        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]

        [Personal Documents and Promotional Materials From George Peabody College for Teachers]

      Nashville, TN, (ca. early 1920s to late 1930s). Very good. Collection of 100+ items/3” linear approx. belonging to student of Peabody College for Teachers, comprised primarily of personal papers relating to the studentÂ’s course materials, schedules, receipts, graduation forms and invitations, a photograph of classmates, social club rosters, directories, correspondence, and promotional material issued by the college including brochures, newsletters, bulletins, solicitations, alumni association and other assorted materials. Some toning, wear. Generally very good. Archive a student who received his BS, MA and PhD at Peabody, as well as that of his wife, who also graduated from Peabody with a BS. The couple were both heavily involved in the school, members of numerous social organizations, and active in student government (he was president of the senior class of '26). The promotional material in the collection shows that the college, which had reorganized and opened a new campus directly across from Vanderbilt University in 1914, was in the midst of major construction and expansion projects during this time; many pieces show photographs and renderings of new or planned buildings. The college, at that time the largest teachers' college in the South, was incorporated into Vanderbilt in 1979. A varied education archive, particularly rich with detail of curricula and student life.

        North of Boston, the first edition, first issue, final binding state, signed by Frost in 1924, the year he won his first Pulitzer Prize for Poetry with Frost's notation of the location of the cottage in England where he was living when North of Boston was published and the year of publication, 1914

      London: David Nutt, 1914. First edition. Hardcover. This first edition, first issue, final binding state of the authorÂ’s second published book is signed by Frost in black ink in four lines on the front free endpaper: "Robert Frost | Amherst 1924 | (Little Iddens, Leddington, | near Ledbury, England, 1914)”. Frost and his family moved to Little Iddens in early April, 1914, occupying a two-storey cottage with a vegetable garden and orchards of apple, plum, and pear trees. Mid-May 1914 saw FrostÂ’s second published book, North of Boston, which bolstered his newly minted literary reputation and precipitated his return to the United States. In 1924, when this copy was signed, Frost was ensconced at Amherst College and won his first Pulitzer Prize for Poetry. North of Boston opens with the famous poems “The Pasture” and “Mending Wall” and was swiftly hailed by important reviews. Complicating the publication history, the 1,000 sets of first edition sheets saw six different binding variants over a period of eight years, due both to transfer of sheets for an American edition and to bankruptcy of the original publisher (Nutt) and resulting sale of remaining first edition sheets. (See Crane, A3, pp.14-15) In 1922, Dunster House Bookshop of Cambridge, Massachusetts, acquired the remaining 259 sets of first edition sheets. Of these, 59 were already bound in blue cloth, subsequently rebound in green cloth taller and narrower than the original 1914 binding. The final 200 sets of first edition sheets were bound in 1923 in coarse green linen cloth “almost identical in dimension with the original Nutt copies which were being imitated. Similarities of cloth and gilt-stamping in binding A and bindings E and F indicate that the work was done by the same binder in England before the later copies were sent to America.” (Crane, A3, p.15) These final 200 first edition, first issue copies (“Binding F” per Crane) were bound with untrimmed fore and bottom edges. This signed Binding F copy is in very good plus condition. The green cloth binding is tight and square with sharp corners and only trivial wear to extremities. We note modest toning to the perimeter of the boards and the spine, the spine gilt remaining clearly legible. The book is clearly unread; signatures through that of pages 125-8 remain uncut. We find no spotting or previous ownership marks. The contents show modest age-toning and a 1.5 inch closed tear to the lower blank margin of page 16 (part of the uncut p.13-16 signature). There is transfer browning to the pastedowns and facing endpapers from the pastedown glue. Iconic American poet Robert Lee Frost (1874-1963) was the quintessential poetic voice of New England. Ironically, Frost was born in San Francisco and it was a 1912 move to England with his wife and children – “the place to be poor and to write poems” – that catalyzed his recognition. A BoyÂ’s Will was completed in England, published by David Nutt in 1913. A convocation of critical recognition, introduction to other writers, and creative energy supported the 1914 English publication of FrostÂ’s second book, North of Boston, after which “FrostÂ’s reputation as a leading poet had been firmly established in England, and Henry Holt of New York had agreed to publish his books in America.” Accolades met his return to America and by 1917 a move to Amherst “launched him on the twofold career he would lead for the rest of his life: teaching whatever “subjects” he pleased at a congenial collegeÂ… and “barding around,” his term for “saying” poems in a conversational performance.” (ANB) By 1924 he had won the first of his eventual four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry (1931, 1937, and 1943). Frost spent his final decade and a half as “the most highly esteemed American poet of the twentieth century” with a host of academic and civic honors to his credit. Two years before his death he became the first poet to read in the program of a U.S. Presidential inauguration (Kennedy, January 1961). Bibliographic reference: Crane A3.

