         Plume précédé de Lointain intérieur

      Nrf 1938 - - Nrf, Paris 1938, 11,5x18,5cm, relié. - Edition en partie originale pour laquelle il n'a pas été tiré de grand papier, un des exemplaires du service de presse. Reliure à la bradel en plein papier marbré, dos lisse, pièce de titre de maroquin bordeaux, couvertures et dos restaurés conservés, tête dorée. Précieux envoi autographe signé d'Henri Michaux « à Georges Bataille, amical hommage ». Jean-Pierre Martin dans sa biographie de Michaux affirme que les deux écrivains ne se rencontrèrent que pendant la seconde guerre mondiale. Cet exemplaire nous permet au contraire de supposer qu'ils entretenaient des relations d'amitié dès 1938. Après la guerre, les deux hommes participeront à la revue Mesures et prendront leurs distances de la nébuleuse surréaliste. Il se retrouve dans leurs œuvres respectives une violente indépendance et la même tension vers la spiritualité, une forme de mysticisme. Rare témoignage précoce de l'amitié littéraire qui unit Henri Michaux à Georges Bataille. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Partly first edition for which it was not drawn from big paper, one of the review copies service. Braid binding in full marbled paper, smooth back, title piece of morocco burgundy, covers and restored back preserved, gilded head. Precious autograph dedication signed by Henri Michaux "Georges Bataille, friendly tribute". Jean-Pierre Martin in his biography of Michaux states that the two writers met only during the Second World War. This copy allows us on the contrary to suppose that they maintained relations of friendship as early as 1938. After the war, the two men will participate in the magazine Measurement and will distance themselves from the surreal nebula. He finds himself in their respective works a violent independence and the same tension towards spirituality, a form of mysticism. Rare early testimony of the literary friendship that unites Henri Michaux with Georges Bataille. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

         Calendar of Annual Events in Oklahoma

      [Oklahoma City]: Works Progress Administration in the State of Oklahoma, 1938. First Edition. Paperback. Very Good. First edition. Stapled orange pictorial wraps with clear spiderweb tissue guards. Illustrated. Very Good condition overall. Small chip to upper corner of front cover and another on back cover that effects the tissue-guard. Cover worn at bottom staple. In much better shape than usually found as wraps are quite brittle. Before any of his well-known hard-boiled suspense novels, Thompson wrote and edited this guidebook for the Federal Writers' Project of Oklahoma. He was a Communist Party member at the time and his writing here, stylistically, is far removed from his comparatively-apolitical, suspenseful pulp novels of the pulp era.

         Entartete Musik

      1938. ZIEGLER, Hans Severus. Entartete Musik. 32 pp. Thin 8vo., bound in publisher's illustrated wrappers. Preserved in a new red cloth folding box. Dusseldorf: Druck und Verlag: 1938. An illustrated catalogue from one of the first exhibitions on Nazi-designated "degenerate music," part of the more widespread Nazi campaign against so-called "degenerate art." The pamphlet represents an exemplary graphic work of the time, as well as an important document of Nazi-era art censorship and propaganda. Entartete Musik features a striking cover illustration of an African-American jazz saxophonist against a red background, wearing a Star of David on his lapel - a composite of the genres, ethnicities and political ideologies deemed "degenerate" by the Nazi regime. Additionally, the pamphlet includes portrait photographs of the progenitors of "degenerate music," among them prominent Jewish composers such as Arnold Schönberg and jazz composers such as Ernst Krenek. The catalogue also features black and white reproductions of Paul Klee and Carl Hofer paintings with the caption, "Degenerate Art and Degenerate Music Hand in Hand." A rare, well-preserved copy in fine condition.

Metal comb-style binding. 33cm. An apparently unrecorded assemblage of what appear to be the 50 photos that appeared in this iconic title with the logo on the wrapper of the well-known firm that printed the photos for the book published in 1938 by The Archetype Press in Berkeley, California. While we can see that Donnelley was involved in the production of the photos for this iconic title, we don't know enough about the field of photography, the history of this book, or the exact parameters of Donnelley's involvement to know why this was produced.

         [Works] The Writings in Prose and Verse ...

