        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...".

        Die [anderen unbekannten] Venezianischen Epigrammen.

      8vo., (210 ? 138 mm), pp. 57, [1]; printed in red and blue; uncut in the original publisher?s boards.Limited edition (500 copies printed, this being no. 3), designed by Leopold Fuchs, after which the types were destroyed. This copy contains 53 original colour illustrations, (finished to varying degrees), some of them erotic, one below each epigram, by the Expressionist artist Erich Büttner, who has also removed the title-page (noting on the stub: ?Was einst der Herr von Goethe bewitzelt hat nun ein Maler ausgekritzelt?, quasi ?What once Goethe poked fun at a painter has now scribbled out?), decorated the endpapers and painted over the covers. A pencil note, by Büttner, below the colophon reveals that this copy was made as a Christmas present for the bibliophile Emil Tuchmann in 1927. Büttner (1889-1936) was a member of the Berlin Secession, producing portraits of fellow artists George Grosz, Lovis Corinth, Arno Holz, and Heinrich Zille. He also designed book plates, notably Albert Einstein?s in 1917. Rodenberg, Deutsche Pressen, p. 408 (the first of Banas & Dette?s ?Hölderlin-Drucke?, 1919-22).

        British Economic Mission to Serbia. Technological Section. General Report.

      Foolscap folio. Original red cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt ('Confidential - Advance Copy'); many parts of typed carbon-copied reports, several with signature of the Llewellyn at the end, others signed by other members of the mission, with one ink and wash plate of locomotives, three large folding maps in ink and watercolour, one large folding colour-printed lithographic map of the of mining activities in Yugoslavia, two statistical folding tables, photographic illustrations of agricultural machinery of three leaves, one plate of sections of sewage drains, 6 plates of river ports and depictions of the rail-river transport interface and a large folding plan of Split and surroundings; only light wear to binding, endpapers a bit browned, a few short marginal tears to folds of the maps, otherwise in very good condition. This unique, impressive tome was compiled after the First World War in order to assess the damage and explore the possibilities of the reconstruction and development of Serbia and its neighbouring countries, which were to form Yugoslavia. 'The Mission was sent in two contingents, of which the first had already returned, the object of the Mission being to investigate commercial conditions generally in Serbia and also reconstruction problems in engineering and public works, transportation, agriculture, timber, mining, town-planning, and sanitation. The official members of the Mission included no direct representative of any specific business interest. The first contingent of the Mission was, however, accompanied in an unofficial capacity by a representative of the Levant Company and a representative of the Associated British Manufacturers. The Mission was not intended to take the place of private initiative, but it is affording any facilities in its power to representatives in Serbia of British firms ... The Economic Mission to Serbia was sent out in two contingents. The first contingent consisted of (1) Mr. E. C. D. Rawlins, Commercial Secretary for Serbia and Greece; (2) Lieutenant-Colonel C. E. Jordan Bell, R.E., War Office; (3) Mr. F. A. Llewellyn, Office of Works; (4) Mr. W. Trask, nominated by the Federation of British Industries. This contingent was accompanied in an unofficial capacity by ... Mr. A. E. Tabor, of the Levant Company, and Captain T. G. Mapplebeck, of the Associated British Manufacturers. The second contingent consists of (1) Mr. F. A. Llewellyn, Office of Works; (2) Captain E. C. Foot, Forestry Corps of Canadian Army; (3) Mr. G. E. Farrar, Office of Works; (4) Mr. C. L. K. Foot, ex-Manager of Government Stock Farm at Alington; (5) Mr. F. H. Cerrito, Office of Works; and (6) Mr. G. W. Tully, Office of Works (Scottish Branch). Mr. Rawlins was in charge of the Mission attached to it. Mr. F. A. Llewellyn has since been in charge' (Sir H. Greenwood in Hansard, 15 July 1919 vol. 118 cc186-8). Not much else is recorded about that British mission, apart from the cornucopia of information presented here on the economics, infrastructure, ethnic mix, as well as spas, nutrition and food production, topography, navigability of rivers, the increased responsibility of women in the workplace and a British assessment of the psyche ('temperament') of the inhabitants. .

