        Mitsou. Quarante images par Baltusz.

      - - Rotapfel-Verlag, Erlenbach-Zurich & Leipzig 1921. Préface de Rainer Maria Rilke.  4º m. 13, (3) p., 40 hojas. 40 ilustraciones. Rústica. A los 10 años, Balthus realizó su primera obra de arte importante: 40 dibujos en los que narra la historia de un niño (su propia historia) que encuentra a un gato, lo adopta, pasea, juega y duerme con él, y finalmente? lo pierde y llora desconsoladamente. Rilke, compañero sentimental de la madre del joven  Balthazar Klossowski de Rola  se emocionó tanto con los dibujos que escribió un prefacio y los hizo publicar con el título de Mitsou, Histoire d?un chat en 1921. En el prefacio de Mitsou, Rilke cuenta con palabras la historia que Balthus narra en sus dibujos, y reflexiona acerca de la pérdida y la frustración, y la dificultad para aprehender, dictar, controlar, poseer otras vidas? En definitiva, sólo se posee algo cuando se renuncia a ello. Independientemente del encanto intrínseco que tiene la obra, es a la vez una clave para la comprensión de la enigmática personalidad de Balthus, que durante toda su vida se identificó con los gatos (véase su autorretrato de 1935 ?El Rey de los Gatos?.  Se trata de un ejemplar muy bien conservado de un libro frágil que suele encontrarse bastante ajado. Gatos, chat, cat, Rilke

        Women in Love

      London: Martin Secker, 1921 - FIRST TRADE EDITION in extremely rare original dust jacket; preceded by the scarce privately-printed New York limited edition of 1920. "In spite of what he feared would be the fate of his fiction after The Rainbow, in spring 1916 he started again on the ‘Sisters’ material; after an enormous creative effort in which he wrote the whole book twice he had finished the first version of Women in Love by November 1916. But it was rejected by every publisher who saw it; the fact that it contained recognizable re-creations of several people (including Russell, Heseltine, and the Morrells) did not help; nor did its vivid portrayal of what one publisher's reader called ‘the writer's expressions of antipathy to England and the forms of English civilisation’. To Lawrence it was a novel in which ‘I have knocked the first loop-hole in the prison where we are all shut up’ (Letters, 2.663), but it would not be published for another four years" (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography).Octavo, original brown cloth, original dust jacket. Decorative bookplate of Montgomery Evans II on front pastedown. Book near-fine, with a little toning to text (as usual); dust jacket with toning to spine, chipping to spine edges and corners including an approximately 1x.75 in chip to top corner of rear panel; tape repairs to verso.

      London: Grant Richards, 1921 - INSCRIBED by the author, and very rare thus. An uncharacteristic work for this brilliantly witty writer, but a very personal one: this sentimental tale of an Arab boy's search for God mirrors Firbank's own religious conversion, a happy union of aestheticism and piety. The author's short orchidaceous life ended in 1926, and copies of his works are seldom encountered signed. Edition limited to 300 copies. (Benkovitz A8a). Chipping to spine; a very good copy in mauve wrappers. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Wanted Poster

      Salt Lake City, UT: Office of the Chief Police, 1921. Wanted poster [26 cm x 18 cm] Age toning with a small contemporary ink stamp from the Salt Lake Police. Attractively matted and framed. The two suspects are identified as Paul Murray - alias - E.B. Williamson and Howard Harber. This poster contains a mug shot of Murray. Murray is described as "Age 23 h 5 ft 8 in. weight 130 lbs.. complexion florid, hair red, eyes blue, teeth good, nativity Georgia, occupation chauffeur, has scar under left eye." Harber is described as "Hair brown, eyes dark, height 6 ft. 2 1/2 in., weight 158 lbs., 21 yrs. old, nativity Queensland, Australia, occupation bridgeman, complexion ruddy, build slender, has scar on right upper left."& & The Salt Lake Telegram of September 6, 1921 wrote: "The Robbery of Beck's Hot Springs took place last night at 8:20 o'clock. When five masked men quietly and systematically secured envelopes and cash belonging to the bathers to the extent of $1000. Bathers were compelled to look on while the robbers looted to the checkroom and cash register. The telephone was torn from the wall in order that no alarm could be given. Three of the bandits entered the office while the two others waited outside in the machine. Thirty-five envelopes containing the money and valuable of the bathers were gathered together and thrust into a Boston bag belonging to P.T. Boise, manager of the Springs."& & The text below Murray's mug shot states: "On the evening of September 5th 1921 Beck's Hot Springs, a bathing Resort near here was held up by five men, two being apprehended and three still out. Two of the three men out have been identified and FELONY COMPLAINTS AND WARRANTS have been issued against them. Please FILE THESE FINGER PRINTS in your bureau and should you apprehend either of these men hold and wire at our expense and an officer with proper papers will come for them." & & The third man was later identified as John Doe Brown - alias - John Carr. The three would steal a car in Denver and later they would surface in Oklahoma. Although Utah authorities would press for their extradition they were charged in Federal court. The Salt Lake Telegram for November 21, 1921 wrote: " Assistant United States District attorney David H. Cannon has requested the Oklahoma federal authorities to hold the three alleged Beck's Hot Springs bandits for Salt Lake. The man are Paul Murray, Howard Harber and John Carr. They are held in Oklahoma under the Dyer motor vehicles act." These three would never spend anytime in Utah jails for this crime.

