      1935/ 1937.. Gebundene Ausgabe. Mit seinem 'Gesetz der homologen Reihen' und seiner Genzentren-Theorie hat sich Nikolai Iwanowitsch Vavilov (1887 1943) einen bleibenden Platz unter den Großen der Genetik und der Pflanzenzüchtung erworben. Sein Name steht aber nicht nur für wichtige wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse und Fortschritte, sondern auch für die Tragik eines Wissenschaftlerlebens unter der stalinistischen Willkürherrschaft. Seine Erkenntnisse waren bahnbrechend in der Botanik. Umfangreich waren auch seine Arbeiten über die theoretischen Grundlagen der Pflanzenzüchtung, über wissenschaftliche Grundlagen für die Organisation der Saatzucht und der staatlichen Approbation (lat: Zulassung) von Sorten. 1935 - 37 erschien sein dreibändiges Handbuch 'Theoretische Grundlagen der Pflanzenzüchtung' von welchem hier der erste Band angeboten wird, bestehend aus 29 Kap. Die hier angebotenen Bände stammen aus einer teilaufgelösten wissenschaftlichen Bibliothek und tragen die entsprechenden Kennzeichnungen (Instituts-Stempel...). Der Zustand ist ansonsten ordentlich und dem Alter entsprechend gut; KOMPLETTPREIS für 7 Bände; bei Versand ins Ausland erfragen Sie bitte zuerst die Versandkosten;

        S/W Porträt-Photographie. [ca. 16,7 x 11,8 cm].

      Praha - Vinohrady Central European Photopress, o. J. [um 1935].. . Fotographen-St. a. Rückseiten, leicht fleckig a. Kante, Oberfläche leicht verkratzt. Schöner Original Silbergelatine Abzug. - Masaryk (1850 - 1937), war Gründer und erster Staatspräsident der Tschechoslowakei. Er studierte von 1872 bis 1876 Philosophie in Wien (unter anderen bei Franz Brentano) und Leipzig (unter anderen bei Wilhelm Wundt). 1876 promovierte er, 1878 habilitierte er mit einer Schrift über den Suizid. 1879 wurde er Dozent in Wien, 1882 außerordentlicher und 1897 ordentlicher Professor in Prag. 1886 wurde er auf einen Schlag einer breiten Öffentlichkeit bekannt, als er sich in den Streit um zwei angeblich aus dem Mittelalter stammende, in Wirklichkeit aber zu Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts gefälschte Handschriften ("Kralova" und "Hora Zelena") einschaltete. In der Zeitschrift 'Athenäum' ließ er die Gegner der Echtheit der Königinhofer und Grünberger Handschriften zu Wort kommen und vertrat vehement die Meinung, dass eine moderne Nation sich nicht auf eine erfundene Vergangenheit berufen solle (siehe auch unsere Artikelnummer 9913AB). 1887 ging er auch in die Politik und gründete eine Gruppe unter dem Namen Die Realisten. 1891 wurde er für die so genannten Jungtschechen, einer tschechisch-nationalen Partei, in den österreichischen Reichsrat gewählt, trat aber wegen Meinungsverschiedenheiten mit dieser Partei 1893 wieder zurück. 1900 gründete er die Realistische Partei, für die er 1900-1914 im Reichsrat saß. Nach Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkriegs verließ er Böhmen und ging ins Exil nach Frankreich. Dort und in anderen westeuropäischen Ländern propagierte er in Zusammenarbeit mit der tschechischen und der slowakischen Emigration die Gründung eines gemeinsamen Staates nach Kriegsende (Neoslawismus). Ab Mai 1917 hielt er sich in Russland auf, wo er die so genannte Tschechoslowakische Legion organisierte, ab März 1918 war er in den USA, wo er Ende Mai 1918 mit der slowakischen Emigration den Pittsburgher Vertrag über die Gründung der Tschechoslowakei aushandelte. Am 14. November 1918 wurde er von der Tschechoslowakischen Nationalversammlung zum Präsidenten gewählt, am 21. Dezember 1918 kehrte er in die Tschechoslowakei zurück. In der Folge wurde ganz Böhmen und Mähren (einschließlich des geschlossenen deutschen Siedlungsgebiets in Böhmen, Mähren und österr. Schlesien - Sudetenland) sowie ungefähr das Gebiet der heutigen Slowakei zum Teil auch gegen den Widerstand der Bewohner von tschechoslowakischen Truppen und Truppen der Alliierten als das Gebiet des neuen Staats Tschechoslowakei besetzt. Masaryk wurde insgesamt dreimal wiedergewählt (1920, 1927 und 1934) und war bis zu seinem Tod die dominierende Persönlichkeit des neuen Staates. Nach seinem Rücktritt am 14. Dezember 1935 folgte ihm Edvard Bene nach. (Zitat)

