        Of Human Bondage (Original screenplay for the 1946 film, script editor's copy)

      Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1944. Second Revised Final draft script for the 1946 film. Copy belonging to the film's editor Clarence Kolster, with his name in holograph pencil on the first revision page, and notations throughout, mostly noting cut (or completed) scenes. Actress Bette Davis' name on the front wrapper in holograph pencil, though Davis was the lead role in the earlier 1934 John Cromwell version. This second film version of W. Somerset Maugham's classic novel stars Paul Henreid as a clubfooted medical student. Eleanor Parker is Mildred, the vulgar cockney waitress adored by Philip Carey (Henreid). The subject matter of Maugham's novel, exploring how sexual obsession can lead to ruin, was missing in the 1946 version thanks to studio censors, and Alexis Smith, who played the second female lead, said the remake should never have been produced. Orange titled wrappers, noted as 2nd REV FINAL on the front wrapper, rubber-stamped copy No. 40, dated June 22, 1944. Distribution page present, with receipt removed.

        [Photo Album]: Capture of Natzweiler-Struthof Concentration Camp and related Allied Occupation

      Natzweiler-Struthof Camp, Offenburg, and Heidelberg, Germany. 1944-48. Oblong octavo. Measuring approximately 11.75" x 8.25". String-tied red cloth over paper boards. Contains 96 gelatin silver photographs, several with detailed captions on the verso, mounted (and easily removable, with care) with clear corners onto gray cardstock leaves. Although some images are as late as 1948, most are from 1944-5. An additional 19 family photographs and two newspaper clippings are placed at the end of the volume indicate Scottish lineage, and include two large press photographs. War photographs measure approximately 2.75" x 2.5". Private and press photographs range in size from smallest 4.75" x 3.5" to largest 8.25" x 6.25". Wear to front boards, a few photographs creased, otherwise very good.Second World War album of snapshot photographs taken by an Allied soldier who participated in the capture of the German camp features striking views from the Natzweiler-Struthof concentration camp situated in the Vosges Mountains in Alsace in France. Natzweiler-Struthof was the only purpose-built concentration camp constructed by the Germans on French soil (although there were some temporary camps to accommodate battlefield prisoners). Originally conceived of as a labor camp manned by politically undesirable German citizens, it was expanded to include a crematory for the mass extermination of Jews, Gypsies, and captured resistance fighters. The writer Boris Pahor wrote his novel Necropolis based on his experiences there. The Germans had largely evacuated the camp by the time it was captured (over 2000 died when the remaining prisoners were marched to Dachau) although a small staff of SS soldiers remained.The soldier who took these photographs is not identified, however a newspaper clipping together with two press photographs made in Edinburgh suggest that the soldier was from Haddington, about 20 miles east of Edinburgh, Scotland. It seems he was posted in Germany during the period of Allied occupation, deduced by a photograph showing the Karlsruhe Bridge over the Rhine river, captioned with the date of 4 May 1948. A substantial number of photographs reveal peripheral evidence of the atrocities which took place at this particularly remote and notorious location, the captions adding details gleaned while bearing witness to the years and final breaths lost by so many.Although the photos are relatively small, among other things they illustrate are multiple urns on a shelf, captioned: "used to send ashes of political persons back to Germany - cost for earthenware urn 60 marks, metal urns 90 marks." A crematorium: "furnace used to burn bodies in gasoline, fire used to heat boiler for hot showers in next room." A surgical table upon which medical experiments and dissections were performed on "dead and live patients." A table of "human scalps - after the laundry treatment scalps were pulled off victims before body was burned." Prisoners (presumably German soldiers) tied to one another with ropes at the wrists and marching on a road, captioned noting the white stripes on their pant legs. Prisoners pulling a heavy cart uphill: "SS prisoners pulling cart up steep mountain road. SS prisoners are serving 20 years in camp. Nazis used to make Allied prisoners do the same thing." From the entrance of the camp: "...the clock in the watch tower is run by hand by an S.S. prisoner..." Another of a long range view of the camp: "... scaffold is in front where Germans used to hang Allied prisoners found escaping. The drop is only 2 feet when the trap door is open - not enough to break a man's neck - the victim was suffocated to death while the other prisoners lined up to watch."New York Times reporter Milton Bracker toured the camp on December 5, 1944, about two weeks after the camp was liberated by the French. In his report he mentioned the dissection table and the small storage room of burial urns. Three days later the camp was inspected by American officers who also reported the disinfection unit, a large pile of human hair, a gas chamber, and an incinerator designed for burning human bodies.Among the other pictures are soldiers posing at a road sign for Offenburg, where there was a subcamp of Natzweiler-Struthof, photographs of a German cemetery, downed German aircraft, large fixed German artillery, and railroad tracks that lead to the camp. There are also images of devastated streets and cities in ruins, as well as the immediate celebration of Allied soldiers following the campaign that brought the liberation of the camp. Several show jubilant and proud soldiers donning or displaying large Nazi flags; others are captioned "VE Day." Others are taken in Heidelberg (one of the few German cities that emerged from the War relatively unscathed), where a soldier stands in front of a building with a banner sign for the Military Government of the U.S.A.Images that capture some of the essence of the dark times and horrific acts that took place during the Second World War. An affecting and immediate set of scenes taken at a pivotal period in the War. .

