         [Archive]: Correspondence and Photographs to a Metallurgical Engineer 1913-1929

      Kennecott, Alaska/Canaan, Connecticut/Cisco, Utah, 1929. Near Fine. A collection of 53 letters from 1913 to 1929 written to Lawrence Eddy, a metallurgist from Connecticut, while he was working at various mining sites. These letters are written by family members, friends, and his fiancee and later wife, Doane Loveland Peirce. All letters are near fine, some envelopes have small chips else very good, accompanied by 53 sepia and black and white gelatin silver photographs ranging in size between 3.5" x 2.5" and 5.5" x 3". The photographs are fine.Eddy was born March 18th, 1892 in Canaan, Connecticut where he lived for most of his life before moving to Alaska to pursue a carrier as a Metallurgical Engineer. He was the Mill Superintendent of the Kennecott Copper Corporation's plant in Kennecott, Alaska before going back home in 1919 to be the general superintendent of the Charcoal Iron Furnaces and Chemical Plant of the Barnum Richardson Company in Canaan. Several of the photos, apparently taken by Eddy, are of the mill in Alaska showing the dams, cranes, and workers. One photo shows him smiling with a group of men after a long day on the job. During this time, he received love letters from Peirce; "dearest if you were only here you'd be hugged and kissed til I am afraid you couldn't breathe." Signing off as his "little girl" or "Bee Wee" each letter expresses how much Peirce hated to be without him, "I have decided that is the best and only sensible way to get along, as long as you're not here, so I intend to think of you as little as possible from now on." In 1918, Eddy was a part of the World War I draft, "if you should have to go you'd have to marry me first, so I could go down and take care of you if you get shooted," a light-hearted message at the end of one of Peirce's letters. After the war, he returned home to Connecticut and married Peirce. Eddy's parents and his brother, Allerton Eddy, also wrote to him inquiring after his activities and reporting their own travels. The letters from his parents mostly describe their travels to Los Angeles and Honolulu, apologizing to him about being unable to visit, "we appreciate what you and Doane have written about stopping to visit you, but it doesn't seem meritable this time - much as we want to see you all." The letters from his brother Allerton are sent from his residence in Utah and are written to Eddy's parents; and then presumably they were then forwarded on to Lawrence Eddy. "Having just scraped the mud out of my hair, and had a bath and shave, and put on my new shirt, I can now write a letter without getting finger prints all over the paper." Allerton then proceeds to describe his work day on the oil rigs in Cisco (which in the last few decades has become an abandoned town). While the majority of the letters are affectionately written from family members, there are a few unpleasant letters from friends. One letter from an "Elizabeth," is of particular interest, stating her views on the war from a feminist viewpoint, "I was not surprised that you feel as you do about it, I haven't found a boy yet that agreed with me. It is the women and older men that I have talked to who think that war is too big a price to pay for almost anything... As for its being, 'born in a man to fight', as you say, perhaps that is so, but most people are trying to control the lower instincts that characterized the cave men, and are trying to go on and up to a higher kind of life." Another from an old friend, "Lawrence, if you care anything about our friendship of long standing, and wish to keep it alive at all, for goodness sake write me about something...For old friendship's sake be as honest with me as I have been with you and believe me as always." Apparently Eddy was a student of his profession, publishing an article on "Ammonia Leaching of Copper Ores," that was published in the 107th volume of The Engineering and Mining Journal in 1919. A substantial correspondence to a working metallurgist, and an interesting look back on the life of man and his strong connection with his family during the decades of 1910-1930.

         La Femme 100 Têtes. Avis au Lecteur par André Breton.

      Paris Editions de Carrefour 1929 - 4to (25 x 20 cm). No 371 of 900 limited edition copies. Title, justification, [4]pp. introduction by Andre Bréton, 147 plates after Max Ernst. Original green wrappers, cream wove endpapers, green morocco by D. H. Mercher dated 1991 (binder's mark and date) with collage playing card design inlaid on covers in plexiglass, matching green morocco chemise with woven paper covers, spine gilt lettered, housed in cream coloured slipcase. La Femme 100 Têtes was the first of three collage-novels by Max Ernst. The artist forges a universe of mystery, full of all the possibilities of the surreal, by culling the bourgeois interiors that pepper XIX century engravings and instead assembling images from several different illustrated works. This is a seminal and quintessential XX century work of art. The book was originally sold unbound, and this particular copy has been bound by the talented Daniel Henri Mercher, whose father Henri (1912-76) was also an innovative and creative binder who invented a method of mounting covers that allowed him to use any type of material that could be sanded, carved or polished. His particular favourite was plexiglass, as seen in this superb example. Dictionary of French bookbinders. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         THE WELL OF LONELINESS

