        Die Freigabe der Vernichtung lebensunwerten Lebens. Ihr Maß und ihre Form

      Leipzig Meiner, 1920 - EA des Werkes, in dem der Psychiater Hoche (1865-1943) und der Jurist Binding (1841-1920) erstmals explizit begründen, daß die Tötung von behinderten oder kranken Menschen - von ihnen als "Ballastexistenzen" bezeichnet - gerechtfertigt sei. Binding stellt den toten Soldaten des 1. Weltkriegs in demagogischer Weise die "lebenden Insassen.der Idioteninstitute" gegenüber, die den Anspruch auf gesellschaftlichen Schutz verloren hätten, und Hoche erklärt Kranke und Behinderte zu "leeren Menschenhüllen". Die Schrift hat den Boden weiter bereitet für die Tötungsaktionen der Nazis von psychisch Kranken und Behinderten. Aus den Schlussbemerkungen: "Es gab eine Zeit, die wir jetzt als barbarisch betrachten, in der die Beseitigung der lebensunfähig Geborenen oder Gewordenen selbstverständlich war; dann kam die jetzt noch laufende Phase, in welcher schliesslich die Erhaltung jeder noch so wertlosen Existenz als höchste sittliche Forderung galt; eine neue Zeit wird kommen, die von dem Standpunkte einer höheren Sittlichkeit aus aufhören wird, die Forderungen eines überspannten Humanitätsbegriffes und einer Überschätzung des Wertes der Existenz schlechthin mit schweren Opfern dauernd in die Tat umzusetzen". - sehr seltene EA in bemerkenswert gutem Erhaltungszustand!

        Original silver Gelatin photograph of Albert Einstein by E.O. Hoppé from the early 1920s.

      Circa early 1920s - A splendid, crisp black and white silver gelatin photograph of Albert Einstein, measuring 6.5 " x 8". Sharp focus and wonderful facial tones. In its original wooden frame secured with tiny, rusted nails along the back borders. Einstein has a quizzical, almost bemused look, and his hair is somewhat untamed as usual. With a cut signature "A. Einstein" from the end of a letter which shows some typed letters on the verso. Albert Einstein (1879– 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist. Einstein developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics). Einstein's work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. Einstein is best known by the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation"). He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the evolution of quantum theory. (Wikipedia) Emil Otto Hoppé (1878 –1972) was a German-born British portrait, travel, and topographic photographer active between 1907 and 1945. Born to a wealthy family in Munich, he moved to London in 1900 to train as a financier, but took up photography and rapidly achieved great success. He was the only son of a prominent banker, and was educated in the finest schools of Munich, Paris andVienna. Upon leaving school he served apprenticeships in German banks for ten years, before accepting a position with the Shanghai Banking Corporation. He never arrived in China. The first leg of his journey took him to England where he met an old school friend. Hoppé married his old school friend's sister, Marion Bliersbach, and stayed in London. While working for the Deutsche Bank, he became increasingly enamored with photography, and, in 1907, jettisoned his commercial career and opened a portrait studio. Within a few years, E.O. Hoppé was the undisputed leader of pictorial portraiture in Europe. To say that someone has a "household name" has become a cliché, yet in Hoppé's case the phrase is apt. Rarely in the history of the medium has a photographer been so famous in his own lifetime among the general public. He was as famous as his sitters. It is difficult to think of a prominent name in the fields of politics, art, literature, and the theatre who did not pose for his camera." Although Hoppé was one of the most important photographic artists of his era and highly celebrated in his time, in 1954, at the age of 76, he sold his body of photographic work to a commercial London picture archive, the Mansell Collection. In the collection, the work was filed by subject in with millions of other stock pictures and no longer accessible by author. Almost all of Hoppé's photographic work—that which gained him the reputation as Britain's most influential international photographer between 1907 and 1939—was accidentally obscured from photo-historians and from photo-history itself. It remained in the collection for over thirty years after Hoppé's death, and was not fully accessible to the public until the collection closed down and was acquired by new owners in the United States.In 1994 photographic art curator Graham Howe retrieved Hoppé's photographic work from the picture library and rejoined it with the Hoppé family archive of photographs and biographical documents. This was the first time since 1954 that the complete E.O. Hoppé Collection was gathered together. Many years were spent in cataloguing, conservation, and research of the recovered work. In his life, Hoppé's reputation attracted many important British and North American figures in politics, literature, and the arts. In the era before the first World War, Hoppé photographed many leading literary subjects and figures from the art world, such as Henry James, Rudyard Kipling, John Masefield, Léon Bakst, Anna Pavlova, Tamara Karsavina and other dancers of the [Attributes: First Edition]

