        The Pilgrim on the Earth

      Blackamore Press, London, 1929. Blackamore Press, London, 1929 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Vellum spine with gilt titles and blue cloth covered boards. This is a Limited First Edition as detailed on the page after the half title page, see photograph above, please note this book has not been officiallynumbered. Contains 12 wood engravings in colour including the frontispiece. The is the number 178 written in thick, black pen on the first end papers and again on the top and bottom page edges. Julian Hartridge Green, or Julien Green (19001998), was a French born American author of several novels including Lviathan and Each in His Own Darkness. He wrote primarily in French, but was not a French citizen. Born into a Protestant family, he converted to Catholicism in 1916. The next year, at the age of 16, he volunteered his services as an ambulanceman in the American Field Service. When his age was discovered his enlistment was annulled. He immediately signed up with an ambulance unit of the American Red Cross, and when that six-month term of service ended in 1918, he enlisted in the French Army, in which he served as a second lieutenant of artillery until 1919. He was educated at the University of Virginia in the United States from 1919-22. His career as one of the major figures of French litterature in the 20th century started soon after his return from the United States. In July of 1940, after France's defeat, he went back to America. In 1942, he was mobilized and sent to New York to work at the United States Office of War Information. From there, for almost a year, five times a week, he would address France as part of the radio broadcasts of Voice of America, working inter alia with Andr Breton and Yul Brynner. Green went back to France right after the end of World War II. A devout Catholic, most of his books focused on the ideas of faith and religion as well as hypocrisy. He inherited a sense patriotism from his mother, who came from a distinguished southern family. They moved to France for his fathers job. In France, both during his life and today, Julien Green's fame rests principally not on his novels, but on his journals, published in ten volumes, and spanning the years 1926-1976. These avidly-read and well-known volumes provide a chronicle of his literary and religious life, and a unique window on the artistic and literary scene in Paris over a span of half a century. Green's style, austere and employing to great effect the pass simple, a literary tense nearly abandoned by many of his French contemporaries, found favor with the Acadmie Franaise, a fact mentioned in his election to that august body. Green resigned from the Acadmie shortly before his death, citing his American heritage and loyalties. . He died on August 13, 1998 in Paris and was buried in the parish church of Klagenfurt, Austria. Apparently, Green was greatly moved by a statue of the Virgin Mary during a visit there in 1990. Subsequently, he expressed a desire to be buried in one of the church's chapels. Julien Green is the adoptive father of the gay fiction writer, ric Jourdan. Green was the first non-French national ever to be elected to the Acadmie franaise. Fittingly, he succeded Franois Mauriac, taking chair number 22 on the 3rd of June, 1971. It was commonly believed he had dual citizenship but in fact, although born in Paris and writing almost exclusively in the French language, he had never become a French citizen. President Georges Pompidou offered him French citizenship in 1972 following Green's election to the Acadmie, but - faithful to the partiotic, sudiste spirit his mother inspired in him - Green refused it. Condition: the binding is tight and from and both covers are firmly attached. There is some minor wear to the extremities. Internally the book is clean and bright. This is the number 178 written in thick, black pen on the first end papers and again on the top andbottom page edges. 178 is written in purple ink on the top of the title page. The pages are roughly cut as called for..

        Filmgegner von heute - Filmfreunde von Morgen.

