      [Bludenz], 1933. In einem eighd. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Geringe Gbrsp. - Schnabl (1904 - 1990), studierte zwischen 1922 und 1927 an der Akademie der Bildenden Künste in Wien u. a. bei K. Sterrer. Zuerst Mittelschulehrer in Bludenz, dann ab 1969 in Salzburg ansäßig. Befreundet mit Kubin und Fronius. Seine Federzeichnungen und Aquarelle verweben verschrobene Dorf- und Kleinstadtpoesie, soziales Mitgefühl und skurrilen Humor zu einer ganz eigenen Welt. (Zitat nach Salzburger Kulturlexikon, S. 442). - Frey, (1881 -1957), studierte in Heidelberg, Freiburg/Breisgau und München Jura und Philosophie, ohne seine Studien abzuschließen. Seit 1918 war er als freier Schriftsteller in München ansässig. Während des Ersten Weltkriegs diente er im selben Regiment wie Hitler, der ihm später eine Stelle als Feuilletonchef des \"Völkischen Beobachters\" anbot, was F. jedoch ablehnte. 1933 wurden seine Bücher verboten, er emigrierte zunächst nach Österreich, 1938 in die Schweiz, wo der Freund Thomas Manns lange Zeit unter ärmlichen Umständen als Rezensent lebte. Erst nach 1945 besserte sich seine Lage, nachdem einige seiner im Exil entstandenen Werke erschienen waren. F. schrieb Romane, Novellen, Märchen und Utopien. Als bizarr, skurril und phantastisch werden viele seiner Geschichten charakterisiert, die häufig mit parodistischen Elementen und hintergründigem Humor angereichert sind. Sein dokumentarisch-autobiographischer Roman Die Pflasterkästen (1929) zählt zu den bedeutenden Antikriegsromanen der Weimarer Republik. (DBE) - Hier ein nicht veröffentlichtes Projekt zu A. M.

        Fruit of Islam Uniform

      [Circa 1960s]. Complete dark blue uniform of a Fruit of Islam member including pants, jacket, and cap with "W.F.M." stitched on the jacket. Near fine with very slight fading on the shoulder patches and light wear at the collar. A 1960s-era uniform of a member of the Fruit of Islam, the paramilitary branch of the Nation of Islam. The all-male group was made up of the "fruit" of the larger "Nation" which was one of the original institutions in the community created before its founder, Wallace D. Fard, disappeared in 1933. They served as bodyguards for Elijah Mohammed until his death in 1975 when they were disbanded (they were later reconstituted by Louis Farrakhan in the 1980s). Seen as "brave fighters for Allah," the F.O.I.'s mission statement reads, "to teach civilization, and teach what they know to those who do not know." They are seen as "head of house: protection, provision, and maintenance of the Nation of Islam (all Original People). The F.O.I. are militant in the sense that our operations are done as a unit." According to their training manual: "The Fruit of Islam is the backbone of Islam, the militant part of Islam, the productive part of Islam, the men of Islam." They are trained to be "obedient, militant, humble, tolerant, courteous, honest, and dependable."An interesting item representing a branch of the African-American activist religious group. .

Die Kommandanten des Berner Regiments in kgl. französischem Dienst: ihre militärische Laufbahn. -- ?Im Jahre 1671 stellte der Gardehauptmann Johann Jakob von Erlach das erste Schweizer Linienregiment auf. Dieses Korps bestand aus 2400 Mann, war in zwölf Kompagnien eingeteilt und sollte zu seinem Obersten stets einen Bernburger haben [.]. [.] Alle Soldaten mussten Bürger oder Untertanen von Bern sein [.]. [.] Im Felde durften die verschiedenen Kompagnien so wenig wie möglich von einander getrennt werden [.]. Das Regiment durfte nie gegen eine protestantische Macht eingesetzt werden [.].? (etc.; P. de Vallière, Treue und Ehre, 2. Aufl. 1940, p. 347; dieser Zeitraum nicht bei Albert Maag). - ?König Ludwig XIV., dem viele ?freie?, d.h. nicht durch Kapitulationen gegründete Kompanien dienten, schuf 1671 permanente Schweizer Regimenter, die nun den Namen ihres Obersten trugen. Das 1672 aufgestellte Berner Regiment von Erlach war das erste von elf Linienregimentern, die bis zur Revolution dem französischen König dienten. Die Einführung ständiger Regimenter, die sich bald in ganz Europa verbreitete, erklärt sich aus dem [.] Wandel der Kriegsführung, die nun eine längere und gründlichere Ausbildung der Soldaten erforderte. Man verpflichtete die Söldner jetzt für drei oder vier Jahre, manchmal sogar für noch längere Zeit.? (Ph. Henri, Lemma Fremde Dienste, in: HLS). Nach dem Tod von J. J. v. Erlach 1694 übernahm Oberst Albert Manuel das Regiment, das nun seinen Namen trug; der Regimentsname Erlach steht somit nur für die Gründungszeit dieser Einheit (Pochon/Tavel p. 36); 1792 hiess das Regiment (von) Wattenwyl (HLS loc. cit.). - Johann Jakob von Erlach (Bern 1628-1694 Argenteuil bei Paris), ref., später kath., von Bern.

