        Aziats : dzejoli / saucieni / dialogi (The Asian : Poems / Cries / Dialogues) [Poetry Collection]

      Kreisa Fronte, Riga (The Left Front, Riga) 1929 - Latvian language. Octavo 13 x 18 cm. Weight 60 gr. Wrappers 59 [2] pp. The book is in Near Fine condition, without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Wrapped cover edges, one minor crease across bottom corner of front cover, light foxing stains inside the cover of the book and on the flyleaf (please see images). Striking cover and experimental typography content design created using avant-garde constructivist mannerisms of the time by either Ernests Kalis or Sigismunds Vidbergs, who both were noted modernist artists and book designers. Modernist collection of poetry "Asian" is imbued with the ideas of revolutionary struggle and hatred for capitalism. After the October Revolution author disappointed in bourgeois culture and capitalist society, hence his creation is characterized by social revitalization and wicked satire. Influenced by Mayakovsky, Laicens uses in poetic speech words which considered as unpoetic bringing poetic language to common speech simplicity expressing protest and struggle for the new content by changing the form, operates with revolutionary poster slogans, experiments with free verse. This author's work is some kind of leftist revolutionary manifesto - bright, aggressive, protestant, outstanding. Linards Laicens (1883-1938) is considered as central figure of the Latvian avant-garde, one of the most eminent personalities in Latvian modernist literature. Important organizer of the legal workers’ press and of revolutionary culture in bourgeois Latvia he edited cult leftist avant-garde journals Kreisa fronte (The Left Front) and Tribune (The Tribune). Laicens worked in the communist underground during Latvia's independence, but moved to the Soviet Union in 1933 to escape a prison sentence in Latvia. He was purged for his revolutionary efforts in 1938. Laicen’s social, politic and artistic views affect his creation development - fight about equality of society class and destroyed nation borders is unique qualities of wirter's creativity. His early poetry is represented by the lyrical hero expression, urban poetry, deny of the past and characterized by expressionism, also decadence, aestheticism and futurism features. Later poems main theme became revolutionary propaganda with expressionism and sometimes realism. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        AMICA, rivista mensile illustrata per la donna e per la casa - 1929-1940 ANNI I- XII TUTTO IL PUBBLICATO -, Roma, Soc. Italiana Commercio Calze, 1929

      1929. Siamo in presenza di una ricercata rivista che ha tracciato in pratica la storia della MODA ITALIANA incidendo sul costume nel periodo più brillante del fascismo appena priima dell'entrata in guerra. In un paio di bibliografie abbiamo rilevato notizie sulla uscita della rivista anche nel 1941, ma poi in pratica neppure sul sito OPAC ed in altri noti portali non ne abbiamo trovato traccia, Ogni annata è composta da 12 numeri (formato 23 x 29) pagine 60-90 cadauno. Tutte le copertine sono molto belle e opera dei maggiori illustratori di quegli anni. La rivista si rivolge al pubblico femminile con BRILLANTE PUBBLICITA' DEL SETTORE, numerose fotografie di DONNE E MODELLE CON ABITI ELEGANTI, modelli di ogni tipo e forma, economia domestica, racconti roimantici, ma anche scritti impegnati ed importantI con autori come MUNARI, LUCILLA ANTONELLI, MILANESI, ANGUISOLA , RAFFAELE CARRIERI, eccetera eccetera,) e traccia il PROFILO DELLA "DONNA FASCISTA MODERNA ED EMANCIPATA". Le rilegature delle dodici annate sono in piena pelle a sbalzi con i titoli in rilievo e sono in condizioni positive pur con qualche ferita, salvo due (1934 e 1938) che hanno biosogno di restauri. Queste rilegature "ostentate" sono una prova che probabilmente la collezione possa essere appartenuta alla famiglia di un GERARCA. Vanno infine citati alcuni artisti autori delle stupende copertine che elenchiamo in ordine sparso SCHIPANI (futurista), MATELDI, TITINA, FONTANA, SANTAMBROGIO (numerose). DAL FORNO, ALESSI, GRUAU, BRUNETTA, DAMIANI, MAROTTA, SPAVENTA FILIPPI, e tantissimi altri.

