        Woman washing her hair.]

      New York - Woodcut. Signed in pen. Image measures 7 1/4 x 5 3/4". Sheet measures 10 1/2 x 8 1/2". Matted with archival corners. This print by Rockwell Kent depicts a young woman washing her hair at the shore of a lake. Part of the woman's reflection appears in the lake at the bottom, and the background is lush with stylized foliage. The print, created circa 1926, appeared in Kent's 1933 "Rockwellkentiana" (p. 37). It is in excellent condition with a French matting and wide margins. It has been professionally matted with archival corners. Rockwell Kent (1882-1971) was an American realist painter from Tarrytown, New York. Kent spent his life in a variety of places, including Maine, Newfoundland, Alaska, Greenland, and South America. His paintings, lithographs, and woodcuts often portray aspects of a life lived in nature and are collected today by major museums throughout the country. Kent was also a prolific writer and illustrator who produced several books. This print is a lovely example of his work.

        Sonnets For Caresse.

      Paris: Albert Messein, Editeur, 7 October 1926 - Octavo (164 × 111 mm). Original presentation vellum, hand-painted titles to spine and border to sides, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. With the original wrappers bound in. Fine. Presentation copy, inscribed by Caresse Crosby, of the third and most complete edition of Harry's first book, this copy 36 of 100 numbered copies on Arches paper (there were also 7 on japon and one on vellum). This copy, which is in beautiful condition with the original wrappers bound into the hand-painted vellum binding as issued, is inscribed on the first blank, "For the Elins, Happy New Year, from Caresse, à Paris ce 3 Janvier 1927". Harry Crosby (1898–1929) was born the heir to one of Boston's wealthiest banking families (he was the nephew of J. P. Morgan), but after serving as an ambulance driver during the First World War he met and fell in love with a married lady, Mary Peabody (née Jacob), another Bostonian heiress with a passionate and unruly disposition. (She was also, incidentally, the inventor of the backless bra.) They soon eloped to Paris and she changed her name to Caresse (though she briefly entertained "Clytoris", before bestowing that name on her pet whippet). Harry and Caresse embedded themselves in the avant-garde cultural scene, holding wild parties in their palace on the île Saint-Louis, and founding the Black Sun Press, which published (in small, exquisite editions and with no expense spared) the work of English and American expatriate modernists such as Crane, Eliot, Jolas, Joyce, Lawrence, MacLeish, and Pound. The couple lived a life of utter dissolution off Harry's inheritance which, when it ran out, had to be supplemented by telegrams to his banker father such as the infamous, "PLEASE SELL $10,000 WORTH OF STOCK. WE HAVE DECIDED TO LIVE A MAD AND EXTRAVAGANT LIFE", (to which the father, reluctantly but nonetheless amazingly, assented). Following Crosby's tragic death in 1929 (he was found shot dead in the same bed as Josephine, "The Fire Princess", one of his many lovers), the Black Sun Press continued issuing books in Paris and New York under the directorship of Caresse, who survived until 1970. Sonnets for Caresse, which was Harry Crosby's first book, was first printed in October 1925. The first and second edition contained 30 and 37 poems respectively, whereas this third was expanded to 48. The fourth edition of the following year was halved in size with only 24, making this third the most complete edition of Crosby's first book of poems, marking the beginning of an extraordinary love affair. The recipients of this presentation copy from Caresse were her aunt and uncle Emma (née Jacobs) and George Elin, who lived on their Ardleigh Park estate near London. It was to Ardleigh that Caresse had occasionally fled earlier in the 20s when upset by Harry's liberal flirting - this presentation from Caresse to her cousins of these love poems, penned by the man against whom they had learned to take sides, is characteristically capricious.

        North American Indians.