        Seven Sins.

      London, Cassell. 1944, 1944. First edition. 8vo. Clean and bright in publisher's orange cloth, titled in black to the spine. In a scintillating dustwrapper depicting all the usual Rohmertropes: corpse, incense, and lashings of sinister orientalism. Some edgewear to the jacket, creasing and chipping to the spine ends, nevertheless most attractive. Foxing to flyleaf, otherwise clean bright. Gaston Max, spy, raconteur and master of disguise combats disreputable Nazi types in wartorn London. As an added incentive it is noted on the rear of the flyleaf that not only has Mr.Rohmer written a lot of books but he was 'suppressed by the Gestapo in 1936!' There can be no higher recommendation that that surely?

        Invade Mecum" Volumes 3 and 4, together with a small collection of contemporary manuals.

      London: , 1944. Octavo, 14 parts in all, each wire-stitched in original self-wraps, hole-punched, and retained by a single treasury tag within the original card covers, 5 parts to volume 3, and 9 to volume 4. Profusely illustrated with maps and plans throughout, many full-page, together with numerous tables. A little rubbed and lightly soiled, staples a touch rusted, else very good. Excellent copies of these brilliantly conceived battle-dress pocket guide books for the troops invading on D-Day. Volume 3 contains 5 parts covering Pas de Calais, Nord, Somme, Oise, and Aisne; and volume 4, 9, Manche, Calvados, Seine-Inferieure, Orne, Eure, Eure et Loir, Mayenne, Sarthe, and Seine et Oise. The compilation of these brilliantly succinct and well-organised handbooks was the work of J.L. Austin, who was to become known as one of the leaders of "Oxford philosophy", and is often thought of "as the paradigmatic 'linguistic philosopher'" (ODNB). During the Second World War, after preliminary training, he was commissioned into the Intelligence Corps and posted to the War Office, where he was first employed working on the German Order of Battle, "work which demanded the exactly the kind of detailed accuracy, which was, of course, immensely congenial to him" (Warnock, "John Langshaw Austin: A Biographical Sketch", in Symposium on J.L. Austin, p.8). He subsequently took over command of G.H.Q. Home Forces, a small unit which had recently been formed to do preliminary work for the invasion of Western Europe, "and this was the field in which he became an unrivalled authority. His section, whose earlier days had been rather haphazard, was soon operating with method, rapidity, and a clear purpose". As preparation for D-Days advanced, Austin's section was "vastly enlarged and transferred, under the name of Theatre Intelligence Section, to 21 Army Group". It was at this time the Austin began the preparation of these regional handbooks for issue down to platoon level. "Before D-Day he had accumulated a vast quantity of information on the coast defences of northern France, on the base areas, supplies, formations, and transport systems behind them, and indeed on every aspect of the German defence forces and civilian administration in the 'theatre' Â… and a kind of guidebook was compiled for the invading troops Â…" (p.9). The title Invade Mecum was, Austin's sister recalled, "a clever double take of a booklet given to all new boys at Shrewsbury School - Vade Mecum - which they had to carry with them on all occasions" (Lendrum, "Remembering J.L. Austin", in J.L. Austin on Language). The effectiveness of these cleverly-conceived and -compiled digests, has been widely recognised; "It has been said of him that he directed this vast volume of work 'without ever getting into serious difficulty of any kind', and, more impressively, that 'he was more than anybody responsible for the lifesaving accuracy of D-Day Intelligence'" (Warnock). He left the army in 1945 with the rank of lieutenant-colonel, he was appointed OBE, and received the Croix de Guerre from the French, and was made an officer of the Legion of Merit by the United States. These copies were carried through the invasion of Europe by Sgt. Gilbert Barker, 4199934, who served with the Intelligence Section, 4th Bn Royal Welch Fusiliers, 158 Brigade 1940-4,. and 71 Brigade, July '44, and are accompanied by a small group of his other manuals, including his Field Service Pocket Book containing pamphlets 1-11, Through-way Town Plans of France, Volume 2, Normandy West of the Seine, G.S.G.S. (Misc.) No. 77 (2), The Instructor's Handbook on Fieldcraft and Battle Drill, Extracts from the 4th Bn RWF Standing Orders for W.Os & N.C. Os., and a small pocket German Military Phrase Book. Barker saw action through Normandy, Nijmegen, Arnhem, 's-Hertogenbosch, the Ardennes, ending up in Hamburg. In 2004, as part of the commemoration of the sixtieth anniversary of D-Day, he featured in the BBC Wales documentary Weston's Warriors, with Falkland's veteran Simon Weston, in which a group of RWF comrades retraced the battalion's 1,400 mile campaign across Europe. At the time he said of his experiences; "They were very hard times in 1944-5, because the Germans didn't give up easily, and we seemed to be constantly involved in fighting and skirmishing for almost a year. As an intelligence sergeant, my job was to prepare maps and routes for battles and to collect, collate and distribute information to our forces. It was front-line intelligence and I used to send out men at night to get concealed, and make observations and report back the following night. I always used to tell my men that we didn't want any dead heroes, but unfortunately we lost large numbers of men along the away. It had to be done, but it was an experience which in no way should be repeated".

