      New York: J.J. Augustin Publisher, 1945. Decorative bookplate to the front pastedown visible between the flaps of the jacket, lightly bumped at the bottom right corner; a fresh and close to fine copy in a bright near fine example of the fragile French-folded jacket with light wear at the spine ends.

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.

        The Teachings.

      London: The Sylvan Press,, 1945. Selection from his writings Compiled and introduced by Professor N. Gangulee, formerly of the University of Calcutta. Foreword by His Excellency Dr. V. K. Wellington Koo, the Chinese Ambassador in Great Britain. Small octavo. Original yellow cloth, titles to spine and front in orange. With the dust jacket, supplied. Photographic portrait frontispiece. Cloth mottled particularly around the spine, split to cloth at rear joint, a poor copy. 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."

        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.

        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 ?ivotní román [The epigrammarian's life story]. 4. Klání a porubání, nevázané my?lenky a ?e?i 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. ?dárský, 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 Franti?ek 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."

        The Doll's House; A Dill Pickle; Psychology [Illustrated Typescript of 3 Short Stories]

      NP, NP - NP: NP. F Manuscript. H Half Leather. Very Good. This unique hand-made book is composed of three Katherine Mansfield short stories, with text hand-typed in a small sans serif face, illustrated with seven original paintings and drawings. The short stories are "The Doll's House", "A Dill Pickle", and "Psychology". The typed text averages 36 lines per page. The work is bound in half brown morocco over matching cloth. It is near fine, with only the faintest traces of wear. [6 blank], [45] pages of text and plates, [5 blank], broken up into 3 sections each irregularly paginated as 9 pages. Includes 7 original drawings and paintings, in watercolor, gouache, and ink. Though unsigned, the art demonstrates considerable skill. Some are abstract, some figurative. Two are on red paper, one on gray. The remainder of the work is largely on a cream Crane's laid stock. Though Crane's is based in the US, their cotton- based rag has long been popular in the UK and Europe. There are no identifying marks in the work, and in fact Mansfield's name itself does not appear. A delightful puzzle. We estimate the date to be ca. 1945 to 1955. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        La Diane Française

      1945 - First trade edition. 8vo., later blue cloth. Paris, Editions Pierre Seghers. Inscribed by the author to the poet Frances Cornford: ?à Mme Frances Cornford, pour la remercier du mal que je lui donne. Aragon? In 1945 Arthur Koestler republished an intemperate article, 'Le Catarrhe français', attacking Aragon, his communist co-surrealists, and their English supporters. He specifically contrasted their politics of the salon with the commitment (to the point of death) shown by John Cornford in the Spanish Civil War. Aragon must have assumed that Frances Cornford (John's mother) was equally hostile. In fact she was a great enthusiast for his work and that year published a translation of one of his poems and this contrite inscription is probably his acknowledgment. An excellent copy, spine slightly faded and marked. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Anthony McAuliffe

      February 18. [1945]. Original V-Mail, one page, 4.25” x 5.25”. Sent by Major General Anthony C. McAuliffe to Mrs. Rex Chandler, 208 Crescent, San Antonio 2, Texas. APO NYC, February 18 [1945]. Horizontal fold for mailing. Fine condition.<br /><br />In full, <I>“Dear Anne: Thanks very much for your note and good wishes. Thanks also for your kindness to Jack. He wrote that he had a wonderful Christmas with you, for which I’m most grateful. The news from Manila has thrilled the world and I’m not surprised to read that 1st Cav & 11th Airborne are doing great work there. Please congratulate Rex for me on his Silver star. I know he’s doing a job. I never climb into one of our marvelous cub airplanes that I don’t think of Rex. He really forced the army to buy them. Love to you, your Mother, Bobby and Anne. Sincerely Tony.”</I> In the upper right: From <I>“Maj Gen A C McAuliffe, 103d Dist, APO 470, NYC. Feb 18.”</I><br /><br />On January 31, 1945, in the Philippines, two regiments of the 11th Airborne Division made an airborne assault, capturing a bridge, and later advanced towards Manila. On February 3rd, the 1st Cavalry Division, commanded by Brig. Gen. Chandler, captured the bridge across Tullahan River leading to the city. They advanced into the Philippine capital that evening beginning the Battle of Manila which ended almost three years of Japanese military occupation in the Philippines and marked Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s promised return.<br /><br />Before the war, Anthony McAuliffe and Rex E. Chandler were Captains, First Field Artillery, stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. Chandler was promoted to Brigadier General in early 1945 (referred to in this letter: “Silver star”). Brigadier General McAuliffe was serving as Commander of Division Artillery of the 101st Airborne Division when he parachuted into Normandy on D-Day and when he replied “Nuts!” to a formal German surrender ultimatum six months later on December 22, 1944.<br /><br />From the National Postal Museum of the Smithsonian Institution: “V or Victory mail, was a valuable tool for the military during World War II. The process, which originated in England, was the microfilming of specially designed letter sheets. Instead of using valuable cargo space to ship whole letters overseas, microfilmed copies were sent in their stead and then ‘blown up’ at an overseas destination before being delivered to military personnel mail ensured that thousands of tons of shipping space could be reserved for war materials. The 37 mail bags required to carry 150,000 one-page letters could be replaced by a single mail sack. The weight of that same amount of mail was reduced dramatically from 2,575 pounds to a mere 45. The blue-striped cardboard containers held V-mail letter forms. <br /><br />“The system of microfilming letters was based on the use of special V-mail letter-sheets, which were a combination of letter and envelope. The letter-sheets were constructed and gummed so as to fold into a uniform and distinctively marked envelope. The user wrote the message in the limited space provided, added the name and address of the recipient, folded the form, affixed postage, if necessary, and mailed the letter. V-mail correspondence was then reduced to thumb-nail size on microfilm. The rolls of film were sent to prescribed destinations for developing at a receiving station near the addressee. Finally, individual facsimiles of the letter-sheets were reproduced about one-quarter the original size and the miniature mail was then delivered to the addressee.<br />

