        La grande peur dans la montagne *

      H.-L. Mermod, Lausanne 1945. - En feuilles 30 x 24, couverture imprimée rempliée, couverture imprimée à rabats (manque deux tiers inférieur du dos. à relier ?). L'un des 15 exemplaires de tête numérotés sur Guarro Molivell à la main, avec suite sur Chine, planche refusée, dessin original et page manuscrite. 34 lithographies originales de Hans Berger, répétées en suite signée, tirées par Frings à Genève. A part le défaut signalé, bel exemplaire de tête de cet illustré qui a la saveur de l'authentique. Nous en avons eu un autre, avec exactement les mêmes caractéristiques, ce qui nous amène à penser que la seconde planche refusée (la première, que nous avons eue deux fois, représente une route tournante à flanc de montagne en premier plan et des maisons dans le fonds) signalée à la justification n'a pas systématiquement été intégrée dans ce tirage de haut luxe. Fut-elle en quelque sorte maudite, ainsi deux fois écartée de l'ouvrage ?A notre avis le dessin joint est plutôt un lavis, signé comme les planches de la suite, certaines ayant parfois été oubliées. Notre original, à peine sépia, représente une chèvre au repos dans l'herbe des hauteurs; une seconde composition originale, non signée et figurant un pan de montagne à la limite de l'abstraction, se trouve au verso.L'impression est due à l'incontournable Kundig, à Genève.Exemplaire courant en demi maroquin sur demande.[Bringolf 33b]

        The Dwarf [Dvärgen] [Signed / Ingraverat]

      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.

        Cannery Row

      New York: The Viking Press, 1945. New York: The Viking Press, 1945 First edition, first issue. Publisher's buff cloth (subsequently issued in canary yellow cloth), lettered in dark blue; in the original pictorial dust jacket designed by Arthur Hawkins, Jr., with an illustration of Cannery Row by Hawkins to the front panel, titled in yellow. Near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, minor spotting to the endpapers and page edges, bookseller's plate to the rear pastedown, otherwise bright and clean pages; unclipped dust jacket, with some light wear and minor nicks to the extremities, short closed tear and light creasing to the top edge of the rear panel, light pencil notation to the front flap, bright spine and panels. An excellent copy. Cannery Row is a Depression-era novel set in Monterey, California. The plot takes place on a grungy street with "the gathered and scattered, tin and iron and rust and splintered wood, chipped pavement and weedy lots, junk heaps, sardine canneries of corrugated iron, honky tonks, restaurants and whore houses, and little crowded groceries, and laboratories and flophouses." The actual street in Monterey has since been renamed "Cannery Row" in honor of this iconic novel. The plot features an unlikely cast of characters, including a marine biologist, a grocer, a restaurateur, and a group of local vagabonds. Cannery Row is exemplar of Steinbeck's talent for making even the most unsavory characters relatable and endearing; Mack and his group of homeless squatters are described as "gentlemen and philosophers united by a common dislike of a steady job and a mutual feeling for the pleasures of living according to their lights." Much of the inspiration for this novel and its 1954 sequel Sweet Thursday were drawn from the author's own life; Steinbeck was born in Monterey County, grew up knowing fishermen and other laborers, and was close friends with a marine biologist, Ed Ricketts, who worked on the real Cannery Row.. 1st English Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Dust Jacket Included.

        Naked City

Illustrated with black and white photographs throughout. Spine gently rolled, light toning to front free endpaper. An excellent copy in a dust jacket with slightly chipped corners and larger chip to head of spine panel with part loss of 'W' in Weegee. First edition, second printing, of Weegee's first book. His nickname (from the Ouija board) was derived from his apparently psychic ability to beat authorities to the crime scene, a feat actually made possible by eavesdropping the emergency services on a portable police-band shortwave radio. He maintained a working darkroom in the trunk of his car in pursuance of this urgent street aesthetic. Naked City formed the foundation for the 1948 film of the same name.

