"I intend to treat the economic relations of a whole social body as far as possible irrespective of its extension, its organisation, its laws of property, etc. The ultimate aim of economic science must be to discover those necessities which are of a purely economic nature and which cannot be arbitrarily mastered by the will of men. An intimate knowledge of these necessities is the first condition for Social Reformers being ever able to produce something more than cheap speculations on the economic organization of the future or costly disturbances of the very delicate machinery of present economic life." - from Preface.

        Grand Bal des Artistes Travesti Transmental

      Salle Bullier, Paris: L'Union des Artistes Russ, February 23,, 1923. Folio. Original tan wrappers printed in blue. Tipped-in plate and illustrations throughout. Wrappers tanned, chipped, creased, and separated from contents, dark spots to upper wrapper, creasing to corners of contents. Very good condition. The rare programme for the Grand Bal des Artistes, "a philanthropic venture for the Union des Artistes Russes, a society that brought together many of the Russian émigré painters and critics such as Victor Bart, Sonia Delauney, Serge Romoff, Léopold Survage, and Zdanevich. Goncharova and Larionov designed much of the publicity material including the programe, the flyer, and the ticket… They also invited Russian and French colleagues… including Bart, Albert Gleizes, Juan Gris, Ferdinand Léger, Pablo Picasso, and Survage – to sponsor and design forty loges which were then sold in aid of the Union" (Bowlt, Faces Painted with Fanciful Patterns, in USSR 5/6). The programme itself includes two illustrations by Picasso, as well as images by Gris, Derain, and Gontcharova, and facsimile poems by numerous authors. The Union organised a number of artists' balls in the early 1920s, but this was by far "the most ambitious… The program included four dance bands and two bars serving 'pommes frites anglaise et cocktails' and the dancing was supplemented by all kinds of happenings" (Bowlt). A fantastic and ephemeral publication.

