        Zur Kritik der deutschen Intelligenz. Bern, Der Freie Verlag, 1919.

      1919. 8vo. 327 pp. Publisher's original printed wrappers. Inscribed by the author. First edition, inscribed to the managing director of the "Freier Verlag" (whose name has been effaced): "[Herrn Hans Huber] / In treuer Kameradschaft / Hugo Ball". Three years previously, the author had co-founded (with Hans Arp, Tristan Tzara, and Marcel Janco) the famous "Cabaret Voltaire" in Zurich, regarded as the cradle of Dadaism. In his present book he provides a historical analysis and critique of the "idea of the German state", which he held responsible for destroying "German thought". Prophetically, he writes: "It is my steadfast conviction that the destruction of the Prusso-German arbitrary power, as postulated by President Wilson in his famous address at Mount Vernon, will not be sufficient to protect the world from another German assassination [...]. It is of the utmost importance for the envisaged League of Nations to become fully aware of the historic strength of this foiled German plot, of the moral depletion of a people that has suffered for a thousand years under to most terrible theocracy [...]". The radical Ball, influenced by the great theorists of Anarchism, had spent most of the War years in exile in Switzerland, where he died in 1927, aged 41. Presentation copies of his books are rare.

        Some British Ballads

      , 1919 1919. ?Never did Old Poems Appear so Gayly Bedecked than Some British Ballads?"RACKHAM, Arthur. Some British Ballads. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: Constable & Co. Ltd, n.d. [1919]. Limited to 575 numbered and signed copies by the artist, this being copy no. 137. Quarto (10 7/16 x 8 5/8 inches; 265 x 218 mm.).

Corners very slightly bumped otherwise a near fine copy in a handsome binding."Several of the Ballads in this book are based on the great work of Francis James Child?" (Note)"Few of Mr Rackham's work have been more consistently impressed with charm and beauty than his illustrations in colour to Some British Ballads. In them he pictures a succession of fascinating heroines habited in quaint and picturesque costumes, amid surroundings which, though belonging to no definite place or period, are always appropriate and congruous. His heroes are hardly less charming than his heroines, and the scenes in which they are represented constitute a series of fascinating and delightful pictures ... one must feel grateful to Mr Rackham for giving us the prettiest picture book of the season" (The Connoisseur, Vol. LVI, 1920).?Never did old poems appear so gayly bedecked than Some British Ballads, which Arthur Rackham has gorgeously illustrated with 16 paintings? It is hard to decide which the more attractive feature of this book?Mr. Rackham?s paintings or the ballads themselves? (New York Times)."No more effective inspiration for the gifted brush of Arthur Rackham could be found than these popular old ballads. Handsomely printed and bound, this magnificent work should appeal to all" (The Atlantic Monthly, Dec. 1920).

        Lettre autographe signée au critique Louis Vauxcelles. [Paris], 6. II. 1919.

      1919. Une page in-4° oblongue. Friesz aimerait se voir décoré par le ministère. "Mon cher Vauxcelles, êtes-vous toujours bien avec monsieur Léon Bérard? Une demande de croix a été faite pour moi émanant de la direction de l'aéronautique pour récompenser mes services et particulièrement de la création du musée de l'armée au Trocadéro. Et déposée directement au cabinet du ministre de la guerre. Quant à moi je pense que c'est surtout mon passé d'art que vous connaissez mieux que moi-même qui m'autorise l'audace d'accepter cette distinction, si on veut bien m'en honorer. Je vous chargerai donc d'en toucher un mot à monsieur Léon Bérard que j'avais je crois autrefois réussi à intéresser au Salon d'automne pour que de sa haute influence il veuille bien me patronner auprès du général Mordac au cabinet du ministre. Je m'excuse de ce service, mais sachant que j'aurai l'occasion de vous prouver ma gratitude. Meilleurs sentiments de votre tout dévoué. | E. Othon Friesz. Je suis convaincu qu'un mot de monsieur Léon Bérard déciderait de toute hésitation".

        The Countries and Tribes of the Persian Gulf. London, Harrison and Sons, 1919[-1920].

