        Autograph Letter to Prunieres, Lamenting a Missed Meeting with Bartok

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Neatly penned autograph letter, one page, 5 x 6.5, no date but postmarked April 6, 1922. Addressed on the reverse in Dukas's own hand to Henri Prunières and signed "Paul Dukas." The letter apologizes for missing a visit from the addressee and from "Monsieur Béla Bartok, whose acquaintance I would have been delighted to make. All the more so since I must respond to your kind invitation for Saturday. I have to be in Valenciennes on Sunday to help with the concert of the Societé du Conservatoire there. And if I don't take the train at 5:10 in the evening on Saturday, I will have to get up at 6:30 to leave on Sunday morning! 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."<br style="">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.)<br style="">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.<br style="">

Traduction francaise précédée d'une étude sur les sources des hippiatres arabes [...] Avec 23 photographies et 11 dessins. Par Louis Mercier, Consul de France. Paris, Librairie Orientaliste Paul Geuthner, 1922-1924.

      1922. Large 8vo. (2), IV, 98, (6) pp. (4), XV, (1), 502, (2) pp. With 23 photo illustrations and 11 drawings (some in colour) on plates. Original printed wrappers (rebacked) and original illustrated coloured wrappers, both bound within uniform modern half calf. First printed edition of the "Hilyat al-fursân wa-shi'âr ash-shuj'ân", an abridgement of Ibn Hudhail's horse treatise, prepared around 1400. In facsimile throughout. Includes the first French edition of the same. "Ibn Hudhail flourished at Granada under the reign of Muhammad V (king from 1350 to 1362) who ordered him to write a treatise on jihâd [...] The treatise contains two parts of which the first deals with the military art and the second, with hippiatry. Now, some time later, under the rule of Muhammad VI, King of Granada from 1392 to c. 1408, a second treatise was composed which was largely an abbreviated copy of the second part of the first one [... Mercier's] French translation [of this treatise] is a very valuable contribution to our knowledge of Muslim civilization [...] The editor has apparently made deep study of many other Arabic treatises of the same kind, from the earliest ones down to very modern ones [...] This enables him to add much information of Muslim origin in the footnotes and appendixes, and this to give the reader some knowledge of the hippiatric literature available in Arabic [...] The sixth and last appendix is probably the most interesting, being a historical sketch of Muslim hippiatry throughout the ages. This is followed by an abundant bibliography, which forms a very valuable supplement to the enormous hippiatric bibliography recently published by General Mennessier de la Lance: it is not restricted to European publications but contains as well a long list of Arabic works [...] Mr. Mercier's studies are of special interest to students of the Arabic language and of Muslim culture. To show their cultural importance it will suffice to recall that the horse is almost a sacred animal in Islam. The Prophet clearly expressed the divine will with regard to this [...] Historians of science must know of these studies" (George Sarton, in: Isis, Vol. 8, No. 2 [May 1926], p. 346-349). - Finely bound, untrimmed copy, very clean throughout.

Coperta cartonata editoriale, con rivestimento di tipo bodoniano e titoli e illustrazione al piatto anteriore. Con 219 bellissime incisioni in nero, praticamente ad ogni pagina, con tavole illustrative del testo, testatine, capilettera, cartigli e finalini. Esemplare in barbe. Tiratura limitata di 1333 esemplari numerati. Esemplare n°864. Stampa nell'Officina Fratelli Magnani di Pescia. Esemplare firmato dall'Autore e dall'editore (Ettore Cozzani) e dall'Autore. Applicata fotocopia della lettera di presentazione del volume da parte del Cozzani. Nastro segnapagina in stoffa. Splendido e raro. Unanimemente considerata l'Opera principale di Giulio Aristide Sartorio (Roma, 1860-1932), "Sibilla" si rifà alla leggenda medioevale di Lionello e Sibilla: lui Cavaliere di Santa Romana Chiesa, lei maga incantatrice, abitante degli inferi. Il riferimento mitologico costituisce altresì l'intreccio della storia di Guerin Meschino e della Maga Alcina e, nella tradizione germanica, la storia di Tannhauser e Venere, che fornì ispirazione a Wagner ed al Beardsley in "Under the Hill". 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. In questa sede il 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 impatto il risultato grafico e pittorico complessivo, degno testimone della maturità artistica del Sartorio. Dopo la stampa tutte le lastre vennero distrutte. > Servolini, 735-736.

