        Die Rotte (Roman; ein männlich rauhes Buch) 1. dt. Ausgabe

      Gießen, Kindt & Bucher, 1930. 206 S. übs. Hans Dietrich Disselhoff 8° Orig.pappband, Orig.Umschlag, gering staubig, leichte Gebr.spuren, Vorsatz Fingerfleck, sonst gutes Ex., ÄUßERST SELTEN Mariano Azuela (* 1. Januar 1873 in Lagos de Moreno, Jalisco; gest. 1. März 1952 in Mexiko-Stadt) war ein mexikanischer Arzt und Schriftsteller. Azuela studierte Medizin an der Universidad de Guadalajara; nach erfolgreichem Abschluss wurde er 1899 als Arzt zugelassen. Politisch interessiert nahm er an der Revolution teil und kämpfte unter Führung von Francisco Madero gegen Porfirio Díaz. Für einige Zeit leitete Azuela dabei auch die Verwaltung seiner Heimat Lagos de Moreno. Nach der Ermordung Maderos legte Azuela 1913 alle seine Ämter nieder und schloss sich Pancho Villa an. 1915 flüchtete er nach El Paso (Texas) und arbeitete dort u.a. als Journalist. Zwei Jahre später kehrte er mit seiner Familie in die Hauptstadt seines Landes zurück und arbeitete dort dann zeit seines Lebens als Arzt. Azuelas großes umfassendes Thema ist die mexikanische Revolution. Sein bei weitem berühmtester Roman \"Los de abajo\" (dt. Die Rotte) entstand 1915 als Fortsetzungsroman für das Feuilleton der in El Paso erscheinenden, spanischsprachigen Zeitung El Paso del Norte. Im Folgejahr wurde er auch in Buchform publiziert. Bereits kurz nach Erscheinen wurde er vielfach übersetzt und eine bemerkenswerte Verfilmung von Regisseur Chano Urueta war unter demselben Titel ab 1. Juni 1940 in den Kinos zu sehen. Bei Los de abajo verzichtet Azuela auf historische Genauigkeit. Vielmehr besticht sein Werk durch schnellen Szenenwechsel und lebendige Bilder, mit denen er ein beeindruckendes Bild der revoltierenden Horden zeichnet. Dieser Roman gilt bis heute als bedeutendster der weit über 200 Revolutionsromane. Versand D: 5,00 EUR

        Original Modular Sketch

      Berlin, 1930. Near Fine. Marcel Breuer. A nice-sized pencil-on-trace by Marcel Breuer, the great Hungarian-born Modernist architect and furniture designer (1902-1981) who was a student at the Bauhaus in Weimar and who, at an early age, was handpicked by Walter Gropius to head the Bauhaus' Carpentry Shop. His "modular" sketch measues 16 1/2" wide by 11 3/4" tall and features his Berlin studio stamp ("Marcel Breuer Architekt") at the lower right corner. The sketch has held up nicely. There are 2 even vertical folds and very light creasing and wear but the drawing remains strong, clean and vivid. Circa 1930-1933, when the Bauhaus had been relocated in Berlin.

Mit zeittypischen Äußerungen wie z.B.: \"Der Jude hat gar kein Interesse an der Lösung der deutschen Schicksalsfragen. Er kann das gar nicht haben. Denn er lebt ja davon, daß sie ungelöst sind. Macht aus dem deutschen Volk eine einige Gemeinschaft und gibt ihr die Freiheit vor der Welt, der Jude hätte keinen Platz mehr unter uns. Er hat also die besseren Trümpfe in der Hand, wenn ein Volk in innerer und äußerer Sklaverei lebt, als wenn es frei, tüchtig, selbstbewusst und geschlossen ist. Der Jude hat unsere Not verschuldet, und heute lebt er davon. Das ist der Grund, warum wir als Nationalisten und als Sozialisten Judengegner sind. Er hat unsere Rasse verdorben, unsere Moral angefault, unsere Sitte unterhöhlt und unsere Kraft gebrochen. Ihm verdanken wir es, dass wir heute die Parias der ganzen Welt sind. Solange wir Deutsche waren, war er aussätzig unter uns. Da wir unser Deutschtum vergaßen, triumphierte er über uns und unsere Zukunft. Der Jude ist der plastische Dämon des Verfalls. Wo er Unrat und Fäulnis wittert, da taucht er aus dem Verborgenen auf und beginnt seinen verbrecherisches Schächtwerk an den Völkern . . .\" - 2.

Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können."

        The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse -- ORIGINAL COVER ART

      - Original cover painting, circa 1930. Gouache on illustration board. The image is 13½ x 14¾' on illustration board 14½ x 20". An original painting for the cover of Blasco-Ibáñez's great novel (the title of which is here alarmingly misspelled!). The art does not appear to have been published, although the artist, Paul Quinn, did execute cover paintings and interior illustrations for a number of books. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is one of the great novels of World War I, centering on the French and German sons-in-law of an Argentinian land-owner who find themselves fighting on opposite sides of the conflict. The English translation was the top-selling book in the United States when it was published in 1919. Loss and stain to upper left margin: very good overall. [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Maltese Falcon

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1930. First edition. Very Good +. A Very Good + copy with a previous owner's name on the front end paper and minor soiling to the boards. Despite the defects a very presentable copy of Hammett's masterpiece. Hammett's classic hard-boiled detective tale, which would go on to influence countless others in the genre. The story features the first appearance of Sam Spade - a character Hammett referred to as a man with "no original" - and was initially serialized in the classic pulp magazine Black Mask before it was published in book form. Hammett was inspired by his own work as a detective, which is thought have contributed to Hammett's lauded realism. Famed mystery author, Raymond Chandler, said of the work: "If you can show me 20 books written approximately 20 years back that have as much guts and life now, I'll eat them between slices of Edmund Wilson's head." The Maltese Falcon also inspired numerous films, including the 1941 noir classic of the same name, (which Variety called "one of the best examples of actionful and suspenseful melodramatic story telling in cinematic form") written and directed by John Huston and starring Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor, and Sydney Greenstreet. The film would be nominated for three Academy Awards - including Best Picture - and was chosen for preservation by the Library of Congress' National Film Registry. The novel appears on Modern Library's list of the 100 best English Language Novels of the 20th century. Very Good +.

        The Director's Photograph Album for Ward Manor, the Old Folks Home and Youth Camp of New York City's Association for Improving the Condition of the Poor

      Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, 1930. Photograph Album. Very Good. Photography likely by Alfred Tennyson Beales. This large photograph album (13" x 15") contains 40 pages with over 80 photographs ranging in size from approximately 3" x 5" to 8" x 10". Almost all of the photographs have typed captions, many long and detailed. A large map and a two-page essay are mounted on three of the pages. Some of the pages have a little light edge-wear, but the photographs are in nice shape; several pages have vacant spaces where a few photographs have been removed. The album shows some wear and the joint of the front cover has been repaired with black cloth tape. The album cover has been stamped in gilt, "Ward Manor / On the Hudson / Ollie A. Randall." Ward Manor was the Old Folk's Home and Youth Camp for the New York City's Association for Improving the Condition of the Poor (AICP). In 1926, William Boyd, the owner of a baking company, purchased a large grey stone building and the surrounding land near Annandale-on-Hudson and donated it to the ACIP, which in turn used it create "a welcoming place for poor people to spend the last years of their lives." Eventually the ACIP bought surrounding properties and not only expanded the number of elderly rooms, but also created a summer vacation resort for semi-employed adults and a summer camp for impoverished children. Ollie A. Randall was the director of Ward Manor from 1926 until 1945, and this is her personal photograph album. Images include photos of the buildings, the grounds, the residents engaged in activities (gardening, hiking, knitting, rug making, etc.), common and personal rooms, resort activities (tennis, shuffleboard, horseshoe pitching, croquet), and camp scenes (campers, lodging, swiming, interacting with animals, ping-pong, arts and crafts, outdoor games, plays and performances, hayride, farming, a children's circus, etc. Ward Manor was transferred to Bard College in 1963 and today, the grey stone building serves as a domitory and student center. This is a unique photographic record of an important innovative and pioneering urban social program.
