      . Aquarellierte Lithographie, auf feinem Japan, auf Untersatz montiert, dort signiert, betitelt und als "Orig. Litho. Handkoloriert" bezeichnet. 29,3:20,7 cm. Etwas verbräunt und im unteren Bereich minimal knitterig. - Sehr selten! Die Signatur "N. Wächtler" bezieht sich auf das frühe Pseudonym der Künstlerin.. Trotz großer Widerstände seitens ihres Elternhauses, das sie schon im Alter von 16 Jahren verließ, absolvierte die Künstlerin 1915-1918 ein Studium an der Dresdener Kunstgewerbeschule, parallel ab 1916-1919 Mal- und Zeichenkurse an der Dresdner Kunstakademie. Ihr Interesse galt schon zu Beginn den avantgardistischen Kunstströmungen, Dadaismus und Expressionismus. Nach der schwierigen Ehe mit dem Maler und Opernsänger Kurt Lohse, der ein liederlich ausschweifendes Leben führte, so daß sie in permanenter Armut lebte, und mehrfacher Trennungen wurde sie zeitweise obdachlos. Ein dadurch bewirkter seelischer und körperlicher Zusammenbruch führte 1929 zu einem mehrwöchigen Aufenthalt in einer Nervenheilanstalt. Hier entstanden die berühmten "Friedrichsberger Köpfe", Porträts ihrer Mitpatientinnen, die ihr große Anerkennung in der Kunstwelt, aber kaum Verkäufe einbrachten. Anschließend schaffte sie die endgültige Trennung von ihrem Ehemann. Es entstanden nachfolgend Bilder des Hamburger Hafens, des Arbeiter- und Prostituiertenmilieus sowie Selbstbildnisse. Finanzieller Erfolg stellte sich allerdings noch immer nicht ein, so daß sie weiterhin in wirtschaftlicher Not lebte. Nach der Rückkehr in ihr Elternhaus nach Dresden und zunehmender seelischer und körperlicher Zerrüttung ließ ihr Vater sie 1932 aus Unverständnis und Hilflosigkeit in die Landes-Heil- und Pfleganstalt Arnsdorf bei Dresden einweisen. "Schizophrenie" wurde kurzerhand diagnostisiert. 1935 wurde sie in der Frauenklinik Dresden im Rahmen der nationalsozialistischen Eugenik, des "Erbgesundheitsgesetzes", zwangssterilisiert. Völlig gebrochen erlischt nahezu vollständig ihre Schaffenskraft. 1940 wurde sie im Zuge des nationalsozialistischen Programms "lebensunwertes Leben" in die Landes-Heil- und Pflegeanstalt Pirna-Sonnenstein deportiert und ermordet.

        [Manuscript]: "The Twilight of the Manikins: Verses Written during the Great War"

      New York. Feb. 1915- Feb. 1919 [with later corrections and manuscript emendations]. Octavo. Red cloth. Over 200 pages of manuscript war poetry written in a publisher's "dummy" volume (that is, a bound volume issued with only blank pages, the book title "The Long Gallery" by Eva Lathbury and publisher Henry Holt stamped on the cloth). Trent hand-numbered the 208 pages of poetry, the verses almost entirely in holograph (a few printed pieces pasted in and amended). The volume shows a great deal of work with portions cut and pasted in later holograph (and occasionally dated) corrections and edits, etc.Trent was born in Richmond, Virginia in 1862, the son of a surgeon in the Confederate Army of distinguished Virginia ancestry. In 1880 he began studying at the University of Virginia where he became the editor of the Virginia University Magazine. He did post-graduate study at Johns Hopkins University, after which he accepted an offer to teach at Sewanee, The University of the South where he became a professor of English and the acting professor of history from 1888 until 1900, and from 1893 was dean of the academic department. He founded and edited The Sewanee Review (now the longest continuously published literary quarterly in the U.S.). He also created the Sewanee Historical Society at the University of the South. In 1900, he became professor of English literature at Columbia University where he devoted himself to the study of Daniel Defoe. He edited the Cambridge History of American Literature, and published many books on literary historical subjects, many Southern, including William Gilmore Simms and Robert E. Lee.Trent published five of the earliest poems represented here from 1915 in The Fatherland and The Texas Review, but this voluminous collection of intelligent literary poetry devoted to the cataclysmic conflict appears to be largely unpublished. .

