        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 ?uvre 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.".

      Henri Floury, 1921. reliure souple à la bradel, papier floral du Japon, non rogné, couverture Troisième édition. Envoi a. s. : à Félix Fénéon, son ami, Paul Signac. De Delacroix au néo-impressionnisme parut initialement en livraisons dans La revue blanche de mai à juillet 1898 sous l'égide de Félix Fénéon qui en assura la publication non sans avoir discuté, appuyé et parfois corrigé avec Signac le texte au cours de son élaboration.

Dans cette nouvelle édition, aucun changement n'a été fait au texte original publié en 1899. Seule la dédicace a été modifiée. Le nom du cher Henri-Edmond Cross a été inscrit à côté de celui de Georges Seurat et le voeu « pour la couleur » qui nous a semblé d'actualité, ajouté (note préliminaire).

        Daniel Chester French Adds Lincoln Memorial Statue to His Biography for Who’s Who

      1921 - Printed Entry for Who's Who in America, with handwritten correction, signed by French at bottom. October 1, 1921. New York City. 1 p. 8 1/2 x 10 3/4 in. In 1899, Albert Nelson Marquis (1855-1943) published the first edition of Who's Who in America with biographical information on 8,602 "leaders and achievers" from "every significant field of endeavor." For the twelfth volume, to be published in 1922 or 1923, French received a printed version of his prior entry with a request for updates. French added his latest and greatest accomplishment, the completion in 1920 of his sculpture for the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Historic BackgroundThe Lincoln Memorial Committee had selected French in 1914 to create a Lincoln statue as part of the memorial to be designed by architect Henry Bacon (1866-1924). French was the personal choice of Bacon, with whom he had collaborated for nearly 25 years. French began work in December 1914. Over the next two years, he worked on models in clay and plaster at Chesterwood, making various changes. In October 1916, he completed a six-foot plaster model, originally to be scaled up to a 12-foot bronze image. After consulting with Bacon in the memorial then under construction, they decided that a much larger 19-foot sculpture of marble was more appropriate.It took a full year for the Piccirilli Brothers in New York City to transfer French's design to marble blocks. The statue was assembled in the memorial in 1920, but not formally dedicated until May 30, 1922.Volume 12 of Who's Who in America contains sketches of 24,278 persons in 3,520 pages.Complete Transcript [with additions by French in bold]FRENCH, Daniel Chester, sculptor; b.

Illustrated with colour woodcuts by Lébédeff (frontispiece plate, 4 headpieces, 5 tailpieces [including tailpiece on colophon leaf], 4 initials and 12 illustrations within the text).

Extra-illustrated with a colour woodcut by Lébédeff, numbered 212/225, signed and inscribed by the artist to Ivan Lamberty, laid in. Publisher's vellum wrappers, covers hand illuminated in pen-and-ink by Lébédeff, gold ribbon ties, within publisher's dark brown morocco-backed patterned boards chemise and slipcase Unique large paper copy number one (of one), on Japon Impérial with the original preliminary sketches for the illustrations by Lébédeff, as well as signed artist's proofs of the illustrations, and bound in a hand-illuminated binding by the artist. A unique, deluxe issue of this work, usually found as one of 960 copies on papier de Rives (from a total edition of 1000, the remaining 39 copies being hors commerce or other limited but less deluxe versions). Jean Lébédeff (born Ivan Lebedev in Bogorodskoye), began his studies under Fernand Cormon at the Ecole Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1909 and became a noted graphic designer and book illustrator in Paris between the wars, acclaimed for his wood-cuts. A well-known anarchist, his work was exhibited at the 1926 International Exhibition of Revolutionary Art of the West in Moscow; his work would later be featured in the 1979 retrospective "Paris Moscou 1900-1930" at the Centre Georges Pompidou. Vagabonds was a tremendously influential work by Gorky, here in French from the translation by Ivan Stannik. The work, with strong autobiographical elements, is comprised of four short stories featuring Russian vagabonds, titled: Malva; Konovalov; Tchelkache; and Mon Compagnon. The provenance of this copy, given the extra-illustration laid in, would seem to be Ivan Lamberty, a noted art patron and collector in Brussels. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Orleans and Isabelle