        Maldoror.

      Prague: Jan Fromek 1929 - Octavo, original wrappers bound in full calf boards, top edge gilt, 123(v)pp. No. 68 of 150 copies on antique paper, from an edition of 300 numbered copies. Selected poems from Lautréamont's proto-surrealist classic, translated into Czech by Jindrich Horejší with Karel Teige's and Philippe Soupault's collaboration. The first illustrated edition to reach publication, with twelve 2-color lithographs by Jindrich Štyrský. It includes a 30-page postscript by Teige who also designed the cover, typography and plates. The book was released in the early spring of 1929 and sold out before it was censored by authorities a few months later. The belated censorship and confiscation attempts resulted in an uproar. This is a landmark publication and a fine document of the creative ferment of the Czech avant-garde. It signaled a shift of focus in the movement of the Poetism spearheaded by Teige, Toyen and Nezval in the Devetsil movement to embracing deeper psychological and mythic undercurrents. As a visual statement it comprises some of Štyrský's finest artwork to appear in book form. The imagery and execution herald a shift in Štyrský's work from his Artificialism he had developed a few years earlier to a definite incorporation of surrealist and chance elements in his highly individual approach which would inform and characterize the artist's output for the remainder of his life. Notwithstanding the debt of the artist to the poet, the images pay no direct relationship to the text. Štyrský wrote at this time, „ The graphic description of verbal metaphors is distracting to true lovers of poetry.“ Maldoror's author figured prominently in Štyrský's psyche and he returned to Lautréamont's themes again and again. In 1939 he stated that Lautréamont was the greatest of modern poets. The entire book and contents fine, very crisp. Worldcat finds this in 10 North American libraries.

        The Celtic Druids, or An Attempt to show, that The Druids were the Priests of Oriental Colonies Who Emigrated from India; and were the Introducers of the First or Cadmean System of Letters, and the Builders of Stonehenge, of Carnac, and of Other Cyclopean Works, in Asia and Europe

      London: Rowland Hunter/Hurst & Chance/Ridgway and Sons, 1929. Second Issue. Hardcover. Very Good. The first printing was issued in 1827 in a slightly shorter version and had fewer plates than this volume. Quarto. Bound in half red morocco over marbled boards. Spine with 5 raised bands and gilt title and date. Top edge gilt. Marbled end papers. Besides the present title page it also includes the lithographic title page from the first edition. Full page errata sheet with second (smaller) errata slip tipped in on the following page. 324 pages. Illustrated with 45 lithographic plates, many of which are large foldout plans of Stonehenge and other monuments, plus one map, and wood vignettes at the beginning and end of each chapter. This copy belonged to noted Welsh scholar and bookbinder, Henry Blackwell, with his bookplate to front pastedown. Blackwell also bound this particular copy. Very light edgewear and slight rubbing to boards, a couple of tiny scuff marks to the leather on spine. Some light foxing on several pages but mostly mild and in margin areas. The binding is strong and secure. A very well preserved copy of this scarce work. A VERY GOOD TO NEAR FINE COPY. Higgins attempts to show that the Druids of the British Isles were the priests of a very ancient nation called Celtae, and that they were a colony from the first race of people, a learned and enlightened people, the descendants of those who escaped the effects of the deluge on the borders of the Caspain Sea. He claims they were the earliest occupiers of Greece, Italy, France and Briton, arriving in those places by a route along the 45th parallel (north). He stresses that other colonies from this same great nation advanced via a southern line through Asia, peopling the Middle East and Africa, and arriving into Europe by sea through the Straights of Gibraltar (the Pillars of Hercules). He also attempts to show that all the languages of the Western world were the same, and that one system of letters, that of the ancient Irish Druids, was common to the British Isles, Italy, Greece, Syria, Arabia, Persia and Hindustan. As you may imagine he was the subject of a lot of ridicule from scholars of his time. Regardless, this is a fascinating exploration of ideas and his examinations of Stonehenge, the Avebury and Carnac areas, and other locations with monumental structures is very interesting indeed. Higgins prefaced this 1829 second edition stating that he was preparing a review of "all the ancient Mythologies of the world, which, however varied, and corrupted in recent times, were originally one, and that one founded on principles sublime, beautiful, and true." This review would later become his most famous work: Anacalypsis. Some of the chapter headings are as follows: Necessity of Etymology; Alphabets; Changes in Language; Druids acquainted with Letters; Irish, Greek, and Hebrew Letters the same; Hieroglyphics; Ciphering invented before Letters; Virgil a Druid; Genesis; Persia, India, and China, the Depositaries, not the Inventors of Science; Who the Celts were; Affinity between the Latin, Sanskrit, and Celtic; Term Barbarian; Arrival of Phoenician Colonies in Ireland; Origin of Irish Fables; Derivation of the word Britain; Hero Gods; Derivation of the words: Albion, Druid, Vates and Bards; Britain known to Aristotle; Road to Britain lost, like that to America and Australia; magnetic Needle; Ancient Oracles founded by Celts; Druids probably Pythagoreans; Cross common to Greeks, Egyptians, and Indians; Monograms of Christ; Druids admitted the Creation of Matter; Festivals removed by the procession of the Equinoxes; Druid Festival of Christmas; Mother of the Gods; Baal; Gods of India and Ireland the same; Chaldees of the Jews; St. Patrick; A single Plain Stone the Origin of Idolatry; Rocking-Stones or Logan Stones; Circular Temples, Stonehenge and Abury; Stonehenge not a Roman, Saxon, or Danish Work; Ancient Superstitions respecting Numbers; Observations on Hebrew Chronology; Hierarchy of the Druids; Druids Assertors of their Country's Liberty; Immortality of the Soul and Metempsychosis; Druids had an excellent System ofMorals; Mistletoe and other Sacred Plants; Institution of Priesthoods an Evil, etc.

