    Nowa kultura: tygodnik [New Culture: a weekly], vol. II, no. 18 (33) by Kwiatkowska, Franciszka and Edward Staniewski, editors

    Warsaw: Franciszka Kwiatkowska, 1924. Octavo (25 × 17.5 cm). Original staple-stitched printed wrappers with cover and typography design by Mieczys aw Szczuka; 24 pp. Very good. Single issue of the important Polish modernist and avant-garde literary and political journal, published from July 1923 to September 1924 by the avant-garde artist Mieczys aw Szczuka and communist activists and promoters of the Polish labor movement Jan Hempel and Edward Staniecki. "Nowa kultura" continued "Kultura Robotnicza" ("Proletarian Culture"), an official organ of the Polish Communist Party. Both journals were influenced by the Soviet Proletkult aesthetics and various international left-leaning writers. Mieczyslaw Szczuka (1898-1927) was a constructivist artist and a co-founder of the avant-garde group and journal "Blok" which, like the contemporary Soviet avant-garde journal LEF, was committed to promoting Productivism, or the close ties between art and production. Szczuka was responsible for the constructivist cover design and minimalist typography throughout the text. The editors, Hempel and Staniecki, were both members of the Polish Socialist Party with strong ties to Moscow and were able to attract many contemporary Polish as well as Soviet writers to the publication. This issue contains film and theater reviews, political articles by Jan Hempel, K Michalowski and K. Minsky as well as a short play by the Soviet writer Yevgeni Zamyatin. With two shorter reviews of recent films. KVK, OCLC only show the holdings at the Polish National Library and Columbia University.

    Victory over the Sun. First New York performance by Law, Alma (director)

    Brooklyn: Brooklyn Academy of Music, 1983. . Poster, 28 x 22 inches. Next Wave series. Some wrinkling. From the New York Times: By HARLOW ROBINSON Published: November 20, 1983 When the opera ''Victory Over the Sun'' received its first performance in St. Petersburg in 1913, the city's artistic elite buzzed with excitement. Tickets were sold out in a day. One drama critic in attendance later noted: ''Scandal lovers from the St. Petersburg demimonde were willing to pay enormous amounts of money just to get into the theater.'' When ''Victory Over the Sun'' returned to the stage 67 years later, in 1980 in Los Angeles, the public demonstrated the same sort of wild enthusiasm. One ticketless woman, in a gesture that would have delighted the opera's eccentric creators, is said to have bitten a security guard's finger when he refused to let her into the theater. On Friday, New Yorkers will have their first opportunity to see ''Victory Over the Sun,'' at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, where it is being staged as part of the Next Wave Festival of Contemporary Performance. From the collection of the Russian theater historian, Alma Law.

    Poezija [Poetry]. Signed and inscribed by Tysliava, Juozas (1902-1961)

    New York: Lithuanian Press Corporation, 1935. Quarto (25.8 × 17 cm). Original pictorial wrappers; 60, [1] pp. Signed and inscribed by the author. Very good or better. Signed and inscribed copy of the first book published in American exile by Juozas Tysliava (1902-1961), who left Paris for the United States in 1932. Well-acquainted with the works of Marinetti and the Russian avant-garde, Tysliava was at times considered to be the Lithuanian Vladimir Mayakovsky. He began to publish verse in the symbolist manner and, in the mid-1920s, transitioned to a futurist lyrical style marked by fascination with the achievements of modernity and technological progress. Among other lyrics both old and new, the volume contains Tysliava's "radio poem" about Paris, which conjures a rich tapestry of the French capital, with numerous references to the subway, cars, streetcars, radio broadcasts from Buenos Aires and Africa-inspired cabaret performances, the Eiffel Tower, and the events of World War I. Other themes of these texts are soccer, airplanes, workers, and machinery. Evidently, an important link between Tysliava and the work of Marinetti was the Lithuanian constructivist artist Vytautas Kairiukštis (1890-1961): "It was Kairiukštis who drew Juozas Tysliava's attention to Marinetti and his ideas. He also commented on the first number of MUBA [A Lithuanian avant-garde journal published in Paris in 1928 and edited by Tysliava] in a private letter to Tysliava, emphasising that it would be worthwhile giving more attention to Futurism and its major representatives in the next issue of the review. As a result of his advice, Marinetti's greetings to the Lithuanian Futurists were published in the second number of MUBA" (G. Jankeviciute, "Manifestations of Futurism in Lithuanian Visual Art of the 1920s, in Yearbook of Futurism Studies, p. 189). KVK, OCLC show a single copy, at the University of Pennsylvania.

    Il Deserto Tentato. Mistero in Un Atto by Pavolini, Corrado. (1898-1980) Music by Alfredo Casella. Book design by Giulio Cisari

    Milano: G. Ricordi & C. Editori, 1937. First edition. Wraps. Very Good. Scarce libretto of a strange Futurist one act opera, with talking a tree (Euphobia), shrubs and airplanes among the characters, some of which are actually human --aviators, soldiers and natives -- even if they intone like actors in a Greek tragedy. This oddball propagandistic work, more an oratorio than opera, celebrates war ("sweet war"), aviation and territorial conquest -- the things that cast a spell on so many Futurists, and which were the essence of Fascism. Three copies located on OCLC of this libretto brochure, at Berkeley, Harvard, and one in Italy. (There are copies of the printed music elsewhere). The work was first performed at the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in 1937. 8vo. 20 by 13 cm. 23 pp. Dedicated to Mussolini. Pavolini, like many adherents of the Futurist Movement, came to embrace Fascism. In his case, he had a brother who was a prominent member of the Fascist heirarchy. After the war, Pavolini found success as a screenwriter. Age toning to the leaves.
