      1920 - A unique literary archive of Norman Davey (1888-1949), an English engineer, poet, and novelist. In 1914 he published 2 diverse books, The Gas Turbine and Poems with a Prefixed Essay. Four of his poems appeared in Cambridge Poets 1914-1920. An Anthology (1920). He wrote 18 books, the famous book being his bestselling novel entitled The Pilgrim of a Smile (1921). Early in his career, Davey was featured by Grant Overton, the literary editor and critic, in When Winter Comes to Main Street (1922). All items housed in a matching box. Circa 1917-20. Many drafts of poems are untitled, and some are crossed out. Approximately [410] pp. of written text. Also includes two books written by Davies: his very scarce first book, Poems by Norman Davey with a Prefixed Essay (London: L.C.C. Central School of Arts and Crafts, 1914). Printed in black and red, greenish blue paper boards, quarter-bound in dark greenish blue cloth. His last work entitled The Ghost of a Rose (London: Chapman & Hall, 1939). Blue cloth in chipped jacket, price clipped on front flap, signed presentation copy. (1) "Tristia, Book II - (Ad Lalage) Continued" consisting of drafts of the following poems: "The Fire"; "The Rain"; "The Ship"; "The Sea"; "A Word in Farewell"; "O BIB O "; "TIB. LIB.I.1. LIT. TRANS."; "Order of Sonnets" (also titled "Sonnets Out of Sequence") with "San Apollinaire in Classe", "Bologna", "Tchehov", "Artzi Bashef", "The Charioteer", "Agnani", "Edward Gibbon", "Toulouse", "Giotto's Tower", "The New Renaissance", "An Afterword"; "By the Canal in Flanders" (in blue ink); "A Broadside Addressed". The notebook has what appears to be a table of contents: "Ad Ovidun Apologia. Ad Lectores. A Forewa[o]rd. Book I Ad Mæcenas. Book II Ad Lalage with an Interpretation from Tibulus. Book III Ad Camerium. Bibliophilos (?) Sonnes (?)". Marbled paper boards, quarter-bound in black cloth. Ruled paper. [82] pp. Light brown endpapers.

V Conceptions of a Conference. VI The Survival of a Supper Party. VII A Carnival in Cannon's Square. IX Preadventures with the Press" This appears to be a preliminary table of contents of The Pilgrim of a Smile (London: Chapman & Hall, 1921) since Penhaligon is featured in the novel. The second table of contents is said to be a "Proposed Scheme": "Tristia. (Quotations). Ad Ovidum Aplogia. Ad Lectorem. A Foreword. Ad Lalagem. Ad Corinnam. Ad Pholoen. Ad Liginium." Black flexible cloth. Ruled paper. [183] pp. Light green endpapers. Davey's name appears on the second table of contents.

        Otto Hutt Füllhalter Entwurf 04 »Princess Cut«. Goldfeder Strichstärke F.

