Voir photos. JE VOUS HAIS ! 150 pages, 500 documents . magasine publié le 15 avril 1944 Maginifique reliure récente "Maurice-Yvan Sicard est né au Puy-en-Velay dans la Haute-Loire. Sa famille est d'origine paysanne et de tradition militaire (sa mère était enseignante et son père, capitaine dans un régiment d'infanterie, est mort au champ d'honneur pendant la guerre de 1914-1918). Pupille de la Nation1, il arrive à Paris à l'âge de dix ans et fait ses études au lycée Condorcet. Un temps professeur de français, il se lance ensuite dans le journalisme et collabore au magazine Voilà et au quotidien Le Petit Journal. Il fonde en 1932 l'hebdomadaire Le Huron, classé à gauche. Il est aussi le rédacteur en chef des hebdomadaires Germinal et Spectateur. On trouve aussi des articles sous sa signature dans le bimensuel "Lectures du soir" en 1931.Engagement politique[modifier | modifier le code] Le futur écrivain Saint-Paulien est originaire de l'extrême gauche antifasciste sans être passé par le parti communiste. Le Huron est une feuille pacifiste d'ultra-gauche, qui diffuse un message antibourgeois et révolutionnaire2. En 1933, Sicard est violemment antinazi. Son journal traite Hitler de fantoche3, dénonce les atrocités commises par les chemises brunes4 et condamne cette odieuse régression de l'antisémitisme5. Violemment hostile aux « morveux de l'Action française », aux « cafards des Jeunesses patriotes », méfiant à l'égard de tout rapprochement avec la bourgeoisie6.

BRETTON WOODS]. - [FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE BRETTON WOODS SYSTEM]
Washington, U. S. Treasury, 1944. 8vo. Bound with the original wrappers in later half cloth. White library numbering to top left corner of front boards and front wrapper. "Withdrawn" stamp to front wrapper. Soiling to top right corner of front wrapper affecting first 20 leaves. Front wrapper creased. X, 88 pp. First announcement of the establishment of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) at Bretton Woods in July 1944 - the greatest, most powerful and successful international economic agreement ever made. 44 Allied nations led by The United States and Great Britain sought to rebuild the international economic system while World War II was still going on. The Bretton Woods system obligated each country to adopt a monetary policy that maintained the exchange rate by tying its currency to the U.S. dollar and the ability of the IMF to bridge temporary imbalances of paymentsThe formation of the Bretton Woods system is by many considered the main factor in the economic prosperity experienced in Western Europe and the USA during the 50ies and 60ies thus shaping the world economy for decades. Regardless of the fact that some of the basic traits of the system (the gold standard) was abandoned in 1971 - usually referred to as the Nixon Shock - it is still the most influential economic event in the post war-years, if not the entire 20th century. "The United States and Great Britain took the lead in constructing the postwar international monetary institutions, with John Maynard Keynes and Harry Dexter White drawing up rival designs for the new system.

Conditions de vente Expédition Paiement À propos de la librairie Visitez notre boutique 20545 Simone de BEAUVOIR Pyrrhus et Cinéas Paris, Gallimard, Coll. "Les Essais" XV, (septembre) 1944. 1 vol. (120 x 190 mm) de 123 pp. et [2] ff. Broché sous étui-chemise, à toutes marges. Édition originale (pas de grands papiers). Exemplaire imprimé du service de presse. Envoi signé à Maurice Blanchot. Premier essai, et première œuvre d'importance, où Beauvoir cite Heidegger et conclut qu'un être humain est toujours beaucoup plus que ce qu'il est à un moment donné : « [...] en un sens, un homme est toujours tout ce qu'il a à être, puisque, comme le montre Heidegger, c'est son existence qui définit son essence ». Ce sera la source même du Deuxième Sexe, où cette idée apparaît en relation avec la féminité, dans la formulation bien connue : « On ne naît pas femme, on le devient ». La féminité n'est ni une substance, ni une essence, comme le souligne Beauvoir à plusieurs reprises dans son livre, c'est un « devenir ». Ce premier essai paraît un an après L'Invitée, le premier roman de Simone de Beauvoir. Maurice Blanchot en avait donné, dans le Journal des débats de décembre 1943, une longue critique où il voyait, à la suite de La Nausée ou des Mouches, « une illustration des analyses que Sartre a consacrées à notre 'existence pour autrui' et qui éclairent, d'une manière admirablement claire, l'un des drames les plus noués, les plus obscurs de la réalité humaine ». Beauvoir et Sartre publieront, entre 1946 et 1952, quatre textes considérables de Blanchot dans Les Temps Modernes : « Le paradox … [Click Below for Full Description]

