        Portraitskizze eines Kindes, in Original Pastell-Kreide hinter Passepartout und Glas gerahmt,

       August 1941. 37x47, schönes signiertes Blatt. Wilhelm Schnarrenberger (* 30. Juni 1892 in Buchen im Odenwald; † 12. April 1966 in Karlsruhe) war ein deutscher Maler. Wilhelm Schnarrenberger zählt zu den Vertretern der Neuen Sachlichkeit. Er ist der Sohn eines Gymnasialprofessors und machte 1911 sein Abitur. Von 1911 bis 1915 besuchte er die Königliche Kunstgewerbeschule München und studierte parallel in München Architektur. Ab 1913 war er Schüler des Gebrauchsgrafikers Fritz Helmuth Ehmcke und ein Freund von Karl Rössing. 1918 wurde er zum Dienst im Ersten Weltkrieg eingezogen. Er war 1919 für die Zeitschrift Der Weg und ab 1920 für die Zeitschriften Wieland und Simplicissimus tätig. Schnarrenberger unterrichtete von 1921 bis 1933 an der Badischen Landeskunstschule. 1924 war er Gründungsmitglied der ORNA-Werkstätten für Werbung und Innendekoration. Unter den Nationalsozialisten war seine Kunst verpönt und wurde 1937 als entartet gebrandmarkt und verboten, nachdem er bereits seit 1933 nicht mehr unterrichten durfte. 1933 übersiedelte er mit seiner Familie nach Berlin, wo er versuchte, als freischaffender Gebrauchsgrafiker seinen Lebensunterhalt zu verdienen. Den bevorstehenden Krieg voraussehend zog er 1938 nach Lenzkirch im Schwarzwald, wo er zusammen mit seiner Frau Melitta (1909-1996) eine kleine Ferienpension eröffnete. Hier entdeckte er das für sein späteres Werk so wichtige Thema des Stilllebens. 1947 wurde er zum Professor an die Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Karlsruhe berufen. 1962 erhielt er für sein künstlerisches Werk den Hans-Thoma-Staatspreis. Schnarrenberger legte stets auf das handwerkliche Können seiner Schüler großen Wert, so mussten diese zuerst das Zeichnen von architektonischen Gebäuden und Alltagsgegenständen erlernen, bevor er sie malen ließ. Wilhelm Schnarrenberger war der ältere Bruder des Generalmajors der Wehrmacht Ernst Emil Schnarrenberger (* 27. Juli 1893 in Buchen im Odenwald; † 10. Juni 1966 in Bad Mergentheim).[1][2].

        Raskens. En soldatfamiljs historia. I-II. Elfte upplagan.

      Stockholm; Bonniers, 1941. (Vår egen tids bästa moderna svenska berättare, utvalda av Radiotjänst). 19x13 cm. 210 & (4, 1 blank), 212-380 s. Två volymer i förlagets tryckta linneband. Pärmhörnen lätt tilltryckta. Fina inlagor. Dedikation i första volymen: ''Till Kristina med tillgivenhet från hennes Vilhelm''. Mottagaren Kristina Odelberg/Hedenblad (1917-2005) hade under 40-talet och möjligen även senare en kärleksaffär med Moberg, som döpte Kristina i Utvandrarserien efter henne. Kärleksaffären upptäcktes via en svit om 30 böcker som Moberg dedicerat till henne. I exemplaret av Utvandrarna (1949) skriver han: "Till Kristina, min älskade, som lånat sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i denna bok, med tacksamhet och kärlek från Författaren", ett intyg som upprepas så sent som 1969 i pocketupplagan av Utvandrarserien: " Den 29/3 1969. / Till Kristina -- hon som givit sitt namn åt den kvinnliga huvudpersonen i utvandrarromanen och till Minnet / med innerlig tillgivenhet från Författaren", vilket visar att hon var fullt närvarande i hans tankevärld under hela denna tid och därmed mycket väl kan ha påverkat hans senare litterära produktion. Vad som ytterligare talar för detta är exemplaret av Vår ofödde son, en pjäs från 1945 som behandlar abort-problematik. Detta är den enda av böckerna som Kristina låtit binda in i ett påkostat rött skinnband, med en pärmficka längst bak där hon samlat tidningsartiklar om boken och dess författare. I Kristinas exemplar av den danska utgåvan av samma bok, utgiven 1947, finns en dedikation från översättaren: "Kaera Kristina! / Denne Bog, den til Dels handler om dig, sendes dig til Erindring -- ikke om Forfattaren, men om Oversatteren. / Din Carl Erik''.

