        Leon Bakst

      1925 - (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 large". 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 Ballet 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 Ballet 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.

        Photograph Album documenting the construction of the Lincoln Highway across the state of Indiana including the famous "Ideal Section" and its junction with the Dixie Highway

      Indiana and Kentucky, 1925. This 8" x 6.5" album contains 54 glue-mounted photographs with an additional 19 that are laid-in. Most of the photographs measure 2.75" x 4.5", and almost all are captioned either on the page or, in the case of the laid-in images, on the reverse . The album and the photographs are in nice shape.The mounted photos in this album are of work on the Lincoln highway and its junction with the Dixie Highway showing the work crew, crew lodging, steamrollers, tractors, tar-spreading trucks, trucks dumping stone, stone-spreading by hand, leveling, loading of tar and stone into company trucks from railcars, vehicles and equipment stuck in sand and mud, and finished roadway including the Ideal Section. The 19 laid-in photographs show roadwork near Bargetown, Burnside, Harrodsburg, Livingston, and Stanford, Kentucky. These images are similar to the Lincoln Highway photos but also include a steam shovel, mule team, and three African-American boys who entertained the work crew with Stephen Foster songs. An important visual history of the first major transcontinental road construction project in the United States from the viewpoint of one of the workers. The Lincoln Highway was one of the first transcontinental automobile highways in the United States. It was conceived in 1912 by an Indiana businessman, Carl G. Fisher, and formally dedicated October 31, 1913. It ran coast-to-coast from New York City's Times Square to San Francisco's Lincoln Park. Initially, less than half of the route was paved. In an effort to provide the public with a vision of the future, Fisher obtained sponsorship from U. S. Rubber Company to build an "Ideal Section" of roadway between Dyer and Schererville in Lake County, Indiana that had concrete roadbeds, wide banked curves with guard rails, no crossings, and a parallel pedestrian footpath. Fischer also initiated the construction of the Dixie Highway which actually a series of north-south roads that linked northern Michigan and Chicago with Miami, Florida.

        Photograph Album documenting life in one of the first Marine Aviation Squadrons to be stationed in the Pacific and its follow-on deployment to China to protect the International Settlement at Shanghai during the Chinese Civil War

      California, Guam, Philippines, and China, 1925-1927. This large (15? x 11.5?) album 48 tissue-protected cardstock pages filled with approximately 275 photographs. The album is incredible well done. The photographs are in very nice shape. The album has very little wear, however it has a mended 3? tear on the front cover. This impressive album follows the service of a Marine, probably a commissioned or non-commissioned officer, assigned to Marine Scouting Squadron VS-1M. The album begins with photographs of Marine Barracks San Diego in 1925, follows the squadron?s deployment to Guam were it helped establish Orote Field at the Apra Harbor Naval Station (the first Marine aviation base in the Pacific), and concludes with a section illustrating its deployment to the Philippines and China, which had long been troubled by internal disorder. Highlights of this album include images of * the Marine Barracks San Diego, * a number of naval warships (USS Henderson, USS Chaumont, USS Pecos, USS Thomas, and more), * many Marine ground and sea-based aircraft including what appear to be Curtis HS-2L seaplanes and Boeing FB-1 fighters, * Orote Field including hangars, shops and target practice with 7mm guns, * departing Guam for China and the Philippines, * life in China (the U. S. legation, warships, soldiers from several countries including what appears to be a mule-drawn U.S. Army artillery piece, local Chinese, a camel caravan, scenes of the Forbidden City and the Great Wall), * life in the Philippines (a cock fight, baseball, the Dreamland Night Club and Brothel, docks, facilities, Philippine locals, railroad travel, a Boy Scout parade, urban and rural life), and more. In 1925 fighting between Chinese warlords reached the city of Shanghai, and twice during the year small contingents of Marines landed in the city to protect American interests. In 1927, a more serious threat blossomed as one of the Chinese forces pushed towards the city crushing all opposition in its path and panicking the International Settlement. Remembering the Boxer Rebellion and fearful of recent Communist depredations, the community clamored for their governments to provide protection. So, in early 1927, the United States ordered the initial deployment of about 340 Marines from Guam to Shanghai including Marine Scouting Squadron VS-1M as well as the subsequent deployment of the 4th Marine Regiment. This is one of the nicest military photo albums we?ve seen and a rare visual record of early Marine aviation in the Pacific and the initial establishment of the long-term U.S. military presence in pre-World War II China.

