        Youth and the Bright Medusa

      New York: Knopf, 1920. First edition. The rare limited issue, one of 35 unnumbered copies issued with all edges untrimmed, signed in full "Willa Sibert Cather" on the front free endpaper. Original green cloth, spine has small areas of spotting where the green pigment is lost; number in ink on upper cover; ownership signature at the bottom of the front endpaper, (James R. Messenger, Emmy Award-winning documentary film maker, and sometime contributor to the Willa Cather Newsletter). A very good copy preserved in a clamshell box. As these copies are taller than the trade issue, and special binding cases had to be made, it's unlikely they were issued in dust jacket. Youth and the Bright Medusa was the first of Cather's books to be published by Knopf, who would remain her publisher thereafter.

However, as befitsts its position as ‘peut-être le document dadaïste le plus important de cette époque’ (Sanouillet’s claim; my emphasis), the text contains neither plot, nor any discernible sense of narrative progression. It directs itself towards the Dadaistic levelling of all socially constructed value systems via a dual strategy of inverting common sense and equating the unequal.'

        Spaziergänger. Lithographie.

       1920. Signiert \"R. Schlichter\". Im Stein abermals signiert \"R. Schlichter\". Breitrandiger Druck auf Velin. 21 x 22,5 cm. Papier: 40,9 x 31 cm. Söhn HDO 72708-10. Eines 125 Exemplaren. Blatt 10 aus: Die Schaffenden, II. Jahrgang, 4. Mappe, 1920. Mit dem Trockenstempel \"Die Schaffenden\". - Der deutsche Künstler Rudolf Schlichter gilt als einer der wichtigsten Vertreter der Neuen Sachlichkeit. Schlichter studierte an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Stuttgart und an der Kunstakademie in Karlsruhe, u. a. bei Wilhelm Trübner und Hans Thoma. Schlichter unternahm mehrfach Studienreisen nach Italien und Frankreich und bekam durch seinen Malerkollegen Julius Kasper Kontakt zur Unterwelt. In Karlsruhe gehörte er zu den Mitbegründern der Gruppe Rih, übersiedelte dann nach Berlin, wo er sich der Novembergruppe, der Berliner Secession, den Berliner Dadaisten und der KPD anschloss. In den frühen 20er Jahren erschienen viele Buchillustrationen Schlichters. Sein Freundes- und Bekanntenkreis reichte von Bertolt Brecht, Sternberg, Alfred Döblin und Grosz bis hin zu Carl Zuckmayer, den er schon in Karlsruhe kennengelernt hatte. 1925 waren Werke Schlichters in der Ausstellung Neue Sachlichkeit in Mannheim zu sehen. Zwei Jahre später lernte er seine spätere Frau Elfriede Elisabeth Koehler, kennen und begann sich von der Politik abzukehren und dem Katholizismus zuzuwenden. Zu seinen Bekannten zählten nun Ernst von Salomon und die Brüder Ernst Jünger und Friedrich Georg Jünger. Unter den Nationalsozialisten wurden viele seiner Werke aus Museen entfernt und Schlichter wurde mit einem Arbeitsverbot belegt. Im Jahr 1939 zog Schlichter nach München, wo er unter anderem Kontakt zu Hans Scholl hatte, und sich der katholischen Zeitschrift Hochland anschloss. 1942 wurde Schlichter ausgebombt und verlor dabei einen Teil seiner Werke. Nach dem Krieg nahm er an der Ersten Deutschen Kunstausstellung in Dresden teil und gründete in München die Neue Gruppe. Gelegentlich arbeitete er für die satirische Zeitschrift Der Simpl. Sein Schaffen wandte sich jetzt dem Surrealismus zu. Rudolf Schlichter trat 1950 dem wiedergegründeten Deutschen Künstlerbund bei. - Schwache Griffknicke im Unterrand.

        [A collection of brochures and folders on mountaineering].[Austria and Switzerland, ca. 1920- ca. 1980]. Ca. 653 brochures (including a few duplicates and variant issues). With: [A collection of books relating to mountaineering].[Globally, ca. 1830- ca. 2000]. Ca. 875 books (including a few duplicates and variant issues, and several multiple-volume titles).

