LeSesne, R. [Richard] H. [Habersham]
R. H. LeSesne, Daytona Beach, Florida, 1920. 9 1/2 x 7 1/2 inches Haberle-tone (Orotone) in original gesso-decorated gilded frame. Original sealing paper backing, largely chipped and torn, yet unopened, 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.

München und Wiesbaden: J. F. Bergmann, 1920. First edition. Softcover. g to vg. Duodecimo. 16pp. booklet, 15 plates. Original slipcase with decorative stiff wraps and black lettering on pasted down label of cover, containing a booklet and 15 plates.The brain-scull-topography depicted in this publication are photographs taken with a Zeiss Protar Lens. The images represent models which where produced during examination. They were molded from compounds or gained by plastic reconstruction when unable to be dissected. The models are true-to-life, about one quarter of the natural size of the objects, and are best viewed with a Zeiss Lens Stereoscope.A regular prism stereoscope produces a slightly exaggerated depth. Stereoscopic pictures are better suited to illustrate form and positioning of complicated structures than regular photographs, they are true-to-life, not schematized. The enclosed booklet provides a description of the objects photographed and is illustrated with three in-text drawings. The fifteen plates (5 1/4 x 7"), stereoscopic photographs (2 3/4 x 5") pasted down, depict various parts of the dissected head with detailed printed descriptions for each object.Text in German. Slipcase with wear along edges, small chips and minor fraying. Spine partially cracked at front joint. Slipcase rubbed with light staining to cover label. Booklet with light foxing to covers. Light foxing to plates, not affecting images. Overall in good, photographs in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition]

HUDSON HILL PRESS, 1920. Condition: Like New. THE BOOK IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, THE DUST JACKET INTACT AND THE PAGES CLEAN AND UNMARKED. IT IS A DUPLICATE OF A BOOK I HAVE AND AM SELLING THIS ONE WHICH WAS SELDOM OPENED. JULES LELEU IS ONE OF THE GREAT MASTERS OF FRENCH ART DECO. THIS IS THE BEST COMPILATION OF HIS WORK INCLUDING HIS DESIGNS FOR THE LUXURY LINERS. "The definitive work on this French decorating house that played a key role in the history of twentieth-century interior design. The firm's reach extended from the '50s style of Cap d'Antibes, to the grand salons of the League of Nations in Geneva, to New York, where Leleu had a shop on East 57th Street for many years. The house was also a major creative force behind many of the great French ocean liners that served as floating monuments to French art, taste and savoir vivre, including the legendary Normandie in the '30s. The house of Leleu, and the family behind it, came to prominence as key protagonists of the Art Deco style in 1920s Paris, as contemporaries and competitors of Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann. Uniquely among the masters of that era, it continued as a creative and productive force for 50 years. The Leleu style, synonymous with refinement, luxury and quality, was expressed in a range that included furniture, textiles, carpets and wallpaper, and in commissions for the decoration of exquisite private homes, embassies, institutions and offices around the world. This comprehensive work covering an icon of the decorative arts was organized by Francoise Siriex, a decorator at Leleu from 1950 until its closing … [Click Below for Full Description]

Photographs.
1920. xx. This is a collection of 340 gelatin silver prints, in 5 x 7 format, of a safari undertaken by an American, probably in the 1920s. The photographs are no longer in any particular order, but through them we can trace the Great White Hunter's progress through the Suez Canal, down the Red Sea to Mombasa Kenya, up to Nairobi, then into the Serengeti on a hunting expedition organized by a travel company called Safariland. He was a bespectacled, jowly fellow, who appears in photographs taken at many different locations. There are also dozens of photos of street life and buildings in African cities and villages (as well as several scenes from Genoa, Italy, where the Great White Hunter apparently stopped enroute to Africa.) About 150 photographs document the slaughter that marked the climax of the expedition. The Great White Hunter, other whites, and African bearers pose with zebra, African buffalo, various species of African antelope, cheetah, rhino, game birds, and smaller game. One particularly horrific series of 22 photos documents the killing and dismemberment of an elephant, the Great White Hunter proudly posing at the end with two sets of tusks. Only two of the photos contain any clues as to the man's identity. One is an image of the American sculptor Frank Tolles Chamberlain inscribed to a "Mr. Lincoln." The second is a print measuring 6 x 2 1/2 inches (the only one in the collection not in 5 x 7 format. The back of the print is stamped, "Copyright. New Crystal Finish. The Owl. Lewiston Maine." Owl is a chain of drug stores operating in Maine since the 1800s. All t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Signed by Rackham, as issued, on a preliminary page. *** This copy has some chipping and a bit of loss at the spine ends.

