        The Writings of William Blake. In Three Volumes. With: The Pencil Drawings of William Blake.

      The Nonesuch Press, London - 1925 (1927 for the Pencil Drawings volume). One of 1500 copies, number 937 (perhaps, the last two numbers are somewhat illegible). Number 1337 of 1550 copies of The Pencil Drawings of William Blake. The writings are bound in marbled boards with cream colored vellum spines. 11 by 8 inches. The Pencil drawing volume is ¾ cloth with beige paper covered boards, measuring 11 5/8 by 9 ½ inches. All housed in tri-folding cloth cases within red cloth slipcases having red leather spines. Titles in gilt on the spines, with five raised bands. Pagination for the writings as follows: xviii, 364; vii, 397; vii, 430 pp. All plates present as called for. The pencil drawing volume is paginated xvi, followed by 82 plates with a page of text preceding each. Complete as issued. A comprehensive gathering of poems, letters and annotations to various people, including Swedenborg, by William Blake, accompanied by many of his illustrations. These writings and illustrations document his artistic vision, both through his finished works and through his thoughts conveyed in his letters. William Blake was a British poet, artist and printmaker, overlooked during his lifetime, but now considered to be one of Britain's best artists. Blake created prophetic poetry and visual arts, often mixing words and images, and which perhaps led many of his contemporaries to consider him mad. Books in GOOD+ to VERY GOOD condition. Spines rather browned and foxed, with minor foxing to the page edges and endpapers. Volume two and three with moderate foxing to the endpapers. General fading to the covers. The Pencil Drawing volume has moderate to heavy foxing to the endpapers, with minor scattered foxing throughout, mostly along the fore edge. Pages intermittently unopened throughout. The tri-folds and slipcases all bear some scuffing, minor soiling and general fading/uneven darkening, most noticeable along the hinges. Leather spines of the slipcases with some scuffs and a few small chips missing. Faint dampstain/area of discoloration to the lower edge of the slipcase of volume 3. The slipcase on the drawing volume is rather mottled along the extremities. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Two original images transmitted in 1925 by "Radiovision" by C. J. Jenkins

      C. FRANCIS JENKINS [1925] - Two original images transmitted in circa 1923 by “Radiovision” and his written and inscribed 1925 book, "Vision By Radio" Washington DC, C. Francis Jenkins (1867-1934) TWO OF THE FIRST IMAGES CIRCA 1923 TRANSMITTED BY C. FRANCIS JENKINS OVER RADIO WAVES USING HIS MECHANICAL TELEVISION TECHNOLOGY. Two of the actual photographs he transmitted c1923. As far as we know there is one original in the Library Of Congress in the copyright collection and seven others with the same provenance as ours, now in a private television museum. We know of no others in public or private collections. [Sybil Almand] transmitted Photograph circa 1923: 4 1/2” x 2 13/16”, image 3 3/8” x 2 3/8”. Verso stamped in purple ink: “ This photograph was sent /and received by Radio./ Jenkins Laboratories/Washington, D.C.” [Black and white photograph, head and shoulders image of Sybil Almand] Sybil Almand was on the staff of Jenkins Laboratories and, hence, was one of the first television researchers in the world. She may have been the first woman involved in television research but this needs further research. Photograph reproduced in Jenkin's 1925 book, Vision By Radio, on page [19]. On page 17, it states: “ This and succeeding pages are examples of photographs received by radio from a distance by the Jenkins system, some of them from Washington to Philadelphia, and represent the best work done in 1922, 1923, and 1924. “ The two transmitted "radiovision" photographs are unique and incredibly important in science and history of television. Capt Kurado transmitted Photograph circa 1923: 2 13/16” x 3 7/16”, closed tear in blank space to right of text 5/8” long. ”. Front Japenese character roughly translate to "On September 26, 1923, I visited to observe the radio transmission of a high-speed motion picture at ?? of Mr. Jenkins. Kuroda". Verso stamped in blue ink: “ This photograph was/ sent and received by Radio/ Time/Distance/Radio Pictures Corp./Washington, D.C.” Manuscript inscription in black ink in C. Francis Jenkins’ hand: “ First/ Japanese Radio/ message in/ native characters/sig. Capt Kurado “ Similar photograph reproduced in Jenkin's 1925 book, Vision By Radio, on page at page 38: Black and white photograph of a similar text in Japanese calligraphy, but our copy is NOT this text pictured on page 38 JENKINS' INSCRIBED BOOK: JENKINS, C.[harles] Francis. 1925. Vision By Radio. Radio Photographs. Radio Photograms. Washington, D.C.: Jenkins Laboratories, Inc. Dark green cloth, 8vo, gilt titles. (6), half title leaf, title leaf, frontis, [3], 4-139 pp., [140]. The front endpaper with the following inscription in ink: “ Mr & Mrs John Tonkin In appreciations of their interest in the author's work C.Francis Jenkins, Sept 1st. 1927" It is believed these two original photographs were laid in loosely at the pages where the image was reproduced in Jenkin's own copy of his book, Vision By Radio. Radio Photographs. Radio Photograms. 1925 HISTORICAL CONTEXT OF TWO PHOTOS & SIGNED BOOK OFFERED: Charles Francis Jenkins ( 1867-1934) is recognized as the earliest major American television pioneer. Albert Abramson, whose History Of Television, 1880 To 1941 is recognized as authoritative, tells us that as early as 1894, C. Francis Jenkins wrote an article about a device for transmitting pictures by electricity. Using the prismatic ring approach to mechanical television, which Jenkins invented, it was reported that he transmitted the image of a woman by radio on June 14, 1923. Abramson says “Whether ‘live’ or a photograph, this was the first transmission of television by radio ever reported.” ( page 60). Others, such as Bingley give credit both to Jenkins and Baird as the first to demonstrate actual television images, in 1925. However before the transmission of a Dutch wind mill moving in 1925, Jenkins and others state that he was transmitting photographs by radio in 1922, 1923, and 1924.

