        Heemse. Hof- bosch- en veldzang. In vier zangen. Utrecht, Wed. J. van Schoonhoven, 1783.

      "8º (22,3x14cm): pi1 * 4 A-H 8 I 4.Pagination: [2] + 8 + 134 + [2] pp.Cardboard binding. Spine damaged on top and bottom. Placed within decorated slipcase, clad with red leather. Engraved title page with vignette by J. de Wit Jansz. and four headpiece vignettes after drawing by D.S. v/d Laan with images of the 'Huis te Heemse' and its environment. Lit: Anema, Een vergeten dichteres uit de achttiende eeuw (Clara Feyona van Sytzama) (Amsterdam 1921); Van Raesfelt van Sytzama, Heemse. Hof- bosch- en veldzang. Heruitgave met inleiding en aantekeningen door K. Oosterkamp (Hardenberg 1990); Van Veen, De soeticheydt des buyten-levens, vergheselschapt met de boucken. Het hofdicht als tak van een georgische literatuur (Den Haag 1960)."."Bundle of poems by Clara Feyoena van Sytzama (Leeuwarden 1729 - Heemse 1807). In 1750, the poetesss married nobleman and war official Isaac Reinder, baron of Raesfelt. In 1753, the couple moved into his property in Heemse near Hardenberg (Overijssel), which Clara Feyoena would not leave until her death. Although the absence of an intellectual community in her place of residence gave her very little inspiration, she started writing again when she met Arnout Vosmaer (1720-1799), head of the art and nature cabinets of stadtholder Willem V. Around 1774 she wrote this bundle of poems, attributed to her two grandchildren: Reinhart Izaak and Maria Clara, who she raised after the passing of her daughter. Although the book is dated in 1774, it first appeared in 1783. That could certainly have been influenced by the critique that fellow scholar Arnout Vosmaer had presented upon an earlier version by her request. As opposed to her many predecessors in this genre, van Sytzama has incorporated many personal elements in her poetry, and also stretched her description beyond the edges of the garden; also the forests and fields are sung of.

        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.

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.

        That is the agony of true artists" - Autograph Letter

      - Highly interesting autograph letter from the important French composer, written in the last year of his life and offering words of both encouragement and gentle rebuke to a fellow artist, apparently a painter and a friend of the composer. May 23, 1921. Apparently responding to his correspondent's complaint that he is not satisfied with his work, Saint-Saëns writes: "You are pursuing an ideal which you will never attain [.] That is the agony of true artists. Ah, you wanted to be more than everyone else, you wanted to create, to attain the prize on top of the greasy pole! You will never reach it. This is the punishment for our pride, but let us console ourselves! Those who are always content with themselves never go far." He continues by quoting one of his own poems, "Le Pays Merveilleux," dedicated to his student Albert Périlhou in his 1890 collection Rimes familières, and goes on to mention the comparison of two portraits by Ingres and Picasso, in Le Matin: "And in music it is the same thing! But as the public cannot read music, we cannot show it to them." Full translation below. 2 pp. 8.25 x 10.5 inches. Hermine water-mark.  One vertical and one horizontal crease, left margin with old staple holes and .25" closed tear. Translated from the French, in full:"As for me, my dear great painter, I am of the opinion that 5 plus 1 francs are not too much to learn that you are an 'unwitting musician.' You are pursuing an ideal which you will never attain. Who are you saying this to? I have started to write again, and what I am doing seems to me as usual so far from what I would like to be doing. That is the agony of true artists. Ah, you wanted to be more than everyone else, you wanted to create, to attain the prize on top of the greasy pole! You will never reach it. This is the punishment for our pride, but let us console ourselves! Those who are always content with themselves never go far. '. The frustration / Of the human soul is the eternal martyrdom, and of their foolish pride the eternal punishment.'So, a long time since, said a musician who is very fond of you, you and your works, and who at that time, not making music, distracted himself by writing verse.Only, instead of "of the human soul," he should have said "the artist's soul," because most mortals are content with very little, ideally.Have a look in today's Le Matin at the comparison between two portraits, one by Ingres and the other by M. Picasso!And in music it is the same thing! But as the public cannot read music, we cannot show it to them. What painter will be needed to [.] at the Academy?Your old accomplice and good friend,C. Saint-Saëns."

        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.
