        Two original birthday card drawings of young women

      n.p., 1921. Pen and ink, watercolor and gilt on vellum, both signed "R. Painton" and inscribed "To ADA/DICK/NOV XXII/MXMXIX [sic]" and "AD/ADA/NOV XXII - MCMXXI". 1 vols. 9-1/4 x 6-1/8 and 8-3/8 x 5-1/2 in. Very good. Painton, R. Pen and ink, watercolor and gilt on vellum, both signed "R. Painton" and inscribed "To ADA/DICK/NOV XXII/MXMXIX [sic]" and "AD/ADA/NOV XXII - MCMXXI". 1 vols. 9-1/4 x 6-1/8 and 8-3/8 x 5-1/2 in. Original Drawings on Vellum. These drawings were apparently presented as birthday cards by the artist to a woman named Ada - each is inscribed with the same month and date (November 22nd) but in different years. The initial "R" most likely stands for Richard, as the artist has signed the first drawing "Dick"

        Eggs-A-Cook!' The Story of the Forty-Fourth. War - as the Digger Saw It ['as the Digger Fought It' (cover subtitle)]

      Colortype Press, Perth 1921 - Octavo, [vi], ii, [9]-184 pages with a map and 30 pages of plates (including the frontispiece) plus 4 pages of plates (two each after pages 162 and 172 respectively); leaf 167-8 in the pagination is in fact a squat double-page centrespread facsimile document, verso blank. Original overlapping green wrappers with the Battalion's colour patch, and the title in gilt in a large and decorative font, printed on the front panel; minor loss to the overlapping portions (only) of the covers have been expertly consolidated; occasional scattered light foxing; inoffensive tiny light stain to the leading margin of the last plate and the last handful of leaves; basically, an excellent copy of a most indifferent and fragile production. Very few copies could have survived in condition comparable to this one . . . and even if they did, they would have to be inscribed and signed by the author to upstage it. In the bottom left-hand corner of the frontispiece portrait of Captain Longmore, he has written in ink 'With compliments from C. Longmore 12.1.22'. The book is not identified as such, but it comes from the personal collection of Lieutenant-Colonel Alexander Thomas Paterson (1886-1950), Commanding Officer of the 39th Battalion AIF, and the author of that battalion's history. Dornbusch 323; Fielding and O'Neill, page 229; Trigellis-Smith 242. Please use the 'Ask Bookseller a Question' link below to confirm availability and postage charges.

        Eigenhändige Postkarte m. Unterschrift. 1 S. (Eichstätt) 5.XII.1919.

      1921 - 17x25 cm. (wohl erhalten). Ernst Toller (* 1. Dezember 1893 in Samotschin, Provinz Posen; + 22. Mai 1939 in New York), deutscher Schriftsteller. Offenbar aus der Untersuchungshaft an den Literaturkritiker Rudolf Kayser (1889-1964), später Redakteur der "Neuen Rundschau", in Berlin. ". Haben Sie die Güte, die 'Bordelle' sofort an Herrn Stößinger zu senden. Der Kalender ist bereits im Druck. Besten Gruß. - Ihr Ernst Toller. Ich wäre Ihnen dankbar, wenn Sie Erich Reiß veranlassen könnten, unserer Bibliothek einige Bücher zu schicken." - Felix Stößinger (1889-1954), wie Toller Mitglied der USPD, war als sozialistischer Verleger in Berlin tätig; anscheinend handelte es sich bei den "Bordellen" um ein Manuskript Tollers, das Stößinger in einem von ihm herausgegebenen Kalender abdrucken sollte. - Wegen seiner aktiven Teilnahme am Münchener Umsturz wurde Toller wegen Hochverrats zu Festungshaft verurteilt, die er am 3. Februar 1920 in Niederschönenfeld antrat. Karte

