String-tied brown leather photo album measuring 7" x 10" and stamped with an embossed scene of a man on a camel with palm trees and pyramids in the distance.

Pictured throughout the album are photos of the cities, the pyramids, the Sphinx of Africa, ancient forts, and the harbor of Algiers. There are also numerous military pictures including a night attack on Alexandria with antiaircraft fire captured on film like a fireworks display. One page shows two German grave sites and a group of captured Germans at El-Alemain as well as an overturned tank. Seven photos show men with various planes taken at Sousse Airfield; one photo is captioned, "enemy plane hit by ack-ack." Sousse was an airfield used during 1943 and controlled by the United States, mostly home to fighters and spitfires. An excellent collection of military photographs from an important WWII campaign.

      (WEEGEE). Fellig, Arthur, aka Weegee. Foreword by William McCleery. NAKED CITY BY WEEGEE. New York: Essential Books, 1945. Second Printing. Small 4to. Cloth in Pictorial Dust Jacket. Photography Monograph. Near Fine/Very Good -. 246pp, profusely illustrated in monochrome gravure. Designed by Henry Stahlhut and Michael Polvere. "Weegee's Naked City" is Arthur Fellig's (aka "Weegee The Famous") enormously influential first book of gritty images of the seamier, crime-riddled side of forties-era New York. Working mostly at night out of his improvised trunk-converted-into-a-darkroom, Weegee parlayed his police radio, trusty Speed Graphic camera, and an uncanny knack for getting to a crime scene quickly into journalistic infamy. An internally most handsome example of the 1945 Essential Books edition (cited on page 145 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume I", pages 142-143 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", and pages 118-121 of "The Book of 101 Books") in the smooth grey cloth binding whose vibrant yellow dust jacket states "Second Large Printing" on the inside front flap and shows some light soiling and creasing, a small area of surface paper loss at the upper foredge corner of the front cover, and a one inch missing chip at the at the top of the spine. Still in all, it is a very sharp copy of this Weegee classic whose rarely found dust jacket looks much nicer in hand than it describes. It has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.

        A wonderful collection of over 900 vintage paperbacks, fastidiously hand-picked from all parts of North America by an avid and knowledgable collector. The collection is still intact and has not been 'robbed' of its outstanding and often signed publications. (Please ask for detailed list). / Lovingly curated, with a particular eye for unusual titles, this collection represents mid 20th century American pop art at its best. From hard-boiled detective stories to alien invasions, from femme fatales to teenage angst, from swashbuckling buccaneers to gritty westerns, these books were collected for two reasons; their excellent, almost new (and in many cases unread) condition, and their lurid, 'one of a kind' cover art and outrageous tag lines.

        The Blue Dahlia (Post-production script for the 1945 film)

      Los Angeles: Paramount Pictures, 1945. Post-production Release Dialogue Script for the 1946 film. The only script associated with the legendary noir that we have ever seen, and presumably the earliest continuity, dated 7 months prior to the film's release. "The Blue Dahlia" got off to a shaky start, as Raymond Chandler could not finish the screenplay on schedule, and was finally under the gun from Paramount to turn in a script with only 2 weeks to go. Chandler reportedly began a non-stop diet of alcohol and glucose injections, ultimately meeting the deadline and turning in his only original screen story, a hard-boiled gem that was the equal of any of his novels. A recognized gem as well: Chandler received an Academy Award nomination for Best Screenplay. Alan Ladd played the Chandler anti-hero to perfection, opposite Veronica Lake during a period when she could basically do no wrong. Tall white studio self-wrappers, dated September 21, 1945, with the sole screenwriting credit for Chandler on the first page. 66 leaves, mimeograph, side-stitched. Very Good condition, with a small bit of tearing at one of the staples and curl to a couple of corners. In a custom clamshell box, with matching folding chemise.

        Handschriftliche Notizen der Chinesisch-Sprachkurse der Baronin Irene von Oertzen im Shanghai der 1940er Jahre. 4 Hefte.

