        The Art Of Spiritual Harmony By Wassily Kandinsky: Translated With An Introduction By M.T.H. Sadler Illustrated

      Constable And Company Limited, London 1914 - Marbled-paper boards and leather spine label stamped in gilt. Near fine, small hint of wear to spine, very clean copy "Wassily Kandinsky's contributions as a theorist were arguably more influential on modern art than any of his paintings. In Concerning the Spiritual in Art, first published in 1914, Kandinsky both promotes and defends a form of art in which painters express themselves in abstract terms independent of the material world around them, much as musicians do. Divided into two parts, About General Aesthetic (including an examination of geometrical forms) and About Painting (a discussion of the psychology of color and the language and form of color), Concerning the Spiritual in Art offers an insight into the mind of one of the most renowned of all abstract painters and a preview of the art that he was to produce in the years to come" [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        IF

      Macmillan and Co. Limited. London. 1914. SECOND SEPARATE ENGLISH EDITION. 8vo. (6.5 x 4.6 inches). Printed cover plus 4pp, as per Richards A269 but with the addition of a portrait frontis of Kipling after an illustration by M. Webb which is printed on stiff dark grey paper. The grey paper covers are then bound in contemporary full burgundy soft suede binding with red, white and blue silk tie to the spine. Front panel lettered in gilt and with blind stamped line ruled border with floral corner pieces. A little minor foxing to the text pages but overall a lovely presentation of this important work. Probably bound at the time of publication by either a bookseller or gift shop to make the thin paper wrappered poem more suitable for presentation as a gift. No copy in this format with this binding and with the portrait has been seen by the author of the most recent and comprehensive Kipling bibliography so this is very likely not a publishers variant. ----- The Poem first appeared in the book Rewards and Fairies (October 1910), this separate publication was issued to capitalise on the huge, and instant, popularity of what has become Kipling's most enduring work of verse. A poll taken by the BBC in the UK in 2005 voted it as Britain's favourite Poem, poling twice as many votes as the number 2 choice, Lord Tennyson's The Lady of Shallot. Originally written in 1895, IF was inspired by the actions of Dr. Leander Starr Jameson, a British Officer whose forces were defeated by the Boers in 1895, but who was portrayed as a victorious hero by the British press, the poem is a powerful masterclass in maintaining the British stiff upper lip. ---- David Alan Richards. Rudyard Kipling. A bibliography. A269. Note. -- 5000 copies printed in July 1914.

Quarto (9 5/8 x 6 3/4 inches; 245 x 172 mm.). 36 pp. Color pictorial title-page and thirty-four full-page color illustrations. Original quarter red cloth over tan cloth boards, front cover with full-color illustration (taken from the color illustration on page 13) pasted-on, pictorial gray end-papers. A spectacular copy. Very scarce, especially in this condition.A charming little book which pictorially follows the exciting day of Daddy Cat and his two kittens. At the end of the last 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 [a]lthough he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!"

        Verfall und Triumph. Zweiter teil. Versuche in prosa, Berlin, Hyperionverlag, 1914.

      1914 - In-8º mayor.- 118 (1 h.) p.- Fina encuadernación en medio chagrin azul oscuro; lomo de cinco nervios; títulos dorados; cubiertas originales conservadas.- Ejemplar que perteneció a Jorge Luis Borges, con su firma autógrafa en la anteportada, datada en Valldemosa.- Procedencia: Anneliese von der Lippen, ex dono J.L.B. (nota autógrafa de la destinataria, inscripta al pie de la firma del escritor: “Jorge Luis Borges / an Anneliese v. d. Lippen / 18 Januar 1975”. Borges llegó a Mallorca en 1918, poco después de haber declarado su adhesión a la revolución rusa y de haber descubierto a los poetas expresionistas alemanes, cuya obra difundió y tradujo durante su permanencia en España. Entre ellos, su más admirado fue Johannes R.Becher, a quien declaraba el mejor poeta alemán de la época, “quien supo rimar la gesta de la guerra y la revolución (y quien) desde las barricadas de Berlín nos tiende sus poemas”. En 1920 Borges publicaría la traducción de su poema “Lusitania”, de su libro An Europa (1916). El ejemplar de Verfall und Triumph da testimonio de un momento crucial del desarrollo de Borges como lector y escritor, quien más tarde incluiría a Becher entre los pocos nombres que sintetizaron, para él, la literatura misma: “Durante muchos años, yo creí que la casi infinita literatura estaba en un hombre. Ese hombre fue Carlyle, fue Johannes Becher, fue Whitman, fue Rafael Cansinos-Assens, fue De Quincey." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        ALs to Dr. John Weichsel

      NY, (1914-15). Single sheet, imprinted with the address of his parent's home, "Fourteen East Sixtieth Street.", New York. Folded once, 3 pp.. Slight age toning, else fine. " Dear Weichsel: It is rather late to thank you for the splendid contribution to the 291 Number. It is one of the few really strong ones. The book is going to be of last (sic) value. It is going to do real work, I'm sure. I know of nothing like it. Even the 'Insiders' will be surprised - & delighted. I am sorry to have missed you at 291. I have been chasing about quite a little, something the visitors to 291 have not been accustomed to. Hoping to see you soon - Picasso, Braque, and some Mexican art on now - with greetings- Stieglitz." Dr. John Weichsel was a seminal figure in the New York art circle in the late teens and twenties. He was a prominent critic and founder of The People's Art Guild, and a frequent contributor to Camera Work. From 9 December 1914 - 11 January 1915, exhibited the artists mentioned in this letter.

