This copy was previously owned by Frederick W.

        An Extensive Archive of the German Documentary Film Producer, Paul Lieberenz, Containing Photographs, Passports, Original Film Typescripts, Copper Engraved Plates and Much More, from 1923 to 1954

      Lieberenz is Best Known for Wild Game Filming in Africa, and a Journey to Inner Asia with Sven Hedin Cinematography archive, the travels and works of Paul Lieberenz from 1923 to 1954, including some lesser known films and some that may have never seen production, features over 345 photographs including 2 large professional portraits, 4 passports and other identification, 11 dossiers containing innumerable letters and assorted documents, original film typescripts, 2 large binders of contracts with production studios and related material, 8 personalized steel and copper engraved plates, newspaper reviews, and 9 pocket sized day journals. Also includes some posthumous items relating to his death and a biography in his honour, up to 1970. Most text is in German, with a scant few documents in both German and English. Water damage to some passports, most likely occurring in the field, otherwise the lot in very good condition. Contained in acid free archival boxes for extra protection. Paul Lieberenz (1893-1954) was a German filmmaker and writer whose fame derived particularly from his expeditions and subsequent documentaries on wild game in Africa. He was one of the first German documentary film producer, and was equalled by few in his century. Between 1923 and 1939 he travelled several times to Africa. His work saw him to Abyssinia in 1923, Egypt in 1924, Cameroons in 1925, Belgian Congo and South Africa 1931, Portuguese Angola, and Liberia in 1947, the latter of which forms a large part of this archive. Prior to this, in 1927-28 Lieberenz undertook an expedition with Sven Hedin to Inner Mongolia and Lapland, the most elaborately equipped of Hedin's expeditions. This resulted in some spectacular footage at least one book. In filming of the journey from Beijing inland to Urumqi, through rock pierced plains and vast deserts, with a caravan counting over 300 camels, and numerous assistants, he filmed one especially dramatic sandstorm. His beautifully illustrated firsthand account was published in his book titled "Mit Sven Hedin durch Asiens Wüsten, nach dem Tagebuch des Filmoperateurs der Expedition, Paul Lieberenz" [With Sven Hedin Across the Deserts of Asia, from the Diary of the Expedition's Film Director, Paul Lieberenz]. Highlights from the archive include: Four German (4) Passports, two (2) international driver's licenses, and other forms of identification belonging to Paul Lieberenz. Passports span the years of 1923-1943, illustrating travels to Egypt in 1924, to the Cameroons in 1925, to the Belgian Congo and South Africa 1931, to Spain via France in 1937, and much more. The second passport, valid from 1927 to 1932 was issued by the German Embassy in Peking, 23 March 1927, whilst Lieberenz was accompanying Sven Hedin on his Sino-Swedish expedition to Mongolia. Interesting passports with numerous customs clearances and colour stamps, unusually replete with verbose annotations. Also included is a motor car registration (kraftfahrzeugschein). Two identification cards (Ausweis-karte) from 1946 and 1948 each also feature a portrait photograph. A European Union Card from 1951, the first year of its issue, features 19 green stamps. Six (6) steel print plates and two (2) copper print plates, for engraving the name and titles of "Paul Liberenz, Filmproduktion", for both Berlin-Temperlhof and berlin-Wilmersdorf. One plate prints his signature. The largest and heaviest weighs 436 grams. The life and works of Paul Lieberenz in over 325 photographs, with particular attention to travels to inner Asia with Sven Hedin in 1927-1928, and to Liberia in 1947. We find 145 images mounted to 29 folio black cardstock leafs, capture memorable scenes of the filmmaker's family, colleagues and actors, possibly other film producers, travels abroad, career highlights and celebrations. A substantial number of these are from travels with Sven Hedin, including enrapturing images of an Armenian village, impoverished nomadic people, never-ending mountain ranges, and Arabic communities. In itself a visual bibliography, other images are taken in Gemany, Kaffa province in Abyssinia, Liberia, Egypt, and Mongolia, and span most of his lifetime. Photographs vary in size, two are panoramic views, the majority measuring 12 x 17 cm, and three large ones measuring 29 x 33cm. A dossier contains 120 spectacular photographs taken in Liberia in 1947 for his 'Stroll Around the World' film released in 1949. Images from this collection reveal, in vivid form, indigenous custom of the Pepper Coast