Jena: Verlag von Gustave Fischer 1913, 1913. First edition. 8vo. 255x175mm. pp. viii, 327. 19 plates each with four black and white photographs. 22 family trees (lacking number 11) inserted into a flap at the rear of the book. Original blue cloth lettered in navy blue on upper cover and spine. Lower cover has bookbinder's stamp of Julius Hager, Leipzig.

Attractive art nouveau endpapers. Title page has a non-authorial inscription dated October 1913 and the label of Thomas Prahl Andresen. This controversial (to put it mildly) book was the fruit of Fischer's field research in German South West Africa (now Namibia) in the early 20th century. It is a study of the Basters, offspring of German or Boer men who had fathered children by the native women (Hottentots) in that area. His study concluded with a call to prevent a "mixed rac ...

Photographies

BANIER François-Marie

  • Quantity available: 1
Paris: Gallimard/Denoël 1991, 1991. First edition. 330x255mm. Unpaginated. 150 black and white photographs and 29 pages of text in English and French including a series of observations by Banier entitled "La Vie de la photo". Original boards with black and white photographic illustration to the upper and lower covers. Lettered in black to the upper cover and spine. Original dust jacket with the same photographs and design as the covers. Protected by a transparent plastic wrapper lettered in black. The cover and dust-jacket and wrapper are fine. The contents are fine. There is also a black and white photograph of an unidentified young girl loosely inserted. Whether this is by Banier is unclear.

Dusseldorf: Selbstverlag (self-published) 1917, 1917. 226 x 150 mm. pp. [viii], 124. Illustrated with 130 (in fact 131) images mostly showing tatting patterns. Text in German. Original grey/brown paper over boards, spine in brown leather. Upper cover lettered in black and white with tatting illustration attached. Some slight scuffing to lower cover and bumping to foot of spine but overall a very good copy, internally near fine. Tatting seems to involve knotting together pieces of thread to make allegedly eye-like patterns which, together produce moderately pretty but completely useless items of decoration. Indulging in this as a hobby is, it would seem, an example of "demonstrative idleness". Apparently it is popular again. This is a nice copy of a book on an unfathomable subject.

Leipzig und Wien: Franz Deuticke 1905, 1905. First edition. Large 8vo. (238x150mm). pp. [ii], 84. Uncut. Original blue-grey paper wrappers, lettered in black on front and rear wrapper. Slight shelf wear, some restoration to spine. An excellent copy. One of the foundation texts of the twentieth century. Along with his first book, The Interpretation of Dreams, the lectures on Pyscho-Analysis and the late Civilization and its Discontents, this text changed forever our conception of the child. No longer Rousseau's innocent child of Nature, he or she became a mass of unfocussed and unspecified sexuality which needed to be socially conditioned. A major cultural document.
