        Pachtüwa-Chtä. An Arrikkara Warrior

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922. 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.1 A fine powerful portrait of a proud successful warrior. Bodmer and Prince Maximilian were introduced to this member of the Arikara tribe by Mató-Tópe ( a Mandan chief) in March 1834 whilst they overwintered at Fort Clark. Pachtüwa-Chtä had been a member of a war party that had attacked and killed three traders near the Heart River in 1830. He stands, armed with a gunstock club with a painted metal blade, his head adorned with symbols of his prowess in battle. Although there were many reports of the Arikara (or Arikaree), their hostility towards the whites ensured that they were only rarely encountered by either Bodmer or Maximilian. In return for posing for his portrait Pachtüwa-Chtä asked for a picture of a bear against a forested background which he was probably going to employ as part of his personal medicine as an aid in either hunting or battle. 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. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. `David C.

        DIE ENTDECKUNG KARLSBADS. EINE SATIRE.

      Privately Printed, 1922 First Edition. Hardback. No Dustjacket. - 4to. pp 63. Copiously illustrated in colour throughout. German text, prose and verse, appears humorous or satirical. By the Czech artist Egon Adler (1892-1963) who died in USA. - 32 caricatures of Karlsbad society. Original publisher's marbled boards over beige cloth lettered gilt at the spine -- very slight fraying at spine ends o/w clean VG. No 36 of 50 copies this with the plates hand-coloured. The name of the recipient tipped in at the colophon (Walter Quittner) with a short handwritten sentiment initialled E.A. A German auction catalogue had this to say of their (worn) copy:- Erste und einzige Ausgabe, ungemein selten! - Num. Exemplar der Vorzugsausgabe, breitrandiger Druck auf chamoisfarb. Papier. - Bibliographisch nicht ermittelte Buchveröffentlichung des tschechischen Künstlers Egon Adler, geb. 1892 in Karlsbad, gest. 1963 in den USA; lediglich die Deutsche Nationalbibliothek erwähnt diese Publikation für Leipzig. Das vorliegende Werk erschien anonym, nur mit den Initialen des Autors auf dem Titel, als Privatdruck ohne Verlagsangabe. Es enthält 32 karikaturistisch anmutende Zeichnungen Adlers, mit tlw. parodistischen, erläuternden Texten; sie illustrieren die Karlsbader Gesellschaft der 20er Jahre. - Im Vorwort schreibt er: "Ursprünglich stellte 'Das entdeckte Karlsbad' einen stattlichen Band philosophischer Abhandlungen dar, die gewiß geeignet wären, dem Autor einen künftigen Bürgermeisterposten zu sichern. Es muß aber von der Veröffentlichung des umfangreichen Werkes Abstand genommen werden, weil man seiner Bewohnerschaft, welche ohnedies merklich zur Schlafkrankheit inkliniert, schonend entgegenkommen soll. Und so geschahs, daß das leibliche Ausmaß dieses Buches auf das geistige der Bewohnerschar reduziert wurde, womit beiden Teilen geholfen ist: Ich muß nicht Bürgermeister werden und dem Leser bleibt die Mühe erspart, tausend unbequeme Sätze überblättern zu müssen, um endlich auf jene Bilder zu stoßen, die meiner einzigartigen Sammlung entnommen sind. E.A."Der expressionistische Künstler stellte 1912 u. a. mit Gauguin im Sturm aus, Else Lasker-Schüler setzte ihm mit ihrem kl. Essay im Pan (Nr. 17 vom 24. Januar 1913, S. 412ff.) ein schönes Denkmal: " . Er ist so ganz Eigen, ganz Sich, und sein Herz in einem Rahmen. Aber in seinem Herzen liegt sein jungverstorbener Bruder begraben, und innige Gestalt schafft des Malers Hand, wenn der Engel seiner Erinnerung aufersteht. Zwischen den Farben liegt er dann plötzlich - Stern zwischen Zinnober und Marin auf der Palette für die großen Pinsel. Alle Bilder Egon Adlers sind Spiele, sind süß, haben großgeöffnete Augen, sind ganz Gottes Vaterhand und rufen . ". [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Tracked by Wireless

      Stanley Paul and Co. London (1922) - First English Edition, Advance Review Copy in original illustrated wrappers. E. Welch Ridout cover art. Extremely rare Hubin listed mystery title to be found in original advance state wrappers, with remnants of 7/6 price sticker at spine, a price reserved for hardcover editions published by Stanley Paul. Interesting copyright statement "Copyright in the United States of America by The Macaulay Company, New York, 1922." The first American Edition is believed to be published by Moffat, Yard and Co. and not Macaulay who apparently owned the rights. The jacket press from that Moffat edition states the following about his title: "Here is the first book of fiction that embraces one of sciences greatest achievements. Falconer is called upon by Scotland Yard to aid in the detection of a group of criminals who have turned the uses of radio into lawless channels. Acknowledged as the greatest radio expert of his day, Falconer traps them in his own radio net and brings them to belated justice. Truly the guilty secrets of many men and women have been detected by means of wireless, that science which daily reveals its further wonders to those persevering experimenters who seek so patiently to penetrate its mysteries." Very Good plus, some modest shelf wear, minor loss at spine ends, few pages lightly bumped at fore-edge. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Winter Village of the Minatarres

      Schmidt and Guenther, [Leipzig 1922 - 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) A highly atmospheric scene executed by Bodmer during the winter of 1833-1834 when the travellers stayed at Fort Clark on the banks of the upper reaches of Missouri River. In November 1833 Prince Maximilian and Bodmer made a nine-hour trek from the Fort to one of the Hidatsa winter villages (probably Eláh-sa) and stayed for a couple of days. Composed of about eighty households closely packed amidst the sheltering timber the village was the largest of the Hidatsa settlements on the Knife River. Here a number of figures are gathered in the foreground, wrapped in their buffalo robes to watch a pair of young men keep warm by playing the hoop and pole game that was one of the most common and widespread of all North American Indian games. 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.

        Babbitt

      Harcourt, Brace, New York 1922 - First Printing (no further printings noted), Second Issue, with 'Lyte' for 'Purdy' and 'any' for 'my' p. 49 (only 9500 copies of the first issue were printed before those two corrections were made). Thick 8vo: [6],401,[7]pp. Publisher's royal blue cloth, upper cover and spine lettered in blue (negative of orange title blocks) and orange; cream-colored dust jacket printed in French blue and black. Fine (very lightly read, if at all), with neat presentation inscription dated 1922 on first front blank; in a lightly restored example of the "absurdly fragile" (Pastore) jacket that presents as just about Fine, with a hint of fading to the spine and the flap folds dust-soiled. Pastore, pp. 67-73. Johnson, High Spots, pp. 50-51. Sinclair Lewis's unconventionally written tale of a middling, middle-aged man in a mid-level career in a Midwestern town facing a series of psychological crises that reveal to him the emptiness of his superficially successful and prosperous life. Like Main Street, Lewis's first best-selling novel, Babbitt generated controversy (Lewis found himself the target of articles in such unlikely journals as the National Real Estate Journal, Rotarian, and Nation's Business), became a cultural phenomenon, and contributed a new word to the language. Generally, reviewers saw the book as an advance on Main Street, with fewer dull spots. Because of it, H. L. Mencken became an avid Lewis supporter, writing in Smart Set that the novel was both a great "social document" and "bitingly funny." For many later readers, the book defines the 1920s, as did Scott Fitzgerald's This Side of Paradise and The Great Gatsby and Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises. And, not incidentally, it was more than partially responsible for Lewis winning the Nobel Prize. (adapted from The Literary Encyclopedia).
