        Lettres à une amie.

      Manchester, Éditions du Calame, 1942, in-8, br., couv. à rabat, non rogné, XI-124 pp. (M.31) Recueil de quarante-et-une lettres inédites adressées à Marie Nordlinger. 1899-1908. Édition originale, illustrée de deux portraits contrecollés. Un des 225 hollande, seul grand papier, non coupé. Exemplaire exceptionnel car celui de la destinataire des lettres. En effet, la notice en tête du livre est signée M. R. (pour Marie Riefsthal, née Nordlinger). L'exemplaire est d'ailleurs signé par elle. Il porte aussi les signatures d'Eugène Vinaver, "professeur de langue et littérature françaises à l'Université de Manchester" et de César Sfeir "savant directeur des éditions du "Calame" qui, en assurant le déchiffrement et la disposition typographique de ces lettres, m'ont permis de les publier sous la forme présente". Marie Nordlinger-Riefstahl 1876-196 1. "Par une de ces exceptionnelles coïncidences que la vie accorde parfois aux humains, elle était cousine de Reynaldo Hahn, et Reynaldo Hahn était l'ami de Marcel Proust. Ainsi se noua, un soir de décembre 1896 [...] une amitié qui devait avoir des conséquences si enrichissantes pour tous les deux que Marcel aimait à voir dans cette rencontre l'effet d'une harmonie préétablie. [...] on devine quelle admirable et attentive correspondante dut être Marie Nordlinger. N'est-ce pas elle qui envoya à Marcel, privé de la vue des fleurs par son asthme, de ces "comprimés" japonais qui s'ouvrent dans l'eau et que les lecteurs de Swann connaissent bien (Lettre XVIII) ? Échelonnées sur dix années (1899-1908), ces lettres ont fourni aux chercheurs bien des détails précieux sur la période de formation où fut traduit Ruskin et rédigé Jean Santeuil. Tout d'abord surtout littéraire, cette correspondance s'épanouit en une causerie de plus en plus tendre." En 1952, elle fit don de ses lettres à la Bibliothèque Nationale ; ce fut la première correspondance de Proust à y être déposée. En 1957, elle reçut la Croix de Chevalier de la Légion d'Honneur. (Liliane Fearn, "Marie Nordlinger-Riefstahl". In Bulletin de la Société des amis de Marcel Proust..., n° 112, 1962, pp. 485-49 0). Marque d'appartenance "Nicolette Boillot, 1942". Cette Française s'engagea auprès du Général de Gaulle, le 1er juillet 1940. Nous joignons un article ("Nicolette Boillot, une vie". In C'est-à-dire. Le Journal du Haut-Doubs, 29 août 2011) qui lui est consacré."Nous sommes brusquement à Manchester, en février 1942. Marie Riefesthal, née Nordlinger, publie là-bas, en français, des lettres de jeunesse de son ami Marcel Proust. Elle l'a beaucoup aidé, autrefois, à traduire Ruskin. Cela se passait à Venise. Faut-il insister sur ce 1942 ? Je crois. On lira, avec un serrement de cœur, ce billet dicté par Proust le 6 décembre 1905 : "Monsieur Marcel Proust est en traitement dans une maison de santé où il est défendu d'écrire, mais il tient à ce que Mademoiselle Mary sache qu'il n'a jamais cessé de penser à elle avec tendresse, respect et reconnaissance." (in Catalogue de la librairie Nicaise, n° 3, décembre 1997, p. 30).Couv. tachée avec mouillure au dos.

        L'Art d'aimer.

