        Even God Failed: A Story Of Revenge (Unpublished Original Manuscript Novel 1932)

      1932 - An unpublished novel (original typed manuscript) written in 1932. The manuscript contains 308 single-sided typed sheets each measuring 8-1/2" by 11" (the first page contains two quotes - one from Edward Young and one from John Milton; dedication page "To My Mother Who, in her life, knew old 'Judge Fairchild"; Introduction "Purely Personal" typed in "New York City, 1932"; and Chapters 1 through 21 comprising 305 double-spaced typewritten pages). From the author's Introduction ("Purely Personal"): "No - this is not a religious story as you might imagine. It is only a yarn about poor, sensitive moderns. The characters, who stalk through these pages, are composite creations of those souls drawn out from the memories of crowded hours. All are capable of having existed and, it is not improbable, that they would have done and said similar things if they had all been caught in such a whirlpool of human emotions." Throughout the pages are the author's typographical corrections and the occasional textual revision written in pen. The manuscript contains two hole punches to the upper edges, not affecting the text, and two hole punches to the left edge area where the manuscript is bound in a front and rear removable sturdy black paper binder with metal strips. To the front cover is the title and author sticker. Condition: the pages are understandably, but lightly, age-yellowed but are otherwise in excellent condition. The exterior black binding is worn (rear corner chip; 6" closed tear to the front cover; the title and author sticker to the front cover shows periodic small edge chips). According to the Internet Movie Database, Colby Harriman was the (uncredited) Director of Presentation of the 1925 movie classic "The Lost World." [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Lersch").

      Bodendorf an der Ahr, 7. VII. 1932. - 1¼ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. Mit einer Beilage (s. u.). An den Schriftsteller und Regisseur Hanns Maria Braun (1810-187): "Werter Kollege, darin haben Sie nicht Unrecht, daß ich Briefe gern beantworte, trotzdem es eine komische Sache ist: Wenn ein Nachbar kommt und sagt: Grab mir nach Feierabend ein Stück Feld um oder hilf mir mein Fahrrad flicken - so tu ich es sehr gern, denn es ist - gegen die Tagesarbeit eine schöne Ablenkung. Kommt aber ein Nachbar zu einem Nachbarn, der den ganzen Tag gegraben oder Fahrrad geflickt hat, der sagt, na, hast du keinen Brief zu schreiben oder so was? Das wär eine geistige Ergänzung zur Tagesarbeit. Also wenn schon schreiben, dann muß es Sinn haben [.]". - Heinrich Lersch war 1914 mit seinem Gedicht "Soldatenabschied" bekannt geworden, "in dem er der Kriegsbegeisterung der Arbeiter Ausdruck verlieh. Nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg kam Lersch in Kontakt mit dem Bund der Werkleute auf Haus Nyland, nahm jedoch eine ablehnende Haltung gegenüber dem Klassenkampf ein und schilderte u. a. in seinem autobiographischen Roman ‚Hammerschläge' (1930) die Lebensbedingungen der Proletarier, die Erfüllung in ihrer Arbeit finden. Er schloß sich den Nationalsozialisten an, die ihn 1933 in die Deutsche Akademie der Dichtung aufnahmen und seinem Werk zu großer Popularität verhalfen" (DBE). 1933 neben 87 anderen Schriftstellern ein Treuegelöbnis für Hitler unterzeichnend, unterstützte er folgerichtig im Jahr darauf einen "Aufruf der Kulturschaffenden" anläßlich der Volksbefragung zur Vereinigung des Amtes des Reichskanzlers und Reichspräsidenten in der Person von Adolf Hitler; 1935 erhielt Lersch den Rheinischen Literaturpreis. - Hanns Maria Braun, häufig unter dem Ps. Johann Gottlieb Dietrich publizierend, war Lektor im Heitz Verlag und Herausgeber der "Kulturpolitischen Rundschau", danach Schriftleiter beim "Völkischen Beobachter" und zuletzt Filmregisseur. Vgl. Kosch I, 911. - Die zwei letzten Zeilen der Recto-Seite von Bl. 1 sowie die oberen Zeilen auf Bl. 2 recto alt ausgeschnitten und mit Tesafilmstreifen erneut eingefügt; beiliegend ein Kuvertausschnitt mit e. Adresse und Absenderstempel.

