        Autograph Letter, Signed, to Amelia Ely Howe, wife of Dr. Walter C. Howe (April, 1926), about Harvey Cushing's book The Life of Sir William Osler. With Envelope addressed by Harvey Cushing.

      1926. 1926 - Very Good. Letterhead: Dr. Harvey Cushing/ The Peter Bent Brigham Hospital/ Boston. Dear Mrs. Howe: That was surely a long read for you but I am glad you have survived and that you can commend the book. I think, too, that the Oxford period is the best part of it. I was only beginning to learn how to do it and if I had had another five years to spare I might have been able to squeeze it into much smaller compass. I appreciate your note greatly. Sincerely, Harvey Cushing. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Anni Albers, »Study Rug« (groß).

      - Ein exquisites Sammlerstück für Ihr Zuhause: Visuell und haptisch ein herrliches Stück, stammt die Komposition »Study Rug« aus der Hand der sicherlich berühmtesten Textilkünstlerin des 20. Jahrhunderts, Anni Albers. Ursprünglich im Jahr 1926 als Wandbehang aus Baumwolle und Seide konzipiert, befindet sich die Entwurfszeichnung (Gouache auf Papier) heute im Museum of Modern Art New York. In enger Zusammenarbeit mit der Anni und Josef Albers Stiftung und durch diese authorisiert, wurde das Werk, welches ganz dem Geiste des Bauhauses verschrieben ist, in das Medium Teppich überführt. Überaus akribisch wurde an der Übereinstimmung mit dem Original gearbeitet, um eine höchst mögliche Übereinstimmung zu gewährleisten, die Limitierung auf 150 Exemplare kommt dem ebenfalls entgegen. Die manuelle Produktion des Teppichs in Indien, Nepal oder Pakistan erfolgte unter besonderem Augenmerk auf ethische Grundsätze, vor allem in Hinsicht auf Arbeitsbedingungen, Entlohnung und Kinderschutz in den traditionellen Knüpfbetrieben der jeweiligen Region und in den beteiligten Familien. Es versteht sich von selbst, dass das Material vollkommen unbelastet ist und die Wolle nur mit Pflanzen gefärbt wurde. Ein wertiges und einnehmendes Stück angewandte Kunst, ein kleiner, privater Kunstgenuss für jeden Tag! 122 x 183 cm, 100% Wolle handgeknüpft, limitierte Edition (150 Expl.), mit Echtheitszertifikat, aufwändig verpackt, mit »Care & Fair«-Label.

        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 .

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.
