        Schuljunge mit großem Globus am Schreibtisch, wahrscheinlich der Sohn des Künstlers. Ölgemälde auf Platte, unsigniert und undatiert ( aus Künstlernachlaß, wohl um 1940 ).

      Bildmaß ca. 49 x 69 cm ( Höhe x Breite ). Das Bild etwas berieben, etwas fleckig, zu den Außenrändern bedingt durch alte Rahmung stärker berieben. Walter Kohlhoff ( *1906Berlin 1981 ebenda ). W. Kohlhoff war über 20 Jahre lang Vorstandsmitglied des Vereins Berliner Künstler. Maler urbaner Landschaften Berlins und seiner Umgebung. Kohlhoff zeigt seine Stadtbilder menschenleer und verleiht ihnen somit teils einen denkmalhaften Charakter. In seinen Arbeiten wendet er sich vor allem den ruhigen Orten der Großstadt wie auch Hinterhöfen, Großstadtdächern und abgelegenen Arealen wie Seitenstrassen, Kleingärten, Bahngleisen, Fabrikanlagen etc.. Er malte im Rahmen einer späten Neusachlichkeit. Dies gilt auch für seine anderen Motive wie Bilder aus den Alpen, Landschaftsstudien, Stilleben. Ferner malte er Porträts, Selbstporträts und Aktzeichnungen. ( Weitere Bilder auf Anfrage further pics at request ) ( Artikelnumer 15763 )

        The Complete EC Library: Shock Suspenstories (3 Volume Boxed Set)

      Russ Cochran, 1981. Hard Cover. VF - Very Fine. Various. 3 Volume Slipcased set. Published originally by William M. Gaines. When Shock SuspenStories appeared in 1951 it was designed as a showcase title with examples of EC's (Entertaining Comics) crime, horror & science fiction stories. The second issue featured a shock story designed to provoke a reaction, In Gratitude. In subsequent issues, these "preachies" as publisher William M. Gaines liked to call them, dealt with race relations, rape, bigotry, hazing & all manner of formerly taboo subject. These stories lift Shock SuspenStories into the upper echelons of EC's output. Whilst not a horror Comic, two issues of Entertaining Comic's (EC) Crime SuspenStories were the subject of US Senate Committees investigations. The crowbar murder Issue (#23) & its predecessor, the notorious severed head cover. As the investigating Senator Kefauver said at the time “You have blood coming out of her mouth.” After publisher William M. Gaines coy admission, Kefauver continued "There is blood on the axe. I think most adults are shocked by that." With Russ Cochran's Complete Crime SuspenStories you can enjoy all of these graphic masterpieces, illustrated by Johnny Craig, Jack Kamen, Graham “Ghastly” Ingels, Jack Davis, Reed Crandall & several other top-flight illustrators from the EC stable. There is also an adaptation of a Ray Bradbury short story in issue #9 (The October Game). There are several late stories by one of the masters of visual story telling, Berni Krigstein. Whilst Al Williamson's artistry was demonstrated in two stories, the second assisted by Frank Frazetta (Fired! #17). There are also the stark yet oddly beautiful covers of Johnny Craig, which will linger and play in the imagination. Each book is smyth sewn and deluxe bound to last a lifetime of re-reading. Very Fine condition with only minor shelf-wear to slipcase. Black & White illustrations. 10" x 13" (25cm x 33cm). Slipcase.

        A Confederacy Of Dunces

      Allen Lane, London 1981 - First UK Impression, one of only 1500 copies, with a foreword by Walker Percy. 8vo: xii,338pp. Publisher's parchment-colored paper-covered boards, spine lettered in gilt; illustrated dust jacket, repriced with publisher's sticker £7.95. A superlative copy (indeed As New) and yet another example of the value to be found in UK editions of American authors's works. This cult classic (and now mainstream success) first appeared eleven years after Toole's suicide, published through the efforts of Walker Percy and Toole's mother, earning Toole a posthumous Pulitzer Prize. The book's title is drawn from Jonathan Swift's essay Thoughts on Various Subjects, Moral and Diverting: "When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him." The book chronicles the "misadventures of Ignatius Jacques Reilly, an obese, lazy, obnoxious, opinionated, erudite, quixotic thirty-year-old medievalist who views himself as "an anachronism": he criticizes, and alienates himself from, the contemporary reality of 1960s New Orleans, preferring, in the "Miltonic isolation" of his bedroom, an idealized medieval world view inspired by Boethius' Consolation of Philosophy and determined by Fortuna, the goddess of fortune." the misadventures of Ignatius J. Reilly, a lazy, obese, misanthropic, self-styled scholar who lives at home with his mother in the Uptown neighborhood of early 1960s New Orleans." (Literary Encyclopedia) Toole wrote the novel in 1963, during his final few months in Puerto Rico. The novel has sold some 1.5 million copies and has been translated into more than 20 languages. Toole is now widely regarded as a gifted prose stylist who has immortalized the eccentricity of New Orleans. N. B.

        Littlewoods Computer Center

      Liverpool, 1981. Album of photographs from the Littlewoods Computer Center, showing then state-of-the-art (now obsolete) computer technology, being a presentation album made by Service Engineers John Laing Design Associates Limited, one of the four notable firms involved in the project. Contains 14 colour photographs, measuring approximately 12 x 17 cm, mounted recto and verso onto heavy sage green cardstock leaves, each captioned in typescript, and preserved with plastic sleeves in a ring binder measuring approximately 28 x 32 x 4 cm. Also containing a dedication page and specifications sheet. At the time housing and utilising the latest in computer technology, the "New Computer Building" was owned by Littlewoods Organisation Ltd., a notable Liverpool firm whose own architects were part of the design team. It was a four storey building, 3600 square meters, with limited access for security reasons. Indeed advanced for the time, a card key operated the turnstile entrance door. By today's standards, the machines were behemoth-sized. Ventilation and refrigeration were of utmost importance, and are well illustrated in these views, with ventilated ceilings and floor air returns for continuous circulation, immense water chilling machines and chilled water pumps to produce cool air for the building, air cooled condensers, "heat rejection voids" a separate room for an air conditioning plant, and giant filter systems throughout. The cooling requirements were 200 tonnes flowing at all times, and 100 tonnes on standby. For an uninterrupted power source, rows upon rows of batteries were lined up like soldiers, each connected to the other, in the special battery chamber. Three computer rooms are shown, where one cannot help but to notice the infamous DOS screens, and again, the sheer physical size of the equipment. The "data preparation area" is a room with a half a dozen desks, and male employees working in mounds of paper documents. The main processing unit was a Honeywell Levell 66. [The Honeywell 6000 series computers were rebadged versions of General Electric's 600-series mainframes manufactured by Honeywell International Inc from 1970 to 1989. Honeywell acquired the line when it purchased GE's computer division in 1966 and continued to develop them under a variety of names for many years. In 1975 the 6000-series systems were renamed as Level 66, which were slightly faster (to 1.2 MIPS) and offered larger memories. In 1977 the line was again renamed 66/DPS, and in 1979 to DPS-8, again with a small performance improvement to 1.7 MIPS.] A fascinating visual reminder of the foundational inventions which would change the world in then inconceivable ways, not only improving communications, finance, and transport, but every industry large and small, and every future household too.