        The Mark - ISSUES 1-12 Ccomplete Set Bound and Signed By John Hargrave

      Kibbo Kift, Wealdstone 1922 - Kibbo Kift The organisation was founded by the charismatic Englishman John Hargrave (aka 'White Fox'), artist, author and Boy Scout Commissioner for Woodcraft and Camping, who had become disenchanted with the increasingly militaristic tendency in the Scout movement after World War I. Hargrave was promptly expelled from the Scouts by Scout founder Robert Baden-Powell. With a small group of like-minded, dissident, anti-war Scoutmasters and Scoutmistresses under his own direct leadership, he set about building an alternative and very different movement. Baden-Powell expelled Hargrave with extreme reluctance, and only after some wealthy backers had threatened to withdraw funding from the Scouts unless he was expelled. The Kibbo Kift (archaic Kentish dialect for 'proof of great strength'[2]) has been described as 'the only genuine English national movement of modern times' and was certainly very different from Baden-Powell's Boy Scouts. Based on the woodcraft principles of naturalist Ernest Thompson Seton that had been a key part of the early Scout programme, the Kibbo Kift was to be not merely a youth organisation but was to involve all ages and, very daring for the times, it was open to both sexes. The ideas of world peace and the regeneration of urban man through the open-air life replaced the nationalism and militarism Hargrave had detested in the post-World War I Scouts. Kinsmen and women were organised in Clans, Tribes and Lodges. Each individual took a 'woodcraft name', inspired by their ideas of 'Indian-style' names. The correct costume had to be hand-made by each individual or 'rooftree' (family group) and while the everyday 'habit' of Saxon hood, jerkin, shorts and long cloak must have seemed outlandish enough in the English countryside of the early 1920s; for ceremonial occasions, brilliantly coloured surcoats or silk-embroidered robes were worn by the various office-holders such as the Tallykeeper, Campswarden, Ritesmaster and Gleeman. Hargrave himself was 'Head Man' and his leadership was dynamic, inspirational and frankly autocratic. The Mark of the Kindred of the Kibbo Kift is typical of the symbolism that can be seen in many of their designs. Its meaning is: Worship (The K sign) Forever (the Circle of Unity and Eternity) Life (the Flame) through Knowledge (the Tree). Or again, &#145;Worship Life Forever with Knowledge&#146;. The Kibbo Kift's central activities of hiking and camping were refined and elevated to the level of a spiritual exercise. The weekend 'Tribal' Camps and the great annual 'Althing' were marked by colourful and impressive ritual, inspired by their ideas of what Native American ceremonies might be like, but couched in language reminiscent of the Norse Sagas and rich in Saxon archaisms. Kinsmen were not only required to make their own lightweight, one-man hiking tents (the first seen in England) but to decorate them with vivid, symbolic designs of their own devising. Influenced by Hargrave's own artistic taste, an ultra-modern 'futurist' style of design became general, and the robes, regalia, tents and other items of decorative art, often of an extremely high standard, represent an extraordinary 'democratisation' of the avant-garde art of the day. The Kibbo Kift were never more than a few hundred strong. Kinsmen and Kinswomen included the Suffragettes Emmeline Pethick Lawrence, Mary Neal and May Billinghurst, the journalist Henry Nevinson, the photographer Angus McBean, and Ruth Clark. The Advisory Committee included Havelock Ellis, Maurice Maeterlinck, the Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore, H. G. Wells and Professor Julian Huxley. D. H. Lawrence took an interest in the Kindred and it has been suggested that Mellors in Lady Chatterley's Lover is based on an archetypal Kinsman. The growth of the Kibbo Kift was not without its setbacks. In 1924, the South London co-operative lodges challenged Hargrave's leadership, and seceded from the movement. They established their own organisation, The Woodcraft Folk, which [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Das Werk entstand auf Anregung des Komponisten Siegfried Kallenberg, der die Musik dazu schrieb. Nach der szenischen Uraufführung hielt der Text Horváths Kritik jedoch nicht mehr stand. Er kaufte 1926 die Restauflage teils aus Buchhandlungen auf und vernichtete sie. "Er entfernt Exemplare des Buches aus öffentlichen Bibliotheken und wendet sich persönlich an ihm bekannte Besitzer des Buches, um dessen Rückgabe zu erwirken. Mit allen zur Verfügung stehenden Mitteln suchte er jede Erinnerung an diesen seinen ersten Versuch auszumerzen. Mit Erfolg. Jahrzehnelang bleibt Horváths erstes Buch verschollen" (Krischke: Horváth. Kind seiner Zeit, S. 37). Die nächste Buchveröffentlichung eines Werkes von Horváth erfolgt dann erst 1930. Der unbedruckte, weiße Karton des Einbands wurde vom Verlag in ein sehr empfindliches gelblichgrünes handgemachtes Schmuckpapier eingeschlagen, das von den Vorsatzpapieren gehalten wird, bei unserem Exempar jedoch am Rücken vollständig eingerissen ist. Der darunterliegende Karton hat am Rücken oben und unten jeweils eine Fehlstelle. Außerdem fehlt das ursprünglich vorhandene montierte bedruckte Titelschildchen auf dem Vorderumschlag (das als Fotokopie des Exemplars aus dem Deutschen Literaturarchiv in Originalgröße beiliegt). Trotz dieser Mängel handelt es sich um ein noch akzeptables, innen durchweg gutes Exemplar des seltenen Erstlings. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

      Shanghai Watson 1922 - Third edition. Folio, [viii], 40, [ii]pp., 66 photographed plates, original blue silk boards gilt, bevelled edges, spine faded, a very good example. The aesthetic photographer, Donald Mennie (1809-1941) was active in Shanghai and Peking from 1920 until the late 30's.

