        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.

        T'erorizmi da k'omunizmi [Terrorism and Communism]

      Tbilisi: S. S. S. R. Sakhelmts'ipo Gamomtsemloba, 1924. Octavo (22.8 × 15 cm). Original printed wrappers; 193, [1] pp. About very good, partially uncut and unopened; small owner inscription to front wrapper and light wear to spine. First Georgian edition of Trotsky's defense of violent revolution, initially published in German in 1920. Trotsky's book is a response to Karl Kautsky's pamphlet "Die Diktatur des Proletariats" (Vienna, 1918), which criticizes the Bolshevik overthrow of the beginnings of parliamentary democracy in Russia after the October Revolution. Lenin was the first to rebut Kautsky's "betrayal", insisting that the revolutionary dictatorship of the proletariat against the bourgeoisie was necessary and should not be encumbered by laws or moral considerations. A year later, Trotsky's book presented a longer justification for the temporary use of violence and terror in the transition to socialism, as well as a warning: "The man who repudiates the dictatorship of the proletariat repudiates the socialist revolution and digs the grave of socialism." This Georgian translation of Trotsky's work was issued after the Soviet invasion of Georgia and the creation of a Transcaucasian SFSR, together with former Armenia and Azerbaijan, in 1922. Its publication also followed the so-called Georgian Affair of 1922-1923, an important dispute about local autonomy and national interests in the region, which was ultimately decided in favor of Stalin and Ordzhonikidze, squashing Georgia's hopes of becoming an independent member state of the Soviet Union. Lenin himself followed the conflict, and was dismayed by Stalin's imposition of central authority on smaller nation states, and the Affair was perhaps the final reason for his break with the future leader of the Soviet Union. With his health declining, Lenin reached out to Trotsky in the hope of gaining him for the Georgian cause, but Trotsky was evidently suspicious of Georgia as a center of Menshevism. A scarce translation, which would have been subject to confiscation after Trotsky's fall from grace in the late 1920s. One of 2000 copies. We are unable to trace any copies in KVK or OCLC.

        A PASSAGE TO INDIA

      Longmans, Green & Co / Edwin Arnold & Co., Toronto & London 1924 - Red cloth, stamped in black. Cloth slightly darkened, with a few small, faint spots, rear free endsheet neatly excised, else a very good copy. First edition, Canadian issue, bound up from the British sheets with a cancel title, in a binding equivalent to the London binding, but with a Longmans spine imprint. The Arnold London adverts remain intact at the end. Scarce - unrecorded by Kirkpatrick, who is normally scrupulously attentive to such bibliographic subtleties. We've had only one other copy of this Canadian issue, and as (only) an interesting relative measure, OCLC reports six copies with this imprint, as against over 120 copies with the Arnold imprint. MODERN MOVEMENT 45.

        Musiciens d'Autrefois [Musicians of the Past] - INSCRIBED PRESENTATION COPY TO GUIDO ADLER

      Paris: Libraire Hachette, 1924. Ninth Edition. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. 8vo. 306 pp. Inscribed in ink on the half title "A Mr. le Prof. D. Guido Adler / en confraternel hommage / et cordial souvenir / Romain Rolland / Villeneuve, 8 Nov.bre 1926." Original wrappers bound in to half green cloth, pale green boards somewhat stained and sunned, a couple small tears to page margins, wrapper and half title stained and reinforced with paper along the gutter, several library stamps and stickers (see description below) otherwise in very good condition.<br><br><br />An important association copy of this collection of articles and essays on music, inscribed by the author to the father of modern musicology, Guido Adler. This volume confiscated by the Nazis and recently restored to his heirs from the library of the University of Vienna. <br><br><br />Rolland was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1915 "as a tribute to the lofty idealism of his literary production and to the sympathy and love of truth with which he has described different types of human beings." <br><br><br />Guido Adler is regarded as the father of modern musicology. He was the founder of the Musikwissenschaftliches Seminar of the University of Vienna, regarded as the prototype of musical research centres worldwide. He was a friend of many composers, including Brahms, Bruckner, Bartók and Mahler, who presented him with the autograph manuscript of the song "Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen". After the Anschluss and during the last illness of the musicologist, the great library which he formed became a bargaining chip for the survival of Adler and his daughter Melanie. She imagined that they might be able to leave Vienna if the collection were given or sold to a library. The bargaining failed. Adler died, the library and his manuscripts were confiscated and Melanie transported and shot in 1942. This and the other books were catalogued by the library later in that year. Some parts of the library were found after the war and restored to the family and are now in the University of Georgia. The present volume was more recently discovered in the Music Library of the University of Vienna, marked with the stamp and inventory number of the Musikwissenschaftliches Seminar, having been stolen by the organisation Adler had founded.

