        Cinéma calendrier du cœur abstrait maisons.

      Paris AU SANS PAREIL 1920Paris, imprimé par V. Holten, collection dada en dépôt au sans pareil, 37 avenue kléber, 1920, petit in-4, couvertures muettes, non paginé (80 pages) Livre quasi-mythique de la grande époque Dada, souvent décrit comme « le plus beau livre Dada » dans lequel le dialogue entre Tristan TZARA et Jean ARP s'équilibre grâce à l'adaptation et à l'adéquation de la disposition des 19 bois abstraits de ARP et la mise en page du texte. Ce dialogue est facilité grâce à l'ouverture de l'ouvrage à plat, permis par l'agrafage des feuilles (in correspondance Arp-Tzara dans "Dada Circuit total", L'Age d'Homme). Tristan TZARA, brosse dans ses poèmes, un portrait-charge de leurs amis dadas, et c'est avec humour que Jean ARP répond. Tirage limité à 150 exemplaires sur vélin, cet exemplaire n'est pas contresigné par l'auteur, ni l'artiste. Malgré l'importante restauration professionnelle sur le haut de toutes les pages, l'absence du bandeau rouge, cet ouvrage reste un superbe livre, saisissant et incontournable. (Monod 10792, Arntz55-77)

        Chinese carpet workshop pattern book

      Shanghai c1920 - Chinese Art Deco period carpet designs. Workshop pattern book with 21 original hand-painted gouache designs mounted on rectos of laid-paper album leaves representing a variety of samples with specifications for producing a range of qualities of woolen rug in 2 sizes; designs measuring from 220 x 192mm to 266 x 197mm; 220 x 220mm. Shanghai, c. 1920 Large 4to. Overall size : 450 x 350 mm. Contemporary greenish-grey cloth over stiff boards; decorative floral endpapers; yellow printed binder’s ticket (Nanyang Printing Co, Book-Binder and Stationary, 435 Kiukiang Road, Shanghai) pasted inside top corner of frontcover. The blank margin of each design incorporates the colour palette used; top margin of each design page with a pasted contemporary paper slip giving a typed code-word to explain the knot or line count of each individual sample,and the sizes of the rugs available for production : 9 x 12 ft & 8 x 10 ft; a typed note pasted inside frontcover provides a key for 7 of the code words and their quality specifications (the code words refer to qualities ranging from a ‘120 line Wool Rug’ to a ’60 line Wool Rug’ , each type decreasing in density of knots by 10 ‘lines’, the number of lines of knots per foot determining the line count); the blank margins of 5 designs (nos 4, 12, 14, 15, 20) have brief pencil and pen instructions in American-English with finishing details; blank margins of 3 pages (nos 3, 4, 7) bear a blind-stamp of the anonymous artist’s emblem with an elephant motif. The patterns in the present album appear to have been painted by a commercial artist working in a Shanghai carpet factory under American direction catering for western consumer tastes. The carefully executed designs, based on the traditional medallion type, arer richly ornamented with exquisite floral and chinoiserie motifs in vibrant colours evocative of the exuberance of Art Deco: traditional light blues have changed to darker shades, yellows and ivories are replaced by more dynamic purples, fuchsias, green, ochre and gold. Both designs and colouring are well preserved; blank corners of album leaves lightly waterstained, a few minor traces of usage, otherwise in remarkably good condition for a working manual of this kind. Chinese Art Deco rugs represent the ‘Golden Age’ of Shanghai, then known as the ‘Paris of the East’. Its wool industries responded to western demand during the economic boom of the 1920ies by producing high quality carpets in the fashionable colours and patterns of the period. A number of American.entrepreneurs were involved in this process, notably Walter Nichols and Helen Fette, and the present album is representative of patterns selected for export by a factory under western direction.

        The Pageant of Peking.

      Comprising Sixty-six Vandyck Photogravures of Peking and Environs from Photographs by Donald Mennie. With an Introduction by Putnam Weale. Shanghai: Watson 1920. With 66 tipped in Vandyck photogravures of Peking and environs. Folio. [8] + 40 pp. + plates. Limited to 1000 numbered copies. Well-preserved copy bound in original light blue leather gilt on spine and with title printed in gold on frontboard. Binding faded, internally very clean. First edition. Donald Mennie (1875/1876 - 1944), was a Scottish businessman and amateur photographer who worked in early twentieth century China. From 1920 until his death in 1941, Mennie was a very powerful entrepreneur in coastal China. As a photographer, Mennie probably used the wet plate process, already a largely obsolete method in his time, and for his published prints, he mainly employed photogravure, a process emphasising the image softness and subtle tonal variation that suited his interest in pictorialism. Between 1914 and 1927 he published several books of his images, including The Pageant of Peking (1920), providing views of Beijing and its environs. [Wikipedia].

