Jacket spine very slightly darkened, minimal wear at top of spine, a few short edge tears, otherwise excellent.E[lwyn] B[rooks] White (1899-1985) first book for children. 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

        Naked City

      New York: Essential Books,, 1945. Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in grey morocco, titles to spine and front board in silver, wraparound black morocco of New York's skyline, twin rule to turn-ins silver, black endpapers with the original bound in, silver edges. Illustrated with black and white photographs throughout. A fine copy. First edition, first printing. Weegee's first book. Arthur (Weegee) Fellig is one of the centuries most eccentric artists, famously he would appear at crime scenes before the police. He achieved this by the simple device of spending night after night in the tougher sections of New York listening to the radio traffic on a police radio he had at some time "liberated". Famous as a sensationalist in his day, time has treated him more kindly and the hard eye with which he shaped his pictures gave them qualities like no others.

October: The full-moon night at the gate of the Chion-in Monastery. Tomikichiro Tokuriki (1902-1999)is best known for his shin hanga woodblocks. - Tokuriki was the 13th generation in a family of Kyoto artists. Kyoto was the old capital and always had a flourishing art tradition and of course lively circles of woodblock print artists. The Shin Hanga movement was a revitalization of ancient woodblock practices in a modern context. There was also a parallel Sosoku hanga creative movement in which the artist carved the woodblock and printed the pictures himself. Tokuriki was accomplished in both. Whether for figures or landscapes, he was a master of subtle colors. - Japan was a desolate place in 1945 when this edition was produced. Kyoto was spared the bombing and was pretty much intact. The Kyoto Shin Hanga circle was able to produce some wonderful prints both to sell to the occupation forces and to brighten their own spirits. (Galleries). Tokuriki was born 1n 1902 in Kyoto, studied art in Kyoto, and started his carreer as a painter. In 1929, he switched to woodblock printing. He participated in numerous exhibitions in Japan and abroad, and promoted sosaku-hanga in Kyoto. As you maybe know, the sosaku-hanga movement (creative prints movement) is a twenty century movement of Japanese printers emphasizing the artist's control over the entire process of producing prints (creation of the design, carving, printing, publishing), as opposed to the traditional "division of labor" between publisher, artist and craftman-carver typical of ukiyoe and shin-hanga. Before WWII, he made many prints published by Uchida, Unsodo and Kyoto Hanga-in. After the war, he created Matsukyu Publishing Company to produce and distribute his own prints. A subdivision of this company also publishes self-carved, self-printed pictures by himself and a few other artists .

        [Archive]: World War II Letters Correspondence

      Island of Tinian. March 1 - September 8, 1945. A collection comprised of 35 letters written while Andrews was in the Service, serving on the Island of Tinian in the Marianas of the South Pacific, just three miles from Saipan. All letters are near fine, some are on Red Cross Stationary, nine retain the original mailed envelopes with the appropriate "Soldier's Mail" notations, as well as censor stamps. All are to Lillian, Andrews sister who resides in their hometown of St. Albans, Vermont, and are all signed "E." These can best be described as "Camp Life" letters written in the aftermath of the Battle of Tinian after which the island became an "important base for further Allied operations in the Pacific campaign." Used as an airfield due to it's proximity to Japan, Tinian was the sight of the loading of the Atomic bombs into the Enola Gay. A complete list of letters with descriptions is available upon request.The writer is a perceptive, decent, caring, young soldier, unsure about his post war life, but well-grounded, honorable, and self-effacing. In a letter dated March 6, 1945 Andrews writes, "We are now running cable underground thru to another switchboard and personally, I'm enjoying the work. We are by ourselves, out in the open fields. Planes fly above our heads and we usually raise our heads to watch their antics." Another letter dated March 26, 1945 reads, "if we could be together tonight we'd have one heck of a long visit but this censorship business puts a ball and chain on my writing. Guess we'll have to wait and visit after the war." On April 2, 1945 he writes, "the war with Germany stands pretty good and I hope those Hammerheads fold up soon. None of us expect to get home until this war with Japan is finished up, but with Germany out things would pick up over here a lot faster. I wish they'd have me do more to help finish off Japan. It's about like being back in the States here now, in a way. No more air raids." A letter from May discusses the prison camps reading, "I've been reading the news of the Nazi prison camps and death traps. It seems almost impossible to believe that a supposedly civilized people could do such destruction of human life." Provides interesting insights into the thoughts and attitudes of a member of "the Greatest Generation". .

        A l'ombre du romanesque. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets

      Autograph manuscript of the author of three and a half pages in-4 published in the 23 of November 18, 1945 Landscape Sunday. Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions. Chronic literary work of André Dhôtel. Full typescript is attached. When the apostle of silence literature novelist speaks of the invisible, it gives a strange apology of a work "intended to save [...] the essence of the novel, his pure life and secret", "exciting into its monotony, as the pace of the most beautiful romantic stories where nothing happens, but where the unexpected is always imminent. " 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. " (C. Bident). The autograph manuscripts of Maurice Blanchot are of great rarity. S.n. (Paysage dimanche) s.l. (Paris) s.d. (1945) 11,5x22cm & 2 pages in-4 3 pages 1/2 in-4
