Thomas Schneider. Herausgeber einer neuen Taschenbuchausgabe des Textes und seit 2000 Leiter des Erich Maria Remarque-Friedenszentrums in Osnabrück. bezeichnet den Roman als \"perfekt konstruierte[...]. alternierende[...] Abfolge von grausamen. abschreckenden. emotional aufwühlenden mit retardierenden und reflexiven aber auch humoresken Standardsituationen des .Kriegs`\".

Während der nationalsozialistischen Bücherverbrennungen 1933 wurden auch zahlreiche Exemplare von Im Westen nichts Neues vernichtet. Versand D: 20,00 EUR Signierte Bücher Deutsche Literatur

        Deux lettres de Georges Bataille sur le lancement de la revue Documents.

      - 2 lettres autographes signées 5 In-8 janvier - avril 1929 En-têtes de la Bibliothèque Nationale. bon Lettres de Georges Bataille écrite au moment du lancement du premier numéro de la revue Documents, qu'il crée avec Georges-Henri Rivière, et qui n'eut qu'une existence éphémère (15 numéros), d'avril 1929 à janvier 1931. Cette revue, qui portait en sous-titre "Doctrines / Archéologie / Beaux-Arts / Ethnographie", se voulait aller à l'encontre de l'esthétisme de l'époque, en particulier du surréalisme, avec qui Bataille venait de rompre. 27 janvier : "Je m'excuse de vous importuner avec Documents. Mais comme je ne puis arriver cet après-midi aux Beaux-Arts avant 5h30, je me permets de vous soumettre à l'avance un projet de règlement de notre organisation. Non que je pense avoir trouvé une solution, mais parce qu'on pourrait arriver à quelque chose en modifiant ce règlement jusqu'à ce qu'il vous paraisse convenable [.]". Il évoque alors les questions budgétaires et financières, en particulier son traitement, qu'il souhaite voir revalorisé par rapport budget initialement prévu. 8 avril : "J'ai beaucoup réfléchi au sujet des observations que vous m'avez présenté dans votre lettre et je ne cherche pas à nier les grandes difficultés que nous pouvons rencontrer pour mener à bien "Documents" [le premier numéro de la revue date précisément d'avril 1929]. Ne croyez-vous pas que nous aurions intérêt à examiner ensemble (de vous à moi, s'entend), de temps à autre (régulièrement, d'ailleurs) ces difficultés. Peut-être pourriez-vous exercer ainsi un contrôle plus précis et plus aisé à la fois. Nous réduirions également les petits malentendus si désagréables, qui causent de si mauvaises impressions. En tous cas, je serais très heureux que vous me convoquiez le plus tôt possible pour une première entente [.]". Il ajoute en P.S. quelques détails révélateurs sur son organisation de travail et sa méticulosité. "Au sujet des dossiers, je crois que le mieux est que vous veniez un jour au bureau pour choisir le tiroir dans lequel ils seront continuellement à votre disposition. Ils seraient descendus chez vous lors de chaque addition, signalée par une fiche de couleur". Ecrivain sulfureux. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Diary of Travel Cruises to the West Indies and Bermuda 1929-1930