        European Circuses Scrap Books (3 volumes)

      1920s, 1934-1938. Hardcover. Good. 4to. 32 by 27 cm. Mostly comprised of photographs, which have generally brief captions describing what is depicted -- the buildings, the infrastructure, the performers, the audience and other denizens of the circus, etc. Most of the photos are original, with some cut-outs from other publications. Also pasted in are programs, promotions and brochures associated with these circuses. The scrap books were obviously intended as a tool for set designers, costume designers, scenarists, screenwriters, and anyone associated with a production, prospective and/or in the works, that had or could have a circus scene. While MGM was the largest studio in the thirties, we are hard-pressed to think of notable movies it was involved with during these years with circus scenes. Perhaps its best known circus-related movie up to then was "He Who Gets Slapped", a 1924 vehicle for Lon Chaney Sr. and also starring the young Norma Shearer and John Gilbert, and one can see the relevance of many of the photos to that movie. While the movie clearly pre-dates the scrapbooks, it is apparent that MGM seriously considered a sound era remake of the silent movie, as evident from the surviving library cards in the volumes. (Why the studio didn't proceed with a remake of what had been a major hit we can not answer.) In the mid-1930s MGM also bought the rights to the musical extravaganza, "Jumbo", and that particular property surely did spur the compilation of these photos. That adaptation, though, didn't come to fruition until the early 1960s when Doris Day starred in it. The major circus-related movies of which we are aware, such as "Trapeze" or "The Greatest Show on Earth", were done by other studios. Still, regardless of how much MGM capitalized on this material for actual movies is beside the point. Here we get what seems an unvarnished glimpse of the circus, and specifically European circuses, from a bygone era. Considerable wear to the bindings. The photos can have rippling. MGM has its name stamped on most pages and often on the photos themselves.

        MANUSCRIPT AERONAUTICAL REPAIR And MAINTENANCE NOTEBOOK. Dudrey Aircraft Co

      [Portland, OR], (n. d.). Circa 1920. Maroon leather 3-ring binder. Outline remnants of airplane and other shape to front board [Dudrey Aircraft Co logo?]. Wear, scuffing, and faint spotting to binder, some corrosion to metal backstrip. Light bleedthrough to few pages of manuscript text; some edgewear to promotional and laid in material; occasional light soil; first leaf detached at two of the three binding holes. Generally clean and highly readable throughout. About VG.. 83 leaves, many with text and/or clippings to recto only; some blanks; additional aeronautic promotional material bound or laid in. Most pages ruled. Occasional hand-drawn diagrams, b/w photographic reproductions in instructional clippings. 10" x 6-3/4" Cyril Krugner's manuscript instructional notebook presumably for Dudrey Aircraft Company's aeronautic school, covering aeronautical repair, various engines, standardization, meteorology, a brief history of aviation, algorithms, and much more. Krugner is most well-known for having been the mechanic on Russell Merrill's flight to Ketchikan with Roy Davis in 1925, only the second such flight from the continental US to Alaska. Although the notebook begins with a Foreword followed by Krugner's signature, address, and "Dudrey Aircraft Co.," we speculate that Krugner was a student at the school, perhaps copying material from a shared class book or other source, rather than an instructor or employee there. Krugner was listed as an employee of Willamette Iron and Steel Works in the 1918 Portland city directory, and as an ironworker in later directories until 1923, when he moved from the address listed in this notebook; the sporadic and inconsistent pagination also suggests that much of this material is derived from other sources, with perhaps the mathematics and some of the diagrams being Krugner's. Dudrey Aircraft Company was one of the earliest to take advantage of the boom in aviation in Portland by offering courses at Broomfield Flying Field in both aeronautical mechanics and piloting; they also proudly advertised the fact that their student body included both the first woman and the first Chinese man to attend any of the aviation schools in the city. In 1920, Dudrey offered free courses as part of federal vocational training, and it seems likely that Krugner took advantage of this opportunity or a similar one while working at Willamette's. He later worked as a draftsman or mechanic at Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company, Varney Air Lines (which would later merge with three other companies to become United Air Lines), and the Bonneville Project. In addition to the manuscript material, which includes technical specifications for the Hall-Scott L-6, Rolls Royce Aero and Hispano-Suiza engines, Krugner compiled and bound in promotional trade catalogs and other material for the Curtiss K-12, OX-5, and K-6, and pasted in material on the Zeppelin-Staaken Monoplone. A price list for Weaver rifles is laid in, as is an oil-stained packing slip from Curtiss Aeroplane and Motor Corp, dated March 26, 1918, on the back of which is a penciled drawing diagramming the interrelationship of gas pumps and piping. Overall, a fascinating example of early aviation instruction, compiled by a young draftsman and mechanic at the start of his career.

