        Dait a Sens : Kaigun Bijutsu (Art from the Naval Campaigns of the Greater East Asia War)

      Portfolio of 35 color plates showing reproductions of Japanese World War II propaganda paintings by Japanese official war artists, tipped in on cardstock, each with captioned tissue paper overlay, together with two leaves of text and list of plates mounted to inside cover. Lacking Emperor's Declaration of War and editor's note. Sheet size 16 x 12-1/4 inches, housed in folio case. Cloth-covered tie-bound case, contents loose as issued. Some fraying to fabric covering, overall good. Tokyo (Dai Nihon Kaiy Bijutsu Ky kai) 1943.

        Original cartoon illustration, "The Colossus Leans," ca 1943

      [ca 1943]. A large and accomplished caricature in which a panicked Hitler attempts to prop up a collapsing statue of Mussolini; probably drawn following the Allied invasion of Sicily in July, 1943. Groth was at this time Art Director for Parade Publications, for which this cartoon was likely illustrated (though we are unsure whether it was ever published). Though best remembered as a wartime sketch-artist and book illustrator, Groth began his career as a printmaker and cartoonist very much in the social-realist mold, publishing some of his earliest work in such left-wing forums as The New Masses and PM. He was also the first Art Director at Esquire, which was founded in 1933. Groth's mastery as a printmaker is on display in these early works, which manage to convey a simultaneous sense of urgency and delicacy which would become the hallmark of his battlefield sketches made during WW2 and the Korean War. Original cartoon illustration in black ink on watercolor paper; sheet size 63cm x 50cm (ca 24-13/4" x 19-3/4"). Signed in ink lower right. Drawing spotted and lightly soiled; glue remnants to margin, apparently from a removed mat; title in pencil below image; Very Good.

        Maine Patriarch in a Rocking Chair

      Robinhood, Maine: 1943. Watercolor. Signed and dated lower right. 18.5 x 13 inches on watercolor paper; matted. Provenance: Estate of the artist. Born in Cleveland, Ohio in 1919, Jason Schoener came from a family of distinguished American artists. He was the nephew of sculptor/painter William Zorach and his wife, painter Marguerite Zorach. Beginning in 1939, Schoener spent his summers at the Zorach family farm in Georgetown, Maine, where he studied art with his Uncle William. After service in the Pacific during WWII, Schoener served as an instructor, department chairman, and dean at California College of Arts and Crafts in Oakland, CA. Schoener's other teaching assignments included Mills College in Oakland, California, and the Athens Technological Institute in Greece. Meanwhile, Schoener continued to use his Georgetown and then Robinhood homes Maine as a summer studio. Over the span of almost two decades, Schoener had several solo exhibitions at the Midtown Gallery on East 57th Street in New York City. His works are in many museum and private collections, including the Oakland Museum and the Whitney Museum in New York. He died in 1997.

        Handleiding om op verschillende wijzen de breedte buiten den middag of meridiaan te vinden, door waarnemingen aan de zon of starren. Groningen, R.J. Schierbeek, 1827. 8vo. With a lithographed folding plate and numerous letterpress tables (numbered I-VI, but some spread over several pages). Contemporary boards, covered with red sprinkled paper, rebacked with brown paper tape.

      Bierens de Haan 1943; Cat. NHSM, p. 687; Crone Library 807, cf. pp. xlvii-xlviii; Maritieme Gesch. der Nederlanden III, p. 216; Picarta (2 copies); Saakes VIII, pp. 371-372; WorldCat (same 2 copies). Very rare first edition of a guide introducing Hazewinkel's method of calculating latitude, which was subsequently implemented as the standard method in the national Dutch marine and remained in use until the end of the 19th century. This method by Abraham Cornelis Hazewinkel (1772-1842), a ship's captain who established a Dordrecht school for training sailors in 1817, was also invented simultaneously, but independently, by the Dutch mathematician Rehuel Lobatto (1797-1866), and is known as the Lobatto-Hazewinkel method. It replaced the longer method of Cornelis Douwes, introduced in the late 18th century. An equally rare second edition, published in 1839, was reprinted in facsimile in 1992.With a library stamp on title-page, some occasional foxing, one leaf slightly soiled in the lower margins, binding slightly rubbed and rebacked, with the top of the spine torn. Good nearly untrimmed copy, with most of the deckles intact.

