Strauss warns Bodky that life is expensive in Garmisch and offers an alternative: "If your financial means do not permit you to travel, I would be quite willing... to give you some lessons when I will be in Berlin again in the second half of January 1921. The same goes for Stiebitz or Solomon." Slightly worn; creased at folds; envelope browned.. "[Strauss] emerged soon after the deaths of Wagner and Brahms as the most important living German composer. During an artistic career which spanned nearly eight decades, he composed in virtually all musical genres, but became best known for his tone poems (composed during the closing years of the 19th century) and his operas (from the early decades of the 20th)." Bryan Gilliam and Charles Youmans in Grove online Bodky studied with Dohnanyi, Juon, Kahn and others at the Musikhochschule in Berlin, going on to win a fellowship from the Prussian government that enabled him to continue piano studies with Busoni and composition with Strauss. His compositions include a piano concerto, a chamber symphony, and chamber music, all apparently unpublished. He taught at the Longy School of Music in Boston and at Brandeis University.

        ALADDIN AND HIS WONDERFUL LAMP IN RHYME

      Nisbet [], 1920. Nisbet [], 1920. First edition, Edition de Luxe, in large format, printed on beautiful handmade paper. Number 51 of only 250 copies, numbered and signed by the artist. Large quarto, 335mm x 265mm. Full white buckram with gilt embossed lettering and illustration. Top edge is gilt and others are untrimmed. In the very rare pictorial dustwrapper. A fine book in a very good dustwrapper, which has a couple of chips to the spine ends. From endpaper to endpaper each page is decorated with black and white drawings, in a striking art nouveau style. There are twelve colour plates mounted beneath captioned tissue guards, all are in perfect condition. The plates are vibrant and striking. This book is a wonderful co-operation of Ransome telling the story of Aladdin and His Lamp in rhyme and beautiful decorations by Yorkshire artist, Thomas Mackenzie. In a letter in late 1919 Mackenzie laments problems with the production of this Edition-de-Luxe saying that the sheets were not dry enough to be bound up, because of "the continuous damp weather and the hand made paper it is printed on". As a result the Deluxe edition did not go on sale until sometime in 1920 (the book was aimed at the Christmas gift market of 1919). This copy has two pieces of tissue loosely inserted between pages of text, presumably to blot any damp ink, one of which has heavy impressions of the text and decoration. He also comments "there are mistakes in it due to inexperience and immaturity which I hope you will close your eyes to."

        Autograph textual manuscript signed ("Ch-M Widor") relative to the Conservatoire Franco-Americain de Fontainebleau

      . Octavo. 2-1/2 pages of a bifolium. In black ink. Signed at conclusion and dated Paris, December 16, 1920. On letterhead with "Academie des Beaux- Arts" printed at upper left of first page. Together with autograph envelope. Widor offers detailed commentary on the Fontainbleau school, including mention of the noted American conductor and music educator Walter Damrosch's participation in its establishment. Creased and slightly split at folds; old tape repair to central creased not affecting text.. A very interesting document relative to Franco-American cooperation during the World War I era, both with regard to music in particular and to the broader socio-political context in general. "From 1914 [Widor] devoted a great deal of his energies to his post as permanent secretary to the Academie des Beaux-Arts, establishing pockets of French culture in London and Madrid, and contributing moral support to the war effort. He had thus achieved his personal ambition of full integration into the heart of his country's intellectual system, but at the cost of being regarded as a pillar of an antiquated establishment by the radical young postwar generation. Ultimately his reputation lies in his consummate mastery of the organ, which provided the greatest fulfilment of his compositional genius." Felix Raugel and Andrew Thomson in Grove online

        Wilshire Crest

      Los Angeles.: David Barry & Co., No date. Ca. 1920.. Los Angeles.: David Barry & Co.. No date. Ca. 1920.. Blueline plat map, 29 x 23 3/4 inches on sheet size 31 1/2 x 26 inches, folded to 8 1/2 x 4 inches. Few soft creases, very good condition. A map of the up-market Wilshire Crest development in its very early stages ("Map not yet recorded 1" = 100&#39;" is noted at the lower edge of the map). The development lies between Wilshire Boulevard at north and Country Club Drive (Olympic Blvd.) at south with lots fronting on Hudson Blvd. at the western edge and Rimpau Blvd. at the eastern edge. On the outside panel of the verso is the penciled note: "Please hand this to Mr. Woodruff first time he calls. H.C." (Harry Chandler?) with the pencil identification of the map "Wilshire Crest." An article at latimes.com identifies Wilshire Crest as becoming South Brookside, which was later shortened to Brookside. However, on their web site, the Windsor Square - Hancock Park Historical Society writes: "Brookside, first known as Windsor Crest, was carved out of the original Rancho Las Cienegas (Ranch of the Marshland), owned by Mexican native Don Francisco Avila.... The neighborhood got going in 1921, when the Rimpau Estate Company began to sell home sites to L.A.&#39;s wealthiest families." The prices of the lots on the David Barry & Co. map appear in pencil; south of Eighth Street the lots were in the $2500 to $4600 range, with a number ranging between $6000 and $11000. Estate-sized tracts were valued at up to $20,000. The Directory of Brokers and Salesmen (1922) shows Barry as having branch offices at Wilshire and Rimpau and Rimpau and Country Club Drive, presumably established to facilitate the marketing of Wilshire Crest. As a footnote: text on a January 6, 1924 David Barry real estate ad in the Los Angeles Times states: "The history of our 18 other west-side tracts has without exception been one of steadily increased values." A most interesting map of an "in-progress" sub-division in the booming LA real estate market of the 20s. No record of the map in WorldCat. .

