        Jekaba Kazaka (dz. 1895 +1920 g.): peeminas izstade. Riga, No 26 marta -- 14 aprilim 1922 g. Pilsetas Makslas Muzeja [Calendar of the memorial exhibition of works by Jekabs Kazaks, at the Riga City Art Museum]

      Riga: City Art Museum; ("Dzintars" typography), 1922. Small octavo (16.5 × 11.1 cm). Stapled wrappers with original woodcut design (by Niklavs Strunke?); [8] pp. One leaf of plates, two-sided, featuring two reproductions of works by Kazaks. Very good; wrappers very lightly toned along edges; lower corner of first leaf lightly creased. Rare exhibition catalog in memory of the Latvian modernist painter and graphic artist Jekabs Kazaks, who was instrumental in bringing international creative trends to the Latvian capital and served as the chairman of the Riga Artists' Group (Rigas Makslinieku Grupa, formed 1920), which issued this publication in his memory. Two works are reproduced within, a 1917 self-portrait and another painting entitled "Genre". The brief introduction mentions that nearly all of Kazaks' drawings and paintings are included in the exhibition, sorted by year, and ranging from 1915 to his tragically early death in 1920. In his recent introduction to Latvian interwar publishing, James Fraser notes: "This slender memorial exhibition from March 26 to April 14, 1922, celebrated one of the key figures in the establishment of the modern tradition in Latvian art, despite his untimely death. 249 pieces covering the years 1915 to 1920--essentially Kazaks' entire oeuvre--was shown. Dace Lamberga has provided the most significant assessment of Kazaks in her monograph, Jekabs Kazaks (Riga: Neputns, 2007)" (Fraser p. 169). Fraser L409. References: James H. Fraser, Publishing and Book Design in Latvia 1919-1940: a Re-discovery (Riga: Neputns, 2014). KVK, OCLC show a single copy at Frick Art Reference Library.

        Vorlesungen zur Einführung in die Psychoanalyse.

      Leipzig, Vienna & Zurich Internationaler Psychoanalytischer Verlag,, 1922. Small octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine and front cover in gilt, rounded spine, top edge red, green cotton page marker. Text in German. Light spotting to spine, faint foxing to edges, minor rubbing to extremities; a very good, bright copy. First pocket or Taschenausgabe edition. Inscribed copy, signed by the author on the front free endpaper 'S. Freud, 1926'. This is the fourth revision of the original text originally published in three parts from 1916–17. The lectures in this work were given at the University of Vienna from 1915 to 1917. These lectures have become the most widely translated of any of Freud's oeuvre, and were first published in English in an American edition as "A General Introduction to Psychoanalysis" in 1920. Peter Gay reports that Freud was dismissive of the lectures, calling them a "coarse work, intended for the masses". Stanley Hall wrote in his preface for the 1920 edition that, "These twenty-eight lectures to laymen are elementary and almost conversational. Freud sets forth with a frankness almost startling the difficulties and limitations of psychoanalysis, and also describes its main methods and results as only a master and originator of a new school of thought can do".

      Moscow: Izd-vo Russkogo teatral'nogo obshchestva, 1922-1923. #1, 1922. 111, [1] pp.: ill. #2, 1923. 111, [1] pp.: ill. 22x17,5 cm. Both in original constructivist wrappers designed by Stenberg brothers. Very good. Some general light soiling of the wrappers, small tears and losses of the spine, front wrapper detached (#2). Full set. #1 of 2000 copies, #2 of 1250 copies. Extremely rare periodical of the 1920s with many valuable materials. These are the only two issues of Kamerny Theatre's periodical. Issues include such interesting materials as photos of the theatre hall, set workshop, touring theatre company, portraits of A. Koonen, E. Uvarova, I. Arkadin and Tairov's portraits, sketch of set and costume designs by P. Kuznetsov for the first theatre's production 'Sakuntala', timetable of the productions, excerpts from set designers diaries, A. Lopukhin drawings, travel notes, K. Bal'mont's article on Kamerny theatre and literature (including his unpublished poem; #2, p.39), and other. Articles by leading experimental theatre experts of the time dedicated to problems of composition, theatre as science and as art, contemporary drama, set design, operetta, European theatre, classical theatre, puppet theatre, and other. The Kamerny Theatre in Moscow was founded by the director Alexander Tairov (1885-1950) in 1914. There he created a fruitful field for experiments by staging foreign plays and including in his productions ballet, opera, music, mime, drama. It first became an alternative to the realism of Konsantin Stanislavsky's Moscow Art Theatre. Over the next 35 years, this small, intimate theatre became ''recognized as a major force in Russian theatre''. Among the many reforms associated with the Kamerny are the use of different elements like music, dance, gesture, and the inclusion of chanted or intoned speech as well as constructivist art by Stenberg brothers. In many of its choreographed movements, which made use of offbeat rhythms and atonal sound patterns, the Kamerny anticipated certain dance configurations now associated with modern dance. (Britannica) The theatre was as much loved as criticized during its existence by different parties, and eventually shut down in 1949.

