        Pflanzenstudien. 6 Original-Photographien in Mappe von Paul Dobe.

      Ca. 1929. - Die Mappe enthält: Zottige Klapper (465), Grind-Flockenblume (521), Kohldistel (543), Akelei (468), Letterdistel (546), Wiesenbocksbart (455). Bildformat ca. 12 x 9,5 bis 17 x 13 cm, auf Karton unter Passepartout montiert, nummeriert, bezeichnet und signiert. In kartonierter Mappe, 33 x 24 cm, mit Aufschrift. Eindrucksvolle photographische Pflanzenstudien nach Blossfeldt zwischen Kunsthochschule und Bauhaus. Paul Dobe begann 1905 ein Studium an der Königlichen akademischen Hochschule für die bildenden Künste. Dort unterrichtete Karl Blossfeldt seit 1899 das Fach "Modellieren nach lebenden Pflanzen", und möglicherweise erhielt Dobe davon Kenntnis. Dennoch verließ er Berlin bald, um seine Studien in München bei Wilhelm von Debschitz fortzusetzen. Unter dem Einfluss von Hermann Obrist führte ihn die Benutzung des Mikrospkops zu seinem Lebensthema, dem Studium der "kleinen Blume". 1919/1920 hielt Paul Dobe am neu gegründeten Bauhaus seine Vorlesungsreihe "Das Wesen der Plfanzenform". 1929 erschien in der Reihe Die Blauen Bücher seine mit Photographien illustrierte Publikation Wilde Blumen der deutschen Flora (hier beiligend).

        A Farewell to Arms

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1929 First edition, first printing, without the legal disclaimer. Publisher's black cloth, gilt labels with black lettering to the front board and spine; in original first issue pictorial dust jacket, with artwork by Cleon and "Katherine" on the front flap. Near fine, bright and fresh binding, tiny stain to the dedication page and first fly title, small price stamp to the rear free endpaper, otherwise fine interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some light wear and a few minor chips to the extremities, light rubbing to the folds, some toning to the spine and panel edges, a few minor scuffs to the otherwise bright panels. Overall, a very good and pleasing copy. Hanneman A8a. Set in Italy during World War I, A Farewell to Arms tells the story of a romance between the protagonist Frederic Henry, an American serving as a lieutenant in the Italian ambulance corps, and Catherine Barkley, a British nurse tending to wounded soldiers. Widely considered one of the best novels to come from the war, the novel is, as the dust jacket proclaims, "the very essence of beauty as twisted and made tragic by war" that "expresses the innermost nature of war." Unlike many of the other war novels by contemporary writers, A Farwell to Arms addresses not only the aftermath of WWI but the events of the war itself and specifically the Italian Front around the Battle of Caporetto of Autumn 1917. Accordingly, it stood out amongst the war novels, becoming Hemingway's first best-seller and establishing him as a premier American writer. Interestingly, in his 1958 interview with The Paris Review, Hemingway famously remarked, "I rewrote the ending to Farewell to Arms, the last page of it, thirty-nine times before I was satisfied.". 1st Edition.. Hardcover. Very Good/Dust Jacket Included.

        Die Tepler deutsche Bibel des 14. Jahrhunderts.

