        Original watercolour for The Ship That Sailed to Mars. "The Iron Hills"

      [Kimberley, South Africa, sometime before, 1923]. From The Ship That Sailed to Mars. Original watercolour on paper (visible image 245 × 206 mm; framed 410 × 370 mm). Together with original leaf of accompanying calligraphic text: the descriptive text to accompany this plate (text in black with initial letters and decorations in blue). Two items individually matted, glazed and framed. Born in Northumberland, Timlin emigrated to South Africa, where he studied art and practised as an architect. The Ship That Sailed to Mars (1923) is his only published book, a fantastical illustrated gift book that rivalled those of Rackham, Dulac, Goble and Nielsen. The book was published by George Harrap, who had earlier published Willy Pogany, and they followed a similar format here, reproducing Timlin's original calligraphic text mounted, like the plates, on grey matte paper. Timlin's book is divided in three parts: detailing the building and outfitting of the ship, the journey, and the arrival. "The Iron Hills" is the fourteenth plate of the third part, showing a dragon flying over dark mountain peaks.

An issue novel about women entering the work force. The heroine juggles home life and a career, finally sacrificing her marriage in order to rise to executive status in a publishing company.

The first printing was quite small.Some minute oxidation to the gilt on the front board, else Fine and apparently unread. Jacket is spectacular and unrestored, easily Near Fine. Hanna 2640.

        Lists of Merchant Vessels of the United States. 1868 - 1969

      Washington,: GPO, various dates. Color and b/w plates, ills. Various paginations. A centuryÂ’s worth of Lists of Merchant Vessels, lacking only a few years, and with no extended gaps. All the texts and most of the bindings are in Good - VG condition, with the exception of the 1860s and 70s, which were bound in fragile leather which has split, leaving the boards present but detached. Many are removed from various customs houses, depositories and government and institutional libraries. Aside from title page stamps almost none of them are marred by excessive library markings. One volume, 1923, is lacking pp. 122-138, which were never bound in. The rest are complete. Missing volumes are: 1867 (the First Annual), 1869, 1870, 1873, 1875, 1876, 1880, 1883, 1886, 1891, 1933, 1935, 1937, 1940, 1947-49, 1960, 1965-67. The very rare 1917 volume is present in this run. Each volume provides physical specifications for every registered seagoing vessel and yacht, whether sailing or steam, along with number, signal letters, where and when built, home port, and name of owner. This is an unparalleled research tool for treasure hunters, historians and maritime researchers of all sorts. 81 volumes, postage at cost.

In dieser Zeit arbeitete er eng mit M. Liebermann (1847-1935) zusammen und wird zum Kreis um L. Corinth (1858-1935) gezählt.

        Die Sitzung"; acht Herren, drei stehend und fünf sitzend um einen Tisch.

      - Bleistift, schwarze Kreide, ein wenig farbige und weiße Kreide, 1923, auf aufgewalztem gelblichem China, links unten signiert „R. Großmann". 35:50,5 cm. - Beim Aufziehen des dünnen Chinapapiers auf einen dünnen Karton sind zahlreiche Falten entstanden. Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlaß des Malers Robert Hoffmann (1868-1935). Möglicherweise handelt es sich bei den Dargestellten um Berliner Künstler, die Großmann bei einer Sitzung eines Künstlervereins darstellt. Vermutlich Vorzeichnung für eine Graphik, mit Werkstattspuren. Nach einem Studium an der Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie ging Großmann 1905-1914 nach Paris, wo er Schüler von L. Simon (1861-1945) war und freundschaftliche Kontakte zu L. Feininger (1881-1955) und H. Matisse (1869-1954) unterhielt. Anschließend verbrachte er einige Jahre in Berlin; zahlreiche Reisen erneut nach Paris, nach Schweden, in die Schweiz und nach Italien schlossen sich an. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Berlin lehrte er an der Kunstakademie, wurde jedoch 1934 aus politischen Gründen entlassen. Großmann gilt neben Emil Orlik (1870-1932) als der bedeutendste deutsche Graphiker der 20er Jahre.