      Edinburgh: John Grant,, 1926. Being Letters and Notes on Their Manners, Customs, and Conditions, Written During Their Eight Years' Travel Amongst the Wildest Tribes of Indians in North America. 1832-1839. 2 volumes, large octavo, original pictorial red cloth, with titles gilt to spine and upper cover, with pictorial decoration in gilt and black, top edge gilt, others uncut. Over 300 colour illustrations on 180 plates, including 3 maps, one coloured and folding. Near-contemporary ink inscription to front of volume one. Light rubbing to extremities and a few very small closed tears to cloth at spine ends, otherwise a smart copy, clean, fresh, attractive and in excellent condition. A young lawyer turned portraitist, Catlin set out in 1830 from his home in Pennsylvania to record on canvas the indigenous tribes of North America and their way of life. His eight years among the major tribes of the Great Plains and the Rocky Mountains resulted in his "Indian Gallery," an enormous collection of artefacts as well as more than four hundred paintings, including portraits and scenes of tribal life. The resultant book, first published with uncoloured plates in 1841, is "one of the most original, authentic and popular works on the subject" (Sabin). "The history and the customs of such a people," Catlin wrote, "preserved by pictorial illustrations, are themes worthy of the lifetime of one man, and nothing short of the loss of my life, shall prevent me from becoming their historian" (Hassrick).

        Annales du Siam I, Chroniques de Suvanna Khamdëng, Suvanna k'ôm kham, Sinhanavati

      Paris, Limoges, Nancy, Imprimeries CHARLES-LAVAUZELLE and Cie, 1926, in-8, XXVpp, (6), 216pp, (6), exemplaire broché, couverture imprimée, orné de 8 planches hors texte (couverture décollée, page de faux titre manquante), Premier volume d'un ensemble de trois comprenant la traduction par Camille Notton des chroniques de Suvanna Khamdeng, Suvanna K'ôm Kham et de Sinhanavati. Le deuxième volume contient la chronique de Lap'un, et l'histoire de la dynastie Chamt'evi, tandis que le troisième comporte la chronique de Xieng Mai. Camille Notton, consul de France à Chiang-mai, se fait le défenseur, dans son travail de traduction de la langue et de la civilisation du nord de la Thaïlande. Notton demeure le pionnier incontournable des études sur le Lanna et ses travaux de traduction continue à faire référence. Dans sa préface, Notton signale qu'il est le premier à traduire ces chroniques dans leur intégralité car les éditions en siamois établies au début du XXème siècle n'offrent que des traductions abrégées, sélectives. Suvanna Khamdaeng est un héros de légende qui n'est connu que par cette chronique, plus religieuse qu'historique, mélangeant allégrement le merveilleux et le réel. Elle conte l'installation de ces chasseurs « venus du nord » dans la région de Chiang maï jusqu'à la formation du muang Lanna après de multiples vicissitudes. Elle évoque de nombreux souverains dans une chronologie qui permet de la situer à partir du 8ème siècle de notre ère. Ce texte tente de démontrer que Suvanna Khamdaeng est le fondateur du royaume de Lanna « dont la prospérité fut le fruit de sa grande sagesse ». La Chronique de Souvanna K'ôm Kham fait partie d'un ensemble de textes originaires du Lan Nâ, généralement distingués de ceux que l'on considère comme historiques (la Chronique de Chiang Mai, par exemple), mais dont on suppose pourtant qu'ils pourraient conserver la mémoire de faits très anciens, voire antérieurs à la période taï. Si ces chroniques ont sans doute peu à nous apprendre d'un point de vue historique, ils recèlent cependant des informations précieuses pour une meilleure compréhension des traditions historiographiques et hagiographiques du domaine taï. Toute l'importance du texte réside en fait dans sa conclusion. Celle-ci se focalise sur la destruction de Souvanna Khom Kham et sur son abandon par ses habitants. La chronique de Sinhanavati est consacrée à la fondation de buddha au pays Yônaka, à la révisions des Écritures de l'histoire de ce pays et par la suite, aux peuples khmer et T'ai. C'est notamment dans ce chapitre sur la fondation du buddha, qu'il est écrit que buddha se serait transporté par la voie des airs dans les différents monts du Yonok, et après s'être assis sur chaque rocher qui s'y trouvait et y aurait prédit l'édification d'un sanctuaire bouddhique. Ce sanctuaire (le Wat Phra That Doi Tung) fût en effet construit par le roi Praya Ajjuttaraja Et Maha Kassapa sur ces rochers, considérés comme des reliques ; le sanctuaire est toujours visitable aujourd'hui. Intérieur propre.