      Hermann Reckendorf, Berlin. 1929.. 125 S., 1 Bl. Mit zahlr. Abb. 4°, Orig.-Leinenbd mit illustr. -Schutzumschlag.. Erste Ausgabe. - Mit dem Schutzumschlag sehr selten. - Das Buch erschien anlässlich der bahnbrechenden Werkbundausstellung 'Film und Foto', kurz FiFo, zusammen mit Werner Gräffs 'Es kommt der neue Fotograf' sowie dem von Franz Roh und Jan Tschichold herausgegebenen Band 'Foto-Auge'. Gräff und Richter ließen ihre Bände beide bei Hermann Reckendorfer verlegen, der u.a. auch 'Die Form' publizierte. Ähnlich wie Gräff war Richter mit dem Problem der Bildbeschaffung konfrontiert, so dass er auf seine eignen filmischen Arbeiten zurückgreifen musste. Um den Film in seiner Dynamik mit Abbildungen dokumentieren zu können, entschied sich Richter dazu, neben die Einzelbilder vor allem Filmstreifen zu gesellen; eine Methode, die seinerzeit jedoch von anderen Autoren nicht aufgegriffen werden sollte. Im Zentrum der Auseinandersetzung Richters stand der Film als eigenständige Kunstform, die sich gegenüber dem bloßen Unterhaltungsfilm zu behaupten hatte. Denn spätestens mit der Einführung des Tonfilms im Erscheinungsjahr wurde der Film zum Massenmedium. (Vgl. Roland Jaeger, Bleibende Dokumente des Neuen Sehens, Der Verlag Hermann Reckendorf, Berlin, in: Autopsie, Deutschsprachige Fotobücher 1918 bis 1945, Bd. I, Hrsg.: Manfred Heiting u. Roland Jaeger, Göttingen 2012, S. 257-259.) Manche Einzelbeobachtungen, die Richter in Bezug auf den zeitgenössischen Film machte, antizipierten bereits in Teilaspekten die Auffassung einer Kulturindustrie, wie sie später von Adorno und Horkheimer in der 'Dialektik der Aufklärung' geprägt werden sollte. So schrieb Richter zum Bereich der Filmthemen: 'Wir wissen sehr gut, daß Reichtum, Schönheit und Macht gerade von denen am meisten geliebt werden, die sie nicht besitzen und daß sie ihre Sehnsucht danach ins Kino treibt. Aber wir wissen auch, daß sie, nachdem sie sich dort berauscht haben, nur noch elender werden [...] Sie werden erst recht unfähig, eine menschliche Lösung für ihr Dasein zu finden. Hier ist das Kino der schlimmste Feind der Schwachen, Entmutigten und Unerfahrenen'. (53) Doch sah er, etwas optimistischer als später die Theoretiker der Frankfurter Schule, die Möglichkeit der positiven Veränderung, in dem er folgerte: 'Die Aufgaben einer neuen Generation von Filmautoren werden darin bestehen, den Film zur geistigen Befreiung des Menschen und zum Aufbau einer vernünftigen Welt zu verwenden.' (53) In seinem Vorwort machte Richter deutlich, welche Intention diese Publikation haben sollte: 'Sie sind Filmgegner? So wie der Film heute ist, kann er gar nicht genug Gegner haben. Der Filmgegner von heute hat eine Kulturmission zu erfüllen: Den schlechten Film zu bekämpfen, zu protestieren, den Protest zu organisieren. Je mehr Filmgegner, um so größer die Möglichkeit für bessere Filme.'

The museum was originally based mainly on Andersson's groundbreaking discoveries in China, during the 1920s, of a hitherto unknown East Asian prehistory. The museum today has wide-ranging collections and exhibits of Asian archeology, classical arts, and culture, and a large Asia research library open to the public. The last time the museum published a comprehensive catalog was 1963 (Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities: Album).

        Letters of Tribute to William Gillette On The Occasion of His Farewell to the Stage In His Famous Creation ?Sherlock Holmes?

      An exceptionally large poster; 64 x 44?; backed with slightly larger linen for preservation, enabling it to be unrolled without damage. Numerous creases from folds; some small chips, tears and minor discolorations; printed in two colors. At the start of his ?Farewell Tour,? in New York?s New Amsterdam Theater, November 25, 1929, the author-playwright was presented with a book of congratulatory letters from many prominent contemporaries. This poster reproduces those in facsimile, surrounding Steele?s iconic image of Gillette as Holmes, depicted in dressing gown and with a pipe in his mouth. Accompanied by Letters of Salutation and Felicitation Received by William Gillette On The Occasion of His Farewell to the Stage in ?Sherlock Holmes,? setting in type 62 of these letters, including testimonials by Doyle, Coolidge, Belasco, Frohman, C.D. Gibson, Otis Skinner, et al.; in original printed wrappers, with Holmes in profile on the front wrapper; very good. Gillette continued touring as Holmes until 1932. Retirement was an unwelcome alternative for Gillette, who continued to appear on stage until shortly before his death in 1937.
