        Im Café. Lithographie.

      1923 - Signiert "Rudolf Schlichter". Druck auf Bütten. Söhn HDO 72716-7. Eines von 125 Exemplaren. Blatt 7 aus: Die Schaffenden, IV. Jahrgang, 4. Mappe, 1923. Erschienen im Euphorion Verlag, Berlin. - Der deutsche Künstler Rudolf Schlichter gilt als einer der wichtigsten Vertreter der Neuen Sachlichkeit. Schlichter studierte an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Stuttgart und an der Kunstakademie in Karlsruhe, u. a. bei Wilhelm Trübner und Hans Thoma. Schlichter unternahm mehrfach Studienreisen nach Italien und Frankreich und bekam durch seinen Malerkollegen Julius Kasper Kontakt zur Unterwelt. In Karlsruhe gehörte er zu den Mitbegründern der Gruppe Rih, übersiedelte dann nach Berlin, wo er sich der Novembergruppe, der Berliner Secession, den Berliner Dadaisten und der KPD anschloss. In den frühen 20er Jahren erschienen viele Buchillustrationen Schlichters. Sein Freundes- und Bekanntenkreis reichte von Bertolt Brecht, Sternberg, Alfred Döblin und Grosz bis hin zu Carl Zuckmayer, den er schon in Karlsruhe kennengelernt hatte. 1925 waren Werke Schlichters in der Ausstellung Neue Sachlichkeit in Mannheim zu sehen. Zwei Jahre später lernte er seine spätere Frau Elfriede Elisabeth Koehler, kennen und begann sich von der Politik abzukehren und dem Katholizismus zuzuwenden. Zu seinen Bekannten zählten nun Ernst von Salomon und die Brüder Ernst Jünger und Friedrich Georg Jünger. Unter den Nationalsozialisten wurden viele seiner Werke aus Museen entfernt und Schlichter wurde mit einem Arbeitsverbot belegt. Im Jahr 1939 zog Schlichter nach München, wo er unter anderem Kontakt zu Hans Scholl hatte, und sich der katholischen Zeitschrift Hochland anschloss. 1942 wurde Schlichter ausgebombt und verlor dabei einen Teil seiner Werke. Nach dem Krieg nahm er an der Ersten Deutschen Kunstausstellung in Dresden teil und gründete in München die Neue Gruppe. Gelegentlich arbeitete er für die satirische Zeitschrift Der Simpl. Sein Schaffen wandte sich jetzt dem Surrealismus zu. Rudolf Schlichter trat 1950 dem wiedergegründeten Deutschen Künstlerbund bei. - Minimal gebräunt und im Unterrand minimal wellig.

        Japanese beetle hunter Hudson Maxim warns of invasion

      [New Jersey], c. 1923. 8.5" x 11". "Seven typed single sided sheets, 8.5"" x 11"", circa 1923, boldly signed by Hudson Maxim on the final page as ""Hudson Maxim"". Undated (but accompanied by a photostat letter dated March 12th, 1923 which references his manuscript). Expected folds with a small staple hole upper left corner. Lightly toned, else near fine.Hudson was a U.S. inventor and chemist who invented a variety of explosives, including smokeless gunpowder, Thomas Edison referred to him as ""the most versatile man in America"". His manuscript first prepares the reader as if Japan is preparing to invade the US and says what our natural response would be; however it then segways into the fact that it is actually a non human invasion. ""America is already invaded right here in New Jersey and the conquest of America has already begun. We cannot console ourselves that our Japanese enemy is not a human enemy for an invading army of real Japanese soldiers, even a million of them, would be a less menace … If we were invaded by a real Japanese army, we might rise up and expel the invaders, or, failing in that, we might purchase our freedom with a heavy indemnity … The Japanese beetle if the most all-devouring, the most universally destructive insect pest in the world.""However it is perhaps his illuminating analysis, one which can be applied to most all invasions, or diseases affecting humans or plants (think Eboli), or even terrorism, natural preventable disasters, or even the man made destruction of our planet's delicate balance and resources, which all drive home the need for a quick response before things get out of control. In sum, he cites the following example of what happens when things are allowed to develop without checks and balances (think metaphorically):""The infestation of the Japanese beetle started in 1916 at Cinnaminson, Burlington County, New Jersey. Less than a square mile was infested the first year, when with the expenditure of but a few dollars the pest could have been easily entirely destroyed. The next year only 2.7 square miles were infested and $100,000 would then have cleaned it up the insect. Even the next year, when only 6.7 square miles were infested, a quarter of a million dollars would have exterminated the pest, yet nothing adequate was done, and the next 48 square miles were infested. In 1920, one hundred and three square miles were infested; in 1921 two hundred and seventy and in 1922, seven hundred and seventy-three. It would now probably cost from ten to fifteen millions of dollars to exterminate the pest, to say nothing of the necessary destruction of every growing plant over the infested area. Every automobile and other vehicle passing into and out of the infested areas would need to be rigidly and thoroughly inspected in order to prevent the beetle from being carried into uninfested territory. From Ten to Fifteen million dollars is certainly a lot of money, but if the beetle is allowed to spread over the territory of the United States -- and it will spread over the entire territory wihtin a few years if not prevented -- it will cost the people of the country more than two BILLION dollars a year …"" A fantastic manuscript with a fascinating introspective on the mathematical progression of a single ripple of water initially created by a tiny pebble (in this case the Japanese beetle) and the vast impact it will have on the planet. And a wonderful signed manuscript by ""the most versatile man in America"""