      1942Paris, Editions de la Tradition, 1942, in-8 en feuilles, sous chemise souple rempliée puis chemise cartonnée sous étui, dos en simili parchemin comprenant le nom de l'auteur, le titre, le nom de l'illustrateur et le nom de la maison d'édtion, 173 pages. Tirage limité à 650 exemplaires, tous sur Ingres vergé d'Arches à la forme; exemplaire n°217 comprenant une aquarelle originale de Paul-Emile BECAT signée en bas à droite, p.73 représentant, vraisemblablement Ulysse et Calypso enlacés. Illustré de 24 pointes sèches originales en couleurs par Paul Emile Bécat, protégées de serpentes. Traduit du latin par HEGUIN de GUERLE. Ovide, né en 43 avant J-C, est un poète latin du siècle d'Auguste. Dans ce long poème, Ovide conseille, dans "L'art d'aimer", les hommes sur leur apparence physique, afin qu'il puissent séduire les femmes. Ses écrits sont une des causes de son exil par l'empereur Auguste. Ses affirmations sont illustrées d'exemples précis venant de la mythologie. L'auteur ne néglige rien sur l'art de l'amour et de la séduction. L'art d'aimer est un des textes érotiques les plus connus du monde. Paul- Emile BECAT (1885-1960) , peintre, graveur et dessinateur français, se spécialise dès 1933, dans la technique de la pointe sèche qu'il met au service de textes érotiques et galants. Notre aquarelle originale dévoile avec beaucoup de délicatesse le talent de l'artiste à illustrer ce petit bijou de la littérature latine sur une étreinte d'Ulysse et de Circé. Légères usures et déchirures à l'étui.

        SIX CARTES AUTOGRAPHES A NORA AURIC.

      Six cartes autographes inter-zones adressées par Georges Auric à sa femme Nora Auric à Antibes en juin 1942. Six cartes timbrées à l'effigie du Maréchal, couvertes d'une fine écriture et signées Georges. Auric est à Paris sous une chaleur écrasante où il travaille à la musique du film de Delannoy L'assassin a peur la nuit d'après Véry, «un très bon film et qui doit avoir beaucoup de succès» Il a «retrouvé la petite table et le bureau, le piano et le papier à musique - et les anxiétés que tu connais!» Pour être au calme, Cocteau lui a suggéré de s'installer à Ville d'Avray chez Peignot «qui a sur l'étang, la maison de Corot» Sa vie mondaine est toujours aussi remplie: dîner avec Francis Poulenc (charmant et exquis), avec les Pierre Colle chez Maxim's, au Coucou avec Cocteau «toujours égal à lui-même, tout plein d'histoires de tous genres» qui lui a demandé de lire le «découpage de L'Eternel Retour, le film que Jean veut faire dans quelques mois ...et pour lequel il y doit y avoir, paraît-il, une partition considérable», avec les piliers du Crapouillot (Galtier-Boissière, Devaux, Dignimont, Desnos), avec Suzanne Peignot, avec Christian Dior... Après avoir lu L'Eternel Retour, il juge qu'il y a «une partition extraordinaire à écrire!» Il qualifie d'«abject» un article de Vlaminck [dans Coemedia] contre Picasso, «celui-ci sort grandi singulièrement de toute cette boue. Mais cependant, quelle mélancolie de voir la bassesse d'un artiste qu'on pouvait ne pas aimer - mais qu'on n'avait aucune raison de mépriser.» Le tout est accompagné des petites nouvelles d'usage. Joint une carte inter-zone dactylographiée de MM. Gaveau à Auric chez Mme Chadourne [Georgette] à Antibes pour lui rappeler de payer le prix de location d'un piano du 16 novembre 1941 au 15 août 1942. Bel ensemble.

        Canto di memorie.

