        The Australian Victories in France in 1918

      London: Hutchinson & Co.,, 1920. Second edition. Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, gilt lettered spine. Portrait frontispiece, 30 plates from photographs, 9 coloured folding maps. From the library of Admiral of the Fleet John Rushworth Jellicoe, first Earl Jellicoe (1859-1935), commander of the Grand Fleet at Jutland (31 May - 1 June 1916). A very good copy. Presentation copy of the second edition, the same year as the first, inscribed by the author "To the Viscount Jellicoe, from the Author, John Monash Lieut-General, Dec. 1924" on the front free endpaper. A remarkable association copy, linking two of the leading commanders of the Great War: Sir John Monash (1865-1931) and Viscount Jellicoe (1859-1935). Monash was appointed by Haig to lead the 1st Anzac Corps in 1918; his skilful handling of his troops and inspired tactical thinking contributed greatly to the Allied breakthrough in the final year of the war. Liddell Hart described him as having "probably... the greatest capacity for command in modern war among all who held command [in the BEF]". Jellicoe, of course, presided over the strategic British victory at Jutland in May-June 1916.

        [Photo Album]: Snapshots of African Natives with an Emphasis on Bare-breasted Women

      Oblong octavo. String-tied stiff green boards with embossed "Photographs" on front board with blank black pages. The first half of the album has 52 mounted snapshot photographs. All are black and white and are approximately 3.5" x 2.5". Uncaptioned and undated, perhaps circa 1920. All but one of the images seem to be unique snapshots; one image may be commercial. Slight wear, near fine. The photos display scarification, chin and lip piercing. We can not confidently identify the tribe or tribes represented, but some of the images of body modification seem to conform closely to some of the decorative elements of the Karo tribe of Southern Ethiopia. The photographer/compiler, presumably a tourist, seemed most intent on preserving images of bare-breasted native women. .

        L'acollade - Yegor.

      1920 - Aquarelle et encre de Chine, s.d. (1920), sur carton, 48 x 35.5 cm, titrée sous le dessin. Maurice de BECQUE (1878-1938), a surtout travaillé pour les éditions Georges Crès et Simon Kra. Aminalier reconnu, il illustre dans cette veine L'Appel de la forêt (London), Le Livre de la jungle (Kipling), Le Roman de Renart et de nombreux contes. Ses pochoirs sompteux ont été enluminés par le grand Saudé (Osterwalder, II, 90). Pendant la première guerre mondiale, Maurice de BECQUE fut interné en Allemagne dans un camp de représailles spécial pour soldats russes. Seul au milieu de 12.000 paysans ukrainiens il en profita pour apprendre leur dialecte et recueillir des histoires fabuleuses, qui forment le fond de son répertoire littéraire et graphique. En 1922, il publie un ouvrage recueillant ces légendes (Paris, Editions de l'Abeille d'Or, in-8, broché, couverture orange rempliée, 78 pp.). Le dessin représente deux seigneurs, vêtus à la russe, se donnant l'acollade dans un paysage de campagne féérique. Pliures et petites déchirures marginales. Livres

Umberto BRUNELLESCHI (1879 Toscane-Italie, 1949 Paris) est un peintre, portraitiste, illustrateur, illustrateur de mode, publicitaire, affichiste, décorateur italien. Dans les années 1900 il collabora à des jouranux comme Le Rire, l'Assiette au Beurre ou encore Fémina, le Journal des Dames et des Modes, La Gazette du Bon Ton, La Vie Parisienne. auxquels il fournissait des illustrations raffinées. Il exposa au Salon des Indépendants et fut le directeur artistique de la Guirlande. Il créa des costumes pour les Folies Bergère, le Casino de Paris, le théâtre du Châtelet, des théâtres new-yorkais, italiens et allemands. Spécialisé dans l'illustration galante, empreinte de l'esprit du XVIIIè siècle, et dans les bouffoneries de la Commedia Dell'Arte, il développa une illustration décorative au plus haut degré du raffinement.

