Intéressante lettre de Winston Churchill, vivement opposé au bolchévisme, qui s'inquiète de l'évolution de la situation dans le sud de la Russie. "The situation in S.

        LIEBESFREUDE. [CHÈRE JOIE]. 15 HANDKOLORIERTE BLATTER VON ANTONIO FRANCESCO. Für du freunde des künstlers als. Privat-Druck in einer einmaligen auflage von 240 exemplaren hergestellt. Nr. 1-40 sind vollständige original-arbeit des künstlers und von ihm handschriftlich signiert. Nr. 41-200 wurde auf graphischem wege vervielfältigt und mit der hand koloriert. [15 compositions coloriées à la main par Antonio Francesco. Pour les amis de l'artiste. Impression privée. Tirage à 240 exemplaires. N°1-40 signés par l'artiste. N°41-200 aquarellés à la main.].

      Dieses exemplar trägt die nummer 129. 1920 - Dieses exemplar trägt die nummer 129. S.l.n.n., 1920 Portfolio 43 x 30 contenant 1 feuillet de titre et justification et 15 feuillets de compositions érotiques aquarellées au pochoir (feuilles : 42 x 28,8 cm - 32 x 22,8 cm pour les compositions contrecollées sur carton gris). Les compositions sont tirées sur papier du Japon, ainsi que la page de titre. Portfolio avec quelques traces de manipulation, complet. Planches en excellent état. Tirage à 200 exemplaires (et non 240 comme indiqué par erreur). On ne sait rien de l'artiste "Antonio Francesco" qui est probablement un pseudonyme. Son style est caractéristique. Les formes sont esquissées, diffuses, les couleurs appliquées au pochoir viennent renforcer l'impression de légèreté et adoucir des scènes presque toutes très érotiques pour ne pas dire totalement explicites. On y voit des scènes champêtres : scène de voyeurisme et cueillette des pommes dans le verger, pénétration à l'ombre des arbres, devant le miroir, scène de pénétration encore dans la campagne, un faune s'accouplant à une jeune blonde, accouplement au balcon au clair de lune, accouplement sous les étoiles, accouplement au soleil sous une ombrelle, etc. Il faut également noter l'erreur dans la justification du tirage qui doit être de 200 exemplaires seulement et non 240 comme annoncé sur la page de titre. En effet, si il est annoncé un tirage total de 240 exemplaires il est difficile de comprendre pourquoi il est indiqué que les 40 premiers exemplaires (N°1 à 40) sont suivis par les exemplaires N°41 à 200. Les exemplaires N°201 à 240 ne sont pas décrits et n'existent probablement pas. Très bon exemplaire de ce rare portfolio érotique. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Dr. Mabuse der Spieler. [Ullstein-Bücher. Eine Sammlung zeitgenössischer Romane]. First German edition.

      Illustrierter Pappband, kl-8, 249 [3] S. - Kanten berieben, Kapital etwas beschädigt, Papier gebräunt, Gelenke etwas gelockert/ hard board, small 8vo, 249 pp, 3 np sheets -worn, crown with little damage, paper browned, hinge slightly shaken. The american copyright is mentioned with 1920 actually the book is printed later here *Die zwei in der Südsee* published 1922 is advertised. First Edition, preceding all others. One of the most important film sources of the twentieth century, basis for Fritz Lang's 1922 silent masterpiece, Dr. Mabuse the Gambler. Dr. Mabuse was one of the earliest examples of film noir characterization, and remained an obsession with Lang until the end of his film career. "Norbert Jacques (1880 in Luxemburg-Eich bis 1954 in Koblenz) war ein deutschsprachiger Schriftsteller luxemburgischer Herkunft, der heute hauptsächlich für die von ihm geschaffene Figur des Dr. Mabuse bekannt ist....Seine Fähigkeiten der Verkleidung und der Beeinflussung anderer Personen nutzt Mabuse aus, um sich auch in der High Society frei bewegen zu können. Der Roman nutzt den Charakter, um dem Leser den *schmutzigen Unterleib* der Weimarer Republik vor Augen zu führen. In den Augen des Verfassers und seines Protagonisten ist Europa verrottet bis auf den Kern, erfüllt vom Leichengestank des vorangegangenen Krieges und bevölkert von Aasgeiern in Frack und Zylinder. Der Traum der Romanfigur Dr. Mabuse ist die Schaffung einer neuen Gesellschaft, frei von Korruption und Fäulnis. Er plant eine utopische Kolonie in Brasilien namens Eitopomar, die er mit den Früchten seiner Verbrechen auf die Beine stellen möchte. (Eine spätere Fortsetzung, Mabuses Kolonie, blieb unvollendet.)"

