      Marcus Adams 1926 - An original photograph album 12 1/2 x 10 1/2 inches. Original boards with a linen tie binding with a circular gilt embossed child as Pan.

Images measuring 8x6 inches (slight variation in sizes). One image slightly spotted otherwise in fine condition. The rear endpaper with Marcus Adams label and business - The Children's Studio. Marcus Adams (1875-1959) was a British society photographer noted for his portraits of children. Adams' father was the Reading based photographer Walton Adams. He began his career as an architectural photographer for the British Archaeological Society and took photographs for books by the antiquarian C.E. Keyser. With fellow photographers Bertram Park and Parks' wife Yvonne Gregory, Adams formed the "Three Photographers" group in 1920. Based at 43 Dover Street, Mayfair, they each worked independently, but shared use of printing, retouching and darkroom staff. Gaining notability for his portraits of children Adams took the first official photographs of the Duchess of York and her daughter Princess Elizabeth (the future Queen Mother and Queen Elizabeth II). His 1934 photograph of Princess Elizabeth at the age of 8 was used as the portrait for the $20 banknote of the 1935 Series of banknotes of the Canadian dollar. He continued his work as a photographer of royal children until a sitting with Princess Anne in 1956. Other notable children photographed by Adams included Christopher Robin Milne.

Report on the Naga Hills (Upper Chindwin) Expedition for the Abolition of Human Sacrifice January to March 1928... 2 folding maps. 42pp. 2 vols. Folio. Slavery and human sacrifice. A remarkable archive documenting Rich's service in Burma from his first posting in 1896 through to his work in the 1920s when he was engaged in the suppression of slavery and human sacrifice. After sixty years and three Anglo-Burmese wars, Burma became a British colony in 1886. Having completed the Suez canal, Britain turned to Burma for its rice supply and much of the Irrawaddy delta was dredged for the purpose. The British began an extensive survey work and initially Rich was an engineer attached to it. The archive commences with two letters written from Upper Burma to his mother while engaged on survey work in 1896 and 1897. Rich communicates much of what life was like for surveyors - preferring a grass hut to his tent, noting his meals and providing a general account of his travels. There are notes on the geography and topographical sketches. The material from this early period also includes his diary documenting the period 8-17, May 1899 when he was engaged in survey work for the Salween Railway in the Shan state. An early entry gives some of the flavor: "May 9th... arrived at camp no 2 at a Kachin village called Kangmong at 9 o'clock after an eventful march. At this village the present headman two years ago burnt a man by placing him in a hole in the ground with a fire on his head." Furthermore, he gives plenty of insight into day-to-day marching in the region: "during the rainy season we never put up our tents ... as a shower will nearly or quite double the weight of a tent". Rich notes arguments between his Chinese mule drivers and Hindustani guards and coolies. Nor does he spare himself in relating the ongoing difficulty of dealing with mules. Rich was keen to engage with those around him, especially the village headmen. "This [one] is more intelligent than the average Shan and in the afternoon I had a long talk with him ... through my Shan interpreter... Five years ago his village was attacked by Kachins & burnt... his people had to flee as they stood, leaving cattle & everything behind & they could not return till the British came up..." He also provides extensive notes on the geography as well as customs of the local tribes. He includes a lengthy description of a village at Maingyaw and its school. At Pangwo, he notes "it is the custom of these hill tribes to move their villages about once in 3 years. I once asked a villager how they agreed on when to move & he said that they usually waited till there were 3 deaths in one house..." Rich then describes the dwellings and wonders how after three years "not that 3 have died but that anyone is alive to tell the tale." Furthermore, there are two typed reports (totaling 24pp) to H. A. Thornton, Commissioner of the North-East Frontier Division. With a covering letter dated 17 March, 1923, the first report is titled "Report on the Hukawng and adjoining Unadministered Territory." It provides a detailed overview of the region with a view to governing the Unadministered areas. There is also the following aside "the Nagas continue gaily to practice their human sacrifices, whilst slavery still flourishes amongst the Nagas, as well as amongst the Kachins and Shans of the Hukawng and bloodfeuds are common amongst Kachins as well as Nagas." The second "Brief account of survey operations of No. 10 Party, Survey of India, in the North East frontier Division, Burma from 1909 to 1923." The two reports were made at the end of his service as the head of No. 10 Survey Party and essentially summarize fourteen years of his achievements. The bulk of the archive concerns the expeditions into the Hukawng Valley to release slaves being held captive and also to eradicate the practice of human sacrifice. The Hukawng Valley is an area of roughly 6000 square miles and at the time had a population of about fifteen thousand. The swampy