        LAS HOGUERAS DE CASTILLA. (1922)

      1922 - IMPRESOR-LUGAR: Barcelona: [s.n.], 1922 (Imp. Oliva de Vilanova) DESCRIPCIÓN FÍSICA: 5 h., 193 p., [1] h. 1 mapa y 10 grabados al aguafuerte de Castro Gil, Manuel (1891-1961). Viñetas coloreadas a mano, capitulares historiadas . Folio: 365 x 260 mm ENCUADERNACIÓN: Pergamino con título y autor rotulado en lomo. Escudo estampado y dorado en plano. CONSERVACIÓN: Muy buen ejemplar. Bello ejemplar de la edición limitada y numera de 500 ejemplares en papel hilo, siendo el presente el nº 51. Contiene las estampas al aguafuerte con panoramas de las ciudades de Toledo - Cuenca - Segovia - Medina Del Campo - Ávila - Valladolid - Palencia - León - Salamanca - Oviedo. Manuel CASTRO GIL [Lugo 1891 - Madrid 1961]. El escritor Wenceslao Fernandez Flórez, que utilizó un dibujo de Castro Gil para su mejor obra, «El bosque animado», dice el grabador: «Tiene bien probada una particularidad que, sin duda, habría que explicar por una razón racial: por innatas inclinaciones de su naturaleza céltica. Siente las piedras y los árboles. Ama a ese ser maravilloso que por estar sujeto a la tierra y vivir de ella por sus raíces, y elevar la cima a lo alto en aspiraciones celestes es el mejor símbolo del hombre y casi más hombre que un hombre, por su esquematismo cabal. Ama también las viejas ruinas cosidas con hiedra, la hermosura que duerme en el rincón de una callejuela, la que brota de un feliz hacinamiento de casitas, la de un simple muro en pie que aún conserva un rosetón sin vidrios. Y nadie sabe extraer tanta emoción como él de sus frecuentes veneros». (recogido de Novacaixagalicia) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Herbert Jenkins 1922 - London ,first variant in facsimile wrapper . A very good copy of an unrecorded first in green cloth with green lettering .A very rare item , which is identical to the orange clothed edition as described in Mcilvaine.I have never seen another copy or seen one offered in any of the major collections that have come up in the last twenty years which means absolutely nothing .I don't think it is a colonial edition as we have pretty well established that these early Herbert Jenkins titles used the UK firsts and stuck an oversize colonial label over the 7/6 or 3/6 . I am doubtful it was a trial binding as this was not Herbert Jenkins way so another PGW mystery. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

This copy in one of two postwar issues, and presumably one of a few issued for sale in England or North America, as it is stamped in English, "Printed in Austria" on front endpaper (contradicting perhaps intentionally, the attribution on the title page identifying the printer (in Cyrillic) as Muller of Postdam).

Grigoriev along with Leon Bakst, Serge Diaghilev, Ivan Bilibin and others was a late member of the "Mir iskusstva" artists [World of Art] movement founded in St. Petersburg in 1899 around the art journal that shared its name. This group adopting graphical techniques from Art Nouveau, Cubism and Futurism would prove extremely influential for the generation of revolutionary artists to follow. Editions of this work are uncommon; indisputably scarce in such an excellent state of preservation. Text in Russian Orig. pictorial cloth.

        THE HEPTAMERON OF THE TALES OF MARGARET, QUEEN OF NAVARRE

      Privately printed for the Navarre Society, London 1922 - 232 x 152 mm (9 1/8 x 6"). Five volumes. Publisher's original white buckram, gilt, covers with double fillet border and central medallion containing a fleur-de-lys, flat spines outlined by double fillet and featuring a tall tree with a grape vine twining around its trunk, gilt titling, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed and MOSTLY UNOPENED. IN ORIGINAL GRAY DUST JACKETS. With 150 head- and tailpieces by Dunker and 73 engraved plates designed by S. Freudenberg, as called for, all plates with tissue guards. Spines of dust jackets a little sunned and with very slight traces of use, one fore edge uneven (paper flaw), one tissue guard creased, but A REMARKABLY FINE SET, in as close to original condition as one could hope to find. Inspired by Boccaccio's "Decameron," this is an attractively printed, attractively bound edition in fabulous condition of a collection of tales comprising the most famous work of Margaret of Navarre (1492-1549), author, intellectual, and patron of humanists and reformers. It was originally intended to contain 100 stories, but the author died before the work could be completed. Characterized by Samuel Putnam as "the first modern woman," Marguerite d'Angoulême, the sister of French king Francis I and the wife of Henri II, king of Navarre, was an intelligent and unusually well-educated woman who could read Latin, Italian, Spanish, and Hebrew. She was very interested in church reform, and corresponded with Erasmus and Calvin, even sheltering the latter at her court for a time. The tales in the "Heptameron" (so called because it covers a seven-day period) are told by travellers stuck at an abbey in the Pyrenees after floods have washed out a bridge. The stories deal with love "as a serious and sometimes a tragic passion. Each tale is followed by a discussion in which views commonly current at the time, e.g., on the nature of love and its manifestations, are advanced, and opposed by the more moral and religious opinions of Marguerite herself. . . . There is no doubt the the 'Heptameron' was designed to have an elevating and civilizing influence. The tales throw light on details of life and custom among the upper classes of the day." ("Oxford Companion") While no one would mistake the Navarre Society publications for items from the Kelmscott Press, these are books made with care. An advertisement in "The Library" in 1923 says that "the Fine Publications of the Navarre Society . . . strike a new note in fine book production," being "limited in issue, printed in large type upon specially made paper, illustrated by leading artists, bound in cream buckram, gilt extra, and issued at moderate prices to subscribers." Our set is in impeccable condition, with unused interiors, spotless, unworn gilt-decorated white bindings, and beautifully preserved, uncommonly seen dust jackets. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH AND OTHER STORIES

