ALEXANDER WOOLLCOTT AUTOGRAPH

Alexander Woollcott image.jpg

Alexander Humphreys Woollcott was born January 19, 1887 – died January 23, 1943.  Woollcott was an American critic and commentator for The New Yorker magazine, and a member of the Algonquin Round Table. He was the inspiration for Sheridan Whiteside, the main character in the play The Man Who Came to Dinner by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, and for the far less likable character Waldo Lydecker in the classic film Laura. He claimed to be the inspiration for Rex Stout's brilliant detective Nero Wolfe, but Stout discounted this. Woollcott's review of the Marx Brothers' Broadway debut, I'll Say She Is, helped highlight the renaissance of the group's career and started a life-long friendship with Harpo Marx. Two of Harpo's adopted sons are named William (Bill) Woollcott Marx and Alexander Marx after him.

EDGAR ALBERT GUEST AUTOGRAPHED FLY LEAF

EdgarAlbertGuest.jpg

Edgar Albert Guest was born August 20, 1881 in Birmingham, England – died August 5, 1959 in Detroit, Michigan.  Guest was a prolific American poet who was popular in the first half of the 20th century and became known as the People’s Poet. In 1891, Guest came with his family to the United States from England. After he began at the Detroit Free Press as a copy boy and then a reporter, his first poem appeared December 11, 1898. He became a naturalized citizen in 1902. For 40 years, Guest was widely read throughout North America, and his sentimental, optimistic poems were in the same vein as the light verse of Nick Kenny, who wrote syndicated columns during the same decades. From his first published work in the Detroit Free Press until his death in 1959, Guest penned some 11,000 poems which were syndicated in some 300 newspapers and collected in more than 20 books, including A Heap o' Livin' (1916) and Just Folks (1917). Guest was made Poet Laureate of Michigan, the only poet to have been awarded the title. His popularity led to a weekly Detroit radio show which he hosted from 1931 until 1942, followed by a 1951 NBC television series, A Guest in Your Home. When Guest died in 1959, he was buried in Detroit's Woodlawn Cemetery. His work still occasionally appears in periodicals such as Reader's Digest, and some favorites, such as "Myself" and "Thanksgiving," are still studied today. Guest received a mention in Lemony Snicket's The Grim Grotto, though not in a particularly favorable manner. His great-niece Judith Guest is a successful novelist who wrote Ordinary People.

HOWARD PEASE AUTOGRAPHED FLY LEAF

howard-pease-auto-fly-leaf.jpg

Howard Pease was born in 1894 - died in 1974.  Pease wrote from personal experience reflected in how Tod Moran (about 15 of his works were based upon the character William Todhunter Moran) first started to sea, as a summer job while he was attending Stanford University in Palo Alto CA. Even as a small boy the sea always attracted Howard Pease. Maybe because he lived on inland soil, out of sight of the fogs of the coast, yet on a river that flowed into San Francisco Bay. Born in Stockton, California, he finished high school there and then entered Stanford University. At the end of his freshman year he found himself enlisted in a university unit which was sent early to France. Two years later he returned to Stanford where he remained off and on until graduation. Writing had been Mr. Pease's main object and interest ever since the sixth grade and because he had no wish to write and starve in a garret, he now chose teaching as a profession, since it gave him long vacations in which to work at his typewriter. The sea, too, still attracted him. One summer he shipped out as a wiper in the engine room of a freighter-one of the few ship jobs an inexperienced youth can get. During Mr. Pease's first year of teaching school he started The Tattooed Man. It was the result of two voyages, together with a walking trip from Marseilles along the coast to Italy. The Jinx Ship was the result of another voyage. His book, The Ship Without a Crew, was written after a tropical winter in Tahiti and Highroad to Adventure after an automobile trip along the Pan-American Highway to Mexico. With his wife and son, Mr. Pease lived in San Francisco on a hill near the Golden Gate, where he devoted all his working hours to writing.

