        Plakat - Mascotte. Buchdruck.

      1924 1924 - 100 x 70 cm, Gefalzt m. zwei kleinen Fehlstellen am Rand (kein Textverlust) Typographisches Plakat des heute noch existierenden, legendären Nachtclubs in Zürich. Mascotte Direction. Otto Neumann-Hofer. Programm vom 16.-bis 31. August 1924. Paul Förster, Improvisator in sechs Sprachen; Otto Adolf Albers, Vortrag und Conférence; La plus grande vedette des Paris - Nina Myral et Robert Burnier dans leur scetch musical: « Oh Chéri? oh! Chérie»; Maria et Marta Doell neue expressionistische Tänze; Lola Abeck Sängerin; Nell Marco, Vortrags-Künstler; Arturo Cuartero, Ténor lirico español; 8 - 12 Uhr Coso-Bar Orchester « Phönix» Zürich bis 11 Uhr. Nina Myral (1884 - 1975) Sängern und Filmschauspielerin. Das heutige Mascotte ist einer der ältesten "Clubs" der Schweiz und daher auch eng mit der Geschichte des berühmten Corso-Hauses und somit auch mit der kulturellen Geschichte Zürichs verbunden.Das Corso-Haus beim Bellevue wurde zur Zeit der Jahrhundertwende gebaut, das Variété eröffnete im April 1900 an zentraler Lage seinen Betrieb. Erst gedacht als Treffpunkt und Clublokal von Vereinen und Zünften wurden schon damals bald neben Theater und allerlei Kleinkunst erste Filme vorgeführt. Schon 1916 wurde ein kleiner Nebensaal des Theaters «Palais Mascotte» genannt. In den zwanziger und dreissiger Jahren traten die bekanntesten Artisten aus Europa und Übersee im Corso auf, unter Ihnen Namen wie Josephine Baker oder der junge Louis Armstrong. Das Innere wurde 1934 total umgebaut. Damals präsentierte sich das Mascotte noch als Wiener Café, ohne den oberen Stock in sehr grosszügigem Art Deco Gewand, mit eleganten Zebra-Design-Sesseln, edlem Parkett, dem berühmten Wandbild von Max Ernst (heute im Kunsthaus zu bewundern) und in äusserst schlichtem weiss. Max Bill gestaltete den heute noch vorhandenen Corso-Schriftzug auf dem Dach. Die fünfziger und sechziger Jahre waren eine Zeit der Big Band Tanzmusik und Live-Konzerte, gefolgt von den ersten Schweizer Go Go Girls. Nach einer Renovation wurde es um 1970 von der Stadt erworben und unter Schutz gestellt. Samy Davis Jr., Hazy Osterwald oder auch Pepe Lienhard traten im «Mascotte» auf - Letzterer übernahm die Bar 1977 zusammen mit Udo Jürgens und Freddy Burger zu einer Zeit als die ersten Disco?s entstanden. Anfangs der Achtzigern war ihr «Mascotte» mit erstem Laser-Licht der Schweiz mit dem später folgenden «Roxy» die unbestritten beliebteste Disco der Stadt. Auch damals hatte man stets Besuch von Stars und Sternchen der nationalen und internationalen Show-Scene.wie Mötley Crue oder Falco. Leider konnte man mit der stets wachsenden Konkurrenz in der Folge nicht mehr mithalten und verschwand im Mittelmass.1995 führte die Eröffnung des Klubs ?Café Grössenwahn? zu kurzfristig guten Zahlen aber leider auch zum vorläufigen Ende der glamourösen Ära. 1997 eröffnete der aufwendig eingerichtete Club Paradise von Coiffeur Valentino. Bereits ein Jahr später wurde aus dem Lokal wiederum das «Mascotte» - nun ein gesichtsloser Klub, der in Zürichs umtriebigem Nachtleben in Vergessenheit geriet. Seit Februar 2004 ist man unter neuer Führung junger Club- und Gastro-Unternehmer nach erfolgreich absolviertem Umbau wieder auf gutem Weg. Mit breitgefächertem Club- und Musik-Programm, internationalen und nationalen Live-Konzerten& DJS, Show-Cases, Lesungen und sonstigen kulturellen Anlässen spricht man wieder ein interessiertes, urbanes Publikum an und knüpft ohne Zweifel wieder an den einstigen Erfolg und Glamour des so geschichtsträchtigen Hauses an. 1100 gr.

      Government Printing Office, Washington, D. C 1924 - Tables; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 157 pages; An important and ground-breaking book in modern Cryptanalysis written by the first user of Statistical Analysis in this area. [Friedman]. "Elements Of Cryptanalysis. 1924. [Military Intelligence]. Elements Of Cryptanalysis. Training Pamphlet No. 3. Prepared in the Office of the Chief Signal Officer May, 1923. Wash: GPO, 1924." 8vo. Orig wraps, with "For Official Use Only" printed at upper left of front wrap, and number "1117" printed at upper corners of wraps and title page. Rubber stamps on front wrap read "Received/ Office of the Commander/ U. S. Atlantic Fleet Train. " and "U. S. S. Lawrence. " The former rubber stamp is discolored (obscuring the word "office"). Notation in lower portion of front wrap is not entirely legible, but appears to be "Office of Comtrain/ 10 April, 1924." Wear in the vicinity of the 2 original holepunches along spine. Lacking the upper and lower 1 ½ inches of spine. Loss at upper right of rear wrap. Other corners of wraps are creased/curled/slightly rounded (with minor effects on corners of first and last leaves). Insecting to upper portion of title and subsequent leaf and to lower margin of first several leaves. Small stain to title. 1st edition. Authored by William F. Friedman of the Signal School at Camp Vail, NJ, this is the first published work to systematize the nomenclature of cryptology, and is the first full-length book to use the term "cryptanalysis" (which Friedman first coined in 1921 or 1922). It is also the first work on codebreaking published by the Federal Government. Aside from providing terminology, it serves as a manual for decoding cryptograms. The terminology and techniques that Friedman describes continue to serve as the basis of cryptology today. Some codes marked in pencil. Charts, codes and tables. A most scarce item. ; 0 [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Le Cercle enchanté: scènes de la vie du boxeur. Texte de Tristan Bernard.

