Schöne und seltene Bücher des 15. bis 20. Jahrhunderts


Marx, Karl. Das Kapital. Kritik der politischen Oekonomie. Erster Band. Hamburg: Otto Meissner, 1867. Octavo, pp. XII, 784. Original printed yellow wrappers, spine and front wrapper lettered in black, preserved in a custom made cloth box.
Front wrapper stamped „Recensionsexemplar“. Printed slip loosely inserted. Front wrapper chipped and soiled, with old tape repairs lifted, now restored with archival tissue, most of the original printed spine preserved under archival tissue, the rear printed wrapper missing, the final text leaf with old tape repairs removed and restored. Internally a good, clean, uncut copy, corners a little dog eared, some chipped away, with minimal spotting and edge toning; a remarkable survival.
First edition, review copy, stamped „Recensionsexemplar“ on the upper wrapper, and with a printed slip completed in manuscript, dated 16 September 1867, two days after publication, inviting the publisher of the Leipzig periodical Die Grenzboten: Zeitschrift für Politik und Literature, to publish a review.
Hailed as one of „the most influential pieces of writing in world history“ (International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam), Das Kapital was the culmination of Marx’s many years’ work in the British Museum. This first volume, printed in 1000 copies, was the only one published during Marx’s lifetime.
Loosely inserted into this copy is a printed form issued by the publisher Otto Meissner, completed by hand in ink, with a note written on the blank verso, which reads:
„Beifolgend beehre ich mich, Ihnen unten verzeichnetes Werk zur gefälligen Besprechung gratis zu übersenden, mit dem Ersuchen, mir die betreffende Recension baldigst zugehen lassen zu wollen.
Hamburg, 16/9/67
Otto Meissner.“
Die Erstdrucke der Werke von Marx und Engels, p. 32; Printing and the Mind of Man 359; Rubel 633.

Fleming, Ian. Archive of his correspondence with Edith von Morpurgo, an Austrian girlfriend. London: 1934–35. Together 11 items: three 4-page autograph letters in ink signed Ian, one 2-page typed letter with autograph postscript in ink signed Ian, two 4-page autograph letters in pencil signed Ian, two pencilled notes in Fleming’s autograph, one telegraph form with letter in pencil from „Ian“, all in German, one photograph of Fleming seated in Austrian mountain scenery in climbing boots and shorts, retrospectively captioned in Edith’s hand „Der Vater von James Bond 007, ein Freund 1934 in Österr[eich]“. One letter evidently angrily torn into pieces by the recipient, later restored with cellophane tape.
A fine correspondence revealing the typically tempestuous relationship between the young Fleming and his Austrian girlfriend, Edith Maria Thonet (née von Morpurgo) (1904–1988). Her father was the aristocratic Viennese architect, Robert Guido Elio Freiherr von Morpurgo (1872–1941); her mother was the actress Lucie Laval Nikolovsky. Fleming’s nickname for her in these letters, „Oberstadtdeppin“ („High class ninny“), lightly mocks that aristocratic background. – The letters range from short notes arranging dates or simply sending kisses („Ich küsse Dich XX“), sometimes with illustrations showing exactly where he would like to kiss her. According to Edith’s family, she and Fleming seriously discussed marriage. In later life she considered that Fleming had been the only man she ever truly loved and regretted having sent his letters back to him. We are indebted to Edith’s relative Helmut Morpurgo for kindly sharing with us personal information concerning the history behind this correspondence.

Joyce, James. Ulysses. Vom Verfasser geprüfte deutsche Ausgabe von Georg Goyert. Basel: Privatdruck, 1927. 3 volumes, octavo. Original brown quarter morocco, olive green morocco labels, marbled paper sides, top edges gilt others untrimmed. Tips very lightly rubbed otherwise an excellent set.
First German edition, number 174 of 1,000 copies, this one of an unspecified number bound in quarter morocco; it is the first foreign language edition of Ulysses. – With a most interesting provenance: each volume bearing the attractive etched bookplate of the distinguished Berlin banker Hans Arnhold (1888–1966) and his wife Ludmilla (1894–1976). In the late 1920s, the Arnhold home served as an important salon for Berlin artists, musicians, intellectuals, and members of Weimar cultural life, as well as some of Berlin’s most prominent bankers. – Slocum & Cahoon D45 (2).
