        Kutschen Europas des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts, Band 2: Wagen-Atlas

      Originalzustand, ideal zum Verschenken Originalschutzumschlag, dieser hinten am oberen Rand leicht angeknickt Vergriffen, sehr selten und nicht wieder aufgelegt Rezension http://equivox.de/Magazin/274/Rezension Klappentext Der vorliegende zweite Band von Kutschen des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts behandelt die Luxuswagen und ihre Typen und Modelle. Die 60 gängigsten Wagen werden mit ihren unterschiedlichen Modellen und charakteristischen Merkmalen in Wort und Bild dargestellt, historisch eingeordnet und von anderen Modellen und Typen abgegrenzt. Dieser Band bietet in nie dagewesenem Maße ein Instrument zur Identifikation von Kutschen und zu ihrer Einordnung in den historischen und kulturellen Kontext. Er liefert außerdem viele praktische Hinweise zur Datierung, Bestimmung, Restauration und Konservierung historischer Kutschen. Er ist eine unerschöpfliche Quelle von Informationen und Inspirationen für alle Kutschenfreunde, Kutschenhersteller, Museen, private Sammler und Restauratoren. Fahrern und Turnierrichtern, die sich für das traditionelle Fahren interessieren oder sich ihm schon verschrieben haben, bietet das Gesamtwerk alles, was sie zur Zusammenstellung bzw. Bewertung eines stilvollen und stilgerechten Gespannes benötigen. Es schließt eine lange vorhandenen Lücke und schlägt eine Brücke vom "Goldenen Zeitalter der Kutschen" zur heutigen Fahrkultur und -kunst. Umschlagtext Im vorliegenden zweiten Band von Kutschen Europas des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts wird die reiche Fülle der in Europa hauptsächlich verbreiteten Wagenmodelle des vorletzten Jahrhunderts aufgrund der wichtigsten historischen Quellen systematisch geordnet vorgestellt. 63 gängige Luxuswagen werden durch den Lauf der Zeit verfolgt. Sie geben einen repräsentativen Querschnitt durch die beeindruckende Formenvielfalt der historischen Kutschen von der schweren herrschaftlichen Coach bis zum leichten, sportlichen Zweirad. Der zweite Band ist als Bestimmungsbuch konzipiert, aus dem Modell- und Typenbezeichnungen sowie Datierungen abgeleitet werden können. Dieses Werk beruht auf der Auswertung von ehemals führenden Wagenbau-Zeitschriften des französischen, englischen und deutschen Sprachraums. Dazu kommen faksimilierte Alben der bedeutendsten Kutschenfabriken Europas und viele Fotos aus bisher weitgehend unpublizierten Privatsammlungen von historischen Kutschen. Damit werden die beiden Bände mit ihren zahlreichen Abbildungen zu einem wichtigen Grundlagenwerk der Wagenmoden des 19. Jahrhunderts, die den Grundstein für das Zeitalter des Automobils gelegt haben. "Dieses Werk wird eines der ganz großen in den Bibliotheken der Kutschenfreunde werden." Kenneth Wheeling, Carriage Journal, USA "Opulent illustriert, bis ins letzte Detail fundiert und faktenreich recherchiert, zugleich spannend und kurzweilig zu lesen..." Tobias Schumacher, www.Metall-aktiv.de, Hephaistos, Deutschland "Diese Bände werden unzweifelhaft das ultimative Nachschlagewerk für die Epoche werden. ... Die Bilder allein machen dem Besitz der Bände schon erstrebenswert, aber wo sonst könnte man all diese Informationen auffinden..." Frits van Solt, MenSport, Holland "... das Urteil lautet: Prädikat besonders wertvoll, ... sehr empfehlenswert! ... Ein mit so viel Liebe zum Detail und soviel Sachkenntnis zusammengetragenes Kompendium zum Thema Kutschen hat es bisher wohl weltweit noch nicht gegeben..." Rezensent im www, Fahren und mehr ... Andres Furger wurde 1948 in Basel geboren. Er studierte ur- und frühgeschichtliche Archäologie, Geschichte und Anthropologie und promovierte mit einer Dissertation über die Ausgrabungen im Basler Münster. Von 1981 bis 1986 war Andres Furger als Konservator und Vizedirektor am Historischen Museum in Basel tätig. Seit 1987 ist der Direktor der Museengruppe MUSÉE SUISSES, die ihren Hauptsitz in Zürich hat. In dieser Funktion übernahm er in den letzten Jahren die Leitung von drei weiteren Museen, die er neu eröffnete: Das Musikautomaten Museum in Seewen, das Forum der Schweizer Geschichte in Schwyz und die Zweigstelle des Landesmuseums in der Westschweiz im Château de Prangins. Andres Furger ist Herausgeber und Mitautor der vierbändigen Reihe "Archäologie und Kulturgeschichte der Schweiz". Band I wurde 2004 vom Deutschen Reiter- und Fahrer-Verband mit dem Wagenrad in Bronze ausgezeichnet. Weitere Publikationen: Der Gotthard-Postwagen (1990), Kutschen und Schlitten in der Schweiz (1993), Kleine Burg-Chronik des Schlosses Wildegg (1994), Der rote Faden. Von der Redensart zum Geschichtsbild (1995), Das Bild der Seele im Spiegel der Jahrtausende (1997), Schweizerisches Landesmuseum Zürich & Prangins (1908. 90), Ateliergespräche mit Hans Erni (1998).

