Clark, and 1 Roberts photograph of the South Africa Union Buildings. All are neatly mounted with transparent corners onto 19 cardstock leaves. The photographs vary in size from 2.5"x4.25" to 8"x6". Housed in a string-tied album of snake-skin-patterned cloth boards, 9"x12.5". Inside the cover is the ownership inscription, "Fraser-Mackenzie, 1922." Featuring unique views of colonial Zimbabwe and the Shona people, this album records the farming practices and achievements of Dick and Jack Fraser-Mackenzie, Scottish cousins who emigrated to Mashonaland in 1920 and became pioneer farmers throughout Southern Rhodesia. The hard labor of African workers is well-illustrated by these images, as are the good relations with local Chiefs. Plowing and cultivating were done by hand; water for cattle was carried by Africans on their heads; acres of corn were harvested without machines; &c. Captioned images include: Dick in a field; Picnic party near Chiwe; Car stuck on way to Allangrange; Bob & Dick at a picnic; Car stuck on way to Lone Cow; Dick's water cart; Dick's mealies loading up; Chief bringing Bob a goat; Dick's ploughman; Chief at Lone Cow; Mealie crusher at Dick's; Water carrier at Dick's; &c.

        Romance of the Greys

      London.: Decoy Press.. First Edition.. 1920.. Folio, 17.5 x 12 inches; eleven mounted color plates after works by Christopher Clark, R.I. At rear, six pp. of advertising touting "The 'Greys,' the big cigarette with the choice flavor"; these adverts feature black and white illustrations (one depicts the R-34 airship) several of which are by Christopher Clark. Front and rear covers abraded along top edge. Toning and very light buckling to endpapers. Printed dedication on paste-down title on front cover reads: "For Colonel W.E.R. Kelly. With the Compliments of Major Drapkin & Co." The Introduction to the volume identifies its intent: to trace the history of the "Scots Greys" in word and picture. "The Second Royal North British Dragoons (the 'Scots Greys') have a record of nearly two hundred and fifty years' distinguished service... Every regiment has its romance--the romance of its history, traditions, corporate spirit. These memories of the glorious past help to form its fighting spirit, and are rightly treasured by those whose work it is to make the living regiment worthy of its honorable parentage." The narrative traces the Dragoons from 1678 through the First World War. Major Drapkin & Company were the manufacturers of Greys cigarettes. "Romance of the Greys" is an uncommon publication, listed as being held by only one WorldCat library. The volume, in good condition, is beautifully illustrated; contents bright and clean. .

      1920 1920 - Pinsel in Schwarz, über Bleistift, mit schwarzer Tuschlinie umrandet, auf Malkarton, links unten signiert „Thea Schleusner" sowie bezeichnet und datiert „Grabgesang – Aquarell – 1920" und als „preisgekrönt" ausgewiesen. 20,8:30 cm. Verso Pinselproben. Provenienz: Slg. Helmut Goedeckemeyer, Petterweil (hier noch die Adresse von Frankfurt a.M., Rödelheim, März 1921). Vermutlich Entwurf für einen Holzschnitt. Die auch als Bildhauerin und Schriftstellerin tätige Malerin und Radiererin Thea Schleusner, Tochter des Archidiakons der Wittenberger Stadtkirche Georg Schleusner, beschloß im Alter von 19 Jahren Malerin zu werden. Sie ging 1897 nach Berlin, wo sie Meisterschülerin von C. Stoeving (1863-1939), F. Skarbina (1849-1910) und R. Lepsius (1857-1922) wurde. Anschließend zog sie nach Paris, wo sie an der Académie Colarossi u.a. bei R.F.X. Prinet (1861-1946) und an der Académie von E. Carrière (1849-1906) studierte. Darüber hinaus absolvierte sie eine Ausbildung bei dem schwedischen Bildhauer C. Milles (1875-1955). Seit 1910 knüpfte sie in Paris Kontakte zu André Gide, A. Rodin (1840-1917) und Rainer Maria Rilke – sie lebten ebenfalls im Kloster Sacré Coeur. Beteiligungen an Ausstellungen der „Indépendants" und am Pariser Herbstsalon, auch in London, Stockholm und Berlin. Bereits 1910 erwarb das Musée d Orsay ein Bild der Künstlerin. 1910-1912 weilte sie in England, wo sie Porträtaufträge hatte und Bühnenbilder für das Theater schuf. 1914 kehrte sie endgültig nach Berlin zurück, wo ihr Atelier bald zum künstlerischen Treffpunkt wurde. Hier porträtierte sie Albert Einstein, Friedrich Nietzsche, Emil Nolde und seine Frau sowie Ricarda Huch. Studienreisen nach Griechenland, Spanien, Nordafrika, Rumänien und Jugoslawien sowie längere Aufenthalte 1920 in Schweden und 1938-1941 auf Ceylon folgten. Ab den 1920er Jahren beschäftigte sie sich auch schriftstellerisch und schrieb Reiseberichte. Während des Zweiten Weltkrieges ging durch Bombardierungen ein Großteil ihres Werkes verloren. Zahlreiche Museen und Sammlungen besitzen Werke der Künstlerin, so die Akademie der Wissenschaften Berlin, die Kunsthalle Kiel, der Louvre Paris, die Stadt Berlin, das Nietzsche-Archiv in Weimar und das Heimatmuseum Wittenberg.

        The Story of Opal The Journal of an Understanding Heart

      Atlantic Monthly Press, Boston, MA 1920 - B&W Illustrations; Limited to 650 copies - this is book number 521. The book is in Very Good+ condition and was possibly issued without a dust jacket for this edition. The book and its contents are in mostly clean, bright condition. The covers have dark green paper covered boards and a paper vellum spine with a paper spine label. The spine ends and corners of the book covers have some beginning bumping and rubbing. The text pages are clean and bright. There is some beginning foxing to the endpapers. The limited edition of this book is quite scarce. The history of this book, and of the author herself is a strange one - the author was a noted amateur naturalist from a very young age and considered a child prodigy by many. This book however, is a compilation of her journals, purportedly written as a child in diaries written in phonetic spelling, which were later ripped up and reassembled. Opal believed (or conned people into believing, depending on who you believe) that she was the daughter of Henri, Prince of Orléans. This book deals both with her rather harsh upbringing and the love and interest Opal had for nature of all sorts. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