      1919. Large 8vo. 2 vols. (12), 264 pp. (4), 265-643, (1) pp. With frontispiece and 8 photo-plates. Original grey cloth. First edition, second issue. - Includes chapters on the advent of Islam on the Gulf coast, the Portuguese era in Eastern Arabia, the Al-Bu-Said dynasty, a history of commerce in the Gulf, a description of the country and the pearl fisheries, as well as a chapter on the tribes of the Gulf, with an entry on the Al-Kowasim ("a powerful Maadic tribe occupying the sea ports on the Pirate coast") as well as on Beni Yas and their towns, "Abu Thabi and Debaye". - The author's first appointment in Arabia was as Resident at Aden in 1867; he was later made Agent and Consul at Muscat before being promoted Consul General, first at Bagdad then at Zanzibar. This work was published posthumously by his widow from a remarkable archive of notes, "many of which were jotted down on odd bits of paper as he [Miles] rode through the desert on his camel". The book remains an authority on Omani history and provides a storehouse of knowledge for any reader interested in the Arabian Gulf. - Backs a little faded, with two small holes repaired. The final two lines of text on the title page have been removed by a previous owner; they would have included the note "Reprinted 1920", confirming the copy as part of the second issue. An extremely uncommon and desirable work. Rare, only two copies at auction within the last decades (the Peter Hopkirk copy, Sotheby's, 14 Oct. 1998, lot 989: £10,000).

London: Hodder & Stoughton, [1919].Later trade edition. Large quarto (10 15/16 x 8 1/2 inches; 277 x 216 mm.). xxiv, 143, [1] pp. Forty color plates, including frontispiece, mounted on cream art paper with captioned tissue guards.

A fine copy in the original tan dust jacket printed in dark brown and with a copy of the color plate facing p. 66 pasted on to the front panel. Slight chipping at head and tail of jacket spine, otherwise fine."Dulac...was working on illustrations for The Tempest which Hodder and Stoughton were to release at Christmas as one of a series of Shakespeare plays on quarto volumes...Dulac's illustrations were much brighter...His feeling for the picture as a whole seemed more convincing and showed greater human understanding as the illustrations moved beyond stage scenes and became mood pictures or tone poems..."Dulac's greater assurance in The Tempest was manifested on many beautifully observed scenes" (White, p. 36).The book is scarcely seen in its dust jacket. Hughey does not even record that the book was issued in one. It may be that Hodder and Stoughton only used the misprinted dust jacket on a limited number of copies before deciding to scrap it.Hughey 19a.

      1919. Portrait dimensions: 181 x 111 mm; 191 x 152 mm; 155 x 212 mm; 206 x 159 mm. Original black-and-white albumen prints. - Books: 9 works in 18 vols., mainly first editions. Original cloth and boards. 8vo. Three fine, large-format portraits by Charlotte Joel-Heinzelmann, Berlin (taken in 1921-1925): the famous shot of Kraus with a book and cigar, signed "Karl Kraus" on the blindstamped cardboard backing, and two less common pictures (somewhat faded, one signed "Ch. Joel" on the cardboard) inscribed "für Georg Jahoda | Karl Kraus | April 25" and (within the image) "für Georg Jahoda | Sept. 23 | Karl Kraus". The fourth portrait, probably taken in the late 1920s by Albert Hilscher (1892-1964) and used by Kraus as his passport photo, is unsigned. - All books inscribed by Kraus "für Johanna Jahoda", "für Frau Johanna König-Jahoda" or "für Hansi König-Jahoda". Includes: Epigramme (Wien/Leipzig 1927): "Wien, im Okt. 27". Die Unüberwindlichen (Wien/Leipzig 1928): "Wien, im Mai 1928". Literatur und Lüge (Wien/Leipzig 1929): "Wien, im Februar 1929". Worte in Versen (9 vols., Wien/Leipzig 1919-1930): "Wien, im Okt. 1930" (in vol. 9). Die Chinesische Mauer (dedicated to the memory of Georg Jahoda, Wien/Leipzig 1930): "Wien, im März 1930".

All volumes somewhat rubbed, with wear to hinges and spines. First editions throughout, except vols. 1-3 and 5 of "Worte in Versen". - Johanna ("Hansi") Jahoda was the daughter of Georg Jahoda (1863-1926), whose printing shop committed to press Kraus's famous journal "Die Fackel" as well as most of his other writings. Jahoda was one of the few who was able to read Kraus's handwriting fluently, and bore Kraus's fanatic proofreading habits with equanimity, for which virtues the author bestowed on his printer the honour of being named "co-creator" of his works. When Jahoda passed away, Kraus published a poem in his memory; the press was continued by his son Martin Jahoda until after the death of Kraus. During the heyday of the relationship between Kraus and Jahoda, Johanna herself helped out at the printing shop. - Provenance: acquired directly from the niece of Johanna Jahoda. WG² 40, 46, 48, 18 (vols. 4, 6-9), 51, 54, 56, 58, 59.

