        Irving, Constance] A Child's Book of Hours

      Humphrey Milford, Oxford University Press n.d. (ca. 1920), London - Large folio. Original color pictorial paper covered boards, cloth spine. IN ORIGINAL PRINTED LIGHT BROWN WRAPPER WITH PICTORIAL COVER AND LETTERING IN BLACK AND RED. One of the more cunning and unusual children's books of the early 1900's, this mammoth book was expertly produced with strong linen hinges, and all the pages printed onto very thick cardboard leaves. With such mechanical limitiations to overcome, the publishers succeeded in producing a monumentally pleasing work with brightly colored illustrations in the form of full-page color images, half-page colored line drawings and head and tailpieces, initials and embellishments throughout by Constance Irving. The book is seldom seen in its original wrapper. This copy is extremely fine with the wrapper in very good plus condition, onlys slight fraying and wrinkling. [Attributes: First Edition]

Original dark brown cloth-backed publisher's boards with gilt titling to upper, gilt lettering to paper label on spine. & & Signed by Schoenberg and with "No. 92" in his autograph to foot of title.& & Binding very slightly worn and shaken. Minor staining to lower margin of several leaves. . First Edition in this form. Hilmar: Arnold Schöenberg Gedenkausstellung 1974, no. 229. & & First performed on February 23, 1913 in Vienna at the Musikverein, conducted by Franz Schreker. & & "The cycle of poems Gurresange (Songs of Gurre), written in 1868 by Jens Peter Jacobsen (1847-85) , was based on the old Danish legend of Waldemar, King of Denmark, and his illicit love for the beautiful maiden Tove at the castle of Gurre…"& & "The dominant thematic traits stem from Wagner's world of sound, but the frequent wide intervals in the vocal parts already give a hint of Schoenberg's later manner. Harmonically, there are further refinements of the phenomena of expanded or 'floating' tonality, first produced by Wagner in Tristan… The way in which Schoenberg unfolds the themes of the Gurrelieder, the nature of his thematic work, and the formal layout of the whole work show him already far beyond Wagner's technique of development, and ahead of his own contemporaries…"& & "The Gurrelieder, together with the symphonic poem Pelléas et Mélisande which likewise calls for gigantic forces, represent Schoenberg's farewell to the over-ripe late-Romantic world of sound inaugurated by Liszt and Wagner and carried to its extreme by Mahler, Richard Strauss, and many of their contemporaries…" & & "The work was an extraordinary success with the public, the first triumph for Schoenberg in any of the major music halls of his native city." Reich: Schoenberg, pp. 66-69.

        Fables de la Fontaine.

      Tours Maison Alfred Mame et Fils (c. 1920) - Quarto. 127pp., +(16)ff. One of sixteen copies, with a signed original gouache for one of the sixteen color plates by Neziere, opposite p.63. Highly colored and caricature-like in style, the painting illustrates "L'Ane et le Petit Chien (The Little Dog and the Donkey)." Additionally, each text page is illustrated in black and white. Raymond de la Neziere's work was featured in many of the popular magazines of his era, and it is often viewed as a precursor to French comics. He began working as a book illustrator in 1892. Neziere's illustrations are recognized for their humorous and expressive style, and his characters are often anthropomorphic animals. Unbound, as issued, with panels of pictorial wrapper covers. Protected in a cloth-backed marbled portfolio. Light foxing to a few sheets, else fine. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Mounted Riflemen in Sinai and Palestine. The story of New Zealand's crusade

      Whitcombe and Tombs 1920 - Near fine internally, pgs 175, many illustrations. Original stiffened paper dust jacket very good, has minor marks as shown in photo . Briscoe Moore served as an officer in the Auckland Mounted Rifles and used his experience to record the war effort of the New Zealand Mounted Rifles following the Gallipoli campaign. This record therefore fills a vital area in conjunction with the official records of the three Mounted Rifles regiments of the NZEF. The text covers New Zealand effort in the entire campaign of the Egyptian Expeditionary Force from 1916 to the end of the war. In the words of the author the "primary objective has been a description of things as experienced by the men concerned". This book does great justice to that ideal. Important and extremely rare part of the war record of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force. Particularly rare in such excellent condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Sammlung von 4 (3 eigenh. und 1 ms.) Briefen mit U.

