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

      Prague: Tiskem a nakladem Noviny, 1944. Limited Edition. Hardcover. Fine. SIGNED. Octavo [24 cm] in grey cloth with woodcut title in black on front board. Light discoloration to cloth, else boards are crisp and unworn; interior is clean and bright. Signed by Bochorakova-Dittrichova on title page. Handnumbered 16 of an edition limited to thirty signed copies. Introduction by Czech woodcut artist Frantisek Kubista. The illustrations were printed directly onto the pages; impressions left by the woodcut blocks are visible on the verso of each leaf.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 Bochorakova-Dittrichova's unpublished wordless novel Malí ka Na Cestách [The Artist on Her Journey] recounts this period in her life.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.

        Main Street After Dark (Archive of concept art sketches for advertisements promoting the film's original release)

      Beverly Hills, CA: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer [MGM], 1944. Collection of 14 original preliminary advertising concept art sketches for the release of sultry 1944 B-picture. Executed variously in graphite, charcoal, and gouache on onion skin paper, each leaf tipped on to white paper stock at the corners, some with notations at the margins. The collection displays a variety of styles and themes, with alternatively seductive and paranoid imagery and tag lines, providing broad insight into the over-archiving advertising campaign of a smaller film at a major studio. Sheets 8 x 11.5 inches to 11 x 15 inches. Very Good or better with faint vertical and diagonal creasing to some pieces and only occasional minor splashes, general signs of light use as expected. Grant, pp. 397-398. Spicer, p. 414.

        Concept Design for Cadillac

      1944 - Pencil and watercolor on drafting paper. Lower right corner of page has been skilfully replaced. Does not affect images. 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.

      England. From the library and personal archive of irish photographer John Minihan.. England, 1944 - 1987. Octavo. c. 400 pages Original Softcover. From the library and personal archive of irish photographer John Minihan. John Francis Alexander Heath-Stubbs OBE (9 July 1918 – 26 December 2006) was an English poet and translator, known for his verse influenced by classical myths, and the long Arthurian poem Artorius (1972). Heath-Stubbs was born in London, and educated at Bembridge School and Queen's College, Oxford. He co-edited Eight Oxford Poets in 1941, with Sidney Keyes and Michael Meyer, and helped edit Oxford Poetry in 1942–43. Held the Gregory Fellowship of Poetry at Leeds University (1952–55) and he had professorships in Alexandria (1955–58) and Ann Arbor, Michigan (1960-61). He taught at the College of St Mark and St John in Chelsea (1962–72), as well as at Merton College, Oxford for twenty years from 1972. He lived for a time in the 1950s at Zennor in Cornwall. Translated, among others, Sappho, Horace, Catullus, Hafiz, Verlaine, and most notably Giacomo Leopardi. He was a representative figure of British poetry in the early 1950s, editing the poetry anthology Images of Tomorrow (1953) and, with David Wright, the Faber Book of Twentieth Century Verse, among others. He was elected to the RSL in 1954, awarded the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry 1973, and appointed OBE in 1989. Although afflicted by blindness from the 1960s, and completely without sight from 1978, he continued to write almost to the end. Ibycus: A Poem by John Heath-Stubbs, documentary film was made by the Chilean director Carlos Klein in 1997. His diction was strong, yet subtle. Running through his work, like that of most romantic poets, was a nostalgia for "classicism". He was consciously literary, and his work was elaborately wrought rather than spontaneous, so it was not the kind of poetry likely to have mass appeal. However, his devotion to the craft of poetry makes his work impressive. Few writers of his time had a deeper knowledge of the English language, or cared for it more devotedly. (Wikipedia)

        Rare War time Autograph Letter Signed to Martha Gellhorn, 6 separate 8vo pp of tan graph paper, August 6, 1944. This letter is one of a handful of surviving Hemingway letters to Gellhorn. According to her son Sandy Gellhorn, some months before her death in 1998, Martha burned most of her correspondence files, including her letters from Hemingway. Sandy was able to interrupt the process, saving this letter from destruction

