        Collection of Letters from Friderike Zweig

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. A small collection of interesting autograph letters in English from the first wife of the important Austrian novelist and biographer who was one of the most important writers in German in the inter-war period. One letter is addressed to a literary agent and written on the Zweigs' Salzburg letterhead, dated September 20, 1935. Four further letters, from 1944-1953, were written in New York after Friderike Zweig's emigration and are addressed to Shea Tennenbaum [also spelled Tenenbaum], a Yiddish writer and journalist who was evidently an admirer of Stefan Zweig's work. Also included is a newspaper clipping from the New York Post reporting on Zweig's suicide in 1942 and interviewing Friderike Zweig: "though she was overcome by grief she was not surprised by the news that he and his second wife had ended their lives yesterday."<br>The letters are written in pen on various sizes of notepaper and are overall in fine condition, with some light age wear, folds and light toning. All but the 1935 letter include the original envelopes, two with the return address of the Writers' Service Center, and some of which bear later notes in another hand, some in Hebrew. <br>In her letter to a Miss Strassman [1 p., September 20, 1935], Zweig expresses pleasure at their meeting: "...My husband too was very fond of meeting you." She notes that they have not received a book and requests assistance in procuring "the collection of 'Hausexemplare' which you saw in my husband's room... He just left me again for Paris and London."  She further adds, "May I bother you still with something else: my daughter should like to publish her photos of Toscanini and other artists famous in U.S.A. in American magazines and we should be glad to have a help." In Friderike Zweig's first letter to Tennenbaum [4 pp., March 3, 1944 - NB. Full text available on request], she thanks him for sending his article [in Yiddish] about Stefan Zweig: "I shall ask somebody to read it to me, and the gratefulness for your writing will make it easy to me to understand this reach [rich] and powerful language." She writes that she is enclosing another article about her ex-husband from the magazine Menorah, which she says is full of "lies" and offensive to Zweig's memory. This article, by a "Miss A.," is almost certainly Hannah Arendt's scathing 1943 review of Zweig's World of Yesterday, titled "Portrait of a Period," in which she attacked Zweig for remaining apolitical in the face of antisemitism. Friderike defends her husband passionately: "That he did not mix in politics just on opposite reason, namely his idea that he can damage the Jewish cause in speaking to [sic] loudly as a Jew... His whole work was to defend the rights of the humbles [sic] against some oppression and the devotion for greatness not in sake of fame." She further criticizes the journalist: "This woman - in the shadow of a grave - turns the words in the mouth of the most honorable man, in making him part of that, what he himself condemned..." and goes on to ask Tennenbaum to write a letter to the editor of the magazine, as "My health is not so good, so I cannot risk to get too excited in writing to this woman."  In her next letter [4 pp., September 21, 1944], Friderike thanks Tennenbaum for sending another article [in Yiddish], saying that she will ask a friend to read it and tell her what it says: "it will be a pleasure for me, to hear what you say." She goes on to ask after a Graziana, perhaps Tenenbaum's wife, and ends the letter with warm wishes. Following this, she writes again [postmarked December 6, 1944], sending Tenenbaum the program for an American-European Friendship event on December 16, 1944 and writing on the verso that he should come "and bring Graciana along." The final note from Friderike Zweig [3 pp. on very small notepaper, December 1952] thanks Tennenbaum for his contribution to the festschrift for her 70th birthday. "I nearly could understand everything and will have a friend to tell me every word."  On the verso, an autograph note to Tenenbaum from Harry Zohn, German-English translator, scholar of German literature, and editor of the festschrift, mentions he is sending Tenenbaum a copy.<br>Friderike Zweig, who was married to Zweig from 1920 to 1938, was herself a writer and translator. After their divorce, they remained good friends and were in close contact through letters, even after Zweig fled Europe for Brazil, where, with his second wife, he committed suicide in 1942. Friderike emigrated to the United States in 1940, where she founded the Writers Service Center, an organization to aid European refugees, and also chaired the American-European Friendship Association. Throughout her life she remained a great proponent of her husband's life and work, serving as the honorary president of the International Stefan Zweig Society, and writing two books about his life.<br>"Shea (short for Joshua) Tenenbaum (1910â??1989) was born in Bobrinik near Lublin, the youngest of 12 siblings. He became a typesetter at age 14 and began publishing at 16... Before coming to the U.S. in 1934 he lived in various cities in Europe... Like many Yiddish writers, he worked for some years in New York; he then spent time in Denver recovering from tuberculosis. From there he traveled to California, but he missed the cultural life of New York and returned after a year. He received the National Jewish Book Award in 1985 for From Ash and Fire Is Your Crown." (Pakn Treger, Magazine of the Yiddish Book Center, no. 60, Fall 2009.)

