      - Complete set of cancelled royalty checks made out by editor Donald Allen to 44 authors who appeared in the landmark poetry anthology THE NEW AMERICAN POETRY: 1945-1960, all SIGNED on the verso by the individual authors. In addition to his check, which he endorsed on the wrong end, Kerouac has written "For Sterling Lord Agency to re-process." The check for James Schuyler has been SIGNED by him as well as by his lover, artist Fairfield Porter. Denise Levertov has SIGNED both her maiden and married names. Many like Lew Welch, Philip Whalen, and Brother Antonius have added their addresses or an endorsement. Along with a TYPED NOTE SIGNED by Donald Allen and dated 1998 explaining the contract he signed with Grove Press for the anthology and how he pro-rated the royalties earned by the poets and continued to do so until the book went out of print in 1980. A very scarce collection, one of apparently only two in existence, with a fine collection of autographs of many of the important new poets of the time.

        Ski Trail [Original Colour Woodcut Print on Paper]

      1945, edition of 200-300. () Fine. 10.5 X 7.5 CM (4 X 3 inches) original colour woodcut print on paper. In 1.5 CM (0.6 inch) ribbed brushed gilt wooden frame with only very slight wear. Off-white acid free matting (with embossed simple embossed frame around image) and Tru Vue UV protectant conservation glass. In extremely good condition, with no fading or acid burn. Crisp, clear colours. Frame measures 37.5 X 23.5 CM (14.75 X 9.25 inches). Metal wire hanger across back. To the bottom right below the image is Phillips' signature (in pencil). With Master's Gallery provenance label on back. Boulet MBL240. At least 200-300 prints were produced in 1946 as Phillips' Christmas greeting card. An interesting image showing two skiers amidst the trees. The detail in the clothing and face of the closer skier provides a beautiful contrast to the simple green outlines of the trees behind. The excellent quality of framing and pristine condition makes this print especially desirable. Walter Joseph Phillips (October 25, 1884 – July 5, 1963) was an English-born Canadian painter and woodcutter, acclaimed as one of Canada's most famous printmakers and for popularizing the colour woodcut in the style of the Japanese. His artistic career spanned from the 1900s through the 1940s, during which time his work was exhibited throughout North America and Great Britain. In 1940 he was asked to become a resident artist at the Banff Centre, then known as the Banff School of Fine Arts, where he played an important role in the development of their visual arts program- It's Walter Phillips Gallery, which focuses on contemporary art, is named after him. The Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Alberta holds an extensive collection of Phillips works and a research archive..

        The Postwar Speeches, a full set of jacketed first editions: The Sinews of Peace, Europe Unite, In the Balance, Stemming the Tide, and The Unwritten Alliance

      Here is a superior, jacketed set of all five of Churchill's post-WWII speech volumes.  These volumes span the period from Demobilization in late 1945, when Churchill was Leader of the Opposition, through his second Premiership (1951-1955) into a time when Churchill passes "into a living national memorial" of the time he has lived and the Nation, Empire, and free world he has served. The events encompassed by these years are in many ways no less dramatic than those of the war years - the unraveling of the British Empire, the post-war recovery, the onset of the Cold War, Soviet acquisition of the atomic bomb, development of the hydrogen bomb, and the beginning of the space age (to name a few).  These postwar speech volumes are much more scarce than Churchill’s War Speeches volumes; all five of these books had only a single printing each.  Moreover, collectors should note that the fifth and final volume, The Unwritten Alliance, is the last of Churchill's books published in his lifetime and was issued only in Britain, with no U.S. edition.  All five volumes offered here are near-fine volumes in jackets that range from very good plus to near-fine.  All five cloth bindings are clean and square with virtually no wear.  The contents of all five volumes are uniformly clean and tight.  We find no spotting in the set.  The only previous ownership marks in the set are confined to The Sinews of Peace front pastedown - a pencilled date of "8/48" and a tiny Oxford bookshop sticker.  The page edges show only mild soiling and age-toning.  All five dust jackets are bright, clean, and highly complete with only trivial chipping to a few spine ends.  All five dust jackets are unclipped, still bearing the original front flap prices.  Please note that Stemming the Tide has the more desirable first state dust jacket.  Stemming the Tide has a two inch closed tear and some wrinkling at the bottom of the front face, but no loss associated with this tear, which is unobtrusive beneath the dust jacket protector.  This flaw aside, the five dust jackets show only minor wear at  extremities and a few trivial imperfections in the black background color.  Dust jackets for The Unwritten Alliance were notoriously poorly printed, and consequently are almost always rubbed or streaked, with orange showing through the black background.   This example of The Unwritten Alliance has excellent spine presentation, with two vertical streaks of orange color confined the front face.  We note almost invisible closed tears near the upper front hinges of Europe Unite and The Sinews of Peace, but these two jackets are nonetheless unusually clean and complete examples.  In the Balance is likewise an unusually bright example.  Assembling full, jacketed sets in such condition has become difficult.  The dust jackets are protected in removable, archival quality clear covers.  Bibliographic reference: Cohen A241.1, A246.1, A255.1, A264.1, A273; Woods/ICS A124(a), A128(a), A130(a), A137(a), A142; Langworth pages 184, 296, 301, 309, 338