        A collection of 14 important autograph letters to the German soprano Rose Ader, Puccini's "last love and the only consolation in my life." 30 pp. in total. Written between May 20, 1921 and September 11, 1924, the letters chart the progress of both the couple's love affair and Puccini's final opera, Turandot, which he never completed. Puccini died on November 29, 1924, less than three months after the final letter in this collection was written. With much revealing commentary regarding both the composer's personal and musical activities and offering new insight into his relationship with Ms. Ader

      - Letter 12 pp. Octavo. Dated Torre del Lago, May 20, [19]21, 11:00 p.m. On stationery with "Torre del Lago Toscana" embossed at head. Incomplete. With autograph envelope postmarked Torre de Lago, May 21, 1921 with Ader's name and Hamburg address. Puccini laments his inability to be near Ader; he cannot go to her without causing a great scandal. He works all day. Only his thoughts of her give him comfort; he kisses her portrait and writes music - presumably his opera, Turandot. "This Turandot is so difficult! Liù is coming along well - it is for you that I am writing it (as I have already told you). ".Letter 22 pp. Octavo. Dated Torre de Lago, Sunday, May 22, [19]21, midnight. On stationery with "Torre del Lago Toscana" embossed at head. Puccini speaks of seeing Ader in nearby Viareggio, then Milan, but absolutely cannot leave. She should never doubt that, if he could, he would "fly" to her. He tells her not to grieve for him. He is not badly off in his own home, but does not have the freedom he would like. He will write to her if he finds that he must go to Berlin in the autumn. Puccini goes on to discuss several of his compositions: his operatic trilogy, Il Trittico; La Bohème; and Turandot, upon which he is still hard at work. "I received a telegram from Leipzig, where Il Trittico has had great success. [Otto] Lohse conducted Tabarro (Mantel) and Schicchi. Fine director. I am working a lot on Turandot. I read that Busoni's [Turandot] was given in Berlin. I am very pleased with my work. It is you, and my love for you, that encourages me to do well. We hope! I wish you good luck for [your performance as] Mimi on the 30th. You will be delicious!" Letter 32 pp. Octavo. Dated Torre del Lago, June 6, [19]21. On stationery with "Torre del Lago Toscana" embossed at head. With autograph envelope postmarked Torre del Lago, June 7, [19]21 with Ader's name and Hamburg address. Puccini has not heard from Ader in two days, but that may be because of a postal strike. He misses her letters; his day is wasted if he does not hear from her. He keeps her photographs in a book between other books near his work table so he can look at them whenever he wants. He especially likes the picture of her as Mimi, and another large one with a veil, which he has cut down to a smaller size. He kisses them many times. He complains of how difficult Turandot is. The previous day was bad, and he couldn't do anything good. Today, things are going better. So is his life, with high and low moments, even with regard to his health. Perhaps he is working too hard; he hardly ever moves, unless it is in an automobile. He concludes with love. "I love you! I kiss your beautiful and savory mouth!"Letter 44 pp. of a bifolium. Octavo. Dated Munich, [ca. August 21, 1921], Midnight. On stationery with the name, Munich address, and emblem of the Regina-Palast-Hotel embossed at head. With several annotations and corrections in Puccini's hand. With autograph envelope postmarked Munich, August 2[1?], [19]21 and Hamburg, August 22, [19]21 with Ader's name and Hamburg address. Puccini has just telegraphed Ader; he thinks it best not to write, because the letter might be opened and cause trouble in the future. He has had a tiresome day: tea at the home of the painter [Gerolamo] Cairati, his friend from Milan, and dinner at the usual Odeon Bar with [Riccardo] Sch[nabl] and Mrs. Frigierio, [?]his mother, and her husband, all from Milan. Now he is going to bed. He longs for her. She will be very busy now, preparing to go to Viareggio. He was wrong to tell her not to write, but now it is too late. He received her two telegrams that evening, and he will telegraph her again the following day, requesting an answer, so that he will have news of her each day. The following night he will see Braunfels' opera, Die Vögel, which Walter had told him was very interesting. He expresses his love. "This evening I dined at the usual restaurant, the Odeon Bar. Sch[nabl] spoke a lot about Art ["Kunst"]! [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Salzburg, Galerie Welz, 1988. - Im Sommer 1920 kehrte Oskar Kokoschka aus Dresden, wo er eine Professur an der Kunstakademie innehatte, vorübergehend nach Wien zurück. Der junge Kunsthistoriker Karl Maria Swoboda und seine Frau Kamilla, mit denen ihn eine langjährige Freundschaft verband, luden ihn zu ihren Hauskonzerten ein. Während Swoboda, ein exzellenter Musiker, selbst Klavier spielte und sang, fertigte Kokoschka eine Reihe von Porträtzeichnungen Kamillas und einiger weiterer Zuhörerinnen an. In einem Zeitraum von ungefähr zwei Wochen entstanden so mehr als zwanzig Kreidezeichnungen, die ursprünglich wohl als Skizzen für eine größere Komposition gedacht waren. Wie es scheint, hat Kokoschka schon während der Arbeit seine Absicht geändert, bloße Skizzen zu schaffen. Er konzentrierte sich weitgehend auf die eine Persönlichkeit - Kamilla Swoboda. (Zitat nach der im Welz Verlag herausgegebenen Monographie.) Siehe auch den Aufsatz von Hans Tietze: Oskar Kokoschka: Variationen über ein Thema. In: Die bildenden Künste. 4. Jahr 1931 Heft 7/8 S. 97 ff. Kamilla Swoboda und der Verleger Richard Lanyi wurden beide 1942 von den Nationalsozialisten ermordet. Versand D: 7,00 EUR Kunst

