Zusammenstellung und Bearbeitung der Texte: Jürgen Glaesemer u. Elka Spoerry. "Die vorliegende Platte enthält Auszüge gekürzter erzählerischer Episoden aus den ersten Heften, 'Von der Wiege bis zum Graab' (1908-1912) und den 'Geographischen Heften' (1912-1916), sowie aus einzelnen Gedichten aus den frühen Heften (1908-1912) und dem 'Trauermarsch' (1923/1930). Die erzählerischen Texte werden von Dr. Fred Singeisen, Psychiater, gelesen. [..] Die Lautgedichte , Aufzählungen, die 'Allgebrah' und der 'Trauermarsch' werden von Anton Bruhin vorgetragen. [..] Die Auswahl der Musikstücke zwischen den Texten der Platte sind Übertragungen von Wölflis eigenen musikalischen Aufzeichnungen. Sie wurden von Kjell Keller und Peter Streiff nach seiner musikalischen Noten- und Silbenschrift (Solmisation) rekonstruiert und arrangiert [..]. Die Instrumentierung der Stücke mit Klarinette, Handorgel und Geige entsprechen dem volkstümlichen Charakter der Musik. Wölfli selbst hat seine Musik auf selbstgebastelten Papiertrompeten geblasen." (Album-Text). -- Adolf Wölfli (Höchstetten 1864-1930 Klinik Waldau, Gde. Bern), ref., von Schangnau. Ledig. Wölfli kam 1872 mit seiner Mutter per Armentransport nach Schangnau und wuchs nach deren Tod 1873 als Verdingkind bei verschiedenen Pflegefamilien auf. Nach der Primarschule arbeitete er 1880-1890 als Knecht und Handlanger. Nach zwei gescheiterten Notzuchtversuchen an Minderjährigen wurde Wöfli 1890 zu zwei Jahren Haft verurteilt, die er im Zuchthaus St. Johannsen absass. Nach einem dritten Notzuchtversuch kam er 1895 in die psychiatrische Heilanstalt Waldau. Beim Eintritt verfasste Wölfli auf Geheiss der Ärzte seine erste Lebensbeschreibung. 1899 begann er zu zeichnen, schreiben und komponieren. Von 1904 datieren erste erhaltene Werke. 1908-1912 entstand 'Von der Wiege bis zum Graab' (Druck 1985), 1912-1916 'Geographische und Allgebräische Hefte' (Druck 1991), 1917-1922 'Hefte mit Liedern und Tänzen', 1924-1928 'Allbumm-Hefte mit Tänzen und Märschen' und 1928-1930 'Trauer-Marsch'. In diesen Schriften erschuf sich Wölfli eine neue Kindheit und die kommende, glorreiche Welt der 'Skt. [Sankt] Adolf-Riesen-Schöpfung'. Parallel zu diesem 25'000-seitigen, von Zeichnungen, Collagen und musikalischen Kompositionen begleiteten Schriftwerk entstanden Zeichnungen, die Wölfli an Sammler zu verkaufen begann ['Brotkunst']. Nach der Publikation von Walter Morgenthalers Studie 'Ein Geisteskranker als Künstler' (1921), die u.a. von Rainer Maria Rilke und Lou Andreas-Salome gelesen und von der NZZ rezensiert wurde, wuchs das Interesse an Wölflis Werk. In zahlreichen postumen Ausstellungen wurde er als wichtiger Vertreter der Art brut gewürdigt. 1975 wurde in Bern die Adolf-Wölfli-Stiftung gegründet. (D. Baumann, in: HLS). -- Walter Morgenthaler (Ursenbach 1882-1965 Bern), ref., von Ursenbach. Medizinstudium in Bern, Wien und Zürich, dort 1908 Staatsexamen. Ausbildung in Psychiatrie in Bern, Zürich und Basel. 1913 Oberarzt an der Anstalt Münsingen sowie an der psychiatrischen Universitätsklinik Waldau in Bern. 1918 Habilitation. 1920 Leiter des privaten Nervensanatoriums Münchenbuchsee. Ab 1925 in freier Praxis in Bern. Morgenthaler förderte die Ausbildung des psychiatrischen Pflegepersonals und war ein Pionier des Rorschach'schen Formdeutversuchs. Er entdeckte den schizophrenen Künstler Adolf Wölfli und richtete in der Waldau ein Psychiatriemuseum ein. (Chr. Müller, in: HLS). - "Walter Morgenthaler (1882-1965) beschäftigte sich wie damals üblich vor allem mit der psychodiagnostischen Interpretation der bildnerischen Werke. Gleichzeitig hinterliess er mit seiner Sammlung im heutigen Psychiatrie-Museum Bern eine auch in künstlerischer Hinsicht einzigartige Sammlung von 5000 Arbeiten. Neben der Prinzhorn-Sammlung aus Heidelberg ist sie eine der weltweit umfassendsten und wichtigsten dieser Art. Es ist u.a. Morgenthalers Engagement zu verdanken, dass die 'Outsider Art', auch Art Brut genannt, öffentliche Anerkennung und Wertschätzung erhielt." (Aus: Kunstmuseum Bern, Medienmitteilung vom 30.01.2008 zur Ausstellung 'Adolf Wöfli Universum. Eine Retrospektive / Der Himmel ist blau. Werke aus der Sammlung Morgenthaler, Waldau', vom 1. Februar bis 18. Mai 2008). Vgl. auch Harald Szeemann et al., Der Hang zum Gesamtkunstwerk, Ausstellungskatalog 1983, pp. 245-250.

