        Salon d'Automne 1944 [Catalogue des ouvrages de peinture, sculpture, dessin, gravure, architecture et art décoratif exposées au Palais des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris (Salon de la Libération) : inc. Exposition Pablo Picasso]

      Paris: Durand, 1944. Fair. Front cover detached and with two clean tears at left edge, some chipping to right edge. Title page missing (?) Age toning in general to other pages, but everything else tight. With a few small notations in pencil, apparently denoting artists whose works the catalogue owner especially wanted to see. The detached cover would look stellar if framed!. Red/white/blue illustrated French patriotic wraps with French blue lettering. 64 pp. with no illustrations. Separate sheet listing the group of surrealist artists exhibiting. A very scarce copy of the catalogue from the first post-liberation Salon d'Automne, held at Salon d'Automne (Paris), 6 Oct. - 5 Nov. 1944. "The Salon d'Automne was established as an alternative to the conservative official Salon. It was also an alternative to the Salon des Indépendants, which was liberal but had a juryless policy that often led to mediocrity. The founders of the Salon d'Automne were a group of artists and poets that included Eugène Carrière, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Georges Rouault, Édouard Vuillard, Joris-Karl Huysmans, and Émile Verhaeren, under the leadership of the architect Frantz Jourdain. They decided to form their own organization with the aims of welcoming any artist who wished to join, selecting a jury for exhibitions by drawing straws from the new group's membership, and giving the decorative arts the same respect accorded the fine arts...The first Salon d'Automne was held on October 31, 1903, at the Petit-Palais. The organizers chose autumn as the time of year for their shows because most other exhibits in Paris took place in the spring and summer." (Encyclopedia Britannica); "In August 1944 came the Liberation of Paris, and the first Autumn Salon to be held in the newly freed city. This time Picasso is given a room of his own that he fills with examples of his wartime production. It is a triumphant return for Picasso, marred, however, by disturbances that have remained unattributed. On Nov. 16, 1944, Matisse wrote a letter to Camoin: "Have you seen the Picasso room? It is much talked about. There were demonstrations in the street against it. What success! If there is applause, whistle." One can guess who the demonstrators might have been -- cronies of the Fauves, still ranting against the Judeo-Marxist decadent Picasso." (Michele C. Cone, Matisse and the Nationalism of Vichy, 1940-1944, artnet Magazine); The "Exposition Pablo Picasso" appears on page 71 of the catalogue.

        Judaica

      August 2, 1944. Oskar Schindler witnessed a German raid on the Jewish ghetto in Krakow in the summer of 1942 and watched innocent people being packed onto trains bound for certain death. He later said, "Beyond this day, no thinking person could fail to see what would happen. I was now resolved to do everything in my power to defeat the system." After the Krakow ghetto was liquidated, many Jews were sent to the Plaszow concentration camp. Schindler wrote the names and jobs of 1200 Jews at Plaszow that he needed to work at his enamelware factory in Krakow and gave this list to the Nazi SS. His workers were called the Schindlerjuden (Schindler Jews). He called them "my children." The camp at Plaszow had been opened in December 1942. As the Russian forces advanced in late 1944, the Germans began the evacuation of the slave labor camps in their path. From the camp at Plaszow, many were sent to Auschwitz. <br /><br />Typed Document initialed by an official, one page, 8.25" x 12". Headed in German and Polish: <I>"Polish Police Station."</I> Text in Polish. [Plaszow], August 2, 1944. Five people are listed, each accused of sabotage and to be sent to the Plaszow Concentration Camp on August 3, 1944: Albert Zóbe, Jozef Openchinski, Jan Stanoraski, Eva Rospondek, and Jacek Kasperek. The SS-WVHA is mentioned at the end of the list. Oswald Pohl, general of the Waffen-SS, was head of the SS-WVHA, the main bureau for economic administration, was in charge of the organization of the concentration camps. Two file holes in blank left margin, lightly creased, else in fine condition.

