        SSSR na Stroike" (USSR in Construction) No. 12, (December) 1935: (dedicated to the brave Soviet paratroopers) [Parachute Issue]

      (The State Publishing House of Graphic Arts), M (Moscow) 1935 - Folio (16 1/2 x 11 3/4"). Unpaginated. Original illustrated wrappers, with red and black lettering on front cover. "USSR in Construction" was a stunning photographic propaganda magazine published in the Soviet Union from 1930 to 1941, and briefly in 1949. It was published in Russian, French, English, German, with a Spanish-language edition added in 1938. The magazine's self-proclaimed aim was to "reflect in photography the whole scope and variety of the construction work now going on the USSR." It was conceived and designed to be an important foreign relations tool and to portray a positive image of the developments occurring in the Soviet Union to the rest of the world. "USSR in Construction" informed readers abroad of the rapid construction and industrialization taking place within the Soviet Union and depicted the nation as a leading industrial power. From a design perspective, the magazine was a fascinating example of early 20th-century photomontage, with its recurrent use of inserts, and spectacular fold-out pages. The method of printing used for the printing was rotogravure, a type of intaglio printing process, in order to create extremely high quality duotone images (in blue, green, salmon, and olive). With this striking Russian-language issue of "USSR in Construction" dedicated to the "brave Soviet paratroopers," renown Soviet artist Aleksander Rodchenko* and his wife Varvara Stepanova introduced a circular design as the basis for their page layout, thus allowing them to accomodate a variety of scenes from the parachutists' everyday activities as well as Communist political messages. This issue is complete with the parachute fold-out, and the origami-folded centerfold depicting Stalin surrounded by half a circle, which in turn is superimposed over a triangle-shaped image of clouds with numerous parachutists floating down.Discoloration and minor foxing along upper margin of covers. Moderate creasing along spine. Tiny closed tears along fore-edge of back cover, with previous owner's inscription (in Russian) on upper margin. Tip of corners slightly creased throughout (not affecting text or images). Text in Russian. Wrappers in overall fair, interior in good+ to very good, parachute fold-out and origami-folded centerfold in very good condition. *Aleksander Mikhailovich Rodchenko (1891-1956) was a Russian artist, sculptor, photographer and graphic designer. He was one of the founders of constructivism and Russian design; he was married to the artist Varvara Stepanova. Rodchenko was one of the most versatile Constructivist and Productivist artists to emerge after the Russian Revolution. He worked as a painter and graphic designer before turning to photomontage and photography. His photography was socially engaged, formally innovative, and opposed to a painterly aesthetic. Concerned with the need for analytical-documentary photo series, he often shot his subjects from odd angles - usually high above or down below - to shock the viewer and to postpone recognition. He wrote: "One has to take several different shots of a subject, from different points of view and in different situations, as if one examined it in the round rather than looked through the same key-hole again and again."

        [FIRST BOOK BY LANDAU] Elektroprovodimost' metallov [i.e. The Metal Conductivity]

      Kharkiv: ONTI, 1935. 60 pp. 18x13 cm. 1 of 3000 copies. Original publisher's wrappers. Front wrapper is slightly rubbed. Otherwise a near fine copy, partly uncut. Extremely rare. The first printed book by Nobel laureate Lev Davydovich Landau (1908-1968) best known for his contributions in the field of condensed matter physics. When he was 24 years old he was appointed as a head of the theoretic department of Kharkiv Physico-Technic University where he started to give seminars. This book was published during Landau's years in Kharkiv. It was three years later when Landau was caught by KGB handling anti-Soviet brochures that were labeling Stalin as fascist. Pyotr Kapitsa managed to save young talented physicist from inevitable imprisonment - that was almost impossible in the late 1930s. Despite all that Lev Landau continued his work on the different states of the matter to come to revolutionary results in his research of liquid helium in 1940s. No copies found outside of Russia.

