        Urformen der Kunst. Photographische Pflanzenbilder von Professor Karl Blossfeldt. Herausgegeben mit einer Einleitung von Karl Nierendorf. 120 Bildtafeln.

      Berlin, Wasmuth 1929.. Berlin, Verlag Ernst Wasmuth A.G. (1929). Zweite Auflage 1929. XVII; 1 Blatt; 120 auf Stege montierte, einseitig bedruckte Kupfertiefdrucktafeln mit insgesamt 164 meist ganzseitigen Abbildungen. Original-Leinenband mit goldgeprägtem Rücken- und Vorderdeckeltitel, zusätzlich auf dem Vorderdeckel ornamentale Goldprägung. Fragment des Original-Schutzumschlages, der vordere illustrierte Teil, liegt lose bei. (32 x 25,2 cm) 4°.. - "... Wir Betrachtenden aber wandeln unter diesen Riesenpflanzen wie Liliputaner. ..." (Walter Benjamin) Die Ikone der Makro- bzw. Pflanzenphotographie der Neuen Sachlichkeit in der besten Ausgabe - Erste Auflage, zweiter (besserer) Druck. Parr/ Badger I, 96. Roth 48. The Open Book 66/ 67. Auer 133. "Den Einband zeichnete Lucian Zabel Berlin. Gesamte Druckherstellung 'Ganymed' Berlin." Die Rückenvergoldung ist unter Lichteinwirkung verblasst, das unter Kapital etwas verschlissen, die hintere Stehkante mit kleiner Druckstelle, die schweren Tafeln haben den Block etwas ausgehebelt, jedoch nur gelockert. Die Vorsätze papierbedingt Auf dem vorderen Innendeckel die Klebemarke eines Händlerkollegen aus den Haag ("M. Dijkhoffz Boek- en Kunsthandel Plaats 27 - 's-Gravenhage", auf dem vorderen fliegenden Vorsatz recto ein nahezu ausradierter, aber noch sichtbarer handschriftlicher, zeitgenössischer Besitzeintrag (" A. Zillesen Fieth[?] van F. 9.12.29". Die Tafel 4 ("Equisetum hiemale. Winter-Schachtelhalm Querschnitt eines Stengels in 30facher Vergrößerung.") diente auch als Vorlage für den Original-Schutzumschlag, dessen Fragment in Form des Vorderteiles hier mit leichten Mängeln beiliegt, eine Falzung in der Mitte, die Ränder verknickt und mit Einrissen, papier- und lichtbedingt etwas gebräunt. Die 2. Auflage enthält, unverändert zur formatmäßig kleineren Erstausgabe von 1928, ebenfalls 120 Fototafeln im Kupfertiefdruck besserer Qualität als der Erstausgabe. Die in der Summe größere Zahl der Abbildungen ergibt sich daraus, daß auf einigen Tafeln zwei, manchmal. sogar drei Abbildungen stehen. Abschließend sei noch Walter Benjamin's Rezension der Erstausgabe zu einem der auch heute noch einflußreichsten Photobücher weltweit zitiert: "Neues von Blumen ) Kritisieren ist eine gesellige Kunst. Auf das Urteil des Rezensenten pfeift ein gesunder Leser. Aber was er im Tiefsten goutiert, ist die schöne Unart, uneingeladen mitzuhalten, wenn der andere liest. Das Buch auf solche Weise aufzuschlagen, so daß es winkt wie ein gedeckter Tisch, an dem wir mit all unseren Einfällen, Fragen, Überzeugungen, Schrullen, Vorurteilen, Gedanken Platz nehmen, so daß die paar hundert Leser (sind es so viele ?) in dieser Gesellschaft verschwinden und gerade darum sich's wohl sein lassen - das ist Kritik. Zumindest die einzige, die dem Leser Appetit auf ein Buch macht. Sind wir für diesmal einig, so soll auf den einhundertzwanzig Tafeln dieses Buches für zahllose Betrachtungen und zahllose Betrachter gedeckt sein. Ja, so viel Freunde wünschen wir diesem reichen und nur mit Worten kargenden Werke. Man wird aber das Schweigen des Forschers ehren, der diese Bilder hier vorlegt. Vielleicht gehört sein Wissen zu jener Art, die den stumm macht, der es besitzt. Und hier ist wichtiger als das Wissen das Können. Wer diese Sammlung von Pflanzenphotos zustande brachte, kann mehr als Brot essen. Er hat in jener großen Überprüfung des Wahrnehmungsinventars, die unser Weltbild noch unabsehbar verändern wird, das Seine geleistet. Er hat bewiesen, wie recht der Pionier des neuen Lichtbilds, Moholy-Nagy hat, wenn er sagt: "Die Grenzen der Photographie sind nicht abzusehen. Hier ist alles noch so neu, daß selbst das Suchen