        Federzeichnungen zu "Das abenteuerliche Dasein". Konvolut aus neunundzwanzig Federzeichnungen, davon eine Bleistiftzeichnung, zum größtenteils mit Seitenangabe bzw. Titelei, alle eighd. monogrammiert. [ca. 22 x 30 cm]

      [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. Frey's Roman.

The diameter of the face of the clock, imprinted â??Made in U.S.A. / United / Electric / United Electric Clock Corp. N.Y.,â? is 4.25â?.

It features the new President steering the Ship of State.

        Collection of Sepia-Toned Photographs of Prohibition-Era Saloons

      1920s to 1933. This set of photographs capture the architecture, the atmosphere, and the male culture that suffused saloons pre-prohibition and continued to flourish during the twenties and early thirties, as documented here. Since the photos are not numerous, they by no means offer an ambitious survey of bar culture of the time. The photos do provide the kind of off-kilter fascination that might be associated with the work of an artistic photographer, although one can not say that these were the work of such a photographer. It is likely that the photographs were done by a professional, however, and also one that was intent on documenting this subject matter. As with much documentary photo-work, what exactly is being said most definitely ambiguous and open to interpretation. wo of the most interesting photos are of a Hot Springs, Arkansas rustic saloon. It is in a log cabin structure and almost looks as if it is outdoors, but given that taxidermy mounted on the wall, among other details, one can assume it was in fact an interior. The photo is dated 1929, and so the saloon amounts to a speakeasy. A group of middle aged men, mostly in business attire and looking very much like Rotarians, have bottles and wine glasses in hand as they look with furtive glee into the camera. In the center is a younger man in knickers balancing a small bottle on his white shirt, and an older bartender is standing behind him, on the other side of the bar. Among the many arresting facets of the scene are the makeshift signs that are nailed to the wall advertising the bar's various concoctions. The photo has simultaneously an immediacy and a remoteness that can be said to characterize many of the photos in this collection. Another smaller picture shows a similar bar from Arkansas, this one at least semi-open air, in which two customers are aiming rifles at the bartender in a mock hold-up. Most of the other photos are definitely of city bars, most if not all, of bars in New York. Some of these have men posing, while others are of just the room or architectural details. The architectural photos have a haunted quality, although this is something they have obtained with the passing of many decades. Inevitably there are man-oriented design elements such as taxidermy. Some might find these effects kitsch, but restauranteurs and patrons would love such a space today and would change little, if anything. The marble, the dark woodwork, the brass trim, and chandeliers produce an intoxicating atmosphere as potent as whatever liquor was served. One of the spaces has stunning stylized allegorical frescos that one wonders if they survived. One shot is of a New York tavern exterior. Since there is a sign announcing the place is a tavern, one has to think that the establishment was operating more or less openly, as might have been occurring at the tail end of Prohibition. A framed photo, probably of this very same bar, is dated March 16, 1933, and that was days before the first loosening of Prohibition statutorily -- the constitutional amendment was officially repealed at the end of that year. The bar is Billy Cook's, and a few of the photos bear that name. There is one photo of a grocery, not a bar, and it looks like an Italian grocery, with an address on Albert Street, which to this day is an Italian neighborhood in the Bronx. The photographs are of varying sizes, ranging from 21 by 16 cm to 36 by 28 cm, oblong. At least one photo pre-dates Prohibition -- most, if not all of the others, are from the Prohibition era. Some chips, creases and wear to the photos.

