        California.

      Jo Mora Publications. Monterey, CA. 1945. - Color pictographic / pictorial map poster, map 24 3/8 x 18 5/16 inches on sheet 25 x 19 inches. Professionally conserved with paper backing, very good condition. Jo Mora is perhaps the best known and well loved of all the pictorial map makers of the early and mid twentieth century. Mora experimented with printing this map on different types of paper; a few maps were printed on this tan paper before Mora settled on the glossy white paper which is the more common paper for these 1945 maps. This lively and informative map of California has place names, mountains, railroads etc marked and named, with small cartoon-like pictures (pictographs) to indicate the main attractions eg. a movie being made with a couple embracing for Hollywood, a football player for the University of California at Berkeley, and grapes and winemaking at various locations including San Bernadino and Fresno. At the upper right where Nevada would be on the map, there are pictures depicting various aspects of California life and history - all done with a great sense of humor. The frieze starts with "California's Melting Pot" depicting the people of California from historical figures (Sir Francis Drake) to the people of modern California (ending with G.I. Joes and Football Heroes). Below that is "California Transportation Throughout the Ages" from Early Spanish Caravels to "Our state-wide highway system is a mecca for tourists." In the ocean are inset pictures of the Golden Gate Bridge and S.F. Oakland Bay Bridge, and a section of 20 small images of the missions of California.

        Pipe Night

      NY: Duell, Sloan and Pearce. (1945). An uncommon book by the author of Butterfield 8 and Appointment in Samarra, among others. Inscribed by the author to WEAF radio personality Mary Margaret McBride in the year of publication: "To Mary Margaret/ and how are your/ taste-buds?/ Sincerely/ John O'Hara/ WEAF/ 20 March 1945." Books inscribed by O'Hara are uncommon, although later in his career he did a number of signed limited editions. A fragile book, cheaply produced under wartime conditions, this is a very attractive copy. Some spotting to rear board and fading to spine cloth; near fine in a very good dust jacket with a couple of small, internally tape-mended edge tears. First Edition. Hardcover.

        The Big Sea: An Autobiography [*SIGNED*]

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. Near Fine in Near Fine dj. 1945. 3rd printing. Hardcover. NOISBN . [nice clean copy, slight crimping at the spine ends and very minor bumping at the corners; jacket very lightly rubbed, minor wear evident at a couple of corners]. INSCRIBED and SIGNED (in 1948) by the author on the ffep, to noted African-American artist and collector William McBride; the inscription reads "To Bill McBride -- / my first / autobiography, / Sincerely, / Langston Hughes. / Chicago, May 22, 1949." The African-American poet/novelist/activist's first memoir, first published in 1940. (He would produce another volume, "I Wonder as I Wander," in 1956.) This later printing, at the tail end of World War II, occasioned the inclusion on the second front endpaper of "A NOTE REGARDING THE PAPER on which this book is printed," which explained that when this edition was being prepared "at a time when the kind of paper normally used for books simply was not available" due to wartime restrictions, so the publishers had gone ahead with the paper they could get, a goldenrod-colored stock (which is actually quite attractive). A nice association between two major African-American cultural figures; in addition to being a highly-regarded artist, noted for the many murals and posters he produced under WPA aegis in Chicago during the Depression, McBride assembled an outstanding collection of posters, programs and political pamphlets documenting African-American life in the city, which he ultimately donated to the Chicago Public Library.

Burman, born in Covington, Kentucky in 1896, published numerous novels set in the South, with many centered on life along the Mississippi. His earlier novel, Steamboat Round the Bend, was the basis for the 1935 film of the same name starring Will Rogers. A world traveler and veteran of both World War I and World War II, Burman was among the first correspondents to reach the Free French capital of Brazzaville in independent French Equatorial Africa during WWII, an experience that greatly informed this story. With a supplied copy of the first edition of Rooster Crows for Day (New York: E.P. Dutton 1945). .

        Na Jehlach Techto Dni (On the Needles of These Days)

      Prague: Fr. Borovy v Praze, 1945. First Trade Edition . Soft cover. Very Good. This is a very rare first trade edition of the classic photobook, \"Na Jehlach Techto Dni (On the Needles of These Days)\" published by Fr. Borovy v Praze, Prague in 1945 that was preceded by the extremely scarce clandestine self-published edition of 1941 with original tipped-in silver gelatin prints. In \"The Photobook: A History\", Parr and Badger write, \"This remains a haunting photobook, 50 years after the war. It is a prime example of one of the photobook\'s great truths--it\'s not necessarily the individual pictures that count, but what you do with them\". Commenting in the book, \"The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century\", Vince Aletti states, \"On the Needles of These Days\" is a Surrealist meditation on war and resistance. the book\'s aura of alienation, repression, and anxiety not only captured the war\'s home front theatre of the absurd, it anticipated the depth of postwar pessimism.\" Containing 28 striking heliogravures with accompanying prose by Czech poet Jindrich Heisler, the book measures approximately 8.5 x 6 inches and is bound in photographically illustrated wrappers. The condition of the book is Very Good+ with offsetting from the gravures to the text pages. The wrappers are in Very Good condition with general wear to the front and rear wraps, along the spine edges, and the tips. This is a collectible copy of a notoriously fragile photobook that is rarely found in collectible condition. Cited in all three reference books on photobooks: The Book of 101 Books: Seminal Photographic Books of the Twentieth Century by Andrew Roth, The Photobook: A History, by Parr and Badger, and The Open Book by Andrew Roth.

        "I'm Crazy" [story in Collier's, December 22, 1945]

      Springfield, Ohio: The Crowell-Collier Publishing Company. 1945. The complete story "I'm Crazy" in Collier's of December 22, 1945. Folio. A newsstand edition, not obscured by a mailing label, but with a small arrival date stamp near the title. Wrappers lightly rubbed with a touch of waviness at the top and wear at the lower front foredge with a couple of tiny nicks, very good. This issue contains the first print appearance of Salinger's classic literary creation, Holden Caulfield. The story forms the basis for the first two chapters of The Catcher in the Rye including a visit with Mr. Spencer. However, here Caulfield is portrayed as a more repentant figure lamenting his expulsion from school and with an additional sister, Viola. Accompanying the story is a half-page illustration of Caulfield, bags packed, fleeing school wearing not his red hunting cap but rather a more typical fedora. Salinger, who was always protective of his work, never allowed this or many other early stories to be reprinted. Due to this policy, his uncollected magazine appearances are always in demand and this issue, with such a direct connection to his classic novel, even more so. The true first appearance of one of the most enduring characters in American literature. .

        Animal Farm: A Fairy Story

      Secker & Warburg, London 1945 - Second edition, printed in the same month and year as the first edition (August, 1945). Green cloth, stamped white spine title. Contemporary owner's gift inscription neatly penned on front fly verso, minimal foxing, else near fine in an about very good dustwrapper with extremities worn, short tears and creases. A brilliant, classic anti-utopian short novel, in which a cast of barnyard animals reenact the events of the Russian Revolution and the betrayal of its more humane elements by Stalin. Well-adapted both as a 1955 cartoon and a 1999 cable movie using the latest animal-special effects, though both versions added upbeat endings to Orwell's harrowing vision. A presentable copy. *Connolly 100*. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
