        Sie kommt - kommt sie? Roman. Einzig berechtigte Übersetzung aus dem Russischen von Jakob Margot Schubert und Gregor Jarcho.

      Ullstein, Berlin 1928 - 253 S. Hervorragend restaurierter keinformatiger Orig.-Leinenband. Nabokovs erster Roman "Maschenka" (russisch 1926), der bereits zahlreiche Motive des Spätwerks aufweist, spielt wie die meisten Romane der frühen Schaffensperiode des Autors in der russischen Emigrantenszene im Berlin der 1920er Jahre. Am 21.3.1928 unterzeichnete Nabokov den Verlagsvertrag, der neben der Buchausgabe auch einen Vorabdruck in der "Vossischen Zeitung" vorsah. Gerade die populäre und preiswerte Erscheinungsweise im Ullsteinverlag macht diese deutsche Erstausgabe mit dem Copyrightvermerk von 1928 heute fast unauffindbar. Die vier bislang im Handel nachweisbaren Exemplare waren zudem sämtlich Orig.-Broschuren in der Reihe der "Gelben Ullstein Bücher", meines Wissens ist dies der erste Nachweis für ein gebundenes Exemplar. Auch das "Deutsche Bücherverzeichnis" von 1932, das als Erscheinungsjahr übrigens - ebenso wie die Deutsche Nationalbibliothek in Leipzig - 1929 angibt, kennt nur die broschierte Ausgabe. Die Restauratorin hat sich bei der Reparatur selbst übertroffen: Der abgeplatzte Rücken des Originals wurde durch farblich passendes Leinen unterfüttert und wieder aufgezogen, so daß der Band dabei unbeschädigt seine originalen weißen Vorsatzpapiere behalten konnte. Insgesamt handelt es sich um ein gut erhaltenes, fleckenfreies Exemplar ohne Einträge und mit nur leichten Gebrauchsspuren. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Theodor Fontane (= 6. Gabe des "Fontane Abend").

      Offiicina Serpentis für den Fontane-Abend, Berlin 1928 - 14 S., 1 Blatt Impressum, 1 weißes Blatt. Etwas größerer Orig.-Halbpergamentband mit pergamentverstärkten Eckchen. Eins von 75 handschriftlich numerierten und von Thomas Mann im Impressum eigenhändig signierten Exemplaren. Thomas Mann hatte seinen Fontane-Vortrag zunächst an der Lessing-Hochschule zu Berlin gehalten, bevor er später, mit geringfügigen Änderungen, als Einleitung der Fontaneausgabe des Reclam-Verlages diente. Doch auf Bitten von Eugen Pinner überließ er dem "Fontane-Abend" seinen Vortragstext für diese Mitgliedergabe, die die Officina Serpentis in der Leibniz-Fraktur setzte und auf der Handpresse abzog. Es handelt sich um ein schönes, gut erhaltenes Exemplar dieses Juwels für Fontanekenner mit allenfalls minimalen Gebrauchsspuren. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Erstausgabe WG 27. Joachim Ringelnatz (* 7. August 1883 in Wurzen - + 17. November 1934 in Berlin; eigentlich Hans Gustav Bötticher) war ein deutscher Schriftsteller, Kabarettist und Maler, der vor allem für humoristische Gedichte um die Kunstfigur Kuttel Daddeldu bekannt ist. Er war bekannt zur Zeit der Weimarer Republik, stand an Popularität den Comedian Harmonists in nichts nach und zählte Schauspieler wie Asta Nielsen und Paul Wegener zu seinen engen Freunden und Weggefährten.

In diesem Werk schildert Ringelnatz unter dem Pseudonym Hester sein Leben in der Zeit des Ersten Weltkrieges. Während dieser Zeit diente er sich bei der Marine vom Matrosen bis zum Leutnant hoch und meldete sich freiwillig zu Kampfeinsätzen. Dabei diente Ringelnatz an wechselnden Orten, meist in der Nähe von Cuxhaven. Auch seine Urlaubserlebnisse finden in seinen Ausführungen Platz.

