        Méditations esthétiques. Les Peintres cubistes

      Edition on current paper despite a second edition statement.Precious autograph signed by Guillaume Apollinaire: "At Lucien Rolmer, the cantor, the psychologist, his friend."Illustrated book of 46 portraits and art reproductions Georges Braque, Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris, Francis Picabia, Marcel Duchamp ...At the beginning of the century, cubism advocates boil down to a handful of criticism Apollinaire is one of the main representatives.Apollinaire and multiplies positions through his columns and prefaces including the catalog of the exhibition of the Circle of modern art in Le Havre, entitled The Three Virtues plastic, it gets in the introduction aesthetic Meditations.Unbeknownst poet, publisher Eugene Figuière highlights the subtitle "cubist painters." This timely change will determine the acceptance of the work. So instead of a simple "meditation", the text acquires, for readers, the status of true manifesto of Cubism and raises as such sometimes violent reactions (even more from the avant-garde circles as opponents natural to modern painting). But it becomes, at the same time, one of the first writings of importance on cubism, "defining the specific characteristics of the new art movement: the" climate "spiritual, ambitions, its historical necessity" and its international reach. Since its release, the book is commented favorably in Germany, Sweden, Italy, reflected in part in Russian and English, with Picabia, broadcast across the Atlantic Brentano's. A month later, Apollinaire was published Alcohols, frontispiece with a cubist portrait of the author by Picasso.Great friend of Apollinaire, the poet Lucien Rolmer, a month his eldest, did not follow the same route as its bohemian aesthetic companion.On the classic expression, Rolmer is probably less sensitive than the future poet of alcohol and Calligrammes to new artistic forms that defends Apollinaire. However the two poets share a common aesthetic ambition, looking for a new creative breath. In the name of this quest for what he calls "Grace" that Rolmer founded a literary school and a magazine, "Flora, Journal of Grace in the Letters and Art".Apollinaire, meanwhile, seeking a more radical expression that is particularly Cubism and primitive art. Thus he addresses the "champion" of Through these aesthetic Meditations on works including "plastic virtues: purity, unity and maintain the truth under their feet nature floored. ". In doing so, he implicitly questions the "psychologist" this new term "is not an imitative art, but an art design that tends to rise to the creation." The previous year already, he initiated his friend to the Negro Art by inviting him to feed his "graceful art" of the contemplation of a large metal statue Dahomey representing the god of war, "the art object most unexpected and the most gracious there to Paris. "Strange omen of their common tragic fate, since this is the War, they knew yet describe the absurd beauty, who likewise took the two poets. In May 1916, rejecting his surrender, Lucien Rolmer, simple soldier, was executed with a bullet to the head. Two months before, Lieutenant Kostrowitzky was hit by shrapnel in the skull to which the "poet murdered" survived only a short time.Precious and moving dedication of a poet to another, in the heart of artistic and intellectual ferment of the Roaring Twenties.

        Gennem Wahhabiternes Land paa Kamelryg. Beretning om den af det Kongelige Danske Geografiske Selskab planlagte og bekosterde forskningsrejse i Ost- og Centralarabien 1912.

      Copenhagen, Gyldendalske boghandel, Nordisk forlag, 1913. - (4), 304 pp. With a frontispiece showing the author in Arab garb, 88 illustrations in text, most of them reproductions of drawings and photographs by the author, and a folding map loosely inserted in a pocket at the end.Publisher's green cloth. 8vo. First and only edition, in the original Danish, of an account of a journey through the Arabian peninsula. Sponsored by the Royal Danish Geographical Society, Barclay Raunkiaer (1889-1915) set out to penetrate the hitherto unexplored deserts of south-east Arabia. Although the traveler came equipped with a modest amount of scientific instruments and a camera, the use of these became almost impossible. The foreigner was looked on with suspicion by the Arabs and Raunkiaer could only use his camera, with great risk, at certain unwatched moments (p. 12). At the beginning of 1912, the traveler reached Kuwait, where he stayed at the palace of Sheikh Mubarak. Since it was Mubarak's policy to keep Kuwait free of foreign interference, it took some active lobbying of the British envoy to convince the Kuwaitis that Runkiaer was a harmless traveller. After that, it seems that the Dane enjoyed a certain amount of freedom, as numerous photographs, including one of pearl-fishers and a portrait of Sheikh Mohammed, testify. Raunkiaer was very impressed by the volume of trade in Kuwait, which he considered to be the most important trading town on the east coast of Arabia. - In Kuwait, Raunkiaer became seriously ill, but his tuberculosis was undiagnosed. After a period of rest, he travelled further to Riyadh. As the first western traveller in the city in half a century, Raunkiaer was graciously received by Ibn Saud. After a short stay in Riyadh, Raunkiaer followed a caravan which mostly consisted of 150 pearl-fishers bound for Bahrain. During a stay in Hofuf, where the book ends, Raunkiaer's health became worse and he sailed to Bahrain to recuperate. From there he travelled back to Copenhagen via Bombay. After a few years working for the East Asiatic Company, Raunkiaer died from tuberculosis. - Shortly after the appearance of the Danish edition, the book was translated into German. T. E Lawrence, who considered it to be one of the "readable Arabian books", helped facilitate an English translation in 1916, which was privately printed by the Arab bureau in Cairo. - Inscribed by the author to the Danish historian of religion Ditlef Nielsen (1874-1949), with and a few annotations in pencil in the final chapter. Binding slightly worn along the edges, with a small stain on the title. Endpapers foxed with the text browned; some small random pen marks at the lower margin of p. 47. The map with a few tears along the folds, most of them expertly repaired; a very good copy. Facey, Kuwait by the first photographers, pp. 50-51; "Mr. Raunkiaer's expedition in east-central Arabia", The geographical journal XL (1912), pp. 331-332; "Danish expedition to Arabia", The geographical journal XLIV (1914), pp. 85-86; not in Howgego.

