It brought the work of German political geographer General Karl Haushofer to the United States in the midst of World War II, years before the cold war necessitated America's re-examination of geostrategy in earnest. Today much less well-known than geostrategists such as George Kennan and Henry Kissinger, Strausz-Hupe nevertheless managed to make quite a mark on American politics and diplomacy. The Foreign Policy Research Institute think-tank he established continues to this day, publishing the international affairs journal Orbis.

        We of the Never-Never

      London, Hutchinson, 151st thousand [1942]/ 1908. Octavo, 248 pages with a map plus 16 plates. Black cloth; trifling signs of use and age; an excellent copy with the dustwrapper, fresh and bright, having been removed, folded and stored since new (albeit with heavy vertical and horizontal creases and a small tear at the rear). Provenance: Edward Edgar Pescott (1872-1954), horticulturalist, naturalist and author, with his 1942 bookplate (by George Perrottet). Loosely inserted is an autograph letter signed from the author, Jeannie Gunn (nee Taylor) to Pescott (small quarto, 3 pages, 29 July 1940, complete with the envelope addressed by Gunn). She begins with thanks for his recent birthdays greetings to her, but the bulk of the letter concerns matters (not) arising in Pescott's 'little Bonwick book.... Personally I would like to say from myself how much I appreciate your most tactful leaving unsaid of any reference to poor little Auntie Annie's first & disastrous marriage that left only bitterness & recrimination in the hearts of so many of those most nearly concerned - Poor children! Auntie Annie was just a gay spoiled little child of 16 - & gay and spoiled she remained all through her 90 years. And poor Uncle John was just a broken-hearted boy in his young twenties at her desertion of him in his bitter adversity ... There is just one thing in it all to dear old James Bonwick's honour - He remained the truest & most loyal friend to John Taylor's parents all their life - especially perhaps to my mother!'. Auntie Annie was Esther Annie Bonwick, one of the children of James Bonwick.

        Archive of Silhouette Art: Shakespearean plays, opera and ballet by a Southern Woman Artist

      1942. Very good condition. An extensive archive of hundreds of exquisitely cut paper silhouettes by a New Orleans artist with New York city connections, the majority of which depict Shakespearean plays, operas performed at the Met, ballet, and literary works. These are the works of Mrs. Katherine Gourdin Smith of New Orleans, whose silhouette work centers on contemporary theatrical work being performed in New York City. Katherine Baldwin Robertson Smith (19 Sep 1864 -19 Apr 1943), was born in Louisiana at a tumultuous moment in the history of the U.S. On September 2nd, 1864, Atlanta fell to the Northern troops. On September 5th, voters in Louisiana who had taken an oath of loyalty to the United States ratified a state constitution abolishing slavery. On November 8th, Abraham Lincoln was reelected as president of the United States. By April 9th, 1865, Robert E. Lee surrendered the Army of Northern Virginia to Ulysses S. Grant at the Appomattox Court House. Five days later, President Lincoln was assassinated. Her father, William Robertson (1819 - 1890) graduated from West Point in 1840. He served as a 2nd Lieut. in the Florida War against the Seminole Indians, 1841-42 and in garrison at Baton Rouge, La., 1842-43. He resigned from the Army in July 1843 and was a planter in New Iberia, La. Her mother, Eliza Ann Marsh Robertson was born in Petit Anse Island (now Avery Island), Iberia Parish, La. In May 1844, she married William Robertson (1819-1890), with whom she had ten children. The artist's husband, Robert N. Gourdin Smith, mentioned in the "Register of Carolina Huguenots", was a cotton futures trader in New Orleans with the firm Smith & Hayne in New Orleans, (he is mentioned in the 1905 and 1913 editions of the "Cotton Trade Journal".) The New Orleans Social Register in 1922 cites the artist with husband R. N. Gourdin Smith. Katherine, her husband and parents are all buried in Rose Hill Cemetery, New Iberia, Iberia Parish, Louisiana. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill holds a diary/scrapbook of Eliza Robertson (1849-1856,) apparently written at New Iberia, Iberia Parish, La., recording the daily life of a Louisiana gentlewoman. Robertson's brief though detailed daily entries document her participation in food production, clothing production, child care, and other household tasks, often noting which chores were performed by slaves and which she performed herself. Social activities are also described in detail, including arrivals and departures of guests, food served, the celebration of Christmas, games played, and events attended. The silhouettes of Shakespeare plays include Hamlet, Midsummer Night's Dream, Romeo and Juliet, and The Tempest. The opera silhouettes include Gounod's 'Faust', Pagliacci's 'Punchinello' and the French comic opera, 'La Cigale'. The ballet silhouettes are of Prokofiev's 'Cinderella'. In addition there are silhouettes in an envelope marked "Rip" which are likely for the operetta by Robert Planquette based on the stories The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Rip Van Winkle by Washington Irving. The artist's process is shown, as she drew her subjects on light paper and then executed them in cut silhouettes in black. One envelope contains a photographic negative of Gourdin Smith's silhouette art which is marked "Faust as [illegible] at Metropolitan Opera House N. Y. 18--. Jean de Reske, Faust" [3 other performers' names are illegible]. Jean de Reszke, the famed Polish tenor, appeared in Faust at the Met in 1883. This negative suggests that perhaps the artist was a magic lantern illustrator. A newspaper clipping published towards the end of her life shows her interest in W.W.II. It is a silhouette illustration pertaining to the British lend lease bill of World War II. The image depicts Mother England beckoning to her daughter in America, who stands holding a miniature fleet of American ships on strings at the ready to sail across the sea in support of her deserving parent. Each silhouette in its original envelope, some with the topics labeled in pencil by the artist. Miscellaneous pieces include dogs, rabbits, girls, baskets, braziers, encadre frames, cupids, honeysuckle, Mrs. Merriweather, and 'Christmas Pie". One of the envelopes provides the artist's address at 1718 Cadiz Street, New Orleans. A total of 41 envelopes, each one enclosing at least 20 silhouettes so that the total number approaches 1,000. Some of them as small as 1/2" in height, others up to 5" high; along with 4 separate sleeves of additional silhouettes, including young men and women, characters in 18th century attire including damsels in distress and gentlemen in britches with young boys carrying hatchets, a series of 5 goats, and a series of wrought iron entry gates. Some of the silhouettes cut from white paper, some cut from black. A remarkable archive reflecting a life long career in silhouette art by an American woman artist.

Original colour-printed wrappers, bound in 5 contemporary Middle Eastern green cloth-bound volumes with chipped and faded red sheepskin labels, marbled endpapers; highly illustrated with photographic plates (in pagination) and in the text; covers and a few plates a bit cropped by the binder, a few covers a little spotted, text evenly browned, due to paper stock, loss to small lower portion of the first leaf of issue 6, otherwise clean and good.

'Some say the word "gen" is an abbreviation of "intelligence," some, that it stands for "genuine information." R.A.F. artificers complicate matters by insisting that it derives from the title of their training text-book "General Engineering Notes."

Kohlhoff zeigt seine Stadtbilder menschenleer und verleiht ihnen somit teils einen denkmalhaften Charakter. In seinen Arbeiten wendet er sich vor allem den ruhigen Orten der Großstadt wie auch Hinterhöfen, Großstadtdächern und abgelegenen Arealen wie Seitenstrassen, Kleingärten, Bahngleisen, Fabrikanlagen etc.. Er malte im Rahmen einer späten Neusachlichkeit. Dies gilt auch für seine anderen Motive wie Bilder aus den Alpen, Landschaftsstudien, Stilleben. Ferner malte er Porträts und Aktzeichnungen.