KRISTIN HUNTER AUTOGRAPHED TYPED LETTER

kristin-hunter-full-letter-.jpg

Kristin Elaine Hunter was born September 12, 1931.  Hunter is an African American writer from Pennsylvania. She has sometimes written under the name Kristin Hunter Lattany. Hunter was born Kristin Eggleston in Philadelphia, attended the University of Pennsylvania, and wrote for the Pittsburgh Courier, a black newspaper, until 1952. Her first novel, God Bless the Child, was published in 1964; like most of her work, it confronts complex issues of race and gender. Books written by Kristin Hunter: God Bless the Child, 1964. The Landlord, 1966. The Soul Brothers and Sister Lou, 1968. Guests in the Promised Land (stories), 1973. The Survivors, 1975. The Lakestown Rebellion, 1978. Lou in the Limelight, 1981. Kinfolks, 1996. Do Unto others, 2000. Original Kristin Hunter Autographed Typed letter, Approx. Size 8 1/2 x 11. Typed on Letter: 1233 Pine Street Philadelphia 7, Pa. October 31, 1963 Mr. John Wilcock 26 Perry Street New York City. Dear Mr. Wilcock: I may be more than you're bargaining for, but I'm answering your ad anyway. This September I accepted a job writing for the Philadelphia city government, and learned only two weeks later that Scribners had bought my first novel. Yesterday I learned that my agent has also sold the book to a British publisher. So a few dollars and pounds will be coming in, and I'm wondering... ...Just what am I doing facing another cold winter in Philadelphia, with another career job on my hands(I spent nine years in advertising), when I obviously ought to be in a lovely warm place like Mexico or Puerto Rico, finishing that play and those poems, and starting another novel? Well, because it's hard for a girl to take off for the unknown alone, and also because I have trouble overcoming my upbringing, i.e. the middle-class habit of making money. Your assignment might be just the incentive I need. You should be fully warned that I'm always involved in creative projects of my own. But I would give respectful and responsible attention to your work. I'm a fast typist, though I don't know shorthand, and a superb writer. I'm divorced, 30 and getting younger, slightly colored and extremely healthy. My new job is fun, possibly because I tend to think most things are fun, and my new apartment is elegant, but Philadelphia is a graveyard, as the Voice and your lively column remind me every week. So I invite you to induce me to leave it all behind. I'll be in New York soon to see my publisher, and would look foward to meeting you then, even if nothing further comes of it. Sincerely yours. Kristin Hunter. Regluar Price - $ 185.00 / Sale Price - $ 98.00.


GEORGE ALLAN ENGLAND AUTOGRAPH

George Allen England.jpg

American author George Allan England was born in Nebraska in 1877 and died in New Hampshire in 1936. In between he was educated at Harvard University, where he received a masters degree in English Literature in 1903. England roamed the world as an explorer/journalist and many of his articles appeared through the 20's in The Saturday Evening Post. It was as a journalist that England first came to Newfoundland. He later wrangled his way on to a sealing vessel and wrote what Ebbitt Cutler, in his introduction to the 1969 reprint of Vikings of the Ice under the title The Greatest Hunt in the World described as "... the only detailed eyewitness description of day-by-day life aboard a wooden wall ever to be written." In 1912, England began publishing his still popular science-fiction trilogy, Darkness and Dawn. His other books include The Golden Blight (1912), The Air Trust (1915), Bill Jenkins, Buccaneer (1917), Cursed (1919), Keep Off the Grass (1919), The Flying Legion (1920), The White Wilderness (1922), Adventure Isle (1925) and Isle of Romance (1929).

WILLIAM DEAN HOWELLS AUTOGRAPH

200px-William_Dean_Howells.jpg

William Dean Howells was born March 1, 1837 – died May 11, 1920.  Howells was an American realist author and literary critic. In 1856, Howells was elected as a Clerk in the State House of Representatives. In 1858, he began to work at the Ohio State Journal where he wrote poetry, short stories, and also translated pieces from French, Spanish, and German. He avidly studied German and other languages and was greatly interested in Heinrich Heine. In 1860, he visited Boston and met with American writers J. T. Fields, James Russell Lowell, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry David Thoreau, and Ralph Waldo Emerson. Said to be rewarded for a biography of Abraham Lincoln used during the election of 1860, he gained a consulship in Venice. On Christmas Eve 1862, he married Elinor Mead at the American embassy in Paris. Upon returning to the U.S., he wrote for various magazines, including Atlantic Monthly and Harper's Magazine. From 1866, he became an assistant editor for the Atlantic Monthly and was made editor in 1871, remaining in the position until 1881. In 1869, he first met Mark Twain, which sparked a longtime friendship. Even more important for the development of his literary style--his advocacy of Realism--was his relationship with the journalist Jonathan Baxter Harrison, who in the 1870s wrote a series of articles for the Atlantic Monthly on the lives of ordinary Americans (Fryckstedt 1958). He wrote his first novel, Their Wedding Journey, in 1872, but his literary reputation took off with the realist novel A Modern Instance, published in 1882, which described the decay of a marriage. His 1885 novel The Rise of Silas Lapham is perhaps his best known, describing the rise and fall of an American entrepreneur in the paint business. His social views were also strongly reflected in the novels Annie Kilburn (1888) and A Hazard of New Fortunes (1890). He was particularly outraged by the trials resulting from the Haymarket Riot. While known primarily as a novelist, his short story "Editha" (1905) appears in many anthologies of American literature.

