Nikisch, Arthur, Dirigent (1855?1922)
[Oslo], 1. Mai [um, 1920. 2 SS. 8vo. Papier etwas gebräunt und geknittert. Briefkopf des Grand Hotels Kristiania. An einen befreundeten Dirigenten namens Werner. ?Also ich habe mich hier sehr für Sie bemüht und Sie dem Vorstand der ?Filharmoniske Selskap? wärmstens empfohlen. Die Sache steht nun aber so: Eibenschütz hat hier sehr gefallen und ist engagirt, d.h. wenn es ihm gelingt, seinen Hamburger Vertrag zu lösen. Bis dahin ist nichts definitiv entschieden. Ich habe aber doch erreicht, dass die Herren mir fest versprochen, für den Fall dass die Kombination Eibenschütz scheitern sollte, in erster Linie Sie zum Probedirigiren einzuladen.? ? In Anbetracht, dass Eibenschütz 1921 die Leitung der Osloer Philharmonie übernahm, darf angenommen werden, dass Nikischs Fürsprache erfolglos blieb.

LEAL, Raul
Lisboa: [Rio de] Janeiro: Portvgalia [1920]. The only work of poetry by the openly gay amateur philosopher who joined Pessoa's circle of modernist writers in 1915. Leal is best known for his Sodoma Divinisada, published in 1923, but he also dabbled in the occult and was briefly involved with Aleister Crowley ("Met Leal. Don't like him. There's something definitely wrong about him." See Castro, Fernando Pessoa's Modernity Without Frontiers: Influences, Dialogues, Responses.) He was also involved for a time with Gabriele d'Annunzio and Filippo Marinetti and other "ultra- Futurists" and was the founder of a Paracletian Church, with himself as the self-designated Henoch, prophet of the Holy Ghost and Divine Paraclete. See da Silva, Ultra-Futurism, Occultism and Queer Politics. This collection of poems relates to the demonic powers and the force of darkness that became subjects of interest to the surrealists. Very good, light wear and yellowing to covers, spine is fragile with partial splitting, light spotting, photographic frontispiece of the author. Rare. [Attributes: First Edition]

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]

Einstein, Albert, trans. Robert W. Lawson
Methuen & Co, 1920. First edition (preceding the American edition, published by Henry Holt) of the authorized translation into English of a "popular exposition" of Einstein's theory of relativity in its two forms. An unusually good first-state dust-wrapper, albeit with some restorations to the extremities, for this title; altogether quite rare thus. Very good. Appendix III, published here for the first time, is the text of a letter written to Lawson about the experimental confirmation of the theory. With an ownership signature (Oxford, 1920) on the front paste-down. Einstein's theories of relativity mark the turning-point from Newtonian to modern physics. So substantial was their effect that an explanation "for the average reader" was thought necessary. Beginning with Euclidean geometry, Einstein - in Lawson's good modern English - takes us stewpise to a point of practical understanding of the revolution Einstein began in 1905, which carried us through the nuclear age and into the world of modern astronomy, with LIGO's confirmation of the principles of general relativity in 2015-2016 (the documentation of a gravitational wave caused by the merging of two black holes: the chirp heard 'round the world).

Mark Twain
New York: P.F. Collier, 1920. Complete in 25 volumes. Pictures of the entire set will be uploaded when I get a chance. Set has extensive and heavy abrasions, and chipping as shown. Chipping and fragile leather bindings. Internally in much better condition. Copyrights as late as 1920 or later. Set is not dated on the title pages. Set is complete with all 25 volumes. Twain in leather is scarce. THE COMPLETE WORKS OF MARK TWAIN. Complete in 25-volumes. Bound in the Publisher's leather bindings. Twain in leather is difficult to obtain. The Author's National Edition. Illustrated with frontisplates. Printed on quality paper. With large font. Gilded spines. The top edges are gilded. P. F. Collier and Son. No date on the title pages. Various copyrights up to 1920. 8 inches tall. 36.5 inches of shelf space. Twain's works in leather are difficult to obtain. This set is complete and intact but it does have wear: good to very poor condition only, and consistent with that book grade. There is significant abrasion to the leather, with some chipping and dirt/dust from the leather. They 'bleed' a little when held. Volume one has the largest chip, as shown. The hinges are all attached but there is some starting, some general rubs/wear/signs of usage, but complete and intact. These display beautifully. Some minor internal dirt but appears free of foxing. No writing. Somewhat pulverized and dusty but still very displayable. Antiquarian leather-bound sets of Mark Twain are difficult to obtain. This would make an excellent gift and/or addition to any fine library. In addition to their shelf pre … [Click Below for Full Description]

Anonym [d.i. Erich Lamm?]
Um, 1920. 15,5 x 13,5 cm. Auf Tafeln 24 x 34 cm. Die Folge erotischer Blätter ist bibliographisch nicht nachzuweisen. Sie ist aber offenbar so komplett, da der Polizeikatalog Polunbi 2 Verbote einer Mappe mit diesem Titel und derselben Tafelanzahl verzeichnet. Ein Deckblatt war offenbar nie vorhanden; der Titel ergibt sich aus einer Illustration, in der 'Alraune' in der Platte auftaucht. Dieses Blatt zeigt eine künstliche Befruchtung. Es ist offensichtlich, dass die Folge inspiriert ist von Hans Heinz Ewers Roman 'Alraune. Die Geschichte eines lebenden Wesens' (München 1913), der eben mit einer Befruchtungsszene beginnt. Die Geschichte, die deutlich voyeuristisch-reißerische Elemente der Zeit bediente, fand schon nach kurzer Zeit in großen Auflagen Verbreitung und wurde mehrfach verfilmt. Diese rare Illustrationsfolge zeigt diverse Sex-Szenen, teils ekstatisch, mit Katze, unter Drogen. Die Zuschreibung zu Lamm als Künstler ergibt sich aus gewissen Ähnlichkeiten zu seinem Mappenwerk 'Liebesstufenleiter'. Die Tafeln nur ganz leicht am Randberieben. Frisches Exemplar. Polunbi 9 ("unbrauchbar zu machen"). 2, 8 ("eingezogen"). Zu Ewers: Bilderlex. III, 358. [8 Warenabbildungen bei antiquariat.de]
