        Albert Gessner: Das st?dtische Miethaus. Mit einem Katalog des Gesamtwerks [Gebundene Ausgabe] Claudia Kromrei (Autor)

      Mann (Gebr.), Berlin, 1868. Albert Gessner z?hlte in dem Jahrzehnt vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg zu den wichtigsten und bekanntesten Architekten der Stadt Berlin. Als einer der wenigen seiner Zeit hat er die Bauaufgabe st?dtisches Miethaus als umfassende k?nstlerische Herausforderung begriffen und diesen Typus in seiner ganzen Komplexit?t reformiert.Sein gesamtes praktisches und theoretisches Schaffen widmete Albert Gessner (1868 1953) einem einzigen Thema: dem Wohnen. Seine Auseinandersetzung damit erfolgte in geradezu einzigartiger Weise umfassend und intensiv: "Vom Sofakissen zum St?dtebau " von kunstgewerblichen Arbeiten ?ber das Landhaus bis zum st?dtischen Miethaus, vom kleinsten Detail der Wohnung bis zum Bebauungsplan und dem Bild eines ganzen Stra?enzugs. In seinem Bekenntnis zum st?dtischen Wohnen und dem Finden einer bis heute geeigneten Form daf?r erweist sich der Reformer durchaus als Vision?r. Claudia Kromrei legt mit diesem Band eine zusammenh?ngende Untersuchung aller Bestandteile des bauk?nstlerischen Schaffen Gessners vor. Auf Grundlage seiner ver?ffentlichten Schriften insbesondere des Buchs Das deutsche Miethaus , seiner Bauten und Projekte sowie seines erstmals zug?nglichen schriftlichen Nachlasses stellt sie die spezifische Reform und Transformation des Typus Miethaus und des st?dtischen Wohnungsbaus im beginnenden 20. Jahrhundert dar. Das Buch schlie?t mit einem vollst?ndigen Werkverzeichnis mit umfassendem Werkkatalog und liefert damit eine detaillierte und systematische ?bersicht ?ber das Gesamtwerk Albert Gessners. Autor: Claudia Kromrei, geb. 1969, Studium der Architektur in Berlin und Z?rich, Mitarbeit als Architektin bei Prof. Axel Schultes und Prof. Klaus Theo Brenner, Wissenschaftliche Mitarbeit am Institut f?r Architektur der TU Berlin, 2009 Promotion bei Prof. Neumeyer ebenda. Forschungsschwerpunkt auf der st?dtischen Wohnhausarchitektur des 20. Jahrhunderts, derzeit Post-Doc an der TU Berlin.

        VIEWS Of The PACIFIC COAST. Yerba Buena Island. Engineer Post & Depot

      San Francisco: Helios, Cosmopolitan Gallery of Photographic Art, 415 Montgomery St, (n. d.). Ca late 1868. Sharp image. Stain to rear. A VG+ example.. Albumen photograph, captioned in mss on rear: "Yerba Buena Island, looking westward from light house knoll." Seated are 3 soldiers, also in mss identified: "Col Mansfield Lt. Gregory } US Engrs. Dr. Walker. USA." Muybridge imprint his earliest after his return to San Francisco in 1867. Oblong format. Image: 2-1/16" x 3-5/16". Mount: 2-7/16" x 4" By the start of the Civil War in 1861, plans were being made to install a battery for the defense of the Bay on Yerba Buena Island, but these were delayed and it wasn't until three years after the end of the Civil War that a military post and depot were built on the island's eastern shore. The post included a fog signal and an octagonal lighthouse (constructed in 1875) that still stand today. The facility consisted of a dozen buildings, and could house approximately 150 men. The post was abandoned in 1878. [CA DOT Dist 4]. "Special Order No. 252 of the Commanding General at San Francisco on December 19, 1866 directed the Commanding Officer of Alcatraz Island to send a detachment of one sergeant and ten privates under Major Mansfield [with the brevet rank of Lt. Colonel] from his command to establish a post at Yerba Buena Island. In 1868, an Army detachment of 125 men was sent to the Island. Their mission was to establish a regular artillery post and depot on the island. The post was built on the eastern side of the island at the edge of a cove. The buildings were erected in the standard army layout around a square, which was used as a parade ground. A large two-wing barracks adequate for two companies, a mess hall, laundresses quarters, commanding officer's quarters, two officers' quarters, a hospital, a guard house, a bakery, a Sutler's store, an engineer's store house, a wharf, and a boat house were erected in 1868. The post had a capacity for 150 soldiers and 4 officers." [Ruhge. Camp YBI]. This image, showing the parade ground & 5 buildings [including the Commanding Officer's house], most likely taken in August 1868, after Muybridge accepted a commission to photograph military installtions in Alaska, no doubt prior to boarding the steamship Pacific for the trip north. Rare photograph putting faces to names during this short existence of Camp YBI.

