On y vit surgir bon nombre de pièces importantes empruntées aux collections de Paris, de Londres ou de Bruxelles; ces oeuvres s'éclairaient les unes les autres; leur contact amenait des comparaisons; s'il est vrai que certains chaînons y soient apparus, les organisateurs n'auront pas fait oeuvre vaine.

        Printer's advertisement for Ulysses

      1922 - (BEACH, Sylvia) JOYCE, James. Printer's advertisement for Ulysses. Paris: Shakespeare and Company, circa 1931. Single printed sheet, measuring 5-1/2 by 5 inches. $13,500.Original Shakespeare and Company printer's advertisement for the works of James Joyce, annotated at length on the verso by Sylvia Beach listing the publication and availability of the first three parts of Finnegans Wake while still under the working title Works in Progress.After working seven years on Ulysses, Joyce, desperate to find a publisher, turned to Sylvia Beach of Shakespeare and Company in Paris. "Within a month of the publication, the first printing of Ulysses was practically sold out, and within a year Joyce had become a well-known literary figure" (de Grazia, 27). From that point forward, Beach represented Joyce and his work in nearly every capacity, " facing down outraged critics, legal rulings and printers who refused to take on Joyce's work" (British Library). This printer's advertisement reflects Beach's lifelong commitment to promoting Joyce's work, including through the writing of Finnegans Wake, seen here when it was still Work in Progress. The lengthy notations cover the verso and are entirely in Beach's hand: "1st fragment of 'Work in Progress' published in New York by Crosby Gage 1928 Anna Livia Plurabelle (from part I) 650 copies all signed. 2nd fragment Tales Told of Shem & Shaun (from part II) The Black Sun Press, Paris 1929. 3rd fragment Babou & Kahane, Paris 1930 Haveth Childers Everywhere from part III. Parts I and III and a small section of part II of Work in Progress appeared in the review Transition Nos 1-8 and III to 15." Interestingly, Finnegans Wake led to the undoing of Beach and her bookshop. Shakespeare and Company "closed in December 1941, when a Nazi officer threatened to confiscate the stock of the bookshop if Sylvia did not sell him her only copy of the novel" (Fitch, 393). Beach had endured a downturn in business, hiding her stock from the Nazis, the deaths of her husband and James Joyce. Ultimately, she could not endure the perversion of Joyce's legacy. This printer's advertisement represents the twilight years of Joyce's brilliant career, before he succumbed to illness and disability, when the possibilities of Finnegans Wake, still unfinished, seemed limitless and Sylvia Beach had no reason to believe her reign as the most powerful literary figure in Paris would ever end. Small repricing overlay reading "Frs. 12" on recto. Printed telephone number on recto crossed out with new number neatly stamped below. Two annotations in an unknown hand: [below Ulysses] "in paper covers cloth binding" and [below Pomes Penyeach] "(out of print)."About-fine condition.

This treatise demonstrates the future Presidents prescient transformation from an industrialist to a politician. "We cannot ever afford to rest at ease in the comfortable assumption that right ideas always prevail by some virtue of their own. In the long run they do. But there can be and there have been periods of centuries when the world slumped back toward darkness merely because great masses of men became impregnated with wrong ideas and wrong social philosophies."

Sharp and tight, essentially a fine copy with some spotting to the page edges and a trifle of bumping and shelfwear.

        50 Songs (First Edition)

      Redding, CT: C.E. Ives, 1922. First Edition. First Edition. A self-published volume of songs by Charles Ives, selected from a volume published earlier the same year, titled "114 Songs." Like "114 Songs," this was printed for distribution among the composer's friends, and judging from the small number of copies in world libraries (OCLC locates 12 libraries with copies, whereas 106 are listed with copies of "114 Songs"), it must surely have had a much smaller printing. A selection of "folk songs" by Ives, many dedicated to the work of literary greats of the generation that preceded him (Shelley, Wordsworth, Goethe, Longfellow). Characteristically, simple melody lines are played against a complex and sometimes argumentative accompaniment. Very Good in tan paper-covered boards, with a brown quarter-binding, moderately worn at the corners, brief spotting to the front board, and a touch of wear to the paper spine label, firm and clean overall. Contemporary owner name in fountain pen at the top right corner of the front board and the front endpaper.

