        The Economic Consequences of the Peace

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited,, 1919. Octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettered spine. Spine toned, a little wear and a few nicks to extremities of spine, a few pale stains on back cover, book block bumped at top fore-corner. First edition, first impression, title page stamped "Presentation Copy". With the ownership inscription of "Sydney Waterlow" on the front free endpaper; this is the diplomat Sir Sydney Waterlow (1878-1944), a fellow-member of the Bloomsbury Group, with Keynes, in 1913. This is an apposite provenance: Waterlow was Acting First Secretary at the Foreign Office and was a member of the British delegation at the Paris Peace Conference; there are a good number of passages marked with a marginal line (in pencil or ink) and notes across the verso of the final leaf and recto of the rear free endpaper. Keynes was also present at Paris, as principal representative of the British Treasury, and resigned from his position in protest at the heavy reparations demanded from Germany. The Economic Consequences of the Peace, Keynes's second book, was written directly afterwards as a condemnation of Allied policy. It established his reputation as a political economist.

Provenance: Estate of the artist. Born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1919, Jason Schoener came from a family of distinguished American artists.

Beginning in 1939, Schoener spent his summers at the Zorach family farm in Georgetown, Maine, where he studied art with his Uncle William. After service in the Pacific during WWII, Schoener served as an instructor, department chairman, and dean at California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, CA. Schoener's other teaching assignments included Mills College in Oakland, California, and the Athens Technological Institute in Greece. Meanwhile, Schoener continued to use his Georgetown and then Robinhood homes Maine as a summer studio. Over the span of almost two decades, Schoener had several solo exhibitions at the Midtown Gallery on East 57th Street in New York City. His works are in many museum and private collections, including the Oakland Museum and the Whitney Museum in New York. He died in 1997.

        South.

      London: William Heinemann,, 1919. The Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition 1914?1917. Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, titles to spine and front board in silver, large block of Endurance stuck in the ice to front board in silver, publisher's device to rear board in blind, top edge blue. Colour frontispiece and 87 half-tone plates, folding map at the rear. Bookseller's ticket to front pastedown. Pencilled ownership inscription to front free endpaper. Cloth a little rubbed, spot of wear to foot of rear hinge, pencilled annotations to rear endpapers. An excellent copy. First edition, second impression, a month after the first and printed on superior paper stock, so less prone to the heavy browning which tends to mar the first impression. "The failure of Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition to even reach the Antarctic continent, much less to cross it via the South Pole, has become the great polar success story of the twentieth century" (Books on Ice). Shackleton embarked in 1914 on the Endurance to make the first traverse of the Antarctic continent; a journey of some 1800 miles from sea to sea. But 1915 turned into an unusually icy year in Antarctica; after drifting trapped in the ice for nine months, the Endurance was crushed in the ice on October 27. "Shackleton now showed his supreme qualities of leadership. With five companions he made a voyage of 800 miles in a 22-foot boat through some of the stormiest seas in the world, crossed the unknown lofty interior of South Georgia, and reached a Norwegian whaling station on the north coast. After three attempts. Shackleton succeeded (30 August 1916) in rescuing the rest of the Endurance party and bringing them to South America" (DNB). Amazingly, all members of the Endurance party survived the ordeal, attributing their survival to Shackleton's exceptional leadership qualities. In recent years, this factor has led to the re-interpretation of the book in terms of a leadership and man-management manual, and several influential attempts have been made to distil from the narrative the underlying principles of Shackleton's command in order that they might be applied more widely. As Apsley Cherry-Garrard remarked in Worst Journey in the World; "For a joint scientific and geographical piece of organization, give me Scott; for a Winter Journey, Wilson; for a dash to the Pole and nothing else, Amundsen; and if I am in the devil of a hole and want to get out of it, give me Shackleton every time."

        Broome Special Phonograph Records.

