THE PRE-RAPHAELITE BROTHERHOOD: A Critical Monograph. Ford Madox Ford, Ford Madox Hueffer. THE PRE-RAPHAELITE BROTHERHOOD: A Critical Monograph.
London/ New York: Duckworth & Co./E. P. Dutton, [1907]. First edition. Like his earlier artists' studies, this one is published in the "Popular Library of Art" series (later printing copies are in the "Masters of Painting" series). INSCRIBED, "For George Keating / Ford Madox Ford," most likely in the 1930's. After Ford's heart attack in 1931 left him broke, Keating offered to pay his way to New York and acted as an advisor on which publishers he should approach. Keating, an executive in a paper company, eventually amassed a large collection of Conradiana, which he donated to Yale University. In a 1973 letter to Thomas Moser regarding, among other things, the Arthur Mizener biography of Ford, THE SADDEST STORY, Keating wrote, "I found [it] very interesting but wondered a bit about his facts. For instance, the references he made to me (several times) were not entirely correct. During the last few years I had quite a lot to do with Ford and I am happy to say that I feel I did not let the old man down." Original red cloth with gilt lettering and design on spine and front cover and TEG. Mild damp staining to and along spine, otherwise only minor wear and would be very good. Harvey A23 calls for brown boards, making this a variant in a nicer binding. INSCRIBED TO COLLECTOR AND BENEFACTOR, GEORGE KEATING.

WHEN BLOOD IS THEIR ARGUMENT: An Analysis of Prussian Culture. Ford Madox Ford, Ford Madox Hueffer. WHEN BLOOD IS THEIR ARGUMENT: An Analysis of Prussian Culture.
New York and London: Hodder & Stoughton, 1915. First edition [Harvey A49]. "A lively, personal, and extremely persuasive indictment of modern Prussianism" (Daily Telegraph). INSCRIBED on the half-title page, "For George Keating / Ford Madox Ford." After Ford's heart attack in 1931 left him broke, Keating offered to pay his way to New York and acted as an advisor on which publishers he should approach. Keating, an executive in a paper company, eventually amassed a large collection of Conradiana, which he donated to Yale University. Laid in is a TLS from Keating to Ford biographer/literary critic Thomas Moser relating a story about Yale and Ford. It reads in part, "I can tell you a funny story regarding Ford. I gave . . . practically a complete [Ford] collection to the university and they later asked me if I would ask Ford to give a talk . . . . [after making arrangements for the talk and not hearing from them] I called them . . . only to learn that they had changed their mind and then they had the gall to add, did I think Ford would autograph the set of first editions I had given them. I told them very bluntly I did not....." Keating goes on to relate an offer of assistance he made to Joseph Conrad's son, Borys, in a cable to his wife, "I cabled Mrs. Conrad, offering to make full restitution to the injured party so that his father's name would not suffer and I have some place on file the cable advising, 'nothing can be done--grateful thanks--Conrad' or words to that effect. At one time or another in all our lives, there arises something that we deeply regret and would never repeat doing, and I felt this was true of Borys' act." Red cloth lettered in black on front cover and spine. Light shelf wear and spine slightly toned, still very good. INSCRIBED TO A BENEFACTOR, WITH INTERESTING AND ILLUMINATING TYPED LETTER SIGNED LAID IN.

THE DILLINGHAMS OF HAWAI'I: Links in an Island Chain. Hugh W. Foster. THE DILLINGHAMS OF HAWAI'I: Links in an Island Chain.
(San Francisco): Norfolk Press, (2011). First edition. One of 100 copies published primarily for the family. SIGNED by the author. Foster, a member of the family, writes a history of Walter Dillingham (1875-1963) who was born in Honolulu during the Kingdom of Hawaii. Walter's father, Benjamin Dillingham, founded the Oahu Railway and Land Company. His mother was Emma Louise Smith, daughter of missionary Lowell Smith, who arrived in Hawaii in 1830. Walter first worked as a clerk for his father, then managed the Dowsett Company and founded Hawaiian Dredging Company. In 1904, while his father was hospitalized, he managed the company. In 1909, he constructed a dry dock at Pearl Harbor which eventually became part of the US Navy base. He also enlarged the ports of Kahului and Hilo; drained the wetlands of Waikiki in the early 1920s; and created the Ala Wai Canal on whose banks the Hawaii Convention Center was built. In 1948, Dillingham Airfield, a small Air Force base near Mokuleia, Hawaii was named for Walter's son, Captain Henry Gaylord Dillingham, a B-29 pilot who was killed in action over Kawasaki, Japan, on July 25, 1945. In 1961, his son Lowell Smith Dillingham (1911-1987) merged the remains of the Oahu Railway and Land Company and the Hawaiian Dredging and Construction Company to form the Dillingham Corporation. It was sold to private investors in 1983. The book, for the first time, tells the story of this complex man, his forbearers and his family. Quoting such primary sources as his own letters and speches, the memories of others and the opinion of those who are still alive and knew him best. The history of the Dillingham family in many ways reflects the history of Hawaii. 405 pages, including 11 pages of notes to the text; a bibliography; list of personal interviews; and a chronology. Illustrated with family photographs. New in dust jacket. ONE OF ONLY 100 COPIES.

THE MIGHTY BARNUM: A Screen Play. Gene Fowler, , Bess Meredyth. THE MIGHTY BARNUM: A Screen Play
New York: Covici Freide, (1934). First edition. Touted as "the first full-length scenario for an actual talking picture production to be published in book form."

INSCRIBED TO A MAJOR BOOK COLLECTOR BY FOWLER, "To that assidious and clever collector, and my friend as well, Earle Bernheimer. Gene Fowler 1947."

Aside from the large sums he paid for important Frost items, he arranged over the years to pay Frost a kind of stipend for whatever he cared to send him from month to month -- be it drafts, proofs or wastebasket shavings. Illustrated with stills from the movie starring Wallace Beery as P.T. Barnum and featuring Adolphe Menjou. Very good or better in good dust jacket with a few chips and spine a little darkened and with closed tears backed with acid free archival clear tape,
