        Photograph titled "Native Huts in Tangong Cattong" TOGETHER WITH Original Watercolour "Under the Equator near Malacca Straits".

      Watercolour dated1945. Photograph undated (1930?). A pair of Singapore images - a photograph and a watercolour from the photograph.Undated gelatin silver photograph by G.R. Lambert & Co laid down onto card. Title directly beneath the photograph. Photograph measures 19.3 x 26cm, card 24 x 30cm.Watercolour on thick paper, signed "Arnold 1945" near the lower left corner, "Under the Equator near Malacca Straits" pencilled along lower edge. Some minor damage with loss to the paper two corners not affecting the image, a little occasional spotting, sections of mounting tape on reverse, but overall very good. 38 x 46cm. A scarce pair: a gelatin silver photograph of Katong from the studio of G.R. Lambert and an original watercolour painted from the photograph.The image depicts a typical Malay house beside a river situated in what is today Katong an area in central Singapore spanning Upper East Coast Road and Tanjong Rhu. Scenes such as this would have been common in Singapore showing a traditional house built from local materials, nipah palm for the walls with an attap roof, would have been common in the days prior to removal of the kampungs. These old houses were typically built on stilts - this not only protected the building from flooding and animals, and provided storage space but also, along with the design of the roof and the full-length openable window spaces - increased the overall ventilation and kept the interior cool. Shade from nearby palms and other trees was also important in reducing the build-up of heat in the kampung. In this image a family is shown squatting near a flat-bottomed boat on the edge of the river near a boat, indicating that their likely main source of income was from fishing.

        Das königliche Schloß in Potsdam (Stadtschloss), 1856. Original-Photographie. Vintage. Salzpapier-Abzug. Verlagsseitig montiert. Köln, verlegt durch F.C. Eisen, 1856. Bildgröße 24 x 39 cm. Blattgröße 44,5 x 63 cm.

      - Auf dem Träger Blindstempel des Verlegers (Träger etwas gebräunt und angestaubt, mit kleinen Randläsuren, am linken Rand etwas blass, sonst sehr gut erhalten). Rarissimum der frühen Potsdam-Photographie. Wohl erstes großformatiges Foto des von Knobelsdorff erbauten, 1945 zerstörten und 2014 neu errichteten Schlosses. Die frühesten überlieferten Potsdam-Fotos stammen von sog. 'Reisephotographen', also solchen, die nicht ortsansässig waren. In Potsdam waren dies Michiels (1823-1887), der 1856 dort photographierte, und die Brüder Schneider, die erst 1859 Berlin und Potsdam bereisten. Michiels ist vor allem für seine Aufnahmen vom Kölner Dom bekannt, von seinen - hervorragenden - Potsdam-Photographien tauchten bisher nur ganz wenige auf. Vier Motive (dieses nicht) wurden 2006 im Rahmen der Ausstellung 'Auslöser Potsdam' gezeigt, weitere kennt man nur aus dem Inserat, das der Verleger Eisen 1858 in der Leipziger 'Illustrirten Zeitung' schaltete. Abgesehen von der Seltenheit ist das große Format und der ausgezeichnete Erhaltungszustand des hier angebotenen Abzugs bemerkenswert. Der seinerzeitige Preis betrug übrigens 2 Taler (Thaler) pro Blatt, das entspricht etwa dem Wochengehalt eines Webers um 1850 oder dem halben Monatslohn einer Stickerin oder Weißnäherin in Berlin. - Vgl. Auslöser Potsdam, 28ff - Heidtmann, Wie das Photo., S. 55. 2000 gr. [Attributes: First Edition]

        They Seek a City

      Garden City: Doubleday, Doran. 1945. Inscribed by the authors to poet and all-around rogue Max [Bodenheim], "the King of Greenwich Village." A June 13, 1945 inscription from Bontemps reads, "To Max - the kind of friend that sustains the weary traveler seeking a city - with warm regards and deep appreciation - Arna." To which Conroy has added, "& Jack/ who makes Max's pleasant joint his headquarters." A wonderful triple association, between one of the key figures of the Harlem Renaissance (Bontemps), one of the most highly regarded of the "proletarian writers" of the 1930s (Conroy), and the "king" of the Greenwich Village bohemians, and linking the three social movements they represented. A history of African-American migration in the United States; an updated edition was published in 1966 as Anyplace But Here. The inscription is on the front flyleaf; there is a small foredge tear on the half title. Minor edge wear to boards; a near fine copy, in a supplied, very good dust jacket with several small edge chips and one at mid-spine. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine.