        Il poema dello spazio

      Facchi 1919 (ma finito di stampare il 10 novembre 1918) collezione diretta da Maria Ginanni, 8°, br., pp.139 - (5), firma di appartenza, ritratto f.t. dell'autrice di Arnaldo Ginna. Brossura con grafica di Arnaldo Ginna. Maria Ginanni, moglie di Arnaldo Ginna, fu la più carismatica del nutrito gruppo femminile dei futuristi e direttrice della importante collana "L'Italia Futurista". La Ginanni non sposò le istanze più estreme del protofemminismo ma si limitò a scrivere bei libri, fra cui il presente, in cui si limitava ad esprimere, cercando di darle dignità, la sensibilità femminile, un "romanticismo cerebrale" non condiviso da tutti i futuristi. Nonostante la moderazione dell'autrice è possibile leggere alcuni commenti maschilisti a penna, probabilmente coevi, di un possessore che critica l'autrice e che la incita a rimanere in cucina, a fare la calza (e altro) a dimostrazione di quanto fossero moderni certi temi nell'Italia degli anni '20. # Prima edizione.

        Le Film (33 Issues)

      Paris: Pathe Freres, 1919. Original wraps. Very Good +. Hebdomadaire. 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.

        Fighting the Flying Circus

      New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company. Near Fine. 1919. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. Maps; SIGNED EDITION. This copy has been signed, with a short inscription, by the author, Edward Rickenbacker, on the reverse of the half title page. This copy has also been signed and inscribed by George A. Zabriski "President of the NY Historical Society from 1939 to 1947" and an amateur hand-tooler / binder of note. This copy of Rickenbacker's famous book has been rebound in 1/4 leather with marbled paper covered boards, and has gilt lettering and decorations and raised bands on the spine. The book is in Near Fine condition - with some wear to the edges of the marbled paper on the front board, along with some light bowing to the front boards. The text pages are clean and bright. The front and rear panels of the dust jacket have been bound in at the rear of the book. From Wikipedia: "Most men chosen for pilot training had college degrees and Rickenbacker had to struggle to gain permission to fly because of his perceived lack of academic qualifications. Because of his mechanical abilities, Rickenbacker was assigned as engineering officer at the 3rd Aviation Instruction Center at Issoudun, the US Air Service's pursuit training facility,where he practiced flying during his free time. He learned to fly well, but because his skills were so highly valued, Rickenbacker's superiors tried to prevent him from attaining his wings with the other pilots. Rickenbacker demonstrated that he had a qualified replacement, and the military awarded him a place in one of America's air combat units, the 94th Aero Squadron, informally known as the "Hat-in-the-Ring" Squadron after its insignia. Originally he flew the Nieuport 28, at first without armament. On April 29, 1918, Rickenbacker shot down his first plane. On May 28, he claimed his fifth to become an ace. Rickenbacker was awarded the French Croix de Guerre that month for his five victories." Rickenbacker went on to amass 26 reported (and confirmed) kills during World War I, setting a record that was not broken until World War II. He also logged a total of 300 combat hours, reportedly the most of an US pilot during the war. ; Signed by Author .

AN EXCEPTIONAL COPY OF THE DE LUXE LIMITED FIRST EDITION SIGNED BY ARTIST ARTHUR RACKHAM. The work is a collection of early English ballads, perhaps inspired by wartime patriotism. Here we find a generous sampling of Rackham’s famous styles, subjects and atmospheres. We encounter mythic gnomes and lithe damsels, brooding dark birds perched and overlooking stark plains, slender maidens greeting their princes, and sinister scenes lit by dim starlight. The graceful line drawings introducing each ballad conjure fanciful creatures and lively human encounters. The color plates vividly depict the subject of the ballads and act to translate the now archaic verse into the timeless language of Rackham’s articulate illustration. We find Rackham’s eloquent brush again and again creating irresistible sentiment and emotional texture . This sentimental rendering of traditional English Ballads is sure to be a treasured addition to any serious Arthur Rackham collection.

