        ANNE FRANK: DIARY OF A YOUNG GIRL

      - West Hatfield, Mass.; Pennyroyal Press with Jewish Heritage Publishing, 1985. Full Morocco. Folio. [196] pages. 35 x 23 cm. Two volumes housed in linen slipcase. Het Achterhuis, the Diary of Anne Frank, with illustrations, deluxe letterpress printed edition. One of 350 numbered copies, signed by Joseph Goldyne and Barry Moser. Gray morocco by Ellenport of Boston, stamped in blind, with quarter gray morocco and linen matching chemise for the tissued plates, slipcased. 14 x 9 inches (35 x 23 cm); text volume unpaginated (with ten plates), the chemise with ten pencil signed plates. Goldyne's work comprises etching, aquatint and roulette. Anne Frank’s Diary, appearing first in Dutch as "HET ACHTERHUIS: DAGBOEKBRIEVEN 12 JUNI 1942-1 AUGUSTUS 1944" and later in English as "The Diary of a Young Girl," is a work which continues to hold its place at the top of many literary lists: the most famous diary of modern times, the most famous work by a teenager, most famous work on the Holocaust, most famous 20th Century work by a Jew, etc . Primo Levi suggested that Anne Frank is frequently identified as a single representative of the millions of people who suffered and died as she did because "One single Anne Frank moves us more than the countless others who suffered just as she did but whose faces have remained in the shadows. Perhaps it is better that way; if we were capable of taking in all the suffering of all those people, we would not be able to live." Otto Frank, Anne’s father spent the remainder of his life after publication of the Diary as custodian of his daughter's legacy, saying, "It's a strange role. In the normal family relationship, it is the child of the famous parent who has the honor and the burden of continuing the task. In my case the role is reversed." He recalled his publisher's explaining why he thought the diary has been so widely read, with the comment, "he said that the diary encompasses so many areas of life that each reader can find something that moves him personally." Simon Wiesenthal expressed a similar sentiment when he said that the diary had raised more widespread awareness of the Holocaust than had been achieved during the Nuremberg Trials, because "people identified with this child. This was the impact of the Holocaust, this was a family like my family, like your family and so you could understand this" (Wikipedia, 2012). This edition comprised a commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of the death of Anne Frank. This title has sold at auction in 2007, 2009, & 2011 for over USD 1550. Subjects: World War, 1939-1945 - Jews. Frank, Anne, 1929-1945. Netherlands - History - German occupation, 1940-1945. Near Fine Condition. Beautiful and Powerful. (HOLO2-105-48) [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        München, Blick auf Häuser des Isarhochufers am Gasteig, vorne ein Arm der Isar, begrenzt von Gebüsch.

      . Sepia-Pinsel, über Bleistift, auf Bütten, verso bezeichnet "Gasteig". 17,6:23,5 cm. "Zu den Überraschungen im zeichnerischen OEuvre Franz Kobells gehören die zahlreichen Skizzen, die ohne Vorzeichnung mit dem Pinsel in Sepia ausgeführt sind... In dieser Art der Landschaftssicht und in ihrer zeichnerischen Umsetzung löst sich Franz Kobell von der Tradition des 17. und 18. Jahrhunderts und darf darin als einer der frühen Vertreter realistischer Landschaftsdarstellung angesehen werden. Da Zeichenstil und Auffassung unverändert bleiben, ist die Datierung nicht eindeutig möglich. Erste Blätter dieser Art dürften bereits im letzten Jahrzehnt des 18. Jahrhunderts entstanden sein." (zitiert aus: Deutsche Landschaftszeichnungen des 18. Jahrhunderts aus der Graphischen Sammlung Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, 1985, Aufl. 2000, S. 72). Zwischen 1814 und 1820 schuf Kobell eine Reihe von Sepia-Pinselzeichnungen mit Motiven, die in und um München entstanden sind. Vergleichsliteratur: Op. cit., Nrn. 32 u. 33; Th. Herbig: Franz Kobell. Ein Landschaftszeichner um 1800, Traunstein/Reutlingen 1997, Abb. 46-48, 51, 74-78 (Farbabb.); Katalog: Von Mannheim nach München. Die Künstlerfamilie Kobell, Mannheim/München 1993, Nrn. 38-42, mit Farbabb.; Ausst. Katalog: Franz Kobell, München 2005, Farbabb. S. 40-75.. Nach einer Ausbildung zum Kaufmann in Mainz kehrte Franz Kobell 1762 in seine Geburtsstadt Mannheim zurück, wo er von seinem Bruder Ferdinand (1740-1799) auch künstlerisch unterstützt wurde. 1771-1778 bildete er sich zusätzlich an der Mannheimer Zeichnungsakademie aus. 1778 erhielt er von Kurfürst Karl Theodor von der Pfalz eine Pension, die ihm eine Reise nach Italien ermöglichte, wo er sich hauptsächlich in Rom aufhielt. Hier war er insbesondere dem Maler F. Müller (1749-1825), dem Dichter W. Heise und dem Bildhauer A. Trippel (1744-1793) freundschaftlich verbunden. Die Beschäftigung mit der Malerei N. Poussins (1594-1665) und Cl. Lorrains (1600-1682) hatte großen Einfluß auf sein späteres Werk; er wandte sich ganz und gar der Landschaftskunst zu. Bereits 1780 wurde er zum Hofmaler am 1778 nach München verlegten Mannheimer Hof ernannt. 1784 kehrte er aus Italien nah München zurück. Ab 1793 lebte er in Wohngemeinschaft mit seinem Bruder Ferdinand und seinem Neffen Wilhelm von Kobell (1766-1853) in München. Der zeichnerische Nachlaß des Künstlers wird auf mehr als 10.000 Blatt geschätzt.