        Washington The City that no Patriotic American can visit without a Better Realization of the Value of His Citizenship (Map title: Washington The Beautiful Capital of the Nation. Baltimore and Ohio. America's First Railroad. Washington's First Railroad.)

      Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. 1923. - Booklet, large folding map at rear, illustrated throughout in black and white and with a black and white centrefold map, 48pp, 9 x 6 inches, decorative stiff card wrappers. Bird's eye view, uncolored, image and text approximately 20 1/2 x 29 inches, folded as issued. Spectacular bird's eye view of Washington D.C. At lower right is the caption: "WASHINGTON. THE HEART OF THE NATION. This Aero View of Washington is the most remarkable map picture that has ever been made. Remarkable for its great range of vision and the stupendous task in making such a drawing and the extreme accuracy in the architectural "lay-out." It shows the city in perspective from a point of vantage east of the Congressional Library looking northwest, thus including the most attractive suburbs with the Capitol in the foreground. This work occupied two years of continuous time of the greatest Bird's-Eye View artist in the country. No map view of this vast and comprehensive nature has ever been made of any City and it is especially a great accomplishment when it is considered that Washington's immense area of public buildings, parks and suburbs is here shown in a picture from which anyone may become familiar with locations of the streets, business blocks and public buildings. Even though it has a "Bird's-Eye View" effect, it has all been sketched from the ground and every block and building is in proper survey." The legend beneath the image identifies "Location of all the Public Buildings and Places of Interest." This map is featured in the Library of Congress' online exhibition of Panoramic Maps.

        Almanakh Vezni: literaturen sbornik [Almanach of the journal "Scales": a literary anthology]

      Vezni, Sofia 1923 - Octavo (21 × 14.5 cm). Original printed wrappers with a constructivist vignette; 104, [16] pp. Five plates, one of which in color, and fifteen illustrations in the text. A very good, partly uncut and unopened copy, with very light fraying to wrapper edges. One of the few key publications by the Bulgarian avant-garde, the striking "Vezni" almanach contains translations of Richard Dehmel, Carl Einstein, Ilya Ehrenburg, and Vladimir Mayakovsky, as well as the Bulgarian Modernist writers Mutafov, Lamar, and Nikolai Rainov. The anthology also acquaints readers with major Western artists through reproductions of works by Chagall (in color), Klee, Kokoschka, Masereel and others. Among the Bulgarian Modernist artists whose illustrations are included are Ivan Milev and Sirak Skitnik. The editor, Geo Milev (1895-1925), was an important Bulgarian literary critic and expressionist poet who began his career as a translator and popularizer of Western poets and philosophers such as Friedrich Nietzsche. He became a leading propagandist of modernist and avant-garde tendencies in Bulgaria and edited the eponymous avant-garde and modernist journal, which appeared from 1919 to 1921. By the early 1920s, his own work became increasingly political and in 1924 he began publishing the leftist journal "Plamak" (Flame). Milev began to provoke scrutiny by the authorities and was evidently killed during an interrogation after the bombing of a Sofia cathedral by communists. "Published the year of the September uprising and the ensuing suppression to which Geo Milev and Yasenov were to fall prey in 1925, the almanac and its cover design of geometric abstraction clearly demonstrates the proximity of Milev's circle to the constructivist aesthetics of the Russian revolution. Four tiny drawings by Mircho Kachoulev representing the four seasons must also be mentioned. The appendix contains a listing of international magazines of the avant-garde, i.e. 'Ca Ira', 'Der Sturm', 'De Stijl', 'Zenit', 'MA' and 'Little Review'" (Jacono 2013, p. 24). Jacono 14. No copies in the trade and none recorded at auction. KVK, OCLC only show the copy at the Frick. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        AVANT-GARDE: KRALJICA PALCKOV V KRALJESTVU PALCKOV. DRUGI DEL [QUEEN OF DWARFS IN THE KINGDOM OF DWARFS. SECOND PART].

