        Jacqueline Kennedy Quotation of Robert Frost.

      - Jacqueline Kennedy hand writes the first lines from the Robert Frost poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening. From the collection of Mary Gallagher, who was the personal secretary to Jacqueline Kennedy from 1957 to 1964, which includes the Kennedy presidency. Before that, she was Senator John F. Kennedy's secretary and worked briefly for Jackie's mother. Robert Frost was one of President and Mrs. Kennedy's favorite poets. He was invited to present two of his poems at the Kennedy Inauguration on January 20, 1961. Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening is perhaps his best known work; and Frost himself admitted that it was "my best bid for remembrance." Mrs. Kennedy slightly misquotes the three concluding lines, "For I have promises to keep And miles to go before I sleep And miles to go before I sleep." Jacqueline wrote them on Mary Gallagher's shorthand notebook in her new home in Georgetown, in 1964, where she moved to after leaving the White House. Gallagher further explains in her affidavit: "This happened to be but one of the many poems that [Mrs. Kennedy] had chosen daily from little stacks of books in which she had placed paper markers to designate the pages that had the various passages for me to type up over the next few weeks. As she explained, they were 'for the fund-raising dinner in New York on the 16th, to be recited by Frederic March.' The poem was recited by March at the Kennedy Library dinner and the Democratic Convention that same year. Matted and framed opposite a photograph of President and Mrs. Kennedy and Robert Frost. The entire piece measures [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

