This Kliegl Brothers Stage & Studio Spotlight has glass with an approximate diameter of 7.5". The glass remains intact and clear. This is one of two Kliegl Spotlights of this size in today's auction, with seven larger spotlights, as well. These spotlights are one of several pieces of film equipment used by a theater and taken out of use as modern equipment became available. It is presumably in working condition.

The Kliegl Brothers, John H. Kliegl and Anton Tiberius Kliegl, were considered one of the most innovative inventors of stage lighting equipment in the 20th century. They were responsible for creating a type of carbon arc lamp now known as a Klieg light, which is still highly used today in both theatrical and cinematic productions. This device is especially useful for film productions, since the high intensity of light creates a daylight effect during the night. (courtesy of ehow.com and kieglbros.com)

This collection of vintage, professional projection and theater equipment has been carefully stored since being removed from use.

Details/Condition: This signed original piece is an oil on canvas still life by renowned artist William Merritt Chase. The piece features dark grapes on the vine, with fine detail to the leaves, vine and wooden background.

William Merritt Chase (November 1, 1849 - October 25, 1916) was an American painter known as an exponent of Impressionism and as a teacher. He was born in Williamsburg (now Nineveh), Indiana, to the family of a local merchant. Chase's father moved the family to Indianapolis in 1861 and employed his son as a salesman in the family business. Chase showed an early interest in art, and studied under local, self-taught artists Barton S. Hays and Jacob Cox. After a brief stint in the Navy, Chase's teachers urged him to travel to New York to further his artistic training. He arrived in New York in 1869, met and studied with Joseph Oriel Eaton for a short time, then enrolled in the National Academy of Design under Lemuel Wilmarth, a student of the famous French artist Jean-Leon Gerome. He later established the Chase School, which later would become Parsons The New School for Design. (courtesy of william-merritt-chase.org)

Title: Catch-22
Author: Joseph Heller
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Printing Year: 1961

Condition/Details: Bound in blue cloth with white lettering on the spine, this vintage work is a rare signed copy of Heller's influential novel about American servicemen during World War II. This volume is humorously inscribed to the previous owner, whose beach house Heller rented in the summer of 1961, where he apparently did a good deal of the writing of this novel. The inscription reads "To Joel ... Who has promised to buy one copy, if I give him one. I hope this inscription helps him remember. Joe Heller, May 5, 1962".

Joseph Heller (May 1, 1923 – December 12, 1999) was an American satirical novelist, short story writer and playwright. Catch-22 was first published in 1961. The novel, a satirical, historical work, was set during the later stages of World War II from 1943 onwards. It is frequently cited as one of the great literary works of the twentieth century. It has a distinctive non-chronological style where events are described from different characters' points of view and out of sequence so that the time line develops along with the plot. The title of the work entered the English lexicon to refer to absurd, no-win choices, particularly in situations in which the desired outcome of the choice is an impossibility, and regardless of choice, the same negative outcome is a certainty. Heller is widely regarded as one of the best post-World War II satirists. Although he is remembered primarily for Catch-22, his other works center on the lives of various members of the middle class and remain exemplars of modern satire.

The volume shows some external age/wear, and is solidly bound with clean pages. The book measures approximately 6" x 8.5". Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $4.50

Title: The Fight: An Essay
Author: William Hazlitt
Publisher: The Elm Tree Press
Printing Year: 1929 limited edition

Condition/Details: Bound blue paper boards with paper spine label, this antique volume is a scarce essay by William Hazlitt. This volume is one of 1,000 limited editions printed for and signed by Marjorie Barlow, number 261.

William Hazlitt (10 April 1778 – 18 September 1830) was an English writer, remembered for his humanistic essays and literary criticism, and as a grammarian and philosopher. He is now considered one of the great critics and essayists of the English language, placed in the company of Samuel Johnson and George Orwell, but his work is currently little-read and mostly out of print. During his lifetime he befriended many people who are now part of the 19th-century literary canon, including Charles and Mary Lamb, Stendhal, Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth.

Hazlitt's fascination with the extremes of human capability in any field led to his writing "The Fight" (published in the February 1822 New Monthly Magazine). This essay never appeared anywhere else in the author's lifetime. A direct, personal account of a prize fight, it was controversial in its time as depicting too "low" a subject. Written at a dismal time in his life—Hazlitt's divorce was pending, and he was far from sure of being able to marry the woman he loved—the article shows scarcely a trace of his agony. Not quite like any other essay by Hazlitt, it proved to be one of his most popular and was frequently reprinted after his death. (courtesy of Wikipedia)

The volume shows light external age/wear, with some sunning to the spine, and is solidly bound with clean pages. A bookstore's stamp is inside of the rear board. The book measures approximately 5.5" x 7.75" and contains 30 pages. Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $4.50

This lot features a Super Simplex projector, manufactured by International Projector Corporation. The projector includes the original glass label, and the lens focusing, frame and shutter knobs.

The first Simplex projector was designed by Edwin S. Porter, Francis B. Cannock and Mike Berkowitz in New York City, 1908. The next year, Precision Machine Company was founded to manufacture the Simplex, with the first models appearing this year. Over the years, Simplex's popularity increased, and in 1925 International Projector Company was founded, merging Precision Machine Company, Nicholas Power Company and the Acme Motion Picture Projector Company. The company continued to grow with the film industry, operating under several other names, most recently as part of Strong International. (courtesy of www.film-tech.com)
