        Au Royaume de la Perle

      1920. first edition. First French EditionDecorated With Extra Designs, Not Found In The English Language Editions[DULAC, Edmund, illustrator]. ROSENTHAL, Léonard. Au Royaume de la Perle. Illustrations de Edmond Dulac. Paris: L'Edition D'Art. H. Piazza, [October 1920].First French edition. One of 1,500 copies. Large quarto (11 7/8 x 9 1/4 inches; 302 x 234 mm.). 139, [1, printer?'s imprint] pp. Ten mounted color plates, with descriptive tissue guards.Original strong blue color wrappers, embossed and ornamented with sponge-like designs in silver and gilt; small paper label printed with brown lettering and design on front cover. This copy is not numbered but is an "Examplaire Offert par Léonard Rosenthal a M. Poupon". A fine copy."The French edition also is decorated with the following extra designs, not found in English language editions: 14 chapter headpieces, each different, formed by large white initials, black and light olive designs of seahorses, starfish, octopus, conch shells, etc.; 3 additional headpieces; 9 tailpieces; half-title design; 2 frames for letterpress on limitation and printer's pages."?"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 ?'Pearl?' pictures indeed display a ripening of a Dulac style first seen in Sindbad the Sailor, employed in some of his Fairy Book pictures and developed fully in The Tanglewood Tales. It is a Persian miniature style, but made quite his own…His plates, truly genius, do much to bring a fanciful touch to the otherwise stark exposition of a treatise on pearls?" (Hughey).Hughey, 54a.

        [SIGNIFICANT ARCHIVE OF FORTY-TWO ORIGINAL WATERCOLORS AND PENCIL DRAWINGS OF HOFSTATTER FURNITURE AND INTERIOR DESIGNS]

      [New York, ca. 1920-1940].. Forty-two original works, from approximately 9 x 7 1/4 inches to 14 1/2 x 11 1/2 inches. Most on paper and mounted to cardboard backing, some executed on art board, some matted. Minor dust-soiling to some, several examples have pencil drawings of room layouts or floor plans on the verso, Hofstatter stamps to verso of two, a few examples detached from mount. Overall clean and in excellent condition, retaining vibrant coloring. A stellar group of thirty-nine original watercolors and three original pencil drawings depicting early 20th century furniture designs, largely in the French Provincial style. The artwork was executed by New York furniture designer and interior decorator Theodore Hofstatter, or artists working for his firm. The group includes wonderful depictions of mirrors, beds, window drapes, chairs, desks, bureaus, tables, and stands. Additionally, there are eleven works showing the interior design of various room settings. Theodore Hofstatter succeeded his father in their New York City business of furniture design and construction, naming the firm Hofstatter's Sons when his brother Adolph joined him in the concern in the early 1870s. The Hofstatter family concentrated their efforts on building quality furniture at wholesale prices. In 1885, Theodore Hofstatter founded a branch of the business to focus on interior decorating, opening a separate location on Broadway near Twelfth St. Eventually, the business would move to at least two different addresses on Fifth Ave., evidenced by Hofstatter labels affixed to the verso of several of the watercolors here (a few of these labels are also marked "Special Design" by Hofstatter). Theodore's design business, according to THE NATIONAL CYCLOPEDIA OF AMERICAN BIOGRAPHY (1894), "kept abreast ever since [its opening] with the current of fashionable taste in illustrating, in the styles reproduced, all those characteristics with which the names inseparably connected with the history of the three Louis are essentially a part. Berain, Lebrun, Watteau, Andre, Charles Boule, have now a historical significance; Cailleri, Gouthiere, Reisener, Fragonard, Greuze, Boucher, Martin, and the rest, awaken a whole train of associations. It is through their influence, and such as theirs, that Theodore Hofstatter's designs possess the material to produce only those effects that can be truthfully termed good style." Hofstatter restricted his decorating contracts largely to commercial interests, furnishing the City Club, the Downtown Club, the Arkwright Club, and nine floors of the Hotel Savoy. He also cultivated a small group of private clients, one of whom was Cornelius Dresselhuys, Dutch consul to Great Britain. Two of Dresselhuys's rooms, the Entrance Hall and Vestibule, at 9 Kensington Palace Gardens in London are featured here in lovely full watercolors. A fascinating group of artwork featuring furniture and interiors from a prominent New York City furniture maker and interior designer. Such original illustrations of furniture and interior decoration are, in our experience, quite scarce.

