        The Open Society and Its Enemies. Volume I: The Spell of Plato. Volume II: The High Tide of Prophecy: Hegel, Marx, and the Aftermath.

      London: George Routledge & Sons, Ltd, 1945 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original black cloth, spines lettered in gilt. Extremities lightly rubbed, spines rolled, ends and corners bumped, small knock to fore edges of volume I, contents toned, overall a very good set. Ownership inscription of artist Augustus John (1878–1961) to front free endpaper of volume I and one marginal annotation to page 99 of the same. First edition, first impression, of the author's influential first book. "The Open Society was, deservedly, a great success; and so was its author. It appeared in November 1945, and Popper arrived the following January [from New Zealand] to find himself a rising star in the British philosophical firmament. Gilbert Ryle wrote an enthusiastic review of The Open Society and its Enemies for Mind. Bertrand Russell wrote an enthusiastic recommendation on its behalf to his own American publisher, and spoke warmly of Popper's demolition of Plato when he delivered his well-known lecture 'Philosophy and politics' in October 1946 The 'open society' had obvious affinities with what John Stuart Mill had argued for in On Liberty: a society in which argument was the norm, where moral, political, scientific, and religious doctrines were constantly questioned and revised. What was unusual about The Open Society and its Enemies was not only its sustained assault on the enemies of the open society but its concentration on the way in which their philosophical errors became politically dangerous. Volume 1 depicted Plato as both a proto-communist and a proto-fascist, and emphasized the ways in which his theory of knowledge with its emphasis on the intuitive grasp of essences licensed intellectual authoritarianism, and therefore political authoritarianism. Volume 2, subtitled 'The high tide of prophecy', savaged Hegel and Marx for claiming to have arrived at the definitive truth about the future of humanity and the political implications of that truth" (ODNB).

        Captain Slaughterboard Drops Anchor (SIGNED)

      Eyre & Spottiswoode, London 1945 - Peake's first book -- the 1945 is actually the second edition, with color screens added to the internal pages, as most copies of the 1939 true first were reported "destroyed by enemy action early in the war." Large, slim octavo signed to the blank FFE "Mervyn Peake '47." This copy acquired from the Old Aberdeen Bookshop, Aberdeen, whose proprietor informs us "The signature is genuine according to the lady who sold this book. Given to her mother by the author in Sark, Channel Islands, UK." And indeed, the distinctive signature matches others available Online. None of the usual warping to the boards, here, though there's also no dust jacket. Charming if somewhat odd pirate fantasy. (Actual relationship of the pirate captain and the Yellow Creature remains unclear, and thus possibly non-traditional.) [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Original World War II American P.O.W. Watercolor Drawings

      [Limburg, Germany, 1945. Near Fine. A series of eight pen and ink and watercolor drawings by Charles D. Cilley, an American sergeant with the 52nd Armored Infantry Division, depicting his wartime experience at a German P.O.W. camp after his capture during the Battle of the Bulge. All eight drawings are on paper sheets measuring about 12" x 9.5". Scattered old tape stains on the back edges, near fine.Though not numbered or captioned, the eight drawings chronicle the main events after Cilley's capture in December 1944, beginning with a drawing of an endless column of American GIs snaking its way through a cold winter landscape under a starry night. A second drawing shows prisoners being transported in railroad boxcars (one of which is marked "Deutschland Reichseisenbahn" or "German Railroad"): they are shown taking a break while under guard, high up in a mountainous area on a clear day. Cilley and thousands of other American prisoners were sent to Stalag XIIA, a "notoriously bad" P.O.W. camp located in Diez, a small village on the Lahn river near Limburg, Germany. It was initially set up to serve as a transit camp, where newly captured prisoners were interrogated before being sent on to other better organized P.O.W. camps deeper inside of Germany. However, by the end of the war Stalag XIIA served both as a transit hub and makeshift permanent residence for prisoners captured on both the Eastern and Western Fronts, including many British and Russian soldiers, as well as Indian soldiers captured in North Africa. Cilley remained at Stalag XIIA until it was liberated by troops of the American 9th Armored Division in April 1945.Five drawings depict life at the camp. In mid-December American prisoners from the Battle of the Bulge began to arrive. According to contemporary accounts: "rations per man were reduced to a tenth of a loaf, followed by coffee, then a soup at lunch time, and either a potato soup or three jacket potatoes for supper." Cilley shows the newly arrived American prisoners on various work details, both preparing and carrying large pails of soup, and lined up to receive it. He accurately depicts the main barracks emblazoned with the letters "POW" on its roof, along with a column of prisoners carrying soup, sacks of potatoes, and a few loaves of bread in front of a newly posted sign: "Amerikaner Kuche" (American food). He also depicts prisoners at leisure inside of a barrack furnished with wooden bunks, tables, and a stove; and outside a barracks washing clothes.A final intriguing drawing shows prisoners working on railroad tracks and rail cars that had been bombed. On December 23/24, the allies bombed the Limburg/Dietz rail yard near Stalag XIIA, not knowing that the boxcars on the tracks were filled with allied P.O.W.'s in transit; and the camp itself was also hit when flares were blown off course into the camp. Cilley's drawing depicts the prisoners at work on the tracks alongside damaged boxcars, with the village of Dietz (presumably) in the background. Included with the drawings is a letter of provenance written by Cilley's son, who notes that Cilley had developed severe pneumonia while at the camp and "only survived" thanks to the intervention of the German doctor in charge, who successfully drew the fluid from out of his lungs. Also included is a copy of a 52nd AIB Newsletter from December 1948 that was written entirely by Cilley (20 typed pages) for veterans of the unit.A remarkable set of accomplished drawings, done either while Cilley was still at the camp or very soon after he was liberated in April 1945.

        A rosa do povo (first edition)

      Livraria Jose' Olympio, 1945. In 8 (cm 12,5 x 18,5), pp. 220 + (4). Alcune mancanze riparate ai piatti. Brossura editoriale con alette. Rarissima edizione originale di quella che e' considerata la piu' importante raccolta poetica di uno dei maggiori scrittori brasiliani del Novecento. Si tratta del libro politicamente piu' esplicito di De Andrade, potente sguardo sulla seconda guerra mondiale, sulla divisione ideologica, sulla vita urbana, l'amore e la morte. Lo scrittore osserva tutto questo da quella che era allora la capitale del paese Rio De Janeiro, la prima grande citta' cosmopolita brasiliana, con uno sguardo sulla citta' che da alcuni critici e' stato paragonato a quello di Baudelaire, primo grande cantore dell'esperienza urbana, nei confronti di Parigi. Formalmente il libro si puo' apparentare al modernismo con una sperimentazione del verso che accomuna De Andrade a Walt Whitman. Nei versi si intrecciano la personalita' del poeta, la storia della sua famiglia, la vita quotidiana, la guerra che si presentano con una forza senza precedenti nell'opera dello scrittore brasiliano.
