After seeing John Willard's play, THE CAT AND THE CANARY in 1922 she became thriller-concious, and in 1927 published her first mystery as Anthony Gilbert. For many years Gilbert's true identity was kept secret and most readers assumed that the author was a man."

Watkins-Pitchford. First edition. Denys James Watkins-Pitchford MBE (1905 - 1990) was a British naturalist, an illustrator and a children's author under the pseudonym BB. He won the 1942 Carnegie Medal for British children's books. His elder brother, Engel, died at the age of thirteen. Denys was himself considered to be delicate as a child, and because of this was educated at home, while his younger twin, Roger, was sent away to school. He spent a great deal of time on his own, wandering through the fields, and developed a love of the outdoors, which was to influence his writing. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and drawing; all these things were to influence his writing greatly. He wrote under the nom de plume of 'BB', a name based on the size of lead shot he used to shoot geese, but he maintained the use of his real name as that of the illustrator in all his books. He later illustrated books by other writers, and sold his own paintings locally. Condition: In original cloth binding with protective brodart wrap. Externally, in excellent condition with only minor wear to extremities and occasional marks. Internally, generally firmly bound although slightly strained in places. Bright and generally clean but with slight scattered foxing to endpapers and the odd mark to pages. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        Coyotes 1941 (Photograph)

      - Gelatin silver print. 7 9/16 x 9 9/16 in. Mounted, presumably by Sommer. Signed on rear in pencil Coyotes 1941/Frederick Sommer 1941. Reproduced on page 42 of The Art of Frederick Sommer. Purchased from Pace MacGill in Los Angeles by the current owner in the 90s. This is not the better known Coyotes 1945 but it is, in my opinion, more wonderful. I had been interested in Sommer since the 80s, after having seen an Arizona Landscape in the MOMA Tanguy monograph. I had acquired catalogues of some of his exhibitions but had seen little of his work. In LA one summer, Pace MacGill showed me about a dozen prints of his. There were some well known works, 3 landscapes including the one in the Tanguy book, Max Ernst (I think), jack rabbit and horse but I was most struck by this Coyotes which, at that time, I had never even seen reproduced. I wa able to buy it and enjoy it for many happy years. It is a marvellous example of his work.

        o. T. [Flüchtlinge]. Oel auf Leinwand.

      1941 1941 - 45 x 27 cm, Links unten monogr. u. dat. FM 1941. - Frans Masereel (1889-1972) bedeutender belgischer Grafiker, Zeichner und Maler, enger Freund von Stefan Zweig, der vor allem für seine beeindruckenden, von starken Emotionen geprägten Holzschnitte bekannt ist. Er vertrat in seiner Kunst einen konsequenten Humanismus. Er stellte die Menschen in ihrer Verlorenheit und Verlassenheit in der modernen Zivilisation dar, ohne indessen als Pessimist gelten zu können. Denn gleichzeitig lieferte er Beispiele für Handlungsmöglichkeiten, um dem Menschlichen in einer sich entmenschlichenden Welt den ihm gebührenden Platz zu sichern. Beispiele hierfür sind die 80 Holzschnitte ?Das Gesicht Hamburgs? oder die 100 Holzschnitte des Zyklus ?Die Stadt? (1925). 1919 erschien seine Folge von 167 Holzschnitten ?Mein Stundenbuch?, die in Deutschland 1920 von Kurt Wolff verlegt wurde.Eine Freundschaft verband ihn mit Henry Gowa, der ihn nach Saarbrücken holte, wo er von 1947 bis 1951 die Meisterklasse für Malerei an der neugegründeten Schule für Kunst und Handwerk leitete.Frans Masereel regte am 26. September 1953 gemeinsam mit den deutschen Künstlern HAP Grieshaber, Erich Heckel, Gerhard Marcks, Ewald Mataré, Otto Pankok, Max Pechstein, Karl Rössing und anderen in Zürich an, die ?XYLON Societé Internationale des Graveurs sur Bois? zu gründen. Diese Gründung der Internationalen Vereinigung der Holzschneider XYLON wurde beschlossen und Masereel war ihr erster Präsident.1956 schuf er ein weiteres großes Holzschnittwerk, 100 Blätter unter dem Titel ?Mijn Land? 1964 erhielt Masereel den Kulturpreis des Deutschen Gewerkschaftsbundes.Eine Dauerausstellung von Masereel-Werken gibt es im Frans Masereel Centrum in Kasterlee bei Antwerpen. 3000 gr.

        Dilo Jana Zrzaveho (The Work of Jan Zrzavy) 1906-1940

      Prague: Umelecka beseda & Druzstveni prace 1941 - 4to, cloth, 312 pages, in an edition of 1000, with a signed lithograph by Zrzavy, numerous color tipped in reproductions and b/w photo reproductions, in dust jacket. A catalogue raisonné of the work of Zrzavy to date, this book also was a strong rallying-point of Czech national pride under the oppression of the German occupation and dismemberment of the country. Jan Zrzavy (1890-1977) was one of the strong personalities of the Czech modern art world. He lived through and participated in many of the Czech movements, beginning with Sursum in 1910 through Devetsil and thereafter stood out as an isolated individual pursuing his own path away from the avant-garde movements of constructivism and surrealism. He was tolerated under both the Nazis and communists, largely because they found his work politically inoffensive, but they failed to understand the strong undercurrent of his championing a spiritual and especially Czech spiritual mentality and he, like the illustrator Josef Lada, came to represent what many Czechs like to consider unique to themselves. At the point this book was published, Zrzavý had executed a portrait of Karel Hynek Mácha, the famous Bohemian poet of the 19th century who was seen to rescue the Czech language from near-extinction. This image became a clandestine point of power and furthered a will to survive under continued denigrating circumstances. The book had a similar value to the reading public. This is a rare book, in very good condition overall, with a clipped upper dust wrapper. 2500.00 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        UN CANTO PARA BOLIVAR

      [Mexico City]: [Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México], 1941. First Edition. Wraps. Very good. 4to. Original stiff wraps in glassine (as issued). Glassine toned with some chipping at spine, mild soil here and there. Some minor bumping to corners. Front hinge a little tender. Pages unopened along top edge. Very good overall. Limited edition, one of 500 unnumbered copies. With drawings and vignettes by Julio Prieto. INSCRIBED by Neruda: "para / Mercedes de Acosta / afectuoso [indecipherable, possibly "recuerdo"] de / Pablo Neruda / 1943 New York." [16]pp. Handsomely letter-pressed poem printed on the occasion of Neruda&#39;s Bolivar Ampitheater reading at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México on July 24th, 1941, the 111th anniversary of Bolivar&#39;s death. Inscribed to writer and gay pioneer Mercedes de Acosta. Acosta was a writer, poet, novelist, and dramatist, but is perhaps best remembered today for her relationship with Greta Garbo, as well as for her 1960 memoir HERE LIES THE HEART which at the time was groundbreaking for its (admittedly veiled) acknowledgement of her sexuality and relationships. It went on the become something of an underground classic and two recent biographies have revived critical interest in her life and work. An interesting association. [Becco 68].
