The author, Yoshikuni Seki (1892-1979), was the one who improved paper pulp technology and paper industry development in Japan. "Dr. Arne Asplund (1903-1993) invented the Defibrator pulping refiner and the defibrator-method (also called Asplund-method) for pulping wooden chips in 1930s. His invention resulted in the company AB Defibrator in Stockholm which was merged with Sunds AB to form Sunds Defibrator in 1979. Asplund was rewarded the Gold medal (Guldmedaljen) of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) in 1947 for the invention and his further development of the defibrator-method for pulping wood and other fibre rich materials. He was later rewarded the Great gold medal (Stora guldmedaljen) from IVA in 1969 for his efforts on defibration technology. The annual Arne Asplund Mechanical Pulping Award, was established in 1985 to commemorate Asplund's contributions to the pulp and paper industry." (Wikipedia). "Washi is a style of paper that was first made in Japan. Washi is commonly made using fibers from the bark of the gampi tree, the mitsumata shrub (Edgeworthia chrysantha), or the paper mulberry, but also can be made using bamboo, hemp, rice, and wheat. The word "washi" comes from wa 'Japanese' and shi 'paper', and the term is used to describe paper made by hand in the traditional manner. Washi is one of the UNESCO's Intangible cultural heritage objects." (Wikipedia)

        Ländliche Idylle mit Gutshof und Sonntagsausflüglern im Gespräch.

      . Gouache und Pinsel in Grau mit Deckweißhöhungen, auf braunem festem Papier. 16,2:22,5 cm. Linke untere Ecke angesetzt. Auf dem bildmäßig ausgeführten Aquarell verweisen die Bekleidung der Dargestellten, die der Empire-Mode nahestehenden ländlichen Frauentrachten, sowohl Kniebundhosen als auch die der neuesten Mode entsprechenden Sansculottes der Männer auf eine Datierung in die ersten Jahre des 19. Jahrhunderts. Die blonde Frau mit dem Kind zeigt physiognomische Ähnlichkeiten zu einer Marktfrau auf einem Gemälde aus der Stiftung Oskar Reinhart Winterthur, dazu vgl. Stiftung Oskar Reinhart Winterthur, Band 2, Zürich 1977, S. 354, Nr. 167.. Der Schweizer Landschafts- und Genremaler, aber auch als Karikaturist tätige Töpffer begann seine künstlerische Laufbahn als Graveur in Genf und ging dann nach Lausanne, wo er als Typograph und Kupferstecher arbeitete. Anschließend zog er nach Paris und begann auf Anregung seines Freundes, des Architekten und Landschaftsmalers J.T. Thibaud (1757-1826) mit der Aquarellmalerei. Ca. 1798-1800 fertigte er in Genf mit seinem Jugendfreund, dem Landschafts- und Tiermaler J.-L. Agasse (1767-1849) und dem Porträt- und Genremaler F. Massot (1766-1847) Gemeinschaftsarbeiten, reich staffierte Landschaften, an. Auch malte Töpffer zuweilen die Landschaftshintergründe der Porträts von Massot. Erneute Aufenthalte in Paris 1804 und 1807 Paris brachten ihm die Bekanntschaft mit der Kaiserin Josephine, die er als Schülerin gewinnen konnte. 1816 unternahm er eine Reise nach England, wo er Agasse in London besucht, 1824 nach Italien. 1817 gab er ein "Album de Caricature" heraus. 1820 zog er in ein Landhaus in Morillon. 1797 wurde er Mitglied der Societe pour l'avancement des arts de Geneve, 1803 erhielt er den von Napoleon zur Feier des Konkordats gestifteten Preis, 1812 eine Goldene Medaille im Pariser Salon und 1830 in Bern die Goldene Medaille für Genre- und Landschaftsmalerei. Das Musee d'Art et d'Histoire Genf, Museum Ariana Genf, Museen in Basel, Lyon, Narbonne und Zürich, ferner das Britische Museum London besitzen Arbeiten von Toepffer. Töpffer trug wesentlich zur Entwicklung der Schweizer Genremalerei bei und konzipierte häufig humoristische, zuweilen auch kritische Szenen des täglichen Lebens, das Treiben auf Straßen und Plätzen, Märkten und Messen, zwischen Ruinen und in der freien Natur.Literatur: Boissonnas, Wolfgang-Adam Töpffer, Bern 2006 Lucien Boissonnas: Wolfgang-Adam Töpffer.

