        DER ZAUBERBERG [THE MAGIC MOUNTAIN]

      Berlin:: S. Fischer Verlag,, 1924.. Berlin:: S. Fischer Verlag,. 1924. First edition. Widely considered to be one of the most influential works of 20th century German literature. Mann began writing this work in 1912 as a much shorter narrative, revisiting "Death in Venice"--a novella that he was then preparing for publication--in a more comic manner. The work reflected his experiences and impressions during a period when his wife, who was suffering from a lung complaint, was confined to Dr. Friedrich Jessen's Waldsanatorium in Davos, Switzerland for several months. In May and June 1912 Mann visited her and became acquainted with the team of doctors who were treating her in this cosmopolitan institution. According to Mann, in the afterword that was later included in the English translation, this stay became the foundation of the opening chapter (Arrival) of the completed novel. The outbreak of the First World War interrupted work on the book. The conflict and its aftermath led the author to undertake a major re-examination of European society, including the sources of the willful, perverse destructiveness displayed by much of civilised humanity. He was also drawn to speculate about more general questions surrounding personal attitudes to life, health, illness, sexuality and mortality. Given this, Mann felt compelled to radically revise and expand the pre-war text before completing it in 1924. It wasn't published in English until 1927. Two volumes. The deluxe limited issue; number 142 of 150 copies numbered and SIGNED by the author. Publisher's full black calf with labels and gilt decorated spines; top edges gilt. Some aging with minor discoloration of leather in a few spots. Internally very clean with no foxing. Professionally rebacked with the original spines laid down.

        Plakat - Mascotte. Buchdruck.

      1924. 100 x 70 cm, Gefalzt m. zwei kleinen Fehlstellen am Rand (kein Textverlust) Preis in CHF: 990. Typographisches Plakat des heute noch existierenden, legendären Nachtclubs in Zürich. Mascotte Direction. Otto Neumann-Hofer. Programm vom 16.-bis 31. August 1924. Paul Förster, Improvisator in sechs Sprachen; Otto Adolf Albers, Vortrag und Conference; La plus grande vedette des Paris - Nina Myral et Robert Burnier dans leur scetch musical: " Oh Cheri oh! Cherie"; Maria et Marta Doell neue expressionistische Tänze; Lola Abeck Sängerin; Nell Marco, Vortrags-Künstler; Arturo Cuartero, Tenor lirico espanol; 8 - 12 Uhr Coso-Bar Orchester " Phönix" Zürich bis 11 Uhr. Nina Myral (1884 - 1975) Sängern und Filmschauspielerin. Das heutige Mascotte ist einer der ältesten "Clubs" der Schweiz und daher auch eng mit der Geschichte des berühmten Corso-Hauses und somit auch mit der kulturellen Geschichte Zürichs verbunden.Das Corso-Haus beim Bellevue wurde zur Zeit der Jahrhundertwende gebaut, das Variete eröffnete im April 1900 an zentraler Lage seinen Betrieb. Erst gedacht als Treffpunkt und Clublokal von Vereinen und Zünften wurden schon damals bald neben Theater und allerlei Kleinkunst erste Filme vorgeführt. Schon 1916 wurde ein kleiner Nebensaal des Theaters "Palais Mascotte" genannt. In den zwanziger und dreissiger Jahren traten die bekanntesten Artisten aus Europa und Übersee im Corso auf, unter Ihnen Namen wie Josephine Baker oder der junge Louis Armstrong. Das Innere wurde 1934 total umgebaut. Damals präsentierte sich das Mascotte noch als Wiener Cafe, ohne den oberen Stock in sehr grosszügigem Art Deco Gewand, mit eleganten Zebra-Design-Sesseln, edlem Parkett, dem berühmten Wandbild von Max Ernst (heute im Kunsthaus zu bewundern) und in äusserst schlichtem weiss. Max Bill gestaltete den heute noch vorhandenen Corso-Schriftzug auf dem Dach. Die fünfziger und sechziger Jahre waren eine Zeit der Big Band Tanzmusik und Live-Konzerte, gefolgt von den ersten Schweizer Go Go Girls. Nach einer Renovation wurde es um 1970 von der Stadt erworben und unter Schutz gestellt. Samy Davis Jr., Hazy Osterwald oder auch Pepe Lienhard traten im "Mascotte" auf - Letzterer übernahm die Bar 1977 zusammen mit Udo Jürgens und Freddy Burger zu einer Zeit als die ersten Disco's entstanden. Anfangs der Achtzigern war ihr "Mascotte" mit erstem Laser-Licht der Schweiz mit dem später folgenden "Roxy" die unbestritten beliebteste Disco der Stadt. Auch damals hatte man stets Besuch von Stars und Sternchen der nationalen und internationalen Show-Scene...wie Mötley Crue oder Falco. Leider konnte man mit der stets wachsenden Konkurrenz in der Folge nicht mehr mithalten und verschwand im Mittelmass.1995 führte die Eröffnung des Klubs "Cafe Grössenwahn" zu kurzfristig guten Zahlen aber leider auch zum vorläufigen Ende der glamourösen Ära. 1997 eröffnete der aufwendig eingerichtete Club Paradise von Coiffeur Valentino. Bereits ein Jahr später wurde aus dem Lokal wiederum das "Mascotte" - nun ein gesichtsloser Klub, der in Zürichs umtriebigem Nachtleben in Vergessenheit geriet. Seit Februar 2004 ist man unter neuer Führung junger Club- und Gastro-Unternehmer nach erfolgreich absolviertem Umbau wieder auf gutem Weg. Mit breitgefächertem Club- und Musik-Programm, internationalen und nationalen Live-Konzerten& DJS, Show-Cases, Lesungen und sonstigen kulturellen Anlässen spricht man wieder ein interessiertes, urbanes Publikum an und knüpft ohne Zweifel wieder an den einstigen Erfolg und Glamour des so geschichtsträchtigen Hauses an.

