Шамбинаго, писанный и иллюстрированный палехским мастером И. Голиковым. [М.]: Academia, 1934. - 52 с.: ил.; 43х29.4 см. - 3300 экз. Фронтиспис и девять цветных иллюстраций под лаком в лист, цветные с золотым вкраплением сюжетно-растительные форзацы, орнаментированный титульный лист, заставки, концовки и инициалы работы выдающегося палехского мастера лаковой миниатюры, потомственного иконописца И. Голикова. Шрифт стилизован под рукописный полуустав. Художественная редакция, макет издания и общее наблюдение М.П. Сокольникова. В составном издательском переплёте: на крышках цветные иллюстрированные вставки под лаком по рисункам И. Голикова. Торшонированный обрез. Шёлковое ляссе. Без футляра. Голиков создавал иллюстрации для «Слова о полку Игореве» на протяжении двух лет. Полиграфическое оформление книги было осуществлено типографией Гознака и полностью отвечало замыслу художника. Роскошное художественное издание, признанное шедевром книжного искусства. В книге помещено 10 миниатюр: 1) изображение Баяна, Игоря и Ярославны; 2) встреча Игоря с Всеволодом - отсутствует; 3) затмение солнца; 4) поход; 5) битва; 6) пленение Игоря; 7) Святослав рассказывает боярам о своем сне; 8) «Злато слово» Святослава; 9) плач Ярославны - отсутствует ; 10) бегство Игоря из плена. Переплет оформлен как поверхность палехской шкатулки: в центре в виде медальона изображение битвы воинов на конях, остальная поверхность коричневого (или черного) цвета с изображением золотом летящих стрел и по четырем углам - сражающихся воинов. Сохранность рисунков в уцелевших экземплярах плохая, так как все иллюстрации были покрыты экспериментальным лаком. В результате цвета не соотвествуют оригиналу и имеет тусклый "ржавый" вид. Иван Иванович Голиков (8 января 1887 (27 декабря 1886) -- 30 марта 1937) -- русский художник-миниатюрист, заслуженный деятель искусств РСФСР (1935 год), непосредственный инициатор и учредитель Артели древней живописи Палеха 4-5 декабря 1924 года Иван Голиков родился в Москве в семье потомственного художника-иконописца с трёхвековой художественной преемственностью Ивана Михайловича Голикова. Когда ему было 7 лет семья переехала в Палех, спасаясь от страшного голода, который начался в Москве. В десятилетнем возрасте он был отдан на обучение иконописному делу в известную в Палехе мастерскую братьев Сафоновых. В 1900 году, обучившись приёмам доличного письма, Иван Голиков отправился в Петербург, а затем в Москву для работы в иконописных мастерских. Отец скончался, когда Ивану исполнилось 14 лет, он остался старшим в семье. Юноше пришлось работать, не покладая рук -- он занимался реставрацией живописи, росписью церквей и монастырей. Его специализацией было доличное письмо, то есть, художник писал на иконах одежды. Расписывал церковь Святоозерского монастыря от мастерской М. Л. Парилова в 1907 году и церкви в Казани. Оставил крупицы своей работы в Новодевичьем монастыре, Грановитой палате, в московских и питерских храмах. Работая в Петербурге, он некоторое время посещал рисовальные классы училища барона Штиглица. В 1907--11 годах Иван Голиков проходил воинскую службу, в 1911--14 годах работал в мастерской Н. М. Сафонова в Палехе, и расписывал церковь в Казани. В 1914--17 годах ушёл на фронт Первой мировой войны в составе 27 Сибирского полка, и был контужен. После первой мировой войны и Революции 1917 года художник начинает свои самостоятельные творческие поиски. Некоторое время он работает театральным художником в Шуе, Кинешме, Иваново-Вознесенске и Костроме, создавая декорации к спектаклям «Лес», «Гроза», «Снегурочка», «Борис Годунов», «Русская свадьба» и «Лекарь поневоле». В 1921 году он создал свою первую миниатюру -- расписал шкатулку из папье-маше, и показал её руководству Кустарного музея. В 1922 году, работая в мастерской художника А. А. Глазунова, Иван Голиков создал целый ряд росписей на папье-маше, наметив основные черты нового искусства, и став, по сути, его отцом-основателем. К этому времени мастер смог органично синтезировать особенности трёх иконописных школ -- Палехской, Строгановской и Ярославской. Манера художника заинтересовала ряд искусствоведов, среди которых был его дальний родственник А. В. Бакушинский, оказавший содействие в организации артели по производству расписных шкатулок из папье-маше. 4-5 декабря 1924 года была создана «Артель древней живописи», костяк которой составили бывшие иконописцы. В том же 1924 году работы палехских мастеров -- И. И. Голикова, И. М. Баканова, И. В. Маркичева и А. В. Котухина были показаны на XIV Международной художественной выставке в Венеции, вызвав большой интерес. В следующем, 1925 году «Артель древней живописи» получила Гран-при на Всемирной выставке декоративных искусств в Париже. После Парижа были успехи в Милане, Вене и Берлине. Иван Голиков расписал множество лакированных изделий -- от крупных ларцов до миниатюрных бисерниц. Все его работы являют собой образец тончайшего письма, превосходных композиционных решений и необычного подхода к былинным и литературным сюжетам. Многие из них он брал непосредственно из самой жизни; Голиков говорил: «Выхожу на улицу, наблюдаю за природой вечера, прежде чем начать писать картину, сначала переживу, весь уйду в тот мир, который нужно изображать ...» Тематика произведений: история, фольклор, литература, сельские мотивы, современная, революционная, битвы, тройки, орнаментальные мотивы («Адам в Раю», «Бесы», «Битва», «Борис Годунов», «Гулянье в лесу», «Гармонист», «Гадание на Ивана Купалу», «Герб СССР», «Дядюшка Яков», «Жнитво», «Звери», «Игра в шашки», «Карусель», «Коромысловая башня», «Лоэнгрин», «Масленица», «Наполеон», «Орнаменты», «Пахота на волах», «Петухи», «Пожар», «Слово о полку Игореве», «Сказка о рыбаке и рыбке», «Степан Разин», «Ромео и Джульетта», «Тройка красных коней», «Хоровод» и другие). Вершиной его творчества считаются миниатюры, созданные в 1932--33 годах для подарочного издания «Слова о полку Игореве», вышедшего в 1934 году в издательстве Academia. Первоначально работу хотели поручить разным художникам, но писатель А. М. Горький настоял, чтобы все миниатюры были выполнены одним Голиковым. Эти миниатюры впоследствии переиздавались два раза, а Ивану Голикову в 1935 году было присвоено звание заслуженного деятеля искусств России. Для его работ характерна смесь реальности со сказочной фантазией: на былинной красной тройке по заснеженному пейзажу у него может ехать не сказочный персонаж, а красноармеец в будёновке. Манеру отца переняли двое его сыновей, ставших палехскими мастерами лаковой живописи -- Георгий Иванович (1920--1941) и Николай Иванович Голиковы (1924-2011). Художником стал также его внук Юрий Николаевич Голиков. Художник скончался в 1937 году после тяжелой болезни. В центре Палеха Ивану Голикову установлен памятник. Именем художника также названа одна из улиц Палеха, а в 1968 году в Палехе открылся дом-музей Голикова. Произведения И. И. Голикова хранятся в Государственном Музее Палехского Искусства, Государственном Русском Музее, Государственной Третьяковской Галерее, Всероссийском Музее Декоративно-Прикладного и Народного Искусства, Музее народного искусства НИИ художественной промышленности, Государственном историко-художественном музее-заповеднике г.

