English cats that do not look like Louis Wain cats are ashamed of themselves” (H.G. Wells).“From 1883, Wain began to draw cats as they had never been drawn before, cats in humorous guises, in human situations, but always beautifully handled…although he was sometimes forced to draw dogs before he became well-known!” (Houfe, The Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists 1800-1914).

        La Symphonie à Dieu

      N.R.F., Editions Gallimard, Paris 1930 - EDITION ORIGINALE imprimée en noir et rouge. En frontispice, eau-forte originale en couleurs de Joseph SIMA, signée dans la plaque. Tirage à 471 exemplaires. Un des 370 numérotés sur Arches, celui-ci portant sur le faux titre cet ENVOI autographe signé et daté juillet 1933 de Jouve : « à André Masson grand et fatal artiste, en le remerciant encore pour l¿image admirable qu¿il a mise sur Sueur de Sang ». ¤¤¤¤¤¤¤ Achevé d¿imprimé le 10 juin 1933, le livre SUEUR DE SANG que Jouve évoque dans sa dédicace fut publié par les éditions des Cahiers Libres. Pour les 15 premiers exemplaires son directeur René Laporte demanda à André Masson une eau-forte originale, tout comme il avait sollicité Salvador Dali, Max Ernst et Yves Tanguy pour d¿autres titres. L¿année suivante, l¿écrivain publie une seconde édition du recueil, toujours aux Cahiers libres, qu¿il corrigera et complétera en y ajoutant entre autre le grand poème Piéta dédié à André Masson. Ce texte tout comme la dédicace de Jouve sur LA SYMPHONIE A DIEU marque bien l¿amitié qui liait les deux artistes. Cependant, il faudra attendre 1952 pour que Masson illustre à nouveau un livre de Jouve en donnant une lithographie pour le tirage confidentiel de LANGUE, également orné d¿estampes de Sima et de Balthus.

        Wolf Lies Down - Apsaroke

      Boston: Suffolk Engraving Company, 1930. A breath-taking image from "The North American Indian", the grandest illustrated work ever produced in the United States, the most important illustrated work on Native Americans, and the single greatest book in Western Americana. Only the double-elephant folio edition of Audubon's "Birds of America" surpasses Curtis in its massive ambition and beauty of execution. "...Because of the singular combination of qualities with which he has been blessed, and because of his extraordinary success in making and using his opportunities... (Curtis) has been able to do what no other man has ever done; what, as far as we can see, no other man could do. He is an artist who works out of doors and not in a closet. He is a close observer, whose qualities of mind and body fit him to make his observations out in the field, surrounded by the wild life he commemorates. He has lived on intimate terms with many different tribes of the mountains and the plains. He knows them as they hunt, as they travel, as they go about their various avocations on the march and in camp. He knows their medicine men and their sorcerers, their chiefs and warriors, their young men and maidens. He has not only seen their vigorous outward existence, but has caught glimpses, such as few white men ever catch, into that strange spiritual and mental life of theirs; from whose inner most recesses all white men are forever barred...." (Theodore Roosevelt, Foreword to Volume I) A member of the Never Packs Game clan, Wolf Lies Down was a Mountain Crow leader, who fought against the Sioux in the Battle of Pryor Creek near Billings, Montana in 1860. According to Curtis, in "stature and in vigor the Apsaroke, or Crows, excelled all other tribes of the Rocky Mountain region, and were surpassed by none in bravery and in devotion to the supernatural forces that gave them strength against their enemies." (Volume IV) Originally planters from the upper Midwest, they inhabited the Plains and Prairies region of the United States, where they became hunters and skilled horsemen. Edward Curtis was fascinated by the story of the Native Americans from childhood. His in-depth knowledge of the various tribes increased in parallel with his skill as a photographer during his participation in a number of scientific expeditions in the 1890s. In 1896, Curtis began to take photographs of the Native American tribes (by 1930 he had taken over 40,000 negatives of eighty tribes) and evolve his hugely ambitious plan for a comprehensive work which would illustrate his romantic vision of Native American life before the disastrous impact of European contact. With the enthusiastic support of President Theodore Roosevelt (who wrote the foreword to the present work) and the financial backing of J. Pierpont Morgan (Curtis was introduced to him by Roosevelt), the publishing project finally got under way in 1906. Pierpont Morgan died in 1913 just before the completion of the ninth volume, but his son agreed to continue underwriting the project; between them, they eventually contributed about a third of the $1,500,000 cost. What had originally been projected to take five or six years eventually stretched to twenty-three, finally reaching a conclusion in 1930 but leaving Curtis a broken and bankrupt man. Nonetheless, his grand design was completed, and his work remains as his monument. Cf. Naef & Goldschmidt The Truthful Lens 40; cf. Howes C-965. Photogravure after Edward Curtis, printed by the Suffolk Engraving Company, Japon paper. Very good condition apart from a mild surface abrasion in the top left corner of the plate mark.