Colour frontispiece and 11 colour plates mounted on heavy white paper with captioned tissue guards, black and white illustrations in the text, by Rackham. Slight signs of wear at extremities of joints. An excellent copy. Deluxe edition, number 3 of 460 copies signed by the artist. This is one of ten "special copies" reserved by the publisher from the total edition, presented in a specially commissioned luxury binding and including a delightful full-page original pen-and-ink and watercolour drawing by Rackham (signed "Arthur Rackham 1935"), showing a seated elderly man reading a hair-raising story, while his black cat spits at the Devil, who emerges from behind his armchair. Describing his artistic method for these "specials", Rackham pointed out that "my little sketches must inevitably be of a light hearted or joking nature... They have to be spontaneous and free handed. The nature of the paper is such that there can be no preparatory drawing and no alterations". Riall comments that "From The King of the Golden River [1932], Harrap issued nine or ten copies, seven being for sale, of a special issue of the first limitation numbers of the limited edition" (A New Bibliography of Arthur Rackham, 1994, p. xvi).

        Agents And Patients (Presentation Copy To Constant Lambert :Signed And Inscribed By The Author)

      The First UK printing published by Duckworth in 1936. The BOOK is in Very Good condition.Three pages of publishers' adverts at rear as called for.Some ghosting to the spine as usually encountered but the gilt titling remains bright.Boards lightly marked in places.The text block is toned and there is some light spotting to the page edges in places.The WRAPPER is complete and is in VERY GOOD condition.Some edge wear with rubbing with small losses at the spine ends and corners (see Images).The spine is lightly toned.The remarkable Misha Black designed wrapper artwork looks striking in the removable Brodart archival cover.Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the front free endpaper: ''For Constant and Florence, with the author's love, January 8th 1936, 'Et Ego in Arcadia Vixi''.The recipients were Constant and Florence Lambert.As the date is so early,it is highly likely that this copy was inscribed either on the publication day or certainly very close to it.Constant was a composer and author who was the prototype of the character Hugh Moreland in Powell's 'A Dance to the Music of Time'. The latin quotation is probably a reference to 'Et in Arcadia Ego' (also known as Les bergers d'Arcadie or The Arcadian Shepherds) which is a 1637-38 painting by Nicolas Poussin. It depicts a pastoral scene with idealized shepherds from classical antiquity clustering around an austere tomb.The twelve volume cycle of novels 'A Dance to the Music of Time' is also thought to have been inspired by the painting of the same name by Nicolas Poussin.Housed in a custom solander box.A wonderful association copy of a scarce early Powell title.

        Painting of an Arabian horse. [Krakow], 1935.

      1935. Oil on panel. 40 x 49.5 cm (frame: 52 x 63 cm). Fine original oil painting by the aristocratic Polish painter Wojciech Kossak (1856-1942): a grey Arab stallion standing near an oasis with palm trees, with a mosque in the background; within a contemporary ornamented gilt frame. Wojciech Kossak was a Polish painter of portraits and historical scenes, including battle scenes, illustrating and depicting the history of Polish armed struggle and notable Polish battles of Central and Eastern Europe against the foreign oppressors, especially the period of the Napoleonic wars and the November uprising. Among his most famous paintings are "The Raclawice Panorama" (1893-94) and the battle at the Berezyna (1895-96). He was member of the celebrated Kossak family of painters and writers, the son of painter Juliusz Kossak (1824-1899), the twin brother of freedom fighter Tadeusz Kossak, and the father of painter Jerzy Kossak (1886-1955). Wojciech Kossak's historical painting was very different in style and subject matter from that of his predecessor Jan Matejko. Kossak belonged to a new generation of Polish battle-scene artists influenced by the work of his father Juliusz. His development to a more 'impressionistic' style during his later years is beautifully demonstrated in this painting of a proud grey Arab stallion firmly standing on a sandy ground on which the oriental high sun throws its short shadow, near an oasis with palm trees and in front of a reddish mosque, surrounded by a fortified wall. - In very good condition. With a 'Certyfikat' issued by Galeria 'Zak', Warsaw & Kolobrzeg (Cezary & Jozef Zakowics).

