        Störungen des Trieb- und Affektlebens (Die parapathischen Erkrankungen), 10 Bände.

      Berlin und Wien, Urban & Schwarzenberg / Leipzig, Wien, Bern, Verlag der psychotherapeutischen Praxis, 1922 - 1929. - Hauptwerk des österreichischen Arztes und Psychoanalytikers Wilhelm Stekel (1868 - 1940). Stekel war zunächst in seiner Wiener Praxis, die er 1894 eröffnete, als Allgemeinmediziner tätig, wandte sich aber unter dem Einfluß Freuds, den er um 1891 kennengelernt hatte, früh der Psychoanalyse zu. Dabei entwickelte er eine eigene Therapieform, die so genannte "Aktive Psychoanalyse", in der er die unbewußten inneren Konflikte seiner Patienten auf direktem Wege anzusprechen und offenzulegen versuchte. Nach dem "Anschluß" Österreichs 1938 floh Stekel über die Schweiz nach England und betrieb in London eine psychoanalytische Privatpraxis. Stekels in zehn Bänden erschienenes Hauptwerk, die "Störungen des Trieb- und Affektlebens", wurden ins Englische, teilweise auch ins Französische und Niederländische übersetzt und - in den USA - bis in die siebziger Jahre hinein immer wieder neu aufgelegt. Alle Bände mit zahlreichen anschaulich geschilderten Fallanalysen. Alle Bände - bis auf Bd. V - mit Sachregister und Autorenregister. Einige Bände im Abbildungen und Illustrationen. Bände im Einzelnen: Bd. I. Nervöse Angstzustände und ihre Behandlung. Vierte, vermehrte und verbesserte Auflage, 1923, 685 S. Bd. II. Onanie und Homosexualität. (Die homosexuelle Parapathie). Dritte, verbesserte und vermehrte Auflage, 1923, 600 S. Bd. III. Die Geschlechtskälte der Frau. (Eine Psychopathologie des weiblichen Liebeslebens). Dritte, verbesserte und vermehrte Auflage, 1927, 557 S. Bd. IV. Die Impotenz des Mannes. (Die psychischen Störungen der männlichen Sexualfunktion). Zweite, vermehrte und verbesserte Auflage, 1923, 572 S. Bd. V. Psychosexueller Infantilismus (Die seelischen Kinderkrankheiten der Erwachsenen). Mit 8 Textabbildungen, 1922, 616 S. Bd. VI. Impulshandlungen. (Wandertrieb, Dipsomanie, Kleptomanie, Pyromanie und verwandte Zustände). Mit 4 Textabbildungen, 1922, 520 S. Bd. VII. Der Fetischismus. Dargestellt für Ärzte und Kriminalogen.