      Washington DC: War Department, 1945. 1st Edition. Soft cover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Preface dated July 1, 1945. 4to (263 x 199 mm). [8], I:1-19 [1], II:1-10, III:1-7 [1], IV:1-15 [1], V:1-9 [1], VI:1-14, VII:1-15 [1], VIII:1-17 [1], IX:1-13 [1], X:1-10, XI:1-13 [1], XII:1-12, XIII:1-3 [1], A1:1-6, A2:1-2, A3:1-3 [1], A4:1-5 [1], A5:1 [1]. Leaf IV-9/10 a dublicate. With the printed version of page VI-12. Original printed cream paper wrappers, staple-bound as issued. Front wrapper somewhat buckled at edges and with light water, a few leaves with short tear to blank fore-margin, otherwise clean and unmarked. Added is the first printed edition of the General Account by the Government Printing Office, Washington DC (Coleman No. 5), stapled and pasted into printed cardboard case as issued, 8vo (229 x 148 mm), vii, 182 pp. The set is housed in a custom-made clamshell box. A fine copy. ----PMM 422e; Norman 1962; Coleman, The "Smyth Report": a Descriptive Check List, No. 3. This is the rare lithoprint version of the Smyth Report on the creation of the atomic bomb and one of Henry DeWolf Smyth's own copies, signed by him on the title page, complete and in original wrappers, one of only 1000 copies printed, accompanied by a copy of the first printed edition of this work in octavo format. The Smyth Report is renowned for its "remarkably full and candid account of the development work carried out between 1940 and 1945 by the American-directed but internationally recruited team of physicists, under the code name 'Manhattan District,' which culminated in the production of the first atomic bomb" (PMM). This is a copy of the lithoprint version, preceding the first printed edition and intended for press release distribution immediately after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August of 1945. The lithoprint version was produced from stencils made by several typewriters in the Adjutant General's Office, along with a virtually unobtainable 12-chapter mimeograph version (Coleman No. 1) and a very small number of 'ditto' printings with text in purple (Coleman No. 2), sent out to project leaders and a few others belonging to the Manhattan District work. All copies of the mimeograph version were probably destroyed. It is not yet determined if the Ditto version precedes the Lithoprint version or not, and it might be just a proof copy. This copy includes the secret page VI-12 which is left blank in most copies, because it deals with production rates of plutonium. Since the leaves were gathered for binding in great haste and under tight security, surviving copies often contain missing and/or repeated leaves. No leaves are missing in this copy. Very Good....

        Une étude sur l'Apocalypse. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets

      S.n. (Journal des débats). Autograph manuscript of the author of four and a half pages in-4 published in the issue dated November 3, 1943 the Journal of Debates. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Literary review published on the occasion of the publication of the study of Father HM Feret on the Apocalypse of St. John and the Christian view of history. Full typescript is attached. Between April 1941 and August 1944, Maurice Blanchot published in the "Chronicle of the intellectual life" of the Journal of Debates 173 articles on recently published books. In a half-page newspaper (about seven pages in-8), the young author of "Thomas the Obscure" his first steps in the field of literary criticism and inaugurates a theoretical work that develop later Many in these essays, "The Share of fire" to "The Infinite Conversation" and "The Writing disaster." From the very first articles, Blanchot demonstrates a sharp analysis far beyond the current literature that motivates writing. Oscillating between classical and modern writers of the first order and minor novelists, he puts in his columns, the foundations of critical thinking which will mark the second half of the twentieth. Transformed by writing and by war, Blanchot breaks, over a thought exerted "on behalf of the other," with violent maurassiennes certainties of his youth. Not without paradox, then it transforms literary criticism philosophical act of intellectual resistance to barbarism at the heart of an "openly marechalist" newspaper: "Burning a book, write, are the two acts between culture which registered its oscillations opposites "(The Book, In Journal of Debates, January 20, 1943). In 2007, Cahiers de la NRF together under the direction of Christophe Bident all literary chronic unpublished volumes with critical analysis of the relevant work of Blanchot "novels, poems, essays give rise to a singular reflection, always safer his own rhetoric, delivered more to echo the impossible or the lure of extinction. (...) Not without contradictions or step aside, and the certainty of a feverish work begins (... ) these articles reveal the genealogy of a critic who has transformed during the chronicle necessity of thought.

