Bohla, Alois
Passau: Bohla - Verlag Neue Motive, 1920. First edition. Loose leaf. vg to fine. Quarto Portfolio. (1) 20 plates. Original gray quarter-cloth portfolio with color illustrated paper-covered boards and black lettering on cover with decorative paper-covered back board. Printed introduction pasted to inside front cover. When Bohla began his second portfolio, Neue Motive, it was meant to become an inspiration for the viewer and entice him or her to be active and creative in this field. The backdrop for this work is stated in the introduction by the author: "The study of nature serves as foundation from the outset. Not to copy nature, as a trained eye sees it, was the intention, something different could be created only when considering the form of the presentation. The objective is to create studies in a beautiful rendition, the extraction of decorative forms while applying complete freedom, recording the essence while omitting all ornateness is the general guideline. Starting with the choice of motifs diligence has to be applied. Useful native plants and animals are plentiful in nature. You can find them. magnifiers and mirrors might disclose hidden allures/charms. Happy and fresh colors are to be used. Tasteful lines and motifs emphasize a certain timelessness." (Introduction). The designs in this collection are similar to his first publication "Neue Motive für flächendeckende Verzierung" - in part based on the same botanical patterns of nature - this work is more abstract and is broadened by the addition of modern animal motifs. The transition from Jugendstil to early Art … [Click Below for Full Description]

SEE ALL PICS. only 4,990 copies printed. SCARCE! Published four years after London's death (and two years after it was published in England). Like his two late books about dogs, this was hackwork necessary to raise cash, which he wrote in Hawaii during his final year. The last long novel of his life, HEARTS OF THREE, was a sorry business, a piece of romantic trash that bore no mark of Jack's style at all. It was the first time he had been asked to "novelize" a screenplay. In fact, HEARTS OF THREE was a serial adventure story of fifteen episodes, written by the screenwriter of "The Perils of Pauline" and "The Exploits of Elaine." To ask an author of Jack's quality to flesh it out was an insult and an indignity. He wrote it because the Hearst Sunday supplements bribed him with $25,000 over and above his regular contract with Cosmopolitan. He thought the book would have a large sale; it was so badly done that in fact it failed. [Sinclair] "Romantic trash" or not, it is a Jack London title, and a none-too-common one at that.

Stanley Hall BONI AND LIVERIGHT NEW YORK (1920) First Edition, Second Printing with "SECOND EDITION" statement on the jacket and no later printings noted on copyright page, etc. "No other major modern intellectual--not Marx, not Darwin--rivals Freud as a popular advocate for his own views" (Stanford 1991, 69). This book was one of his first books to be published in America. It was copyrighted and promoted here by Edward Bernays, the great propagandist. In it, Freud, lays out all of his major ideas regarding the subject. The dust jacket states "The first comprehensive book on psychoanalysis. There are many treatises on various phases of the subject, but in this book the originator of a new school of thought that is as powerfully influential as was the Darwinian, at last sums up, in one volume, all that is known of psychoanalysis and explains its significance to the individual and society." Sigmund Freud (/frɔɪd/ FROYD;[3] German: [ˈziːkmʊnt ˈfʁɔʏt]; born Sigismund Schlomo Freud; 6 May 1856 - 23 September 1939) was an Austrian neurologist and the founder of psychoanalysis, a clinical method for treating psychopathology through dialogue between a patient and a psychoanalyst.[4] Freud was born to Galician Jewish parents in the Moravian town of Freiberg, in the Austrian Empire.

Bonfils Robert, Houville Gerard d'
SARL ABRAXAS-LIBRIS, 1920. A PERFECT CONDITION. AN EXCEPTIONAL PROVENANCE. 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 fashion from the beginning of the XXth century, by the artists who 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 offer 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 strong cardboard, 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 comes directly from the Corrard … [Click Below for Full Description]

It adds that the moulds are to be kept in the "Vault or stock room" and that daily pressing reports are to be made and "...sent to Altengarten and...Hauck."

Tight binding; clean pages and covers; lacking front endpaper; only slight wear; dust jacket is fairly clean with a little soiling, moderate wear and chipping along edges and small tears; price not clipped ($4.50). "No other major modern intellectual—not Marx, not Darwin—rivals Freud as a popular advocate for his own views" (Stanford 1991, 69). This book was one of his first books to be published in America. It was copyrighted and promoted here by Edward Bernays, the great propagandist. In it, Freud, lays out all of his major ideas regarding the subject. The dust jacket states "The first comprehensive book on psychoanalysis. There are many treatises on various phases of the subject, but in this book the originator of a new school of thought that is as powerfully influential as was the Darwinian, at last sums up, in one volume, all that is known of psychoanalysis and explains its significance to the individual and society." No other examples in dust jacket on market and this is the first we've seen. One of Freud's most important works, comprehensively discussing his views on psychoanalysis, a discipline he had earlier created. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

Contemporary account of the American steel strike, organized by the Amalgamated Association of Iron, Steel, and Tin Workers in September, 1919, in the wake of the end of World War I in an effort to reorganize the industry, though the strike ended unsuccessfully in January, 1920. This a significant association copy of the former Republican governor of Michigan (1911-1913), who noted in pencil on p. 17, in response to the massive U.S. Steel Corporation's surplus at the end of 1919: "Thou must not tread on the sensitive toes of dollars; rather on the hearts of men," adding on the following page, "rather on the bleeding hearts of mankind." Previous to his political activities, Osborn travelled widely, discovering iron mines in both Canada and Madagascar; for this, one of his memoirs was titled "The Iron-Hunter." Mary Heaton Vorse was herself a radical novelist, journalist, and editor of "The Masses," and while her relationship with Osborn is unclear, we find reference to a few pieces of correspondence, dated between 1913 and 1920, in the Mary Heaton Vorse Papers at Wayne University.