      Medford, MA: George W. Broome, , [c.1919]. Original ten-inch 78 rpm record of African-American violinist Clarence Cameron White. Original shellac 10-inch disc, with original pale green paper sleeve. Disc with general surface scratches and marks, peripheral even toning to sleeve. The record label established in 1919 by George W. Broome at 23 Clayton Avenue, Medford, Massachusetts, is the first known black-owned record label, and predates Harry Pace's Black Swan label (established in Harlem in 1921) by at least eighteen months. "One of the more exciting recent developments in the study of early black recordings is the discovery of the first black-owned and operated record label. That label was long assumed to be Black Swan Records, founded in 1921 by Harry H. Pace, the publishing partner of W. C. Handy, which made its name in the field of jazz and blues. Nearly two years earlier, however, a black entrepreneur in Medford, Massachusetts, launched a label dedicated to black concert music, which he sold by mail. Fewer than a dozen sides were issued, but what remarkable records they were! Broome was founded by a man who devoted much of his career to the advancement of black culture. Information about the life of George Wellington Broome is sketchy. He was born in Brooklyn, New York, most likely on April 8, 1868... After a few years trying to get a foothold in New York's competitive theatrical world, Broome moved his family to Medford, Massachusetts, where his occupation was variously listed as porter, labourer and waiter... He apparently worked in some capacity for the government, while continuing to dabble in various theatrical and educational enterprises. In 1910 the New York Age reported that he had formed the Broome Exhibition Company to produce documentary films of black colleges... Immediately after World War I the patent monopoly of the two biggest record makers - Victor and Columbia - began to break down. Independent labels were entering the field and daring to produce lateral-cut records, playable on all phonographs, in defiance of the majors' patent... The first Broome recording sessions appear to have taken place in New York during the summer or early fall of 1919... Broome wanted to promote black concert artists, and he used his connections in the field to line up some impressive talent. Moreover his artists had not recorded elsewhere because of the prejudice of the white companies against black classical artists. Broome had the field virtually to himself. Broome's first issued recording was a real coup. The eminent composer and baritone Harry T. Burleigh, one of the leading figures in the black musical world, agreed to record for his old friend... Other artists recorded by Broome were sopranos Florence Cole-Talbert and Antionette Garnes, violinist/composer Clarence Cameron White, and pianist/composer R. Nathaniel Dett, the latter two playing their own compositions... George W. Broome died in Medford on April 1, 1941... Broome Special Phonograph Records were for years forgotten, unknown even to specialists in recording history. Only recently has information about the label come to light..." (Tim Brooks, Lost Sounds: Blacks and the Birth of the Recording Industry, 1890-1919, 2005, chapter 32). At least three variations of Broome's label are known to exists: a brown label with black and brown type - which he marketed as the "Brown Seal Record" - another with black lettering (as here) and a white label with blue type. A testament to the rarity of Broome recordings is that when Sutton and Nauck were compiling the enormous database CD that accompanied their American Labels and Companies (Denver, 2000), the only illustration they were able to locate was the much more common "pasteover" of a recording that Booker T. Washington originally made for Columbia. Broome's label was short-lived and it is believed that it closed down around 1923. The present recording was only the third to be released, preceded by Harry T. Burleigh's rendition of "Go Down Moses" and Florence Cole-Talbert's recording of "Villanelle" (a vocal showpiece by Dell'Acqua). The artist recorded here is the African-American violinist and composer Clarence Cameron White (1880-1960), performing his own composition "Cradle Song". He studied at Oberlin Conservatory (1896-1901) and had private instruction with, amongst others, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, before going on to hold various distinguished teaching positions. "White conceptualized the National Association of Negro Music Teachers, 1916, which later evolved into the National Association of Negro Musicians" (Encyclopaedia of the Harlem Renaissance, volume 2, p. 1249). A remarkable and rare survival from the infancy of African-American musical recording; to quote once again from Tim Lott's Lost Sounds: "Due to their unusual content, [Broome's recordings] are extremely important sound documents and deserve to be preserved and reissued".

