        Herode [Salome: drame en un acte]

      Paris, c. 1922. Original illustration in red and black ink and pencil on paper. 11 7/8 by 9 1/2 in. This drawing first appeared in Fifty Drawings by Alastair, published by Knopf in 1925, and a similar version was used in the Paris edition of Wilde's text published the same year. Beardsley's popularity and sudden death created opportunities for other artists of the Decadent movement, such as Alastair and Erté. This drawing exhibits the understated menace of Beardsley, but with an eye toward texture. The detail in Herod's elaborate robe, and the plant and vase to his left exhibit a distinctly Asian aesthetic. Some glue residue on verso, else a very fine drawing by one of the most popular book illustrators of the first half of the twentieth century.

        Mexkemahuastan. Chief of the Gros-ventres de Prairies [Vig. 20]

      [Leipzig: Schmidt and Guenther, 1922]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Hürlimann after Bodmer. 12 x 9 inches. 18 9/16 x 12 5/8 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.1 Bodmer painted this portrait of Mexkemáuastan (`Stirring Iron'), an Atsina or Gros Ventre chief and medicine man, on about 5 August 1833. The keelboat Flora stopped opposite an Atsina camp at the mouth of the Judith River and was quickly overrun by friendly but insistent Atsinas, including `Stirring Iron'. He gave particular cause for concern because he had threatened to kill David Mitchell (the superintendant of Fort McKenzie) the previous year. However, on this occasion, and later at Fort McKenzie he gave no further cause for concern.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 entire volume in contemporary cloth offered here.. First paper: First seperate edition of a lecture delivered by Bohr before the Physical Society of Copenhagen on October 18, 1921. In this lecture Bohr attacked the problem of atomic constitution by asking the question: "How may an atom be formed by the successive capture of the electrons one by one in the field of force surrounding the nucleus?" The answers are found primarly from an analysis of the observed spectra with quidance from the chemical properties and the correspondance principle. (Collected Works, vol. 4, pp.20). The lecture was quickly translated into German and published in 'Zeitschrift für Physik' (second paper offered). It was next included as a third part of 'Drei Aufsätze über Spektren und Atombau' (Braunschweig: Friedr. Vieweg, 1922). An English translation was published as the third essay in 'The Theory of Spectra and Atomic Constitution' (Cambridge: University Press, 1922). A year later a French version appeared in 'Les spectres et la Structure de l´atome' (Paris: J.Herman, 1923).See Pais: Niels Bohr's Times, pp.202-208

        Faust

      (Darmstadt: Ernst Ludwig Presse, 1922-23). Two large octavo volumes. 214, (iv); 323, (ii)pp. From an edition of 1,000 copies, this is one of 100 large paper copies. Designed, and with initial lettering by Christian Heinrich Kleukens, whose choice of typeface and the lithesome opening initial “I” clearly show the influence of T. J. Cobden-Sanderson. Kleukens was an artistic director of the Ernst Ludwig Presse from 1907 until 1937. According to Roderick Cave, the style of the Press was relatively severe and essentially served as a vehicle for the use of typefaces designed by Christian and his brother Friedrich Wilhelm, who worked together at the Press until 1914, when Friedrich left to found the Kleukens Presse. Bound by Ernst Rehbein at the Kleukens Binderei in full vellum, with gilt titling and rules. An elegant set that shows light soiling to front panel of volume two. Housed in cream cloth slipcase.

        Sketchbook of the Holy Land

      v.p. [Palestine, Egypt], 1922. 8vo. 63 pen and ink sketches on colored paper, captioned, some with Biblical-inspired verse, in English, Hebrew, and Arabic, many SIGNED with the artist's monogram ("HWL") and with his ownership inscription on front pastedown and 1 p. in manuscript explaining the contents of the sketchbook. Tan cloth, frayed at spine, lightly soiled, front hinge cracked, internally fine . Lyouns (1863-1933) introduces this intense and personal sketchbook, "I filled this little sketchbook with sixty-three sketches, ethereal, spiritual, mystic as well as material subjects. [ ... My] spirit bird greeted me and bid me farewell and God speed on my way home, there to fulfill the Destiny - To translate my inspirational pictures and verse to those who will see and hear." Indeed he moves from the material - camels crossing the desert, views of Jerusalem and Port Said - to ecstatic visions of Biblical prophecy - angels trumpeting the resurrection of Jesus. One senses the deep spiritual feeling in these sketches, executed in a rapid, impressionistic style

