        "Zeppelin"

      Paris: [Mabileau & Co.], 1915. Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling in the margins and the image. Small loss upper right edge. This LZ2 was built sometime between 1910 and 1914. Five airships of this design operated by Delag, safely carried 35,000 passengers between German cities. This was the first passenger air service in the world. 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 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 Montaut, Ernest's wife, joined him in his work 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 also used the name "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.

Die Holzstöcke aus dem Jahr 1915 sind 1971 nochmals in einer Auflage von 100 abgezogen worden. Christian Schad (1894 - 1982). 1913 Studium an der Kunstakademie in München. Seine Bilder und Holzschnitte sind vom Expressionismus geprägt. Während des Ersten Weltkriegs entzieht sich Schad dem Militärdienst durch Flucht nach Zürich. In Zürich findet er Anschluß an die Dada-Bewegung um Hugo Ball (1886-1927), Hans Arp und Tristan Tzara (1896-1963). Er ist zusammen mit dem Schriftsteller Walter Serner (1889-1942) Hg. der Kunstzeitschrift "Sirius". Erste eigene Ausstellung in Zürich. 1917 übersiedelt er nach Genf. Mit Hilfe von lichtempfindlichen Fotoplatten entwickelt er ein Verfahren zur Herstellung von Konturbildern. Diese Photogramme als künstlerisches Ausdrucksmittel gelten als eine der größten Innovationen der Kunst im 20. Jahrhundert. Tzara prägt für diese "Photographien ohne Kamera" den Begriff der Schadographien. 1920-1925 lebt Schad mit Serner in Rom und Neapel. Seine Bilder sind beeinflußt von der italienischen Malerei der Renaissance.1923 heiratet Schad, 1925 übersiedlung nach Wien. Ab 1925 wird Schad zusammen mit Otto Dix und George Grosz zum Hauptvertreter der Neuen Sachlichkeit. Seine in diesem Stil gemalten Bilder thematisieren das nächtliche Großstadtleben. In zahlreichen Porträts zeichnet Schad ein Bild des Lebensstils der "Goldenen Zwanziger". Er porträtiert Künstler, Intellektuelle und Aristokraten, mit denen er in Wien und Berlin verkehrt. 1928 Übersiedelung nach Berlin. Die meisten seiner für die Große Berliner Kunstausstellung 1930 eingereichten Werke werden abgelehnt. Nach der Machtübernahme der Nationalsozialisten zieht sich Schad zunehmend ins Privatleben zurück. Er führt nur noch private Porträtaufträge aus. 1936 "Fantastic Art, Dada, Surrealism" im Museum of Modern Art in New York zeigt seine frühen Holzschnitte und Schadographien.1942/43 Zerstörung seines Berliner Ateliers durch Bombenangriffe.1943 übersiedelt er nach Aschaffenburg.

        Anti-Semitic Lynching Photograph - "The End of Leo Frank, Hung by a Mob at Marietta, GA., Aug. 17, 1915"

      Marietta, Georgia, 1915. Photograph. Real photograph postcard showing the lynching of Leo Frank. Horizontal crease, otherwise in nice shape. This photograph documents one of the most infamous lynchings in American history, that of Jewish pencil factory superintendent Leo Frank, who was convicted in 1913 for murdering his young employee, 13-year-old Mary Phagan. On 26 April 1913, Mary Phagan was found strangled to death in the basement of the National Pencil Company factory in Atlanta after having apparently been raped. Two semi-literate letters found at the scene cast suspicion upon the African-American night watchman, Newt Lee, however when the police interviewed James "Jim" Conley, a African-American janitor who was also under scrutiny, Conley claimed that Frank had killed Phagan and then paid him to write the letters and hide the body in the basement. In exchange for his testimony, Conley was only sentenced to one year in jail as an accomplice after the fact. Frank was convicted and sentenced to death based upon Conley's testimony, however many believed that he was innocent. In time, additional evidence was found that indicated Conley had likely acted alone, and Georgia Governor John M. Stanton commuted Frank's sentence to life imprisonment. Although Atlanta had a reputation as a welcoming and hospitable home for its large Jewish community, anti-Georgia publicity (funded by the American Jewish Committee) and pro-Frank national newspaper coverage (especially by the New York Times) throughout the trial and appeals process inflamed latent anti-Semitic feelings within the city. Shortly after the commutation, a semi-secret gang of prominent Georgians (including a former governor and the mayor of Marietta) launched a night assault on the state prison at Milledgeville where they successfully kidnapped Leo Frank. Frank was taken to Fry's Gin, just east of Marietta, where he was murdered. Although a photographer recorded the lynching, the pictures were kept somewhat secret as they clearly showed the lynch mob, however real photo postcards were printed and sold to locals at Marietta stores for 25 cents each. An exceptionally scarce piece of anti-Semitic Americana. The Rare Book Hub shows only one record of a Leo Frank real photo postcard having been sold at auction; one sold at a Sotheby's Photograph Auction for $3,125 on 3 October 2012.

