      München, London u.a., von 1885 bis, 1927. - meist Postkartenformat. zusammen etwa 40 Karten, 10 Photos, 2 Zeichnungen und weitere Beigaben "Reiches Material beginnend mit dem Tiermaler Emil Adam, der in ganz Europa berühmte Rennpferde für Ihre Besitzer portraitierte. Er berichtet auf 12 eigenhändigen Karten zwischen 1885 und etwa 1910 über Arbeiten in Wien, Ungarn, Antwerpen, Newark und London. Auf einer Karte schwärmt er von Pretty Polly ("sie ist unbedingt das beste Pferd der Gegenwart" - gehörte Major Eustace Loder), seiner Frau berchtet er ferner über Reiserlebnisse, die Schwierigkeiten, gute Aufträge zu erhalten, Jagdgesellschaften und die Hoffnung, sie malen zu können etc. Aus London 1885: "Werde Dir Samstag Geld senden, da ich bereits von Lord Calthorp Geld res. Check erhalten. Bild dem Club sehr gefallen aber keinen bestimmten Auftrag erhalten." - Etwas später: "Komme heute unmöglich zu längerem Schreiben werde vielleicht außer ein paar schon erhaltenen kleineren Aufträgen den Derbysieger zu malen bekommen; auch steht mir sonst noch Einiges in Sicht. Bis in einigen Tagen werde ich Alles erfahren." - Aus Antwerpen: "Bin bei prachtvollem (und auch anhaltendem) Wetter hier angekommen und habe ein famoses Zimmer im ersten Stock mit Balkon, gerade dem Ausstellungsgebäude gegenüber gefunden, so daß ich Abends das Concert vom Zimmer aus hören kann. Die Ausstellung die sehr schön ist habe ich bereits durchflogen. Soeben Nachm. 5 Uhr habe ich Dell?Acqua . und werde morgen mit einem der ersten Züge nach Brüssel fahren .? Bei dem erwähnten ?Dell?Acqua? handelt es sich um den italienischen Maler Cesare Felice Giorgio Dell?Acqua (1821-1905) etc. - Ferner mehrere Postkarten von den Söhnen Richard Benno und Luitpold, die ebenso von ihrer Arbeit und aus ihrem Leben berichten. Hier sind Emil bzw. seine Frau die Empfänger. Beiliegen auch einige Postkarten anderer Schreiber, die auf Nachfragen zur Geschichte der Familie Adam antworten. Emils Vater war der Tiermaler Benno Rafael Adam (1812-1892), sein Grossvater der bedeutende Schlachten- und Portraitmaler Albrecht Adam (1786-1862). Die beiliegenden Photos dokumentieren Bilder aus der Familie. Die kleine Zeichnung mit einem Hund, der ein Spruchband im Maul trägt, ist 1890 datiert und stammt wohl von Emil. Das Aquarell zeigt eine nur teils mit einem transparenten Schleier umhüllte, sonst nackte Nymphe in einem Wald. - Schöne Sammlung aus dem Nachlass der Familie mit sehr umfangreichem Material zur Geschichte der Malerdynastie Adam.

        Istoriia VKP (b) v sezdakh.

      Kharkov, Izdatelstvo "Proarlii", 1927-28. 14 parts, 8vo. All in the original wrappers, printed in two colours, in the original printed (slightly worn) folder. This is a rare survival of the history and documentation of the first 14 party congresses of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (Bolshevik), and their subsumed predecessor organization, the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party, edited and partly written by the first offical Party historian, the revolutionary, doctor of history and member of the party since 1898, Lepshinskii. Born in 1868, he had joined Narodnaia Volnia as an 18-year old, and met Lenin in the late 1890s in Siberia. As an active revolutionary he was arrested and banished a few times. In the 1920s he was one of the founders and directors of Istpart (Commission on Party History) and in 1927 he became director of the Historical Museum, in the 1930s director of the Museum of the Revolution in Moscow. About half of the issues are in 'second edition', i.e. second print run, which varied betwen 7000 and 10,000 copies; not much given the size of the Soviet population. Very few libraries hold single reports only, New York Public Library has a later volume of 16 reports published together in book form; not in COPAC.