      Covici-Friede, New York 1929 - The Victory Edition consisting of two large octavo volumes (6-1/4" x 9-3/4") bound in silver-stamped yellow cloth and blue boards printed on Van Gelder handmade paper. Copy #176 of only 225 copies SIGNED by the author. A pioneering book dealing with lesbianism. THE WELL OF LONELINESS provided an open treatment of lesbianism at a time when homosexuality could not be discussed in English books or in the English press. In 1920, the House of Lords declined to amend the criminal laws of England to include lesbians because the Lords would not acknowledge that they even existed. Following its 1928 publication in England, the book was ordered withdrawn from sale by the Secretary of the Home Office. Early in 1929 in New York, Charles Sumner, Secretary of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, acting under a warrant, raided the office of the publisher and removed 865 copies remaining from the sixth edition, then raided Macy's(!) book department. This edition contains a summary of the court proceedings by defense attorney Morris Ernst and a one-paragraph Commentary by Havelock Ellis, author of the (also) suppressed 1897 STUDIES IN THE PSYCHOLOGY OF SEX, who notes that "apart from its fine qualities as a novel by a writer of accomplished art . . . it is the first English novel which presents, in completely faithful and uncompromising form, one particular aspect of sexual life as it exists among us today." Among the many who protested the suppression of the novel were F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Sherwood Anderson, George Bernard Shaw, E. M. Forster, Virginia Woolf, Rudyard Kipling, and Mrs. Ralph Pulitzer. The book remained contraband in England until 1959. Light rubbing of the silver on the spine, as typical for this title.

         DREAM OF THE RED CHAMBER

      Doubleday, Doran & Company, Garden City, N.Y. 1929 - 1st edition, thus. A Good+ copy in Good to Very Good dust jacket. 8vo., xxvii, 371 pp. Bound in red cloth backed bamboo boards with red stamped figure of Chinese lady on the front board; in black, red and green pictorial dust jacket. The dj, priced at $3.00, is chipped along its edges, soiled, with a sunned spine; small loss at the tips and the spine's crown and tail. The front end paper has a small, nickel sized tear at the upper corner. Text block upper tip abraded to a small degree. A Good+ copy in Good+ dust jacket. *** Composed by Cao Xueqin, DREAM OF THE RED CHAMBER is one of China's Four Great Classical Novels. It was written sometime in the middle of the 18th century during the Qing Dynasty. Long considered a masterpiece of Chinese literature, the 2500 page novel is generally acknowledged to be the pinnacle of Chinese fiction. This English abridged translation by Wang Chi-Chen, which emphasizes the central love story, was published in 1929, with a preface by Arthur Waley. Waley said that in the passages which recount dreams "we feel most clearly the symbolic or universal value" of the characters. "Pao Yu", Waley continued, stands for "imagination and poetry" and his father for "all those sordid powers of pedantry and restriction which hamper the artist.". Before this edition, only some of the chapters, couplets and poems were translated. In a 1930 review of Wang's translated version, Harry Clemons of The Virginia Quarterly Review wrote "This is a great novel," and along with the Romance of the Three Kingdoms, it "ranks foremost" among the novels of classic Chinese literature. *** [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Host: m?si?ník pro moderní kulturu, ro?ník [Guest: a monthly journal of modern culture], vols. II, III, IV, VI, VIII

      P?erov and Prague: Hranice-Václav Petr, 1929. Octavos and quartos (21 × 17 to 28.5 × 19.5 cm). Original printed wrappers; 24 pp. each, beginning with vol. III consecutive pagination: 228, 312, 271 and 226 pp. Many issues with illustrations in the text and on separate plates. Lacking vol. IV, no. 1, else complete. Very good, save for vol. II, no. 1, which lacks a fragment of the front wrapper. Set of five yearly runs of this important Czech journal of the interwar literary and artistic avant-garde, in the original wrappers, with frequent illustrations and bold typographic design. Issued by Literární skupina, an association of Czech writers that closely identified with Expressionism. Like the avant-garde group Dev?tsil - based around such figures as Karel Teige, Jaroslav Seifert and Adolf Hoffmeister - the movement sought to unite the young creative minds of the newly formed Czechoslovak Republic. The two groups collaborated, but often disagreed, and their exchanges can be traced throughout this key publication of Czech modernist culture. In design and content, the journal became particularly interesting beginning with vol. IV, which was edited by Seifert and Teige themselves, who shifted the outlook to the international avant-garde. The contributions include important theoretical articles on topics such as Constructivism, Dada, Soviet Art, Surrealism, film aesthetics; poetry and prose by Biebl, Hoffmeister, Nezval, Seifert, Wolker and others; and translations of Apollinaire, Borges, Cendrars, Cocteau, Goll, Khlebnikov and others. The illustrations show works by Altman, Archipenko, Gropius, Kubi?ta, Larionov, Lissitzky, Malevich, Rodchenko, Teige, Zadkin and many others, as well as numerous advertisements for key Czech avant-garde publications. Scarce in the original wrappers.

