        Light and life. Address delivered at the opening meeting of the International Congress on Light Therapy in Copenhagen 15. August 1932.Copenhagen: IIe Congrès International de la Lumière, 1932.

      First edition of this famous lecture, which marks Bohr's first detailed attempt to apply concepts arising from quantum mechanics (particularly complementarity) to areas outside physics. "Here, for the first time, Bohr raised a question that was to preoccupy him, off and on, until his death: Would it ever be possible to push the analysis of living processes to the limit where they can be described in terms of pure physics and chemistry?" (Pais, p. 441). Bohr's lecture can be viewed as one of the foundation stones of molecular biology in that it inspired the young physicist Max Delbrück-who was in the audience when Bohr delivered it-to switch from physics to biology. "It is fair to say that with Max, Bohr found his most influential philosophical disciple outside the domain of physics, in that through Max, Bohr provided one of the intellectual fountainheads for the development of 20th century biology" (quoted in Pais, p. 442). This pamphlet, dated 1932, apparently predates both the lecture's publication in Danish in <i>Naturens Verden</i>, in English in <i>Nature</i>, and in German in <i>Naturwissenschaften</i>, all of which were published in 1933.<br/><br/> "Bohr had a life-long interest in philosophy, publishing three volumes of philosophical essays. He was also the son of the distinguished physiologist Christian Bohr, a student of Carl Ludwig, who discovered the cooperative binding of oxygen to hemoglobin. It is therefore not entirely surprising that, when he was asked to give a lecture at the International Congress of Light Therapists in Copenhagen in August 1932, Niels Bohr chose to speak on the philosophy of biology. His lecture, the text of which was subsequently published in <i>Nature</i>, was entitled 'Light and Life'. <br/><br/> "In 'Light and Life,' Bohr noted that one of the fundamental tenets of quantum mechanics was the principle of complementarity.. 4to (236 x 158 mm), pp 10, original printed wrappers, a virtually mint copy.

        L'opposition et les cases conjuguées sont réconciliées par / Opposition und Schwesterfelder sind versöhnt durch / Opposition and Sister Squares are reconcilied by DUCHAMP et HALBERSTADT.

      Paris - Bruxelles, Editons de L'Echiquier, Edm. Lancel / Gaston Legrain, 1932. - 28 x 24,5 cm, 115 p., 254 fig., 7 diagrammes sur calque, bien complet des deux errata. Broché, couv. cartonnée édit. impr. en rouge. Parfait état. Rare édition originale, trilingue.- "the book is concerned with that very special point of the endgame in chess when all the pieces have been lost, only the Kings and a few pawns remain on the board. And this special 'lone-pawns' situation is treated only from the even more particular situation in which the pawns have been blocked and only the Kings can play. This situation is called zugzwang, a German term of international use that indicates this blocked position in which only certain moves, and in a limited number, are possible. In this case (pawns blocked and only the Kings being able to move), even though they make use of conclusions already established by Abbe Durand, Drtina, Bianchette, etc., Duchamp and Halberstadt are the first to have noticed the synchronisation of the moves of the black King and the white King. This synchronisation is analysed at length and forms the basis of their system. In order to win, a white King cannot move indiscriminately without regard for the colour of the square on which he finds himself. Using the terminology of the authors of the book, he must choose a 'heterodox opposition' with respect to the colour of the square occupied by the black King. This 'heterodox opposition,' which represents the real contribution of Duchamp and Halberstadt to the theory of chess, would demand a technical explanation too lengthy to be given here. At any rate, for clarity I would add that the game of chess does contain the idea of 'opposition,' and that Duchamp and Halberstadt have renamed it 'orthodox opposition' in order to distinguish it form the 'heterodox opposition' that they have discovered. This 'orthodox opposition' is something that all chess players know about, and it is far form being a mystery. It is a sure means of winning in certain situations. In fact, 'heterodox opposition' is no more than an amplification of opposition. It is simply applied to a longer number of squares, and it adopts various forms that are missing in the rigid 'orthodox opposition." (Ian Randall, Re-evaluating the Art & Chess of Marcel Duchamp).

