        Schachnovelle.

      First Edition. 11 cm x 17.5 cm. 117 pages. Original hardcover with illustrated dustjacket in Protective Mylar. Excellent condition first edition with only very minor signs of external wear. Die Schachnovelle ist eine Novelle von Stefan Zweig, die er zwischen 1938 und 1941 im brasilianischen Exil schrieb. Es ist sein letztes und zugleich bekanntestes Werk. Die Erstausgabe erschien am 7. Dezember 1942 in Buenos Aires in einer limitierten Auflage von 300 Exemplaren. In Europa wurde das Werk im Dezember 1943 im Stockholmer Exilverlag von Gottfried Bermann Fischer verlegt. 1944 erschien in New York die erste Übersetzung ins Englische. In Deutschland hat sich das Buch seit dem Erscheinen der Taschenbuchausgabe 1974 zu einem Dauerbestseller entwickelt. Mittlerweile wurden weit über 1,2 Millionen Exemplare verkauft. Das Buch wird vielfach als Schullektüre verwendet und wird auch von einigen Literaturwissenschaftlern bis heute geschätzt, obwohl es in der wissenschaftlichen Germanistik nicht gleich stark rezipiert wurde wie von der breiten Öffentlichkeit. 2012 bezeichnete der Germanist Rüdiger Görner die Novelle als einen "Glücksfall ausgereifter Erzählkunst". Im Zentrum der Handlung steht die Konfrontation der psychischen Abgründe, die ein Gefangener der Gestapo erlebt hat, mit der oberflächlichen Lebenswelt wohlhabender Reisender in der Rahmenhandlung. Das Schachspiel spielt anfangs nur die Rolle einer bloßen Unterhaltung bzw. eines einträglichen Sports und erhält erst durch die Figur des Gefangenen Dr. B., der sich während seiner Haftzeit intensiv mit Schach beschäftigt hat, seine tiefere Bedeutung.

        How's Tricks

      The first British edition, a very rare early (1938 -- one year after his first book, Mulberry Street) appearance by Dr. Seuss, who supplied the art on the front of the rare dust jacket, and the frontispiece. The art, a drawing of a huge rabbit pulling a magician out of a top hat, bears Dr. Seuss's printed signature, and exemplifies his unique humor. Very rare in dust jacket, which is missing a one inch circular chip at the top of the front panel affecting the word "How's".

        (Photo album): Crookston, Minnesota

      Crookston, Minnesota, 1938. Fair. Octavo album. Spiral bound in flexible cloth wrappers. 121 gelatin silver images, various sizes, 3" x 4" probably being near the average. Many captioned in ink with dates and locations. The spirals are largely unspiraled, wrappers and some leaves chipped, about good; images are near fine. Album kept by a young woman, probably from Crookston, Minnesota, where many of the images are identified from, although some depict visits to realtively local areas (Bemiji, Grand Forks, N.D.) or vacations (Miami Beach and Lexington, Kentucky). The earliest images depict the compiler (usually identified as "Me") as a (probably high school) drum majorette, and later as a young wife (married to "John") and mother. Probably the largest percentage of identified images come from Crookston, and there are several images of the Crookston Pirates, a professional baseball team in the Northern League, with several players identified - it is possilbe that "John" was on the team. A pleasing albeit somewhat pedestrian album, in need of some modest preservation.

Jullien pour les années 1928 à 1931 et de Jean Chièze pour les années 1932 à 1938.Ces almanachs vivarois sont une des plus grandes réussites des Éditions du Pigeonnier. Ils parurent sans interruption de 1927 à 1938. Dans son avis au lecteur de 1927, Charles Forot présente ainsi son ambition, qu'il réalisera intégralement : "Nous aurions voulu un almanach populaire - mais comment, avec un franc à Chut ! Nous décidions de publier un almanach à tirage restreint, - hors commerce faute de mieux ! - un almanach essentiellement vivarois où se retrouveraient le goût du terroir, le charme de nos vieilles coutumes, le pathétique de notre histoire, l'âme de notre race et cela [ ] pendant douze ans, à partir de 1927. Chaque année nous consacrerions notre livret à l'un des mois : le premier à janvier, le second à février et quand nous aurions fait le tour du zodiaque, la collection serait complète."Ces almanachs sont une mine inépuisable de renseignements les plus divers sur l'Ardèche et les Ardéchois.On y trouve, outre les poésies des auteurs les plus aimés du Vivarais, une foule d'articles consacrés aux arts et traditions populaires par les meilleurs spécialistes de l'époque : César Filhol, Paul Paya, Joseph Conrazier, Arnold Van Gennep, Charles Forot, etc. ; des recettes de cuisine ardéchoises ; les principaux proverbes ; des textes en patois de Xavier Vallat, des anecdotes, des notices généalogiques, des études historiques, de très nombreuses biographies des hommes illustres ardéchois et les notices archéologiques inédites de Jean de La Laurencie."A la fin de chaque numéro, une rubrique "Arts, lettres et divers" faisait le compte-rendu de tous les livres vivarois, de toutes les conférences, de tous les spectacles, de toutes les distinctions, comme aussi hélas de tous les chers disparus."

