        Abbie Hoffman, Jokesmith

      n.p. : n.p., 1977. An archive of manuscript and correspondence, various dates, circa 1977. Contents include: 1). The manuscript Cosmic Car Rental, a brief article on the Los Angeles car rental company Rent-A-Wreck, no date, approximately 350 words on one sheet (both sides) of yellow legal pad paper, entirely in Hoffmans hand and signed by him at the close; 2) a letter addressed to a magazine editor on one sheet (both sides) of yellow legal pad paper, approximately 200 words, concerning possible, future assignments, signed by Hoffman as Howie; 3) a photocopied example of an article submitted to the magazine in Hoffmans capacity as their TV critic, with copyediting mark-ups and corrections in blue ink, not in Hoffmans hand; 4) another photocopied article, apparently a response to an article by Timothy Leary which had previously appeared in the same magazine, Hoffmans title of Brainwashing For Fun and Profit crossed out and with copyediting and corrections as part of the copy; 5) a 6 page copy of an article concerning Hoffmans relationship with a mythical sea creature, original typescript; 6) 21 pages of manuscript from The Farmer Shows The Fugitive; or; Square Dancing In The Ice Age, Hoffmans 1982 book, original typescript, with a 2 page photocopy insert in the middle of the manuscript, the entire manuscript with corrections in both Hoffmans and an unknown editorial hand; 7) two airmail envelopes addressed in Hoffmans hand, one postmarked Santa Monica, CA March 3, 1977, the other Miami, FL 11 March, 1977; 8) a letter from Hoffmans literary agent concerning his article on Jimmy Carters presidential inauguration, dated February 16, 1977; and, 9) and 10) finally, and perhaps the most interesting, two short notes from Hoffman containing the gag lines for three proposed cartoons, one of which Hoffman offers but makes a point of saying I do not want my name associated with [it], a sentiment which is entirely understandable once the gag line is known. During the period this material dates from, Hoffman was on the run and living underground, having jumped bail in 1974 and remaining a fugitive until 1980, when he turned himself in to the authorities. A substantial amount of material, with interesting content. While letters and similar material from Hoffman appear on the market with some regularity, manuscript material is much less common.

        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 Sociéte pour l avancement des arts de Genève, 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 Musée 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.

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.