      - Pforzheim am Rande des Schwarzwaldes ist Deutschlands Zentrum der Schmuck- und Edelmetallwaren. Hier gründete 1920 ein Mann ein Unternehmen für Taschengebrauchsartikel und edle Schreibgeräte aus Silber: Otto Hutt. Der Gestaltungsauffassung des Bauhauses stand er nahe, sein Anspruch an eine schnörkellose Form, die vornehmlich der Funktion dient, spiegelte sich schon damals in seinen Entwürfen wider. So innovativ wie beständig – ein wesentlicher Bestandteil wahrhaft guten Designs –werden die qualitätvollen Schreibgeräte auch heute noch in der Tradition von Otto Hut und ausschließlich in Deutschland hergestellt. So entstehen hochwertige Gebrauchsgegenstände, die das Gütezeichen »Made in Germany« mit vollem Recht tragen. Alle Komponenten der Otto Hutt Schreibgeräte sind perfekt in ihrer Funktionalität, langlebig im Gebrauch und nachhaltig in den verwendeten Materialien. Ferner besitzen die Füllhalter eine Otto Hutt-Feder mit eingraviertem Markenlogo - ein besonderes Qualitätsmerkmal, sie ist das Herzstück jedes Füllfederhalters und ausschlaggebend für die Freude am schönen Schreiben. Die Individualität dieser Schreibgeräte ist primär begründet in ihrer hohen Material- und Fertigungsqualität, hinzu kommt eine durchgehende Nummerierung: jeweils in der Kappe ist ein 6-stelliger Nummerncode eingraviert.»Entwurf 04« mit der goldenen Schreibfeder ist kompromisslos seinem Zweck untergeordnet, ohne schmückendes Beiwerk. Die Dimensionen sind kompakt und abgestimmt auf eine optimale Handhabung. Ein ganz besonderes Merkmal und Beispiel für die hohe Präzision der mechanischen Fertigung dieser Schreibsysteme ist der Federclip, herausgearbeitet aus massivem Messing, veredelt mit einer Platinschicht und perfekt in seiner Funktion. Alle Füllfederhalter des »Entwurf 04« werden mit wertvollen 18 Karat Goldfedern, deren Schreibflächen mehrfach von Hand geschliffen und poliert sind, ausgestattet. Der Schaft ist in einem weltweit nur noch sehr selten angewandten – weil langwierigen und aufwändigen – Prozess dezent »guillochiert«, also mit einem Gravur-Strich von insgesamt 5,8 Metern (!) versehen – das ist Hohe Kunst der Silberbearbeitung, benannt nach ihrem Erfinder im 17. Jahrhundert, Monsieur Guillot. Das Gewicht des Silbers der Schäfte und Kappen lässt die Materialqualität in der Hand fühlbar werden –klassische Formgebung und traditionelle Handwerkskunst in Vollendung! 1 Füllhalter 13,2 cm, Goldfeder Strichstärke F (fein), Corpus komplett aus Sterlingsilber, 5,8 m Guillochierung, für Patrone/Konverter, 1 Patrone innenliegend, mechanische Clipeinheit mit Federfunktion, mit Garantiekarte in Schatulle.

      N.D.. Painting. No Date (ca. 1920? ) . Original watercolor by Steinhart painted on the half title of from their joint publication, "Rot und Glühend is das Auge des Juden" (Berlin, 1920) which was a collection of poems by Nadel illustrated by Steinhart. The original watercolor, which is very similar to the woodcut on the cover of their book, is paired with an original autograph version of the title poem (“Rot und Glühend ist das Auge des Juden”) signed by Nadel, The watercolor is 8x9"; the poem is about 7x9." Total size to mat is 11x22. Steinhardt (1887-1968) was “born in Zerkow, Germany (now Zerków, Poland) . He attended the School of Art in Berlin in 1906, then studied painting with Lovis Corinth and engraving with Hermann Struck in 1907. From 1908 to 1910 he lived in Paris, where he associated with Henri Matisse and Théophile Steinlen, and in 1911 he was in Italy…. In 1922 married Minni Gumpert. They immigrated to Palestine in 1933, after he was harassed by the German police, dominated by the Nazis who recently came to power. Jacob Steinhardt…participated in the Berlin Secession and founded the Pathetiker Group. He was a member of the Bezalel school group. In 1934, Steinhardt opened an art school in Jerusalem. In 1948, he became Chairman of the Graphics Department at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. He served as director of the school in 1954-1957. The Jewish Museum Berlin houses the largest Steinhardt collection in the world” (Wikipedia, 2017) . Steinhardt's highly original art is rooted in the values and symbols of Judaism. Much of his work echoes a religious vision: he has managed to depict in a plastic manner such prophits as Isaiah, Jeremiah, Jonah, and also Moses. He has also done with impressive simplicity scenes of Jewish life, its sorrows and joys. His style has varied from radical expressionism in his youth almost to conservatism in his later years. In all periods of his creative work, Steinhardt has been a master of portraiture. His shows include: Berlin and Paris, before 1933; Six one-man shows in Israeli museums, 1934-64; American museums, 1952-1963; San Paulo Biennale, 1955; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, 1957; Venice Biennale, 1958; His awards include: Prize of the International Institution for Liturgical Art, 1958; Gold Medal of Naples at International Exhibition "Arte Sacra", Trieste Contemporary Israel Art, Paris, National Museum of Modern Art, 1960. Arno Nadel (1878-1943) was a Jewish musicologist, composer, playwright, poet, and painter. Born in Vilna to an Orthodox Jewish family. In 1890, Nadel moved from Lithuania to Germany. At the age of 12, Nadel studied in Königsberg, Germany, under the cantor Eduard Birnbaum, then moving to Berlin at age 17 to enroll in the Hochschule für die Wissenschaft des Judentums. There he studied with composer Ludwig Mendelssohn and Max Lowengard. ”In 1916, he became choir director of the Jewish community of Berlin which included the supervision of music at all Berlin synagogues. Nadel was also a very prolific playwright and poet…. In November 1938, he was sent to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp. Although Nadel was lucky enough to get papers to leave for England, he was too frail to make the trip. In March 1943, he and his wife were deported to the Auschwitz extermination camp. He died there the same year” (Wikipedia, 2017) . Nicely matted and framed, Very Good Condition. (PAINT-2-5) .

