      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.

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.

        The River War, An Account of the Reconquest of the Soudan

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1933. First U.S. edition. Hardcover. This is the U.S. first edition of Churchill's second book in the striking original dust jacket. Originally published in England in 1899, this was one of the few Churchill books that did not see a U.S. first edition concurrent with the British. In 1933 a new edition was issued in both England and, for the first time, in the U.S. with a bibliographically significant new introduction by the author explaining that "A generation has grown up which knows little of why we are in Egypt and the Sudan.” This is one of just 1,040 U.S. first edition copies issued. Per Richard Langworth (p.35), binding was probably done in England, using English sheets and a Scribner's title page cancel, since copies are bound in the identical lilac cloth as the Eyre & Spottiswoode edition of the same year. However, the striking dust jacket is unique to this U.S. first edition, printed in red and black, bearing R. C. Woodville's dramatic illustration of the Charge of the 21st Lancers. This copy is very good in a very good minus dust jacket. The cloth binding is tight and clean and has obviously spent life jacketed, despite shelf wear to the bottom edges, light wear to extremities, and a hint of spine toning. The contents retain a crisp feel despite some age-toning. The book feels unread. We find no spotting or previous ownership marks. Even the page edges are clean. Mild differential toning to the endpapers corresponds to the dust jacket flaps, confirming that this copy has spent life jacketed. All maps and plans are present. The dust jacket is complete, apart from fractional loss to the spine ends and corners and a neatly price-clipped upper front flap. There is light toning to the spine, minor overall soiling, and a tiny, stray ink mark in a blank margin of the lower left front face. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. The River War recounts Churchill's experiences and perspective on British involvement in the Sudan. The text is arresting, insightful, powerfully descriptive, and of enduring relevance. Mohammed Ahmed was a messianic Islamic leader in central and northern Sudan in the final decades of the 19th century. In 1883 the Mahdists overwhelmed the Egyptian army of British commander William Hicks, and Great Britain ordered the withdrawal of all Egyptian troops and officials from the Sudan. In 1885, General Gordon famously lost his life in a doomed defense of the capitol, Khartoum, where he had been sent to lead evacuation of Egyptian forces. Though the Mahdi died in 1895, his theocracy continued until 1898, when General Kitchener reoccupied the Sudan. With Kitchener was a very young Winston Churchill, who would participate in the battle of Omdurman in September 1898, where the Mahdist forces were decisively defeated. In his book about the British campaign in the Sudan, Churchill - a young officer in a colonial British army - was unusually sympathetic to the Mahdist forces and critical of Imperial cynicism and cruelty. This is manifestly evident in the highly critical comment about Kitchener prominently quoted and bordered in red on the front face of the dust jacket – something else unique to this first U.S. edition. Here is a chief figure of the Second World War on horseback on a colonial battlefield, participating in what has been called by some the last "genuine" cavalry charge of the British Army. This work offers us the candid perspective of the future great man of the 20th century from the distinctly 19th century battlefields where Churchill learned to write and earned his early fame.