Unpaginated, approx. 160 pages. 26 x 20.5 cm. Forty-seven plates, four in color. Originally published St. Petersburg, 1918 in a limited edition of 750 copies. 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). An important album of of sketches and paintings depicting Russian peasant life on the eve of the October Revolution. 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

        THE MEMOIRS

      London: The Casanova Society, 1922. ONE OF 1,000 COPIES. 254 x 203 mm (10 x 8"). 12 volumes bound in six. Translated by Arthur Machen. Attractive later burgundy half morocco over red linen boards by Bayntun (stamp-signed on front flyleaf in each volume), raised bands flanked by gilt rules, spine panels with gilt chandelier-like centerpiece, each spine with two olive brown morocco labels, top edges gilt. With 12 frontispieces of various kinds (a bust of Casanova, a large fold-out map of Venice, a fold-out facsimile of two documents in Casanova's hand, an engraving showing a Casanova escape, two portraits of Casanova, a title page of a minor work by Casanova, a portrait of Manon Baletti, engravings of a London cityscape and of Vaux Hall, Casanova's death record, and his grave). Corners a bit worn, joints of the early volumes a little rubbed (two joints with minor cracks), one volume with small loss of leather at bottom of spine, but still quite an attractive set, the bindings entirely sound and without any serious wear, and the wide-margined text in virtually unused condition. Based on the rare unabridged London edition of 1894, this is an attractively bound copy of a limited edition of what Franco Fido (in the "Cambridge History of Italian Literature") calls "one of the most entertaining and exciting tales of the century." Fido says that sometime during the last eight years of his life, the Italian-born Casanova (1725-98) "composed his 'Histoire de ma Vie,' above all in order to relive in writing the vivid sensations and intense pleasures of his vagabond, libertine life and thus compensate for his gloomy and solitary existence as librarian in a remote castle in Bohemia." Written in fluent French, the account describes with unabashed frankness Casanova's rogueries and amours across an 18th century Europe that comes alive as the narrative backdrop. A writer of romantic and macabre tales, our translator Arthur Machen (1863-1947) provides a preface here in which he calls Casanova not only a "woman hunter," but also an "occult swindler" who victimizes senators, noble ladies, and Dutch financiers with a phony cabala. Also in this special edition are two additional chapters discovered by Arthur Symons, an index, and a map indicating the hero's itineraries. Our quarto-size volumes are distinguished by an extremely pleasing italic typeface and are handsomely printed in general.

        Holcomb's Mill

      [1922]. Etching. Edition of 25. Signed in plate, and titled and signed by the artist in pencil and initialed "D. G. imp." Excellent condition apart from some very light soiling.5 3/16 x 6 7/16 inches. 6 5/8 x 7 1/2 inches. A finely rendered landscape by one of the key figures of late American Impressionism. "See the light!" was one of Garber's favorite admonitions to his students. "Holcomb's Mill" is a superb demonstration of his own diligence in observation of light and form. As is the case with most of his etchings, this print is based on one of his paintings "The Old Mill" of 1921, now in the Smithsonian Collection. Born in North Manchester, Indiana, the painter and printmaker Daniel Garber was one of the most prominent and innovative members of the Pennsylvania School of Impressionism, a group of painters based in New Hope, Pennsylvania that depicted the picturesque landscapes of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The group included Edward Willis Redfield, Walter Elmer Schofield, and John Fulton Folinsbee. After training at the Art Academy of Cincinnati with Frank Duveneck, Gerber studied with J. Alden Weir and Thomas Anschutz at the Pennsylvania Academy, which awarded him a grant to study abroad in 1905. Two years later, he returned to Pennsylvania, where he set up a studio in Lumbersville, Bucks County and became an active figure in the New Hope art community. Garber's oeuvre includes several figure paintings and innumerable landscapes, the most famous of which is a series of works of the quarries in Byram, New Jersey from 1917. During his career, he painted in two distinct styles. His impressionistic works, which he began painting in England during his fellowship, are characterized by an avid attention to detail and shape. He later developed a more romantic, lyrical style that is distinguishable by its more decorative nature and a concern with the atmospheric effects created by nuances of light and shadow. Garber exhibited at several venues including the National Academy of Design and the Woodmere Art Museum and became a tremendously influential and much loved teacher at his alma mater, the Pennsylvania Academy, in 1919.
