      London: Secker & Warburg, [1945]. - Green cloth, stamped in white. Cloth sunned along top and bottom edges, as often, spine slightly cocked, but a very good copy for this book, in somewhat worn and soiled dust jacket (printed on the verso of surplus Searchlight stock) with shallow loss at crown of spine and two creased tears at top edge of upper panel showing offset from old repairs. First edition of the most widely known beast- fable in 20th century English letters. Published under wartime manufacturing constraints - albeit in a sizeable first printing of 4500 copies - this title has been difficult to locate collector's condition for some time now. A reprint was called for almost immediately, and the second printing of 10,000 copies was published later the same month. The work's popularity demonstrated, Harcourt ordered a first printing of the American edition consisting of 50,000 copies. MODERN MOVEMENT 93. FENWICK A10a.

        Secret Agent X-9 (Original treatment and complete set of continuities for the serial)

      Los Angeles: Universal Pictures, 1945. Original treatment (titled "Characters and Premise") and complete set of continuities for the 1945 13-episode film serial, including a continuity for the trailer, constituting a virtually complete record. Hammett debuted his Nazi-fighting agent in 1934 in comic book form, with artwork by the legendary Alex Raymond. A film adaptation was made by Universal in 1937, and this serial starring Lloyd Bridges was produced in 1945. Neither the film or serial version are noted in the film appendix of Layman's Hammett bibliography. Any original paper relating to serials is extremely uncommon; a complete set such as this rare. Each document in white studio self-wrappers, with the treatement side-stitched and dated January 4, 1945, the trailer and episode continuities top-stitched and dated between June 6, 1945 and August 16, 1945. Treatment is 16 pages, each of the fourteen continuities represent two reels each and run 16-18 pages each, and the trailer continuity is 5 pages. All mimeograph, Very Good plus condition, each with two blank leaves at the rear, a few terminal blanks loose from staples, a couple of short edge tears, all leaves supple and clean.

        Les romans de Sartre. Manuscrit autographe

      1945 - - 1945, en feuilles. - Manuscrit autographe de l'auteur de 19 pages et demie in-8 publié dans le numéro d'octobre (n° 10) de L'Arche Manuscrit recto-verso complet, à l'écriture très dense, comportant de nombreux ratures, corrections et ajouts. Depuis les années 1930, Maurice Blanchot consacre régulièrement des articles à Jean-Paul Sartre et notamment à ses romans. La parution des deux premiers volumes de la trilogie Les chemins de la liberté allait donner lieu à la publication presque simultanée d'une assez courte chronique dans Dimanche paysage (n° 19, 21 octobre 1945) et de cette large étude, intitulée « Les Romans de Sartre ». Celle-ci, qui dépasse le cadre circonscrit de l'actualité littéraire, entend analyser ce qui fait la spécificité de ces œuvres, à savoir l'usage de la « thèse » : « On peut se demander pourquoi le roman à thèse a mauvaise réputation. Les griefs semblent aussi nombreux du côté de la thèse que du côté du roman ; l'affirmation théorique se plaint du de l'aventure à laquelle on l'engage et d'où elle tirerait un surcroît de vérité. [.] Dans un roman de ce genre, on reproche aux personnages d'être sans vie mais c'est "l'idée" qui est sans vie : elle ne ressemble qu'à elle-même, elle n'a que son propre sens [.]. » Dès lors, Blanchot salue chez Sartre la rencontre d'exceptionnelles capacités aussi bien philosophiques que littéraires, tout en soulignant qu'elle est également le fruit de son époque : « C'est qu'en vérité les œuvres de fiction sont de plus en plus assiégées par des visées théoriques et que les œuvres théoriques sont de plus en plus un appel à des problèmes qui exigent une expression complète. Existentialistes ou non, romanciers et philosophes poursuivent des expériences et des recherches analogues [.]. » Plus encore, il loue chez Sartre sa faculté à faire de ses romans à la fois une expérience en soi et « le récit d'une expérience », notion essentielle pour Blanchot et qui s'était imposée comme l'un des thèmes centraux de son premier recueil critique, Faux Pas (1943). Et c'est cette même qualité qu'il prête, au passage, à L'Invitée de Simone de Beauvoir, une « œuvre remarquable ». Ainsi, au terme d'une réflexion qui laisse transparaître l'admiration de Blanchot pour le roman sartrien, et particulièrement pour La Nausée composée à la même époque que son Thomas l'Obscur, il conclut : « En somme, ne se pourrait-il pas que le roman fut beaucoup moins l'ennemi de la thèse qu'on ne le dit ? » Le manuscrit, et ses multiples biffures et ajouts, témoigne alors des hésitations de Blanchot pour formuler la fin de sa démonstration, pourtant limpide dans le texte achevé : « Ceci seulement : de respecter le statut de mauvaise foi qui est sa morale, de lui reconnaître un pouvoir de transformation, de cristallisation par la transparence de découverte par l'exposition, qui est sa réalité, et enfin, s'étant formée de sa substance, n'existant que par sa durée, de triompher en disparaissant, selon le mouvement propre de l'art, se reprendre dans l'affirmation et s'accomplir dans l'échec - qui est sa vérité. » Le texte sera repris, avec quelques corrections, dans La Part de Feu (1949).

