        Armenia and the Near East.

      London: George Allen & Unwin Ltd.,, 1928. Octavo. Original green cloth, title gilt to spine. Frontispiece and 16 other plates, folding map, headpiece, plans to the text. Spine a little tanned, light toning, else very good. First edition in English, originally published in Norwegian in the previous year. This copy inscribed on the front free endpaper: "To Philip Noël Baker with hearty thanks for all his untiring help from his grateful friend Fridtjof Nansen, London, 27th April 1928." Relates to Nansen's last, and perhaps most problematic humanitarian effort on behalf of the League of Nations, the attempt to save the refugee remnant of the Armenian people, and the establishment of a homeland for them within Soviet Armenia. The plan was never implemented, but the Nansen International Office for Refugees later settled some 10,000 in Erivan and 40,000 in Syria and Lebanon. The recipient, Philip Noël Baker, came from a Quaker family, his father was a Liberal MP and prominent peace campaigner. During World War I, Noël Baker served with the Friends' Ambulance Unit in France and his "political background and wartime experiences produced a strong commitment to international co-operation and disarmament. He was a member of the British delegation to the Paris peace conference and then worked with the League of Nations secretariat until 1922. From 1923 to 1924 he was secretary to the British delegation to the League of Nations, working closely with Edgar Cecil. Subsequently he was private secretary to Charles Alfred Cripps, the minister responsible for League of Nations affairs in the Labour government of 1924" (ODNB). It was Noël Baker who secured Nansen's original appointment as high commissioner with responsibility for post-war exchanges of prisoners of war, he "was eager to boost the League's reputation after the American Senate had rejected US membership. The League needed to be able to point to concrete results, which Noël-Baker believed Nansen would be able to deliver" (nobelprize.org). On hearing of his nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize in 1922, Nansen wrote to his friend, "If our work is worthy of it, you would have deserved it much more" Noël-Baker was himself awarded the Nobel peace prize in 1959 for his work towards disarmament. A superb association copy, from one Nobel laureate to another.

"Ancora e all'insegna della testimonianza, eterogenea ma fondamentale, della varietà di direzioni verso le quali il teatro moderno iniziava a muoversi, vi furono le rappresentazioni del Teatro della Pantomima Futurista diretto da Enrico Prampolini e l'inedita "Luci Veloci" di Marinetti, dramma in sei sintesi allestito dalla Compagnia Italianissima, due prime assolute in Italia; Marinetti stesso si affacciò sul proscenio per illustrare il suo 'teatro sintetico' fatto di forme, luci, colori che diventano esse stesse protagoniste e rendono superflua la presenza fisica e umana dell'attore [..]Le platee torinesi ebbero modo di deliziarsi ascoltando quell'orchestra jazz Jack Hylton and his Boys che andava esaurendo i teatri di tutta Europa, vero fenomeno del momento che suscitò persino nella sobria Torino episodi di fanatismo [..]La curiosità verso il  nuovo in musica che caratterizzava la gestione del Teatro di Torino portò a organizzare una serata che potremmo a buon diritto definire 'sperimentale' nel senso scientifico del termine: una serata in cui il giovane compositore Martenot offrì al pubblico dimostrazione pratica e spiegazione tecnica del suo 'istrumento radio-elettrico' mediante il quale l'esecutore poteva sfruttare musicalmente le onde prodotte da due oscillatori ad alta frequenza. E' l'atto di nascita di quelle che saranno poi conosciute come onde Martenot"(da"ll Teatro di Torino di Riccardo Gualino (1925-1930)" di Baldi, Betta, Trinchero).

By this graphic cycle artist made a breakthrough in Eastern European art finding a new way of graphical expression, but at the same time was strongly criticized by society. Sigismunds Vidbergs (1890-1970) the most notable representative of Art Deco graphic art, one of the most original Latvian artists of the 20th century whose creative legacy is characterised by its versatility. He has created in the field of easel and applied graphics, painting on porcelain, book and magazine illustrations and commercial drawings. In his works, technique of drawing with Indian ink dominates. The artist addressed a wide range of subjects: historical and contemporary motifs, urban and rural life, religious scenes, portraits, studies of architecture and nature. However, Vidbergs is best known in the general panorama of Latvian art for his elegant interpretations of erotic motifs, retaining a classical sense of measure even when addressing very risqué themes.

