        Piraterias y Ataques Navales contra las Isla Canarias.

      Madrid. Instituto Jeronimo Zurita.(1945).. 3 vols. in 5. 28 x 20 cm. Original Blue Cloth with gilt back. Slightly blotchy.. En la presente obra se aborda el estudio de uno de los capitulos de la Historia Universal mas llenos de dramaticas emociones, y, no obstante, de los menos estudiados y conocidos. La pirateria nace en los albores de la Humandidad, pues sus origenes se confunden con los de la navegacion y el comercio. La pirateria es una de las mas antiquas actividades humanas. Las primeras referencias acerca de ella coinciden con los mas remotos testimonios relativos a los viajes y al comercio. La conocieron los pueblos del oriente mediterraneo, cuna de las primeras civilizaciones; se difundio bajo el imperio romano; adquirio nuevos brios en la Edad Media con los normandos y los arabes, y llego a la cima de su prosperidad en los albores de Edad Moderna. Los descubrimientos geograficos, las nuevas tierras del oro y las especias, la sed de aventuras y la expansion colonizadora, fueron otros tantos moviles que hicieron del siglo XVI el verdadero Siglo de Oro de corsarios y pirates.; - With numerous Illustr. and some folded Maps. - Paper bronzy, four volumes cover hinge inside broken, a few pages relaxed, Binding tight, otherwise in clean condition. Spanish Language.

        7 eigenh. Schriftstücke (davon 6) mit U., darunter der 5seitige Bericht "über meine Tätigkeit in Mauthausen".

      Wien, 1945-1953.. Zusammen 11½ SS. auf 11 Bll. 4to. Beiliegend: Friedrich von Gagern: Der Retter von Mauthausen. Wien, Agathonverlag, 1948. Mit am vorderen Spiegel montierter und von Haefliger signierter Portraitphotographie. Titel, SS. 5-58, (2) SS. OBr. Gr.-8vo.. Louis Haefliger, Mitarbeiter der Bank Leu in Zürich, kam im April 1945 als freiwilliger Delegierter des Internationalen Roten Kreuz für einen Lebensmitteltransport ins Konzentrationslager Mauthausen. Als er von SS-Obersturmführer Guido Reimer, dem Leiter der Spionage- und Sabotage-Abwehr im Lager, erfuhr, daß Himmler beabsichtige, die Häftlinge der Lager Mauthausen sowie Gusen I und II in den Stollensystemen in St. Georgen und Gusen einzusperren und durch Sprengung der Stollen die Insassen zu ermorden, gelang es ihm eine in der Nähe stationierte Division der US-Armee zu veranlassen, das Lager zu befreien und die Sprengladungen in St. Georgen und Gusen zu deaktivieren. Haefligers Tun, das 40.000 bis 60.000 Menschen das Leben rettete, gilt als die bedeutendste Tat eines einzelnen Menschen in der Geschichte des Roten Kreuzes. Gleichwohl wurde er jedoch für sein eigenmächtiges Handeln vom IKRK verurteilt, da er mit seinen Handlungen nach Auffassung des Komitees gegen das Prinzip der Neutralität verstoßen hatte. Seinen Arbeitsplatz verlor er überdies und fand in der Schweiz auch keine Anstellung mehr, so daß er sich 1946 in Wien niederließ, wo er eine Handelsagentur betrieb und in zweiter Ehe Gabriele Groins, geb. Maxymovitz, heiratete. 1950 wurde er vom damaligen Justizminister Otto Tschadek für den Friedensnobelpreis nominiert; 1955 wurde er österreichischer Staatsbürger und arbeitete von 1958 bis 1973 als Angestellter der National Registrierkassen AG. In Israel wie auch in Österreich erhielt er für sein Verdienst zahlreiche Auszeichnungen, so etwa 1977 das Ehrenzeichen für Verdienste um die Befreiung Österreichs; 1988 wurde er erneut für den Friedensnobelpreis nominiert und zwei Jahre später durch den damaligen IKRK-Präsidenten Cornelio Sommaruga rehabilitiert. - Im einzelnen umfaßt die vorliegende Sammlung zwei eh. von Haefliger unterfertigte Abschriften von Rapporten an das IRK "betr.: 200 jüdische, elternlose Kinder im Camp Hörsching, bei Linz, Oberösterreich" (dat. 26. VI. 1945) und "betr.: Judenlager in Hörsching und Ebensee" (dat. 27. VI. 1945), einen Brief über den Verkauf einer Liegenschaft in Rodaun, den Haefliger wohl vermittelte (dat. 3. XII. 1953), einen Brief über die Freigabe der Textildruckerei Josef Kessel "aus dem Komplex deutschen Eigentums" (dat. 1. XI. 1953), einen zweiseitigen Brief an Dr. Th. Feder vom American Joint Distribution Committee über eine Wiedergutmachung des ihm durch den Verlust seiner Anstellung und seiner Habseligkeiten entstandenen Schadens (dat. 14. X. 1953) sowie einen sehr ausführlichen, knapp fünfseitigen Bericht "über meine Tätigkeit in Mauthausen" (dat. 27. X. 1953).