      1942 - Bologna, Libreria Antiquaria, Mario Landi, 1942. PRIMA edizione di 150 copie numerate (+ 100 fuori commercio). In 16mo (cm. 19,8); copertina originale; pp. 31, (1). Compagno di studi di Silvio D'Arzo e di Pier Paolo Pasolini, Serra aveva insegnato italiano in diversi istituti. Ha scritto numerosi saggi su Pasolini. A Luciano Serra, Francesco Leonetti, Roberto Roversi e P.P. Pasolini, risale l'esperienza poetica di "Eredi", culminata nella pubblicazione nel 1942 per l'editore Mario Landi di Bologna di quattro distinte raccolte poetiche, esordio lirico per Pasolini con le sue folgoranti Poesie a Casarsa e per Serra con il suo Canto di memorie. Ma fu soprattutto con Serra, e con la sua famiglia residente a Bologna in via Arienti 33, considerata quasi una seconda casa, che Pasolini intrecciò uno speciale legame affettivo e confidenziale, tanto che, una volta trasferito a Casarsa durante la guerra, indirizzava a lui solo le lettere collettive da far recapitare agli altri amici. Serra, poi, collaborò anche a due delle rivistine friulane dell'infaticabile amico friulano - lo "Stroligut" dell'aprile 1946 e il "Quaderno romanzo" del 1947 - con due saggi sul "Minor Friuli" di Ippolito Nievo e sui racconti della Percoto. Le diverse esperienze esistenziali avrebbero poi portato su strade diverse i due confidenti e poeti, ma l'eco di quella amicizia giovanile  consegnata a tante testimonianze, soprattutto epistolari, rimaste ininterrotte tra i due dal 1941 al 1953.

        The Fun of The Fair.

      Barstow, CA & London: Published by the O.T.O. (printed at the Chiswick Press, London),, 1942. (Nijni Novgorod, 1913 e.v.) Octavo, pp. 24. Original grey wrappers printed in red, stitched as issued. Frontispiece portrait of Crowley. Discreet book label of Morry J. Hart on verso of front wrapper. Light peripheral toning to covers. An excellent copy, complete with the errata slip (tipped to the half-title) and the mimeographed poem at the end (entitled "Landed Gentry"). First and limited edition, number 23 of 200 copies signed flamboyantly by the author below his frontispiece portrait. The Fun of the Fair is Crowley's long but colourful poem describing the famous Nizhni Novgorod Fair, held from the mid-sixteenth century up until 1929, a vital centre for trade that attracted merchants from India, Iran and Central Asia. "Crowley ceremoniously published The Fun of the Fair at 11.31 a.m. on 22 December [1942]. One of its first buyers was Ivan Maiskii, Soviet ambassador. The Fun of the Fair's publication nearly thirty years after composition [in 1913] was apparently an effort to persuade people the new Russian ally was not going to eat them. Or was it published to persuade others Crowley was sympathetic towards Russia? The Fun of the Fair had a sting in its tail. Having failed to get Britain's only communist MP, George Gallagher, to read it in the House, Crowley put his scathing attack on the snobbish hypocrites who obstructed victory at the end of the booklet: 'The Landed Gentry'... Vintage Crowley" (Tobias Churton, Aleister Crowley The Biography: Spritual Revolutionary, Romantic Explorer, Occult Master - and Spy, 2011, p. 399). Apparently about half the edition remained unsigned at the time of Crowley's death in 1947 and only a proportion were issued with the mimeographed poem "Landed Gentry", which, with its anti-establishment slant and in the light of strict wartime censorship laws, was rebuffed by a number of printers. Crowley then hit upon the idea of having a mainstream printer - the Chiswick Press - produce the book, while having a jobbing printer produce "The Landed Gentry". He then had the poem tipped-in to the back cover of some copies. These copies with the extra poem tend to be those that were distributed in Britain during Crowley's lifetime. Crowley may well have had Byron's Don Juan in mind when penning this picaresque epic: "Beyond the block of shops there is a square/ Containing the diversions of the fair./ The usual thing - monkeys, two-headed brats,/ A Lion-tamer, wrestlers, acrobats,/ Nothing of note; but here the sons and daughters/ of misery had set up their headquarters" (stanza 29).