        La Dame de pique

      Paris: Editions de la Pléiade, J. Schiffrin & Cie, 1923. Copy no. 17 of 25 copies on Japon imperial, signed by J. Schiffrin and illustrated by Vasily Shukhaev, with a suite of illustrations in color on Japon and a suite in black on Chine. Entire edition: 345 copies; 25 on Japon with two suites, as ours; 35 on Japon without suites; 260 on Velin filigrane; 25 hors commerce on Velin). Two volumes. Quarto (7? x 9?). Wrappers. Text in original glassine. 91pp., with 21 illustrations in color, including seven full-page and fourteen in text. Board folder with two suites of the plates (one in color and one in black). Introduction by André Gide. Printed using the ?pochoir? process on March 15, 1923 on the presses of G. Kadar in Paris. Fine copy. The illustrations are done by the Russian ?neo-Romantic? artist Vasily Ivanovich Shukhaev (1887-1973). (His works were signed Vassili Choukhaeff from 1921-35.) A portraitist, stage designer, book illustrator, and muralist, Shukhaev is now remembered primarily as a superb draftsman. Shukhaev was a member of the influential group of artists and intellectuals ?Mir iskusstva? [World of Art] (1898-1903; 1911-1927) from 1917. During this period, the group admitted avant-garde artists that included the Bubnovy Valet (Jack of Diamonds group) with their interest in French art. The miriskusniki (members of the movement) turned away from contemporary art and gravitated toward folk themes and even the 18th-century rococo drawings of Watteau. Although closely associated with Russian avant-garde painters, Shukhaev ?lived and worked outside the confines of the avant-garde, and consciously or unconsciously, fought against its extremism. Jacovleff and Shukhaev, for example, never betrayed their allegiance to the canons of the Italian Renaissance? (Bowlt, et al., 247-8). After studying in Italy, Shukhaev moved to Finland, then to southern France, and then to Paris in 1921, where he stayed for 14 years. As a ?Russes francisés,? he was part of the early Russian immigration to Paris after the Revolution, allying himself with artists such as Alexandre Benois, Ivan Bilibin, Dimitri Bouch?ne, and others. ?[His] endeavor to maintain the elegance and measured taste of the World of Art is clear from his pochoir illustrations to the deluxe editions of Alexander Pushkin?s Boris Godunov and Queen of Spades? (Bowlt, et al. II, 372). In addition to book illustrations, Shukhaev did important work in the theatre for Balieff?s Chauve-Souris (he was a close friend of the impresario Baileff) and for Ida Rubinstein?s Sémiramis at Opera de Paris (1934). He also influenced American artist John Steuart Curry (1897-1946) who began painting during a visit to Paris for several months in 1926-27 where he studied at Shukhaev?s drawing academy. In 1935, Shukhaev returned to the USSR and, in the spring of 1937, he was sentenced on a charge of espionage to nine years at a correctional labor camp. He was discharged in 1945. From 1947, he lived in Tbilisi, Georgia where he taught until retirement.* The translator and publisher Jacques Schiffrin (1892-1950) founded Éditions de la Pléiade in 1922. La Dame de Pique was his first book. Later, he expanded the name to the Biblioth?que de la Pléiade, a publishing project founded to provide the public with reference editions of the complete works of classic European authors in a pocket format. Biblioth?que de la Pléiade was integrated into Gallimard in 1936 and is still published today. Gallimard and Einaudi began a similar series of literature in Italian, the Biblioteca della Pléiade. The Library of America series, launched in 1979, is a similar project in the United States inspired by the Biblioth?que de la Pléiade. Schiffrin was born in Baku, Azerbaijan in 1892. Raised in comfortable circumstances due to a petrochemical business established by his grandfather with the assistance of Alfred Nobel, he was educated in Switzerland and in Florence. Schiffrin became secretary to the art historian Bernard Berenson and later served as a Russian language tutor to Peggy Guggenheim. His family assets were nationalized after the Russian revolution. In A Political Education, his son André tells the story of Jacques winning enough money at the tables of Monte-Carlo to support himself for several years. After a short-lived marriage to pianist Youra Guller, he went to Paris in 1921 where he became an apprentice to the art-book publisher Henri Piazza. Jacques decided to create a publishing house for the publication of Russian literary classics translated into French. ?It was at the very beginning of the Éditions de la Pléiade that my father [in 1922] got in touch with André Gide, whose help he sought in translating what would be his first book, Pushkin?s The Queen of Spades. The books [of the first years] were lavishly illustrated, some by Russian artists living in Paris, and they had stunning typography, which my father had himself designed? (Schiffrin, 24). Jacques had a long and important friendship and collaboration with André Gide: ?They had met in Paris in 1922, shortly after my father?s arrival and his decision to launch his original series of Russian classics with Pushkin?s The Queen of Spades. As was common at the time, my father had been taught French from the earliest days of his Russian childhood, and so he decided to translate the book himself. Nonetheless, he also decided to seek someone to help him check and improve his translation, and out of the blue, he wrote to Gide, who was already very famous? (Schiffrin, 70). Schiffrin, who was Jewish, managed to get his family out of Nazi-occupied France and into the United States because of the work of the American diplomat Varian Fry**. In 1942, Schriffin joined Pantheon Books in New York with the intention of publishing works that were less commercially successful, but intellectually important. *Shaukhaev was the subject of a retrospective exhibition and symposium at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art in 2014. ? For more information about this artist, see the following sources: Bown, Dictionary of Twentieth Century Russian and Soviet Painters, 1900-1980s (London: Izomar Limited, 1998); Lobanov-Rostovsky, ?Russian Painters and Their Activities for the Stage, 1885-1935,? Transactions of the Association of Russian-American Scholars in the U.S.A. 2 (1968): 195; ?Shukhaev Vasily Ivanovich,? Elysium Art Gallery,; ?Vasili Shukhaev. (1887-1973). Retrospective,? Moscow Museum of Modern Art,; ?Vasily Shukhayev,? RusArtNet, century/neoclassical-revival/vasily-shukhayev. **Varian Fry (1907-1967): After Germany invaded France in June 1940, the Emergency Rescue Committee, a private American relief organization, sent Fry to France to aid anti-Nazi refugees who were in danger of being arrested by the Gestapo. In Marseille, Fry's network of accomplices forged documents and created clandestine escape routes. He offered aid to antifascist refugees, both Jews and non-Jews, threatened with extradition to Nazi Germany under Article 19 of the Franco-German armistice (the "Surrender on Demand" clause). Fry remained in France for 13 months. He was under constant surveillance, and was questioned and detained by authorities more than once. He established a legal French relief organization, The American Relief Center. Fry's efforts resulted in the rescue of some 2,000 persons, including such distinguished artists and intellectuals as Marc Chagall, Max Ernst, Franz Werfel, Lion Feuchtwanger, and Heinrich Mann. His covert activities angered officials of both the US State Department and Vichy France, and in September 1941, he was expelled from France.

        The Works of Joseph Conrad.

      London: J.M. Dent & Sons, 1923. Octavo, original cloth, 22 volumes. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper of Almayer's Folly and Tales of Unrest, "To Claudine and Allan Wade from their friend Joseph Conrad 1923." The recipients, Allan and Claudine Wade was an actor, director, bibliophile and founder of The Phoenix Society. In excellent condition. Joseph Conrad was a Polish-British writer regarded as one of the greatest novelists to write in the English language. He joined the British merchant marine in 1878, and was granted British nationality in 1886. Though he did not speak English fluently until he was in his twenties, he was a master prose stylist who brought a non-English sensibility into English literature. Conrad is considered an early modernist, though his works still contain elements of 19th-century realism. "His narrative style and anti-heroic characters have influenced many authors, including T. S. Eliot, William Faulkner, Graham Greene, and Salman Rushdie" (John Stape, The Many Lives of Joseph Conrad).

