        The Bridge over San Luis Rey.

      London: Longmans, 1927 - Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine in gilt, vignette of author's signature to front cover. With the supplied dust jacket. A very good copy indeed, in a mildly toned jacket with a touch of skilful restoration to head of spine and tips. First edition (preceding the American edition by a few days), presentation copy, inscribed by the author for Lady Ottoline Morrell on the title page, "For Lady Ottoline with the best regards of Thornton Wilder / London January 1929", and with Morrell's ownership monogram in pencil on the front endpaper and occasional marginal pencil markings. Together with two autograph letters from Wilder to Morrell, both in their original envelopes. The first, one page on Savoy notepaper, dated 12 Jan 1929, states how he and his sister are looking forward to meeting Morrell, and thanking her for her "beautiful words about my book"; the second, one page of Yale University Elizabethan Club notepaper, dated 2 February 1929, thanks Morrell for her hospitality and for a copy of The Sentimental Journey. He also adds, "Your apologising for the monogram and the marginal markings will not be accepted; they make the book a sort of happy palimpsest". The Bridge over San Luis Rey had made Wilder famous and he was often in Europe in the 1920s, basking in its glory. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Depero futurista. 1913-1927 [Libro imbullonato ; bolted book]

      Edizione della Dinamo (in fine: Stampato nella Tipografia della Dinamo: «Mercurio» - Rovereto), 1927. Opera comunemente nota come «imbullonato», libro-oggetto tra i maggiori capolavori delle avanguardie storiche internazionali. Libro d'artista - uno dei quattro capolavori assoluti del futurismo italiano assieme al Bif&ZF di Soffici (1915) e ai libri in latta (1932 e 34). In copertina (e ripetuto in una sorta di «antifrontespizio figurato», la c. [2]) titolo e specifiche editoriali risultano: «Dinamo-Azari. Depero Futurista», Edizione italiana Dinamo Azari Milano [indirizzo e telefono] New-York - Paris - Berlin». Ciò che rende straordinaria questa creazione, ovvero la rilegatura a bulloni, è definita «rilegatura Dinamo creazione Azari». Tiratura dichiarata di 1.000 esemplari (tramite timbro solitamente apposto al verso del frontespizio). L'album raccoglie in sintesi l'attività deperiana nel periodo indicato dal titolo, oltre agli organigrammi e programmi ufficiali del movimento futurista. In realtà a prevalere sull'organicità del resoconto sintetico -- realizzato più attraverso formule promozionali-pubblicitarie che altro -- è la sperimentazione grafica, che coinvolge tutti i livelli dell'opera, dalla legatura in bulloni alla composizione tipografica (con il paroliberismo grafico deperiano portato ai massimi livelli: testo -- stampa prevalentemente in nero e rosso -- composto a forme geometriche, uso spregiudicato di caratteri cubitali e d'impaginazione verticale, a specchio o obliqua; inserimento di disegni o simboli nel testo), passando per l'impaginazione (uso alternato di carte di diverso colore e qualità).

        Sozialistische Möglichkeiten von heute [ First Edition ] Archiv für Sozialwissenschaft und Sozialpolitik. Separat-Abdruck aus Band 48, Heft 21

