        Slaughterhouse-Five, or The Children's Crusade

      New York: Seymour Lawrence/ Delacorte Press, 1969. FIRST EDITION of one of the most influential works of twentieth-century American literature. Vonnegut "deserves full canonical marks for this kaleidoscopic koan of a novel about Billy Pilgrim, a man who has 'become unstuck in time.' Pilgrim ricochets helplessly from decade to decade, living the episodes of his life in no particular sequence, not excluding his own death, his capture by aliens called Tralfamadorians, and his traumatic service in World War II, when he lives through the firebombing of Dresden. Slaughterhouse-Five is a cynical novel, but beneath the bitter, grim-jawed humor is a desperate, painfully honest attempt to confront the monstrous crimes of the 20th century" (Lev Grossman, Time Magazine's 100 Best Novels, 1923-Present)."Slaughterhouse-Five arrived in the bookstores in 1969. Amid the disenchantment surrounding the Vietnam War, this tale of the innocent but decidedly unheroic World War II GI, Billy Pilgrim, hit a nerve and soared to the top of the sales lists. Approaching fifty years of age, Vonnegut became a household name, a rumpled, cigarette-wielding prophet to the younger generation" (American National Biography).New York: Seymour Lawrence/ Delacorte Press, 1969. Octavo, original blue cloth, original dust jacket. Book near-fine with a hint of toning at edges; dust jacket bright and clean with (what appears to be) some white-out on verso, not visible from the outside. Very Good / Very Good.

Some items with illustrations. Various sizes, mostly 8vo., 4to., and small folio. Loose as issued. Various cities, 1920s-1980s. The Ku Klux Klan has had three major iterations since its founding, the first flourishing in the Southern United States from the 1860s to the 1870s; the second flourishing in the 1910s and 1920s, primarily in the urban Midwest and in opposition to Catholic and Jewish communities; and the third emerging after 1950 in opposition to the Civil Rights Movement, with current membership estimated at between 3,000 and 6,000, compared to an estimated 6 million in the 1920s. By the 1920s, a women's auxiliary had developed in the KKK, with chapters in many areas of the United States. The female Klan members participated in parades, cross lightings, lectures, rallies, and boycotts of business, and were active in promoting prohibition, distributing Bibles in public schools, and petitioning for the dismissal of Roman Catholic teachers.

      3500 S., Abb. Kart. *verlagsneu*. Der in Gera geborene Künstler Otto Dix (gestorben 1969 in Singen) hat neben seinem bedeutenden malerischen Werk auch ein umfangreiches graphisches Erbe hinterlassen.

Similar to MacLise's renaming of the days in the earlier 'Year' , 'The Universal Solar Calendar' renames the days of the year, but in this format prints the phrases in his characteristic calligraphic hand, producing a full artwork that actually seems to take itself a bit more seriously than most of the multiples produced by Macianus at the time. Fluxus Codex page 398. OCLC locates only one example, included in the Angus MacLise papers held by Columbia University.

        Ode to LA while thinking of Brian Jones, deceased.

