        Psychology of the hand. Simplified

      , 1919 Box measures 31 x 22 cm. Includes ?"Key to the Game,?" an explanatory manual entitled ?"Scientific Hand Reading, the Science of Cheirognomy or Hand Building Power,?" 5 chromolithograph sheets depicting the major personality types, and 10 cardboard chromolithograph sheets with die-cut hand shapes (meant to be torn out). Original cardboard box in very good condition with very little wear; all pieces intact and in excellent condition with minor foxing on some of the sheets. Straddling the line between phrenology and palmistry, scientific hand reading or ?"cheirognomy?" purports to reveal something about an individual?'s personality and psychology based upon the unique physical features of their hands. Each part, each finger, as well as the spaces between fingers, the palm, the lines, they tell a story. The instructions and explanatory pamphlets explain the five basic ?"pure?" types of hands: Jupiter, Saturn, Apollo, Mercury, and Mars. Each of these types is personified in male form on five color plates with an explanation of the corresponding personality traits. This game allows players to ?"build?" a hand on the hand chart provided; the one who builds the most ?"perfect?" hand wins.

        Colas Breugnon Burgundian [Signed]

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1919. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first American Edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original blue cloth with the spine and front board decorated in gilt (minor rubbing, small bit of discoloration the the lower corner of each board where it meets the spine, offsetting to front endpapers and lighter offsetting to the title page from prior presence of that newspaper clipping -- no dust jacket), SIGNED BY ROMAIN ROLLAND on the title page; a novel set in the Burgundy region of France and told in the first person by Colas who relates the joys and sorrows of his fifty years. Of the book Austrian novelist and playwright Stefan Zweig wrote: "Colas Breugnon" is a charming romance of life in Burgundy three hundred years ago....[and] may perhaps be regarded as Rolland's most successful work. This is because it is woven in one piece, because it flows with a continuous rhythm, because its progress is never arrested by the discussion of thorny problems. It is written throughout in the same key....This work is unlike any of Rolland's other writings. It is not an historic study, a critical appreciation, a philosophic essay, nor yet even, in the strictest sense of the word, a novel. It is rather a volume of reminiscences as told by a man of fifty; and the very aimlessness with which this man talks is in itself a pleasure; for Breugnon is himself the one subject of the book, holding our attention by the display of a wayward, sympathetic, and aggressive personality." [The Novel provided the basis for an opera by the Russian composer Dmitry Borisovich Kabalevsky.] Romain Rolland won the 1915 Nobel Prize in Literature "as a tribute to the lofty idealism of his literary production and to the sympathy and love of truth with which he has described different types of human beings". (In 1915, the Committee determined that none of the nominees merited the Prize and, as then allowed by its governing statutes, postponed the award of the Prize to 1916 at which time it awarded the 1915 Prize to Rolland -- the 1916 Prize went to Carl Gustaf Verner von Heidenstam.) Signed copies of the book in any language are quite scarce and signed copies of it in English translation are absolute hen's teeth. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY ROMAIN ROLLAND. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.

      Robinhood, Maine, circa late 1940s. Oil on canvas board. 12 x 16 inches. Signed. Provenance: Estate of the artist.

        Pastor Ephraim Magnus. Drama.