        [Photo Album]: British Navy Mobile Maintenance Unit India World War II

      India. 1944. Oblong quarto. Measuring 9" x 12". String-tied brown cloth over paper boards. Contains 167 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2" and 6" x 8", with captions. Very good photo album with split board edges, wear and rubbing, with near fine photographs.A photo album kept by a British soldier stationed with Number 12 RAF (Royal Air Force) Mobile Maintenance Unit in India in 1944. The album is extensively captioned with different sections marked by titles written in calligraphy. It begins in Nainital (written "Naini Tal") with photos of the lakes and mountain ranges of the region. One photo of local men reads, "Coolies carrying wood down the mountain side. These men, quite small in stature carry huge loads; supporting themselves with their sticks." Another photo of two uniformed British men being pulled in a cab by local boys reads, "Allen and Dearden in a gharry. No motorized transport is allowed in Naini Tal." A photo of the album's creator in full uniform is captioned, "uniform had to be worn after eight o'clock in the evening." The unit was moved to a more permanent location at the C.O.S.M.O. Barracks (Combined Operations Signal Maintenance Officers) in Bombay at Sassoon Dock. Here the photos show "the crew" in group photos as well as the "coolies" who were employed at the station. The camp is seen here through candids taken of his colleagues lounging in a hammock, posing outside their barracks, and working outside with the caption, "always disobeying to be done." The city of Bombay is captured and laid out on a page titled, "Bombay Scenes," and shows the Taj Mahal Hotel, the Gateway of India, and the University clock tower. A photo of the Bombay Town Hall declares it was used as a "really tip top canteen for Forces." Another photo shows the "Breach Candy" swimming pool which was a "favorite haunt of servicemen." A large 6" x 8.5" photo shows the men enjoying a Sunday morning "orchestral concert" at the Bombay Y.M.C.A. in 1944.The people of India are depicted throughout in photos of "quack medicine women," "a carpet maker" in the midst of his work, and "street barbers," among others. One group of photos shows the marriage of "Mr. and Mrs. K. Emery" among uniformed friends and colleagues followed by the celebration of Christmas in 1944. The group also spent time in Srinagar and Kashmir in 1945, the region shown here in photos of the rivers, houseboats, and temples of the area. A few photos show an Indian pipe band marching through the city with a caption that reads, "the Maharajah has his own Army with a very up to date barracks." One photo of four men raising glasses is captioned, "VJ day, 1945." After victory was announced the unit stayed in India for post-war work throughout the rest of the year. Since this led to more leisure time the photos emphasize sporting activities such as rugby, field hockey, and watching Indian wrestling. The final pages are taken from the ship home and show the Suez Canal and passing a "Yankee Trooper" ship.An extensive collection of photography from a British soldier at the end of the war featuring sightseeing, soldier's barracks, and the camaraderie that close quarters in a war brings out. .

