        Dojmy z SSSR [Impressions of the USSR]

      Exod, Brno 1934 - SIGNED. 165pp. Octavo [22.5 cm] in French wraps. Light edgewear to wraps; crease to spine; interior is unmarked. Illustrated with 15 woodcuts by the author, each protected by a laid-in sheet of glassine. Signed by Bochorakova-Dittrichova in pencil on limitation page and handnumbered 136 of an edition of 200 copies.An illustrated account of the author's travels to Leningrad, St. Petersburg, Moskow, Kharkiv, and Kiev. Bochorakova-Dittrichova also devotes a chapter each to a collective farm and the Dnieper Hydroelectric Station.Helena Bochorakova-Dittrichova (1894-1980) was the first female wordless novelist and the only woman to work in this medium during its heyday. She was born in the Moravian region of what is now the Czech Republic and spent most of her life in Brno, the Moravian capital. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and in 1923 received a government scholarship to study printmaking in Paris. Bochorakova-Dittrichova's unpublished wordless novel Malirka Na Cestach [The Artist on Her Journey] recounts this period in her life. In Paris, she first encountered the wordless novels of Flemish artist Frans Masereel, the originator of the form, and was inspired to create her own. Over the course of her long career, Bochorakova-Dittrichova published several wordless novels, along with travelogues and historical works. She also worked as a printmaker and illustrator, and was highly regarded in her native land, though largely unknown elsewhere. This changed in 2014, when the National Museum of Women in the Arts held an exhibition of her work entitled "The First Woman Graphic Novelist: Helena Bochorakova-Dittrichova," and this important artist finally began to gain global recognition. Her work, however, is still not widely available. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Resurrexit Dominus. LIMITED FIRST EDITION FROM THE PUBLISHER'S OWN LIBRARY.

      1934 - Privately Printed [By Boriswood though not stated] Limited to 110 copies Signed and Numbered by Hanley on limitation page. This being number 4 being from the Publisher's own library and bought by us from the grand-daughter of the original publishers. Large 8vo. Bound in vellum with leather lettering piece. Top edge gilt, others deckled (uncut). A Fine copy in the original acetate wrapper. Loosely inserted are some 'obscene' passages typed onto two pieces of paper with page references probably used by the family for the court case that was running at this time over "Boy". See notes below. Undoubtedly the scarcest of Hanley's books, private published by his trade publisher, Boriswood, who held the manuscript for three years because of its controversial subject matter (the rape of a 14-year-old girl by a priest). During this period Hanley and Boriswood were being sued in connection with the publication of "Boy", which suit they lost. The publishers Boriswood were advised that, owing to the book's reference to 'intimacy between members of the male sex', any defence against prosecution was futile. In March 1935 Boriswood pleaded guilty of "uttering and publishing an obscene libel" and paid a substantial fine. While Resurrexit Dominus was not officially suppressed, as was "Boy", copies of the book were, generally, not available. The title still remains out of print. Gibbs A11a.

        Man Ray: Photographs 1920-1934 Paris; Photographies 1920-1934 Paris

      Hartford Connecticut:: James Thrall Soby: Random House, NY & Cahiers d'Art, Paris:, n.d. [1934].. First edition [spuriously stated 'Second Edition'].. Comb binding. Very Good. [vi], 104 [+8], [ii]. Very good copy with head of binder damaged. Plates and text clean and unmarked, corners good; small tears to binder holes at spine ends. Residue of small pencilled price to corner of title page. Faint greying of some white page areas from offsetting. 31x24.5cms, in the original white plastic comb binding. The Man Ray colour photograph front cover is clean and complete, with minimal (c.1mm) scuffs to the edges, a crease across the upper corner, tiny creases adjacent to the spine, a few short rubbed striations to the top edge, and one or two lesser imperfections. The white rear cover has a few minor marks, a 5mm closed tear to the leading edge, and a small loss of laminate to the bottom corner. The top two circlets of the binder have gone, and the third is present but detached. Text in French and English throughout (German and English in the case of Duchamp). The 'Deuxieme Edition' / 'Second Edition' printed on the title pages of unsold (first edition) copies was the publisher's ruse in the hope of boosting sales. Man Ray's introduction is set at the beginning of the book, and the four contributors' texts, introducing the groupings of the photographs, are titled: The visages of woman; Men before the mirror; When things dream; and Rayographs 1921-1928. A legendary production - and a very satisfactory copy.