      London, New York, Toronto and Melbourne: Cassell and Company, Ltd,. [1922]. Octavo, pp. [1-8] 1-307 [308] [309-310: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank],. original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in black.. A nearly fine copy. A sharp copy of a book which does not age. gracefully, (#110049). First edition. The contents of the Cassell edition differ from those in American edition published by Harper in 1922. The Cassell edition has the eight tales featuring Horne Fisher and the four-part "The Trees of Pride," plus three stories not in the Harper edition; "The Garden of Smoke," "The Five of Swords" and "The Tower of Treason." "The Garden of Smoke" is a murder mystery about roses and drugs. As is typical with Chesterton, it's also about the flimsiness of appearances and the paradox that the only really solid things are those that are unseen. A whiff of fantasy hangs over the story with its premise of a special, very rare kind of opium so good that it not only supplies the needed inspiration for "a famous lady novelist and fashionable poet," but the motivation for a murder. As is also typical with Chesterton, the male characters here and in the following story move about (deliberately or helplessly) on a plane of irony, while the heroine moves about on a plane of romance. "The Trees of Pride" is longer, more ambitious and more fantastic, dealing with the legend and superstitions surrounding a stand of peacock trees, a flamboyant Asian/African species that has been imported to a seaside town in Cornwall. The locals believe them responsible for a spate of recent deaths and disappearances in the town and want to cut them down. The owner of the estate, one of those "advanced" and "enlightened" specimens of modernity that Chesterton loves to attack, refuses. The arrival of an American critic and the local poet he has discovered provide the catalyst for what follows: the disappearance and presumed death of the estate owner after he announces angrily that he is going to spend the night in the grove of demon trees to dispel the local superstitions. The mystery is resolved with a kind of triple reverse as the supernatural gives way to the criminal, which gives way to the humorous, which gives way, once again, to the supernatural. The story has something of the feeling of Chesterton's fantasy masterpiece, THE MAN WHO WAS THURSDAY, as the reader falls through one trap door after another. The most explicit serious theme here is that elites should not be quick to dismiss a thing just because it is held true by the masses. The background legend from North Africa about the carnivorous peacock trees constitutes a very attractive and potently weird storyette; this and the ambiguity surrounding them in modern Cornwall allow for this story to be classified as fantastic. "The Five of Spades" is a murder mystery set in France amid the intersecting worlds of dueling and business. It blends cleverness (in its detection), idealism (in its romance), urbanity (in its cultural insights) and an abiding sense of mystery (in both the macrocosm of its plot and the microcosm of its aphorisms) as one seeming truth gives way, like a discarded mask, to another, and another, and so on: all of it adding up that characteristic Chestertonian bravura whose exuberant levity is exactly balanced by its moral gravity. The same could be said of "The Tower of Treason" (or, indeed, to one degree or another, of everything else that the author wrote), which moves the setting from the bright plains of France to the dark mountains of an unspecified Balkan country, from the busy doings of the secular to the intricate broodings of the monastic. The story involves diamonds and history, treason and sacrifice, each one indestructible, disappearing only to come back in faint echoes or brilliant flashes. This, the final story of the collection, closes it out on a more overtly religious note - or chord - reminding us that, at the very heart of Christianity and shot through it, is that Chestertonian trademark, paradox, the paradox of sacrifice, divine and human, which wears a mask of loss only to stand revealed in the final act as ultimate gain. The last paragraph, with its metaphorical equation of a diamond, a bullet, the truth, the soul and a star, is as dazzling and conclusive as a Euclidean proof. Beyond this pervasive sense of religious mysteriy, neither of the stories have any fantastic or supernatural content. Bleiler (1948), p. 77. Not in Bleiler (1978) or Reginald (1979; 1992).

