        DIE NEUE KOLONIE. ROMAN

      Jena: Granula-Verlag, [1924].. Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-293 [294: printer's imprint] [295-296: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], original pictorial tan boards printed in red, green, blue and black, top edge stained brown. First edition, first printing. Also published as ALIS. DIE NEUE DEUTSCHE KOLONIE. DAS ENDE VON VERSAILLES. TECHNISCHER ZUKUNFTSROMAN (Friedeberg: Iserverlag Dresler & Co., 1924). Revenge against France is the theme central to the plot of Lämmel's novel in which ancient Atlantis is discovered and claimed by Germany. "Inführ's hero is Peter Hertenberger, a young man from Styria whose 'peasant blood' and affinity to the 'soil' are combined with a talent for all things technical. This leads to a crisis in which his identity as a true German Austrian prevails, leading him to embark for Berlin in order to 'achieve something greater for the German Volk' as an inventor. In Berlin he meets Ria Wimpffen, the daughter of the president of a 'German-American Stars League' that advocates the strengthening of German elements in the United States. While crossing the Atlantic on the way to visit the United States, Hartenberger discovers the sunken island of Atlantis with the help of a 'nucleon spectrascope' he has invented. He immediately decides to offer the riches certain to be found on Atlantis to the German Reich in order to improve both its financial situation and its military strength. When the French try to hinder his excavation efforts, he destroys their fleet with a ray gun capable of melting iron, thereby ushering in what is explicitly referred to as 'a new epoch in world history.' With the help of the riches discovered by Hartenberger, Germany becomes so powerful that France -- fearing a further military catastrophe -- withdraws its troops from the Rhineland and writes off any further reparations payments. As a result of all these miraculous events, the German population is swept up in a 'wave of healthy nationalism,' leading to Hartenberger's election to a ten-year term as 'national dictator' by the German parliament. During the course of these years, he acts as a peacemaker in the ever-smoldering conflict between the 'swastika' and the 'Soviet star,' annuls all the conditions of the infamous Treaty of Versailles, carries out restoration of Germany's former colonies, and finally leads Austria 'home into the Reich.' After accomplishing all this, however, he does not rest on his laurels but prepares for even more 'immense tasks.' as the last line of the novel so allusively puts it." - Hermand. Fisher, Fantasy and Politics: Visions of the Future in the Weimar Republic, pp. 107; 109. Hermand, Old Dreams of a New Reich: Volkish Utopias and National Socialism, p. 99. Lexikon 2, p. 171.

        t Schat der zielen, dat is: Het geheele leven ons Heeren Jesu Christi naer de vyer Evangelisten. Naer vervolgh des tijdts by een ghevoeght, in seven stucken verdeelt. Met seer schoon figuren verciert, gesneden door C. van Sichem, voor P. J. P[aets].Amsterdam, Pieter J[acobsz]. P[aets], 1648. With 686 woodcuts, many full-page, by Christoph van Sichem (many with his monogram), after his own designs and after drawings and paintings by Aldegrever, Goltzius, Dürer, Bloemaert, the Wierix brothers, Lucas van Leyden, Maarten van Heemskerck, Joannes Stradanus, etc. 17th-century vellum, manuscript title on smooth spine.

      - Hollstein XXVII, p. 51 (no. 52); Poortman, Bijbel en Prent 48; STCN (8 copies, incl. at least 2 incomplete); cf. Het Boek XIII (1924), pp. 195 ff. First and only edition of a Catholic devotional book on the life of Christ (in 5 numbered parts), the works of the Apostles, saints' lives, and religious emblems, perhaps the most richly illustrated woodcut book of the 17th century, with almost 700 woodcuts by Van Sichem, when one includes the 7 large ornamental woodcuts with putti, beasts, insects and flowers. Van Sichem may also have cut the numerous woodcut decorated initials with biblical figures, appearing mostly in the works of the Apostles. The book's title may have been influenced by an otherwise unrelated work published in the previous year, Den schat der zielen, an unillustrated translation of a work apparently first written in Catalan by Miguel Comalada, which saw later editions as well. The present work is built entirely around Van Sichem's extraordinary woodcuts. Christoffel van Sichem (ca. 1581-1658), the second and most important of four artists of that name, was one of the greatest woodblock cutters of the Dutch golden age. With owner's signature on endleaf. With the outer edge of the woodcut on the "Bosch der eremyten" title-page slightly shaved, a few mostly marginal tears, the largest in the gutter margin of 1 leaf repaired, slightly affecting the border, and a smaller one slightly affecting 1 woodcut, and a few leaves somewhat thumbed, smudged or spotted, but still generally in good condition. A famous and popular Catholic devotional work, with nearly 700 Van Sichem woodcuts.

