        Life Savers Promotional Photo Archive

      1924-1955. A collection of more than 150 promotional photographs and advertising mock-ups of Life Savers Candies from the 1920s to the early 1950s housed in three binders, including magazine spots, signage, counter displays, and in-person sampling, as well as celebrity endorsements and product placement in motion pictures. The photographs measure between 3.5" x 11.5" x 14". Most are loose, with a third of them mounted on artists boards and about a dozen with backmarks from various photographers, such as Guy Gillette, Hyman Fink, and Ewing Galloway. Overall near fine with scattered wear at the corners and creases to several of the oldest images; many of the mounted photographs have been touched up with China white or gray paint to highlight, crop, or remove details for publication, which was typical for print reproduction at that time.Life Savers were a ubiquitous part of American culture during the early and middle parts of the 20th Century and this collection of photographs documents their popularity with numerous signs, window displays, bill boards, bus ads, counter displays, and at point-of-purchase via "sample girls" who distributed the candies in the 1920s dressed in custom Life Savers outfits and with a custom Life Savers car. The collection also features numerous Hollywood stars holding the candy such as Jack Benny, George Raft, Lou Costello, Ralph Edwards, and Edgar Bergen with Charlie McCarthy and Mortimer Snerd. There are also a number of stills that showing the candy in films such as The Crooked Way (1949), Gun Crazy (1950), Red Light (1949), One Too Many (1950), Quicksand (1950), Destination Murder (1950), and A Bullet for Joey (1955).This collection was likely owned by a representative from an advertising agency that worked for the Mint Products Company, which owned Life Savers, or possibly the company's own in-house marketing department. In addition to the advertising mock-ups are photographs of the Mint Products headquarters in Port Charles, New York, and over 30 photographs (and seven negatives) showing the workers and machinery used to produce the candy. A charming collection of vintage advertising image from one of America's most iconic brands. .

        Cyrano - Dessin préparatoire pour la couverture de la revue éponyme EDITION ORIGINALE

      S.l.: S.n., 1924. Fine. S.n., S.l. Circa 1924, Cadre : 31,5x37cm ; dessin : 18,5x22,5cm, une feuille sous marie-louise encadrée. - Original drawing in ink and gouache, recorded in golden frame and mat is signed in the lower right of the sheet. Louis Anquetin, Étrépagny born in 1861 and died in Paris in 1932, is an important French painter. He began his career with avant-garde artists such as Vincent Van Gogh and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. With Emile Bernard, he is the inventor of Cloisonnisme. From 1884 to 1893 Louis Anquetin continues to explore the new possibilities introduced by the release of Impressionism in French painting. From 1893, following a long confrontation with the "old masters", he adopts a bias that will put the painting on the sidelines of the general movement of the art, and will take away from his friends. Dazzled by Baroque art and creative force, he thinks as his childhood friends are engaged in a path that will lead to the death of painting. He believes in a "perfect painting" embodied in the re-remembering the lessons Michelangelo and Rubens among others. His work becomes more classic, it advocates a return to the trade, proposing to reflect on the a priori conditions of any possible form of art while respecting the rules of perspective and anatomy, as practiced by the masters the sixteenth and seventeenth siècle.Ne leaving only a few works that can be described as monumental, Anquetin proves prolific for his many studies and sketches, who considered that the design was "a very powerful means of expression," the mandatory basis for all plastiques.En arts voluntarily working backward of his time, Louis Anquetin made possible the existence of an original modern figuration. By his stubbornness and his passion for painting, he has indeed prevented is completely blocked the path of the great Western tradition. One can admire his works in many prestigious museums such as the Musée d'Orsay and the Louvre in Paris, San Francisco and Detroit, Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the National Gallery and the Tate London, etc. --- Please note that the translation in english is done automatically, we apologize if the formulas are inaccurate. Contact us for any information! - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Dessin originale à l'encre et à la gouache, consigné sous cadre doré et marie-louise, signé au tampon en bas à droite de la feuille. Ce dessin a été réalisé pour la couverture de Cyrano, une revue satirique hebdomadaire publiée entre 1924 et 1940. Louis Anquetin, né à Étrépagny en 1861 et mort à Paris en 1932, est un important peintre français. Il commence sa carrière aux côtés de peintres d'avant-garde tels que Vincent Van Gogh ou Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Avec Émile Bernard, il est l'inventeur du Cloisonnisme. De 1884 à 1893, Louis Anquetin ne cesse d'explorer les possibilités nouvelles offertes par la libération introduite par l'Impressionnisme dans la peinture française. A partir de 1893, à la suite d'une longue confrontation avec les « maîtres d'autrefois », il adopte un parti-pris pictural qui le mettra en marge du mouvement général de l'art, et l'éloignera de ses amis. Ébloui par l'art baroque et sa vigueur créatrice, il pense alors que ses amis de jeunesse se sont engagées dans une voie qui mènera à la mort de la peinture. Il croit en une « peinture parfaite » qui s'incarne dans le re-souvenir des leçons de Michel-Ange et de Rubens notamment. Son travail devient donc plus classique, il prône le retour au métier, en proposant de réfléchir sur les conditions a priori de toute forme d'art possible dans le respect des règles de la perspective et de l'anatomie, telles que pratiquées par les maîtres du XVIème et XVIIème siècle.Ne laissant que quelques œuvres que l'on peut qualifier de monumentales, Anquetin s'avère prolifique par ses nombreuses études et esquisses, lui qui considérait que le dessin était « un moyen d'expression tout puissant », le fondement obligatoire de tous les arts plastiques.En travaillant volontairement à rebours de son époque, Louis Anquetin a rendu possible l'existence d'une figuration moderne originale. Par son obstination et sa passion de la peinture, il a en effet évité que ne soit totalement obturé le chemin de la grande tradition occidentale. On peut admirer ses œuvres dans de nombreux et prestigieux musées comme le Musée d'Orsay ou Le Louvre à Paris, à San Francisco ou à Detroit, au Musée de l'Hermitage de Saint-Petersbourg, à la National Gallery et à la Tate de Londres, etc.

