        Aphrodite (Ancient Manners), Translated Into English From the French of Pierre Louÿs - Limited Edition of 26 Copies on Japan Vellum, Lettered from A to Z

      Privately Printed (Mitchell Starrett Buck). LEATHER BOUND. B00ZM136FS 1919 limited edition (26 copies) 'Privately Printed' by the translator, Mitchell S. Buck / Nicholas L. Brown (New York), 6 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches tall red full leather signed Stikeman & Co. bound, ornate gilt ruling to covers and lettering to spine, top page edges gilt, fore and bottom page edges untrimmed, green and red leather front and rear pastedowns ornately tooled in gilt (with Stikeman and Co. in gilt to the bottom of the rear leather pastedown), beige moire endpapers, printed on fine Japan vellum paper, 30 full-page engravings (10 hand-colored) with tissue guards, xx, 269 pp. Bumping to lower tip of front board and upper tip of rear board. Slight rubbing to covers, and moderate edgewear, with a couple of nicks to the fore edge of the front board and wear visible along the spine. A couple of unopened signatures (easily remedied with a playing card). Occasional very slight marginal foxing. Otherwise, a very good copy - clean, bright and unmarked - of this scarce limited edition issue, magnificently bound by the legendary Stikeman and Co. of New York. Identified on the limitations page as Copy I of 26 copies (A - Z) produced on Japan vellum (a fine, thick, glossy paper, made in imitation of vellum, generally, as here, a light tan color, produced in Japan from native fibers that are of relatively great length). The sensuous frontispiece and nine other full-page art nouveau engravings are in this limited edition presented in three versions - in black ink (as given in all other editions), in red ink and hand colored - for a total of 30 engravings, each with tissue guard. Note that this is a heavy and oversized book, so additional postage will be required for international or priority orders. Contact us for links to more than a dozen high-resolution images of this handsome volume, a rarity among early American erotica, especially in such a distinctive binding by the renowned New York firm of Stikeman and Co., founded by Henry Stikeman (d. 1932), and rising to American preeminence as ornate binders in the late nineteenth century. ~DD~ Aphrodite is the first book published by American poet, translator and classical scholar Mitchell S. Buck (1887 - 1959), a translation of the 1896 first novel of the French decadent Pierre Louys, Aphrodite: Moeurs Antiques. The best-selling work of French fiction of its day, Aphrodite is a voluptuous look at courtesan life in ancient Alexandria, telling the story of Chrysis, a courtesan, and the sculptor Demetrios. Buck's translation first appeared in 1913, as here 'privately printed,' probably at the translator's expense. According to Buck's introduction, in this 1919 issue errors were corrected, 'the entire translation carefully revised, and the illustrations added.' It most likely was arranged through former Philadelphia bookseller Nicholas L. Brown, who officially became a publisher in 1916, and thereafter issued most of Buck's output, moving to New York in 1918. Between 1916 and 1932, Brown published small editions of poetry, belles lettres and translations, sometimes without his imprint but stating that the title has been 'issued privately for subscribers' (in order to evade prosecution for dealing in obscene materials). Such classical erotica is very tame by modern standards, but in the teens and twenties such material was policed by self-appointed authorities such as John S. Sumner of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice. Sumner and his ilk had success in getting various literary works banned, such as Theodore Dreiser's The Genius (1915) and James Branch Cabell's Jurgen (1919). Pierre Louys (1870 - 1925) was a French poet and writer, most renowned for lesbian and classical themes in some of his writings. He is known as a writer who sought to 'express pagan sensuality with stylistic perfection.' Aphrodite, his first novel, is considered a mixture of both literary excess and refinement, and, numbering at 350,000 copies, was the best selling work by any living French author in his day. Many erotic artists have illustrated Louys's writings, but we have been unable to identify the artist here, who signed the work with a distinctive script 'L.' In his Foreword to Louys's 1932 Collected Works, Buck noted how the times had already changed: 'Unless we are professional reformers, we are no longer shocked, except at tragedy. ... we can, in the main, observe public semi-nudity without rioting. Even the sinister manifestations of sex are known to all who care to read about them. And our physical health and perfection now receive as much, if not more, attention than the ultimate destination of our soul. All of which is a rather encouraging development.' . Good. 1919. First Edition.

