        MICKEY MOUSE BOOK

      - DISNEY,WALT. MICKEY MOUSE BOOK / HELLO EVERYBODY. NY: Bibo and Lang 1930, copyright Walter E. Disney. 4to (9 x 12"), green pictorial wraps, 15p., a fine intact copy with no soil or wear. This is the true first Mickey Mouse book (one of the early issues with bottom panel of rear cover blank and with the word "kill" retained in the song). Published in order to raise money for his new film studio, this includes the Story of Mickey Mouse, Mickey Mouse Game, Mickey Mouse March and a Mickey Mouse Song entitled "Mickey Mouse ('You Cute Little Feller') with accompanying arrangement for the ukelele. Illustrated by the Disney Studios with full page and partial page drawings in black, green and white. The story was written by Bobette Bibo, the 11 year old daughter of one of the publishers. Due to its fragile nature, few copies of quality exist today. See Munsey: Disneyana (p.163, 166) who notes "The book was a small venture, and a relatively small number was produced. Today, the few that survive complete with the game board are eagerly sought by collectors." A beautiful copy. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Ehmig, der in Schweinfurt eine Ausbildung zum technischen Zeichner bei Fichtel & Sachs absolvierte und in Berlin an der Kunsthochschule studierte, war bereits Zeit seines Lebens mit seinen Werken deutschlandweit in Museen und Sammlungen vertreten. Die Tatsache, dass er in der NS-Zeit ein angesehner und geförderter Künstler war, lässt sein Werk durchaus diskutabel erscheinen. Seine Malerei erfüllte zahlreiche Vorstellungen der NS-Granden. - Das vorliegende Bild ist jedoch allein wegen seines seltenen Motives von historischer Bedeutung.

        Blythburgh Priory

      Blythburgh, 1930-1955. Archive of female artist and illustrator Margaret Julia Maria Grubbe (1911-1997), who comes from a long line of famous Suffolk artists and painters, comprising her manuscript drawings, watercolours, and oil paintings, including a journal made whilst in Scotland, letters and critiques from the Royal Drawing Society as she learned and perfected her own unique style, and an exhibitor card from the Ipswich Art Club. Together with several photographs from her childhood and college years, an important photograph of her father, and a scant few personal papers including a lease document for part of the Priory at Blythburgh dated 1936, where she lived and exhibited, at the time being owned by her widowed mother. Margaret Julia Maria Grubbe (1911-1997), is an artist and a book illustrator listed on the Sufflok Painters Index, and was born into a prominent London family of artists. She inherited The Priory at Blythburgh in Suffolk, from where she also exhibited. Miss Grubbe's archive illustrates her progression as an artist, from her earliest submissions to a drawing society, to the skilled development of her unique style. The earliest pencil sketches are inherently reminiscent of the style of her father, Laurence Carrington Grubbe (1854-1912), who died the year after her birth, but whose works must have surrounded her and provided a visual influence. These are followed by a display youthful whimsy and experimentation with bright colour, which in later years, resulted in the skilled creation of elegant and tasteful impressionist scenes largely capturing the essence of life in England. The archive includes the following: A selection of drawings and paintings by Miss Margaret Grubbe, circa 1930-1955. Ranging in size, media, and other attributes, some are made on Whatman's quality water sketching board. Nicknamed Peggy, she sometimes signed her works P. Grubbe. Her pencil sketches are mostly of people while her watercolours render nautical scenes, English landscapes, and garden flowers including a beautiful cymbidium (orchid). It appears that at least one of these works was mounted and exhibited [Spring Flowers, made in 1951]. These range in size from approximately 7x7 cm to 28 x 39 cm. One sketch book of drawings and watercolours made 1945-1946 whilst touring Scotland, containing no less than 28 manuscript pencil drawings, 10 of which are painted in watercolour. Scenes that are inscribed and dated include Loch Linnhe in Argyllshire, Britain's highest mountain Ben Nevis, the Achintee Farm at the foot of it, the mountain and mill at Oban, Cowhill in Whitburn, and Inverlochy Castle in the Highlands. 8vo. Windsor & Newton sketch book measuring 18 x 12,5 cm, coloured leafs. Very good condition. A large journal issued to Miss Grubbe 23 January 1930 by the Royal Drawing Society and containing approximately 32 tipped-in specimens of ink drawings and pencil sketches, and 4 watercolours - for critique and review. An instructional pocket mounted to front pastedown contains children's certificates and papers from the society, as early as 1922. Six typed letters from the Society are mounted to front leaf. Oblong quarto measuring approximately 26,5 x 34 cm, printed red cloth boards. [Founded in 1888, the Royal Drawing Society promoted the teaching of drawing in schools, even at very young ages, based on the theory that owing to astute perception and retentive memory, children attempt to draw before they write]. Over 40 original photographs, featuring a rare snapshot image of her father standing with brush and palette, putting the finishing touches on his most famous painting, "Little Red Riding Hood" which he made two years before her birth. The remainder are childhood photographs, Miss Grubbe in college, so forth. Manuscript draft lease agreement for a cottage and gardens situated just round the bend from the Priory at Blythburgh, dated 15 July 1936, letting to Bertie James Bird of Blythburgh. Margaret Julia Maria Grubbe (1911-1997), is an artist and a book illustrator listed on the Sufflok Painters Index, and was born into a prominent London family of artists. In 1950 she exhibited from The Priory, Blythburgh, Suffolk, two watercolours 'Study of Irises' and 'Spring Flowers', in 1951 her 'Colours of Autumn', and two works in 1952 - 'Winter Study' and 'Chrysanthemums.' She was an associate member of the Ipswich Art Club from 1949 to 1962. She married late in life at Blyth, Suffolk in 1975, Kenneth Gilbert Hubbard (1920-2004) and she died in Waveney, Suffolk in January 1997. Her portrait, playing the violin, was painted in 1940 by renowned painter Sydney Seymour Lucas who was also her uncle. The artist is the daughter, and only child, of respected painter Laurence Carrington Grubbe (1854-1912) of Suffolk, whose sitters included several prominent local diplomats. Her mother is Marie Ellen Seymour Grubbe (1879-1951), née Lucas and nicknamed "Poppets", who was described as a miniaturist in the art community, and whose family was replete with renowned artists. Margaret's maternal grandfather is the esteemed artist John Seymour Lucas, R.A. (1849-1923), a Victorian English historical and portrait painter, as well as an accomplished theatrical costume designer, distinguished antiquary and collector of architectural artefacts. He owned and remodelled The Blythburgh Priory in the then emerging style and influence of the Arts and Crafts Movement which flourished in England between 1880 and 1910. [He was the nephew of portrait painter John Lucas 1807-1874]. Her maternal grandmother was also a painter, known for historical works, genre scenes, and domestic scenes with children, Marie Seymour Lucas, née Cornelissen (1850-1921), wife of John Seymour Lucas, R.A. Illustrator and portrait painter Sydney Charles Seymour Lucas (1878-1954) was her uncle (son of artist John Seymour Lucas, R.A.). Margaret inherited 'The Priory' of Blythburgh from her mother in 1951, who had purchased it from her nephew Arthur Henry Seymour Lucas in 1939. In his will, John Seymour Lucas had given Marie Ellen "The Priory" for life, with reversion to Arthur Henry Seymour Lucas (born 1908).

