        The Original Charleston. Musique de Cecil Mack et Jimmy Johnson dansé par Joséphine Baker dans l'Hyper-Revue des Folies Bergère "La Folie du Jour" ...

      Paris: Editions Francis Salabert, [1926]. First Edition thus. Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Quarto Original bifolium sheet music with pictorial covers, loosely inserted singlesheet, letterpress recto only. A little rubbed externally, with a soft diagonal crease through the front cover, but overall a very good example. Uncommon, just 3 copies listed by Worldcat (Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, Biblioteca Comunale di Trento, Zentralbibliothek Zurich). <br><br><br />In 1926 Baker left the Revue Negre to join the Folies Bergère and her success became a sensation. The Charleston formed the finale of a frenetic show, the critic André Rouverge writing in the Mercure de France that "the Charleston, as danced à la Baker, fairly boils over with diabolic intensity". This score features a blissful dancing La Baker by R. de Valerio on the cover, and loosely inserted is a singlesheet "Théorie du Charleston" by Pradère-Niquet, Professeur de l'Académie Baraduc, giving detailed instructions for the dance.

        Winnie-the-Pooh. With Decorations by Ernest H. Shepard.

      London: Methuen and Co, 1926. Signed extra limited edition, number 10 of 20 copies on Japanese vellum signed by both author and illustrator. Quarto, original vellum. Inscribed with an original poem handwritten in Milne's hand as follows, "Vincent Seligman His Book. I know a bank where Vincent goes, And what he does God only knows, But something shady, I suppose. Yet he respects the worst of crooks Whose partiality for books Leads him to buy a Pooh-de-luxe. Doubtless the vellum covering Desired him, and he thought the Haine The pass-book of some Banker King. October, 1927. A.A. Milne." The recipient, Vincent Seligman was a banker who ran the London bank Seligman Brothers. He and his wife Barbara were close friends of the Milnes. In 1923 Seligman dedicated his book, Oxford Oddities, to A.A. Milne and, soon after the publication of the Pooh books, Milne gave prototypes of Pooh and Piglet soft toys to Barbara. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh has been considered a classic of children's literature almost since its publication" (Cooper & Cooper). In 1925, A.A. Milne purchased "a Sussex farmhouse for use as a weekend and holiday alternative to the family's London home... [that would] provide the setting for the stories he now started to write about [his son] Christopher's toys... Winnie-the-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner [its companion volume, published 1928] are, on their own terms, more successful as works written for children than anything else produced during children's literature's Golden Age" (Carpenter). "Ernest H. Shepard's illustrations, modeled after the actual toys, show character and movement in simple line vignettes, which add so much to the books that most people consider them to be inseparable from the texts" (Silvey).

        The Tragical History of Young King Cole.

      Venice: G. Zanetti,, 1926. By Didymus Belcampus. Octavo. Original cream-coloured wrappers, coloured illustrations on front and back. Housed in a flat-back cloth box made by the Chelsea Bindery. Title page printed in red & black, letterpress printed within a red wavy-line border, 6 illustrations in the text. Light soiling to covers, small nicks and chips to spine, general paper toning. A very good copy. First and only edition, privately published, number 83 of an unspecified limitation. A quite wonderful memento of a short-lived but entertaining spat between Sir Thomas Beecham and Cole Porter: "Beecham spent most of the summer of 1926 on the Continent with Maud Cunard. In Venice he had an altercation with the American master of musical comedy, Cole Porter. Hoping for peace and quiet, he found his nights shattered by the noise emanating from a black jazz band that Porter had imported from Paris to play on a barge moored outside the Salute. (Diaghelev, also in Venice, was another complainant.) Beecham, using the pseudonym Didymus Belcampus, wrote a poem that he arranged to have printed called The Tragical History of Young King Cole, who was finally swept out to sea and drowned" (John Lucas, Thomas Beecham: An Obsession with Music, 2008, p. 168). The final illustration shows an octopus grappling with a sinking saxophone that is still blasting out a jumble of notes ("while down below her author, jazzed and jazzed in ecstasy"). Porter didn't forget Beecham's light-hearted broadside and fought back with the skit "Operatic Pills" in his 1929 revue Wake Up and Dream; the "Operatic Pills" being a play on the fact that the conductor was part of the Beecham's pills dynasty. Decidedly scarce: not in Copac or OCLC.