schon zu schöpferischen Resultaten führt. Die Technik ist der selbstverständliche Wegbereiter dazu. Nicht der Schrift- sondern der Photographieunkundige wird der Analphabet der Zukunft sein." Ob wir das Wachsen einer Pflanze mit dem Zeitraffer beschleunigen oder ihre Gestalt in vierzigfacher Vergrößerung zeigen - in beiden Fällen zischt an Stellen des Daseins, von denen wir es am wenigsten dachten, ein Geysir neuer Bilderwelten auf. Diese Photographien erschließen im Pflanzendasein einen ganzen unver muteten Schatz von Analogien und Formen. Nur die Photographie vermag das. Denn es bedarf einer starken Vergrößerung, ehe diese Formen den Schleier, den unsere Trägheit über sie geworfen hat, von sich abtun. Was ist von einem Betrachter zu sagen, dem sie schon in der Verhüllung ihre Signale geben? Nichts kann die wahrhaft neue Sachlichkeit seines Vorgehens besser dartun, als der Vergleich mit jenem einstigen unsachlichen und doch so genialen Verfahren, kraft dessen der ebenso geschätzte wie unverstandene Grandville in seinen "Fleurs animees" den ganzen Kosmos aus dem Pflanzenreiche hervorgehen ließ. Er greift es vom entgegengesetzten Ende weiß Gott nicht zart - an. Er stempelt diesen reinen Naturkindern das Sträflingsbrandmal der Kreatur, das Menschengesicht, mitten in die Blüte hinein. Dieser große Vorläufer der Reklame beherrschte eines ihrer Grund prinzipien, den graphischen Sadismus, wie kaum ein anderer. Ist es nicht merkwürdig, hier nun ein anderes Prinzip der Reklame, die Vergrößerung ins Riesenhafte der Pflanzenwelt, sanft die Wunden heilen zu sehen, die die Karikatur ihr schlug? "Urformen der Kunst" - gewiß. Was kann das aber anderes heißen als Urformen der Natur ? Formen also, die niemals ein bloßes Vorbild der Kunst, sondern von Beginn an als Urformen in allem Geschaffenen am Werke waren. Im übrigen muß es dem nüchternsten Betrachter zu denken geben, wie hier die Vergrößerung des Großen - z. B. der Pflanze oder ihrer Knospe oder des Blattes - in so ganz andere Formenreiche hineinführt, wie die des Kleinen, etwa der Pflanzenzelle im Mikroskop. Und wenn wir uns sagen müssen, daß neue Maler wie Klee und mehr noch Kandinski seit langem damit beschäftigt sind, mit den Reichen uns anzufreunden, in die das Mikroskop uns barsch und gewaltsam entführen möchte, so begegnen in diesen vergrößerten Pflanzen eher vegetabilische "Stilformen". In dem Bischofstab, den ein Straußfarn darstellt, im Rittersporn und der Blüte des Steinbrech, die auch an Kathedralen als Fensterrose ihrem Namen Ehre macht, indem sie die Mauern durchstößt, spürt man ein gotisches parti-pris. Daneben freilich tauchen in Schachtelhalmen älteste Säulenformen, im zehnfach vergrößerten Kastanien- und Ahornsproß Totembäume auf, und der Sproß eines Eisenhufes entfaltet sich wie der Körper einer begnadeten Tänzerin. Aus jedem Kelche und jedem Blatte springen uns innere Bildnotwendigkeiten entgegen, die in allen Phasen und Stadien des Gezeugten als Metamorphosen das letzte Wort behalten. Das rührt an eine der tiefsten, unergründlichsten Formen des Schöpferischen, an die Variante, die immer vor andern die Form des Genius, der schöpferischen Kollektiva und der Natur war. Sie ist der fruchtbare, der dialektische Gegensatz zur Erfindung: das Natura non facit saltus der Alten. Das weibliche und vegetabilische Lebensprinzip selber möchte man mit einer kühnen Vermutung sie nennen dürfen. Die Variante ist das Nachgeben und das Beipflichten, das Schmiegsame und das, was kein Ende findet, das Schlaue und das Allgegenwärtige. Wir Betrachtenden aber wandeln unter diesen Riesenpflanzen wie Liliputaner. Brüderlichen Riesengeistern, sonnenhaften Augen, wie Goethe und Herder sie hatten, ist es noch vorbehalten, alle Süße aus diesen Kelchen zu saugen. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ ) Karl Bloßfeldt, Urformen der Kunst.

