        Izdanie Teatral'nogo otdela Narodn. komissariata po prosveshcheniiu

      Moskva: TEO Narkomprosa, 1919-21. Wrappers, 4to. (Vishnevskii 436). "Bulletin of the Theatre". Format and frequency varied. 3 times a week from Feb 1, 1919 , Semiweekly from Mar. 25, 1919 to June 1919 and weekly from Sept . 1919 to Aug. 15, 1921. Almost all are 4to. folded sheets, but issue 11 is newspaper format and stapled. [ The newspaper "Vestnik teatre", inspired and virtually edited by Meierkhol'd became the herald of (the movement) "Theatrical October". Until Meierkhol'd's appointment to the Theatrical Department (TEO) of the People's Commissariat of Education, "Vestnik teatra" had been content to report general information about the latest events in the theatrical world. After his accession, its articles immediately took on a tone of unprecedented sharpness, even aggressiveness: the term 'civil war in the theatre' was used, and time and again the expression 'theatrical front' appeared. The newspaper alleged that the old theatres, the 'aky' (academic theatres), were quite simply 'nests of reaction', shelters for both overt and covert enemies of the Revolution, and maintained that the Revolution would not tolerate the existence of such 'nests' for long - from: Rudnitsky; Russian and Soviet Theater 1905 - 1932 page 59 ]. Many have program inserts - many issues were available to be sold with and without program inserts at different prices. Issue 68 has articles on and conversations with Meierkhol'd. Issue 71 has a "deklaratsiia" "declaration" by Meierkhol'd over 2 pages long taken from a speech of October 1920 ten days before. Seventy-one original issues comprising 77 numbers (six were double numbers) mostly in good or better condition. Some numbers are uncut.

        Original large three-quarter length portrait photograph signed in full, dated New York 1920, and inscribed to the American writer on music and librettist Frederick H. Martens (1874-1932).

      From the studios of Strauss Peyton, Kansas City, 1919. Ca. 327 x 228 mm. Laid down to cardboard mount. Slightly worn; occasional cracking; remnants of adhesive to mount. . "The winning quality of the sound, the tender mezza voce (particularly in the early years), and his phrasing, based on a rare mastery of legato and portamento, enabled Caruso to sing the French and Italian lyric repertory as well as lighter operas. In addition, his noble, incisive declamation, his broad, generous phrasing, and his vigor in dramatic outbursts made him a notable interpreter of Verdi as well as of French grand opéra. In this repertory his performances were characterized by the irresistible erotic appeal of his timbre allied to a temperament as warm and vehement as his voice. His numerous recordings, now faithfully remastered on CD, not only made him universally famous, they also did much to encourage the acceptance of recording as a medium for opera." Rodolfo Celletti and Alan Blyth in Grove online. Martens' books include The Art of the Prima Donna and Concert Singer (New York, 1923), The Book of the Opera and the Ballet, History of the Opera (New York, 1925) and A Thousand and One Nights of Opera (New York, 1926).

        Pastor Ephraim Magnus. Drama.

      Fischer,, Berlin, 1919 - Berlin, Fischer, 1919. 8°. 267 + 1 S. Priv. Hld. der Zeit. EA. WG II 1. Mit eighd. Widm. Jahnns an Fred A. Angermayer (1889 - 1951). Regiebuch mit zahlreichen Streichungen und einigen Anmerkungen von der Hand Bertolt Brechts und Arnolt Bronnens. Dies über den Rückentitel und hds. Vergleiche erschließbar. - Leichte Gbrsp. - Auf dem Programm der Erstaufführung des Stückes 1923 in Berlin wird Bronnen als alleiniger Regisseur genannt. Allein aus dem Beitrag zu einer Festschrift anläßlich des 60. Geburtstages Jahnns, schreibt Brecht darüber, auch - neben Jahnn - bei den Proben dabeigewesen zu sein und diese geleitet zu haben. Hier nun ein Beleg für diese Behauptung. - Jahnn (1894 - 1954): die Begegnung mit Gottlieb Harms (1893-1931) noch auf der Schule war das prägende Jugenderlebnis. Aus Protest verließen beide Deutschland und verbrachten die Jahre 1915-18 in Norwegen. Hier fanden sie zu jener Weltanschauung, die nach der Rückkehr nach Deutschland 1919 zur Gründung der "Glaubensgemeinde Ugrino" führte. Resakralisierung des Daseins und ein Wiederaufrichten der Schöpfungstotalität war das Ziel Jahnns und seiner Freunde. Bedeutend war sein Beitrag zur Orgelreformbewegung der zwanziger Jahre. Als Orgelbauer renovierte und entwarf er mehr als hundert Instrumente, von denen sich heute lediglich die Lichtwark-Orgel (Heinrich-Hertz-Schule, Hamburg) in einem spielfähigen Zustand befindet. Schon seit seinem 14. Lebensjahr hat er Romane und Dramen geschrieben. In diesen jugendlichen Inszenierungen zum Dichter ist der Weg zum späteren Werk eingeschlagen: der Versuch, menschlichem Handeln und Erleiden bis in die verschwiegensten Finsternisse der Seele zu folgen, der Jahnn zum Außenseiter und Einzelgänger machen sollte. Seine ersten gültigen Werke - die Dramen Pastor Ephraim Magnus (1919), Die Krönung Richards III. (1921) und Medea (1926) - suchen die Wahrheit im Exzeß, in der Überschreitung der bürgerlichen Ordnung und stürzen Figuren wie Zuschauer in "vulkanische Lebensgefahr" (Oskar Loerke) . 1920 bekam Hans Henny Jahnn den Kleist-Preis für sein Drama Pastor Ephraim Magnus. Das machte ihn einerseits schlagartig als Dichter bekannt, andererseits erntete er viel Kritik aus konservativen und kirchlichen Kreisen für dieses Werk wegen seines als anstößig empfundenen Inhaltes in Bezug auf die Brutalität der Szenen, Darstellung sexueller Gewalt und die Nutzung und bewusste Überzeichnung und Übertragung des Kreuzigungstodes auf seine Hauptfigur, was ihm späterhin sein Leben als Orgelbauer schwer machte.