        [NEW TYPE OF THEATRE FOR A NEW SOVIET MAN] Moskovsky dramatichesky teatr imeni MGSPS: Gastrol'naia poezdka 1926 [i.e. Theatre of Moscow Provincial Council of Trade Unions: Tour of 1926]

      Moscow: MGSPS, [1926]. [32] pp.: ill., port. 17x12,5 cm. In original illustrated constructivist wrappers. Tear of the spine, wrappers are slightly detached from the text block, loss of the small fragment of the front wrapper (restored with paper) and of the back wrapper, Soviet bookshop's stamp and price written in pen on the back wrapper. First and only edition. One of 10000 copies. This publication was made during the most experimental, bold and innovative period of the Theatre of Moscow Provincial Council of Trade Unions. With 16 portraits of the theatre company (Liubimov-Lanskoi, Doroshevich, Vanin, Rozen-Sanin and others) and 6 scenes from productions. This edition covers the tour of the theater that took place in 1926 in Leningrad, Gomel, Kiev, Kharkov, Zaporozhye and Odessa. The edition includes lists of the company, staff, route, repertoire ('Storm', 'Georgy Gapon', 'Locust', 'The Year of 1881'), short biography and programs for an each production. The Theatre was born in 1922 on the initiative of trade unionists for working audience. The first performance, composed of fragments of Leonid Andreev's play «Savva», was shown in the Hall of Columns of the House of Unions. It aroused great interest among spectators and the press. In connection with the fact that the young collective enjoyed the support of the cultural department of the Moscow trade unions, on March 3, 1923, it was given an official status. In 1924, the theater acquired the theater building in the Hermitage Garden at its complete disposal. In 1925 the theater was headed by an energetic, experienced theatrical figure, actor and director Evsei Osipovich Lyubimov-Lanskoy. Liubimov-Lanskoi was one of the most active theatre activists of 1920s, creator of the first realistic productions about the Revolution. The distinguishing features of the Lyubimov-Lansky productions are strict, precise fixation of life and documentary, and at the same time revolutionary pathos, agitation. He called his theater «theatre of social truth», and his realism - «realism biased, sarcastic, sharp, class-sober". With him, the glory of the experimental stage of modern Soviet drama became established behind the theater. The theater enters into creative cooperation with V. Bill-Belotserkovsky, F. Gladkov, V. Kirshon, A. Afinogenov, N. Pogodin and other young playwrights, trying to find contact and mutual understanding with the young audience of the new spectator. The main artist of the theater at that time was B. Volkov, who worked in the style of constructivism. In the 1920s the theater was in the forefront of the Soviet drama, but in the 1930s this type of theater and actor was already unclaimed.

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) Versand D: 7,00 EUR

        First Steps to Rackets

      Mills & Boon, London 1926 - 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.

        Haldensleben wie es früher war

      Neuhaldensleben Am Ufer der Ohre, da liegt eine Stadt, die im Umkreis nicht ihresgleichen hat ward früher Haldensleben genannt, aus dem Sumpfe erbaut, wie euch allen bekannt. Manch Schicksal mußte das Städtchen erfahren, denn einst vor vielen hundert Jahren, als Erzbischof Wichmann sie heimgesucht, ergriffen alle nach Niendorf die Flucht. Auf dem Marktplatz steht der Roland von Stein, er hat schon eingebüßt Arm und Bein, doch hat er beides jetzt wieder schon -aus Zement, ohne schmerzhafte Operation. Der Kirchturm ragt weit übers Stadtbild hinaus und sieht genau wie ne Sektflasche aus. In der Stadt herrscht ein großer Wagenverkehr, Motorräder, Autos fahren schnell hin und her. Auch gibts ein Gefängnis am Stendaler Tor, eine Wassermühle ist gerade davor. Gegenüber steht das Spritzenhaus, denn manchmal bricht auch Feuer aus. Von 6 bis 7 auf der Hagenstraße sind Menschen da aus jeder Gasse, zumal der Bummel - wie früher auch heute -bringt auf die Beine viel junge Leute. Der Stadtpark, geeignet zum Rodeln gar sehr, doch wenn Oppermann (Gendarm) kommt, ist er ganz bestimmt leer. Neuhaldensleben bist du auch klein, wir können zufrieden mit dir sein. Waltraud Wilchens, Maschenpromenade 25 (eingesandt zum Preisausschreiben in der Beilage zum Stadt- und Landboten Nr. 7, 1926) Vorwort Ich habe mich bemüht, in Wort und Bild etwas einzufangen von dem Leben in der Ohrestadt im ersten Drittel des 20. Jahrhunderts und von ihrer Entwicklung. Ich wollte Erinnerungen wachrufen an Kindheit, Jugend, liebenswerte Menschen, Erinnerungen an vergangene Zeiten. Bei denen, die Haldensleben nicht kennen, wollte ich Interesse wecken für diese Stadt und zeigen, daß auch sie Sehenswertes aufzuweisen hat. Allerdings bietet es sich dem Besucher nicht an, er muß schon mit offenen Augen durch die Straßen gehen und ein Gespür für Besonderheiten entwickeln. Dabei soll das Buch helfen. Ich selbst bin kein Haidensleber Kind, sondern erst 1945 zugezogen. Es fiel mir anfangs nicht leicht, Zugang zur Ohrestadt und ihrer Geschichte zu finden, sie kennen und lieben zu lernen. Heute bin ich die Turmfrau vom Bülstringer Torturm und freue mich über jeden, den ich mit Haldensleben bekanntmachen darf. Mit Widmung auf der Titelseite.

