        Anni Albers, »Study Rug« (klein).

      - Ein fantastisches Sammlerstück für Ihr Zuhause: Visuell und haptisch ein herrliches Stück, stammt die Komposition »Study Rug« aus der Hand der sicherlich berühmtesten Textilkünstlerin des 20. Jahrhunderts, Anni Albers. Ursprünglich im Jahr 1926 als Wandbehang aus Baumwolle und Seide konzipiert, befindet sich die Entwurfszeichnung (Gouache auf Papier) heute im Museum of Modern Art New York. In enger Zusammenarbeit mit der Anni und Josef Albers Stiftung und durch diese authorisiert, wurde das Werk, welches ganz dem Geiste des Bauhauses verschrieben ist, in das Medium Teppich überführt. Überaus akribisch wurde an der Übereinstimmung mit dem Original gearbeitet, um eine höchst mögliche Übereinstimmung zu gewährleisten, die Limitierung auf 150 Exemplare kommt dem ebenfalls entgegen. Die manuelle Produktion des Teppichs in Indien, Nepal oder Pakistan erfolgte unter besonderem Augenmerk auf ethische Grundsätze, vor allem in Hinsicht auf Arbeitsbedingungen, Entlohnung und Kinderschutz in den traditionellen Knüpfbetrieben der jeweiligen Region und in den beteiligten Familien. Es versteht sich von selbst, dass das Material vollkommen unbelastet ist und die Wolle nur mit Pflanzen gefärbt wurde. Ein wertiges und einnehmendes Stück angewandte Kunst, ein kleiner, privater Kunstgenuss für jeden Tag! 90 x 152 cm, 100% Wolle handgeknüpft, limitierte Edition (150 Expl.), mit Echtheitszertifikat, aufwändig verpackt, mit »Care & Fair«-Label.

        [SMALL ARCHIVE RELATING TO DOC CARVER'S DIVING HORSE SHOWS]

      [Various places, 1926. Noticeable wear, creasing, and chipping at document edges. Some spotting and discoloration to two examples. Remnants of paper backing to verso of one example. Small chip to the top left corner of the photograph, with mild edge wear. Overall good. Although renowned as a marksman, William Frank "Doc" Carver also gained notoriety as the purveyor of the diving horse show, which he started around 1894 in Kansas City. This intimate archive includes the following material related to Carver and his diving horse show: 1) An original 1897 contract between H. Walker of Chicago, Carver's manager, and C. E. Cameron, representative of the Buena Vista County Agricultural Society of Alta, Iowa. The contract stipulates that Walker will "furnish Dr. W.F. Carver, Champion Shot of the World, and two diving horses, Powder Face and Cupid, and give one exhibition each day for three days commencing August 25th, 26th and 27th, at Alta Fair 1897." Both Walker and Cameron have signed the contract at bottom right. 2) Carver's retained copy of a furious two-page typed letter to the Omaha WORLD-HERALD, reacting to and seeking to refute the paper's editorial denouncing Carver's show as cruelty to animals. Carver writes eloquently of his concept behind the diving horse shows, that he "commenced the education of the High Diving Horses many years ago upon a new theory, that is, to educate them with sugar and kindness - treat them as companions and friends...." He goes on to refer to the horse diving show as "the most beautiful and sensational act the world has ever known." 3) A one-page typed letter from C.M. Young of the Iowa Humane Society to Carver assuring him that they had investigated the treatment of his horses and found that "no cruelty was practiced on your part or any unnecessary pain caused the animal in the performance. In fact, the horses seemed to be as interested in the exhibition as you were." 4) An original sepia-toned photograph, 6 1/4 x 10 1/4 inches, featuring Carver in his later years, pictured with his daughter, Lorena Carver, who was the first female rider of diving horses in Carver's show. Overall, a fascinating assortment for the serious collector of one of the finest Wild West showmen.

