Friedrich von Bezold u.a.:
Bonn, Verlag Marcus & Weber und Friedrich Cohen Verlag, 1920 / 1933. Vollständige Ausgabe in 2 schweren Handeinbänden der Zeit: 2 x echter Halbfranzband (Halbleder / HLdr) gr.8vo im Format 20 x 29 cm jeweils mit braunem Maroquin-Lederrücken, kräftig genarbtes Ziegenleder, handgestochenes Kopfband, Rückentitel und -verzierung in Goldprägung, geheftet auf 4 Doppelbünde, Deckelbezug mit farbigem Handmarmorpapier, Linienverzierung des Einbandleders in Goldprägung, Lederhäubchen, Lederecken sowie Kopfgoldschnitt, VIII+467 / IX+535 Seiten, der zweite Band mit sieben Seiten Fotoabbildungen auf Kunstdruckpapier (Bonner Universitätsgebäude und Einzelheiten davon). - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ei … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dieses Charleston Kleid besteht aus zweifarbigem (dunkelbraun und schwarz) Georgette und mehreren Schichten. Durch die feine Textur des Stoffes und die vielen Perlen ist das Kleid relativ schwer und hat natürlich einige Löcher, die also nicht durch Motten verursacht wurden. Einige der Löcher wurden repariert. Es fehlen auch einige Steine und Perlen. Es gibt spezialisierte Unternehmen, die sich auf die Restaurierung historischer Kleidung spezialisiert haben und die das Kleidungsstück professionell restaurieren können. Es fehlen auch einige Steine und Perlen. Das Kleid ist handgenäht und jede Perle ist ebenfalls von Hand appliziert. Ein Meisterwerk!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MILHAUD, Darius 1892-1974
1920. Signed by the artist with initials and with the composer's name to upper right corner. Undated, but most probably Vienna, ca. 1920. Executed in black pencil on the blank side of a sheet of stationery carrying the letterhead of Universal Edition in Vienna. 286 x 222 mm. "[Milhaud] was associated with the avant garde of the 1920s, whose abundant production reflects all musical genres. A pioneer in the use of percussion, polytonality, jazz and aleatory techniques, his music allies lyricism with often complex harmonies. Though his sources of inspiration were many and varied, his music has compelling stylistic unity." Jeremy Drake in Grove Music Online. Dolbin (pseud. Fred Pollack, 1883-1971) was born in Vienna and educated there. Trained as an engineer, he subsequently studied musical composition with Arnold Schoenberg and became a member of the Viennese group "Die Bewegung." He commenced drawing portraits of leading artistic personalities from ca. 1917 onwards for Viennese newspapers and journals. Because of his Jewish origins, Dolbin's work was banned in Austria in 1935, at which time he emigrated to the United States. Item #23257. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

LEHÁR, Franz 1870-1948
[Vienna]: [ca. 1920]. The composer is depicted in profile, wearing collar and tie. Executed in pen and ink and black chalk on a light yellow background wash. 343 x 250 mm. "[Lehár] was the leading operetta composer of the 20th century, being primarily responsible for giving the genre renewed vitality. His most successful operetta, Die lustige Witwe, has established a lasting place in the opera as well as the operetta repertory and, along with Offenbach and Johann Strauss II, Lehár has remained one of the most popular composers of light music." Andrew Lamb in Grove Music Online. Dolbin (pseud. Fred Pollack, 1883-1971) was born in Vienna and studied there. Trained as an engineer, he subsequently studied musical composition with Arnold Schoenberg and became a member of the Viennese group "Die Bewegung."

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.

