        Futurism : an archive

      A collection of key manifestos and other ephemeral publications from Futurism's most vital period, 1910-1913.   The Italian poet Marinetti published his Manifesto del Futurismo in 1909. Above all, his philosophy called for a rejection of the past and a celebration of change; Futurism was the promoter of urban modernity and the power of the machine, as well as the champion of anarchy and violence. Although Paris quickly became the physical centre of Futurist artistic activity, "Poesia" - the magazine which Marinetti had founded in Milan in 1905 - was the real nexus of Futurism and served as Marinetti's Futurist propaganda machine (the magazine even described itself as the "Moteur du Futurisme", or the "Engine of Futurism"). It was in Milan that most Futurist literature, including manifestos, notices and invitations to Futurist events in Italy and France, was printed and then disseminated, via the Italian postal service, across Europe. An interesting aspect of the present archive is that it includes two Futurist broadsides in their original "Poesia" postal envelopes, both addressed to the young Parisian poet Gaston Picard (1892-1962), co-editor of the short-lived magazine for experimental writing L'œil de veau (The Calf's eye), of which only four numbers were published in 1912. The archive is comprised of the following: Manifeste des Peintres Futuristes. Milano : "Poesia", 1910. Quarto, pp. 4, light central crease. One of the foundation manifestos of the Futurist movement, authored by the Italian artists Umberto Boccioni, Carlo Carrà and Luigi Russolo (all based in Milan), and Giacomo Balla and Gino Severini (who had both moved to Paris from Rome in 1906). These artists were all strongly influenced by Symbolism. The manifesto, principally edited by Boccioni, was issued as a broadsheet on 11 April and was subsequently published in Cœmedia on 18 May. One of its declarations is that "... notre art est ivre de spontanéité et de puissance" ("... our art is drunk on spontaneity and power"). Les poètes et les peintres futuristes livrent bataille dans les grands théâtres italiens. Milano : Poligrafia italiana, [1910]. Quarto, pp. 4, light central crease. Circulated letter, edited by Marinetti, addressed to the press by the editors of "Poesia", containing information about the recent "happenings" organised by the Futurists in Trieste, Milan and Turin and the reactions they have provoked. Discours futuriste aux Vénitiens. Milano : "Poesia", [1910]. Quarto, pp. 4, light central crease. Manifesto by Marinetti which forms part of his continuing polemic against Venice, a city he regarded as chained to the past and blind to the future. It also foreshadows his affinities with Mussolini's Fascism: "... we prepare a great, strong, industrial, commercial, and military Venice that must defy Austrian insolence on the Adriatic, our great Italian lake." The Futurists used the term "passatism" to describe the adherence to and privileging of outmoded principles by other artists and thinkers. For Marinetti, the city of Venice was the embodiment of passatism in the geopolitical realm. Venise futuriste. Milano : F. T. Marinetti, [1910]. Printed broadside, 438 mm tall, folded as issued, pristine condition; in original orange printed envelope of Marinetti's "Poesia" magazine, sent from Milan and addressed to M. Gaston Picard, 11 Bd. St. Michel, Paris. Manifesto repudiating the classical art of Venice and announcing the arrival of the Futurists. Mafarka le Futuriste glorifié par Rachilde dans le Mercure de France. Milano : Poligrafia italiana, 1910. Printed broadside, 420 mm