        The Spanish war. A Monograph a Month. Number Sixteen.

      London, Fact, 1938.. 97 Seiten 8°, Taschenbuch. das Buch schiefgelesen, am Rücken und den Kanten sehr beriebe, vom Vorderdeckel fehlt unten rechts ein Stück, der Buchblock fleckig, ansonsten sauber und frisch, auf dem Titel vom Literaturnobelpreisträger signiert. Ernest Miller Hemingway (* 21. Juli 1899 in Oak Park/USA - + 2. Juli 1961 in Ketchum/USA) war einer der erfolgreichsten und bekanntesten US-amerikanischen Schriftsteller des 20. Jahrhunderts. 1953 erhielt Hemingway den Pulitzer-Preis für seine Novelle "Der alte Mann und das Meer" und 1954 den Literaturnobelpreis. Hemingway betätigte sich nicht nur als Schriftsteller, sondern war auch Reporter und Kriegsberichterstatter, zugleich Abenteurer, Hochseefischer und Großwildjäger, was sich in seinem Werk niederschlägt. Unter dem Vorbild von Mark Twain und Gertrude Stein entwickelte Hemingway einen modernen Klassizismus, dessen Markenzeichen eine besondere Kargheit des Stils ist. Hemingways Erzählverhalten ist lapidar. Er selbst begründete seinen Stil mit der von ihm genannten Eisberg-Theorie.

        Vertrag mit eigenh. U.

      O. O., 9. VI. 1938.. 2 SS. auf 2 Bll. Folio.. Interessantes Dokument zu der von Churchill letztlich nicht verfaßten "Geschichte Europas seit der Russischen Revolution" ("Europe Since the Russian Revolution"), eines der wenigen literarischen Vorhaben, die Churchill aufgegeben hatte. Wie aus dem Vertrag mit dem Verleger George Harrap hervorgeht, hätte Churchill für das Werk insgesamt eine Summe von 13,500 erhalten sollen, davon 1,500 bei Vertragsunterzeichnung, 2,000 bei Abgabe von Teil I, weitere 3,000 bei Abgabe von Teil II und 7,000 nach Abschluß des dritten Teils. Absatz 10 regelt, daß im Falle von Streitigkeiten oder Meinungsverschiedenheiten diese vor dem Schiedsgericht auszutragen wären - wo die Kontrahenten schließlich um 1943 auch landen sollten: Churchill, der durch den Ausbruch des Weltkrieges anderes zu tun gehabt hatte, als sich historischer Forschung zu widmen - "I suppose I have not read a dozen books in the last five years" -, argumentierte auch ganz in diesem Sinne, daß er jegliches Interesse an Europa nach der Russischen Revolution verloren hätte und daß überdies durch eine Geschichte Rußlands aus seiner Feder eine Gefährdung der kriegsbedingt notwendig gewordenen Allianz mit Stalin nicht von der Hand zu weisen sei. Auch neuerliche Anläufe Harraps zu noch großzügigeren Konditionen führten zu keinem Ergebnis, so daß Harrap schließlich im September 1944 sich eingestehen mußte, daß es, gleich ob sein Verlag nun im Recht sei oder nicht, unangenehm sei, einen Prozeß mit einem Mann zu führen, dem jeder von ihnen so viel schulde ("it is distasteful to us, whether we are right or not, to litigate this matter with a man to whom every one of us is so much indebted", zit. in: Reynolds, In Command of History, SS. 19-20). Die erste Rate seines Honorars zahlte Churchill freilich zurück; mit Harrap sollte er keinerlei Geschätsbeziehung mehr eingehen, seine Kriegserinnerungen "The Second World War" erschienen bei Macmillan und Cassells. - Bl. 1 von Churchill eh. paraphiert, Bl. 2 mit den Unterschriften von Churchill und seinem Verleger sowie von dessen Sekretärin; etwas angestaubt und eingerissen.

