        Le Pont des Arts

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Brush and brown wash and brown ink and pencil on cream wove paper. Executed and signed on New Year's day, 1926 upper left corner "avec nos meilleurs voeux / P. Signac / 1.1.26." Sight size: 4-1/2"h x 5-3/4"w.Signac sketched and painted similar views of the Pont des Arts in Paris numerous times when he was not touring the countryside or travelling from port to port. Water being one of the artist's favorite motifs, the bridge itself seen here must have also played an almost daily role in his life in Paris as it was so close to the apartment he had bought in 1919, seven years earlier, his base in Paris for himself, his partner Jeanne Selmersheim-Desgrange and their daughter Ginette. The Pont des Arts (which was rebuilt in the 1980s in such a manner as to conserve the appearance and character of the bomb- and collision-damaged original) was a logical theme, a natural choice, for a painter such as Signac, not least as it would have provided him with a direct route to the Louvre-- the Palais des Arts. The bridges of Paris had long interested the artist: in 1911, he had participated in an exhibition, with Aristide Maillol, entitled Les Ponts de Paris. The Pont des Arts itself had featured in his 1912 picture Le Pont des Arts (C493), now in the Museum Folkwang, Essen; and he would return to the theme three years later in 'Pont des Arts. Automne' (C582), now in the Musée du Petit Palais, Paris. Each of these pictures and drawings have been depicted from a slightly different viewpoint, with a different composition.

White cloth-backed red cloth boards, titles to spine and front board in black. With the dust jacket. Boards a little worn and bowed, spine lettering faintly faded, half-title tanned, the occasional blemish to contents, front and rear inner hinges starting. A very good copy in a lightly chipped and rubbed jacket with tape repairs to head and tail of spine panel verso. First UK edition, first impression, presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "To Rudolf Stulik, with very best wishes of Anita Loos. London, Aug 21, 1926". Austrian-born Rudolf Stulik was a London chef whose Restaurant de La Tour Eiffel at 1 Percy Street was a favourite haunt of the Bloomsbury Group and the Vorticists, counting among its regulars Augustus John and Nancy Cunard. In the early 1960s William Roberts put his memories of the restaurant down on canvas in his painting The Vorticists at the Restaurant de la Tour Eiffel: Spring, 1915 (held in the Tate Gallery collection), which depicts Stulik in the company of his illustrious patrons, among them Ezra Pound, Wyndham Lewis and Cuthbert Hamilton. Roberts said of Stulik's restaurant: "In my memory la cuisine française and Vorticism are indissolubly linked" (The Listener, 21 March 1957). Gentlemen Prefer Blondes was first published in the US the preceding year.

        George Grosz Ausstellung

      Nachwort von Gustav Eugen Diehl. Text von Florent Fels auf französisch - mit Zeichnungen und Tafeln - EA., Obrosch., 36 S. - Reihe: Veröffentlichungen des Kunstarchivs Nr. 1. Berlin, Das Kunstarchiv Verlag, 1926. George Grosz*: Maler und Graphiker in Berlin, geb. 26.7.1893, gehört mit zu den Hauptvertretern der futuristischen Richtung in Deutschland. Von literarischen Tendenzen ausgehend, rollt Grosz auf seinen Bildflächen ("Feiertag", "Deutschland ein Wintermärchen") ein Chaos von nur durch gedankliche Beziehungen miteinander verbundenen, formal untereinander ziemlich unabhängigen Details auf, das nach Analogie eines Bilderbogens sukzessiv gegenständlich abgelesen sein will. In Einzelheiten oft außerordentlich suggestiv, fehlt diesen Bild-Mosaiken doch völlig die Einheit der Bildstimmung, die Grosz in einem früheren Gemälde "Der Liebeskranke" (1916) noch schlagend zum Ausdruck zu bringen wußte. "Der Abenteurer" von 1919 (Stadtmuseum Dresden) zeigt ihn auf dem Wege der abstrakten Malerei konsequent fortschreitend. Die bedeutende satirische Begabung des Zeichners Grosz hat sich vor allem in wüsten Anklagen gegen das alte kapitalistischmilitaristische System des vorrevolutionären Deutschland gewendet, die eigentlich schon bei ihrem Erscheinen ihre Aktualität eingebüßt hatten ("Gott mit Uns", 9 politische Lithographien). Stärkere Wirkung als diesen auf die politische Stunde eingestellten Blättern eignet seinen in demselben gesucht primitiven Stil gezeichneten sozialen Manifesten gegen den "Bourgeois", meist Anklagen brutalster Art wider die Ausbeutung des Weibes durch die Prostitution doch gibt das Zurschaustellen sexualer Anomalien auch da, wo es gegenständlich nicht geforsiert ist, wie in dem gezeichneten Selbstbildnis von 1919, seiner Graphik einen fatalen Beigeschmack des Pornographischen. Grosz ist Mitarbeiter der satirischen Zeitschriften "Die Pleite", "Der blutige Ernst" und "Der Gegner". Von seinen graphischen Folgen seien noch genannt: "Das Gesicht der herrschenden Klasse", Erste George Grosz-Mappe (12 Lithographien, 1917), Kleine George Grosz-Mappe (10 Lithographien) von seinen Buchillustrationen: "Tragigrotesken der Nacht" von W. Herzfelde "Fantastische Gebete" von R. Hülsenbeck (Malik-Verlag Berlin) "Dr. Billig am Ende" von Hülsenbeck (K. Wolff-Verlag, München) "Sonniges Land" von Bruno Schönlank (Cassirer-Verlag, Berlin) "Was Peterchens Freunde erzählen", Märchen von Hermynia zur Mühlen (Malik-Verlag). (Quelle: Thieme, Becker, Vollmer. Allgemeines Lexikon der bildenden Künstler. Seemann, 2008). - Enthält: Carl Einstein: George Grosz Gottfried Benn: Nachtcafé 1912. Gedicht, für George Grosz Marc Neven: Das Phänomen George Grosz Max Herrmann (Neisse): Ecce Homo Florent Fels: En George Grosz. L'Allemagne trouve son Daumier u.a. - Einband etwas unfrisch/kleine (fachgerecht hinterlegte) Läsur, Einband- und Seitenecken etwas geknickt, sonst gut erhalten - Entgegen der Ankündigung (S. 35) liegt das Verzeichnis der ausgestellten Arbeiten nicht bei -