        The Story of My Experiments with Truth.

      Ahmedabad: Navajivan Press, 1927-9.. FIRST EDITION IN BOOK-FORM, also the FIRST ENGLISH LANGUAGE PRINTING, translated from the Gujarati. Octavo, 2 volumes COMPLETE, with sepia portraits of the author in each. Pale green linen-covered boards, blocked in dark blue, in original grey dust-wrappers blocked in the same fashion, priced at 5/8 rupees to spine, edges untrimmed. Some very light and occasional spotting, books and jackets lightly handled and edgeworn, spine a little toned to volume one. There is none of the inherent browning of the endpapers and the contents are remarkably fresh. Both volumes contain a contemporary gift note to Scottish academic Stanley W. Davies, from the legal historian and author Mahtabsing Sahibsing Shahani of Delhi. The fact that both volumes when new were sent to a more favourable climate would account for this exceptional survival. This two-volume work is an inestimable rarity, essentially unheard of in decent jackets; the present example is near fine. Mahatma Gandhi [1869-1948), the inspirational major political and spiritual leader of India. His autobiography was serialized in Gujarati in the weekly magazine Navjivan, 1925-28 and is collected in book-form as two volumes, being published two years apart. Occasionally mis-described as 'Holland', it was in fact bound in 'khadi' cloth, a homespun linen that Gandhi adopted as a symbol of Indian struggle against the British, this material also being used for the traditional clothing of the printers who produced this book, and seemingly a delicacy to the insect life of the Indian subcontinent. It has long been described as a tan colour binding, yet the true shade is a fugitive pale green as seen here- even this fine copy has slightly sunned to beige/tan at the extremities. The two-volume work is uncommon in any condition (7 at auction in 35 years) and has, to my knowledge never been encountered in collectable condition in jacket; just two wrappered copies are recorded at auction, -one an ex-library set, suitably worn and another 'frayed' example around volume two only.

        Zhelezni ikoni [Iron icons]

      Novo iskustvo [New art], Sofia 1927 - Original publisher's wrappers, 12mo - 177/130mm., 46+2 p. (See Domenico Jacono, Bulgarian modernism 1919-1934, N 37, p.47). First edition of this program poetical book, printed in the same publishing house where were issued Lamar's magazine "Novis". The once in this book with revolutionary verses is the new religion with their new icons - hammered (not just made) from iron. The woodcut by Max Metzger (see Ruja Marinska, 20ties in the Bulgarian art, p. 126) on the front cover visualize the essence of these poems: The opened (without walls) temple, ringing bell and speech - this is the constructivist image of the new religion. The traditional icon is replaced by the title of the book - the image of the saint (saints) was replaced by the words of revolution. Under the arch we see a symbol of a musical note depicted the move - it's ringing the bells of new knowledge. The new icons are not silent anymore, they speak loudly, they are iron words. But. A little more distant glance will recognize a male face with left blinking eye. More precisely - a stylized portrait of a certain tragic figure of that era. The letters of the title "Iron Icons" closed lower half of this portrait, where the mouth is suppose to be. From this perspective, already overlapping geometric shapes below will distinguish black boots. In the heel of the left boot, in white circle we can see "X" - that is the Bulgarian letter for "H". Honestly, we prefer the first interpretation (M. Dimitrov). About this copy. Very good at all with a few small shortcomings. Slightly uneven outlines and rounded corners, two missing parts at the edges of the spine (about 1 cm. each). The pictures shows real colors etc. Our images aren't splendid, but are true. We stay available for any question and extra pictures on request. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The etchings of Norman Lindsay

