New Year's is traditionally a time to look forward, and also to reflect on the past. In the spirit of the holiday, we would like to highlight four calendars, from very different time periods: A 1969 wall calendar commemorating the African American Civil Rights Movement with bold prints, a calendar of color woodcut illustrations published by the leading art journal of the Vienna Secession in 1903, an ornate Renaissance-inspired Italian calendar from 1899 accompanied by the original pen and watercolor drawings, and a luxurious embroidered almanack from 1792 small enough to be tucked in one's pocket.

Über das Sammeln von Autographen

Karl Geigy-Hagenbach (who later owned Geigy Industries, now Ciba Geigy) was a close friend to Stefan Zweig, and, like his friend, he was a famous collector of autographs. Born 1865 in Switzerland, Geigy-Hagenbach started collecting in his early years. Rarities from all fields of interest: history, science, literature, music and art.
