        Day of Paris

      New York: J.J. Augustin. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. FIRST EDITION, complete with 103 evocative black and white Kertész photographs and the rare original dust jacket designed by Alexey Brodovitch. "In 1945, when André Kertész published Day of Paris, his first book in America, he'd been living in New York for nearly a decade. Like so many other exiled European artists, he'd left Paris before the German invasion, so the photographs in his book were all taken in the late 1920s and early 1930s. Arranged in a loose progression from morning to afternoon to night, these pictures of a peaceful, bustling city were particularly poignant, coming as thy did at the end of the war, and their nostalgia was certainly part of their appeal. Though Day of Paris is full of cityscapes... the photographer is always alert to the human heart of the city, and even his pictures of figures passing on the street are engaging... Some of Kertész's most famous photos (the disconcertingly fragmented view through a glass clock face at the Louvre, the surreal suburban scene with viaduct and toylike train) are included here." Alexey Brodovitch "provides a leisurely understated design that allows for double spreads. shrewd juxtapositions, and unexpectedly grand expanses of white space for this small format" (Roth 101). Parr/Badger, Vol I, p.200. New York: J.J. Augustin, 1945. Quarto (242x110mm / 9.5x7in), original cloth, original dust jacket. Cloth with mild discoloration to top of rear board (as often), residue of tape on the front and rear free endpapers; dust jacket with light edgewear and a few patches of browning to spine. An excellent copy of a notoriously difficult book to find in collectible condition.

        WW II Passover Archive: Four items from U.S. Army Chaplain Max A. Braude's 1945 Seder Service [UNIQUE]

      NP, France 1945 - Collection of four items documenting the April 4th 1945 Passover Seder celebration organized in France for the Jewish soldiers by U.S. Seventh Army Lieutenant Colonel Chaplain Max A. Braude. 1) Braude's typed letter, addressed to "Darling" and dated Friday Afternoon 23 March 1945 enthusiastically recounts the "fun" of planning a Seder under conditions that are in "a constant state of flux.Several days ago we had not as yet received Haggadahs for Passover so yours truly ingeniously decided to photostat the haggadah portion of the abridged prayer book - except that there was no one to do offset printing and so a cut was made which should have been perfect except as you see no one could read Hebrew - so the Hebrew Text is UPSIDE DOWN - yet I think - in fact I am almost certain that it represents (sic) the first Hebrew Printing on the Continent since its liberation." The letter also mentions his sermons for Friday evening services, asks his darling to "keep a little space beside you for me" and concludes with ".above all, my dear, pray as I do that this will be our last Seder apart; and let's make the next one the biggest best that ever was anywhere." 2) 4pp. English/Hebrew text for the Seder service (including the upside-down Hebrew text mentioned in Braude's letter, taken from the "Prayer Book Abridged for the Jews in the Armed Forces of the United States") entitled "Seder Service For The Eve of Passover" with the insignia of the United States Seventh Army (known as the Pyramid of Power, or Seven Steps to Hell). 3) The U.S. Army Jewish chaplain's cloth banner (36" x 23") that hung as wall decoration at the Seder. Dark blue fabric onto which is hand sewn two appliqués of white cloth: the Star of David and the tablets of the Ten Commandments containing roman numerals I-X created in zigzag machine stitching. "CH (Lt. Col.) M. A. Braude 031036" handwritten in pen on the white border at right edge. 4) Vintage silver-gelatin photograph of Braude (third from left) with three officials at the 1945 Seder, standing near the banner, with French and American flags overhead. 4.75" x 3.75"Photograph in fine condition. Letter stained at lower right, not affecting text. Haggadah pages age toned, with small chips at edges and strengthened with Japanese tissue along folds. Banner cloth dotted with small holes, otherwise good condition. A unique and poignant collection, with personal, military and religious significance. Max A. Braude (1913-1982), an Orthodox rabbi, was the highest-ranking American Jewish chaplain during World War II. After the war he worked with displaced persons and later served as director of the World ORT Union and director-general of its international office in Geneva. In his capacity with ORT he headed the overseas operations of the approximately 600 ORT trade schools and other technical and vocational services. These programs operated in Europe and Israel as well as in Muslim countries such as Iran. Braude also served as an ICVA officer, and earlier, was the Assistant to the Director of Training at the U.S. Army Chaplain School.