      An early printing, with the January, 1926 imprint, but using the original English sheets. With over 100 illustrations from numerous sources on finely produced black and white plates, and with 2 folding genealogical charts. Tall, thick 8vos, very finely bound by Bayntun-Riviere of Bath in signed contemporary three-quarter dark green morocco over green cloth, all covers with a gilt fillet lines at the borders of the morocco, the spines with six gilt framed compartments separated by raised bands gilt stopped, four compartments with gilt central fleur-de-lis and two gilt lettered, additional gilt rules at the head and tails and additional gilt lettering at the tail, endpapers marbled, t.e.g. xxix, 538; xii, 576 pp. A very fine, clean, bright and handsome set, very well preserved and unusually appealing. This is considered the foremost biography of the Medicis, and is the first history of the whole family, rather than one dealing with only the very famous or infamous members. Leaders of the city-states of Italy, they were merchants, warriors and patrons of some of the most famous and influential artists of all time. The powerful Medici family shaped not only the history of Italy, but the history of the world. They lie at the very center of all cause to the flowering of the Renaissance.

        Rien Qu'un Homme

      44 pp. play in seven acts by Deauville in response to the failed attempt at establishing an independent Catalan Republic in 1926 and the subsequent exile of many Spaniards to Brussels, including illustrator Helios Gómez. Illustrated with 8 graphic black-and-white plates after woodcuts by Gómez, signed within the plates. Large 4to. Orig. color illustrated wrpps. Some very minor soiling to covers. Brussels (Editions L'Equerre) 1928. Signed by author to title page. Limited edition of 200 copies. Max Deauville was a French-language author and member of the Belgian literary avant-garde. Helios Gómez was an important Spanish graphic artist, painter, revolutionary, anarchist-communist, and poet. His politically charged avant-garde black-and-white works were highly appreciated early in his career, prior to his exile from Spain in 1926 for his political views and activity. He returned to Spain in 1930 and was subsequently arrested multiple times for his involvement in and affiliation with Republican politics as both an artist and a politician. He was finally imprisoned in Barcelona for sedition in 1948 and was held until 1954. Very scarce; as of September 2016, WorldCat locates only one holding of this edition in North America.

        Had I not Four or Five women once that tended me?

      1926. Miranda and her Nurses"RACKHAM, Arthur, artist. "Had I not Four or five women once that tended me?" [London]. 1926. Original pen-and-ink and watercolor drawing, signed and dated "Arthur Rackham 1926" on lower left-hand corner, for the color plate facing page 7 in the Rackham-illustrated edition of The Tempest. London: William Heinemann, Ltd. [1926]. Image size: 10 x 7 5/8 inches: 254 x 194 mm. (board size: 16 x 13 5/8 inches: 406 x 347 mm.). Matted, framed and glazed. "'Tis far off/And rather like a dream than an assurance/That my remembrance warrants. Had I not/Four or five women once that tended me?" (Miranda to Prospero, Act 1, scene ii. 46).Written on the back of the watercolor in black ink, in Arthur Rackham's hand "The Tempest/No. 2 Miranda her nurses/by/Arthur Rackham".A very focused scene, with Miranda as a baby being held over a large blue and white bowl by a young woman with a sponge in her right hand. Another woman is standing over the child about to pour water from a blue and white striped jug over the babies head. Two other women are overseeing, one old woman holding a blanket facing the viewer and one younger woman kneeling facing away from the viewer. In the background is a wooden rocking crib with inlays and on the floor in the foreground is a pink rug. Lying on the rug is a small toy boat and a bowl with perhaps a piece of soap in it. The room is rather sparse with no other furniture in it. To the right is part of a window shedding some light into the room and to the left is a curtain closed shut. All the viewers attention is drawn to the center of the drawing - to the four women and the baby Miranda being bathed.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Berlin, 20. I. 1926.

      1926. 1 S. Gr.-4to. An Walter Petry: "Benjamin kann erst nächste Woche uns ein gemeinsames Stelldichein geben: er will Ihnen schreiben. Wenn Sie Sonntag früh in der Stadt sind, schauen Sie doch bitte nach mir. Auch sonst bin ich meist zu Haus ausser morgen Abend und Freitag mittag. Mit Wurm ('Schmiede') habe ich heut telephonisch gesprochen. Er sagt, über den nächsten Proustbänden schwebe noch der Voranspruch eines anderen Übersetzers, hofft aber dennoch u.s.w. Mehr wird er Ihnen wohl auch nicht sagen können, wenn Sie ihn sprechen: es lohnt sich demnach wohl kaum, die Rede darauf zu bringen". - Franz Hessel und Walter Benjamin (1892-1940) veröffentlichten 1926 im Berliner Verlag 'Die Schmiede' den ersten Band ("Im Schatten der jungen Mädchen") ihrer gemeinsamen Proust-Übersetzung, an der auch Walter Petry mitgearbeitet hat; die beiden nächsten Bände ("Die Herzogin von Guermantes") sind 1930 im Piper Verlag erschienen.

