        Fac Simile of an Indian Painting [Tab. 22]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Aquatint engraving by J. Hurlimann after Bodmer. 13 3/8 x 18 3/4 inches. 19 3 /16 x 25 1/2 inches. 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) An important record of the work of the prominent Mandan Chief, Mató-Tópe (`Four Bears'). He here records an incident from amongst his own many war exploits: during hand-to- hand combat with a Cheyenne Chief, he grabbed for his opponent's knife and wounded his own hand in the process. In the actual encounter he managed to get hold of the knife and used it to kill his opponent. Mató-Tópe was the second chief of the Mandans, one of George Catlin's closest Indian friend (he had painted him in 1832) and a popular leader amongst his people, respected for his prowess in battle. He was also admired by Prince Maximilian, not only for his bravery and his knowledge of the customs of the Mandans and the neighboring Arikaras, but also for his strength of character and generosity. 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. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 1985, p.18. Cf.Graff 4648; cf. Howes M443a; cf. Pilling 2521; cf. Sabin 47014; cf. Wagner-Camp 76:1.

        The Waste Land

      New York: Boni and Liveright. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Fine. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, FIRST STATE of the most influential poem of the twentieth century. Complete with the extremely rare dust jacket and glassine. With important provenance: from the estate of Scofield Thayer. "Assembled out of dramatic vignettes based on Eliot's London life, The Waste Land's extraordinary intensity stems from a sudden fusing of diverse materials into a rhythmic whole of great skill and daring. Though it would be forced into the mold of an academic set piece on the order of Milton's 'Lycidas,' The Waste Land was at first correctly perceived as a work of jazzlike syncopation--and, like 1920s jazz, essentially iconoclastic. A poem suffused with Eliot's horror of life, it was taken over by the postwar generation as a rallying cry for its sense of disillusionment. Pound, who helped pare and sharpen the poem when Eliot stopped in Paris on his way to and from Lausanne, praised it with a godparent's fervor. As important, Eliot's old friend Thayer, by then publisher of the Dial, decided even before he had seen the finished poem to make it the centerpiece of the magazine's attempt to establish American letters in the vanguard of modern culture. To secure The Waste Land for the Dial, Thayer arranged in 1922 to award Eliot the magazine's annual prize of two thousand dollars and to trumpet The Waste Land's importance with an essay commissioned from the Dial's already influential Edmund Wilson. It did not hurt that 1922 also saw the long-heralded publication of Ulysses, or that in 1923 Eliot linked himself and Joyce with Albert Einstein in the public mind in an essay entitled 'Ulysses, Order and Myth.' Meteorically, Eliot, Joyce, and, to a lesser extent, Pound were joined in a single glow--each nearly as notorious as Picasso" (American National Biography). Provenance: From the estate of Scofield Thayer, Eliot's good friend and the publisher of the Dial, who awarded Eliot the Dial's 1922 annual literary prize and was instrumental in getting the poem published. This copy has never been in circulation - it has come directly from the Thayer estate, with an accompanying letter of provenance. #91 of 1000 copies published. One of approximately 500 copies of the first issue, with flexible black cloth binding and stamped limitation number 5mm high. With first state of text ("mountain") on page 41. With advertising bookmark presumably issued with the book laid-in. New York: Boni and Liveright, 1922. Octavo, original flexible black cloth, original glassine, original dust jacket; custom half-leather box. Book with pristine text entirely unopened, but with damage to the cloth on the upper joint and a little fraying at top corner and bottom edge. Glassine with wear and chips corresponding to the damage in cloth; dust jacket exceptionally clean and fresh with only chips to spine ends. EXTREMELY SCARCE complete with dust jacket and glassine, and with a significant provenance.

        Etiquette.