      Los Angeles; Western Lithograph Co. [?] for J.D.Morrison. [July] 1969. FIRST EDITION (and the only separate edition). 500 copies only, privately distributed to concert-goers. Bifolium, 4-page pamphlet, (unpaginated). Pale yellow textured paper, printed in dark green, unbound as issued. Approx. dimensions 9.5 x 6 inches. With Linweave Textra watermark, 'Made in USA'. A near fine copy, with soft vertical fold and annotations to rear from original owner listing the The Doors' opening songs that evening 'Back Door Man / Break on Through / Soul Kitchen.' The third of four self-published poetry titles by Jim Morrison [1943-1971], after 'The Lords: Notes on Vision' (April 1969), 'The New Creatures' (April 1969), and followed by 'An American Prayer' (1970), and is his only work that was devoted to a single poem. The edition comprised 'vermutlich 500' copies (Gerstenmeyer), which were handed out at the two performances The Doors gave at the Aquarius Theatre, Hollywood (both 21st July 1969). By one account the theatre floor was littered with these leaflets after the show (Humphreys), so most would have been swept up and thrown out with the garbage; in fact the present copy only escaped as it's recipient tossed it in her handbag instead of the floor. Extremely scarce thus. 'Brian Jones' is a chilling meditation on the recent death of Lewis Brian Hopkin-Jones (Brian Jones) [1942-1969], founder and deposed leader of the Rolling Stones' and the 'first martyr of rock and roll', who, two weeks earlier, had been found dead in his swimming pool at Cotchford Farm, Sussex, former home of A.A.Milne. The circumstances of his death remain one of rock's greatest mysteries. Two years later, aged 27 (the same age as Jones lived to), Morrison himself would become an infamous rock'n'roll fatality. Heinz Gerstenmeyer; The Doors [No.4], Kerry Humphreys; The Doors Collector Magazine 'most fans trashed their gift without even reading it... many who attended confirm that these sheets littered the floor and filled almost every trash bin'. PROVENANCE; Originally the property of Michelle Straubing, attendee and journalist for 'Creem' music magazine.

      Les éditions de minuit. First edition, one of 100 hors commerce numbered copies on BFK de Rives paper, the only large paper copies with 642 other copies on BFK de Rives paper.Precious copy inscribed and dated January 1970 by Beckett to his friend the painter Geer (Van Velde) and his wife Lise.Nice copy."What to say of the sliding planes, the shimmering contours, the cut-out figures in the fog, the balance that any little thing can break, breaking and re-forming themselves under our very eyes? How to talk about the colors that breathe and pant? Of the swarming stasis? Of this world without weight, without force, without shadow? Here everything moves, swims, fells, comes back, falls apart, re-forms. Everything stops, non-stop. One would say it's the revolt of the internal molecules of a stone a split second before its disintegration. That is literature" (The van Veldes' Art, or the World and the Trousers, in Cahiers d'Art n°11-12, Paris 1945).Beckett here is not talking - despite how it may appear - about his literary oeuvre, but about the paintings of Geer Van Velde, going on to add a few lines later "[Bram] Van Velde paints distance. G[eer] Van Velde paints succession." This elegy, published on the occasion of the double exhibition of the Van Veldes (Geer at Maeght's and Bram at the Galerie Mai) is the first important text on these painters, more or less unknown to the public at the time: "We've only just started spouting nonsense about the Van Velde brothers, and I'm the first. It's an honor." This is also the first critical text written directly in French by a young Irish writer who had not, as yet, published anything in France.Thus, the first and most important of Beckett's writings on art, composed at the dawn of his literary career, establishes - right from the start - a fundamental relationship between his developing work and his friends' art: "Thus this text has often been read in a hollow or in the mirror, as one of the rare designations of Beckett's poetry (to come) by the man himself, a sort of anamorphic program of writing," (Un pantalon cousu de fil blanc : Beckett et l'épreuve critique by Pierre Vilar).A real statement of dramaturgical intent, this fundamental text whose introspective value Beckett lays out from the introduction on ("one does nothing but tell stories with words") ushers in the writer's most fruitful creative period. In