        Collection of Letters from Friderike Zweig

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. A small collection of interesting autograph letters in English from the first wife of the important Austrian novelist and biographer who was one of the most important writers in German in the inter-war period. One letter is addressed to a literary agent and written on the Zweigs' Salzburg letterhead, dated September 20, 1935. Four further letters, from 1944-1953, were written in New York after Friderike Zweig's emigration and are addressed to Shea Tennenbaum [also spelled Tenenbaum], a Yiddish writer and journalist who was evidently an admirer of Stefan Zweig's work. Also included is a newspaper clipping from the New York Post reporting on Zweig's suicide in 1942 and interviewing Friderike Zweig: "though she was overcome by grief she was not surprised by the news that he and his second wife had ended their lives yesterday."<br>The letters are written in pen on various sizes of notepaper and are overall in fine condition, with some light age wear, folds and light toning. All but the 1935 letter include the original envelopes, two with the return address of the Writers' Service Center, and some of which bear later notes in another hand, some in Hebrew. <br>In her letter to a Miss Strassman [1 p., September 20, 1935], Zweig expresses pleasure at their meeting: "...My husband too was very fond of meeting you." She notes that they have not received a book and requests assistance in procuring "the collection of 'Hausexemplare' which you saw in my husband's room... He just left me again for Paris and London."  She further adds, "May I bother you still with something else: my daughter should like to publish her photos of Toscanini and other artists famous in U.S.A. in American magazines and we should be glad to have a help." In Friderike Zweig's first letter to Tennenbaum [4 pp., March 3, 1944 - NB. Full text available on request], she thanks him for sending his article [in Yiddish] about Stefan Zweig: "I shall ask somebody to read it to me, and the gratefulness for your writing will make it easy to me to understand this reach [rich] and powerful language." She writes that she is enclosing another article about her ex-husband from the magazine Menorah, which she says is full of "lies" and offensive to Zweig's memory. This article, by a "Miss A.," is almost certainly Hannah Arendt's scathing 1943 review of Zweig's World of Yesterday, titled "Portrait of a Period," in which she attacked Zweig for remaining apolitical in the face of antisemitism. Friderike defends her husband passionately: "That he did not mix in politics just on opposite reason, namely his idea that he can damage the Jewish cause in speaking to [sic] loudly as a Jew... His whole work was to defend the rights of the humbles [sic] against some oppression and the devotion for greatness not in sake of fame." She further criticizes the journalist: "This woman - in the shadow of a grave - turns the words in the mouth of the most honorable man, in making him part of that, what he himself condemned..." and goes on to ask Tennenbaum to write a letter to the editor of the magazine, as "My health is not so good, so I cannot risk to get too excited in writing to this woman."  In her next letter [4 pp., September 21, 1944], Friderike thanks Tennenbaum for sending another article [in Yiddish], saying that she will ask a friend to read it and tell her what it says: "it will be a pleasure for me, to hear what you say." She goes on to ask after a Graziana, perhaps Tenenbaum's wife, and ends the letter with warm wishes. Following this, she writes again [postmarked December 6, 1944], sending Tenenbaum the program for an American-European Friendship event on December 16, 1944 and writing on the verso that he should come "and bring Graciana along." The final note from Friderike Zweig [3 pp. on very small notepaper, December 1952] thanks Tennenbaum for his contribution to the festschrift for her 70th birthday. "I nearly could understand everything and will have a friend to tell me every word."  On the verso, an autograph note to Tenenbaum from Harry Zohn, German-English translator, scholar of German literature, and editor of the festschrift, mentions he is sending Tenenbaum a copy.<br>Friderike Zweig, who was married to Zweig from 1920 to 1938, was herself a writer and translator. After their divorce, they remained good friends and were in close contact through letters, even after Zweig fled Europe for Brazil, where, with his second wife, he committed suicide in 1942. Friderike emigrated to the United States in 1940, where she founded the Writers Service Center, an organization to aid European refugees, and also chaired the American-European Friendship Association. Throughout her life she remained a great proponent of her husband's life and work, serving as the honorary president of the International Stefan Zweig Society, and writing two books about his life.<br>"Shea (short for Joshua) Tenenbaum (1910â??1989) was born in Bobrinik near Lublin, the youngest of 12 siblings. He became a typesetter at age 14 and began publishing at 16... Before coming to the U.S. in 1934 he lived in various cities in Europe... Like many Yiddish writers, he worked for some years in New York; he then spent time in Denver recovering from tuberculosis. From there he traveled to California, but he missed the cultural life of New York and returned after a year. He received the National Jewish Book Award in 1985 for From Ash and Fire Is Your Crown." (Pakn Treger, Magazine of the Yiddish Book Center, no. 60, Fall 2009.)