      [Mabileau & Co.], Paris 1915 - This LZ2 was built sometime between 1910 and 1914. Five airships of this design operated by Delag, safely carried 35,000 passengers between German cities. This was the first passenger air service in the world. The Gamy-Montaut prints document various historical events in the early history of motorized transportation, including Power Boat Racing, Motorcycle and Motor Car Racing, Motor Car Touring, Zeppelins and Airplanes. Having observed the rapidly growing interest in cars and racing during the early years of motor cars, Ernest Montaut produced his first motoring prints in the mid-1890s, and by 1897, his drawings were pictorial records of the many races in France. Montaut's work was extremely well received in the Paris of his day and was shown in the fashionable shops of the Rue de l'Opera and Rue de la Paix, as well as in the better galleries. Marguerite Montaut, Ernest's wife, joined him in his work producing not only racing prints but also developing a fine series of aviation prints commemorating such events as the first flights on the early European mail routes. While Marguerite Montaut's works were occasionally signed "M. Montaut", she also used the name "Gamy", an anagram for Magy. The Gamy-Montaut prints were all produced by the pochoir process in which the outlines for each image were drawn onto lithographic stones and printed. Using these uncoloured prints as a template, elaborate stencils were cut for each colour. Water-colour was then brushed onto the image through the stencil. The colouring process was quite complex, with each print taking several days to produce. It was also quite labour intensive, and the studio of Gamy-Montaut therefore employed a group of trained artists, including Nevil and Campion, to assist in the colouring. Hand-coloured pochoir print. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling in the margins and the image. Small loss upper right edge. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Offprint from Asociación Española para el Progreso de las Ciencias, Congreso de Valladolid, Vol. 2 (1915). 549-556pp. Text diagrams. Madrid: Imprenta de Fortanet, [1915]. 245 x 159 mm. Modern boards, original printed wrappers bound in. Light toning, library stamps on rectos and versos of wrappers. Very good. </p><p>First Separate Edition. Torres y Quevedo, a Spanish engineer, invented the first genuine chess-playing automaton, which he completed in 1911 and debuted in 1914 at the Paris World&#146;s Fair. The machine, which Torres y Quevedo called &#147;El Ajedrecista&#148; (the chess-player), pitted the white king and rook against the black king; it was fully automatic with electrical sensing of the pieces on the board and a mechanical arm to move its own pieces. The present paper, published in the proceedings of the Asociación Española para el Progreso de las Ciencias&#146; Congreso de Valladolid (1915), contains several diagrams illustrating the machine&#146;s electromechanical setup. </p><p>A pioneer of automation, Torres y Quevedo invented several analog algebraic equation solvers, a radio-control system and a prototype electromechanical calculating machine. His inventions &#147;looked beyond assembly lines to the industrial use of programmed machines. To prove that machines could do jobs that seemed to require mental ability, [Torres y Quevedo] combined electromechanical calculating techniques with his principles of automata, and showed how a machine could be assembled to perform any desired sequence of arithmetic operations&#148; (Eames and Eames , A Computer Perspective: Background to the Computer Age, p. 66).</p>

        TYPED LETTER SIGNED (TLS) to the Vice President of the United States asking for a pardon for one of his employees

      11 Feb. 1915, Detroit - A fine two-page TYPED LETTER SIGNED to the Honorable John R. Marshall, Vice President of the United States, on Ford's personal letterhead regarding an employee whose vindictive wife and mother-in-law keep having him arrested for parole violations. Ford begins by pointing out to Marshall, whose first name was actually Thomas, that he met the young man when he was governor of Indiana. He comments on his quality of character: "He has risen rapidly in our organization and we think a great deal of him. I ask you, who have known the boy, to kindly look into the case, believing with all my heart that he represents the kind of manhood that is a credit to our state and our nation, and I believe him fully entitled to a complete and absolute pardon. I am not taking this matter up with you in any perfunctory way, - I know this young man personally, and his case represents an opportunity for doing constructive good to manhood which, I believe you will agree with me, is one of the best and most genuinely satisfactory things we can accomplish in life." Ford adds this typed P.S. after his SIGNATURE: "I am sorry to trouble you about such a matter, when affairs of state demand so much of your time, but having met you and appreciating your sense of and desire for justice for brother men, I feel privileged to call this to your attention." Marshall, incidentally, coined the saying: "What this country needs is a good five-cent cigar." Dark pencil notation in upper left margin. Wrinkling to each page but still a fine presentation. Normal creases from folding. Very Good with fine content [Attributes: Signed Copy]
