        Bauernkrieg. Orig.-Lithographie auf Lithopapier.

      Zürich, Fretz 1937 - 58 x 45 cm, Min knickspurig, tadell. Im Stein monogram. u. datiert. [Laut Auskunft des Baumberger- Spezialisten Arnold Erni handelt es sich eigentlich um Zinkographien die sich von Lithographien fast nicht unterscheiden lassen. Die Auflagen waren in jedem Fall gering vielleicht 20 Stück]- Baumberger, Otto (1889 - 1961). Grafiker, Bühnenbildner, Maler, Zeichner und Illustrator. Vertreter des Schweizerischen Expressionismus. Erneuerer der Plakatkunst. Professor an der ETH Zürich. Nach den üblichen Schulen und einer Jugend in kleinbürgerlichen Verhältnissen in Zürich-Altstetten bricht Otto Baumberger eine Textilzeichnerlehre und Ausbildung zum Lithografen in einem Zürcher Handwerksbetrieb vorzeitig ab. 1908?1911 Studienaufenthalte in München an der Staatlichen Kunstgewerbeschule und Königl.-Bayerischen Akademie für Bildende Künste, anschliessend in Berlin, London und Paris, wo er die Akademien Colarossi und Grande Chaumière besucht. 1910 erste Teilnahme an einer Ausstellung der Zürcher Kunstgesellschaft. 1911 Lithograf an der Grafischen Anstalt J. E. Wolfensberger, Zürich. 1912 Heirat mit Hanni Manz, 1918 Geburt der Tochter Gertrud, im selben Jahr Trennung. 1913 erneute Reise nach Paris, Auseinandersetzung mit Expressionismus und Kubismus. Nach Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkriegs Rückkehr in die Schweiz. 1920 Reise nach Berlin, durch Empfehlung von Max Reinhardt Engagement als Bühnenbildner am Deutschen Theater (1920 Urfaust, Regie Max Reinhardt); eine Daueranstellung schlägt Baumberger aus. 1922 Hilfslehrer an der Kunstgewerbeschule Zürich. In der Folge breites Betätigungsfeld: intensive Plakatproduktion für verschiedene Kunden, Buchillustrationen, Briefmarken, Wandmalereien, Mitarbeiter beim Nebelspalter und am Zürcher Stadttheater, wo er unter anderem 1923 die Bühnenbilder für Hoffmanns Erzählungen von Jacques Offenbach sowie 1933 für Lohengrin von Richard Wagner baut. 1927 Heirat mit der Grafikerin Johanna Pulver, 1929 Geburt von Sohn Rudolf Caspar. 1929 erneute Reise nach Paris zusammen mit Oscar Lüthy und Walter Kern, Auseinandersetzung mit der abstrakten Malerei. Auf Anregung von Otto Salvisberg erhält Baumberger 1932 einen Lehrauftrag an der Architektur-Abteilung der ETH Zürich für das neue Fach Beziehung der Farbe zu Bau und Raum und wird 1947 zum ausserordentlichen Professor ernannt. Ab 1935 intensive Auseinandersetzung mit der Anthroposophie. Mitarbeit an der Schweizerischen Landesausstellung 1939 in Zürich: Wandbild mit Darstellungen aus der Schweizer Geschichte in der Abteilung Heimat und Volk sowie Bilder in der blauen Ehrenhalle. Ab 1943 neben grossen Erfolgen als Plakatgestalter vermehrt Auseinandersetzung mit christlichen Themen sowie der Weltliteratur (Faust, Divina Commedia, Don Quijote, Simplicius Simplicissimus, Ulenspiegel, Wilhelm Tell, Grimms Märchen) in Illustrationen und Malerei. 1949 Ausstellung zum 60. Geburtstag im Kunsthaus Zürich, die alle Sparten seines Schaffens vereint. 1959 Ausstellung in der Graphischen Sammlung der ETH. Im Alter von 72 Jahren stirbt Otto Baumberger in seinem Heim in Weiningen.Werkwürdigung:Die Wertschätzung, die dem Grafiker, vor allem dem Plakatgestalter, Otto Baumberger entgegengebracht wird, hat sein malerisches Schaffen in den Hintergrund gedrängt. In beiden Disziplinen lässt sich keine geradlinige Entwicklung feststellen; ein Nebeneinander von verschiedenen Stilen ist für Baumbergers Werk kennzeichnend. Dies hat die Literatur zum Teil als Problem, zum Teil aber auch als Ausdruck von grossem handwerklichen Können beurteilt. Zu Beginn seiner künstlerischen Arbeit ist Baumberger in erster Linie dem Expressionismus verpflichtet. In den grafischen Blättern mit gesellschaftskritischen Themen nähert er sich inhaltlich wie stilistisch George Grosz und Otto Dix an. Zusammen mit Fritz Pauli, Otto Morach, Hermann Huber und Ignaz Epper gehört Baumberger zu den wichtigsten Vertretern des Expressionismus in der Schweiz. Baumbergers Grafik und Plakate stehen ab 1910 hauptsächlich in der Trad [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Sino-Japanese Hostilities 1937