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1938. Outward Bound Edition, one of 2 copies, with special limitation leaf: There have been printed Two Sets of The Outward Bound Edition on Dickinson's Handmade paper for Rudyard Kipling and F.N.Doubleday. 8vo. Quarter brown morocco and grey drab boards, vellum tips, t.e.g., others uncut. Occasional slight rubbing, else fine in black cloth slipcases. Outward Bound Edition, one of 2 copies, with special limitation leaf: There have been printed Two Sets of The Outward Bound Edition on Dickinson's Handmade paper for Rudyard Kipling and F.N.Doubleday. 8vo. EFFENDI'S COPY, INSCRIBED, ONE OF TWO SETS. Superb set testifying to the great literary friendship between Kipling and his great champion in America, F.N. Doubleday, whom Kipling would later dub "Effendi" (after his initials, F.N.D.). The first volume of this ad hominem set, Plain Tales from the Hills (Richards A95), is inscribed twice and with a quotation by Kipling: the frontispiece portrait, opposite the limitation leaf, is inscribed "Rudyard Kipling to F.N. Doubleday who invented this edition. Jan. 1897"; inscribed again on the title page, "To Frank from Rud: April 99" striking through his printed name out and signing below "Rudyard Kipling"; opposite the title page, Kipling has written the opening line of "Follow Me 'Ome": There was no one like 'im,Orse or Foot, Nor any o' the Guns I knew Richards notes (D5, p. 572): "The set at Wimpole (former home of Kipling's daughter Elsie Bambridge) contains a printed leaf stating 'There have been printed two sets of the Outward Bound edition on Dickinson's handmade paper for Rudyard Kipling and F. N. Doubleday.' " After receiving his copy of The Years Between in this edition, Kipling wrote Doubleday on 27 August 1919: 'I don't think that the Outward Bound Edition qua Edition will ever be beaten' (Doubleday Princeton, MSS Division, VI). " Volumes XV & XVI are each bound in two parts; the latter volumes of the set do not quite correspond to Richards D5: Letters of Travel [A328], has a fly title identifying it as vol. XXIX (Richards calls it vol. XXVIII); The Irish Guards in the War (2 vols., 1923) and Debits and Credits (1926) (vols. XXIX, XXX, XXI in Richards) are not present. A Book of Words (1928) bears the printed series title XXXIII and is one of 130 sets on Japan paper; vols. XXXIV to XXXVII are also on the Japan paper without limitation: Limits and Renewals (1932), War Writings and Poems (1937), Land and Sea Tales (1937), and Something of Myself (1938). In his memoirs, Doubleday wrote that one day someone asked: "'Will you get me a complete set of Kipling in uniform binding?' I told him that it did not exist. That gave me an idea that perhaps I could get permission to make a uniform set. The difficulties of the job, even now that I look back on it, were tremendous." A SPECTACULAR ASSOCIATION. See Richards D5 (note); Martindell 180, Livingston pp. 432-447 and Supp. p. 179, Stewart pp. 560-563, Ballard p. 228

         Uber Elementumwandlungen im Inneren der Sterne I [- II]. Two offprints from Physikalische Zeitschrift 28, no. 6, 15 March 1937 [- 29, no. 17/18, 15 September 1938].

      - First edition, the very rare offprints, of these two papers in which von Weizsäcker first proposed a detailed mechanism, called the carbon-nitrogen-oxygen (CNO) cycle, to explain how the stars shine: hydrogen atoms are fused in the centre of stars to form helium atoms using carbon as a catalyst, resulting in the release of large quantities of energy. This is still believed to be the predominant energy-producing mechanism in stars more massive than the Sun. The CNO cycle was developed independently by Hans Bethe six months later (and is now known as the Bethe-Weizsäcker cycle); Bethe was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics 1967 ?for his contributions to the theory of nuclear reactions, especially his discoveries concerning the energy production in stars? (von Weizsäcker was twice nominated for the Nobel Prize but was not awarded it). Part II of von Weizsäcker?s paper is also important in the history of cosmology, suggesting a ?big-bang? theory of the origin of the universe, as well as a possible explanation of the relative abundances of the elements. ?Weizsacker?s paper of 1938 deserves to be recognized not only as a pioneering contribution to our understanding of why the stars shine, but also as an interesting attempt to provide the origin of the universe with a physical explanation. Weizsacker?s picture was that of a big-bang universe? (Kragh, p. 99). Not in OCLC; no copies in auction records.?Carl Friedrich von Weizsäcker, since fall 1936 an assistant at the new Kaiser Wilhelm-Institut fur Physik in Berlin-Dahlem, signed on 22 January 1937, a review article entitled ?Uber Elementumwandlungen im Inneren der Sterne? (On the Transmutation of Elements in Stars). He started from what he called the ?Aufbauhypothese? (hypothesis of ?constitution? or ?building up?), which he attributed to Arthur Stanley Eddington (1926), and stated ?that, apart from negligibly small effects, the nuclear transmutations studied theoretically provide the sole origin of the composite inner regions of the stars which initially are composed of pure hydrogen and their unique source of energy? (p. 176). The empirical data obtained on the chemical constitution of stars, especially the frequency of the occurrence of heavier elements, encouraged von Weizsäcker to extend the ?Aufbauhypothese?: ?The temperature in the interior of stars takes on values allowing the transmutation of the lightest nuclei on the basis of hydrogen. The energy obtained from these transmutations provides the source of the emission of radiation due to the [surface] temperature of the star. The transformations do not directly lead to the origin of heavier nuclei; however, in their course free neutrons are created as byproducts, which build-up a part of the available [lighter] nuclei into the known heavier elements? (p. 178). He added: ?If this concept is correct, the star acts as an engine which, with the help of the liberated nuclear energies, sustains the necessary external conditions steadily,? and: ?It should be the only possible engine of this kind? (loc. cit.). With this fundamental hypothesis in mind, von Weizsäcker pursued a systematic survey of the various energy-producing reactions of the lightest nuclei and their relevance for the internal constitution of the stars, and then the formation of the heavy nuclei by reactions with neutrons.?In dealing with the nuclear reactions in stars, von Weizsäcker confined himself to consider only thermally induced reactions, initially with charged light particles - namely, proton, deuteron, and triton ? For the continuous production of energy the existence of ?reaction chains? was necessary, which not only produced enough energy and higher elements (such as helium from hydrogen) but also supplied the material for the initial reaction. Von Weizsäcker discussed a number of possibilities for such reactions and the resulting relative frequencies of higher nuclei in stars .?In spite of these initial successes, the generalized ?Aufbauhypothese? revea

