        Illustrierte Flora von Mittel-Europa. Mit besonderer Berücksichtigung von Oesterreich, Deutschland und der Schweiz. Zum Gebrauche in den Schulen und zum Selbstunterricht. 5 Bände in 13 Teilen (vollständig).

      A. Pichler‘s Witwe & Sohn, Wien, o. J. (1908-1931). - Gr.-Oktav. Goldgeprägtes Halbleder mit marmorierten Bezügen. Ca. 7800 S., mit 280 überwiegend farbigen Tafeln und tausenden s/w-Abbildungen im Text. Vollständig. Die Rücken durch Lichteinfall teils etwas aufgehellt, geringfügig berieben, stellenweise mit Anstreichungen des Vorbesitzers (kaum störend). Schönes Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe. Nissen, BBI 840 (gibt fälschlich 285 Tafeln an). – Ursprünglich auf nur drei Bände angelegt geriet das Werk ob des immer wieder verschobenen Abschlußes bald zum Sorgenkind des Verlages und lag letzten Endes erst nach 24 Jahren vollständig vor. Im Laufe der Zeit avancierte es zu einem immer wieder neu aufgelegten und bis in die Gegenwart aktualisierten Klassiker der Botanik. – „Ab 1905 erstellte Hegi mit seinem Werk Alpenflora die erste umfassende Darstellung der Pflanzenwelt der Alpen. Auf Wunsch seines Verlegers machte er sich anschliessend an die Aufgabe, ein ähnliches Werk auch für die gesamte deutsche Flora zusammenzustellen. Zwischen 1908 und 1931 hat er dieses Jahrhundertwerk unter dem Titel ‚Illustrierte Flora von Mittel-Europa‘ herausgegeben. (.) Davon hat Hegi etwa zwei Drittel selbst bearbeitet, der Rest stammt von Koautoren." (wikipedia, dt.). – Die Illustrationen stammen überwiegend von Gustav Dunzinger und dem Kunstmaler R. E. Pfenninger. 20000 g

        Autograph Letter Signed, in German, on magnificent hotel multicolored stationery, 4 full 4to pages, Partenkirchen, Thursday, September 3, 1931

      - This is an extremely long gossipy letter to his wife Edith,[Hahn]. "I do want to write you a real letter?And today I got the one you sent?I thank you for all of them. But I never got the card you sent to the Karwendel hut, nor the card Baeyer sent here; he had not put his return address on it, so the stupid hotel desk clerk probably threw it out instead of keeping it until Professor Hahn would arrive. Here, too?Two days ago I drove to Lake Eib with Baeyer? Baeyer, Bodenstein and I spent the evening in one of the local pubs. Today, Baeyer and I took the funicular up to the 'Wank,' another 3,000 ft higher. Baeyer was able to walk those 3,000 ft back down, which he paid for with a lot of sweat. But during the day, he only drinks seltzer, lemonade, and coffee. And only in the evening it's beer, but then several glasses. But it's easier here than in Berlin and it does as little harm as in Munich?Of course it all costs more than in the Pinzgau, where everything is more primitive and where there are fewer opportunities to spend money. Now a little more regarding your letters. The pneumothorax may not be all that bad. Our acquaintance, Dr. Riehl (used to be in the laboratory, now is with Auer) has one done almost every month; meanwhile, he's been back with Bauer and hopes to be fully recovered soon. - I am happy that Hartmut is biking and swimming again and hope the limping will improve as well?Well, I won't say anything about the Punch and Judy show and will wait to be surprised?How is Lise [Meitner]? I wrote her a while back to think about coming here for a few days, but two days ago I wrote her that it wouldn't be worth it now for such a short time. I may well make a detour from Frankfurt if she is somewhere in Germany before her physics conference. It wouldn't hurt if we were able to talk about the program of the Bunsengesellschaft before it takes place. She must be quite exhausted coming straight from the lab. Why don't you call and invite her?." Signed, "Your Otto". With holograph envelope. Lise Meitner worked together with Hahn for 30 years, each of them leading a section in Berlin's Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Chemistry. Hahn and Meitner collaborated closely, studying radioactivity, with her knowledge of physics and his knowledge of chemistry. In 1918, they discovered the element protactinium. This is a highly attractive letter, both lengthy, gossipy and with great association. Hahn refers to colleagues, Otto von Baeyer and Max Bodenstein. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