        Original Frank Hurley Photographs of New Guinea.

      1920 -1923 1920 - Original publicity photographs by James Francis (Frank) Hurley (1885-1962) the Australian photographer, filmmaker and writer known for his Antarctic photographs, including the destruction of Ernest Shackleton's ship 'Endurance'. After that harrowing journey, Hurley vowed to visit the hottest place on earth, and he undertook two long expeditions to the Torres Strait and New Guinea between 1920 and 1923. From this, he developed a successful anthropological film, 'Pearls and Savages' and the book by the same title. He documented the people, their rites, houses, villages, artifacts, and mountain scenes. Although reviews in Australia were strong (one critic called it "probably the most beautifully photographed pictorial of the kind that has ever been screened"), the film release in America resulted in a financial loss for Hurley, retitled "The Lost Tribe". The book was printed in a New York edition in 1924. A typed sheet is attached to most photos, titled "Guinea Cannibals Look Like a Lost Tribe of Israel, Captain Frank Hurley, Explorer, Finds". Starting saying "A race of head hunters with Jewish features has been discovered by Capt. Frank Hurley, explorer, 280 miles up the Fly River. he said they might have been mistaken for a lost tribe of Israel." One of the images, not published in the book, titled "A view looking out of the entrance of the great kau ravi kaimabi" is reminiscent of Hurley's striking use of light and dark in his images of Australian troops in France and Flanders during WWI. The nine b&w 8 x 10" Hurley prints are also stamped International Newsreel, 226 William Street New York City on the verso. They include: The dubu daima of the Urama men and its initiated warriors; A view looking out of the entrance of the great kau ravi kaimabi (NOT illustrated in the book); A scene on the sand covered coral reef near the entrance to the Great Fly River, Papua; The Mountuan [sic] men wear the dazzling millinery creations made from parrots feathers surmounted with gorgeous plumes of the Baggian [sic] bird of paradise plumes; The main street of Mailu Village, south east Papua (2 copies); Hamoji; the Great Chief of the Sambio Headhunters is shown here wearing his regal plumes of the Raggiana bird of paradise. (Frontispiece of 'Pearls and Savages".) Photographs well handled, with some cracking and creasing at edges. Two photos have loss at corners. Otherwise bright, early impressions. A fascinating survival of Frank Hurley's publicity push for "Pearls and Savages" in the United States.

        An original artwork. "African Frieze" A finely-drawn pencil sketch, with watercolour wash.

      ND (circa 1920s?) - One of Spare's highly detailed "tribal" works. The sketch depicts a group of men, women, and infants looking towards the viewer. Finely drawn in pencil, with a watercolour wash, on a 5 x 12 inch sheet of card. Not signed. The work has the title 'African Frieze' in pencil on the reverse, in an unknown handwriting. A label on the verso (now covered by backing sheet) in the hand of Spare's friend and patron Frank Letchford (who was the original owner of the work) reads: "Spare (Austin Osman) 1886-1956"African Frieze" Nine semi-nude male and female African tribes-folk, beautifully drawn in pencil with blue washes. Work of his 1920's period." Professionally mounted and framed behind plexiglass in a modern 18.5 x 25.5 inch metallic-painted wooden frame. The work in Fine condition. The frame is unfortunately quite rubbed in a couple of places and missing a few chips: most would consider that it should be replaced, although it is still perfectly serviceable.

        Mind-Energy [Signed] [L'Energie sprituelle; Signee] [Mind Energy] Lectures and Essays

