Binding is tight. Includes mylar cover. Howard Pyle's work is well described in the forward written by Merle Johnson: "Pyle, artist-author, living in the latter half of the nineteenth century and of the first decade of the twentieth, had the fine faculty of transposing himself into any chosen period of history and making its people flesh and blood againÂ…it is improbable that anyone else will ever bring his combination of interest and talent to the depiction of these old-time pirates. " Pyle revolutionized American book illustration and provided inspiration to young illustrators throughout the twentieth century. Most of the artwork and stories were originally published with the Century Company and Harper's Magazine. Some stories included are "Buccaneers and Marooners of the Spanish Main," "Jack Ballister's Fortunes" and "Captain Scarfield." ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 247 pp; Signed by Compiler .

        A.A. Milne pens about Dover Road and Pims , his plays which pooh-pooh romantic love

      Chelsea, UK, March 5, [1921]. 4.5" x 6". "Single page ALS, signed in full signature ""A.A. Milne"" and dated ""March 5th"" (circa 1921) . 4.5""x 6"" on stationary with letterhead of 11, Mallord Street, Chelsea, S.W.3. Tel Kensington 2074. Expected center fold. Near fine condition.A lovely Milne ALS referencing both the upcoming play produced from his book ""The Dover Road"", in addition to noting that another play he wrote, ""Pim"", is being translated into Italian. The Dover Road, originally on Broadway late in 1921, was recently revived by Close Quarter Productions, in association with Jermyn Street Theatre in New York. The premise of the play is fascinating: a rich and somewhat eccentric gentleman intercepts eloping couples, making them prisoners in his mansion for a week to determine whether they really are well suited for one another.Milne's letter also touches upon his other play, ""Mr. Pim Passes By"", another delightful comedy in classic Milne style, performed in 1919/1920. Once again he touches upon the complexities of relationships, and the hidden agendas and manipulations that can ensue. This delightful comedy tells of what happens in a very conventional English home when appealing little Mr. Pim, who has so much trouble with names, drops in one day on a small matter of business. The business is soon forgotten when Mr. Pim announces that the former husband of the lady of the house, thought to be deceased, is alive. Since the lady is married now, she is a bigamist. Her present husband, always a trifle pompous and tyrannical, is upset no end. Then Mr. Pim passes by again; this time he confesses that he confused two names and it is safe to assume that the lady's first husband is dead, as they originally believed. Without telling her husband, the lady uses the knowledge as a weapon not only to get what she wants in the house but to force her husband to permit his niece to marry the young artist who loves her.Milnes letter to Seligman (Vincent Seligman), references his two plays along with Milne's classic jocular, but lamenting comment ""None of my books has been translated into Italian, but the play Pim is about to be. If any Italian publisher wants the books he can go ahead; or rather let him step forward with a million lire in his hand.""Little did he know that in his not so distant future, and in just a few short years he would experience sky rocketing success as the author of the infamous Winnie The Pooh stories, and ultimately would see his novels translated into most every language imagined!

        Fete Carnaval 1921

      Imp. Gandini, Nice 1921 - A rollicking cover illustration of a Pantagruel type astride a flamingo and a crowd of clowns and masqueraders below, perfecting evoking the joyful anarchy of Carnaval, and within, an eight panel panorama and program. Wraps are 27 by 19 cm, and the panels within are of slighly smaller dimension, with a total length, when stretched out, of 160 cm. Depicted on the panorama is a colorful parade of floats and various comical figures, with everything drawn with a deliberately crude, or naive, pen and brush that heightens the farcical flavor of the rendering. This panoramic brochure was issued as a souvenir for the Nice Carnaval, the pre-Lent celebration with roots in Nice going back to the Middle Ages and for which Nice had become famous, perhaps second only to the Carnaval of Venice, which in a number of ways Nice emulated. A parade to celebrate Carnaval was first done in 1873, and it is the parade that is the core of what is depicted here. It is unknown whether this program was issued for a particular event, or what seems more probable, as a more general souvenir. Scarce, with no copies of this edition of what was an annual located on OCLC, and only a few copies found of any edition (the 1898, 1899 and 1906 editions, one copy each: Bibliotheque Nationale; 1907 edition, two copies: Bayerische Staatsbibliotheque and the Deutsche Nationalbibliotheque). Wraps are soiled. Discrete tape repair running along the "joint". Endpapers and rear cover are filled with evocative ads. Several flattened creases, short closed tears and minor chips. The panorama itself is very well preserved with no significant issues. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        LA GUIRLANDE DES MOIS