        Porträt eines Mädchens mit Trachtenhaube

      - Technik: Bleistift auf Papier. Beschriftung: unten links signiert: "Fritz Erler", verso bezeichnet: "Sonntags gezeichnet, beim Kartoffelschälen in (.). der Haubenrand ultramarin blau, schön kontrastierend zu dem tiefen (.) Braun des Gesichts u. der gelben Bordüren d. Brust (.)". Grösse: 30,4 x 23,4 cm (Darstellung). Beschreibung: Diese Zeichnung von Fritz Erler zeugt von einem empfindsamen Künstler, der Melancholie und Anmut zu verbinden vermag. Anders als die dem Jugendstil zuzurechnenden frühen Wandbilder und Gemälde der Zeit bis etwa 1914, geht es in dieser Zeichnung nicht um Stilisierung und Flächigkeit, sondern um emotionales Nachspüren und Ergründen. Mit den großformatigen und häufig theatralisch inszenierten Arbeiten der späteren Zeit hat das Blatt ebenfalls wenig gemein. Möglicherweise ist seine Entstehung in jene Zeit anzusetzen, in der Erler sich häufig in Holzhausen am Ammersee aufhielt. In den 1910er Jahren war er dort anzutreffen. In dieser Zeit beschäftigte er sich wiederholt mit Themen und Personen aus dem ländlichen Umfeld. Von den ersten Illustrationen für die Zeitschrift „Jugend" über erste Gesamtkunstwerke wie die Gestaltung des Musikzimmers der Villa Neisser in Breslau, von der Gründung der Künstlervereinigung „Die Scholle" bis zu den Kriegsbildern des Ersten Weltkrieges: Erlers Kunst umspannt viele Bereich und Formen. Bei diesem Umfang und dem hohen Grad an Stilisierung in seinen Arbeiten ist die vorliegende Zeichnung ein wunderbarer Ausdruck spontaner Künstlerbegeisterung. Wie hingehaucht erscheinen die dünnen und sanften Bleistiftstriche auf dem rötlichen Papier. Ganz vorsichtig umreißt er die Konturen des Gesichts und füllt behutsam die Schatten mit einer breiten Schraffur. Auch wenn er in der rückseitigen Aufschrift großen Wert auf den Reiz des Farbzusammenklangs legt, so ist doch gerade die Konzentration auf den bloßen Strich bestens geeignet, die emotionale Einfühlung zu vermitteln. 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]

        Lettres à l'Amazone. Avec un frontispice gravé sur bois par P.-Eug. Vibert.

      Paris: Georges Crès et Cie, les Maitres du Livre, 30 March 1914 - Octavo. Finely bound by Cochard in near-contemporary green crushed morocco, spine in compartments with raised bands and title gilt direct, gilt-tooled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. With the original wrappers bound in. Spine sunned, bound-in wrappers a little marked, excellent condition. Frontispiece illustration in two states, one on thick plate, the other on chartreuse paper. First edition, first printing, copy 112 of 112 copies on papier vergé chartreuse, from an edition of 1,075 copies in total. This copy, with the original chartreuse wrappers bound in, has been handsomely bound by Cochard. Gourmont's "Letters to the Amazon" are the result of the symbolist poet, who had been stricken and disfigured by lupus vulgaris, meeting in 1910, and for four years corresponding intensely and devotedly with, the "Amazon" of Paris, Natalie Clifford Barney (1876-1972), one of the most influential lesbian and feminist writers of the period. Her life inspired Radclyffe Hall's The Well of Loneliness, and her Paris salon at 20 rue Jacob was for 60 years the crucible of Left Bank culture (guests included Colette, Pierre Louÿs, Mata Hari, Auguste Rodin, Ezra Pound, Jean Cocteau, T. S. Eliot, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Rainer Maria Rilke, Rabindranath Tagore, Nancy Cunard, Peggy Guggenheim, Caresse and Harry Crosby, Sylvia Beach, and Isadora Duncan, to name but few). Barney promoted women's writing and formed an Académie des femmes in response to the all-male Académie française, while also supporting and inspiring male writers such as Gourmont. These letters are a classic of French literature, and were much reprinted - this however is the scarce first edition in the alluring chartreuse issue. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Snapshot Album.

