        Ho-Tai : dzejoli 1921. -1922. (Ho-Tai : Verses 1921 - 1922)

      Vainags, Riga 1922 - Latvian language. Octavo 12 x 15 cm. Weight 30 gr. Wrappers, 27 [4] pp. The book is in perfect condition, without any defects, losses, remarks and stains. Some uncut pages indicate that the book has never been read. Present cycle of poems by Linards Laicens is considered as one of the best books of love lyrics in Latvian literature. It is stand-alone work in author's leftist propaganda literary creation. Verses full of Eastern exotic dedicated to Anna Lacis, Latvian actress, who lived with poet before her arresting for left-wing underground organizations participance. In Ho-Tai author successfully applied forms borrowed from Chinese poetry. Here he began experiments with free verse. Modernist Chinese-style graphical cover design created by leading Latvian artist Niklavs Strunke. Book was re-edited several times (1968, 1983). Present copy is rare first edition in excellent condition. Linards Laicens (1883-1938) was Latvian leading leftist avant-garde writer and poet. He took part in the revolution of 1905 and supported the idea of independence, but in 1920 he became a communist, moving to the Soviet Union in 1932. Six years later he fell victim to the purge of 1938 and was imprisoned and shot. In literary works Laicens defends the idea of "new" art that will sweep away the old one - an idea that was crucial not only for futurists and other modernists poets but also for the propagandists of proletarian literature in the Soviet Union.

        Ogni sviatogo Dominika: p'esa [The Fires of St. Dominic]

      Knigoizdatel'stvo "Slovo", Berlin 1922 - Octavo (19.5 × 14.5 cm). Original pictorial wrappers by Aleksandr Arnshtam; 58, [2] pp. About very good; occasional light soil to corners; rear wrapper somewhat creased. First edition of Russian modernist and dystopian writer Evgenii Zamyatin's play, which is set in sixteenth-century Spain during the Inquisition. Zamyatin returned to Russia shortly before the October Revolution after working abroad for many years, and he wrote numerous short stories during the following years, as well as teaching courses on Russian literature. By the early 1920s he was one of the most well-known but also controversial writers. The present work, Zamyatin's only play, was recognized by contemporaries as an allegory of the Soviet Cheka, or secret police. A short preface to the work notes that "Those who were convinced of their infallibility decided to drive all who disobeyed into their paradise by means of weapons and bonfires." Completed in 1920, the work was first published in 1922 by the Berlin émigré publishing house "Slovo" ("The Word"). A number of reviews took note of its anti-Soviet pathos and helped set off the long-running campaign against Zamyatin, who only left the Soviet Union in 1931, after personally petitioning Stalin for permission. With attractive drawn wrappers by Alexander Arnstam, a noted artist and graphic designer who had left Russia for Berlin in 1921. Savine 04597. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Sbornik statei po natsionalnomu voprosu [The Collection of Essays on the National Question].

      Tiflis, Izd-vo Zakkraikoma RKP, 1922. - 8vo. (4), 127, (1) pp. Original printed wrappers. The first edition of Stalin's second book; extremely rare. It is widely known that Stalin's role in the party during pre-Revolutionary times was mostly practical: assigned to supply money for the cause by way of expropriations, he became a well-known figure around 1905, and later, during the Civil War, a commander of the Red Army and a party leader. Very little was known of Stalin's political views before Lenin's death in 1924. While Stalin was always regarded as the loyal executor, unlike all other key Bolshevist figures he had not published any significant works - merely occasional articles in which he did not give away a clear position. Stalin became the People's Commissar for the nationalities in 1917 when the position was created. The committee survived until 1924, when the USSR was formed. The present book should be regarded as a collection of his essays on the subject of the national question. One of the principal ideas here advanced by Stalin was that the marginal areas of the Russian Empire should not be separated. He argues that all nations should join in the fight for the world revolution while the colonies of the British Empire ought to be liberated. On this point he contradicts Lenin, who at that time was prepared to grant sovereignty to some nations such as Finland. It is worth noting the author's name on the title page: Stalin used various worknames within and outside the party, largely due to the illicit nature of his pre-revolutionary activity (research has found him to have used nearly 30 party bynames at the time). In this brochure his name is given as "Stalin (Koba-Dzhugashvili)", citing his two most popular worknames and his real Georgian surname which he would not use in later years, and no more books appeared under it. At the time, Stalin was already vying for the party leadership with Trotsky, Kamenev, Zinoviev and others, and he may have felt it necessary to declare himself. - Slight paper loss to title page, meticulously restored with matching paper, with part of a single letter nearly imperceptibly supplied. Otherwise fine. Mostly uncut, untrimmed copy as issued. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Original beige boards stamped in gilt on the upper cover, vellum backstrip lettered in gilt, a bit soiled and dull but fine internally. De luxe edition #389 of an edition limited to 550 copies signed by Rackham. An unusual book for Rackham, but one in which he explored the beauty of sensuality in an enchanted realm (omitting some of Milton's uglier conceits) and gave the poem a new and rather delightful tone.