        The Black Cat (Original screenplay for the 1941 film)

      Universal Pictures, Universal City, CA 1941 - Draft script for the 1941 film. The 1941 version of "The Black Cat" is neither a remake of Edgar G. Ulmer's 1934 Karloff-Lugosi film of the same name, nor does it bear much relation to the Edgar Allan Poe story (though, in fairness, neither did the 1934 version). It is more of a horror-comedy affair than its predecessor, with Broderick Crawford and Hugh Herbert in the lead, Bela Lugosi reappearing (now in the more minor role of "Eduardo"), and Basil Rathbone ably handling the part of the shady Mr. Hartley. Shot by the legendary Stanley Cortez of "Magnificent Ambersons" fame. (Hal Erickson, Rovi)Gray titled wrappers, noted as FILE COPY on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped production No. 6856, dated January 29, 1941. 91 leaves, mimeograph, dated variously between 5/23/40 and 6/1/40. Pages Near Fine. Wrappers Very Good plus or better, with slight toning and a few short creases and tears at the extremities, a small faint stain on the front wrapper, and a professionally repaired vertical tear at the rear wrapper, bound with three gold brads.

The rare dustjacket a little dusty but unclipped and in very good condition. The Volume itself in Near Fine condition with only minor signs of external wear. Minor signs of spotting and foxing only. SIGNED by Alfred O'Rahilly on the endpaper ! Signed editions of this book are very scarce ! Includes for example the following chapters: The Evolution of Money / The Evolution of Banking / Bank-Money / The British Banking System / The Central Bank / Savings / International Trade. Alfred O'Rahilly (1 October 1884 ? 1 August 1969) was a noted academic, president of University College Cork and a Teachta Dála (TD) for Cork City. Born in Listowel, County Kerry and educated at St. Michael's College, Listowel, and at Blackrock College in Dublin, O'Rahilly went on to third level education at University College Cork, where he completed an MA and PhD. After a course in scholastic philosophy at Stonyhurst, during which he secured his D.Phil, he was appointed assistant lecturer in the Department of Mathematics and Mathematical Physics in 1914, and made full Professor of Mathematical Physics in 1917. He became Registrar of the college in 1920, and held the post until 1943 when he became President of the University. He spent a year, in 1927, at Harvard studying social and political theory. Cork University conferred on him the degree D.Litt in 1939 and in the same year his massive work on Electromagnetics obtained for him the degree D.Sc. O'Rahilly founded the Cork University Press in 1931. After the 1916 Easter Rising, O'Rahilly publicly supported Sinn Féin and was elected to Cork City Council as a Sinn Féin and Transport Workers candidate. Arrested early in 1921 for political writings, O'Rahilly was interned in Spike Island prison. Released in October 1921 he was constitutional adviser to the Irish Treaty Delegation. O'Rahilly supported the Anglo-Irish Treaty and in 1922 he composed a draft constitution for the Irish Free State with Darrell Figgis. O'Rahilly lead Irish delegations to the International Labour Organization conferences in 1924, 1925 and 1932, and took on conciliatory role in trade union and employers disputes in Munster. Standing as a candidate in Cork Borough for Cumann na nGaedheal, he was elected to the 4th Dáil at the 1923 general election. He resigned in 1924, causing a by-election which was won by the Cumann na nGaedheal candidate Michael Egan. A deeply religious Catholic from early life, O'Rahilly was a member of the Society of Jesus but left before ordination and was dispensed from his vows. He maintained his (sometimes controversial) religious views throughout his life, and became a priest, and then Monsignor, in later years following the death of his wife. He wrote a biography of Fr. Willie Doyle SJ - which was subsequently translated into other languages. In 1954, Pope Pius XII conferred on him the Pontifical Order of Saint Gregory the Great, the highest distinction awarded by the Pope to Catholic laymen. He was also an advisor on university education to the Archbishop of Dublin John Charles McQuaid and sat on an informal committee from 1950. The committee included O'Rahilly, and the other presidents of the National University of Ireland; Michael Tierney of UCD, Monsignor Pádraig de Brún, Cardinal D'Alton, and Bishops Cornelius Lucey of Cork and Michael Browne of Galway. O'Rahilly wrote a major survey of electromagnetic theory, Electromagnetics. He opposed Maxwell's dominant (British) theory of the electromagnetic field and followed the French Catholic physicist, historian of science, and philosopher of science Pierre Duhem in rejecting Maxwell's field account. As a logical consequence of his rejection of Maxwell, O'Rahilly also rejected Einstein's theory. O'Rahilly embraced Ritz's ballistic theory of light and Ritz's electrodynamics. While Ritz's theory reduces to Coulomb's Law and Ampere's Law, since its derivation is phenomenological, it differs from the Lienard-Wiechert potential. O'Rahilly also wrote against applying the theory of evolution to human society. Because O'Rahilly thought Cork lacked a social science curriculum he volunteered to teach courses in economics and sociology. When told that they could not spare him from the physics courses, he volunteered to teach an economics course and sociology course along with his physics courses.(Wikipedia)

