        Forty-Seven Love Poems

      London: Jonathan Cape 1927 - Translated from the original Russian by Natalie Duddington. First edition, limited issue of 300 numbered copies, of which this is #52. Publisher's blue cloth, with the spine lettered in gilt, publisher's device to the rear board in blind, printed on laid paper. Near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, minor toning to the spine, faint offsetting to the endpapers, former owner's inscription to the front pastedown, otherwise bright and fresh pages. A lovely copy. Scarce. Forty-Seven Love Poems is a collection of Akhmatova's poetry from 1912-1921 arranged in loose chronological order. Although she had already published five collections of poetry in her native Russian, this volume represents Akhmatova's first English language publication. In her introduction, translator Natalie Duddington acknowledges to problematic nature of translated poetry, but states the magnificence of Akhmatova's poetry is not lost in translation. Duddington explains, "The melody of the verse is of course lost irretrievably; but beauty of sound is not the chief characteristic of Akhmatova's poetry." Instead, she writes, it is the "extraordinary concreteness;" her poems "produce the impression of an intimate conversation rather than a song and indeed she deliberately uses the language of everyday life." Along with her husband poet Nikolai Gumilev, Akhmatova lead the Acmeism movement in Russian poetry, whose use of firm and classic structure stood in stark contrast with the Russian Symbolists' apocalyptic ideology.

        TREASURE ISLAND

      Benn 1927 - First edition, Edition de Luxe. Number 4 of only 50 copies, signed by Edmund Dulac. Publisher's creamy vellum with leather title label. Top edge gilt. A very good copy indeed, vellum a little bowed with a couple of minor marks. Page edges slightly browned and some foxing to the preliminaries and occasionally to a plate mount. Twelve colour plates and numerous black and white drawings in the text. The tiny print run makes this one of the rarest of all the illustrated gift books. The illustrations for this book mark a new departure in Dulac's work. He enters a phase of greens and blues, views the scenes from above and afar. Hughey says, "The detailing and design of the pictures present some of Dulac's most careful and superb painting." In fact, the watercolours he produced for this book were his own favourites.

        NOW WE'RE IN THE AIR (1927)

      USA 1927 - Vintage original 27 x 41" (68 x 103 cm.) one sheet poster style B, USA. Wallace Beery, Raymond Hatton, Louise Brooks, Russell Simpson. Dir: Frank Strayer; Paramount. An early yet prominent depiction of iconic Louise Brooks on a poster. This was a "buddy film", with Beery and Hatton playing cousins who get mixed up with the U.S. Flying Corps while on a quest to collect the fortune of their grandfather, who was an aviation nut. It is, unfortunately, a lost film. Beery and Brooks would soon team for the classic BEGGARS OF LIFE. Director Strayer would be known for the BLONDIE film series of the 1930s. Specific to 1927 only, Paramount produced one sheet posters with an open area towards the bottom to display their theater's information. Louise Brooks posters are extremely rare. On linen, this poster was in very nice condition even prior to linen backing, NEAR FINE.

        ROUGH HOUSE ROSIE (1927)

      USA 1927 - Vintage original 27 x 41" (68 x 103 cm.) one sheet poster style B, USA. Clara Bow, Reed Howes, Arthur Housman, Doris Hill, Douglas Gilmore, dir: Frank R. Strayer: Paramount. This prime Clara Bow vehicle with story by Nunnally Johnson is, sadly, amongst films considered lost. The trailer, however, survives and gives us a bit of a look at the liveliness of the story. Clara plays Rosie O'Reilly, an ambitious girl with a boxer boyfriend (Reed Howes). With aspirations to better herself in society, she puts together a boxing/dancing nightclub act and attempts to break into society. Here she is showing one of her "gloved" boxing moves with Howes. Specific to 1927 only, Paramount produced one sheet posters with an open area towards the bottom to display theater information. On linen, there has been skillful conservation of handling wear, primarily to blank areas, and poster now displays very nicely, NEAR FINE.

