        o. T. [Flüchtlinge]. Oel auf Leinwand.

      1941 1941 - 45 x 27 cm, Links unten monogr. u. dat. FM 1941. - Frans Masereel (1889-1972) bedeutender belgischer Grafiker, Zeichner und Maler, enger Freund von Stefan Zweig, der vor allem für seine beeindruckenden, von starken Emotionen geprägten Holzschnitte bekannt ist. Er vertrat in seiner Kunst einen konsequenten Humanismus. Er stellte die Menschen in ihrer Verlorenheit und Verlassenheit in der modernen Zivilisation dar, ohne indessen als Pessimist gelten zu können. Denn gleichzeitig lieferte er Beispiele für Handlungsmöglichkeiten, um dem Menschlichen in einer sich entmenschlichenden Welt den ihm gebührenden Platz zu sichern. Beispiele hierfür sind die 80 Holzschnitte ?Das Gesicht Hamburgs? oder die 100 Holzschnitte des Zyklus ?Die Stadt? (1925). 1919 erschien seine Folge von 167 Holzschnitten ?Mein Stundenbuch?, die in Deutschland 1920 von Kurt Wolff verlegt wurde.Eine Freundschaft verband ihn mit Henry Gowa, der ihn nach Saarbrücken holte, wo er von 1947 bis 1951 die Meisterklasse für Malerei an der neugegründeten Schule für Kunst und Handwerk leitete.Frans Masereel regte am 26. September 1953 gemeinsam mit den deutschen Künstlern HAP Grieshaber, Erich Heckel, Gerhard Marcks, Ewald Mataré, Otto Pankok, Max Pechstein, Karl Rössing und anderen in Zürich an, die ?XYLON Societé Internationale des Graveurs sur Bois? zu gründen. Diese Gründung der Internationalen Vereinigung der Holzschneider XYLON wurde beschlossen und Masereel war ihr erster Präsident.1956 schuf er ein weiteres großes Holzschnittwerk, 100 Blätter unter dem Titel ?Mijn Land? 1964 erhielt Masereel den Kulturpreis des Deutschen Gewerkschaftsbundes.Eine Dauerausstellung von Masereel-Werken gibt es im Frans Masereel Centrum in Kasterlee bei Antwerpen. 3000 gr.

        Dilo Jana Zrzaveho (The Work of Jan Zrzavy) 1906-1940

      Prague: Umelecka beseda & Druzstveni prace 1941 - 4to, cloth, 312 pages, in an edition of 1000, with a signed lithograph by Zrzavy, numerous color tipped in reproductions and b/w photo reproductions, in dust jacket. A catalogue raisonné of the work of Zrzavy to date, this book also was a strong rallying-point of Czech national pride under the oppression of the German occupation and dismemberment of the country. Jan Zrzavy (1890-1977) was one of the strong personalities of the Czech modern art world. He lived through and participated in many of the Czech movements, beginning with Sursum in 1910 through Devetsil and thereafter stood out as an isolated individual pursuing his own path away from the avant-garde movements of constructivism and surrealism. He was tolerated under both the Nazis and communists, largely because they found his work politically inoffensive, but they failed to understand the strong undercurrent of his championing a spiritual and especially Czech spiritual mentality and he, like the illustrator Josef Lada, came to represent what many Czechs like to consider unique to themselves. At the point this book was published, Zrzavý had executed a portrait of Karel Hynek Mácha, the famous Bohemian poet of the 19th century who was seen to rescue the Czech language from near-extinction. This image became a clandestine point of power and furthered a will to survive under continued denigrating circumstances. The book had a similar value to the reading public. This is a rare book, in very good condition overall, with a clipped upper dust wrapper. 2500.00 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        UN CANTO PARA BOLIVAR

      [Mexico City]: [Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México], 1941. First Edition. Wraps. Very good. 4to. Original stiff wraps in glassine (as issued). Glassine toned with some chipping at spine, mild soil here and there. Some minor bumping to corners. Front hinge a little tender. Pages unopened along top edge. Very good overall. Limited edition, one of 500 unnumbered copies. With drawings and vignettes by Julio Prieto. INSCRIBED by Neruda: "para / Mercedes de Acosta / afectuoso [indecipherable, possibly "recuerdo"] de / Pablo Neruda / 1943 New York." [16]pp. Handsomely letter-pressed poem printed on the occasion of Neruda&#39;s Bolivar Ampitheater reading at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México on July 24th, 1941, the 111th anniversary of Bolivar&#39;s death. Inscribed to writer and gay pioneer Mercedes de Acosta. Acosta was a writer, poet, novelist, and dramatist, but is perhaps best remembered today for her relationship with Greta Garbo, as well as for her 1960 memoir HERE LIES THE HEART which at the time was groundbreaking for its (admittedly veiled) acknowledgement of her sexuality and relationships. It went on the become something of an underground classic and two recent biographies have revived critical interest in her life and work. An interesting association. [Becco 68].

