      B.J. Brimmer Company Boston: B.J. Brimmer Company. 1922. First. First edition. Introduction by Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois. Boards slightly splayed, slight offsetting to the endpapers from the jacket flaps, a very near fine copy in a lightly foxed, very good plus dustwrapper with a few very small chips at the extremities. Housed in a custom cloth clamshell case with morocco spine label. For many years Johnson, an African-American woman comfortably married to a prominent Washington attorney, read voraciously, pursued a serious interest in music, and hosted the capital's only significant African-American literary salon, "The Saturday Nighter's Club." At 41 she published her first book of poetry, The Heart of a Woman, which was well-received but criticized in some quarters for not specifically addressing race. At the dawn of the Harlem Renaissance she published this influential collection in response. Of particular note were her poems concerning alienation and mixed race (Cedric Dover called her "the first to give peoples of mixed origin the pride in themselves that they so badly needed"). A notable rarity of African-Americana, rarely found with the flimsy jacket intact. We have handled this copy once before, but have never seen another jacketed copy. .

      The Casanova Society 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.

        Tilla Durieux spielen und träumen mit fünf radierungen und einer lithographie von Emil Orlik

      (Orlik, Emil). Tilla Durieux spielen und träumen mit fünf radierungen und einer lithographie von Emil Orlik. Berlin: Galerie Flechtheim, 1922. #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 didn’t 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 Calderon’s 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-François 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, Félix 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 Cézanne. 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 Reinhardt’s “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 Reinhardt’s 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.
