        Die Blume Anna. Die neue Anna Blume. Eine Gedichtsammlung aus den Jahren 1918-1922. Einbecker Politurausgabe.

      Berlin; Verlag der Sturm, [1922/1923]. 22,5x15,5 cm. First ediiton. 32 pp. Original printed wrappers. Housed in chemise and a grey card slipcase with a maroon leather-label on spine. Spine and margins of wrappers are slightly faded. There is a slight nick at the top corner on pp. 29-32 and on rear wrapper. Contents are a bit toned, as should be expected. A fine copy. With a laid-in gift card, stating that Gerard and Peggy Bonnier received the book as a Christmas present in 1976. Schwitters (1887-1948), German artist and writer, closely connected to the Dada movement, never as a member but closely linked to some of its members. He termed his personal form of Dada, Merz, and published his first book, the Anna Blume. Dichtungen, in 1919. The book was an immediate success but did also arouse public aversion. He continued using the name Anna Blume in poems and collages, and its meaning has been much discussed, though never settled. The present book is a mix of typographical poems, sound poetry, dialogues, cut-up technique, a few short prose texts and a picture-poem (Gesetztes Bildgedicht) in which capital vowels and consonants are arranged within squares. Schwitters's pioneering and experimental approach to different art forms has had a significant influence on 20th century literature and art. Wilpert/Gühring 5.

        Krippenspiel in Xhosa. Wartburg/Südafrika, 1921/1922.

      1922. 30 SS. auf 40 Bll. Handschrift auf Deutsch, Englisch und Xhosa. Rote und schwarze Tinte auf liniertem Papier. Halblederband der Zeit. Kl.-Folio. Die vorliegende Sammelhandschrift eines südafrikanischen Missionars vereint das auf Deutsch geführte Ausgabenbuch der Missionsstation Wartburg (8 SS.; Beginn) und eine sprachwissenschaftliche Abhandlung "The Music of the Xosa (Bantu) Languages" (14 SS.; Schluß) mit einem volkssprachlichen Krippenspiel, betitelt "Umbdlalo wabatwana we-Xmas" (6 SS.). Der Text wird eingeleitet vom Verzeichnis der beim Wartburger Weihnachtsfest 1921 zu lesenden Bibelstellen und zu singenden Kirchenlieder; es folgt das zwei Szenen umfassende Krippenspiel mit den Rollen "Ruben", "Jonathan", "Natau", "Masitandaze", "Mariya" und "Joseph". - So frühe Literaturzeugnisse in afrikanischen Sprachen gelten aufgrund der vorherrschenden oralen Tradition als Seltenheiten und setzen bedingt durch die Missionierung überhaupt erst mit dem 19. Jahrhundert ein. Diese Handschrift ist nach Beurteilung von Dr. Wolfgang Zimmer (Institut für Germanistik an der Univ. des Saarlands und Goethe-Institut Yaoundé, Forschungsschwerpunkt afrikanisches Theater) als frühestes bekanntes Theaterstück in einer afrikanischen Sprache anzusehen. - Rücken lädiert; Deckel etwas gelockert, sonst gut erhalten.

        Jaguar: The Complete Story (Englisch) Gebundene Ausgabe von Heiner Stertkamp (Autor)

      Motorbooks, 1922. In 1922, a company calling itself Swallow began manufacturing motorcycle sidecars. In 1927, adopting the name SS, the company built its first automobiles, and in 1945, it switched to the name Jaguar.This richly illustrated book tells the colorful story behind one of the most revered makers of high-performance and sports cars. From the inklings of greatness in its distant beginnings to its ascension to fame with the postwar XK series cars followed by the iconic E-Type introduced in 1961, this book traces the path of a company that produced vehicles of unprecedented power and beauty--including four-door saloons, race prototypes, the GT-oriented XJ-S, and the fabulous XJ-220 supercar.The story continues today when, under Ford ownership, Jaguar continues to thrive, offering a line of top-notch modern cars. Jaguar: The Complete Story is an exhaustively researched account of the companys story, with a detailed look at every car it has built. Racing vehicles and prototypes receive due treatment as well, and an extensive appendix of technical specifications rounds out the book.

