PAVLOVA, Anna 1881-1931] Knight, Dame Laura 1877-1970
- Sheet size 355 mm. x 218 mm. (14" x 8.5"). On laid paper. With preparatory sketch of a dancer (in all likelihood Pavlova) in fluid motion to verso.Provenance:Alister Mathews, art dealer in Bournemouth, England.Slightly worn and creased; small edge tear. The most celebrated dancer of her time, "[Pavlova's] technique was so perfect that it concealed technique. her arabesque and pas de bourrée have rarely been equaled, and. her line was always impeccable. As an interpretive artist Pavlova probably, even today, remains unsurpassed. She was supreme in roles requiring feminine coquetry and light comedy; she excelled in lyrical and poetic roles in which her fluid, expressive arms and hands were remarkable; and she could be deeply moving in dramatic and tragic roles such as Nikia and Giselle. What made her performances unique, however, was not so much her technical mastery or even her talent at characterization; it was the emotion she poured into her performances, her incomparable stage presence - in short, the power of her personality." The International Encyclopedia of Dance, Vol. 5, pp. 125-126. Laura Knight, the first female English artist to be elected to full membership in the Royal Academy. She is well-recognized for her work in the genre of ballet."During 1920 and 1921 Laura met, and painted backstage, some of the most famous ballet dancers of the day from Sergei Diaghilev's Ballet Russes. Her subjects included Lydia Lopokova, Anna Pavlova, and the dance teacher Enrico Cecchetti." Wikipedia.

[Applebee, Constance Mary Katherine].
Mt. Pocono, Pennsylvania And Brussels, Belgium. late 1920s-1935. 5” x 7�”. String-tied, patterned paper over boards. 92 pages with 163 black and white photographs adhesive mounted. Most photos measure 2�” x 3�”, a few are larger and around a third are captioned. Album good: heavy edge wear, patch of surface loss to front cover and lacking most of backstrip but still firmly held together by string tie; photos generally near fine. This album documents some of the efforts of a woman who was instrumental in the development of women's sports in the United States. Constance Applebee, a native of England, introduced field hockey to the United States in 1901. She co-founded the American Field Hockey Association, was the director of athletics for Bryn Mawr, and in 1924 created the first American magazine devoted to women's sports, The Sportswoman. In 1922, Applebee founded the Pocono Hockey Camp at Camp Tegawitha which was held each summer for the next 72 years and included top coaches from around the world. She also taught lacrosse at the camp and the U. S. Women's Lacrosse Association was founded there in 1931. This album begins at that camp, probably in the late 1920s and there are at least five photos of Applebee. In addition to portraits of the athletes and hockey and lacrosse shots, the women are seen rowing, engaged in archery, riding horses and simply having fun. There's a photo of Anne Pugh, captain of the women's lacrosse national team in 1934, and for whom the eponymous Bryn Mawr Award for Athletic Excellence, Sportsmanship and Leadership is named.

Fitzgerald, F Scott
New York: Scribner's, 1920. Original green cloth. Near fine. Half morocco case. FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING. Fitzgerald's first novel, one of only 3000 copies. Presentation copy inscribed on the title page: "For Kenneth Brightbill from F. Scott Fitzgerald April 30th, 1921." Brightbill and Fitzgerald seem likely to have been classmates, perhaps at the Newman School in New Jersey. Fitzgerald inscribed several of his early books to Brightbill. This Side of Paradise, "when it was first published was considered a revelation of new morality of the young in the early Jazz Age; and it made Fitzgerald famous. The novel's hero, Amory Blaine, is a handsome, spoiled young man who attends Princeton, becomes involved in literary activities and has several ill-fated romances. A portrait of the Lost Generation, the novel addresses Fitzgerald's later theme of love distorted by social climbing and greed" (Merriam-Webster's Encyclopedia of Literature) Fitzgerald was still at university when he submitted the manuscript, then titled The Romantic Egoist, Scribner's. This Side of Paradise was published on 26 March 1920. An immediate success, the book went through fourteen printings by 1922, helping to launch Fitzgerald's literary career. The public loved the book, but the president of Princeton was not as pleased. John Grier Hibben wrote, "I cannot bear to think that our young men are merely living four years in a country club and spending their lives wholly in a spirit of calculation and snobbishness." This is an excellent early Fitzgerald presentation copy.

PAVLOVA, Anna 1881-1931] Knight, Dame Laura 1877-1970
- Sheet size 355 mm. x 218 mm. (14" x 8.5"). On laid paper. With preparatory sketch of a dancer (in all likelihood Pavlova) in fluid motion to verso.Provenance:Alister Mathews, art dealer in Bournemouth, England.Slightly worn and creased; small edge tear. The most celebrated dancer of her time, "[Pavlova's] technique was so perfect that it concealed technique. her arabesque and pas de bourrée have rarely been equaled, and. her line was always impeccable. As an interpretive artist Pavlova probably, even today, remains unsurpassed. She was supreme in roles requiring feminine coquetry and light comedy; she excelled in lyrical and poetic roles in which her fluid, expressive arms and hands were remarkable; and she could be deeply moving in dramatic and tragic roles such as Nikia and Giselle. What made her performances unique, however, was not so much her technical mastery or even her talent at characterization; it was the emotion she poured into her performances, her incomparable stage presence - in short, the power of her personality." The International Encyclopedia of Dance, Vol. 5, pp. 125-126. Laura Knight, the first female English artist to be elected to full membership in the Royal Academy. She is well-recognized for her work in the genre of ballet."During 1920 and 1921 Laura met, and painted backstage, some of the most famous ballet dancers of the day from Sergei Diaghilev's Ballet Russes. Her subjects included Lydia Lopokova, Anna Pavlova, and the dance teacher Enrico Cecchetti." Wikipedia.

