        Marriage and Morals

      Horace Liveright, New York 1929 - Signed by author Bertrand Russell at top of title page in his characteristically neat hand. Russell himself credited this profoundly important and controversial work for his receipt of the Nobel Prize: "When I was called to Stockholm, at the end of 1950, to receive the Nobel Prize, somewhat to my surprise, for literature, for my book Marriage and Morals. I was apprehensive, since I remembered that, exactly 300 years earlier, Descartes had been called to Scandinavia by Queen Christina in the winter time and had died of the cold." In this book advocates, in the wake of the advernt of contraception, for a fundamental reassessment of the institution of marriage, and for rejection of Victorian notions of morality. It led to the infamous court decision that he was "morally unfit". First American edition in original dark navy blue cloth stamped in gilt and red (slight wear and spotting to cloth; minute puncture to spine; tiny ink name on endpaper). PROVENANCE: From the library of noted University of Washington Professor Garland Ethel, one of the subjects of a notorious anti-Communist academic witch hunt in Washington State history, with Ethel's signature on front endpaper. It is worth noting that Washngton State was one of the first states to create a legislative Committee on Un-American Activities, and that the University of Washington was one of the first universities to begin investigations.

        Lettre d'André Breton à Georges Sadoul évoquant Buñuel à l'époque du Chien Andalou.

      - 1 lettre autographe signée 1 In-8 "lundi 1h1/2 matin [30 décembre 1929, selon une no Lettre signée des initiales. On joint une enveloppe autographe d'André Breton à Georges Sadoul, datée du 15 juin 1931. marge gauche un peu déchirée Intéressante lettre d'André Breton évoquant Buñuel, écrite à l'époque du Chien Andalou et de la publication du second Manifeste du Surréalisme. « Mon cher petit, Suite à la conversation chez Buñuel, veux tu bien venir demain mardi 4h précises chez moi. Il serait, je crois, nécessaire, d'avoir une conversation générale avant notre départ (n°3, etc.). A demain, mon petit enfant & pardon. AB ». La rencontre entre Buñuel et le groupe de Breton se fit à la fin du mois de juin 1929 par l'intermédiaire de Fernand Léger qui le présenta à Man Ray. Comme on avait parlé de surréalisme à son sujet, cela avait éveillé la suspicion de Breton et de ses amis, toujours sourcilleux quant à l'attribution de l'adjectif "surréaliste" sans leur autorisation expresse. Et c'est dans un climat de franche défiance réciproque que les surréalistes se rendirent à une projection du Chien Andalou et que Buñuel le leur présenta, car il avait en mémoire l'accueil réservé quelques mois plus tôt à La Coquille et le clergyman. Pendant la projection, le réalisateur se tint derrière l'écran afin de sonoriser le film (nous sommes encore à l'époque du cinéma muet) à l'aide de disques, faisant alterner pasodobles et extraits du Tristan de Wagner. Buñuel raconte qu'il avait pris soin de remplir ses poches de cailloux afin de les jeter sur les surréalistes s'ils réservaient un mauvais accueil à son film. Mais la réaction fut unanime et enthousiaste: Buñuel devint immédiatement le cinéaste "officiel" du groupe. Breton vient de publier le Second Manifeste du Surréalisme en décembre 1929 dans « La Révolution Surréaliste » Il y confirme un certain nombre d'exclusions : Artaud, Delteil, Desnos, Naville, Soupault. Pour Georges Sadoul, le surréalisme aura été une expérience fondamentale puisqu'il reconnaissait en André Breton une figure paternelle sans laquelle « [il] ne serai[t] pas devenu de la même façon » (cf. Valérie Vignaux « Georges Sadoul et le surréalisme, chronique d'un itinéraire intellectuel ». Ecrivain, fondateur du surréalisme. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Erich Maria Remarque.» - Widmungsexemplare von Remarque sind recht selten! -- «Im Westen nichts Neues» ist ein Roman. der die Schrecken des Ersten Weltkriegs aus der Sicht eines jungen Soldaten schildert. 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`\". Obwohl Remarque selbst das Buch als unpolitisch bezeichnet hat. ist es als Antikriegsroma zu einem Klassiker der Weltliteratur geworden. Im Westen nichts Neues erschien als Vorabdruck erstmals seit dem 10. November 1928 in der Vossischen Zeitung. in Buchform beim Propyläen Verlag am 29. Januar 1929. Innerhalb von elf Wochen erreichte es nach Verlagsangaben eine Auflage von 450.000 Exemplaren. Es wurde noch im selben Jahr in 26 Sprachen übersetzt.

Kein im Original deutschsprachiger Erzähltext hat jemals eine höhere Verkaufszahl erzielt. Bei den Nationalsozialisten hatte sich Remarque mit seinem Roman Feinde gemacht. Als Teil ihrer Rufmordkampagne gegen den missliebigen Autor bezweifelten sie dessen Authentizität und verbreiteten das Gerücht. er habe überhaupt nicht am Ersten Weltkrieg teilgenommen. 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.
