        Ernst Heilemann: Kulturfortschritt (Originalzeichnung)

      1908 - Aquarell, Tusche und Deckweiß auf Karton  38 x 27,6 cm  Rechts unten signiert  Veröffentlicht:  Simplicissimus. Jahrgang 13 (1908), Heft 28, Seite 458  Text: „Früher heirateten die Männer, wenn es die Verhältnisse erlaubten, jetzt heiraten sie, wenn es das Verhältnis erlaubt.“ Biografie: Ernst Heilemann (1870 - 1936). Nach ein paar Semestern an der Berliner Hochschule der Bildenden Künste verlässt Ernst Heilemann die preußische Kunstmetropole, um sich auf Reisen nach Italien, Frankreich, Großbritannien und den USA autodidaktisch weiterzubilden. Zurück in Berlin macht sich der junge Künstler innerhalb kurzer Zeit mit Darstellungen aus dem mondänen Gesellschaftsleben sowie als Porträtmaler einen Namen. Diesen festigt er durch regelmäßige Teilnahme an den Großen Berliner Kunstausstellungen sowie durch Einzelausstellungen in der Berliner Galerie Eduard Schulte (1902 und 1912) und im Berliner Künstlerhaus (1918). In der Weimarer Republik wendet sich Heilemann der Neuen Sachlichkeit zu. Zwischen 1898 und 1912 ist Heilemann mit knapp 200 Beiträgen in der Münchner Satirezeitschrift Simplicissimus vertreten. Fast immer handelt es sich um Szenen aus dem großbürgerlich-aristokratischen Milieu, dessen scheinbar sorgloses Dasein und zahlreiche Vergnügungen er mit schwungvollem Strich festhält. Sowohl hinsichtlich der Motive als auch des Zeichenstils orientiert sich Heilemann an den Werken des Simplicissimus-Mitarbeiters Eduard Thöny, mit dem er befreundet ist. Im Gegensatz zu Thöny fehlt bei Heilemann jedoch das karikierende Element, eher sind seine Beiträge von einem eleganten Illustrationsstil geprägt. Das wiederum verbindet ihn mit Ferdinand von Reznicek. Er ist am Simplicissimus für eben jenes Genre zuständig, das Heilemann nicht weniger brillant beherrscht und nach dessen Tod 1909 übernimmt.

        My African Journey, publisher's presentation copy of the first edition, only printing

      Hodder and Stoughton, London 1908 - This is a presentation copy of the British first edition, only printing of My African Journey, Churchill's travelogue on Britain's possessions in East Africa, written while he was serving as Undersecretary of State for the Colonies. This copy is embossed in two lines on the upper right of the title page with the words "PRESENTATION | COPY." Churchill’s bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen, cites 8,161 copies of the cloth-bound British first edition, of which 7870 were sold and "291 were distributed gratis." This copy is undoubtedly one of these 291. We have encountered only one other copy embossed thus, and that copy also bore an original publisher’s review slip, corroborating both early and gratis distribution. Condition is good - sound and original, but unlovely. The striking red cloth binding is square and tight with good spine color and only minor wear to extremities, but regrettably heavily soiled and stained on both covers and spine. The contents remain bright with a crisp feel. We find no previous ownership marks. Spotting, endemic to this edition, is very light, with only a few scattered spots within and almost none evident on the page edges. My African Journey is notable, among other things, for being the only one of Churchill many books to contain photographs apparently taken by the author.The 61 photographs of this edition were tipped in rather than bound, so copies should always be carefully checked to ensure the presence of all illustrations and maps. All are present here, as is the tissue cover at the frontispiece. Of note, the map at page 2 is tipped in as a folding map. The majority of first edition copies of My African Journey we have examined feature this as a tipped in map on a single, unfolded page. This folding map is exactly the same in content and scale as maps in other first edition copies, the difference being that blank one inch margins at the top and bottom of this particular map were left untrimmed after printing, and thus it was tipped into this copy with the top two inches folded over. Given presence of the folding map in a publisher’s presentation copy, we incline to attribute the folding map at p.2 to earlier bindings of the first and only printing. In the summer of 1907 Churchill left England for five months, making his way after working stops in southern Europe to Africa for "a tour of the east African domains." In early November, Churchill would kill a rhinoceros, the basis of the striking illustration on the front cover of the British first edition of his eventual book. By now a seasoned and financially shrewd author, Churchill arranged to profit doubly from the trip, first by serializing articles in The Strand Magazine and then by publishing a book based substantially upon them. In November 1908 Hodder and Stoughton published My African Journey as a book, which was a substantial 10,000 words longer than the serialized articles. The British first edition is striking, with a vivid red binding and a prominent front cover bearing a woodcut illustration in blue, grey, and black of Churchill with his bagged white rhinoceros. The red cloth spine proved exceptionally vulnerable to sunning and the lovely books seem to have attracted handling, making wear and soiling the norm. Spotting is also endemic. Bright and clean copies are scarce. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A27.1, Woods/ICS A12(aa), Langworth p.81 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter signed ("Gertrude"). [Paris], "Rue de Fleurus", 27. XII. 1908.

