Literatur: Hofmaier 170 A (von C, dieses Exemplar!); Glaser 147; Gallwitz 141. Blatt 7 der 7-Blatt-Folge: Stadtnacht. Max Beckmann zählt sicher zu den bedeutendsten Künstlern des 20. Jahrhunderts. Basierend auf neuen Kunstauffassungen des 19. und beginnenden 20. Jahrhunderts, wie etwa dem Impressionismus und Expressionismus, sowie altmeisterlichen Kunsttraditionen entwickelte Beckmann einen ganz eigenen Stil, der bewußt als Gegenposition zum abstrakt-geometrischen Stil, etwa dem Kubismus oder Futurismus, verstanden werden wollte und die Figur in den Mittelpunkt seines Schaffens stellt. Nach einer Ausbildung an der Weimarer Kunstschule bei C.F. Smith (1859-1917) hielt Beckmann sich u.a. in Paris, Holland und Florenz auf und ließ sich 1904 in Berlin nieder. 1914 war er Mitbegründer der „Freien Sezession Berlin", 1919 der „Darmstädter Sezession". 1925-1932 lehrte er am Städelschen Kunstinstitut.

Harmon, Byron Hill
Banff, 1920. Very good.. Nineteen real photo postcards, each captioned in the negative. One with writing on the image, minor wear and soiling else. A few with notes on the verso. A wonderful collection of real photo postcards documenting the Stoney Nakoda Indians at Banff Indian Days, taken by noted photographer Byron Harmon. Harmon (1876-1942) started his career as a portrait photographer in Tacoma in the 1890s, subsequently working as an itinerant photographer across the Southwest and eastern seaboard. An asthmatic from a young age, he relished the clear air of the mountain climate, and on a trip in the Canadian Rockies learned there was no photography studio yet established in Banff. He returned in 1906 and set up shop, operating as a photographer and druggist from 1906 to 1925. Most of Harmon's extensive output is dedicated to mountain scenery and tourism photography. He was a charter member of the Alpine Club of Canada, serving as its official photographer, a role which provided him opportunities to capture some of his most important and striking images. The photos in the present grouping include handsome posed portraits of the local Stoney Nakoda people, as well as scenes of Indian camp life, all presumably taken at the Banff Indian Days celebrations. They are captioned in the negatives as follows: 503. Western Canadian Indian Family 506. Stoney Indian and Squaw 507. Indian Chief 511. Indian Children 512. Indian Camp 513. Stoney Indian 516.

Contains 195 gelatin silver black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 0.25" x 0.25" and 6" x 4" with captions. Fine with fine photographs A young woman's photo album from the 1920s with pictures of her family, place of work, hobbies, and travels with friends in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The album begins with the woman working a SeidenBach's Department store which was a women's specialty store in the 1920s through 1960s. Her coworkers are pictured with her with everyone's signature underneath. There are a couple pictures of people outside the stores exterior as well. Some of the photographs include the woman's family members living on a farm and having dinner parties but much of the album is of the woman traveling around with friends, affectionately labeled "The Gang." The group is pictured with their automobiles driving around to other places around Oklahoma and Kansas such as cities, parks, and lakes. There are portraits of each friend, sometimes cut into shapes or pleasantly posed in a scene with decorative clothing. Some of the cutouts are very small showing just the person's face and others are cut into diamonds and circles showing a full shot of the person. They are often grouped into couples, one of which shows two women close to each other with, "The Promise," captioned beneath them and another showing one of the women bending down on one knee and holding the other woman's hand. These photos possibly hint at a romantic relationship or a dee … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bonfils Robert, Houville Gérard d'
SARL ABRAXAS-LIBRIS, 1920. Condition: Like New. A PERFECT CONDITION. AN EXCEPTIONAL SOURCE. ONE COPY WITHOUT EQUIVALENT. ABSOLUTELY PERFECT CONDITION. AN EXCEPTIONAL ORIGIN. AN UNPRECEDENTED COPY. Magnificent copy of this shirt from the collection "Modes et Manners of Today", the publication of the best of the fashion of the beginning of the XXth century, by the artists having made it, at the height of their art. The project is led by Pierre Corrard, writer and editor of great talent. To accompany the artistic and clothing Révolution of the Roaring Twenties, he published, in 1912, a first shirt, with illustrations by Georges Lepape. In front of the reception given to this first publication, he decides, each year, to propose an identical shirt, with different authors and artists. In 1920, it was Robert Bonfils and Gérard d'Houville who supplied Pierre Corrard with the elements to make the annual shirt. This shirt looks like all the others in the series: under a strong cardboard box, the first flat of which is stamped with only titles and years, with, in its center, a color illustration, the boards take place in a set of four flaps made of the same paper as that illustrating the counterguard, and whose motif was drawn by the artist making the interior boards. The book, in sheets, begins with a title page with the cover illustration. Then come the pages offering the text, and, after the colophon, the illustrated plates. Particular care is taken in the production of these plates, from the engraving to the passage of the stencils. The provenance of our copy is exceptional: it co … [Click Below for Full Description]