        Fairy Tales by Hans Andersen

      New York: George H. Doran Company, 1924. A Near Fine Copy Of The First American Trade Edition [Nielsen, Kay, illustrator]. Andersen, Hans Christian. Fairy Tales by Hans Andersen. Illustrated by Kay Nielsen. New York: George H. Doran Comapny, [1924]. First American trade edition. Quarto (11 1/8 x 8 9/16 in; 282 x 217 mm.). 280, [1], [3, blank] pp. Twelve mounted color plates with captioned tissue guards and numerous black and white text illustrations (seventeen full-page) and decorative borders and initials. Publisher's black cloth over boards, front cover with pictorial label printed in silver, orange and black, spine pictorially decorated in silver, pictorial endpapers printed in gray. Minimal rubbing to silver decoration on spine otherwise a bright and near fine copy. "In an attempt to reinvigorate the market for gift books after the war, Hodder & Stoughton resumed the publishing of Kay Nielsen's books, though on a more modest scale. In 1924 they published a work that Nielsen had begun in 1912, Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales, including sixteen stories illustrated with twelve watercolors. Nielsen returned to London, and in 1925 his final book for Hodder & Stoughton, Hansel and Gretel, appeared with twelve color plates" (Susan E. Meyer, A Treasury of the Great Children's Book Illustrators, p. 206). Danish illustrator and designer Kay Nielsen (1886-1957) "was drawn early on to fairy tales and illustrated many volumes for Hodder & Stoughton: In Powder and Crinoline (1913), East of the Sun, West of the Moon (1914), Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales (drawings completed in 1912, but first published in 1924), Hansel and Gretel (1925), and Red Magic (Jonathan Cape, 1930), a collections of fairy tales from around the world. Nielsen's designs unite strong linearity with delicate colouring...Characterized by a sense of two-dimensional flatness, Nielsen's objects and people are highly stylized: foxglove blossoms hang in measured asymmetry; princes and princesses stand on improbably long legs; and their garments billow in gravity-defying parabolas. The power of his illustrations lies in his uncanny ability to retrieve a story's emotional effect on its reader and to recreate it visually in two dimensions" (The Oxford Companion to Fairy Tales).

        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.

Enveloppe à son adresse. pliures Intéressante lettre de Ravel écrite au moment où il débute la composition de Tzigane, rhapsodie pour violon et orchestre qui sera créée à Londres le 24 avril 1924. "Je regrette vivement de ne pouvoir trouver un moment pour entendre votre ouvrage : j'ai entrepris un travail peu important, il est vrai, mais qui à peine commencé devrait être prêt dans un mois. D'ailleurs les oeuvres que vous avez déposées sont à elles seules en nombre suffisant (on ne me les as pas encore communiquées). Tâchez cependant d'envoyer à temps l'orchestration de votre prélude. Quant à votre poème lyrique, je ne crois pas que les règlements du concours s'opposent à ce que vous le fassiez parvenir au dernier moment". Compositeur. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        FAIRY TALES by Hans Andersen

      New York: George H. Doran, [1924]. First American edition. With 12 very fine tipped-in color plates, numerous black & white illustrations as frontispieces to each tale and additional decoration throughout all by Kay Nielsen. 4to, in the original black cloth featuring a black, matallic silver, and orange pictorial pastedown on the upper cover, the spine lettered and decorated in silver, with decorative endpapers. 280pp. A very fine copy, internally as pristine and perfect as new, the cloth very bright and fresh with no fading or wear, the upper pastedown pristine, the silver lettering and decorations on the spine with some flaking as is unfortunately the norm. FIRST EDITION OF THE QUARTO PRINTING. This collection of sixteen tales was initiated by Nielsen in 1912, though it was not published until 1924. Andersen's beloved tales were an excellent inspiration for Nielsen who produced some of his finest images for this title. Sixteen of Andersen's tales are included. Interestingly, 'The Little Mermaid' is not included among them. In 1937 Nielsen went to work for Walt Disney. He was renowned at the Disney studio for his concept art, and he contributed artwork for many Disney films. Around 1940 he produced concept paintings for a proposed adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's 'The Little Mermaid'. The film, however, was not made within Nielsen's lifetime. The paintings however would remain with the study for over 40 years and did not go unused, they provided much of the look and style of Disney's 1989 film. That film is given credit for breathing life back into the art of animated feature films and remains one of the studios most popular features to date.
