        handsignierte Notiz ORIGINAL SIGNIERT original handwritten and signed note

      - Handsignierte Notiz 5 x 20 cm. original handwritten and signed note dekorativ mit Foto auf schwarzen Fotokarton montiert (reversibel) tadelloser Zustand Rudolf-Christoph Freiherr von Gersdorff (* 27. März 1905 in Lüben; ? 27. Januar 1980 in München) war ein deutscher Offizier, zuletzt Generalmajor im Zweiten Weltkrieg sowie Mitglied des aktiven Widerstandes von Offizieren der Wehrmacht gegen Adolf Hitler. Zweiter Weltkrieg[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten] Bei Beginn des Polenfeldzugs war Freiherr von Gersdorff Dritter Generalstabsoffizier (Ic) der 14. Armee. Mit dieser, mittlerweile umbenannt in 12. Armee, wurde er nach Abschluss des Feldzuges an die Westgrenze verlegt. Nach der Zwischenstation beim XII. Armeekorps wurde Freiherr von Gersdorff zum Oberkommando des Heeres (OKH) abkommandiert. Während des Westfeldzugs leitete er als Ia die Führungsabteilung der 86. Infanterie-Division, die als Teil der 12. Armee an dem Vorstoß durch die Ardennen beteiligt war. Für das Unternehmen Barbarossa wurde er im Mai 1941 zur Heeresgruppe B, ab 22. Juni 1941 umbenannt in Heeresgruppe Mitte, versetzt. Dort war er als Verbindungsoffizier der Abwehr Ic und leitete die militärische Aufklärung. Ziel dieser Versetzung war vor allem, ihm den Zugang zum Verschwörerkreis um Henning von Tresckow zu verschaffen. Bis April 1943 entdeckten Freiherr von Gersdorff unterstehende Soldaten der Wehrmacht die Massengräber von über 4000 polnischen Offizieren, Fähnrichen und Beamten, die Einheiten des sowjetischen NKWD in einem Wald unweit des russischen Dorfes Katyn 1940 ermordet hatten (siehe Massaker von Katyn). Von Gersdorff führte dabei die Dienstaufsicht über die Exhumierungen. Er war dabei auch verantwortlich für den Ablauf der Besichtigungsreisen ausländischer Beobachter, die auf Anweisung des Propagandaministers Joseph Goebbels nach Katyn gebracht wurden. Dazu gehörten eine internationale Ärztekommission, Journalisten und Schriftsteller sowie polnische, amerikanische und britische kriegsgefangene Offiziere.[1] Am 1. Februar 1944 trat Freiherr von Gersdorff seinen Dienst als Generalstabschef des LXXXII. Armeekorps an, dessen drei Infanteriedivisionen eine an der französischen Nordküste erwartete alliierte Landung abwehren sollten. Am 28. Juli 1944 wurde er Generalstabschef der 7. Armee, die kurz darauf im Kessel von Falaise eingeschlossen wurde. Für die Planung des erfolgreichen Ausbruchs der Armee erhielt er am 26. August 1944 das Ritterkreuz des Eisernen Kreuzes.[2] Er blieb ? im März 1945 noch zum Generalmajor befördert ? bis zur deutschen Kapitulation bei der 7. Armee. Mitglied des militärischen Widerstands gegen den Nationalsozialismus[Bearbeiten | Quelltext bearbeiten] Kurz nach dem gescheiterten Versuch des Obersten im Generalstab Henning von Tresckow und dessen Vetters Fabian von Schlabrendorff, Hitler am 13. März 1943 durch eine in Smolensk in sein Flugzeug geschmuggelte Bombe zu töten,[3] erklärte sich Freiherr von Gersdorff bereit, ein Selbstmordattentat auf Hitler zu verüben.[4] Am 21. März 1943 eröffnete Hitler zum Heldengedenktag eine Ausstellung sowjetischer Beutewaffen im Berliner Zeughaus. Freiherr von Gersdorff war als Experte abkommandiert, die Ausstellung zu erläutern. Er wollte beim Rundgang Hitler und die anwesende Führungsspitze, darunter Hermann Göring, Heinrich Himmler, Wilhelm Keitel und Karl Dönitz, mit zwei britischen Splitterminen, die er in den Manteltaschen trug, in die Luft sprengen und dabei sein Leben opfern. Nachdem Freiherr von Gersdorff den Säurezünder bereits aktiviert hatte, hastete Hitler durch die Ausstellung, ohne vor Ausstellungsstücken innezuhalten, und verließ das Gebäude schon nach zwei Minuten, während der Zünder eine Mindestzeit von 10 Minuten hatte. Freiherr von Gersdorff konnte den Zünder auf einer Toilette des Zeughauses gerade noch rechtzeitig entschärfen. Nach der gescheiterten Aktion wurde er unmittelbar an die Ostfront zurückbeordert.[5] 1944 verwahrte Freiherr von Gersdorff Sprengstoff und Zünder [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Voyage of the "Discovery"

