      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]

        The Ocean of Story being C.H. Tawney's Translation of Somadeva's Katha Sarit Sagara (or Ocean of Streams of Story).

      Privately printed from subscribers only by Chas. J. Sawyer, London., 1924. First edition. Edited with an Introduction, Fresh Explanatory Notes and Terminal Essay, by N.M. Penzer. Foreword by Charles Carnac Temple. Royal octavo. Ten volumes. One of 1500 numbered sets. Full black gilt decorated buckram. Top edges gilt. Gilt endpapers. An 11th-century collection of Indian legends, fairy tales and folk tales as retold, in Sanskrit, by a Shaiva monk named Somadeva who took much of his material from earlier sources.

The first Tawney translation appeared in 1880-4 but this edition has been greatly expanded. A monumental work, which bears a striking resemblance to European mediaeval fairy tales, it served as a model for Salman Rushdie's Haroun and the Sea of Stories (1990). Cloth at spine of one of the volumes just a little bubbled. Some light spotting of prelims and edges. A very good set indeed.

        Geomeetriline inimene : V. kogu värsse (Geometrical man : Fifth verse collection)

      Propeller, Tartu 1924 - Estonian language. Enlarged format. Octavo 17 x 25 cm. Weight 320 gr. Wrappers, 109 [3] pp. The Book is in Fine condition without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Minor rubbing to the bottom edge of the cover, very small creaser across bottom right corner of front cover; otherwise perfect condition. Current work is the most substantial example of the expression of the characteristics of modernism and avant-gardism in Estonian literature of the 1920s. The publication became a connecting link between avant-garde art and literature, formulating the aspirations of new art and realising form innovation in poetry on the basis of the main principles of cubism, futurism, constructivism, in which author’s text briliantly complemented by artist’s amazing illustrations. The book includes five cycles of poems by Barbarus “Geometrical Man”, “Human Space”, “Human Time”, “Living Monuments” and “Paris”. Verses connect the philosophical and social ideas of constructivism with simultaniest techniques, presented with futurist-inclined typography. The central place in these collections is given to the big city, as a mean of discovering the world and important sign in the world perception of the Estonian people. It is an euphoric attitude, incited by the establishment of the independent state, a sense of solitude and equality with other peoples and countries. Estonia seemed to enter Europe, the world of the 1920s was open to the new Estonian state, and it was to this that Estonian poetry aspired. Author creates the urban vocabulary (machines, trains, aeroplanes) and uses innovative visual devices that contrast different columns and different fonts to mark the simultaneous world. In adition to the great cover design in best avant-garde traditions, the book decorated with fifteen half-page and one full- page woodcut by Vahtra, all the illustrations are geometric abstractions mostly of human and city. It was artists’s masterful graphic experiment using cubist- constructivist technique. Johannes Barbarus (pseud. of Johannes Vares) (1890-1946) was Estonian greatest modernist poet and radical politician. His style of verses varied greatly during his career as a poet. His early works followed the trends of French expressionism and cubism, later verse took more realistic turn. The modernist poetry of Barbarus in the 1920s constitutes as the most artistically important part of his works and he is an indispensable author on the Estonian field of poetry of that time. Jaan Vahtra (1882–1947) is considered Estonia's most important avant-garde artist. Among all his other achievements he recognized as the man who brought Cubism to Estonia. Most of all valued according to outstanding works in the field of graphics. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        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.

      1924 - Paris, Hors Commerce [Revue Commerce], sans date [1924]. Plaquette in-quarto (190 X 242 mm) brochée ; 38 pages, (1) f. blanc. ÉDITION ORIGINALE de ce texte qui peut être considéré comme LE MANIFESTE SURRÉALISTE D'ARAGON. Il s'agit du tirage à part du numéro II de la revue "Commerce", imprimé sur papier Alfa et au tirage restreint. Ce texte paru la même année que "Le Manifeste du surréalisme" d'André Breton. Aragon entendait concurrencer, certes amicalement, le manifeste de Breton, étant porté par la même ambition d'inaugurer une nouvelle ère de la pensée. Bien que le texte de Breton soit demeuré le texte fondateur du Surréalisme, le texte d'Aragon en constitue un important contrepoint. (Christie's, "Collection Daniel Filipacchi", première partie, n°26). BEL EXEMPLAIRE broché, conservé en PARFAIT ÉTAT. FINE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

        Selected Papers on Anthropology, Travel & Exploration. Now edited with an Introduction and Occasional Notes by N.M. Penzer.

      London: A.M. Philpot Ltd., 1924. London:: A.M. Philpot Ltd., 1924., 1924. 8vo. 240 pp. Half-title, index; foxed. Original full tan gilt-stamped bevelled buckram, t.e.g. LIMITED EDITION of 100 copies printed on handmade paper, each hand-numbered (#63). This work supplements Norman Penzer’s broadly reaching bibliography of the works of Sir Richard Francis Burton. Many readers found that the bibliography referenced items so rare that they were unable to obtain copies. Penzer, recognizing this need, selected these papers both for their rarity and for their being representative of Burton’s character. Thereby Penzer interjects comments relative to each of these ‘chapters’ – adding to his bibliographic narrative. Contents: Early Days in Sind; Guide-Book to Mecca; A Trip to Harar; Notes on Scalping; A Day Amongst the Fans; Notes on the Dahoman; Chapters from Travels; Notes on Rome; Spiritualism in Eastern Lands; and his study of Italian Egyptologist Giovanni Battista Belzoni.
