Its success took the publishers completely by surprise as it reportedly sold out on its publishing day and was reprinted three times in one month. It has been referred to as the most significant children's book since Alice.

        Portfolio of Seven Photogravure Plates from Photographs by Robert J. Flaherty of Eskimos.

      Revillion Freres [ca. 1924], New York - A published portfolio of photogravures of Eskimos in the sub-arctic part of Eastern Canada. Images approx. 22 x 16 cm. on sheets 50 x 33 cm. (19 3/4 x 13 inches), with captions on attached slips. Loose images along with tissue interleaves and printed introductory sheet, set in gray boards folding box. Scarce portfolio of seven images which were chosen from a group of 18 that were made during a series of five expeditions over eight years. The images are: Nascaupie Indian Chief, Northern Labrador; Tooktoo (the Deer), Chief of Sikoslingmuit Eskimos, Southern Baffin Island; Cunayou (The Sculpin), Sikoslingmuit Eskimo Girl, Southern Baffin Island, The Gramophone, Nyla and Child, Eteeveemuit Eskimo of Cape Dufferin, Northwestern Ungava, The Huskie (The Wolf Dog of the Eskimos). Generally this portfolio is found with 6 photogravures; why this one has seven is not clear. Attached box lid with a couple of joint splits and two blank tissue guards with wrinkles but overall a very handsome and clean set in the original box.This gathering is unusual in that all of the images are of Inuits (other than the Husky); there are no nature scenes. Laid in is a business card from Thierry Mallet, president on Revillon Freres, on which Mallet has written in ink ÒDear Doctor Bancroft, may I send you these few photos of the North with my compliments, [signed] Thierry MalletÓ. Both of the famous Bancrofts, Hubert Howe and Albert Little, were dead at this time. It is possible that it was given to the Dr. Bancroft that was head of Geology at the University of British Columbia Vancouver at that time. author of Plain Tales of the North and Glimpses of the Barren Lands, both published by Revillon Freres. Mallet was associated with Revillon Freres for over 20 years and was quite the arctic adventurer himself. Every year he spent three months in the far north among the Inuit arranging fur purchases. Robert J. Flaherty is often credited as being the father of documentary filmmaking. From 1910 to 1916 he served as a guide for the mapping expeditions of Sir William McKenzie to Hudson's Bay. It was during one of these trips that Flaherty decided to make a film of the land and people he had become so familiar with. His first film as accidentally destroyed but the seed had been planted and in 1922 he finished his first documentary, Nanook of the North. It won universal acclaim and is usually referred to as the first documentary film. Driven by the acclaim, Flaherty went on to make a number of other documentaries but he still is best known for Nanook. Flaherty made different financial arrangements for all his films and Nanook was made under the aegis of Revillon Freres, a large fur trading company. This production was probably issued by Revillon Freres to cash in on Flaherty's abrupt rise in fame.

        Insectes: a Set of Four Hand-Coloured Lithographs.

      Paris Du Chartre et van Buggenhoudt 1924 - Set of four lithographs hand coloured en pochoir. Superb lithographs by the master of the format. "In comparison with their variety and brilliance, much Art Deco illustration seems pallid and constrained. And of course their large format makes them particularly attractive for exhibition purposes" (Ray, The Art Deco Book in France). E.A. Seguy (1889-1985), was active as an artist in Paris from 1900 to 1925. His mastery of decorative design and colour is evident in the series of 11 beautiful pochoir portfolios he created. Unusual in his capacity to span the Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods, Seguy's portfolio's remain exquisite examples of ornamentation and composition, featuring motifs based on the natural world, including flowers, foliage, crystals and animals.

        L'AN PROCHAIN A JERUSALEM [NEXT YEAR IN JERUSALEM]

