        Der Weibliche Akt

      Verlag H. v. Seggern & Sohn, Hamburg 1923 - Quarto. [2]pp (Title), [6]pp (Introductory text), 12 loose leaves (Plates), as issued. Original photo-illustrated paper portfolio.Rare portfolio of twelve photogravure plates of the nude by Jozsef Pecsi (1889-1956), an influential Hungarian photographer whose Budapest studio was one of the city's busiest in the 1910s and 1920s. His pictorialist portraits, landscapes, advertisements (that amalgamated the elements of new objectivity, still lifes, avant-garde nudes), and his new approach to portraits of people have all proved to be enduring and in many cases have inspired numerous followers. In 1923 Pécsi published this portfolio of twelve photogravures of the nude, in which hisuse of furniture and other props gives his photographs a theatrical mood. Each photogravure measures 5 7/8 x 4 1/4" and is tipped in onto a tan cardstock measuring 9 1/4 x 7 3/8"Some creasing, staining and closed tears to portfolio. Inside of portfolio taped along edges. Minor foxing to title page. Text in German. Portfolio in overall fair to good-, interior in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        La Dame de pique

      Paris: Editions de la Pléiade, J. Schiffrin & Cie, 1923. Copy no. 17 of 25 copies on Japon imperial, signed by J. Schiffrin and illustrated by Vasily Shukhaev, with a suite of illustrations in color on Japon and a suite in black on Chine. Entire edition: 345 copies; 25 on Japon with two suites, as ours; 35 on Japon without suites; 260 on Velin filigrane; 25 hors commerce on Velin). Two volumes. Quarto (7” x 9”). Wrappers. Text in original glassine. 91pp., with 21 illustrations in color, including seven full-page and fourteen in text. Board folder with two suites of the plates (one in color and one in black). Introduction by André Gide. Printed using the “pochoir” process on March 15, 1923 on the presses of G. Kadar in Paris. Fine copy. The illustrations are done by the Russian “neo-Romantic” artist Vasily Ivanovich Shukhaev (1887-1973). (His works were signed Vassili Choukhaeff from 1921-35.) A portraitist, stage designer, book illustrator, and muralist, Shukhaev is now remembered primarily as a superb draftsman. Shukhaev was a member of the influential group of artists and intellectuals “Mir iskusstva” [World of Art] (1898-1903; 1911-1927) from 1917. During this period, the group admitted avant-garde artists that included the Bubnovy Valet (Jack of Diamonds group) with their interest in French art. The miriskusniki (members of the movement) turned away from contemporary art and gravitated toward folk themes and even the 18th-century rococo drawings of Watteau. Although closely associated with Russian avant-garde painters, Shukhaev “lived and worked outside the confines of the avant-garde, and consciously or unconsciously, fought against its extremism. Jacovleff and Shukhaev, for example, never betrayed their allegiance to the canons of the Italian Renaissance” (Bowlt, et al., 247-8). After studying in Italy, Shukhaev moved to Finland, then to southern France, and then to Paris in 1921, where he stayed for 14 years. As a “Russes francisés,” he was part of the early Russian immigration to Paris after the Revolution, allying himself with artists such as Alexandre Benois, Ivan Bilibin, Dimitri Bouchčne, and others. “[His] endeavor to maintain the elegance and measured taste of the World of Art is clear from his pochoir illustrations to the deluxe editions of Alexander Pushkin’s Boris Godunov and Queen of Spades” (Bowlt, et al. II, 372). In addition to book illustrations, Shukhaev did important work in the theatre for Balieff’s Chauve-Souris (he was a close friend of the impresario Baileff) and for Ida Rubinstein’s Sémiramis at Opera de Paris (1934). He also influenced American artist John Steuart Curry (1897-1946) who began painting during a visit to Paris for several months in 1926-27 where he studied at Shukhaev’s drawing academy. In 1935, Shukhaev returned to the USSR and, in the spring of 1937, he was sentenced on a charge of espionage to nine years at a correctional labor camp. He was discharged in 1945. From 1947, he lived in Tbilisi, Georgia where he taught until retirement.* The translator and publisher Jacques Schiffrin (1892-1950) founded Éditions de la Pléiade in 1922. La Dame de Pique was his first book. Later, he expanded the name to the Bibliothčque de la Pléiade, a publishing project founded to provide the public with reference editions of the complete works of classic European authors in a pocket format. Bibliothčque de la Pléiade was integrated into Gallimard in 1936 and is still published today. Gallimard and Einaudi began a similar series of literature in Italian, the Biblioteca della Pléiade. The Library of America series, launched in 1979, is a similar project in the United States inspired by the Bibliothčque de la Pléiade. Schiffrin was born in Baku, Azerbaijan in 1892. Raised in comfortable circumstances due to a petrochemical business established by his grandfather with the assistance of Alfred Nobel, he was educated in Switzerland and in Florence. Schiffrin became secretary to the art historian Bernard Berenson and later served as a Russian language tutor to Peggy Guggenheim. His family assets were nationalized after the Russian revolution. In A Political Education, his son André tells the story of Jacques winning enough money at the tables of Monte-Carlo to support himself for several years. After a short-lived marriage to pianist Youra Guller, he went to Paris in 1921 where he became an apprentice to the art-book publisher Henri Piazza. Jacques decided to create a publishing house for the publication of Russian literary classics translated into French. “It was at the very beginning of the Éditions de la Pléiade that my father [in 1922] got in touch with André Gide, whose help he sought in translating what would be his first book, Pushkin’s The Queen of Spades. The books [of the first years] were lavishly illustrated, some by Russian artists living in Paris, and they had stunning typography, which my father had himself designed” (Schiffrin, 24). Jacques had a long and important friendship and collaboration with André Gide: “They had met in Paris in 1922, shortly after my father’s arrival and his decision to launch his original series of Russian classics with Pushkin’s The Queen of Spades. As was common at the time, my father had been taught French from the earliest days of his Russian childhood, and so he decided to translate the book himself. Nonetheless, he also decided to seek someone to help him check and improve his translation, and out of the blue, he wrote to Gide, who was already very famous” (Schiffrin, 70). Schiffrin, who was Jewish, managed to get his family out of Nazi-occupied France and into the United States because of the work of the American diplomat Varian Fry**. In 1942, Schriffin joined Pantheon Books in New York with the intention of publishing works that were less commercially successful, but intellectually important. *Shaukhaev was the subject of a retrospective exhibition and symposium at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art in 2014. ? For more information about this artist, see the following sources: Bown, Dictionary of Twentieth Century Russian and Soviet Painters, 1900-1980s (London: Izomar Limited, 1998); Lobanov-Rostovsky, “Russian Painters and Their Activities for the Stage, 1885-1935,” Transactions of the Association of Russian-American Scholars in the U.S.A. 2 (1968): 195; “Shukhaev Vasily Ivanovich,” Elysium Art Gallery,; “Vasili Shukhaev. (1887-1973). Retrospective,” Moscow Museum of Modern Art,; “Vasily Shukhayev,” RusArtNet, century/neoclassical-revival/vasily-shukhayev. **Varian Fry (1907-1967): After Germany invaded France in June 1940, the Emergency Rescue Committee, a private American relief organization, sent Fry to France to aid anti-Nazi refugees who were in danger of being arrested by the Gestapo. In Marseille, Fry's network of accomplices forged documents and created clandestine escape routes. He offered aid to antifascist refugees, both Jews and non-Jews, threatened with extradition to Nazi Germany under Article 19 of the Franco-German armistice (the "Surrender on Demand" clause). Fry remained in France for 13 months. He was under constant surveillance, and was questioned and detained by authorities more than once. He established a legal French relief organization, The American Relief Center. Fry's efforts resulted in the rescue of some 2,000 persons, including such distinguished artists and intellectuals as Marc Chagall, Max Ernst, Franz Werfel, Lion Feuchtwanger, and Heinrich Mann. His covert activities angered officials of both the US State Department and Vichy France, and in September 1941, he was expelled from France.

