      (ART OF THIS CENTURY). Guggenheim, Peggy, Andre Breton, Jean Arp & Piet Mondrian. ART OF THIS CENTURY: OBJECTS - DRAWINGS - PHOTOGRAPHS - PAINTINGS - SCULPTURE - COLLAGE 1910 TO 1942 - AN EXTRAORDINARY ASSOCIATION COPY . Signed Association Copy from the Author. New York: Art of This Century & Art Aid Corporation, 1942. First Edition 1/2500. 4to. Decorated Cloth Over Boards. Exhibition Catalog. Near Fine./No Jacket - As Issued. 160pp, profusely illustrated in b&w. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. Cover design by Max Ernst. Art of this Century was heiress and prolific contemporary art collector Peggy Guggenheim's now legendary forward-thinking New York gallery that operated from 1942 until 1947. In conjunction with its first exhibition, Guggenheim edited and published this prescient hardbound book also titled "Art of this Century" that featured a cover by her then-husband Max Ernst, original texts by Andre Breton, Jean Arp and Piet Mondrian, and works by the leading proponents of the Russian Avant-Garde, Cubism, Futurism Dada, De Stijl, Surrealism, Dynaton, and Abstraction. The artists allotted one or more reproductions - frequently with their own statements - are Constantin Brancusi, Pablo Picasso, Wassily Kandinsky, Marc Chagall, Paul Klee, Giorgio De Chirico, Piet Mondrian, Marcel Duchamp, Francis Picabia, Georges Braque, Raymond Duchamp-Villon, Robert Delaunay, Fernand Leger, Juan Gris, Alexander Archipenko, Albert Gleizes, Louis Marcoussis, Henri Laurens, Jacques Lipchitz, Jacques Villon, Amedee Ozenfant, Giacomo Balla, Gino Severini, Kasimir Malevich, El Lissitzky, Theo Van Doesburg, Georges Vantongerloo, Antoine Pevsner, Naum Gabo, Cesar Domela-Nieuwenhuis, Ben Nicholson, Vordemberge-Gildewart, Jean Helion, Alexander Calder, John Ferren, John Tunnard, Charles Howard, Jean (Hans) Arp, Max Ernst, Man Ray, Kurt Schwitters, Andre Masson, Joan Miro, Yves Tanguy, Rene Magritte. Andre Breton, Alberto Giacometti, Salvador Dali, Lawrence Vail, Henry Moore, Victor Brauner, Wolfgang Paalen, Oscar Dominguez, Leonor Fini, Paul Delvaux, Leonora Carrington, Roberto Sebastian Matta Echaurren, and Morris Hirschfield. A bright yellow, remarkably well-preserved copy of this uncommon document bearing the BOLDLY SIGNED PRESENTATION "To mrs Kate Steinitz with many thanks / Peggy Guggenheim / aug. 6. 1942" in black fountain pen on the half title page in the year of publication showing some light soiling and age-toning, mild fraying to the spine ends, and a few ghosts from removed adhesive labels on the inside covers. The front free endpaper features the embossed ownership label of the noted late Los Angeles-based artist, educator, and Surrealist collector Emerson Woelffer. Steinitz was a Hanover-based artist and journalist during the twenties who became Kurt Schwitters' close friend, collaborator, publisher and eventually his biographer. She was a serious collector of his art who later acted as Schwitters' agent both before and after his death. In 1935 she emigrated to New York, where she curated the "New Americans" exhibition at the 1939 World's Fair. Kate Steinitz is credited in the acknowledgements of "Art of This Century" with supplying some of its reproduced photographs, and is also likely the source of the three exhibited Schwitters works cited in the book. She moved to Los Angeles in 1945 to oversee the Elmer Belt library of Vinciana, which she did until her death in 1975. Her personal library was then acquired by noted local antiquarian dealer Jake Zeitlin, who supplied many rare books and prints to Woelffer - from whose library we obtained this significant tome directly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

