        Frauenakt. Tuschzeichnung.

      1927 1927 - 30 x 24 cm, Gerahmt *18.11.1895 Aarau, ?14.5.1941 Ascona (TI). Zeichner, Maler und Grafiker. Veristische und expressionistische Darstellungen von Randexistenzen der Gesellschaft.Bis zum Tod des Vaters 1907 mehrmaliger Wohnsitzwechsel zwischen Zürich und Genf; im gleichen Jahr Tod der beiden Schwestern an Tuberkulose. Die Mutter zieht mit Robert, der sich später in Anlehnung an Johannes den Täufer den Vornamen Johannes zulegt, nach Zürich. Schürch beginnt eine Lehre in einem grafischen Atelier. Schüler des Malers Ernst Otto Leuenberger in Zollikon. Arbeit als Plakatzeichner. 1914 Aktivdienst. Die Mutter sendet Zeichnungen Schürchs an Hodler, der ihnen rät, nach Genf zu ziehen. 1916 für zwei Monate an der Ecole des Beaux-Arts und an der Privatschule Eugène Gilliards. Schürch wird Hodlers Gehilfe. Lernt den Unternehmer Kurt Sponagel kennen, der fortan sein Mäzen und wichtigster Sammler wird; ab 1919 umfangreicher Briefwechsel. Vom Sommer 1920 bis Herbst 1921 in Choëx oberhalb Montheys im Wallis. Mit einem Stipendium der Armin-Honegger-Stiftung der Zürcher Kunstgesellschaft von Oktober 1921 bis in den Frühling 1922 mit der Mutter in Florenz, wo er Max Gubler und Max Hunziker begegnet; Kopien nach Masaccio und Memling. Die Fülle an Kunst und das städtische Leben in Florenz verwirren ihn. Zusammen mit der Mutter, die den Lebensunterhalt der beiden mit journalistischer und schriftstellerischer Tätigkeit verdient, Rückzug in ein kleines Chalet in Monti oberhalb Locarnos; für die nächsten zehn Jahre Existenz in grosser Armut und Isolation. 1932 gibt Schürch das Eremitenleben auf, löst sich von der Mutter und wohnt in Rebhäuschen in Minusio und Brione. Freundschaft mit Fritz Pauli und Ignaz Epper. 1934 zieht er nach Ascona und verkehrt in den Künstlerkreisen im Umfeld des Monte Verità. Ab 1937 wohnt er mit seiner Lebensgefährtin Erica Leutwyler in Ascona. 1939 Tod der Mutter. Im September wird er zum Hilfsdienst in der Leventina eingezogen, erkrankt und wird aus dem Dienst entlassen. 1940 verschlimmern sich seine gesundheitlichen Probleme, die ihn seit einem schweren Autounfall 1933 plagen. 1941 stirbt Schürch an offener Tuberkulose. Werkwürdigung: Der hochtalentierte Zeichner Schürch verarbeitet in der Zeit vor seinem Aufenthalt in Monti ein breites Spektrum an Vorbildern, von Mantegna, Rubens und Rembrandt über Puvis de Chavannes, Delacroix, Cézanne und Rodin bis zu Hodler und den Kubisten. Erst in der freiwilligen Isolation findet er zu seinem eigenen Stil. In meist kleinformatigen lavierten Feder- und Tuschpinselzeichnungen sowie Aquarellen und Gouachen notiert er ohne ästhetische Absicht mit höchster Intensität seine ihn bedrängenden Gesichte, denen er sich vorbehaltlos ausliefert. Sowohl quantitativ als auch qualitativ bilden diese «Spontanzeichnungen» (Peter F. Althaus), die zeit seines Lebens nie ausgestellt worden sind, den Schwerpunkt seines Werkes. Von Sponagel angekauft und von einem kleinen Publikum rezipiert wurden einzig detailliert ausgearbeitete Feder- und Bleistiftzeichnungen sowie Radierungen von Dirnen, Proletariern und Zirkusartisten. Die Protagonisten seiner pessimistischen Bildwelt erinnern an Figuren Dostojewskis, Käthe Kollwitz', Toulouse-Lautrecs und Heinrich Zilles und sind zusammen mit Selbstporträts, Dämonen, weiblichen Akten und Todesmotiven Ausdruck der Identifikation des Künstlers mit gesellschaftlichen Aussenseitern und an ihrer Existenz leidenden Menschen. Schürch hat durch seinen Rückzug aus der Gesellschaft, seine mystische Veranlagung und seine konsequente Ablehnung jedes künstlerischen Kompromisses selbst zu seinem Ruf als Outsider beigetragen, der ihm bis heute anhaftet. Die Zeichnungen und die weniger zahlreichen, düsteren Ölbilder lassen ihn, der immer wieder zusammen mit Epper und Pauli genannt wird, als einen verspäteten Expressionisten erscheinen, der veristische und neusachliche Stilelemente ebenso sicher verarbeitet wie er mit der Unmittelbarkeit der Surrealisten seine «visionär-grotesken» B

