        Bouquet of Flowers]

      1945 - Chromolithograph. Printed on wove paper. In good condition with the exception of some faint discoloration to the surface of the paper in the margins. Image size: 25 7/8 x20 3/4 inches. This luxurious chromolithograph of a bouquet of flowers is after a painting by the celebrated Viennese porcelain painter, Joseph Nigg. 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. Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs Vol 10, p. 220; Thieme/Becker, Allgemeines Lexicon der bilden Künstler, Vol. 25/26, p. 473.

        Historical Documents Recorded Soon After the Atomic Bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki

      [1945]. Some content dislodged from pages, else albums very good in spiral-bound boards, and scrapbook very good in flexible boards. Prints are uniformly in very good condition, with light curling, creasing to the edges, and fading evident in several instances.. Collection of over 1400 photographs documenting the catastrophic aftermath of the United States' bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and 9, 1945. Consists of 17 loose 8 1/2 X 11 inch vintage prints, 20 loose modern prints of varying sizes, a scrapbook, and two albums, titled A and B. Album A features approximately 900 photographs, mostly 1 X 1 1/2 inch contact sheet cutouts and loose 3 1/2 X 4 1/2 inch prints, depicting Hiroshima Army Hospital, Hiroshima Red Cross Hospital, Hiroshima Relief Hospital, Motoyasu-cho, and the Gokoku Shrine, as well as demolished buildings, injured civilians, necrotic organs, and disfigured skeletal remains. Album B includes 365 photographs, primarily 2 X 2 1/2 and 1 X 1 1/2 inch contact sheet cutouts, of Nagasaki Medical University and Shiroyama National School, among other sites, that focus on the obliterated city structures and damaged natural flora of Nagasaki and the surrounding area. The scrapbook contains approximately 133 original prints, several clippings of photographic reproductions, and 5 contact strips, either adhered to the book's pages or laid in between sheets. The albums and scrapbook feature handwritten notes in Japanese, presumably commenting upon the depicted casualties and recording the detrimental effects of nuclear radiation on the hospital patients. These photographs seem to have been created at the behest of the Japanese Ministry of Education, which assembled a team to record the destruction during the immediate aftermath of the attacks in late 1945. In an effort to disseminate medical information to doctors, scientists, and the greater public, the Ministry called upon several of the Japan's most important filmmakers and photographers, including Shunkichi Kikuchi, who would garner renown as one of the foremost photographers of postwar Hiroshima and Tokyo. While several photographers contributed photographs to the archive, the majority of the 17 loose vintage prints are images by Kikuchi. The collection also includes several stills from a documentary on the bombings, created by the Nippon Elga-sha film company as part of the Ministry's initiative. A historically significant and in-depth record of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki attacks, this archive features numerous penetrating, yet disquieting, images from some of the era's leading Japanese photographers, providing insight into the devastating scientific, medical, and psychological ramifications of the atomic bomb.

        POSTER - Toros en Vitoria

      Ortega, Valencia 1945 - This is not a book but a wonderfully colourful ORIGINAL 1946 Spanish Bullfighting Poster. Measuring 106cm x 54.5cm, it is by C. Ruano Llopis and it advertises a bullfighting event in Vitoria, Northern Spain for 4,5 & 6 August 1945 starring the matadors Ortega, Arruza (the champion Spanish bullfighter in 1945),Silverio Perez, Julian Marin, Parrita, Manolete and Pepin Martin Vazquez. The poster was printed by Ortega of Valencia and it bears the printer's name at the bottom and also the square stamp of authenticity to the lower right side with a print number of 1577. The brittle poster, whilst all original, has folds and creases, as well as a little damage to the lower left edge. All of this could be rectified by a skilled archivist and, of course, the poster would be best conserved by professional linen-backing. We believe that few of these would have survived so long in anything approaching collectable condition, as they were meant to be pasted up on billboards. Our shop acquired this poster (one of a collection of 5) many years ago from a customer who used to live in Spain. We're now having a clear out of our basement and we have decided to put it on sale internationally. The poster will be sent, well packed, in a sturdy tube. Please note that by selling such a piece of original art, we do not necessarily approve of or support the sport of bullfighting.

        Fortunately he's a great lover of cats.

      1945 1945 - Sheet size: 177 × 197 mm. Signed Nicolas Bentley and dated "45". Pen and ink on wove paper. The cat thrower with an overslip. The chairman murmurs sympathetically to another man on the platform, as the prospective Conservative candidate hurls a dead cat back into the riotous crowd. The General Election of 1945 was a surprise defeat for the Conservative party. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

        Reveille for Radicals [*SIGNED*]

      Chicago: University of Chicago Press. Very Good+ in Very Good dj. 1945 (c.1946). First Edition. Hardcover. [minor shelfwear, slight fading to black cloth along top and bottom edges, a little age-toning to page edges; jacket is moderately edgeworn, and the spine is faded (although black-lettered title is still fully readable), with some minor chipping at the ends and a small puncture-tear mid-spine]. INSCRIBED fulsomely and SIGNED by the author on the ffep, to his "very good friend" "Larry Bachman" -- presumably screenwriter (and later producer) Lawrence P. Bachmann, since Alinsky cites "the blandishments of Hollywood" in expressing his feeling that the inscribee "still is and always will be a real American Radical." Scarce in the first edition, and signed copies of any of Alinsky's books are uncommon. Although a lot of people had to look him up after his name became an Obama-bashing buzzword during the 2008 Presidential Election, the author (1909-1972) was one of the most important political figures in the middle of the 20th century; considered the founder of modern community organizing, his published books were enormously influential. "Rules for Radicals," published the year before his death, is the most often cited, but the present volume, blurbed as "a call to action for democracy," was his first important work in this vein. [NOTE regarding the publication date: it's stated, rather unusually, on the copyright page that the book was "Copyright 1946" but "Published 1945." The New York Times documented the publication date as January 14, 1946.] Signed by Author .

"Rampenlicht: Koepfe der Literatur und des Theaters" (Spotlight: Heads of literature and theater) looks at leading artists in the world of literature and theater. P. Walter Jacob (1905-1977) was a director, actor and conductor. In 1933 he fled from Nazi Germany after he received warning of his impending arrest.

        The Open Society And Its Enemies

      London: George Routledge & Sons, 1945. First editions of the economist's magnum opus. Octavo, 2 volumes. Each volume is near fine in very good dust jackets with light wear. Each volume is signed by Karl Popper. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. One of the most important books of the twentieth century, Karl Popper's The Open Society and Its Enemies is an uncompromising defense of liberal democracy and a powerful attack on the intellectual origins of totalitarianism. Popper was born in 1902 to a Viennese family of Jewish origin. He taught in Austria until 1937, when he emigrated to New Zealand in anticipation of the Nazi annexation of Austria the following year, and he settled in England in 1949. Before the annexation, Popper had written mainly about the philosophy of science, but from 1938 until the end of the Second World War he focused his energies on political philosophy, seeking to diagnose the intellectual origins of German and Soviet totalitarianism. The Open Society and Its Enemies was the result.