      Shanghai: Ah Fong Photography, [1937] - Vintage Photographs of the Bombing of SHANGHAI (Sino-Japanese War).  AH FONG:  The Sino-Japanese Hostilities 1937. Shanghai.    Photo by Ah Fong, 819 Nanking Road, Shanghai, [1937].     Album of 110 original gelatin silver prints, two in a panoramic format (2 x 7-1/2 inches, 4.7 x 19 cm), the remainder 2-1/4 x 3-1/2 inches (5.5 x 8.3 cm), a few titled in the negative, five images (including one panorama) toned red to represent Chapei district burning at night, all prints numbered on mounts according to a printed index with captions tipped in at front.  Oblong 8vo, [47] pp. with tissue guards between facing images; black paper boards with black cord tie (corners a litlte rubbed), the upper cover stamped in silver illustrating a city skyline ravaged by Japanese aircraft dropping bombs and tanks crashing into buildings, with a warship seen in the far background. Following the Mukden (or Manchurian) Incident in September 1931 when the Japanese invaded the north-eastern part of China, a boycott was declared on all Japanese products.  The Japanese responded with the landing of 70,000 troops in Shanghai in January 1932.  Following years of skirmishes and localized incidents, full-scale war broke out in August 1937.  By October the Japanese claimed major victories after heavy fighting, their army being better equipped, supported by naval and aerial bombardment. This detailed record includes evocative images of the Royal Navy, United States, Russian, Japanese and Italian warships; General Chiang Kai-shek and Yeng Jei Ih; refugees fleeing from the ruins of Pei Sing Tsin village; victims and destruction caused by the Cathay Hotel bombing; bomb victims receiving first aid; and the bombing of the Tsun Tsin Training Camp.  The commercial photographer Ah Fong had studios in Shanghai and Weihai. Assembled albums still complete and intact are believed to be quite rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Admiral Togo, A Memoir

      Tokyo: Togo Gensui Publishing Society, 1937. Hardcover. Very Good Plus/Very Good Plus. 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. 432 p. Marshall-Admiral Marquis Togo Heihachiro (1848-1934) was a gensui (or admiral) of the fleet in the Imperial Japanese Navy and one of Japan's greatest naval heroes. He was termed by Western journalists as "the Nelson of the East", after Horatio Nelson, the British admiral who defeated the French and Spanish at Trafalgar. Born into a samurai family, Togo enrolled in the Japanese navy at the age of 16; he subsequently studied naval science in England for seven years, during which time he circumnagivated the world, returning to Japan in 1878. Serving again in the Imperial Japanese Navy, he rose to fame through skill and daring, eventually earning honors never bestowed on anyone outside of the Imperial family. It is interesting that he kept his journals in English, and was made a Member of the British Order of Merit by King Edward VII in 1906. Published three years after his death, this book is an homage to Togo by artists, politicians and even the Imperial family, both from Japan as well as other countries. ***DESCRIPTION: Silver and black marbled paper boards with gilt decorations and lettering on front, back, and spine; title on the cover of the book is "Admiral Togo, The Hero of the World, A Memoir", top edge gilt, plain endpapers, tissue guard over title page.

Yanagisawa; a Foreword by Dr. Kazutoshi Uyeda; the Table of Contents (where pagination begins); followed by 347 pages of text about his life including a Chronological Sketch and a final section of eulogies by the Emperor and notables both at home and abroad. Final page is a colophon that states this is "A Revised and Enlarged Edition" published on April 1, 1937. Pagination: (i-lxxx), 1-4, 1-347, (348).

"Per l'Almanacco antiLetterario del 1937, Bruno Munari curò il montaggio fotografico dell'inserto intitolato "Udite! Udite!", composto da didascalie tratte da frasi di Mussolini inserite dentro pagine bucate "a cannocchiale" e puntate sul volto del Duce, così che non si perdesse mai di vista durante la lettura il "fiero" profilo dell'oratore. Munari spiegò come in quella trovata grafica vi fosse una velata ironia: la retorica del discorso mussoliniano veniva per lo meno depotenziata, se non implicitamente irrisa, da quel contesto grafico."

A Biography: "Despite his self-enforced isolation, McKay never lacked friends in Harlem, and after completing A Long Way from Home, he began to be more actively involved in the social and intellectual life of the Harlem community. In February his reemergence received a big boost with the appearance of A Long Way from Home. On May 4, 1937, Lee Furman hosted a reception and dinner for McKay at Sardi's for which invitations were extended to many of McKay's friends and acquaintances in Harlem and New York literary circles. After all he had experienced since his return to the United States, his dinner at Sardi's must have been for McKay a sweet triumph. He had dedicated A Long Way from Home 'To My Friends Everywhere', and truly, despite his occasional outbursts of ill-temper and spite, he did appreciate them. They had, he realized, had made it possible for him to continue his literary career."Provenance: from the files of publisher Lee Furman / Sheridan House. An important copy.