      Very Good. Hemingway writes to Martha Gellhorn who was stationed at the time as a war correspondent with the Allied forces in Normandy but was on assignment in Italy. Hemingway was at Mont. St. MIchel recuperating from injuries in a jeep accident caused by a German shell. In part, "Am so glad you are happy and having a fine time and getting some sun. Am sure you will get good stories too and anyway living and being happy is better than stories. Please take everything I say straight and do not read in hidden meanings nor insults...Hung around with some flying pals a while then hooked up with an Infantry division... We took 6 SS Panzer bastard prisoner Aug. 2 -- You may have seen something about it in Aug 5 Stars and Striped...Day before yest while in advance of infantry I got knocked down by a tank shell. enemy tank then fired on us and on me playing dead by road with machine gun. threw dirt all over head and cut leaves from hedge all over helmet. They also had at least 2 machine pistols in cross fire on each side of road. Two Germans crawled up to hedge and could hear them talking. Was quite a time...If we had not run into that place first they would have killed many people. Am very good at imitating a dead [man] under such circumstances...Think instead of piece will write short stories of life in [the infantry] Division. Have good ones and will write them and cable them...The stuff is too wonderful to write as journalism...So I will just write the stories as well as I can. Please do not think I have been being a crazy. Have been working very close to the bull but everything have done has been useful...I am going to stay with it [the Division]. I don't care about being the first into any place nor about 'the story'. Would rather be with those who do the fighting in some useful capacity and then go home finally and write book & be buried in a good country like France which I have always loved very much anyway and see and love better than ever did before. Only hope I can write as well about it as I should...." He signs, "E. Hemingway, War Correspondent." Hemingway was a war correspondent for "Colliers" and was embedded with the US 4th Division that landed on the Normandy beaches on June 6, 1944. He stayed with the division as they marched into Paris to liberate it from the Germans on August 25, 1944. As mentioned in this letter that if he had to die, he would want to be "buried in a good country like France which I have always loved very much anyway...." This letter was written toward the end of Gellhorn and Hemingway's marriage. Hemingway had already met his fourth wife, Mary Welsh. Hemingway mentions some friends in this letter. Buddy North (Henry W.R. "Buddy" North) was one of the owners of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circle. According to "Dear Papa, Dear Hotch: The Correspondence of Ernest Hemingway and A. E. Hotchner," Buddy and Hemingway "caroused together in London during World War II...."  Hemingway says that Buddy North is "somewhere around but have not seen him." Capa is Robert Capa, the war photographer and photojournalist who was the only photojournalist at the landing at Omaha Beach on D-Day. He, too, worked for "Colliers" and then for "Life" magazine. He was a good friend of Hemingway and Gellhorn whom Hemingway met during the Spanish Civil War.  A Youtube video from "atelierdesarchives.com" shows footage of Hemingway and Capa on Mont St. Michel in August of 1944 and in this letter Hemingway states, "Capa is here now.".

        Ficciones

      Buenos Aires, 1944 First edition. One of 3000 copies. A nice, near fine copy and not often found like this. It's a fragile publication and doesn't have the muscle of the similarly styled Ulysses to withstand the punishment of time. Rubbing along front joint, a small water spot on the spine, little stains here and there, and the super cheap paper stock has browned per usual. Faults notwithstanding, this is a money copy. It's bright and unrepaired - well worth a space on the shelf.The Argentine's mind contorting collection of short stories - a mash up of myth, history, fantasy, parables, mysticism, and philosophy. Human consciousness has levels of malleability and multi-dimensionality that we largely ignore. This is a hobbyhorse of mine via meditation, but drugs will also take you to similar places in a much more ill advised manner. Reading Borges is yet another alternative to unlocking our steel traps and beyond that, he's simply an important and influential writer.

      1944. England, 1944 - 1987. Octavo. c. 400 pages Original Softcover. From the library and personal archive of irish photographer John Minihan. John Francis Alexander Heath-Stubbs OBE (9 July 1918 – 26 December 2006) was an English poet and translator, known for his verse influenced by classical myths, and the long Arthurian poem Artorius (1972). nHeath-Stubbs was born in London, and educated at Bembridge School and Queen's College, Oxford. He co-edited Eight Oxford Poets in 1941, with Sidney Keyes and Michael Meyer, and helped edit Oxford Poetry in 1942–43. Held the Gregory Fellowship of Poetry at Leeds University (1952–55) and he had professorships in Alexandria (1955–58) and Ann Arbor, Michigan (1960-61). He taught at the College of St Mark and St John in Chelsea (1962–72), as well as at Merton College, Oxford for twenty years from 1972. He lived for a time in the 1950s at Zennor in Cornwall. Translated, among others, Sappho, Horace, Catullus, Hafiz, Verlaine, and most notably Giacomo Leopardi. He was a representative figure of British poetry in the early 1950s, editing the poetry anthology Images of Tomorrow (1953) and, with David Wright, the Faber Book of Twentieth Century Verse, among others. He was elected to the RSL in 1954, awarded the Queen's Gold Medal for Poetry 1973, and appointed OBE in 1989. Although afflicted by blindness from the 1960s, and completely without sight from 1978, he continued to write almost to the end. Ibycus: A Poem by John Heath-Stubbs, documentary film was made by the Chilean director Carlos Klein in 1997.nHis diction was strong, yet subtle. Running through his work, like that of most romantic poets, was a nostalgia for "classicism". He was consciously literary, and his work was elaborately wrought rather than spontaneous, so it was not the kind of poetry likely to have mass appeal. However, his devotion to the craft of poetry makes his work impressive. Few writers of his time had a deeper knowledge of the English language, or cared for it more devotedly. (Wikipedia)