        [Photograph]: African-American Aviator. Circa 1945

      Wichita Falls, Texas: Raley Portraits, 1945. Fine. Portrait photograph of an African-American aviator. Measuring 3" x 5" gelatin silver print. Fine in about fine card frame and name of "Raley Portraits" on both mount and verso of the image. The unidentified aviator is pictured wearing a leather helmet and goggles, white scarf, and leather flight jacket. The patch on the jacket indicates that he served with the Army Airways Communications System (AACS) which began in 1943. While the patch is missing the white border that indicates post-WWII service, we cannot confirm the exact date of the photo. The aviator is unidentified, but with presumably a relatively small number of African-American pilots thus employed, further identification might require only some modest research.

        The Teachings. Selection from his writings Compiled and introduced by Professor N. Gangulee, formerly of the University of Calcutta. Foreword by His Excellency Dr. V. K. Wellington Koo, the Chinese Ambassador in Great Britain.

      London: The Sylvan Press, 1945 - Small octavo. Original yellow cloth, titles to spine and front in orange. With the dust jacket, supplied. Cloth mottled particularly around the spine, split to cloth at rear joint, a poor copy. With a supplied dust jacket, sunned to spine, lightly dust soiled and with very small chips to ends and corners. Photographic portrait frontispiece. 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        SÁRGA KÖNYV. ADATOK A MAGYAR ZSIDÓSÁG HÁBORÚS SZENVEDÉSEIBOL. 1941-1945.

      Hechaluc kiadás. Budapest. 1945. (1945) . Original Illustrated Paper Wrappers, Small 8vo, 216 pages. Eredeti borítóval. Includes 9 powerful original linocut illustrations, and cover design, by Shagra Weil. Also includes a bit of music.Title translates as "The Yellow Book. Data on the War Losses of Hungarian Jewry. 1941-1945." One of the earliest book about the Hungarian Holocaust. Published by Hechaluc (Hehalutz), the Zionist resistant movement, whose legendary headquarters was located at the Üvegház (Glasshouse) in Budapest, a former glass-store. During the Holocaust about 3000 people found shelter there and it was the center for producing fake identification documents to save Hungarian Jews from persecution. Shraga Weil (Ferenc Ferdinánd; 1918-2009) was a Hungarian born Israeli painter. He studied at the Academy of Art in Prague and École des Beaux Arts in Paris. During WWII he was active in the Zionist underground movement in Budapest, working in the workshop for forging documents. After the war he sailed for Palestine on an illegal immigrant ship and became a member of Kibbutz Ha'ogen where he lived until his death. In 1959 Weil was awarded the Dizengoff Prize for painting. He created the doors of the main entrance to the Knesset building and the President's residence in Jerusalem. Weil painted the wooden panels in the Israeli Hall at the Kennedy Center. Sándor Groszmann (Alexander Grossmann, Ben Erec; 1909-2003) was a journalist and publisher, one of the main activists of the Hungarian Zionist movement and co-founder of "Hashomer Hatzair" in Hungary. He was one of the leaders at the "Glasshouse". "When the argument arose about whether to absorb more Jews into the 'Glass House' as they might endanger the lives of those already living there, he said: 'For the sake of one hundred thousand Jews it is worth to endanger our own lives'". (Gur, D.; 2007). After the liberation he was the secretary of JDC (American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee) in Budapest and member of the board of the Hungarian Zionist Association and of the "Eretz-Israel" office. In 1949 he left Hungary and after living in Austria and Israel he settled down in Switzerland where he started to publish books and the periodical "Jöv?" (Future).
