        POEMS BY SAMUEL GREENBERG

      Henry Hold and Company (1947), New York - Preface by Allen Tate. Elizabeth Bishop's copy SIGNED by her on the front endpaper. In a letter to Robert Lowell dated 27 June 1950 Bishop writes of THIS book: "I spent most of the weekend reading Samuel Greenberg--have you? I got so mad at the introductions, particularly Tate's--and if you haven't read the poems I recommend them highly. He was certainly one of the finest poetic characters I know anything about, and phrases are magnificent--and no critic has ever apparently appreciated either at their real value" (ONE ART: ELIZABETH BISHOP'S LETTERS, p. 204). In another letter to Robert Lowell dated August 1950, Bishop writes: "I'm reading The 'Green Huntsman' and it's marvelous--also just finished Samuel Greenberg and Isaac Rosenberg who have many strange points in common" (WORDS IN AIR: THE COMPLETE CORRESPONDENCE OF ELIZABETH BISHOP AND ROBERT LOWELL). Clearly even two months later this book was still in the forefront of Bishop's mind. While we have handled several copies of Bishop's books signed by her as well as correspondence, this is the first book from the poet's library that we have encountered. It appears, also, to be a book that had some influence on Bishop's development as a poet. Greenberg was also a huge influence on the poet Hart Crane, who first read Greenberg in manuscript. Crane was so taken by Greenberg, he lifted entire lines for his own poems. The cloth was damaged by water at some point with the result that it is discolored. There is only slight water damage to the dustwrapper. Still Very Good in a Very Good dustwrapper [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        INTO THE NIGHT LIFE. (Inscribed and signed by Henry Miller and Bezalel "Lilik" Schatz).

      [Berkeley: Henry Miller & Bezalel Schatz, 1947]. Large quarto (14.5 x 12 inches), [86] pp., text (reproducing Henry Miller's cursive hand) and color illustrations by Bezalel Schatz are reproduced in serigraph (silkscreen); bound in blue cloth with silkscreen decoration and red felt patch on front board, spine lettered in black, slipcase. The concept for this production was that of Palestinian artist Bezalel (Lilik) Schatz who, desiring to produce enlisted Henry Miller as textual collaborator. The text used is from Miller's "Black Spring." The book was printed entirely by Bezalel Schatz at his Berkeley home/studio over a period of 16 months. 800 copies were printed, but according to Shifreen & Jackson's Bibliography of Henry Miller "somewhat less than 200 copies" were bound up for sale in 1947. From the stored first edition sheets and binding materials, approximately 20-25 copies were issued in 1971 and another 190 were issued in 1977, while "Approximately 400 of the original 600 sets of sheets stored in Miller's closet were destroyed by 'worms' [also described by Miller as 'rats and fungus'." The 1977 copies were essentially those that could be salvaged and most exhibit small wormholes "on approximately 20% of the pages." Again referring to Shifreen & Jackson, among other points of identification, the primary difference between the first issue and the later ones is the absence of spine title lettering on the 2 later issues. Issued copies were signed and numbered in the colophon and S & J note that first issue copies have been seen "numbered through at least copy No. 164 . . ." The bibliographers make no statement concerning the numbering of the second issue, but the third issue copies were "numbered in the low 200's to the upper 300's." Which brings us to speculate that our copy - bearing all the first issue points but numbered in the colophon "This is copy #800" when coupled with Henry Miller's cryptic inscription on the front free endpaper: "For Theodore Bernardi who believes that the last shall come first - Bravo! (signed) Henry Miller" - was actually the first copy issued. Bezalel Schatz has also inscribed to the SF Bay Area architect and lecturer at UCB Theodore Bernardi (1903-1990): "For Theodore, a wonderful man and great architect, with warm friendship. Lilik, Berkeley." Shifreen & Jackson A60a. Slight fading to spine, rubbing to spine foot, slipcase recovered in style of original materials.

        On the Interaction Between Neutrons and Electrons

      The Physical Review, [ Lancaster, PA ] 1947 - First Edition. 1139-1146 pages. 7 3/4 x 10 1/2 inches (8vo). Original green printed wrappers. Offprint from The Physical Review, Vol 72, No 12, pp. 1139-1146, December 15, 1947. A touch of fading to the edges, otherwise a fine copy. Wraps. The Nobel Prize in Physics 1938 was awarded to Enrico Fermi "for his demonstrations of the existence of new radioactive elements produced by neutron irradiation, and for his related discovery of nuclear reactions brought about by slow neutrons". (Nobel site)"The possible existence of a potential interaction between neutron and electron has been investigated by examining the asymmetry of thermal neutron scattering from xenon." (abstract) "When the neutron experiments were at the end of their obvious and interesting extension, Leona Marshall and Fermi sat down and discussed the various possible neutron interactions. Mrs. Marshall recalls that her suggestion and urging led to the experiment on neutron-electron interaction (in xenon gas) described in this paper. The result was negative, but with a limit of error smaller than the magnitude of the effect which they estimated from meson theory. They were not aware of the interaction between the Pauli moment and the electric field of the electron, discovered only later by Foldy." (H. L. Anderson in the Collected Papers of Enrico Fermi Vol II)."Leona Woods [Marshall] was 23 in 1942, the only woman present when Enrico Fermi's nuclear pile at the University of Chicago went critical and into the history books. She moved to Hanford in 1944 with her husband, fellow physicist John Marshall. Mrs. Libby was one of the few women scientists in the Manhattan Project and probably the most well known."

