        John Pierpont Morgan Signed Proxy At Jeckyl Island.

      , 1923. 1923. A proxy boldly signed by John Pierpont Morgan, Jr. as a shareholder and appointing five men as his proxies, who were George F. Baker, Walter B. James, Edward S. Harkness, Robert S. Brewster, and R.T. Crane, Jr., at the Annual Meeting of the Shareholders of Jekyl Island Club." Double matted and framed, with a photograph of Morgan. The entire piece measures 13.25 inches by 17.25 inches. Rare and desirable. Created in 1885, the Jekyll Island Club, limited to 100 individuals in order to maintain exclusivity, counted among its members newspaper tycoon Joseph Pulitzer, department store magnate Marshall Field, railroad heir and philanthropist William K. Vanderbilt, Equitable Life Insurance founder Henry Hyde, and banker and financier J. Pierpont Morgan. Famously, it was at the elite club in November 1910 that a committee of senators, bankers and treasury officials secretly met to draft legislation to create the U.S. Federal Reserve. The Jekyll Island Club declined during the Great Depression and, despite a restructuring of membership fees, closed during World War II.

        Trest D. E. Istoriia gibeli Evropy [Trust D. E. A History of the Demise of Europe]

      Gelikon, Berlin 1923 - First Edition. Octavo (23 × 16 cm). Original pictorial wrappers by Vladimir Konstantinovsky; 196 pp. Rear wrapper beginning to detach; light wear and a few nicks to overlapping wrapper edges; a fragile title, but still about very good. First edition of Erenburg's dystopian novel about the destruction of Europe by a disillusioned immigrant to America, who sets in motion a plan to gradually exterminate the continent. A vivid expression of Erenburg's "hatred for the mercantile European society based on success, money, and egotism" (Kolesnikoff, 76). A Soviet writer, journalist, and translator who spent much of the 1920-30s in Western Europe, Erenburg (1891-1967) maintained close ties to émigré circles, avant-garde artists, and left-leaning writers while serving as a Soviet press correspondent. His novel The Thaw (Ottepel', 1954) would lend its name to the period of "De-Stalinization" under Khrushchev. He was the most frequently published author of Gelikon, a publishing house founded by Abram Vishniak which specialized in contemporary literature by writers such as Andrei Bely, Marina Tsvetaeva, and Viktor Shklovsky. Scarce in the trade, especially in the original pictorial wrappers by Vladimir Konstantinovsky. His motif was used in 1924 by Karel Teige and Otakar Mrkvicka for the front wrapper of the Czech translation. With additional typographic elements used on the page layout. Getty 162. This unique copy was handled by the legendary Paris collector and book dealer Andrei Savine, who specialized in Russian emigre publications in the 1970-90s; the binding may likewise be by him. His price, which corresponds to the record digitized by UNC Chapel Hill, is written in pencil on the rear fly leaf: "1500,-." It apparently passed through Savine's shop in 1985 and appears to be the only copy of this title he sold. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Photograph album documenting two itinerant roughnecks' travel through New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio until they found jobs at the Woodville Oil Field

      New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio, 1923. Album. Very good. This 8" x 6" album contains 37 b/w photographs, each measuring approximately 4.75" x 3". The crisp, well-composed snapshots are chronologically arranged and neatly glued to the album pages. Most have been captioned in white, but much of the writing has faded. The images show the men's Model T Ford, roadside tent camping, and a big campsite at Cleveland's Euclid Beach Park, as well as the rugged equipment, workmen, and the environment of a 1920s oil field. Ohio became home to one of the first oil booms in the United States in the 1860s after a blacksmith, William Jeffrey, drilled a successful well in Trumbull County. The discovery of oil near Woodville in 1892 started a boom that lasted until 1905 by which time the area was mostly drained although drilling and pumping continued in a few of the area's fields. A historically valuable visual record of life as a traveling roughneck in the eastern oil fields. Rather scarce. As of 2017, no other Ohio oil field photograph albums are for sale in the trade. There are no auction records for similar materials listed at ABPC or the Rare Book Hub. OCLC shows no similar albums held in institutional collections.

