Die Originalvorlage des Buchs stammte aus dem Besitz von Heinrich Tränker ("Br. Recnartus" 1880-1956), der bekannt ist für seine "Pansophie". Neben den hier veröffentlichten Teilen gab es weitere, die aber nur als Handschriften kursierten. Tränker plante mit O.W. Barth, diese auch zu veröffentlichen, was aber an finanziellen Belangen scheiterte (Lechler S.193f). - Seltenes, für Schüler konzipiertes Werk über das Wesen des Geheimordens der Rosenkreuzer, mit Abbildung u. Erläuterung der Geheimsymbole. Die beiden nur durch ihre Initialen genannten Autoren waren möglicherweise Angehörige des Rosenkreuzer-Ordens in der für ihre liberale Pressezensur bekannten Stadt Altona. Lt. Frick "eine der wichtigsten Veröffentlichungen der G.[old] u.

(Die Erleuchteten, S.361ff.). Laut Tränker wurden die Tafeln allerdings von den Gold- u. Rosenkreuzern absichtlich in falscher Reihenfolge veröffentlicht, um das Wissen nur den wahren Eingeweihten zugänglich zu machen. Tränker behauptete, die wahre Reihenfolge zu kennen (vgl. Lechler). - Etwas bestossen u. berieben, sonst ein gutes Expl.

      The First UK printing Privately printed for the Author by J.B. Peace at the University Press, Cambridge, June 1919. Limited to 200 copies. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Text is clean and unmarked except for a small patch of light brown offsetting at poem 17, that appears to be from a newspaper clipping or bookmark. Laid in a photogravure of Sassoon on the first blank page. Covers have only light soiling and the paper title label is intact and remains bright. The bookplate of W.A. Harding - Madingley, is on the front paste down endpaper. Harding (1870-1942) inherited Madingley Hall from his father in 1924, and the property was eventually sold to Cambridge University in 1948. Siegfried Sassoon (1886-1967) is best remembered for his angry and compassionate poems of the First World War, which brought him public and critical acclaim. Avoiding the sentimentality and patriotism of many other war poets, Sassoon wrote of the horror and brutality of trench warfare and contemptuously satirized generals, politicians, and churchmen for their incompetence and blind support of the war. Much of his earlier work (1906-15) was privately printed and availability remains limited. This work predates the 1920 U.S edition. A scarce title.

        Kew Gardens.

      Richmond: Hogarth Press, , 1919. Octavo. Original Omega Workshop paper wrappers hand-coloured in blue, dark red and green, paper label to front cover. Housed in a custom quarter orange morocco and cloth slipcase and matching chemise. Woodcut frontispiece and tailpiece by Vanessa Bell. A beautiful copy, with just a little rubbing to spine. First edition, one of around 170 copies, with the cancel slip "L. and V. Woolf" over the imprint (as always), and the woodcut on the final page in the second state (printed on a separate piece of paper and pasted onto the page). Kew Gardens was the Woolf's first great success and the first book that Virginia's sister Vanessa illustrated. On June 9, 1919 Virginia recorded in her diary that "Nessa & I quarrelled as nearly as we ever do quarrel now over the get up of Kew Gardens, both type and woodcuts; & she firmly refused to illustrate any more stories of mine under those conditions, & went so far as to doubt the value of the Hogarth Press altogether. An ordinary printer would do better in her opinion. This both stung and chilled me. Not that she was bitter or extreme; its her reason and control that give her blame its severity". Events proved Bell to some extent correct; a glowing review in the Times Literary Supplement on May 29, 1919 led to a flood of orders that the Woolfs could not fulfill on their own, and the second edition was handed over to Richard Madley. But the lasting result was a triumph for both Bell and Virginia, as the review described the book as a work of art in whole, making special mention of Bell's woodcut. "But here is 'Kew gardens' – a work of art, made, 'created' as we say, finished, four-square; a thing of original and therefore strange beauty, with it's own 'atmosphere,', it's own vital forceÂ… the more one gloats over 'Kew Gardens' the more beauty shines out of itÂ… and the more one likes Mrs. Bell's 'Kew Gardens' woodcuts" (Woolmer p. xxiv).

