      Propyläen-Verlag, Berlin 1923 - A MASTERPIECE OF BOOK DESIGN, ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL FINE PRESS BOOKS, AND A HIGH POINT OF GERMAN AND FRENCH LITERARY AND ARTISTIC TRADITIONS Number 117 of 400. No copies in 30 years in the American auction records. 17 Original Lithographs, signed twice by Max Liebermann and numbered. Book: HEINE, Heinrich. DER RABBI VON BACHERACH. Propyläen-Verlag, Berlin, 1923. Folio. With 17 ORIGINAL Lithographs by Max Liebermann. 1/2 Black Morocco and boards. This copy SIGNED TWICE, as usual on limitation, and additionally (not in all copies) on frontispiece lithograph. Minor spotting and soiling to beige boards, otherwise a HANDSOME AND FINE COPY and internally clean. This book is a wonderful combination of two Jews, one who brought to France, German literary tendencies, and the other who brought to the Germans, French artistic tendencies. Heinrich Heine has been called 'the first modern intellectual' and became one of the greatest and most respected writers of the 19th century. Leibermann was the Great German artist that led the Berlin secession group and introduced French impressionism to Germany. This fine press book, a magnificent combination of typography, design and illustration, is often lauded as among the most beautiful of Jewish fine press books if not all fine press books. Liebermann demonstrates a refined sensitivity in his artwork that parallels the emotive text. The Rabbi of Bacherach includes a lovely and romantic description of a Passover- the earliest and most expressive of the essence of the festival, in modern Jewish literature. The story here recounts that (in trans. and referring to the Haggadah) " It was an old heirloom, with ancient wine stains. It had come down from the days of her grandfather. The book contained many boldly and brightly colored pictures. As a little girl, she had often looked at it so eagerly on Passover evenings." Folio - over 12" - 15" tall [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      William Heinemann, 195 1–75., London - First editions of each volume in the author's acclaimed "Dance to the Music of Time" series. Octavo, 12 volumes. The first volume is near fine in a very good dust jacket. The other volumes are near fine to fine in excellent dust jackets that only show light wear. A very attractive set. Anthony Powell's universally acclaimed epic encompasses a twelve-volume panorama of twentieth century London. Hailed by Time as "brilliant literary comedy as well as a brilliant sketch of the times," A Dance to the Music of Time opens just after World War I. Amid the fever of the 1920s and the first chill of the 1930s, Nick Jenkins and his friends confront sex, society, business, and art. In the second volume they move to London in a whirl of marriage and adulteries, fashions and frivolities, personal triumphs and failures. These books "provide an unsurpassed picture, at once gay and melancholy, of social and artistic life in Britain between the wars" (Arthur Schlesinger, Jr.). Listed on Modern Library's 100 greatest novels of the twentieth century. Time magazine included the novel in its100 Best English-language Novels from 1923 to 2005.

From 1923 through 1936 Tenggren worked for the game and book publisher Milton Bradley. In 1936 he was hired by The Walt Disney Company to work as an art director on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Tenggren gave Snow White an "Old World" look that Walt Disney sought, and despite being minor characters in the original by the Brothers Grimm the dwarfs took on new life in Disney's story, with Tenggren's presentation drawing depicting the major characteristics of each of the seven. His Rackham-style trees featured prominently in the forest scenes.Marie-Catherine Le Jumel de Barneville, Baroness d'Aulnoy (1650/1651–4 January 1705), also known as Countess d'Aulnoy, was a French writer known for her fairy tales. When she termed her works contes de fées (fairy tales), she originated the term that is now generally used for the genre.

      Henry Holt and Company 1923 (1924), New York - Third Printing of the First Trade Edition of one of Frost's most notable books and winner of his first Pulitzer Prize containing such poems as "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" and "Fire and Ice." Illustrated with woodcuts by J. J. Lankes. This copy is INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the poet on the recto of the frontispiece for Harold Dickson along with a MANUSCRIPT stanza from "A Star in a Stone-Boat" in the poet's hand: "Some may [know] what they seek in school and church/And why they seek it there. For what I search/I must go measuring stone walls perch on perch." The poem is the first poem in the book after the title poem. Frost has left out the word "know," likely by accident, and changed the punctuation a bit, as was his wont, most noticeably here changing the original semi-colon after "there" to a period and beginning a new sentence after. Dickson is likely the British colonial administrator in the Middle East from the 1920s until the 1940s, author of several books on the region. Very light wear to the spine tips and corners. At the bottom blank margin of the poem "Nothing Gold Can Stay," the previous owner has penned a poem by Emily Dickinson.

I Nathaniel Peacock, of the parish of St. Giles, haberdasher and author, solemnly declare, That on the third of last August, sitting alone in my study, up three pair of stairs, between the the hours of eleven and twelve at night, meditating upon the uncertainty of sublunary enjoyment, I heard a shrill, small voice, seemingly proceeding from a chink or crevice in my own pericranium, calling distinctly three times, "Nathaniel Peacock, Nathaniel Peacock, Nathaniel Peacock." Astonished, yea even affrighted, at this citation, I replied in a faltering tone, "In the name of the Lord, what art thou?" Thus adjured, the voice answered and said, "I am an atom."
