Was ich von allen deutschen Männern und Frauen dieses Raumes geradezu als äußerste grundsätzliche Haltung verlange, ist Stärke. Ich brauche Euch starke Männer und stark bewusste Frauen. In den kommenden Wochen und Monaten müsst ihr im Generalgouvernement einen stählernen Block der Geschlossenheit schmieden.

Wie im Vorjahr haben wir uns bemüht, allen etwas zu geben. Den Volksgenossen, die aus den Gauen des Reiches herkamen, um in der deutschen Verwaltungs-und Parteiarbeit, im Rahmen des Wirtschaftsausbaus oder als Soldaten und Männer von SS und Polizei hier ihre Pflicht zu tun. Möge der Kalender dazu dienen, ihre Kenntnis von diesem Raum, seinen Menschen und Problemen zu vertiefen. Den deutschen Menschen, die hier seit Generationen lebten, kämpften und die deutsche Stellung hielten, möge er durch die Kunde von deutscher Leistung in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart das Vertrauen in die eigene Kraft und die Kraft der völkischen Gemeinschaft stärken. Der Bauer und die Hausfrau finden wieder viele nützliche Hinweise und Ratschläge, und auch für den Feierabend nach des Tages Mühe und Last es gesorgt. Die Blätter des Kalendarium führen uns in Städte, die gleich Krakau an und vor des Reiches Grenzen eine geschichtliche Aufgabe als Vorposten deutscher Kraftausstrahlung zu erfüllen hatten und so für die Weite des deutschen Lebensraumes künden. Ein deutscher Maler aus Ungarn, Hercz-Pereli, hat uns dazu einprägsame Zeichnungen gegeben . . . Im heimatskundlichen Teil haben wir diesmal das Gebiet der mittelalterlichen deutschen Kolonisation besonders berücksichtigt. Von der Bewährung volksdeutscher Männer an den Fronten unseres Entscheidungskampfes wird im Abschnitt "Große Gegenwart" erzählt Ein besonderes Augenmerk haben wir diesmal der Sippenforschung zugewendet und uns entschlossen, durch ein Preisausschreiben das Interesse der Deutschen des Generalgouvernements auf diese Arbeit zu lenken.

Rare first and only edition of a bilingual (Latin and French) work on the medical properties of milk and snuff, the latter made from pulverised tobacco leaves, by the otherwise unknown "licentiate in medicine", M. Vloers.The first part of the work is a lengthy treatise arguing against the claim that fresh milk is the cause of bowel problems, and stating instead that milk is easily digestible, followed by a listing of the many medical attributes of milk. The second part discusses the effects of the use of snuff. "Those who make use of snuff, . . . are misled by the belief that this nicotian substance relieves them of mucus. But, he says, it has the same harmful effect as if one took a daily purgative" (Arents). The unpleasant reactions to the use of snuff, such as sneezing, sniffing and snorting, indicate that it is an unhealthy, unclean habit and some of the ailments likely to ensue from a habitual use of the powder are: vertigo, breast afflictions, heart trouble and congestion of the blood. Hypochondriacs and hysterical or very slender people are those worst affected by the use of snuff. So snuff should only be employed with caution, and should rarely be prescribed by physicians.Waterstains throughout the gutter and foot margins, running into the text. Reasonable copy of a rare work.

(Cockalorum 162: 'Suggstions from subscribers are always welcomed, and a kindly Providence seems to direct towards the Golden Cockerel exciting literary material - for instance, this eye-witness account of a three-year voyage with Captain Cook, previously unpublished in English. As if that were not enough, the artist chosen to illustrate this great book produced a collection of engravings which were revolutionary, and a highly successful step forward in the adaptation of the wood-engraving medium to modern art. Blocks like his 'Icebergs with Aurora Australis' fill me with wonder and joy, and a pride in having been directly responsible for giving him the opportunity to express himself in these terms. The Renaissance of art following the disturbance of war may be worth considerable notice when sufficient time has elapsed for us to stand back and see it in perspective.') 13 wood engravings by Peter Barker-Mill.

        Catalog Design

      New York: Sweet's Catalog Service, a division of F. W. Dodge Corporation, 1944. 4to. 36 leaves, unpaginated. Original printed boards, yellow endpapers, spiral bound. An important work from two of the great pioneers in the fields of information design and information architecture. "For a wide range of American businesses, Sutnar developed graphic systems that clarified vast amounts of complex information, transforming business data into digestible units. He was the man responsible for putting the parentheses around American telephone area-code numbers when they were first introduced" (AIGA National Design Center). An émigré to America in 1923, Lonberg-Holm was a fundamental correspondent with prominent European architects and their modernist counterparts in the U.S. Beginning in the late 1930s, Lönberg-Holm was the Director of Research for Sweet's Catalog Service, a division of F.W. Dodge Corporation in New York. Then as now, Sweet's was a clearing house for trade and industry catalogs selling common and arcane building, plumbing, electrical, and other construction supplies, to architects, contractors, and craftsmen" (Steven Heller, 'The Graphic Design Reader,' 1999). Pale marginal dampstain at end, light soiling to boards.