essence, like Apollinaire and Cendrars, Beckett draws from the artistic problems of his contemporaries the catalyst of his own future writing through "the deepest questioning of narrative, figurative or poetical presuppositions" (Pascale Casanova in Beckett l'abstracteur).The major influence of modern painting on the narrative structure - or destructuring - of Beckett's drama and novels would be pointed out and examined by a number of thinkers, among them Gilles Deleuze, Julia Kristeva and Maurice Blanchot. It was, in fact, with the art of the Van Veldes (first Geer then Bram) that Beckett began to formalize this desire to translate the pictorial question into dramaturgical terms. Thus it was that he rejected Nicolas de Staël's set design for Godot, since: "the set must come out of the text without adding anything to it. As for the visual comfort of the audience, you can imagine how much I care. Do you really think you can listen with the backdrop of Bram's set, or see anything other than him?" (Letter to Georges Duthuit, 1952).When he met Geer in 1937, "Beckett was going through a major existential crisis and had just been reworking his first novel, Murphy, which had been rejected by a great many publishers. He was lost in alcohol, leaving Ireland and moving once and for all to Paris" (Le Pictural dans l'œuvre de Beckett, Lassaad Jamoussi). He returned from a long artistic journey in Germany, where he was marked by classical works as well as contemporary art - it was during this journey that he discovered Caspar David Friedrich's Two Men Contemplating the Moon, his source for Waiting for Godot.Art was thus at the heart of his creative thinking and the friendship that would tie him to Geer and later his brother Bram and their sister Jacoba (with whom his relationship may have been more than merely friendly), and which would profoundly influence his life and writing. His first writing on art is a short piece on Geer Van Velde, whose works he pressed on his new lover Peggy Guggenheim when she set up her new London gallery. Despite the relative failure of the exhibition (which followed Kandinsky's), he got his friend a one-year scholarship from Peggy. James Knowlson even thinks that "if Beckett maintained close links with Peggy for a long time, it was first and foremost because she could be convinced to give his artist friends a serious helping hand, starting with Geer Van Velde" (in Beckett, p. 474). Enigmatic, the little piece that Beckett wrote at the time at Peggy's request already contained a dramaturgical kernel of thought: " Believes painting should mind its own business, i.e. colors. i.e no more say Picasso than Fabritius, Vermeer. Or inversely."   Slower to develop, his friendship with Bram and interest in the latter's painting slowly changed Beckett's outlook on Geer's art and when, ten years after his first meeting the brothers, he wrote The World and the Trousers,  Beckett brought up to date a duality symbolized by the title, taken from an anecdote given as a legend to the article. The world is the "imperfect" work of God, made in six days, to which the tailor compares the perfection of his trousers, made over six months.The link between this anecdote and the Van Velde brothers is perhaps to be found in the second essay Beckett devoted to them, in 1948, Peintres de l'empêchement [Painters of the Problem] (Derrière le miroir n° 11/12) : "One of them said: I cannot see the object in order to represent it because I am who I am. There are always two sorts of problems - the object-problem and the 'eye-problem... Geer Van Velde is an artist of the former sort... Bram Van Velde of the latter."Resistance of the object or impotence of the artist, this tale, the "true primary narrative core in kôan zen form," (P. Vilar) would later find itself scattered throughout Beckett's work and would more specifically take centre stage in Endgame, whose similarity, by the by, with the art of Geer Van Velde was noted by Roger Blin. "At the time, he was friends with the Dutch brothers Geer and Bram Van Velde, both painters. Geer was a painter in the style of Mondrian. I have the feeling that Beckett saw Endgame as a painting by Mondrian with very tidy partitions, geometric separations and musical geometry," (R. Blin, Conversations avec Lynda Peskine in Revue d'Esthétique).    