      Librairie Rene Colas, Paris 1933 - Two volumes (COMPLETE) bound in one. [viii] pp., 1412 cols., colonne 1412 (numeraz. continuata), 70 pp. (Table methodique) + iv pp. (Index to the Table). Bouond for Martin Breslauer in contemporary German maroon half calf over maroon cloth, all original wrappers bound in (spine sunned and faded to chestnut brown), internally FINE. Beautiful Copy of the First Edition, limited to 1000 numbered copies (this one being No. 849). The still-indispensable, virtually comprehensive repertoire for the understanding and study of the Costume from antiquity to the 20th-century, including civil, military, and religious costume, clothing and fashion. While the work is principally European in scope, there is significant coverage given to other parts of the world. Approximately 3,121 work are meticulously described, with full collations and plate counts. The work is arranged alphabetically according to author (or if anonymous by title). So extensive is the work that there is even an Index to the Index (sic!). That this massive work was created by the heroic efforts of a single individual is amazing. -- Our copy was bound for Martin Breslauer, of Berlin, who was at that time justly considered to one of the greatest European booksellers. Breslauer was ruined by Nazi tax-collectors and was forced to flee with his family to London, where as the result of a Nazi bombing campaign he died of shock. -- REFERENCE: Besterman, p. 1505.

        Unsere Führer im Lichte der Rassenfrage und Charakterologie. Eine rassenmäßige und charakterbiologische Beurteilung von Männern des Dritten Reiches. Mit polizeilicher und parteiamtlicher NSDAP-Genehmigung