      1942, 1944-1945, - gr. in-8vo, 137 Bll. + 15 w. Bll. / 71 teils unnum. S. + 32 w. Bll. / 132 S. + 7 w. Bll. / 91 S. + 28 w. Bll. (insges. ca. 362 S.), in schöner, geschwungener Handschrift in schwarzer u. blauer Tinte, ein Teil mit Bleistift verfasst, 2 Teile aus einem Heft (von 1942) lose u. ein paar Bll. am Rand ausgefranst + 1 ?Notebook? mit hs. Übungen. Pappbände d. Z., alle berieben, ein Heftrücken teilw. abgelöst, ein anderer Aussenrücken beschädigt, ansonsten guter Zustand. Diese einmaligen Notizen stammen aus der Hand der Baronin Irene von Oertzen aus der Zeit ihres 7jährigen Aufenthaltes in China während des 2. Weltkriegs. Sie war die Frau von Klaus-Detlof von Oertzen (1894-1991), einem Pionier der deutschen Autoindustrie (auf ihn gehen die Ringe im Audi-Logo zurück), der manchmal auch als ?Vater von Volkswagen in Südafrika? bezeichnet wird. Das preussische Adelspaar kehrte Hitler-Deutschland 1935 den Rücken und liess sich in Südafrka und Australien nieder. Nach Ausbruch des Krieges wurden sie in Jakarta von den niederländischen Behörden interniert. Während ihr Mann wegen der anrückenden Japaner nach Indien verlegt wurde, kam sie nach China und schaffte es, dort eine Stelle beim kanadischen Generalkonsulat zu erhalten. Aus dieser Zeit stammen unsere Hefte, denn sie studierte nebenbei die chinesische Kultur und Sprache. Über Beziehungen im Konsulat erreichte sie die Verlegung ihres Mannes nach China, wo er sich als Gebrauchtwagenhändler etablieren konnte. Diesmal zwang sie der chinesische Bürgerkrieg zum Verlassen des Landes und sie zogen nach Südafrika, wo Klaus von Oertzen ab 1951 der Vertreter von VW in Südafrika wurde. Irene von Oertzen beherrschte die chinesische Sprache in Wort und Schrift und schuf über die Jahre, zusammen mit ihrem Mann, eine grosse private Sammlung wertvoller chinesischer Kunst. Sie eröffnete noch 2004 den VW AutoPavilion in Südafrika und starb 2007 mit 99 Jahren nach einem langen, bewegten Leben.Die Notizen enthalten vor allem Vokabeln, d.h. die chinesischen Schriftzeichen mit der meist englischen Übersetzung. Dazwischen notierte sie aber auch auf deutsch und hielt auch Zitate, u.a. von Chiang Kai-shek, in ihren Unterlagen fest. Das erste Heft von 1942 enthält u.a. Textauschnitte aus der chinesischen Literatur in deutscher Übersetzung. Zwischen den Seiten auch ein Blatt mit Vokabeln, aufgeschrieben auf der Rückseite eines Kalenderblattes, welches in japanischer, chinesischer und deutscher Sprache gedruckt wurde und ein Bild der Marienburg in Westpreussen (heute Polen) zeigt. Ein weiteres Heft enthält die Vokabeln zu einem Roman der Han-Dynastie und die beiden letzten Hefte tragen den Titel ?Newspaper-Chinese Kurs 1? resp. 2 und enthalten neben den Vokabeln auch eingeklebte Zeitungsausschnitte mit chinesischen Schriftzeichen. Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl. VAT/TVA (only Switzerland) & postage. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Les Malheurs des immortels

