(Berkeley, CA): John Henry Nash, 1931. Four-page folio broadside, with a half-sheet laid in. This broadside is an invitation to the blessing of John Henry Nash's new home in the Contra Costa Hills of Berkeley, California. The first page is illustrated with an image of the entry to a house, with elaborately carved doors nestled between a portico and a stand of trees, under which is the text of the invitation and a list of the program committee members. Inside is a poem that starts, "May this new house built to endure, / But make our faith the more secure..." This poem appeared again in 1931 in a folio booklet Nash printed specially for Estelle Doheny. A map to "The Nash Place" is printed on a half-sheet of paper and laid in. Faint toning of the fore-edge of the first page, else fine. Item #27338