Nikolai Punin and Kazimir Malevich
Sovremennoe iskusstvo, Petrograd, 1920. Nikolai Punin (1888-1953) was one of the most articulate Soviet art critics who strongly advocated Constructivism. After the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, Punin edited such important publications as Iskusstvo Kommuny and Izobrazitel'noe iskusstvo. Writing for major Russian periodicals, Punin also joined the Petrograd Visual Arts Department (IZO) of the People's Commissariat of Enlightenment (Narkompros) in 1917. In this series of lectures, delivered in 1919, he condemned the "decadent" art of the past. From the mid-1920s, Punin had an affair with the famous Russian poet Anna Akhmatova. He was repeatedly investigated and arrested by the Soviet secret police; finally after World War II, in 1949, he was arrested and sent to Siberia, where he died at Vorkuta in 1953. The front and back cover of the book feature Suprematist designs by the Russian avant-garde artist Kazimir Malevich; they exemplify his experiments in non-objective art. The book had been restored in Soviet period (The spine had been fixed with adhesive tape and the block had been trimmed). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

[DOYLE, Arthur Conan] STARRETT, Vincent (1886-1974)
Chicago, IL: Privately Printed for the Friends of Walter M. Hill, Christmas 1920. [Crime fiction] FIRST EDITION. Slim octavo (20 x 15cm), pp.39; [1], blank. Bound in publisher's mustard-coloured textured paper over boards with printed title label to spine, Japanese vellum endpapers, edges uncut, original off-white tissue jacket. Internally fine, covers fractionally bowed, a little wear/chipping to fragile jacket but overall an exceptionally well-preserved copy of a particularly scarce item. In this brilliant Sherlockian pastiche, which crime writer Ellery Queen claimed was one of the best ever written, Holmes investigates the disappearance of a rare copy of Shakespeare's famous play. Reportedly 100 copies were published for Bookseller Walter M Hill and 10 copies stated 'For the friends of Vincent Starrett'. Leading authority Randall Stack conducted a census in 2013 and records 51 surviving copies (both imprints combined), of which 24 copies are held in libraries. He described the book as "probably the most valuable Holmes story not written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle" DeWaal 5195 (erroneously listing print run as 43 copies).

1920. Noyau de Poissy is one of the oldest liqueurs, and has enjoyed popularity since the 18th century. The beverage is produced by macerating apricots, almonds and spices in cognac, but the rest of the recipe is a closely guarded secret. It is served as an aperitif, mixed in cocktails, or added to desserts. It is considered a French classic. This vintage poster for the brand was created circa 1920 by the French illustrator René Feuillie. This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction.

Valley Ranch, 1920. Near fine.. 31,[1]pp. Original brown pictorial printed wrappers, stapled. Very minor wear and soiling. Promotional work for the Valley Ranch, a dude ranch on the Pecos River, near Santa Fe, New Mexico. The work is illustrated throughout with handsome gravure illustrations, the whole printed in sepia ink. Situated in the midst of the Pecos National Forest, the ranch boasted extensive fishing and trail riding, as well as sweeping vistas. It also had a swimming pool, tennis courts, a post office, telephone and telegraph, and electricity. "The Valley Ranch has a well earned reputation for setting a splendid table. The cooking is done by Americans, in American style, but the bill of fare often includes some appetizing Mexican dishes -- frijoles, tortillas, chili con carni, etc. -- for those of cosmopolitan tastes." A high-quality piece of printing and promotion. We locate four copies in OCLC, at Princeton, the University of Arizona, Arizona Historical, and New Mexico State University.

Internally the hinges are restored and strong, the pastedowns are the usual darker yellow , part of the front right is a bit darker than the rest but internally a wonderful book, with clean white pages, tightly bound and an excellent photoplate.

Published: Milan, IL; Rail Splitter Press, Binding: Condition: (please see full item description for details) Description: Sixteen pamphlets in original wrappers, averaging around 40 pp each, some with illustrations; all in very good condition, most quite scarce. William Lloyd Clark was a venomous anti-Catholic who founded the Rail Splitter Press to publish tracts, handbills, and postcards elaborating his views and those of like-minded individuals. He proudly claimed to stock "every book of value that is in print dealing with the Roman Catholic menace to our liberties and our free institutions." The pamphlets in this collection cover the standard anti-Catholic tropes (lascivious and druken priests, politicians in thrall to the Pope, etc.) and also focus on specific political concerns -- among them President Harding's "betrayal of the Protestant cause" (by appointing Catholics to various positions within his administration) and the election of 1928, in which Democrat Al Smith was the first Catholic major-party candidate for President of the United States Titles include: Crimes of Priests; Washington in the Grasp of Rome; The Menace of Al Smith; The Devil's Prayer Book, or an Exposure of Auricular Confession as Practiced by the Roman Catholic Church, An Eye-Opener for Husbands, Fathers, and Brothers; The Open Door to Hell; Roman Oaths and Papal Curses; A Kentucky Hell; An Open Letter to President Harding; The Horrible Fate of Victor La … [Click Below for Full Description]
