        Was will die Phänomenologie Husserls? Sonderdruck aus "Die Tatwelt", Band X, heft 1.

      Berlin, 1934. 8vo. Original printed wrappers. Front wrappers loose and wrappers a bit chipped at extremities. Otherwise very fine. Inscribed at front wrapper and with a 7 line marginal not to p. 15. Pp. 15-32.. First edition, offprint, with presentation-inscription from Husserl ("Mit freundlichen Grüssen von E Husserl") and a 7-line marginal note in Husserl's hand, referring to Fink's "Die/ Phän. Philo-/ sophie/ Edm. Husserls". The present copy encapsules one of the most important periods in the history of phenomenology - the mid 1930'ies is a period of turmoil in the great phenomenologists life, a period in which Husserl transforms many of his basic ideas, and Fink, Husserl's assistant and the person closest to obeserving this transformation, is the primary witness to this historical change. Fink's works from the 30'ies on Husser's philosophy are pivotal to the understanding of the transformation of Husserl's thought - and thus the transformation of phenomenology in general. One can hardly imagine a more interesting association-copy caputing this period of phenomenological transformation. The important German philosopher Eugen Fink initially studied under Husserl in Freiburg, before he famously became his assistant. He counts as one of the most important representatives of phenomenological idealism and is famous for his definition of philosophical problems as "pre-questions" that lead, through ontological practice, to true philosophy. "Eugen Fink was Edmund Husserl's research assistant during the last decade of the renowned phenomenologist's life, a period in which Husserl's philosophical ideas were radically recast." (R. Bruzina, Edmund Husserl and Eugen Fink. Beginnings and Ends in Phenomenology, 1928-1938)

        Ulysses

      London: Random House, 1934. First American edition. Octavo, original white cloth. Fine in a near fine first state dust jacket with a small closed tear to the back panel and one spot to the spine. A very nice example of this dust jacket which is prone to tanning. In a review in The Dial, T.S. Eliot said of Ulysses: "I hold this book to be the most important expression which the present age has found; it is a book to which we are all indebted, and from which none of us can escape." He went on to asserted that Joyce was not at fault if people after him did not understand it: "The next generation is responsible for its own soul; a man of genius is responsible to his peers, not to a studio full of uneducated and undisciplined coxcombs." Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 greatest novels of the 20th century.