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1920. First UK edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first UK edition, first printing (also being the first edition of this work in English translation) in the Publisher's original blue cloth (expected light rubbing at the spine ends and at the board corners, offsetting to the two front, non-textual, pages), no dust jacket, SIGNED BY HENRI BERGSON on the title page. Bergson was a major, and controversial, French Philosopher and one of "The Select Forty" of the Académie française. He won the 1927 Nobel Prize in Literature in, as the Committee stated: "recognition of his rich and vitalizing ideas and the brilliant skill with which they have been presented." (Interestingly, in 1927, the Committee for Literature determined that none of that year's nominees met the requirements for the Prize in Literature specified by Alfred Nobel. Consequently, and in accordance with its then-applicable rules, the Committee reserved the 1927 Nobel Prize in Literature for one year, and, in 1928, awarded the 1927 Prize to Bergson.) "Mind-Energy", presents a collection of Lectures and Essays chosen by Bergson to illustrate his concept that reality is primarily a spiritual activity (i.e. that, in seeking to understand reality, immediate experience and intuition are more important and useful tools than are rationalism and science). Bergson carefully reviewed and edited this work to ensure that his ideas lost none of their power and clarity in the translation. First edition copies of this collection of Bergson's Lectures and Essays in English Translation, as well as in the original French, are surprisingly scarce. (A review of the Auction language shows only 3 copies of the book coming to auction since 1921, the last of them appearing at auction in 1960.) Signed copies of any of Bergson's works in any language are quite scarce as well, and signed copies of his works in English translation are absolute hen's teeth. A collection of Lectures and Essays from Henri Bergson, one of the 20th Centuries most influential thinkers and winner of the 1927 Nobel Prize in Literature, SIGNED BY HENRI BERGSON. RARE.

        The All-Australia Memorial. A Historical Record of National Effort during the Great War. Australia's Roll of Honour. History, Heroes and Helpers . Introductory Narrative by E. Ashmead-Bartlett

      Melbourne, British-Australasian Publishing Service (Head Office in Australia: 'Whitehall', Bank Place, Melbourne), [1920], revised edition/ [1917] - Quarto, 252, [160], [155]-158 (index) pages with 'over 1,000 Double-Tone Illustrations from Original Photographs, Drawings, Maps, Portraits, etc.' plus the very large double-image folding panoramic frontispiece and 20 single-page plates (including 8 each featuring 4 group portraits) tipped in on card mounts with printed borders, and 4 unnumbered pages (between pages 8 and 9) comprising a dedication poem and portraits of the King, Governor-General Sir Ronald Ferguson, and the Governor of Victoria, Sir Arthur Stanley. This copy does not contain the 9 folding plates usually, but not invariably, found in this volume (2 large folding panoramas, 6 double-page folding plates and a double-page folding map). It does contain the plain card mounts for them, but they were clearly never inserted in this copy. Gilt-decorated purple cloth, all edges gilt; cloth a little marked, flecked and sunned on the spine and (unevenly) on the front cover; light wear to the corners; head of the spine slightly snagged; thumbprint-sized piece snipped from the blank margin of the frontispiece (we have seen this in other copies too); a very good copy (internally in fine condition). Mounted within the decorative border printed on the recto of the stiff card to which the frontispiece is attached, is a four-page ACMF card with a gelatin silver portrait photograph (120 x 90 mm) of Lieutenant William Hill Dunn Stewart, 10th Battalion, pasted inside, facing a printed account of his war service (possibly supplied by the publisher). He embarked on October 1915, and saw action in France and Belgium; he was wounded at Pozieres but 'was with the unit at cessation of hostilities'. This 'edition is necessarily confined to the volunteers from New South Wales and South Australia. Originally framed with special reference to the Gallipoli Campaign [in fact, pages 17-201 are devoted to it], the later deeds of Australia's splendid army in France, Belgium, and in Palestine have been recorded in the present revised edition' brought up to November 1918 (Editor's Preface, page 10). Part II of the book, 'Australia's Fighting Families', contains service details and/or portraits of many thousands of men; the contents vary, usually on a state-by-state basis. This copy contains an even more mixed lot than usual: the first portion, 'Some of Australia's Fighting Families', is a pictorial section (portraits only) for Victoria (16 pages, comprising a title page and pages M101-115); it is followed by a pictorial section (portraits only) for SA (24 pages, numbered [A1]-A24), illustrated biographical sections for SA (Sections J, K and L [16 pages each section]), a pictorial section (portraits only) for NSW (24 pages, numbered [S1]-S24), an illustrated biographical section for NSW, incorrectly labelled SA on the title page (Section O, 24 pages, with a small zero or nought after each page number), and illustrated biographical sections for SA (Sections I and O [16 pages each section]).