        2 typed letters signed ("Kandinsky"). Dessau, 15 May and 13 Oct. 1926.

      1926. 4to and 8vo. Altogether 4 pp. on 2 ff. To John Schikowski (1867-1934), editor of the Berlin magazine "Vorwärts", about hostility toward abstract art: "Various opponents who remained silent for several years have become courageous again by various processes and are happy about the almost universal reaction that overwhelmed the arts. But mostly they are happy because they can again write about the arts in their ancient, superficial tone [...] The attitude that abstract art has value merely as arts and crafts and can produce only pure ornamentation has become the received point of view. The latter, for example, was claimed by Carl Einstein in the 'Propylaea Art History' where he discussed my work [...]" (15 May 1926; transl.). In his letter of 13 October, Kandinsky discusses Schikowski's book on modern dance in detail. - At the time John Schikowski was considered one of the best critics of modern art and modern dance.

        "Scandal aux Abysses". Manuscrit dactylographié, signé de son paraphe, comportant de nombreuses corrections autographes. S. l. n. d.

      1926. 44 pp. ½ in-folio., montées sur onglets, reliées en un volume. Demi-reliure à petit coin en veau glacé noir, dos lisse avec titre argent. "Ainsi qu'il est précise en page de garde, il s'agit du "scénario pour un film, Ballet ou dessin animé". - L'auteur expose rapidement le thème: "[...] Neptune a épousé sur le tard Vénus. - On ne rigole pas tous les jours dans le ménage des Dieux [...]". La sauvagerie des hommes massacre allégrement le peuple de Neptune. Les plus pitoyables victimes sont les malheureux bébés phoques, jusqu'au jour où une petite sirène, Pryntyl, inversera, par tout le poids d'une tragédie, le déroulement de ce "jeu" cruel. - Célèbre pour ses romans, Céline s'essaya tout d'abord au théâtre, notamment avec L'église, pièce écrite en 1926, éditée en 1933 et jouée pour la première fois à Lyon en 1936. Il composa également des scénarios ("Secret dan l'île, 1936; "Arletty, jeune fille dauphinoise", 1948) ainsi que des ballets ("Foudres et flèches", 1948). "Scandal aux Abysses" fut composé entre 1938 et 1944 et publié chez Denoël en novembre 1950. Si le rôle de la sirène Pryntyl fut proposé à Arletty, le projet n'aboutit cependant pas et il fallut attendre 1979 pour qu'un extrait de se texte soit représenté au théâtre du Lucernaire (Paris) sous le titre "Une heur avec L. F. Céline" (spectacle créé par Stéphane Varègues et Catherine Morelle).

        Les palais impériaux de Pékin. Deux cent soixante-quartorze planches hors texte en héliotypie d'apres les photographies de l'auteur, douze dessins architectureaux et deux plans, avec une notice historique [...]. Paris & Brussels, G. Vanoest, 1926.

      1926. 3 volumes. VI, 73, [3 blank]; [3], [1 blank]; [3], [1 blank] pp. With 12 plans and 2 maps (mostly folding), and a total of 274 plates with heliotypes. Publisher's original, printed, blue paper wrappers. First edition in French of a work on the imperial palaces of Beijing by the Finnish-born Swedish art historian and professor Osvald Sirén (1879-1966). Besides the Italian Renaissance, Sirén was very interested in Chinese art and culture, and wrote various books on the subject, mostly in English. The photographs were all taken by Sirén himself, and he wrote an accompanying 40-page introduction on the so-called "Forbidden City", with two small chapters on the seaside and summer palaces. The heliotypes show mostly palaces, some from several angles, but also monuments, pavilions, statues, interiors and gardens, with short descriptions in both French and English. They give a unique view of the city in the early 20th century, since some of the buildings have vanished or are now settled in completely different surroundings. An English edition appeared simultaneous by the same publisher. - With a bookplate in each volume of W.A.S. Swets (1902-92). Minor foxing throughout, original paper wrappers heavily discoloured. Overall a good copy, wholly untrimmed and with the bolts unopened. R. Thiriez, Barbarian Lens: Western Photographers of the Qianlong Emperor's European Palaces, p. 182.