      München, 22. XII. 1932. - 2¼ SS. auf 2 Bll. Gr.-4to. Mit ms. adr. Kuvert. An den Dirigenten Hans Knappertsbusch: "[.] Heute in der Hauptprobe zum 'Christelflein', die bis dahin ohne die geringste Störung verlief, und von mir nur mit sehr wenig Unterbrechungen geleitet wurde, sah ich vor einem wichtigen Geigeneinsatz, daß verschiedene Herren von der ersten Geige das Instrument nicht spielbereit hatten und auf die Bühne sahen, und rief, zu den ersten Violinen gewendet, das Wort: "Geigen", damit der Einsatz präzis kommen solle. Daraufhin rief mir der erste Konzertmeister König laut zu, ich solle das anders sagen, und ich sei gereizt. Bei der sich nun ergebenden Kontroverse blieb Herr König bei seiner Behauptung, fügte hinzu, ich sei bissig, wiederholte dies mehrmals, als ich mir das verbat, bis ich die Kontroverse damit abschloss, dass ich seine Behauptung als unverschämt zurückwies und weiter probierte. Ich brauche wohl nicht extra zu versichern, dass von einer Gereiztheit oder gar Bissigkeit bei mir nicht entfernt die Rede sein konnte, dass vielmehr die Behauptung des Herrn König vollständig aus der Luft gegriffen war. Ich bin begierig, durch welchen Beweis jene Behauptung erhärtet werden kann. Vielmehr scheint mir die Sache so, dass gegen mich im Staatsorchester eine renitente Stimmung herrscht, die sich weiter nicht erklären lässt als höchstens dadurch, dass ich überhaupt während der Proben gelegentlich einen musikalischen Wunsch äussere. Das gilt den Herren anscheinend schon als Beleidigung. Und nun drehen Sie den Spieß um und behaupten, es liege an meinem 'Ton', wenn sie sachlich nichts dagegen sagen können. Hierbei nun wieder stützen sie sich auf eine längst gegen mich in Schwung gebrachte Mär, die ich nun endlich geradewegs als eine boshafte Verläumdung [!] bezeichnen muss, nämlich dass mit mir persönlich schwer umzugehen, ich schwer zu befriedigen, ständig gereizt, und was dergleichen mehr ist, sei [.]". - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr.

An uncommon book seldom found in dust jacket. (#103566). First edition, first binding. The fifth and final novel published during Lindsay's lifetime. Though boring, the work has its memorable pages, even chapters according to Colin Wilson who spent two years getting through it. E. H. Visiak stated that he initially believed that the book was almost unreadable, but upon rereading it -- slowly -- he found it fascinating and was so impressed that he wrote a fifty page critique of the novel. Brian Stableford says the novel is "marvelously atmospheric and admirably conscientious in its design of a hypothetical mythology and the metaphysics to go with it." E. F. Bleiler considers DEVIL'S TOR to be Lindsay's "magnum opus." Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 3-218. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1022. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 140.

