        Tres Ensayos Sobre el Arte de la Encuadernación .

      1945. José Porter, Editor. 1945 - Impreso en el Instituto Gráfico Oliva de Vilanova. Barcelona. Edición de bibliofilia limitada a 330 ejemplares, nº 217. 1 Vol. . XVI+96 pp.+L láminas. Cuarto Mayor. Plena Piel. Bibliografía / Bibliofilia (Bibliofilia general), Encuadernación Artística . El barcelonés Emilio Brugalla Turmo (1901-1987) es sin ningún género de dudas el encuadernador más importante de la historia reciente en España. A su trabajo como artesano, que nos dejó innumerables obras maestras arropando libros de las más diversas temáticas y características, añadió siempre un decidido interés por la divulgación de su arte. Durante toda su vida impartió numerosos cursos y conferencias, muchas de las cuales fueron editadas y son consideradas como pequeños manuales del encuadernador artístico. Esta obra contiene tres de esas conferencias, impartidas en Madrid bajo el auspicio de la Dirección General de Bellas Artes. En ellas aborda la historia de la encuadernación desde la Edad Media, la historia del arte de encuadernar en Barcelona y la técnica de encuadernación. La edición es impecable, con numerosas ilustraciones a toda página con ejemplos de encuadernaciones emblemáticas, impresas en colografía por Ricardo Fonta, dibujos de Teodoro Miciano y un frontispicio a nueve tintas grabado por Solano. El ejemplar está encuadernado en los propios talleres de Brugalla, que lo firma con fecha 1948. Sin embargo, en una de las guardas delanteras presenta una dedicatoria autógrafa de Emilio Brugalla a Jesús Mateu datada en 1946, por lo que deducimos que su primer propietario encargó la encuadernación posteriormente a su adquisición. Contenido en un estuche de cartoné forrado en papel marmorizado con los bordes de la boca en piel, el volumen está encuadernado en plena piel roja, con ambos planos y lomera cuajados de dorados amosaicados, cejas doradas con motivos geométricos y florales, guardas dobles en seda roja y papel marmorizado artesanal y los tres cortes dorados. El acabado alcanza el nivel habitual del taller barcelonés en cada mínimo detalle, haciendo que el libro tenga una presencia espectacular. Se trata por tanto de una auténtica joya de la encuadernación en España.

        Cannery Row

      New York:: Viking Press,, 1945. . A Near Fine copy with previous owner name on the front flyleaf in the yellow binding in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with light edge wear to the extremities. Cannery Row focuses on the acceptance of life as it is—both the exuberance of community and the loneliness of the individual. John Steinbeck draws on his memories of the real inhabitants of Monterey, California, and interweaves their stories in this world where only the fittest survive—creating what is at once one of his most humorous and poignant works. In Cannery Row, John Steinbeck returns to the setting of Tortilla Flat to create another evocative portrait of life as it is lived by those who unabashedly put the highest value on the intangibles—human warmth, camaraderie, and love..

        Zaglada Zydostwa Polskiego: Album Zdjec / Extermination of Polish Jews: Album of Pictures / Extermination des Juifs en Pologne: Album de Photographies.

      Centralna Zydowska Komisja Historyczna w Polsce, Lodz 1945 - Oblong quarto. [21] leaves (Text), 104 leaves (Photographic plates), [15] leaves (Captions). Original printed wrappers. Considered as one of the single most important documentary photo books on the Holocaust ever published, this book became the defining collection of photographic images from the period. Illustrated with 252 b/w photographic reproductions documenting the debasement and destruction of European Jewry, with pictures of cities, ghettos and the camps. This multilingual photographic album was published in Poland a few months after the end of World War II when relatively little was known on the magnitude of the genocide perpetrated upon the European Jews. In addition to a short introduction, the 252 photographs contain shocking footage from the Jewish settlements at the onset of German occupation, the ghettos into which they were later crowded, and finally, photographs of the atrocities committed in the forced labor camps and the extermination camps. Another section of the book is dedicated to the Jewish partisan movements. The photographs were mostly taken as mementos by German soldiers, and are still as shocking today as they were in 1945. Rubbing, creasing, and sporadic chipping to edges of wrappers. Text and captions in Polish, Russian, English, French, Yiddish and Hebrew. Wrappers in overall good- , interior in very good condition.

        Le roman de Jean-Paul Sartre. Manuscrit autographe et tapuscrit complets.

      Autograph manuscript of the author of three and a half pages 4to published in issue 19 of October 21, 1945 Landscape Sunday.Complete manuscript writing very dense, with many erasures, corrections and additions.Chronic literary published on the occasion of the publication of the first two volumes of the trilogy "The Way Back" by Jean-Paul Sartre.Full typescript with autograph correction of the author are joined.Between April 1941 and August 1944, Maurice Blanchot published in the "Chronicle of intellectual life" of the Journal of Debates 173 articles on new 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 he would later develop Many in these essays, "La Part du feu" to "The Infinite Conversation" and "The Scripture of the disaster."From the very first articles, Blanchot demonstrated analytical acuity far beyond current literature that motivates writing. Oscillating between classic and modern, first-class writers and minor novelists, he puts in his columns, the foundations of critical thinking that 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," the 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 two acts from which culture entered its oscillations opposites "(The Book, In Journal of Debates, January 20, 1943).In 2007, Cahiers NRF together under the direction of Christopher Bident all literary chronicles not yet published in volume with the proper analysis of the critical work of Blanchot "novels, poems, essays give rise to a singular reflection, always safer of his own rhetoric, delivered more to the echo of the impossible or the lure of the disappearance. (...) 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
