Circular Letter by the Jewish Council about a Change in the Gregorian Calendar – Frankfurt 1930 –Rare Booklet

by Jerusalem of Gold Ltd.

February 23, 2016, 6:00 PM EET

Jerusalem, Israel

Description: Circular Letter by the Jewish Council which acted against the intention to change the Gregorian calendar by adding an "unnamed" day once a year. For example, once a year, after Shabbat, an unnamed day will be added and only after it will be Sunday. Economic circles in the USA proposed the change in 1923 before the League of Nations in Geneva. Such a proposal could have led to confusion regarding the Sabbath, since the Sabbath would have wandered from one day of the week to another; sometimes it would indeed occur on Sabbath. At other times, however, it might occur on Sunday or Monday…! When the committee on behalf of the League of Nations started discussing the proposal, it was clear to the Jewry of the world that it must fight against the proposed change for the sake of the Sabbath. The Chief Rabbis of the large states and well-known public personalities took on this role. In 1925, a delegation composed of Rabbi Yosef Zvi Hertz, the Chief Rabbi of England, Rabbi Yisrael Levi (the Chief Rabbi of France), Rabbi Yesha'aya First of Vienna, Rabbi Dr. Tuviya Lowenstein (the chief secretary of the Jewish Council) of Zurich and Lucian Wolf, the well-known Jewish-British historian and writer, appeared before the League of Nations. The booklet before us contains the translation of the speeches the members of the delegation gave and which thanks to them, the proposed change was rejected. At the end of the booklet, there is an example of a "form for signing in your name". The Jewish public was asked to sign such a form, stating that "a change in the Gregorian calendar … will cause material and moral damage to the Jewish citizens of our country". Interesting, important item! 15 pp. Condition: Very Good.

Two Booklets of Jewish Postacrds – Publication of

by Jerusalem of Gold Ltd.

February 23, 2016, 6:00 PM EET

Jerusalem, Israel

Description: Two complete booklets of 10 postcards each, published by the "Yehudiya" Publishing House in Warsaw. The postcards present a selection of pictures of the life of the Jewish town in the Diaspora drawn by Isidor Kaufman and additional Jewish artists. The booklets were given as a present to Rachel Meyuchas in 1913 by Yosef Yoel Rivlin. The Rivlin family was an important family in the old Yishuv in Jerusalem, descendants of the Aliya of the students Hagra. In later years, Yosef Yoel was known as a professor in the Hebrew University and one of the greatest experts in Middle Eastern affairs. He is the father of President Reuben Rivlin. Rivlin's name is erased from the booklets; yet, it can be identified through the erasure. The style of the dedication indicates a strong relationship, which faded when Rachel married the famous Dr. Arye Feigbaum and Rivlin married his wife. The dedication is in gentle, noble and literary language. Rachel Meyuchas was the daughter of Reb Yosef Meyuchas, a public activist in Jerusalem of those days, the son-in-law of Rabbi Michl Pines and brother-in-law of David Yelin. Condition: Very Good. In one of the booklets, the cover is detached (but can be easily glued back)

Medieval Joan of Arc Devotional Ring with Casket and Documents

by TimeLine Auctions

February 26, 2016, 10:00 AM GMT

London, United Kingdom

Estimated Price: £10,000 - £14,000

Description: 15th century AD. With a published Joan of Arc association dating back over a century, exhibited twice in France in the 1950s and in the Museum of Lancashire Millennium Exhibition, January to December 2000, this ring has a silver-gilt hoop with facetted outer face, expanding shoulders and two rectangular and angled fields to the bezel; the hoop with incised niello-filled florid lozenges and triangles, the design giving the appearance of three crosses, the ends of the shoulders with blackletter 'I' and 'M' (for 'Iesus Maria'), the lateral faces with blackletter 'IHS' and 'MAR' (as abbreviations for Jesus and Maria); a small section inserted later to the hoop, sufficient possibly to enlarge it from a band suitable for a small, feminine finger to a larger male(?) hand; the degree of wear generally evident to the ring, including to the hoop insert, suggesting an extended period of wear, long after the date of making, perhaps indicative of the ring's appeal as a talisman; contained in an antique, small oak casket in the form of an architectural reliquary with pitched and hipped lid, the ridge surmounted by a plain cross in iron, the box red velvet-lined, with a removable rectangular holder (the compartment beneath possibly having once held a small document or label), arranged to display the bezel and purpose-made to hold the ring, indicating the reverence in which the ring was already held when the box was made for it; the ring is very unusual in that the vast majority of rings with angled rectangular bezels have them engraved with pictures of saints rather than being inscribed (generally termed as iconographic rings); inscriptions on such rings are normally on the hoop part. Accompanied by a professional drawing showing the ring extended, with the three crosses forming part of the design to the shank clearly depicted; also with publications, documents, press cuttings and correspondence including a photocopy of the 1917 Oates privately printed catalogue; a cuttings book containing an extract from the Sotheby's sale of 1947 (including an image of the ring), with press cuttings from such publications as the Evening Standard, Daily Telegraph and Le Figaro at the time of that sale, followed by others (some illustrated, showing both ring and casket) including from English, American and French newspapers and periodicals in the 1950s, from when the ring was exhibited in France (at La Turbie and also at Rouen and Paris); associated correspondence with the mayor of La Turbie and further referring to the 500th rehabilitation anniversary exhibition; typescript research notes and a signed note by Cyril Bunt (dated 1949) discussing Cardinal Beaufort and the ring and its descent to Lady Morrell; papers relating to two interviews with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) in 1953 and 1956; correspondence with the French embassy in London, shipping documents and permissions for the ring to be sent to France for exhibition; a photocopy of the last letter (with transcript) of Joan of Arc; the exhibition pamphlet for La Turbie (4 copies, 3 in English, 1 in French, 1952), the catalogue for the Jeanne d'Arc et Son Temps exhibition (Rouen and Paris, 1956); documents, including the mounted display caption, from the AD 2000 - The Story of Christianity in Lancashire exhibition at the Museum of Lancashire held in 2000; other correspondence of various dates from 1950s to 1980s regarding the ring, most of the letters with envelopes. Property of an Essex gentleman; inherited 1979 from Dr James Hasson of Harley Street, London; acquired Sotheby's sale, 1 April 1947, lot 37; formerly in a private collection (1929-1947); previously with the F. A. Harman Oates collection (sold Sotheby's, 20 February 1929, lot 21); earlier with Augustus John before 1914, the gift to him of Lady Ottoline Morrell; by descent, through the Cavendish-Bentinck family (Duke of Portland) from cardinal Henry Beaufort (1375-1447), who was present at the trial and execution of Joan of Arc

