        Animalia or Fibs about Beasts. Engraved on Wood and Ensnared in Verse

      New York: Payson & Clarke, 1926. First trade edition of this modern verse bestiary, illustrated with wood engravings by Leon Underwood, "one of the founding fathers of British Modernism" (Telegraph). Best remembered for his African-inspired sculpture, Underwood mastered a wide range of media, and was one of the founders of the English Wood Engraving Society in 1925. The rich black images here are accompanied by nonsense verse in the tradition of Edward Lear and Hilaire Belloc: "The wily serpent never spoils / The appearance of his motive coils / By using lubricating oils." Issued simultaneously with a signed limited edition of twenty-eight copies. A fine copy of a striking book, reflecting the artistic revival of English wood engraving between the wars. Quarto, original full black cloth lettered in green, pastedown wood engraving of a circus ring on upper board, yellow pictorial endpapers. Wood-engraved vignettes on half title, frontispiece, and title page; twenty full-page wood engravings of animals throughout text. Very light wear to cloth.

Solo alcune bross. del 1927 e 1928 hanno aloni, tracce d'uso o mancanze al dorso, altrimenti tutta la raccolta, contenuta in due cofanetti, è ben conservata. Uniamo: l'"Antologia di Solaria", in-8 p., brossura orig. (dorso restaur.), pp. (6),509,(3). E' un volume antologico, pubblicato dopo la chiusura della rivista, con scritti di Gadda, Montale, Pavese, Saba, Quasimodo, Ungaretti, Vittorini, Zavattini e altri. "Prima edizione" stampata in 560 copie numerate. La ns., 97, appartiene alla tiratura di 500 in cifre arabe. Ben conservato. "Solaria", considerata la più importante rivista letteraria del Novecento, fu fondata da Alberto Carocci nel 1926, edita a Firenze dall'editore Parenti. La sua voce, pur non essendo di aperta opposizione al fascismo, era una chiara smentita alla retorica della letteratura ufficiale, e alle pretese d'autarchia culturale del regime opponeva le indicazioni di un Joyce, un Proust, un Kafka. Sarebbe errato voler vedere nella rivista diretta da Alberto Carocci, una organicità che non aveva. Bonsanti, Chiaromonte, Comisso, Gianfranco Contini, Giacomo Debenedetti, Ferrata, Leo Ferrero, C.E. Gadda, Montale, Noventa, Solmi, Stuparich, Ungaretti, Vittorini, sono soltanto alcuni dei nomi che si trovano scorrendo gli indici di Solaria. Al “proustismo” di Bonsanti ed altri si contrappone la nascente vocazione narrativa di un Vittorini; a Montale e Ungaretti - interpreti dell'uomo in crisi - Giacomo Noventa, poeta dei grandi motivi della tradizione classica, e così si potrebbe continuare per molto. Ma al di là di questi nomi e di queste indicazioni c'è qualcosa che si possa definire lo “spirito” di Solaria? Forse l'esigenza, comune a tutti, di una letteratura europea, la nostalgia dell'Europa, che proprio allora stava precipitando irrimediabilmente verso il disastro. Così “Antologia critica di Solaria” (Lerici Edit., 1958).

Black-cloth backed decorative paper boards with titling gilt to spine, original publisher's light green upper wrapper printed in dark green bound in. 1f. (title), 1f. (dedication in facsimile of Berg's handwriting: "Alma Maria Mahler zugeeignet"), [i] ("Szenarium" [table of contents]), [i] (list of orchestral instruments), [i] (cast list), [i] (instructions for performing the Sprechstimme), 5-405 (music), [i] (blank) pp. Printer's note to lower right corner of last page of music: "Waldheim-Eberle A.G., Wien, VII."A facsimile of the copyist's manuscript. Extensive markings in pencil and red crayon by an unknown conductor to pp. 55-89, 123-171, 215-237, 246-256, 275-348, and 364-405. Handstamp "00006" to upper left corner of upper wrapper.Binding slightly worn and rubbed; upper wrapper slightly worn and soiled; lower wrapper lacking. Slightly worn; tear to verso of blank outer edge of title repaired; corners of some leaves slightly creased; minor repair to blank outer edge of final leaf. First Edition.The spellings "orkester" (passim) and "kor" (p. 291) suggest that the performance for which this copy was used either took place in Scandinavia or was led by a Scandinavian conductor.Georg Büchner's (1813-1837) fragmentary drama Woyzeck [not "Wozzeck"] was written in 1836, but it remained unpublished until 1879 and did not see the stage before Max Reinhardt produced it in Munich in 1913. Its Viennese premiere, in 1914, prompted Berg to compose his opera?the first atonal opera in history and arguably the most successful one to this day."Wozzeck was an epoch-making work that broke new ground musically, emotionally and dramatically. If Büchner's play was discovered and first performed at a time when its techniques and concerns seemed strikingly contemporary, it also appeared at a moment when its extreme states were peculiarly suited to Berg's musical language - an atonal language that, constantly hovering on the edge of tonal confirmation, becomes a perfect musical metaphor for the emotional and mental state of the opera's chief protagonist. The world that the opera presents is a projection of the tortured mind of Wozzeck himself: a world without normality or humanity and peopled by grotesques, a haunted world of strange, hallucinatory voices and visions and of natural phenomena indifferent to the human tragedy being played out."

