        Montmartre

      1922. First Edition . LASARD, Lou-Lou Albert. Montmartre. [Potsdam]: Kiepenheuer, circa 1925. Large oblong folio (24 by 19 inches), 12 lithographs, matted and loose as issued in publisher's half cloth portfolio with lithographed boards. $12,500.Rare first edition of this lovely portfolio of large original lithographs of Montmartre society in the 1920s, each one matted and signed in pencil by the artist, Lou-Lou Albert Lasard.Lou-Lou Albert Lasard was an integral member of the circle of artists known as ""Der Blaue Reiter,"" founded in Berlin by a number of Russian emigrants, including Wassily Kandinsky, Alexej von Jawlensky, Marianne von Werefkin, and native German artists, such as Franz Marc, August Macke and Gabriele Münter. From 1914-16 she was linked romantically with Rainer Maria Rilke. In 1928, she returned to Paris and was part of the Montparnasse art society, where she befriended Henri Matisse, Alberto Giacometti, and Robert Delaunay. Lasard's love for Paris and the world of variety shows is highlighted in the 12 lithographs of this exquisite portfolio. In 1925 Lasard was featured in an acclaimed exhibition in the Berlin branch of the noted Galerie Alfred Flechtheim, and the prints in this portfolio were issued in a very limited number to accompany that exhibit. In May, 1940, she and her daughter were interned by the Nazis at the Gurs concentration camp in southwestern France, but were later released. Some wear to flaps of original portfolio. Lithographs clean and fine, with bold signatures. A lovely copy in extremely good condition, rare and most desirable complete.

        Cover title:] The Four Seasons. [A Calendar & Diary with designs by Albert Rutherston.]

      1922 - SOLE EDITION, 4 full-page colour-printed illustrations by Albert Rutherston with small vignette to title-page by the same printed in blue, the text-pages with green line-border, [unpaginated], 12mo, original beige cloth with colour-printed label designed by Rutherston inset to upper board, a hint of faint foxing to endpapers, original Press advertisement laid in (a single sheet with typographic header and footer printed in red), very good. Inscribed by the artist on the flyleaf: 'For Michel, affectly Albert, Xmas 1922' - the recipient is obscure, but Michel Salaman is the outstanding candidate. The quality of the printing met with the artist's approval, and the production marked the beginning of a golden decade for the Press. A delightful little gift book, of utmost scarcity - with no other copies currently for sale, and no record on COPAC; it functioned as an advertisement (indeed it begins with a statement headed thus) for the Press's new phase under the guidance of Harold Curwen and Oliver Simon. None of its recipients could fail to be impressed by the work on show - and where in the main the blank format allows the design and printing quality to speak for itself, a small outbreak of self-promotion recurs at the close with a description of the types and decoration held at the Press and a page for telephone numbers headed by the sole printed entry of the Press's own contact details. The small flyer laid in at the front conveys the news of their occupancy of a room in St. Stephen's House, Westminster - where Oliver Simon will be found, amongst an 'ever-changing Exhibition of modern English and Foreign books'.

