        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.

        Dialogi maritimi di M. Gioan Iacopo Bottazzo. Et alcune rime maritime di M. Nicolo Franco, et d'altri diversi spiriti, dell'Accademia de gli Argonauti

      In 8vo (cm 15,5); pergamena coeva con titolo manoscritto lungo il taglio inferiore (mancano i legacci); cc. 168. Marca tipografica al titolo. Carattere corsivo. Ottima copia.EDIZIONE ORIGINALE dedicata a Massimiano Stampa, marchese di Soncino. La prima parte dell'opera contiene i tre dialoghi del Bottazzo, che trattano rispettivamente di geografia generale, dei venti e di astronomia («sfera e cose celesti»). Essi contengono in forma concisa tutto il sapere pratico dell'epoca in materia di navigazione e furono pensati per essere letti da marinai e navigatori.La seconda parte del volume (cc. 128 - 167) contiene invece vari componimenti di Nicolò Franco, Giovan Francesco Arrivabene ed altri "argonauti" sullo stesso argomento (cfr. M. Maylender, Storia delle Accademie d'Italia, Bologna, 1926 - '30, I, p. 333).Un ulteriore dialogo su Alessandro Magno, la bussola, la calamita e gli inventori degli strumenti navali, annunciato in un secondo libro di imminente pubblicazione, non vide invece mai la luce. Il Bottazzo, letterato nato a Montecastello (AL), nel terzo dialogo narra alcune sue vicende giovanili, in particolare di un amore infelice che lo avrebbe allontanto «dal patrio nido» e portato a viaggiare a lungo in compagnia di un maestro siciliano, acquistando grande esperienza di uomini e cose. Rientrato in Piemonte, nel 1540 a Casale fu insieme a N. Franco tra i fondatori dell'Accademia degli Argonauti. Successivamente venne incaricato dell'educazione di Isabella Gonzaga, futura sposa di Francesco Ferdinando d'Avalos, marchese di Pescara. In occasione del loro matrimonio, nel 1554, egli pubblicò un Epithalamium e dedicò un altro scritto alla sua pupilla. Nominato Cavaliere dello Speron d'oro, nel 1562 entrò a far parte con il nome di "Pensoso" dell'Accademia degli Illustrati, fondata quello stesso anno a Casale da Stefano Guazzo. L'amicizia tra quest'ultimo e il Bottazzo emerge anche dal quarto libro della Civil Conversazione (1574), dove tra i convitati vi è un personaggio bonario ed ironico chiamato "Cavalier Bottazzo" (cfr. D.B.I., XIII, pp. 422 - 423).N. Franco, nato a Benevento da famiglia povera, dopo essere entrato negli ambienti letterari napoletani prima, veneziani poi, fu presentato a Pietro Aretino, di cui divenne segretario. La loro amicizia tuttavia non durò a lungo e divennero presto acerrimi nemici, tanto che il Franco decise di lasciare Venezia dopo essere stato ferito in volto da uno dell'entourage dell'Aretino. Visse a Casale Monferrato, Mantova, Cosenza e Roma, sempre dedicandosi all'attività  letteraria. Portato davanti all'inquisizione per le sue satire contro Paolo IV, fu impiccato dal ponte Sant'Angelo il 10 marzo del 1570. Edit16, CNCE7315. Index Aureliensis, 122.776. D.E. Rhodes, A Bibliography of Mantua, in: "La Bibliofilia", LVIII, 1956, pp. 173 - 174. \

        Guide-Books, Excursions, Pan-Pacific Science Congress, 1926 (24 Guide Books/Pamphlets)

      Government of Japan, Tokyo 1926 - 24 pamphlets, ca 1926, 16mo (5 3/4 x 7 3/4 in - 14.5 x 19.5 cm), illustrated paper wraps, staple bound, 92 black and white halftone plates (10 foldout), 29 maps (many in color and folding), cardboard case, total of 471 pages. This is a guide book series prepared expressly for participants in the 3rd Pan Pacific Science Congress held in Tokyo from October 30 through November 11, 1926. Each pamphlet discusses a specific topic/area and lists a tour date. The earliest date listed is October 18-25 and the latest is November 11-15, 1926. The emphasis of the guide books is on the unique geology and flora of the areas but historical and cultural aspects are also covered. There are numerous diagrams small maps and plans and charts in the text and, occasionally, halftone text illustrations. The set was issued in a cardboard case with a closing flap. The back cover of the case has a listing of 24 excursion guides. One guide is listed - "(C-4) Lake Districts around Mt. Fuji" - but is not present. However, one unlisted guide - "(D) Kyoto, Nara, Osaka, Kobe" - is present. This set is seldom offered as a complete unit. The only time I have seen it offered as a complete set, only 24 pamphlets were noted. I suspect the Kyoto guide was substituted for the Fuji guide. ~ Condition. The individual pamphlets range from Very Good to Fine condition. Two have a handwritten name on the front cover. One has ink notes on the first page. A few have cover creases and light foxing on the covers. Overall a sound and clean set. The cardboard case is in poor condition. While it is intact, it has numerous tears and creases. It still is serviceable. More information, to include digital pictures, available on request. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Torrents of Spring

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons,, 1926. A Romantic Novel in Honor of the Passing of a Great Race. Octavo. Original dark green cloth, with title printed in red to spine and front board. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Adams bookplate to front pastedown. Spine of dust wrapper sunned, some creasing and a few small tears. A fine copy in a very good dust wrapper. Hanneman records that the print-run for this edition was 1,250 copies. "The Torrents of Spring" was Hemingway's first novella, and it was first turned down by his publisher Horace Liveright, who claimed that it was unpublishable because "it is such a bitter, and I might say almost vicious caricature of Sherwood Anderson ... we are rejecting Torrents of Spring because we disagree with you and Scott Fitzgerald and Louis Bromfield and Dos Passos, that it is a fine and humorous American satire" (Gilmer 124). This rejection prompted Hemingway to break his contract with Boni and Liveright and join Scribner's, which would remained his publisher for the rest of his life.