      1922. 1 p. (42 lines). 8vo. Mounted on cardboard. A working manuscript, comprising three 14-line stanzas, written in dark brown ink, with autograph title ("Die Bürger, die Künstler und der Narr"), containing a number of deletions, corrections and revisions. "Unter einem Künstler verstehen sie einen, / der sich nicht abgibt mit solchen Schweinen / und nichts zu tun hat mit allen den Dingen, / die ihnen im Handumdrehn gelingen, / um sich dafür mit Schaffen und Schreiben / und hauptsächlich ihnen die Zeit zu vertreiben; / und da er doch von Beruf ein Träumer / und deshalb auch Schuldterminversäumer, / der das tut, wozu er nicht ist verpflichtet, / und das andere lieber läßt unverrichtet, / so kann er zwar leichter als sie sich entflammen, / sonst aber geht es ihm gar nicht zusammen. / Und teilten die Bürger nicht besser sichs ein, / ja dann könnten sie auch solche Künstler sein!

        Die buddhistische Spätantike in Mittelasien. Ergebnisse der Kgl. Preussischen Turfan-Expeditionen. Berlin, Dietrich Reimer, 1922-1933 [facsimile: Graz, Akademische Druck- und Verlagsanstalt, 1973-1975].

      1922. 6 text volumes and 1 atlas. 35,5 x 26 cm; atlas 54 x 36,5 cm. 29; 62; 53; 29; 32; 89; 80 pp. With a total of 185 plates in the text volumes, 22 plates in the atlas volume, mostly in black and white, some in colour, and numerous illustrations in text. Uniform decorated brown cloth. Reprint of a work on archeology in China, published in the years 1922-1933, written by the German orientalist and archaeologist Albert von Le Coq (1860-1930). From 1902 to 1914, Le Coq led three of the four German expeditions to the Turfan (or Turpan) area, in Xingjian, China. The expeditions were initiated by the German archaeologist Albert Grünwedel. "The principal spoils of these expeditions were literary. Vast numbers of Chinese manuscripts were obtained from every center, both secular and religious. ... Besides securing manuscripts, these expeditions examined caves decorated with stucco figures and with frescoes..." (Couling). The text gives a brief history of the expeditions, the different sites they excavated, including grottoes and temples, which are also shown on some of the smaller illustrations, followed by descriptions of the objects shown on the plates. "The civilization thus revealed is a mixture of Persian, Indian, Chinese, Hellenic etc." (Couling). Both Grünwedel and Le Coq went back to Berlin with thousands of artefacts, of which many are shown in the plates. The second volume, titled Die Manichaeischen Miniaturen, deals with fragments of illuminated manuscripts, the other volumes deal mainly with either sculpture, mural paintings or frescoes and their techniques. The fourth expedition ended early due to the outbreak of the First World War, but compared to the earlier expeditions they collected the most artefacts during this short stay. - All volumes in very good condition. Cf. Couling, pp. 32, 578.

Picabia demande à Cocteau des nouvelles du Congrès de Paris, convoqué par Breton en mars 1922, et qui marque la fin du Dadaïsme et le début de l'avènement du Surréalisme.

        PLUS ÇA CHANGE. Féérie en deux actes et six tableaux représentée pour la première fois à Paris le 7 septembre 1915 au théâtre Michel. Reprise au même théâtre en octobre 1918 et en octobre 1919. Illustrations de Zyg Brunner.

