        Lord's Prayer"

      NY, 1945. A stunning original painting in ink and gouache by the renowned illustrator Arthur Szyk, signed and dated by the artist. The painting measures 7 3/4 by 5 3/4 inches, on illustration board measuring 12 by 9 1/4 inches. This illustrated Lord’s Prayer is comprised of fourteen calligraphed lines, illuminated in bright colors in the style of a medieval manuscript. Along the left margin of the page is an intricate border, incorporating portraits of people praying, including a little boy kneeling with his hands folded. A floral border extends along the bottom of the page, and tiny, delicate curls of tracery fill in the border and extend along the top edge. Szyk’s work is characterized by its minute detail, and his style is very much in the tradition of Eastern miniaturists. Szyk was born in Lodz, Poland in 1894. His artistic talents became evident at an early age, and he was sent to Paris to study at the Académie Julian when he was a teenager. He was a prolific illustrator of books, many of which were of Jewish content, including his masterpiece, The Haggadah. After World War II, Szyk moved to the United States, where he became one of the chief artists for the Limited Editions Club and contributed illustrations and caricatures to several magazines. This illustration was published in the January 1946 edition of Coronet magazine, inside the front cover. Mounted and framed. On the sheet of illustration board, around the illustration, are publisher’s notes. Two small spots of tape residue, light soiling to margins, light toning; the painting is in fine condition.

        [Bouquet of Flowers]

      circa 1945. Chromolithograph by Mourlot, Printed on thick faux laid wove paper. In good condition with the exception of some discoloration to the top margin, outside image. Image size: 25 1/2 x 19 7/8 inches. 31 1/2 x 23 5/8 inches. This luxurious chromolithograph of a bouquet of flowers is after a painting by the celebrated Viennese porcelain painter, Joseph Nigg. Signature and date lower right of image: "Jos. Nigg 1813". A celebrated Viennese flower painter, Josef Nigg studied under Johan Drechsler at the Academie des Beaux-Arts in Vienna. Primarily a flower and fruit painter, Nigg was best known for his highly detailed still lifes on porcelain. Between 1800 and 1848 he became one of the foremost decorators at the Vienna porcelain factory, and his delicate paintings are considered some of the finest examples of the Austrian style. Examples of his superb work can be found in some of the best museums in the world, including the Hermitage in St. Petersburg. Known for his luxurious still lifes, Nigg paid close attention to every minute detail of the composition from bloomy roses to dewy peaches. This large chromolithograph is a lovely example of his intricate paintings and effortlessly conveys the luxuriousness and grandeur of his monumental designs.

        Kristina Collection.

      A collection of 30 books and a playbill inscribed to Kristina Odelberg/Hedenblad, the woman whose name was used for the main female character in The Emigrant Novels, and with whom the author had an extramarital affair. Moberg's affair with Kristina Odelberg/Hedenblad was discovered through this collection of presentation copies. She was apparently of great importance to the author, who gave her these books, many of them with intimate inscriptions, between the years 1945 and 1969. The copy of Vår ofödde son (Our Unborn Son, 1945), a play which partly deals with an abortion, is the only book in the collection that has been bestowed with a fine binding, suggesting that this book/theme was essential to Kristina. The inscription to Kristina by the translator in the copy of the Danish edition of the same work, which says "this book, which is partly about you [...]", makes it clear. Not much is known about this woman. We know that she married an army officer in Linköping in 1948, the same year as Moberg went to the USA to start his research for The Emigrant Novels. This collection is of great importance since it throws new light on Moberg's production from 1945 and onwards. We will send a complete list of the collection on request

        Important Truman document written 5 days before FDR's death

      Manuscript signed "Best wishes to Erans Finnegan / from Harry Truman," 5 pages, page one 8" x 3, pages two through five 8" x 12.5". Buffalo, New York. April 7, 1945. Waterstained, with edge wear, partial separations at folds, and internal tear. Completely legible with bold Truman signature. Good condition. A scarce speech transcript from an address delivered to the Erie County Democratic Committee only five days before he would assume the Presidency upon the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt. The transcript, entitled "The Job Ahead", is inscribed at the top of the first page: "Best wishes to Erans Finnegan from Harry Truman." Undoubtedly signed in the rare period based on the "now President U.S." inscription. The speech looks ahead to the state of the nation at and after World War II and reads in part: "...Prosperity, like peace, is an elusive state of affairs, which can easily be lost by neglect...America will never again permit the callous indifference, the economic and political inaptitude of the late twenties and early thirties to return to political power. No depression will be allowed to grow, like a Frankenstein monster, ultimately threatening our entire social structure...We hear much about the problem of returning veterans. Well, this time there surely will be no Bonus Army! Already we have created the Veterans' Bill of Rights, which contains a whole program for a modest repayment of our everlasting debt to thos to whom we owe our freedom...Fear has been expressed that when our fighting forces return these new workers might flood the labor market and threaten us with heavy unemployment...According to an official poll, after the war doubt one-fifth of our 18 million women employees will be anxious to return to their homes. These three and a half million women alone may provide sufficient jobs for most veterans seeking brief, about six million people may be expected to leave the nation's labor force when victory comes, while there are only about four million veterans ready to step into their places. Modern scientific discoveries should give rise to new important industries. Therefore, if our high production is maintained, or increased to meet the demands of peace, America may actually experience manpower shortages for some time in certain localities..."