        The Happy Rock. A book about Henry Miller

      Berkeley, California: printed for Bern Porter by the Packard Press,, 1945. Octavo. Original grey linen-backed boards, beige paper sides and endpapers, black titles and red illustration (by Ferdnand Léger) to front board, multicoloured leaves. Portrait illustration of Miller by Abraham Rattner to title page. Corners rubbed, covers and endpapers faintly marked; a very good copy. First edition; one of 3,000 copies (this unnumbered), of which 750 were bound for distribution during 1945, this from the 1947 issue (dated as such on the binding). This copy is inscribed by Miller himself on the front free endpaper, "From Henry Miller, Big Sur 4/20/50, to Hugo or his friend, for whomever - greetings - Salut! "Le cacodaimon" HM." The specific origin of Miller's persona as cacodaemon, an evil spirit, is untraced, though it fits entirely with the public perception of him as an evil and corrupting literary force, at a time when his Tropic trilogy was still banned in the United States. The printed dedication, fittingly, is "To the Freedom of the Press - should there ever be any", and the book itself collects pieces endorsing Miller by such writers as Lawrence Durrell, William Carlos Williams, Bern Porter (the publisher), Osbert Sitwell, and many more, with some notes by Miller himself, and a useful chronology and bibliography at the rear. The recipient of this copy was Jewish poet Hugo Manning (1913-77), a long-term correspondent of Miller, and also a contributor to this book, in which he writes, "Miller is anomalous, paradoxical... At one moment some will see him as the dead-end prophet, the amoral scavenger of the great twilight. And yet at another moment, they will see within that dead-end its very antithesis: Light. And saint-like wisdom. Many of us went are are still going the way of the Gadarene swine. We need a new piety certainly. Even if it is a rainbow's end, the act of searching for it will help.

        An Important Collection of 19 Photograph Albums of Original Photographs recording life in post World War II Indonesia. Ca. 1946

      19 volumes (5 4/8 x 8 inches), each with ca 20 black and white images interleaved with brief typed descriptions, photograph size (5 4/8 x 7 inches). Original half black cloth, marbled boards, printed paper labels on each front cover (a bit browned). "Very little can as yet be said of the future political developments of this part of the archipelago" (anonymous photographer's note). An important and fascinating collection of photographs of post-war Indonesia apparently prepared by the Dutch government or a Dutch humanitarian organization just following the end of World War II. Between 1945 and 1949 Dutch troops fought local republican factions to regain control of Indonesia after the end of Japanese occupation. Photographs include dramatic and often disturbing images of the devastation caused by the war, particularly the Japanese occupation of Sumatra: "Southern Sumatra was the scene of many tragedies. on the capitulation of the Japanese forces many P.O.W. internment camps were discovered where P.O.W.'s lived on the verge of death." (anonymous photographer). There are photographs recording the official hand-over of power: "Conference between commander of British occuptation forces brigadier Hutchinson, colonel Mollinger, who with Dutch troops was to take over command from the former and Dr. Iza republican resident of Palambang and substitute for Dr. Gani minister of the republican government. the official taking over of command. the landing of Dutch troops" (ibid.) However, the focus of the albums seems to be the recovery of industry and agriculture in the Indonesian islands and the opportunity for economic development. Album titles include: Northern and Western Sumatra; Eastern Sumatra; Southern Sumatra; Bangka & Billiton; Western Borneo; Southern Borneo; Eastern Borneo; Western Java; Central Java; Eastern Java; Celebes; Bali; Eastern Indonesia; Types, Arts & Habits; People of Importance; Rice. For more information about this book, or a warm welcome to see it and other books in our library at 72nd Street, NYC, please contact Kate Hunter, M.A. Oxon, in the Rare Book Department .

        Noah's Ark

      Evanston, IL, 1945. Fully developed mock-up for a game concept based on the Ark story, done by commercial artist Rebecca Falconer. Consists of a painted handmade cardboard box measuring 14 by 17 1/4 inches, containing seventeen paired animal playing cards with folding stands, a double-sided ark, all painted in tempera. Accompanying this mock-up is the correspondence Falconer had with Robert Long of the E. E. Fairchild Corp. in Rochester, NY and the instructions for playing the game, which is based on a simple rummy game. The two letters are dated January 23 and March 14, 1945. The game was apparently never produced. Some adhesive bleed-through to box top, which has some light wear to corners; tear to one side of the bottom, else a fine example of original commercial art from the American postwar period.