A classic Art Deco poster, showing cubist influences, by Jean Carlu, one of the early twentieth-century's preeminent poster designers.On his famous image of the comedienne Pépa Bonafé, Carlu explained: "The Pépa Bonafé agent asked me to create a poster but I was not, like Loupot, a posterist of women. I did not feel comfortable. However, by stylizing her profile, I immediately caught the resemblance. Pépa Bonafé did not look her best, but she understood that this poster on walls would be excellent publicity... I combined curves and straight lines so that I could associate the mask of joy with the mask of sadness."Paris: Marcel Picard, 1928. 22 ½ x14 ¾ in, 570x370mm. Linen backed.

В монографии рассмотрены китайские монеты и боны. Первым трудом на русском языке стало в 1848 году сочинение монаха Иоакинфа Бичурина, в одном из разделов которого рассматривались китайские монеты. Всего в библиографии темы указано 47 материалов на русском языке по 1928 год и большое количество на английском и других европейских языках, а также рукописные переводы ряда работ на китайском («Новое описание монет Китая», «История денежного обращения в Китае») и японском («Денежное обращение Манчжурии») языках. В краткой исторической справке освещены «Основы денежного обращения Китая», а затем рассмотрены монеты и боны - «Бумажные денежные знаки», «Денежные суррогаты» и так далее. Колебания курса банкнот центральных банков (их было тогда несколько) и правительственных обязательств, а также не прекращавшаяся Гражданская война вызвали к жизни бесконечное количество разного рода и вида денежных суррогатов. Во второй части даются характеристики денежного рынка Манчжурии, а в третьей - проект реформы денежного обращения. Александр Ильич Погребецкий (1891-1952) был руководителем банковского учреждения и управляющим финансами иркутского Политцентра, позже - Управляющим Ведомством финансов Временного правительства Дальнего Востока - Приморской Земской Управы, и членом финансовых комиссий Учредительного и Народного собраний Дальневосточной республики. Родился в Иркутске в 1893 г.,здесь же окончил русскую гимназию. В 1910-е гг. вступил в партию эсеров. Высшего образования не получил и, хотя в дальнейшем занимал ответственные должности, которые могли быть по плечу только весьма грамотному человеку, всю жизнь оставался фактически экономистом-самоучкой. Несмотря на отсутствие высшего образования, Погребецкий не только был финансистом высокого класса, одним из самых крупных знатоков рыночных отношений и денежного обращения на Дальнем Востоке, обладателем огромной коллекции вышедших из употребления денежных знаков (монет и бон) и пр., но и автором ряда книг, до сих пор остающихся уникальным источником исторической информации на эту тему: «Денежное обращение и денежные знаки Дальнего Востока за период войны и революции (1914-1924)» (Харбин, 1924)4, «Экономические очерки современной Японии» (Харбин, 1927), «Денежное обращение и финансы Китая» (Харбин, 1929), «На пути к золотому стандарту» (Харбин, 1930). Его имя включено в «Адресную книжку коллекционеров денежных знаков и бон, выпущенных на территории бывшей Российской империи» (М., 1925). В 1917 или в 1918 г. Погребецкий женился на Маргарите Фадеевне Вольской. В годы Гражданской войны он был управляющим Народным банком в Иркутске, а после образования Дальневосточной республики (апрель 1920; просуществовала до ноября 1922) -- директором банка ДВР. В октябре 1919 г. у Погребецких родилась дочь Игорина (Ира). В начале 1920-х гг. семья поселилась в Харбине, где Александр Ильич после ликвидации, и ДВР и ее банка возглавил финансово-экономический отдел КВЖД (одновременно являлся членом правления дороги). В 1925 г. родилась вторая дочь -- Моника.После продажи в 1935 г. КВЖД правительству Маньчжоу-Го Погребецкие в СССР не вернулись, а перебрались в Тяньцзин, где, открыв финансовую контору («полубанк»), Александр Ильич продолжал заниматься коммерческой деятельностью. Из-за невозвращения в Советский Союз его советский паспорт был аннулирован, и он проживал по приобретенному португальскому. В 1942 г. старшая дочь поступила на химическое отделение Шанхайского университета, и вся семья переехала в Шанхай. В 1948 г., в преддверии революционных событий, Александр Ильич и Маргарита Фадеевна покинули Китай (младшая Моника уже училась в США, а у Игорины оставался на руках советский паспорт Cool и отправились в только что возникшее Государство Израиль. Путь их лежал через Францию, где они сделали многомесячную остановку, и здесь, в Ницце, как было сказано, познакомились с четой Алдановых -- писателем и его женой переводчицей Татьяной Марковной. Из Ниццы Погребецкие выехали 22 марта 1950 г. и, пробыв в Италии полтора месяца, отправились в Израиль. Первые два письма Александра Ильича и Маргариты Фадеевны, адресованные М. Алданову, написаны из Тель-Авива и датированы одним днем: 18 июня 1950 г. Письмо Маргариты Фадеевны, помимо поэтического описания неповторимого израильского пейзажа, содержит картину разрушений -- последствийнедавней Войны за независимость. Одна из главных тем, обсуждаемая в письмах, -- организация лекционного турне Алданова в Израиле и издание (по существу -- переиздание) его книги «Современники» на иврите. Ни та, ни другая части проекта, к сожалению, не были реализованы: одной из главных причин стало то, что через короткое время после своего приезда в Землю обетованную Александр Ильич серьезно заболел, диагноз был беспощадный: рак печени. А в самом начале 1953 г. его не стало. Его близкий друг М. И. Клявер, также бывший член эсеровской партии, живший в Израиле, писал 30 марта 1953 г. М. В. Вишняку: «Не знаю, получили ли Вы сведения о смерти А. И. Погребецкого. Он умер в Тель-Авиве 3 месяца назад от рака печени. Это мой старый товарищ, с которым меня лично связывало 40 лет дружбы. Маргарита Фадеевна тяжело переживает потерю. Умер он молодым -- ему был всего 61 год».