      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. Colour frontispiece and 87 half-tone plates, folding map at the rear. With the ownership stamp of Edwin Mickleburgh to the front pastedown. Mickleburgh was a member of the British Antarctic Survey from 1968 to 1971, and the author of Beyond the Frozen Sea, an account of his experiences and the history of discovery and exploration in Antarctica. Pencilled signature to front free endpaper. Spine rolled, spine ends and tips a little worn, hinges cracked but holding, text block remains tight, contents uniformly browned as usual, short closed tear to folding map stub, as often seen. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. An attractively, but sadly not solidly, produced book of Shackleton's account of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. "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."

In August 1918 Whitmore became co-commander of the brigade (page 104 and following of the present work). "On the outbreak of war Bickersteth joined the Royal Dragoons, and served with them in France until demobilization; during long periods of cavalry inactivity he wrote and completed A History of the 6th Cavalry Brigade (1919); but he was also frequently in heavy fighting, and twice won the Military Cross" (ODNB).

"Although Gibran's artistic output never matched his literary creativity in terms of popular appeal or professional influence, for him the canvas represented another form in which his poetry could be expressed. By the time of his death, his artworks numbered more than 2,000 in various mediums: oil, watercolour, pencil, and ink. Today, these works are widely scattered in public galleries and private collections in the United States; a small number are in Paris, and some 500 other are held by the Bisharri Museum in Lebanon" (Suheil Bushrui, Essays in Arabic Literary Biography 1850-1950, pp. 176-77).