        Christmas - This Way! [with] Original Brass binding die-stamp for the spine of the book

      Oxford University Press, New York 1943 - First edition. Illustrated by Robb Beebe. Octavo. Slight wear, about fine in handsome near fine dustwrapper with a short tear and modest age-toning.[With]: Original brass binding die stamp for the spine of the book. Approximately 0.5" x 6.75". A little tarnished, else near fine. The die reads (in reverse lettering): "Beebe / Christmas This Way / Oxford".The provenance presents a mildly interesting story: a local colleague was buying books out of the trunk of a gentleman's car and came across a bag of brass die-stamps from the Oxford University Press from the late 1930s through the early 1950s, when Oxford did much of their printing in the U.S. My colleague inquired and the gentleman revealed that his next stop was the scrap yard where he was going to sell the dies to be melted down for the brass. My colleague paid him double the scrap price for them. We paid a bit more. In any event, a unique artifact from this charming children's book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      New York: Pantheon Books / Bollingen Series, 1943. [8],84,[4]pp. Quarto book of text, in printed wrappers, accompanied by printed cloth portfolio (62 x 47 cm) with ribbon ties, containing eighteen original color pochoir prints. The upper and lower paper folding flaps enclosing the plates are a bit rumbled and snagged, slight bumps to extreme lower corner of a few plates, some occasional isolated marginal smudges or tiny spots (some inherent in paper), otherwise an unusually nice set, very good to near fine. The uncommon and beautiful first edition of the first publication in the numbered sequence of the Bollingen Series, and one of the most elaborate productions to appear under its imprint. Jeff King (Hashkeh-yilth-e- yah; 1865-1964) lived on the Pinedale Navaho Reservation, and performed this ritual on the occasion of the departure of Navaho men to serve in the US Army during WWII. Oakes, who was then living on the reservation, was allowed to record the two day ceremony, and kept a record of the elaborate sandpaintings that are integral to the ritual. Based on his service as an Army scout from 1891-1911, King was the first Navaho to be interred at Arlington National Cemetery. The Bollingen Series, published under the auspices of the Bollingen Foundation with the support of Paul Mellon and his first wife, Mary, has to be reckoned one of the most ambitious and significant publishing enterprises of the 20th century. And it was highly appropriate that it was inaugurated by this beautiful production incorporating commentary by Joseph Campbell, who was long associated with the Series as author and editor.

      New York: L.B. Fischer, 1943. First Edition. First Printing. A Very Good copy of the author's first novel, lacking the dustjacket. Spine panel slightly faded, moderate edgewear to the spine ends and corner tips, with the top foredge lightly soiled. Wolfert has inscribed this copy "For Sidney Cohen with best wishes, Ira Wolfert." Like Wolfert, Cohen was a native New Yorker, and a noted psychiatrist who reported the effects of LSD during the 1960's. Wolfert didn't sign much, which makes the association here all the more interesting. 'Tucker's People' is a novel Walter Rideout credits as "one of the most distinguished American novels of the whole forties," and basis for the sinister 1948 film noir directed by Abraham Polonsky. A key film noir source title, and one that is seldom encountered signed.