        Kassenbuch der Firma Heinrich Jordan, Berlin, für die Jahre 1901 bis 1934.,

      Berlin, - nicht paginiert. Mit überaus zahlreichen handschriftlichen Einträgen sowie diversen beigehefteten Notizzetteln. - Der Band enthält, beginnend mit Januar 1901, für jeden Tag kurze Einträge, deren Charakter sich im Laufe der Jahrzehnte wandelt. Anfangs finden sich kumulativ Umsatzzahlen, dazu tägliche Einträge zum Berliner Wetter, inklusive Angaben zu Temperatur und Luftdruck. Auf Tagesereignisse wird zunächst nicht verwiesen, erst auf dem Blatt für August 1914 wird vermerkt "Beginn des Krieges". Seit 1913 wurden Temperatur und Luftdruck schon nicht mehr vermerkt (nur zwischenzeitlich werden sie vorübergehend kurz erwähnt) und auch die Wetterangaben werden sehr kurz. Das Kriegsende im November 1918 wird ignoriert, dafür beginnen Hinweise auf das politische Geschehen: "Terror in Berlin . Straßenkämpfe . geschlossen wegen Beschießung des Vorwärts-Gebäudes Lindenstraße" (6.-11. Januar 1919); "Streik" (4. März 1919); "Angestellten-Streik. Geschäft kann nicht geöffnet werden" (17. April 1919); "Verkehrs-Angestellten Streik" (1.-12. Juli 1919); "wegen Generalstreik geschlossen" (15.-21. März 1919). Mit Beruhigung der Lage entfallen derartige Anmerkungen, auch die Inflation wird stillschweigend hingenommen. Nach 1918 finden sich vermehrt konkrete Hinweise auf geschäftliche Vorgänge: es werden Konten bei den Banken Deutsche Wirtschaftsbank Zehlendorf, Sparkasse Berlin Schöneberg und Ascher Levy Bad Polzin erwähnt. Gelegentlich werden auch Geschäftskunden erwähnt, so Ullstein, Israel und Co und A.H. Werner. Mit Ullstein war man auch anderweitig geschäftlich verbunden: das Jordansche Haus in der Markgrafenstraße hatte man 1929 an Hans Ullstein verkauft, die darin befindliche Kantine aber (für 60 Reichsmark im Monat) zurückgepachtet. Immer häufiger werden auch die Umsatzsteuer erwähnt sowie Wechsel (auch zurückgegangene). Vermutlich handelte es sich dabei um die Wechsel der Geschäftspartner Jordans. Seit 1932 verzeichnet das Kassenbuch drastische Rückgänge der Einnahmen und Eintragungen, bis schließlich Ende März 1934 die letzte Eintragung erfolgte. -- Jordan gehörte zu den Pionieren des Warenhauses und den Pionieren der Konfektionsbranche. Schon 1839 hatte er in der Markgrafenstraße 108 eine Baumwoll- und Posamentierwarenhandlung mit "Lager türkischrother, ächt violetter und rother Garne" eröffnet. Jordan war der Erste in Berlin, der konfektionierte Wäsche anbot, die in eigenen Werkstätten hergestellt wurde und etablierte das erste Berliner Wäscheversandgeschäft. In den Jahren 1868/69, 1890, 1899 und 1913 erfolgten beträchtliche Erweiterungen des Betriebs. Zum Ende der Firma, das wohl letztendlich eine Folge des Crashs von 1929 gewesen zu sein scheint, konnten wir nichts weiter eruieren. Interessanterweise wird hier im Kassenbuch gegen Ende auch die eigene Firma ausdrücklich im Zusammenhang mit größeren Eingängen von Ratenzahlungen erwähnt, einmal nur als "H.J. Akt.-Ges.", dann auch als "Heinrich Jordan AG". -- Einband berieben und bestoßen, oberes Kapital mit Fehlstellen, unteres Viertel des Rückens nicht professionell mit anderem Leder repariert. Seiten teils etwas fleckig oder tintenfleckig, gelegentlich kleine Randläsuren, insgesamt gut erhalten. Besuchen Sie unseren Stand auf dem Hamburger Antiquariatstag am 21.

        Photographs by Man Ray 1920 Paris 1934

      Hartford: James Thrall Soby, (1934). Speck of loss to the front cover, hint of general wear; a beautiful, near fine copy in spiral-bound illustrated wrappers. While the second edition of this book turns up with some regularity, the true first edition is a legitimate rarity, especially in this condition. Housed in a custom clamshell box. The best copy I have handled.. First Edition, without the mention of a second edition (fictitious or not), no French title page on the verso of the English, and no mention on the title page of any of the contributors. It has become an accepted story in the world of rare books and auction houses that the so-called second edition was constructed only as a sales ploy. Regardless of the veracity of this claim, the true first edition differs enough bibliographically to render the reason irrelevant. Spiral-bound quarto. Text in French and English. Illustrated with 104 photographs printed in a lush gravure, divided into five sections, and comprising many of Man Ray's iconic images, with nineteen rayographs. (Roth 80-81).

      Wannsee, 25. III. 1934. - 4to. 2 SS. Mit gedrucktem Namen am Kopf. An Alexej Jawlensky, dem er – auch im Namen seiner Frau – zum 70. Geburtstag gratuliert. „[ ] Ihnen, lieber Blauer Bruder! wünschen von ganzem Herzen – in banger Zeit um so tiefempfundener – zum Feste des 70. Geburtstages Alles nur erdenklich Gute: vor Allem aber Gesundheit und Schaffenskraft, für künftige Werke, die alles Erreichte noch krönen sollen, wenn das möglich wäre! [ ]" - Jawlensky litt damals an einer Lähmung von Hand- und Kniegelenken, die ihn zwang, in sehr kleinen Bildformaten zu malen.

        Oeuvres complètes publiées pour la première fois par Paul Harsin.

      Paris: Librairie du recueil Sirey,, 1934. 3 volumes, octavo. Original printed wrappers, uncut and largely unopened. 1 plate in volume one. Short tear at foot of spine to volume 1; an excellent set. First edition of this important and scholarly edition of Law's works, the first modern attempt to include all of Law's writings and correspondence, preceded only by the collected edition published in 1790 by Sénovert. More recent scholarship has discounted some of the works included here as Law's, but it remains a very useful edition.
