Der wissenschaftliche Kommentarband rückt auf fast 400 Seiten die Handschrift ins Licht einer neuen, umfassenden Betrachtung.Zu diesem Zweck haben sich folgende Experten intensiv mit der Materie rund um die wundervolle Handschrift beschäftigt: Prof. Dr. Ellen J. Beer, Ordinarius für Kunstgeschichte des Mittelalters an der Universität Bern; Prof. Dr. Johannes Duft, Stiftsbibliothekar in St.Gallen, Honorarprofessor für mittelalterliche Geistesgeschichte an der Universität Innsbruck; Prof. Dr. Hubert Herkommer, Ordinarius für Germanische Philologie an der Universität Bern; Dr. Karin Schneider, Handschriftenabteilung der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek München; Prof. Dr. Stefan Sonderegger, Ordinarius für Germanische Philologie an der Universität Zürich, und Prof. Dr. Peter Wegelin, Kantonsbibliothekar in St.Gallen. Das Lieblingsbuch des Mittelalters. Seit Jahrhunderten wird in St. Gallen eine ausgesprochen ritterliche Prachthandschrift des Spätmittelalters aufbewahrt. Dieser Codex bildet in Schrift und Sprache, in Miniaturmalerei und Verserzählung einen Höhepunkt der oberdeutschen Gotik. Die dichterische und malerische Ausgestaltung erzählt Weltgeschichte, wie sie sich den Augen und Ohren einer ritterlichen Gesellschaft in vornehmer Tafelrunde bei einem Becher Wein präsentierte.Um 1300 ließ ein höfischer Auftraggeber zwei mittelhochdeutsche Dichtungen auf Pergament schreiben und mit belebten Szenen auf Goldgrund illuminieren. Die erste Niederschrift dieser Werke lag damals schon ein halbes Jahrhundert zurück. Es handelt sich um die Weltchronik des Rudolf von Ems und das Leben Karls des Großen, geschildert von einem unbekannten Autor, genannt Der "Stricker".Das Alte Testament als Hauptquelle der Weltgeschichte In seinen letzten Lebensjahren schrieb Rudolf von Ems auf Veranlassung des Stauferkönigs Konrad IV. eine Weltchronik in über 33000 paarweise gereimten Versen. Sie behandelt in mittelhochdeutscher Sprache die Geschichte von der Erschaffung der Welt bis zum Tode König Salomos. Die Weltchronik dürfte im ausgehenden Mittelalter zu einer der beliebtesten Dichtungen geworden sein, weil sie es verstand, biblische Geschichte in der Sprache der Zeit zu erzählen. Hier wurde biblisches Heilsgeschehen von der Betrachtung der Vergangenheit in die Bewährung der Gegenwart geführt. Dahin sollten den Leser auch die kostbaren Bilder geleiten: etwa von überschlanken Frauengestalten in wallenden Gewändern, von tapferen Rittern in Rüstung begleitet. Sie führen die Geschichte längst vergangener Jahrhunderte in die Erlebnisnähe des gotischen Hochmittelalters.So wurde die St. Galler Handschrift über den Bodenseeraum hinaus zum Vorbild späterer Bilderchroniken und in unserer Zeit zu einem wertvollen Zeugnis deutscher Miniaturkunst des Mittelalters.Karl der Große - Idealbild des christlichen Herrschers.Das im Spätmittelalter vielgelesene Epos des "Strickers" geht in seinem Ursprung auf das altfranzösische Rolandslied zurück, das vom Regensburger "Pfaffen Konrad" um 1170 erstmals ins Deutsche übertragen worden war. Der "Stricker" erweiterte das alte Heldenlied aus dem Umkreis Karls zur in Versen erzählten Kunde ritterlicher Lebensformen.Im Mittelpunkt steht die Legende um Karl und seinen treuesten Kampfgefährten Roland, der mit dem Schwert Durandal und dem Horn Olifant gegen die Sarazenen kämpft, aber fällt, nachdem er wahre Wunder an Tapferkeit vollbracht hat. Der durch das Horn zu spät herbeigerufene Kaiser besiegt in der Schlacht die Sarazenen; dieser Kampf wird zum Symbol einer endgültigen Entscheidung zwischen Christen und Heiden.Ritterlich-höfisches Leben in kostbaren Miniaturen Die St. Galler Handschrift ist für die oberdeutsche Buchmalerei das bedeutendste Werk der Übergangszeit. Ihre 58 Miniaturen auf Goldgrund erzählen in frischer, körperhafter Sprache und alemannischer Erzählfreude das ritterlich-höfische Leben gegen Ende des 13. Jahrhunderts. Die Unmittelbarkeit und Lebendigkeit des Ausdrucks bricht erstmals mit dem bisherigen Zackenstil, sie zeugt von einem neuen Geist, der von französischen Vorbildern beeinflußt ist. Alttestamentarische Helden in Turnierrüstung, Hofdamen in wallenden gotischen Gewändern erzählen faszinierende biblische Geschichte und Heldensagen aus der Antike sowie aus dem Umkreis Karls des Großen.Rudolf von Ems und "Der Stricker" Rudolf von Ems stammte vermutlich aus dem Vorarlberger Ort Hohenems, der mit dem Kloster St. Gallen durch Jahrhunderte eng verbunden war. Geboren etwa um 1200, gehörte er dem ritterlichen Stand an und stieg später dank seiner hohen Bildung zum staufischen Hofdichter auf.Vom Leben des "Strickers" weiß die Überlieferung noch weniger als von seinem Zeitgenossen Rudolf von Ems. Aus seinem Schaffen allerdings kann man schließen, daß er kein Geistlicher war, wohl auch kein Ritter, sondern eher ein Bürgerlicher. Er nennt sich selbst einmal "heimatlos". Er dürfte aus dem deutschen Südwesten gekommen sein und hat neben Versepen auch gereimte Schwänke und Lehrgedichte verfaßt.