First Printing of Johnson's influential novel - the first book to feature a flapper as a protagonist, and the inspiration for Zelda Fitzgerald's glamorous and destructive life. Johnson described a few breed of women, the "salamanders," who rejected domesticity for the intoxication of city life, where they patronized speakeasies and had affairs in a fashion completely unthinkable only a generation before. Within just a few years, these women would become known as the "flappers" of the Jazz Age. The novel was a success upon publication, reaching an estimated ten million readers, and the stage and film adaptations, both wildly successful, featured Ruth Findlay in the lead role of Doré Baxter. Rare in dustjacket. Smith J-117.

        Le Jeu, la Chance et le Hasard

      Paris: Ernest Flammarion, Editeur,, 1914. Octavo. Original orange wrappers, spine and sides lettered in black, edges uncut. Black and white illustrations in the text. Joints a little rubbed, spine ends with a little wear. Paper stock lightly toned; a very good copy. First edition. Louis Bachelier (1870?-1946) was an eminent French mathematician and a pioneer in the study of financial mathematics. During his studies at the Sorbonne he wrote his famous thesis, Théorie de la speculation (1900), in which he defined Brownian motion, predating Einstein by five years, and discussed its application to the evaluation of stock options. Bachelier summarized his main idea in a single sentence - "The mathematical expectation of the speculator is zero." It was the first paper to use advanced mathematics in the study of finance, and was popularized in this volume, Le Jeu, La Chance et le Hasard (Games, Chance, and Randomness). The economic aspect of Bachelier's work went largely unrecognised in his lifetime until its rediscovery by financial economists over fifty years later, with astounding results. Within 25 years the theory of option pricing was substantially complete, and a multibillion-dollar global industry of option trading had emerged. Uncommon.

      London, Methuen & Co., LTD., 1914 - London, Methuen & Co., LTD., 1914, first edition.

Very good plus. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [Three Illustrated Manuscript Journal by A Pittsburgh Citizen]

      [Pittsburgh?], [ca. 1914-1933?]. Hardcover. Very good. Three 8vo. volumes. Vols. I & II in matching red and black cloth, one titled (on spine and cover) "Record," the other (spine only) "Journal." Each 7.75" x 5" approx. and paginated identically: [1- illustrated and annotated pastedown], [4], 3-186, [1 - illustrated and annotated pastedown]. More than 200 illustrations in each of these volumes, most in color - ink with crayon and colored pencil. Vol. III in limp textured black boards; 8.5" x 5.75" approx. and paginated: [1 - illustrated and annotated pastedown], [1-321], [blank], [pastedown]. Includes more than 350 illustrations, most pen and ink portraits, but several color and/or other subjects. All volumes fully used and filled in a tiny and meticulous hand. Very good or better overall. Each volume apparently complete, though ellipses in dating suggests that these were but a fragment of the author's total output. An idiosyncratic but extraordinary creation by a sadly anonymous citizen of Pittsburgh, PA. Part personal diary, part hermetic rant, part folk art, these three volumes -- totaling some 100,000 words with more than 750 original illustrations -- present a wholly original voice that uniquely melds local politics, religious rhetoric, original verse, and vernacular caricature. Taking as its starting point the daily events of Pittsburgh and vicinity, the journals seem inspired first and foremost by daily newspapers, sometimes as simple redactions of the day's reported events, but much more often as amplifications, illuminations, and lampoonings - much of it quite hilarious. Jokes, many written in Irish dialect, line the margins, along with numerous examples of topical verse - none of it (at the risk of damning with faint praise) terrible. Other entries rail against politicians (especially Republicans), the Temperance movement (especially its women), and England (perhaps most especially of all), much of it in a kind of private language that is equal parts pulpit and poetic. Most entries accompanied by hand-drawn and (usually) hand-colored portraits, including many sympathetic renderings of figures from the left: Mother Jones, Eugene Debs, Samuel Gompers, Pancho Villa, etc. While their elegant simplicity, economy of line, and primary palette seem to presage the work of a contemporary artist like Marcel Dzama, their earthy portraiture appear equally indebted to Hieronymus Bosch. Unfortunately, the journals contain little personal information, so our efforts to identify their creator have proved fruitless. However, we can assert the following: he was an Irishman, probably born in County Wexford ca. 1880; he had an intimate knowledge of the inner workings of ward politics, and he detested the Church and the English, about whom he was only bad things to say. Clearly the work of an obsessive compulsive with graphomaniac tendencies, the work is nonetheless one of the most fully realized outsider books we've encountered, one of only a few whose text is the equal of its art. While its political concerns recall the creations of Charles Dellschau, its strangeness brings to mind nothing so much as Henry Darger's IN THE REALMS OF THE UNREAL. In short, a continually inventive outsider work, worthy of further study.
