        Haveth Childers Everywhere. Fragment from Work in Progress.

      Paris: Henry Babou and Jack Kahane / New York: The Fountain Press, 1930 - Folio in 4s. Untrimmed and partly unopened in original white paper covers printed in black and green, in the original glassine. Enclosed in the original folding card wrapper covered with gilt paper, in the original green paper-covered slipcase with gilt edges and facings and then housed in a green cloth solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. Tiny amount of wear to glassine at front fore-edge at head, one small chip to paper side of slipcase but overall a greatly superior copy, the gilt card wrapper and slipcase in excellent condition. First edition, one of 100 copies printed on imperial handmade iridescent Japan paper signed by Joyce under the limitation notice (in pencil, as the paper would not take ink), the whole edition being 685 copies. This is the most luxurious issue, originally priced $40: the edition was completed by 500 copies on handmade linen, priced $20; and 10 copies on imperial handmade iridescent Japan paper and 75 on handmade linen, these latter two issues designated writer's copies and numbered in roman numerals. Copies were generally issued in paper covers, with a glassine wrapper, in a green slipcase; some copies of the special issues were additionally enclosed, as is this, in a three-panel card wrapper covered with gilt paper, within the green slipcase. The entire construct is relatively delicate and especially liable to chip. Slocum & Cahoon A41. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Akrobatik-Karikatur mit Schwein und Hund. Farbige Kreide.

      1930.. Signiert "W.A. Hablik" und gewidmet "Herrn Aug. Str[ä/ü?]bel zur Erinnerung.". Auf China. 23,6 x 23,4 cm.. Humoristisches, fein durchgearbeitetes Blatt. Gekonnte Darstellung der Tiere und ein interessantes Beispiel für den karikierenden Umgang Wenzel Habliks mit dem Thema Zirkus. - Der Maler, Radierer und Kunstgewerbler Wenzel Hablik studierte an der Wiener Kunstgewerbeschule und der Prager Akademie; seit 1908 war er in Schleswig-Holstein ansässig. Das Wenzel-Hablik Museum widmete dem Themenbereich Tierwelt und Zirkus im Oeuvre Habliks eine eigene Aussstellung mit dem Titel "Habliks Tierwelt. Vom Bild bis zur Figur". "Einheimische und exotische Tierarten, phantastisch-animalische Fabelwesen und humorvolle Zirkusszenen: Tiere spielen im Werk von Wenzel Hablik eine besondere Rolle und dienen ihm als inspirierende Vorlage. In bunten Illustrationen, Skizzen, Ölgemälden, Metallskulpturen und Stoffentwürfen hält er sie fest. Es gibt kaum einen Bereich in seinem Schaffen, in dem er sich nicht mit der Tierdarstellung auseinandersetzt." (wenzel-hablik.de). - Sehr gut erhalten. Montierung in den Ecken teils minimal durchschlagend.