        Ms. Brief mit eigenh. Unterschrift

      Konstantinopel, 31. X. 1929. - Gr.-4to. 1 ¼ p. An seinen Anwalt Gérard Rosenthal über die 1929 von Trotzki mitbegründete trotzkistische Zeitung „La Verité": „La Vérités'améliore visiblement. On voit que les articles pour la plupart sont écrits avec attention et soigneusement. Je vous ai déjà écrit quelques impressions dans ma lettre précédente. Pour préciser mes idées sur son contenu, je vous dirai quelques mots cette fois sur la bibliographie. Les articles d'A.A. sont très bons et très utiles, mais par le choix des livres et par la manière de les critiquer plus appropriés à une revue marxiste qu'à un hebdomadaire politique. On préférerait voir dans les colonnes bibliographiques de laVéritédes articles sur lesCahiers du bolchevisme, sur laRevue marxiste, sur l'Humanitémême, et sur d'autres journaux du parti; naturellement, aussi sur toutes les éditions du Komintern, du Profintern, de la C.G.T.U, etc.Je crois que par l'intermédiaire de la presse, [des éditions mêmes] et d'autres éditions du parti on pourrait mettre en lumière les traits essentiels de l'activité toute entière du parti. Les Cahiers pompeux du bolchevisme avec leur papier de luxe, leurs vignettes originales, etc., démontrent la richesse matérielle et la pauvreté idéologique d'une manière éclatante et même écoeurante. Je crois aussi que l'on devra donner deux ou trois articles sur l'Humanitéen les comparant avec les souscriptions précédentes par villes, régions, etc. C'est un travail minutieux, encombrant, mais il peut donner des résultats d'une importance tout à fait singulière sur les changements de l'influence du parti, sur la composition des sympathisants, etc. Sans des études pareilles (aussi par et sur les syndicats) notre critique restera abstraite et parfois même vide.Je parlais dans une de mes lettres à Naville de la nécessité de diviser sérieusement le travail entre laVéritéet laLutteen en formant un organisme unique. Le camarade Naville me répond que pour cela il faut une organisation unique, ce qui est entièrement juste. Malheureusement je ne vois pas par le journal lui-même ni par les lettres comment on s'y prend pour aboutir à cette organisation unique composée avant tout d'ouvriers actifs.Maintenant quelques mots au «maître». Je vous ai envoyé une lettre ennuyeuse sur mes relations avec Rieder. J'ai omis d'y mentionner que Paz lui a accordé le droit de traduction pour les pays européens, à l'exception de l'Allemagne et de l'Angleterre. Rieder retient, dans ce cas, 40% des sommes payées à l'auteur. C'est une piraterie. Il est juste vrai que les éditeurs français pratiquent cette piraterie normalement envers les jeunes écrivains en abusant de leurs besoins d'être introduits par les voies de la «franc-maçonnerie» internationale des éditeurs. Mais sans parler de ce que j'ai aucun besoin de la protection de Rieder devant ses semblables en Hollande et en Tchécoslovaquie, j'ai reçu un tas de propositions incomparablement plus favorables. J'ai transmis il y a quelques jours à Rieder une proposition analogue d'une société anglo-allemande, qui n'émet pas la prétention de retenir plus de 15% (au lieu des 40% de Rieder). Dans ce cas-ci je suis lié par le traité et Rieder a le droit formel de transporter ce paragraphe dans le nouveau traité. Mais vous pourrez tout de même essayer de faire une certaine pression sur cette matière problématique qui lui sert de conscience.Quant à mon livre sur l'Internationale j'apprends inopinément que toute l'affaire est entre les mains de Madeleine Paz. Je vous envoie ci-joint sa lettre et ma réponse pour vous mettre au courant. Je ne vous encombrerais pas de cette question qu'il ne s'agissait que d'une question personnelle. D'ailleurs je vous fais une proposition «commerciale»: les honoraires dus à un avocats dans un cas pareil, nous les déposerons à moitié dans la caisse de laVéritéet dans celle de laLutte." - Der türkische Staat unter Atatürk gewährte Trotzki 1929 politisches Asyl. Er verbrachte die Jahre zwischen 1929 und 1933 auf der Insel Büyükada in der [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Brook Kerith. A Syrian Story with twelve engravings by Stephen Gooden

      London: William Heinemann Ltd, 1929. With the full set of 12 signed proofs. Extremely rare.. First illustrated Edition. No.251 of 375 copies, signed by Moore and Gooden. 12 original copper engravings (nine full-page). Tall 8vo, original full vellum, gilt lettering on spine, unopend and untrimmed, in the original card slipcase. Few dark spots on the vellum and slipcase rather worn but otherwise a very good, crisp copy. Together with: A set of 12 proof copper engraved plates in a portfolio signed and dated 1927 and 1928 by Gooden on each plate. Large folio, in the original brown buckram portfolio lettered in gilt on the upper cover. All in fine condition. In 1913 the important Irish author George Moore (1852-1933) journeyed to Jerusalem to research background for his novel The Brook Kerith. This book is based on the supposition that a non-divine Christ did not die on the cross but was nursed back to health and eventually travelled to India to learn wisdom which obviously embroiled Moore in considerable controversy." Moore importance was huge. According to Richard Ellmann he heavily influenced Joyce and is often referred to as the first great modern Irish novelist. Obviously of the greatest rarity and in extremely good condition.

