      Pag. OBrosch. Umfasst 40 Hefte "Die Kunstauktion" und 290 Hefte "Weltkunst". - Gbrsp., einige wenige Seiten durch Feuchtigkeit zusammengeklatscht. - 1927 gründete der Kunstkritiker Walter Bondy das Berliner Wochenblatt Die Kunstauktion, die am 28. September 1930 durch J. I. von Saxe in Weltkunst umbenannt wurde. Thema war der deutsche, aber auch internationale Kunstmarkt, den auch das regelmäßige englische Supplement abdeckte. 1934 übernahm Carl August Breuer die Leitung der Weltkunst. Er verlegt als Folge der durch die Nationalsozialisten eingeführten Gleichschaltung des Kunst & Antiquitätenhandels sowie der verwandten Branchen seinen Wohnsitz nach Paris, wo er mit seinen Freunden den Verlag Edition Art et Technique gründete und die Zeitschrift Beaux Arts du Monde herausgab. Thema der Zeitschrift ist die Bildende Kunst von der Antike bis zu den Zeitgenossen. Die Beiträge zu Kunstmessen, Ausstellungen und Auktionen sowie Hintergrundberichte beschäftigen sich Kunst, Künstler und Antiquitäten. Die Hefte der 30er Jahre sind von besonderem Interesse, um den damaligen Kunstmarkt überblicken. (Zitat) - Aufgrund der zahlreichen Galerie- und Auktionsberichte ist diese Sequenz der "Weltkunst" ein absolutes Referenzwerk für die Provienzforschung. Mit zahlreichen Abbildungen und Berichten zur zeitgenössischen Kunst von maßgeblichen Autoren wie Florent Fels, E. v. Sydow, Yukio Yashiro, Oskar Schlemmer, W. Waetzold, M.

        Strande, oft ghedichte van de schelpen, kinckhornen, ende andere wonderlicke zee-schepselen, tot lof van den schepper aller dinghen.Amsterdam, Dirck Pietersz. Pers, 1614. 4to. With woodcut device on title-page with the motto "Templum Dei estis vos". Gold-tooled brown/green (goatskin) morocco (1914), gold-tooled spine, triple gold fillets on boards and double on board edges, richly gold-tooled turn-ins, gilt edges; bound by the leading Brussels bookbinder Charles de Samblanx.

      - Knuttel, "Een vergeten dichter" in: De gids XCI (1927), pp. 292-299; STCN (5 copies); for the binder: H. Dubois d’Enghien, La reliure en Belgique au 19e siècle, pp. 147-152. Very rare second edition of a pioneering Dutch renaissance poem on shells, comparable to Huygens's much later and much better known Hofwijck (1653). "If we compare both poets, Huygens has more to say and has a lot more twists than the repetitive Philibert, but the latter is nevertheless more poetic. Van Borssele sees with a painter's eye, speaks more beauty, is more courageous and less forced in his images and epithets, and gives more warmth to his verse" (Knuttel). Van Borsselen based his poems on the collection of shells of his brother-in-law, Cornelis Van Blijenburgh (1545-1618), but it's much more than just a dry enumeration and description. The poem was probably written before 1600 and first published in 1611. Both editions are equally rare. The work is charmingly bound by the leading Brussels bookbinder Charles de Samblanx (1855-1943)."Son œuvre, extrêmement abondant et varié, offrait dans tous les genres des spécimens remarquables. Il avait contribué, pour une largo part, à maintenir dans notre pays l'art de la reliure au niveau élevé où l'avaient porté nos bons relieurs des périodes romantique et Second Empire" (Dubois d'Enghien).With a library stamp. The bookblock is trimmed closely to the letterpress marginal notes, a few times touching a few letters, some minor foxing along the extremities and a restored tear in the last leaf, otherwise in good condition. The binding fine, with only the corners of the boards slightly rubbed.