        Ministère de la reconstruction et de l'urbanisme : Charte de l'urbanisme

      Paris, Imprimerie Nationale 1943 - In-8° broché, 24 pages. Mythique chartre qui préfigure la célèbre chartre d'Athènes et que Le Corbusier ne laissera jamais évoquée par crainte d'un rappel de son travail auprès du gouvernement de Vichy. Selon l'Encyclopédie Larousse : « Personnalité provocante : cet homme que les militants d'extrême droite qualifiaient si aisément de bolchevik était membre d'une organisation fasciste. » De même source : « En 1941 Destin de Paris reprenant le « Plan Voisin » est un appel ouvert à l'autorité de Vichy. » En 1926, Le Corbusier se rapproche de membres du Faisceau de Georges Valois, un des premiers partis fascistes organisé en France23 et dissout en 1928, associant antiparlementarisme et syndicalisme révolutionnaire, où certains participants prônent la mise en place d'une politique nationale d'aménagement du territoire et de planification urbaine. En janvier 1931, il devient ainsi membre du comité de rédaction de la revue Plans fondée en 1930 par Philippe Lamour, considéré comme le père de l'aménagement du territoire en France, un ancien membre de ce parti, tout comme Hubert Lagardelle, François de Pierrefeu et Pierre Winter membres du comité de rédaction. En 1933, il participe à la revue Prélude dirigée par son ami Winter, ancien membre du Faisceau également. Néanmoins, dans un article publié la même année dans cette revue, Le Corbusier attaque à la fois « l'architecture mussolinienne moderne » et le régime lui-même : « Rome imitant Rome, une folle redondance. » François de Pierrefeu contribue pour sa part à la revue Plans et à la revue Prélude. Bien que d'origine suisse, Le Corbusier a tenté en vain de vendre ses idées au régime de Vichy, à l'occasion de la modernisation mise en oeuvre de la règlementation de l'urbanisme et des futures reconstructions, pendant les 17 mois et demi de son séjour dans cette ville, de janvier 1941 à juillet 1942, malgré la nomination d'Hubert Lagardelle comme ministre du Travail dans le gouvernement Pierre Laval (avril 1942-novembre 1943). Pour ce faire, François de Pierrefeu est aux côtés de Le Corbusier, période durant laquelle ils signent ensemble le livre La Maison des hommes. En juin 1942, son plan d'urbanisme pour Alger est rejeté. Après le départ de Le Corbusier de Vichy, le 1er juillet 1942, il devient de mi-1942 au 20 avril 1944 conseiller technique à La Fondation française pour l'étude des problèmes humains dirigée par l'eugéniste et prix Nobel de médecine de 1912, le professeur Alexis Carrel. François de Pierrefeu continue de défendre les intérêts de l'architecte auprès des autorités gouvernementales. Par la suite, en 1944, Pierre Winter sera quant à lui nommé inspecteur général du Travail du gouvernement de Vichy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Typed letter signed

      Faber and Faber, London, 13 October 1943 - One page, approximately 350 words, to the art scholar Hartley Ramsden explaining at some length a delay in the publication of his essay, apparently in an anthology: "I have your letter of the 5th October and am much distressed to learn the facts which you set before me." "The delay is entirely due to circumstances arising out of the war. The available printers have limited resources and we have to have those books printed first which are needed first, and after printing there are often similar delays owing to the difficulties of the binders." The book which took precedence was `Education through Art' by Herbert Read, with whom Ramsden had been at handbags drawn the previous year in the pages of Cyril Connolly's `Horizon' magazine. Folded twice for mailing else in nice condition. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

I februar 1959 holdt Karen Blixen en tale ved American Academy of Arts' årlige festmiddag. Ved Blixens bord satt den amerikanske forfatteren og Blixen-beundrerinnen Carson McCullers. Under middagen forteller Blixen at hun kunne tenke seg å treffe Marilyn Monroe, noe McCullers overhører. Hun kontakter sin forfatterkollega Arthur Miller (gift med Monroe1956-61) og arrangerer en lunsj hvor de fire treffes. 3 år etter at dette fotografiet tas, dør Blixen og Monroe med en måneds mellomrom. Møtet er dokumentert ved nedenstående privatutførte postkortfotografi, påskrevet i Karen Blixens hånd på verso.
