        Le Film (33 Issues)

      Pathe Freres, Paris 1919 - An impressive crop of 33 issues of this early, very uncommon Parisian trade magazine, issued by "Pathe Freres", one of France's (and the world's) leading film production companies at the time. Spanning 1918 and 1919 (the magazine's 5th and 6th years in existence), this weekly (and sometimes bi-weekly) offers a detailed, very sophsiticated look at mostly the world of French film and cinematography but also covers the world of French theatre, concert-going and music halls. Crisp black-and-white photos run thru each issue, as does wonderful multi-colored typography and design. Magazine-formatted, uniform, tall quartos in their stapled, pictorial wrappers. A razor-thin, innocuous crease running vertically along all of the front covers; otherwise, each issue is clean and crisp and easily VG+ to Near Fine. Internally immaculate as well, with no writing or markings to any of the issues. One of the great undertakings in early French (and international) cinema. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Fromme Gesänge von Theobald Tiger. Mit einer Vorrede von Ignaz Wrobel. Berlin-Charlottenburg, Felix Lehmann Verlag, 1919.

      1919. 8vo. VIII, 117 pp. Original half calf with title to spine. First edition; no. 13 of 50 copies of the numbered luxury edition on wove paper: still without p. IX of the preface and the statement "1.-6. Tausend". Includes eight-line autograph poem on flyleaf, signed "Th. Tiger" and dated 1920: "Ich gucke freundlich um die Oecke und greife voller Seelenruh der Muse unter ihre Röcke ... Und dabei, Leser, siehst du zu - ? Sie quitscht. Ich grinse. Sie verstehen: Nicht immer gilt der Klassik Maß. Denn was wir im Verborgnen drehen macht uns am allermeisten Spaß - ! 1920. Th. Tiger". - "This edition was printed in 50 copies, numbered, and provided by the author with an unpublished poem, signed". The book is so scarce that it is questionable whether fifty copies were indeed printed. The poem was first published by the Tucholsky Archive in 1978 (Bonitz/W. D 2790). - Slight staining to edges; spine and corners somewhat scuffed, otherwise well-preserved. Bonitz/W. C 4. Wilpert/G. 3.

        SOUTH. The story of Shackleton's last expedition 1914-1917.

      FIRST EDITION. 1st impression. Large 8vo. (10.1 x 6.5 inches). Illustrated with colour photo frontis, five maps-including one large folding, and 87 mono photographic plates. A near very good copy with the page edges browned, as usual with this book. This first impression was printed on poor quality paper and is prone to browning. Original publishers dark blue cloth with silver illustration of The Endurance to front board. Spine and front board lettered in silver. Publishers blind stamped device to back board. Inner front hinge cracked but firm. Some rubbing to the extremities and remains of a repair to a split, about 1.5 inch long, to the lower rear outer hinge where a previous owner had placed a matching blue cloth patch which covered the first few letters of the Publishers name on the spine. This patch has mostly been removed so that the spine lettering is now readable. Overall an acceptable copy of this classic and fragile book.

        On the Relation between the Specific Gravities of Bodies in their Gaseous State and the Weights of their Atoms" in Annals of Philosophy; or, Magazine of Chemistry, Mineralogy, Mechanics, Natural History, Agriculture and the Arts 6, July-December 1815, pp. 321-330 WITH "Correction of a Mistake in the Essay on the Relation between the Specific Gravities of Bodies in their Gaseous State and the Weights of their Atoms" in Annals of Philosophy; or, Magazine of Chemistry, Mineralogy, Mechanics, Natural History, Agriculture and the Arts 7, 1816, pp. 111-113, 1816

      TWO VOLUME FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST MODERN ATTEMPT TO CONSTRUCT A THEORY OF ATOMIC STRUCTURE. In the first of the two papers, "the English chemist William Prout observed that the atomic weights of the elements known at that time appeared to be whole multiples of the atomic weight of hydrogen, which has been since called the "whole number rule." This was the first rudimentary theory of the internal structure of an atom" (Wenner Collection). In the second paper, published the following year, Prout went further and proposed that the atoms of all other elements were composed of hydrogen atoms. These two assertions, the whole number rule and hydrogen as the universal atomic building block, became known as "Prout's hypothesis." Prout's whole number rule was finally proven correct more than a century later in 1919 by British physicist William Aston. In 1789, Antoine Lavoisier produced the first modern list of chemical elements, containing also the 23 elements then known. Lavoisier died in 1794 and in the years following his death, another 32 were added. "In 1815 Prout, using Avogadro's method of comparing the relative densities and weights of gases, proposed that all atoms appeared to have weights that were exact multiples of the weight of the lightest atom, hydrogen, and that the different atomic weights of elements are whole-number multiples of the atomic weight of hydrogen (Prout's hypothesis). "He took this as proof that all atoms were actually made from hydrogen atoms and the idea was adopted as atomic theory and used for later investigations of atomic weights and the classification of the elements. If all atoms are made from atoms of hydrogen, then it could be possible to transform an atom of one element into an atom of another. If atoms had been assembled from other things, then they could not themselves be the smallest things in creation" (Neilsen, Atomic Weight, A History of Science). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: C. Baldwin. 4to. Volume VI: [vii], 479 pages, [1], 4. 6 plates. Volume VII: [viii], 488 pages, [4]. 10 plates. Both volumes very handsomely rebound in three-quarter calf over marbled paper boards (purposefully rubbed a bit by the conservator for aging). Five raised bands at the spine; elaborate gilt-tooling in the compartments; gilt lettered at the spine. New endpapers. Bright and exceptionally clean throughout. Near fine condition.

        POEMS.

      FIRST EDITION. First state text with the 2 missprints on page 13. These were corrected in later copies. 8vo. (9.2 x 6.1 inches). Sewn in original blue and white marbled paper wraps with the earliest issue title label, printed in red, to the front panel. One of fewer than 250 copies (probably circa 200) hand printed and bound by the Woolfs. The Hogarth Press accounts book shows that 180 copies were sold and twelve presentation or review copies were distributed within a year of publication. Both J. Howard Woolmer and Donald Gallup, in their respective bibliographies of Eliot and The Hogarth Press state that the earliest copies were bound up in paper wrappers of varying texture and design with a red lettered label, and that later copies were bound up in marbled paper wrappers, the majority with a label lettered in black. The fact that this copy has the earliest state, uncorrected text and the earliest state label throws some doubt on this assertion. The wrappers edges are a little chipped and show some minor fading, and there has been a neat, professional repair to a split in the fold of the wrapper but this is still overall a very good example of this fragile booklet. One of the rarest of Eliot's works, copies with the early state text and label seldom come onto the market, the addition of a family association attached to this copy, adding the strong possibilty of it being one of the 12 presentation copies, makes it rarer still.

        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]. 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.). Sixteen full color tipped-in plates with tissue guards lettered in red, twenty-four black and white drawings.

Spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, cockerel end-papers, all edges gilt. Neat ink inscription on front blank leaf. 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).

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).

        Shakespeare's Comedy of The Tempest

      , 1919 1919. Later Trade EditionIn the Scarce Dust Jacket[DULAC, Edmund, illustrator]. SHAKESPEARE, William. Shakespeare's Comedy of The Tempest. With Illustrations by Edmund Dulac. 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. Five black and white headpieces for each act. Publisher's blue cloth over boards, front cover and spine decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt. 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).