        Autograph Letter Signed ("John") to Burgess Meredith and Paulette Goddard, from Cuernavaca, regarding the filming of THE PEARL, and other matters

      Hotel Marik, Cuernavaca, Mexico, "june - (toward the front)", [1945] - UNPUBLISHED letter written from Cuernavaca, while Steinbeck was in Mexico "riding herd" on the shooting of the film version of THE PEARL Dear Buzzy and Paulette: I've forgotten where you live. I've forgotten Milly's [i.e., LEWIS MILESTONE'S] street number too but at least I remember his street. We don't live at the hotel but we get our mail there. I know Paulette knows the place. We have a little house with a big garden about half a mile from the plaza - very pleasant. Will be here until October I guess. We don't start shooting [THE PEARL] until August. I don't suppose there is much chance of your coming down after you finish the Chambermaid [ Meredith's DIARY OF A CHAMBERMAID]. Blumey was asking about you the other night when we were in town. We're getting lots of sun and oddly enough a lot of work done, a thing I can hardly believe. I wonder how your film ["Diary of A Chambermaid"] goes. I have some ideas for the future - too many but perhaps worth discussing some time. Tom grows like a bloody weed. He is so black we will have trouble getting him into a hotel in Georgia. And he is very strong and no intellectual company whatever. Gwyn thrives here. Anyway, we'll see our picture through here and then go on to New York in October and after that we have no plans. . The grapevine has nice things to say about your picture. And Renoir is a great man. I've always wanted to work with him. The rains are just starting here and the fine big clouds all day. It's pretty wonderful. Please give our love to Kendal and Milly. And to yourselves.

        An Astonished Eye Looks Out of the Air

      Waldport, Oregon: Untide Press. 1945. First. First edition, first impression. Wrappers with applied title piece. Some tape shadows to the wrappers, one staple pulled through, else a very good copy. The first printing of 1800 copies was rendered unfit for release through a printer's error. All were destroyed except for about 70 copies, which were distributed with the second impression, with no known differentiation. Eventually 23 copies of the 70 copies of the first impression came into Patchen's hand, and he created a limited edition of 11 copies, with a hand-lettered limitation page (where Patchen relates this sequence of events). This is copy number 2 of the 11, and is Signed by the author. Additionally Inscribed by the author: "for Arthur, a good human being whose friend I am proud to be. Kenneth. June 21, 1946." The recipient was Arthur Sturcke, a now little-remembered painter and pacifist who exhibited in the 1930s and 1940s, and who did much to help and support Patchen. Patchen mentions him in his book Memoirs of a Shy Pornographer in a dialogue discussing art and artists: "And what about DeNiro? There is a serious young painter. All right what about Kamrowski? -- Or Lee Bell? Or Jackson Pollock? -- Or Arthur Sturcke?" Beautifully printed small collection of poems printed in a conscientious objectors' camp. Rare. .

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1945. First. First edition. Fine in modestly age-toned, near fine dustwrapper with a short tear at one fold. Nicely Inscribed by the author to an important literary editor: "My venerable colleague Bernard Smith to recall our joint sweating for art and truth. H.L. Mencken. Aug. 20, 1945." Smith was editor-in-chief at Knopf where he was known for editing B. Traven, Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, Langston Hughes, and many others. In 1947 he migrated to Hollywood where he was involved in the production of such films as How the West Was Won, Elmer Gantry, and Cheyenne Autumn. Smith shared a sometimes contentious relationship with the sharp-tongued Mencken, who once called Smith "a Jew, and moreover, a jackass." A significant association. .

Squarish 8vo, decorated black and red wrappers, pp. 100. 38 pp. of dramatic black and white reproductions. Very uncommon thus. Poem by Francois Hertel, philosophical argument by Leger, critical text by Maurice Gagnon, M. A. Couturier, S. Giedion, S. M. Kootz and James Johnson Sweeney. Entire text In French. The international art community recognized a half century ago, the truly momentous contribution made by Alfred Pellan, to the arts and none more so than Leger himself, whom Pellan called both an inspirational colleague and a dear friend. During the war years, Leger spent time in North America, living for a brief period in Montreal, where he had an opportunity to enjoy Pellan's company as they had during Pellan's Paris years. Leger Presentations are Rare and Association Copies Impossible to acquire. A fine copy showing just a hint of rubbing. Superb. [27120] $5250 [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        POSTER - Plaza de Toros de Vista-Alegre - Bilbao

      Ortega, Valencia 1945 - This is not a book but a wonderfully colourful ORIGINAL 1945 Spanish Bullfighting Poster. Measuring 99cm x 54.5cm, it is by Ibanez Palau and it advertises a bullfighting event in Bilbao for 11 March 1945 starring the matadors Fernando Nino del Barrio II, Gumer Galvan and Pepe Canto. 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. The brittle poster, whilst all original, has folds and creases, as well as damage to the right and bottom edges. 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.
