Gispen, Kees.
Poems in Steel: National Socialism and the Politics of Inventing from Weimar to Bonn.
New York, Berghahn, 2002. BRAND NEW. Virgin copy, not yet traded. 8vo. Pp. xvi, 357. With 6 tables and text figures; notes, list of works cited, index. Hardcover, green cloth lettered in silver, without dust-jacket as issued. ISBN: 15718124231571812423
¶ ~ First edition. Examines the relationship between technology and society in Nazi Germany. The role of National Socialism in the development of German society remains a central question of historical inquiry. This study presents original answers by examining the politics of inventing, a crucial but long ignored problem at the intersection of the history of technology, legal, political, and business history. The analysis of conflicts over the rights of inventors and the meaning of inventing from the 1920s to the 1950s reveals a deep chasm, reaching back to the late nineteenth century, between the forces of capital and big business on one hand and the exponents of intellectual capital - inventors, engineers, industrial scientists - on the other. A volume in the Monographs in German History Series.

¶ ~ First edition. Beautifully illustrated. ~ Présentation de l'éditeur: 'Cet ouvrage ressuscite le passé roman du Pays de Liège, du Xe au XIIe siècle, à travers l'histoire, l'art, la culture et la civilisation, et procure l'indispensable vade-mecum de ce que tout Liégeois désire connaître et assimiler pour le faire partager à l'extérieur. Il est le fruit d'une collaboration intense et assidue entre le Trésor de la Cathédrale de Liège, l'Université de Liège et leurs contacts extérieurs. Depuis 1991, la publication de la série des Feuillets de la Cathédrale de Liège multiplie les études spécialisées en liaison avec le patrimoine artistique de la cathédrale. Par ce volume, aujourd'hui, le Trésor s'engage dans une orientation plus marquée encore à la découverte de la Principauté de Liège, soutenu par la Province de Liège, son héritière. Rénové à l'initiative du Chapitre cathédral pour commémorer le treizième centenaire de la mort de saint Lambert (1996), en collaboration avec la Région wallonne et la Commission Royale des Monuments & Sites, le Trésor de la Cathédrale de Liège présente au public depuis septembre 1998 un parcours muséal d'art et d'histoire de l'ancienne Principauté de Liège. Conservation, restauration et exposition des oeuvres d'art marchent de concert avec recherche scientifique.'

Moia, Nelly.
Für die Katz'. [TWO VOLUMES].
N.p., For the Author, Imprimerie Centrale S.A., 1999. Two volumes. I. Text Volume. Crown quarto. Pp. 533, b&w illustrations; II. Plate Volume. Tall quarto. Unpaginated. A photographic album, lavishly illustrated in colour. Both volumes bound in pictorial stiff wrappers and placed in the original hardcover portfolio, with a matching image on cover. In new condition. Excellent set, practically unused. ISBN: 2879780136
¶ ~ First edition. 'Im Gegensatz zum Titel haben wir es hier nicht mit einem 'Katzenbuch' zu tun, sondern mit einem luxemburger Naturführer besonderer Art. Wenn der Titel sich durch eine eher realistisch-pessimistische Atmosphäre des Textbandes erklären lässt, so zeugt der Bildband davon, dass die Autorin doch selber nicht so recht glaubt, dass alles 'für die Katz' gewesen war. Der Textband veranschaulicht anhand von Pressenotizen (Leserbriefen, oft von der Autorin selbst) mehrere Jahrzehnte Tauziehen zwischen Natur- und Umweltschutzbegeisterten und den übrigen politischen und gesellschaftlichen Strukturen. Er erörtert verpasste (und in Zukunft noch zu verpassende) Gelegenheiten, das Spiessbürgertum und sonstiges materialistisches Denken in punkto hautnaher Umwelt etwas zu dämpfen. Für die an diesem Geschehen unfreiwillig beteiligten Militanten ein Denkstein, für andere (hoffentlich) ein Denkanstoss (...) Der Bildband, in der Form eines gedruckten Fotoalbums, zeigt Natur, vor allem in der Escher Gegend und im 'Minett'. Interessant sind vergleichende Aufnahmen von Tagebaugebieten in bis zu 20-jährigem Intervall, welche den Verbuschungsprozess dokumentieren.' - Haus vun der Natur, Kockelscheuer.
