        Guido Crepax per Oberdan Chiesa. 29.1.1944 - 29.1.1987. .

      A cura del Comitato Permanente Antifascista del Comune di Rosignano Marittimo. Cartella editoriale in modesta carta bianca contenente quattro tavole di cm 50 x 70 (il foglio), incise su fogli della "Gaphis Arte Livorno". Nel figurato, sempre come parte dell'inciso, le tavole recano il marchietto - firma entro cerchietto "Guido Crepax '80". Al margine bianco inferiore, fuori dalla figurazione, le tavole sono tutte numerate e firmate a lapis di mano dall'artista (in basso a sinistra, 35/100 - in basso a destra, Guido Crepax). La cartella è stata realizzata per il Comune di Rosignano Marittimo in occasione dei quarantaquattro anni dalla morte di Oberdan Chiesa, a cui il grande disegnatore e fumettista italiano ha dedicato quattro tavole. La prima tavola ritrae il combattente antifascista in Algeria, nel settembre del 1936, fino al suo raggiungimento del fronte a Pena Ustan, con la Colonna Libertà Catalana, e al suo entrare come artigliere nella brigata internazionale franco - belga. La seconda tavola lo ritrae a Valencia, nel 1936; segue il ritorno in Italia, l'arresto e la detenzione in carcere, a Livorno. Le tavole tre e quattro sono rispettivamente relative all'attentato e all'esecuzione. La terza tavola è dedicata all'azione partigiana che costò la vita a un carabiniere a Rosignano Solvay, e per la quale Oberdan Chiesa subì la rappresaglia da parte dei nazi - fascisti che lo fucilarono sulla spiaggia di Rosignano il 29 gennaio 1944 (a quest'ultimo episodio è dedicata la quarta tavola). La cartella è interessata da tracce di umido, le tavole, tranne un leggerissimo foxing marginale a due di queste, sono tutte ben impresse e in buono stato di conservazione.

        Kristus: 32 drevorytu k Novemu Zakonu [Christ: 32 Woodcuts of the New Testament]

      Prague: Tiskem a nakladem Noviny, 1944. First trade edition. Hardcover. Fine. SIGNED. Octavo [24 cm] in boards over cloth spine, with title in woodcut on front board. Fading to spine; very light wear; interior is clean and bright. Signed by Bochorakova-Dittrichova on title page. Introduction by Czech woodcut artist Frantisek Kubista. Kristus is a wordless novel of the life of Christ, from the Annunciation to the Resurrection. Helena Bochorakova-Dittrichova (1894-1980) was the first female wordless novelist and the only woman to work in this medium during its heyday. She was born in the Moravian region of what is now the Czech Republic and spent most of her life in Brno, the Moravian capital. She graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Prague and in 1923 received a government scholarship to study printmaking in Paris. Bochorakova-Dittrichova's unpublished wordless novel Malí ka Na Cestách [The Artist on Her Journey] recounts this period in her life. In Paris, she first encountered the wordless novels of Flemish artist Frans Masereel, the originator of the form, and was inspired to create her own. Over the course of her long career, Bochorakova-Dittrichova published several wordless novels, along with travelogues and historical works. She also worked as a printmaker and illustrator, and was highly regarded in her native land, though largely unknown elsewhere. This changed in 2014, when the National Museum of Women in the Arts held an exhibition of her work entitled "The First Woman Graphic Novelist: Helena Bochorakova-Dittrichova," and this important artist finally began to gain global recognition. Her work, however, is still not widely available.

        Aftermath of a Lengthy Rejection Slip (in Story Magazine, March-April 1944)

      Story Magazine, New York 1944 - A beautiful copy of the first documented publication of Charles Bukowski. In Vol. XXIV, No. 106 (March-April 1944) of Story Magazine, "The Magazine of the Short Story", founded by Whit Burnett and Martha Foley in 1931. Printed wraps, 9 1/4 x 6 7/8 inches. Very good --- near fine (mild edgewear; mild sunning, spine; binding tight and pages clean). From Beat Scene/Transit Magazine interview by Kevin Ring (1994): Ring: "Can you recall the first thing you had published and how you felt about it?" Bukowski: "No, I can't recall. Can remember my first major publication, a short story in Whit Burnett's and Martha Foley's Story magazine, 1944. I had been sending them a couple of short stories a week for maybe a year and a half. The story they finally accepted was mild in comparison to the others. I mean in terms of content and style and gamble and exploration and all that. Got another story accepted about that time in Carese Crosby's portfolio and after that, I packed it in. I threw away all the stories and concentrated upon drinking. I didn't feel that the publishers were ready and that although I was ready, I could be readier and I was also disgusted with what I read as accepted front-line literature. So I drank and became one of the best drinkers anywhere, which takes some talent also." The story begins: "I walked around outside and thought about it. It was the longest one I ever got. Usually they only said, "Sorry, this did not quite make the grade" or "Sorry, this didn't quite work in." Or more often, the regular printed rejection form. But this was the longest, the longest ever. It was from my story "My Adventures in Half a Hundred Rooming Houses." I walked under a lamppost, took the little slip out of my pocket and reread it -Dear Mr. Bukowski: Again, this is a conglomeration of extremely good stuff and other stuff so full of idolized prostitutes, morning-after vomiting scenes, misanthropy, praise for suicide etc. that it is not quite for a magazine of any circulation at all. This is, however, pretty much a saga of a certain type of person and in it I think you've done an honest job. Possibly we will print you sometime, but I don't know exactly when. That depends on you. Sincerely yours, Whit Burnett." "The following note accompanied Charles Bukowski's first published story, in the March-April 1944 issue of Story: Charles Bukowski was born in Andernach, Germany in 1920. His father was California-born, of Polish parentage, and served with the American Army of Occupation in the Rhineland, where he met the author's mother. He was brought to America at the age of two. He attended Los Angeles City College for a couple of years and in the two and one-half years since then he has been a clerk in the post office, a stockroom boy for Sears Roebuck, a truck-loader nights in a bakery. He is currently working as a package-wrapper and box-filler in the cellar of a ladies' sportswear shop." "In Bukowski's 1975 novel Factotum, he describes the experience of his first publication (calling Story's Whit Burnett "Clay Gladmore"): "Gladmore returned many of my things with personal rejections. True, most of them weren't very long but they did seem kind and they were very encouraging.So I kept him busy with four or five stories a week." On the subject of his first sale, Bukowski wrote, "I got up from the chair still holding my acceptance slip. MY FIRST. Never had the world looked so good, so full of promise." Upon seeing the story in print, however, Bukowski's joy disappeared. "Aftermath" had been placed in the end notes, and he felt Burnett had published it only as a curiosity. Feeling humiliated, Bukowski never again submitted anything to Story." (1722RO069) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        HENRY V. (1944)