        La Bonne vie".

      1944 - Aquarelle et gouache signée en bas à gauche, (1944), 23.3 x 23.3 cm, encadrée. Christian BERARD (1902-1949) est un peintre, illustrateur, scénographe, décorateur et créateur de costumes français. A partir de 1920, il étudie à l'Académie Ranson, où il suit les cours d'Édouard Vuillard et de Maurice Denis. Il expose ses œuvres pour la première fois en 1925 à la galerie Pierre et collabore par la suite avec Jean-Michel Frank, grande figure de l'Art déco, avec lequel il réalise des panneaux peints et des projets de dessin de tapis dont s'inspireront Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli et Nina Ricci. "Son talent s'exprimera, plus que dans la compagnie des peintres dits du Néo-humanisme, auxquels il fut lié avant 1930, dans la collaboation avec les gens de théâtre, en particulier Louis Jouvet et Boris Kochno, et les poètes parmi lesquels son grand ami Jean Cocteau." Dans ce domaine, il réalisa des costumes et des décors dans une recherche d'adéquation de l'oeuvre et de l'image. Il est le créateur, entre autres, des costumes ou des décors de La Machine infernale de Cocteau (1934), L'École des femmes (1935) La Folle de Chaillot de Jean Giraudoux (1945), Les Bonnes de Jean Genet (1947) et Dom Juan de Molière (1948). Son chef d'oeuvre reste, La Belle et la Bête, film de Jean COCTEAU de 1946. (Bénézit, I, 639). Maquette probable de la couverture de "La Bonne vie" de Galtier-Boissière. Projet non retenu présentant un couple allongé dans le lit conjugal. Petits accidents au cadre. Oeuvre originale

Hammett sent Prudence Whitfield, Pru, a book of e.e.. cummings' poetry and she had responded by asking Hammett's opinion of the poems. Hammett here responds by discussing the poet. "Some of Cummings I like very much; at other times he seems to me just childish, but, after all, he's a pretty good poet at his best and should be permitted to play little games with himself now and then. What I sent you the book for was the last poem in it, which really delights me…." He refers to "If Everything Happens that Can't Be Done." He comments that he can sometimes be heard "muttering, 'there's nothing as something as one,' or, 'forever was never till now'," which are lines from the poem. This poem was first published in cummings' ninth book of poems "1 x 1 Poems," published in 1944. It was no doubt this book that Hammett had sent Pru. He signs, "Much love, darling SDH." Prudence Whitfield, wife of Raoul Whitfield, a fellow "Black Mask" writer and one of Hammett's closest friends. Hammett and Prudence (Pru) shared a wealth of correspondence and had an intimate relationship. Hammett was a veteran of World War I where he contracted Spanish flu and tuberculosis. He subsequently pulled strings in order to join up during World War II after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Hammett spent most of the war in the Aleutian Islands, where he edited a popular Army newspaper "The Adakian," from 1944 to 1945.

        Carrie Chapman Catt. A Biography.

      8vo. Original black cloth, gilt lettering to upper board and spine; pp. 495, frontispiece and illustrations; very good. Provenance: signed to front pastedown by Carrie Chapman Catt and Mary Gray Peck. From the library of George V. Denny, Jr. (1899-1959), broadcaster and host of ?America?s Town Meeting of the Air.? First edition. This is the biography of one of the most important figures in the Amerian women's suffrage movement. Carrie Chapman Catt (1859-1947) succeeded Susan B. Anthony as the head of the National American Woman Suffrage Association in 1900. She developed a two-prong campaign which came to be known as Mrs. Catt?s ?Winning Plan? and which sought passage of a federal suffrage amendment while continuing to push for winning suffrage for women on a state level. Her tact and statesmanship won over Woodrow Wilson and other influential politicians. She cleared the path for the 19th Amendment by leading the NAWSA in a campaign in 1917 to unseat four unsympathetic senators and her life?s work culminated in 1920 with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment giving women the vote. According to NAW, ?To Mrs. Catt more than any other single figure beside Susan B. Anthony, American women owe their right to vote.? (NAW I, pp. 309-313. Wheeler, One Woman, One Vote, pp. 295- 315).

        The Acreage of the Heart.

