        Travels in Arabia Deserta

      1921 - With an introduction by T.E. Lawrence. With numerous maps, plans, and illustrations in the text reproduced from the first edition. Second edition, first with the Lawrence introduction, one of 500 sets printed. 2 vols. 8vo., original dark green cloth, gilt. A fine copy top edges gilt others uncut. Large folding cloth-backed map in a pocket. London, Phillip Lee Warner, Publisher to the Medici Society Ltd., and Jonathan Cape. Having been rejected by the Navy on medical grounds, Doughty pursued an academic career at Cambridge, before travelling extensively throughout Europe and the Mediterranean. Whilst exploring the ruins at Petra in 1875 Doughty learned of further similar sights on the pilgrim route to Medina, and resolving to reach these he approached both the Turkish authorities and the R.G.S. Neither would give their permission or support and Doughty taking matters into his own hands he spent a year in Damascus in the garb of an Arab Christian learning Arabic before joining the pilgrim caravan and travelling throughout Arabia. Rejected by four publishers, Arabia Deserta was eventually published in 1888 some ten years after Doughty's return to England. This work however went largely unnoticed by the general public until the abridged edition of 1908, and more importantly the reissue of the full text with T.E. Lawrence's introduction in 1921 (the present work). ?No one has looked so narrowly at the Arab and the life of Arabia as Doughty, and no one has painted them in literature with a touch so sensitive and sure. And not only Bedawin life of whose hardships he suffered to the last wandering as one poorer than the poorest, but also the life of the oasis towns of the Nejd. One can do Doughty's pages no justice by quotation. His book belongs to that rare and supreme class in which the author speaks not for himself, but for all who might find themselves in like case? (Hogarth, The Penetration of Arabia, p.274-277). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Eight ALS by Lev L'vovich Tolstoy (1869-1945), the son of Lev Tolstoy, to Jacques Patin (1883-1948), the editor of Figaro

      Paris and Wiesbaden, 1921. Eight single leaves, some folded. Very good, with exception of one letter, with tear and some loss to text. The son of Lev Tolstoy, Lev L'vovich Tolstoy was a firm believer in his father's ideals in his youth, but later became increasingly opposed to his philosophical and ethical ideas. He studied sculpture with Rodin and tried, without success, to become a published writer, as well as writing about his childhood and impressions of his father. In 1918 he emigrated, living in Paris before eventually settling in Sweden. The letters included here date to a period when he wrote articles on his father and was making a difficult living as a journalist. Among other things, they contain his negative reaction to his mother's memoirs, discuss his own writing and plans to publish his recollections, and detail his financial woes. "Je prends la liberté de vous envoyer pour le Figaro un article littéraire, souvenirs personnels sur mon père et deux de ses nouvelles. Vous me rendriez un grand service en les publiant le plus tôt possible, car hélas je dois exister du journalisme." - "Je me permets de vous envoyer ci-jointes quelques pages sur la nouvelle posthume de mon père Le Diable. Je parlais de cette œuvre dans un article sur la Sonate à Kreutzer, qui a été publié dans le Journal, mais la rédaction n'a pas voulu publier ces pages qui sont pourtant intéressantes. Peut-être pourrez-vous en faire usage en les publiant dans le Figaro ensemble avec le chapitre qui parle des ouvrages de Tolstoï pour le théâtre [...] Je vous suis très obligé pour l'aide que vous m'avez donnée pour la publication de mes souvenirs ainsi que je remercie Monsieur Robert de Flers pour l'article qu'il a publié dans le Figaro. [...] Maintenant, comme je suis sans argent à ce moment et le change est très déplorable pour notre séjour ici, je vous prierais d'avoir l'extrême obligeance de me faire envoyer ici 300-400 francs avec le premier courrier." - "Ma Vie c'est une ignoble escroquerie littéraire et il faut le dire carrément. Le publique est dupé. On achète ce petit livre croyant lire quelque chose de Tolstoï, sa vie, tandis que cela n'est qu'un récit d'une baba russe, un récit d'une langue russe magnifique, mais un rien comme intérêt [...] littéraire.".

