         Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Berlin, 16. IX. 1883. - 1 S. Folio. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Das Melde'sche Werk über Akustik ist eine Arbeit, die mir ihrer großen Klarheit wegen außerordentlich gefällt. Ich habe mir alle Mühe gegeben, einen Bericht darüber zu schreiben, doch bin ich der Sache nicht gewachsen. Der Inhalt des Buches ist physikalisch, über Musik ist darin so gut wie nichts zu finden. Sie verzeihen mir daher gütigst, wenn ich Ihnen das Werk zurückschicke. Ich hoffe in einiger Zeit Ihnen über einen anderen Gegenstand einen kleinen Aufsatz geben zu können [.]". - Der Privatschüler von August Eduard Grell wurde 1866 Professor der Musik an der Berliner Universität. Er verfaßte "Die Mensuralnoten und Taktzeichen des 15. und 16. Jahrhunderts" (1858). 1883 erschien seine "Akustik".

         Drei Figuren / Trio. Buntstift, Farbkreide und Wasserfarbe auf Papier. Blattgröße: 37,5 x 50 cm. Rechts unten signiert.

      [An den Rändern minimal gewellt, sonst wohlerhaltenes Blatt]. Intenisves, expressives Blatt von Kuhfuss. - Paul Kuhfuss (1883-1960) erhielt seine Ausbildung zunächst an der Königlichen Kunstschule und später an der Königlichen Akademischen Hochschule für bildende Künste (heute UdK) bei Anton von Werner und Philipp Franck. Ab 1913 stellte er regelmäßig u.a. bei der Großen Berliner Kunstausstellung, der Freien Secession und der Berliner Secession aus. Von 1935 bis '45 zog er sich auf Grund von Denunziation und Repressionen zurück und übte öffentlich nur seinen Lehrberuf aus, der ihm materielle Unabhängigkeit sicherte. Nach 1945 war er weiterhin als Lehrer tätig und durfte zunächst wieder ausstellen, geriet aber im Zuge der Formalismusdiskussion auf Grund seiner Position der "Eigengesetzlichkeit der Kunst" selbstredend erneut ins Abseits. - Provenienz: Das Blatt stammt aus dem hier vorliegenden, bisher unbekannten Nachlass der Illustratorin und Bühnenbildnerin Gerda Schafhirt, einer Gefährtin von Kuhfuss, die u.a. den Sommer 1955 mit ihm zusammenlebend und -arbeitend in Born auf dem Darss verbrachte, und ist entsprechend noch nicht bei Hellwich/Röske verzeichnet.

         Photographie originale de Guy de Maupassant avec envoi autographe signé à la comtesse Potocka

      Rare original photographic portrait of the writer in full, realized by Achille Mélandri, enriched with an autograph signed signed "A Madame the Countess Potocka, his respectful friend, Guy de Maupassant".For a long time, Maupassant, like Balzac or Flaubert, was resistant to the diffusion of his portrait in photography as in engraving. In an autograph note kept in the library at Rouen, he summarized his idea on this subject: " I have made an absolute rule to never let my portrait be published whenever I can prevent it. The exceptions took place only by surprise. Our works belong to the public, not our figures. In 1890 he even threatened to sue one of his publishers, Charpentier, for he had inserted his portrait in Les Soirées de Médan . He asked him to recall all the copies in stock to destroy them. He never put his threat into execution but remained of the opinion that the photographs were in the private sphere.This is why the photographic portraits of Maupassant are rare and generally reserved for his relatives. Here he decides to offer it to the Countess Potocka, of whom he was one of the most fervent "Maccabees," or "dead of love," the group of admirers who surrounded the countess. Maupassant had a real passion for this muse, which inspired several characters, including Christiane Andermatt in Mont-Oriol , and Baroness de Frémines in Notre Cœur .To realize this portrait in full, it chose its neighbor of the street Clauzel, Achille Mélandri. Hydropath, poet and photographer of literary and artistic Paris, he had photographed celebrities such as Victor Hugo, André Gill and Sarah Bernhardt. He is famous for having worked with Emile Cohl on a method to animate the photographs that will lead him to the invention of the cartoon.One of the very rare autographed photographs of Maupassant, addressed to the mistress of one of the most important literary and artistic salons of the nineteenth century and loving passion half-confessed to the writer.