        Katastroofid : 1919-1920 (Catastrophes : 1919-1920) [Poetry Collection]

      Auringo, Tallinn 1920 - Estonian language. Octavo 15 x 23 cm. Weight 80 gr. Wrappers, 63 [1] pp. The book is in Fine condition without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Small creases across cover corners, repaired upper right corner of front cover (minor corner missing piece was replaced with triangle paper from the inner side), right and bottom edge of front cover show very slight fraying; internally perfect unread copy with uncut pages. The third collection of verses relates to author's early Expressionist period of creation, and poems included here imbued with sensuality and enjoyment glorification, which had broken existing traditions and morality of literature. In modernist urban descriptions the problem of the poor and the rich is raised by author. He depicts cities in the daytime and at night: the first is connected with working class people, the factory proletariat, and the latter with prostitutes, buying and selling human beings. Catastrophic descriptions of the world's disgust and rebellion sound very vividly. The impending global Catastrophe passes through the verses. Author shows his protesting, militant, active attitude, a wish for a better time and era, created by the class of the poor. The position of Johannes Vares-Barbarus (1890–1946) in Estonian history and culture is contradictory. On the one hand, he was a remarkable doctor of the name of Vares, on the other hand, a poet named Barbarus, whose modernistic poems were not always appreciated. Moreover, in the 1940s he was one of the leading figures in the Sovietization of Estonia. That's why his figure and poetry having received so much attention. He published fourteen collections of verse, which style varied greatly during his career. After neo-romanist debut, followed expressionist verses, which gradually gave way to the avant-garde collections Geomeetriline inimene (The Geometrical Man, 1924) and Multiplitseerit inimene(Multiplied Man, 1927) followed the trends of French modernism and cubism and considered his best works. From then on poetry took more realistic turn, antibourgeois attitudes and leftist views became increasingly evident. After the fall of the bourgeois regime in Estonia he became president of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Estonian SSR (1940-46). Afraid of the NKVD, he committed suicide in 1946. Constructivist graphic cover design of the book created by Aleksander Mülber (1897-1931). Unique and talented artist of Ants Laikmaa Atelier School, during his study he created paintings in national romanticism style, later turned to Expressionism. Finally cultivated more rationalist, playful form of expressionism identified as cubo-futurism. Today little remains of his artworks. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Portugiesische Briefe. Die Briefe der Marianna Alcoforado, übertragen von R. M. Rilke. Nachwort von F. Bergemann. 21.-25. Tausend (= Insel-Bücherei, Nr. 74).

      Insel ohne Jahr [1920], Leipzig - 49 S., 1 Blatt. Orig.-Pappband. Das Vorsatzpapier mit eigenhändiger, kalligraphischer und monogrammierter Widmung des Malers Melchior Lechter (1865-1937) in blaß-lila Tinte: " 'Der Welt holdester Wahn!' Für 'EDITH' als Abschieds-Gruss 15. XI. [19]27 von ML." Es handelt sich wohl um ein Abschiedsgeschenk Lechters vom Besuch bei Edith Landmann (1847-1951), der Philosophin und Frau des in Basel lehrenden Ökonoms Julius Landmann, die - ebenso wie Lechter als Buchgestalter der Werke Georges - zum engeren langjährigen Kreis um den Dichter Stefan George gehörte. Besonderen Reiz bekommt das Bändchen dadurch, daß Rilke im George-Kreis offiziell als unerheblich abgelehnt und keineswegs geschätzt wurde. Indem Lechter diese Veröffentlichung verschenkt und durch seine Widmung auszeichnet, unterstreicht er sowohl seine eigene, als auch die intellektuelle Unabhängigkeit der Empfängerin von Georges rigorosem Urteil. Papierbedingt leicht gebräunt und der Rücken an den Gelenken aufgeplatzt sowie oben mit ca. 3 cm großer Fehlstelle (das fehlende Stück des Rückens liegt dem Buch bei!), insgesamt handelt es sich jedoch um ein noch ordentliches, akzeptables Exemplar.

      [Probably Istanbul or Ankara, Turkey, late s or 1930s]. 1920 - Lithography on thinner paper 4 x 55 cm (soft folds with small loss of image in the folds, old repaired tears verso, slightly-age toned and water stained, otherwise in a good condition). A fascinating, extremely rare Turkish 20th century map by a military historian Hakki Tümerdem shows the development of the Battle of Dumlup?nar, the last battle in the Greco-Turkish War in 1922. - A magnificent map in Turkish language shows the development of the Battle of Dumlup?nar, fought from August 26 to August 30 1922, between the Turkish Army and the Greek Army of Asia Minor. It was also called Field Battle of the Commander-in-Chief or Dumlup?nar (Meydan) Muharebesi or Ba?kumandanl?k Meydan Muharebesi in Turkish. The blue lines represent Greek troops and red lines the Turkish ones. The battle, which was the last battle in the Greco-Turkish War (1919–1922), as part of the Turkish War of Independence, forced the Greeks to leave Anatolia by mid September. The Armistice of Mudanya was signed by Turkey, Italy, France and Great Britain on 11 October 1922. The map was made by an author and a teacher of military history (harp tarihi muallimi) Hakki Tu?merdem. Tu?merdem was an author of several books on Turkish military history, published mostly in 1930s. We could not trace any other examples of the map on the market nor in institutions worldwide.

