        Laßt uns Denkmäler bauen. Original-Tuschezeichnung und Vorzeichnung. (Der bekannte Soldat - Salome).

      Ohne Ortsangabe, o. J. (wohl 1932).. 2 Blätter mit Original-Zeichnungen (eine koloriert, eine schwarzweiße Tinte). Format ca. 37,5x25 cm.. Veröffentlicht im Simplicissimus, Stuttgart 29.Mai 1932, 27. Jahrgang Nummer 9, Seite 107 (siehe Online-Dokumentation zum Simplicissimus www.simplicissimus.info). Mit Sammlerstempel Ad. Deutelmoser, auf der Rückseite der Tuschezeichnung. Rest eines Klebers am oberen Rand der Tuschezeichnung, beide Blätter etwas gebräunt, die Tuschezeichnung verso lichtrandig, auf Whatman Büttenpapier, beide mit leichteren Knickspuren. - Karl Maximilian Arnold (geb. am 1. April 1883 in Neustadt bei Coburg - gest. am 29. November 1953 in München), Zeichner des Simplicissimus, hatte 1932 schon vorhergesehen wie es mit der Hitlerbande weitergehen würde und zog den Vergleich zu Salome's Einforderung des Kopfes Johannes des Täufers. Die Zeichnung zeigt die nackte Salome mit dem Kopf Hitlers, die den von einem SA-Mann auf einem Tablett servierten Kopf (eines dem damalig optischen antisemitischen Stereotypen eines Juden) streichelt. Rechts im Vordergrund Hitler als trommelnde Puppe, links Hitlers Konterfei auf einer Säule (Der bekannte Soldat) mit 2 kleinwüchsigen Betrachtern. - "Als die Nationalsozialisten 1933 wider Erwarten den Simplicissimus, trotz dessen scharfer Kritik an Hitler in den Jahren zuvor, nicht verboten, sondern fortführten, konnte auch Arnold weiter dort publizieren. Die Mitarbeiter des Simpl hatten sich 1933 förmlich unterworfen. Er selbst räumte ein, dass er zum Widerständler nicht eigne, und lavierte sich durch" (Quelle Wikipedia). Zum Thema Arnold, Simplicissimus und die Nazis erschien in der FAZ ein interessanter Artikel von Andreas Rossmann mit dem Titel: Wie kommt Hitlers Kopf auf die nackte Frau? (www.faz.net/aktuell/feuilleton/kunst/karikaturist-karl-arnold-wie-kommt-hitlers-kopf-auf-die-nackte-frau-11024830-p2.html). - Nicht signiert. Nach dem Eignerstempel Ad. Deutelmoser könnte diese Tuschemalerei im Restaurant Osteria Bavaria gehangen haben, ob Ad. Deutelmoser ein Verwandter vom Besitzer Josef Deutelmoser war, können wir nicht nachweisen. In der Linienführung und in einigen Details unterscheidet sich unsere Zeichnung in einigen Details vom Original.

        The ÒPop-upÓ Pinocchio with Òpop-upÓ Illustrations in color by Harold Lentz

      New York: Blue Ribbon Books, Inc., [1932]. 8vo, 96 pp. 4 color double-page pop-up illustrations, in perfect working order, and many line drawings throughout the text, color illustrated endpapers. Original pictorial boards, text printed on heavy stock, a brilliant copy in virtually perfect condition in the original dust-jacket. First edition of this uncommon pop-up book very rarely found in this condition. Each story is illustrated with a priceless pop-up in perfect working condition. Harer, ?'Merry Company: Pop ups, Movables, & Toy Books?", notes: The Pop-up Pinocchio may have been the finest American pop-up to come from Blue Ribbon Press, certainly finer than any of the British Bookanos... it had superior graphics, it was composed of high quality materials and the design and color printing were exemplary... Pinocchio topped the bestseller lists in 1932?". Harer doesnÕt mention the ?'Cinderella?" from the same publisher which is as good if not better than Pinocchio.

        The Silver Horn and Other Sporting Tales of John Weatherford

      New York: The Derrydale Press, 1932. First Edition, one of 950 copies. With 6 drawings by J. Alden Twachtman. WITH FINE FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF A RACE OVER TIMBER, SIGNED BY F.R. CROSS. 1 vols. 8vo. Original red boards, gilt spine. THE ONLY COPY WE HAVE EVER SEEN WITH ALL EDGES GILT. This must be a unique copy, but done by the original edition binders because the pastedown and endpapers are the same as the regular edition. Bookplate. Laid into quarter crimson morocco slipcase and chemise. CROSS, F.R. CROSS, F.R. First Edition, one of 950 copies. With 6 drawings by J. Alden Twachtman. WITH FINE FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF A RACE OVER TIMBER, SIGNED BY F.R. CROSS. 1 vols. 8vo. WITH SIGNED FORE-EDGE PAINTING UNDER GILT EDGES. One of the most successful Derrydale titles, and, though a collection of stories, a leading candidate for The Great American Sporting Novel. We know of no other Derrydale book with fore-edge painting; it was possibly done at the behest of Eugene V. Connett, III, the proprietor of the Press, perhaps as a gift. The painting appears to illustrate the climatic racing scene from the story "Enid Ashley's Knight Errant", which appears in the book. UNIQUE.

        Portrait of Babe Ruth

      [New York?], 1932. Pencil, pen and ink on artist's board, signed lower right by the artist ("Slanuzto"?). 15-3/4 x 17-1/2 inches (Irregular). Framed. Pencil, pen and ink on artist's board, signed lower right by the artist ("Slanuzto"?). 15-3/4 x 17-1/2 inches (Irregular). The cartoon depicting the head of Babe Ruth descending from a cloud, with ticker-tape machine spitting out Ruth's yearly batting averages, beside a "Gus Hemmingway Fan" reading the May 19th quotations at lower right. Beside his portrait is the ink inscription: "To my Pal Hal Stevens Sincerely Babe Ruth." Caterer Harry M. Stevens, born in Derby, England in 1855, emigrated to the United States in the 1880s, and introduced the hot dog at a baseball game at the Polo Grounds in 1907. Clearly, his relationship with Babe Ruth - a legendary lover of hot dogs - was close. After a long and successful career as a concessionaire, Stevens died in 1934, and in 1996, 166 items of his baseball memorabilia were auctioned off in New York. Among these was a photograph of Babe Ruth, estranged from his parents from childhood, hitting his 60th home run. The photo was inscribed: "To my second dad Harry M Stevens from Babe Ruth, December 25th 1927." A magnificent - and quintessentially American - association item.

        The Adelphi Quartos

      London: Wishart & Co.,, 1932. [The Appreciation of Architecture; Scrutiny of Cinema; Theatre Prospect.] 3 volumes, quarto. Original quarter cloth over patterned paper or cloth boards with Curwen designs by Paul Nash, spines gilt. With the original printed glassine dust jackets. Illustrated throughout by drawing and half tone photographic reproductions. Some very minor spotting to the occasional page but lovely copies each in the rare printed tissue dust jacket. Jackets nibbled a bit at the edges with the odd tear and the odd chip. No loss of text no serious wear at all. An exceptional set. First editions. These were intended to be the first in a series of more or less radical studies published by the extraordinary Wishart. However, three was the whole extent of the noble endeavour. Each one of these titles is scarce in dust jacket; to find a complete set is uncommon indeed.