A solid, nice, very presentable copy. SCARCE and WONDERFUL, especially so with the SIGNATURE and INSCRIPTION of EVA JESSYE. About EVA JESSYE (from Wikipedia): ******Eva Jessye was a pioneer in the world of African American music and is recognized as the First Black Woman To Receive International Distinction As A Choral Conductor. She was born in Coffeyville, Kansas on January 20, 1895. Soon she developed a love of traditional Negro spirituals. At the age of thirteen, she attended Western University in Kansas City, Kansas where she studied poetry and oratory. In addition to singing in Western's concert choir, she gained experience coaching several of the University's male and female choral groups. Jessye moved to New York in 1926. There she conducted and directed a spirituals, jazz, and light opera choir called the Dixie Jubilee Singers. Under her direction, the group, later named the Eva Jessye Choir, enjoyed a successful career which lasted more than thirty years. She collaborated in productions of groundbreaking works, directing her choir and working with Virgil Thomson and Gertrude Stein on Four Saints in Three Acts (1933), and serving as musical director with George Gershwin on his innovative opera Porgy and Bess (1935). Jessye and her choir toured with Porgy and Bess, earning her international acclaim. In 1963 the Eva Jessye Choir was the official choral group for the Martin Luther King March on Washington. In addition to conducting, Jessye also published a book titled MY SPIRITUALS (1927), inspired by the folk music of her childhood. Her acting credits include such onstage roles as Strawberry Woman in Porgy and Bess, and Queenie in Showboat. She was seen in films including Black Like Me (1964) and Slaves (1969). In addition to honorary doctorates from several major universities, Jessye was awarded a Doctor of Determination Certificate from the University of Michigan's Department of African American Studies in 1976. Kansas governor Robert Bennett declared October 1, 1978 EVA JESSYE DAY and in 1982 she was named the KANSAS AMBASSADOR FOR THE ARTS by Governor John Carlin.****** Good .

        THE WORLD'S HEAVY WEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP OFFICIAL SOUVENIR

      The Fred J. Ringley Company, Chicago 1927 - The official souvenir program for the Gene Tunney-Jack Dempsey fight at Soldiers' Field, Chicago, Septermber 22, 1927. Light longitudinal crease, top front corner with two folds. Tiny closed chip bottom edge. Pencil markings on the score card, comments about preliminary bouts, the owner of the card gave Tunney 7 of the 10 rounds. Adverts throughout, short articles on the Field Museum, Art Institute, State Athletic Commission, George Getz (promoter of the fight). This fight was a rematch of the fight a year previously, won by Tunney by a ten round unanimous decision. This fight will be remembered at "The Long Count Fight", where the referee did not start counting on the downed Tunney because Dempsey did not go to a neutral corner. The fight was ultimately won by Tunney in a unanimous decision. It was Dempsey's last career fight, and Tunney's penultimate fight. A fine piece of boxing ephemera, this program was actually at the fight!!! Size: Quarto [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Revolt in the Desert.

      London: Jonathan Cape,, 1927. Quarto. Original brown quarter pigskin, title gilt to spine, tan buckram sides, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Coloured portrait frontispiece, 10 coloured plates, 8 black and white plates, folding map at rear. A little rubbing to edges; an excellent copy. First edition, large paper issue, number 127 of 315 numbered copies, of which 300 were for sale. The costs for production of the 1926 Seven Pillars of Wisdom had ballooned to such an extent that Lawrence was contemplating selling either his library or some of his property to clear the debt. Eventually he settled on the publication of an abridgement, undertaken in 1926 by Lawrence himself with the help of some of his fellow servicemen, an earlier attempt by Edward Garnett having been set aside. Published in March 1927 in Great Britain and America, in both limited and general issues, three impressions were soon sold out and two more quickly added. The profits from this publication made the fortunes of the Cape publishing house. Laid-in is a promotional bookseller's flyer.

        Vingt-Cinq Costumes pour le Théâtre

      Paris: Bloch and Meynial, 1927. Limited First Edition. Heavy Wrappers. . Very Good Plus/Good. No. 185 of 275 copies. 4to. 32 by 24 cm. 25 tipped-in pochoir costume plates by Barbier. Lettered tissue guards. Colas 218. The artwork is all dated to the early post-World War One period, into the early 1920s. Captured here is the fantasy spun by the costuming, so at odds with the parsimonious theatrical zeitgeist of the present when it seems so much of classic theater and opera is willfully updated to the unglamorous present day. Not that the costumes here are entirely unrelated to the then contemporary styles -- one can discern the cross-fertilization of costuming with fashion effortlessly, though, through Barbier's fluent presentation. Barbier focuses on the escapist element of theater, and his renderings usher us on this excursion. The plays represented include works by Rostand and Hugo, among others. Original pictorial wrappers. Closed tear of joints by extremities, with the longer tear at the base (about 6 cm in length). Glassine dust jacket mostly intact, but with several tears and chips, especially by the lower portion of the rear cover, and then by the spine extremities and neighboring joints. Frontis portrait of Barbier has flattened cornered crease. Otherwise, the plates, most importantly, are very clean and bright.