      London Methuen & Co. 1927 - First edition. With illustrations by Ernest H. Shepard. 8vo, publisher’s original red cloth pictorially decorated and lettered in gilt on covers and spine, t.e.g., pink illustrated endpapers. x, 103 pp. A handsome and well preserved copy, quite fresh, with extremely minor mellowing to the spine, the text-block and illustrations all bright and clean and the hinges strong and tight. FIRST EDITION OF A CLASSIC. This third book in the quartet written by Milne, inspired by his young son Christopher, and illustrated by Shepard was an instant success. Like WHEN WE WERE YOUNG, NOW WE ARE SIX is a joyful combination of verse and pictures designed to captivate young readers. Christopher Milne wrote of his father’s stories: "It is difficult to be sure which came first. Did I do something and did my father then write a story about it? Or was it the other way about, and did the story come first? Certainly my father was on the lookout for ideas; but so too was I. He wanted ideas for his stories, I wanted them for my games, and each looked towards the other for inspiration. But in the end it was all the same: the stories became part of our lives; we lived them, thought them, spoke them."-Enchanted Places. Most likely it was this unique collaboration between father and son which makes these little stories and poems so intimate and personal. Milne had bought a country house in Sussex, and it was there that many of his poems were set. Amid fields, under cherry trees, in rustic barnyards, and down by the pond, these poetic yarns lead young minds to a refreshing holiday in nature. And, as always, Shepard’s drawings capture our hearts with their endearing images of a boy and his roly-poly teddy bear, their endless adventures, and much much more. These buoyant illustrations are sure to bring a smile to the innate child buried somewhere within each of us. And who can resist the charm of Milne’s writing when in a P.S. to his introduction he notes: "Pooh wants us to say that he thought it was a different book; and he hopes you won’t mind, but he walked through it one day, looking for his friend Piglet, and sat down on some of the pages by mistake."

Tirage limité à 287 EXEMPLAIRES, celui-ci un des 235 numérotés sur vergé de Montval (n°110). «Dans toutes ces planches domine un ton d'ocre pâle; la gravure du trait est tirée dans un gris qui sert aussi à des indications de modelé. Un rose délicat anime les nus de rehauts discrets. Parfois un vert, un bleu, un rouge, jette une note vive. Mais ce sont les noirs surtout, des noirs profonds dont l'artiste a su jouer avec une rare maîtrise, qui mettent en valeur et font chanter les harmonies légères de ces charmantes évocations. Sylvain Sauvage nous donne seulement l'image stylisée d'une sensualité très près de la nature, d'une franchise parée de simple poésie?» (Marcel Valotaire).

        Exhibitors Herald. The Independent Film Trade Paper (Vol. 30, June 18, 1927 - September 10, 1927)

      NP n/d - Thirteen issues (all complete) bound in brown cloth with gold lettering on spine. Seven issues in two parts. Includes all original printed and illustrated orange front and rear wraps. The Exhibitors Herald was founded in 1915 as a film trade magazine for independent exhibitors and distributors. One of the publisher's and editor's was Catholic layman Martin J. Quigley. In 1927 the periodical combined with the Moving Picture World and in 1931 merged with the Motion Picture Herald, which united all major 'film' weeklies. The magazine provides an invaluable source of information from the silent-film era. Many of the films were lost and trade journals like the Exhibitors Herald entail plot synopses, new releases, reviews, information on actors, directors, writers, producers, etc., production, photographs and many illustrations, as well as stunning graphic advertisements. Each issue includes the classic column "What the Picture did for Me" (Verdicts on films in language of exhibitor ), in which theater owners from across the country share their experiences of every release. Profusely illustrated with b/w reproductions of photographs of artists such as Charlie Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Mary Pickford, Gloria Swanson, Douglas Fairbanks, Norma Talmadge, John Barrymore, D. W. Griffith, Harold Lloyd, Fay Wray, Norma Shearer, Lon Chaney, James Cruze, William Powell, Victor Fleming, Billy Butts, Anna Q. Nilsson, Victor McLaglen, William Boyd, Rudolph Schildkraut, Dolores Del Rio, Ernst Lubitsch, John Ford, Josef von Sternberg, Donald Crisp, Lewis Milestone, Eric von Stroheim, and many others. Includes many movie advertisements in rich vibrant colors, some with photomontages, others in drawings. Includes sixteen-page section of Tiffany Productions for 1927-1928, profusely illustrated with reproductions of drawings in duo tone. Some age wear, staining and scuffing on cloth. All wrappers and interior in very good to near fine condition. Scarce 1927's film journals with hundreds of illustrations in brilliant colors. Consecutive run from June 18, 1927 - September 10, 1927.

Lg. 8vo., pp.378, dialect key map ep's, black topstain, stunning African inspired & designed black & ochre printed cloth with small decorative illustrations in-text.

