         Maailm on lahti! : VII kogu värsse : 1927 - 1930 (The World is Open! : 7th Verses Collection : 1927 - 1930)

      Tallinna Eesti Kirjastus-Ühisus (Estonian Joint Publishing), Tallinn 1930 - Estonian language. Octavo 14 x 20 cm. Weight 210 gr. Wrappers, 121 [1] pp., plus frontispiece leaf. The Book is in Near Fine condition without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Some foxing spots on the cover and on the frontispiece leaf edges, little wrapped cover corners, light rubbing to the front cover edges, inside is perfect preservation (please see images). The motif of "the world is open" gave title to the present poetry collection. Here the author interferes in 20th century life, displaying a global grasp, and embracing the whole world (trains, stations, buses, aeroplanes and other contemporary technological achievements). Poetry is constantly on the move, man rushes from city to city, from the town to the open world: London, Moscow, Leningrad, Venice, Paris. Describing the relations between man and city that bring about a change of mentality, poet makes use of images from nature, especially poeticising small towns (e.g., "Cycle of a Small Town"). An original nature verse emerges where the old opposition between country/nature and town is clearly felt. Poet is more open and stands closer to nature (e.g., the cycle "Anno Domini"). His usage of words and form indicates an expressionist background. Using new (modern) means of expression, he showed the novelty of his thinking. Barbarus employed unusual comparisons and images, the choice and usage of words is highly uncommon, and this very process made him the conscious creator of Estonian urban poetry. Johannes Barbarus (real name Johannes Vares) (1890-1946) was Estonian greatest modernist poet, doctor and politician. His style of verses varied greatly during his career as a poet. His early works followed the trends of French expressionism and Cubism, later poetry took more realistic turn. Though he didn’t directly participate in politics in the beginning, his left-wing thinking undoubtedly influenced his work. He was a radical socialist and was impressed with the initial ideals of the Soviet Union. His travel experiences also played a role in his worldview and subsequently his writing. Brilliant avant-garde constructivist cover design and frontispiece expressionist woodcut print are created by Estonia's most important avant-garde artist Jaan Vahtra (1882–1947). Among all his other achievements he recognized as the man who brought Cubism to Estonia. Most of all valued according to outstanding works in the field of graphics.

Tirage limité et numéroté. 1/150 ex. de tête sur papier d’Arches à la cuve. Bel exemplaire. Réunissant réflexions et critiques que l'auteur publia dans la presse au fil des années, cet ouvrage a paru à l'occasion du Centenaire de l'Algérie. Après un court préambule, il nous présente les premiers maîtres de la peinture algérienne et le renouveau insufflé notamment par la villa Abd-el-Tif. Il s'intéresse ensuite à la technique picturale, au marché de l'art. Il détaille la géographie des paysages algériens (le Sahel, le Sud, les Hauts plateaux, le Sahara) et démontre comment ces climats déterminent un mouvement artistique proprement algérien Victor Barrucand nous invite à des déambulations dans la ville d'Alger, montrant ses transfigurations, son changement continuel et le renouveau de l'art qui en découle. Il souligne la richesse de l'artisanat traditionnel, s'attarde sur les portraitistes, s'arrête sur les différentes ethnies qui composent la population. Il pose encore la question de l'art, comme description de la nature, comme innovation et comme mouvement. Mais pour mieux illustrer l'art orientaliste, plutôt que d'abstraites démonstrations, il présente ses poèmes, subtilement choisis et introduits par de courts textes explicatifs " [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Poema par ormani (Poem about a Cabman)

      Zelta grauds (Gold Grain), Riga 1930 - Latvian language. Enlarged format. Octavo 20 x 24 cm. Weight 100 gr. Wrappers, 48 pp., including 3 sheets of illustrations tables. The book is in Near Fine condition, without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Two soft creases across front cover corners, very light stain on the bottom left corner of front. Three amazing ink drawings for the book considered very successful work of Romans Suta. The poet’s ode to the cabman and the partying and entertaining city in which he drove his cart proved to be close in mood to the artist. That is seen in the many cafes, bars and saloons which he drew. Caks's poem depicts Riga's typical cabman, who became gradually replaced by cars. In the second half on 1920s Riga achieved progress in mechanization, jazz, outlandish schlagers, fashion, artistic movements etc. Poet portrays going away silhouette of modern city, which has undergone entire era of changes. In this poem, as in early works, poet swim strongly against the tide, he is against the generally accepted ranges of society and don't evaluate changes positively (here he takes cabman's side). As a poet, Aleksandrs Caks (1901-1950) was a legend, the most influential poet among the Latvian modernists. Caks' poetry is notable for its urban setting and modernity which gave it a strong contrast with the established pastoral and folkloric traditions in Latvian literature. His verses was devoted to Riga’s restless, throbbing life, including topics and characters that had hardly been featured before — the city nightlife, horse taxi drivers (cabmen), shop-windows, streets and boulevards, poverty- stricken suburbs. He is a world-level poet whose works are endowed with all human feelings, a vast scope of emotions and a passionate love. Aleksandrs Caks’ verse heralded the origination of the modern Latvian poetry by proposing new aesthetic principles and poetic forms. The format characteristics of his verse - rhyme, rhythm and imagery - have influenced succeeding generations of poets. Caks poetry is full of extravagant comparisons and metaphors. He keeps the reader riveted by the vivid scenery, the wealth of personifications, wild imagination and expressivness of his language. The lyrical strand of Latvian poetry is not absent even from Caks's most modernist, futurist poems. Artist Romans Suta (1896-1944) considered as outstanding representative of classical modernism in Latvia's art history. In the late 1910s, Romans Suta created artworks with simple forms and heightened expression. He often depicted Latvians, forged by war and their lives as refugees. By the first half of the 1920s, artist increasingly turned to the styles of Constructivism and Cubism. Very popular became his works in the field of graphic art - series of indian ink drawings which depict inviolable components of an urban environment, along with wine lovers, card players, musicians and dancers.

         Der Fall Gütersloh. Ein Schicksal und seine Deutung. Mit 48 Abbildungen auf Tafeln.

      Haybach, Wien 1930 - 227 S. Roter Orig.-Leinenband mit Schutzumschlag. Das hier vorliegende Werk eines fast Unbekannten über einen, der seinen wenigen Anhängern als verkannt galt, war die letzte verlegerische Tat Haybachs: Es wurden nicht einmal hundert Exemplare wurden verkauft, weder der Autor noch der Maler zogen irgendeinen Gewinn aus dem Erscheinen und der Verlag war pleite. Es handelt sich um eines der seltenen Exemplare der Originalausgabe, nicht um ein Exemplar der 1960 mit neuem Vorowort Doderers aufgebundenen Restexemplare der Rohbögen. Der Umschlag mit geringen Randläsuren und kleineren Fehlstellen, sonst jedoch gut erhaltenes Exemplar mit nur leichten Gebrauchsspuren. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
