"In the second issue, which is billed as such, the portrait drawing on the title has been replaced with a photograph." Website of the Arnold Schoenberg Center, Vienna. Erich Itor Kahn (1905-1956) studied at the Hoch'sches Konservatorium in Frankfurt. An early champion of Schoenberg, he gave the world premiere of the composer's piano piece op. 33a; he also studied the present op. 23 cycle early on. The notational corrections are of particular interest. The waltz concluding the cycle, first sketched in 1921, is considered the earliest example of Schoenbergian twelve-note composition.

        The Eleventh Virgin

      New York: Albert and Charles Boni, 1924. 312, [i]p., first edition, first printing, original blue cloth with minor edge wear and slight bumping of corners, spine lettering slightly dulled, previous owner's name (Martha Lauz) on front free endpaper in light pencil, minor crease to title page, a few pages printed slightly off-center, overall in very good condition. Autobiographical novel by the founder of the Catholic Worker movement, written at the age of 26 in the midst of an already tumultuous life before her conversion to Catholic pacifism. She regretted its publication and later sought to reclaim every copy she could find. Beginning from childhood, the novel incorporates Day's education and activism, experiences working at the Socialist Daily, the New York Call and the Masses (re-titled "The Flame" in the book), and deeply personal affairs including a portrait of Floyd Dell (as Hugh Brace), an account of an abortion, and a final monologue in which the central character realizes that her political activities and modern womanhood have distracted her from her truer goal of loving a man and becoming a mother. Walter Rideout lists this as one of three novels by "tired radicals" in the 1920s, placing it midway along Day's journey "From Union Square to Rome," as she described her path in an essay about her conversion. In his recent introduction to the book, Paul Bowers cites a passage from William Miller's autobiography describing Dorothy Day's feelings about the book half a century after its publication, in 1975: "She held out one book and asked, 'What should I do about this?' I knew the book. It was The Eleventh Virgin, her autobiographical novel. 'It's all true,' she said. It was a book I knew that she hated and would have rejoiced if every copy could have been consumed in flames and then be forever put out of her mind. But now she stood there, holding out to me one of the few copies left. I said nothing. Dorothy was controlled, but I could tell by the pale, taut look in her face that the business of turning all of this material over to me was a moment of great stress and pain for her. She was, in a way, confronting history.

        [GRANDFATHER LENIN]

      Pamiati V.I. Lenina [i.e. In Memory of V.I. Lenin]. [N.p., 1920s]. 11 pp.: ill. 21,5x18 cm. Handwritten school notebook. Small tears of the covers, otherwise very good. The unique survival of the time. Watercolor picture of Lenin as a child is on the front cover signed by child's hand (V. Antonovich) as well as the title ''In Memory of V.I. Lenin'' and ''#1'' at the top. Notebook includes 6 children's poems, each signed, and 6 drawings in pencil and watercolor paint. The first poem is dated (30th of January, Friday) and a title ''Behind the Lenin's Coffin''. Vladimir Lenin died on the 21st of January in 1924 and was put in a mausoleum 6 days later. So these poems are composed and written short after that and full of sorrow and grief. Lenin was considered a leader of the proletariat and father of a young Soviet country. 'Grandfather' Lenin was the primary source, challenging the authority of which would put the whole communist system under attack unlike the challenge to Stalin's authority was put at stake only by the totalitarian regime (Lenin fought for the revolution, and 'Koba' - for power). Throughout existence of Soviet Union children were taught respect and love for 'grandfather' Lenin, not Stalin. There are three portraits of a young Lenin in the notebook and all of them have a resemblance with Parkhomenko's drawing from a Little Oktobrists five-pointed star badge. In 1923-1924 Little Oktobrists was a name of the children born in 1917, the year of the October revolution. Later the term was used for the youth organization for children between 7 and 9 years of age. Another drawing shows funeral procession. A portrait of a grown Lenin follows the poem titled ''Five Nights and Days'' referring to the time for which the coffin was installed in the Hall of Columns for the official farewell. In general, all poems are gloomy and heavy which was very in tune with the epoch: ''And snowflakes are falling and falling on Lenin's white from the snow coffin''. At the same time the cult of his persona started to flourish even more: ''Lenin is dead - Lenin is alive!''. In the form of a civil religion of national scale, the cult of Lenin spilled out immediately after his death. The task was to establish an emotional connection between people and the party, personified by Lenin. Considerable attention was paid to the propaganda of Leninism among children. The stories of the childhood of an energetic, diligent boy Volodya, who never forgot his duty to the people, were to become a model of behavior for every Soviet child. And the idealized 'Ilyich' - named after his patronymic in order to make it closer and more accessible - served as the personification of the regime in the guise of a smiling good-natured who saved Russia and loved children. It was expected that the children brought up by Leniniana would grow up loyal Soviet citizens, and their youthful love for Lenin in maturity would turn into devotion to the Soviet power. A very interesting detail about mausoleum's drawing in the notebook: the depicted building is the second temporary mausoleum designed by Aleksei Shchusev made out of wood - a documented evidence of the famous architect's work which existed only for 5 years.