Contains 103 original folk-tales, compiled from all over Africa, all of which were chosen by one of the 20th century's most important French poets. The translator, Margery Bianco was Margery (Bianco) Williams, author of "The Velveteen Rabbit." A major undertaking & acknowledged masterpiece, this volume brings to the English speaking world, for the very first time, the rich & sensitive images gathered from the Bantu, Haussa, Hottentot, Sumali & others. "And so in this anthology we have not only the wit & wisdom of Africa but the soul of a people which may be judged by the criteria of pure letters" - from the intro. by Arthur B. Spingarn. An important work by this master traveler, cubist, poet & novelist who impacted directly on the thinking of Max Jacob, Apollinaire, Cocteau & Andre Salmon with his innovative poetic techniques & revolutionary observations.

        Ulysses.

      Rhein-Verlag 1927 - Translated by Georg Goyert. Basel: Rhein-Verlag, 1927. Three volumes. Original half morocco over patterned paper boards, gilt morocco lettering-pieces, the spines numbered in gilt, top edges gilt, others uncut. FIRST EDITION IN GERMAN, LIMITED TO 1000 COPIES, THIS NUMBER 1 SIGNED BY JOYCE. THE FIRST PUBLISHED UNDER JOYCE'S SUPERVISION. A German edition of Ulysses was originally planned by Deutsche Verlag in 1924, but failed to appear. The project was then taken over by Joyce's German publisher Rhein-Verlag, who held a competition to find a translator for Ulysses. The competition was won by Georg Goyert and in August 1926 he met with Joyce in Ostend to revise the text. Joyce's reaction to the publication schedule was ambivalent; as he wrote to Harriet Shaw Weaver, Last week the entire typescript of Ulysses in German arrived and on top of it the German translator to revise it with me. We work together all day practically, word for word. They want to bring it out in October! I hope the German publisher won't rush the translation--and me (letter of 29 August 1926, J. Joyce Letters (London: 1957-1966) III, p.142). However, the writer's fears were realised, and in November he expressed his annoyance to his brother Stanislaus Joyce thus: The Germans, having given me four days at Ostende, to revise the translation with the translator (we did 88 pages) are now rushing the translation into print. It is of course full of the absurdest errors and with large gaps. Such is financial literature (letter of 5 November 1926, J. Joyce op. cit., III, p.145). But, despite his initial trepidation, Joyce seems to have been pleased with the edition when it appeared in Autumn 1927, and he wrote to Daniel Brody of Rhein-Verlag on receipt of a copy to congratulate him on the fine production of the work: [Gestatten Sie dass ich Ihnen meinen besten Dank ausdrücke für Ihre höfliche Gedacht. Die Ausgabe ist wirklich sehr schön und geschmackvoll und hoffentlich wird sie auch in materiellen sowohl als in literarischem Sinn ein Lohn für alle Ihre Bemühungen (letter of 6 November 1927, J. Joyce op. cit. III, p.165). However, the writer's fears were realised, and in November he expressed his annoyance to his brother Stanislaus Joyce thus: The Germans, having given me four days at Ostende, to revise the translation with the translator (we did 88 pages) are now rushing the translation into print. It is of course full of the absurdest errors and with large gaps. Such is financial literature. The publication was successful, and on 19 November Joyce sent a postcard to Claud W. Sykes stating that The edition was sold out in 3 weeks (J. Joyce op. cit. III, p.167). The limited edition of 1,000 copies for sale was issued in a half morocco binding (as here) and in green wrappers; as Slocum and Cahoon note, The emphasis on the private nature of the publication and the strict limitation of copies was caused by some fear that Ulysses might be subject to censorship.

        ULYSSES

      Paris Shakespeare and Company 1927 - First Edition, ninth printing, and the true Paris issue of the 1927 printing. Square 8vo, bound in the publisher’s original blue wraps formatted as the first edition of 1922, printed and lettered in white on the upper cover and spine. [6], 735 pp. An especially well preserved and handsome copy, especially so for the original wrappers and textblock which remains largely unopened and pristine. A fine copy of the original "Shakespeare and Company" --Sylvia Beach-- advertising card is still enclosed, the text block very fine, the wrappers with only some minor and expected mellowing or evidence of age, but clearly an unused, unread copy and quite rare thus. SCARCE EARLY PRINTING OF ULYSSES. THE RARE TRUE SHAKESPEARE AND COMPANY 1927 PRINTING IN UNREAD, UNOPENED, PRISTINE STATE. The most important novel of the twentieth century . ULYSSES can be viewed as the pinnacle of the Modernist movement, and its impact on all subsequent western literature is unmistakable. Such writers as Virginia Woolf, John Dos Passos, William Faulkner, Samuel Beckett, Malcolm Lowry, and Anthony Burgess have all paid tribute, consciously or unconsciously, to Joyce's influence. Burgess as well pronounced it the greatest single work in the English literature of this century, and he is not alone in that opinion. According to James Spoerri, "This fortunate combination of printer and publisher resulted in the appearance of ULYSSES as a book whose physical aspect is particularly suited to its content. It is (an). inviting volume, the blue and white of its covers subtly evocative of the Greece whose epic it so closely parallels" (quoted in the catalogue for the Garden Sale, Sotheby's 1989).