      Paris: Le Goupy, 1924 - Quarto. Original cream wrappers printed in black and red. Housed in a black cloth solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. Loose in the rubbed and rather marked outer wrappers, tanned at the edges and with a split to the lower portion of the front joint. 12 hand-coloured compositions. First edition, first printing, one of 925 numbered copies (of a total edition of 976). With the signed presentation inscription to the half-title, "To Ernest Hemingway from Harold Stearns. Any guy who can write 'My Old Man' deserves this—and plenty of it. Paris, September, 1924". Stearns had been associate editor of The Dial prior to heading to Paris where he wrote of his fellow expatriates, of their lives and their writing. The reference in this inscription is to one of Hemingway's earliest published short stories. Hemingway made great claims for his own pugilistic capacity. Stearns perhaps meant this little picture book to serve as a gentle reminder that writing about the fight game is a good deal less painful than participation in it.

        Dreamlight [Mazda Calendar]

      Edison Mazda; 1924 (copyright); 19" X 8 1/2" - NF. This is a complete 1925 Edison Mazda calendar containing Parrish's delightful image of Dreamlight. Maxfield Parrish furnished paintings for 17 annual Edison Mazda calendars (1918 through 1934), with the earliest calendars being the scarcest and more sought after. Dreamlight is from the middle period, and is a delightful image with deep Parrish blues in the water and background, and the young woman highlighted from light coming through the trees behind her. This is a near mint calendar with a full pad, the calendar itself being very clean and with only the start of a bend the upper 1/2" LH corner of the calendar (not reaching the printing). All pages of the pad are present, with the top 'year' page having a small 1" tear and (as is usually found) some rust coloring around the staples. The color of the calendar is outstanding, as can be seen from the accompanying photos. The calendar had been stored flat until recently, when it was framed (in 2000) to better protect it. The calendar can be removed from the frame, at which time the original Mazda advertising on the reverse side of the calendar (listing and describing all of Parrish's prior calendars - with a small B&W photo of each) can be seen. A truly delightful item for the Parrish collector. TO SEE MORE PICTURES AND ADDITIONAL SPECIAL ITEMS, VISIT OUR BOOKSELLER's HOMEPAGE.

"The importance of the collection of chief manager Ole Olsen in Kopenhagen, which is described by this catalogue to lovers of art and science, consists chiefly in the variety and completeness with regard to the quantity of works of old industrial art. Only a few of the great collections of the old and new continent can rival this collection in extent, quality and variety of the industrial antiquities. Nearly all spheres of artistic work from the prehistorical period to the end of the eighteenth century are represented by characteristic, sometimes excellent works. This work brings to lovers of art and scholars of old industrial art, a catalogue such has not been published since the great catalogues of the Spitzer, Lanna and Morgan collections. Giving the descriptions in Danish, English and German, the possessor and the editor hope to render a service to the science of the history of art." - from Introduction.

Die Frühzeit: Autodidaktentum, Optimismus, psychische Romantik - Anschluss an die Münchner Kunst - Die mittlere Zeit: Strenge und Objektivität. Innerlichkeit und Vereinfachung. Arbeiten in Nürnbergs Umgebung. Einfluss der holländischen Kleinmeister - Der Weltkrieg, Idealismus und deutsche Gesinnung - Ausbildung zeichnerisch-linearer Kräfte -Illustrationen und Gelegenheitsarbeiten - Die jüngste Zeit: Auflösung und malerische Gestaltung.

Vorbildlichkeit und Anregung für eine neue deutsche Kunst. - Mit einem zweiseitigen Verzeichnis der Bilder: mehrfarbige Tafeln in Offsetdruck - mehrfarbige Tafeln in Lichtdruck - zweifarbige Tafeln in Offsetdruck. - Der einleitende Aufsatz des Herausgebers stellt die Kontinuität romantischer Gehalte in der Gegenwartsmalerei am Beispiel von Gradls Zeichnungen in den Vordergrund. - Ganzleder-Vorzugsausgabe in sehr guter Erhaltung. - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag ("Häubchen") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können." Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München, Dienerstrasse 14.

        The Constant Nymph

      Heinemann, London 1924 - First edition, first printing, second issue with the half-title in the second state; in second issue dustwrapper with variant ads on the rear panel (copies of the first printing of the first edition were so altered very early in the distribution process, possibly even before the book was issued, as the additional books added to the advertising were issued at approximately the same time as this title. Copies of the first issue with all points are rare). Modest foxing to the foredge, and some slight rubbing to the boards, else about fine in very good or better dustwrapper with faint splash marks on the spine, a small, faint stain on the front panel, and very small nicks and tears at the spine ends. The author's second novel, a major and surprise bestseller, about an adolescent girl who falls in love with an older composer, who becomes her guardian when he marries her haughty cousin, who in turn is suffused with jealousy over the close relationship between the girl and her husband. Adapted by the author (along with Basil Dean) into a successful play, and filmed at least four times, among them: in 1928 directed by Adrian Brunel and Basil Dean, and featuring Ivor Novello, Mabel Poulton, and Elsa Lancaster; in 1933, again directed by Dean, with Victoria Hopper and Brian Aherne; and probably most memorably in 1943 directed by Edmund Goulding, and featuring Charles Boyer and Joan Fontaine (who was nominated for a Best Actress Academy Award).