        Electron Optics and the Electron Microscope

      New York: John Wiley and Sons, Inc.; Chapman & Hall, Limited, London, 1945. New York: John Wiley and Sons, Inc.; Chapman & Hall, Limited, London,, 1945. Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine and upper board in silver, publisher&#39;s printed bookplate design to front pastedown. With the dust jacket. Diagrams, charts, and illustrations from photographs throughout. Just a little faint mottling to spine, otherwise the cloth is quite sharp and the contents clean and fresh. An excellent copy in the lightly rubbed jacket with minor fading of the spine panel and a few nicks and short splits, and closed tears to the upper panel and folds repaired with tape to the verso. First edition, first printing of the first comprehensive text on electron microscopes by the team that developed the first commercially viable model. A very attractive copy and rare in the dust jacket. Though the concept of the electron microscope had been developed during the 1920s, researchers faced a number of difficulties in creating a machine that was both practical and powerful. The first commercially available model, the EM1 developed at Imperial College, London, could not exceed the resolution of the most powerful light microscopes, a major stumbling block to its uptake as a scientific tool. In 1938, a team at the University of Toronto which included a co-author of this volume, James Hillier, constructed the first effective, high-resolution model. Vladimir Zworykin, a pioneer of television technology, was then at RCA and in 1939 he convinced them to fund the development of a commercial electron microscope, producing one prototype before hiring Hillier in February 1940. The second design by Hillier, based on the Toronto model, was ready by July of that year and became the basis for RCA&#39;s groundbreaking line of microscopes, which the team continued to improve upon throughout the 1940s. This fascinating and copiously illustrated volume based on their research covers all aspects of electron microscope theory, design, operation, and scientific and commercial applications.

        Brideshead Revisited

      Boston: Little, Brown, 1945. Boston: Little, Brown,, 1945. The Sacred and Profane Memories of Captain Charles Ryder. Octavo. Contemporary presentation binding of red quarter morocco, titles to spine gilt, red cloth boards, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Housed in a red quarter morocco slipcase and chemise. Upper board detached. Spine and edges of boards faded, some light spotting to boards. A very good copy. First US edition, first printing. Presentation copy inscribed by Waugh on the front free endpaper, "Henie Peters, with love from, Evelyn 1946". Henie Peters was the wife of Waugh&#39;s agent A. D. Peters, with whom the author kept up a detailed correspondence, now housed at the Harry Ransom Center, during the five months it took to write Brideshead. Peters spent a great deal of time and effort getting commissions and contracts for Waugh in America. With this novel, Peters&#39;s American partner, the Ann Watkins Agency, secured Waugh&#39;s future with Little, Brown, reportedly "crazy to get Waugh". He certainly tested their enthusiasm : obsessed with perfecting Brideshead, Waugh insisted on revising in proof stage, despite the fact that they had set type from his already revised first trade edition. This copy is likely one of what must have been a small number of the deluxe American Bridesheads Waugh himself had bound, or had Little, Brown prepare for him: his inscription is on a binder&#39;s leaf. We have never handled any other copies of this issue with a Waugh presentation, nor have we seen any other specially bound.

        Illustrated and Signed First Day Cover

      , 1945. 1945. unbound. Outstanding and historically important signed First Day Cover, postmarked September 28, 1945, the day the war ended in the Pacific, on which Yamashiro has drawn a detailed map outlining the various islands and waterways in the Solomon group and pinpoints what he perceived to be the exact location where he rammed and subsequently sank the U.S. PT-109. Conspicuously drawn are Kolombangara Island and the Vella Gulf which Yamashiro indicates to be the location of the collision course, marking it "PT" and "AMAGIRI", boldly signing his name in full with rank of Captain and dating the incident as having occurred on August 2, 1943. In addition to Yamshiro&#39;s map, this envelope has a hand-colored printed scene of an American marine, tanks, and amphibious vessels engaged in combat, created by known artist Day Lowry. The envelope is further enhanced with the addition of a JFK five-cent U.S. postage stamp applied and cancelled on May 29, 1954, its first day of issue. Very good condition. Japanese naval officer and commander of the destroyer Amagiri which sank the PT-109 commanded by John F. Kennedy in the Pacific during World War II.

      Wien, Erwin Müller, 1945.. 4°. o. Pag. [18 Bll.] OHpgm. in japan. Bindung.. Nr. 41 von 100 num. Expl., mit der eighd. Signatur Jenes. - R. fachmännisch ergänzt, leichte Gbrsp. - Jene (1904 - 1984) bekennt sich seit seiner ersten Begegnung mit der Philosophie des Surrealismus in den Schriften von Andre Breton, zur Geisteshaltung des Surrealismus.1922 - 1924 studierte er an der Akademie der Bildenden Künste in München. 1924/25 nahm er ein Studium an der Ecole nationale des beaux-arts, der Academie Julian und der Academie de la Grand Chaumiere in Paris auf. Dort lebte er bis zu seiner Rückkehr nach Saarbrücken im Jahr 1928, wo er bis zum Jahr 1935 als frei schaffender Künstler arbeitete. 1935 emigrierte er auf Grund der politischen Entwicklung in Deutschland nach Wien, wo er nach geschiedener erster Ehe Erica Lillegg heiratete. Andre Breton, Paul Celan, Max Ernst und andere Vertreter der surrealistischen Bewegung gehören zu Jenes geistigen Weggefährten in Wien und Paris. Besonders mit Celan verband ihn eine enge Freundschaft. Im Wien der Nachkriegszeit (1945-50) wurde er zum Förderer und Vermittler des Surrealismus; dort organisierte er gemeinsam mit Paul Celan und Arnulf Neuwirth die erste Surrealismus-Ausstellung. Weiterhin war er in Wien als Bildredakteur für die Zeitschrift "Plan" und als Mitherausgeber der "Surrealistischen Publikationen" tätig. Mit Albert Paris Gütersloh wurde er zum Spiritus Rector der Wiener Schule des Phantastischen Realismus. (Zitat)

