Max von Recklinghausen
Weyhe, New York, 1920. Olive green folding wraps, surrounding 17 signed prints. One American copy found, in the Spencer Museum of Art. He is said to have been active in New York City in the early 1920s, which may explain Weyhe publishing these prints for him portfolio-style. He also exhibited in Worcester in 1920 at the annual exhibition there. Very little can be found out about this artist, but the artwork is accomplished and pleasing. VG+, some staining to green wraps [Attributes: Soft Cover]

KOUSSEVITZKY, Serge 1874-1951
Ca. 1920. 199 x 149 mm. In pencil on wove paper. Slightly worn and creased; minor loss to upper left blank corner. "[Koussevitzky] was one of three glamorous iconic maestros who dominated American symphonic culture after World War I. Though he never attained the national renown of Arturo Toscanini or Leopold Stokowski, he far surpassed both as an influential advocate of American music. And neither Toscanini nor Stokowski left as tangible a legacy as Koussevitzky's Tanglewood. Having entered the Moscow Philharmonic Music School at 14, he chose the double bass as one of three instruments for which open scholarships were available. He joined the double basses of the Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra six years later, and began touring as a double bass virtuoso two years after that... [He] came to the United States in 1924 to suceed Pierre Monteux as conductor of the Boston SO... The capstone of Koussevitzky's mission was the Berkshire Music Center at Tanglewood. The Boston SO gave summer concerts in the Berkshires beginning in 1936... Koussevitzky's conducting students included Leonard Bernstein and Lukas Foss." Joseph Horowitz in Grove Music Online. The present drawing is unattributed and undated, but was presumably executed during the period when Koussevitszky was active as a double bass virtuoso prior to his conducting career. Item #29814.

All entries are in Dixon's distinctive hand, and include the title, size, date, and sometimes the location and disposition of the work.

Most of the Moulin photographs have been removed but five still remain.

The photographed paintings are: 'The Trading Post' - 'Corral Dust' - 'Camp in the Mountains' - 'Home Pastures' - 'The Old Cow Town'.Among the numerous entries are murals for Anita Baldwin's Indian Room and Jinks Room for her Arcadia home, The Old Trading Post, Corral Dust, Home Pastures, Pony Boy, Blackfeet Historians, Camp in the Mountains, The Navajos, The Story Tellers, From Range to Range, What an Indian Thinks, Cattle Country, Home of the Half-Breed, among others.A number of works are from his legendary 1917 trip to Montana.

Spine cloth faded with titles on spine mostly illegible. Light soiling. Front inner hinge repaired, small stray mark to front free endpaper. Light offsetting to rear blank sheets from four-leaf clover laid in. Rachel is generally accepted as the first published and produced play by an African American woman; it originally ran in 1916 at Myrtill Miner Normal School in Washington, D.C. The playwright was an important figure in the Harlem Renaissance. Some of her work suggests she may have been a lesbian, with much stronger undertones found in her unpublished poems sparking speculation, implying she may have lived a life of "personal and creative" suppression.[Attributes: First Edition]

Original sealing paper backing is lacking, with the photographer's label "R.H. LeSesne, Frame Department, Daytona Florida" affixed at the bottom edge. A few slight blemishes to the frame surface; otherwise, a very good example. Richard Habersham LeSesne, 1880 - 1948, was born in Clarkesville, Habersham County, Georgia and settled in Daytona, Florida by 1908,when he purchased the photographic studio of Henry Kaiser; he died there in 1946. His reputation as a photographer is primarily tied to the Daytona Beach Speedway where he documented the land speed record attempts from the 1920s through the 1930s. However, as Daytona Beach gained as a winter destination for those further north wanting warmer climes, he seemed to have established a market for his local landscapes, using the Orotone, or as he named them, Halberle-tones, the process made famous by Edward S. Curtis. In keeping with the similarity of appearance, LeSesne used the same "bat-wing" frames that Curtis popularized.