        THE GRAPES OF WRATH. (OF MICE AND MEN)

      NY: Random House, 1941. First Modern Library Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. . NY: Random House, 1941. First Modern Library edition. Worn dustjacket (supplied), cloth stained and soiled (mostly at spine and not affecting internals), still solidly bound. Inscribed by Steinbeck to Moss Hart on the half title: For Moss Hart this book is touchingly inscribed - with pleasure and gratitude for Lennie knows what. John Steinbeck. Lennie is the key word that links Steinbeck to Hart, as Lennie Small is the tragic character in Of Mice and Men, and it is Moss Hart's principal collaborator, George S. Kaufman, who adapted the novella with Steinbeck for the stage in 1937. The inscription, unfortunately undated, can be no earlier than 1941 (when this edition was published) so it was not executed at the same time Steinbeck and Kaufman worked together. The back story for the inscription is provided by journalist and radio producer Don Swaim, resident of Bucks County and chairman of the Writer's Workshop there, on his excellent website. Bucks County was a favorite area for "country homes" for Manhattan writers, artists and "theater people" in the 1930s-1950s. Moss Hart and his wife Kitty Carlisle owned Fairview Farm in Holicong and Kaufman and his wife Beatrice were not far away at their estate, Cherchez La Farm. Steinbeck had written most of the short novel Of Mice in Men in dialogue form and he thought it would be easy to adapt to the stage. Kaufman had secured the stage rights. Steinbeck had written an adaptation but Kaufman saw that it needed immediate work, as the play was to be staged that fall. He invited Steinbeck to join him at his farm where in the later part of August 1937 they rewrote together Of Mice and Men. The degree to which Kaufman re-shaped the play is an open question. A comparative analysis by Jackson J. Benson in The Short Novels of John Steinbeck: Critical Essays With a Checklist to Steinbeck Criticism suggests that, even though the dialogue is about 80% directly from the novella, the narrative drama of the stage version was partly achieved by expanding the dialogue of Curley's wife, mistakenly killed by Lennie, and making her more sympathetic. The play opened in November to critical acclaim, edging Our Town for the Drama Critics Award, and spawned a successful movie version two year later. Steinbeck tired of the New York scene and returned to California to write The Grapes of Wrath. He never commented or wrote publicly about his experience with Kaufman, although in his later years well after Kaufman's death, he consistently credited Kaufman with the play's success. Still, Steinbeck's experience with Kaufman in August 1937 could not have been easy. He had written Of Mice and Men almost as a 'play-novella" and likely anticipated an easy transfer from page to stage. Thus, the inscription raises many questions for Steinbeck biographers and scholars. Had Steinbeck, commiserated with Hart, as the inscription suggests, who was just down the road from Kaufman about Hart's partner's reworking of his work? ("Damnit, Moss, what is George doing with my story?") Does Steinbeck refer to Lennie because he wanted to "protect" his tragic figure from Curly's wife becoming more sympathetic in Kaufman's hands? Is the reference to Lennie an allusion to how no one, perhaps even Steinbeck himself, could understand what was going through the mind of a person like Lennie? The inscription is also distinctive in that it is not common for Steinbeck to make explicit references to characters in his books in his inscriptions. No matter how dear the character Lennie may have been to Steinbeck and whatever Steinbeck meant in the inscription, this discovery surely is a vital artifact of Steinbeck's career and of American stage and film history both. (The provenance of the book is clear. By the late 50s, Kitty Carlisle had grown tired of the maintenance of the Bucks County farm and wanted to spend more time in New York and, in an eagerness to return to her and Moss' Manhattan apartment on a per.

