        Maailm on lahti! : VII kogu värsse : 1927 - 1930 (The World is Open! : 7th Verses Collection : 1927 - 1930)

      Tallinna Eesti Kirjastus-Ühisus (Estonian Joint Publishing), Tallinn 1930 - Estonian language. Octavo 14 x 20 cm. Weight 210 gr. Wrappers, 121 [1] pp., plus frontispiece leaf. The Book is in Near Fine condition without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Some foxing spots on the cover and on the frontispiece leaf edges, little wrapped cover corners, light rubbing to the front cover edges, inside is perfect preservation (please see images). The motif of "the world is open" gave title to the present poetry collection. Here the author interferes in 20th century life, displaying a global grasp, and embracing the whole world (trains, stations, buses, aeroplanes and other contemporary technological achievements). Poetry is constantly on the move, man rushes from city to city, from the town to the open world: London, Moscow, Leningrad, Venice, Paris. Describing the relations between man and city that bring about a change of mentality, poet makes use of images from nature, especially poeticising small towns (e.g., "Cycle of a Small Town"). An original nature verse emerges where the old opposition between country/nature and town is clearly felt. Poet is more open and stands closer to nature (e.g., the cycle "Anno Domini"). His usage of words and form indicates an expressionist background. Using new (modern) means of expression, he showed the novelty of his thinking. Barbarus employed unusual comparisons and images, the choice and usage of words is highly uncommon, and this very process made him the conscious creator of Estonian urban poetry. Johannes Barbarus (real name Johannes Vares) (1890-1946) was Estonian greatest modernist poet, doctor and politician. His style of verses varied greatly during his career as a poet. His early works followed the trends of French expressionism and Cubism, later poetry took more realistic turn. Though he didn’t directly participate in politics in the beginning, his left-wing thinking undoubtedly influenced his work. He was a radical socialist and was impressed with the initial ideals of the Soviet Union. His travel experiences also played a role in his worldview and subsequently his writing. Brilliant avant-garde constructivist cover design and frontispiece expressionist woodcut print are created by Estonia's most important avant-garde artist Jaan Vahtra (1882–1947). Among all his other achievements he recognized as the man who brought Cubism to Estonia. Most of all valued according to outstanding works in the field of graphics.

Tirage limité et numéroté. 1/150 ex. de tête sur papier d’Arches à la cuve. Bel exemplaire. Réunissant réflexions et critiques que l'auteur publia dans la presse au fil des années, cet ouvrage a paru à l'occasion du Centenaire de l'Algérie. Après un court préambule, il nous présente les premiers maîtres de la peinture algérienne et le renouveau insufflé notamment par la villa Abd-el-Tif. Il s'intéresse ensuite à la technique picturale, au marché de l'art. Il détaille la géographie des paysages algériens (le Sahel, le Sud, les Hauts plateaux, le Sahara) et démontre comment ces climats déterminent un mouvement artistique proprement algérien Victor Barrucand nous invite à des déambulations dans la ville d'Alger, montrant ses transfigurations, son changement continuel et le renouveau de l'art qui en découle. Il souligne la richesse de l'artisanat traditionnel, s'attarde sur les portraitistes, s'arrête sur les différentes ethnies qui composent la population. Il pose encore la question de l'art, comme description de la nature, comme innovation et comme mouvement. Mais pour mieux illustrer l'art orientaliste, plutôt que d'abstraites démonstrations, il présente ses poèmes, subtilement choisis et introduits par de courts textes explicatifs " [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Poema par ormani (Poem about a Cabman)