        Two Autograph Letters, Signed, to collector Norman James of Baltimore, Maryland, March 30 and April 17, [1925], discussing sporting books and prints, The Natural History of the Ducks, and Phillips' idea for a bibliography of American sporting books

      Wenham, Massachusetts, march 30 and april 17, [1925] - To the noted collector of sporting and color-plate books Norman James, of 300 Goodwood Road, Roland Park (see catalogues of his library, sold at Anderson Galleries, November13-23, 1928). From the first letter, dated March 30: "You gave me a wonderful afternoon yesterday and I shall long remember your house and that view - I'm looking over my few prints (about 38) and find the following which I don't remember seeing with you, although most likely you have them stowed away among those we didn't have time for: 'Snipes' drawn by J. Herring - (no date but looks very old); Wild Duck Shooting - A Good Day's Sport' N. Currier 1854 - a very fine one and I've never seen it except this one copy (large) Two figures by L. O. Earll, Pub by A.C. Zink 1880. Man with new breach loader talking to old market hunter with muzzle loader & ducks on back. "Another thing I'd like to see would be a catalogue of the old American books on sport. [Charles] Sheldon and you also would have about all of these, and I have a fair lot, but mine are more along old Am. books on birds and mammals. Guess you think I'm catalogue mad & think I will be by the time I get out the bibliog. for the duck book. - Hope to get away for west end of Alaska Penin in early May." For the privately distributed sets of his monumental Natural History of the Ducks, a finely illustrated work in four volumes, Phillips issued a separately printed Bibliography in an edition of 75 copies. The second letter, dated April 17, begins "I'm proud to think I have one or two American prints that you have not. The only worth while one is the large duck shooting picture -" Phillips also mentions The Natural History of the Ducks: "If you think of any duck 'cranks' who would be worth circularizing for my duck book, I wish you'd let me know -." Phillips did indeed pursue his idea for a catalogue: his Bibliography of American Sporting Books drew upon the library of Charles Sheldon and was published in 1930. It remains an essential reference 8vo. 1-1/2 pp.; 1 p., pen and ink on Windyknob stationery. Old folds. Fine

Housed in a black cloth clamshell case with printed cloth label on spine.Loosely laid in is a blank calling card on cream-colored stock (5 x 3 inches; 126 x 76 mm.) with the ink signature of Maxfield Parrish. Maxfield Parrish signatures are rare.This is by far the best copy of this book that we have ever seen.“Not until 1920 did [Parrish] agree to illustrate what was to become one of the most valuable children’s books ever published, Louise Saunders’s Knave of Hearts. Saunders was the wife of Maxwell Perkins, the editor of Scribner’s. They summered in Cornish, New Hampshire, and were friends with the Parrishes. In a letter to J.H. Chapin of Scribner’s, Parrish wrote on October 24, 1920: ‘The reason I wanted to illustrate the Knave of Hearts was on account of the bully opportunity it gives for a very good time making the pictures. Imagination could run riot, not bound down by the period, just good fun and all sorts of things. You must understand all this layout to be in gorgeous color. The landscapes back of the figures in the cover lining—a very beautiful affair illuminated by a golden late afternoon sun: castles, waterfall, rocks and mountains.’ Parrish relished working three years on the twenty-six paintings for Knave of Hearts. He built an elaborate castle model in his fully equipped workroom to use in the illustrations for the book…Many of the fixtures in the illustrations show handcrafted items from the Parrish household, such as elaborate hinges and a wonderful clocklike affair…that Parrish had built to let him know when the main house ran out of well water…Knave of Hearts, published in October 1925, was printed in rich colors on heavy coated paper. The illustrations were the highest quality reproductions that could be printed” (Alma Gilbert, Maxfield Parrish: The Masterworks, pp. 49-52).

