        A Manual for the Study of the Human Voice; Exercises and Practices for the Speaking and Singing Voice [fourth edition. COMPLETE in 30 lessons. WITH personalized letters from the author]

      Perfect Voice Institute, Chicago, IL 1922 - The complete manual in 30 Lessons numbered I through XXX, plus the 16 page Reference Outline and Table of Lesson Contents of the Manual. Fourth edition, 1922. Each booklet is saddle stapled and has three perforations for binder insertion. There is no binder; there is a box with remnants of Perfect Voice Institute label of which the seams of the lid are split at corners and the box too thin to hold all 30 lessons. AS WELL, included are the letters the student received from Eugene Feuchtinger between 7 November 1924 and 8 May 1925. This lot consists of five "lesson letters" and two others. 14 leaves, with the first leaf of each letter on Perfect Voice Institute letterhead. Of the seven letters, six are addressed using the student's name, the other one simply headed "My Dear Student". Each of the letters has Feuchtinger's signature in green ink. It is my impression that six of the signatures are from a rubber stamp but that one is authentic. The small sheet with the student's file number is fastened to the first letter; the Rules of the institute, on green paper, are anchored with a brass tab to the letters - this tab is removable. A similar tab is holding Lessons XV through XXV together by the topmost perforation - this too is of course removable. An uncommon archive. Please inquire for any further clarification, and for overses shipping options. Size: 8vo. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        [Op. 7]. Georg Büchners Wozzeck Oper in 3 Akten (15 Szenen)... Op. 7 Klavierauszug von Fritz Heinrich Klein. [Piano-vocal score]

      [Vienna]: Eigentum des Komponisten [=self-published] [PN AB4], 1922. Rare. First Edition, first issue. The overpastes by Universal-Edition were most probably added in April 1923, when the publisher acquired the rights and Berg ordered the printer, Waldheim-Eberle, to transfer all remaining copies to Universal. The first issue by Universal, using the same plates but with new plate number U.E. 7382 and new title, was released in 1926.The arranger of the edition, Fritz Heinrich Klein (1892-1977), was a student of Berg. The publication of the piano-vocal score was made possible by the financial support of Alma Mahler; hence, the dedication. Georg Büchner's (1813-1837) fragmentary drama Woyzeck [not "Wozzeck"] was written in 1836, but it remained unpublished until 1879 and did not see the stage before Max Reinhardt produced it in Munich in 1913. Its Viennese premiere, in 1914, prompted Berg to compose his opera—the first atonal opera in history and arguably the most successful one to this day."Wozzeck was an epoch-making work that broke new ground musically, emotionally and dramatically. If Büchner's play was discovered and first performed at a time when its techniques and concerns seemed strikingly contemporary, it also appeared at a moment when its extreme states were peculiarly suited to Berg's musical language - an atonal language that, constantly hovering on the edge of tonal confirmation, becomes a perfect musical metaphor for the emotional and mental state of the opera's chief protagonist. The world that the opera presents is a projection of the tortured mind of Wozzeck himself: a world without normality or humanity and peopled by grotesques, a haunted world of strange, hallucinatory voices and visions and of natural phenomena indifferent to the human tragedy being played out." Douglas Jarman in Grove online. Folio. Full dark green cloth with upper wrapper laid down to upper board, spine with titling gilt.v1f. (title), 1f. (dedication in facsimile of Berg's handwriting: "Alma Maria Mahler zugeeignet"), 5 ("Szenarium" [table of contents]), [i] (list of orchestral instruments), [i] (cast list), 8 (instructions for performing the Sprechstimme), [9]-231 (music), [i] (printer's note: "Gestochen und gedruckt von der Waldheim-Eberle A.G. Wien") pp. Printed photographically from engraved plates. Plate numbers flush with outer edge on pages with footnotes or ossias; shortened to "B4" on p. 182.With "Universal-Edition A.G. Wien... Leipzig U.E. Nr. 7382" overpaste to title and upper wrapper.Binding slightly rubbed and bumped; upper wrapper slightly worn, stained and creased; lower wrapper lacking. Minor wear and soiling throughout; corners of first and last leaves slightly turned; final leaves dampstained at lower outer portion. Quite a good copy overall.

First edition. "Collection of nine weird and science-fictional tales, eccentric in manner and slightly amateurish, though with imaginative ideas. The author was evidently a professional engineer and published a number of nonfictional works on that subject, ensuring authentic 'local color' for these stories, all of which involve an intersection between the mechanical and the occult. The illustrations are quite professional and atmospheric. An admirably oddball collection." - Robert Eldridge. Day, The Supplemental Checklist of Fantastic Literature, p. 58.