        Waverley Book Company Collection of Tobias Smollett Works

      London -The Waverley Book Company Ltd, 1920. London -The Waverley Book Company Ltd, 1920 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A uniformly bound collection of fictional works from Tobias Smollett, charmingly illustrated throughout. Containing Adventures of Peregrine Pickle in two volumes, The History and Adventures of an Atom, and The Expedition of Humphry Clinker. Tobias George Smollett was a Scottish poet and author. He was best known for his picaresque novels, such as The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle, which influenced later novelists such as Charles Dickens. The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle is the story of the fortunes and misfortunes of the egotistical dandy Peregrine Pickle, and it provides a comic and caustic portrayal of 18th century European society. George Orwell, writing in Tribune in 1944, praised Smollett&#39;s &#39;masterpieces&#39;, Roderick Random and Peregrine Pickle. Peregrine devotes himself for months at a time to the elaborate and horribly cruel practical jokes in which the eighteenth century delighted. When, for instance, an unfortunate English painter is thrown into the Bastille for some trifling offence and is about to be released, Peregrine and his friends, playing on his ignorance of the language , let him think he has been sentenced to be broken on a wheel. A little later they tell him that his punishment has been commuted to castration. Why are these petty rogueries worth reading about In the first place because they are funny - Secondly, by simply ruling out good motives and showing no respect whatever for human dignity, Smollett often attains a truthfulness that more serious novelists have missed. Each work is complete within itself, with Adventures of Peregrine Pickle complete in two volumes. Although, this set is four volumes of the original six volumes published in The Waverley Book Company series. Condition: All volumes are in their original red cloth bindings with gilt detailing to the spines. Externally, all volumes are sound, with only some light rubbing and minor marks. Front hinge to Peregrine Pickle volume one is slightly strained. Internally, all volumes are firmly bound and bright, although with some instances of light foxing to The History and Adventures of an Atom. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        This Side of Paradise

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1920. New York: Charles Scribner&#39;s Sons, 1920 First edition, first printing. One of 3,000 copies. Publisher&#39;s green B cloth binding, front board lettering stamped in blind, spine lettering stamped in gilt. Very good, with some minor fraying to the spine ends, spine lightly dimmed, a few light spots to the otherwise bright and clean boards, bright and fresh interior. Overall, a clean and attractive copy. In a facsimile dust jacket after the original designed by W. E. Hill, with an illustration of a man and woman in evening dress against an orange background. Bruccoli A5.I.a. This Side of Paradise is Fitzgerald&#39;s first novel, based on the author&#39;s undergraduate experience at Princeton University and courting of his future wife Zelda Sayre. In this debut novel, Fitzgerald explores the theme of the "Lost Generation," or the generation whose adolescence coincided with World War I and who faced the radically different post-war world with feelings of dejection and a jaded sense of morality. He would continue to explore this theme in later novels, including The Beautiful and Damned (1922) and The Great Gatsby (1925). The layout of the text, which is divided into three sections: "Book One: The Romantic Egoist," "May, 1917 - January, 1919," and "Book Two: The Education of a Personage," emphasizes the major cultural shift that occurred after WWI. The story features Amory Blaine, a young Princeton student with a penchant for literature and weakness for beautiful debutantes, who leaves his Midwestern home to study at Princeton and travels overseas during the war after being recruited for the American armed services. The novel leaves Blaine feeling rather depressed, rejected by both women he was interested in and crestfallen at the death of his mentor, which he expresses with the notable last line: "I know myself, but that is all." While the events and characters of the novel are based on Fitzgerald&#39;s own life, the plot is also an allegory for the Lost Generation&#39;s worldview in the wake of WWI. W. E. Hill&#39;s dust jacket design features models who resemble F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, emphasizing the autobiographical nature of the text and solidifying the couple as the poster children for their generation.. Illus. by Hill, William Ely. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.