(France): Ceux de la Résistance, 1944. Samson. Folio. (57)pp. A children's picture book that follows two demons who escape Hell, help a battalion of French Forces of the Interior (F.F.I.), and make trouble for the Nazis. Eventually the demons and their companion, a small flame, assist the F.F.I. in the liberation of a small town (a caption at the bottom of the last page of the story states "Moulins, le 4 octobre 1944," but it is unclear whether this note refers to the town liberated or the place the volume was printed). The F.F.I. refers to French resistance fighters, as opposed to the regular Free French forces, in the later stages of World War II. This present volume was published by the Ceux de la Resistance, one of eight major resistance movements that made up France's National Council of the Resistance. This edition was issued for Christmas 1944, after an autumn spent successfully liberating much of France from Axis forces. Bound in quarter-cloth with the demons playing on the Cross of Lorraine and a victory "V" on the upper cover. General wear to edges, corners bumped, boards a bit bowed, else a near fine copy of a scarce book, especially remarkable for having been published by a group more given to pamphlets and newsletters.

DAMASKINOS
of Athens, showing him standing three quarter length, three quarter face turned to the viewer's right, in clerical dress with his staff in his right hand, signed, dated and inscribed on the mount in Greek to "Commander M. McMullen with warm good wishes, Archbishop of Athens Damaskinos", 9" x 6¾" on photographer's card mount 15¾" x 11¾", Athens, 5th March Damaskinos was Archbishop during the terrible German Occupation. Fearless, he issued the only protest of any occupied European Country against the deportation of Jews. In October 1944 the Germans withdrew from Greece and the British (now nominally in charge of all armed units in the country) entered Athens, to support the National Government of George Papandreou (no relation). King George II remained in Cairo, pending a plebiscite. This photograph is from the period when British forces under General Scobie were still in Greece to support the Government. A lull in the Civil War that followed the Liberation was achieved in February 1945, when the largest resistance organization, EAM-ELAS, dominated by the communists, was in theory disarmed. Not till the plebiscite of September 1946 was Damaskinos able to recall the King.

Richard OHASHI
V.p.: ca. 1944-1946. Condition: Album boards a bit bowed and rubbed, extremities slightly faded, else Very Good or better overall. Oblong octavo photo album (15x22cm.); full green gilt-tooled morocco, upper cover lettered in gilt "Richard Ohashi / CK 442 Inf. / Italia," gilt-ruled spine in 5 compartments; [36] leaves containing 91 mounted and pasted-in photographs (83 snapshots, eight enlargements) and four commercial photographic postcards. 61 additional loose photographs (various sizes; seven in color) and 13 service medals, pins, and patches. Photo album of a member of the 442nd Infantry Regiment, notable during WW2 for being one of the most decorated units of its size and comprised almost entirely of Americans of Japanese descent at a time when most "Nisei" were held in internment camps. The present collection chronicles the wartime experiences of Richard B. Ohashi (1925-2015), of Cheyenne, Wisconsin, member of the 3rd Battalion, Company K. Enlistment records indicate that Ohashi entered service in August, 1944, with the majority of the present photographs taken from 1945 to early 1946. With the exception, perhaps, of one destroyed German tank, none of the present images depict the grueling combat for which the Regiment was so highly decorated. Explaining why there is so little photographic documentation of the 442nd, Susumu Ito, another member of the Regiment, known for his prolific wartime photography, explained that "We had orders not to have cameras" (Popular Photography Magazine, August 21, 2015). As a result, most of the photographs appear to have been taken durin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott, 1944. First printing of the First Edition of Garrison-Morton 4404.02 (there are several reprints, some of which also appeared in 1944). Frontispiece, xvii, 734 pp; 597 figs. Original cloth, large 8vo. Name written along vertical edge of pages (in thin ink but fairly large letters), else Very Good, without dust jacket. 'Surgery of the Hand was an immediate and outstanding success, and established for all time this new and major school of surgery. The first edition, published in 1944, contained 734 pages; the third and last edition appeared in 1956 and had grown to 1,079 pages. New sections on ischaemic contracture in the hand and on the treatment of the rheumatic hand revealed Bunnell's active and searching mind even after he had passed his seventieth year. This book has probably had more influence and done more good than any other single work on surgery in the last fifty years' (R. G. P., 'In Memoriam: Sterling Bunnell, 1882-1957', Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Vol. 40B, No. 1, Feb. 1958, pp. 145-6). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Durand, Paris. 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 r … [Click Below for Full Description]