        South. The story of Shackleton's Last Expedition 1914-1927

      London: William Heinemann, 1919. First edition. Frontispiece, 87 photographic images on 45 plates and a large colored folding map. xxii, 376 pp. 8vo. A fine copy in original blue pictorial cloth, silver blocked image of the Endurance to upper board and silvered title to spine, bookplate of Nora Kilmorey to front pastedown, errata slip tipped in to p1. First edition. Frontispiece, 87 photographic images on 45 plates and a large colored folding map. xxii, 376 pp. 8vo. A classic from the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration. Having watched Amundsen claim the Pole for Norway in 1911, Shackleton reckoned there was a final great expedition to be undertaken, a crossing of the continent. The Endurance departed on schedule on 8 August 1914. On the face of things, the expedition was a disaster. Shackleton not only failed to cross the continent, he didn't reach the Pole. In fact, he didn't even reach the mainland. Instead, the party watched helplessly as their ship was crushed by the ice. It was here that Shackleton "showed his supreme qualities of leadership. With five companions he made a voyage of 800 miles in a 22-foot boat through some of the stormiest seas in the world, crossed the unknown lofty interior of South Georgia, and reached a Norwegian whaling station on the north coast. After three attempts Shackleton succeeded (30 August 1916) in rescuing the rest of the Endurance party and bringing them to South America" (ODNB). Not a single man was lost. Owing to paper shortages at the close of the First World War, this first edition was printed on poor quality paper and is thus browned as usual. Conrad p. 224; Rosove 308 A1; Spence 1107; Taurus 105

        Mr Standfast

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1919., 1919. FIRST EDITION. 8vo. Pp 412. Publisher's clean, bright mid-blue cloth, titled and ruled in dark blue. Minor edge spotting and some spots of sunning to front board, a very good copy indeed. In bright pictorial wrapper, with rubbing to extremities, some creasing and chipping to edges,a couple of closed tears some inoffensive soiling to the rear panel. Internally clean, ink ownership stamp to front flyleaf (there is very faded evidence of the same name stamp on the front panel of the wrapper, scarcely to be seen). Now a very scarce book in original dustwrapper. An attractive copy of the third Richard Hannay adventure (following The Thirty Nine Steps and Greenmantle), this installment taking place among the highlands of Scotland, Switzerland, possibly the first literary face-off on an underground platform, and finally winding up in the delightful environs of the Western Front for its spy hunting climax. Hannay's third show also throws in some beastly submarine skullduggery, the war in the air and a spot of love interest in the trim form of Miss Lamington, soon we surmise to become Mrs. Hannay. For a writer of 'shockers' Buchan is at times crisp and terse and at others rather sentimental, especially in his depictions of fighting men adrift in the ugliness of war. There's also lashings of positively rigid upper lips, and that splendid (now rather unfashionable) bit of Late Colonial Zen; the uncluttered conviction that the very least a chap can do when faced with evil is go down swinging. Buchan's famous adventurer was one of the fore-runners to James Bond; [author Ian Fleming] "was certainly influenced by no-nonsense British fictional characters such as Richard Hannay" [Gilbert, p.616]. Blanchard A46. See also Haining; Crime Fiction p193-4.

        Bay: A Book of Poems

      Westminster: The Beaumont Press, 1919 Illustrated with hand colored woodcuts by Anne Estelle Rice. First edition, limited issue of 200 numbered copies, this being one of 50 copies printed on cartridge paper. Publisher's green cloth and yellow patterned boards, lettered in gilt. About fine, corners very lightly bumped, former owner's bookplate to the front pastedown, fresh interior. A beautiful copy. Roberts A12.b. An exceedingly rare publication, Bay was first published in several short print runs. This first edition is one of 200 copies, and only 50 copies, like this copy, are printed on cartridge paper with hand colored illustrations. According to the publisher, roughly 25 of the 50 cartridge paper copies were not sold due to an accident, lowering the total number of obtainable copies of Bay to 175 (63 of which are housed in institutional libraries' special collections) and making these copies the scarcest of the three variants. The remaining 150 copies are comprised of 120 copies printed on handmade paper (A12.a) and 30 printed on Japanese vellum and signed by the author and illustrator (A12.c). Bay is a collection of eighteen of Lawrence's poems, including "The Little Town at Evening," "After the Opera," "Bombardment," "Bread Upon the Waters," "Tommies in the Train," "War-Baby," and "Nostalgia," among others. As Roberts explains in his bibliography, these poems "comprise the greater part of Lawrence's literary reaction to the war." Notably, Bay was the first of Lawrence's books to be "issued in an expensive format from a private press," a practice he would continue with many of his subsequent works.. Illus. by Rice, Anne Estelle. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Fine.