First edition. This book continues the story of the 7th Armoured Division begun by Lt.-Col. Michael Carver in A Short History of the 7th Armoured Division October 1938 to May 1943. Written by Captains Lindsay and Johnston, it follows the "Desert Rats" from the end of the North Africa campaign to the British Victory Parade in Berlin on 21 July 1945. This copy is elevated by additional content which, when combined with the book, makes for an intriguing collection of documents concerning the 7th Armoured Division. Pasted to front pastedown is a handwritten letter dated 14 March [1946]; written on ¾ County of London Yeomanry stationary, the author mentions being stationed in "an enormous castle" in Schleswig. Pasted to front free endpaper and title page verso is a newspaper clipping from the London Illustrated News, dated 2 February 1946, detailing the formation and subsequent action of the 7th Armoured division. Several magazine clippings featuring commanders of the 7th Armoured division are pasted to rear flyleaves. In addition, loosely inserted is a 1944 Christmas card specially designed for the 7th Armoured Division, showing the division&#39;s mascot, a red jerboa, visiting places where the division had seen action. Also loosely inserted is a typewritten letter signed Frank Miles and dated 24 April 1947, discussing the loan of a copy of the book and his memories of the engagements of the 7th Armoured division prior to leaving the Middle East in 1942.

        Cannery Row

      New York: The Viking Press, 1945. New York: The Viking Press, 1945. First edition. Fine/Very Good +. In the correct, first issue buff-colored cloth (second issue is canary yellow). A Fine copy of the book, clean and sharp with minor pushing at the spine ends, otherwise lovely. In a Very Good+ to Near Fine dust jacket with minor wear at the spine ends and corners, but without significant chips or tears. & & Famed critic Edmund Wilson said "I believe that it is the one [Steinbeck book] I have most enjoyed reading." Steinbeck&#39;;s straightforward prose follow the trials and tribulations of the people living along Cannery Row, in Great Depression era Monterrey, California. Indeed, the fame of the novel would help turn Cannery Row into a kind of tourist attraction. Steinbeck had just come home from being a war correspondent, and the experience - along with his failing marriage - scarred him considerably. He began this book as kind of an escape, both for him and his readers. "Some critics have suggested the book was specifically an attempt to escape the harsh realism of the war and infuse some cheerfulness into his reading audience." (Critical Companion to John Steinbeck). Fine in Very Good +. dust jacket.

        Produced just after the surrender, Lieutenant General Geoffrey Keyesí unique hand-colored and annotated map outlining the division of Germany per the Berlin Declaration, along with 25 contemporary letters of Keyes discussing events of these historic times

      Germany: , June 1945 Color map, 22î x 29î. Administrative Map of Western-Germany, June 4, 1945. One mid-horizontal fold, one mid-vertical fold. Pinholes at corners from posting it on a wall or bulletin board. Fine condition. Titled ìAdministrative Map / Western-Germany,î dated ì4 June 1945,î printed by the 649th Engineer Topographic Battalion (ì649th Engr. Top. Bn 1945î) in Waiblingen-bei-Stuttgart. The landkreise (rural district), stadtkreis (urban district within landkreis), and land boundaries (made up of adjoining stadtkreis) are noted. Identified with flags, there are three Region Headquarters (Darmstadt, Marburg, Stuttgart) and five R.B. Headquarters (Frankfurt, Kassel, Wiesbaden, Mannheim, Karlsruhe). It was agreed at the Yalta Conference, held in Crimea, February 4-11, 1945, that after the war, Germany would be split into four occupied zones: American, British, French, and Russian. On May 7, 1945, Germany signed an unconditional surrender at Allied headquarters in Reims, France, to take effect the following day. The Berlin Declaration of June 5, 1945, confirmed the division of Allied-occupied Germany into four occupation zones according to the Yalta Conference. Eight areas are outlined by hand in various colors. There are 17 landkreis at the western and southern borders of this map which are not outlined. These areas are in the French occupied zone. France was not represented at Yalta and Russia would only agree to a separate French occupation zone ìwithin the British and American zones.î It is possible that when this map was printed, it was not yet determined if the 17 non-outlined landkreis were American. The four divisions were not confirmed until the Berlin Declaration on June 5, 1945, the day after this map was published. The French zone includes the stadtkreis Baden-Baden and Bavaria. The French zone bordered mostly France and Switzerland, but also small parts of Belgium, Luxembourg, and Austria. Included is a color photocopy of the four occupied zones indicating the area depicted in the Administrative Map of Western-Germany here offered. Also present are 25 pages of V-Mail, each 4.25î x 5.25î, from Lieutenant General Keyes to his wife, May-August 1945. She was living at the Hotel Thayer, West Point. V-Mail used standardized stationery and microfilm processing to produce lighter, smaller airplane cargo, making space available for war supplies. V-Mail was used from mid-1942 to the end of 1945. Excerpts: ìThe capitulation of the Germans yesterday has us all on the hump-just as much so as while we were still fighting Ã? We are still awfully busy even if the fighting has ceased on this front Ã? ìVE Day!! Now if we can quickly wind up the Jap affair we can really relax Ã? We move to Salzburg this week Ã?