        [Archive]: 24 Photographs Mounted on Boards from China, Trinidad, Jamaica, Ceylon, Philippines, Mexico, Brazil, Costa Rica, and Japan, prepared for the Museum of Philadelphia

      Philadelphia: Philadelphia Museums, 1920. Very Good. An archive of 24 larger black and white gelatin silver photographs mounted to cardboard. The photos all measure around 7" x 9" mounted on 10" x 12" boards with stamped captions on the front and a printed description on the verso. All boards are slightly bowed with edgewear thus very good with near fine photographs.A collection of photographs taken for the Museum of Philadelphia with "The Philadelphia Museums" stamped on the corner of each board. They were collected in the 1920s from a number of different countries including China, Trinidad, Jamaica, Ceylon, Philippines, Mexico, Brazil, Costa Rica, and Japan, which is the most heavily featured here with nine photographs. The photos were then used as part of the Museum's mission to discover new ways of instructing students and museum-goers on the various cultures of the world. These photographs focus on the raw and manufactured materials which are critical to the economy of each of the countries and the people who cultivate them. Each photograph has a caption under the photograph such as "Drying Cacao" on a photograph of workers in Trinidad. On the verso of each photo is a longer description explaining the process pictured as well as what the end product would be, in this case chocolate, and how the product and cultivation of it affects the country of origin. This is a portion of the description from the Cacao photo: "The laborers in Trinidad are of two classes -- negroes of African descent and Malay coolies from the East Indies, imported under contract for a term of years. These Malays, most of whom are Mohammedans, are an industrious class and at the expiration of their contracts not infrequently remain on the island and make good settlers."The collection compiled here includes the following:1) Iron Furanace -- Hankow, China2) Drying Cacao -- Trinidad3) Cacao Tree in Fruit -- Trinidad4) Making Tortillas -- Mexico5) Mining -- Mexico6) Picking Coffee -- Brazil7) Making Cocoanut Oil -- Ceylon8) Cocoanut Plantation -- Ceylon9) Graphite Mine -- Ceylon10) Paddy Fields -- Ceylon11) Feeding Silk Worms -- Japan12) Reeling Silk -- Japan13) Picking Tea -- Japan14) Going to Market -- Japan15) Separating Rice from the Straw -- Japan16) Weaving -- Japan17) Transplanting Rice -- Japan18) Preparing Tea, Pan Firing -- Japan19) Cutting Rice -- Japan20) Opening Cacao Fruit -- Jamaica21) Coffee Tree -- Costa Rica22) Drying Coffee -- Costa Rica23) Opening Cocoanuts -- Philippine Islands24) Tea, Leaves, Flowers, and FruitsAccording to a 1921 museum bulletin these instructional photographs "illustrate the important commercial products of the world present conditions of life and industry in all countries opportunities for studying the life and customs of the lands and illustrate the useful products of the vegetable, animal, and mineral kingdoms... they illustrate geography commerce economics." The museum offered classes to students who wanted to learn about the world's economy stating "the main object of which to teach the rising generation the important basic facts and principles which underlie modern industry."A nice collection of educational guides displaying a variety of industries from around the world in the 1920s through excellent photographs.

        Original drawing in graphite on paper of Anna Pavlova en pointe. Signed in full by the artist at lower right and titled "Pavlova" at lower left

      The most celebrated dancer of her time, "[Pavlova's] technique was so perfect that it concealed technique. her arabesque and pas de bourrée have rarely been equaled, and... her line was always impeccable... As an interpretive artist Pavlova probably, even today, remains unsurpassed. She was supreme in roles requiring feminine coquetry and light comedy; she excelled in lyrical and poetic roles in which her fluid, expressive arms and hands were remarkable; and she could be deeply moving in dramatic and tragic roles such as Nikia and Giselle. What made her performances unique, however, was not so much her technical mastery or even her talent at characterization; it was the emotion she poured into her performances, her incomparable stage presence - in short, the power of her personality." The International Encyclopedia of Dance, Vol. 5, pp. 125-126. Laura Knight, the first female English artist to be elected to full membership in the Royal Academy. She is well-recognized for her work in the genre of ballet. "During 1920 and 1921 Laura met, and painted backstage, some of the most famous ballet dancers of the day from Sergei Diaghilev's Ballet Russes. Her subjects included Lydia Lopokova, Anna Pavlova, and the dance teacher Enrico Cecchetti." Wikipedia.. Sheet size 355 mm. x 218 mm. (14" x 8.5"). On laid paper. With preparatory sketch of a dancer (in all likelihood Pavlova) in fluid motion to verso. Provenance: Alister Mathews, art dealer in Bournemouth, England. Slightly worn and creased; small edge tear.
