First printing of the "Completely Revised " 1945 edition (and 10th overall), "rewritten and reset, including military and post-war etiquette." In the words of Booktryst's Stephen Gertz, "one of the most important and influential non-fiction American books of the first half of the twentieth century." ETIQUETTE, now in its eighteenth edition, has never been out of print. And beginning with this edition, Post arguably attained her greatest reach and fame, as millions of returning GI's and their wives sought to attain "the Best Society" Post championed. Books inscribed by Post are scarce, and in this, her most famous and enduring work, rare.

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.

        SERIE DI 7 DIPINTI ALL'ACQUARELLO DI ARGOMENTO SATIRICO SUL FASCISMO E IL PERIODO BELLICO

      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

        Extermination of Polish Jews Album of Pictures [Zaglada Zydostwa Polskiego Album Zdjec]

      Lodz: Centralna Zydowska Komisja Historyczna W. Polsce, 1945. Lodz: Centralna Zydowska Komisja Historyczna W. Polsce, 1945. First edition. Paperback. Very Good. Lodz. 1945. The earliest photographic documentation in book form of the extermination of the Jews in Europe.& & The painfully graphic images contained in this simple book were assembled in admirable haste at the immediate end of World War II. The Central Jewish Historical Committee in Poland was compelled to preserve a record of what transpired during the German-Hitlerian occupation of that country. Dr. Filip Friedman, Director of the committee, explains in his introduction that this book was only the first of a projected series with this goal in mind. Photography, with its sense of physical immediacy, understandably presents a powerful mode in which to preserve the truth of the Holocaust. It might be surprising to learn that most of these photographs were taken by German amateurs as “keepsake” pictures; others, in secret, by Jews or Polish gentiles. All of them confirm the systematic brutality visited on one group of humans by another.& The introduction and brief explanations below each image are translated into French, Hebrew, English, Polish and Russian. The photographs themselves are arranged in a logical sequence--- numbered images 1-19 illustrated the progressive persecution of Jews during the first period of the occupation… anti-Jewish propaganda posters, beards cut, clothes torn, “shame badges” affixed, all lenient forms of ill treatment. Numbers 30-97 expose the suffering of Jews during the walled Ghetto period. Numbers 213-235 explode any remaining incredulity with the depictions of executions, mass murders, starvation in the camps, the loading and burying of corpses and the ultimate profanity---the human soap factory. The final images, in quiet rebuttal, illustrate the oppositionary movement and the fighting partisans among the Jews. An extremely rare and important visual record of the holocaust and a world that is no more.&

        Income from Independent Professional Practice

      New York: National Bureau of Economic Research, 1945. New York: National Bureau of Economic Research. Very Good- with no dust jacket. 1945. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. Light tone, date on rear pastedown, otherwise light wear. "Submitted by Milton Friedman in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy, Faculty of Political Science, Columbia University" on sticker at bottom of title page; "Milton Friedman Vita" sheet tipped in at rear. Solid hardcover. ; A description of the income structure of the professions of medicine, dentistry, law, accounting, and engineering during 1929-36. "[W] Allen [Wallis] went first to New Deal Washington. Largely through his efforts, I followed in the summer of 1935, working at the National Resources Committee on the design of a large consumer budget study then under way. This was one of the two principal components of my later Theory of the Consumption Function. The other came from my next job - at the National Bureau of Economic Research, where I went in the fall of 1937 to assist Simon Kuznets in his studies of professional income. The end result was our jointly published Incomes from Independent Professional Practice, which also served as my doctoral dissertation at Columbia. That book was finished by 1940, but its publication was delayed until after the war because of controversy among some Bureau directors about our conclusion that the medical profession's monopoly powers had raised substantially the incomes of physicians relative to that of dentists. More important, scientifically, that book introduced the concepts of permanent and transitory income." - Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize Autobiography. Quite uncommon first edition of this early book co-authored by two future Nobel Prize economists. ; Publications of the National Bureau of Economic Research; Vol. 45; xxxiii, 599 pages .

        The Dwarf [Dvärgen] [Signed / Ingraverat]

      New York: L. B. Fischer, 1945. New York: L. B. Fischer, 1945. First American edition. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. A Very Good copy of the first American edition (and the first edition in English translation), first printing (book modestly askew, some pushing to the spine ends, and slight rubbing to the spine ends and board corners), in an about Very Good age-toned dust jacket (some wear to the spine extremities, chips to the spine tail where it meets the front and rear panels, small chips to the spine fold corners where they meet the front and rear panels, and short tears to the rear panel's top edge, short tears to the spine panel extremities, some staining to the left spine edge and adjoining right edge of the rear panel), SIGNED BY PAR LAGERKVIST on the title page. Translated from the Swedish by Alexandra Dick, the novel is narrated by a misanthropic Dwarf, 26 inches tall, who believes in an unforgiving God and who himself embodies Evil, serving the ruler of a Renaissance era Italian City-State. In this, one of Lagerkvist's best-known works, the Dwarf and the other characters, illustrate the major evils of the human race. Elected in 1940 as one of the 18 "Immortals" of the Swedish Academy, Lagerkvist was as highly influential writer from his twenties into his seventies, and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1951 "for the artistic vigour and true independence of mind with which he endeavors in his poetry to find answers to the eternal questions confronting mankind". Signed copies of Lagerkvist's works are quite scarce and signed copies in English translation are especially so. One of Lagerkvist's major works, this title is especially scarce when signed in any language. A Very Good copy, SIGNED BY PAR LAGERKVIST. SCARCE.