        Caffe Concerto alfabeto a sorpresa

      Milan: Edizioni futuriste di "Poesia", , [1919?]. Octavo. Original pictorial wrapper, stapled as issued. Illustrated throughout. Very light general toning to periphery of wrappers, small portion torn from margin of one leaf. An excellent copy. First edition, decidedly scarce: Copac locates only copies of the Italian 1970s reprint in British and Irish institutional libraries, and apparently not in OCLC. Francesco Cangiullo (1884-1977), writer, poet and painter, met Marinetti in 1910 and participated in the Esposizione Libera Futurista Internazionale in Rome in 1914. This is his best-known work and is a wonderful example of Futurist playfulness: "drawn in 1915 but published four years later, Cangiullo whimsically depicts a lively evening at the variety theater in his hometown of Naples in which the dancers, singers, acrobats, and comedians are composed of letters, numbers, and mathematical signs" (MoMA online). .

Sound binding; hinges pulling at the binding staples. Clean pages. Toned endpapers; front with a chip and closed tear. Ding to the top of the front board and a corresponding tear on the rear board. The dust jacket has a faint dampstain, minor soiling, and chips at the spine ends and top of front panel. The Swedish edition of Ein Neu Bilderbuch. Although uncredited, the book was illustrated by Sigmund Freud's niece. Tom Freud was named Marta Gertrud at birth but assumed but a masculine first name as a teenager in hope that it would open doors in the art world. Tom became part of the avant-garde community in Berlin and was a member of the city's academic, artistic, and Zionist circles. In 1921, she married a journalist Jakop (Yankel) Seidmann and a year later gave birth to a daughter they named Angela. At about the same time the couple became friends with the poet Chaim Nachman Bialik and partnered with him to establish a publishing firm, Ophir, to produce Hebrew children's books. While Tom's book illustrations (usually folk-art style ink outlines filled in with watercolor) received critical praise, the firm never became financially successful, and in 1924 Bialik left Germany for Tel Aviv without completing several agreed upon books and refusing to reimburse the Siedmann-Freud's for his share of the partnership's liabilities. Ophir struggled on for several years before completely collapsing in 1929, leaving the Seidmann-Freuds destitute. Utterly ruined financially, Jakob committed suicide, and Tom became near catatonic. She was institutionalized and despite treatment from her famous uncle, Tom never recovered. She refused to eat and died of starvation (some say a drug overdose) the next year, after which Angela was adopted by an aunt. When the Nazis came to power in the 1930s, Tom's illustrated books were declared to be Entartete Kunst (Degenerate Art), and almost all copies were destroyed.

        World War One Photograph Album - Navy Band Member aboard the U.S.S. Iowa and in France

      Philadelphia, Norfolk, Atlantic Ocean, and France, 1919. Photograph Album. Very Good. The album is approximately 11.5" x 7.5" and contains almost 120 photographs ranging in size from approximately 2" x 3" to 6.5" x 10". The photographs document the daily life of a Navy tuba player during World War I as a member of U.S.S. Iowa band and also during a deployment to France, probably during 1919. A few of the images are Real Photo Post Cards taken by one of the band members. The photographs are in nice shape; many are captioned on the front and some (probably most) are captioned on the reverse. (Several have loosened, and their captions are visible.) A band program and two printed poems by W. E. Wing about naval life in Tidewater are laid in. One of the poems has a manuscript explanation of the naval terms used in the verse. The Iowa, an old battleship that had be decommissioned in 1914, was brought out of mothballs and re-commissioned in 1917 when the U. S. entered the war. She was initially berthed at the Philadelphia Navy Yard and served as a receiving ship, but by November she had relocated to Norfolk, Virginia where she patrolled the entrance to the Chesapeake Bay and also served as a training ship for the Atlantic Fleet. Photos include one of John Philip Sousa (he came out of retirement to serve in the Navy during war), formal shots of the band posed in front of the Iowa's main guns, many of the band in concert and on parade (both afloat and ashore), other U. S. and foreign vessels, life aboard ship (mess time, scrubbing decks), recreation (baseball and football games, swimming), a Navy band playing on board a troopship headed for France, a Navy band in France (visiting Reims, a destroyed tank, and American graves), and the Navy's NC-4 seaplane that was the first aircraft to successfully fly non-stop across the Atlantic in the spring of 1919. Overall, this is an attractive collection of photographs documenting WWI wartime service in the U.S. from a seldom seen perspective. No doubt, quite scarce.