        LEROY NEIMAN ~ INKS ON HEAVY PAPER ~ "BRANDY LUTECE ¿74'

      0, 0 - LEROY NEIMAN "BRANDY LUTECE ¿74" ORIGINAL INK DRAWING BY LEROY NEIMAN, SIGNED AND DATED LEROY NEIMAN, (AMERICAN 1921-2012) INKS ON HEAVY PAPER. SIGNED BY LEROY NEIMAN IN FULL SIGNATURE AND DATED "BRANDY LUTECE ¿74' FRAMED TO DIMENSIONS OF 17.5¿ Tall X 15.5¿ Wide An incredible early Leroy Neiman stunning original drawing rendered in several inks titled ¿BRANDY LUTECE¿, depicting a man and woman holding giant brandy snifters within a scene high in ambiance. Lutèce was a reknown landmark French restaurant on the East side in Manhattan that operated for more than 40 years before closing in early 2004. It once had a satellite restaurant on the Las Vegas Strip.The artistic hashmark lines were actually a part of the restaurant¿s wooden lattice decor which was located against the back of one of the walls behind the tables Neiman¿s stunning use of lines is instantly recognizable in this piece. An early classic in his genre of the Neiman lifestyle artwork, the drawing is rendered in several types of inks. Leory Neiman signed and dated and titled the piece ¿Brandy Lutece ¿74, Leroy Neiman¿ along the bottom of the drawing. An outstanding example, in excellent condition, presented floating with a deep beveled mat, framed and glazed to a finished size of 17.5¿ Tall X 15.5¿ Wide. PROVENANCE: Provenance: Ex-Franklin Bowles Galleries, San Francisco, California (label on verso). Franklin Bowles Galleries has been Neiman¿s leading dealer globally, in an association dating back to 1972. Condition: Both the art and frame are in excellent condition. LeRoy Neiman is the most famous and successful artist in America and possibly, the world. For forty years he has criss-crossed the globe, documenting in sketches and in paint the extraordinary people, places and events that have dominated world media. No artist is as universally famous and collectible as LeRoy Neiman. Perhaps the most important lesson that Neiman took from both Impressionism and the Ashcan school was a near journalistic drive to document the otherwise fleeting moment. In 1996, Columbia University in New York inaugurated the LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies on its Manhattan campus ¿ a fitting tribute to the master of the contemporary serigraph, whose graphics have become collectors¿ items the world over.ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.

        [Photo Album]: Navy World War I.

      Maryland, 1921. Very Good. Oblong folio. Measuring 12" x 16". String-bound black paper album. Contains 333 sepia-toned or black and white silver gelatin photographs measuring between 1" x 1" and 3" x 12", with captions. Very good album lacking the boards with tiny tiny on the page edges with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a young American Navy seaman during World War I. The album is not completely in chronological order and jumps between 1917 and 1919 throughout it. It appears that the compiler was going to Annapolis as some of the early photographs show buildings on their campus and men in participating in "June Week." He captions the first page, "My First Port" which details the town surrounding West Point showing his family, friends, and fellow cadets as well as a Boy Scout troop he was involved with. One of these photos is a combination of three images to make a panorama of the town. Images from the early pages show men on the rifle range, military ships off the coast of Maryland including some with dazzle camouflage, and a photo of a young cadet with the caption, defenders of our nation." Men are also photographed in their formal white uniforms walking on a dock and posed for a portrait. After he was officially in the Navy the seaman went to Guantanamo and the Virgin Islands. Here he photographed the U.S.S. Craven, the U.S.S. New York, and the U.S.S. Hancock as well as fellow seaman on the deck of a ship and local people in the ports they stopped in. St. Thomas is the first large section of photos from this time. Here he captures Horseshoe Beach, children he captions, "cha-chas," and men firing a canon. Many of the photos show men working on a ship scrubbing the deck and procuring coal for the ship. The next section of photos shows the men going through Panama with images of the lock mechanisms used in the canal and the ship docked in Balboa. Following these images are photos from Moana and Waikiki in Hawaii which include a grass skirt clad woman named "Gertrude." Photos from Hawaii also include surfers, spear fisherman, and well-to-do visitors to the islands. One photo is captioned "Hawaiian Chink" and shows a local man walking down a road. After Hawaii the man was sent to California and photographed Alcatraz and location around Oakland and Berkeley while on leave. They traveled south to San Diego where they visited the Panama--California Exposition and photographed the buildings from the exhibit. After California the seaman was sent again to Panama followed again by Hawaii where he continued photographing Navy ship as well as local people and scenes. One photo from this time is captioned "at sea" and shows a line of navy cruisers sailing with coal smoke billowing from their smoke stacks. He captured a bull fight in Panama and a military parade at a stop in Seattle. He also includes group photographs of his unit as well as images of himself posed with women "week-ending." He was then sent on a "First Class Cruise" to Norway where he photographed the Fjord, the Norway-Sweden Navy men he encountered, and local women and children. This was followed by a trip to Gibraltar where he spent time with "Tommies." One photo shows a group of men on a ship with cameras pointed at the photographer. The seaman stayed with the Navy through the war and into the early 1920s.A wonderful collection of well-composed military photography encompassing years of a Navy seaman's service through World War I and after.