      New York: Funk & Wagnalls Company, 1922. - First edition of this seminal work in etiquette and personal relations. Octavo, original blue cloth with titles to the spine and front panel in gilt. In very good condition with some light rubbing to the spine extremities. A very sharp copy of this rare first edition. Etiquette is a seminal work in personal relations that ranges from topics on how to conduct oneself when meeting strangers to how one should behave at formal dinners and engagements. It has pioneered many social networking concepts, granting Post a name synonymous with proper etiquette and manners that is referenced in etiquette books even today. Joan Didion, contemporary author of The Year of Magical Thinking, considered Post's entry on funerals a source of great consolation after the passing of her husband (Campbell, 2005). The recent publication of Post's first full-length biography suggests that her legacy is pertinent more now than ever (Claridge, 2008). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Funeral Scaffold of a Sioux Chief near Fort Pierre [Tab. 11]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Hürlimann after Bodmer. 13 3/4 x 16 3/4 inches. 18 5/8 x 24 3/16 inches. 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) An image of powerful spirituality: the living continue their lives whilst acknowledging both the mortality of their relatives and by extension themselves. This fine plate is from a sketch by Bodmer made on 28 April 1834 during the journey back down the Missouri River. The scene is near Fort Pierre; the scaffold in the right foreground holds the remains of a warrior who had apparently been brought home from a great distance. Scaffold burial, on an erected platform or in the limbs of a tree, was a wide spread practice amongst the plains peoples in general and the Sioux in particular, for whom the ritual held deep spiritual significance. 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.

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. Hunt, "Karl Bodmer and the American Frontier," Imprint/Spring 1985, p.18. Cf.Graff 4648; cf. Howes M443a; cf. Pilling 2521; cf. Sabin 47014; cf. Wagner-Camp 76:1.

        ZIVOT. Výtvarný sborník. List pro výtvarnou práci a umeleckou kulturu.

      Prague: F. Borovy, 1921-44; 1946-48 1922 - Quarto, octavo, boards, cloth and wrappers. Zivot (Life) was an important art journal, various editors, running from 1921 to 1948 except for 1945. In 1922 under the editorship of architect Jaroslav Krejcar and Karel Teige, it became briefly a flagship of the avant-garde and arm of Devetsil, and that annual is much sought-after with important articles and graphics heralding the Devetsil movement. There it announced Czech art and design to be in synch with the leading experiments in international modernism. Some years were released as annuals alone, others came in segments of ten issues. The journal’s subtitle ranges from „Art Review“ to „Review of Art & Literature“ to „Papers on the Fine Arts and Artistic Culture“ with a few further variants. Aside from the 1922 edition, it was generally dedicated to all aspects of art history, with emphasis on more recent developments but as a continuum with past traditions. There are a host of original graphics by Czech artists throughout, including a signed woodcut by Josef Šíma and stamped litho by František Tichý, a number of linocuts by Josef Capek, original woodcuts by Sedlácek and others. While the greatest emphasis was on painting, graphics and sculpture of all periods in art history, there are also interesting treatments of current architectural and stage design. There are also important poems, treatises and critical reviews by the Czech illuminati of the day. Complete, except lacking four issues of year XXI. Very uncommon, with library holdings only scattered issues and years and no complete sets outside of the Czech Republic. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Winston S. Churchill Official Biography, Companion Volume V, Parts 1, 2, 3. The Exchequer Years, The Wilderness Years, The Coming of War

      All three Volume V Companions, each fine in a fine dust jacket. All three are U.S. first editions. These three volumes are the key to forming complete complete sets of Churchill’s Official Biography. Many sets are without these volumes since there was only a single printing in England (which included sheets for the American Edition) and the volume V Companions were published in smaller quantities than the other Official Biography Volumes. Offered here is a rare prize for collectors – all three Volume V Companions together. Part 1, The Exchequer Years 1922-1929 has a trifling bump to the lower corner of the top board and a tiny previous owner’s sticker to the ffep, but it otherwise immaculate in an unclipped, nearly perfect dust jacket. Part 2, the Wilderness years 1929-1935, likewise has a tiny previous owner’s sticker to the ffep, but features an immaculate binding. The dust jacket is price-clipped, but otherwise flawless. Part 3, The Coming of War 1936-1939, is truly fine in a truly fine unclipped dust jacket. The only flaw is some neat pencil notation along the right edge of the ffep and a small triangle at the top right corner of the ffep has been clipped.

