        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Kirchstetten, 28. VIII. 1938.

      1938. 2¾ SS. auf 3 Bll. 4to. An den späteren Verlagslektor Hans Rössner: "Was da die Ausländer von uns als 'Barbaren' sagen - das stimmt schon. Aber die sehen nur das Offizielle. Dir wirklichen Kräfte zu sehn ist ihnen nicht beschieden. Und es gibt wirkliche Kräfte der deutschen Kunst, die es sich so schwer machen wie eh und je! Glaub nicht, daß ich einen Augenblick an der deutschen Kunst gezweifelt hätte! Wir Deutschen haben nur unendlich viel zu fressen, was uns die Vorangegangenen übriggelassen haben [...] Ich werde das, solange ich lebe, im Auge behalten. Ich werde mich bemühen, abseits von den 'Programmen' das zu tun, was ich für richtig halte. Ich werde in der Kunst nie etwas Gemeines tun. Ich werde im Gegenteil alles tun, um der Kunst wieder jenen Platz zu erobern, der ihr gebührt. Du, Herzenskamerad, weißt, daß die Kunst für mich Religion ist, und daß ich keine andere Religion kenne. Du bist ein studierter Mensch, und Du wirst das alles viel besser verstehen als ich, der alles nur aus seinem Gefühl hat. (Ich habe nie 'studiert'.) Allerdings bin ich in den antiken Sprachen und in den Vorstellungen der Antike mehr zuhause als viele Hochschulprofessoren. Dieses Wort des Stolzes soll aber keine Spitze beinhalten. Ich habe mehr als andere gelernt aus eben dem bekannten Minderwertigkeitsgefühl und wenn ich heute jeden Hochschulprofessor in bezug auf die Metrik und Rhythmik der Alten zu schlagen imstande bin, so nur deshalb, weil eine Liebe ohnegleichen sich durch 2 Jahrzehnte mit der Materie befaßte. Was Du mir vom Auslandsdeutschtum schreibst, ist packend. Du muß die Leute mit aller Leidenschaft zu den großen Dichtern hinführen. Blunck und Consorten gehören nicht dazu. Gib ihnen Claudius, Mörike, Hölderlin, Hardenberg; in unserer näheren Zeit Heym und Trakl; Rilke; (nicht so sehr George); gib ihnen in unserer nächsten Zeit Weinheber, (weil kein Dichter wie er so alles gesagt hat) [...]". - Bl. 1 rechts oben mit rotem Farbstift vom Adressaten markiert, Bl. 2 und 3 rechts oben korrekt vom Autor numeriert; geringfügige Altersspuren.

        Sketches on the Nile: An Album of 43 Original Watercolors and Doggerel Verse Documenting a Nile Cruise in 1938

      1938. Black leather album containing 54 tissue-guarded leaves of watercolor paper, of which 43 have been used. 10 x 12 inches, stamped in gilt on the front "Sketches on the Nile / Alan Hinch / 1938." Leather scuffed, cloth tape reinforcement to inner hinges, all else very good. Alan Hinch was born in England c. 1881, but was living in the United States by 1920, when the federal census documents him working in Miami as pilot of a private yacht owned by socialite James Deering, an executive in International Harvester Company. He apparently embarked on this Nile cruise as companion to his next employer, Richard Flint Howe (1863-1943), another International Harvester executive who had married James Deering's sister, Abby. Passenger manifests show Hinch as traveling in the company of a "Mr. R. Howe," and the census of 1940 lists him as butler on Howe's estate. He was clearly more than a simple servant, however, as this charming and humorous album reveals. The album documents the journey from departure on the Italian Line passenger ship Conte de Savoia on January 15, 1938 to arrival home at Banksia, Howe's custom-built mansion in Aiken, South Carolina, on March 26, 1938. Each page includes an original watercolor (most measuring about 4.5 x 8 inches, but some larger), with a related original doggerel poem. Hinch's paintings are skillful. His poetry is markedly less so, but it is clever, observant, and skillfully captures the traveler's experiences.On a visit to Asyut, Hinch writes: Assuit the place they said would be warm/ Was 42 degrees at early morn/ If the like keeps on we will have to don /Earlaps, coonskins, as at a football game./ Rode through the quarters where the natives were/ Couldn't say lived, for it looked so bare/ They called out for bakscheesh/ Both old, and young/ They thought we came only to give to them./ Oh, what a place to be born and live./ Then through the bazaar narrow and crowded/ Maybe bargains galore/ But we passed through as quick as we could./ Oddments, and rubbish in hovels so poor./ Then to the tombs too high to climb/ And round the modern town we drove/ Back on board the "Memnon" to dine. A visit to the ancient cemetery at Beni Hasan is described from the perspective of the donkeys who labor under the weight of well-fed tourists. Other subjects include the ocean liners and streamers they traveled in, local people they encountered (a dragoman, a water carrier, a little girl in a red scarf), boats on the Nile, camels and water buffalo, the Pyramids, Sphinx, Panopolis, El-Balyyana, Abydos, Karnak, Kom Ombo, Wadi Haifa, Abu Simbel, and Luxor. There are also several views of the Mediterranean coast and one of Banksia in South Carolina. In all, a charming and lovely representation of the places and time.

        Listen! The Wind . With Foreword and Map Drawings by Charles A. Lindbergh.