        Falbalas & Fanfreluches: Almanach des Modes, Présentes, Passées et Futures

      Paris: Jules Meynial, 1926. First and only edition of French illustrator George Barbier's Art Deco masterpiece, Falbalas & Fanfreluches, one of six hundred copies, complete with sixty vibrant pochoir plates. Barbier's brilliant eye for color, lively historical imagination, and expertly controlled line made him one of the most sought-after artists of the 1910s and 1920s: "His images are frozen stills, small in scale, yet self-contained and perfect" (Meyer & Harlow). Barbier designed costumes for the Folies Bergère and the Ballets Russes, depicted the latest styles in Journal des Dames et des Modes and Gazette du Bon Ton, provided advertising for luxury brands like Renault and Cartier, and illustrated a series of deluxe limited editions, including works of Laclos and Verlaine. He produced a series of fashion periodicals and almanacs for French publishers, including Modes et Manières d'Aujourd'hui (1912-1923), La Guirlande des Mois (1917-1920), and Le Bonheur du Jour (1920-1924). In Falbalas & Fanfreluches (Ruffles & Frills), a series of five illustrated almanacs issued from 1922 to 1926, Barbier finally enjoyed complete artistic control of his production. The literary content was provided by a series of stylish Parisiennes: the poet Anna de Noailles (1922); the novelist Colette (1923); the actress Cécile Sorel of the Comédie-Française (1924); the poet Marie de Régnier, writing under her pen-name Gérard d'Houville (1925); and the poet Renée de Brimont (1926). The primary appeal of the almanacs, however, lies in Barbier's extraordinary suites of pochoir plates, each requiring up to thirty stencils to achieve the characteristically rich colors. His theme is romance, past and present: from secret liaisons in distant lands to jaded lovers in modern Paris, all presented with a sympathetic wink. Some of the most famous plates include his interpretations of the Seven Deadly Sins (featuring Proust-reading opium smokers in "La Paresse" and champagne-toasting restaurant diners in "La Gourmandise"), and his series depicting the elements and the seasons. Text in French. A perfect set, in original glassine, of a landmark of Art Deco illustration. Five octavo almanacs, original color pictorial wrappers. Color vignette to each title page, followed by twelve pages of letterpress text and twelve loose pochoir plates in each almanac. Printed on Arches paper, wrappers protected by original glassine. Set housed in a custom box of wood, leather, and marbled paper, spine panel lettered in gilt, within a marbled paper slipcase.

      Privately printed 1926 - SUBSCRIBER'S or "CRANWELL" EDITION, ONE OF 170 COMPLETE COPIES (from a total edition of 211 copies), INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR "COMPLETE COPY | 1.XII.26 TES." on p.XIX, 4to., single additional manuscript correction to the illustration list, printed in red and black, 66 plates (mostly in colour) and 58 illustrations in the text (one coloured), by Roberts, Kennington, Nash, Nicholson and others, 4 folding coloured maps, decorative initials by Edward Wadsworth, original brown morocco gilt by C. & C. McLeish (identifiable by the vertical alignment of the letters "TEL" in the spine lettering), spine gilt in compartments, endpapers by Kennington, collector's brown cloth folding box, minor spotting to fore-edge and a few leaves. A fine copy of the limited edition of Lawrence of Arabia's epic masterpiece, in which he "reveals how by sheer willpower he made history" (ODNB). Following his extraordinary military and diplomatic career in Arabia, and having already become a legendary figure in the public imagination, T.E. Lawrence purchased his Dorset cottage retreat Clouds Hill in 1924 to write his book about the war. The first draft of Seven Pillars of Wisdom was completed by November 1919, but soon lost, according to the author, on Reading Station. A second draft was finished during 1922, and finally appeared as a private edition, reflecting Lawrence's love of fine printing, in the present form in 1926. An abridged version, Revolt in the Desert, was published in 1927. "Subtitled 'A triumph', its climax is the Arab liberation of Damascus, a victory which successfully concludes a gruelling campaign and vindicates Lawrence's faith in the Arabs. In a way Seven Pillars is a sort of Pilgrim's Progress, with Lawrence as Christian, a figure sustained by his faith in the Arabs, successively overcoming physical and moral obstacles." (ODNB). About 60 copies of this edition were bound by McLeish. O'Brien A040. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

A candid, on-the-set photograph of director Fritz Lang, cinematographer Karl Freund, and others working on an on a complex, double-camera shot (presumably outdoors and in cold weather, judging from the lighting and the clothing of those in the photograph) in which Maria (Brigitte Helm) attempts to warn the residents of the Lower City about an imminent flood. To accomplish this, she climbs a structure in the center of the town square, where she struggles with a large lever that will barely budge. When she finally moves the lever, the gong just above her begins to ring, alerting the populace to the danger. An extraordinary insight into the making of one of the most legendary films of all time.

Horst von Harbou worked as a still photographer for UFA on two of Lang's subsequent films, Woman in the Moon (1929) and M (1931).

