        Autograph manuscript (fragment).

      N. p., [c. 1925]. - Large 8vo. 12 pp (numbered 29 to 40). A large portion of her essay "Composition as Explanation", published in 1925. "And so there was the natural phenomena that was war, which had been, before war came, several generations behind the contemporary composition, because it became war and so completely needed to be contemporary became completely contemporary and so created the completed recognition of the contemporary composition. Every one but one may say every one became consciously became aware of the existence of the authenticity of the modern composition. This then the contemporary recognition, because of the academic thing known as war having been forced to become contemporary made every one not only contemporary in act not only contemporary in thought but contemporary in self-consciousness made every one contemporary with the modern composition. And so the art creation of the contemporary composition which would have been outlawed normally outlawed several generations more behind even than war, war having been brought so to speak up to date art so to speak was allowed not completely to be up to date, but nearly up to date, in other words we who created the expression of the modem composition were to be recognized before we were dead some of us even quite a long time before we were dead. And so war may be said to have advanced a general recognition of the expression of the contemporary composition by almost thirty years". - In her essay, Stein connects World War I’s influence on the evolution of warfare (and the shifting consciousness of the citizens and soldiers of those nations involved) to the role of Modernism in the evolution of the arts. - Slightly browned; in pencil.

        Simulacre. Poèmes et lithographies

      Paris: Editions de la Galerie Simon [D. H. Kahnweiler], 1925. 4to (250 x 200 mm). 7 lithographs by Masson, including that for the cover. Original printed wrappers; original glassine. Some wear and a few short tears to glassine, remnants of owner's label on front free endpaper. LEIRIS'S FIRST BOOK, AND THE SECOND BOOK ILLUSTRATED BY MASSON. LIMITED EDITION, number 58 of 90 copies on vérge d'Arches from a total edition of 112 copies signed by Leiris and Masson, numbered on the justification leaf and glassine. "The 'discursive' series and the 'figurative' series that make up Simulacre exist independently of each other, according to Leiris. Nonetheless, it is difficult to believe in a simple juxtaposition of poems and lithographs. The poet who wrote several texts in [Masson's] studio at rue Blonet certainly found inspiration in certain canvases. Even if the lithographs do not directly illustrate the poems, they set up a dialogue with them" (Renée Rise Hubert, Surrealism and the Book, Berkeley, 1988, p. 28). Artist & the Book 191; Monod 7071; Saphire 5-11. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.

        Album of Film Stills [Cover Title]: Bulldog Drummond's "Third Round" by Sapper

      London: Astra, National Productions. (1925). Oblong quarto. String tied black cloth titled in gilt on front board. Bound in are 35 double-weight gelatin silver stills from the film, hole punched in the wide lefthand margin. Soiling on the verso of a couple of images, tiny nick in the margin of one, modest wear on the boards, a couple of the holes are pulled through, overall very good; the images are slightly curled, else otherwise fine. Issued by the production company, likely for a participant in the film, for the 1925 English silent film featuring a popular and intrepid English detective hero (there have been approximately 30 films featuring the detective over several decades). This film, directed by Sidney Morgan and featuring Jack Buchanan as Drummond, apparently revolves around boxing and shady scientists - with several images of both, including much scientific apparatus. According to one summary from the British Film Institute catalog: "Merchants hire a foreign criminal to kidnap a scientist for the secret of manufacturing diamonds." Vivid images, certainly rare, and possibly unique. Contemporary collections of images from any silent film are very uncommon. .

        [JAMES NORTHFIELD] Water will not harm Warner's rust-proof corsets

      [Melbourne] : Syd. Day, [c. 1925]. Hanging sign for shop display, colour offset print on paper, 400 x 280 mm, signed in image at lower left 'Hackett & Northfield'; on original backing board, with two eyelets at top edge; in good condition, a mild amount of rubbing and wear to the edges. A poster format advertisement for Warner's Corsets, designed by the celebrated Melbourne commercial artist James Northfield in collaboration with a lesser known artist, Hackett (first name unknown). Northfield is best known for his striking travel posters of the 1930s and 40s. This design is from slightly earlier in his career and appears to be unrecorded in Australian collections.

        Manuscript Chess Match.

      [France: , 1925?]. Two notebook leaves (220 x 125 mm) with manuscript chess moves to rectos only. Together mounted, incorporating a photograph of Duchamp and Vitaly Halbserstadt, and framed (460 x 370 mm). Very minor creasing and a small chip to top edge of one leaf, excellent condition. A rare manuscript record of an apparently unrecorded chess game played between Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968) and Henri Bertrand, victoriously inscribed by Duchamp, "D'accord! à bientôt. Marcel". The moves themselves are in the hand of Duchamp's friend and fellow French chess master Vitaly Halberstadt (1903-67), who was the winner of the 1st Paris City Chess Championship in 1925. Framed together with the Duchamp-Bertrand game is the record, again in Halberstadt's hand, of a game between Halberstadt and Leon Schwarzmann (1887-1942), a Polish-French chess master and winner of the 2nd Paris City Chess Championship, who later died in Auschwitz. The game is not dated, though another game between Duchamp and Bertrand (again won by the artist) is recorded in 1925, during the Third French Chess Championship (for which Duchamp had designed a poster), held at Nice. This, plus the convergence of these early winners of the Paris City Chess Championship, certainly suggests a date in the mid 20s. This period marks the beginnings of Duchamp's most intense engagement with the game. It was around this time that he allowed rumours to spread that he was going to abandon art altogether in order to devote himself entirely to chess. Though he remained an artist, he was also a serious and successful chess competitor, and while at the same time working the ideas and symbols of chess into his art. He even went so far as to remark, "The chess pieces are the block alphabet which shapes thoughts; and these thoughts, although making a visual design on the chess-board, express their beauty abstractly, like a poem... I have come to the personal conclusion that while all artists are not chess players, all chess players are artists." Halberstadt and Duchamp were close friends, and the photograph incorporated here shows them both intent upon a game (out of shot). The pair also collaborated, in 1932, on a chess manual dedicated to the idea and problems of the endgame, "L'Opposition et les cases conjugées sont réconciliées", with Duchamp designing the layout and cover.
