A very distinctive evidence of an interesting time in Soviet Russia's art history - industrial art exhibition during the first five-year plan of construction.

Overall 161 art pieces were traveling to such small and distant towns like Omsk, Groznyi, Smolensk, Tashkent, Kuzbass, Alma-Ata, Semipalatinsk, Magnitogorsk, Samarkand, etc. Monumental paintings were not part of traveling group though.

Some artists were sent prior to the exhibition to depict construction of massive objects, and their works were shown during the exhibition in those towns (like Dneprostroi, Magnitostroi). Besides paintings by Grabar', Grigoriev, Deineka, Zernova, Lentulov, Kuprin, Mavrina, Petrov-Vodkin, Favorsky, posters were exhibited by Deineka, Klutsis, Svarog etc. Worldcat locates two copies in US libraries (Getty Research Institute, University of North Carolina).

        Paris

      Paris: Jeanne Walter, 1931. Limited First edition. Softcover. vg. 1/1000. Large quarto (11 5/8" x 9"). Unpaginated. [6]pp (Text), [80]pp (Photographs), [2]pp (Colophon). Original glassine over photo-illustrated dust-jacket and blind wrappers, with blue lettering to spine and front cover. Book housed in a modern custom-made quarter black morocco over paper covered board chemise, with silver lettering to spine. Chemise housed in its matching paper covered slipcase. Introduction by Futurist Fernand Léger. "This revolutionary work which introduced Moï Ver to the world is a striking tour de force of photomontage utilizing Bauhaus style photography and design. Its 80 pages of avant-garde photomontages evoke a modern form of Paris through his visualizations. The method in which Moï Ver chose to present his material, in its kaleidoscopic layering and frenzied repetitiveness, emphasizes an experimental approach to picture-construction. In this sense, Paris remains the author's quintessential avant-garde book object. The jacket's front cover superimposes factory smokestacks upon a classic stone colonnade, thus setting up familiar juxtapositions: art and industry, antique and modern, beauty and banality. Moï Ver's Paris is a metropolis pulsating with fast-paced daily life, moving almost out of control. Cobblestone streets, bustling crowds, facades, railway tracks, bridges, the glittering river, and countless monuments shift and shatter here" (Andrew Roth: "The Book of 101 Books," pp. 70-71). It is interesting to note that Karl Lagerfeld's facsimile edition of this work features the photographs in a different order, which seems to indicate that the legendary designer's copy was at some point disbound, with pages mixed up, and rebound without following the original pagination. One of 1000 copies, not all published, of which this is No. 138.Dust-jacket professionally restored at head and tail of spine (3/8ths of an inch at top, and 1 inch at bottom, not affecting lettering). Minor and sporadic rubbing along edges. Front free endpaper slightly smudged. Front free endpaper and fly leaf tightly bound, but slightly loose at bottom. Minor age-toning along paper margin. Text in French. Modern chemise and slipcase in overall very good, glassine and dust-jacket in good+ to very good, wrappers and interior in very good condition.

        West Point Photograph Album and Scrapbook

      United States Military Academy, West Point, NY 1931 - Large 17" x 12.5" album with 42 pages chock full of photographs, ephemera, clippings, and artifacts documenting a cadet's United States Military Academy experience at West Point, New York. The album, pages, and content are in nice shape. Over 90 photographs ranging in size from 2.5" x 2" to 9.5" x 8". The album has some minor wear; the gilt USMA insignia on the front cover has dulled. The binding cord may have been replaced. The album begins with Pratt as a Yearling (guess he didn't have much time as a Plebe although there is one photograph of him labeled "Plebe Hike" and another of Recognition Day) and continues through his year as a Firstie. Most of the photographs and items are from his Yearling year. Contents include: West Point Songbook, Drill Roll rosters, West Point Horse Show tickets, menus, programs (exercise, graduation, theater, etc.), a cartridge box label, a rifle score book, Camp Illumination ticket and dance card, leave papers, an inspection notice, a sports schedule, railroad car window poster for an football game trip, train tickets, USMA logos, maps, etc. Newspaper and magazine clippings Photographs of the campus, formations, parades, individuals, the campus, various uniforms, bivouacs, a furlough to the Pratt family lands on the shore of Lake MacDonald in Glacier National Park and Swatches of cadet uniform cloth, and an Army Marksmanship Badge with Rifle and Pistol bars. Pratt served in both World War II and the Korean War. He was an instructor at the Field Artillery School at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, the XO of the 2nd Communications Regiment, a staff officer at European Command, and a member of the Military Advisory Group to the Republic of Korea. He retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in 1956. One of the best West Point albums we've seen. The mix of photos and ephemera well document cadet life in the late 1920s.