        White Bottoms: A Set of four Pochoirs.

      Paris 1929 - Four hand-coloured pochoir prints, mounted, overall dimensions 61 x 44.5cm. These beautiful and witty prints were published as part of the album White Bottoms by a French caricaturist SEM (1863-1934). This charming and electric work illustrates the joy and excess of the Jazz Age; the title humorously refers to the Black Bottom, the dance craze that overtook the Charleston as the era's trademark leg-play. White Bottoms is illustrative and humorous depiction of the aging Parisian upper-class contemporary to the artist. The work is in some way a record of the last days of full sun in Paris before the turbulent and economically unstable thirties.

        ALBANIA / GEOLOGY – ORIGINAL PUBLISHER’S PROOF: GEOLOGISCHE KARTE VON NORDALBANIEN AUFGENOMMEN VON DR. FRANZ BARON NOPCSA 1905 – 1916.

      Budapest: Magyar Állami Földtani Intézet [Geological Institute of Hungary] [] 1929 - Chromolithograph with monochrome lithographed overlay on transparent paper (Excellent, clean old vertical and horizontal folds), 66 x 60 cm (26 x 23.5 inches). The original publisher’s proof of Franz Baron von Nopcsa’s geological map of Northern Albania, the first scientific geological map of the region. This intriguing production is the original publisher’s proof from the Magyar Állami Földtani Intézet (Geological Institute of Hungary) of Franz Baron Nopcsa’s geological map of Northern Albania, being the first scientific geological map of that region. Nopcsa was a Hungarian nobleman, and a world-renowned paleontologist and geologist, who from 1905 to 1916, resided in Albania, where he became a leading authority on that nation’s history, culture and natural sciences, as well as a prominent member of its independence movement. He remains one of the biggest names in modern Albanian history. During his time in Albania, Nopcsa conducted the first scientific geological reconnaissance of the country, with a particular focus on the northern regions. The present publisher’s proof consists of two distinct physical parts: first, the lower chromolithographed map is based directly on Baron Nopcsa’s original manuscript geological sketch map of the region; second, the transparent overlay, featuring a highly precise monochrome skeletal road map of the region, was intended to both contextualize Nopcsa’s geological mapping and to correct his relatively geodetic errors. For the resulting printed map, issued to accompany Nopcsa’s academic article, ‘Geographie und Geologie Nordalbaniens’, within the journal Geologica Hungarica, Series Geologica, vol. 3 (Budapest: Magyar Állami Földtani Intézet, 1929), these two components were combined, such that the information upon the overlay was integrated into the main map, which naturally necessitated some amendments to the positioning of certain features. Northern Albania was a region of exceptionally rugged topography, and traditionally an area of great political instability, meaning that it was one of the last regions of Europe to be geologically surveyed. Nopcsa’s principally German-language map embraces all of Albania north of the Ishem River (labeled here as the ‘Mata’), a land dominated by the North Albanian Alps, and including the area around the major city of ‘Scutari’ (Shkoder), extending its overage a little ways into coastal Montenegro, as far as Bar. The various geological zones are colour-coded, identified on the two legends on the right