Tiratura limitata di 1333 esemplari numerati. Esemplare n°864. Stampa nell'Officina Fratelli Magnani di Pescia. Esemplare firmato dall'Autore e dall'editore (Ettore Cozzani) e dall'Autore. Applicata fotocopia della lettera di presentazione del volume da parte del Cozzani. Nastro segnapagina in stoffa. Splendido e raro. Unanimemente considerata l'Opera principale di Giulio Aristide Sartorio (Roma, 1860-1932), "Sibilla" si rifà alla leggenda medioevale di Lionello e Sibilla: lui Cavaliere di Santa Romana Chiesa, lei maga incantatrice, abitante degli inferi. Il riferimento mitologico costituisce altresì l'intreccio della storia di Guerin Meschino e della Maga Alcina e, nella tradizione germanica, la storia di Tannhauser e Venere, che fornì ispirazione a Wagner ed al Beardsley in "Under the Hill". Una parte delle splendide illustrazioni, elaborate dal Sartorio nell'arco di un decennio, videro la luce su "L'Eroica" tra il 1913 e il '14. In questa sede il Cozzani ne segnalò la particolarità tecnica, trattandosi di incisioni su zinco anziché su legno, col metodo dell'incisione in rilievo ad effetto xilografico. Di grande impatto il risultato grafico e pittorico complessivo, degno testimone della maturità artistica del Sartorio. Dopo la stampa tutte le lastre vennero distrutte. > Servolini, 735-736.

        Das Leben des Menschen. 5 Bde. (komplett).

      Stuttgart: Franckh'sche; 1922-1931.. Band 5 mit gefaltetem Poster (95 x 47 cm) "Der Mensch als Industriepalast" in Lasche (Orig.-Farblithographie (12 Farben). Kanten tls. mit kleinen Knickspuren; äußere Falz etw. gebräunt. Insgesamt kräftiger Druck bei Fricke & Co. Stuttgart. - Ohne die zweite Beilage "Der Stammbaum des Menschen"). Vgl. auch Debschitz, Man-Machine - Maschine Mensch (N.Y. 2009): "Eine Pionierleistung des modernen Informationsdesigns, die bis heute durch Themen- und Stilvielfalt, Humor und originelle Analogien fasziniert". - Kahn (1888, Halle (Saale) - 1968, Locarno, Schweiz) war sowohl als Arzt sowie als Buchautor erfolgreich. Er schaffte es, in seinen Naturwissenschaftlichen Büchern, komplexe Themen mit außergewöhnlichen Metaphern allgemeinverständlich darzustellen - meist mit eigenen Illustrationen (in der Verlagswerbung für die Publikation wird ua. folgendermaßen zitiert: "(...)Diese Bände vom Leben des Menschen sind ein Kulturdokument ersten Ranges, ein Zeugnis für den Hochstand der Wissenschaft, zugleich aber vor allem ein Werk didaktischer Meisterschaft in Wort und Bild, die erstaunlich ist" (...)). Zahlreiche Künstler ließen sich von Kahns Darstellung "Der Mensch als Industriepalast" aus seinem Hauptwerk "Das Leben des Menschen" inspirieren. Nach der Machtergreifung durch die Nationalsozialisten sah sich Kahn 1933 gezwungen, seine gynäkologische Praxis in Berlin zu schliessen. Seine Bücher wurden öffentlich verbrannt und kamen auf den Index. Ua. durch prominente Hilfe wie Albert Einstein, erhielt Kahn 1941 die Einreisegenehmigung für die USA. Später kehrte er nach Europa zurück und starb 1968 in einer Klinig in Locarno.

