        Cervantes - Neun Blatt unveröffentlichte Original-Kaltnadelradierungen zu Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra: "Don Quijote".

      Wohl Königsberg 1925 - um 1925. Lose Blätter. (Vier Blätter im weißen Rand etwas fleckig, wenige kleine Randeinrisse, insgesamt recht gut und klare Abdrucke. Selten.). Jedes Blatt unter dem Bild links in Bleistift als Vordruck bzw. Probedruck bezeichnet und numeriert sowie rechts signiert.

"Klaus Carl Friedrich Richter (geb. 25. Januar 1887 in Berlin; gest. 3. Januar 1948 ebenda) war ein deutscher Maler und Schriftsteller. Richter war Sohn eines Arztes und studierte in Mailand und München Philosophie und Sprachen, bevor er sich der Malerei zuwandte. In Paris studierte er anatomisches Zeichnen bei seinem Onkel Robert Richter und wurde dann Schüler von Lovis Corinth in Berlin, wo er auch die Bekanntschaft von Magnus Zeller machte, mit dem er ab 1911 ein gemeinsames Atelier unterhielt. Ebenfalls ab 1911 stellte Richter bei der Berliner Sezession aus. Gleichzeitig arbeitete er auch als Schriftsteller, war ein Jahr lang Schauspieler bei Max Reinhardt und schuf Bühnenbilder für den frühen Stummfilm. Ab 1919 lehrte er an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Berlin-Charlottenburg, 1922 wurde er dann Professor an der Kunstakademie Königsberg, wo er auch an der Universität Vorlesungen hielt. Ab 1927 war er Professor an der Berliner Hochschule für Bildende Künste. Er war ab 1929 Mitglied und von 1937 bis zu seiner Absetzung durch Joseph Goebbels 1940 sowie 1946/47 Vorsitzender des Vereins Berliner Künstler. 1940 erhielt er den Auftrag, ein Porträt von Hermann Göring anzufertigen, das allerdings nie abgeliefert wurde. Bei den Sitzungen in der >Wolfsschanze< entstand auch ohne Auftrag sein künstlerisch bemerkenswertes Porträtgemälde von Adolf Hitler (1941), das in zwei nahezu identischen Versionen erhalten ist. Das Werk stellt den Diktator jenseits der offiziellen Propaganda apathisch und zusammengesunken mit leerem Blick dar. (.) Zu seinen Schülern zählte unter anderen Rudi Lesser." (vgl. Wikipedia).

        Le Paradis des conditions humaines. Bois gravés de Henri Van Straten

      Editions Lumière Anvers 1925 - In-8, "pliage à faux format" (260 X 185 mm), 78 pages ; couvertures conservées. 1/2 maroquin à coins, tête dorée. Etui, avec coupes de maroquin. Reliure du temps, signée René Aussourd. Parfait exemplaire, non ébarbé. Un des 36 sur Hollande Van Gelder (n° 11), seul grand papier, d'un tirage total de 361 exemplaires qui se décompose comme suit : - 36 sur Hollande, "pliage à faux format", numérotés de 1 à 31 et de A à E, renfermant six bois hors-texte coloriés à la main par Van Straten, et deux suites, la première, dont chaque bois est signé au crayon, sur Hollande Van Gelder, la seconde sur Longhi mauve - 325 sur papier Featherweght en format 225 X 145 mm, avec les six bois hors-texte. Puissante illustration expressionniste de Hendrik van Straten (Anvers 1892-1944), l'un des 5 grands rénovateurs de la xylographie flamande dans l'immédiate après-guerre, avec Frans Masereel, Jan-Frans Cantré, Jozef Cantré et Joris Minne. Les tirages sur le papier fort Hollande Van Gelder sont particulièrement saisissants. Jean-Richard Bloch (1884-1947), écrivain et homme politique français, beau-frère d'André Maurois, était considéré dans les années 1920 comme un des écrivains français les plus prometteurs, à l'égal d'Alain-Fournier, Mauriac, Martin du Gard ; André Gide, Romain Rolland, etc.le tenaient en haute estime. Sa nouvelle "Le Paradis des Conditions humaines", publiée sans illustrations en 1920, jugée "curieuse et émouvante" par Jacques Rivière, est "certainement l'un des premiers textes français inspirés par la connaissance des théories psychanalytiques . Ses deux premières pages laissent attendre un témoignage classique sur les choses vues dans les tranchées. Or, après deux pages, tout bascule : au récit classique se substitue un texte allégorique entièrement consacré à l'évocation de l'instant mortel". (Toutes ces citations sont tirées de l'article d'Alix Tubman-Mary, " L'expansion de l'instant dans le Paradis des conditions humaines", publié dans les actes du Colloque "L'instant romanesque", qui s'est tenu à Bordeaux en 1997) [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Les Aventures di Roi Pausole. 28 Bois Originaux de Foujita. Illustrated by Tsugouharu Foujita.