        Autograph letter signed "Lehár Fr" to the celebrated soprano Maria Jeritza

      1926. "Liebe, du Himmel auf Erden" is an aria from Lehár's operetta Paganini (1926), made into a film in 1934. Maria Jeritza performed the song as part of a shortwave broadcast for an American audience in 1935. Lehár's operetta Schön ist die Welt was first performed in 1930 (a revision of his earlier work Endlich allein, 1914). Like other successful composers of the era, Léhar was close to Maria Jeritza (1887-1982), the most celebrated soprano from the final years of the Habsburg empire. She appeared regularly at the Metropolitan Opera in New York from 1921 on.. In blue ink on the verso of a postal card with unidentified motif; printed credits to "Phot. Ing. F Mayer." Dated September 29, 1935. In German (with translation).Lehár thanks his correspondent (who is not named but may be identified by circumstantial evidence as the soprano Maria Jeritza) for her interpretation of the song "Liebe du Himmel auf Erden" (Love, you heaven on earth) from his operetta Paganini. He is looking forward to seeing her as Tosca soon. He announces that he will travel to Paris imminently to attend a performance of his operetta Schön ist die Welt:"Still under the spell of the song 'Liebe du Himmel auf Erden' so wonderfully rendered by you I am writing you this letter, and I thank you cordially for the artistic enjoyment... Early next week I will travel to Paris. Schön ist die Welt is going to be performed at the Theâtre Paisé Lyrique."From the collection of Maria Jeritza.Slightly worn, creased and smudged; faint red ink stains.

        THE OLD PLANTATIONS AND THEIR OWNERS OF BRAZORIA COUNTY, TEXAS

      Houston: The Union National Bank, 1926., 1926. First edition. First edition. 8vo. Printed wrappers, [4], 46 pp., introductory, portraits, plates. Describes and lists plantations of Brazoria County and a brief history of each one. 42 plantations are reviewed including their history, the owners, the way of life, and their eventual demise. Some of the plantations are Peach Point, Lowwood, Ellersly, Pleasant Grove, Christopher Bell, Josiah Bell, Waldeck, Eagle Island, Lake Jackson, and many others. The introduction is provided by R. M. Farrar and he says "The author's opinions and observations on slavery and the Negro problem - north and south - are frank and dispassionate and, in my opinion, entitled to thoughtful consideration. The story that follows will be of surpassing interest to those who are interested in the glory and grandeur of the 'Old South' and in the romantic and tragic history of Brazoria County, which for a time, was early Texas, and which the author has woven into a historical narrative that contains much which should be preserved for posterity." Edges of the front and rear cover uniformly tanned, else a fine, tight copy of an informative booklet. The author was born on Drayton Plantation which is included in this discussion.

        [Op. 7]. Georg Büchners Wozzeck Oper in 3 Akten (15 Szenen)... Op. 7 Partitur. [Full score]