      An original work by Norman Lindsay inscribed for his friend, the poet Hugh McCrae, illustrating a scene from McCrae's unfinished verse-drama, Joan of Arc. Watercolour on paper, 408 x 400 mm, signed and dated lower left 'Norman Lindsay 1921' and inscribed below by the artist 'to its creator...'; framed. This watercolour was painted by Norman Lindsay for his close friend Hugh McCrae during one of the most intense periods of their artistic collaboration. The two artists had first met in 1897 while working on The Bulletin and other periodicals, and Lindsay had later illustrated McCrae's first volume of poetry, Satyrs and Sunlight: Silvarum Libri, in 1909. Norman Lindsay arranged for the publication of another volume of McCrae's poems, Colombine, in 1920, with the entire proceeds of the deluxe edition - containing a Lindsay etching - going to the impoverished poet (McCrae was perennially broke). From 1920 McCrae worked on a verse-drama, Joan of Arc. He never completed it, although the second part was published in Art in Australia between December 1921 and May 1922 as Orleans and Isabelle, A Tragedy in Three Scenes, with woodcut initials designed by Lindsay. It was at this time (late 1921) that Lindsay painted this exquisite large format watercolour illustrating a scene from the second part of McCrae's Joan of Arc. The work bears a presentation inscription by the artist for McCrae. The following year, McCrae and Lindsay would privately publish Idyllia and in 1928, Satyrs and Sunlight : being the collected poetry of Hugh McCrae, which included Orleans and Isabelle, A Tragedy in Three Scenes from the unfinished Joan of Arc. Provenance: Norman Lindsay, gifted to Hugh McCrae; thence by descent through the McCrae family.

      No Place N.D. - Presume first edition/production. Large American bronze plaque, No Date (1921) . Bronze circular plaque with Biblical verse: "My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations" (Isiah 56: 7) . Featuring several low-relief ritual synagogue scenes, including the blowing of the shofar, the blessing of the lulav, the reading of the Torah, and a Priestly blessing. With a central female allegorical figure holding a Torah scroll. Hebrew Decalogue at top and Hebrew "Sh’ma Yisra’el" at side. 12.25 inches in diameter, with hanger on rear. Included is a promotional brochure about the piece: "The Spirit of the Synagogue, " undated, but post 1921 since this date is referenced in the text. Also included is the artist’s "Art as Related to Judaism, " an undated pamphlet (but certainly 1922) . An article in the May 21, 1921 Reform Advocate about the plaque indicates that it was "designed to represent the Synagog [sic] as a contrast to a panel recently painted for the Boston Library, wherein the Synagog [sic] was outrageously misrepresented as a disheveled old woman. In the present plaque the Synagog is symbolized as a radiant young women and the accompanying symbolization reflects the Jewish spirit as buoyant and continuously unfolding its message that ‘My house shall be a house of prayer for all nations. ’" The Artist, Rose Kohler, was the daughter of Reform movement leader Kaufmann Kohler, and the granddaughter of Reform leader David Einhorn. The Jewish Women’s Archive notes that "Kohler’s best-known works include The Spirit of the Synagogue, a detailed medallion with an inscription that reads ‘My House shall be called a House of Prayer for all peoples, ’ replicas of which can be found in religious centers throughout the country . She wrote many articles on the origins and development of Jewish art. " (JWA, 2015) . See also Who Was Who in American Art (1985) . Very Good Condition (women-4-15) [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Witch-Cult in Western Europe. A Study in Anthropology.

      Oxford: At the Clarendon Press,, 1921. Octavo. Original green cloth, title gilt to spine. In the dust jacket. Bookseller's ticket to front pastedown. Very slight nicks to tips, a sound and fresh copy in the slightly spine-tanned jacket with only small chips to the ends and corners. Excellent condition. First edition. Having established herself by "strength of character…in the hitherto entirely male world of professional Egyptologists [she] ventured into territory not then considered suitable for women by her involvement in anthropology" (ODNB). The present work, which puts forward the theory that mediaeval European witchcraft represented the survival of the pre-Christian nature cult of Cernunnos, the Horned God, was controversial but has proved popular and has been widely influential in the development of Wicca and Neopaganism. An uncommon book in jacket, and this a very smart copy.