        Einstein's Postcard to Heinrich Teweles

      Dated on December 23, [1919] - Signed, handwritten and typed postcard. With 3 lines postscript in Einstein's hand. The country on verso and the greeting line on recto in Ilse Einstein's hand. Written as a response to Teweles's article, appeared on 18 December 1919. It "was a humorous piece, describing the narrators nightmare of his unsuccessful struggles attempting to learn Einstein's theory in his Gymnasium physics class. Subsequently, he invited a young scholar of physics and astronomy to eat at his home and explain Einstein's work, and read various articles on the subject. Einstein may have found the article appealing since he himself had criticized the final examinations at the Gymnasium as causes of nightmares." (Kormos Buchwald et al.; 2004.) A postscript added in Einstein's hand: "Aber den Born haben Sie mit dem Drill verwechselt. Gut, dass es mein Freund Born nicht weiss, sonst kriegt er auch einen Angsttraum!" This refers to that part of Teweles's article where he describes Max Born as "a raging Kantian, a Kantian who is raging Einstein", who denied the possibility of a curved space. Heinrich Teweles (1856-1927) was a Bohemian-Austrian playwright, theatre critic and journalist, the former editor of the Prager Tageblatt. Ref.: No. 231 in: Kormos Buchwald, D.; Schulmann, R.; Illy J, J. Kennefick, D.; Sauer, T.: The collected papers of Albert Einstein. Volume 9, The Berlin years. Correspondence, January 1919 - April 1920. Princeton : Princeton University Press, 2004. pp. 323-324. Folded once. In fine condition. Signed, handwritten and typed postcard. With 3 lines postscript in Einstein's hand. The country on verso and the greeting line on recto in Ilse Einstein's hand. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Entgegen den Angaben bei Dahmen unsere Blätter nicht bezeichnet. Lene Schneider-Kainer wurde als Kind jüdischer Eltern in Wien geboren. Während eines Aufenthalts in Paris lernte sie den Münchner Arzt, Maler, Graphiker, Plakatkünstler und Bühnendekorateur Ludwig Kainer kennen, den sie wenig später heiratete. Das Ehepaar Kainer gehörte seit 1911 zum Bekanntenkreis von Arnold Schönberg, Franz Werfel, Herwarth Walden und Else Lasker-Schüler (Schneider-Kainer porträtierte diese auch um 1915 auf einem Gemälde). 1917 hatte sie ihre erste große Einzelausstellung in der Galerie Gurlitt in Berlin und wurde als Malerin und Illustratorin in der Metropole berühmt. 1919 -1922 entstanden lithographische Mappenwerke erotischen Inhalts mit Titeln wie "Zehn weibliche Akte" oder "Vor dem Spiegel", großes Aufsehen erregten die über 30 erotischen Illustrationen, die in einer Ausgabe von "Die Hetärengespräche des Lukian" erschienen. 1926 trennte sie sich von Kainer, verließ nach ihrer Scheidung Berlin und begleitete zwei Jahre den Dichter Bernhard Kellermann auf einer Asienreise. Während dieser Reise malte und zeichnete sie nicht nur, sondern nahm auch die Photos zu Kellermanns Reisebericht "Der Weg der Götter" (Berlin 1929) auf. 1933 emigrierte sie über Ibiza nach New York und lebte ab 1954 in Bolivien, wo sie ihrem Sohn beim Aufbau einer Stofffabrik half und 1971 starb.

        Le Bestiaire ou cortège d'Orphée

      Paris: Éditions de La Sirène,, 1919. Illustré par Raoul Dufy. Square octavo. Original yellow wrappers, black lettered spine and front cover. 30 full-page wood-engravings, head- and tailpiece by Raoul Dufy. Spine lightly sunned, chipped at head and tail. An exceptional copy. Second edition and the only realistically procurable edition of one of the great illustrated books of the 20th century, first issued in 1911. This is number 1,165 of 1,250 copies. "Apollinaire conceived of the idea of an illustrated bestiary in verse after seeing wood engravings of animals made by Picasso in 1906. He later turned to Dufy for depictions of Orpheus and his accompanying creatures. The combination of his witty and idiosyncratic poems and Dufy's thirty bold, large-scale designs makes this one of the most delightful of livres de peintres" (Ray). Apollinaire, seriously wounded in 1916, succumbed to the influenza pandemic in 1918. To this edition his collaborator Dufy contributes a brief prefatory note, commenting on the rarity of the first edition and mentioning "la mort soudaine" of the poet.Decidedly scarce: Copac records two copies in British and Irish institutional libraries (Tate Britain, King's College London), OCLC adding two more in France (BnF, Mediatheque de Montpellier) and none elsewhere.

        British War Cabinet Document Receipt from the Villa Majestic, Paris, signed by Winston Churchill on 17 May 1919 during the Paris Peace Conference