      London : Constable & Co., 1927. Folio, gilt-lettered blue buckram (spine faded, one corner slightly bumped), top edge gilt, 45 leaves of plates with accompanying title leaf, each a fine photogravure reproduction of a Norman Lindsay etching, occasional foxing. Limited to 129 copies of which 120 were for sale, signed and numbered by Norman Lindsay. A de luxe edition of 31 copies with the original etching 'Your Fate' was also issued. The etchings of Norman Lindsay, published in lavish large format, was admired by Lindsay himself 'as a facsimile perfect as reproduction can be' (from a 1938 letter to Andrew Watt), and '[it] remains one of the most tantalising collections of his work' (BLOOMFIELD, Lin. The complete etchings of Norman Lindsay, Odana 1998, p 65). Lindsay's popularity in the 1920s had risen meteorically, so that the very restricted print run of only 160 copies over two editions fell far short of the market's demands. The book sold out a month prior to publication, dissapointing many prominent collectors including Howard Hinton in New England. Only a handful of copies made it to Austraila, due to it selling out in London, as well as the fact that Australian customs held the two copies sent to Gill's Fine Art Society on the grounds that it was an immoral publication. Bloomfield notes that many copies have been broken to sell the plates: as early as 1938 the reproductions were selling for 21 shilling each, prompting her to observe that 'The Etchings of Norman Lindsay has become the rarest of any of Norman's books'. This statement is supported by a quote from George Mackaness, who wrote in 1965: '... within my knowledge only one copy of this has ever appeared in any Australian or British bookseller's catalogue or at auction'. A handful of copies have been sold since then, but The etchings of Norman Lindsay remains one of his most sumptuous and rare large scale publications.

        Autograph Letter, signed ("Aldous Huxley"), to Mr. Rimington, regarding photographic portraits of himself

      Florence, Italy, 1927. 1-1/2 pages in ink, on front and rear of single sheet. 1 vols. 4to. Fine. 1-1/2 pages in ink, on front and rear of single sheet. 1 vols. 4to. " ... the photograph is good ... made by the Steichen Studio" Apologizing for not being able to send a photograph of himself any better than the reproduction of one he has cut out of VANITY FAIR from the previous April, Huxley remarks: "I have been living away from my possessions, I could not get at any old portraits ... I'm sorry I can't do better. But the photograph is good - & if by the way, Doran's should want to use any picture for advertising purposes, I wish they'd use this, which was made by the Steichen Studio, New York, or else an excellent newspaper picture made by the Montauk Photograph Co ... . whose address is, I think, Canal Street, near the wharf."

        Candide, or All for the Best.

      New York: The Bennett Libraries Inc.,, 1927. Translated from the French. With 10 etchings. Exact reprint of the earliest English text printed in Holland by Joh. Enschedé en Zonen, founded in Haarlem Anno MDCCIII. Octavo. Publisher's deluxe red morocco, titles and decoration to spine gilt in compartments, covers blocked with elaborate gilt design, Tice nude tan calf onlay to front cover, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, full green and red morocco doublures decorated in gilt, green silk moiré endpapers, red silk page marker. Frontispiece and 9 other plates in two states (10 on japon, 10 on pannekoek paper) with captioned tissue-guards, an additional hand-coloured etching on japon, and an original signed drawing in coloured pencils by Tice. Titles printed in red and black. Spine lightly browned, slight rubbing to head of spine, a little offsetting to endpapers, page marker loose, partly unopened; an excellent copy. First Tice edition, one of three copies extra-illustrated with 11 hand-coloured etchings on japon, from a total edition of 1,000 copies, this copy also with a signed full page original sketch in coloured pencils by Tice on the half-title. This special limitation is presented as a manuscript slip, itself signed and hand-illustrated by Tice, laid down to the limitation page with the justification "One of three copies with Original Etchings". These original etchings thus present all ten original plates in two states, and add an additional illustration (facing p. 30) not given in the normal issue. The rest of the edition consists of 247 copies printed on Pannekoek paper, with colour plates and bound in less elaborately decorated full morocco to a design by Tice, and 750 copies in quarter cloth, with uncoloured plates. The only other copy of this special issue that we can trace at auction did not have the original hand-illustration by Tice present in this copy. Clara Tice (1888–1973) was a notorious New York bohemian artist, known as "the Queen of Greenwich Village". She was, according to the New York Times, the first woman in New York to bob her hair, in 1908. She began exhibiting her art from 1910 and in 1915 her fame skyrocketed when the Society for the Prevention of Vice attempted to confiscate her works at the bohemian restaurant Polly's. "Tice was apparently so highly regarded and so instantly recognizable as one of those 'queer artists' that her role in the first Greenwich Village Follies was simply to play herself. As 'Clara,' she stepped out onto the stage at the appointed time, outfitted in one of her typically bizarre bohemian ensembles, and conducted a 'quick chalk talk of nudes, bees and butterflies'" (Sawelsan-Gorse). Throughout the 1920s she illustrated for Vanity Fair amongst other magazines, and illustrated several books with her softly erotic drawings.

