        The Human Province [Signed]; Die Provinz des Menschen Aufzeichnungen [Unterzeichnet] [Crowds and Power]

      New York: The Seabury Press, 1978. First American edition. Hardcover. Very Good +/fine. A Very Good + copy of the first American edition, first printing (upper leading board corners gently bumped, otherwise Fine with a bit of pushing to the spine ends, SIGNED BY ELIAS CANETTI on the title page. Elias Canetti won the 1971 Nobel Prize in Literature "for writings marked by a broad outlook, a wealth of ideas and artistic power". The Human Province presents a collection of reflections which Canetti recorded from 1942 to 1972 during his research and composition of his masterpiece "Crowds and Power" and which he described as a "safety valve, and indispensable daily exercise" employed by him to avoid a loss of spontaneity. As he never intended that these reflections be published, they provided him with a freedom of thought and expression that he otherwise would not have had, and in them he recorded the evolution of his life and thought. Thus they effectively constitute a fifth installment in his noted tetralogy of autographical books. With respect to those of which as had of then been published Dr. Johannes Edfelt of the Swedish Academy in his Speech presenting the Prize to Canetti stated: "Finally, standing out as a peak in Canetti's writings, are his memoirs, so far in two large volumes. In these recollections of his childhood and youth he reveals his forceful epic power of description to its full extent. A great deal of the political and cultural life in central Europe in the early 1900's - especially the form it took in Vienna - is reflected in the memoirs. The peculiar environments, the many remarkable human destinies with which Canetti has been confronted and his unique educational path - always aiming at universal knowledge - are seen here in a style and with a lucidity that have very few qualitative equivalents in the memoirs written in the German language during this century." Signed copies of Canetti's works in English translation are difficult to find. A Very Good + to Near Fine copy of a notable Canetti book extending his important autobiography into a lengthy and critical period of his adulthood, SIGNED BY ELIAS CANETTI. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.

Knickspur, ansonsten in gutem u. sauberen Erhaltungszustand.. Umfassender Werkkatalog der Arbeiten Johann Hausers (einschließlich seines druckgraphischen Oeuvres). Mit Vorworten von Leo Navratil, Otto Breicha und Arnulf Rainer. - In Beilage ein aufklappbares Billet (Querformat: 18,8 x 13,4 cm) auf Vorderdeckel mit einer eh. signierten Original-Radierung (Plattengröße: 8 x 16,5 cm) von Johann Hauser und inwendig mit eigenh., unterzeichneten u. datierten (Dez. 71) Grüßen zu den Weihnachtsfeiertagen von Leo Navratil an den österr. Maler und Graphiker Georg Eisler (1928-1998) und dessen Ehefrau Alice. Ebenso beiliegend eine kleinformatige Original-Bleistiftzeichnung (10,4 x 14,7 cm) von Johann Hauser mit einem Christbaum. Die Baumspitze ist mit einem Stern, einem der immer wiederkehrenden Lieblingssymbole Hausers geschmückt. Seine Sterne haben immer nur 4 Zacken und haben aufgrund dieser Sonderform einen hohen Wiedererkennungswert und sind zum Symbol für das Gugginger Haus der Künstler geworden. Auf der Rückseite von Navratil beschriftet: 20.12.71 ("depressiv"). - Der 1926 in Bratislava geborene Johann Hauser kam bereits als Teenager, Ende der 1940er Jahre aufgrund einer manischen Depression in die niederösterreichische Landes-Nervenklinik Maria Gugging, Klosterneuburg. Das 1981 von dem Primar der Anstalt, Leo Navratil gegründete 'Haus der Künstler', sollte vom Gründungsjahr bis zu Hausners Tode seine Heimat bleiben. H. zählte zu einer kleinen, sich herauskristallisierender Gruppe besonders ausdrucksstarker Patienten und seine künstlerischen Fähigkeiten wurden von N. seit den 1960er Jahren intensiv gefördert. Die künstlerischen Ergebnisse ließen deutlich erkennen, ob sich H. in einer manischen oder depressiven Phase befand.

