(= Handwörterbuch zur deutschen Volkskunde, Abteilung I, Aberglaube). 1927 bis 1942 erstmals erschienen, versammelt es zum ersten Mal alle Aspekte des Volks- und Aberglaubens. Die entlegensten Quellen wurden von einem schweizerisch-deutschen Autorenteam über Jahrzehnte gesammelt und zusammengestellt. In der Folge entstand ein dichtes, faktengesättiges Lexikon (Naturwissenschaft und Mythologie, Naturheilkunde und Medizin, Astrologie und Meteorologie, Symbolwissenschaft, Pflanzenheilkunde, Magie), das zu allen Aspekten überraschende Querverweise und Anmerkungen bereit hält. Viele der Inhalte des Handwörterbuches haben erst in den letzten Jahren ihre volle Aufmerksamkeit bei einem breiten Publikum gefunden, beispielsweise im Rahmen der feministischen Frauenforschung und dem großen Interesse an der Geschichte der Hexenverfolgung. «Eines der lexikalischen Großwerke des 20. Jahrhunderts, das in keiner wissenschaftlichen Bibliothek fehlen darf.»

        Archive of Personal Papers and Photos

      A small but interesting collection of items related to actress Vivien Merchant, the first wife of Nobel Prize-winner Harold Pinter, including an ALS from Merchant, a photograph of her from a play, and two photographs of Pinter (one an early image with their son Daniel). Overall near fine or better with some scattered wear at the corners and a splash mark to one letter. An unusual group of items which includes a hotel bill from The Albany Hotel in 1970, a Westside Health Club member card (which expired May 22, 1974), a 1971 bank statement from Midland Bank Limited, and a thank you card from Rowohlt Theater Verlag. There are also two pieces of correspondence from friends: including an ALS by British theater actress Viola Keats, who costarred in the 1974 Pinter-directed version of Next of Kin by John Hopkins; and an ALS by Merchant to Keats asking her to dinner. Of particular note are the three photographs: the first is a continuity Polaroid of Merchant in costume for an unidentified play; the second is a poignant photo of Pinter with Daniel from the early 1960s, as Pinter was gaining in popularity and long before the two became estranged; and lastly, a mounted black and white version of a photo of Pinter that appeared in color on the cover of the Saturday Review for April 8, 1967, with the stamp of celebrity photographer Anthony di Gesu on the verso, likely given to Merchant as a keepsake. An unusual and fascinating group of items.

        THE EYE IN THE TRIANGLE. An Interpretation of Aleister Crowley. Inscribed

      Saint Paul, Minnesota:: Llewellyn Publications, 1970 Presentation Copy. 8vo., A near fine copy in the publisher's black cloth, gilt - in a lightly used dustwrapper. Regardie has warmly inscribed this book to Ursula Greville: "For Ursula / who did some editing on this magnum opus / Love, Francis." {Regardie dedicated AHA! to Ursula Greville a 'loving, generous, devoted friend of many years who, like Aleister Crowley changed the entire course of my life.'} This is a stated First Edition / First Printing. There is some light wear to the board's extremities & to the crown and foot of the book's spine. There are three small page notations on the final free endpaper. The dustwrapper is not price clipped; with the original publisher's price of $10.00 still intact on the front flap. There is a 1" x 2" chip missing from the top right corner of the front panel and a 2" closed tear in the same area. There are several small chips missing from the crown of the DJ's spine. "Aleister Crowley has for years been reviled by the public media as 'The Most Evil Man in the World.' And he has for years been hailed by a small handful of scholars as the greatest of modern mystics, the 'Prophet of a New Aeon.' Now, The Eye in the Triangle appears to clear up some aspects of the dual mystery. In this book Israel Regardie examines the life and work of Aleister Crowley from a sympathetically objective point of view. Many of Crowley's loveliest and holiest works are quoted from sources long out of print. The Eye in the Triangle is essential to an understanding not only of Crowley but of all modern magic and occultism." -- from the book's dustwrapper. Signed by Author. 1st Edition.

        IF WE TAKE [Inscribed Association]

      [Los Angeles]: Black Sparrow Press, 1970. First Edition. 12mo. String-tied stiff printed wraps. Near fine with touches of rubbing, soil. One of 350 copies. INSCRIBED by Bukowski to Harold Norse: "12 -27 - 69 / For Hal Norse - / We've both been / through the fire, / dear friend, and / there's more to come - / more fire more o / so much more fire, / and we can only / wonder if we will / kill ourselves first, / or they. No matter - / they will never know. / yrs, / Charles Bukowski." Bukowski has also added to inside of front cover an illustration of a man smoking, signed "Buk. An extraordinary and warm inscription in the first of many Black Sparrow greetings Bukowski would do for the press. Norse, perennial literary scenester and author of the classic cut-up novel Beat Hotel, was a frequent Bukowski correspondent beginning in the mid 1960's, and it was Norse who recommended Bukowski to Penguin Press for their Modern Poets series (he and Norse appeared together in the thirteenth installment) -- then Bukowski's highest-profile appearance to date. But the two didn't meet in person until January of 1969, a little less than a year before this inscription. Norse recalls the experience in his book MEMOIRS OF A BASTARD ANGEL: "I knew that a wild Falstaffian ruffian had come to shake things up with more fiction than fact, more fantasy than truth [...] Bukowski was misshapen [...] He looked [...] down and out" (p. 420). And indeed, the poet was down and out: frustrated at his job for the Post Office and desperate to find a way to support himself from his writing alone. He would soon find that opportunity later the same year when Black Sparrow publisher John Martin famously offered Bukowski a guaranteed $100 a month for life if he wrote for the press full time. According to Martin, their agreement went into effect January 2nd, 1970 - just six days after this inscription and only a few weeks before Bukowski completed his first novel, Post Office. Norse and Bukowski remained life-long -- if contentious -- friends and correspondents (a collection of their letter has been slated, but delayed, for publication since 2002). Quite simply, one of the closest and warmest Bukowski associations we've seen, capturing the poet at a pivotal moment in his career. [Krumhansl 31]. [Morrow and Cooney 74].

        Troubles

      A first edition, first printing published by Cape in 1970. A very good+ book with one crease to the spine and one neat gift inscription to the title page dated 1970. Pink/red topstain still present and vibrant. In a very good unclipped wrapper which has some staining to the reverse and therefore not visible to the outer side of the wrapper. Some thin stains to the very top of the end-flaps. Some rubbing to corners and one small nick repaired to the top of the rear panel of the wrapper. One of the scarcest titles in the Booker Prize canon. On May 19, 2010, as the winner of the 'Lost Man Booker Prize' ? a one-off prize to honour the books published in 1970, but not considered for the prize when its rules were changed. Farrell also won the 1973 prize for The Siege of Krishnapur. He died in 1979. Had Troubles actually won in 1970, Farrell would have become the first author to win the Booker twice. The book in first edition is of legendary scarcity. A very presentable copy of a rare book and priced to sell.
