Evans, C[harles] S[eddon]; Rackham, Arthur (Illustrations)
William Heinemann, London, 1920. First trade edition, octavo size, 111 pp., in a custom binding by Katharine Pountney. One of the most beloved fairy tales of all time, "Sleeping Beauty" (sometimes titled "Little Briar Rose") was originally published by Giambattista Basile (1566-1632) in his "The Pentamerone" published posthumously in 1634, based on a tale of which our earliest traces date back to the 1330s or 1340s. Basile's version was later adapted and published by Charles Perrault in 1697, upon which the Brothers Grimm based their story. Therefore, when Charles Seddon Evans (1883-1944), of the publishing firm of William Heinemann, decided to edit the story to enable the inimitable Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) to have more text for his wonderful silhouette illustrations, he was going down a pathway already well-trodden. He described the feasts and discussed in detail the prince's attempts to prevent the evil spell, in order to make the story less violent and thus more acceptable to "modern" children and parents (n.b., from the "Quicklet on C.S. Evans's 'The Sleeping Beauty' " by Amber Larkins). While "Sleeping Beauty" only has one full-colour plate (the frontispiece), it is replete with Rackham's glorious silhouettes; with three double-page silhouette drawings with colour, two full-page silhouette drawings with colour, and six double and eight single-page silhouette drawings in black and white; it is also replete with in-text illustrations, and has lovely pictorial endpapers in green and white. In a custom binding by Katharine Pountney, with her stamp on the rear turn-in an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dold and Dold (photographers)
Little River Redwood Company [1920s], Crannell, CA. 14 5 by 7 inch sepia-tone photographs, most often seen as postcards. These larger-format images are quite uncommon. The promotional images document logging operations in the redwood forest north of Eureka, on the California coast. Crannell, the company town than supported the logging operation, no longer exists. Two of the views show logging camps (Camps 7 and 8); a third shows a logging railroad. Fine, or nearly so. Exposure a bit light, wiht minor silvering to the prints.

Beck'sche Verlagsbuchhandlung / Oskar Beck, Münich, 1920 "The outlook for western civilization, to Spengler, is gloomy. The end is at hand. Democracy, the typical product of western civilization, will be wiped out by caesaren autocracy. The tremendous success of the book among the semi-literate, especially in Germany and America, during the period after the First World War, is a politico- sociological phenomenon that has nothing to do with the intrinsic merits or demerits of this 'new outlook on history and the philosophy of destiny', as the author himself described the aim of his book . It was the major prophet, Toynbee, who took up the mantle that fell from the minor prophet, Spengler" - Printing and the Mind of Man. The first volume (first published under another imprint in 1918), is here denoted the "dreiunddreissigste bis siebenundvierzigste völlig umgestaltete auflage," and the second "einundreissigste bis siebzigstes auflage einundfünfzigstes bis siebzigstes tausend."

Matisse, Henri
Les Soins de l'Artiste, Paris, 1920. First edition of Matisse's classic self-produced suite of 50 photo-lithographic reproductions of his drawings of women. Quarto, original wrappers as issued, with an original frontispiece etching of a woman's face. One of only 1000 copies produced, this is number 908. Signed by Matisse below the original frontispiece etching, "Henri Matisse." Fine in a fine dust jacket. Rare and desirable signed and in the original jacket. Matisse himself edited and printed this exquisite suite of 50 photo-lithographic reproductions of his drawings of women to accompany a 1920 exhibition of his work. "Daily painting sessions alternated with hours on end devoted to drawing, a corrective Matisse would use from now on whenever he felt his work was in danger of losing its balance between color and feeling on the one hand, and line and form on the other. He returned over and over again to a lace collar, drawing it first in minute detail until he had got it by heart and could translated it at will with two swift lines 'into an ornament, an arabesque, without losing the character of lace, and of that particular lace'. Matisse was evolving methods he would use for the rest of his life. He published fifty of these drawings in a portfolio called Cinquante Dessins to coincide with his exhibition at Bernheim-Jeune in 1920. A surge of renewed energy pulses between the lines of the letters he wrote home as he drew them" (Spurling, 225-26). [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]

Evans, C[harles] S[eddon]; Rackham, Arthur (Illustrations)
London: William Heinemann, (1920). Rackham, Arthur. First Edition. First trade edition, octavo size, 111 pp., in a custom binding by Katharine Pountney. One of the most beloved fairy tales of all time, "Sleeping Beauty" (sometimes titled "Little Briar Rose") was originally published by Giambattista Basile (1566-1632) in his "The Pentamerone" published posthumously in 1634, based on a tale of which our earliest traces date back to the 1330s or 1340s. Basile's version was later adapted and published by Charles Perrault in 1697, upon which the Brothers Grimm based their story. Therefore, when Charles Seddon Evans (1883-1944), of the publishing firm of William Heinemann, decided to edit the story to enable the inimitable Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) to have more text for his wonderful silhouette illustrations, he was going down a pathway already well-trodden. He described the feasts and discussed in detail the prince's attempts to prevent the evil spell, in order to make the story less violent and thus more acceptable to "modern" children and parents (n.b., from the "Quicklet on C.S. Evans's 'The Sleeping Beauty' " by Amber Larkins). While "Sleeping Beauty" only has one full-colour plate (the frontispiece), it is replete with Rackham's glorious silhouettes; with three double-page silhouette drawings with colour, two full-page silhouette drawings with colour, and six double and eight single-page silhouette drawings in black and white; it is also replete with in-text illustrations, and has lovely pictorial endpapers in green and white.

