        Rot Gegen Rot

      Deutsche Verlags-Anstalt , Stuttgart, Germany, 1929. First Edition. Cloth. Very Good/No Dust Jacket. Signed by Author. 258pp; This is an extremely rare book with an incredible history. Based on my research, here is what I have learned: Josef Breitbach was born in Germany in 1903. From 1925 to 1928, he worked at a book dealer "Landauer" in Augsburg. While there, he developed relationships with the Communist Party. In 1928, he wrote and published this book, Rot Gegen Rot (Red Against Red), and was fired from his job in Germany because of the book. Josef wasn't popular with the German government either, and moved to France in 1929. While there, he published his next book in 1932, and the Germans banned his books in 1933. All in all, more than 4100 publications were banned by the Germans, but even on the short lists, Rot Gegen Rot is always one of the prominent books listed. Many of these books were collected and burned, but it is impossible to know how many actually survived. This particular copy must have been taken to France by Josef when he moved there. It was given as a gift to the wife of a prominent Jewish Rabbi (Adolf Phillipsborn) on April 15, 1936 in Paris, as noted in the inscription and by the Rabbi's bookplate. Josef Breitbach went on to fame as a writer in Europe until his death. The "Josef Breitbach Award" has been awarded annually since 1998 to the best German writer, and is considered the highest German literary prize. As for the book itself, it is in very good condition. It measures 7 1/2" x 5", and is covered in beige cloth with orange and black lettering. There is virtually no edgewear, but the corners are rounded. There is quite a bit of spotting on the cover and some minor soiling. The pages are slightly yellowed, but are tight and clean, and are in fine condition. The book is written entirely in German. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 pounds. Category: Sociology & Culture; Non-English Language::German; Signed by Author. Inventory No: 100641. .

        My Father

      New York: London: G.P. Putnam's Sons,, 1929. Octavo. Original blue full morocco, titles gilt to spine, facsimile signature gilt to front board, turn-ins elaborately gilt, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Tissue-guarded portrait frontispiece and 14 other plates, one of them a double-folding image of the Buick plant in 1911. Corners nicked, front inner hinge skilfully repaired, internally clean and fresh, a highly attractive copy in excellent condition. First and only edition, copy #1 (author's own) from a limited 50 signed and numbered copies printed on Perry rag laid paper, specially bound in blue full morocco. This copy was evidently retained by Durant until 1957, when she has gifted it away on the limitation page with the inscription, "To my dear Noela, with best love from Margery Durant, Greece, Oct 20th, 1957". This title is extremely uncommon, with just 9 copies on OCLC, with no copy in Library of Congress. These copies are listed with a larger limitation of 250 copies - hence this, the author's own copy from a smaller, more elite issue, must supercede even those. No trade edition was produced. The biography of the man who should perhaps be considered the father of the American automobile industry; he founded General Motors and Chevrolet; built and lost several fortunes; and was finally wiped out, as the "King of the Bulls," attempting to fight the Crash of 1929. His one time associate Frederick L. Smith considered that; "It would be a poorly posted analyst who failed to list W.C. Durant as the most picturesque, spectacular, and aggressive figure in the chronicles of American automobiledom. He certainly made some capital mistakes, a fact as to which we often violently disagreed, but the man who makes no mistakes rarely makes anything at all on a large scale" (Motoring Down a Quarter of a Century, p.38). The author, his daughter, Margery, is an interesting character in her own right, four times married, she eventually settled with Commander Fitzhugh Green, who had served on Donald B. MacMillan's Crocker Land Expedition. They were introduced to each other by Amelia Earhart and under her influence Margery became a long-distance aviatrix, making flights across Europe, Africa and the Middle East in an effort to popularize private air travel and serving on the Foreign Relations Committee of the National Aeronautical Association, the first woman to do so. One of the few sources for Durant's life, DAB remarking that "Biographical material on Durant is limited," John B. Rae, describing this as one of the "fullest accounts of Durant's early life" (The Fabulous Billy Durant in The Business History Review, vol. 32, No. 3, Autumn, 1958). The best copy of a great book.

Plates loose as issued, in publisher\'s green cloth and boards portfolio. Excellent copy with a few minor stains. One of the rarest of all modern books on scenography. This volume was done shortly after Appia\'s death. The beautiful plates provide the best record of Appia\'s work, since many were taken from Appia\'s drawings held in museums and private collections. His productions of Wagner\'s Walkyrie (1892), Tristan et Yseult (1896) and other Wagner operas are documented, as are his designs for the modern rhythmic dances of Jacques Dalcroze and Ibsen\'s Petit Eyolf, Orphee, King Lear, and Hamlet. Finally, there are a series of drawings from his Gluck Iphigenie operas.
