        The Quick Brown Fox

      Alfred A. Knopf, New York 1942 - A hard-boiled novel set in a Mid-Western town which is taken over by "native terrorists who make the gangsters look like boyscouts;" the men are opposed by a contingent of brave men who eventually regain control of the town. Though the novel is clearly written with a hard-boiled framework, given Burnett's political leanings, the plot clearly contains elements portraying a fascist, dictatorial force terrorizing a group of people, and the people's response to restore order. Among the scarcest of the author's books, and one that seldom turns up in any sort of collectible dustjacket. First Printing. Octavo (20cm); orange cloth, with with titles and design stamped in red and black on spine and front panel; red topstain; dustjacket; 267pp. Some offsett from binders glue to pastedowns, with a barely perceptible degree of sunning to spine, else very Near Fine. Dustjacket is unclipped, with a corresponding degree of light sunning to spine, else Fine. [Attributes: First Edition]

This is the first issue of the famous Surrealist magazine "VVV", published in New York City in 1942 under the editorship of sculptor and photographer David Hare, with Andre Breton (often referred to as "the founder of modern Surrealism), Max Ernst and (later) Marcel Duchamp acting as editorial advisors. It provided an important outlet for European Surrealist artists, displaced as a result of World War Two, and gave them an opportunity to communicate with their American colleagues. Aime Cesare, Philip Lamantia, and Robert Motherwell were also associated with, and contributed to, the publication during its short life of only four issues (the second and third being combined into one). This copy is in the original stiff card covers, with the front cover artwork by Max Ernst. Contributors include Lionel Abel, William Carlos Williams, Andre Masson, Andre Breton, Claude Levi-Strauss, Robert Motherwell and others. It is illustrated throughout by Bouchard, G. de Chirico, Ernst, Hare, Matta, G. Onslow-Ford, Irving Penn, Picasso, Kurt Seligmann etc. The front cover is noticeably sunned, with two small discolourations to the right front. The rear cover is also sunned, but only at the edges.

        Handschriftlicher Briefwechsel mit Ferdinand Wessiak. 29 Briefe, 15 Karten, 1 Erzählung betitelt "Die Maus" 2 Wunschkarten mit 1 Holzschnitt und 1 Reproduktion, 1 Karte von Eva Kobinger.

      1942 - 1942 - circa 1972. Briefkorrespondenz meist gelocht. Der umfangreiche Briefwechsel mit Ferdinand Wessiak stammt hauptsächlich aus der Zeit 1942 - 1947 und ist insofern interessant, da es um die in Berlin lagernden Bilder geht, sowie die Alltagsprobleme die durch den Krieg verursacht wurden. Hans Kobinger 1892 - 1974 zählt zu den Künstlern Oberösterreichs rund um die Künstlergruppe 'März' zu der auch Vilma Eckl, Alfred Kubin, Klemens Brosch u. a. gehörten. Seine Arbeiten, ganz der Heimat verschrieben, erzielen durchaus beachtliche Preise auf dem internationalen Kunstmarkt. Ferdinand Wessiak lebte in der Kriegszeit in Berlin, später dann in Großgmain bei Salzburg. Er war der Vertraute von Johannes Ude, der im Widerstand zu NS-Regime stand und im KZ gefoltert wurde, zuletzt rettete ihn der Einmarsch der Alliierten. Der Briefwechsel gibt ein anschauliches Bild auch des geistigen Widerstandes und der Freundschaft. Deutsch Briefkorrespondenz meist gelocht. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Topographische Anatomie des Menschen. Lehrbuch und Atlas der regionär-stratigraphischen Präparation. 4 Bände cplt. in 7 Teilbänden (die Bände 1, 2 und 4 bestehen jeweils aus 2 Halbbänden). Band 1: Allgemeines, Brust und Brustgliedmaße. Band 2: Bauch, Becken und Beckengliedmaße. Band 3: Der Hals. Band 4: Der Kopf.