      Le Livre de Demain/Artheme Fayard & Cie, Paris 1925 - A Very Good copy in original orange wrappers printed in black and red, price label afixed to front cover in a later board slipcase. 175 pp. 28 illustrations after woodcuts by Foujita. Wrappers are rubbed and partially separated though intact with loss to one corner. Many titles were published in this series of "Le Livre de Demain" but this volume is partically collectible because of the witty woodcuts by the young expatriate Japanese artist primarily known for his cat paintings and illustrations. There is not a cat to be found in any of these woodcuts, which makes this production even more special. Catalog Rum

        Die Erreichbarkeit der Himmelskörper. Untersuchung über das Raumfahrtproblem.

      Munich & Berlin: Verlag von R. Oldenbourg, 1925. 1st Edition. Soft cover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (254 x 179 mm). iv, [2], 88 pp. including 28 illustrations in text. Original publisher's dark-blue pictorial wrappers (slight chipping to edges and lower spine, short closed tears, creases, light browning to margins, pencil marking to upper blank margin of front wrapper). Text untrimmed and partially unopened, light age-toning. ----Interlibrum, Cat. 270; Ciancone 98; Hübner 696. - FIRST EDITION, first issue of an important early work on the feasibility of space flight with calculations of required rocket propulsion and trajectories. "Hohmann was the first to work out the fuel requirements for a number of interplanetary trips restricting himself to a mathematical investigation of the quantities of a given or assumed fuel required for an assumed operation" (Interlibrum). The work is rare. Only 1500 copies were printed and this is one of the few copies with the original pictorial blue wrappers. "One of the most important publications, following close on the heels of Oberth's book, was a volume of similar external appearance, written in a similar manner. As a matter of fact, it looked so forbidding to prospective buyers who leafed through it in the book-stores that the first edition ... was never completely sold and remained after the second world war with a new wrapper bearing the printed title only on the front cover. It soon became a much searched rarity" (Interlibrum). 1st Printing. Very Good.

        [FIRST MANDELSTAM'S 'THE NOISE OF TIME'] Shum vremeni [i.e. The Noise of Time]

      Leningrad: Vremia, 1925. 104 pp. 19,5x14 cm. Original illustrated wrappers. Near fine. Small tears at the top and bottom of the spine, damp stains on a few pages, Soviet bookshop's stamp on the back cover. First edition. One of 3000 copies. Rare. This is the first prose collection and an autobiographical work by Osip Mandelstam (1891-1938) from which most of the knowledge of his early years come from. It was written during the pause he took from writing poetry at the Crimean spa of Gaspra. The Noise of Time was written in 1923 but has not taken in publishing until 1925. It is a series of autobiographical sketches of the late 19th - early 20th century but strictly speaking it's not an autobiography: «My desire is not to speak about myself but to track down the age, the noise and the germination of time». At that time Mandelstam was trying to earn living with his literary work. All of his essays were commissioned. Isay Lezhnev, the editor of 'Rossiya' (i.e. Russia) commissioned The Noise of Time but after it was finished he was bitterly disappointed and rejected it - he was awaiting for a story similar to his or Mark Chagall's childhood stories but this story of St. Petersburg's jewish boy seemed dull for him. After that Mandelstam showed the work to Efros and Tikhonov (editor of 'Vsemirnaia literatura') but they also said they expected more from him. So he was left without fee when he badly needed it. Luckily his wife Nadezhda Mandelstam preserved the manuscript so it went from magazine to magazine. «Nobody would print a plotless thing without a class approach or social significance». Everybody including Nikolay Bukharin and Vladimir Narbut were saying the same: «I can't publish it - give me translations». Nadezhda Mandelstam later suggested that «there had probably been some decision at the top&hellip; wherever it is that ideology comes from - that divided writers into 'ours' and 'theirs'. Mandelstam and Akhmatova turned up in the extreme category of 'theirs'». (After Mandelstam's last book was published in 1928 his poetry was ostracized and almost banned). Only Georgy Blok, Alexander Blok's cousin, who held private press breathing its last became interested and published it. Even though critics found his perception of life 'potted' they appreciated his depiction and feature of 1880s-90s life and reaction period. Cover design by E. Kiliusheva who was an illustrator of children's books of publishing house 'Raduga' in the 1920s.