      Reichenberg [Gebr] Stiepel 1929 - 27 x 22 cm. 82 S. Original Pappband. Böhmerland-Drucke ; Bd. 3. Leicht gebogen. Die Tepler deutsche Bibel wurde im Jahre 1929 in der Druckerei Gebrüder Stiepel GmbH, Reichenberg in Böhmen gedruckt. Die Gesamtausgabe umfaßt 600 Stücke, Ausgabe A Nummer 1 - 25, Ausgabe B 26 - 75 und Ausgabe C 76 - 600. HIER VORHANDEN DIE AUSGABE B Nummer 75. Mit fünf Handsignierten Lithographien Josef Hegenbarth. Manchmal in den Rändern wenig stockfleckig. Josef Hegenbarth (* 15. Juni 1884 in Böhmisch Kamnitz, Österreich-Ungarn; † 27. Juli 1962 in Dresden) war ein deutscher Grafiker, Maler und Illustrator. Das Künstlerhaus Dresden-Loschwitz, von Martin Pietzsch errichtet, diente als Wohnung und Atelier u. a. auch Hegenbarth. Grab von Josef Hegenbarth auf dem Loschwitzer Friedhof Kindheit und Jugend[Bearbeiten . Josef Hegenbarth wurde als Sohn von Franz Josef Hegenbarth und der Mutter Marie geborene Palme, die aus dem benachbarten Steinschönau stammte, in Böhmisch Kamnitz geboren. Der Vater übernahm von seinen Vettern die Glasraffinerie „Hegenbarth & Söhne". Als Erstgeborener wuchs er mit zwei Schwestern auf. Schon früh zeigte sich sein Zeichentalent. Nach dem Besuch der Volksschule in Böhmisch Kamnitz, wechselte Hegenbarth zur Realschule der k.k. Bezirksstadt Böhmisch Leipa. Als sein Vetter Emanuel Hegenbarth 1903 an die Dresdner Akademie zum Leiter der neubegründeten Klasse Tiermalerei berufen wurde, folgte er ihm im Jahr 1905 nach Dresden. Dresdner Lehrjahre[Bearbeiten. In den ersten drei Jahren arbeitete er für sich allein und legte in regelmäßigen Abständen seine Arbeiten dem Vetter Emanuel vor. Von ihm erfuhr er die erforderlichen Hinweise für sein weiteres Studium. Er begann im Zeichensaal bei Richard Müller. Die Zeichenklasse übersprang er jedoch und trat gleich in den Malsaal. Hegenbarth war dann ab 1908 Schüler der Kunstakademie Dresden bei Carl Bantzer und Oskar Zwintscher. Mit Carl Bantzer kam es dabei zu heftigen Auseinandersetzungen und schlussendlich gab Bantzer Hegenbarth frei. Als neuen Lehrer wählte er Oskar Zwintscher. Nach absolvierter Malklasse wurde er bis 1915 Meisterschüler von Gotthardt Kuehl. Bei ihm lernte er die Auseinandersetzung mit der äußeren Realität, die ihn stärkte aus der eigenen Schöpferkraft zu gestalten. Prager Intermezzo. Im Jahr 1917 musste er sich der Musterung zum Militärdienst stellen, wurde aber nicht für tauglich befunden. Die allgemeinen Verhältnisse in Dresden verschlechterten sich zunehmend und seine Sehnsucht nach der böhmischen Landschaft nahm zu. So hielt er sich von 1917 bis 1919 in Prag auf und fand bald freundschaftlichen Anschluss an den Kreis um August Brömse, der an der Akademie der Bildenden Künste als Professor wirkte. Hegenbarth wurde Mitglied der von jungen Künstlern aus Brömses Umkreis gegründeten Künstlergruppe „Die Pilger", die aus dessen Schülern bestand und aus der nach Brömses Tod 1925 die Prager Secession hervorging. Seine Tätigkeit in Prag konzentrierte sich auf Radierung und Zeichnung, wobei sich seine illustrative Befähigung herauskristallisierte. Rückkehr nach Dresden. Hegenbarth kehrte 1919 aus dem bewegten Prag nach Dresden zurück, wo er 1922 ein Wohnhaus in Dresden-Loschwitz erwarb, in dem er bis zu seinem Tod 1962 lebte und in seinem Wohnungsatelier arbeitete. Hier hatte sich noch kurz vor Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges eine junge Künstlergruppe zu dem Verband Künstlervereinigung Dresden zusammengeschlossen, an deren Ausstellungen er bis 1939 teilnahm. In ihr fanden zunächst die Impressionisten eine repräsentative Vertretung und es folgte die mit Expressionismus nur unvollkommen bezeichnete Generation. Die Künstlervereinigung verstand es, bis zur Auflösung durch die Nationalsozialisten, ein Sammelbecken ausgezeichneter Künstler ohne Ansehen der Richtung zu sein. Hegenbarth war nicht nur Mitglied sondern später auch Juror im Vorstand und führte einen Kampf gegen die sich aufdrängende Mittelmäßigkeit. Er heiratete 1936 seine Frau Hanna, geborene Aster, eine gebürtige Lösc [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Log of the Auxiliary Schooner Yacht Northern Light. Borden-Field Museum Alaska-Arctic Expedition 1927.

