        Original-Fotopostkarte mit dem Blick auf die Uferpromenade von Ascona, beschrieben hauptsächlich in der Handschrift des "Seelöwen" [unaufgelöst] an den Kunstsammler Heinrich Kirchhoff in Wiesbaden.

      Ascona, Verlag von Foto-Pancaldi, datiert vom 12. September 1931,. 14,2 x 8,9 cm, ungelaufen und ohne Briefmarke (wohl im verschlossenen Briefumschlag verschickt), mit zwei skizzenhaften Zeichnungen mit Tinte, beide wohl die Tänzerin Tatjana Barbakoff darstellend, eine mit ihrem handschriftlichen Zusatz: "Kommen!!" und ihrer Unterschift, die Skizzen von Christian Rohlfs, eine von ihm monogrammiert, die andere nur mit "T.B" bezeichnet, daneben eine weitere unaufgelöste Signatur. Ferner noch weitere Grüße von "Kulli" und "Schäfchen". Zustand: I.. Seit 1927 lebten Helene und Christian Rohlfs in Ascona. Im Sommer 1931, wenige Wochen vor der Datierung dieser Postkarte, entstand dort der Tatjana-Zyklus: 21 Blätter und mehrere Kohlezeichnungen, die die russische Ausdruckstänzerin Tatjana Barbakoff (1899 bis 1944, eigentlich Tispara Edelberg, ermordert im Konzentrationslager Auschwitz) darstellen. Zu ihrem Aufenthalt und den Auftritten in Ascona zu diesem Zeitpunkt siehe ausführlich in: Tatjana Barbakoff, Tänzerin und Muse, Nr. 43 Schriftenreihe Verein August Macke Haus Bonn, 2002, z. B. Seite 177. - Der Wiesbadener Sammler und Kunstmäzen Heinrich Kirchhoff (1874-1934) sammelte nicht nur Kunst, sondern unterstützte auch Künstler (beispielsweise Felixmüller, Jacob und vor allem Jawlensky). Durch diese engen Verbindungen zu den Künstlern entstanden auch einige Porträts Kirchhoffs, von seiner Frau Tony und seinem Garten. In seiner direkten Nachbarschaft in der Beethovenstraße wohnte auch Alexej von Jawlensky; mit Jawlensky verband ihn eine enge Freundschaft. Nach dem Tod von Heinrich Kirchhoff wurde seine Sammlung aufgelöst. - Literatur: Katalog Christian Rohlfs, Kunsthalle der Hypo-Kulturstiftung, München, 1996, Blatt 120 (Tatjana-Zyklus). - Zu Tatjana Barbakoff siehe Weltkunst, Heft 2, 2003, Seite 192f. mit einer Wiedergabe aus dem Ascona-Zyklus (Mongolischer Fahnentanz IV). - Tatjana Barbakoff, Tänzerin und Muse, Nr. 43 der Schriftenreihe Verein August Macke Haus, Bonn. - Zur Privatsammlung Heinrich Kirchhoff siehe ausführlich Renate Petzinger: Sammlung Heinrich Kirchhoff in: Expressionismus im Rhein-Main-Gebiet, Künstler-Händler-Sammler, Ausstellungskatalog Museum Giersch, Frankfurt am Main, 2011, Seite 289 bis 303.

        Neuer Lächerlich-jedoch vernünfftiger, bescheidener und Curioser Narren-Calender / Auf das Jahr 1710. Worinnen von Monat zu Monat ein nach seiner Natur und Eigenschafft entworffener Narr / nach dem jetzigen Stylum der Welt / auf das accurateste beschrieben wird. Eine Invention, welche schon zum Vierdten mahl continuiret und an das Tages-Liecht kommet / auch wegen sowohl beygefügter Nothwendigkeit des Calenders / als lustigen Schreib-Art der Curiosen Welt zur angenehmen Gemüths-Ergötzung dienen kan.

      Freystadt [fingiert], Peter Marteau.. 16 x 18,5 cm. Tit. (in Rot- u. Schwarzdr.), 30 Bll. Mit Kalendarium in Rot- und Schwarzdruck u. einigem Holzschnitt-Zierrat. OBrosch. m. Deckelbild in Kupferstich. Rücken m. blauem Papierstreifen verstärkt u. m. altem hs. Titelschildchen. Vorderdeckel m.