        The Arrow of Gold.

      T. Fisher Unwin, London 1919 - First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper to his editor, "Signed with love for F + N Doubleday by Joseph Conrad." The recipient was his American publisher, Frank Doubleday and his wife Neltje De Graff, who published the American edition of The Arrow of Gold. Bookplate of Nelson Doubleday to pastedown. In very good condition, with the spine darkened and with some small replacement to the tips of the cloth. Housed in a slipcase. An outstanding association. One of the greatest English writers of the 19th century was a Polish-born man who couldn't even speak English fluently until he had entered adulthood. Nevertheless, Joseph Conrad went on to have a well-regarded literary career that bridged Romanticism and Modernism while also covering the zenith and twilight of the British empire. Conrad used his experience within the British empire to write novels and stories that often used the sea and navy as a setting, juxtaposing the individual human spirit with the collective duty and honor of the British navy. And though it was a second-language, Conrad mastered English prose. The Arrow of Gold by Joseph Conrad was published in 1919. It was originally titled "The Laugh" and published serially in Lloyd's Magazine from December 1918 to February 1920. The story is set in Marseille in the 1870s during the Third Carlist War. The characters of the novel are supporters of the Spanish Pretender Carlos, Duke of Madrid. Curiously, the novel features a person referred to as "Lord X", whose activities as arms smuggler resemble those of the Carlist politician Tirso de Olazabal y Lardizabal, Count of Arbelaiz.

        Les Actualités de L'Elègance

      N.p.: N.p., circa 1919-1924. Tipped-in photographs uniformly near fine; first album (by date) near fine in gold-embossed leather boards with cloth spine (minor loss to gilt on the front of album amd evidence of removed book plate to interior); second volume near fine in gold-embossed half bound leather boards with bookplate, as well as evidence of removed bookplate on inside of front board. An exceptional survival.. Two unique photo albums with a total of 712 silver gelatin prints, 5 x 7 inches, either tipped-in or corner mounted, all documenting fashionably dressed women, photographed outdoors on the street, in the park, or at the races. As such, an early precedent for the "street style" genre of fashion photography. Pen notations within both albums date the photographs to August 1919, October 1921, and August 1924. At least one photograph is stamped by French photographer Paul Géniaux; others are known to have been taken by him. The albums are notable for both the quality and consistency of their images. In many of the pictures, the subject poses before an anonymous crowd in the background, slightly out of focus, creating the sense that each portrait is of an individual who "stands out from the crowd" through their personal style. In this disciplined and repeated format, Géniaux has created an encyclopedic survey of women's fashion that represents perhaps the first comprehensive document of street-style photography. Unlike the theatrical idealizations of fashion-plate illustration and studio photography, Géniaux set up his camera in public places and simply photographed fashionable women as they had decided to dress themselves for society outings; the consistency of the framing suggests an almost typological approach to photography. Shot over a span of five years between 1919-1924, the photographs also document a growing comfort and acceptance of cameras; as the 1920s advance, the women take on poses that are more relaxed, casual, yet increasingly self-aware of what the lens will capture. Altogether, a remarkable, early example of "street style" photography as well as a unique, humanistic portrait of how stylish European women actually dressed during the early 1920. Although Géniaux displays a distinct photographic sensibility, his documentarian portraits fit into a similar gestalt as intra-war contemporaries such as August Sander. An untapped trove by a little known photographic pioneer

        North of Boston The first illustrated, signed, and limited edition, illustrator's presentation copy, signed by both author and illustrator