From the introduction by George Segal:'Walter's photographs of women are packed full of his attitudes toward them. Looking at the series of nude in bathtub, with the bubbles, floating flowers, jewelry, and flashing glimpses of breasts, nipples knees, vaginal hair, I thought Walter is really romantic: the Pictures look almost abstract , nothing is harsh or brutal, the color and shape of parts of her body are poetically compared to the exquisite finish of flowers, jewelry, love poetry to a beautiful woman.

      Mountain Grove, Pa. 1982.. Two volumes. [3],231; [1],321pp. being photocopies of newspapers and manuscript; typescript. Folio manuscript bound in black buckram, spine gilt. Quarto typescript bound in green buckram, spine gilt. Fine. The diary of pioneer William Hayes Chamberlin, who traveled from Pennsylvania to California in 1849. These two volumes were compiled by Alexander Chamberlin, great- grandson of the author. In the foreword, he writes: "William H. Chamberlin's Journal was considered lost for thirty years. When I cleaned out the attic of my Father's home in 1980, I found it buried in a box of miscellaneous business publication...It is to make sure that it is not lost again that I have made fourteen photocopies. Each copy is numbered and dated." This is copy number five, with a presentation inscription from the editor. Chamberlin's diary was adapted for the newspaper accounts, appearing in the Lewisburg, Pennsylvania CHRONICLE in 1849 and 1850. The first thirty pages of the folio volume are comprised of photocopies of the newspaper accounts; having both the typescript of the diary and the newspaper account, one can clearly see how the narrative was adapted and expanded for publication. Chamberlin's journey lasted seven months, March through September. His narrative tells of all the perils faced by overland travellers in those days - wagons mired in mud or with broken axles, poor roads, dangerous terrain, encounters with Indians, shortness of supplies, brackish water. Chamberlin provides all manner of details, from how many barrels of flour were purchased and the exorbitant price of mules, to the price of a Mexican saddle he bought in New Mexico ($25); he even provides readers with a general schedule for the journey: "Our general rule for traveling is as follows: Start at 8 o'clock in the morning, and continue without intermission until 4 P.M., when we camp, and graze our mules, until 8, then tie them up until 4 in the morning, and again start at 8." Chamberlin writes of encounters with the locals along the way, including some Mexicans and several groups of Indians. An April 25th entry, written in Shawnee Indian country, reads: "Remained in camp today....The Indians promised to bring us corn and 'coot flour' to camp, but did not fulfil. Persons living in a civilized country, unacquainted with the Indian character, would naturally sympathize with them and would dwell for hours upon the wrongs they had received at the hands of the whites, but a short acquaintance with the Redskins, will suffice to change that opinion. They are a treacherous, lying, dishonest people, with but few redeeming traits of character. We gave them no opportunities to pilfer from us." The folio volume also contains photocopies of a later diary manuscript (approximately 200 pages), dated 1853-57, written while Chamberlin was in California. At the opening of this diary, Chamberlin sets forth his resolution to keep once more a "diary of every day life," and "as far as memory serves me, to fill up the blank space [between the overland journey and the present], with a history of our business operations here, visit home, &c &c." This he does, relating details of a farming endeavor in 1850, once again providing the reader with plenty of description of "every day life" in 1850s California. Chamberlin also tells of a voyage back East, by way of Panama, crossing