      London: Charles Scribner's Sons; Smith, Elder, & Co.,, 1905. 2 volumes, large octavo. Original dark blue fine vertical-ribbed cloth, titles gilt to spines, embossed gilt medallions to front boards (reverse and obverse of the medal struck by the RGS), top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Photogravure portrait frontispiece, title pages printed in red and black, 12 colour plates, 158 half-tone photographic plates, 12 further black and white plates, 5 double-page panoramas of which 4 from photographs, 5 maps of which one double-page and 2 folding in end-pockets. Publisher's slip tipped to vol. 1 front free endpaper as issued. Moderate foxing, maps in pockets browned on exposed panels, still a very good, fresh copy, the bindings bright. First edition, first impression, of Scott's official narrative of his first Antarctic expedition, an "elaborate and handsome publication" (Taurus) and a classic of the genre. The 1901-4 voyage of the Discovery was the first scientific expedition to pass two consecutive winters at a high latitude in Antarctica, and made the first extensive land journeys into the interior of the continent; a farthest south of 82°17' was achieved on 30 December 1902. The trip was the beginning of the mutual antipathy between Scott and Shackleton, partly owing to Scott's forcing Shackleton's early return to England on account of illness. Among the civilian scientists was Dr Edward Adrian Wilson, Scott's close friend and confidant on this and his last expedition, where he too was to die; a talented artist, he also contributed watercolours for the attractive frontispieces and several of the plates, including all those in colour. With twenty-eight sledge journeys accomplished, the ice sheet explored, and a comprehensive scientific programme completed, the expedition was a triumph, although the failure of Scott's dogs was an ominous portent.

      Hi, This lot is an 1905 Original Hardback Wisden. In Superb condition The first Hardback that Wisden produced was in 1896, this is the tenth year of the hardback and a year I have found hard to find recently, especially in this condition. This is one of the nicest prewar hardbacks I have seen. The boards are very clean with excellent, extremely bright gilt, a couple of tiny marks to the rear. The spine gilt is very bright and original. The hinges are very strong and the yellow pastedowns are amazing, so bright yellow it is hard to express. The photoplate is very good and internaly a nice clean book. As good as mine on my shelf. Hard to fault, if I had to pick something it is that when the book is on the desk gilt up there is a slight inward movement to the top right hand side of the book. A rare Wisden in superb condition (++) and a very nice price.

Original decorated cloth, the front cover with a block of a ship executed in black and gilt, gilt-lettered on spine, top edges gilt (slightest toning). Provenance: Charles MacA.

This is presumably Richard Curle (1883-1963), Scottish author, traveler, and bibliophile who wrote the earliest critical and biographical wok on Joseph Conrad. 'A Little Boy Lost' is a mystical story about the thrills of nature as seen by a little boy who wanders through the plains, the high Sierras and along the seashore. Animals and mirages take human shape and the spirits of the Rockies and the ocean lure him on.

First edition. "Boys' lost race adventure novel set in the Pacific which introduces an amphibious race with webbed feet." - Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 23. "Ancient races and strange beasts in an unknown land mass in the South Pacific. One race is human, the other is amphibious with webbed feet. This is the author's lest known fantastic novel, yet among his most imaginative, a civilization of immemorial age having for eons been removed from the world in weed-enclosed lands of the South Pacific. Legends of the Toraylians link them to South America and once a giant continent in the Pacific. Their slaves had long since evolved into web-footed frogmen." - Teitler and Locke, By the World Forgot (2013) 63. Bleiler (1978), p. 11. Reginald 00630. Cloth lightly worn at edges, several stains to rear cover, scattered foxing throughout, a sound, good copy. Considered by many to be the author's rarest book. (#153314)

      511 (1) Seiten 8, gebundene Ausgabe, Leinen Sehr rares, numeriertes Exemplar aus einer limitierten Edition, mit der Signatur des Autors auf dem Vorsatz. Dieses Exemplar trägt die Nummer 82 der kleinen Vorzugsausgabe. Absolut neuwertig. Elias Canetti (* 25. Juli 1905 in Russe, Bulgarien - + 14. August 1994 in Zürich) war ein berühmter Schriftsteller und Aphoristiker deutscher Sprache und erhielt 1981 den Literatur-Nobelpreis. "Der weltweite Ruhm dieses erstaunlichen Romans eines Sechsundzwanzigjährigen kam, durch die politischen Ereignisse verzögert, erst spät obwohl das Buch von Thomas Mann, Hermann Broch, Hermann Hesse und anderen in seiner Bedeutung sogleich erkannt und enthusiastisch begrüßt worden war. Heute, mehr als ein halbes Jahrhundert seit seinem ersten Erscheinen (1935), steht fest, daß Die Blendung zu den großen Büchern der europäischen Literatur des 20. Jahrhunderts gehört."

        TRADITION OF THE CHEYENNE INDIANS

      N. P.: Arapaho Bee Print, [1905]., 1905. First edition. First edition. 8vo. Original dark maroon, sewn wrappers with title stamped in gold gilt on the front cover, n. p. (12 pp.), preface, double column, illustrated Seger spent years among the Cheyennes from 1872 onward, had charge of the Arapahoes at Seger Colony, and was at the head of the Cheyenne school when the Northern Cheyennes were removed to Darlington following the Custer massacre. John H. Seger, the author of these memoirs, was born in Ohio in 1846. He enlisted in the Union Army at age 17 and fought in 13 engagements. Afterward he settled in Kansas until he was employed by the Indian agent at Darlington in what is now Oklahoma. A few years later Seger founded the Indian School and town at Colony, Oklahoma. Seger spent the next 50 years among the local Indians. This crudely printed tract contains the Cheyenne narrative of traditions as transmitted by word of mouth from early days. The flood disaster, as they have it, happened in the Upper Missouri Valley. "The material which appears here has been selected for its value in illustrating conditions and characters of early days in Oklahoma.... There is enough to convince anyone that he is thoroughly familiar with the life of early days in western Oklahoma, and that he is a born story-teller who makes the past live for us anew. It is to be regretted that so few historians have his narrative gift."---W.S. Campbell, editor. A very scarce and important narrative of life among the Cheyenne and Arapaho Indians of western Oklahoma. Light wear to top edge of front cover else a near fine copy.