        1921 CHARLESTON SOUTH CAROLINA CITY DIRECTORY with WHITE & BLACK / "COLORED" RESIDENTS in Seperate Segregated Sections JIM CROW SOUTH

      WALSH'S CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA, 1921 CITY DIRECTORY. This Directory puts its Residents in Two Sections, White Residents in the "WHITE DEPARTMENT" and Black Residents in the "COLORED DEPARTMENT". Makes this Charleston Directory a True Document of the JIM CROW SOUTH that tried to completely separate the races. Published by the Walsh Directory Company, Charleston, South Carolina, 1921. This is the Original, Vintage Directory published in 1921, in the midst of the JIM CROW YEARS. Original hardcovers, printed blue cloth covered boards and red cloth spine, 6x9.5 inches, thick volume, 885 pages. The WHITE residents section is 443 pages (numbered 183 to 625), the COLORED residents section is 203 pages (numbered 627 to 830). The Directory also has a Street Directory and a Classified Section. Contains numerous advertisements of the day. These directories were published as advertising vehicles so ads are everywhere, including the covers and stamped on the page edges. This volume was part of the amazing SUTRO GENEALOGICAL LIBRARY of SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA. There is a Sutro Library bookplate on the front pastedown, and Sutro Library ink stamps and associated library marks and stamps here and there throughout. The Sutro Library was (and to a large part still is) a treasure trove of genealogical books collected by Adolph Sutro and donated to the City of San Francisco. The collection was pretty much neglected by the City until, in 2012 the City gave the collection to the library of San Francisco State University. Before and after the move to SFSU, quite a few volumes from the Sutro genealogical library were, sadly, deaccessioned, so that the collection would fit it into its new space. In its new home the Sutro Library is still considered to have the best genealogical collection west of Salt Lake City, and is now much better cared for, it's just not as large as it was. Once these wonderful deaccessioned Sutro genealogy books find new homes they will likely not be seen again for some time. CONDITION: The spine covering is worn and fraying at its ends and its gilt lettering has mostly faded away, the boards have some edge and corner tip wear but remain bright and attractive; internally, the front and rear inner hinges are split but holding, the first and last few pages have some edge wear including some closed tears and small edge chips, there are a few small previous owner's marks here and there, otherwise just lightly used and still tight, bright, clean and clear. Overall a solid, nice copy of this ORIGINAL 1921 CHARLESTON, SOUTH CAROLINA DIRECTORY from the Jim Crow South. About the SUTRO LIBRARY (from where this book was deaccessioned): ******The Sutro Library holds the original collection of Adolph Sutro (1830-1898), California businessman and San Francisco mayor. The library has a large collection of publications and items dating from the 13th to the 21st centuries. It also has one of the largest genealogy collections in the U.S. Adolph Sutro's heirs donated his collection to the California State Library in 1913 with the requirement that the collection stay within the city of San Francisco. After operating in various locations in the city for almost 100 years, the Sutro Library moved to a permanent home at San Francisco State University in 2012.****** INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: This book is thick and heavy and will require additional shipping charges. After placing your order you will be notified of the additional charges and be able to accept or reject them before your payment is processed. Or you can contact us ahead of time to find out the shipping charge to your country. Thanks. Good.

        Original 1921 Program

      - Original program from a May 17, 1921 performance of the Ballets Russes at the Gaite Lyrique, Paris. The evening's program featured Stravinsky's L'Oiseau de Feu, the new ballet Chout (Le Bouffon) with music by Prokofiev and decor by Michel Larionov, a suite of traditional Spanish dances titled Cuadro Flamenco with decor and costumes by Picasso, and the company favorite Danses Polovtsiennes. The color cover features a group of female nudes by Picasso; the contents also include portraits of Stravinsky and Prokofiev by Picasso and Henri Matisse, as well as a two-page color spread of designs by Larionov for Chout, and portrait drawings by Juan Gris. [28] pp. Bound with staples and yellow cord. Some fading and wrinkling to the covers, with staples rusting and some internal smudging; overall in very good condition. 9.5 x 12.5 inches (24.5 x 32 cm)."Two new ballets were premiered during the Ballets Russes's May [1921] season at the Théâtre Gaîté-Lyrique, Paris: Chout and Cuadro Flamenco. Cuadro Flamenco was not performed by dancers from the Ballets Russes but by traditional Spanish dancers." (Library of Congress, "Timeline of Ballets Russes," www.loc.gov).Chout, written in two versions between 1915 and 1921, was Prokofiev's first completed ballet score for Sergei Diaghilev. Diaghilev had first commissioned Ala and Lolli, but rejected the score submitted by Prokofiev. Although the composer recast some of the music as the Scythian Suite, the projected ballet never saw the light of day. Instead, Diaghilev now asked Prokofiev to write a ballet based on a folk tale recorded by Alexander Afanasyev. The story had been previously suggested to Diaghilev by Igor Stravinsky as a possible subject for a ballet, and Diaghilev and his choreographer Léonide Massine helped Prokofiev to shape this into a ballet scenario.