        FILM STRUCK

      Montreal: The Montreal Standard, 1942. Edition Not Stated. Paperback. Very Good/No Jacket as Issued. Montreal: The Montreal Standard, 1942 Offered is the only known copy of Sheilah Graham's lost 1941 Hollywood novel(la), FILM STRUCK. There are no copies listed on Worldcat or in any online library resource, and I have combed Canadian archives, paper and magazine hoards and dealers in search of another to no avail. Bibliographies list no novels or novellas from Graham between 1935 and 1958 (Beloved Infidel). Nor does Graham mention it in her own published works. Whether this work has been simply lost or (more likely) intentionally repressed is unknown. Neither the Archives at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, nor the Sheilah Graham papers at Princeton include this item. It was copyrighted by Graham on December 12,1941, but never published in book format, and was only published in America as a newspaper serial. This tabloid publication as a complete novel insert in the Montreal Standard is its only known complete state publication format and this is possibly the only surviving copy. Canadians took their wartime paper drives seriously. Published 1942 in Montreal, Canada as a 12 by 16 inch tabloid novel insert. P. 12. Formatted in four columns of small font type per page, (approx. 30,000 words total). Cover and one other illustration credited B. T. Note that the cover graphic contains a microphone and an old-time movie camera as well as the starlet whose features seem to mirror those of Graham in her prime. Condition is clean and complete Near Very Good with light edge wear and light uniform paper tanning noted. No paper loss but some light creasing noted. A light vertical fold is visible on all pages. Sheilah Graham Westbrook (Born Lily Shiel to a Ukrainian Jewish family in London, later wedded to three husbands Graham, Westbrook and Wojtkiewicz ) was the most famous and successful Hollywood columnist through the golden age of screen. Her Hollywood Today was published over 35 years in 180 newspapers. She was also the intimate companion of F. Scott Fitzgerald from summer 1937 to the time of his demise on December 21, 1940 at 1443 North Hayworth Avenue. This item will generate a couple of theses amongst Fitzgerald scholars. Fitzgerald's final heroine in Love Of The Last Tycoon, his unfinished Hollywood novel, is based on Graham. After the trauma of Scott's death in her presence, Graham returned to England, working for North American Newspaper Alliance John Wheeler before returning to Hollywood. Later liaisons with A. J. Ayer and Robert Taylor are said to have produced her two children Wendy and Robert, and created conjecture with some historians as to her possible involvement with the secret services and/or the House Committee on Un-American Activities witchhunts. But maybe it's all gossip. "In a Hollywood where nearly everyone is eaten alive the gossip columnists are the fattest cats in town." Sheilah was known to use her feminine wiles to her advantage with Hollywood moguls, movers and/or personages that struck her fancy (Eddie Mannix, Robert Taylor, Robert Benchley, etc.). Her weekly columns could make or break stars. Her honesty or sources were often suspect. She was a frequent companion to Marilyn Monroe in the early 50s. She retired to Palm Beach and died there in 1988.The theme of Film Struck centres on a would-be-starlet trying to navigate the path to stardom and maintain some integrity. The cover tagline is: "Here is the story of a beautiful girl who suffered agony to win success in filmland and then had to face the choice between love and a career. Did she make the right decision?" It is certainly critical of the studio system and the Hollywood of the day. The novel(la) opens with a gala premiere attended by Cagney, Colbert and all the stars, where the film struck young heroine Livia first meets the handsome young stuntman hunk for Mammoth Studios, Bruce. Successive chapter titles include: Visions of Fame, Screen Test, Artistic Temperament, From Glamour to Glimmer, Unwelcome Publicity, Another Proposal, Woman's Privilege and Rocky Road to Stardom. Sheilah's writing quality seems a bit fluffy-- light romance, not Fitzgerald. The archtype Hollywood characters, scenes and locales are present and accounted for: Ciro's, starlet extras, terminally alcoholic directors and writers, spoiled temperamental leads, dirty money from drugs and Santa Anita, producers with immense power and wandering eyes, The Brown Derby, slimy managers, drugs, gambling, money laundering and blackmail, murdered father figures, yacht weekends with poker to Catalina, ranches in San Fernando Valley, Garden of Allah, daytrips to Santa Barbara. etc. Graham is always attuned to scandalous behavior. Quotations include: "Ambitious girls in Hollywood did not refuse the admiration of an important director - unless they were making a play for an important producer." "If I were directing this scene you'd fling your arms around my neck and you'd say, "Why Daddy, I recognized you right away." or "A memory of Earl Dixon with the band and wanting them to play "Eroica" in memory of a great man made her relent." (the Hollywood historians and Fitzgerald scholars will have a field day with this one - and many others- as "Eroica" was reportedly playing at Scott's death. The Fitz scholars will be checking every word for associations with Love of the Last Tycoon, which was completed after his death by Edmond Wilson, also in 1941, and who was on excellent terms with Graham.)