nature of the terrain, and rapids on the Chindwin River, made the valley extremely difficult to access and in the 1920s the area was basically un-administered. It was only through the work of survey parties that slavery was discovered, and although there had long been reports of human sacrifice among the Nagas, this was only verified by the likes of Rich in 1922. The heart of the collection are the two bound volumes titled Slavery & Human Sacrifice on the North East Frontier of Burma. The first volume contains 102 bound leaves of manuscript, typescript and printed papers (many confidential) concerning Rich's work in Burma. They begin with notes regarding him passing exams in colloquial Yunnanese, the Chingpaw dialect of Kachin and Maru. The remaining papers concern the Kachin rising though principally involve operations in the Hukawng Valley and Naga Hills. They include Rich's report, his correspondence with superiors (letters and telegrams), receipts and accounts, despatches along with seven leaves of plates and ten folding maps, many of which are annotated. The second volume contains six confidential reports, none of which are located on OCLC, COPAC or KVK. The first report indicates the scale of the situation and how it was dealt with: "The number of slaves dealt with was 3445 ... The slaves were released on payment of compensation and solatium amounting to Rs.196,163." There were further monies paid as "agricultural advances." Regarding human sacrifice, a similar method of dissuasion was used. "Promises have been clinched my mutual presents and though there may be occasional breaches... periodic visits from Civil Officers [will ensure] the end of the custom of human sacrifice is in sight." In addition to the narrative of the expeditions, there is also a full breakdown of how these expeditions were equipped, methods of communication, tables showing at what rates slave owners would be compensated, and medical information relating to disease and vaccinations. The sketch maps show the tracks of each expedition. These confidential reports complement the additional material and this archive provides a substantial record of a dramatic, if little known, episode in British colonial rule. Rich's contributions are acknowledged in a 1929 letter from Hugh Aylmer Thornton, C.I.E.: "you must feel that you more than anyone else is clearly due the credit for ending the slavery and human sacrifice in the unadministered areas." All of this is complemented by 75 original photographs that provide a rare glimpse into a seldom visited part of Burma. Rich attended Sandhurst and served as 2nd Lieutenant in the Royal Engineers. His long association with Burma commenced almost immediately when he was posted to India in 1895 and then to Burma in 1896 where he helped survey the railway. He returned to Burma in 1911 for more surveying work, this time at the frontier post at Myitkyina from where he was responsible for the surveying of the border with Tibet and Yunnan. After the Second World War Rich returned to Burma where he was in charge of the Burma Circle of the Survey of India. He retired with the rank of Colonel and was made C.I.E. in 1928. A. McLeish, Christian Progress in Burma. London, 1929. pp37-40

Zane Grey to come to New Zealand, sample the marlin and trout fishing and write about them. On the trout fishing section of his assignment, he fisted the Western Bays with fine success, but it was the Tongariro River flowing into the southern end of the lake that caused him to write in raptures. . . . Grey's book drew the attention of anglers from all over to the magnificent Tonagriro River and it came to be regarded as arguable the finest rainbow trout river in the world."

        The History of H.M. Navigation School, 1729-1926.

      Portsmouth: H.M. Navigation School,, 1926. Square octavo. Presentation blue cloth, gilt lettered spine with anchor motifs. From the library of Admiral of the Fleet John Rushworth Jellicoe, first Earl Jellicoe (1859-1935), commander of the Grand Fleet at Jutland (31 May - 1 June 1916). Spine sunned, covers patchily faded; internally clean and crisp. Carbon copy typescript of an interesting history, later printed in The Naval Review (1926, volume 4, issue 14, pp. 792-820); the original is at the Royal United Services Institution (finding reference: RUSI/NM/159). The only copy held in other public institutions is that at the Australian Defence Force Academy Library but this appears to be a 31 page offprint from the Naval Review. Presentation copy from the author, inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Lord Jellicoe, with the compliments of the Author. September, 1926". Rear Admiral Robert Kirk Dickson DSO (1898-1952) captained the minelayer "Manxman" (October 1940-December 1942) as part of Force "X" during the Mediterranean convoys of World War II: "On his return from Operation Style, Admiral Somerville began planning for an air attack on targets in Northern Sardinia to take place at the same time so as to create a diversion for a minelaying operation in the Gulf of Genoa. He proposed that the new fast minelayer, "Manxman", Captain R. K. Dickson, should be employed to lay mines off Leghorn" (The Royal Navy and the Mediterranean Volume II: November 1940-December 1941, p. 163). On 1 December 1942 "Manxman" was hit twice by U-375 and despite being severely damaged reached Oran under tow. Dickson later served as Chief of Naval Information at the Admiralty.

