      London: Constable and Company Limited,, 1914. Translated with an introduction by M. T. H. Sadler. Illustrated. Small quarto. Original blue cloth-backed marbled boards, titles to brown paper label to spine gilt, top edge untrimmed, others trimmed. With 13 plates, 10 full page reproductions of art, 4 by Kandinsky, 3 diagrams printed in red and black, further illustrations to text. Wear to extremities, light foxing to edges, an excellent copy. First English edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by Sadler as Sadleir (his nom de plume) on the half-title, "Martha Smith, from Michael Sadleir, Nov. 1923, in the hope she may understand it better than the translator can now claim to do. One is so intrepid at twenty five." Martha Smith was Sadleir's secretary at Constable where he worked from 1912, becoming director in 1920. Alongside his work for Constable Sadleir was an author and well known book collector, "who notably distinguished himself in each department of his activity. He was described as the most accomplished book collector of his time, and his collection influenced his success as a novelist and biographer and affected his policy as a publisher" (ODNB). Kandinsky's treatise, Du Spirituel dans l'art, was written in 1910 and originally published in French in 1912. It was published in an American translation in 1946, followed by a third translation authorised by Kandinsky's widow in 1947 thought to be the fullest and most faithful version.

        Suitesurunjaponpourunlivrequin'existepas

      Editions Georges Visat, 1914. Suite sur un japon pour un livre qui n'existe pas. 10 incisioni a puntasecca, acquaforte e acquatinta, numerate, firmate e datate su carta Giappone: cm 8x6,5 - 11,8x11,3 - 7,2x6,4 - 6x10,5 - 7x6,3 - 5,5x5 - 7x6,4 - 6,7x11 - 18x12 - 8,1x5,7 (Foglio cm 23x15,8). Cartelletta cm 24x16. pp.. . Ottimo (Fine). . Prima edizione di 15 es. numerati. . La collaborazione tra l'artista danese Asger Jorn (Vejrum 1914 - Aarhus 1973) e l'editore francese Georges Visat (Foce, Corsica 1910 - Arzacq 2001) fu favorita dalla mediazione di Roberto Matta. Infatti Jorn, trovandosi a Parigi alla ricerca di un editore, si rivolse all'amico artista che gli fece il nome di Visat, con l'assicurazione che lo stampatore non avrebbe di sicuro deluso le sue aspettative. Matta aggiunse che per incontrare Visat bastava attenderlo alle 10 di ogni mattina presso il caffè accanto al suo atelier, al numero 13 di rue du Dragon. Una mattina Jorn si recò al caffè, ma non osando avvicinare l'editore, continuò a fissarlo fino a che Visat, sentendosi osservato, si avvicinò per primo all'Artista. Jorn gli affidò una serie di incisioni, parlandogli del suo desiderio di farne un'edizione. Di quella serie di 10 incisioni ne furono stampate solo 15 copie, che Visat raccolse in una cartelletta e propose di chiamare ''Suitesurunjaponpourunlivrequin'existepas''. Il testo infatti sarebbe stato pensato ed organizzato in un incontro successivo presso l'Atelier Visat, appuntamento che si realizzò soltanto un anno dopo. Ne nacque però un libro del tutto nuovo, ''Entrée de secours'', con 9 diverse opere grafiche, stampato in 100 esemplari nel 1971. (informazioni in parte fornite da Yannick Minous Visat).

        Photo album]: "Triple Alliance"

      [Central New Jersey] 1914 - Photo album. Oblong octavo. Thick card leaves with inset grommets intended for string binding, now disbound. Contains 33 mounted gelatin silver images, mostly around 2.75" x 4.5" with several of the images either a little larger or smaller. Some of the margins of the thick card have chipped or broken away, the boards fair only, the images about very good with some uneven fading on some, and one chip in the corner of one image. The front board is hand-lettered "Triple Alliance", otherwise the album is mostly uncaptioned except for one image identified as "Centre town, New Jersey", but most with dates; all in either 1912, 1913 or 1914. An interesting album, apparently of a men's athletic club, most of the images depict younger men in athletic tank tops with the intertwined T & A logo of the Triple Alliance. The cheerful group are depicted playing baseball, brandishing tennis racquets, sailing, canoeing, swimming, on the beach or by a boathouse, and in a couple of images hugging girls. Provenance, as well as the one captioned photo, suggests that the album came from the Central New Jersey Shore area. The nearest match to Centre Town we could find in New Jersey was Centreton in Salem, N.J.