      München, Berlin, Wien und Innsbruck: Urban & Schwarzenberg 1942 - 1960.. 617, 868, 468 und 946 Seiten. Orig. Halbleinwand [Bände 1 und 2] bzw. Halbleder [Bände 3 & 4] mit orig. Schutzumschlägen für die Bände 3, 4.1 und 4.2 (Schutzumschläge mit kleinen Fehlstellen und fleckig, etwas berieben und bestoßen, sonst gute und saubere Exemplare). 4°. fest gebunden. Vollständiges Exemplar des berühmten, zwischen 1937 und 1960 erschienenen Anatomieatlas'. Die ersten beiden Bände in zweiter Auflage, die Bände drei und vier in erster Ausgabe. Pernkopf (1888-1955, er verstarb über der Arbeit an der ersten Hälfte des vierten Bandes) gilt unbestritten als einer der wichtigsten Anatomen und sein Atlas als Meisterwerk, dessen Zeichnungen auch heute noch in zahlreichen Publikationen Verwendung finden. Teils wird seine Arbeit sogar mit der des Vesalius verglichen. Die überaus detailgenauen Zeichnungen stammen von Erich Lepier (1898-1974), Ludwig Schrott (1906-1970), Karl Endtresser (1903-1978) und Franz Batke (1903-1983) sowie Werner Platzer u.a. Er ist in letzter Zeit jedoch in Verruf geraten, da Pernkopf, selbst leidenschaftlicher Nationalsozialist und frühzeitig Parteimitglied, seine Präparationen offenbar u.a. an Hinrichtungsopfern der Nationalsozialisten durchgeführt hat. Wolfgang Lamsa hält fest: "Leichen von am Landesgericht Wien hingerichteten WiderstandskämpferInnen, Juden und Jüdinnen oder so genannte Kriminellen" bildeten die Grundlage für Pernkopfs "einzigartiges" Werk, "(d)enn hier konnte zum ersten Mal die menschliche Anatomie an Körpern studiert werden, die nicht eines natürlichen Todes gestorben waren, sondern die sehr jung waren und deren Organe nicht durch Krankheit oder schädliche Umwelteinflüsse "beeinträchtigt" gewesen sind." In welchem Umfang die Leichen Hingerichteter verwendet wurden, konnte, wohl auch auf Grund der knappen Budgetierung des entsprechenden Forschungsunternehmens, nicht genau nachgewiesen werden. Sicher ist dagegen, daß von den insgesamt 791 noch vorhandenen Zeichnungen des Atlas' etwa die Hälfte nicht aus der NS-Zeit stammt. - Vgl. Gustav Spann: Untersuchungen zur Anatomischen Wissenschaft in Wien 1938-1945. Senatsprojekt der Universität Wien. Eine Zusammenfassung. Und: Wolfgang Lamsa: Die Inaugurationsrede des Eduard Pernkopf und seine "wissenschaftliche" Arbeit.

        De complete clandestiene productie van deze prachtige serie bibliofiele werken, in het geheim gedrukt in een klein aantal exemplaren onder de bezetting door de Nazi's. (22 titels).

      'De naam van de pers was een sardonische verwijzing naar het maximale gewicht van papier voor onofficieel drukwerk, dat door de bezetter was toegestaan' (Purvis). Het fonds van de Vijf Ponden Pers, gesticht door A.A. Balkema, W. Hellinga en J. van Krimpen in 1942, vormt een verzameling van zeer diverse, verfijnd ontworpen boeken, sommige heel groot, andere heel klein. De typografie is vaak van J. van Krimpen, soms van Dick Elffers, Susanne Heynemann, S.H. de Roos en anderen. Volgens H.N. Werkman in een brief aan August Henkels waren de boeken van de Vijf Ponden Pers bijna té mooi: 'Het was me of ik de producten van lettergieterijen in handen had. Wat is dat allemaal onberispelijk van uitvoering en wat is dat van uiterlijk en innerlijk weergaloos select. Je slaat je handen van verbazing ineen als je zooiets ziet in deze tijd.

        THERE IS A HAPPY LAND

      Henry Holt and Company, New York 1942 - First Printing. Octavo; mint green cloth, with titles stamped in blue on spine and front panel; blue-green topstain; dustjacket; 279pp. Fine in a very Near Fine dustjacket, unclipped, with some trivial sunning to spine and a few pinpoint rubs to spine ends. The second of Bezzerides' three novels, and unquestionably the scarcest. Unlike Long Haul and Thieve's Market, his second novel was never reprinted by any of the paperback publishing houses, and was the only one of the author's books never adapted for the big screen. The novel is set in California's San Joaquin Valley, following a family of migrant workers. It has drawn strong comparisons to Steinbeck's Grapes of Wrath, and draws heavily on experiences from the author's life. Bezzerides accurately portrays the suffering of farmers and migrant workers at the hands of the predatory agri-business. A stunning copy of a neglected but terrific piece of California fiction.

