        9 ms. Briefe, davon 8 mit eigenh. U.

      Buldern und Seewiesen. Zusammen 8 SS. auf 9 Bll. Verschiedene Formate.. An Hrn. Nägele und den Ornithologen Rudolf Kuhk von der Vogelwarte Radolfzell (1 bzw. 4 Briefe), den Ornithologen Ernst Schüz (3) und einen Dr. Wüst, u. a. über Vogelbeobachtungen und Experimente: "[...] An den beiden in Flensburg erlegten Graugänsen ist das eine bemerkenswert, daß die eine von ihnen in Seewiesen gestartet ist, die andere aber [...] in der Nähe von Celle abgegeben wurde, offenbar von dort davon geflogen ist. Die beiden müssen sich unterwegs irgendwo getroffen haben. Etwas anderes, was Sie interessieren dürfte: die Streifengans, die im Sommer 1961 von Fürstenfeldbruck zu Peter Schott und wieder zurückgeflogen ist, ist nunmehr nach Seewiesen zurück gekehrt und hat nach dreijähriger Abwesenheit ihren früheren Freund, einen Grauganter, offenbar wiedererkannt [...]" (an Rudolf Kuhk, 8. XI. 1962). - "[...] Wir haben eben ein Experiment mit unerwartetem Erfolg gemacht [...] Wir leiden an der zunehmenden Übervölkerung mit Graugänsen, die dadurch zustande kommt, daß junge Paare im Frühling abwandern, an benachbarten Seen brüten und im Herbst mit ihren Kindern zurückkehren in der Hoffnung, daß wir sie durch den Winter füttern werden. Das kommt uns nicht nur sehr teuer, sondern übersteigt auch die Tragbarkeit unseres Sees und stört unsere Beobachtungen, da die jungen unberingten Gänse, die sich auch schlecht einfangen und beringen lassen, die Übersicht über unsere Versuchstiere behindern. Dr. Fischer hatte nun die geniale Idee zu folgendem Versuch: Wir transportierten 40 Gänse nach dem Neusiedlersee und ließen sie dort an einer Stelle frei, wo sehr viele Graugänse sich aufhielten. Dabei hofften wir, unsere Gänse würden sich an die vielen wilden anschließen, mit ihnen den Zugweg Donauabwärts einschlagen und vielleicht wenigstens teilweise im Frühjahr hierher zurückkommen [...]" (an denselben, 21. XI. 1969). - Jeweils mit gedr. Briefkopf und im linken Rand gelocht (keine Textberührung).

[In dieser Ausgabe fehlen lediglich die Miscellaneous Writings, Bde. 4 und 5]. "John Nelson Darby (1800-1882) war zunächst Rechtsanwalt, wechselte nach seiner Bekehrung in den Pfarrberuf und wurde 1826 zum anglikanischen Pfarrer ordniert. In den folgenden Jahren entwickelte er eine kirchenkritische Haltung, gab seine Stellung an Pfarrer auf und wurde eine führende Persönlichkeit der Brüderbewegung. Seine erste Predigtreise führte ihn nach Limerick, anschließend an verschiedene Orte in Irland und England. Für die Entstehung von Brüdergemeinden in Deutschland war seine Begegnung mit dem Elberfelder Volksschullehrer und Evangelisten Carl Brockhaus bedeutsam. Mit diesem gab Darby auch die Elberfelder Bibelübersetzung heraus. Von 1845 an war Darby in mehrere theologische Auseinandersetzungen verwickelt, die zu Spaltungen innerhalb der Brüderbewegung führten. [...] Darby sah die Bibel in verschiedene heilsgeschichtliche Epochen, die so genannten "Haushaltungen" (engl. dispensations), aufgeteilt. Seiner Ansicht nach müssen Bibeltexte im Zusammenhang dieser Epochen gelesen werden. Besonders wichtig ist die strikte Trennung zwischen Israel (dem irdischen Volk Gottes mit irdischen Verheißungen und einer irdischen Zukunft) und der Gemeinde (dem himmlischen Volk Gottes mit himmlischen Verheißungen und einer himmlischen Zukunft). Dieses theologisch-hermeneutische Modell wurde als Dispensationalismus vor allem im amerikanischen Protestantismus weit über die Brüderbewegung hinaus bekannt und bildet u. a. die Grundlage der Scofield-Bibel. [...] Aufgrund seiner heilsgeschichtlichen Schau vertrat Darby außerdem die Ansicht, dass die Kirche nach der Zeit der Apostel irreparabel verfallen sei. Der Verfall habe bereits zur Zeit des Neuen Testaments begonnen. Darby stimmte in vielen Lehraussagen zwar mit den Freikirchen überein, kritisierte jedoch deren erklärte Absicht, die "Gemeinde nach dem Neuen Testament" wiederherstellen zu wollen. Eine Wiederherstellung der ursprünglichen Gemeinde Jesu sei nicht mehr möglich, da Gott nie etwas wiederherstelle, was der Mensch verdorben habe, und außerdem das apostolische Amt fehle. Für die gegenwärtige Gemeinde (die Elberfelder Bibel spricht von "Versammlung") sei es nur noch möglich, sich im Namen Jesu zu versammeln (Matthäus 18,20). Unter dieser Versammlung im Namen Jesu verstand Darby vor allem das sonntägliche "Brotbrechen" (Abendmahl). Seine Vision war es, dass sich alle Gläubigen an jedem Ort der Welt am "Tisch des Herrn" versammeln und in ihrer Zusammenkunft vom Heiligen Geist geleitet werden. Am "Brotbrechen" dürfen nach Darby jedoch nur solche teilnehmen, die sich durch gesunde Lehre, reinen Wandel und Trennung vom Bösen (dazu gehören auch die kirchlichen Strukturen) von den anderen unterscheiden." (vgl. Wikipedia-Artikel zu John Nelson Darby)". - Einbände leicht berieben und etwas angestaubt. Kapitale teils leicht angestaucht.