        Egypte. Catalogue de Photos Stereoscopiques

      - An exceptionally beautiful and well-done illustrated manuscript of travel in Egypt. N.d., circa 1920. Oblong, 8 by 6 inches, 21 by 15 cm. Unpaginated, with 61 leaves of card, text and illustrations only on the recto sides, and with majority of pages having some kind of illustration. With original watercolor illustrations of sights and attractions of Egypt, and headings are rendered with a lovely calligraphic hand. Occasionally the author produces Arabic calligraphy and ornament, also exquisitely executed. Some illustrations are mounted, while most are done directly onto the leaves. All are crisply precise and lovely; they include panoramas, night scenes, temples and mosques, statuary, the people -- vendors, bedouins, etc. Perhaps the subjects are not unfamiliar -- these are the things recorded by photographers and travelers from the nineteenth century to the present -- but the quality is high, and they have a cumulative effect in this home-made book. The creator of this album lavished care on all aspects of its production, and this extends to the slipcase and front board, in which the title and a simple decorative symbol is rendered with gold-colored leather pastedowns. While the use of binder rings to hold the album together might seem crude, it is complemented with a rounded piece of rusticated chrome metal that makes the end product both striking and somehow fitting of the topical matter contained within. Full Calf, bound with binder rings, and with a slipcase

        Constitution and By-Laws of Philadelphia Base Ball Association

      Philadelphia: Philadelphia Base Ball Association, 1920. Near Fine. First edition. 16mo. 16pp. Stapled printed green card wrappers. Small stains on the wrappers and a bit of age-toning, else near fine. An interesting artifact. Among the officers listed is Edward Bolden, a Philadelphia postal employee who was later to play an important role in Negro baseball. In this early instance he was on the board of a league of amateur baseball clubs in the Philadelphia area, probably representing the Hilldale team which he helped to found in 1910, and which played other local teams (of both races). The by-laws note that there are separate white and "Colored" divisions in the league, and that the winners in each category would meet in a championship series. Little more can easily be found about this league. We did find one 1923 article in the "Afro-American" newspaper recounting a game in which Hilldale overwhelmed the white all-star team of the league by a score of 9-1.Bolden was later the founding president of the Eastern Colored League in 1923, and in 1924, along with Andrew 'Rube' Foster, he helped organize the Negro World Series, a post-season championship between teams from the Negro National League and the Eastern Colored League. From about 1915 to 1933, Bolden managed the Hilldale Ball Club. He later founded the Philadelphia Stars which won the 1934 Negro National League Championship. Rare. OCLC locates no copies.

Michael Robartes was a mysterious character, the leader of the fictional Order of the Alchemical Rose, first created by Yeats for his short story "Rosa Alchemica" in The Secret Rose (1898). In this collection Yeats posited Robartes as his real source for the mystical wisdom of an obscure Arab sect called the Judwalis, which Yeats then claimed to be channelling in his poetry. The work is an attractive and important volume, and an early example of Yeats's mysticism entering into his verse. This collection contains the poems (notable for their mythical imagining of contemporary politics) "Easter, 1916" and perhaps Yeats's most famous poem, "The Second Coming".

        Vom Bauen und Wohnen im neuen Palaestina (Building and Housing in New Palestine)