In quite good condition overall. Pitcher (most commonly referred to as Wilhelm) worked as a set and costume designer for ballets, pantomimes, comic operas, musical comedies, and Shakespearian and other theatrical productions. He is perhaps best-known for his work for the Empire Theatre in London from 1887 to 1915, where he designed both sets and costumes for numerous ballets, many of which starred Adeline Genée (she performed the skirt dance at the Empire Theatre in 1899 in "Round the Town Again"). He also contributed a number of articles to The Magazine of Art, including one entitled "Art in Ballet" in 1895. "Wilhelm was one of the most prolific stage designers of his day. For 20 years before World War I he was (in all but name) artistic director of ballet at the Empire Theatre, London. He wrote the scenarios and co-ordinated choreography, music and design into a coherent whole, ahead of similar concepts by the great choreographer Michael Fokine at the Diaghilev ballet. Wilhelm had great taste and his costumes were designed with strong attention to detail. His designs seem superficially charming, but are actually very practical, perfectly depicting in watercolour the fabrics he wanted the makers to use as well as indicating the character for which the design was intended." Website of the Victoria and Albert Museum"The Empire Theatre was the center for Victorian ballet. William John Charles Pitcher, known as C. Wilhelm, played an important role at the Empire from 1887 to 1915 as librettist and designer of costumes and settings. His costume designs were imaginative adaptations of historical costumes, descriptive representations of material objects, and detailed conceptions executed in soft and delicate tonalities. Many of Wilhelm's sketches have survived and thus are able to serve as a documentation of the period's social aesthetic." Eras of the Dance p. 54.

        Pierre Or, The Ambiguities

      London: Constable, 1923. Limited Edition. Decorative Cloth. Fine-. The first publication of one of Herman Melville's most enigmatic works since the second printing of 1855. Tall, thick 8vo: viii,505,[1]pp. Publisher's slate-blue cloth, spine and covers paneled in blind, spine lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, fore- and bottom edges rough-cut, coated maroon end papers, title page in French blue and black. Subscription card for Constable's Monthly List laid in. About Fine (page margins tone), a superb copy, binding square and tight, pages clean and crisp. BAL 13680. Volume IX of the 16-volume Works of Herman Melville, Standard Edition, publication of which (in an edition of only 750 copies) marked a key event (along with publication of Raymond Weaver's 1921 biography, Herman Melville: Man, Mariner and Mystic) in the Melville revival of the 1920s, which rescued the neglected writer from obscurity and secured him a prominent place in the American literary canon. "Pierre is the most controversial of Herman Melville's novels. The work was condemned by contemporary reviewers, and readers since then have had difficulty in understanding the book and in determining Melville's intent. Critics still differ widely, with some regarding Pierre as a failure and others praising it as Melville's masterpiece. . . . The entire novel is riddled with contradictions and puzzles, so it is well to remember its subtitle-The Ambiguities." (enotes) N. B.

Tenschert (Pressendrucke) I, 25 -27. OCLC 62245605. Vergl. Martin Hutner und Jerry Kelly in: "A Century for the Century: Fine Printed Books from 1900 to 1999": "12. Bremer Presse; Munich, Germany, 1923 - 1924 Homer - Iliad and Odyssey. Willy Wiegand designed a distinctive Greek type for his Bremer Presse publication of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey. The type has a degree of movement, letter strokes tilting left and right so that one almost senses a scribal hand. The end margins are generous, and the line count, slightly indented below each block of text, acts as a visual tab for moving on to the next page. Impeccably printed on a beautiful cream Zanders handmade paper, page after page of Homer's epic sweeps along in majestic procession, enabling even those unable to read the language to sense its narrative flow. The timelessness and simplicity of design are classic." "Haec Iliadis [Odysseae] editio ex Edvardi Schwartz recensione studio et impensis officinae Bremensis quae est ad Monachos adhibitis typis quorum forma nunc primum inuenta et excusa est, prelo quod manuum labore mouetur imprimebatur anno millesimo nongentesimo uicesimo tertio [quarto], exemplaria sunt emissa sescenta quindecim quorum hoc habet numerum cccclxxxii". Hier aLso die Exemplare 482 von 615. Die meisten der Kollationen der Kollegen und Bibliographen sind nicht korrekt, sie differieren für die Ilias zwischen 488 und 500 Seiten, die Odyssee zwischen 372 und 386 Seiten, Zählfehler, die sich tradieren? Unsere Kollation ist korrekt und gibt den tatsächlichen Zustand wieder, unsere beiden Bände sind jedenfalls absolut vollständig, wie auch die Lagenkollation und die fortlaufenden Zeilennummern beweisen, es sind nach unserer oben angegebener Kollation berechnet also insgesamt 500 bzw. 392 Seiten! Die Graeca der Homer-Type wurde 1926 auch noch für den Prometheus (Lehnacker 20) verwendet. Die beiden Homer-Texte wurden von Schwartz speziell für diese Ausgaben konstituiert und haben ihren "eigenen Rang, so Uta Heil und Annette von Stockhausen, in Anmerkung 130 (Berlin, de Gruyer 2015) in: "Crux interpretum: Ein kritischer Rückblick auf das Werk von Eduard Schwartz".