Juli 1959 in Pollença) war ein katalanisch-spanischer Maler des Postimpressionismus und des Jugendstils. Anglada Camarasa studierte Malerei an der Escola de Belles Arts de Barcelona (`Schule der Schönen Künste in Barcelona`) bevor er 1894 nach Paris zog. wo er zunächst unter sehr einfachen Verhältnissen lebte. bevor seine Kunst um die Jahrhundertwende Anerkennung gewann. 1901 eröffnete Anglada Camarasa ein eigenes Atelier in Paris und lehrte später auch an der Académie Vitti. Er nahm an einer großen Kunstausstellung in Dresden teil. gewann mehrere internationale Preise und erlangte vor allem in Italien Erfolg. Er war mit russischen Avantgardekünstlern wie Gorki. Meyerhold und Kandinsky befreundet. Der dekorativ-ornamentale Stil seiner Frauenporträts aus der Zeit vor 1914 weist hingegen jedoch deutliche Parallelen zu den Werken von Gustav Klimt auf. 1914 bis 1936 lebte Anglada Camarasa auf den Balearen. 1936. zu Anfang des Spanischen Bürgerkriegs. musste der bekennende Republikaner und Freimaurer ins Exil nach Südfrankreich gehen. 1948 kehrte er jedoch auf die Balearen zurück. wo er 1959 auch verstarb.» Versand D: 20,00 EUR Kunst - Monographien Gemälde - Zeichnung Signierte Bücher Kunst - 20 Jht. bis 1945

         Scientific American November (Nov.) 1929 Volume 141 Number 5 - Featuring Timeless Great Depression Advertising Fail

      Scientific American Publishing Company, New York 1929 - Lucky Strike cigarette ad on back cover provides a truly classic and timeless example of a mis-timed advertisement. Consider that the great Wall St. stock market crash of 1929 occurred mere days before this issue hit the newsstands. Beneath the caption "An Ancient Prejudice has been removed" appears a clenched fist labeled as "American Intelligence" breaking a heavy chain. Top left a paranoid miser stacks his gold by candlelight. Top right a wealthy couple visits their palatial bank. Text beneath miser reads "Hoarding gold with the fanatical zeal of the miser has vanished. American Intelligence sponsors thousands of banking institutions to which the individual (i.e. the wealthy couple) safely entrusts his wealth." The message is clear. Readers should put their trust (and money) in the banks, and shun gold. This issue was likely printed just as the Great Crash occurred, causing countless financial institutions to go under - and destroying even more individual fortunes. (The ad goes on to claim that cigarettes have similarly overcome the prejudice against them.) A truly stunning work which deserves to be preserved and reflected upon in this age of limitless fiat currency printing. Average wear with three-inch crease to lower corner of back cover. Suitably framed and mounted, this ad will make a superlative office display for any precious metals executive. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

In the early stages of his collecting activity he focused on European medieval and renaissance art and 18th century ceramics alongside Japanese art, but he soon diversified into early Chinese art, especially after 1906. He not only made use of the services of experts or agents, but also relied on his own rapidly growing experience in acquiring objects. His collection of Oriental art grew to an enormous size, obliging him to add a two-storey extension to the back of his Chelsea house. He founded the Oriental Ceramic Society and was its first president from 1921 until his death in 1939. He organised and funded the publication of eleven volumes illustrating and describing items from his collection during the 1920s and early 1930s. [Wikipedia]. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Isaac Roberts' Atlas of 52 Regions: A Guide to Herschel's Fields of Nebulosity. Edition commemorating Isaac Roberts' centenary (1829-1904).