      - Der italienische Komponist Luigi Nono (1924-1990) entstammte einer alteingesessenen venezianischen Familie, studierte Komposition bei Gian Francesco Malipiero am Konservatorium in Venedig u., auf Wunsch des Vaters, Rechtswissenschaften in Padua mit abschließendem Diplom. 1946 lernte er Bruno Maderna kennen, bei dem er privaten Kompositionsunterricht nahm. Beide besuchten 1948 zur Biennale in Venedig einen Dirigierkurs bei Hermann Scherchen, den Nono anschließend auf eine Konzertreise nach Zürich u. Rapallo begleitete. Über Scherchen erhielt Nono Zugang zur deutschen Musiktradition insbesondere zu Musik u. musikalischem Denken der Zweiten Wiener Schule. 1950 nahm er erstmals an den Kranichsteiner/Darmstädter Ferienkursen für Neue Musik teil, wo seine Kanonischen Variationen über eine Reihe von Schönbergs op. 41 unter Scherchens Leitung uraufgeführt wurden. An diesen Kursen nahm er regelmäßig bis 1960 teil, dabei wurden sieben seiner Kompositionen aufgeführt, von 1957 bis 1960 war er dort auch als Dozent tätig. Zusammen mit Karlheinz Stockhausen u. Pierre Boulez galt er in den 1950er Jahren als einer der führenden Vertreter der neuen Seriellen Musik der so genannten Darmstädter Schule. Ab 1960 wandte sich Nono, beginnend mit seiner ersten Tonbandkomposition Omaggio a Emilio Vedova einer bis zu seinem Tode anhaltenden Beschäftigung u. Erforschung mit den Möglichkeiten der Elektronik in der Musik zu. Nono begann im Freiburger Experimentalstudio der Heinrich-Strobel-Stiftung zu arbeiten. Die dort entstandenen Werke bewegen sich zum Teil am Rande des Hörbaren. In den 1970er Jahren hatte Nono den Philosophen Massimo Cacciari getroffen, mit dem er in den folgenden Jahren eng zusammenarbeitete. So stellte Cacciari auch das Textmaterial für Prometeo. Tragödie des Hörens (1984), Nonos letztes großes Musiktheaterprojekt zusammen. (Vgl. Larry Sitsky, Jon. D. Kramer, Music of the twentieth-century Avant-Garde - A Critical Sourcebook, Greenwood Publishing 2002 u. Thom. Licata, Luigi Nonos Omaggio a Emilio Vedova in Thomas Licata, Jean-Claude Risset, Electroacoustic music - Analytical Perspectives. Greenwood Press, 2002).

Johannes Barbarus (pen name of Johannes Vares,1890-1946) was one of the foremost poets of the era, who was a doctor by profession and a radical politician. He was appointed Prime Minister by Zhdanov under the first Soviet invasion in 1940, fled to the USSR when the Germans occupied Estonia and returned in 1945, only to come under suspicion by the NKVD for earlier activity in the Estonian War of Independence. He committed suicide in 1946. Barbarus is an anti-lyricist here, shaking Estonia out of its enclosed sleepy culture into the international arena. Jaan Vahtra (1882-1947) was one of the most original talents of Estonian modern art and a leading member of the GEA movement at the time. This is some of his finest graphic work. A rare and critical document, hailed as one of the most important constructivist manifestos to arise in Estonia, “Estonia’s first pure collection of metropolitan poetry” (Hennoste). No library holdings in North America and only one copy found outside of Estonia.