        Autograph letter signed in full to the noted Czech-born Austrian architect Adolf Loos

      - 1/2 page text to recto with floor plan (by Loos?) in pencil to verso. Small octavo, 215 x 132 mm. Dated Mödling, near Vienna, February 7, 1919. Schoenberg's name and address handstamped in purple ink to upper left corner. In German (with translation).Schoenberg suggests an answer to the "call" of the French writer Henri Barbusse for his pacifist "Clarté" movement. He suggests times that he would be available for a possible meeting:"Dear Herr Loos, in my opinion we should react to Henri Barbusse's call that was in the papers of February 5. Ideally, the three of us: you, Kraus, and I. Would you like to discuss that with me?."Creased at folds and overall; minor remnants of archival paper mounting tape to verso. Unpublished (except for the incipit on the website of Arnold Schönberg Center, Vienna). Adolf Loos (1870-1933) was a famous early modern architect. "Kraus" is probably a reference to the writer and journalist Karl Kraus (1874-1936), a friend of both Loos and Schoenberg. Henri Barbusse (1873-1935) was a French writer, quite famous in his time; he founded the "Clarté" movement in 1919 together with Romain Rolland.

        La Chirurgie Esthétique des Rides du Visage. [In: La Presse Médicale. No 27. Lundi, 12 Mai 1919].

      (Paris), 1919. Folio. Entire issue 27, 1919 of La Presse Médicale present (pp. 353- 360). Passot's article: 7 columns on pp. 258-261. With one illustration, depicting the ways to reduce wrinkles on a face. Well preserved.. The very rare first printing of this pioneering work of plastic surgery - one of the very first - most likely THE first - publication on face lifting, consisting mainly in the elevating and redraping of the facial skin. The first facelift was reportedly done in either 1901 or 1907, but "[n]ot all writers of rhytidectomy spread their innovations through publication; some were teachers instead of writers. Sooner or later, however, those they taught began to write. Giving credit to his masters, Pozzi and Morestin, as well as Mlle. Pertat, Raymond Passot in 1919 described the following technique for eliminating cheek wrinkles and the buccolabial sulcus: First, he began the operation by "withdrawing miniscule amounts of tegument in the preauricular region, using as a limit the lower part of the male's sideburns and the region onto which the mass of the female feair falls...." (Gonzales-Ulloa, The Creation of Aesthetic Surgery, p. 43). The paper is extremely famous, not only due to its great influence, but also because it has come to be regarded as a milestone publication in the history of face lifting, being perhaps the very first publication to describe this now so popular method of rejuvenation. "There is still doubt as to who performed the first facelift, but most sources date it to the first decade of the 20th century.... Hollander... in 1932 stated that his original procedure had been preformed in 1901 for a Polish aristocrat. Lexer, however, reported in 1931 that he had preformed a facelift for and acr´tress in 1906 and that he was unaware of any such operation before that date. Joseph reported in 1921 that he had preformed an operation in 1912 for cerrection of aging cheek tissues in a 48-year-old woman. By the time Hollander, lexer, and Joseph reported their first procedures, a number of other prominent surgeons in Europe, such as Noel, Passot, Morseting... were busy performing cosmetic surgical procedures.... Passot in 1919 published an illustrated article showing sites of elliptic skin excision of the hairline, the forehead, and the temporal and preauricular areas to tighten the skin and an elliptic excision of skin and fat to reduce submental fat deposits." (Neligan, Plastic Surgery, vol. 6, p. 184). "In France, Passot was the first surgeon to describe the submental excision to correct a double chin and multiple facial direct excisions in 1919 in his article "La chirurgie esthétiques des rides du visage". (Panfilov, Aesthetic Surgery of the Facial Mosic, p. 5)
