      [New York?]; S. J. Stoll. 1944. Original wrappers, hole punched bound in period folder. 4to. 23 pages. 29 cm. First edition. Both a polemic and detailed report, this piece presents moral arguments and statistics proposing the possibility of Jewish settlement in Madagascar. Written three years after the abandonment of the Nazi’s Madagascar resettlement plan. “This is not a rebellion against Zionism. The writer is a Zionist. Nor is it a rebellion against Palestine. The Jewish pioneers have convincingly demonstrated how truly Utopian Palestine can become in Jewish hands. It is a rebellion against a world situation which is not of our making and which cannot be unmade by us, which in the first instance presents us with a “Jewish problem” too enormous to be solved in a dozen Palestines, and then holds Palestine out to us as a solution to that problem, and finally snatches Palestine away from us when we reach out to take it. […] To the total war that is being waged against us on every front there can be but one answer: total Jewish victory. Let us by a single master stroke confound our enemies and rise from slavery and Ghetto and concentration camp to freedom and sovereign statehood and world power. We can do this and must and will do it in Madagascar. And in so doing we shall enjoy the first installment of sweet vengeance: the partial dismemberment of Germany. ” (Page 16) Subjects: Jews -- Relocation -Madagascar. Jews -- Government policy -- Europe. OCLC lists only 1 copy worldwide (Harvard) . Some shelf wear to folder, internally crisp and bright. Very good + condition. Very Scarce and Very Important.

        Russian Ecclesiastical and Decorative Art Objects in the Collection of George R. Hann: Watercolor illustrations by A[ndrey] Avinoff

      n.p, 1944. 2 vols., Folio (13 x 11-1/2 in.). A total of 100 watercolors, each about 5 inches high by 3 inches wide; 84 of them mounted in two volumes, the remainder loose. Two full dark blue calf albums, gilt on upper covers and spines, patterned fabric doublures, linen hinges (to allow the thick volumes to open flat); fine condition. With the bookplate of George Rice Hann and that of the Library of the Westmoreland County Museum of Art in each volume . Mr. Hann's own record of his distinguished collection. The two large albums have typewritten title pages, and consist of original watercolors, inset behind transparent protective coverings on the rectos, with typewritten descriptions of a high order of scholarship on the facing versos, each volume illustrating 42 items: crosses, medallions, mitres, lamps, censers and other liturgical items, as well as silver, Imperial china table services, a silver spade used by Alexander II in laying the foundation of the Odessa City Park, and other relics of a non-ecclesiastical sort. Andrey Arvinoff (1884-1949), a Russian artist who emigrated to America after the Bolshevik revolution, specialized in landscapes and portraits; he also had a successful career in commercial art. He was noted for his imaginative and skillful detail, art critics praising his "purity of line that can come from only the most delicate perception" and observing "like the other Russians who have come here, he loves to use details in wholesome quantities." In the commercial art field, his nephew Alex Shoumatoff notes in the family chronicle Russian Blood, "his renditions of everyday household articles attracted attention as works of art." In 1922 he was recruited by the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh to be a curator of entomology and in 1926 became the museum's director. In addition, he taught courses on Oriental and Russian art at the University of Pittsburgh. He was the ideal artist to depict George Hann's Russian objects, and his watercolors, done over pencil, are careful but not fussy; where, as is often the case, the objects are set with precious stones, his drawings shine with a radiant sparkle. A SPLENDID, UNIQUE RECORD OF ART TREASURES WHICH IS ITSELF A WORK OF ART. Accompanying these volumes is the catalogue of an exhibition of Russian Icons and other works of art from Mr. Hann's collection held at Carnegie Institute in 1944. It is finely bound in dark brown calf, gilt device on upper cover; apart from a little wear to extremities, it is in fine condition, and displays some of the items illustrated in the two albums

