        The Hill of Vision. A Forecast of the Great War and of Social Revolution with the Coming of the New Race. Gathered from Automatic Writings Obtained between 1909 and 1912, and also, in 1918, through the hand of John Alleyne, under the supervision of the author. Script by John Alleyne.

      Boston: Marshall Jones Company, 1919 - Octavo. Original grey boards, titles and decoration in green. With the dust jacket. Fine. First edition, first printing, an exceptionally fine copy in the jacket, of this collection of psychically produced pieces prophesying (from as early as 1909) World War I, obtained by the English architect, illustrator, archaeologist and "psychical researcher" Frederick Bligh Bond (1864-1945). He was a member of the Freemasons from 1889, the Theosophical Society from 1895, the Society for Psychical Research from 1902, the Societas Rosicruciana in Anglia from 1909, and the Ghost Club from 1925. He is perhaps most famous for conducting the first ever dig in the discipline of what might be termed psychic archaeology, at Glastonbury Abbey. Convinced that the dimensions of the ruined buildings at Glastonbury were based on gematria (Cabalistic occult geometry), Bond in 1908 obtained directorship of excavations there. Using retired navy Captain John Allan Bartlett (the "John Alleyene" of this work) as his medium, Bond claimed to have contacted through automatic writing dead monks and the builder of the Edgar Chapel at Glastonbury, who advised him where to excavate. The excavations did rediscover the nature and dimensions of a number of buildings on the site, but when in 1919 he published The Gates of Remembrance, which revealed that he had employed psychial methods in his excavation, relations quickly deteriorated with his episcopal employers (who strongly disapproved of spiritualism), and he was eventually relieved of his directorship in 1921. The "ancestral voices, prophesying war" (to co-opt Kubla Khan) revealed in The Hill of Vision were obtained during the period of Bond and Captain Bartlett's Glastonbury excavations.

        [Portfolio]: Anita Berber: acht Originallithographieen. [Eight Lithographs of Anita Berber, Weimar's "Priestess of Depravity"]

      Berlin: Gurlitt Presse. 1919. Elephant folio. Set of eight 20" x 25" lithographs housed in a portfolio decorated paper over boards in quarter vellum gilt. Each lithograph is laid into a thick card matte, some of which show signs of foxing or light stains. The outer portfolio has splits along some folds, with wear and some staining, and the title sheet is edgeworn and foxed. Overall very good, the lithographs are near fine or better.The lithographs depict Anita Berber in various erotic poses taken from her theatrical personas, with hand-tinting added to several of the images. Of a total of 80 sets, this is number XIII [13] of only 40 sets Signed by Berend and highlighted in watercolor by her on four of the lithographs. Most of the sets are alleged to have been destroyed after the work was banned; only one other set with hand-tinting is known to survive.Berend was the first female artist to be inducted into the Berlin Session movement. Her specialty at this time was in creating prints of actors and dancers. According to The Seven Addictions and Five Professions of Anita Berber, Weimar Berlin's "Priestess of Depravity" by Mel Gordon:"Berend sketched eight canvases of the decadent dance personality. Each picture captured Anita in a new and more provocative pose. There was the terrified child in a short hoop-skirt which fell just below her naval, directing the viewer's eye straight to the startled figure's exposed vagina and lower torso; the smiling adolescent, bagging her nightgown from top to bottom, to display her boyish breasts as well as her pubic hair and a single silk stocking; the confident fashion-plate sprawled across a chair; the inviting whore, sensationally naked except for an open black overcoat, rolled up stockings and high heeled pumps; the saucy revue-girl at her makeup table, tonguing a phallic-looking oyster; a hard-faced dancer, in Parisian attire, expertly pleasuring herself with her right leg thrown over the arm of a chair; a beckoning bride, wearing only dark hosiery, in a curtained chamber room; and a naked openmouthed showgirl, seated on her fur wraps.""The Gurlitt Gallery Press privately printed 80 luxurious sets of the 'Anita Berber Portfolio' in the summer of 1919. Berend hand-printed and signed 40 of the oversize lithographic parcels and assumed that because of their fantastic cost and tiny print run, the series would probably elude Berlin's hard-pressed censoring boards. She was wrong. The entire Portfolio was labeled pornographic and quickly suppressed. Ten years later, the drawings reappeared in Viennese erotic encyclopedias and moral histories of the period. They would be among the most enduring images of Anita Berber between the time of her death and the beginning of Nazi rule."Anita Berber, beautiful, androgynous, and bi-sexual, was described by some as "Europe's first postmodern woman." She acted in Expressionist films directed by Richard Oswald and co-starring Conrad Veidt. Along with Sebastian Droste she caused a sensation with their series "The Dances of Depravity, Horror, and Ecstasy." She ruled the cabaret and casinos of Berlin during the period of the Weimer Republic, inspiring the careers of Marlene Dietrich and Leni Riefenstahl, and performing exotic dances "radiantly naked except for an elegant sable wrap, a pet monkey hanging from her neck, and a silver brooch packed with cocaine." She died tragically (if not surprisingly) in 1928 at the age of 29, a few months after collapsing on the cabaret floor of a Beirut club while performing abroad. In 1991 Otto Dix's portrait of her appeared as a German postage stamp.A collection of rare and superb images of the devotedly decadent Berber. With a copy of The Seven Addictions and Five Professions of Anita Berber, Weimar Berlin's "Priestess of Depravity" by Mel Gordon (reproducing the illustrations from this set). OCLC seems to locate two locations for the portfolio (National Library of Israel and National Art Library, of the Victoria and Albert Museum). .

