Item Description: Berlin, Bad Aussee, Bremen, Darmstadt, Hamburg, London, Vienna, and other places, 1918-1965., 1965. "There never was a time when Frank Thiess was not controversial", the celebration publication in honour of the writer's 60th birthday states (Frank Thiess. Werk und Dichter, p. 30). Before the National Socialists seized power in 1933, the writer had enjoyed great success with his historical novels, and his literary importance was largely undisputed. His novel "Tsushima" (1937), translated as "The Voyage of Forgotten Men", was printed in several hundred thousand copies; Hemingway even included Thiess in his 1942 anthology "Men at War". After the War, Thiess coined the term "Inner Emigration" to describe the situation of artists who, as he did, remained in Germany during the Nazi years without personally agreeing with German politics of the time. Thiess argued that this attitude was superior to that of emigrants proper such as Thomas Mann, who supposedly had watched the destruction of Germany from "balcony seats". Although most of Thiess's works were seized by the Nazis and some were even burned publicly, his decision to remain in Germany and his bitter feud with Mann proved great obstacles when he tried to regain his old position in German literature after the War. - The present partial Nachlass, from the estate of his second wife, Yvonne Thiess, sheds light on his role during the last years of Nazi Germany and the postwar years until 1965. In these roughly 500 letters and postcards to his wife, 22 years his junior, he reflects extensively upon his life and work. While he has apparently resigned himself during the War years to being unable to provide for his family, he is baffled by the problems he encounters after the War, complaining of unfair treatment, feuds with other writers, and the difficulties in joining the literary scene of postwar Germany. - Detailed list available upon request. Frank Thiess. Werk und Dichter. Ed. by R. Italiaander (Hamburg, 1950). Cf. E. Hemingway, Men at War: The Best War Stories of all Times (New York, 1942). Y.

Item Description: Semmering, Vienna, and Berlin, 1927 to 1935., 1935. Various sizes. Altogether 8¼ pp. on 7 ff. On stationery with printed letterhead. Amicable correspondence with a "dear friend", the historian Alfred Francis Pribram (1859-1942), mentioning an appointment before his departure for the U.S. (25 August 1927), recommending a young man "whose request you herewith receive" (27 February 1928), and communicating thanks from the Balog family (9 May 1928). The letter from 27 November 1928 is written after Pribram has left Vienna: "[.] There is something I dislike about your suggestion how to rectify the 'world order', that one ought to believe in reunion after death. My feeling is, whoever is no longer capable of such belief should not regret it. A few months ago I felt an impulse to make a public profession of non-faith. But why? I could not say. The result of this urge was a little book, 'The Future of an Illusion', a copy of which I have requested the publisher to send you. Not exactly for purposes of consolation, for which it is ill equipped, but because I love and esteem you as a friend. I can but give what I have [.]". - On October 28, 1829, Freud mentions his "Interpretation of Dreams": "[.] It comes as little surprise to me that your lectures are so successful. I am more amazed to learn that you are reading the 'Interpret[ation] of Dr[eams]', a difficult book which I have not touched in many years. Unfortunately I must at this very moment prepare an eighth edition and am vainly postponing the effort, ever hoping that Fortune will be kind to me in the meantime [.]". - Slight traces of handling, but well preserved on the whole.

Item Description: Various places, 1921 and 1922., 1922. 4to and 8vo. Altogether 37 pp. Very comprehensive collection of private letters written to his last love, Rose Ader (1890-1955). "Between 1921 and 1923, Puccini enjoyed what was likely his last romantic fling when he fell passionately in love with a young German soprano, Rose Ader, for whom he created the part of Liù in his final work, ‚Turandot'" (The New Grove Dictionary). "My good and sweet Rosa", Puccini wrote on April 17, 1921, on one of his earliest letters to Rose, "I am deeply moved as I write you. I would wish to be able to tell you what I have in my heart - if only you could understand! Besides the distance which separates us there is the matter of the language which prevents us from saying all that we have in our hearts - what good fortune that I should have met you and what misfortune not to be able to speak together! I would have such riches in expression with which to express my great love! A love which will be with me all my life - you cannot imagine what an impression you made on me! Your languid eyes which when they looked at me strike my heart as though to seek an echo of an immense affection. I shall never be able to forge you - my Rosa what will happen to me. How can I bear being so far away. Yet it is necessary to suffer and to wait. Life is all one waiting and one suffering! Study, study, I beg you on my knees. Study with ardor and feverishly a little of my language. I believe that guided by the love that you have for me you will soon succeed in understanding me. That day will be one of the most beautiful ones of our life. Write to me even in German. I shall have your letter translated. If with the help of Mrs. S. you wish to write in French I shall not let the eyes of a stranger see your letter. I shall write you every week and even more often than that. How clearly I write! Never have I written in this manner - for you, my joy, I do everything [.]" (transl. from the Italian original). - Accompanied by 3 telegrams. Bookseller Inventory # 34075

