        Autograph Letter Signed [to Arthur St. John Adcock]

      Ayot Street, Lawrence, Hertfordshire, England: George Bernard Shaw, 1928. First edition. [No Binding.]. Near Fine. An Autograph Letter Signed from George Bernard Shaw to Arthur St. John Adcock, written on Shaw's headed card measuring approximately 4 1/2 inches by 3 1/2 inches, addressed and written in Shaw's hand, such letter being dated November 26, 1928 and reading as follows: "I think on the whole I won't sign the / Pugh letter, not that I question his eligibility, // but because I do not believe that my signature / would increase the chances of a successful / result under existing circumstances. // G. B. S." George Bernard Shaw won the 1925 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his work which is marked by both idealism and humanity, its stimulating satire often being infused with a singular poetic beauty". He also won an Oscar, making him the only person ever to have won both Awards. [Not wanting public honors, Shaw determined to decline the Nobel Prize, but changed his mind and accepted it at the urging of his wife who considered it a tribute to Ireland. Shaw did, however, reject the accompanying monetary prize and requested that it be used to translate playwright August Strindberg's works from Swedish to English.] Arthur St. John Adcock, the English novelist and Poet, is know for his having discovered the Welsh Poet and writer William H. Davies who went from being a hobo/tramp to noted Poet. Davies, having self-published his first book of Poetry, "The Soul's Destroyer" (1905), marketed it by sending copies to person's listed in "Who's Who" and asking them to send payment in return. It was thus that a copy came to Arthur St. John Adcock, then an editor at the Daily Mail, who then met with Davies whose literary career then began. Arthur St. John Adcock later became the editor of The Bookman. We strongly suspect the "Pugh" who is the subject of Shaw's letter to be the writer's and recipient's fellow author, Edwin Pugh. The note is in Near Fine condition. An excellent GEORGE BERNARD SHAW AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED, ON SHAW'S HEADED CARD, AND HAVING AN EXCELLENT LITERARY ASSOCIATION.

        S/W Original Fotographie "Fernsprecher". [Hochformat, ca. 22,9 x 15,2 cm].

      Frankfurt, 1928 - Frankfurt, 1928. Originalabzug, mit eighd. Beschriftung zum Stempel und Datierung auf der Rückseite, sowie dem Adress-Stempel Dexels. Von dritter Hand bzw. anderer Tinte die Beschriftung "Dr. Dexel Jena - Normplakat-Fernsprechsäule mit Transparenten (oben)". - Rückseite etw. angestaubt. - Dexel (1890 - 1973) schuf in den zwanziger Jahren in Jena als einer der ersten Gaslaternen zu Werbezwecken. Formal entwickelte Dexel diese "dreidimensionale(n), beleuchtete(n) Plakate" aus seiner Malerei und Gebrauchsgrafik. 1926 ging Walter Dexel als freiberuflicher Berater für Reklamegestaltung nach Frankfurt am Main. Hauptziel einer von ihm für Frankfurt entworfenen Reklameordnung war die Vereinheitlichung der Fassaden, ein Gleichklang zwischen Reklame und Architektur. In Frankfurt entwarf Dexel 1927/28 außer zahlreichen Transparenten und Reklameuhren auch größere Lichtreklamegestaltungen an Häuserfronten und auf Hausdächern. Hinzu kamen beleuchtete Telefonzellen und Leuchtsäulen für Normaluhren. Dabei gelang es Dexel, seine "bildimmanente Syntax" aus den Bereichen der Sammler- und Museumskunst in die Funktionsbereiche des urbanen Alltags zu übertragen. Dexels Verständnis von (guter) Werbung war dabei ein durchaus eingeschränktes, für ihn fielen "Typografie" und "Reklame" so gut wie zusammen. Insofern war Reklame für ihn "Gebrauchskunst" ohne alles genialische Künstlertum. (Zitat) Deutsch

        [Op. 120]. Autograph musical manuscript of Cloches sonnaient with a signed inscription in Cyrillic to the soprano Nina Pavlovna Koshetz "for the 15th anniversary of her glorious activities" dated Paris 1927 to title; also signed and titled in French