Gesigneerd 'Jany' en gedateerd 'Bergen N.-H./ 22-xi-'61'. 32 regels tekst.l Poëtische en persoonlijke collectie brieven aan zijn schoonzuster, de kunstenares Annie Roland Holst-de Meester. In de eerste brief staat Roland Holst aan het eind van een persoonlijke crisis en het begin van een avontuur: om zijn sombere stemming te doorbreken was hij op 30 december 1937 aan reis door Italië begonnen.Hij schrijft vanuit een Italiaanse kustplaats dat de hem toegestuurde 'teekening van de hartenbrengende en gulgebibste engeltjes' zijn gemoed deed smelten, 'als alle wolken zooveel op bibsen leken als de jouwe, wat zou de beschouwing des heuvels dan een onrust in het bloed van den stilsten heilige teweeg brengen!' Serieus: 'Ik doof uit als het heimwee mij verlaat - tenminste, het heimwee, dat niet bepaald wordt door wat ook binnen den tijd. Dát was juist de reden van mijn vlucht - ik voelde, dat ik werd uitgehold en verschrompeld'. En: 'Gedurende die eerste twee weken van mijn onderweg zijn, liet eigenlijk alles wat ik deed of zag of ondervond mij leeg en onverschillig'.'Mocht je weer eens iets van jezelf naar dit nu zoo bar omstormde oord voelen uitgaan, scheep 't dan in op de inkt, tenzij je persé geen brief van mij meer wil krijgen, want die haal je er onvermijdelijk mee op je hals'.Over heimwee staat in de tweede brief meer: 'het heimwee (daar schreef je toen over) is nu eenmaal de alcohol in mijn levensdrank'. Vervolgens over de inrichting van zijn huisje (Roland Holst vond eindelijk een spiritusstel waarmee hij 'thee en scheerwater' kan verwarmen) en over het samenstellen van Uit zelfbehoud (1938) voor Stols ('wat nog een heel wikken en wegen eischte'). De dichter verheugt zich op de komst van een dichter-vriend: 'Over een week zoowat verwacht ik Marsman, die dan een dag of vijf bij mij wil blijven, waarna wij samen naar Sicilië hopen te gaan. Het zal mij vreemd zijn, eindelijk weer eens mijn eigen taal te spreken'. 'Ik voel nu ook heel sterk, dat dit zoo heeft moeten zijn - vandaar misschien, dat ik weg kon gaan, hoewel het letterlijk een losscheuren was'.In de derde brief complimenteert Roland Holst zijn schoonzus met haar nieuwe werk, waarvan hij enkele foto's heeft ontvangen: 'ik ben er verrukt van - het is verwonderlijk, dat je op een nog zoo nieuw gebied al dadelijk zooveel talent met een zoo intieme gevoeligheid kan doen samengaan!' Het gaat de dichter niet voor de wind: 'en langzamerhand ontwikkel je 'n soort koppigheid van "we zullen zien, wie 't langer uithoudt - de pech of ik"'.De vierde brief begeleidt een handgeschreven, ongepubliceerd gelegenheidsgedicht over 'Marjolijntje', een jonggestorven meisje. Roland Holst schreef het bij zijn ontbijt en is er blij mee: 'het lijkt mij ook uit katholiek standpunt heel aanvaardbaar - tot zelfs het woord "vroolijkheid", waar een protestant misschien tegen protesteeren zou'.In de laatste brieven geeft de dichter zich bloot. In de oorlogsbrief laat hij Annie weten dat hij het van haar moeder bijzonder lief vindt dat hem de wandelstok van haar vader wordt gegund, maar dit plaatst hem voor een dilemma: 'bijgeloof is nu eenmaal (en vooral in dézen tijd) erg dwingend in mij, al speelt mijn intelligentie er ironisch mee tegenover anderen, en ik durf geen oplossing aan, die niet door dat bijgeloof erkend wordt. Dat komt ervan als je innerlijke balans, na alle schommelingen, toch steeds weer doorslaat naar de kant van den primitieven mensch met al zijn conventies'. Hij accepteert de stok graag, zal hem trouw bewaren, maar kan en wil hem nooit gebruiken.In 1961 herinnert hij zich zijn moeder, die 'een heel beperkte natuur' had, maar onder gelukkiger voorwaarden toch 'tot een eigen bloei had kunnen komen'. Deze wat droevige brief eindigt met een 'zoen vol liefs'.