        The Fables of Aesop

      Berkshire: Golden Cockerel Press, 1926. Small quarto. v, (i), 94, 1pp. A collection of Aesop's much-celebrated and much-cited fables, some illustrated with bold wood engravings by Celia M. Fiennes. In keeping the the Golden Cockerel Press' tradition of creating limited editions of classic masterworks, this representation was reprinted from Sir Roger L'Estrange's 1692 publication, reinvigorating his translation with sharp typography and modern illustrations. Bound quarter cloth with brown paper over boards and gilt-stamped title on spine, with dust wrapper. Adhesive residue on front pastedown. Minor bumps to spine and corners and wrapper shows some foxing and toning, else fine. This particular copy belonged to Alma Ruth Lavenson, whose bookplate is laid in.

Her unabashed and personal photography has since inspired generations of female photographers.

        Introduction aux Systèmes Socialistes (Suivi de : ) Les Systèmes Socialistes (2 Tomes - Complet)

      Marcel Giard 1926 - 2 vol. in-8 reliure demi-basane bordeaux, Bibliothèque Internationale d'Economie Politique, Marcel Giard, Paris, 1926, L pp., 2 ff. blancs, 5 ff., 411 pp. ; 491 pp. Remarquable exemplaire, de la propre bibliothèque du professeur Georges-Henri Bousquet (1900-1978), qui publie ici la seconde édition des "Systèmes socialistes" de Pareto. Bon exemplaire, enrichi d'annotations (dans son introduction) par le professeur Bousquet, et d'une très belle et longue annotation de son fils Charles.G.-H. Bousquet, qui deviendra professeur aux facultés d'Alger et de Bordeaux, était juriste de formation initiale (docteur en droit en 1923 avec une thèse sur "L'évolution sociale en Hollande 1914-1922"). Mais il reste surtout connu comme un économiste proche de Pareto et Schumpeter, ainsi que comme un islamisant de l'école de Goldziher et Snouck-Hugronje. Bousquet était proche de son maître en sociologie Vilfredo Pareto, dont il servit fortement la pensée. Les deux hommes entretinrent une correspondance, et Bousquet visita son vieux maître dans sa villa de Céligny, vers Pâques 1923. On peut signaler que le Professeur Bousquet est l'un des rares économistes français contemporains à être plusieurs fois cité dans la monumentale Histoire de l’Analyse Economique de écrite par Joseph Schumpeter à la fin de sa vie. Les deux hommes se connaissaient personnellement depuis une première rencontre à Vienne en 1923. Langue: Français [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Lemmiklaulud (Favourite Songs) [Poetry Collection]

      Noor-Eesti, Tartu 1926 - Estonian language. Octavo 13 x 17 cm. Weight 130 gr. Wrappers, 71 [1] pp. The book is in Very Good condition, without any losses, remarks and damages. Frayed cover corners with creases across, cover shows some rubbing and yellowing with light brown stains (oxidation); internally minor foxing to the sheets edges. Current seldom seen verse collection is considered as the peak of poet's creativity. Collection consists of 39 love poems with elements of Futurism and represented by the adolescent indiscipline of young poet. Hiir's verses show traces of the vulgar dadaism with which he advertised himself at the outset. His feeling for strict form is deliberately in abeyance, and his experiments lead him to write verses with octopodic lines and to replace iambus with dactyl. The strongest side of his poetry not in the thoughtful development of a theme, but in its mood, which carry optimism and joyfulness more, than any other poet of the time. Book's amazing avant-garde constructivist cover design created by outstanding Estonian artist Jaan Vahtra (1882-1947), one of the most bright talents of Estonian modern art, a founding member of the Estonian Art Group of Cubism and Constructivism. Erni Hiir (Ernst Hiir) (1900-1989) was the most influential Estonian futurist poet. In his love poems instead of using beautiful erotic words, author distances himself from Standard Estonian and created a new poetic lexicon of onomatopoetic expressions, glossolalia, sounds, syllables, word fragments and foreign words to express the tender feelings of the heart. Poems of Hiir also were closely connected to modernity and the technical innovations of the new world, revealing interest in speed and motion. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Housed in a blue cloth clamshell. Dinsdale focuses primarily on the work of Scottish engineer John Logie Baird, the first person to produce televised pictures of objects in motion. Baird produced the first television image in outline and transmitted the first pictures between two televisions. Of Baird's early experiments, Dinsdale writes: "Baird's weird apparatus - old bicycle sprockets, biscuit tins, cardboard discs and bullseye lenses, all tied together with sealing wax and string - failed to impress those who were accustomed to the shining brass and exquisite mechanism of the instrument maker. The importance of the demonstration was, however, realized by the scientific world." (p 49). Although he did not succeed in producing a viable system of television, Baird paved the way for future technical development. HBS 67950. $4,500 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Seven Pillars of Wisdom [Presentation Copy]