Albert Einstein
New York: Holt. Very good copy of the first 1920 US edition by Einstein. RELATIVITY The Special and General Theory by Dr. Albert Einstein Published by Henry Holt, New York in 1920 First American Edition (and the first non-technical work written by Albert Einstein about his Theory of General and Special Relativity in English) AN IMPORTANT AND SIGNIFICANT BOOK , and Albert Einstein's most important book. Overall a very good copy in the first edition of a very important book, with title page dated 1920 and published in New York by Henry Holt and Company, and with the frontis portrait of Einstein. The book is in its original blue cloth with a bit of soiling to boards, as shown in my photos, and with two faint white soil areas to rear board (that could be removed by a conservator). Front cover imprinting in dulled gold, spine imprinting in dulled green as is usually found with this rare book. The front upper right corner of the front cover is a bit bumped and what looks like a damp stain from long ago. This bumping extends to about the first 33 pages or so, but not objectionable, but noted here. The blue cloth spine ends have been pushed in over the many decades with two horizontal splits in the cloth as shown in my photos, but no loss of the blue cloth. There is no real shelving wear to the corners of the boards, which is uncommon. This book is square and sound without cocking or slant to the volume. The interior hinges are sound, the end papers clean (a small circular book-sellers label affixed to the inner corner of the rear fixed end paper). End papers with very light foxing … [Click Below for Full Description]

1920. A treasure trove of 78 glass advertising slides for use in a Petersburg movie theater in the 1920's or 1930's. These would have been flashed up on the screen before and after the movie, and perhaps during the movie when the reels were being changed. They are rather crudely handpainted and lettered, adding to their local charms. "Tony's" on Sycamore Street "Known coast to coast for our home cooked and delicious meals"; "Bob White Ice Cream"; "Mann's Bread Served Exclusively at our Eating Booth" -- these are but a few of the many Petersburg businesses whose flickering names often with a painted image appeared on a Petersburg movie screen.

FORSTER, E.M.
London Labour Research Department, 1920. Only edition; 8vo; publisher's stapled wrappers with printed title label mounted to upper wrapper. A refreshingly good example of a book once thought to be a true rarity. In truth copies do surface on occasion, however, seldom thus in collector's condition. The pamphlet outlines the historical, social and political relationship between Egypt and the UK, in small part based derived from the time Forster spent as a volunteer in Alexandria with the Red Cross between November 1915 and January 1919.

In order to support the revolution art and clothing of the roaring twenties, he published, in 1912, a first shirt, with illustrations of Georges Lepape. Before the reception to this first publication, he decides, each year, to propose a similar shirt, with authors and various artists.

Ramón Sopena (1867-1932) was a Spanish editor who founded the publishing house that bears his name in 1894 in Barcelona. He was a multifaceted editor that published essentially dictionaries and encyclopedias, but also, journals. For some time he also edited erotic works, and then opted for popular literature. In the children's genre, he published small works in series such as the ones we offer here: the CHILDREN COLLECTION or the LIBRARY FOR CHILDREN. The printing house had a long life, since it closed only in 2004. The purpose of the CHILDREN'S COLLECTION (ÂÂ"Episodios historicosÂÂ") ("Historical episodes"), was to make relevant topics of SpainÂÂ's history available to children. ÂÂ"Vida de hombres celebresÂÂ", ("Life of famous men"), are brief biographies of characters from Spanish and universal history.

Ouvrage composé d'un exposé théorique suivi de ses applications avec des données bibliographiques, des remarques et des notes ainsi qu'un index. Dans la préface du présent ouvrage, Milankovitch expose comment il décida de se consacrer entièrement à l'étude de cette question : "décrire mathématiquement la marche de l'insolation de la surface terrestre, et trouver, par des lois physiques, la connexion entre cette insolation et la température de la surface du globe et de son atmosphère. Sous une telle forme, la proposition devient le problème fondamental de la Météorologie et de la Climatologie ; et je dois avouer ma surprise quand je remarquai que ce problème n'avait pas encore été résolu, même dans ses grands traits, malgré son importance particulière" (préface, p. V.) Dès 1911, Milankovitch, alors assistant en mathématiques appliquées à l'université de Belgrade, décide de dresser une carte des périodes glaciaires. Officier de réserve durant la guerre des Balkans, il est interné pendant la Première Guerre Mondiale dans un camp de l'armée austro-hongroise de prisonniers de guerre en Autriche, où il séjournait durant sa lune de miel.