        Das Verwaltungsgebäude des Norddeutschen Lloyd in Bremen: erbaut in den Jahren 1901-1910

      Bremen: H. M. Hauschild, 1913. First edition. Softcover. vg. Folio (13 1/2 x 9 3/4"). 48pp (Text), [6] leaves (Plates). Original stiff wrappers, with white lettering to front cover. Frontispiece. Title and text pages within decorative frame. Decorative initials.Illustrated throughout with 17 full-page photographic plates reproduced in photogravure, 25 in-text b/w photographic reproductions, and 6 full-page plates at rear (one architectural drawing, and five floor plans), this work is a detailed architectural monograph on the construction of the Norddeutscher Lloyd Headquarters in Bremen.Built between 1901 and 1910 by Johann Georg Poppe (1837-1915), a prominent architect in Bremen during the German Gründerzeit and an influential interior designer of ocean liners for Norddeutscher Lloyd, the 'Norddeutscher Lloyd Headquarters' occupied almost an entire quarter of the city after its completion. With the cornerstone of the final phase being laid in 1907 to celebrate the company's fiftieth anniversary, the Renaissance revival building was the largest in the city, with large gables and a bottle-shaped tower 75 metres tall. Covered in sandstone reliefs inside and out, it resembled a castle. The project coincided with an economic downturn and its costs caused problems for the company, but the building was finished on time. It was severely damaged in an air raid in October 1944; after the war the company was restarted in the cellar. The tower and gables were removed in 1953 and for a while a bierkeller operated in the cellar. In 1968 it was sold to Horten AG, who demolished it the next year to build a department store.Wrappers slightly discolored along spine and at upper margin of back cover. Minor foxing to the first and last couple of leaves. Text in German. Wrappers in overall good+ to very good, interior in very good condition.

        Daphnis & Chloe

      1913. Signed. RAVEL, Maurice. Daphnis & Chloé. Ballet en un Acte. Fragments Symphoniques 2e Série. Lever du Jour-Pantomime-Danse Générale. Paris: Durand, (1913). Folio, original printed paper boards. $3500.Association copy of the full score of one of the two orchestral versions of Ravel’s ballet, often considered his greatest work, inscribed by noted conductor Charles Munch on the front pastedown: “En Souvenir a mon premiere concert a Denver. le 7 Nov. 48. Charles Munch.”Charles Munch (1891-1968), who has inscribed this copy, was one of the greatest conductors of his generation and a friend and colleague of Ravel. He is perhaps best known for his work on French composers, particularly Ravel: he in fact recorded Daphnis & Chloé twice, both times with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, which he led from 1948 to 1962. (Those recordings are today still considered the standard against which all subsequent ones are measured.) He has inscribed this copy to conductor Antonia Brico, perhaps the most celebrated female conductor of the twentieth century. A native of the Netherlands, Brico grew up in the United States and studied conducting both here and abroad. Her talent was immediately recognized; while still in her twenties, she became a popular conductor, working with the Berlin Philharmonic, the Los Angeles and San Francisco Symphonies, and the New York Philharmonic, among others, routinely being the first woman conductor an orchestra worked with. After working in New York throughout the thirties, she settled in Denver in 1940, where she became conductor of the Denver Community Orchestra. In 1974, Judy Collins, Brico’s most famous student, made a widely seen documentary on Brico (Antonia: Portrait of a Woman) that produced many new invitations to conduct, at places such as Lincoln Center and the Kennedy Center. In this copy Brico has written a list of conductors, orchestras, times and places, presumably times she heard Daphnis & Chloé performed. All of the performances are in New York up to 1938; the last two listed are Ormandy with Philadelphia in Denver in 1946 and Munch with the National Orchestra de France in Denver on November 7, 1948, the date of the inscription.Front hinge starting, but interior otherwise fine. Light edgewear to original boards, a bit of discoloration to rear board. A near-fine copy with a wonderful provenance.