      Wien... Leipzig: Universal-Edition [PN U.E. 7379], [1926]. Folio. Black-cloth backed decorative paper boards with titling gilt to spine, original publisher's light green upper wrapper printed in dark green bound in. 1f. (title), 1f. (dedication in facsimile of Berg's handwriting: "Alma Maria Mahler zugeeignet"), [i] ("Szenarium" [table of contents]), [i] (list of orchestral instruments), [i] (cast list), [i] (instructions for performing the Sprechstimme), 5-405 (music), [i] (blank) pp. Printer's note to lower right corner of last page of music: "Waldheim-Eberle A.G., Wien, VII." A facsimile of the copyist's manuscript. Extensive markings in pencil and red crayon by an unknown conductor to pp. 55-89, 123-171, 215-237, 246-256, 275-348, and 364-405. Handstamp "00006" to upper left corner of upper wrapper. Binding slightly worn and rubbed; upper wrapper slightly worn and soiled; lower wrapper lacking. Slightly worn; tear to verso of blank outer edge of title repaired; corners of some leaves slightly creased; minor repair to blank outer edge of final leaf. First Edition. The spellings "orkester" (passim) and "kor" (p. 291) suggest that the performance for which this copy was used either took place in Scandinavia or was led by a Scandinavian conductor. Georg Büchner's (1813-1837) fragmentary drama Woyzeck [not "Wozzeck"] was written in 1836, but it remained unpublished until 1879 and did not see the stage before Max Reinhardt produced it in Munich in 1913. Its Viennese premiere, in 1914, prompted Berg to compose his opera--the first atonal opera in history and arguably the most successful one to this day. "Wozzeck was an epoch-making work that broke new ground musically, emotionally and dramatically. If Büchner's play was discovered and first performed at a time when its techniques and concerns seemed strikingly contemporary, it also appeared at a moment when its extreme states were peculiarly suited to Berg's musical language - an atonal language that, constantly hovering on the edge of tonal confirmation, becomes a perfect musical metaphor for the emotional and mental state of the opera's chief protagonist. The world that the opera presents is a projection of the tortured mind of Wozzeck himself: a world without normality or humanity and peopled by grotesques, a haunted world of strange, hallucinatory voices and visions and of natural phenomena indifferent to the human tragedy being played out." Douglas Jarman in Grove online.

        [Op. 28]. Drei Satiren für gemischten Chor Op. 28. [Score]

      Wien... New York: Universal-Edition [PN. U.E. 8586], 1926. First Edition, first issue. Rufer (Engl.) p. 48. Ringer p. 316. Tetsuo Satoh pp. 21-22. All texts are by Schoenberg himself. The second piece, "Vielseitigkeit," is a notorious spoof on Stravinsky, ridiculed as "der kleine Modernsky." "In a letter to Amadeo Filippi in May 1949 Schoenberg wrote that the Drei Satiren were composed when he had been very angered by the attacks by some of his younger contemporaries. Through the Satires he wanted to attack all those who 'seek personal salvation by taking the middle road...' Secondly, 'take aim at those who pretend to aspire "back to..." ' Thirdly, he wanted to attack the 'folklorists... and finally all those "ists" 'in whom I can only see mannerists. Their music is enjoyed most by those who constantly think of the slogan, which is intended to prevent them from thinking of anything else.' Joseph Auner: A Schoenberg Reader, pp. 186-7. Annegret Batschelet-Massini (1918-2004) was a Swiss violinist and music teacher, known as an ardent champion of contemporary music. Ernst Krenek dedicated his Albumblatt für Gesang und Klavier, op. 228 (1977), to her.. Small folio. Original light green printed wrappers. [1] (title), [2] (contents), 3-4 (preface), 5-6 (texts), 7 (notes on performance), 8-53 (music), 54-58 (appendix: tonal canons) pp. Printer's note to lower right corner of p. 58: "Stich u. Druck der Waldheim=Eberle A.G." Publisher's catalog no. 35 "Arnold Schönbergs Werke in der Universal-Edition" dated "VIII [August] 1926" to verso of lower wrapper. Early owner's signature in pencil to head of upper wrapper: "Annegret Batschelet-Massini 1.2.[19]55."

        The "Walking-Stick" Method of Self-Defence.

      London: Athletic Publications Ltd.,, [1926]. By an Officer of the Indian Police. Small octavo. Original red cloth, spine lettered in black, front board lettered and panelled in black. With the dust jacket. 16 double-sided photographic plates. Front board very lightly bowed, light spotting to edges. An excellent copy in the slightly soiled and nicked dust jacket with a toned and chipped spine panel and a closed tear along the front joint affecting half a letter. First edition of this idiosyncratic stick-fighting handbook combining the "canne" method of Swiss master Pierre Vigny (referred to by Lang as "Vigui") with the "bois" method widespread in the West Indies. The author, a police superintendent in Kathiawar, was born in Grenada in 1887, and possibly came into contact with canne in London, where Vigny taught between 1900 and 1911, including a period at E. W. Barton-Wright's Bartitsu Academy on Shaftesbury Avenue, which operated between 1898 and 1902. Barton-Wright's jujutsu-influenced "bartitsu" style was immortalised by Arthur Conan Doyle in the Sherlock Holmes story "The Adventure of the Empty House", in which Holmes claims to have bested Moriarty at the Reychenbach Falls using "baritsu" (sic). The popularity of canne and similar techniques faded in Europe after 1918 as "the canne was no longer a fashion accessory, street safety had improved, and many of the canne-fencing military teachers had been wounded or killed in the war" (Green and Svinth, eds, Martial Arts of the World, p. 220), though the testimonials in Lang's preface demonstrate his success in introducing his methods to police in Bombay, Sind and Pune; later, in Mandatory Palestine, "Lang's book formed the basis of self-defence training [for] thousands of Jews" (ibid.) Uncommon: four library copies traced in the UK (National Library of Scotland, Oxford, and two in the British Library); OCLC adds four copies world-wide, all in North America.

