        Small craft warnings. A New Directions Book. Book Club Edition.

      92 Seiten (1 Blatt) mit Frontispiz von Fred Voelpel. 8, gebundene Ausgabe, Leinen mit Schutzumschlag, dieser sauber in Folie eingeschlagen, Schutzumschlag-Fotografie: Felipe Napoles, Gestaltung von Gertrude Huston, auf dem fliegenden Vorsatz mit Kurzwidmung und Signatur von Tennessee Williams, sauberes, frisches Exemplar im Bestzustand, mit beiliegendem Echtheitszertifikat. Tennessee Williams (* 26. März 1911 in Columbus, Bundesstaat Mississippi - + 25. Februar 1983 in New York City eigentlich Thomas Lanier Williams III) war ein US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller. Den Spitznamen Tennessee erhielt er von Collegefreunden an der University of Missouri, weil er den Akzent, der im Bundesstaat Tennessee gesprochen wird, sprach. Seine Großeltern, bei denen er oft und gern zu Besuch war, lebten immer noch dort, was für seinen Akzent prägend war. Das in Hollywood zunächst abgelehnte Script für Die Glasmenagerie markierte 1944 in Chicago Williams ersten Bühnenerfolg. Das Stück Die tätowierte Rose (seinem Lebensgefährten Frank Merlo gewidmet) erhielt den Tony Award als bestes Schauspiel. Es wurde 1950 ebenfalls in Chicago uraufgeführt. Kritiker definieren den Stil seiner Schauspiele als Southern Gothic (Südstaatengotik). 1948 und 1955 wurde Williams für seine Stücke Endstation Sehnsucht (A Streetcar Named Desire) und Die Katze auf dem heißen Blechdach (Cat On a Hot Tin Roof) mit dem Pulitzerpreis.

        "Foreign Letters - The Terminus Stores" - Kowloon

      Tsingtao [Qingdao], Hong Kong, Amoy [Xiamen], Wusung [Shanghai], Chefoo [Yantai], Yokohama, Hakodate, Port Arthur, 1911-1912. Journal of manuscript retained copies of letters and diary notes made by German naval engineer H.L.A. Heine while serving onboard Scharnhorst, during and after the Chinese Revolution, with a few hand sketched diagrams within the text. Together with two pencil drawings of nautical scenes inscribed by the artists and measuring approximately 14,5 x 10 cm, and one black and white photograph of a group of German Navy officers perhaps including Heine himself, the photograph measuring approximately 11 x 8 cm. Qto. Approximately 390 pages in manuscript, written in ink single sided onto thin tissue leafs, a scant few integral blanks. Text is almost entirely in German. Volume measures approximately 22,5 x 27 cm, blue cloth boards titled in English and Chinese to front "Foreign Letters: The Terminus Stores. Kowloon." SMS Scharnhorst was an armored cruiser of the Imperial German Navy, the lead ship of her class, assigned to the German East Asia Squadron based in Tsingtao in 1909. After arriving, she replaced the cruiser Fürst Bismarck as the squadron flagship, a position she would hold for the rest of her career. Over the next five years, she went on several tours of various Asian ports to show the flag for Germany. She frequently carried the squadron commanders to meet with Asian heads of state and was present in Japan for the coronation of the Taisho Emperor 30 July 1912. Attached to the China Station of the German Navy and spending some two years at this post, Hans Ludwig Adolf Heine, 'marine ingenieur, SMS Scharnhorst,' wrote several letters, to family and friends, and also to notable business firms. All of the correspondences are dated, with location also given. Several of the letters were written at Tsingtao, being the ship's base port in China. To demonstrate German presence in the Far East, also to augment political and trade relations, frequent tours were made along the coast of China to the Japanese islands. Surely, he would have observed some fascinating communities and situations. For example, he was in Port Arthur [now called Lüshunkou District] on 5 September 1911 only six years after the siege which took place during the Russo-Japanese War. Yokohama was also a port of call later the same month. In December 1911 he is in Hakodate, Japan. He was also in Japan after the death of Emperor Meiji the Great, when his successor Emperor Taisho was given the throne. At least one voyage in 1912 was made as far as Vladivostok in Russia, during which an eight-page letter was penned and contains references to the Russian city, as well as Peking, and torpedo boats in Tientsin [Tianjin]. From January to May 1912 he wrote from Wusung or while anchored off the Wusung Küste [coast]. At the time, Wusung was a separate small port town; it has since become a sub-district of Baoshan in northern Shanghai. Details of Chinese custom, geography and climate, events of the time, as well as his observations of the people's way of life, fill the pages addressed to his personal acquaintances. Towards the end of the volume, he describes the great Tian Shan mountain range, presented with a simple drawing. In a couple of instances he seems to be recording expenses for ship repairs, including the keel. Some letters contain numeric figures or prices. One lists places such as Sumatra, Celebes, Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Japan, which may be the locations where he was trading. A letter to the firm Wolf & Co. of Hamburg was penned at Amoy. At Tsingtao 2.5.1911, he transcribes eight letters which he wrote to various German businessmen and manufacturing firms, including Speidel et Cie. and others in Saigon, Singapore, and Shanghai. [F. W. Speidel was a famous German in Ho Chi Minh City during the early 1900s. His company, Speidel et Cie, was one of the biggest German businesses in the city, trading oil lamps, oil, and providing services ranging from rice milling, to imports, exports, shipping and marine insurance. Founded by German investor Theodore Speidel in 1868, it was one of the first foreign companies opened in Vietnam.] Evidently, Heine was bilingual. At least two letters are in English, one written at Chefoo 2 December 1911, as follows, "Dear Annie, Your card reached me at Tsingtao... A year ago you wrote to me that John was in New Zealand... I have been out here now a year, one more year and I shall go home." Heine returned Germany, by way of Siberia in 1912. He settled in Bremen, continuing work in his specialized field as an engineer, but also became an importer/exporter of goods, quite possibly having made some excellent business connections whilst abroad.

