        Die Volks-Illustrierte, Jahrgang 1937.

      52 issues in 1 binding (complete run for the year 1937), Prag/Praha/Prague 1937. Folio (37,5x26,5 cm). Contemporary brown half-calf bindning. Clip in frontpage of issue 5, (1 leaf = 2 pages) missing in no. 14; frontpage to no. 37 missing; 2 pages missing in no. 43; frontpage of no. 43 missing. 1 sheet loosened. With 29 (of 32) full-page photomontages by John Heartfield. Well-preserved copy.. Scarce. The weekly German-language left-wing paper Die Volks-Illustrierte was the exiled continuation of the German Socialist publication AIZ (Arbeiter Illustrierte Zeitung). For obvious reasons, the editorial staff fled to Prague in the early spring of 1933 and continued the publication under a new name and with much lesser print run. The 1937 annual highly reflects the civil war in Spain and the Japanese atrocities in China. The Nazi rule in Germany dominates the contents, off course; and the Czech authorities were regularly confronted with an official German demand of taking action against the paper. ** The 1937 annual contains a range of outstanding anti-Nazi photomontages by John Heartfield, among others "Blut für Eisen", "Der friedfertige Raubfisch", "Tod dem Kriegspolypen!", "Ob Nazimann, ob Samurai, es ist dieselbe Melodei" and the almost prophetic vision "Mahnung".*** John Heartfield (1891-1968) was born as Helmut Herzfeld and changed his name during WWI in reaction to the Anglofobia of wartime Germany. He became a leading figure in Dada movement but got his everlasting reputation through his left-wing, anti-Nazi photomontages

        Micky Maus Zeitung. - Nummer 15.

      Folio. 8 S. (Seiten 113 bis 120). Mit zahlr. Illustrationen u.a. von Walt Disney. Farbig illustrierte Orig.-Umschläge(rechte obere Ecke mit kl. Knickspur u. kl. Tintenfleck, durchgehende Knickspur in Längs- u. Quer-Richtung)., Zeitschrift Nummer 15 dieser frühen deutschen "Micky Maus Publikation", übersetzt aus dem Englischen von Martha Ehrat-Bollmann. Der Zürcher Verlag Bollmann erwarb 1936, wohl um über die allgemeine Wirtschaftskrise hiwegzukommen gleichzeitig in Paris beim europäischen Vertreter des Disney-Verlages die Hauptlizenz und in Italien bei Mondadori, der damals die Comics unter dem Namen "Topolino" in italienischer Sprache veröffentlichte, die Unterlizenzen, diese viel zu teuer trugen zum Misserfolg der Reihe "Micky-Maus-Wunderbücher" bei. Der Preis der Bände bis zu sieben Schweizer Franken war während der allgemeinen Krise viel zu hoch und die finanzielle Situation konnte auch mit der halbmonatlichen Herausgabe der vorliegenden Zeitschrift, die zwischen 25 und 30 Rappen zu haben war, nicht verbessert werden. Die Produktion wurde nach dem 18. Heft und dem 7. Buch eingestellt, nachdem der Verlag erfolglos in Deutschland und Österreich nach Partnern gesucht hatte. Im Nazideutschland war die Publikation dieses amerikanischen Imports unerwünscht, obwohl Joseph Goebbels dem Führer 1937 18 Micky-Maus-Filme zu Weihnachten geschenkt haben soll und "sie insgeheim Spass an den Zeichentrickfilmen von Walt Disney hatten" (Laqua, Carsten: Wie Micky unter die Nazis fiel. Rowohlt, 1992). Gefaltetes Exemplar, sons wohl erhalten. Résumé: Early Micky Mouse in German printed in Switzerland. - Folded copy, otherwise in a good condition.
