        Adolphe Appia: 1er Septembre 1862 29 Fevrier 1928

      Zurich: Art Institut Orell Fussli, 1929. Adolphe Appia: 1er Septembre 1862 29 Fevrier 1928. Zurich: Art Institut Orell Fussli, 1929. Large oblong folio (13 1/2 in. x 18 3/4 in.). 16pp. text in French plus 56 mounted, tinted plates reproducing Appia\'s important set designs arranged in chronological order. Plates loose as issued, in publisher\'s green cloth and boards portfolio. Excellent copy with a few minor stains. One of the rarest of all modern books on scenography. This volume was done shortly after Appia\'s death. The beautiful plates provide the best record of Appia\'s work, since many were taken from Appia\'s drawings held in museums and private collections. His productions of Wagner\'s Walkyrie (1892), Tristan et Yseult (1896) and other Wagner operas are documented, as are his designs for the modern rhythmic dances of Jacques Dalcroze and Ibsen\'s Petit Eyolf, Orphee, King Lear, and Hamlet. Finally, there are a series of drawings from his Gluck Iphigenie operas.

A small man who led an outsized life, Stein became widely known and respected for the fitness, stamina, and indomitable resolve he displayed throughout a series of challenging and at times dangerous expeditions during the first forty years of the 20th century that opened territories in Central Asia not previously accessible to modern Europeans. Original brown cloth with gilt spine lettering and an Alexandrian coin stamped in gilt on the front board. Bookplate to the front pastedown with a tiny owner’s stamp to the inner margin of the half-title. Slight cock to the spine; otherwise a clean and tight, very good copy..