        La Revue Méridionale. De Février 1923 (Tome IV - n° 1) au 15 Septembre 1925 (Tome VIII - n° 10 et dernier numéro publié) sauf Mai 1923

      Rédaction et Administration La Revue Méridionale. 30 numéros in-8 br., Rédaction et Administration, Bordeaux, 1923 Rare série proposant de manière quasi-suivie (hormis l'absence du numéro de Mai 1923) de la "Revue méridionale" fondée par le Comte Bertrand de Lur-Saluces, depuis Février 1923 jusqu'à son dernier numéro publié daté du 15 septembre 1925. A cette date, la Revue Méridionale fusionna avec la "Revue Fédéraliste" de Lyon. La présente série a été richement truffé par l'abonné de coupures de presse (collées sur des feuillets insérés dans chaque numéros) relatives à la politique, aux lettres et aux arts, mais également à la vie locale (Bordelais et Gascogne). L'aspect global de la collection en est fortement affecté (et chaque numéro est protégé par un papier kraft souvent contrecollé en marges), mais l'intérêt de la série, l'une des rares à s'ouvrir aussi largement aux Félibres de "Guyenne et Gascogne" (dont Adolphe Dumas), en est encore accru.

        Il fuoco delle piramidi. Liriche e parole in libertà con prefazione di F. T. Marinetti

      In-8° (245x168mm), pp. 29, (2) di catalogo delle "Edizioni Futuriste di "Poesia". Brossura editoriale con titolo in rosso e nero. Testo impresso al solo recto; le composizioni parolibere del Mopurgo sono diposte secondo estrosi schemi di grafica futurista, tra i più originali e inventivi dell'intera produzione di tale movimento in àmbito italiano. Perfetta copia entro velina. Edizione originale della maggiore raccolta di poesia parolibera del Morpurgo. "Nel suo libro più importante, Il Fuoco delle Piramidi, egli presenta tavole parolibere di grande originalità, tra cui la celebre poesia visiva Amore, in cui le lettere si dispongono in una specie di diagramma sinusoidale che rimanda allo stato di movimento, nonché alla condizione psicologica di esaltazione-depressione, e contemporaneamente allude all'immagine del mare, al moto delle onde, tutti simboli dell"atto amoroso" (Salaris 1992: pag. 179). "Nelle tavole del "Fuoco delle Piramidi", il segno, assume pienamente il carattere di grafo, pertanto la significazione risulta organizzata dai rapporti di posizione dei vari elementi, spesso indicati da indici segnaletici di collegamento, che stabiliscono i rimandi... Il grafo, composto in reticolo oppure in diagramma, serve al Morpurgo per trasmettere non solo una informazione, (...) ma il significato della informazione pure, per semiosi ovvero costruzione... Cosi la disposizione sinusoidale di "Amore" realizza direttamente, nel proprio tracciato grafico, le molteplici implicazioni connotative del lessema: stato di movimento oscillante, pertanto alternanza di condizioni psicologiche o emozionali, visualizzazione in analogia del moto ondoso (connotazioni dei tratti di instabilita e dolcezza)" (Viazzi, I poeti del Futurismo, p. 418). Il Morpurgo (Il Cairo, 1899-Rimini 1978), che di professione era avvocato, fu uno dei principali esponenti del Futurismo italiano. Nella sua nazione natia collaborò come giornalista a svariati quotidiani e periodici (Le journal d'Egypte - La Bourse Egyptienne - Le Progrès Egyptien- Il giornale d'Oriente). Salaris, cit. Viazza, cit. Cammarota, Futurismo, 333, 4. Dizionario del Futurismo, p. 760a: "Tra gli esiti maggiori del sintetismo e del paroliberismo futurista per nitidezza grafica e costruzione iconoica del lessema". Italiano

        Die Verstümmelten. Roman.

      Rowohlt, Berlin 1923 - 269 S., 1 Blatt Anzeigen. Orig.-Halbleinenband. Mit eigenhändiger, persönlicher Widmung des Autors in tschechischer Sprache: "Svému sefovi panu vyslanci doktoru Kroftovi v hluboké úcte venovano V Berline, 27.III.1925, Dr. H. Ungar" ("Meinem Chef, Herrn Botschafter Dr. Krofta in tiefer Ehrfurcht gewidmet, Berlin, 27.III. 1925 Dr. H. Ungar" - Für die Übersetzung danke ich Dr. Václav Petrbok aus Prag und Dr. Klaus Johann für die freundliche Vermittlung ). Hermann Ungar (1893-1929), gehörte zum Prager Kreis um Franz Kafka, Ernst Weiß und Max Brod. Er veröffentlichte während der 1920er Jahre ein schmales, aber originäres Werk, das in der literarischen Öffentlichkeit durchaus Beachtung fand, wegen der scheinbar erbarmungslosen Schilderung psychopathologischer Zustände und der Vordergründigkeit des Sexuellen jedoch kontrovers diskutiert wurde. Seit 1922 arbeitete der promovierte Jurist als Legationsrat an der teschechoslowakischen Botschaft in Berlin, später als Ministerialkommissar im Prager Außenministerium. Er starb 1929 an einem zu spät behandelten Blinddarmdurchbruch in einem Prager Krankenhaus. Widmungsexemplare Ungars sind aufgrund seiner Außenseiterstellung im Literaturbetrieb selten. Papierbedingt gering gebräunt, insgesamt handelt es sich jedoch um ein gut erhaltenes Exemplar seines spätexpressionistsichen Hauptwerks mit allenfalls leichten Gebrauchsspuren.