        Oktoberfestfahne "Eröffnungsrennen - 125 Jahre Münchener Oktoberfest 1810-1935", der Ehrenpreis für den Sieger des Eröffnungspferderennens am 29. September 1935

      [München] 1935. Die Fahne weißt zahlreiche aufgenähte Gold-Ornamente auf. Das Bild ist in Öl auf den Stoff der Fahne gemalt. Maße (H x B): Fahne 107 x 72 cm; Rahmen 129 x 94 cm Zustand: siehe Bild; Die Fahne ist gut erhalten und befindet sich in einem Bilderrahmen hinter Glas. Der Bilderrahmen ist ein massiver und schwerer Holzrahmen. PREIS SOWIE WEITERE DETAILS UND FOTOS AUF ANFRAGE / PRICE, MORE DETAILS AND PHOTOS ON REQUEST.. Sehr seltenes Sammlerstück in TOP-QUALITÄT! - Die Fahne stammt von einem der Wies'n Pferderennen und ist vermutlich die Siegerfahne des Eroeffnungsrennens, das am 29. September 1935 stattfand. Die Fahne ist ein Familienerbstueck aus der Familie des damaligen Siegers, die von einem Bauernhof in Unterbachern [85232 Bergkirchen, ca. 4 km nordwestlich von Dachau], stammt. Gewonnen wurde die Fahne vom Urgrossvater J. Kronschnabl aus Unterbachern der bei diesem Rennen zwei Pferde am Start hatte. Die Starter des Rennens sind im original Programm zum Festzug und den Rennen auf Seite 27 zu finden. (http://daten.digitale-sammlungen.de/~db/0004/bsb00049107/images/index.html?id=00049107&fip=eayayztsewqeayaxssdasyztsqrseayaxs&no=14&seite=29) - Die Pferderennen sind einer der traditionellsten Veranstaltungen auf dem Oktoberfest und waren seit dem ersten Oktoberfest fester Bestandteil. Zwischen dem ersten und dem zweiten Weltkrieg fand das Oktoberfest nur noch sporadisch statt und die Pferderennen wurden erst 1934 wieder aufgenommen und hatten dann bis 1939 Bestand. Nach dem Krieg fanden Pferderennen nur zum 150-jaehrigen und zum 200-jaehrigen Jubilaeum im Jahr 2010 statt. - Das heute bekannte, große Münchener Oktoberfest blickt mittlerweile auf eine über 200-jährige Geschichte zurück. Es fand erstmals am 17. Oktober 1810 statt. Anlässlich der Hochzeit von Kronprinz Ludwig und Prinzessin Therese am 12. Oktober 1810 veranstaltete der Bankier und Major Andreas Michael Dall'Armi auf einer Wiese vor den Stadtmauern Münchens ein großes Pferderennen. Seitdem heißt das Gelände Theresienwiese, woher die mundartliche Bezeichnung Wiesn für das Oktoberfest stammt.

"1900-1906 Besuch der Kunstgewerbeschule La Chaux-de-Fonds, zuerst Ausbildung zum Graveur und Ziseleur, ab 1905 Studiengang Kunst und Dekoration unter der Leitung von Charles L'Eplattenier. Dieser bewegte ihn dazu, sich mit Architektur zu befassen [..]. [..] 1930 zeigte Le Corbusier in seinem Projekt 'La Ville radieuse' (Die strahlende Stadt), wie eine Stadt ohne Vororte aussähe. [..] Der Architekt, Maler, Bildhauer, Städtebauer und Theoretiker Le Corbusier übte einen massgebenden Einfluss auf die Architektur des 20. Jahrhunderts aus." (Aus: P. G. Gerosa, in HLS). Vgl. auch Andreas Krasser, Le Corbusier: Städtebautheorien (online; hier mit korr. Druckfehlern) : "1922 gründete er gemeinsam mit seinem Vetter Pierre Jeanneret in der Rue de Sevres 35 in Paris ein Architekturatelier [..]. Während dieser Zusammenarbeit entstand die Villa Ozenfat in Paris und das Konzept für die zeitgemässe Stadt für 3 Millionen Einwohner ('Ville Contemporaine'). [..] 1935 unternahm Le Corbusier seine erste Reise in die USA, woraufhin er ein weiterentwickeltes Stadtplanungskonzept mit dem Titel 'La Ville radieuse' veröffentlichte."

Privately printed for the author. 8vo. 8 pp. First Edition. Stiff white wrappers printed in black. This rare booklet was effectively an elaborate Christmas card containing six poems, five of which were later collected by the Hogarth Press in 1936 and similarly titled Work For The Winter. The later book contains changes only to the poem, The River Flows. Inscribed by Julian Bell in a strong hand on the upper inside cover: "To Margaret / From Julian".

