        HOW TO DISTINGUISH PRINTS

      Woodgreen Common, County of Wiltshire, England: The Print Society, 1926. De Luxe Edition (Printed at the Pelican Press, London). Binding and contents in pristine condition, box with some wear and fading. De Luxe Edition (Printed at the Pelican Press, London). Folio. 127p. + hand-printed binder's colophon. Beautifully printed on fine paper. Illustrated with 16 original tipped-in prints, all but one pencil signed by the artist (that by Alfred Palmer), and with 16 tipped-in illustrations of the various processes. Bound by Alfred de Sauty in full blue crushed morocco with patterned endpapers, t.e.g., the the spine in six panels with gilt titles and with simple panel ornaments, the covers with a geometric pattern formed by dotted rules with ornaments of leaves and stars and with double fillet borders, dentelles similarly done. Housed in a quarter morocco solander box with gilt spine titles. Print Society Publications,No. 3. The artists include John F. Greenwood, Hesketh Hubbard, Thomas Todd Blaylock, E. Marsden Wilson, Edward W. Charlton, Lelsie M. Ward, Iain MacNab, Alfred Palmer, Cecil Leslie, and Hugh Paton. The colophon states: This Book "Was sewn by E. Dvorak, forwarded by B. J. Cronk, finished by W. H. Anson, designed by A. de Sauty" and is signed "iv.iv.mcmxxx A. de Sauty". The Edition De Luxe is quite rare (limitation unknown), and certainly none on the market. (Swann Galleries stated that the copy they sold in 2012 was at that time the only recorded copy with the prints signed by the artists.) This copy is unique in this outstanding binding.

        Torres-García. 36 reproductions de pintures i dibuxos. 1926

      Barcelona, Monografies d'Art. Editions "Quatre Coses" 1926 - Primera y única edición. 21 páginas de texto y 72 páginas aproximadamente de reproducciones (sin numerar estas páginas). Buen ejemplar en comparación a los que se suelen ver. Manchas en el margen izquierdo de la cubierta y en la sobrecubierta. Desvaído el margen izquierdo de la contracubierta. Es la primera monografía publicada sobre el artista. Torres-García, quien había vivido en Cataluña entre 1891 y 1920, vuelve a finales de Julio de 1926 a Barcelona desde la Villafranche-sur-mare, donde residía en esos momentos, para ocuparse de unos asuntos familiares. Se queda poco más de una semana, a lo largo de la cual posiblemente se encontró con Ràfols, quien por entonces escribió varios artículos en la prensa denunciando la desaparición de los frescos del Palacio de la Generalitat realizados la década anterior por Torres-García. Precisamente en esta monografía aparecen reproducidos. Seguramente el viaje de Torres-García debió ser fundamental para la edición de este libro, quien debió dar a Ràfols fotografías de sus obras, no sólo de la época catalana, sino también de Nueva York y las que estaba realizando entonces en el sur de Francia. Al poco tiempo de volver de Barcelona, la familia Torres-García se trasladó a París, donde entró en contacto con la vanguardia artística internacional y desarrolló su estética constructivista.

        2 ms. Postkarten mit eigenh. U.

      [Wien], 4.X. und 4.XII.1926. - Zusammen 2 SS. An die Herstellungsleitung des S. Fischer Verlags, wegen der Drucklegung seiner Abhandlung "Der Geist im Wort und der Geist in der Tat. Vorläufige Bemerkungen zu zwei Diagrammen". ". Die Einsendung der Diagramm-Korrektur verzögert sich ein wenig. Das vorgeschlagene Format scheint mir das richtige. Die Ueberschriften auf den einzelnen Seiten (wie in der 'Pariser Rechenschaft') sind dem Charakter meiner Arbeit kaum entsprechend. Dagegen werde ich in den einzelnen Kapiteln I, II, III eine Paragrapheneinteilung mit arabischen Ziffern vornehmen. In den Diagrammen selbst wird eine Vergrösserung der Dreiecke und eine Verkleinerung der Schrift notwendig sein [4.X.] . Wie mir Dr. Bermann anlässlich seines Besuches in Wien mitteilte, hält man ein Erscheinen der Diagramme nach Weihnachten für praktischer. Immerhin werde ich Ihnen die Korrektur, wie auch die Vorkorrektur mit Einlagen zu Beginn nächster Woche zurückschicken ." [4.XII.1926]. - Die Unterschrift in Bleistift.