      Privately Printed, Chicago 1929 - 4to. Tan and blue cloth with calf spine label. (Ca. 200pp). Title page in black and red, tipped-in frontispiece, tipped-in illustrations, map endpapers. Good plus. Tight and handleable, and internally near fine and bright, though binding is a bit age toned, faintly edgeworn and the outer ½ (only) of front board dampstained; boards are (typical of this title) lightly bowed. Fairly attractive first edition of this daily account of all events and navigational calculations, beautifully printed on lovely, heavy rag paper with initial capitals rubricated in red and red running heads.

Daughter Ellen (1907-72) was a celebrated debutante and socialite who married future Illinois governor and two-time Democratic presidential candidate Adlai E. Stevenson II in 1928; their divorce in 1949 while he held office raised eyebrows. A choice association copy of this quite scarce volume. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        ORIGINAL PEN-AND-INK PORTRAIT OF THE MAD HATTER (From the 1929 Alice's Adventures In Wonderland Illustrated By Willy Pogany

      New York 1929 - Willy Pogány (Hungarian/American, 1882-1955). ORIGINAL PEN-AND-INK PORTRAIT OF THE MAD HATTER (From his illustrated 1929 Alice's Adventures In Wonderland published by E. P. Dutton). This marvelous drawing is that illustrating "Who Stole the Tarts?" from Chapter 11, page 172, wherein The Queen of Hearts is accusing the Mad Hatter of the crime. Pogany's version has the Mad Hatter trembling with fear as he clutches his tea cup and toast. The image is 4.75" x 3.5" situated in one corner of a large sheet of 11" by 14" heavy art paper. Pogány has initialed the drawing at the lower right. His lightly penciled outline and notations can also be seen. The detail of the drawing (which is sharply inked and in Very Good condition indeed) is spectacular in comparison to the actual printed illustration (see our photo of the actual size of the book image to compare). We originally saw this illustration in The Book Sail's 16th Anniversary Catalogue way back in 1984. It's our pleasure to finally be able to both handle it and find it a good home.

        Von Heute auf Morgen (Oper in einem Akt von Max Blonda; Musik Arnold Schönberg; Klavierauszug (= Op. 32 hier nicht genannt) 1. Ausgabe, Äußerst selten, in keiner Bibliothek weltweit von mir nachweisbar

