        Gott Adler. Orig.-Radierung auf Bütten.

      30 x 40 cm, 12 x 23 cm, Papier min gebräunt, ein kleiner Stockfleck, sonst tadell. Vom Künstler signiert: August Alois Walla.?- August Walla (1936-2001) wuchs als Einzelkind bei seiner Mutter und Großmutter auf. Bis zu seinem neunten Lebensjahr zeigte er eine normale Entwicklung. Er kam in die Sonderschule. Danach konnte kein Lehr- oder Arbeitsplatz für ihn gefunden werden. Mit 16 Jahren kam er erstmals in stationäre psychiatrische Behandlung, in der er bis zu seinem 20. Jahr verblieb. 16 Jahre später, als seine Mutter erkrankte, kam er wieder in die Psychiatrie.Walla arbeitete bereits sehr früh künstlerisch - als Zeichner, Maler und Photograph. In seiner Kunst vereinnahmte er seine Umgebung, indem er auf Gegenständen (auch an Häusern oder Bäumen) erfundene und existierende Symbole, sowie götterähnliche Wesen malte. Figuren und Symbole finden sich in allen seinen Werken. Er schuf damit einen abgeschlossenen künstlerischen Kosmos. August Walla lebte seit 1983 im Haus der Künstler in Maria Gugging und war einer der vielseitigsten Künstler der sogenannten Art Brut.Die renommierte deutsche Punkband EA80 bezieht sich im Stück Gugging ihres 1992 erschienenen Albums "Schauspiele" auf Wallas Schaffen.

        Liquid-Propellant Rocket Development (with 11 plates).

      Washington, The Smithsonian Institution, 1936. 8vo. In recent red full cloth with gilt lettering to front board. Published as part of "Smithsonian Miscellaneous Collections, Volume 95, Number 3, Publication 3381". A fine and clean copy. (2), 10 pp. + 11 photographic plates. ¶ First edition of Goddard's paper on liquid-fueled rocket development. Goddard is credited with creating and building the world's first liquid-fueled rocket and is often referred to as the man who ushered in the Space Age (Pendray, Rocket Development). By temperament and training Goddard was not a team worker, yet he laid the foundation from which team workers could launch men to the moon" (DSB). Goddard was secretive about his research and only published two papers; "A Method of Reaching Extreme Altitudes" (1919) and the present. Goddard launched the first liquid-fuel rocket on 16 March 1926 near Auburn, Mass. The ten-foot rocket, nicknamed "Nell" reached an altitude of 41 feet, traveled a distance of 184 feet and landed 2.5 seconds after lift-off in a cabbage patch. "Although his list of firsts in rocketry was distuguished, Goddard was eventually surpassed by teams of rocket research and development experts elsewhere, particularly in Germany." (DSB)."Like the Russian hero Konstantin Tsiolkovsky and the German pioneer Hermann Oberth, Goddard worked out the theory of rocket propulsion independently [...] Having explored the mathematical practicality of rocketry since 1906 and the experimental workability of reaction engines in laboratory vacuum tests since 1912, Goddard began to accumulate ideas for probing beyond the Earth's stratosphere. His first two patents in 1914, for a liquid-fuel gun rocket and a multistage step rocket, let to some modest recognition and financial support from the Smithsonian Institution [...] With an eye toward patentability of demonstrated systems and with the aid of no more than a handful of technicians, Goddard achieved a series of workable liquid-fuel flights starting in 1926. Through the patronage of Charles A. Lindbergh, the Daniel and Florence Guggenheim Foundation, and the Carnegie and Smithsonian institutions, the Goddards and their small staff were able to move near Roswell, New Mexico. There, during most of the 1930s, Goddard demonstrated, despite many failures in his systematic static and flight tests, progressively more sophisticated experimental boosters and payloads, reaching speeds of 700 miles per hour and altitudes above 8000 feet in several test flights" (DSB).

        Little Tim and the Brave Sea Captain (IN VERY GOOD ORIGINAL DUST JACKET)

      Oxford University Press, New York 1936 - States "Copyright, 1936, by Oxford University Press, New York, Inc. / Lithographed in the U.S.A." no later dates. However, original price sticker to bottom of jacket front flap states "8/6 net." Why this U.S. edition would have been initially sold in England, when there was reportedly a separate U.K. edition, we do not know. Boards of the book, having been constantly protected by the original jacket, remain bright and handsome. Spine has some "give," but internal hinges are lovely, so we have not attempted any strengthening. The first book both written and illustrated by Ardizzone (though at this point he had been illustrating adult titles for seven years, starting with Sheridan LeFanu's "In a Glass Darkly," 1929.) How the "brave captain" comes to allow his vessel to strike a rock in sight of land when a storm brews up, instead of taking her out where there's some sea room, is further not made clear, though children's books tend to have their own logic, after all. No internal markings or problems; we simply don't judge the binding of this volume tight enough to merit a grade of "very good." Unpaginated but 30 pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Le Spectacle Est Dans La Rue (The Poster Art of A.M. Cassandre)

      Paris: Draeger Freres, 1936. Original wraps. Very Good. A very solid copy of this lovely 1936 promotional album, showcasing the incomparable poster art of A.M. Cassandre (1901-1968), "which expressed his insights into the role that motion and scale in urban environments played in modern design". Published by Draeger Freres of Paris, the 15 sumptuous, full-page reproductions (4 of which are in lavish, vivid color) have been beautifully executed and seem to pop off the pages. The album is tight and VG in its spiral-bound, stiff cardboard wrappers, with light scuffing to the panels and a small amount of light staining at the front panel's lower-edge. Still though, attractive and very presentable. And internally, sharp as could be, with just a touch of wear to the pastedowns but with no markings of any kind to the plates. Tall quarto, Preface by the formidable Blaise Cendrars.

