        Zweiwochenschrift. Hrsg. von Hans Leybold (Nr. 5 hrsg. von Franz Jung). 1. Jahrg., Hefte 1-5. [Alles Erschienene.]

      Vollständige Folge einer der wichtigsten und seltensten frühexpressionistischen Zeitschriften mit prädadaistischem Impetus. - Nach dem Vorbild der ?Aktion? Pfemferts gedruckt, war die ?Revolution? für kurze Zeit das überregional bekannte Periodikum der Schwabinger Bohème, welche jedoch zunehmend von München nach Berlin zog der Kreis des Cafés Stefanie? fand sich nun im ?Café des Westens? am Kurfürstendamm wieder. Damit markiert die ?Revolution? gewissermaßen den bedeutsamen Endpunkt der Schwabinger Ära (vgl. Franz Jung. Der Weg nach Unten. Hamburg 1988, S. 77 ff.). Von den hierin erschienenen Publikationen gingen wesentliche Impulse für den Expressionismus aus gleichzeitig fanden sich in der ?Revolution? bereits einige Protagonisten des späteren Dadaismus zusammen, namentlich Hugo Ball, Emmy Hennings, Richard Huelsenbeck und Franz Jung. Eröffnet wurde die Reihe mit einer Reflexion über das Wort ?Revolution? von Erich Mühsam. - Die erste Nummer wurde aufgrund des von Hugo Ball verfassten Gedichtes ?Der Gehenkte? konfisziert. - Heft Nummer 5 erschien als Sondernummer für den Anarchisten und Psychoanalytiker Otto Groß, der auf Veranlassung seines Vaters in die Landesirrenanstalt Troppau eingeliefert worden war. Franz Jung erinnerte sich später an die Herausgabe der Sondernummer: ?Ich selbst hatte mir von Johannes R. Becher die Zeitschrift ?Revolution? ausgeborgt, die dieser in München zusammen mit Bachmair herausgab. Ich füllte die Zeitschrift mit Zuschriften und Beiträgen von Dichtern und Schriftstellern aus aller Welt für das Recht des individuellen Erlebens gegen den gefährlichen Starrsinn väterlicher Autorität. Dem Professor wurde die Fähigkeit abgesprochen zu lehren, ein Amt zu bekleiden - eine internationale Schande der Rechtswissenschaft. Zu Studentendemonstrationnen an den österreichischen Universitäten wurde aufgerufen. Nicht genug damit: ich hatte aus dem Grazer Adreßbuch Hunderte von Adressen herausgeschrieben, die Caféhäuser in Graz und Wien, die Universitäten, die Büchereien, die Buchhandlungen... ich habe über 1000 Exemplare der ?Revolution? auf diese Weise versandt [...] Als auch die Kampagne in der österreichischen Öffentlichkeit aufgegriffen wurde [...] gab der Alte klein bei.? (Ebenda, S. 84.) - Hugo Ball schrieb 1915 in seiner ?Totenrede? für Hans Leybold, der sich als Soldat im Ersten Weltkrieg das Leben nahm, über die Herausgabe der fünf Hefte: ?Als die Zeitschrift gegründet war, verlangten die Abonnenten ein Programm. Leybold sprach: ?Wohlan denn, Ihr , wennschon immerhin: Hier habet ihr ein Programm. Und schrieb: ,Kampf gegen Seiendes, für Keimendes. Gegen Kunst - portiere, Kulturportiere, Avenariusse, Scharrelmänner, Obskuranten, Schwärzlinge, Hertlinge, Hohlwege, Panteutschisten, Stagnaten, Kastraten. Gegen literaturbehaftete Oberlehrer, kunstsinnige Kritiker, allgemeine Rundschauer. In summa: Gegen Zuständliches. Und fügte hinzu:Nichtschriftsteller heraus! Keine Literaten sollen gezüchtet werden. Da hatte man die Revolution! Da war sie. 20 Jahre alt war der Kerl. Sehr hurtig. Und paffte einfach drauf los.? (Die weissen Blätter. Jahrg. 2, Heft 4. S. 525.) - Die fünf Nummern enthalten u.a. Beiträge von Hugo Ball, Johannes R. Becher, Ernst Blass, Franz Blei, Max Brod, Leonhard Frank, Iwan Goll, Walter Hasenclever, Emmy Hennings, Kurt Hiller, Jakob van Hoddis, Richard Huelsenbeck, Franz Jung, Klabund, Else Lasker-Schüler, Alfred Lichtenstein, Erich Mühsam, Robert Musil, Karl Otten, Ludwig Rubiner, René Schickele. - Nummer 1 erschien in einer Auflage von 3000 Exemplaren, Nummern 2-5 in 5000 Exemplaren. - Druck in Rot und Schwarz auf holzhaltigem Zeitungspapier.- Hefte partiell mit sehr kleinen Flecken u.