        Seeteufel. Abenteuer aus meinem Leben

      Berlin & Leipzig: K.F. Koehler. 1926. "Later printing (the book was first published in 1921); 8vo, pp. [6], 318, [2] ads; folding map showing the course of the German raider Seeadler to the the point of its demise in the Pacific in 1917; double-p. sailplan, and approx. 135 illustrations throughout, largely from photographs taken during the cruise; original pictorial cloth, spine a bit soiled, else generally very good. This copy enhanced by a 13-line inscription in German by the ship's navigator (and famed whaler and Arctic explorer) Carl Kircheiss, to Carl G. Orgell, dated Philadelphia, 17 October, 1927, mentioning the Seeadler, and also with a 7-line inscribed photograph of the navigator laid in. From January to July 1917, the Seeadler sank fourteen allied ships, eleven in the Atlantic and three in the Pacific. In August, however, the Seeadler was lost altogether: she was wrecked on an atoll in French Polynesia. Mystery still surrounds her loss. Von Luckner attested to the German Admiralty that an underwater earthquake caused a tsunami that dashed the ship on the reef, a story that is reaffirmed here in this book, and by several subsequent historians of the Germany Navy. And so has that story been perpetuated through the ensuing decades. Two contemporary investigations, as well as several recent ones, dispute this version of events, and instead blame Von Luckner for being oblivious to the change in the wind direction which blew the Seeadler onto the reef. Ignored by the supporters of Von Luckner was a 1929 book by the navigator of the Seeadler Carl Kircheiss in which he offers a vastly different version of how the shipwreck occurred, and one, ultimately, much closer to the truth. For a full account see the article by James N. Bade, University of Aukland, at http://www.europe.canterbury.ac.nz/conferences/euro2003/paper1.pdf"

      Vienna, 24 March 1926 - 1 page. 8vo. On „Prof. Dr. Freud" stationery. To an unnamed recipient, "Esteemed Sir," in German, explaining that his work at the "magic mountain" leaves only the evenings to socialize and arranging a meeting after dinner. „I am very sorry that your recent visit to me was unsuccessful. My day in this magic mountain or cave is divided in such a way that I have only the evening for enjoyments. May I suggest that you honor me with a visit today, at 8 or 8:15 after dinner, to exchange ideas and have a cigar? Or give the bearer some other time?" - Thomas Mann's novel, Magic Mountain, in which several themes are developed including the health of the mind and body, was published in 1924, two years prior to the writing of this letter.

        TWO WORLDS MONTHLY

      New York: Two Worlds Publishing, 1926. n. Softcover. 238 x 168 mm (9 3/8 x 6 5/8"). The journal's first 11 issues. Edited by Samuel Roth. Original printed paper wrappers. Isolated pencilled marginalia. Slocum & Cahoon C-68. Five spines with minor chip at tail, short splits to head of six joints, covers of last issue detached and chipped around the edges, covers a little soiled, with a couple of short fore-edge tears, occasional corner creases or short marginal tears, but the leaves clean and fresh, and the fragile volumes otherwise well preserved. These 11 issues contain bowdlerized (and unauthorized) reprints of 13 episodes of Joyce's "Ulysses," which had been banned in the United States on grounds of obscenity. This bold piracy certainly brought Roth to the attention of the literary world: according to Slocum & Cahoon, "This unauthorized serialization of Ulysses resulted in considerable public indignation and provoked the 'International Protest' signed by 167 artists and writers and printed in transition I (April 1927)." Roth had planned to publish 14 installments in 12 issues; however, the 12th issue never appeared individually, though that section did appear in a later two-volume bound edition. Joyce sought and obtained an injunction against Roth, but by that time "Two Worlds" had ceased publication. The author sued for damages, claiming that an American edition of "Ulysses" could make $500,000. The New York Times reported that Roth countered, "The circulation of The Two Worlds Magazine has decreased very appreciably since the announcement of the articles by Mr. Joyce." In addition to "Ulysses," the magazine contains writings by T. S. Eliot, Ezra Pound, Djuna Barnes, Anatole France, D. H. Lawrence, and Octave Mirbeau's scandalous novel, "Diary of a Chambermaid." Complete sets of the individual issues are very hard to find, especially in good condition.