      Trieste, Italy: Edinost. Gorisko ucitljsko drustvo . 1923 - 4°, 31 pp. text printed in blue with colour wood-cut illustrations within text and two blue vignettes, original wrappers, illustrated with red wood-cuts (Very Good, minor staining, old hand-written dedication on the first page, wrappers with light foxing on the inner side, spine with small loss of paper). A stunning theatre and music play with original colour woodcuts by one of the leading Yugoslavian Avant-garde and Constructivist artist August Cernigoj, made for Slavic cultural circle on the Fascist occupied territory. This unique theatre play, which was meant to be accompanied with music, and illustrated with stunning wood-cuts, was made entirely in a Slavic cultural circle on the Fascist occupied territory of Gorizia and Trieste, by the associations of teachers, one of them being the author of this book Josip Ribicic (1886-1969). Ribicic was a teacher and one of the most famous authors of children’s books in Yugoslavia, especially before the WWII, when he was active in Slovenian language on the Italian occupied territory. After WWII he dedicated himself to children’s magazines, short stories and recording reminiscences of children, who actively participated in WW II. The dedication note on the first page was made by his wife Roza Ribicic, a teacher in Slovenian school in Trieste and a public figure. In 1925, after the pressure of the Fascists became stronger, the family moved to Rakek in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, just on the other side of the Italian border. The stunning wood-cuts, including the highly decorative wrappers, printed from eight impressions of the same wood-block, were made by a Slovenian Constructivist artist August Cernigoj, who was one of the most famous Yugoslavian artists from the period. Born in Trieste in a Slovenian family, he was influenced by the Avant-garde very early. He was a great admirer of Kandinsky and der Blaue Reiter group, for which he travelled to Munich in 1922. A year later he spent a semester at Bauhaus, studying in Kandinsky's class. The illustrations in this book show a strong influence of modern art, such as der Blaue Reiter, which influenced Cernigoj's work in the 1920s. The composer of accompanied music was Marijo Kogoj, one of the main names of Yugoslavian classical music of the 1920s. He was school by Arnold Schönberg and Franz Schreker, but was active mostly in Slavic circles in Trieste and Grado, at the time under Fascist occupation. This second part was published independently, as a separate story after the first part V kraljestvu palckov, published a year before.

Not all of the plates are traditional fashion plates; Barbier chose to include many fantastical renderings of period and foreign costumes and folk dress, presented in his usual elegant style. Falbalas et Fanfreluches was issued from 1922 through 1926, making this the second of five total issues. This 1923 edition includes "Modes" by Colette, as well as a color-illustrated title page and an additional black & white headpiece. Near fine, loose as issued in a chemise, illustrated with a trio of women surrounded by feathers and pearls, and original glassine. (Colas 1026).

        Im Café. Lithographie.