        A group of 3 Autograph Letters Signed and 1 Typed Letter Signed ("Eric Gill"), to Dr. A.C. Jordan about giving a prize of his "Clothes," and regarding a party given by the Men's Dress Reform Party

      Pigotts, North Dean, High Wycombe 1936 - 1 p. each, annotations in another hand at bottom of one. 8vo. To the secretary of the Men's Dress Reform Party. Three letters to Dr. Alfred Charles Jordan (1872-1956), British radiologist, co-founder of the New Heath Society, and Honorary Secretary of the Men's Dress Reform Party. In the letter of June 9, Gill agrees to present a copy of his book, Clothes (1931), at the upcoming revel of the MDRP, and says he's asked his publisher Cape to send a copy for him to autograph. In the letter of June 17, he encloses the book and thanks Jordan for tickets to the event, saying he will "certainly come . unless run over or in jug." In the letter of July 2, he writes, "I did enjoy the evening at Suffolk St. very much. But I was sorry so many of the men were merely in 'fancy' dress." He also accepts Jordan's invitation to have his name added to the organization's permanent committee. Accompanying the group is a Typed Letter Signed of Gill, dated May 13, 1936, in which Gill requests four issues of the MDRP publication. The subtitle of Gill's "Clothes," is "An essay upon the nature and significance of the natural and artificial integuments worn by men and women." In it Gill presents many ideas on dress reform for both men and women, among which was his advocacy the skirt or tunic by both men and women, a style that Gill himself adopted.The Men's Dress Reform Party was active from 1929-1940, and grew out of discussions within the Clothing Subcommittee of the New Health Society, which had been co-founded by Dr. Jordan in 1925. (For a history of the MDRP, including Dr. Jordan's role in it, see Barbara Burman, "Better and Brighter Clothes," Journal of Design History, Vol. 8, No. 4 (1995), pp. 275-290).

        Bulletin hebdomadaire de Police Criminelle [Reliure des n° 1472 à 1488, janvier à avril 1936]

      Police Criminelle 1936 - Fort volume en reliure toilée réunissant les n° 1472 (6 janvier 1936) à 1488 (27 avril 1936) du Bulletin hebdomadaire de Police Criminelle. Ensemble d'environ 640pp. [les bulletins font de 35 à 50pp. chacun]. Une étiquette imprimée avec les références collée au dos. La reliure est très usagée, les bulletins en bon état. Nombreuses annotations. Rarissime documentation d'archives policières. Ces bulletins étaient évidemment à usage professionnel et interne. L'anthropométrie triomphait dans la lutte contre le crime. Toute une vision morale se révèle dans cette littérature administrative : « cette femme pourrait se livrer à la prostitution », « les susnommés circulent dans une roulotte peinte en vert » (à propos de forains inculpés pour chasse sans permis). Les signes particuliers sont l'objet de descriptions minutieuses : « jambe droite atrophiée, le genou et le pied sont tournés en dedans ce qui le fait boiter droitement ; il lui manque la première phalange de l'index de la main droite », « marche en dandinant, obèse, voix très forte », « porte sur les avant-bras 2 tatouages représentant sur l'un une baigneuse, sur l'autre 2 têtes d'enfant », « marque de variole sur la figure, atteint de rhumatismes aux jambes qui lui rendent la marche difficile et le feraient presque boiter de la jambe gauche ». Parmi les multiples condamnations relevées, on note « 1 an de prison et 200 francs d'amande, pour provocation de militaires à la désobéissance dans un but de propagande anarchiste et de provocation directe au crime de meurtre ». Dans les demandes de recherches : une femme « se prétendant ancienne infirmière et portant décorations apparentes, dont le ruban de la Légion d'honneur, [qui] se présente dans les magasins et y passe commande de marchandises, payables par traites acceptées, mais livrables dans une gare. » ; « une femme surnommée la Négresse à cause de son teint brun » Chaque n° comprend une table alphabétique des individus répertoriés ; de nombreuses pages d'individus recherchés, avec leur description anthropométrique et une ou deux photos, leur date et lieu de naissance, parfois le motif de la recherche, des renseignements pour identification ; des demandes de recherches ; des listes de bijoux et objets volés (parfois avec photos) ; des avis de cessations de recherches ; la table alphabétique des individus compris au B.P.C. Ce bulletin était adressé gratuitement à Messieurs les procureurs généraux, Procureurs de la République, Juges d'instruction, Commissaires de Police, Commandants de Brigades de gendarmerie, Directeurs de Maisons centrales, Surveillants-Chefs de Maison d'arrêt, en Algérie et en Tunisie. Cette reliure a appartenu au Commissariat général de la ville d'Orléans, qui y apposa son tampon en première page de chaque bulletin. (SW) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