Tl. eselsohrig.. Kosch XI, 108; Böck L., Ein Altwiener Narrenkalender (in Zs. f. Bücherfreunde 23 Jg., Hft. 3, 1931, Ss. 41-45). Sehr selten. Einer von (vermutlich) acht erschienenen Jahrgängen des 'Narrencalenders', verfasst und anonym herausgegeben von Johann Valentin Neiner (1679-1748), einem Weltpriester in der Nachfolge von Abraham a Sancta Clara, der sein lebenslanges Vorbild war. N. gab die Schriften seines großen Lehrmeisters heraus, dessen Nachruf er auch 1709 verfasste. Er beschrieb, ähnlich wie dieser in satirisch-volkstümlichen Mahnrufen die Ereignisse seiner Zeit und produzierte neben Kanzelreden auch so genannte Narren-, Moral- und Sittensatiren. - Von den bibliographisch nachgewiesenen acht Jahrgängen dieses Kalenders hat sich nur wenig erhalten. Ludwig Böck konnte seinerzeit nur 3 Jahrgänge auffinden: "Als Drucker und Verleger ist Peter Marteau in Freystadt (in einem anderen Jahrgang: Cöln) genannt, ein sicheres Zeichen, daß der wahre Druckort noch zu suchen ist. .. Jeder Jahrgang enthält neben derb-satirisch gehaltenen Prognostika auf die vier Jahreszeiten, die, von der bei Moralisten üblichen Übertreibung abgesehenen, sehr schätzbare Beiträge zum Bilde der Zeit liefern, und zu jedem Monat eine Abhandlung über eine Spezies von Narren. .. Zeichnen sich durch die Mannigfaltigkeit der Einfälle, die Kühnheit und den Bilderreichtum der Sprache, die Schlagfertigkeit des Witzes, sowie durch reifes und scharfes Urteil über die menschlichen Laster und Verkehrtheiten aus, und .. auch wertvolle zeitgeschichtliche Züge.."

        CHARLES WHIBLEY A Memoir

      Oxford University Press , 1931. Oxford University Press , 1931. First edition. A single quire bound in original buff sewn wrappers printed in black. Author's presentation copy, inscribed to Bonamy Dobreé on the upper wrapper, "B.M. from T.S.E.". Wrappers somewhat browned to edges, a very good copy. Bonamy Dobreé (1891-1974) was the only son of a family of wealthy Guernsey bankers. Having distinguished himself at Cambridge after the war, he published a pioneering study of Restoration Comedy in 1924 and immersed himself in the English literary scene, forming acquaintanceships with Pound, Lawrence, and the Bloomsbury Group. It was at one of the Woolfs' parties at Richmond House that he first met Eliot and almost immediately formed a lively friendship. Dobreé became a regular contributor to, and one of Eliot's closest associates at, Criterion. In 1936 Dobreé moved to Leeds where he became Professor of English Literature, a post he maintained until 1955. Dobrée's papers, now at Leeds, show a regular correspondence with Eliot until the latter's death in 1974.

Born to George Knowles and Abigail Hassinger Langdon in Monroe, Michigan, Langdon studied at the University of Michigan, participating in Phi Beta Kappa and earning an A. B. in 1898 and an A. M. in 1899. Following this he went to New York's Union Theological Seminary, graduating in 1903, and then on to Columbia University to obtain a Ph.D. in 1904. Langdon then became a fellow of Columbia in France (1904-1906), during which time he was ordained as a deacon of the Church of England (1905) in Paris. Subsequently he moved to Oxford University in England, becoming a Shillito reader in Assyriology in 1908, a British citizen in 1913, and after the retirement of Archibald Sayce, a Professor of Assyriology in 1919. However, in 1916, when World War I had diminished the size of his classes in England, he spent some time at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, serving as the curator of its Babylonian section.His studies on the Near East, here collected in an edition intended for a popular audience, though superceded by others' later work were considered pioneering in their time.

Near contemporary red morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, spine gilt in compartments with fish tools, boards gilt panelled with fish cornerpieces, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt.