        Sonnets [together with] Lyrics.

      London: Rich & Cowan,, 1935. Two works, octavo. Original blue cloth, titles gilt to spines. Portrait frontispiece to each work. Cloth lightly faded at the extremities and spotted, still very good condition, internally sound and clean, with the dust jackets only slightly spine-toned and bearing a very few marks and small chips. First editions, first impressions, presentation copies inscribed by Lord Alfred Douglas on the front free endpapers of both titles "Hazel Hergenhahn from Alfred Douglas, April 1943". This presentation set includes 13 pages of typed letters (likely carbon copies, but the texts apparently unpublished) from Douglas to Hergenhahn, dated December 1939 to June 1940. The correspondence is lively and extensive, with frequent mentions of Oscar Wilde and the ongoing struggle for his own legacy and reputation, waged over several books and plays by Douglas and others. He also mentions his struggles with American publishers, alludes to other writers, and makes occasional reports on the Second World War. The recipient of these books and letters was Baroness Hazel Hergenhahn, a well-travelled Californian lady of extensive cultural acquaintances. These editions, published together, constitute Douglas's consolidation of four decades of poetic output. The rear panels of both jackets carry an appreciation of Douglas' poetry by Thomas Earle Welby. Very scarce together with the dust jackets and inscribed.

        Autograph letter signed ("Freud"). [Vienna], 5. XI. 1935.

      1935. 4to. 2 pp. On stationery printed "Prof. Dr. Freud Wien, IX., Berggasse 19". To Stefan Zweig, about the Nobel Prize, Shakespeare, and his "Moses and Monotheism", thanking him for his letter and for the cutting from the Sunday Times, observing that his article is the declaration of a friend, noting his surprise to learn that he has been awarded the Nobel Prize on the promptings of the Vienna University, referring to the opposition to him when he was awarded the Frankfurt Goethe Prize in 1930, reproaching himself for expatiating during his visit on the contents of his Moses, instead of letting him talk about his work and plans, stating that Moses shall never see the light of day again, concluding in a postscript by asking him whether he is interested in the debate concerning the identity of Shakespeare, and admitting that he is virtually convinced that Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford, was in fact Shakespeare. - Despite the views expressed by Freud here, "Der Mann Moses und die monotheistische Religion", his last completed book, was in fact published four years later, in 1939. Although nominated twelve times for the Nobel Prize for Medicine, Freud was never awarded that honour, the Nobel committee being of the opinion that his work was of no proven scientific value. Romain Rolland's nomination of him for the Literature Prize in 1936 was also unsuccessful. - Horizontal fold, some light creasing and slight damage to edges.

        USSR Architecture [and] Construction of Moscow].

      Moskva - 1938 1935 - USSR Architecture (Organ Soyuza sovetskikh arkhitektorov, Moskva, 1936-37): 21 issues (1936: issues No3 - 12; 1937: issues No1 - 11), complete with all ll., original wrappers; occasional spotting and soiling, some occasional light mold, heavier to last 15 ll. of issue 9 for 1937, margins and spines of wrappers slightly chipped. Construction of Moscow (Mossovet, Moskva, 1935-38): No6 and 17-18 for 1935; No4-8, 10-12 and 22 for 1936; No6, 12, 22 for 1937 and No16 for 1938, most issues with plates, including some folding, original wrappers; some light marginal waterstaining in several issues, light soiling. A collection of issues of the two famous Soviet architectural periodicals that together provide an insight into the unique marriage of the architectural aspirations and ideology of the Stalin's epoch. The "USSR architecture" was an illustrated monthly periodical that was published from 1933 until 1992 with some interruptions. It included overviews of the domestic architecture, building projects as well as articles on European and American architecture. The tone of reviews obeys a strict ideological framework. Articles about projects by Soviet architects are impregnated with pompous praise, whereas many of those reviewing architecture abroad overuse such notions as "battle", "controversy of capitalism" and "crises". One of the most interesting projects that is featured in three issues offered here (No7 for the year 1936, No 5 for 1937 and No11 for 1937) is the famous USSR pavilion at the International Exposition dedicated to Art and Technology in Modern Life held in Paris in 1937. Designed by the B.M. Iofan the building was lined with Samarkand marble. The entrance to the pavilion was decorated with bas-reliefs by sculptor I.M. Chaikoff featuring the coats of arms of the USSR and 11 Union republics. The most notable part of the pavilion was the 24-meter sculptural group "A Worker and a Collective Farm Girl", made of stainless steel after a design by Vera Mukhina, which symbolised the achievements of the socialist industrialisation. The other periodical "The Construction of Moscow" was founded in 1923 and often featured stellar avant-garde designs by Gustav Klutsis, Vasilii Elkin, and El Lissitzky. It ran through the 1930s, but progressively became less and less modernist in terms of both form and content as time went on. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Extensive autograph on typed letter by V. Meyerhold