        Crusade in Europe

      Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, 1948. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Inscribed by the author, "For George Brooke with best wishes and warm regard from his friend Dwight D. Eisenhower 5 June 1954." Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Five-star General Dwight D. Eisenhower was arguably the single most important military figure of World War II. For many historians, his memoirs of this eventful period of U.S. history have become the single most important record of the war. Crusade in Europe tells the complete story of the war as Eisenhower planned and lived it. Through his eyes, the enormous scope and drama of the war-strategy, battles, moments of fateful decision-become fully illuminated in all their fateful glory. "Eisenhower gives the reader true insight into the most difficult part of a commander's life" (New York Times).

        The Second World War, full set of six U S first editions

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1948. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. This is a full, six-volume, jacketed set of first editions. The Second World War is Churchill's history of the epic 20th Century struggle that was so indelibly stamped by his leadership. Seldom, if ever, has history endowed a statesman with both singular ability to make history, and singular ability to write it. As with so much of what Churchill wrote, The Second World War is not "history" in the strictly academic, objectivist sense, but rather Churchill's perspective on history. In his March 1948 introduction to the first volume, Churchill himself made the disclaimer, "I do not describe it as history... it is a contribution to history..." Nonetheless the compelling fact remains, as stated by Churchill himself, "I am perhaps the only man who has passed through both the two supreme cataclysms of recorded history in high Cabinet office... I was for more than five years in this second struggle with Germany the Head of His Majesty's government. I write, therefore, from a different standpoint and with more authority than was possible in my earlier books." Certainly The Second World War may be regarded as an intensely personal and inherently biased history. Nonetheless, Churchill's work remains seminal, iconic, and a vital part of the historical record. The six-volume epic has been called "indispensable reading for anyone who seeks a true understanding of the war that made us what we are today." This U.S. first edition is not only more scarce today than its British counterpart, but is also the true first edition. The first U.S. volume, The Gathering Storm, was published in June 1948, while the British first edition was not published until October 1948. The sixth and final U.S. first edition volume, Triumph and Tragedy, was published during Churchill's second and final Premiership in November 1953. A Book-of-the-Month Club (BOMC) edition was published virtually simultaneously with the U.S. first edition and is quite similar in appearance (often causing confusion for disappointed collectors who think they are buying first editions). Note these are not the common BOMC look-alikes, but correct first trade editions in all respects: the dust jackets are unclipped and bear the correct, first printing $6.00 price. All top edges are stained dark yellow-orange. Title and copyright pages bear correct first printing indications. All volumes bear the distinctive red and yellow head and foot bands. There are no BOMC indentations on the rear covers. This first edition set shows some age and wear, but nonetheless features very good plus or better volumes in good plus or better dust jackets. Shelf presentation is imperfect but notably bright, with none of the typical fading of the vivid red, yellow, and orange hues. We note edgewear and chipping to all of the jackets, with a scuff at the title of the Volume III spine head. The dust jackets are protected beneath removable, archival quality clear covers. The first printing volumes all feature tight bindings that are clean and unfaded with bright shelf presentation. A trace of spotting appears confined to a few page edges and the Volume III endpapers. The sole previous ownership mark we find in the set is a previous owner name, with Baltimore address and dated ?Aug. ?50?, inked to the Volume I upper front free endpaper. Laid in at page 69 in Volume III we discovered an interesting wartime souvenir ? the front cover of a wartime matchbook cover printed in six lines: ?Buy | WAR SAVINGS | BONDS | and | STAMPS | close cover before striking?. This had clearly been laid in for the life of the volume, with transfer browning to the upper left of the page where the matchbook cover has lain all these years. Please note that this large set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A240.1(I-VI).a, Woods/ICS A123(aa), Langworth p.258.