Préface de Frantz Jourdain. 32 planches en couleur reproduisant des dessins de Mallet-Stevens datés 1917 et 1921 (cm 22,5x32,5 - 32,5x22,5). En feuilles, portefeuille de l'éditeur Chiusura della cartella con laccetti. Cm 33,5x24. pp. 8+ 32 tavole. . Ottimo (Fine). . . . Studiò all'École spéciale d'architecture, interessandosi contemporaneamente all'opera di H. Hoffmann (l'architetto viennese costruì a Bruxelles la casa Stoclet per lo zio) e di R. Mackintosh. Al Salon d'automne del 1912, dove espose i suoi primi progetti (soprattutto arredamenti), ebbe modo di conoscere P. Chareau e altri artisti, animati dallo stesso intento di rinnovamento che porterà alla costituzione nel 1929 dell'Union des artistes modernes. I suoi progetti per "Une cité moderne" (1922) dettero l'avvio a un approfondimento rivelatore dell'attenzione per la poetica di De Stijl e per le inedite possibilità offerte dal cemento come creatore di un nuovo stile. Dalla villa de Noailles a Hyères (1923), scelta da Man Ray per girarvi il cortometraggio "Les Mystères du Chateau du dé" (1928), ai padiglioni per l'esposizione delle arti decorative del 1925, alla strada che porta il suo stesso nome (1926-27), alla caserma dei pompieri di rue Mesnil (1936), ai padiglioni per l'esposizione di Parigi del 1937, l'opera di M.-S. è tra le testimonianze più interessanti del movimento moderno. Per la sua attività di scenografo, esemplare è la sua partecipazione al film l'"Inhumaine" (1923) di M. L'Herbier, a fianco di F. Leger, Chareau, D. Milhaud. Dal 1930 fu nel comitato direttivo de "L'architecture d'aujourd'hui". [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Cy Comencent Les Chroniques de Jherusalem Abregies [manuscript facsimile of the original Chronicles of the Crusades in the Austrian National Library]

      [Vienna 1922 - (21 x 11 inches). 34 pages, on fine vellum, written in a batarde hand in red and black ink. 2 full-page and 83 half-page, quarter-page, and column width miniatures illuminated in full color and burnished gold, numerous illuminated initials, all within alternating red and blue borders with gold decoration. Original vellum over bevelled oak boards. Housed in a black morocco backed box. Provenance: Ralph C. Runyon (letters by the artist laid in) Astounding manuscript facsimile of a celebrated illuminated manuscript account of the Second Crusade. The Croniques de Jherusalem is among the prized possessions of the Austrian National Library. The richly illuminated codex, of which this manuscript is a painstaking exact copy, was prepared on behalf of Phillip the Good, (also known as Phillip III, Duke of Burgundy) circa 1450. Recent scholarship has attributed the original to the Master of Girart de Rouissillon, naming the codex as among his finest works. Phillip the Good is best remembered for his extravagant court, his taste for luxury and his patronage of the arts. During his reign, some six hundred illuminated manuscripts were commissioned, including the Croniques de Jherusalem. The original manuscript came into possession of Emperor Mathias and was passed down by inheritance to Emperor Max I, being notable enough to be mentioned in the inventory of the Treasury at that time. In the mid-18th century, the codex passed to the Imperial Library, later to be renamed the National Library. In 1922, artist, antiquary and publisher Annete von Eckardt was given permission to copy the famed manuscript, which to that time had not been reproduced. Von Eckardt, perhaps best known for her relationship with Franz Marc, was an extraordinary artist and colourist, as evidenced by this manuscript. In a note laid in, Eckardt describes the two year process by which she accomplished the work: "The original miniatures are shown very rarely and only by exceptional permission. Thanks to the kindness of the Director Herr Smital for two long years of tedious work it was possible to copy leaf by leaf with the aid of a magnifying glass. Again and again every detail of the work was compared with the original, while the precious leaves were kept under a protecting sheet of glass. Great difficulties were produced by the poor light in the library, which being situated in the old in period castle is entirely equipped in the style of the middle ages. Of course to execute the minute work of the miniatures no ordinary water-colours could be used: the lapis lazuli blue, scarlet red, turquois green had to be prepared with the aid of the yellow of eggs, honey, etc. etc. All the gold consists of pure gold and is finished by polishing with an agate style and will never tarnish. Such difficult and tedious copying of precious and antique masterpieces can hardly be expected, if at all, more than once. Therefore, this exquisite work of art, the Chronology of the Crusades, will ever be increasing in value as time goes on." An extraordinary work of art. Cf. Osterreichische Nationalbibliothek, Cod. 2533. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        DEFINITION OF CONSTRUCTIVISM] Konstruktivizm [i.e. Constructivism]

      Tverskoe izdatel'stvo, Tver' 1922 - [2], 70 pp. 23,5x20 cm. In original letterpress wrappers attributed to Aleksandr Rodchenko. Very good. Occasional pencil markings in the text, a few small tears of the wrappers, tiny bits of the spine missing. First edition. One of 2000 copies. Very rare. Aleksei Gan's Constructivism was the first theoretical work of constructivist movement and became its declaration. He defined its three core principles - tectonics, texture and construction which made artists and architects in his words 'constructors' who must focus on the fusion of art with everyday life to create a system of design where ''everything will be conceived in a technical and functional way'' - a fitting contribution to the great task of building the new communist society. Aleksei Gan (1893-1942) was a Russian avant-grade artist and art theorist, a key figure among Russia's post-revolutionary avant-garde, working across theatre, architecture, graphics and cinema. The book was penned, typeset and printed by Gan himself. His layout is one of the first experiments in Constructivist typography and graphic design. Worldcat locates physical copies in Art Institute of Chicago, Getty, Harvard, Met, MOMA, Princeton, Stanford, NYPL, National Gallery of Art Library, University of Michigan, Ohio State University, University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign.