        Päikseratas: poeem [Wheel of the sun: a poem]. Ellai, no. 2

      Ellai, Võru 1922 - Octavo (17.3 × 12 cm). Original staple-stitched pictorial wrappers by Jaan Vahtra; 29, [1] pp. Printed on laid paper. With twelve smaller (plate measuring ca. 6 x 7 cm.) and one full-page original woodcut prints (plate measuring 12 x 8 cm), as well as the large publisher's device, all by Jaan Vahtra. Wrappers lightly foxed; still a very good copy. The third book of poems by Reiman, beautifully illustrated with Vahtra's woodcuts. The work was overlooked by critics at the time, in part because of its publication in the Estonian province, where Reiman lived. It contains a poetic cycle consisting of twelve poems, each of which represents one month of the year. Friedebert Tuglas, another key representative of Estonian literary modernism, considered Reiman one of the most interesting lyric poets of the time, whose verse was formally complicated to the point of virtuosity. With twelve smaller and one larger woodcut prints by Jaan Vahtra (1882-1947), Estonia's most important representative of expressionist, cubist and constructivist tendencies. Vahtra was trained in Riga and St. Petersburg and, upon returning to Estonia, became associated with the Pallas School and helped found the Group of Estonian Artists, both in Tartu. Beginning in 1923, he developed a distinct cubist and constructivist style that he promoted through his teaching, book illustrations and art practice. Estonian art historian Mai Levin writes: "At that time of stormy innovation the new art was too new to be distinctly analysed and classified. The view of Herwath Walden that expressionism included cubism, futurism and other trends was shared by many [?]. So the works of our cubists-constructivists are until 1923 typically expressionistic, despite a tendency towards a slightly cubistic angularity." This was the second work to appear in the series "Ellai", the first being a bound suite of woodcuts by Vahtra entitled "Blanc et noir" (1921), issued in 100 numbered copies. This title was published in 550 copies (print run stated on colophon). Rare; not found in KVK, OCLC. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

He soon became known as the "Postcard King" and designed over 5,000 comic cards. The year1915 marked a defining point in Wall's artistic career. Wall visited Colorado, Nevada and California making etchings of Indians, cowboys and major cities which were later published in a portfolio entitled, "Under Western Skies." These proved to be very successful and the artist shortly thereafter moved to California permanently. Wall continued to produce many fine etchings of the American West and by 1930 had also become a much respected historian of the region. Bernhardt Wall was unique in that he not only drew the etchings for his books, but he also printed and bound them. His books are in libraries and universities around the world including the British Museum, Library of Congress, the libraries of Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Brown Universities. His works were also in the private collections of J. P. Morgan, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Henry C. Frick and Dr. N.C. Mathewson. Wall etched three sitting presidents of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, Warren Taft, and Henry Coolidge. Other prominent individuals etched by Wall include Sam Houston, Mark Twain, Thomas A. Edison, Abraham Lincoln, and Andrew Jackson. Artist and historian, Bernhardt Wall (1872-1956) was a pioneer etcher and producer of fine press books who treated a vast array of subjects, including Texas and the Southwest. Historians of fine press printing have compared him to William Blake. This collection of Wall's scrapbooks, publications, and correspondence was built by collector Natalie Williams of Marshall, Texas.

      - Gérard PHILIPE (1922 - 1959), acteur français Lettre signée à l&#146;acteur Pierre Dux. 21 mars 1959 ; 1 page in-4° sur papier en-tête du « Syndicat Français des Acteurs », avec enveloppe. Lettre véhémente signée en tant que président du syndicat français des acteurs et défenseur de leur cause : « Le Conseil Syndical ayant pris connaissance des déclarations que vous avez laissé paraître dans le « Figaro » du 20 mars 1959, ne peut en accepter les termes particulièrement lorsqu&#146;il est dit : « je trouve personnellement qu&#146;un seul syndicat à direction politique c&#146;est déjà trop ». Le Conseil Syndical ne peut croire que vous ayez réfléchi aux conséquences d&#146;une telle déclaration. Il vous demande, soit de l&#146;informer au plus tôt dans le cas où votre bonne foi aurait été surprise, soit de venir vous en expliquer vous-même devant lui. Vous devez comprendre qu&#146;à l&#146;heure où les acteurs sont l&#146;objet de pressions de toutes sortes, une telle déclaration ne peut que nuire à leur unité et discréditer le Syndicat auprès du monde des Artistes et du Public » [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Osvobozena slova (Les mots en liberté futuristes). II. vydání. Translated into Czech by J. Macák. Josef Capek graphics

      Prague: Petr a Tvdrý 1922 - Octavo 20x13.5 cm., original wrappers, 85pp. with four foldouts. Second edition. Linocut cover & page design by Josef Capek. This second Czech edition of Macak's translation was a highly inventive response to Marinetti&#146;s visit to Prague in December 1921 and can be seen as the most creative exercise in Futurist books published in Czech. Capek&#146;s graphic work on this went beyond mere replication of the original graphics, employing the alphabetical symbols and phonetics unique to the Czech language. The publication had a major impact in the Czech publishing world and led to further developments in typography and book design. It is probably also one Josef Capek&#146;s most radical design statements in his long career of bookmaking, especially in the foldouts. Primus No. 6.

        Anna Pavlova; Translated from the Russian by A. Grey

      Paris: M. de Brunoff, 1922. Folio (13 x 10 inches). Half-title. Woodcuts by D. Galanis; 22 plates with tissue guards, complete, INCLUDING EIGHT BY LÉON BAKST, of which 13 in color; illustrations, some mounted, in text. Original printed wrappers, edges untrimmed; decorated gilt-paper slipcase. Spine perished, toned semicircle around slipcase opening on sides; some foxing internally but otherwise clean and crisp. A beautifully produced celebration of the life of renowned ballerina Anna Pavlova (1881-1931). The author was the leading Russian critic of the period. This lavish work is scarce in any condition (either in German, French or English) and aside from the damage to the fragile spine (too delicate for a heavy volume such as this), the present is a very well preserved and complete copy.
