        The Decameron by Boccaccio, illustrated with annotated Original Etchings by Clara Tice; a sample book of her book plates; a collection of plates before letters of her designs for "The Decameron"

      Ca. 1925.. A small collection of proofs, book plates and an extra-illustrated "Decameron" by Clara Tice, sometimes called the "Dada It Girl". Tice (1888-1973), also known as the "Queen of Greenwich Village," was a diminutive figure who walked the Village in outlandish clothes and her Russian wolf hound. She studied under Robert Henri, one of the founders of the Ashcan School of Art and participated in the first exhibition of Independent Artists which opened April 1, 1910, controversial for its revolutionary "no jury, no awards" concept. Other organizers included John Sloan and William Glackens. Tice (who also backed the endeavor financially) was one of only three artists who sold a piece from this important show. She was later introduced to Walter and Louise Arensberg, wealthy patrons of the arts, and became a member of the group of artists - among them Duchamp, Man Ray, Charles Demuth, Beatrice Wood and Tice - which came to be known as the Arensberg Circle. She exhibited often at galleries and worked as an illustrator for magazines and newspapers, such as Vanity Fair, Rogue, Cartoons Magazine, The Quill, Greenwich Village and Bruno's Weekly. From 1920, she illustrated books with her characteristic whimsical and naughty line drawings, which were mostly published privately by the Pierre Louys Society and Boni & Liveright to avoid censorship. She was especially known for female nudes, and also for her extraordinary ability to convey movement with just a few deft strokes in her drawings. The collection includes: 1. The limited edition of "The Decameron" in two volumes, unusually signed by Clara Tice and illustrated by the ORIGINAL ETCHINGS for the plates, including two copies of three plates which were re-engraved due to immodesty, and one image (etched in two states) that does not appear to have been published. Limited to 2000 numbered sets, published by Boni & Liveright and numbered 334, with an early booksellers note in pencil beneath. Two volumes, tall 8vo. Vol I; xxix, (1), 374pp, 28 illustrations, comprising 24 plates on the "List of Illustrations", 22 etchings & 2 printed illustrations WITH 2 extra etchings not listed and probably not published and 2 other etchings in duplicate. (p.127 & 128; p. 189, p. 263). Vol 2; x, (2), 355pp, (1 printer's colophon), 24 illustrations (22 etchings & 2 printed illustrations). Original black publisher's cloth, gilt title on spine, gilt medallion of Boccacio on the front board and blind stamped, yap edges, uncut, spines a trifle sunned. OCLC: 456818. The etchings are pre-letters, and most have a handwritten title beneath with a page number that differs from the location in the "List of Illustrations", indicating the etchings were captioned before their final location was established. There are three plates that were deemed too risque, and re-engraved. In two of these, the unexpurgated plate is signed and numbered by the artist in pencil. The re-engraved, more modest plate appears next, one one with the notation "engraver" in pencil, and signed in the etching plate by Tice. Two plates were censored for their rather modest portrayal of female anatomy; the third disguises the male bed partner as a gentleman rather than a priest with his bald pate. 2. A series of 66 plates meant for extra-illustrating "The Decameron". 22 etchings, 6 3/4 x 10". One plate duplicated; one with a hand written caption and page position (with) 44 plates of the published illustrations for the book, with printed captions. In a green buckram chemise, mistitled as illustrations for Balzac's Droll Stories. With a clipping from an early booksellers catalogue for the set, citing 69 plates. 3. A sample book of Tice's book plates. The slim booklet is covered with wonderful hand made paper with a design of brown lozenge shapes floating on a ground of olivey green, with "Made in England" stamped at the foot of the first page, the paper being watermarked "Ellerslie". There follow 14 original etchings and one reproduction of Tice's book plates. One of her own bookplates is first, a design with a peacock and a nude women, (a constant theme). Other themes include dance, butterflies, horses & flowers. 4. An early photocopy of Tice's 7th exhibition, a one-woman show at Schwartz Galleries, Oct 22-Nov. 10, 1934. An unusual assemblage, giving a glimpse of the pre- publication decisions for this Decameron.