        Vom Leben der Plastik. Inhalt und Schönheit des Werkes von Georg Kolbe LUXUSAUSGABE in G A N Z L E D E R von O T T O D O R F N E R

      Berlin um 1938 Rembrandt-Verlag GmbH. Vollständige Ausgabe in aufwendig hergestelltem Handeinband der Zeit (echter Ganzfranzband, hellbraunes Maroquin-Leder / Ganzleder / Leder im Format 21,5 x 26,3 cm) mit Rücken- und Deckeltitel in Blindprägung, dezenter Dekoration der Deckel (blindgeprägte Linien), Kopfgoldschnitt, handgestochenem Kopfband, Lederhäubchen und lederne Innenfälze und Linienvergoldung des Spiegels. 111Seiten, mit 95 Fotoabbildungen auf Kunstdruckpapier sowie einem Anhang: Kurzer Lebenslauf von Georg Kolbe - Denkmäler und öffentlich ausgestellte Werke - Werke in Museen (Deutschland /Ausland) - Schriften über Kolbe - Fotonachweis. - Aus der Reihe "Kunstbücher des Volkes". - Siebente Auflage in makelloser Erhaltung, in handgefertigte Klapp-Kassette, diese mit Molton gefüttert. Bestens erhaltener Prachtband aus der Werkstatt des brühmten Buchkünstlers Pro.Otto Dorfner / Weimar. - "Warum handgebunden? - Die wesentlichsten Vorzüge des guten Handbandes sind: Die einzelnen Druckbögen werden mit der Hand nach dem Schriftspiegel gefalzt. Die Bogenränder werden dadurch zwar ungleich, aber das Satzbild steht gerade. Um infolge der ungleichen Ränder ein späteres zu starkes Beschneiden mit der Maschine zu vermeiden, werden die Bogen einzeln, vorne und unten, mit der Pappschere auf ein Mittelmaß rauh beschnitten. Dadurch wird der Druckrand weitestgehend geschont. Als erste und letzte Lage wird dem Buche zum Schutze eine leere Papierlage hinzugefügt, welche mit einem feinen Leinen- oder echten Japanpapierfalz versehen ist. Geheftet wird der Handband nach sorgfältiger Auswahl des Heftzwirnes auf echten erhabenen oder aufgedrehten flachen Bünden und auf Pergamentriemchen (welche beim Pergamentbande durch den Rücken gezogen werden). Bei Dünndruckpapier werden die Lagen zum Heften leicht vorgeritzt. Ein Einsägen oder gar Einraspeln der Bünde findet nicht statt. Oben wird das Buch beschnitten und erhält nicht nur der Schönheit willen Goldschnitt, sondern diese feine Metallschicht schützt vielmehr die dem Lichte und Staub am meisten ausgesetzte Schnittfläche vor deren schädlichen Einflüssen. Die Deckel werden in einem tiefen Falz angesetzt, mit den Bünden nach außen. Ein Herausreißen aus der Decke ist somit nur unter Zuhilfenahme von Werkzeug möglich. Zum Kapital wird kein schlappes maschinengewebtes Bändchen verwendet, sondern das Kapital wird von Hand mit dem Buchblock umstochen, gibt dadurch dem Rücken einen festen Abschluß und bietet zugleich dem späteren Ledereinschlag ("Häubchen") die Unterlage. Als Einbandmaterial kommen sumachgares, lichtechtes Saffian, Kalbleder, vereinzelt auch Rindsleder, ferner naturelles und weißes Schweinsleder sowie Kalbspergament zur Verwendung. Ein mit der Hand hergestelltes, dazupassendes Überzugpapier sowie Handvergoldung oder Blinddruck am Rücken ergänzen das Werk nach außen. Ein solcher Einband entspricht allen Anforderungen, die an einen Gebrauchsband gestellt werden können." Aus einem alten Prospekt von Richard Hönn, ehemals Handbinderei des Verlages Albert Langen, Werkstatt für feine Buchbinder- und Lederarbeiten in München. - Meistereinband, Handeinband, Kunstbuchbinderei, Prachtausgabe, Vorzugsausgabe, Deutsches / Drittes / Großdeutsches Reich, Großdeutschland, Reichsgericht im Nationalsozialismus, Rechtsfortbildung und Rechtswissenschaft im Dritten Reich, deutsches / nationalsozialistisches Rechtswesen, NS.-Gesetze und Verordnungen, Reichsgerichtspräsident aus Pommern gebürtig, deutsches Straßenverkehrsrecht der 30er Jahre, NS-Bürokratie, Staatsrecht, volksgenössisches / öffentliches Recht, deutsche Gesetzgebung, völkisches / nationalsozialistisches Rechtsdenken / Gedankengut Buch.