        Dish of Apples, A

      London & New York: Hodder & Stoughton, 1921. - Amongst "Rackham's Best Book Illustrations"(RACKHAM, Arthur). PHILLPOTTS, Eden. A Dish of Apples. With Illustrations by Arthur Rackham. London & New York: Hodder & Stoughton, [1921]. Edition de Luxe. Limited to 520 copies (this copy being No. 398), numbered and signed by the artist. Small quarto (10 x 7 5/8 in; 254 x 193 mm). 75, (3) pp. Illustrated with three full-page mounted illustrations in color with tissue guards and twenty-three drawings in black and white.Publisher's cream cloth pictorially stamped in gilt. Pictorial end papers. Engraved bookplate on front paste-down. A fine copy housed in blue cloth clamshell case.In his chapter "Rackham's Best Book Illustrations 2," Getttings discusses work found within this book as reflective of the artist's maturity and confidence, Rackham's pictures "tending to be less coloured drawings [and] gradually becoming more and more like paintings" (Gettings, Arthur Rackham, p.139)."The appearance of Eden Phillpotts' A Dish of Apples brought a characteristically appreciative letter from its author to the artist: 'I am immensely pleased at the charm & originality of your most attractive drawings. The humor of them especially drew me.' Rackham was achieving a new harmony of colour, his drawings for A Dish of Apples, to quote an American admirer Martin Birnbaum, being 'light and sparkling with a passionate rose, glowing greens and primrose yellow'' (Hudson, Arthur Rackham His Life and Work, pp. 118-119."Eden Phillpotts (4 November 1862 – 29 December 1960) was an English author, poet and dramatist. He was born in Mount Abu, British India, educated in Plymouth, Devon, and worked as an insurance officer for 10 years before studying for the stage and eventually becoming a writer. He co-wrote two plays with his daughter Adelaide Phillpotts.He was the author of many novels, plays and poems about Dartmoor. His Dartmoor cycle of 18 novels and two volumes of short stories still has many avid readers despite the fact that many titles are out of print.Phillpotts wrote many other books with a Dartmoor setting. He was for many years the President of the Dartmoor Preservation Association and cared passionately about the conservation of Dartmoor.One of his novels, Widecombe Fair, inspired by an annual fair at the village of Widecombe-in-the-Moor, provided the scenario for his comic play The Farmer's Wife. It went on to become a silent movie of the same name, directed by Alfred Hitchcock and filmed in 1927. The cast included Jameson Thomas, Lillian Hall-Davis, Gordon Harker and Gibb McLaughlin.Phillpotts was a friend of Agatha Christie, who was an admirer of his work and a regular visitor to his home. Jorge Luis Borges was another admirer." (Wikipedia).Latimore and Haskell, p. 54. Riall, p. 144. Gettings, p. 179. Hudson, p. 170.

        Mitsou. Quarante images par Baltusz.

      - - Rotapfel-Verlag, Erlenbach-Zurich & Leipzig 1921. Préface de Rainer Maria Rilke.  4º m. 13, (3) p., 40 hojas. 40 ilustraciones. Rústica. A los 10 años, Balthus realizó su primera obra de arte importante: 40 dibujos en los que narra la historia de un niño (su propia historia) que encuentra a un gato, lo adopta, pasea, juega y duerme con él, y finalmente? lo pierde y llora desconsoladamente. Rilke, compañero sentimental de la madre del joven  Balthazar Klossowski de Rola  se emocionó tanto con los dibujos que escribió un prefacio y los hizo publicar con el título de Mitsou, Histoire d?un chat en 1921. En el prefacio de Mitsou, Rilke cuenta con palabras la historia que Balthus narra en sus dibujos, y reflexiona acerca de la pérdida y la frustración, y la dificultad para aprehender, dictar, controlar, poseer otras vidas? En definitiva, sólo se posee algo cuando se renuncia a ello. Independientemente del encanto intrínseco que tiene la obra, es a la vez una clave para la comprensión de la enigmática personalidad de Balthus, que durante toda su vida se identificó con los gatos (véase su autorretrato de 1935 ?El Rey de los Gatos?.  Se trata de un ejemplar muy bien conservado de un libro frágil que suele encontrarse bastante ajado. Gatos, chat, cat, Rilke