shortly after the country became a vocal critic of the South African apartheid regime. Together with two signed publicity photographs professionally printed and mounted by J.V. Tucholka of Berlin-Charlottenburg, each measuring 23 x 17 cm, with penciled signature to mount. Together with a small string-tied album of 54 photographs centered around Germany, but also featuring some views of Pillau (now Baltiysk, Kaliningrad Oblast, Russia), and a sojourn to East Prussia from 2 to 22 July 1934. Contracts between Lieberenz and film production companies, and extensive correspondence, mostly from the 1950s, representing Twentieth Century Fox, the Transocean Film Company, and many German producers of kulturfilm. Housed in two very large ring binders, we find obscure and little known short film scripts, some possibly never having been produced, such as one on the elephants in Liberia, dated 1947. Also inserted between the documents of legalese and many letters, are a few more photographs, a rare quarto sized portrait of Wilhelm Filchner looking aptly weathered after expedition through Tibet in 1905 being a curious highlight. Ten (10) separate filmography dossiers pertaining to the planning, licensing, and execution of Lieberenz films, some virtually bursting with documents, in and of themselves historically illuminating whole serving to demonstrate the immense work involved in film production. Five of the dossiers pertain to the 'First German Liberia Expedition' which took place in 1947. Two of these are working drafts for publishing, titled "Frohe Studen bei dunklen Menschen [Happy Times spent with Dark People]" one of which is a 344 page typed narrative, the other containing 120 captioned photographs with reference to page numbers in the text. The volume of photographs is especially endearing to the nation's people and their traditional ways, as the photographer was immersed into the community for some time, affording us unusually carefree images of tribal chiefs, kings and queens, and so much more. Boards are heavily chipped at extremities, and one front is detached, otherwise contents are in very good condition. Two other dossiers contain innumerable documents and correspondence, and the final item pertaining to this expedition is a formal printing of the 'Plan and Organization' in yellow wrappers, with text in both German and English, and including a folding map. In addition to the Liberia expedition, five further dossiers continue to record the tireless work of one German filmographer. One of these contains more text for later, as well as a script for "Der Ranger" and related correspondence with the Assoiated British Picture Corporation, a lesser known film dealing with diamond mines in South Africa's Kruger National Park. Another which is titled 'Der Weg in die Welt [The Road to the World]' deals with German colonial schools and includes two offprints printed in 1974 and 1975 with the same title, contains documents from 1958 to 1970. Another titled 'Lieberenz Unterlagen 1954 [Lieberenz Documents]' contains official documents such as licenses for his own productions, some from the British Information Control Commission, some multi page reports to the Military Government of Germany which outlines film income and assets, so forth. Paul Lieberenz died 31 August 1954. A collection of 34 condolence letters and 1 telegram, sent to his wife Gerti from film institutes, movie producers, and the like, features many with mourning borders, most signed in the original by some notables of the time. Finally, the latest folder memorializes his contribution to a book by Von Franz Born titled "Ehrenbürger von Berlin" with a 9 part serial extract of the work illustrated with Lieberenz photographs, printed in a German newspaper, September to November 1961. Together with 5 letters to Gerti Lieberenz, of Lieberenz Filmproduktion, in 1962, relating to the book. Two (2) newspaper published reviews of his most famous works, one pertaining to the 1927-1928 Sven Hedin expedition and Lieberenz' captivating imagery, offering a large camels in desert scene with the article. The other is an article on his travels into 'unknown Africa' with Hans Schomburgh [Der Weg ins Unbekannte Afrika] with a full page cover photo. Nine (9) Pocket Diaries (Taschenkalender), each representing a single year between 1930 and 1954, in which was logged important appointments and such. The 1941 volume is tooled in gilt to front, with an insignia of a Union dated 1807. All are pocket size with leather boards, except the 1946 which has paper wraps. Further groupings of photographs and photographic postcards (not included in the above count), one of the latter bearing Lieberenz' signature, brief printed texts, and newspaper clippings are thematically organized. .

