        Relation des progrez de la Foy au Royaume de la Cochinchine vers les derniers quartiers du Levant. Envoieé au R.P. General de la Compagnie de Jesus.Paris, Sebastien and Gabriel Cramoisy, 1652. Small 8vo (17 x 11 cm). Modern boards.

      Cordier, Indosinica, col. 1921; De Backer & Sommervogel VI, col. 1719, no. 5. First edition, in French, of an account of Cochin China (now southern Vietnam) and the Jesuit missionary work there, by Father Alexander de Rhodes (Avignon 1591 or 1593 - Isfahan in Persia 1660). Although Rhodes had published an account of Cochin China in Italian in 1650 (see below), the present edition is not simply a translation and appears to include material not found in the earlier work. It was prepared for the press by the Jesuit Jacques de Machault (1599-1676 or 1678) at Caen, who signed the 7-page dedication to Princess Marie Léonor de Rohan and may have written the unsigned "avant-propos". Perhaps he combined information from the Italian work with information from other sources, but the fact that the text is signed by Rhodes from Macao in 1645, while he signed the preliminaries to the 1650 publication from Rome in 1650, suggests that Machault may have worked from a manuscript.With the title-page somewhat worn, but otherwise in very good condition. A first-hand Jesuit account of Vietnam, with a somewhat mysterious origin.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1921 - 1921 Original Hardback Wisden, Special Presentation Wisden.

      Hi, This lot is a 1921 Original Hardback Wisden This year is one of the rarest Hardbacks I find and very under rated in the rarity stakes , this is rare but only in just Good Condition, but very nicely priced. The boards are quite dark and marked , the spine cloth is also a bit dark and the gilt is a touch darkened , the front gilt is bright. Internally the pastedowns follow the dark theme and the hinges are weak but not broken some mesh can be seen between page 2 and 3. Some pencil markings inside. One thing that is special is that to the title page it states ""To C Stewart Caine from Sydney Pardon"" so the current editor to a future editor so this was once owned by an editor of Wisden. Nice inside. Excellent Photoplate and a unique Wisden but condition could be better.

