When Bohla began his second portfolio, Neue Motive, it was meant to become an inspiration for the viewer and entice him or her to be active and creative in this field. The backdrop for this work is stated in the introduction by the author: "The study of nature serves as foundation from the outset. Not to copy nature, as a trained eye sees it, was the intention, something different could be created only when considering the form of the presentation. The objective is to create studies in a beautiful rendition, the extraction of decorative forms while applying complete freedom, recording the essence while omitting all ornateness is the general guideline. Starting with the choice of motifs diligence has to be applied. Useful native plants and animals are plentiful in nature. You can find them. magnifiers and mirrors might disclose hidden allures/charms. Happy and fresh colors are to be used … [Click Below for Full Description]

c1920. This handmade photography guide, called, Kodakery, contains a series of drawings, photographs, and printed photographs, used to illustrate the art of photography. Made from a photo album, it contains 23 pages of written text, 5 pages of drawings, 26 individual photographs, and 16 printed photographs. Kodakery is a term that was derived from the camera name "Kodak", and according to this guide it meant "the taking of pictures, developing and finally printing to show the picture." The guide starts off with a description of the camera itself, its various parts and 6 different types of lenses (miniscus, concave, convex, meniscus achromatic, rapid rectilnear, and anastigmatic lenses), and more specifically how light enters the camera through the different lenses. The guide continues on to provide in-depth explanations of a fixed focus camera and of that of an adjustable focal length, and what that means for the camera's depth of focus, even discussing what F-stops are best for different types of pictures. Next the guide discusses the film itself and its different parts: a strip of celluloid, a gelatin, and a silver bromide, before continuing on to instruct the reader on how to develop the film and how make prints from the negatives. This section is rather in depth, as it goes into the room requirements, the chemicals needed, how to enlarge prints, and different contrast filters that can be used. The guide ends with a series of quick tips for the reader to remember, such as "be sure the temperature of the developer and fixing is below 70 degrees" and "fixed focus cameras … [Click Below for Full Description]

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1920. #47 of sixty SIGNED copies of the first edition of this play, written as sort of a joke, says Mencken, mostly by him with some embellishments by Nathan; they tried to get it produced under a pseudonym but failed, then decided to publish it: they intended that it should contain no new ideas. There were 60 signed copies produced, 50 for sale; an "Acting Edition" of 200, none of which were for sale; and a numbered trade edition of 2000, unsigned. (Adler, pages 25/6). Hardcover, vellum spine over black speckled boards. Edges worn, vellum spotted & stained; no jacket. Text clean; 183 pages. . First Edition. Hard Cover. Good/No Jacket. Octavo.

Dixon, Maynard
[San Francisco]: [1912-1920]. 74 leaves [46 cm x 39 cm] of handmade paper. The majority of the leaves have three uniform holes at the left. Item #2886 The portfolio contains 75 entries (28 are duplicates), as well as the title page, on handmade paper. All entries are in Dixon's distinctive hand, and include the title, size, date, and sometimes the location and disposition of the work. The cover is titled Paintings by Maynard Dixon, along with his distinctive Thunderbird symbol outlined in a circle. The entries were accompanied by original photographs done by noted San Francisco photographer Gabriel Moulin. Most of the Moulin photographs have been removed but five still remain. These photographs [24 cm x 17 cm] contain either Edith Hamlin's stamp or Gabriel Moulin's (and in many cases some pencil annotations, probably by Hamlin). 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. Dixon probably intended the portfolio as a document he could show prospective clients and for museum and gallery exhibitions. Although most of the photographs have been removed by Dixon or his third wife, Edith Hamlin, th … [Click Below for Full Description]

[c. 1920]. One of a series of five photographs known as The Cottingley Fairy pictures -- one of the great photographic hoaxes. Two young girls cousins, Frances Griffiths and Elsie Wright, produced the five pictures (two in 1917 and three more in 1920) using the camera which belonged to Elsie's father and taking them while playing in the garden of Elsie's home in Cottingley. In 1919 Elsie's mother took the first two pictures to a meeting of the Theosophical Society where all assembled were enthralled. They came to the attention of one of leaders, Edward Gardner, at the society's annual conference, who had them "authenticated" by photographer Harold Snelling who declared them "genuine unfaked photographs of single exposure". The images began circulating among the English spiritualist community, which included Arthur Conan Doyle. It was Doyle who urged the girls to take more photographs in 1920 -- this image is from that group. Some years later Gardner published Fairies: The Cottingley Photographs and Their Sequel. He described this image #4 as taken August 1920. Camera: Cameo Quarter. He explains why Elsie does not seem to be looking directly at the fairy: "With fairy lovers the habit of looking at first a little sideways is common". The seriousness of this description underscores the importance of these photographs to spiritualists of the early 20th century, and the absurdity as well. The photographs are sometimes found on cardstock mounts with printed captions underneath. This silver gelatin print, with a darkened caption, we believe to be a bit later, and probably produced … [Click Below for Full Description]