        Bauhaus 1919-1928.

      New York, The Museum of Modern Art [MOMA] 1938.. 4°. 224 SS. Reich illustriert mit sehr zahlreichen Abbn. teilw. a. Tafeln. Schriftsatz zweispaltig. OLn. (gelb; Kanten u. Gelenke min. stockfleckig, Rücken im Fuss mit Spuren einer entfernten Etikette) mit farb. gepr. (R-) Titel in Schwarz resp. Rot und Schwarz. Erste Ausgabe (Originalausgabe) / Original Edition. Leichtere Alters- u. Lagerungs-, wenig eigentliche Gebrauchsspuren. Gesamthaft gutes Exemplar.. Deckeltitel: Bauhaus Weimar 1919-25, Dessau 1925-28. - Typography and cover design by Herbert Bayer. - "It is twenty years since Gropius arrived in Weimar to found the Bauhaus; ten years since he left the transplanted and greatly enlarged institution at Dessau to return to private practice; five years since the Bauhaus was forced to close its doors after a brief rear-guard stand in Berlin. Are this book, then, and the exhibition which supplements it, merely a blated wreath laid upon the tomb of brave events, important in their day but now of primarily historical interest? Emphatically, no! The Bauhaus is not dead; it lives and grows through the men who made it, both teachers and students, through their principles, their philosophies of art and education. It is hard to recall when and how we in America first began to hear of the Bauhaus. [..] It may not have been until after the great Bauhaus exhibition of 1923 that reports reached America of a new kind of art school in Germany where famous expressionist painters such as Kandinsky were combining forces with craftsmen and industrial designers under the general direction of the architect Gropius. A little later we began to see some of the Bauhaus books, notably Schlemmer's amazing volume on the theatre and Moholy-Nagy's 'Malerei, Photographie, Film'. [..] This book on the Bauhaus is published in conjunction with the Museum's exhibition, 'Bauhaus 1919-28'. Like the exhibition it is for the most part limited to the first nine years of the institution, the period during which Gropius was director. For reasons beyond the control of any of the individuals involved, the last five years of the Bauhaus could not be represented. During these five years much excellent work was done and the international reputation of the Bauhaus increased rapidly, but, fortunately for the purposes of this book, the fundamental character of the Bauhaus had already been established under Gropius' leadership. This book is primarily a collection of evidence: photographs, articles and notes done on the field of action, and assembled here with a minimum of retrospective revision. It is divided in two parts: Weimar, 1919-1925, and Dessau, 1925-1928." (etc., Alfred H. Barr, in: Foreword, p. 7 u. 9). - Teil I u.a. mit einem Kapitel 'The Theory and Organization of the Bauhaus, by Walter Greopius (Weimar 1923)'. - Enthält u.v.a. einen Beitrag zur modernen Typographie 'typography workshop' von Herbert Bayer (pp. 148-153), mit Anmerkung im Inhaltsverzeichnis "As explained on page 149 this and following sections of the book are printed without capital letters in accordance with Bauhaus typographical practice introduced in 1925 (Contents, p. 5). - Mit: 1. Biographical Notes (von Josef Albers bis Laszlo Moholy-Nagy), 2. Bibliography of Bauhaus Publications (1919-1938, 32 Titel), 3. Index of Illustrations by Artist's Names (von Anni und Josef Albers bis Werner Zimmermann). -- Walter Gropius (Berlin 1883-1969 Boston USA), deutscher Architekt, Gründer und Leiter des Bauhauses von 1919-1928. "1934 emigrierte Gropius ein Jahr nach der Zwangsschließung des Bauhauses durch die Nationalsozialisten an seinem letzten Standort in Berlin nach England und 1937 weiter in die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika nach Cambridge. Dort arbeitete er als Professor für Architektur an der Graduate School of Design der Harvard University. Seit 1938 war er dort Leiter der Architektur-Abteilung. Im selben Jahr organisierte er die Ausstellung 'Bauhaus 1919-1928' in New York." (http://bauhaus-online.de/atlas/personen/walter-gropius ). - Herbert Bayer (Haag, Oesterreich 1900-1985 Santa Barbara USA), österreichischer Fotograf, Typograph, Gestalter und Designer. 1921-1925 Ausbildung am Bauhaus; nach "dem Umzug des Bauhauses nach Dessau berief Walter Gropius ihn dort 1925 zum Jungmeister. Von 1925 bis 1928 war er Leiter der am Bauhaus Dessau neu gegründeten Werkstatt für Druck und Reklame. [..] 1938 emigrierte Bayer in die Vereinigten Staaten und lebte in New York. Im selben Jahr gestaltete er die New Yorker Ausstellung 'Bauhaus 1919-1928'. Auch die 30 Jahre später organisierte Ausstellung in Stuttgart '50 Jahre Bauhaus' entstand nach seinem Design. In den Vereinigten Staaten war er hauptsächlich als Maler, Werbegrafiker und Ausstellungsgestalter für zahlreiche Firmen und Institutionen tätig."