      Glasgow: William MacLellan, , 1944. Octavo. Original gilt lettered red cloth spine, white boards. With the dust jacket. Colour frontispiece by John Maxwell (repeated on dust jacket). Jacket torn at head of spine (with a little loss), closed-tear across back panel, boards dished. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. Presentation copy from the author, inscribed in Todd's neat hand in brown ink on the front free endpaper: "for Dunstan with love from Ruthven. 21: i (?): 1945"; and below this a holograph poem in two 6-line stanzas, beginning: "A moth caught in the electric flash/ of Europe's dynamos run out of hand". The recipient is almost certainly the American poet Dunstan Thompson (1918-1975), who served in the US Army during the war (Todd was a conscientious objector) and later settled in Britain; three of his poems are anthologised in Masquerade: Queer Poetry in America to the end of World War II. The line "The tall soldier wears the clothes they gave/ reach-me-downs, fitting for the grave" is surely a reference to Thompson's wartime appearance. The poem is apparently unpublished. An excellent association copy.

        Eleanor Roosevelt on the Meaning of Civil Rights

      Washington, D.C. 1944 - Typed Letter Signed, to "Harry," Washington, D.C., February 19, 1944. 2 pp., 6 1/4 x 9 1/4 in. On White House stationery. "Something has to happen to people's souls before they are going to give the rights of citizenship to all the people of our country, regardless of color or creed. That does not mean you have to ask them to dinner. It only means giving them the rights that go with citizenship." Complete Transcript February 19, 1944Dear Harry,I have never been, as you know, opposed to a year of universal service for all young people, boys and girls, nor do I object to a certain amount of military training in that year. I do not want it to be only military training because I consider that wasteful. I quite agree with you that a year of this type of contact would be good for your young people, but it would not solve the colored question because you would find them setting up separate projects just as they are doing in the Army today for colored and white. Something has to happen to people's souls before they are going to give the rights of citizenship to all the people of our country, regardless of color or creed. That does not mean you have to ask them to dinner. It only means giving them the rights that go with citizenship. The right to an equal opportunity for an education. The right to equal justice before the law. The right to obtain a job according to their ability to hold it.The right to participate in the government through the ballot.To change the subject-I have a plea from Margot Haas to help them think up ways of collecting money. I think Mrs. David Levy will help them and Mr. Baruch told Trude yesterday that he was waiting for you to see him again, so I am sure he will give something if you will go to see him again. I would try to get $5000. Evidently they have not been able to pay salaries and I imagine none of them have so much laid aside that this can go on long. Affectionately, [signed] Eleanor Roosevelt [handwritten]: Mrs. Levy practically agreed she would give them a monthly subscription as I do.Historical Background Eleanor Roosevelt was a staunch advocate for equal rights, whether women's rights, international human rights, or civil rights for African Americans. She began her social activism in the early twentieth century by working at the College Settlement in Manhattan's Lower East Side. There, Roosevelt taught physical education to the children of immigrants. It exposed her, and her future husband, to the plight of impoverished industrial workers, and helped open FDR to the possibilities of helping alleviate poverty and social problems.After FDR became President, Eleanor toured the nation, witnessing the effects of the Great Depression on rural areas, especially in African American communities. She then pressured the Subsistence Homestead Administration to allow African Americans into Arthurdale, a planned community designed to create economic self-sufficiency. Her efforts failed, but it highlighted the depths of institutional racism in the United States. Roosevelt lobbied for civil rights inside her husband's administration and to the general public via radio and print media. She fought against lynching and segregation, even resigning her membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution when they barred black opera singer Marian Andersen from performing in Constitution Hall. Instead, Roosevelt arranged for Andersen to sing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and urged media outlets to promote the concert on television and radio.Here, she is addressing the lynchpin of civil rights: equal protection of the laws and equal opportunity in education and the marketplace. These things, she believes, are the responsibility of government, while changing peoples' minds would take a more significant effort. Her tone suggests some familiarity with "Harry," as she addresses him by first name and signs "Affectionately" instead of her usual, more formal letters to "Mr." or "M.

