Easton Press, 1919. As New, sealed in the original shrink-wrap. No bumped corners, damage, blemishes etc. Very Fine. EASTON PRESS LEATHER BOUND "The Outline of History" H.G. Wells A Slipcased Deluxe Limited Edition of only 400 (Sealed) An exceptional replica of the original, fully illustrated first edition, released in 24 installments from 1919 to 1920. Known for his prolific fictional writings filled with futuristic musings and speculations, H. G. Wells is often referred to as the "Father of Science Fiction." Yet one of his most successful and noted works was his non-fictional study of the history of mankind from the time when dinosaurs roamed the earth to the conclusion of World War I. The Outline of History is an expansive piece that has been reprinted many times in various forms, but the original publication was a 24-part series released from 1919 to 1920. This breath-taking reproduction of that first publication is comprised of two magnificent leather-bound volumes containing reprints of all the ads and illustrations (color and black and white) that were in the original printing.

Arthur Jerome Eddy
Chicago: A. C. McClurg. For consideration is a very nice 1919 publication of "CUBISTS and POST-IMPRESSIONISM," by ARTHUR JEROME EDDY. NEW and REVISED Edition with Twenty-Two Reproductions in Color of Cubist and Post-Impressionist Paintings, and Forty-Seven Half-Tone Illustrations. Copyright, 1914, by A.C. McClurg. Published March, 1914. This is the 2nd Edition published November, 1919, 253 pages in length. Original cloth-backed printed boards, top edges gilt. The lawyer, art collector, author and critic Arthur Jerome Eddy was a key figure in the first generation of Modern Art collectors. This, his most important book, is the first American work to promote these artists, and the first work to promote Wassily Kandinsky. Much of the information in the book was gained from the artists themselves, as Eddy was actively studying and collecting their works. Kandinsky had only been represented by one painting in the Armory Show the previous year: four are illustrated here ('Village Street'; Landscape with two poplars; Improvisations nos. 29 and 30). Other artists illustrated and discussed are: Boccioni, Brancusi, Cezanne, Derain, Duchamp, Gauguin, Gris, Klee, Leger, Lendbruck, Matisse, Picabia, Picasso, Rousseau, Russolo, Segonzac, Van Gogh, Villon, and Vlaminck. Eddy opens his text with the proclamation that "Since the exhibit at the Columbian Exposition (1893) nothing has happened in the world of American art so stimulating as the recent INTERNATIONAL EXHIBITION OF MODERN ART," i.e. the famed Armory Show. In 1931, a portion of Eddy's collection was donated to the Art Institute of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kruchyonykh, Alexei
Tiflis: 41 degrees, 1919. 32 pp. 22,5x15 cm. Original letterpress design by Ilia Zdanevich. The wrappers used to be folded. Tears and minor restoration, otherwise good. One of approximately 250 copies. The following book is one of the classic examples of the collaboration of the two greats of Russian and Georgian avant-garde, Iliazd and Kruchyonykh. Ilia Zdanevich (Iliazd) (1894-1975) was the founder of Russian book avant-garde, one of the apostles of futurism and dadaism, the founder of livre d'artiste tradition alongside Picasso, Ernst, Miro, etc. Alexei Kruchyonykh (1886-1968) the Enfant terrible of Russian poetry, one of the most eccentric and hard to understand personalities of universal avant-garde, the inventor of the new form of book production. Although the two have met in Saint Petersburg, it was in Tiflis where they formed together with poet/artist Igor Terentiev 'the duo of three idiots' and the press called '41 degrees'. The group left a certain mark in the history of the 20th century typographic design. At the time Kruchyonykh was interested in treating the body of the book as the intact organism allowing the full transparency between the artist and the author, almost erasing the line between the two. Iliazd was inspired by the idea of using typographic means to illustrate a book which is clearly seen in the design of the front wrapper of this particular edition. Iliazd, the artist who didn't draw, in this approach has foreseen the ideas of Alexei Gan and the book constructivism in which the main weapon of the book designer was anything that could be found in … [Click Below for Full Description]