        ALS to William Edward Norris, from 21 Carlyle Mansions, August 4th, 1915.

      1915 1915 - 43 lines on both sides of a single quarto sheet of headed paper. An affectionate letter from James to his friend and fellow author William Edward Norris, written only 7 days after he had become a British citizen and seven months before his death in February 1916. James had been overwhelmed by the 'avalanche of those [letters] I have received, all of the friendliest and most welcoming kind' that followed his changing of national allegiance. Angry at the Americans' refusal to support the Great War and vexed at the practical difficulties of being an alien in Britain - after the outbreak of war James needed official permission to go to his house in Rye - James swore allegiance to the King on July 26, witnessed by his friends, the Prime Minister Herbert Asquith, Edmund Gosse, George Prothero and J.B. Pinker. 'Of course I could do absolutely and utterly nothing but make it [the decision] . I am not sprouting into new feathers and union-jacks - all that was long ago discounted'. For some time James had wrestled with his identity; pushed away from America and drawn towards his adopted land. As he puts it himself in a letter to Gosse on the day of his patriation: 'the process [of becoming officially British] has only shown me what I virtually was - so that it's rather disappointing in respect to acute sensation. I haven't any, I blush to confess!'. James was greatly affected by the outbreak of war in 1914, his anguish visible in a letter to Rhoda Broughton: 'Black and hideous to me is the tragedy that gathers and I'm sick beyond cure to have lived to see it'. To Norris he writes: 'I can't, I find, with the public situation what it is, face the solitude & sequestration of Rye - it makes me eat my heart out'. 'I don't want anything kept up damn it!' James continues, 'but the country and you!' This was not the first time James had written to Norris to describe his evolving feelings of nationality. In a letter dated February 4, 1896 he wrote: 'The American outbreak [in reference to the Venezuela Crisis of 1895] has darkened all my sky - and made me feel among many things, how long I have lived away from my native land, how long I shall live away from it and how little I understand it today'. The great warmth and affection shown to Norris stemmed from a friendship dating back over a decade. It was Norris who, in 1894, provided moral support to James after the disastrous and violent reaction to the first performance of his play Guy Domville. In a state of melancholy James 'bolted' to Torquay, where Norris lived, spending many days recuperating with his friend, 'the gentlest and sweetest of men'. William Norris, 1847-1925, was a prolific and successful author; his first novel Heaps of Money, 1877, was followed by the vastly popular Mademoiselle De Mersac, 1880. His final novel, Trevalion was published in 1925, the year of his death. PLEASE NOTE: For customers within the UK and the EU, this item is subject to VAT. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter signed "U Giordano" to the journalist Marescotti.

      3 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Dated April 5, 1915. In black ink. On stationery with "Villa Fedora Baveno" embossed at head. In Italian (with translation). Giordano will have Mr. Carozzelli, of the Sonzogno publishing firm, send Marescotti a piano-vocal score and libretto of his opera, Madame Sans Gêne. He hopes that Marescotti, a critic, will write a few complementary things about the opera. "I'm glad that you speak about [the opera] with your competence, [which is] evident from the Encyclopedia, and I hope that this time you will want to write differently than before, a few flattering things for me." Very slightly worn and soiled; creased at folds. . "Giordano handled the late Romantic, emotionally vehement idiom of the giovane scuola with ease and fluency, being particularly skilful in weaving into his scores elements of local and historical colour... His stage sense is always sure, and his vocal writing unfailingly effective." Julien Budden in Grove Music Online. Giordano's opera, Madame Sans Gêne, was first performed at the Metropolitan Opera in New York on January 25, 1915. Marescotti was a critic for the journal, Musici e Musicisti, which was the organ of the Casa Ricordi. In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries a great rivalry existed between Ricordi and Sonzogno, the two most important Italian publishing firms of the period. This may explain why Marescotti had been critical of Giordano, whose works Sonzogno championed.

Mawson's account of the Australasian Antarctic Expedition in the "Aurora." Mawson made a solitary sledge journey of over 160 miles of the most treacherous and wind-lashed ice in Antarctica. The expedition systematically explored King George V Land and the Terre Adelie. It also charted the whole 2000 mile coastline from the Mertz Glacier and Garssberg, thereby connecting the discoveries of Wilkes and Dumont d'Urville, Scott and Drygalski. During a second sledging journey, however, Mawson's two companions perished and he was only just able to save his own life by dragging a sledge he'd cut in two to save weight back to Cape Denison. One of the most important works on Antarctica, quite scarce. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
