        "Geisterflotte" originales Emailbild ca. 35x75cm; farbige Kupferplatten auf Holz montiert; auf einen beigen, vom Künstler selbst gefertigten Holzrahmen (66x95cm) montiert; dort verso handschriftlich betitelt, signiert und datiert "1969"

      . Das in vielen Ausstellungen gezeigte und zu den Hauptwerken Hermann Schüttes zählende Emailbild mit zwei kleinen, den Gesamteindruck nicht störenden Abplatzungen. Eine am rechten Plattenrand über dem Taucher, eine am Taucher (Arm) und eine am oberen, rechten Bildrand. [Näheres zur aufwendigen Herstellung dieser Bilder entnehmen Sie bitte dem angefügten Text von Hanns Theodor Flemming.] Hermann Schütte, ein zu unrecht Vergessener. Er war Maler, Graphiker und Schriftsteller. Ein junger Wilder, Dadaist, Phantastischer Realist, Surrealist. Mit vielen Großen seiner Zeit bekannt, mit Kurt Schwitters und Heinrich Vogeler befreundet. Zeitlebens ein Schaffender - creo ergo sum! Er rang mit sich und der Kunst, suchte immer neue Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten und -formen. Ein experimentierfreudiger und unabhängiger Geist, nicht trotz, sondern wegen seiner beruflichen Tätigkeit. Der erfolgreiche - wie man heute sagen würde - mittelständische Unternehmer - scherte sich nicht um Zeitgeist und mainstream. Er mußte weder sich, noch seine Kunst vermarkten. Er suchte und strebte nach Kunst, nicht nach Anerkennung. Seine Eigenwilligkeit scheint ihm der öffentliche, staatliche Kunstzirkus und Museumsbetrieb nicht vergessen zu haben und straft ihn deshalb mit weitgehender Mißachtung. Hermann Schütte war eben frei nach Karl Kraus unbequem und Sand im Getriebe der Welt. Ich möchte Hermann Schütte die Anerkennung zollen, die ihm zukommt und deshalb freue ich mich, einige seiner Arbeiten anbieten zu können. Möge aus dem fast Vergessenen wieder ein guter Bekannter werden. Klassische Moderne Kunst auf diesem Preisniveau ist nicht nur eine Kaufempfehlung, sondern ein echtes Muß! Zur genaueren Orientierung über Schüttes Leben und Schaffen mögen ein Zeitungsartikel anläßlich seiner Ausstellung in der Hamburger Kunsthalle 1957 und die Kopie eines Ausstellungs-faltblattes dienen..

      London: Collins, 1957. London: Collins, 1957. pp xvi, 255, with 51 b/w photographs & 58 drawings and diagrams. This copy has the very rare plain green variant jacket (see bibliographic note below). No. 15 in the New Naturalist monograph series. Dust jacket fine, slight fading to the spine area, not price clipped, no loss, edges crisp, now protected in an archival sleeve. Green buckram binding fine. Contents clean and tight, no inscriptions, bookseller's sticker (Foyles) to front paste-down otherwise unmarked. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. (Bibliographic note: The Hawfinch was printed only once and so all copies are genuine first editions, but not all were bound up at the same time - three different binding variants exist. The first binding variant is smaller than the other two and in fact the smallest of all NN monograms, this and the second binding variant both sport the Ellises' jacket, whereas the third is fitted with a plain green jacket and by far the rarest.

        Le clochard. Étude de psychologie sociale (tapuscrit original)

