        Huge archive regarding the Dutch pre-war literary almanac In Aanbouw.

      Original correspondence, contributions, editorial notes, photographs and artwork. Approx. 500 A.L.S. and T.L.S. by 140 young Dutch and Flemish authors including Bertus Aafjes, Anna Blaman, Johan Daisne, Bert Decorte, Chr.J. van Geel, Jan d'Haese, Jac. van Hattum, Jacob Hiegentlich, Ed. Hoornik, Karel Jonckheere, Cor Klinkenbijl, Louis Th. Lehmann, A. Marja, Adriaan Morriën, F.C. Terborgh, M. Vasalis, Ab Visser and publishing houses Leopold and Manteau; 150 concepts of letters and submission reviews by K. Lekkerkerker; 40 original photographs and drawings; dozens of proofs, clippings and promotional material; letters and prints about the reprint that was issued to commemorate the 50th birthday of the book. 1938-1946 and 1989.* Fascinating archive of the nicely illustrated almanac that published work of no less than 51 promising young literary authors of 1939 from Holland and Belgium. Composed by K. Lekkerkerker, In Aanbouw (meaning Under Construction) is considered the most important pre-war anthology. The letters by the (mostly male) poets and writers concern their latest work, their bio- and bibliographies (so far) and their portraits. This archive not only consists of full correspondences, but also shows Lekkerkerker's editorial work, his consultations with his Dutch and Flemish publishers, and his efforts to hold In Aanbouw exhibitions in bookstores all over the Low Countries.Some authors, like Lehmann and d'Haese, overload Lekkerkerker with extensive letters, poems and stories. Others are more reserved: the illustrious bibliophile Emile van der Borch van Verwolde immediately refuses to cede a photograph, Belcampo considers himself too old to be included in the almanac, and the diplomat Reijnier Flaes does not wish to be associated with his pseudonym F.C. Terborgh. Much to Lekkerkerker's regret, M. Vasalis only sends a (charming) rejection letter. After the successful launch of In Aanbouw and its talents, some authors continue to correspond with Lekkerkerker about literature and more personal matters. The archive also contains poems and stories that were considered superfluous or unfit for publication: i.a. a satirical sonnet by Chris van Geel Jr. and a short story by Terborgh."U zult het [portret] echter niet krijgen, en ik hoop dat dit U teleurstelt! Ik houd het er voor dat een portret en een gedicht elkaar niet goed verdragen" (Van der Borch van Verwolde, 1-12-1938); "Mij is om verschillende redenen er zeer veel aan gelegen dat mijn pseudoniem (F.C. Terborgh) voor zoo veel mogelijk gerespecteerd wordt. Een portret moet ik derhalve weigeren. Een zeer beknopte en onvolledige biographie zou kunnen worden verstrekt. Een bibliographie van niets is moeilijk te geven" (Flaes, 6-1-1939); "Mijn schrijfdrift is belangrijk ouder dan mijn literaire loopbaan die beperkt is tot de publicatie van wat verzen in Helikon en van wat verzen en een korte novelle in Werk. Leopold en Gorter vonden mijn liefde voor poezie het eerst gereed. De Balzac en Dostojewsky leerden mij waardoor en waarom er geschreven moet worden" (Blaman, 29-7-1939); "Ik ben 1,77m lang, weeg 70 k.g., heb enige jaren gehockeyd en beoefen nu athletiek. Ik schrijf verzen sinds 1936, maar vind Bix Beiderbecke een grotere dode dan Rilke. Mijn werkwijze bestaat uit het imiteren van anderen, dat ik gepubliceerd word is geheel buiten mijn toedoen" (Lehmann, autobiography 1939).Important, multifaceted material from numerous beginners and budding authors - some with a shining future, some soon to be forgotten.