        Charmes, 1926, livre ayant appartenu à Antoine de Saint Exupéry

      Antoine de Saint Exupery fut engagé en 1926 par la compagnie Latécoère (future Aéropostale) et transporta le courrier de Toulouse au Sénégal . A partir de septembre 1929, il rejoignit Mermoz et Guillaumet en Amérique du Sud pour contribuer au développement de l?Aéropostale jusqu?en Patagonie jusqu?au 31 mars 1931 date de sa liquidation judiciaire. Chargé tout d'abord de la création de la ligne de Patagonie, jusqu'à Punta Arenas, comme directeur de l'Aeroposta Argentina, il vola beaucoup sur les Latécoère 25, 26 ou Potez 25 et 29, pour effectuer toutes les reconnaissances nécessaires à la création de sa ligne et à l'établissement de ses escales. Tout d? abord, la page de garde de cette édition originale de Paul Valery comporte indubitablement la signature d? Antoine de Saint Exupery avec son écriture si particulière. Ensuite, la page de garde de ce livre comporte le tampon de Juan Toth gérant de l' hôtel Cosmos de Punta Arenas. Cet homme a acheté cet hôtel à la fin des années 20 période où Saint Exupery pris la direction de la l' Aeroposta Argentina et créa la ligne de Patagonie entre Commodo Rivadavia et Punta Arenas. Ce livre a été la propriété du célèbre auteur au cours d?une période d?une durée incertaine pouvant débuter en 1926 jusqu?à son transfert de possession volontaire ou involontaire à la fin des années 20 ou en 1930 ou 1931 . Il est à noter qu? en 1930, Saint Exupéry utilise la bibliothèque de son ami Paul Dony pour commettre divers sonnets inspirés d?autres poètes mais qui sont autant d?exercices de virtuosité poétique. Ensuite, Il publie Courrier Sud chez Gallimard qui est un succès commercial en France. En Décembre 1931, il publie son second roman, Vol de nuit, un immense succès, dans lequel il évoque ses années en Argentine et le développement des lignes vers la Patagonie. La reliure en très bon état est en demi chagrin avec un dos à deux nerfs orné d? une pièce de titre gravée à l?or fin . Les plats d? origine ont été conservés. L? intérieur contient l? édition originale de Charmes sur vélin publié par Gallimard en 1926 (n°5300).

        Allo! Paris! Avec vingt lithographies par Robert Delaunay.

      Paris, Editions des quatre chemins, (1926).. 110 S., 3 Bll. 20 Original-Lithographien von Robert Delaunay. Kl.-4°. OKart. mit montiertem OU (etw. gebräunt und kaum fleckg) und Tansparentpapierumschlag (mehrere kleinere Randeinrisse).. Nr. 301 von 275 (Gesamtauflage 365) Exemplaren der Normalausgabe aus "papier d'arches". - Erste Ausgabe des einzigen von Robert Delaunay illustrierten Buches, ein Meisterwerk kubistischer Buchillustration. - Monod 3581. The Artis and the book 72. - "Between 1922 and 1928, Delaunay executed five lithographs based on earlier paintings. The prints, like the paintings, exemplify Delaunay's engagement with the dynamism of Paris, as embodied primarily in its architecture. Favoring monochromatic drawings and prints over the brilliant color for which he was best known, the artist relied instead on chiaroscuro effects in concert with rhythmically placed lines and patterns. Delaunay drew throughout his career with the liquid tusche and greasy black crayon commonly used for lithography, so the process of making prints was not a great departure for him. In all, he made approximately thirty-five lithographs, most of which were book illustrations. A Parisian publisher had planned to include The Eiffel Tower in a portfolio of lithographs by Delaunay, with a text by French novelist Joris-Karl Huysmans, but the project was never completed. As the world's tallest monument at the time, the Eiffel Tower was for Delaunay a symbol of both modernity and masculinity, and he depicted it time and again. He was among the first artists to focus on this landmark as a subject, and it appears throughout his illustrated book Allo! Paris, with text by Joseph Delteil. Delaunay's more well-known, purely abstract imagery, comprising concentric, curved, and segmented bands, appears only rarely in his prints" (Jennifer Roberts. www.moma.org). - Papierbedingt leicht gebräunt, Vortitel stärker gebräunt. Teils unaufgeschnitten. Schönes kaum fleckiges Exemplar.

Among the samples of film contained in the book are ones showing the influence of under- and over-exposure; the effects of temperature on development; and films with a coloured base and/or chemically toned. The book also illustrates all four basic methods of producing coloured films in use before the introduction of technicolour. Namely, hand colouring, stencil colouring, tinting (staining the film uniformly) and toning (redeveloping in a chemical bath to tint the darker, developed portions of the film only). A very rare book, with OCLC listing only one copy worldwide, in the Bibliotheque Nationale.