Item Description: 1923. "EINSTEIN, Albert. Autograph postcard signed with original sketches. Near Jerusalem, circa February 5, 1923. Postcard illustrated with a rendering of the Red Star Liner Belgenland, measuring 5-1/2 by 3-1/2 inches, with two sketches by Einstein on the recto and autograph letter by Einstein in German (along with an autograph letter by his traveling companion) on the verso. $49,000.Extremely rare autograph postcard signed written by Einstein during his visit to Palestine—one of only a couple manuscript items from this visit known to exist—featuring a very rare self-portrait sketch by Einstein as well as a sketch of the traveling companion he mentions in his letter. Letter in German.Einstein writes to noted Zionist Arthur Ruppin in full (translated from German): "To my dear Mr. Ruppin, We are having unforgettable days in Palestine. With the sun shining, in cheerful company. Your wife is standing next to me and looking at what I am writing about her. She is counting the days until you come back. Yours, A. Einstein." (At the time, Ruppin had been on an extended fundraising trip in the United States, see: Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle, December 15, 1922.) Above his note, Hanna Ruppin also writes her husband (translated): "Dear Arthur, A pleasant tour of the city. Included is a picture by Prof. Einstein. Warm greetings, Hanna." True to her word, on the recto, Einstein had drawn a diminutive self-portrait (signed below) together with a rendering of "Frau Ruppin." Above the drawings, he added the words, "Jerusalem," "Heiligenschein" (or "halo") with an arrow pointing to the halo-like marks over his self-portrait's head. Einstein's depiction of himself as a rotund, almost comical figure stands in contrast to the elegantly-dressed "Frau Ruppin" with her stylish hat, shapely figure and umbrella. A newly minted celebrity following the reception of the 1921 Nobel Prize for physics, Einstein was on his return to Europe following a six-month lecture tour that took him as far as Japan in late 1922. He returned to Europe via Sri Lanka and the Suez Canal, stopping at Port Said on February 1, 1923 for two weeks in Palestine. Einstein made the stop at the invitation of Arthur Ruppin (1876-1943), an early Zionist thinker and leader. Academically trained in Germany in economics and law, Ruppin was awarded the Krupp prize in 1899 for his dissertation on Darwinism and industry. He joined the Zionist Organization in 1905 and acted as a land agent to purchase land in Palestine in order to facilitate the migration of European Jews. From 1933 to 1935, he headed the Jewish Agency which assisted German Jews fleeing Nazi persecution in settling in Palestine. At the time of Einstein's visit to Palestine, Ruppin was on an extended fundraising tour in the United States (Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle, December 15, 1922, p. 10). From Port Said, Einstein boarded a train for Jerusalem, where he was greeted not unlike a visiting head of state in light of his of recent scientific achievements, as well as his support of the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine. The first night, Einstein was the guest of an aide to the British High Commissioner for the Palestinian Mandate and he spent the next two days informally touring the Old City, as well as taking a trip to the Dead Sea via Jericho. February 5th marked the first day of his official tour organized by the Zionists. Writing in his travel diary, he recorded (translated): "Tour of two Jewish colonial settlements west of Jerusalem, belonging to the city. The construction is carried out by Jewish workers' cooperative in which the leaders are elected. The workers arrive without specialized knowledge or expertise and achieve excellence after a short time. The leaders are paid no more than the workers." According to corresponding sources, Einstein's first visit that morning was to the suburb of Beth Hakerem, in the west of Jerusalem, accompanied by Hanna Ruppin, together with Hadassah Samuel and Solomon Ginzburg.

Item Description: Probably Villeneuve, 1955 to 1957., 1957. 8vo and oblong 8vo. Altogether 8 pp. on 5 ff. With 4 autogr. envelopes. Intimate, longing missives to Antonia Mangelmann, probably a former model or student of Kokoschka's at his Salzburg Summer Academy: "You have proven to me a dedication, truly limitless for a mother, in this, your possibly finest letter; do not be angry if the Swan proves human in his desire to embrace you in thanks for all that you keep so close to my imagination that I was overjoyed all day, so very happy. How sweet are your two hearts, and how beautiful your two bodies, such harmony of earthly forms and divine souls was known only to Greek antiquity, and I confess frankly that I return to Salzburg on your behalf alone. To have to leave such wonderful sweetness! for soon I shall have to die, a fate which I find it hard to get used to! That there shall be a wall between the three of us, that the world of shadows shall remove me forever, while you and Inge strew like buds your charm and love beneath the sky, in the light of day and the star's nightly gleam, this hurts me as my love hurts me but still keeps alive / your Oskar" (translation). The reverse of this undated letter shows a sketch of three embracing persons, inscribed "for dear Antonia / variation on our theme / by OK". The persons depicted are apparently Antonia, her daughter Inge, and Kokoschka himself. - All letters with printed letterhead. Includes 11 pp. of responding letters. Bookseller Inventory # 45174

