      Routledge & Kegan Paul, LONDON 1981 - An offering of Routledge and Kegan Paul's INTERNATIONAL LIBRARY OF ANTHROPOLOGY (Series Editor Adam Kuper, University of Leiden). Professor Barth is a Norwegian anthropologist educated at the Universities of Chicago and Cambridge who is perhaps best known for his methodological dictum that "everything influencing the shape of an event must be there asserting itself at the moment of the event." The first volume (243 pp. including index) in this two-volume series contains a selection from the period 1955-1972, with two additional essays written especially for this collection. The essays therein "reflect Professor Barth's particular concern with the need to acknowledge the position of the individual and with the discongruity between varying interests and varying levels of collectivity.Among topics covered.are: models of social organization; the study of social change; descent and marriage; nomad-sedentary relations in the Middle East; and ethnic groups and boundaries."The second volume (190 pp.,including index) of Professor Barth's collected essays brings together his studies and writings on the Swat Pathan society in North Pakistan which include very early ecological analysis, application of the theory of games to the Swat Pathan political system, ".an analysis of social stratification and caste, and the various processes at work in ethnic differentiation and identity in a situation of social inequality." With exception of 3 lightly- and one moderately-bumped bottom corner(s) and some light shelfwear to dustjackets, the two volumes are near new condition.

        Autograph musical manuscript full score of the Sonate und Sonatine für Streichquartett, dated October 1981 at conclusion,. 1. Sonate "Brinje." 2. Sonatine "Das reine Gedicht." Complete

      [1] (title), 2-59 pp. Folio (304 x 220 mm.). Full dark orange leather with titling and decorative devices stamped in gilt to upper and "Sammlung Dr. Heinz-Georg v. Kamler, Wien" stamped in gilt to lower board. Notated in pencil on 12-stave music manuscript paper. With an autograph presentation from the composer to Dr. Heinz-Georg and Michaela von Kamler to title, signed and dated Vienna, November 9, 1981. Together with: Two autograph letters from the composer to the von Kamlers providing a description of the work, a performance of it, and news of the players (suggesting that the von Kamlers may have actually have commissioned the work) and copies of the published score and parts issued by Doblinger in 1990. . Kont studied composition with Lechthaler, Polnauer, Swarowsky and Krips in Vienna and later with Milhaud, Messiaen and Honegger in Paris. The present work was inspired by the folk music Kont heard while serving as a soldier in Croatia in World War II. "Progressive pioneer who... startled musically insecure post-war Austria, or a traditionalist who is sometimes labelled a "Conservative"? - More contradictory verdicts have been applied to hardly any other composer in recent Austria's music scene than to Paul Kont. The notion of the "avant-gardist" ha[d] become manifest already in the first years after the war, when Kont - unlike many of his contemporaries - did not so much follow tendencies originating in Hindemith (and, to a lesser degree, in Webern and Schoenberg), but developed a polytonal style deriving from piano improvisation - resulting in the so-called phase of "captured improvisation". The course of his later studies in the years following 1947 resulted in the evolution of the "complex technique", in which... individual parts are treated independently and are joined together in complexes of exclusively metrical and tonal consolidation. His studies of dodecaphony from the year 1951 onwards led to an alternative concept to serialism: the employment of "statistic values". In this technique, it is of paramount importance that the distribution of pitches and other parameters result in a harmonically feasible.. [whole], within the bounds of which free development is possible. Kont's most important innovation is the development of the "third tonality" (also called "new" or "wide" tonality) in the years following 1963..." "... In Kont's "third tonality" functional harmony is abolished, and the diatonic and pure-interval voice-leading of the separate parts leads to a sometimes widely branching writing, which, in polyphony, often brings about surreal harmonies. [This]... theory, as formulated in his book, Antianorganikum, finds its most strident application in the Weinheber oratorio, Vom Manne und vom Weibe (" Of Man and of Woman", 1964). Parallel to these innovative concepts, Kont worked - most notably in his Lieder, which were melodically sketched during the war and worked out until 1977 - with a "method of metrical motives", in which motives, melody and form are derived from the metre, verse and stanza of the text. Kont's late work forms an applied synthesis of these various innovations." Christian Heindl, translated by Nicolas Radulescu, in Paul Kont: Music Published by Doblinger, pp. 4-5. The von Kammlers were also the dedicatees of Gottfried von Einem's 4th String Quartet, op. 63.

      Aetas Aurea,Vol. I , 1981, Davaco. . Aetas Aurea,Vol. I , 1981, Davaco. . Cloth bound, dusjacket, 2 vols. in 4to. 516 pp. of text, 468 illustrations, including 12 color plates. Frans van Mieris the Elder is one of the major seventeenth-century Dutch genre painters (1635-1681). His pictures are of remarkable quality, and they attest to his vital role in the development of painting in his time. With Gerard ter Borch, Nicolaes Maes, Pieter de Hooch, Johannes Vermeer, Gabriel Metsu and Gerard Dou, Frans van Mieris participated in the greatest era of Dutch genre painting.This study attempts first to establish the core of surviving works, setting them in chronological order based on a structure of dated paintings. Undated pictures are arranged in relationship to this core and to dated or datable paintings by other artists. Van Mieris' œuvre is most interesting in this latter aspect: in the establishment of subjects and stylistic formulae he often precedes his contemporaries. By combining various elements from earlier pictures with his personal style Van Mieris made a significant contribution to Dutch genre painting.Van Mieris's leadership among the fijnschilders of his day contributed significantly to the development of Dutch painting towards a tighter, more refined style. Often, paintings executed in this manner during the last quarter of the seventeenth century can be seen to derive from his prototype or from a series of related paintings based on his primary example.

        Selected Poems

      London: Anvil Press, , 1981.. London: Anvil Press, 1981. First edition. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Odysseus Elytis on the title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Chosen and introduced by Edmund Keeley and Philip Sherrard. Selected Poems is drawn from various periods of Elytis' career and traces his development from early surrealism, in which he transforms French influence into a distinct personal voice and mythology, through the dramatic style of The Axion Esti with its blend of spirituality and earthiness, up to the later work in which he experiments with new modes for expressing his perennial themes. Elytis was born in Crete in 1911, and began to publish poetry in the 1930s. He took part in the campaign against the Italian fascists in Albania in 1940-41. He was one of the most prominent poets of the Greek resistance during the Nazi occupation. In 1979 Elytis was awarded the Nobel Prize for his poetry which, "against the background of Greek tradition, depicts with sensuous strength and intellectual clear-sightedness modern man's struggle for freedom and creativeness.

        The Mismeasure of Man

      New York & London: W. W. Norton & Company, 1981. New York & London: W. W. Norton & Company,, 1981. Octavo. Original grey boards, red cloth backstrip, titles to spine in gilt and silver. With the dust jacket. An excellent copy in the jacket with slightly sunned spine panel. First edition, first printing of one of Gould's most famous and controversial books. Inscribed by the author on the half title, "For Larry Owens, best wishes, Stephen Jay Gould". In The Mismeasure of Man, Gould analyses craniometry and IQ testing to point out the unconscious biases and a priori assumptions built into much "scientific" research. Though researchers recently made the case that Gould was incorrect about one aspect of the book's argument, it still stands as an important indictment of biological determinism and a lucid reminder that those engaged in research of any type must be aware of their own privilege and biases. A superb copy, rare in such beautiful condition.