        Oro e lavoro. Alla memoria di Aurelio Baisi. Rapallo

      s.e. (Tipografia Moderna), s.l. (Rapallo) 1944 - In 8 (cm 17 x 24), pp. 22 (il frontespizio e' compreso nella numerazione delle pagine). Opuscolo privo di legatura all'origine. Piccola macchietta al frontespizio, lievi debolezze marginali ai fogli. Edizione originale, rarissima, di questo scritto in italianoÂdi Ezra Pound di natura economica anche se si tratta di un'eccezione all'interno della tipologia dei testi legati a questa tematica in quantoÂsi presenta come un discorso di natura utopica. L'autore aderisce alla concezione confuciana del sapere e dell'etica, indirizzata a ricercare un principio ordinatore della realta', ravvisando nel sistema economico del credito bancario l'origine di tutti i mali dell'uomo e la causa della sua distruzione materialeÂspirituale. Interrogandosi sulla natura dell'economia, individua il suo centro nella moneta. L'interesse creato dal nulla su cui si basa il sistema economico fondato sugli istituti di credito fomenta l'erronea concezione di una moneta che 'da' frutto': 'l'oro non germoglia come il grano. Una rappresentazione d'oro che pretende che l'oro possiede questa facolta' e' una rappresentazione falsa. E' una falsificazione'. Note sono le vicende biografiche di Pound che nel 1940 si trasferi' in Italia aderendo al Fascismo a alla RSI. Nel 1945 fu arrestato dai Partigiani per poi essere internato nell'ospedale criminale federale 'St. Elizabeths' di Washington. ITA

        [Photo Album]: African-American Family Photograph Album from "America's Oldest Negro Community"

      Gouldtown, New Jersey, 1944. Very Good. Oblong quarto. Measuring 11" x 7". Cloth over flexible boards. The album cover is well-worn, about very good; the photos are near fine. The album contains approximately 85 gelatin silver photographs, most 3.5" x 4.75" and captioned. The first photograph features a preadolescent boy captioned: "Harold L. Valentine, Jr. Dec 25, 1934" in the margin; underneath is a pencil annotation reading, "Me." Valentine born in 1923, lived in Gouldtown until his death in 1977. Most of the photographs depict Valentine's family, home, and farm. Shown are the family's goats, horses, and chicken houses, family vehicles, a man and woman playing guitars, and Valentine's father in a white Coca-Cola uniform. Valentine served as a Tech Sergeant in the Army Air Force during World War II, and many of the final 30 photographs in the album show African-American men in uniform at home and on a military base.Gouldtown, which is located in New Jersey about 60 miles south of Philadelphia, was christened "America's Oldest Negro Community" by Ebony magazine in 1952. It traces its roots to the 1700s when a freedman named Benjamin Gould married a Finnish woman. Community lore holds that in the mid-1700s two mixed-race brothers, who were previously indentured servants, arrived from the West Indies, settled near the Goulds and began families of their own after purchasing the passage of two "mail-order-brides" from the Netherlands. Shortly thereafter, a mixed-race couple (white and Native American) arrived from Cape May. It was descendants of these four families that formed the core of Gouldtown's population well into the latter half of 20th Century. A fascinating and very uncommon book on the town Gouldtown: A Very Remarkable Settlement of Ancient Date outlines the town's history, illustrated with photographs of mostly light-skinned, mixed-race inhabitants.An important visual record of mid-20th Century African-American life in one of the most historic African-American enclaves.

        La nausée. Roman.

      - Paris, Nouvelle Revue Française, 1944; in-8 couronne, 229 pp., cartonnage décoré de l'éditeur (Prassinos). Huret 494a. Contat/Rybalka 38/11b. Seconde édition (l'originale date de 1938, chez Gallimard), un des 550 exemplaires numérotés sur héliona. Avec un envoi autographe signé de l'auteur au Docteur Albeaux-Fernet, avec l'ex-libris de ce dernier. "Ce livre est à l'origine d'une carrière unique en son siècle, qui voit Sartre s'assurer une position dominante aussi bien en philosophie qu'en littérature, cumulant ainsi les rôles de Bergson et Gide dans la génération qui leur succède. La Nausée est généralement considérée comme la réussite littéraire majeure de Sartre, et lui-même pensait qu'il avait donné dans cette ?uvre l'intuition fondatrice de sa vision du monde. (?) Il est significatif que La Nausée soit le seul de ses livres auquel Sartre, à la fin de sa vie, se soit déclaré entièrement fidèle." (Michel Contat, En Français dans le Texte, p. 342). 1944 [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