        Saukie and Fox Indians

      1922. BODMER, Karl. Saukie and Fox Indians. [Leipzig: Schmidt & Guenther, 1922]. Mixed engraving methods printed on mounted India tissue, plate impression measures 13-1/2 by 10-1/2 inches; window matted, entire piece measures 23 by 20 inches. $1500.Vivid Leipzig restrike of “Vignette X” from Karl Bodmer’s magnificent picture atlas produced for Maximilian Wied-Neuwied’s Travels in the Interior of North America (1839-43).Maximilian’s monumental work was originally published in German (1839-41); a French translation followed in 1840-43 and an English translation in 1843. A picture-atlas of eighty-one aquatint plates (48 folios and 33 “vignettes”) after paintings by Karl Bodmer was issued in Paris, and accompanied all three of these editions. The images provide an authentic glimpse into 19th-century America by one of the most eminent European artists. Unlike some other painters of the American West, Bodmer tried not to romanticize his subjects, but show them as they really were. “Bodmer’s watercolors are perhaps the most accurate works of art ever made of American Indians during the nineteenth century. His attention in detail to beadwork, personal symbols, clothing, accoutrements, and facial expression make these portraits precious documents of a lost world” (Robert Moore). This superb hand-colored group portrait of Saki and Fox leaders was apparently sketched by Bodmer on March 27, 1833 in St. Louis, where the Indians had come to negotiate the release of Black Hawk, a Saki chief, who had been captured the previous summer following a series of skirmishes with the U.S. Army. Maximilian described them as “stout, well formed men, many of them tall, broad shouldered, muscular and brawny. The features of the men are expressive, and strongly marked: the cheek bones prominent, the lower jaw broad and angular, and the dark brown eyes animated and fiery.” The engraving is vignette number X, restruck on India paper from the original copperplate enhanced by Johann Hürlimann and issued as the “Leipzig edition” of 1922, with the requisite three separate imprint statements and captions in German, French and English. The original plate had been engraved by Charles Vogel. Limited in number, the prints from the Leipzig edition are “more scarce than, and compare favorably to, the first edition” (David C. Hunt). Ruud, 263. See Howes M443a. Wagner-Camp 76. Streeter III:1809. Vividly hand-colored, light foxing to margins (not affecting image). A bright and handsome copy of the scarce Leipzig republication.

        Printer's advertisement for Ulysses

      1922. (BEACH, Sylvia) JOYCE, James. Printer's advertisement for Ulysses. Paris: Shakespeare and Company, circa 1931. Single printed sheet, measuring 5-1/2 by 5 inches. $13,500.Original Shakespeare and Company printer's advertisement for the works of James Joyce, annotated at length on the verso by Sylvia Beach listing the publication and availability of the first three parts of Finnegans Wake while still under the working title Works in Progress.After working seven years on Ulysses, Joyce, desperate to find a publisher, turned to Sylvia Beach of Shakespeare and Company in Paris. ""Within a month of the publication, the first printing of Ulysses was practically sold out, and within a year Joyce had become a well-known literary figure"" (de Grazia, 27). From that point forward, Beach represented Joyce and his work in nearly every capacity, "" facing down outraged critics, legal rulings and printers who refused to take on Joyce's work"" (British Library). This printer's advertisement reflects Beach's lifelong commitment to promoting Joyce's work, including through the writing of Finnegans Wake, seen here when it was still Work in Progress. The lengthy notations cover the verso and are entirely in Beach's hand: ""1st fragment of 'Work in Progress' published in New York by Crosby Gage 1928 Anna Livia Plurabelle (from part I) 650 copies all signed. 2nd fragment Tales Told of Shem & Shaun (from part II) The Black Sun Press, Paris 1929. 3rd fragment Babou & Kahane, Paris 1930 Haveth Childers Everywhere from part III. Parts I and III and a small section of part II of Work in Progress appeared in the review Transition Nos 1-8 and III to 15."" Interestingly, Finnegans Wake led to the undoing of Beach and her bookshop. Shakespeare and Company ""closed in December 1941, when a Nazi officer threatened to confiscate the stock of the bookshop if Sylvia did not sell him her only copy of the novel"" (Fitch, 393). Beach had endured a downturn in business, hiding her stock from the Nazis, the deaths of her husband and James Joyce. Ultimately, she could not endure the perversion of Joyce's legacy. This printer's advertisement represents the twilight years of Joyce's brilliant career, before he succumbed to illness and disability, when the possibilities of Finnegans Wake, still unfinished, seemed limitless and Sylvia Beach had no reason to believe her reign as the most powerful literary figure in Paris would ever end. Small repricing overlay reading ""Frs. 12"" on recto. Printed telephone number on recto crossed out with new number neatly stamped below. Two annotations in an unknown hand: [below Ulysses] ""in paper covers cloth binding"" and [below Pomes Penyeach] ""(out of print).""About-fine condition.

