        The Mysterious Affair At Styles

      John Lane The Bodley Head, 1921. 1st edition. Hardcover. Original decorative brown cloth, spine edges gently rubbed, the rough-cut pages clean bar a little edge-spotting, one early leaf with very slight edge-wear. Housed in a quarter morocco solander box with gilt spine lettering. Agatha Christie's first book also introduced her famous Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot. She wrote the novel as a result of a challenge to do so by her sister Madge. It appeared first in the US in October 1920, then in the UK in early 1921. The New York Times thought that, even though it was her first published work, 'she betrays the cunning of an old hand'. This copy is near fine, and very scarce.

"Gilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936) cannot be summed up in one sentence. Nor in one paragraph. In fact, in spite of the fine biographies that have been written of him, he has never been captured between the covers of one book. But rather than waiting to separate the goats from the sheep, let's just come right out and say it: G.K. Chesterton was the best writer of the 20th century. He said something about everything and he said it better than anybody else. But he was no mere wordsmith. He was very good at expressing himself, but more importantly, he had something very good to express. The reason he was the greatest writer of the 20th century was because he was also the greatest thinker of the 20th century. Born in London, G.K. Chesterton was educated at St. Paul's, but never went to college. He went to art school. In 1900, he was asked to contribute a few magazine articles on art criticism, and went on to become one of the most prolific writers of all time. He wrote a hundred books, contributions to 200 more, hundreds of poems, including the epic Ballad of the White Horse, five plays, five novels, and some two hundred short stories, including a popular series featuring the priest-detective, Father Brown. In spite of his literary accomplishments, he considered himself primarily a journalist. He wrote over 4000 newspaper essays, including 30 years worth of weekly columns for the Illustrated London News, and 13 years of weekly columns for the Daily News. He also edited his own newspaper, G.K.'s Weekly. (To put it into perspective, four thousand essays is the equivalent of writing an essay a day, every day, for 11 years. If you're not impressed, try it some time. But they have to be good essays – all of them – as funny as they are serious, and as readable and rewarding a century after you've written them.) Chesterton was equally at ease with literary and social criticism, history, politics, economics, philosophy, and theology. His style is unmistakable, always marked by humility, consistency, paradox, wit, and wonder. His writing remains as timely and as timeless today as when it first appeared, even though much of it was published in throw away papers." (The American Chesterton Society)

        Hans Reichenbach. Aetat suae XXX. Büste im Dreiviertelprofil nach rechts, eine Zigarette rauchend.

      - Radierung, 1921/22, signiert. 27,2:24,6 cm. Sehr guter Abdruck auf etwas vergilbtem Papier mit Wasserzeichen: Pferd über Rad. Literatur: Ausst. Katalog: Gottfried Graf – Retrospektive. Ulm/Stuttgart 1931, Kat. Nr. 29; N. Hüll, Gottfried Graf 1881-1938. Maler und Graphiker, Mitglied des Hölzel-Kreises, Sigmaringen 1986, S. 144, R 40. Hans Reichenbach (1891 Hamburg – Los Angeles/Kalif. 1953) war Physiker, Philosoph und Logiker. Zunächst im württembergischen Postdienst ab 1897 tätig, widmete sich der später auch als Kunstschriftsteller arbeitende Maler und Graphiker Gottfried Graf ab 1904 auch dem künstlerischen Schaffen. Bis 1908 absolvierte er neben seiner Berufstätigkeit an der Stuttgarter Akademie und Kunstgewerbeschule eine Ausbildung als Zeichenlehrer. Anschließend unternahm er gemeinsam mit J.A. Wirth eine Studienreise nach Florenz, Rom und Neapel. Nach seiner Rückkehr 1909 nach Stuttgart wurde er 1910 Schüler von C. Landenberger (1862-1927) und A. Hölzel (1853-1934). 1913, nachdem er aus gesundheitlichen Gründen beurlaubt wurde, unternahm er eine Reise nach Südfrankreich; er begegnete J. Villon (1875-1963) und A. Gleizes (1881-1953), mit letzterem verband ihn eine enge Freundschaft. In diesem Jahr begann die intensive Auseinandersetzung mit der kubistischen Formensprache, die Grafs Werk entscheidend prägen sollte. Bei Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges mußte er sein Studium unterbrechen, er war Wehrdienstunfähig und sein Gesundheitszustand war weiterhin labil, und arbeitete bis Kriegsende als Zeichenlehrer. 1918 Wiederaufnahme des Studiums an der Stuttgarter Akademie. 1919 wurde er Gründungsmitglied der Stuttgarter „Üecht-Gruppe". Bereits ein Jahr später wurde er an die Stuttgarter Akademie als Leiter der Graphischen Abteilung und der Holzschnittklasse berufen, seit 1925 Professor. Wiederholte Reisen nach Frankreich. Ende der 20er Jahre kehrte er zur gegenständlichen Malerei zurück. 1937, von den Nationalsozialisten als „entarteter" diffamiert, wurden seine Arbeite aus den Museen entfernt. Anfänglich noch weiter an der Akademie tätig – er bat selbst um die Versetzung in den Ruhestand –, sah er sich zunehmend öffentlichen Angriffen und Schmähungen seitens seiner Kollegen augesetzt. Nicht zuletzt führten diese Umstände und damit einhergehend die rapide Verschlechterung seines Gesundheitszustandes zu seinem frühen Tod im Alter von 57 Jahren.

