        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.

        Funfzig Zeichnungen; Pastelle und Aquarelle Aus Dem Besitz Der Nationalgalerie.

      Berlin - Julius Bard 1921 - 50 pastels and watercolours by the German artist Adolph Menzel, printed in Berlin under the Weimar Republic. Adolph Menzel was one of the most popular and significant 19th century German artists. His work was mostly produced and exhibited in Germany, and was there acquired quickly by national galleries. This in part accounts for his prominence and popularity within Germany. By the early 20th century he held a significant place within German culture. This book was produced in 1921, when the young Weimar Republic was about to enter a period of damaging hyperinflation, and faced many other threats to its stability besides. Moreover, the identity crisis in Germany following her defeat in the first world war was profound. One can see this work in that context, representing abeautiful artisticrelic of Germany's cultural florescence in the previous century. This is number 266 of 400 copies numbered by hand. Collated: completeCondition: In quarter vellum with paper covered boards. Externally sound with a little wear to the extremities and some marking to the spine. Internally clean and bright and firmly bound. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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]

      J. Povolozky, Paris 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.

"The remarkable adventures of an English boy, kidnapped at the beginning of the War, and taken to an islet in the Greek Archipelago. His story centers round the discovery of a Quarto Edition of Shakespeare's Tempest, the most interesting literary find of the century - within which are concealed the clues to a hidden treasure. Contrary to all the accepted traditions, Shakespeare's uninhabited island turns out to be in the Mediterranean, and to be still in the possession of descendants of the original Prospero, served like their ancestor by a Caliban. It falls to the Boy-hero to assist in unraveling the cipher, and in delivering the island and its owners from the domination of the enemy". Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket.

The idea of Geo Milev is to create a modern European magazine, a proud successor of Bulgarian magazines such as "Thought" and "Artist". The newspaper published not only works of Bulgarian authors, but also translated works from English, German, French. Starts mainly in the field of symbolism in the second and third anniversary already passed the ideas of expressionism, whose chief representative in our literature is the editor - Geo Milev. Here as he says in the manifesto of the second number: ¿It should reach the coast of art - fine art. Bulgarian literature must go out by itself - out of the tradition, of national, contemporary and popular. (.) Because comes era of full unification in art: this is the most important process in the history of modern art. Bulgarian art Bulgarian literature should not, and can not, remain an exception - it must unify itself with other literatures - should reach other literatures. It means to leave the tradition of national, contemporary and popular - cease to be a bit literature. To this target aspirations of a group of Bulgarian writers who gray rumor of epithets called "modernists". To this must be directed aspirations of Bulgarian writer, otherwise it will remain backward - a past lifetime¿. Unfortunately this third (unfinished) year becomes the last for this remarkable Bulgarian magazine. See Domenico Jacono "Bulgarian modernism, books and magazines 1919-1934" cat. No. 1, p. 11.

Broadside, measuring 29 by 41 inches, closely framed. $6000.Very large original movie poster produced for the 1921 re-release of D.W. Griffith's pioneering film, The Birth of a Nation.Griffith's dramatization of the American Civil War and Reconstruction, based on Thomas Dixon's 1905 novel The Clansmen, was immediately controversial for its racist depiction of African Americans and its heroic portrayal of the Ku Klux Klan; it is now considered instrumental in the revival of the KKK in the 1920s. The poster, composed entirely of text in red and black within a black border, reads: ""The Supreme Picture / Of All Time! / Birth / Of A / Nation / D.W. Griffith's / 8th Wonder of the World / 18,000 People / 3,000 Horses / 3 Years to Produce!"" First released in 1915, the 1921 re-release elicited the comment ""The supreme picture of all time"" from the New York Mail, used here as the opening line.

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.

      [Tucson: Acme Printing Company, 1921]., 1921. First edition. First edition. 8vo. Original black fabricoid, title in gilt on front cover, 141 [4] pp., dedication, foreword, introduction, preface, illustrated, plates, portraits. The Tenth Cavalry was organized in 1866 when Congress provided for black regiments in the reorganization bill of 1866. The Act of Increase and Fix the Military Peace Establishment of the United States provided "that to the six regiments of cavalry now in service, there shall be added four regiments, two of which shall be composed of colored men." These two became the Ninth and Tenth Regiments of Cavalry. Colonel Benjamin H. Grierson arrived at Fort Leavenworth to organize the regiment which at that time only existed on the statute books. Glass covers the organization and composition of the unit, its early field service, being Buffalo Soldiers in Arizona, and combat in Cuba and the Philippines. Also involved in the Punitive Expedition after Pancho Villa raided Columbus, New Mexico. Appendix A of this work provides the engagements of the regiment and brief extracts from the Regimental Returns. This regimental history is not widely known and is quite rare. Not in Eberstadt, Howes, Decker, etc. Only 100 copies were printed for friends and family. Interestingly, out of the numerous photographs in this book, only one depicts the "old-timers," which includes some black soldiers. Inked signatures and addresses of some of the unit's members are on the last blank pages, including Oscar Knox, to whom this copy belonged. Very good copy.