        Framed Typed Letter Signed about show business

      1977 - American film director, who had a close friendship with Katharine Hepburn and many other celebrities. 1 page on personal stationery, 10.5 x 7.25 inches, no place, November 9, 1977. In this jovial letter, which includes five handwritten words, Cukor talks about mutual acquaintances in the entertainment industry and discusses his plans for upcoming projects, in part: "This is the life! What a racket - this writing reviews, biographies -- and cleaning up. Boy, it's lucky for you that I didn't find out how easy it is - I'd've gone after Ethel Merman myself. But from here on in, no holds barred! I'm in this for good - so watch out.I'm going to follow Liz Smith's invaluable and intelligent suggestion that I write 'MY FRIEND, GRETA'. No - I'd better not do that because Gaylor Hauser said 'She's my best friend.' I'll think up another title.I'm glad that it was happy times with Miss Merman; also that you talked yourself into getting one percent of the Cole Porter show. It gives me an idea, I'll get into that side of it later on -- writing musical shows." Three horizontal folds and a small stain near the bottom left corner, but overall in very good condition. Float-mounted above a 3.5 x 4.5-inch black-and-white photo of Cukor crouching outdoors on one knee with two dogs. Matted in gray and set in a white frame measuring 19 x 12 inches.

        SCREENPLAY FOR THE MOVIE "GREYSTROKE"

      (No-place:: no-publisher,. August 4, 1977). Early draft of Robert Towne's screenplay for the 1984 movie "Greystroke," which was based on Burroughs' novel, TARZAN OF THE APES. The film was directed by Hugh Hudson with Christopher Lambert starring as "Tarzan" (the name is never used in the film's dialogue) and Andie MacDowell as Jane; the cast also included Sir Ralph Richardson, who received an Academy Award nomination for "Best Supporting Actor." Unfortunately Towne, who was apparently frustrated at being passed over for director, used the pseudonym "P. H. Vazak" (the name of his dog) for the film and so his Oscar nomination for "Best Adapted Screenplay" was under that name. 170 pages, printed on rectos only, clasp bound with black card covers. Plain white label on front with handwritten "GREYSTROKE / Rob't Towne"; title handwritten on "spine" (left-side page edges). Covers a little loose but holding, otherwise very good.

        Ein Mönch in Versuchung. Ein Mönch in seiner Studierstube wendet sich mit abwehrend erhobenem Arm von einer sich ihm nackt darbietenden Frau ab, rechts neben dem Kamin das Böse in Gestalt eines feuerschnaubenden Bären.

      . Feder und Pinsel in Grau, Aquarell, mit einigen Deckweißlichtern, auf Velin, auf graues Bütten aufgezogen. 19,5:18 cm. Gutachten: O.R. von Lutterotti, Innsbruck, vom 20.02.1977 (in Fotokopie). Lutterotti hat das Aquarell in die Jahre 1785/91 datiert und als Vergleich auf die Abb. 91-94 in seiner Monographie über Koch, hingewiesen. Vergleichsliteratur: O.R. von Lutterotti, Joseph Anton Koch, 1768 - 1839. Mit Werkverzeichnis und Briefen des Künstlers. Berlin, 1940, Abb. 91 - 94.. Das Aquarell ist ein Dokument aus den Jahren, als Koch die Hohe Karlsschule in Stuttgart besuchte und zeigt seinen Sinn für Humor. Bevor Koch sich für das Fach der Landschaftsmalerei entschied, entstanden Zeichnungen und Aquarelle mit figürlichen Motiven, darunter auch einige mit karikaturhaften Zügen. Durch frühe, autodidaktische Übung im Zeichnen erlangte Koch auf diesem Gebiet Fertigkeiten, die den Weihbischof von Augsburg veranlaßten, ihn in Augsburg bei dem Bildhauer I. Ingerl (1752-1800) und dem Maler J.J. Mettenleitner (1750-1825) ausbilden zu lassen. Von 1785-1791 besuchte er die Hohe Karlsschule in Stuttgart, wo er Schüler von A.F. Harper (1725-1806) und Ph.F. von Hetsch (1758-1838) war. 1791 floh er aus Stuttgart als Anhänger der französischen Revolution nach Straßburg. 1792 lebte er in Basel, 1793/94 unternahm er Studienreisen in der Schweiz, es entstanden Alpenstudien. 1794 wanderte er zu Fuß nach Italien und machte Station in Florenz, Neapel, Salerno und Paestum. 1795 kam er in Rom an, wo ihm der englische Kunstmäzen G.F. Nott ein Stipendium für drei Jahre aussetzte. 1805-1810 Wanderungen in Italien, es entstanden heroische Landschaften. Von 1812-1815 folgte ein Aufenthalt in Wien, er kehrte 1815 nach Rom zurück, wo er bis zu seinem Tode ansässig blieb. Koch wurde zur Hauptfigur der deutschen Künstlerkolonie in Rom.