Includes the original Arabic and an introduction in German by Heinrich Wiesel. "Taqi ad-Din Ahmad ibn Taymiyyah known as Ibn Taymiyyah (1263 – 1328) was a Islamic scholar, theologian and logician. He lived during the troubled times of the Mongol invasions, much of the time in Damascus. He was a member of the school founded by Ahmad ibn Hanbal and is considered by his followers, along with Ibn Qudamah, as one of the two most significant proponents of Hanbalism. In the modern era, his adherents often refer to the two as ‘the two sheikhs’ and Ibn Taymiyyah in particular as ‘Sheikh ul-Islam. ’ (He) sought the return of Sunni Islam to what he viewed as earlier interpretations of the Qur'an and the Sunnah, and is considered to have had considerable influence in contemporary Wahhabism, Salafism, and Jihadism. He is renowned for his fatwa issued against the Mongol rulers declaring jihad by Muslims against them compulsory, on the grounds that they did not follow Sharia and as such were not Muslim His teachings had a profound influence on Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, and other later Wahabi scholars. " (Wikipedia, 2016) This copy belongd to Rabbi David Zvi Hoffman. "Hoffman (1843 – 1921) was an Orthodox Rabbi and Torah Scholar. Born in Verbó in 1843, he attended various Yeshivas in his native town before he entered the college at Pressburg, from which he graduated in 1865 His rabbinical training was at the hands of Moshe Schick and Azriel Hildesheimer. Shortly after obtaining his degree, he became employed as a teacher in Samson Raphael Hirsch's Realschule school in Frankfurt am Main, and in 1873 moved to Berlin to join the faculty of the Rabbinical Seminary of Berlin where he eventually became rector in 1899 after the death of Azriel Hildesheimer Hoffman was the leading authority on traditional halakha (Jewish law) in Germany in his lifetime He was also known for his efforts to disprove the Documentary Hypothesis, as expressed by the Graf-Wellhausen theory, with his arguments presented in the work Die wichtigsten Instanzen gegen die Graf-Wellhausensche Hypothese " (Wikipedia, 2016) SUBJECT(S) : Islam -- Prayers and devotions.

Solid hardcover. ; Richard A Hand; A Bookman's Guide to the Indians of the Americas; D 197. Includes 80 photogravure plates by Joseph K Dixon; his sepia-toned photographs were highly imitative of Edward S Curtis. The "Wanamaker Indian expeditions of 1908, 1909, and 1913 ... were organized and funded by Rodman Wanamaker, heir to the Philadelphia-based Wanamaker department store fortune, and a political advocate for the rights of Native Americans to citizenship in the United States. Wanamaker was particularly concerned that the life and culture of the "vanishing race" would be lost to modernity and relegated to reservation life.To further his cause and to publicize the plight of the American Indian, Wanamaker funded these expeditions to document Indian life and culture through photography, film, and sound recordings. On each of these expeditions, Rodman Wanamaker employed former Baptist preacher and lecturer Joseph Kossuth Dixon as his official photographer and expedition leader. Dixon had previously been employed by RodmanÂ’s father, John Wanamaker, as a lecturer for, and the director of, the Wanamaker department store's education bureau. In his new position with the expeditions, Joseph K. Dixon took over 8,000 negatives of Native Americans ... Unlike Adam Clark Vroman's work, Dixon's photographs over the course of these three trips have been criticized for their sentimentality. Through staged shots and photographic manipulation, Dixon emphasized the romanticism of the "noble savage"—a message that clearly complemented Wanamaker's desire to stir sympathy for Native Americans in the hearts of white citizens. ... Each of the Wanamaker expeditions was organized around a particular conceit that Rodman Wanamaker had chosen as a means to "accurately" depict and preserve Indian life. During the first expedition in 1908, Joseph K. Dixon traveled to the Crow reservation in Montana to film a version of Henry Longfellow's poem, "Song of Hiawatha," using the Native Americans at the agency as actors. He also photographed the Crows at their camp at Little Big Horn. The following year, Rodman Wanamaker charged Dixon with organizing an "old-time Indian council" at the Crow Agency, a traditional gathering of fifty chiefs from several United States reservations to discuss tribal politics; the last gathering of its kind had reportedly occurred in 1867. As with the 1908 expedition, this "Last Great Indian Council," as Dixon and Wanamaker called it, was recorded on motion-picture film and in photographs. During the last expedition in 1913, Dixon organized and photographed a series of flag-raising ceremonies on dozens of Indian reservations across the West, purportedly to show Indian allegiance to the United States and to publicize Rodman Wanamaker's efforts at lobbying for the citizenship of Native Americans." - Massachusetts Historical Society. Dixon stage-managed the Wanamaker Expeditions' events, including gathering the war stories of surviving participants of the Battle of the Little Big Horn, Custer's Last Stand. By romanticising the vanishing of Native American Indian culture, Wanamaker and Dixon helped rally support of Reform Era popular efforts for assimilation while at the same time reinforcing the mythology of the noble but vanquished American Indians. A solid Second Revised Edition hardcover of this important work illuminating American social history and popular culture. ; Photographs; xviii, 231 pages .

