        Clipperfregatschip met hulpstoomvermogen "Utrecht", kapitein A. Hoogenstraten.London, William Foster, 1869. Double-tinted lithograph, finished in colour (ca. 48 x 66.5 cm) in a passepartout and framed (ca. 67.5 x 88.5 cm).

      Archibald, Dictionary of sea painters of Europe and America, p. 149; Holdsworth, Mail and passenger steamships of the nineteenth century, pp. 288-289; The Lloyd mail VII (1937), p. 509; Maritiemdigitaal (1 copy). Rare portrait of the ship Utrecht, a full-rigged clipper with auxiliary power and screw propellers, built in 1868 for the firm of Van Zeylen & Decker in Rotterdam and capable of carrying 2009 tons. During the subsequent years, the ship made several voyages between Rotterdam and Batavia (Jakarta) and Semarang, carrying passengers and goods. Although the ship was equipped with an auxiliary steam engine, this system proved a failure and was removed in 1870-1871. After being sold to the firm of Voorhoeve & Jelier in Rotterdam, the ship sailed between Rotterdam, The United Kingdom, Ireland, the Dutch East Indies and San Francisco. The ship was sold in 1888 to the firm of C.M. Matzen in Hamburg and afterwards possibly to a firm in Norway.The British lithographer Thomas Goldsworth Dutton was "not only the finest 19th century lithographer of shipping scenes and ship portraits but happily the most prolific" (Archibald). During his career he produced numerous portraits of ships, including mercantile vessels of international companies, a large number of war ships of the Royal Navy and several yachts, as well as naval actions during the Crimean War.In fine condition, with only a few spots.

        The South Wales Borderers 24th Foot 1689-1937

      Solid original 1937 volume in full green leather binding with gold motifs plus XXIV in a garland. This is a splendid book with no expense spared in its production.  It shows very little sign of wear.   Endpapers are (front) map showing the war services of the regiment, and (rear) chart showing movements of the regiment.Wonderful illustrations, on a variety of papers using different techniques,  some in colour, including the arms of sir Edward Dering, and original etchings with tissue guards  including a frontis of Sir Edward Dering, image of Daniel Dering, the Prince of Wales,  and of the Zulu War Colours of 1892. The Colours of the regiment are printed in full colour including silver and there are many other colour reproductions and black and white photos, a splendid colour reproduction of a map drawn by Capt Symons in 1879 of Isandhlwana, and reproduction map of Rorke's Drift, double spread calligraphed roll of officers and non com officers at Rourke's Drift, and many black and white text illustrations.   In pencil on the front free endpaper is "MBS Stratton Audley, Nov 1937" in pencil, with a smudge at the bottom.  Intro by Maj Gen Morgan Owen.  2 Appendices, roll of officers and war memorials.   Flaws: although the binding is generally excellent, the back board is faded and marked in a pattern of stripes, as it appears to have been leaned against something in its lifetime and there is also very slight wear to the corners and a small amount of fading and wear to the top of the spine.   Some scattered light foxing.  A Daily Telegraph article of 1994 which mentions the regiment, has been tipped in with two dabs of glue.   Very heavy book which will need to be sent insured, so postage overseas will need to take account of this and extra charges will be incurred for overseas purchasers.

       Wieland Wagner - Parsifal Bühnenbilder 1937 --- Mappe mit 6 Blättern Verlag, Ort und Erscheinungsjahr sind nicht angegeben. Daher weiß ich weder, wann bzw. wo diese Mappe erschienen ist, noch ob sie so wie sie mir vorliegt und ich sie hier anbiete, vollständig ist. In der Mappe befinden sich 6 Blatt. Das Außenmaß und die Blattgrößen (mit Rand) sind: 50x37 cm. Die Bildgrößen haben unterschiedliche Formate: 36x23cm bzw. 32x30cm oder ähnliche Maße. Die Mappe hat Gebrauchsspuren, aber die einzelnen Blätter befinden sich in gutem Zustand, mit einer kleinen Einschränkung: manche Ecken sind ca. 1 cm vom Blatt abgetrennt. Als Beispiel habe ich hier 2 solcher Ecken photographiert, damit man sich eine genauere Vorstellung machen kann. Ich möchte die Mappe nur sehr ungern in den VERSAND geben. Abholung (Kassel) wäre mir erheblich lieber. Bei Abholung könnte man auch, falls gewünscht, über den Preis verhandeln.