      Paris 1957 - In-4° relié pleine toile grège, pièce de titre noire gravée, 554 pages interfoliées. Professeur de psychologie à la Faculté de Nice, Alexandre Vexliard est mort le 20 janvier 1997. A la fin des années quarante, il fut en France le pionnier de l'étude psycho-sociologique de ceux que l'on appelait alors les « clochards ». Pourtant, tandis que les thèmes de la « nouvelle pauvreté », de l'« exclusion », de la « désaffiliation » (R. Castel) ou de la « disqualification sociale » (S. Paugam), connaissent une vogue certaine dans les sciences sociales depuis une bonne dizaine d'années, le travail de Vexliard - dont la pièce maîtresse est publiée en 1957 sous le titre Le clochard. Étude de psychologie sociale - demeure largement méconnu. Rares sont ceux qui semblent l'avoir lu et qui considèrent que son enquête « reste toujours une référence, en particulier parce qu'elle permet des comparaisons avec la période actuelle » (Damon, 1996a, pp. 89-91). Et surtout nul ne semble mesurer l'ampleur et l'actualité, au moins partielle, de ses apports méthodologiques et théoriques. Les thèmes qui dominaient les sciences sociales en France, en 1950, étaient ceux des classes sociales, du travail et des inégalités. Du côté de la déviance, le sujet porteur était celui de la délinquance juvénile. Mais, après avoir déchaîné les passions à la fin du XIXème siècle, l'étude du vagabondage et de la mendicité n'intéressait apparemment plus personne. Vexliard le constate avec raison : « il y a quarante ans, le vagabondage des adultes avait donné lieu à des recherches nombreuses en France aussi bien que dans d'autres pays. Est-ce à dire que nous avons abordé l'étude d'une catégorie sociale en voie de disparition ? Le problème est plus complexe ; il se pose surtout en des termes nouveaux ». Quoi qu'il en soit, Vexliard n'innove pas seulement par son sujet, mais aussi - et même surtout - par sa méthode et par son apport théorique à l'étude des mécanismes de la « désocialisation ». C'est tout aussi bien la sociologie et l'histoire du phénomène que l'étude psychologique de la personnalité et des parcours individuels qui intéressent l'auteur. Sa thèse se fonde sur l'étude approfondie de soixante et un cas, extraits de près de quatre cents entretiens réalisés à Clermont-Ferrand, Marseille, Montpellier et Paris entre 1948 et 1953, dans des conditions et avec une profondeur variable selon la disponibilité psychologique des individus. Vexliard estime que « seule la méthode dite des cas [.] permet de connaître, dans leur diversité, les conduites humaines concrètes » (ibid., pp. 13-14). Aussi, afin de ne pas opérer une quelconque sélection préalable (consciente ou pas), il convient de s'intéresser au « tout venant de la population des vagabonds, les individus étant pris au hasard des rencontres » (ibid., p. 28). En réalité, seule une légère sélection s'est opérée de fait, certains clochards « peu nombreux » refusant les entretiens, étant « en état de perpétuelle ivresse » ou de trop grande « confusion mentale (en général sénile) ». Comment aborder les clochards ? Vexliard a bien tenté la méthode de l'observation participante : « à plusieurs reprises, nous nous sommes mêlé à la vie des clochards, nous avons partagé leur existence, en portant une tenue appropriée ». Mais si cette méthode d'approche est assez facile, les résultats sont « décevants » : « les clochards ne s'interrogent pas d'habitude mutuellement sur leur passé. Il nous était impossible par ce procédé d'obtenir des renseignements biographiques individuels et, à plus forte raison, des indications méthodiques et suivies » (ibid., p. 30). Dès lors il s'est tourné vers la méthode des entretiens individuels, en l'appliquant cependant de façon peu conventionnelle compte tenu des conditions très particulières de la situation [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

One of 44 copies, this copy letter "C" is one of ten lettered copies in browned patterned paper. Inscribed by the author on the front fly with a Christmas greeting. In original mailing envelope hand-addressed by Prokosch (on which an old ink bookseller's description and price appears). A brief poem, one of the author's rare "butterfly books". Prokosch was an American novelist of remarkable promise who later fell under a cloud for manufacturing some spurious "rare first editions", which he did while experimenting with the handpress he used to manufacture the butterfly books. Additionally he reprinted some of the books between 1978-1980, but the provenance of this book, and the owner's notes that accompany the book indicate that it was obtained in the 1950s. His reputation has suffered despite the fact that his books were both a critical and popular success at the time of publication. OCLC locates five copies. .

        The Tall T (Original Film Poster)

      Culver City, CA: Columbia Pictures, 1957. Original one sheet poster for the second of Budd Boetticher's seven key Westerns in Ranown cycle, all starring Randolph Scott. "The Tall T" is based on a story by Elmore Leonard and the first of five films released through Columbia Pictures. The Leonard story was first published in "Argosy" magazine in 1955, then published as a paperback original in 1957 by Avon as a "tie-in" to the film (though it is not a novelization).& & Near the end of Randolph Scott's career, producer Harry Brown, Scott, and Boetticher began work on a series of intelligent films that would combine Scott's minimalist approach to acting with Boetticher's lean, spartan approach to filmmaking. The result was a canon of films today referred to as the "Ranown" cycle, a rich canon of films that form an incredibly strong stylistic whole. Boetticher's approach to storytelling was traditional in the sense that it involved traditional Western characters, but revisionist in that his protagonist invariably worked alone, and sought his own brand of morality rather than one established by tradition, government, and family. & & This second entry, a story that takes place over a 24-hour period, finds Scott defending two newlyweds against ransom-seeking stagecoach bandits. In his excellent review of American film Westerns, "The American West from Fiction (1823-1976) into Film (1909-1986)," author Jim Hitt writes: "The main struggle is between Brennan [Scott] and Usher [Richard Boone], who are mirror images of one another. Both are laconic loners. Brennan is a slightly world-weary, puritanical hero who finds himself at the mercy of the more flamboyant yet desperately lonely Usher. The existentialist end where Brennan outduels Usher is a hollow victory for Brennan who has failed to prove that he is either stronger or wiser. In many ways the bleakest of Boetticher's films, even better than the good short story on which it is based."& & 27 x 41 inches, linen-backed. Near Fine. & & Alloway, p. 87. Hitt, p. 232-233. Kitses, pp. 91-121.
