        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]

        Washington Irving Footprints. 21 etchings . First edition. Signed

      New York: Bernhardt Wall, 1922. Sq. 4to, 9 x 10 inches. Bound by Wall in grey cloth spine over etched boards; dust jacket with etched spine label. 21 etchings printed in colors on heavy wove paper (including cover and etcher's slip), of which five etchings are signed. NUMBER 51 OF 200 COPIES SIGNED BY WALL AND LYNCH and with his etcher's slip tipped in. Weber, Following Bernhardt Wall 1872-1956, page 33. Bernhardt Wall was born in Buffalo, New York on Dec. 30, 1872. He studied at the Buffalo Art Student's League then moved on to study in New York under Henry Reuterdahl and also apprenticed under William Auerbach-Levy. Wall began a career as a lithographic illustrator in 1889 working primarily as a commercial artist in New York and Buffalo. 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.

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’il est dit : « je trouve personnellement qu’un seul syndicat à direction politique c’est déjà trop ». Le Conseil Syndical ne peut croire que vous ayez réfléchi aux conséquences d’une telle déclaration. Il vous demande, soit de l’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’à l’heure où les acteurs sont l’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’s visit to Prague in December 1921 and can be seen as the most creative exercise in Futurist books published in Czech. Capek’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’s most radical design statements in his long career of bookmaking, especially in the foldouts. Primus No. 6.

        The Principle of Relativity with applications to Physical Science.

      1922 - Cambridge: University Press. 1922. 8vo. Original blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine; pp. xii + 190, diagrams to text; minimal rubbing to head and foot of spine, near fine. Provenance: ffep with pencil signature of the author's daughter Jessie Whitehead, herself well-known as a mountaineer, Arabist and pipe-smoking eccentric. First edition. Whitehead's critique of Einstein is an attempt to harmonise the theory of relativity with common sense. He makes some important points about the problems of measurements raised by Einstein's theory. These lead, most importantly, to Whitehead's own theory of gravitation, an alternative hypothesis in which the geometric structure of the universe is based on fixed a priori spatio-temporal relationships. Whitehead's theory was considered a genuine rival to general relativity until the 1970s, when empirical observations proved it to be impossible in practice. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Anna Pavlova; Translated from the Russian by A. Grey

      Paris: M. de Brunoff, 1922. First edition in English, limited issue, number 76 of 300 copies signed by the publisher, ADDITIONALLY SIGNED BY ANNA PAVLOVA on the half-title. 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.
