      Cambridge: Privately Printed, designed and printed at the University Press, 1945. VERY SCARCE. INSCRIBED BY JOHN F. KENNEDY. First edition, first issue with the Wings insignia printed in dark red on the title-page, very limited printing of probably 250 copies such. Extensively illustrated with black and white photographs, letter facsimiles and a colour reproduction of the Navy Cross. 8vo, in the original burgundy cloth lettered in gilt on the spine and gilt lettered within a gilt ruled border within a black cloth box on the upper cover. xi, 75, with printers colophon on verso of page 75. A very handsome copy of this very scarce work, the cloth is fresh and bright, internally solid with fresh paper, hinges fine and well cared for, with an inscription as noted below providing more of an interesting history then being a distraction. With a rare genuine period signature by the future President. BOLDLY INSCRIBED BY THE FUTURE PRESIDENT. VERY SCARCE, THE RAREST OF ALL JOHN F. KENNEDY RELATED BOOKS AND WITH VERY EARLY PUBLISHED WRITINGS BY THE FUTURE PRESIDENT. Privately printed and limited, the work is known in two issue states. This is the first state with the title page printed in black and red. It is estimated that there were roughly 250 copies printed such. The second state was printed with the title page all in black. While 500 copies in total was the official printing record, it is believed that the actual print count was only 360. AS WE REMEMBER JOE was privately printed by the Kennedy family as a memorial to Joseph P. Kennedy Jr., John F.’s elder brother who was killed in action during World War II. It was to provide a remembrance for family, friends and a few important associates. In content, AS WE REMEMBER JOE is a collection of essays or writings by various persons concerning Joe Kennedy. It was only John Kennedy’s second book (after WHY ENGLAND SLEPT in 1940) and it includes a forward by him and his very touching essay, MY BROTHER JOE. It also includes a short essay by his youngest brother Teddy, who was only 12 years old at the time. Teddy had convinced his brother John and sister Eunice to allow him to submit a story about a sailing race in which he accompanied Joe and where Joe, “seized me by the pant and through me into the cold water.”. With all of the youngest Kennedy’s spelling and punctuation errors intact it is a very sweet and touching addition. With the death of Joe Kennedy in 1944 his brother John F. Kennedy assumed the responsibilities and stature expected of an eldest son in the Kennedy family. This change in family position no doubt affected him for the rest of his life, greatly influencing his career in public service and leading 15 years later to the White House.

        Caresses et Blasphèmes

      Paris: Impr. de J. Haumont (1945). 34pp - Paris: Impr. de J. Haumont (1945). 34pp. Sir Coleridge Arthur Fitzroy Kennard (1885-1948) was educated at Eton and circulated in Oscar Wilde's milieu (his mother financed the Epstein memorial for him at Pere Lachaise). He was also a great friend of Ronald Firbank and Vyvyan Holland and for many years was Firbank's most ardent supporter and literary confidant. One of several publications issued during his lifetime and surely one of the the oddest- it might be argued that the book is in fact a spoof, created by a third party, to denigrate Kennard or bring amusement to others. The poems herein, all in English, are erotic to some extent, a number quite homoerotic: "O! let me calm/ Your fevered blood / Quick! Let me drink,/ Deep in the chasm,/ The growing flood/ Of your vast spasm! One of 380 numbered copies, finely printed on Johannot, cream wrappers lightly worn.Rare. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Fortunately he's a great lover of cats

      1945. Sheet size: 177 × 197 mm. Pen and ink on wove paper. The cat thrower with an overslip. Signed Nicolas Bentley and dated "45". The chairman murmurs sympathetically to another man on the platform, as the prospective Conservative candidate hurls a dead cat back into the riotous crowd. The General Election of 1945 was a surprise defeat for the Conservative party. The cartoons and illustrations of Nicolas Bentley (1907-1978) were part of the warp and weft of English popular culture in the 1950s and 60s. Never savage, though often waspishly accurate and exuding an urbane air of amusement at the foibles of his fellows, Bentley's work was familiar to the public from a wide variety of publications. Between 1952 and 1954 he drew regular cartoons for the weekly Time and Tide, and after that for the daily News Chronicle. Between 1958 and 1962 he drew topical cartoons for the Daily Mail under the title "Watch My Line." He also drew many portraits, in black and white line, of famous people, for various papers, including over sixty for the Sunday Telegraph, which began publication in February 1961.

        Eight Gouache Paintings by Winslade

      - [Still life with wine glass, grapes and cigar] Gouache on paper, a detailed and yet expressive sketch (14cm x 10 cm). [Medieval Parade]. Gouache on board, a highly stylised, colourful procession of lords, ladies, servants and jesters following a cook bearing a boar's head. Pencil sketch on reverse shows a humorous impression of castle entrance (13 x 34 cm).Christmas Scenes: [Shepherd with star] Gouache on board (21.5 x 8.5 cm). Slightly marked. [Three shepherds with star] A particularly arresting composition, a fine example of Winslade's talent in evoking landscape; the shepherds, lit by moonlight, look towards Bethlehem. Gouache on board (11 x 28.5 cm). [Greetings for 1945-6] A dove of peace flying towards a golden sun provides an optimistic subject. Gouache on board, with Winslade's distinctive signature (14 x 11cm). [Madonna and child] Gouache on board, (24 x 14.5 cm).Fairytale romance: [Prince and princess I]. Two figures shown in dramatic black and slate grey on a pink background. Gouache on board (24 x 14 cm). [Prince and princess II]. A precise and complete working sketch for the above. Gouache on paper (20.5 x 11cm) Winslade was an accomplished twentieth century illustrator, known only by his surname. His work was frequently commissioned by major publishing houses for popular children's books. Examples can be seen in the Picken series (e.g. Picken's Great Adventure, OUP 1948); Ruthless Roger by Geoffrey Lowis (Methuen & Co, 1946) and The New Forest series (e.g. New Forest Adventure by Stephen Mogridge, Thomas Nelson & Sons, 1953). He was also a cartoonist and draftsman. During the war he served in the R.A.F., and documented his companions in caricature. The following paintings are typical of Winslade's work during the peak of his powers in the 1940s.

