        Original Art: "De Ox and De Frog",

      n.p. n.d., 1920's, n.p. - An original pen and ink sketch by Edward Winsor Kemble produced for "The Youth's Companion", an early 20th century juvenile journal. The sketch 6½ by 8½ inches and with printer's marks along the bottom. Titled in pencil: "De Ox and de Frog".

The Tale of the Ox and the Frog appears in AEsop, also in La Fontaine and possibly in Uncle Ned's Old Tales Retold. It describes a mother frog inflating herself to the point of bursting (and in some versions beyond that point) as she imitates the size of an ox. And indeed in Kemble's sketch we se a large chested female frog standing over a mushroom table addressing two frog-children. Cropped closely on the sides just touching the image else this is in very nice condition. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Fine original portrait drawing by Benedikt Dolbin (1883-1971), titled by the artist "Franz Lehar (drawn from life)" and signed by Dolbin just below the portrait

      [ca 1920], [Vienna] - "[Lehar] was the leading operetta composer of the 20th century, being primarily responsible for giving the genre renewed vitality. His most successful operetta, Die lustige Witwe, has established a lasting place in the opera as well as the operetta repertory and, along with Offenbach and Johann Strauss II, Lehár has remained one of the most popular composers of light music." Andrew Lamb in Grove onlineDolbin (pseud. Fred Pollack) was born in Vienna and studied there. Trained as an engineer, he subsequently studied musical composition with Arnold Schoenberg and became a member of the Viennese group "Die Bewegung." He commenced drawing portraits of leading artistic personalities from ca. 1917 onwards for Viennese newspapers and journals. Because of his Jewish origins, Dolbin's work was banned in Austria in 1935, at which time he emigrated to the United States. The composer is depicted in profile, wearing collar and tie. Executed in pen and ink and black chalk on a light yellow background wash. 343 x 250 mm.

        ELEONORA DUSE: Fine head and shoulders portrait photograph of the actress, with the photographer's label on verso. Gelatin silver print on smooth paper

      [New York?], ca. 1920. 13 x 10 inches; framed. . One corner chipped, one-inch tear without loss at lower margin, else fine. On the verso is the photographer's printed label reading "ARNOLD GENTHE / 41 East 49th Street / New York City". Beaton and Buckland, The Magic Image, p. 139 (illustrating this photograph) . A strong, evocative image of the near-legendary Italian actress, shown in profile toward the end of her life. Arnold Genthe (1869-1942) was born in Germany and came to San Francisco in 1895 as tutor for the son of a German Baron. He subsequently worked there as a professional photographer before moving to New York in 1911; he photographed the most famous people during a career that spanned four decades. "Many of [Genthe's portraits] are...period pieces, but immutable are his portraits of Duse and Garbo." (Beaton and Buckland). In "Arnold Genthe 1869-1942" a catalogue of an exhibition of his work held in 1975 at the Staten Island (NY) Museum, Dorothy Wilcock Neumeyer writes concerning this photograph (which is illustrated): "Genthe once said that one of his greatest pictures was of Eleonora Duse, made on her farewell visit to the United States...he telephoned Duse and told her that he would like to photograph her when she reached New York. Duse said 'You do not want to photograph an old lady. Besides, I am not sure I will be in New York.' Genthe said, 'I will go to you in Pittsburgh. As for being old, you can never change the exquisite bone structure of your lovely face.' He went to Pittsburgh and took this great photograph. No make-up, the white hair, worn in the simple manner, a face poignant with beauty even more compelling than in her earlier years. Duse wept when she saw this picture." ONE OF GENTHE'S FINEST WORKS

        IN GREECE: JOURNEYS BY MOUNTAIN AND VALLEY. With a preface by Théophile Homolle; translated from the French by Charles Frederic Hardy.