ANONYME, pour LUCIEN LELONG.
Sans lieu (Paris),sans éditeur, (dessins originaux) sans date (années 1920).27 x 13,5 cm. Feuilles libres. 73 pièces. Exceptionnel ensemble de 73 dessins originaux de mode réalisés dans les années 1920 pour la maison LUCIEN LELONG. Chaque croquis a été exécuté sur papier O.C.F. Deluz Register C., et mesure environ : 27x13,5 cm. Il sagit du travail dun dessinateur employé par les plus grandes Maison de Haute Couture parisiennes des années 1920 (CHANEL, PATOU, LANVIN, LELONG, DOUCET, VIONNET, MOLYNEUX, CHERUIT, PAQUIN, PREMET, JENNY, PIGUET, WORTH, ROLANDE, MILLER, DRECOLL, BOULANGER, RENEE, MADELEINE & MADELEINE, etc.) . Le « G » au crayon, dans langle supérieur droit des dessins, correspond à lidentification qui lui permet dobtenir sa rémunération. Comme souvent à lépoque, la silhouette des modèles est ronéotypée, mais le vêtement est dessiné à la plume puis finement rehaussé à la gouache et à laquarelle. Ces croquis servent de guide technique aux artisans chargés ensuite de la réalisation du modèle au sein des ateliers. Dans langle inférieur gauche ou au dos des dessins figure également le nom « codé » de la Maison à laquelle ils sont destinés (ici "LL", "L Le", "Le" ou "Le Lelon" pour Lucien Lelong). Ce type de modèles est luvre de dessinateurs-créateurs aux talents desquels recourent la majorité des grands couturiers des années folles, soit parce que, comme Chanel, ils ne dessinent pas eux-mêmes, soit parce que lampleur des collections bisannuelles dalors (300 à 400 modèles !) nécessite le concours dhommes didées et dartistes restés dans lombre de ces … [Click Below for Full Description]

Binding, Karl und Alfred Hoche:
Leipzig Meiner, 1920 - EA des Werkes, in dem der Psychiater Hoche (1865-1943) und der Jurist Binding (1841-1920) erstmals explizit begründen, daß die Tötung von behinderten oder kranken Menschen - von ihnen als "Ballastexistenzen" bezeichnet - gerechtfertigt sei. Binding stellt den toten Soldaten des 1. Weltkriegs in demagogischer Weise die "lebenden Insassen.der Idioteninstitute" gegenüber, die den Anspruch auf gesellschaftlichen Schutz verloren hätten, und Hoche erklärt Kranke und Behinderte zu "leeren Menschenhüllen". Die Schrift hat den Boden weiter bereitet für die Tötungsaktionen der Nazis von psychisch Kranken und Behinderten. Aus den Schlussbemerkungen: "Es gab eine Zeit, die wir jetzt als barbarisch betrachten, in der die Beseitigung der lebensunfähig Geborenen oder Gewordenen selbstverständlich war; dann kam die jetzt noch laufende Phase, in welcher schliesslich die Erhaltung jeder noch so wertlosen Existenz als höchste sittliche Forderung galt; eine neue Zeit wird kommen, die von dem Standpunkte einer höheren Sittlichkeit aus aufhören wird, die Forderungen eines überspannten Humanitätsbegriffes und einer Überschätzung des Wertes der Existenz schlechthin mit schweren Opfern dauernd in die Tat umzusetzen". - sehr seltene EA in bemerkenswert gutem Erhaltungszustand!

EINSTEIN, ALBERT. ORIGINAL PHOTOGRAPH WITH CUT SIGNATURE OF EINSTEIN; SILVER GELATIN PRINT BY E.O. HOPPÉ
Circa early 1920s. A splendid, crisp black and white silver gelatin photograph of Albert Einstein, measuring 6.5 " x 8". Sharp focus and wonderful facial tones. In its original wooden frame secured with tiny, rusted nails along the back borders. Einstein has a quizzical, almost bemused look, and his hair is somewhat untamed as usual. With a cut signature "A. Einstein" from the end of a letter which shows some typed letters on the verso. Albert Einstein (1879 ñ 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist. Einstein developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics). Einstein's work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. Einstein is best known by the general public for his massñenergy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation"). He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the evolution of quantum theory. (Wikipedia) . Emil Otto Hoppé (1878 ñ1972) was a German-born British portrait, travel, and topographic photographer active between 1907 and 1945. Born to a wealthy family in Munich, he moved to London in 1900 to train as a financier, but took up photography and rapidly achieved great success. He was the only son of a prominent banker, and was educated in the finest schools of Munich, Paris andVienna. Upon leaving school he served apprenticeships in German banks for ten years, before accepting a position with the Shanghai Ba … [Click Below for Full Description]