Item Description: NY: Folkways Records, [1950]., 1950. 33rpm record. The record jacket bears Dylan's pencil ownership signature as well as some lyrics from the album that Dylan has transcribed on the front cover. The LP was issued with a postcard that customers could fill out and return requesting additional products. Dylan has filled out this card listing his name as "Bob Dylan c/o Kevin Krown" (Krown was a close early friend of Dylan and his first manager). He writes Krown's address "56 Lawrence Ave. Malverne, NY," (since Dylan didn't have a permanent address of his own at this time) and for product information he's written "Darling Corey #2003," and in the space for remarks he's written "send booklet." A remarkable artifact showing Dylan's early influences and his enthusiasm for folk music before becoming famous himself. In Chronicles Dylan talks about how much he was affected by the music he was exposed to after arriving in N.Y.C. and listening to the record collections of his friends. Provenance: Kevin Krown, with a small piece of cloth tape with his initials to the front cover. Dylan autograph material of this vintage is exceptionally rare, but more importantly this item came directly from Dylan's personal life at this crucial period before his first record, rather than simply being something signed at someone's request. This item comes with a letter of authentication from certified forensics examiner James Blanco (formerly of the US Treasury Dept.) who compared it to over 100 known examples of Dylan's writing from this period. The record jacket has a crease to the bottom corner---the card is fine. Housed in a lovely clamshell box with a recessed compartment for the card. Bookseller Inventory # SKB-13479

Item Description: Various places, 1885-1907., 1907. Various formats. 182 pp. Collection of correspondence from the Nachlass of Katharina Schratt, providing a panorama of the acquaintances and society of the actress who was introduced to the court as reader to Empress Elisabeth and later gained fame as Franz Josef's mistress and confidante. Although the entire material dates from the years when her relationship to the Emperor was popular knowledge, there are naturally no explicit references to this connection in any of the letters. Similarly, we can only speculate about the nature of Miss Schratt's gift to Johann Strauß: "To be thus honoured by your kindness is more than I have deserved. I beg to say my most heartfelt thanks. Please rest assured that this support which I have received from you will accompany me on all my paths and I will always honour it as a precious good [.]" (J. Strauß, ALS, 2 pp. Vienna, 25 Dec. 1894). The letter by Hans von Wilczek to the Emperor's mistress is of especial interest, as it contains indications of her close relationship to the great Austrian explorer: "[.] I stay away from Vienna as much as possible - but when I arrived at Herrengasse at 11 last night my doorman told me that you had called at half past 10. But I did not want to call back, it already being 11 - I beg forgiveness and - don't be angry with me! Is there anything I can do? [.]". - We also learn that the popular poet Adam Müller-Guttenbrunn had written a comedy just for her, "Die lächelnde Gräfin" ("The Smiling Countess"): [.] Naturally I would be prepared to fulfil any request regarding the title role. Also, the Countess's court need not be Vienna. That way we might even get it performed at the Burgtheater. Nobody has seen the play's ms., nobody knows it exists, it entered your hands quite virginal [.]" (2 June 1905). - Her colleague Helene Odilon, one of the greatest actresses of her age, who after suffering a stroke in 1903 was put under tutelage by her grasping relatives, writes a touching plea for help: "My desperation made me think of appealing to you, my dear lady, to help me achive my human rights. I beseech you to save me! Save me - I bessech you. My physical and mental sufferings have gone on too long. As my physical condition improved, the emotional torture of tutelage grew and torments me and today is a spectre that haunts me like death [.]" (25 Dec. 1906, 6 pp.). - The collection is topped off by several ephemera from Schratt's possession, including invoices, invitations, and a bill of exchange for 170 florins, written by herself.

Vous avez bien raison de dire 'en goûter la rondeur plûtot que le travers' - car je crois que sans ce gout de la vie que vous avez (gout de 'pommes vertes') il serait impossible de faire de beaux vers. J'ai spécialement aimé 'la vielle son miroir', puis le magnifique 'je pense aux tiroirs des poètes' et le 'jeune homme preux'. Merci encore une fois pour ce charmant cadeau. J'ai bien l'intention de venir en Belgique cet automne - et ce sera un grand plaisir que de vous revoir [.]". - In "Nestorstr. 22", as Nabokov writes in the return address, he and his family was living from 1932 to 1937. - Early Nabokov letters such as the present example are exceedingly rare.

Journal of an invalid in pursuit of: WALKER, Saunderson].