      [i] (autograph title), 4 pp. autograph musical manuscript, [i] (blank) pp. Folio. Notated in ink on 20-stave musical manuscript paper. With autograph text in Russian. Stamps of the Société dated October 25, 1928 to title and within manuscript. Signed twice on title, at head of first page of music, and dated 1926 at conclusion. With corrections and deletions in ink in the composer's hand and additional performance markings in pencil, presumably in the hand of the dedicatee. Slightly worn, soiled and creased; smudging to several notes. . The present manuscript is Grechaninov's arrangement of a popular Russian song, Zvonikli zvony (Les cloches de Novgorod), from his 2 Russian Folk Songs, opus 120 (the second song being Tout le long de la plaine). Gretchaninov: My Life. Catalogue of Works, p. 195 (with a composition date of 1929, contrary to the dating of this manuscript). "After the Revolution, Grechaninov lost his pension, and felt uneasy in Soviet Russia; so he readily took an opportunity to visit western Europe (notably London and Prague), on the invitation of a rich American, in 1922, and after further visits he settled in Paris in 1925, composing much and making a living as a pianist. In 1939 he went to America, which he had often visited since 1929; he settled in New York the following year and took American citizenship in 1946. He was present at a 90th birthday concert held in his honour in New York Town Hall..." "Grechaninov’s works cover many different genres. His style is mainly decadent, influenced more by Tchaikovsky, Borodin, Rimsky-Korsakov and Ippolitov-Ivanov than Musorgsky. Some of his early songs have won popularity for their lyrical expressive power..." Inna Barsova and Gerald Abraham in Grove online Koshetz (1894-1965), a noted Ukrainian-born American soprano, was the daughter of Pavel Koshitz, a leading tenor at the Bol'shoy. She made her début as Tatyana in Yevgeny Onegin with the Zimin Private Opera company in 1913, leaving Russia in 1920 to join the Chicago Opera Association. She spent the best part of the later 1920s in France, performing at the Opéra in 1925 and at the Trocadéro in 1927 in the first Paris production of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Sadko. "Her few recordings, prized by collectors, show a clear, steady voice excitingly combined with an imaginative, emotionally charged style." J.B. Steane in Grove online Gretchaninov speaks of concertizing with Koshetz in his memoirs: "My first concert with Nina Koshetz took place in Carnegie Hall on January 17, 1929. On March 25 of the same year, I conducted, also in Carnegie Hall, my Domestic Liturgy. Both concerts were tremendously successful." Gretchaninov: My Life, pp. 148-149.

      1928. Arthur Rackham Awakens Sleepy Hollow[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. IRVING, Washington. The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. Philadelphia: David McKay Company, [1928].Limited to 250 numbered copies for England and 125 copies for the United States. This un-numbered and unsigned copy being one of the 125 for the US. Quarto (10 3/16 x 8 inches; 262 x 203 mm.). 102, [1], [1, blank] pp. Eight mounted color plates and thirty drawings in black and white. Publisher's vellum boards gilt lettered and ornamented, with gilt vignette. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. A fine copy, partially uncut.By 1928, the traditional Rackham book - freely and lavishly illustrated, and lushly produced - was, culturally no longer in fashion nor financially feasible. Artistically, Rackham's work was being overshadowed by a younger generation. Publisher George Harrap stepped in, took up the challenge, and, through production economies, published a new kind of Rackham book. But if the volumes were not as spectacular as in the past, the artwork was no less impressive.Latimore and Haskell, pp. 63-64. Riall, pp. 164-165.

        La Divina Commedia or the Divine Vision of Dante Alighieri in Italian & English

      London: Nonesuch Press, 1928. Folio, with 42 plates (many double-page), spine moderately sunned, binding a little thumbed; very good overall in original gilt decorated orange Japon vellum boards. A magnificent edition of the Divine Comedy illustrated with 42 beautifully printed plates from the original sketches by Sandro Botticelli. This is undoubtedly one of the finest books produced by the Nonesuch Press in their long and fruitful history. Botticelli's drawings are delicate and understated, and this is the first occasion they have been married with Dante's text in the form of a printed book. The plates are remarkably for their subtlety and faith to the original artworks, and are were specially produced by French artisan printmaker Daniel Jacomet, who is now renowned for his pochoir stencil work for Picasso and other eminent artists of the era. The Divine Comedy is printed in the original vernacular Italian alongside the cherished English language translation of Henry Francis Cary. In sympathy with Botticelli's fifteenth-century illustration, the type has been set in blado italic reminiscent of incunabula of the era. Edition limited to 1475 numbered copies.

      . Schwarze Kreide und Pinsel in Grau, auf Bütten, verso numeriert "N: 501". 11,2:22 cm. - Durchgehend etwas braunfleckig, sonst tadellos. Provenienz: Sammlung Prinz W. Argoutinsky-Dolgoroukoff, Paris, Lugt Suppl. 2602 d; versteigert in Berlin 8.11.1928, Nr. 523; Sammlung Adolf Gruis, Berlin, nicht bei Lugt. Literatur: Beck Z 705.. Die produktivste Zeit van Goyens als Landschaftszeichner fällt in die Jahre 1651-1653. Die hier vorgestellte Zeichnung ist als autonomes Kunstwerk entstanden, auch wenn sie nicht signiert ist. Die Kreidelinien werden durch den unterschiedlich stark ausgeübten Druck modelliert und die Zeichnung mit Tuschpinsel laviert. Hierdurch erreicht der Künstler eine mehr malerische als graphische Wirkung. Das Format des Blattes entspricht mehr oder weniger der Standardgröße der bildmäßig ausgeführten Zeichnungen van Goyens. Jan van Goyen ist einer der bedeutendsten holländischen Landschaftsmaler des 17. Jahrhunderts. Nach Studien bei fünf verschiedenen Meistern (um 1606-um 1610) bildete er sich autodidaktisch weiter. Um 1615 ging er für etwa ein Jahr nach Frankreich und arbeitete danach einige Zeit selbständig in Leiden. Auf seine drängenden Bitten hin ermöglichte ihm sein Vater ein weiteres Studienjahr in Haarlem bei Esaias van de Velde (um 1591-1630). Diese Zeit hinterließ den nachhaltigsten Eindruck und machte sich in van Goyens Werk deutlich bemerkbar. Danach kehrte er zunächst nach Leiden zurück, zog jedoch 1632 nach Den Haag, wo er verstarb. Mit den Jahren wurde van Goyen zu einem bedeutenden Naturschilderer, der die Farbstimmung jeder Tages- und Jahreszeit hervorragend einzufangen wußte. Ganz im Gegensatz zu den Gemälden, die meist nicht vor der Natur entstanden, hat der Künstler um so "fleißiger vor der Natur gezeichnet. Tausende, z.T. aus aufgelösten Skizzenbüchern stammende, meist mit schwarzer Kreide gezeichnete Studien, legen davon Zeugnis ab. Wie die Gemälde, kennzeichnet sie ein flotter, loser Strich." (zitiert aus: Thieme/Becker, Bd. XIV, S. 462).