      [Germany; No Publisher],. 1945. Original Wrappers. 4to. [32] pages. 30 cm. First edition. In German. “German Concentration camps and camp inmates: what the American and British armies encountered, April 1945.” Immediate post-war publication containing dozens of photographs from Dachau and Buchenwald upon liberation. Includes the famous and controversial photo of Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel in Buchenwald (first published in the New York Times on May 6, 1945 with the caption “Crowded Bunks in the Prison Camp at Buchenwald” and taken inside Block 56 by Private H. Miller of the Civil Affairs Branch of the U. S. Army Signal Corps on April 16, 1945.) . Also presents photographs of victims of the gas chambers and atrocities, surviving inmates, including an interned American soldier, German civilians and SS performing the task of handling the bodies of those left in mass graves, general Eisenhower and Patton observing a camp inmate describe the types of tortures undergone, etc. Appears to be a parallel edition to to the slightly more common but similar 28 page work, “KZ – Bildbericht aus fünf Konzentrationslagern, ” which has 19 copies listed on OCLC/Worldcat (this work is held by only 13 libraries) . The more common “KZ…, ” which is a kind of sibling title to this, also from 1945, shows no photos from Dachau but rather depicts Buchenwald, Belsen, Gardelegen, Nordhausen and Ohrdurf. The aim of publishing these photobooks was to show the German population the horror of the death camps in Germany; because it was hardly a book people wanted to keep around, few copies remain today. The photos in these booklets played an important role as evidence in the Nuremberg Trials and became the iconic images of the Holocaust to Millions around the globe. Probably the first publication of war crimes photos in postwar Germany. ( For more info, see: Cornelia Brink, “Ikonen der Vernichtung. Öffentlicher Gebrauch von Fotografien aus nationalsocialistischen Konzentrationslagern nach 1945.” Berlin, 1998. Akademia Verlag. ) Subjects: Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945) - Pictorial works. World War, 1939-1945 - Atrocities. Concentration camps - Germany. Buchenwald (Concentration camp) Dachau (Concentration camp) . OCLC lists 13 copies worldwide. Understandably, the US Holocaust Memorial Museum keeps their copy in their Rare Book Room. Small institutional sticker in corner of cover, spine rebacked, Light wear, otherwise Very Good Condition.

        Fernand Léger, la forme humaine dans l'espace [inscribed by Fernand Léger to architect Paul Nelson]

      Montréal: Les Editions de l'arbre, 1945. Livre. Bon. broché. Dédicacé par l'auteur. Edition originale. Grand In-8. Montréal, Les Editions de l'arbre, 1945. 24,5 x 19 cm, grand in-8, 96 (3) pp. - planches hors texte en noir in-fine, broché, couverture illustrée. Edition originale enrichie d'un amical ENVOI autographe signé de Fernand Léger à l'architecte Paul Nelson et à son épouse Francine (née Francine Lecoeur). D'origine américaine, Paul Nelson (1895-1979), élève d'Auguste Perret, fut, de longue date, un ami proche de Fernand Léger. Plusieurs projets lièrent les deux hommes, notamment l'hôpital mémorial France-Etats-Unis de Saint-Lô (1946-1956), conçu par Paul Nelson en étroite collaboration avec Fernand Léger, lequel réalisa une mosaïque pour le péristyle à l'entrée de l'hôpital, en décora les murs extérieurs et choisit les couleurs des chambres et des couloirs. Paul Nelson fut également pressenti pour la construction du musée Fernand Léger à Biot, mais son projet ne fut finalement par retenu. C'est lui, en revanche, qui construisit la maison de Nadia Léger à Gif-sur-Yvette. Le long article de Léger publié dans ce volume ("A propos du corps humain considéré comme un objet") se clôt d'ailleurs sur des questions architecturales : "Il apparaît à certains indices sociaux et artistiques qu'une renaissance de l'art mural est à l'horizon. L'art monumental peut et doit utiliser, en l'amplifiant, cette conception nouvelle. Les jeunes architectes qui vont reconstruire l'Europe détruite devraient regarder de ce côté. Cet art doit se placer dans de grandes architectures. Il est statique par son expression même, il respecte le mur à côté d'une conception dynamique qui, elle, détruit le mur. Il sera la mesure et l'équilibre." Quelques mois seulement après la parution de ce livre Fernand Léger et Paul Nelson, partis tous deux aux Etats-Unis pendant la guerre, revinrent en France où ils se lancèrent ensemble dans le projet de l'hôpital de Saint-Lô, considéré comme le chef-d'oeuvre de Paul Nelson. Très belle association. Couverture défraîchie..