Über das Verhältnis der völkischen Individuation zu dem System des Weltverkehrs, Das faulende Gold, Arbeitsnot und Wirtschaftskrise - biologisch gesehen (1935), Rede an die Buchhändler (Oberammergau, 1933), Völkerverständigung, Ansprache gehalten im Rotary-Klub (München, 1935), Dankesworte gesprochen nach der Verleihung des Goethe-Preises Frankfurt 1937.- - Der Sohn des Baumeisters Franz Kolbenheyer und der Karlsbaderin Amalie Hein besuchte das Gymnasium in Eger und wurde nach dem Philosophie-, Psychologie- und Zoologiestudium an der Universität Wien 1905 zum Dr.phil. promoviert, war dort auch seit 1906 Mitglied des akademischen Corps Symposion. 1919 übersiedelte er nach Tübingen und lebte dort bis 1932 als freier Schriftsteller lebte. 1917 bis 1926 entstand sein Hauptwerk: die Romantrilogie Paracelsus. Seit 1926 Mitglied der Preußischen Dichterakademie, vertrat Kolbenheyer eine Philosophie des Biologismus: es gäbe fundamentale biologische Unterschiede zwischen den Völkern, und Eigentümlichkeiten z.B. der deutschen Dichtkunst seien auf biologische Grundlagen des deutschen Volkstums zurückzuführen. Er begründete eine Schule von Anhängern nach dem Vorbild der mittelalterlichen Bauhütten, gehörte bereits 1928 zum Förderkreis des Kampfbunds für deutsche Kultur. 1933 bis 1944 unterstützte er den Nationalsozialismus in zahlreichen Reden und Schriften und gehörte zu den Unterzeichnern des Aufrufs der Kulturschaffenden zur Volksbefragung am 19. August 1934 über die Zusammenlegung des Reichskanzler- und Reichspräsidentenamtes in der Person von Adolf Hitlers. 1940 trat er der NSDAP bei. Kolbenheyer wurde in der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus vielfach ausgezeichnet und 1944 von Hitler bzw. dem Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda auf eine Sonderliste - die sog. \"Gottbegnadetenliste\" - gesetzt, zusammen mit anderen Künstlern der Zeit wie Arno Breker, Fritz Klimsch, Georg Kolbe, Josef Thorak, Hermann Gradl, Arthur Kampf, Willy Kriegel, Werner Peiner, Leonhard Gall, Hermann Giesler, Wilhelm Kreis, Paul Schultze-Naumburg, Gerhard Hauptmann, Hans Carossa, Hanns Johst, Agnes Miegel, Ina Seidel, Hans Pfitzner, Richard Strauss und Wilhelm Furtwängler . Dadurch genoss er einige Vorrechte wie etwa die Freistellung vom Kriegsdienst. Nach 1945 wurde Kolbenheyer von den Siegermächten mit einem fünfjährigen Schreibverbot bestraft. Werner Bergengruen wertete 1946 Kolbenheyers Wirken während der NS-Zeit folgendermaßen: \"In seiner großen Eitelkeit war er der Meinung, das geistige Leben Deutschlands kulminiere in seiner Person\". In der Sowjetischen Besatzungszone SBZ wurden mehrere seiner Schriften auf die \"Liste der auszusondernden Literatur\" gesetzt (frei nach Wikipedia). - Leder-Vorzugsausgabe, Erstausgabe in sehr guter Erhaltung - Beiliegend ein Zeitungsausschnitt: \"Der Dichter der bösen Idee.