      Berlin, Fischer, 1919.. 8°. 267 + 1 S. Priv. Hld. der Zeit.. EA. WG II 1. Mit eighd. Widm. Jahnns an Fred A. Angermayer (1889 - 1951). Regiebuch mit zahlreichen Streichungen und einigen Anmerkungen von der Hand Bertolt Brechts und Arnolt Bronnens. Dies über den Rückentitel und hds. Vergleiche erschließbar. - Leichte Gbrsp. - Auf dem Programm der Erstaufführung des Stückes 1923 in Berlin wird Bronnen als alleiniger Regisseur genannt. Allein aus dem Beitrag zu einer Festschrift anläßlich des 60. Geburtstages Jahnns, schreibt Brecht darüber, auch - neben Jahnn - bei den Proben dabeigewesen zu sein und diese geleitet zu haben. Hier nun ein Beleg für diese Behauptung. - Jahnn (1894 - 1954): die Begegnung mit Gottlieb Harms (1893-1931) noch auf der Schule war das prägende Jugenderlebnis. Aus Protest verließen beide Deutschland und verbrachten die Jahre 1915-18 in Norwegen. Hier fanden sie zu jener Weltanschauung, die nach der Rückkehr nach Deutschland 1919 zur Gründung der "Glaubensgemeinde Ugrino" führte. Resakralisierung des Daseins und ein Wiederaufrichten der Schöpfungstotalität war das Ziel Jahnns und seiner Freunde. Bedeutend war sein Beitrag zur Orgelreformbewegung der zwanziger Jahre. Als Orgelbauer renovierte und entwarf er mehr als hundert Instrumente, von denen sich heute lediglich die Lichtwark-Orgel (Heinrich-Hertz-Schule, Hamburg) in einem spielfähigen Zustand befindet. Schon seit seinem 14. Lebensjahr hat er Romane und Dramen geschrieben. In diesen jugendlichen Inszenierungen zum Dichter ist der Weg zum späteren Werk eingeschlagen: der Versuch, menschlichem Handeln und Erleiden bis in die verschwiegensten Finsternisse der Seele zu folgen, der Jahnn zum Außenseiter und Einzelgänger machen sollte. Seine ersten gültigen Werke - die Dramen Pastor Ephraim Magnus (1919), Die Krönung Richards III. (1921) und Medea (1926) - suchen die Wahrheit im Exzeß, in der Überschreitung der bürgerlichen Ordnung und stürzen Figuren wie Zuschauer in "vulkanische Lebensgefahr" (Oskar Loerke) ... 1920 bekam Hans Henny Jahnn den Kleist-Preis für sein Drama Pastor Ephraim Magnus. Das machte ihn einerseits schlagartig als Dichter bekannt, andererseits erntete er viel Kritik aus konservativen und kirchlichen Kreisen für dieses Werk wegen seines als anstößig empfundenen Inhaltes in Bezug auf die Brutalität der Szenen, Darstellung sexueller Gewalt und die Nutzung und bewusste Überzeichnung und Übertragung des Kreuzigungstodes auf seine Hauptfigur, was ihm späterhin sein Leben als Orgelbauer schwer machte. (Zitat nach DBE) - Unikat.

        Adjatok élelmet! Ha nincs er?nk dolgozni, nem kaphattok szerszámot, ruhát! [Give Us Food! If We Do Not Have Enough Strength To Work, We Cannot Give You Tools And Clothes!]

      Seidner Plakátgyár (1919), Budapest - Lithographic poster. 126 × 96 cm. Four figures of poor and hopeless proletarians in the foreground, a man sitting with his head in his right hand, and a sledgehammer laid to his leg, a little boy with a toy wagon, and two women desperately arguing with the two figures of the background, a wealthy peasant or "kulak" with his wife sit on a wagon filled up with a pig and poultry. The orange coloured text is overlaid and overlaying the image which gives the perspective of the composition. In this work Zádor combined the ominous and threatening atmosphere that was characteristic for the proletarian-art with the manner of the advertisement posters of its time to create this striking image. István Zádor (1882-1963) was a Hungarian graphic artist and painter. He studied in Paris at École des Beaux-Art. He served as war correspondent who documented the actions in drawings during WWI and he continued with such reports of the time of the revolutions in Hungary in 1918-1919. He designed propaganda poster for the short lived Hungarian Soviet Republic in 1919, this is an example of such works. Chipped edges. Mounted on japanese-paper.

        Have Faith in Massachusetts: A Collection of Speeches and Messages

      Boston & New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1919. First edition of the second enlarged edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Lyman Spitzer With Regards Calvin Coolidge." Near fine in a very good dust jacket. The recipient, Lyman Spitzer was an American theoretical physicist and astronomer. As a scientist, he carried out research into star formation, plasma physics, and in 1946, conceived the idea of telescopes operating in outer space. Spitzer invented the stellarator plasma device and is the namesake of NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope. Attached to the inner gutter is a letter on White House stationary to the recipient stating that President Coolidge would be "glad" to autograph this book. Before serving as Vice President, and then succeeded to the Presidency, Calvin Coolidge was the 46th Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts (1916-19), and then the 48th Governor (1919-21). In those years, he spoke and wrote frequently. A favorite topic, were "the fundamental principles of sound community life which cannot be stated too emphatically or too often. Few public men of to-day have shown a finer combination of right feeling and clear thinking about these principles, with a gift for the pithy expression of them, than has Governor Calvin Coolidge.

