        Italia Imperiale (Imperial Italy)

      Popolo D'Italia Milan Popolo D'Italia (1937) Edizione Speciale Della Rivista illustrata del 'popolo d'italia' vg Elephant folio. Unpaginated. Gray and black decorated glossy boards with red, white and green lettering to cover. Expertly rebacked. Silk endpapers. "The best Italian photobook from the fascist era has to be Italia Imperiale. A 'special issue' of the magazine La Rivista illustrata del 'popolo d'italia' (Italian People's Illustrated Magazine), this enormous volume is the ultimate guide to the Italy of Benito Mussolini, the Italian equivalent of the great Russian propaganda photographic books. The book combines some excellent modernist photography with painted illustrations and photocollages, but its immediate impact derives from its size - a full-page photograph or montage on this scale has enormous power, especially the many splendid industrial and architectural photographs in the New Version style. Particularly notable is a close-up portrait of Il Duce, which is almost life-size, overbearing and impressive. Italia imperiale runs through the more-or-less standard iconography of propaganda books, beginning with history - close-ups of Roman ruins, an account of the Venetian and Genoese maritime republics - before introducing Il Capo and accounts of Italy's ill-fated colonialist military adventures of the 1930s in such places as Ethiopia and Somalia, before we are given extensive and interesting views of Italy under construction. There are many fine examples of architectural and industrial photography. The architectural imagery primarily features buildings in the 'fascist modern' style, that rigidly classical mode that seemed to be adopted by all the fascist countries, but nowhere more successfully than in Italy, its natural home." (Parr/Badger, The Photobook, vol. 1, p. 175). Photographs by Frederico Patellani, Stefano Bricarelli, Lucio Ridenti and Bruno Stefani. Illustrations by Marcello Nizzoli, Mario Sironi, Bramante Buffoni, Ruggero Micaelles, Erberto Carboni and Paolo Garretto. Reproductions of photographs in b/w & duo-tone, photographic reproductions of paintings and drawings in color & b/w. Manlio Morgagni was a personal friend of Mussolini's. He committed suicide when receiving the news of Mussolini's fall. Text in Italian. Some scuffing, scratching and minor staining on boards. Slight creasing to leaf preceding title-page and to last two leaves. Tight copy in very good condition. Extra shipping required. Elaborate Italian propaganda photobook of Mussolini's pre-war "Imperial Italy."

      Paris, 1937. Slipcased. Number 158 of 500 copies, the first 200 of which were reserved for the writers of the book.

The volume includes original prose, poetry, and illustrations by the leading writers and artists of France. There are thirty-one sections on various quarters, neighborhoods, gardens, avenues and boulevards, each with a short piece written by an eminent writer and engravings by two notable artists. For each section there is a full-page illustration by an artist associated with the area and a smaller one on the first page of the section by the other artist. Among the writers are Paul Valery, Raymond Escholier, Colette, Paul Claudel, Abel Bonnard, and Jules Romains. The participating artists are equally impressive, and include Matisse, Andre Derain, Raoul Dufy, Marie Laurencin, Pierre Bonnard, Edouard Vuillard, Jean Laboureur, and Andre Lhote. Each section is a separate folder with the full-page illustration of the following section as its last page. The folders are encased in a paper wrapper with the title and a color illustration on its cover. The entire production is housed in a chemise of dark blue paper covered boards with a red leather spine label which fits into a blue paper and linen slipcase. The slipcase is in very good consition with a few chips and bumps. The contents are also in very good condition; however, pages 286-288 are missing.

        Die Volks-Illustrierte, Jahrgang 1937.