        Watercolours and Manuscript Drawings by German Theatre Set Designer - Hans Siegert

      Innsbruck, Munich, 1933-1976. Archive of 34 watercolours, manuscript sketch drawings and photographs pertaining to theatre sets designed from 1933-1944 by the highly respected German set director at Tiroler Landestheater Innsbruck - Hans Siegert. Together with 35 original typescript articles published by him in German film magazines from 1955-1976 after he had become a film producer. All text is in German. Hans Siegert (1910-1983) was a set designer and film director. He studied with German illustrator and print maker Emil Preetorius. Siegert is especially remembered for his excellent stage designs created for the Innsbruck theater from 1938 to 1944 when he was Set Director. Several of these are represented here in his original artwork, and in additional photographs of his artwork. Together with his wife, Irma; he also painted cinema posters and giant outdoor advertising for movie theaters. Around 1955, he became a film director. He was involved in numerous film productions, and earned several awards. Hans and his wife Irma were both from Munich. [At the time of Siegert drawings and watercolours, the theatre was called the Royal Bavarian Court National Theatre. In 1945, it was renamed the Tiroler Landestheater (Tyrolean State Theatre).] The archive includes the following: Hans Siegert's large portfolio briefcase containing thirty-four (34) original watercolour paintings on paper, each illustrating a specific theatre set or backdrop designed by him, and 1 collage of watercolour and print material. Each mounted to a paper border, several of which are signed in the original by the artist, several also captioned, and measuring approximately 50 x 35 cm, one being smaller in size. Pin holes to corners suggest that several of these were mounted to Siegert's office walls. The black leather portfolio measures 51 x 37 cm. An art book profusely utilized in 1933, each page abounding with lively pencil sketches, ink drawings, watercolour scenes, poster art templates, manuscript notes, and a scant few photographs and newspaper clippings incorporated into some manuscript drawings. A fascinating volume, these pages illustrate the busy and sedulous mind of an artistic creator, planning various ethnic costume, theatre and film characters, and elaborate sets relating to specific theatrical plays. Replete with scratch notes and doodles, we find a dramatic watercolour depiction of South Tyrolean film producer and actor Luis Trenker, and pencil sketches of the Sahara Palace Hotel in Marrakech, Morocco. 8vo. 92 pages of illustrations. Album of photographs, featuring two (2) original photographs of Hans Siegert diligently planning and designing sets and props, fifty-two (52) photographs of paintings he made for the theatrical sets designed for performances the Innsbruck theatre from 1938-1944, each of the latter captioned and dated in typescript, and eight (8) miniature photographs of prepared stages. Photographs measure between 17 x 12 cm and 3,5 x 2 cm (most measuring approximately 12 x 8 cm). Green coil album from the 1970s. 35 original typescript articles published by Hans Siegert in two Munich based magazines from 1955 to 1976, "Der Film Kreis" [The Film Circle] and Film und Ton Magazine [Film and Sound Magazine]. 8vo. Contained in the covers of a 1955 issue of Der Film Kreis. Autobiographical entertaining screenplay script for a short film titled "Der Dichter und die Bastlerin," the characters being Hans Siegert himself as a film producer, his wife Irma as herself, and a studio owner. 8vo. 19 pages typed and dated 1974 in manuscript to last leaf, contained in string-tied in boards titled and illustrated to front. A succinct biographical sketch of Siegert's career, and then recent shift from theatre to film, being an article clipped from the March 1956 issue of "Jazz Podium" - a German magazine founded in Vienna in 1952. Excerpt from the article: "Aufgrund dieser vielen filme und Auszeichnungen wurde Hans Siegert sehr bald mit Auftràgen für Lehr-,Werbe- und Dokumentarfilme verschiedenster Art betraut." [Based on his many movies and awards, Hans Siegert was readily entrusted with lectures, advertising and documentaries of various kinds.] Illustrating his tireless endeavours and spectacular projects at the Innsbruck theatre, in 1944 alone, Siegert designed sets and backdrops for the following performances: Friedrich Schiller's bourgeois tragedy "Trauerspiel Kabale" [Intrigue and Love], reported by Heinz Cornel Piper on January 17, 1944, as having scenery by Hans Siegert which possessed in itself a magical effect. A performance by Gisa Ott for which Siegert's backdrops have been described as evocative and artistic, creating a special emphasis. For "Hamlet" Siegert skillfully presented the essence of tragedy through simplified, artistic, tasteful decorations amidst an open, darkened scene. For Isa Roland and Gustl Pretsch as old pastoral couple, Hans Ulrich Bach, and others as Grand Duke and Postilion, he created a most lively stage, especially for the Sesenheimer songs by Goethe. A unique office setting design for the dynamic comedic act "Lisa benimm Dich!" [Lisa behave yourself!]

        My Early Life

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1930. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is an unusually clean and bright copy of the first edition, first printing, of Churchill?s extremely popular autobiography. My Early Life covers the years from his birth in 1874 to his first few years in Parliament. One can hardly ask for more adventurous content. These were momentous and formative years for Churchill, including his time as a war correspondent and cavalry officer in theatres as varied as Cuba, northwest India, and sub-Saharan and southern Africa. This time contained a wide range of experiences in Churchill?s life. Not only was he developing as an author, publishing his first books, and making his first lecture tour of North America, but this was also the time of his capture and daring escape during the Boer War, which made him a celebrity and helped launch his political career. Churchill would take his seat in Parliament only weeks after the end of Queen Victoria's reign. My Early Life remains one of the most popular and widely read of all Churchill's books. And for good reason, as the work certainly ranks among the most charming and accessible of his many books. An original 1930 review likened it to a "beaker of Champagne." That effervescent charm endures; a more recent writer called it "a racy, humorous, self-deprecating classic of autobiography." To be sure, Churchill takes some liberties with facts and perhaps unduly lightens or over-simplifies certain events, but this is eminently forgivable and in keeping with the wit, pace, and engaging style that characterizes the book. My Early Life sold very well at the time and has seen a great many editions since, many of them collectible in their own right, but of course a premium attaches to first editions. The challenge for collectors is that the plum colored binding of this edition proved especially susceptible to fading, soiling, and wear; nearly all copies are considerably spine faded. Moreover, the contents are susceptible to heavy spotting and the binding is often cocked. This helps explain why so many first editions of this book have been torn apart and rebound. This copy approaches near fine. The coarse cloth is square and tight with nicely rounded spine, sharp corners, bright gilt, and only trivial wear to extremities. The spine is sunned, as is inevitable, but far less so than we typically see, retaining some of the original plum color and bright gilt, and with clean presentation, marred only by a single, tiny black blemish above the author?s name. The contents are likewise unusually clean and bright. Light spotting is almost entirely confined to the page edges, with just a hint of spotting to the endpapers and prelims. The endpapers show a very faint indication of differential toning corresponding to dust jacket flaps, hinting that this copy may have long been jacketed, which would explain the superior condition of the binding. The sole previous ownership mark we find is a tiny Birmingham bookseller sticker affixed to the lower rear pastedown. The page edges are very lightly spotted and mildly age-toned, but otherwise clean. First edition, first printing is confirmed by the title page verso. Second state of the first printing is confirmed by the inclusion of the 1911-1914 volume of The World Crisis on the half title verso list of works by the author. The binding is protected with a removable, clear mylar protector and housed in a stout grey cloth slipcase with rounded and leather-trimmed caps at the opening. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A91.1.c, Woods/ICS A37(aa), Langworth p.131.

