        Paideia. Die Formung des griechischen Menschen. 3 Bde.

      Berlin & Leipzig, Walter de Gruyter & Co., 1934, 1944 & 1947. Lex 8vo. 3 original blue full cloth w. gilt lettering to spines and to front board of volume one. Spines a bit sunned, hinges of volume one weak, hinges of volumes two and three restored w. new endpapers A nice and clean copy. (8), 513, (3); (8), 418; (8), 462 pp.. The first edition (of all three volumes) of Jaeger's seminal "three-volume history of the Greek mind" (his own words), which came to hugely influence the study of Greek culture and civilization as well as modern philosophy and political thought. Few other modern works within the field of classics and philology have had an impact comparable to this classic of the twentieth century.The German-born classicist Werner Wilhelm Jaeger (1888-1961) was educated at the Universities of Marburg and Berlin, and from the latter he received a Ph.D. for his dissertation on the Metaphysics of Aristotle, a work which landed him the professorship and Nietzsche's chair at the University of Basel, -without having written his Habilitationsschrift! In 1921, Jaeger settled in Berlin, which he had to leave in 1936 because of Hitler, and he immigrated to America, where he stayed for the rest of his life. Here he became professor, first at the University of Chicago, and in 1939 at Harvard University. Jaeger had written and published the first volume of his main work "Paideia, The Idols of Greek Culture" a couple of years before he left Germany, and in America he finished the last two volumes of this massive philosophical and political work on education, culture and the ideals that formed Greek civilization in ancient Greece. Under the name of "Paideia", the cultural nature of education is traced from Homer to Demosthenes in the hope of giving back the values of the ancient Greeks to 20th century Europe, which according to Jaeger was dominated by decadence and cultural decline. After the appearance of Jeager's work, the concept of "Paideia" became hugely influential among critics of educational systems, and the work in general has moulded the way that modern man understood the culture of the ancient Greeks as well as his own. The work has had a deep impact on several fields, ranging from philosophy and politics to sociology, classics etc. It is rare to find all three volumes together in first editions

        Autograph letter, signed

      Amherst, 1934. Single sheet measuring 6 1/8 by 8 inches. Addressed to Mr. Cutler, who was the principal of Athol High School in Massachusetts. Dated November 14, 1934, Frost appears to be responding to Cutler's request for a lecture, which he declines due to "being sent south for my health," though he adds that "(t)he health is no very serious matter but serious enough for caution." Although overtly a standard reply, there is a great deal of biographical subtext at play in this letter. A month or so after this letter, Elinor Frost wrote to her friend Edith Fobes, noting that "(w)e are here in the South on Robert's account. He is hoping to avoid one of those grippe and rheumatic infections that he has suffered from the last two winters." Ironically, though, it was Elinor who was suffering the most during this time, as 1934 also marked the year in which the Frosts' youngest daughter, Marjorie, died from complications during the birth of her first child. In the same letter to Fobes, Elinor wrote that she had suffered "a severe attack of angina," which, she reported, "is added to the other heart complications." These would eventually lead to her death from a heart attack in March, 1938. A fine letter, with the original holograph envelope.

        Gebrauchsgraphik: International Advertising Art - Twenty-Four Issues

      Frensel Und Engelbrecher. Berlin. Frensel Und Engelbrecher. 1931-1934. Bound in pictorial wrappers. 4to. 9.25" x 12.25 Profusely illustrated throughout by chromolithographs, colour and monochrome plates - many tipped-in, illustrations en texte, drawings,die cuts, etc. reproducing period advertising from a myriad of international sources." Gebrauchsgraphik, Monatschrift zur Förderung künst-lerischer Reklame (Commercial Graphics, Monthly Magazine for Promoting Art in Advertising), which was published in Berlin from 1924 until 1944,was the leading voice of the Avant-Garde influence on the European Commercial Art and Advertising industries before World War II. In the thirties, all roads led through Berlin, and Gebrauchsgraphik spotlighted all of the aesthetic trends fermenting in Europe -- Art Deco and Surrealism from Paris, Constructivism from Moscow, Futurist Fascism from Rome, De Stijl and Dutch typography from Amsterdam, and of course the spreading influence of the Dessau Bauhaus. A journal that was truly international in scope ,all articles and cutlines are presented in both German and English.The thirties were the Golden Age for European Poster Art and Gebrauchsgraphik was in the perfect place to showcase all the latest and greatest trends and rising artists for the rest of the world. Gebrauchsgraphik was an incredibly influential journal and agenda setter, utilizing the latest printing and press technologies which often included custom colors, bound-in samples and advertising fold-outs, foil stamps, die-cuts and other special finishing effects." - Randall Ross. Founded by Professor H K Frensel , Gebrauchsgraphik followed his concept that advertising should be a positive force in society through the development and presentation of innovative graphics. The magazine never espoused any specific philosophy but was open to all design directions executed to the highest standards of craftsmanship.Today, Gebrauchsgraphik is regarded as a rare and most desirable source for the appreciation and display of pure Art Deco Graphic Arts. Most issues present with moderate wear and rubbing to covers with some short tears, soiling, small dampstains etc. Issues range from Good to Very Good.