      Paris: Plon-Nourrit et Cie, 1924. FIRST EDITION. No. 9 OF 50 COPIES of the deluxe edition on Chine, from a total edition of 1,700 copies (and 62 hors commerce copies). This is a beautifully bound, deluxe presentation copy of a work the "Encyclopedia Judaica" calls "an enthusiastic survey of Zionism's spiritual and messianic roots." The title here is a phrase from the liturgies of Passover and Yom Kippur familiar to all members of the Jewish faith, a prayer/wish to celebrate the holy day "next year in Jerusalem," returning to the Promised Land. Here, however, the brothers Tharaud disparage "those Western Jews who were happy to dispatch their [Eastern European] brethren to a Promised Land with which they themselves felt only nominal links." (Ency. Judaica) The French novelists and essayists Jérôme (1874-1953) and Jean (1877-1952) Tharaud wrote both fiction and non-fiction on Jewish themes, seeking to inform Gentile readers about Judaism, Jewish traditions, and life in Eastern European ghettoes. Their view of Zionism changed in the decade after this work was published, and they eventually embraced the idea of enforced separation of Jewish and gentile societies. Our skilled and imaginative binder Kauffmann established premises in Paris in 1875. François Horclois, son of binder Jules Horclois, married Kauffmann's daughter, joined the firm, and succeeded his father-in-law after Kauffmann's death in 1929. François continued to operate the bindery until 1961, when he died at age 82. The example of his work pictured by Duncan & De Bartha (p. 96) displays the distinctive marbling and modelling techniques used here to such pleasing effect.. 198 x 130 mm. (7 3/4 x 5 1/8"). 4 p.l., 305 pp., [1] leaf. FIRST EDITION. No. 9 OF 50 COPIES of the deluxe edition on Chine, from a total edition of 1,700 copies (and 62 hors commerce copies). HANDSOME MOTTLED CALF, GILT AND INLAID, BY KAUFFMANN-HORCLOIS (stamp-signed on verso of front flyleaf), upper cover with modelled and inlaid Grolieresque strapwork, some of the compartments formed by the straps tooled with blind rules, others with stippled gilt, smooth spine with vertical gilt titling, turn-ins with multiple gilt rules, patterned silk endleaves, marbled flyleaves, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed. Original wrappers bound in. HALF TITLE WITH AUTHORS' PRESENTATION INSCRIPTION (the ink bleeding through slightly onto title page). Mahé III, 506; Encyclopedia Judaica XV, 1048. Front board just slightly bowed, silk endleaves fraying slightly and beginning to lift at edges, otherwise a fine copy, clean and bright inside and out. This is a beautifully bound, deluxe presentation copy of a work the "Encyclopedia Judaica" calls "an enthusiastic survey of Zionism's spiritual and messianic roots."

Als Hintergrund verwandte er die Dada-Zeitschrift 391, auf den Hemdkragen ließ er den Namen des imaginären Dichters setzen. - Erschienen in einer Aulage von dreitausend Exemplaren. - Die häufig fehelnde Faltkarte hier mit Einriss, sonst hervorragend erhaltenes Exemplar. - Lissitzky-Küppers 121. - Kat. Sprengel Museum 218. - Bowlt/Hernad 73. - Kat. MoMa 750. - Andel, Avantgarde Pagedesign 252.

        L'AN PROCHAIN A JERUSALEM. [NEXT YEAR IN JERUSALEM]

      Plon-Nourrit et Cie, Paris 1924 - 198 x 130 mm. (7 3/4 x 5 1/8"). 4 p.l., 305 pp., [1] leaf. FIRST EDITION. No. 9 OF 50 COPIES of the deluxe edition on Chine, from a total edition of 1,700 copies (and 62 hors commerce copies). HANDSOME MOTTLED CALF, GILT AND INLAID, BY KAUFFMANN-HORCLOIS (stamp-signed on verso of front flyleaf), upper cover with modelled and inlaid Grolieresque strapwork, some of the compartments formed by the straps tooled with blind rules, others with stippled gilt, smooth spine with vertical gilt titling, turn-ins with multiple gilt rules, patterned silk endleaves, marbled flyleaves, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed. Original wrappers bound in. HALF TITLE WITH AUTHORS' PRESENTATION INSCRIPTION (the ink bleeding through slightly onto title page). Mahé III, 506; Encyclopedia Judaica XV, 1048. Front board just slightly bowed, silk endleaves fraying slightly and beginning to lift at edges, otherwise a fine copy, clean and bright inside and out. This is a beautifully bound, deluxe presentation copy of a work the "Encyclopedia Judaica" calls "an enthusiastic survey of Zionism's spiritual and messianic roots." The title here is a phrase from the liturgies of Passover and Yom Kippur familiar to all members of the Jewish faith, a prayer/wish to celebrate the holy day "next year in Jerusalem," returning to the Promised Land. Here, however, the brothers Tharaud disparage "those Western Jews who were happy to dispatch their [Eastern European] brethren to a Promised Land with which they themselves felt only nominal links." (Ency. Judaica) The French novelists and essayists Jérôme (1874-1953) and Jean (1877-1952) Tharaud wrote both fiction and non-fiction on Jewish themes, seeking to inform Gentile readers about Judaism, Jewish traditions, and life in Eastern European ghettoes. Their view of Zionism changed in the decade after this work was published, and they eventually embraced the idea of enforced separation of Jewish and gentile societies. Our skilled and imaginative binder Kauffmann established premises in Paris in 1875. François Horclois, son of binder Jules Horclois, married Kauffmann's daughter, joined the firm, and succeeded his father-in-law after Kauffmann's death in 1929. François continued to operate the bindery until 1961, when he died at age 82. The example of his work pictured by Duncan & De Bartha (p. 96) displays the distinctive marbling and modelling techniques used here to such pleasing effect.