        Der Wahlesel rührt sich. Entwurfszeichnung in Blei. 1924. 59,5 x 46,0 cm.

      . . Die vorliegende, lt. Jentsch 1924 entstandene Zeichnung fand 1928 als Entwurf für die Illustration zu Oskar Kanehls 'Wahlesel-Lied', in der Gedichtsammlung 'Straße frei' erschienen, Verwendung (Raabe/Hannich-B. 150.4). Weiterhin ließ Franz Pfemfert diese für ihn programmatische Illustration auf dem Titelblatt der 'Aktion' XVIII. Jahrg., Heft 2/3 abdrucken. - Rückseitig mit dem Nachlassstempel und der Nachlassnummer '4-143-5'. - Oberflächlich betrachtet handelt es sich um eine für Grosz typische Zeichnung mit gesellschaftskritischem Inhalt, jedoch, sieht man genauer hin, ist diese Skizze eher ungewöhnlich. Thematisiert wird hierin nicht gesellschaftlicher Antagonismus, deutscher Militarismus und kleinbürgerliche Spießigkeit. Diese Arbeit hat das politische Konzept des rätekommunistischen Antiparlamentarismus, in Opposition zur KPD nach dem Heidelberger Parteitag, wie es Oskar Kanehl und Franz Pfemfert vertraten, zur Grundlage. Die Ikonographie des 'Wahlesels' findet sich in zahlreichen Text- und Bildbeiträgen der 'Aktion' nach 1919; es ist wohl das wichtigste Motiv linkskommunistischer Publikationen in der Zeit der Weimarer Republik. Der 'Wahlesel' unterwirft sich für Kanehl und Pfemfert nicht nur einer zentral vorgegebenen Parteidoktrin, er verhält sich mit seiner Stimmenabgabe ebenso affirmativ zur bestehenden Ordnung und enthält sich damit selbst die Partizipation an Entscheidungsprozessen vor. Für Grosz war diese Auseinandersetzung innerhalb der Linken, zumindest was seine Zeichnungen anbelangt, kein Thema. So stellt sich einerseits die Frage, inwieweit Kanehl vielleicht direkten Einfluss auf auf die Arbeit an der vorliegenden Zeichnung genommen hat, vier Jahre vor ihrer Veröffentlichung, und andererseits, ob die Zeichnung im Zusammenhang mit Grosz' 1923 erfolgtem Austritt aus der KPD zu sehen ist. - Gut erhaltenes Blatt. - Dazu: Die Aktion. XVIII. Jahrg., Heft 2/3. Für unsere Schweizer Kunden: Konto in der Schweiz vorhanden

        Ulysses.