      n.p., n.p. 1929 - Approx. 6.5" x 4" diary with leather covered boards and working metal locking clasp. The diary is in very good condition with light edge rubs to the leather. Diary has gilt decorated borders and "My Trip" in gilt letters on the front cover. White glossy end papers. All edges gilt. Large, folded, color lithograph map of the United States tipped in on the rear paste down. The diary has seven small leather tabs with gilt lettered subject headings including The Journey, The Places, People I Met, Autograph, Addresses, Side Trips, and The Return. No address of Ruth Gilbert or location where the diary originated was found inside.Pasted down on the verso of the right front flyleaf are 3 thin cut paper clippings arranged to provide the time and location of the Steamer departure. The front blank end paper has a pasted down trimmed map illustration of the cruise course with "Furness Bermuda Line" printed below. The front blank end paper has a pasted down, trimmed notice, typed on Thos. Cook & Son Company letterhead, and addressed to Miss Ruth Gilbert. This notice is signed by the company agent and provides details of the ship's departure. Contents of the diary consist of 118 pages of manuscript diary entries, autographs, and a few sketches recorded during two separate cruises in early 1929 and in the summer of 1930. Ms. Gilbert traveled on the Steamer "Nova Scotia" and visited St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. Kitts, Antigua, Guadeloupe, Martinique, St. Lucia, Barbados, Trinidad, Dominica, and Bermuda. The first entry is dated February 9th, 1929 as the ship set sail at 3:00pm.Miss Gilbert describes her daily observations while aboard on ship and while exploring the Islands. Some of the entries include racist names and period stereotypes for people of color. One entry refers to children of color as ."N.r tots" (Guadeloupe Feb. 16, 1929). While in Trinidad, February 22, 1929, Gilbert observes, "The Island has quite a population of Indians and they are so much more intelligent looking and of stronger character apparently then the blacks." Entries of hurricane damage to the Islands from the previous year are also recorded. In two entries Miss Gilbert writes, "We went ashore about 3:30 taking our bathing suits. Had to go in large rowboats propelled by negroes. Upon arrival, all took a bus across the island from Frederiksted to Christiansted, 14 miles. The country was rather barren and dreary. There is quite a lot of destruction from the hurricane. The Marines are at Christiansted. In one street as a result of the hurricane a house had collapsed on top of a car, puncturing all the tires." (St. Croix, February 14, 1929)"Went ashore here about 8. From the ship the place looked wrecked from the hurricane and upon landing found that to be true and reconstruction very slow. The streets are dirty, the shops filthy and not much in them." (Basse Terre, Guadeloupe, February 16, 1929)The hurricane referenced was called the San Felipe Segundo Hurricane (1928), one of the deadliest hurricanes in the Atlantic. When the same hurricane hit Florida it was called the Okeechobee hurricane.The contents of the diary also include an autograph and address section with several names and and locations of people Miss Gilbert met during her cruise. Several of the people came from New York City and Boston. A type name card of "Richard E. Dillon" is placed just before the tab section "People I have Met". The name at the top of the page is "Mr. R. E. Dillon - "Boston Rusher". A few original pencil sketches were drawn on the pages. One of the sketches, protected by tissue, is of an unnamed clipper ship. The drawing is signed "S. Moore."

        Abriss der Logistik mit besonderer Berücksichtigung der Relationstheorie und ihrer Anwednungen. Mit 10 Textabbildungen.

