Bildquelle: Excelsior Verlag, Berlin Der 1868 in Berlinchen, Neumark, geborene Lasker trug siebenundzwanzig Jahre den Titel des Schachweltmeisters (18941921), eine nie wieder erreichte Leistung. Laskers Persönlichkeit zeichnete sich durch eine enorme Vielseitigkeit aus. Er promovierte in Mathematik, schrieb mehrere philosophische Werke, betätigte sich als Herausgeber von Schachzeitschriften, Sachbüchern und verfasste literarische Werke. Er floh vor den Nationalsozialisten ins Exil, zuerst Holland, die Sowjetunion und schließlich die USA. 1941 starb er in New York. In Deutschland war Lasker außerhalb der Schachwelt wenig bekannt. Umso bekannter war er dagegen im Ausland. Die vorliegende Monographie bündelt in umfassender Weise Laskers kulturelles und geistiges Erbe in Schach, Philosophie und Geistesleben. 25 international renommierte Autoren beleuchten das vielschichtige Leben und Werk. Einen Themenschwerpunkt bildet Laskers einzigartige Schachkarriere, von den Anfängen über die lange Weltmeisterzeit bis hin zum überraschenden Comeback im Pensionsalter.

Ein Megawerk mit 3,5 Kilo Gewicht! - IM Bernd Schneider --- Jedem an der Person Lasker und an der Geschichte des Schachs interessierten Leser stehen viele genussreiche Stunden bevor." Peter Anderberg, Kaissiber 36 --- Das mehrjährige Projekt verzögerte sich leider durch die Probleme, die bei einer solchen internationalen Zusammenarbeit nicht ausbleiben. Mitherausgeber Michael Negele legte in seinem Beitrag in Schach 1/2010 die Imponderabilien mit den 26 Mitarbeiter dar, die mehrfach das Gelingen des Ganzen auf die Probe gestellt hatten. Doch Negele und sein kongenialer Partner Richard Forster, der mit seinem schachhistorischen Mammutwerk über Amos Burn die Vorlage zu dem jetzigen Folianten gab, meisterten mit viel Idealismus alle Schwierigkeiten. Das Forschungsprojekt erhielt einen erheblichen Aufschwung, als Negele & Co. während ihrer Recherchen in der Cleveland Public Library in Ohio einen bislang ungesichteten Nachlass entdeckten. Eine Auswahl dieser bisher unveröffentlichten Materialien ist im Anhang des Buches abgedruckt. Das annähernd 1100-seitige Werk bietet eine Fülle neuer Erkenntnisse. Über Laskers Kindheit und seine Familie konnten viele neue Fakten ans Tageslicht befördert werden. Harry Schaack, karlonline Bibliographische Angaben ZustandNEU. Im Originalzustand versiegelt.

Rare fourth edition of the Dutch translation of a popular work on medicinal herbs, plants, minerals etc. with recipes. It starts with the Theatrum sympateticum, divided into two parts, by the English diplomat and philosopher Kenelm Digby (1603-1665). The first contains notes on medicinal herbs and plants curing everyday ailments, the second explains how to make the "powder of sympathy", "a potion which allowed the healing of the wound by treating the weapon which caused it" (MacDonald), and includes extracts from works by Papinius and Sylvester Rattrat. The powder of sympathy could also be put on a bandage that had been in contact with the wound, without ever touching the wound. Digby's work is followed by 't Groote licht der natuurkunde by Athanasius Kircher (1602-1680), a work on magnetic forces and the influence of the moon, sun and planets on the earth. The book closes with extracts from Digby's memoirs containing recipes for "new" medicines, including mostly household and cosmetic recipes, like face powder for women and water to whiten teeth.Slightly browned, mostly in the margins, engraved title-page closely trimmed, but with no loss of the image. Binding slightly soiled. Overall in very good condition.