        The Sun Also Rises

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926 First edition, firs printing, first issue with "stoppped" for "stopped" on page 181. One of 5,090. Publisher's black cloth, with gold title labels to the front board and spine, Cleon vignette illustration to the title page. Near fine, with a hint of rubbing to the extremities, faint toning to the spine, label on the spine lightly lifting to one corner, an otherwise fresh binding, bright and clean interior. A tight copy, much nicer than usual. Hanneman A6a. The Sun Also Rises is Hemingway's second novel and is considered his most important work. The text tells the story of American and British expatriates who travel to the Festival of San Fermínin in Pamplona, Spain. The plot, which is based on Hemingway's own experience at the Festival of San Fermínin with literary expatriates then living in Paris, unites Hemingway's main interests that continue to appear in his subsequent novels. Additionally, The Sun Also Rises utilizes the Iceberg Theory so evident in much of Hemingway's writing, where the true essence of the story is not expressly said in the plot but rather is meant to be inferred. Hemingway's experiences in Pamplona inspired his interest and vast knowledge of bullfighting, which he showcased in his non-fiction work Death in the Afternoon (1932).. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Rollenportrait des Opensängers Fritz Soot. Orig.-Photo.

      Um 1926. - Vintage print. Silbergelatineabzug. 22,8 x 17 cm. Auf Karton montiert. Im Unterrand des Kartons vom Photographen signiert und mit eigenhändiger, datierter Widmung und Unterschrift des Dargestellten. Trägerkarton verso mit Spuren von alter Montage und Stempel einer Buchhandlung. Sehr guter Abzug. Perscheids Stellung innerhalb der Photographie seiner Zeit läßt sich am besten mit dem Titel einer kleinen Monographie über ihn - "In vornehmen Kreisen" (J.E. Cornwall, Hersching 1980) - beschreiben, seine Klientel war der Adel, das Militär und andere Berühmtheiten der Jahrhundertwende aus Kunst und Kultur. Er stellte seine Aufnahmen erstmals bei der berühmten Ausstellung der Hamburger Kunsthalle 1899 aus, bei der sich vor allem die Pictoralisten präsentierten. Ihm gelang es auch als Erstem einen dreifarbigen Bromöldruck herzustellen. Der dargestellte Tenor germanisch aufgerüstet und somit sicher in einer Szene aus einer Wagner-Oper zu sehen. Soot (1878 Wellersweiler bei Neunkirchen/Saar - 1965 Berlin) debütierte an der Hofoper Dresden und sang dann an der Stuttgarter und Berliner Staatsoper. Er wirkt u.a. in den Uraufführungen des "Rosenkavaliers" von Richard Strauss und Alban Bergs "Wozzeck" mit. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        BAGATELLES

      Paris: [M. Darantiere], 1926. ONE OF 100 COPIES n. Hardcover. 225 x 162 mm (8 7/8 x 6 3/8"). 58, [1] pp., [2] leaves. ONE OF 100 COPIES. Publisher's blue-green paper wrappers with color illustration on upper cover. With 11 vignette headpieces and eight tailpiece ornaments by Robert Bonfils, all colored using the pochoir technique. Spine faded, some fading to covers (with areas recolored by a previous owner), slight fraying at spine ends and edges of the fragile binding, otherwise very fine. This is a charming group of essays by the daughter of a major American collector, covering topics ranging from fathers to dog cemeteries to building private libraries. Tessie Jones (1886-1967) was the eldest child of Herschel V. Jones (1861-1928), who assembled renowned collections of art and rare books. Tessie inherited some choice items from her father, which she bequeathed to the Morgan Library in memory of him. In her essay "On Collecting," she laments the hazards of living with a fanatical collector: no sooner does one settle down to read one book, than it is whisked away to auction, and another put in its place. Painter, engraver, and binding designer Robert Bonfils (1886-1972) illustrated 30 limited editions especially intended for bibliophiles, and was noted above all for his skill as a colorist, which is clearly on display here through the skillful use of the pochoir technique.

        The British Gazette, [Issues 1-8 (complete run), chronicling the 1926 General Strike].