This is one of the 10 special copies commissioned by Harrap, which has the deluxe leather binding and an original watercolour. Each of the 10 watercolours depicts a different scene. Describing his artistic method for these "specials", Rackham pointed out that, "my little sketches must inevitably be of a light hearted or joking nature... They have to be spontaneous and free handed. The nature of the paper is such that there can be no preparatory drawing and no alterations". A superb copy, very handsomely bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe.

        The World Crisis: The Eastern Front

      London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1931. London: Thornton Butterworth Limited, 1931. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Very good. This is the sixth and final book of Churchill&#39;s acclaimed history of the First World War and essential to filling a full set of British first editions. Scarcity owes to the fact that the first printing was just 5150 copies, as opposed to 7500 for the British first edition of each of the preceding five books. Consequently these are rarely offered outside of sets. In proposing the book to his publisher, Churchill wrote: "In the previous volumes of the World Crisis I have described only in a few pages the course of events in the Eastern theatre. They have merely been the background of our main drama of the war. But now I think I might write a volume called &#39;The Eastern Front&#39;, which would be separate from but supplementary to our five volume history." Here is the first British edition, first printing, a very good copy. The blue cloth binding remains square and tight with bright spine gilt, but does show some wear to extremities and the overall scuffing to which this smooth cloth binding proved susceptible. The contents remain notably bright and clean for the edition. We find no previous ownership marks. All 8 photographic illustrations, and all maps and plans, are present and intact, including the notoriously fragile color folding map at page 368. We note only a hint of spotting within, substantially confined to the half-title and title pages. The page edges remain unusually clean with only slight age-toning. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.2(V).a, Woods/ICS A31(ab), Langworth p.105.

        India

      London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., 1931. London: Thornton Butterworth Ltd., 1931. 1st Edition. Paperback. Near fine. This is a collection of speeches by Churchill as part of his campaign against the India Bill over which he broke with his party leadership. Though his cause was lost, these speeches are considered to contain some of the finest examples of Churchill&#39;s rhetorical brilliance. This first edition, second printing is bound in the exact same style as the first printing and was issued in the same month as the first printing; it is commonly seen in green wraps. However, a small number of second printing copies were issued with the same orange wraps as the first printing. Such copies are rare. Here is a superior example for collectors. The notoriously fragile orange wraps binding is excellent. The covers are bright and complete with no losses or tears. There is a tiny smudge on the "B" in "BY" on the front cover and a touch of wear at the corners. The spine is of particular note, being exceptionally well-preserved with no visible horizontal creases and only a trivial hint of wear at the base of the spine. The contents are bright with no previous ownership marks. Light spotting is intermittent throughout, heavier at the few first and final leaves and the page edges. The book is protected in a removable, archival quality mylar sleeve. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A92.1.e, Woods/ICS A38(a.2), Langworth p.150

        DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE (Original Paramount "File Copy" Script for the 1931 Film Adaptation Starring Frederic March & Directed By Rouben Mamoulian) (Screenplay By Samuel Hoffenstein & Percy Heath)

      Hollywood: Paramount Studios, 1931. Hollywood: Paramount Studios, 1931. [Stevenson, Robert Louis]. DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE. Hollywood, Ca: Paramount Studios, 1931. Original Paramount "File Copy" Script for the 1931 Film Adaptation starring Frederic March and Miriam Hopkins, directed By Rouben Mamoulian, screenplay by Samuel Hoffenstein & Percy Heath. Complete Original 93pp mimeographed RELEASE DIALOGUE SCRIPT with Paramount studio stamp on the cover and several scattered penciled markings throughout. The cover page is a little worn otherwise the script is in Very Good condition. THIS APPEARS TO BE THE VERY SCRIPT THAT PARAMOUNT SENT TO MGM TO "COPY" AS THE TEMPLATE FOR THE 1941 REMAKE WITH SPENCER TRACY, INGRID BERGMAN & LANA TURNER. (Note that it is titled #1 on an MGM Script Department Sticker affixed to the front cover). Laid in is a note stamped Apr 10, 1940 which specifically reads: "This has been copied in Script Dept" with several recipients of this information being listed. DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE was that rare Hollywood occasion where virtually the exact same script was used for two different versions of the same film (Paramount 1931, MGM 1941). Writers Samuel Hoffenstein and Percy Heath were uncredited on the later film which was adapted by John Lee Mahin but the versions are notably similar. The 1941 film was not the critical success that the 1931 version had been; Frederic March famously sent his friend Tracy an amusing telegram thanking him for his biggest career boost, as Tracy&#39;s performance was routinely savaged when compared with March&#39;s version. Accompanying the script is an excellent original vintage "key book" photo of Frederic March as Mr. Hyde. March&#39;s performance in this film won him the Best Actor In A Leading Role Oscar. The screenplay itself was also nominated for an Academy Award. A remarkable Hollywood artifact associated with BOTH film versions of Stevenson&#39;s iconic classic.. Signed. Printed Wrappers. Very Good.