This set consists of all first editions in English save for Cities of the Plain, first translated in 1927, here represented by the 1929 limited edition (this copy number 767 of 2230 copies); the 1927 edition of Cities of the Plain was published in New York and is not uniform with the English editions, making this combination much preferred.

        Fregate ""La Serieuse""

      1922. VIGNY, Alfred de. La Frégate “La Sérieuse,” ou la Plainte du Capitaine. Poème. Paris: René Kieffer (Ducros, Lefèvre et Colas), (1922). Tall octavo, publisher’s deluxe full green morocco gilt, embossed cover illustration, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, uncut. $1500.Fine limited edition, number 18 of only 550 copies (one of only 50 on Japanese paper), of this melancholy poem on the fate of the French frigate “La Sérieuse,” which was dismasted and sunk by Nelson’s British fleet in the “Battle of the Nile,” with 14 illustrations (four full-page) by Pierre Falké, colored en pochoir. This copy includes a second suite of sepia illustrations bound at the rear.In January 1798 the French gathered an army and substantial fleet in the Mediterranean port of Toulon. It was apparent to the British that Napoleon planned to invade somewhere on the coast of the Mediterranean, but it was not clear where. “By Nelson’s assessment, which proved correct, Napoleon intended to take Malta and then invade the Turkish Khediveate of Egypt, providing support to Tipoo Sultan in his fight with the British in India and restoring French influence in that sub-continent. The government in London and the East India Company panicked at the prospect… Nelson’s fleet set sail for Egypt… to find Alexandria filled with French transport vessels, when the signal was flown ‘Enemy in sight.’ The search for the French Fleet was over; Nelson’s ships cleared for action” (. In the ensuing “Battle of the Nile,” engaged in Aboukir Bay, Napoleon’s Fleet was completely overwhelmed. Of its 13 ships of the line and four frigates, one ship had sunk (“La Sérieuse”), two ships were burned and nine ships captured. It was arguably one of the most decisive battles in the history of naval warfare. Illustrated by maritime specialist Pierre Falké, this poem by de Vigny memorializes that resounding loss. Bookplate. Gift inscription in pencil. Kieffer’s bookseller ticket.A fine copy, with the spine slightly toned.

        Stavrogin's Confession and The Plan of The Life of a Great Sinner.

      Richmond: Leonard & Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press,, 1922. With Introductory and Explanatory Notes. Translated by S. S. Koteliansky and Virginia Woolf. Octavo. Original blue cloth-backed blue and white patterned sides, printed paper labels to spine and front cover, top edge trimmed, others untrimmed. Light browning spine and onto sides, slight wear to edges and tips, small marginal mark to pp. 168-169, an excellent copy. First English language edition, first impression. According to printers R. & R. Clark's records, there were 750 copies produced in the first binding and 300 in the second. "Mrs Woolf did not know Russian. We taught ourselves a little Russian in order to be able to understand Koteliansky's problems in translating. The procedure was that Koteliansky translated the Russian book into very bad English in double-spaced lines, that Mrs Woolf went through the text with him, sentence by sentence, and then put the translation into good English" (Leonard Woolf). Portions of Stavrogin's Confession were published in the first issue of T. S. Eliot's Criterion, alongside Eliot's "Waste Land", in October 1922.

        Stavrogin's Confession and The Plan of The Life of a Great Sinner. With Introductory and Explanatory Notes. Translated by S. S. Koteliansky and Virginia Woolf.

      Richmond: Leonard & Virginia Woolf at the Hogarth Press, 1922 - Octavo. Original blue cloth-backed blue and white patterned sides, printed paper labels to spine and front cover, top edge trimmed, others untrimmed. Light browning spine and onto sides, slight wear to edges and tips, small marginal mark to pp. 168-169, an excellent copy. First English language edition, first impression. According to printers R. & R. Clark's records, there were 750 copies produced in the first binding and 300 in the second. "Mrs Woolf did not know Russian. We taught ourselves a little Russian in order to be able to understand Koteliansky's problems in translating. The procedure was that Koteliansky translated the Russian book into very bad English in double-spaced lines, that Mrs Woolf went through the text with him, sentence by sentence, and then put the translation into good English" (Leonard Woolf). Portions of Stavrogin's Confession were published in the first issue of T. S. Eliot's Criterion, alongside Eliot's "Waste Land", in October 1922. Kirkpatrick B2a; Willis p. 99; Woolmer 20.