      Paris, Shakespeare and Company (printed for Sylvia Beach by Maurice Darantiere at Dijon, France), (January) 1924.. 4to. (8), 736 pp. (including 4 pages of "Ulysses Additional Corrections" at end). Contemp. blue cloth bound by Maltby of Oxford, giltstamped leather label to spine, with the original white wrappers printed in blue bound within.. First edition, fourth printing. One of only two known signed and inscribed copies of this printing of "Ulysses" (the other being to Alys Eyre Macklin), with Joyce's autograph inscription in black ink on the preliminary blank: "To / Edward Irvine Halliday / James Joyce / Paris / 31. iii. [1]924". The painter Edward Halliday (1902-84) was a student at the Royal College of Art and attending life classes on a travel scholarship at the Academie Colarossi in Paris when Joyce inscribed this copy of Ulysses for him. His early murals "demonstrate the classical basis of his academic training but also have a strangely dream-like atmosphere and complex narrative that is personal to Halliday" (Ann Compton, ODNB). He later went on to become a successful portrait-painter, with the Queen and Winston Churchill among his subjects, as well as having a career in broadcasting and working on "black" wartime propaganda with Sefton Delmer. - Insignificant wear to boards, wrappers slightly dust-marked. Paper lightly browned overall and brittle as usual; a very few marginal tears and chips; still a fine example of this fragile book. The rich blue colour of the wrappers, liable to discoloration, is well preserved within the contemporary cloth boards. Widely recognized as the key book of 20th-century English literature, "Ulysses" is not only the author's most famous work, but counts among the principal works in the modernist canon. - Slocum/Cahoon A17 note, p. 25.

Sir Frank William Brangwyn RA RWS RBA (12 May 1867 - 11 June 1956) was an Anglo-Welsh artist, painter, water colourist, virtuoso engraver and illustrator, and progressive designer. He was born in Bruges, Belgium, where his father moved after winning a competition organised by the Belgian Guild of St Thomas and St Luke to design a parish church. His forenames were registered as Guillaume Francois. In 1874 the family moved back to the United Kingdom. In 1896, he married Lucy Ray, who died in 1924. They had no children. He had an affair with Ellen Kate Chesterfield, which produced a son, James Barron Chesterfield-Brangwyn, born 1885 (calculated) in Mevagissey, Cornwall, England. James the son emigrated to Australia in 1909 being sent out to work on a farm in Townsville, Queensland and later moving to Brisbane. He leased Temple Lodge, 51 Queen Caroline Street, Hammersmith from 1900 to 1937/38 and bought The Jointure, Ditchling, Sussex in 1918. He was knighted in 1941. He died on 11 June 1956 at his home in Sussex. In 1936 Brangwyn presented Bruges with over 400 works, now in the Arents House Museum. In return the King of Belgium made Brangwyn Grand Officer of the Order of Leopold II, and Bruges made him Citoyen d'Honneur de Bruges (only the third time the award had been given). Frank Brangwyn received some artistic training, probably from his father, and later from Arthur Heygate Mackmurdo and in the workshops of William Morris, but he was largely an autodidact without a formal artistic education. When, at the age of seventeen, one of his paintings was accepted at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, he was strengthened in his conviction to become an artist. Initially he painted traditional subjects about the sea and life on the seas. His canvas, Funeral At Sea (1890) won a medal of the 3rd class at the 1891 Paris Salon. The limited palette in this painting is typical of his Newlyn period (although he was not officially a Newlyn artist). By the late 19th century Orientalism had become a favoured theme for many painters. Soon Brangwyn was attracted by the light and the bright colours of these southern countries. He travelled to Istanbul and the Black Sea, working as a deck hand for his passage. He made many paintings and drawings, particularly of Spain, Morocco, Egypt, Turkey. This lightened his palette, a change that initially did not find critical favor. He continued his travels to different parts of Africa, including South Africa. In 1895, the Parisian art dealer Siegfried Bing commissioned Brangwyn to decorate the exterior of his Galerie L'Art Nouveau, and encouraged Brangwyn into new avenues: murals, tapestry, carpet designs, posters, and designs for stained glass to be produced by Louis Comfort Tiffany. For his austere but decorative designs he was recognized by continental and US critics as a prominent artist, while British critics were puzzled as how to evaluate him. In 1908 Brangwyn was commissioned to paint the apse of St Aidan's Church, Leeds, but after it was realised that the air pollution would damage the paint, it was agreed he should work in glass mosaic. The mosaic (using Rust's vitreous mosaic) was completed in 1916. It covers the whole apse, and shows the life of St Aidan. Other commissions included murals for the Great Hall of the Worshipful Company of Skinners, London (1901-1909), the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, San Francisco, 1915 (now in the Herbst Theatre, Veteran's Building Auditorium, San Francisco), a Lunette for Cuyahoga County Courthouse, Cleveland, Ohio (1911-1915), the Manitoba Legislative Building, Winnipeg (1918-1921), the Chapel, Christ's Hospital School, Horsham (1912-1923), and the Missouri State Capitol, Jefferson City (1915-1925). Although Brangwyn produced over 80 poster designs during the First World War, he was not an official war artist. His grim poster of a Tommy bayoneting an enemy soldier ("Put Strength in the Final Blow: Buy War Bonds") caused deep offence in both Britain and Germany. The Kaiser himself is said to have put a price on Brangwyn's head after seeing the image. Brangwyn is best known for the British Empire Panels (1925-1932), 16 large works that cover 3,000 sq ft (280 m2). These were originally intended for the Royal Gallery at the House of Lords at Westminster, but the House of Lords refused them because they were "too colourful and lively" for the location. They are now housed in the Brangwyn Hall, Swansea. In 1925-1926, he served as President of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists. Along with Diego Rivera and Josep Maria Sert, he was chosen by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. to decorate the concourse of the RCA Building in New York City (1930-34) with murals. A sequence of large murals on canvas (originally from Horton House, Northamptonshire) is held by the Dunedin Public Art Gallery Dunedin, New Zealand. He was also chosen to decorate the 1st class dining room of the Canadian Pacific liner, RMS Empress of Britain (1930-1931)]. Brangwyn was an artistic jack-of-all-trades. As well as paintings and drawings, he produced designs for stained glass, furniture, ceramics, table glassware, buildings and interiors, was a lithographer and woodcutter and was an illustrator of books. In 1952 Clifford Musgrave estimated that Brangwyn had produced over 12,000 works. He collaborated with Japanese Urushibara Mokuchu on a series of woodblock prints. Brangwyn's mural commissions would cover over 22,000 sq ft (2,000 m2) of canvas, he painted over 1,000 oils, over 660 mixed media works (watercolours, gouache), over 500 etchings, about 400 wood engravings and woodcuts, 280 lithographs, 40 architectural and interior designs, 230 designs for furniture, and 20 stained glass panels and windows. Towards the end of his life, Brangwyn donated many of his own and other artworks to museums and galleries in Britain and Europe. In 1944, he recovered and secured designs by Frederic Shields for the Chapel of the Ascension built by Herbert Horne, which was destroyed in 1940 during the London Blitz. In 1950, one of his last works provided illustrations for the book Sixty Years of Yachts by Herbert Julyan, a good friend. (Wikipedia)

