        FINE ORIGINAL CHARCOAL DRAWING, "KING AND DUKE FIND THE MONEY", FROM THE ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN, signed at lower right

      n.p., ca. 1923. Published by Harper & Brothers in their edition of 1923. Image size 21 x 15 inches. Fine Condition . A fine dramatic depiction of the moment when, with Huck holding the candle, the King and the Duke examine the sack of gold coins they plan to swindle from Peter Wilks's rightful heirs. Worth Brehm was exceptionally skillful in his rendering of reflected light, and the use of it in this picture is remarkable. As with virtually all of the artist's illustrations, the greatly reduced published version pales in power and significance with the original drawing, which has an intensity the printed image cannot approach. A SUPERB ILLUSTRATION TO TWAIN'S MASTERPIECE

        The Female Figure

      1923. Photo album. Quarto. 40pp. Stringbound textured paper wrappers. Moderate wear to the extremities with some waviness to the pages and some photos lifting at the corners but all still firmly secured, very good. This portfolio was sold to subscribers by Allen from his Arthur Allen Studios during the late Teens or early Twenties and contains more than 40 pages of original nude photographic prints pasted onto stiff pages. Each sheet has between two and four different images; many showing four separate poses of the same model. The final three pages include 22 additional nudes tipped in after publication, some photos and some from postcards, possibly issued blank for the buyer to customize. The first page also includes a tipped in title page and a bound in brochure announcing this particular series (along with a pencil note, "Received 19 Ap 1923") and predicting: "We are entering a period of nudity." Allen (1886-1962) was a pioneer in nude photography who was unique in that his models displayed certain regions of the female form not documented by other photographers of the time. Allen claimed this was not for salacious reasons, but rather his earnest attempt to display the entirety of nude figure for artistic and "democratic" ideals. He explained in his biography, "To see womankind entirely nude would place all women on equality... And it would be only their true mental and physical charm that would lift them from the ordinary." Allen was arrested and indicted on several occasions during the 1920s for distributing obscene material but continued undaunted. He further pushed the boundaries with a portfolio of women from other races and a film of nude woman performing choreographed routines and military drills. Eventually he became a photographer for the Elysium Foundation, a nudist society, before fading into obscurity. An interesting and arresting (how could we resist) collection of images from the early part of the 20th Century by an unsung pioneer in nude photography. .

        [College Yearbook]: The 1923 Columbian

      Senior Class of Columbia College New York: Senior Class of Columbia College. (1923). First. First and only edition. Bookplate, light edgewear to the boards and the front hinge weakening, but a sound, very good copy. 1923 Columbia Yearbook. Gehrig initially could not play intercollegiate baseball for Columbia because he had played baseball for a summer professional league during his freshman year, unaware that doing so jeopardized his eligibility to play any collegiate sport. Gehrig was ruled eligible to play on the Lions' football team and was a standout fullback and tackle. He later gained baseball eligibility and joined the Lions on that squad as well. But in this yearbook he is featured in photographs and accounts of his days on the football team over the 1922 season. Gehrig is pictured at least twice and is lauded for his "consistent line-plunging," although his efforts could not prevent the season from being "an unmitigated failure, with few, if any, redeeming qualities." Other notables pictured include the authors Corey Ford and Henry Morton Robinson, and Walter Koppisch, Gehrig's teammate, who was later elected to the College Football Hall of Fame. .

        The Vegetable

      Charles Scribner's Sons New York: Charles Scribner's Sons. 1923. First. First edition. Spine lettering dull, a very good copy lacking the dustwrapper. For reasons unknown to us, this copy is Inscribed by Harold H. Knerr, probably the foremost illustrator of the Katzenjammer Kids: "With kindest wishes & best wishes from yours sincerely, Harold H. Knerr." Beneath his inscription, Knerr has drawn his two greatest creations, the mischievous Katzenjammer Kids, Hans and Fritz. Originally created by Rudolph Dirks in 1897, and based on the "Max und Moritz" cartoon pranksters and bad boys created by German artist Wilhelm Busch. Knerr took over the cartoon in 1914, after a lawsuit between the Hearst and Pulitzer papers, and continued until his death in 1949, and created the version of the Katzenjammers best known today. A pleasing little inscription drawing connecting the "bad boy" comic icons to the infant terrible of the 1920s literary world. Fitzgerald's only play. .