      Signiert "Rudolf Schlichter". Druck auf Bütten. 40,4 x 30,8 cm (blattgroß). Söhn HDO 72716-7. Eines von 125 Exemplaren. Blatt 7 aus: Die Schaffenden, IV. Jahrgang, 4. Mappe, 1923. Erschienen im Euphorion Verlag, Berlin. - Der deutsche Künstler Rudolf Schlichter gilt als einer der wichtigsten Vertreter der Neuen Sachlichkeit. Schlichter studierte an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Stuttgart und an der Kunstakademie in Karlsruhe, u. a. bei Wilhelm Trübner und Hans Thoma. Schlichter unternahm mehrfach Studienreisen nach Italien und Frankreich und bekam durch seinen Malerkollegen Julius Kasper Kontakt zur Unterwelt. In Karlsruhe gehörte er zu den Mitbegründern der Gruppe Rih, übersiedelte dann nach Berlin, wo er sich der Novembergruppe, der Berliner Secession, den Berliner Dadaisten und der KPD anschloss. In den frühen 20er Jahren erschienen viele Buchillustrationen Schlichters. Sein Freundes- und Bekanntenkreis reichte von Bertolt Brecht, Sternberg, Alfred Döblin und Grosz bis hin zu Carl Zuckmayer, den er schon in Karlsruhe kennengelernt hatte. 1925 waren Werke Schlichters in der Ausstellung Neue Sachlichkeit in Mannheim zu sehen. Zwei Jahre später lernte er seine spätere Frau Elfriede Elisabeth Koehler, kennen und begann sich von der Politik abzukehren und dem Katholizismus zuzuwenden. Zu seinen Bekannten zählten nun Ernst von Salomon und die Brüder Ernst Jünger und Friedrich Georg Jünger. Unter den Nationalsozialisten wurden viele seiner Werke aus Museen entfernt und Schlichter wurde mit einem Arbeitsverbot belegt. Im Jahr 1939 zog Schlichter nach München, wo er unter anderem Kontakt zu Hans Scholl hatte, und sich der katholischen Zeitschrift Hochland anschloss. 1942 wurde Schlichter ausgebombt und verlor dabei einen Teil seiner Werke. Nach dem Krieg nahm er an der Ersten Deutschen Kunstausstellung in Dresden teil und gründete in München die Neue Gruppe. Gelegentlich arbeitete er für die satirische Zeitschrift Der Simpl. Sein Schaffen wandte sich jetzt dem Surrealismus zu. Rudolf Schlichter trat 1950 dem wiedergegründeten Deutschen Künstlerbund bei. - Minimal gebräunt und im Unterrand minimal wellig. Im rechten äußeren Rand ganz schwache Quetschspur. Insgesamt sehr gutes Exemplar.

The rare programme for the Grand Bal des Artistes, "a philanthropic venture for the Union des Artistes Russes, a society that brought together many of the Russian émigré painters and critics such as Victor Bart, Sonia Delauney, Serge Romoff, Léopold Survage, and Zdanevich.

        Dessins

      1923. First Edition . COCTEAU, Jean. Dessins. Paris: Libraire Stock, 1923 [i.e. 1924]. Large quarto, original cream paper wrappers, uncut. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $9000.Signed limited first edition, number 44 of only 625 copies, this being one of only 50 copies “sur Hollande Van Gelder,” with a large laid-in original pen-and-ink drawing by Cocteau entitled “Hommage a Paul Morand,” depicting a wealthy woman reclining in a lounge chair, a copy of one of MorandÂ’s books dangling from her hand.Dessins contains more than 100 line cuts of CocteauÂ’s early drawings, dedicated to Picasso with the apology: “Poets do not draw. They untie the knots in handwriting and then retie them differently.” Because some plates were spoiled in the printing and therefore had to be restruck, the work did not actually appear until 1924. CocteauÂ’s large original laid-in drawing depicts a stylish woman lounging on a wooden chair, a copy of a book by Paul Morand dangling from her hand. Paul Morand, often classified as a modernist and imagist, met Cocteau in 1917 at the premiere of CocteauÂ’s ballet Parade. The two were very much part of the same avant-garde artistic and social movements. Morand remained a member of the literary elite throughout his life, though he was an unapologetic collaborator with both the Vichy regime and the Nazis during World War II. Owner signature.Interior generally fine, slight soiling and a bit of wear mainly to extremities of original wrappers, expert joint repairs. A scarce near-fine copy, most desirable with original drawing by Cocteau.
