        Autographed Letter Signed about childbirth on personal letterhead

      Buffalo, NY, 1923. unbound. 1 page, 7.25 x 8.5 inches, Buffalo, New York, January 24, 1923, writing to one of his disciples about Internal Podalic Version, in full: "Your letter just arrived and I will answer it now just to be sure how glad I was to hear from you. I was also glad to hear that you are doing well. The OB work will come, it may be a little slow at first, but remember that the general work makes a good foundation. A man during general work makes friends who later can be used in the special times. Take your time & do not hurry, you will do Versions in time I am sure. Come & see me at anytime. Dr. Reynolds is still handling the Chloroform & will be glad to hear from you that everything is O.K." Also included is an original prescription written by Dr. Potter on his personal script pad for a Ziegler Cord Clamp, used to tie the umbilical cord during childbirth. The letter has natural folds and slight discoloration and creasing on the left side; still in very good condition. The prescription is in fine condition. World acclaimed but controversial American Obstetrician best remembered for his practice of the groundbreaking but dangerous method of childbirth called Internal Podalic Version; changing the position of the fetus within the uterus during childbirth (breach births). A pioneer in the study of childbirth, both his technique and the equipment he developed were unique to him and his few disciples -- yet he performed over 25,000 successful childbirths in a career than spanned half a century. Today doctors usually deliver by Cesarean section any fetus not in the proper position.

        Meine Augen sind müde. Plakatmanifest und Ausstellungskatalog 'Malereien von Hundertwasser' 17. Okt. - 24. Nov. 1957.

      31,5 x 89 cm. 1 Bogen, beidseitig bedruckt (Offset), gefaltet. Das ungewöhnliche Format enthält seine Texte 'Ich esse nicht gern Kirschen', 'Ich bin schon ganz vertrottelt', ein Verzeichnis der Leihgeber (Max Lersch, Walter Eckert, Lara Vinci) und die Liste der zuletzt entstandenen Bilder. Otto Mauer, der Leiter der Galerie, distanzierte sich von Passagen im Text Hundertwassers, einer frühen Erscheinung seiner Architekturphantasien (Besser ist es, die Leute abzuknallen oder im Mutterleib umzubringen), die ein Jahr später in seinem Verschimmelungsmanifest zusammengefasst wurden. Die Galerie, 1923 von Otto Kallir als 'Neue Galerie' gegründet, hatte Mauer seit 1954, als er Domprediger von St. Stephan wurde, mit Kirchenhilfe von Kallir gemietet und 1963 in 'nächt' St. Stephan umbenennen müssen (Kallir nannte seine New Yorker Neugründung St. Etienne). Diese dritte Ausstellung Hundertwassers in Wien, seine erste außerhalb des Art Clubs, geht einher mit seinem internationalen Durchbruch dem Kauf seines Hauses in der Normandie und der Segeltour mit Hans Neuffer von Skandinavien nach England. Optisch und inhaltlich bedeutendes Dokument der 50er Jahre in Wien. - Gutes Exemplar, gefaltet, minimale Öffnung in einer Bugfalte.

        Le Balai du Valet [(Der Besen, das Ballett, der Ball) des Dieners]. Hiladi i druga noč [Die 1002. Nacht]. Mit einem Originalholzschnitt von Aleksandar Deroko