BEREND, Charlotte (Anita Berber)
Berlin: Gurlitt Presse, 1919. Unbound. Very Good. Elephant folio. Set of eight 20" x 25" lithographs housed in a portfolio decorated paper over boards in quarter vellum gilt. Each lithograph is laid into a thick card matte, some of which show signs of foxing or light stains. The outer portfolio has splits along some folds, with wear and some staining, and the title sheet is edgeworn and foxed. Overall very good, the lithographs are near fine or better. The lithographs depict Anita Berber in various erotic poses taken from her theatrical personas, with hand-tinting added to several of the images. Of a total of 80 sets, this is number XIII [13] of only 40 sets Signed by Berend and highlighted in watercolor by her on four of the lithographs. Most of the sets are alleged to have been destroyed after the work was banned; only one other set with hand-tinting is known to survive. Berend was the first female artist to be inducted into the Berlin Session movement. Her specialty at this time was in creating prints of actors and dancers. According to *The Seven Addictions and Five Professions of Anita Berber, Weimar Berlin's "Priestess of Depravity"* by Mel Gordon: "Berend sketched eight canvases of the decadent dance personality. Each picture captured Anita in a new and more provocative pose. There was the terrified child in a short hoop-skirt which fell just below her naval, directing the viewer's eye straight to the startled figure's exposed vagina and lower torso; the smiling adolescent, bagging her nightgown from top to bottom, to display her boyish breasts as well as her pu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hawaii, San Francisco, New Jersey, and North Carolina, 1919. Softcover. Near Fine. An album of more than 275 photographs of Germans held at two American Internment camps during World War I. Small quarto. Measuring 13" x 10.25". String-tied black cloth over paper boards with "Photographs" on the front in gilt. Silver gelatin photographs measuring from 2.5" x 2" to 7.5" x 9.75", but most 4.5"x 3.5". Many of the photos are captioned in German on the rear, though damage to the corner mounts prevents us from check them all. Overall near fine with only light rubbing and bumping at the edges of the album; the photos fine though several are loose. Upon Congress's declaration of war with German on April 6, 1917, the Bureau of Immigration enacted a series of raids on German merchant ships anchored in U.S. ports. These "enemy aliens" were transported to several temporary internment camps before being sent to a permanent location in Hot Springs, North Carolina for the remainder of the war. The waning resort town of just 650 swelled to nearly 3000 with ship's officers rooming at the Mountain Park Hotel, while the rest of the men stayed in hastily build barracks on the grounds nearby. Though the camp was under guard, the security was minimal. The internees occupied their time playing sports, putting on plays, and building an elaborate miniature German village from materials they could gather on site such as flattened tin cans and scraps of lumber. When victory was declared the prisoners were transferred to Fort Oglethorpe in Georgia before returning home. As for the camp, a flood dama … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hawaii, San Francisco, New Jersey, and North Carolina, 1919. Softcover. Near Fine. An album of more than 275 photographs of Germans held at two American Internment camps during World War I. Small quarto. Measuring 13" x 10.25". String-tied black cloth over paper boards with "Photographs" on the front in gilt. Silver gelatin photographs measuring from 2.5" x 2" to 7.5" x 9.75", but most 4.5"x 3.5". Many of the photos are captioned in German on the rear, though damage to the corner mounts prevents us from check them all. Overall near fine with only light rubbing and bumping at the edges of the album; the photos fine though several are loose. Upon Congress's declaration of war with German on April 6, 1917, the Bureau of Immigration enacted a series of raids on German merchant ships anchored in U.S. ports. These "enemy aliens" were transported to several temporary internment camps before being sent to a permanent location in Hot Springs, North Carolina for the remainder of the war. The waning resort town of just 650 swelled to nearly 3000 with ship's officers rooming at the Mountain Park Hotel, while the rest of the men stayed in hastily build barracks on the grounds nearby. Though the camp was under guard, the security was minimal. The internees occupied their time playing sports, putting on plays, and building an elaborate miniature German village from materials they could gather on site such as flattened tin cans and scraps of lumber. When victory was declared the prisoners were transferred to Fort Oglethorpe in Georgia before returning home. As for the camp, a flood dama … [Click Below for Full Description]

Harry St.John Bridger Philby
Basrah: Government Press, 1919. Good, rubbing to binding, spine worn and rubbed, internally very good, some minor repaired marginal tears. Iraq in War Time Harry St.John Bridger Philby Basrah, printed and engraved at the Government Press, [1919]. Folio. Original brown cloth, front cover illustrated and lettered in gilt (in English), rear cover lettered in Arabic; pp. [104] hundreds of photographic illustrations, text in English and Arabic. This is an intriguing document of Iraq during the Great War, with excursions into Central Arabia, making this 'the first photographic book to appear on Najd' (Badr El-Hage). In 1918 Harry St John Philby ended his service with the British administration in Baghdad from 1915 to 1917 by travelling through the interior of the Arabian peninsula as head of a mission to Ibn Saud. During the nine-month journey of the Nejd he travelled some 4000 kilometres. He selected from over 600 photos taken in preparing this rare and beautiful publication. This second edition is most likely merely a re-issue of the original sheets of 1918 with a different colour of cloth chosen for the binding. The volume is divided into four sections of photos: Groups and Portraits, Local Events, Views and A Tour through Central Arabia. One photo shows 'the tourist' (Philby) amidst his Arabic-British escort. The Arabist, explorer, writer and British colonial intelligence officer (spy) known as Jack Philby or Sheikh Abdullah was stationed during the First World War with the British Mesopotamian Expeditionary Force in Baghdad, which organized the Arab revolt against the Ottoma … [Click Below for Full Description]
