Luigi Russolo (Portogruaro 1885 - Cerro Laveno 1947)
1916. Acquaforte misure: mm 98 x 69 Artista eclettico; compositore, inventore e pittore italiano. Sin da piccolo si dedicò a studi musicali che sfociarono nel manifesto L'arte dei rumori (1916) in cui si teorizzava l'impiego del rumore per arrivare a comporre una musica costituita da rumori puri invece che suoni armonici, mediante l'utilizzo di nuovi strumenti musicali: gli intonarumori costruiti dall'artista stesso. Accanto all'interesse per la musica c'è poi quello per la pittura. Non si conoscono sue opere pittoriche anteriori al 1909, anno in cui conobbe Boccioni e Carrà e con i quali firmò il Manifesto dei pittori futuristi. Come per i suoi colleghi anche per Russolo un quadro non doveva proporsi come pura rappresentazione del reale, ma raccogliere l'essenza della molteplicità delle cose che contemporaneamente accadono. "Per dipingere una figura non bisogna farla: bisogna farne l'atmosfera...." (Manifesto Tecnico della Pittura Futurista). L'artista nel cogliere un momento intimo, si rifà sicuramente al Boccioni. Impressione eccellente, dai neri decisi che caratterizzano soprattutto i volti e creano movimento nelle posture. Ampi margini oltre la battuta del rame. Ottimo stato di conservazione. Firmato a matita "LRussolo". Bibliografia: di A. Gasparotto (a cura di), F. Tagliapietra (a cura di) Luigi Russolo. Vita e opere di un futurista, 2006.

Luigi Russolo (Portogruaro 1885 - Cerro Laveno 1947)

"Per dipingere una figura non bisogna farla: bisogna farne l'atmosfera...." (Manifesto Tecnico della Pittura Futurista). Viene rappresentato in quest'opera uno spaccato di vita comune; persone che si aggirano per le strade di una città industriale. Sicuramente il tema trattato viene ripreso dalle opere di Boccioni. Impressione eccellente stampata con inchiostro bruno. La staticità dei profili delle case è contrastata dal movimento del fumo che esce dalla fabbrica. Ampi margini oltre la battuta del rame. Ottimo stato di conservazione. Firmata e intitola a matita "Tetti" e "LRussolo". Bibliografia: di A. Gasparotto (a cura di), F. Tagliapietra (a cura di) Luigi Russolo.

Harry Clarke was an acclaimed Irish stained-glass artist and book illustrator who was born in Dublin and was a leading figure in the Irish Arts and Crafts Movement. He died tragically of TB at the early age of 42 years. 'Mr. Clarke brings to Hans Andersen an entirely fresh interpretation, and he appeals to the intellectual emotions of art-lovers, who will find in his work satisfaction of their craving for new and unconventional treatment of themes which may never be exhausted while the spirit of life exists in art. Mr. Clarke is a craftsman who devotes to each drawing an infinity of pains which is little less … [Click Below for Full Description]

MAYAKOVSKY, Vladimir Vladimirovich.
Petrograd Parus, 1916. First edition; 8vo (22 x 15 cm); 116pp., pencil annotations throughout; original printed wrappers, edges a little frayed, a good copy. a excellent example of the first edition - from the library of avant-garde artist Mikahil Larionov Simple like mooing was Maykovsky's first major collection of poetry to be published and affirmed his position as a central figure in Russian Futurism. The title of the work stems from a line in his tragic play Vladimir Mayakovsky, written, directed and performed by the poet himself in 1914. The protagonist, a poet, stands before the audience and uses the prologue to discuss themes of anti-aestheticism, primitivism and the dawn of a new man. It is the arrival of this new age, he says, which will bring about a simplification of language. He promises that the new collective soul will be revealed in words as 'simple as mooing' and that this shall bring eternal happiness. The Russian Avant-Garde Book, 134.

