        Blumenstilleben.

      1912 1912 - Lithographie, 1912, auf festem chamoisfarbenem Velin, signiert und datiert. 45,4:31,9 cm. Die Darstellung besticht durch die feine zeichnerische Durchbildung der Blumen, ausgewogene Lichtinszenierung und kontrastierende Ornamentierung des Tischüberwurfes. Von der für die Künstlerin charakteristischen kubistischen Formensprache, bekannt durch ihre Stick- und Webarbeiten, ist hier nichts spürbar. Die Künstlerin studierte an der Kunstgewerbeschule Hamburg in der Klasse „Akt- und Porträtzeichnen" von E. Dülberg (1888-1933), den sie 1915 heiratete. 1919 zog das Künstlerpaar nach Ober-Hambach bei Heppenheim/Bergstraße. Dort unterrichtete sie wie ihr Mann an der Odenwaldschule. Seit 1920 war sie Mitglied der „Darmstädter Sezession" und beteiligte sich an den Ausstellungen der Gruppe. In dieser Zeit entstanden erste Bildstickereien und Webereien. 1922 Scheidung. Anschließend war sie Schülerin am Bauhaus in Weimar bei J. Itten (1888-1967), P. Klee (1879-1940) und W. Kandinsky (1866-1944). 1924 heiratete sie den am Bauhaus tätigen Goldschmied N. Slutzky (1894-1965) und im gleichen Jahr zog sie nach Wien. Auch diese Ehe wurde 1927 geschieden und sie kehrte nach Hamburg zurück. 1936 emigrierte sie nach Nizza, wurde dann über das Sammel- und Durchgangslager Drancy in das Konzentrationslager Auschwitz deportiert, wo sie ermordet wurde.

Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag ("Häubchen") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können."

        SOUTH POLE: An Account of the Norwegian Antarctic Expedition in the "Fram", 1910-1912

      London John Murray 1912 - 2 volumes. First edition. First issue. Numerous illustrations, folding maps, plans and charts, folding maps at rear of each volume. 138 photographic illustrations on 103 plates. Thick 8vo, very handsomely bound in three-quarter red morocco over maroon cloth boards, the spine with raised bands, gilt stopped and gilt ruled, gilt lettered and numbered in three compartments. xxxv, 392; 355, 357-449 pp. A very pleasing and handsome set with plates, maps and textblocks quite clean and well preserved, the bindings in excellent condition, fine, clean, sharp and beautifully preserved, light mellowing or age evidence to the half-titles. A very nice set. RARE AND IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION. Norwegian captain Roald Amundsen had initially intended make an expedition to the Arctic, but changed his plans at the last moment and announced he would try for the South Pole instead. His explanation to the public was that if he could beat the English and Japanese expeditions to the Pole then he could secure success and funds for his extensive Arctic expedition, and also "snatch the prize" for his own country. So , unbeknownst to Scott, Amundsen sailed southward in the "Fram" to the Bay of Whales that would afford his expedition both the shortest route to the Pole and a route that would not overlap with either the Japanese or the English expeditions. From start to finish, Amundsen’s expedition ran like clockwork. He carefully planned every moment of the trip, using his experience in the Arctic and his extensive knowledge of dog-teams to help him through. His team was entirely Norwegian, accustomed to a harsh and cold climate, and were excellent ski-runners. In addition, Amundsen traveled light; he brought five men and fifty dogs on his expedition so that the latter could eventually serve as food for the former. Part of what doomed Scott’s party was the fact that he favored men and ponies over dogs, bringing twelve men, eight ponies, and only twenty-six dogs. Amundsen’s party remained in excellent health and always had enough to eat from their plentiful provisions at their well-stocked supply depots. They also supplemented their food stores with a great seal hunt just before the winter, after which 120,000 lb. of fresh seal meat were added to their stores, which helped protect them against scurvy. Unlike Scott’s party, Amundsen’s party were also fortunate enough to have favorable weather conditions on their side, so that they were able to reach the Pole using their supply depots and dog sleds in just 99 days, a distance of 1860 miles, covering an astonishing average of 19 miles a day over frozen and difficult ground. Their journey was truly an extraordinary accomplishment, and Amundsen’s account of it is no less riveting. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Landschaft am Mittelländischen Meer.

