        Archive of letters and documents between Austrian President Kurt Waldheim and noted collector Jerry Granat regarding Waldheim's activities during WWII

      Austrian politician (born 1918) who was Secretary General of the United Nations from 1972 to 1981 and President of Austria from 1986 to 1992. His activities during World War II stirred up a storm of controversy in the mid-1980s when gaps in his biography led many to believe that Waldheim was a former Nazi who participated in war crimes during World War II. Though a head of state, he remained a de facto outcast throughout much of the world during his presidency, and though he was essentially exonerated?"it was determined that he knew of certain crimes but was not an active participant?"the true nature of his involvement with the Nazis remains unresolved. Archive of documents related to the controversy surrounding Waldheim's wartime activities, circa 1975?"1986. Included: TLS signed "Kurt," one page, May 9, 1975, to collector Gerard Granat, explaining his activities in 1938. In part: "I did not participate at Dr. Schuschnigg's historical meeting with Hitler, but was politically active for the Socialist movement in the underground." TLS signed "Kurt Waldheim," one page, May 7, 1986, to Granat, apologizing for a delay in responding and mentioning that his son will give Granat the information he seeks. Matte-finish 4 x 5.75 photo, signed in ballpoint in the blank lower margin, "Kurt." Detailed ALS from Waldheim's son, Gerhard, three pages on two sheets, May 15, 1986, outlining evidence refuting the accusations against his father. In part: "The continued charges, clearly it is implicated [sic] that he carries at least co-responsibility as a desk lieutenant writing enemy reports ... . [It] is either a conscious effort to prove guilt by misconstruing facts or the sad result of someone who has never served in the military... ." Unsigned carbon copies of several letters from Granat to Waldheim and his son, expressing doubts about Waldheim's innocence and requesting information. Several unsigned copied pages of documents related to the case and Waldheim's activities. In fine condition overall, with scattered bends and light handling wear. From the Jerry Granat collection.

Illustrated with reproductions of 5 drawings by Matisse. 4to., bound in original printed wrappers, preserved in a recent half-morocco box.

        A Royal Prisoner

      New York: Brentano's, 1918 New York: Brentano's, 1918. First American Edition. 12mo, 277 pp. Maroon cloth, lettered in gilt. Part of the Fantômas Detective Novels series, French pulp fiction in which, in early 20th century France, a series of audacious crimes are committed by an unknown criminal called Fantomas, who seems to be able to change shape and place supernaturally, speaks in cliches, and is the object of more than a little erotic interest to women - in particular Lady Beltham, who is magnetically attracted to him, yet aghast at his crimes, throughout the series. Inspector Juve (who may be Fantomas' brother) searches for him obsessively. Souvestre & Allain's Fantomas series included no less than 32 collaborative, all originally written in French between 1911 and 1913, then a subsequent eleven volumes written by Allain alone after Souvestre's death in 1914. Dominated by this essence of an archetypal villain rather in opposition to the archteypal super-detective Sherlock Holmes, the mystique of the series was immensely popular among contemporary French surrealists. A Royal Prisoner [original French title: Un Roi Prisonnier de Fantômas] is one of the scarcest titles in the Brentano's first American editions. Slightly sunned spine leaning a bit, light shelf wear, small bump to middle of rear cover; very good. L21

      Cloth-backed boards. First issue of the First Published Edition of Dreiser's only play with all three points; there was also a pre-publication copy which obviously was printed in a very small number. Twenty-five copies of this issue were signed on the title page by the author. This copy is SIGNED on the verso of the half-title page above the ads. Boni and Liveright printed this book early in 1918, but it was not actually published until September 1919 because it was being considered for production on the New York stage. Laid in is a TYPED LETTER SIGNED from publisher Horace Liveright dated 26 September 1919, the month of publication, forwarding the book to the noted collector Lafayette Butler. Liveright states, "Instead of persuading Mr. Dreiser to finish the trilogy, I have succeeded in getting him to finish THE BULWARK," mentioning that the novel would be published the following September. In fact, unknown to Liveright at the time, Dreiser had stopped working on the novel to begin work on AN AMERICAN TRAGEDY, and he would not resume work on it for twenty-five years. THE BULWARK was not published until 1946, after Dreiser's death. This is an absolutely stunning copy of this first collaboration between Dreiser and Liveright in a bright, fresh dustwrapper that was in Butler's private collection for 80 years, from the time it was published until we purchased it in the summer of 1999. A small sticker with a crossed-out price is on the spine presumably placed there by the publisher. Quite likely the Finest copy in existence, bright and clean in a similar dustwrapper [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Photo Album - Lenin - Russian Civil War

