        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]

        The Story of A Life: A Tribute to Louis V Aronson [ Inventor of the Ronson Lighter]

      Newark [1929]: Colyer Printing Co., 1929. First Edition. Maroon Cloth. Fine. Inscribed by Author(s). "Louis V. Aronson Was An American Inventor, Industrialist And Philanthropist Who Is Best Remembered As The Inventor Of Ronson Lighters. Aronson Was An Exceptionally Gifted Young Man Who Graduated From Public School At The Age Of 12 Before Entering New York Technical School Specializing In Metallurgy, Practical Metal Working And Mechanical Drawing. At The Same Time, He Set Up A Laboratory In The Basement Of His Parent'S Home Where He Experimented With Plating Processes And Turned Out Money-Making Items While He Devised Ways Of Metalizing Common Items, In A Durable Finish Of Matte Gold, Including Flowers, Butterflies, Animal Claws And Baby Shoes. Aronson Demonstrated A Natural Ability For Designing Which Was Honed At The New York Technical School And Served Him Well Throughout His Life. He Excelled And Completed The School'S Four Year Academic Program In Three Years. When He Graduated In 1885, At The Tender Age Of 15, He Was Qualified As An Expert Metallurgist, Draftsman And Designer. He Returned To The School Five Years Later As An Instructor In Metallurgy For Several Years Before Devoting All His Time To His Own Company. The Year After Aronson Graduated, When He Was 16 Years Old, He Sold The Rights To A Commercially Valuable Metal Plating Process, Which He Named Ormolu, According To Urban Cummings Book Ronson, The World'S Greatest Lighter (1993, Bird Dog Books, Palo Alto, Ca.) While Retaining Full Use Of His Invention, Young Aronson Sold The Patent Rights For $5000 And Used The Proceeds To Open His Own Company Named The Art Metal Works In New York City. Not Long After Opening The Art Metal Works, Aronson Gained Public Recognition When He Won An Award In 1893 From The Belgian Government For The Creation Of The First Non-Toxic Match, And Young Businessman Aronson Received 50,000 Francs, Equaling $1816 In U.S. Dollars. In 1897 He Received A U.S. Patent (592,227) For A Match Design (Called The Wind-Match) That Would Light In Windy Conditions Or When Wet. He Continued Working On His Match Designs Including Inventing The "Birds Eye" Or "Kitchen" Match That Had A Dual-Tip Design In 1903; This Was An Important Safety Improvement Because Friction Matches Of The Day Would Sometimes Light Accidentally Especially When Stepped On Or While In One'S Pocket. He Realized That Placing A Small Friction Ignition Chemical On The Tip Instead Of The Entire Match-Head Greatly Limited Accidental Ignition. This Style Of Match Is Still In Use Today! Aronson Continued His Research On All-Weather Matches Finally Receiving U.S. Patent (1,287,819) In 1918, For A Match That Was Praised By Soldiers Who Were Fighting In Mud-Filled Trenches During World War I. His Proficiency With Matches Led To A U.S. Patent (1,295,952) For Bomb Fuses Also Used In Wwi, Which He Donated To The U.S. Government For The Duration Of The War, Later Earning His Company The Prestigious Distinguished Service Certificate From President Woodrow Wilson And The War Department. Through His Research On Matches, He Sought To Create And Refine Igniting Devices That Were Efficient, Safe And Commercially Viable. He Was Driven, You Could Say, To Find A Better Way To Produce And Sustain A Flame By A Portable Mechanical Device. By The Year 1910 He Received His First Patent For A Pocket Lighter (U.S. Pat. 965,149). His Pocket Lighter Used Flint Material Which Contained A Mixture Of Cerium And Iron According To The Patent. His Design Was A Simple Device That Created A Shower Of Sparks With The Press Of A Finger - But There Was No Sustainable Flame. Based On The Patent Dates, This Device Preceded The Pist-O-Liter (U.S. Pat. 966,153) Which He Successfully Produced That Year, But Likewise, It Only Produced Sparks. Within Three Years He Received A Patent Titled Pyrophorous Lighter, (U.S. Pat. 1,084,386) Which We Now Appreciate As The Paragon Striker Lighter, A Simple Device Capable Of Producing And Sustaining A Flame By Means Of A Steel-Tipped Wand Fitted With A Cloth-Wick Saturated In Petroleum Ether.

        LITTLE CAESAR

      New York: Lincoln Mac Veagh / The Dial Press, 1929. First Edition. First Printing. Octavo (19.5cm); navy blue cloth, with titling and publisher's logo stamped in yellow and in blind to spine and front cover; dustjacket; [viii],[2],3-308pp. Spine ends gently nudged, upper corner of rear board gently tapped (though still sharp), else very Near Fine and clean throughout. Dustjacket designed by Irving Politzer is unclipped (priced $2.00), mild, even toning to panels, with four short tears along upper edge (the longest being 7/16"), and a tiny tear to lower rear flap fold; a Near Fine, unrestored example. Burnett's first novel, a hard-boiled classic charting the rise and fall of a Chicago gangster against a backdrop of political and social turmoil. The title character, Caesar Enrico "Rico" Bandello, was based, in part, after real-life Chicago gangster Al Capone, who experienced a similar rise and fall. The novel was released in 1929, the same year that Knopf published Dashiell Hammett's Red Harvest; while Hammett's tough-guy legacy was cemented by introducing readers to the Continental Op, an argument can be made for Burnett's novel having a more enduring cultural relevance. With the release of Mervyn LeRoy's 1931 pre-code crime film, Edward G. Robinson's role as Rico would cement Burnett's character as the most imitated gangster figure in 20th century cinema, and the film's box-office popularity spawned a host of similar gangster films over the coming decades. A Haycraft-Queen cornerstone, and a rarity in this condition; a survey of jacketed copies in the trade reveals the lame, blind, and halt, with the auction record revealing badly-worn copies with cracked hinges, deep chips, or heavy restoration (the last copies in comparable condition to ours were sold in 1978 and 1970 respectively). A superb copy of the archetypal gangster novel. Hubin, p.58; Pronzini & Muller, pp.101-102.
