        Impressive 1926 Central Committee-approved bust of the Russian revolutionary

      Moscow, Russia, 1926. 24.25" x 15.5" x12". "Original bronze bust of Lenin, done by well-known sculptor Sergei Merkurov. Bust measures 24.25˝ tall, 15.5˝ wide, and 12˝ deep, weighs approximately 150 pounds, and was cast from metal taken from church bells. This particular statue was made at the Gosizdat factory in Moscow in 1926, a short time after Lenin’s death, was and approved by the Central Committee of the USSR. Impressed on the reverse of the bust, in Russian, is “GIZ Factory Moscow 1926, No. 17,” indicating it was cast in 1926 at the State Publishing House Factory based on Model 17. In fine condition, with an untouched patina. Accompanied by a translated expert conclusion from Victor Kuznetsoff at the State Historical Museum in Russia, as well as an original description in Russian from the original owner of the bust, a Russian expatriate. Offered together with Nikita Khrushchev, Typed Letter Signed, ""N. Khrushchev,"" as First Secretary of the Communist Party of Ukraine, 1 page, 8"" x 11.25"", [Kiev], January 18, 1948 in Russian to The Regional Committee of the Communist Party of Ukraine concerning the 24th anniversary of the death of Lenin. Additionally dated in Khrushchev's hand. File holes and minor losses along left margin do not affect text, contemporary ink stamps and notations, light creases, else very good.Sergei Merkurov (1881-1952), was a renowned sculptor and monumentalist, whose works include the three largest Stalin monuments in the country, as well as the larger statue of Lenin which resided for decades in Red Square. This impressive bust was made from church bells (bronze with silver added) removed during the Bolshevik’s anti-religious campaign in 1922, which saw the destruction of thousands of churches and the deaths of tens of thousands of citizens. A very rare relic from the former communist country, where their leaders were idolized in impressive fashion. Oversized.Khrushchev's letter, which accompanies the bust reads, in full (translated): ""During the performance of mass political work in line with the 24th anniversary of the date of death of Vladimir Ilich Lenin, the Central Committee (CC) of the CP(b)U proposes that the resolution of the CC of the VKP(b) dated January 17, 1948, be followed, paragraphs 1, 2, 4, and 5 of which we are sending you."""

Efterhånden dækkede det kultur i bredere forstand. Det var udfordrende nyt både mht. indhold og form, og så var det frækt, pågående og frem for alt provokerende. Der var kritiske artikler om arkitektur, litteratur, filosofi - og meget andet. Holdningen bag var kulturradikal, og politisk befandt medarbejderne sig på venstrefløjen.Redaktøren og drivkraften bag Kritisk Revy var arkitekten, forfatteren og kulturkritikeren Poul Henningsen. I den faste stab var desuden arkitekterne Thorkild Henningsen, Edvard Heiberg og Ivar Bentsen, digteren Otto Gelsted og forfatteren Hans Kirk m.fl.

Kayser baut die Lehre von der Weltharmonie auf akustisch-musikalischer Basis unter Hinzunahme neuzeitlicher wissenschaftlicher Erkenntnisse neu auf als 'Harmonik' oder 'Akroasis'. Kayser geht in seiner Harmonik uber Thimus und die fruhere Tradition durch die Einfuhrung des Begriffs der 'Tonzahl' hinaus . Die Aufdeckung kosmischer Normen, die auf dem Weg der musikalischen Klänge dem Gefühl zugänglich gemacht werden können, hat der Harmonik die populäre Bezeichnung als 'Lehre vom Klang der Welt' eingebracht." Nach einer Information des Verlages sollte die fehlende Tafel 3 der Schlusslieferung, die nie erschienen ist, beigelegt werden. Dieses erste harmonikale Werk Kaysers, eines Schülers von Humperdinck und Schönberg, der 1933 emigrierte und als Privatgelehrter in der Schweiz lebte, ist ein beeindruckender Versuch einer Neubegründung der Harmonik.

        TORRENTS OF SPRING: A Romantic Novel in Honor of the Passing of a Great Race

      New York Charles Scribner's Sons 1926 - First edition. 8vo, original black cloth lettered in red on the spine and upper cover. 143 pp. A very good, well preserved copy of Hemingway's first novel, generally clean and solid, hinges firm with no splitting, the cloth with some light evidence of age, a pleasing copy FIRST EDITION OF THE AUTHOR'S FIRST LONG WORK TO BE PUBLISHED. Although it was written after THE SUN ALSO RISES --"to cool out," Hemingway explained-- THE TORRENTS OF SPRING was published prior to his more famous novel. It was written as a parody of Sherwood Anderson's Dark Laughter. "It seems to have started as a knockabout parody of Sherwood Anderson's mechanized folkware" (quoted in THE HEMINGWAY READER). Written in ten days, it is a satirical treatment of pretentious writers. Hemingway received a mixed reaction to the novella that was sharply critical of other authors. His wife Hadley believed the characterization of Anderson was "nasty", while F. Scott Fitzgerald considered the novella to be a masterpiece. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