        SUNRISE (1927)

      USA 1927 - Vintage original 15 x 11" (37 x 28 cm.) folded / 35 x 22" (87 x 55 cm.) unfolded special promotional poster, USA. George O'Brien, Janet Gaynor, Margaret Livingston, dir: F. W. Murnau; Fox. The full title of this classic is "Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans", and that was most appropriate. It is the story of a young married farmer and his wife. When he falls under the spell of a city woman, he attempts to take the life of his wife -- but he cannot, and they spend a wonderful day in the city together, falling more in love with each other. The film likely is Murnau's greatest work and is to this day felt to be amongst the very finest of all silent films. It is the film which people come away from understanding the great artistic achievement of what silent motion picture-making was all about. It was greatly honored in its day as well, basically winning an Academy Award during the very first Oscar ceremony for Best Picture, Unique and Artistic Production -- a very appropriate award indeed. Gaynor would win the first Best Actress award for this and two other films that year. Today, it has the distinction of being the very first silent film to be released on Blu-ray. No explanation can do this film justice and it just needs to be experienced. Much of the film was shot on locations at Big Bear and San Bernardino National Forest, California, but it appears as well as the studio back lot. This special promotional poster presents itself as a program but then opens up to a two-sided poster promoting the mastery of the film with reviews, 16 scene still images, 3 images from the Carthay Circle Theatre premiere in Los Angeles, as well as opening in Philadelphia and New York and theatre play statistics on the reverse side. Cover art of Janet Gaynor and George O'Brien is by Jochimsen. Truly, Fox realized the brilliance of this film during the initial release. Folded, minor wear. ABOUT FINE.

Shigeo Miyao (1902- 1983) was primarily known as a manga artist creating humorous children's manga such as Kushisuke Manyuki (""The Adventures of Dango Kushisuke"") during the Taisho period. He was born in Tokyo and studied manga with Okamoto Ippei (1886-1948), generally considered the godfather of manga. He was one of the first artists to use the word manga (literally, ""funny pictures"") close to its current sense. ""Miyao had the distinction of being one of the first professional artists to specialize in children's comics."" In 1922, he began serializing a 6-panel Manga Taro [Comics Taro] in a daily newspaper which the following year was put into book form ""just in time for most copies to be destroyed in the 1923 earthquake. In the present book he writes of the adventures of the samurai super-hero, Karutobi Karusuke. (See Schodt, Manga! Manga! The World of Japanese Comics, 1986, p. 48-49.) Sixty-three hits for Miyao in OCLC, all but one after 1948, the earliest being 1934."

Beiliegend Tietze, G. Frankl mit S. 17 - 25 (Oeuvre-Katalog). - Passepartouts angestaubt. - Frankl (1901 - 1965) widmete sich nach einem Jahr an der Technischen Univeristät Wien, der Malerei. Nach der anfänglichen Orientierung an seinem Lehrer Anton Kolig wandte er sich dem Studium der alten Meister zu und paraphrasierte u.a. Bilder von Peter Paul Rubens, Konrad Witz, Abraham van Bayeren, Pieter Bruegel d. Ä. und Jan Fyt. Entscheidend für seiner weitere Entwicklung wurde die Kenntnis der Malerei Paul Cézannes, von deren Einfluss Frankls Landschaften und Stilleben der zwanziger und dreißiger Jahre geprägt sind. Während des Londoner Exils konzentrierte er sich auf Landschaftsaquarelle und -zeichnungen. Nach dem Kreigsende hielt er Vorlesungen in Cambridge und London. Die Bilder des ersten Nachkriegsaufenthaltes in Wien reflektieren symbolhaft das Bild der Stadt in einer teils kubistisch oder konstruktivistisch ausgerichteten Formensprache. Um 1960 fand Frankl zu einer pastellhaften, malerischen Bildstruktur, die die Grenzen der Gegenständlichkeit fast völlig sprengt. Seine letzte Werkgruppe 1964/65 ist der Bildzyklus In Memoriam, in dem er in drastischem Realismus die Greuel der nationalsozialistischen Konzentrationslager verarbeitet, denen auch seine Eltern zum Opfer gefallen waren. (siehe auch die Publikation "Gerhart Frankl. Oeuvre-Katalog der Radierungen" der Galerie Welz 1994). - Hier eindrucksvolle Kaltnadelradierungen, vor seiner Emigration nach London. Deutsch