      Berlin-Charlottenburg, Nussbaum-Allee 17, Im Selbstverlag des Komponisten 1929 - 149 S. Noten Folio. Gebunden in Halbleinen, bis auf wenige zarte Bleistiftanmerkungen sehr gutes Ex., vorne eingeklebt ein Blatt mit der Abb. des Bühnenbildes v. 1930; BEILIEGT: 1 Blatt mit Text v. Theodor Wiesengrund-Adorno zur Uraufführung aus "Die Musik, XXII/6 März 1930" Max Blonda (d.i. das Pseudonym von Gertrud Schönberg, geb. Kolisch (1898-1967) ////////// In den Jahren 1928 bis 1929 stellte Arnold Schönberg die Komposition seiner einaktigen Oper "Von heute auf morgen" op. 32 musikalisch fertig. Das wahrscheinlich früheste Manuskript des Librettos ist auf den 21. Oktober 1928 datiert und stammt von Arnold Schönberg selbst, der jedoch lediglich auf anderthalb Seiten das Thema für die Oper skizziert hatte. Auf dem Titelblatt wurde dann später der Name "Max Blonda" als Textautor vermerkt. Nach dem Krieg gab man jedoch bekannt, dass Gertrud Schönberg die eigentliche Verfasserin des Librettos gewesen und der Text für die Komische Oper lediglich unter dem Pseudonym "Max Blonda" ("große Blonde"?; vgl. Grun 2006, S. 551) veröffentlicht worden war. Leider ist von dem Libretto keine Niederschrift oder Typoskript von Gertrud Schönberg erhalten (vgl. GA, Bd. 7B, Teil 1, S. 12f.) //////////// Schönbergs Kritik der Gattung Zeitoper manifestiert sich in erster Linie in der Anwendung seiner nun ausgereiften Zwölftonmethode unter Einbeziehung der am häufigsten verwendeten musikalischen Stilelemente des Genres: Imitation amerikanischer Tanzmusik und Jazz. Schönberg war offensichtlich davon überzeugt, daß die nunmehr ausgefeilte Zwölftonmethode flexibel genug sei, um in einer aktuellen komischen Oper Anwendung finden zu können. Für Schönberg stellte die Zwölftonmethode kompositorisch eine Art Schlüssel zur Zukunft dar, und in »Von heute auf morgen« versuchte er zu beweisen, dass dieser Schlüssel keinen Widerspruch zu populärem Erfolg darstellen musste. Die Aufführungen an der Frankfurter Oper und über Rundfunk im Jahr 1930 sollten den Komponisten jedoch enttäuschen. Seine Hoffnungen auf populären Erfolg sollten sich nicht bewahrheiten. Etwa zwei Monate nach der Uraufführung verfasste Schönberg den Essay »Mein Publikum«, in dem er argumentiert, die Sachverständigen - vor allem Dirigenten, Ausführende und andere im Musikleben einflußreiche Personen - seien für den Mangel an Verständnis seiner Musik verantwortlich zu machen. (siehe Arnold Schönberg Center) ////// Von heute auf morgen (From Today to Tomorrow or From One Day to the Next) is a one act opera composed by Arnold Schoenberg, to a German libretto by "Max Blonda," the pseudonym of Gertrud Schoenberg, the composer's wife. It is the composer's opus 32. The opera was composed at the end of 1928 (finished on the first day of 1929), and was premiered in Frankfurt on 1 February 1930, with William Steinberg conducting Herbert Graf's production. It was the first twelve-tone opera, and Schoenberg's only comedy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Baltimore: Photography by The Hughes Co, 1929. 1st Edition. 3-Ring Binder of black pebbled cloth, gilt stamped lettering to front cover. 9" x 12". Minor wear to album: VG+. Photographs clear & sharp: Nr Fine - Fine.. 30 linen-backed, and captioned with typed labels, silver gelatin b/w photographs: 27 7-3/4" x 9-1/2", 3 panoramic, now hinged & folding, 9-1/2" x [up to] 45" Album visually documents Western Maryland Railway's new terminus & general cargo dock facilities at Tidewater terminal, Port Covington, placed into service October 15, 1929. Covering 22 acres of land, and 38 acres of water approach, which were dredged to a depth of 35' below mean low water, the facility had 476,000 square feet of covered floor area, with a storage capacity of 65,000 tons of freight. The facility could handle 7 large ocean going ships at one time. Cargo handling was accomplished by cargo masts & traveling cranes at all waterfronts. The images detail the divers aspects & views of the port facilities & docks, including ships loading/unloading freight at the docks, different aspects of the 'up-to-date' buildings [e.g., ventilation & exhaust capability], freight moving mechanisms [e.g., spiral chutes & cranes], etc, etc. Western Maryland Railway, primarily a coal & freight hauling operation, can trace its roots to the mid-19th C, and eventually grew to became a major coal transporter in Maryland, West Virginia & Pennsylvania. In the early 1980s, it merged with the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. "The Hughes Company, the photographers for this collection, was a commercial photography studio in Baltimore, Maryland which made photographs for corporations, the government, and private individuals. The company was founded by James F. Hughes (d. ca. 1903), who ... owned the company until the time of his death, when company employee James W. Scott bought the business from Hughes' widow. The business eventually passed to Scott 's son, Gaither Scott. The Hughes Company existed until the late 1970s, when Gaither Scott retired." [MHS] An outstanding, possibly unique, album documenting local pre-depression Baltimore history, as well as the capital improvement efforts of one of Maryland's major transportation firms.

      [ Paris: Ad. Braun & Co., 1929. Untitled lithograph. Image size 12 x 9 1/2" (30.48 x 24.1cm), with full margins. Fine, in lightly smudged archival matting. One of an edition of 250 impressions printed on Montval, signed in the plate, and in pencil in the lower right margin. Lovet- Lorski (Lithuanian/American 1894-1973), was a major contributor to the American Art Deco style of the 1920's. Although best known as a sculptor, in 1929 Braun & Co. published two portfolios of his lithographs, of which this lithograph was a component. The image is of a male figure in foreground struggling with a horse against a mountainous landscape. In the background a nude female figure stretches her arms overhead as the sun rises (or sets) behind her, and the sea goes from placid to sweeping waves. Late in life, after arthritis hampered his ability to sculpt, Lovet-Lorski returned to drawing and print-making. His work is held in the collections of the Luxembourg Museum, Paris; Petit Palais, Paris; Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris; British Museum, London; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; San Diego Fine Arts Society; Los Angeles Museum of Art; Seattle Art Museum; San Francisco Museum of Fine Arts; Boston University; and Columbia University.