      Wien und Prag, 4.VI.-1.VIII. 1920 bzw. o. D. - Zusammen 10½ SS. (Qu.-)8vo bzw. 4to. Berührende Briefe des österreichischen Nobelpreisträgers für Medizin an seinen Vater, den Zoologen und Mediziner Carl Isidor Cori (1865-1954): "Es tut mir leid, daß Du soviel Unangenehmes und Trauriges erlebst, umsomehr als noch Deine Sorge um mich hinzukommt. Ich habe nun doch Mama einiges mitgeteilt und es ist mir nicht leicht gefallen, aber es mußte einmal geschehen. Ich weiß sehr genau, daß meine Situation immer furchtbarer wird und daß Ihr den Glauben ganz an mich verlieren werdet. Auf dem Weg den ich einmal beschritten habe, kann ich nicht mehr zurück und ich muß die Konsequenzen tragen. Es ist das alles sehr traurig. Ich bin vor eine Alternative gestellt und ich muß Euch glauben, wenn Ihr sagt, daß es nichts anderes, keine Verständigung zwischen uns gibt [.] so muß ich Dir die traurige Mitteilung machen, daß ich mich mit Mama in keiner Weise gefühlsmäßig verbunden fühle, wenn ich noch so tief in mich hineinhorche. Daran sind die vielen Jahre schuld, in denen sie mir nie ein wirklich tiefes Interesse oder Verständnis entgegengebracht hat [.]" (Br. v. 21.VI. 1920). Auch die zwei anderen im Laufe des Sommers verfaßten Briefe thematisieren das schwierige Verhältnis innerhalb der Familie, die u. a. der geplanten Hochzeit des Sohnes mit der Medizinerin Gerty Theresa Radnitz (1896-1957) ablehnend gegenüberstand: "Zeugen sind meine Freunde Edi und Willi. Sonst habe ich niemanden verständigt, da ja eine Heirat, die gegen den Willen der Eltern geschieht, nichts sehr Erfreuliches ist. Ich bin leider nicht in der Verfassung einen langen Brief zu schreiben, kaum fähig meine Angelegenheiten zu führen [.]" (Br. v. 1.VIII. 1920). - 27 Jahre später sollte das Ehepaar gemeinsam den Nobelpreis für die Entdeckung des Verlaufs des katalytischen Glykogen-Stoffwechsels erhalten. - Der schon nach seiner Übersiedlung in die USA maschinschriftlich verfaßte Brief dürfte nach Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs entstanden sein.

Blunden's first trade publication, The Waggoner was issued with the encouragement and assistance of Siegfried Sassoon to whom Blunden had sent some of his work in his capacity as literary editor of the Daily Herald. The previous owner of this copy, Hamilton Fyfe, was a roving correspondent and an innovative editor, who reported from both fronts during the First World War. He was "sent to France in August 1914. Despite the difficulties imposed upon all journalists by the military censorship, within three weeks Fyfe secured a memorable success with his account of the retreat from Mons … In 1915 Fyfe was transferred from the western to the eastern front. He travelled from Petrograd through Galicia to Bucharest. Back in Russia in 1916, he reported Rasputin's murder … " (ODNB). In July 1918 he replaced H.G. Wells at Crewe House, Northcliffe's propaganda HQ.

        An album of designs for textiles and/or paper.

      - c1913-1920's? Large folio cloth [620x430mm]; 24 card leaves with 39 mounted original colour block prints (3 double page). Expected signs of use but nothing drastic; one print removed. Presumably the designer's album of designs, these are proof prints from the blocks, each show the shape where the repeat pattern fits. The first pages are annotated with details of the client ('Achete a George. 9 Rue St Fiacre Paris' - in earlier decades this was the home of a calico manufacturer, which makes sense, and now houses a public relations firm and Ella Bache, which is neither here nor there) and the engraver (Gillet, sometimes in concert with someone else); the details dwindle as the album proceeds until we reach the large and dramatic geometric design in black and white which was "vendu a Mrs Bosset". Dating these designs to 1913 would seem foolish but for the first few leaves being dated 1913 in the top corner; two or three are dull, traditional floral patterns but the rest, while by no means radical avant garde, would sit more happily in the next decade or two - some are really quite stylish. The theme is floral, or at least botanical although one is based on a Chinese cloud pattern; several are oriental in style or inspiration and one is a very stylish piece of Japanese abstraction. I suspect this to be the work of a Japanese designer in Paris, partly because it most recently came from Tokyo and partly because of the modern simplicity of several designs.