        Slovo o polku Igoreve ("The Tale of Igor's Campaign")

      Academia, Moscow 1934 - A lavish reproduction of this anonymous Russian epic poem, believed (as the academic canon now feels) to date back to the late 12th century. Beautifully illustrated by Ivan Golikov in a nod to the old "Palekh" style of painting, with 10 mounted color plates (all with their original tissue guards and decorative, chromolithographed borders) complementing the text. Elephant folio, 49 pgs., striking decorative endpapers. A bright, very-well preserved copy. Clean, tight and solidly VG+. A slight, minor amount of scuffing to the panels, otherwise sharp as could be. And internally bright and very clean, with no markings of any kind. Very impressive early 20th century tribute --in the old Russian-- to Medieval Russia and its rich, complex folklore. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

He recalls: "Dr. Paul Wolff had skills which I found myself envying. Without any optical aid from the Leica viewfinder in the new (Telyt) reflex housing, he could dissect the surroundings with his naked eye in the search for a suitable subject and position. He invariably picked out the perfect spot for taking the picture with the focal length he had already selected". 63pps text in German, spotting to next two, followed by those glorious prints.

      S.V.U. Manes, Prague 1934 - A limited edition set of 36 caricatures, each 21 x 30cm. Remains of original grey paper wrappers. All housed in the publisher's original slipcase titled in black on a red label to the front cover. Signed and inscribed by Hoffmeister. Comprised of a half title page, a title page, a page containing three exhibition, a list of plates, limitation page and 36 numbered plates, being reviews of political and cultural figures including amongst others, Adolf Hitler, Jean Cocteau, James Joyce and Boris Pasternack. The half title page is Signed and inscribed by Hoffmeister to the cartoonist David Low: "For David Low / From his pupil / A Hoffmeister/ Praha 1947" Of the paper wraps, which are faded around the edges, only the front and rear panels remain, the spine panel having gone. Both panels are chipped with small loss mainly at the joints where the spine panel was. The original slipcase is rubbed on most edges and there is loss of the paper cover at the joint of the top and front panel, where the top panel is slightly pushed up. The spine is toned and has a few drip tide marks. The slipcase is still soundly bound. Over all, a very nice set, rare with the author's signature and sound provenance. Adolf Hoffmeister (1902-1973) was a writer and artist. He edited one of the main Czech daily newspapers, Lidové noviny(1928-30) and the main literary paper, Literární noviny (1930-32). And set up an anti-fascist magazine, Simplicus, in the 1930s after the German satiric magazine Simplicissimus was banned by the Nazis. During the war he was imprisoned by the Germans but managed to escape and make his way to the United States. After the war he became the Czech ambassador to France but as the regime grew more stalinist, he left the diplomatic service and became Professor at the Prague Academy of Decorative Arts, where he headed a special department for children¿s book illustrations and cartoons. After the collapse of the ¿Prague Spring¿ of the sixties he left his country for the second time and became Professor in Vincennes (France). In 1970 he returned to Prague and was declared a non-person. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Five original amateur black-and-white photographs of the so-called "Battle of Toledo," during the Toledo Auto-Lite Strike of 1934

      1934. Rare vernacular views of one of the key disputes in American labor history. The Toledo Auto-Lite Strike (April-June, 1934) marked a key victory for the American Federation of Labor and led to widespread unionization in the auto industry. It was also one of the bloodiest labor diputes of the 20th century, culminating in the "Battle of Toledo" on May 23-25, during which more than 5,000 picketers confronted company strikebreakers and Ohio National Guardsmen; by the time the melée ended, two strikers had been shot to death, another 15 wounded by bullets, and dozens of strikebreakers had received injuries in hand-to-hand combat and from hurled rocks, bricks, and debris. The Auto-Lite plant received extensive damage, and many automobiles were overturned by strikers and set afire. The current group of images records the aftermath of these violent incidents. The photographs show the extensive destruction to the Auto-Lite plant building, with many windows broken out, piles of broken bricks heaped against curbs, overturned vehicles and twisted barricades piled in the street. In several of the images National Guardsmen can be seen milling in the background; in one, a group of soldiers and company men occupies the foreground, with one soldier crouched at the ready behind a Browning machine gun. None of these images appears to have been previously published; they are almost certainly the work of either a strikebreaker or a company representative, as the close proximity of the photographer to National Guard troops and company men makes it seem very unlikely that (s)he was a picketer. Five original (vintage) b/w photographs on glossy photographic paper. Each image 11cm x 8cm (4-1/4" x 3-1/2") or the reverse. Each captioned identically in the same hand, in blue ink, on verso: "Electric Auto-lite Strike / Toledo, Ohio / 1934." Images well-printed, with good contrast; minimal fading; images clean on rectos and versos; Near Fine.

Publisher's orange cloth with black titles to spine and front board, in a wonderfully sinister pictorial dustjacket (possibly designed by 'olive', somewhat indecipherable artists facsimile signature to dustwrapper). Incredibly bright and clean internally, jacket shows equally well with just some creasing and nicking along the top and bottom edges, one small closed tear to the rear panel with a crease where the resulting flap had been folded over, now flattened and presentable, some slight rubbing to spine. A cracking copy, unusually bright and fresh.