Leinenmappe mit Fronttitel. Sehr seltene Mappe des Berliner Radierers, in kleinster Auflage, 1 Radierung |signiert|. In den uns zugänglichen Bibliographien ist diese Folge nicht verzeichnet. Da sie auch nicht unter den beschlagnahmten Werken des Polunbi-Kataloges zu finden ist, dürfte die Auflage nur sehr klein gewesen sein. Denn Grund zum Verbot hätte es zweifelsfrei gegeben: wenn auch nicht derb pornografisch, so sind doch deutlich eindeutig diverse Liebesspiele dargestellt. Das Titelbild zeigt ein Halbportrait eines Paares; sie mit leicht verrutschtem Dekolleté. Darunter ein Mann mit Zeichenstift; wohl ein Selbstportrait des Künstlers. Jede Radierung in der Plate monogrammiert. Titel-Radierung im Papier gebräunt, sonst gutes Exemplar. ------------------------ |English description available on request.

Over all rather good copy in finest binding.. 'Of this edition 5 copies have been printed on vellum and 225 on Fabriano hand-made paper with the original types of Bodoni' (Kolophon, Bl. 54 f. verso). *Man findet für die relativ grosse Schrift die Spezifizierung '16pt Bodoni Catania' (Ober- + Unterlängen); mit dem Typometer gemessen ist der Schriftgrad der Versalien 12 Pt., d.h. 1 Cicero. - "The Officina Bodoni was a private press operated by Giovanni Mardersteig from 1922. [..] The Officina Bodoni is known for printing books of the very highest quality and the finest craftsmanship." (Wikipedia), resp. "1922 in Montagnola (bei Lugano) gegründete Privatpresse, die 1927 nach Verona verlegt wurde. Sie besitzt das Recht, die Originalschriften G. Bodonis nachzugiessen." (http://universal_lexikon.deacademic.com/280265/Officina_Bodoni). -- Elizabeth Barrett Browning (Coxhoe Hall, Durham 1806-1861 Florenz). "Die durch ein langes Krankenlager in ihrer Jugend geistig frühreife Dichterin" liess nach den ersten, 1826 veröffentlichten Gedichten "rasch weitere Werke folgen [..]. Erst ihre Liebesgedichte an Robert Browning, mit dem sie sich 1846 verheiratete, 'Sonnets from the Portuguese' [..], 1850, waren dichterisch wirklich bedeutend. In 44 Sonnetten wurden erstmalig von einer englischen Dichterin die persönlichen Gefühle als Liebende und Geliebte zum Ausdruck gebracht, sie setzten die Sonnettradition der englischen Renaissance und Romantik würdig und formvollendet fort [..]." (Rüdiger/Koppen 1, 4. Aufl. 1969, p. 131 f.). - Vgl. auch / also cfr. Carol Rumens, Poem of the week: Sonnets from the Portuguese, No 43, by Elizabeth Barrett Browning : "From its brilliantly unassuming beginning, Barrett Browning's Sonnet 43 - better known for its opening line, 'How do I love thee?' - unfolds into a merging of erotic and mystical experience that recalls Dante. Every good sonnet strives to encompass the world in its grain of sand: occasionally, there's an inner mass that defies all logic. It's as if a Life had been written on the back of a postcard. This week's poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning has that quality. It's the penultimate sonnet in a sequence of 44, Sonnets from the Portuguese, the one that begins, 'How do I love thee?' [etc.]." (In: The Guardian, Monday 24 May 2010, online). -- 'Ex Libris Martin Bircher' (Zürich 1938- 2006 ibid.), Barockforscher, Buchhistoriker, Sammler und Hochschullehrer, u.a. Direktor des Goethe-Nationalmuseums in Weimar (1992), Direktor der Fondation Martin Bodmer und Leiter der Bibliotheca Bodmeriana in Cologny bei Genf (1996-2003). "Bircher entstammt der Zürcher Familie Bircher-Benner [..]. Er studierte Germanistik, Anglistik und Kunstgeschichte an der Universität Zürich und promovierte 1965 [..]. An der Universität Zürich, die ihn 1982 zum Titularprofessor ernannte, hielt er regelmässig Lehrveranstaltungen. [..] Als leidenschaftlicher Büchersammler redigierte er die Zeitschrift 'Librarium', und er konnte [..] seine eigene Sammlung [..] später an die Bibliothek der University of California, Berkeley [verkaufen] (nicht ohne bereits erneut Pretiosen der Literatur zu sammeln). [..]. Schwerpunkte Birchers waren die deutsche Barockliteratur [..] sowie die Edition von (vergessenen) Texten dieser Zeit, die Buch- und Kunstgeschichte. Aber er war auch mit der Shakespeare-Forschung vertraut, mit den aus Zürich stammenden oder in Zürich wirkenden Autoren des 18. Jahrhunderts (Salomon Gessner, Johann Heinrich Füssli), und Stefan Zweig oder Else Lasker-Schüler." (Wikipedia; Bircher nicht in HLS).