        Lord's Prayer.

      NY: 1945. A stunning original painting in ink and gouache by the renowned illustrator Arthur Szyk, signed and dated by the artist. The painting measures 7 3/4 by 5 3/4 inches, on illustration board measuring 12 by 9 1/4 inches. This illustrated Lord's Prayer is comprised of fourteen calligraphed lines, illuminated in bright colors in the style of a medieval manuscript. Along the left margin of the page is an intricate border, incorporating portraits of people praying, including a little boy kneeling with his hands folded. A floral border extends along the bottom of the page, and tiny, delicate curls of tracery fill in the border and extend along the top edge. Szyk's work is characterized by its minute detail, and his style is very much in the tradition of Eastern miniaturists. Szyk was born in Lodz, Poland in 1894. His artistic talents became evident at an early age, and he was sent to Paris to study at the Académie Julian when he was a teenager. He was a prolific illustrator of books, many of which were of Jewish content, including his masterpiece, The Haggadah. After World War II, Szyk moved to the United States, where he became one of the chief artists for the Limited Editions Club and contributed illustrations and caricatures to several magazines. This illustration was published in the January 1946 edition of Coronet magazine, inside the front cover. Mounted and framed. On the sheet of illustration board, around the illustration, are publisher's notes. Two small spots of tape residue, light soiling to margins, light toning; the painting is in fine condition.

        MILDRED PIERCE (1945)

      Warner Brothers 1945 - Vintage original 36 x 14" (90 x 35 cm.) insert poster, USA. Joan Crawford, Ann Blyth, Eve Arden, Jack Carson, Zachary Scott, Bruce Bennett, dir: Michael Curtiz; Warner Brothers. The grand noir telling of a mother and daughter relationship gone wrong. James M. Cain's novel was more a story of the Depression and a woman's struggle to overcome that and her mediocre life situations. The Warner Brothers screenplay framed it as a murder mystery, set with high 1940s fashions. Amongst the contributing writers to the script was William Faulkner. After being released from 18 years at MGM, Joan Crawford campaigned hard for a vehicle to bring her back. She won the role, even having to audition for it and later she fought just as hard to win the Academy Award for Best Actress for the role. She always considered it to be the best picture she ever made. It most likely was. Eve Arden, Ann Blyth, the screenplay, the cinematography and the production were all nominated for 1945 Academy Awards. Poster displays the clean, straightforward duotone art which branded Warner Brothers posters of the 1940s. Poster has been conserved and paper-backed. It was folded and the fold lines have been touched-up. A few tiny inter tears and creases have been addressed and the borders cleaned up. NEAR FINE

