth noting, all but the “Oxford” epithet might have been applied to Churchill by others.
During his stay with Curzon and his wife in India, Churchill’s opinion clearly changed and “All of his previous hostility evaporated under the impact of the Curzon charm”. (R. Churchill, Vol. I, p.436) Now fondly impressed, Churchill wrote to his mother from Calcutta on 2 March 1899: “I have found him very delightful to talk to. His manners are wonderful. All the aggressiveness wh irritated me at home is gone… I fear he works too hard – nearly eleven hours every single day…” To his grandmother Churchill wrote on 26 March “I spent a pleasant week at Calcutta & had several long and delightful talks with Lord Curzon. I understand the success he has obtained. He is a remarkable man…”
Indications are that the favorable impression was mutual. It also appears that The Story of the Malakand Field Force had been well received. Lady Curzon wrote to Churchill’s mother on 14 March 1899 “People in India have an immense opinion of Winston & his book.” (R. Churchill, Vol. I, p.436)

Koide, Jo "Joseph"
Notes: "An autobiography of an Issei leftist, a native of Tokyo and a graduate of Aoyama Gakuin. The first volume covers the period prior to World War II and includes his years in the Soviet Union; the second treats his wartime internment experience and his service to the American government from 1944." —A Buried Past, 808.
Koide (1902–ca. 1976) trained at the Lenin International School in Moscow in the 1930s, yet in spite of his strong Communist ties, he joined the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) during the Second World War. He is profiled in Asian American Spies: How Asian Americans Helped Win the Allied Victory by Brian Masaru Hayashi (Oxford University Press, 2021). According to Hideo Hoshide, another Japanese American who worked for the OSS, Koide (a pseudonym) was the leader of the Japanese section of the OSS during the Second World War. See Densho Digital Archive.
A unique perspective on the Japanese American experience. Your cataloguer could not determine what happened to Koide after these memoirs were published.
Edition + Condition: First editions of both volumes. Near fine copies of both volumes in very good slipcases. Volume two has the original obi (bellyband).
Publication: Tokyo: Yushindo, 1967–1970.

Venlo, Netherlands: Van Der Grinten N.V., . 300 by 210mm (11¾ by 8¼ inches). Four advertising brochures, each 4 pp. (1 folded piece of cardboard).
1) Oce 622S and 648S;
2) Oce 621 Plan Printer;
3) Oce 604 and 607;
4) Oce 612.
In English. Each brochure depicts a “Bond-girl” in a white unitard, high black boots and blue hair posing prominently in front of the newest ammonia printer.
Very good with light wear.
Classic “Mad-Men” sexist advertising to sell printers and copiers.
Oce printers comprise an important part of computing and printing history. The company started in 1877 experimenting with various dyes. That knowledge was then applied to blueprint technology as early as 1920. During the 1960’s and 1970’s the company produced massive copying and printing machines. The machines subject of all these advertising brochures are based on an ammonia combination printing process and were sold by the company between 1973 and 1975. In 2009 Canon Production Printing took over the company.
In addition to the “sex sells” angle, there is some fairly unique advertising copy. For example for the Oce 604 & 607:
“Democratic dictators of drawing office efficiency.
The Oce 604 or 607 Plan Printer, like some politicians, starts off as a democrat and ends up a benevolent dictator. You don’t have to elect to use it - there are plenty of other plan printers - but once you do - the democrat become a dictator!”
Clearly playing off a James Bond theme, the advert for the Oce 612 states:
“A confident conspirator... to conquer your copying problems.
At the mention of the word ‘conspirator’ most of us get a mental picture of silent men with black beards, secret codes, time bombs in attaché cases, revenge and revolution.
But there are more acceptable conspirators... If it’s a copying problem in the drawing office more and more managements are conquering these problems by introducing one of those confident conspirators, the Oce 612 Plan Printer, into their conspirational circle.”
A nice addition for those interested in the history of computing and printers or the history of advertising.

- Catalogue 236: Science, Medicine, Natural History, Early Western Printing, and Bibliography
New York: The Viking Press, (1965). Early printing of Ezra Jack Keats’s Caldecott-winning picture book, warmly inscribed to fellow artist Sister Corita Kent, then head of the art department at Immaculate Heart College. The joyful story of a city boy’s snow day, The Snowy Day was one of the first American children’s books to center the experience of a Black child without foregrounding race or racism: “After breakfast he called to his friend from across the hall, and they went out together into the deep, deep snow.”
The activist nun known as “Sister Mary Corita” became widely known in the 1960s for her vibrant pop serigraphs on social justice themes, and for the progressive art department she chaired, which attracted guest instructors like John Cage, Charles Eames, and Buckminster Fuller. Forced to leave her position at Immaculate Heart in 1968, Kent moved to Boston, where she continued to create art, including the 1971 “Rainbow Swash” painted on a Boston gas tank (still the largest copyrighted piece of art in the world), and the 1985 LOVE stamp for the United States Postal Service.
This is the sixth printing of The Snowy Day, issued in May 1965, three years after the first printing. A remarkable association copy, bringing together two groundbreaking American graphic artists. Single volume, measuring 8 x 9 inches: 32. Original pale blue pictorial cloth printed in red and white, snowflake-printed endpapers, original unclipped color pictorial dust jacket priced at $3.00, Caldecott medal affixed to front panel. Color illustrations throughout text. Ink presentation inscription on dedication page: “For Sister Mary Corita -- / Best wishes / Ezra Jack Keats.” Shelf label of Immaculate Heart College Art Department affixed to jacket spine. Lightest edgewear, tiny circular hole to front jacket panel.

Universal City, CA: Universal Studios, 1973. Vintage original Revised Second draft lm script, 11 x 8 1⁄2" (28 x 21 cm.), pictorial wrappers, brad bound, mimeograph, , 121 pp., minor creasing and slight stains to wrappers, near fine in very good+ wrappers.
A very early draft of the script for Jaws, two years prior to its release in 1975, with an unusual artwork design on the front cover which was not present on subsequent scripts for this classic film. Jaws was the second feature lm directed by the 27-year-old Stephen Spielberg and became one of the highest grossing movies ever made, the prototype of the summer blockbuster, outgrossing even The Godfather.
The movie went through a complicated pre-production process involving several directors prior to Spielberg, and numerous screenwriters, most of whom were uncredited. This is the Second Draft screenplay by Peter Benchley based on his novel, an eventual bestseller, which producers Zanuck and Brown had urchased the rights to some months prior to its publication. Although Benchley’s Second Draft screenplay
has the same fundamental structure as the completed lm, most of the same incidents, and the same principal characters, it was substantially revised before reaching the screen. The character who was most altered between the Second Draft screenplay and Spielberg’s completed lm was Hooper, the young shark expert. In Benchley’s screenplay, he is described as “handsome but disheveled”. Whereas the Hooper in Benchley’s screenplay was a daredevil type, someone who climbed mountains and chased lions before he became interested in sharks, the Hooper in Spielberg’s movie, as played by Richard Dreyfuss, is more of a science nerd, an ichthyologist fascinated by fish. Where the Hooper in Benchley’s screenplay is killed before the end of the story, the Hooper in Spielberg’s movie makes it out alive.
Finally, where in both Benchley’s screenplay and the film Brody is the one who ends up killing the shark, the way he kills it was changed. In the screenplay, Brody kills it with a harpoon through the creature’s eye; in the film, more ingeniously, he kills it by shooting and exploding a canister of compressed air lodged in the shark’s mouth.