        Women in Love

      London: Martin Secker, 1921 - FIRST TRADE EDITION in extremely rare original dust jacket; preceded by the scarce privately-printed New York limited edition of 1920. "In spite of what he feared would be the fate of his fiction after The Rainbow, in spring 1916 he started again on the ‘Sisters’ material; after an enormous creative effort in which he wrote the whole book twice he had finished the first version of Women in Love by November 1916. But it was rejected by every publisher who saw it; the fact that it contained recognizable re-creations of several people (including Russell, Heseltine, and the Morrells) did not help; nor did its vivid portrayal of what one publisher's reader called ‘the writer's expressions of antipathy to England and the forms of English civilisation’. To Lawrence it was a novel in which ‘I have knocked the first loop-hole in the prison where we are all shut up’ (Letters, 2.663), but it would not be published for another four years" (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography).Octavo, original brown cloth, original dust jacket. Decorative bookplate of Montgomery Evans II on front pastedown. Book near-fine, with a little toning to text (as usual); dust jacket with toning to spine, chipping to spine edges and corners including an approximately 1x.75 in chip to top corner of rear panel; tape repairs to verso.

      London: Grant Richards, 1921 - INSCRIBED by the author, and very rare thus. An uncharacteristic work for this brilliantly witty writer, but a very personal one: this sentimental tale of an Arab boy's search for God mirrors Firbank's own religious conversion, a happy union of aestheticism and piety. The author's short orchidaceous life ended in 1926, and copies of his works are seldom encountered signed. Edition limited to 300 copies. (Benkovitz A8a).

        Wanted Poster

      Salt Lake City, UT: Office of the Chief Police, 1921. Wanted poster [26 cm x 18 cm] Age toning with a small contemporary ink stamp from the Salt Lake Police. Attractively matted and framed. The two suspects are identified as Paul Murray - alias - E.B. Williamson and Howard Harber. This poster contains a mug shot of Murray. Murray is described as "Age 23 h 5 ft 8 in. weight 130 lbs.. complexion florid, hair red, eyes blue, teeth good, nativity Georgia, occupation chauffeur, has scar under left eye." Harber is described as "Hair brown, eyes dark, height 6 ft. 2 1/2 in., weight 158 lbs., 21 yrs. old, nativity Queensland, Australia, occupation bridgeman, complexion ruddy, build slender, has scar on right upper left."& & The Salt Lake Telegram of September 6, 1921 wrote: "The Robbery of Beck's Hot Springs took place last night at 8:20 o'clock. When five masked men quietly and systematically secured envelopes and cash belonging to the bathers to the extent of $1000. Bathers were compelled to look on while the robbers looted to the checkroom and cash register. The telephone was torn from the wall in order that no alarm could be given. Three of the bandits entered the office while the two others waited outside in the machine. Thirty-five envelopes containing the money and valuable of the bathers were gathered together and thrust into a Boston bag belonging to P.T. Boise, manager of the Springs."& & The text below Murray's mug shot states: "On the evening of September 5th 1921 Beck's Hot Springs, a bathing Resort near here was held up by five men, two being apprehended and three still out. Two of the three men out have been identified and FELONY COMPLAINTS AND WARRANTS have been issued against them. Please FILE THESE FINGER PRINTS in your bureau and should you apprehend either of these men hold and wire at our expense and an officer with proper papers will come for them." & & The third man was later identified as John Doe Brown - alias - John Carr. The three would steal a car in Denver and later they would surface in Oklahoma. Although Utah authorities would press for their extradition they were charged in Federal court. The Salt Lake Telegram for November 21, 1921 wrote: " Assistant United States District attorney David H. Cannon has requested the Oklahoma federal authorities to hold the three alleged Beck's Hot Springs bandits for Salt Lake. The man are Paul Murray, Howard Harber and John Carr. They are held in Oklahoma under the Dyer motor vehicles act." These three would never spend anytime in Utah jails for this crime.