Die Bücher Steiners sind dicke Bände verworrenster Okultlehren, die heute nur noch Anthroposophen zugänglich gemacht werden. Sie werden dadurch nicht wertvoller! Steiner hat die okkulten Lehren, die zum induzierten Irresein verführen, unter einem großen Phrasenschwall verhüllt. Er hat die gleiche Unverfrorenheit, wie viele für jüdisch-völkische Ziele wirkende Juden, gar manches, was vernünftig klingt, von anderen zu übernehmen, um dadurch umso sicherer auch geistig wertvollere Menschen anzuziehen. Schält man den Phrasenschwall aber weg und holt die zum Schwachsinn, ja zur völligen Geisteskrankheit verführenden Wahnlehren heraus, dann freilich zeigt sich das Ungesunde und auch das für die politische geheime Tätigkeit so Wichtige, daß nämlich seine Opfer von ihm auf das furchtbarste beeinflusst werden konnten, wie er dies ja auch mit dem Generalstabschef Moltke vor der Marneschlacht zu erfolgreich getan hat. . . . Steiner war Jude. Er selbst hat das zwar oft bestritten und seine Anhänger bestreiten es heute noch. Die nächsten Freunde und Verwalter seines Geistesgutes zu Steiners Lebzeiten waren Juden. Das beweist noch nichts, lässt aber Schlüsse zu. Seinem Aussehen nach war Steiner Jude. Jüdisches Aussehen ohne jüdisches Blut wäre ein biologisches Weltwunder. Wunder auf diesem Gebiet gibt es nicht. Seine Sprache war jüdisch, er mauschelte. Seine Schreibweise ist jüdisch, sie ist gemauschelt. Es genügt, einen Blick auf seine nachgelassenen Schriften zu werfen. Sie sind nicht nachgefeilt und tragen infolgedessen das Mauschelgepräge ganz unverhüllt. Sein Auftreten war jüdisch. Unbefangene haben sich vielfach hierdurch abgestoßen gefühlt und sind, zu ihrem Glück, dadurch den gelegten Schlingen entgangen. Seine Lehre ist jüdisch. Wem das alles noch kein vollgültiger Beweis ist, der wird vielleicht zur Einsicht gelangen, wenn er erfährt, daß Steiner in einem unbedachten Augenblick die Maske hat fallen lassen. Er hat sich in einem Zeitpunkt freudigster Erregung über das Gelingen seiner Lebensarbeit als volkstreuen Juden bekannt . . . Seine Geisteslehre schillert in allen Farben, sie enthält alles, vom plumpsen Aberglauben bis zu hohen geistigen Ansprüchen. Er ist Spiritist und Hellseher, er hat eine neue Seelenwanderungslehre aufgestellt und eine neue Religion gestiftet, er nennt sie das 5.Evangelium. In diesem lehrt er, daß seinerzeit 2 Jesus Knaben geboren worden sind: in dem einen inkarnierte sich Zarathustra, während der andere normal blieb. Als die beiden Knaben 12 Jahre alt wurden, wechselte der Geistes Zarathustras aus dem Körper des ersten in den des zweiten über. Als dieser zweite 30Jahre alt wurde, da befiel ihn außerdem noch der Astralleib Buddhas\" / \"Nach allgemeinen zutreffenden Ausführungen über die Rassenunterschiede behandelte der Redner die Streitfrage des Artiertums Jesu, wobei er zu dem Schluss kam: \"Jesus war ein J u d e .\" - \"Aber\", so fuhr der Redner fort, \"das interessiert uns gar nicht; das wollen wir gar nicht wissen! Wir wollen Jesus d e u t s c he r l e b e n. - Der Arierparagraph für Kirchenbeamte, sagte der Redner (der Deutschen Christen) bestehe zu vollem Recht; denn einem Judenchristen sei die artgemäße Verkündigung des Evangeliums aufgrund des aus dem Blut stammenden Rasseunterschiedes u n m ö g l i c h .