        Échos de mon atelier.

      Paris: imprimé à la main par Raymond Duncan, 1919 - Octavo, 24 pp. Single quire sewn in original buff card wraps printed in black. Wraps faintly toned and a little creased at extremities. An excellent copy. One woodcut illustration in the text, vignette to rear wrap and prelim leaf. First edition and only edition. This pamphlet, a manifesto in effect of the author's philosophy of "actionalism", was hand-printed by him, using a typeface of his design. At the time it came off the press, Raymond Duncan, elder brother Isadora Duncan, was running the Akademia with his wife Penelope in Paris. They had previously lived in Greece in the manner of the Ancient Greeks, in a villa outside Athens. Their Akademia, based on the model of Plato's Academy, offered free courses which reflected Duncan's multi-disciplinary creative output; like his sister he was a dancer, but he was also a poet, a philosopher and an artist. In 1955 Duncan featured in Orson Welles's documentary on Saint-Germain-des-Prés, as part of the series "Around the World with Orson Welles". A scarce title, OCLC lists only three copies.

        Photographs of the North Russian Relief Force. April 1919 to October 1919. General H. deV. Sadleir-Jackson's Brigade." Approximately 100 snapshots, mounted and captioned in ink. Typed order bearing the ink stamp "Russian Relief Force" dated 9 September 1919 laid down

      1919 - Photographs measuring 6 x 4 inches and smaller. 1 vols. Oblong 8vo (8 3/4 x 6 1/2 inches). RARE PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE NORTH RUSSIAN RELIEF FORCE 1919. A rare survival from a distinguished World War One veteran. Born in India, Nightingale was educated at Rugby and Sandhurst and joined the Royal Fusiliers in 1910. He survived the landing on V beach (Cape Helles, Gallipoli) April 25th, 1915, and the following year he was awarded both the Military Cross and the Legion D'Honneur for his services. Nightingale subsequently served with the 46th Battalion Royal Fusiliers in the North Russian Relief Force, part of the invasion of Russia by the English, Irish and the Americans. The operation was conducted under the command of General H. de V. Sadleir-Jackson.Arriving in Archangel on 5 June 1919, the 46th proceeded along the Dvina River to Osinova where preparations were made for an attack on rail and river transport. The objective was to repel the Red Army from their established positions and generally improve the position of the White Russian forces. The hope was that the NRRF would be able to subsequently withdraw without significant casualties. In addition, smaller raids on Red Army positions were carried out to the south, partly to destabilize them, partly as reconnaissance. Nightingale was in command of the Borok Column on the right bank of the Dvina River for the August 10 offensive.The first photos are of the H.M.T. "War Summit" & H.M.T. "Pretorian" chugging through the Arctic Ocean and White Sea in Midsummer, June 1919 on its way to Archangel. They were billeted at Troitsa and among the many images of the town and its surroundings is one of where the mutiny of Dyer's Battalion took place. Equally, there are shots of Russian batteries, Allied defenses, company headquarters and regimental aid posts, as well as images of the Dvina River, Yaroslovskoe and Selso. A page is devoted to "Col. Davies Headquarters at Commencement of Action Aug 10th" and shows how the British troops organized themselves in the Selmenga Forest, namely with three shots of "Piccadilly Circus (Selmenga Forest) with Shaftesbury Avenue and Regent Street."The attack commenced at noon and, despite the difficulty of the terrain, was successful. We know that Borok (Nightingale's objective) was reported captured, along with 80 POWs, by eleven o'clock that evening. Nightingale was evacuated in late September.This is not only a record of the battle but includes many poignant personal touches too. Namely, there are several shots of men with whom he served and the Russians with whom he stayed. The captions not only name the men in each photograph, but in many cases reveal their fate: "Lt Taylor (killed Aug 10th) Lt Grant (wounded Aug 1st) Capt. Driver (killed Aug 10th)."The album also includes a typed order - dated September 9, 1919 - which is a reminder that, despite the success of the August attack, the Russian Civil War was ongoing and would ultimately be won by the Bolsheviks. "You will send one platoon to SELMENGA to hold the SELMENGA BRIDGE and the beach road to GORODOK. The enemy are known to be in force in the vicinity of BOROK and GORODOK and may attempt an outflanking movement ? The platoon remain in position there, and will withdraw when Captain de Miremont with the GORODOK Infantry comes through there tonight ? The Platoon should form a right flank guard to Captain de Miremont from SALMENGA to PLESS."The photographs of Russia occupy the first half of the album, the rest is devoted to Nightingale's time in Ireland with the 7th Cadet Battalion. Despite his distinguished service in the military, Nightingale's fate was a melancholy one. He died in 1935, reportedly either by suicide (using his own revolver) of from alcoholism. Contemporary gray cloth, ms. title to upper board, upper joint wearing but holding nicely Photographs measuring 6 x 4 inches and smaller. 1 vols. Oblong 8vo (8 3/4 x 6 1/2 inches)