        Têtes-mortes

      First edition of which there were no large paper copies.Precious copy inscribed by Beckett to his friend the painter Geer (Van Velde) and his wife Lise.Spine very slightly sunned, not serious."What to say of the sliding planes, the shimmering contours, the cut-out figures in the fog, the balance that any little thing can break, breaking and re-forming themselves under our very eyes? How to talk about the colors that breathe and pant? Of the swarming stasis? Of this world without weight, without force, without shadow? Here everything moves, swims, fells, comes back, falls apart, re-forms. Everything stops, non-stop. One would say it's the revolt of the internal molecules of a stone a split second before its disintegration. That is literature" (The van Veldes' Art, or the World and the Trousers, in Cahiers d'Art n°11-12, Paris 1945).Beckett here is not talking - despite how it may appear - about his literary oeuvre, but about the paintings of Geer Van Velde, going on to add a few lines later "[Bram] Van Velde paints distance. G[eer] Van Velde paints succession." This elegy, published on the occasion of the double exhibition of the Van Veldes (Geer at Maeght's and Bram at the Galerie Mai) is the first important text on these painters, more or less unknown to the public at the time: "We've only just started spouting nonsense about the Van Velde brothers, and I'm the first. It's an honor." This is also the first critical text written directly in French by a young Irish writer who had not, as yet, published anything in France.Thus, the first and most important of Beckett's writings on art, composed at the dawn of his literary career, establishes - right from the start - a fundamental relationship between his developing work and his friends' art: "Thus this text has often been read in a hollow or in the mirror, as one of the rare designations of Beckett's poetry (to come) by the man himself, a sort of anamorphic program of writing," (Un pantalon cousu de fil blanc : Beckett et l'épreuve critique by Pierre Vilar).A real statement of dramaturgical intent, this fundamental text whose introspective value Beckett lays out from the introduction on ("one does nothing but tell stories with words") ushers in the writer's most fruitful creative period. In essence, like Apollinaire and Cendrars, Beckett draws from the artistic problems of his contemporaries the catalyst of his own future writing through "the deepest questioning of narrative, figurative or poetical presuppositions" (Pascale Casanova in Beckett l'abstracteur).The major influence of modern painting on the narrative structure - or destructuring - of Beckett's drama and novels would be pointed out and examined by a number of thinkers, among them Gilles Deleuze, Julia Kristeva and Maurice Blanchot. It was, in fact, with the art of the Van Veldes (first Geer then Bram) that Beckett began to formalize this desire to translate the pictorial question into dramaturgical terms. Thus it was that he rejected Nicolas de Staël's set design for Godot, since: "the set must come out of the text without adding anything to it. As for the visual comfort of the audience, you can imagine how much I care. Do you really think you can listen with the backdrop of Bram's set, or see anything other than him?" (Letter to Georges Duthuit, 1952).When he met Geer in 1937, "Beckett was going through a major existential crisis and had just been reworking his first novel, Murphy, which had been rejected by a great many publishers. He was lost in alcohol, leaving Ireland and moving once and for all to Paris" (Le Pictural dans l'œuvre de Beckett, Lassaad Jamoussi). He returned from a long artistic journey in Germany, where he was marked by classical works as well as contemporary art - it was during this journey that he discovered Caspar David Friedrich's Two Men Contemplating the Moon, his source for Waiting for Godot.Art was thus at the heart of his creative thinking and the friendship that would tie him to Geer and later his brother Bram and their sister Jacoba (with whom his relationship may have been more than merely friendly), and which would profoundly influence his life and writing. His first writing on art is a short piece on Geer Van Velde, whose works he pressed on his new lover Peggy Guggenheim when she set up her new London gallery. Despite the relative failure of the exhibition (which followed Kandinsky's), he got his friend a one-year scholarship from Peggy. James Knowlson even thinks that "if Beckett maintained close links with Peggy for a long time, it was first and foremost because she could be convinced to give his artist friends a serious helping hand, starting with Geer Van Velde" (in Beckett, p. 474). Enigmatic, the little piece that Beckett wrote at the time at Peggy's request already contained a dramaturgical kernel of thought: " Believes painting should mind its own business, i.e. colors. i.e no more say Picasso than Fabritius, Vermeer. Or inversely."   Slower to develop, his friendship with Bram and interest in the latter's painting slowly changed Beckett's outlook on Geer's art and when, ten years after his first meeting the brothers, he wrote The World and the Trousers,  Beckett brought up to date a duality symbolized by the title, taken from an anecdote given as a legend to the article. The world is the "imperfect" work of God, made in six days, to which the tailor compares the perfection of his trousers, made over six months.The link between this anecdote and the Van Velde brothers is perhaps to be found in the second essay Beckett devoted to them, in 1948, Peintres de l'empêchement [Painters of the Problem] (Derrière le miroir n° 11/12) : "One of them said: I cannot see the object in order to represent it because I am who I am. There are always two sorts of problems - the object-problem and the 'eye-problemGeer Van Velde is an artist of the former sortBram Van Velde of the latter."Resistance of the object or impotence of the artist, this tale, the "true primary narrative core in kôan zen form," (P. Vilar) would later find itself scattered throughout Beckett's work and would more specifically take centre stage in Endgame, whose similarity, by the by, with the art of Geer Van Velde was noted by Roger Blin. "At the time, he was friends with the Dutch brothers Geer and Bram Van Velde, both painters. Geer was a painter in the style of Mondrian. I have the feeling that Beckett saw Endgame as a painting by Mondrian with very tidy partitions, geometric separations and musical geometry," (R. Blin, Conversations avec Lynda Peskine in Revue d'Esthétique).    Beckett's growing affinity for Bram Van Velde's work and the energy he put into promoting his work, especially to the galerie Maeght or his friend the art historian Georges Duthuit, was no doubt to the detriment of his relationship with Geer. Nonetheless, despite some misunderstandings, their friendship remained unbroken; as did the silent but anxious dialogue that the writer maintained with the art of the younger Van Velde brother, two of whose large canvases he owned. "The big painting by Geer finally gave me a sign. Shame that it should have turned out so badly. But perhaps that's not true after all" (letter to Georges Duthuit, March 1950). "Geer shows great courage. Ideas that are a little cutting, but maybe only in appearance. I have always had a great respect for them. But not enough, I think" (letter to Mania Péron, August 1951)The death of Geer Van Velde in 1977 affected Beckett deeply and coincided with a period of intense nostalgia during which the writer decided to give himself over to "a great clear-out" of his house so as to live between "walls as grey as their owner." Confiding his state of mind to his friend, the stage designer Jocelyn Herbert, Beckett bore witness to the indefatigable affection he had nurtured for the painter over forty years: "more canvases on display, including the big Geer Van Velde behind the piano."A precious witness to the friendship of these fellow travelers who had, ever since checking the veracity of the game of chess played by Murphy and Mr. Endon for Beckett's first novel, tackled together the great challenges of modernity: "It's that, deep down, they don't care about painting. What they're interested in is the human condition. We'll come back to that" (Beckett on the Van Velder brothers in The World and the Trousers). Les éditions de minuit Paris 1967 9,5x18cm broché

