        The Principles of Sociology

      London - Williams and Norgate, 1893. London - Williams and Norgate, 1893 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce collection of this extensive study of sociology. Fourth thousand. With chapters including Ceremonial Institutions, Political Institutions, Industrial Institutions and Ecclesiastical Institutions. Herbert Spencer (27 April 1820 8 December 1903) was an English philosopher, biologist, sociologist, and prominent classical liberal political theorist of the Victorian era. Spencer read with excitement the original positivist sociology of Auguste Comte. A philosopher of science, Comte had proposed a theory of sociocultural evolution that society progresses by a general law of three stages. Writing after various developments in biology, however, Spencer rejected what he regarded as the ideological aspects of Comte's positivism, attempting to reformulate social science in terms of evolutionary biology. One might broadly describe Spencer's sociology as socially Darwinistic (though strictly speaking he was a proponent of Lamarckism rather than Darwinism). Complete in three volumes. Condition: In cloth bindings with gilt detiling to the front boards. Externally, generally smart, though with some bumping to the spines and a few marks to the boards. Hinges tender, with endpapers working loose. Internally, generally firmly bound, though slightly strained in places. Institutional bookplates and ink stampsto front pastedowns. Pages are generally bright and clean, with just the occasional patch of foxing (heavier to the endpapers). Overall: GOOD..

        "Freisinnige Zukunftsbilder", aus der Reihe:"Politischer Bilderbogen" Nr.3 - Nationalsozialistisches Schrifttum, Verkauf nur zu wissenschaftlichen Zwecken gem. § 86, Abs. 3 und § 86a StGB!

      Dresden, Verlag der Druckerei Glöß, 1893.. (aufgefaltet ca. 50 x 64 cm), gefalteter Bilderbogen. ORDENTLICHES EXEMPLAR, außen leicht unfrisch, die Knickkanten stellenweise fast unmerklich hinterlegt."Der Bilderbogen Nr. 3 thematisiert das Verhalten der Juden in Deutschland, geht allerdings spezifisch auf ihre enge Verbindung mit dem Linksliberalismus ein. Unter dem Titel 'Freisinnige Zukunftsbilder' wird dargestellt, wie es in Deutschland ausschaue, wenn die 'deutsch-blödsinnige Partei' (deutsch-freisinnige Partei) an die Macht käme. Dies sei gleichbedeutend mit einer jüdischen Machtergreifung, denn, so der Text, 'die Zukunft der Freisinnigen ist die Zukunft der Juden'." (Thomas Gräfe, "Antisemitismus in Gesellschaft und Karikatur des Kaiserreichs. Glöß' Politische Bilderbogen 1892-1901"). Die Reihe erschien in 33 Folgen zwischen 1892 und 1901. - Eines der Blätter bezeichnet "S. Horn" (sonst nicht weiter nachweisbar, sicher das Pseudonym des Zeichners), die Texte erschienen anonym, werden aber verlässlich dem Dresdner antisemitischen Schriftsteller Max Bewer zugeschrieben; der Verlag schreibt dazu: "Dieser Bogen ist nach dem Urtheile aller Zeitungen der beste aller bisher erschienenen. Die amtliche "Leipziger Zeitung" rühmt den reichsprudelnden Humor und die Fülle drastischer Erfindung. Die "Freisinnigen Zukunftsbilder" sind ein getreuer Spiegel des deutschen Lebens, falls es sich jemals unter freisinnigen Geiste enthalten sollte. Die gesamte freisinnige Presse verharrte vor diesem Spiegel in verlegenem Schweigen, während im übrigen Deutschland allgemeine Heiterkeit herrschte"
