        Skizzenbuch mit 25 farbigen Tusche-Zeichnungen und einigen Bleistiftskizzen mit Kinderdarstellungen.

      Italien, 1925-1926... ca. 30 Blätter mit Originalzeichnungen. GR. 8° quer (Format ca. 23,5x33 cm), die Zeichnungen je ca. 14x20 cm bis 20x30 cm). In einem schmucklosen Ganzleinenband der Zeit.. Auf dem Vorderdeckel ein handschriftlich geschriebener Name, ev. des Künstlers: Mareella. Die Blätter meist monogrammiert 'MM' u. datiert. Italien, 1925/26. Enthält etwas naive Darstellungen von sich spielenden, küssenden, badenden Kindern, Fasching u.a., meist mit italienischem Titel. Der Zeichner hatte scheinbar vor, die Welt der Erwachsenen auf die der Kinder zu projezieren. Grundthema ist die Liebe, die ersten Küsse, das Verlassenwerden und das heimliche Beobachten beim An- und Auskleiden! Der Stil kann als naiv aber durchaus gekonnt bezeichnet werden, die Kinder tauchen in verschiedenen Kostümen unterschiedlicher historischer Epochen auf, werden aber auch nach der Mode der damaligen 20er Jahre gezeichnet. Mit einigen recht hübschen Karnevalsdarstellungen in Venedig! Im Stil des Art deco gezeichnet! - Aus dem Inhalt: 1. "I mici sgorli" (2 als Indianer verkleidete Kinder die sich umarmen vor einem Wigwam) - 2. "Addio, mia bella, addio, L'armata se ne va E se non parlissi 'anch'io sarebbe una vilta" (Abschiedsszene) - 3. unleserlich betitelt (Gondoliereszene vor Venedig) - 4. "Paolo e Francesca" (zwei sich küssende KInder in Renaissancekleidungen) - 5. "Il bacio". - 6. "Il primo bacio ...Da la vicina chiesa le campane scionarono a distesa e andarona a morir lontano. I canto diseesero dai monti a poco a poco per benedire il nostro amore... E la baciai." (Der erste Kuß). - 7. "La promessa" (2 sich küssende Kinder in Bauerntracht) - 8. Doppelbild: "Resta - Oda Negri" und "Il bacio furtiro" (Doppelbild mit 2 sich umarmenden Kindern und eines mit einem Jungen der auf einer Leiter stehend ein auf einem Balkon stehendes Mädchen küßt). - 9. Parlo parlo nel pianto... (2 sich an den der Hand haltende KInder, bei der der Junge scheinbar weint), gegenüber eine Pferdekopfstudie mit Bleistift gezeichnet. - 10. unleserlich betitelt (2 Kinder im Gespräch, beide in Tracht, daneben wohl ein Bauernmädchen vor einem Dorf). - 12. La vendita di una schiava (Orientalische Nacktszene: ein nacktes Mädchen wird von ihrer Dienerin nach dem Bad in ein Handtuch gehüllt). - 13. Dopo il bagno (Badeszene, eine Dienerin hilft einem nackten Mädchen nach dem Bad in einem Badezuber beim abtrocknen). - 14. Tennis (2 Kinder in Tenniskleidung im Stil der 20er Jahre mit Schlägern auf einem Tennisplatz). 15. Fußballszene (2 Fußballspielende Kinder). - 16. Curiosita (ein Junge beobachtet verstohlen ein sich ankleidendes Kind). - 16. L'indiscetion (Szenerie ähnlich der Vorherigen). - 17. unbetitelt (2 Kinder ev. in Alpentracht).- 18. Bleistiftstudie eines Kindes. - 19. Sport (Tennisszene, Kinder in Tenniskleidung der 20er Jahre, mit überzogen groß gezeichneten Augen). - 20. "I misteri della laguna" (Kinder in Karnevalskostümen vor einer Gondel, im Hintergrund Venedig, mit übergroß gezeichneten Augen). - 22,-23. weitere Karnevalsszenen in ähnlicher Manier gestaltet. - 24. "Galeotto fu, il lebro chi lo sorisse" (Kußszene). - 25. "Avventure di caccia" (Jagdszene, 2 Kinder mit Gewehren).3 weitere Blätter mit Bleistiftskizzen. Vorne auf dem Vorsatzblatt zwei aufmontierte Buntstiftzeichnungen. - In einem schmucklosen Ganzleinen-Skizzenbuch der Zeit, dieser etwas angeschmutzt, die Ecken, Kanten und auch am Rücken leichter gestaucht, innen durchgehend etwas gebräunt, im vorderen Gelenk leichter gelockert.

        Bronze of an African figure

      [Circa 1925]. First. Bronze figure of a dancing African warrior, armed with shield and spear, unsigned and without obvious foundry information. Approximately 28" high by about 12" at the widest point, and basically two-dimensional, that is, about 1/2" at its deepest point. The dore bronze is finished on both sides, indicating that it was meant to be viewed from either side, thus it was probably intended as an architectural element in a frieze or as a room divider, and is not currently free standing (and would probably best be mounted on granite or marble). Weight is about 24 lbs. The muscular, stylized art deco vintage warrior is reminiscent of the portrayal of African natives generally associated with the Cotton Club, that is, both caricaturized and idealized simultaneously, and is possibly an original architectural feature of that or a similarly themed establishment. The expensive casting process almost certainly indicates that few of these were done, and they are commensurately scarce. Shipping at cost. .