      Borovikha 1935 - Borovikha, the 5th of December of 1935. 6 pp. 30?21 ?m. This letter is Meyerhold's response to memo sent to him by accountant-general of Meyerhold Theatre about employees getting personal salaries. This letter is addressed to Vladimir Glinsky (1888-1938), assistant director for the Theatre. The handwritten part is dedicated to personal salaries of workers and actors, first of all, Zinaida Raich, Igor' Iliinsky, Mikhail Tsarev, S. Khmel'nitsky et al. Vsevolod Meyerhold (1874-1940) was a Russian theatrical producer, director, and actor whose provocative experiments in nonrealistic theatre made him one of the productive forces in modern theatre. Meyerhold founded his own theatre in 1920, which was known from 1923 as the Meyerhold Theatre until 1938. He inspired revolutionary artists and filmmakers such as Sergei Eisenstein, who studied with him. In the early 1930s, when Joseph Stalin repressed all avant-garde art and experimentation, his works were proclaimed antagonistic and alien to the Soviet people. Before his death he was tortured, and executed by the state (cleared of all charges in 1955). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Dante's Inferno (Original screenplay for the 1935 film)

      Fox Film Corporation 1935 - Final Script for the 1935 film, "Dante's Inferno," directed by Harry Lachman, written for the screen by Philip Klein and Robert M. Yost, and starring Spencer Tracy and Claire Trevor. Carnival barker Spencer Tracy befriends an elderly concessionaire and turns the old man's picturesque but stodgy display depicting Dante's Inferno into a major attraction, complete with full orchestra and scantily clad "devil girls." He eventually buys up the rest of the carnival, using cold-blooded tactics that result in the suicide of a fellow concessionaire, and within five years is a millionaire tycoon of the entertainment industry. In an important sequence, for nearly ten minutes, the movie audience is treated to a lavish depiction of hell wherein Tracy is warned of the dangers of hell, magnificently photographed by cinematographer Rudolph Mate. Although the Fox Film Corporation produced the film, it was distributed after Fox's merger with Twentieth Century, which began trading on May 31, 1935. Green titled wrappers, with a holograph pencil notation of project No. 1107, dated 11/26/34, and with credits in manual type for Klein and Yost. Title page is integral first page of text. 131 leaves, mimeograph, with several change pages, all dated 11/28/34.

        Liberty Landing. An outline of a plan for the unification of transportation facilities for the Port of New York.

      None. 1935 - I recently uncovered an interesting, unpublished and probably not-acceptable engineering report to extend the ports capacity in the Hudson River at New York City--the ports of the area being famously over-busy for a long period of time, especially right before World War II. Charles Palliser and Frederick W. Capon presented a proposal in 1935 for a unification of the port and airport facilities to take care of the overcrowding and overworked problem. (Mimeographed?) 1935. 13x8.5", cover sheet; 1 sheet with photograph of drawing, 4 leaves of text. Staple bound at top. Good condition. Provenance: from the Library of Congress, via the Copyright Office. +++What they came up with was Liberty Landing, a mile-long and half-mile-wide facility that nearly bumped into the Statue of Liberty (and hence its name). The plan called for backfilling the &#147;flats&#148; that were just south of Jersey City, as &#147;the natural formation of these were very favorable&#148;, which meant that the airport-port combo would extend all the way into the harbor to the edge of the channel, which would put it further out than the Statue of Liberty, which would also be just hundreds of feet away from the end of the north runway. Also attached to the backfill and new land would be a one-mile-long floating dock. Oh my! The floating island would also have vehicular tunnels that connected it to Staten Island and the Battery. There were facilities for seaplanes, airplanes, railroads, dirigibles, and trucks, plus a military installation, a custom&#146;s house and the US Mail Service, so that all commerce would converge at this one point, which sounds interesting (for about 20 seconds). +++This is a good candidate for the &#147;Better Left Undone&#148; award for 1935. As I look at the photograph of the aerial view of the plan it strikes me that if the designers increased the surface area by only 125% or so they could&#146;ve connected the new facility with Governor&#146;s Island AND Brooklyn, building a land bridge from Jersey City to Coney Island&#151;a superbly bad idea to cap an already strongly bad idea. The report is called, simply, Liberty Landing, and published by the architect in Jackson Heights, NYC, 16 September 1935. This is also the U.S. Copyright Deposit copy (accepted 10 October 1935), which is where the history of this project ends. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        [Two Leaves of Revised Typescript for:] "THE MILLIONAIRESS."