      New York: Simon & Schuster, 1944. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good, lacking the dustwrapper. Margaret Bourke-White. Illustrated with photographs by Bourke-White. This copy INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author to famous pilot Eddie Rickenbacker on a large piece of paper pasted to the front endpaper: "For my good friend/Eddie Rickenbacker/with all best/Margaret Bourke-White." Medal of Honor-winning World War I aviator Eddie Rickenbacker first gained fame in the formative years of auto racing as a driver. Before owning and operating the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, he participated in some of the first 500-mile races held there finishing in tenth place in 1914. Rickenbacker flew a total of 300 combat hours, reportedly more than any other U.S. pilot in World War I, and his 26 victories as a pilot constituted an American record that stood until World War II. After the war, he started an unsuccessful automobile company, but his most lasting business endeavor was his lifelong leadership of Eastern Air Lines which Rickenbacker transformed from a small airline to a major international transportation company. A gritty account by the first female journalist to be attached to the U.S. Army in World War II of her experiences with the Fifth Army during the Italian Campaign. The only other copy of this title we have seen that was signed was also on a piece of paper pasted in. It is likely that Bourke-White was "in the field" upon publication and unable to sign the book itself.

      1944. London / Toronto: William Heinemann, (1944). Original dark blue cloth, with dust jacket. First English Edition of one of Maugham's major novels.~W. Somerset Maugham turns to a religious theme and tells the story of a young American's quest for a faith. In Larry Darnell he has created one of his most radiant and appealing characters. Darnell, impelled by what he has seen of death in the war, renounces his fiancee, Isabel Bradley, and the opportunity for wealth and position to seek knowledge and a faith above and beyond human mortality. His search takes him all over the world and reaches its climax in India, where he attains the experience of the Absolute... It is the story of a man who achieves the absolute purification of his soul, superhuman wisdom, and an impregnable faith which gives him power over the material world. As a record of the journey of the human spirit, it stands with OF HUMAN BONDAGE as one of the great English novels of our time. [from the American dust jacket]~The English edition was preceded by the American edition by about four months. This is a near-fine copy of this cheaply-produced wartime book (covers slightly dusty, faint bend in the flexible front board); the jacket is very near-fine as well (very minor soil, minor ruffling at the spine-head; the jacket's spine has very little of the usual fading).

        After-Dinner Story

      Philadelphia: Lippincott, 1944. Near Fine in a Very Good- dustjacket. Bound in full green cloth. Both the spine and the front board are stamped in brown and black. Pale green endpapers. 210pps. First Edition Stated. There is mild bumping and rubbing to the extremities and the pages, though vaguely yellowed, are immaculate: no apparent reading wear and no previous owner's markings. The binding is clean, square, and sound. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has a loss of 1/4" - 1/2" at either spine-end. Smaller chips at the tips (and one amid the spine), rubbing wear along the gutters, and modest general edgewear with some creases and closed tears. A few of these flaws are tape-repaired from the inside. The original price is intact. Overall, an excellent copy of this difficult title in a flawed, though colorful dustjacket. The original price (2.00) is intact. ".In these six stories William Irish stresses the almost unbearable horror of man's inhumanity to man, the sheer awfulness of fate's perverse timing, the futility of man's struggle against his appointed destiny. 'After-Dinner Story', the title story of the volume, and 'The Night Reveals' both demonstrate man's vain striving against a personal and malevolent fate. In 'An Apple A Day' is told the story of a man who, desperately needing ten thousand dollars, unwittingly throws away five times the sum. 'Marihuana' emphasizes the loathsomeness of the cheap and evil girl who sets a hopped-up armed murderer loose in the city. Also includes 'Rear Window' and 'Murder-Story'."

        Concept Design for Cadillac

      1944. Pencil and watercolor on drafting paper. Lower right corner of page has been skilfully replaced. Does not affect images. 15 1/4 x 21 inches. Framed. 22 3/4 x 28 7/8 inches. Handsome proposed design for a post-war Cadillac The license plate reads "GM 1944" raising interesting questions, since, as everyone knows, virtually no new cars were produced during the high armament production years of World War II, and certainly not pretty new dark pink ones. The car portrayed here does however anticipate very much the look of early fifties' vehicles, if not necessarily Cadillacs. And bright colors certainly would catch on in a way they had not before the war. Note the 1930's Cadillac emblem on the front grille, which was changed when auto production actually re-commenced.