The correspondence is lively and extensive, with frequent mentions of Oscar Wilde and the ongoing struggle for his own legacy and reputation, waged over several books and plays by Douglas and others. He also mentions his struggles with American publishers, alludes to other writers, and makes occasional reports on the Second World War. The recipient of these books and letters was Baroness Hazel Hergenhahn, a well-travelled Californian lady of extensive cultural acquaintances. These editions, published together, constitute Douglas's consolidation of four decades of poetic output. The rear panels of both jackets carry an appreciation of Douglas' poetry by Thomas Earle Welby. Very scarce together with the dust jackets and inscribed.

        Autograph letter signed ("Freud"). [Vienna], 5. XI. 1935.

      1935. 4to. 2 pp. On stationery printed "Prof. Dr. Freud Wien, IX., Berggasse 19". To Stefan Zweig, about the Nobel Prize, Shakespeare, and his "Moses and Monotheism", thanking him for his letter and for the cutting from the Sunday Times, observing that his article is the declaration of a friend, noting his surprise to learn that he has been awarded the Nobel Prize on the promptings of the Vienna University, referring to the opposition to him when he was awarded the Frankfurt Goethe Prize in 1930, reproaching himself for expatiating during his visit on the contents of his Moses, instead of letting him talk about his work and plans, stating that Moses shall never see the light of day again, concluding in a postscript by asking him whether he is interested in the debate concerning the identity of Shakespeare, and admitting that he is virtually convinced that Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford, was in fact Shakespeare. - Despite the views expressed by Freud here, "Der Mann Moses und die monotheistische Religion", his last completed book, was in fact published four years later, in 1939. Although nominated twelve times for the Nobel Prize for Medicine, Freud was never awarded that honour, the Nobel committee being of the opinion that his work was of no proven scientific value. Romain Rolland's nomination of him for the Literature Prize in 1936 was also unsuccessful. - Horizontal fold, some light creasing and slight damage to edges.

        USSR Architecture [and] Construction of Moscow].

      Moskva - 1938 1935 - USSR Architecture (Organ Soyuza sovetskikh arkhitektorov, Moskva, 1936-37): 21 issues (1936: issues No3 - 12; 1937: issues No1 - 11), complete with all ll., original wrappers; occasional spotting and soiling, some occasional light mold, heavier to last 15 ll. of issue 9 for 1937, margins and spines of wrappers slightly chipped. Construction of Moscow (Mossovet, Moskva, 1935-38): No6 and 17-18 for 1935; No4-8, 10-12 and 22 for 1936; No6, 12, 22 for 1937 and No16 for 1938, most issues with plates, including some folding, original wrappers; some light marginal waterstaining in several issues, light soiling. A collection of issues of the two famous Soviet architectural periodicals that together provide an insight into the unique marriage of the architectural aspirations and ideology of the Stalin's epoch. The "USSR architecture" was an illustrated monthly periodical that was published from 1933 until 1992 with some interruptions. It included overviews of the domestic architecture, building projects as well as articles on European and American architecture. The tone of reviews obeys a strict ideological framework. Articles about projects by Soviet architects are impregnated with pompous praise, whereas many of those reviewing architecture abroad overuse such notions as "battle", "controversy of capitalism" and "crises". One of the most interesting projects that is featured in three issues offered here (No7 for the year 1936, No 5 for 1937 and No11 for 1937) is the famous USSR pavilion at the International Exposition dedicated to Art and Technology in Modern Life held in Paris in 1937. Designed by the B.M. Iofan the building was lined with Samarkand marble. The entrance to the pavilion was decorated with bas-reliefs by sculptor I.M. Chaikoff featuring the coats of arms of the USSR and 11 Union republics. The most notable part of the pavilion was the 24-meter sculptural group "A Worker and a Collective Farm Girl", made of stainless steel after a design by Vera Mukhina, which symbolised the achievements of the socialist industrialisation. The other periodical "The Construction of Moscow" was founded in 1923 and often featured stellar avant-garde designs by Gustav Klutsis, Vasilii Elkin, and El Lissitzky. It ran through the 1930s, but progressively became less and less modernist in terms of both form and content as time went on. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Extensive autograph on typed letter by V. Meyerhold

