        Les Soirées de Paris, No. 21-25.

      - Paris, 1914. 26x17,5 cm. 73-356 pp. + 22 leaves of plates. Five issues in original printed wrappers, stapled. Laid in is an invitation to a "Bazar de Printemps", held in Stockholm in 1917 for the benefit of Jewish victims of the war. There are tears on the spines, the wrappers are slightly soiled and torn in outer and lower margins. Issue 21 has a stain at lower right-hand corner on pp. 73-90, slightly affecting two plates. Pp. 325-332 in issue 25 are loose. Contents of the five issues are generally fine but there are a few scattered small tears, chips and specks. The short-lived but influential magazine Les Soirées de Paris was founded by Apollinaire, André Salmon, André Billy and others in order to cover the contemporary art and literature. It ran for 27 issues (some double) the years 1912-1914, when the publication was broken off by the war. Among the contributors and artists treated were Jarry, Picabia, Matisse, Jacob, and Braque. The five issues offered here come from the library of Isaac Grünewald (1889-1946), and three of them bear his signature on front wrapper. Grünewald was the foremost artist and public defender of the first wave of Swedish modernism and held the position of professor at the Royal Swedish Academy of Arts between 1932 and 1942. He lived in Paris in the years 1908-1911, where he studied painting at the academy of Matisse, and befriended authors and artists, for instance Apollinaire, Jacob and Salmon, who were associated with Les Soirées de Paris.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Fz. Marc").

      Sindelsdorf, 18. IV. 1914. - 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. Gestempelter Briefkopf, liniertes Papier. Schöner Brief an Hugo Ball (1886-1927), damals Dramaturg an den Münchner Kammerspielen, mit der Absage an ein Theaterprojekt: "[.] Nun wird aber der Fall dadurch sehr vereinfacht, daß unter den Künstlern, die Sie zunächst in's Auge fassten, ich wahrscheinlich der Einzige bin, der diesen unvermeidlichen Konflikt zu fürchten hat. So wie ich Bechtejeff, Jawlensky, Seewald und Weisgerber kenne, werden diese gewiß famose Dekorationen und Bühnenbilder schaffen, zu denen das Düsseldorfer Ensemble ein homogenes Spiel bieten wird. Ich bin davon fest überzeugt, aber ebenso überzeugt von der Unmöglichkeit meinerseits, hier mitzuthun. Ich warte dann lieber, bis sich einmal wirklich etwas Neues schaffen lässt, mit eigenem Ensemble und vollkommener Bewegungsfreiheit. Sonst kommt nichts Festes zu Stande. Dann müsste man Kokoschka, Kandinsky, Klee, Macke berufen und als Musiker (die heute für die Bühne gar nicht zu entbehren sind) der Schönbergkreis (Schönberg, Webern, Alban Berg u.a.) gewinnen, alles zeitig vorbereitet, damit nichts überstürzt wird [.] Ich schrieb Ihnen dies alles, damit Sie sich nicht über meine persönliche Stellungnahme täuschen. Ich habe nicht die geringste Lust, an einer halben Sache mitzuwirken. Ich bin neugierig wie sie weiter läuft (im Grunde weiß ich aber genau, wie sie laufen wird, nämlich wie immer in Windungen) [.]". - Der russische Maler Wladimir Georgijewitsch Bechtejew (1878-1971) war seit 1909 Mitglied der Neuen Künstlervereinigung München und stand dem "Blauen Reiter" nahe. Er beteiligte sich an dem besprochenen Theaterprojekt von Hugo Ball, das sich aber - wie auch die weiteren Aktivitäten mit Mitgliedern des "Blauen Reiters" - zerschlug. Er kehrte 1914 nach Rußland zurück, wurde zur Armee einberufen und arbeitete nach dem Krieg als Bühnenbildner und Illustrator. - Gedruckt in: Franz Marc. Briefe, Schriften, Aufzeichnungen. Leipzig 1989. S. 95.

        London

      London: Privately printed for Alvin Langdon Cobrn and Edmund D. Brooks & Their Friends,, 1914. With Ten Photographs by Alvin Langdon Coburn. Octavo. Original linen-backed boards, grey paper sides, titles to spine and front board in black. 10 mounted photographs by Alvin Langdon Coburn. Spine a little dusty, lower corner bumped, otherwise an excellent copy. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by Coburn on the front free endpaper, "To C. C. Parker, Prince of Bookseller's. From his friend Alvin Langdon Coburn, Christmas 1914." C.C. Parker was a bookseller who had established a shop on South Broadway in 1895, publishing Coburn's The Cloud in 1912. Chesterton's introductory text offers an explanation for the expertise of Coburn's quietly resonant and curiously angled images of London's landmarks: "the spectator is a serious mystic (that is, a materialist also) and appreciates the bodily beauty of heights, which should always be seen from below. The Devil takes us to the top of an exceedingly high mountain, and makes us dizzy: but God lets us look at the mountain. Yet this mountain made by man can only be seen in London by "sighting;" by getting it between two houses, as a pilot steers between two rocks. Get the sighting wrong and you will see only a public-house, or (what is much worse) a shop full of newspapers.

        Corrispondenza autografa firmata, circa cinquanta pagine. 1914-1925.

      RUSSO Ferdinando. Il poeta che con i suoi versi più si avvicinò all'animo del popolo napoletano. 1868-1927. Corrispondenza autografa firmata, circa cinquanta pagine, tra lettere e cartoline postali, compresa tra il Maggio 1914 ed il 1925, alcune senza data diretta a Angelo Flavio Guidi, giornalista e scrittore, a lungo collaboratore di Vela Latina ed Epoca. E' compresa anche una poesia: "Mò cà luntana stai". Un interessante spaccato questo carteggio sulla vita e l'opera di Ferdinando Russo che da direttore di Vela Latina accetta di buon grado l'offerta di collaborazione del giovane Guidi cui è prodigo di suggerimenti giornalistici e complimenti per i vari articoli con qualche espressione d'augurio di gloria e vittorie per il giovane sottotenente in zona di guerra. Il 2 Luglio 1919 ".ho saputo per caso che siete redattore di Epoca. Posso mandarvi i miei libri ?". Inizia così una lunga e fattiva collaborazione con Epoca e molte sono le questioni attraenti. Dalle lamentele per ritardi amministrativi, alle proteste per i tagli subiti da i suoi articoli. Un breve accenno a Giovanni Verga ".il nostro grande dimenticato.". Un ringraziamento a Benedetto Croce per la sistemazione della Biblioteca e del Museo di Napoli del quale ".io sono ispettore.". Un insieme assai interessante per una valutazione dell'opera di Ferdinando Russo.

        [Cycles Motos Alcyon] [Lehmann et Jolly motos Alcyon 1914]

      Colombes: Mabileau & Co., 1914. Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition. approximately 26 1/2 x 12 1/4 inches. approximately 35 3/8 x 17 3/4 inches. Founded in 1902 by the industrialist Edmond Gentil, Alcyon was a manufacturer of motorcycles and cycles. Renowned for their sturdiness and buoyancy, their motorbikes were built with a Swiss ZL engine beginning in 1904. 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.