side of the map, the ‘Farbenerklärung [Explanation of Colours] (Sediment)’ notes 13 sedimentary zones; while the ‘Farbenerklärung (Eruptiva)’ notes 6 zones created by volcanic activity, plus noting the red lines that demarcates tectonic faults. The ‘Zeichenklärung’ (Explanation of Symbols), in the upper left corner, identifies: Horizontal Layers, Cliffs with gradients under 45 degrees, Cliffs with gradients over 45 degrees, Triangulation Points, Churches, Mosques, and Highpoints (with elevations in metres). Below, the ‘Häufigere Ortsbezeichnungen’ (Frequent Place Names) translates the Albanian words employed to denote: Mountains, Rivers, Creeks, Passes and Plains. The present map dramatically surpassed any previously effort to express the complex geology of the region, forms a critical component of the modern geological mapping of the Balkans, in general. Franz Baron Nopcsa: A Giant of Geology, Paleontology and Albanian History - Franz Baron Nopcsa von Fels?-Szilvás (1877 - 1933) was a world-renowned geologist, paleontologist, SEE OUR WEB-PAGE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTION.

        Leaves From A Missionary’s Notebook (Vellum Copy)

      The true First Printing published by Secker and Warburg in 1929. This is number 1 of one hundred and twenty five copies specially printed on vellum paper each numbered and signed by the author. Interestingly although this copy is numbered '1' , it appears to be unsigned. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Light pushing at the spine ends with a little fraying at the lower spine tip. Light soiling to the boards. Gilt titling remains bright. Light spotting and a few minor marks to the end-papers. Mild toning to the text-block and page edges. Free from inscriptions and erasures. Fascimile handwriting and illustrations throughout, by the author. Seen as a risqué publication when it first appeared, this "comical fantasia" [Tennant's own words] is a rather camp tale of the Rev Littlejohn and two lady companions who embark on a missionary expedition to the deepest jungle. Tennant was a British socialite known for his decadent lifestyle. He was called 'the brightest' of the 'Bright Young People'. A very nice copy of a scarce title. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

        Mohyla Dr. Mr.R. Stefanika na Bradle.

      Prague: State nakladatelstvo 1929 - Folio, cloth, 72pp. Jurkovic was the preeminent Slovak architect from the Secessionist period through the immediate post (2d) war building design. This is a monument to Dr. Milan Stefanik (1889-1929), astronomer and military leader who was a founder of the First Republic of Czechoslovakia with Tomas Masaryk. Stefanik died in a tragic airplane crash in the mountains of Slovakia at an early age, and Jurkovic was inspired to construct this remarkable edifice in the highlands at the crash site quite soon after Stefanik's death to commemorate his contribution to the new country. Du&#154;an Jurkovic (1868-1947) was a great Slovak architect working from the turn of the century through all the modernist movements that occurred in Czechoslovakia. He evolved a very individual, rustic Slovak style for which he was highly acclaimed, somewhat parallel to the Zakopane style of Stanislaw Witkiewicz the elder in Poland. Later he moved into Czech Functionalism with an equal success. Many photos and plans, color plate. Text in Slovak. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