      RISTIĆ Marko; DEROKO, Aleksandar; MILOJEVIĆ, Miloje: Le Balai du Valet [(Der Besen, das Ballett, der Ball) des Dieners]. Hiladi i druga noč [Die 1002. Nacht]. »Kasina« 16-II-1923. Mit einem Originalholzschnitt von Aleksandar Deroko. Belgrad: 1923. 8°. (19,7 x 13 cm). Zweiseitig bedrucktes gelbes Blatt aus Maschinbütten. Fragment des Ankündigungsblatts einer dadaistischen Tanzperformance für vier Ballerinen und diverses Personal, die am 16. Februar 1923 als 7. von 13 Programmpunkten eines von den Vertretern der Belgrader Avantgarde unter dem Motto »Die 1002. Nacht« im örtlichen Casino Hotel veranstalteten Künstler-Balls ihre Uraufführung (und wohl auch einzige Vorstellung) erlebte. Die Vorderseite des Blattes schmückt ein markanter Holzschnitt des Architekten und Malers Aleksandar Deroko, der auch für Vorhang, Kulisse und Kostüme dieser Veranstaltung verantwortlich zeichnet. Deroko gilt als einer der exponiertesten bildnerischen Vertreter der Moderne in Jugoslawien und war u.a. auch Mitarbeiter der surrealistischen Zeitschrift »Putevi« (Wege, 1922-23). Das hier geschnittene, karikatureske Ballerinen-Motiv wurde auch für ein ebenfalls von Deroko entworfenes Veranstaltungsplakat verwendet. Der auf der Rückseite mit Buchdruck abgedruckten Besetzungsliste ist zu entnehmen, dass die Musik für das hier angekündigte »groteske Ballett« von Miloje Milojević stammt, einem maßgeblichen Vertreter der modernen Musik im damaligen Jugoslawien, der sich in der Tradition von Eric Satie und Igor Stravinsky sah. Seine Komposition wurde an diesem Abend von einer vierköpfigen Jazz-Band uraufgeführt. Als Librettisten werden mit Marko Ristić und Rastko Petrović zwei zentrale Proponenten des serbischen Surrealismus genannt. Es treten u.a. auf: ein Hypnotiseur, eine Ameise, die Sentimentalität, der Selbstmord und das Bewusstsein. Es fehlen Ss. 3 und 4 des ursprünglich einmal gefalteten, vierseitig bedruckten Blatts, die weitere Texte, aber keine weiteren Abb. enthalten. Oberkante mit Fehlstellen ohne Bild- und Textverlust und randseitig mit Klebestellen aufgrund einer früheren unsachgemäßen Entfernung aus einem Rahmen (?), sonst sehr sauberes Blatt dieses Rarissimums, das weltweit über Google, OCLC und KVK nur in den Sammlungen H. & H. R. und Marinko Sudac (Zagreb) nachweisbar ist, in letzterer ebenfalls nur als Fragment (Ss. 1-2 mit dem Holzschnitt). Vgl. Vlajnić-Grujić, Sanja, Hg.: The Works of the Composer Miloje Milojevic. Belgrad: 1998, S. 263; Jović, Bojan: Transmental Sheherezade. On the interwar avant-garde balls in Belgrade and Paris (Summary). In: Musikologija, no. 14 (2013), S. 109 u. S. 112 (Abb. des Plakats von Deroko).

        SPRING AND ALL

      [Paris]: Contact Publishing Co., 1923. First edition. Paperback. Very good. Blue paper wrappers lettered in black; small 8vo. 93 pages. A scarce book, one of 300 printed though the bibliographer notes "many of these may not have been distributed" [as many as half may have been confiscated by the Post Office]. One of the great Modernist works, one that paved a new road diverging from the work of Pound and Eliot, grounded in American colloquialisms that many others would follow. With the great poems (not named here, given names later) "Red Wheelbarrow", "To Elsie" ("The pure products of America/ go crazy") and the title poem ("The Road to the Contagious Hospital"), among others. Extremities toned, light fold to front cover, which is starting, gift plate to a College tipped to half-title, but a very good copy lacking the very rare glassine jacket. One of the few to surface in recent years, and superior to most. Wallace A7. The Dijon printer Maurice Darantiere printed this and other books for publisher Robert McAlmon including McAlmon's own A HASTY BUNCH; he also printed James Joyce's ULYSSES for Sylvia Beach.

        The God Seekers.

      Tel Aviv Hapoel Hatzair 1923 - Portfolio of 12 limited edition original woodcuts (52 x 35.5 cm). No. 46 out of 115. Original wax seal, signed and numbered by the artist; 2 title sheets and 2 contents sheets in Hebrew and English, printed in black and umber, 12 loose woodcut prints in original paper mounts printed in black. The complete portfolio of Rubin's woodcut prints. Reuven Rubin (born Zelicovici, 1893–1974) was one of the most prominent Israeli painters and Israel's first ambassador to Romania. He was one of the pioneers on the Eretz-Yisrael painting style. His art is said to be reflecting the light and spirituality of the Land of Israel. The Eretz-Yisrael painting school was a movement active in the Holy Land during 1920s and 1930s. These artists rebelled against the Bezalel school, which according to the rebels was too 'Galut-riddled' (Galut meaning exile or Diaspora in Hebrew). They were the voice of the Modern art in the Holy Land, who looked for new ways of artistic expression. The God Seekers combine images of Jewish tradition and mysticism with views of the Holy Land at the time of the Third Aliyah. Some of these motives reoccur later in Rubin's oils (such as The Dancers of Miron). Some Israeli art critics compared these images to German Expressionism and saw in them an expression of national and spiritual resurrection. In 1924 Rubin sent this album as a gift to Herbert Louis Samuel - the High Commissioner of Palestine at the time, who is also known to be the first practising Jew (although noted for his personal atheism), to serve as a Cabinet minister and to become the leader of the British Labour party. The album was sent back to Rubin with the explanation that the Commissioner does not sympathise this sort of art.

        Picturesque China. Architecture and Landscape. A Journey Through Twelve Provinces.

      London, T. Fisher Unwin, [1923]. Large 4to. Original red cloth with slightly spotted and repaired dust-wrappers; pp. xxvi, 288, 288 photogravure illustrations, captions n English, French, German, Spanish and Italian; cloth a little marked, occasional spotting to preliminary text; a good copy in the rarely seen dust-wrappers. First edition. Actually printed by Wasmuth in Germany and distributed with titles and text in different languages, this is a pretty comprehensive pictorial stock take of the architectural heritage of China, including fine landscapes, often with traditional carriages and travellers. 'The German architect and historian Ernst Boerschmann (1873-1949) spent his professional life engaged in research on traditional Chinese architecture ... When Ernst Boerschmann first arrived China in 1902 as a member of the German army he was already planning to undertake work on architecture' (Eduard Kögel in China Heritage Quarterly, online). - This is Boerschmann's main work, and an enduring record of traditional Chinese architecture, much of which has since been lost.