Beckett's growing affinity for Bram Van Velde's work and the energy he put into promoting his work, especially to the galerie Maeght or his friend the art historian Georges Duthuit, was no doubt to the detriment of his relationship with Geer. Nonetheless, despite some misunderstandings, their friendship remained unbroken; as did the silent but anxious dialogue that the writer maintained with the art of the younger Van Velde brother, two of whose large canvases he owned. "The big painting by Geer finally gave me a sign. Shame that it should have turned out so badly. But perhaps that's not true after all" (letter to Georges Duthuit, March 1950). "Geer shows great courage. Ideas that are a little cutting, but maybe only in appearance. I have always had a great respect for them. But not enough, I think" (letter to Mania Péron, August 1951)The death of Geer Van Velde in 1977 affected Beckett deeply and coincided with a period of intense nostalgia during which the writer decided to give himself over to "a great clear-out" of his house so as to live between "walls as grey as their owner." Confiding his state of mind to his friend, the stage designer Jocelyn Herbert, Beckett bore witness to the indefatigable affection he had nurtured for the painter over forty years: "more canvases on display, including the big Geer Van Velde behind the piano."A precious witness to the friendship of these fellow travelers who had, ever since checking the veracity of the game of chess played by Murphy and Mr. Endon for Beckett's first novel, tackled together the great challenges of modernity: "It's that, deep down, they don't care about painting. What they're interested in is the human condition. We'll come back to that" (Beckett on the Van Velder brothers in The World and the Trousers).Spine lightly sunned as usual for Molloy and L'Innomable, a tiny tear (not serious) to foot of spine of the latter.  Les éditions de minuit Paris 1969 14,5x19,5cm broché

Its headquarters are in Weinheim, Baden-Württemberg, and it has production facilities and markets in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and the United States. The parent company was founded in 1849 as a producer of leather goods.nThe company was founded in 1849 by Carl Johann Freudenberg, the son of a wine merchant,[2] and his partner, Heinrich Christoph Heintze; the two took over a tannery at Weinheim. For the next 80 years, the company produced leather products exclusively. Hurt by the worldwide economic depression that began in 1929, and by shortages during World War II, it diversified into seals for motors made first of leather and later of artificial rubber (the Simmerring, named for an engineer called Walther Simmer), which led to fabrics and to cleaning fabrics and tools when it was noted that the company's cleaning ladies were using discarded scraps of the experimental fabrics. Vileda (from German: wie Leder, "like leather") window-cleaning cloths were first marketed in 1948.nnIn the mid-1990s the company reorganized with a "highly decentralized organizational structure": it has 16 divisions or areas of business incorporating 430 independent units. Three-quarters of its business is as a supplier to other companies. In 2004 Freudenberg had employees in 43 countries. Recently it has focused attention on markets in China and Japan; for example, it provided the floor coverings for the Shanghai Metro stations.nnIn 2002 the company closed its last leather tannery, marking the effective end of the leather industry in Germany. However, today Vileda is a market leader in Europe. All German cars contain parts made by another Freudenberg subsidiary, and German-made outdoor clothing contains fibers made by yet another.[4] Almost all major airports have flooring made by another Freudenberg subsidiary. In 2015 the group was a 7,5 billion euro business with more than 40,000 employees, approximately 11,000 in Germany. Revenues rose from 7 billion euros in 2014 to 7.572 billion in 2015. (Wikipedia)nn_______________nnCarl Johann Freudenberg und sein Partner Heinrich C. Heintze übernahmen 1849 eine Gerberei im Müllheimer Tal vor Weinheim. Das Unternehmen wuchs aufgrund des Exports seiner innovativen Produkte wie Lack- und Satinleder in alle Welt. Der Sohn des Unternehmensgründers, Hermann Ernst Freudenberg entwickelte zwischen 1900 und 1904 als erster in Europa ein Verfahren zur Gerbung mit Chrombrühe statt mit pflanzlichen Stoffen. So verkürzte sich die Produktionszeit um Monate, und Freudenberg wurde eine der größten Gerbereien in Europa.nnDas Unternehmen wurde durch den Ersten Weltkrieg, die Inflation und die Weltwirtschaftskrise 1929 hart getroffen, denn bis zu diesem Zeitpunkt wurde etwa 60 bis 70 Prozent des fertigen Leders exportiert, was nun