tall; folded as issued, fine condition; in original orange printed envelope of Marinetti's "Poesia" magazine, sent from Milan and addressed to M. Gaston Picard, 11 Bd. St. Michel, Paris (address crossed out and re-addressed to Ille-et-Vilaine). Reproduction of an article on Marinetti's chaotic, violent novel Mafarka le Futuriste, published in the Mercure de France on 1 July 1910, in which Rachilde (the pen name of the decadent Symbolist Marguerite Vallette-Eymery) wrote: "... toqués pour toqués, je préfère ceux qui m'amusent à ceux qui me rasent." Mafarka le Futuriste devant les Juges. Milano : Poligrafia italiana, [1910]. Quarto, pp. 4, light central crease. An announcement circulated by the editors of "Poesia", intended for publication in the press by sympathetic French colleagues, regarding the charges of obscenity against Marinetti which had arisen from the (subsequently suppressed) Italian translation of Mafarka le Futuriste. ... Grande Exposition du peintre futuriste Umberto Boccioni. Milano : Poligrafia italiana, [1910]. Printed broadside, 290 mm tall, folded as issued, fine condition. Exhibition flyer announcing an exhibition of works by Umberto Boccioni to be exhibited in Venice following its successful showing in Milan. Les peintres futuristes Italiens. Boccioni, Carrà, Russolo, Balla, Severini. Exposition du lundi 5 au samedi 24 fevrier 1912. Paris : Mm. Bernheim-Jeune & Cie, 1912. Duodecimo, printed orange wrappers, pp. [ii]; 32; [2]; pristine condition. Illustrated catalogue, which includes the text of Manifeste des Peintres Futuristes (1910). Galerie la Boëtie, Paris. Première exposition de sculpture futuriste du peintre et sculpteur futuriste Boccioni. Du 20 juin au 16 juillet 1913. Milano : A. Taveggia, 1913. Folding card, 120 x 145 mm (folded), printed in blue on apricot; pristine condition. The card is an invitation and "carte permanente" for the first exhibition of sculptures by significant Futurist artist Umberto Boccioni. It also advertises two "Conférences Contradictoires" to take place at Galerie la Boëtie, the first on 22 June by the poet Marinetti on the topic "l'imagination sans fils et les mots en liberté", and the second on 27 June by Boccioni on Futurist sculpture. L'art des bruits. Manifeste futuriste. Milano : Direction du Mouvement futuriste, 1913. Quarto, pp. 4, light central crease, short edge tears. Also known as L'arte dei rumori (The Art of Noise), this famous manifesto by Luigi Russolo is considered one of the most important documents in the history of music in the twentieth century (just ask Paul Morley). The influence of Russolo's Musique bruitiste was more far-reaching than that of any other branch of Futurism, perhaps because a painting in a frame is not as well suited to the expression of anarchy and violence in the same visceral way that sound is. It liberated musicians from the constraints of traditional styles, forms and instrumentation, and its concept is fundamental to the aesthetic of improvisation, Musique concrète, and electronic music. Premier concert de bruiteurs futuristes. Milano : A. Taveggia, S. Margherita, [1913]. Printed broadside, 390 mm tall, folded as issued, fine condition. Review of the first concert of Musique bruitiste. Featuring Futurist noise instruments, it took place in the Teatro Storchi, Modena, on 2 June 1913, under the direction of Luigi Russolo himself. Gelatin silver print photograph of Marinetti in Italian military uniform, probably taken soon after his enlistment in mid 1915; 140 x 60 mm (sheet 180 x 120 mm); although the print is a cropped version of a larger photograph, it is contemporary with the original.

