        Typed letter signed "Alban" to composer Paul von Klenau.

      . 1 pg. Ca. 212 x 136 mm. Dated Trahütten, September 23, [19]29. Signed in sepia ink. On stationery with "Trahütten in Steiermark Post: Deutsch- Landsberg via Graz" typed in red ink at head. Several small corrections, presumably in the composer's own hand. In German (with translation). Berg reacts to Klenau's announcement to perform the Three Fragments from Wozzeck (in an unspecified location). He encloses the sung text of the fragments (enclosure not included) and expresses his wish to meet Klenau again in Vienna within the next season, when Wozzeck will be staged there. "This, my dear Paul, is a big surprise! And it doubly pleases me that you are going to do the Fragments from Wozzeck, that is, not only as a fact, but also because of the service of friendship that you are doing for me... Strangely, just today, browsing through old sheet music, I found a program leaf with the texts of the Fragments that you may perhaps make good use of for the performance. Maybe such a program-insert would be welcome to an audience that cannot really be informed about Wozzeck... For this season I will have - listen and marvel (I myself marvel most of all) - eight to ten stages for Wozzeck. Even Vienna among them!... " Creased at fold; very light wear. Together with the original autograph envelope. Ca. 112 x 144 mm. Postmarked September 23, [19]29. With the names and addresses of Klenau and Berg typed, respectively, on upper and lower panels. Minor tearing, soiling, and wear.. Three Fragments from Wozzeck, for soprano and orchestra, was composed upon the insistence of conductor Hermann Scherchen, who hoped to direct a concert suite of pieces from Berg's 1925 opera, Wozzeck. Scherchen premiered the Fragments in Frankfurt on June 11, 1924. Paul von Klenau (1883-1946) was a Danish composer of German descent who was trained in Germany and spent most of his creative life there. From the 1920s, he was close to the Schönberg circle and adopted its dodecaphonic techniques. His last completed work, the symphony, received its premiere in Copenhagen in March 2014, almost seventy years after its composition.

        51 photographs by expedition photographer W. Ankersen.

      - 51 original photographs, each approx. 88 x 115mm., all inkstamped to verso with the expedition name and the separate inkstamp of Dr. W. Ankersen, many also bearing the inkstamp of expedition leader Dr. Max Grotewahl and/or the inkstamp of the Archiv für Polarforschung, all numbered variously several times in ink or by hand, 9 of them identified by hand to verso; in very good and unfaded condition. The Deutsche Spitzbergen Expedition of 1925 was a 4-man expedition led by Max Grotewahl, with Walter Ankersen (photographer), Fritz Biller (cinematographer), and Rudolf Jupitz (geologist and biologist). The four men spent the period from mid-July to early Septetmber exploring the Magdalena Bay region in north west Spitsbergen. They crossed three new passes and ascended six peaks for the first time. The expedition travelled back from Spitsbergen aboard S.M.S. Zieten, then under the command of Alfred Ritscher. The present collection of photographs is the work of the the expedition photographer Ankersen, but seems to derive from Grotewahl&#146;s archives in Kiel. All but one, a photograph showing a map of the expedition&#146;s routes, show field images from the expedition, including high-level shots taken during their climbs, mountain views, images of the various camps, an image of the cruise ship that carried the expedition to Spitsbergen, and an image of the Zieten which brought it back. The photographs appear never to have been published.

        Calligraphic manuscript with original watercolor, being a lengthy passage from Knut Hamsun's "Pan: From the papers of Lieutenant Thomas Glahn" (in German)

      Frankfurt, 1925. CALLIGRAPHIC MANUSCRIPT ON PAPER: 10 pages, including an ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR BY THE ARTIST, AND BOUND BY HER. Written on Flinsche Paper (Frankfurt). Large "modernist" watercolor illustration on first leaf (evidence of deep pencil scratch in outer margin), on the recto a manuscript dedication (dated June 1925) being a six-line poem by Nietzsche entitled "Ecce Homo" (the inscription is signed by "Stefan"). Bound in original beige linen over boards (worn and slightly stained). Overall in good antiquarian condition An accomplished calligraphic manuscript, presenting a poignant passage from Knut Hamsun's "Pan: from the papers of Lieutenant Thomas Glahn" (Chapter XXIII). The manuscript was written and bound by a young Frankfurt artist who appears to have faded into almost complete obscurity; we believe that the artist was Elisabeth Louise Satori, born in Oberrad (Frankfurt) in 1907. She would have been 18 years of age at the time the present manuscript was written. The Frankfurt Institut fur Stadtgeschichte very kindly supplied us with information that her father was Heinrich Satori (born in Wiesbaden in 1877) and her mother was Elisabeth, nee Kircher (born in Frankfurt in 1886). They married in 1905 and resided in Oberrad, a suburb of Frankfurt, where they raised a family of two children: Heinrich Jr. (born 1905) and Elisabeth Louise. In the 1951 Frankfurt City Directory, the name of Heinrich Satori (Junior), a gardener, appears alongside that of Elisabeth (Louise) Satori, residing at the same address. The manuscript dedication is Nietzsche's 6-line 'Ecce Homo': "Ja, ich weiss woher ich stamme! / Ungesattigt gleich der Flamme, / Glhe und verzehr ich mich, / Licht wird alles was ich fasse, / Kohle alles was ich lasse: / Flamme bin ich sicherlich!" / See also the Werdenfelser Kunstlerlexikon (Kunsterlexikon des Werdenfelser Landes) published online by Antiquariat Benkert.

        THE NEW NEGRO

      Albert and Charles Boni, New York 1925 - Edited by Alain Locke, the first African-American Rhodes Scholar and the real philosophical architect of the Harlem Renaissance, the list of contibutors to this anthology reads like a "Who's Who" of that important movement. The New Negro is a landmark book of African American literature, and this copy is signed by the great lights: Alain Locke himself, along with W. E. B. DuBois, James Weldon Johnson, and Walter White all signed on the half-title page. A remarkable monument to 20th century African-American literature.