      Two Cities Films / Eagle-Lion 1944 - Vintage original 27 x 41" (68 x 105 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Leslie Banks, Laurence Olivier, Robert Newton, Renee Asherson, dir: Laurence Olivier; Two Cities Films / Eagle-Lion. The film was first released in the UK by Eagle-Lion in November 1944. Olivier's directorial debut was commissioned by the British government to make this lavish Technicolor film as a patriotic morale booster. It emphasized the parts of Shakespeare's work which portrayed the glory of war, played down the bloody side and, by omission of sections of the original play, showed the character of Henry in a favorable light. Still, it is considered to be one of the finest filmings of a Shakespeare work. This is the first theatrical poster for the United States release of June 1946 through United Artists. The release qualified the film for the 1946 Academy Awards. Olivier was presented with a special Oscar for bringing Shakespeare to the screen, and the film was nominated for various awards including for Best Actor and Best Picture. There are a couple of different known printings of this poster -- this one, which has no date (there is a number "48" next to the name of the printer, but we think that refers to a postal zone), and another, which has a copyright of 1947 in the lower left corner. Since this poster was printed by a company not otherwise known to us for producing movie posters, we surmise it's from the film's very rare first run, where the film was being shown in legitimate theaters and not cinemas. We have never encountered another copy. Folded, with various kinds of fold wear and chipping, which could be easily addressed with minor conservation, VERY GOOD.

In den kommenden Wochen und Monaten müsst ihr im Generalgouvernement einen stählernen Block der Geschlossenheit schmieden. Von euch muss das Gebet aufflammen: D e u t s c h l a n d m u s s s i e g e n , D e u t s c h l a n d m u s s l e b e n !") - Kalendarium - Leitwort des SS-Obergruppenführers und Generals der Polizei Krüger - Heimat im Osten - Große Gegenwart (Eines galiziendeutschen Infanteristen Weg von der kleinen zur großen Heimat, von Kriegsberichter Emil Nasarski / Ausspruch von Carl von Clausewitz / Volksdeutsche in der Sommerschlacht, von SS-Kriegsberichter Dr R.

Wie im Vorjahr haben wir uns bemüht, allen etwas zu geben. Den Volksgenossen, die aus den Gauen des Reiches herkamen, um in der deutschen Verwaltungs-und Parteiarbeit, im Rahmen des Wirtschaftsausbaus oder als Soldaten und Männer von SS und Polizei hier ihre Pflicht zu tun. Möge der Kalender dazu dienen, ihre Kenntnis von diesem Raum, seinen Menschen und Problemen zu vertiefen. Den deutschen Menschen, die hier seit Generationen lebten, kämpften und die deutsche Stellung hielten, möge er durch die Kunde von deutscher Leistung in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart das Vertrauen in die eigene Kraft und die Kraft der völkischen Gemeinschaft stärken. Der Bauer und die Hausfrau finden wieder viele nützliche Hinweise und Ratschläge, und auch für den Feierabend nach des Tages Mühe und Last es gesorgt. Die Blätter des Kalendarium führen uns in Städte, die gleich Krakau an und vor des Reiches Grenzen eine geschichtliche Aufgabe als Vorposten deutscher Kraftausstrahlung zu erfüllen hatten und so für die Weite des deutschen Lebensraumes künden. Ein deutscher Maler aus Ungarn, Hercz-Pereli, hat uns dazu einprägsame Zeichnungen gegeben . . . Im heimatskundlichen Teil haben wir diesmal das Gebiet der mittelalterlichen deutschen Kolonisation besonders berücksichtigt. Von der Bewährung volksdeutscher Männer an den Fronten unseres Entscheidungskampfes wird im Abschnitt "Große Gegenwart" erzählt Ein besonderes Augenmerk haben wir diesmal der Sippenforschung zugewendet und uns entschlossen, durch ein Preisausschreiben das Interesse der Deutschen des Generalgouvernements auf diese Arbeit zu lenken. Gerade die Beschäftigung mit der eigenen Herkunft stärkt das Gefühl deutscher Volksverbundenheit und zeigt jedem den Platz, den er in der großen deutschen Blutsgemeinschaft einzunehmen hat" - Deutsches / Drittes Reich, Großdeutschland im 2.
