        Almanaque de la Revolución Española. P.O.U.M.

      Spain: Grafos, Colectivizada, 1937 - Folio (470 x 270 mm). Two hole punches at top, red hanging cord. Old dampstain causing slight discolouration at head of images, "May" slightly frayed at bottom edge, otherwise in very good condition. Coloured lithograph cover (reproducing the design for March) and 12 similar images by "Sim"; with descriptive letterpress for each month in Spanish, French and English. Rare Republican calendar from the Spanish Civil War, the images striking and the colour fresh and bright: Copac cites only the copy at the V&A among British and Irish institutional libraries; no location recorded by OCLC or KVK, not in the extensive Southworth Spanish Civil War Collection at UC San Diego or the Biblioteca del Pavelló de la República of the University of Barcelona. The calendar's rarity may be accounted for by the fact that each month is separated by a perforation from its accompanying illustration, so that the lithograph could be detached and kept. It was issued by POUM (Partido Obrero de Unificación Marxista), the Workers' Party of Marxist Unification, forever connected with the name of George Orwell and Homage to Catalonia. The Southworth Collection has a poster - for Setmana de l'infant (Week of the Child), issued in 1936 - designed by "Sim", a pseudonym "used by the painter [José Luis] Rey Vila [1900-1983]. He received his artistic training in the Escuela de Bellas Artes in Barcelona. An unsigned text in an album of images which he executed during the war (12 Escenas de Guerra) states that during his military service in the Spanish territories in northern Africa, which coincided with the defeat of the Spanish troops at Annual (July 21, 1921), Sim 'became aware of the moral turpitude of politicians and of the military, and he became a firm defender of the people. For that reason, his drawings have an improvisational character, agile and nervous, emotional and revolutionary.' In the first months of the war, Sim arrived at the headquarters of the artists' trade-union in Catalonia, the Sindicat de Dibuixants Professionals, 'with an album of drawings under his arm' which he offered for publication (this album is probably Estampas de la Revolución Espa§ola, 19 de Julio de 1936). Sim was refused, partly because drawings were not seen as adequate means of propaganda, and also because he lacked personal references, an important liability in a climate of intense suspicion caused by the war. This poster [for Week of the Child] is evidence that Sim found other means to collaborate with the war effort, working for the Generalitat (publisher of this poster), and also for anarchist organizations (the aforementioned album Estampas de la Revolución Española was published by the Spanish Anarchist Party, FAI, and by the CNT)". "Sim" was the focus of a recent exhibition and conference at the Biblioteca del Pavelló de la República of the University of Barcelona, who possess a copy of a 1938 calendar with his designs. A conspicuous survival and a memorable record of the Republican cause during the Spanish Civil War.

        The Sino-Japanese Hostilities 1937, [together with;] The Sino-Japanese Hostilities Shanghai 1937. Index.

      Shanghai & Wei-Hai-Wei: Ah Fong Photographer, 819 Nanking Road, Aug.?Nov., 1937. 2 volumes (album & index), landscape octavo. Original black sand-grained cloth cord-backed binder, red silk tie, large gilt block to the front board showing Shanghai under assault by Japanese 'planes, ships and tanks, large images of bombs and shells superimposed on the silhouette of the skyline of the Bund; the 12-page index, stitched in printed grey wraps, lettered in black on the front panel. The first with 201 tipped-in silver gelatin photos, all numbered in white ink above the image keyed to the printed index, frontispiece photo (88 x 127 mm) of dead and burned soldiers is unlisted in the index, nearly all of the rest are 63 x 83 mm, a number of night scenes colour-tinted in vivid red, two panoramic photos, one in red, sized 83 x 203 mm. Album slightly rubbed, and with minor edge-wear, remains very good; the front panel of the wraps to the index has a soft crease, minor toning to fore-edges, and the ownership inscription of "J. D. Willmouth, Shanghai, China, August, 1937 - January, 1938" to the front panel. First edition of the complete set of 200 silver gelatin photographs issued by the Ah Fong Photography Studio, recording the brutal siege and conquest of Shanghai by the Japanese at the opening of the Second Sino-Japanese War. Japan's failure to defeat China in this war became the key dynamic for what happened in Asia during the Second World War. In his award-winning study of the conflict - China's War with Japan, 1937-1945: The Struggle for Survival (2013) - Rana Mitter, Professor of the History and Politics of Modern China at the Institute for Chinese Studies at Oxford, refers to the Battle of Shanghai as turning "China's most open, lively and cosmopolitan centre... into a charnel house". Extremely uncommon, OCLC records a copy with just 100 prints at Cornell, and another similar in the National Library of Australia, IWM have listings for three copies within individual archives, but none with an image count, the presence of the folded index mounted inside the front boards, rather than the loosely inserted stitched index as here, suggesting that they are copies of the shorter version. BL has a copy of the 200-item index in the India Office Collection. Following the First Sino-Japanese War (1894-5) in which Japan had conquered and absorbed Manchuria into their empire, hostilities had sporadically flared and intensified in the region. After a number of provocations in the summer of 1937 Chiang Kai-shek's nationalist forces joined with the warlords of Hunan and Szechwan provinces to fight the Japanese. Chiang believed that attacks on Japanese naval installations and troops in and around Shanghai would force the hand of foreign powers to ally with China in the fight against Japan to protect their investments in southern China. The Nationalist Chinese managed to hold out for three months against ferocious bombardment by the Japanese from 'planes based in Taiwan, and ships on the Huangpu River. These attacks inflicted terrible casualties on the Chinese, eventually forcing them to retreat from Shanghai to Nanking under constant attack from Japanese reinforcements. The sometimes shockingly brutal images gathered here include a panorama of the Bund with the USS Augusta and HMS Cumberland in port evacuating foreign nationals, the burning of Chapei in October, 1937, Japanese Marines in action, casualties from the Pantheon Theatre, Chinese troops in combat with tanks, cremated bodies, corpses floating downstream, Chinese snipers, bombing on Paoshan Road, Markham Road, the burning of Chapei, Pootung, and Kiangwan, Japanese heavy bombers, Red Cross transporting the wounded, American Marines, the Japanese "Victory March" through the International Concession with the photos taken outside of the British Consulate. The Ah Fong studio was established in Hong Kong in 1859 by Lai Afong, a commercial photographer who was trained by early western photographers in China. "The most significant Chinese photographer of the nineteenth century" (Terry Bennett in Hannay, Encyclopedia of Nineteenth Century Photography (p.815) Afong subsequently opened studios in Canton, Shanghai, and Wei-Hai-Wei, "gaining his success mainly in western community residing or travelling in China" (Shi Chen, Early Chinese Photographers from 1840 to 1870, University of Florida, 2009, p.7). It seems that the studio maintained its reputation when his son took over around the turn of the century. An excellent copy of this extremely elusive and historically important publication.

Realizing my complete ignorance, I refused to have anything to do with the scenario of my own novel ... To be quite honest, if it lay in my power to write scenarios I would not be able to do one about Doctor Long, because these days there are not enough hours in the twenty-four for me to attend to all the pressing business matters, foreign contracts, mail, editors et cetera which crowd in upon me. I have often wondered during this last strange year how any writer who produces a successful first novel ever finds time to write a second one!""Ironically, Mitchell never did publish a second book. She was struck by a speeding car as she crossed a street on her way to see the British film, ""A Canterbury Tale"" in August of 1949. She died five days later from her injuries without regaining consciousness. "