      Zelta grauds (Gold Grain), Riga 1930 - Latvian language. Enlarged format. Octavo 20 x 24 cm. Weight 100 gr. Wrappers, 48 pp., including 3 sheets of illustrations tables. The book is in Near Fine condition, without any visible defects, losses, remarks and stains. Two soft creases across front cover corners, very light stain on the bottom left corner of front. Three amazing ink drawings for the book considered very successful work of Romans Suta. The poet’s ode to the cabman and the partying and entertaining city in which he drove his cart proved to be close in mood to the artist. That is seen in the many cafes, bars and saloons which he drew. Caks's poem depicts Riga's typical cabman, who became gradually replaced by cars. In the second half on 1920s Riga achieved progress in mechanization, jazz, outlandish schlagers, fashion, artistic movements etc. Poet portrays going away silhouette of modern city, which has undergone entire era of changes. In this poem, as in early works, poet swim strongly against the tide, he is against the generally accepted ranges of society and don't evaluate changes positively (here he takes cabman's side). As a poet, Aleksandrs Caks (1901-1950) was a legend, the most influential poet among the Latvian modernists. Caks' poetry is notable for its urban setting and modernity which gave it a strong contrast with the established pastoral and folkloric traditions in Latvian literature. His verses was devoted to Riga’s restless, throbbing life, including topics and characters that had hardly been featured before — the city nightlife, horse taxi drivers (cabmen), shop-windows, streets and boulevards, poverty- stricken suburbs. He is a world-level poet whose works are endowed with all human feelings, a vast scope of emotions and a passionate love. Aleksandrs Caks’ verse heralded the origination of the modern Latvian poetry by proposing new aesthetic principles and poetic forms. The format characteristics of his verse - rhyme, rhythm and imagery - have influenced succeeding generations of poets. Caks poetry is full of extravagant comparisons and metaphors. He keeps the reader riveted by the vivid scenery, the wealth of personifications, wild imagination and expressivness of his language. The lyrical strand of Latvian poetry is not absent even from Caks's most modernist, futurist poems. Artist Romans Suta (1896-1944) considered as outstanding representative of classical modernism in Latvia's art history. In the late 1910s, Romans Suta created artworks with simple forms and heightened expression. He often depicted Latvians, forged by war and their lives as refugees. By the first half of the 1920s, artist increasingly turned to the styles of Constructivism and Cubism. Very popular became his works in the field of graphic art - series of indian ink drawings which depict inviolable components of an urban environment, along with wine lovers, card players, musicians and dancers.

        The Savoy Cocktail Book

      London: Constable & Company, Ltd, 1930. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Good +. Rumbold, Gilbert. 12 mo - over 6.75" to 7.75" tall, 292 pps. A cultural icon and the foundation for all great modern bartending books. Harry Craddock (1876-1963), British by birth, had emigrated to the US in 1897 but moved back to Britain with the advent of prohibition, landing a job at the American Bar at the Savoy Hotel, London, in 1920. His bartending guide, a collection of 750 recipes (several of which he is credited for creating) was published in 1930 and remains in print today. This copy is a first printing, with the date on the title page and before the publishers inserted the errata slip modifying the "Bacardi Special Cocktail" on page 25 to simply "Bacardi Cocktail". We believe the UK edition was published prior to the US, as there is an advertisement for the book dated November 23, 1930 in the London Observer while the ealiest mention found in the US is a review in the Hartford Courant dated December 7, 1930. This copy with an inserted ad spread for Booth's Gin ("Welcomed by the Gallants of 1740") as a tipped in sheet between the half-title and title pages. ***DESCRIPTION: Decorated paper boards with an Art Deco design, black cloth spine, pictorial endpapers, 2-page ad spread for Booth's Gin tipped into the book between the half-title and the title pages, 1930 date on the title page, decorations and illustrations throughout by Gilbert Rumbold (as late as the 1950s, he was living in Broadstairs, continuing to sketch drawings of local scenes that were sold in gift shops around the town, despite having lost an arm in a train accident); duodecimo size (just under 7.5" tall), pagination: half-title page with Aldrich quote on verso (1-2), inserted ad spread (i-iv), title page (3) through 286 includes three pages with only blank lines at the end, page 287 a vignette of a haughty woman peering through a lorgnette off to the side, followed by the printer's statement (printed by Lowe & Brydone, London), (288). ***CONDITION: We are rating as good plus due to overall wear to the binding; there is some light rubbing to the front board, general fairly minor edgewear, wear to the head and tail of the spine including light loss of the cloth, there is a bend in the spine running vertically down the center, and the gilt lettering on the spine has rubbed off; both hinges are tender although the endpapers have not cracked, and there is some offsetting to the endpapers from the inks on the pages opposite. The interior pages are clean and bright, we see no prior owner markings of any kind, there is perhaps a hint of toning to the pages, the interior is near fine. ***POSTAGE: International customers note that additional postage may apply, please inquire for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