        [Manuscrit autographe inédit et tapuscrit] "Les éléments non rationnels du langage", conférence à la Sorbonne (amphithéâtre Michelet) le 2 juin 1927

      1926. Manuscrit. Bon. En Feuilles. In-4. Manuscrit autographe (parafé deux fois en tête) de 40 pp. in-4 (nombreuses ratures et corrections) et tapuscrit avec corrections autographes de 20 pp. in-4. Le tapuscrit est la mise au propre du manuscrit. L'ensemble est à notre connaissance inédit. Dans son "Histoire de la psychanalyse en France" (t. 1, p. 313 sq.) Elisabeth Roudinesco cite, parmi les trois articles capitaux de Pichon, un article de 1928 publié dans la revue de Janet ("Le Journal de Psychologie"), "Sur la signification psychologique de la négation en français" où il présente le concept de "forclusion", devenant ainsi "l'initiateur d'un moment théorique essentiel de l'histoire du mouvement psychanalytique français". Or cette conférence de 1927 prépare l'article de 1928 (auquel Jacques Lacan fera souvent référence) et les pages 31 à 40 du manuscrit (et 16 à 20 du tapuscrit) sont consacrées au concept de forclusion, qui s'invente donc publiquement ce 2 juin 1927. Tout est déjà dans le texte de cette conférence, jusqu'à la phrase de Marsillac à propos de l'affaire Dreyfus sur laquelle E. Roudinesco fait de longs développements. Notons que le tome 1 de l'Essai de Grammaire française, où Pichon et Damourette traitent plus longuement de la négation en français, quoique sous-titré "1911-1927", ne paraîtra qu'en 1930. Et nous verrons ailleurs (cf. réf. XXXX), non sans une certaine ironie, que si la réflexion sur le langage conduite par Pichon est une source d'inspiration importante pour Lacan, la langue de ce dernier est une source primaire cryptée de l'Essai de Grammaire. Personnage d'une grande richesse, d'une infinie curiosité et très complexe, Edouard Pichon est un contemporain et - par son intérêt pour le langage - un précurseur de Lacan, qui lui reprendra - entre autres - le concept de forclusion. Il est l'un des membres fondateurs du groupe de L'Evolution psychiatrique et de la Société Psychanalytique de Paris (dont il fut président de 1935 à 1937). Avec son oncle Jacques Damourette, il est l'auteur d'un monumental Essai de Grammaire française dont la publication s'étala sur près de 30 ans. Il fut également fervent maurrassien tout en étant dreyfusard, et le gendre de Pierre Janet sans être janetien. (Voir à son sujet, E. Roudinesco, Histoire de la psychanalyse en France, t. 1, pp. 297-320). Nota : ce document ne pourra être exporté en dehors de l'Union Européenne sans autorisation préalable du ministère de la Culture, formalité pouvant prendre plusieurs jours..

        The Daisy: Senior Issue. June 1926

      Brooklyn, New York: East District High School. 1926. First. Edited by Daniel Fuchs. Large octavo. 39, [9] ads pp. Stapled and illustrated orange wrappers. Owner's name on front cover, vertical crease, small chip and modest wear on the wrappers, very good. Also includes a page signed by many classmates (but not, it appears, by Fuchs). Fuchs was the author of the classic Jewish-American novel A Summer in Williamsburg set in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Not only did Fuchs edit this high school literary magazine, he is pictured with a brief biography (as well as pictured in the class picture), and here publishes the Second Prize story in the school's Short Story Contest, "Isidore Goldfarb Reflects...", which is very reminiscent of his later fiction. The biography reveals that Fuchs edited and contributed to the magazine for most of his high school tenure, so presumably this is not his first published work. However, we've seen no other copy of the magazine. His first novel, A Summer in Williamsburg, was published in 1934, the same year as the other great Jewish-American Depression classic Call It Sleep by Henry Roth. Fuchs later devoted himself to writing film scripts, one of which, Love Me Or Leave Me, won him an Academy Award. .

