        S/W Porträtphotographie. [ca. 23 x 16,5 cm].

      Wien, Fayer, o. J. [um 1930?].. . Mit Prägestempel und eighd. Signatur des Fotografen. - Abzug auf Karton montiert, darunter Namensschildchen, Karton m. Gbrsp. sowie Resten von drei Klebefilmstreifen. - Berg, (1883 - 1956), versuchte sich bereits mit 15 Jahren als Komiker am Stadttheater in Leitmeritz; Engagements in Teplitz, Mährisch-Ostrau und Aussig folgten. Erste größere Erfolge hatte er gemeinsam mit Heinrich Eisenbach als Mitglied des Budapester Orpheum in Wien, dem er 17 Jahre lang angehörte. In der Folge trat er in diversen Kabaretts und Lokalen auf, wie dem Theater der Komiker im St. Annahof (Wien), an dessen Führung er sich eine Zeit lang beteiligte, und dem Ronacher. Am 2. Juli 1907 heiratete er die aus Vevey stammende Artistin Susanne Emilie Flückiger. Er spielte auch in einigen österreichischen Filmproduktionen mit, unter anderem in Charly, der Wunderaffe (1915, Regie: Joe May) und der Verfilmung des Hugo Bettauer-Romans Die Stadt ohne Juden. Berg flüchtete 1938 in die USA, wo er vom Verkauf von Papierwaren notdürftig lebte. Hin und wieder hatte er die Möglichkeit, Vorstellungen zu geben, wie im New Yorker Exilkabarett "Kabarett der Komiker". Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Wien 1949 war er unter anderem im Simpl engagiert und gab einige Gastspiele in Amsterdam und Zürich. Nachdem er keine weiteren Engagements hatte, zog er nochmals in die USA. Von 1954 bis zu seinem Tod lebte er wieder in Wien. Seine Grabstelle befindet sich auf dem Wiener Zentralfriedhof im neuen israelitischen Teil, Tor IV. Er wurde im Grab seiner 1918 verstorbenen Mutter beigesetzt. (Zitat)

        Vile Bodies

      London: Chapman & Hall, 1930. London: Chapman & Hall, 1930. First Edition. A fine copy in a very good dust jacket with some small chips, not affecting illustration or lettering and with very minor internal archival mends. An observant bibliographically inclined collector of our acquaintance, in comparing this example with another at hand, discovered subtle differences in the titles listed on the back panel. Both jackets were priced at the first edition?s issued price of 7/6 (in pre-paperback days, English publishers generally reduced prices quickly to 3/6), but one ends with Jeffery?s Second Choice, while this example lists Jeffery?s Miss Vell Intervenes and follows with Winder?s Sin-Offering. His research indicates that this would have logically followed the former. It can then be presumed that this is at least a second state of the dust jacket.

Both Vedy and Ratcliffe were phycisists at the time, presumably collaborating on wireless (Ratcliffe had just published "The Physical Principles of Wireless"). Ratcliffe was a Cambridge lecturer in 1930 and went on to be a leading light in the development of radar in the second world war. Vedy was the author of "Demonstration of The Behaviour of Bodies with non-conducting surfaces in electrostatic fields." published in The Proceedings of The Physical Society in 1926. A lovely copy of one of the most influential physics texts of the 1930's with a fascinating provenance.

        Die Weltmeisterschaftsbälle - Alle original Fußbälle von 1930 bis 2010 - Kunstedition mit Buch.