        The Second World War, full set of six British first editions, inscribed in the first volume by the author's namesake grandson

      London: Cassell and Company, Ltd., 1948. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Here is a full set of British first editions of The Second World War, inscribed and dated by the author?s namesake grandson in Volume I. The inscription, inked in blue in four lines on the half title recto of The Gathering Storm, reads: ?For Harvey | from | Winston S. Churchill | 9/11/92?. Winston S. Churchill (1940-2010), son of Randolph S. Churchill, was born exactly five months after his grandfather became wartime prime minister, days before the victorious conclusion to the Battle of Britain. The grandson ultimately served as a Conservative Member of Parliament for 27 years. The Second World War is Prime Minister Winston S. Churchill?s history of the epic 20th Century struggle that was so indelibly stamped by his leadership. Seldom, if ever, has history endowed a statesman with both singular ability to make history, and singular ability to write it. As with so much of what Churchill wrote, The Second World War is not "history" in the strictly academic, objectivist sense, but rather Churchill's perspective on history. In his March 1948 introduction to the first volume, Churchill himself made the disclaimer, "I do not describe it as history... it is a contribution to history..." Nonetheless the compelling fact remains, as stated by Churchill himself, "I am perhaps the only man who has passed through both the two supreme cataclysms of recorded history in high Cabinet office... I was for more than five years in this second struggle with Germany the Head of His Majesty's government. I write, therefore, from a different standpoint and with more authority than was possible in my earlier books." Certainly The Second World War may be regarded as an intensely personal and inherently biased history. Nonetheless, Churchill's work remains seminal, iconic, and a vital part of the historical record. Richard Langworth calls the six-volume epic "indispensable reading for anyone who seeks a true understanding of the war that made us what we are today." Jacketed British first edition sets in marginal condition are not uncommon. However, the coarse cloth bindings of this edition proved susceptible to soiling and mildew, the contents (printed on post-war "Economy Standards" paper) proved highly prone to spotting, the red-stained top edges are most often severely faded, and the dust jackets proved exceptionally vulnerable to pronounced spine toning. Consequently, superior jacketed sets have become scarce. This set is superior to many we encounter, featuring near fine volumes in very good or better dust jackets. The black cloth bindings remain uniformly clean, tight, and square with bright spine gilt. The contents show none of the spotting endemic to the first edition. The red topstain is modestly sunned, but retains respectable color. The only previous ownership mark we find in the set is a gift inscription dated ?Oct: 1948? ? the month of publication - inked on the upper front free endpaper of The Gathering Storm. Laid in at volumes IV, V, and VI we also found original Harrods purchase receipts, all bearing the same owner name and address. The dust jackets are complete, with all original prices intact on the front flaps and no losses or tears. We note only some trivial wear to extremities and mild but even toning to the jacket spines, with the red subtitle lettering faded but still legible. All six dust jackets are protected with removable, archival quality clear covers. Please note that this set may require additional postage. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A240.4(I-VI).a, Woods/ICS A123(ba), Langworth p.264.