      Borovikha 1935 - Borovikha, the 5th of December of 1935. 6 pp. 30?21 ?m. This letter is Meyerhold's response to memo sent to him by accountant-general of Meyerhold Theatre about employees getting personal salaries. This letter is addressed to Vladimir Glinsky (1888-1938), assistant director for the Theatre. The handwritten part is dedicated to personal salaries of workers and actors, first of all, Zinaida Raich, Igor' Iliinsky, Mikhail Tsarev, S. Khmel'nitsky et al. Vsevolod Meyerhold (1874-1940) was a Russian theatrical producer, director, and actor whose provocative experiments in nonrealistic theatre made him one of the productive forces in modern theatre. Meyerhold founded his own theatre in 1920, which was known from 1923 as the Meyerhold Theatre until 1938. He inspired revolutionary artists and filmmakers such as Sergei Eisenstein, who studied with him. In the early 1930s, when Joseph Stalin repressed all avant-garde art and experimentation, his works were proclaimed antagonistic and alien to the Soviet people. Before his death he was tortured, and executed by the state (cleared of all charges in 1955). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Dante's Inferno (Original screenplay for the 1935 film)

      Fox Film Corporation 1935 - Final Script for the 1935 film, "Dante's Inferno," directed by Harry Lachman, written for the screen by Philip Klein and Robert M. Yost, and starring Spencer Tracy and Claire Trevor. Carnival barker Spencer Tracy befriends an elderly concessionaire and turns the old man's picturesque but stodgy display depicting Dante's Inferno into a major attraction, complete with full orchestra and scantily clad "devil girls." He eventually buys up the rest of the carnival, using cold-blooded tactics that result in the suicide of a fellow concessionaire, and within five years is a millionaire tycoon of the entertainment industry. In an important sequence, for nearly ten minutes, the movie audience is treated to a lavish depiction of hell wherein Tracy is warned of the dangers of hell, magnificently photographed by cinematographer Rudolph Mate. Although the Fox Film Corporation produced the film, it was distributed after Fox's merger with Twentieth Century, which began trading on May 31, 1935. Green titled wrappers, with a holograph pencil notation of project No. 1107, dated 11/26/34, and with credits in manual type for Klein and Yost. Title page is integral first page of text. 131 leaves, mimeograph, with several change pages, all dated 11/28/34. Laid in are 3 pages of additional scenes constituting the film's finale, titled "Finish." Pages and wrapper Very Good plus, with some flaking to the yapped edges of the wrapper, bound with three gold brads. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Liberty Landing. An outline of a plan for the unification of transportation facilities for the Port of New York.