      Russia, 1918. Moscow, St. Petersburg [Petrograd], 1890-1923. Album of professional press photographs of Vladimir Lenin (Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov) active in his political campaigns for a unified global Communist government. Contains 68 black and white photographs many of which are large, 6 sketch illustrations printed in photographic format, and 1 newspaper clipping, each captioned in Russian typescript, mounted with grey corners onto grey cardstock leaves separated with tissue guard. Oblong folio album made in Russia, measuring approximately 41 x 30 x 4 cm, navy cloth boards, solid two-post binding. Photographs vary in size, the smallest measuring approximately 13,5 x 9,5 cm, and the largest 29 x 22 cm. Occasional creasing to corners or extremities, otherwise in Very Good Condition, a commendable photographic archive. With Communist reform at the international level as his mandate, the album mainly features Lenin's revolutionary efforts in Moscow and St. Petersburg during the Russian Civil War, illustrating his leadership of the Communist International congresses, and vanguardism indoctrination of the proletariat class. Most images are taken after the October Revolution of 1917, dating from 1918 to 1920, and several feature other important Communist revolutionaries collaborating with Lenin. Highlights of the album are as follows: In St. Petersburg 17 April 1917, only one month after the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II, 15 March 1917, Lenin is speaking at the Petrograd City Conference of the R.S.D.L.P. (Bolsheviks). [Just before midnight on 16 April [O.S. 3 April] 1917, after transiting Germany in a sealed train, Lenin and his party arrived at the Finland Station in Petrograd.] Also in 1917, Lenin is seen clean shaven and donning a wig, having fled to Finland to avoid imprisonment by Kerensky?'s provisional government which had outlawed the Bolshevik Party. He secretly returned from Finland on 9 August 1917, disguised in this manner as a railway worker, and protected by Eino Rahja and Alexander Shotman. Several photographs of Lenin in Moscow in 1918, working in the Kremlin, speaking at political functions, and interacting with people on city streets. In January 1918 he is in Petrograd. Lenin and Yakov Sverdlov in Moscow, the year before Sverdlov's death, in November 1918 attending a commemorative event for the first anniversary of the Revolution; observing the temporary monument to Marx and Engels on November 7th; then in December 1918, speaking at a formal assembly. [Yakov Mikhailovich Sverdlov was a Bolshevik party leader, Chairman of the Secretariat of the Russian Communist Party (Bolsheviks), and was involved in the killing of Tsar Nicholas II and his family.] A photograph of the First and Founding Congress of the Comintern, held in Moscow March 2 to 6, 1919, with 52 delegates from 34 parties present, showing Lenin with German Communist politician Hugo Eberlein and Swiss Communist Fritz Platten who is best known for having organized Lenin?'s return trip to Russia from his exile in Switzerland after the February Revolution. During the Workers' Demonstration in Moscow on labour day May 1st, 1919, Lenin is seen in Red Square conversing with V.M. Zagorski, secretary of the Moscovite committee of the Communist Party, and also with Anatoly Vasilyevich Lunacharsky, a Russian Marxist revolutionary and the first Soviet People's Commissar of Education responsible for culture and education. Lenin, Demyan Bedny, and Ukrainian delegate F. Panfilov, photographed together at the Eighth Congress of the Russian Communist Party, Bolsheviks, held in Moscow, March 18 to 23, 1919. [Demyan Bedny (1883-1945) once ranked among the Soviet Union's most famous authors. In 1912 he joined the Bolsheviks and began corresponding with V.I. Lenin, who eventually became a friend and supporter. After Lenin seized control of Russia in 1917, Bedny devoted his writing services to the Communists, granting him a position of considerable influence in the Kremlin, where he was officially regarded as the great proletarian poet.] Lenin with Marija Iljinichna Uljanova (1878-1937), Lenin's youngest sister, a writer, a leading figure in the Communist Party, and revolutionary activist, seen together in a crowd in 1919. A close-up view of Lenin saluting someone while at the Soviet leaders Red Square in Moscow celebrating the second anniversary of the October Revolution, November 7, 1919. Lenin and Mikhail Ivanovich Kalinin at the first All-Russia Congress of Working Cossacks in the Trade Unions' House, Moscow, March 1st 1920. [Known by Soviet citizens as "Kalinych", he was a Bolshevik revolutionary and the nominal head of state of Russia and later of the Soviet Union, from 1919 to 1946. In 1920 Kalinin attended the Second World Congress of the Communist International in Moscow as part of the Russian delegation and took an active part in the debates.] Lenin in conversation with the prolific English author H. G. Wells, in the study of the Kremlin, October 1920. On April 7, 1920 Lenin delivering a speech at the Third All-Russia Trade Union Congress, where he talked about special tasks and special responsibilities in building socialism, to transition from war tasks, to tasks of peaceful economic development, etc. Five photographs relate to the 2nd World Congress of the Comintern, including Lenin speaking at the Moscow Congress 19 July 1920. The gathering, held in both Petrograd and Moscow from July 19 to August 7, 1920, consisted of approximately 220 voting and non-voting representatives of Communist and revolutionary socialist political parties from around the world. Regarded by many scholars as "the first authentic international meeting of the new organization's members and supporters," the gathering is also significant for the level of participation of Soviet leader V.I. Lenin, who participated in the affairs of the gathering more intensely than at any other, preparing a host of key documents and actively helping to chart the gathering's course. The famous photograph taken by Grigori Petrowitsch Goldstein (1870-1941), of Lenin addressing a large crowd of soldiers in front of the Bolshoi Theater on May 5, 1920. This is the edited version, an example of censorship of historical falsification common during the Stalinist regime, which has removed Lev Kamenev and Trotsky who were in fact in the foreground standing to the right side of the stage. In March 1921 he is speaking at the Kremlin, and attending an assembly of the Communist International. Lenin is also seen giving a lecture at the Communist International's Third Congress, held in Moscow June-July 1921, during which a notion was presented that the class struggle could be transformed into "civil war" and "openly revolutionary uprisings" when circumstances were favorable. A few images show Lenin with his wife, Nadezhda Konstantinovna "Nadya" Krupskaya, the earliest in 1918 being chauffeured with Lenin's sister and others, two in the autumn of 1922 when vacationing in the mountains, and the album's only photograph dated 1923, again with Lenin being chauffeured. [The couple met in St. Petersburg and began a relationship with the Marxist schoolteacher, who was also the daughter of a nobleman of the Russian Empire. They married in 1894.] Photographs relating to Lenin's earlier years show the house in Riga where in the spring of 1900 Lenin held a secret meeting to establish ties with Latvian Social Democrats, as well as Russian physician, philosopher, and revolutionary, Alexander Bogdanov, playing chess with Lenin on a holiday together at Maxim Gorky's villa in Capri, Italy, April 1908. Also included are a childhood portrait taken at Samara in 1890, photographs of Lenin in St. Petersburg dated from 1895 to 1897, and views from a house-museum to Lenin in Riga. Founded by Lenin, the Communist International, abbreviated as Comintern, was an international communist organization intent on overthrowing the international bourgeoisie to create an international Soviet republic... The Comintern had seven World Congresses between 1919 and 1935 and was officially dissolved by Joseph Stalin in 1943. Founded by the Bolsheviks, the sovereign state Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (1917-1922), had as its first Head of Government, none other than Vladimir Lenin. The Russian Bolsheviks, headed by Lenin, believed that unless socialist revolution swept Europe, they would be crushed by the military might of world capitalism. The Bolsheviks fought in the Russian Civil War, during which Lenin's government carried out the Red Terror and advocated revolutionary amoralism. Lenin supported world revolution and immediate peace with the Central Powers, agreeing to a punitive treaty that turned over a significant portion of the former Russian Empire to Germany. The civil war resulted in millions of deaths. Red Terror was a campaign of mass killings, torture, and systematic oppression conducted by the Bolsheviks after they seized power in Petrograd and Moscow in 1917. Soviet historiography describes the Red Terror as having been officially announced on September 1918 by Yakov Sverdlov and ending about October 1918. Time Magazine named Lenin one of the 100 most important people of the 20th century, and one of their top 25 political icons of all time; remarking that "for decades, Marxist-Leninist rebellions shook the world. . Very Good.