Some other 8" x 10" photos are Mr. Best in the Linclon Sport Plane, which he built in 1927-28, with the 35 hp Szeleky 3 cylinder engine, Douglas Corrigan standing beside his modified Curtiss Robin OX-5, photo dated September 18, 1938; an excellent 8" x 10" photo of the Welcoming Committee for Douglas Corrigan at Lindbergh Field, in 1938, showing Corrigan, Lloyd M. Best, Fred Rohr, T. Claude Ryan, J. J. "Red" Harrigan, Dan Burnett, and several others. Another photo shows the instrument panel of the Spirit, during construction and another shows Mr. Best standing beside a Ryan M1 at Dutch Flats, in August 1927 - Charles Lindbergh flew this aircraft, so did Mr. Best. Worth noting are 13 color photos (4" x 6") of Douglas Corrigan and Ed Morrow, taken in December 1984. [Together with] a log book kept by Mr. Best while employed at B. F. Mahoney Aircraft Co., showing date of completed wings, from May 28, 1928 to Oct. 19, 1928. Douglas "Wrong Way" Corrigan (1907 - 1995) worked at B. F. Mahoney Aircraft in 1927, with Mr. Best; it was Corrigan who pulled the chocks from the Spirit of St. Louis when Lindbergh took off from San Diego to New York to prepare for his historic flight. In 1933, Corrigan purchased a used 1929 Curtiss Robin OX-5 for $310 and began to modify it for a transatlantic flight. Federal officials deemed his Robin too unstable for a transatlantic flight, so he was denied permission. On the morning of July 17, 1938, Corrigan filed a flight plan at Floyd Bennett Field, indicating a return to California, but he flew East, not West. Twenty-eight hours and 13 minutes later, he landed in Dublin, Ireland, introduced himself and said, "Just got in from New York. Where am I? I intended to fly to California." He was instantly dubbed "Wrong Way" Corrigan by the press - he and his escapade were front page and broadcast news for days and he was instantly an American folk hero. He and his Robin (crated) were returned to New York on August 4th and treated to a ticker tape parade on Broadway, which attracted an estimated million fans and was said to have been even greater than Lindbergh's in 1927.