He lived during the troubled times of the Mongol invasions, much of the time in Damascus. He was a member of the school founded by Ahmad ibn Hanbal and is considered by his followers, along with Ibn Qudamah, as one of the two most significant proponents of Hanbalism. In the modern era, his adherents often refer to the two as ‘the two sheikhsÂ’ and Ibn Taymiyyah in particular as ‘Sheikh ul-Islam. Â’ (He) sought the return of Sunni Islam to what he viewed as earlier interpretations of the Qur'an and the Sunnah, and is considered to have had considerable influence in contemporary Wahhabism, Salafism, and Jihadism. He is renowned for his fatwa issued against the Mongol rulers declaring jihad by Muslims against them compulsory, on the grounds that they did not follow Sharia and as such were not MuslimÂ… His teachings had a profound influence on Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, and other later Wahabi scholars. ” (Wikipedia, 2016) This copy belongd to Rabbi David Zvi Hoffman. “Hoffman (1843 – 1921) was an Orthodox Rabbi and Torah Scholar. Born in Verbó in 1843, he attended various Yeshivas in his native town before he entered the college at Pressburg, from which he graduated in 1865Â… His rabbinical training was at the hands of Moshe Schick and Azriel Hildesheimer. Shortly after obtaining his degree, he became employed as a teacher in Samson Raphael Hirsch's Realschule school in Frankfurt am Main, and in 1873 moved to Berlin to join the faculty of the Rabbinical Seminary of Berlin where he eventually became rector in 1899 after the death of Azriel HildesheimerÂ… Hoffman was the leading authority on traditional halakha (Jewish law) in Germany in his lifetimeÂ… He was also known for his efforts to disprove the Documentary Hypothesis, as expressed by the Graf-Wellhausen theory, with his arguments presented in the work Die wichtigsten Instanzen gegen die Graf-Wellhausensche Hypothese…” (Wikipedia, 2016) SUBJECT(S) : Islam -- Prayers and devotions.

        Das schmerzliche Meer. Frühe und neue Gedichte.