        Gendai Shogyo Bijutsu Zenshu - The Complete Commercial Artist].

      - Tokyo, Ars 1928-30 (Showa 3 - 5). 24 volumes quarto, publisher's wrappers & printed card slipcases. Thousands of illustrations, most colour. Some flaws and signs of use - nothing serious - chipping of spines; wear and tear to the card boxes; a very acceptable set. With the prospectus or advertisement for the series which unfolds to 39x54cm with details on one side and a colour collage on the other and publisher's announcements loosely inserted in several volumes. A complete set of the Shogyo Bijutsu, one of the great monuments of Japanese modernism. Largely the work of Masuji Hamada - credited with the invention of design as a profession in Japan - it is an encyclopaedic gathering of all that is new and exciting in Russia, Europe, Britain and America from art nouveau to bauhaus and constructivism, with futurism, expressionism, dada and everything else along the way lavishly mixed with Japanese responses to, and digestion of, these western ideas. Any number of exciting artists and designers contributed. Each volume is devoted to a topic or related topics and commercial design here means more than it does to us. So as well as volumes on posters, advertisements, billboards, typography, and similar graphic arts (like bookbindings, magazine, brochure and catalogue covers, packaging, labels, trademarks and placards), there are volumes devoted to the architecture of the shop from the mightiest department store to the most chic Parisian shop window and the display within. Exterior and interior design, showcases and fittings - shops, restaurants, cinemas, even a barber shop or beauty parlour is laid out. One volume is devoted to lighting: neon lights, the lighting of commercial spaces and illuminated signs. Another volume is devoted to kiosks, pavilions and floats, festive decoration, facades, gateways and entrances, while the following volume continues into international exhibitions. Volume 22 is devoted to traditional Japanese shop signs and banners, a treat in itself, while volume 14 explores photography and humour in graphic art - so German photo-montage and French caricature share a volume.

        The Heroycall Epistles of the Learned Poet Publius Ovidius Naso. Translated into English verse by George Turberville. With ten full-page illustrations by Hester Sainsbury. Edited with an introduction and glossary by Frederick Boas.

      London:: Cresset Press, 1928., 1928. 4to. xxiv, 349 pp. 10 illustrations by Hester Sainsbury, t.e.g. Green tinted vellum over boards, gilt-stamped black leather spine label; slightly rubbed, front pastedown off-setting (bookplate removed). Interior fine. LIMITED EDITION, being one of the special issues on better paper limited to 30 copies -- this is number V of XXX copies on hand-made paper, of a total 380 copies. One of the first books of the press. Founded by Dennis Cohen the Cresset Press, like the American Limited Editions Club, commissioned books illustrated with the finest wood-engravers of their time. // Turberville's translation of the Heroides, The Heroycall Epistles..., was the standard English edition for seventy years, with four different printings in his lifetime, 1567, 1569, 1570, 1600. ...Its prosody, not always regularly iambic or containable in the pentameter line, displeases some contemporary readers. Yet Turberville's minute attention to sound suggests that his version was meant to be read aloud, its speakers heard as if they were delivering soliloquies in his underrated fourteeners, poulter's measure, and blank verse" (Stapleton, p. 82). // Turberville's The Heroycall Epistles... (first published 1567) "constitutes at least one example of sixteenth-century Ovidian reception. It is an early modern transvestite version of l'écriture feminine, one that Michael Drayton utilized in his much later imitation of the same text, Englands heroicall epictles (1597)" (Stapleton, p. 37). // Turberville (c. 1540-1610) served as secretary to Thomas Randolph, Queen Elizabeth's ambassador to Ivan the Terrible. // Hester Margaret Sainsbury (1890-1967) "was an artist, poet, playwright, and an innovative dramaturge who combined dance and rhythmic verse in an excitingly Modernist style. Hester Sainsbury was the second wife of Frederick Etchells, the Vorticist painter, architect, and publisher, and many of her published prints (wood engravings and copper engravings) were made for fine press books published by the Haslewood Press, run by Etchells and Hugh MacDonald." - Idbury Prints. // Stapleton, Michael L. Spenser's Ovidian Poetics. Newark, DE: University of Delaware Press, 2009.