Limited edition of 500 copies, this one of 100 specially bound with a second suite of the 8 pictures and 8 of the drawings. "Dryden, I felt, merited a Golden Cockerel edition, and a gloroius one. So I printed this selection from his prodigious output on a large page, in Eric Gill's 18-point Golden Cockerel type, leaded to lighten the effects of its very full body. At first I wondered where I couls find suitably grand illustrations, but suddenly remembered that before the war I had seen at Constable's a fascinating set of water-colours by Leslie Blanche…And so in due course it was finished and was for me a most satisfying book, maybe my best, and one I would be happy to be remembered by" (Christopher Sandford in Cook-a Hoop No. 206). From the library of Thomas Yoseloff, the last owner of the Golden Cockerel Press, by family descent, but with no ownership markings. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Moscow: Izdatel’stvo “Detskii Mir” 1957 - SCARCE First and Only Edition. Illustrated by Tatiana Mavrina. [12]pp. Original colour illustrated wraps. Full page colour illustrations throughout. Minor even toning to paper stock, light shallow creasing, mild nudging to corners, mild rubbing to edges. Light even toning, rubbing to wraps, light shallow creasing, rubbing to edges separation to foot, cap of spine. From the 1930’s, at the beginning of what would be a huge career spanning the Soviet period, Tatiana Mavrina was, to say the least, prolific during her time as an illustrator. The fingermarks and minor creasing shows the time that this book spent in the hands of children, yet it is remarkably intact. What is even more so is the lines and colours before she was to fully embrace the style that would make of her a household name. Not recorded on worldcat. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Ausarbeitungen und Entwürfe zum 2.Band der Einleitung in die Geisteswissenschaften (ca. 1970-1895); hrsg. von H. Johach u. F. Rodi. --- Wilhelm Dilthey (* 19. November 1833 in Biebrich; † 1. Oktober 1911 in Seis am Schlern, Südtirol) war ein deutscher Theologe, Gymnasiallehrer und Philosoph. Entgegen dem zu seiner Zeit stark verbreiteten Naturalismus entwickelte Dilthey ein lebensphilosophisches Fundament, welches das menschliche Leben und die Formen seines Ausdrucks nicht mehr nur nach Naturgesetzlichkeiten erklärte, sondern vielmehr die Eigengesetzlichkeit des menschlichen Geisteslebens zu verstehen suchte. Dilthey baute diesen Ansatz wissenschaftstheoretisch aus und formulierte in Abgrenzung zu den Naturwissenschaften eine Theorie der Geisteswissenschaften, als deren Begründer er gilt. Als deren Methode entwickelte er die Hermeneutik und die verstehende Psychologie in wesentlicher Weise weiter. Zur empirischen Anwendung brachte Dilthey seine Methoden in der Weltanschauungslehre, einem Deutungsschema für die seiner Meinung nach gescheiterten Systeme der Metaphysik. In ihr versuchte Dilthey aufzuzeigen, wie alle unterschiedlichen und sich widersprechenden metaphysischen Systeme ihren gemeinsamen Ursprung im Lebenszusammenhang des Menschen haben, zugleich kategorisierte er die historischen Ansätze nach verschiedenen \"Typen der Weltanschauung\". … Der Naturalismus hat als Strömung seit dem 17. Jahrhundert dazu geführt, dass ein mechanisch-kausales Naturverständnis auch auf das Innenleben des Menschen übertragen wurde, also seinem Geistes- und Gefühlsvermögen dieselben kausalen Gesetze unterstellt wurden, wie man sie bei der physikalischen Beschreibung der Natur vorfand. Kant hat dieses Problem zu lösen versucht, indem er die physikalische Natur als Naturbeschreibung durch die reine Vernunft auffasste. Diese Unterscheidung setzt eine Trennung von Ding an sich und Erscheinungen voraus. Dabei sind es laut Kant nur die Erscheinungen, die der Verstand in der Anschauung erfassen kann und denen sich Kausalität zusprechen lässt. Ob die Kausalität jedoch auch dem hinter der Erscheinung liegenden Ding an sich zukommt, bleibt ungewiss. Diese Erklärung hat allerdings nicht dazu geführt, dass die Naturwissenschaft ihre Ergebnisse als Konstruktionsmittel und hypothetische Erkenntnisse wertete. Vielmehr fand die Auffassung, dass die Naturwissenschaften ihren Gegenstand unmittelbar erklären könnten, einen ersten Höhepunkt im Positivismus und Naturalismus, wie ihn Comte und Mill vertraten. Hier ergab sich für Dilthey das offensichtliche Problem, dass, wenn alle Vernunftprozesse kausal determiniert sind, auch die positivistische und naturalistische Auffassung des Menschen selbst determiniert ist. Damit hebt sich jedoch der Anspruch auf Gewissheit unter verschiedenen alternativen Auffassungen selbst auf. Diltheys Lösung besteht in der Unterscheidung von Natur- und Geisteswissenschaften, welche zugleich die Autonomie und Freiheit des Vernunftwesens Mensch wiederherstellen soll: Statt in den Naturzusammenhang band Dilthey den Menschen dabei in den Geschichts- und Kulturzusammenhang ein, innerhalb dessen sich seine geistige Spontaneität zeigt und ausbildet. So wie Kant mit seiner Kritik der reinen Vernunft die erkenntnistheoretische Grundlage der Naturwissenschaften zu erklären versuchte, bemühte sich Dilthey in seinem lebenslangen Projekt einer Kritik der historischen Vernunft, die Grundlage für die von ihm so benannten Geisteswissenschaften zu legen. Der Titel einer historischen Vernunft zeigt dabei schon Diltheys Kritik an Kant. So ist bei Dilthey die Vernunft keine überzeitliche und unveränderliche Größe eines individuellen Subjekts, sondern hat ihre Ausprägung im Verlauf der Geschichte erfahren und wird dadurch konstatiert. In sie fließen also auch die geschichtlich gewordenen Handlungen und Praktiken des Kulturwesens Mensch mit ein. Diltheys grundsätzlich geschichtliche Orientierung ging dabei auf J.G. Droysens geschichtsphilosophische Vorstellungen des Historismus zurück. Die Kritik der historischen Vernunft bezieht sich jedoch nicht nur auf Kant, sondern erhebt Anspruch darauf, die gesamte Geschichte der Metaphysik zu betrachten. In Anlehnung an Hegels Phänomenologie des Geistes bezeichnete Dilthey sein Programm auch als Phänomenologie der Metaphysik. Anders als bei Hegel führte er den geschichtlichen Prozess nicht zu einem metaphysischen System des absoluten Wissens zusammen, welches schließlich absolute Gewissheit bieten sollte. Vielmehr nimmt seine Betrachtung den umgekehrten Weg, nämlich zu zeigen, wie sich eine Weltanschauung erst durch die vielen kleinen Gewissheiten ausprägt, die in der unmittelbaren Gewissheit des Erlebnisses und des Lebens selbst wurzeln. Dieses dient ihm dann auch als Fundament zur Begründung der Geisteswissenschaften. Ihr Ziel ist ein \"Verstehen des Lebens und der Geschichte\".

Pringle, Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, p. 61. First serialized in Astounding magazine. "Early instance of using children's science fiction for explaining and pushing ideas [here, alternate ways of organizing society] rather than merely relating exciting incidents." (Anatomy of Wonder) Between 1947 and 1958, Scribner's brought out one new Heinlein juvenile title a year. (This is the twelfth, of thirteen.) "What they have in common, beginning with the second book in the series, is that they center, not merely on Bildung, but on what C. G.. Jung called the "Individuation Crisis," in which a young person distinguishes himself from the psychological matrices of family and peer group and takes on personal, adult responsibilities. . . . Heinlein had written individuation stories before, but his explorations of this storytelling form extended and enriched the entire field of children's writing. . . . The series of Heinlein's juvenile books is considered by some critics to be the finest and most important portion of Heinlein's entire body of work. They have remained continuously in print for more than fifty years."
