Einschlägige Vorlesungen, Vorträge, Erörterungen sollen die Teilnahme des Schauspielers an seinem Beruf erhöhen, alles wird gepflegt und gefördert werden, was für seine Kunst von Wichtigkeit und Bedeutung ist. Eine besonders ernste Aufgabe erblickt der Klub auch darin, sich [...] der Förderung ihrer gesellschaftlichen Stellung zu widmen" (Eigenwerbung des neugegründeten Bühnen-Klubs). - Gelocht, 2 Buchstaben beschädigt.

Erste Ausgabe einer seiner wichtigsten Veröffentlichungen im sehr seltenen Sonderdruck. Lukasiewicz, der mit seiner 1920 formalisierten dreiwertigen Logik den ersten mehrwertigen und damit nichtklassischen logischen Kalkül geschaffen hat, bezieht sich hier auf die gemeinsam mit Tarski im gleichen Jahr verfassten "Untersuchungen über den Aussagenkalkül", in der sie mehrwertige Systeme des Aussagenkalküls einführen, allerdings definiert als abstrakte mathematische Systeme. In vorliegender Arbeit versucht Lukasiewicz die dazu noch fehlende logische Interpretation zu geben und die Entstehung und Bedeutung derartiger Systeme vom philosophischen Standpunkt aus zu beleuchten. - Einband mit minimalem Lichtrand, sonst sauber und wohlerhalten. - DSB 8, 546

        Black Manhattan (Association Copy Inscribed to Julius Rosenwald)

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1930. Complete including all 14 photographic plates. Sound binding with intact hinges. Clean pages. Light wear to cover but sunned spine. Former owner&#39;s name inside front cover. Johnson&#39;s inscription on this important dedication copy reads, "For Julius Rosenwald with great admiration and deep regard. James Weldon Johnson / July 10, 1930." Rosenwald was a co-owner of Sears and Roebuck and one of the most generous philanthropists of his age. His Rosenwald Fund built 4,977 schools, 217 teachers&#39; homes, and 163 shop buildings for African-American children in 15 states from Maryland to Texas. Johnson, one of the most influential African-Americans in the first half of the twentieth century, was a famous author, songwriter (he and his brother wrote "Lift Ev&#39;ry Voice and Sing" as well as popular songs like "Under the Bamboo Tree"), educator, lawyer, diplomat, civil rights activist, and a longtime leader in the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). In 1929, Rosenwald began to shift his philanthropic focus from funding black education projects to funding creativity in the African-American community by providing a series of large fellowships to black writers, artists, intellectuals, and researchers. Johnson was the first recipient, and he used his grant to publish Black Manhattan, the most important cultural study of African Americans from their first arrival in America to their triumphant achievements in 1920s Harlem. Johnson also thanks the Rosenwald Fund in this book&#39;s preface. First Printing. Hard Cover. Good to Very Good/No Jacket. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

        Novye poety Frantsii v perevodakh Iv. Tkhorzhevskogo [Recent French poets in translation by Iv. Tkhorzhevskii]

      Paris: Knizhn. Delo "Rodnik" ("La Source"), 1930. Paris: Knizhn. Delo "Rodnik" ("La Source"), 1930. Large octavo (24 x 18.5 cm). Original blue decorative wrappers by Boris Grosser; 193, [2] pp. Signed and inscribed by the author to a fellow translator on the front flyleaf (Sablina). Wrappers lightly worn, edges rubbed; some fading and loss of spine strip at ends; internally very good. A monumental collection of French poetry in Russian translation, featuring the work of over seventy French poets of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, prepared and with a preface by Ivan I. Tkhorzhevskii, Russian emigre poet and translator. Among the many poets included are Verlaine, Rimbaud, Maeterlinck, Claudel, Gide, Proust, Apollinaire, Jean Cocteau, Paul Valery, and Valery Larbaud. Tkhorzhevsky&#39;s translations were far from universally appreciated. The poet Vladislav Khodasevich was reputed to have quipped about his translation of the Rubaiyat: "I had a terrible nightmare. I dreamed that I was a Person poet and that Tkhorzhevsky was translating me" (Karlinsky 315). And Vladimir Nabokov, in a letter to Gleb Struve, ridiculed Tchorzhevsky&#39;s translation of Rimbaud&#39;s "The Drunken Boat" for his unwarranted additions (such as a captain of the Russian intelligentsia). Wrappers designed by Boris N. Grosser (1889-1982), a French Jewish artist of Russian birth who illustrated numerous books published by Russian emigres with his distinctive woodcut designs. After studying with Bilibin, Grosser continued his training in Munich and Paris. After 1918, he lived in Odessa and in 1920 he emigrated, settling in Paris after 1921. He collaborated with numerous publishing houses in Paris, Berlin, and Holland, illustrating the works of Ivan Bunin, Vladimir Nabokov and many others. Grosser remains an understudied part of Russian book design and illustration abroad. One of 500 copies printed. Not in Savine; not at the Russian State or National Library.