        Kurt Schwitters Catalogue raisonné Band 3 1937-1948 / Volume 3 1937-1948 (Gebundene Ausgabe) von Karin Orchard (Autor), Isabel Schulz (Autor)

      Hier: Band III 1937-1948 / Volume III 1937-1948: Nach mehrjähriger, intensiver Forschungstätigkeit jetzt komplett: der Catalogue raisonné zu Kurt Schwitters' Oeuvre in drei Bänden mit einem Gesamtumfang von über 2 000 Seiten und mehr als 3 300 Abbildungen.Obwohl Kurt Schwitters zu den bedeutendsten Künstlern der internationalen Moderne zählt, ist sein vielseitiges bildnerisches Oeuvre nur partiell erschlossen. Erstmalig wird nun in einem dreibändigen Werkverzeichnis sein Gesamtschaffen dokumentiert und gewürdigt. Nach weltweiten Recherchen und der vollständigen Aufarbeitung des künstlerischen Nachlasses, können jetzt rund 4 000 Werke aus dem Zeitraum von 1905 bis 1948 vorgestellt werden, darunter zahlreiche bislang unveröffentlichte Bilder und Zeichnungen. Schwitters' Arbeiten werden chronologisch und innerhalb eines Jahres nach Gattungen geordnet. Jedes Werk wird schwarzweiß abgebildet, verschollene und zerstörte Arbeiten werden dokumentiert. Darüber hinaus werden rund 120 repräsentative Werke ganzseitig in Farbe präsentiert. Der umfangreichste dritte Band, der die Jahre 1937 bis 1948 umfasst, beinhaltet jene Werke, die in der Zeit des Exils zunächst in Norwegen und ab 1940 in England entstanden. Farbig gefasste Plastiken sowie Collagen und Assemblagen, deren Materialvielfalt um Fundstücke aus der Natur bereichert ist, führen das frühe Merzkonzept fort. Darüber hinaus werden die zwei Merzbauten Haus am Bakken und Merz Barn, die weniger bekannten norwegischen Landschaftsbilder und Zeichnungen sowie die Porträts aus der englischen Internierungszeit vorgestellt. Zum Künstler: Kurt Schwitters (Hannover 1887-1948 Kendal, Lake District). Studium an der Kunstgewerbeschule Hannover und an der Königlich Sächsischen Akademie der Künste Dresden. 1911 erste Ausstellungsbeteiligung. 1919 erstes Merzbild und Veröffentlichung des Gedichts An Anna Blume. Seit 1923 Arbeiten am Merzbau, Erscheinen der Publikationsreihe Merz. 1937 Diffamierung seiner Werke, Emigration nach Norwegen. 1940 Flucht nach England. 1943 Zerstörung des Hauses und des Merzbaus durch Luftangriff. Although Kurt Schwitters was one of the most influential artists of international modernism, only select portions of his immensely varied body of pictorial work have been investigated thoroughly. And what a body of work it is, unlike one ever seen before or after, combining bits of found detritus into compositions of tight, unexpected melodies and startling tunes. Schwitters was constantly sighting scraps of handbills, train tickets, newspapers, clothing, and more on the city streets, pocketing them for later use in one of his Merz collages. His intense body of found object constructions stands as one of the premier examples of the ultimtate modern form, assemblage, of which he has been called the "grandfather." After extensive research worldwide and a complete examination of his artistic estate, Schwitters's oeuvre has finally been properly acknowledged, documented, and prepared for public presentation. The comprehensive Kurt Schwitters Catalogue Raisonna, of which the present volume is the third installation, includes more than four thousand works from the period between 1905 and 1948, many of them published for the first time. Lost and destroyed works are documented whenever possible. For ease of reference, the survey is ordered chronologically within each year, works are sub-divided according to genre. In this third volume are presented creations spanning Schwitters's years in exile, 1937 to 1948, when he escaped Nazi Germany to live first in Norway and then in England. Though artworks are primarily reproduced in black-and-white, each volume of the catalogue also presents color reproductions of representative works Zusatzinfo 1312 Abb., davon 119 farbig Sprache englisch deutsch Maße 265 x 308 mm Gewicht 4830 g Einbandart Leinen Kunst Musik Theater Kunstgeschichte Kunststile catalogue raisonne catalogue raisonné classical modern art Dada Sachbücher Kunst Literatur Bildende Kunst Sachbücher Künstler Literatur Bildende Kunst Klassische Moderne Schwitters, Kurt Schwitters, Kurt Werkverzeichnis Werkverzeichnisse ISBN-10 3-7757-0989-4 / 3775709894 ISBN-13 978-3-7757-0989-7 / 9783775709897 Kurt Schwitters Catalogue raisonné Band 3 1937-1948/ Volume 3 1937-1948 (Gebundene Ausgabe) von Karin Orchard (Autor), Isabel Schulz (Autor)