      Paris, 1919. This intriguing piece of history is a document receipt signed by Winston Churchill on 17 May 1919 while attending the Paris Peace Conference.  The receipt measures roughly 5 x 4 inches, printed and stamped in purple ink on plain white stock, with autograph in both pencil and red.  The words ?"RECEIVED from ?-?" and ?"ADDRESSED to ?-?" as well as a line for ?"Signature?" are printed in purple and the upper right corner bears the oval stamp, also in purple, of the ?"BRITISH WAR CABINET * VILLA MAJESTIC, PARIS *?" date stamped ?"17 MAY 1919?".  In pencil below ?"RECEIVED from ?-?" is ?"B.E.D. Notice?" (?"B.E.D." being the abbreviation for "British Empire Delegation").  In pencil beside and below ?"ADDRESSED to ?-?" is ?"The Rt Hon Winston Churchill, M.P.?"  On the signature line, in red, Churchill signed ?"WS CHURCHILL?".  The receipt?'s upper blank verso retains a fragment of the document for which it was ostensibly the affixed receipt.  During the 1919 Paris Peace Conference, the British government delegation resided at the Hotel Majestic.  In May 1919 Churchill was serving as British Secretary of State for War and Air.  Only in his mid-40s and still two decades away from becoming Prime Minister, he was nonetheless already a polarizing national figure who had held several important Cabinet positions and been a political force since the turn of the century.  In the First World War, Churchill remarkably served both in the Cabinet and on the front, nearly losing his political life in the former and his corporeal life in the latter.  Churchill was First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, but was scapegoated for the Dardanelles tragedy and the slaughter at Gallipoli and forced to resign.  He would spend part of his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches.  By the war's end, he was exonerated and rejoined the Government, initially as Minister of Munitions.  In January 1919, Churchill became Secretary of State for War and Air ?- the same month that the Paris Peace Conference convened.  On 17 May 1919, Churchill arrived in Paris at 2:00 am.  His meetings in Paris that day included Field Marshal Sir Henry Hughes Wilson (Chief of the Imperial General Staff), Lord Alfred Milner (Secretary of State for the Colonies), Edwin Samuel Montagu (Secretary of State for India), General Maharaja Sir Ganga Singh, and Edward George Villiers Stanley (Lord Derby, British Ambassador to France).  Issues commanding his attention ranged from occupation of Jellalabad, to who would be British Military Attache in Paris, to his exhaustive efforts to secure support for anti-Bolshevik factions in Russia.  Perhaps quintessentially Churchillian, Winston was described on 17 May 1919 by Sir Henry Wilson as being both ?"in good form?" and ?"very mulish.?"  (Diary of Sir Henry Wilson, Gilbert, CV IV, Part I, p.654)  Churchill expressed profound ?- and ultimately prophetic ?- reservations about harshly punitive terms in the Treaty of Versailles, which was signed on 28 June 1919, six weeks after Churchill signed this receipt.  On 7 July 1921, Churchill would tell the Imperial Conference in London: ?"The aim is to get an appeasement of the fearful hatreds and antagonisms which exist in Europe…?"  Advocating a policy of reconciliation, Churchill wanted Britain to be both ?"the ally of France and the friend of Germany?" to mitigate ?"the frightful rancour and fear and hatred?" between France and Germany which he warned ?"if left unchecked, will most certainly in a generation or so bring about a renewal of the struggle of which we have just witnessed the conclusion.?" Churchill?'s argument did not prevail.  The triumphant army of a bitterly resurgent Germany would set up its headquarters in the ex-Hotel Majestic after France?'s conquest in June 1940, a month after Churchill became wartime Prime Minister.  This item comes to us from the collection of British book collector and book seller David B. Mayou, known for his knowledge and collection of Churchill material.

        Big Little H.G. Wells. With an Introduction by G.K. Chesterton

      London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd, 1919. Not Published. Proof sheets, printed on rectos only. [4] ff., [17]-150 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Unbound sheets, loose in trial case binding of maroon cloth. Traces of dampstaining across top. Not Published. Proof sheets, printed on rectos only. [4] ff., [17]-150 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Not Published. The proof copy of Edwin Pugh's work on H.G. Wells, set up in preparation for publication by Thornton Butterworth, and not published after Wells took exception. The "introduction" by G.K. Chesterton is not present. The book describes in considerable detail Wells' early career, including his friendships with George Gissing, Stephen Crane, Jospeh Conrad, and others; and looks at much of Wells} early work. Portions were serialized in the weekly New Witness, July 4th to August 15th, 1919, accepted by Chesterton's sub-editor W.R. Titterton (to whom this volume is dedicated. Chesteron deflected Wells' wrath by suggesting that "sudden demands of other duties" had prevented him from "attending" to the journal, and by publishing Wells' response in the New Witness. Wells later wrote "From first to last [Chesterton] and I were very close friends and never for a moment did I consider him responsible for Pugh's pathetic and silly outburst." With two loosely inserted typed memoranda giving background on Pugh and the controversy. The first, dated 25 September 1923, and signed Joseph Anthony, notes that the book "gives a vivid and idyllic picture of Wells's early period ... he half loves well, half detests him"; the second, dated 3 October, concludes against publication. There is no indication of the American publishing house for which these memoranda were prepared. Pugh was a novelist and writer whose works included The Purple Head (1905) and The Dickens Originals (1912). A RARE AND FASCINATING SURVIVAL.

Paris: A La Belle Edition, 1919. |~||~||~||~| First Edition of one of the first written tributes to the genius of Picasso. Cocteau wrote the work in 1916 but was unable at the time to find a publisher. The clever typographical layout resulted in the accusation from John Richardson that the book is a "slick pastiche of Mallarme," but he does go on to say that Cocteau was the only writer to have understood the significance of Picasso's Seated Man. One of an edition of 339 copies, this being one of the 300 on Verge d'Arches. A remarkably scarce book.
