        Lelio a Pro delfina. / Lelio a Pro delfína. [Lelio. For the Dolphin.]

      Aventinum, Praha (Prague) 1925 - First edition. Limited, numbered copy (1/1,000). Title page printed in black and orange. In publisher's black wrapper, printed white and orange. 87, (9) p. First edition of this collection of short stories by ?apek. Lelio was ?apek's debut book, published first in 1917, Pro delfína appeared in 1923. Two years later this joint edition of the two collections of short stories was also published in 1,000 numbered copies. Josef ?apek (Czech cubist painter, writer, and poet; 1887-1945) is credited as the coiner of the word "robot". Although some sources claim that the word "robot" first appeared in the short story "Opilec" of the volume "Lelio", but actually it was "automat". "Robot" appeared first in Josef's brother's 1920 play, "R.U.R." (Rossum's Universal Robots), as the name for artificial workers. Karel had difficulties to name these humanoid machines and asked Josef to find something instead of the academically sounding "Labori". Josef coined the word "Robot" deriving it from the Czech "robota", forced labor. Wrappers artistically restored. Inside clear and firm. Overall in fine condition. In publisher's black wrapper, printed white and orange First edition. Limited, numbered copy (1/1,000). Title page printed in black and orange. [Attributes: First Edition]

Interessantes Konvolut mit Original-Entwürfen von Karossen und Wagen durch die Traugott Golde AG Gera aus den Jahren um 1910 . 1925 mit einer maschinenschriftlichen Geschichte von Paul Müller der Firma von 1962 aus dem Firmen-Archiv. Karl Traugott Golde entstammte einer Bauernfamilie aus Gera und erlernte als zweitgeborener Sohn den ehrbaren Beruf eines Hufschmiedes und Wagenbauers. Am 12. Oktober 1872 gründete er in der Geraer Schülerstraße ein Wagenbaugeschäft, welches sich rasch zu einem bedeutenden Betrieb entwickelte. Ab dem Jahr 1904 gab die Firma von Traugott Golde eine angesehene Fachzeitschrift für Wagen- und Automobilkarosseriebau unter dem Titel "Deutsche Fahrzeug-Technik Verlag T. Golde" heraus, welche bis zum Jahr 1941 regelmäßig erschien. Im Jahr 1905 nahm die Firma auch den neuen Industriezweig des Karosseriebau auf und entwickelte den Fahrzeugverdeckbau als eine firmenspezifische Spezialität: die sogenannten "Golde-Blitz-Verdecke". Nach dem Tode des Firmengründers Karl Traugott Golde am 16. April 1905 führten seine Söhne Richard (geb. 5. Dezember 1872) und Alfred (geb. 4. Februar 1876) den Betrieb weiter. 1910 gründeten die Brüder zur Ausnutzung ihrer amerikanischen Patente eine Zweigniederlassung in New York unter dem Namen "Golde Patent Top Manufacturing Company". Die Gesellschaft wurde 1921 unter Übernahme der unter gleichen Namen bestehenden oHG gegründet. Zweck war die Herstellung von Automobilzubehörteilen, Windschutzscheiben, Verdecken, Stahlgerippen, Pferdewagen und Handfeuerlöschern. Von 1915 bis 1932 war der bekannte norwegische Architekt und Designer Thilo Schoder (1888-1979) Chefdesigner bei Golde. Er war als künstlerischer Beirat tätig und siedelte nach Gera über. Mit zahlreichen Design - Entwürfen und dem Bau eines Fabrikgebäudes realisierte Schoder die Verbindung von künstlerischer und industrieller Produktion. Nach 1945 Fortsetzung der Firma als Hans Traugott Golde & Co. GmbH in Frankfurt am Main. Diese stellte unter anderem patentierte Schiebedächer für Studebaker her. Das Firmengebäude der Golde’s wurde bis heute (2008) als Geraer Industrie-denkmal erhalten.

        “Mermaid” Subject.

      No date [1925]. Original watercolor with pen and ink on card, signed, 15 x 11 inches. Label on verso of “A. E. Johnson, Artists’ Agent” numbered 1669 and identifying title and artist. Very good. On a beach, a rotund merman with a ginger beard and necklace of shells examines the discarded clothes of a British Tommy while a pretty mermaid peers over his shoulder; paddling in the sea some distance away, the Tommy himself looks over in astonishment. With the hand lettered caption, “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in our philosophy.” The painting was made in May or June of 1925 for a publication unknown; a fine example of Heath Robinson’s weird and wonderful imagination.