Homer - In the Western classical tradition, Homer is the author of the "Iliad" and the "Odyssey," and is revered as the greatest ancient Greek epic poet. These epics lie at the beginning of the Western canon of literature, and have had an enormous influence on the history of literature. When he lived is controversial. Herodotus estimates that Homer lived 400 years before Herodotus' own time, which would place him at around 850 BC; while other ancient sources claim that he lived much nearer to the supposed time of the Trojan War, in the early 12th century BC. For modern scholars "the date of Homer" refers not to an individual, but to the period when the epics were created. The consensus is that "the Iliad and the Odyssey date from around the 8th century BC, the Iliad being composed before the Odyssey, perhaps by some decades," i. E. Earlier than Hesiod, the Iliad being the oldest work of Western literature. Over the past few decades, some scholars have argued for a 7th century BC date. Some of those who argue that the Homeric poems developed gradually over a long period of time give an even later date for the composition of the poems; according to Gregory Nagy for example, they only became fixed texts in the 6th century BC. The question of the historicity of Homer the individual is known as the "Homeric question"; there is no reliable biographical information handed down from classical antiquity. The poems are generally seen as the culmination of many generations of oral story-telling, in a tradition with a well-developed formulaic system of poetic composition. Some scholars, such as Martin West, claim that "Homer" is "not the name of a historical poet, but a fictitious or constructed name." The formative influence played by the Homeric epics in shaping Greek culture was widely recognized, and Homer was described as the teacher of Greece. Homer's works, which are about fifty percent speeches, provided models in persuasive speaking and writing that were emulated throughout the ancient and medieval Greek worlds. Fragments of Homer account for about half of all ancient Greek papyrus finds. Translor: Andrew Lang - Andrew Lang was a Scots poet, novelist, literary critic, and contributor to the field of anthropology. He is best known as a collector of folk and fairy tales. The Andrew Lang lectures at the University of St Andrews are named after him. , S. H. Butcher; 0 [Attributes: Hard Cover]
