        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]

      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"

        Selbst: Gewörtert. Illustrierte Briefe von Horst Janssen. Herausgegeben von Gertraut und Wilhelm Hornbostel / Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, Ausstellung vom 11. November 1994 bis 22. Januar 1995.

      195 (1) Seiten mit 195 Abbildungen Gr.-Fol., gebundene Ausgabe, dunkelblauer Original Ganz-Leineneinband mit blindgeprägtem Rückentitel und Deckelinitialen. mit Schutzumschlag, das Buch ungelesen und wie neu, es handelt sich bei diesem Buch um eine Vorzugsausgabe mit zwei signierten, numerierten Radierungen von Horst Janssen. Die Auflage der eingebundenen Radierungen beschränkt sich auf 100 Exemplare, nummeriert mit Nachlass-Signatur von Lamme Janssen, hier die Nummer 61/100. Horst Janssen (* 14. November 1929 in Hamburg - + 31. August 1995 ebenda) war ein berühmter deutscher Zeichner, Grafiker, Autor, Plakatkünstler, Illustrator, Fotograf. Mit seinen Zeichnungen, Aquarellen, Gouachen, Radierungen, Holzschnitten, Lithographien, gilt Janssen als einer der herausragendsten und produktivsten Zeichner und Grafiker des 20. Jahrhunderts. Selbst: Gewörtert ist der Titel für eine Sammlung von Briefen (und der Ausstellung im Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe, Hamburg 1994/1995), wie sie Janssen sein Leben lang geschrieben und gezeichnet hat. Briefe, die im Wechsel von Schrift und Bild die momentanen Befindlichkeiten widerspiegeln - ein Tagebuch solcher Einfälle, die sich ganz vom jeweiligen Adressaten herschreiben und die bei aller Verspieltheit so authentisch und spontan sind wie wenige Zeugnisse von Künstlern. Janssen hat den Brief zu einem eigenen Genre gemacht und die private und öffentliche Existenz des Künstlers so gegeneinander ausgependelt, dass der Witz noch die Preisgabe des Intimsten soziaverträglich erscheinen lässt. Ein faszinierender und unverzichtbarer Beitrag zu der künstlerischen Auseinandersetzung von Schrift und Bild.

        13 (Parnasas parodijose) : Nuo Maironies iki manes [13 (Parnassus Parodies) : From Maironis to Me]

      Naujas žodis, Kaune (“New Word” Publishing Company, Kaunas) 1929 - Lithuanian language. Octavo 12 x 18 cm. Weight 45 gr. Wrappers, 42 [6] pp. The book in Near Fine condition, without any visible defects, losses and remarks. Little frayed cover edges, creaser across the bottom right corner of front cover, light brown round damp stain on the back cover; internally perfect condition. Amazing avant-garde photomontage cover design in black, red and white by R. Vosylius. Present book is author’s second collection of satirical poems after “3 Granadieriai” (Three Grenadiers), which parodies the symbolists and romantics. In “13” he deepens and refines the same direction and revals himself as a striking master of parody and satire, where masterfully modeled not only choosen characters, but also rhythms, sounds, writing style by using hyberloles in the type of comic grimaces. “13” is the greatest author’s quest to expose ritualized cultural authority. The book’s name is given because of 13 poets, whom each verse is parodying. This list represents a Parnassus of modern Lithuanian literature, most prominent representatives of different movements: romantists - Maironis and Faustas Kirsa; symbolists Liudas Gira, Balys Sruoga, Petras Vaiciunas, Vincas Mykolaitis and Jouzas Zlabys-Zenge; members of avant-garde group Keturi vejai (Four Winds) and author’s like-minded colleagues: Kazys Binkis, Salys Semerys, Juozas Tysliava, Antanas Rimydis and Teofilis Tilvytis himself. Teofilis Tilvytis (1904-1969) famous Lithuanian and Soviet poet, translator. He first published his works in 1923. Early writings were mostly satirical genre. From 1924 to 1928 was a very important figure of cult avant-garde literary movement Keturi vejai (Four Winds). In the Soviet period Tilvytis mainly wrote lyric and epic poems providing socialist realism. He was awarded the Order of Lenin, the Order of the Red Banner of Labor and varioud medals.