Some chips with edgewear thus a very good album with near fine lightly sunned photographs. A family photo album from 1906 through to the mid-1920s from various places in Connecticut. The album is a gift to Mr. and Mrs. Chas B. Watrous from Mr. and Mrs. M. W. Bassett with the date, Feb 25, 1908 and "Congratulations" written on the front. The photographs mostly focus on the children of Charles and Annie Watrous. They have three children, Ruth, Miriam, and Herbert but Ruth has the most pictures with little captions under each one such as "Be jabbers," "I'm mad," and "Goo bye!" Ruth is seen in photos from almost every year between 1906 and 1920 in the album while her brother Herbert has a much smaller amount of photos. Miriam is only seen in one picture but this is probably due to the fact that she passed away at the age of three. There are also pictures of the extended family, one of which shows all the women wearing large and extravagant hats and other shows the women in the family all playing croquet. The family moves a couple times to different places in Connecticut such as Thomaston and Plymouth in Litchfield and Niantic in East Lyme.

The album is a gift to Mr. and Mrs. Chas B. Watrous from Mr. and Mrs. M. W. Bassett with the date, Feb 25, 1908 and "Congratulations" written on the front. The photographs mostly focus on the children of Charles and Annie Watrous. They have three children, Ruth, Miriam, and Herbert but Ruth has the most pictures with little captions under each one such as "Be jabbers," "I'm mad," and "Goo bye!" Ruth is seen in photos from almost every year between 1906 and 1920 in the album while her brother Herbert has a much smaller amount of photos. Miriam is only seen in one picture but this is probably due to the fact that she passed away at the age of three. There are also pictures of the extended family, one of which shows all the women wearing large and extravagant hats and other shows the women in the family all playing croquet. The family moves a couple times to different places in Connecticut such as Thomaston and Plymouth in Litchfield and Niantic in East Lyme.

c1920. This handmade photography guide, called, Kodakery, contains a series of drawings, photographs, and printed photographs, used to illustrate the art of photography. Made from a photo album, it contains 23 pages of written text, 5 pages of drawings, 26 individual photographs, and 16 printed photographs. Kodakery is a term that was derived from the camera name "Kodak", and according to this guide it meant "the taking of pictures, developing and finally printing to show the picture." The guide starts off with a description of the camera itself, its various parts and 6 different types of lenses (miniscus, concave, convex, meniscus achromatic, rapid rectilnear, and anastigmatic lenses), and more specifically how light enters the camera through the different lenses. The guide continues on to provide in-depth explanations of a fixed focus camera and of that of an adjustable focal length, and what that means for the camera's depth of focus, even discussing what F-stops are best for different types of pictures. Next the guide discusses the film itself and its different parts: a strip of celluloid, a gelatin, and a silver bromide, before continuing on to instruct the reader on how to develop the film and how make prints from the negatives. This section is rather in depth, as it goes into the room requirements, the chemicals needed, how to enlarge prints, and different contrast filters that can be used. The guide ends with a series of quick tips for the reader to remember, such as "be sure the temperature of the developer and fixing is below 70 degrees" and "fixed focus cameras … [Click Below for Full Description]

Albert EINSTEIN
Albert EINSTEIN: SCHALLAUSBREITUNG IN TEILWEISE DISSOZIIERTEN GASEN. [Propagation of Sound in Partly Dissociated Gases.] Sitzungsberichte der Preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften, XVIII (1920). Sitzung der physikalisch-mathematischen Klasse vom 8. April. Sonderabdruck [Offprint]). Berlin: Verlag der Akademie der Wissenschaften (in commission at Walter de Gruyter [Reichsdruckerei]), 29th April 1920. Imperial 8vo (25,4:18,2 cm). 6 pages, numbered 380-385.

These offprints are printed from the same s … [Click Below for Full Description]
