        Quatre histoires de blanc et noir

      Paris: G. Kadar, 1926. Edizione originale di 300 esemplari numerati. Fogli sciolti in custodia di carta pesante color crema con titolo e autore impressi in xilografia al dorso e al piatto anteriore (Loose as issued in original portfolio). Ottimo (Fine). 4to (cm 33,3 x 25,8). Il volume si compone di 1 xilografia alla prima di copertina + 2 xilografie non numerate (frontespizio e una pagina di testo) + 23 xilografie numerate + 1 colophon + 1 pagina sciolta, per un totale di 56 pagine non numerate, stampate su carta color avorio di cm 33x25,3 (dimensioni delle incisioni variano da cm 9x9 a cm 20,5x15,5). Lâ&#128;&#153;edizione comprende 300 esemplari (100 numerati 1-100 firmati dallâ&#128;&#153;Artista con una suite extra delle incisioni; 200 esemplari numerati 101-300). Si conoscono altre copie del volume differentemente assemblate: alcune con una incisione in più, ma sprovviste della pagina di testo; altre con 29 xilografie (che includono varianti del frontespizio o del fregio al colophon). Kupka infatti finanziò personalmente l&#39;edizione andando così incontro ad un tracollo finanziario: le copie dovettero quindi essere assemblate in modi differenti. Le 26 xilografie in bianco e nero create per il volume sono frutto della piena maturazione artistica di Kupka [Bibliografia: "A Century of Artists Books" di Riva Castleman, pp. 134] Quatre histoires de blanc et noir" is made up of 1 woodcut on front of wrappers + 2 unnumbered plates (title page and a page of text) + 23 numbered woodcuts + 1 colophon tailpiece + 1 loose page. A total of 56 unnumbered sheets of 33x25.3 cm, printed on cream paper. Loose as issued in cream wrappers with woodcut and lettering also on spine. The edition comprehends 300 copies (100 numbered 1-100 and signed by the Artist with extra suite of first state woodcuts; 200 numbered 101-300). The 25 woodcuts Kupka created for this volume display the full range of his mature expression, dramatically rendered in stark black and white. Other differently assembled copies are known: some with 1 more woodcut and without the text page; some with 29 woodcuts (including variant of title page on wrapper front, ornamental initial and colophon tailpiece); some with supplementary suite of 26 woodcuts. The edition of this book was really disastrous for the Artist: he personally financed the whole edition and doing so he did bankruptcy, so the copies were assembled in different ways.

        The Secret of the Ages (7 Vol. Set)

      COLLIER, NY 1926 - Published as The Book of Life in 1925 First edition thus General shelf wear, tanned spines, rubbed covers, somewhat worn extremities, previous owner's name on each front endpaper, and lightly age toned pages. Good binding, unmarked text. The World's Greatest Discovery, "You can do as much as you think you can, But you'll never accomplish more; If you're afriad of yourself, young man, There's little for you in store. For failure comes from the inside first, It's there if we only knew it, And you can win, though you face the worst, If you feel that your going to do it."-Edgar A. Guest. What, in your opinion, is the most significant discovery of this modern age? The finding of Dinosaur eggs on the plains of Mongolia, laid-so scientists assert-some 10,000,000 years ago? The unearthing of the Tomb of Tutankham-Amen, with its matchless speciments of a bygone civilization? From "A Heap of Living" The Reilly & Lee Co. The radio-active time cloth by which Professor Lane of Tufts College estimates the age of the earth at 1,250,000,000 years? Wireless? The Aeroplane? Manmade thunderbolts? No-not any of these. The really significant thing about them is that from all this vast research, from the study of all the bygopne ages, men are for the first time beginning to get an understanding of that "Life Principle" which-some how, some way-was brought to this earth thousands or millions of years ago. They are beginning to get an inkling of the infinite power it puts in their hands-to glimpse the untold possibilities it opens up. This is the greatest discovery of modern times-that every man can call upon this "Life Principle" at will, that it is as much the servant of his mind as was every Aladdin's fabled "genie-of-the-lamp" of old; that he has but to understamd it and work in harmony with it to get from it anything he may need-health or happiness, riches or success. To realize the truth of this, you have but to go back for a moment to the beginning of things. The Purpose of Existence, No one can follow it down through the ages without realizing that the whole purpose of existence is GROWTH. Life is dynamic-not static. It is ever moving forward-not standing still. The one unpardonable sin of nature is to stand still, to stagnate. The Gigantosaurus, that was over a hundred feet long and as big as a house; the Tyrannosaurus, that had the strength of a locomotive and was the last word in frightfulness; the Pterodactyl or Flying Dragon- all the giant monsters of Prehistoric Ages-are gone. They ceased to serve a useful purpose. They did not know how to meet the changing conditions. They stood still-stagnated-while the life around them passed them by.