      - London, Methuen, [1938]. Small 4to. Original cloth with dust-wrapper (price-clipped); pp. xiv, [2], 230, frontispiece and numerous text illustrations; wrapper a little frayed, spine darkened and with a few spots, otherwise very good; provenance: gift inscription, dated 1943 on front fly-leaf. Very rare first edition of one of the earliest and best informed books on the subject in the English language, written by a practitioner of the art. 'To summarize: In China, anything which can claim to be a work of art has some connexion, obvious or subtle, with calligraphy' (p. 220). The 'Chinese artist and writer Chiang Yee (1903-1977) came to Britain in 1933, where he lived and worked until 1955. During this time he wrote a successful series of illustrated travelogues using the pen name ‘Yaxingzhe’ or ‘Silent Traveller’. The books describe Chiang Yee’s life in London and Oxford during the turbulent years of the Second World War and record his travels to the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, Edinburgh and Dublin. Illustrated throughout, with his own unique ink and watercolour paintings, sketches and poems, they represent a significant artistic, as well as literary project. Notably among the first Chinese writers to write books in English in the first half of the 20th century, Chiang enjoyed a prolific publishing career in Britain, in which he also published two seminal texts on Chinese painting and calligraphy, memoirs of his childhood in China, and several children’s books' (V&A Online Journal Issue No. 4 Summer 2012). The book was reprinted several times and in 1986, translated into Chinese and published in Shanghai. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      München, Verlag Albert Langen / Georg Müller, 1938 - (noch zu Nr.13278.) . . . Über das Verhältnis der völkischen Individuation zu dem System des Weltverkehrs, Das faulende Gold, Arbeitsnot und Wirtschaftskrise - biologisch gesehen (1935), Rede an die Buchhändler (Oberammergau, 1933), Völkerverständigung, Ansprache gehalten im Rotary-Klub (München, 1935), Dankesworte gesprochen nach der Verleihung des Goethe-Preises Frankfurt 1937.- - Der Sohn des Baumeisters Franz Kolbenheyer und der Karlsbaderin Amalie Hein besuchte das Gymnasium in Eger und wurde nach dem Philosophie-, Psychologie- und Zoologiestudium an der Universität Wien 1905 zum Dr.phil. promoviert, war dort auch seit 1906 Mitglied des akademischen Corps Symposion. 1919 übersiedelte er nach Tübingen und lebte dort bis 1932 als freier Schriftsteller lebte. 1917 bis 1926 entstand sein Hauptwerk: die Romantrilogie Paracelsus. Seit 1926 Mitglied der Preußischen Dichterakademie, vertrat Kolbenheyer eine Philosophie des Biologismus: es gäbe fundamentale biologische Unterschiede zwischen den Völkern, und Eigentümlichkeiten z.B. der deutschen Dichtkunst seien auf biologische Grundlagen des deutschen Volkstums zurückzuführen. Er begründete eine Schule von Anhängern nach dem Vorbild der mittelalterlichen Bauhütten, gehörte bereits 1928 zum Förderkreis des Kampfbunds für deutsche Kultur. 1933 bis 1944 unterstützte er den Nationalsozialismus in zahlreichen Reden und Schriften und gehörte zu den Unterzeichnern des Aufrufs der Kulturschaffenden zur Volksbefragung am 19. August 1934 über die Zusammenlegung des Reichskanzler- und Reichspräsidentenamtes in der Person von Adolf Hitlers. 1940 trat er der NSDAP bei. Kolbenheyer wurde in der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus vielfach ausgezeichnet und 1944 von Hitler bzw. dem Reichsministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda auf eine Sonderliste - die sog. "Gottbegnadetenliste" - gesetzt, zusammen mit anderen Künstlern der Zeit wie Arno Breker, Fritz Klimsch, Georg Kolbe, Josef Thorak, Hermann Gradl, Arthur Kampf, Willy Kriegel, Werner Peiner, Leonhard Gall, Hermann Giesler, Wilhelm Kreis, Paul Schultze-Naumburg, Gerhard Hauptmann, Hans Carossa, Hanns Johst, Agnes Miegel, Ina Seidel, Hans Pfitzner, Richard Strauss und Wilhelm Furtwängler . Dadurch genoss er einige Vorrechte wie etwa die Freistellung vom Kriegsdienst. Nach 1945 wurde Kolbenheyer von den Siegermächten mit einem fünfjährigen Schreibverbot bestraft. Werner Bergengruen wertete 1946 Kolbenheyers Wirken während der NS-Zeit folgendermaßen: "In seiner großen Eitelkeit war er der Meinung, das geistige Leben Deutschlands kulminiere in seiner Person". In der Sowjetischen Besatzungszone SBZ wurden mehrere seiner Schriften auf die "Liste der auszusondernden Literatur" gesetzt (frei nach Wikipedia). - Leder-Vorzugsausgabe, Erstausgabe in sehr guter Erhaltung - Beiliegend ein Zeitungsausschnitt: "Der Dichter der bösen Idee.
