        Der dritte Weg- ein Roman von Egmont Colerus/ Rarität mit Widmung und Signatur des Autors!!!!!

      Leipzig: ILF- Verlag. 1921 1.-5. Tsd./ 1. Auflage 20 cm. 384 Seiten. Leineneinband ohne OU leicht schief, Einband an den Kanten abgegriffen, gebräunt,. Inhalt:Erstes Buch: DER GÖTZE KULTUR:Der Zusammenprall- Die Durchdringung- Die eiserne Wand- Der Wurf- Die Ringwellen fluten zurück;Zweites Buch: SCHACH DEM KREISLAUF Der Aufmarsch- Maschinen und Brücken- Das Gehirn- Der Sieg- Das neue Fragezeichen\"Egmont Colerus von Geldern (1888- 1939) war ein österreichischer Schriftsteller. Colerus von Geldern stammte aus einer alten niederländischen Offiziersfamilie, die um 1750 aus Holland nach Österreich eingewandert war. .. 1920 veröffentlichte Colerus seine ersten beiden Bücher - Antarktis, das er bereits 1914, sowie Sodom, das er 1917 bis 1919 verfasst hatte. Als Colerus nach zwei Jahren wieder halbwegs arbeitsfähig war, trat er im Herbst 1921 hauptberuflich als Beamter ins österreichische Bundesamt für Statistik ein, die heutige Statistik Austria. In dieser Zeit verfasste er weitere historische Romane, Sachbücher und auch Dramen. Seine Bücher schrieb er großteils in der Nacht, üblicherweise zwischen zehn Uhr und Mitternacht. 1930 wurde seine Tochter Monica geboren; dieses Ereignis spiegelt sich in seinem Roman Matthias Werner im letzten Kapitel Das Gebet an der Wiege, das auch eine Vision des Zweiten Weltkriegs enthält. Ein von Walther Neugebauer geleiteter Kurs für höhere und statistische Mathematik, den er am Bundesamt für Statistik besuchte, erweckte in ihm die Liebe zur Mathematik. Um \"die Abscheu vor der reinsten, fast möchte ich sagen, heiligsten aller Wissenschaften\" zu bekämpfen, schrieb er seine populärwissenschaftlichen mathematischen Sachbücher \"Vom Einmaleins zum Integral\", \"Vom Punkt zur vierten Dimension\" und \"Von Pythagoras bis Hilbert\", die in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt wurden und auch heute noch für den mathematisch interessierten Laien sehr lesenswert sind.....Colerus behandelte in seinen Romanen aus einer zutiefst humanistischen Weltsicht in impressionistischer, teilweise auch expressionistischer Art vielfältige Problemstellungen der Zwischenkriegszeit, teils in der Form von Zeitromanen, teils in historischer Einkleidung. Er zählte damit in der Zwischenkriegszeit zu den erfolgreichsten deutschen Schriftstellern (Gesamtauflage über 670.000 Exemplare), einzelne seiner Werke wurden in bis zu zehn Sprachen übersetzt.\" aus wikipedia Versand D: 5,00 EUR

        KEYNES'S BEST-SELLER IN RUSSIAN] Ekonomicheskiye posledstviya mira / per. s angl. G.P. Struve i T.S. Lurie [i.e. The Economic Consequences of the Peace / translated from English by G.P. Struve and T.S. Lurie]

      Severnye ogni, Stockholm 1921 - 199 pp. 8vo. A fine clean copy. Contemporary cloth binding, original wrappers preserved. Light tanning to the wrappers, slightly rubbed on the extremities of the covers. Rare. The first Russian translation of the world-famous work was printed in Stockholm by Russian emigrant publishers. John Maynard Keynes (1883-1946) was considered to be one of the most influential economists of the 20th century. His second book, The Economic Consequences of the Peace, was published in late 1919 and became an immediate success on both sides of the Atlantic. The work established Keynes's reputation with the public as a leading economist. In six months, the book had sold 100,000 copies with translations into 12 languages. In this work he gave an eloquent and detailed analysis of the Versailles Treaty and made a convincing case that it would have far-reaching and damaging consequences. He wrote that ".if we aim at the impoverishment of central Europe, vengeance, I dare predict, will not limp" a statement that grimly and correctly anticipated the events of World War II.

        Die Geschichte des Veteranen- und Militärvereins \"Kampfgenossenschaft\" in Göppingen 1871-1921. Eine Festschrift zur Feier seines 50-jährigen Bestehens.