New York: Houghton Mifflin, 1928. First edition illustrated by Rackham, published only in America. Octavo (8 1/4 x 5 7/8 in; 209 x 150 mm). [8]. 80, [1], [3, blank] pp. Title page, frontispiece and two full page illustrations in rose and greenish-blue, twenty-six black and white drawings. Original tan, pictorially stamped, cloth. A remarkably fresh, clean, and exceptionally fine copy in the original pictorial dust jacket."The text is printed on a poor and brittle paper, so it is a difficult title to find in good condition" (Riall)."There is no more famous illustrator of children's books in the entire world than Arthur Rackham. Indeed, there are many people who make a point of buying every Rackham book regardless of subject, merely for the sake of the pictures. For, unlike that of many illustrators, Mr. Rackham's work appeals equally to the child and the adult, delighting the young reader by its whimsical humor and multitude of perfectly executed details, and adults by its beauty and artistry.In 'The Lonesomest Doll' Mr. Rackham has found an unusually appealing theme, and he has contributed a series of thirty-one of his unique illustrations (four in color), making a volume that should take its place as one of the finest gift books of the year. Miss Brown's charming story of the proud little queen and her beautiful lonesome doll has held a place for many years among the favorite books of the younger readers, and this new and beautiful edition should make it many new friends." (Front flap of dust jacket).Latimore and Haskell p. 63. Hudson p. 171. Riall p. 163.

        RED HAIR (1928)

      USA 1928 - Vintage original 14 x 22" (35 x 56 cm.) window card, USA. Clara Bow, Lane Chandler, William Austin, Jacqueline Gadsden, Lawrence Grant, dir: Clarence G. Badger; Paramount. A brilliant, sassy and flirtatious portrait, and so iconic of the red-headed star "It" girl. So popular had Clara Bow become as a result of her star vehicle "It" that celebrated writer Elinor Glyn's work was once again used as the basis for this screenplay: five writers adapted her book "The Vicissitudes of Evangeline". The story concerned a free-spirited girl (a manicurist) who is courted by three middle-aged men, each seeing her in a different light. They also happen to be the guardian of a young man to whom she is attracted to. Initially, Gary Cooper was cast in the role played by Lane Chandler (who would make his mark in 1950s and 60s television Westerns). As with many of Clara Bow's films, though a concentrated effort has been made to locate this and others, it is considered lost except for a recently-found short clip. Paper-backed, there has been some skillful touch-up mostly to white background, to address what were once some stains and a few tears, poster now looks really nice, VERY GOOD-FINE.

        Autograph musical manuscript of Putyi tvoi, Gospodi, skaji mne [Thy Ways, O Lord, Tell Me], a vocal work for tenor solo, mixed chorus and piano. In score

      10 pp. In E, 2/2 time, marked "Lento" at head. Folio (358 x 265 mm.). Unbound. Notated in ink on 18-stave Russian music manuscript paper. With numerous autograph corrections and amendations including pencil markings of an editorial nature. The printer's copy, presumably used in preparation of the published edition. With pencilled annotation to upper left corner of title indicating receipt of the manuscript (presumably by the publisher) on October 13, 1928. Slightly worn and soiled. . We have not located any record of the present work in Slonimsky. "In two fields of Russian music Grechaninov has a special place: children’s music and liturgical works. Even his first liturgy op.13 is worth attention; and in the op.19 choruses he used a new style, favoured by Katal sky and others, recognizable by its modal harmonization of old Russian melodies. This initially aroused strong opposition from conservative church musicians. In the popular second liturgy Grechaninov solved the problem of the Credo by giving the text to a solo alto, who declaims it rhythmically while the choir sings the word ‘Veruyu’ (‘I believe’) in simple harmony. Grechaninov’s later use of instruments in para-liturgical works, his composition of a Roman Catholic Mass and motets (with organ), and his writing of a Missa oecumenica – a Latin mass for solo voices, chorus, organ and orchestra on Orthodox, Gregorian and Hebrew liturgical melodies – all testify to his liberal religious outlook."
