        46 eigenh. Briefe und 77 eh. Brief- und (Bild)Postkarten mit U. bzw. Paraphe sowie 6 Telegramme von und 92 Schriftstücke an Lili Marberg.

      Verschiedene Orte, ca. 1933 bis 1962. - Zusammen 273 SS. von und 103 Bll. an L. M. Verschiedene Formate. Beiliegend 77 Bll. Fragmente, Notizen, Mitteilungen und Briefe an dritte sowie eine Photographie mit eh. Widmung auf der Bildseite. Schöner, über einen langen Zeitraum reichender Briefwechsel mit ihrer Freundin und möglicherweise auch Lebensgefährtin der späten Jahre Adele (Deli) Niedzielska (vermutlich die Tochter des Baurats Julian Niedzielski). Die überwiegend undatierten Briefe, geschrieben auf Gastspielreisen, Urlaubs- und Kuraufenthalten, beinhalten zumeist Mitteilungen privater Natur, die je nach ihrem Entstehungsdatum ganz unterschiedlichen Charakters sind: Mal sind es launige Rüffel und Schilderungen amüsanter Begebenheiten, wie sie aus der Frühzeit der Freundschaft datieren dürften, dann wieder sehr eindrückliche Schilderungen von Begegnungen, zumeist aber in Schrift und Inhalt sehr berührende Zeugnisse der alternden, kranken Künstlerin, die noch in hohem Alter auf der Bühne zu sehen war. "In der Weihnachtswoche darf man nicht lügen!", heißt es etwa in einem frühen, vermutlich 1933 datierenden Brief. "Und Du hast schon gelogen! Du hast gesagt, daß Du für 24. nicht eingeladen bist! Erstens hast Du mich beraten, als ich Dich frug 'Was werden wir denn am Weihnachtsabend kochen?' Zweitens weißt Du genau, daß ich u. Karl [d. i. ihr Gatte, der Architekt Karl Hans Jaray, geb. 1874] mit Dir rechnen! [.] Also hol mich ab, wenn Du die Dely der ersten Monate bist - Gruss und Kuß Veronika!". - "Als ich in München ankam, war auf meinem Zimmer ein gr[oßes] Blumenarrangement vom Gauleiter der Stadt München, Minister [Adolf] Wagner, und so ging es fort. Im braunen Haus wurde ich dem Führer vorgestellt, - ein großer Augenblick! Neben ihm stand Goebbels, der mir wie ein alter Bekannter die Hand schüttelte mit vielsagenden, strahlenden Augen, er wollte damit sagen: 'Ich hab Sie ja kürzlich gesehen!' (Man kann nie wissen). Kurz darauf kam der Führer an unseren Tisch und blieb lange! Es war unsagbar aufregend [.]" (undat. Br.). - "Deli! Jetzt bohrt sich die spitze Nadel tief in den Rücken, ich vergehe vor Schmerzen - Tag für Tag, ich kann es nicht mehr aushalten - Nun bin ich wieder Stunden lang auf dem Bett gekauert u. die langen Nadeln stecken noch immer! Du hast so viele kleine Dinge für mich in Ordnung gebracht, tue jetzt auch etwas Grosses für mich, geh zu Rottmann [?, wohl der Hausarzt L. Ms.] [.], er soll Dir die Wahrheit sagen was aus mir wird, er weiss es genau u. will es nicht sagen - dieses Warten auf das schlimme Ende, der Druck auf der Brust, wenn Du ahnen könntest!!" (undat. Br.). - "Ich habe das bestimmte Gefühl, dass es recht bald zu Ende geht mit mir, - diese 'Vergreisung' hat mit einem Mal eingesetzt, der ganze Körper ist fertig, es ist schlimm, dieses langsame Sterben" (undat. Br.). - Die Notizzettel meist mit kurzen Notaten zu Fragen des Haushalts, Einkaufslisten, Namen und Telephonnummern u. a., daneben aber auch in einer vom Alter schwer gewordenen Hand der "Nachtrag in mein Testament: 1. Ich will verbrannt werden [.]". - Unter den Briefen, Postkarten u. a. an L. M. findet sich u. a. ein ms. Brief mit eh. U. des ehedem amtsführenden Stadtrats für Kultur und Volksbildung Hans Mandl (1899-1970), ein Schreiben des damals amtierenden Unterrichtsministers Felix Hurdes (1901-1974) betr. der Verleihung des Professorentitels an L. M. (die gleichfalls eh. unterzeichnete Urkunde anbei), Schreiben von Wr. Bürgermeistern u. a. - Lili Marberg (1876-1962) gehörte von 1911 bis 1950 dem Wiener Burgtheater an. Seit 1936 auch Ehrenmitglied, spielte sie zunächst in Stücken Wedekinds, Hauptmanns und Ibsens, gab später vorwiegend Königinnen und mütterliche Frauen und galt weithin als vorzügliche Charakterdarstellerin. Zu ihren Hauptrollen zählten die Desdemona und Hedda Gabler sowie die Helena in "Vor Sonnenaufgang". Ihre einzige Filmrolle war die des Fräulein Munk in Walter Reischs "Silhouetten" (1936).

        King Rat (First Edition)

      Little, Brown & Company, Boston 1962 - First Printing. Clavell's first and most collectible work. The book is very good+, with just some slight pushing at the spine ends, very light soiling to the text block edges, a tiny dampstain to the top edge of the text block, and a barely visible erased pencil inscription to the front endpaper. The price-clipped dust jacket - which is protected by a removable Brodart archival cover - is in very good condition. There is some light wear/soiling and a few tiny professionally repaired edge tears, a small professionally repaired 1/2" closed tear near the top of the front panel, and some slight wear/very light chipping at the corners and spine ends. This of course is a very delicate paper wrapper - accounting for its scarcity - and has held up rather well. Overall a very nice collectible copy of Clavell's most difficult to find work. I ship all of my books bubble-wrapped in sturdy, very well-padded boxes, so they are guaranteed to arrive in the exact same condition as when they left.

        Design for the mural at the entrance to the Detroit Public Library.

      Detroit, Mich. 1962 - Gouache painting. 24 x 63.5 inches. (61 x 160 cm.). On illustration board mounted on a larger board with pencil notations relative to the future mural on the margins of the mount. Undulating due to past moisture. Literature: Millard Sheets.

For example, in the painting, a text by Nietzsche is at the far right and this is replaced by a text from Whitman in the actual mural. From the estate of Millard Sheets. Authenticated by Tony Sheets, the artist's son, on the verso. Better image available. Exhibited at: A Tapestry of Life. The World of Millard Sheets. The Millard Sheets Center for the Arts at Fairplex, Pomona, California. September 2007.
