In 1946, after the war in Europe ended, he moved briefly to Paris where he worked as a foreign correspondent for Czech newspapers and as a freelance photographer. He befriended Jean Cocteau and the Surrealist group of artists. In 1952, he emigrated to Berkeley, California, then in 1958, to Montreal, and from 1960 - 1964, he worked in the photographic department of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. In 1964, he returned to Berkeley, where he remained until his death in 1994. He taught photography variously at Mills College, Holy Names College, the University of California, Berkeley, and the California College of Arts and Crafts.The influence of Jaromír Funke on Kriz is evident in this portfolio - Kriz was his assistant in 1942. The title of this work, his first published portfolio of original photographs, translates as, "The Abandoned Come Back to Life." It is limited to 50 numbered copies, this being number 21.

        Columbus Erdglobus in 12 Segmenten und zwei Polkappen. Modell 200, politisch-physisch mit wirtschaftsgeographischen Eintragungen. Maßstab 1 : 40 000 000. Bearbeitet von O. Winkel. Pappkugel mit 12 kolorierten Papiersegmenten, Halbmeridianring aus Aluminium, Holzfuß mit eingearbeitetem Kompaß umd Aluminiumfassung. Durchmesser etwa 34 cm, Höhe ca. 52 cm (in Australien eine kleine Fehlstelle, wenige ganz kleine Schabstellen und ein paar kleine Braunflecke, sonst wohlerhaltenes Exemplar).

      Berlin - Lichterfelde: Columbusverlag Paul Oestergaard [1942 oder 1943].. . Seltener Globus aus der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus mit den entsprechenden Gebietsansprüchen. Österreich ist "angeschlossen", Tschechien und Polen existieren nicht mehr. Die Grenze zur Sowjetunion ist bereits bis kurz vor Minsk und Odessa verschoben, während auf einem vorliegenden, verlagsseitig auf 1941 datierten Globus "nur" Polen in das Deutsche Reich eingegliedert ist und die Grenze zu Rußland durch die ehemalige polnische Grenze bestimmt ist. Dementsprechend kann der vorliegende Globus frühestens 1942 und spätestens 1943 hergestellt worden sein und dürfte damit die letzte Auflage des berühmten Globus vor Kriegsende sein, da vom Columbusverlag nach 1943 keine Globen mehr hergestellt wurden. - Vgl. Lehmann 96.

        Archive of Eight Typed Letters Signed

      Maryland and Ontario, 1942. unbound. All of these letters were written to Mr. Rodgers, a member of the Executive Board of the Council for Democracy. Four of the letters (totaling six pages) are on 7.5 x 5.75-inch personal stationery from Maynard's home in Westminster, Maryland, dated June 23 to August 19, 1942. Three of the letters (totaling four pages) are on 11 x 8.5-inch letterhead from Assumption College in Windsor, Ontario, dated from July 6 to September 23, 1942. The remaining letter is on a plain sheet of 11 x 8.5-inch paper with the Westminster address typed in, dated September 17, 1942. In this correspondence, Maynard agrees to write an article about why Catholics should support Russia and also expresses that he does not want to be party to ousting Liam O'Connor, in part: "With regard to the problem of Protestant pacifists, well, I understand that matter rather well, having been brought up as a Protestant..." He disparages Fr. Coughlin: "I hear that [his] school for diplomats is a bluff..." He talks about the request to soften his remarks in a magazine article: "...a delicate subject...and I have tried to handle it with discretion, my main fear now is that I have been so careful as to be a bit colorless..." He also expresses his need to make money. At the time Maynard wrote these letters, he was not in the best of health and was also undergoing economic hardship. The following year, he spent long periods away from home doing research and giving lectures, while the family was chronically short of money (according to T.W. Hendricks "A Historian of American Catholicism"). These letters provide a window into his life and thinking in the summer of 1942. The letters all have natural folds; several have small stains (including one with a paperclip stain), but are all in very good(-) to very good(+) condition. English poet and literary critic who was best known as one of the most influential historians on Roman Catholicism in the United States.