Oblong photo album, 6" x 7.25", 23 leaves with color postcards and black and white photos mounted on each, a majority accompanied by manuscript annotations in Japanese; green padded cloth; covers a little worn at corners, else very good. The upper flyleaf indicates that this is the album of a member of the Kwantung Army, meant to record his impressions of Manchuria during his deployment and spanning July 1941 to October 1942. He remarks on women, the Lunar New Year, local production, Northern Manchuria, and so on. At one point he appears to mention that as strong as the Chinese may be, they can't defeat the Japanese sword.

        Before the Military Commission Convened by the Commanding General, United States Army Forces, Western Pacific, 1 October 1945 / Charge / United States of America vs Tomoyuki Yamashita.

      - ++Ethnic Cleansing, the Philippines and Singapore and General Yamashita, 1942-1945++ "Before the Military Commission Convened by the Commanding General, United States Army Forces, Western Pacific, 1 October 1945 / Charge / United States of America vs Tomoyuki Yamashita." Offset printed, stapled bound. 13x8". In two sections, composed of 27 leaves, in two sections. ++Section One: Charges and affadavit, 2pp; Press Release concerning General Yamashita, 2pp; Press release of Defense Counsel Staff, 2pp; Trial of General Yamashita, list of Prosecutor and assistants, 4pp; Biographical Notes on General Officers, 2pp. Section Two:Bill of Particulars (which has the true depth of the charges against Yamashita), 8pp; Supplemental Bill of Particulars, 7pp.+++ This is a rare offset printing of the statement of charges and “outline of particulars” against the Japanese Imperial Army General Tomoyuki Yamashita (1885-1946), a man accused of war crimes against humanity. After he was captured 2 September 1945, General Yamashita was arraigned principally for failing to control his troops, segments of which had acted brutally in their treatment of residents of captured Singapore and against British Empire soldiers. He was charged with “unlawfully disregarding and failing to discharge his duty as a commander to control the acts of members of his command by permitting them to commit war crimes." This was in direct violation the doctrine of “command responsibility” which was established by the Hague Conventions IV (1907) and X (1907), and—after in re Yamashita—would also become known as the “Yamashita standard”, in which courts clearly accepted that “a commander’s actual knowledge of unlawful actions is sufficient to impose individual criminal responsibility”. Yamashita would be found guilty by the U.S. Military Tribunal and was sentenced to death, for "vengeful actions are widespread offences and there is no effective attempt by a commander to discover and control the criminal acts, such a commander may be held responsible, even criminally liable." It was a death sentence for a crime of omission. (As early as the 6thcentury BCE, Sun Tzu, in his Art of War, stipulated that it was a commander's duty to ensure that his subordinates conducted themselves in a civilized manner during an armed conflict.) Getting back to the war: after Yamashita captured Singapore in February 1942, accepting the surrender of General Arthur Percival and 100,000+ British Army soldiers, a steel wind policy was instituted, with thousands of people—soldiers and civilians—finding their end at the point of Japanese soldiers’ bayonets. Chief among the atrocities was the Sook Ching movement, a concerted, pervasive and prolonged ethnic cleansing of Singapore of anti-Japanese “undesirable” elements. Among these groups were included (and this list is taken from a rather good contribution to the dubious Wikipedia):Persons who had been active in the China Relief Fund; Rich men who