Text leaves additionally decorated with an additional 46 mounted black and gold illustrations and head and tailpieces in black and white.Publishers orange silk cloth, front cover lettered in gilt with black and gold illustration, spine decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. Original decorative tan paper dust jacket printed in orange. Original tan cardboard box decoratively printed in dark brown. Ink signature on front pastedown. A very fine copy.With the original Thomas Y. Crowell eight-page leaflet describing the work of Willy Pogany loosely inserted."Had Omar Khayyam, the old tentmaker, visioned the beauty of his verses centuries later in Western dress, as embroidered by a Hungarian artist, he might have had a new conception of the meaning of immortality. For Pogany, the Hungarian, had made Omar, the Persian, live again." (Willy Pogany and his Work. eight-page leaflet).Willy Pogany had previously illustrated the Rubaiyat in 1909, but these later illustrations are quite a different interpretation, more westernized and modernized than the earlier ones.Willy Pogány, born in Szeged, Hungary, in 1882, studied at Budapest Technical University and in Munich and Paris. His reputation as a muralist, painter and illustrator was well established in Paris, London and Munich before arriving in the United States in 1915, at the age of thirty-three. Skilled in an unusually wide range of media, he had won gold medals at exhibitions in Budapest, Leipzig, and at the Panama Pacific International Exhibition."Among Pogány's many murals are those for the Heckscher Children's Theatre in New York City and the Niagara Falls Power Station. As a painter he did portraits of famous people in all walks of life. An expert on scenery design and lighting effects, Pogány also designed sets for ballets and operas, including "Le Coq d'Or," and for many films, such as Modern Times for Charlie Chaplin as well as animated cartoons based on his children's books."Among his other artistic endeavors Pogány was an accomplished book illustrator. It was this phase of his career, especially as an illustrator of children's books, which gives this collection special relevance for Special Collections & University Archives at the University of Oregon Libraries. Pogány designed and illustrated more than 150 books. His illustrations include those for the Rubaiyat and the Sonnets from the Portuguese, The Song Celestial, The Adventures of Odysseus, Gulliver's Travels, and many others, both classic and original."Working tirelessly right up until the end, Willy Pogány died in 1955" (University of Oregon, Guide to the Willy A. Pogány Papers 1910-1967).

      Barcelona, 1879-1930. - Exceptionnel et précieux ensemble de partitions, pour la plupart manuscrites, composant les archives musicales du guitariste espagnol Severino García Fortea. Né vers 1850 à Siete Aguas près de Valence, il vécut toute sa vie à Barcelone où il mourut en 1931. Elève et ami du maître guitariste Tárrega, il fut un guitariste de haut niveau et l'un des premiers à composer systématiquement des arrangements pour la guitare à partir d'airs connus. On lui attribue notamment le premier arrangement pour la guitare de la célèbre pièce "Asturias" du compositeur Albéniz, initialement composée pour le piano et qui devint l'un des morceaux les plus célèbre du répertoire de la guitare classique. Ces archives se composent 1° d'une importante collection de partitions manuscrites, autographes pour la plupart, et 2° de partitions imprimées sous forme de fascicules conservés dans une chemise cartonnée ou sous forme de volumes reliés. Les archives manuscrites rassemblent plus de 150 partitions autographes signées de Severino García, dont plus des deux tiers sont constitués de ses travaux originaux de transcription pour la guitare et ses compositions originales. On y trouve également des pièces autographes signées par des musiciens de l'entourage de García Fortea, comme Francisco Tárrega, Manuel Rodríguez, Miguel Ángel Garcia Lassalette, Francisco Ferrán, Severino López, Antonio Mestres Gómez, Fernando Gravina, ou Antonio López Villanueva. Parmi les partitions imprimées se trouve notamment un exemplaire annoté de l'Arlésienne de Bizet, un exemplaire du livre de Baldomero Cateura i Turró sur la mandoline espagnole offert par l'auteur à Severino García Fortea, un recueil de partitions pour piano, et une importante collection de fascicules de musique notée dont certains ont été offerts à Severino García par leur auteur (Eduardo Mezzacapo, Manuel Burgés). Cet ensemble exceptionnel offre un témoignage de première importance sur les travaux du guitariste espagnol, sur son entourage et sur ses influences musicales dont elles permettent d'apprécier la variété.

        Panoptikum. Gestalten und Kulissen.

      Knorr u. Hirth, München. 1930.. 140 S., 2 Bll. 8°, Orig.-Leinenbd.. Erste Ausgabe der Sammlung. - Sehr selten. - Der Band enthält Feuilletons, die zuvor größtenteils in der 'Frankfurter Zeitung' erschienen waren. Publiziert wurde die Auswahl jedoch von Knorr u. Hirth, dem Verlagshaus der christlichkonservativen Tageszeitung 'Münchner Neueste Nachrichten', welche mit ihrer politischen Ausrichtung nicht auf das Nachfolgeblatt, die Süddeutsche Zeitung, hinwies. Die Herausgabe einer solchen Zusammenstellung hatte zuvor die Frankfurter Societäts-Druckerei abgelehnt. (Vgl.: Heinz Lunzer u. Victoria Lunzer-Talos, Joseph Roth, Leben und Werk in Bildern. Köln, 1994. S. 170.) - Als Roth von der liberalen 'Frankfurter Zeitung', die seine Texte exklusiv oder gar nicht drucken wollte, aus finanziellen Erwägungen heraus zu dem Münchner Blatt gewechselt war, wurde dies auch außerhalb der Frankfurter Redaktion mit Unmut aufgefasst (Vgl.: Helmuth Nürnberger, Joseph Roth mit Selbstzeugnissen und Bilddokumenten dargestellt. Reinbek, 2002. S. 79). So schrieb F. C. Weisskopf: 'Das stocknationalistische Münchner Blatt hat den großen Reporter, den glänzenden Stilisten, den Schriftsteller von Rang, Joseph Roth, einfach im Versteigerungswege erstanden, wie man etwa einen Posten Papier oder Druckerschwärze ersteht.'

His Rosenwald Fund built 4,977 schools, 217 teachers&#39; homes, and 163 shop buildings for African-American children in 15 states from Maryland to Texas. Johnson, one of the most influential African-Americans in the first half of the twentieth century, was a famous author, songwriter (he and his brother wrote "Lift Ev&#39;ry Voice and Sing" as well as popular songs like "Under the Bamboo Tree"), educator, lawyer, diplomat, civil rights activist, and a longtime leader in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). In 1929, Rosenwald began to shift his philanthropic focus from funding black education projects to funding creativity in the African-American community by providing a series of large fellowships to black writers, artists, intellectuals, and researchers. Johnson was the first recipient, and he used his grant to publish Black Manhattan, the most important cultural study of African Americans from their first arrival in America to their triumphant achievements in 1920s Harlem. Johnson also thanks the Rosenwald Fund in this book&#39;s preface.