        [Photo Album]: Two Photo Albums: New England Family, Boating, and the U.S.S. Shenandoah

      Providence, Rhode Island. 1919-1926; 1926-1929. Two photo albums. Oblong quartos. Measuring 7" x 11". String-tied black textured leather over flexible paper boards with "Photographs" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 778 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs between the two albums, measuring between 2.5" x 3" and 5.5" x 8", some with captions. Both albums are very good with rips and tears on the boards; the later album's rear board is detached but present, with near fine photographs.Two photo albums kept by a member of the Parsons' family in New England between 1919 and 1929 mostly in Rhode Island and Connecticut. The albums contain a massive amount of photos, nearly 800, all capturing the upper middle class family, who made their money in the brass industry, through the decade of the 1920s. The family were avid boating enthusiasts and the album is full of photos of a variety of boats and small ships, as well as of people posing on and around them. Most of the vessels are named in the album including sailboats named Swift Wind and Resolute, as well as Mischief and the H.M.S. Wraith. These photos also show men in the rigging of the ships repairing and working on them as well as ships on land being built and painted. A variety of family members of all ages can be seen enjoying the excursions from grandma to the (obviously well-beloved) family dog. One group of photos shows the family on a trip to Quebec and includes the family boat, Nada, as well as photos of the various waterways. There is also a sketch of a sailboat laid-in, drawn on letterhead, which reads, "on board the Pontiac." Also documented throughout the album are a number of births in the family with photos of chubby newborns with their nurses, mothers, and fathers. Later in the album there are a number of photos of the USS Shenandoah which was the first of four U.S. Navy rigid airships. The 14 photos show the Shenandoah "tied up to the USS Patoka" docked in Newport in August of 1924. Patoka was the first ship used as an "airship tender" and in 1924 an "experimental mooring mast" was added to the oiler as well as a variety of accommodations for the crew of both the oiler and the airship. These photos show the Shenandoah moored in Newport shortly after the mast was erected. To test the mast and airship the Shenandoah flew from New Jersey to California and then continued on to Washington State, making it the first airship to fly across North America. A little over a year after it was constructed the airship was caught in a storm over Ohio and crashed.Also included in the album are obituaries for Phineas F. Parsons and Edmund Hayden (E.H.) Parsons, who appear to be the patriarchs of the family. Both men had ties with the brass industry. Phineas, the elder Parsons, who died at age 91 was a well-regarded member of the jewelry community with a career spanning over 60 years. E.H. died around the same time as his father after being "suddenly stricken" with an illness at 73. He spent 30 years in the brass trade before retiring to take over Locust Farms in Warwick. One photo shows the family on "Gramp's Birthday" on the farm in 1922.An interesting look at a New England family in the 1920s with an emphasis on the boating culture of a Rhode Island. .

        Histoire de Minoutchehr selon Le Livre des Rois.