Dans un café parisien, un réfugié Russe raconte une étrange histoire : celle du bandit Makhno, célèbre pour sa cruauté et sa soif de sang, qui fut un jour envoûté par la pureté d'une jeune fille juive et la fière résistance qu'elle lui opposait. Séduit par son passé, si proche du sien, et touché par son innocence, le cruel Makhno se laissa aller à l'amour. Dans l'univers violent et tragique de la Russie bolchevique, la plume nerveuse et incisive de Kessel fait renaître un amour aussi improbable que merveilleux.

        Anne of Greene Gables

      Boston: L.C. Page, and Company, 1926 Later printing (originally published February 1908) of the first book in the author&#39;s Avonlea series. Illustrated by Elizabeth R. Withington. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: "Second edition from / new plates, made in 1925: / the old plates of the original / edition in 1908, being worn / out. With new illustrations. / L. M. Montgomery Macdonald / April / 1926 / [cat illustration]". Bound in the publisher&#39;s ribbed light teal cloth, with gilt lettering to the front board and spine, illustration of a woman&#39;s profile to the front board, publisher&#39;s advertisements at the rear of the text. A very good copy, with wear and light rubbing to the extremities, bright spine, spine cracked between the half-title and the frontispiece, otherwise intact spine, small piece of tape to the rear pastedown. Additionally inscribed with a former owner&#39;s provenance note to the front pastedown: "This book, autographed by the / author, was presented in 1948 to / Sister Mary Kathleen, then superintendent / of nurses, St. Michael&#39;s Hospital, Toronto, / by the author&#39;s son, Dr. Stuart / Macdonald, member of the / Staff of Obstetrics and Gynaecology [sic] / St. Michael&#39;s Hospital, Toronto, Canada. / To Franie / Affectionately / Aunt Amy / Dec. 13, 1977". Overall, a clean and attractive copy with strong provenance. The only signed Anne of Green Gables we have seen. After inscribing the book, the author bequeathed this copy to her son, Dr. Stuart Macdonald, who presented this volume to the nursing superintendent at the Toronto hospital where he worked. In turn, the nurse gave this copy to "Aunt Amy," who chronicled the book&#39;s ownership history in her inscription. Aunt Amy gifted this book, and additionally inscribed it, to Franie. Franie passed the book down to the step-mother of the most recent owner. The personal nature of this volume&#39;s provenance emphasizes the rareness of a signed copy of this title. The author&#39;s inscription relates to Elizabeth Withington&#39;s eight illustrated plates, including one frontispiece. The earliest editions of Anne of Green Gables contain illustrations by W. A. J. and M. A. Claus. All three artists were painters working with a variety of mediums, meaning their works had to be copied by printers for mass reproduction. By 1925, the printer&#39;s plates of Claus&#39; work had been used to the point that they were no longer producing clear images. Rather than making new plates from the original Claus illustrations, Withington created new original illustrations for the subsequent printings. Although the choice of illustrator was likely made by the publisher, Montgomery&#39;s inscription, which is accompanied with a small cat silhouette illustration, implies she was rather fond of Withington&#39;s artwork. Anne of Green Gables is a story about a young orphan girl, Anne Shirley, who is sent to live on a farm on Prince Edward Island with a family who had intended to adopt a boy. Montgomery drew much of the novel&#39;s setting from her own childhood experiences living with her grandparents on the eastern coast of the island. Like her readers, the author was quite taken with the jovial character she had created and wrote multiple sequels to this first installment of what would become a beloved children&#39;s series.. Illus. by Withington, Elizabeth R.. Inscribed by Author. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Weberei-Entwurf.

      . Aquarell und Deckfarben, ein wenig Goldbronze, über Bleistift, mit roter Deckfarbe gerahmt, auf dünnem chamoisfarbenem Velin, unten signiert und datiert "Marianne Geyer 1926" und mit Maßangaben für das Webstück versehen. 16,1:9,4 cm. In den Rändern ungleich beschnitten, in der Ecke rechts unten kleiner Einriß, Ecke links unten Knickfalte.. Über Marianne Geyer ist kaum etwas bekannt. 1924 heiratete sie den Stuttgarter Maler, Architekten, Bildhauer, Graphiker und Designer B. Pankok (1872-1943), der seit 1913 Direktor der Kunstgewerbeschule war. Es mag sein, daß sie diese Kunstgewerbeschule besuchte und dort ihren zukünftigen Ehemann kennenlernte. Es ist auch zu vermuten, daß sie wenige Jahre nach ihrer Verheiratung ihre künstlerische Tätigkeit beendete.