        Giselle - Théâtre Romantique Russe".

      - 11 gouaches, sur papier cartonné, sur papier cartonné (feuilles 49 x 30 cm, dessins 45 x 27 environ), deux dessins datés et signés, en bas à gauche, 1923, encadré. Léon ZACK (Nijni Novgorod, Russie - Paris, 1980) fuit la Russie avec sa femme et sa petite fille en 1920. Il s'installe à Paris où il rencontre PICASSO et LARIONOV. Il s'intègre dans la scène artistique et réalise deux ans plus tard les décors et costumes pour les ballets russes de Boris ROMANOFF à Berlin. Ses premières lithographies datent de la même année. Il évolue peu à peu vers un style abstrait dans les années 1950. Boris ROMANOFF est un danseur et chorégraphe russe. A partir de 1913, il travaille pour DIAGHILEV et met en scène les musiques de STRAVINSKI. Il quitte la Russie en 1920 et dirige depuis l'Allemagne la compagnie qu'il a créée, le "Théâtre Romantique Russe". Le théâtre étant un des champs d'expression privilégiée de l'émigration russe, il travaille ensuite avec sa femme Elena SMIRNOVA et Anna PAVLOVA, formées à l'école impériale russe ; et l'Opéra Russe de Paris et les Ballets Russes de Montecarlo. Léon ZACK représente tous les personnages du folklore russe : les princes, les tsars, les moujiks, les bergers, les dames de compagnie, les paysannes, les tsarines et les musiciens. La compagnie a monté cinq spectacles "Nuit Andalouse" (d'après L'Arlésienne de BIZET), "La Danseuse et la Larronne" (d'après MOZART), "Quatrocento" (ballet sur les nouvelles et peintures de la Renaissance italienne), "La Pâtisserie enchantée", et de nombreux ballets. Elle effectue des tournées en Autriche, Espagne, Etats Unis, Allemagne, France et Angleterre. Les gouaches sont des études préparatoires à "Giselle", le plus célèbre ballet de la compagnie (création originale de Adolphe Adam et Jules Henri Vernoy de Saint Georges pour l'Opéra de Paris en 1841) ; c'est l'archétype du ballet romantique où l'héroïne, par amour, danse jusqu'à en mourir. ROMANOV travaille d'après la chorégraphie de Marius PETIPA (créée en 1884 pour le théâtre de Saint Pétersbourg), mais toutes les danses classiques du premier acte sont remplacées par des danses de caractère. Giselle, intérprétée par Eléna SMIRNOVA, revêt le costume d'une petite paysanne. Il s'est inspiré d'un ballet de TAGLIONI, "Sylphide", dont l'action se situe en Ecosse : il y a transporté le thème du ballet. On peut voir dans la suite proposée un costume traditionnel écossais avec le kilt traditionnel, la cornemuse, et brodé sur les rubans des chausses, une des devises du Royaume-Uni ("Honni soit qui mal y pense"). Les danseurs, Elena KRUGER (La Princesse Bathilde), Boris ROMANOV (Hilarion, un garde chasse), Eléna SMIRNOVA (Giselle), et OBOUKHOV (Le Duc Albrecht) (in Nina TIKANOVA, "La Jeune fille en bleu, Pétersbourg-Paris-Berlin", Paris, L'Age d'Homme, pp. 65-67). Le ballet a été présenté aux Théâtres des Champs Elysées en 1923. Petites taches, déchirures, plis et légers manques de papiers. Oeuvre originale

