        I miceti patogeni dell'uomo e degli animali, descritti, delineati e preparati per l'osservazione al microscopio, con notizie sopra i rimedi per combatterli. Fasciculo I-X (complete).

      Bologna, L. Cappelli, 1922-1930. Ten parts in eight. Folio (28.0 x 21.8 cm). Text and 100 microscopic slides with specimens under sealed cover slips, and printed labels. Uniform dark green half cloth portfolios with gilt lettering on the front boards, and small paper label on the spines.l A complete set of a very rare publication by the Italian mycologists Gino Pollacci (1872-1963), and Arturo Nannazzi (1877-1961). Each volumes contains ten different fungi including a sample of the actual species, and a loose-leafed illustrated text describing and illustrating each fungus, also often including the fungus' pathological effect on humans and/or on cattle or other mammals, and fowl (and one, number 61, botanical). Some parts have more general text pages as well. Most illustrations are in black and white, but full colour illustrations are present too. Part V has a general index to the first five parts, Part X an index to all parts. The name of the publisher, L. Cappelli, is pasted over another name (S. Bernardino) on the title pages of the first six parts. Parts VII-VIII, and IX-X are combined in two portfolios. One board a bit rubbed, otherwise a near mint, complete set, with all the slides intact. We could trace a few complete copies in Italian libraries, but not even one elsewhere. Exceedingly rare. Not in Volbracht.

        Lettre autographe signée (1956) à François Mauriac.

      - Robbe-Grillet (Alain) (1922-2008) Écrivain et cinéaste français. Chef de file du "Nouveau Roman". Lettre autographe signée, Paris, 10 septembre 1956, à François Mauriac, 6 pages in-4. Importante et exceptionnelle lettre ouverte de Robbe Grillet en réponse à un article de François Mauriac paru dans Le Figaro Littéraire du 28 juillet 1956, « La technique du cageot ». « Au nom de quoi a-t-on décidé que le roman, le roman seul, doit ne relever que de l’inconscience, pour ne pas dire de la bêtise ou de la folie ? Même si Proust ne s’était préoccupé d’aucune règle dans son écriture (ce dont je doute fort, quant à moi), serait-ce une raison pour qu’il en soit toujours ainsi, nécessairement, pour tous les « vrais » romanciers des temps futurs ? » « Monsieur, Depuis que j’ai eu connaissance de votre article, sur la « technique du cageot », j’ai l’intention de vous écrire. Si j’ai tant tardé à le faire, c’est seulement pour apporter plus de réflexion à cette réponse, et cela particulièrement sur trois points : vous n’aimez pas qu’un romancier ait des théories concernant le roman, vous pensez que le cageot est aussi un état d’âme, enfin vous me soupçonnez de n’avoir pas assez d’estime pour mes illustres prédécesseurs, Dostoïevski, Balzac, etc Mais commençons par le commencement. C’est d’abord du plaisir, bien entendu, que j’ai ressenti à la lecture de cet article : sa place, ses dimensions, votre signature, tout cela me flattait beaucoup. Malheureusement je ne vous ai pas convaincu - pas du tout, même, semble t-il. Or, si je ne suis pas insensible au modeste plaisir de faire parler de mes écrits, c’est convaincre (vous convaincre) que précisément je souhaitais le plus. Les choses que j’ai dites me paraissaient - me paraissent encore - simples, raisonnables, évidentes même. Il faut croire que je les ai fort mal exprimées, pour n’avoir abouti qu’à votre agacement. Je me suis bien mal exprimé, en particulier si vous concluez que j’ai du « mépris » pour Dostoïevski, Balzac, etc Non ! Cent fois non ! Je n’ai pas de mépris pour eux, ni pour leurs livres, ni pour les personnages qui s’y trouvent, ni pour aucune des techniques romanesques qu’ils ont illustrées. J’ai écrit seulement (après Nathalie Sarraute et quelques autres) que ces techniques sont périmées - mais périmées aujourd’hui - et que l’on ne peut accorder la moindre importance aux romans qui prétendent utiliser maintenant l’un de ces techniques. Avons-nous, vous Monsieur, ou Le Corbusier, ou moi, du mépris pour le style ogival, lorsque nous pensons qu’il est impossible de construire en 1956 une cathédrale gothique ? Et nous savons bien, par surcroit, que cela n’implique aucune échelle de valeurs inavouée entre l’architecture du XIVe siècle et celle d’un XXe siècle qui peut-être se cherche encore. Nous estimons seulement qu’il vaut mieux un essai malheureux d’architecture contemporaine qu’une commode copie d’ancien. « Les procédés ne deviennent procédés » écrivez-vous, « que lorsque ce sont les autres qui en usent ». Nous sommes donc là-dessus du même avis : deviennent des procédés lorsque les autres essaient d’en user après coup, lorsqu’il est trop tard, lorsque la technique imitée a perdu tout contenu vivant, lorsqu’elle n’est plus qu’une forme pétrifiée, ou plus rien de vivant ne peut trouver son expression Mais la technique de Balzac était bel et bien vivante en 1840, et en 1870 celle de Dostoïevski. Ai-je tort de les aimer dans l’histoire ? Vous savez bien que c’est la seule façon de les aimer vraiment. Nous devons plutôt nous méfier des lecteurs intrépides qui dévorent avec délices Le Rouge et le Noir (après l’avoir découvert au cinéma), tout en continuant d’ignorer Faulkner, Kafka et Joyce, oui bien disant « n’y rien comprendre ». La consommation massive qui se fait aujourd’hui des chefs-d’oeuvre du passé n’est pas la preuve de leur « éternelle jeunesse ». Mais elle prouve, une fois de plus, qu’il est facile d’avaler sans danger une littérature ancienne (ou t