        Six puppet designs

      1938 - Six original paintings, all signed by the artist. This set of paintings vividly depicts six different puppets, each with caricatured features reminiscent of the traditional style of Punch and Judy: rosy cheeks, mitten-hands, and large eyes and mouths. The six images display a nurse with an infant, a jester, Santa Claus, two boys, and an African-American woman. The artist, Cherry Barr Jerry, worked with a variety of media throughout her career, delving into embroidery, sketches with charcoal, and other forms of decorative art. Her efforts grew out of her role as an art instructor in Racine, Wisconsin, operating under the Works Progress Administration's Federal Art Project program. Jerry's husband acted as director of the Racine Art Museum, then known as the Wustum Museum of Fine Arts. The paintings represent the beginning of a period in which art was a relief effort rather than a cultural touchstone. Each piece is housed in blue and beige matting and framed in gold. Some soiling to edges of images, minor wear to frames, else fine. (Three paintings measure 16 by 13 1/2 in. [406x343mm] in a 24 1/2 by 22-in. [622x559mm] frame. The other three measure 17 by 12 in. [432x305mm] in a 25 1/2 by 20 1/2-in. [648x521mm] frame). [Attributes: Signed Copy]

(GRUPPO TATA (nel 1980 Ennio Chiggio e Giulia Laverda aprono a Padova la galleria TOT, per la quale Chiggio cura, oltre a mostre sulle tendenze radicali del design contemporaneo come Ultramobile, Memphis, Alchimia, Gufram, le installazioni e ricerche concettuali sulla performatività del linguaggio ludico del gruppo TATA fondato assieme agli architetti Baruffi, De Santi, Rigo, Pavan, Zambon, agli artisti Garner, Pardini e al critico d'arte Ernesto Luciano Francalanci, con cui si unisce in un lungo sodalizio sia didattico che critico. Tale attività inizia con la pubblicazione del volume "Del Ludico" edito da Mazzotta e prosegue con una serie di libri oggetto prodotta dalle Edizioni Tot. L'esperienza collettiva dei Ludici siconclude nel 1988. Di questo operare si sono occupati lo storico Ernesto L. Francalanci docente a Venezia ed Annamaria Sandonà dell'Università di Padova. ENNIO CHIGGIO: Ennio Chiggio è attivo nelle arti figurative dal 1959, quando fondò con altri 'coautori' il gruppo Enne. Si è interessato di musica sperimentale, poesia visiva, design grafico e industriale, anche come docente. Nel 1980 ha dato vita con un gruppo di'intellettuali' a un cripto movimento ludico, il "Tataludico", che ha esplorato le possibilità del linguaggio nel rapporto tra percettivo e logico filosofico, dopo gli avvenimenti Dada e Fluxus. Questa esperienza è terminata nel 1988.)

        High Street

      The First UK Printing published by Country Life in 1938. The BOOK is in Very Good++ or better condition. Original pictorial paper covered boards showing only trivial wear to the spine ends and corners with a little loss and splitting at the rear spine fold ends only (This production is noted for its very fragile spine which often detaches). Very light toning to the spine. Spotting to end papers and prelims. Very light spots to the page edges for a few of the lithographs with the spotting a little more prominent to ' The Knife Grinder' lithograph but still very light. A lovely copy of a very fragile production. Cover illustrations and 24 full page colour lithographs by Eric Ravilious who began work on his 'High Street' lithographs in 1935 following a suggestion from Helen Binyon that he do an alphabet of shops. He deliberately sought out odd shops with special and often Victorian visual appeal as inspiration for the work. With the addition of text from Ravilious's friend, Jim Richards, what was produced was one of the most famous and iconic illustrated books of the twentieth century. The New Statesman wrote that the designs were 'so gay and vivid that they surprise the reader like the shops themselves when they light up on a foggy morning'. The book was never reprinted because the original plates were destroyed in a bombing raid in 1942 (in the same year Ravilious, who was a captain in the Royal Marines and an official war artist, was killed in action). Protected with a loose Mylar archival cover and housed in a custom black slipcase with a silk tie. Notoriously hard to find in such collectible condition due to its fragility. More images available on request. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact.