      Meynial 1921 - 12cm x 8cm. Cream silk covers illustrated in black and gold with designs by Barbier. All edges gilt and decorative borders and chapter headings. A fine book, near fine dustwrapper and slipcase. Decorative endpapers, pictorial title page, six pochoir colour plates in Art Deco style. The fifth Barbier almanac, a note to the reader tells us that this will be the final volume in the series of almanacs. Guirlandes des Mois is a series of almanacs produced by Jules Maynial and illustrated by George Barbier, the delightful little books (five in total) were published annually between 1917 - 1921. Barbier was a keen book collector and his own collection included a series of seventeenth - early nineteenth century almanacs and it was this collection which inspired the design of the Guirlandes. The books contain an anthology of writings, bank pages for notes and a calendar. The illustrations are beautifully delicate, with covers, dustwrappers and box all containing different drawings. Beginning in the war years many of the illustrations reflect the times, with images of soldiers on leave wooing elegant young women. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The investor's pocket manual.

      New York: The Financial Press, 1921. 16mo (15.5 cm, 6.1"). 272 pp. Vol. XIII, no. 4 (May, 1921) of a monthly publication offering "current statistics, records and high and low prices of stocks and bonds of railroad, industrial, and mining corporations, also grain, cotton, coffee and provisions." The publisher advertised in contemporary magazines that copies of this "real help to investors" would be "furnished FREE by any investment house . . . on request," and the front wrapper of the present example identifies it as coming from Kurtz Brothers Bankers and Brokers at 1421 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, PA. There is a great deal here on the structure and value of many, many individual companies.    => These ephemeral guidebooks are not widely institutionally held in the U.S., although a different, quarterly publication of the same title (published by E.A. Pierce & Co.) appears to be somewhat more common. Publisher's printed yellow paper wrappers; creased and lightly soiled, with inked date on spine and pencilled annotations on back wrapper. Text block just starting to pull away from wrappers. Pages age-toned; three leaves separated. => A useful snapshot of the American economy in the spring of 1921.

        Funfzig Zeichnungen; Pastelle und Aquarelle Aus Dem Besitz Der Nationalgalerie.

      Berlin - Julius Bard 1921 - 50 pastels and watercolours by the German artist Adolph Menzel, printed in Berlin under the Weimar Republic. Adolph Menzel was one of the most popular and significant 19th century German artists. His work was mostly produced and exhibited in Germany, and was there acquired quickly by national galleries. This in part accounts for his prominence and popularity within Germany. By the early 20th century he held a significant place within German culture. This book was produced in 1921, when the young Weimar Republic was about to enter a period of damaging hyperinflation, and faced many other threats to its stability besides. Moreover, the identity crisis in Germany following her defeat in the first world war was profound. One can see this work in that context, representing abeautiful artisticrelic of Germany's cultural florescence in the previous century. This is number 266 of 400 copies numbered by hand. Collated: completeCondition: In quarter vellum with paper covered boards. Externally sound with a little wear to the extremities and some marking to the spine. Internally clean and bright and firmly bound. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      J. Povolozky, Paris 1921 - Octavos (18.5 × 13.5 cm). Original decorative wrappers pasted over blind self-wrappers (as issued); 8 pp. Wrappers illustrated with five variant pochoir patterns. Numerous small vignettes in the text. Very good. Russian fairy tale printed for children of Russian émigrés in France, with illustrations by the ten-year-old Zhenya Kovarskaya, the daughter of Ilya Kovarskii and Lidiia Kovarskaia, an editor-and-publisher duo which had left Soviet Russia in 1919. Each of the five copies features a variant wrapper, decorated by hand using different patterns, most likely using the pochoir technique. Given small irregularities, it appears likely that this work was also carried out by children. The publisher, J. Povolozky, ran a gallery in Paris in the 1920s and was known for his collaboration with Russian avant-garde artists Mikhail Larionov and Natalia Goncharova. KVK, OCLC show copies (one each) at NYPL, Princeton, Stanford, and UNC Chapel Hill, without specifying which of the wrapper variants are held. Not at the Russian State or National Library.

        Caliban Island [BIBLIO-MYSTERY]

      Books Limited London [1921] - First Edition. Very scarce biblio mystery missed by Hubin (and lost civilization fantasy missed by Bleiler). "The remarkable adventures of an English boy, kidnapped at the beginning of the War, and taken to an islet in the Greek Archipelago. His story centers round the discovery of a Quarto Edition of Shakespeare's Tempest, the most interesting literary find of the century - within which are concealed the clues to a hidden treasure. Contrary to all the accepted traditions, Shakespeare's uninhabited island turns out to be in the Mediterranean, and to be still in the possession of descendants of the original Prospero, served like their ancestor by a Caliban. It falls to the Boy-hero to assist in unraveling the cipher, and in delivering the island and its owners from the domination of the enemy". Near Fine in Very Good dustjacket.