        Ulysses

      Paris: Shakespeare and Company,, 1922. Small quarto. Original blue wrappers, titles to cover in white. An unusually bright and fresh copy, with slight marks to spine panel and rear wrapper, tiny closed tear to wrappers at foot of spine but entirely sound, a little rubbing to tips of wrappers and spine, light crease to front wrapper and first few pages. A beautiful, unopened copy of this notoriously vulnerable production, unsophisticated and unusually bright and fresh. First edition, first printing, number 724 of 750 copies printed on vergé à barbes stock, from a total edition of 1,000 copies. Ulysses was published in imitation of the traditional three-tiered French format aimed at both connoisseurs and readers: 100 copies were printed on Dutch handmade paper and signed by Joyce; 150 large paper copies were printed on heavier vergé d'Arches, and the remaining 750 copies formed this slightly smaller format trade issue. Laid-in is a typed note signed from literary editor Burton Rascoe, on New York Herald Tribune headed paper and dated 10 October 1922, to Russell Loines, the American literary patron: "Lewis Galantière, in Paris, has sent to me a copy of 'Ulysses' to be forwarded to you. There is danger in sending it through the mails ... Please direct me". Galantière "represented the International Chamber of Commerce in Paris from 1920 till 1927, where his literary interests brought him into contact with a wide array of expatriate writers".

      Edizioni Futuriste di "Poesia" Soc. Tip. Ed. Porta. In-8° (215x152mm), pp. 15 nn. contrassegnate alfabeticamente dalla A alla Q, 180, (2), brossura editoriale a stampa rossa e nera. Ottima copia in barbe. Prima edizione, rara, di questo romanzo parolibero marinettiano. Le piacentine "Edizioni futuriste" Porta, dirette da Marinetti e da Mario Carli, esordirono con Trillirì dello stesso Carli nel medesimo 1921, per poi pubblicare soltanto più questo titolo di Marinetti. Salaris, p. 48. Dizionario del Futurismo, p. 704: "Nel 1921 Marinetti lancia il manifesto Il Tattilismo che plaude alla realizzazione d'una nuova forma d'arte-vita che permetta di migliorare i rapporti tra gli individui e favorisca la comuicazione del pensiero attraverso il tatto. In questa fase il futurismo s'avvia a percorrere una crisi così profonda da sembrar prossimo alla disgregazione totale. Le opere che maggiormente rispettano questa temperie, ma anche lo stato di Marinetti in tali frangenti, sono Il tamburo di fuoco (Milano, 1922), e il romanzo allegorico Gli indomabili (Piacenza, 1922.)".

        [FIRST EXHIBITION OF THE 16 ART GROUP] Vystavka kartin shestnadtsati khudozhnikov: Catalogue [i e Art Exhibition of 16 Artists: Catalogue]

      Petrograd: Pechatnyi dvor, 1922. 12 pp. 15x11 cm. Issued without wrappers. With pencil markings on the first and last pages, Soviet bookshop's stamps on the p.12. Otherwise near fine. Extremely rare ephemera. One of 1000 copies. This art show opened in Petrograd (St. Petersburg) with 180 works by art group called «Sixteen» (16) consisted of 16 artists: Belkin, Bobrovsky, Bobyshev, Brodsky, Voinov, Il'in, Kudriavtsev, Lakhovsky, Naumov, Okolovich, Rudnev, Rylov, Savinov, Sychiov, Feshin, Shillingovsky. Interesting that mostly all of them had address printed next to their names in the catalogue. This is a great historical evidence of St. Petersburg-Petrograd art exhibitions traditionally performed not only cultural and educational function, but also were the place where the buyer got acquainted with new works and agreed on the acquisition of paintings. Acting in Petrograd, the artists' societies were essentially exhibition associations with a more or less constant circle of exhibitors. Another strange thing about this catalogue is a lack of uniformity, almost like every artist provided whatever information he wanted to (dates, or techniques, or current owner, or name of the series). Two artists didn't even exhibit with a note «works were not delivered for reasons beyond artist's control». A very curious little catalogue as an evidence of tough and changing times for art (e.g., the last year of famous Peredvizniki's group) in a new Russia after the revolution and war. Art exhibitions of Petrograd during the post-revolutionary period reflected changes in society and art, attempts of the authorities to include fine art in the system of state relations, accompanied by a struggle of opinions and the presence of polar views on the main issues of cultural policy.