Gesammelte Schriften III. (1912 - 1940) S. 151 ff Interessant ist es zu wissen, daß nahezu zeitgleich Ernst Fuhrmann Photobücher mit vermeintlich ähnlichen Abbildungen im Auriga-, bzw. Folkwang-Verlag veröffentlichte, jedoch mit völlig gegensätzlicher Intention, an denen u.a. Alfred Renger-Patzsch als Photograph mitwirkte. Blossfeldt richtete seinen Fokus, wie sein Titel es auch ausdrückte, auf die Kunst, das Dekorative, Fuhrmann hingegen auf "Die Pflanze als Lebewesen", was eben auch Benjamin sofort erkannt hatte. * Zahlung mit VISA/ MASTERCARD möglich.

        Film: Gegner von Heute - Freunde von Morgen [Enemy of Film Today - Friend of Film Tomorrow] (First Edition)

      Berlin: Verlag Hermann Reckendorf G.M.B.H., 1929. First Edition. First Edition. Small quarto. A companion volume to Werner Graff's "Es Kommt der Neue Fotograf," an early and highly influential study of experimental film published to coincide with the 1929 Film und Foto exhibition in Stuttgart. Illustrated with numerous photographs, film stills, and film strips, with photographic reproductions by many of the important avant-garde `artists of the era, including Man Ray, Duchamp, Leger, and Richter himself. A fascinating book from several perspectives. Not only one of the first books to attempt to characterize early avant-garde filmmaking, but a lushly produced volume, with hundreds of stills from various early experimental films, speaking not only to concept but also to technique and method. The stills selected by Richter include not only strips and stills of the films discussed, but also rare images of candid on-set images of the filmmakers at work. Fine in an Near Fine, exceptionally sharp example of the scarce dust jacket, with only a bit of horizontal creasing on the jacket spine panel to note.

        Original Sketch Signed with initials, folio, Aug. 1929

      - Barbier has sketched a multicolored fantasy seascape with a soft toned mermaid at the center. Drawn on folio sheet with some show through of handwriting (in an unknown hand) on verso. The handwriting shows as soft arcs and fits in with the image. Signed in the middle of the drawing in small letters with date, "GB Aug. 1929." Matted in gray and framed in silver toned wood. Barbier is best known for his theater designs, ballet costumes, and particularly for his high fashion illustrations. He led a group of illustrators from the Beaux Arts School known for their flamboyance as much as their art. Barbier also created jewelry, glass and wallpaper design and worked with Erté to design sets and costumes for the Follies Bergére. He died at the height of his career. In 1929, Barbier was the costume designer for musical "The Street Singer." [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Good-Bye To All That: an autobiography

