Eine Monographienreihe, herausgegeben in Verbindung mit einer Arbeitsgemeinschaft. ? ?Den Verfasser hatten seinerzeit zur Herausgabe eines Buches über den Goldschmied Hans Peter Staffelbach nebst der Bewunderung für dessen Grösse auch verwandtschaftliche Gründe veranlasst. Als Surseer, reizt es ihn, im vorliegenden Werke über seine Mitbürgerin, die bekannte Hinterglasmalerin Anna Barbara ab Esch, zu schreiben, die ein Kunsthandwerk betrieb, das für seine Heimatstadt typisch ist und für das er stetsfort ein grosses Interesse hegte. In der ?Geschichte der Luzerner Glasmalerei? von Prof. Dr. Hans Lehmann, ist die Geschichte der Hinterglasmalerei nicht bearbeitet worden. Es ist daher berechtigt, dieses interessante, für den Kanton Luzern charakteristische Kunstgewerbe gesondert zu würdigen. Ein Spezialwerk über die schweizerischen oder luzernischen Malereien hinter Glas existiert bis jetzt nicht. Man musste allen Gemälden hinter Glas einzeln nachgehen, von denen man grösstenteils bloss gesprächsweise zum erstenmal etwas gehört hatte. [.] In unserm Buche ist in erster Linie auf die Stücke luzernischer Herkunft Rücksicht genommen worden. Wir notierten aber auch Hinterglasgemälde ausserkantonaler und fremder Provenienz, die sich in Luzerner Besitz befinden, oder die Luzernern gehörten oder ihre Wappenschilder tragen. Weil noch kein Werk über die schweizerische Hinterglasmalerei existiert, möchten wir vor allem mit unserer Darstellung die Forschung anregen.? (p. V f.). ? Inhalt: I.

Tätigkeitsbereiche: Malerei, Glasmalerei, Schmuck (SIKART). ?Die Abesch stammen ursprünglich vom Gehöft Esch bei Ettiswil (LU). In Sursee sind die Anfänge der Hinterglasmalerei um 1680 wohl im Umkreis des Glasmalers Karl Ludwig Thuot (nachweisbar 1673?1693) zu suchen. Der auch als Tafelmaler tätige Johann Peter Abesch etablierte die Tradition dieser Maltechnik. Während seine Schwester Katharina Abesch (Gattin des Goldschmieds Hans Peter Staffelbach) nur sehr wenige Werke hinterliess, führte seine Tochter Anna Barbara diese Kunst in Sursee und der Innerschweiz zur Hochblüte. In ihrem Umkreis wirkten mehrere Spezialisten und Spezialistinnen dieses Fachs. Darunter befinden sich mehrere Verwandte: Neben Johann Peter und Katharina auch ihr Bruder Peter Anton Abesch und ihre Nichte Anna Maria Josepha Magdalena von Hospenthal.

        Albert Einstein: Philosopher - Scientist

      Library of Living Philosophers, Evanston, IL, 1951. 2nd edition . hardcover. Fine/Fine. "Written by the man considered the 'Person of the Century' by Time magazine, this is not a glimpse into Einstein's personal life, but an extension and elaboration into his thinking on science. Two of the great theories of the physical world were created in the early 20th century: the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics. Einstein created the theory of relativity and was also one of the founders of quantum theory. Here, Einstein describes the failure of classical mechanics and the rise of the electromagnetic field, the theory of relativity, and of the quanta."[Pub. Info] Written in German by Einstein, translated by Paul Schilpp. Brief autobiography accompanied by various essays by leading scholars about Einstein's scientific work. Nobel Prize in Physics 1921 was awarded to Albert Einstein "for his services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect." [nobelprize.org] There is a protective mylar cover. 2ND EDITION.

        The War Speeches

      1951. CHURCHILL, Winston S. The War Speeches of the Rt. Hon. Winston S. Churchill. Compiled by Charles Eade. Three volumes. Small 4to., bound in publisher's cloth with dustwrappers. London: Cassell & Company Ltd, 1951-52.|~| |~||~||~||~||~||~| A fine set of the first complete edition of Churchill's celebrated wartime speeches which "form a contemporary history of the conflict in which he was the chief architect of victory." Volume one begins with his Speech delivered at the Free Trade Hall, Manchester, on May 9, 1938 in which Churchill first articulates his concern with the developments in Germany and his unwillingness to believe Hitler's promises that Germany had no designs for future expansion in Europe after annexing Austria a few months earlier. The heart of the volumes are found in his magnificent rallying speeches delivered to the English peoples during the dark years of the war. Facsimiles of his original typed speeches with written excisions and corrections in Churchill's hand, and a number of wartime speeches which are not to be found in the separate volumes issued during the war are included herein. The third volume ends with Churchill's brief resignation statement on July 26, 1945 after his defeat in the general election. An unusually fine set with the fragile cream dustwrappers in fine condition. Woods A 136.