"He was brilliant and prolific, breathing life and passion into such memorable characters as Blanche DuBois and Stanley Kowalski in his critically acclaimed A Streetcar Named Desire. And like them, he was troubled and self-destructive, an abuser of alcohol and drugs. He was awarded four Drama Critic Circle Awards, two Pulitzer Prizes and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He was derided by critics and blacklisted by Roman Catholic Cardinal Spellman, who condemned one of his scripts as 'revolting, deplorable, morally repellent, offensive to Christian standards of decency.' He was Tennessee Williams, one of the greatest playwrights in American history" (PBS).

Vortragsnotizen von Doris Dana bei genanntem Vortrag. 8 SS. 4to und 8vo.. Interessante Thomas-Mann-Korrespondenz- und -Ephemera-Sammlung, zusammengestellt von Doris Dana, der langjährigen Lebensgefährtin der Nobelpreisträgerin, Dichterin, Pädagogin, Feministin und chilenischen Diplomatin Gabriela Mistral (eigtl. Lucila de Maria del Perpetuo Socorro Godoy Alcayaga, 1889-1957), deren Lyrik Dana übersetzte und herausgab. Die vorliegende Sammlung dokumentiert die Freundschaft, die Dana in den späten 1940er Jahren mit der Familie Mann unterhielt, und betrifft auch häufig ihre Freundschaft zu Gabriela Mistral. Im ersten Korrespondenzdokument, am 27. August 1946 abgefaßt, dankt Thomas Mann "Miss Dana" für ihren "touching letter of August 15th" (hier nicht vorliegend) sowie für die "hours we spent with you. - Particularly, I want to express to you, though belatedly, my appreciation of the excellent English translation of the article by Gabriela Mistral. I was deeply moved and surprised about the truly generous warm-heartedness with which this woman comments on my work and existence. Strangely enough: nowadays it is not seldom that people write about me in this tone and style to which I formerly was hardly used. It proves that one only has to persist long enough and people will begin to realize what one means to them." In einem zwei Tage später abgefaßten eigenh. Brief fügt Katia Mann ihren Dank für ein Cesar-Franck-Plattenalbum hinzu, wie auch für "the lovely little Mexican box which arrived two days ago" (Quittung in der Ephemera-Slg. enthalten). Wenige Tage später (Br. v. 16. X. 1946) schickt Dana den Manns ein Carol-Bruce-Album mit Mahlers "Liedern eines fahrenden Gesellen" und erwähnt die Pläne des War Department, ihre Kurzgeschichte "My Soul To Take" in der "Neuen Auslese" abzudrucken, "a magazine published in Germany and circulated through all four zones of Germany, and Austria, as part of the reeducation program for the occupied areas [...] It is an immense satisfaction and privilege for me to be given a hearing in this way [...] - particularly since it stresses for me the functional aspect of writing [...] Thank you particularly for your appreciation of the article by Gabriela Mistral. To translate such an article was a privilege for me [...], and also a vicarious way of expressing my own feeling on your existence, your work and the things you represent." Mann antwortet am 1. XI.: "It is amazing that Mahler's musical personality is so completely expressed in these early compositions. The reproduction is excellent, and even the German pronunciation of the singer leaves hardly anything to desire [...] I am working hard on my novel [d. i. Doktor Faustus] which, if I stay well, I hope to finish in the first months of the coming year [...]". Nach einer Pause, während derer Dana in Kontakt mit Monika Mann steht, nimmt sie den Briefverkehr im März 1948 wieder auf: "I have just received a very warm letter concerning you from Gabriela Mistral [...] As you know, her tribute to you, which I had the honor of translating, appeared in 'The Stature of Thomas Mann.' The letter which she now writes to me expresses a profound appreciation of you + of your work [...] She tells me that she will be in Los Angeles for a short time at the end of March + asks me if it might be possible for you to see her briefly. Believe me, if it is possible for you to see her I know that it will be a mutually happy meeting - for she is a poet of great genius + strength + magnitude. Monika tells me that you have broken your shoulder recently + suffered badly with it for awhile [...] I am looking forward eagerly to the appearance of the English translation of Dr. Faust. The enthusiastic responses I have heard from my friends who know German, is enough to make me most envious of their knowledge of your language. They say it is by far the best thing you have done. Oh - why have I not learned German! I am impatient to read this new work of yours [...]". Mann antwortet am 21. März, daß er Gabriela Mistral unmittelbar geschrieben habe, "asking her to give me a wring [!], when she comes to Los Angeles. I am looking forward to having her as a guest in our home [...] My arm is doing allright, and I think, in a few weeks I may forget about it [...]". - Die Korrespondenz mit Monika umfaßt drei Briefe; im ersten bittet sie Dana "to have dinner with me one convenient evening soon - and I wanted to ask you whether it would be possible for you to arrange for me a one week's stay at your country place (from about 15.-23.) [...] It's very important for me!" Charakteristischerweise gibt sie den Absender noch als "Monika Lanyi Mann" an - 1940, im Jahr nach ihrer Heirat, war ihr Ehemann, der Kunsthistoriker Jenö Lanyi, ertrunken, als ein deutsches U-Boot das Schiff, auf dem das Paar nach Kanada emigrierte, versenkte (Monika war unter den wenigen Überlebenden). Auch schreibt sie Danas Namen falsch "Denah". - Enthält auch vier unveröffentlichte Typoskripte von Monika Mann: "Betsy" (5½ SS.), "Circus" (7½ SS.), "Pet Tells his Story" (9½ SS.) und "Racine on the Chief" (5 SS.). Sie dürften im Jahre 1947/48 entstanden sein, als sich Monika erstmals ernsthaft um eine Existenz als Berufsschriftstellerin bemühte - sehr zum Unwillen ihrer Eltern, die nicht an ihr Talent glaubten und fürchteten, die wenig geliebte Tochter könnte Familiendetails an die Öffentlichkeit zerren. - Die Sammlung wird ergänzt von mehreren Ephemera um Thomas-Mann-Vorträge, bei denen Dana (teils stenographische) Mitschriften anfertigte (unter Bezugnahme auf Nietzsche, Hitler, Roosevelt, die "nobleness of life", welche die Kultur ausmacht, und deren Beziehung zu Kunst und Instinkt etc.).