        Sammlung von 90 Dossiers und Berichten der GEA [German External Assets]-Branch über Rolle und Entwicklung einzelner österreichischer Betriebe und Unternehmen nach dem Anschluß 1938 (darunter Universale Baugesellschaft, Junghans AG, Anglo Elementar sowie Erste Allgemeine Versicherung).

      [Wien], [1945-49].. Typoskripte in bedruckten Originalflügelmappen, diese teils mit zeitgenöss. Stempel 'Property of the USACA'. Zusammen 90 'Reports' mit insgesamt ca. 4600 SS. Folio.. Die vorliegenden Berichte betreffen jene in der amerikanischen Besatzungszone (Teile Wiens, Oberösterreich, Stadt und Land Salzburg) gelegenen Betriebe, die nach 1938 "arisiert" wurden und damit in den Besitz deutscher Staatsbürger oder des deutschen Reiches übergingen. Gegenstand der Untersuchungen waren weiters auch Töchter deutscher Mutterbetriebe sowie deutsche Unternehmen, die gegen Ende des Krieges aus bombardierten Gebieten nach Österreich ausgelagert wurden. Die von einzelnen Arbeitsgruppen der U[nited] S[tates] A[llied] C[ommission] for A[ustria] unter Nennung der jeweiligen Mitarbeiter verfaßten 'Reports' beinhalten neben einer Aufstellung der Kapital- und Beteiligungsverhältnisse (sowohl 'prior to the Anschluß' als auch 1945) und einem zusammenfassenden Bericht über Firmengegenstand und -tätigkeit detaillierte Informationen über die jeweiligen Besitzerwechsel, Bilanzen und Saldenlisten von 1938 bis 1945 sowie die verschiedenartigsten ergänzenden Informationen (Polizeiberichte, Befragungsprotokolle, Graphiken über Marktanteile u.ä.). - Aus dem Bericht der 'Universale Hoch- und Tiefbau AG' erfährt man etwa, daß sie bereits kurz nach dem Anschluß zu 61,61% in deutschem Besitz (61,27% lt. GEA 'male fide ownership') gewesen sein soll. Beim Dossier über die vor dem Anschluß im Besitz der OÖ Bauernkredit befindlichen Ausrüstungswerke GmbH in Bachmanning reicht ein Blick auf das Verzeichnis der hinzugekommenen 'Betriebsstellen' (Sachsenhausen, Buchenwald, Auschwitz, Dachau und Stutthof), um auf die neuen Besitzer schließen zu können. Die Reichswerke 'Hermann Göring' (später VOEST) sind mit einem umfangreichen Bericht über die ihr angeschlossene Wohnungs AG vertreten. Auch einige der zuletzt prominent gewordenen Fälle wie jener der Creditanstalt werden an verschiedenen Stellen ausführlich diskutiert, so zum Beispiel im Protokoll der Befragung Emil Puhls, des Vizepräsidenten der Reichsbank, in der er Fragen wie "How were the Rothschilds divested of their interest in the Creditanstalt?" zu beantworten hatte. - Bei den vorliegenden Dokumenten handelt es sich zumindest um die einzig zugänglichen Exemplare in Europa, lediglich der National Archives Information Server in Washington (gopher.nara.gov:70) verweist unter dem Hinweis "security classified" kurz zu Record Group 260.11.2 auf "Correspondence, reports, case files and other records of component organizations" [der USACA]. Eine Anfrage im Österreichischen Staatsarchiv nach archivalischem Niederschlag dieser Nachforschungen der amerikanischen Besatzungsmacht blieb ebenso ergebnislos wie die Recherchen in sonstigen österreichischen Bibliotheken und Sammlungen.
