        One Thousand Sport Stories

      (Chicago): (The Spink Sport Stories Co.). (1921). First. First edition. Three volumes. Brown cloth gilt (we have also seen sets in red cloth gilt). A bit of rubbing to a few spots on the bottom of the boards, very light general wear, an otherwise tight, near fine set. Stories about a number of sports by Spink, one of the leading sportswriters of his day and after whom the sportswriters' wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame is named. For what its worth, sets in the brown cloth seem scarcer than those in red. Complete sets are scarce, especially in this condition. .

        Le Piege de Meduse

      1921. BRAQUE, Georges. Le Piège de Méduse. By Eric Satie. [32] pp. With three woodcuts printed in colour by Braque. Folio, 330 x 235 mm, bound in full morocco binding by Nathalie Berjon. Paris: Editions de la Galerie Simon (Daniel Henry Kahnweiler), 1921. This scarce work contains Braque's first original book illustrations. As is typical of Kahnweiler's books, it combines the work of two of the leading figures in the Parisian art world of the time, the artist Braque and the composer Satie. The play is a Dada work, and the woodcuts are Cubist, but the book works well as a whole, and it has become one of the key monuments of early twentieth-century book illustration. One of 90 copies on Holland of a total edition of 112. Signed by Braque and Eric Satie. The Artist and the Book 33. Johnson, Artists' Books in the Modern Era 1870-2000, No. 29.

        Liebespaar, Umarmung.

      1921/22. Aquarellierte und mit Goldbronze gehöhte Federlithographie, 1921/22, auf sehr feinem Japan, auf Untersatz montiert, dort signiert, betitelt und als "Orig. Lithogr. handkol." bezeichnet. 21,3:18,1 cm. Vergleichsliteratur: Ausst. Katalog: Elfriede Lohse-Wächtler 1899-1940. Friedrichshafen/Bremen, 2009, Farbabb. S. 13.. Trotz großer Widerstände seitens ihres Elternhauses, das sie schon im Alter von 16 Jahren verließ, absolvierte die Künstlerin 1915-1918 ein Studium an der Dresdener Kunstgewerbeschule, parallel ab 1916-1919 Mal- und Zeichenkurse an der Dresdner Kunstakademie. Ihr Interesse galt schon zu Beginn den avantgardistischen Kunstströmungen, Dadaismus und Expressionismus. Nach der schwierigen Ehe mit dem Maler und Opernsänger Kurt Lohse, der ein liederlich ausschweifendes Leben führte, so daß sie in permanenter Armut lebte, und mehrfacher Trennungen wurde sie zeitweise obdachlos. Ein dadurch bewirkter seelischer und körperlicher Zusammenbruch führte 1929 zu einem mehrwöchigen Aufenthalt in einer Nervenheilanstalt. Hier entstanden die berühmten "Friedrichsberger Köpfe", Porträts ihrer Mitpatientinnen, die ihr große Anerkennung in der Kunstwelt, aber kaum Verkäufe einbrachten. Anschließend schaffte sie die endgültige Trennung von ihrem Ehemann. Es entstanden nachfolgend Bilder des Hamburger Hafens, des Arbeiter- und Prostituiertenmilieus sowie Selbstbildnisse. Finanzieller Erfolg stellte sich allerdings noch immer nicht ein, so daß sie weiterhin in wirtschaftlicher Not lebte. Nach der Rückkehr in ihr Elternhaus nach Dresden und zunehmender seelischer und körperlicher Zerrüttung ließ ihr Vater sie 1932 aus Unverständnis und Hilflosigkeit in die Landes-Heil- und Pfleganstalt Arnsdorf bei Dresden einweisen. "Schizophrenie" wurde kurzerhand diagnostisiert. 1935 wurde sie in der Frauenklinik Dresden im Rahmen der nationalsozialistischen Eugenik, des "Erbgesundheitsgesetzes", zwangssterilisiert. Völlig gebrochen erlischt nahezu vollständig ihre Schaffenskraft. 1940 wurde sie im Zuge des nationalsozialistischen Programms "lebensunwertes Leben" in die Landes-Heil- und Pflegeanstalt Pirna-Sonnenstein deportiert und ermordet.

Illustrated with woodcuts by Oscar Jespers. 4to., 285 x 220 mm, bound in original illustrated wrappers, in a new navy cloth box with white leather label. Antwerp: Uitgave van het Sienjaal, 1921. |~||~||~||~| Dutch/Flemish avant-garde bookmaking at its best. The innovative use of typography, combined with dramatic woodcuts, make this one of the most exciting books produced in the twenties. Oscar Jespers (1887-1970), Belgian sculptor in the Constructivist and Expressionist movements, was part of a group of artists and writers in Antwerp who gathered around the poet Paul van Ostayen, a Flemish dandy whose poetry and writings were greatly influenced by the Expressionist and Dadaist schools. The wrappers have been expertly restored with the spine and a small segment of the front cover replaced, else in very good condition. One of 500 copies on Registre paper, of a total edition of 540, signed by René Victor, who collaborated with Jespers on the design. Johnson, Artists' Books in the Modern Era 1870-2000, no.35.

        Psychologische Typen

      Zurich: Rascher & Cie, 1921 Original printed gray wrappers; an excellent uncut copy. First edition of Jung's most important work. "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).

        Northmost Australia. Three centuries of exploration

      London: Simpkin Marshall, 1921. Two volumes, octavo, with the full suite of 17 loose folding maps; attractive in original dark green cloth. The wild North. Splendid synthesis of geographical knowledge of northern Australia, by the explorer and government geologist Robert Logan Jack (1845-1921).In 1879-1880 Jack led a surveying party into the remote wilderness of far north Queensland in search of tine, gold, and other payable minerals. The journey was fraught with danger, as described in a memorial address by Dorothy Hill: 'Jack and the prospecting part of 1879-80 had the same natural dangers to face as Kennedy - poison weed which killed the horses; hostile natives; festoons of mosquitoes and flies; heavy rain and heavy moist heat...dangers in flooded rivers and sodden ground.' Here the party encountered hostile tribes and Jack was speared in the shoulder and seriously wounded, luckily escaping septicaemia in the tropical heat.Intelligent, capable, and affable, Jack was ideally suited to the hard toil of government surveying work, and was renowned for his ability to placate the demands of miners, prospectors and other entrepreneurs drawn to Queensland in search of quick riches. Northernmost Australia represents a lifetime of first-hand knowledge gleaned in the wilderness.

        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.
