        The British Gazette, full set of 8 issues

      London: His Majesty's Stationary Office (from The Daily Telegraph building), 1926. 1st Edition. Paperback. Very good. The British Gazette ran for eight issues between 5 May and 13 May 1926 (excluding Sunday 9 May). It was championed and edited by Churchill during the General Strike of 1926. The British General Strike of 1926 began on May 4 of that year and presented a major national crisis. By some estimates, 1.5 to 1.75 million workers were involved. On May 5, the British government struck back using its resident master wordsmith and orator, Winston Churchill, who was then serving in the cabinet as Chancellor of the Exchequer. Churchill was put in charge of a major propaganda effort. Under his editorship, the government made its case through a short-lived but highly effective newspaper series called The British Gazette. According to Churchill Bibliographer Ronald Cohen, "Although Churchill did not actually write an article in every one of the eight issues, he played a major role in the mounting of the enterprise, the solicitation of personnel to publish the newspaper and paper on which to print it, as well as the editorial guidance of its content. The articles he wrote are all unsigned." The influence of the publication was clearly significant, circulation well exceeding 2 million by the final issue. The short publication run ended when the strike was abandoned. Offered here is a complete set of the original eight issues. Each issue was a broadsheet newspaper, each of 4 pages, the first two issues printed on one side of the sheet only. Each issue measures 23.25 inches x 17.75 inches. All eight issues show the usual creases from being previously folded in four, as well as some age toning and trivial marginal tears. However, condition is better than we usually see and very good overall given the age and fragility of the issues. All issues are well protected and stored flat within a purpose-made, oversized cloth portfolio with ribbon ties, tri-fold flaps to protect the issues within, and a gilt stamped morocco leather label on the front cover. The portfolio measures 24.5 inches by 19.25 inches. Given the large portfolio dimensions, additional shipping charges will likely be required. Bibliographic reference: Cohen C307, Woods Appendix III.

        LETTER (TLS, signed) with COLOR (signed)

      New York: October 30, 1926. original typed letter, signed, on OPPORTUNITY: JOURNAL OF NEGRO LIFE letterhead. The 100+ word letter is addressed to "My dear Miss Deane" and addresses her troubles with living in the south, and Cullen expresses his feelings toward his poetry contained in the volume COLOR (Harper & Brothers, 1925). The letter reads, in part: "I am sorry that you are beginning to feel the oppressive influence of the south already. Although I have never been there any length of time, I have gathered innumerable evidences of its devestating spirit. I hope you will not be caught in its coils . . ." Cullen goes on, in part: "Thank you for your kind comment on COLOR; I wish I could get the whole south to read it. I never write my poems for the express purpose of pointing a moral, but I believe . . . biased southerners would profit by reading them . . ." A wonderful and expressive, heartfelt letter that provides a vision of the black struggles in the south, and the spirit of Cullen's poetry to express it. Along with the letter is a signed copy of Cullen's book, COLOR. The letter has one correction in Cullen's hand, shows original fold creases for mailing, and minor edge wear, else fine. The book also shows minor edge wear, else fine. A remarkable and unique offering.

        2 typed letters signed ("Kandinsky").

      Dessau, 15. V. and 13. X. 1926. - 4to and 8vo. Altogether 4 pp. on 2 ff. To John Schikowski (1867-1934), editor of the magazine "Vorwärts" in Berlin, about hostility against 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 write again about the arts in their ancient, superficial tone [.] The attitude that the abstract art has only an artistic and commercial value and can only produce pure ornamentation has become the usual point of view. The latter, for example, was claimed by Carl Einstein in the 'Propylaea Art History' where he discussed my work [.]" (15. V. 1926; transl. from the German original). - In his letter from October 10, 1926, Kandinsky discusses Schikowski's book on modern dance in detail. - John Schikowski was considered one of the best critics of modern art and modern dance at that time.

An den Schriftsteller und Lyriker Erich Sieburg (1878-1947), der ihm ein Werk - wohl die bei Baedeker im Vorjahr erschienenen Novellen "Das fremde Gesicht" - zugesandt hatte: "[.] Dieses Buch hat einen ganz starken Eindruck auf mich gemacht, in Gegenstand, in Sprache und Gestaltung.

Beweis: Seit Monaten hat mich die Unruhe nicht verlassen, daß ich Ihnen nicht schreiben konnte. - Heute will und kann ich nicht auf Details Ihres Werkes eingehen, denn es liegt schon ziemlich weit zurück, daß ich es gelesen habe [.] und ich möchte nicht ungenau und beiläufig werden [.] Die kurze Begegnung mit Ihnen ist mir ebenso wie die mit Ihrem Buch Realität geblieben; es war nur ein Augenblick, aber wieviele Menschen, mit denen ich auf dieser Vortragsreise tagelang zusammen war, sind ganz und gar vergessen! Ihren Kopf sehe ich ganz deutlich vor mir. Nehmen Sie bitte diese scharfe Erinnerung als ein Geständnis meiner Sympathie freundlich an! - Ihre Absicht, Gedichte von mir in Anthologie der 'Schulausgabe' aufzunehmen, erfüllt mich mit Freude und ich erteile Ihnen hiemit umgehend das Publikationsrecht. Darf ich Sie bitten, mir Ihre Wahl mitzuteilen!? [.] 'Paulus unter den Juden' ist nach vieler Arbeit und Umarbeit jetzt fertig. Ich korrigiere eben die Fahnen [.]".