      Henry Holt and Company, New York 1919 - This is a particularly compelling presentation copy of a striking limited edition of the author’s second published book. This copy not only retains the original dust jacket, but is also inscribed by the illustrator and signed by the author. Robert Frost signed his name in the blank lower right margin of his frontispiece portrait by the illustrator, James Chapin. Chapin himself inked a warm gift inscription in five lines on the front free endpaper recto: "To Max & Ruth who, | in sympathy watched | the growth of this | garment | James Chapin". Opening with the famous poems "The Pasture" and "Mending Wall," North of Boston bolstered Frost’s newly minted literary reputation and precipitated his return to the United States from England. In 1919, his American publisher issued this second and limited edition of 500 copies. The binding features a dark green linen spine over lighter green, paper-covered boards with a gilt-stamped spine and gilt front panel with title and author printed in black. The contents feature the frontispiece Frost portrait and fourteen illustrations by James Chapin and are printed on heavy, watermarked, laid, linen-rag paper with untrimmed fore and bottom edges. A dust jacket was issued on dark green laid paper with gilt print on spine as well as the front cover, within a gilt rule frame. The edition is lovely, but fragile, the jacket particularly brittle, the paper-covered boards easily scuffed and soiled. This copy is near fine in the original dust jacket. The binding is clean, tight, and square with minor bumps to the corners and light wear to the spine ends and corners. The contents are clean and bright with a crisp feel, with no spotting or previous ownership marks other than the illustrator’s inscription and author’s signature. The untrimmed fore and bottom edges are surprisingly clean, the top edge only lightly dust soiled. The dust jacket is noteworthy for having survived and admirably protected the binding. We note chip losses to the top and bottom edges, to a maximum .75 inch depth at the spine head and .25 inch at the spine heel, as well as a horizontal split to the lower spine three inches from the heel and a vertical split along the front hinge. The dust jacket is protected beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. The volume is protected within a full, dark green morocco clamshell case with raised and gilt-ruled spine bands, tan morocco spine labels, gilt frame rule on the beveled edge covers, and dark green paper lining. American painter and illustrator James Ormsbee Chapin (1887-1975) was father of jazz musician Jim Chapin and grandfather of folk singer Harry Chapin. Like Frost, Chapin’s art was often rooted in a sense of place. In the mid-1920s he would move to a New Jersey farm where he created a series of paintings that were "realistic depictions of the rigors and rhythms of rural farm life" and whose "idiosyncratic, original style won high praise from critics and fellow artists". Iconic American poet Robert Lee Frost (1874-1963) was the quintessential poetic voice of New England. Ironically, Frost was born in San Francisco and it was a 1912 move to England with his wife and children – "the place to be poor and to write poems" – that catalyzed his recognition. Following the 1913 publication of A Boy’s Will, a convocation of critical recognition, introduction to other writers, and creative energy supported the 1914 English publication of Frost’s second book, North of Boston, which strengthened Frost’s reputation as a leading poet. By 1924 he had won the first of his eventual four Pulitzer Prizes for Poetry (1931, 1937, and 1943). Frost spent his final years as "the most highly esteemed American poet of the twentieth century" with a host of academic and civic honors to his credit. Two years before his death he became the first poet to read in the program of a U.S. Presidential inauguration (Kennedy, January 1961). Bibliographic reference: Crane A3.

      Whitcombe & Tombes, circa, 1919. Quarto, three tipped-in plates (two in full colour); a fine copy, stitch-sewn, with the pictorial wrappers tied on with the original blue ribbon. A fine copy of this book of poetry written and illustrated by Gaze, known for his 'distinct personal style' (Muir, A history of Australian childrens book illustration, p. 77). The Chewg-um-blewg-um is the third part of the "Mite Merry" series, known for its lavish colour plates.Born in New Zealand, Gaze is one of the most original Australasian illustrators. He studied in London for many years before publishing his first recorded book illustrations in 1917. At the end of the war he settled in Melbourne, and launched his career with The Wicked Winkapong (1918). A fine copy.

        Press photograph of Lynching Victim: "Will Brown the Lynchee in Omaha Race Riot" 1919

