        Ein Mann auf dem Drahtseil. George Wilson. Zwei Erzählungen. Deutsch von Arno Schmidt. Mit Zeichnungen von Wilhelm M. Busch (= rororo 86).

      Rowohlt, Hamburg 1953 - 151 S., 3 Blatt. Orig.-Broschur mit Leinenrücken. Auf dem Vortitel mit eigenhändiger, persönlicher Widmung des Übersetzers: "Herrn A. Klüser zur Erinnerung an ein fragwürdiges Bauprojekt. Arno Schmidt. Kastel, den 19.II.1955." Schmidt finanzierte seine Existenz als Schriftsteller zunächst vor allem mit der "Brotarbeit" des Übersetzens. Seine prekäre Wohnsituation als "Umsiedler" war ihm ständiger Anlaß für Pläne, ein eigenes Häuschen zu bauen oder zu kaufen. Als der Vertreter einer Mainzer Bausparkasse vorsprach und auf zinsfreie Darlehen für Flüchtlinge hinwies, notiert Alice Schmidt in ihr Tagebuch: "Bausparkasse scheint auszufallen, dauert zu lange. Mann war erfreut: endlich einen lebenden Schriftsteller zu sehen. Hätte mal Herzog als Student gesehn. War sehr interessiert, aber A[rno] brach immer ab. Auf meine Veranlassung hin gab A[rno] (ungern!) dann zur Erinnerung einen Mann auf dem Drahtseil, mit reingeschriebener Erinnerung und er ließ ein paar Hausillustrierte da, die wir uns am abend ansahen." Schmidt erwarb 1958 schließlich das berühmte Wohnhaus in Bargfeld. Aufgrund seiner Zurückgezogenheit sind Widmungsexemplare von Arno Schmidt recht selten. Papierbedingt ist die Tinte gering verlaufen und hat bis auf das Titelblatt durchgeschlagen, sonst handelt es sich jedoch um ein ordentliches, gut erhaltenes Exemplar mit nur leichten Gebrauchsspuren.

        Front grill concept design

      1953 - Watercolour and pastel on composition board. Signed, "Arbib '53" A striking frontal encounter with an innovative grill design This full-on, confrontational drawing of a new front grill by RIchard Arbib embodies the thrill of innovation that played such a large part of car design in the 1950's. During this rather euphoric period, cars became more open, colourful and "modernistic": curvilinear and sleek. In Arbib's picture, we come right up against a shield-like center piece that branches out to either side in a no nonsense, two level bumper and that threatens to knock us down, despite the genial, middle-aged driver. Elements of this front configuration appeared in many incarnations in subsequent years. Richard Arbib was a tireless industrial designer whose work ranged from watches to yachts, and included many lasting automotive innovations. Born in Gloversville, New York of Egyptian parentage, he attended Pratt. He worked on GM's exhibition at the 1939 World's Fair, and then various automotive, industrial and military designers (during the war) until he set up his own firm in New York in 1949. His work during the 1950's was especially important to the future as many of his dynamic and "space-age" designs were incorporated into production models of the late 50's, 60's and 70's. He also supplied illustrations to science fiction magazines and novels. Scharf, Richard H. Arbib 1917-1995 Visionary American Designer . 2006. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Philosoph (1889 - 1976): Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Ma. Heidegger") auf der Rückseite eines Porträt-Fotos (Original-Abzug).

Geburtstag (am 26. Sept.) und empfiehlt die Arbeit eines Schülers für die von Martin herausgegebenen Kant-Studien: "Frbg. [Freiburg] 4. Okt. 53. // Liebe Frau Martin! / Ihre Glückwünsche und das Geschenk haben mich sehr erfreut. Zwar besitze ich die Briefe schon (von Herrn Obermüller geschenkt, welches Exemplar ich meinem Bruder [Fritz H.] bringe, der daran das gleiche Interesse hat). Meine Frau und ich haben schöne Wochen der Arbeit und Erholung auf der Hütte verbracht. / Sagen Sie bitte Ihrem Mann, daß im Sommer ein sehr begabter Grieche, der vor einigen Semestern 1 ½ Jahre bei mir im Seminar war, mit einer sehr guten Arbeit bei Funk promoviert hat, eine Arbeit die ich für die Beihefte der neu erstehenden Kantstudien für sehr geeignet halte. Falls die Einreichung möglich sein sollte, bitte ich um kurze Nachricht nach Meßkirch (Kreis Stockach) wo ich in der nächsten Zeit arbeite. / Mit frischen [? nur dieses Wort ist ein wenig verwischt] Grüßen von uns für Sie beide / Ihr Ma Heidegger" - // - Fritz Heidegger (1894-1980) galt seinerzeit als der beste Kenner der Schriften seines fünf Jahre älteren Bruders. - "Meine Frau": Elfride Heidegger, geb. Petri (1893-1992). - Die "Hütte" ist die berühmte, 1922 erbaute Hütte in Todtnauberg (Südschwarzwald). - Der Baden-Württembergische Landkreis Stockach wurde 1973 aufgelöst. Meßkirch, die Heimatstadt Heideggers liegt heute im Landkreis Sigmaringen. - // - Gottfried Martin (1901-1972) studierte zunächst Chemie, Physik und Mathematik und erst später Philosophie. Nach zwischenzeitlicher Arbeit in der Industrie promovierte er 1934 bei Heidegger in Freiburg mit dem Thema "Arithmetik und Kombinatorik bei Kant". Seine Habilitationsschrift über Wilhelm von Ockham wurde u. a. von dem Kölner Philosophieprofessor Artur Schneider, welcher wiederum 1913 in Freiburg Heideggers Doktorvater gewesen war, positiv beurteilt. Gottfried Martin lehrte ab 1943 an den Universitäten Jena und Köln. Zur Zeit unserer Karte (1953 bis 1958) war er Professor an der Universität Mainz und gab ebenfalls ab 1953 gab er die Kant-Studien heraus, die er mit Paul Menzer wieder begründet hatte. 1969 wurde er Erster Vorsitzender der Kant-Gesellschaft.

The first paper identifies the double helix structure; the second, by Maurice Wilkins, A.R. Stokes, and H.R. Wilkins, explains how the structure divides prior to mitosis so that each strand can act as a cell; the third paper by Rosalind E. Franklin & R.G. Gosling adds additional material on the molecular structure of nucleic acids.The discovery of the structure of DNA was a race between research groups working independently. The 1962 Nobel Prize was awarded to Watson, Crick, and Wilkins for their discoveries concerning the molecular structure of nucleic acids and its significance for information transferred in living material.