the Isthmus by land. He writes: "It is my opinion that travellers should always have a supply of wines on hand when in those low latitudes. The water becomes disgustingly bad." The visit back East included a trip to Niagara Falls and briefly into Canada, among other things. The journey back took Chamberlin, variously by rail and steamer, from Philadelphia down the eastern seaboard, with stops in Baltimore, Washington D.C., Richmond, Charleston, and Atlanta, finally ending up in New Orleans just ten days later. Several pages are devoted to a description of Chamberlin's time in New Orleans, including observations about the cemeteries and his encounters with "Negroes." He admits that, had he never traveled "south of 'Mason & Dixon's line,'" the "traffic in flesh & blood" would have "shocked me." After seeing some slaves come out of a store with their master, all spiffied up in new suits and grinning with pride at their new clothes, he writes: "After all, perhaps the best position & best home the Negro has in the world, as a race, is with his Master & owner on our southern plantations, where a comfortable subsistence for life is guaranteed the slave." From New Orleans, they take passage to Vera Cruz and travel overland across Mexico in order to reach California. Chamberlin once again provides excellent details of the journey, including many pages devoted to the scenery and customs of Mexico. Also included in the folio volume is a photocopy of Chamberlin's letter of election to the Society of California Pioneers, a group founded in 1850 and composed of those individuals who settled in California before that year. Chamberlin's narrative is an excellent source for descriptions of life in the old Southwest, written in an easy, readable style. A fascinating piece of western history, unknown to researchers, and full of interesting material.

Title pages on black paper. With the dust jacket. Spine rolled, minor bump to edge of upper board, rear endpapers tanned from inserted material. An excellent copy in the jacket that is just a little rubbed at the extremities. First edition, first printing. Presentation copy inscribed by the author in silver ink on the title, "To Pip & Fred with all my love and thanks for thirty years of friendship – It's nice to be back – Carl (failed recluse)". The recipients were Fred Durant III, a leading US rocket scientist during the 1950s and 60s, and his wife. In addition to working for a number of private aeronautics firms, Durant served as the assistant director of aeronautics for the Air and Space Museum and was also a highly respected independent advisor to the US government on aerospace issues. In 1954 Durant "penned an article for Aviation Week magazine titled 'Space Flight Needs Only Money, Time'. As president of the IAF, he told delegates at its 1954 convention in Innsbruck, Austria, 'The feasibility of space flight is no longer a topic for academic debate but a matter of time, money, and a program.' That same year, he was recruited to participate in the first civilian-oriented effort to put a satellite into orbit. Led by Wernher von Braun, the team developed a concept called Project Orbiter, which later served as the foundation of the successful Explorer I mission launched on 31 January 1958" (IEEE Spectrum, 2007). Clarke was good friends with the Durants, staying with them on several occasions when his work took him to Washington D. C., and Durant became the first executive director of the Arthur C. Clarke foundation when it was formed in 1983. A superb association.

Her third novel, The Color Purple won Alice Walker the 1983 Pulitzer Price, making her the first African-American woman to win one. "While Walker's first two novels end in the promise of good, The Color Purple ends in happiness, reunion and celebration. Walker has said that she took her great-grandmother's life, which included rape and childbearing at age 11, and gave it a happy ending. Once again she had begun with one of her ancestors' stories, completing and transmuting it through her art" (African American Writers, 351). "Critics have both praised and attacked Walker's use of black folk English to capture [protagonist] Celie's perspective. Walker responded, 'Language is an intrinsic part of who we are and what has, for good or evil, happened to us. And, amazingly, it has sustained us more securely than the arms of angels'" (New York Public Library, Books of the Century, 135).