        El Habitante Y Su Esperanza [Association Copy: Signed, Placed, and Dated]

      Editorial Nascimento, Buenos Aires 1926 - A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original cream-colored wrappers (some handling soil, small stain to the spine head and adjoining portion of each wrapper, title to the front wrapper underlined in blue, evidence of neat early repairs to the spine ends and edges and to the hinges -- in better condition than we are used to seeing), SIGNED BY PABLO NERUDA on the front free endpaper and there inscribed by him as follows: para / Maury / Austin / Bromsen / [illegible] / Neruda / 1947". Neruda also has placed his inscription and signature in "Santiago / de Chile". Pablo Neruda won the 1971 Nobel Prize in Literature for "a poetry that with the action of an elemental force brings alive a continent's destiny and dreams". [Bromsen, the inscribee, was a noted American bibliophile and book dealer who spent 1941 and 1947 (the year Neruda inscribed this book) at the University of Chile as both student and teacher. An expert in Latin America, Bromsen was a member of the Department of Cultural Affairs for the Pan American Union and built the finest collection of manuscript and iconographic items in the United States related to his hero Simon Bolivar, a leader in the struggle for South American independence, as well as other materials relating to colonial Spanish America spanning the period from Columbus' arrival to Bolivar's death.] Neruda's only novel, El Habitante Y Su Esperanza [The Inhabitant and His Hope], evokes a brooding atmosphere while telling its tale of a jailed horse thief in love with the wife of a fellow felon. A dark work, the novel explores the baser human instincts with its tales of adultery and violent revenge, often speaking to the reader through surreal dreams and lyrical descriptions. While Neruda's habit was to sign his works in green ink -- with green symbolizing hope, IT IS QUITE NOTABLE THAT HE HAS SIGNED THIS BLEAK NOVEL IN BLUE RATHER THAN IN HIS COLOR OF HOPE. [Every other book signed by Neruda that we have handled or otherwise seen has been signed in green ink.] The book itself is not common in the first edition and signed copies of it are as scarce as hen's teeth -- with the auction records showing no signed copy ever having come to auction as of the creation of this listing. A Very Good ASSOCIATION COPY OF PABLO NERUDA'S ONLY NOVEL, SIGNED BY PABLO NERUDA AND QUITE SIGNIFICANTLY SIGNED IN BLUE RATHER THAN IN GREEN. Housed in a custom chemise and slipcase. EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE AND QUITE POSSIBLY RARE. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        'Windstilte'.

      Origineel handschrift. 27,5 x 21,1 cm. Drie bladen. Recto (eenmaal) en verso (tweemaal). Met enkele doorhalingen en correcties. Perforatiegaatjes.* Melancholisch vers van zestien strofen, voorafgegaan door een Frans citaat van Henry J.-M. Levet en aan het slot gedateerd 'Cap. Martin, Dec. '25'. Het is een belangrijk gedicht volgens Du Perrons biograaf, 'als het ware één lange mijmering waarin Perkens de balans opmaakt van zijn ervaringen'.Dit handschrift is een vroege versie van het gedicht dat voor het eerst gepubliceerd werd in Bij gebrek aan ernst (1926): de vijftiende strofe ('Ik draag mij op vandaag te kopen'...) ontbreekt hier nog. Voorts zijn er minimale afwijkingen in de interpunctie en is er in de tweede regel van de eennalaatste strofe sprake van 'binnenhuis-filosofie', in plaats van het krachtiger 'luierstoel-filosofie'. De zevende strofe heeft hier ook nog de leuke, bij publicatie in Mikrochaos (1932) gewijzigde regels: 'eens komt Ostaijen dit te weten,/ mijn verzenmaken maakt hem ziek,/ zend mij lankmoedig een komplete/ gebruiksaanwijzing der lyriek'.In de linkermarge van het eerste blad schreef Du Perron een begeleidend schrijven: 'B[este] W[illink]/ Hierbij Windstilte./ In alle haast je D.P.' Enkel dit drieregelige briefje gepubliceerd in Brieven, deel 1, p. 76.