        UN CANTO PARA BOLIVAR

      [Mexico City]: [Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México], 1941. First Edition. Wraps. Very good. 4to. Original stiff wraps in glassine (as issued). Glassine toned with some chipping at spine, mild soil here and there. Some minor bumping to corners. Front hinge a little tender. Pages unopened along top edge. Very good overall. Limited edition, one of 500 unnumbered copies. With drawings and vignettes by Julio Prieto. INSCRIBED by Neruda: "para / Mercedes de Acosta / afectuoso [indecipherable, possibly "recuerdo"] de / Pablo Neruda / 1943 New York." [16]pp. Handsomely letter-pressed poem printed on the occasion of Neruda&#39;s Bolivar Ampitheater reading at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México on July 24th, 1941, the 111th anniversary of Bolivar&#39;s death. Inscribed to writer and gay pioneer Mercedes de Acosta. Acosta was a writer, poet, novelist, and dramatist, but is perhaps best remembered today for her relationship with Greta Garbo, as well as for her 1960 memoir HERE LIES THE HEART which at the time was groundbreaking for its (admittedly veiled) acknowledgement of her sexuality and relationships. It went on the become something of an underground classic and two recent biographies have revived critical interest in her life and work. An interesting association. [Becco 68].

        Into Battle

      London: Cassell and Company, Ltd., 1941. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Near fine/Near fine. This is a superior copy of the first edition of the first volume of Churchill&#39;s famous war speeches. Into Battle contains speeches from May 1938 when Churchill was still out of favor and out of power, to November 1940, six months after Churchill became wartime Prime Minister. During his long public life, Winston Churchill played many roles worthy of note - Member of Parliament for more than half a century, soldier and war correspondent, author of scores of books, ardent social reformer, combative cold warrior, painter, Nobel Prize winner. But Churchill&#39;s preeminence as a historical figure owes most to his indispensable leadership during the Second World War, when his soaring and defiant oratory sustained his countrymen and inspired the free world. Of Churchill, Edward R. Murrow said: "He mobilized the English language and sent it into battle." Between 1941 and 1946, Churchill&#39;s war speeches were published in seven individual volumes. In this first war speeches volume the great battle of the Twentieth Century and Churchill&#39;s life begins. There were twelve printings of this edition. Here is the first printing, first state (identified by Churchill bibliographer Ronald Cohen as missing pagination on pages 78 and 294). The binding is a smoother blue cloth variant, which in our experience is exclusively associated with the first state of the first printing. The British first editions of Churchill&#39;s wartime speech volumes are visually striking, but were printed on cheap wartime paper, bound in coarse cloth, and wrapped in bright, fragile dust jackets. They proved highly susceptible to spotting, soiling, fading, and wear, so the passage of time shows on most surviving first editions. Condition of this copy is near fine in a near fine dust jacket. The blue cloth binding is square, clean, and tight with bright gilt and only trivial wear to extremities. The contents remain crisp and bright. The book definitively feels unread. Spotting is primarily confined to prelims and page edges. The sole previous ownership mark is a vintage decorative "Book Society" plate affixed to the first free endpaper, but with the name space remaining blank. The dust jacket is the correct first printing (with unique text on the front flap differentiating the first printing dust jacket from all 11 subsequent printings). The dust jacket is exceptional both for completeness and for an unusually bright, wholly unfaded spine. The front flap is unclipped, retaining the original price. We note mild spotting to the white rear face, a trivial hint of wear at the spine ends and corners, and a small scratch to the lower spine. The dust jacket is protected in a removable, archival quality clear cover. Bibliographic reference: Cohen A142.1.a, Woods/ICS A66(a.1), Langworth p.204.

        I WANTED WINGS (1941)

      Paramount 1941 - Vintage original 22 x 28" (56 x 72 cm.) half sheet poster style B, USA. Ray Milland, William Holden, Wayne Morris, Brian Donlevy, Constance Moore, Veronica Lake, dir: Mitchell Leisen; Paramount. Filmed on location at Kelly Field and Randolph Air Base in San Antonio Texas just before the United States entry into World War II. This film made Veronica Lake a star. She appeared for the first time in her trademark hair style and wore the gown by Edith Head which became iconic. The story was about the training of three recruits in the Army Air Corps. The red, white and blue theme of this poster is indicative of where the country was at the time. This is a terribly rare poster, and one we have never seen before. Paper-backed, NEAR FINE.