        An archive, as below

      Virginia artist Rudy Wendelin (1910-2000) joined the U.S. Forest Service in the early 1930s and helped launch the Smokey the Bear campaign in the late 1930s - now the lonest running public service campaign in U.S. history. He portrayed Smokey in literally hundreds of promotional pieces which encouraged conservation of natural resources, and forest fire prevention. This collection consists of pirmary sketches from Wendelin's personal collection. These are drafts retained by Wendelin himself -- working copies that show the creative process in action, in which the realistic cub bear drawings evolved into the human-like figure in blue jeans that the public came to know and love. There are 46 original pencil draft drawings in varying sizes ranging from approximately 6" x 8½" to 11" x 12" and featuring multiple sketches or panels of Smokey in different firefighting activites complete with captions. Some tell a story, comic strip style, while others are single images. Condition ranges from very good to near fine. Included are two pencil drawings of the actual Smokey cub, detailed and realistic -- quite possibly the first drawings of Smokey accomplished by Wendelin. There is also a heavy stock glossy 8" x 10" black and white photograph showing baby Smokey in 1950 being flown from Santa Few, New Mexico, where New Mexico Department of Game and Fish Ranger Ray Bell and his family were nursing him back to thealth, to the National Zoo in Washington, DC. There is also a remarkable 5-page autograph letter signed from Wendelin, 8½" x 11", on yellow ruled paper, dated March 15, 1997. He titles the first page "Reflection on visit of Tim Beatty, F[orest] S[ervice] - Symbols Director." Second and third pages are titled, "A lesson for every camper," and consist of the tale of a family camping and coming upon an old forest fire site. The fourth and fifth pages consist of forest fire ruminations, each paragraph beginning with "Only... green, healthy forests and woodlands can" - followed by various observations, concluding with "Smokey's message of forest fire prevention is never out of date." Accompanied by a 2-page original typescript by Wendelin, unsigned, titled "Reflections by Rudolph Wendelin for the Hot Food Teddy Convention, Capitan, NM - July,1999" and containing further provocative comments. An extraordinary letter, never published. There is also a second autograph letter signed from Wendelin, 1p, 6" x 8½", 17 March 1995 discussing various Smokey Bear projects and products. Mentions, "Enclosed is a copy of rough draft - comments & reflections on latest ... from what's happening, we are apparently not on the best standing with the S[mokey] B[ear] office." Enclosure is present, a 13-page detailed type commentary on issues and disputes regarding the licensing of Smokey Bear products. Accompanied by A Walk in the Woods, a mockup of a 1995 book that was apparently never published, and features text by Janet Doe and illustrations by Wendelin. 12" x 8½", ca. 16 pages. Some pages consist of color photocopies of Wendelin watercolors, with text portions blocked out, while several pages consist of original Wendelin pencil sketches of Smokey in wilderness setting and caoptions with text areas blocked out. Four pages at conclusion consist of original Wendelin pastel and ink drawings showing Smokey finding shelter for cubs and a deer during a forest fire - quite striking and beautiful. This mockup is accompanied by a thick sheaf of photocopies and color snapshots of these and other mockup leaves. Also included are a few commemorative items such as a First Day Cover honoring the 1984 issuance of the 20-cent "Smokey" stamp with ornamental cachet (signed by Wendelin) as well as FDCs bearing the "John Muir Conservationist" 5-cent stamp and "Forest Conservation" 4-cent stamp with "Happy Birthday, Smokey!" commemorative cachet at left, each signed by Wendelin. Also a color postcard, 6" x 4", of Wendelin's 1989 painting, "Dear Smokey..." showing Smokey retrieving fan mail from his mailbox as two playful cubs climb over the mailbox, signed by Wendelin at lower left, and "A tribute to Rudolph Wendelin: artist and guardian of Smokey Bear," a heavy card stock 8½" x 5½" ten-page booklet issued in 1995, signed and inscribed by Wendelin on front cover. An extraordinary archive chronicling the development of this iconic and beloved public relations character who became an important symbol in the environmental movement.

Less famously, Wodehouse had dedicated this book to his friend Herbert Westbrook sixteen years previously, using exactly the same joke. An unusually nice copy, the gilt on the spine still bright.

        [ZEPPELIN] Das lenkbare Luftschiff : ein aktuelles Gesellschaft-Spiel

      [Berlin : Sala, c. 1910]. Box of thick card, 410 x 310 x 35 mm, the lid with chromolithographed illustration of an airship and game title in German; containing a chromolithographed playing board, 580 x 790 mm, folding to 290 x 395 mm; 6 painted pewter playing pieces in the form of airships, each approximately 50 x 55 mm, the bases mounted into slits on lithographed card for safe storage, 210 x 150 mm; 6 numbered playing cards, each 67 x 43 mm and denoting the airship owned by each player; 2 dice, one numbered 1 to 6, the other with 6 differently coloured faces, with original gauze bag; 95 circular pieces of embossed card (play money representing coins of various denominations), with original cotton pouch; printed leaflet in Dutch (De bestuurbare Luchtballon), 4 pages folding to 200 x 90 mm; on a section of the back of the playing board a sheet from a 1970s German game has been laid down at some point, but this is not visible when the board is opened, nor when it is folded; otherwise, the game is original, complete and in fine condition. This beautiful children's game of commercial aviation in the age of the early Zeppelin airships was produced in Germany by the famous firm of Sala around 1910. It is a roll-and-move race game that features various hazards and disasters, including the most notorious one for the Zeppelins - fire. A number of different language versions, including Dutch, English, Swedish and Hungarian, are known. Rules leaflets would have been interchangeable for each edition: the Dutch rules leaflet that accompanies the present example is of the period, and was in all likelihood used by the original Dutch owner of the game, even though the box and playing board are printed in German.