Febr. 31). Erstausgabe WG 27. Joachim Ringelnatz (* 7. August 1883 in Wurzen - + 17. November 1934 in Berlin eigentlich Hans Gustav Bötticher) war ein deutscher Schriftsteller, Kabarettist und Maler, der vor allem für humoristische Gedichte um die Kunstfigur Kuttel Daddeldu bekannt ist. Er war bekannt zur Zeit der Weimarer Republik, stand an Popularität den Comedian Harmonists in nichts nach und zählte Schauspieler wie Asta Nielsen und Paul Wegener zu seinen engen Freunden und Weggefährten. Sein teils skurril, expressionistisch, witzig und geistreich geprägtes Werk hat noch einen hohen zeitgenössischen Bekanntheitsgrad. In diesem Werk schildert Ringelnatz unter dem Pseudonym Hester sein Leben in der Zeit des Ersten Weltkrieges. Während dieser Zeit diente er sich bei der Marine vom Matrosen bis zum Leutnant hoch und meldete sich freiwillig zu Kampfeinsätzen. Dabei diente Ringelnatz an wechselnden Orten, meist in der Nähe von Cuxhaven. Auch seine Urlaubserlebnisse finden in seinen Ausführungen Platz.

         Photographie originale de Guy de Maupassant avec envoi autographe signé à la comtesse Potocka

      1883 - - Paris s.d. [1883], 10,7x16,4cm (image), 20,3x29,2cm (planche), 1 photographie monté sur carton. - Rare portrait photographique original de l'écrivain en pied, réalisé par Achille Mélandri, enrichi d'un envoi autographe signé « A Madame la Comtesse Potocka, son respectueux ami, Guy de Maupassant ». Pendant longtemps, Maupassant, à l'instar de Balzac ou Flaubert, s'est montré rétif à la diffusion de son portrait en photographie comme en gravure. Dans une note autographe conservée à la bibliothèque de Rouen, il a résumé son idée à ce sujet : « Je me suis fait une loi absolue de ne jamais laisser publier mon portrait toutes les fois que je peux l'empêcher. Les exceptions n'ont eu lieu que par surprise. Nos œuvres appartiennent au public, pas nos figures. » En 1890, il a même menacé de poursuivre l'un de ses éditeurs, Charpentier, car celui-ci avait inséré son portrait dans Les Soirées de Médan. Il lui demanda de rappeler tous les exemplaires en stock pour les détruire. Il ne mit jamais sa menace à exécution mais resta d'avis que les photographies relevaient de la sphère privée. C'est pourquoi les portraits photographiques de Maupassant sont rares et généralement réservés à ses proches. Ici, il décide de l'offrir à la comtesse Potocka dont il fut l'un des plus fervents « Macchabées », le groupe d'admirateurs qui entourait la comtesse. Maupassant éprouvait une véritable passion pour cette muse qui lui inspira plusieurs personnages dont Christiane Andermatt dans Mont-Oriol, et la baronne de Frémines dans Notre Cœur. Pour réaliser ce portrait en pied, il a choisi son voisin de la rue Clauzel, Achille Mélandri. Hydropathe, poète et photographe du Paris littéraire et artistique, il avait photographié des célébrités telles Victor Hugo, André Gill ou encore Sarah Bernhardt. Il est célèbre pour avoir travaillé avec Emile Cohl à une méthode pour animer les photographies qui conduira ce dernier à l'invention du dessin animé. Il ne semble pas y avoir d'autres exemplaires de ce cliché dans les collections françaises ni dans l'Album Maupassant de la bibliothèque de la Pléiade. En revanche, ce cliché a vraisemblablement été utilisé pour l'illustration de l'article à propos de Guy de Maupassant écrit par Blanche Roosevelt dans la revue Woman's world. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] A photographic portrait of the writer on foot, by Achille Mélandri, a hydropath and neighbor of Maupassant at 19 rue Clauzel. Signed autograph "to the Countess Potocka, his respectful friend, Guy de Maupassant". [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

         Autograph Letter Signed, to "Monsieur Knoedler", with an original pen-and-ink sketch of Poissy

      Poissy, 1883. 3 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Fine. Provenance: Dr. Max Thorek, with his collector's stamp. 3 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. To His American Dealer Knoedler, with a Sketch of Poissy. A fine letter to the New York dealer, [Roland?] Knoedler, with sketch in purple ink at the head of the page, of the village of Poissy (Meissonier's adopted home) and the Possy bridge. Meissonier writes: " ... You certainly won't have my painting "de la rose" this season. I'd like to show it at the Salon, and will do my best to finish it on time, but I'm afraid that I'll be too late ... I should love to be able to believe that this will be my most important painting, and I would be much saddened if it were to leave France without having been shown ... I shall not inform you of the unfortunate events of our poor country -- the death of Gambetta affected me deeply, and what's going on now saps my morale as a republican and a patriot -- but i don't want to bother you with my dark thoughts ... Our friend Knight is working also for the Salon and I like his painting very much ... So, my dear Monsieur Knoedler, the school of Poissy is still a famous school ... and now I bid you farewell for the moment, and send you my best wishes across the ocean ... "