        STUDYING PLAYGROUNDS AND SUMMER ACTIVITIES] Ploshchadki kak odin iz vidov letnikh zaniatii s det'mi [i.e. Playgrounds Like One of a Summer Activity for Children]

      Brokgauz-Efron, Leningrad 1924 - 106 pp. 23x16,5 cm. In original printed wrappers. Some tears of the extremities. Otherwise very good. Very rare. One of 4000 copies. A very attractive edition and a curious work on children's playgrounds in cities in early Soviet Russia, first of its kind. The book includes a short historical study about genesis and evolution of playgrounds in Russia. The author states that there is no established method of working with children at playgrounds - only elements borrowed from foreign methods like Froebel, Montessori, genetic and ancient greek method, method of central idea. Next chapters can be considered as recommendations for organizing children's playgrounds: how to choose a right place for it, what constructions it should have, getting animals («every playground should have something alive, starting from a dog and finishing with maybe a goat»), how to involve kids into making a garden, what kind of books should it have, how to arrange hiking during summer (to forrest, field, river, lake, village, et al.), how to watch nature («Let's start with the sun and suggest the children to come to the playground early in the morning to watch the sunrise and note where it rises, and to do the same in the evening and note where it sets. If we repeat it for two weeks from the same place, children will notice that points in which sun rises and sets are different»), how to throw a celebration and involve children in preparation, how to organize groups of interest («We know that children are neither patient nor skilled enough to deal with photographs in a proper way. Young photographer would always overexpose, or underexpose, or mess up with developer or fixer, so his work must be corrected by supervisor or more experienced fellow»). The author also gives estimated questions and subjects of talk with children, like duties (or wishes) for members of the playground, how to build day schedule for summer, parents meetings, importance of keeping statistics (examples of statistical tables and forms given in application in the end), playground's staff. Features and details of organizing playgrounds in a village are described separately. Examples of ads about playgrounds from the first years after the revolution presented in the end as well as list of recommended books, table with approximate needs in figures for the playground (materials, tools, etc.), a plan of summer activities for children of one Leningrad school in 1921 (equipment list, staff, schedule of interest groups, hiking trips, handmade work, games and organized groups of kids - 'keepers of toys', 'keepers of board games', ' janitors', 'group captains' etc.). Overall a great inside view of a idealist phenomenon which didn't last for long and transformed into other institutions. Worldcat locates no copies. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Die vorliegende Erzählung ist eine Art Autobiographie des Dichters, der seine Verse hier als Werk des imaginären Lyrikers Evgeny Ney publizierte. - Berühmtheit erlangte die kleine Veröffentlichung vor allem durch die prägnante Einbandgestaltung El Lissitzkys. So nutzte er zwei fotografische Porträtaufnahmen, die er 1924 von Hans Arp fertigte, und belichtete die Negative unterschiedlich, so dass die Profilaufnahme heller und die Frontalaufnahme dunkler geriet, schließlich fügte er beide zu einem Doppelporträt zusammen. Als Hintergrund verwandte er die Dada-Zeitschrift 391, auf den Hemdkragen ließ er den Namen des imaginären Dichters setzen. - Erschienen in einer Aulage von dreitausend Exemplaren. - Die häufig fehelnde Faltkarte hier mit Einriss, sonst hervorragend erhaltenes Exemplar. - Lissitzky-Küppers 121. - Kat.

Con aloni o fioriture ma certamente un buon esemplare. Assai raro trovare la raccolta completa di questa particolare e poco nota rivista letteraria. Fondata e diretta da Giuseppe Bottai, la testata romana si proponeva di stimolare una libera circolazione delle idee con una apertura alle letterature europee, avendo come obiettivo quello di attrarre alla politica culturale del regime anche il ceto intellettuale più ostile al fascismo. A tale scopo l'ambizioso periodico si circondò dei rappresentanti più illustri della cultura italiana di allora tra cui: Soffici (che firmò il programmatico articolo inaugurale), Pirandello, Saba, Cecchi, Savinio, Viani, Folgore, Flora, Bontempelli, Panzini, ecc. Negli appena 12 fascicoli pubblicati fecero in tempo ad uscire interventi di Ettore Lo Gatto (letteratura russa), di Ungaretti (letteratura francese), di Aurelio Palmieri (letteratura polacca), di Arturo Cromia (letteratura boema), ecc. L'impresa ebbe però vita breve (durò infatti appena 6 mesi) a causa del repentino mutamento del clima politico avvenuto in seguito al delitto Matteotti, Con lo stesso titolo “Lo Spettatore Italiano”, viene in seguito fondata a Roma una rivista mensile di carattere culturale, che uscirà regolarmente dal gennaio 1948 al dicembre 1956, diretta (dal 1952) da Elena Croce.

Issues present are: 1-24 (complete Volumes 1-6) , 26, 27, 29, 32-34, 36, 39, 41-42, 44-47, 49, 50 (final issue) . With founding leaflet and Register (index) to all the issues.