HAMLIN GARLAND AUTOGRAPH

180px-Hamlin_Garland_-_Project_Gutenberg_etext_20695.jpg

Hamlin Hannibal Garland was born September 14, 1860 – died March 4, 1940.  Garland was an American novelist, poet, essayist, and short story writer. He is best known for his fiction involving hard-working Midwestern farmers. Born in West Salem, Wisconsin, he lived on various Midwestern farms throughout his young life, but he settled in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1884 to pursue a career in writing. His first success came in 1891 with Main-Traveled Roads, a collection of short stories inspired by his days on the farm. He serialized a biography of Ulysses S. Grant in McClure's Magazine before publishing it as a book in 1898. The same year, Garland traveled to the Yukon to witness the Klondike Gold Rush, which inspired The Trail of the Gold Seekers (1899). A prolific writer, Garland continued to publish novels, short fiction, and essays. In 1917, he published his autobiography, A Son of the Middle Border. The book's success prompted a sequel, A Daughter of the Middle Border, for which Garland won the 1922 Pulitzer Prize for Biography. After two more volumes, Garland began a second series of memoirs based on his diary. Garland died at age seventy-nine, after moving to Hollywood, California, where he devoted his remaining years to investigating psychic phenomena, an enthusiasm he first undertook in 1891. He was buried in Neshonoc Cemetery in West Salem, Wisconsin. In his final book, The Mystery of the Buried Crosses (1939), he tried to defend such phenomenon and prove the legitimacy of psychic mediums. Hamlin Garland lived on a farm between Osage, and St. Ansgar, Iowa for quite some time. Many of his writings are based on this era of his life. The Hamlin Garland House in West Salem is a historical site.

NORMAN MAILER AUTOGRAPH

208px-Normanmailer.jpg

Norman Kingsley Mailer was born January 31, 1923 – died November 10, 2007. Norman was an American novelist, journalist, essayist, poet, playwright, screenwriter and film director. Along with Truman Capote, Joan Didion, Hunter S. Thompson, John McPhee, and Tom Wolfe, Mailer is considered an innovator of narrative nonfiction, a genre sometimes called New Journalism, but which covers the essay to the nonfiction novel. He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize twice and the National Book Award once. In 1955, Mailer, together with Ed Fancher and Dan Wolf, first published The Village Voice, which began as an arts- and politics-oriented weekly newspaper initially distributed in Greenwich Village. In 2005, he won the Medal for Distinguished Contribution to American Letters from The National Book Foundation. In 1948, while continuing his studies at the Sorbonne in Paris, Mailer published The Naked and the Dead, based on his military service in World War II. A New York Times best seller for 62 weeks, it was hailed by many as one of the best American wartime novels and named one of the "one hundred best novels in English language" by the Modern Library. Barbary Shore (1951) was a surreal parable of Cold War left politics set in a Brooklyn rooming-house. His 1955 novel The Deer Park drew on his experiences working as a screenwriter in Hollywood in 1949-50. It was initially rejected by seven publishers due to its purportedly sexual content before being published by Putnam's. In the tradition of Dickens and Dostoevsky, Mailer wrote his fourth novel, An American Dream, as a serial in Esquire magazine over eight months (January to August 1964), publishing the first chapter only two months after he wrote it. In March 1965, Dial Press published a revised version.  Harlot's Ghost, Mailer's longest novel (1310 pages), appeared in 1991. It is an exploration of the unspoken dramas of the CIA from the end of WWII to 1965. He performed a huge amount of research for the novel, which is still on CIA reading lists. He ended the novel with the words "To be continued," and planned to write a sequel, titled Harlot's Grave. Mailer wrote over 40 books. He published 11 novels over a 59-year stretch.