        Au coin des lèvres. Manuscrit dédicacé

      Ensemble exceptionnel consacré à une pièce de théâtre de Théotiste, dite Théo, Martin (1895 ? 1976). Cette femme écrivain, très active dans le milieu culturel et journalistique niçois, fonde en 1930 le Salon des Poètes de Nice et en 1934 le Grand Prix de Poésie de la ville de Nice. Elle est rédactrice en chef des échos au Petit Niçois de 1923 à 1944, puis à L'Espoir de 1945 à 1949. Elle publie ses premiers vers en 1912, puis des recueils : Les chants qui pleurent (1916), L'Aubergrise (1917), La Sonate improvisée (1927, Prix de l'Académie Française et de l'Académie Méditerranéenne), Le Voyage dans ton c?ur (1933). Pour les scènes niçoises, elle écrit aussi des pièces en vers : Un Noël alsacien, Le Retour, L'Autre blessure, Le Portrait, Le Film parlant (en prose). Nous proposons ici son manuscrit intégral d'Au coin des lèvres, « marivaudage en Un acte, en vers », qui fut créé le 31 avril 1922 à la Matinée artistique organisée par la Croix Rouge au bénéfice du Foyer du Soldat dans la Salle Victor Hugo, à Nice, joué par Mmes Marg. Grépon et Lisy Vadia, MM. La Banie, de La Filholie et de La Perche. La pièce se situe en Bourgogne vers 1700 et est caractéristique du soin élégant des compositions de la poétesse qui choisit l'Alexandrin. Le manuscrit a été écrit par Théo Martin à l'encre violette sur 52 feuillets numérotés (16,5 x 22cm) d'un cahier d'écolier de la marque « La science ». En page de titre, datée d'octobre 1922, un très bel envoi de Théo Martin à Trotobas, et un mot de sympathie de la comédienne Lisy Vadia (signant de son personnage Lison). En fontispice, sur un carton fort, une photographie originale (14x9cm) est contrecollée, représentant la troupe des comédiens en costumes. Un tampon de la SACEM en 3ème et dernier feuillet du manuscrit. Sur le dernier feuillet non numéroté figure la signature de Théo Martin. Joint le programme de la matinée artistique et deux cartons d'invitations de la Croix Rouge pour cette matinée. Joints aussi, sans rapport avec cette matinée, un programme de concert moderne de la cantatrice Gabrielle Lutscher et sa photo-carte postale dédicacée à Eugène Trotobas. Magistrat et avocat de l'écrivain espagnol Vicente Blasco-Ibanez, mais aussi un grand bibliophile, il avait reçu de Théo Martin ce manuscrit en témoignage de son affection fraternelle et qu'il a conservé dans une belle reliure avec un premier plat orné de filets dorés. Le dos est émoussé avec une morsure de 3 cm en coiffe supérieure. Cet ensemble est d'autant plus précieux que cette pièce semble n'avoir jamais été publiée (absente de la Bibliothèque Nationale et des bases de données théâtrales).

Friedmann "Über die Krümmung des Raumes" (1923); 4. [Friedmann] Über die Möglichkeit einer Welt mit konstanter negativer Krümmung des Raumes (1924).Berlin: Julius Springer, 1922-24.

