This lot comes from the collection of Charles Rand Penney of Lockport, New York, considered one of the great American collectors of the Twentieth Century. Born in Buffalo, New York, in 1923, Penney acquired his BA from Yale University in 1965, a law degree from the University of Virginia in 1951, and in 1995 he was honored with a Doctorate of Fine Arts from the State University of New York for his life-long support for the arts. Dr. Penney received many other awards for his continuing contributions in this field.

Dr. Penney began collecting art by Western New Yorkers in the mid-30's, eventually collecting more than 100,000 objects that he kept and researched in his own home. Dr. Penney loaned his artwork extensively throughout Western New York and the rest of the world. In the early 1990s, he donated his collection of Western New York art to the Burchfield Art Center at Buffalo State College. As a result, the center was renamed the Burchfield-Penney Art Center to memorialize his generous and landmark donation.

Title: The Little Sister
Author: Raymond Chandler - Raymond Thornton Chandler was an American novelist and screenwriter.

In 1932, at age forty-five, Raymond Chandler decided to become a detective fiction writer after losing his job as an oil company executive during the Depression. His first short story, "Blackmailers Don't Shoot," was published in 1933 in Black Mask, a popular pulp magazine. His first novel, "The Big Sleep," was published in 1939. In addition to his short stories, Chandler published just seven novels during his lifetime. In the year before he died, he was elected president of the Mystery Writers of America. He died on March 26, 1959, in La Jolla, California.

Chandler had an immense stylistic influence on American hard-boiled detective fiction, and is considered by many to be a founder, along with Dashiell Hammett, James M. Cain and other Black Mask writers, of the hard-boiled school of detective fiction, especially in the style of the writing and the attitudes characteristic of the genre. His fictional detective (protagonist), Philip Marlowe, along with Hammett's Sam Spade, is considered by some to be synonymous with "private detective," both having been played on screen by Humphrey Bogart, whom many considered to be the quintessential Marlowe.

Some of Chandler's novels are considered to be important literary works, and three are often considered to be masterpieces: "Farewell, My Lovely" (1940), "The Little Sister" (1949), and "The Long Goodbye" (1953). "The Long Goodbye" is praised within an anthology of American crime stories as "arguably the first book since Hammett's "The Glass Key," published more than twenty years earlier, to qualify as a serious and significant mainstream novel that just happened to possess elements of mystery".

Title: A Time To Heal: The Autobiography of Gerald R. Ford
Author: Gerald R. Ford - Gerald Rudolph "Jerry" Ford, Jr. (born Leslie Lynch King, Jr.) was the 38th President of the United States, serving from 1974 to 1977, and the 40th Vice President of the United States serving from 1973 to 1974. As the first person appointed to the vice-presidency under the terms of the 25th Amendment (after Spiro Agnew had resigned), when he became President upon Richard Nixon's resignation on August 9, 1974, he became the only President of the United States who was never elected President nor Vice-President by the Electoral College. Before ascending to the vice-presidency, Ford served nearly 25 years as the Representative from Michigan's 5th congressional district, eight of them as the Republican Minority Leader.

As President, Ford signed the Helsinki Accords, marking a move toward détente in the Cold War. With the conquest of South Vietnam by North Vietnam nine months into his presidency, U.S. involvement in Vietnam essentially ended. Domestically, Ford presided over arguably the weakest economy since the Great Depression, with growing inflation and a recession during his tenure. One of his more controversial acts was to grant a presidential pardon to President Richard Nixon for his role in the Watergate scandal. During Ford's incumbency, foreign policy was characterized in procedural terms by the increased role Congress began to play, and by the corresponding curb on the powers of the President. In 1976, Ford narrowly defeated Ronald Reagan for the Republican nomination, but lost the presidential election to Democrat Jimmy Carter.