        Home Guard Manual of Camouflage

      First edition, first printing; original boards and illustrated dust jacket. A presentation copy, inscribed on the front free end paper, "A Brunius ce n'est pas ce qu'on voulais cette cachoterie militaire mais je souhaite a vous et Mary des annees plus lumineuses que 1941 Roland Penrose." Loosely inserted is a postcard from Penrose to Brunius, inviting him to a surrealist meeting and dinner at the Barcelona Restaurant, Beak Street, W1A, dated 9th May 1940. As a Quaker, Penrose had been a pacifist, but after the outbreak of the War he volunteered as an air raid warden and then taught military camouflage at the Home Guard training centre at Osterley Park. This led to Penrose's commission as a captain in the Royal Engineers. He worked as Senior Lecturer at the Eastern Command Camouflage School in Norwich, and at the Camouflage Development and Training Centre at Farnham Castle. During his lectures, he used to startle his audiences by inserting a colour photograph of his partner Lee Miller, lying on a lawn naked but for a camouflage net; when challenged, he argued "if camouflage can hide Lee's charms, it can hide anything". His lectures were respected by both trainees and colleagues and lead to the publication of this work, which provided accurate guidance on the use of texture, not only colour, especially for protection from aerial photography. Jacques Brunius, was a French actor, director and writer. Assistant director to Luis Buñuel on L'Âge d'or, he appeared in more than 30 movies. Member of the surrealist group in France and then in England, with his friend Roland Penrose. He was a staunch defender of surrealism. This fragile book was printed to wartime standards in small numbers and is now scarce. Fine in a very good dust jacket, which is a little spotted and has a chip to the spine, not affecting the lettering. Small attractive book plate of John Lyle, the writer on and collector of Surrealism.

        "Comenius, the English Revolution, and Our Present Plight". Typed Manuscript Signed. London, 1941.

      1941. 4to. 7 pp. on 7 ff. In honor of his Czech heritage, Kokoschka writes on the contributions of John Amos Comenius (Komenský in Czech, 1592-1670), a religious refugee, pioneer in education, and one of the earliest champions of universal education. Comenius believed in the role of science in society and promoted his belief that the enlightenment of mankind was ahead. Kokoschka's essay compares the life and work of Comenius, specifically when he visited England in 1641, to the present time of post-war reconstruction and how universal education must still be the most important goal of society. His essay begins, "The visit of [...] Comenius [...] evokes our particular interest to-day because official voices are now encouraging the aim of re-making the foundations of the social order, just as they were on the eve of the English Civil War when the famous exile paid his visit to England [...]". - Kokoschka presents information on England in the 17th century, saying "there was [...] no fear of foreign ideas [...] Mystical strains [...] awoke again in the social unrest [...] existing order [...] had come into opposition [...] with this Christian principle of the human dignity of the individual". He comments on Comenius' thought, "Salvation is at hand - through education", and presents his own views on how education suffered after World War I. Kokoschka felt that as Comenius believed in fighting illiteracy, that fight needed to be continued now. - "Mass education seems sometimes to have been a failure. But Comenius' plan has not yet been realized. The resolve of the democratic peoples that this crusade against Fascism shall not again fade out [...] can perhaps best be furthered by focusing attention on the problem of how to free the individual by removing the primary cause of his bondage, that is, education for national ends [...] With the break-up of the middle-ages, nationalism rose to a position of dominance over all human affairs. Nationalism has made the tone of popular thought sometimes inhuman [...] superhuman, but never [...] normal and human. We need a covenant on the guiding principles of of [sic] rational education [...]". - His essay ends with an appeal. "Democracy underrates the growing complacency and despair of the backward masses [...] The essential principle of his [Comenius] educational plan translated into modern language demands from world Democracy an international scientific control of mass-education by a board of internationally minded educational experts and scientists [...] A World Education Board [...] would be the greatest instrument ever forged in the interest of world democracy, and thus indeed a realisation of Komensky's [Comenius] highest aims". - Kokoschka then signs in full with place and date. Rust stain and small tear at top of first page. Published in 1942 in "The Teacher of Nations: Addresses and Essays in Commemoration of the Visit to England of the Great Czech educationalist Jan Amos Komensky, Comenius". Edited by Joseph Needham (Cambridge University Press).