        Instructions for Models Standard IIIA & 250 and Accessories

      Sussex: Hove Camera Company, n.d.. Sussex: Hove Camera Company, n.d.. Reprinted. Paperback. Very good copy. Small 4to. Paper-bound. Pp. 64. Also included is a genuine Leica IIIA rangefinder camera, made by Ernst Leitz of Wetzlar, Germany, in 1938. The serial number is 278201 and was one of 19,850 made that year. The model IIIA began to be produced in 1935 but was suspended during the War, then resumed until 1948. In design it was identical to the III which had introduced slower shutter speeds, lugs for carrying the camera, and an increased rangefinder magnification to 1.5x. The main addition to the IIIA was the shutter speed of 1/1000th. The lens on this camera, which is collapsible and has a bayonet mount, is the Summar 50 mm, 1:2. It was manufactured between 1933 and 1940, and has the serial number of 422174. A lens cap is present. The camera is in very good condition, except for the black leather which is split and partially separated from the body. Also, some of the leather around one lug is missing. The shutter works on all speeds. Over, it is an impressive camera and would be a nice addition to any collection of these remarkable cameras. Further information, and pictures, available on request.

        Our Town: A Play in Three Acts

      New York: Coward McCann, Inc, 1938. New York: Coward McCann, Inc, 1938 First edition, first printing. Publisher's olive cloth, with blue labels lettered in white to the front board and spine, typography designed by Robert Josephy; in the original pictorial dust jacket, illustrated with a drawing by A. E. Fisher. A near fine copy, with some light wear to the spine ends, a hint of toning to the spine, extremely clean interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some toning to the spine, a few short closed tears to the extremities, minor chipping to the spine ends, slight loss to the top corner of the rear panel, bright and clean panels. Overall, a tight and clean copy. Our Town is Wilder's "first length play to be presented on the professional stage." A three act drama, Our Town is set in the town of Grove's Corners, New Hampshire, which serves a microcosm of small-town American life, and depicts scenes from the town's history and the everyday lives of its inhabitants from 1900-1913. It was first produced in Princeton, New Jersey, at the McCarter Theater on January 22, 1938, and in New York at the Henry Miller Theatre on February 4 of the same year. Our Town continued on to Broadway, received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1938, and continues to be successfully revived today. "A moving story with overtones of great beauty and understanding," the play is produced without a set and lacking props, relying instead on the metatheatrical narration by the "stage manager," the "woman in the balcony," and a "man in the auditorium.". 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        While England Slept