Stawell, Mrs. Rodolph; Dulac, Edmund (Illustrator)
London: Hodder and Stoughton Limited, [1920]. Dulac, Edmund. Quarto size, 169 pp., 8 color plates. Reprint of the new and enlarged edition of 1913, this published in 1920 with the same title page (other than the imprint) and the same number of colour plates; what distinguishes this edition from that of 1913 is the elaborate publisher's trade binding. While the bottom of the front board depicts the elf "Drop-of-Crystal" at work, taken from the illustration facing p. 86, the upper portion of the front board is a fantasia of hanging fuschias in pinks and blues, with green leaves, all above billowing clouds outlined with gilt; one of the most stunning trade bindings we have seen. Per Hughey, upon publication the book was received most favourably: " 'Fairies I have Met' was reviewed in Outlook in its Literary Supplement of New Children's Books, November 9, 1907. The reviewer spoke of the book as 'charmingly illustrated in colour by Edmund Dulac.' It would be hard to disagree. The new and enlarged edition of 1913 was reviewed most favorably in Church Times and Spectator. With pictures here, Dulac displays a style much more humorous and whimsical than that of his illustrations for the Bronte novels 2 years earlier. The subjects are painted at close range, in deep colours, creating bolder designs and showing much detail, as opposed to the distant misty room or landscape scenery of the Bronte work." The illustrations here are a bit transitional, as Dulac's later work, such as "The Arabian Nights" and the "Rubaiyat", become even more detailed and exquisite. ___DESCRIPTION: Original r … [Click Below for Full Description]

1920. Irish Fairy Tales Stephens Arthur Rackham Fine Leather Bayntun Binding. Found this at an estate sale, had a hard time finding anything about it. Saw the text on the second page and looked into it and saw another version that didn't quite look the same as this. This book has had* gilded page ends. Only the top of the pages are gilded now. When you open the book it looks like something was ripped off the cover page as there is still glue remains. I looked at other bonded books and that seems to be where they put signatures and whatnot. The pages are all still in great condition no writing or serious damage *just some discoloration near the ends of the pages, the binding/cover of the book has a few spots of damage as shown in the pictures. I looked to find a copyright date in the book and all I could find is 1920. This book didn't have a copyright date under it when it says copyright as shown in the photo. This is a really cool book.

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.

"Nova ex antiquis" diventa, infatti, il suo motto, che traduce la volontà di recupero del glorioso passato della tradizione tipografica italiana che, va ricordato, dopo Giovanni Bodoni, era caduta nel buio della decadenza tecnica (con una sempre maggiore dipendenza dall'estero per i macchinari, la carta e i caratteri) e stilistica.

BARBUSSE Henri
1920. Three hundred and twentieth thousand. 8vo., modern quarter brown morocco, original wrappers bound in. Paris, Ernest Flammarion. N.d. c. Inscribed by the author, ?A Madame von Winternitz-Zweig et aux femmes de coeur qui l'entourent [and to the courageous women who surround her] hommage dévoué Henri Barbusse? One of the greatest anti-war novels inscribed to Friderike Maria Winternitz Zweig, the first wife of Stefan Zweig, himself one of the most eloquent writers for peace in Europe. Friderike, who was indeed a femme de coeur, beautiful, strong-minded and intelligent, was already a writer when she met Stefan Zweig in 1908. By 1916 they were living together just outside Vienna, (in a diary entry for late 1916 Friderike writes: ?Today Stefan named me as his permanent 'top bunny'. I don't wish for anything more, and if he occasionally enjoys a subordinate bunny, that's fine by me . Just as long as I am always his top bunny?) and by 1919 were married, although in a bizarre detail of Austrian civil ceremony, Friderike did not have to be there at her own wedding, and sent a male representative instead. She continued her writing career as well as supporting him, for he was by choice incapable of doing much practical work. In the early 1930s he took up with his younger and less independent secretary (one wonders if Friderike would have lain down to die on the marital suicide bed in 1942, as did Lottie), and they were divorced in 1938. In 1917 Zweig published his Jeremiah, an explicitly pacifist play, dedicated to Friderike ?in profound gratitude?, and reviewed Le Feu in the Aust … [Click Below for Full Description]

Yezierska, Anzia
Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1920. First edition of Anzia Yezierska's rare first book. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by the Anzia Yezierska on the front free endpaper. Near fine with a trace of edge wear in a very good dust jacket with small chips and tears to the extremities. Rare signed and especially so in the original dust jacket. In stories that draw heavily on her own life, Anzia Yezierska portrays the immigrant's struggle to become a "real" American, in such stories as "Yekl," "Hunger," "The Fat of the Land," and "How I Found America." Set mostly in New York's Lower East Side, the stories brilliantly evoke the oppressive atmosphere of crowded streets and shabby tenements and lay bare the despair of families trapped in unspeakable poverty, working at demeaning jobs, and coping with the barely hidden prejudices of their new land.