        Tilla Durieux spielen und traumen mit funf radierungen und einer lithographie von Emil Orlik

      (Orlik, Emil). Tilla Durieux spielen und traumen mit funf radierungen und einer lithographie von Emil Orlik. Berlin: Galerie Flechtheim, 1922. No. 66 of 125 copies signed by Tilla Durieux and Emil Orlik. Sm folio, vellum backed-boards, slightly rubbed. With five original etchings and one lithograph, each signed by Orlik. A beautiful album of the first lady of the pre-WWII German stage. Tilla Durieux (August 18, 1880 - February 21, 1971) was a renowned German actress of the first three decades of the 20th century. Born Odilie Godefroy, daughter of Richard Goddefroy, a University professor in chemistry and a Hungarian pianist. Because they didnít support her acting career, she took the name of her French grandmother. She trained in Vienna, her native town, and got her first engagement in Bresla in 1902. Later she worked with Max Reinhardt and Erwin Piscator in Berlin. In 1912 she played Circe in Calderonís comedy of the same name. In 1913 she played Frank Wedekind's Lulu in Munich. Tilla Durieux was the first to perform Oscar Wilde's Salome on the stage and also the first Eliza Doolittle in Shaw's Pygmalion. In 1914 she made her film debut in the silent movie. Her private life found her four husbands, one of whom committed suicide, another perished in the camps. Her second husband, the successful art dealer and editor, Paul Cassirer, introduced her to important artists all over Europe (Renoir did a portrait of her). In 1933 she left Germany for Switzerland to escape Nazi rule. In 1937 she moved to Zagreb (then in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia) until 1953. She returned to Berlin in 1954. In 1959 she became an Honorary Member of the German Academy for Performing Arts and in 1961, a member of the Academy of Arts. Her last engagement was in 1969/1970 at the Wiesbadener Staatstheater. The artist Emil Orlik (b Prague, 21 July 1870; d Berlin, 28 Sept 1932) was a German printmaker and painter of Czech origin. Showing an early talent for drawing, he studied in Munich from 1889 to 1891 with Heinrich Knirr (1862-1944) and from 1891 to 1893 with Wilhelm Lindenschmitt (1829-95). As a draughtsman, he took particular interest in the work of Jean-Francois Millet, Max Liebermann, Adolph Menzel and Wilhelm Leibl. In 1898 he traveled to England, Scotland, Belgium, the Netherlands and Paris, becoming acquainted with the work of the French Impressionists and the prints of Whistler, Felix Vallotton and William Nicholson, and in 1899 he became a member of the Vienna Secession. After travels to Japan, in 1903 he again traveled to London, Amsterdam and Paris, where he became acquainted with the work of Cezanne. He then lived briefly in Vienna, where he was active in the circle of Gustav Klimt and Josef Hoffmann. A strong influence of the decorative impulses of the Vienna Secession is evident in the prints he made at this time. Most notable in his art career were two periods in Berlin. Immediately after arriving in Berlin in 1905 he formed a close connection with the theatre director Max Reinhardt (1873-1943). Orlik worked on a series of set and costume designs for productions at Reinhardtís "German Theatre" where he had occasion to sketch playwrights, including Gerhardt Hauptmann, Maxmilian Harden, Luigi Pirandello, Frank Wedekind and Oskar Kokoschka. He also often drew sketches of the outstanding actors in Reinhardtís group: Paul Wegener, Werner Krauss, Max Pallenberg, Emil Jannings, Ernst Deutsch, Alexander Moissi, Tilla Durieux, Lil Dagover and the Danish star of the German silent film era, Asta Nielsen. In the 1920s, he produced many expressive and atmospheric portrait sketches and studies of personalities from the artistic, literary, musical and more particularly theatrical life of Berlin society.

        Revolucni Sbornik Devetsil (Almanach révolutionnaire Devetsil)

      Praha (Prague), podzim, 1922., 1922. Toile bleue, dos titré en long, tranche supérieure rouge.. 15/22 cm, 202 pp., 3 ff.. Edition originale, postface en français signée :" union internationale des artistes d'avant-garde révolutionnaire". On trouve dans cette revue quelques textes en français de : Cocteau, Yvan Goll, Jindrich Horejsi, et aussi des illustrations in-texte de Marc chagall, Alexander Archipenko, Fernand léger, Roger Bissière, Modigliani, Seurat, Georg Grosz, Foujita, Coubine, Utrillo, Survage, etc.. Fondé en 1920, le groupe Devetsil réunit tous les acteurs de l’avant-garde tchèque sous la conduite de Karel Teige. D’abord chantre de l’art prolétarien puis, de l’esthétique des machines et rouages de la modernité industrielle, Devetsil devient ensuite un véritable carrefour de l’avant-garde européenne. L’explosion de ces échanges artistiques, littéraires, poétiques, typographiques se manifeste bien sûr par la création de revues. La première sera : Revolucni Sbornik Devetsil (que nous présentons ici) d'autres suivront, plus ou moins éphémères jusqu'en 1931, année qui verra naitre l’aube du surréalisme, annonçant la mort du groupe « constructivo-poétiste ». Si Prague en particulier et la Tchécoslovaquie de l'époque en général furent à la pointe des avant-gardes artistiques c'est en partie à Devetsil qu'elles le doivent et à sa revue artistique éponyme. Etat parfait.