        Las Seiscientas Apotegmas y Otras Obras En Verso.

      Sociedad De Bibliófilos Españoles, Madrid 1923 - CXVI - 330pp.en papel de hilo. Edición numerada de solo 300 ejemplares. Perfecta encuadernación firmada por Brugalla a plena piel. Lomera con nervios. Cantos fileteados. Cortes dorados. Y guardas enmarcadas en piel decorada. =Juan Rufo Gutiérrez1 (n. Córdoba, 1547 - m. ibídem, 1620) fue un escritor y soldado español. Fue alabado por autores contemporáneos como Luis de Góngora o Miguel de Cervantes. De Toledo salieron Las seiscientas apotegmas (1596) que suponen uno de los primeros ejemplos de literatura epigramática en lengua española: dichos, aforismos, breves y brillantes reflexiones, en las que, además de la sagacidad y sensibilidad de su autor, se encierra la vida cotidiana de una época. Pese al título, consta de 707 apotegmas; sigue como modelo la Floresta española de apothegmas de Melchor de Santa Cruz, aparecida en 1574. Aunque coinciden generalmente en contenido y estilo, la obra de Rufo es más moralista y carece de estructura temática. Es una colección de anécdotas, de influjo erasmista. La obra está escrita con un gran dominio de la lengua y revela en el escritor a alguien muy dotado para el ingenio y la frase aguda, que le valieron al autor los elogios de Baltasar Gracián.

Koppen verguld. 324; 304; 320 p. 1e druk. Ruggen minimaal verschoten, leer heeft enkele kleine krasjes, beetje roest in het binnenwerk. Voorplat deel 1 deels verschoten.

Heukelom, zoals men wel eens leest). VV 320,4: 'Het aantal luxe-exemplaren staat niet vast, maar zal niet veel meer dan enkele tientallen zijn geweest'. Het eerste deel van deze verzameling feuilletons werd samengesteld door Couperus zelf, die op 16 juli 1923 zou overlijden, de twee andere door zijn vrouw.

        Der Maler Karl Tomforde (1881 Trier – Frankfurt am Main 1969), Halbfigur zeichnend, im Profil nach rechts.

      - Bleistift, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, links unten signiert und datiert „Lino Salini 1923". 23:21,5 cm. Salini, Kind italienischer Eltern, lebte und arbeitete in Frankfurt als Zeichner und Karikaturist. Er wird oft mit Heinrich Zille verglichen, da er die Motive für seine Zeichnungen gern einem spezifischen Milieu entnahm: den Sachsenhäuser Apfelwein-Schenken. Salini erhielt erste Anleitungen im Malen und Zeichnen von Antonio Becker (1846-1915), Gustav Herold (1839-1927) und Alois Penz (1854-1910). Später hat er sich in der Städelschule bei Wilhelm Amandus Beer (1837-1907) und Emil Gies (geb. 1872) weiter ausgebildet. Seine Karikaturen und Bilder Frankfurter Originale finden sich noch heute in zahlreichen Wirtschaften. Sein Nachlaß wird im Frankfurter Institut für Stadtgeschichte verwaltet.