had given most generously to the Relief Fund; Adherents of Tan Kah Kee, leader of the Nanyang National Salvation Movement; Hainanese, who were believed to be communists. China-born Chinese who came to Malaya after the 1937 Sino-Japanese War Men with tattoo marks, who were believed to be members of secret societies, specifically Triads Persons who fought for the British as volunteers against the Japanese. Government servants and men who were likely to have pro-British sympathies, such as Justices of the Peace, and members of the Legislative Council. Persons who possessed arms and tried to disturb public safety. +++In short, it didn’t take all that much to be considered for elimination, and a long and frozen fear and ruthless hearts-and-minds- campaign was instituted which lasted until the Philippines were finally liberated. And it was for the Japanese actions in the Philippines, and then principally in Manila, that General Yamashita was tried, despite the effects of his long and terrible. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      Berlin, Braunschweig, Hamburg, Bonn, Essen u. a. 11. IX. bis 2. I. 1957. -, Wien 1942 - Zus. 126 S. in versch. Formaten. - Dazu: 29 Schreiben von Stephanie Scherner, Dorschs Assistentin und Chauffeuse aus den Jahren 1953-56. - Beilieg. 76 eigh. und bzw. oder masch. Umschläge überwieg. von K. Dorsch. An ihre Berliner Freunde, den Schauspieler Fritz Alberti (1877-54) und dessen Frau Elisabeth. Sehr temperamentvoll und bisweilen undiplomatisch verfaßte Korrespondenz, die einen interessanten Einblick in das Berufsleben der berühmten und vielbeschäftigten Burgschauspielerin gibt. So erwähnt Käthe Dorsch große Erfolge in wichtigen Rollen (u. a. Mutter Wolffen in G. Hauptmanns Biberpelz - "In zwei Tagen fangen die Proben an, und ich habe den Dialekt noch nicht im Gaumen!", - Elisabeth in Schillers Maria Stuart u. a.), äußert sich mit wenig Zurückhaltung über die Leistung ihrer tlw. berühmten Kollegen (Gustaf Gründgens, Viktor de Kowa, Werner Krauss, Paula Wessely, Else Bassermann - ". und das wird auch nicht besser, sie vergißt nachwie vor jeden Tag was. Das Rätselraten bei mir ist nur immer, was es heute wieder wird ."), erwähnt Filmprojekte, aber auch tagespolitische Ereignisse wie die Ungarnkrise, die ihr unfreiwillig Flüchtlinge als Hausgäste beschert, ihre immer wieder angeschlagene Gesundheit (Angina pectoris, Neuralgien, Gallenentzündungen), Besorgungen und Reparaturen im Zusammenhang mit dem Haus in Berlin-Lichterfelde u. a. Besonders interessant ein Schreiben über die Ohrfeige, die Käthe Dorsch 1956 dem österreichischen Theaterkritiker Hans Weigel vor oder in seinem Wiener Stammcafé verabreicht hatte. - (Wien, 18. IV. 1956): "Nun komme ich aber zu meinem Knatsch hier - meiner Premiere ist gut vorbeigegangen. Ich war an der Generalprobe besser als in der Premiere - das gibts ja, es war Föhn, ich hatte Kopfschmerzen und war überdreht - hatte aber trotzdem glänzende Kritiken . Nur ein Mann - eben der Gewatschte fand dass ich markierte, und agierte wei eine Diva bei der Verständigungsprobe und der 300. Vorstellung. - Nun, das konnte ich doch nicht schlucken und so hats geknallt . Die Wiener und meine Kollegen stehen geschlossen hinter mir, weil dieser Mensch seit Jahren das Burgtheater und die Schauspieler in einer Art und Weise terrorisiert, die unbeschreiblich ist ." Hans Weigel strengte einen medienwirksamen Prozeß an, in dem Käthe Dorsch zu 500 Schilling Strafzahlung verurteilt wurde. - Beilieg. einige Zeitungsausschnitte und Schriftstücke im Zusammenhang mit der Ohrfeigen-Affäre u. a. - Interessantes und umfassendes biographisches Material zu der Schauspielerin, die vor allem die Bühnen in Wien und Berlin für Jahrzehnte mit ihrer Darstellungskunst prägte. - Mit leichten Lagerungsspuren. 900 g.