      None. 1935 - I recently uncovered an interesting, unpublished and probably not-acceptable engineering report to extend the ports capacity in the Hudson River at New York City--the ports of the area being famously over-busy for a long period of time, especially right before World War II. Charles Palliser and Frederick W. Capon presented a proposal in 1935 for a unification of the port and airport facilities to take care of the overcrowding and overworked problem. (Mimeographed?) 1935. 13x8.5", cover sheet; 1 sheet with photograph of drawing, 4 leaves of text. Staple bound at top. Good condition. Provenance: from the Library of Congress, via the Copyright Office. +++What they came up with was Liberty Landing, a mile-long and half-mile-wide facility that nearly bumped into the Statue of Liberty (and hence its name). The plan called for backfilling the &#147;flats&#148; that were just south of Jersey City, as &#147;the natural formation of these were very favorable&#148;, which meant that the airport-port combo would extend all the way into the harbor to the edge of the channel, which would put it further out than the Statue of Liberty, which would also be just hundreds of feet away from the end of the north runway. Also attached to the backfill and new land would be a one-mile-long floating dock. Oh my! The floating island would also have vehicular tunnels that connected it to Staten Island and the Battery. There were facilities for seaplanes, airplanes, railroads, dirigibles, and trucks, plus a military installation, a custom&#146;s house and the US Mail Service, so that all commerce would converge at this one point, which sounds interesting (for about 20 seconds). +++This is a good candidate for the &#147;Better Left Undone&#148; award for 1935. As I look at the photograph of the aerial view of the plan it strikes me that if the designers increased the surface area by only 125% or so they could&#146;ve connected the new facility with Governor&#146;s Island AND Brooklyn, building a land bridge from Jersey City to Coney Island&#151;a superbly bad idea to cap an already strongly bad idea. The report is called, simply, Liberty Landing, and published by the architect in Jackson Heights, NYC, 16 September 1935. This is also the U.S. Copyright Deposit copy (accepted 10 October 1935), which is where the history of this project ends. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        [Two Leaves of Revised Typescript for:] "THE MILLIONAIRESS."

      [Np, nd]. Two leaves, quarto, on blue-green stock. With manuscript additions in red and black ink. Folded at one time for mailing, otherwise very good. Two leaves of an unidentified draft of "The Millionairess," annotated with revisions by Shaw in his distinctive hand. The leaves are denoted as "Act 1. Page 138," and "Act II, Page 162" (the former typed, the latter in Shaw's hand). The typed portions are themselves noted as for substitution in an earlier draft and are identified as such in Shaw's hand on one leaf and in typescript on another. Both leaves bear his manuscript direction to substitute a line of dialogue for Epifania in place of lines 3, 4, 5, & 6 on page 156. The play was not published in book form until 1935 (in Trebitsch's German translation) and 1936, in English, with two other plays, by Constable. The 1938 publication in volume 33 of the Collected Edition was revised by Shaw, and he adapted it for broadcast by the BBC in 1942.

Large quarto (11 x 8 5/8 inches; 279 x 218 mm.). 83, [1, blank] pp. Nine full-page color plates.Publisher's cream tweed cloth flecked with royal blue. Front cover and spine decoratively lettered in blue. A near fine copy.The plates depict various relationships between mythical deities and humans, most of which end tragically?The plates:1. Aphrodite and Adonis2. Selene and Edymion3. Pluto and Persephone4. Psyche and Cerberus5. Pan and Syrinx6. Orpheus and Eurydice7. Jason and Medea8. Herakles and Deianeira9. Perseus and Andromeda"The illustrations in this book have already appeared as front pages in the American weekly.A book with coloured pictures and an illustrated book are not quite the same thing.One may say that each has its own function and its own appeal.This is presented as a book with coloured pictures." (Edmund Dulac, 1935 on verso of title-page)."?Meanwhile work for American Weekly continued with the publication in February 1931 of Perseus and Andromeda, the first cover for what was to be Dulac's largest series for the magazine; eleven illustrations of tales from Ovid under the title of Love Stories the Ancients Believed In. The pictures portrayed the lovers themselves at the most dramatic moment in the story, but, with the exceptions of the killing of Nessus in Hercules and Dejanira, and the exciting figure of Perseus sweeping down to kill the beast attacking Andromeda, they seemed a departure from Dulac's high standards. The fault lay in his attempt to portray his characters, Pan and Syrinx, Circe and Ulysses, and Pluto and Persephone, as eternal symbols in the manner of Tanglewood Tales, but the larger size of the watercolors meant that his remote, impersonal approach would not work as effectively as in the book, so that the figures appeared posed, and the histrionic gestures and staring eyes, meant to show deep emotion, had no interest. Nevertheless, the illustrations were popular enough to be reprinted in Good Housekeeping with an accompanying text by Hugh Ross Williamson, and, in 1935, were compiled in book form under the title Gods and Mortals in Love. Dulac designed a special cover with a silver Cupid and lettering in the style of an ancient Greek inscription." (White, pp. 144-148).Hughey, 84; White, 39.