      Berlin: Welt-Verlag, 1920. First edition. Softcover. g to vg. Folio (12 1/2 x 9 3/4"). 56pp. Original printed wrappers. Lavishly illustrated throughout with 54 in-text photogravures, architectural drawings and floor plans, Alexander Levy's "Building and Housing in New Palestine" is the most comprehensive architectural study on inexpensive and rapid building construction in the early days of the Zionist movement. The author meticulously and methodologically reviews the most advanced European theories and studies relevant to the topic and concludes with concrete and realistic recommendations for implementation. The plan covers such topics as the role of the company in initiating and executing building construction, the crucial availability of materials, the presentation of different types of accommodations, and the utilization and standardization of materials and labor techniques.Laid in, 13 typed leaves bearing the heading of the "Bureau de Correspondance Juive Zurich" with the draft of an article titled "Normalisierung und Typisierung - welche Masse? (Grundsätzlicher Vorschlag an die Palästina-Baugesellschaft.)" by Norbert Weldler (1884-1961), the publisher of the "Zürcher Bücherblattes" and head of a Swiss Zionist association. Each leaf has been annotated and/or underlined by Weldler himself.Moderate creasing along spine. Tail of spine and fore-edge of front cover slightly and partly water-stained. Lower corner of pp. 31-56 water-stained (not affecting lettering). Text in German. Wrappers in overall good, interior in good to very good condition. About the author: Architect Alexander Levy (1883-1942) expressed interest in Zionism after finishing his studies in architecture and starting work for a building company in Berlin in 1907. A year later, he offered his services as an architect to Arthur Ruppin (1876-1943), then the director of the Palestine Office of the Zionist Organization in Jaffa. In the Spring of 1919, with the support of the Association of Jewish Architects and Engineers, Levy founded a new organization, the Association of the Builders of the Land of Israel. The goal of the association was to resolve the problems of building and housing in Palestine accompanying the anticipated mass immigration of Jews to the Land of Israel. In May of the same year, the association organized a conference on future building in Palestine, including an exhibition of plans and models of housing solutions. The ideas introduced in the exhibition were published with plans and photos by Alexander Levy in Davis Trietsch's magazine "Volk und Land." Levy's essay in this magazine, titled "Vom Bauen und Wohnen im neuen Palaestina" (Building and Housing in New Palestine) spread over four issues between September and November 1919. Most of the text and portion of the illustrations of the future Levy's book were already published in Trietsch's "Volk und Land." Due to financial problems, Alexander Levy moved back to Berlin in 1927. He left Germany in 1933 after Hitler's rise to power, but was arrested in occupied France in 1942, and deported to Auschwitz were he was murdered soon after his arrival.

        Erotische Studien. 9 farbig aquarellierte fotografische Abzüge von erotischen Originalzeichnungen.

      Um 1920. - Von 22 x 11,5 cm bis 28 x 23 cm. 8 unter Masken, 1 Kunstkarton montiert. Unter dem Titel Erotische Grotesken erschien um 1920 ein Mappenwerk mit 12 kolorierten Radierungen, signiert 'Pipifax'. 4 der Radierungen liegen hier vor als fotografierte Zeichnungen mit kleinen Varianten, 1 weitere Radierung weist eine grössere Variante zu der fotografischen Fassung auf. (In der Mappe betitelt mit 'Wiederbelebungsvariante' und 'Der Damenschneider'). Die anderen 4 Blätter sind eindeutig im Stil der Mappe gezeichnet, sind jedoch vollkommen eigenständige Motive. Sie scheinen Vorstudien gewesen zu sein, die dann nicht in das Mappenwerk aufgenommen wurden. Jedes Blatt in der Abbildung mit 'H. L.' signiert. Die Vermutung, dass Pipifax eigentlich ein Pseudonym von Max Liebermann ist, dürte damit widerlegt sein. Einige der Abzüge mit kleinen Randläsuren und schwachen Feuchtigkeitsspuren des Aquarells. Eine Maske beschädigt. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Der Neue Excentric Club Spannende Sport-Erzählungen No 1 (1920) through No 534 (1927) (all published)

      A complete run of 534 issues in 25 volumes of the second series of the German-language dime novels about the character Percy Stuart, an English Lord who wants to become a member of the Excentric Club in London and must complete 197 tasks (one for each member of the club) to gain admittance, each issue with a colorful illustration to the cover. 16mo. Cloth-backed boards with hand-illustrated labels mounted to covers and hand-written titles to spines, orig. pictorial wrpps. bound in. Some slight rubbing. Dresden (Mignon) 1920-1927. The first series appeared from 1913 to 1916 under the title "Lord Percy vom Excentric Club", and changed Percy to an American millionaire after the UK became an opponent to Germany during World War I. In 1916, when the United States became more allied with the UK, the German military authority banned publication of the series. The Augsburger Tag publishing house tried to revitalize the series in 1950, but it ceased publication after only one volume was printed. From 1969 to 1979, a series loosely based on the novels, called "Percy Stuart", ran on German TV for 52 episodes. As of December 2017, WorldCat does not locate any holdings of this series in North America.