      1931. Hi, This lot is a 1931 Original Hardback Wisden in very good Condition, This Wisden is a very nice book, especially for the year as the 1931 is a very large book, the hinges tend to give way but this is not the case in this book. The gilt to the front is very bright, the boards are very clean with only the odd small mark to the front and rear. The spine cloth has some wear to the base,not sure how to explain it but looks rubbed, not off putting though. The hinges are both excellent and springy and the inside of the book is very presentable without restoration. The page block at the top of the book is dark and the board corners are inturned slightly. Excellent photoplate. A Very Good 1931.

        Histoire de Babar (le petit elephant)

      Paris: Editions du Jardin des Modes, 1931. Hardcover. Very Good.

Housed in the publisher's matching numbered slipcase (cracked and a little soiled and darkened). "The style of work for a series of poems published by Harrap and Sons in the early thirties returned unashamedly to the early style. These books were The Night Before Christmas (1931), The King Of The Golden River (1932), Goblin Market (1933) and The Pied Piper of Hamelin (1934). (Gettings, p. 161). "For the next three years Rackham and Harrap had a successful arrangement whereby two Rackham books, a long one and a shorter one, were published together annually. Thus in 1931, they brought out Walton's The Compleat Angler and Clement Moore's poem The Night Before Christmas. The limited edition of the latter sold out promptly." (Hamilton, p. 142).

        Die Geschwister von Neapel. Roman.

      Wien, Zsolnay, 1931. 498 + 1 S. OLwd. EA. Mit einer eighd. Widm. Werfels an Paul Stefan. - Gesammelte Werke. - Ebd. etw. fleckig, R. etw. angegriffen, im Ganzen leichte Gbrsp. - Stefan, (1879 - 1943), studierte an der Univ. Wien Jura, Philosophie und Kunstgeschichte, hauptsächlich jedoch Musiktheorie bei Hermann Grädener und Komposition bei Arnold Schönberg. Nach Reisen und kurzer Beamtentätigkeit wurde er einer der bemerkenswertesten modernen Musikschriftsteller und -kritiker, war seit 1923 Hauptschriftleiter der \"Musikblätter des Anbruchs\" und schrieb viele Jahre u.a. für die \"Neue Zürcher Zeitung\" und \"Musical America\". 1922 gehörte er zu den Gründern der Internationalen Gesellschaft für Neue Musik und hatte mehrere Jahre das Amt des Vizepräsidenten der österr. Sektion inne. Er war auch Dozent am Wiener Reinhardt-Seminar. 1938 emigrierte Stefan in die Schweiz. Über Paris und Lissabon kam er 1941 in die USA. Er schrieb u.a. Gustav Mahler (1910, (8)1920) und Das Neue Haus. Wiener Oper 1869-1919 (1919). - Werfel, (1890 - 1945), wurde mit seiner hymnischen Lyriksammlung Der Weltfreund (1911) über Nacht berühmt. 1912-14 war er Lektor des Kurt Wolff Verlags in Leipzig. 1916/17 diente er als Soldat an der ostgalizischen Front, anschließend im Wiener Kriegspresseamt. Im November 1917 lernte er Alma Mahler-Gropius kennen, die er 1929 heiratete. Als Mitglied der sozialistischen \"Roten Garde\" Egon Erwin Kischs rief W. im November 1918 zum Sturm auf die Banken auf. Während Werfels erster, expressionistischer Schaffensperiode dominierte die Lyrik … In seinen Werken zwischen den Weltkriegen herrschte der neusachliche Stil vor, der aber von psychologisierenden Elementen und zunehmend religiösen Themenstellungen durchsetzt ist … Der Familienroman Die Geschwister von Neapel (1931) war die Frucht zahlreicher Italienaufenthalte … Unmittelbar nach dem \"Anschluß\" Österreichs im März 1938 emigrierte Werfel nach Frankreich, wo der von kath. Frömmigkeit erfüllte Roman Der veruntreute Himmel (1939) entstand wie auch das Romanfragment Cella oder Die Überwinder (1954) über den \"Anschluß\" und den Antisemitismus in Österreich -- ein Thema, das auch im Mittelpunkt der Novelle Eine blaßblaue Frauenschrift (1941) steht. Nach der deutschen Invasion in Frankreich floh W. über Spanien, Portugal in die USA, wo er sich schließlich in Beverly Hills niederließ. Der Legendenroman Das Lied von Bernadette (dt. 1941; amerikan. 1942) wurde zu einem Welterfolg. Die Erfahrung der Flucht aus Frankreich bildet den Hintergrund zu der Komödie Jacobowsky und der Oberst (1944), dem wohl besten Drama W.s. Die Essays und Aphorismen in Between Heaven and Earth (1944) und der kulturkritische, utopische Roman Stern der Ungeborenen (1946), der unmittelbar vor seinem Tod fertig wurde, zeigen eindringlich sein Bemühen um eine Aussöhnung von Judentum und Christentum. (Beides DBE). Versand D: 7,00 EUR Widmungsexemplare