        Maternité

      Paris: Au Sans Pareil, 1926. 95[5]pp. Octavo. Bound in the original wrappers with a stiff blue wrap around jacket with dark blue lettering on the front and spine. One of 60 limited copies printed on Vergé de Hollande-- numbered 56 to 115-- with an extra suite of the 5 etchings by Marc Chagall in the latter portion of the book; this copy is #110. Deckling to all text block edges. Illustrated with five full page etchings by Chagall throughout the text with duplicate copies of the plates bound at the end; all the etchings have the original tissue guards. The blue jacket has faded quite a bit and is more of a buff colour and has some water stains on the back panel and to the spine in spots. Some transfer from the inner folds of the jacket is apparent on the ffep, although it is quite faint. Internally clean and an attractive copy overall. Limited to a printing of 960 copies in total, with 60 of those on Vergé de Hollande, of which this copy is one. In 1923 Marc Chagall moved to Paris and received several commissions for visual narratives, including this story by Marcel Arland. The text is comprised of a short story told in reverse, beginning with the death of a young girl's illegitimate baby and ending with the first night she and her lover spend together. The girl is vilified by her neighbors and Chagall's first image shows her being taken away by the police as a crowd yells and shames her. Another plate shows the girl giving birth alone in her backyard among the chickens and empty crates. Due to the popularity of Chagall's prints, many copies of this book were split apart and the etchings were sold individually. This is a complete and clean copy. 1926

        Ladonka: stikhi [The Amulet: poems]

      Russkaia tipografiia, izd. Gl. Pravleniia O-va Gallipoliitsev, Belgrade 1926 - Octavo (22.7 × 15.5 cm). Original pictorial wrappers by L. Kovalevskaia; 47, [1] pp. Frontis portrait of Savin and illustrations throughout by Kovalevskaia. Wrappers beginning to detach; upper spine extremity split (ca. 6 cm.); still a good or better copy. First edition of Ivan Savin's only collection of poetry. Ivan Savin (1899-1927), known by the last name Savolain prior to emigration, was a Russian writer and part of the first wave of white Russian emigres. Savin and his family suffered a tragic fate: nearly all of his family died during the Russian civil war and Savin was taken prisoner by the Red Army while serving in Crimea, somehow managing to escape execution. In 1922, he emigrated to Finland where he began to focus on journalism, prose, and poetry, contributing to emigre publications in Berlin, Riga, and Belgrade, as well as publishing stories, poems and essays in the Helsinki journal "Russkie vesti". His only collection of poetry, "Ladonka," published in Belgrade a year before his death, features poems dedicated to the camp of the White army in Gallipoli, Turkey. Much of his literary work is autobiographical and expresses his love for pre-revolutionary Russia; he viewed the Russian revolution as a tragic historical event. The poet Kasatkin-Rostovskii reviewed "Ladonka" in 1926, writing that Savin's poems "need to be experienced like a cry from the heart. In a small book, in vivid and beautiful poems, the soul of one who volunteered to fight the enslavers of Russia is expressed." For his use of features of romanticism, his impressionistic style, and his imagery and symbolism, Savin has sometimes been compared to Blok and Gumilev. He was called by critics the "poet of the white ideal." He died followed complications from appendicitis in 1927. His poetry was admired particularly by Kuprin and Bunin, who, after Savin's death, praised his poems for their "total uniqueness and pathos" as well as the "beauty and strength of their general tone". After the poet's death, his work remained popular amongst Russian emigres, including in displaced persons camps during WWII. A second supplemented edition of Ladonka was published in the US in 1956. OCLC shows copies at Harvard, Stanford Columbia, the Hoover Institute, Purdue, Illinois, Kansas, Syracuse universities, Amherst College, the University of Melbourne, Waseda University, BCU Dorigny, NEBIS Zurich, Staatsbibliothek Berlin, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek [held by 16 OCLC libraries].
