"Le resume des idees de Rousseau sur la musique (...), le plus impitoyable des requisitoires contre la musique francaise qui fit scandale au point, dit-il, de faire oublier la querelle du clerge et du Parlement. En maniere de represailles, les musiciens de l'Opera brulerent Rousseau en effigie dans la cour du theatre" (Catalogue exposition Rousseau, B.N. 1962, n° 116). (Bibliotheque Cortot, p. 171.

" Experimentateur ne, en parfaite harmonie avec son temps, Caylus cherche a voir les choses de l'interieur et se passionne pour les sciences. Il s'attache egalement a retrouver les techniques des Anciens, notamment en ce qui concerne la peinture a l'encaustique (...). C'est en Angleterre que son travail recut la plus grande audience, notamment grace a l'interet que lui porterent Horace Walpole et le ceramiste Josiah Wedgwood " (Exposition : "Caylus, mecene du Roi. Collectionner les antiquites au XVIIIe siecle", Paris, BnF, 2002). La planche frontispice allegorique represente Minerve qui detourne le peintre de sa methode traditionnelle en lui montrant la technique de l'encaustique. (K. Peeters, 'Bibliographie du comte de Caylus', 1755, p. 42 et A. Fontaine, Vies d'artistes du XVIIIe. Paris, 1910. p. 215). 3- Seconde edition augmentee, parue un an apres l'originale.

Inhaltsreiche Korrespondenz mit dem Filmwissenschaftler Walter Fritz (geb. 1941), zumeist über Fragen zum Urheberrecht und über die aktuelle Wiener Theaterlandschaft: "Ihren Mitteilungen zufolge führt Ihr Stück ja nicht den Titel ANATOL, sondern MEIN LEBEN IN ANATOLIEN und daher besteht wohl keine Gefahr urheberrechtlicher Schwierigkeiten [...]" (Br. v. 14. IX. 1963). - "Ich erkläre Ihnen nun zum dritten Mal, dass ich Ihnen keineswegs den Vorwurf des Plagiats machen würde [...]" (Br. v. 26. IX. 1963). - "Als Erbe und Eigentümer der Rechte an den Werken meines Vaters habe nur ich über Veröffentlichungen aus dem Nachlass zu entscheiden. Selbstverständlich habe ich nichts dagegen einzuwenden, dass Sie die von Ihnen genannten Auszüge aus dem Nachlass im Rahmen Ihres Aufsatzes zum Abdruck bringen. Ich muss Sie nur darum ersuchen, mir den Aufsatz vorzulegen, bevor Sie ihn an die Redaktion der Filmkunst absenden. Ausserdem muss ich Sie darum ersuchen, an geeigneter Stelle (über die wir uns ja dann noch unterhalten können) ausdrücklich festzustellen, dass die betreffenden Zitate aus dem Nachlass mit meiner Einwilligung zum Abdruck gelangen und dass ich Ihnen das Material zu diesem Zweck zur Verfügung gestellt hatte [...]" (Br. v. 11. X. 1962). - "[...] Gleichzeitig mit Ihrem Brief traf [...] die neue Nummer [...] der Monatsschrift der Vereinigung zur Gründung des Wiener Ensembles' ein und da lese ich die von Ihnen [...] verfasste Aufforderung: ... löst euch von der Grösse, die doch in Wirklichkeit nur die Steifheit eines Museumsbetriebes ist ...'. Zu den Repertoiretheatern, die von Ihnen in dieser Weise charakterisiert werden, gehört natürlich auch das Theater in der Josefstadt und seine Filialbühnen. An den Bühnen dieses Museumsbetriebes wurden in den letzten Jahren - die folgende Aufzählung erfolgt aus dem Gedächtnis uns ist ebenso willkürlich wie lückenhaft - Werke von Anouilh, Pirandello, Beckett, Ionesco, Osborne, Strindberg, Horvath, Walser, Musil, Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams, Gorki, Ostrowski, Gogol, O'Neill, Moliere, Shakespeare, Goldoni, Hauptmann, Kleist, Goethe, aufgeführt - Autoren, die Sie offensichtlich für verstaubt halten, denn nur so lässt sich ja die Charakterisierung Steifheit eines Museumsbetriebes' auslegen [...]" (Br. v. 14.