        Ich und Du.

      Leipzig, Insel-Verlag, 1923. 8vo. Orig. greyish cardboardbdg w. black and red lettering on front board and black lettering on spine. Some small tears and nicks to capitals. A very nice and clean copy. 137, (3) pp.. First edition of Buber's seminal work, the groundbreaking philosophical essay, which is considered the cause of a Copernican revolution in theology, due to its reaction against a mainly scientific approach to religion. Buber's religious philosophy of dialogue as presented in "Ich und Du" has been a great influence, not only on the fields of philosophy and religion, the study of which he set out to change, or at least give a new approach to, but also on modern therapy. The theories presented in the work are remarkably in accordance with recent views on different forms of human development, which often refer to Buber's theory on the relationship between the self and being. At the time this work was published, Buber's philosophy constituted a radical departure from the psychoanalytic approach to the individual as it was then comprehended.By contrasting the "I-You" ("Ich-Du") -relation (the dialogue) with the "I-It" ("Ich-Es") - relation (the monologue), Buber presents a double "I" of man, and with the "I-You"-relationship he establishes the possibility of man to enter into a true and sincere relationship with others, -and - in spite of the eternal abyss between the two - the "I-You"-relation ultimately establishes the relationship (i.e. the talk or meeting, "Gespräch") between man and God; according to Buber this is the essence of Biblical religion. The meeting with the other person and with the world (which is also governed by an "I-You"-relation) is in fact essentially a reflection of man's meeting with God.The work was later edited by Buber, but he never wished to change it substantially, and the text has remained more or less the same as that of the first edition. "Ich und Du" has been translated into numerous languages, and also in the English-speaking world the book has been very influential, in spite of the difficulties with translating "Du" into English. The work is primarily known as "I and Thou", though the later translation "I and You" might be more appropriate.The Austrian-Jewish philosopher, Martin Buber (1878-1965), is mainly known to the Western world as the author of the work "Ich und Du". Inspired by the reading of Kant, Kierkegaard and Nietzsche Buber began studying philosophy in Vienna in 1896. In 1898 he joined the Zionist movement, regarding it as destined to social and spiritual enrichment. In 1930 he became honorary professor at the University of Frankfurt, but he resigned as soon as Hitler came to power in 1933. In 1935 he founded the "Central Office for Jewish Adult Education", which played an important role in German learning in the 1930'ies, since the German government had forbidden Jews to attend public education. In 1938, however, Buber had to leave Germany, and he settled in Jerusalem, where he became professor at the Hebrew University. After the Second World War he received several prominent prizes

        Schriften. Ausgewählt und herausgegeben von Hans Kayser. Mit der Biographie Böhmes von Abraham von Franckenberg und dem kurzen Auszug Friedrich Christoph Oetingers.