        The Stranger; a novel of the Big Sur [*SIGNED*]

      New York: William Morrow and Company. Near Fine in Very Good dj. 1942. First Edition. Hardcover. [a nice solid copy, very light wear to the extremities, tiny tear in cloth at top of spine, light browning to fore-edge; jacket shows wear (tiny tears, a bit of creasing) along top and bottom edges, shallow chipping at spine ends (no text affected)] (illustrated endpapers) INSCRIBED to friends ("Mudge" and "Herbert") and SIGNED (as "The Stranger") by the author on the half-title page, at "Shanagolden / Big Sur, California / Sept. 13th, 1942," several weeks prior to the publication date. The novel is set in the 1870s and tells the story of a rugged man of action and his mail-order bride; eventually (1973) there was a movie version, "Zandy's Bride," starring Gene Hackman and Liv Ullmann. The author's first novel, it is not only a key work of California fiction, but it also had a profound effect on the life of the writer who would come to be most identified with Big Sur: Henry Miller. Miller read the book a few weeks after first coming to the area, and years later he wrote: "Till then I had been only a visitor. The reading of this 'little classic' ... made me more than ever determined to take root here." (Baird & Greenwood 2136) Signed by Author .

        The High Window

      Alfred Knopf, New York 1942 - Advance issue of the 1st edition. Original wrappers (bound into the dustjacket as published). Minor specks of use here and there but fine condition (no chips, tears, repair, soiling or fading), blue as a bruise, fresher than NASCAR road–kill, and copies in this easily wounded binding state (probably 5% of the 6,500 copy 1st printing) are rarer in fine condition than things that get better by talking about them. Publisher’s stamp on the top edge, “Sample Copy Not For Sale.” Chandler has managed an additional level of fame, first because unsophisticated readers, with their literal minds, were baffled by his irony, and sought explanations that only intensified the joke, and second because those writers who did not have his acute powers of accurate observation, simplistically scorned them as cynicism. So he remains unequaled by his counterfeiters (those literary equivalents of Judy Garland impersonators) who regarded how he wrote as easy to exceed, if one just wrote grumpy dialogue and inner monologues, and then, of course, they did so inadequately (when they came to shoe the horse, the beetle stretched out his leg). High Window is his 3rd novel of 7, and apart from Playback (unfairly disparaged), and no matter how anybody ranks them, you can throw a pinned–up tail at the donkey poster comprised of the other 6, and wherever it lands, you have pricked a great book. This one opens with a woman who’s face is her pepper spray, and then is progressively packed with town folk who display all the allure of cracked plaster, and overanxious criminals who track their prey with the dedication of Elmer Fudd (shake car keys over their grave and they would rise from the dead to steal a ride). But Chandler manages to tattoo a soap bubble, and elegantly move them all through a convoluted plotline with no more uproar than a jellyfish. The themes remind the reader that vanity speaks to honor while conscience speaks to justice, that violence is not the problem, it is a consequence of the problem, and that there are 2 types of skepticism, the kind that prods you to incite sincerity, and the kind that is just built into poor quality people, prematurely disenchanted with the future. And there’s something heavier here too, something arcane. The profound idea that the detective novel is not about murder, it is about restoring order. If you look carefully, some chance copies, of these advance issues, of Chandler’s early novels (the first 4) in wrappers and dustjacket, are going to be out there, but they will all bear the wear of previous mishaps, or be encrusted with alluvial deposits, and then disappointingly burdened with weak excuses for their condition, borne out by a careful reading of the descriptions attached to copies called fine, which are filled with more buried lies than MPG ads. Any as fine as this one have always been rare, and that is the trial of patience now demanded of those who would collect Raymond Chandler, since you can always find multiple copies of his 1st editions for sale, you just can’t find any that are in unassailably fine condition.

        Les Bucoliques *

      A. Gonin/L. Grosclaude, Lausanne/Zurich 3.1942. - Feuillet d'annonce de publication de 4 pages 33 x 26 sur japon mince. Où l'on apprend que le projet originel était d'illustrer Les Bucoliques de Virgile, dont un extrait figurera dans les "Eglogues" parues 5 mois plus tard, ce qu'annonce cet avis de lancement collectif des éditeurs Gonin et Grosclaude pour avril 1942. La raison de la modification de ce projet au bénéfice du premier reste une énigme. Il semble que le second se rabattit sur Morgenthaler pour imager cet ouvrage paru sous sa seule enseigne en octobre, deux mois après les Eglogues.Les deux entreprises, hormis le texte, étaient assez proche, tirage (à 10 exemplaires près) et nombre d'estampes similaires.Notre dossier comporte une lithographie originale refusée de Barraud, avec mention référant au projet initial. Un scoop puisque nous n'avions pas connaissance de la chose lors de l'établissement du catalogue raisonnée des livres illustrés de l'artiste, recyclé dans le sixième chapitre de mon premier essai, OR ANGE, publié chez Slatkine à Genève en 2008.[Cailler & Darel 202-225; Gindrat 27]