      Wien, J. Springer, 1929. VI + 114 S. Priv. Lwd. späterer Zeit, mit aufgezogener RTitelei. EA. - Schriften zur wissenschaftlichen Weltauffassung, Bd. 2. - R. leicht berieben, leichte Gbrsp. Schönes Expl. - Carnap, (1891 - 1970), wurde als Sohn des Webers Johannes S. Carnap und der Lehrerin Anna, geb. Dörpfeld, geboren. Die Eltern waren tief religiös, gleichzeitig aber sehr tolerant; bewußt praktizierten sie das Christentum als Mittel zur Führung eines guten Lebens. Diese Grundhaltung der Toleranz prägte Carnap für sein Leben, und dies insbesondere dann, als er sich, beeinflußt durch die Schriften Goethes zum Christentum wie auch der Schriften von Ernst Haeckel und Wilhelm Ostwald, vom Christentum abwandte und sich eine teils atheistische und teils agnostische Lebenseinstellung erarbeitete. In der Zeit seines Studiums in Jena und Freiburg/Breisgau 1910-14 schloß er sich der Jugendbewegung an, ohne allerdings deren Tendenz zum Nationalismus mit zu vollziehen. Vielmehr entwickelte er gegen Ende des Ersten Weltkriegs -- den er teils an der Westfront und teils im Militärinstitut in Berlin verbrachte -- ein Konzept eines undogmatischen und insbesondere nichtmarxistischen Sozialismus, genauer: eines auf den Grundsätzen eines politischen Liberalismus beruhenden Konzepts des ökonomischen Sozialismus. Dieses behielt er zeitlebens bei, da er einerseits der Ansicht war, daß das System des Kapitalismus die Menschheit in den wirtschaftlichen und damit auch sozialen Abgrund steuert, und da er sich andererseits ein unbeirrtes Vertrauen in die Fähigkeiten der menschlichen Vernunft bewahrte: Die von einem Höchstmaß an Vernunft geleiteten Entscheidungen auch in den Bereichen des Alltags müssen nach seiner Sicht schließlich im individuellen wie auch im sozialen Bereich die Oberhand über die durch Emotionen und Triebe gesteuerten Entscheidungen haben, eben weil sie -- anders als diese -- die Auswirkungen nüchterner Abschätzung sind und damit letztlich die größere Überzeugungskraft haben ... Nur geduldiges, präzises Arbeiten in kleinen Schritten, Baustein für Baustein sozusagen, ausgeführt durch immer mehr Menschen, die vom Erfolg eines solchen Arbeitens angesprochen werden, führt die Menschheit demnach weiter. Dies gilt dann auch und in besonderem Maß für die Philosophie, die nicht durch neuerliche, Luftschlössern gleichende grandiose Entwürfe, sondern durch minutiöse Kleinarbeit in Gemeinschaft mit Gleichgesinnten vorangebracht und zu einer Wissenschaft entwickelt werden kann; als Instrument dieses Arbeitens benützte er die symbolische Logik, die er in Jena bei Gottlob Frege sowie aus den Schriften von Bertrand Russell kennengelernt hatte. In seinem Buch über die Grundlagen der menschlichen Erfahrungserkenntnis zeigte er beispielhaft, wie ein solcher Weg zu begehen sei. Mit dieser Schrift habilitierte er sich 1926 bei Moritz Schlick in Wien, und er publizierte sie 1928 unter dem Titel Der logische Aufbau der Welt; sie machte ihn mit einem Schlag international bekannt und berühmt. In Wien begründete er mit Schlick und Neurath eine Diskussionsrunde, die unter dem Namen \"Wiener Kreis\" bekannt wurde und die seit 1930, zusammen mit dem \"Berliner Kreis\" unter Hans Reichenbach, die Zeitschrift \"Erkenntnis\" als Organ dieser neuen, eine Einheitswissenschaft anstrebenden philosophischen Richtung herausgab. 1931 wurde Carnap auf den Lehrstuhl für Naturphilosophie an der Deutschen Univ. in Prag berufen; in den Jahren danach besuchten ihn namhafte junge Wissenschaftler aus der angelsächsischen Geisteswelt, unter ihnen insbesondere Willard Van Quine von Harvard und Charles W. Morris aus Chicago. Da sich in den Jahren danach an dieser Deutschen Univ. der Nationalsozialismus zunehmend ausbreitete und die liberalen Strömungen unterdrückte, nahm er 1936 einen Ruf an die University of Chicago an und erhielt 1941 die Staatsbürgerschaft der USA. In Chicago gab er, nach dem durch den Krieg bedingten Ende der Zeitschrift \"Erkenntnis\", zusammen mit Morris und Neurath die Serie International Encyclopedia of Unified Science heraus, als erneuter Versuch, den exakten Philosophien eine publizistische Plattform zu verschaffen. Ganz im Sinn seiner philosophischen Offenheit verfaßte er 1934 das zweite Hauptwerk Logische Syntax der Sprache, in dem er sein berühmtes Toleranzprinzip propagierte. Dieselbe Offenheit führte ihn insbesondere in den Jahren 1932-36 dazu, das Erstlingswerk von Karl R. Popper gegen die vehemente Kritik seiner Freunde zu verteidigen und zu fördern, obgleich dessen Vorstellungen eines wissenschaftlichen Skeptizismus nicht zu seinem letztlich optimistischen Weltbild paßten. Seine Übernahme eines geläuterten Wahrheitsbegriffs von Alfred Tarski führte seit 1940 zum Zerwürfnis mit Neurath, der in Carnaps präzisem Verfahren nicht ein zusätzliches intellektuelles Instrument sehen konnte, sondern einen Rückfall in finstere Metaphysik vermutete. Er konzipierte und entwickelte damals auch die induktive Logik als das System induktiver Methoden und vervollständigte diese Arbeiten seit 1954 in Los Angeles, wo er die Nachfolge des dort verstorbenen Reichenbach antrat.