        Original Schutz-Pass: Two signed documents. Budapest, 26 September 1944

      1. An original Schutz-Pass (protective passport,), issued for Ernst J. Rappaport, born 11 September 1932, with his photo attached. The passport was designed by Wallenberg, and printed in blue and yellow (the Swedish national colors), with text in German and Hungarian, stating that the named person will travel for repatriation to Sweden and until departure is under the protection of the Swedish embassy. With the stamped seal of the Swedish Embassy in Budapest. Press numbered at the top "90/96". Signed by Wallenberg as often with a simple pen-mark, counter-signed by the Swedish ambassador to Hungary, Carl Ivan Danielsson, who was also recognized by Israel with the decoration "Righteous among the Nations" for his work in organizing the Swedish legation's rescue mission. 2. A typed and printed document, on letterhead of the Royal Swedish Embassy in Budapest, numbered "R. 03414," "Sp.: 9096," and "Liste :316," and bearing their stamped seal, signed in full by Wallenberg. In Hungarian, it reads: "To the 'National Central Authority for Supervising Foreigner', Budapest: We have the honour to inform you that the Swedish Royal Embassy in Budapest issued a protecting-passport [Schutzpass, in Hungarian: védöútlevet] to Mr. Erno J. Rappaport, by this he is identified as a Swedish subject. The Embassy kindly requests to give to the named exemption from [wearing] the yellow badge [star]. The Embassy confirms that the bilateral agreements with Sweden regarding the relevant edict is applied. Budapest, September 25, 1944. / Yours sincerely, / [signed] Raoul Wallenberg / acting for the Swedish Royal Ambassador. The Swedish Royal Secretary of the Embassy." These papers, always kept together (as evidenced by folds and paper clip marks,) saved the life of a 12 year-old Jewish boy in Budapest. "Raoul Wallenberg was the most inventive, daring, and successful rescuer of Jews from the Nazis during the period of the Final Solution," The Holocaust Encyclopedia, ed. Laqueur. From July 1944, when the 32 year-old business man-turned diplomat, from a wealthy Swedish family, arrived in Budapest, until his arrest by the Soviet Army on 17 January 1945, he issued documents which saved thousands from deportation and death. In March 1944 Hungary was occupied by German troops, and a Nazi-appointed government took power. Under the direction of Adolf Eichmann, a special unit was set up to annihilate the remaining Hungarian Jews. In May, deportations to Auschwitz began, at the rare of 12,000 per day. The Jews of Budapest were by new laws deprived of their civil rights and property, and forced to wear yellow stars. Later they were concentrated into so-called Yellow Star Houses and not allowed outside, a prelude to the ghetto and deportation. In July, after protests from the king of Sweden, the Red Cross, and the U.S. secretary of state, the deportations were stopped. During this time, the Swedish legation issued provisional passports to persons with family or business connections in Sweden, however the number permitted was small, and they then began to issue certificates declaring that application for Swedish citizenship had been made. By July some 700 passports and certificates had been issued. Ambassador Danielsson requested additional support for the legation's work, at the same time that President Roosevelt had sent Iver Olsen to Stockholm as an official representative of the American War Refugee Board, to search for a Swede willing and able to go to Budapest to organize a rescue program for the Jews. Raoul Wallenberg was selected for the assignment and arrived in Budapest on July 9. Wallenberg wanted to give protective documents to every Hungarian Jew who applied. He began issuing a new document of his own design, known as a Schutz-Pass, it was numbered. printed in yellow and blue, and bore three crowns of Sweden, and official seals and and signatures. In August 1944 Wallenberg met with Hungarian regent Miklós Horthy and won permission to issue 5000 of these passports (later increased to 7500). Hungarian authorities agreed to recognize the holders of the passports as Swedish subjects awaiting repatriation. They were allowed to live in houses rented by the legation. Long lines formed outside the Swedish embassy, and forgeries were also produced. Soon the number of Jews protected by Sweden, chiefly by Wallenberg's efforts, rose to 15 to 20 thousand. After the Arrow Cross coup in October, Wallenberg continued his work, at great personal risk, rescuing additional thousands at railway station, houses, from the forced march to Austria, and in the sealed ghetto. When the Red Army invaded Budapest in January 1945, Wallenberg was arrested on suspicion of spying for the United States, and disappeared. By his efforts he is thought to have directly saved some 25,000 persons' lives, and indirectly, another 70,000.