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

      S. l. n. d. - 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). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Insectes. Vingt planches en phototypie coloriées au patron donnant quatre-vingts insectes et seizes compositions decoratives

      Paris, Du Chartre et van Buggenhoudt, (1926).. Folio (45,5 x 32,5 cm). 2 typographische Bll. (Titel & Tafelverzeichnis) and 20 photolithographische Tafeln mit hervorragendem Pochoirkolorit. Lose Blatt (wie erschienen) in mit Bindebändern verschließbarer Mappe, diese auf dem Vorderdeckel mit einer montierten lithographischen Titelillustration. Titelblatt mit winzigen Läsuren im äußersten unteren Blattrand (formatbedingt, das Titelblatt ist geringfügig größer als die Mappe und stand daher über). Ansonsten in hervorragendem Zustand. Erste Ausgabe. Sehr selten. - Nissen, ZBI 3796. - Vollständiges Exemplar mit allen 20 Tafeln (obwohl das Tafelverzeichnis nur 16 aufführt und die letzten vier Tafeln mit der stilisierten Anwendung der zuvor abgebildeten Insekten im Ornament unterschlägt). In absolut ungewöhnlichem Großformat gehaltene Abbildungen von Insekten in exzellentem und vor allem auch zoologisch exaktem Kolorit. Widmet sich sämtlichen Genera der Insekten bis auf Schmetterlinge und Falter, zu denen der Verfasser ein eigenes Werk publiziert hatte. Die Tafeln zeigen Zikaden (1-2), Hornkäfer (3-4), Wespen und Bienen (5-6), Orthoptera, d.s. Heuschrecken, Grashüpfer etc. (7-8), Libellen und Schwebfliegen (9-10), Käfer (11-15), Spitzkopfzikaden (16) sowie ihrer Anwendung im dekorativen Ornament (16-20). - Über den Verfasser und Künstler Séguy ist bis heute wenig bekannt, obgleich er mehrere ähnliche, allesamt seltene Werke zur Dekorativen Kunst im Stil des Art Deco veröffentlichte. Vermutlich aufgrund seiner Werke zu Insekten (dem hier vorliegenden und jenem zu den Lepidopteren) wird er oft mit dem Entomologen Eugène Séguy (1890-1985) verwechselt, der jedoch in keiner Weise als Künstler in Erscheinung getreten ist. Ungeachtet fehlender Informationen zur Biographie Séguys erlangten jedoch alle seine Arbeiten eine enorme Bedeutung für die Ausbildung des Art Deco und werden heute zu dessen Meisterleistungen gezählt. In Rays Monographie zum Art Deco in Frankreich heißt es denn auch: “In comparison with their (i.e. Séguy’s works) variety and brilliance, much Art Deco illustration seems pallid and constrained.” (Ray, The Art Deco Book in France). - ENGLISH: Large-folio (45,5 x 32,5 cm). 2 typographic leaves (title & plate index) and 20 photolithographic plates with pochoir-colouring. Loose sheets as issued in original portfolio with ties, and with illustrated title lable mounted on front board. Titlepage shows even browning and minor fraying to outermost right margin. Else in fine to mint condition. First edition. Very rare. – Nissen: Die Zoologische Buchillustration. No. 3796. – A fine complete copy with all 20 plates – the index calling only for 16 plates, not stating the ornamental designs on the last four plates. Amazing large scale compositions of insects in bright colours, devoted to all generas of insects except for butterflies, on which Séguy had published a separate work. The plates are as decorative as scientifically exact, and display cicadas (pl. 1-2), longhorn beetles (3-4), wasps & bees (5-6), locusts, grasshoppers, orthoptera (7-8), dragonflies & damselflies (9-10), beetles (11-15), plant-hoppers (16) and their application to ornamental patterns (17-20). Until today very little is known about the artist, although he had published a few more works on decorative arts. Probably for the wide appreciation of this work on insects he is very often mixed up with the entomologist Eugène Séguy (1890-1985), who never published on arts at all. Nevertheless, all of Séguy’s works gained an enormous influence on the transition of the Art Nouveau to Art Deco and are today considered masterpieces of decorative arts: “In comparison with their (i.e. Séguy’s works) variety and brilliance, much Art Deco illustration seems pallid and constrained.” (Ray, The Art Deco Book in France).

        First Steps to Rackets

      London: Mills & Boon. (1926). First. First edition. Octavo. 136, 16 ads pp., plates. Green cloth. A slight bump on the front board, very good or better without dustwrapper. Inscribed by one of the co-authors: "To George Standing in grateful remembrance of the pleasure of meeting. Clarence N. Bruce. Jan. 1928." Not to be confused with either tennis or squash, rackets or racquets is an indoor racquet sport played in the United Kingdom, United States, and Canada. The sport is infrequently called "hard rackets," possibly to distinguish it from the related sport of squash (formerly called "squash rackets"). Both authors were rackets champions and the recipient, George Standing, was the head professional at the New York Racket and Tennis Club, and was runner-up for the World Championship in 1897. .