      New York: G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 1938. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good. This is the precursor to Churchill's great war speeches. Collector worthy jacketed copies of the first U.S. edition, first printing are now quite scarce. Here is one. The British first edition was given the politically palatable title "Arms and the Covenant". The U.S. title is a bit more honest. The book contains a collection of speeches spanning the years 1928 to 1938 criticizing British foreign policy and warning prophetically of the coming danger. The world remembers the resolute war leader to whom the British entrusted their fate, but it is easy to forget the years leading up to the war which Churchill spent persistent, eloquent, and largely unheeded. Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods called this edition "probably the most crucial volume of speeches that he ever published". As testimony to the book's importance, a copy of While England Slept lay on "President Roosevelt's bedside table, with key passages, including an analysis of the president's peace initiative, underscored." (William Manchester's The Last Lion, Volume II, p.305) Offered here is a near-fine plus first edition, first printing in a very good plus, first printing dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with perfect silver lettering and red banners and no soiling or blemishes. Wear is trivial, confined to tiny bumps at the lower corners and upper rear hinge. The contents are clean and tight. No spotting.

        An album of 25 bromoil prints of Central Australia, individually captioned and signed (Hugo Keil ARPS) in pencil on the wide bottom margins; undated, but early 1940s? The images (195 x 245 mm or the reverse) are tipped onto album leaves (rectos only); these are cord-bound into the cloth-covered album (now slightly rubbed and marked); they are in uniformly fine condition

      - The Northern Territory Archive Service has an album containing the same twenty-five images, captioned but apparently unsigned. The catalogue record for that album (NTRS 3050) states that 'Hugo Keil was a photographer who worked at the Appropriation Ledger Section of the Allied Works Council in Alice Springs during the Second World War. Hugo gave this wonderful album of Central Australian images to Phyllis Prideaux (later Johnson), which has come into NTAS as part of the Phyllis Johnson collection. Hugo took many photographs of Central Australian scenes, including images of Mount Gillen, the Hugh River, Palm Valley and the Spotted Tiger Mine at Harts Range'. An article in the Barrier Miner (28 October 1938) makes mention of a forthcoming 'exhibition of Bromoil Prints by Hugo Keil of the Crown Studios, Adelaide', and a review in the Adelaide Advertiser (21 August 1940) of The Adelaide Camera Club's exhibition of pictorial photography notes that ' Hugo Keil shows fine timber, sharply etched in "Grandeur of the North"'.

        While England Slept

      New York: G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 1938. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Very good. This is the precursor to Churchill's great war speeches, a collector-worthy copy of the first U.S. edition, first printing in dust jacket. The British first edition was given the politically palatable title "Arms and the Covenant". The U.S. title is a bit more honest. The book contains a collection of speeches spanning the years 1932 to 1938 criticizing British foreign policy and warning prophetically of the coming danger. The world remembers the resolute war leader to whom the British entrusted their fate, but it is easy to forget the years leading up to the war which Churchill spent persistent, eloquent, and largely unheeded. Churchill bibliographer Frederick Woods called this edition "probably the most crucial volume of speeches that he ever published". As testimony to the book's importance, a copy of While England Slept lay on "President Roosevelt's bedside table, with key passages, including an analysis of the president's peace initiative, underscored." (William Manchester's The Last Lion, Volume II, p.305) Here is a near-fine plus copy in a very good plus dust jacket. The book itself is a particularly clean and bright example. The blue cloth binding is square, clean, and tight, with sharp corners, bright silver lettering and red banners, and virtually no wear. Searching for flaws, we find only trivial wrinkling of the cloth at the spine ends and a tiny blemish to the cloth on the front cover. The contents are particularly bright and clean. Even the untrimmed fore edges are especially bright, showing almost none of the typical age-toning to which they are prone. We find absolutely no previous ownership marks and no spotting. The red-stained top edge shows very slight sunning, but retains strong, even color. The dust jacket is unclipped, retaining the original $4.00 front flap price and is highly complete, with only fractional chipping at the spine ends. We note modest wear to the edges and spine, a scuff mark at the upper front corner, a smaller scuff at the bottom left of the author's portrait, and light scuffing to the spine. Nonetheless, spine presentation is notable, retaining bright color, with only barely discernable color shift between the front face and the spine. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A107.2.a, Woods/ICS A44(b.1). Langworth p.193.
