        Pen and ink drawing: Jewish "Ghetto Girl" dressed as a flapper and tempted by a string of pearls

      Ca. 1910.. Very good condition. "New York's biggest problem is not its police, its fires, or even sanitation: it's its girls. ... The trouble is not exclusively with [working girls]; it is with girls in general in the United States, and particularly with girls in New York City. ... the working girl originates none of her evils; she acquires them from more fortunate sisters. ... The two perils which especially confront the working girl just now have been born of the dress and of the dancing she has copied from the girls who do not have to work." [Miss Trenholm, The New York Times, August 4, 1912.]& & A pen and ink illustration of a young woman dressed as a flapper, lying on her stomach, legs crossed at the ankles, and gazing at a jeweler who presents her with a long string of pearls. The flapper wears a silver gown, rolled dark stockings, and bobbed hair. The depiction of the jeweler is anti-Semitic, showing him as a stereotypical Jewish jeweler, with round spectacles and long white beard, offering the string of pearls to the young woman. In the early 1900s the young unmarried Jewish immigrant woman was stereotyped as a "Ghetto Girl", that is, a young woman tempted by clothing & jewelry and a life style far above the one to which fate had assigned her. With an indecipherable artist's signature at the lower right. 22 x 15 1/2"

      Aisthesis, 2010. 2010. Softcover. Good. 20,6 x 14,8 x 4 cm. Der Name war Programm: Um 1910 erprobten Schriftsteller, bildende Künstler und Architekten gemeinsam in Herwarth Waldens Zeitschrift "Der Sturm" den Aufstand gegen den spießbürgerlichen Mief des Wilhelminismus, der wie von einer Naturgewalt hinweggefegt werden sollte. Im "Sturm" erschienen unter anderem die verstörende Prosa Alfred Döblins, die Unruhe verbreitenden Zeichnungen von Oskar Kokoschka oder das begeistert begrüßte Architekturmanifest "Glasarchitektur" von Paul Scheerbart. Aber auch den Brücke-Künstlern, dem Blauen Reiter, den Futuristen, Kubisten, Konstruktivisten und den späteren Bauhaus-Protagonisten boten die Zeitschrift und ab 1912 die Kunstgalerie "Der Sturm" ein Podium. Die Arbeit untersucht erstmalig systematisch den Stellenwert der Architektur im Kulturnetzwerk dieser wirkungsmächtigen Zeitschrift. Sie zeigt auf, wie multilateral die neuen Kunstbewegungen um 1910 insgesamt von Architektur und architektonischen Ideen geprägt waren.

Designed to smell of motor oil -quite successfully. Marie Corelli (1 May 1855 21 April 1924) was a British novelist. She enjoyed a period of great literary success from the publication of her first novel in 1886 until World War I. Corelli's novels sold more copies than the combined sales of popular contemporaries, including Arthur Conan Doyle, H. G. Wells, and Rudyard Kipling. Corelli expressed a passion for the artist Arthur Severn, to whom she wrote daily letters from 1906 to 1917. Severn was the son of Joseph Severn and close friend to John Ruskin. In 1910, Arthur Severn and Corelli collaborated on The Devil's Motor with Severn providing illustrations for Corelli's story. Condition: In a decorative red cloth with gilt detailing. Externally generally smart, though with some marks to the spine and some light bumping. Internally, binding strained in places. Pages have some marginal age-toning and the occasional handling mark.

        Meeting D'Helioplis Rougier le gagnant sur biplan Voisin moteur E.N.V

      Paris.: Mabileau & Co.. 1910.. Color lithograph, matted, visible image approximately 16 x 32 1/2 inches. The lithograph was matted and framed in the 1980s, but will be removed from the frame for delivery. Visible image is very good with light creases to right upper edge; however, based on other prints framed at the same time and place, there is a toned line on the print along the mat window edge and brown adhesive paper tape along the edges of the sheet where the print was attached to the backing. The verso of the print is browned from the wood backing that was used in the frame. The lithograph could be deacidified and the tape removed; however as it stands it would display very well with the light brown line from matburn either covered or used as an accent line around the image. (Digital image taken with lithograph framed with nonglare glass). 'Gamy' is thought to be a pseudonym of Marguerite Montaut, the wife of the French poster artist Ernest Montaut, who died in 1909 at the age of 31. Ernest Montaut and, after his death, his wife, produced posters whose subject matter reflects the era's fascination with speed, on land and in the air. The posters were elaborately produced employing a combination of color lithography and handcoloring using the pochoir (stencil) process. This image is of a biplane flying over the desert with pyramids and Sphinx at left foreground and the ancient Egyptian city of Heliopolis in the distance. The title identifies the aviation race winner and name of the plane. .