        DUCHAMP (Marcel) & HALBERSTADT (Vitaly)

      1932 1141 - Paris - Bruxelles, Editons de L'Echiquier, Edm. Lancel / Gaston Legrain, 1932, in-8, 112 pp, (2) de réclame, complet des deux feuillets d'errata, broché, couverture imprimée, Rare édition originale, trilingue, de cet ouvrage composé par deux passionnés d'échecs : Vitaly Halberstadt (1903-1967), compositeur de problèmes, surtout d'études et de finales artistiques et Marcel Duchamp (1887-1968) plasticien et homme de lettres. Tous les deux étaient de très bons joueurs : Halbersadt participait régulièrement au championnat de Paris, dont il gagna la première édition en 1925 (ex-æquo avec Baratz) ; Duchamp fut sacré champion de sa région de Haute-Normandie en 1924 et participa même à des Olympiades d'échecs avec l'équipe de France. De plus, le jeu d&#146;échecs est une activité et un thème pictural essentiels qui se prêtent à des variations multiples dans les premières années du parcours artistique de Marcel Duchamp. L'ouvrage se compose de 254 figures et 7 diagrammes sur calques, l'impression est en noir pour les textes et en rouge et noir pour les représentations d'échiquiers. Les deux auteurs s'intéressent en particulier au "zugzwang", terme allemand qui vient de "Zug" le coup, et "Zwang" la contrainte ; soit dans le cas d'un problème d'échecs et de fin de partie, la situation d'un joueur qui est obligé de jouer un coup qui le fait perdre ou dégrade sa position : un exemple typique de "zugzwang" est l'opposition des rois dans les finales de pions. Oscillant entre manuel spécialisé, livre d'artiste ou encore ouvrage pataphysique, "L&#146;Opposition et les cases conjuguées sont réconciliées" est un ouvrage de bel facture et richement illustré. On joint à cet ouvrage, le livre "Marcel Duchamp, joueur d'échecs et ou ????? deux sujets s"y rapportant", propos de François Le Lionnais recueillis par Ralph Rumney, publié par L'échoppe à 150 exemplaire à l'occasion du nouvel an 1997 "et du (presque) quatre-vingtième anniversaire de Foutain de R. Mutt". Texte qui parut initialement dans "Studio International" Londres, janvier février 1975 où était reproduite une partie d'échecs jouée à Paris en 1932 entre Marcel Duchamp et François Le Lionnais, commentée par S. Tartacover. A l'intérieur, une carte signée par Patrice Contensin fondateur de la maison d'édition "L'Échoppe" en 1984 et traducteur de l'ouvrage. Couverture frottée. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Hydrogen Isotope of Mass 2 WITH Hydrogen Isotope of Mass 2 and Its Concentration

      Minneapolis, Minnesota: The American Physical Society, 1932. First Edition. Wraps. Near Fine. First Edition. 191, [1 blank], 8 pages. 7 x 10 inches. The entire issue of the Physical Review, Vol. 39 #1 (Second Series), January 1, 1932 offered. Publisher's original green printed wrappers. A nice copy with minor browning to the covers and spnie panel at the extremities and some creasing to the rear wrapper. Lower corner creasing, overall minor wear. WITH 6, 135, [1 blank], 8 pages. 7 x 10 inches. The entire issue of the Physical Review, Vol. 40 #1 (Second Series), April 1, 1932 offered. Publisher's original green printed wrappers. A nice copy with minor browning to the covers and spine panel. This issue also includes an article on the further development of the cyclotron by Lawrence and Livingston. Wraps. The first article offered here announces the discovery of the deuteron, which we now know as deuterium. The second article, 15 pages long, provides far more detail on the methods used, how the concentration of the new isotope was achieved so that it could be reliably measured. Together, they detail the Discovery of Deuterium. "Deuterium (symbol D or 2H, also known as heavy hydrogen) is one of two stable isotopes of hydrogen. The nucleus of deuterium, called a deuteron, contains one proton and one neutron, whereas the far more common hydrogen isotope, protium, has no neutron in the nucleus. Deuterium has a natural abundance in Earth's oceans of about one atom in 6420 of hydrogen." (wiki) Deuterium has important applications in nuclear reactors, NMR Spectroscopy, geology, and a myriad of other areas. A further article was published in the April issue which addressed in considerably more detail the concentration of the newly discovered isotope and why that worked. "Soon after deuterium's discovery, Urey and others produced samples of "heavy water" in which the deuterium had been highly concentrated." "Harold Clayton Urey (April 29, 1893 - January 5, 1981) was an American physical chemist whose pioneering work on isotopes earned him the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1934 for the discovery of deuterium. He played a significant role in the development of the atom bomb, but may be most prominent for his contribution to theories on the development of organic life from non-living matter...At Johns Hopkins, Urey and Arthur Ruark wrote Atoms, Quanta and Molecules (1930), one of the first English texts on quantum mechanics and its applications to atomic and molecular systems." (wiki) Most often found in bound ex-library volumes, we offer here the original issue of the Physical Review as it was published. See Ezhela, et al,, pp 64-65, (Urey 1932 and Urey 1932B) "Evidence for the deuteron" and "Discovery of the deuteron

