Konvolut der seltenen Zeitschrift (erschien von 1917-1921, in insgesamt 40 Nr. in 13 Heften). Die kaum noch aufzufindende anarchistische Zeitschrift Travens mit dem äußerst seltenen ersten Heft sowie der Vierfachnummer zur November-Revolution. - Der 1969 verstorbene Verfasser der B. Traven-Bücher gilt nach Heidemann, Recknagel u.a. als identisch mit dem Herausgeber und meist auch Verfasser des "Ziegelbrenner", der sich damals Ret Marut nannte.

Durch den "Ziegelbrenner" kam Traven (ca. 1882-1969) im April 1919 in der Münchener Räterepublik zu politischer Bedeutung.

(Buch: 19,4 x 12 cm und Mappe: 18, 2 x 13 cm) 8°.. Hayn/ Got. IX, 571. "Für die Freunde Beardsleys wurde dies Werkchen, von Gracian übertragen, in 350 bezeichneten Exemplaren mit [Reproduktionen der acht] Originalzeichnungen des Meisters gedruckt. Davon trägt dies die Nummer [handschriftlich] 20 [faksimilierte Signatur und handschriftlich mit Bleistift 'München 1917']". Mit rot und schwarz gedrucktem, illustriertem Doppeltitel, das Frontispiz und sieben weitere Illustrationen nach Beardsley, wie die Textseiten auf zweiseitig unbeschnittenes van Gelder-Bütten gedruckt und in der Seitenzählung mitgezählt. Die schlichte, etwas angeschmutzte Original-Pappmappe enthält einen zusätzlichen Druck, der im Buch nicht verwendet wurde, diese neun Japanabzüge von erfreulichster Erhaltung. Das geglättete, reich strukturierte Maroquin des Meistereinbandes am Rücken etwas aufgehellt und an den gerundeten Ecken und auf den Deckeln stellenweise minimal berieben. Auf den fliegenden Vorsätzen in den Rändern und den Falzen Bräunungen durch Abklatsch der Lederbordüren. Sehr schöner und aufwendiger Privatdruck, dessen Urheber den Bibliographen offensichtlich bis heute verborgen blieb. Die Biographin Benkovitz: "From his Venus and Thanhäuser, Beardsley's sexuality and his sexual practices can be assumed [p. 111]. (...) Beardsley drew for Dent The Return of Thannhäuser to the Venusberg. Dent told Mrs. Beardsley that 'all the spirit' in him was 'moved to depths by this most beautiful most pathetic drawing [p. 164]." (Miriam J. Benkovitz: Aubrey Beardsley. An Account of His Life. New York, G. P. Putnam's Sons 1981) "It is both Wagnerian (the minor character Titurel is named after the bass in Parsifal) and eighteenth-century, in token of which Beardsley kept switching its title between Venus and Tannhäuser[sic!] and Under the Hill. (It shares a veneral pun, as well as an eighteenth century charm of writing and lack of prurience about the pursuit of pleasure, with Fanny Hill.) As if the novel were a pencil drawing where he could impose one version on top of another, Beardsley changed its hero's name and style from the Abbe Aubrey to the Chevalier Tannhäuser to the Abbe Fanfreluche. He never finished the book or settled which of its versions was definitive because it was his personal erotic fantasy and to finish it would have been to relinquish life. He was his own hero, the Abbe (as he is simply called in the illustration); his initials 'A.B.', pronounced in French, say the word 'abbe' [p. 96, 98]." (Brigid Brophy: Beardsley and his world. London, Thames and Hudson 1976.) * Wenn Sie Ihre VISA oder EUROCARD/ MASTERCARD zur Zahlung nutzen möchten kontakten Sie uns bitte. *

        Ms. Brief mit eigenh. U.