      Frauenfeld: Huber, 1918.. 183, [5] S., mit einer Deckelvignette nach einer lithographierten farbigen Zeichnung von Karl Walser., 8°. Wilpert/Gühring2, 12, - Badorrek-Hoguth (für Karl Walser) B87. Beigelegt ist der Vorderteil der sehr seltenen Bauchbinde mit einem Werbetext des Verlags: "Das anmutigste und geschlossenste der Walserschen Prosabücher!"; darunter ein 14zeiliger Text von Max Brod über Robert Walser. Bisher habe es "Zwei-Schichten Dichter", etwa Dickens, gegeben, und natürlich auch "einflächige". Noch nicht gegeben habe es bisher "Drei-Schichter", aber Walser - "da haben wir ihn". Obenauf, in der ersten Schicht sei Walser "naiv, fast ungeschickt, schlicht, geradeaus". In der zweiten Schicht spüre man die Ironie, das Raffinement, den Feinfühligen. Und unter der der tiefen zweiten Schicht sei noch eine tiefere dritte, "ein Grund, und der ist wirklich naiv, kräftig und schweizerisch-deutsch". Das Blatt ist hellgrün und misst 12x9 cm (bxh),es ist damit nur weniger Millimeter schmäler als der Buchdeckel. Walser war davon sehr angetan, in einem Brief an seinen Verleger schreibt er: "Der Auszug von Max Brod auf dem grünen Begleitzettel ist sehr gut gewählt" (Salathe, "Man muss nicht hinter alle Geheimnisse kommen wollen", Frauenfeld, 2013), S. 159, einer Dokumentation zum Briefwechsel von Karl und Robert Walser mit ihrem Verleger. Einband etwas berieben, der vordere Deckel wegen einiger kleiner Randläsuren sorgfältig doubliert, beim Rückendeckel kleinere Druckstellen am Rand unterlegt. Schnitt etwas angestaubt. Nicht beschnitten..
