TWO SIGNED CHECKS: ONE SIGNED BY ERNEST, THE OTHER BY PAULINE: MATTED AND FRAMED TOGETHER WITH A PHOTOGRAPH. Ernest Hemingway, Pauline. TWO SIGNED CHECKS: ONE SIGNED BY ERNEST, THE OTHER BY PAULINE: MATTED AND FRAMED TOGETHER WITH A PHOTOGRAPH.
Check No. 62 for $200, in Hemingway's hand and signed by him, drawn on The National City Bank of New York, September 14 1932, and made payable to Sarah E. Dousman. The online Guide to the Ernest Hemingway Collection at The John F. Kennedy Library, Boston, MA, records an undated 4-page letter from Dousman in Red Lodge, MT, to Pauline, but does not elucidate its contents or her relationship to the Hemingways. However, the main character, Robert Jordan, in FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS hails from Red Lodge, which was a favorite vacation spot of Hemingway's, so perhaps they knew each other (or conducted business) during his visits there. Together with Check No. 176 for $100 made out to "Cash" on May 22 1933 and signed by Pauline. Matted and framed together with a copy of the well-known AP images of Hemingway arriving in New York on an oceanliner in 1934 with "(second wife) Pauline 'Fife' Pfeiffer." Checks are approximately 2.5 x 6.5"; photo is approximately 6 x 6" and frame is approximately 12.5 x 21". Altogether near fine.

THE MEMOIRS OF HERBERT HOOVER: 1874-1920: Years of Adventure. Herbert Hoover. THE MEMOIRS OF HERBERT HOOVER: 1874-1920: Years of Adventure.
New York: Macmillan Company, 1951. First edition. INSCRIBED, "To my friend Otto G. Lindberg from Herbert Hoover." Lindberg's great claim to fame is that in the 1930's as founder of General Drafting Co., a map-making business, he and his assistant, Ernest Alpers, added a totally fictitious place called "Agloe" to an out-of-the-way dirt road in New York state (to keep other companies from pirating their maps). "Agloe," which was an anagram of their combined initials, has subsequently appeared on maps for years -- and was only just removed from Google Maps in 2014. Fine in very good to near fine dust jacket with minor wear and chipping on the corners and spine ends.

WODWO. Ted Hughes. WODWO.
London: Faber & Faber, (1967). First edition. Prize-winning poet Anthony Hecht's copy with his ownership signature on the front endpaper. A PRESENTATION COPY, INSCRIBED by Hughes, "To Tony/ in Memoriam/ from Ted/ 13 July 1967." This was Hughes first book of poems after wife Sylvia Plath's death from suicide in 1963 -- we assume the "in Memoriam" is for her, as she and Hecht were very close friends, which is clearly indicated by her intimate letters to him. Plath and Hecht met while both were teaching at Smith College (1956-1962), where Hughes also taught. After Plath's death, Hughes and Hecht continued to be friends and each man went on to win numerous awards and to become the Poet Laureate of their country. Ted Hughes was known to greatly admired Hecht, calling him "one of the most accomplished of his extremely accomplished generation." The book is crisp and fine with only very minor wear; in a near fine, lightly age-toned dust jacket with slightly darkened spine and a few tiny nicks. An early, important association copy between two poets who went on to become highly esteemed in each other's countries as well as their own. IMPORTANT ASSOCIATION COPY.