        Moon and Sixpence

      1919 - 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Black Star Line, Inc., Unredeemed Stock Certificate Dated October 18, 1920

      New York: J. Meyers Inc, [1919]. Marcus Garvey founded the Black Star Line in 1919 as a part of his Back-to-Africa movement, selling stock at Universal Negro Improvement Association conferences. The purpose of the Line was to provide transportation of goods and people to Africa, though due to mismanagement, the poor condition of the ships purchased, and J. Edgar Hoover's infiltration of the company which led to a mail fraud charge (the ship depicted on a Black Star Line brochure was not technically owned by the company yet), the Line ceased to operate early in 1922. In 1920, however, the Line appeared to be a success with the very rapid purchase of the SS Yarmouth, a former coal boat active during World War I which the company renamed the SS Frederick Douglass and outfitted with an all-black crew and a black captain, sailing for the three years of the Line's existence between the United States and the West Indies. Thompson, acting as Vice President as of August, 1920, failed to procure the Orion, which had been chosen for the company's first transatlantic trip. In 1922 a jury indicted Garvey for mail fraud for which he was sentenced to five years in prison. By the time the Line ceased to run, no ships had made it as far as Africa. Pictorial stock certificate (22.75x27.75cm.) printed within green decorative border; recto fully accomplished in manuscript, verso text blank. Previous folds, a couple of short tears to extremities, the largest at bottom edge with minor subsequent creasing, else a Very Good example. Certificate no. 26668 providing two shares costing $5 apiece to a Mr. Newton D. Bacote, dated October 18, 1920, and signed by Jeremiah Certain (?) as Secretary-Treasurer and Orlando Montrose Thompson as President (though in reality Thompson was only Vice President).