Green quarter morocco (Maroquin) with gilt lettering and ornaments on spine. Marbled paper covered boards. Excellent condition with only minor signs of external wear. The bindings a little rubbed but still a very unusual and magnificent binding - job. A very rare set ! Edith Anna Œnone Somerville (2 May 1858 ?- 8 October 1949) was an Irish novelist who habitually signed herself as "E. Œ. Somerville". She wrote in collaboration with her cousin "Martin Ross" (Violet Martin) under the pseudonym "Somerville and Ross". Together they published a series of fourteen stories and novels, the most popular of which were The Real Charlotte, and The Experiences of an Irish R. M., published in 1899. The eldest of eight children, Somerville was born on the island of Corfu, then part of the United States of the Ionian Islands, a British protectorate where her father was stationed. A year later, her father retired to Drishane, Castletownshend, County Cork, where Somerville grew up. She received her primary education at home, and then attended Alexandra College in Dublin. In 1884 she studied art in Paris, and then spent a term at the Westminster School of Art in Dean's Yard, Westminster. At home, riding and painting were her absorbing interests. In January 1886 she met her cousin Violet Martin, and their literary partnership began the following year. Their first book, An Irish Cousin, appeared in 1889. In 1898 Edith Somerville went to paint at the Etaples art colony, accompanied by Violet. There they profited from their stay by conceiving together the stories later gathered in Some Experiences of an Irish R. M., completed the following year. By the time Violet died in 1915, they had published fourteen books together. Her cousin's death stunned Edith, who continued to write as "Somerville and Ross", claiming that they kept in contact through spiritualist séances. Somerville was a devoted sportswoman who in 1903 had become master of the West Carbery Foxhounds. She was also active in the suffragist movement, corresponding with Dame Ethel Smyth. She was in London still recovering from the shock of Violet's death when the Easter Rising of 1916 broke out. On 9 May she wrote a letter to the Times, blaming the British government for the state of affairs in Ireland. After that she tended towards Nationalism, and as an adept musician at parties she specialized in Irish tunes and Nationalist songs. She had exhibitions of her pictures in Dublin and in London between 1920 and 1938 and was active as an illustrator of children's picture books and sporting picture books. In 1936 her brother Henry Boyle Townsend Somerville, a retired Vice-Admiral in the Royal Navy, was killed by the I.R.A. at the family home of Castletownshend. She finished his book "Will Mariner" after his death. She died at Castletownshend in October 1949, aged 91. (Wikipedia)

        I Jaillit Une Larme" [Yiddish title] ("Noteif Notfoh") pour chant et piano. Op. 23, No 3. [No. 47] [FROM THE PERSONAL COLLECTION OF CANTOR T. VAINSTEIN]

      Obshchestvo Evreiskoi Muzyki - Société de la Musique Hébraïque, Moscow 1919 - Folio. 6pp. Original wrappers splendidly illustrated by Russian Avant Garde artist El Lissitzky, who helped develop suprematism with his mentor, Kazimir Malevich, and designed numerous exhibition displays and propaganda works for the Soviet Union. His work greatly influenced the Bauhaus and constructivist movements, and he experimented with production techniques and stylistic devices that would go on to dominate 20th-century graphic design. Complete musical score of "I Jaillit Une Larme" ("Noteif Notfoh"), a music composed and arranged for voice and piano by Russian Jewish composer Aleksandr Abramovich Kre n* (1883-1951). Sporadic and minor foxing, creasing and tiny closed tears along edges of wrappers. Previous owner's stamp (Cantor T. Vainstein) at upper margin of front cover. Upper margin of page 2, partly taped. Minor and sporadic foxing throughout. Text in Yiddish, Russian, French, and transliterated Yiddish. Wrappers and interior in overall good+ condition. * Krein's pioneering spirit had led him to incorporate the intonations and styles of both sacred and secular Jewish music into a relatively advanced idiom that was as influended by French impressionism as it was by the music of his friend Alexander Scriabin. Krein's own Jewish heritage was a constant source of inspiration; there are a number of instrumental works whose titles bear quite obvious witness to this, such as the "Caprice Hebraique," Op. 24, and the "Jewish Sketches" for clarinet and string quartet. In 1921, he composed "Kaddish" for tenor soloist, choir, and orchestra. From the mid-'20s on, he also wrote music for plays given by Moscow's Jewish Drama Theater. There is also a large amount of music that is either purely classical in design or Soviet in nature. In the latter category are works like the revolutionary opera Zagmuk (1930), the Threnody in Memory of Lenin (1925), and the somewhat amusingly titled U.S.S.R., Shock Brigade of the World Proletariat (1925).

        Leon Trotsky appoints Alexander Kerensky's former military aide and brother-in-law to an important military post in Moscow at the height of the Russian Civil War

      Moscow, September 26, 1919. 8.75" x 12.5". "Typed Document Signed, ""L Trotsky"", in blue grease pencil, as People's Commissar of Military and Naval Affairs of the Soviet Union, 1 page, 8.75"" x 12.5"", Moscow, September 26, 1919, in Russian, ordering the appointment of V. L. Baranovskiy as Chief of Staff to the commander of Red Army forces in Moscow. Additionally signed in pencil by Sergey Kamenev (1881-1936) as Commander-in-Chief of the Red Army. Minor losses at reinforced left margin not affecting text, light creases, else very good condition. Accompanied by a complete translation. The document reads (translated) in most part: ""Deputy Chief of the General Staff's Central Office of General Military Training V.L. BARANOVSKIY is hereby appointed Chief of Staff of the Commander of Troops of the Moscow Sector, in line with which he shall keep the position he currently holds."" A superb document from the apex of Trotsky's short career as founder and leader of the Red Army. Signed in the midst of the Russian Civil War, at a critical juncture when anti-Soviet forces were approaching both Moscow and Petrograd. Here Trotsky appoints Colonel V. L. Baranovskiy as Chief of Staff to the Chief of the military district of Moscow. Although Trotsky took enormous pains to enforce political loyalty, he was not above appointing officers who might have questionable credentials. Colonel Baranovskiy was both a key aid to Alexander Kerensky, whose short-lived provisional government had been overthrown by the Bolsheviks in October 1917, and the deposed leader's brother-in-law (Brian D. Taylor, Politics and the Russian Army, 2003, p. 104)."