Frankl in das Vernichtungslager Auschwitz deportiert. Seine Mutter wird sofort in der Gaskammer ermordet, seine Frau Tilly wird nach Bergen-Belsen gebracht, wo sie mit 24 Jahren stirbt. Viktor Frankl wird in Viehwaggons über Wien nach Kaufering und Türkheim (Nebenlager von Dachau) gebracht. Auch unter den extremen Bedingungen der Konzentrationslager findet Frankl seine Thesen über Schicksal und Freiheit bestätigt. Im letzten Lager erkrankt er an Fleckfieber und hält sich nachts wach, indem er versucht, sein Buch "Ärztliche Seelsorge" stenographisch zu rekonstruieren. Am 27. April wird er von US-Truppen befreit und kehrt im August nach Wien zurück. Dort erfährt er innerhalb weniger Tage vom Tod seiner Frau, seiner Mutter und seines Bruders, der gemeinsam mit seiner Frau in Auschwitz umgebracht wurde. Viktor Frankl überwindet seine Verzweiflung, wird Vorstand der Wiener Neurologischen Poliklinik und behält diese Position 25 Jahre lang. Mit der rekonstruierten Fassung von "Ärztliche Seelsorge" habilitiert er sich. Außerdem diktiert er in 9 Tagen das Buch "Ein Psycholog erlebt das Konzentrationslager", von dem bis 1997 in der englischen Fassung (Man‘s Search for Meaning") mehr als 9 Millionen Exemplare verkauft worden sind. Im selben Jahr erscheint auch das Buch ". trotzdem Ja zum Leben sagen" (nicht zu verwechseln mit der erweiterten Neuauflage von "Ein Psychologe erlebt das Konzentrationslager", die 1977 erschien und ebenfalls den Haupttitel ". trotzdem Ja zum Leben sagen" trägt). - Mit dem Originaleinband von Leo Friedrich, der den Titel "Ein Psycholog erlebt das KZ" trägt. - Gebräunt, Buchblock leicht angebrochen. *** /// *** Copyright: Matthaeus Truppe - Stubenberggasse 7 - A-8010 Graz - +43 316 829552 *** /// *** Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 200 Kl.-8°.

        Toi et Moi

      l'Ile de France 1947 - Edition illustrated with original drawings by Georges Lepape. 174 pages. Limited edition, this one of the 2500 numbered copies on fine vellum.Toi et Moi. Paul Geraldy . Signed by author. 1947. Elegant leather binding and with a nice case. Paul Geraldy (1885-1983), French poet and playwright, may have been born for Valentine's Day. A walking compendium of romantic quotes, Toi at Moi - probably his most famous oeuvre - is a collection of poetry dealing with the mysteries of love. Lepape painted vellum binding, using chimerical ink-pastels, matches the mood in a way which defies words. One envisions this having been at one time proffered as the consummately heart-touching Valentine to -what lady fair ? It is the woman who chooses the man who will choose her (Geraldy). Maybe back in the roaring twenties, that happened, when this little opus was itself young. A painted melody of enchanting visual aspect -as we say now, curb appeal - and words of rending tone. Certainly unique, and not replaceable. Very nice copy. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        On the Interaction Between Neutrons and Electrons

      [ Lancaster, PA ]: The Physical Review, 1947. First Edition. Wraps. Near Fine. First Edition. 1139-1146 pages. 7 3/4 x 10 1/2 inches (8vo). Original green printed wrappers. Offprint from The Physical Review, Vol 72, No 12, pp. 1139-1146, December 15, 1947. A touch of fading to the edges, otherwise a fine copy. Wraps. The Nobel Prize in Physics 1938 was awarded to Enrico Fermi "for his demonstrations of the existence of new radioactive elements produced by neutron irradiation, and for his related discovery of nuclear reactions brought about by slow neutrons". (Nobel site)"The possible existence of a potential interaction between neutron and electron has been investigated by examining the asymmetry of thermal neutron scattering from xenon..." (abstract) "When the neutron experiments were at the end of their obvious and interesting extension, Leona Marshall and Fermi sat down and discussed the various possible neutron interactions. Mrs. Marshall recalls that her suggestion and urging led to the experiment on neutron-electron interaction (in xenon gas) described in this paper. The result was negative, but with a limit of error smaller than the magnitude of the effect which they estimated from meson theory. They were not aware of the interaction between the Pauli moment and the electric field of the electron, discovered only later by Foldy." (H. L. Anderson in the Collected Papers of Enrico Fermi Vol II)."Leona Woods [Marshall] was 23 in 1942, the only woman present when Enrico Fermi's nuclear pile at the University of Chicago went critical and into the history books. She moved to Hanford in 1944 with her husband, fellow physicist John Marshall. Mrs. Libby was one of the few women scientists in the Manhattan Project and probably the most well known." (Voices of the Manhattan Project).

      1947 - Bildmaß ca. 44 x 29,5 cm ( Höhe x Breite ). Gezeigt wird wahrscheinlich die Frau des Künstlers. Das Gemälde etwas fleckig und stärker berieben, vor allem zu den Außenrändern hin durch alte Rahmung. >>>Walter Kohlhoff ( *1906Berlin&#150; 1981 ebenda ). W. Kohlhoff war über 20 Jahre lang Vorstandsmitglied des Vereins Berliner Künstler. Maler urbaner Landschaften Berlins und seiner Umgebung. 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, Selbstporträts und Aktzeichnungen.<<< ( Artikelnummer 15769 ) [Attributes: Hard Cover]