      Waldenburg in Sachsen, 26. VII. 1917.. 1 S. auf Doppelblatt. Kl.-4to.. An den österreichischen Ministerpräsidenten Ernst von Seidler: "Eurer Exzellenz erlaube ich mir in der Anlage eine Denkschrift über Albanien zu übersenden. Da ich gewiss bin, dass die Zukunft meines schwergeprüften Landes allgemeines Interesse für die Mittelmächte und einen grossen Einfluss auf die Gestaltung eines dauernden Friedens auf der Balkanhalbinsel und damit auch in Europa haben wird, bitte ich die Schrift annehmen zu wollen [...]". - Nachdem die europäischen Großmächte Albanien auf der Konferenz von London 1913 als souveränen Staat anerkannt hatten, wurde Prinz Wilhelm zu Wied Anfang 1914 als Fürst von Albanien inthronisiert und regierte knapp sechs Monate bis zum 3. September 1914. Bei dem hier vorliegenden Schreiben handelt es sich wohl um ein Begleitschreiben zu jener Denkschrift ("Denkschrift über Albanien", Privatdruck, Berlin 1917), in der Wilhelm zu Wied, der niemals als Regent von Albanien abgedankt hatte, neben anderen Punkten seine Wiedereinsetzung als Fürst von Albanien forderte. - An neuerer Literatur siehe Hanns Christian Löhr, Die Gründung Albaniens, Wilhelm zu Wied und die Balkandiplomatie der Großmächte 1912-1914, Frankfurt a. M., 2010. - Etwas angestaubt.

About Very Good. A fine association copy of Sherwood Anderson's second book INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper: "Marietta Finley/With Regards and Good/Wishes/Sherwood Anderson." Marietta "Babs" Finley was a close friend of Anderson's who kept up a correspondence with him that was published in 1985 as LETTERS TO BAB: SHERWOOD ANDERSON TO MARIETTA D. FINLEY, 1916-33. In a letter to William Sutton in 1962, Finley commented that Anderson habitually left carbon copies of WINESBURG stories with her when he visited her in Indianapolis: "These I kept and once, I recall, he was camping out in the Adirondacks at Chateaugay and there was a fire in his tent. He lost some of the WINESBURG stories and asked me to send the copies I had." A silver print photograph of a fairly young Anderson is partly taped at the corners to the front pastedown.

        BALLETS RUSSES. PROGRAMME. PARIS 1917. Les Ballets Russes a Paris. Représentations Exceptionelles avec le gracieux Concours des Artistes de M. Serge de Diaghilew. - Programme des Ballets Russes. Les Ballets Russes à Paris. Saison - Mai 1917. [Guillaume Apollinaire: Parade et l'Esprit nouveau].