      1908. 8vo. 4 pp. on bifolium. To "my dear people", i. e. Hortense (Guggenheimer) Moses and her son Dickey: "Many thanks for the three Dickies and the papa and the mama. Seems to me Dickey looks a good deal like his papa Jakie [...] Please say Merry Christmas to him [...] and did he eat too much candy like aunty Gertrude [...] Oh Dickey, you are going but we are never too young to learn. Dickey, Dickey listen to the words as they tumble off your wise auntie's pen, never, no never when the Merry Christmas time comes round don't you ever eat too much sweet cake and sweet candy and above all [...] don't ever mix up such sweet cake and sweet candy with salt pickles. Dickey, a lady what never tells lies tells you that that's a bad way to do. She did it, her big brother did it [...]". - Stein refers to her older brother, Leo Stein, and to Hortense Guggenheimer Moses, the cousin of her close friend, Etta Cone (1870-1949), who with her sister Claribel, collected an important grouping of modern French art. Stein penned this letter about 6 years after her arrival from Baltimore to Paris where she established her renown salon [...]". - One short tear at center fold, otherwise in good condition, with holograph envelope.

        Autograph letter signed to an unidentified male recipient

      - 2 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Dated Garmisch, July, 20, [19]08. On lined paper. In French (with translation). An important letter in which Strauss discusses the forthcoming Dresden, Berlin, and Monte Carlo premières of his opera, Elektra. ". Tell [Raoul Gunsbourgh] that I am sure to finish the score for Elektra by September, that everything will be printed by the beginning of December and that the French première at Monte Carlo can take place towards the end of February or the beginning of March. I myself will be able to conduct Elektra at Monte Carlo if all circumstances permit. I want to personally assist in the première of Elektra at Dresden (at the end of January). "Very slightly soiled; creased at folds. As promised, Strauss completed the score for Elektra on September 22, 1908. The opera premièred at the Dresden Hofoper on January 25, 1909, followed shortly thereafter by a performance in Berlin on February 15. Although publically announced in newspapers such as the New York Times, the Monte Carlo première appears not to have eventuated. The French language première of the opera was actually given by the Manhattan Opera Company on February 1, 1910; Strauss accorded the first American performance of Elektra to this fledgling company of Oscar Hammerstein's as something of an act of revenge upon the Metropolitan Opera for banning his previous opera, Salome. Raoul Gunsbourgh (1860-1955) was the longest-serving director of the Opéra de Monte-Carlo, his career there spanning almost six decades.

        The Collected Works in Verse And Prose. Imprinted At The Shakespeare Head Press Stratford-on-Avon.

