      8°, 40 pp. text in green colour with illustrations within text, original illustrated wrappers, stapled (Very Good, wrappers slightly stained, soft folds in margins). - Kaunas, Lithuania: Lithova &#150; Esperanto Asocio 1939. A very rare book of Lithuanian folk songs, translated to Esperanto, was published in Kaunas on the eve of the Soviet occupation of Lithuania, and in the last year of the Lithuanian Esperanto Association before WWII. - A book includes 32 Lithuanian songs, translated to Esperanto, printed in dark green colour and accompanied with Lithuanian folk art vignettes in mature art deco style. Kaunas, the second largest city in Lithuania, was for a while a home of Ludwik Lejzer Zamenhof, the inventor of Esperanto, and therefor one oft he first centers, where the language developed. The first Esperanto association in Lithuania was founded in Vilnius, already in 1892, and the first Esperanto magazine Litova Stelo (Lithuanian Star), was published in one issue in 1914. The association together with the magazine was revived after WWI and was active until WWII, when the language was forbidden by the Nazi Germany. Petras Lapiené, the editor of our book, was the the last editor of the Esperanto magazine until 1940, a year when the Soviet Union occupied and annexed Lithuania. The following year Nazi Germany invaded Lithuania and Esperanto was forbidden. These pre WWII Lithuanian Esperanto books are today quite rare. First they, like this work, tended to be issued in very small quantities. Second, most of these examples would have been destroyed during the war, as they were looked upon with disfavour by both the occupying Soviet and Nazi regimes. The book was printed in 1000 examples. Today we could only trace 2 examples in libraries worldwide (Austrian National Library and Bibliotheek UvA/HvA, Amsterdam).

      Photolothoraphy in sepia after original drawing (Very Good, tiny tears on crossings of the folds, two original labels in the corner of the map, off-set in the left part of the map) 90,5 x 144 cm (35.6 x 56.7 inches). - [Naples] Consiglio Provinciale delle Corporazioni di Napoli, Centro Studi [between 1939- 1940]. A large wall map of Naples, made by an office of the National Fascist Party on the eve of the Second World War, shows the newest achievements of the 1930s Italian urbanism. - A large format wall map of Naples, made on the eve of the WWII in Art Deco style, was made for the purposes of the government office in Naples (Consiglio Provinciale delle Corporazioni / Provincial Council of Corporations). The historicaly important monuments and the newly build achievements of the Fascist architecture are shown from bird&#146;s eye view. Among the latest constructed buildings is the Palazzo del Banco di Napoli, set into Palazzo San Giacomo, constructed between 1939 and 1940, and based on the plans of an Italian urban theorist and one of the main proponents of Italian Fascist architecture Marcello Piacentini (1881 -1960). The square in front of the palace opens directly onto the Maritime Station of Naples, built in Art Deco Style in 1936 by the plans of Cesare Bazzani (1873-1939). The large post office or Palazzo delle Poste, one block north of the Palazzo del Banco di Napoli was influenced by the Rationalist style and was finished in 1936 after plans by Giuseppe Vaccaro and Gino Franzi. South of the post office the impressive building Palazzo della Casa del Mutilato (Palace of the House of the Mutilated), erected between 1939-1940 was one of the last Fascist palaces built in the city before WWII, and so was Palazzo della Questura (Police Headquarters) standing on its east side. The city started building the latter already in 1935, but the opening was delayed for a year from 1939 to 1940, because inability to obtain iron building materials, due to the re-arming of the country, and international embargoes. Stadio Partenope, a large football stadium shown in the upper right part of the map, was constructed between August 1929 and April 1930 as Stadio Vesuvio, financed by the famous industrialist and first president of Napoli football club Giorgio Ascarelli, who died at the age of 36 only seventeen days after the opening of the stadium. The object was renamed after Ascarelli in that year and bore that name until the World Cup of 1934, when it became one of the eight stadiums hosting the cup. The Ascarelli&#146;s name was then erased because of his Jewish background and the new name was composed in the Fascistic style of reviving the Ancient Roman Empire: Stadio Partenope (Parthenope was an ancient Greek settlement on the coast in the center of today&#146;s Neapel). Naples 1939-1940 - This map was made for Consiglio Provinciale delle Corporazioni - Centro Studi per il Mezzogiorno (Provincial Council of Corporations &#150; Central office for South Italy). Consiglio Provinciale delle Corporazioni was founded in 1937 and closed in 1944. The organisation included banks and insurance companies, the provincial union of professionals and artists, and was directly subordinated to the National Fascist Party. The label in the corner states it is forbidden to re-print the map, sell it or bring it outside the office. The map can be not be dated before 1939, when the city started with the construction of Palazzo del Banco di Napoli and Palazzo della Casa del Mutilato, already marked as built on the map, and probably could not be made much after June 1940, when Italy entered WWII, and the aesthetics of the urbanism planning and architectural design of Naples was not on the priority list of the city office. Because of rationing, when entering the war, Naples stopped many building projects. Already in 1939 the opening of the new police HQ was delayed for a year because of this reason. The first air raids on Naples by the Royal Air Force from a Malta base started already in the early morning hours of November 1st 1940 and hit the targets in the port and main train station. In the air raids of 1942 Stadio Partenope was destroyed among others and in the following year the whole city suf