        Diary and Photograph Album.

      Photograph album 10.5 x 10.5 inches, brown cloth boards with nut and bolt binding; 52 stiff leaves of pasted-in b&w photographs alternating with leaves of typecript; a little rubbing to binder, browning to text leaves, very good. This anonymous diary - we only know that the author was called 'Sam' - records a trip to Europe by three young men from New York. Perhaps the most interesting part of the diary from an historical point of view covers the first fourteen days, when the friends were aboard RMS Carpathia, the ship which had, the previous year, led the attempts to rescue the survivors of the Titanic. Captain Arthur Rostron, who was heavily praised and decorated for his part in the rescue, continued in command of the Carpathia until sometime in 1913 and so may have been aboard the ship at this time. On 13 July the ship sailed to the rescue of another vessel whose engine had broken down; the diarist makes little comment, and so one wonders if he even knew of the Carpathia's dramatic recent history. His main concerns are girls, games and good dinners, and this part of the diary contains fascinating descriptions and photographs of life on board a steam liner, including a shuffle-board tournament, a 'cock fight' (in which two bound men have to push each other out of a chalk circle), a needle threading contest and fancy dress parties. He also records the living conditions of a low-fare passenger : "Our stateroom is very unsatisfactory, being a small room with four berths, no wardrobe... Only two at a time can dress not very confortably at that. Room is very hot, and stuffy". The rest of the diary concerns the friends' grand tour around Europe, passing through the great sights of Italy, France and Holland and ending up in London, where the author has a very unsatisfactory meal and a rather peculiar moustache trim. They embarked for home on 27th August on the Oceanic which, being "far inferior" to the Carpathia, attracts less attentive description. An excellent contemporary source for information on the daily events and lifestyle on board ocean liners in their heyday.

        In Powder and Crinoline.

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, n.d. [c.1913].. FIRST EDITION. Quarto, pp.[2]; 164. With 24 mounted colour plates, including a frontispiece, each with a captioned tissue guard. In publisher's quarter grey cloth with gilt titles to spine and red titles to grey decorated paper-covered boards. Top edge gilt; illustrated endpapers. Some light spotting and light outer wear; very good indeed. A novel collection of Fairy Tales proposed by the illustrator Kay Nielson, who wanted to illustrate fanciful tales from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, but found little obvious material from the latter period. The novelist and critic Quiller-Couch was therefore recruited to assemble this interesting mix of stories, drawn from several different traditions. Inevitably, powdered wigs and beauty spots abound in the illustrations for titles including 'Minon-Minette', 'The Man Who Never Laughed', and 'The Czarina's Violet'.

        La Voiture Dedalia classée première du grand Prix de l'ACF 1913 des Cycle Cars]

      Mabileau & Co, Paris 1913 - Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition apart from a 3/4" tear in the lower margin. Proof copy. Dedalin, 1913. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of motorized transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Airplanes. Having observed the rapidly growing interest in cars and racing during the early years of motor cars, Ernest Montaut ( 1879-1909) produced his first motoring prints in the mid-1890s, and by 1897, his drawings were pictorial records of the many races in France. Montaut's work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l'Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the better galleries. Marguerite M. Montaut, Ernest's wife, continued his work after his death producing not only racing prints but also developing a fine series of aviation prints commemorating such events as the first flights on the early European mail routes. While Marguerite Montaut's works were occasionally signed "M. Montaut", she usually used "Gamy", an anagram for Magy. The Gamy-Montaut prints were all produced by the pochoir process in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. Using these uncoloured prints as a template, elaborate stencils were cut for each colour. Water-colour was then brushed onto the image through the stencil. The colouring process was quite complex, with each print taking several days to produce. It was also quite labour intensive, and the studio of Gamy-Montaut therefore employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring.

        The Story of a Mother-Love

      Jefferson, Ohio: Annette Fitch-Brewer, 1913. This is truly a remarkable story. Even had the story taken place in contemporary times, this would have been a story reported in major newspapers and carried in extreme detail by the major networks and cable outlets. But this story of parental abduction took place nearly a century ago, in 1906. Mrs. Fitch-Brewer fled with her son in late 1905/early 1906 and was on the run in Canada and the United States for four years. The boy's father utilized the services of the Pinkerton Detective Agency, which at the time pretty much operated as a department of the federal government. The corners have some wear, while there is minor wear to the extremities of the covers and the spine. The binding is a little loose. Please refer to pictures provided. This is TRULY a remarkable book detailing a REMARKABLE story of misplaced parental emotions. This book has 289 pages and is illustrated from photographs. This, indeed, is a VERY GOOD copy of this VERY RARE title. Green Cloth with gold gilded lettering. Has pencil writing on inside of cover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. If you have any questions or would like additional pictures please just let me know. Thank you.