        Vereinigte Pinsel-Fabriken

      Vereinigte Pinsel-Fabriken, Nurnburg 1922 - Octavo publisher's printed stiff wrapper; 81 chromolithograph plates numbered 1-75 + 6 unnumbered plates. A nice copy. Beauty in unexpected places. For years we have been devotees of chromolithograph brush catalogues. The earliest chromolitho brush catalogues we've seen (mostly European and a few English) date from ca. 1900. For obvious reasons WWII drastically reduced publications of elaborate and expensively produced catalogues. Here the Vereinigte Pinsel-Fabriken offers a wide array of brushes for artists, decorators and trademen and women, as as well brushes for domestic use (i.e. shaving brushes). At the end of the catalogue are offered some palette knives, combs, and burnishing tools. The year 1922 was at the zenith of hyperinflation of the Weimar Republic, and thus it is not surprising that the present Vereinigte catalogue is not priced (!) -- the Vereinigte Pinsel-Fabriken still operates in Nurnberg under the umbrella of Leonhardy-VP (Vereinigte Pinselfabriken).

        Places: 7 Prints from Woodblocks Designed and Engraved by Paul Nash

      William Heinemann, London 1922 - Small quarto. (10)ff. One of 55 copies printed on Japon and signed by the artist, with illustrations printed directly from the woodblock. The seven full-page plates are accompanied by "prose-illustrations" in wood-engraved text, poetically describing the places depicted in the prints. This is the first book written and illustrated by Nash, and the fifth book overall to contain his illustrations. After a stint as a soldier during the first World War, Nash worked as an official artist for the War Propaganda Bureau, and he rendered scenes in both France and England between 1917 and 1918. While visiting his father in 1921, Nash collapsed from what we now call post-traumatic stress disorder, and to aid in his recovery, he moved to the sea and began painting seascapes. Turning to the medium of the wood engraving allowed Nash to produce bolder, more abstract illustrations with roots in Surrealism; these forest scenes have a dream-like quality. He would continue this bold aesthetic in his well-received work on the Nonesuch Genesis, which appeared in 1924. An uncommon work in this most limited state (there was also an edition of 200 copies), this copy retains the publisher's binding of pictorial white boards printed in black, with a black cloth spine. Negligible soiling to covers, small, shallow bump to lower corners, else fine. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Remembrance of Things Past (Complete in 11 Volumes)

      New York: Henry Holt, Thomas Seltzer, and Albert and Charles Boni, 1922-1932. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. First American edition, first printing. Complete in eleven volumes. Original cloth with black spine labels, matching except for Cities of the Plain, which was bound in white cloth and silver and black paper as a numbered limited edition. Very Good overall, sans jackets: some volumes more edge-worn and corner-bumped than others with various degress of sunning to similar but not identically colored cloths, dulling/ chipping to labels, generally internally sound. Both volumes of Swann's Way and Cities of the Plain are near fine with contemporary matching bookplates on the paste downs of the former set, the latter has a bit of rubbing to the silver and black paper covers. Bookplate on paste down of Within a Budding Grove's second volume, a bit of gnawing along its spine edge, and rear hinge split; good only. Both volumes of The Guermantes Way well-worn along edges. The Captive has a frayed head (perhaps his captor snacked on it?). A little wrinkling to prelims of Sweet Cheat Gone.An uncommon assemblage of the first American appearances of Marcel Proust's groundbreaking novel in seven parts, issued by three US publishers over a period of ten years. All but the final volume are Brit C.K. Scott Moncrieff's translations; upon his passing the UK and US final volumes diverged in both title and translator.
