MORRIS L. WEST AUTOGRAPH FLY LEAF

Morris_west.jpg

Morris L. West April 26, 1916 - died October 9, 1999. West was an Australian writer and was awarded the 1959 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for his novel The Devil's Advocate. He was born in St Kilda, Victoria and attended Christian Brothers' College, East St Kilda. He graduated from the University of Melbourne in 1937, and worked as a teacher in New South Wales and Tasmania. He spent 12 years in a monastery of the Christian Brothers, taking annual vows, but left without taking final vows. After leaving Australia in 1955 he lived in Austria, Italy, England and the United States, finally returning to Australia in 1980. His works often were focused on international politics and the role of the Roman Catholic Church in international affairs. One of his most famous works, The Shoes of the Fisherman, envisioned the election and career of a Slavic Pope, 15 years before the ascension of Karol Wojtyła to his historical role of becoming Pope John Paul II. Morris West died while working at his desk on the final chapters of his novel The Last Confession about the trials and imprisonment of Giordano Bruno, who was burned at the stake for heresy in 1600. Bruno was a figure with whom West had long sympathized and even identified. In 1969 he had published a play The Heretic on the same subject. A major theme in much of West's work was a question: when so many organizations use extreme violence towards evil ends, when and under what circumstances is it morally acceptable for their opponents to respond with violence? Film adaptations: The Shoes of the Fisherman (1968), The Devil's Advocate (1978), The Naked Country (1984), The Second Victory (1986), Cassidy (1989).

ARTHUR STANWOOD PIER AUTOGRAPHED LETTER

arthur-stanwood-auto-letter.jpg

Arthur Stanwood Pier was born in Pittsburgh on April 21, 1874. Arthur Stanwood Pier graduated from St. Paul's in 1890, but, being only 16 years old at the time and judged too young for immediate entry to college, spent an additional postgraduate year at the school. He entered Harvard in 1891.  Pier's first book, an underrated novel of Cambridge life in the "aesthetic" 1890s, was The Pedagogues (1899), which took as its setting the Harvard Summer School. The Boys of St. Timothy's, the first of his boarding school stories, followed five years later. St. Timothy's, a lightly fictionalized version of St. Paul's School, would be the setting of eleven more Arthur Stanwood Pier books, among them several classics of the turn-of-the-century school story genre.  In 1909, Pier married Elise R. Hall of Boston, with whom he would have two children. They were a close couple -- a sense of what their marriage meant to each other can be gotten from Pier's novel The Women We Marry -- and Elise's death in 1922 came as a personal tragedy. When he retired from teaching in 1944, he moved back to Boston and resumed his career as a full-time writer. In the end, the number of titles that had proceeded from his pen was thirty two. He died on August 14, 1966, at the age of 92. Original Arthur Stanwood Pier Autographed Hand Written Letter, approx. size 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches. Written on letter: St. Paul's School Concord, N.H. Feb. 24, 1931. Dear Mr. Tricker: Thank you for the compliment of your note. I am sorry to have to say that as I don't smoke I have no cigars bands to send you.
