        Modes et manières d'aujourd'hui. 1922 (dixième année) Fernand Siméon

      Corrard Pierre 1922 - UN ÉTAT PARFAIT. UNE PROVENANCE EXCEPTIONNELLE. UN EXEMPLAIRE SANS ÉQUIVALENT. ABSOLUTELY PERFECT CONDITION. AN EXCEPTIONAL ORIGIN. AN UNPRECEDENTED COPY. Magnifique exemplaire de cette septième et dernière chemise de la collection "Modes et manières d'aujourd'hui", la publication du meilleur de la mode du début du XXe siècle, par les artistes l'ayant faite, au plus haut de leur art. Le projet est porté par Pierre Corrard, écrivain et éditeur de grand talent. Afin d'accompagner la révolution artistique et vestimentaire des années folles, il publie, en 1912, une première chemise, avec des illustrations de Georges Lepape. Devant l'accueil fait à cette première publication, il décide, chaque année, de proposer une chemise identique, avec des auteurs et des artistes différents. Après six volumes (un volume en 1912, un en 1913, un en 1914, un volume de guerre, couvrant les années 1914 à 1919, un volume en 1919 et un en 1920), il faut attendre 1922 pour que le septième et dernier volume soit publié. Sur un texte de Paul Valéry, Fernand Siméon propose, en 12 planches, sa vision de la mode de l'époque, en ocre jaune, bistre et noir. Cette chemise se présente comme toutes les autres de la série : sous un cartonnage fort, dont le premier plat est frappé des seuls titres et années, avec, en son centre, une illustration couleurs, les planches prennent place dans un ensemble de quatre rabats fait du même papier que celui illustrant la contre garde, et dont le motif a été dessiné par l'artiste réalisant les planches intérieures. L'ouvrage, en feuilles, débute par une page de titre reprenant l'illustration de couverture. Puis viennent les pages proposant le texte, et, après le colophon, les planches illustrées. La provenance de notre exemplaire est exceptionnelle: il provient directement de la famille Corrard. Stocké dans leur résidence, notre exemplaire est dans un état strictement parfait, tel que sorti de chez l'imprimeur. Il est même encore sous son papier cristal d'origine, intouché. Bien qu'il date de quasiment 100 ans, il est proprement comme neuf. Notre exemplaire est un des 271 exemplaires numérotés sur Vélin à la cuve (sur un tirage total à 300 exemplaires). Nous lui joignons, qui plus est, un bon de commande à l'entête de "Modes et manières d'aujourd'hui", vierge, ainsi qu'une carte à l'entête des "Collections Pierre Corrard", vierge également.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS)

      10 March 1922, Washington, D.C. - A fine one-page letter of @50 words on United States Supreme Court 4-7/8" x 7-3/4" stationery SIGNED by the Justice to Henry W. Winslow responding to and declining a request for a photograph. Holmes was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1902 by President Theodore Roosevelt, a position he held until his retirement in 1932. Holmes became famous for his liberal interpretations of the U.S. Constitution and was known as the "Great Dissenter" because of his disagreement with the views of his colleagues on the Court. His lectures on common law at the Lowell Institute in Boston, collected as THE COMMON LAW (1881), are considered a classic of legal writing. Together with the original envelope with the Supreme Court of the United States printed return address also filled out in Holmes's hand. A few words a bit light, vertical crease from mailing, three small holes well away from any writing. About Fine with envelope, and very frameable [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        THE WORST JOURNEY IN THE WORLD, ANTARCTIC 1910 - 1913

