        Main Street: The Story of Carol Kennicott

      New York: Harcourt Brace and Howe. 1920. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 1920, First Edition, first issue with perfect type at folio on page 54 and 'may' on page 387. Hardcover. Very Good in a later issue dust jacket and custom blue morocco slipcase. Early fraying to the cloth at the spine ends and corners; 2 pinhole sized dents to the rear board; clean contents; sound binding. The jacket is likely from 1921 as it has 'Harcourt Brace and Co.' on the spine; it has the same image as the first (silhouette in front of the 'Rosebud Movie' billboard) and all of the advertised titles were published on or before 1921, when Harcourt Brace and Howe switched over to Harcourt Brace and Co. There is a blurb for 'Main Street' on the rear panel that notes 'Over 125,000 sold'. The price is $2.00. The jacket is still quite fresh, at least Very Good+: the spine panel is sunned just a touch, there is also very shallow chipping at the crown of the spine and the upper corners; finally, a single 1/2-inch closed snag to the top edge of the rear panel. DJ with reviews for the book on the front flap; $2.00 price present. A truly sparkling jacket. Clamshell slipcase in full blue morocco with gilt titles; Fine condition. We do not know how this later jacket came to be matched up with a first issue of the book. Digital images available upon request.

        Zwei eigenhänd. Briefe mit Unterschrift (der zweite mit Zusatz "und die Leute vom Barkenhof"), 1 3/4 Seiten, kl-4, W[orpswede], 26. 11. und 30. 12. [19]20.

      - An Karl Jaenichen. ". Ihr Brief hat mich erfreut, es sind wenige, die das was ich sagte so tief erfasste wie Sie. Wir kämpfen hier einen schweren Kampf in wirtschaftlicher Not und Bedrängnis von allen Seiten, von Seiten der 'Parteien' besonders. Wir werden nun um Ostern aus einer Bonner Versuchsschule (Scharrelmann) Kinder aufnehmen für den Sommer und müssen dann sehen was sich daraus entwickelt. Wir wissen genau was wir wollen, aber haben noch unendliche Arbeit an uns selber zu tun um uns für die Aufgabe zu festigen. Den Vortrag sende ich Ihnen im Januar gedruckt ." (26. 11.) ". Das war für uns eine grosse Freude - die Noten, Ihre tiefen rhytmischen Worte, dann das schöne Gebäck. Wir haben jetzt endlich eine Lehrerin für die Kleinen gefunden und so beginnt langsam der Aufbau. Ich habe jetzt eine wunderbare Aufgabe, male und schnitze .". (30. 12.) Vogeler, der den Barkenhof in Worpswede gekauft hatte, gehörte zu den Gründern und führenden Persönlichkeiten der Künstlerkolonie. Er hatte die Niederlage im 1. Weltkrieg als moralischen Zusammenbruch empfunden, der eine neue Ethik und ethische Politik erforderte, und entwickelte auf d. Grundlage von Marxismus, Christentum und völkischen Ideen eigene Vorstellungen von Erziehung und Lebensform, die er in seiner Barkenhof-Kommune mit ihrer agrarisch-handwerklichen Bedarfswirtschaft zu verwirklichen suchte. 1920 veröffentlichte Vogeler "Drei Monatsbriefe der Kommune Barkenhof", im folgenden Jahr das dreibänd. Werk "Kosmisches Werden und menschliche Erfülllung". Heinrich Scharrelmann (1871-1940) war Schriftsteller und Schulreformer.

        Collection of Excerpts (Loci Communes) on Moral Topics; (Useful Selections Produced by Various Ecclesiastical Authors, As Well as by Ancient Pagan Philosophers); illuminated medieval manuscript in Greek on parchment in a medieval binding

      ILLUMINATED MEDIEVAL MANUSCRIPT IN GREEK ON PARCHMENT, Byzantine Empire, c. 1000-1100. 220 x 170 mm. 173 folios, some leaves wanting (collation, i3 ii-x8 xi6 [of 8; 2 leaves missing with text loss] xii-xvi8 xvii6 xviii6 [of 8; two leaves missing with text loss] xix-xxiii8), quires signed, written by one scribe in a calligraphic Perlschrift on 23 long lines (justification, 155 x 100 mm.), headings and initials in pale red, decorated headpieces in pale red at the start of each chapter, with pi-shaped illuminated headpiece at the beginning of Chapter 1 (f. 4) and narrow headbands in red ink at the beginning of each subsequent chapter. BINDING: Possibly fourteenth-century, judging from the type of blind-tooled ornaments, blind-tooled brown leather over wooden boards, of the ?"Greek?" type, with squared and grooved boards flush with the book block and no ridges on the spine, chain stitches on four sewing stations. TEXT: This manuscript is among the oldest witnesses of the most important and influential sacro-profane Greek florilegium, erroneously attributed to the seventh-century author St. Maximus the Confessor. The earliest witnesses to the text only date from the tenth century and was probably compiled at this time. The anthology contains quotes on moral and religious topics that circulated during the Middle Ages and was much mined as a source for fragments and testimonies by other Greek authors. Each of the 71 chapters presented here consists of excerpts related to a common topic like power and authority (ff. 38v-43v), death (ff. 112v-115v), goodness (ff. 147v-149), and even laughter (ff. 160v-162). These excerpts are arranged hierarchically, with Scripture coming first, then patristic writings, and, finally, classical Greek authors like Aristotle, Demosthenes, Diogenes, Euripides, Epicurus, and Socrates. Previously unknown to scholars and not appearing in any editions, this manuscript presents a version of the long recension of the text. PROVENANCE: This manuscript was made in the Byzantine Empire, possibly Constantinople, during the eleventh century, based on evidence of script and decoration. Part of a German private collection, Germany/Wiltshire (1920?-1988); sold London, Sotheby?'s, 6 December 1988, lot 26. Belonged to George A. Pervanas, of Athens (?); sale London, Sotheby?'s, 2 December 1997, lot 94. Belonged to Martin Schøyen, Norwegian businessman and book collector; his MS 2455.

