        ARCHIVOS MUSICALES ].

      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.' (Zit. nach ebenda.) - Vorsätze etwas stockfleckig, sonst gut erhaltenes Exemplar. - Siegel C 10.1. Für unsere Schweizer Kunden: Konto in der Schweiz vorhanden

        Black Manhattan (Association Copy Inscribed to Julius Rosenwald)

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1930. First Printing. Hard Cover. Good to Very Good/No Jacket. First Printing. Hard Cover. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Complete including all 14 photographic plates. Sound binding with intact hinges. Clean pages. Light wear to cover but sunned spine. Former owner's name inside front cover. Johnson's inscription on this important dedication copy reads, "For Julius Rosenwald with great admiration and deep regard. James Weldon Johnson / July 10, 1930." Rosenwald was a co-owner of Sears and Roebuck and one of the most generous philanthropists of his age. His Rosenwald Fund built 4,977 schools, 217 teachers' 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'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's preface.

        A Walpi Snake Priest

      Suffolk Engraving Company, Boston 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) This plate depicts Koyawaima or 'Gray [dawn] walking', chief of the Snake fraternity. The Hopi ritual of the sacred Rain (Snake) Dance, in which the Antelope and Snake fraternities participated, lasted for 16 days in the month of August. In 1912, Curtis was permitted to participate in the Dance, the preparation for which he wrote, "We smeared pink clay over our moccasins and other parts of our costume and corn smut mixed with `man medicine' (a concoction of root juices and whatnot) over our forearms, calves and the right side of our head. We whitened our chin and blackened the rest of our face. Around our waist we placed the customary brightly woven fringed belt and in the rear, we hung a fox skin, which moves in rhythm of the dance" (Curtis, Volume XII). "The Hopi are without doubt among the most interesting of our surviving American Indians, and one of the few groups recently living in a state similar to that of a hundred years ago. They call themselves "Hopitu," The Peaceable people, and peace loving they have always been.Affability and sunny disposition are apt to be one's first impression of the dominating traits of Hopi character." (Curtis) Originally related to the Pueblo and Zuñi Indians, they inhabited Southwest region of the United States. 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

        Outrageous, Houdini focused archive: "An Exhibit of Mystic Lore" historically documenting the magician's world from the turn of the century through the 1930's

      24 showboards, 22" x 28", purchased from the son of Herman L. Weber: "In the 1930's and '40's my father, Herman L. Weber, traveled with his magic stage show from coast to coast twice. Prior to his shows my father or his assistants would line up my dad's 24 showboards, "An Exhibit of Mystic Lore," in theatre lobbies or along the hallways of the colleges and schools where he performed. The heavyweight 22 x 28 inch matboards are dark gray in color, although they tend to appear brown under this lighting. An Exhibit of Mystic Lore is now 70 to 80 years old and some displayed items are yellowed by age or stained by deteriorating glue, yet many of the articles and photos are irreplaceable collectibles well worth having. Despite the passage of time, An Exhibit of Mystic Lore has not lost its capacity to entertain." A full set of scans of the showboards are available upon request. All the items are glued down to a board, but many of them will pop off easily. We have discussed the archive with a conservat