      - Aquarell, über Bleistift, auf festem chamoisfarbenem Velin, links unten signiert „Brom", auf Untersatz montiert, dort nochmals signiert „Bromberger" sowie bezeichnet „Landschaft a Mittelländischen Meer". 24:29,9 cm. Die Landschaftsmalerin Dora Bromberger stammt aus einer bekannten Bremer Musiker- und Komponistenfamilie und studierte 1912 in München an der privaten Malschule von H. Groeber (1865-1935), dann 1913-1914 in Paris bei M. Denis (1870-1943) und P. Sérusier (1864-1927). 1915-1923 war die jüdischstämmige Künstlerin in München ansässig, wo sie für kurze Zeit die Malschule von H. Hofmann (1880-1966) besuchte. Möglicherweise führten finanzielle Schwierigkeiten zu ihrer Rückkehr 1924 nach Bremen, wo sie bis zu ihrer Deportation 1941 gemeinsam mit ihrer Schwester, der Pianistin Henriette Bromberger, im Haus ihres Vaters lebte und arbeitete. Reisen führten sie in die nähere Umgebung Bremens und nach Spanien. Ausstellungsbeteiligungen auch in Berlin, Nürnberg, München, u.a. an der „Münchner Secession" und auch der daraus hervorgegangenen „Neuen Münchner Secession (Neue Künstlervereinigung München)". 1933 hatte sie ihre letzte Ausstellung, dann erhielt sie durch die Nationalsozialisten Ausstellungs- und Verkaufsverbot. Drei Jahre später unternahm sie noch eine Reise nach St. Gallen – warum sie jedoch nicht in der Schweiz blieb, hat vermutlich mit familiären Gründen zu tun. 1939 erhielt sie eine Arbeit als Porzellanmalerin und damit die Möglichkeit, ihre schlechte finanzielle Lage etwas aufzubessern. Später wurde sie in das Konzentrationslager Minsk deportiert, wo sie umgebracht wurde. Das Spencer Museum of Art/Kansas besitzt von den wenigen überlieferten Arbeiten der Künstlerin ein Landschaftsaquarell, das aus dem Besitz der Ehefrau des amerikanischen Malers Albert Bloch (1882-1961) stammt, der 1908-1921 in München lebte und sich dem Künstlerkreis des „Blauen Reiter" angeschlossen hatte. Stilistisch in der Kombination aus teils kubischen Elementen mit zarten schwunghaften Verdichtungen ist unser Bild mit Landschaftsaquarellen Blochs um 1913/1916 vergleichbar, so daß zu vermuten ist, daß hier zumindest eine nähere Bekanntschaft, wenn nicht Schülerschaft bestand.

Hundreds of actors & extras took part in the rehearsals, including Gustav Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach and his wife Bertha Krupp. The play was written by Ludwig Keller specifically for the festivities. Music in the piece was composed by Hermann Abendroth, direction of the play was taken on by Reinhard Bruck. The story takes place during the reign of Maximillian I. (1459-1519). Sadly, the piece was never performed because of a nearby mine-explosion that killed 144 people at the Zeche Lothringen in Bochum. Kaiser Wilhelm II, who attended the anniversary, immediately left for Bochum to extend his condolences to the families of the deceased. Plates in various sizes, ranging from 5" x 5 1/4" to 13 3/4 x 10 3/4".

        The Cutting of an Agate

      New York: The Macmillan Company, 1912 First edition. Inscribed by Yeats on the half-title: "For wisdom is a butterfly / WB Yeats / Jan 26 / 1926". Publisher's green paper boards, white paper labels lettered in green to the front board and spine. Very good, with shallow chipping to the spine ends, light rubbing to the spine, toning to the spine and board edges, spine slightly tender inside the front cover, bright and clean interior. A pleasing copy, inscribed by the author. Wade 102. The Cutting of an Agate is Yeats' second collection of essays. In his preface, Yeats explains his title for this volume - a reference to "the art of theater," which Yeats had been preoccupied with and which, he writes, "may well seem to practical men…of no more account than the shaping of an agate." He continues that "in the shaping of an agate, whether in the cutting or the making of a design, one discovers, if one have a speculative mind, thoughts that seem important and principles that may be applied to life itself, and certainly if one does not believe so, one is but a poor cutter of so hard a stone." Specifically, The Cutting of an Agate includes "Edmund Spenser," "The J. M. Synge and the Ireland of His Time," "Discoveries," "Poetry and Tradition," "The Tragic Theatre," "John Shaw-Taylor," "Preface to the First Edition of the Well of Saints," and "Preface to the Frist Edition of John M. Synge's Poems and Translations." Additionally, this volumes contains "Thoughts on Lady Gregory's Translations," which was replaced with "Certain Noble Plays of Japan" in the first English edition published by Macmillan of London in 1919.. Inscribed by Author. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

Je voudrais bien savoir ce qui en est. Avez vous le "typescript" de ma nouvelle Freya of the Seven Islands [underlined] chez vous ? Je l'ai envoyé a la Revue "Progès'.

French was Conrad's second language (before English) and he read and wrote it wth facility and paid close attention to the translations of his published writiings. This letter is rich in allusion to many key works; and the reference to the issue of the Mercure is almost certainly to the one containing Davray's review of Under Western Eyes, the Mercure de France for Jan.-Feb. 1912 (cf. Lohf & Sheehy 1218); Davray wrote several additional pieces on Conrad's work.