        Southern Road

      New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1932. Octavo, maroon cloth lettered in silver over green paper boards, uncut, last signature unopened, original pictorial dust jacket designed by E. Simms Campbell. Small chips to corners and top edge of dust jacket, spine toned. First edition of Sterling Brown's influential first book of poems, inscribed on the front free endpaper in the year of publication: "To Miss Hilda Gottlieb, Sterling A. Brown / October, 1932." James Weldon Johnson, in his introduction, observes of Brown's poems: "he has made more than mere transcriptions of folk poetry, and he has done more than bring to it mere artistry; he has deepened its meanings and multiplied its implications." Moving deftly between poetic registers, Brown explores the rural South ("Kentucky Blues," "Southern Road," "Old King Cotton") and the urban North ("Tin Roof Blues," "Mecca," "Cabaret"), as the old agrarian way of life meets the modern black America of Ma Rainey and Jack Johnson: "Memphis go / Memphis come back, / Ain' no skin / Off de nigger's back. / All dese cities / Ashes, rust. . . . / De win' sing sperrichals / Through deir dus'." Brown would go on to serve as editor of Negro Affairs for the Federal Writers' Project; he taught at Howard University for four decades. A near-fine inscribed copy of a Harlem Renaissance classic, extremely scarce in dust jacket.

      Paris: E. Flammarion, 1932 - Octavo (236 × 187 mm) Original plain light card wraps within the striking "neon" lithographic wrapper, the proofs, 20 leaves (c.252 × 194 mm) loose in matching wraps. The wraps of the book a little chafed at the extremities, light toning of the text, a scatter of foxing to the fore-edge with minor encroachment to the margins, else very good; the proofs and wraps altogether very good. First published in an edition of 500, plus 25 copies hors commerce, this one of 15 offered on Madagascar - the third tier of the edition - and here accompanied by a nearly complete suite - it lacks two of the duller images - of the illustrations offered with the 10 copies on Japon impérial. Lighthearted celebration of the "flora" and "fauna" of the "dancings" - night clubs - that proliferated in Paris in the inter-war years; "The Amercanized term un dancing referred to bars, nightclubs, and cabarets of varying sizes as well as to dance halls themselves. Un dancing, it seemed, required little more than upbeat music and a bit of room to move" (Jackson, Making Jazz French, p41). Miomandre's witty text is accompanied by some splendidly lively illustrations by Henri Gazan, hand-printed by Edmond Desjobert who produced work for Picasso, Chagall and Matisse. Wonderful evocation of les années folles including a "Salut a Joséphine [Baker]" with accompanying illustration which is worth the price of admission on its own.