        The Caliph's Design

      London: The Egoist Ltd.,, 1919. Architects! Where is your Vortex? Octavo. Original marbled blue and white paper over card boards, printed label on front cover. Spine lightly sunned, a little wear to head and tail of spine, small stain and abrasion to label, light bump to bottom fore-corner, blue stain to endpapers (offsetting from the wraparound paper cover). Nevertheless a very good copy of a fragile publication. First edition, first impression, 1,000 copies were printed. With the rare publisher's flyer for Lewis's debut novel Tarr, "some were laid into copies of The Caliph's Design" (Morrow & Lafourcade). "In The Caliph's Design: Architects! Where is Your Vortex?, Lewis offers the most sustained and considered of his early critiques of the art scene of the early twentieth century. Published in 1919, it is a work of the immediate post-vorticist period and a product of Lewis's chastened sensibility following his service in the Great War" ( Toby Avard Foshay, Wyndham Lewis and the Avant-Garde: The Politics of the Intellect, 1992, p. 6).

        Houpacky [Swings], nos. 1-6 (all published).

      Irkutsk: Litografie Inf.-Osvet. Odboru M. V 1919 - Quartos (30.5 × 25.7 cm). Original pictorial self-wrappers; 4 to 8 pp. each. Richly illustrated, with vignettes and drawings, many full-page and in color. Bound in contemporary stiff card boards; not resized; one leaf stained, else about very good. Complete run of this strikingly illustrated and lithographically produced satirical journal by Czechoslovak Legion soldiers, who fought alongside the White Army in Siberia after WWI and controlled large stretches of the Transsiberian Railroad from 1918&#150;19. The journal was published June&#150;November 1919, after the Legion soldiers had retreated further eastward alongside Kolchak&#146;s army, while transporting the bulk of the Imperial gold reserves for the Whites. In 1920, the Czechoslovak Legion was gradually evacuated by ship from Vladivostok and over 60.000 soldiers returned to the Czechoslovak Republic. Despite the precarious conditions, the Legion issued a daily newspaper using a printing press on board the train, as well as issuing numerous brochures, books, as well as handwritten lithographed bulletins in small print runs. During longer stops, such as during their time in Vladivostok, a printer&#146;s shop was set up outside the train and the operations significantly expanded. Thus, the present journal was printed in color on large leaves of better quality paper stock. Edited by one Jan Rada, who wrote most of the humorous texts, and illustrated by Váca Stepán, whose caricatures make light of the absurd conditions of the Czechs in their Siberian exile, allied commanders such as Maurice Janin, and the Czechoslovak president T. G. Masaryk. KVK, OCLC show complete sets at the British Library and University of Melbourne, and incomplete holdings at Nanterre-BDIC (nos. 5 and 6) and Michigan (nos. 1-5).

        Stoian Rainov (The painter Stoian Rainov, album of reproductions). Knigi za bibliofili (Books for bibliophiles), 2.

      Stara Zagora: Knigoizdatelstvo Vezni 1919 - Octavo (15 x 15 cm). Original pictorial wrappers by Sirak Skitnik; [3] pp., [8] leaves of plates, of which three in color. Wrappers lightly worn to edges; still about very good. Album of eight reproductions of work by Stoian Rainov (or Raynov, 1894-1978), one of the founders of the Bulgarian school of ceramics, who began his career in the Secessionist manner, with drawings and vignettes. Rainov did not embrace Expressionism, unlike fellow Bulgarian modernists Sirak Skitnik and Geo Milev, hewing closer to a Symbolist and Secession-influenced style. Rainov's elder brother Nikolai Rainov (1889-1954) was a poet, writer, and artist. Both were close to the poet and artist Geo Milev, who published the journal Vezni in 1919-21. Rainov remains completely unknown in the West. Eight full-page reproductions of Rainov's work, which show various influences, such as Symbolism, Japan, and the esoteric, some with titles, others with aphorisms and citations of contemporary Bulgarian literature. This publication is pictured in Ruzha Marinska, Geo Milev and the Art (2015), p. 45. Not in Jacono. KVK, OCLC show a sole copy, at Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Vezni: literaturno-khudozhestveno spisanie [Scales: magazine for literature and art], vol. I, nos. 1&#150;12 (complete first year).