        'Golfeuse sous la pluie'

      Watercolour and ink on paper, 275 x 195 mm, signed and dated 1920 at lower left; matted; in fine condition. The French artist A.-E. Marty was a pioneer of the Art Déco style. Although principally a fashion illustrator whose work was published in such periodicals as Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Vanity Fair, he also illustrated books and designed advertisements and posters, most notably for the Ballets Russes. In 1925 he was appointed to the jury of the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, from which the Art Déco movement took its name. This watercolour of a tall, elegant lady playing a golf shot in the rain while her caddy protects her with a large green umbrella is a superb example of Marty's work. It was exhibited in the Marty retrospective staged in 1976 at the Galerie du Luxembourg, Paris, and featured in the exhibition catalogue (A.-E. Marty 1882-1974, no. 10).

        Plastic surgery of the face based on selected cases of war injuries of the face including burns with original illustrations

      London: Henry Frowde, Hodder and Stoughton, 1920. FIRST EDITION. With hundreds of text photographs and illustrations. Original cloth with spine showing slight wear, still an excellent copy with the ownership inscription of Dr. Sidney Asher on first free endpaper and the blind stamp of Dr. Kelvin Shiffman. First edition. This work reflects the progress made in plastic surgery of specifically war injuries to the fact by the author at the Queen's Hospital at Sidcup. Many novel procedures are detailed. In a very sensitive introduction, W. Arbuthnot Lane states: "It is not sufficiently recognised how readily the skill developed in this branch of war surgery is directly applicable to the relief of disfigurements met with in civil life. Ugly scars resulting from burns and accidents, deformities of the nose and lips, hare lip and cleft palate, abnormal protrusion or ill development of the mandible, moles, port-wine stains, all abound, and are not only the constant source of the greatest distress and anguish, but materially lower the market value of the individual." Gillies (1882-1960), a well-known plastic surgeon, introduced a tubed pedical flap in 1917.

        The Feathered Witness." An unpublished film scenario. Original typescript.

      ND circa 1920s - Unbound. Typed on the rectos only of thirteen large sheets of buff colored paper. 8 ¾ x 11 ¼ inches. Probably written in the 1920s. An interesting melodrama, involving amnesia, murder, and mistaken identity. The film scenario was sent by Crowley to his American disciple W. T. Smith in the early 1930s with the intent that they be anonymously promoted to Hollywood studios. For this reason Crowley's name, which would had been on the first page of the scenario, has been razored out. (See further Martin P. Starr "The Unknown God", p. 322, n. 18.) This typescript is from the from the library of Helen Parsons Smith (1910 - 2003), ex-wife of Jack Parsons & widow of W. T. Smith, long time member of Agape Lodge of the OTO, and founder of Thelema Publications. A small (3 1/2"x ¾") section which had held Crowley's name excised from the top of the first leaf. Three holes punched down inside margins - obviously to secure it in a folder of some sort. Page edges a little dusty, and a few small brown spots. Otherwise VG+ condition.

        Broadside: THE WOMAN'S BIBLE: Editor Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Carrie Chapman Catt, President of the National Suffrage Association, one of the Revising Committee, 16 inches x 9.5 inches, ca 1920

      - The 19th Amendment to the US Constitution granted all female citizens the right to vote in federal elections. This broadside was part of the campaign against ratification of the 19th Amendment. The broadside asks in large letters: Are you willing for women who hold these views to become political powers in our country?" "These Views" refers to the two volume book, published 1895-6, by Stanton criticizing the Bible's presentation of women as subservient to men. The broadside includes quotes from "The Woman's Bible" noting the page numbers. Within the suffrage movement, many women opposed the publication of "The Woman's Bible" out of concern that the book would antagonize not only current supporters but limit expansion of the suffrage movement. Overall condition is very good.