        Representatives of the Law.

      London: N.p., 1920. - Forty-Eight Original Kyd Watercolors"The Law is an Ass"But the Artwork is SublimeKYD, (pseudonym of Joseph Clayton Clarke) artist. [DICKENS, Charles]. Representatives of the Law. (Ranging from the Bench to the Broker’s man), extracted from the Works of Dickens, and portrayed by "Kyd" in a series of 48 Character Studies drawn in colours. London: ca. 1920.Calligraphic title page in an orange border and with a judge’s head at the top, calligraphic list of plates in a green border, and forty-eight original watercolors by Kyd.All loose sheets, each measuring 10 9/16 x 7 7/8 inches and with the paintings within fine line borders comprising a panel measuring 7 x 4 1/2 inches. Each is a painting of a legal character from one of Dickens many works. The name of the character is in pen at the top left hand corner of the image space and the title of the book in which the character is found is located at the lower right hand corner.Each painting is signed by Kyd and depicts forty-eight judges, lawyers, solicitors, clerks, police, and prison turnkeys found in Dickens's novels, including Mr. Jaggers (Great Expectations); Mr. Perker (Pickwick Papers); Mr. Blathers (Oliver Twist); Uriah Heep (David Copperfield); Mr. Jinks (Pickwick Papers); Mr. Mallard (Pickwick Papers); Serjeant Buzfuz (Pickwick Papers); Mr. Chuckster (Old Curiosity Shop); Mr. Guppy (Bleak House); Mr. Tulkinghorn (Bleak House); and many others, not the least of whom is Sampson Brass ((Old Curiosity Shop), "an attorney of no very good repute with a cringing manner, whose blandest smiles were so extremely forbidding that to have had his company under the least repulsive circumstances one would have wished him to scowl" - a character we strenuously assert to have no connection whatsoever in fiction or in life to our Brass family.Chemised in burgundy moire silk and housed in a full red morocco pull-off case with gilt spine lettering. A singular collection and fine.Dickens was intimately knowledgeable about the legal world. He began his professional life as a law clerk and had ambition to pursue the law as a career. As a result, "Charles Dickens was preeminently the novelist of the law, and his lawyers have a hold upon the public imagination far surpassing that of any other author" (Fyfe, Charles Dickens and the Law, p.7)."Dickens used a repeated and consistent pattern in presenting lawyers in his works Generally, the lawyers have been treated simply as parts of other investigations, or as objects of Dickens' contempt. [In] Robert D. Neely's The Lawyers of Dickens and Their Clerks, [Neely] express[es] the opinion that Dickens had a disdain for lawyers. 'One of the most marked prejudices was his dislike of lawyers, and all that pertained to the machinery of government.' This hatred is explained and justified in various ways. Philip Collins in Dickens and Crime states that the author was following a literary tradition in treating the lawyers vituperatively. In Charles Dickens: His Tragedy and Triumph Edgar Johnson sees Dickens' treatment of lawyers as one more aspect of his hatred of business. And Humphrey House in The Dickens World views the lawyer similarly to Johnson; House states that the lawyer has only a business, professional approach to people and to life. Thus, the lawyers are dismissed " (Baughman, Charles Dickens and His Lawyers. ALSA Forum Volume 6, Number Number 2 [1982]). "The one great principle of the English law is, to make business for itself. There is no other principle distinctly, certainly, and consistently maintained through all its narrow turnings." (Bleak House)"'If the law supposes that,' said Mr. Bumble, squeezing his hat emphatically in both hands, 'the law is an ass - an idiot. If that's the eye of the law, the law is a bachelor; and the worst I wish the law is, that his eye may be opened by experience'" (Oliver Twist)."What lawsuits grow out of the graves of rich men, every day; sowing perjury, hatred, and lies among near kindred, where there should be