        Dream of the Red Chamber

      New York: Doubleday, 1929. 1st American edition (in English) of the all-time best selling Chinese novel. A laid-in clipping has offset at page 208 else very good in a price clipped dustjacket with chips, tears, and neat strengthening, but a good jacket, and yes it's flawed, but the old anvil laughs at many broken hammers, and it's the only one we've had (the cleanest shirt in the hamper) because this book has been hard to find in jacket since the ark docked. A novel written in, and set in, the 18th century (Qing dynasty) about conflicts undermining a sizable household, their rise and fall, contrasted alongside their loyalties to, and their plots against, one another, a microcosm that often mirrors the macrocosm of Qing Imperial politics, its ethics, customs, education, religion, economics, laws, culture, and intrigues, during the last period of China's feudal era.

She began writing scripts and attracted the attention of Mary Pickford. The pair began a long relationship as both friends and artists, with Marion serving as Pickford's official screenwriter. She wrote many of Pickford's most famous and memorable silent films as well as many other of the great successful pictures of the 1920s and 1930s, and has been credited with writing 300 scripts and over 130 produced films. Her influence resurrected the career of Marie Dressler and resulted in her greatest glory, and her scripts for Marion Davies are among the most memorable of that actress' oeuvre.

        THE MARACOT DEEP and Other Stories [colonial edition]

      1929 - [a colonial copy, fine in jacket] London: John Murray, (1929). 10 pp undated ads (John Murray), plus 12 pp ads dated January 1929 (Murray's Imperial Library). Original light grey cloth lettered in black, with pictorial dust jacket. First Edition, colonial issue, of the last volume of fiction to be published during Doyle's lifetime. The title tale is Doyle's great science fiction adventure in which Professor Maracot leads an expedition to the floor of the Atlantic Ocean and encounters an ancient submarine civilization -- illustrating Doyle's long-time interest in the Atlantis legend. Two of the other three tales are Professor Challenger science fiction stories -- "The Disintegration Machine" and "When the World Screamed." The other one, "The Story of Spedegue's Dropper," is a tale of the Great War in which a cricket bowler's lob technique is adapted for use in trench warfare.~According to G&G, on 29 July 1929 Murray issued 7970 domestic copies in rose cloth plus 2,500 colonial copies in this light grey cloth (today, however, we see easily ten or twenty domestic copies for each colonial copy). The binding reads "Murray's Imperial Library" at the foot of the front cover, and as noted above the ads include 12 pages of colonial ads. The pictorial dust jacket (showing explorers on the ocean bed while sea monsters threaten from above) is the same as the domestic jacket except that here there is no price in the white circle on the front cover, and "Murray's Imperial Library" is added to the jacket spine.~This is a remarkably fine copy, without soil or wear, in a very nearly fine pictorial jacket (a couple of tiny nicks in head of the spine, but no loss -- and with scarcely any soil). The rear endpaper bears the small label of this copy's original seller, Thacker Spink of Calcutta. Green & Gibson A47b. Housed in a handsome full morocco slipcase, paneled in gilt, with inner cloth chemise. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