      Leipzig, Insel=Verlag, 1923. 8vo. Original half cloth. Blue paper-covered boards with "Der Dom" in gilding to front board. Spine with soiling and upper part of boards faded. 422, (2) pp. + 1 folded plate.. Wittgenstein's copy, with his own original signed owner's inscription in pencil to front free end-paper: "Von Tommy zu/ Weinachten 1931/ Ludwig Wittgenstein". For the academic year 1932, Wittgenstein had been granted leave from his official teaching engagements at Cambridge, in order to concentrate on his own work. He did, however, wish to give private unpaid discussion classes for interested students, and did so, in his rooms at Whewells Court. These discussion classes became famous, and the lectures that he gave that year even more so. As is evident from the present copy of Boehme's Works, Wittgenstein had been given this book (by "Tommy" - i.e. Tommy Stonborough (1906-1986), his nephew, being the oldest son of his sister Margarete Stonborough-Wittgenstein) for Christmas 1931. Having in his youth been fascinated by the "mystics", but for many years not worked on them, Wittgenstein, in his Cambridge lectures, commencing in the early 1930'ies (after Christmas 1931) revives certain aspects of the "Teutonick philosophy" that Böhme represents, finding resonance with many of his young disciples. Wittgenstein, as Schopenhauer (and Wittgenstein perhaps originally inspired by Schopenhauer's interest), was fascinated by the tradition of the mystics, going back to Hildegard von Bingen, Nicolaus von Cusa, Paracelsus, and probably most importantly Jacob Böhme, and through him the teachings of Bruno, which influenced his philosophy a great deal. Jacob Böhme (or Boehme, in English) was a German mystic, born in the East German town of Goerlitz in 1575 (died in 1624). He received almost no education and made his living as a shoemaker (thus also known as "The Shoemaker of Goerlitz"), but was early on interested in the works of Paracelsus, the Kabbala, and the Hermetic tradition. He is most famous for his unfinished main work "Aurora" (also present in the present copy of his Works), which attracted a circle of followers. He came into conflict with the church on several occasions, was banned from writing and later banished from his home. He became hugely influential within German romanticism, and both Hegel, Baader, and Schelling were influenced by him. He has been given philosophical revivals at frequent intervals, through both Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, Bergson, Heidegger, Buber, and Wittgenstein.Wittgenstein's nephew, Thomas Stonborough, who gave him the present copy of Boehme's Works had studied psychology under Charlotte Bühler (and possibly here himself encountered the writings of Böhme, as e.g. Jung was heavily influenced by him and gives many references to him in his works). He was a silent partner of Bank Shields & Co in New York and for a period of time assistant at Columbia University. He had quite a bit to do with his famous uncle and later inherited the "Wittgenstein-House" in Kundmanngasse in Wien, which he sold in 1971. Wittgenstein handed over some of his belongings, including a number of his books, to his life-long friend Ludwig Hänsel. Among these belongings was the present copy of Böhme's Works given to him by his nephew. Wittgenstein did not have many close friends, but the closest -together with Rudolph Koder- was Luwig Hänsel, who was a high-school teacher of German and literature. Hänsel and Wittgenstein, who befriended each other in 1918 while being war prisoners in Monte Casino, also remained close friends throughout their lives

        Fotografia con firma autografa e lettera autografa firmata. (montceau-les-mines). (1923).

      Foglio bianco ripiegato in due (cm 37,5 x 29 per facciata). Alla prima pagina sono applicate: in alto una fotografia di cm 18 x 23,5, e sotto una lettera autografa firmata. La fotografia ritrae lo scultore al centro di un nutrito gruppo di persone; al margine inferiore la scritta 'Rue Dumont-d'Urville, Paris', la firma autografa dell'artista, ed un'altra firma (probabilmente quella del fotografo). La lettera (quattro facciate di cm 11,5 x 7,5) è scritta sulle due facciate interne per 24 righe più la firma autografa. La prima facciata (bianca) è incollata al foglio, e la quarta reca l'indirizzo e l'affrancatura. Il biglietto è indirizzato alle signore Stettler (Marthe) e Danenberg (Alice), co-direttrici dell'Académie de la Grande Chaumière, alla quale Bourdelle insegnò a partire dal 1909. Si aggiungono un'altra ritratto fotografico originale dello scultore, di cm 18 x 13 (angolo inf. sin. reincollato); una cartolina postale che lo ritrae attorniato da un gruppo di giovani (suoi allievi, probabilmente); ed il catalogo della mostra 'Bourdelle inconnu. Bronzes - Aquarelles - Dessins' svoltasi all'Institut Francais di Firenze nel maggio 1961 (pp. 26 e 6 di ill. fotografiche di opere). Antoine Bourdelle si avvicinò alla scultura sin da piccolo, nello studio del padre artigiano scultore di legno, e all'età di quindici anni ricevette una borsa di studio per l'Accademia di Belle Arti di Toulouse. A partire dal 1884 è allievo di Alexandre Falguière alla Scuola di Belle Arti di Parigi, e dal 1893 assistente pratico del suo amico e fervente difensore Auguste Rodin, con il quale collaborerà per quindici anni. La sua prima mostra personale, nel 1905, ottiene un grande successo. Bourdelle si allontana dallo stile del maestro, muovendo in direzione della scultura antica e medievale. Parallelamente alla creazione delle sue opere insegna all'Académie de la Grande Chaumière (Montparnasse), dove avrà allievi del calibro di Alberto Giacometti, Aristide Maillol, René Iché, Germaine Richier. Riconosciuto dopo la morte del maestro Rodin come uno dei più importanti scultori francesi, sarà creatore e vice presidente del Salon des Tuileries, e nel 1924 sarà nominato Commandeur de l'Ordre de la Légion d'honneur. Piccole leggere bruniture alla lettera.