        Panorama de Paris ». Raoul DUFY.

      Paris 1924 - Photomontage de 1924, composé de 4 tirages photographiques d'époque (33,2 x 26,4 cm) (bandes verticales : 4 x 26,4 x 8,3 cm) contrecollés sur une feuille cartonnée couleur gris taupe (35,4 x 42,8 cm) / Vintage photomontage of 1924, composed of 4 vintage photographic prints (vertical stripes 4 x 26,3 x 8,3 cm) glued on a taupe gray cardboard sheet (35,4 x 42,8 cm). [.] Alors que les Gobelins se renouvelaient, la Manufacture de Beauvais, sclérosée, travaillait sempiternellement sur les mêmes cartons. Tout change avec la nomination de Jean Ajalbert, avocat, écrivain et critique d'art, en 1917, à la tête de ladite Manufacture. « Regretteur du passé ? », disait-il, « Non. A tout le connu, je préfère le nouveau ». Il sollicite le peintre Raoul Dufy dans les années 20 pour travailler à Beauvais. Le peintre s'était intéressé dès 1911 à l'art textile en réalisant pour le couturier Paul Poiret ses premiers tissus imprimés. C'est avec cet ensemble que le peintre aborde, en 1924, la technique de la Tapisserie. [.] Le paravent à quatre feuilles, un panorama de la capitale ("Panorama de Paris", 1924-1933) ou un plan tel qu'aurait pu l'imaginer un enfant émerveillé, rend un hommage appuyé à la Tour Eiffel, traitée ici comme « un objet-souvenir », thème de prédilection aussi des artistes des Années folles, qu'elle continue d'enchanter. Qu'on songe, parmi d'autres, et après Apollinaire, à Delaunay, à Chagall ou à Cocteau. L'originalité créative de Malraux à La Lanterne aura été l'aménagement d'un Salon de Musique inédit et tout à fait étranger à « l'esprit des lieux ». Création pour lui a toujours rimé avec rébellion. Dès la mi-septembre 1962 en effet, le Mobilier national livre, sur sa demande, au Pavillon de La Lanterne « l'Ensemble mobilier Paris » de Raoul Dufy : un paravent, un canapé, deux grands fauteuils, quatre petits fauteuils et quatre chaises qui stagnaient depuis 1933 dans les réserves. Malraux quitte La Lanterne à l'automne 1967 pour rejoindre Louise de Vilmorin à Verrières-le Buisson, les Antimémoires achevés. L'Ensemble « Paris » sera rendu au Mobilier national le 2 avril 1969, comme en témoigne un reçu des archives. [.] Françoise Theillou : « Malraux décorateur : un Salon de musique pour La Lanterne ». [.] Poiret a fait la connaissance de DUFY en 1910 alors que ce dernier travaillait à la réalisation de bois gravés destinés à illustrer « Le bestiaire ou cortège d'Orphée » de Guillaume Apollinaire. C'était le premier travail du genre que réalisait le peintre. Pour un coup d'essai ce fut un coup de maître qui laissa Poiret admiratif. L'idée d'une collaboration avec le peintre germa tout naturellement dans l'esprit du couturier. A peine pensée, cette collaboration fut scellée ! Les deux hommes ouvrirent à la fin du printemps 1911 un petit atelier d'impression sur tissu. [.] En 1925 Dufy exécute 14 tentures pour Paul Poiret qui en décore ses trois péniches pour l'exposition internationale des Arts décoratifs. [.] Celles-ci sont aujourd'hui éparpillées à travers le monde. Certaines n'ont jamais réapparu depuis l'exposition. Nous ne pouvons les admirer que sur de vieux clichés en noir et blanc. Les autres sont rarement présentées. L'exposition de 1925 fut un echec pour Poiret. Un echec dont le couturier ne devait jamais vraiment se relever. [.]. David Guillon. Extraits du catalogue dufy-poiret de la Galerie Guillon-Laffaille de 1998 (joint au photomontage). Document unique dédicacé par Raoul Dufy à ses amis Poiret (minimes usure en bord de planche) (provenance certifiant l'originalité de l'oeuvre) / Unique document signed by Raoul Dufy to his friends Poiret (minimal wear on board) (provenance certifying the originality of the work).