      [Np, nd]. Two leaves, quarto, on blue-green stock. With manuscript additions in red and black ink. Folded at one time for mailing, otherwise very good. Two leaves of an unidentified draft of "The Millionairess," annotated with revisions by Shaw in his distinctive hand. The leaves are denoted as "Act 1. Page 138," and "Act II, Page 162" (the former typed, the latter in Shaw's hand). The typed portions are themselves noted as for substitution in an earlier draft and are identified as such in Shaw's hand on one leaf and in typescript on another. Both leaves bear his manuscript direction to substitute a line of dialogue for Epifania in place of lines 3, 4, 5, & 6 on page 156. The play was not published in book form until 1935 (in Trebitsch's German translation) and 1936, in English, with two other plays, by Constable. The 1938 publication in volume 33 of the Collected Edition was revised by Shaw, and he adapted it for broadcast by the BBC in 1942.

        Gods and Mortals in Love

      1935. first edition. With Nine Colored Plates by Edmund DulacDULAC, Edmund, illustrator. WILLIAMSON, Hugh Ross. Gods and Mortals in Love. London: Country Life Limited, [1935]. First edition. Large quarto (11 x 8 5/8 inches; 279 x 218 mm.). 83, [1, blank] pp. Nine full-page color plates.Publisher's cream tweed cloth flecked with royal blue. Front cover and spine decoratively lettered in blue. A near fine copy.The plates depict various relationships between mythical deities and humans, most of which end tragically?The plates:1. Aphrodite and Adonis2. Selene and Edymion3. Pluto and Persephone4. Psyche and Cerberus5. Pan and Syrinx6. Orpheus and Eurydice7. Jason and Medea8. Herakles and Deianeira9. Perseus and Andromeda"The illustrations in this book have already appeared as front pages in the American weekly.A book with coloured pictures and an illustrated book are not quite the same thing.One may say that each has its own function and its own appeal.This is presented as a book with coloured pictures." (Edmund Dulac, 1935 on verso of title-page)."?Meanwhile work for American Weekly continued with the publication in February 1931 of Perseus and Andromeda, the first cover for what was to be Dulac's largest series for the magazine; eleven illustrations of tales from Ovid under the title of Love Stories the Ancients Believed In. The pictures portrayed the lovers themselves at the most dramatic moment in the story, but, with the exceptions of the killing of Nessus in Hercules and Dejanira, and the exciting figure of Perseus sweeping down to kill the beast attacking Andromeda, they seemed a departure from Dulac's high standards. The fault lay in his attempt to portray his characters, Pan and Syrinx, Circe and Ulysses, and Pluto and Persephone, as eternal symbols in the manner of Tanglewood Tales, but the larger size of the watercolors meant that his remote, impersonal approach would not work as effectively as in the book, so that the figures appeared posed, and the histrionic gestures and staring eyes, meant to show deep emotion, had no interest. Nevertheless, the illustrations were popular enough to be reprinted in Good Housekeeping with an accompanying text by Hugh Ross Williamson, and, in 1935, were compiled in book form under the title Gods and Mortals in Love. Dulac designed a special cover with a silver Cupid and lettering in the style of an ancient Greek inscription." (White, pp. 144-148).Hughey, 84; White, 39.

