        CALIFORNIA (CARTE/MAP).

      Jo Mora Publications, Monterey, CA 1945 - Color pictographic map. Image size 24 3/8" x 18 1/4". This was the second and smaller California map Jo Mora drew as well as his last map. The Del Monte Canning Co. commissioned the map for promotional give-aways. As a means to save money, they used somewhat thin paper for the first run and some of the colors (blues and green) did not take as strongly as others. Within a short period of time, they switched to a heavier paper resulting in the colors keeping their strength and brightness. This map is on the heavier paper with the darker greens and blues. As with all Jo Mora cartes, it is packed with historical information and details, creatively and colorfully illustrated. He added details to this version, such as the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges that were not around in 1927 for his first, larger map. (Grandeau & Shorts Cartes 11; Gilmore M17) Fine condition; colors are crisp and bright.

        Animal Farm

      Secker & Warburg; London - A fine, fresh and complete copy of the scarce and fragile (wartime economy standards) first edition of this key work of English literature and satire by George Orwell. The copy of the book is one of the small-run first impression of 4500 copies, dated as May 1945, but actually issued in the August. This controversial landmark fable of twentieth century fiction launched world-wide recognition and gained a genuinely influential reputation, for the first time, for its now celebrated author. In original green weave cloth boards, totally unfaded, with sharp titles to spine bright in white lettering; tight and square, and wih all corners unrubbed and unbumped. Unusually for this book, the extremes of the green cloth spine are not at all faded or stained. There are no signs of wear externally or internally, except for a very short 5cm of unobtrusive paper separation at the lower webbing between the rear endpaper and the pastedown. There are no ownership inscriptions, foxing or spotting, with just some very light flecking to the front pastedown. The paper of the text throughout the book is very clean and unmarked, with no signs of handling. The dustwrapper (notoriously vulnerable) is a very attractive example, that has had the benefit of some small-scale, well-judged and expert prior restorative work to the extremes of spine and corners, skilfully restoring slight loss of paper at tips of spine and at folds, discernible only upon illuminated inspection of verso of wrapper. It is the true first impression - with its Spotlight alternative printing in red on the obverse, and 'An Early List for 1945' on the back panel. It presents in fine condition, with strong tones of grey and green evident, completely without any tears or fading to colours; there are also now no signs of edgewear extant or rubbing at any of the folds, no fraying or chipping at all, and just the lightest suggestion of faint creasing at edges of the head and foot of the front panel above and below the titles. The wrapper is not price-clipped, the inflaps are very clean indeed, and the white back panel has very minimal rubbing, with only the faintest shadow of age-toning towards the spine. A truly beautiful copy of a key and significant work of 20C fiction - rarely offered in this fine condition for which no apologies need to be made. Please look closely at the attached photographs and do request any others, or further descriptive details, that would be of interest to you. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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 .

        Typed Letter, Signed, With A Unit Shoulder Patch

      On Headquarters Army Ground Forces stationery, Stilwell replies to a young correspondent on 30 January, 1945, â??I had a note from your father the other day, and am sending you a picture and a shoulder patch...the insignia is the old shoulder patch worn by members of the China-Burma-India Theater. The twelve-pointed star on the left represents the Chinese Kuomintang while the one on the right is the Star of India. The red and white shield is for the good old U.S.A.â? The 9 1/2 x 7 1/2â? photograph depicts Stilwell leaning on sandbags in camp, probably on campaign in Asia, and he has signed it â??Joseph W. Stilwell, Gen., U.S.A.â? Small pieces of mounting tape on the verso; excellent condition.

        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.

        Battle of Angels: A Play

      Murray, Utah: Pharos, Spring 1945. Murray, Utah: Pharos, Spring 1945 First edition, first printing. Signed and dated by Williams in blue ink on the half-title page: "Tennessee Williams / 1976". Publisher's light gray paper wrappers, lettered in red. Very good, with some wear and minor tearing to the extremities, light toning to the spine and wrapper edges, some light creasing to the first few pages, else fine. A clean and attractive copy, signed by the author. Housed in a custom slipcase with chemise. Battle of Angels is Tennessee Williams' first published full-length, published in the first issue of the literary magazine Pharos (Nos. 1 & 2). Written early in the author's career before he had fully developed his understanding of theater, Battle of Angels was a somewhat unsuccessful play. Due in equal parts to controversial subject matter and a subpar production by the Theater Guild in Boston, it was closed shortly after its opening night, which Williams describes as "as black as any I'd experienced." With Boston censorship laws already putting the provocative play into question, the poor performance of the unprepared actors sealed the play's fate. Regardless, Williams launched his career in the theater world by drawing attention with Battle of Angels and went on to produce his most popular plays over the next two decades. Still, the fate of Battle of Angels never sat well with Williams, who vowed in his prologue, "Some day it will be done again. For that occasion I will probably prepare still another version, omitting the present prologue and epilogue. They were a defensive gesture which I wouldn't have made if it were not for the appalling memory of Boston. But I have never written a play that I thought was complete and I don't think I ever will. There is too much to say and not enough time to say it." Williams finally completed Battle of Angels in 1958 with the publication of his revision Orpheus Descending, which he claims he rewrote not "because I have run out of ideas or material for completely new work" but "because I honestly believe that it is finally finished.". Signed by Author. 1st Edition. Soft Cover. Very Good.

        Original Watercolor Studies for 'A Little Fur Family'

      n.p., Ca. 1945(?) n.p.: n.p., Ca. 1945(?). Fine. Two preliminary paintings for 'Little Fur Family' which was first published in 1946. On paper. Measures approx. 7 by 8½ inches, and each one has additional margin on one side, each with William's signature. While these are separate studies, they seem to be intended as a double spread or a cover as they flow together beautifully. The left hand image is a forest scene with waterfall, and the right image shows the Fur Family with the Little Fur Child playing with his red ball. The images are matted together to form a continuous picture in a mat 16 by 20 inches. Although not used in the first edition of the Little Fur Family, a similar scene was used in the later printings as the cover, after the fur had been discontinued. Images are fine and bright with strong signatures. Accompanied by a copy of a later edition showing the final artwork.