        Of Mice and Men [First Issue]

      New York: Covici-Friede, 1937. First Edition. Hardcover. First Printing, First Issue, with "and only moved because the heavy hands were pendula," lines 20-21, p. 9, and bullet between the eight's on p. 88, one of only 2500 copies (in subsequent printings, the nine words on p. 9 and the bullet between the eight's were removed and the entire page reset). Chosen as a Book-of-the-Month Club selection, accounting for the many copies now on the market in clipped "unpriced" dust jackets masquerading as the genuine article. Small 8vo: 186pp. Publisher's beige cloth, spine and upper cover lettered within orange title block between thick black rules, top edge stained blue, pictorial dust jacket printed in black and priced $2.00. A spectacular copy, square, tight, clean, unmarked and probably unread, marred only by fading of blue top-stain; about Fine jacket, completely free of tears and edge wear, but spine panel lightly sunned (black lettering and design undiminished). Truly, one for the vaults. Goldstone-Payne A7a. "Of Mice and Men (the title is drawn from Robert Burns's poem “To A Mouse”: “The best laid schemes o' mice and men / Gang aft a-gley / An' leave us naught but grief an' pain / For promised joy”) marks a deliberate change from Steinbeck's previous work, In Dubious Battle (1936). In this new project, Steinbeck chose to work within a narrower framework . . . concentrat[ing] on a small number of characters as Steinbeck tells the story of migrant ranch laborers in carefully detailed settings. . . . From the very beginning, not only are readers given a call to social reform (the plight of the migrant worker is bleak and unlikely to change), but they also see that such men possess an American dream shared by all levels of society. Even though George and Lennie are different in size, although one is mentally sharp and the other retarded, they both have their dream of ownership and independence." (The Literary Encyclopedia) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Case of the Palestine Arab

      1937. First Edition . BECK, Frank H. The Case of the Palestine Arab. [London]: (W. & J. Rounge, 1937). Slim octavo, staple-bound as issued, original blue-gray paper wrappers respined and reinforced; pp. 28. $1500.First edition of this compelling work written a decade before Israeli statehood arguing that the British government had an obligation to be loyal to the Palestinian Arab community.Written right before the outbreak of World War II, this concise and forceful work enumerated the reasons why Britain should have placed its support behind the Arab nations and, specifically, the Palestinians. It attempted to show the economic and social disadvantages of the Palestinian population in a region that was being subjected to heavy Jewish immigration (particularly following the new racial policies in Europe). Beck objected to the justifications underlying Zionism and asserted that Britain had showed favoritism and excessive leniency toward the Jewish community. He argued that Palestinian Jews and Jewish immigrants to Palestine were overtaking the Palestinian population economically and turning the Palestinians into “half-serfs,” a situation he predicted would eventually result in catastrophe. Thus, Beck stated, the only choice was to uphold the original promises Lawrence had made to the Arab community and to stop becoming mired in the mess of Balfour, the White Paper, and the promises made to the Jewish community. A few tiny spots of soiling to interior, a bit of toning and soiling to extremities of wrappers and paper reinforcement. A very good copy.