nicht mehr möglich war. Aus diesem Grund entwickelten die Enkel des Firmengründers, Hans Freudenberg als Ingenieur, Richard Freudenberg als Verantwortlicher für Personal und Finanzen, Otto Freudenberg als Zuständiger für den Verkauf und Walter Freudenberg für den Einkauf, eine neue Strategie. Zunächst begann man, Lederreste zu verwerten und Ersatzstoffe zu entwickeln. Daraus gingen ab 1929 Dichtungen aus Leder und von 1936 an Radialwellendichtringe mit einer Dichtlippe aus Kunstkautschuk Perbunan hervor, die unter dem Namen Simmerringe ein Begriff wurden.nnDie Chemiker und Ingenieure bei Freudenberg entwickelten aus dem Kunstkautschuk Buna S und Buna N Dichtungen und Fußbodenbeläge. Aber auch Vliesstoffe, die als Trägermaterial für das später gefertigte Kunstleder entwickelt wurden, erlangten bald eine eigenständige Nutzung als Ersatz und Erweiterung gewebter Stoffe. Durch die vielseitige Einsetzbarkeit der Vliesstoffe wurden sie bald sehr bekannt.nnEs gibt seit 1948 Einlagestoffe aus Vliesstoffen unter dem Namen Vlieseline und Haushaltsprodukte der Marke Vileda. Seit 1957 gibt es ein immer weiterentwickeltes Programm von Filtern für Industrie und Konsum mit der Marke Viledon. Dichtungen und Formteile werden schon seit 1934 für die Kunden maßgerecht konstruiert.nnNach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg konnte man während des Wiederaufbaus von neuem im Ausland investieren. Bereits vor dem Krieg gab es schon Produktionsstandorte in Österreich, der Schweiz, Frankreich und Großbritannien. Ab 1951 wurden Vliesstoffe in den USA zusammen mit einem amerikanischen Partner produziert. Von 1955 an gab es eine Fabrik für Formteile, und ab 1968 beteiligte man sich an einem Dichtungshersteller.nnZudem wurde parallel weiter in Europa investiert. Es wurden Beteiligungen und eigene Werke in Großbritannien, Frankreich, Spanien, den Niederlanden, Italien und anderen europäischen Ländern aufgebaut. 1960 kamen dann Investitionen in Japan hinzu. Von 1970 bis 1989 baute Freudenberg ein weltweites Netz von Produktions- und Vertriebsstandorten auf, zu dem Nord-, Mittel- und Südamerika, Australien, Südafrika und Ostasien gehören.nnWährenddessen wurde auch die Produktpalette erweitert. Von 1962 bis 1965 wurde die Technik zur Herstellung von Spinnvliesstoffen entwickelt, die heute in der Medizin, der Landwirtschaft und der verarbeitenden Industrie verwendet werden. Der Schmierstoffhersteller Klüber Lubrication wurde 1966 erworben, und man wagte ab 1982 mit den japanischen Partnern zusammen den Einstieg in die Produktion von flexiblen Leiterplatten.nnDer erste Sprecher der Unternehmensleitung, der nicht der Familie Freudenberg angehörte, wurde 1997 Peter Bettermann (bis 2012). 2003 kaufte Freudenberg den Gleitringdichtungs-Hersteller Burgmann Industries aus Wolfratshausen auf. Mit der ebenfalls zu Freudenberg gehörenden Firma Eagle aus Japan bildet Burgmann die Allianz EagleBurgmann Industries.nn2007 verkaufte Freudenberg den Bereich Bausysteme und Schuhkomponenten an ein Konsortium. Das Unternehmen firmiert seitdem unter nora systems GmbH. 2008 verkaufte Freudenberg die Freudenberg Produktionsservice KG und die Freudenberg Gebäudeservice KG an die Johnson Controls Global WorkPlace Solutions. Dieses Unternehmen firmiert seit dem 1. April 2009 unter Johnson Controls Industrial Services. Im Jahr 2010 hat Freudenberg Chemical Specialities das Oberflächentechnik-Unternehmen SurTec International GmbH mit Hauptsitz in Zwingenberg übernommen. SurTec bietet Produkte und Lösungen für Oberflächenbehandlung und Galvanotechnik, beispielsweise für das Reinigen, Entlacken, Färben, Beschichten und Galvanisieren von Oberflächen aus Metall und Kunststoff.nnDes Weiteren wurde im Jahr 2010 das Joint-Venture-Unternehmen Freudenberg Schwab GmbH, welches 1999 in Kooperation mit der Schweizer Schwab AG gegründet wurde und zu 50 % der Freudenberg Gruppe angehörte, vollständig aufgekauft und zum Teilkonzern vergrößert. Freudenberg Schwab stellt schwingungstechnische Lösungen für Schienenfahrzeuge, Industrie sowie Land- und Baumaschinen her. 2012 wurde das Joint-Venture Unternehmen TrelleborgVibracoustic GmbH gegründet, welches zu 50 % zur Freudenberg Gruppe gehört.nnIm Januar 2013 nahm das Unternehmen im Ranking der 500 größten deutschen Familienunternehmen der Zeitschrift Wirtschaftsblatt Platz 23 ein. Der Global Family Business Index der Universität St. Gallen führt das Unternehmen auf Platz 201 der größten Familienunternehmen weltweit. (Wikipedia)nnn

        Biological Journal of the Linnean Society.

