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.

Ein Spiegelbild nationalsozialistischer Kulturbegriffe. Man ist überrascht auf wie viele Namen man stößt, die die Anerkennung des Nazi-Regimes suchten. Querschnitt durch die Kunst des Dritten Reiches. - Einbandentwurf von Richard Klein. Klein, (1890-1967), bekannt als Hitlers bevorzugter Künstler. Klein war Direktor der Münchner Kunstgewerbeschule. Klein was one of the artists exhibited at the "Great German Art Exhibition" held at the Haus der Kunst in Munich in 1937, meant as a contrast to the modern art condemned by the Nazis as Entartete Kunst. The poster for the exhibition, "The Awakening", was designed by Klein and also used as the front cover for the Nazi art review Art in the Third Reich. Neben Katalogen, Kunstdrucken und -zeitschriften zu den "Großen Deutschen Kunstausstellungen" im Haus der Deutschen Kunst, München, war die Postkarte mit über 1000 verschiedensten Motiven das wichtigste Medium, um die jeweils ausgestellten Werke einer breiten Schicht der Bevölkerung bekannt zu machen. Den Auftrag für die Produktion und den Vertrieb der offiziellen HDK-Postkarten bekam der Fotograf und NSDAP-Bildberichterstatter Heinrich Hoffmann, der seit 1919 einen Bilderdienst und Vertrieb von Kunstpostkarten hatte. Thematisch zeigen die Karten des HDK nur einen kleinen Ausschnitt der nationalsozialistischen Kunstproduktion: Zum einen sind nur Werke abgebildet, die es in eine der acht „Großen Deutschen Kunstausstellungen" geschafft hatten, zum anderen sind einige der maßgeblichen Künstler aus lizenzrechtlichen Gründen wenig oder gar nicht vertreten, z. B. der Bildhauer Arno Breker. (Zitat) - "Die Großen Deutschen Kunstausstellungen hatten eine herausragende Bedeutung für die nationalsozialistische Kunst- und Kulturpolitik. Gleichzeitig mit der ersten GDK fand die von Joseph Goebbels initiierte Ausstellung „Entartete Kunst" im Galeriegebäude am Münchner Hofgarten statt. In den Großen Deutschen Kunstausstellungen manifestierte sich das Selbstverständnis des „Dritten Reiches" als Kulturnation ebenso wie die Kunstauffassung des NS. Nur künstlerische „Höchstleistungen", so der Katalog von 1937, die „Ausdruck verleihen der Größe der aus Blut und Boden, aus nationalsozialistischer Haltung und Weltanschauung geborenen neuen Zeit", sollten präsentiert werden." (Zitat GDK Research). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC HISTORY OF THE HELLENISTIC WORLD

      Oxford Clarendon Press 1953 - 3 volumes. From the corrected sheets of the First Edition. Illustrated with 112 black and white plates and 11 figures in the text. Royal 8vo, publisher’s original dark green cloth, the spine lettered and ruled in gilt, in the rare printed dustjackets. xxiv, 602; viii, 603-1312; 1313-1779 pp. An unusually fine set, as pristine and near as mint. THE VERY SCARCE EXTENSIVE WORK OF HELLENISTIC HISTORY. By the publication of this text, Rostovtzeff had established himself as a consummate historian with his many historical works including THE HISTORY OF THE ANCIENT WORLD and THE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC HISTORY OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE. In this comprehensive set, he sets out to explore the social and economic aspects of the history of the Hellenistic world, which he specifically defines as the world created by Alexander’s conquest of the East that existed as long as the states which comprised it retained their independence (approximately from the time of Alexander to that of Augustus). In his preface, he states that he finds the social and economic aspects of Hellenistic life most key to understanding their society, as well as being the historical perspective that he feels "most competent" in presenting. As in his history on the Roman Empire, he utilizes not only written sources but also the most recent archaeological testimony to put together this text. A fine set of this seminal and all-encompassing work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        House of Flowers.

      New York, Saint Suber (producer),, [1953–54]. Seventy-two page typescript, carbon and ribbon, of the play's first act; with considerable corrections, deletions, and additions in Capote's hand. Capote began the play in 1953, and Harold Arlen was hired later that year to write the music and cooperate on the lyrics. Capote probably revised this typescript around that time, as he added in his hand to the typed title, "[The House of Flowers] A Musical Play by [Truman Capote] And Harold Arlen." Some 25 pages bear his corrections, ranging from simple cross-outs and corrected words, to several additonal lines or instructions. Also included is a carbon typescript of the second act as well as a copy of the finished mimeographed script.

        ANTIFONÁRIO MUDÉJAR MANUSCRITO E ILUMINADO SOBRE PERGAMINHO NO SÉCULO XIV / XV - LIVRO DE CANTOCHÃO IBÉRICO DO ADVENTO ATÉ À PÁSCOA.