        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 "Clarte" 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; hinged at upper edge with archival tape.. 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 "Clarte" movement in 1919 together with Romain Rolland.

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1919. First Edition. First-hand narrative of a gilded-age prostitute. The author fell into the Life in the 1890s and went on to ply her trade in the mining camps of Butte, Montana and later as a madame in San Fracisco's Tenderloin district. A contemporary clipping (dated December, 1919) tipped on to the front endpaper identifies the author as one "Dolly Ogden," and notes that the book had been recently suppressed by New York's Society for the Suppression of Vice. NOTE: Over the years (as of 2012) we have handled five copies of the first edition of this work. In three copies, the introduction by Judge Ben B. Lindsey (juvenile court judge of Denver) had been neatly excised; in two (and as in the present example) the introduction was intact. Though we have yet to conduct a census of institutional copies, we now feel fairly confident in surmising that this excision represents a point of issue - our theory being that portions of Lindsey's introduction (perhaps the part where he suggests that the book would make good reading for "girls having reached a reasonable maturity...[to learn] what evil is") were thought by the publisher to be injudicious, especially after the Comstock Committee's characterization of the book as "obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, indecent, and disgusting;" and that, rather than face prosecution for advocating the sale of smut to children, the publishers instead decided to remove the offending passage. An extremely uncommon work, especially in dustwrapper. First issue (see note below). Octavo. Linen-backed boards, dustjacket; 329pp. Contemporary ownership signature ("J.J. Stephens") to front endpaper; newspaper article tipped on to fixed endpaper. Spine gilt slightly oxidized; faint foxing to linen spine and text block edges; binding slightly pulled but still a firm, about VG copy in the extremely uncommon printed dustwrapper, rubbed, worn, and with a few chips along extremities; just Very Good.

        Les Jardins Precieux

      , 1919 1919. CHARMAISON, Raymond. Les Jardins Précieux. Preface by Henri de Régnier. [vi], [8] pp. Illustrated with 8 full-page colour pochoir plates by Charmaison, plus coloured cover illustration and one black and white title illustration. Folio, 490 x 335 mm, bound in original publisher's printed paper folding chemise, preserved in new cloth folding box. Paris: Chez Meynial, 5 November 1919. |~||~||~||~| First Edition. One of 8 copies accompanied by an original watercolour, this "La Treille Rose." A colourful example of Deco luxuriousness, which only pochoir printing under the guidance of Jean Saudé could achieve. One of the premier books of Art Deco illustration. These imaginary "Precious Gardens" are a testament to the power of the printed book as a vehicle for transporting the viewer/reader into the garden and a world of dreams. As Henri Régnier observes in the book's gold-printed preface: "Il contient quelques feuilles avec des lignes et des couleurs, à peine les aurez vous considerées que vous serez transporté dans un pays de lumière et de soleil..." The exquisite coloured plates offer garden views centered on a special garden feature. For example, the cover illustrates an idyllic forest stream; plate 1, "La Salle Verte" shows a Roman garden with pool, bright flowers, and marble columns; plate 2, "Les Flo" captures a yew-covered walk along the seashore; plate 3, "La Jarre" a terracotta pot is the focus of a brightly-flowered Mediterranean garden; plate 4, "L'Allée Rouge" evokes an Oriental garden with iris, red walkway, Japanese bridge and exotic trees; plate 5, "L'Atrium" an interior garden with fountain, potted trees and lounging cushions; plate 6, "Le Berceau" a lush covered berceau with tropical fruit; plate 7, "La Charmille" a verdant gateway into a hortus inclusis; and plate 8, "La Creille Rose" a night-time view of wisteria and roses on a trellis under the stars etc. -- each one rendered in the richest colours of the pochoir technique. Pierre Corrard, novelist and poet, established his publishing house in 1912 and began working with such noted illustrators of the day as Georges Barbier, Charles Martin and A.E. Marty. After his death his wife, Nicole Corrard, resumed his publishing efforts under the name "Collection Pierre Corrard." The luxurious pochoir renderings of fashion designs issued by Corrard conveyed the artistry of French haute couture during this period; the same is true of his stunning plates for Les Jardins Précieux, which provided a fresh expression of the new artistic visions of the "jardin d'artiste." Lacking ribbon tie, else, a very fine copy.

Besides the many fine examples of famous prints, there are many which have never previously come under my observation -- a fact which in a measure attests to their rarity."