        LES BUCOLIQUES

      Paris: Philippe Gonin, 1951. ONE OF 200 COPIES n. Hardcover. With an Inscribed Original Wood Engraving by the Artist. 327 x 248 mm (12 7/8 x 9 3/4"). 111, [2] pp., [1] leaf (colophon). Translated by L'Abb? Delille [pseudonym of the Chevalier de Langeac]. ONE OF 200 COPIES. Loose as issued in publisher's cream-colored wrappers and vellum-backed portfolio, black titling on spine. In a later patterned paper slipcase. With 80 wood engravings by Lucile Passavant. First preliminary leaf warmly inscribed "To Ed and Mary [Thom?]" from "[Denise?] and Louis"; second preliminary leaf inscribed by the artist to the Thoms; a greeting card illustrated and inscribed by the artist to Mr. and Mrs. Thom laid in at front. A hint of soil to spine, corners worn to boards, faint freckling to covers, the text with isolated trivial foxing, but an excellent copy, the text clean and fresh, and the binding a good deal more than good enough. This is a finely printed and illustrated edition of Virgil's first century B.C. pastoral poems, with intriguing provenance. These evocative and mysterious eclogues (or bucolics) are of great importance as an inspiration for the entire European tradition of pastoral poetry. Additionally, they provided an oblique commentary--of considerable contemporaneous interest--on Roman politics during the time that Gaius Octavian Caesar consolidated his power in the age of post-Julian turmoil. In terms of its modern importance, the book is a showcase for sculptress, painter, and wood engraver Lucile Passavant (1910-2012), who began her career as a voluptuous model posing for French sculptor Aristide Maillol (1861-1944). Though married, he fell in love with her, and she became his mistress. Maillol's close friend and patron, Count Harry Kessler (of Cranach Press fame) wrote in his diary, "in addition to having the kind of young, firm, heavy body that Maillol loved, Lucile was indeed a bright girl, with a talent for sculpture. Her work compares quite favorably with what Maillol was doing at that time. Her young mind was like a sponge, soaking up the master's sense of form and design. She also picked up his sense of graphic design. She carved woodcuts to illustrate classical poetry just like Aristide had done years earlier. She was a natural." As for provenance, the connection between Mr. and Mrs. Thom and Passavant may have been of some importance, as the French notes from the artist to the owners here reflect a friendly relationship.

      Macdonald, London 1951-1969 A first edition, first printing set of Williamson's celebrated semi-autobiographical sequence of fifteen novels which explore the fortunes of one family during the first half of the twentieth century. 8vo. Original publisherÂ’s cloth. Several top edges lightly spotted and dust marked, with just a hint of light partial browning to the endpapers of four volumes. Former owner name neatly inked to the front endpaper of one volume, and a tiny dealer plate to the front pastedown of another. A small piece of the front endpaper of a single volume ('Love and the Loveless') has been carefully clipped, presumably to remove a former owner name or inscription. An extremely crisp set in the original James Broom-Lynne-designed dust wrappers, three of which have been price clipped, and several of which exhibit a little rubbing and chafing to spine ends, although there is no significant loss to any. The spine panel lettering of a single volume is quite tanned. A very nice example of an increasingly scarce set - a Burgess Ninety-Nine. Laid-in is a short undated letter to Williamson enquiring about the availability of a number of titles. Williamson has annotated and returned the letter ("Sorry, I cannot tell you. I want some for myself, for revision, many of mine being lost, stolen, and strayed. Regret brevity harvest 8am - 10am").. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good.

