        Der Groyser Kundes The Big Stick [or The Big Prankster] Volume V A Jornal far humor, witz un satire [ = A magazine for humor, wit and satire] Fifth year

      New York 1913 - Volume V numbers 1 to 48 (November 28, 1913). Numbers 49 (Dec. 5, 1913) is listed as Volume VI. to Number 52 (December 26, 1913), listed as Volume VI. Der Groyser Kundes The Big Stick or The Big Prankster was a New York City, Yiddish language satirical weekly which ran from 1909 until 1927. It was entitled Der Kibitser for its first year of production. Founded by the humorist Yosef Tunkel (or Der tunkeler, his pen name, meaning 'The dark one'), the paper was taken on by Jacob Marinoff when Tunkel left to work for an established paper in Warsaw. It consciously set itself up in opposition to the serious Yiddish-language press of the time such as the socialist Forverts. Though, naturally, more traditional religious Judaism did not escape its satire: The 1915 "Christmas" edition included a parodic conversation between Jesus and the prophet Elijah. Despite its irreverent attitude to everything, it also published poetry by Di Yunge ("The Young Ones") poets such as Moyshe-Leyb Halpern and Zuni Maud. At its height it had a circulation of 35,000 but folded in 1927 due to flagging sales. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Antarctic Expedition - Scott Memorial Plaque

      [c.1913]. Embossed bronzed copper plaque (255 x 355 mm), in original ebonized wood frame (framed size, 367 × 455 mm). Wide border of laurels, twined with a wreath bearing the names of those who died on the expedition, at the corners are roundels with portraits of Scott, his wife Kathleen, and their son Peter, and the cross atop Scott's grave cairn; the border encloses a quartered panel with four scenes from the expedition, a dogsled pulling away from the Terra Nova, the Pole party man-hauling a sled, the party at the Pole, and the graves of Scott, Scott, Wilson and Bowers, a central 'boss' has a 'portrait' of Nigger, the expedition cat. Small metal label with the inscription "dulce et decorum est pro patria mori" - "A sweet and fitting thing it is to die for one's country". Some minor wear to the frame, with a few expert repairs, but overall in excellent condition. Attractive commemorative souvenir, Scott's widow herself received a silver version of the piece. The Polar scenes are based on photographs by Bowers and Ponting that appeared in issues of the Daily Mirror - the newspaper had exclusive rights to all expedition photographs - for either 12 February, the day on which Scott's death was announced, or the "Captain Scott Number" of 21 May, 1913, which published the first images of Scott's party at the Pole.

        A vintage gelatin silver photograph (approximately 150 x 200 mm) taken outdoors, against a close backdrop of a grandstand, of a distinguished-looking Grace in the twilight of his life. Seated next to him is Richard Norman Rowsell Blaker (1879-1950) and his young son, also Richard (1909-1967). Richard senior played 119 matches for Kent (1898-1908), 'a hard-hitting batsman and a fine slip fielder. He helped Kent carry off the County Championship in 1906, and was President of the club when he died. His twin daughters, Barbara and Joan . were prominent members of the Kent women's cricket team and both played for England' (Wisden Book of Obituaries). In this photograph, Richard junior looks to be four or five years old; at that time, 1913 or 191

        Typed letter signed in full to the Austrian conductor, composer and musicologist [Dr.] Kurt List (1913-1970)