      . Nie zuvor wurden die originalen Weltmeisterschaftsbälle komplett fotografiert, nie zuvor mit fotoästhetischer Perfektion und Liebe porträtiert. Die Künstler und Autoren haben dazu fast ein dutzend Länder bereist, über drei Jahre hinweg recherchiert, ein Jahr geplant, entworfen und produziert und dieses wunderbare, limitierte Werk herausgebracht. Die Kunst-Edition besteht aus 7 hochwertigen Pigmentabzügen der Weltmeisterschaftsbälle von 1930, 1954, 1966, 1974, 1986, 1998 und 2006 im Format 33 cm mal 33 cm, auf Hahnemühle Fine Art Papier 285 gr, in Museumsqualität angefertigt. Das heißt, sie sind besonders lange haltbar und die Oberfläche edel. Die Pigmentabzüge sind alle vom Fotografen Jens Heilmann handsigniert. Das Buch wurde auf einem besonders veredelten Naturpapier im hochwertigen Offsetdruck gedruckt, dann mit großem Aufwand zu einer sogenannten Schweizer Broschur verarbeitet (fadengenäht und verleimt, mit offenem Rücken), weil sich diese Form des Buches leicht blättern lässt. Die Naht darf gern an Ballnähte erinnern. Der Buchdeckel nimmt das Material der Schachtel noch einmal auf. Die Fotografie der Bälle ist aufwändig, wirkt aber schlicht und unspektakulär. Die individuelle Geschichte der Bälle, ihr oftmaliger Wechsel von einem Besitzer zum anderen, ihre technischen Besonderheiten wurden mit größtmöglicher Detailtreue recherchiert und aufgeschrieben. Materialwahl und Verarbeitung, Form, Grafik. Texte und Fotografie sollten eine Einheit bilden und zur Ausstrahlung der Bälle passen. Diese haben mit der Zeit eine schöne und schlichte Patina erhalten. Ähnlich verhält es sich mit diesem Buch. Der Einband ist empfindlich und es wird ein vorsichtiger Umgang empfohlen, insbesondere, wenn das Buch weiterverschenkt werden soll. Zu diesem Zweck sind Baumwollhandschuhe beigelegt. Die Bücher haben einen Umfang von 60 Seiten und 33x33 cm und sind handnummeriert. Die Schachtel ist eine hochwertige Buchbindearbeit aus Karton und Holz. Das Obermaterial ist gesiebdruckt und erinnert an die Oberfläche eines Balles. Glatt und trotzdem griffig, edel, kühl, schön in der Hand zu halten. DEUTSCHE AUSGABE. Zustand: A.

These volumes contain the following works by Moliere: La Jalousie du barbouill - Le Mdecin volant - L'Etourdi - Le Dpit amoureux - Les Prcieuses ridicules - Saganarelle - Don Garcie de Navarre - L'Ecole des maris - Les Fcheux - L'Ecole des femmes - L'Impromptu de Versaille - Le Mariage forc - Les Plaisirs de l'le enchante - Tartuffe - Don Juan - L'Amour mdecin - Le Misanthrope - Le Mdeci malgr lui - Amphytrion - George Dandin - L'Avare - Monsieur de Pourceaugnac - Le Bourgeois gentilhomme - Les Fourberies de Scapin - La Comtesse d'Escarbagnas - Les Femmes savantes - Le Malade imaginaire. Jean-Baptiste Poquelin, known by his stage name Molire; was a French playwright and actor who is considered to be one of the greatest masters of comedy in Western literature. Among Molire's best-known works are Le Misanthrope (The Misanthrope), L'cole des Femmes (The School for Wives), Tartuffe ou L'Imposteur (Tartuffe or the Imposter), L'Avare (The Miser), Le Malade Imaginaire (The Imaginary Invalid), and Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme (The Bourgeois Gentleman). Born into a prosperous family and having studied at the Collge de Clermont (now Lyce Louis-le-Grand), Molire was well suited to begin a life in the theatre. Thirteen years as an itinerant actor helped him polish his comic abilities while he began writing, combining Commedia dell'arte elements with the more refined French comedy. Through the patronage of a few aristocrats, including Philippe I, Duke of Orlans the brother of Louis XIV Molire procured a command performance before the King at the Louvre. Performing a classic play by Pierre Corneille and a farce of his own, Le Docteur Amoureux (The Doctor in Love), Molire was granted the use of salle du Petit-Bourbon near the Louvre, a spacious room appointed for theatrical performances. Later, Molire was granted the use of the Palais-Royal. In both locations he found success among the Parisians with plays such as Les Prcieuses ridicules (The Affected Ladies), L'cole des Maris (The School for Husbands) and L'cole des Femmes (The School for Wives). This royal favor brought a royal pension to his troupe and the title Troupe du Roi (The King's Troupe). Molire continued as the official author of court entertainments. Though he received the adulation of the court and Parisians, Molire's satires attracted criticisms from moralists and the Roman Catholic Church. Tartuffe ou L'Imposteur (Tartuffe or the Hypocrite) and its attack on religious hypocrisy roundly received condemnations from the Church, while Don Juan was banned from performance. Molire's hard work in so many theatrical capacities began to take its toll on his health and, by 1667, he was forced to take a break from the stage. In 1673, during a production of his final play, Le Malade Imaginaire (The Imaginary Invalid), Molire, who suffered from pulmonary tuberculosis, was seized by a coughing fit and a haemorrhage while playing the hypochondriac Argan. He finished the performance but collapsed again and died a few hours later. Condition: In quarter calf leather bindings with marbled paper covered boards and gilt lettering to the spines. Externally, generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. Corners are slightly bumped. Some volumes are in a partial acetate covering. Top edges of the leaves are gilt. Internally, generally firmly bound. Pages are foxed throughout, particularly to the first and last few pages. Overall: VERY GOOD..