        Wood Engravings by Gertrude Hermes being illustrations to Selborne. (Gregynog)

      Gwasg Gregynog, Newtown, Powys. 1988 - Newtown, Powys.: Gwasg Gregynog, 1988. Limited Edition. Cloth. Near Fine. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Gertrude Hermes. With extracts from Gilbert White. Introduced by William Condry with a postscript by James Hamilton. No inscriptions etc, (x), 30 pp, 6 pls, 355*240 mm, printed on the Hedelberg Cylinder, part of the title, headings and marginal notes in brown, bound by Smith Settle, in quarter fawn cloth, gold rule, with brown on cream patterned boards, titled in gold on the spine, this is number 1 of 200 ordinary copies, then there were 15 unbound copies and 25 specials. The 6 wood engravings by Hermes are stunning to say the least and thought by many to be among her very best prints, and published here by arrangement with the NLW for the first time. (Esslemont Hughes 19) Hermes, Gertrude Anna Bertha, printmaker, sculptor, and designer, moved with her husband, in 1930 to Montgomeryshire, where Hughes-Stanton had been appointed wood-engraver to the Gregynog Press. The press also contracted Hermes to engrave for them, but their production was frustrated by her inability, through deep unhappiness, to complete wood-engravings for A Natural History of Selborne by Gilbert White, and the edition never appeared.

        Archive of 13 First Printing Books of Poetry from Lotus Press (Detroit, MI) / AFRICAN-AMERICAN PUBLISHING HOUSE BUILT BY NAOMI LONG MADGETT

      Detroit, MI: Lotus Press, 1988. First Edition, First Printing. Original wraps. Near Fine. Archive of 13 First Edition, First Printing books from the stock of Lotus Press of Detroit, Michigan. The Lotus Press, an important engine behind the Black Arts Movement, was opened by Naomi Long Madgett after recognizing the need for artistic and powerful poetry publishing in the Black community. Having started the press in 1972, the Lotus Press is recognized as the 2nd oldest black-owned press in the United States. The press has now merged with the Broadside Press, the oldest black-owned press in the United States. This run includes several pieces by James Emanuel, one of the 20th Century's best and most neglected poets. While his work can be a bit dark and racially charged, he is largely ignored for his tough-beat style and lack of academic principle. I must admit, his work appeals to me at a deeper level as I believe his methods speak plainly, but loudly. Also included in this run is a title from Jill Witherspoon Boyer, the daughter of the founder of the press, Naomi Long Madgett. Jill worked in an editorial capacity at Broadside Press before the merge with Lotus. This archive includes First Printing copies of: O AFRICA WHERE I BAKED BREAD by Lance Jeffers (1977 - 77 PP) BLACK MAN ABROAD: THE TOULOUSE POEMS by James A. Emanuel (1978 - 76 PP) DEAR DARK FACES: PORTRAITS OF A PEOPLE selected by Helen Earle Simcox (1980 - 104PP) A CHISEL IN THE DARK (POEMS: SELECTED AND NEW) by James A. Emanuel (1980 - 73 PP) THE ANTIOCH SUITE-JAZZ by Abba Elethea (James W. Thompson) (1980 - 36 PP) HEARTLAND: SELECTED POEMS by Ron Welburn (1981 - 67 PP) DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS by Ray Fleming (1982 - 59 PP) THE BROKEN BOWL (NEW AND UNCOLLECTED POEMS) by James A. Emanuel (1983 - 85 PP) COLLAGE by Mwatabu Okantah (1984 - 71 PP) BREAKING CAMP by Jill Witherspoon Boyer (1984 - 61 PP) DELTA DANCER by Sybil Kein (1984 - 89 PP) DEADLY JAMES AND OTHER POEMS by James A. Emanuel (1987 - 82 PP) HALFWAY TO THE SUN by May Miller ( 1988 - 52 PP) All volumes are perfect bound but for The Antioch Suite-Jazz which is saddle-stapled. All volumes sharp and clean.

