        "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".

        NASH ENGINEERING COMPANY SALESMAN PHOTOGRAPHIC SAMPLE CATALOGUE

      (South Norwalk, CT):: Nash Engineering Co.,. (n. d.).. Oblong format: 8" x 11". Ca. 1923. 43 b/w photographic leaves (5 laid in).. Black flexible dark-brown calf Sieber System binder, yapp edges, gilt stamped to bottom edge of front cover.. Moderate wear to binding (rubbing to leather at edges, some. scuffing). Minor bowing to photos and covers (1 laid-in photograph. more significantly edge-worn and age-toned). Withal, a VG example.. This exceptional salesman sample photo album for the Nash Engineering Company in South Norwalk, CT, provides an excellent visual history of this pioneering producer of liquid ring vacuum pumps. Although their vital importance to the modern age remains mostly unrecognized, the liquid ring pump revolutionized water, heating, electric power, and sewage systems, pulp and papaer production, and proved absolutely vital in gas extraction, and many other general industrial applications in the 20th century. These unsung workhorses are essential to modern physical plant systems. Nash (1852-1923) invented the liquid ring vacuum pump, and was the holder of over 100 US patents for pumps, engines, water meters, and other equipment. He founded the Nash Engineering Company in 1905, and by 1914 filed the US patent for the liquid ring vacuum pump, which he had first employed in the reinforced concrete factory he built at Wilson Point Road, shown here in the photos. The photos also show the testing department, test plant, vacuum pumps in the storehouse, and the test room switch board. The photos lavishly illustrate many pumps with varying horsepower, and applications such as those to maintain condenser vacuum on large steam turbine generators, those used on paper machines to dewater paper pulp slurry and extract water from press felt fabrics, as well as those that could be applied to molded pulp products. Of particular interest are the many photos of pumps installed for physical plant systems in such buildings as the Sherman Hotel, Chicago IL; boiler room of the Ohio River Edison Company; Price Brothers COmpany, Ltd., Quebec, Canada; Chatsworth Apartments, 72nd & Riverside, NY; Cunard Building, 25 Broadway, NY, and many others. Of interest are the photos of the Nash display at the Industrial Exposition, Grand Central Palace, NY in 1914, as well as the award granted to the Nash Engineering Company by the War Department during World War I for their material assistance in obtaining the victory of the allies. No institutional holdings located on OCLC. Rare. . 48 original silver-gelatin photos (7.25" x 9.5") exhibiting the factory, assembly floor, testing area, wide range of liquid ring vacuum pumps, and the numerous industries, commercial buildings, and homes in which they were installed. Photographs all with typed identification information & captions on verso, a couple with stamps at lower fore-edge of image.

        The Romances of H. Melville. Including: Typee, Omoo, Mardi, Moby-Dick, White-Jacket, Israel Potter and Redburn

      London: Jonathan Cape, 1923-25., 1923. All First Editions of The Library Edition. 7 volumes. A beautiful presentation in recent full dark blue morocco leather with raised bands, gilt titles and decoration to spines; top edges gilt. This is the First Collected Edition of the Romances, not noted by Blanck. 'Herman Melville was an American novelist, short story writer, essayist, and poet. His first two books gained much attention, though they were not bestsellers, and his popularity declined precipitously only a few years later. By the time of his death he had been almost completely forgotten, but his longest novel, Moby-Dick — largely considered a failure during his lifetime, and most responsible for Melville's fall from favour with the reading public — was rediscovered in the 20th century as one of the chief literary masterpieces of both American and world literature.' Moby Dick, listed in 'The Novel 100' (Burt, 2004).

        THE PROPHET (Presentation Copy)

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1923 - 8vo, 107 pp., complete with 12 illustrations after the author's own drawings; black cloth stamped in gilt, black topstain, lacking the dust jacket. Laid in is a publisher's promotional pamphlet for the "16th Season, Fall, 1923." A Near Fine copy of the book, spine faded and gilt dulled, otherwise in excellent condition. Inscribed by the author, "To Dr. Percy S. Grant with real admiration from Khalil Gibran October 1923," (within a month of publication). Percy Stickney Grant (1860-1927), the "Radical Cleric" was an American Protestant Episcopalian clergyman and close friend of Gibran's in the circle of Greenwich Village luminaries, writers and artists. He became known for his support of Socialism and for his "forum" for the expression of views on labor and living conditions. Grant lived at 7 West 10th only a few doors away from Gibran at 51 West 10th. Pasted to the recto of the second blank in Gibran's hand is the return address from the envelop it was delivered in: "From K. Gibran 51 W. 10th St New York City-" the home where Gibran wrote "The Prophet" and lived the last 20 years of his life.Gibran is the national poet of Lebanon, the country of his birth, but his reputation is global. Gibran's series of 26 inspirational essays in English prose, each dealing with a separate theme, has never been out of print, has been translated into over 40 languages and has sold over 100 million copies. Based to a large extent on the success of this work, Gibran is credited as the third best-selling poet of all time, behind Shakespeare and Lao-Tzu. With an initial print run of just 1159 copies, first editions are scarce on the market, particularly when signed or inscribed. Near Fine. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Jane Eyre

      Paris - l'Imprimerie Nationale de France 1923 - A scarce limited edition copy of Jane Eyre from Charlotte Bronte. Large quarto, set up in Garamond type, printed in red and black on the press of the imprimerie Nationale de France in Paris. Illustrated with seventeen lithographic plates by Ethel Gabain. Numbered 113of four hundred and ninety-five copies only (collated, complete). Primarily of the bildungsroman genre, Jane Eyre follows the emotions and experiences of its title character, including her growth to adulthood, and her love for Mr. Rochester, the byronic master of fictitious Thornfield Hall. In its internalisation of the action the focus is on the gradual unfolding of Jane's moral and spiritual sensibility and all the events are coloured by a heightened intensity that was previously the domain of poetry the novel revolutionised the art of fiction. Charlotte Bront has been called the 'first historian of the private consciousness' and the literary ancestor of writers like Joyce and Proust. The novel contains elements of social criticism, with a strong sense of morality at its core, but is nonetheless a novel many consider ahead of its time given the individualistic character of Jane and the novel's exploration of classism, sexuality, religion, and proto-feminismWith the original glassine wraps. Condition: In paper wraps with a clothslipcsebinding. Externally, sound, though with some rubbing and wear to the extremities. Closed tears to the head of the spine, and front jointis cracked. Textblock is generally firmly bound, though loosening in places, with most of the plates detached. Pages are bright and clean, with just a few instances of spotting. Overall: GOOD.

      Leipzig: Insel-Verlag, 1923 - 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".