        Führer durch die Ausstellung Entartete Kunst

      Cover title: Entartete "Kunst" : Ausstellungsführer. [=Degenerate Art : exhibition guide]. Berlin : Verlag für Kultur- und Wirtschaftswerbung, [1937]. First edition, first printing, with the original text on page 21 and page 29 which was subsequently altered by Göring. Royal octavo, original pictorial wrappers (some mild creasing, short split at head of spine), staple bound, pp 30, [2], illustrated with black and white plates, internally clean and sound. Text in German, in Fraktur. "Die Ausstellung wurde zusammengestellt von der Reichspropagandaleitung, Amtsleitung Kultur. Sie wird in den größeren Städten aller Gaue gezeigt werden. Verantwortlich für den Inhalt:: Fritz Kaiser, München." A rare original copy of the first version of the exhibition guide published to accompany the Nazi Party's infamous Degenerate Art exhibition, which opened at the Haus der Kunst, München, in July 1937. The exhibition featured 650 works of art confiscated from 32 German museums. The term "Degenerate art" was applied to any work which did not conform to the NSDAP's ideals of artistic taste and beauty, which essentially meant any work by Expressionists, Impressionists, Dadaists, Surrealists, Cubists or Fauves. Works by artists such as George Grosz, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Max Ernst and Paul Klee were included in the exhibition, where they were ridiculed as examples of sick, Jewish-Bolshevik art. The text alterations demanded byGöring concerned page 21: originally, as here, "Drei Kostproben von jüdischer Plastik und Malerei ... die Juden heißen: Meidner, Freundlich und Haizmann", but changed in the second printing to "Drei Kostproben entarteter Plastik und Malerei ... Die Titel lauten: Selbstbildnis des Juden Meidner ... Kopf von Haizmann"; and page 29, originally "das Judengeschöpf wiegt ...", changed in the second printing to "das Machwerk wiegt ...". The present copy's pagination also differs from the standard 30 pages: it has two unnumbered pages with illustrations after page 30. Copies are recorded in two Australian collections (University of Melbourne Library; Art Gallery of New South Wales Research Library).

Accompanied by the scarce 'Awarded the HAWTHORNDEN PRIZE' wraparound band which is complete and is in near Fine condition with a little darkening to the folds. The wrapper and band look very attractive in the removable Brodart archival cover. The first time we have encountered the scarce wraparound band. The author's first book and most celebrated work, which takes the form of an epic prose poem set in the first world war, based on the author's own experiences in the trenches. It was ten years in the making and was eventually helped to publication by T.S. Eliot, who hailed the book as "a work of genius". It won the 1938 Hawthornden prize. "This work of a poet-painter has its every word chiselled out of experience, and it is probably the World War I monument most likely to survive." - Stephen Spender (review in the NY Times). 1500 copies printed. A title that is increasingly difficult to find in collectible condition. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.

        Clipperfregatschip met hulpstoomvermogen "Utrecht", kapitein A. Hoogenstraten.London, William Foster, 1869. Double-tinted lithograph, finished in colour (ca. 48 x 66.5 cm) in a passepartout and framed (ca. 67.5 x 88.5 cm).