        [Diaries and Scrapbook]: Woman's Scrapbook and Travel Diary to Europe from New Jersey

      Allenhurst, New Jersey / Arizona / Europe, 1988. Very Good. Two volumes. Octavo and 24mo. 212pp.; 184pp. Black leather boards and three quarter maroon leather with pink and purple decorated cloth-covered boards with silver spine decorations. The 24mo journal has light edgewear with a small mark on the front board else near fine. The octavo journal has edgewear, bumped spine ends and corners, with tears on the spine, very good. Two journals of a young woman featuring her musings from 1978 to 1988, postcards from friends around the world, and an account of her trip to Europe in the spring of 1981. Contains poems, quotes, drawings, and other written ideas and thoughts by the author; additionally features three color photographs measuring 4.5" x 3.5" and several postcards measuring between 5.5" x 3.5" and 6.5" x 4.5". Two handwritten journals by a young woman from Monmouth County, New Jersey from 1978 to 1988 with pieces of ephemera from her adolescence. The woman was 21 when she first started writing in her larger journal. The written pieces include poems, quotes from books and movies, drawings, and her thoughts; most of which are interesting and boarder on the obscure and morbid. She frequently writes of her dreams though they are often nightmares: "Nightmare this past night-time. Left me numb- Silence in the shower." Between dream descriptions she jots down passing thoughts: "I saw the energy steaming from the top of my head and the top of my shoulder today- in my shadow- on my paper. Fan-out," and poems: "Easily distracted / you think me insane... Don't drag me down... All you are is in your pants / Why don't you wear it out?" During her visit to Arizona in 1978, she complains of the muggy weather and devotes one page to drawings of the bugs she finds, labeling them "Friends of Arizona." Her drawings are odd, one of which is a portrait of herself with the word, "psycho" written below. Another drawing is of a person holding a gun and shooting a wall covered in cupids and hearts. The words "that potential psychotic killer who comes into the library and stares at us... the unsuspected hatchet murderer awaits," are written to the side of the page with a drawing of a man. Several drawings are of skeletons and the words "Dead Head," likely a Grateful Dead reference. She returned home in May 1978 and writes how nice it is to see everyone and later writes about her friend Lois, who is featured in one of the two photographs in the larger journal. Lois is mentioned several times in both books, often commenting on the writer's actions, "You've got a scheming evil look in your eyes..." The included postcards are from friends in London, Washington, DC, Florida, New York, and New Jersey. One is a postcard from a friend of hers pretending to be James Taylor asking "Kimbo" to come see him in the movie Two-Lane Blacktop "before my receding hairline has no place left to go. Catch 'ya later, babe J.T." with a peace sign. The others include warm letters to the writer and ask how she's been and that she is missed by her friends. The smaller journal is of her trip through Europe, with her friends Lois and Ginny. Most of the book includes notes to herself on what not to do in certain places like, "walking up a hill to your hostile(sic) when it isn't even open," and "what you pack, you carry." One entry describes two men with "fat bellies" dancing with her and her friends during their stay in Leipzig, Germany: "One sat at our table and tried to communicate in German. After a bit of confusion, Sue came up with the brilliant conclusion that he wanted a kiss. I kiss the fat guy (on the cheek) and he brought us nuts & chips, to quote Ginny 'Good going!"" Most of the stories are of the joyous and interesting moments she experienced; as contrasted to her larger, more juvenile and emotional journal. Also included in the smaller journal is a color picture of her dancing. An extensive look at a young woman's interior life from 1978-1988 with wide vacillations between happiness and morbidity.

        Sketchbook]: Death is as Natural as Rain

      [Virginia 1988 - Blank book. Unpaged, approximately 100pp. Black boards with a sticker of The Damned affixed to the front board along with three more stickers on the front pastedown. Very good with moderate wear at the corners, rubbing and a touch of loss at the spine ends. A book filled with more than 200 macabre pen and ink illustrations by what appears to be a tattoo artist/musician from Virginia who signed his work "Fishead." The drawings cover nearly every right-hand page (with a few two-page spreads) consisting of creepy clowns, skulls, wraiths, dragons, mummies/zombies, mermen, and ghouls of all kinds. The drawings run the gamut from crude sketches to finely and fairly skillfully drawn images with several finished with a high level of detail and one partially colored. Interspersed are also notes about a van the artist is saving to buy, along with various names, phone numbers (from across the country), and lines of verse, likely song lyrics. The sketchbook also contains two short holograph text pieces; one about a man forced to serve a drunken but benevolent king and another concerning Muddy Helmet, "the first country, blues, jazz, rockabilly, death rock, classic rock band." An interesting collection of drawing from an unknown aspiring artist and musician. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Zweiwochenschrift. Hrsg. von Hans Leybold (Nr. 5 hrsg. von Franz Jung). 1. Jahrg., Hefte 1-5. [Alles Erschienene.]