      Cape, 1929. 1st edition. Hardcover. True first printing with the original Siegfried Sassoon poem, or verse letter, in full on pp 341-3, and the piece on page 290 which alludes to Sassoon's mother's attempts to communicate with the spirit of her dead son, Siegfried's younger brother Hamo. Outraged that he had not given permission for their inclusion, Sassoon insisted that these passages were immediately removed, and therefore asterisks appear in subsequent copies, and very few copies exist of this original issue. Graves and Sassoon were never friends again. The original salmon cloth boards are in fine condition, a minor bump at the heel of the spine, else entirely unmarked. The pages and endpapers are completely free of foxing. The original dustwrapper is not price-clipped, is in very good condition, with minor professional repairs at front fold and head of spine. In sum, an excellent example of Graves's classic memoir of the First World War. Included is a 1929 typed letter from noted New York bookdealer, James F. Drake, to a customer in which he says, 'I am sorry I cannot supply a copy of Good-bye to All That, first issue. As you probably know, the book was suppressed on account of the war poem by Sassoon, etc, and very, very few copies got into circulation. Unfortunately, I did not get any'. Also included are black-and-white photographic reproductions of (a) the first page, overlaid on the final page, of Sassoon's suppressed poem, in Graves's hand, which he says at the top is a copy 'in case I lost the original', dated 24.7.18, and (b) two pages, plus the title page, showing the annotations made by Edmund Blunden, with Sassoon's help, to a copy of Graves's book, pursuant to their irritation with their perceived inaccuracies and omissions in Graves's wartime account (they intended to send their annotated copy to the British Museum - but never actually did so). These reproductions come from Lew David Feldman's record of the sale of Sassoon items in 1975. In the printed edition of Good-Bye To All That, Graves omitted nine lines, including the final six, of Sassoon's poem.

        A Farewell To Arms

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons 1929 - First edition, first printing. Publisher's black cloth, gilt labels with black lettering to the front board and spine. About near fine, with some light rubbing to the extremities, bright spine with a slight lean, light rubbing to the board and the front title label, erased ownership inscription to the front pastedown, part of a bookseller's plate to the front free endpaper, otherwise bright and clean interior. Overall, a sturdy and attractive copy. 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."

Autograph directive for engraver to lower right corner of first page: "en bas: Avec l'autorisation des Editions Max Eschig, 48 rue de Rome, Paris."

Annotation, "Revue musicale" in pencil to left of title in an unknown hand. Three horizontal creases; small ink stain to left margin and small rust mark to upper edge of first page; stain to final blank page. . Engraver's copy for the separate edition of these two mazurkas published as a supplement to Revue musicale 10, issue 4-5 (1929), in which R. Petit published his article "Alexandre Tansman" (op. cit., pp. 46–54). The entire "Recueil de Mazurkas (1918-1928)," later counted as "1er recueil" (three more followed), was published by Max Eschig, Paris, in 1929. The present mazurka no. 1 is counted "no. 6" in the entire collection; the present no. 2 (Oberek) is counted "no. 1." "Alexandre Tansman was a French composer and pianist of Polish birth... Disappointed with his reception in Poland, he moved to Paris, giving a début recital in February 1920. Soon after his arrival, he became friendly with Stravinsky and Ravel, both of whom encouraged and advised him... Acquainted with many leading musical figures in Paris during these years, Tansman was part of the circle of foreign musicians, known as the Ecole de Paris, that included Martin , Alexander Tcherepnin, Conrad Beck and Marcel Mihalovici. While his music retained many distinctively Polish features, such as Mazurka rhythms and Polish folk melodies, and while he wrote collections of Polonaises, Nocturnes, Impromptus, Waltzes and other Chopinesque miniatures, neo-classical traits appear in works [from about 1925]... Although he never completely abandoned a diatonic framework, critics of the 1920s and 30s described his harmony at times as Scriabinesque and atonal... Tansman was quick to achieve international success... He settled in Los Angeles in 1941 where he became acquainted with Schoenberg, renewed friendships with other European émigrés, including Milhaud and Stravinsky, and composed a number of film scores. He returned to Paris in 1946." Caroline Rae in Grove M.O.