        The investor's pocket manual.

      New York: The Financial Press, 1921. 16mo (15.5 cm, 6.1"). 272 pp. Vol. XIII, no. 4 (May, 1921) of a monthly publication offering "current statistics, records and high and low prices of stocks and bonds of railroad, industrial, and mining corporations, also grain, cotton, coffee and provisions." The publisher advertised in contemporary magazines that copies of this "real help to investors" would be "furnished FREE by any investment house . . . on request," and the front wrapper of the present example identifies it as coming from Kurtz Brothers Bankers and Brokers at 1421 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA. There is a great deal here on the structure and value of many, many individual companies.    => These ephemeral guidebooks are not widely institutionally held in the U.S., although a different, quarterly publication of the same title (published by E.A. Pierce & Co.) appears to be somewhat more common. Publisher's printed yellow paper wrappers; creased and lightly soiled, with inked date on spine and pencilled annotations on back wrapper. Text block just starting to pull away from wrappers. Pages age-toned; three leaves separated. => A useful snapshot of the American economy in the spring of 1921.

        Three Soldiers.

      New York: George H. Doran Company, 1921 - Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine and front in orange, top edge orange. With the dust jacket. A fine copy in a superb jacket, only very slightly rubbed at the ends and corners and with the faintest sunning to spine panel. First edition, first printing, first state (three blank leaves to front, none at back and the textual error on p. 213 reading "signing", later corrected to "singing"), second issue jacket (with review excerpts in place of the first issue publisher's blurbs; including a quotation from the Brooklyn Daily Eagle which was replaced with one from the Stars and Stripes' review in the third issue). This is an exceptional copy in jacket of Dos Passos's stark First World War novel, rare thus. Literary critic H. L. Mencken praised the book and its powerful influence in a review published in The Smart Set (October 1922): "Until Three Soldiers is forgotten and fancy achieves its inevitable victory over fact, no war story can be written in the United States without challenging comparison with it—and no story that is less meticulously true will stand up to it. At one blast it disposed of oceans of romance and blather. It changed the whole tone of American opinion about the war; it even changed the recollections of actual veterans of the war. They saw, no doubt, substantially what Dos Passos saw, but it took his bold realism to disentangle their recollections from the prevailing buncombe and sentimentality." Potter 2.