      Omaha, Nebraska: Omaha Daily News. September 30, 1919. Press photograph. Gelatin silver. Approximately 6" x 8". Pencil captioned as above, with stamp of staff photographer Mowrey on the verso. Slight crease at top of image, some editors marks on the image, very good or better. Brown is pictured, while still living, from the chest up, wearing overalls. During 1919 there were over 25 race riots in the Midwest and South in what was known as The Red Summer. In this case a white women, Agnes Loebeck and her boy friend accused 41-year-old Brown, a packing house worker, of assaulting Loebeck. A disorganized mob first tried to seize Brown, but were rebuffed by police, who took him to the Douglas County Courthouse. There a mob estimated between 5,000-15,000 assembled, making virtual prisoners of the police and city officials. Rioters began to fire on the Courthouse with guns looted from a local store, and one of the rioters and another bystander, were killed in gunshot exchanges with police. The mob then set fire to the Courthouse, and prevented firemen from extinguishing the blaze. The Mayor tried to reason with the mob but was assaulted and barely escaped lynching. Eventually the mob seized Brown, hung him from a lamp post outside of the Courthouse, riddled him with bullets, publicly burned his body, and dragged it behind an automobile through the streets. According to the website: http://www.nebraskastudies.org:"Nebraska-born actor Henry Fonda was 14 years old when the lynching happened. His father owned a printing plant across the street from the courthouse. He watched the riot from the second floor window of his father's shop. 'It was the most horrendous sight I'd ever seen . . . We locked the plant, went downstairs, and drove home in silence. My hands were wet and there were tears in my eyes. All I could think of was that young black man dangling at the end of a rope.'"This image is dated five days after the lynching. An artifact of a hideous episode. .

        Autograph

      , 1919 1919. Signed. EDWARD VIII. Autographs of the Prince of Wales Edward Windsor and his staff with accompanying letter. H.M.S. Renown, 1919. Two octavo sheets measuring 7-1/2 by 9-1/2 inches. Housed in a custom chemise and half morocco slipcase. $1750.Autograph of Edward VIII as Prince of Wales (signed “Edward P.”) as well as the autographs of each member of his personal staff, headed by Rear Admiral Lionel Halsey. Accompanied by a letter of presentation from Admiral Halsey. Both documents are on the Prince of WalesÂ’ personal stationery.These autographs were granted at the request of Dr. Emmett Page, whose letter and self-addressed stamped envelope are also included. Dr. Page, a member of the family of Ambassador Page, was evidently a collector of autographs of British royal, military and political figures. His letter reads, in part: “I am of the family of our late Ambassador to / your Government at Court of St. James. I am greatly / interested in your and your AssociatesÂ’ visit here / to us with your splendid Prince, H.R.H. Prince / Albert EdwardÂ… I want to get the Autographs of you and all / your AssociatesÂ… and to add it to those of your Premier, Lloyd George, Field Marshall Haig and / many others of this date and war time…” Admiral HalseyÂ’s letter, which presents the sheet of autographs, is dated November 27, 1919 from the H.M.S. Renown. It was in 1919 that Edward and his staff paid an official visit to the United States. The Prince was crowned King Edward VIII in 1936 at the age of 41, but abdicated months later to marry the twice-divorced American Wallis Simpson. From the noted collection of Julia Parker Wightman, with her bookplate.Fine condition.