        Winnie the Pooh

      London: Methuen & Co., Ltd., 1926 Illustrated by Ernest H. Shepard. First edition, first printing. Publisher's dark green cloth, with Christopher Robin and Pooh image stamped in gilt to the front board, spine lettering in gilt, top edge gilt, pictorial endpapers. Near fine, with some light rubbing to the extremities, tiny dent and a few faint spots to cloth, covers slightly bowed, otherwise fresh binding, former owner's bookplate to a front flyleaf, bright and clean interior. Overall, a very clean and pleasing copy. Winnie-the-Pooh is the second in Milne's series of children's books featuring the adventures of the teddy bear character Winnie the Pooh and his friends. Each telling an individual and complete story, the chapters of Winnie-the-Pooh could be read independently of one another. Milne created the story of Winnie the Pooh for his son Christopher Robin, who had a teddy bear named Edward Bear. In his introduction, Milne explains how Edward Bear became Winnie the Pooh, although he notes that "we can't remember whether Winnie is called after Pooh, or Pooh after Winnie." The name "Winnie" comes from a bear that the Milnes saw at the London Zoo, while the name "Pooh" is from a swan whom the fictional Christopher Robin encountered in When We Were Very Young (1924).. Illus. by Shepard, Ernest H.. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        The Sun Also Rises

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926. First edition. Very Good +. First printing with misprint "stoppped" on page 181. An attractive copy with only very minor wear to the binding or gold labels. Corners of top board turn in, very slight separation within the page block in 2 - 3 places and a few leaves near the end roughly opened, with marginal chips. In all a pleasing example of this important early 20th century novel. Hemingway's classic novel -- a Roman a clef about a group of American and British expats in Spain, centered around the characters of Jake Barnes and Lady Brett Ashley. It was based on Hemingway's own experiences in Spain in the 1920s, visiting there with his wife and friends and watching bullfighting. It is without question one of the great American novels -- perhaps the most important to depict The Lost Generation. The novel was an immense success - college students began to emulate the dress and manner of the characters and Hemingway was made a household name. Interestingly enough, the first printing of the novel was only around 5000 copies, but this, and a second printing of a few thousand copies, quickly sold out. " [Hemingway] writes as if he had never read anybody's writing, as if he had fashioned the art of writing himself." (Contemporary review in "The Atlantic"). Very Good +.

        Pertinent & Impertinent: An Assortment of Verse.

      Slim 8vo. Ditchling: St. Dominic's Press, 1926. Slim 8vo, [6], 69 pp. Illustrated with several woodcuts and wood-engravings throughout including five wood engravings by David Jones, three engravings by Eric Gill, and twelve other illustrations by Desmond Chute, Harold Purney, Joseph Cribb, Hilary Pepler, and John Beedham. . Original quarter cloth and boards, as new. Bookplate of Peter Summers FSA. Limited to 200 hand-numbered copies. Highly important association copy inscribed at the front by Eric Gill: “Printer Poet Publisher Prig PEPLER 18 xii 26”. In Gill’s typical calligraphy, with a large ‘P’ supplying the first letter to each line. By 1926 Gill had fallen out with Pepler who was the owner of the St. Dominic’s Press and this inscription is testimony to the bad feelings Gill had towards Pepler after several years of fruitful collaboration. “The Catholic convert Eric Gill, also exempt from war service while carving the stations of the cross at Westminster Cathedral, produced wood engravings for the book. This collaboration marked the beginning of nine years of close friendship between Gill and Pepler... [by 1924] there were disputes brewing between him and Gill over guild finances. Pepler came from an affluent background and favoured a pooling of resources between families, but Gill was more cautious. Further strain was caused by Gill's possessiveness as a father; he mistrusted the relationship of his eldest daughter, Elizabeth, with David Pepler. Gill left Ditchling and the guild in 1924. Pepler was devastated by his departure and for many years sought a reconciliation. David and Elizabeth married, despite the breach. Pepler missed Gill, as a working companion and as a singing companion in chapel or at rowdy press suppers. Gill on the other hand referred to Pepler as ‘Hilario Bottomlessfinance’ and resisted all pleas for a reunion.” In retrospect Gill’s hypocrisy is evident especially with regard to his relationships with his daughters, and calling Pepler a “prig” is deeply ironic.

        Der Kommandant von Kalymnos. Ein Mysterium aus dem Rokoko der Levante.