        Elephant Lullaby

      Poestenkill, NY: Kaldewey Press, 2013. Kaldewey, Gunnar. Oblong elephant folio. (14)ff., accordionfold. One of thirty-six copies. Printed in silver ink, with illustrations of elephants, on deep red handmade paper. The text is a poem written in Thai, and an English translation is provided on a separate sheet of paper accompanying the book. In Thailand for many centuries, rare white elephants were captured and tamed whenever they were discovered, in order to be presented to the king. In the Introduction to the book, Kaldewey explains that the elephants were presented to court in a ceremony that included music and dance. "For each of them the court poet composes a special welcoming lullaby," one of which is presented here. The lullaby compels the elephant not to miss her past in the forest, as "There is much discomfort in the forest, but bliss reigns in the city... Blame no one, for your fate as the royal elephant has been decided by Brahma himself. The gods deem you fit for His Majesty, and we will care for you as such." Bound by Thomas Zwang in traditional Thai style, with paper-covered boards stamped with the title in silver, and enclosed in a heavily-textured handmade-paper chemise. Housed in a gray paper-covered slipcase.

        EMERSON LAKE & PALMER THE SHOW THAT NEVER ENDS....ENCORE

      UK: FORULI CLASSICS, 2013 BOOK NUMBER 5 OF 50 ONLY PRODUCED IN THIS FORMATIn the early 1970s, an era of grand gestures in rock, no band could match the scale of Emerson, Lake and Palmer. Boasting an impressive pedigree in previous bands, Keith Emerson, Greg Lake and Carl Palmer were huge from the off, the ultimate progressive rock group. Their eponymous 1970 debut album mixed new band compositions with reinterpretations of classical pieces, an approach that reached its apogee with the 1973 concept album 'Brain Salad Surgery'.The band live were a spectacle like no other, with their giant quadrophonic PA and a shirtless Emerson hurling knives into his Hammond organ - but when punk happened ELP abruptly fell out of fashion, splitting in 1978. Subsequent reformations culminated in a final gig at London's High Voltage festival in celebration of the band's 40th anniversary.

Book size: 11" x 6¾". C Charles Doughty travelled on foot and rode by camel around an area the size of France, a region so desolate that it was occupied by just a few tens of thousands of people. Initially he travelled with the Haj, the sole Christian in a caravan of 6,000 Muslim pilgrims. At Madain Saleh, half-way to Mecca, he studied monuments left by the ancient Nabataean civilisation, before travelling into the desert interior alongside a Bedouin family and other nomadic groups. He reached the city of Unayzah, and finally Jeddah, in 1878. This Folio edition celebrates the masterpiece born from his journey. Doughty's odyssey was perilous in the extreme. There were long marches across harsh, rocky terrain, sometimes through the night. The sun was perilously hot, the nights cold and the winds fierce. Arriving at Madain Saleh, he finds the air fetid and the tombs bleached: 'Sultry was that midday winter sun, glancing from the sand, and stagnant the air, under the sun-beaten monuments.' Elsewhere he recalls a heat so intense that 'we seemed to breathe flames'. His health – poor even before he began his journey – was an abiding concern. What's more the Bedouin diet, with its staples of camel's milk, dates and occasional meat, was extremely lean. He observed: 'The Arabians inhabit a land of dearth and hunger, and there is no worse food than the date, which they must eat in their few irrigated valleys.' Then there were the dangers of travelling as an Englishman and a Christian through Wahabi areas, inhabited by xenophobic communities and forbidden to non-believers on pain of death. Doughty – displaying a mixture of astonishing bravery and extraordinary stubbornness – repeatedly ventured alone into areas that other Western travellers would have avoided even with a retinue of translators and guides. As Rory Stewart notes in his preface: 'Almost anyone he encountered, any time in 21 months, could have robbed and murdered him, with complete impunity.' T. E. Lawrence, acknowledging the hardships of travel in Arabia, even with 'a train of servants, good riding-beasts, tents and your own kitchen' described the 'sheer endurance' of Doughty's journey as 'wonderful'. This uncompromising, unencumbered approach to travel also brings a rare authenticity to Doughty's writing. UK Postage £3.10; Airmail to Europe £18.30; Airmail to Rest of the World £33.30.