      - The two books mentioned in the letter were both published posthumously: Structural Functions of Harmony in 1954, Fundamentals of Musical Composition in 1967. The "other cantata" mentioned in the letter is possibly "Der neue Klassizismus" from Drei Satiren, op. 28. The reference to Furtwängler points to his denazification trial. Nathan Broder (1905- 1967) was involved editorially with New York publishers G. Schirmer and W. W. Norton, and taught at Columbia University (1946-62). Felix Greissle (1894-1982) was a student of Schoenberg in Vienna. His sister Gertrud became Schoenberg's second wife. 1 page. Quarto, 278 x 215 mm. Dated Los Angeles, March 2, 1947. Carbon copy, with original autograph signature in ink. With Schoenberg's name and address handstamped to upper left corner. In English.Schoenberg responds to a letter from List with questions about music criticism. He discusses his current projects: the books Structural Functions of Harmony and [Fundamentals of] Musical Composition, and a volume of "texts" to be published in German. He accepts List's offer to have his Kol Nidre, op. 39, distributed by New Music, despite doubts that the publisher is capable of the necessary promotional work and gives some instructions involving Nathan Broder from Schirmer and Schoenberg's brother-in-law, Felix Greissle, then at Edward B. Marx Music Corporation, New York:"Problems of music criticism have become so remote to me in the past 14 years that I could answer your questions only in the most superficial manner and totally in the negative. I am so busy with finishing my two books. I ought . to mail the manuscripts for a volume of my 'Texts' to Germany, or rather to Vienna. I did not respond to your offer for my 'Kol Nidre' to be distributed on royalties by New Music. Frankly: I doubt that New Music can handle this successfully because it requires propagenda to get conductors to perform it like another cantata&#151;which they also do not perform."In a postscript, Schoenberg regrets List did not publish his letter about Wilhelm Furtwängler "at the crucial time; he was a friend of mine and would have enjoyed it." Manuscript annotation in red crayon to lower left corner: "copy."Creased at folds; some minor stains from carbon; small tears to lower edge.

First Edition. Rare. Moldenhauer pp. 706-7. The work was re-numbered op. 6 in 1920. "This work, composed 1909, applies the newly explored possibilities of atonal instrumental composition to the largest orchestra for which Webern ever wrote... But these immense masses of sound are hardly ever used as a whole... Like many of his early works, op. 6 was conceived in reaction to the death of Webern's mother (1906)... In 1928, Webern prepared a second version of the pieces, which... reduces the hypertrophic orchestra to standard size." Manfred Angerer, website of Universal-Edition.

        Wings and the Child; or The Building of Magic Cities

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1913., 1913. FIRST EDITION. Extremely scarce in dustwrapper. Publisher's pictorial green cloth with bright gilt titles to faded spine, lightly rubbed, a little spotting to top edge, in its illustrated dustwrapper, with one small chip to spine top. Illustrated with pictures by George Barraud and from photographs. Edith Nesbit (1858 - 1924), English novelist and short story writer, famous for her Ghost stories, Gothic tales, mysteries, and above all, her classic children's books, who was credited with having invented the children's adventure story. A mischievous, tomboyish child who grew up to be an unconventional adult, E Nesbit (she always used the plain initial to hide her gender) wrote for children after years of successful writing for adult magazines. She was asked to write about her childhood but instead of facts chose to describe her happy girlhood in fiction. Her first great success was The Story of the Treasure-Seekers (1899), followed by Five Children and It (1902), The New Treasure Seekers (1904), The Phoenix and The Carpet (1904), The Story of the Amulet (1906) The Enchanted Castle (1907), The House of Arden (1908) and The Magic City (1910). Her most celebrated story remains The Railway Children (1906), and many of her works have been successfully filmed, and many of her stories have been bestsellers for decades and continue to be enjoyed today.

Minimal fleckig, mittig gefaltet, sonst von ausgezeichneter Erhaltung. An Kurt Kluge, bei dem sich Niebelschütz für das Ausbleiben eines Antwortbriefes entschuldigt: "Ausser meiner Frau schreibe ich seit Monaten so gut wie keinem Menschen mehr, wurde bis in die letzten Reserven meiner Physis absorbiert zum (?) vierten Bande einer barocken Riesen-Utopie [gemeint ist Der blaue Kammerherr (1949)], die mich seit anderthalb Jahren in Atem hält - und da ich tagsüber Dienst zu machen habe, werden Sie einen ungefähren Begriff von dem Drama haben, das die Musen mit mir exerzieren. [.] Es ist für Menschen wie mich, die in einer sehr einsamen Welt leben, ungeheuer wichtig, hin und wieder durch ein kleines Fenster zu sehen, das ihr monomanisches Wirken nicht ganz umsonst gewesen ist." Bewegendes Zeugnis der sensiblen Natur des frühverstorbenen Schriftstellers. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