Founded in 1924, the Gesellschaft für die Jüdische Familien-Forschung ("Society for Jewish Family Research") began publishing its newsletter to connect Jewish genealogists and create a forum for their research. Its editor, the ophthalmologist Arthur Czellitzer (1871-1943) , claimed that the understanding of familial lineage is particularly important for the Jewish people. Without their own country or language, knowledge of family history would bring the Jews closer to their original roots, even if they had distanced themselves from the religious rituals of their ancestors. The work and publications of the Society was cut short by the Nazis who, tragically and ironically, used the research of the organization and the scholarship it had inspired, to identify, persecute and murder the Jews of Germany. Czellitzer himself was murdered in the death camp of Sobibor. SUBJECT(S) : Jews -- Germany -- Genealogy -- Periodicals. OCLC lists 24 holdings worldwide. Issue 50 is missing the bottom part of last two pages. A few issues (33, 46, 47, and 50) are toning and a bit fragile, with covers sometimes detached. On the whole at least 35 of the issues are in unusually good condition with little to no toning and very little wear. Overall very good- condition. (GENE-1-39A)

        Zapiski poeta. Povest? [Aufzeichnungen eines Dichters. Erzählung].

      Original-Ausgabe. - Selvinsky war einer der bedeutendsten Vertreter des literarischen Konstruktivismus. Die vorliegende Erzählung ist eine Art Autobiographie des Dichters, der seine Verse hier als Werk des imaginären Lyrikers Evgeny Ney publizierte. - Berühmtheit erlangte die kleine Veröffentlichung vor allem durch die prägnante Einbandgestaltung El Lissitzkys. So nutzte er zwei fotografische Porträtaufnahmen, die er 1924 von Hans Arp fertigte, und belichtete die Negative unterschiedlich, so dass die Profilaufnahme heller und die Frontalaufnahme dunkler geriet, schließlich fügte er beide zu einem Doppelporträt zusammen. Als Hintergrund verwandte er die Dada-Zeitschrift 391, auf den Hemdkragen ließ er den Namen des imaginären Dichters setzen. - Erschienen in einer Aulage von dreitausend Exemplaren. - Die häufig fehelnde Faltkarte hier mit Einriss, sonst hervorragend erhaltenes Exemplar. - Lissitzky-Küppers 121. - Kat. Sprengel Museum 218. - Bowlt/Hernad 73. - Kat. MoMa 750. - Andel, Avantgarde Pagedesign 252.

        DIE NEUE KOLONIE. ROMAN

      Jena: Granula-Verlag, [1924].. Octavo, pp. [1-6] 7-293 [294: printer's imprint] [295-296: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], original pictorial tan boards printed in red, green, blue and black, top edge stained brown. First edition, first printing. Also published as ALIS. DIE NEUE DEUTSCHE KOLONIE. DAS ENDE VON VERSAILLES. TECHNISCHER ZUKUNFTSROMAN (Friedeberg: Iserverlag Dresler & Co., 1924). Revenge against France is the theme central to the plot of Lämmel's novel in which ancient Atlantis is discovered and claimed by Germany. "Inführ's hero is Peter Hertenberger, a young man from Styria whose 'peasant blood' and affinity to the 'soil' are combined with a talent for all things technical. This leads to a crisis in which his identity as a true German Austrian prevails, leading him to embark for Berlin in order to 'achieve something greater for the German Volk' as an inventor. In Berlin he meets Ria Wimpffen, the daughter of the president of a 'German-American Stars League' that advocates the strengthening of German elements in the United States. While crossing the Atlantic on the way to visit the United States, Hartenberger discovers the sunken island of Atlantis with the help of a 'nucleon spectrascope' he has invented. He immediately decides to offer the riches certain to be found on Atlantis to the German Reich in order to improve both its financial situation and its military strength. When the French try to hinder his excavation efforts, he destroys their fleet with a ray gun capable of melting iron, thereby ushering in what is explicitly referred to as 'a new epoch in world history.' With the help of the riches discovered by Hartenberger, Germany becomes so powerful that France -- fearing a further military catastrophe -- withdraws its troops from the Rhineland and writes off any further reparations payments. As a result of all these miraculous events, the German population is swept up in a 'wave of healthy nationalism,' leading to Hartenberger's election to a ten-year term as 'national dictator' by the German parliament. During the course of these years, he acts as a peacemaker in the ever-smoldering conflict between the 'swastika' and the 'Soviet star,' annuls all the conditions of the infamous Treaty of Versailles, carries out restoration of Germany's former colonies, and finally leads Austria 'home into the Reich.' After accomplishing all this, however, he does not rest on his laurels but prepares for even more 'immense tasks.' as the last line of the novel so allusively puts it." - Hermand.