        Birth of a Nation Poster

      1921. (GRIFFITH, D.W.). Birth of a Nation Poster. No place, [1921]. Broadside, measuring 29 by 41 inches, closely framed. $6000.Very large original movie poster produced for the 1921 re-release of D.W. Griffith's pioneering film, The Birth of a Nation.Griffith's dramatization of the American Civil War and Reconstruction, based on Thomas Dixon's 1905 novel The Clansmen, was immediately controversial for its racist depiction of African Americans and its heroic portrayal of the Ku Klux Klan; it is now considered instrumental in the revival of the KKK in the 1920s. The poster, composed entirely of text in red and black within a black border, reads: ""The Supreme Picture / Of All Time! / Birth / Of A / Nation / D.W. Griffith's / 8th Wonder of the World / 18,000 People / 3,000 Horses / 3 Years to Produce!"" First released in 1915, the 1921 re-release elicited the comment ""The supreme picture of all time"" from the New York Mail, used here as the opening line. This rare poster may be an example of a job printing for a local movie house. Fine condition.

        Selections From The Work of P.A. de Laszlo.

      London: Hutchinson and co., n.d. [1921]. Signed Limited Edition. Folio. Bound in publisher's original quarter blue cloth over pale blue cloth boards, beveled edges with gilt ribbon motif to centre of front board, and gilt titles to spine; front and bottom edges uncut, blue and gilt marbled endpapers. Illustrated with 64 of his portaits in black and white photogravure. Dual language, French and English. With bookplate. In a limited edition of 300, this is number 1. Together with the author's signature to the limitation notice, and the author's bookplate opposite to half title, this is understood to be the author's own copy. Armorial bookplate, "Veritas Vincti Spes Mea In Deo", "P.A. Laszlo de Lombos, MVO". Binding is a little rubbed, bumping and some fraying to corners, bumping to spine ends, cloth is a little grubby. Internally clean, free from foxing, with some dampstaining throughout. The plates, and their labelled tissue guards, show well. De Laszlo was a significant, though now somewhat forgotten, portrait painter, perhaps one of the most significant of the late Victorian and early twentieth century periods. His subjects were typically aristocratic, or royal, or high ranking members of the Catholic church; this volume includes a representative sample, featuring the King Edward VII, Prince Chlodwig Hohenlohe-Schillingsfurst, and Pope Leo XIII - the last of which made his name in Europe. He lived and worked in Hungary for many years, though his fame spread across Europe, until the death of his young daugther in 1903 led him to move to London and become naturalized as a British citizen. In 1909, Edward VII made him a Member of the Royal Victorian Order. Despite this, he was interned during the First World War. Following Walter Sickert, de Laszlo was made President of the Royal Society of British Arists in 1930, demonstrating the esteem in which his work was held.

        [Four Autograph Letters, Signed]

      Lake Hill, NY, 1921. Twelve pages, densely written in ink, on four folded quarto lettersheets. Professionally silked, otherwise very good. To editor Periton Maxwell, at the time evidently associated with LESLIE'S MAGAZINE, two signed in full, two signed simply "Richard," relating to publishing and personal matters and forwarding manuscript submissions (not present). A sampling of the correspondence reads as follows: "Thank you for the copies of Judge, which reached me this morning ... I hope, by the way, that in sending you the stories enclosed herein [not present] (The Girl With the Brown-Paper Parcel & The Soul of the Apple) that you will not feel that I am snowing you under with MS. I am sending them because of a prospectus from Leslie's which I rec'd a short time ago ....''; "You will have seen the recent statement of a school-master that the boy's mind is a 'pig-sty,' only to be kept in order by severe discipline in Latin & Greek. The enclosed lines are by way of rebuttal on behalf of the school-boy ....''; and "Here I am once more wallowing innocently with the bears--& this is just a line to thank you for the friendly way you helped me, during my little emergency ... I know you'll be glad to hear that I am to get my hundred a week from Block, had no difficulty at all about it ....'' Accompanied by a copy of the uncommon pamphlet, AN OPEN LETTER FROM RICHARD LE GALLIENNE TO LAURENCE J. GOMME RELATING TO THE LITTLE BOOK-SHOP AROUND THE CORNER (New York, 1915, printed at the Village Press). The pamphlet has also been silked, over some earlier pencil annotations on the title-panel (Cary 111).