        Sammlung von 11 eigenh. Briefen m. U.

      Berlin (8), Rowe (2) und Hendaye (1), 1926-40 - 4to. 25 SS. An Walter Minnich. Inhaltsreiche und persönliche Briefe, die anschaulich die Abwärtspirale von Pechsteins Lebensumständen in den dreißiger Jahren wiedergeben. Zur Sprache kommen Krankheiten in der Familie und bei ihm selbst (schwere Lungenentzündung 1936), die wenigen Ausstellungen in jener Zeit, Ausstellungsverbot, der Ausschluß aus der Akademie, die Sorge um den Lebensunterhalt, das Angebot einer Lehrstelle in Istanbul, der finanziell schmerzliche Betrug durch einen Kunsthändler, der drohende Krieg u. a. Zugleich berichtet Pechstein immer wieder von seinen Aufenthalten in Rowe, dem frugalen Leben in seiner Hütte am Koser See, dem „schützenden Asyl", das ihn „vor dem Zerbrechen bewahrt", auch im ganz physischen Sinne, wenn er durch Fischen und Holzhacken sein täglich Brot bestreitet. „. Sie wissen, daß mir Ihr Urteil sehr wertvoll ist, und daß ich auch eine stramme Kritik von Ihnen vertrage, und sogar gern habe, während mir die Zeitungen gestohlen werden können, denn diese Herren erledigen in 5 Minuten die Jahresarbeit eines Menschen mit ihrem totsicheren Urteil, welches durch keine eingehende Kenntnis getrübt ist. Im Frühjahr hoff ich, so Alles gut geht, also, Ihrem Rate zu folgen, und will nach Südfrankfreich fahren, jetzt kann ich ich leider nicht fort, denn ich hoffe immer noch etwas zu verkaufen, wenigstens mehr, als das Teure Leben verschlingt ." (Berlin, 2. Dez. 1926)„. hier in Berlin habe ich erst Kenntniss bekommen von allen Geschehnissen diesen Sommers, welche auch meine Person stark in Mitleidenschaft gezogen haben, zuletzt habe ich auch den Bescheid erhalten, dass ich auf Anordnung des Kulturministers aus der Akademie ausgeschlossen bin. Jetzt drängen sich nun notgedrungen Erwägungen auf, wie ich mein ferneres Leben gestalten könnte, um weiter für meine, und die Existenz meiner Familie sorgen zu können. Von meiner Hände Arbeit als Maler ist dies nicht mehr möglich. Was ich ausserdem noch kann ist Fischen, aber werde ich dies dürfen, denn die Berufsfischer sind schon wie der Teufel hinter jedes nutzbare Fischwasser her, und dann, was mach ich mit dem Jungen? Derselbe macht mir viel Freude, er ist jetzt mit seinen elf Jahren bereits so gross wie ich, und ist ein lebendiger, temperamentvoller Bengel . Marta sagt: nach Italien! Ja, ein grosses Fragezeichen, werde ich da eine Möglichkeit haben, wenigstens für die Dreie das Leben zu schaffen? ." (Berlin, 5. Nov. 1937)„. So entging ich all dem schrecklichen Aufregungen, und konnte mich, zurückgezogen auf mich selbst, ganz meiner Arbeit widmen. Jetzt, wenn ich mir dieselben im Atelier ansehe, freue ich mich derselben, denn ich hatte mir endlich den Wald in grösserem Format vorgenommen, nachdem ich dies Problem, die Jahre vorher, bereits in grossen und kleineren Zeichnungen, Farbskizzen, Aquarellen, bearbeitet hatte. Dergestalt habe ich auch hier in dieser Steinwüste, ein schützendes Asyl, welches mich vor dem Zerbrechen bewahrt, denn die Geschehnisse der letzten Zeit haben mich sehr durchgeschüttelt, und erneut die Sehnsucht nach den seligen Gefilden der Südsee geweckt, in welchem kein Machthunger die Menschen vergewaltigt ." (Berlin, 2. Jan. 1939)„. So wenig, wie ich anfangs an einen Krieg glauben wollte, so musste ich mich doch daran gewöhnen, ich glaube nicht, dass ich noch persönlich in Frage komme, denn erstens bin ich nun 58 Jahre alt, und dann bin ich auch nicht mehr der Kerl, wie im Weltkrieg, die schwere Krankheit 1936 hat doch am Herz etwas zurückgelassen. Nun wünsche ich bloss noch recht sehr, dass die Nerven durchhalten, und hoffe, dass ich dann im kommenden Frühjahr und Sommer erneut nach Pommern fahren kann. Dort in der Einsamkeit, finde ich auch meine alte Arbeitsfreude wieder. Gegenwärtig mache ich in den langen Arbeitsstunden Abends bei Licht Schmuck, ja! ich arbeite wie ein Goldschmied, in Nidden fand ich wunderhübsche Steine, welche ich schleifen und polieren liess, und verarbeite dieselben nun selbst in Silber zu Ringen, Armbändern, Mansche