        Atlas zur Klinik der Killianschen Tracheo-Bronchoskopie. Farbige Tafeln nach pathologisch-anatomischen Präparaten von Fällen, die im Leben mit Hilfe der Tracheo-Bronchoskopie untersucht waren.

      Würzburg, Curt Kabitsch, 1911, Folio, 3 Bl., 20 Bl. Tafelerklärungen, 1 Bl., 20 farbchromolith. Tafeln und 20 bedruckte transparente Deckblätter, feiner Halbledereinband zarter Stempel auf Titel. Erste und einzige Ausgabe dieses sehr seltenen und kostbaren Atlas mit sorgfältig gezeichneten Abbildungen in natürlicher Größe!Text in deutscher, französischer und englischer Sprache. "Erneuerung erhielt die Laryngologie durch Killian's Methode der Bronchoskopie, die ihm Weltruf verschaffte."VORWORT: "Seit vielen Jahren habe ich mich bemüht, die Tracheo-Bronchoskopie in klinischen Fällen zu verwerten und sie zur Begründung und Vertiefung der Diagnose insbesondere bei raumbeengenden Tumoren des Brustraumes heranzuziehen. Der Erfinder Killian selbst hatte das Beispiel hierfür gegeben und H. von Schroetter (Klinik der Bronchoskopie 1906) hat sich auch um diesen Zweig der Endoskopie die grössten Verdienste erworben. Bei diesem Bestreben bin ich in gleicher Weise vom Chirurgen und den Internisten unseres Friedrichstädter Krankenhauses unterstützt worden. Ihnen spreche ich auch an dieser Stelle meinen Dank aus. Auch Kollegen aus der Stadt haben mir gelegentlich Fälle zugewiesen. Will man über den Wert oder Unwert einer klinischen Untersuchungsmethode eine Entscheidung herbeiführen und dabei gleichzeitig an das eigene Können einen scharfen kritischen Maßstab legen, so kann man dies nur mit Hilfe der alten Lehrmeisterin aller medizinischen Disziplinen, der pathologischen Anatomie. Darum habe ich bei allen Fällen, die ich in vivo untersucht habe, und die letal endeten, die Sektion durchzusetzen versucht. Bei den Krankenhausinsassen war dies ein leichtes, da ich mich hier insbesondere der tatkräftigen Hilfe Geh.-Rat Schmorls zu erfreuen hatte. In der freien Praxis war es oft recht schwer, zuweilen auch trotz jahrelanger Beobachtung nicht möglich. Die gewonnenen Präparate habe ich durch Herrn Kunstmaler Boerner in möglichster Naturtreue malen lassen. Auf diese Weise bin ich allmählich zu einer stattlichen Anzahl von Bildern gelangt. Einen Teil derselben habe ich im Verein deutscher Laryngologen zu Heidelberg 1909, eine weitere Anzahl bei der Dresdener Tagung im vorigen Jahre demonstriert. Sie fanden den Beifall der Fachgenossen. Killian insbesondere sprach den Wunsch aus, sie möchten als Atlas publiziert werden. Nachdem ich in Herrn Curt Kabitzsch in Würzburg einen Verleger gefunden habe, der für eine in jeder Beziehung künstlerische Wiedergabe der Originale kein Opfer gescheut hat, übergebe ich die Bilder, erläutert durch kurze Krankengeschichten, hiermit der Öffentlichkeit. Den tracheoskopischen Befund bei den einzelnen Fällen habe ich immer nur in Worten gegeben, auf eine bildliche Darstellung absichtlich verzichtet, weil solchen Bildern eine zu starke subjektive Auffassung anhaften muss. Dass ich auch öfters zu Fehldiagnosen gelangt bin, wird jeder aus den Krankengeschichten ersehen. Ich hätte hie und da den Wunsch gehabt, sorgfältig auseinanderzusetzen, welche Momente mich auf die falsche Bahn geführt haben.Das würde aber den gegebenen Raum überschritten haben. Ich hoffe zuversichtlich, dass wir durch Weiterarbeiten auf dem hier beschrittenem Wege, durch Sammeln pathologisch-anatomischer Befunde von solchen Fällen, die wir im Leben genau endoskopiert haben, zu einer immer grösseren Sicherheit in der Diagnosestellung gelangen werden. Die folgenden Tafeln sollen die engeren Fachgenossen unterstützen bei der Deutung eigener Befunde. Die Internisten aber möchten sie davon überzeugen, dass sie sich selbst im Lichte stehen, wenn sie, im Bewusstsein des hohen Wertes ihrer alten Untersuchungsmethoden, der neuen länger die Tür verschliessen. Die Tracheo-Bronchoskopie macht keine derselben unentbehrlich, auch nicht ihre nur wenig ältere Schwester die Röntgenuntersuchung. Wo sie aber neben ihr anwendbar ist, dann unterscheiden sich ihre Ergebnisse wie der lebende Mensch sich unterscheidet - von seinem Schatten." Dresden, im Juni 1911, M. Mann.

