        This Hunger (limited edition of 50)

      New York: Gemor Press, 1945 New York: Gemor Press, 1945. First Edition. Signed by Nin and by illustrator "Ian Hugo", that being also her first husband, Hugh Parker Guiller. #28 of the very short limited edition of 50 (not the simultaneous edition of 1,000 copies) with color wood block prints, uncut etruria paper, and numbering-with-signature by Nin. Octavo, 185 pp. through the last wood block print, followed by the limitation page and endpapers. Some soiling to covers (cleanable, but I won't do that), light toning to the interior, some foxing opposite the hand-executed color wood block prints. In addition to being one of fifty now-apparently quite-rare copies of the shorter limited run, this copy was signed and inscribed by Hugo on the ffep, "To Leo Katz, with the admiration and appreciation of Ian Hugo", in hand print, not script (see scans). Depending on which Leo Katz that may have been - presumably the one who wrote the foreword to Hugo's "New Eyes On The Art Of Engraving", in which case affording some association status as well. Verso of the ffep has the penned words, "Leo Katz Art Library / August 1953". Presumably also deaccessioned from the Norfolk Museum of Arts and Sciences, those words appearing on the title page. I haven't read The Hunger, but it concerns several adventurous women; and it might - I don't know - stem from Nin's noted diary statement:"Oh, God, I know no joy as great as a moment of rushing into a new love, no ecstasy like that of a new love. I swim in the sky; I float; my body is full of flowers, flowers with fingers giving me acute, acute caresses, sparks, jewels, quivers of joy, dizziness, such dizziness. Music inside of one, drunkenness. Only closing the eyes and remembering, and the hunger, the hunger for more, more, the great hunger, the voracious hunger, and thirst." All in all, about as collectible a Nin piece as one could seek. L17

        The Open Society and its Enemies

      London: George Routledge & Sons, Ltd,, 1945. Volume I The Spell of Plato. [Volume II The High Tide of Prophecy: Hegel, Marx, and the Aftermath]. 2 volumes, octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spines gilt. With the dust jackets. Extremities a little rubbed, a couple of minor bumps and nicks to top edges of boards, short split to head of rear joint of Volume II. An excellent, bright, set in chipped and tanned jackets, Volume I with tape repairs to the verso. First edition, first impression, of the author's influential first book. Popper's classic debut contains within its analysis the seeds of his groundbreaking, if somewhat idiosyncratic, new methodology of inductive reasoning. In The Open Society and Its Enemies he traces, analyses, and refutes theories of historicism, or the idea that history progresses inexorably according to a series of laws. Beginning with Plato, he proceeds to Hegel and Marx, ultimately arguing that historicism is founded on a misunderstanding of scientific principles and that it usually forms the philosophical foundations of totalitarian regimes. Scarce in this condition.

First printing of the "Completely Revised " 1945 edition (and 10th overall), "rewritten and reset, including military and post-war etiquette."

Books inscribed by Post are scarce, and in this, her most famous and enduring work, rare.

Following the war, the 17 year old Peis went to an American sponsored program for 10 months, ending up at a journalism school in Munich under the direction of Erich Kästner. From there he was sent as delegate to the Nuremberg trials as an observer, He was the youngest (19) journalist present and was given special access to witness the executions of von Ribbentrop, Keitel, and others. He went on to publish famous accounts of Hess in Spandau Prison (1951) , of former SS Sturmbannführer Alfred Naujocks who was hiding in Hamburg under a false name, and of love letters between Hitler and Hitler’s lover Maria Reiter. Unlike the supposed Hitler diaries published in 1983, these were deemed to be authentic by experts. He also published other works on the Nazis in WW II. (Wikipedia.

      1940-1945 ca. - Serie di 7 dipinti su carta, tutti bianchi al verso tranne uno che contiene un disegno a matita raffigurante un tornio e la scritta CONPER VIA CESANA 31 TORINO. Le tavole sono dipinte all'acquarello e nei contorni delle immagini il tratto è a china; ogni soggetto è inquadrato entro filetto nero a china. I dipinti, a carattere satirico-caricaturale, raffigurano varie scene delle conseguenze disastrose del fascismo e della guerra sulla popolazione; di forte e cercato contrasto le immagini che rappresentano distruzione, disperazione o paziente rassegnazione delle popolazioni, rispetto alle numerose scritte inneggianti il Duce e il fascismo: espressione dell'aspetto tragi-comico dell'epoca. Di particolare interesse, in quanto colloca i dipinti in ambito torinese, l'immagine in cui compare il Monte dei Cappuccini; curiosa ed interessante la rappresentazione della stazione ferroviaria. Biscaretti fu noto disegnatore tecnico, giornalista e illustratore, fondatore del Museo dell'Automobile di Torino nel 1938, fu capo ufficio stampa dell'Itala tra il 1916 e il 1930. Realizzò vari manifesti pubblicitari, piacevoli e divertenti, distinguendosi nei disegni per case automobilistiche. Fece parte del gruppo che espose alla Prima Esposizione di Caricatura ed Umorismo (1914), dove venne anche premiato. I sette dipinti non recano alcuna firma nè altra indicazione, ma l'attribuzione è certa in quanto la serie proviene dall'ambito famigliare dell'artista, inoltre, il disegno tecnico, retrostante a uno dei dipinti, corrisponde ai canoni dell'artista, ed i confronti rilevati sostengono l'attribuzione. Esemplari in eccellenti condizioni conservative. 0