      Editions Lucien Vogel, Paris, 1922. 1 volume in-4 carré (24,5 x 19 cm) de (3)-183-(1) pages. 8 hors-texte coloriés au pochoir et 30 compositions en noir au trait dans le texte (bandeau, lettrines, culs-de-lampe, vignettes), couverture illustrée en couleur. Reliure demi-chagrin marron à coins, tête dorée, non rogné, relié sur brochure, couvertures et dos du brochage conservés en parfait état (reliure de l'époque signée DUNAULT). Quelques frottements et légères salissures à la reliure, intérieur parfait. ÉDITION ORIGINALE. EXEMPLAIRE DE DÉDICACE A M. METZGER. Cet ouvrage a été achevé d'imprimer le 15 juin 1922 sur les presses de l'imprimerie du commerce à Angers. Il a été tiré sur papier à la forme (vergé) des papeteries Zuber à 1.000 exemplaires numérotés. Tous les exemplaires sont sur ce papier. Cette pièce de théâtre loufoque est interprétée entre autres par Raimu dans le rôle de Jolibois. Les décors ainsi que les costumes furent exécutés par Paul Poiret, en 1918. On doit cette édition au fondateur de la Gazette du Bon Ton (Lucien Vogel). Ouvrage dont les illustrations typiques Art Déco dues au talent de l'imagier d'origine polonaise Zyg Brunner, reprennent la flamboyance des costumes de Paul Poiret. On se ballade à travers les époques en différents tableaux, égyptiens, grecs, siècle de Louis XIV, temps modernes, etc. C'est la pièce avec laquelle Raimu, de son vrai nom Jules Auguste Muraire, fait ses débuts au théâtre, à l'âge de 32 ans. C'est Andrée Spinelly, vedette de l'époque avec laquelle il entretient une liaison, qui le fait jouer sur scène à ses côtés dans Plus ça change au théâtre Michel en 1915. TRÈS BON EXEMPLAIRE DE CE LIVRE A L'ILLUSTRATION EMBLÉMATIQUE DE SON EPOQUE.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Salzburg, o. D., Freitag 26. (Mai 1922).

      1922. 2½ SS. Mit gedr. Briefkopf (Monogramm) sowie zwei ovalen Stempeln (Jakob Schwarz). 8vo. An den deutschen Schriftsteller und Autographensammler Eugen Wolbe über den Erwerb eines Manuskripts des großen italienischen Dichters Giacomo Leopardi: "Verehrter Herr Studienrat, vielen Dank für Ihre Freundlichkeit die mir diesmal besonders wertvoll ist. Denn ich möchte den Leopardi um jeden Preis haben. In der Auction wird er wahrscheinlich (da ihn Fränkel nicht beschrieben hat) hoffentlich nur auf etwa 1500-2000 Mark gehen. Ich möchte Sie aber bitten, mir ihn auf jeden Fall zu erwerben, im Notfall bis 12.000 (Zwölftausend) Mark zu gehen [...] Mir liegt an diesem Leopardi, weil ich L. sehr liebe und gerade Verse selten sind; vor dem Krieg habe ich einmal einen, der 100 Lire kosten sollte (einen herrlichen!) um einen Tag versäumt. Sie wissen nun wohl aus eigener Erfahrung, dass man wenn einem einmal ein Stück entgangen, mit besonderer Leidenschaft dann ein ähnliches erwerben will. Ich hoffe mich dann bei Ihnen für Ihre Mühe revancieren zu können, auch ein Rolland ist Ihnen gewiss: nur aus meiner eigenen Correspondenz will ich nichts nehmen , weil ich da ein kostbares Ganzes nicht zerstören mag: nur ihn bitten kann ich jetzt nicht, weil er mir eben schreibt, er sei vom Schreiben sosehr übermüdet. Aber es kommt schon eine Gelegenheit [...] Hoffentlich glückt es, das Stück billig zu erwerben (denn das Höchstlimit ist ja nur für den undenkbaren Fall, dass gerade aus Italien ein Leopardinarr so viel bieten würde, ich hoffe mit 1500 Mark davonzukommen und das Geld für die Henrici Auction zu sparen, deren Katalog ich noch nicht habe, die ich aber vielleicht persönlich besuche, wenn besondere Stücke für mich dabei sind) [...]". - Bei dem am 29. Mai 1922 bei der Auktion 22 des Antiquariats S. Martin Fraenkel, Berlin, durch Wolbe für Zweig erworbenen eigenhändigen Manuskript Leopardis handelt es sich um das heute in der British Library, London (Slg. Zweig MS. 167) verwahrte Gedicht "XXXVIII. Del greco di Simonide". Vgl. Matuschek, Zauber der Schrift, S. 268, Nr. 453.

Yes. Blanco? No: Melville is touring it. Misalliance was played originally in 3 acts, or rather with two descents of the curtain, one just before the aeroplane alarm, and the other ('just before' crossed out) where Lina led off Tarleton to exercise him. The difficulty about Misalliance is the casting of Tharleton: a Falstaffian part'. Covers spotted. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Wilson and others." Both volumes bound in the same manner as the Constable first printing, i.e. blue-grey papered boards with paper-labeled linen spines.

Light discoloration to edges of boards, with some edge-rubbing. Frontispiece tissue guard present in both volumes. Bottom edge of text block of volume II scored, but with no significant affect to contents. Binding tight and no internal markings of former owner. Pages bright and unmarked. Similar collation to the Constable printing, but without the ten panoramas. All plates and maps are present and placed as stipulated. Rosove 71.C1, not in Spence. .