He was a founder member of the Historical Association in 1906. In 1912, he published The Groundwork of British History with his co-author, George Townsend Warner, which became "one of the most used school textbooks of the first half of the twentieth century".With E. H. Carter,[a] he wrote a school textbook for younger children, in several volumes, titled simply "Histories". Other collaborative works included The Teaching of History in 1938. In 1925, Marten narrowly missed becoming Master of Magdalene College, in Cambridge, when he was recommended to Lord Braybrooke as a possible candidate, but the College Fellows opposed the appointment, preferring another candidate, A. S. Ramsey. Braybrooke chose to appoint neither, and instead A. B. Ramsay, who was Lower Master at Eton, got the job. Marten was appointed to Ramsay's vacated post at Eton. Further promotions followed, to Vice-Provost in 1929, and Provost in 1945. In 1938, Marten began instructing Princess Elizabeth (later Queen Elizabeth II) in constitutional history. He was appointed Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order in the 1945 New Year Honours, and received the accolade from King George VI on 4 March 1945, on the steps of Eton College Chapel. He died unmarried in the Provost's Lodge at Eton, where the Marten Library is named after him. The library contains his collection of books, which he bequeathed to Eton on his death.

It is a large boys' school, with over 1,300 pupils, and was founded in 1440 by King Henry VI as "The King's College of Our Lady of Eton besides Wyndsor". The School is located in the village of Eton, near Windsor in England, and is one of nine English independent schools, commonly referred to as "public schools", included in the original Public Schools Act 1868. Following the public school tradition, Eton is a full boarding school, which means all pupils live at the school, and is one of four remaining single-sex boys' public schools (the others being Winchester College, Harrow School and Radley College) to continue this practice. Eton has a long list of distinguished former pupils. David Cameron is the nineteenth British Prime Minister to have attended Eton, and has recommended that Eton set up a school in the state sector to help drive up standards. The College has also educated generations of British aristocracy and members of the Royal family, the most recent being Prince William and his brother Prince Harry. Eton has traditionally been referred to as "the chief nurse of England's statesmen", and has been described as the most famous public school in the world. Early in the 20th century, a historian of Eton wrote, "No other school can claim to have sent forth such a cohort of distinguished figures to make their mark on the world." The Good Schools Guide called the school "the number one boys' public school," adding, "The teaching and facilities are second to none." The school is a member of the G20 Schools Group. (Wikipedia)

        Die [anderen unbekannten] Venezianischen Epigrammen.

      1919 - 8vo., (210 Ã&#151; 138 mm), pp. 57, [1]; printed in red and blue; uncut in the original publisherâ&#128;&#153;s boards. Limited edition (500 copies printed, this being no. 3), designed by Leopold Fuchs, after which the types were destroyed. This copy contains 53 original colour illustrations, (finished to varying degrees), some of them erotic, one below each epigram, by the Expressionist artist Erich Büttner, who has also removed the title-page (noting on the stub: â&#128;&#152;Was einst der Herr von Goethe bewitzelt hat nun ein Maler ausgekritzeltâ&#128;&#153;, quasi â&#128;&#152;What once Goethe poked fun at a painter has now scribbled outâ&#128;&#153;), decorated the endpapers and painted over the covers. A pencil note, by Büttner, below the colophon reveals that this copy was made as a Christmas present for the bibliophile Emil Tuchmann in 1927. Büttner (1889â&#128;"1936) was a member of the Berlin Secession, producing portraits of fellow artists George Grosz, Lovis Corinth, Arno Holz, and Heinrich Zille. He also designed book plates, notably Albert Einsteinâ&#128;&#153;s in 1917.