      Leipzig Verlag der Literaturwerke "Minerva" R.Max Lipold, 1933.. . Vollständige Ausgabe im original Verlagseinband (blaues Ganzleinen GLn / OLn / Ln im Format 14 x 22 cm) mit dekoriertem Deckeltitel in Goldprägung, Text: Fraktur. 169 Seiten, mit vielen ganzseitigen Fotoabbildungen auf Kunstdruckpapier (Porträt-Aufnahmen von führenden Nationalsozialisten) sowie einem Foto des Verfassers auf Seite 6. Druck: Hansa-Buchdruckerei Bormann & Co / Leipzig. - Das Buch ist gewidmet "aus tiefer Geistverbundenheit allen schaffenden germanischen Artschwestern und Artbrüdern, die deutsch leben und streben". - Aus dem Vorwort: "Menschenkenntnis ist Macht. Keineswegs fußt die vorliegende Arbeit auf neuen wissenschaftlichen Grundsätzen. Seit dem 17.Jahrhundert bereits finden sich immer wieder Anläufe, Rassenkunde und Menschenkenntnis zu staatlich anerkannten Wissenschaften erheben. Aber die Gegner in Staatsstellen und an Schulen und Universitäten haben es verstanden, das Urwissen unserer Ahnen bis zu dieser Zeit zu unterdrücken. Von den Vorkämpfern für dieses Wissen seien erwähnt: Lavater, Dr.Gall, Dr.Spürzheimer, Prof.Combe, Carus, Hutter, Gerling und Peters. Diese deckt bereits die kühle Erde. Unter uns Lebenden weilen: Lanz von Liebensfels, Ißberner-Haldane, Georg Richter und Burger-Villingen. Lanz von Liebensfels gebührt ein besonderer Ruhmeskranz. Trotz stärkster Knebelung und erbitterter Verfolgung hat er sich voller Idealismus für die Rassenkunde eingesetzt und sie weithin verbreitet. Ißberner-Haldane und Georg Richter kämpfen heldenmütig für den Rassengedanken und lassen sich selbst durch den Verlust von Freundinnen und Freunden nicht beirren. Beide schufen und finanzierten völlig unabhängig voneinander je eine Rassenschule . . . Hinsichtlich der Literatur verweise ich auf die Angaben in meinem Werk "Die urewige Weisheitssprache der Menschenformen". Heil Deutschland! Der Verfasser. Bärenstein (Bez. Dresden), am 20. April 1933". - Aus der Einleitung: "Alle äußeren Formen, gleichviel ob Kopf, Hals, Hand, Gang, Sprache, Gebärde, Ausdruck, Schrift, entsprechen den inneren Kräfte des Menschen. Damit ist die Möglichkeit gegeben, an den Rassenmerkmalen die unterschiedlichen seelischen Anlagen zu erkennen. Rasse ist niemals mit Taufe oder Änderung der Nationalität zu verwischen. Sie besteht vielmehr immer weiter, weil die Rasse durch das unveränderte Blut bestimmt wird. An ihrer Hautfarbe kann man die vier Grund- und Hauptrassen erkennen. Weiße Hautfarbe: arisch-germanische Rasse, braune Hautfarbe: Mediterrane, gelbe Hautfarbe: Mongolen, schwarze Hautfarbe: afrikanische Stämme. Der Jude ist keine bestimmte reine Rasse, sondern eine Mischrasse aus allen vier Grundrassen unter deren Unterarten. Daraus erklärt sich sein unberechenbares, internationales Heimatgefühl. Seine Heimat ist jeweilig dort, wo ein gutes Auskommen findet. Darin unterscheidet er sich grundlegend von den germanischen Völkern, denn diese halten ihrer Heimat die unbedingte Treue. Das gleiche gilt für die schwarzen Völker und auch für die Mongolen. Wenn der Jude eine Rassengemeinschaft eingeht, so tut er das nur aus Not und Berechnung. Selten aber ist diese Gemeinschaft von langer Dauer. Denn infolge seines egoistischen und händlerischen Wesens macht er sich bei jedem Wirtsvolk bald dermaßen unbeliebt, daß er wieder vertrieben wird. Darum muss auch für das deutsche Volk aus Liebe zu seiner Rassenreinheit Rassenscheidung gefordert werden. Jede Rassenmischung ist Sünde!... Seit unserer Volkskanzler die Zügel in die Hand genommen hat, ist gottlob unter dem verjudeten medizinischen Berufsstand aufgeräumt worden. Mit einemal geht von dort eine Welle des Verständnisses aus. Denn die unterdrückten und verführten germanischen Helden unter den Medizinern können sich nun befreit zum Volksganzen erheben . . . Gott, der allergnädigster Vater, ließ die Wahrheit siegen. Es kamen Männer an die Regierung, die ohne Furcht Menschenkenntnis und Rassenkunde fördern, ja sogar verlangen. Unser Volkskanzler, Adolf Hitler, ist Vertreter dieser hohen Wissenschaft. Machthaber und Führer des Dritten Reiches gaben mir schon vor ihrer Regierungsübernahme die Versicherung, daß unbedingt in Schule und Staat eine Neugestaltung zu Gunsten der Charakterologie und Rassenkunde geschehen werde... In den letztvergangenen Wochen der nationalen Revolution sprach ich bei der Reichsregierung