        Signed British India 5 Rupees "Short Snorter" Banknote

      1938. unbound. Churchill has placed his signature on the back of a British India 5 Rupees Banknote -- the classic 1938 design depicting George VI in profile, P-18a, 3 x 5 inches, multi-colored with the addition of a security watermark. In describing the correct definition of a Short Snorter nobody has summed it up better than Francis Cardinal Spellman: "A Short Snorter is one who has crossed the ocean in an airplane. The certificate of membership in this society consists of a signature(s) on a dollar bill or other paper currency which must be always in a Short Snorter's possession. Upon failure to produce it on demand - he is penalized by being obliged to treat everyone to a short 'snort' that is...a short snort of whiskey." Winston Churchill was very fond of the game and there are many documented recollections of him signing paper money and of entrapping some of his guests into buying several rounds of alcohol. William Manchester, in his acclaimed trilogy, "The Last Lion," describes a trip made by Churchill and General George Marshall: "All on board signed one another's short snorters, these were banknotes carried by those who had made a trans-Atlantic flight, signed by others who had done the same. Anyone who failed to produce his short snorter forfeited a dollar or bought a short snot of liquor. Churchill gamely signed his short snorters as the flying boat made its way North." Most short snorters are in terrible condition from constant handling. They were usually folded in half and placed in the pocket compartment of a wallet - as opposed to placing currency in a bill fold. Two recent Churchill short snorters sold at auction (different houses) were described as "with scotch tape over a portion of signature" and "heavy creases through signature which crosses the fold." These are probably the most common grades encountered. Our signed 5 Rupees banknote is in excellent condition. There are two tiny holes at the top left hand margin -- the handiwork of the individual who stapled the banknote into a scrapbook. The usual fold is present but it is extremely light and does not detract. The signature is sharply written and neat in appearance. The contrast is exceptional because Churchill knew that the best place to sign would be in the white Reserve Bank of India window. British Statesman and twice-elected Prime Minister of Great Britain.

        Chi sono, quanti sono, come si chiamano. Gli Ebrei in Italia. Tutti i cognomi delle famiglie ebraiche

      A.R.I.A. casa editrice, Roma 1938 - In 8, pp. 18. Br. ed. con lievissime mancanze ai piatti. Edizione originale di questo opuscolo di Schaerf che raccoglie in ordine alfabetico i nomi degli Ebrei italiani. Schaerf aveva pubblicato nel 1925 anche 'I cognomi degli Ebrei in Italia con un'appendice su le famiglie nobili ebree d'Italia'. Appare evidente la distorsione operata da questa edizione rispetto alla volonta' dell'autore - di origini ebraiche - di compiere uno studioÂmeramente scientifico di tipoÂonomastico-storico sui cognomi degli Ebrei. A fugare infatti ogni dubbio in tal sensoÂe'Âil testo che appare al contropiatto anteriore che recita: 'L'elenco che pubblichiamo fu compilato dall'ebreo Samuele Schaert [sic] sulla scorta dei dati esistenti presso il Keren Hajesod e puo' quindi considerarsi quasi come ufficiale. Esso servira' ad individuare i discendenti della nomade tribu' di Israele accampati nel sacro suolo d'Italia, ecc.'. Lo spirito del lavoro di Shaerf viene quindi stravolto, nel 1938, divenendo uno strumento di delazione per individuare - e quindi perseguitare - gli Ebrei italiani. La pubblicazione si inserisce d'altro canto nel solco di analoghi testi come quello di Carlo Barduzzi, Bibliografia ebraica e giudaica in lingua italiana con aggiunte dei cognomi portati dai Giudei residenti nel Regno, pubblicato sempre nel 1938, testo che - come ammetteva Dino Provenzal in una sua lettera - fu utilizzato dalle SS per compiere retate e persecuzioni.

