[COSTUMES FOR "WALZER AUS WIEN" / THEATERKUNST HERMANN J. KAUFMANN].
[A collection of 26 water colour drawings depicting costumes for the pasticcio "Walzer aud Wien"]. About 1930-6.
Comprises 26 plates (26 x 22 cm) with 31 costume drawings painted in water colours with notes and numbers in pencil. The notes refer to the operetta characters and possibly Swedish artists who were famous at that time. A label "Theaterkunst Hermann J. Kaufmann" pasted on the reverse of the plates. Housed in a specially-made box. The pasticcio "Walzer aus Wien" arranged by Erich Wolfgang Korngold and with music by Johann Strauss (father and son) was first performed at the Vienna Stadttheater in 1930. The following year it was restaged in London as "Waltzes from Vienna" and a French version entitled "Valses de Vienne" was produced in Paris. The successful operetta was based on the rivalry between Strauss the elder and Strauss the younger. We have not been able to find any Swedish performance but this set of drawings listing Swedish artists indicates that such a plan existed, even if it was never implemented. We don't know who made the drawings but the Kaufmann labels suggest that they used to belong to them. Theaterkunst Hermann Kaufmann, founded in Berlin 1907, became the world's biggest costume house for theatre, opera, and later also film productions. In the 1930s the company expanded internationally but in 1936 Hermann Kaufmann had to sell it due to political pressure.

[LIBERTY - FASHION SALES CATALOGUE].
Dress and Decoration. London & Paris, published by Liberty & Co., no date but about 1905.
Folio. Pp. (32). With thirteen large tipped-in colour plates, including eleven of ladies in elaborate dresses and two smaller plates of children's clothing. As issued, stapled, with some rust at inner margin of first few leaves. Original floral decorated green boards by Atelier Devauchelle, title label on upper cover. First and only edition of this glamorous catalogue by the prominent Liberty company. Including plates with women in fashionable dresses set against backgrounds of sophisticated Arts & Crafts interiors. Each design with a detailed description. Foreword by Arthur Fish, renowned British art specialist. Arthur Lasenby Liberty (1843-1917) opened the first shop "The East India House" in 1875 on Regent street in London and sold many items from the Orient including fabrics. Within a few years the oriental fabrics became very popular and to meet the increasing demand the shop (now named Liberty) started to import un-dyed silk, cashmere and cotton fabrics, which were then hand-printed in England, in Eastern style. In 1884, Liberty established a costume department, in which clothing was designed and made from Liberty fabrics. The goal was not to make clothing that followed fashion; it was to make clothing based on historical costume, reinterpreted for the modern wearer as part of the Aesthetic Movement. Liberty was one of the first to embrace the new Art Nouveau style in the mid 1890s. They became known for their textiles in this style, some of which are still produced today (Vintage Fashion Guild).

GOSHÓKAI (TAKAHASHI, TÏJIRÏ) (ED.):
[KIMONO DESIGNS]. Hatsune . Kyoto, Unsôdô, Meiji 39 (1906).
An album with thirty wonderful textile designs for "kosode" (short-sleeved kimono), woodblock-printed in vivid colours, some highlighted with metallic inks, protected by tissue guards. Pp. 17 leaves including title and colophon. Size: 31.2 x 21.8 cm. Original boards, worn, cotton ties, floral paper paste-downs. Hand written title slip "Hatsune" on front cover. According to the title and preface it seems that the designs were intended for kimono to be made for the beginning of spring. The lovely and colourful designs are mainly influenced by nature, including images of flowers, trees, birds, butterflies, etc. We believe it was made as a customer catalogue at a kimono store in Kyoto. It was published by the famous publishing house Unsd but we haven't been able to find any information about the editor Goshkai. A rare work, with no copies in OCLC or the Japanese database. Unsd published another book titled "Hatsune" in 1924 which is a completely different work. Small Japanese ownership stamps to upper margins. Thumbing and some marks to lower margin, but overall in good condition.

TABAKA, SEIKO (ARTIST):
Tsuya Koromo (or Tsuyagoromo) (Elegant costumes). Three volumes (complete). Kyoto, Honda Unkindo, Meiji 39 (1906).
Folio (22.5 x 32.5 cm). A collection of 150 wonderful woodblock-printed designs for kimonos, all rendered in rich and vivid colours, some heightened with metallic inks, protected by tissue guards. Each volume has two preliminary pages and one colophon at end. The folded leaves are bound in the traditional Japanese style. Original paper wrappers, front covers printed in different colours, ribbon ties. The volumes are subtitled: tsuki (moon), hana (flower) and yuki (snow) respectively. An impressive large-size design book with motifs clearly inspired by nature which was common at this time. The covers are lightly rubbed but overall the books are in lovely condition. Books with kimono designs originated in Kyoto where the tradition of fashion innovation and book publishing started in the 17th century. At the end of the 19th century when Japan's economy boomed the textile industry thrived and the customers of traditional kimonos were eager to order new designs with modern patterns. This particular set of kimono designs seems very rare. We haven't been able to find any complete set in a western institution (Thomas Watson Library, N.Y. has volume 2 & 3). In Japan two complete copies are to be found at Osaka and Kyoto Industrial University.

TZARA, TRISTAN / DELAUNAY, SONIA (ILLS.):
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. Comprising the text of the play "Le coeur gaz" by Dadaist writer Tristan Tzara. Accompanied by twelve lithographs by Sonia Delanay. Comprising 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. Housed in specially made plexiglas slipcase. Limited edition of 150 copies, of which this is no. XXI (of XXV reserved for collaborators) on this publication and signed by S. Delanuay on the colophon. (The first 25 copies in the series were accompanied by a supplementary suite of 7 signed lithographs). A gorgeous copy of this beautiful and rare work. Tristan Tzara (1896-1963) was the renowned Roman born writer and artist who was known for being one of the central figures of 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, creating bright coloured eccentric geometrically-shaped costumes of thick cardboard. The play has been viewed as the final event in the evolution of Dada as a cultural movement.