Near fine in boards in a beautiful example of the fragile jacket, very lightly soiled, with just a tiny bit of loss at the spine ends; housed in the exceptionally rare slipcase, mostly complete if heavily worn, with just a fragment remaining from the paper label.

Although Brodovitch is best known as a graphic designer and art director, Ballet remains one of the most influential of the great 20th century photobooks, presaging every trend in cinematic book editing, and completely obliterating the notion that the image had to be representational of the subject. Brodovitch would have taken great comfort in Daido Moriyama's Provoke office. (Parr / Badger, v1, 240-241; Roth 110-111; Open Book 136-137; Auer 314).

        An Original Photograph Album of the Gold Coast Colony (Ghana) Taken by a Young officer of the Royal West African Frontier Force (RWAFF), Gold Coast Regiment

      Kingdom of Ashanti, British Gold Coast (Ghana): , 1945. Kingdom of Ashanti, British Gold Coast (Ghana), 1945. An original album of photographs from the Gold Coast Colony, with special attention paid to indigenous ways of life, as seen by a young officer of the Royal West African Frontier Force (RWAFF), Gold Coast Regiment. Oblong 8vo. Album, diamond patterned cloth boards with illustrated paper label, contains 147 black and white photographs with white borders, mounted double sided onto 19 blue cardstock leaves and captioned in manuscript. Most photographs measure approximately 3.25 x 3.5 inches; seven measure 5.25 x 3.25 inches, and the frontis photograph measures 9.5 x 4.5 inches. Boards age-toning and frayed to extremities, otherwise in Very Good Condition with crisp images. Fascinating album of photographs taken by a cheeky young chap serving in the British Army, at the dawn of the decolonization of Africa, his regiment being stationed in the colonies then known as the Kingdom of Ashanti and the Gold Coast Region. The album begins with a large sepia photograph of the RMS Aquatania, then commissioned as a troop transport ship in the Atlantic, on which the men were brought to Accra, the capital of the British Gold Coast, centered around its port. Indigenous life and tribal custom is captured in numerous photographs, outdoor markets replete with fruit merchants and brimming weaved baskets, round huts with cylindrical peaked roofs called giddas, quaint mud and thatched-roof dwellings, a bush compound, groups of fishermen and their boats, a striking image of innumerable fishing canoes with their rims adorned with painted detail and flanking the cliffs near the 17th century Dutch Fort Christianborg or Osu Castle in Accra. Women, being reputed for the burden of labour in Africa, are indeed seen in many such roles in this volume. Some are selling the fish in the streets of Accra, others selling produce or cotton; several are carrying large sacs and baskets on their heads including a pottery merchant balancing two enormous clay vases; others are washing, nurturing children, braiding hair, and manually pounding cassava. A long elevated platform of cocoa beans drying in the sun is unsupervised but for a child sitting amidst the beans, the crop soon to be sorted by the women. (Cocoa was introduced to Ghana in 1878, Koforidu being one of the country’s oldest cocoa-producing centres. Founded in 1875 by Akan migrants from Asanteman, it is now the capital of Eastern Region in south Ghana. With the completion of the Kumasi railway in 1923 Koforidua also become an important road and rail junction.) Images portraying a vibrant community include those of a tribal drummer in traditional costume with his drum wrapped in leopard hide, the use of immense parasols, a snake charmer, and a street festival. Many photographs of modest villagers are taken, and in great contrast, photographed with an entourage of dignitaries is the Chief of Kibi, South Ghana, Nana Ofori Atta II, the Okyenhene or King of the wealthy Akyem Abuakwa kingdom, who reigned from September 1943 to 13 June 1958, and at the time claimed rule over a population of 160,000. Leisure activities for the British men including swimming in te ocean, sailing on a lagoon near Labadi Beach, a canoe tour of a lagoon in Korle Gonno in the Greater Accra Region, visiting markets, and a successful