      London: [For the Author by Manning Pike and H.J. Hodgson, 1926. First Edition. Near Fine. Extremely scarce privately printed edition, which was one of only 170 complete copies. Initialed for this reason by Lawrence at xix: "Complete copy i.xii.26 T.E.S" and with "Roberts" marked out and replaced with "K[ennington]." Additionally inscribed by Lawrence to his attorney regarding the book's publication: "E.G. Eliot from T.E. Lawrence with apologies for the trouble it is going to bring him. 30.XI.26." Original reddish-brown morocco gilt binding, raised bands, with top edge gilt and others uncut. Pictorial endpapers by Kennington. Slight rubbing to extremities but overall an excellent and complete copy with 65 lithographic plates and a striking frontispiece. As is often the case, the 'Prickly Pear' plate is present here, but not the two Paul Nash illustrations on pages 92 and 208, nor the Blair-Hughes-Stanton wood-engraving that illustrated the dedicatory poem in some copies. "A very rare presentation copy of the author's epic masterpiece, with a prescient inscription by Lawrence to his lawyer, warning him of potential legal problems following publication" (Sotheby's). A remarkably accurate military history interwoven with heroic adventure and spiritual insight, The Seven Pillars of Wisdom was itself an epic in its creation given Lawrence's multiple manuscripts and drafts that slowed the final release for almost a decade. During the process, Lawrence remained grateful to his subscribers and guaranteed that there would be no library or review copies in his lifetime; and he worked to ensure that each copy in the subscribers' edition would be unique. As Lawrence's inscription on this copy predicted, Edward G. Eliot would ultimately need to handle legal issues related to trust and tax arrangements connected to the book's release. An exceptional presentation copy. This copy last sold at auction in 2012 at Bonhams for 50,450 pounds, roughly $80,000 at the historical exchange rate. Near Fine.

        [Photo Album]: "Stonyhurst" Waterbury, Connecticut and Yellowstone

      Yellowstone, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, 1926. Very Good. Oblong octavo. Black leather over paper boards measuring 7" x 11.5". Assembled are 224 sepia toned and black and white photographs affixed to stiff black paper in various sizes ranging from 1.5" x 3" to 7" x 9". A few pages detached but present, rubbing, and short tears else very good. A photo album compiled by Milton S. Mulloy which begins in 1923 with pictures from his college days at Stonyhurst College in Waterbury, Connecticut and continuing through his travels over the next few years. Many of the excursions are in the New England area including, swimming in a river in Salisbury, New York, a visit to Amherst, Smuggler's Notch, Vermont. The mountains, waterfalls, and trees of the region are documented in the photos as well as group photos and one of a friend captioned "Dapper Dan" posing on top of "Chapel Tower." Mulloy's expeditions also took him to the midwest including a short stay in Montana en route to Yellowstone National Park. In over 100 photographs Yellowstone is depicted in all it's glory from the "Paint Pots" to Old Faithful "in action." There are images of Artist's Point, the Great Falls, and various wildlife including a buffalo and a bear captioned, "the holdup near." Within the album are two panoramas from the geyser basin of West Thumb and of the wharf, as well as a photograph of a Native American in full regalia captioned "one of the originals." A wonderful collection of photographs with an emphasis on Yellowstone.

She served in Europe as a combat correspondent during World War I, after which she moved to Los Angeles and was employed by director Lois Weber as an assistant, in which position she received a thorough apprenticeship in the film industry. She began writing scripts and attracted the attention of Mary Pickford. The pair began a long relationship as both friends and artists, with Marion serving as Pickford's official screenwriter. She wrote many of Pickford's most famous and memorable silent films as well as many other of the great successful pictures of the 1920s and 1930s, and has been credited with writing 300 scripts and over 130 produced films. Her influence resurrected the career of Marie Dressler and resulted in her greatest glory, and her scripts for Marion Davies are among the most memorable of that actress' oeuvre. She died in 1973, one of the most respected names in Hollywood history. Dupont.
