        BILDERBUCH VOLUMES 1 & 2

      - FREYHOLD,K[onrad]. BILDERBUCH 2 VOLUMES: Band Tiere [and] Band Sport u. Spiel. Koln am Rhein: H. Schaffstein, funftes, viertes tausand, no date, circa 1914, 1920. Two volumes, oblong 4to (12 x 10"), cloth backed pictorial boards, except for slightest bit of cover soil, near fine in a beautiful custom clamshell box. With no text at all in either book, each leaf (printed on rectos only) features a striking, stylized full page hand- colored pochoir illustration depicting children at play or with various toys. Some illustrations are surreal, several are similar to Tom Seidmann Freud in style. The richness of the colors and the angular designs are fantastic. A series of picture books were planned but these were the only two published. It is rare to find such nice copies of both volumes together. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

        THE SALAMANDER

      Indianapolis: The Bobbs-Merrill Company, 1914. First Edition. First Printing. Octavo; vertical-ribbed dark green cloth, with titling, rule, and decorations stamped in gilt and in blind on spine and front cover; dustjacket; 529pp; frontiespiece and 15 illustrated plates in black and white by Everett Shinn. Neat, contemporary owners name and tiny, three-letter rubber-stamp to front endpaper; base of spine gently nudged, with some pinpoint wear at crown; bright, fresh, and very Near Fine. Pictorial dustjacket is priced $1.35 net at mid-spine; light toning and edge-rubbing, with a triangular chip to lower right corner of front panel slightly affecting illustration; shallow loss to spine ends and corner tips, front flap neatly detached from front panel, with a few short edge tears and small splits; Very Good. 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.

        [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.

        In Erwartung.

      1914 1914 - Farbholzschnitt, gedruckt von drei Stöcken, in Dunkelgrau und Braun über hellbrauner Tonplatte, 1914. Darstellungsgröße 33,3:21,5 cm, Blattgröße 35:25,8 cm. Kirschl HS 20, b II (ohne Wellen und Horizontlinien); Söhn HDO 51002-6; erschienen in der II. Jahresgabe der Freunde graphischer Kunst, Leipzig 1914. – Bis auf eine leichte Bräunung an drei Rändern sehr guter Abdruck auf Japan. Nach dem väterlichen Willen besuchte Moser 1891-1893 die Handelsakademie in Dresden und arbeitete bis 1896 im elterlichen Geschäft in Bozen. Nebenbei war er bereits künstlerisch tätig und wurde von F. von Defregger (1835-1921) zum Kunststudium ermuntert. 1896-1901 studierte er an der Akademie in München bei G. von Hackl (1843-1926), K. Raupp (1837-1918) und L. Herterich (1856-1932). Nach Abschluß seines Studiums führten ihn Reisen nach Deutschland, Italien, Korsika und Frankreich. 1901 schrieb er sich an der Académie Julian in Paris ein. Die Sommermonate verbrachte er in der Bretagne und der Normandie. Über den Wiener Maler M. Kurzweil (1867-1916) lernte Moser die japanische Holzschnitttechnik kennen, mit der er sich von nun an intensiv beschäftige und die er bis zur Perfektion entwickelte. 1907 kehrte Moser nach Bozen zurück. In den folgenden Jahren erhielt er Stipendien und nahm an zahlreichen Ausstellungen teil. 1915 wurde er als Leutnant in den Kriegsdienst eingezogen. Nach Kriegsende beteiligte er sich an der von A. Egger-Lienz (1868-1925) initiierten Ausstellung „Tiroler Künstler" in Zürich. In den zwanziger Jahren stellte sich für den Künstler der kommerzielle Erfolg ein. Seine Farbholzschnitte waren jetzt nicht nur in seiner Heimat gefragt, sondern auch im gesamten deutschen Raum.

        Kai Chigusa - The Illustrations of a Thousand Shells [ One Thousand Kinds of Shells ]

      Kyoto: Unsodo 1914 / 1915. 3 volumes, each with 20 fine woodblock prints. Hirase was a collector and dealer, as well as a scholar in shells. He had intended to publish 10 volumes in this series, but only produced 4 (the fourth being published in 1922). He opted to use the traditional Japanese woodblock process, rather than lithography, and produced stunning results. They are all very scarce (the 3rd and 4th especially so, as the print run was reduced), and these three are in especially fine condition. . Fine. Japanese Binding. 1914. Small 4to..