        THE BUFFALO BOX

Light offsetting to front and rear pastedown sheets caused by bleeding of binder's glue, else a near fine in dust jacket with a faint vertical crease to the front cover and a miniscule chip to bottom edge of foot of spine. Gruber knows his pioneer history very well and uses this knowledge to bring us a fine mystery with the tragedy of the Donner Party as its basis. An old prospector turns up at book collector Simon Lash's office and claims to be Lansford Hastings, author of THE EMIGRANT'S ROUTE TO OREGON AND CALIFORNIA, and wants Lash to find the owner of a redwood box carved in an intricate design of buffaloes. Simon knows that Hastings was considered partly responsible for the Donner Party tragedy and also that he had died some seventy years previously. Lash isn't much impressed with Hastings until he learns that the buffalo box was carved by Isaac Eckert, a very wealthy member of the Donner Party who died in the snowbound pass. Later that same day an attractive female, who claims to be Eckert's descendant, tries to sell a copy of THE EMIGRANT'S ROUTE in a secondhand bookstore, Lash becomes more interested in spite of himself. A well-preserved World War II book complete with Gruber's patriotic war message on back panel of the dust jacket.

        Deutscher Faustkampf nicht pricefight. Boxen als Rasseproblem. Mit einem Vorwort von Max Schmeling