"The last time I saw Julian was at Clive's, two days before he went to Spain...I was determined not to think about the risks, because, subconsciously I was sure he would be killed; that is I had a couchant unexpressed certainty, from Thoby's death I think; a legacy of pessimism, which I have decided never to analyze".

        The Star of Seville : A Drama in Three Acts and in Verse.

      Newtown: Gregynog Press: First Limited Edition 1935 - 4to., xii, [2pp.], 108pp., + 2pp. (Limitation leaf & GG colophon leaf). Bembo type on Batchelor special making of GG watermarked hand made paper, text printed in red and black, initial letters in green, arms of Seville on title-page designed by W Charles Thomas, top edges blocked in gilt. Bound in full black Oasis leather, blocked on both covers with a design of Moorish character, composed of interlaced blind strapwork and gold stars. Spine decorated in blind and gilt with strapwork and stars, titling and device in gilt. A fine clean copy in a superb leather binding. LIMITED NUMBERED EDITION of 175 Copies. (Harrop, 32). THE GREGYNOG PRESS was the brainchild of two sisters, Gwendoline and Margaret Davies. It was established in 1922 at their house, Gregynog Hall, in rural mid-Wales. During the next eighteen years the Press gained a reputation for producing limited edition books of the highest order and ranked alongside the leading Private Presses of the day. Between 1922 and 1940, there were four controllers of the Press, Robert Ashwin Maynard, William MacCance, Lord Haberly and James Wardrop, each of whom left his own mark on the works he issued. Among the illustrators were Blair Hughes-Stanton, David Jones, H.W. Bray and Agnes Miller-Parker. Forty two books were published at the Press. Lope de Vega (also Félix Lope de Vega y Carpio or Lope Félix de Vega Carpio) was a Spanish Baroque playwright and poet. His reputation in the world of Spanish letters is second only to that of Cervantes, while the sheer volume of his literary output is unequalled: he is estimated to have written up to 1,500 three-act plays – of which some 425 have survived until the modern day – together with a plethora of shorter dramatic and poetic works.

        The Great War, the publisher's Home Library binding in four volumes with original wrappers

      London: George Newnes Limited, 1935. Hardcover. Very good. Here is a four-volume set of the Home Library issue in previously unknown cellophane and paper wrappers. The Great War is the first illustrated edition of Churchill's history of WWI, The World Crisis. This edition was originally published in 26 magazine format parts in 1933 and 1934. "Magazine format" does not do justice to the publication, which is profusely illustrated on very durable, heavy paper. The publisher subsequently offered two different 3-volume binding options. A final publisher offering in 1935 was this four-volume set produced jointly with The Home Library Book Company. This last binding option is the most elaborate and striking. It features silver, gilt, and blind stamped decoration on marbled red boards with beveled edges, marbled endpapers, and gilt top edges. This binding commands attention on the shelf. What particularly commands our attention about this set - and indeed makes it a minor bibliographic discovery - is the presence of thick, clear visqueen-type jackets with heavy red paper flaps that nicely complement the red marbled endpapers. These jackets give every appearance of being contemporary to the books. The jackets are age-yellowed, quite brittle, and shrunk, with wear and losses at the extremities and a few small other chips - as we would expect given the age and material. The thick, heavy boards have been very slightly warped, consistent with the contraction of the aging jackets over time. The books show minor soiling at the binding extremities where the jackets have receded due to shrinkage, but are notably clean beneath the jackets. Moreover, though we are incapable of chemical analysis to definitively identify the jacket material, the timing for some variation of Cellophane fits, with widespread introduction of cellulose film to the United Kingdom in the 1930s by the British textile company Courtaulds, which was producing a viscose film named viscacelle in 1930 and by 1935 had evolved into British Cellophane. The fact that the jacket material ages very poorly combined with the commanding attractiveness of the bindings beneath would explain why we have not previously seen any such jackets. Undoubtedly, the few unattractive survivors such as these would be likely to be discarded. The books beneath the jackets are in very good condition. The bindings are clean and tight, apart from the previously mentioned minor soiling at the binding extremities and slight warping of the boards caused by the jackets. The contents remain bright and we find no previous ownership marks. Modest spotting appears confined to the prelims and page edges. The fore and bottom edges are a bit soiled. The top edge gilt remains bright, if a bit dusty. In short, this is not the very nicest set we have ever seen, but is the only set we have ever seen thus, bearing the jackets and thus commanding collector attention. Please note that this heavy set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A69.9.d, Woods/ICS A31(dc), Langworth p.118

        Two Bell Ringers. An original drawing with colour wash.

