Seinem eigentlichen Interesse nach zeichnete, malte, komponierte und musizierte er aber daneben unbeirrt weiter. Als Architekt und Städteplaner war Strohmeyer nach dem Krieg maßgeblich am Wiederaufbau Hamburgs beteiligt. Dargestellt auf seinen hier angebotenen Lithographien sind Tanzszenen der aus Sankt Petersburg stammenden Ausdruckstänzerin, Choreographin und Tanzpädagogin Edith von Schrenck. Im Zuge der Oktoberrevolution 1917 verließ sie mit ihrer Familie Russland und startete von München aus, wo sie vermutlich auch Otto Heinrich Strohmeyer kennen lernte, ihre Tanzkarriere. Sie debütiert nach etwa einem Jahr intensiver eigener Tanzstudien in den Kammerspielen, um anschließend mit ihren Solotänzen auf Tournee durch ganz Europa zu gehen. Im Mai 1919 traf sie während eines Gastspiels in Frankfurt am Main auf den Schriftsteller Waldemar Bonsels, der für sie zur großen Liebe und zum Mentor wurde. - Die Mappe leicht gebrauchsspurig, die Tafeln sauber und frisch!

        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.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1919 - 1919 Original Hardback Wisden.

      Hi, Here we have a rare 1919 Original Hardback Wisden, in Very Good Condition. In my opinion the rarest 20th Century Wisden Hardback. The lettering (gilt) is bright and strong to both the front and the spine. The boards are excellent, the bok seems a bit warped but a heavy book on top should cure that , a bobbling line to the front cover to the right with a slight knock to the right of the front board. Inside the hinges are very good, very tightly bound. The yellow pastedowns are good, it looks like a bookplate has been removed from the first page, you need to look close but I would say it has been. HD Swan to the right yellow page. Internally very good, Minimal foxing. Nice photoplate. Couple of pages have dog ears. A lovely book, a few niggles but still fabulous. Rare,

Bound in dark blue cloth with pictorial stamping in gold gilt to both the front and back boards, as well as gilt decorations and lettering stamped to the spine. Grey illustrated endpapers. Original color pictorial box with coloured illustrated paste down, which is also used as the second illustration in "Young Bekie". Some bumping and wear to box, but in fairly good condition overall. Original glassine jacket intact, aside from a few closed tears to the front and a larger tear to back. All 16 tipped-in colour plates by Rackham on gray card stock with accompanying captions present and in fine condition; many black and white line drawings found throughout the text as well. All edges untrimmed. Inner contents clean and binding tight. Overall, a remarkably well preserved copy of this book with the original box and glassine jacket.Although there is no stated author on this book, some of the ballads have been attributed to the work of Francis James Child. Rackham's colour illustrations are especially stunning throughout and despite some of the disturbing and grotesque imagery, they all manage to be hauntingly beautiful as well. A rare book with the incredibly scarce pictorial box and glassine jacket, all in very good condition.