      München, Zentralverlag der NSDAP., Franz Eher Nachfolger, 1942. Vollständige Ausgabe im original Verlagseinband (Broschur / Kartoneinband im Format 12,3 x 19 cm) mit Deckeltitel, 102 Seiten, Schrift: Fraktur. - Aus dem Vorwort von Max Schmeling: \"Kein Geringerer als unser Führer Adolf Hitler hat den charakterbildenden Wert des Boxsportes erkannt und sich deshalb dafür eingesetzt, daß die heranwachsende deutsche Jugend im Faustkampf ihrem Mut erprobt und stärkt...\" - Mit einem geschichtlichen Rückblick: \"Der öffentliche Zweikampf mit den Fäusten vor einer Zuschauermenge war im Vorkriegsdeutschland bekanntlich verboten. Als dann die feige Novemberrevolte dem ruhmreichen Frontheer die unbefleckte Klinge aus der Hand schlug und die Truppen unbesiegt aus dem Felde zurückkehrten, da brachten zivilgefangene deutsche Matrosen, unter ihnen Hans Breitensträter, gewisse Boxkenntnisse in die Heimat mit, die sie sich in einem englischen Internierungslager angeeignet hatten. Die damalige Regierung hob das Boxverbot auf. Man hätte nun annehmen sollen, daß diese Leibesübung, die den kämpferischen männlichen Tugenden unseres Volkes voll und ganz zu entsprechen schien, breiteste Schichten ohne Unterschied des Standes und der Person im Sturmlauf gewinnen werde. Leider kam alles wieder einmal anders. Die Novembermänner, die es fertig gebracht hatten, im Jahre 1918 unsere alte stolze Armee, jene anerkannt beste Schule der Jugendertüchtigung, zu zerschlagen, diese verj... Schädlinge und Kreaturen wollten ja gar nicht den Boxsport zum Volkgut werden lassen! Sie, die selber keine Ehre besaßen, hatten niemals ein Interesse daran, im Volke Ehrgefühl und Heroismus zu fördern, denn dann hätten sie ja die längste Zeit in ihren bequemen Sesseln gesessen. Das Boxen war ihnen daher lediglich Mittel zum Zweck. Es wurde vom rein geschäftlichen Standpunkt aus betrachtet und diente vielfach dazu, die Sensationsgelüste einer blutwitternden Menge aufzupeitschen, wie das zu Zeiten des Niedergangs schon häufig in der Geschichte war. Ich denke dabei nur an die Eisenfaustschläger der Griechen oder an die Gladiatoren während des Sittenverfalls im alten Rom, die sich zur Wollust entarteter Herrscher und im Beisein eines entmenschten Pöbels auf Leben und Tod bekämpfen mussten. Spricht es nicht Bände für die ungeheuerliche sportliche Verantwortungslosigkeit der Nachkriegszeit, daß man die Polsterung der Handschuhe für Berufskämpfer bis auf das bedenklich dünne Polsterungsgewicht von 4 Unzen herabsetzte, während nach den internationalen Bestimmungen allgemein 5 Unzen als Norm galten.?Adolf Hitler hat es fertiggebracht, was die anderen jemals weder gewollt noch konnten: er hat das Boxen weltanschaulich und gedanklich im Volke verankert. Die von ihm eingesetzte Reichssportführung begann mit eisernem Besen auszufegen, um dann desto gründlicher wieder aufzubauen. Sie beseitigte den ewigen Zwiespalt zwischen Amateuren und professionals und schuf somit endlich eine einige deutsche Boxbewegung. Diese Bewegung nahm bald gigantische Ausmaße an...\"- Erstausgabe in guter Erhaltung - Sport im Nationalsozialismus, Preisboxer, arteigener Faustkampf, Schlüssel zum Faustkampf Boxen unabhängig von fremd rassischen Schulen und auf der Wurzel arischer Geisteshaltung und Seelenstruktur, Sportskameraden, Vorherrschaft der amerikanischen Kampfesweise, englischer Stilboxer, Boxkämpfer unter Bejahung der deutschen Rasseeigenheiten, deutscher Boxstil, Boxschule, geschichtliche Entwicklung des Boxstils, Ernährung für Boxer, Bodenübungen, Muskeltoilette, Lockerungsübungen, Lauftraining, Schlagtechnik bei Geraden, Konter als wirkungsvolle Waffe, rechter und linker Haken, Aufwärtshaken öffentlicher Zweikampf mit den Fäusten, deutscher Boxsport, Boxsportliteratur, völkisches / nationalsozialistisches Gedankengut, Adolf Hitler als Sportsfreund, der Führer als Freund des Boxens bzw. des Boxsports Versand D: 5,90 EUR Sport im Nationalsozialismus, Preisboxer, arteigener Faustkampf, Schlüssel zum Faustkampf Boxen unabhängig von fremd rassischen Schulen und auf der Wurzel arischer Geisteshaltung und Seelenstruktur, Sportskameraden, Vorherrschaft der amerikanischen Kampfesweise, englischer Stilboxer, Boxkämpfer unter Bejahung der deutschen Rasseeigenheiten, deutscher Boxstil, Boxschule, geschichtliche Entwicklung des Boxstils, Ernährung für Boxer, Bodenübungen, Muskeltoilette, Lockerungsübungen, Lauftraining, Schlagtechnik bei Geraden, Konter als wirkungsvolle Waffe, rechter und linker Haken, Aufwärtshaken öffentlicher Zweikampf mit den Fäusten, deutscher Boxsport, Boxsportliteratur, völkisches/nationalsozialistisches Gedankengut, Adolf Hitler als Sportsfreund / Freund des Boxens