      S. Maria Formosa,, Venedig, 1926 - Venedig, S. Maria Formosa, 1926. 8°. 60 S. OLwd. EA. Nicht bei WG II. Mit den beiden Tafeln. Als Manuskript gedruckt bei Paul Kaltschmid, Wien. Eines von 100 Expl. - Leichte Gbrsp., Ebd. etw. fleckig, minimale Lichtschatten. Schönes Expl. - Herzmanovsky-Orlando, (1877 - 1954), studierte nach dem Besuch des Theresianums in Wien 1896-1903 Architektur an der dortigen TH und machte wahrscheinlich 1903 in München die Bekanntschaft Alfred Kubins, durch den er u.a. Franz Blei, Thomas Mann, Karl Wolfskehl sowie Oscar A. H. Schmitz und Gustav Meyrink kennenlernte, die seine Geisteshaltung nachhaltig beeinflußten. 1913/14 unternahm Herzmanovsky-Orlando ausgedehnte Reisen, die ihn u.a. nach England, Italien, Ägypten und Zypern führten, beendete 1916 seine Tätigkeit als Architekt sowie in der Zentralkommission für Denkmalpflege und übersiedelte 1917 aus gesundheitlichen Gründen nach Meran, wo er sich, finanziell unabhängig, ganz seinem literarischen und künstlerischen Schaffen widmen konnte. Neben einem umfassenden graphischen Werk erschien 1928 sein selbstillustrierter Roman "Der Gaulschreck im Rosennetz. Eine Wiener Schnurre aus dem modernen Barock", die neben einem Privatdruck die einzige Buchveröffentlichung zu seinen Lebzeiten war. Er schrieb phantastische Erzählwerke, u.a. sein Hauptwerk, den utopischen Roman "Das Maskenspiel der Genien" (1958), parodistische Dramen wie "Kaiser Joseph und die Bahnwärterstochter", ferner Pantomimen und Ballette sowie zahlreiche Erzählungen, die dem anekdotischen Umfeld seines Bekanntenkreises gewidmet sind. Bekannt wurde sein Werk erst durch die stark bearbeitete Ausgabe Friedrich Torbergs, die 1957-63 in vier Bänden erschien. (DBE) Deutsch [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Meynellian Science or Fox Hunting Upon System. [Introduction by Ernest R. Gee.]

      n.p.: Privately Printed for Ernest R. Gee[at the Press of August Becker, Brooklyn], 1926. Large paper. Number 1 of 28 copies on Large Paper. Frontispiece portrait by Gordon Ross. Title page vignette of a foxhound. [vi], 24, [2] pp. 1 vols. 8vo (9.25 x 6.25 inches). Original cloth-backed boards, printed paper label on front cover. An immaculate copy in its original glassine dust jacket (partially gone). In blue folding cloth box with leather label. Large paper. Number 1 of 28 copies on Large Paper. Frontispiece portrait by Gordon Ross. Title page vignette of a foxhound. [vi], 24, [2] pp. 1 vols. 8vo (9.25 x 6.25 inches). Inscribed by Gee to his best customer, the greatest American sporting book collector of all time, Alfred B. Maclay: "Alfred B. Maclay/ With the best wishes of The Publisher. Ernest R Gee. This is No. 1 of 28 copies on Large Paper."While there is disagreement as to whether this volume is one of the Derrydale Press works Frazier states: "But the book and its design, paper, binding, and style, are so obviously Derrydale in spirit and influence, that one has only to put itside by side with Connett's American Trout Streams ... produced the same year, 1926, or Connett's own Magic Hours, produced the following year, to see how this book and the books of the Press came together. The only question would be whether Ernest Gee had more influence on Connett in 1926, or whether Connett had more influence on Gee in this important year when, together, they formed the group that formed the press." (Frazier)"Hugo Meynell was one of the greatest sportsmen of his day and this essay is considered the best ever written on Fox Hunting." - Notes accompanying the entry for the first edition in the personal library catalog of Alfred B. Maclay (in our possession) where the present book is also found. Maclay paid 20 dollars for it."Some people consider the Mark Twain to be the first Derrydale, but I consider this one to be. They were both brought out in early 1926 and this deluxe copy [as is our copy] ... is even more rare at 1 of 28, than the Mark Twain." (Note accompanying Calderwood Books catalog where a regular copy was offered at $3000.00). A consummate rarity of the highest order. Frazier M-6-D
