      London: Eyre and Spottiswoode. c.1921. Two pictures from Aldin?'s ?'Old Inns?', published in 1921 by Heinemann. These prints, two of the sixteen colour images from the book, were issued by Eyre and Spottiswoode with the fine Art Trade Guild, whose stamp appears to the lower left edge of each print. Both are SIGNED in pencil by the artist and mounted, framed and glazed. Each lively image features a scene outside a pub and both depict hens pecking around a wicker basket in the foreground and various animals behind; a cat in a window, a dog jumping up at its owner and horses drawing carts along the road. Print size is 30 x 40cm. A very appealing pair. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.

        Die Büchse Der Pandora

      1921. Pandora's BoxAlastair's Illustrations[ALASTAIR, illustrator, pseud. of Baron Hans Henning von Voight]. WEDEKIND, Frank. Die Büchse Der Pandora. Tragödie in Drei Aufzügen. Mit 12 Bildebeigaben und Einem Vorsatz von Alastair. Munich: Georg Müller Verlag, [1921]. One of 500 numbered copies, this being no. 383. Large quarto (11 1/4 x 8 1/2 inches; 285 x 216 mm.). [1-7], 8-108, [1, limitation, verso blank], [2, blank]. Twelve full-page plates printed in red and black. Publisher's boards hand-blocked with black, pale green and red honeycomb cell patterned paper, and with tan paper spine lettered in gilt. Pictorial endpapers printed in red and black. Minimal edge and corner wear, otherwise a fine copy.A gorgeous and decadently illustrated edition of Wedekind's classic Pandora's Box. It is said that German film director Georg Papst visualized his 1927 adaptation, Lulu, and cast its star, Louise Brooks, based upon Alastair's illustrations.Hans Henning Otto Harry Baron von Voigt (1887-1969), best known by his nom de paintbrush, Alastair, was a German artist, composer, dancer, mime, poet, singer and translator. Mysterious, flamboyant, enigmatic and attractive, Baron Hans Henning Voight was self-taught as an artist, and he was also a proficient dancer and pianist. He is best known as an illustrator, and his career as an artist was launched in 1914, when John Lane published Forty-Three Drawings by Alastair. His drawings, which are often decadent in spirit and have the look of Art Deco, were influenced by the drawings of Aubrey Beardsley. His ?'serpentine line?' often depicts characters whose outlines are lightly drawn with the main areas filled in with ?'broken dotted lines?'.His drawings were in black and white ink, sometimes with one color added. Alastair's illustrations show a strong influence from the Decadent movement in art and poetry that had begun decades earlier, with the perverse and sinister a recurring theme. The poet and publisher Caresse Crosby described her first meeting with him: "... a blackamoor ushered us into a room where their was a black piano with a single candle burning on it. Soon Alastair himself appeared in the doorway in a white satin suit; he bowed, did a flying split and slid across the polished floor to stop at my feet, where he looked and said, 'Ah, Mrs Crosby !'" He knew how to made an entrance.

"His list of psychological types is one of the most ambitious that has been proposed . . . The psychological types, in which he expounds and illustrates this doctrine, is a fascinating work, and very high claims have been made for it, as when Baynes, its English translator, says ‘that for practical psychologists it must assuredly be regarded as the foundation of the science, for in no other work do we find basic psychological principles whose validity is commensurate with the undeniable facts of man's historic development and the realities of individual experiences. Few psychologists would be prepared to dispute the truth of this statement. . . ." (Flugel & West, One Hundred Years of Psychology, pp. 252-54). [Attributes: First Edition]

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.

        Le Livre de la Guerre de Cent Ans. Dessins de Gus Bofa et texte de P. Mac Orlan.

      Paris: La Renaissance du Livre, Juin 1921 - Edition originale tirée à 401 exemplaires, celui-ci l'un des 340 sur vergé antique, in-4; faux-titre, titre, 50 feuillets d'illustrations légendées avec verso blanc. Texte de Pierre Mac Orlan (pp. 41-49), 1 f., [3p. Table illustrée, Justification], cul-de-lampe. Intéressante reliure originale de Creuzevault en demi-veau taupe mosaïqué d'un listel de maroquin gris et de filets à froid, couverture conservée. Bel exemplaire. "Cet ouvrage, terminé au mois de Mai 1918 mais retardé par les difficultés inhérentes à l'état de paix victorieuse, a été achevé d'imprimer le 10 Juin 1921". Bofa et Mac Orlan savent tous deux de quoi il retourne? En rédigeant cet ouvrage Bofa tente d'exorciser l'horreur et le traumatisme de cette guerre, qui, en Décembre 1914, le laisse mutilé après une très sérieuse blessure aux jambes. Mac Orlan, quant à lui, est blessé en Septembre 1916. Sous la chronique de la Guerre de Cent ans se devinent les protagonistes de la Grande Guerre. Voir Pollaud-Dulian "Gus Bofa, l'enchanteur désenchanté". [Attributes: First Edition]