Pink rubber stamp "Vertraulich" ("Confidential") to first leaf. Introductory text followed by German-language wanted briefs and photographs. Very good. This alphabetical directory, with brief biographies and portraits, documents nearly 1400 persons accused or suspected of engaging in treasonous activities abroad against the Austro-Hungarian government and, in particular, the war effort. The suspects include Czech citizens living abroad - in Austria, Germany, France, Russia, North America and elsewhere, but also some foreigners who expressed sympathy for the Czech cause. Among the best known figures are the future president of the first Czechoslovak Republic, T. G. Masaryk, the writer Jaroslav Hašek (then based in Kiev), and the brothers Vojta and Edvard Beneš.A one-line entry also mentions James Joyce, then still largely unknown in the region, who lived in Zurich during WWI. Joyce's correspondence was already being monitored by Tyrolean censors, until an exculpatory report was made by Austrian military attache William von Einem in 1916. It is not known, however, whether von Einem's report also voided the open arrest warrant for Joyce in the Austrian lands, based on this publication. Joyce, who had lived in Pula and Trieste previously, moved to Switzerland during WWI, where he worked on Ulysses. He left Zurich for Trieste in 1919, settling in France the following year.

[Mexican Revolution]. [Border War]
[Veracruz; El Paso; other locations in Mexico and Texas, 1916. Very good.. 172 real photo postcards, most approximately 3.5 x 5.5 inches. The preponderance of images crisp and clean, with only some light edge wear to cards. A few cards with more moderate wear or remnants of previous mounting on rear. A number of postcards filled out in a variety of hands. Many images captioned in the negative. A extensive and affecting collection of over one hundred seventy photo postcards that document episodes of American involvement in the Mexican Revolution of the 1910s. The majority of the cards present here depict scenes from the occupation of Veracruz by the United States, which took place from April to November 1914. The group includes many images from the early stages of the invasion, including the raising of the first American flag in Veracruz, the first army train, and the first marine landing party dated "Apr. 21" in the negative. The set also includes numerous postcards documenting Mexican resistance to U.S. forces, most notably casualties of war and architectural damage. Several postcards show the devastation to both the exterior and interior of the Veracruz Naval Academy, the site of the so-called "Battle of Veracruz," where the Americans were temporarily stymied by Mexican cadets who had barricaded themselves inside. U.S. battleships intervened by shelling the building with their long guns, and U.S. forces were then able to take control of the city. Among the related scenes of note are the seizure of the local police station by the American army and a team from the USS … [Click Below for Full Description]

A very good copy of this poorly produced book, in the dust jacket, a couple of short closed tears to spine ends, slight nicks, chips and creasing to extremities. First edition, first impression. This is a collection of 12 articles in which Wells offers his predictions on the political and economic changes that will come to the world in the wake of the First World War. Wells "boldly opened What is Coming?, a new book of prophesy and forecast, by invoking his modest scientific training again as one of the most important factors in his reliability as a prophet. 'But for some of us moderns, who have been touched with the spirit of science, prophesying is almost a habit of mind"' (Feir, p. 176). Gordon D. Feir, H. G. Wells at the End of His Tether (2005).

Rockefeller, Erastus Corning, and Marshall Field; with grounds comprising twenty-two square miles. "Since that time, good taste, energy and wealth have turned beautiful Jekyl island into a little paradise of comfort and health giving relaxation." Charles Lanier, whose name appears on the title page, was the long-time president of the Jekyl Island Club. In 1910 the club was the site of the secret meeting at which the Federal Reserve was established. The club continued until the end of 1942. The photogravures depict club house and cottages, golf course and grounds, and other scenes. Three depict cycling and beach sports; three are hunting related; one view of golfing shows golfers with their African American caddies; and two portray John Cain, an African-American driver. This sumptuous illustrated guide to the club was first issued in 1911; only the Morgan Library hold a copy of this edition; a slightly revised third edition was produced in 1919. All are RARE.