        The Autobiography of William Carlos Williams

      RANDOM HOUSE, NEW YORK 1951 - signed and inscribed to Elena Hellebranth by author, pages clean, gilt on cover and spine, 2 nes paper articals about williams fold in front cover, front end paper yellowed, princeton antiques bookplate on inside of front cover, dj torn and creased at edges WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS A PHYSICIAN AND POET AND THE DE HELLEBRANTH FAMILY WERE VERY CLOSE. OUR COLLECTION OF WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS WAS PURCHASED FROM THE HOME IN VENTNOR THE CITY NEXT TO OUR GREAT ATLANTIC CITY. Roland De Hellebranth A Doctor who performed surgeries at home and sisters Bertha de Hellebranth and Elena were born into a cultured upper-class family in Budapest, Bertha in 1899, Elena in 1897. Their father was a lawyer and their mother a student of Franz Liszt's last living pupil. They studied at the Academy of Fine Art in Budapest, at the Académie Julian and the Académie de la Grande Chaumière in Paris, and painted portraits of European nobility. As Patricia Fazekas points out, "Growing up in a family of privilege, they seemed to have unusual access to many illustrious people." So we should not be surprised to find among their subjects members of high society, such as Count Andrássy Gyula, the Russian-born Princess Baby Galitzine, and Admiral Horthy Miklós, the Regent. Later on, their subjects included American heiress Gladys Vanderbilt (Countess László Széchenyi), President Theodore Roosevelt's granddaughter Paulina Longworth and former President Dwight D. Eisenhower. Often, the sisters would paint the same subject at the same time, offering the sitter a choice of portraits. Most often, the sitter wanted both renditions. While Elena concentrated on working in oil and watercolor, Bertha used gouache and oil to achieve her effects. Elena gave lectures and workshops, was a writer and also wrote popular and ecclesiastical music, while Bertha also went in for sculpture and handicrafts. From the mid-thirties until World War II, Bertha and Elena divided their time between their home in Budapest and a home on the ocean at 109 S Frankfort ave, Ventnor, NJ. In 1925, they showed their work at the Nemzeti Szalon in Budapest, and in 1926, they had a joint exhibition of their portraits in the US. Both exhibited their work at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and most major museums and galleries in the US. Bertha also had exhibits at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Both Bertha and Elena were Fellows of the Royal Society of Art (London), and garnered numerous prizes. Bertha was awarded First Prize by the National Academy of the American Water Color Society one year, and the Grand Prize of the Audubon Society. She was one of the founders of the now defunct World League of Hungarian Artists Abroad (Külföldi Magyar Képzomuvészek Világszövetsége), and received a Gold Medal from the Cleveland Árpád Akadémia in 1963. (Elena also received the Akadémia's gold medal in 1965.) Their work is found in numerous museums. The de Hellebranth sisters were devout Catholics, and this is evident in their many portraits of clerics and religious subjects. Bertha's religious sculptures include not only the Patrona Hungariae which was given to St. Emery Church by the Transylvanian Franciscans in 1957, but also several now in the Museum of the American Hungarian Foundation in New Brunswick, NJ, as for example a statue of St. Francis and another of Christ. Elena contributed several folk style panels to the Hungarian Pavilion's display at the 1939 New York World's Fair, while Bertha exhibited a couple of sculptures, one entitled "Sleeping Shepherd". Bertha and Elena became American citizens in the 1940's, but as Elena remarked, "While we are Americans, the Hungarian blood still boils through us."

TIRAGE A 350 EXEMPLAIRES. CELUI-CI, 1 DES 50 EXEMPLAIRES DE TÊTE SUR VÉLIN DE RIVES AVEC 4 DESSINS ORIGINAUX (au lieu des 3 annoncés). Fabien Coup dit « de Fréjac », connu sous le nom de Fabien Fabiano est un peintre et illustrateur français, né le 10 octobre 1882 à Lamballe en Bretagne, et mort en juin 1962 à Paris. Descendant d'une famille de marins (son trisaïeul était corsaire, son grand-père commandait le Cap-hornier Le Grand Pacifique), il était peu destiné à devenir un peintre de la femme. « Mais je touche quand même à la marine, expliquera-t-il, en ce sens que dans ma famille, c'est moi qui ai fait naufrage en faisant du dessin ». Autocritique de peu de fondement puisque Fabien Fabiano connut entre les deux guerres une immense réputation : Gaston Derys le comparait à Daumier et à Gavarni, André Thérive le qualifiait de « peintre sérieux de frivolités, comme le furent Fragonard et Lancret ». Enfant, il passe ses vacances dans le petit port de Dahouët, poursuit ses études à Saint-Servan et puis fait son service militaire à Saint-Malo. En 1900, il s'installe à Paris où il suit les cours de l'atelier préparatoire de l'École des beaux-arts. Il fréquente l'académie Colarossi et prend des cours avec Mucha. Mais c'est en tant que dessinateur humoristique qu'il se fait d'abord remarquer. Il ne tarde pas à publier dans les plus grands magazines : La Vie parisienne, Le Rire, Fantasio, Journal amusant, Life, New York Tribune, Match, France-Soir, etc. Une relative aisance matérielle lui permet alors de s'échapper de Montmartre et de rechercher ses modèles en Orient, à Tahiti et dans les Amériques.

        The Catcher in the Rye

      Boston: Little, Brown and Company. 1951. First. First edition. Near fine in an age-toned, near very good, price-clipped second printing dustwrapper (as it came to us). A true first edition, presumably someone supplied a second printing jacket to the book at a relatively early date: this copy had been in a private collection for decades as it is. The second printing jacket is pretty much identical to the first printing jacket except that it is 3mm taller and the original $3.00 price on the front flap has been typographically reset (not an issue on this price-clipped copy). The distinction between the first and second printings is often avoided by dealers, and many copies are offered as original that have the second printing jacket. A reasonably attractive copy of Salinger's first book, a post-war highspot and one of the most widely read and beloved coming-of-age novels ever written. Burgess 99. .