      Constable, London, 1922. First Edition. Hardcover (Original Cloth). Good/No Dust Jacket. 1st Edition, 2 volumes;Rare first edition of this Antarctic classic, which includes the 10 panoramic collotype plates that do not appear in later editions. Vol. I, lxiv, 1-300, [4] appendix, 30 plate leaves, (including frontispiece and 2 folding panoramas), 4 maps (3 folding); Vol. II, viii, 301-585, 28 plates leaves (including coloured frontispiece, 8 folding panoramas), 1 folding map. Original blue cloth with gilt titles variation - A71.A1 Rosove (71.A2). The best written and most enduring account of exploits in the Antarctic. - Taurus. A classic - it has been called "The best polar book ever written." At the age of 24, 'Cherry' was one of the youngest members of Scott's Terra Nova Expedition (1910-1913). This was Scott's second and last expedition to Antarctica. Cherry was initially rejected, but made a second application along with a promise of £1,000 towards the cost of the expedition. Rejected a second time, he made the donation regardless. Struck by this gesture, and at the same time persuaded by Dr. Edward 'Bill' Watson, Scott agreed to take Cherry as assistant biologist. He is acclaimed for his historical account of this expedition... It was perhaps the only real stroke of luck in Scott's ill fated [Terra Nova] expedition that Cherry-Garrard, the one survivor of the winter journey, happened to be able to describe it so effectively that the reader forgets how comfortable he is in his armchair, and remembers the tale with a shiver as if he had been through it himself. - George Bernard Shaw." Cherry-Garrard was warmly commended by Scott for his efficiency and unselfishness as a sledger and tent-mate. In the comparative comfort of life at base, he edited the South Polar Times. Wilson chose Bowers and Cherry-Garrard -- 'the pick of the sledging element' (Scott) -- as his companions for a Winter Journey in 1911 to the rookery of the Emperor Penguin at Cape Crozier, an exploit which is still without parallel in the annals of polar exploration. On their return 5 weeks later, Scott described their journey as 'the hardest that has ever been made' -- a phrase which later suggested to Cherry-Garrard the title of his narrative. The book is widely regarded as the most readable of all the Antarctic literature - it has been suggested that the manuscript was heavily edited by George Bernard Shaw, who was a close family friend of the Cherry-Garrards.

        Washinga Sahba's Grave on Blackbird's Hills

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by L. Weber after Bodmer. From the scarce Leipzig edition printed from the original copper-plates. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition. (David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 85, p.18) Bodmer, Prince Maximilian and David Dreidoppel were heading up the Missouri River aboard the steamer Yellow Stone.On 5 May they had left Cabanné's post for the abandoned military post of Fort Atkinson in the vicinity of present day Fort Calhoun, Nebraska. On the morning of 7 May 1833 they passed the spot pictured here by Bodmer: the Blackbird Hills, named after a chief of the Omahas who had insisted on being buried in a mound seated upon a mule. As the boat passed by three Indians look on warily, two keep guard on the bank whilst a third waters his horse. Karl Bodmer's images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. They arrived in Boston in July 1832, traveled on to Philadelphia, where they stayed with Napoleon Bonaparte's elder brother Joseph. From here they headed west across Pennsylvania across the Alleghenies to Pittsburgh and the Ohio country, visiting all the important German settlements en route. Their most important stop on their route west was at the utopian colony of New Harmony in Indiana. The Prince spent five months there in the company of some of the country's leading scientific men, and studying all the relevant literature on backcountry America. On 24 March 1833 the party reached St. Louis, Missouri, and the start of the journey into Indian country. David C. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint /Spring 1985, p.18.

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

      [Vienna, 1922. Folio. (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.

        Original caricature of Sydney Schiff

      [ca. 1922]. "The darkness and the flashing eye," [ca. 1922]. Pencil and watercolor on paper. Caricature of Sydney Schiff, 1868-1944, the novelist who published under the name "Stephen Hudson," translator of Proust's A la recherché des temps perdu, patron of writers and artists including T. S. Eliot and Wyndham Lewis, and best remembered perhaps for hosting the famous dinner in Paris on May 18, 1922 to mark the premiere of Stravinsky's ballet, Le renard, attended by Joyce, Picasso, Stravinsky and Proust. Schiff and his wife, Violet - the sister of Wilde's Sphinx, Ada Leverson - were close friends of Max and Florence Beerbohm, providing the Beerbohms a refuge in England at their country house in Abinger during W.W.II. Inscribed with title and "Dearest Sydney Very many thanks. I shall treasure the document - the intensely interesting prophecy, based on so much knowledge of things and said with such keen vision. May you be right! Reading you, I feel that you might be. And then dismal doubts creep in. 'The mills of God,' you say. They do certainly grind slowly. But I don't think the History of the World shows them to be efficient in the long run. If they were, our world wouldn't be what it is! Your ever affectionate Max." Unrecorded in Hart-Davis's catalogue of Beerbohm's caricatures. 25.4 x 20.4 cm. Nicely framed. In fine condition. ORIG/011216.