        I Documenti della conquista Ebraica del Mondo. I protocolli dei saggi Anziani di Sion. Il Rapporto del Servizio Segreto Americano. I documenti bolscevichi dell?Ebreo-Russia. Traduzione e note di Fer.

      Firenze-Roma, Fede e Ragione, 1921. Supplemento al n. 13 di Fede e Ragione del 27 Marzo 1921. Nei 24 protocolli gli anziani illustrano i sistemi per ottenere il controllo del mondo: Vogliono convincere i gentili da loro chiamati Goyim ad assecondare la loro volontà. I loro metodi preferiti sono la diffusione di idee liberali, il sovvertimento della morale, la promozione della libertà di stampa, la contestazione dell?autorità tradizionale e dei valori cristiani e patriottici. I Protocolli furono pubblicati per la prima volta in Italia nel 1921, ma la loro massima diffusione si ebbe a partire dal 1937, grazie all?edizione italiana curata da Giovanni Preziosi con un saggio introduttivo di Julius Evola: Quest?ultimo pur ritenendo palese che i Protocolli fossero un falso storico, sosteneva tuttavia che le idee e i pensieri in essi esposti stavano piano piano verificandosi e trovando riscontri negli avvenimenti della storia contemporanea.

      3 pp. (mm. 180x112), datata: 2.II.21, su carta intestata ?Senato del Regno?, di 49 righe. Confidenziale. 1921 ?Illustre amico,/ Ella mi domanda se avevo pensato al possibile relatore dei due disegni di legge sull?Esame di Stato.. Le rispondo ora che gradirei come relatore l?on. Cuomo, il quale mi si è mostrato disposto a sobbarcarsi a questa fatica./ Il Cuomo accetta il concetto informatore dei due disegni, facendo riserve su particolari. Ma su questi ci sarà sempre modo d?intendersi. So che contro i due disegni vi sono, nella Commissione, molte prevenzioni. Ma, in verità, io non vedo per quale altra via si possa tentar il risanamento della scuola media italiana. Ciò che ho formulato in articoli di legge è nient?altro che il risultato degli studi e delle proposte fatte in questi ultimi anni dai competenti... cordialmente suo?. Ben conservata.

        A Noble Fragment: Being a Leaf of the Gutenberg Bible. With a Bibliographical Essay by A. Edward Newton

      New York: Gabriel Wells, 1921 The first substantial book printed in the West was, appropriately, the most important book written in the West, the Holy Bible. Johan Gutenberg, inventor of the art of printing with moveable type, began his Bible around 1462, probably completing it in Mainz in 1455, with his partners on the project, Johann Fust and Peter Schoeffer. The text was the standard Vulgate Latin of Saint Jerome, the Biblia Latina. This work is known among bibliographers as the 42-line Bible. The first book ever printed remains one of the most beautiful books ever printed, a testimony to the meticulous care and artistry that Gutenberg applied to the work. Full black morocco by Stikeman & Co., in black cloth slipcase. The leaf in this copy is folio 168, Volume I, from the Book of III Kings (modern I Kings) 10:5-11:27. Folio. Printed in Gothic type. Two-line Lombard initials in red and headlines and chapter number in alternating red and blue, capital strokes in red. Printed in Gothic type. Two-line Lombard initials in red and headlines and chapter number in alternating red and blue, capital strokes in red. The provenance of the Bible used in this leaf book is as follows: Maria Elisabeth Augusta von Sulbach (1722-1794), wife of Carl Theodore, Elector Prince of the Palatinate, subsequently Elector Prince of Bavaria; Mannheim Hoffbibliothek; Munich Royal Library (de-accessioned in 1832 as a duplicate); Robert Curzon, Baron Zouche (1810-1873) and bey descent until sold at Sotheby's, November 1920, lot 70 to Joseph Sabin; sold the same year to Gabriel Wells.