"Descriptions of society, life and the advanced technology on Mars...

        Das Graphische Werk. Introduction text by Arthur Roessler.

      Vienna: Rikola Verlag, 1922 - Each of the prints presented in a dark grey stained frame with conservation mount and glass. 4 drypoint etchings on heavy rough yellowish etching paper, 2 drypoint etchings on Massimilianico Bütten paper and 2 crayon stone lithographs on rag paper. Varying sheet sizes: Smallest 16.7 x 14 cm, largest 66 x 48 cm. Together with the title page and introduction text housed in a portfolio. Edition of 80. Numbered on the title page. Portrait of a Man, Self-Portrait, Portrait of Franz Hauer, Squatting Woman, Sorrow, Portrait of Arthur Roessler were etched by Schiele in 1914, Portrait of Paris von Gütersloh and Girl were drawn on the stone in 1918. In 1921, Otto Nirenstein, founder of the Verlag Neuer Graphik, the fine arts division of Rikola Verlag acquired the remaining unsold lithograph impressions and all of Schiele's original etching plates, including the rights to publish them. In 1922, Rikola Verlag published the portfolio which had an edition size of 80 as this was the number of available impressions of the two lithographs which could no longer be reprinted as the stones had since been destroyed, together with newly pulled impressions from the etching plates. The plates are now privately owned and are well protected against uncontrolled use. Jane Kallir's raisonne on Schiele states that some of these prints were rubber stamped with Schiele's signature on the verso and some were not, ours are not stamped. We have also seen a set stamped on the recto. Only 4 of Scheile's 17 prints, which include stone lithographs, drypoint etchings, rubbercuts and woodcuts were published in edition form in Schiele's lifetime, none of which appear in this portfolio. Single lifetime impressions do exist but are extremely rare. Kallir 3b, 4b, 5b, 6b, 7b, 8b, 16b, 17b

        Gli indomabili

      Edizioni Futuriste di "Poesia" Soc. Tip. Ed. Porta, Piacenza 1922 - In-8° (215x152mm), pp. 15 nn. contrassegnate alfabeticamente dalla A alla Q, 180, (2), brossura editoriale a stampa rossa e nera. Ottima copia in barbe. Prima edizione, rara, di questo romanzo parolibero marinettiano. Le piacentine Edizioni futuriste Porta, dirette da Marinetti e da Mario Carli, esordirono con Trillirì dello stesso Carli nel medesimo 1921, per poi pubblicare soltanto più questo titolo di Marinetti. Salaris, p. 48. Dizionario del Futurismo, p. 704: Nel 1921 Marinetti lancia il manifesto Il Tattilismo che plaude alla realizzazione d'una nuova forma d'arte-vita che permetta di migliorare i rapporti tra gli individui e favorisca la comuicazione del pensiero attraverso il tatto. In questa fase il futurismo s'avvia a percorrere una crisi così profonda da sembrar prossimo alla disgregazione totale. Le opere che maggiormente rispettano questa temperie, ma anche lo stato di Marinetti in tali frangenti, sono Il tamburo di fuoco (Milano, 1922), e il romanzo allegorico Gli indomabili (Piacenza, 1922.). Cammarota, Marinetti, 95: Raro. Spaducci, p. 176. Gambetti / Vezzosi, p. 518. Italiano [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Indian Utensils and Arms

      Schmidt and Guenther, [Leipzig 1922 - Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by A. Zschokke and Hürlimann after Bodmer. 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 ethnographical record centering on Bodmer's careful drawing of a buffalo robe decorated by the Mandan Chief Mató-Tópe with a depiction of several of his exploits including a hand-to-hand battle with a Cheyenne Chief (the original was purchased by Prince Maximilian and is now in the Linden-Museum in Stuttgart, Germany). Surrounding the robe are various other objects, including a pipe that had belonged to Dipäuch, a respected elder of the Mandan Tribe, as well as a snow-shoe, a fashioned ermine skin and a knife in a bead-fringed scabbard. 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. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Codex Sinaiticus Petropolitanus Et Friderico-Augustanus Lipsiensis: The Old Testament Only