(= Opus VII der Einhorn-Presse / \"Als Umrahmungen zweite >Indische Fuge< über das Thema der Âtman im Herzen und im Weltall\". - Als Handschrift. Einmaliger Sonderdruck der EINHORN - PRESSE). Wikipedia: Melchior Lechter (geb. 2. Oktober 1865 in Münster (Westfalen); gest. 8. Oktober 1937 in Raron, Kanton Wallis, Schweiz) war ein deutscher Maler, Graphiker und Buchkünstler. Als Monogramm (ML) vor allem bei seinen buchkünstlerischen Arbeiten benutzte er den Buchstaben \"M\" mittig geschnitten vom Buchstaben \"L\"...- Mit 14 begann er eine Ausbildung zum Glasmaler. Nach der Arbeit belegte er bei der Münsterschen Kunstgenossenschaft Kurse an der Zeichen-, Mal- und Modellierschule. Nach der Ausbildung ging er 1884 nach BERLIN, wo er an der HOCHSCHULE DER BILDENDEN KÜNSTE studierte und nebenbei als Glasmaler arbeitete. Nach dem Ende des Studiums malte Lechter zunächst Gebrauchskunst, etwa für Werbemittel, bis Fritz GURLITT 1896 eine Ausstellung einrichtete. Lechter schaffte damit den Durchbruch seiner Kunst in Berlin. Prägend war die Begegnung mit Stefan GEORGE, für den Lechter viele Bücher im Georg BONDI Verlag buchkünstlerisch gestaltete. - Er erhielt 1898 von Jakob PALLENBERG den Auftrag zur Ausgestaltung des Pallenberg-Saales mit Glasfenstern und Mosaiken am Kölner MUSEUM für Angewandte Kunst. Für die 1899/1900 ausgeführte Gesamtgestaltung erhielt er 1900 auf der PARISER WELTAUSSTELLUNG einen Grand Prix...- Am 30. September 1910 reiste Lechter mit Karl WOLFSKEHL nach Indien ab. Lechter begab sich dort auf eine fünfmonatige Reise über CEYLON, MADRAS und ADYAR, das Zentrum der Adyar-TG. Dabei führte er Tagebuch. Dieses wurde nach seiner Rückkehr in kleiner Auflage (333 Exemplare) als zweiter Druck der von Lechter gegründeten EINHORN PRESSE mit besonderem Buchschmuck veröffentlicht.

        Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination.

      London: George G. Harrap & Company, 1935. First signed limited edition of this Arthur Rackham. Quarto, original full vellum, titles and tooling to the spine and front panel, top edge gilt, pictorial endpapers. Illustrations by Arthur Rackham including 12 tipped-in color plates, 17 black & white illustrations. Signed by Arthur Rackham on the limitation page, as issued. In the original publisher's slipcase with printed spine label, one of 460 copies. In near fine condition with a touch of rubbing. Uncommon in this condition and in the original slipcase. The title "Tales of Mystery and Imagination" was first used by The World's Classics and printed by Grant Richard in 1902. The title of this collection was then adopted by Padraic Colum in 1908 in view of the growing reputation of Poe's taste for suspense, especially in the context of what his French critic M. Brunetiere called events "on the margin" of life. The original collection, in keeping with its title, deliberately excluded Poe's poems, comedies and essays. There are twenty-five tales including The Pit and the Pendulum, The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Fall of the House of Usher and The Descent into the Maelstrom.