      52 issues in 1 binding (complete run for the year 1937), Prag/Praha/Prague 1937. Folio (37,5x26,5 cm). Contemporary brown half-calf bindning. Clip in frontpage of issue 5, (1 leaf = 2 pages) missing in no. 14; frontpage to no. 37 missing; 2 pages missing in no. 43; frontpage of no. 43 missing. 1 sheet loosened. With 29 (of 32) full-page photomontages by John Heartfield. Well-preserved copy.. Scarce. The weekly German-language left-wing paper Die Volks-Illustrierte was the exiled continuation of the German Socialist publication AIZ (Arbeiter Illustrierte Zeitung). For obvious reasons, the editorial staff fled to Prague in the early spring of 1933 and continued the publication under a new name and with much lesser print run. The 1937 annual highly reflects the civil war in Spain and the Japanese atrocities in China. The Nazi rule in Germany dominates the contents, off course; and the Czech authorities were regularly confronted with an official German demand of taking action against the paper. ** The 1937 annual contains a range of outstanding anti-Nazi photomontages by John Heartfield, among others "Blut für Eisen", "Der friedfertige Raubfisch", "Tod dem Kriegspolypen!", "Ob Nazimann, ob Samurai, es ist dieselbe Melodei" and the almost prophetic vision "Mahnung".*** John Heartfield (1891-1968) was born as Helmut Herzfeld and changed his name during WWI in reaction to the Anglofobia of wartime Germany. He became a leading figure in Dada movement but got his everlasting reputation through his left-wing, anti-Nazi photomontages

        THE YEARS

      Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at The Hogarth Press London: Published by Leonard and Virginia Woolf at The Hogarth Press, 1937. FIRST EDITION. An Unusually Fine Copy of a Major Novel 191 x 127 mm (7 1/2 x 5"). 2 p.l., 469 pp. Publisher's light green cloth and printed dust jacket.Kirkpatrick A22a. Very faint uniform darkening to the jacket spine, otherwise AN ESPECIALLY FINE COPY IN A VERY FINE JACKET, virtually fautless inside and out. A major work in the Virginia Woolf canon, and the first novel by her to appear after "The Waves" of 1931, "The Years" is somewhat less experimental in style, making it one of the author's most readable works. It chronicles the lives of a group of siblings, beginning with their childhood in the 1880s and continuing for half a century. One sister becomes a brilliant society hostess, another turns suffragette; one brother becomes a scholar, another a soldier. The resemblance to the author's own large family of siblings is hardly coincidental, so that much of the work reflects the responses of Woolf and her family to rapidly changing times. Reviewing the work when it was first published, Peter Monro Jack in the "New York Times" wrote, "This is . . . lyricism in the form of a novel, with flying buttresses to sustain its airy and often absent-minded inspirations. There is the minimum of substructure. But there is everywhere, on one lovely page after another, . . . writing which reveals a kind of feeling that is more illuminating than a dozen well-made and documented novels. Mrs. Woolf has made, or unmade, her novel in the form of a poem or a piece of music." The dust jacket issued with this volume is even more difficult than usual to find in fine condition, as it is here, because its spine almost always turns rather quickly to an unpleasant brown.

        Micky Maus Zeitung. - Nummer 15.

Tintenfleck, durchgehende Knickspur in Längs- u. Quer-Richtung)., Zeitschrift Nummer 15 dieser frühen deutschen "Micky Maus Publikation", übersetzt aus dem Englischen von Martha Ehrat-Bollmann. Der Zürcher Verlag Bollmann erwarb 1936, wohl um über die allgemeine Wirtschaftskrise hiwegzukommen gleichzeitig in Paris beim europäischen Vertreter des Disney-Verlages die Hauptlizenz und in Italien bei Mondadori, der damals die Comics unter dem Namen "Topolino" in italienischer Sprache veröffentlichte, die Unterlizenzen, diese viel zu teuer trugen zum Misserfolg der Reihe "Micky-Maus-Wunderbücher" bei. Der Preis der Bände bis zu sieben Schweizer Franken war während der allgemeinen Krise viel zu hoch und die finanzielle Situation konnte auch mit der halbmonatlichen Herausgabe der vorliegenden Zeitschrift, die zwischen 25 und 30 Rappen zu haben war, nicht verbessert werden. Die Produktion wurde nach dem 18. Heft und dem 7. Buch eingestellt, nachdem der Verlag erfolglos in Deutschland und Österreich nach Partnern gesucht hatte. Im Nazideutschland war die Publikation dieses amerikanischen Imports unerwünscht, obwohl Joseph Goebbels dem Führer 1937 18 Micky-Maus-Filme zu Weihnachten geschenkt haben soll und "sie insgeheim Spass an den Zeichentrickfilmen von Walt Disney hatten" (Laqua, Carsten: Wie Micky unter die Nazis fiel. Rowohlt, 1992). Gefaltetes Exemplar, sons wohl erhalten. Résumé: Early Micky Mouse in German printed in Switzerland. - Folded copy, otherwise in a good condition.