        North of Boston

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1919. Second American Edition. Hardcover. This is the second American edition of the author?s second published book, a striking limited edition published in 1919, four years after the American first trade edition. 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, the American publisher issued this second and limited edition of 500 copies. The binding featured 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 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 heavy, 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 proved fragile, the jacket particularly brittle, the paper-covered boards of the binding easily scuffed and soiled. This copy is very good in a poor dust jacket. The binding remains tight and square with only minor wear, but nonetheless showing minor bumps to the lower front corners and light scuffing and soiling to the covers. The contents are clean and bright with a crisp feel, showing no spotting or previous ownership names. The page edges, including the untrimmed fore and bottom edges, are clean with only mild age-toning. The dust jacket is noteworthy for having survived and has done its job protecting the binding, but suffered in the process. There is a full front hinge split, as well a detached front flap with chipping along the flap fold. We note moderate chipping to extremities to a maximum depth of .75 inches, and the spine and front cover gilt is faded, legible on the front face, barely so on the spine. The dust jacket is now protected and stabilized beneath a removable, archival quality clear cover. Iconic American poet and four-time Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Lee Frost (1874-1963), the quintessential poetic voice of New England, was actually born in San Francisco and first published in England. When Frost was eleven, his newly widowed mother moved east to Salem, New Hampshire, to resume a teaching career. There Frost swiftly found his poetic voice, infused by New England scenes and sensibilities. Promising as both a student and writer, Frost nonetheless dropped out of both Dartmouth and Harvard, supporting himself and a young family by teaching and farming. Ironically, it was a 1912 move to England with his wife and children ? ?the place to be poor and to write poems? ? that finally catalyzed his recognition as a noteworthy American poet. The manuscript of A Boy?s Will was completed in England and accepted for publication by David Nutt on 1 April 1913. A convocation of critical recognition, introduction to other writers, and creative energy supported the English publication of Frost?s second book, North of Boston, in 1914, after which ?Frost?s reputation as a leading poet had been firmly established in England, and Henry Holt of New York had agreed to publish his books in America.? Accolades met his return to America at the end of 1914 and by 1917 a move to Amherst ?launched him on the twofold career he would lead for the rest of his life: teaching whatever ?subjects? he pleased at a congenial college? and ?barding around,? his term for ?saying? poems in a conversational performance.? (ANB) By 1924 he had won the first of his eventual four Pulitzer Prizes for poetry (1931, 1937, and 1943). Frost spent the final decade and a half of his life 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 A3.3

Corners very slightly bumped otherwise a near fine copy in a handsome binding."Several of the Ballads in this book are based on the great work of Francis James Child " (Note)"Few of Mr Rackham's work have been more consistently impressed with charm and beauty than his illustrations in colour to Some British Ballads. In them he pictures a succession of fascinating heroines habited in quaint and picturesque costumes, amid surroundings which, though belonging to no definite place or period, are always appropriate and congruous. His heroes are hardly less charming than his heroines, and the scenes in which they are represented constitute a series of fascinating and delightful pictures . one must feel grateful to Mr Rackham for giving us the prettiest picture book of the season" (The Connoisseur, Vol. LVI, 1920)."Never did old poems appear so gayly bedecked than Some British Ballads, which Arthur Rackham has gorgeously illustrated with 16 paintings It is hard to decide which the more attractive feature of this book—Mr. Rackham’s paintings or the ballads themselves" (New York Times)."No more effective inspiration for the gifted brush of Arthur Rackham could be found than these popular old ballads. Handsomely printed and bound, this magnificent work should appeal to all" (The Atlantic Monthly, Dec. 1920).

        South The Story of Shackleton's Last Expedition 1914 - 1917

      London: William Heinemann, 1919. First edition, first impression. Hardcover. Very good condition. Shackleton's classic voyage to the Antarctic, where ice crushed the ship "Endurance", and a small party of the crew traveled 800 miles in an open boat to South Georgia to secure rescue. Miraculously, every man survived. The account of Shackleton's amazing story of survival during the "Endurance" expedition. Being published on wartime paper, there is the usual uniform browning of the page edges found in the first impression but a much better than average copy. The silver gilt is very bright making this a desirable copy. Small 4to, (xxi) 376 pp, color frontispiece & 87 b&w printed photographic plates, folding map at the rear. Original blue cloth with silver gilt title and silhouette of "Endurance" trapped in the ice. Cloth very lightly rubbed at spine ends and edges, cover corners rubbed and two small light marks on front and slight toning of blue on lower foredge corner, overall a bright copy. See Spence 1107, Conrad p224, Taurus 105, Rosove 308.A1.