        Naked City.

      New York: Essential Books,, 1945. Octavo. Original grey cloth, titles to front cover and spine in dark blue. With the dust jacket. A unusually sharp copy in the remarkably nice dust jacket, with just a small chip at the top of the spine panel and a few further trivial snags at the tips, a few short closed tears and the odd mark. That said this is a truly exceptional copy, the vivid yellow and red at the spine is bright and fresh, the minor loss is really negligible when compared to the vast majority of other copies. A superb copy and deeply uncommon thus. First edition, first printing. Weegee's first book. His nickname (from the Ouija board) derived from his apparently psychic ability to beat authorities to the crime scene, a feat actually made possible by eavesdropping the emergency services on a portable police-band shortwave radio. He maintained a working darkroom in the trunk of his car in pursuance of this urgent street aesthetic. Naked City was his first book of photographs, and formed the foundation for the 1948 film of the same name.

A few horizontal folds smoothed out, with a single tiny chip at upper left corner; Very Good+. Ann Savage's signed contract with Poverty Row studio Producers Releasing Corporation [PRC] to star in the cornerstone 1945 film noir 'Detour.'

All specific information added in manual type, initialed in several places, and rubber stamped 'PRC PRODUCTIONS' just above Savage's signature. A remarkable survival. National Film Registry.

A celebrated Viennese flower painter, Josef Nigg studied under Johan Drechsler at the Academie des Beaux-Arts in Vienna. Primarily a flower and fruit painter, Nigg was best known for his highly detailed still lifes on porcelain. Between 1800 and 1848 he became one of the foremost decorators at the Vienna porcelain factory, and his delicate paintings are considered some of the finest examples of the Austrian style. Examples of his superb work can be found in some of the best museums in the world, including the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. Known for his luxurious still lifes, Nigg paid close attention to every minute detail of the composition from bloomy roses to dewy peaches. This large chromolithograph is a lovely example of his intricate paintings and effortlessly conveys the luxuriousness and grandeur of his monumental designs.

        [Photo Album]: "The Travels of Trott " World War II Middle East Two Volumes

      Middle East. 1945-1946. Two volumes. String-tied wooden and leather photo albums measuring 7.5" x 12" and 8" x 12". The two albums contain 521 sepia toned or black and white gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1" x 1" and 8.5" x 6", with captions. Albums are very good with some rubbing and tiny tears with near fine photographs.Two albums kept by Lieutenant Maurice Trott while stationed with the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve as a medical officer in Jerusalem during World War II. Trott was a dentist with the No. 644 Squadron RAF and documented his time in the Middle East with the group at the end of World War II and continuing into 1946. The 644 was used for glider towing and supply drops as well as transporting paratroopers. Trott spent his time with the RAF in and around Jerusalem recording his experiences with the local people, military, and sights of the city with fascinating amateur photographs. The images show both the "old" and "modern" city of Jerusalem with photos of "Arabs," women transporting water, camels, and men playing "a game of cric-crac" in a park. There are numerous group photos and portraits of the men Trott served with posing around their tented encampment and the Medical Officer's barracks. One photo shows an RAF briefing which includes a diagram of "friendly" aircraft and "hostile" and states "need to know these to save your own skin." The second album continues with photos of planes with one image captioned, "dawn at dispersal" and another, "prior to take off," showing a squadron awaiting a drop order. Many of these photos are in Jerusalem and Palestine and show medical officers, pilots, and other military personal on duty as well as interacting with locals. One photo of a RAF officer shows him dressed in traditional Middle Eastern garments and reads, "the Sheikh of Aqir or the Dentist who Turned Native." There are also photos of Trott in his surgery performing dental operations on soldiers with captions such as "note the happy patient." One page captioned, "644 Squadron dropping 21st IND Paratroop Company 6th Airborne Division," shows wonderful images of a paratrooper drop as viewed from the ground. Paratroopers with recently deployed parachutes are seen drifting from the sky among the numerous planes that released the men. Their landing is also documented with captions such as, "belly landing" and "safely down." A trip to the Dead Sea is titled, "the lowest place on the Earth's surface. Home at Last!" and features men on beaches enjoying the sea. An image of fresh faced officers in front of a plane reads, "you're doing a grand jarb" and another of a man in a jeep reads, "just back from the desert." One particularly interesting image shows a plane in flight, a "tempest of 6 Squadron," taken while Trott was the passenger in another plane. These along with a number of other photos show the RAF station in Cyprus and the "pilots of the shiny six" the men of No. 6 Squadron RAF, with images of various planes from Mustangs to Lancasters and the men who flew them. One page shows a pilot, Syd Walker, before and after an engine malfunction and a "lucky escape."An extensive and interesting collection of end of war and post war photography in the Middle East which captured the working R.A.F. and its medical crew. .