Joyce himself contributes original work the fifth number, with the first appearance of his Anna Livia Plurabelle passage (as ‘From Work in Progress’, in English), whilst first French translations of work by D.H. Lawrence, William Carlos Williams, E.E. Cummings, Hope Mirrlees, Ernest Hemingway, Italo Svevo, and Rilke appear throughout the other volumes.The expense of producing the magazine became excessively burdensome on Monnier - soon after she would sell her library in order to pay off the debts incurred - but in its year long life-span it marked an important contribution to the international modernist scene.

        Der Prozess (The Trial)

      Berlin, Verlag Die Schmiede. 1925, 1925. First Edition in German. 8vo. Fine in publisher's dark green cloth, very minor edgewear. In a fabulously fragile black, white and blue dust-wrapper with very minor edgewear and chipping and a 1.5cm triangle of loss to the base of the spine just below three small holes. The front and rear panels are robust and bright but the spine panel is toned and dry. Two items of publisher's promotional material are loosely inserted. Internally bright and fresh. A major highspot, particularly scarce in a wrapper. This particular novel can be seen on a myriad of different levels, superficially as a cautionary tale of beaurocracy run amok, but also as a sensitive investigation into the manner in which individuals have to fight to retain (or even attain) their own sense of identity and destiny in the midst of a universe which is, largely (well, pretty much completely if you happen to be a bookdealer), absurd and insane. A fabulously good copy of a very important work from an author now widely considered to by one of the most original and influential fiction writers of the twentieth century.

        JÜDISCHER ALMANACH AUF DAS JAHR 5686

      Prague: Keren Kajemeth Lejisrael, 1925. Very Good. Digest sized, in gray wrappers printed in black and gold. Paper loss to the spine ends; half an inch at the crown and 1.5 inches at the base with some attendant tearing and creasing, though wrappers are still very firmly attached. Covers with a few very shallw chips and some diagonal creasing. Bookplate of the Jewish Cultural Reconstruction on the inside of the front wrapper, with two small ink stamps in Hebrew on the preliminary pages. Text edges browned with a little softening to corner tips, though internally clean. About Very Good, with the binding sound and all pages intact. The JÜDISCHER ALMANACH was a yearbook of sorts printed in German and Hebrew, published for the Zionist community in Prague. Circulation would have been small, given that the majority of Jews in Prague at that time period would have been fully assimilated. The ALMANACH contains a variety of information relevant to orthodox Jewish life: tables documenting feast days and those for fasting, details concerning the population of Jews in various European cities, charts chronicling the feast days, fast days, and high holy days throughout the year, a chart detailing how many bar mitzvah's took place, and 14 pages of advertisments for Jewish businesses. There are several pages with black and white photos of Palestine, Tel Aviv, Jaffa, and other cities within the Holy Land. The majority of the ALMANACH is dedicated to a variety of essays, fiction, and notable events which took place in Jewish communities around the world. Notably, it contains a short piece by Franz Kafka entitled "Tagebuchnotizen über ein jüdisches Theaterensemble," a diary entry concerning an experience he had with a Jewish theater troop, published just one year after his death. Also contains a 12 page piece entitled "Rëubeni und Molcho" by Kafka's friend and literary executor Max Brod, a chapter excerpt from his (then) forthcoming novel, as well as a short piece entitled "Pech" (Misfortune) by Sholem Aleichem. Rare; OCLC locates a single copy in the Czech Republic's National Library. While it is certainly an obscure and interesting Kafka item, more importantly, it is an incredible social document about orthodox Jewish life prior to the war years, as well as the Zionist community in Prague and the surrounding regions. Given its fragility and the fact that it survived the horror of the war years, we find it nothing short of miraculous.