        Manuscript Diary of Opera Singer and Voice Teacher, Queena Marion Tillotson, a.k.a "Queena Mario," dated 1949

      Soft cover. Good. 12mo, 167 manuscript pages, written in pencil in a legible hand, bound in contemporary blue suede leather binding, spine tips chipped, covers and corners rubbed and slightly scuffed, inside hinges open, otherwise in good, clean and legible condition. A noted soprano of the 1920's and 1930's, and later a respected voice teacher, Queena Marion Tillotson was born on August 21, 1896 at Akron, Ohio. She was raised in New Jersey and studied with Polish soprano Marcella Sembrich prior to bowing with the San Carlo Opera Company in 1918. In the early 1920s she sang with baritone Antonio Scotti's touring Antonio Scotti Opera Company before making her debut with the Metropolitan Opera on November 30, 1922. Over her 345 performances at the venerable house her roles included Nedda in Leoncavallo's "I Pagliacci", Gilda from Giuseppe Verdi's "Rigoletto", Mimi in Puccini's "La Boheme", Sophie in Richard Strauss "Der Rosenvavalier", Micaela in Georges Bizet's "Carmen", and others. Queena was Gretel in Engelbert Humperdinck's "Hansel and Gretel" for the 1931 first-ever Saturday Metropolitan radio broadcast; on the West Coast she first appeared at San Francisco in 1923 as Mimi and in 1930 was the Child for the American premiere of Maurice Ravel's "L'Enfant et les Sortileges". After singing her final Metropolitan performance on December 26, 1938, she was a professor at New York's Juilliard School and Philadelphia's Curtis Institute while also earning praise under her real name as the author of opera-themed murder mysteries and, as 'Florence Bryant', of a newspaper column. A portion of her recorded legacy remains available. She married Wilfred Pelletier (1896-1982), a well-known conductor in 1925. Her marriage ended in divorce in 1936. Pelletier then married Queena's student, Rose Bampton (1907-2007) in 1937. Tillotson died on 28 May 1951 at New York City and was buried at Woodlawn Cemetery at Brooklyn, New York. The diary entries relate the events of a European trip taken by Tillotson in the summer of 1949. The diary mentions a number of famous people she spent time with while in Europe, one being the actor Gene Lockhart, June Lockhart's father and a number of well-known opera singers, including Giacomo Lauri Volpi (1892-1979). The diary includes a tipped in letter (1 page) from Volpi, written to Queena. While not dated, it was written to her and sent to her hotel on June 18th, 1949. Giovanni Martinelli (1885-1969) is another friend who she spends time with while in Italy. Martinelli was a celebrated Italian operatic tenor and enjoyed a long career at the Metropolitan Opera, and Tito Ruffo. The larger portion of her trip is in Italy, but the diary begins in Marseille (France) on June 11th. She spends much of her time in Italy, touring various cities, in particular Rome, Florence, and Venice. She also visited Naples, Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast, Siena and other places. One of the more interesting entries is when she visits the Vatican and has an audience with the Pope, described in great detail. While in Europe she attends many operatic and theatre performances, usually dining and having drinks with the vocalists, whom she knows. She also mentions the after effects of WWII upon the cities and towns she visits. Her trip ends September 11th with one short paragraph about her travels home.

        Les Champs magnétiques

      Au Sans Pareil, Paris 1920 - EDITION ORIGINALE dédiée à la mémoire de Jacques Vaché. En double frontispice, portraits des auteurs par Francis Picabia. Tirage à 180 exemplaires numérotés. Un des 150 sur vergé d'Arches. --------->C'est Apollinaire qui présenta en juin 1917 Philippe Soupault à André Breton. En septembre de la même année, il rencontre cette fois Louis Aragon. Les trois jeunes hommes se retrouvent en parfaite communion d'esprit autour de Lautréamont et de ses CHANT DE MALDOROR, dont Soupault possédait un exemplaire qu'ils lisaient à haute voix. Durant l'été 1918, unis également par leur intérêt pour l'art contemporain, ils envisagent un livre en commun sur la peinture, projet abandonné un an plus tard au profit de la création de la revue Littérature dont la direction est confiée aux trois écrivains, et dont le premier numéro parait en mars 1919. C'est à cette période que tous s'adonnent à l'écriture automatique que Breton et Soupault utilisent en mai de l'année suivante pour écrire LES CHAMPS MAGNETIQUES. Le livre paraît en mai 1920 au Sans Pareil dont le directeur René Hilsum avait connu Breton au lycée Chaptal, et chez qui les auteurs avaient déjà publié un livre l'année précédente : ROSE DES VENTS de Soupault et MONT DE PIETE de Breton. En plus du tirage numéroté il existe des exemplaires ordinaires sur bouffant sans les portraits et portant la mention de deuxième édition. >> BEL EXEMPLAIRE [Attributes: Soft Cover]
