1920. DONALD MENNIE CHINA NORTH & SOUTH A Series of Vandyk Photogravures Illustrating the Picturesque Aspect of Chinese Life and Surroundings Published by A. S. Watson & Co. Shanghai (The Shaghai Pharmacy Ltd.) Second & Revised Edition 1920 Cord bound album with stiff card covers with black lettering and photo pasted on the front.Undated, though 1920s. Title page and 30 leaves each with a tipped on Vandyk photogravure with printed captions. Some spliting along the sides of the spine back strip, and an inch missing from the lower spine, all holding together well enough. Contents and photgravures all very good. Donald Mennie (1875/1876 - 1941) was a Scottish bussinessman and amateur photographer. He arrived in Beijing in 1899; how and why is unfortunately unknown. What is known, is that he first worked as an assistant in the firm of Mactavish & Lehman & Co in Beijing. After this, he joined the company of A.S. Watson & Co in Shanghai and eventually became the firm's managing director. In his photographs Mennie seemed to have tried to capture a romantic vision of 'antique China', featuring dusty caravans of horses or camels, old palaces and authentic street scenes, all in and around Beijing. Between 1914 and 1927 he published several books covering his photographic work, including The Pageant of Peking (1920), Glimpses of China (1920), China, North and South (1922) and The Grandeur of the Gorges (1926). By these publications his work became better known and after 1900 he became proposed as a member of the Royal Geographic Society and Pictures of Peking. Mennie spent the last ye … [Click Below for Full Description]

Letzte Ausgabe der Küstenvermessungskarten des 19. Jahrhunderts In den 1920er oder 1930er Jahren, als die US Coast Survey beschloss, alle ihre ursprünglichen Kupferdruckplatten zu zerstören, wurde die Entscheidung getroffen, von jeder dieser Platten einen „letzten Durchgang" zu drucken.

Belle-Île en mer um, 1920. 16,5 x 12 cm., alt auf Karton (26,5 x 21,5 cm) montiert. Schöne Aufnahme aus den letzten Lebensjahren der wohl bedeutendsten Schauspielerin des 19. und beginnenden 20. Jahrhunderts. Sarah Bernhardt präsentiert sich stolz neben einer Kanone auf ihrem Sommerwohnsitz einer alten Festung auf der Insel Belle-Île-en-mer vor der bretonischen Atlantikküste. - Bernhardt "gilt als die berühmteste Darstellerin ihrer Zeit und war einer der ersten Weltstars. Ein wesentlicher Teil ihrer künstlerischen Arbeit – und Voraussetzung für ihren weltweiten Ruhm – waren ausgedehnte Gastspielreisen. Mit ihrer eigenen Schauspieltruppe trat sie 1879 in London auf. 1880 folgte eine halbjährige Tournee durch 51 Städte der USA. 1881 gab sie Vorstellungen in Russland, Italien, Griechenland, Ungarn, der Schweiz, Dänemark, Belgien und den Niederlanden. Englands Königin Victoria und der russische Zar Alexander III. gehörten zu ihren Bewunderern. Sie galt als eine exzentrische, oft überspannte und launische Frau und hatte zahlreiche Liebhaber, darunter den Lebemann Charles Haas, den Schauspieler Jean Mounet-Sully sowie den Maler und Illustrator Gustave Doré. Bernhardt schuf sich durch ihre Exzentrik ein öffentliches Image: Sie stieg in einer Montgolfière auf in den Himmel über Frankreich und ließ Fotos verkaufen, auf denen zu sehen ist, wie sie in einem Sarg liegt und ihre Rollen studiert oder schläft. Ihre Wohnung beherbergte eine Menagerie heimischer und exotischer Tiere. Neben Romanen und Lustspielen schrieb sie 1907 ihre Memoiren (Mein Doppelleben). Damit inspirierte sie Marce … [Click Below for Full Description]

1920. A collection of 37 issues, possibly all published, of the irregularly distributed Italian-language anarchist newspaper, edited by Aldino Felicani, as an attempt to raise funds for the defense of Sacco and Vanzetti, each issue devoted to the latest developments in the landmark case, with scattered illustrations, primarily from photographs. Some moderate wear, toning, brittle newsprint with some minor chipping and marginal tears, some issues with splitting along fold, overall good. Folio. Self-wrpps., loose as issued. Boston, 1920-1925. Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti were two Italian migrant anarchists who were convicted of mudering two employees during the April 15, 1920 armed robbery of the Slater and Morrill Shoe Company in Braintree, Massachusetts. After only a few hours of deliberation, on July 14, 1921, the jury convicted them both of first-degree murder, and they were sentenced to death. Anti-Italianism and an anti-immigrant bias were suspected as having affected the verdict. A series of appeals followed, largely funded by the Sacco and Vanzetti Defense Committee, and based on recanted testimony, ballistics evidence, and an a confession from an alleged participant in the robbery. All appeals were denied, but by 1926 the case had become international news. Many suspected the men's innocence. In 1927, protests were held on their behalf throughout North America and Europe, as well as in Tokyo, Melbourne, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Dubai, Montevideo, Johannesburg, and Auckland.