      Archiv für Sozialwissenschaft und Sozialpolitik. Separat-Abdruck aus Band 48, Heft 21, 1 brochure in-8, Verlag von J. C. B. Mohr (Paul Siebeck), Tübingen, 1921, pp. 305-360 Edition originale. Très rare exemplaire du tiré-à-part. Un article important qui anticipe sur les travaux que Schumpeter publiera ultérieurement sur le sujet, pour aboutir à son oeuvre maîtresse "Capitalism, socialism and democracy". Etat très satisfaisant (couverture frottée avec petits manques, nombreuses annotations de Georges-Henri Bousquet). De la bibliothèque du professeur Georges-H. Bousquet (1900-1978). Georges-Henri Bousquet (1900-1978), qui fut notamment professeur aux facultés d'Alger et de Bordeaux, était juriste de formation initiale (docteur en droit en 1923 avec une thèse sur "L'évolution sociale en Hollande 1914-1922"). Mais il reste surtout connu comme un économiste proche de Pareto (son maître en sociologie) et de Schumpeter, ainsi que comme un islamisant de l'école de Goldziher et Snouck-Hugronje. On peut signaler que le Professeur Bousquet est l'un des rares économistes français contemporains à être plusieurs fois cité dans la monumentale Histoire de l'Analyse Economique écrite par Joseph Schumpeter à la fin de sa vie. Les deux hommes se connaissaient personnellement depuis une première rencontre à Vienne en septembre 1923. A cette époque, G.-H. Bousquet fut présenté à Joseph Schumpeter, à Vienne, par Paul Lazarsfeld. Comme Bousquet le raconte lui-même : "A ce moment, Schumpeter avait 40 ans. Il était alors totalement ignoré en France, mais connu aux Etats-Unis où il avait été invité à professer quelque temps, et en Angleterre, où il avait eu également l'occasion de se faire entendre". Les deux hommes, qui deviendront amis, se rencontreront beaucoup plus longuement en 1933-1934 à Harvard, où Schumpeter sera devenu professeur. Georges Bousquet y effectuera en effet un long séjour de recherche, financé par la fondation Rockfeller. Toute sa carrière, Georges Bousquet sera fasciné par l'oeuvre de Schumpeter, qu'il fera notamment découvrir, tant par ses articles que par les discussions, à l'économiste François Perroux. Français

Of the five to six hundred books sketched by the pen of this indefatigable author, whose knowledge was encyclopaedic in its range and character, this book is one of the few valuable ones that have hitherto been practically unknown to the world, neither Brockelmann, Nicholson, Huart, nor Zaidan having ever mentioned it, or referred to the manuscripts, in their histories of Arabic literature. The book is a collection of 200 brief biographical sketches of the most distinguished men and women in the Muslim world who lived in or about the fifteenth century". Editor’s note. Size: 8vo.

Il fut notamment membre de la mission de la SDN pour la restauration financière de l'Autriche dans les années 20, et professeur aux facultés d'Alger puis de Bordeaux. G.-H. Bousquet fut proche de son maître en sociologie Vilfredo Pareto, dont il servit fortement sa pensée, qu'il rencontra en Suisse et avec lequel il entretint une correspondance. Outre Pareto, G.-H.

        Evert Taube (1927).