        Affairs and People of the Alexander I's epoch].

Contemporary blue sheep over cloth boards, gilt spine, small chip to lower board, corners slightly bumped. A very fresh example of this uncommon émigré edition that comprises selected articles by the famous Russian historian exploring the personality of Alexander I, his epoch and associates. Sergey Melgunov (1879 – 1956) was a Russian historian, publicist and politician known for his opposition to the Soviet government and his numerous works on the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the Russian Civil War. In the pre-Revolutionary years, Melgunov established a publishing house Zadruga where he published over 500 books and a journal Golos minuvshego ("The Voice of the Past"). After the Bolshevik October Revolution, he became an active opponent of Lenin's government and joined the anti-Soviet Union of Revival of Russia, which advocated an armed overthrow of the Bolshevik regime. He was arrested and sentenced to death in 1919, then reprieved, with the sentence commuted to imprisonment. Released in 1921, Melgunov eventually settled in Paris, where he continued his historical research and edited several émigré journals. The edition includes thirteen articles written within a period of 10 - 15 years before the revolution and covers the reign of Alexander I, analysis of personalities of the tsar, Rostopchin and Barclay de Tolly, the Great Patriotic War, and Russian society in the post-war years.

        Uncertainty and the Economics of Medical Care" in The American Economic Review 53 No 5, December 1963, pp. 941-973

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF KENNETH ARROW'S SEMINAL PAPER LAUNCHING THE FIELD OF MODERN HEALTH ECONOMICS. Arrow's paper is famous for many reasons - its "dazzling accuracy", its creation of an entirely new field of study, and also the skill and beauty with which it was written. "One is struck by the frequency with which a single sentence or paragraph opens up a concept, hypothesis, or relationship which will, years later, be expanded into a major subject of research" [for example the issue of 'trust' as it relates to medical care] (Fuchs, Health Affairs, March 8, 2017). To date, Arrow's paper remains "one of the most widely cited articles in the field of health economics" and is sometimes referred to as "the article that launched a thousand studies" (Savedoff, Public Health Classics, BWHO, Feb. 2004, 82). In 1963 Arrow was already a highly regarded economist; by the time of his death in early 2017 many considered him "the foremost economist of the second half of the 20th century" (Fuchs). In 1963, however, he had never written about the economics of health care. The Ford Foundation, attempting "to promote greater exchange between economists and other professions in the areas of health, education and welfare", extended an invitation to Arrow to apply his "pioneering research," on asymmetric information in markets to the issue of medical care (ibid). Arrow was fascinated by "the problems caused by asymmetric information in markets. In many transactions, one party (usually the seller) has more information about the product being sold than the other party. Asymmetric information creates incentives for the party with more information to cheat the party with less information; as a result, a number of market structures have developed, including warranties and third party authentication, which enable markets with asymmetric information to function" (Wikipedia). Before he could even begin to approach the task at hand, Arrow had to educate himself about health care and insurance - like many other economists, he had avoided the field. The paper Arrow ultimately wrote, this paper, did more than exceed the Ford Foundation's goals, it created the field of health economics and remains highly influential to this day. Prior to the article's appearance, economists had largely limited their research to descriptive and institutional studies. After Arrow's paper, the economics of health care became not just a respectable field of study, it was considered an "exciting" one (Fuchs). In this paper, Arrow characterized the differences between the healthcare market and normal competitive markets with regard to (1) the nature of demand - medical services are irregular and unpredictable (2) the expected behavior of the physician (3) product uncertainty (4) supply conditions (5) pricing practices. Arrow endorsed the view that 'the laissez-faire solution for medicine is intolerable' and that the delivery of health care deviates in fundamental ways from a normal free market, thus requiring government intervention to mitigate those deviations. Arrow wrote: "the operation of the medical-care industry and the efficacy with which it satisfies the needs of society differs from… a competitive model… If a competitive equilibrium exists at all, and if all commodities relevant to costs or utilities are in fact priced in the market, then the equilibrium is necessarily optimal" (Hastings, Kenneth Arrow on Healthcare Economics, AHEB, March 7, 2017). The Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel 1972 was awarded jointly to John R. Hicks and Kenneth J. Arrow "for their pioneering contributions to general economic equilibrium theory and welfare theory" (Nobel Prize Committee). CONDITION & DETAILS: 4to. Original wraps, continually paginated 941-1232. Bound in red wraps, slight rubbing and wear at the edges; the interior is clean and bright EXCEPT for the Arrow paper which has some light penciled underlining.