      Paris, Mai 1917. Folio. Original patterned dust-wrapper; original illustrated extra wrappers; original illustrated wrappers for Théatre du Chatelet (drawing by André Marty on front, and advertisements on back) in grey and red; original illustrated coloured wrappers for Programme des Ballets Russes (front wrapper illustrated by Picasso with the Chinaman-costume from Parade). Slight soiling to dust-wrappers, and corners a bit bent, and a bit of light brownspotting to the different wrappers. All in all a very nice and well-preserved copy. Apart from the described wrappers and extra-wrappers, there are, in all, 24 leaves with -mostly photographic- illustrations and 6 leaves of text.. Scarce original printing of this seminal avantgarde-publication, the May 1917 Théatre du Chatelet- publication that presents Diaghilev's Ballets Russes in Paris - here containing the entire separate publication mainly devoted to Jean Cocteau's groundbreaking ballet Parade - being one of the most important publications in the history of modern art. It is here, in his presentation-article to Parade that Apollinaire coins the term surrealism and thus lays the foundation for the seminal cultural movement that Bréton came to lead. Furthermore, the ballet Parade represents a historical collaboration between several of the leading artistic minds of the early twentieth century: Erik Satie, Jean Cocteau, Pablo Picasso, Léonide Massine, and Serge Diaghilev, and is famous, not only for its contents and its music, but also for its magnificent costumes designed by Picasso, the drawings of which are presented in the present publication for the first time - most famously the front cover for the Parade-programme, which depicts the Costume de Chinois du ballet PARADE/ Aquarelle de Picasso, an etching with original, stunning pochoir-colouring. It is the 1917 ballet Parade - the first of the modern ballets - originally presented for the first time in the present publication, that marks Picasso's entry into the public and bourgeois institutions of ballet and theatre and presents Cubism on the stage for the first time. The present publication constitutes an outright revolution in the history of art, theatre, and ballet.Several variants of this spectacular publication exist, but the one we have here is as original and complete as it comes, containing the entire contents of the different variants. We not only have the extremely scarce and fragile dust-wrapper and the equally scarce illustrated coloured double-wrappers (front: Peinture de Picasso; back: Décor de Larionow pour le ballet BABA IAGA''), but also the entire 1917 Théatre du Chatelet-programme (in original illustrated wrappers) with the entire separate parade-issue -also entitled Programme des Ballets Russes- (also in original illustrated wrappers), with more than 20 leaves of photographic illustrations containing pictures of the actors and actresses, also in their spectacular avant-garde-costumes, Bakst's portrait of Leonide Massine, Picasso's portrait of Stavinski, Bakst's portrait of Picasso, Picasso and Massine in the ruins of Pompei, Picasso's drawings of a scene from Parade and of Massine, as well as several (mostly humorous) advertisements. But more importantly, we have, apart from the above-mentioned famous Chinaman by Picasso, in original pochoir-colouring, the other famous etching by Picasso Costume d'acrobate du ballet Parade/ Aquarelle de Picasso, also in original pochoir-colouring (bright blue), the seminal presentation-article by Apollinaire, which coins the term surrealism (see bottom of description for full translation of this groundbreaking preface), the two Les Femmes de Bonne Humeur-figures by Bakst, Constanza and Battista, printed and heightened in gold (pochoir), the printed costume by Larionow, Les contes russes, which is with original bright red and blue pochoir-colouring, and the Le Mendiant-costume by Bakst for Parade, and, of course, the texts by Bakst (on choreography and décor), Georges-Michel (Ballets Russes after the War), as well as the texts for the various ballets (listing the actors and their rôles as well as a resume of the plot). Tact in audacity consists in knowing how far we may go too far. Jean Cocteau, poet, writer, and arts advocate, made this statement in his 1918 manifesto, The Cock and Harlequin. Cocteau, in collaboration with Erik Satie and Pablo Picasso, discovered how far to go too far in the circus-like ballet Parade-one of the most revolutionary works of the twentieth century. Parade incorporates elements of popular entertainment and uses extra-musical sounds, such as the typewriter, lottery wheel, and pistol, combining them with the art of ballet. Cocteau wrote the scenario for the one-act ballet and contracted the other artists. Satie wrote the score to the ballet, first in a piano four-hands version and then in full orchestration, while Picasso designed the curtain, set, and costumes. Later, Léonide Massine, a dancer with the Ballet Russes, was brought in as the choreographer. Serge Diaghilev's Ballet Russes premiered the ballet Parade on May 18, 1917. The program notes for the ballet were written by the poet Apollinaire. They became a manifesto of l'esprit nouveau or the new spirit which was taking hold in Paris during the early twentieth-century. Apollinaire described the ballet Parade as surrealistic, and in doing so created a term which would develop into an important artistic school. (Tracy A. Doyle, Erik Satie's ballet PARADE, p. 1).When the French poet and army officer Guillaume Apollinaire wrote the program notes For Parade, he created the manifesto of the l'esprit nouveau - the new spirit. Cocteau had called the ballet realistic, but Apollinaire took it an important step further and described it as surrealistic, thus coining a term that would soon develop into an important artistic movement. With Picasso, Apollinaire had established the aesthetic principals of Cubism and was considered a leader in the European avant-garde. ENGLISH TRANSLATION OF APOLLINAIRE'S PROGRAMME NOTES TO PARADE: Definitions of Parade are blossoming everywhere, like the lilac bushes of this tardy spring...It is a scenic poem transposed by the innovative musician Erik Satie into astonishingly expressive music, so clear and simple that it seems to reflect the marvelously lucid spirit of France. The cubist painter Picasso and the most daring of today's choreographers, Léonide Massine, have here consummately achieved, for the first time, that alliance between painting and dance, between the plastic and mimetic arts, that is a herald of the more comprehensive art to come. There is nothing paradoxical about this. The Ancients, in whose lives music played such an important role, were totally unaware of harmony, which constitutes the very basis of modern music. This new alliance - I say new, because until now scenery and costumes were linked only by factitious bonds - has given rise, in Parade, to a kind of surrealism, which I consider to be the point of departure for a whole series of Manifestations of the New Spirit that is making itself felt today and that will certainly appeal to our best minds. We may expect it to bring about profound changes in our arts and manners through universal joyfulness, for it is only natural, after all, that they keep pace with scientific and industrial progress. Having broken with the choreographic tradition cherished by those who used to be known, in Russia, under the strange name 'balletomanes', Massine has been careful not to yield to the temptation of pantomime. He has produced something totally new-a marvelously appealing kind of dance, so true, so lyrical, so human, and so joyful that it would even be capable (if it were worth the trouble) of illuminating the terrible black sun of Dürer's Melancholy. Jean Cocteau has called this a realistic ballet. Picasso's cubist costumes and scenery bear witness to the realism of his art. This realism - or this cubism, if you will - is the influence that has most stirred the arts over the past ten years. The costumes and scenery in Parade show clearly that its chief aim has been to draw the greatest possible amount of aesthetic emotion from objects. Attempts have often been made to return painting to its barest elements. In most of the Dutch painters, in Chardin, in the impressionists, one finds hardly anything but painting. Picasso goes further than any of them. This is clearly evident in Parade, a work in which one's initial astonishment is soon replaced by admiration. Here the aim is, above all, to express reality. However, the motif is not reproduced but represented-more precisely, it is not represented but rather suggested by means of an analytic synthesis that embraces all the visible elements of an object and, if possible, something else as well: an integral schematization that aims to reconcile contradictions by deliberately renouncing any attempt to render the immediate appearance of an object. Massine has Adapted himself astonishingly well to the discipline of Picasso's art. He has identified himself with it, and his art has become enriched with delightful inventions, such as the realistic steps of the horse in Parade, Formed by two dancers, one of whom does the steps of the forelegs and the other those of the hind legs. The fantastic constructions representing the gigantic and surprising features of The Managers, far from presenting an obstacle to Massine's imagination, have, one might say, served to give it a liberating impetus. All in all, Parade will change the ideas of a great many spectators. They will be surprised, that is certain; but in a most agreeable way, and charmed as well; Parade will reveal to them all the gracefulness of the Modern movements, a gracefulness they never suspected. A magnificent vaudeville Chinaman will make their imaginations soar; the American Girl cranking up her imaginary car will express the magic of their daily lives, whose wordless rites are celebrated with exquisite and astonishing agility by the acrobatin blue and white tights