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]

EINSTEIN, Albert
London: Methuen & Co. Ltd, 1920. London: Methuen & Co. Ltd,, 1920. Octavo. Original red cloth, spine lettered in black, front cover lettered in blind. With 8 pages of inserted advertisements. Portrait frontispiece of author by Hermann Struck, diagrams, figures and equations in text. Spine faded, spine ends bumped and a little frayed, tips slightly worn, mark to front board, front inner hinge cracked but holding, rear hinge starting, contents slightly foxed. A good copy. First edition in English, first impression, translated from the third German edition (1918) by Robert W. Lawson. This is the first appearance of any of Einstein's works in English. The additional chapter (Appendix III) written by Einstein for this edition was added at Lawson's urging, who thought the book would be more accessible if its author could provide a proof of the general theory. Einstein intended the book to be intelligible to the general public, which he tested by reading drafts to his step-daughter Margot, "pausing frequently to ask whether she indeed got it" (Isaacson).

Eskildsen, John Peter. [Texas]
[McAllen, Tx, 1920. Very good.. Ten original photographs, each 5 x 7 inches. Light wear at edges. Captioned in negative. Contemporary pencil initials on versos. A rare group of ten original photographs by early 20th-century Texas photographer John Peter Esklidsen, who worked in the Rio Grande Valley in the 1910s and 1920s. The photographs present here were commercially produced by the Eskildsen Studio of McAllen, Texas, and perfectly showcase the boomtown flavor of the Valley in the 1920s. They show bountiful fields of cabbage, alfalfa, and onions (and in one case, the African American laborers who made it all possible), a grapefruit tree bent to the ground under the weight of its abundant fruit, fields of grass-fed pigs and dairy cattle, a newly built farm house captioned "New Eden," and a major irrigation canal. The images are titled in the negatives as follows: 1. Grapefruit in the Dr. Kalbfleisch Orchard. 2. A Magic Valley Cabbage Field. 3. 100 Rhodes-Grass Raised Duroc-Jerseys in the Bruce Young Farm. San Juan Tex. 4. Irrigating Cabbage and Onions in the Valley. 5. Mercedes. Main Canal. 6. Llano Grand Lake and Stewart Club House. 7. 5th Cutting Alfalfa on the Johnson Farm, June 17, '20. 8. Dairy Herd in Sudan Grass - Rio Grande Valley. 9. A Farm in the Valley. 10. "New Eden" - The 6 Months Old Lentz Farm House. We locate a few individual prints by Eskildsen in the photo collections of UT Rio Grande Valley and SMU, none present here.

Kollwitz, Kathe
Emil Richter, Dresden, 1920. Elephant folio, portfolio published by Emil Richter portfolio heavily worn - in fair condition, contents are prints mounted on white cards plates present (lacking or less perefect) are: (1-3 lacking) 4,5,6,7,8 (present but detached from card with one corner stuck to card) ,9,10,11 (12 lacking print but card present) 13, 14, 15,16 (17, 18 lacking) , 19, 20, 21,22, 23, 24 . Thus 18 or 24 expected are present. Number at corner of the one identified as 22 is lacking, so this one is a guess that it is actually 22. Some images are signed and some are not- some appear to be printed but a few look like pencil signatures added to the prints- presumably by Kollwitz. The images are in good to very good condition, there may be short closed tears at edges with only 8 having a very small piece detached but stuck to its board. Note that there are shadows in the on-line pictures that are not in the actual prints. There are no printed or written pages in the portfolio nor any attached to the portfolio. There are some remnants of paper on the front cover. A Tiltle page is expected, but also lacking. No owner names or bookplates noted inside. Note, due to size and weight, shipping outside the USA or priority shipping will be more expensive than an average book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

G. Buccaro
1920. In the post-World War I era, the nations of Europe who had participated in the war effort were undergoing efforts to rebuild and revitalize their economy as they transitioned away from wartime. In this Italian poster created in 1920 by the artist Buccaro, we see the woman (perhaps symbolizing Italy) indicating to the gentleman, "The Work, Here is Your New Job". The text then continues, "to ensure its beneficial increase, subscribe to The National Loan". It is a strong message of determination indicating to the gentleman that the factories and industries of Italy are on their way to rebuilding thanks to the National Loan. This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.

Cigar manufacturers would often produce single bands and sets featuring full color portraits of prominent political and royal figures often gilt in real gold. The 'Golden Age of cigar label art, between 1880 and 1930 saw production of label art by nearly 300,000 brands. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
