        Fine large original photograph signed "Enrico Caruso" and inscribed to the prominent Moravian soprano Maria Jeritza

      - Full-length role portrait of the famed tenor as the Duke of Mantua in Verdi's Rigoletto by A. Bert, Paris, ca. 210 x 134 mm. Signed and inscribed in black ink at lower portion "À Madame Jeritza - la belle Marie. Sincerement Enrico Caruso Wien 1919." Laid down to original ivory mount (ca. 350 x 260 mm.) with photographer's name embossed at lower right.Slightly worn, soiled and foxed, slightly heavier to mount; date somewhat smudged with final digit altered; two small tears to upper edge of 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 Music Online.Maria Jeritza was one of the greatest sopranos of her generation, celebrated for her singing as well as for her acting, which included acrobatic elements. World famous composers wrote roles specifically with her in mind. For Richard Strauss, she created Ariadne (both versions, 1912 and 1916) and the Empress in Die Frau ohne Schatten (1919). Puccini wrote Turandot for her; she performed it, but she did not create the role. Other roles in which Jeritza excelled were Salome and Jen fa. She gave her debut at the Metropolitan Opera in New York in 1921 as Marietta in Korngold's Die tote Stadt and appeared on the Met's stage no fewer than 290 times in 20 roles.

        Rewolucja w Niemczech [Revolution in Germany]

      Ksiazka i Sztuka, Lodz—Warsaw 1919 - SZYK, Arthur. Rewolucja W. Niemczech [Revolution in Germany]. Text by Julian Tuwim, in Polish. Lodz—Warsaw: Ksiazka i Sztuka, 1919. 30 pp. Original wrappers with illustrations on both covers, bound with original burgundy cord. Top right corner of front cover shows evidence of prior folding, small adhesion mark to back wrapper, otherwise, Near Fine Condition.FIRST EDITION of Szyk's first published book of political satire, mocking the German nation in the aftermath of World War I.Arthur Szyk, together with the poet Julian Tuwim, presents an illustrated story of a mentally and spiritually skewed German nation lunging towards a nonsensical revolution. The Schlegel quote on the first page sets the tone— "Deutsch sein heisst charakter haben" [To be German means to have [special quality] character]. This is surely a cutting reference to the absurdity of German arrogance and characters such as Otto Gotlieb Schmock (pun is obvious), Schweinwanz (compound of "pig" and "bedbug"), Germainer ("uncouth") and Schwanzenhund ("tail of dog") continue the irreverent mockery. References to the German imperial superiority and status as a god-favored nation are presented with such tongue in cheek observations as "The German God is a sturdy castle". By the end of the book, even God has become a good German; for inspiring Schmock, He is presented a high rank as well as a black, white, and red ribbon reading "The royal Prussian God of the royal chamber".Szyk's armed forces services. Szyk joined the Russian Army and served in the Battle of Lodz in the autumn of 1914. When the city was captured by Germans, he returned to his hometown and, surprisingly enough, was allowed to live normally and work as an artist. After the war, he directed his vibrant patriotic passions towards serving in the newly created Polish state. During the Polish-Soviet War of 1919—20, he was made artistic director of the Department of Propaganda for the Polish Army and was later decorated for his contributions to the war effort. It was during this tenure that he drew the illustrations for Revolution in Germany.Julian Tuwim (1894—1953) was born in Lodz and is considered to have been one of the outstanding Polish poets of the first half of the 20th century. From a strong Jewish background, he was also politically well educated and possessed a vibrant Polish spirit. Like Szyk, he was enthralled with Poland's liberation and his books of poetry were filled with idealism and awe. Soon enough the harsh realities of life changed his outlook and his works became sharper, more angry and full of the dark comic sarcasm so evident in Revolution in Germany.Extreme rarity. The scarcity of this work cannot be underscored. At the age of 25, Szyk was only just becoming known, a fact—when coupled with the delicacy of the binding—that makes this item precious indeed. OCLC lists only two institutional copies: Hoover Institution and UC Berkeley. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      - GAZE,HAROLD. THE CHEWG-UM-BLEWG-UM. Melbourne, Aukland, Christchurch, Dunedin and Wellington and London: Whitcombe & Tombs Limited, [1919]. 4to (7 3/4 x 10"), [30]p., wraps, color plate on cover, string tie, faint corner stain on cover else near Fine. Illustrated by Gaze with 2 tipped- in color plates (plus color plate on cover repeated in-text), 1 tipped-in black and white plate and 8 pen and ink drawings in-text all featuring a koala, a fairy and a strange animal with the body of an emu and a camel's head. The story is told in verse. This is one of 3 titles in the Mite Merry Series. Gaze was born in New Zealand and except for a short stint at art school in London, he was largely self-taught. He eventually moved to Pasadena where he did some work for the Disney Studio. Although he didn't illustrate a large number of books his work is distinctive and wonderful. Holden in Golden Age p. 80 notes about the books in this series that "by Australian standards these titles were milestones in the history of children's book production. Their large quarto format and pleasing typography and layout were indicative of the publisher's understandable enthusiasm and belief that a major new talent had arrived." Marcie Muir notes that "After Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, the artist who dominated the fairy genre in Australian children's books was Harold Gaze " (Hist. Aust. Child. Bks. p77). See Muir Bib. 2699 This is a great copy of a rare book. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Photo Album]: Section 520 U.S. Army Ambulance Service Served in the World War. Saw Active Service in Italy, France, Belgium, Luxumberg[sic], Germany