Februar 1983 in New York City eigentlich Thomas Lanier Williams III) war ein US-amerikanischer Schriftsteller. Den Spitznamen Tennessee erhielt er von Collegefreunden an der University of Missouri, weil er den Akzent, der im Bundesstaat Tennessee gesprochen wird, sprach. Seine Großeltern, bei denen er oft und gern zu Besuch war, lebten immer noch dort, was für seinen Akzent prägend war. Das in Hollywood zunächst abgelehnte Script für Die Glasmenagerie markierte 1944 in Chicago Williams ersten Bühnenerfolg. Das Stück Die tätowierte Rose (seinem Lebensgefährten Frank Merlo gewidmet) erhielt den Tony Award als bestes Schauspiel. Es wurde 1950 ebenfalls in Chicago uraufgeführt. Kritiker definieren den Stil seiner Schauspiele als Southern Gothic (Südstaatengotik). 1948 und 1955 wurde Williams für seine Stücke Endstation Sehnsucht (A Streetcar Named Desire) und Die Katze auf dem heißen Blechdach (Cat On a Hot Tin Roof) mit dem Pulitzerpreis.

        Behind Turkish Lattices. The Story of a Turkish Woman's Life.

      Philadelphia, Lippincott, 1911. 8vo. Original green cloth, lettered in gilt, top edge gilt, illustrated in white and gilt; pp. ix, 179, frontispiece and numerous plates after photographs; minimal rubbing to cloth, text a little brown-spotted, otherwise very good. First edition of a scarce and important title. 'Hester Donaldson Jenkins (1869-1941), a professor at the American College for Girls in Constantinople from 1900-1909, wrote enthusiastically about the Young Turks, who in 1908 established a constitutional monarchy in the Ottoman Empire. They seemed to Jenkins to promise new freedoms for Ottoman women. In this book Jenkins uses her own observations of Constantinople, her students, and their families to construct an account of a typical Turkish Muslim womans life cycle at this turning point in Ottoman history. She intends her comments on childhood, education, marriage, polygamy, and divorce to correct Western misapprehensions and she notes how Ottoman women selectively adopted Western customs, such as European clothing, and increasingly practiced monogamy. Jenkins' corrective is only partial, however, for she describes Turkish women as childishly charming but sadly ignorant and in need of the uplifting influences of Western education. In its confidence in the bright prospects of American influence and Ottoman reform, this book captures an optimistic moment in which social progress seemed to prevail against the looming social and ethnic divisions of the Balkan and First World Wars' (blurb from a modern re-edition).

        In Northern Mists. Arctic Exploration in Early Times. Translated by Arthur G. Chater.

