With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

1 Goll, Iwan. Illustrated by Fernand Leger. Cover art by Hans Blanke. Die Chapliniade. Eine Kinodichtung. [On front cover, also: Kleines Kino der Menschlichkeit. Filmdichtung] Mit Vier Zeichnungen von Fernand Leger
Dresden Rudolf Kaemmerer Verlag. Printer: Petzschke & Gretschel 1920 First Edition Paper pasted onto boards Very Good 
Small 4to. 22.5 by 19 cm. 42 pp. This is a work interesting from a number of angles: it is evidence of the unique spell Chaplin cast on society, setting him apart from any other movie actor of the day; it signals an early acceptance of film as an artistic medium; it represents a convergence and blurring of high and lowbrow culture of the day; it is a foray by Leger into book production and a fun, accessible application of his form of cubism. Goll (1891-1950) was a Franco-German poet, born in Lorraine, who wrote in both languages and had close social and collaborative ties with many Expressionistic and Surrealistic artists of the day, including George Grosz, Andre Breton, Marc Chagall, and of course Leger. Spine repaired but a touch of roughness to it remains, especially in contrast to the love condition of the boards.