      New York: Harcourt, Brace & Co., 1938. - 8vo (203 x 136mm), pp. xii, 275, [1 (blank)]; 3 full-page maps and one illustration after Charles Lindbergh; one half-tone plate; original red cloth blocked in gilt with airplane design on upper board and lettered in gilt on the spine, map endpapers after Charles Lindbergh, top edges blue, pictorial dustwrapper, with design after Charles Lindbergh, retaining price, glassine dustwrapper, morocco backed slipcase, spine lettered and decorated in gilt; lettering on spine slightly dulled, dustwrapper slightly rubbed and chipped at edges, glassine dustwrapper browned and chipped at edges, nonetheless a very good, bright copy, retaining the pictorial and glassine dustwrappers.First edition of an award-winning book. Anne Morrow Lindbergh (1906-2001) met the celebrated American aviator Charles Lindbergh in 1927, when her father Dwight Morrow, the American ambassador to Mexico, invited Lindbergh to visit the country. They married in 1929, she soon learnt to fly under his tutelage, and then became her husband's trusted co-pilot; indeed, in 1930, she became the first woman to receive a United States Glider Pilot Licence – one of numerous 'firsts' as a female pilot. In 1931 the Lindberghs undertook a historic series of flights in their specially-adapted Lockheed Sirius, Tingmissartog, travelling across Alaska and Canada to Japan and China, in order to explore new routes for airmail. Anne Lindbergh recorded the experiences in her best-selling book North to the Orient (New York: 1935) – which won the inaugural National Book Award for Nonfiction – and in 1933 the Lindberghs made a survey flight around the North Atlantic Ocean: '[t]he purpose of the flight was to study the air-routes between America and Europe. At that time, the air-routes of the world were entering their final stages of development. The countries had already been crossed and the continents connected. It remained only for the oceans to be spanned. Their great overwater distances constituted the last major barrier to the commerce of the air' (p. v). After crossing the northern part of the Atlantic from New York to Copenhagen, the Lindberghs flew south to Africa and then crossed the southern part of the Atlantic, and Listen! The Wind describes the flight across the southern Atlantic. The book reflects the collaborative nature of the flight, and the body of the book is Anne Morrow Lindbergh's work, complemented by Charles Lindbergh's foreword, appendix, maps, and dustwrapper design. Anne Morrow Lindbergh's exploits earned her the National Geographic Society's Hubbard Gold Medal in 1934.Bennett, A Practical Guide to American Book Collecting (1663-1940), p. 237.

        Arms and the Covenant.

      London: George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd,, 1938. Compiled by Randolph S. Churchill. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt within triple fillet gilt, rule to front board in blind, top edge blue. With the dust jacket. Portrait frontispiece. Spine slightly faded; an excellent copy in the jacket with short closed tears and a couple of minor chips to extremities, some light marks to panels and tape repairs to verso. First edition, only printing, in the scarce first issue jacket, priced 18/- net. An important collection of Churchill's speeches, warning of the dangers of a re-armed Germany. A contemporary review in the journal of the Royal Institute for International Affairs remarked that "apart from their literary graces" Churchill's speeches were remarkable because of "the restraint of their language" in view of the "blunders and inaccuracies" of the Government and for his technical mastery: "There seems to be nothing from Naval Strategy to the jigs and tools in an aircraft factory... on which Mr. Churchill is not an expert."

        Sketches on the Nile: An Album of 43 Original Watercolors and Doggerel Verse Documenting a Nile Cruise in 1938

      Black leather album containing 54 tissue-guarded leaves of watercolor paper, of which 43 have been used. 10 x 12 inches, stamped in gilt on the front "Sketches on the Nile / Alan Hinch / 1938." Leather scuffed, cloth tape reinforcement to inner hinges, all else very good. Alan Hinch was born in England c. 1881, but was living in the United States by 1920, when the federal census documents him working in Miami as pilot of a private yacht owned by socialite James Deering, an executive in International Harvester Company. He apparently embarked on this Nile cruise as companion to his next employer, Richard Flint Howe (1863-1943), another International Harvester executive who had married James Deering's sister, Abby. Passenger manifests show Hinch as traveling in the company of a "Mr. R. Howe," and the census of 1940 lists him as butler on Howe's estate. He was clearly more than a simple servant, however, as this charming and humorous album reveals. The album documents the journey from departure on the Italian Line passenger ship Conte de Savoia on January 15, 1938 to arrival home at Banksia, Howe's custom-built mansion in Aiken, South Carolina, on March 26, 1938. Each page includes an original watercolor (most measuring about 4.5 x 8 inches, but some larger), with a related original doggerel poem. Hinch's paintings are skillful. His poetry is markedly less so, but it is clever, observant, and skillfully captures the traveler's experiences. On a visit to Asyut, Hinch writes: Assuit the place they said would be warm/ Was 42 degrees at early morn/ If the like keeps on we will have to don /Earlaps, coonskins, as at a football game./ Rode through the quarters where the natives were/ Couldn't say lived, for it looked so bare/ They called out for bakscheesh/ Both old, and young/ They thought we came only to give to them./ Oh, what a place to be born and live./ Then through the bazaar narrow and crowded/ Maybe bargains galore/ But we passed through as quick as we could./ Oddments, and rubbish in hovels so poor./ Then to the tombs too high to climb/ And round the modern town we drove/ Back on board the "Memnon" to dine. A visit to the ancient cemetery at Beni Hasan is described from the perspective of the donkeys who labor under the weight of well-fed tourists. Other subjects include the ocean liners and streamers they traveled in, local people they encountered (a dragoman, a water carrier, a little girl in a red scarf), boats on the Nile, camels and water buffalo, the Pyramids, Sphinx, Panopolis, El-Balyyana, Abydos, Karnak, Kom Ombo, Wadi Haifa, Abu Simbel, and Luxor. There are also several views of the Mediterranean coast and one of Banksia in South Carolina. In all, a charming and lovely representation of the places and time.
