        America. 13 Etchings by Rafaello Busoni

      - Berlin: [for Rafaello Busoni], 1924. Folio, original portfolio of 3/4 vellum over marbled boards, front cover gilt-lettered. Thirteen original, signed etchings, each in passepartout mat, + title & text leaves, each with a signed, etched vignette + List of Plates + colophon leaf signed and numbered by the artist + blank guard leaf bearing later, non-authorial inscription. Portfolio rubbed and flaps reinforced with archival tape; the contents very good. First Edition; # 47 of 70 copies with the etchings printed on Zander vellum, of a total edition of 110 copies. Despite his resoundingly Italian name, Rafaello Busoni (1900-1962) was a German Jew born in Berlin. In 1939 he emigrated to the United States, where he worked in New York as a painter, printmaker, writer, and illustrator. He illustrated many children's books and several publications of the Limited Editions Club. When in his early 20's he produced this remarkable portfolio of images of America, he had never actually seen the place. As he states in his prefatory note, the etchings were intended not to be "mere illustrations of the american history, but rather an interpretation of the development of the american continent from the early days of Columbus to its present might. I endeavored to render the spirit of the various epochs and to recreate their atmosphere." Thus the images are largely imaginary, but they are powerful and evocative nonetheless. OCLC locates a single copy of this work, evidently with a German title and text, at the New York Public Library. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1924. No. 111 OF 500 COPIES OF THE EDITION DELUXE, SIGNED BY THE ARTIST n. Hardcover. 318 x 260 mm (12 1/2 x 10 1/4"). 197 pp. No. 111 OF 500 COPIES OF THE EDITION DELUXE, SIGNED BY THE ARTIST. Publisher's deluxe binding of full vellum, upper cover with gilt-embossed vignette (replicating the title page), flat spine with gilt tree at foot and gilt titling at head, top edge gilt. Engraved illustrated title page, engraved tailpieces, 16 full-page black and white engravings, and 12 color plates by Kay Nielsen. Front free endpaper with remnants of bookplate. Hint of splaying to boards, gilt on spine a little muted, otherwise only the most trivial imperfections; a nearly fine copy, very clean and fresh inside and out. This appealing edition of fairy tales by Hans Christian Andersen is illustrated by his fellow Dane, Kay Nielsen, whose popularity during the early 20th century "golden age of illustration" rivaled that of Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac. Born in Copenhagen to a theatrical family, Nielsen (1886-1957) studied art in Paris, where he became quite interested in Japanese and Chinese paintings. The influence of those styles can be seen in the color plates here, while the monochrome works are reminiscent of illustrations by Aubrey Beardsley. When the popularity of extravagantly illustrated gift books began to fade in the 1930s, Nielsen moved to California, where he worked for Disney Studios, contributing illustrations for "Fantasia" and other animated films. The tales collected here include "The Real Princess" (better known as "The Princess and the Pea"), "The Snow Queen," "The Red Shoes," and "The Nightingale," Andersen's tribute to the famed Swedish singer Jenny Lind, who had gently rebuffed the lovestruck writer's advances.

        Set of Eleven Photographic Negative Prints of Hands.

      Berlin c.-1930 1924 - Photographic negative prints of Paul Wolff, Theodor Echtermeyer, Peter Schmidt, Alexander von Rothe, Eugen Fischer, Prof.Dr. Ludwig Heck, Wilhelm Filchner, Prof. Hans Friedenthal, N.N. Godbole, Alfons Goldschmidt and August von Parseval hands. Size: 21.cmm by 17.4cm approx. Collected by German palmist Marianne Raschig who spent 60 years taking more than 2,000 hand prints of around 1,000 leading artists, actors, scientists, musicians and writers in Berlin. Raschig collected the hand prints between the 1870s and 1930s for a study into what the lines and shapes of hands could reveal about a person's character. Palm readers believe that every person's hands has a series of 'lines' and 'mounts' which reveal their personality traits and even predict their future. Raschig published her study in a 1931 book Hand und Persönlichkeit (Hand and Personality) which is still used today.