        World War Through the Stereoscope. [First World War stereo views].

      Keystone View Company,, Meadville, PA: 1923 - A near-complete set of 300 stereo views, illustrating the war in all its facets including battlefields, soldiers and activities on the home front. This was the most comprehensive set on the war issued by Keystone, the largest and most prominent publisher of stereoscopic photographs in the United States, and by the 1920s, the only major publisher in the world, with offices in London, Paris, Sydney, Cape Town, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo. In 1918, the were one of the few publishers permitted to photograph World War I battlefields and military operations. The geographic locations included Germany, Italy, Turkey (Gallipoli), the Balkans (Serbia) and the United States; however, military activities in Belgium and on the French front are most strongly represented, comprising over one-third of the collection. Within these locations, images detail troops, city & battlefield ruins, trenches, medical operations, troop provisioning, victory parades and peace talks. Most interesting is the portrayal of the aircraft used during the war, the first war that aircraft were used on a large scale. A series of views depict the aircraft including biplanes, zeppelins and observation balloons. A card entitled "Scouts, Old and New, French cavalry and Army Airplane" shows a group of men on horseback looking into the sky at a biplane. Another interesting card is an aerial photograph, "The Eyes of the Army- View of German Town from American Airplane". [The only missing card is an image of a biplane, card #154.] Other images of war machinery include warships, U-boats and machine guns. Other interesting images include African-American soldiers returning home (288); women at work on the front (264, 293, 294) and the use of dogs at the front. Generally, there is an emphasis on the war from the American point of view, but the horror of the French front is overwhelming, along with the fat, ineffectual generals. Starting in 1923, Keystone issued these sets in groups of 75, 100, 200 & 300 cards. The set was in print for 10 years, and this set is from the early issues, as later issues were numbered with a "W". Originally, they came in three double book-form volumes, with series and position number on reverse side, the title being "World War Through the Stereoscope (1st through 4th edition). They were also originally issued with a descriptive pamphlet & stereo viewer. This set has the remnants of the three boxes, the spines of two boxes and lacks the descriptive pamphlet. It retains the stereo viewer, which lacks the adjustable slide piece in which the cards are seated for viewing. The cards are slightly bowed (as issued). The silver gelatin print images are extremely bright and strong. Each card is numbered in the center upper margin, above the images, with descriptive text on the back, the image number and the series. A very immediate depiction of the war, conveying both the patriotic, technical advances and the immensely sad desolation that is war.

      London: Macmillan and Co., Limited 1923-34 - 6 volumes, octavo. Original green and red cloth, titles to spine gilt, most copies with front board with blocked design, pages untrimmed. Light rubbing to ends of spine, corners gently bumped, 4 volumes with sunning to spine, a few volumes with soiling and markings to spine and boards, 5 volumes with inner hinges cracked, Collected Poems volume with bumping to top end of front edge, occasional spotting to pages. Overall a very good set. First editions (Essays, Autobiographies, Plays and Controversies) and three early reprints of Yeats' works, the copies of Essays, Autobiographies, Plays, and Collected Poems with presentation inscriptions from Yeats to Margot Collis, "To Margot from her Friend W.B Yeats 1934." Three volumes with the presentation presented on the front free endpaper and the other volume with the presentation on the half title page. Later Poems, though uninscribed, has Collis's pencil ownership inscription. Margot Collis (1907-51) was the stage name for Irish actress Marguerite Ruddock. Their relationship started in the year these books were presented. Their correspondence was published under the title Ah, Sweet Dancer. Collis was also a poet and Yeats is said to have helped edit her works; he included some of her work in the Oxford Book of Modern Verse which Yeats edited in 1936. Collis was married at the time of her relationship with Yeats to actor Raymond Lovell. She was madly in love with Yeats, though he was married to Georgie, and merely engaging in some later-life promiscuity to make up for his younger years spent hopelessly in love with Maud Gonne. The relationship unravelled and Collis became unstable, offering Yeats the inspiration for his poem "A Crazed Girl". Laid in is a 4 page autograph letter signed "Bob" (unidentified - on 26 Burton Court, London, stationary) advising Collis on the writing of a play and the portrayal of characters. The volume of Plays also contains two signed annotations by Yeats, one to the beginning of the play Deirdre ("I have crossed out a number of needless lines in the opening of the play. W.B.Y.") and another at the end of The Player Queen, "(I have altered the end, as last played in Dublin, Decima puts on a mask left behind by the players, makes them dance. They have ??? their animal forms, she stores their money - ??? remembers ??? - her ambiguous words are a farewell to all that she has loved. ??? banishment but with great rewards. W.B.Y.)" Wade 158.