Del Majjhimanik?yo Autore/i: Buddha Gotamo Editore: Bari, Laterza & Figli, 1921 - 1925 - 1927 3 volumi in - 8°, cartonato orig. tagli superiori colorati, prefazioni e introduzioni degli autori, per la prima volta tradotti dal testo P?li da K. E. Neumann e G. De Lorenzo. vol. 1 pp. XVI - 511, terza edizione primo mezzocentinaio; vol. 2 pp. XXVII - 547, mezzocentinaio medio; vol. 3 pp. XVI - 442, mezzocentinaio superiore. Dalla prefazione degli autori del primo volume: ?La raccolta media, Majjhimanik?yo, delle tramandateci esposizioni della dottrina di GOTAMO BUDDHO consiste di 152 discorsi. Questi discorsi tengono quasi il mezzo, per la loro durata, tra le 34 più lunghe dissertazioni del D?ghanik?yo e le numerose più brevi partecipazioni, spesso soltanto singole sentenze del Khuddakanik?yo. Solo questa caratteristica esteriore ha determinato il nome. A?guttaranik?yo e Sa?yuttakanik?yo, ordinati più o meno con la stessa direttiva, si annettono come quarta e quinta raccolta. L'insieme di queste cinque grandi raccolte viene compreso sotto il titolo di Suttapi?akam, o contesto dei discorsi, come contrapposto al contesto della disciplina, Vinayapi?akam. Questi sono i due capi principali del lascito. In seguito, a questo Dvipitakam, il duplice contesto, si è annesso l'Abhidhammapi?akam, il contesto della scolastica, e così si è creato il Tipi?akam, il triplice contesto, i Biblia sacra del Buddhismo. Probabilmente però fino alla morte di GOTAMO, nel 483 a. Cr., era noto soltanto il Suttapi?akam, il contesto dei discorsi, quasi un Ekapi?akam, dal quale poi a poco a poco il Vinayapi?akam e quindi l'Abhidhammapi?akam in parte si staccarono ed in parte ulteriormente si svolsero. Ottimo esemplare. Uff. scat. 7

        Protocols des sages de Sion traduits directement du russe et précédés d`une introduction par Roger Lambelin . Typoskript.

