        Autograph letter signed

      1933 - RACKHAM, Arthur. Autograph letter signed. Surrey, England, July 28, 1933. Single sheet, measuring 4-1/2 by 7 inches folded; pp. 4 (writing on first and last pages). With archive of related material. $2200.Original lengthy autograph letter from Arthur Rackham, entirely written and signed by him, to a Mrs. Lloyd [Berrall] regarding the theft of his illustrations by American artist Edward Trumbull for a mural in New York's Metropolitan Life Building, with original hand-addressed signed envelope.This autograph letter by Arthur Rackham was written in response to a letter from a Julia Smith Berrall (a.k.a. Mrs. James Lloyd Berrall) of Montclair, New Jersey. Berrall had written to Rackham to inform him that the new murals in New York City's Metropolitan Life Building by muralist Edward Trumbull were "exact copies of the figures in [his] illustrations of Rip Van Winkle and the Legend of Sleeph [sic] Hollow." She further inquired whether Rackham had given permission to Trumbull to use the images. Less than two weeks later""incredibly quickly for transatlantic mail""Rackham penned an outraged response. The letter, written from Rackham's home in "Stilegate, Limpsfield, Surrey, England" and dated "28.7.33," reads: "Dear Mrs. Lloyd, Many thanks for your letter. You are quite right in assuming that. I know nothing about Mr. Trumbull's theft of my designs""for it is nothing less. I will take steps to find out whether there is anything to be done about it. That whether Mr. Trumbull is on the safe side of the law or not (& one fears he may have taken steps to find out, before embarking) it is a strange mentality that allows one artist to lift the work of another without even the courtesy of an acknowledgement. I am indeed surprised that a man in such a position as Mr. Trumbull appears to be should so demean himself. One would think that any artist would feel it to be an outrage, which it certainly is. Yrs sincerely, Arthur Rackham. PS. The question of International Copyright is one that to my sorrow the United States will not agree with the rest of us about." Included with the letter to Mrs. Berrall are a copy of an article concerning the murals in the May 1933 issue of Pencil Points that showed pictures of the murals, but made no reference to Rackham; a copy of Berrall's letter to Rackham; a handwritten letter on Montclair Art Museum stationary which appears to be a draft of Berrall's letter to Publisher's Weekly inquiring about the plagiarism issue and inquiring as to whether Pencil Points was aware of Rackham's ownership of the mural images; a letter to Berrall from Publisher's Weekly confirming that Metropolitan Life was aware of the plagiarism and was attempting to come to a settlement with Rackham; a draft of an article by Jesse Mann of The Chatham Bookseller who acquired the Berrall/Rackham material and attempted to find out the ultimate disposition of Rackham's claim against Metropolitan Life; a copy of a letter from The Book Collector to Mann asking for additional information on the Met Life building; and Mann's finished article, published in The Book Collector in 1996.Autograph signed letter and envelope fine. A fascinating and desirable collection of items. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Inscribed on the half title, "Hommage de l'auteur a Madame C. Capaldi, sa dénoncé collaboratrice, Paris le 20 Mai 1937, F. Libron," and accompanied by 15 separate plates from the "Album" laid in.Written some years after the heyday of corsetry by Fernand Libron, president of the Chambre Syndicale des Fabricants de Corsets, and Henri Clouzot, conservateur of the Musee Galliera (better known today as the Musee la Mode et du Costume), this monumental costume book pays special tribute to Ernest Leoty's very scarce Le Corset a Traverse les Ages (1893), which includes detailed cutting paterns and technical information for the tailor who specializes in making corsets. "A corset is somewhat similar to an umbrella in its construction. When the umbrella is raised, the fabric tautens. The ribs are reinforced with metal tips, to which the fabric of the umbrella is sewn. These tips hold the fabric in a tautened condition while the umbrella is in use. It is the same with a corset" (O.Y. Dalziel). Text in French. Accompanied by 15 loose engravings, listed in the index of illustrations under the heading "Album." Hiler, 544. Book and plates fine, spine panel of original glassine perished, slipcase only slightly rubbed. A fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        The Debt-Deflation Theory of Great Depressions.

      [Menasha, Wisconsin], The Econometric Society, 1933. Royal8vo. In a contemporary black half calf binding with gilt lettering to spine. In "Econometrica", Vol. 1, 1933. Entire volume offered. Light wear to extremities and small stamp to title-page. A fine copy. Pp. 339-357. [Entire volume: (4), 448 pp.]. First edition of Fisher's seminal work in which he introduced the concept of 'Debt deflation': a theory of economic cycles that holds that recessions and depressions are due to the overall level of debt shrinking (deflating): the credit cycle is the cause of the economic cycle.The theory was developed by Irving Fisher following the Wall Street Crash of 1929 and the ensuing Great Depression. The debt deflation theory was familiar to John Maynard Keynes prior to Fisher's discussion of it, but he found it lacking in comparison to what would become his theory of liquidity preference. The theory, however, has enjoyed a resurgence of interest since the 1980s, both in mainstream economics and in the heterodox school of post-Keynesian economics, and has subsequently been developed by such post-Keynesian economists as Hyman Minsky and Steve Keen and by the mainstream economist Ben Bernanke. "During the Great Depression, observing the catastrophes of the world around him, which he shared personally, Fisher came to quite a different theory of the business cycle from the simple monetarist version he had espoused earlier. This was his 'Debt-deflation theory of depression', summarized in the first volume of Econometrica, the organ of the international society he helped to found. The essential features are that debt-financed Schumpeterian innovation fuel a boom, followed by a recession between excessive real debt burdens and deflation. Note the contrast to the Pigou real balance effect, according to which prices declines are the benign mechanism that restores full-employment equilibrium. The realism is all on Fisher's side. This theory of Fisher's has room for the monetary and credit cycles of which he earlier complained, and for the perversely pro-cyclical real interest rate movements mentioned above."

        Paris De Nuit.

      Arts et Métiers Graphiques,, Paris: 1933 - Brassai's acclaimed masterpiece, "Paris de Nuit" published by Arts et Métiers Graphiques, Paris in 1933. Writing in "The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century," Andrew Roth wrote ".with 62 rich full-page photogravures capturing his unforgettable "social fantastic" vision of Paris, "Paris de Nuit" combines the luxe and the louche. Its graphic design is sophisticated and its photogravure reproductions so rich that the sooty blacks still look like they'll rub off the page. Paul Morand, novelist, diplomat, and, later, persona non grata for his collaboration with the Vichy government, gets the cover's most prominent credit for his essay here, but Brassaï's photos are the book's real meat. Brassaï became a master at drawing luminosity from the darkness. [This work has] lost none of its dark glamour or film noir grit". "The book created a sensation when it was published; many pictures from the series were deemed too risqué and were not exhibited or published for decades, until the 1976 sequel, "The Secret Paris of the 1930s." The first book set [Brassaï] on a lucrative and prolific career" (McDarrah, 55). Measuring approximately 10 x 8 inches, the book is wire spiral bound in photographically illustrated fragile wrappers. The condition of the book is very good with a corner creased on the back and slightly rubbed corner tips to the covers and some internal corners near the spiral wire. There is no foxing or signs of previous ownership. Overall, this is a highly desirable copy of a notoriously fragile masterpiece that is rarely found in this condition. Cited in all three reference works on photobooks: "The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century" by Andrew Roth, "The Photobook: A History" by Parr and Badger, and "The Open Book" by Andrew Roth. Royal 8vo, photographic endpapers,10pp text, 62 full page gravure plates. Parr & Badger I, 134; Roth, p. 76. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