      Vollständige Folge einer der wichtigsten und seltensten frühexpressionistischen Zeitschriften mit prädadaistischem Impetus. - Nach dem Vorbild der ?Aktion? Pfemferts gedruckt, war die ?Revolution? für kurze Zeit das überregional bekannte Periodikum der Schwabinger Bohème, welche jedoch zunehmend von München nach Berlin zog der Kreis des Cafés Stefanie? fand sich nun im ?Café des Westens? am Kurfürstendamm wieder. Damit markiert die ?Revolution? gewissermaßen den bedeutsamen Endpunkt der Schwabinger Ära (vgl. Franz Jung. Der Weg nach Unten. Hamburg 1988, S. 77 ff.). Von den hierin erschienenen Publikationen gingen wesentliche Impulse für den Expressionismus aus gleichzeitig fanden sich in der ?Revolution? bereits einige Protagonisten des späteren Dadaismus zusammen, namentlich Hugo Ball, Emmy Hennings, Richard Huelsenbeck und Franz Jung. Eröffnet wurde die Reihe mit einer Reflexion über das Wort ?Revolution? von Erich Mühsam. - Die erste Nummer wurde aufgrund des von Hugo Ball verfassten Gedichtes ?Der Gehenkte? konfisziert. - Heft Nummer 5 erschien als Sondernummer für den Anarchisten und Psychoanalytiker Otto Groß, der auf Veranlassung seines Vaters in die Landesirrenanstalt Troppau eingeliefert worden war. Franz Jung erinnerte sich später an die Herausgabe der Sondernummer: ?Ich selbst hatte mir von Johannes R. Becher die Zeitschrift ?Revolution? ausgeborgt, die dieser in München zusammen mit Bachmair herausgab. Ich füllte die Zeitschrift mit Zuschriften und Beiträgen von Dichtern und Schriftstellern aus aller Welt für das Recht des individuellen Erlebens gegen den gefährlichen Starrsinn väterlicher Autorität. Dem Professor wurde die Fähigkeit abgesprochen zu lehren, ein Amt zu bekleiden - eine internationale Schande der Rechtswissenschaft. Zu Studentendemonstrationnen an den österreichischen Universitäten wurde aufgerufen. Nicht genug damit: ich hatte aus dem Grazer Adreßbuch Hunderte von Adressen herausgeschrieben, die Caféhäuser in Graz und Wien, die Universitäten, die Büchereien, die Buchhandlungen... ich habe über 1000 Exemplare der ?Revolution? auf diese Weise versandt [...] Als auch die Kampagne in der österreichischen Öffentlichkeit aufgegriffen wurde [...] gab der Alte klein bei.? (Ebenda, S. 84.) - Hugo Ball schrieb 1915 in seiner ?Totenrede? für Hans Leybold, der sich als Soldat im Ersten Weltkrieg das Leben nahm, über die Herausgabe der fünf Hefte: ?Als die Zeitschrift gegründet war, verlangten die Abonnenten ein Programm. Leybold sprach: ?Wohlan denn, Ihr , wennschon immerhin: Hier habet ihr ein Programm. Und schrieb: ,Kampf gegen Seiendes, für Keimendes. Gegen Kunst - portiere, Kulturportiere, Avenariusse, Scharrelmänner, Obskuranten, Schwärzlinge, Hertlinge, Hohlwege, Panteutschisten, Stagnaten, Kastraten. Gegen literaturbehaftete Oberlehrer, kunstsinnige Kritiker, allgemeine Rundschauer. In summa: Gegen Zuständliches. Und fügte hinzu:Nichtschriftsteller heraus! Keine Literaten sollen gezüchtet werden. Da hatte man die Revolution! Da war sie. 20 Jahre alt war der Kerl. Sehr hurtig. Und paffte einfach drauf los.? (Die weissen Blätter. Jahrg. 2, Heft 4. S. 525.) - Die fünf Nummern enthalten u.a. Beiträge von Hugo Ball, Johannes R. Becher, Ernst Blass, Franz Blei, Max Brod, Leonhard Frank, Iwan Goll, Walter Hasenclever, Emmy Hennings, Kurt Hiller, Jakob van Hoddis, Richard Huelsenbeck, Franz Jung, Klabund, Else Lasker-Schüler, Alfred Lichtenstein, Erich Mühsam, Robert Musil, Karl Otten, Ludwig Rubiner, René Schickele. - Nummer 1 erschien in einer Auflage von 3000 Exemplaren, Nummern 2-5 in 5000 Exemplaren. - Druck in Rot und Schwarz auf holzhaltigem Zeitungspapier.- Hefte partiell mit sehr kleinen Flecken u. Randläsuren. Nr. 1 an Rücken u. Seitenkanten mit kleinen dezenten Restaurierungen u. Buchhandelsstempel, Umschlag von Nr. 1 u. Nr. 4 mit schwachen Notizen in Blei.