      An extensive and wide-ranging collection of brochures, folders and books on climbing and hiking and all other aspects related to mountaineering mainly in the Central European mountain areas. The brochures and folders concentrate on the decisive factor in that far-reaching process: the emergence of tourism. This part of the collection, comprised of 653 rare and beautiful designed travel brochures and folders, show a colorful and fascinating overview of summer tourism in the central European mountain areas (mainly Austria and Switzerland) as it developed since the 1920s: from an exclusive hiking and climbing area for the European elite during the first half of the 20th century, to the very popular and well facilitated commercial centers as we know the today. Many of these were designed by notable (poster) artists such as Herbert Matter (especially interesting because of the photomontage techniques used), Hubert Mumelter, Martin Peikert, Franz Stümvoll, Hans Thoni, and contain numerous photographs from leading photographers and various panorama's and maps by Josef Rueb, Heinrich Caesar Berann, Max Bieder, Füssli, Wolfgang Hausamann and A. Klopfenstein.The book collection of ca. 875 pieces provides an comprehensive overview of climbing on all continents, most prominently in the Alps, the Andes, the Himalaya and the Karakoram. Except for numerous, well-documented narratives of the climbing expeditions of unexplored summits and other ascents in remote and little-known mountain wilderness since the 1850s, the collection zooms in on a broad range of related subjects. These include the mental and technical aspects of climbing, climbing equipment, the art of previewing and reading of available (and easiest) routes, climbing accommodations and mountain huts, as well as risk and safety. But also detailed physical and social geographical descriptions of the mountain area, its peoples, customs and architecture and the gradual opening up of the terrain. This exceptional collection was brought together by the Dutch amateur-mountaineer Bastiaan Cornelis Pieter Hendrik van Baak, a fanatical climber and hiker since the early 1930s, fascinated and inspired by the overwhelming and ever challenging mountain world.

        "The Fairy Dance"

      Melbourne: 1920. Original drawings by Ethel Spowers, one of Australia's best "fairy illustrators". A Melbourne based school of fantasy illustration emerged in Melbourne inspired by the work and commercial success of Ida Rentoul Outwaite in the first part of the 20th. century. Spowers, along with Christian Yandell and Ethel Jackson Morris were at the forefront of this coherent artistic Melbourne phenomenon. Spowers exhibited with the Victorian Artists Society and the Arts and Crafts Society. Aware of the growing school of contemporary fantasy illustration on the international scene she drew on the influence of leading overseas artists including Kay Nielsen and Edmund Dulac. Towards the end of her life, Spowers destroyed most of her work. Examples of her original art are extremely difficult to find. This charming work is rare survivor. Original watercolour, 200mm x 206mm, signed and dated 1920, mounted and framed.

End-papers have been replaced, some spotting and dustiness to edges, staining to front cover, spine dull with several small stains, gold spine lettering dull but complete, a solid good copy. (16568). Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1] 2-303 [304: printer's imprint]. + 8-page undated publisher's catalogue inserted at rear, original red cloth, spine panel stamped in gold, front cover stamped in blind. 1250 copies printed of which this is one of 500 to 600 in the first issue binding. Lindsay's masterpiece. "A classic allegorical romance in which the landscapes and inhabitants of the planet Tormance provide an externalization of the moral and metaphysical questions that preoccupied the author. Its incarnate theological system influenced Lewis's OUT OF THE SILENT PLANET (1938), and it also bears some similarity to George Macdonald's LILITH (1895), although it is very much a work sui generis." - Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 2-72.

His views were accepted and from 1917 till the end of the war he was a neurological specialist in the Army, and subsequently under the Ministry of Pensions. He did excellent work in this field, practising at Maghull near Liverpool, and collaborating with Drs Bernard Hart, T H Pear, and Aldren Turner. He wrote his thesis for the London doctorate on psychoneuroses of war. After his earlier experience in surgery and tropical medicine, Culpin proved a highly original and successful psychiatrist. He was appointed lecturer in psychoneurosis at the London Hospital in 1920, and built up a large private practice at 1 Queen Street. His methods were never spectacular, but he was a pioneer of dynamic psychology. (Source: Royal College of surgeons) During World War 1 Culpin served in the Royal Army Medical Corps. As a military surgeon at Portsmouth and in France his experiences with shell-shocked soldiers led to an interest in war neuroses and its varied psychological manifestations. He published his research findings for his doctoral thesis as Psychoneuroses of War and Peace (Cambridge, 1920). In the 1920s he devoted his time to medical psychology, researched industrial health and lectured part time at the University of London. An eclectic thinker, with interests in psychoanalysis, temperament and abnormality, he was captive of no school, a loner, although well respected. In 1931 Culpin was appointed professor in industrial and medical psychology at the London School of Health and Tropical Medicine. Among his publications was a 1935 article for the Practitioner, 'Neurasthenia in the Tropics', which argued that white people could inhabit the tropics without ill effects.

        [Handbill]: The 'He' Vampire. With No Apologies to Kipling

      [No place - Los Angeles?: no publisher. circa 1920]. Small handbill. Approximately 4.25" x 7". Fine. A 29-line poem about women deferring to their pampered husbands, apparently in response to Kipling's poem "The Vampire," a soliloquy about the tender and bruised hearts of men who place their hopes in unfeeling women. The poem mimics some of the tropes and rhyme schemes of the Kipling poem. The final stanzas celebrate the reversal of that state of affairs:"But praise be sung in every tongueFor equal rights thruout the land!At last the men are on the run,Every single mother's son,And we the victory have won!(And they can't understand.)"Presumably the poem was prepared upon some triumph for women's rights, most likely the achievement of the vote, whether at the state or federal level is unclear. While there is no place of publication, our strong suspicion is that it was published in California. OCLC locates no copies. It does locate a single copy of a piece of sheet music by an author with this name published in Los Angeles in 1916. .