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.

        Zapiski poeta. Povest? [Aufzeichnungen eines Dichters. Erzählung].

      Original-Ausgabe. - Selvinsky war einer der bedeutendsten Vertreter des literarischen Konstruktivismus. Die vorliegende Erzählung ist eine Art Autobiographie des Dichters, der seine Verse hier als Werk des imaginären Lyrikers Evgeny Ney publizierte. - Berühmtheit erlangte die kleine Veröffentlichung vor allem durch die prägnante Einbandgestaltung El Lissitzkys. So nutzte er zwei fotografische Porträtaufnahmen, die er 1924 von Hans Arp fertigte, und belichtete die Negative unterschiedlich, so dass die Profilaufnahme heller und die Frontalaufnahme dunkler geriet, schließlich fügte er beide zu einem Doppelporträt zusammen. 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.

Einband fleckig und bestossen. Klammern der Heftung teilweise mit Rostspuren. In den Rändern fingerfleckig. Schug 607. Stuck-Villa II, 241. Doderer 798. Göbels, 100 alte Kinderbücher S. 308ff. (mit Abbildungen). Erste Ausgabe dieses bemerkenswerten Bilderbuches, "vergleichbar dem Werk von El. Lissitzky: Suprematische Erzählungen von zwei Quadraten. - Die Hauptfigur in den Bänden Hilde Krügers ist die Hexe Widiwondel" (H. Göbels). Mit einer ganzseitigen gedruckten Widmung an Arno Holz. Das aus bunten Dreiecken bestehende Bilderbuch Hilde Krügers zählt zu den wenigen kubistisch-konstruktivistischen Kinderbüchern aus der Zeit der Weimarer Republik. „Die Formen der Pflanzen, Tiere und menschenähnlichen Wesen erscheinen, aus bunten Dreiecken zusammengesetzt, fremdartig und bekannt zugleich. Lebendigkeit erhält die starre Welt durch den Betrachter, wenn er die Dreiecksfiguren als lebendig anerkennt. Das grüne Dreieck gewinnt erst Leben, wenn es als Gras oder Busch betrachtet wird, das weiße Dreieck erst als Wolke usw. Diese Dechiffrierung der durch Dreiecke verschlüsselten Formen stellt den kindlichen Betrachter vor die Aufgabe der Abstraktion von der natürlichen Gegenstandsform. Phantasie und Erinnerungsvermögen sind gefragt. In einigen gelingt es Hilde Krüger, eine Spannung zu erzeugen, die das Betrachten zum Abenteuer macht."

        When We Were Very Young WITH: Winnie-The-Pooh WITH: Now We Are Six WITH: The House At Pooh Corner With Decorations by Ernest H Shepard