      Paris: Librairie Centrale des Beaux-Arts, 1921. A knockout collection of decorative prints by a fabulous, obscure Parisian designer called Auguste Thomas. Thomas' work is remarkable for his skillful use of verdant, floral patterns combined with dynamic animal forms - springing elk, nestling birds, a greyhound in hot pursuit of a hare. In Formes et Couleurs, we see a vivid palette, boldly experimental work contrasting earthy tones and natural blues with vibrant (seemingly electric) synthetic pinks and oranges. The pochoir process of stencil printing further heightens the effect. And yet, despite the designer's audacity, Thomas' results are wonderfully harmonious, preserving judicious balance within wild juxtapositions of colour and form. Issued as a creative endeavour unto itself, the portfolio also provides a selection of sixty-seven designs for use by interior decorators for furnishing upholstery and textile prints. In this respect, it is a pleasing example of free-form design for practical application. Original folding portfolio with colour onlay containing letterpress titling leaf and 20 pochoir plates measuring 453 mm x 314 mm., some wear to head and tail of the portfolio spine, titling leaf mildly browned, otherwise beautifully preserved.

        The Emperor Jones, Diff'rent, The Straw

      New York: Boni and Liveright, 1921. First Edition, First Printing. SIGNED by Eugene O'Neill on the half title, a book containing three of O'Neill's plays, including his breakthrough play, "The Emperor Jones." A 775-copy signed limited edition of "The Emperor Jones" (without the other two plays) was published in 1928 and is readily obtainable, while signed copies of the play's true first edition, offered here, are remarkably scarce. Small 8vo (7 5/8 inches / 19.3 cm), x, [2], 285 pages, in publisher's original paper-covered boards. Corners bumped, spine darkened, with some fraying to top of spine, some soiling to front board, and edge wear. Bookplate removed from front paste down. Overall, a Very Good copy, lacking the rare dust jacket. Uncommon to the market, and copies signed by O'Neill are especially elusive. SCARCE. "The Emperor Jones" helped to cement O'Neill's reputation as a talented, provocative playwright who would later go on to win the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1936. The play tells the story of an African-American who breaks out of jail, stows away on a ship, lands on a Caribbean island, and declares himself emperor. Performed by the Provincetown Players, the play opened November 1, 1920, in New York to great critical acclaim. Charles S. Gilpin played Emperor Jones. "His is an uncommonly powerful and imaginative performance, in several respects unsurpassed this season in New York," wrote the influential drama critic Alexander Woollcott in The New York Times. The play later went on tour, with the great Paul Robeson playing Emperor Jones in a 1924 London production.

        Garage à Paris. Oel auf Leinwand.

      100 x 81 cm, Lwd. rückseitig min fleckig, Bild tadellos Unten links signiert und datiert. Rückseite handschriftliches Adressschild des Künstlers mit Titel: Walter Meier, Lagerstr. 83, Zürich 4 - Garage à Paris. - Walter Meier (1921-1985) kam in der Nähe des Großmünsters zur Welt. Seine Mutter war italienischer Abstammung. Die Maisschnitten der Mutter und ihre Tauben hatte er seiner Lebtag nie vergessen. Er wollte nach der Schulzeit Schauspieler werden, musste zuerst jedoch einen richtigen Beruf erlernen und machte eine Kaufmännische Lehre. Im Welschland an der Abendhandelsschule in Le Locle stellte er fest, dass er Maler werden wollte. Er machte eine Ausbildung an der École des Beaux-Arts in La Chaux-de-Fonds und in Paris. Bald erhielt er Stipendien vom Bund und der Stadt Zürich. Er konnte aber nicht von der Malerei leben und musste jahrelang seinen Lebensunterhalt in einer Zürcher Pharma-Firma verdienen. Nach seiner frühzeitigen Pensionierung malte er fast nur noch. Er war ein begeisterter Opernbesucher und ein auserlesener Feinschmecker. Meier lebte fast sein ganzes Leben in Zürich. 1981 zog er im Künstlerhaus Boswil ein, wo er in seinen letzten Jahren umsorgt und gepflegt wurde. Er wurde vor allem durch seine Provence-Landschaften bekannt.Meier war Mitglied der Gruppen Zinnober und Réveil.