CONRAD, Joseph
Methuen, 1920. Tenth edition. Original red cloth lettered in gilt to the spine. Author's presentation copy, inscribed on the front endpaper, "Catherine Willard from her friend Joseph Conrad 1st Jan 1921". A very good copy indeed with minor wear to the spine ends and some cracking to the front hinge. Catherine Willard (1898-1954) was a noted screen actress and leading lady. She met Conrad in about 1920 through her mother, Grace, who at the time was an interior designer and helping the Conrads furnish their new home, Oswalds, in Bishopsbourne, Kent. She was establishing herself as an actress and was about the same age as the Conrad's son, Borys. The latter suspected his parents of attempting to line her up as a future daughter in law. Conrad was writing his dramatic adaptation of The Secret Agent at the time and had Willard in mind for the heroine. He sent the finished manuscript of the play to her shortly before his death in 1924, and it is probable that he gave her this copy to familiarise herself with the novel, in the hope she would take the part, whilst he finished the play. The Secret Agent has long been regarded as one of Conrad's finest and most enduring novels and was a key influence on both Graham Greene and Eric Ambler. It is notably rare in a presentation state, even as a reprint. "The Secret Agent depicts the atmosphere of Edwardian London in a psychological thriller of the anarchist underworld. Conrad's wit and chivalrous magnanimity are at their airiest in this novel." (Connolly) [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

[Mexican Manuscript Cookbook]: Madrid, Lucila
[Puebla, Mexico, 1920. [56]pp. In Spanish. Printed wrappers notebook. Minor wear. Some gatherings sprung. Good condition. A wonderful collection of Mexican food recipes compiled by Lucila Madrid, a fledgling cook in Puebla, Mexico. Madrid uses a school notebook titled "La Tarjeta" and signs her name on the front cover. In the notebook, Madrid records ingredients and "preparacion" instructions for a plethora of Mexican dishes, starting with "Huevos a la Mexicana," "Ninos envueltos," and "Consome Renbi," and encompassing cabbage and cucumber salad, fruit salad, marmalades, desserts ("Gelatina de Leche," "Atole de fresas," and "Molletes de Santa Clara"), dishes now familiar to American palates ("Tamales de mole" and "Salsa general"), and more. Madrid even includes instructions for making a few different types of wine: "Vino de ciruela" (plum wine), "Vino de Piña" (pineapple wine), "Vino de Durazno" (peach wine), and "Vino de Capulin" (cocoon wine). In the last two entries in the volume, Madrid records the recipes for a cocktail (made of habanero, grenadine, cinzano, and lemon juice) and an herbal tea called "Te compuesto." Near the end, in addition to the recipes, Madrid has devoted four-and-a-half pages to writing out a list of "Principales terminos de cocina" in dictionary style. This tends to indicate that she may have been a culinary student, or at the very least a young cook learning her way around the kitchen. An interesting and informative collection of early-20th-century recipes from central Mexico.

Robert Browning (1812- 1889) was an English poet and playwright whose mastery of dramatic verse, and in particular the dramatic monologue, made him one of the foremost Victorian poets.

The speakers in his poems are often musicians or painters whose work functions as a metaphor for poetry.

"Au Royaume de la Perle was first published in Paris (by Payot) in 1919 without benefit of the Dulac illustrations which the author Mr. Rosenthal so eagerly sought. But when, in 1920, Dulac found time to produce 10 pictures, Mr. Rosenthal not only purchased the water colours, but had another publisher, Piazza of Paris, publish a 1,500-copy new edition of his Perle book with the Dulac illustrations. Also Dulac reveals in a reply to a Mr. Carroll of Massachusetts who hoped to buy one of the Pearl illustrations that Mr. Rosenthal also purchased the copyright to the 10 pictures. However Mr. Rosenthal did allow his book with Dulac pictures and in English translation to be published in England by The Nisbet Publishing House...The English edition, although praised by The Times Literary critic as Dulac 'at his best' was not a commercial success. In order to make use of the 775 sheets remaining from 1,550 printed for the English edition, arrangements were made in 1925 to market an edition through Brentano's, booksellers in New York...The Pearl pictures indeed display a ripening of a … [Click Below for Full Description]

FREEMAN, R. Austin
Arthur Pearson, London, 1920. First English edition (previously published in the U.S. as *The Uttermost Farthing*). Cheap paper browned, small spot on the front board, a very good or better copy. This copy Inscribed by Freeman: "P.M. Stone from R. Austin Freeman with cordial good wishes. 3rd April 1939." One of the author's scarcest titles, presumably so because of the execrable leftover wartime paper used in its manufacture. Very seldom found, and never signed or inscribed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