        4 autograph letters and 2 (1 autogr. and 1 typed) postcards, all signed. Neuilly-sur-Seine and n. p., 1930 to 1976.

      1930. Large 4to and 8vo. Altogether 6 pp. on 6 ff. Together with 2 typed letters by Labisse (carbon copies) and 2 letters of response. To the Belgian author, filmmaker and documentarist Henri Storck. The first letter dates from the beginning of their friendship; in it, Labisse argues vehemently against becoming involved in politics: "Occupons nous essentiellement d'art et de littérature. Bougre de nom de Dieu!, nous ne sommes bon qu'à cela. C'est déjà quelque chose, il y a tant qui y sont étrangers. Je ne condescendrai jamais à jeter le plus infime regard sur les [illegible] de la société, laissons les laver leur linge sale en famille ; que m'importe les régiments, ils se valent tous, ils sont tous aussi mauvais. Henri, nous ne pouvons nous occuper de tout. Laissons les politiciens s'arracher les yeux pour avoir le pouvoir [...]" (17. V. 1930). - In one letter, Labisse asks his friend to take pictures of the paintings in his possession for an illustrated catalogue of his work: "j'aimerais que tu me fasse parvenir 2 photographies de chaque tableau de moi que tu possèdes. 'Le baptême de l'air'. 'Le démythifieur'. Et si possible celles du portrait que j'ai fait de ta sœur Janot [...]" (18. X. 1976). - One month later, he has obviously gotten some of the pictures as well as some other documents, reminding him of their youth: "Merci pour les documents, souvenir de notre puberté. Tu dois en avoir une ou deux avec James Ensor sur la plage - pendant le tournage d'un de tes films - mais je ne me souviens plus [...] du film. Au sujet des négatifs noirs et blancs, les tableaux photographiés pour [illegible], je te remercie, cela sera très utile. Voilà ceux qui me manquent : Document I: Bonjour Marie; [...] L'infallibilité; [...] Découverte de l'amérique [...]; Document II: Le combat singulier; [...]. Fais les moi parvenir quand tu pourras [...]" (22. XI. 1976). - In 1977, on the occasion of Stock's 70th birthday, Labisse honors his fried by a long letter (or was it a speech?) about the latter's accomplishments: "Nous nous sommes connus en 1926. Tu étais alors un garçon un peu austère et un tantinet dogmatique. Malgré nos caractères assez différents il s'établit très vite entre nous une amitié complice, et, avec l'impétuosité de la jeunesse nous fonçâmes allégrement dans le ventre mou des Arts. Ostende, à cette époque, était une ville extraordinaire [...] En 1927, aventure mirobolante ... Tu inventes le CLUB DU CINÉMA d'OSTENDE, un des premiers du genre. J'en suis nommé pompeusement le Secrétaire Général. [...] Et puis, en 1929, ce fut LA MORT DE VENUS, ton premier court métrage de fiction, tourné sur la plage avec une ravissante autrichienne, un colonel en retraite et moi-même. Hélas, il ne reste que quelques rarissimes photographies de cette œuvre historique malheureusement perdue. Je cesserai maintenant d'égrener ces quelques souvenirs très anciens. Les nombreux films que tu as réalisés depuis sont tous ici 'en chair et en os' illustrant magnifiquement ton soixante dixième anniversaire et tes cinquante ans de cinéma. [...]" (7. V. 1977). - James Ensor (1860-1949) was a Belgian painter and printmaker.
