        Animal Farm: A Fairy Story

      London: Secker & Warburg. 1945. Second edition, printed in the same month and year as the first edition (August, 1945). Green cloth, stamped white spine title. Contemporary owner's gift inscription neatly penned on front fly verso, minimal foxing, else near fine in an about very good dustwrapper with extremities worn, short tears and creases. A brilliant, classic anti-utopian short novel, in which a cast of barnyard animals reenact the events of the Russian Revolution and the betrayal of its more humane elements by Stalin. Well-adapted both as a 1955 cartoon and a 1999 cable movie using the latest animal-special effects, though both versions added upbeat endings to Orwell's harrowing vision. A presentable copy. Connolly 100. .

Size of the binding: 5 1/2 in. x 8 1/8 in. x 2 1/8 in., 498+ pp. (publisher's colophon page); 2 fold-out maps with Czech titling, showing (1) Rogers' 1759 St. Francois route, & (2) North America (but not Mexico), 1765. In a striking carved leather binding by Jan Sobota, with his stamp on the back paste-down endpaper. 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 novel, about Major Robert Rogers' (1731-95) expedition, was a source for the 1940 King Vidor film, based on the first part of this book. 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.

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. Other chapters include General Narrative, Bengal Surveys (3 chapters, 1579-1777, 1777-94, 1793-1800), Madras Surveys (2 chapters - to 1788 and 1788-1800), Bombay Surveys, Revenue Surveys, Professional Methods of Survey, Maps of India, Maps of Bengal, Maps of Madras & Bombay, Map construction and preservation, The Surveyor Generals, Surveyors. Whereas Vol I has much on Bengal, Madras and Bombay, Vol II extends to include chapters on Upper Provinces and Oudh, the North West Frontier, Himalaya Mountains, etc . There is a good deal here on Lambton and his Survey. There are 80pp of biographical notes on surveyors of the period. Vol III continues the narrative and has additional chapters on Mountain Provinces, North East Frontier, Burma, Again there about 80pp of biogrpahy. Vol IV continues the narrative and the expanding wortk of the surveys (especially the detailed revenue surveys on which the Company was so dependent. It covers the long period of office of George Everest as Surveyor General but there are biographies of other surveyors too, [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        "I&#39;m Crazy" [story in Collier&#39;s, December 22, 1945]

      Springfield, Ohio: The Crowell-Collier Publishing Company. 1945. The complete story "I&#39;m Crazy" in Collier&#39;s of December 22, 1945. Folio. A newsstand edition, not obscured by a mailing label, but with a small arrival date stamp near the title. Wrappers lightly rubbed with a touch of waviness at the top and wear at the lower front foredge with a couple of tiny nicks, very good. This issue contains the first print appearance of Salinger&#39;s classic literary creation, Holden Caulfield. The story forms the basis for the first two chapters of The Catcher in the Rye including a visit with Mr. Spencer. However, here Caulfield is portrayed as a more repentant figure lamenting his expulsion from school and with an additional sister, Viola. Accompanying the story is a half-page illustration of Caulfield, bags packed, fleeing school wearing not his red hunting cap but rather a more typical fedora. Salinger, who was always protective of his work, never allowed this or many other early stories to be reprinted. Due to this policy, his uncollected magazine appearances are always in demand and this issue, with such a direct connection to his classic novel, even more so. The true first appearance of one of the most enduring characters in American literature. .

        Proclamation

      A Proclamation of German SurrenderSigned by TrumanHarry S. Truman A Proclamation of German Surrender, Signed. One page printed document, signed. Broadside on wove paper. Measures 21 3/8\" x 14 3/8\". ( Matted to an overall size of 24\" x 30\".) Washington, May 8, 1945. Gothic types with roman, heading, title, and incipit, text in two columns, printed in black with gold, red and blue. A multicolored lithograph of President Truman\'s proclamation of May 13, 1945, as a day of prayer following the end of the war in Europe. In full:\"The Allied armies, through sacrifice and devotion and with God\'s help, have wrung from Germany a final and unconditional surrender. The western world has been freed of the evil forces which for five years and longer have imprisoned the bodies and broken the lives of millions upon millions of free-born men. They have violated their churches, destroyed their homes, corrupted their children, and murdered their loved ones. Our Armies of Liberation have restored freedom to these suffering peoples, whose spirit and will the oppressors could never enslave. Much remains to be done. The victory won in the West must now be won in the East. The whole world must be cleansed of the evil from which half the world has been freed. United, the peace-loving nations have demonstrated in the West that their arms are stronger by far than the might of dictators or the tyranny of military cliques that once called us soft and weak. The power of our peoples to defend themselves against all enemies will be proved in the Pacific was as it has been proved in Europe. For the triumph of spirit and of arms which we have won, and of its promise to peoples everywhere who join us in the love of freedom, it is fitting that we, as a nation, give thanks to Almighty God, Who has strengthened us and given us the victory. Now, therefore, I, Harry S. Truman, President of the United States of America, do hereby appoint Sunday, May 13, 1945 to be a day of prayer. I call upon the people of the United States, whatever their faith, to unite in offering joyful thanks to God for the victory we have won and to pray that He will support us to the end of our present struggle and guide us into the ways of peace. I also call upon my countrymen to dedicate this day of prayer to the memory of those who have given their lives to make possible our victory. In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States of America to be affixed.\"President Truman read this proclamation at a news conference held in his office at the White House at 8:35 A.M. on Tuesday, May 8, 1945. His wife and daughter, members of his Cabinet, high ranking United States and British Army and Navy officials, and Congressional leaders were grouped in chairs around the President\'s desk. Before reading the proclamation, President Truman said, \"This is a solemn but glorious hour. General Eisenhower informs me that the forces of Germany have surrendered to the United Nations. The flags of freedom fly all over Europe. It\'s celebrating my birthday, too -- today, too.\" Reporters responded with shouts of \"Happy Birthday, Mr. President.\" As he was reading the proclamation, he stopped after certain passages to comment. After \"...The victory won in the West must now be won in the East...\" he said, \"I want that emphasized time after time, that we are only half through.\" After \"...the tyranny of military cliques that once called us soft and weak...\" Truman commented, \"I would like to know what the Germans think about that now.\" After proclaiming the day of prayer, he added, \"And it\'s exceedingly fitting that it is Mother\'s Day, too.\"This is Truman\'s Christmas Gift Print that he gave out to 100 people on Christmas.HBS 66485.$15,000