      London: Methuen & Co., Ltd, 1924-1928. First editions of each work in Milne's Pooh quartet. Octavo, original cloth, pictorial endpapers, top edge gilt. Now We Are Six signed by A.A. Milne on the title page. Each are fine in near fine dust jackets with a touch of rubbing. Now We Are Six is signed by Milne on the title page. Also is an autographed letter signed from Milne on his letterhead attached to the inner box, which reads, "Dear Miss Ross, Here you are- and I'm so glad you liked Sarah Simple. Yours Sincerely A.A. Milne Of Course I remember you!" Housed in a custom full leather box by Zaehnsdorf. Illustrated by Ernest Shepard. An exceptional set. Although Alan Alexander Milne wrote novels, short stories, poetry and many plays for adults, in addition to his work as assistant editor for Punch from 1906 to 1914, it is his writings for children that have captured the hearts of millions of people worldwide and granted Milne everlasting fame" (Silvey, 461). Milne wrote most of these poems at the request of friend and fellow poet Rose Fyleman, who was planning a new children's magazine. "On a rain-blighted holiday in Wales, [Milne] escaped from the crowd of fellow guests to the summerhouse, and for 11 days wrote a set of children's verses, one each day... 'There on the other side of the lawn was a child with whom I had lived for three years [his son, Christopher Robin]... and here within me were unforgettable memories of my own childhood.' He added more verses when he got home, enough for a book, and allowed some to be published in advance in Punch" (Carpenter & Prichard, 351). Shepard, a Punch staff artist at the time, provided delightful line vignettes, resulting in "a wonderful marriage of verse and vision. His delicately precise and fresh drawings had an instant appeal" (DNB). When We Were Very Young is second issue, as usual, with page ix numbered.

        The Eleventh Virgin

      New York: Albert and Charles Boni, 1924. 312, [i]p., first edition, first printing, original blue cloth with minor edge wear and slight bumping of corners, spine lettering slightly dulled, previous owner's name (Martha Lauz) on front free endpaper in light pencil, minor crease to title page, a few pages printed slightly off-center, overall in very good condition. Autobiographical novel by the founder of the Catholic Worker movement, written at the age of 26 in the midst of an already tumultuous life before her conversion to Catholic pacifism. She regretted its publication and later sought to reclaim every copy she could find. Beginning from childhood, the novel incorporates Day's education and activism, experiences working at the Socialist Daily, the New York Call and the Masses (re-titled "The Flame" in the book), and deeply personal affairs including a portrait of Floyd Dell (as Hugh Brace), an account of an abortion, and a final monologue in which the central character realizes that her political activities and modern womanhood have distracted her from her truer goal of loving a man and becoming a mother. Walter Rideout lists this as one of three novels by "tired radicals" in the 1920s, placing it midway along Day's journey "From Union Square to Rome," as she described her path in an essay about her conversion. In his recent introduction to the book, Paul Bowers cites a passage from William Miller's autobiography describing Dorothy Day's feelings about the book half a century after its publication, in 1975: "She held out one book and asked, 'What should I do about this?' I knew the book. It was The Eleventh Virgin, her autobiographical novel. 'It's all true,' she said. It was a book I knew that she hated and would have rejoiced if every copy could have been consumed in flames and then be forever put out of her mind. But now she stood there, holding out to me one of the few copies left. I said nothing. Dorothy was controlled, but I could tell by the pale, taut look in her face that the business of turning all of this material over to me was a moment of great stress and pain for her. She was, in a way, confronting history."

        Les Biches - INSCRIBED TO HIS PUBLISHER

      Au Ménestrel [.] Heugel, Paris 1924 - Piano and vocal score to the important French composer's ballet Les Biches, signed and inscribed by the composer on the half-title to the publisher, Jacques Heugel, and dated 1924. Poulenc has penned (translated from the French): "To monsieur Jacques Heugel with all my thanks for the lovely presentation of this score and my best wishes--Francis Poulenc, 1924." [PN] H. 28,730. 96 pp. Softcover. Stamped on the cover by Heugel Archives. Large tape repair to the spine, with tape exposed in the gutter; some edge wear and toning; overall very good. 9.75 x 12.25 inches (25 x 31.5 cm).In 1924, the 25-year-old Poulenc was commissioned by Diaghilev to compose a piece based on Glazunov's "Les Sylphides." Instead, the young composer produced a work based on the paintings of Watteau depicting Louis XIV and various women in his "Parc aux Biches." (The word biche is usually translated as "doe," an adult female deer, but "does" was used as a slang for coquettish women.) Poulenc described his work as "a contemporary drawing room party suffused with an atmosphere of wantonness, which you sense if you are corrupted, but of which an innocent-minded girl would not be conscious." Diaghilev recognized the great potential of the ballet and produced it for the 1924 Ballet Russes season, bringing Poulenc into the forefront of French music. In "The Rest is Noise" (2007), Alex Ross notes that "Poulenc would write more substantial scores - he had the richest, most surprising career of any of Les Six - but Les Biches retains its nasty champagne kick after all these years." Jacques Heugel (1890-1979), the third generation to run the venerable Éditions Heugel, was responsible for bringing some of the most important French composers of the early twentieth century under the publisher's wing. The composers he brought to the publisher included Georges Auric, Reynaldo Hahn, Francis Poulenc, Franz Schmitt, Jacques Ibert, Darius Milhaud and André Jolivet.