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. und 5 eh. Postkarten mit U.

      Zürich, 1925 und 1926. - Zusammen 11 SS. auf 6 Bll. Gr.-4to und qu.-8vo. Die Karten jeweils mit eh. Adresse. Korrespondenz mit Otto Wernthal vom gleichnamigen Musikverlag über eine geplante Veröffentlichung von Kinderliedern, deren er achtzehn mit gleicher Post übersendet: „[.] Es sind alles Originaltexte von mir. Wenn Sie diese mit den Liedchen im Buch mischen würden, hätte man die stattliche Zahl von 30 Kinderliedern. Käme das Buch nur broschiert heraus, wie viele andere Sammlungen, mit einigen der besten Bilder, und würde eine große Auflage gedruckt, dann wäre sicher ein Geschäft zu machen. Ich werde von mir aus eine Kollektivreklame in Tageszeitungen machen [.]" (a. d. Br. v. 1. Dezember 1925). – Die Karten mit Detailfragen zu dem Verlagswerk, das im Jahr darauf unter dem Titel „25 Kinderlieder für eine Singstimme und Pianoforte. Gedichtet und vertont von Heinrich Pestalozzi. Mit Zeichnungen von Georg Ludwig Hahn" in Berlin bei Wernthal erscheinen sollte. – Heinrich Pestalozzi studierte Theologie in Zürich, Basel, Tübingen und Berlin, legte 1902 das theologische Staatsexamen ab und studierte dann an der Musikhochschule sowie am Sternschen Konservatorium in Berlin Violine und Komposition. „Nach einer Tätigkeit als Gesangslehrer nahm er 1912 eine Pfarrstelle in Arosa an und ging 1917 als Lehrer für Sologesang nach Zürich. Pestalozzi komponierte Lieder, Chöre, Klavierstücke und Violinsonaten. Er schrieb Gedichte und musikpädagogische Werke (u. a. ‚Die deutsche Bühnenaussprache im Gesang’ [.], 1925; ‚Kehlkopfgymnastik’, 1925)" (DBE). – Gelocht (tls. minimale Buchstabenberührung) und tls. mit kleineren Randläsuren.

        The Sun Also Rises

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1926 First edition, first issue with "stoppped" for "stopped" on page 181. Publisher's black cloth, with gold title labels to the front board and spine, Cleon vignette illustration to the title page. Near fine or better, with some minor rubbing and a faint vertical crease to the spine label, otherwise bright and unfaded spine, fresh and clean interior. A lovely copy. The Sun Also Rises is Hemingway's second novel and is considered his most important work. The text tells the story of American and British expatriates who travel to the Festival of San Fermínin in Pamplona, Spain. The plot, which is based on Hemingway's own experience at the Festival of San Fermínin with literary expatriates then living in Paris, unites Hemingway's main interests that continue to appear in his subsequent novels. Additionally, The Sun Also Rises utilizes the Iceberg Theory so evident in much of Hemingway's writing, where the true essence of the story is not expressly said in the plot but rather is meant to be inferred. Hemingway's experiences in Pamplona inspired his interest and vast knowledge of bullfighting, which he showcased in his non-fiction work Death in the Afternoon.. 1st Edition.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.