        The Complete Writings

      Garden City. NY: Doubleday, Page and Company,, 1917. 14 volumes, large octavo (227 × 150 mm). Contemporary red half morocco by Stikeman, spines gilt in compartments, grey endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Extra-illustrated with two versions of each plate. A superb, fresh set, handsomely bound. The Memorial Edition, a deluxe limited edition, number 64 of 1075 copies signed by the publisher on the half title and extra-illustrated with two versions of each plate, including a colour version of each frontispiece. A very handsomely bound set. "An extremely popular and prolific writer, O. Henry is noted for his sentimental, semi-realistic stories dealing with the lives of modest people and his mastery of the surprise ending. A North Carolinian by birth, Porter moved to Texas, where he became the editor and publisher of the humorous magazine The Rolling Stone. When he was charged with embezzling funds from a bank, he fled to Central America, subsequently the scene of Cabbages and Kings (1904). He later returned and, although there has been much debate over his actual guilt, served over three years in the federal penitentiary. While in prison, he published the first of his O. Henry stories—'Whistling Dick's Christmas Stocking' (1899). Stories he heard in prison were the germs of many of his narratives. But his work is most identified with New York City, which he liked to call 'Bagdad-on-the-Subway.' Among the collections of O. Henry stories are The Four Million [1906, which contains his famous story 'The Gift of the Magi'], The Voice of the City (1908), and Options (1909)" (Benét's Reader's Encyclopedia).

      Alumni Ass'n of the Wahl-Henius Institute of Fermentology First Edition. From the Forward: "The historian must strive to penetrate into the daily doings and occupations of the people.He must settle down with them, help them brew the honey-mead, watch them till their fields and sow their millet, barley, oats, or spelt, bake their bread and from it learn to make their beer.he must join them at their gatherings, clannish meetings and convivial feasts, when they discuss their common affairs over a stoup of ale or a tankard of foaming beer.He must be able to picture for himself the days of the tavern and the tap-room, the 'Golden Age' of drinking and feasting.Then, and not until then, will we learn and understand the true history of beer and brewing from the early beginning to the present day." Inscribed to Joseph Bosch, founder of the Bosch Brewing Company in the state of Michigan, on the second endpaper: "To Mr. Jos Bosch with compliments of the author Octob 1917 John P. Arnold" Small 4to, 411 pages. Light bumping and edge-wear to the covers, Pages lightly browned. A very scarce association copy of an important work on the origins and history of beer brewing.