The Compleat Angler or The Contemplative Man&#146;s Recreation. Being a Discourse of Rivers, Fishponds, Fish and Fishing not unworthy the Perusal of most Anglers. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham.

Title printed in green and black.Bound c. 1931 by Birdsall of Northhampton for Charles Scribner&#39;s Sons in full forest green morocco with triples fillets border and central varicolored portrait onlay of Izaak Walton. Gilt framed and ornamented compartments. Top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Broad turn-ins with gilt rolls. Original endpapers preserved. A fine copy. In binder&#39;s dust jacket.The roots of Birdsall of Northampton "stretch back to the early eighteenth century but it was in 1792 that John Lacy&#39;s Northampton bindery was acquired by William Birdsall, continuing in his family until 1961...In Birdsall&#39;s heyday, Gerring (Notes on Bookbinding, 1899) reported a staff of 250 engaged in making ladies handbags, fancy boxes, and stationary; as well as all types of bookbinding. The firm seemed always ready to experiment and careful records and samples were kept by Richard Birdsall, great-great-nephew of the founder, until he died in 1909...The firm&#39;s collection of over 3,000 finishing tools passed to the University of Toronto" (Maggs, Bookbinding in the British Isles II, #262, and #321).Izaak Walton (1593-1683), &#147;English biographer, who is best known for The Compleat Angler (1653), a classic guide to the joys of fishing with over 300 new printings. It combines practical information about angling with folklore. The story of three friends, traveling through the English countryside, is enlivened by occasional songs, ballads, quotations from several writers, and glimpses of an idyllic and now lost rural life&#133;The Compleat Angler was a combination of manual and meditation. &#145;Angling may be said to be so like the mathematics that it can never be fully learnt.&#146; (The Compleat Angler) The work became one of the most reprinted books in the history of British letters. The story is of three sportsmen: a fisherman (Piscator, who is Walton himself), a huntsman (Venator), and a fowler (Auceps). They travel along the river Lea on the first day in May and discuss the relative merits of their favorite pastimes. Auceps tells how &#145;the very birds of the air, those that be not Hawks, are both so many and so useful and pleasant to mankind, that I must not let them pass without some observations. They both feed and refresh him; feed him with their choice bodies, and refresh him with their heavenly voices.&#146; In his own turn Venator defends hunting: &#145;Hunting trains up the younger nobility to the use of manly exercises in their riper age. What more manly exercise than hunting the Wild Boar, the Stag, the Buck, the Fox, or the Hare? How doth it preserve health, and increase strength and activity!&#146; And finally Piscator reminds his friends: &#145;I might tell you that Almighty God is said to have spoken to a fish, but never to a beast; that he hath made a whale a ship, to carry and set his prophet, Jonah, safe on the appointed shore.&#146; Walton drew his work on Nicholas Breton&#39;s (c. 1545-1626) fishing idyll Wits Trenchmour (1597). The second edition was largely rewritten and in the fifth edition Walton wrote about fly-fishing on the river Dove, a subject the author himself knew little about. The last [i.e., fifth] edition was published in 1676 and included additional material by Charles Cotton (Instructions how to Angle for a Trout or Grayling in a Clear Stream) and Colonel Robert Venables&#39;s The Experienced Angler, or Angling Improved. Walton called this work The Universal Angler. He had taught Cotton but never met Venables&#148; (&#147;Izaak Walton (1593-1683)&#148; at Pegasos&#151;A Literature Related Resource Site).Latimore & Haskell, pp. 66-67. Riall, p. 175.
