        PENALTY, THE (1920)

      USA 1920 - Vintage original 11 x 14" (28 x 35 cm.) lobby card, USA. Lon Chaney, Doris Pawn, Jim Mason, Milton Ross, Ethel Grey Terry, Kenneth Harlan, Claire Adams, dir: Wallace Worsley; Goldwyn. A fascinating early Lon Chaney crime horror thriller! He plays Blizzard, who as a child had his legs unnecessarily amputated after an accident. He grows up to be vicious criminal and mob leader of San Francisco's underworld, seeking revenge on the surgeon who left him deformed. Chaney went through agony for this role, having his legs tied back so as he "walked" on his knee caps, and was only able to perform like this for 10 minutes at a time. A wonderfully atmospheric production made this a winning thriller. Chaney is present in this card with Doris Pawn. There is a playdate written in blue pencil at bottom, otherwise very nice condition, NEAR FINE.

Zille also produced a few series of erotic drawings for limited, private circulation, including Zwanglose Geschichten und Bilder (Gurlitt, 1919), Die Landpartie (1920) and Hurengespräche (privately printed in 1921 under the pseudonym W. Pfeifer, with a false date of 1913). Zille was prosecuted for obscenity for his 1925 lithograph Modellpause in the periodical Simplicissimus, (depicting 8 models in various stages of undress).Die Landpartie, "a little humoresque", produced by ZIlle himself, demonstrates his eye for ordinary life and his erotic flair. Rosenbach identifies two issues in the first edition of 100 copies, issue A on white Werkdruckpapier, with lithographic limitation statement on the verso of the first leaf and a ruled square for numbering; and issue B (as here), on yellowish laid paper stock (auf gelblichem, geripptem Bütten), with a different formulation of the limitation statement, entirely in the artist's hand, concluding with these words: "Dieses Exemplar hat die Nummer 92 und is von mir koloriert, H. Zille". Rosenbach states that copies of issue A numbered higher than 58 are not known (with one exception, a copy of issue B numbered 20); other known copies of issue B are numbered 78 to 99. The present copy was sold at auction in 1954 and is noted by Rosenbach; since then it has been in an American private collection.Rare and unusual.

        The Works of Charles Dickens (National Library Edition) 20 vols

      Bigelow, Brown & Co., Inc, New York 1920 - A sharp, nearly Fine set of Dickens' complete works in 20 volumes. Each volume bound in red three quarter leather over cloth. Spines with five raised bands, ruled in gilt, top-edge of page block gilt. All volumes clean and sound with light wear to the corners, but likely never read.Charles Dickens is considered one of the greatest novelists of the English language (critic Harold Bloom considers him one of the greatest writers in the history of the Western World). He was easily the most widely read and popular writer of his own era and remains so today - for Dickens has never been out of print and his works have been adapted into over 200 films or television series as well as countless stage dramas. He is an iconic figure in England as well, appearing on the 10 pound note and being voted one of the "100 Greatest Britons" of all time in a 2002 BBC poll.Dickens read widely in his youth, including many picaresque works that would influence his later writing. However, his father's financial difficulties soon landed the family in debtors prison, and Dickens was forced to work long days as a child in a boot blacking factory in order to cover the family's finances. It's thought that this experience is what drove Dickens to become an advocate for social reform, a subject he often tackles in his novels. Dickens soon became a journalist and the success of his first book - Sketches By Boz, would set him on his writing career that would include such masterpieces as A Christmas Carol, Great Expectations, A Tale of Two Cities, and David Copperfield.Dickens style is noted for its incredible skill with caricature and satire - indeed, one usually need only mutter the name of a character of his to conjure up a vision of that character's entire self. A master storyteller, his work often depicted the less savory and neglected side of England as well. The number of writers who respect or has been influenced by him is countless, and include such luminaries as Tolstoy, Orwell, and Conrad. Near Fine.