        [Photo Album]: Garden Island, Sydney. The Base of the Royal Australian Navy. 1910-1914

      Sydney. 1910-1914. Folio. Gray and blue cloth boards with "Sunny Memories" on the front board, and 12 stiff card leaves. 125 gelatin silver images mostly approximately 3" x 4", mounted within rectangular or oval frames in the book. All photos with captions or titles on the mounts. A faint spot on the front board, but a very good or better internally clean album with bright about fine images.A very interesting photo album from the family of a high ranking Australian naval officer who resided at Garden Island, base of the Royal Australian Navy in Sydney (now a restricted area). The images include views of Garden Island: streets, the embankment with HMS Pegasus, Signal Hill on the Coronation Day, the interior of the island church, "Idol from Mallo Kollo Island" (Malakula, Vanuatu), "the tree planted by H.M. The King," "swimming bath," and others. Additionally there are a series of views depicting the Garden Island Tennis Club which is considered to be Australia's first lawn tennis court (built in 1880), showing the court itself and tennis court pavilion, group portraits of players shown during games or afterwards, posing with rackets.The album's owner or compiler (here designated as "H.C.") is in several photos, posing in naval uniform in his garden, on board HMS Encounter and on board a naval ship at the beginning of WWI (the last photo is dated November 1914). There are also portraits of (probably) his wife "Ad" and other naval officers and sailors, some designated by last names (Gosling, Baker, S.P.O. Trevin); views of their house and garden on Garden Island (the exterior, interiors of the drawing room and office, images of the front and kitchen gardens). Six interesting group portraits showing "Japanese officers at Garden Island" posing in white uniforms with "Ad" and another lady at the tennis club.Five photos depict the "Tresco" mansion -- the official residence of the Naval Officer-in-Command at Garden Island (the exterior and interiors, "swimming bath", a view of the Sydney harbor from Tresco). Three photos show the Bristol biplane in Sydney with the following commentary: "one of two sent arrived Dec. 1910, flew Perth, then Melbourne, then Sydney, c. Feb. 1911." There are also images of numerous ships in Sydney harbor (HMS Fantome, HMS Cambrian, HMS Powerful, HMS Encounter, P&O S.S. Moldavia, HMS Pioneer et al.), Sydney botanical gardens, a series of photos from a trip to the Blue Mountains (Grand Canyon, Grose Valley, Kanimbla Valley, Hydro Majestic Hotel in Medlow Bath, and others). Several photos reveal the album compiler's keenness for golf (images of the Blackheath golf links, the Royal Melbourne golf club and the Royal Sydney Gold club). Overall a very interesting illustration of the social life of Australian naval officers on Garden Island on the threshold of the First World War."Garden Island, located in Sydney Harbour to the east of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Circular Quay, has been associated with the defence of Sydney and eventually Australia, since the first fleet of convicts arrived in 1788. Garden Island is thus named because it was here that the crew of HMS Sirius of the First Fleet planted a vegetable garden in late January 1788. Garden Island has had connections with the Navy since the early days of the colony. As well as a garden, it housed a gun emplacement which guarded the passageway between Farm Cove and Pinchgut (Fort Denison) until the construction of Fort Macquarie on Bennelong Point. A similar gun pit was built on Gov. Macquarie's Point, but this was removed after Fort Macquarie was built and no trace of it remains today. In 1811 Gov. Macquarie declared Garden Island a civilian establishment and thus it stayed until 1856 when it was returned to the Royal Navy for use as a base. The base grew in a ramshackle manner with new buildings and facilities being added progressively over the next century. Today it is a restricted area and houses the Fleet Base of the Royal Australian Navy and the Garden Island Dockyard" (Garden Island/ fascinating and historically significant album. .