Cent nouvelles nouvelles est un recueil de nouvelles commandé par le duc de Bourgogne Philippe le Bon qui en est le dédicataire et le reçoit en 1462. C'est le premier recueil moderne de contes de la littérature française. De la main d'un rédacteur unique, il présente cent histoires d'inspiration très libre, d'allure très gauloise, qui sont autant d'attaques lancées contre les femmes et les religieux; elles sont présentées par trente-six conteurs, tous personnages historiques membres de la cour de Philippe le Bon. Les Cent nouvelles nouvelles ont été longtemps attribuées à tort à Antoine de La Sale, qui aurait signé la cinquantième de celles-ci. L'historien Pierre Champion hésite entre Philippe de Loan et Philippe Pot mais c'est à ce dernier qu'il propose en définitive de reconnaître la paternité du recueil. Edition illustrée [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Scarce Typed Letter Signed on "Pierpont-Morgan Library" stationery

      New York, 1931. unbound. 1 page, 11 x 8 inches, New York City, February 7, 1931, to acclaimed military surgeon Frank Lester Pleadwell, in full: "In reply to your letter of January 31, we will be very glad to have you make any use you desire of the Halleck and Drake's Croaker poems in this library, of which we sent you Photostats." Minor fraying at the right-hand margin, but still in very good condition. African-American librarian, who as the personal assistant to J.P. Morgan, and later his estate, from 1905 to 1948, personally helped amass one of the world's greatest libraries of books, rare manuscripts, and art. Note: Belle da Costa Greene was born Belle Marian Greener, the daughter of the first black man to graduate Harvard, changed her name, obliterated her true background, invented a Portuguese ancestry, and successfully "passed" for white in turn-of-the-century New York Society, never acknowledging her African lineage. All of this might help to explain why she is absent from some of the most prestigious and permanent collections of Africa-American history. There are currently no offerings on the internet of anything signed by da Costa Greene.

        PHOTOGRAPH ***Signed***

      - Inscribed "To Mark / Love & Kisses, / Mamie Van Doren" in black ink. Mamie Van Doren (born February 6, 1931) is a United States actress, model, and entertainer. Van Doren was born as Joan Lucille Olander in Rowena, South Dakota. Her mother named her after Joan Crawford. In the early 1940s her family moved to Southern California. She entered beauty contests, winning the title of Miss Palm Springs in 1948, and was a singer for various local bands. She appeared in various bit parts in movies starting in 1950. That year she had her brief first marriage to Jack Newman. She posed for famous pin-up girl artist Alberto Vargas in 1951. In 1953 she was signed by Universal Studios with the hope she could bring the studio success similar to that of Marilyn Monroe at 20th Century Fox. The studio gave Joan Olander her new name of Mamie Van Doren. The Mamie may have been inspried by Mamie Eisenhower, wife of newly inaugurated President Dwight D. Eisenhower. She changed her name on January 20, 1953. While Van Doren didn't atain the level of stardom of Monroe, she did become one of the era's leading sex symbols. With Jayne Mansfield, Mamie, and Marylin were known as the Three M's. Van Doren played more of the bad girl archetype. She appeared in some of the first Hollywood films to include Rock & Roll music. She became identified with this rebellious style, and made some Rock records in the 1950s. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