        Zapiski poeta. Povest? [Aufzeichnungen eines Dichters. Erzählung].

      Original-Ausgabe. - Selvinsky war einer der bedeutendsten Vertreter des literarischen Konstruktivismus. Die vorliegende Erzählung ist eine Art Autobiographie des Dichters, der seine Verse hier als Werk des imaginären Lyrikers Evgeny Ney publizierte. - Berühmtheit erlangte die kleine Veröffentlichung vor allem durch die prägnante Einbandgestaltung El Lissitzkys. So nutzte er zwei fotografische Porträtaufnahmen, die er 1924 von Hans Arp fertigte, und belichtete die Negative unterschiedlich, so dass die Profilaufnahme heller und die Frontalaufnahme dunkler geriet, schließlich fügte er beide zu einem Doppelporträt zusammen. 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.

        THE ROAD TO EN-DOR

      E. P. Dutton & Company 1924 - 8vo, pp. 396. The corners are bumped and the cloth is a bit soiled. Hinges tight and endpapers clean - a good plus copy. No dust jacket. Vance (1879-1933) was an American novelist best known for his character Michael Lanyard, aka "The Lone Wolf", who was featured in eight books and 24 films between 1917 and 1949. Vance - a mystery writer - died a mysterious death. Shortly after separating from his wife of 35 years, he was found dead in his apartment, sitting in a partially burnt armchair - only the upper half of which had caught fire. He was known to be a heavy smoker, and had a high alcohol content in his body. One theory of how the fire started was spontaneous combustion of Vance's body, but neither this theory, nor any other, was conclusive in establishing how the fire started. This is a scarce title with a mysterious printing history. It is usually thought that the first printing appeared in January, 1925, with at least four more printings that year. However, prior to 1929, Dutton had no definate scheme to identify first editions, although Zempel & Verkler quotes a 1928 publisher's statement that: "Recently, a copyright notice behind a title-page, on which nothing occurs but that, is an indication it is a first." Our copy states that the book is "Copyright, 1923-1924". The list of titles, facing the title page, shows 23 titles, although by 1925 Vance (a prolific writer) was known to have published 25 titles. Our research indicates that this title was serialized from October, 1923, to January, 1924, in a women's magazine, and this may explain the curious copyright notice. It is, therefore, almost certain that our copy precedes one with a copyright notice dated 1925, and is thus the true first edition.

        ORIGINAL ARTWORK FOR "THE CLUE OF THE PIN-UP GIRL". A SEXTON BLAKE LIBRARY TITLE

      Unknown Artist, n. d. (ca 1924)., N. P. - Original 11 1/2" x 15" colorful image, tastefully matted to 18 1/2" x 22" size. Included with the artwork is a copy of the actual book written by Walter Tyrer and titled The Clue Of The Pin-Up Girl and is Sexton Blake Library publication number 351, a digest-size paperback original. Sexton Blake is a fictional character, a detective who has been featured in many British comic strips, novels and dramatic productions since 1893. Sexton Blake adventures were featured in a wide variety of British and international publications (in many languages) from 1893 to 1978, comprising more than 4,000 stories by some 200 different authors. Blake was also the hero of numerous silent and sound movies, radio serials, and a 1960s ITV television series. The first issue of The Sexton Blake Library was published on 20 September 1915, entitled "The Yellow Tiger" and written by G.H. Teed. Sexton Blake was known as "The Poor Man's Sherlock Holmes," and many of the Sexton Blake stories rival the Sherlock Holmes stories in their quality, yet Holmes has remained in the public eye while Blake has been allowed to slip into obscurity by all except for a few devotees. This is a fine, bright piece of original artwork, suitable to be framed. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