      Ohne Ortsangabe, o. J. Ohne Ortsangabe, o. J. - X und 44 numerierte Blätter. 4° (Format ca. 27x20,5 cm, privater Kartoneinband der Zeit mit marmoriertem, lose umgelegten Schutzumschlag. Eigenartiges Typoskript des berüchtigten antisemitischen Werkes: "Protokolle der Weisen von Zion", das, heute eindeutig wissenschaftlich widerlegt, den Plan einer jüdischen Weltverschwörung beschreibt. Das meiste dieses, wohl im Zuge der Dreyfus-Affäre geschriebene Machwerkes, wurde aus anderen Texten kopiert. Interessant an dieser Ausgabe ist die scheinbar zeitgleiche Niederschrift mit der französischen Übersetzung von 1921, die, wie der Titel beschreibt, damals bei Grasset in Paris erschienen ist. Unser Exemplar wurde mit Scheibmaschine und mit rotem und schwarzem Tippband geschrieben, somit ergibt sich visuell ein dramatischer Effekt. Das Papier scheint aus der Zeit. Die Fälschung dieser Protokolle war kurz nach Erscheinen der französischen und englischen Ausgabe 1921 publik gemacht worden, warum also ein Typoskript der französischen Ausgabe in dieser Zeit erstellt wurde, erscheint eigenartig.- "Eine erste, russischsprachige Version erschien 1903 im Russischen Kaiserreich. Nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg wurde der Text zunehmend international verbreitet, obwohl die Protokolle bereits 1921 in der Londoner Times als Fälschung entlarvt worden waren. Bekannt wurden insbesondere die Ausgabe aus den 1920er Jahren von Henry Ford in den Vereinigten Staaten und die deutschen Ausgaben von Gottfried zur Beek und Theodor Fritsch. Trotz der Aufdeckung als Fälschung unter anderem im Berner Prozess glauben noch heute Antisemiten und Anhänger von Verschwörungstheorien in der ganzen Welt, besonders in islamischen Ländern und in Russland, an die Authentizität oder Wahrheit der Protokolle". Quelle Wikipedia. - Mit vereinzelten handschriftlichen, grammatikalischen Korrekturen! - Der Einband leichter beschabt, der Umschlag teils etwas rissig, innen leichter gebräunt, vereinzelte kleine Löcher, die vom Durchschlag der Schreibmaschine resultiert. - Text in Französisch. - Unikat! - Queer typescript of the notorious anti-semitic work, "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion", which, today, clearly disproves scientifically describes the plan of a Jewish world conspiracy. Most of this, probably written during the Dreyfus Affair was copied from other texts. The interesting thing about this issue is the seemingly simultaneous transcript with the French translation in 1921, which, as the title describes, then published by Grasset in Paris. Our copy was written with a typewriter and with red and black tip tape, this results in a dramatic visual effect. The falsification of these protocols was made public shortly after the release of the french and english edition in 1921, so why a typescript of the french edition was created in this period, appears strange. - With occasional handwritten, grammatical corrections! - The cover easily scraped, the envelope a little bit cracked, inside lighter browned, occasional small holes resulting from the breakdown of the typewriter. - Text in French. - Unique!

        Autograph musical quotation signed in full

      - Octavo (204 x 138 mm.) 1 measure from an unidentified technical study, being an 8-note staccato pattern in C major, repeated in C-sharp major, both under one downbow, marked "Presto." On an album leaf. Signed and dated "Liège 30 Mai 1921" in black ink. No compositions by the French violinist Thibaud are recorded."At 13 his precocious talent took him to the Paris Conservatoire. He formed a trio with his brothers, a pianist and a cellist of ability, but it was as the partner of Cortot and Casals in a famous trio, chiefly active from 1930 to 1935, that he is remembered as an ensemble player. Thibaud never retired; he appeared in London when he was over 70 and gave his last concert at Biarritz ten days before he was killed in an air crash on his way to a concert tour in the East Asia."

        RUSKIN'S POLITICS

      The Ruskin Centenary Council by the Oxford University Press, 1921. First Edition. Hard Cover. Octavo. Photograph mounted and inserted later as a frontispiece.