        IL CONVEGNO - 1920-1940 rivista di letteratura ed arte - TUTTO IL PUBBLICATO, Milano, Il convegno editoriale, 1920

      - cm. 17,1 x 24,5, brossura, alcuni dorsi stanchi, interni tutti in ottime condizioni, pagine variabili. Tutta la collezione è a fasc. sciolti, in buone condizioni. Alla fine di ogni annata c'è un indice assai utile degli scritti, autori ed argomenti . L'ultimo numero 11-12 del febbraio 1940 è L'INDICE SISTEMATICO DEGLI ARTICOLI, SPETTACOLI, CONCERTI E MANIFESTAZIONI, con riassunto di tutti gli autori, suddivisi per le materie trattate (quasi unico nel suo genere) Il direttore ENZO FERRIERI, (giornalista, regista e critico teatrale, ed attivo promotore di iniziative culturali, direttore di compagnie teatrali, lavorò anche presso la Radio, per molti versi un vero e proprio pioniere specialmente nel ramo spettacolo) sintetizza la linea della rivista sul num. 1-2 del 1924 e poi sull'ultimo numero del 1940 c'è il suo sofferto commiato. Tra i numeri speciali più significativi ed interessanti (sono tutti presenti in questa collezione) vanno evidenziati : Fasc. 1, 4, 5 (1920) James Joyce "Esuli" versione di Linati. Fasc. 7 (1921) Novella "Loulou" di Thomas Mann. Fasc. 7-8 (1923) interamente dedicato a MANZONI. Fasc. 4-5 (1924) Carlo Carr? La XIV Esp. Biennale di Venezia Fasc. 6-7 (1924) James Joyce "Araby" Fasc. 1 (1926) G. De Benedetti "Cinema Liberty" Fasc. 5-6 (1926) Dedicato a Jens Peter Jacobsen Fasc. 7 (1927) Thomas Mann " Disordine e dolore precoce" Fasc. 10 (1927) "Omaggio a Rainer Maria Rilke" Fasc. 4-5 (1928) "Commemorazione di Proust" di Giacomo Debenedetti Fasc. 8 (1928) parzialmente dedicato a Franz Kafka Fasc. 11-12 (1928) "Venti ore con Manzoni" inedito di N. Tommaseo Fasc. 1-2 (1929) "Omaggio a Svevo "scritti di G. Debenedetti e Linati. Fasc. 3 (1929) Thomas Mann "Discorso intorno a Lessing" Fasc. 6 e 7-8 (1931) "La radio come forza creativa" e "Inchiesta sulla radio" Queste iniziative furono vere e proprie azioni pionieristiche sulla radio. Fasc. 1-2 (1933) Carteggio inedito tra C. Dossi e G. P. Lucini (1902-1907) La rivista si occupò di letteratura ed arti , dando ampio spazio allo "spettacolo" con radio, teatro, cinema, e con il circolo "Il Convegno" fondato nel 1922 e chiuso nel 1935 , collegato alla rivista e che aveva la sede a Palazzo Gallarati Scotti di Milano, con sale per concerti, conferenze e spettacoli teatrali, divenne un autorevole punto di riferimento ed il centro della cultura lombarda dell'epoca. Vanno riconosciuti a Ferrieri ed alla sua rivista i meriti di avere portato all'attenzione generale alcuni grandi autori stranieri (James Joyce, T. Mann, Kafka, Rainer Maria Rilke ed altri) traducendo vari loro testi. Così come avere fatto eco ai maggiori e grandi autori italiani - anche di diverse provenienze culturali e geografiche - pubblicando importanti e numerosi loro scritti : Anceschi, Angelini, Angioletti, Bacchelli, Baldini, A. Benedetti, Bontempelli, A.G. Bragaglia, Brancati V., Buzzati Dino, Cajumi, Carlo Carr? , Comisso, Benedetto Croce, Giacomo Debenedetti, Silvio D'Amico, G. De Chirico, G. Ferrata, G.