Fremdes Recht vertiefte diese Wirkung. Wir ließen uns völlig entwurzeln und \"hinauserlösen\". So konnten wir Beute derer werden, die uns die Fremdlehren als ein geschlossenes System aufzwangen und uns lehrten, Fremdes als Arteigenes und Gemüt Ergreifendes anzusehen, und uns jedes freie Forschen verwehrten. Der Bann wurde gebrochen, als Luther die Bannbulle, das Zeichen päpstlicher Gerichtsgewalt in Deutschen Landen, verbrannte. Der Bann wurde gebrochen, als Geistesfürsten Erkenntnisse auf Erkenntnisse häuften, bis im Weltkriege und durch ihn infolge unerhörter Tücke und gewaltiger Schicksalsschläge wieder die Sprache des Erbgutes deutlich vernehmbar wurde, und meine Frau in kühnem und folgerichtigen Geistesbau, auf den Bahnen Kants und Schopenhauers weiterschreitend, den Sinn des Seins erkannte und dabei, im Einklang mit dem Erwachen Deutschen Blutes, die Grundlage legte zur arteigenen Gotterkenntnis und einer Lebensmoral, die den einzelnen wieder fest im Volk verwurzelt. So ist denn Deutsche Weltanschauung wieder geworden, die uns die Einheit von Blut (Rasseerbgut), Glaube, Kultur und Wirtschaft in Einklang mit allen Erkenntnissen der Wissenschaft schafft . . . Nun sprudle wieder, heiliger Quell Deutschen Lebens, stähle Deutschen Selbsterhaltungswillen und Deutsche Kraft, daß wir in dem Befreiungskampf gegen unsere Widersacher uns immer fester zusammenschließen und aus ihm herausschreiten als ein in unserer arteigenen Weltanschauung festverwurzeltes, uns selbst gehörendes, wehrhaftes und freies Volk. Ludendorff.\" - In Aufsätzen von General Erich Ludendorff, Dr. Mathilde Ludendorff (Facharzt für Psychiatrie) u.a. werden Themen behandelt wie z.B.: Blutverwurzeltes Weltbild, Schaffung einer Deutschgermanischen Führung, rassenfeindliche Lehre der Rom-Kirche, christliche Religion blutfremd und rasseleugnend, Rasseerwachen des Deutschen Volkes gleichbedeutend mit Rückkehr zu arteigener Weltanschauung, Befreiung Deutschen Blutes von artfremder Lehre, Deutscher Gottglaube aus Deutschem Blut emporwachsend, de blutverwurzelte Deutsche Gotterkenntnis das unerschütterliche Fundament zur Gestaltung einer Deutschen Kultur und eines Deutschen Rechts, Deutsche Volksschöpfung, materialistische Rassenlehren, Rom und Juda die Prediger der Weltheilslehren, Naturwissenschaftliche Rassenforschung, Keine Verquickung deutscher Sonnenwendfeiern mit Geburtstagen jüdischer Menschen!, Vertarnung des schädlichen Wirkens der Freimaurerei im Deutschen Volk, Deutsches Kunstschaffen, Moralisch verwesende Völker, 20 Jahre Vernichtungskrieg gegen Deutschland, Die Sinnerfüllung des Weltkrieges: deutsche Volksschöpfung, Die Feinde Deutscher Freiheit: Rom und Juda und ihre okkulten Werkzeuge, Macht des Rasseerbgutes, Freimaurerverrat im deutschen Heer 1914, Der völlig okkulte General v.Moltke, Christliche Grausamkeit an deutschen Frauen, Das heilige Amt der Frau und Mutter, Zum Geburtstag des Feldherrn, Die deutsche Frau in Volk und Staat, Unser Hochziel: durchgeistigte Minne, Christentum und Judentum, Wer peitscht in die Gottlosigkeit?, Das Recht der Ehescheidung, Von deutscher Tragik, Jüdische Kabbalistik als Quelle von Okkultismus und Astrologie, Das Marnedrama, Schiller und die Deutsche Frau, Aufgaben und Grenzen eines sittlichen Strafrechts, Samson und Dalila: ein Beitrag zur Frage Rasse und Kunst, Der Untergang des Inka-Reiches und seine Ursachen, Aufruf an die Völker Europas, Kirchenstaat Österreich, Sichert das geltende Strafrecht die Volkserhaltung?, Weltkrieg droht auf Deutschem Boden!, Ringen um Geistesfreiheit gegen kirchlichen Zwang, Das Zeitalter des Rokoko und die Gefahren der Volksseele, Genialität und Kunstunterricht, eine Mahnung an Deutsche Lehrkräfte, Goethe als Freimaurer, Hexenmarterung auch durch protestantische Geistliche, Vom Wesen des Deutschen Weibes, Rasse und Unterricht, Schiller-Verfälschungen, Abrüstung und Sicherheit, Schutz des Volkes vor Rassenmischung, Wie es um Rom steht, Die Stellung der Frau in Heidentum und Christentum, Die Brr Freimaurer von Weimar, Die Erziehung des begabten Kindes, Römische reichszerstörende Politik, Die Judenfrage und die Juden, Erwachen der Christen zum Rassebewusstsein, Deutsche Mutterschaft - Zwang oder Freiwilligkeit?, Die Sintflut-Sage in sumerischer und jüdischer Darstellung, Für die Wehrhaftigkeit des Deutschen Volkes, Die Gotik - ein Kind des Nordens, Der Gnadenstuhl Jahwes, Jesuitische Anmaßung, Was lehrt die \"Anthroposophie\" von Rudolf Steiner?, Katholische Aktion durch das Lexikon, Schutz des Volkes vor seelischer Entwurzelung, Rembrandt als Umdichter der Fremdreligion, Der Deutsche Richter, Der uranische Mensch - das Rätsel unserer Zeit, Wieder eine Bluttat aus religiösem Wahnsinn, Induziert es ihre sein durch okkulte Lehren, Tannenberg, Zarathustras Untergang.