      1919 - Illustrée par Michel SIMONIDY. Paris, Piazza, 1919, in-8, plein maroquin bleu, plats encadrés d'un décor mosaïqué géométrique orientaliste, dos orné et titré à 4 nerfs, gardes plein maroquin bordé de cinq filets dorés et d'un décor géométrique orientaliste, contregarde tissé de motifs géométriques, tranches dorées, sous étuit papier reliure bordé de maroquin bleu signé, 184 pages complétées d'une double suite. (E. Maylander). Exemplaire nominatif (Jean Lindet numéro J), un des 25 exemplaires sur Japon avec deux états des illustrations. L'histoire du roi Minoutchehr constitue le septième chapitre du Shahnameh, Le Livre des Rois écrit par le poète Firdousi vers l'an 387 de l'hégire. Première grande œuvre de la littérature persane, ce fameux poème épique est considéré en Iran comme le livre national par excellence, au même titre que L'Illiade peut l'être en Grèce. La traduction en français, due à Jules Mohl (1838-1878), membre de l'Institut et professeur au Collège de France, est la meilleure de celles qui ont été faites dès le XIXe siècle, époque où Le Livre des Rois commença à être apprécié en Europe. Cet ouvrage est illustré de 49 compositions en couleurs rehaussées d'or et d'argent de Michel Simonidy : 1 frontispice, 10 hors texte, encadrements, en-têtes, lettrines et culs-de-lampe. Élève du célèbre maître pompier Léon Bonnat, ce peintre orientaliste d'origine roumaine (1870-1933), fait ici la preuve de ses talents de paysagiste, d'animalier et de peintre de nus. Ses compositions dépeignent tour à tour danses enfièvrées, langueurs des harems, caravanes, paysages nocturnes, combats d'animaux, charme sauvage des femmes et grandeur des princes. Cet exemplaire est enrichi d'une aquarelle à pleine page (22.4 x 16 cm) représentant une magnifique odalisque dansant à demi-nue ceinte aux hanches d'un saro, elle reléve son voile lumineux et laisse apparaître une magnifique chevelure noire ébéne. Ex-libris de Lalau pour H. Mareus. La préciosité du style orientaliste et le raffinement extrême de la reliure du maître E. Maylander constitue pour ce livre un écrin merveilleux. Livres

Wolf & Sohn zu München in einer einmaligen numerierten Auflage von 220 Exemplaren gedruckt. Die Herausgabe wurde besorgt von Georg Martin Richter und Curt Moreck. Dieses Exemplar erhielt die Nummer III\", signiert von Rudolf Grossmann. - Mit dabei die Original-Flügelmappe, enthaltend eine signierte Original-Bleistiftzeichnung, Titelblatt und 25 ebenfalls signierte Blätter von Rudolf Grossmann - \"Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können.\" Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14. - Lederhandband, Lederausgabe, Lederband, Bibliophilie, Handeinband, deutsche Kunstbuchbinderei / Buchkunst im 20.Jahrhundert, illustrierte Bücher, Weimarer Klassik. - Erstausgabe in sehr guter Erhaltung; weitere Fotos s.Nr.21168!

        Carrousels et Baraques.

      4to. Original cream buckram-backed pictorial white boards with original crimson ribbon to fore-edge; containing 3 unstitched quires (pp. 4; 12; 8, as issued), printed on handmade paper, with engraved text and illustration printed in grey together with 6 fine wood-engravings printed in colour on China paper, each mounted-at-large on cream card, and housed within a folder at the rear; an exceptionally fresh copy, both internally and externally, with all the plates in immaculate condition. First edition, limited edition. One of only 110 numbered copies on papier de Chine, of which this is example number 87. Forty additional copies were issued with the text vignettes coloured by hand. Edgard Tytgat (1879-1957) was a Belgian painter, printmaker, etcher and watercolorist who illustrated many books including Little Red Riding Hood and The Magic Flute. He studied at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Brussels where he forged friendships with other future artists including Rik Wouters and Fernand Verhaegen. His style is impressionist, often described as naïve, and is imbued with a gentle poetry. In his preface to this work Tytgat recalls his fond memories of local village fairs in his homeland: "Pour mieux sentir les charmes dans les moeurs et les coutumes de son pays, il faut en être exilé. Ainsi mes quatre années véçues à Londres, me font miroiter en souvenirs, toutes les étincelles des perles sur le velour noir et des petites glaces aux mille et un reflets ornant les carrousels et baraques de mon village...".
