        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.

        Cinderella. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham.

      London: William Heinemann, 1919. SIGNED LIMITED EDITION. Slim quarto, pp. 110. Elegantly bound in full green oasis morocco with gilt panelled spine, tooled raised bands, gilt borders with cornerpoints, and marbled end-papers. Top edge gilt, others deckled. Publisher's original pictorial endpapers, upper board, and spine bound into volume. Features one delightful mounted colour plate, generously illustrated throughout with stylish silhouette prints, and three-tone illustrations. A near-fine copy in a handsome recent binding. Cinderella is a classic tale embedded in the Western consciousness; she appears throughout European folk-tales as "Cinderella", "Cenerentola", "Cendrillon", and "Aschenputtel" in stories exploring themes of unjust oppression. In English-language folklore, "Cinderella" is the archetypal name of one whose attributes were unrecognized, or one who unexpectedly achieves recognition or success after a period of obscurity (or neglect). The story of Rhodopis - a Greek slave girl who marries the king of Egypt - is considered the earliest known variant of Cinderella story, and was published around 7 BC. Endless versions of this captivating fairytale are known and cherished throughout the world.

        Sindbad le Marin (Sinbad the Sailor) et d'Autres Contes des Mille et Une Nuits.

      Paris: H. Piazza, (1919). Quarto. 148pp., + (27)ff. plates. French edition. One of 1,500 copies. The twenty-seven color plates by Edmund Dulac are tipped-in with tissue guards. Floral and foliate borders in yellow surround the text and plates, referencing Eastern illuminated manuscripts. According to White, the "bright, enamel-like" colors of Persian miniatures influenced Dulac's color palette for this book, which includes bold tangerine and carmine red. Many of Dulac's illustrations also have a rich, Far-Eastern sensibility: the plates for the story of Aladdin evoke Chinese and Japanese brush paintings. This handsome edition contains four more plates than the English edition. Slightest chipping to spine ends, else a very fine copy in the original blue printed wrappers.

        [EL LISSITZKY] Der Milner, di Milnerin un di Milshtayner [i e The Miller, His Wife and Their Millstones]

      Kiev: Yidisher Folks Ferlag, 1919. 16 pp.: ill. 16x12 cm. Original wrappers designed by Lissitzky with integral illustration on each cover. Fine. First edition. Extremely rare. Yiddish children's book with 11 illustrations by Lissitzky. The Kultur-Liga in Warsaw reprinted this book in green and red in a slightly larger format in 1922. It is unusual to find a copy of any of these Yiddish books without the 1948 «withdrawn» stamps. Ben Zion Raskin (1880-1930), translator, author of children's books in Yiddish. Lissitzky first work with children's books happened in the first years after the revolution. At that time in various cities of the former Russian Empire there were many very interesting and uniquely designed children's books in Yiddish. The desire for renewal of Jewish culture was due to causes not only aesthetic, but also social. The people, who had lived quietly and closed in Russia for a long time got equal rights with others and felt the need to go «... from the darkness of the underground to the sunlight of the world culture», without losing their national identity. An important role in this process was supposed to play Kultur- Lige (League of Jewish Culture), founded in 1918 in Kiev. Lissitzky was one of the founders of that avant-garde formation. He also became one of the founders of the founders of the avant-garde Jewish book illustration. Apter-Gabriel. 92. WorldCat locates copies in Getty Research Institute and Yale University Library.

        Die [anderen unbekannten] Venezianischen Epigrammen.

      8vo., (210 ? 138 mm), pp. 57, [1]; printed in red and blue; uncut in the original publisher's boards.Limited edition (500 copies printed, this being no. 3), designed by Leopold Fuchs, after which the types were destroyed. This copy contains 53 original colour illustrations, (finished to varying degrees), some of them erotic, one below each epigram, by the Expressionist artist Erich Büttner, who has also removed the title-page (noting on the stub: 'Was einst der Herr von Goethe bewitzelt hat nun ein Maler ausgekritzelt', quasi 'What once Goethe poked fun at a painter has now scribbled out'), decorated the endpapers and painted over the covers. A pencil note, by Büttner, below the colophon reveals that this copy was made as a Christmas present for the bibliophile Emil Tuchmann in 1927. Büttner (1889-1936) was a member of the Berlin Secession, producing portraits of fellow artists George Grosz, Lovis Corinth, Arno Holz, and Heinrich Zille. He also designed book plates, notably Albert Einstein's in 1917. Rodenberg, Deutsche Pressen, p. 408 (the first of Banas & Dette's 'Hölderlin-Drucke', 1919-22).

Original red cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt ('Confidential - Advance Copy'); many parts of typed carbon-copied reports, several with signature of the Llewellyn at the end, others signed by other members of the mission, with one ink and wash plate of locomotives, three large folding maps in ink and watercolour, one large folding colour-printed lithographic map of the of mining activities in Yugoslavia, two statistical folding tables, photographic illustrations of agricultural machinery of three leaves, one plate of sections of sewage drains, 6 plates of river ports and depictions of the rail-river transport interface and a large folding plan of Split and surroundings; only light wear to binding, endpapers a bit browned, a few short marginal tears to folds of the maps, otherwise in very good condition. This unique, impressive tome was compiled after the First World War in order to assess the damage and explore the possibilities of the reconstruction and development of Serbia and its neighbouring countries, which were to form Yugoslavia. 'The Mission was sent in two contingents, of which the first had already returned, the object of the Mission being to investigate commercial conditions generally in Serbia and also reconstruction problems in engineering and public works, transportation, agriculture, timber, mining, town-planning, and sanitation. The official members of the Mission included no direct representative of any specific business interest. The first contingent of the Mission was, however, accompanied in an unofficial capacity by a representative of the Levant Company and a representative of the Associated British Manufacturers. The Mission was not intended to take the place of private initiative, but it is affording any facilities in its power to representatives in Serbia of British firms ... The Economic Mission to Serbia was sent out in two contingents. The first contingent consisted of (1) Mr. E. C. D. Rawlins, Commercial Secretary for Serbia and Greece; (2) Lieutenant-Colonel C. E. Jordan Bell, R.E., War Office; (3) Mr. F. A. Llewellyn, Office of Works; (4) Mr. W. Trask, nominated by the Federation of British Industries. This contingent was accompanied in an unofficial capacity by ... Mr. A. E. Tabor, of the Levant Company, and Captain T. G. Mapplebeck, of the Associated British Manufacturers. The second contingent consists of (1) Mr. F. A. Llewellyn, Office of Works; (2) Captain E. C. Foot, Forestry Corps of Canadian Army; (3) Mr. G. E. Farrar, Office of Works; (4) Mr. C. L. K. Foot, ex-Manager of Government Stock Farm at Alington; (5) Mr. F. H. Cerrito, Office of Works; and (6) Mr. G. W. Tully, Office of Works (Scottish Branch). Mr. Rawlins was in charge of the Mission attached to it. Mr. F. A. Llewellyn has since been in charge' (Sir H. Greenwood in Hansard, 15 July 1919 vol. 118 cc186-8). Not much else is recorded about that British mission, apart from the cornucopia of information presented here on the economics, infrastructure, ethnic mix, as well as spas, nutrition and food production, topography, navigability of rivers, the increased responsibility of women in the workplace and a British assessment of the psyche ('temperament') of the inhabitants. .