        Hutwa - Manjha Marriage 1910. A complete folio Album Containing 23 Large Original Photographs.

      Johnston & Hoffmann, Calcutta 1910 - The album is complete and in original condition, containing a printed title page [HUTWA-MANJHA MARRIAGE 1910] and 23 large photographs mounted one to a facing page only, sizes varying but generally 9.5 x 10.5 ins or 7.5 x 12ins and similar. The photographs remain in good well toned condition some offsetting to facing pages. Bound in original untitled maroon leather gilt, some wear and the rear top corner affected by worming, which extends in to the last blank pages and the second half of the photograph pages with a very few small pin sized holes in the plates (often just one or two), no worm holes in the first half of the album which includes all the major portrait plates. This was the second Hutwa marriage in two years. In 1908 Maharaja Guru Mahadevesram Prosad Sari (who had succeeded his father at the age of three in 1896) had married the sister of the Maharaja of Manjha [an album of smaller pictures of that marriage was sold in the Christie's Visions of India Sale in 1998] but on this occasion it appears to be the Maharaja of Manjha marrying a princess of the Hutwa family. The photographs (from the front) comprise: the two maharajas seated with a retainer, Manjha standing with a retainer, a similar portrait, the two maharajas with young brothers, a larger group portrait of extended family and sirdars, the maharajas with principal guests [European and Indian], the bride in a palanquin with retainers, etc (4), the elephant procession with lancers, troops, retainers and crowds (4), a line of fourteen waiting elephants with mahouts, the great marriage elephant with ceremonial howdah, a shamiana, views of the palace and grounds (4). Finding these albums complete is increasingly difficult as they have often been raided for the more exciting or valuable images. As is usual at Hindu weddings the women and men are not shown together. Hutwa was a large but relatively obscure state in Bihar close to the Nepalese border. This is a large heavy album which will require extra shipping charges if sent abroad. We have other individual portraits of the Maharaja of Hutwa.

        The Good Puss

      [n.p.]: , c.1910. - Felonies Against Felines Afoot?WAIN, Louis. "The Good Puss." [N.d., ca. 1910]. Chromolithograph. Image size: 15 1/2 x 24 inches; 390 x 600 mm. Slight cockling, mounted to the image, title cartouche to lower right, framed and glazed.A delightful Wain chromolithograph depicting a pubescent cat in red bow tie, proudly holding a fork in his right hand with an impaled mouse on it, being walked by his father to "Dame Tibby's School," accompanied by nine adolescent cats of dubious class, character or attitude.Providing a dark edge to an otherwise playful image is a small sign at the entrance to Mrs. Tibby's which reads: "Cat's Meat Men Please Ring Here," suggesting that the cats enrolled at Mrs. Tibby's entered the front door as students and left through the back door as sausage: Mrs. Tibby as Sweeney Tabby, the Demon Barbara of Feline Street. As such, an unusual example of mordant humor from the tormented cat artist whose developing mental instability would cloud the sunshine of his subject matter.

        Animal Frolics

      1910. first edition. A Very Scarce Early Louis Wain with Four Marvelous Full-Color PlatesWAIN, Louis. Animal Frolics. London: John F. Shaw & Co. Ltd., [1910]. First edition. Small quarto (9 7/16 x 7 1/16 inches; 239 x 180 mm.). [32] pp. Four wonderful color plates mounted onto gray card. Numerous black and white drawings including eight full-page. Original gray cloth spine, decorated gray card wrappers with a copy of the color frontispiece mounted on the front cover. Small light stain to lower edge of rear board, just touching margin of last text leaf, otherwise a remarkable and near fine copy of this very scarce Louis Wain title.An unusual Louis Wain book with four color plates of Cats and Dogs and many black and white drawings of Bears, Lions, A Duck, An Elephant and a 'fishy' Hippo! We have never seen this title before.At the end of the nineteenth century, Louis Wain (1860-1939), the Edwardian cat artist who went mad, became a household name as an illustrator of cats, whom he depicted in all sorts of activities, from skating and playing cricket to driving motor cars, attending dances, and playing musical instruments. “He invented a cat style, a cat society, a whole cat world. English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves” (H.G. Wells).“From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled…although he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!” (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914).Rodney Dale only records the later Collins edition of 1919.