crocodile hunt. Camps were erected near the city of Accra, and also near a village of Zongo people situated in the Korle-Bu district of the Ashanti region of South Ghana, known today for the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital which was founded in 1923 as the Gold Coast Hospital. The men are shown building a railroad, and travelled to numerous places by road and by rail, sometimes on a Pullman sleeping car. The young men in these photographs would follow in the footsteps of British troops led by Sir Francis Scott in the late 1890s, who marched to Kumasi, from where the king was exiled to the Elmina Castle, then to Sierra Leone, and later to Seychels. Locations identified in captions are as follows: Accra, Zuarongo, Koforidua, Elmina, Takoradi, Kumasi, Korle Bu, the palm tree lined road to Achimota, Navrongo (8 miles south of French Equatorial Africa), and also a view of Freetown Harbour in Sierra Leone as the vessels cruises by..

He contrived to have himself put at the job of painting the police-yard fence, and from this vantage point, picked up information that helped him fit the pieces of the puzzle together.

Printed card wrappers, stapled. Stenciled. A few insignificant specks on front wrapper, names of two previous owners on the title. A fine copy. Coleman, The ''Smyth Report'': a Descriptive Check List No. 3. Printing and the Mind of Man 422: "the remarkably full and candid account of the development work [...], which culminated in the production of the first atomic bomb." A copy of the lithoprint version, preceding the first printed edition and intended for press release distribution immediately after the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August of 1945. The lithoprint version was preceded by a mimeograph version (Coleman No. 1), sent out to project leaders and a few others belonging to the Manhattan District work; all copies of this version were probably destroyed. At least one copy is known of another stenciled version with text in purple (Coleman No. 2, ''Ditto version''). It is not yet determined if the Ditto version precedes the Lithoprint version or not, and it might be just a proof copy. The last chapter of the offered copy has the last chapter named ''Appendix 6'', pp. 247-254, with an extra title leaf in Swedish; these are taken from the book edition and are usually not included in the Lithoprint version. Parts of this edition were apparently published with different foreign language covers, since also a German edition is known. Though many crucial details of the production process were omitted in the report, the publication of the Smythe Report was controversial. Smythe sums up the motivation of the publication in his preface: ''The ultimate responsibility for our nation's policy rests on its citizens and they can discharge such responsibilities wisely only if they are informed''. An allusion to a specific phenomena of nuclear physics was omitted in the printed version, but is present in this edition. This textual change attracted the attention of Soviet scientists and became a clue for them in their ambition to develop an atomic bomb of their own

Arion Press. large 8vo. three-piece cloth printed on front and back, gilt stamped spine, slipcase. 204 pages. One of 300 numbered copies, signed by the artist. A special edition of George Orwell's 1945 allegory, with illustrations by Jonathan Hammer (b. 1960), who worked for a time as a bookbinder at the Arion Press. As the Stanford University historian Peter Stansky writes in his introduction, "Orwell is a writer of extraordinary power and this may be his greatest masterpiece, a perfect text. As a fable about human nature it transcends the political era in which it was written. It is in so many ways a despairing book, but it has such compassion and empathy. In the end, there is still a glimmer that possibly some day we might create a better and more equal society." Composed in Monotype Times New Roman and letterpress printed on ivory Zerkall mouldmade paper. The 24 relief prints are letterpress printed from polymer plates made from films scratched by the artist with an etching needle for the black images, and with photo-polymer plates made from overlay drawings in pencil for the red tints.
