Die unglaubliche Geschichte eines jungen Grafikers, der im Untergrund gegen die Nazis kämpfte. Mit Zeichnungen des Autors», Scherzverlag, Frankfurt. 8°, 235 S. - Cioma Schönhaus (1922), Grafiker. Seine russischen Eltern waren 1920 aus Minsk nach Berlin gekommen, nachdem sein Vater aus der Roten Armee desertiert hatte. Schönhaus wuchs zunächst im Scheunenviertel auf. Von 1924 bis 1925 hielt sich die Familie in der Nähe von Haifa (Palästina) auf, kehrte aber dann nach Berlin zurück. 1940 besuchte er ein Jahr lang eine Kunstgewerbeschule. Von 1941 an musste er unter anderem in einem Rüstungsbetrieb arbeiten.Nach der Deportation seiner Eltern im Juni 1942 tauchte er in Berlin unter. In der Illegalität fertigte der Grafiker Schönhaus gefälschte Pässe für andere im Untergrund lebende Juden an, darunter für den Historiker Ernst Ludwig Ehrlich. Dabei arbeitete er mit Mitgliedern der Bekennenden Kirche (unter anderen Kurt Müller) zusammen. Für die gefälschten Pässe erhielt er von einem Helferkreis um den Juristen Franz Kaufmann Lebensmittelkarten, sodass er eine scheinlegale Existenz aufbauen konnte. Dafür benutzte er die Namen ?Günther Rogoff?, ?Peter Schönhausen? und ?Peter Petrow?.1943 gelang Schönhaus die Flucht in die Schweiz, wo ihm der Theologe Karl Barth ein Stipendium vermittelte. An der Kunstgewerbeschule in Basel absolvierte er eine Ausbildung zum Grafiker und arbeitete später in diesem Beruf. Schönhaus hat vier Söhne, wobei zwei davon die Musikerkarriere einschlugen. In Anlehnung an ihren Familiennamen gründeten sie die Klezmerformation ?Bait Jaffe?, was soviel bedeutet wie ?schönes Haus? 1100 gr. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Extracts from the Devil's Dictionary

      (Hyattsville, MD: Rebecca Press, 1988). (26)pp. Ambrose Bierce's satirical alphabet is accompanied by small woodcuts illustrating such definitions as "Type: Pestilent bits of metal suspected of destroying civilization and enlightenment." This is an out-of-series copy in a designer binding by Mark Esser. A red goatskin onlay extends across the spine and covers, outlined with blind tooling to form flames on a contrasting background of cool charcoal gray French chagreen goatskin. Gilt tooled lines, dots, and scattered letters emanate from the blaze. According to the artist, "The design depicts the jumbled letters of the title tossed up from the fires of Hades. This alludes to both the supposed creator of the dictionary and to the type setting errors historically attributed to the printer's devil. The job of apprentice to a printer, or printer's devil, was once held by the young Ambrose Bierce." Golden-yellow doublures and fly leaves of bright orange paste paper stippled and sprinkled with gilt, made by the binder, complete the design. Three extra, double folio, blank sections of Ruscombe Mill's C.80 paper have been added to expand the width of the textblock. Esser studied fine bookbinding under David Brock and apprenticed with William Anthony, while also working as a conservator. He was the first instructor for the hand bookbinding program at the North Bennett Street School in Boston, where he developed the curriculum and taught for fifteen years. Housed in a tan raw silk-covered box with a red morocco lettering piece to spine. Very fine. A.e.g. (2 5/8 by 2 3/16; 67x55mm).