Ultra Rare KISHIN SHINOYAMA - Gelatin Silver Stamped

by Artelisted

March 3, 2016, 5:00 PM EST

Boca Raton, FL, USA

Estimated Price: $1,000 - $2,000

Description: Original gelatin silver, 10" x 10", stamped and dated 1978 by the important Japanese photographer Kishin Shinoyama.Shinoyama graduated from Nihon University. He worked with the Light Publicity agency while still a student, and freelanced after graduation.Shinoyama has put out a large number of books of photographs of girls, dressed, mostly undressed, and nude.On November 10, 2009 Shinoyama's home and office were searched by police on suspicion of public indecency. The searches stemmed from concerns regarding nude photos he allegedly took in public of two women in August 2008 for his book 20XX TOKYO. [1] On May 26, 2010 the court found Shinoyama guilty for public indecency and defiling place of worship for photographing at Aoyama Cemetery. He was fined 300,000 Yen.He is married to Saori Minami and their son is actor Akinobu Shinoyama. Kishin Shinoyama's (b. 1940) offerings from the 1960's not only document a decade, but are also invaluable to any survey of Tokyo photography from that period. His work reveals much about the era, depicting snapshots of the student protest movement, fashion shows, dancers, avant-garde theatre troops and of course the nude shots that would subsequently form a major motif in his oeuvre. 1960's Japan was a politically charged place experiencing rapid economic growth under the alliance with the United States. Politics, culture, society... this was the decade when 'possibilities' reached a critical point as contradicting elements were forced to react with one another. The photographs emerging from the Japanese capital during this period constitute the place where this metamorphosis occurred in the most radical way, and it was in the midst of this charged atmosphere that Shinoyama was taking his photographs. The Sixties by Kishin are a vital record of how Shinoyama rediscovered and redefined photography. This was not by using photography to critique the era, as was the case with many of his contemporaries, but by bringing a criticality to the photograph itself. Inspired by the Apollo moon landing, Shinoyama's Death Valley photographs were arranged completely by the artist, from the models to the location of the shoot. In the photographs he positions nudes of three different races in the frontier land of the desert, and by placing foreign bodies in the form of naked human figures in the landscape, displays a classic Shinoyama technique - that of highlighting the hidden meaning in a place. His work has a fearsome, non-reflective radicalism that has continued throughout his career and that defines his imagery since the 1960's. Kishin Shinoyama's work is held in private and public collections worldwide.

Condition Report: Very good condition as found it and with minor signs of manipulation.

O/C Still Life, Grant Wood, C. 1924, Thulin Frame

by Louis J. Dianni, LLC

February 15, 2016, 11:00 AM EST

West Palm Beach, FL, USA

Estimated Price: $6,000 - $10,000

Description: Oil on canvas painting of a "Floral Arrangement in a Copper Kettle". Painting is well executed and typical of the work Wood produced using copper vessels as a vase for floral arrangements, all completed in the 1920's. The subject conforms to his country/farm idealism. Carved and gilded original frame dated 1924 by Walfred Thuliin born 1878 in Sweden. Thulin came to America at the age of 22 as a talented wood carver who soon affiliated himself with Herman Dudley Murphy. In 1912 he opened his own shop on Boylston Street in Boston; here he worked until the end of his life in 1949. He was involved in the creation of many churches in his lifetime, and was closely associated with architect Ralph Adams Cram. He is responsible for the altar cross in the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, and his signature is found in many trays, chests, candle sticks, and, of course, frames which he designed for leading artists (such as John Singer Sargent). His work can be found in the top museums in the country.

Condition Report: Unlined, extremely minor in-paint. Original frame with only very minor losses.