        Autograph Letter to Fellow surrealist, Roger Vitrac

      - A rare autograph letter signed by French poet, Louis Aragon to surrealist playwright Roger Vitrac. Aragon writes, "A certain spirit of perversity made me visit you the other day, Roger Vitrac. I forbade myself from telling you in person what I could explain to you by writing. Truly, it's you that made it that way, and I'd like to repeat this same thing next time I visit. I should add that the inexplicable chatter last Tuesday was not at all due to a tendency to become paralysed which keeps returning me to a place I dread. Useless explanations. In friendship? Louis Aragon." Aragon met Vitrac in 1921, when Aragon was still active in the Dadaist movement. He went on to become a founding member of the Surrealist movement, which Vitrac joined, contributing to their early printed editions. In very fine condition, and an excellent association piece between two important Surrealists.

Nei 24 protocolli gli anziani illustrano i sistemi per ottenere il controllo del mondo: Vogliono convincere i gentili da loro chiamati Goyim ad assecondare la loro volontà. I loro metodi preferiti sono la diffusione di idee liberali, il sovvertimento della morale, la promozione della libertà di stampa, la contestazione dell?autorità tradizionale e dei valori cristiani e patriottici. I Protocolli furono pubblicati per la prima volta in Italia nel 1921, ma la loro massima diffusione si ebbe a partire dal 1937, grazie all?edizione italiana curata da Giovanni Preziosi con un saggio introduttivo di Julius Evola: Quest?ultimo pur ritenendo palese che i Protocolli fossero un falso storico, sosteneva tuttavia che le idee e i pensieri in essi esposti stavano piano piano verificandosi e trovando riscontri negli avvenimenti della storia contemporanea. In folio (cm. 34,5); pp. 60, (4). Raro. Axs

        Wanted Poster

      Office of the Chief Police Salt Lake City, UT: Office of the Chief Police, 1921. Wanted poster [26 cm x 18 cm] Age toning with a small contemporary ink stamp from the Salt Lake Police. Attractively matted and framed. The two suspects are identified as Paul Murray - alias - E.B. Williamson and Howard Harber. This poster contains a mug shot of Murray. Murray is described as "Age 23 h 5 ft 8 in. weight 130 lbs.. complexion florid, hair red, eyes blue, teeth good, nativity Georgia, occupation chauffeur, has scar under left eye." Harber is described as "Hair brown, eyes dark, height 6 ft. 2 1/2 in., weight 158 lbs., 21 yrs. old, nativity Queensland, Australia, occupation bridgeman, complexion ruddy, build slender, has scar on right upper left." The Salt Lake Telegram of September 6, 1921 wrote: "The Robbery of Beck's Hot Springs took place last night at 8:20 o'clock. When five masked men quietly and systematically secured envelopes and cash belonging to the bathers to the extent of $1000. Bathers were compelled to look on while the robbers looted to the checkroom and cash register. The telephone was torn from the wall in order that no alarm could be given. Three of the bandits entered the office while the two others waited outside in the machine. Thirty-five envelopes containing the money and valuable of the bathers were gathered together and thrust into a Boston bag belonging to P.T. Boise, manager of the Springs." The text below Murray's mug shot states: "On the evening of September 5th 1921 Beck's Hot Springs, a bathing Resort near here was held up by five men, two being apprehended and three still out. Two of the three men out have been identified and FELONY COMPLAINTS AND WARRANTS have been issued against them. Please FILE THESE FINGER PRINTS in your bureau and should you apprehend either of these men hold and wire at our expense and an officer with proper papers will come for them." The third man was later identified as John Doe Brown - alias - John Carr. The three would steal a car in Denver and later they would surface in Oklahoma. Although Utah authorities would press for their extradition they were charged in Federal court. The Salt Lake Telegram for November 21, 1921 wrote: " Assistant United States District attorney David H. Cannon has requested the Oklahoma federal authorities to hold the three alleged Beck's Hot Springs bandits for Salt Lake. The man are Paul Murray, Howard Harber and John Carr. They are held in Oklahoma under the Dyer motor vehicles act." These three would never spend anytime in Utah jails for this crime.

Frank Dobie said, "Once you start reading Captain Gillett's story of the dog that guarded the Indian-besieged camp in Crow Flat; of the chase of old Victorio, Apache, into Mexico; of the round-up of outlaws in the Junction country; of the desperate ride after Sam Bass; of the Peg Leg robber gang on the San Saba; of the long ride with General Baylor from San Antonio to El Paso, you can not stop until you have finished the story, and then you want to begin the next." Boldly inscribed and signed by the author, Texas Ranger J. B. Gillett on the second free end page: "Very Truly Yours, J. B. Gillett." The first free end page has an inscription that reads: "Presented to Baylen (or Baylor) Shaw by the Author, 1922. 332 pages. All 8 plates are present with the original tissue guards.

Howard Woolmer's bibliography of the Hogarth Press).

Following its publication, Virginia Woolf wrote to her sister Vanessa in May 1921: "The Daily Mail says that Leonard has written one of the greatest stories of the world [Pearls and swine].
