        JEWESSES IN SLAVERY. YEHUDIYOT BA-SHI`BUD

"Lurie was liberated by the Red Army on 21 January 1945. In March 1945 she reached a camp in Italy, where she met Jewish soldiers from Palestine who were serving in the British army. One of them, the artist Menahem Shemi, organized an exhibition of drawings from the camps, which resulted in the publication of a booklet Jewesses in Slavery. This contained drawings by Lurie from Stutthof and Leibitz and was published by the Jewish Soldiers' Club of Rome in 1945. Lurie also created stage sets for the military song and dance group in the camp, which was founded by Eliahu Goldberg and Mordechai Zeira. Lurie reached Israel (Palestine) in July 1945 and was received with great excitement. Her stories were published in the press and her drawings were exhibited in exhibitions. In 1946 she was again awarded the Dizengoff Prize for a sketch Girl with Yellow Badge, which she had made in the Kovno ghetto" (World ORT and Beit Lohamei Haghetaot, 2001) .

        TLS to A.W. Brickell, Esq. on the headed paper of Faber & Faber Ltd, Feb. 6th 1945.

      1945 Six lines typed on verso only of paper, signed by Eliot in ink, with a short ('B's') pencil annotation in an unknown hand; letterhead sl. marked, old folds, a few small marginal tears.Brief letter returning a 'drawing of Shelley's home in Marlow', regretting that no suitable book for it is forthcoming, and declining to keep it on file. A.W. Brickell was an art collector, insurance broker, and associate of Graham Greene and Lloyd Osbourne. He appears to have written constant letters to famous writers, which may explain the politely detached tone of this missive from the great modernist.

Among the nicer copies I have seen.. First Edition. Oblong quarto. 104 gravure plates. Text by Edwin Denby. 500 copies printed. Although Brodovitch is best known as a graphic designer and art director, Ballet remains one of the most influential of the great twentieth century photobooks, presaging every trend in cinematic book editing, and challenging the notion that the image had to be representational of its subject. (Parr / Badger, v1, 240-241; Roth 110-111; Open Book 136-137; Auer 314).

With a supplied dust jacket, sunned to spine, lightly dust soiled and with very small chips to ends and corners. First edition, first impression, presentation copy inscribed by the compositor to H. G. Wells (1866-1946), "To My revered Political Guru Mr. H. G. Wells, one of forerunners of the world organisation. September 1945. N. Gangulee." In this small volume the editor Professor Ganguglee translated and compiled for an English audience selections from the writings of Sun Yat-Sen (1866-1925), the revolutionary founding father of the Republic of China. The inscription to Wells as "one of the forerunners of the world organisation" is appropriate. In his utopian fiction and non-fiction Wells had long prophesied the coming of some form of World Organisation - his best-selling book, The Outline of History (1919) claimed to the first transnational history of mankind, and its 24th chapter envisioned a future "United States of the World". He continued this prophetic theme in several books throughout the 20s and 30s, and thus this book's appearance and presentation at the close of the Second World War (just before Wells's death), as the United Nations was being founded, is appropriate. The wording of Wells's The Rights of Man (1940) was closely followed for the 1948 United Nations Declaration of Human Rights. Gulangee's printed dedication in the book here is: "To the Youth of the United Nations for the guidance in understanding the spirit and form of the Chinese Revolution and the Chinese Republic". This book is one of several from the library of H. G. Wells that were sent to his illegitimate daughter Anna-Jane Kennard (1909-2010), the product of his 1908-9 extramarital affair with feminist author Amber Reeves (1887-1981). Well's novel Ann Veronica (1909) is based on his affair with Reeves. Kennard did not know the true identity of her father throughout her childhood and adolescence, but eventually they met. On 6 March 1931 Wells wrote to his daughter: "My dear, I think that you and I have to come to perfectly frank dealings with each other: let us clear up the situation. For 19 years I have been doing my best to ignore your existence because of various humiliating and baffling things that occurred when you were born. Now I have met you, I love you very much." At, or shortly before, Wells's death in 1946, perhaps as a fitting gesture recognising their connection, several boxes of books from the author's library were sent to his daughter, then living in her mother's native New Zealand. This copy has her ink ownership inscription "Kennard" to the rear free endpaper.

Zitat: "Als Anfang Mai 1945 der Zweite Weltkrieg beendet war, hatte es Nierendorf trotz aller Widrigkeiten geschafft: die Galerie in New York war fest etabliert, er hatte Klee, Kandinsky, Feininger, Hofer, Scharl, Lehmbruck u. a. in Amerika zur Anerkennung verholfen, ihre Werke wurden von amerikanischen Museen ausgestellt und von neuen Sammlern erworben. Seine erste, vermutlich im Oktober 1945 gezeigte Ausstellung nach Kriegsende, "Forbidden Art in the Third Reich", diente wieder der Bewußtmachung. Doch diesmal ging es darum, was das gerade ausgelöschte Dritte Reich der Kunst im Namen der "Reinhaltung" der deutschen Kultur angetan hatte und was es Kunstliebhabern in aller Welt trotzdem nicht hatte rauben können: die Verbundenheit mit der deutschen modernen Kunst." Zitat Ende. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Four collections of illustrated satirical anti-Nazi epigrams published during the last months of the German occupation of Czechoslovakia: 1. Herrenvolk. 11 epigram pana Jaroslava o teutonských spasitelích sveta [10 epigrams about the Teutonic saviors of the world]. 2. Herrenvolk. 26 epigramu o teutonských spasitelích sveta [26 epigrams about the Teutonic saviors of the world. Written 1939-1945]. 3. Epigramatikuv životní román [The epigrammarian's life story]. 4. Klání a porubání, nevázané myšlenky a řeči vázané [Battle and butchery, unconnected ideas and connected speeches]. Further included is a Christmas greeting card, with a drawing by Fr. Bidlo, published in December 1944

      Czechoslovakia (Jaromer): Václav Vavra; F. R. Ždárský, 1945. Various sizes, from 15 × 20 to 14.5 × 11.2 cm). Original embossed or printed card and paper wrappers; one title rebound preserving original wrapper and flaps; 12 leaves of full-page color plates with text to versos; 35, [4]; [35]; and 48, [3] pp. respectively. Two titles (3 and 4) signed and inscribed by the author. Four curious and scarce volumes of satirical anti-German epigrams, one of them with striking full-page color caricatures, others illustrated by the well-known caricaturist František Bidlo (1895-1945). All books were ostensibly written during the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia and published right after the end of World War II ("in the beginning of the demise of the German master race," according to the colophon). Nos. 3 and 4 even claim to have been published -- obviously at great personal risk to anyone involved -- in late 1944 and in January of 1945, in "The Reich", and one bears an inscription dated July 8, 1944. The epigrams, in turns witty, silly, or plain graphomanic, are often puns on Nazi slogans; a few are partly or completely in German, e.g.: "Kennst Du das Land, wo Neid und Dummheit blüht? / Du kennst es nicht? - Es heisst Sudetengebiet." After annexing the Sudeten region in 1938, Hitler proceeded to invade the Czechoslovak Republic in 1939, establishing the Protectorate that fell only with Germany's capitulation after the war. According to KVK and OCLC, 1. is held by Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, Hoover and Yale, 2. only by Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, and 3. and 4. can be found at the Czech National Library and Bayerische Staatsbibliothek.