It was the name of the large street where the trade was concentrated (also including Nikolai- and Reichs-strasse) . The Brühl reached it&#146;s highest density with 794 shops in 1928. Of these, about 58 percent were Jewish run and owned. In the period 1926-1930, the Brühl controlled about one third of the world market in furs. With the great depression, followed by the Nazi seizure of power in 1933, the fur trade went into decline. For political reasons the fascist leadership limited the import quotas for goods from the USSR, such as raw fur. And, of course, increasingly, Jewish merchants in the Brühl were discriminated against and expelled. Many fled to England or the United States, where they established new fur businesses. Following Kristallnacht, which came only 1 month after the publication of this guide in October 1938, it became impossible for Jewish furriers to function. Some of the most famous Jewish fur traders included: Julius (Judel) Ariowitsch (1855-1908) ; Chaim Eitingon (1857-1932) , known as "Fur King from Brühl", founder of the Ez Chaim Synagogue and the Jewish hospital; the Frankel family; the Harmerlin Family; John B. (John [Joel] Berend) Oppenheimer & Company; F. Weiss (1893-1982) ; and Theodor Wolf (1833) . OCLC lists only one holding worldwide (German National Library) . Light wear, occational pencil scribbles, overall Very Good Condition. Quite rare and important. (holo2-125-28) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Valse-caprice pour le Piano. Autograph musical manuscript signed "Ant. Rubinstein." Undated, but ca. 1870

      Folio (352 x 265 mm.). Finely bound in full modern green morocco with facsimile of composer's autograph signature to upper and monogrammatic device of Werner-Eberhard Müller to lower, all within decorative gilt border, marbled endpapers. [1] (title, with signature "Ant. Rubinstein"), [2-4] pp. Notated in ink on 16-stave hand-ruled music paper with blindstamp of Lard-Esnault, Paris. With autograph dedication to title: "A Madame la Comtesse Louisa de Mercy & d'Argentau [!Louise de Mercy- Argenteau];" autograph caption to first page of music: "Valse=Caprice;" and tempo indication to upper left corner: "Vivace." Repeats not written out. Engraver's corrections and annotations in pencil to first page of music: "Verlag und Eigenthum v[on] Bartholf Senff Leipzig;" "16620" in blue pencil to title. From the collection of Werner-Eberhard Müller, Leipzig, with "Werner-Eberhard Müller Leipzig 1938" and "Seiner lieben Susanne zugeeignet von ihrem Vater Leipzig 1961" in pencil to verso of front endpaper. Slightly worn and soiled, particularly at upper edge of last leaf; creased at folds; small circular piece of lavender paper glued to title. . "A charming concert waltz with large and dangerous leaps and a memorable tune." Sitsky pp. 134-35 The annotations confirm that the present autograph of the complete work served as the engraver's manuscript for the first edition, published in 1870 by Bartholf Senff in Leipzig (PN 937). The faulty spelling of the dedicatee's name is faithfully preserved in that edition. The copy on IMSLP, uploaded by the Biblioteca Nacional de España, is not a first edition (despite the identical plate number), and has variant readings in the musical text. Rubinstein dedicated the work to Louise Comtesse de Mercy-Argenteau (Marie-Clotilde-Elisabeth Louise de Riquet, Comtesse de Mercy-Argenteau, 1837-1890) a Belgian aristocrat of considerable musical erudition; Mercy-Argenteau developed a keen interest in Russian music from about 1880 and became one of its most ardent champions in the West. She was particularly close to César Cui, on whom she wrote a monograph. Her relationship with Anton Rubinstein is unexplored; the present dedication, however, demonstrates that she knew Rubinstein well before her acquaintance with the Russian nationalist composers.

An den namentlich nicht genannten Psychiater und Psychoanalytiker Hermann Nunberg und Gattin: "Meine Lieben | Die Ankündigung, daß wir Sie in diesem Sommer noch bei uns sehen werden, ist mit großer Befriedigung aufgenommen worden. Dabei bleibt es also. Uns geht es hier sehr gut, soviel besser als leider so vielen Anderen, für die man etwas thun möchte und selten etwas thun kann. Der Empfang in London war überaus freundlich, überraschenderweise nicht nur von Anhängern und alten bekannten gelehrten Gesellschaftern usw sondern auch von völlig Unbekannten, die ihre Freude ausdrücken wollten, daß wir in Sicherheit und in England sind. Wir wohnen in einem schönen Haus mit Garten und Aussicht in einen Park. Leider ist es nur eine provisorische Unterbringung, das endgiltige Heim muß unser Ernst erst finden [...]". - Mit gedr.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Kirchstetten, 28. VIII. 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.