Tiratura limitata di 1333 esemplari numerati stampati nell'Officina Fratelli Magnani di Pescia. Esemplare firmato dall'autore e dall'editore (Ettore Cozzani). Il libro è considerato l'opera principale di Sartorio; Sibilla si rifa' alla leggenda medioevale di Lionello e Sibilla: lui Cavaliere di Santa Romana Chiesa, lei maga incantatrice, abitante degli inferi. Una parte delle splendide illustrazioni, elaborate dal Sartorio nell'arco di un decennio, videro la luce su L'Eroica tra il 1913 e il '14.  Cozzani ne segnalò la particolarità tecnica, trattandosi di incisioni su zinco anziché su legno, col metodo dell'incisione in rilievo ad effetto xilografico. Di grande effetto il risultato grafico e pittorico complessivo, degno testimone della maturità artistica del Sartorio. Axs

So in this case despite all my regrets, I must excuse myself." A scarce and rather charming letter from the French composer, critic, scholar and teacher best known for his "L'apprenti sorcier "(The Sorcerer's Apprentice) and his opera "Ariane et Barbe-bleue."Bartok's 1922 visit to Paris was part of a larger concert tour of Britain, France, and Germany, ending with the premieres of Bluebeard's Castle and The Wooden Prince on 13 May in Frankfurt. In Paris, he met important French composers including Francis Poulenc and Erik Satie. The Saturday soirée to which Dukas refers would have taken place just after an occasion recalled by Poulenc: "I remember a strange lunch, on [Saturday] 8 April 1922, where Bartok and Satie met at my house for the first and last time. Like two birds who do not sing the same tune, Bartok and Satie observed each other with suspicion and maintained an overwhelming silence that Auric and I tried in vain to break. For me it is an extraordinary and symbolic memory." (Quoted in Entrancing Muse: A Documented Biography of Francis Poulenc, p. 113.)Henri Prunières (1861-1942) was a French musicologist, and international propagandist of contemporary art in various forms: music, dance, painting etc. He occupies, especially in music, an important place in the art world between the wars. His major contribution was La Revue musicale, a monthly musical periodical which he founded in 1920 and left in 1939.

        Die Blume Anna. Die neue Anna Blume. Eine Gedichtsammlung aus den Jahren 1918-1922. Einbecker Politurausgabe.

      Berlin; Verlag der Sturm, [1922/1923]. 22,5x15,5 cm. First ediiton. 32 pp. Original printed wrappers. Housed in chemise and a grey card slipcase with a maroon leather-label on spine. Spine and margins of wrappers are slightly faded. There is a slight nick at the top corner on pp. 29-32 and on rear wrapper. Contents are a bit toned, as should be expected. A fine copy. With a laid-in gift card, stating that Gerard and Peggy Bonnier received the book as a Christmas present in 1976. Schwitters (1887-1948), German artist and writer, closely connected to the Dada movement, never as a member but closely linked to some of its members. He termed his personal form of Dada, Merz, and published his first book, the Anna Blume. Dichtungen, in 1919. The book was an immediate success but did also arouse public aversion. He continued using the name Anna Blume in poems and collages, and its meaning has been much discussed, though never settled. The present book is a mix of typographical poems, sound poetry, dialogues, cut-up technique, a few short prose texts and a picture-poem (Gesetztes Bildgedicht) in which capital vowels and consonants are arranged within squares. Schwitters's pioneering and experimental approach to different art forms has had a significant influence on 20th century literature and art. Wilpert/Gühring 5.

        Krippenspiel in Xhosa. Wartburg/Südafrika, 1921/1922.

      1922. 30 SS. auf 40 Bll. Handschrift auf Deutsch, Englisch und Xhosa. Rote und schwarze Tinte auf liniertem Papier. Halblederband der Zeit. Kl.-Folio. Die vorliegende Sammelhandschrift eines südafrikanischen Missionars vereint das auf Deutsch geführte Ausgabenbuch der Missionsstation Wartburg (8 SS.; Beginn) und eine sprachwissenschaftliche Abhandlung "The Music of the Xosa (Bantu) Languages" (14 SS.; Schluß) mit einem volkssprachlichen Krippenspiel, betitelt "Umbdlalo wabatwana we-Xmas" (6 SS.). Der Text wird eingeleitet vom Verzeichnis der beim Wartburger Weihnachtsfest 1921 zu lesenden Bibelstellen und zu singenden Kirchenlieder; es folgt das zwei Szenen umfassende Krippenspiel mit den Rollen "Ruben", "Jonathan", "Natau", "Masitandaze", "Mariya" und "Joseph". - So frühe Literaturzeugnisse in afrikanischen Sprachen gelten aufgrund der vorherrschenden oralen Tradition als Seltenheiten und setzen bedingt durch die Missionierung überhaupt erst mit dem 19. Jahrhundert ein. Diese Handschrift ist nach Beurteilung von Dr. Wolfgang Zimmer (Institut für Germanistik an der Univ. des Saarlands und Goethe-Institut Yaoundé, Forschungsschwerpunkt afrikanisches Theater) als frühestes bekanntes Theaterstück in einer afrikanischen Sprache anzusehen. - Rücken lädiert; Deckel etwas gelockert, sonst gut erhalten.