      Erste Ausgabe. - Eins von 100 nummerierten und vom Verfasser signierten Exemplaren davon erschienen 10 Exemplare auf Japanpapier mit einem Holzschnitt von Conrad Felixmüller in Ganzleder. - Rheiner kam 1914 als einer der Jüngsten in die exzentrische Gesellschaft des Cafés des Westens, wo er schnell Anschluss fand. Besonders engen Kontakt pflegte er dort mit Johannes R. Becher, der sich zu dieser Zeit durch Narkotika und vorgetäuschte Sucht dem Wehrdienst entzog. Diese Idee, wohl von Hardekopf kommend, sollte für Rheiner erfolglos bleiben und den Beginn seiner Abhängigkeit bedeuten. Gleichzeitig fasste er hier den Entschluss, sich als Dichter zu verdingen und so erschienen bereits im Folgejahr erste Arbeiten u.a. in Pfemferts ?Aktion?. Vom Dienst an der Front suspendiert und nach Berlin zurückgekehrt, verfiel Rheiner endgültig dem Lebensstil der Bohème und seiner Sucht. Die Vormittage verschlief er, die Nachmittage saß er die meiste Zeit im Romanischen Café, wo er bis in die Abendstunden blieb, um dann, heimgekehrt, des Nachts zu schreiben. Seine Texte fanden in den bedeutenden spätexpressionistischen Blättern Veröffentlichung. Überdies beteiligte sich Rheiner an der Gründung der ?Expressionistischen Arbeitsgemeinschaft Dresden?, worauf die Einrichtung des ?Dresdner Verlages von 1917? folgte, in dem, bis auf eine Ausnahme, alle seine selbstständigen Publikationen erschienen. Die letzten Jahre verbrachte er vereinsamt und vergessen an verschiedenen Orten, meist ohne feste Bleibe, bis er an einer Überdosis Morphium verstarb. (Vgl. Thomas Rietzschel. In: Walter Rheiner. Kokain. Lyrik, Prosa, Briefe. Leipzig 1985, S. 285-303.) - Einbandkanten stark berieben, Bll. teils stockfleckig. - Raabe/Hannich-B. 245. 3. - Jentsch 40.

        Nähendes Mädchen 1914

      - Technik: Bleistift auf Karton. Beschriftung: unten links signiert und datiert: "F. Simm 12 VII 14". Grösse: 27,4 x 31,5 cm (Darstellung). Beschreibung: Künstler wie Eugen Klimsch und Franz Xaver Simm werden heute allzu selten aus der Schublade der Kunstgeschichte ans Tageslicht gezogen. Sie gehören zu den Namen, die keine magische Anziehungskraft besitzen, um die Ausstellungsräume mit Publikum zu füllen. Zu Unrecht, wie man am Beispiel Simms sieht. Denn nur ein wenig Aufgeschlossenheit ist nötig, um die endlosen Reize dieser Kunst zu entdecken, einer Kunst, die sich zwar dem Begriff Moderne völlig entzieht, und trotzdem, oder gerade deswegen, dem heutigen Betrachter viel zu bieten hat. Simm war ein österreichischer Illustrator und Salonmaler, der seine Werke mit unbeschwerten Genreszenen, mit schönen Damen und engelhaften Kindern füllte. Er studierte an der Wiener Kunstakademie bei den Historienmalern Eduard von Engerth und Anselm Feuerbach. Nach einem Aufenthalt in Tiflis, wo er mit seiner Frau Marie Simm-Meyer, die ebenfalls Künstlerin war, die mytho-logischen Wandmalereien im Kaukasischen Museum fertigte, ließ er sich in München nieder. Es ist eine charmante Darstellung einer jungen Näherin in Gebirgstracht mit dunklem Mieder und weißer Bluse mit kurzen Puff-ärmeln. Sie geht gerade ihrer Arbeit nach, als sie von einem Besucher überrascht wird. Deshalb schaut sie von ihrem Tisch auf, auf dem ein kleines Nähkästchen steht, und hebt den Kopf hoch, um den Gast anzublicken. Ihr Gesichtsausdruck schwankt einen Moment lang zwischen Unsicherheit und Freude. Diesen Moment hat der Künstler in seiner Zeichnung virtuos festgehalten. Für die Darstellung genau solcher Augenblicke lohnt es sich, die Voreingenommenheit gegenüber der Salonkunst abzulegen. Es handelt sich um einen Gesamtpreis inkl. Versandkosten innerhalb der BRD. Umsatzsteuer wird wegen Differenzbesteuerung nach §25a UstG weder erhoben noch ausgewiesen. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