      - Contendo 130 fólios numerados de II a CXXX com partituras musicais + 1 fólio de Índice. Fólios de 53x39 cm. Pastas de 59x43 cm. Encadernação da época em madeira, forrada a couro, com ferragens metálicas, brochos e com vestígios dos fechos e pequenas faltas nas ferragens. Apresenta a lombada restaurada profissionalmente, preservando internamente os tranchefilas intactos. Magnífico manuscrito de origem peninsular - Portugal ou sul de Espanha - proveniente da Colecção Capucho. Ilustrado com um magnifico frontíspicio iluminado com uma cercadura geométrica a vermelho e azul, apresentando ao longo do texto 276 capitulares iluminadas em estilo mudéjar, isto é, no estilo gótico-árabe peninsular. Algumas folhas apresentam pequenas manchas provocadas por pingos de cera dos círios. O missal é composto inteiramente por partituras musicais manuscritas a uma só mão, firme e regular. A notação musical é a 5 linhas, característica dos missais medievais peninsulares. O seu conteúdo tem uma perfeita unidade gráfica nas pautas musicais (40 linhas por página) e no desenho das letras capitulares. As capitulares são de dois tipos diferentes: a) as letras góticas a tinta negra e não iluminadas ao longo do corpo do texto; b) as 276 letras de tipo lombardo, iluminadas no início das missas e dos salmos, finamente desenhadas em tracejado linear no estilo da letra de "filigrana" da tradição moçárabe. Entre as 276 letras filigranadas encontram-se 2 subtipos: as letras de corpo monocolor (218 letras) e as letras de corpo bicolor (que são em número de 58). Estas últimas estabelecem o estilo e a origem do missal através das formas da partição entre o campo azul e o campo vermelho do corpo da letra, deixando uma pequena linha branca entre as duas cores, e contendo um desenho foliado em estilo oriental. Relativamente à decoração do fólio inicial a mesma é constituída por medalhões, filetes e quadrilongos entrelaçados, formando figuras geométricas entrelaçadas (com laços ou 'laçaria') segundo a tradição do simbolismo esotérico moçárabe. O maior medalhão deste fólio (no pé da página) foi desenhado no estilo árabe peninsular com a grafia cúfica de uma aláfia. Isto é, reproduzindo a palavra de saudação em nome de Alá Misericordioso, entretando retirado do centro da aláfia [aláfia é uma palavra árabe peninsular "al afiyah" que designa o símbolo da saudação]. Desta arte caligráfica encontramos em Portugal o melhor exemplo nos códices conimbricenses e em Espanha nos códices sevilhanos. Vide como referência bibliográfica: Spalding, Francis (1953) in Mudejar Ornament in Manuscripts. Esta investigadora da Hispanic Society of America recolheu, em Espanha, todos os elementos gráficos que identificam os manuscritos mudéjares, ou moçárabes, e a sua dispersão geográfica. O fólio inicial com o frontispício numerado II, podendo eventualmente faltar uma folha iluminada a página inteira, o que é muito pouco provável porque normalmente estes manuscritos quando completos têm a foliação par. É muito provável que inicialmente existisse um fólio inicial em branco tal como o que está presente no final com o índice. O Índice deste cantochão é um fólio final em branco, não numerado, que muito provavelmente foi manuscrito em ambas as faces no século XVI, e o mesmo atesta que este cantochão se encontra completo. Fólio inicial: 1º Domingo do Advento [com as capitular iluminada A ; seguida da capitular iluminada E [ Exaude nos domine ?] ; seguida da capitular iluminada A [ Ad te levavi animam meam? ]. Este livro de cantochão termina no Domingo de Ramos, no fólio CXXVI [ Domine ne longe. ]; e segue-se ainda uma parte do cântico do Oficium Improperium no fólio cxxx ( Pater si non potest ?); com uma nota (dito reclamo) de passagem para seguinte livro de cantochão com a continuação da litúrgia anual. Citamos neste cantochão os cânticos dos seguintes ofícios: - A Vigília no fólio xvii ( Hodie scietis ?); - Missa Maior do Dia de Natal no fólio xxvii ( Puer natus ?); - Ofício In Cómõe B. V. Maria

        Treasure Island

      J.M. Dent and Sons, Ltd.. LEATHER BOUND. B01M33KI2O Fine Binding. 1953 J.M. Dent and Sons, Ltd. (London), 5 1/2 x 7 3/4 inches tall full leather, signed Bayntun-Riviere brown polished calf binding, gilt ruled boards, five raised bands and gilt-lettered brown and red leather labels to spine, gilt dentelles to all board edges, all page edges gilt, marbled endpapers with pastedowns framed by gilt dentelles, magnificent illustrations by Salomon van Abbe - color frontispiece with tissue guard and seven other full-page color drawings and 30 inset black-and-white illustrations, xiv, 265 pp. Very slight rubbing to covers, mainly along front hinge. Otherwise, a very good to near fine copy - clean, bright and unmarked - of this handsomely bound copy of one of the most popular boys' books of all time. ~V~ Treasure Island is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of 'buccaneers and buried gold.' It was originally serialized in the children's magazine Young Folks between 1881 through 1882 under the title Treasure Island, or the mutiny of the Hispaniola, credited to the pseudonym 'Captain George North.' It was first published as a book on 14 November 1883 by Cassell & Co. Treasure Island is traditionally considered a coming-of-age story, and is noted for its atmosphere, characters, and action. It is also noted as a wry commentary on the ambiguity of morality - as seen in Long John Silver - unusual for children's literature. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. Its influence is enormous on popular perceptions of pirates, including such elements as treasure maps marked with an 'X,' schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen bearing parrots on their shoulders. . Very Good. 1953.