All appeals were denied, but by 1926 the case had become international news. Many suspected the men's innocence. In 1927, protests were held on their behalf throughout North America and Europe, as well as in Tokyo, Melbourne, São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Dubai, Montevideo, Johannesburg, and Auckland. In response, Massachusetts governor Alvan T. Fuller appointed a three- … [Click Below for Full Description]

Kahn, Fritz
Due to this item's weight, extra shipping will be required.First editions, first impressions of all five volumes of Fritz Kahn's modernist magnum opus, a rare complete set including the famous poster "Der Mensch als Industriepalast", the poster "Stammbaum des Menschen" (Man's Family Tree), the eight page explanatory text accompanying the posters, the publisher's prospectus, 3D glasses for viewing some of the illustrations, and a broadside apologising for delays in publishing. Kahn, a German gynaecologist, was "arguably one of the most successful popular science writers internationally between 1920 and 1960" (Borck, "Communicating the Modern Body", Canadian Journal of Communications, Vol. 32, No. 3, p. 495). His heavily illustrated books combined science with the zeitgeist of Weimar Germany: new technologies, rapid industrialisation, and the Bauhaus and Dada movements. Das Leben des Menschen was Kahn's greatest achievement, a copiously illustrated five-volume set on human anatomy and physiology which took nearly a decade to complete. "Prolonged by the inflation crisis of 1923 and the economic depression at the end of the 1920s, but also by the difficulties of containing the increasingly extensive material in the initially planned volumes, the book finally amounted to more than 1,600 pages, with the last of its fifty binders issued and distributed in 1931, a decade after the start of the project. More than a thousand illustrations were included in the five volumes, and almost 150 colour plates" (Borck, pp. 501-502).

Bernhardt, Sarah (eig. Marie Henriette Rosine Bernardt, 1844-1923, franz. Schauspielerin).
1920. 16,5 x 12 cm., alt auf Karton (26,5 x 21,5 cm) montiert. Schöne Aufnahme aus den letzten Lebensjahren der wohl bedeutendsten Schauspielerin des 19. und beginnenden 20. Jahrhunderts. Sarah Bernhardt präsentiert sich stolz neben einer Kanone auf ihrem Sommerwohnsitz einer alten Festung auf der Insel Belle-Île-en-mer vor der bretonischen Atlantikküste. - Bernhardt "gilt als die berühmteste Darstellerin ihrer Zeit und war einer der ersten Weltstars... Ein wesentlicher Teil ihrer künstlerischen Arbeit und Voraussetzung für ihren weltweiten Ruhm waren ausgedehnte Gastspielreisen. Mit ihrer eigenen Schauspieltruppe trat sie 1879 in London auf. 1880 folgte eine halbjährige Tournee durch 51 Städte der USA. 1881 gab sie Vorstellungen in Russland, Italien, Griechenland, Ungarn, der Schweiz, Dänemark, Belgien und den Niederlanden. Englands Königin Victoria und der russische Zar Alexander III. gehörten zu ihren Bewunderern... Sie galt als eine exzentrische, oft überspannte und launische Frau und hatte zahlreiche Liebhaber, darunter den Lebemann Charles Haas, den Schauspieler Jean Mounet-Sully sowie den Maler und Illustrator Gustave Doré. Bernhardt schuf sich durch ihre Exzentrik ein öffentliches Image: Sie stieg in einer Montgolfière auf in den Himmel über Frankreich und ließ Fotos verkaufen, auf denen zu sehen ist, wie sie in einem Sarg liegt und ihre Rollen studiert oder schläft. Ihre Wohnung beherbergte eine Menagerie heimischer und exotischer Tiere. Neben Romanen und Lustspielen schrieb sie 1907 ihre Memoiren (Mein Doppelleben). Damit inspirierte sie Marcel Proust, der in se … [Click Below for Full Description]