      London: John Murray, 1910. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. 216 x 140 mm (8 1/2 x 5 1/2"). Six volumes. FIRST EDITION. EXTREMELY APPEALING CONTEMPORARY DARK BLUE THREE-QUARTER MOROCCO, GILT, raised bands, spines attractively gilt in double-ruled compartments with intricate arabesque cornerpieces, marbled sides and endpapers, top edges gilt. With 56 portraits, six political cartoons, and nine illustrations of important places in the life of Disraeli. Trivial soiling to two paper sides, leaves slightly browned at edges because of inexpensive paper, one leaf with minor printing imperfection, but AN ESPECIALLY PLEASING SET, THE DECORATIVE BINDINGS VERY LUSTROUS AND WITH VIRTUALLY NO WEAR, and the text quite clean and fresh. British prime minister, statesman, and father of the modern Conservative party, Benjamin Disraeli (1804-81) was a towering figure in 19th century Britain whose influence is difficult to overstate. Our authors had the advantage of free access to his papers and correspondence, and have carefully documented and analyzed his public life and political theories in the six substantial volumes that make up this work. Our set is given special mention by DNB, which states that "the interpretation of [Disraeli] as a man of the people, who had the insight to appreciate the merits of a policy of imperial consolidation and social reform, became widely held by Conservatives in the 1890s. It was underpinned by the conclusion to the six-volume biography of him begun by W. F. Monypenny and finished after Monypenny's death by G. E. Buckle in 1920. (However, buried in the rest of the work is a great deal of material about other aspects of Disraeli's ideas. It remains the only biography to treat those ideas with anything like the importance they deserve, in a conscious effort to answer Liberal and other criticisms of his lack of convictions.)" The prime minister's private life, however, "was sanitized by Monypenny and Buckle (in whose biography there is not even any coherent reference to [his reputed mistress] Henrietta Sykes)." The present set's appearance is little changed from its original condition, and it would make a handsome addition to any library. Because the work was issued over an 11-year period, there are more incomplete than complete sets in the marketplace, and there appears to be no six-volume set of the first editions currently being offered in decorative bindings, let alone any as attractive and well preserved as ours (ABPC lists one comparable set since 1975).

        "Die Fromme Magd," An Original Watercolor Painting for Sequel to Kling Klang Gloria

      225 x 390 mm, c. 1910. Superb watercolor illustration for a projected book of German Songs by one of the greatest Austrian illustration artists and pioneers in Jungendstil and decorative illustration of the Vienna Secession, Heinrich Lefler (1863-1919). The painting depicts an elderly woman in mourning in a church pew with two women exiting, and one is looking back to see her. Brightly painted in many colors, including bright blue stairs and floral strapwork border designs in two columns. Matted on a larger sheet, with Windsor & Newton blindstamp at lower left. Signed and titled lower right by Lefler. There are crosshatch marks for proposed reproduction, and the verses depict songs suggesting this was most probably a proposed follow-up for the famed Kling Klang Gloria which included illustrations by Lefler's brother-in-law Joseph Urban.

First Edition First Impression, Presentation Copy, with the author's signed presentation inscription facing the title page, "To Ronald Ross, from H. Rider Haggard, Ditchingham, 12 January 1911". The recipient was Haggard's friend, the Nobel laureate Sir Ronald Ross (1857–1932). Awarded the Nobel for medicine (the first Briton to be awarded one) in recognition of his groundbreaking work abroad on the prevention and containment of malaria, the Indian-born Ross spent the latter part of his career in Britain. His concerns were not merely epidemiological and Ross saw clearly that social conditions, poor housing, poverty and disease were inextricably linked, a sentiment echoed in the pages of the present book, this copy of which was presented from Haggard's home at Ditchingham in Norfolk.

Part of the set once belong to Weston College Library (the first volume being marked as "withdrawn"). The only evidence of having once been in a library: Tasteful rubber stamped college logo on the title pages of Volumes I and IV, with some stamped and pen marking (Dewey Decimal System call number), and date on the old FFEP of the same volume; the other two volumes carry on the inscription of a previous owner, also on the old FFEP.