        Exceptional Signed Portrait Photograph by Edward STEICHEN (Charles, 1889-1977, Comedian)

      1925 - (1879-1973), signed and inscribed to R.A.J. Wolling "from Charlie Chaplin" on two lines across the image, mostly in the light background, showing him head and shoulders, the shoulders in near profile to the viewer's right, his head turned slightly forward, three quarter face to the viewer, a warm smile just forming in his eyes, cheeks and lips, a few touches of grey in his hair, he wears a dark jacket with thin stripes at the collar, a lighter tie, his left arm descending diagonally at the back of the image, the image 9" x 7" in margins 10" x 8" on contemporary light card mount 14" x 10¾" with photographer's light protective 'flimsy', no place, no date, circa flimsy loose with a few small edge defects, photo and mount in fine condition This portrait dates from Steichen's 'Condé Nast' period, when he made artistic studies for Vogue and Vanity Fair. It bears an astonishing resemblance to the image, part of the Steichen Bequest, in the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. There is no perceptible difference in the pose, the angle of the head, or the contours of the hair, but the Minneapolis image has no smile and indeed by contrast appears serious, almost severe, although clearly taken at the same sitting. We do not think the smile has been achieved by retouching, and its warmth appears entirely natural, indeed most attractive. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

A man and a woman in profile turned towards each other, the painting recalls Francis Picabia's work with its rounded, curvilinear forms. The colors of the painting are monochromatic shades of gray brightening to blue, and beige deepening into black. For the 1981 UCSB retrospective, Rexroth gave the painting the title "Abstraction: The Dignity of Jugglers Affected by Night". San Francisco Museum of Art label on the back, with title given as "Abstraction", dated "6/29/42". [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Pastora ki [Pastorals]. Drzeworyty Tadeusza Makowskiego

      Polskie Towarzystwo Przyjació Ksi ki, Paris 1925 - Quarto (26 × 21 cm). Original pictorial wrappers with a woodcut by Makowski; twelve woodcuts, of which six full- page; 34, [3] pp. Very good. Considered one of the most beautiful Polish artist books of the twentieth-century, this edition of twelve modernist Christmas carols is illustrated with striking primitivist woodcuts by Tadeusz Makowski (1882-1932), a Polish painter active in Paris. Futurist poet and painter Czy ewski (1880-1945) was one of the founders of the "Formist" group, the main avant-garde organization in Poland from 1917-22; from 1922 to 1930 he lived in Paris, where he exhibited widely. "The Pastoralki is both a modern work and at the same time one that reaches into the wealth of folk art. Its modernity finds expression in conceiving folkiness as an artistic inspiration far removed from the ethnographic folklorism; it also expresses itself in a close relationship to dadaism" (Wyka 104). One of 520 copies, this one unnumbered and unsigned. Printed on handmade laid paper by Joseph Joubert-Fournier in Auvergne. With the mark of the Polish Association of Bibliophiles to the title page, a woodcut by Konstanty Brandel. See Gro ska 368. Rypson 21.

        Sangschaw (Inscribed And Signed By The Author To The Poet Maurice Lindsay)

      First Edition published by William Blackwood And Sons in 1925. First issue with dark blue cloth and gilt titling. The BOOK is in near Fine condition. Some light pushing at the spine ends. Some toning to the text-block with some spotting to the prelims and endpapers. Occasional light spot to the pages in places. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good++ or better condition. Toning to the edges, folds and the spine. Light creasing and mild edge-wear at the spine ends with a little loss. Light archival tape repairs to the spine folds on the verso. The wrapper is protected in a removable Brodart archival cover. The book has been Inscribed and Signed By the Author to the front blank endpaper: 'Signed with pleasure and warmest regards for my friend, fellow poet and fellow scot, Maurice Lindsay, Hugh M'Diarmid, 14/9/74'. With Maurice Lindsay's bookplate to the front pastedown and his signature in green ink to the front end-paper. The recipient Maurice Lindsay was a Scottish broadcaster, writer and poet. He became a radio broadcaster, also editing the 1946 'Anthology Modern Scottish Poetry', and writing music criticism. He later became Programme Controller at Border Television. Hugh MacDiarmid (C.M. Grieve) was Scotland's most influential and controversial writer in the 20th century. He urged and enabled the regeneration of all aspects of Scotland's literature and culture through his poetry, polemical writing and political activity. 'A Drunk Man Looks at the Thistle' (1926) is generally regarded as Scotland's masterpiece of Modernism. 'He started writing in Scots, using words and phrases he knew from boyhood and acquired from reading in dictionaries and works of Scottish literature from earlier eras. The poems of Sangschaw (1925), Penny Wheep (1926) and A Drunk Man Looks At The Thistle (1926) were shocking, adult, wry, rebarbative, difficult, piercingly sweet, unsentimental and brutal. They established a new dispensation for Scottish literature, and modernist lusts: for the body and the sexually explicit cognate with Joyce and Lawrence; for the local and demotic, cognate with William Carlos Williams; for the difficult, cognate with Eliot; for the vatic and austere, cognate with Yeats and Pound; for the intellectually demanding, cognate with Stevens and Valéry; but uniquely in the Scottish context, reclaiming a literary history that had fallen into neglect and obfuscation. Forget about Burns, he advised, go back to Dunbar and Henryson, recover and reclaim a national tradition that goes back through millennia.' (Scottish Poetry Library). A wonderful signed association copy of the author's first poetry collection and scarce with such attributes. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

