        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]

        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—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.

        Andreae Dactii Patricii et Academici Florentini Poemata

      In 8vo (cm 14,5); legatura del XVIII secolo in mezza pelle con fregi e titolo in oro al dorso, taglio rosso; pp. 320. Carattere corsivo latino e greco. Lievi fioriture, margine superiore un po' corto, minimi aloni marginali, insignificante strappetto all'ultima carta senza danno al testo, ma nel complesso ottima copia.RARA EDIZIONE ORIGINALE pubblicata postuma per le cure del figlio dell'autore Giovanni Dazzi e da questi dedicata a Cosimo de' Medici. A pagina 5 segue un'altra dedica di Andrea Dazzi a Pietro Soderini. La raccolta si apre con numerosi epigrammi ed elegie: in quei versi nei quali egli canta il suo amore per una certa Fulvia si comprende come il Dazzi «seppe contemperare lo studio dei classici con quello dei poeti volgari e soprattutto del Petrarca» (G. Bottiglioni, La lirica latina in Firenze nella seconda metà  del secolo XV, Pisa, 1913, p. 140 e inoltre pp. 136 - 144). Seguono otto selve in esametri, ciascuna dedicata ad un argomento diverso: lodi adulatorie, notizie autobiografiche, scene di vita contemporanea, ecc. Chiudono la raccolta il poemetto eroicomico in tre libri Aeluromyomachia, scritto in età  giovanile, qui pubblicato da M. Serafini e da questi dedicato a P. Cattani da Diacceto, e un'orazione latina in lode delle lettere greche. Dall'esame dei componimenti emergono le fitte relazioni che il Dazzi intratteneva con i personaggi più importanti del tempo, tra i quali ricordiamo J. Naldi, P. Crinito, G. Rucellai, L. Albizzi, L. Torelli e M. Tarcaniota. Proprio l'inimicizia tra quest'ultimo e A. Poliziano, che era stato maestro del Dazzi, causò la successiva rottura tra il Poliziano e il Dazzi stesso, il quale «in una serie di epigrammi assai mordaci, attaccò il Poliziano nel suo punto più vulnerabile, cioè nella sua immoralità » (Bottiglioni, op. cit., p. 144). Lo accusò infatti molto arditamente di omosessualità . «Parmi ces poésies il y en a de fort libres... La plupart sont dans le genre de Catulle et de Martial... Cela n'a point empêché ce recueil d'être réimprimé à  Paris, en 1554, avec un privilège du roi» (J. Gay, Bibliographie des ouvrages relatifs à  l'amour, aux femmes, au mariage..., Paris, 1894, I, p. 782). Numerosi sono i componimenti e le strofe in greco. In fine vi sono l'indice dei poemi e l'errata. Originario di Firenze, il Dazzi si formò nelle lettere latine sotto la guida del Poliziano e del Landino, mentre nelle lettere greche ebbe come maestro il Verino. Le sue qualità  di erudito gli fecero ottenere l'insegnamento di lettura greca presso lo Studio Fiorentino nel 1502. Insegnò ininterrottamente sia a Firenze che a Pisa fino circa al 1520, avendo come allievi P. Vettori, B. Cavalcanti, P. Mini ed altri. Proprio intorno a quegli anni una grave malattia lo rese completamente cieco e lo costrinse a ritirarsi presso la sua villa di Fiesole. Ciononostante egli continuò ad ottenere alcuni importanti incarichi pubblici e fu tra i primi ad entrare nell'Accademia fiorentina dopo la sua fondazione ufficiale nel 1541, divenendone in seguito censore. La sua memoria fu pubblicamente onorata da C. Bartoli e da M. Serafini, che lesse l'orazione funebre in S. Maria Novella (cfr. W. Rudiger, Andreas Dactius aus Florenz, Halle, 1897, passim). D.

      Presso le Reale Societa Geografica, Roma 1913 - (History of Cartography) PINZA, Giovanni. Due Cosmografie, una Egizia ed una Sinaitica, in Due Piatti di Bronzo Trovati a Nimrud [Translation: Two Cosmographies, an Egyptian and a Sinaiticus, in Two Plates of Bronze Found in Nimrud]. Roma [Rome]: Presso le Reale Societa Geografica, 1913. First Edition. Text in Italian. Octavo, 9.25 x 6 inches. Original wraps, 110 pages. Fold-out map of site intact. Some toning and foxing to pages. Wraps rubbed and scuffed. Spine worn with some tears and chips. Toning and wear to edges. Good condition. Book on archeology of Nimrud. In antiquity, the town was known by the name Kalhu [Calah in the Old Testament], but the Arabs called it Nimrud after Nimrod, the biblical mighty hunter. Ronald Vere Tooley, considered the effective founder of the modern antiquarian map trade, was born and raised in London. After serving in World War I where he was one of the few in his regiment to survive the Battle of Cambrai, he joined the London booksellers Francis Edwards Ltd where he produced catalogues of rare books and old maps throughout the 1920s. After an attempt at his own business in the 1930s, Tooley rejoined Francis Edwards following World War II. Tooley devoted much of his time to the history of cartography and was considered an authority on early maps and cartographers. He authored multiple books on the subject and founded the Map Collectors' Circle, which published a series of monographs on historical cartography from 1963-1975. The festschrift, My Head is a Map, compiled in 1973 for his 75th birthday by British Library Map Librarians Helen Wallis and Sarah Tyacke, celebrated his contributions to the world of antiquarian maps.
