Martin Birnbaum. 1920.
A collection of thirty eight rare exhibition catalogues dating to the early 1900's from the personal library of the noted art dealer and writer Martin Birnbaum. Several of the books have essays by him. Included in the set is an exhibition catalogue dedicated to the works of the important French artist Jules Pascin which is highlighted by an original watercolor by the painter inscribed to Mr. Birnbaum. There is also an inscribed watercolor by the American artist Anne Goldthwaite on her catalogue title page. Martin Birnbaum was also an accomplished violinist and two of the catalogues have a small, original drawing by him of a figure playing the instrument. This fascinating collection is presented in a set of eight leather bound slipcases created for Mr. Birnbaum.
All the books are in very good condition. Some light wear here and there to the bound slipcases, else all are in very good condition.

William Henry Jackson. New York/Putnam/1940.
Time Exposure: The Autobiography of William Henry Jackson. Published in New York by Putnam in 1940. First edition. This is the personal copy of Henry James Boice of Wyoming. Mr. Boice was apparently an acquaintance of the famous photographer as there are several items of personal ephemera of Jackson included in the book. There are two signed letters to the owner. One is a typewritten, hand signed letter on the Explorer's Club stationery from Jackson to Boice thanking him for several photos (which are tucked into the book) showing areas in Wyoming that Jackson had himself photographed many years before. The other is a hand signed typewritten note saying "Thanks for clipping about South Pass, Sandys, and Green River Trails; reminding me very much of my flying trip by motor car a few years ago, over the same trails". There is also Mr. Jackson's personal business card listing his address as the Explorer's Club in New York City. The letter and business card are tipped in as are a number of newspaper clippings, some of which are also loose. The book is in good condition in dust jacket.