        Madman's Drum: A Novel in Woodcuts by Lynd Ward

      Jonathan Cape and Harrison Smith October, 1930, New York - SIGNED. 118 images. Octavo [25 cm] Black cloth with illustrated paper labels on the front board and backstrip. Top edge gilt and fore edge deckled. Illustrated endsheets. Housed in a black slipcase. The book is in very good condition. The extremities are gently rubbed, soiled and faded. The spine is heavily faded, and subtly rolled. The title label on the spine has a very small loss from the bottom right corner. There is a small damp stain at the foot of the spine, and there is a 7 inch long light blue colored pencil mark on the front board. The boards are barely perceptibly concave. The illustrations are very slightly offset on the opposite pages, and the pages are lightly tanned. Despite the subtle tanning, the pages are actually quite clean and bright. The book is sturdy. The slipcase in fair condition only, with mild staining. The top edge is missing, and the underlying boards are exposed along the edges. There are numerous splits in the edges as well. Number 5 of 299 copies. Signed by the author/illustrator on the limitation page. Ward's second work is a visual tale of man's quest for power, and the inevitability of death. A masterpiece from one of the giants of twentieth century illustration. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Mad Man's Drum

      Harrison Smith & Robert Hass, New York 1930 - A novel in pictures, and with a great bonus - an original woodcut by Ward, signed, loosely inserted. Ward made his name doing these fabulous books without words. And this is an extremely rare SIGNED copy. The still excellent binding is from another Ward engraving, and it forms an overall pattern. The signature is with an inscription by Ward, and it is on the half title. The book is safe inside a stiff plastic jacket, presumably added at a later date. A BRILLIANT and RARE combination of book, print, and inscription. Extremely collectable, of course, but especially so at this price. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Castle

      London: Martin Secker,, 1930. A Novel. Translated by Willa and Edwin Muir Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to upper board and spine gilt, top edge stained yellow. With the dust jacket. Some typical spotting to fore edge, very minor partial browning to the endpapers, spine just a little faded, but an excellent copy in the nicked and slightly rubbed dust jacket with the inevitable tanning at the spine and a trace of loss at the head and foot of the spine panel. First English edition, first impression. The Castle will never attain the fame of its sister The Trial, but in literary terms it is more than a match. This was the first publication in English of any of Kafka's books, preceding English editions of The Trial and Metamorphosis by some seven years. It is far scarcer than either.

        Clowns, Elefant und Maus in der Manege. Bleistift.

      1930.. Signiert und gewidmet "Herrn Aug. Str[ä/ü]bel zur Erinnerung an den "Reinfall" vom Sommer 1930!" Auf Velin. 21,9 x 26,8 cm (Blattgröße).. Blattfüllende Skizze. Das Blatt ist ein gutes Beispiel für das zeichnerische Können und 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. Unbedeutende Braunfleckchen und Montierung im Rand teils minimal durchschlagend.

        Dark Romanticism: From Goya to Max Ernst: Von Goya bis Max Ernst [Englisch] [Hardcover] Hrsg. Felix Krämer (Autor) Roland Borgards, Ingo Borges, Claudia Dillmann, Dorothee Gerkens, Johannes Grave, Mareike Hennig, Hubertus Kohle, Felix Krämer, Franziska Lentzsch, Alexander Meier-Dörzenbach, Manuela B. Mena Marqués, Nerina Santorius, Claudia Wagner

      Hatje Cantz, 2012. Auflage: 1 (23. Oktober 2012). Hardcover. Good. 28 x 23,6 x 2,6 cm. From its very inception in the late eighteenth century, Romanticism's celebration of euphoria and sublimity has been dogged by its equally intense fascination with melancholia, insanity, crime, the grotesque and the irrational. In 1930, the famous literary theorist Mario Praz named this strain in literature "Dark Romanticism," but its equivalent in art has never been thoroughly assessed in art history. This volume is the first to examine a current that runs from Goya's war etchings through Symbolism and up to Surrealism, presenting Romanticism as an intellectual position that was embraced throughout Europe and that endured into the twentieth century. Among the artists included are Henry Fuseli, William Blake, Caspar David Friedrich, Victor Hugo, Arnold Böcklin, Gustave Moreau, Odilon Redon, Félicien Rops, James Ensor, Max Klinger, Edvard Munch, Hans Bellmer and Max Ernst Die spektakuläre Herbstausstellung im Städel Museum, Frankfurt/Main | Die Schattenseiten des menschlichen Daseins in der europäischen Kunst zwischen Romantik und Surrealismus Seit dem späten 18. Jahrhundert begeisterten sich zahlreiche Künstler nicht nur für die Erhabenheit der Natur und die Reinheit des Gefühls, für Melancholie und Einsamkeit, sondern zeigten sich zugleich angezogen von den Abgründen der Conditio humana, wie sie sich in Zeiten von Krieg und Wirtschaftskrisen offenbaren. Ihre Werke erzählen von Leidenschaft und Tod, sie thematisieren das Geheimnisvolle, Unheimliche, Irrationale, Fantastische, Groteske und Böse und zeigen gesellschaftlich Ausgegrenzte Wahnsinnige, Verbrecher, Bettler. 1930 prägte der Literaturwissenschaftler Mario Praz hierfür den Begriff der »Schwarzen Romantik«, doch eine kunsttheoretische Aufarbeitung steht bis heute aus. Die Publikation untersucht erstmals ausführlich die Bezüge zwischen romantischen, symbolistischen und surrealistischen Strömungen und präsentiert das Romantische als wiederkehrende Geisteshaltung, die ganz Europa erfasste und sich bis ins 20. Jahrhundert erstreckt. Die spektakuläre Herbstausstellung im Städel Museum, Frankfurt/Main. | Die Schattenseiten des menschlichen Daseins in der europäischen Kunst zwischen Romantik und Surrealismus.