Shaw has signed and dated "5/12/1945" on the mounting below the photograph. The bookplate of P.H. Hood is on the front pastedown. A pencil note on the front free endpaper by Hood notes, "The added portrait of G. B. S. / is one taken by himself & printed / by F. H. Evans. / [signed] P. H. Hood". Hood was an English photographer active between 1890 and 1910. The Getty in Los Angeles holds a platinum print of a portrait he took of Evans. There is an additional bookplate of Charles Bolles Rogers that has come loose from the front free endpaper and is laid in. Bound as issued in publisher's cloth backed boards with printed title label on the front cover; tail of the spine is bumped with some light fraying to the cloth. This is remarkably unique book in its provenance and a fantastic context for this exquisite Evans print. Signed by Shaw

        NOTES ON MY BOOKS

      1921. [with BOTH dust jackets] Garden City NY and Toronto: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1921. Original cream parchment-covered boards, with both a blue paper and an onion-skin dust jacket. First Edition, published ten weeks before the English -- being #228 of the 250 numbered copies signed by Conrad. Actually Doubleday Page produced 500 copies, sending half of them to Heinemann for the 250-copy English edition. This little-known Conrad title consists of the prefaces that he wrote, generally for the Dent editions of 1917 and for the "Sun­Dial" edition of his works. This is one of the scarcer Conrad limited signed books, as most of the others consist of between 377 and 1,000 copies.~This copy is in fine, clean condition (one fore corner slightly worn), in both the printed blue paper jacket and the unprinted onion-skin jacket: the former has splits along the joints (about halfway on the rear joint, about one inch on the front joint), and the latter is just about fine. Cagle A52a. Housed in a handsome morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.

Together with:Copyright forms of the Société des Auteurs, Compositeur et Editeurs de Musique (SACEM; French authors' rights society) and cover letter from the Symphony Society of New York to J. T. Roach of the publisher Hinds, Hayden & Eldredge, New York. 1 page. August 2, 1923. On letterhead, typed and signed by the society's manager, George Engles. Engles asks Roach to have the papers signed by the poets.Together with:Two typed letters from Walter Damrosch's office to [J.T.] Roach. Oblong octavo. On stationery with Damrosch's letterhead and signed, "Lillian Day[?]." The first, dated January 3, 1921, is the cover letter to a "corrected copy of M. Widor's song Le Chene du souvenir"; the song is not included with the present collection. The second, dated November 14, 1921, inquires about royalties Damrosch sent to Camille Saint-Saëns and Ralph Vaughan Williams; the writer wants to adjust Damrosch's French bank account; bank receipt (Morgan, Harjes & Co, Paris), dated July 8, 1921, is attached. Unrecorded and presumably unpublished. The texts are by Henry Rutherford Elliot (1849-1906), a journalist in New York, and Edwin Markham (1852-1940), an American poet. "Laugh it off!" is a humorous song in a popular style; The Manger Song of Mary is a lullaby in a more sophisticated style.The correspondence suggests that both of Vidal's songs were slated for publication by Hinds, Hayden & Eldredge in 1923; the scribal copies were most likely intended as engraver's copies. One of the poets (Elliot), however, was no longer alive; there are no materials in the present collection mentioning his heirs. In any case, the SACEM forms (also Markham's) remained unsigned. The publication stalled, and the songs were apparently never published.A French conductor, teacher and composer, " Vidal is particularly remembered as a fine teacher who was sympathetic to new ideas. At the Paris Conservatoire he taught classes in solfège (from 1894), piano accompaniment (from 1896) and composition (from 1909). Vidal';s most successful compositions were the ballet La maladetta (1893), which had been performed nearly 200 times by 1930, and the light opera Eros." David Charlton in Grove Music Online.Mabel Montgomery Tuttle (born Mabel Chauvenet Holden, 1873-after 1921) studied piano with Theodor Leschetizky and Teresa Carreño. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