        THE GRAPES OF WRATH. (OF MICE AND MEN)

      Random House, NY 1941 - . NY: Random House, 1941. First Modern Library edition. Worn dustjacket (supplied), cloth stained and soiled (mostly at spine and not affecting internals), still solidly bound. Inscribed by Steinbeck to Moss Hart on the half title: For Moss Hart this book is touchingly inscribed - with pleasure and gratitude for Lennie knows what. John Steinbeck. Lennie is the key word that links Steinbeck to Hart, as Lennie Small is the tragic character in Of Mice and Men, and it is Moss Hart's principal collaborator, George S. Kaufman, who adapted the novella with Steinbeck for the stage in 1937. The inscription, unfortunately undated, can be no earlier than 1941 (when this edition was published) so it was not executed at the same time Steinbeck and Kaufman worked together. The back story for the inscription is provided by journalist and radio producer Don Swaim, resident of Bucks County and chairman of the Writer's Workshop there, on his excellent website. Bucks County was a favorite area for "country homes" for Manhattan writers, artists and "theater people" in the 1930s-1950s. Moss Hart and his wife Kitty Carlisle owned Fairview Farm in Holicong and Kaufman and his wife Beatrice were not far away at their estate, Cherchez La Farm. Steinbeck had written most of the short novel Of Mice in Men in dialogue form and he thought it would be easy to adapt to the stage. Kaufman had secured the stage rights. Steinbeck had written an adaptation but Kaufman saw that it needed immediate work, as the play was to be staged that fall. He invited Steinbeck to join him at his farm where in the later part of August 1937 they rewrote together Of Mice and Men. The degree to which Kaufman re-shaped the play is an open question. A comparative analysis by Jackson J. Benson in The Short Novels of John Steinbeck: Critical Essays With a Checklist to Steinbeck Criticism suggests that, even though the dialogue is about 80% directly from the novella, the narrative drama of the stage version was partly achieved by expanding the dialogue of Curley's wife, mistakenly killed by Lennie, and making her more sympathetic. The play opened in November to critical acclaim, edging Our Town for the Drama Critics Award, and spawned a successful movie version two year later. Steinbeck tired of the New York scene and returned to California to write The Grapes of Wrath. He never commented or wrote publicly about his experience with Kaufman, although in his later years well after Kaufman's death, he consistently credited Kaufman with the play's success. Still, Steinbeck's experience with Kaufman in August 1937 could not have been easy. He had written Of Mice and Men almost as a 'play-novella" and likely anticipated an easy transfer from page to stage. Thus, the inscription raises many questions for Steinbeck biographers and scholars. Had Steinbeck, commiserated with Hart, as the inscription suggests, who was just down the road from Kaufman about Hart's partner's reworking of his work? ("Damnit, Moss, what is George doing with my story?") Does Steinbeck refer to Lennie because he wanted to "protect" his tragic figure from Curly's wife becoming more sympathetic in Kaufman's hands? Is the reference to Lennie an allusion to how no one, perhaps even Steinbeck himself, could understand what was going through the mind of a person like Lennie? The inscription is also distinctive in that it is not common for Steinbeck to make explicit references to characters in his books in his inscriptions. No matter how dear the character Lennie may have been to Steinbeck and whatever Steinbeck meant in the inscription, this discovery surely is a vital artifact of Steinbeck's career and of American stage and film history both. (The provenance of the book is clear. By the late 50s, Kitty Carlisle had grown tired of the maintenance of the Bucks County farm and wanted to spend more time in New York and, in an eagerness to return to her and Moss' Manhattan apartment on a per.

        Correspondence archive. Various places, 1941-1989.

      1941. A quantity of some 155 letters and postcards, including several addenda (postcards, clippings, photographs, etc.). To Oskar Haaf, head of the entertainment department at the German radio station Südwestfunk Baden-Baden, and to his wife Ria. A copious collection of about 93 autograph or typed letters, 15 folded lettercards, and 47 postcards and photographs, with several addenda. - Trenker's friendship with the broadcaster Haaf, which dated from the prewar years, intensified in the 1960s when the busy mountaineer and film maker began to concentrate on lectures, documentaries, and wide and varied appearances on radio and television. The numerous letters and postcards offer a lively account of their collaboration (including a long Trenker feature which entails a discussion about the classical music to be used), but also provide a narrative of the many years in which Trenker, ever bustling with activity, produced scripts, songs, radio shows, and much more. Among the subjects of the correspondence are Karajan and Kokoschka (whom he criticises), the memoirs of Tilla Durieux (which he is reading), Ennio Morricone (whom music for "Once Upon a Time in the West" he praises), and his forged Eva Braun diaries (which he disowns). The collection expands the well-known image of Trenker as a popular mountaineer, showing him as an intelligent, active, and well-read man fully abreast with current developments even in his old age. - Occasional edge damage; some letters with punched holes.