        [An Archive of Eighteen Scripts and Related Documents for:] DUEL IN THE SUN

      [Culver City: RKO, Vanguard Films and Selznick International, 1944. Eighteen items. Quarto and folio. Mimeographed and carbon typescript, printed on rectos only. Bradbound or stapled in stencil-printed and studio wrappers, or self-wrappers. A few pieces a bit used, occasional hand-soiling, a few wrappers snagged or detached at brads, otherwise about very good to near fine. A substantial archive of scripts and related items for the 1947 Selznick adaptation to the screen of Busch's 1944 novel, directed by King Vidor, starring Jennifer Jones, Joseph Cotten, Gregory Peck, Lionel Barrymore, Lillian Gish, Butterfly McQueen and Harry Carey. The film won the award for the Best Overall Production at the Venice Film Festival. Present here are the following items: a) a 22pp treatment by Busch, undated; b) a 30pp. roster of "Physical Descriptions and Characterizations Compiled from the Novel," 14 December 1944; c) a 7pp. inventory list of "Costumes Compiled from Novel," 15 Dec. 1944; d) an RKO Estimating Script, co- written by Busch and Garrett, 24 July 1944, 134 leaves; e) a "Shooting Script," credited solely to Garrett, 20 December 1944, 149 leaves plus lettered inserts, part carbon typescript, part mimeo, with revises on salmon and yellow stock dated into the following year; f) an addenda of ca. 30 lettered and numbered leaves, with mimeographed text on rectos only of salmon and white stock, bradbound in mimeographed wrappers dated 9 October 1945, denoted "Legend [/] Prologue [/] Added Scenes & Retakes"; g) a separate draft, 60,16 leaves, carbon typescript, 4 January 1945, denoted copy #7, attributed to Garrett and Stephen Longstreet, bradbound in mimeographed wrappers, but to all appearances consisting solely of rewrites attributed to Longstreet; h) a "Final Shooting Script," 168 leaves plus many lettered inserts and revises on a rainbow of colored stocks dated into July, attributed solely to Garrett; i) a substantially different "Final Script," 12 January 1946, attributed solely to David O. Selznick, 208 leaves, a few pencil annotations; j) a Dialogue Continuity, 18 November 1946, foliated by reel format, with ms. annotation noting changes made in April 1947; k) a revised Cutting Continuity, foliated in reel format, 12 March 1947; l) a large format editing guide ca. 150 leaves, 12 May 1947, captioned "Foreign Inserts Marked"; l) a spirit duplicated typescript of a Dutch translation (a few leaves detached, torn or frayed); m) a spirit duplicated typescript of a Spanish version; n) Dialogue Cutting Continuity scripts for Trailers #2 & #3, 2pp. and 4pp., 29 May 1947; o) a 4pp. roster of "Censorship Cut," 31 July 1947; and finally p) a "Footage Schedule for All Domestic Release Prints," 10 May, 1947. The film had something of a bumpy development, with Ben Hecht doing some uncredited script doctoring, and several uncredited directors, including Josef von Sternberg, stepping in to help out. Many changes were required to accommodate the various protectors of public morality, and an analysis of the evolution of the film through the succession of these widely disparate scripts (from Busch's treatment and collaborative script through the mammoth 200 pager attributed to Selznick) would likely be informative. Though Busch was himself a productive screenwriter for three decades, with a dozen credited screenplays and uncredited work on others, his final screen credit for this film adaptation of his own novel consisted solely of "Suggested by a Novel by ...." One might assume the earliest draft here, co-written by him, might be closer to the novel than was the end product.

        Gravures sur cuivre de Andre Villeboeuf

      Paris: Galerie Charpentier, 1944. Copy #64 of 195 (Entire edition 240: 35 with a suite of plates, 195 asthis, also there were 10 hors commerce.) 10” x 13 1/4’ Unbound as issued in wrappers, sleeve, slipcase. Printed (by Daragnes) on fine Lana wove paper. with 22 original aquatints by Andre Villeboeuf, 16 of which are full-page and hors-texte. A rare artist book printed during the war, with commentary by Fargue on the state of Europe. André Villeboeuf (1893-1956). Painter and etcher was born in Paris. He studied under Léon Detroy and Jean-Paul Laurens at the Beaux-Arts, Paris, and made his debut at the Salon des Indépendants in 1921, and subsequently became a committee member of the Salon des Tuileries. He was also a member of the Société des Peintres-graveurs français. Aassociated with his friends André Dunoyer de Segonzac, Jean-Baptiste Boussingault, Luc-Albert Moreau, and Louis Valdo-Barbey. Members of this group often exhibited together. André Villeboeuf and Dunoyer de Segonzac collaborated with Édouard Vuillard on the book Cuisine in 1935; each artist contributed six original prints. Villeboeuf illustrated a handful of books with original etchings, including his Surrealist masterpiece Contes fantastiques, published in an edition of 240 copies. These extraordinary aquatints, bitten numerous times to achieve subtle variations of shade, take us on a phantasmagorical journey that owes much to the etchings of Goya, to whose art Villeboeuf was deeply attached.