        WOMEN . . . OUR WOUNDED NEED YOUR CARE! [. . . ] Join a Hospital Company

      Recruiting Publicity Bureau United States Army 1945 - Broadside. Linen-backed. Large illustration of a woman in a blue WAC uniform carrying a surgical tray. Poster: 37-3/4" x 25-1/4". Backing: 39-1/2" x 27-1/4" Although the U.S. Army Medical Department was one of the slowest to integrate women, when over 5,000 of its combat-ready men -- including many trained technicians and orderlies -- were forced to transfer to the Infantry in early 1944, the department began a major push to recruit women to fill the positions. The Female Medical Technician campaign, as pictured here, was hugely successful, despite the high qualifications demanded of applicants, many of whom were required to have advanced degrees and at least two years of experience in their fields. WACs also served as laboratory technicians, psychiatric social workers, medical stenographers, and in a variety of other technical and/or skilled medical positions; by the end of the war, the Medical Department employed approximately 20,000 WACs, nearly a fifth of the Corps. [Treadwell, United States Armies in WWII. Special Studies: The Women's Army Corps]The poster reads, in full: "Women . . . our wounded need your care! | You can help to give it . . . The U.S. Army Medical Department is calling for help -- the help of WOMEN -- needed in Army hospitals to serve as medical technicians, surgical technicians, and in other important assignments. Assignments also available at Army Air Forces, Ground Forces, and Service Force Installations. | Join a hospital company. | For information apply at any U.S. Army Recruiting Station or ask your local Postmaster."Uncommon, particularly in this fine of condition. Cream paper printed in blue, grey and white. Backed in linen with white paper coating to poster side [Attributes: First Edition]