        Les Mammifères de l'Eocène inférieur français et leurs gisements

      Paris, Masson, 1922. 116, (2)pp., et 8 planches accompagnées de 8 serpentes explicatives imprimées exemplaire broché, couverture bleu imprimée en noir (haut insolé) 1922, 1922, in-4, 116, (2)pp, et 8 planches accompagnées de 8 serpentes explicatives imprimées, exemplaire broché, couverture bleu imprimée en noir (haut insolé), Edition originale de la thèse de Teilhard de Chardin soutenue, comme l'indique une date tamponnée sur la couverture et la page de titre, le 22 mars 1922, devant une commission d'examen composée de MM. Haug, Rabaud et Combes. En étudiant des mammifères de l'époque géologique de l'Eocène inférieur (-55,8 millions d'années à -48,6 millions d'année), Teilhard de Chardin souhaite apporter des réponses au problème de l'origine des mammifères placentaires. En appendice, l'auteur ajoute une étude sur quelques formes archaïques nouvelles de Phosphorites du Quercy. Les 8 planches de phototypies reproduisent les ossements fossiles étudiés. Teilhard de Chardin, après avoir enseigné la physique et la chimie entre 1905 et 1908, débute des études de paléontologie et de géologie au début des années 1910 jusqu'à obtenir sa licence en 1920 puis le grade de docteur ès Sciences Naturelles en 1922. Les écrits de cet infatigable curieux de l'humanité, philosophe, scientifique et jésuite, développent une riche et troublante interrogation sur les origines et l'évolution de toutes les espèces vivantes, en particulier du ce qu'il nomme, le "phénomène humain". Rare thèse, en parfait état, d'un des grands penseurs du XXe siècle

      1922 in-4 en feuilles A) Fort dossier concernant la préparation du bal de l'internat de 1922, dont Pichon semble s'être particulièrement chargé : musique notée et/ou texte manuscrit des chansons des différents hôpitaux parisiens (par des mains multiples), lettres autographes de certains des internes en charge de l'organisation des différents cortèges, une lettre autographe signée de Raoul Kourilsky à propos de la mise en musique de la chanson de Pichon, notes autographes pour la préparation du cortège, imprimés divers, etc. ; B) un dossier intitulé "diverses miennes chansons médicales" comportant des chansons composées par Pichon (l'une avec Coty) : les chansons sont souvent longues, parfois à l'état de brouillon (21 pp. in-4 et 9 pp. in-8 ou in-12) ; C) un dossier intitulé "service Quénu 1910/11" : une longue suite de chansons écrites à plusieurs mains sur le service du professeur Edouard Quénu (hôpital Cochin) (28 pp. in-4 dont 1 1/2 pp. de la main de Pichon, 1 dessin signé Détourbe), à la suite : 3 ff. de chansons notées par Pichon ; D) 4 dossiers de chansons notées ou écrites par Pichon dans les différents hôpitaux qu'il a fréquentés : Salpêtrière, Trousseau, Tenon, Enfans malades (une quarantaine de pages in-4 à in-12) ; E) chansons écrites par Pichon ou certains de ses amis (certaines signées Coty ou Raoul Chapelain) : une trentaine de pages in-4 à in-12 auxquelles on joint un ensemble de poèmes non paillards composés en l'honneur de Pichon par ses amis (certaines signatures illisibles, certains non signés) ; F) un ensemble de chansons populaires notées par Pichon, Jacques Damourette ou Hélène Pichon ainsi que des cahiers concernant les proverbes (environ 80 pp. grand in-4 à in-8) ; G) divers documents dont le menu des Enfans malades de 1924 illustré par Bonamy et plusieurs portraits de Pichon à la mine de plomb dont deux signés Pazzi. Personnage d'une grande richesse, d'une infinie curiosité et très complexe, Edouard Pichon est un contemporain et - par son intérêt pour le langage - un précurseur de Lacan, qui lui reprendra - entre autres - le concept de forclusion. Il est l'un des membres fondateurs du groupe de L'Evolution psychiatrique et de la Société Psychanalytique de Paris (dont il fut président de 1935 à 1937). Avec son oncle Jacques Damourette, il est l'auteur d'un monumental Essai de Grammaire française dont la publication s'étala sur près de 30 ans. Il fut également fervent maurrassien tout en étant dreyfusard, et le gendre de Pierre Janet sans être janetien. (Voir à son sujet, E. Roudinesco, Histoire de la psychanalyse en France, t. 1, pp. 297-320).