        Autograph Letter Signed ("A. Einstein"), in German.

      [Berlin], June 30, 1920 - 4to. 1 page. Einstein on the value of relativity for philosophy. Einstein writes to Hans Reichenbach, the philosopher of science and an influential expositor of Relativity. In part (translation): "I am really very pleased that you want to dedicate your excellent brochure to me, but even more so that you give me such high marks as a lecturer and thinker. The value of the th.[eory] of rel.[ativity] for philosophy seems to me to be that it exposed the dubiousness of certain concepts that even in philosophy were recognized as small change. Concepts are simply empty when they stop being firmly linked to experiences. They resemble upstarts who are ashamed of their origins and want to disown them." The letter was published in the Collected Papers of Albert Einstein, vol 10, doc 66, pp 323-324 (CPAE Translation, vol 10, doc 66, p 201). Slightly uneven toning, a few spots in upper margin, two-hole punch at left margin, folding creases. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        MAKS, VOET, CLICHÉFABRIEK Ons Boek, fraai gebonden boekwerk met geschreven teksten betreffende het gezin Henk Maks en Stijntje Voet (gehuwd Haarlem 28 april 1898) en hun dochter Christine Sandeune Maks (geb. Haarlem 7 november 1900). Ca. 200 p. (1898-1960), geschept papier in perkamenten band met gouden letters. Fraai!.

      Henk Maks bezocht de school voor `nette jongens' aan de Wilhelminastraat te Haarlem en ontmoette op het Zandvoortse strand Stijntje Voet. Na hun huwelijk bewoonden zij een `mooi huis' aan het Haarlemse Kenaupark. Later woonden zij in Den Haag. Hun dochter Stijntje volgde de `armenschool' van Jan Ligthart en ging in 1920 in Leiden wis- en sterrenkunde studeren. Zij woonde Morschsingel 11 te Leiden. Op 27 juni 1935 promoveerde zij te Leiden en gaf een `analysten'-cursus', waaraan haar vader ook meewerkte. Vader Maks stichtte een clichéfabriek die geen winstbejag beoogde, maar het leveren van mooi werk en `vreugde in de arbeid' ten doel had. Medewerkers: een Deen, een Oostenrijker en een Duitser. Men had veel logé's, o.a. tante Em gedurende 30 jaar en de kleine Corrie Voet gedurende anderhalf jaar. Het boek bevat foto's van vader Maks, van dochter Stijntje en van Stijntje met twee vriendinnen bij haar 25-jarig promotiefeest. Voorts teksten betreffende het overlijden van Henks zwager Euck (1940) en zuster Trees (1946), van Henks vrouw Stijntje Voet (1951), van de heer Winkelman (1945) en van anderen uit hun kring. De meeste teksten betreffen echter gedichten, veelal van de hand van Henk Maks, soms ook van anderen. De verzen en gedachten van Henk Maks en de keuze van de andere gedichten getuigen van een brede eruditie en diep gevoelsleven: zinspelingen op het leven van dochter Stijntje wekken het vermoeden van een feministische of lesbische aanleg.

The topic of this book is archaeological and historical research on religious paintings from the first eight centuries after Christ's birth and found in Buddhist caves in the vicinity of Kucha. Albert Grünwedel [1856-1935] was a German indologist, tibetologist, archaeologist, and explorer of Central Asia. With thanks to the Brill Humanities lectures on Dunhuang for the following: The so-called Turfan expeditions made by the Germans in the first quarter of the 20th century were not in fact limited to Turfan but also encompassed Kucha, Kharashahr and Maral-Bashi. During the Han-Tang period Kucha was a large Silk Road kingdom but culturally part of the region where the Tocharian languages were in use. In this region, in addition to Buddhist monastery sites also seen in Khotan, a large number of Buddhist cave temples were preserved. The multitude of Buddhist wall paintings that survived in these caves are an important source for the study of Buddhist art on the Northern Route. The Tocharian B dialect used in Kucha survived in both Buddhist scriptures and secular documents, which remain a major source for the study of the Kucha kingdom around the 7th century, Limited Edition