      1925 - LEWIS, Sinclair. Arrowsmith. New York: Harcourt, Brace, (1925). Octavo, original buckram spine, blue paper boards, original printed paper label, top edge gilt, uncut. $2500.Signed limited first edition of what many consider Lewis' greatest novel, number 139 of only 500 large paper copies signed by him."Using for his theme the losing fight made by two men with whom scientific truth is religion, Mr. Lewis draws a picture for us that is disquieting in its disillusionment". Arrowsmith is a pagan novel for a pagan world". an authentic step forward"&#157; (Books of the Century, 63-64). Although Arrowsmith was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, Lewis declined the honor, ostensibly because Main Street (1921) had not been so honored. His rejection, however, also secured front-page status for this satire of the medical profession in the nation's newspapers. Adapted to the screen in 1931 by director John Ford.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED, addressed to the Austrian Composer and Conductor Hans Pless, making mention of his "Macbeth"

      [December 28, 1925].. 1925].. Very good. - sc Two pages with over 100 words penned in German on both sides of an 8- 3/8 inch high by 5-1/4 inch wide sheet of buff colored paper. The composer's name and address are faintly stamped in light blue at top left of the first page. In his letter addressed to the Austrian composer and conductor Hans Pless, Berg thanks him for his letter and mentions that he is anxious to get to know Pless's Macbeth. The following excerpts are translated from the German Fractur handwriting: "I, too, was sorry that you were not present. It would have meant a great deal to me." Berg is quite probably referring to the premiere of his opera Wozzeck which took place on December 14, 1925, two weeks before the date of this letter. Berg goes on to say, "I am very anxious to get to know your Macbeth. As soon as I come to Vienna and catch my breath after all my unavoidable obligations, we must get together for that wonderful purpose. Or perhaps we will see each other at the Volksoper when you conduct...." Signed "Alban Berg". Folded once horizontally for mailing, there are tiny tears to the edges of the fold. Very good. <p>A member of the Second Viennese School with Arnold Schoenberg and Anton Webern, Alban Berg (1885-1935) was an Austrian composer of 20th century music whose compositions were influenced by the Romanticism of Gustav Mahler and his teacher Arnold Shcoenberg's twelve- tone technique. He is perhaps best remembered for his Violin Concerto and his operas "Wozzeck" and "Lulu", the latter about a prostitute who crosses paths with Jack the Ripper. Although he finished the first 2 acts, Berg died before completing Lulu.<p>The Austrian composer and conductor Hans Pless (1884-1966) collaborated with Daniel Ruyneman in setting up an organization to promote performances of new music in Europe and the US.<p>An English translation of the letter is included.

        Im Irrgarten

      Bertele, Bilder, Buecher, Frankfurt A.M. 1925 - Quarto. (26)pp. First edition. Written and illustrated with thirteen fantastic, chromolithographed plates by Kleyer, who studied under the expressionist painter and printmaker Ludwig Meidner. Kleyer's text, which is a series of rhyming couplets printed on facing pages, concerns a family visit to a carnival, where they enter a funhouse maze. The majority of the illustrations are concerned with depicting the various distorted reflections the two little girls, their parents, and the family dog see while traversing the funhouse. These illustrations possess a distinctly surreal aesthetic reminiscent of the pioneering artwork of Winsor McCay for his Little Nemo in Slumberland. Bound in original cloth-backed illustrated boards, which show light soiling. Overall, a near fine copy of a scarce book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
