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 und Aktzeichnungen.<<< ( Weitere Bilder auf Anfrage &#150; further pics at request ) [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Road Not Taken

      New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1955 New York: Henry Holt and Company, 1955. First edition, third printing. Inscribed by Frost to English actor Denys Blakelock on front free endpaper in Bread Loaf, VT, dated 1856. Introduction and commentary by Louis Untermeyer, illustrations by John O'Hara Cosgrove II. Publisher's green cloth, stamped with Cosgrove's illustration to front board in white, lettered in white to spine, top edge stained green, in original unclipped dust jacket. A very good copy with some light sunning to top edge and a touch of wear to extremities, text block edges lightly toned, dust jacket with some wear and loss to corners and spine ends as well as sunning to spine. Overall, a pleasing copy. From the library of Pulitzer Prize winning author Kenneth Silverman. Actor Denys Blakelock was the author of Portrait of a Farjeon (1966), a memoir of Frost's friend and fellow poet, Eleanor Farjeon, who died in 1965. Frost inscribed this copy to Blakelock in Bread Loaf, Vermont, where the poet taught English at Middlebury College at the time. This collection of Frost's most famous and well-loved poems was compiled by Louis Untermeyer, who introduces the work with a brief biography of Frost. Throughout the volume, Untermeyer's sparse commentary adds to the context and meaning of Frost's poetry with brief statements and discussions of various pieces as they appear. Pieces selected for this work include the title poem, "The Road Not Taken," and other notable works such as "Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening," and "Nothing Gold Can Stay." Chiefly a biographer, Professor Kenneth Silverman co-directed the American Civilization program at NYU, and won not only the Pulitzer but also the Bancroft Prize for his work The Life and Times of Cotton Mather. Other notable works of his include biographies of Edgar Allan Poe and Samuel F. B. Morse. A magician himself, he also profiled the life of Harry Houdini. . Inscribed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Dust Jacket.

        Der Kampf um die Autobahnen. Geschichte der Autobahnen in Deutschland 1907 - 1935 unter Berücksichtigung ähnlicher Pläne und Bestrebungen im übrigen Europa. (Memoiren)

      Berlin, Wigankow, 1955. Erste (und einzige) Ausgabe. 192 Seiten mit Skizzen und Fotos. Illustr. Or.Karton. Sehr selten. \",,,Todt hatte Anfang Juli 1937 von Willy Hof, einem der frühen Verfechter und ausgezeichneten Kenner der Autobahnidee in Deutschland, ein Manuskript von Kurt Kaftan mit dem Titel \"Autostraßen im Europa\" erhalten. Dieses Manuskript, auf Kaftans Schrift \"Europa braucht Autobahnen\" basierend und ins Italienische übersetzt, hatte Hof auch an Puricelli in Mailand gesandt. Sowohl Todt als auch Puricelli, sind empört über Kaftans Schrift, beiden gingen augenscheinlich die Positionen in der Schrift Kaftans zu weit. Der Generalinspektor und der Senator reklamieren in dem nun folgenden Schriftverkehr, ihren und den Anspruch ihrer \"Führer\" auf die geistige Urheberschaft an den Autobahnen. In verschiedenen seiner Schriften hat Kaftan immer wieder die italienische Vorreiterrolle und die der HAFRABA in Deutschland betont, was Todt natürlich ein Dorn im Auge war. Schon zu dieser Zeit maßregelte Todt, verbunden mit einer offenen Drohung, den Schriftsteller Kaftan: \"Die Reichsautobahnen, wie wir sie jetzt bauen, haben nicht als von der \'HAFRABA\' vorbereitet zu gelten, sondern einzig und allein als \'Die Straßen Adolf Hitlers\'\" (Vgl.BArch, R 4602/729, Bl. 79, Aufzeichnungen von Theodor Krebs). Andererseits galt Kaftan auch als Kritiker von Puricellis Planungen und bezeichnete dessen im Jahre 1935 veröffentlichte Fassung eines internationalen Autobahnnetzes auf Grund des nur peripher berücksichtigten Nordeuropa als unausgegoren. Kaftan selbst wurde daraufhin offenbar von Todt und Puricelli unter Druck gesetzt, die aus ihrer Sicht \"großen\" Fehler in seinem Manuskript zu beseitigen. Anderenfalls wollte Puricelli mit einer \"Publikation den wahren Hergang\" schildern. \"Ich nehme an, dass Herrn Dr. Todt ich selbst einen Gefallen tun werde, wenn ich damit zur Kenntnis bringe, was in der Autostraßenplanung und im Autobahnenbau alles geleistet wurde, bevor er die Ehre und das Glück hatte, vom Führer an die erste Stelle gesetzt zu werden.\" Kaftan bezeichnete Hof einmal (in: Die Autobahn 7/1933) als \"den Frontkämpfer\". In Ober-Ramstadt, wo Hof 1956 starb, wird er als der \"Vater der Autobahnen\" bezeichnet. Versand D: 5,00 EUR

His first great triumph was to rescue the German Mark from the inflation of 1921. As the Nazi avalanche swelled, Hitler persuaded him to occupy the Presidential chair at the Reichsbank. but (Schacht) soon saw that the Fuhrer was driving relentlessly towards war. A quarrel resulted and he left the Government, remaining under a cloud until he was arrested towards the close of the regime." - from dust jacket. Schact was later aquitted of war crimes at Nuremberg. Average wear to unmarked book. Above-average wear and soiling to dust jacket which is now preserved in archival-grade Brodart.