A fine copy of a rare book illustrating Japanese shells in a traditional Japanese manner. "Kai Sen Shu is unique among conchological publications and is highly prized by each fortunate owner of a copy" (Dance, Shells p. 126).//Dance 150.

        Irish Home Rule, A Speech Delivered By The Right Hon. Winston Churchill, M.P. (First Lord of the Admiralty) At Belfast On February 8th, 1912

      The Liberal Publication Department, London 1912 - This item is from the personal collection of Churchill's bibliographer, Ronald I. Cohen. This is the original pamphlet publication of Churchill's controversial February 8, 1912 speech in Belfast supporting Irish Home Rule. Churchill's father, Lord Randolph, had vigorously supported the Ulster Unionists. Over time, Winston came to support Home Rule. In the fall of 1911, Home Rule moved to the fore in political debate. Churchill prepared to speak in the Ulster Hall in Belfast in favor of Home Rule - the very same hall where his father famously opposed Home Rule in 1886, declaring "Ulster will fight and Ulster will be right." This was an anticipated, significant, and controversial event. Tensions were so high that the meeting was "transferred from the Ulster Hall which lay in the strongly Protestant area to a large marquee at the Celtic Road football ground in the Catholic working-class district." History records that "Extraordinary precautions had to be taken to protect Churchill and his wife who had insisted on accompanying him. The Manchester Guardian reported that the railway line from Larne, where the Churchills landed in Ireland, to Belfast was patrolled by police to prevent sabotage." The Churchills' greeting was anything but friendly. "A hostile crowd of nearly 10,000 greeted them outside the Grand Central Hotel in Belfast, where they were staying." Of the drive from the hotel to Celtic Road, The Times reported "As each car made its way through, men thrust their heads in and uttered fearful menaces and imprecations." The Manchester Guardian reported that "the back wheels of the Churchills' car were lifted eighteen inches off the ground by the angry crowd before the police beat them off." (Gilbert, Volume II, pages 466-7) Churchill addressed a crowd of 5,000 Irish Nationalists, saying: We look forward to a time. when the harsh and lamentable cry of reproach which so long jarred upon the concert of Empire will die away, when the accursed machinery, by which the hatred manufactured and preserved will be broken forever." Remembering his experience in South Africa and in marked contrast to his father's inflammatory rhetoric, Churchill said, "We have made friends with our enemies - can we not make friends with our comrades too?" The Home Rule crisis of 1912-1914 was sidelined by the outbreak of World War I. Nonetheless, Churchill would ultimately introduce the Irish Free State Bill, which won passage in 1922. This publication of Churchill's speech is a 16-page wire stitched pamphlet in paper covers, published by The Liberal Publication Department. Per Cohen (Volume I, A35.1, p.186), the number "14" hand-stamped on the upper right corner of this pamphlet indicates that this pamphlet was disbound from the collected "Pamphlets and Leaflets for 1912" issued by the Liberal Publications Department. This accounts for the well-preserved condition. This copy remains crisp and clean apart from a few trivial blemishes to the front cover and faint discoloration to the bottom of the pamphlet throughout to a maximum depth of .25 inch. The covers remain firmly attached, with a one-inch split to the lower spine. The pamphlet is protected in a removable, archival quality mylar sleeve.

Cartier copy, inscribed to him by De Ricci, which sold three times (Swann, Apr. 28, 2005, $1500 + buyer's premium; Swann, Sept. 29, 1988, lot 77; Sotheby's, Dec. 11, 1984, lot 339) and the Hirsch copy in poor condition (sold Adler, Paris, June 13, 1978, lot 299). Ours is the Martin Breslauer - B.H. Breslauer copy which contains two signed letters from Seymour de Ricci to H. Eisemann, likewise a bookseller, based in Zurich and later in London. * As is well known, "Cohen-De Ricci" is the still-indispensible bibliography of 18th-century French illustrated books, continuously in print for 100 years, and remains the ne-plus-ultra of its genre.

Gilt is bright, bindings are rock solid. There are a couple of trivial nicks and that's it for wear. Easily the nicest set of Boehme I have seen.

      Tuskegee: Booker T. Washington, 1912. 1st Edition. No binding. Very Good. [Tuskegee, 15 May 1912.] Letter by Booker T. Washington with his signature, requesting a contribution of tools for the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, addressed to Mr. J. T. McCready, a manufacturer in Ohio. 8vo.