        Caricature portrait of Karel Capek

      1925. Pencil on wove paper. Sheet size: 29 × 17.3 cm. Shows signs of having been somewhat crumpled at some point, old soft creases, slight soiling and occasional scuffing of the surface, a few short edge-splits at the top, but overall very good. Window mounted and framed in an ebonized wood Czech Cubist-style frame, UV-resistant glass. Signed by both sitter and artist. Wonderful portrait from life of the great Czechoslovakian writer by that portmanteau nation's finest caricaturist. Commonly characterised as a writer of science fiction - his most famous work is probably The War with the Newts, described by influential critic Darko Suvin as "the pioneer of all anti-fascist and anti-militarist SF" (Smith, Twentieth-century Science Fiction Writers) - Capek's writing is ill-served by such pigeonholing. Arthur Miller, a youthful enthusiast for his work attempted to sum up Capek's unique appeal; "There was no writer like him … prophetic assurance mixed with surrealistic humour and hard-edged social satire: a unique combination … he is a joy to read" (Foreword to Smith, Toward a Radical Center: A Karel Capek Reader). Following the cession of the Sudetenland to Germany in September 1938, Capek, although identified by the Gestapo as an enemy of the Nazi state, refused to go into exile, and suffering from depression he succumbed to pneumonia just a couple of months later. His artist brother, Josef, with whom he had collaborated on a number of projects, was arrested soon after the Nazi invasion and sent to the camps. He died in Bergen-Belsen shortly before the end of the war. The artist Oscar Bergen was trained at the Berlin School of Art, and began his career on Germany, but he fled when Hitler came to power, settling in London where he worked for a number of newspapers and magazines including the Daily Telegraph, the News of the World, and Lilliput. After the war he emigrated to America where he became noted for his "kindly rather than critical" caricatures. A wonderful evocation of one of Czechoslovakia's cultural Golden Ages, but shadowed perhaps by the Age of Iron to come.

L: Halton & Truscott Smith; NY: Minton, Balch & Co., 1925. Pp 281, plates 8-55, frontis., plates 1-7 tipped in within text. 4to, blue cloth, gilt to front and spine, t.e.g. #148 of 1500. "This book has grown so much in the making that its ultimate bulk greatly exceeds what was originally intended. The object proposed was to illustrate systematically the development of ship ornamentation by bringing all available forms of the principal features into their proper sequence. Success in this attempt would show both where ideas and forms originated, and how far the several nations influenced one another. It would also afford a useful guide whenever, as often happens, an unknown ship, whether in a picture or in a model, was to be identified. .The evidence available for the purpose is so vast, and so widespread, that anything like a complete search was clearly impossible. It seemed best therefore to rely chiefly on the English collections and records, using foreign collections as far as possible in order to illustrate the genesis of ideas and the interrelation of forms. .The same limitations of time and space ruled out any attempt at original research into pre-Tudor conditions. The summary of the practice of antiquity and the Middle Ages, though of the shortest, yet is perhaps representative of the known evidence." -from the Preface. Slightly rubbed, else vg. A very nice copy. 700.00 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Di questa rivista annuale illustrata offriamo "tutto il pubblicato" cosi?' composto: 40 volumi che comprendono il periodo che va dal 1925 al 1980 + il volume su Pirandello (curato da Leonardo Sciascia) del 1987 e quello su Sciascia (curato da Matteo Collura) pubblicato nel 1999. L?'Almanacco Letterario Bompiani - il più importante del Novecento - temporalmente può suddividersi in due gruppi: il primo dal 1925 al 1942; il secondo (dopo una sosta di 16 anni dovuta alla guerra e ai suoi postumi) dal 1959 al 1980. La caratteristica dell?'Almanacco Letterario Bompiani è di non essere solo letterario, ma di dare grande importanza anche alla grafica, alle illustrazioni e alla pubblicità. In altre parole, dare un rilievo all?'elemento ?"visuale?", in modo assolutamente unico. A riprova possiamo citare la partecipazione di artisti come Angoletta, Zavattini, Munari, Carboni e decine di altri autori del settore. La raccolta inoltre costituisce un continuo specchio della cultura di epoche diverse: da quella fascista, a quella del dopoguerra, a quella degli ultimi anni del ?'900. Tre volumi con dorsi restaurati, qualche dorso con tracce d?'uso, altrimenti esemplare ben conservato.

        Mrs. Dalloway

      The Hogarth Press, London, 1925, Cloth Bound, Book Condition: Good Plus, Dust Jacket Condition: No Jacket, 1st EditionPUBLISHING DETAILS: True first edition, first printing of Virginia Woolf's great novel, published by her and husband Leonard at their Hogarth Press, London, in 1925. 293 pages. Size; 19 x 13 cms (7.5" x 5"). Weight; 410g (14 ounces). CONDITION: I would rate this as good plus. It is one of a set of 4 Virginia Woolf novels trimmed and rebound by The Cambridge Union Society. The plain grey cloth covers are clean and sound and the binding is tight and secure. The text is mostly clean but a number of pages do have marks and pp. 63-66 and 207/8 are reinforced with clear archival tape (see photos). The Cambridge Union Society's stamp is on the title page and back page. A still neat, very rare and collectible first edition, competitively priced to allow for the rebind. THE NOVEL:'Mrs Dalloway' details a day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway in post-World War I England. It is one of Woolf's best-known novels. Created from two short stories, "Mrs Dalloway in Bond Street" and the unfinished "The Prime Minister", the novel's story is of Clarissa's preparations for a party of which she is to be hostess. With the interior perspective of the novel, the story travels forwards and back in time and in and out of the characters' minds to construct an image of Clarissa's life and of the inter-war social structure. In 2005 the novel was chosen by TIME magazine as one of the one hundred best English-language novels from 1923 onwards. (Source: Wikipedia.)Size: 19 x 13 Cms (7.5" x 5") Pages: 293