      London: William Heinemann, 1911 - 2 volumes, large octavo. Original grey-blue combed cloth, spines lettered in gilt, front boards with semi-circular gilt design of low sun over sea and mountains with approaching Viking longship, lettered in gilt, enclosed within concentric blind double panels. Volume I with very short nick at head of spine, corners very slightly bumped, top edge of volume II a little dusty, touch of foxing to fore-edges. An excellent copy. Tipped-in coloured frontispieces (with tissue guards), numerous illustrations and maps in the text; title pages printed in blue & black. First edition in English. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half title of volume I: "To Mrs. G. Lewis from her friend Fridtjof Nansen, London Nov. 3rd. 1911"; volume II inscribed on the front free endpaper (in a secretarial hand): "For Mrs. George Lewis, in sincere friendship from the Publisher, 2. 09. 1911". A very appealing provenance that highlights a well-documented aspect of Nansen's character: the great Norwegian explorer cut a striking figure and enjoyed a reputation as a womaniser. Roland Huntford writes in his biography of Nansen that when in London: "[he] had at last moved out of his hotel into suitable rooms. They were modest enough, in a block of service flats at 36 Victoria Street, convenient for Parliament, Whitehall, the Foreign Office - and Buckingham Palace. The premises had been found by an admirer called Marie Lewis. She was the German-born daughter-in-law of Sir George Lewis, a famous criminal lawyer, who belonged to King Edward's raffish set, had infiltrated the underworld, had saved his Majesty himself from various scrapes, and was said to know enough to ruin half the Dukes and Duchesses of England. During the summer, Nansen had broken a genuine engagement with [Sir John] Scott Keltie, where he would have been introduced to Captain Scott, in order to go down and see Marie Lewis at the seaside resort of Sheringham [Norfolk] instead. 'I cannot blame you,' was Keltie's mild reproach. 'I think Sheringham is an excuse for committing any crime'. For her part, Mrs Lewis had reported to Nansen chattily after his departure: 'we have been bathing every day and of course my sister has missed you in the water and also for giving her the finishing touches with powder'". In Northern Mists is a handsomely produced book and was undertaken by Nansen at the request of the Royal Geographical Society: "this book owes its existence to a rash promise made some years ago to my friend [the geographer] Dr. J. Scott Keltie". It is an historical survey of the opening of the Arctic from classical antiquity to Cabot and the Portuguese discoveries in the north-west, and includes an account of the Viking discovery of America. There appear to have been two variants of the cloth binding: with the front cover lettered and panelled in black or - as here - lettered in gilt and panelled in blind; the latter could be classified the superior of the two. We have had another copy signed, to Sir Edward Grey (also dated 3 November 1911) in the same binding. In Northern Mists was originally published in Norwegian earlier the same year. A very smart copy with a piquant provenance. Arctic Bibliography 11993. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        A collection of his first editions in excellent condition.

      London & Madras: various publishers, 1851-1911 - 30 works in 52 volumes, various formats. Original cloth, boards or wrappers. A full description is available on request. Generally in excellent condition, several items exceptional. Plates and maps throughout. A superb collection of first editions from the corpus of the great scholar-adventurer Richard F. Burton (1821-1890), generally in excellent condition throughout, including presentation copies of two his most sought-after titles, the Personal Narrative of a Pilgrimage to El-Medinah and Mecca (1855-6), and Unexplored Syria (1872), accompanied by a superb association copy of Two Trips to Gorilla Land (1876), and famous rarities such as the Guide Book, A Pictorial Pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina (1865), in the original wrappers, and a set of Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana (1883) in the original parts, which Penzer, as early as 1923, declared "practically unobtainable". The collection covers the entirety of Burton's career, from his early years as a soldier in the service of the East India Company to his renowned excursions in Africa and Arabia, and also includes excellent copies of his attractive Icelandic journal, Ultima Thule (1875) and The City of the Saints (1861), his noted account of a voyage from California to Salt Lake City. Many of the titles are in genuinely exceptional condition, coming from the celebrated travel libraries of Franklin Brooke-Hitching and Humphrey Winterton. These include superlative copies of Sindh (1851), his rare ethnographic study, and Zanzibar (1872), which Casada considered his most important African work. Other rarities demonstrate that Burton was far from being a doctrinaire soldier of empire, notably Stone Talk (1865), his brilliant critique of British imperialism printed in a run of 200 copies, of which most were destroyed by Lady Burton for fear of damage to her husband's reputation; finally, a copy of the extremely uncommon first edition, first issue of the Kasîdah (Couplets) of Hajî Abdû El-Yezdî (1880) underlines Burton's accomplishments as a student of Arabic and other eastern literatures. Together this collection underlines the judgement that "although Burton is most often thought of as a traveller, explorer, or linguist, he is probably best understood as a writer" (ODNB). All items are octavo unless stated. 1. Goa, and the Blue Mountains; Or, Six Months of Sick Leave. London: Richard Bentley, 1851. First (and only complete) edition of Burton's first book. Original tan cloth, pale markings and scattered light cockling to sides, remains an excellent, bright copy. Penzer pp. 37-8. 2. Scinde; Or, the Unhappy Valley. London: Richard Bentley, 1851.

Le 'Legum Flosculi' et le 'Brocardica Juris' sont des répertoires de sentences faisant office de tables utilisées pour consulter le corpus juridique.