With the unprinted acetate dust jacket. An excellent copy in the battered acetate. Frontis portrait of the author. First edition, sole printing. One of just 100 numbered copies signed by the author. This copy additionally has the author's signed presentation inscription to the verso of the title page, "Harry Griffiths [heart and arrow device] Tim White". White has also written out an unpublished 16-line poem on a rear blank, the title a reflection of Blake "Did He Who Made the Lamb Make Thee? (Yes.)", the poem itself liberal in sentiment though viscous in tone, a scarifying meditation on the craven injustice of societies based on a punitive religious code, in which, for "tiger-convict, crooked hangman, / frigging judge and fiery bish[op]", "each of you procures the other. / Tiger bite and bishop bless. / In the jungle, twin to brother, / Howl your hymns of happiness."

This book is from a group inscribed by the author to family members who over the years accompanied him at his summer home in the Adirondacks. John D. MacDonald was an award-winning mystery writer who authored 78 books and close to 500 short stories, including the celebrated Travis McGee series. MacDonald's work has been produced in more than 75 million copies and he was given the Grandmaster Award in 1972 by the Mystery Writers of America, The American Book Award in 1980, the Ben Franklin Award in 1955 and was Guest of Honor at Bouchercon in 1983. Honorary Doctorates and a host of other awards have also been bestowed upon him. MacDonald spent summers writing at the camp he and his wife, Dorothy, built at Piseco Lake in the Adirondacks in the 1940's. Many of his most celebrated titles were authored during these summers in Upstate New York and other family members often joined the MacDonalds there over the course of each summer. The book featured in this lot came from John D. MacDonald's personal library at the Piseco Lake camp. ; Signed by Author; 0 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Tin Drum

      New York:: Pantheon,, 1962. New York: Pantheon, 1962. First American edition. Octavo, original red cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelfwear to the spine. Inscribed by the author to poet Robert Lowell in a German inscription, translated into English, which reads: "To Robert Lowell, in admiration and in the hope to have the pleasure of meeting you soon in Berlin. Gunter Grass Berlin, Nov 3, 1966." Association copies of this caliber are rare, especially on what is considered his masterpiece. From the estate of Elizabeth Hardwick, novelist and wife of Robert Lowell. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box.When Günter Grass published "The Tin Drum" in 1959 it was as if German literature had been granted a new beginning after decades of linguistic and moral destruction. Within the pages of this, his first novel, Grass recreated the lost world from which his creativity sprang, Danzig, his home town, as he remembered it from the years of his infancy before the catastrophe of war. Here he comes to grips with the enormous task of reviewing contemporary history by recalling the disavowed and the forgotten: the victims, losers and lies that people wanted to forget because they had once believed in them. At the same time the novel breaks the bounds of realism by having as its protagonist and narrator an infernal intelligence in the body of a three-year-old, a monster who overpowers the fellow human beings he approaches with the help of a toy drum. The unforgettable Oskar Matzerath is an intellectual whose critical approach is childishness, a one-man carnival, dadaism in action in everyday German provincial life just when this small world becomes involved in the insanity of the great world surrounding it. It is not too audacious to assume that "The Tin Drum" will become one of the enduring literary works of the 20th century" (The Swedish Academy).

        1. Rötelstudie zu Edda Kara." Porträt im Profil, mit vollem Namenszug signiert, hs. betitelt und datiert

      1962. 1962 - Blattgröße 59,5 x 46 cm. Zeichnung auf starkem Karton; eine Ecke außerhalb des Abbildungsbereiches bestoßen und mit Knickfalte; Kanten gering bestoßen. Es handelt es sich bei der Frau um die damals 20jährige Edda Kara (später verheiratet mit dem Chemiker und Musikologen Wolfgang Löffler), eines nachmaligen Mitglieds der Tanzkompagnie von John Cranko (Stuttgart). Tombrock (1895 Dortmund - 1966 Stuttgart) stand in persönlicher Beziehung zu E. Kara und hat verschiedene Vorstudien zu einem Ölbild Karas angefertigt, das allerdings nie zustande kam. Bei der Rötelstudie, betitelt die "1.", handelt es sich wahrscheinlich um die einzige, die angefertigt wurde. Arbeiten von ihm sind u. a. in der National-Galerie Oslo, in der Kunsthalle Hamburg und im Dortmunder Tombrock-Archiv vorhanden. Vollmer (4, 456) gibt irrtümlich eine Abkunft aus Schweden an, das er jedoch erst 1937 als Exilant aufsuchte und wo er 1939 Bert Brecht kennen lernte. Schon in den 20er Jahren arbeitete der sozial engagierte H. T. für Vaganten-Zeitungen und kehrte nach Ende des Nazi-Regimes in die DDR zurück, wo er eine Akademie gründete, bevor er nach einigen Jahren über Dortmund nach Stuttgart ging. DE
