        Travel Talks on China.

      - Washington, D. C., Review and Herald Publishing Association, [1926]. 8vo. Original red cloth, lettered and decorated in black, with the rarely seen illustrated wrappers, pp. 254, many full-page illustrations after photographs; wrapper with a few tears and marginal flaws; otherwise a very good copy. Very rare first edition of a work, despite written with real Evangelist missionary zeal, gives a good account of China at the beginning of the 20th century. Lee, who lived and worked with his family in Bejing, interrupted by long travels with the Inland Mission, encounters bandits, witnesses the 1911 revolution, and generally was a keen observer. He is excusing his sense of adventure with his Christian mission, but the descriptions of China and Chinese society are vivid and fresh. The only other copy on the British Isles we were able to locate is in Oxford. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        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.

      Venedig, S. Maria Formosa, 1926. 8°. 60 S. OLwd. EA. Nicht bei WG II. Mit den beiden Tafeln. Als Manuskript gedruckt bei Paul Kaltschmid, Wien. 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

        Le Baccara. Préface par Jules Romains.

      Paris, Chez L'artiste. 1926 - S.d. (ca 1926), in-f° en ff, sous chemise cartonnage crème de l'éditeur portant le titre. ÉDITION ORIGINALE. Album présentant 10 lavis rehaussés d'aquarelle par Jean AUSCHER.Tirage limité à 422 ex. Celui-ci sur Arches (manque le feuillet de justification). Les 10 planches sont tirées à part en lithographie rehaussées en couleurs et montées sur onglet sur carton marron clair. " Jean Auscher a très véridiquement et impitoyablement fixé la silhouette et les expressions de M. le Thouhadec, ainsi que de quelques acteurs parisiens. Son recueil d'aquarelles « Le Baccara », préfacé par Jules Romains, unit le grotesque au tragique dans un mouvement endiablé", lit-on dans Le Journal des Débats, en avril 1926, sous la signature "J.F." rendant compte de quelques travaux exposés à la Galerie Georges Petit. Jean Auscher (1898-1950) trace avec un réalisme mâtiné d'expressionnisme la faune du jeu de baccara, saisissant la morgue, l'envie, le mépris ou le cynisme sur les visages de bourgeois repus ou éthérés. Innocentes novices ou rombières rompues, blafardes ou surmaquillées, les femmes n'échappent pas à ce jeu de massacre. Une certaine vision d'une décadence en marche. C'est l'un des plus fameux albums de Jean Auscher, avec La Faune des Dancings, qu'il fit paraître quelques mois avant. Cet ancien élève de l'École des Arts Décoratrifs, qui exposa au Salon d'Automne et au Salon des Tuileries entre 1923 et 1933, excella dans la peinture du Paris des Années Folles et particulièrement du monde ou du demi-monde des casinos, salles de jeu et dancings. Il exerça sa verve de caricaturiste dans Le Rire, en 1929. Il fit des portraits de diverses personnalités: du clown Grock à l'acteur Louis Jouvet. Une planche de "Baccara", "M. Le Trouhadec au baccara" est dédiée à Jules Romains et à Louis Jouvet. Il illustra des œuvres d'Irène Némirovsky et d'Alfred Machard. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

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.

        Soldiers' Pay

      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).

        Untitled Abstraction

      - Untitled abstract on Masonite (which Rexroth referred to as "Beaver Board"), 12 1/4" wide x 17 3/8" high, ca. 1926, with a double frame (inner frame is glazed and is by Rexroth, outer frame is contemporary and executed to style). Some minor surface abrasion at top-edge (perhaps from the frame), otherwise in fine condition. Some minor surface abrasion at top-edge (perhaps from the frame), otherwise in fine condition In 1944 Rexroth specified on the back of a photo of this painting what is the top and the bottom. He dated it "1926" and noted the colors: "blues, yellows on blue and blue green, white and black circles." The composition uses Mondrian's palette of primaries with black and white, and is a good example of Rexroth's use of solar and lunar polarities (the white and black circles) combined with the magnet form, which also carries the association of musical notation (as in linked eighth notes). Rexroth was particularly interested in music because (like mathematics) its complex interrelationships are recorded in a precise, universal notation. San Francisco Museum of Art label on the back, title given is "Abstraction"; date "in" is "6/29/42". There is a remnant of another label on the back, the little bit of text remaining is illegible.