The second is Yoshida's embossed signature seal, seldom found on his prints. There is a note on the use of these two seals in Blakeney. See p.23, where he states: "A felicitous special employment of it is to be found on a number of his wide-margined prints ...where the seal [usually accompanied by another, or representation of the printer's BAREN] is blind-stamped into the margin of the paper." . There is also an English title printed in the lower left of the print with the Japanese colophon in the left margin. It reads: "Jizuri or Self-Printed, Showa 8 [1933], "From the Series of Four Gardens." * This is one of a series of the NIWA YON-DAI or FOUR GARDEN SUBJECTS.

        New Verse

      Drummond -1939, London 1933 - 34 issues in 32. Small 8vo. Stiff paper wrappers. Red wraparound band to Auden double issue (26-27), perforated subscription forms to many numbers. Staples rusted, closed tear at spine of Issue 1, age-toning consistent with vintage. A near fine set. First edition. A COMPLETE RUN OF THIS HIGHLY INFLUENTIAL PERIODICAL. Geoffrey Grigson was just twenty-seven when he founded the bi-monthly New Verse, which for most of the 1930s remained the only British literary publication devoted solely to poetry. Grigson insisted on high literary standards from his contributors, but once these were met anyone was allowed in; New Verse was important because it was the house journal of no one faction. One of the most important contributors was W.H. Auden: the early issues helped launch him, later ones defended him. (The Auden double issue in this set retains its rare wraparound band). The combative Grigson was happy to criticise those he published, seeing such interventions as a legitimate part of the conversation, but saved most of his ammunition for New Verse's critics: the Sitwells were savaged, and Laura Riding was (entirely fairly) dismissed as 'Queen-bore among all the poets'. The open-door policy of New Verse made it the works canteen of the 1930s poetry factory, with Surrealists rubbing shoulders with Mass Observationists and Objectivists, and Auden and MacNeice establishing themselves at the top table as the decade progressed. The Second World War ended publication, but New Verse's influence reached far beyond 1939. A complete set, in near fine condition, of this landmark publication.

        The Song of Songs (Original Film Program)

      Los Angeles: Paramount Pictures, 1933. Original film program for the 1933 film. With a striking image of Dietrich on the front wrapper, and much detail throughout regarding the production. Based on the novel by Hermann Suermann and the play by Edward Sheldon, about a country orphan who goes to Berlin to live with her aunt and who becomes the model for a handsome sculptor. Director Robert Mamoulian made the film simply and without artifice, a great departure from Dietrich's work with her Svengali, Josef von Sternberg. Filmed and released prior to the stringent Production Code, the filmmakers were allowed to display the full nude statue of Dietrich on the program's cover, for which she reportedly posed. An interesting example of Hollywood's attempts to recreate on US soil the Berlin that Marlene Dietrich came from, onscreen a beautiful place, in reality a city that ultimately rejected her. In addition to the photos and biographical information, the program contains a detailed and interesting essay to this effect, "Again a Gay and Friendly Berlin," with several photographs of cameras, Mamoulian, and Dietrich on the set. Two-color wrappers, 16 pages, saddle-stitched. Near Fine.
