        Il Canzoniere (1900-1945).

      - Roma, Giulio Einaudi, 1945. In 8vo (cm. 20). Legatura originale di lusso in tela grezza con tassello rosso e tit. in oro; pp. 610 (2). Questa edizione, in parte originale, fu a lungo desiderata da Saba, che negli anni '20 e '30 aveva più volte avviato trattative con vari editori, tra cui Preda e Carabba, per un nuovo "Canzoniere" esteso alla produzione della maturità e in copenso allegerito nelle parti iniziali. Purtroppo, nemmeno il Sba libraio poté essere soddisfatto si una veste editoriale che risentiva delle ristrettezze del tempo di guerra, la carta grigiastra appariva "sudicia" ai suoi occhi e la legatura si dimostrò approssimativa in parecchi esemplari. Per rimediare, almeno in parte, a quest'ultimo difetto, l'editore fece legare in tela rigida alcune centinaia delle 2900 copie della tiratura. G. castellani, Bibl. delle ediz. orig. di U. Saba,

        WARS I HAVE SEEN. Signed.

      Batsford, London 1945 - [Beaton, Cecil] Stein, Gertrude. WARS I HAVE SEEN. Signed. London: Batsford, 1945. "A nice war is a war where everybody who is heroic is a hero, and everybody more or less is a hero in a nice war". First Edition. 8vo., 191pp. Blue cloth stamped darker blue title to spine. A near fine copy in a superb, bright panorama dustwrapper illustrated by Cecil Beaton. [Bookseller's sticker at the top of the inside flap]. Inscribed in a later hand by Stein in blue fountain pen at the bottom of her Cecil Beaton frontis. portrait, to John James, an American journalist living in France to whom she inscribed a number of books: "To John James who says Ma''am so ? from Kentucky / Always / Gertrude Stein / May / 46". Stein lived until July of 1946. Probably the toughest Stein A Item to find signed & virtually impossible to find as a Presentation Copy. An extremely good example. In "Wars I Have Seen" (1945), her memoir of the Second World War, Gertrude Stein writes of the remarkable kindness of a young Frenchman named Paul Genin, the owner of a silk factory in Lyons and a country neighbor, who came to her after America entered the war and asked if she needed money. She did - the funds from America on which she and Alice B. Toklas depended no longer arrived - and he offered her a matching monthly stipend. Stein and Toklas lived on Genin's kindness for six months, after which Stein sold a Cézanne ("quite quietly to some one who came to see me") and no longer needed money. "And so I thanked Paul Genin and paid him back and he said if you ever need me just tell me, and that was that." [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Folded Leaf

      New York: Harper and Brothers. 1945. First. First edition. Fine in a presentable, about very good dustwrapper with shallow chipping at the extremities and a scrape on the spine. The author's third book, a cheaply produced wartime novel. This copy Inscribed in the year of publication to his longtime colleague, Berton Roueche, with a passage from the novel: "March, 1945. For Berton Roueche with best regards, Bill Maxwell. 'If pursued, the truth withdraws, puts on one false face after another, and finally goes underground where it can only be got at in the complex, agonizing absurdity of dreams.'" A wonderful inscription, and an important association. Dr. Roueche wrote about medicine and public health for The New Yorker in the 1940s and '50s, and was especially known for his narrative of doctors as detectives confronting mysterious illnesses and environmental health issues. His work helped to spawn a genre that has since extended to detective fiction, television, and movies. .

        Lord's Prayer

      NY 1945 - A stunning original painting in ink and gouache by the renowned illustrator Arthur Szyk, signed and dated by the artist. The painting measures 7 3/4 by 5 3/4 inches, on illustration board measuring 12 by 9 1/4 inches. This illustrated Lord’s Prayer is comprised of fourteen calligraphed lines, illuminated in bright colors in the style of a medieval manuscript. Along the left margin of the page is an intricate border, incorporating portraits of people praying, including a little boy kneeling with his hands folded. A floral border extends along the bottom of the page, and tiny, delicate curls of tracery fill in the border and extend along the top edge. Szyk’s work is characterized by its minute detail, and his style is very much in the tradition of Eastern miniaturists. Szyk was born in Lodz, Poland in 1894. His artistic talents became evident at an early age, and he was sent to Paris to study at the Académie Julian when he was a teenager. He was a prolific illustrator of books, many of which were of Jewish content, including his masterpiece, The Haggadah. After World War II, Szyk moved to the United States, where he became one of the chief artists for the Limited Editions Club and contributed illustrations and caricatures to several magazines. This illustration was published in the January 1946 edition of Coronet magazine, inside the front cover. Mounted and framed. On the sheet of illustration board, around the illustration, are publisher’s notes. Two small spots of tape residue, light soiling to margins, light toning; the painting is in fine condition.

