        Moon and Sixpence

      , 1919 1919. Signed. MAUGHAM, W. Somerset. The Moon and Sixpence. London: William Heinemann, 1919. Octavo, original sage green cloth. $3500.First edition, third issue, of Maugham’s novel about the nature and cost of artistic genius, inscribed by the author, “For Paul ——, this novel founded on the life of Paul Gaugin. W. Somerset Maugham.”""Maugham had been pondering a novel based on the life of [French artist Paul] Gaugin since his first contact with the painter's work in Paris in 1905… His timing proved right. The post-Victorian figure of the artist as outcast was in vogue… For a post-World War I audience, wondering where society had led them, the time was ripe for the antisocial hero who goes his own way. It was also ripe for the exotic setting of Tahiti, far from European battlegrounds"" (Morgan, 239). Although critics generally praised The Moon and Sixpence, parallels between its protagonist, Charles Strickland, and Gaugin largely went unnoticed. One notable reviewer who took issue with the novel, Katherine Mansfeld, wrote, ""If Strickland is a real man and this book is a sort of guide to his works it has value; but if Mr. Maugham is merely pulling our critical leg it will not do… If you have to be so odious [as Strickland] before you can paint bananas—pray leave them unpainted"" (Curtis, 107). First edition, third issue, with two new advertisement leaves inserted at rear (see Stott A23); the first edition saw at least four issues in 1919. Without exceptionally rare original dust jacket. Stott A23. Maughamiana 18. Parker & Kermode, 81-2. Usual embrowning to text, printed on cheap, wartime paper: “white copies are very scarce” (Maughamiana). Tiny marginal chip to half title; light edge-wear including closed tear to front free endpaper, below but not touching Maugham’s inscription. Tissue restoration to inner paper hinges. Original cloth with spine ends lightly rubbed, lower front corner lightly bumped. A desirable inscribed copy in extremely good condition.

        la boîte à joujoux

      Paris: Durand & Fils, ca. 1919. Oblong folio: 9½ by 12½ inches. Original wraps decorated in color on the upper and lower wrap. Debussy's music is complemented by Hallé's sets and costumes for the 1919 ballet. Title page and 5 introductory pages hand colored; there are colored full page divisions for each of the 4 tableaux, as well as 13 full page colored illustrations reproducing the children's ballet of December, 1919. A copyright date on the typeset title page is 1913, but this is the date of the composition of the music. Debussy died in 1918, leaving only the piano score and a few pages of orchestration. These were complete by his student André Caplet for the debut in 1919 with Hallé's sets and costumes. Issued in both wraps and boards, this is the copy in publisher's wraps. Both issues are rare and fragile. The spine and one of the folds of the wraps have been strengthened on this copy, there is some light wear to the corners else this is a very good copy. The original glassine jacket has been replaced with new glassine. With the ownership signature of Glenn Bohannon, Napoli, 1945, on the front free endpaper. Protected in a custom made clamshell case. Very good.

      Leipzig Friedrich Dehne Verlag 1919 Grafikmappe \"Rhythmen\" mit 10 (von 10) jeweils handsignierte Lithographien, in grauer dekorierter Faltmappe (47,5 x 39 cm), Friedrich Dehne Verlag, Leipzig 1919. Mappe beidseitig etwas fleckig, Blätter durchweg sauber und von guter Erhaltung.zum Werk Mit seinem zweiten Mappenwerk \"Rhythmen\" greift Ludwig von Hofmann erneut das bereits für die vierzehn Jahre zuvor erschienene Mappe \"Tänze\" maßgebliche Thema des bewegten Körpers auf, um es durch die inzwischen entwickelten künstlerischen Mittel zu vertiefen. Auf den zehn Blättern entfaltet Hofmann figurative Gefüge, die in ihren übergreifenden Strukturen den einzelnen Körper übersteigen, durch den sie zugleich getragen werden. Vor dem Hintergrund der Eurhythmie fungiert der Körper hier nicht als Mittel eines subjektiven Ausdruckstanzes, sondern tritt - dem namensgebenden Titel der Mappe entsprechend - als Medium einer übergeordneten, daseinsbestimmenden Rhythmik in Erscheinung, wodurch dem bewegten menschlichen Körper eine symbolische, auf den geheimnisvollen Sinn des Daseins bezogene Dimension verleihen wird. Daher ist der menschliche Körper bei Hofmann auch nicht - wie dies für den Expressionismus charakteristisch ist - dezentriert oder in Fragmente aufgelöst, sondern er bleibt - der Kunst Hans von Marées\' vergleichbar - intakt und wird aufgrund eines neuen metaphysischen Menschenverständnisses gerade in seiner Anthropomorphizität aktiviert. Dies macht den inmitten des Stromes der Moderne als Einzelgänger agierenden Hofmann zu einem klassischen Künstler. \"Das Expressive hat mich interessiert, nicht das Expressionistische. Ich fühle mich der Natur gegenüber demütig, will sie nicht vergewaltigen\". Ludwig von Hofmann Versand D: 5,50 EUR

        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...".

It was printed at the press of la Maison Keller. Ganay 404 4to (32 x 24 cm); 5-161 pp. including 24 plates (mostly plans and garden views) as well as numerous wood block vignettes and text decorations; with separate portfolio containing a suite of 52 leaves with all of the wood vignettes from the text.

        Alma Gluck signed portrait inscribed to Jascha [Heifetz] 1919

      , 1919 1919. Very good condition. Large lovely sepia photographic portrait of the famed Metropolitan Opera soprano Alma Gluck, inscribed to Jascha Heifetz, and signed: "To Jascha, a token of my sincere admiration and affectionate regard, Alma. Xmas 1919." In May 1925, Jascha Heifetz (1901 - 1987), the renowned violinist, became a naturalized U.S. citizen. A celebration party for the event was hosted by Alma Gluck and her husband Efrem Zimbalist. Heifetz was so well regarded by this time that his name was used as a synonym for perfection. He is considered to be an unmatched interpreter of Beethoven, Brahms and Mendelssohn. Alma Gluck (1884 - 1938) is pictured in the portrait from the waist up, wearing an elegant evening gown with a shawl loosely draped around her shoulders, and her left hand holding a pearl necklace with pendant. The portrait was taken while she was married to violinist Efrem Zimbalist. At the time of this portrait Gluck was winding down a hectic musical career: between 1911 and 1919, she had made 124 recordings and was a best selling musician. Many of her recordings were classical, but she was also sang American folk songs. Alma and her husband, while living in New York, had done much work for the war effort, touring, donating to the Red Cross, selling Liberty Bonds, and singing in army camps. The portrait is signed in pencil at lower right of image "Kazanjian/N.Y." Aram Kazanjian was an Armenian refugee from the Turkish massacres of 1905 who became a successful photographer first in Boston and later in New York, making portraits of Broadway stars and musicians such as Enrico Caruso at his studio on 57th Street. Kazanjian was a highly sought after portrait photographer. 8 1/2 x 10" with generous margin at the bottom, with the inscription and signature in black ink. A few traces of black paper adhered to verso, where removed from a personal album.