      Ivan MILEV, Gestalter: ЕКЪ [Glockengeläut]. Sedmichno ilyustrovano spisanie [Illustrierte Wochenzeitschrift (ab Nr. 2)]. Erscheint jede Woche. Redaktion: [Panteley Mateev] Karasimeonov. 1. Jg., Nr. 1-8 (14. Feb. - 12. April 1924) [Alles]. Mit 5 Umschlagtiteln, davon 2 zweifarbig (mit rot bzw. gelb), und mehreren kalligrafischen Rubrikentiteln nach Tuschzeichnungen von Ivan Milev. Sofia: Verlagsbuchhandlung „Perun" 1924. 4°. 8 ungeheftete Broschuren aus dünnem Zeitungspapier. Vollständiger Satz dieser zwischen Februar und April 1924 in nur 8 Nrn. (= Heften) erschienenen illustrierten, linksgerichteten Kunst- und Kulturzeitschrift modernistischer Prägung, herausgegeben vom Dichter, Publizisten und Filmkritiker Panteley Mateev Karasimeonov (1989-1957). »Ek« brachte literarische und essayistische Beiträge, sowie Kritiken zu gegenwärtigen Tendenzen und Ereignissen von Literatur, Kunst, Theater und vor allem Film, die teils aus der Feder von namhaften Vertretern des Modernismus stammen, u.a. von Svetoslav Minkov und Teodor Trayanov. Außergewöhnlich ist das Periodikum insbesondere dank der abwechslungsreichen, im expressiven Spannungsfeld von Maschinenästhetik, Art Deco-Karikatur und dämonischem Expressionismus angesiedelten Umschlagzeichnungen mit Tusche von Ivan Milev, der wohl insgesamt für die typografische Gestaltung von »Ek« verantwortlich war, wie mehrere in vergleichbarem Stil gezeichnete Rubrikentitel (u.a. „Literatur") vermuten lassen. Diese Arbeiten Milevs, neben Georges Papazov und Khristo der wohl bedeutendste bildende Künstler Bulgariens im 20 Jh., stellen im schmalen Oeuvre des früh Verstorbenen eine Besonderheit dar. Einerseits schafft es Milev einmal mehr mit wenigen Pinselstrichen und lediglich unter Verwendung von schwarzer Tusche der sprichwörtlich „dämonischen", bulgarischen Variante des Expressionismus ein prägnantes Gesicht zu geben. Vergleichbare Zeichnungen entstanden 1922 für den Gedichtband »Arena« von Lamar, die Auswahl »Fantasien« von E. A. Poes Erzählungen (sh. Jacono 13), sowie für die Prosasammlungen »Die blaue Chrysanteme« des „Dämonisten" Svetoslav Minkov und »Tod« von Minkovs Wegbegleiter Vladimir Polyanov (alle Titel in der Slg. H. & H. R.). Andererseits beinhalten die Zeichnungen für »Ek« aber auch für den düsteren Milev ungewöhnliche karikaturistische Nuancen. Die Originalzeichnungen für die Umschläge der Nrn. 1 und 2 von »Ek« wurden von Milev auch signiert. Umschläge der Nrn. 3-7 mit Besitzervermerk, das fragile, teils stark holzhaltige Papier an den Rändern stellenweise mit sehr kleinen Fehlstellen und Einrissen; mehrere Hefte teils fingerfleckig und mit Faltspuren. Von außerordentlicher Seltenheit, die Zeitschrift ist weder in der Bulgarischen Nationalbibliothek vorhanden, noch über OCLC, KVK und Google in irgendeinem institutionellem Bestand weltweit nachweisbar. - Bulgarische Periodika, Annot. Bibl. Verz., 1955; Milev 1994, S. 82, Nrn. 201, 202 u. 203 (Abb. der Umschl. d. Nrn. 2, 3 u. 4).

This is a beautifully bound, deluxe presentation copy of a work the "Encyclopedia Judaica" calls "an enthusiastic survey of Zionism's spiritual and messianic roots." The title here is a phrase from the liturgies of Passover and Yom Kippur familiar to all members of the Jewish faith, a prayer/wish to celebrate the holy day "next year in Jerusalem," returning to the Promised Land. Here, however, the brothers Tharaud disparage "those Western Jews who were happy to dispatch their [Eastern European] brethren to a Promised Land with which they themselves felt only nominal links." (Ency.

Their view of Zionism changed in the decade after this work was published, and they eventually embraced the idea of enforced separation of Jewish and gentile societies.