        INFELICIA

      Philadelphia ; New York; Boston, 1868. 1st edition, first printing, of Author?s only book. Original Publisher?s Cloth, Brown cloth cover stamped in gold, 16mo, 7-124 pages; 15 cm. Singerman 2085 (for the 126 page edition) . Singerman notes as well that he, the "compiler[, ] saw the rarer 124 page edition without the publisher's statement [about Dickens]. " Poems. The true first edition, first printing, dedicated to Charles Dickens but without his warm letter thanking her reproduced, as appeared in later printings.  The success of this book meant that later editions appeared the same year in London as well as in the US (published by Lippincott) but with more pages (141 & 126, respectively) and the Dickens letter reproduced.   Includes some poems with Jewish themes, such as ?Judith (?Oh forget not that I am Judith! /And I know where sleeps Holofernes?) , ? ?Hear, O Israel (?The God of Jacob is our Shield?) , ? etc. Menken (1835-1868)  was ?Internationally famous for her starring role in the equestrian melodrama Mazeppa, in which she was stripped on stage to a flesh-colored body stocking, lashed to the back of the ?wild horse of Tartary, ? and sent flying on a narrow ramp above the theater, Adah Isaacs Menken consistently defied social mores. She cropped her black hair and smoked cigarettes, and publicly disparaged conventional married life. Menken represented an early example of the cult of personality, blurring her private life with her public persona. ? She married four times in the course of seven years. Her second marriage, in 1859, was to the heavyweight boxing champion of the world, John C. Heenan?. One of the most glamorous celebrities of the 1860s, Menken also cultivated a literary following. She wrote poetry and developed relationships with the likes of Walt Whitman, Charles Dickens, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Alexandre Dumas, and Algernon Swinburne. George Sand was a close friend to the actor and was godmother to Menken?s second child?. A major bone of contention to this day is the authenticity of her Jewishness. Though scholars have some evidence that Menken was raised a Catholic and converted to Judaism only after marrying her first husband, Menken herself once publicly rebuked a journalist who labeled her a convert by announcing that she was ?born in that faith [Judaism], and have adhered to it through all my erratic career. Through that pure and simple religion I have found greatest comfort and blessing. ? Whatever her origins, it is clear that Menken was fervently Jewish in her adult life. After moving to Cincinnati with her first and only Jewish husband, Alexander Isaacs Menken, Adah learned Hebrew fluently, studied classical Jewish texts, and contributed many poems and essays to The Israelite, a weekly founded by Rabbi Isaac M. Wise. Her poems indicate a passionate temperament, deeply committed to a kind of proto-Zionism and even messianism. Many are collected in the posthumously published volume Infelicia [this volume]. Menken viewed herself as a modern Deborah, calling on Jews to rise up against persecution in Turkey and protesting the kidnapping of a six-year-old Jewish boy in Bologna by representatives of the Catholic Church. She was one of the few Jews in America to protest when Lionel Nathan was denied the seat in the English Parliament to which he had been elected. And, at the height of her acting career, she refused to perform on Jewish High Holidays. On her deathbed at age thirty-three, suffering from what may have been peritonitis or tuberculosis (or both) , and treated by the personal doctor of Napoleon III, Menken was visited by a rabbi. Adah Isaacs Menken died on August 10, 1868, in Paris. She is buried in the Jewish section of Montparnasse Cemetery? (Ackerman, 2014) . The book is also cited in Podeschi, J. B. Dickens & Dickensiana, ; B295(2) ; Wolff, R. L. 19th cent. Fiction, ; 4738. OCLC lists 28 copies of this rare first printing. Light wear to cloth, stains to title and half title, otherwise a nice clean book, about Very Good- Condition. (AMR-45-45)