      1919 - Oblong octavo. Cord-tied flexible cloth boards with "Photographs" stamped in blind on front board. A total of 292 gelatin silver images with 277 mounted between four and nine to a page, plus 15 loose prints, all measuring between 2.5" x 2" and 7" x 5". Most images are well-captioned in white album ink. First leaf is detached, modest wear, some fading to some images, very good or better. Newspaper clipping laid in about the experiences of Charles D. Hallman of Allentown, Pennsylvania in the Ambulance Service, that extensively quotes from his letters to his parents about his unit's journey by road in their ambulances across the Alps from Italy into France.The album commences with a group photo of the unit at Fort Dix in New Jersey, with the names of the each man in the unit noted. After a few images of training camp (in gas masks, in tents, being inoculated, etc.), a parade, a shipboard boxing match, the Rock of Gibraltar, and the coast of Spain, the location swiftly shifts to Camp "Lido" in Genova, Italy with many well-captioned images of the beach, the city, ambulances, and the camp. There are many photos of various members of the unit posing and well-identified, of ships and submarines, of the English convalescent camp, and several of their journey over the Alps. Once they reach France, mostly near the Meuse River and Argonne Forest, the scenes become more military: posing in shell holes, ambulances and planes destroyed by German fire, landscapes decimated by artillery, German bombs exploding, airplanes on patrol over the hospital, observations balloons, cemeteries, captured guns and pillboxes, barbed wire, and no-man's land.A splendid album concentrated almost exclusively on the experiences of a soldier in the Ambulance Service.

        Hymne an die Liebe" [3 Hymnen von Friedrich Hölderlin, Op.71, No. 1] - Autograph Manuscript Sketch Leaf, Signed on the composer's 60th Birthday

      - A large and extensively worked autograph manuscript sketchleaf for the first of the Drei Hymnen, Op. 71, accomplished in pencil on both sides of a trimmed sheet of printed musical manuscript paper, signed and dated in ink on the composer's sixtieth birthday "Richard Strauss / Garmisch, 11.6.24".  Approx. 56 measures, with vocal line and short score, as well as unidentified scoring.  Numbered "7" in the corner of the inscribed side, with additional (apparently mathematical) notations in two locations. 35.5 x 12.5 cm. Central vertical crease, else fine. The signed side of the sheet includes, from the 11th bar of the upper system, the text "Von den Wettern überschattet Bebt entzückt der Mutter Brust" ["Overshadowed by the elements / The mother's breast trembles rapturously"] and corresponding musical ideas to the final published measures 178 - 198 of Hymne an die Liebe.  Though the preceding and following measures do not seem to closely track the published score, this is evidently an early sketch for the identified work and the remaining musical ideas on the both sides are presumed to be discarded material from the same. "The years 1919 and 1920 are blank in the catalogue of Strauss's works; in 1921 he composed only - some only! - the Drei Hymnen, Op. 71, to texts by Hölderlin with accompaniment for large orchestra, songs which anticipate the richness of the Vier letze Lieder of twenty-seven years later and constitute a major work, sadly underrated and neglected.  Part of the explanation is that he was composing the opera Intermezzo and that the Vienna Opera and travels abroad ate into his time. The first performance of Op. 71 was given in Berlin on 4 November by Barbara Kemp, with Gustav Brecher conducting." (Michael Kennedy, "Richard Strauss: Man, Musician, Enigma," p. 210)We gratefully acknowledge the assistance of Nigel Simeone in the identification of this manuscript.