        FAIRCHILDS-EVANSVILLE-E. KY. 1938-1941 [Cover Title] [Original Photo Album]

      Fairchilds, KY and Evansville, [IN], [ca. 1938-1941]. Hardcover. Near fine. Oblong folio album. Original (likely homemade) wooden covers with screw binding and brass hinges - measuring approximately 15.25" x 12". Containing 29 black paper leaves with 252 black and white, primarily snapshot photographs glue-mounted both recto and verso. Small title photograph to front cover torn, light handling wear to album exterior. A handful of images apparently perished. Otherwise about near fine throughout. A classic album of Americana with clear and sharp domestic, community, occupational and railroad themed images. Compiled by the Fairchilds family of Evansville, IN between 1938 and 1941, the patriarch appears to have worked in gas and oil exploration in and around the western Kentucky / southern Indiana / southern Illinois regions. Many named images of the men Fairchilds worked alongside as well as facilities located in Keensburg, IL, Centralia, IL, Cloverport, KY, and Edgar County, IL. A wonderful series includes approximately 20 interior and exterior views of a new family home located on Plaza Dr. in Evansville, and dozens of shots show downtown Evansville, its storefronts, signage, holiday festivities, and decorations. Several railroad photos and a handful from a trip to Washington, D.C. are also included. All images carefully framed with a strong aesthetic eye. Particularly striking are the many close-up portraits throughout rendered with an intimacy not typically seen in similar albums. An uncommonly well-composed and -constructed album of middle class life in the southern midwest at the tail-end of The Depression, just before the beginning of U.S. involvement in WWII.

        [Op. 81]. Friedenstag Oper in einem Aufzug von Joseph Gregor... Op. 81. Orchester-Partitur... Meinen Freunden Viorica Ursuleac und Clemens Krauss gewidmet. [Full score]

      Berlin W.: Adolph Fürstner (Inhaber Johannes Oertel) [PN A. 8360 F.]. 1938. Large folio. Original black cloth-backed publisher's gray printed boards. [i] (title), [ii] (statement of rights of performance, limitation statement), [iii] (cast list and list of orchestral instruments), [iv] (blank), [5]-266 pp. Title in facsimile of copyist's manuscript; music transferred from engraved plates. Printer's note to lower left corner of p. 266: "Stich u. Druck v. Oscar Brandstetter, Leipzig-Berlin." Text in German. Printed note to verso of title, completed in black ink: "Dieses Exemplar der Partitur Nr. [23] ist nur [zur leihweisen Benutzung] bestimmt. [Berlin, den 22. ?October 1938] [Handstamp:] als bevollmächtigter Vertreter des Herrn Dr. Richard Strauß [Adolph Fürstner]." Binding worn, rubbbed and bumped; upper stained; spine reinforced; endpapers creased. Minor stain to outer edge of title and following two leaves; stain to upper left corner of final leaf. . First Edition. Rare. No. 23 of an unspecified number of copies printed. Trenner 271. Mueller von Asow p. 949. Not in Hirsch or Sonneck. Worldcat locates only three copies in the United States and three copies in European libraries. In 1935 Otto Fürstner (1886-1958), the son of the company's founder, emigrated to England and sold the German share of his company to his long-term deputy, Johannes Oertel (1879-1961) while continuing his old business from London. Oertel continued to use the name of Fürstner; however, due to the change in ownership, many reference works and library catalogues list Oertel as the publisher, without reference to Fürstner. This pacifist work, the first of Gregor's libretti for Strauss, was first performed at the Bayerischen Staatsoper in Munich on July 24, 1938 under Clemens Krauss. Viorica Ursuleac (Krauss's wife) created the role of Maria. Gregor ranks next to Hofmannsthal in libretto output for Strauss. "Although [he] left important monographs on the history of ViennaÂ’s theatres, on Richard StraussÂ’s operas and on the broad cultural history of theatre and of opera, he is probably best known as the librettist of Richard StraussÂ’s Friedenstag (1938), Daphne (1938) and Die Liebe der Danae (1944). The collaboration began in 1935, after the anti-semitic climate in Nazi Germany had compelled StraussÂ’s librettist Stefan Zweig to break off his fruitful partnership with the composer." Erik Levi in Grove Music Online.