Papiergesänge 46 (mit Abbildung): "Das Buch versammelt drei von Schwitters selbst verfaßte Kindermärchen... Sie gehören zu den zahlreichen Märchen und Grotesken, die Schwitters - halb aus künstlerischen Gründen, halb aus Geldmangel - in den Jahren 1923-1928 geschrieben hatte. 'Die Märchen vom Paradies' beschreiben das Paradies als die Welt, in der Kinderwünsche wahr werden. Die Protagonisten im Buch entstammen Schwitters' Familien- bzw. Freundeskreis, der Erzählton gleicht dem eines Kindermärchens. Auch die Typographie besorgte Schwitters selbst... Schwitters benutzte verschiedene Drucktypen. Das Format der Buchstaben ist oft sehr groß und lehnt sich an Kinderbücher an. Weiße, leere Flächen auf der Seite sorgen für weitere Abwechslung. Die Zeichnungen von Käte Steinitz wirken leicht, fast improvisiert; sie scheinen rasch auf das Papier geworfen zu sein." - Enhält: 1. Der Hahnepeter - 2. Der Paradiesvogel - 3. Das Paradies auf der Wiese. Der Apossverlag wurde eigens für derartige Publikationen gegründet. Das Akronym "Aposs" steht für Aktiv, paradox, ohne Sentimentalität und sensibel". - Vorliegend die erste Ausgabe dieses berühmten dadaistischen Bilderbuchs mit der in Grun gedruckten Einbandvariante, später wurde die Restauflage mit einem Aufkleber versehen und als Merz-Heft 16/17 (1925/II) angeboten. - Gebräunt.

        Theodore Dreiser's Banned "Genius": A pamphlet defending the work, [with] typescript copy of letter on banned books, two handwritten ALS, and signed personal postcard

      New York:. 1924.. Very good condition. In 1916, Theodore Dreiser's autobiographical novel "Genius", which among other topics, examined traditional and modern views of sexual morality, was deemed blasphemous and obscene by the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, and banned. This pamphlet, written by Elias Rosenthal, defends Dreiser's banned work with specific reference to the overreactions of vice societies to the work: "This brings me down to the action of the locally organized vice society in Cincinnati, which discovered in Theodore Dreiser's "The Genius" seventy five passages which it considered "lewd",and seventeen "profane", all of which when examined proved to be nothing more than accurate comments on passing phases of life. .... what is needed is some strong bug powder, not for the purpose of sterilizing the book, but of dispersing its assailants." The New York Society for the Suppression of Vice threatened to prosecute the publishers on similar grounds. Sml. 8vo pamphlet, (nd) ca. 1915, 8pp. Original yellow wraps; no title at spine, with one horizontal fold and address and canceled stamp at rear cover, o/w very good. Addressed to George Jean Nathan "of the Smart Set", founder and editor of the American Spectator and good friend to Dreiser and Ernest Boyd. The typescript copy of a letter from Dreiser to Gelett Burgess, Vice President of the Authors' League of America attacks the organization for not representing authors in cases of government censorship and banning: "....your organization runs safely and only with those who concern themselves with the safer & more popular forms of light fiction..." (p1). 4pp. 8 1/2 x 11". Additional correspondence, from Dreiser to his friend Ernest Boyd, signed; One page hand written letter signed by Dreiser, dated March 12, 1924, apologizing for missing an engagement, "regards to the Boyd", another addressed to Mrs. Boyd about a gentlemen's dinner, dated Feb. 20- 1925, both from 1799 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn; and a real photo postcard from Trondheim, Norway to Boyd, signed by Dreiser, dated 1924, to Ernest Boyd.

