        Mark Twain's Autobiography [WITH SLIPCASE]

      New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1924. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Good. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. 755 pp. Two-volume set with dust jackets and scarce slipcase. First edition, first printing of Mark Twain's famous autobiography which has very recently been re-released with copious notes; although many believe Mark Twain wished his autobiography to not be published until 100 years after his death, his friend and literary executor at the time, Albert Bigelow Paine, clearly felt differently as this set was initially published in 1924, only 14 years after his death. It was felt this was sufficient time to honour his actual request that they not be published until "long after" his death. ***DESCRIPTION: Bound in navy blue cloth, facsimile signature in gilt on the front boards, gilt lettering on the spines, top edges gilt, frontispiece in each volume a different sepia-toned photogravure of Twain, title pages in red and black; octavo size (approximately 9.25" tall), pagination: Volume I, (i)-xvi, (1)-368; Volume II, (i-iv), 1-365, followed by 2 pages of publisher's ads. Dust jackets are of light blue with midnight blue lettering, the frontispiece from Volume I serving on both jackets as an illustration on the front, publisher's ad on the back panel for "Important Biographies", summary of book on front flap, publisher's ad on back flap. Slipcase also covered in light blue paper, both sides mirror the front of the dustjackets. ***CONDITION: Both volumes are near fine, with strong, square text blocks, solid hinges, straight corners with a hint of rubbing (if any), and the interiors are clean and bright; there is a slight amount of rubbing to the head and tail of the spines and some foxing to the gutter margins of the endpapers. The fragile dust jackets, which we paired to the books from another set, are good only with substantial wear and some sunning; Volume I is missing the top half of the spine and the back panel is detached from the remainder of the spine; the jacket for Volume II is missing a chip out of the head of the spine. The slipcase is good plus, with all pieces being present; there is overall wear and some soiling, and some of the seams are beginning to split. ***CITATION: BAL #3537; on copyright page: "First Edition" with code letters "H - Y", State A with Vol. 1 frontispiece, printed tissue inserted and Vol. 2, two pages of advertisements followed by a blank leaf. ***POSTAGE: Please note that due to the size and weight of this work additional postage may apply; we are happy to ship at cost to both domestic and international addresses, please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        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.

        Complete set of 1st Belgrade surrealist magazine

      SVEDOCANSTVA [Testimonies]. Knjizevni casopis izlazi desetodnevno [Literary magazine published every 10 days]. Ed. by Djordje Djordjević. No. 1-8. Beograd: (Rodlojub [Patriot]) 1924/25. Gr. 8° (22,5-24,5:17,5 cm). 16 p. each. Original publisher's pictorial wrapper, every volume on differently coloured stock and cover design. Complete set of this first collective publishing adventure of the later Belgrade surrealists around Marko Ristić (who contributed the first Serbian text written according the the rules of »écriture automatique« titled „Example" (no. 3), Dušan Matić, Milan Dedinac, Mladen Dimitrijević and Aleksandar Vučo, as well as some affiliated progressive poets like Moni de Buli (Monny de Boully), Rastko Petrović and others. As the title of the review suggests »Svedocanstva« should deliver testimonies to the contemporary developments in Serbian arts and society but also abroad, containing poetry, essays, short prose, letters as well as documents. Printed in 1.000 copies each (nevertheless hard to find today in complete sets) the issues of this magazine document early established and close ties to the French surrealist movement, whose periodical »La Révolution surréaliste« is promoted (no. 1). Matić, a professor of philosophy and major theoretical proponent of the Belgrade movement, and the poet Moni de Buli later signed the French surrealist's declaration „La révolution d'abord et toujours" in 1925. Additionally »Svedocanstva« contains translations of works by foreign modernist poets like Aleksandar Block (no. 2). Each issue of the magazine is devoted to a single subject, e.g. on art brute or primitive art (created by lunatics or children, no. 6), on dreaming, as one of the surrealist's main topics, etc. Together the set shows a unity in message and artistical, literary as well as philosophical activity of the Belgrade group and their relations the international avant-gardes. The visual material reproduced in »Svedocanstva« (where of 5 plates, 1 inserted) consists of e.g. the picture novel „Vampir" (later reprinted in full length in »La Révolution surréaliste« (Oct. 1925), numerous reproductions of comic like drawings and also of some photographies made by Rastko Petrović showing tattooed outlaws (prisoners, prostitutes etc.) The rear cover incorporates a reproduction of a design by Picasso, drawn on a post-card especially for and dedicated to the editor's board of »Svedocanstva« and later sent to Belgrade. Attached: Advertising leaflet for »Svedocanstva«. 22:12,3 cm. Black offset print on one side on yellow stock. Rear cover of no. 1 with on small fault (not inflicting text or illustration), margins and paper slightly time stained, staples and paper around it in parts rusty, otherwise well preserved, mainly uncut set of this rare and important magazine with surrealist tendencies avant la lettre. Centre Pompidou, ed.: Le Fonds Destribats, 2011, no. 222; Antiquariaat Vloemans, Catalogue 129, no. 224; Kapidzic-Osmanagić, Hanifa: Le surréalisme serbe 1968, p. 76-98; Tijardović-Popović: Photography in Serbian Surrealism 2002, S. 46f.; Todić, Nemoguče 2002, S. 164f.

        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.

        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.