The Ajanta Caves in Aurangabad district of Maharashtra state of India are about 30 rock-cut Buddhist cave monuments which date from the 2nd century BCE to about 480 or 650 CE. The caves include paintings and rock cut sculptures described as among the finest surviving examples of ancient Indian art, particularly expressive painting that present emotion through gesture, pose and form. . According to UNESCO, these are masterpieces of Buddhist religious art that influenced Indian art that followed. The caves were built in two phases, the first group starting around the 2nd century BC, while the second group of caves built around 400-650 AD according to older accounts, or all in a brief period of 460 to 480 according to Walter M. Spink. The site is a protected monument in the care of the Archaeological Survey of India, and since 1983, the Ajanta Caves have been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. . The Ajanta Caves constitute ancient monasteries and worship halls of different Buddhist traditions carved into a 250 feet wall of rock. The caves also present paintings depicting the past lives and rebirths of the Buddha, pictorial tales from Aryasura's Jatakamala, as well as rock-cut sculptures of Buddhist deities in vogue between the 2nd century BCE and 5th century CE. . Textual records suggest that these caves served as a monsoon retreat for monks, as well as a resting site for merchants and pilgrims in ancient India. While vivid colours and mural wall painting were abundant in Indian history as evidenced by historical records, Caves 16, 17, 1 and 2 of Ajanta form the largest corpus of surviving ancient Indian wall-painting. . Panoramic view of Ajanta Caves from the nearby hill . Ajanta is famous for its ancient Buddhist paintings.

      ADRIEN AUGUSTE LEDUC 1930 - - 21 ETUDES PREPARATOIRES ART DECO contrecollées sur feuillets 21/29.7 cm crème, représentant des angelots et des amours. Aquarelles, encres et crayons. Lavis. - LEDUC Adrien Auguste ; manufacture de Sèvres. Décorateur ; chef du laboratoire ; formes et décors à la MANUFACTURE DE SEVRES entre 1919-1954. - De l’Art Déco à l’abstraction. Le courant Art Déco s’impose à Sèvres avec l’arrivée d’une jeune équipe d’artistes. De cette collaboration naissent d’autres créations très fortement liées aux tendances du style 19 caractérisant la période de l’entre deux guerres. Ainsi, le décorateur Jean Beaumont n’hésite pas à mélanger les tons primaires et apporte un style neuf par son interprétation florale moderne. Les décorateurs, à l’exemple d’Adrien LEDUC, Maurice Herbillon, ou encore la créatrice Anne-Marie Fontaine, participent à cet élan. A la fin des années 30, l’ornement est jugé trop envahissant L’adoption des motifs géométriques vient chasser les effets naturalistes des décors floraux. Dans les années d'après guerre, les artistes Jacques Despierre et Camille Hillaire insufflent un nouveau style de décor à Sèvres au moment où le courant de l’abstraction tend à restreindre la place du florilège et en livrer une nouvelle interprétation. Un retour au décor classique floral qui a toujours illustré la renommée de Sèvres s’impose en s’adaptant au goût de l’époque. Mots clés : MANUFACTURE DE SEVRES, DESSIN ENCRE, art déco Mots clés : angelots, amours, aquarelles, Art-déco, faïence, [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