        Life: The Seventeenth Grove Play of the Bohemian Club. SIGNED

      The Bohemian Club, San Francisco 1919 - San Francisco: The Bohemian Club, 1919. First edition. Wraps. Very Good. 8vo, printed stapled wrappers, pp. 60, [3]. Signed on the front flyleaf by Harry Leon Wilson, Domenico Brescia, Sergei Rachmaninoff, and Warren S. Palmer. Signed at the rear of the book by William H. Smith, Joseph S. Thompson, Xavier Martinez, James Hopper, Sam Hume, Antoine de Vally, George Sterling, Ulderico Marcelli, Edwin Henry Lemare, and two others we have been unable to identify. Wraps tanned and creased, two short tears at the spine, about very good. / In the summer of 1919 Sergei Rachmaninoff was invited by his friend Sir Henry Heyman to accompany him to the Bohemian Grove in Monte Rio, California, and to attend the closing festivities of the Bohemian Club's encampment there. The weekend was marked by a Friday night "entertainment," directed by William H. Smith, and on Saturday, the final night of the season, the more formal Grove Play, "Life," written by Harry Leon Wilson and with music by Domenico Brescia (featuring what might well be the first time a set of chromatic cowbells was used as a symphony instrument). To commemorate the event, the playscript and musical notes were printed privately for members, with a complete cast list for both the Grove Play and for the "Cremation of Care," the pageant that had opened the season several weeks earlier. (The "Cremation of Care" would ultimately become standardized, but in 1919 it was written by Charles Caldwell Dobie and featured music by Edwin H. Lemare). / The signatories include novelist and playwright Wilson (he would go on to popularize the term "flapper" in his novel BUNKER BEAN), the author of the play; -- Brescia, the composer, best known in posterity for his chamber music compositions, who would return to the Grove with a second production in 1926; -- Rachmaninoff, distinguished guest; -- Palmer, President of the Bohemian Club and General Manager of the Northwest Pacific Railroad; -- Smith, long-time member and frequent director of Bohemian Grove productions; -- Thompson, president of the Pacific Electric Manufacturing Corporation, who would write the 24th Grove Play ("Wings"), produced in 1925; -- MartÃÂnez, a Mexican-born artist and bohemian who would be named to represent California in the Hall of Fame at the World's Fair of 1940; -- Hopper, a French-born writer, novelist, and college football coach (he led Nevada to its first-ever win over Stanford, in 1900), who was also a close friend of Jack London's, famously contributing his football jersey for use as a flag on the Snark for one notable voyage out of San Francisco Bay; -- Hume, a theater technician who had been the organizer of the first exhibition of stagecraft in the United States; -- de Vally, Belgian-born San Francisco voice teacher and recording artist, director of the San Francisco Grand Opera Company, and president of the SF Musicians' Club; -- Sterling, celebrated in Northern California as one of the greatest American poets (his poem "The Wine of Wizardry" has been called "the greatest poem ever written by an American author"), a significant figure in bohemian literary and artistic circles, and in the development of the artists' colony at Carmel (like Hopper, he was also friendly with Jack London; he was additionally mentored by Ambrose Bierce, and would himself later mentor Robinson Jeffers); -- Marcelli, Ecuadorean-born composer and conductor, founder of the Rico Marcelli Symphony Orchestra, who wrote six Grove Plays, the first in 1920, the last in 1961, and who, as a conductor, made his mark leading the orchestras in silent film houses for Tivoli and Grauman throughout the teens and 20s; -- and Lemare, British-born organist and composer (he composed the Friday night event), called "the most highly regarded and highly paid organist of his generation" as well as "one of the most important composers of the late Romantic English-American Organ School."

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

      , 1919 1919. This original Wisden hardback for 1919 is in almost fine condition. I find that the hard covers for the 1919 edition are very fractionally larger than those for 1917 and 1918 and for this reason the book is frequently found with slight bumping to the corners of the cover at the top and bottom of the spine. This has occurred here to a very limited degree and the covers and spine are in near fine condition and the gilt immaculate unrestored to the front board and spine. Internally the front and rear yellow pages are in fine condition and the hinges tight. The remaining contents are complete, bright, unmarked and in fine condition. A tremendous copy. We hope to list over the next few weeks a number of fine pre-war publisher s hardbacks including issues for the 1890 s and the First World War and several years from the 1860 s and 1870 s all in fine condition. Please keep a look out for them.

        Twenty Drawings

      , 1919 1919. First Edition . Signed. GIBRAN, Kahlil. Twenty Drawings. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1919. Folio, original white Japanese paper spine, gold Japanese paper boards, top edge gilt. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $9000.Signed limited first edition, number 53 of 100 copies signed by Gibran, beautifully illustrated with a color frontispiece and black-and-white drawings by Gibran.Best known for his poetry, Kahlil Gibran was a gifted artist, having studied with Rodin in Paris. This first volume of Gibran's artwork in English (and only his second book published in the United States) contains 20 of his early works, primarily of nudes. ""When Twenty Drawings was published by Alfred A. Knopf in 1919, it was reviewed as having drawings 'of graceful emotional exposition of form"" (The Nation, 1922). This title sold only a few hundred copies at the time of publication, and Gibran continued to toil in obscurity until the publication of The Prophet in 1923, also illustrated by Gibran, which became the third best-selling work of poetry of all time. Front inner paper hinge split, plates fine; a bit of toning and wear to binding as usual. An extremely good copy. Rare.

        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.