Item Description: An extremely detailed journal of a voyage to the Ottoman Empire in the 325 ton brig Macleod and of the writer's adventures ashore in numerous cities there and in the Middle East, averaging about 3 pages per day, but with much more at the most interesting sights. It was written by Saunderson Walker after his return to England, clearly based on a journal kept during the voyage.After a brief introduction with background information and an account of the preparations, the present journal records his departure on 22 October 1839 and gives a daily log of the voyage and the islands on the way from England to Constantinople, where he arrived on 23 November. He devotes about sixty pages to the city and its surroundings before setting off for Smyrna (Izmir) on the steamer Stambool. After about 45 pages on Smyrna he set off again, visiting Rhodes, Cyprus, Beirut, Palestine, Egypt, then back to Smyrna and Constantinople for another long stay. After an excursion through the Black Sea to Odessa and back he set off for home, departing on 21 February 1840 and arriving in Falmouth on 19 April. Walker gives very detailed descriptions of sights, events and people, visiting the bazars, the Seraglio, mosques, baths, dances and religious ceremonies. He ventured beyond the usual tourist sights, however. Coming from a shipping family he arranged to view the Ottoman and Egyptian fleets.The inserted steel engravings are foxed and a few leaves of the manuscript have browned patches, but it is otherwise in very good condition. The binding is worn at the hinges and has some surface cracks in the spine, but is otherwise also very good. A very extensive and remarkably detailed picture of life in the Ottoman Empire in 1839/40.

Item Description: A large collection of correspondence to and from prison camps during the two World Wars, representing a broad spectrum of locations, nationalities, and circumstances. 143 empty covers, 86 letters (most covers as well), and 174 postcards, along with a few dozen assorted package slips, labels, and other ephemera. All housed in three fine cloth clamshell boxes, backed in navy morocco gilt-ruled, and with red morocco labels. The majority of the material in this collection belongs to POWs of WWII, but there is a large subsection on WWI POWs and a number of items from interned political prisoners and Jews. All items in very good condition overall, with the very occasional tear or stain. Of special interest are letters from the camps of Gross-Rosen, Buchenwald, Dachau and Auschwitz, covers addressed to POWs in South East Asia, letters and postcards with parts excised by sensors, and the various cancels and other stamps from over 2 dozen camps throughout the two World Wars. A more complete inventory is available upon request. Throughout both WWI and WWII mail continued to flow freely to and from prison camps. Parcels were heavily censored and delayed to prevent espionage, and the frequency and degree to which prisoners could send or receive any communication varied from camp to camp. In many cases these short letters were the last contact the prisoner might ever have with loved ones before succumbing to illness, neglect, or violence. Bookseller Inventory # 50145

Item Description: 1908. with the printed caption "Lieutenant Shackleton, Arctic Explorer 1908 nearest the South Pole", showing him in his arctic uniform with fun gloves, standing in the snow with another of the team struggling with a sledge behind him, 5½" x 3½", no place, no date, but South Pole, slightly worn After being invalided home in the relief ship Morning in 1903, Shackleton left the sea as a profession and took up various engagements, each of which he soon abandoned. From 1904 to 1905 he was secretary of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society. He stood unsuccessfully for parliament as liberal-unionist candidate at Dundee in January 1906 and entered Messrs. W. Beardmore's engineering works in Glasgow, but was already busy planning to return to the Antarctic. One of his main objects was to reach the South Pole, but he also wanted to explore the Barrier. Shackleton sailed in the small whaler Nimrod in August 1907, and reached the Ross barrier in the following January. Forced by pack ice to abandon his intention to land on King Edward Land, he made his base in McMurdo Sound, and accompanied by Dr. Eric Marshall, Lieutenant Jameson Boyd Adams, R.N.R., and Frank Wild, R.N., by way of the Barrier and the Beardmore glacier, which he discovered, succeeded in reaching lat. 88° 23¢ S. on the Antarctic plateau (9 January 1909). The expedition also sent a party under Professor (Sir) T. W. Edgeworth David to the South Magnetic Pole, which was reached 16 January 1909, and another to the summit of Mount Erebus (13,200 ft.), which was gained 10 March 1908. On his return in March 1909 Shackleton was the hero of the hour and enjoyed to the full his well-merited popularity. He received the C.V.O. and a knighthood, was elected a younger brother of Trinity House. Parliament voted £20,000 to defray the liabilities of the expedition, and Shackleton paid other costs by a prolonged lecturing tour in Europe and America. The expedition is described in his The Heart of the Antarctic (1909). The "Great Southern Journey", as Frank Wild called it, began on 29th October 1908. On 9th January 1909, Shackleton and three companions (Wild, Eric Marshall and Jameson Adams) reached a new Farthest South latitude of 88° 23' S, a point only 112 miles (180 km) from the Pole.