      Blyertsteckning. Med signatur och påskrift i blyerts: "Variantskiss av Evert Taube 1927 / E Forseth". 28,5 x 22,5 cm. Enstaka veck och riss, en liten bläckfläck i vänster marginal. Monterad på ett större blad. Proveniens: Konstnärens familj till 2013. Variant av det laverade Taubeporträtt som avbildas i Einar Forseths minnesbok Mälardrottningens Gyllene sal. Mosaikbitar ur ett brokigt konstnärsliv (1973), s. 80, och snarast bättre än detta. Dess bildtext lyder: "Evert Taube, min ungdomskamrat på Göteborgs Handelstidnings ritbyrå, här tecknad 1927 som källaren Den Gyldene Fredens trubadur".Om deras gemensamma historia berättar Forseth på s. 82-84. De två var nästan jämnåriga och träffades första gången på Göteborgs Handelstidnings ritbyrå 1908-1909, när Evert var 18, Forseth 16 år. "[Taube] var redan då en charmör och förledare. [...] Han fann snart ritbyråtillvaron alltför instängd och torftig. Redan då var han medveten om sina talanger som en benådad kavaljer och trubadur. En gång bad han att över en dag få låna min surt inbesparade tvåveckorslön på hela fjorton kronor, vilket han naturligtvis genast fick. Genom denna lättvindiga, spontana finansoperation möjliggjordes hans mönstring på den efterlängtade 'långseglare', som skulle föra honom ut på hans berömda färder jorden runt. I varje fall till de klassiska medelhavsländerna och sedan vidare ut på hans äventyrsfärder till Sydamerikas pampas, till gauchosadeln och Carmencitas bröst, totalt glömmande den lilla göteborgska ritbyrån och den handfallne kompisen, som fick suga på ramarna, när hans fattiga slantar flugit ut över jordklotet. Det skulle sedan dröja drygt tio år, innan vi återsågs i Stockholm. Det var när vår beundrade vän Anders Zorn förvärvat Den Gyldene Freden, som blev vårt mest kända stamlokus på den tiden. Vi och vår legendariske vän Jonas Lindh var de enda, som fick följa med Anders Zorn och hans arkitekt, Torsten Stubelius, ner i de gamla medeltida källarvalven, där sönderslagna tunnor, döda kattor och dynga låg i lager på varandra. [...] Det var där Evert Taube stiftade sin celebra orden 'Riddarna kring runda bordet' - salig i åminnelse - och genom sina lyckade ballader om 'bröder riddarna' gjorde dem så ofantligt populära. [...] Jag tror att Evert Taube och jag är de enda överlevande av dem som så festligt beskrivits i balladerna. [...] Denna Riddarbrödernas klang- och jubelperiod i Bellmans tecken varade en dekad, i varje fall så länge som vår generöse vän Gunnar Nylund stod för rusthållet på Freden under det glada tjugotalet. Under denna tid kom Evert Taube då och då upp till min söderbostad, sjöng och diktade vaggvisor för våra små grabbar, spelade på vår gamla Wienerflygel - och provade med välbehag mina fina slipsar. Så skildes våra vägar igen och han startade på allvar sitt seriösa författarskap, som ökade hans berömmelse år för år".

        28 April 1927 Typed Signed Letter from Winston S. Churchill on Chancellor of the Exchequer stationery to literary agent Curtis Brown (whose firm continues to represent the Churchill family to this day) regarding costs associated with printing The World Crisis

      11 Downing Street, London, 1927. Letter. This 28 April 1927 typed, signed letter from then-Chancellor of the Exchequer Winston S. Churchill to literary agent Curtis Brown questions printing costs for Volume III of The World Crisis. The letter is intriguing for documenting early relations with Brown, whose firm continues to represent the Churchill family, for demonstrating Churchill's ongoing drive to expunge the lingering taint of his role in the First World War, and for showing Churchill's full engagement in his literary endeavors even while consumed with his Cabinet duties. The letter is typed on a single sheet of embossed “11 Downing Street, Whitehall. S. W.” Exchequer stationery with Curtis Brown's date stamp receipt hand-dated “4/29/27” at the upper left corner. Churchill asks for an examination of “the charges for the printer's corrections” and expresses specific surprise “at the item of £131.9.3 for preparing maps for the printer.” He states “I must ask for the account in the fullest detail, and also for the actual cost of printing the maps.” and concludes “I am sending you a copy of the “Account for Corrections, etc.” which has been prepared for me by Mr. Butterworth.” The letter concludes with Churchill's holograph valedictory and signature “Yours vy trly, Winston S. Churchill”. The referenced “Account of Corrections, etc.” accompanies the letter, with a paperclip stain at the upper left corner matching a companion stain on the letter. The accounts statement is dated “27th April 1927” and specifically references “The World Crisis Volume III.” The itemized list of £603.2.5 includes the sum of £131.9.3 for “preparing maps for printers” questioned by Churchill. Other detailed charges include “Overtime”, deleted matter, errata slip printing and insertion “in 7500 volumes”, Index preparation, and “extra copies of Earl Haig's letter”. Condition of the letter and accompanying statement is very good. Both pages are complete, with no loss or tears, each showing three horizontal creases from original posting. Apart from the paperclip stains, the letter and accompanying itemized list of charges show only minor soiling and toning. The letter was formerly part of the legendary Churchill collection of Malcolm S. Forbes, Jr. The important literary and talent agency founded in 1899 by American-born Albert Curtis Brown (1886-1945) still bears his name and still represents many Churchill family intellectual property assets, also working closely with the Sir Winston Churchill Archive Trust. The World Crisis is Winston Churchill's epic history of the First World War, in which he nearly lost both his political career and his corporeal life. First Lord of the Admiralty from 1911 until 1915, after the Dardanelles disaster, Churchill was scapegoated and forced to resign. He spent political exile as a lieutenant colonel leading a battalion in the trenches. Before war's end, Churchill was exonerated and rejoined the Government, but the stigma lingered, providing more than just a literary compulsion to write his history, published in six books between 1923 and 1931. Part III (published 3 March 1927) covers 1916-1918, including Churchill's time at the Front and subsequent return to the Cabinet. It was for The World Crisis that Churchill first engaged Brown in the 1920s, driving a hard bargain; Brown would earn his 10 per cent commission only if royalties exceeded £15,000. (No More Champagne: Churchill and His Money, 126-127) When Churchill wrote this letter, he had introduced his third Budget in the House of Commons just a few weeks prior and addressed the House of Commons about the Budget on both the 26th and 28th of April. It is interesting that Churchill impressed his concerns about his publisher's charges on his Chancellor of the Exchequer stationery. Despite the fact that “there were few writers of importance who were not Curtis Brown clients at some point in their careers” (ODNB) only one Brown client controlled the budget of the British Empire.