Die Rücken stark aufgehellt und fleckig, die Titelschilder auf den Rücken mit Alters- und Gebrauchsspuren, auch die Deckel nicht mehr neuwertig. Allseitig unbeschnitten weisen die eingehefteten Rohbögen einzig an den Köpfen leichte Bräunungen und Flecken auf, was durch sanftes beschneiden und aufbringen eines Gold- oder Farbschnittes leicht behoben werden kann.

      Italy, 1923. Near Fine. Oblong octavo. Black cloth over paper boards measuring 5.5" x 7.5" with "photographs" stamped in gilt on the front cover. A collection of 93 sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring around 3" x 4" with captions. Album is near fine with near fine or better photographs.A photo album kept by a woman while traveling in Europe in 1910. The album shows a group of well-to-do women in a tour group around Europe, beginning with their ocean liner trip overseas in September of 1910 on the S.S. Oceania, Italian Line. They started in Naples, went on a "drive" in a horse and carriage, visited the National Museum, and the volcano, Solfatara. They followed this with a trip to Pompeii with photos of well-dressed women walking through the ancient ruins of the city, complete with fancy hats and the occasional parasol. The company eventually traveled to Rome and Venice with photos of the women in gondolas and posing in Saint Mark's square. Continuing on their excursion they visited Paris, Germany, and Switzerland. The photos include a carriage ride to Versailles, the ruins of Heidelberg Castle, and wonderful views of the Alps. On the return trip they stopped in England and watched the guards at St. James' Palace. The final section of photographs is from travels in the United States between 1922 and 1924 as well as a few family snapshots. They include a car journey to the Berkshires, visiting the Hotel Aspinwall in Lenox, Masschusettes, and a zoo in Chevy Chase, Maryland. The photos show women posing around their car, taking silly candid photos, and lounging on rocks and trees in various outdoor settings.A modest but interesting collection of a women's tour group.

        Portrait

      1923 - ROBERT KOHL, Wien 1891 - 1944 KZ Blechhammer, Aquarell, Rechts oben signiert, datiert und gewidmet: "Zum 10.VI.23 für Emmy Brasch in Verehrung. Robert Kohl" Größe: 44,8 x 31 cm Rückseitig eine Portraitskizze in Bleistift Farbfrisch, leicht Stockfleckig, außerhalb der Darstellung am rechten Rand Papierverlust, sowie ehemalige Montierungsspuren , am rechten Rand Quetschfalte, Papier an den Rändern leicht wellig.(siehe Fotos). Robert Kohl wurde 1891 in Wien geboren. Er Kurse an der Wiener Kunstgewerbeschule. 1912 bis 1913 studierte er an der Prager Kunstakademie. Vor Kohls Einberufung zum Kriegsdienst 1916 und in den ersten Jahren nach dem Krieg war der Künstler vor allem als Buchillustrator für Verlage in Leipzig und München tätig. Zu Beginn der 1920er-Jahre verlagerte sich das Hauptgewicht seiner künstlerischen Produktion auf die Malerei. Es entstanden Stillleben – insbesondere Blumenbilder –, Landschaften, Figurenbilder und Porträts, die im Hagenbund und im Wiener Künstlerhaus ausgestellt wurden. Druckgrafiken, Aquarelle und Zeichnungen befinden sich unter anderem im Besitz der Wiener Albertina, in der Graphischen Sammlung Leipzig sowie im Wien Museum. 1938 emigrierte Robert Kohl nach Paris. Drei große Kisten mit Ölbildern, Aquarellen und Zeichnungen, die ihm seine Frau zu Ausstellungszwecken nach Paris sandte, gingen bei Ausbruch des Krieges verloren. Kurz vor seiner weiteren Emigration in die USA wurde Robert Kohl von Gefolgsleuten der Vichy-Regierung an die Gestapo ausgeliefert und dann nach Blechhammer überstellt, wo er verstarb.

A very good copy with bright plates. First edition in English, number 64 of 1,000 copies, of which 500 were for distribution in the USA; first published in French by Brunoff, Paris, 1922. Sergei Diaghilev's Ballet Russes production of the Sleeping Beauty, for which Leon Bakst designed the costumes and set, was first staged in London in 1921 at the Alhambra Theatre, as "The Sleeping Princess". Bakst's designs were a significant contribution to the modern art movement, as much as to theatre or costume design, and the expense of realising them nearly bankrupted Diaghilev.