Dagobert [Pseud.]| Hinter dem Pseudonym Dagobert verbirgt sich |Nicolas Sternberg|. Die meisten Illustrationen (15) stammen von Sternberg. Sie sind eindeutig erotisch, in einem sehr körperlich-expressiven Stil und zeigen das Weib als nie zu befriedigende Beherrscherin der männlichen Begierden. Diese Zeichnungen machen auch das Besondere dieser Ausgabe aus. Denn die Illustrationen von Rops, van Maele und Bayros sind aus ihren Originalwerken bereits bekannt.

        "Die Sitzung"; acht Herren, drei stehend und fünf sitzend um einen Tisch.

      . Bleistift, schwarze Kreide, ein wenig farbige und weiße Kreide, 1923, auf aufgewalztem gelblichem China, links unten signiert "R. Großmann". 35:50,5 cm. - Beim Aufziehen des dünnen Chinapapiers auf einen dünnen Karton sind zahlreiche Falten entstanden. Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlaß des Malers Robert Hoffmann (1868-1935). Möglicherweise handelt es sich bei den Dargestellten um Berliner Künstler, die Großmann bei einer Sitzung eines Künstlervereins darstellt. Vermutlich Vorzeichnung für eine Graphik, mit Werkstattspuren.. Nach einem Studium an der Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie ging Großmann 1905-1914 nach Paris, wo er Schüler von L. Simon (1861-1945) war und freundschaftliche Kontakte zu L. Feininger (1881-1955) und H. Matisse (1869-1954) unterhielt. Anschließend verbrachte er einige Jahre in Berlin; zahlreiche Reisen erneut nach Paris, nach Schweden, in die Schweiz und nach Italien schlossen sich an. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Berlin lehrte er an der Kunstakademie, wurde jedoch 1934 aus politischen Gründen entlassen. Großmann gilt neben Emil Orlik (1870-1932) als der bedeutendste deutsche Graphiker der 20er Jahre.

        Die Sonette an Orpheus

      Leipzig: Insel-Verlag,, 1923. Geschrieben als ein grab-mal für Wera Ouckama Knoop. Octavo (214 × 139 mm). Bound for the publishers by H. Sperling in blue calf, titles to spine gilt with raised bands, boards ruled in gilt, gilt and green painted endpapers, turn-ins and top edge gilt. Housed in a custom blue quarter morocco solander box. Faint ink stamp to title page. Spine slightly faded, a little wear to tips and spine, internally fine; an excellent copy. First edition, deluxe issue. Of the 300 copies printed on handmade paper by W. Drugulin for the deluxe issue, 100 copies only were specially bound; this is number 7. Die Sonette an Orpheus (The Sonnets to Orpheus) is considered, along with the Duino Elegies, as Rilke's masterpiece. They were composed in what the author described as a "savage creative storm" during February 1922. The inspiration was the death of the 9-year old Wera Ouckama Knoop, a playmate of Rilke's daughter Ruth, and the poet dedicated them as a "grab-mal", literally a "grave-marker".

Dagobert [Pseud.] Hinter dem Pseudonym Dagobert verbirgt sich Nicolas Sternberg. Die meisten Illustrationen (15) stammen von Sternberg.