        Slovinske umeni (Slovenian Art)

      Hodonin: Sdruzenych vytvarnych umelcu moravskych 1922 - Large quarto, wrappers, 21 plates, 32pp (vi)pp. Cover is an unattributed original abstract woodcut, probably by Jakac. Very rare survey of Slovenian modern art, with essays and statements by Slovenian artists and writers, in Czech. France Stele’s essay on modernism in Slovenia is from a manuscript; Cankar’s was from his book OBISKI, and a second essay from an manuscript; there are three other written essays, one of which was written specifically for this publication, which accompanied an exhibition in Hodonin in 1922. Due to the indifferent response and reactionary climate and eventual suppression of any avant-garde or groundbreaking expression in that part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats & Slovenes, very little was published there about the new art. Branko Poljanski had published an only issue of Svetokrat in Ljubljana in 1921 without success, and the Dadaist exhibitions and publications of 1925-6 were met with violent suppression. However, the Czechs proved to be more receptive, as indicated by the show in Moravia with this book and as well as an issue of Veraikon dedicated to the Slovene expressionists in the same year.Works by Veno Pilon, Tratnik, Jakac, Kralj, Smrekar, Grohar, Jakopik and others are displayed, with essays on their work and statements by the artists. Condition very good, a crisp copy; one text page has a repaired tear. This publication was a special offering in the third year of the journal Umelecky list. The original article there was only 9 pages. Rare: no copies found of this publication in North American libraries. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Di questa ricercata e importante rivista dl carattere letterario, offriamo "tutto il pubblicato": dal 1922 (n. 1, maggio) al 1923, per complessivi 10 numeri in 7 fascicoli, di pp. 32 (+ i fogli colorati con varia pubblicità) e con Illustrazioni f.t. di Casorati, Galante, Chessa. Gli ultimi due fascicoli (nn. 7-8 e 9-10, senza data, sono del 1923) e furono stampati dalla Tipografia Sociale di Pinerolo. "Primo tempo" venne fondato a Torino sotto la direzione di Giacomo Debenedetti, Mario Gromo, Emanuele F. Sacerdote, Sergio Solmi. D'ispirazione crociana la rivista conteneva contributi critici e letterari. Tra i critici: Natalino Sapegno, Attilio Momigliano, Mario Fubini, Corrado Govoni. Efficace fu il suo contributo nel campo dell'allora giovane poesia. Fra le sue pagine troviamo le prime composizioni di Eugenio Montale ("Riviere" e "Accordi"), i canti di Umberto Saba (la raccolta "Preludio e canzonette" è ospitata nel n. 3, a lui dedicato), di Camillo Sbarbaro (vari componimenti fra cui "Delli ammaestramenti a Polidoro"), di Giuseppe Ungaretti ("Le stagioni" - "Alla noia") e anche prose di Emilio Cecchi, Max Ascoli, Carlo Linati. Cfr. Diz. Autori Italiani Contemporanei, II, p. 1082. Solo tracce d'uso alle brossure, altrimenti tutta la collezione, pressochè intonsa, è ben conservata. Molto raro trovarla completa.

        Remembrance of Things Past (Complete in 11 Volumes)

      Henry Holt, Thomas Seltzer, and Albert and Charles Boni 1922 - 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        PRIMO TEMPO. Rivista letteraria mensile.

      Torino, Officina Tipografica di C. Valentino e C., 1922-1923. In-8 gr. (mm. 248x172), brossura orig. Di questa ricercata e importante rivista dl carattere letterario, offriamo "tutto il pubblicato": dal 1922 (n. 1, maggio) al 1923, per complessivi 10 numeri in 7 fascicoli, di pp. 32 (+ i fogli colorati con varia pubblicità) e con Illustrazioni f.t. di Casorati, Galante, Chessa. Gli ultimi due fascicoli (nn. 7-8 e 9-10, senza data, sono del 1923) e furono stampati dalla Tipografia Sociale di Pinerolo. "Primo tempo" venne fondato a Torino sotto la direzione di Giacomo Debenedetti, Mario Gromo, Emanuele F. Sacerdote, Sergio Solmi. D'ispirazione crociana la rivista conteneva contributi critici e letterari. Tra i critici: Natalino Sapegno, Attilio Momigliano, Mario Fubini, Corrado Govoni. Efficace fu il suo contributo nel campo dell'allora giovane poesia. Fra le sue pagine troviamo le prime composizioni di Eugenio Montale (”Riviere” e “Accordi”), i canti di Umberto Saba (la raccolta “Preludio e canzonette” è ospitata nel n. 3, a lui dedicato), di Camillo Sbarbaro (vari componimenti fra cui “Delli ammaestramenti a Polidoro”), di Giuseppe Ungaretti (”Le stagioni” - “Alla noia”) e anche prose di Emilio Cecchi, Max Ascoli, Carlo Linati. Cfr. Diz. Autori Italiani Contemporanei, II, p. 1082. Solo tracce d'uso alle brossure, altrimenti tutta la collezione, pressochè intonsa, è ben conservata. Molto raro trovarla completa.