      , 1919 1919. Original photograph album. Morocco & Cloth. Very Good. Album of half red morocco and textured cloth over heavy boards, paneled spine with gilt rules, marbled endpapers. Contains about 190 photographs, including a few real-photo cards, mounted on heavy card-stock leaves. Images range in size from about 2" x 3" to 11.5" x 8.25". The largest photographs are among the most interesting and evocative. Many are captioned by hand. The album also includes one 2" x 7" watercolored mountain scene, and a few illustrations cut from periodicals. Four news clips on the rear pastedown hint at the ownership of this album--all relate to the arrival in Elmbridge, Surrey of a new Vicar, the Rev. T.E. Pritchett, to replace the retiring Reverend Coombs. There is a suggestion in a photo labeled "my rickshaw" (in Simla, showing a lady's parasol descending a hilly road) that perhaps the compiler is Rev. Pritchett's wife or a relative? A news photo of Mrs. J.H. Betts of Compton House, Kinver (England) shows her and a jockey, and the caption states that her horse won two first prizes in the hunters riding classes the Royal Show. Overall album size is 11" x 15" The photographs are presented in no particular order. Dates include: 1896 (a photo at "Tycanol Common campground in Wales, with 3 women and two men outdoors posed in front of a gypsy style caravan); 1900 (a couple in front of a house labeled "Beech Grove, Easter"); 1908 (3 women and a child in Peterbrook); 1910, crowds at Simla celebrating the "Coronation of King George" [V]; and 1919, three women and a man posed in and around a motorcar at "Dorset." ~~ The photographs of India (and a few taken in Nepal and Ceylon) are the most striking in the album. They take in many locales, including: Panchgani (the 1905 "Girls High School" class, the Chaplain's bungalow, church, etc.); Muttra (large temple, Hardinge Gate, "bathing ghat", "bazaar", etc.); Benares (including the riverside with boats and bathers, Cow Temple, and "The Morning Sacrifice"-a striking photo of a man pulling the back legs of a goat tied to a post in a courtyard); Agra (Fort, Tomb of Akbar, Pearl Mosque, Tomb of Lady of the Taj, Hall of Justice at the Fort, etc.); Bombay (Satara-a shot of a group of teen schoolboys with hockey sticks accompanied by a few Indian men and a few European men); Delhi (8 scenes, including a huge crowd labeled "The Jumma Musjid"); Simla ("my rickshaw…"-a rear view going down a winding road with three Indians and the back of a parasol, a large street scene of European women and men, the Post Office, the Narkanda School-a view of Indian boys and their teacher, a Dak bungalow, the Grand Hotel, the Church that is the scene of the celebration for the coronation of King George, etc.); and pictures taken in Mahableshwar, Mathiana, Goratpur, Fatipur-Sigra, Gorakhpur, Hathwar, Siripur, and Kalunpong. The Nepal photographs include one taken at Narkatiagung while the Ceylon images include one taken at Nusara Elayia and one at Mount Pedro. ~~ As a collection, the Indian photographs present an eclectic and evocative impression of life in the Raj. Besides many views of Indian scenes and architecture, there are highly dramatic photographs of the Indians themselves, including: a man performing the goat sacrifice mentioned above; a nearly naked man with a long beard and long locks of hair, a circle painted on his forehead, carrying a vessel; a "bhestie" carrying his waterskin ala Gunga Din; a potter at work outdoors, squatting by his vessels as he crafts yet another; "hill women" posing together, and in action cutting grass; men with carts bringing "apples" to market; two men and a boy at the "Cow Temple"-with a cow; Indian schoolchildren and their teacher, &c. On the other hand, the photographs also show some European-style buildings, bungalows, clothing and pursuits of the British, including teaching at "native" schools, being carried (while holding a parasol) by native rickshaw bearers, at their schools, riding horses, etc. ~~ In addition to the photographs of the Subcontinent, this album includes some taken in England, Wales and Ireland (Dorset, Albrighton, Craigside, "Mary Knowle" house, Broadchalk, County Down, Llandudno, Newcastle, Kilheel, Mildmay, Great Tew, Berskwell, and Wareham). Also in this group are a large photograph of a revival meeting and several images of nurses, posing together, or with clinic patients, or (in two large photos) a nurse alone on a lawn posing with a kitten and a dog. There are also some portraits and group portraits. Finally, we see two photos taken in Greece and several taken in Switzerland (Gstaad, on way to Chamry, etc., a couple of them featuring people frolicking on the ice).