The full, brown leather binding features a standing figure of a Colonial Ranger with a long rifle, on the front and back covers, the details are carved into the leather, on a hand-tooled, stippled, darker brown background; the spine features two carved leather long-rifles in darker brown, with stamped titling in dark brown, top-edge stained brown, sewn headbands, dark brown, suede-covered endpapers; in a dark brown, leather-textured cloth wrap-around chemise, with a lighter brown, leather title label, and a brown suede lining.

The color of leather and the designs, chosen by inventive Czech bookbinder Jan Sobota, are meant to evoke a Colonial American bookbinding, the dress and arms of the period of the French & Indian War, and that of Rogers' Rangers, who figure in the story.

W. Julhès, Maurice William Julhès pour faire plus américain. [Sannois, 1896 – Boulogne, 1985]. Passe par les Arts décos et les Beaux-Arts. Dessinateur humoristique, en peu de temps, inonde la presse d’une production abondante et talentueuse. Monte une auberge dans la vallée du Sausseron où ses amis dessinateurs trouvent gîte et couvert, venant de temps en temps à Paris porter ses œuvres. Sociétaire des Humoristes, expose au Satire. Travaille beaucoup dans les journaux paraissant sous l’Occupation en zone nord, ce qui lui vaut deux ans de suspension à la Libération. D’assez personnel à ces débuts, son style tend à s’approprier celui de Gus Bofa. En 1947, donne vie à Monsieur Lezognard, en gags d’une page publiée par Pierrot. Illustrateur, n’est quasiment publié que dans des ouvrages de bibliophilie à tirage limité, pour Honoré de Balzac (Le Curé d'Azay-le-Rideau), Charles Baudelaire, Arthur Rimbaud, Boris Vian, Paul Verlaine, Marcel Grancher (5 de Campagne, Chez l'Auteur, Cannes, 1960, tirage limité à 600 exemplaires numérotés) et Pierre Louÿs.

Maurice Coriem dans sa longue et passionnante préface de Coïncidences parle d'un exemplaire unique et original des Fleurs du Mal de Baudelaire, enlevé par un mécène bibliophile. *** Maurice Julhès a aussi illustré des livres pour enfants.

        HISTORICAL RECORDS OF THE SURVEY OF INDIA. Volumes 1 to 4

      Survey of India, Dehra Dun 1945 - These four volumes provide effectively the complete set. Although a volume 5 was produced it was quickly withdrawn by the Indian Government for political reasons and it is thought that only a handful of original copies survive although photocopies occasionally appear. The four volumes were produced over a long period and span the period of independence, III & IV being produced after 1948 and thus lacking the crown from the Survey of India badge on the front covers. Vol I 18th Century [pub. 1945]: Maps to endpapers, 19 other plates including folding maps (some coloured), xx.400pp, 16pp unnumbered index. An excellent copy in the original green cloth gilt, the upper board gilt blocked with the badge of the Survey of India, very minor wear at extremiites, internally very clean. Vol II 1800-1815 [pub. 1950]: maps to endpapers, 22 other plates (some coloured, some folding maps), xxvii (including addenda & corrigenda for vol I), 478pp. bound as vol 1 [including the imperial crown on the badge despite a post independence date - the Survey is still rather traditional], very minor wear to extremities, internally very clean. Vol III 1815 to 1830 [pub. 1954], maps to endpapers, 22 other plates [some folding maps, some coloured), xxii (including addenda & corrigendas to vols I & II), 534pp. Bound as the previou vols but the badge on the front board has the imperial crown replaced with the current Indian crest joined triple lions, very minor wear to extremities, internally very clean. Vol IV 1830 to 1843 GEORGE EVEREST [pub, 1958] maps to endpapers, 19 other plates (some folding maps, some coloured), xviii including addenda & corrigenda to previous volumes), 493pp.I, a little damage with small loss of cloth surface to extreme top corners of front and back boards, internally very clean. Volumes 1, 2 & 3 have a small ownership signature to the top corner of the front free endpaper - no other ownership markings. The first four volumes were published over a 15 year period: they are seldom found together and the fifth volume was suppressed by the Government of India. The definitive work on the Survey of India and earlier cartographers. In the first volume Surveys are dealt with logically by province and there are informative chapters on surveying instruments. There is a 100pp section of detailed biographies of such important figures in Indian map making as Rennell, Beatson, Dalrymple, Orme, Kelly, Martin, Pearse, Reynolds, Topping, Turner, Wood, and Mackenzie. Chapter V "Beyond the Barriers" deals with early attempts at mapping in the Himalayas, Tibet (a folding map of Ladakh to Lhasa from the Lamas' map of 1733 is included), sources of the Ganges & Gogra, Bogle & Turner, Nepal, Assam, Wels's Expedition 1792-4, Eastern Frontier, Burma.