(= Opus VII der Einhorn-Presse / \"Als Umrahmungen zweite >Indische Fuge< über das Thema der Âtman im Herzen und im Weltall\". - Als Handschrift. Einmaliger Sonderdruck der EINHORN - PRESSE). Wikipedia: Melchior Lechter (geb. 2. Oktober 1865 in Münster (Westfalen); gest. 8. Oktober 1937 in Raron, Kanton Wallis, Schweiz) war ein deutscher Maler, Graphiker und Buchkünstler. Als Monogramm (ML) vor allem bei seinen buchkünstlerischen Arbeiten benutzte er den Buchstaben \"M\" mittig geschnitten vom Buchstaben \"L\"...- Mit 14 begann er eine Ausbildung zum Glasmaler. Nach der Arbeit belegte er bei der Münsterschen Kunstgenossenschaft Kurse an der Zeichen-, Mal- und Modellierschule. Nach der Ausbildung ging er 1884 nach BERLIN, wo er an der HOCHSCHULE DER BILDENDEN KÜNSTE studierte und nebenbei als Glasmaler arbeitete. Nach dem Ende des Studiums malte Lechter zunächst Gebrauchskunst, etwa für Werbemittel, bis Fritz GURLITT 1896 eine Ausstellung einrichtete. Lechter schaffte damit den Durchbruch seiner Kunst in Berlin. Prägend war die Begegnung mit Stefan GEORGE, für den Lechter viele Bücher im Georg BONDI Verlag buchkünstlerisch gestaltete. - Er erhielt 1898 von Jakob PALLENBERG den Auftrag zur Ausgestaltung des Pallenberg-Saales mit Glasfenstern und Mosaiken am Kölner MUSEUM für Angewandte Kunst. Für die 1899/1900 ausgeführte Gesamtgestaltung erhielt er 1900 auf der PARISER WELTAUSSTELLUNG einen Grand Prix...- Am 30. September 1910 reiste Lechter mit Karl WOLFSKEHL nach Indien ab. Lechter begab sich dort auf eine fünfmonatige Reise über CEYLON, MADRAS und ADYAR, das Zentrum der Adyar-TG. Dabei führte er Tagebuch. Dieses wurde nach seiner Rückkehr in kleiner Auflage (333 Exemplare) als zweiter Druck der von Lechter gegründeten EINHORN PRESSE mit besonderem Buchschmuck veröffentlicht.

        Poe’s Tales of Mystery and Imagination.

      London: George G. Harrap & Company, 1935. First signed limited edition of this Arthur Rackham. Quarto, original full vellum, titles and tooling to the spine and front panel, top edge gilt, pictorial endpapers. Illustrations by Arthur Rackham including 12 tipped-in color plates, 17 black & white illustrations. Signed by Arthur Rackham on the limitation page, as issued. In the original publisher's slipcase with printed spine label, one of 460 copies. In near fine condition with a touch of rubbing. Uncommon in this condition and in the original slipcase. The title "Tales of Mystery and Imagination" was first used by The World's Classics and printed by Grant Richard in 1902. The title of this collection was then adopted by Padraic Colum in 1908 in view of the growing reputation of Poe's taste for suspense, especially in the context of what his French critic M. Brunetiere called events "on the margin" of life. The original collection, in keeping with its title, deliberately excluded Poe's poems, comedies and essays. There are twenty-five tales including The Pit and the Pendulum, The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Fall of the House of Usher and The Descent into the Maelstrom.

        A Study of Tom Thomson. The Story of a Man Who Looked for Beauty and for Truth in the Wilderness

      Discus Press, Toronto - 1935, 1st limited edition. () Very good. xxii, 133pp. Octavo. Green cloth covered boards with gilt lettering on spine. Text block is generally very clean and bright. A few B / W illustrations within. Four tipped in colour plate reproductions, including frontis. Complete with the original slip case. A nice copy. Signed and numbered in black ink by the author in the limitation page. 32 / 100 copes. Canadian author Blowden Davies moved to Toronto in 1921 where she met with the GROUP of SEVEN, a group of artists renowned for their post-impressionist styled portrayals of Canadian landscapes. Her interest in Canada's artistic community grew leading to the authorship of this book. Davies' texts are well known for exploring Canadian social history. Blodwen Davies was a prolific writer, publishing works including: Storied Streets of Quebec (1927), Old Father Forest (1930), Daniel Du Lhut (1930), Ruffles and Rapiers (1930), Saguenay and Gaspe (1932), Romantic Quebec (1932), the Charm of Ottawa (1932), Youth, Marriage and the Family (1948), Quebec: Portrait of a Province (1952) and Ottawa: Portrait of a Capital (1954). The majority of Davies' work was historical, but in the years leading up to her death she developed an interest in folklore and mennonite history in Canada. It would appear there are two issues of the book, one with the limitation page indicating a limitation of only 100 copies as in this example. We also have a copy with a limitation page showing 450 copies were printed. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