        Leon Bakst

      1925. First Edition . (BAKST, Leon) LEVINSOHN, Andre. Leon Bakst. Berlin: Verlag Ernst Wasmuth, [1925]. Folio (11 by 14-1/2 inches), original full vellum, uncut; original slipcase. $3500.Limited first German edition of Levinsohn's life of Bakst, number 23 of only 250 copies produced, tracing the artist's important contributions to the history of modern art and dance, with 68 full-page mounted plates of costumes and sets, 52 in color, including the frontispiece portrait of Bakst by Modigliani, and numerous in-text mounted linecuts and photogravures, many also in color.""In the book of fame, the name of Léon Bakst is writ largeÂ… He was destined to modify profoundly the whole conception of the western stage."" A gifted painter, Bakst is best remembered for the sets and costumes he designed for Diaghilev's Ballets Russes in the early decades of the 20th century. His exotic and sumptuous designs, in conjunction with Diaghilev's radical and provocative choreography, helped revitalize ballet and lay the framework for modern interpretive dance. It was the Ballets Russes that first brought such classics as Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty to the West, featuring scenery and costumes by Bakst. This ""luxurious volume of color plates"" contains beautiful designs from many of the Russian ballet's most renowned productions, including Firebird, Blue God, Cleopatra, Narcissus, and Bakst's famous Scheherazade (Steegmuller, 78). ""Bakst's greatest claim to theatrical glory lies in his feeling for synthesis, in his impeccable instinct for harmony"" (Levinson). Preceded by the 1922 American edition and the 1923 English and French editions. Text in German. See Freitag 422. Text and plates clean and fine. Expert repair to vellum along rear joint, minor toning to spine, binding attractive. Moderate wear to original slipcase. An extremely good copy of this splendid production.

      Karel Novotný and Uh. Hradi&#154;ti 1925 - SIGNED. One bookplate is missing. Fourteen tipped-in bookplates mounted on green paper, housed in a folding printed paper portfolio, with folded sheet comprising title page, introduction, and colophon laid in. List of plates pasted to verso of rear portfolio cover (as issued). Three-panel portfolio has split along most of its length at both folds-- at one time, tape was applied to the verso folds, leaving dark marks. Tape still partially affixed to one of the folds. Toning and short tears to portfolio, with narrow dampstain along "spine". Small ownership stamp in Czech on verso of portfolio cover. The bookplates themselves, printed on a variety of papers, are crisp and clean. The upper left-hand corners of the mounting papers are lightly creased. Portfolio measures 16.5 cm x 21 cm closed; mounting papers measure 15 cm x 20.5 cm; bookplate measurements vary. Signed by Bochorakova-Dittrichova in pencil on title page of introductory leaflet. Number 66 of an edition of 150. A wonderful collection of images celebrating reading, study, and well-appointed libraries. Bochorakova-Dittrichova primarily worked in woodcut, so the engravings are a rare and interesting component of this early work. Helena Bochorakova-Dittrichova (1894-1980) was the first female wordless novelist, and the only woman to work in this medium during its heyday. She was born in the Moravian region of what is now the Czech Republic and spent most of her life in Brno, the Moravian capital. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and in 1923 received a government scholarship to study printmaking in Paris. Bochorakova-Dittrichova's unpublished wordless novel Malířka Na Cestách [The Artist on Her Journey] recounts this period in her life. In Paris, she first encountered the wordless novels of Flemish artist Franz Masereel, the originator of the form, and was inspired to create her own. Over the course of her long career, Bochorakova-Dittrichova published several wordless novels, along with travelogues and historical works. She also worked as a printmaker and illustrator, and was highly regarded in her native land, though largely unknown elsewhere. This changed in 2014, when the National Museum of Women in the Arts held an exhibition of her work entitled "The First Woman Graphic Novelist: Helena Bochorakova-Dittrichova," and this important artist finally began to gain global recognition. Her work, however, is still not widely available. [Attributes: First Edition]
