        4 ms. Briefe mit eigenh. U. München, 1928 bis 1931.

      1928. Zus. 6½ SS. auf 5 Bll. Gr.-4to. Mit ms. adr. Kuverts. An den Maler, Schriftsteller und Komponist Karl Georg Hemmerich: "[...] Wieder habe ich Haltung und Unterton Ihrer Worte, fast ebenso stark wie aus Ihrem Werk selbst, herausgespürt, dass Sie einen richtigen und bedeutsamen Weg gehen, dass Ihre Auffassung der Musik nicht nur aus Ihnen, sondern aus dem tiefen Sinne der Zeit sich herleitet [...] Wie sehr gerne und dankbar ich inzwischen die Widmung Ihrer Komposition annehmen und mich auf deren Übersendung freue, brauch ich kaum zuzufügen [...]" (10. XI. 1928). - "[...] Und im Allgemeinen wissen Sie ja wie es in Deutschland steht, schon längst die kulturellen, nun auch die wirtschaftlichen Dinge sind schwer bedroht. Wir gehen grossen Krisen entgegen. Bezüglich der allgemeinen und der eigenen Zukunft sehe ich nicht hell [...]" (11. X. 1929). - "Es ist freilich so wie Sie sagen: die Menschen, mindestens die des heutigen Kulturkreises, leben in armseliger Vereinzelung, einander nah und doch nicht nah, wie durch luftlose, seelenleere Schicht geschieden. Was Sie so sehr beklagen, erfahre ich selber wieder und wieder und nun - ach nein seit vielen Jahren schon - bin ich darauf gekommen mit aufeinandergebissenen Zähnen müsse man weiter schreiten [...]" (26. IV. 1930). - "[...] Was Sie über die Einsamkeit des heutigen Menschen schreiben, trifft nur zu sehr. Ob wir wollen oder nicht, wir sehen einander über einen Abgrund, glücklich, wenn die gegen einander ausgestreckten Arme den anderen grad noch streifen, beseligt, wenn die Hände einen Augenblick sich wärmend finden. Auch dies ist ein Schicksal, ein europäisches Schicksal - und das Andere Fatum, das russische, löscht jedes Einselsein [!], drängt jede Kraft, zwingt jedes Streben, beugt jeden Willen, ja leert alle Liebe in die grosse pulsende und unfassbare Einheit genannt 'Alle'. Wir haben unsere Art und Daseinsform nicht ausgesucht, aber wir können sie nicht zerbrechen. Fug ist stärker als Wille, Wucht gewaltiger als Wunsch, das gilt in jedem Fall [...]" (24. VIII. 1931; die Verso-Seite mit einigen Berechnungen in Bleistift sowie einer angedeuteten Frauenbüste).

        Shanghai of Today. A Souvenir Album of Fifty Vandyck Prints of "The Model Settlement"....

      Shanghai. Kelly & Walsh. 1928. 15pp + 50 striking tipped in plates on an individual leaf each with decorative border and printed caption on opposite leaf. Black and white plate on upper cover. Original paper covered limp boards marked and worn with loss particularly at corners, plain modern cloth spine, Japanese paper repairs on joints. From the library of Arthur Hacker, Hong Kong author, artist, historian and collector with a neat pencilled underneath each image. Although the binding is worn and damaged the contents of this copy are very good and clean. 31 X 25cm. The eight page introduction by O.M. Green, editor of the North China Daily News, offers a very interesting picture of the city of Shanghai in the late 1920s. O.M. Green's opinions are interesting and no doubt reflect the thoughts of many others at the time. Certain of the great benefit and superiority of Western ways and Westerner governance he gives only limited recognition to the contribution of the local Chinese people. His text is accompanied by the 50 views which of course are the heart of this book. These striking views of Shanghai through a soft lens include a great many street scenes showing the local inhabitants going about their daily business with the grand buildings of Shanghai featuring in the background.

        Zur Lage der Strafrechtspflege. Die Lehren eines praktischen Falles.