      8vo. 103volumes in more than 400 parts, plus indices for all volumes except 1-3, 17, 72, 73; original publisher's paper wrappers; Volume 10, Number 4 signed by the editor R.J. Berry; very slight browning to some of the earlier volumes, otherwise fine. A complete run of this august and important publication from the library of its former editor R.J. Berry. Berry, Emeritus Professor of Genetics at University College London, has had a long and distinguished career as an academic. He has written some of the most sought after volumes in the New Naturalist series, including The Natural History of Orkney and The Natural History of Shetland, as well as numerous academic papers and books. As a practising Christian he is also interested in the ramifications of Darwinism upon religious belief, and has written a number of works in support of the idea of evolutionary creationism, including God's Book of Works: The Nature and Theology of Nature, the text of his 1997-8 Glasgow Gifford Lectures. The Journal is the oldest biological journal in the world, having evolved out of the Linnean Society's Transactions in 1791. It was the only dedicated biological journal for many years and was the first organ to publish Darwin and Wallace's theories of natural selection in 1858. It was relaunched in a new format in 1969 and it is a complete run of the modern form of the Journal that is presented here. R.J. Berry's profound interest in genetics and evolution led him to fix decisively the direction of the Biological Journal. Berry made clear the distinctions between the Biological Journal and the Linnean Society's parallel Botanical and Zoological journals in a flier issued upon his becoming editor: "the Zoological and Botanical Journals have a proper and continuing morphological and taxonomic basis; it is our understanding and intention that the Biological journal should have a special emphasis on organic evolution in the broadest sense - from observation and theory to experiment and inference, including history and conservation. This will be firm editorial policy in the future". He assumed the editorship in September 1978 (Volume 10, Number 3) and carried on until April 1990 (Volume 39, Number 4), during which time the journal adopted the subtitle and focus that it has maintained to this day as 'A Journal of Evolution' (starting with Volume 33, Number 1). He has continued as an associate editor since stepping down. The breadth and depth of the learning displayed in these volumes is too great to be discussed in detail here; each issue contains valuable articles, arguments and controversies. It is worth highlighting a couple of issues, though, which bring the focus of the Journal on to Charles Darwin, the father of the evolutionary movement. Volume 17, Number 1 (February 1982) is devoted to commemorating the centenary of Darwin's death and shows the stamp of Berry's Christian perspective by including an article by the Bishop of Salisbury on the impact of evolutionary science on our understanding of Man's place in nature. Other pieces include a biographical article by R.B. Freeman, Darwin's bibliographer, J.R. Moore on the controversy surrounding Darwin's interment in Westminster Abbey and a prefatory paper by Berry himself. Volume 21, Numbers 1 & 2 (January/February 1984, published in one part) are devoted to the Galapagos Islands. Frank J. Sulloway contributes a piece on Darwin and the Galapagos, while the other articles show how modern naturalists have built on Darwin's work in the region. This is just a small glimpse into the range of expertise and approach displayed in this set of volumes. It represents the most intellectually rigorous and exhaustive body of work in evolutionary science over the last forty years and stands as a tribute to the vision of the editor from whose collection it has come.