        Mila Cirul. Moskau-Wien. Libretto con fotografie originali. 1925

      Vienna: Edizione Privata, , 1925. Legatura con punto metallico (stapled binding). Ottimo (Fine). Libretto composto da 10 fotografie originali bordate di nero, stampate da Kolliner, e stralci critici ("Urteile der Presse"). Le fotografie hanno differenti misure: cm 14,3x10,8; 16,7x6,7; 14,3x11,2. In copertina firma e data autografe della ballerina (Wien, 24-V-25) e un tassello di carta applicato con l'indirizzo scritto a inchiostro. Testo in tedesco. pp. 22,5x15. Ottimo (Fine). . "Come nel caso di molti altri ballerini, Mila Cirul ricevette la sua prima rivelazione della danza attraverso Isadora Duncan. Cominciò il suo apprendistato nella danza classica con Mordkin a Mosca, e poi con Ellen Tels, il cui insegnamento era impregnato non solo dello spirito di Isadora, ma anche della ricerca di Delsarte e Meyerhold (con il quale Mila in seguito lavorò). Annoverando Lenin tra gli ammiratori che seguirono le sue prime apparizioni pubbliche in Russia dove fece il suo debutto, Mila perseguì la sua carriera di ballerina e coreografa per diversi anni in Austria e in Germania, con Ellen Tels e un ltro piccolo gruppo di danzatori. Incontrò Mary Wigman a Francoforte nel 1916 venendone molto influenzata [..] Dopo aver lavorato a Berlino, dove fu prima ballerina all'Opera, Vienna e Hannover, si stabilì a Parigi nel 1932, dove aprì una scuola che ebbe una indubbia influenza su un certo numero di giovani ballerini. A Parigi si fece subito conoscere. Il prolifico critico e campione della danza libera, Fernand Divoire, fu uno dei suoi più grandi ammiratori, e produsse per lei diversi testi e libretti. Nel 1934 la sua interpretazione della Salomé di Richard Strausse al Théâtre des Champs-Elysées ebbe un enorme successo di critica e pubblico" (da "Modern Dance in France: An Adventure 1920-1970", di Jacqueline Robinson).

An original untitled work by the greatArt Déco commercial artist Georges Lepape. Lepape was trained at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In 1910 he began his long association with the haute couturedesigner Paul Poiret, illustrating the exclusive publicationLes choses de Paul Poiret. Vues par George Lapape (1911).He also started to produce illustrations for other leading fashion houses such as Lanvin, Doucet, Paquin and Worth. In 1916 he designed the famous cover of the first British edition ofVogue magazine. The first major exhibition of Lepape's work was held in 1920 at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs. Throughout the 1920s he was illustrator for publisher Lucien Vogel's Gazette du Bon Ton, and it was during this period that he further developed his distinctive story-telling style. Lepape was also in high demand in the French theatre world, where his commissions included work for the Ballets Russes. He continued to illustrate for major firms such as Vogue, Vanity Fair and Hermès right up until his death. Major retrospectives of Lepape's work have been staged at the Palais Grenvelle (1963), Musée des Arts Décoratifs (1966) and the Minneapolis Institute of Arts (1971).

The first book from the Fanfrolico Press (now out of print) has become famous not only for its excellence of book design and the refreshing grace and vitality of the drawings, but also because the translator has captioned the echoing laughter and unashamedness of the Greek original and made this book a manifesto of Hellenic joy to a tired and muddled modern world - a manifesto of love versus war : a statement that in delighted sex lies the only answer to the impulse of hate. Only sixty-four copies printed.'. A superb association copy of a rare edition.

      ONE OF ONLY 12 COPIES, BY THE AUTHOR OF PETER PAN. Privately Printed. [1925]. Royal octavo, original light green card covers printed in black, tied with a cream silk cord at spine fold, untrimmed, wrappers slightly creased with an abrasion mark on the front, pp [ii], 31; with 3 illustrations after engravings, signed L.W.; early inscription to the first blank; a very good copy. Privately printed in an edition of just 12 copies, as stated on the limitation page. The handful of copies located in international libraries suggest that very few copies remain in private hands. Copies are listed at the British Library and National Library of Scotland and on OCLC at Harvard; Indiana; Yale, and Stanford.No copies are held in Australian collections. Neil and Tintinnabulum is an autobiographical short story described as being “as intimate as it is unknown” by Andrew Birkin in his biography J.M. Barrie and the Lost Boys (Constable, 1979). It sheds light on the author’s relationship with Michael Llewellyn Davies (renamed Neil in the story) and is written from the standpoint of his godfather, who represents Barrie himself. It begins, for example, with the narrator chaperoning Neil on his first day at school, just as Barrie had accompanied Michael many years earlier.