        Archive of Manuscript Letters and Papers of Distinguished Engineer George Remington of Warkworth, Pertaining to Engineering Works.

      England, 1827-1898., 1927. Archive of manuscript letters and papers of distinguished engineer George Remington of Warkworth, comprising mainly correspondence received by him, and his own retained draft letters to others, the lot pertaining to engineering works, Features one signed letter from Scottish engineer James Leslie, and one from Sir Richard Tufton, Earl of Thanet. Letters and documents range in size and form. Some age-toning and chips at extremities, otherwise overall in very good condition. George Remington was an accomplished civil engineer of Warkworth, Northumberland, best remembered for his London and Manchester Railway Company pioneering under which he pioneered the 'independent' line often called Remington's Line, and also for his early proposals for an English Channel Rail Tunnel. In the 1830s and 1840s he partnered with engineer John Rennie on several important projects, some of which include, in 1837 making a ground survey for a ship canal to render Chester an efficient port for large vessels, in the 1840s inspections and planning for a railway tunnel across the English Channel, for other railway projects such as the Sheffield and Staffordshire Railway, and the Derbyshire, Staffordshire and Worcestershire Junction Railway, and for harbour developments and improvements. By the 1860s his son began working at his firm, George Remington and Son. His contemporaries called him "the first in the field on the direct and independent principle [of railway building]" although he also contributed greatly in harbour projects, tramways, and in pioneering concepts for the Channel Tunnel. The present lot of correspondence, accompanied by one printed proposal and a few news announcements, reveals important considerations in engineering and construction of urban infrastructure, much of which continue to resonate today, including early environmental issues, defenses against nature's untamable forces, and even politics. British engineer George Remington spearheaded several notable communications works.. Manuscript.

        Photograph album with views of Canberra, circa 1927

      Art Deco style large quarto album, original brown cloth boards, upper board with decorative device and title Photographsin gilt, contemporary manuscript paper title label to spine New Zealand, s.s. Taiping, Canberra, containing [97] window-mounted (i.e. removable) sepia carbon print photographs on card, in uniform format 120 x 165 mm, including views of Canberra (10), New Zealand (61), Thursday Island and North Queensland (13), Melbourne (1), Sydney (1), Ballarat (3), Goolwa (1), Manila (6), Japan (1); paper labels with the photographer's own manuscript captions are pasted onto the album leaves beneath each image; the album is exceptionally well preserved, all the carbon prints being in flawless condition and with excellent tonal range, the album leaves completely free from foxing. Although this is an album of private travel photographs, the unidentified photographer was quite possibly a professional. The images were taken using an extremely high quality camera: the focus, exposure, and composition display a consistently accomplished level of technical skill and a strong artistic sense, and the expensive carbon print medium - one employed with spectacular results by pictorialist photographers in the early twentieth century - produces beautiful soft tones and permanent, undegraded prints. The ten photographs of Canberra include views of Ainslie Church; the headstone of Sarah and George Webb in the Ainslie Churchyard with its "prophecy" about a future city; seven views of or from Parliament House; and a view of the site for the proposed "theatre and cathedral".

        Choice Autograph letter signed by Henrietta Szold to Elisha Friedman regarding the Zionist Organization of America and its early efforts to secure life members

      New York, NY: , July 28, 1927. New York, NY, July 28, 1927. 5.5X9. "Autograph letter signed ""Henrietta Szold"", one page, 5½"" x 9"", on stationary of the Hotel Alexandria, July 28, 1927, New York, NY, addressed to Elisha Friedman.Szold writes: ""Am I wrong in assuming that you expressed at least individual approval of the plan of discharging the deficit of the Zionist Organization of America as a first step towards making it an effective instrument for Palestinian work, when I spoke to you at the Physician's Dinner? At all events, I venture to ask whether you will help us do what we have undertaken by becoming a life member of the Organization? The plan is to secure two thousand such life members at $100 each. That will cover the deposit of $156,000 and give us a small reserve out of the interest on which we can supplement our normal revenues. Will you help?…"" A steadfast and loyal Zionist, Friedman was a member of the American Economic Committee for Palestine, on the Board of the American Friends of the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and on the Finance Committee of the Palestine Endowment Funds and the Hadassah Medical Organization. Fine."
