        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]

      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.

        Alexandria: A History and A Guide.

      Alexandria: Whitehead Morris Limited, 1922 - Octavo. Original buff paper boards, titles to spine and front board in black. Spine rolled and sunned, front joint and rear inner hinge skilfully repaired, front board slightly marked, with small bump to top edge, commensurate section of rubbing to rear board, front free endpaper browned, half-title slightly marked. A very good copy. Engraved frontispiece, 16 engraved maps and plans to the text, double-page genealogical table, 2 folding maps, coloured folding map in pocket on rear pastedown. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by Forster "AJB, from the author" on the front free endpaper, and with the ownership inscription of the recipient, A. J. Butler, on the front board. This is Oxford historian Alfred Joshua Butler (1850–1936), whose work The Arab Conquest of Egypt (1902) Forster cites as his main source for the period, and describes it as "a monograph of the highest merit, brilliantly written, and practically reconstructing the episode" (p. iii). He also acknowledges Butler's Ancient Coptic Churches (1884) as his source for the passage on the monasteries of Natrun, and reproduces two of his plans at pages 202 and 203. Butler appears to have then used the guide for his own purposes, the section on the Greco-Roman Museum (pp. 107–21), bearing his inked underlinings and marginal summaries of the exhibits described by Forster. Copies of the first edition are rare, as most of the print run was destroyed by fire. Kirkpatrick A8a. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