        [Photo Album]: Overpass being built in Kensington, Ohio 1922

      Kensignton, Ohio, 1922. Near Fine. Oblong octavo. String-tied gray cloth over paper boards with "Photographs" stamped on the front boards. An album of 68 sepia toned photographs each measuring 1.5" x 2.5" each captioned by hand. Near fine with slight fading on the boards with about fine or better photos. A photo album kept by a citizen of Kensington, Ohio documenting the construction of a railroad undergrade bridge overpass in 1922. The photos show the sights of the town including Town Hall and "Charley Bixby's Famous Boiled Liver Restaurant and Hotel Deluxe" before showing the work being done on the railroad in September of 1922. Throughout the album are photos of equipment such as concrete mixers and pile drivers, newly erected abutments, and men working on the tracks. The photographer was likely part of the work crew as the captions are full of quips and nicknames, for instance one page is dedicated to "the professor." One photo of three workers sitting on the tracks is captioned, "prutty durn hot" and another reads, "cuple of sheeks?"A unique view of a town wide project and the men who made it happen.

        BRAZIL: MAPPA GERAL DO BRASIL. / TERCEIRA EDICAO POPULAR DO JORNAL DO BRASIL, SETEMBERO DE 1922. EDICAO ESPECIAL DO CENTENARIO.

      [Sao Paulo:] Seccao cartográfica da Comp. Litographica Ypiranga, . 1922 - Colour off-set print, dissected into 2 large sections and mounted upon original linen, original folds (Very Good, just some light wear along dissection edges and original folds; and slight fraying to edges of linen), 112.5 x 66.5 cm (44 x 26 inches). This rare and highly attractive wall map of Brazil was commissioned by the Jornal do Brasil, a leading daily newspaper, to commemorate the centenary of the independence of the country (Brazil attained its sovereignty from Portugal in 1822). The map was published in São Paulo by the cartography division of Companiha Litographica Ypiranga, a popular printer of books and ephemera.The map is beautifully designed, showcasing all of Brazil in it majesty. Each of the republic’s 22 divisions (20 states, 1 territory, and 1 Federal District), are defined in their own bright colours, with their new limits according to the 1921 Brazilian Conference on Interstate Boundaries (as explained in the text, lower-left corner). The capital of Brazil was then Rio de Janeiro, with the Federal District comprising of only a tiny (1.164 sq. km) portion of Rio’s old town. Moreover, the map depicts the rectangular ‘Futuro Districto Federal’, carved out of Goiás state, in Central Brazil, being the recently designated future site of Brasilia (which would not become the national capital until 1960). The ‘Convencoes’ table, lower-left, identifies symbols used the designate various levels of major cities and towns (including state capitals); the locations of lighthouses; the delineation of overland and submarine telegraph lines and radio telegraph stations; the routes of railway lines (solid red lines – completed; intermittent red – under construction); as well as oceanic and inland shipping routes. In the lower-right corner of the map is a magnificent cartouche, festooned with national symbols, containing portraits of the rulers of Brazil since 1822: including its two emperors (Dom Pedro I & II) and its eleven presidents (Brazil became a republic in 1889), including the dates of their administration. Below is a fascinating statistical table, detailing the population, land area, population density, capital cities (with their populations) of each Brazilian state; all according to the 1920 census. Brazil then had a population of 30.636 million (against today’s 210 million!). Additionally, in the lower-left corner, the map is adorned with a view of the Jornal do Brazil’s grand headquarters, in Rio de Janeiro. The newspaper was established in 1891, in the wake of the nation becoming a republic. Under the influence of one of its founders, the famous writer Joaquim Nabuco, the Jornal quickly became one of Brazil’s most popular conservative dailies, being both immensely influential and controversial. By 1922, it had shed it scrappy image, and was a cornerstone of the Brazilian media establishment, a role it still occupies to this very day. The present special Centennial Edition of the map is third edition of the Mappa do Brasil series issued for the Jornal do Brasil. The first issue was published in 1911 by the firm of Hartmann-Reichenbach. The present third edition is more decorative and vibrant than the first, having been printed by Litographica Ypiranga of São Paulo (founded in 1901), a trendy, rising star of the Brazilian publishing industry. Due to its ephemeral nature, all editions of the Jornal’s Mappa do Brasil are very rare today. The present 1922 Centennial Edition seems to be especially scarce; we can trace the existence of only a couple of other examples.