      Leipzig; F. C. W. Vogel, 1928. (Offprint from Archiv für Kriminologie (Kriminalanthropologie und Kriminalistik), Band 82, 2/3. Heft, 1928). 21x15 cm. 99-138 pp. Plain quarter cloth with marbled boards, paper label on front board with ''54'' printed and an ''A'' in handwriting. With the library stamp of Magnus Hirschfeld-Stiftung on front paste-down, front wrapper and first text page. With the title in handwriting on the first text page. The boards are slightly bowed. Contents are a bit toned in margins. A well-preserved copy. Max Alsberg (1877-1933), German jurist from a Jewish merchant family and one of the most famous criminal defense lawyers of the Weimar Republic. He describes in this work a case where a man is wrongly convicted as the court fails to expose an unreliable witness, and urges that forensic psychiatrist should be consulted at trials on a regular basis. One of few surviving books from the library of the Magnus Hirschfeld-Stiftung, which was seized and, to a great extent, burned by the Nazi regime. Magnus Hirschfeld (1868-1935), Jewish German physician and sexologist. He was a co-founder of the Wissenschaftlich-humanitäre Komitee in 1897, an organisation which implemented ''the first advocacy for homosexual and transgender rights'' (Goltz: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Movements, 2008), and started the Institut für Sexualwissenschaft in Berlin in 1919. The institute gained world-wide reputation for its providing of medical consultations and its educational activities concerning sexuality. The library, from which the offered book is derived, housed at the institute consisted of around 40 000 volumes. They were all seized or burned in 1933, as the Nazi regime started persecuting perceived sexual deviants. Later that same year, an auction was arranged where approximately 8000 volumes from the institute's library were sold (cf. Dose & Herrn: Verloren 1933: Bibliothek und Archiv des Instituts für Sexualwissenschaft in Berlin, Frankfurt 2006). The whereabouts of these supposedly survived copies are unknown, in any case books from the institute's library are extremely scarce.

Philby settled in Jeddah and became famous as an international writer and explorer.

        Beggars of LIfe (Original photograph from the 1928 film)

      Los Angeles: Paramount / Famous Lasky Corporation, 1928. Vintage black-and-white reference photograph from the 1928 film. Based on Jim Tully's 1924 book, "Beggars of Life: A Hobo Autobiography." The story of a girl (Louise Brooks, known only as "The Girl") who kills her treacherous stepfather, disguises herself as a boy, joins up with a vagabond (Richard Arlen as "The Boy") and attempts to escape the country into Canada. The first Paramount film to have a small amount of spoken dialogue, added in post-recording to the music and effects track. Much of it was filmed on location, including footage of an actual train derailment. Louise Brooks performed her own stunt in a scene where she jumps onto a moving train. Brooks' appearance in the film as a boy began a trend in popular film beauties playing androgynous roles, culminating 13 years later when Veronica Lake played another boyish vagabond character simply called "The Girl" in Sullivan's Travels. Preston Sturges was likely inspired by the William Wellman scenario. 8 x 10 inches (20 x 25 cm). Near Fine. Complete collation details available on request.

Atlas of plates intended to accompany Aly Bahgat's 1928 Arabic translation of the original French edition of his "Fouilles dal Foustât" (Paris, 1921). The city of Fustat, the first capital of Egypt under Arab rule, reached its peak in the 12th century, with a population of approximately 200,000. It was the center of administrative power in Egypt until it was ordered burned in 1168 by its own vizier, Shawar, to keep its wealth out of the hands of the invading Crusaders. The remains of the city were eventually absorbed into nearby Cairo. Today, Fustat is part of Old Cairo, with few buildings remaining from its days as capital, though there have been many archaeological digs which have taken advantage of the wealth of buried material in the area. Many ancient items recovered from the site are on display in Cairo's Museum of Islamic Art. - Table of contents and captions in Arabic and French.

        THE POOH BOOKS, Including: When We Were Very Young; Winnie-the-Pooh; Now We Are Six; and The House at Pooh Corner

      Methuen & Co., Ltd, London 1928 - A complete set of the first, UK trade editions for all four "Pooh" books in a lovely state of preservation. "When We Were Very Young" is a Nearly Fine copy with the spine gently cocked and slight offsetting to the end papers. "Winnie The Pooh" is a Fine copy of the book. "Now We Are Six" is a Fine copy of the book with minor offsetting to the pages adjacent the half-titles (as always). "The House at Pooh Corner" is Nearly Fine with the spine very lightly faded and faint soiling to the cloth.A. A. Milne would write the Pooh stories after being inspired by his son, Christopher Robin, and his stuffed animals, one of which was a bear named "Winnie." Milne had written prolifically in other modes and genres, but the Pooh books would go on to outshine all his other works. Indeed, "Winnie The Pooh" has been listed on the New York Public Library's 100 greatest children's books of the century and the Ashdown Forest, where the stories take place, has become a tourist attraction as a result. "I think Pooh's secret is the kindness and generosity of spirit of the characters toward each other." (Jeanne Lamb, NY Public Library). [Attributes: First Edition]