Some light rubbing to the bottom edges, near fine in a near fine dust jacket. On the eve of the Civil War the United States had already achieved rapid and sustained economic expansion. We had filled out our territorial boundaries, and the frontier was already encroaching upon the parched lands in the lee of the Rocky Mountains and moving east of the Sierra Nevadas. We were an industrial nation second only to Britain in manufacturing. Our expansion had been matched by an acceleration of economic well-being. The obstacles to American economic growth had been removed before the Civil War took place. That war was a costly and bitter interruption." "All readers will profit by the virtuosity with which the author has carried out his pioneering attempt to erect the structure of economic hisotry on the basis of a theory of development" (Carter Goodrich, American Historical Review). Douglas was jointly awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1993, "for having renewed research in economic history by applying economic theory and quantitative methods in order to explain economic and institutional change.

As New, very fine and unread, in a Fine jacket, vibrant and bright. All in all, virtually pristine. Goldstone & Payne A38b. & ¶Steinbeck&#39;s final novel, set in New England, the title a reference to the first two lines of Shakespeare&#39;s Richard III: "Now is the winter of our discontent / Made glorious summer by this sun [or son] of York." For the most part, Winter received a harsh critical reception (although the Atlantic Monthly called it a classic). Largely negative critics offered little appreciation of the risks Steinbeck had taken or the enormous technical innovations he had attempted in the text. But the following year the Swedish Academy awarded him the Nobel Prize for Literature, remarking specifically on five books from 1935 to 1939, then continued: "it is not possible to dwell at any length on individual works which Steinbeck later produced. If at times the critics have seemed to note certain signs of flagging powers, of repetitions that might point to a decrease in vitality, Steinbeck belied their fears most emphatically with The Winter of Our Discontent. Here he attained the same standard which he set in The Grapes of Wrath. Again he holds his position as an independent expounder of the truth with an unbiased instinct for what is genuinely American, be it good or bad." Now, fifty years later, "recent Steinbeck criticism seems to assert that The Winter of Our Discontent&#146;s structural complexity went unappreciated by early readers who failed to see it as a successful portrait and call to action against an ever-increasing decadence which had invaded the very soul of the times."

        Catch - 22

      New York:: Simon & Schuster,, 1961.. New York: Simon & Schuster, 1961. First edition of the author&#39;s first book. Octavo, original blue cloth. Near fine in a bright near fine dust jacket. Signed by the author on the title page. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A very bright copy. Catch-22, Joseph Heller&#39;s first and best-known novel, depicts a military world turned upside down. In Heller&#39;s World War II, a supplies manager has more power than a general, and anyone seeking a discharge on the grounds of insanity is declared sane enough to keep on fighting. When the novel appeared in 1961, World War II veterans ppreciated its satire of the military bureaucracy and chaos of war. By the mid-1960&#39;s, it had become a cult classic among counterculture activists for its biting indictments of war. Many consider the novel to be the definitive statement of the modern antiwar position. The phrase &#39;Catch-22&#39;, symbolizing the bsurdity of all institutional logic, has become a permanent part of our language" (NYPL Books of the Century 177).
