Stickereien (Embroideries). Entwürfe von Helen Schmitt. Auf Stein gezeichnet von der Verfasserin. Parts I-III (all published). Basel, Wassermann & Schäublin & Dresden, In Kommission bei der Verlagshandlung Wilhelm Baensch, 1906-7.
. Large folio (41 x 52 cm). Comprises twenty-four beautiful coloured lithographed plates (one double-page) printed on strong cardboard of different colours, some highlighted in gold. Together with one leaf of foreword and three leaves with explanatory text and photographic illustrations. As issued in loose sheets in original illustrated stiff wrappers, with some wear and neat restorations. Housed in specially made cloth portfolio by Atelier Devauchelle in Paris. First and only edition, self-published by the artist. We assume in a very small number. A gorgeous Art Nouveau work with decorative ornamental designs for embroidery but could also be used for other techniques; wood painting and carving, book covers, furnitures, curtains, clothes, etc. Helene Schmitt was a teacher of embroidery at the Frauenarbeitsschule in Basel. Some of her works were exhibited at the Basel Trade Exhibition of 1901. According to Schmitt's foreword: "The designs for embroidery, which are available here in lithographic form, are a selection from the drawings that I designed as head of the class for coloured embroidery at the Woman's Work School in Basel over the past 5 years. Part of the work was exhibited at the Basel Trade Exhibition from 1901 for the first time. Since then I have mostly reworked the designs and now publish them in this new form ... The patterns were created for the needs of my pupils and were implemented in the school itself. Our school is not a technical school and the embroidery courses are attended by the schoolchildren for a longer or shorter period according to their wish. One will therefore find among these sheets, in addition to technically very simple works, also more complicated ones; however, the technical requirements never exceed the level of what can be acquired in a similarly organized school. I know that the artistic appeal of such women's work does not just depend on the template, but essentially also on how much taste and care is put into the technical part of the work. Unfortunately, very little of these intentions can be seen in the lithographic plates. Photographic illustrations have therefore been added to the brief explanations of the text sheets. They should show the effect of the whole and clarify the technical treatment. In addition, the text about the technique and the material will provide the necessary information ... The drawings should also have some value for non-embroiderers who know what is important using a pattern. Most are easy to implement in a different technique; some of the borders are suitable for wood painting ... " A wonderful work in genuine Art Nouveau style. A few plates with small crease at corners but overall a very good set. Very rare in the market.

Le coeur à gaz: costumes de Sonia Delaunay. [Paris], Jacques Damase, [1977].
. Narrow folio portfolio. Size: 21 x 45 cm. As issued on heavy paper. With 51 numbered pages printed on recto only on (17) folded sheets + 2 pages and one blank. Comprises the text of the play "Le coeur gaz" by Dadaist writer Tristan Tzara. Accompanied by twelve lithographs by Sonia Delaunay. Includes seven theatre costumes by Sonia Delaunay which are colour reproductions of the gouache maquettes made for the performance at Thtre Michel in 1923, two more double page lithographs (one issued as extra title page and one with two costumes) and three lithographed decorations in the text. Original card covers with striking design in black, red and cream. Limited edition of 150 copies, of which this is no. XXI (of XXV reserved for collaborators) on this publication and signed by S. Delaunay on the colophon. (The first 25 copies, nos. 1- 25, in the series were accompanied by a supplementary suite of 7 signed lithographs). A gorgeous copy of this beautiful and scarce work. Tristan Tzara (1896-1963) was the famous Roman-born writer and artist who was known to be one of the central figures in the anti-establishment Dada movement. His noted play "Le cur gaz" was first staged as part of the 1921 "Dada Salon" at the Galerie Montaigne in Paris. It was written as a parody of classical drama in the form of an absurd dialogue between characters named after human body parts; mouth, ear, eye, nose, neck and eyebrow (Tzara himself). The second stage production, also titled "Le Cur barbe" was performed at Thtre Michel in July 1923. Sonia Delaunay, the famous Ukrainian-born French artist, designed and costumed the production. She created bright-coloured eccentric geometric-shaped suits of thick cardboard. The play has been seen as the last event in Dada's development as a cultural movement.

Die 12 Monate. Originallithographien. [VIENNA SECESSION]. Vienna, Druck und Verlag der Wiener Werkstätte, no date (1912).
. 4to. Comprises thirteen original colour lithographs, as issued, loose in publisher's black cloth portfolio illustrated with original lithographs by the artist on covers, abstract hand-painted front paste down and inner flaps. Housed in a specially-made chemise by Atelier Devauchelle. First edition printed in a very small number. A fine, complete set of this stunning work by Franz von Zlow comprising in total fifteen original colour lithographs; one plate for each month, one plate depicting the four seasons and two plates pasted on the covers. The fanciful lithographs have multiple pictures of people and animals placed in everyday and festive contexts depending on the month. Zlow uses a folkloristic and dynamic style with very expressive colours on a decorative flatness, influenced by the early Viennese Secession. Franz von Zlow (1883-1963) was a renowned Austrian painter, designer, graphic artist and muralist who worked at the Wiener Werksttte from 1905 onwards and joined the Vienna Secession in 1908. The Wiener Werksttte (1903-32) was a productive cooperative of skilled artisans (including architects, artists and designers) in Vienna dedicated to the production of modern decorative arts. The declared objective of the Wiener Werksttte was to break through everyday life with remarkable artistic and aesthetic products. Two plates are narrowly cut but overall it's a lovely set of an impressive work of art. Rare. Ref. Heller, Die Bunte Welt, 455. Schweiger, Wiener Werksttte, p. 185.
