The following group of volumes were produced by the Roycrofters, a renowned reformist community of craft workers and artists which formed part of the Arts and Crafts movement in the USA. Elbert Hubbard founded the community in 1895 in the village of East Aurora, Erie County, New York, near Buffalo. The work and philosophy of the group, often referred to as the Roycroft movement, had a strong influence on the development of American architecture and design in the early 20th century. Elbert Green Hubbard (June 19, 1856 – May 7, 1915) was an eccentric American writer, publisher, artist, and philosopher. He was an influential exponent of the Arts and Crafts movement who produced not only fine books but furniture in this aesthetic, and was a prolific writer himself; he is perhaps most famous for his essay "A Message to Garcia."

This lot also includes a signed edition of Williams' The Complete Collected Poems, 1906-1938, bound in blue cloth with gilt embossing and in the original mylar dust jacket, and published by New Directions in 1938.

William Carlos Williams (September 17, 1883 – March 4, 1963) was an American poet closely associated with modernism and Imagism. He was also a pediatrician and general practitioner of medicine. Williams "worked harder at being a writer than he did at being a physician"; but during his long lifetime, Williams excelled at both. His work consists of short stories, poems, plays, novels, critical essays, an autobiography, translations and correspondence. He wrote at night and spent weekends in New York City with friends - writers and artists like the avant-garde painters Marcel Duchamp and Francis Picabia and the poets Wallace Stevens and Marianne Moore. He became involved in the Imagist movement but soon he began to develop opinions that differed from those of his poetic peers, Ezra Pound and T. S. Eliot. Later in his life, Williams toured the United States giving poetry readings and lectures. (courtesy of Wikipedia)

Condition/Details: Bound in light blue cloth with bright gilt embossing, this volume is a scarce, limited edition of Antoine de Saint Exupery's memoir, describing several episodes from his years flying treacherous mail routes across the Sahara and the Andes.

Saint Exupery, and his navigator Andre Prevot, are left almost without water and food, as chances of finding an oasis or help from the air gradually decrease. The book illustrates the author's view of the world and his opinions of what makes life worth living. (portions courtesy of Wikipedia). This limited edition volume is number 723.

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (29 June 1900—31 July 1944) was a French writer and aviator. He is best remembered for his novella The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince), and for his books about aviation adventures, including Night Flight and Wind, Sand and Stars. He was a successful commercial pilot before World War II, joining the Armée de l'Air (French Air Force) on the outbreak of war, flying reconnaissance missions until the armistice with Germany. Following a spell of writing in the United States, where he wrote The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince), he joined the Free French Forces. He disappeared on a reconnaissance flight over the Mediterranean in July 1944. His plane was lost on July 31, 1944, and his fate remained a mystery until recently, when wreckage of an aircraft found in the sea near Marseilles was proven to be from his plane.

Title/Description: Kodak Complete


Condition/Details: This handsome Kodak Complete 8x10" professional folding bed camera has a rear extension, and extends back to 7x11" with five plate holders. The camera comes with a homemade 4 1/4" lens board. This camera was based on a design by the famous German camera designer of the 19th century, Ernst Gundlach. The marron bellows of this vintage camera appear to be almost new, and the dark wood has a fine petina.
Ernst Gundlach was born in 1834 and emigrated to America in 1872, already a well known and accomplished optician. His objectives were considered among the best, especially when cost was a consideration and were already being sold in this country by Queen & Co. In 1876, Gundlach went to work for Bausch & Lomb, in Rochester, making many contributions to the emerging Bausch & Lomb line of stands. By 1878, he had severed his connection with Bausch & Lomb, and opened his own business in Rochester. Gundlach Optical Company remained in Rochester and continued to make Gundlach microscopes into the 20th century. However, Gundlach's exact relationship to this company is unclear. It is known that he had no connection to the company after 1895, and, instead, produced photographic lenses under the name "Gundlach Photo-Optical Co. In 1902, Gundlach Optical Company acquired Manhattan Optical Co. They manufactured microscopes under their new name, Gundlach-Manhattan Optical Co., a common example being a small case-mounted portable microscope. Ernst Gundlach returned to Germany around 1900.