        Duplicate Parts for Traction Engines, Road Rollers, and Traction Wagons Catalogue

      Published in House by John Fowler & Co. Ltd., Steam Plough Works, Leeds June 1910. 1910., 1910. Publisher's original plain russet card wrap covers [soft back] secured with a cord tie. Landscape format 11'' x 15''. Contains 32 pages of text with 27 plates of exploded monochrome illustrations with detailed part numbers, and where necessary, further description. Not in the best of condition although we have had it professionally and sympathetically repaired. Old damp stain to the inside margin and with small losses of paper where the cord tie comes through the paper, repaired tears to the edges of the covers. John Fowler was an agricultural engineer and inventor who was born in Wiltshire. He worked on the mechanization of agriculture and was credited with the invention of steam driven ploughing engines. He died 4 December 1864, following a hunting accident. After his death, John Fowler & Co., was then continued by Robert Fowler and Robert Eddison. In 1886 the limited company of John Fowler & Co., (Leeds) Ltd., was formed. It merged with Marshall, Sons & Co., Ltd., of Gainsborough in 1947 to form Marshall-Fowler Ltd. Although not well known for them, Fowler also built a small number (117 has been claimed) of steam wagons. These were vertical-boilered, with an unusual single-crank cross-compound vee-twin engine. At least one was preserved, as part of the Tom Varley collection. During the Second World War, the Hunslet factory also produced Matilda, Cromwell, and Centaur tanks for the Army. Production finally ceased in early 1974. Member of the P.B.F.A.

        Bilderbuch: Der Kampf mit dem Drachen

      - Original fairy tale with disarming naive watercolors that thoroughly illustrate the tale. N.d., circa 1910. Oblong 8vo. 19 by 28.5 cm. 11 leaves of heavy card, each with a mounted watercolor illustration on the verso, and mounted text page, in verse surrounded by Jugenstil line decorations, on the facing rectos. The watercolors all cover every inch of their boards, and this imparts a rich lushness seldom encountered in such juvenile efforts. The narrative is about a dwarf named Pumpel who lives in a mushroom hut. Because he is bored, he decides to venture out into the world on a snail-driven cart. Hungry and thirsty, he comes upon an inn run by a landlady frog Unke. At dinner, in the company of other frogs, he hears the tale of an evil dragon who has imprisoned for years a beautiful flower fairy. It is then resolved that they will set out to fight the monster and liberate the fairy. The bees sting the monster and the frogs splash water on him until he finally retreats. The princess Pumpelione wakes up, she and Pumpel are wed, and they live happily ever after. Edges and corners have wear. The binding is in a painted style prevalent around 1920. Occasional staining on text pages. - [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Photo Album]: Mediterranean Boat Journey and Archeological Dig

      Egypt, Turkey, Greece, Italy. 1910. Oblong folio. Black leather over paper boards with "photographs" stamped in gilt on the front cover, measuring 11" x 13". An assortment of 255 sepia toned photographs affixed to stiff black paper measuring approximately 3" x 5" to 6" x 8". A few photographs are lacking and there are tears on the spine thus very good with near fine photographs.Assembled collection of photographs chronicling the travels of a group of people around Europe and its surrounding areas before arriving at an archeological dig in Turkey during 1910 led by Princeton University professor, Howard Crosby Butler. The beginning of the album shows crew members posing about the boat, in and out of uniform, including serving girls, the chef, the captain, and various officers. They stopped at numerous Mediterranean ports beginning with Gibraltar, its famous limestone mass seen here from the boat deck. The company toured Egypt on camel back with photos of the sphinx and the great pyramids seen here as well as the ancient structures of Greece's Parthenon and the Roman Coliseum.The second half of the album documents the company aiding in an archeological dig in Turkey with Turkish locals as well as American men in fedoras or pith helmets overseeing the work and laying down rails to move equipment. One photo of a man on a rock waving his helmet above his head is almost certainly Princeton University archeologist, Howard Crosby Butler. Butler was hired by the Turkish government to aid in the find at ancient Sardis, one of the most important cities of the Persian Empire. Photos of two pillars on a hillside reveal that one of the sights is the unearthing of the Temple of Artemis which began in 1910 and was the first large scale dig at the sight. "The site of the Sardis civilization--older than the Syrian--were much deeper than previous digs. Butler was able to successfully excavate these ruins between 1910 and 1922." The photos show individual portraits of the men on the dig posing with equipment, local children and animals, and numerous shots of the dig sight. A wonderful album depicting turn of the century Mediterranean discovery. .