        Original gouache for the cover of Vogue Paris, 1935

      Original gouache on card, 340 x 260 mm, signed in the image lower left, a little marked at edges. A stunning modernist painting by noted French designer Ray Bret-Koch for the front cover of Vogue Paris. Bret-Koch is recognised as a commercial illustrator and designer as well as architect active in Paris in the mid twentieth century. Having studied architecture under Robert Mallet-Stevens and art under Andre Groualt and Roger Tolmer, Bret-Koch designed a number of advertisements for major fashion and literary magazines as well as graphic posters. He was a close personal friend of Jean Cocteau. Founded in 1920, Vogue Paris is widely considered one of the most stylish fashion magazines in the world. Designed as a cover for the magazine during 1935, this striking modernist work incorporates elements of casual couture and recreational pursuits which, against a brilliant yellow background, capture the sense of pre-war Paris in the summertime. Provenance : the estate of the artist, Paris.

        Sen, zivot duse. 10 puvodních litografií. [Dream, the life of the soul. A portfolio of ten original lithographs]

      Veraikon 1920 - Original portfolio (28 × 25 cm), with lithographed title, colophon, and ten lithographs on separate leaves, with protective calques. Blind-embossed title label affixed to front wrapper. Portfolio lightly worn, with small loss to lower spine and old tape repair to spine; contents very good or better. Unrecorded portfolio of ten striking lithographs by Adámek, a theosophical and mystic painter and graphic artist who participated in the Sursum Art Association, which defined itself as expressly anti-realist and concerned with "spiritual and cultist" concerns. Among its other members were Emil Pacovský, Josef Váchal, Jan Kon?pek, Jan Zrzavý, Rudolf Medek. The Czech critic Gustav Jaro? considered this lithographed cycle not only to be Adámek's most important work, but saw it as unique in Czech art for its imaginative immediacy; he coined the term "soulpainting" (du?emalba) to describe it. Adámek's ethereal drawings carry titles such as "The soul's awakening" and "Approaching the mysterium." Not located in KVK, OCLC. Not at the Czech National Library.

They feel the pain and they point to the place which hurts… But I think it right to say that the mere establishment of this Commission has created a difficulty… (The) Commission must either recommend restrictive legislation or not….

        Relativity - The Special and the General Theory - A Popular Exposition - in the original 5 shillings dust wrapper

      London: Methuen, 1920. A first edition, first printing published by Methuen in 1920. A very good+ (or better) book with one small name and date to the head of the front endpaper. Some foxing spots to the page edges (one to the prelims), with some light off-setting to the endpapers. Spine is very lightly faded, but the colour of the boards is strong. In the exceptionally scarce original dust wrapper correctly priced at 5/-. Two small archival tape repairs to closed tears on the spine (repaired internally). Patch of rubbing obscuring the 'T' and 'H' of Methuen to the foot of the spine. Some light chipping to the spine tips and corners. The wrapper may be a slightly later issue example given the list of books on the flaps, but this may be explained by the difference in years in terms of translations etc. To find this book in an original dust wrapper is scarce. The front panel of the book explains that Einstein's theory 'has made a new era in science'. Rare.

        The Works of Joseph Conrad: Signed Limited Edition.

      Garden City, NY: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1920-1926. Complete works of Joseph Conrad. Signed by Joseph Conrad on the limitation-page of Volume I. Octavo, 22 volumes, finely bound in full blue morocco, gilt title and tooling to the spine, raised bands, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Frontispiece portrait in Volume I. One of 735 copies of the Sun-Dial Edition. In near fine condition. A very nice set.   Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. He joined the British merchant marine in 1878, and was granted British nationality in 1886. Though he did not speak English fluently until he was in his twenties, he was a master prose stylist who brought a non-English sensibility into English literature. Conrad is considered an early modernist, though his works still contain elements of 19th-century realism. "His narrative style and anti-heroic characters have influenced many authors, including T. S. Eliot, William Faulkner, Graham Greene, and Salman Rushdie" (John Stape, The Many Lives of Joseph Conrad).