Seul ouvrage paru avec un texte de Lucien Guitry et un autre de son fils Sacha, ici consacrés à leur ÒidoleÓ commune : Molière, qui, comme eux, fut d'abord comédien avant d'être auteur et metteur en scène. On peut penser qu'avec cet ouvrage exceptionnel, Sacha Guitry a voulu rendre un hommage tout à fait particulier à son père, Lucien, qu'il met ici comme premier auteur ; c'est lui, en effet, qui a formé Sacha et malgré leur brouille de 13 ans, l'a encouragé, soutenu, défendu et admiré. Dos de la couverture fendillé soigneusement restauré, bel exemplaire de cet exceptionnel hommage à Molière.

1944. An absolutely fascinating 174 page journal written by Alex Taub, Chief Engineer for the Foreign Economic Administration in 1944. Signed and inscribed by Alex Taub on the front endpaper. We have been unable to locate another copy of this journal, possibly the only copy in existence. Alex Taub was a very eloquent and expressive writer, and reading this journal takes you back in time and makes you feel as if you are experiencing this wonderful journey alongside him. I believe that the journal could be successfully published or even turned into a history television special program. It is that well written and has such exceptional content. Chronicles his 41 day trip to China from November 9, 1944 to December 19, 1944. For months preceding the trip, the engineers of the Foreign Economic Administration in Washington D. C. had been engaged in the development of a guide to the industrialization of China. "It was an effort to set forth how China would improve its ability to feed, house, clothe, medicate, and educate its people". He meets with many important people including Generalissimo Chiang Kai Shek, and describes meeting him in detail (pages 88-91). Other notable names include Foreign Minister Soong, Mr. Liu, Shelley W. Husing, F. T. Fee, S. C. Wang, Dr. C. C. Chen, Dr. Ong Wen Hau, Hy Hodes, Minister Tseng Yung Fu, K. P. Hu, Don Nelson, Bill Stanton, and Whiting Willauer. Whiting Willauer founded the Civil Air Transport, which was later owned by the CIA to conduct covert operations throughout East and Southeast Asia. On the plane ride to China, Alex Taub also chronicles t … [Click Below for Full Description]

KIERKEGAARD, Søren.
London: Humphrey Milford, Oxford University Press, 1944. 2 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, spines lettered in gilt. With the dust jackets, printed on waste paper due to wartime scarcity. Bookseller's stamps to rear free endpapers. A near-fine copy, with very minor chipping and creasing around extremities, very light toning to spines and at head of front panel of vol. II. First UK edition of the first English translation, using the sheets of the first American edition of the same year with a cancel title page; the UK edition is scarcer than the American edition. Søren Kierkegaard wrote Either/Or in his late twenties, "under a variety of pseudonyms (all recognizable), the chief advantage of this method seems to have been to give Kierkegaard the opportunity of letting different sides of his mind converse as individuals with each other, in a semi-Socratic fashion. Without disclosing his real beliefs, he confronted his readers with a choice of different possibilities [.]. Choice, as the title of his work suggests, was at the root of Kierkegaard's theory. There can be no system of existence, only a system of ideas. From this he develops his theory of 'Existence' (since taken up by the modern Existentialists), in which human beings considered as subjects not objects are the only real existence: their reflective as opposed to active nature being focused on the 'acts' of making perpetual decisions" (PMM). The work was originally published in Denmark in 1843 under the title Enten-Eller, a centenary before its first English translation.

Spine a bit darkened, top textblock edge stained with very shallow bleeding onto leaves. A Very Good and tight copy. Text entirely in French.

Girard, a French painter and poster artist, was the founding member of the Resistance organization known as the CARTE network, which he ran from Antibes, a free zone in France. In 1942 CARTE drew the attention of the British Special Operations Executive, which provided the organization with arms, radio operators, and funds. After traveling to Britain under SOE orders in 1943, Girard was forbidden from returning to France during which time his wife was arrested and incarcerated in the Ravensbruck concentration camp until the end of the war. As a result, Girard broke with the SOE and left in self-imposed exile for the United States where he voiced his opposition to the British and the Gaullists.