      The Clarendon Press, Oxford 1922 - Elephant Folio. xxiii(i) (Text), 245 leaves printed on both sides, blank, 2 foldout index leaves. 34 loose signatures housed in a portfolio box with brown cloth-tape edges over paper-covered boards and printed label on front cover. Old Testament only.This monumental facsimile edition provides a lifelike view of the original pages of the Codex Sinaiticus. The Codex was handwritten in Greek by 4th-century scribes, only 300 years after the time of the New Testament, making it one of the earliest and most reliable witnesses to the biblical text. It contained the Old and New Testaments in Greek, the text adopted by early Greek-speaking Christians. The Codex was preserved for centuries at the monastery of St. Catherine's, Mount Sinai, until Constantin von Tischendorf discovered the manuscript and drew worldwide attention and notoriety to it in 1844. In the years following, its pages were divided and dispersed. Each page contains four columns of text (except the OT poetic books, which have only two columns), the only biblical manuscript to use this format. Written on fine vellum, 390 leaves were discovered by Tischendorf, though it originally must have contained more than 730. Most of the missing leaves are from the OT, with the majority of Genesis - 1 Chronicles now missing. A substantial portion of 1 Chronicles curiously appears in the middle of Esdras B (= Hebrew Ezra-Nehemiah), probably as a result of a misplaced quire in the exemplar. The remaining historical books (in the LXX order) are intact, concluding with 1 and 4 Maccabees. The major and minor prophets follow, with a lacuna of probably 56 leaves from the middle of Lamentations to the end of Micah, which presumably followed Hosea and Amos. The rest of the minor prophets are followed by the usual poetical and wisdom books, concluding with Job. The text of the OT reflects the Old Greek (where it has been determined), though it is inferior to Vaticanus in most books. The original provenance of the codex is debatable, but the two most likely contenders seem to be Egypt and Caesarea. It was certainly present in the library at Caesarea sometime between the fifth and seventh centuries, where it was corrected at one point against a manuscript that had been corrected against the original Hexapla of Origen by the martyr Pamphilius.Some wear along edges of box, small chips, creasing of tape and small library sticker and handwritten title on spine. Light smudging of label on front, small scuff on back cover of box. Exlibris of A. Pascalis on inside front cover of box. Blank page of fist text signature age toned and the last thirteen signatures bumped at upper right corner. Box in overall good+, interior in very good to near fine condition. "Kirsopp Lake (1872-1946) was a British biblical and patristic scholar and textual critic. He was born in Southampton, England, and died in South Pasadena, California. He was ordained into the Church of England and was curate of St. Mary the Virgin (Oxford, England) from 1897 to 1904, and was then a professor of early Christian literature at the University of Leiden until 1913. After 1914 he was a professor of early Christian literature at Harvard University. In 1919 he was appointed to a Harvard chair as Winn Professor of Ecclesiastical History. He retired from Harvard in 1938. Lake was interested in archaeology and participated in many expeditions to the Near East. He visited Mount Sinai, Mount Athos, Turkey and Iraq. His excavations were cut short by World War II. In the early twentieth century, Lake discovered a textual family of New Testament manuscripts known as Family 1 (also known as Lake group). He also examined textual family Family II, and compared its text with text Codex Alexandrinus. Lake married his second wife, Silva New in 1932. Born in 1898, she was an accomplished scholar in her own right, and was a professor of Classics at Bryn Mawr College." (Harvard University Library) He is probably best known for the massive five-volume work T [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        50 HANDZEICHNUNGEN. MIT EINEM VORWORT VON HERMANN BAHR.

      Leipzig and Vienna: Thyrsos-Verlag, 1922. Beautifully preserved portfolio of fifty delicate lithographs printed from line drawings by Gustav Klimt with a foreword by the Austrian writer, Hermann Bahr. Klimt is best known for his richly ornamental romantic oil paintings magnificently adorned with warm colours heightened by gilt detailing, however, these lithographs reveal him as a master of spare and purposeful design. Stripped of embellishment, the lithographs have a haunting, sometimes necrotic quality, both unsettling and alluring. Many are erotic in nature, reinforcing an age-old confluence of death and sexual desire. Throughout Klimt remains a confident apostle of his disquieting yet undeniably unique style, blending purposeful anatomical configuration with an intangible metaphysical agenda. Original folding portfolio case, 8 page letterpress introduction incorporating title-page and limitation leaf, loose plates; decorative front board printed in gilt, vellum backstrip, excellent condition.