      Sofia: 1919 - Octavos (20 × 15.3 cm). Contemporary maroon cloth, with title to spine; original printed self-wrappers; each ca. 30&#150;40 pp. Each issue with black-and-white and color reproductions of Bulgarian and foreign art, in the text and on special leaves of plates. Issues resized to binding; occasionally lightly soiled; embossed private library stamp to two issues, and one article with pencil underlining; still good or better. The complete first year, in twelve issues, of the important journal of Bulgarian and international modernist art and literature--especially Symbolism--published between September 1919 and March 1922, and edited by the poet and literary critic Geo Milev (1895&#150;1925). 'Vezni' was founded after Milev's return from Berlin, where he recovered from wounds received in the war, but was also exposed to art movements such as Franz Pfemfert's "Die Aktion" and Herwarth Walden's "Der Sturm." "In 'Vezni' the Bulgarian reader encountered for the first time the world of modern art in the form of mostly high quality reproductions, partially in colour, occasionally full-page, as well as in detailed discussions" (Domenico Jacono, "Bulgarian Modernism," p. 11). In addition to presenting the works of both Western artists (Gustav Klimt, Aubrey Beardsley, Oskar Kokoschka, Franz Marc, and Egon Schiele, for instance) and Russian modernists (such as Marc Chagall, Natalia Goncharova, and Wassily Kandinsky), "Vezni" was instrumental in promoting the work of Bulgarian modernist artists, such as Ivan Boiadzhiev, Stoian Rainov, Sirak Skitnik, and Vasil Zakhariev. It was also the forum in which many foreign modernist writers and their aesthetic programs were first presented to Bulgarian readers &#150; among them Baudelaire, Gide, Rimbaud, Verhaeren, Verlaine, Aleksandr Blok and Oscar Wilde. "Vezni" also published the works of many Bulgarian avant-garde poets and writers, such as Lamar, Ivan Milev, Chavdar Mutafov and Nikolai Rainov. Each issue also contains a "critical review" of new publications and exhibitions. Among important Bulgarian statements regarding new artistic developments are Geo Milev's short essay "Expressionism" in issue 10 and Sirak Skitnik's "Old and new art?" in issue 7. Milev would eventually join the Communist Party, which lent the journal an increasingly political edge. "Vezni" appeared weekly before being discontinued in 1922 due to lack of funding. The issues of the first volume contain reproductions of work by Beardsley, Boiadzhiev, Gauguin, van Gogh, Kandinsky, Franz Marc, Edvard Munch, Kandinsky, Adriana van Rees-Dutilh, Dante Gabriel Rosetti, Schiele, Sirak Skitnik, Vrubel, Zakhariev and others.

      s.e, 1919-20. In 8, pp. 97-120; 261 + (2) di pubblicita'. Legatura in mz. tl. coeva. Seconda serie completa della prima rivista fondata da Piero Gobetti, progettata nel periodo delle vacanze estive fra la fine del liceo e l'inizio dell'universita', e pubblicata tra il 1918 e il 1920. In apertura si trova anche il numero 7-8 dell'1-28 febbraio 1919. La prima serie e' costituita da dieci fascicoli, numerati dall'uno al dieci (il primo datato 1-15 novembre 1918, l'ultimo 15-31 marzo 1919), la seconda, di dodici fascicoli, numerati dall'uno al dodici va dal 5 maggio 1919 al 12 febbraio 1920). L'interruzione tra la prima e la seconda serie e' motivata dalla partecipazione di Gobetti  al primo convegno dei gruppi d'azione degli Amici dell'Unita', svoltosi a Firenze dal 17 al 19 aprile 1919. Gobetti non fu soltanto il direttore della rivista ma anche - e fin da subito - il principale autore, firmando articoli di politica interna ed estera, di critica letteraria, note di costume e recensioni di libri. Dai numerosi articoli di fondo a sua firma e' possibile ricostruire il processo di maturazione sia del suo pensiero politico sia del suo stile di scrittura. Si affiancarono poi al fondatore firme conosciute come Balbino Giuliano, Angelo Tasca e Luigi Einaudi e giovani amici come Mario Attilio Levi, Giuseppe Manfredini e Ada Prospero, con il quale si fidanzo' in quel periodo e poi sposo' nel 1923.