      Paris: Editions de la Revue Fontaine,, 1945. Octavo. Original cream light card wraps printed in green black. With the glassine dust jacket as issued. Frontispiece and 20 plates after collages by Ernst. Contents toned as often. An excellent copy. Second edition, inscribed by Eluard on the first blank "à Monsieur et Madame Edwin Sisler, ce livre dont je n'ai fait qu'un tiers, Paul Eluard"*, and additionally signed below by Max Ernst. An intriguing message, and at the risk of taking a surrealist at his word, one that might allude to a third force behind this landmark work, Ernst and Eluard's second joint-publication and their first genuine collaboration: for Répétitions, published earlier the same year as Les Malheurs (1922), Eluard simply chose the collages that best suited his poems, whereas here the pair worked in "near-perfect symbiosis" (Assa, The French Review, Vol. 64, No. 3, 3 February 1991, p. 643) to produce a work interrogating such themes as "the relationship between painting and poetry, the role of the image as icon of psychic processes, and the ambivalent status of the scopic function - or the reversibility of blindness and revelation", anticipating Bréton's vaunted Manifeste du surréalisme (1924) by two years. The first edition of Les Malheurs was printed in an unspecified "small number of copies" (rear of volume); this second edition comprised 1860 lettered or numbered copies (in addition to a "few" copies not for sale), of which this is number 558. Inscribed copies are rare.

        Twee originele tekeningen, de allervroegst bekende.

      1. Sint Nicolaas. 35,5 x 26,0 cm. Potloodschets uitgewerkt in oostindische inkt en aquarel op tekenpapier: een lachende Sinterklaas met de staf in de rechterhand wijst naar onder, mogelijk naar een buiten de tekening liggend cadeau. Kennelijk deels overgetekend naar een voorbeeld, misschien uit een advertentie of jeugdtijdschrift. Rechtsonder in potlood: 'Geteekend/ door/ Hugo!'. Aan de randen gescheurd en gekreukt, punaisegaatje; tussen staf en mijter een bruine vochtvlek. Aan de achterkant een kleine schets (6 x 3 cm) van ongeveer dezelfde voorstelling in inkt.2. Oude man. 36,5 x 30,0 cm. Tekening met pen en penseel in twee tinten bruine inkt met sporen zwart krijt op glad, stevig papier: een oude man met snor, hoed en stropdas die de beschouwer recht aankijkt. Rechtsonder in pen een handtekening 'HCLAUS'. Scheur in de rand aan de rechterkant, licht gekreukt, bruine vlek rechts en enkele kleinere vlekjes. Aan de achterkant vage lijmsporen.* De vroegst bekende tekeningen van Hugo Claus, die hij maakte toen hij 15 jaar oud was. Claus schonk ze beide in het voorjaar van 1945 aan Hilda Danneels (1928-2007), de dochter van een hoofdonderwijzer in Astene. Op 4 april 1945 (de dag voor zijn zestiende verjaardag) schreef Claus een gedicht in haar poëziealbum, dat gelezen werd door de kunstschilder Antoon De Clerck. Hilda Danneels gaf de tekeningen later cadeau aan haar vriendin Christiane Boterbergh.Bijgevoegd: kleurenfoto waarop Christiane Boterbergh met haar man beide tekeningen aan de camera toont.Nooit eerder aangeboden, de eerste getuigen van het dubbeltalent van Hugo Claus!.

Stuart Little is a 1945 children's novel widely recognized as a classic in children's literature. Stuart Little was illustrated by the subsequently award-winning artist Garth Williams, also his first work for children. It is a realistic fantasy about a talking mouse, Stuart Little, born to human parents in New York City.Garth Montgomery Williams (1912-1996) was an American artist who came to prominence in the American postwar era as an illustrator of children's books. Many of the books he illustrated have become classics of American children's literature. In Stuart Little, Charlotte’s Web, and in the Little House series of books of Laura Ingalls Wilder, Williams's drawings have become inseparable from how we think of those stories. In that respect. Williams's work belongs in the same class as Sir John Tenniel’s drawings for Alice in Wonderland, or Ernest Shepard’s illustrations for Winnie the Pooh.Hall, A13 [Attributes: First Edition]