        Robbins' Journal. WITH: 16 signed original drawings

      1931. First Edition . Signed. (WINSLOW, Earle B.) ROBBINS, Archibald. RobbinsÂ’ Journal: Comprising an Account of the Loss of the Brig Commerce of Hartford (Con.) James Riley, Master, upon the Western Coast of Africa, August 28th, 1815; also of the Slavery and Sufferings of the Author and the Rest of the Crew, upon the Desert of Zahara, in the Years 1815, 1816, 1817, with Accounts of the Manners and Customs of the Wandering Arabs. WITH: 16 signed original pen-and-ink drawings for the book by Earle B. Winslow. Greenwich, Connecticut: Condé Nast Press, 1931. 12 items, altogether. Tall octavo, original full debossed cream calf gilt, all edges gilt, original glassine wrapper, original cloth slipcase; 16 original pen-and-ink drawings matted (the six vignettes matted together; largest matt size 14-1/2 by 19 inches). Housed in matching custom clamshell boxes. $5800.Signed limited edition, number 189 of only 355 copies, of this harrowing account of the shipwrecked brig Commerce in 1815, signed by illustrator Earle B. Winslow, together with 16 original pen-and-ink drawings made by Winslow for the book (ten large full-page drawings and six chapter vignettes).“When the American brig Commerce ran aground on the coast of northwest Africa in 1815, Captain James Riley and his crew knew enough to be terrified. Accounts written by other mariners shipwrecked along the same coast chronicled brutal enslavement at the hands of ruthless desert nomads. A few reports suggested that the natives were cannibals. Rather than test the validity of those claims, the sailors quickly set back to sea in a longboat. Nine days later, plagued by thirst and suffering from exposure, they had no chance but to return to shore. Soon after, the crew was captured by Bedouins and forced to march across the Sahara for days with little food or waterÂ… Eventually Riley convinced a desert trader to purchase himself and four members of his crewÂ… [so that] they could be ransomed and returned homeÂ… When Riley finally reached safety in 1817, he published his ordeal as Sufferings in Africa” (Mark Kirby). This is the same terrifying story, recounted by one of the four surviving members of RileyÂ’s crew, Archibald Robbins, and published the same year under the title RobbinsÂ’ Journal. Both accounts were international bestsellers upon their appearance, and Riley and Robbins became national heroes. Abraham Lincoln counted RileyÂ’s Sufferings as one of the six most influential books that he had read in his youth (he actually referred to it often during his presidency). The illustrator of this limited re-publication of RobbinsÂ’ Journal, Earle B. Winslow studied at New YorkÂ’s Art Students League with George Bellows and John Sloan. In 1929, he established his own commercial art studio, and produced advertisements for Exide batteries for which he won an Art directors Award. “Winslow was a member of the Society of Illustrators, the Artists Guild, the Art Directors Club of New York, and the Salmagundi Club, and produced illustrations for The Saturday Evening Post, Cosmopolitan, WomenÂ’s Home Companion, Liberty, and Outdoor LifeÂ… In 1948, Winslow became an instructor at Pratt Institute, and at various other visual arts and cartoon schools” (Smithsonian Institution). Original drawings and book fine, chipping to spine panel of original glassine wrapper, light shelf-wear to original slipcase. A splendid combination of a fine limited edition with 16 of its original drawings.