      Thomery: La maison de Rosa Bonheur, 1929. - FIRST EDITION. Original boards, folio. Very Good, in slipcase. 'Five years after meeting, Dorothea and Isaac were married in 1901 and stayed at his Sussex home. Dorothea left her job at the Paris Observatory in order to be with Isaac, whom she assisted in a project to photograph all 52 of the Herschel 'areas of nebulosity.' Their marriage ended after only a short while with Isaac's death in 1904. Dorothea inherited all his astronomical effects and a considerable fortune. Dorothea remained at the Sussex home and completed photography of the 52 areas, after which she went to stay with her mother and sister, Anna, at Chateau Rosa Bonheur, taking along the entire set of photographic plates. She returned to Paris Observatory and spent 25 years processing the plates and Isaac's notes, periodically publishing papers on the results. In 1929 she published a comprehensive catalogue of the survey 'The Isaac Roberts Atlas of 52 Regions, a Guide to William Herschel's Fields of Nebulosity'. She was awarded the Hèléne-Paul Helbronner prize in 1932 from the French Academy of Sciences for this publication' (Wikipedia). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Le Livre de la vérité de parole. Transcription des textes égyptiens antiques par le Dr J.-C. Mardrus. [A MASTERWORK OF FRANÇOIS-LOUIS SCHMIED]

      F.-L. Schmied 1929 - Small folio, loose as issued on vélin d’Arches, within color-printed wrapper folder with the original glassine, in the original chemise and slipcase, overall 34.9 x 24.8 cm, the wrappers 33.9 x 24 cm, the pages 33.6 x 23.7 cm (13-1/4 x 9-5/16 in.). A collaborator’s copy (apart from the numbered edition of 150), signed by François-Louis Schmied and numbered VII in the colophon. 12 original full-page hors-texte color wood engravings, sequentially numbered I to XII and each with Schmied’s signature, in pencil; 54 additional color wood-engraved designs; decorative rules, bars and headings in color throughout. Collates 29 ff.: [2 ll.], 54 ll., [2 ll]; plus 12 ll. hors-texte color wood engravings printed one side only on single leaves; arranged [1 f. (blank)], 1 f. (half-title, colophon, title), 3 ff. (“Portique,” the introduction by Mardrus), 23 ff. (“Portes,” the 12 chapters), [1 f. (blank)], the hors-texte engraving numbered to each Porte positioned after its corresponding chapter title; complete. Slight corner wear and scuffing on slipcase, chemise spine with slight wear to edges and inconspicuous small spot, paper labels toned, faint offsetting of wood-engraved designs of title page onto colophon page, else generally fine throughout. Bénézit 12-472; Carteret IV 264; Prout II 29-07; Ritchie 28. The orientalist Joseph-Charles Mardrus collaborated with Schmied from 1924 on several works and supplied Schmied with the translations and explications for this adaption of an ancient Egyptian book of the dead. Its title is here incorporated into Schmied’s title-cartouches, the form associated in ancient usage with identifying a royal name. Each of the twelve Portes begins, “'O formes d'éternité, me voici,” a presentation of the self at each chapter-portal for judgment into eternity. The first Porte ends, “Je suis pur. Je suis pur,” an exhilarating declaration in the rites at the threshold of the living dead, nevertheless leading to the continued weighing within the subsequent Portes, each of which ends, “Passe, tu es pur.” Thus on plate IV the green “Feather of Ma’at,” goddess of truth and justice, weighs the heart and pure soul requisite for passage by Osiris, king of the dead, for the journey onward toward the eternal rush fields. After the affirmation of the last Porte is added a monumental engraved block “C’est fini.” Schmied’s maquette and sketches were exhibited in December 1926 at the Galeries Georges Petit in Paris, where Schmied also showed with Dunand, Goulden and Jouve as a group. The edition was then printed in Schmied's atelier by his apprentices and his son Théo. The complex color compositions of the hors-texte plates and the many decorative designs demanded innumerable pulls from the press. Publication was finally achieved by 30 April 1929. “The influence of medieval and Renaissance 'book architecture' that shines through in Le livre de la vérité de parole can be recognized in the initials, ornaments and decorative fields that make Schmied's artist's book so beautiful and so valuable” (Koninklijke Bibliotheek, Koopman Collection on-line). Ward Ritchie (1987) describes the book (no. 28, p.34) as a " perfect collaboration between Dr. Mardrus and Schmied. warm and ingenious in its design, one of Schmied's masterworks"