Very good condition. Together with relative ephemera from the period. Original letter from Booker T. Washington, Principal of the Tuskegeee Institute for African Americans, and leading Black rights activist, signed in his hand, only three years prior to his death."We are in need of tools and implements - also for use on our farms... such as you distribute or manufacture... We have nearly sixteen hundred students here. They pay their own board and other personal expenses, but they are not able to pay the cost of teaching or the cost of equipping... Any help... we shall be glad to receive."Four ephemeral items accompany Washington's letter. Of particular rarity is a commemorative envelope for opening of the 'Booker T Washington Birthplace Post Office' in 1948, which bears the original signature of his daughter, Portia Washington Pittman, and a rare 3 cent postage First Day Cover (FDC) stamp of George Washington Carver, who taught for forty-seven years at the Tuskegee Institute and was born into slavery.

In addition to the envelope, two ephemeral prospectus leafs promote the Booker T. Washington Memorial Half Dollar, a legal tender minted in 1915, post mortem in honour of his legacy. The coin read 'From Slave Cabin to Hall of Fame.' Both leafs printed in Virginia, for the 'Booker T. Washington Birthplace Memorial Commission' whose president was S. J. Phillips. Finally, a single-leaf pamphlet, printed in conjunction with the latter two items, comprises the Atlanta Exposition Address delivered by Booker T. Washington in Atlanta in 1895.Booker T. Washington (1856-1915) was born a slave on the tobacco plantation of James Burroughs in Franklin Country, Virginia. His father was an unknown white man and his mother, the slave of James Burroughs. Washington was an educator, author, orator, advisor to Republican presidents. From 1890 to 1915 he was the dominant leader in the African-American community. After the Civil War, he founded the Tuskegee School.

        Collection of Four Autograph Letters, Signed ("Leonard West"), to R.B. Marston, editor of the Fishing Gazette, August to December 1912, concerning printing and publishing The Natural Trout Fly and Its Imitation, and preparation of the deluxe copies

      Ravenhead, St. Helens (England): Published by the Author, 1912. Pen and ink on paper. 15 pp. total. 1 vols. 12mo. Green buckram portfolio. Letters generally fine. Book: original olive cloth, a trifle worn, spine faded, else fine. West to Marston on producing and selling The Natural Trout Fly Fascinating clutch of letters from Leonard West discussing the production and early sales of The Natural Trout Fly and Its Imitation, now recognized as one of the classic works of pre-war English angling literature, with information on the deluxe edition containing hand-tied flies. The recipient, R.B. Marston, author of Walton and the Earlier Angler Authors and the 1901 Supplement to the Bibliotheca Piscatoria, was the influential editor of the Fishing Gazette for many years. - The first letter (3 pp.) is dated 14 August 1912, and begins, "Herewith I have the pleasure in enclosing review copy of my book 'The Natural Trout Fly & Its Imitation' & hope you will find the volume worthy of a favorable review ... I think the printers deserve a good word for the way they have turned out the plates ..." (Docketed with a note in Marston's hand "See my note in FG Aug. 24 1912 RBM.") - The second letter, dated 23 August, thanks Marston for a "very handsome" Note in the Fishing Gazette (see clipping inserted in the book) and discusses other early notices: "The 'Scotsman' gives me a good word, shot but quite O.K.. The Sporting & Dramatic 'have given instructions for it to be well reviewed & request permission to reproduce one of the plates' That for an outsider seems going it pretty strong - does it not? ... I have unloaded 100 up to now & sent for more." West also details progress on the edition de luxe "My leisure at present is occupied in dressing flies & trying to get others up to concert pitch ... I have booked 19 E. de luxe" - The third letter (2 pp.), dated 21 October, notes that West is sending Marston "the edition de luxe of my book & hope you will like the get up & also the flies therein. The demand has been much greater than the supply so there will be little difficulty in disposing of a copy if desired at a premium. Other copies should all be sent out in the next fortnight ... The ordinary edition is quietly going out all the time & hosts of appreciative letters are received not only from English customers but from France & America, also." (Docketed see F.G. note Oct. 26/12). - the fourth letter (4 pp.), dated 12 December 1912, discusses sales of the book: "Sales are moving all the time, lowest number sent off in any week being 10 & the average being 31.76 per week. I do no know if a "proper" publisher would consider this satisfactory but possibly he might not talk to his customers in the blunt way I do to some of mine!" West also discusses two flies, Orange Partridge and Snipe & Purple: "but what is a snipe & purple? It is over thirty years since old Joe Moses, a well known North country catcher of fish shewed me how to make it ... but not dressed as now sold, but thusly [details & sketch follow] keep it thin both in body thorax & legs." West adds a note at the top "P.S. What about the Hon. D. Fearing? - his copy - of the Ed. de luxe" With a copy of the printed book (Marston's Occasional Note, "Send Your Money!" from the Fishing Gazette for 24 August 1912, clipped and tipped in to front pastedown). Choice group of letters with substantial content and an important association.