      Alexandria, 1914. - 40 photographs. Slightly larger or smaller than 100 x 70 mm. One photo (230 x 150 mm) laid in. Brief captions inked beneath almost all of the photos. Album made of thin flexible card. 4to. The compiler appears to have resided at 1 Rue Rosette. Some of the photos were apparently taken from his balcony which according to one of the photos must have been slightly up the other side of a street from the Mohamed-Aly Club. Some of the photos show the interior of the compilers residence (entrance hall, salon, porcelain cabinets). The large photo probably shows the compiler and his bride emerging from their wedding and passing under upraised sticks held by young soldiers or older Boy Scouts. - Some fading. Cover chipped around edges and creased.

Original red cloth, titles to upper board and spine gilt.Light scorch-marks too endpapers from a former "protector", spine very gently rolled and showing some very typical fading but all in all a very decent, very honest copy indeed. With the armorial bookplate to the front pastedown of John Wynford, whilst still Baron St Davids. Wynford, soldier and parliamentarian, was elevated to Viscount in 1918. Since his later bookplates record this preferment, we can be confident that Wynford was the primary owner. From a total printing of 1250 some 506 were sent to Huebsch for publication in the US, making this one of just 746 of the earliest issue of what Graham Greene once described as the greatest book of short stories in the language. Unsophisticated copies in presentable condition are uncommon,examples with secure early provenance even more so.[29]

        Omar Khayyam.

      Cambridge: Galloway & Porter, 1914 - Large octavo. Original black cloth, titles and decoration gilt to spine and front cover, top edge gilt. Very slight bronzing to some of the titles on the front cover, some trivial rubbing to the ends and corners, some very mild marks to cloth, internally sound and fresh, an excellent copy. Illustrated title, 15 plates with text and illustration, 15 plates with illustration and captioned tissue guards. First Sett edition, one of 250 copies printed, of this scarce privately printed Rubaiyat illustrated by Parsee artist Mera Ben Kavas Sett. In his lengthy foreword Sett stakes his claim that his Rubaiyat "is original in being the interpretation of a Persian (Parsee)", and also notes that "Some of the English publishers found the work "too shocking" and "one likely to hurt the susceptibility of the decent-minded English people". They were ready to bring out my Omar if I changed a few pictures at their dictate and tastes, but I would not so much as a single line or a dot. It seems the English (according to the publishers) would rather have the conventional fig-leaf than a cluster of roses. I stated my case to my generous father. With his usual kindness and generosity, he offered to stand the piper to the tune of a private publication." Sett's Omar made sufficient impression to receive the encomium of Rupert Brooke (who died early in 1915): "If Mr Sett has not been universally acclaimed as the greatest draughtsman and decorator living, the fault lies with his own exclusive and publicity shunning nature. His Omar will have the pride of place in my library". [Attributes: First Edition]

        Lettres a l'Amazone. Avec un frontispice gravé sur bois par P.-Eug. Vibert.

      Paris: Georges Crès et cie, les Maitres du Livre, 30 March 1914 - Octavo. Finely bound by Cochard in near-contemporary green crushed morocco, spine in compartments with raised bands and title gilt direct, gilt-tooled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. With the original wrappers bound in. Spine sunned, bound-in wrappers a little marked, excellent condition. Frontispiece illustration in two states, one on thick plate, the other on chartreuse paper. First edition, first printing, copy 112 of 112 copies on papier vergé chartreuse, from an edition of 1,075 copies in total. This copy, with the original chartreuse wrappers bound in, has been handsomely bound by Cochard. Gourmont's "Letters to the Amazon" are the result of the symbolist poet, who had been stricken and disfigured by lupus vulgaris, meeting in 1910, and for four years corresponding intensely and devotedly with, the "Amazon" of Paris, Natalie Clifford Barney (1876-1972), one of the most influential lesbian and feminist writers of the period. Her life inspired Radclyffe Hall's The Well of Loneliness, and her Paris salon at 20 rue Jacob was for 60 years the crucible of Left Bank culture (guests included Colette, Pierre Louÿs, Mata Hari, Auguste Rodin, Ezra Pound, Jean Cocteau, T. S. Eliot, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Rainer Maria Rilke, Rabindranath Tagore, Nancy Cunard, Peggy Guggenheim, Caresse and Harry Crosby, Sylvia Beach, and Isadora Duncan, to name but few). Barney promoted women's writing and formed an Académie des femmes in response to the all-male Académie française, while also supporting and inspiring male writers such as Gourmont. These letters are a classic of French literature, and were much reprinted - this however is the scarce first edition in the alluring chartreuse issue. [Attributes: First Edition]