      Göppingen, Buchdruckerei der Göppinger Zeitung, 1921. 56 S. 23 x 15 cm, Broschur Einband berieben, bestoßen, fleckig, angeschmutzt, eselsohrig und am Rücken gebräunt. Rücken unten mit etwas Verlust. Heft mit durchgehender Knickspur. Schnitt fleckig. Bis S. 10 mit durchschlagendem kleinem Fleck. Hinten etwas fleckig. Gutes Leseexemplar. Extrem selten.\"Aron Tänzer (* 30. Januar 1871 in Preßburg; † 26. Februar 1937 in Göppingen) war ein Rabbiner und Autor zahlreicher wissenschaftlicher Publikationen.Der Vater von Aron Tänzer war Rabbiner und die Mutter arbeitete als Weißnäherin für die Preßburger Judenschaft. Im Alter von 21 Jahren immatrikulierte sich Aron Tänzer an der Universität in Berlin. Er studierte Philosophie, Germanistik und semitische Philologie. Nachdem er 1895 promoviert wurde, bemühte sich Aron Tänzer um eine Anstellung als Rabbiner. Im Oktober 1896 bewarb er sich mit Erfolg auf die freie Rabbinerstelle in Hohenems.Zur Jüdischen Kultusgemeinde Hohenems gehörten auch die in den anderen Gemeinden Vorarlbergs und von 1878 bis 1914 formell auch die in Tirol lebenden Juden. Seine umfassende geistesgeschichtliche Ausbildung brachte Tänzer sowohl in zahlreichen wissenschaftlichen Publikationen als auch im Bereich der Erwachsenenbildung zur Anwendung. So hielt er etwa für den „Bildungsclub Hohenems“ des Öfteren Vorträge über Literatur und Geschichte. 1905 veröffentlichte er die heute noch als Standardwerk geltende Geschichte der Juden in Hohenems. Seine Geisteshaltung und seine religiösen Anschauungen waren geprägt von liberalen Ideen und kultureller Offenheit.Von 1905 bis 1907 war Tänzer Rabbiner in Meran und wurde ab dem 1. September 1907 Rabbiner an der Synagoge zu Göppingen. Diese Funktion, in der er für das Bezirksrabbinat zuständig war, hatte er bis zu seinem Tod 1937 inne. Gleich zu Beginn des Ersten Weltkriegs hatte sich Tänzer freiwillig zum Einsatz als Feldrabbiner gemeldet. Drei Jahre diente er an der Ostfront. Tänzer betreute die Soldaten, half im Lazarett und richtete für die notleidende Bevölkerung Volksküchen ein. Für seinen Einsatz im Felde wurde Tänzer mit mehreren Orden ausgezeichnet.Tänzer legte seit 1909 den Grundstock für eine Volksbibliothek, der späteren Stadtbibliothek in Göppingen. Seit 1921 war er Ehrenmitglied des Göppinger Veteranen- und Militärvereins „Kampfgemeinschaft“. An Tänzer erinnert in Göppingen das Rabbiner-Tänzer-Haus (Freihofstraße 46), das frühere Rabbinatsgebäude.\" (Wikipedia) Versand D: 7,00 EUR

        ORIGINAL SELF PORTRAIT INK DRAWING,in. AN ONLOOKER IN FRANCE. 1917 - 1919.

      FIRST EDITION. Large 8vo.(10.2 x 7.8 inches). Illustrated with 96 plates. Publishers original green cloth binding with gilt lettering and ruling to spine. Binding a bit rubbed and bumped but overall sound and the gilt still bright. This copy has a full page original ink self portrait of Orpen on the front blank endpaper, showing the artist painting the famous American Wall Street lawyer and art collector, Paul Cravath. The drawing is inscribed by Orpen at the bottom of the page "My very dear Mr Cravath-It was a big job to tackle on those hot summer afternoons you must admit. All good wishes in 1922.-------(?) William Orpen". The drawing shows Cravath, a large man who stood 6ft 4inches, sat posing while a much smaller Orpen, the heat rising from his head and his sleeves rolled up, paints the portrait. The book has the bookplate of the prolific author and traveller Cecil Roberts who has written a note on the blank verso of the frontis piece about Cravath and how he commissioned Orpen to paint his portrait, for a sum of £5000 plus expenses. While staying with Cravath at his Regency Long Island home, where the portrait was painted, Orpen gave Cravath this book as a memento. After Cravath died (in 1940) the house, and presumably some of the contents, was bought by Baron Eugene de Rothschild (in 1942) and Roberts notes that he was often his guest there. He doesn't explain how the book came to be his. There is one more note from Roberts,under the portrait of Lord Riddell (plate XLIX) mentioning his being at a press dinner given for him in 1919. Aside from being third in charge, and legal advisor, of the American War Mission during the Inter-allied War Conference of 1917, the first American mission to a European council in history, Paul Cravath is mainly known for his "Cravath System" which transformed the way law firms work and is still in use today. The "Cravath system" included hiring new law school graduates, then training them within the firm as associates,and eventually inviting the best to become partners. Throughout the twentieth century most of the growth of the big law firms relied on this system of recruiting, internal training, and loyalty to the firm. A nice self portrait of the Artist at work, all the better for being within a copy of Orpen's fascinating war memoir.:

        Dish of Apples, A

      London & New York: Hodder & Stoughton, 1921. - Amongst "Rackham's Best Book Illustrations"[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. 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. 77), 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, front cover pictorially stamped in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, pictorial end papers, top edge gilt. A fine copy.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.Latimore and Haskell, p. 54. Riall, p. 144. Gettings, p. 179. Hudson, p. 170.

        Illustrated autograph letter signed to Gilbert Seldes.

      New York: 317 West 29th Street, 17 December, 1921. Single page (275 x 213 mm), written and drawn on one side only. Creased where folded, chipped at edges, with loss at lower outer corner affecting two words. In this illustrated letter written six weeks before his death, John Butler Yeats (1839?1922), father of the poet W. B. Yeats, writes to Dial editor Gilbert Seldes: "? That hour glass is a great comfort to Father Time & to others. Art with representation, that is, without condition is the latest demands of austere critics. These people, & among them are men of distinction, have never, not for one second known the thrill of a picture. No one knows the thrill except the painter ? & these alas are as ignorant as sheep & quite incapable of expressing their thoughts in grammatical English ? You should have let me speak ? I am disappointed but not surprised. I am only surprised when you admit Anatole France?" (Anatole France's autobiographical fragment La Vie en fleur (Life in Bloom) was published in The Dial, volume 71, July?December 1921.) The sketch takes up the upper half of the page and shows a blind critic, dropping his spectacles, groping his way towards Father Time (a self-portrait of JBY), who is seated on a barrel holding an hour glass in one hand, his scythe in the other, while three figures (representative of artists past and present?) watch on smilingly. Yeats had moved to New York at the age of 69, where he was friendly with members of the Ashcan School of painters and lived chiefly off the generosity of John Quinn. He died in his New York home on 3 February 1922.

        168+ PHOTOGRAPHS FROM CUBAN SHIPPING ALBUM OF "MARITIMA PARRENO"

      1921. Very Good. (CUBA). 168 + ORIGINAL IMAGES FROM HISTORIA GRAFICA DE LA MARITIMA PARRENO. (FROM PHOTO ALBUM OF THE PARRENO DOCK COMPANY). Santiago de Cuba, 1921-41. 168 b/w photographs, four b/w photo postcards and one small negative taken along the waterfront of Santiago de Cuba between 1920 and 1930, and two from 1941. This collection is from the record kept by Cuban businessman Desiderio Parreno, "Custom House Broker, Forwarding Agent, Steamship Agent, Insurance, Real Estate," of the renovation and expansion of his company's docks and warehouses. Documents the need for renovation (photos of cargo - mostly rum and sugar - piled up beside warehouses too small to accommodate it, small docking areas, etc.), the American engineers, the construction, and the further development of the completed facilities. Docks and sheds are named "Desiderio," "Luz," "Isabel," etc. One is named "Don Pancho" to commemorate a long-time employee. Earthquake damage and repair in 1932, dredging of the harbor, the embarcation of a locomotive named "Desiderio," acquisition of a crane, installation of telephones and other improvements are shown. Includes four copies of a staff photo with lists of names. An interesting document of Cuban commercialism before the Revolution, in mostly very good condition. Many images are captioned on the reverse with typing (visible in image) or pencil, and some are marked in pencil on the image itself. Sizes vary; four are 4 x 12 inches; the majority are about 3 x 5 inches, some smaller, with 39 being 5 x 7 inches, 11 being 7 1/2 x 9 1/2 inches, and the large torn group photo is 9 1/2 x 12 1/2 inches.