Some minor wear, mostly to spines as usual, a few tears in places, December has larger loss (about one third) to backstrip, otherwise a very good set, well preserved in a leather backed collector's box. The third story in the series featuring Professor George Challenger, one of the most memorable characters in speculative fiction. Doyle's other great character beside Sherlock Holmes, Challenger had already starred in two novels 'The Lost World' (1912), and 'The Poison Belt' (1913) and would later appear in 'When the World Screamed' and 'The Disintegration Machine'; Brilliant, witty, insufferable, and blessed with a booming voice and a huge black beard, Challenger is an eccentric and able champion of the human race. Given the author's preoccupation with Spritism at this time, 'The Land of Mist' turned out to be a psychic adventure. Green & Gibson A37, A41, McIlvaine D133.20.

        OUR SOUTH AMERICAN TRIP [Cover Title]

      Buenos Aires, [1925]. Very good +. Commercial oblong folio album in textured leather covers. String bound, approximately 11.5" x 15.5". Gilt titles (including Perkins' name) stamped to front. 49 leaves, 46 with photographs, postcards and various scrap materials mounted both recto and verso with final 3 pages blank. 177 black and white snapshot photographs in various sizes, most approximately 5.75” x 3.5”. Also with: 72 photographic postcards as well as several ephemeral articles including letters, business cards, hotel receipts, programs, menus, invitations, booklets, etc. Leather flaking at cover edges with a bit of dry rot. Slightly worn at page ends, a few elements apparently perished. Otherwise well preserved with contents generally very good or better. Scrapbook and photograph album belonging to Fred W. Perkins, then Chief of the Office of Motion Pictures for the United States Department of Agriculture, chronicling his trip and work as motion picture photographer for the U.S. delegation attending the first Pan American Congress of Highways, held in Buenos Aires in October, 1925 (with 14pp. program and other scrap from same present). Images begin as the party, aboard the S.S. Santa Ana, makes its way through the Panama Canal, headed south along the western coast of South America, capturing the party’s meetings with dignitaries as well as the citizens and environs of Panama City, Talara (Peru), Lima, Mollendo (Peru), Tocopilla (Chile), Antofagasta (Chile), Chanaral (Chile), Coquimbo (Chile), Valparaiso (Chile), Santiago (Chile), Buenos Aires, Montevideo (Uruguay), Rosario (Brazil), Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro.

The album carefully records the delegation's travels, with all photographs meticulously captioned, and ends with a photo of the delegation being received by President Coolidge upon its return. The meeting was the first of many cooperative gatherings between the United States and the Central and South American countries who would come to develop the Pan-American Highway, Earth’s most vast roadway network. But for an approximately sixty-mile break along the Panama-Colombia border, it stretches continuously from Alaska, just south of the Arctic Circle, to the Southern tip of Chile, connecting all of The Americas. An extensive album of clearly captioned photographs, travel receipts, business and calling cards, programs, and the like. A important memento, with expertly crafted images of not only the delegation’s activities, but also Perkins at work as an early film documentarian.