        [SHORT LIFE OF THE SOCIETY OF RUSSIAN SCULPTORS] Katalog 2-i vystavki skul'ptury Obshchestva russkikh skul'ptorov O.R.S. [i.e. The Catalogue of the Second Exhibition of Sculpture of the Society of Russian Sculptors O.R.S.]

      Moscow: Glavnauka, 1927. 16 pp. 17,2x13,3 cm. In original printed wrappers. Very good, two close tears of the spine and some spots near the spine. One of 1000 copies. Very rare. The catalogue for the 2nd exhibition (of only 4 held by the Society) which took place in 1927 provides names of the members and exhibitors with the addresses, for each work materials and titles are named. The catalogue is supplied with a list of the members of the Society with their positions and the address of the board. The Society (ORS) was founded in 1926 by former members of the Moscow Union of Artists and Sculptors. The impetus for the creation was the success of the sculptural department of the OBIS exhibition held in early 1925. The Society consisted of almost all famous Moscow sculptors, and their ranks was regularly replenished by the graduates of the sculpture faculty of Vkhutemas-Vkhutein. About 20 people were constantly members, 10-15 more sculptors were involved as exhibitors (candidates). Many participants were simultaneously members of other societies and unions: Korolev and Kepinov - OMH, Chaikov - «4 iskusstva», Shadr - AHRR; however, the ORS flourished tolerance for various trends in art (including the «left»). The meetings were held mainly in the workshop of Ryndziunskaia. Reports were read and discussed on the problems of sculpture like Ternovets made a report «On Contemporary Sculpture in the West», architect Konstantin Melnikov with a report «On Cooperation of Sculptors and Architects in Contemporary Construction». The ORS didn't have a program but they were determined to strengthened position of sculpture as an independent art genre and paid a lot of attention to raising the level of professionalism. The ORS held 4 exhibitions: in March-April 1926 (the State Historical Museum), in April 1927 (the Museum of the Revolution), in June 1929 and June 1931 (both - the Pushkin Museum), which were partly financed by Glavnauka. The exhibition committee was engaged in selection of works for the exhibitions, at different times it included Vatagin, Efimov, Zlatovratsky, Chaikov, Domogatsky, Mukhina. If the first exhibition declared a sculpture as an independent genre with such strong works like "Flame of Revolution" by Mukhina, the second was supposed to consolidate its positions. For the opening of the 2nd exhibition the monumental Chaikov's sculpture «The Tower of October» was set in front of the Museum of the Revolution. The exhibition was attended by 33 masters who showed 133 works, including: «The Walking Elephant» and «Seated Peacock» by Vatagin, «A.S. Pushkin» by Domogatsky, "The Wind» by Mukhina, «Sitting Woman (Stasya)» by Lebedeva, «Molodaika» by Ryndzyunskaya, «Oktyabrenok» by Sandomirskaya, «Bather», «Mostostroitel» by Chaikov. Since the late 1920s, the ORS was attacked by Proletkult theorists for lack of «ideological content» and adherence to «bourgeois» forms of «sculpture». In the spring of 1932 the Society was liquidated. Worldcat locates only one copy in Getty Research Institute.