        L'Étranger

      Paris: Gallimard, 1942. Paris: Gallimard,, 1942. Octavo. Original white wrappers printed in black and red. Housed in a black cloth rounded spine solander box. Contents browned as always, very minor creasing to the wrappers, one tip repaired but an exceptional copy and rare thus. First edition, first printing. Camus's masterpiece was written in Algeria during the first years of the war. The manuscript was brought covertly to France and published in an edition of 4,400 copies without ceremony or fuss: no special paper copies were produced. The novel was a reworking of an earlier one, The Happy Death. It marked a key point in the development of European literature and represents the first fully formed presentation of the existential antihero.

        Oeuvre psychiatrique. Réuni et publié par Jean Fretet, avec une préface de Paul Guiraud.

      Paris, Presses universitaires de France, 1942 - Paris, Presses universitaires de France, 1942 ; 2 vol. in-8 à pagination continue, T.I : XVI, 452 pp. ; T.II : (6), de 455 à 858 pp. ; demi-maroquin fauve du temps, dos à 4 faux nerfs, reliure un peu frottée, couverture conservée, ex-libris gravé du Pr. Henri Faure & Dr. Marie-Louise Faure, intérieur en très bon état. Première édition, posthume, des oeuvres de Gatian de Clérambault, le célèbre médecin de l'infirmerie spéciale des aliénés au dépôt de la Préfecture de Police de la Seine et maître de Lacan. Les nombreuses notes qu'il avait rédigées sur divers sujets (délires collectifs, délires toxiques, épilepsie, psychoses passionnelles, automatisme mental.) furent rassemblées et firent l'objet de cette publication. Cette oeuvre est remarquable pour le fond, mais aussi pour le style ("où foisonnent les expressions pittoresques, les mots qui font image, les prestigieuses formules, les métaphores ingénieuses" selon les termes de Henry Ey). Provenance : Henri Faure, professeur de psychopathologie, directeur du laboratoire de psychologie pathologique de la Sorbonne, médecin-Chef à l'Hôpital psychiatrique de Bonneval. Cf. H. Baruk, La psychiatrie française de Pinel à nos jours, pp. 52-53 : "Clérambault, dans ses recherches mémorables, reprit la critique complète des délires de persécution et édifia sa théorie de l'automatisme mental"; H. Ey, Etudes psychiatriques, T. I, pp. 83-102 : "La conception mécaniciste de la psychiatrie, fille de celle de Wernicke, a été poussée à son extrême limite par un Psychiatre génial : Gaétan Gatian de Clérambault."; S. Gumpper & Th. Haustgen, Gaëtan Gatian de Clérambault (1872¿1934) ¿ I. Sa vie et son oeuvre, Annales Médico-psychologiques, 2012, 170, pp. 224¿230 : "Auteur atypique et brillant sur le plan théorique et sémiologique, adepte d'une 'clinique du regard', il circonscrit principalement les syndromes d'Automatisme Mental et d'érotomanie. Présents en arrière-plan, ses travaux plus méconnus (concernant les délires spirites, la phylogenèse de l¿intellect et la pensée archaïque.) auront une fonction heuristique car participant à la définition de son 'Dogme'."

        The Diary of Samuel Pepys

      69, 1942. 69, 1942 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. The diary of Samuel Pepys, published for the first time in its entirety. First edition thus, hand-numbered copy 64 of 1500 and signed by the illustrator, William Sharp to the rear of volume X. Complete in ten volumes. With 200 attractive in-text illustrations in red-brown ink throughout, and a detail of a different illustration to the boards of each volume. Transcribed by the Rev. Mynors Bright from the shorthand manuscript in the Pepysian Library at Magdalene College, Cambridge. Samuel Pepys (23 February 1633 26 May 1703) was an English naval administrator and Member of Parliament who is now most famous for the diary he kept for a decade while still a relatively young man. Although Pepys had no maritime experience, he rose by patronage, hard work and his talent for administration, to be the Chief Secretary to the Admiralty under both King Charles II and subsequently King James II. The detailed private diary Pepys kept is one of the most important primary sources for the English Restoration period. It provides a combination of personal revelation and eyewitness accounts of great events, such as the Great Plague of London, the Second Dutch War and the Great Fire of London. Condition: In quarter cloth bindings with pictorial paper covered boards. Externally, smart with slight shelfwear to corners. Tidemark to rear board of volume I and slight age-toning to front board of volume X. Internally, firmly bound, bright and clean. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED.