      First editions of these fundamental papers in cosmology, and very scarce in the original printed wrappers. "Here we have, for the first time, the idea of an expanding universe originating in a singularity - a big-bang universe" (Kragh, p. 24). "Friedman's fundamental contributions to relativistic cosmology are contained in two papers, 'On the Curvature of Space,' and 'On the Possibility of a World with Constant Negative Curvature,' that were published in the <i>Zeitschrift für Physik</i> (1922, 1924). Friedman's notion of an expanding universe was at first rejected by Einstein, who asserted without proof that his conclusion rested upon a mathematical error. Einstein later withdrew this statement in another brief notice. Evidence supporting Friedman's model of the expanding universe was later supplied by Edwin Hubble's announcement of the velocity-distance relationship" (<i>Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers</i>).<br/><br/> "In his paper of 1922, Friedmann offered a complete analysis of the solutions of Einstein's cosmological field equations that went beyond the earlier solutions of Einstein and de Sitter as it also included non-static solutions. Friedmann did so clearly and explicitly: "The purpose of this note", he wrote, "is firstly to show that the cylindrical [Einstein] and spherical [de Sitter] worlds are special cases of more general assumptions, and secondly to demonstrate the possibility of a world in which the curvature of space is independent of the three spatial coordinates but does depend on time" ... The expanding universe was clearly in Friedmann's work, which also explicitly referred to the finite age of one type of such a universe, originating from a singularity ... He thus introduced into cosmology two concepts of revolutionary importance, the age of the world and the creation of the world" (Kragh, p. 24). <br/><br/> Friedmann showed that Einstein's static solution was unstable: any small perturbation would make the universe non-static. "Einstein quickly responded to Friedmann's article. His reply [paper 2] was received by <i>Zeitschrift für Physik</i> on 18 September 1922: "The results concerning the non-stationary world, contained in Friedmann's work, appear to me suspicious. In reality it turns out that the solution given in it does not satisfy the field equations." On 6 December, Friedmann wrote Einstein: "Considering that the possible existence of a non-stationary world has a certain interest, I will allow myself to present to you here the calculations I have made ... for verification and critical comment... Should you find the calculations presented in my letter correct, please be so kind as to inform the editors of <i>Zeitschrift für Physik</i> about it: perhaps in this case you will publish a correction to your statement or provide an opportunity for a portion of this letter to be published." <br/><br/> "However, by the time the letter reached Berlin, Einstein had already left on a trip to Japan. He did not return to Berlin until March but he still did not seem to have read Friedmann's letter. Only when Krutkov, a colleague of Friedmann's from Petrograd, met Einstein at Ehrenfest's house in Leiden in May 1923 and told him of the details contained in Friedmann's letter did Einstein admit his error. He wrote immediately to <i>Zeitschrift für Physik</i> [paper 3]: "In my previous note I criticized [paper 1]. However, my criticism, as I became convinced by Friedmann's letter communicated to me by Mr Krutkov, was based on an error in my calculations. I consider that Mr Friedmann's results are correct and shed new light" " (Carmeli, p. 321). <br/><br/> The solutions described by Friedmann in 1) all exhibited constant positive spatial curvature (i.e. independent of spatial coordinates but possibly depending on time). His paper 4) completed the work by exhibiting solutions with zero and constant negative scalar curvature. This was important in relation to the question of the finiteness of space: "The possibility of deriving from the world equations a world of constant positive spatial curvature stand, however, in close relation to the finiteness of space. For this reason it may be of interest to investigate whether one can obtain from the same world equations a world of constant negative curvature, the finiteness of which ... can hardly be argued for." This for the first time raised the possibility of 'open' universes. <br/><br/> For reasons that remain unclear, Friedmann's results went largely unnoticed at the time (with the notable exception of Einstein). They were rediscovered a full decade later by Howard Percy Robertson and Arthur Geoffrey Walker, and are often still known as 'Robertson-Walker' models. They would come to form the standard models for big bang theories of the universe. <br/><br/> Einstein had a philosophical bias toward static solutions, and he was led by Friedmann's results to attempt to restore the stability of static solutions by introducing the 'cosmological constant' into the field equations of general relativity. He was later to call this his 'biggest blunder', but some theorists today believe that it may hold the key to the understanding of 'dark matter' and 'dark energy'. <br/><br/> H. Kragh. <i>Cosmology and Controversy</i>, 1996; M. Carmeli, <i>Relativity: Modern large-scale spacetime structure of the cosmos</i>, 2008; DSB V 188.

        Osvobozenà Slova (Les mots en liberté futuristes). II. vydání.

      Praha, Nakladatelé Petra Tvrdy, 1922. 1922 In-8° (203x133mm), pp. 74, (14) [le ultime 14 impresse solo al recto], brossura editoriale illustrata da Josef Capek (il celebre artista e poeta fratello di Karel Capek) con una xilografia in tinta rossa. 4 tavv. ripiegate f.t. con tavole parolibere. Restauro marginale ad una delle tavv. ripiegate. Parzialmente intonso. Ottimo esemplare. Seconda edizione in lingua cèca (traduzione di Jirky Macák) de "Les mots en liberté futuristes", famoso manifesto futurista marinettiano steso all'origine in lingua francese (in quanto destinato a un pubblico internazionale) ed esponente tutti i principali capisaldi del movimento, dalla distruzione della sintassi istituzionalizzata all'esaltazione delle parole in libertà, dalla rivoluzione dell'ordine tipografico al ricorso incessante all'onomatopea e allo sperimentalismo verbale. Il volume presenta una parte teorica in cui si vuole dimostrare che il Futurismo ha influenzato ed anticipato tutto lo sperimentalismo del mondo. In funzione esemplificativa seguono alcune tavole "parolibere" in cui si precisano i canoni d?una spazialità tipografica astratta di grande suggestione. La versione fu pubblicata un anno dopo la visita di Marinetti a Praga. Cfr. Cammarota, Marinetti, 93. Dizionario del Futurismo, p. 249: "Quest'edizione ha avuto una grande importanza per lo sviluppo della poesia cèca d'avanguardia e ha influito anche sull'evoluzione della nuova arte tipografica cèca".