First edition; 8vo (22 x 15 cm); 116pp., pencil annotations throughout; original printed wrappers, edges a little frayed, a good copy. a excellent example of the first edition - from the library of avant-garde artist Mikahil Larionov Simple like mooing was Maykovsky's first major collection of poetry to be published and affirmed his position as a central figure in Russian Futurism. The title of the work stems from a line in his tragic play Vladimir Mayakovsky, written, directed and performed by the poet himself in 1914. The protagonist, a poet, stands before the audience and uses the prologue to discuss themes of anti-aestheticism, primitivism and the dawn of a new man. It is the arrival of this new age, he says, which will bring about a simplification of language. He promises that the new collective soul will be revealed in words as 'simple as mooing' and that this shall bring eternal happiness. The Russian Avant-Garde Book, 134.

"The Family Physician/In Sickness And In Health" Antique Book By Roosevelt 1916. Written by J. West Roosevelt, this book is a genuine one of a kind. It is copyright 1896, published 1916.

Siebe, Josephine, Schriftstellerin (1870?1941)
Leipzig, 1913 bis, 1916. Zusammen 17? SS. auf 9 Bll. Gr.-4to und gr.-8vo. An die Schriftstellerin und Frauenrechtlerin Anna Plothow (1853?1925): ?Zwischen den Sommertagen in denen Sie hier waren und heute liegt so viel daß ich mich manchmal besinnen muß auf die Zeit vorher, als man noch allerlei wichtig nahm was heute vergessen ist. Aber wenn auch Dinge im Nebel der Vergessenheit versinken, die Menschen bleiben doch, u. Sie gehören zu denen an die ich im neuen Jahr denke. Mit dem Vorsatz, einmal einen Gruß zu senden. Wenn sich der Gruß heute zum Brief auswächst so liegt es an der leidigen Redaktionsarbeit. Beim Zusammenstellen des Materials für das neue Märchenbuch (es erscheint im Herbst 15) fiel mir Ihr Name ein, hinter dem die freundliche Verheißung steht ?Beitrag versprochen? [...]? (a. d. Br. v. 16. Januar 1915). ? Die gebürtige Leipzigerin lebte nach einer Tätigkeit im Photogeschäft ihres Vaters als freie Schriftstellerin zurückgezogen in ihrer Heimatstadt. ?Seit 1904 war sie Redakteurin der Frauenbeilage des ?Leipziger Tagblatts?, später des Frauenteils von ?Reclams Universum?. Siebe schrieb u. a. ?Oberheudorfer Buben- und Mädelgeschichten. 16 heitere Erzählungen? (1908) und ?Das Haus im Walde. Erzählung aus dem grünen Wald. Eine Kindergeschichte? (1931)? (DBE). ?Am bekanntesten wurde sie jedoch mit ihrer Reihe der sieben Kasperle-Bücher, die zwischen 1921 und 1930 entstanden und noch bis Anfang der 90er Jahre immer wieder neu aufgelegt wurden? (Wikipedia, Abfrage v. 5. I. 2011).

This is a collection of 12 articles in which Wells offers his predictions on the political and economic changes that will come to the world in the wake of the First World War. Wells "boldly opened What is Coming?, a new book of prophesy and forecast, by invoking his modest scientific training again as one of the most important factors in his reliability as a prophet. 'But for some of us moderns, who have been touched with the spirit of science, prophesying is almost a habit of mind"' (Feir, p. 176). Gordon D. Feir, H. G. Wells at the End of His Tether (2005).

Hi, Here we have a rare 1916 Original Hardback Wisden, in Very Good Condition. The 21st Wisden Hardback and the most expensive of the 20th Century. The rarest or second rarest since 1900. I have been agornising over which of two 1916s to keep as they are both in such amazing condition but to sum up this Wisden is as nice as the one I own in my master set. The lettering is always an issue (if you like shiny gold leaf) on 1916s , i guess they were rationed on the gold leaf in 1916, however the front board has very good gilt for a 1916. The spine is faded and no dot after the year which is correct. Small name to first page corner. The boards are very good , small line mark to the corner at the top of the front board but other than that , nice clean boards. Inside the hinges are very good, both are springy! Amazingly clean inside including the yellow pastedowns. Minimal foxing. No restoration. A lovely book. Rare,