      SIRAK SKITNIK, Gestaltung; Khrastyo Petrov SARAFOV: Krastyo Sarafov. Sbornikŭ po sluchaĭ 30-godishninata mu stsenichna deĭnost ([Text-]Sammlung anlässlich seines 30-jährigen Bühnenjubiläums). Hg. unter der Leitung von Stilyan H. Chilingirov. Mit 20 Fototafeln. Umschlag und 9 Vignetten im Text nach Gouache- oder Tuschezeichnungen von Sirak Skitnik. Sofia: (Dŭrzhavna pechatnitsa (Staatsdruckerei) 1921. Lex-4°. 116 [4 (Inhaltsverz.) S., 20 Taf. Originale, mit 2 Klammern geheftete Broschur aus gelbem, dünnem Papier, mit schwarz illustriertem Umschlagtitel. Erstausgabe dieser Festschrift mit 25 Texten verschiedener Autoren (u.a. von Hg. Chilingirov) zu Ehren des 30jährigen Bühnenjubiläums des Schauspielers Krastyo Petrov Sarafov (1876-1952). Sarafov zählt zu den bedeutendsten bulgarischen Mimen in der 1. Hälfte des 20. Jh. und war langjähriges Ensemble-Mitglied des Nationaltheaters. Als solches stand er auch in regem künstlerischem Austausch mit Vertretern der bulgarischen Kunst- und Literaturavantgarde, z.B. mit Dechko Uzunov, der als Bühnen- und Kostümbildner am Nationaltheater wirkte. Auch mit Sirak Skitnik, dem Gestalter dieses Bandes und zwischen 1922 und 1924 auch Dramaturg am Nationaltheater, arbeitete Sarafov zusammen, darüber hinaus waren die beiden seit der gemeinsamen Petersburger Studienjahre auch befreundet. Vorliegende opulente Hommage an Sarafov besticht nun vor allem durch Sirak Skitniks Umschlagillustration, die in der besten expressionistischen Manier dieser frühen Jahre seines avantgardistischen Schaffens gehalten ist. Der in ein strahlendes Arrangement von Linien und geometrischen Elementen gebettete Kopf einer Frau mit Augenmaske erinnert in seinem expressionistischem Gestus an zwei von Sirak Skitniks Schlüsselwerken der ersten Sofioter Avantgarde, die farbigen Linolschnitte zu Mutafovs »Marionetki« (1920) und die Gouachen zu Trayanovs »Bulgarische Balladen« (1920). Die 9 Vignetten im Text schließen an diesen markanten Stil an. Umschlag an Kopf- und Fußende des Rückens mit minimalen Fehlstellen und leicht eingerissen, ebenso an der vorderen Seitenkante, insgesamt etwas fleckig und geringfügig berieben, innen stellenweise gering fingerfleckig, sonst gut erhaltenes, großteils unaufgeschnittenes Exemplar dieser elegant breitrandig auf Dünndruckpapier gedruckten Publikation, wie die meisten von Sirak Skitnik illustrierten Titel selten angeboten und gesucht. Jacono 4 (Marionetki), 5 (Bulg. Balladen); Plamen V. Petrov et al.: The Visual Artists of The National Theatre of Bulgaria 1904-1954. Catalogue of the exhibition. Sofia: 2014, P. 213.

        Pro Lisu i Kolobok. Russkaia skazka [About the Fox and the Runaway Bun: A Russian Fairy Tale]. Five copies, in variant pochoir wrappers.; Detskaia biblioteka [Children's Library]

      Paris: J. Povolozky, 1921. Octavos (18.5 × 13.5 cm). Original decorative wrappers pasted over blind self-wrappers (as issued); 8 pp. Wrappers illustrated with five variant pochoir patterns. Numerous small vignettes in the text. Very good. Russian fairy tale printed for children of Russian émigrés in France, with illustrations by the ten-year-old Zhenya Kovarskaya, the daughter of Ilya Kovarskii and Lidiia Kovarskaia, an editor-and-publisher duo which had left Soviet Russia in 1919. Each of the five copies features a variant wrapper, decorated by hand using different patterns, most likely using the pochoir technique. Given small irregularities, it appears likely that this work was also carried out by children. The publisher, J. Povolozky, ran a gallery in Paris in the 1920s and was known for his collaboration with Russian avant-garde artists Mikhail Larionov and Natalia Goncharova. KVK, OCLC show copies (one each) at NYPL, Princeton, Stanford, and UNC Chapel Hill, without specifying which of the wrapper variants are held. Not at the Russian State or National Library. Not in Savine.