Dreiser sells the film rights to his classic novel for $80,000. Interestingly, Horace Liveright - Dreiser's publisher - was to receive the sum of $10,000, which, In the initial version of this contract, was to be paid by "The Seller" (i.e., Dreiser); that small detail was corrected by hand in this copy to "The Purchaser" (i.e., Lasky) -- and the correction duly signed and approved "OK Theodore Dreiser" in the margin!The first treatment of Dreiser's classic was written in the late 20s by the Russian master, Sergei Eisenstein, who was actually hired by Lasky to come to Hollywood in 1930 to direct a film. Untimately, however, Eisenstein proved incompatible with the more commericial orientation of Hollywood, and the first film version appeared in 1931, directed by Josef Von Sternberg - a film version which Dreiser strongly disapproved of. A second version was film in 1951 starring Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor, entitled "A Place in the Sun".

      New York: Boni & Liveright, 1926. First Edition. Hardcover. Fine-. First Printing, one of only 2500 copies, of the author's first novel. 8vo: 319,[1]pp. Publisher's navy blue cloth, spine and upper cover stamped in yellow, fore-edge untrimmed, stylized blue and white vine-patterned end papers, title page in red and black. A beautiful, crisp, fresh copy, hinges sound and uncracked, pages clean, bright and unmarked, excepting manuscript ex-libris to half-title and verso of front fly leaf, and these trivial faults: one dog-ear, one leaf edge vertically creased, thin one-inch streak to upper cover, otherwise spotless. Without the scarce dust jacket. Petersen A2.1. In 1925, Faulkner moved to New Orleans where he joined a literary circle centered on Sherwood Anderson and was introduced to the modernist innovations of T. S. Eliot and James Joyce. His interest in experimental writing was piqued, and he began a novel, his first, Soldiers' Pay, portraying the tragic homecoming of a wounded war hero. Though set in Georgia, it was, nonetheless, a kind of rehearsal for the later Mississippi novels, full of despair and "mythic motifs of impotence and futile love." (Literary Encyclopedia) Andersen recommended the book for publication, without having ever read it. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. In 1921, Faulkner worked briefly in a New York bookstore, where he met Elizabeth Prall, who later married Sherwood Anderson. That led to an apprenticeship with Anderson when Faulkner moved to New Orleans in 1925. "In a starry literary circle [Faulkner] was inspired to experiment with prose pieces, many of which he published in the New Orleans Picayune and the fledgling literary journal, The Double Dealer. Friends acquainted him with Freud, the mythic world of the anthropologist Sir James Frazer's Golden Bough, and most importantly, the modernist innovations of T. S. Eliot and James Joyce. Faulkner's absorbed interest in experimental writing proceeded apace; building on his brief published pieces in local venues, he began a novel, Soldiers' Pay, which portrayed the tragic homecoming of a fatally wounded war hero. Set in Georgia, it was, nonetheless a kind of rehearsal for the later Mississippi novels. Full of despair and "fisher-king" mythic motifs of impotence and futile love, the novel focussed on the returning veteran, Mahon, who is accompanied by a fellow soldier and a young widow, both met on the homeward bound train. Mahon's heartless flapper fiancé, another woman he has deserted, a jaded, randy intellectual and Mahon's minister father complete a cast that plays out a tragic story of a sterile postwar world in which old loyalties and values seem to mean little. Anderson, who had promised Faulkner he would get the book in print if he didn't have to read it, came through, and the novel was published in 1926." (Literary Encyclopedia).