        Boxer: Acht Lithographien Mit einem vorwort vons Hans Breitensträter

      Düsseldorf: Galerie Flechtheim, 1921. No. 52 of 60 albums on Japan, with all eight lithographs hand-colored. Each lithograph and the colophon signed in pencil by Grossmann. (Entire edition 125 copies: 15 not for sale with original drawing; 35 copies on Büttenpapier; 60 copies as this). Published as Mappe XIII, one of the special albums from Galerie Flechtheim. A rare Weimar album devoted to the urbane and ?snobistisch? sport of boxing by an important artist of the time whose work was extensively destroyed by the Nazis. Large folio (13 1/4" x 17 3/4"). Loose sheets in portfolio. Eight hand-colored lithographs. Text and colophon: 6pp. in French, English, and German, illustrated with offset photographs. Board folder (Mappe) with cloth spine (17 1/4" x 21"). Cover lettered in gilt, with photo. Slight soiling of covers. Very fine for text and lithographs. Rare. Most copies broken up for prints or destroyed. Rudolph Grossmann, German artist and illustrator, was born in Freiburg, Germany in 1882. He began his education in painting and printmaking at Düsseldorf Academy. In 1910, he settled in Berlin. A master of portraits, figures, land-and cityscapes, Grossmann began publishing his prints in 1905. Many major publishers in both Germany and France commissioned his work. Though Berlin was his home, he would frequently visit France, both to work and exhibit, and for a brief time, to teach printmaking. In Paris, he became part of the Café du Dôme circle of German artists. Jules Pascin became his teacher and close confidant. During his time in France, he met and became friends with artist George Grosz. While teaching, he introduced techniques to artist Sonia Delaunay, eventually helping launch her career in the art world. Grossmann was already represented by Paul Cassirer in Berlin, who printed his first seven drawings in the magazine Kunst und Künstler between 1911 and 1914. In 1914, Alfred Flechtheim exhibited the Parisian group of Dôme artists, including Grossmann, in his Düsseldorf gallery. Grossmann documented life in Berlin in 1933 in his portraits and street scenes like no other artist. In 1928, Grossmann was appointed professor at the Kunsthochschule Berlin, and also became a member of the Berlin Secession and the Deutscher Künstlerbund. In 1934, after the seizure of power by the Nazis, Grossmann was discharged and returned to Freiburg. His art was declared degenerate, and 206 of his works were confiscated. His works were included in the Nazis? ?Degenerate Art? exhibition in 1937 (one of only six Jews to be included), and 391 of his works were removed from German museums. Grossmann died in 1941 following a serious illness. Since many of his works were destroyed by the Nazis, he has never regained the popularity that he once had. The publisher of this album is Alfred Flechtheim (1878-1937), a German art dealer, art collector, and journalist. A victim of Nazi anti-Semitism, he was forced to emigrate in 1933, and died, impoverished, in London in 1937. In 1913, he opened his gallery and became known as the leading dealer in Germany for modern French art, much of it obtained through his friend Daniel-Henry Kahnweiler, the eminent Parisian gallerist and German émigré. Despite his ambivalence toward contemporary German art, Flechtheim eventually also exhibited a select number of Expressionist, Bauhaus, and Neue Sachlichkeit (New Objectivity) artists, including Ernst Barlach, Max Beckmann, George Grosz (under contract from 1925 to 1931), Paul Klee (whom he represented from 1927 to 1933), Oskar Kokoschka, Wilhelm Lehmbruck, and August Macke. Flechtheim also published prints by Grosz, Else Lasker-Schüler, Ludwig Meidner, and many other now less familiar German artists. In 1921, Flechtheim began to issue the cosmopolitan art and culture periodical Der Querschnitt [Cross Section], and three years later, sold it to the publishing house Propyläen. Always profusely illustrated, culturally urbane, Der Querschnitt ?attempted to define just what was aesthetically important for the German?and even the European? sophisticate? (Esau, 870). Lighthearted and snobistisch, it was ?written in a literate style that presages the New Yorker?s famed ?Notes and Comments? sections (872). In addition to the periodical, Flechtheim also published a series of special ?mappe? (folder or album) titles with original etchings or lithographs. These special limited editions were aimed toward the wealthy art ?amateur.? Grossmann?s Boxer: Acht Lithographien is an example. The sport of boxing was prominent in the illustrations and essays in Der Querschnitt, with much made of Grossmann?s lithographic portfolio depicting boxers in motion. Der Querschnitt?s merging of high art and popular culture to epitomize cosmopolitanism and a breezy elitist style began to coalesce by the second year of its publication (871). Avid interest in boxing and ?Boxing als Kunst? (boxing as art) was part of Berlin cultural life as it was in Paris. Weimar German boxing symbolized a type of heroics that appealed to the vanquished German people. In modern boxing?s promise of a ?different kind of person? lay the reason why both the left and the right, both Brecht and Hitler, admired the sport. Flechtheim, who may have been homosexual, appreciated and published male nudes including ?aestheticized views of Flechtheim?s favourite boxers in classic nude poses.? The magazine?s ?emphasis on sport and dance was often tied to an eroticized concept of the body so integral to Weimar Germany?s approach to modern culture? (879). Flechtheim declared in a 1921 editorial a duty to ?promote boxing in German artistic circles as has long been the case elsewhere. In Paris Braque, Derain, Dufy, Matisse, Picasso and Rodin are all enthusiastic boxing fans? (Boddy, 61). Fletchtheim also held ?regular soirées where members of the intelligentsia...could mingle with boxers such as Hans Breitensträter? (1897-1972), who was charismatic, blonde, beautiful and athletic, and who also played the violin, bred orchids, and collected teddy bears. Also part of Flechtheim?s circle was Paul Samson-Körner and Max Schmeling. These soirees led to the publication of the Grossmann portfolio, which included Breitensträter?s short autobiography.

"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 (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.
