        JARDINS ENCHANTÉS Un Romancero.

      Paris: Louis Conard 1925. First edition; penned presentation inscription from the author to "Madame de Berèze" dated 1930 on half-title. Ferdinand Bac, a German native who migrated to Paris in the nineteenth century, was a successful painter, author and book illustrator who later settled at Menton on the French Riviera. He designed several gardens for the unique semi-tropical mountains of that region, most notably Les Colombières. His imaginative and romantic Mediterranean gardens, both real and imaginary, influenced artists such as the architect and garden designer, Louis Barragan. Barragan was inspired, in particular, by the "enchanted" Hispano-Moorish gardens described in JARDINS ENCHANTÉS, a few of which had actually been built, while most were pure fantasy. These are depicted in a series of evocative paintings reproduced here in color. The text is a story, or "romancero," written to accompany the illustrations. 4to (27.5 x 22 cm); viii + 72 pp. text with printed decorative borders + 36 color plates. Recently bound in marbled paper over boards with gilt titled and dated leather spine; original paper wraps bound in, some soiling to original wraps, heavier on rear cover; some scattered foxing internally, heavier on preliminaries. .

        Sigmund Freud signed and dedicated book with a scarce association, to fellow psychoanalyst Oskar Pfister

      n.p., December 2, 1925. 6.25" x 9". "Sigmund Freud signed first offprint edition of his autobiography, ""Die Medizin Der Gegenwart in Selbstdarstellungen"" (The medicine of the present - in self representations) inscribed to fellow psychoanalyst Oskar Pfister. Published by Felix Meiner, 1925, Germany. First offprint edition in green wraps, 6.25"" x 9"". Marked ''Nicht im Handel'' (''not for sale'') and ''Sonderdruck'' (''offprint''). Signed, inscribed, and dated on the front wraps by Sigmund Freud to Pfister, ""Seimen lieben/O. Pfister/Freud/12.2.25"" (translated as To his dear friend) A second inscription from Oskar Pfister to Professor R. Brandt located on the fly leaf ""Seimen lieben Freunde/Prof. R. Brandt/In herzlicher Gesinnung"" (translated as To his dear friend … with warm sentiments). The book is protected in a custom clamshell case, with the front wrap design repeating on the front of the clamshell, and leather quarter cloth with raised bands on the spine, with a touch of slight rubbing to the front. The book is neatly nestled in the tray case and well protected.A rare signed and dedicated book by Sigmund Freud with fantastic associations. Sigmund Freud signed the book to Oskar Pfister, who in turn gifted the book 30 years later with a warm inscription to Professor R. Brant. Pfister and Freud both studied psychoanalysis, although Freud did so in a professional capacity, Pfister was more of a ""lay"" psychoanalyst. As an early associate of Freud, Pfister studied theology, philosophy and psychoanalysis with extensive interest in Freud's concepts of the Oedipus Complex, castration anxiety and Transference ( Transference is a phenomenon characterized by unconscious redirection of feelings from one person to another. One definition of transference is ""the inappropriate repetition in the present of a relationship that was important in a person's childhood) . Pfister and Freud shared numerous letters on these subjects which spanned over 30 years until Freud's death in 1939. In turn, Professor Brandt was a dear friend of Pfister's, who also actively researched, analyzed and questioned Freud's theories during the mid 1950's while writing his thesis as a Doctor of Clinical Psychology at the University of Ottawa, Canada. Brandt was highly analytical having both studied and extensively critiqued Freud for many years noting that ""Perhaps in no other field except religion has there been so much disagreement among such competent thinkers as there is in psychoanalysis"". And therein lies the common thread and perpetual philosophical debate between the three individuals which spanned over many decades.A fine condition book, with an extremely scarce signature by Sigmund Freud, with several wonderful and unique associations."

        Ms. Brief mit eigenh. U. ("Retschke"). Paris, [um 1925].