        [FUTURIST LANGUAGE] Grammatika yazyka chelovechestva AO, perevod s AO [i.e. Grammar of the Language of the Mankind. Translated from AO]

      Chelovechestvo [i.e. Mankind]: Moscow, 1920. [2], 20 pp. 16x13 cm. In contemporary wrappers. Tears and soiling of the wrappers. Otherwise very good. In 1915 Velimir Khlebnikov founded 'Soyuz 317' (i.e. The Unity of 317 or The Society of the Chairmen of the Globe), and soon it was joined by the members of artistic avant-garde elite like Prokofiev or Rabindranath Tagore. Khlebnikov's proclamations of that time transmitted ideas of universal brotherhood and the unity of people of culture who are destined to rule the universe. This brochure was created by Gordin brothers who were influenced by Khelbnikov's ideas (hence the pseudonym of the author of the text - Beobi which was taken from Khlebnikov's poem). The Gordin brothers took futuristic ideas on the new anarchic level. Brothers Aba (1887-1964) and Volf Gordin were theoreticians of anarchism, followers of Kropotkin and Bakunin. Aba was the founder of a new movement - individualist anarchism (or universalist anarchism). They've created their own organization and called themselves «panarchists». In 1917-1920 they published several brochures on panarchism. In 1920 Volf created language of international communication and named it AO. On the first page of this grammar book it's stated: «There is no god, no nature. Talk like humans, use 'AO'». In the brochure they give alphabet, pronunciation rules, parts of speech, abbreviations etc. There were only eleven sounds in the language, five vowels and six consonants. In writing sounds were depicted by numbers. Gordin stressed that his language is universal, and universality excludes any existing alphabets. In 1924 writing of the language was reformed, and AO-2 was presented at the First International exhibition of interplanetary machines and mechanisms in 1927 as the language of cosmic communication. This brochure isn't recorded anywhere. Possibly one of the few copies produced.

In the latter book, Rackham broke new ground in the illustration of Irish literature. He had been persuaded to tackle Stephens's stories by Walter Starkie, who had vowed to give his uncle 'no peace' until he had agreed to illustrate them. In writing the stories, Stephens had attempted to create an Irish equivalent of The Arabian Nights, his own poetic retelling of the stories which existed in the oral tradition and in Gaelic texts, but which had not appeared accessibly in print. Rackham rose to the occasion, and his nephew's haunting of him was justified. The Dublin Independent was particularly warm in welcoming the collection, remarking: 'We read English tales with appreciation because pictures have familiarised us with English imagery. A Fenian tale lacks imagery because we have no art to give it colour and shape to what are presently only names. Some of Mr. Rackham's pictures are pure poems - they set you dreaming." (Hamilton, p. 128)."Rackham's two great books of the twenties were James Stephens' Irish Fairy Tales of 1920 and Shakespeare's Tempest of 1926... Beyond the softness of style and inventiveness, the most striking thing about the colour plates for Irish Fairy Tales is the felicitous and appropriate use of celtic borders" (Gettings, p. 143).Latimore and Haskell, p. 52. Riall, p. 138. Gettings, p.179. Hamilton, p. 185.