      - Archibald, Dictionary of sea painters of Europe and America, p. 149; Holdsworth, Mail and passenger steamships of the nineteenth century, pp. 288-289; The Lloyd mail VII (1937), p. 509; Maritiemdigitaal (1 copy). Rare portrait of the ship Utrecht, a full-rigged clipper with auxiliary power and screw propellers, built in 1868 for the firm of Van Zeylen & Decker in Rotterdam and capable of carrying 2009 tons. During the subsequent years, the ship made several voyages between Rotterdam and Batavia (Jakarta) and Semarang, carrying passengers and goods. Although the ship was equipped with an auxiliary steam engine, this system proved a failure and was removed in 1870-1871. After being sold to the firm of Voorhoeve & Jelier in Rotterdam, the ship sailed between Rotterdam, The United Kingdom, Ireland, the Dutch East Indies and San Francisco. The ship was sold in 1888 to the firm of C.M. Matzen in Hamburg and afterwards possibly to a firm in Norway.The British lithographer Thomas Goldsworth Dutton was "not only the finest 19th century lithographer of shipping scenes and ship portraits but happily the most prolific" (Archibald). During his career he produced numerous portraits of ships, including mercantile vessels of international companies, a large number of war ships of the Royal Navy and several yachts, as well as naval actions during the Crimean War.In fine condition, with only a few spots.

        Unique collection of published papers, autograph letters, and artifacts related to 20th century research into psychoactive substances

      1937-2004. Meticulously assembled collection of scientific papers, letters, and artifacts representing the global scientific community's work on relevant plant and synthetic compounds from the late 1930s through the 20th century. At the heart of the collection are 426 articles and reports from professional journals worldwide, including many offprints (several of them inscribed) and galley proofs. While the majority of these papers concern the chemistry and pharmacology of psychoactive substances, observations of behavior and narrative accounts are also represented. Apart from English language publications, there are papers in Spanish, Portuguese, German, and French. The collection additionally includes a box of three original ampules of LSD-empty of contents-in original packaging as it was produced by Sandoz, Ltd., in the 1950s. Among the more unusual contents is a 68 x 50 cm printed wall chart of "The Ergot Alkaloids and some of their Derivatives" prepared by Sandoz Laboratories in 1950, and distributed "with compliments of Sandoz, Ltd." Authors represented in the collection include Albert Hoffmann, Alexander Shulgin, Richard Schultes, Humphrey Osmond, R. Gordon Wasson, and others less famous but no less notable. Several of the papers are inscribed or signed by their authors, including Humphrey Osmond, Ara Der Marderosian, Anthony Jaccarini, E. Sartory, Gert Taubman, D.F. Downing, R. Perez, and Lars Nilsson. In addition to the offprints and articles, the collection includes signed letters from Richard Schultes, Humphrey Osmond, and Albert Hoffmann. The letter from Schultes (dated 1968) is a typed cover letter, signed, accompanying certain offprints. The Humphrey Osmond letter is a 2-page TLS (1957) concerning studies on the hallucinogenic components of the Mexican "magic drug" ololiuqui, on stationary of the Saskatchewan Hospital in Weyburn, Canada, where Osmond's research facility was based. The Albert Hoffmann letter is a single page TLS (1960) on stationary of Sandoz pharmaceuticals in Basel (of which Hofmann was then Acting Director), accompanied by a reprint of his short 1960 paper describing the isolation of lysergic acid alkaloids from ololiuqui. This finding was quite unexpected, among other reasons because these had previously been known to occur only in ergot. The collector has categorized the papers in folders labeled by substance (nutmeg, ololiuqui, LSD, coriaria, N,N-Dimethyl- and N,N-Diethyl Tryptamines, and so on). There are also printed books in the collection, including the first edition of Schultes' Botany and Chemistry of Hallucinogens (1963), and Henri Michaux's Miserable miracle: le mescaline (1972). A full accounting of the contents of the collection is available by request to the bookseller. . 426 offprints, papers, and articles arranged by substance type; three (empty) ampules of LSD in original box; original typed correspondence; books; etc.