        Modes et Manieres d'Aujourd'hui

      1921. First Edition . Signed. MARTY, André AND BERNARD, Tristan. Modes et Manières d’Aujourd’hui. Huitième Année. 1919. (Paris): Collection Pierre Corrard, (1921). Folio, original half ivory and decorative paper boards, plates loose as issued, original cloth ties. Housed in a custom slipcase. $9500.Limited first edition of Modes et Manières d’Aujourd’hui, Volume VIII for the year 1919, number 4 of only 12 copies issued on Japon (of 300 copies), featuring 12 loose pochoir color plates, accompanying suite of 12 uncolored plates, and original matted watercolor signed by French artist Andre Edouard Marty, the leading Art Deco artist whose work, like that of Barbier and others, “made fashion the art of the day instead of art being the fashion” (Metropolitan Museum of Art), with 12 leaves of accompanying text in French by popular playwright and novelist Tristan Bernard, rarely found complete in the original portfolio.This original limited edition portfolio highlights the splendid Art Deco artistry of Andre Edouard Marty, who shared with Georges Barbier, Charles Martin and others a love of “elegance and luxe… They fused their styles from a heady mix: Japanese woodblock prints, classical Greek and Roman art, modern stage and costume design, and the cinema… The result of this alchemy was a new way of illustrating the figure” (Torre, 20th-Century Fashion Illustration, 33). “As Vogue reported in the June 15, 1914 issue, these ‘young men of birth and Beaux Arts training… made fashion the art of the day instead of art being the fashion… artistic modernism provided a crucial link between haute couture and high culture” (Metropolitan Museum of Art). Marty, also well known for his theatre posters, was one of an elite group of only four artists who contributed yearly to Gazette du Bon Ton (1912-25) and his images were regularly featured in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Modes et Manières d’Aujord’hui and other publications.This rare complete Volume VIII of Modes et Manières d’Aujourd’hui, for the year 1919, in the original portfolio, additionally contains 12 corresponding short works by noted French author Tristan Bernard, each printed in green and black on an individual leaf, loose as issued. Born Paul Bernard, the Jewish playwright and novelist was a member of the influential circle, La Revue Blanche. Well known in Paris, his witty “bon mots were so famous that for three decades he was credited with many of the jokes current in France. Bernard wrote several novels, notably Les Mémoires d’un jeune homme rangé (1899)… he is best remembered, however, as the author of such hilarious comedies as Les pieds nickelés (1895)… He was arrested by the Nazis during WWII but was released following the intervention of influential friends” in 1943. Weakened by his imprisonment he died in Paris four years later (Encyclopedia Judaica). Featured in this exquisite limited edition collection are 12 loose pochoir color plates La Démobilisation, Le Matin Dans le Parc, Le Répétition Générale, Le Golf, Le Ciné, Le Bal de Sauvages, Racing, A L’Oasis, La Jupe Lumineuse, Le Samedi a Médrano, La Rythmique, Chez L’Antiquaire, and Les Ailes Dans le Vent. These are accompanied by a suite of 12 respective uncolored plates, and an original matted watercolor of Le Golf, signed by Marty. Volume VIII of Modes et Manières d’Aujourd’hui, which first appeared in 1912: a hghly influential Art Deco fashion periodical, each of its volumes contains plates by a featured artist and text by a featured writer. Publication ceased in 1923 with a total of 7 volumes, each limited to a total of 300 copies. Complete volumes in the original portfolios are quite rare. Plates and text very fresh, small bit of early tape reinforcement to inner seams of portfolio.

        Trembling of a Leaf

      1921. MAUGHAM, W. Somerset. The Trembling of a Leaf. London: William Heinemann, (1921). Small octavo, original dark blue cloth gilt, original dust jacket. $3800.Scarce first English edition, one of only 3000 copies, of Maugham’s collection of “little Stories of the South Sea Islands,” including his famous, frequently adapted story, “Rain.” A beautiful copy.Maugham's collection of tales set in Hawaii, Samoa and Tahiti ""established him as a short story writer… [In the book he] filed the patent on a certain kind of story, set in the tropics and usually describing the undoing of the characters because they have failed to understand their surroundings. The collection included his most famous story, 'Rain'… Critics agreed that here was something they had not seen before. The Bookman in November said the stories were 'as savage and gripping as some of the paintings by Goya.' The Saturday Review… said that 'each tale is begun by inspiration and completed by artistic perfection'… James Michener wrote in 1952 that 'one of the evil limitations put upon anyone who wants to write about the South Pacific is that he must stop reading Maugham… At the same time I must admit that before I start to do any writing about this vast area I usually take down 'Rain' and reread those first three paragraphs to remind myself of how completely one can set a physical stage in a few absolutely correct observations'"" (Morgan, 256-58). ""Rain,"" Maugham's celebrated story of a missionary's attempts to convert the prostitute Sadie Thompson, has been adapted to film numerous times—a 1928 silent movie starring Gloria Swanson and Lionel Barrymore; a 1932 film starring Joan Crawford and Walter Huston; and a 3-D feature in 1953 starring Rita Hayworth and José Ferrer—and was the basis of a 1944 stage play, Sadie Thompson. Publisher's 10-page catalogue at rear. Published October 6, 1921, less than a month after the first edition in New York (September 17). Both the American and English editions consisted of 3000 copies. Stott, Writings of Maugham A26a. Stott, Maughamiana 20.