      London His Majesty's Stationery Office 1926 - Folio, eight double-sided broadsheets signed by Winston S. Churchill, Stanley Baldwin and J. C. C. Davidson on front free endpaper , original ms. ink notice captioned as "Original notice to the press of the General Strike May 12 1926. It was sent from 10 Downing Street to be reproduced on the Secretaries' Typewriters and was handed by Mr Churchill to the British Gazette in place of a typewritten copy", mounted on rear free endpaper, printed letter to Vice Admiral Sir William Reginald Hall, signed by the members of staff from the Morning Post and original T.L.s May 12 1926 relaying a message from Sir Andrew. Card to the Morning Post regarding the printing of an advertisement in the British Gazette announcing the new issue of the Morning Post for one penny signed by the Morning Post's editor H. A. Gwynne (both loosely inserted), original drawing by Leonard Raven-Hill ( mounted on rear free endpaper) and two contemporary prints of the same, handsome later red half-morocco, gilt, spine gilt in compartments. The 1926 General Strike lasted 9 days, from 4th May, 1926 to 13 May, 1926. It was called by the general council of the Trades Union Congress (TUC) in an unsuccessful attempt to force the British government to act to prevent wage reduction and worsening conditions for 1.2 million locked-out coal miners. Some 1.7 million workers went out, especially in transport and heavy industry. The government was prepared and enlisted middle-class volunteers to maintain essential services. There was little violence and the TUC gave up in defeat. Winston Churchill, 1867-1947, (at that time Chancellor of the Exchequer) commented as editor of the government newspaper The British Gazette : "I do not agree that the TUC have as much right as the Government to publish their side of the case and to exhort their followers to continue action. It is a very much more difficult task to feed the nation than it is to wreck it". Baldwin wrote that "The general strike is a challenge to the parliament and is the road to anarchy". Stanley Baldwin, 1867-1947, Conservative Prime Minister 1923-1924, 1924-1929 & 1925-1937. A wealthy industrialist (he personally gave one fifth of his wealth towards the national debt during World War I), who helped his father create what was, from 1902, one of the Britain's largest iron and steel firms, Baldwins Ltd.; his uncles included Sir Edward Burne-Jones and Rudyard Kipling was a cousin. Baldwin's second Conservative government was responsible for several notable achievements: the Locarno non-aggression pact, expansion of pensions and house building, local government reform and extending the right to vote to women aged over 21. Baldwin's particular concern was to reduce social tensions and secure industrial peace. Although faced by the General Strike in May 1926, his combination of firmness and conciliation guaranteed its defeat. John Colin Campbell Davidson, 1889-1970, 1st Viscount Davidson GCVO CH CB PC, known before his elevation to the peerage as J. C. C. Davidson, was a British civil servant and Conservative Party politician, best known for his close alliance with Stanley Baldwin. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Sun Also Rises

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926. First edition, first issue of the first printing, with the misprint ("stoppped") on page 181 line 26. Octavo, original black cloth. In very good condition with some wear to the spine label. Housed in a custom clamshell box. The Sun Also Rises was published by Scribner's in 1926, and a year later in the United Kingdom by Jonathan Cape under the title Fiesta. Though it initially received mixed reviews, it is now "recognized as Hemingway's greatest work" (Meyers, 1985). The fictional plot depicts a love story between war-wounded and impotent Jake Barnes and the promiscuous divorcée Lady Brett Ashley, but the novel is a roman à clef; the characters are based on real people and the action is based on real events. Hemingway proposes that the "Lost Generation," considered to have been decadent, dissolute and irretrievably damaged by World War I, was resilient and strong. Naturally, themes of love, death, renewal in nature, and the nature of masculinity are heavily investigated. For example, the characters engage in bull-fighting, which is presented as an idealized drama: The matador faces death and, in so doing, creates a moment of existential nothingness, broken when he vanquishes the possibility of death by killing the bull (Stoltzfus, 2005). The Sun Also Rises is seen as an iconic modernist novel for future generations (Mellow, 1992), although it has been emphasized that Hemingway was not philosophically a modernist (Reynolds, 1990). "The Sun Also Rises is Hemingway's masterpiece--one of them, anyway--and no matter how many times you've read it or how you feel about the manners and morals of the characters, you won't be able to resist its spell. This is a classic that really does live up to its reputation" (David Laskin).