      Self-published. 1935 - Two Bell Ringers. Painted on thick textured buff coloured paper in umber, grey and mauve. This drawing relates to another drawing that we have for sale of a bell ringer. Campbell Dodgson wrote that Austin would do studies in situ and figure studies, incorporating the two together. Although Austin never did a plate of Bell Ringers, he did several plates of Belfries, bells and a Bell ringers Wife (Etching 1934). I think this sketch is a study with possibly a etching of bell ringers in mind, but not completed.There are several pinholes made by the artist for attaching onto board, otherwise in very good condition. There is a Studio stamp on reverse.Image size 370 x 250mmSheet size 485 x 385mm [Attributes: First Edition]

        Seven Pillars Of Wisdom. ( A Triumph)

      London, Jonathan Cape. 1935.. London, Jonathan Cape. 1935., 1935. LIMITED ISSUE of the FIRST EDITION, published for general circulation (originally published privately in 1926). No.486 of 750 copies. Illustrated with three manuscript facsimiles and forty-seven plates including four in colour. Four folding maps. One-quarter pigskin over brown buckram with crossed swords in gilt to front panel, titled in gilt to backstrip, patterned endpapers, top edge gilt. Some minor wear/scuffing to spine ends else a near fine copy, with the accompanying plain paper wrapper (worn). 'Seven Pillars of Wisdom: A Triumph' is the autobiographical account of the experiences of T. E. Lawrence ('Lawrence of Arabia') while serving as a liaison officer with rebel forces during the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Turks of 1916 to 1918. This monumental work had been privately printed in 1922, and a 1926 self-financed subscriber's edition had left Lawrence facing bankruptcy, so author vowed "No further issue of the Seven Pillars will be made in my lifetime". This first trade issue therefore followed in 1935, within weeks of the motorcyle accident that so tragically and prematurely claimed the life of one of the greatest visionary heroes of modern times.

        Taps at Reveille

      New York: Charles Scribners Sons, 1935. First edition, first state, with pages 349-52 uncancelled and with "catch it" reading on page 351. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author, "For Isabel Owens Hoping we'll both be able to look back to this winter as a bleak exception, in a business way from F. Scott ("Old Scrooge") Fitzgerald". Isabel Owens worked full-time as Fitzgerald's Baltimore secretary from 1932-36. She continued part-time in this role until his death in 1940. In addition to her secretarial duties, Owens acted as a foster mother to the Fitzgeralds' daughter Scottie and companion to Zelda. A bright near fine copy with the spine gilt bright in a very good dust jacket with some professional restoration. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A splendid association copy.Taps at Reveille was published in 1935 and is a collection of 18 short stories, the final collection of short stories Fitzgerald published. He chose for inclusion in this volume what he considered his best short stories from the previous decade. The Freshest Boy, Crazy Sunday, and Babylon Revisited are the more popular short stories. Edith Walton reviewed the collection in The New York Times (1935): "Basil Duke Lee [in The Freshest Boy] is a bright, sensitive, likeable boy, constantly betrayed by a fatal tendency to brag and boss. He knows his failing, especially after the minor hell of his first year at boarding school, but again and again he is impelled to ruin an initial good impression…Mr. Fitzgerald is always miraculously adept at describing adolescent love affairs and adolescent swagger." Walton considered Babylon Revisited, however, "probably the most mature and substantial story in the book. A rueful…farewell to the Jazz Age, its setting is Paris and its tone one of anguish for past follies." In 1954, the short story was cinematized by MGM and starred Elizabeth Taylor and Roger Moore's as his Hollywood debut. The Oscar winning title song, by Jerome Kern, featured first in Lady Be Good (1941) but it was popularized by its play in this beloved drama. Film critic Bosley Crowther praised it when she said, "Where Fitzgerald did it in a few words-in a few subtle phrases that evoked a reckless era of golden dissipation toward the end of the Twenties' boom-Richard Brooks…has done it in a nigh two-hour assembly of bistro balderdash and lush, romantic scenes" (Crowther, 1954). Consequently, Taps at Reveille both sheds light on the literary and cinematic climate of the decade and provides insight into some of Fitzgerald's final publications. Fitzgerald dedicated Taps at Reveille to his literary agent Harold Ober, who worked also for writers of Walton's status - J.D. Salinger and William Faulkner.

        Pylon

Housed in a blue cloth folding case. Gilt titles chipped, lightly rubbed at extremities, mark to edge of lower board. A very good copy in the rubbed and chipped jacket. First edition, first printing.

Oxford, Miss, April 29, 1935". Phoebe Omlie was a female aviation pioneer; her husband Vernon taught Faulkner to fly in 1933, and the pair went barnstorming and stunt flying in the Oxford vicinity. The characters of Roger and Laverne Shumann in this novel were modelled on the Omlies. A superb inscription.