        The Indian Round Table Conference: The Hand Colored Caricatures of Emery Kelen

      [London]: NP, [ca. 1932]. 41 leaves, each 15 by 11 inches, some light toning to the edges of most, European Press service stamp on several, else in fine condition with bright colors. Technically and incomplete set, but still a substantial grouping, as evidence suggests that Kelen would market these separately to the media. Also included are two original drawings by Kelen of Goebbels and his fellow German, Franz Von Papen, probably done at the Lausanne Peace Conference in 1924. OCLC locates only three locations with a full portfolio of eight four plates. Group of 41 caricatures from the first and second Indian Round Table Conferences [1931 and 1932] organized by the British Government to discuss constitutional reforms in India. Three Indian Round Table Conferences occurred between 1930 and 1932. Kelen, who routinely worked with fellow Hungarian, Alois Derso was born in Gyor, Hungary in 1896. His and Derso's collaboration included twenty years of work in Europe and ten in the U.S. They reported on and caricatured diplomats and politicians as well as covered the activities of the League of Nations, eventually leaving Europe in 1938 primarily to escape the growing threat of anti Semitism. Provenance: ex Lt. Colonel V.S.M. de Guinzbourg, United Nations staffer, author of 'Wit and Wisdom of the United Nations' with his custom [?] snake skin portfolio present.

A presentation copy, with a signed autograph inscription from the composer to title in black ink: "Dr. David Bach herzlichs überreicht von seinem Webern Nov. 1932." From the collection of the noted pianist, teacher and collector Jacob Lateiner (1928-2010), with a note laid in from the distinguished music antiquarian Albi Rosenthal (1914-2004): "for Jacob - as a souvenir of his first (and frustrating) visit to Otto Haas - Albi, London, 12 May 1967." Wrappers slightly worn and soiled. . First Edition. Moldenhauer pp. 714-15. Webern completed the present work in August 1930. Dr. David Josef Bach (1874-1947), an important figure in Viennese cultural life in the first quarter of the 20th century, was a signficiant patron of the arts, an academic, and a writer who championed the dissemination of the arts to the masses. Many important musical and visual artists were indebted to his patronage and support, including Webern, Schoenberg (who wrote an atonal birthday canon of 21 measures for him in 1934) and Oskar Kokoscha (who executed a portrait of him). "As a boy, Bach was a close friend of the young Arnold Schoenberg, who later named him as one of the three friends (the other two were Oskar Adler and Alexander von Zemlinsky) who greatly influenced him in his youthful explorations of music and literature... An active socialist dedicated to making the arts accessible to the working classes, it was D.J. Bach who instituted the Arbeiter-Symphonie-Konzerte ('Workers' Symphony Concerts') in Vienna in 1905. His wide-ranging activities earned him the hostility of right-wing groups, who denounced his artistic programme as part of a 'Jewish conspiracy' to undermine traditional Austrian culture. Such accusations were all the more vehement because D.J. Bach was also one of the earliest members of the Vienna Psychoanalytical Association which met under the aegis of Sigmund Freud and whose members were mostly Jewish... Music was, and remained, his central focus, and it was he who founded the amateur Vienna Singverein ('Vienna Choral Society') in 1919. This organisation, together with the Arbeiter-Symphonie-Konzerte and the 'Workers' Music Conservatoire', flourished until all were disbanded upon the new fascist government's outlawing of the Social Democratic Party and imposition of an authoritarian constitution in 1934. Anton Webern was active as a conductor of all musical organisations, and developed a close and enduring friendship with D.J. Bach..." Wikipedia