        Signed portrait photograph.

      n.p.n.d. - 240 : 175 mm. Official German press photograph of the Chinese politician Deng Xiaoping together with German Chancellor Helmut Kohl. Signed by both recto. - He was the leader of China from 1978 until his retirement in 1992. After Mao Zedong's death, Deng led his country through far-reaching market economic reforms. While Deng never held office as the head of state, head of government or General Secretary (de jure leader of the Communist Party of China), he nonetheless was the "paramount leader" of the People's Republic of China from December 1978 to 1992. As the core of the second-generation leaders, Deng shared his power with several powerful older politicians commonly known as the Eight Elders.Born into a peasant background in Guang'an, Sichuan, Deng studied and worked in France in the 1920s, where he was influenced by Marxism-Leninism. He joined the Communist Party of China in 1923. Upon his return to China he worked as a political commissar for the military in rural regions and was considered a "revolutionary veteran" of the Long March. Following the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, Deng worked in Tibet and other southwestern regions to consolidate Communist control.Deng was instrumental in China's economic reconstruction following the Great Leap Forward in the early 1960s. His economic policies, however, were at odds with the political ideologies of Chairman Mao Zedong. As a result, he was purged twice during the Cultural Revolution, but regained prominence in 1978 by outmaneuvering Mao's chosen successor, Hua Guofeng.Inheriting a country fraught with social and institutional woes resulting from the Cultural Revolution and other mass political movements of the Mao era, Deng became the core of the "second generation" of Chinese leadership. He is considered "the architect" of a new brand of socialist thinking, combining the Communist Party's socialist ideology with a pragmatic adoption of market economic practices. Deng opened China to foreign investment, the global market and limited private competition. He is generally credited with developing China into one of the fastest-growing economies in the world for over 35 years and raising the standard of living of hundreds of millions of Chinese.

        La festa del Parco Lambro

      Padova: Mastrogiacomo Editore Images 70, 1978. Prima edizione (First edition). broch. Ottimo (Fine). 8vo (cm 22x22). Libro fotografico di Franco Ortolani (oltre 70 fotografie in bianco e nero stampate su pagine di diverso colore). Introduzione di Marisa Rusconi Franco Ortolani documentò in un reportage fotografico stampato su carta bianca, beige e verde il grande evento che fu la VI Festa del Proletariato Giovanile, nel giugno 1976 a Milano a Parco Lambro. Fu organizzata dalla rivista Re Nudo, la più diffusa pubblicazione di controcultura italiana, sostenuta da varie organizzazioni politiche come il Partito Radicale e Lotta Continua. L'evento aveva come obiettivo quello di essere un punto di incontro per migliaia di giovani, riuniti dalla passione per la musica e dalla voglia di dar vita ad una società diversa da quella consumistica. Non fu soltanto l'"apocalisse del pop" o l’"apoteosi della provocazione", come molti scrissero, e come Marisa Rusconi criticò nell'unico testo che fa da supporto alle fotografie. Infatti "proprio lì, dallo sfacelo del mito di un certo modo di stare insieme - pace, amore e misticismo collettivo, musica come droga e droga come musica ecc. - nacque la necessità di trovare altre strade, altri modi. Ma allora né i protagonisti né gli osservatori potevano essere in grado di cogliere questa realtà in fieri. Ne registrarono solo il punto di arrivo". I quattro giorni di yoga, musica e droghe erano stati confinati entro il recinto del parco, senza acqua, elettricità e servizi igienici, negati dal Comune. Ma nonostante ciò, scorrendo velocemente le pagine del volume, il vortice delirante di corpi nudi in girotondo, i fornelli improvvisati, gli striscioni "né servi né padroni", i falò, le danze frenetiche e annebbiate, i bonghi, i capelli spettinati e i barboni sulle facce sfatte emanavano ancora il fascino per cui tutto sembrava possibile.