Edmond Heuzé, pseudonyme d'Amédée Letrouvé (1884-1967), est un dessinateur, peintre, graveur et écrivain français. Pendant une trentaine d'années, Edmond Heuzé vivra de dix-sept petits métiers divers : Nénesse le fait entrer sous le pseudo de « Williams » comme danseur dans la troupe du Moulin Rouge avec La Goulue, ce qui lui permet de faire le tour du monde. Il devient également marchand, intermédiaire, camelot, régisseur de cirque ambulant, danseur de claquettes chez Maxim's, etc. C'est dans cette dernière profession qu'il aura l'occasion de peindre le monde du cirque à ses moments de loisirs. Il épouse Nina Bacquet, la directrice du cirque Médrano. Réformé en 1904, il s'engage comme volontaire en 1914. Avant la déclaration de la Première Guerre mondiale, il était conservateur de la collection d'émaux du grand-duc Nicolas Mikhaïlovitch de Russie. Il est incorporé au bout de six tentatives infructueuses comme gardien au magasin d'habillement du 22e régiment d'infanterie, comme André Utter, et s'en inspira pour une série de peintures intitulée Les Masques. En 1918, après divers métiers, il devient directeur de la Galerie Sagot, rue Laffitte, où il vend des toiles de ses amis Maurice Utrillo, Suzanne Valadon, Rouault, ainsi que les siennes.

Evans, in which his gift for silhouette was given full play?" (Derek Hudson. Arthur Rackham. His Life and Work, p. 108)."Rackham gave his talk to on Silhouettes to the Art Workers' Guild in November 1919, the month in which Cinderella, the first of his two great silhouette books, was published. Cinderella and The Sleeping Beauty differed from Rackhams' preceding books in relying almost wholly for their effect on silhouette. It is immediately clear that Rackham is a master of the medium, being able to evoke character and humour by profile and gesture alone, and allowing the two-dimensional effect of his pen work to lead the reader through the book and keep the story going. Silhouette books, even with additional colours had lower production costs than their colour plate equivalents, and so were an attractive option both for publishers and customers in the uncertain post-war market."

It was begun in 1896 [as THE RESCUER] as an attempt to capitalize on the popularity of Lingard... But the book just would not sort itself out and it took Conrad another twenty years, working on it sporadically, before the much laboured over manuscript was finally completed 25 May 1919. [Cagle]~This copy is from the first printing (gathered in 8s -- the second printing is virtually identical but is gathered in 16s). Included is the very scarce dust jacket, unusual for the DP&Co Conrad books in that it is pictorial; it too is in the first state, with the $1.90 price on the front turn-in increased to $2.00 with an over-stamp. This is a fine, bright copy; the jacket is near-fine with minor wear at the foot of its spine (affecting the letter "P"). In our experience this jacket is scarcer than several earlier American Conrad jackets; it is also much scarcer than Dent's edition's jacket. Cagle A49a.

        Zelenaia palochka: dvukhnedel'nyi illiustrirovannyi zhurnal dlia detei [The green stick: a bi-weekly illustrated journal for children]. Nos. 1 and 4. With original subscription form blank for 1921.

      Paris: Russkoe knigoizdatel'stvo "Sever" 1920 - Small quartos (27 x 18 cm). Staple-stitched pictorial wrappers; 33, [7] and 43, [5] pp. Illustrations and advertisements. Wrappers dust-soiled; corners chipped; one issue with tears to spine extremities; text evenly toned and brittle; subscription form in very good condition. Two (of eight) issues of this Russian emigre children's journal of poetry, short stories, and fairy tales, published by in Paris and printed by the Zemgor, a Russian relief association re-established in Paris in 1920 with the aim of providing aid for Russian refugees, especially children. The journal published the works of some of the best Russian writers active in the emigration, such as Konstantin Balmont, Ivan Bunin, Aleksandr Kuprin, and Sasha Chernyi. Among its illustrators were Sergei Sudeikin, Georgii Lukomskii, and Nikolai Remizov (Re-Mi), though the cover illustration appears to be unattributed. These two issues contain contributions by Ivan Bunin, Aleksei Kuprin, Nikolai Rubakin, M. Pervukhin, A. Drozdov, M. Struve, and Count A. Tolstoy, an obituary of Leonid Andreev, as well as numerous illustrations. The journal's name, which means &#147;the green stick,&#148; derives from a story Tolstoy was told as a child, according to which a magical green stick with an inscription was buried on the family's estate; were it to be found, it would destroy evil and bring happiness to mankind. Evidently, only eight issues were published of this bi-weekly journal (October 1920-January 1921). KVK, OCLC show scattered holdings at Amherst, McGill, NYPL, UNC Chapel Hill, Stanford and Utah.