      1925. 1 S. Gr.-4to. Die Verso-Seite mit gedr. Briefkopf "Die Weltbühne [...] Paris". Typischer Scherzbrief, möglicherweise an Hermann Budzislawski (1901-1978): "Sehr verehrter Herr Leidensgenosse, höre soehmt, dass Ihnen Ihre werte Frau Frau durchgegangen ist und gratuliere I[h]nen herzlichst. Möchte gleichzeitig mal anfragen, ob Sie gewillt sind, unserm | Reichsbund deutscher Hahnreie | beizutreten, (Ehrenprotektorat: Seine Majestät Wilhelm II) - Jahresbeitrag 69 M. Der RDH hat es sich zum Ziele gesetzt, die Belange der deutschen Reie und Hahnreie im Reichstag zu vertreten und für ihre standesgemässe Behandlung den erbitterten Kampf zu führen, der uns schon immer gefehlt hat. Wir sind ein armes Volk und müssen uns eben nach dem Dawes-Plan strecken - die alte, deutsche Tüchtigkeit hats aber noch immer geschafft, und da[r]um bitten wir auch Sie, sehr geehrter Herr Professor, ihre Rei-schaft auf uns übertragen zu wollen. Unserer Klubdiener putzt den Mitgliedern jeden Morgen die Hörner. Mit deutschem Hussa-Hoho! [...]". - Tucholsky lebte vom Frühjahr 1924 bis 1930 als Auslandskorrespondent in Frankreich, zunächst in Paris. Dort schrieb er im Herbst 1925 auch über das Wort "Hahnrei": "'Hahnrei' ist ein Wort, für das selbst der alles wissende Doktor Wasserzieher in seinem 'Ableitenden Wörterbuch der deutschen Sprache' keine Erklärung gibt und das ein gesunder Mensch wohl nur ausspricht, wenn man ihn fragt, was 'cocu' auf deutsch heißt" (Peter Panter, Noch einmal französische Witze, in: Vossische Zeitung, 10. 9. 1925; wieder in: Lerne Lachen [...]). - "Der Brief ist von Tucholsky. Es passt einfach zu seinem Stil, von diesen Scherzbriefen haben wir bereits etliche" (frdl. Mitteilung von U. von Bülow, DLA Marbach, Handschriftenabt.). - In der neuen Tucholsky-Gesamtausgabe offenbar nur in den Anmerkungen gedruckt.

One of the finest illustrated editions of the Brothers Grimm; "Nielsen is a brilliant colourist and a highly decorative illustrator, his works, formed into frieze-like patterns, are closest to Persian or Middle-Eastern designs and therefore akin to Leon Bakst or Edmund Dulac" (Houfe, The Dictionary of 19th Century Book Illustrators and Caricaturists, p. 243).

Sergeant became one of the original contributors to THE NEW REPUBLIC and was sent by the magazine to Paris in 1917 to cover the war.

November 1954 in Ebersteinburg bei Baden-Baden), deutscher Dirigent und Komponist. "Sehr geehrter Herr Kollege! Ich danke Ihnen vielmals für Ihre Zeilen, die sich auf des Werk von Kletzki beziehen [.] Sehr bedaure ich im Interesse von Berlin, dass Sie Anzahl und Charakter Ihrer Konzerte dortselbst beschränkt haben. Es ist schon traurig genug für Berlin, dass Unsachlichkeit und kaltschnäuziges Virtuosentum sich dort (in letzter Zeit) so in den Vordergrund drängen. Mit herzlichen Grüssen stets Ihr ergebener Wilhelm Furtwängler". Beigelegt Ersttagsbrief anläßlich der Eröffnung der Berliner Festwochen 1955. Furtwängler

L'opera uscì anche in francese ed in inglese (Les merveilles du ski, The wonders of ski-ing). Arnold Fanck, regista tedesco studioso di scienze naturali e amante della montagna, aveva diretto nel 1920 in collaborazione con l'etnologo Tauern un film dallo stesso titolo, nel quale unici protagonisti erano lo sci e la montagna: "Prodigi dello sci". Fu il pioniere di questo genere cinematografico, all'epoca di notevole difficoltà tecnica. il film di montagna. Leni Riefenstahl ne rimase affascinata e volle partecipare come attrice al successivo, "La montagna sacra"; Fanck fu il produttore del film "La luce blu" diretto dalla Riefenstahl, che attirò l'attenzione di Adolf Hitler, consacrandola come regista ufficiale del Nazismo, sino al celebre film sulle Olimpiadi di Berlino. Bellissimo volume, di estremo interesse per lo sci e la cinematografia, nelle loro fasi ponieristiche. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      1925. Altogether (2+4+2 =) 8 pp. on 4 ff. 4to and 8vo. Photograph dimensions 74 x 100 mm. Friendly correspondence with a Natasha who at that time was apparently close to Ehrenfest's wife Tatjana. Ehrenfest promises to write to both of them, goes on to develop some thoughts on mechanics and physics, and wants them to ask Joffe, Frenkel, Bursian, Krutkov, and Friedmann in case they do not understand what he has written. He encourages Natasha not to become frustrated by her own scientific work , since "everyone who has become involved with science faces the same problems [...] You should see how Bohr and Einstein were tormented [...]" (transl.). - The picture shows Ehrenfest with some of his students.