        Eigenh. Karte mit U.

      Hamburg 24 IV (Poststempel) 1922 - Kl.-8°. 2/3 Seite. Mit Adresse. An den Politiker und Autor Fritz Wolffheim (1888-1942). ? Beklagt zeitliche Anspannung und fährt fort: »Mit der Regierung habe ich gekämpft für die Jugendlichen, Aussprache mit Rathenau gehabt. Mitleidiges Bedauern das [sic!] ich nicht mehr Künstler sei u. s. w. [.] Die Ziele des neuen Bundes retten wir [.] in unserer kleinen Schule.

Vogeler und Wolffheim waren beide zeitweise Mitglied der »Kommunistischen Arbeiterpartei Deutschlands« (KAPD), die sich 1920 aus dem linken Flügel der »Kommunistischen Partei Deutschlands« (KPD) gegründet hatte.

        The Novels.

      London: J. M. Dent and Sons Ltd,, 1922. With illustrations by Charles E. Brock. 6 volumes, octavo (184 x 124 mm). Finely bound by Ramage in contemporary red half calf, twin green morocco labels, raised bands and compartments tooled in gilt, red cloth sides ruled in gilt, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Colour frontispiece to each volume, 90 similar plates in all. Contemporary bookseller's ticket to each front pastedown. Faint staining to fore and bottom edges of boards, spotting to fore and bottom edges of text block. An excellent set. A most attractively bound set of the charmingly illustrated novels, first published with Brock's illustrations between 1907 and 1909. C. E. Brock (1870?-1938) first appeared as an illustrator of Jane Austen for Macmillan's 1895?-7 series, though he illustrated only Pride and Prejudice, with Hugh Thomson illustrating the other five titles. That series appeared in black and white, which better suited Thomson's skilful use of line. A decade later J. M. Dent, realising Brock's potential as a colourist, commissioned him to redo the Pride and Prejudice suite in colour, and also to create colour illustrations for the other five Austen titles. The colourful costumes and interior decor depicted here are reputedly accurate to the Regency period, as Charles Brock and his brother Henry collected antique furniture and clothing so that their friends and relations could model for the artists in their Cambridge studio.

        [The Everest Trilogy:] Mount Everest: The Reconnaissance, 1921; The Assault on Mount Everest 1922; The Fight for Everest: 1924

      New York: Longmans, Green and Co.,, 1922-25. 3 works, octavo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettered spines and front covers. 2 photogravure frontitpieces, one colour frontispiece, numerous monochrome plates from photographs, 7 folding maps. Embossed library numbers at foot of spines (labels neatly removed from pastedowns), spines a little rolled, a touch of foxing in places, one map torn at stub otherwise a very good set with the gilt lettering bright and the inner joints intact. First US editions, first printings (published in the same year as the first UK editions), of these comprehensive and important first-hand accounts of the first attempts to climb Everest. Howard-Bury "led a diverse expedition of surveyors, climbers, and military officers, which achieved the goals of surveying Everest and finding a route to the summit for later climbers" (ODNB); C. G. Bruce "was too old to take part in the climbing, but his knowledge of Himalayan languages and military organization, his cheerfulness and joviality, and the Gurkhas he brought to organize the porters all contributed to the expedition's success. Captain John Geoffrey Bruce (1896-1972), a Gurkha officer and Bruce's cousin, and George Ingle Finch, a chemist, supported by Lance-Naik Tejbir Bura, a Gurkha NCO, reached a record elevation of 27,300 feet (8,310 metres) using oxygen" (ODNB); E. F. Norton "took charge of the difficult third Everest expedition [when Bruce fell ill]. After many crushing setbacks, and hazards owing to blizzards and ferocious winds, Norton led the first serious summit attempt. Again he climbed without oxygen, an aid for which he had little respect. At 28,000 feet his companion, Somervell, was stopped by severe throat trouble and Norton continued alone to a height of 28,126 feet. He reached the great couloir on the north face, which later became popularly known as Norton's couloir. This, too, was an altitude record, and it was fifty-four years before anyone climbed higher without oxygen. Another summit bid was undertaken a few days later by Mallory and Andrew Comyn Irvine, from which neither man returned. Norton handled this tragedy and the publicity it engendered with impeccable dignity, and his dispatches from Mount Everest after the loss are among the most lucid and moving examples of mountain writing. He also wrote the greater part of the official expedition book, The Fight for Everest, 1924" (ODNB)

Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen.

        Das Hündchen der Marquise. Mit galanten Radierungen von Maler Scheibenberger [d.i. |Otto Schoff|].

      Ohne weitere Angaben [d.i. Berlin, Gurlitt, 1922]. - Gr.8°. 67 S., 2 Bll. mit insgesamt |19 eindeutig erotischen Orig.-Radierungen von Otto Schoff|, davon 12 im Text und 7 ganzseitig. Orig.-HMaroquin mit goldgepr. RTitel. Kopfgoldschnitt. Klandestiner Druck des Gurlitt Verlags. Dieses Werk erschien offiziell als vierte Reihe der 'Neuen Bilderbücher' mit demselben Titel aber 19 Radierungen von Paul Scheurich in einer Auflage von 300 Exemplaren. Bei dem vorliegenden Exemplar wurde der Text übernommen, die Seitenzahl ist identisch, doch die jetzt explizit erotischen Radierungen stammen nun von Otto Schoff. Im radierten Titelblatt nimmt er das Pseudonym 'Maler Scheibenberger' an. Der eindeutigen Erotik der Radierungen ist es nun geschuldet, dass es keinen Hinweis mehr auf den Verlag gibt. Auch ein Impressum gibt es nicht mehr. Diese 'scharfe' Fassung kann nur in ganz wenigen Exemplaren erschienen sein, denn sie taucht so gut wie nie auf. Gedruckt ist sie auf Bütten. Einband leicht berieben. Gutes Exemplar dieses ausserordentlich raren Drucks mit ungewöhnlich reizvollen (hier wortwörtlich zu nehmen) Radierungen von Schoff. Bibliographisch nur bei Englisch, Irrgarten, S. 266. ------------------------------ Schoff. Gautier, Theophile. Das Hündchen der Marquise [Le petit chien de la marquise].

Sans lieu, ni date, ni éditeur [i.e. Berlin, Gurlitt, 1922]. Grand in-8. 67 pages, 2 feuilles, 19 eaux-fortes très libres, dont 12 in-texte et 7 sur pleine page. Demi-maroquin de l'éditeur, titre en lettres dorées, tête dorée. Impression clandestine de la maison Gurlitt. Officiellement, l'oeuvre fut publiée comme 4ème titre des « Neuen Bilderbücher » [nouveaux livres d'images], portant le même titre, mais illustrée avec 19 eaux-fortes par l'artiste Paul Scheurich, tirées à 300 exemplaires. Dans notre exemplaire, on reprenait le texte avec la pagination même, mais les illustration furent échangées avec celles de Otto Schoff, cette fois clairement érotiques. Dans la page de titre gravée il prend le pseudonyme « peintre Scheibenberger ». C'est à cause des ces images très libres qu'on ne trouve plus d'informations sur l'éditeur. Le colophon est également absent. Cette version friponne fut imprimée qu'en petit nombre et elle est quasiment introuvable sur le marché. Imprimée sur papier à la forme. Reliure légèrement frottée.