        Covenant of the Woodcraft Kindred" signed by Hargrave

      Kibbo Kift, London 1922 - "Covenant of the KK Kindred" ornately printed, signed by Hargrave, dated 15th June 1923 A very scarce item The organisation was founded by the charismatic Englishman John Hargrave (aka 'White Fox'), artist, author and Boy Scout Commissioner for Woodcraft and Camping, who had become disenchanted with the increasingly militaristic tendency in the Scout movement after World War I. Hargrave was promptly expelled from the Scouts by Scout founder Robert Baden-Powell. With a small group of like-minded, dissident, anti-war Scoutmasters and Scoutmistresses under his own direct leadership, he set about building an alternative and very different movement. Baden-Powell expelled Hargrave with extreme reluctance, and only after some wealthy backers had threatened to withdraw funding from the Scouts unless he was expelled. The Kibbo Kift (archaic Kentish dialect for 'proof of great strength'[2]) has been described as 'the only genuine English national movement of modern times' and was certainly very different from Baden-Powell's Boy Scouts. Based on the woodcraft principles of naturalist Ernest Thompson Seton that had been a key part of the early Scout programme, the Kibbo Kift was to be not merely a youth organisation but was to involve all ages and, very daring for the times, it was open to both sexes. The ideas of world peace and the regeneration of urban man through the open-air life replaced the nationalism and militarism Hargrave had detested in the post-World War I Scouts. Kinsmen and women were organised in Clans, Tribes and Lodges. Each individual took a 'woodcraft name', inspired by their ideas of 'Indian-style' names. The correct costume had to be hand-made by each individual or 'rooftree' (family group) and while the everyday 'habit' of Saxon hood, jerkin, shorts and long cloak must have seemed outlandish enough in the English countryside of the early 1920s; for ceremonial occasions, brilliantly coloured surcoats or silk-embroidered robes were worn by the various office-holders such as the Tallykeeper, Campswarden, Ritesmaster and Gleeman. Hargrave himself was 'Head Man' and his leadership was dynamic, inspirational and frankly autocratic. The Mark of the Kindred of the Kibbo Kift is typical of the symbolism that can be seen in many of their designs. Its meaning is: Worship (The K sign) Forever (the Circle of Unity and Eternity) Life (the Flame) through Knowledge (the Tree). Or again, ‘Worship Life Forever with Knowledge’. The Kibbo Kift's central activities of hiking and camping were refined and elevated to the level of a spiritual exercise. The weekend 'Tribal' Camps and the great annual 'Althing' were marked by colourful and impressive ritual, inspired by their ideas of what Native American ceremonies might be like, but couched in language reminiscent of the Norse Sagas and rich in Saxon archaisms. Kinsmen were not only required to make their own lightweight, one-man hiking tents (the first seen in England) but to decorate them with vivid, symbolic designs of their own devising. Influenced by Hargrave's own artistic taste, an ultra-modern 'futurist' style of design became general, and the robes, regalia, tents and other items of decorative art, often of an extremely high standard, represent an extraordinary 'democratisation' of the avant-garde art of the day. The Kibbo Kift were never more than a few hundred strong. Kinsmen and Kinswomen included the Suffragettes Emmeline Pethick Lawrence, Mary Neal and May Billinghurst, the journalist Henry Nevinson, the photographer Angus McBean, and Ruth Clark. The Advisory Committee included Havelock Ellis, Maurice Maeterlinck, the Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore, H. G. Wells and Professor Julian Huxley. D. H. Lawrence took an interest in the Kindred and it has been suggested that Mellors in Lady Chatterley's Lover is based on an archetypal Kinsman. The growth of the Kibbo Kift was not without its setbacks. In 1924, the South London co-operative lodges challenged Hargrave's leadership, an [Attributes: First Edition]