        Zwei weibliche Akte.

      . Feder in Blaugrau, grün und gelb aquarelliert, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, links unten monogrammiert "DMJ". 15,3:12,6 cm.. Während ihres Aufenthalts in Frankreich entwickelte die Künstlerin eine lichte, helle, ganz auf Pastelltönen aufgebaute Farbpalette. Auch unser Blatt ist in diesem Sinne aufgefaßt und könnte somit während oder kurz nach dieser Reise um 1925 entstanden sein. Die früh verstorbene Malerin und Graphikerin Dorothea Maetzel-Johannsen erlitt durch eine Gelenkrheumatismus-Erkrankung als Kind ein Herzleiden. 1903-1907 bildete sie sich an der Gewerbeschule Hamburg mit dem Abschluß als Zeichenlehrerin aus. Anschließend war sie an der Städtischen Mädchenschule in Schleswig tätig. 1910 heiratete sie den Architekten, Maler und Graphiker E. Maetzel (1877-1955). In den folgenden Jahren hielt sie sich wiederholt in Berlin auf. Dort 1918 kurze Ausbildung bei L. Corinth (1858-1924) und Umzug nach Hamburg, wo sie sich gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann an der Gründung der Hamburgischen Sezession beteiligte. 1923 erhielt sie durch Gustav Pauli, dem Direktor der Hamburger Kunsthalle, den Auftrag, vier große Wandbilder für den Vorraum zum großen Vortragssaal der Kunsthalle zu gestalten. 1925 fast halbjährige Reise nach Paris und Chartres sowie 1929 nach Kassel, wo sie sich durch die Behandlung bei einem Arzt eine Besserung ihres Herzleidens versprach, und September 1929 Visby auf Gotland. Jedoch verstarb sie nur wenige Monate später im Alter von erst 44 Jahren an Herzschwäche. Ihre Hauptthemen waren Landschaften, Akte, figürliche Darstellungen und Stilleben. Stilistisch war sie dem Expressionismus verpflichtet, darüber hinaus hatten P. Cezanne (1839-1906), die Fauvisten und Kubisten, auch O. Redon (1840-1916) Vorbildcharakter.

        BARODA. A Large Silver Plated Presentation Phtograph Frame, Circa 1920s with Cast Arms of the State

      Unknown Maker, India 1925 - A very handsome presentation portrait photograph frame of arched rectangular shape with ribbon tied decoration to the edges, bearing the cast arms of the Maharaja of Baroda on the lower border and a coronet, scimitar and monogram on the arched top border. The monogram is probably that of Sayaji Rao Gaekwar and the frame appears to date form the 1920s. The reverse is covered in blue velvet and has a strut easel stand. It was probably intend to hold a signed portait of the Gaekwar that would have been presented to other ruling princes and important visitors such as European Royalty, Viceroys, Governors, etc. It could have been given on a visit by the Gaekwar to other palaces. Although the style of the frame is English it is probably of Indian manufacture; there are no markings other than a few scratch engraved letters or figures in an Indian scipt on the bottom edge. The copy of a photograph of two princes is not related. The giving and receiving of signed portraits in personalised frames was a very common feature of royal and aristocratic life in Europe and seems to have been enthusiastically adopted by many Indian Princes, especially after the 1877 Imperial Assemblage in Delhi. Most interior images of drawing rooms or durbar rooms in Indian palaces reveal how extensive the display of these frames was [we include an image of such a photograph in our collection to illustrate theis]. This example is particularly grand and we have left in the tarnished state in which it came to us: it would clean easily but we prefer to leave the decision about that to the purchaser. If the frame is to be exported it will incur extra charges for shipping. Size: 15 x 11 Ins Overall [39 x 28cm]