        Album

      Nogent - le - Rotrou, Beaune, Courville, Villebon, Juin - Août 1868. in - 8 oblong, 34 dessins à la mine de plomb demi - chagrin havane Juin - Août 1868, Juin - Août 1868, , in - 8 oblong, 34 dessins à la mine de plomb, demi - chagrin havane, Album de dessins réalisé dans un carnet oblong relié, destiné à cet usage, avec le mot "Album" en lettres dorées frappé sur le plat supérieur. Il contient 33 dessins, la plupart humoristiques, relatant le quotidien d'une famille de Nogent - le - Rotrou, les Hommey. Il ouvre sur le portrait caricatural de Charles Hommey, figure plusieurs membres de la famille, dont le chien Pacha, quelques scènes et vues bucoliques - le jardin de Madame Louis Hommey, les concerts du dimanche soir à Nogent, la foire de Nogent, etc - ; l'ensemble est dépeint par un regard amusé et bienveillant sur la petite société de cette ville du Perche, ses paysans portant leurs costumes et coiffes traditionnels et ses évènements locaux, gentiment raillés par le dessinateur qui évoque plusieurs fois la gazette locale, le Nogentais. Évocation d'un voyage effectué en août de Courville à Villebon, où les familles H[ommey] et G, sagement alignées comme des canetons, sont accueillies par un pied de nez d'Henri IV. Un dernier dessin, d'une main différente, est signé E.H. : il représente une rue de Nogent - le - Rotrou, avec au premier plan une maison à échauguettes, et au fond le château Saint - Jean. L'auteur de ces dessins pourrait être un M. G... (Giot? Gion?), proche ou affilié aux Hommey, et dont la signature apparait en regard du dessin n° 15, à la suite d'une pseudo - lettre adressée au rédacteur du Nogentais : "Je soussigné, témoin oculaire, certifie avoir mangé des poissons de Mr G. C. et les avoir trouvé excellents. Je certifie en outre que Mr G. C. n'avait rien dans les manches ni dans les poches. A. G..." Le dessin en regard représente 5 hommes dans une barque sur un lac, dont l'un se tenant à l'avant manie une grande poêle à frire d'où jaillissent des petits poissons qui s'en vont directement dans la bouche des autres occupants. La légende indique "Friture miraculeuse. (Voir le Nogentais du 2 août 1868)". Carnet qui est de la même main que le dessinateur d'un "Album" réalisé à Alexandrie en juin - juillet 1857 et qui figure les mêmes personnes (voir notre référence 65165). La famille Hommey est établie dans l'Orne et le Perche. Plusieurs de ses membres ont fait partie de la Société historique et archéologique de l'Orne fondée en 1882 : Joseph, docteur à Sée, Charles, notaire à Alençon, des banquiers dans la même ville (Achille et Léon) et, toujours à Alençon, un prêtre. Bel album aux dessins charmants, émouvant témoignage d'une famille bourgeoise du Second Empire. Feuillets déréglés, retenus entre eux par des bandes adhésives

Some previous owner's names and notations in neat ink and pencil on the endsheets and pastedowns of each volume, otherwise the pages are clean and unmarked. These four works were the only books published in the Deseret Alphabet. The print runs for the Book of Mormon are usually cited as five-hundred, making this one of the rarer Book of Mormons. The two readers were based on the McGuffey manuals, and were introduced in public schools of the Territory in 1868. The Deseret Alphabet was introduced in 1854 and was created by Parley P. Pratt, Heber C. Kimball and George D. Watt. Made up of thirty-eight characters( apparently it was and partially based on Pitman shorthand) to correlate with basic sounds in the English language, the Deseret Alphabet was intended to be used to help simplify the principles of the English language. The Deseret News announced in its issue of January 19, 1854, "The Board [of Regents] have held frequent sittings this winter, with the sanguine hope of simplifying the English Language, and especially its orthography. After many fruitless attempts to render the common alphabet of the day subservient to their purpose, they found it expedient to invent an entirely new and original set of characters." Although only a written language, Brigham Young had high hopes for the new language, firmly believing it would unite the many foreign converts that were streaming into Utah from Europe. The creation of the language was one of the more unusual ideas of Brigham Young, and never was fully embraced by the Mormons. The Deseret Alphabet was abandoned shortly after Young's death.

        The Variation Of Animals And Plants, InTwo Volumes.

      London - John Murray 1868 - A first edition of Charles Darwins follow-up to On The Origin Of Species, in two volumes, which contains extensive study of plants under domestication. In chapter XXVII Darwin gives a description of what he called pangenesis, which is a theory of heredity. Darwin himself believed that this was the most critical part of the book, and pursued comment from his friends and colleagues. Few of them were as enthusiastic about the theory as he was, but he was generally pleased with the the popular reviews that the work received. The book was large and dense by the authors own admission, and sold only 5,000 copies in his lifetime. It was later recognised, however, for its importance in attempting to describe heredity by a common principle. Condition: Rebacked expertly in half calf with gilt detailing to the spines. Externally very smart, with some rubbing and marksto the boards, and light general shelfware. The spines have been rebound, and are unblemished. Internally bright and clean throughout, and firmly bound. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