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1908 - 8 volumes, octavo. Original quarter vellum, grey cloth boards, titles to upper boards and spines gilt, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Light soiling and the odd stain to spines, trivial rubbing to the tips, otherwise an excellent set, sound and fresh. Frontis portrait to first volume. First collected edition, one of 250 first issues sets in the deluxe quarter vellum binding, with the publisher Chapman & Hall's imprint on the spines and title pages, from a total edition of 1,060 sets printed at the Shakesepare Head Press. As a production, this collected edition is regarded as a marvellous piece of publishing (Yeats himself was proud of it, remarking, "I think nobody of our time has had so fine an edition—I believe it will greatly strengthen my position"), collecting, with the poet's own selection and arrangement, a substantially complete corpus (poems, plays and prose) of his first canon of work, before the finding of his later voice. Sales were slow and the majority of the edition was later issued in a secondary, cheaper cloth binding. Sets like this in the primary deluxe binding are hard to come by. This set has the armorial bookplates in each volume of Thomas Evelyn Scott-Ellis (1880-1946), 8th Baron Howard de Walden, a British peer, collector of armour and heraldry, author (producing several plays under the pseudonym T. E. Ellis), and patron of the arts. In 1914 he funded the creation, by Augustus John, of the Crab Tree Club in London (clientelle including Jacob Epstein, Walter Sickert, Paul Nash, Henri Gaudier-Brzeska, Compton Mackenzie and Jean Rhys), and in that year was one of the people "blessed" in Wyndham Lewis's vorticist magazine Blast. In 1908, the year of this set's publication, Scott-Ellis participated in the first and only motor boat race at the London Olympics. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Fashion drawings 1908-1910.

      MODE WEELDE ANNO 1908-1910Mode ontwerpen, tekeningen in zwarte en blauwe inkt vervaardigd ca. 1908-1910 door Olga Behr en Gladys. Afm. afbeeldingen ca. 35 x 14-16 cm, lijsten 54 x 34 cm.Het is een tijdperk waarin de Parijse mode huizen de stijl dicteren. Ontwerpers sturen hun mannequins naar de paardenraces van Longchamp om in de laatste creaties te flaneren en te worden gespot door de fotografen. De ideale vrouw was lang, had een slanke taille maar volle heupen en boezem, opgestoken golvend haar en was modieus en zelfverzekerd. Jurken hadden vloeiende lijnen een sleep en hoge taille. Vrouwen droegen enorme hoeden afgezet met grote prachtige veren en brede linten. Nog even en de Belle Epoque is voorbij.Het is de tijd waarin de moderne vrouw wordt 'geboren'. Een nieuwe generatie zoekt een ander leven dan dat van hun moeders en grootmoeders. Ze trekken naar de steden op zoek naar avontuur en onafhankelijkheid, zoeken werk als verkoopsters, zakenvrouw of carrièrevrouw en kregen daarmee eigen inkomsten. Vanaf de de jaren "10 gaat men meer make-up gebruiken, dat dan niet meer alleen geassocieerd wordt met theater of onzedelijk gedrag.Prijs: € 625,- (per stuk, incl. lijst, incl. 21% BTW).

        Sommervögel. Meinem Freund Albert Welti zugeeignet.

      Verlag von H. Schaffstein., Köln a. Rh. 1908 - 4tes bis 5tes Tausend. Köln a. Rh. Verlag von H. Schaffstein. (1908). 25,5x34 cm. 56 n.n. S., 1 Bl. Mit einem illustriertem Titel und 16 farbige ganzseitige Illustrationen (verso weiss). Originalhalbleinwandband mit farbiger Deckelillustration und mit illustrierten Vorsätzen. Hess/Wachter A 5. - Stark S. 189. - Titelauflage der ersten Ausgabe, die laut Stark in einer Auflage von 5500 Exemplaren gedruckt wurde. Wahrscheinlich liess Schaffstein, um den Verkauf zu fördern, was Verleger in dieser Zeit regelmässig taten, ein neues Titelblatt mit hoher Auflage drucken, damit versuchte Schaffstein den Eindruck eines "Bestsellers" zu erwecken, hatte er doch von der Volksausgabe der "Wiesenzwerge" 1906 innerhalb von 6 Wochen 33 Tausend Exemplare verkauft.- Vorliegendes Exemplar mit einer privaten Widmung aus dem Jahre 1912, die zweite Auflage des Buches erschien erst 1921. - Buchblock gebrochen, neu in 2 Bögen eingehängt und jeweils mit Leinwand im Falz verstärkt, dadurch ist der Buchblock gelockert. Sowohl die "Sommervögel" wie der "Gartentraum" sind in der Bindung technisch gescheitert, der Leinwandrücken kann das schwere Papier im Querformat nicht tragen, die meisten Exemplare sind deshalb im Innenfalz gebrochen und die Vorsätze, wie hier auch, weisen Knitterfalten aus. Die hier angewandte Lösung scheint mir vernünftig, da sie benutzerfreundlich ist. Sprache: Deutsch
