Arturo Toscanini
Milan, New York etc: NBC, etc, 1920 Book. Very Good. No Binding. [100 photos] Substantial collection of vintage photographs of the Italian-American conductor, Arturo Toscanini. In a variety of formats, many of the photographs with press stamps and annotations to the verso explaining the circumstances of the images. Toscanini is shown on and off the podium, travelling to Capri in 1929, arriving in New York City; with friends, family and dignitaries, on tour at home, indefatigable and finally 'laying in state' in 1957. Some of the most moving photographs come from a sequence of smaller images showing the maestro rehearsing in old age, taken from behind the orchestra as the old man studies his score and exhorts his players to ever great efforts. Toscanini's long career brought him to a worldwide audience especially after the NBC Symphony Orchestra was created as a vehicle for his talents in 1937. This collection conveys some sense of the range and scope of a remarkable life. Please contact Christian White at Modernfirsteditions if you would like more details..

Noguchi, Yone
Orientalia, New York, 1920. A very handsome, signed Limited Edition (500 copies) volume of 50 poems, size: 5" by 7.5", unpaginated with decorative hand-sewn thread binding and patterned paper wrappers, contained within a blue folding cloth board, with printed paper label, and closed with two white bone clasps. 2nd edition. **** Yonejiro Noguchi (1875-1947) was the first Japanese writer to publish both in English and Japanese, including poetry, literary criticism, journalism and diary-like novels. He published under the first name Yone in his English works. This is the second edition of the first book of poems he published in English in 1897. He was a well-educated Japanese immigrant to the San Francisco area in the 1890's, and was influenced by the bohemian circle of artists and writers living there, finding vocation as a poet even as he worked as a domestic servant to survive. He was said to have significantly interpreted the two cultures to one another at a time before the onset of the Second World War. His later conversion from liberal socialist to nationalist apologist is a contentious issue among scholars of his works.(Cipris, The Asia-Pacific Journal, Nov. 2007) As an artist, however, he travelled and lectured widely on the haiku form of poetry. First, extensively within the United States, where his ideas influenced modernist writers such as Ezra Pound. Travelling to England, he lectured at Oxford, and came into contact with William Michael Rossetti, William Butler Yeats, Thomas Hardy and Laurence Houseman. He returned to Japan, via Berlin and Moscow, in 1904 and cont … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

New York: Duffield & Company, 1920. Book. Octavo (8vo). Signed by Author(s). [iv], 213 pages of text. Original tan cloth binding is moderately to heavily soiled and rubbed, with minor fraying to the spine extremities, and minor bumping to the corners. No dustjacket, but protected in custom stiff archival mylar. Signed and inscribed by the author on the front endpaper "Only the sinner knows that there is no sin [signed] Clarence Darrow To Chas Mason Chicago Oct 13th 1920." Inscribed to Bishop Charles Harrison Mason, founder of the Church of God in Christ, the largest Pentecostal church denomination and one of the largest predominantly African-American Christian denominations in the United States.

Mason was jailed at Lexington, Mississippi, for allegedly preaching against the war, although he sold bonds to help the war efforts. William B. Holt, one of the white brethren targeted by the FBI for suspicion, was a lawyer and former Nazarene preacher who traveled to Lexington to post a two-thousand dollar cash bond for Mason's release. Good+ condition. [Attributes … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

He wears a bamboo hat and holds a red and white Dahlia in his right hand and looks up at would-be buyers. Identical to a luggage label for a similar hotel in Hong Kong of the same period. This example does not have his usual signature in the lower left corner as other identical examples do.

BLACK AMERICANA)
Seattle.: Fisher Flour., No date. Ca. 1920. Seattle.: Fisher Flour.. No date. Ca. 1920.. Illustrated booklet 5.5 x 3.25 inches; 8 pp (including covers) that tells the story of the African-American child who, in adulthood, became the visual personification of a Seattle, Washington firm, Fisher's "Blend Flour." Some lettering on front cover abraded; contents in very good condition. One copy located at the John W. Hartman Center at Duke University. The story, told in verse and illustrated with cartoon images, relates how "a little Pickinny" began a life of wandering. "I's a skinny little nigger, But I showily likes to roam, So Uh'll start right now to figure How to git away from home." He hops a freight and takes in city after city, eventually winding up in Seattle--no longer skinny and over 6 foot tall. He is found sweeping out a store by the Fisher Brothers "who owned the big flour mill that grinds for countless others"; they turn him into the company icon--a massive figure who "simply rolls in fat." His story concludes as follows: "His name is now 'BLEND FLOUR' as the Fishers have arranged; So here's good luck and power to the coon BLEND FLOUR changed." The Fishers transitioned from flour to radio station ownership in the 1920s; they are today Fisher Communications with headquarters in Seattle. "A Wandering Story" is an uncommon ephemeral item utilizing the exploitive negative racial stereotypes frequently found in American advertising of the early 20th century. .

Nachdem er bis 1925 Zeichnungen, Graphik in mehreren Techniken und Mappenwerke geschaffen hatte, ging mit diesem Jahr seine künstlerische Tätigkeit abrupt zu Ende. Er war Mitglied des Künstlerhauses, Wien und erhielt 1919 den Dumba-Preis, gen. Nach dem österreichischen Kunstmäzen Nikolaus Dumba (1830-1900).