und an den Länderregierungen vor und verhandelte persönlich mit den obersten Führern. Keiner von ihnen scheute sich, mir sein Bild auszuhändigen, damit ich es öffentlich im Lichte der Menschenkenntnis und Rassenkunde besprechen könne, was im vorliegenden Werk geschehen soll... Zum besseren Verständnis gebe ich am Schluss vier Studientafeln bei, damit jeder selbst die verschiedenen Anlagen unserer Führer nachprüfen kann. Ich weise nochmals darauf hin, daß ich nur solche Eigenschaften herausgreife, die uns als geführte Volksschichten interessieren. Mit Gottes Segen für Germaniens Aufstieg und Reinheit in und um uns!". - Folgende Persönlichkeiten werden anhand ihrer Porträts ausführlich beschrieben: Adolf Hitler (5 Bilder, davon eines den Führer als Kleinkind zeigend, sowie ein Bild der Führereltern); Reichspropagandaminister Dr.Josef Goebbels (2 Bilder); Reichstagspräsident, Reichsminister für Luftfahrt und Preußischer Ministerpräsident Hermann Göring (3 Bilder); Reichsminister des Inneren Dr.Wilhelm Frick (ein Bild); Reichskommissar für die Gleichschaltung der Justiz in den Ländern und Bayerischer Justizminister Dr.Hans Frank II (ein Bild); Preußischer Justizminister Hanns Kerrl (ein Bild); Preußischer Kultusminister Bernhard (ein Bild); Chef des außenpolitischen Amtes der NSDAP Reichsleiter Alfred Rosenberg (ein Bild); Leiter der Hauptabteilung IV (Staatswirtschaft) der NSDAP Gottfried Feder (ein Bild); Oberpräsident der Provinz Brandenburg Wilhelm Kube (ein Bild); Polizeipräsident von Breslau Edmund Heines (ein Bild); Polizeipräsident von Hannover Viktor Lutze (ein Bild); Präsident des Deutschen Landwirtschaftsrates Walter Darre (ein Bild); Geschäftsführender Präsident des Reichslandbundes Wilhelm Meinberg (ein Bild); Reichsstatthalter für Bayern Franz Ritter von Epp (ein Bild); Bayerischer Kultusminister Hans Schemm (ein Bild); Gauleiter der NSDAP, Gau Mittelfranken Julius Streicher (ein Bild); Reichsstatthalter für Sachsen Martin Mutschmann (ein Bild); Sächsischer Ministerpräsident Manfred von Killinger (2 Bilder); Gruppenführer der SA in Sachsen Georg von Detten (ein Bild); Polizeipräsident von Dresden Walter Hille (ein Bild); Beigeordneter beim sächsischen Volksbildungsministerium Arthur Goepfert (zwei Bilder); Reichsführer der NSDAP Rudolf Hess (ein Bild); Präsident des Preußischen Staatsrates und Führer der deutschen Arbeitsfront Dr. Dr.Robert Ley (ein Bild); Reichsjugendführer Baldur von Schirach (ein Bild); Oberpräsident der Provinz Schlesien Helmuth Brückner (ein Bild); Horst Wessel (ein Bild): "Gesamt Ausdruck: wir haben hier einen empfindungsmäßigen, idealistischen Kämpfer vor uns. Am stärksten ist sein Oberhaupt entwickelt, was für schöpferisches logisches Denken, Alliebe und tiefes Erleben, verbunden mit Vielseitigkeit spricht; frei und offen wie sein Auge ist auch seine Dichtung. Die markante, nach außen gebogene Nase deutet eine gute klare, empfindungsreiche Darstellungskraft an. Hierfür ist der Mund das Parallelzeichen. Daß die Oberlippe über die Unterlippe tritt, ist ein Zeichen für die Herrschaft des Geistigen das Materielle. In leiblichem Sinne konnte er seine Ziele nicht voll verfolgen, was aus dem etwas fliehenden King hervorgeht. Vermöge seines fanatischen Willens hat er seinen Körper über seinen Zielen vernachlässigt. Der Gesamtausdruck ist wieder typisch nordisch"; die SA (insgesamt acht Zeichnungen von S.A.- Männern); Adolf Hitler (ein Bild): " was das ganze Buch zeigen und beweisen soll, daß nämlich Adolf Hitler ein durch und durch deutsch-germanischer Führer ist und als solcher an der Spitze einer ebenso deutsch-germanischen Mitarbeiterschar und Kampftruppe steht. Derselbe Pulsschlag in allen, dieselbe Hingebung an das große Werk, dieselbe Treue zum Führer und dasselbe Wohlwollen und soziale Empfinden in allen, und deshalb auch rein äußerlich so viel Ähnlichkeit untereinander. Und unter der Führung solcher Männer ist Deutschland nun erwacht. Heil Germanien!" - Erstausgabe, EA. erste Auflage in guter Erhaltung (Rücken etwas verblichenen und unten minimal berieben, sonst gut). - Dieses Werk wurde kurze Zeit nach seinem Erscheinen in Deutschland verboten

A statue of Roosevelt steering a ship?s wheel, with the motto ?F.D.R. THE MAN OF THE HOUR? engraved on the front of the base.

FDR?s experience serving almost eight years as Woodrow Wilson?s Secretary of the Navy adds to th