        Three original ink and watercolour drawings of Duncan by the American modernist artist Abraham Walkowitz

      "[Duncan's] insistence on dancing to concert music paralleled her belief that dance was an art capable of expressing the highest aspirations of the soul. She admired the integration of dance in ancient Greek ritual and theater, and took inspiration from Greek sculpture. The simplicity of her costumes, which were based on Greek tunics, was matched by the unadorned curtains she used as her stage setting. She wished to reinstate in dance the sense of naturalness she perceived in the ancient Greeks and showed that simple movements such as walking, running, and skipping could be used as expressive components of the dancer's movement vocabulary. Although her work is generally regarded as a precursor of modern dance, Duncan also influenced ballet choreographers such as Michel Fokine, particularly in introducing a freer, more fluid use of the torso, untrammeled by the corset that was then a part of the ballerina's uniform. Her simplicity and naturalness seemed radical to audiences accustomed to the visual and choreographic extravagances of the ballet... Her name has evoked a daring, unfettered spirit, and her willingness to defy convention blazed a path for the dancers and choreographers who followed her." Susan Au in Grove Music Online. Walkowitz was born in Tyumen, Siberia to Jewish parents... He studied at the National Academy of Design in New York City and the Académie Julian in Paris under Jean-Paul Laurens. Walkowitz and his contemporaries later gravitated around photographer Alfred Stieglitz's 291 Gallery, originally titled the Little Galleries of the Photo-Secession, where the forerunners of modern art in America gathered and where many European artists were first exhibited in the United States... Walkowitz's dedication to Duncan as a subject extended well past her untimely death in 1927. The works reveal shared convictions toward modernism and breaking links with the past. In 1958, Walkowitz told Lerner, "She (Duncan) had no laws. She did not dance according to the rules. She created. Her body was music. It was a body electric, like Walt Whitman... While never attaining the same level of fame as his contemporaries, Walkowitz' close relationship with the 291 Gallery and Alfred Stieglitz placed him at the center of the modernist movement. His early abstract cityscapes and collection of over 5,000 drawings of Isadora Duncan also remain significant art historical records." Wikipedia.. Each drawing ca. 170 x 165 mm. All signed by the artist ("A Walkowitz") in ink at lower portion of sheet. Slightly worn, browned, and stained; remnants of mounting adhesive to verso.
