        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 .

        [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.

        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.