        Dielma, with ALS and original manuscript poem laid in

      Duckworth, London 1932 - London: Duckworth, 1932. First edition, in jacket. ALS by the author, with an original poem to the recipient, laid in [see story, below]. Octavo, 88 pp. Bright blue cloth, gilt spine lettering. Spartan cream jacket (now toned). Near fine; paste foxing at endpapers, no othernotable flaws. Jacket is better than good, age-toned as noted and with a few smallish chips. See scans. This is the earlier Harry Clifton, namesake of the current Irish poet by that name. This one (the earlier Harry Clifton) became the inspiration for W.B. Yeats' famous 1938 poem, "Lapis Lazuli (For Harry Clifton)" after he (Clifton) gave Yeats a Lapis Lazuli carving. Clifton was particularly adroit at poems honoring - and marveling at - women, a talent to which the contents of "Dielma" will attest. There's more. Laid in is a letter from Clifton, on stationery of the Hotel St. Francis in San Francisco, to a Miss Patricia T___, with an original manuscript poem to her at its end. The letter begins: "Dear Patricia - I am sending you a poem, of you, to you. Of course, do not imagine that I know whom you are like; you may resemble Aphrohodite of the Golden Girdle, or Queen Neferte (sic) really." he goes on to say, among other things, that he's writing to England to have a copy of Lord Dunsany's "The Queen of Elfland's Daughter" (sic; actual title was "The King of Elfland's Daughter") sent to her. The Poem is entitled, "To Patricia T___", and goes on to compare her, for her natural affinity for riding, golf, and tennis, to the Goddess Diana: "I imagined muscles moulding to running grace." While there is no evidence here to so indicate, it's possible the copy of Dielma in which the letter and poem are laid was Patricia's, which, if the case, would make this a presentation copy as well. Perhaps an association copy, to boot; Patricia T's surname is that of a noted San Francisco family, and since the letter was written on Hotel St. Francis stationery in that city, she may have been a member of that clan. No direct evidence here to establish that conclusively, however. The letter is dated "All Souls Day, 1932", which would have been November 2nd or November 3rd of that year. l-44n [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        De la psychose paranoïaque dans ses rapports avec la personnalité

      Paris: Librairie E. Le François,, 1932. Octavo (235 × 156 mm). Modern brown quarter morocco by Lobstein-Laurenchet, marbled boards, raised bands, spine gilt-lettered direct, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, printed wrappers bound in. Stain to foot of original front wrapper also very slightly affecting the extreme lower margin of the first few leaves, else an excellent copy. First edition of Lacan's first published work. Lacan's ground-breaking thesis, particularly its central narrative of the story of the woman he named Aimée, immediately attracted the attention of the Surrealists. "To this thesis," Dali wrote in 1933, "we are indebted for giving us, for the first time, a global and homogeneous idea of the [paranoid] phenomenon, beyond any of the abject notions in which psychiatry at present is mired." "The young psychiatrist was not satisfied with effecting a brilliant critical synthesis among several trends of French thought; he also proposed a writing of madness which was as innovative at the time as that of Breton or Bataille. Instead of a traditional case history, we find in the 1932 thesis a novel 150 pages in length, in the style of Flaubert, that is, in a literary language irreducible to the wooden prose of psychiatric discourse. Lacan recounts his heroine's adventures with the pen of an authentic writer, displacing on the character of Aimée the misfortunes of a contemporary Emma Bovary. That in fact is the greatest originality of this innovative book" (Élisabeth Roudinesco, Jacques Lacan & Co: a history of psychoanalysis in France, 1925-1985, University of Chicago Press, 1990, p. 112).

        King Kong.

      NY. Grosset & Dunlap. (1932.) - First Novelized Edition by Delos W. Lovelace. With illustrated endpapers with scenes from the Radio Picture. The complete novel with scenes from the movie on the endpapers. VG+ in woven lime green cloth stamped brightly in black on the front boards and the spine. Internally in fine condition: tight, clean fresh paper, no names, superb pages, and crisply printed photos from the classic motion picture. The spine is completely clean, bright, and crisp. A gorgeous copy except for the mottling to the boards. Unfortunately, the boards have been exposed to mold, and there are extensive patches on the front and rear boards of the whitish brown mold which has leeched the lime green color out of the cloth. About the bottom third of the front boards and half of the rear boards have been affected by the microbes. Perhaps this copy would be best rebound in leather, as the interior is virtually fine.

Kubismus war der Künstler als Bühnenbildner tätig. Grosse Wertschätzung erhielt er vor allem als Plakatgestalter. Die vorliegenden Arbeiten dokumentieren die Industrialisierung Zürichs.

In den grafischen Blättern mit gesellschaftskritischen Themen nähert er sich inhaltlich wie stilistisch George Grosz und Otto Dix an. Zusammen mit Fritz Pauli, Otto Morach, Hermann Huber und Ignaz Epper gehört Baumberger zu den wichtigsten Vertretern des Expressionismus in der Schweiz" (SIKART).
