BERLIN, Irving
Signed Collection of Sheet Music
[1981]. Hardcover. Thick quarto (8-7/8" x 11-3/4" x 3" thick) in a plastic-enclosed black pebbled leather 3-hole binder containing 194 vintage pieces of sheet music by Irving Berlin, likely all reprints, specially compiled and arranged alphabetically with a special contents page bound at the front. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the composer on the front endpaper: "For Rosemary and Earl Wilson/with love from/Irving Berlin -- 1981." A privately compiled effort exclusively produced and supervised by Irving Berlin during his twilight years, likely only for his closest friends. We are aware of the existence of only one other copy, that belonging to Harold Arlen. Earl Wilson was one of the best known gossip columnists of his day and an authority on Broadway and show business. He often interviewed Berlin, including the well-known interview in December 1953 about HOLIDAY INN when Berlin told Wilson: "But the public liked 'White Christmas' and it became a runaway. You see, a war song doesn't have to be about wars. This is really a peace song." Wilson and Berlin were longtime friends maintaining a 35-year correspondence. Signed page a bit wrinkled not affecting Berlin's writing. Near Fine and possibly unique .

BERLIN, Irving
Typed Letter Signed (Tls) on the Rumor That a "Colored Boy" Wrote His Songs
14 June 1948. Letter. On a sheet of his personal stationery (7" x 10") addressed to Michael de Lisio of MGM Pictures, Berlin answers an inquiry about a rumor, prevalent since the 1920s, that his songs had been written for him by an anonymous black boy. In full: "The little colored boy story that MacLane talks about is probably the Harry Ruby one. Some years ago, I walked into the Friar's Club with a three months Palm Beach tan and Harry Ruby, who was in the club, pointed to me and said 'there's the little colored fellow who writes all of Berlin's stuff.' Another Ruby crack about the colored fellow was -- Sometime ago, a songwriter asked Ruby how old the little colored boy was and Harry replied 'oh, about Irving's age.'" SIGNED by the composer "Irving Berlin." With a short typed statement by the recipient of the letter stating that he was working at the time for MGM in charge of publicity for EASTER PARADE. Superb letter. Faint folds from mailing. Near Fine .

BESTON, Henry
Archive of 4 Autographed Letters Signed
Letter. A fine archive of 4 AUTOGRAPH LETTERS SIGNED in Beston's neat hand consisting of 10 pages and 2 hand-addressed and SIGNED envelopes along with a small photograph of Beston and his wife, Elizabeth Coatsworth, annotated in another hand on the rear. Three of the letters are addressed to Wilmot Brewer and one to Brookes More, both of Hingham, Massachusetts, where Beston lived. Brewer edited a collection of poems by More and wrote a brief biography of him. In the letter to More, Beston thanks him for sending his translation of Ovid's METAMORPHOSES. In a letter to Brewer he thanks him for his book on More: "In days so confused and really terrible as these, it is sustaining to the spirit to read of one who has dedicated his life to beauty and the works of the muses." In another letter to Brewer dated 28 December 1941 Beston mentions World War II and thanks him for his "most readable study of the place and influence of the METAMORPHOSES." In the longest letter Beston comments on a book about Virgil: "The book does just what a book ought first of all to do, it enlarges life, throwing good wood on the fire of the imagination and stirring one's interest in the variety and richness of the human spirit." . Near Fine Henry Beston was an American writer and naturalist, best known as the author of THE OUTERMOST HOUSE, 1928, considered a classic of both writing about nature and about Cape Cod. Spiritually shaken by his experiences in World War I, which included being aboard an American destroyer during combat engagement and sinking, Beston retreated to the outer beach at Eastham in search of peace and solitude, which resulted in the creation of his classic. Beston is considered one of the fathers of the modern environmental movement. Rachel Carson said that Beston was the only author who ever influenced her writing.