      London: Andrew Melrose, Ltd.. ND (1919). 1st edition. hb. Royal 8vo, pp. xxi, 183. All plates are present as is the folding map placed at the end of the book. . Davis (1884-1967) was an English-born Australian explorer, navigator and one of the most experienced Antarctic seamen of the heroic era. King and the Australian explorer Douglas Mawson, became friends during Shackleton's 1907-1909 expedition and Mawson later recruited Davis to be captain of the "Aurora" on the 1911-1914 Australian Antarctic Expedition. This volume contains Davis's account, with a history of the ship from its construction in 1876. Much of the expedition narrative consists of brief entries by date, different than Davis's log, later published as "Trial by Ice" in 1999 (see Rosove p. 97). Our offering is an exceedingly scarce copy of the first edition (Rosove 87.A1.b), not only because it is a variant binding (described by Rosove as "far scarcer than the primary one"), but because it carries with it the publisher's original dust jacket. It is bound in orange cloth with black stamped lettering and a stamped design of the "Aurora" to the front board. The spine lettering is in gilt. The front board is a bit bowed and the extremities of both boards show light wear. The cloth is remarkably clean, although the foredge of the text block shows some foxing. There is a former owner's unobtrusive name and date to the front free endpaper. The frontispiece tissue guard is present and quite intact, although the top inch of the gutter of the title page is torn. The plate facing page 108 is slightly split at the gutter. The dust jacket has been laminated. It is intact, but shows creasing, edge rubbing and some small loss to the spine ends. .

        Drakula: roman [Count Dracula: a novel], volumes I and II (complete).

      Prague: NakladatelstvÍ Emila Šolce 1919 - Octavo (18.5 × 13 cm). Two volumes bound together in quarter cloth with paper-covered boards; title printed to spine; 3-447, [1] pp. Original wrappers perished; title page mounted on separate leaf and restored to margins; lacking the half-title preceding the second volume and the last leaf of volume one (pp. 287-88) has been supplied in facsimile. A few smaller tape repairs and stains throughout; overall still a good copy of a scarce title generally encountered in poor condition. First Czech edition of Bram Stoker's Dracula, one of the earliest translations of the novel, preceding the French and Italian translations. Given the novel's affinity with the former Austro-Hungarian lands and Eastern Europe in general, it is an understandable choice. Judging from the scarcity of this edition, the novel was quite popular. The translation was originally published in two volumes, here bound as one, and featured an unattributed wrapper illustration showing Dracula as a gloomy old man. In his recent survey of early Dracula translations, Simone Berni notes that "the 1919 edition was quite similar to a present-day paperback: it was rather poor and printed on low-quality paper. No hardcover copies are known. The copies we have are extremely fragile and the paper is so deteriorated that they cannot even be leafed through" (57). We are unable to find further information about the translator, apart from the fact that he was involved with the Esperanto community and was apparently active as a translator into Esperanto. For comparison with other editions see Berni, Dracula by Bram Stoker: The Mystery of the Early Editions, 2014, as well as the Melton bibliography (accessible online), which does not cite the present edition. KVK and OCLC only show the copy at the Czech National Library. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Il reconnaît l'influence majeure de LE NOTRE. Il est connu pour sa collaboration avec son frère, le peintre et décorateur Paul Vera. Il renouvele la conception française dont il sentait le déclin depuis les années 1840, et introduit le style moderne qui a perpetué la tradition française. Il était un défenseur de jardin à la française, avec des dessins géométriques strictement basé sur des lignes et des carrés à la place des formes curvilignes de l'Art Nouveau. Dans la conception urbaine, il a souligné l'importance d'inclure les arbres comme des éléments architecturaux, qui, pensait-il améliorer la santé physique et mentale des résidents.

Sein eigentliches Interesse aber galt der bildenden Kunst, der er sich 1908 ganz zuwandte. Zu seinen bevorzugten Motiven gehörten Landschaften, Stadtansichten, Marktplätze und Volksfeste, die er meist in Aquarell- oder Deckfarben ausführte. Seit 1910 entwickelte L. eine Vorliebe für biblische und mythologische Themen, die er bevorzugt in Öl- oder Temperafarben großformatig umsetzte (Die Arche Noah, 1910). Reisen führten ihn 1911-14 u.a. nach Griechenland und in die Türkei sowie nach Tunis. Den Ersten Weltkrieg erlebte er als Offizier und Kriegsmaler in Galizien, Rumänien und Südrußland. Er trat auch mit graphischen Arbeiten hervor und wurde mehrfach zu Buchillustrationen herangezogen. Seit den zwanziger Jahren entwarf er auch Bühnenbilder und Kostüme.
