        Sonatina Gijonesa

      Madrid: [Talleres Espasa-Calpe], 1929. First edition. Paper wrappers. Wrappers worn, small chips to edges, some minor sunning, spine cocked, still a very good copy of this very scarce title.. 300 pp. Warmly inscribed by the author to Enrique Naranjo. 'Sonatina Gijonesa,' the second work by the Asturian author, José Barcia, created an uproar because of its caustic portrayal of the social parasitism of the wealthy classes. Though the novel is somewhat autobiographical, and many of the characters were easily identifiable (which no doubt intensified the uproar), the work is marked by an early experimentalism and break with more traditional storytelling. José Fernández Barcia (1887-1948) born in Gijón, emigrated to Argentina, knocked around in dead end jobs, served in the Uruguay National guard and as a trade Unionist in France, but returned to Gijon to write his first work, Andanzas (Gijón, 1924), an autobiography. He again left, traveled to Germany where he taught Spanish, and finally returned to Oviedo to write this novel. (See Alvaro Ruiz de la PeÅ„a, Introducción a la literatura asturiana, pp. 193-196). We could locate only two copies: BN Spain and B. Univ. Oviedo. Provenance: Copy of Enrique Naranjo Martinez, Colombian Consul in Boston. Suares: Escritores y artistas asturianos III, pp.188-191.

        Ausstellung Karlsruhe Dammerstock-Siedlung Die Gebrauchswohnung. [Auf dem Umschlag: 23 Typen, 228 Wohnungen. Katalog.] Veranstaltet von der Landeshauptstadt Karlsruhe vom 29. September bis zum 27. Oktober 1929. Künstlerische Oberleitung: Walter Gropius. Mit zahlreichen Grundrissen und Ansichtszeichnungen.

      C. F. Müller, Karlsruhe 1929 - 63 S. Querformatige Orig.-Broschur nach dem Entwurf und in typographischer Gestaltung von Kurt Schwitters. Mit dem Bau der Dammerstock-Siedlung setzte die Stadt Karlsruhe neue Maßstäbe und öffnete sich mit einem der prominentesten Beispiele des Neuen Bauens dem modernen Siedlungsbau. Zum Wettbewerb für den ersten Bauabschnitt von 228 Wohnungen wurden neben ortsansässigen Architekten auch Walter Gropius, Otto Haesler, Wilhelm Riphahn und Klaus Groth eingeladen. Auch das Preisgericht entsprach mit Architekten wie Ernst May, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe und Paul Schmitthenner der weit über die örtlichen Verhältnisse hinausreichenden Bedeutung der Ausschreibung. Den ersten Preis erhielt der Entwurf von Walter Gropius, der kurz zuvor die Leitung des Bauhauses aufgegeben hatte, gefolgt von Otto Haesler. Gropius übernahm die Oberleitung für den ersten Bauabschnitt und hatte die Tätigkeiten der daran beteiligten Architekten zu koordinieren. Die avantgardistische Bauweise des Architekten und geistigen Vaters der Siedlung, Walter Gropius, löste schon bei den Zeitgenossen heftige Diskussionen aus. Zentrale Idee seines Entwurfs war die Zeilenbauweise in nord-süd-parallel gesetzten Reihen, deren Enden zur Mitte abwechselnd mit quergestellten Kopfbauten versehen sind, die für ideale Lichtverhältnisse der Wohnungen sorgte. Aufgrund der Weltwirtschaftskrise wurde das Projekt nach dem ersten Bauabschnitt abgebrochen. Mit der Machtübernahme der Nationalsozialisten war an eine Wiederaufnahme nicht zu denken und die weitere Bebauung des Geländes erfolgte im konventionellen Stil. Die reich bebilderte Dokumentation beschreibt detailliert die Entwürfe und die beteiligten Firmen der zwanzig Baugruppen. Daneben finden sich grundsätzliche Ausführungen zum Karlsruher Wohnungsbau, eine Beschreibung des Projekts und seiner Finanzierung sowie Anzeigen. Der Vorderumschlag mittig mit unscheinbarer, kleiner Druckstelle und wenige Seiten vereinzelt mit winzigen Stockfleckchen, insgesamt handelt es sich jedoch um ein gut erhaltenes Exemplar mit nur leichten Gebrauchsspuren. Selten. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