      Éditions d'Art F. Boissonas, Geneva 1920 - Folio, iv, 5-133 pp., with 40 full-page photogravure plates with printed tissue guards, and numerous photogravures in text. Decorative borders and devices in color, printed on handmade paper. Printed wrappers, titled in gilt, with an orange inset medallion of Pegasus on the front cover. New spine applied, modest stain on rear wrapper and faint stain to top corner Over all certainly very good, with the photogravures beautifully rendered. Fred Boissonnas (1858 - 1946) was from an influential family of photographers, initially situated in Geneva. His accomplishments in photography enabled him to travel widely and often, and from these travels he produced several books, including works on Greece and Egypt. His Greek images totaled over 7000 photographs made with large format cameras, and are inclusive of historical architectural remains, and vistas and landscapes. In the early 20th century he founded the publishing firm of Boissonnas S.A., which produced several exquisite limited editions illustrated with hand-pulled photogravure plates, elegant design and letterpress of several color inks. In 1910 he made EN GRÈCE PAR MONTS ET PAR VAUX from his enormous archive of Greek negatives. That lavish large folio was limited to 230 numbered copies printed on handmade paper; in 1936 he also issued a second edition in a smaller folio format with a larger limitation. This is the first edition published in English, and has a limitation of 300 numbered copies. [Attributes: First Edition]

Teschemacher") in brown leather label affixed to front board; about 16 x 20 inches; contains mock-ups, preliminary and finished illustrations and designs for houses, advertisements, bookplates, letterheads, calendars, announcements, and more -- even hand-painted decorative motifs in Art Nouveau-style. Various sizes, on paper, heavy cardstock, and onionskin; and in ink, pencil, or full-color painting. Some duplicates, but well over 100 distinct designs. Highlights include full-color paintings for Tiergarten Nuremberg (a tiger's face), Aerozon Fabrik, women's swimwear; and ink drawings for Minimax ("Das Schönste Geschenk!"), Moton (a pesticide), Rapsch, Kriegsbund der Offizierfrauen. Numerous pencil drawings range from hastily brain-stormed sketches, to typographic experiments, and detailed streetscapes and scenes.

Erich Teschemacher was an architect, painter, poster artist, and graphic designer, educated at Unterrichtsanstalt des Kunstgewerbemuseums in Berlin. He was married to the commercial artist Marga Renner, and echoes of her resonate in this collection as well: a notebook of 10 embroidery designs in pencil and color, and two different exhibition announcments for a show of modern residential interiors.

      London: William Heinemann,, 1920. The Story of Shackleton&#39;s Last Expedition 1914&#150;1917. Octavo. Original dark blue cloth, spine and front board lettered in silver, large block of Endurance stuck in the ice to front board in silver, publisher&#39;s device to rear board in blind, top edge dark blue. With a small collection of articles relating to Shackleton, and a photographic postcard loosely inserted. Colour frontispiece and 87 half-tone plates, folding map at the rear. Some rubbing to the tips and spine ends, small square of paper pasted to the front free endpaper below inscription, occasional very minor foxing. An excellent copy. First edition, fourth impression of Shackleton&#39;s account of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition (issued four months after the first impression). Inscribed on the front free endpaper by Shackleton: "To G. W. A. Hutchison with grateful thanks for kindnesses. From Ernest Shackleton. January 1921." At this time he was on the lecture circuit, and began planning what would eventually become the Shackleton&#150;Rowett Expedition, on which he faced his untimely death just barely a year later. The leaflet for his memorial fund is loosely laid in. This is a lovely copy of Shackleton&#39;s account of the infamous Endurance Expedition. In 1914, Shackleton and a 28-man crew had set out on the Endurance in the hope to be the first to cross the Antarctic continent &#150; an 1800 miles journey, sea to sea. However, in January 1915, due to exceptionally cold and icy conditions, the Endurance was trapped in ice. Ten months later, the pressure of the ice crushed the ship which sank, leaving Shackleton stranded some 1,600 km from any human activity. "Shackleton now showed his supreme qualities of leadership. With five companions he made a voyage of 800 miles in a 22-foot boat through some of the stormiest seas in the world, crossed the unknown lofty interior of South Georgia, and reached a Norwegian whaling station on the north coast. After three attempts, Shackleton succeeded (30 August 1916) in rescuing the rest of the Endurance party and bringing them to South America" (ODNB). Amazingly, all members of the Endurance party survived the ordeal.
