         Die Universität Heidelberg im Nationalsozialismus [Gebundene Ausgabe] Wolfgang Uwe Eckart (Herausgeber), Volker Sellin (Herausgeber), Eike Wolgast (Herausgeber) Wie hat sich die nationalsozialistische

      Wie hat sich die nationalsozialistische Herrschaft auf die Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg ausgewirkt? In dem vorliegenden Band berichten 36 Autoren erstmals umfassend über sämtliche an der Universität vertretenen Disziplinen in der Zeit von 1933 bis 1945. Untersucht werden sowohl die Entwicklungen in der Gesamtuniversität (Gleichschaltung, Durchsetzung des Führerprinzips, Aufhebung der Autonomie, Vertreibung von Dozenten, gelenkte Berufungspolitik, Einflussnahmen der Partei und ihrer Gliederungen, Disziplinierung der Studierenden) als auch die Entwicklung von Forschung und Lehre sowie die personellen Veränderungen, die räumliche Unterbringung und die materielle Ausstattung in allen Fächern und Instituten. Wie sich zeigt, hat es ganz unterschiedliche Formen der Reaktion auf das Regime gegeben. Das Spektrum reicht von verbrecherischer Forschung bis zu unspektakulärer Anpassung und in einigen Fällen kühler Distanzierung. Die Darstellung der einzelnen Disziplinen setzt jeweils bei der Situation am Ende der Weimarer Republik ein und endet mit dem Blick auf Umbruch und Neubeginn nach dem Untergang des Dritten Reiches. Das Werk besitzt über die Geschichte der Universität Heidelberg hinaus exemplarische Bedeutung für die Geschichte von Universität und Wissenschaft im Nationalsozialismus generell.

         Les Amours Pastorales de Daphnis et Chloe

      1933 - Translated by J. Amyot, edited and corrected by Paul-Louis Courier. 26 illustrations drawn and cut on wood by Gwendolen Raverat. Initials hand-drawn in blue by Graily Hewitt and assistants, printed in Ptolemy type with marginal notes in red. One of 290 copies. 4to., original vellum-backed green paper covered boards with stamp designed by Raverat in gilt on upper cover, in original patterned paper covered slipcase, uncut. Chelsea, The Ashendene Press. Hornby's second attempt at this work, the first being printed on Japanese vellum. Due to the ink's very slow drying on the paper, the sheets were packed before they were ready, leading to very bad off-set on most of them. Hornby declared that he destroyed all except 10 copies of this edition (we have since discovered the eleventh survivor). At the second attempt he abandoned the Japanese paper in favour of the easier Batchelor paper used here.An extremely good copy, with only a tiny chip to the paper of the lower cover, of a handsomely illustrated Ashendene. Raverat's illustrations were, as Colin Franklin points out, ?the only worthwhile original illustrations in an Ashendene book? This was a fitting end to the Press as this was the last book, other than the bibliography, to be printed there. Franklin, ?The Ashendene Press?, pp. 242-3.

         Blast. A Magazine of Proletarian Short Stories. Vol 1, nos. 1-2

      Blast, New York 1933 - First two issues of this important but exceedingly uncommon radical literary quarterly, which appeared for only five issues between September 1933 and November 1934. From a literary standpoint the journal was most noteworthy for containing "some of the best of William Carlos Williams' stories" (Hoffman), but it was also a forum for some of the most talented of the proletarian writers of the Thirties including Benjamin Appel, Joseph Vogel, Ilya Ehrenbourg, Alfred Morang, Bruno Fischer and others. Williams's contributions to these two issues are "Jean Beicke" (no. 1) and "The Use of Force" (no. 2). HOFFMAN (Little Magazine in America) p.308. Quarto. Staple-bound journal. Printed card wrappers; each issue 32pp. No. 1 with some uneven soiling to wrapper edges, minor chips to extremities; no. 2 with red pencil markings to front cover and inside rear cover, else fresh, well-preserved copies, Very Good or better. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