        Art and Manufacture

      London: Printed by the Fanfare Press for the New Handworkers' Gallery, 1929. One of only 60 copies signed by Gill. One of only 60 special copies, signed by Gill (this no.35). Two wood engravings, after designs by Eric Gill - the blocks were cut by John Beedham and touched up by Gill. Pp. 20, paginated to p.56 as this was the fourth title in the series of Handworkers' pamphlet (the first three were printed at the St. Dominic's Press). 8vo., original folded blue wrappers, printed paper label on upper cover. Extremely good, fresh copy. Here are Gill's thoughts, eloquently put, on what is Art and what it is for. "The artist is a man who makes things - that is his proper function". He states that "All men who make things are artists...all workmen were artist..this is not so today..The majority of men today do not make things. They only do things. They only do what they are told...They are mere puppets...." The two wood engravings are puppet images of people merely doing things...

        THE VICAR OF WAKEFIELD

      London, Bombay, Sydney: George G. Harrap & Company, 1929. First Trade Edition n. Hardcover. 257 x 197 mm (10 1/8 x 7 3/4"). 231, [1] pp. First Trade Edition. APPEALING PUBLISHER'S SPECIAL GRAY PERSIAN MOROCCO, UPPER COVER WITH MULTI-COLOR PICTORIAL MOROCCO INLAYS reproducing the illustration "An Epitaph for my Wife," flat spine with gilt titling, pictorial endpapers, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed. With 35 illustrations by Rackham comprised of 12 COLOR PLATES, an additional five full-page black and white line drawings, one title vignette in red, and 17 black and white drawings in the text. Front free endpaper with neatly inked contemporary gift inscription. Latimore and Haskell, p. 65; Riall, p. 170. Slight uniform sunning to the spine, boards with a hint of splaying, title with very faint mottled foxing, other trivial imperfections, but still a very pleasing copy, the binding unworn and lustrous, and the volume clean and fresh inside and out. This is one of the uncommon copies of the Rackham-illustrated "Vicar" in the publisher's special binding, which was issued simultaneously with the limited edition of 775 copies bound in vellum and the trade edition in cloth. The bindery is unknown, but it was likely Bayntun, which made inlaid pictorial bindings a specialty during the 1920s through mid-1930s. Written in 1761-62 but not published until four years later, "The Vicar of Wakefield" was said to have been rescued from some of Goldsmith's unpublished manuscripts by Dr. Johnson, who thus saved the penniless author from imprisonment by selling it to a publisher for £60. Considered to be the masterpiece of the middle-class domestic novel, the "Vicar" has never gone out of style because its whimsically delineated characters have a delightful simplicity that somehow insulates them against ultimate misfortune, and the innocent and virtuous are rewarded, as they should be, in the end. The total number of volumes of the present edition that featured our special pictorial binding is unknown, but it cannot be a great many.

        Autograph Letter Signed

      Petersfield, Hants, January 25, 1929. 2pp. on one sheet. 9 Whitehouse Terrace, Edinburgh stationary, but actually sent from Petersfield. A fascinating two-page letter to "Mr. Burdett," Osbert Burdett (1885-1936) English author, saying, "I telephoned to Fr. Gray [John Gray] you were pleased to have had "The Long Road" and he was both pleased and surprised- 'greatly interested.' All Blake readers should be beholden to you. I will re-read Yeats: some I saw in the Mercury, some in an American periodical. He was of course much attached to Mabel [Aubrey Beardsley's sister]. Thank you again, Yours Sincerely, Andre S. Raffalovich, Jan 25, 1929. In 1894, Raffalovich started to contribute on the subject of homosexuality (unisexualité, as he called it) to the Archives de l'Anthropologie Criminelle, a prestigious revue founded in Lyon by Alexandre Lacassagne, a pioneer criminologist and professor of forensic medicine. He soon became recognized as an expert in the field, engaging in correspondence with other researchers throughout Europe. In 1896, under the influence of John Gray, Raffalovich embraced Catholicism and joined the tertiary order of the Dominicans as Brother Sebastian. Raffalovich letters are extremely scarce, and this one packs a lot of familiar names in two pages.