        Life Savers Promotional Photo Archive

      1924-1955. A collection of more than 150 promotional photographs and advertising mock-ups of Life Savers Candies from the 1920s to the early 1950s housed in three binders, including magazine spots, signage, counter displays, and in-person sampling, as well as celebrity endorsements and product placement in motion pictures. The photographs measure between 3.5" x 11.5" x 14". Most are loose, with a third of them mounted on artists boards and about a dozen with backmarks from various photographers, such as Guy Gillette, Hyman Fink, and Ewing Galloway. Overall near fine with scattered wear at the corners and creases to several of the oldest images; many of the mounted photographs have been touched up with China white or gray paint to highlight, crop, or remove details for publication, which was typical for print reproduction at that time.Life Savers were a ubiquitous part of American culture during the early and middle parts of the 20th Century and this collection of photographs documents their popularity with numerous signs, window displays, bill boards, bus ads, counter displays, and at point-of-purchase via "sample girls" who distributed the candies in the 1920s dressed in custom Life Savers outfits and with a custom Life Savers car. The collection also features numerous Hollywood stars holding the candy such as Jack Benny, George Raft, Lou Costello, Ralph Edwards, and Edgar Bergen with Charlie McCarthy and Mortimer Snerd. There are also a number of stills that showing the candy in films such as The Crooked Way (1949), Gun Crazy (1950), Red Light (1949), One Too Many (1950), Quicksand (1950), Destination Murder (1950), and A Bullet for Joey (1955).This collection was likely owned by a representative from an advertising agency that worked for the Mint Products Company, which owned Life Savers, or possibly the company's own in-house marketing department. In addition to the advertising mock-ups are photographs of the Mint Products headquarters in Port Charles, New York, and over 30 photographs (and seven negatives) showing the workers and machinery used to produce the candy. A charming collection of vintage advertising image from one of America's most iconic brands. .

        1924 Ohio Photo Album with Auto Racing Images

      [Elyria, Ohio. 1924]. Oblong large octavo. Leather-textured paper over boards. Commercially produced blank book with "Photographs" in gilt on front board. 61 black and white images. Various sizes, most 2.75" x 4.5". Some sunning, one image is creased, overall very good. Perhaps a quarter of the images are captioned in the margins. Perhaps the most interesting are 18 images are of racing automobiles and their drivers including the Nash pace car; additionally their is a splendid (but unfortunately the aforementioned creased) image of a policeman on an Indian Motorcycle writing a ticket out to a motorist. Other images include additional auto shots, the interior of an Ohio YMCA, Indian teepees, and additional photos of policeman. The owner (and presumably the photographer of most of these images) was named Henry, and there is some evidence he was a policeman. The location of many of the images is in Elyria. Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati. .

        Abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz.

      5, rue Lemercier, Paris Henry Goulet (1924) - Small quarto. (28)ff. One of 495 numbered copies on vergé anglais out of a total edition of 520; this copy is unnumbered. Twenty-six superb pochoir plates by French artist Lucien Laforge. Laforge was born in 1889, the son of a miniature painter and a violinist. Torn between music and drawing, he ultimately settled on a career in design and illustration. Beginning in 1910, he worked for a succession of left-leaning and anarchist newspapers, allowing him to express his own political views. His illustration work for books was done before and after World War I, which he strongly objected to as an adamant pacifist. Laforge's innovative style, influenced by Art Nouveau, is as well suited to the whimsical nature of this children's title as it is to his more political work. For each letter of the alphabet, Laforge accompanies the example with a bright and imaginative illustration in rich color. From "Alchimiste" to "Zèbre," the words are pulled from a variety of sources, both mundane and fantastic. The "Jardinier" watering his cabbages and the regal "Reine" reside alongside the beautiful Turkish "Odalisque" and the dream-like "Fantasmagorie." Inventive and charming, Laforge's effort results in one of the finest French ABC books of the twentieth century. This rare 1924 printing is specially bound in quarter dark purple morocco over marbled boards with gilt title to spine and patterned endpapers designed by Laforge. Original wrappers bound in. Very fine. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        IL TETITEATRO Il teatro d'arte sull'acqua" di Alberto Martini.

      Milano, Bottega di Poesia, 1924. In-folio, mz. tela editoriale (piatto anteriore leggermente sbiadito), pp. (8),99,(5), con 44 ill. in b.n. e 7 a colori (applicate3 su cartoncino), nel testo. Le bellissime composizioni di Alberto Martini rivelano la nuova concezione del "teatro d'arte" sull'acqua ed illustrano l'architettura delle scene per "Le Eumenidi" di Eschilo - la "Salomé" di Wilde e Strauss - "Incantesimo del fuoco" di Wagner - "Macbeth e Amleto" di Shakespeare - "Sogno di un mattino di primavera" di d'Annunzio, ecc. Il testo è una descrizione delle illustrazioni. Questo sogno scenografico del Martini (1876-1954), precursore del Surrealismo, ebbe una certa risonanza, ma non fu applicato. Cfr. Servolini, p. 500. Pregiata edizione di 602 esemplari, ben conservata.