An important author's inscription in volume II is inked on the ffep in four lines, dated eight days prior to publication, and reads: "To Jack / from / Winston / 22 Oct 1923". Churchill was in a special position to write this history, having served both in the Cabinet and on the Front. First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, after the failure in the Dardanelles and the slaughter at Gallipoli Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent his political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma would linger. Churchill may have meant for his history of the First World War to clear his name, but his six volume masterwork far exceeds this purpose. We see a preponderance of sets with inscribed volumes from 1927. By then Churchill had returned to power and was serving as the powerful Chancellor of the Exchequer. Volumes inscribed in 1923 seem considerably more scarce; in 1923 Churchill's Liberal political party was in ruin and Churchill himself was without a seat in Parliament. Rarer still are volumes inscribed with only Churchill's first name, indicating that the recipient was family, a personal friend, or a close associate. The inscribed volume in this set is Volume II - the most important volume, since it provides Churchill's perspective on the Dardanelles offensive. By far the likeliest person to whom Churchill would have inscribed this book thus is Churchill's younger brother, John Strange "Jack" Spencer-Churchill. Jack and Winston were close. Jack served in the South African Light Horse alongside his war correspondent brother in the Boer War between 1899 and 1900. Most pertinent, Jack served with distinction in the First World War, including at Gallipoli. He was awarded the British Distinguished Service Order, as well as the French Croix de Guerre and the Légion d'Honneur. Jack and Winston remained close throughout Jack's life. During the Second World War, when Jack's house was destroyed in the Blitz, he lived at 10 Downing Street. Jack died of heart disease in 1947. What we can state definitively is that this is an inscription to someone close to the author in a pre-publication copy of the first printing of the most important volume of Churchill's history of the First World War. The inscribed 1915 volume is in very good condition. The binding is square, clean, and tight, with minor wear at the corners, spine ends, and hinges. The contents are bright and crisp. Spotting is mostly confined to the prelims and page edges, but unfortunately by far the most heavily spotted page is the inscribed ffep. Nonetheless, the inscription is excellent, with no fading or smudging. The remaining five volumes are a credit to the inscribed Volume II and make this a truly superior set. The exteriors are uniformly clean with only trivial shelf wear, bright gilt, and square corners. There are no inscriptions, bookplates, or previous ownership markings of any kind. Minor spotting is confined to the text block edges of the 1916-1918 and 1911-1914 volumes. The Eastern Front is an especially clean, tight copy. The Aftermath is almost equally fine, marred only by a slight vertical crease in the spine that looks to be a binding flaw. The two 1916-1918 volumes are remarkably clean, flawed only by a hint of spotting to the text block edges. Transfer browning to the endpapers testify that they possessed their original dust jackets for many years. The 1911-1914 volume has an immaculate exterior save for light wear at the head of the spine. Bibliographic reference: A69.2(I-VI).a, Woods/ICS A31(ab), Langworth p.105.

        KO-JI HO^-TEN

      1923. Paperback. WEBER, V.-F. "KO-JI HO-TEN" Dictionnaire a l'usage des amateurs et collectionneurs d'objets d'art japonais et chinois. Paris: Chez l'auteur, 1923. Limited edition: This copy is number 217, from an edition of 585, signed by Weber. Profusely illustrated - with over 2100 text illustrations and 75 plates, of which five are in color. Two folio volumes: 40 x 30 cm. (15 3/4 by 12 in.). V. 1: 512 pp. V. 2: 512 pp. + 138 pp. appendices, + 4 pp. 'Liste des corrections secondaires' laid-in. Bound in their original red-and-black-printed paper wrappers. Wrappers show occasional light soiling but are generally clean. Volume 2 has a closed tear at the crown. Both volumes are quite clean and crisp within, though occasionally over opened (- which isn't surprising given the size and weight of these volumes in relation to their paper bindings). Housed in matching blue and white patterned-cloth chitsu cases, lined with marbled paper, with cloth labels. The bright chitsu cases have darkened slightly along their top-edges and backs. An attractive copy of the rare signed limited edition of Weber's classic work on Japanese and Chinese culture, religion and art. It provides information about famous sites in both countries, as well as information about historical and legendary personages; describes manners and customs, festivals and religious practices; and provides biographies, signatures and other distinguishing marks of the painters, sculptors, engravers, ceramists, and other artists and craftsmen. It also offers summaries of the Japanese and Chinese tales and legends that have inspired the artists of the two countries in their works and in the ornamentation of furniture and other objects.
