        Ballet

      New York: J.J. Augustin Publisher, (1945). Very close to fine in boards in a beautiful example of the fragile jacket with just a tiny bit of loss at the spine ends. Housed in a custom card slipcase with the label from the original rare slipcase pasted on; in a clamshell box.. First Edition. Oblong quarto. 104 gravure plates. Text by Edwin Denby. 500 copies printed. A presentation copy, INSCRIBED by Brodovitch: To - Sara with love / Alexey / N.Y/ Sept. 21/ 1962. Although Brodovitch is best known as a graphic designer and art director, Ballet remains one of the most influential of the great 20th century photobooks, presaging every trend in cinematic book editing, and challenging the notion that the image had to be representational of its subject. (Parr / Badger, v1, 240-241; Roth 110-111; Open Book 136-137; Auer 314).

        A MOOD APART.

      Duke University,, [Durham, NC]: 1945 - First edition. The first appearance of this poem which was later collected in STEEPLE BUSH (1947). An unrecorded broadside, measuring approximately 7 x 10", with a photo of Frost in the Rare Book Room of the University Library centered at top and the poem printed beneath ( " . . . For any eye is an evil eye / That looks in onto a mood apart"). Flattened creasing where previously folded into quarters, two small pieces of archival tape on verso where tiny tear at intersection of creases, otherwise near fine. Together with "Library Notes," a bulletin issued for the "Friends of Duke University Library." Single sheet folded to make 4 pages; similarly creased where previously folded. The bulletin details Frost's visit to the library and the circumstances under which the library published the broadside: "For the guest-book of the Rare Book Room, Mr. Frost wrote out a valued contribution, a poem not yet published. We have obtained Mr. Frost's permission to print this poem, and it appears beneath the photograph." Rare. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Fernand Léger, la forme humaine dans l'espace [inscribed by Fernand Léger to architect Paul Nelson]

      Montréal: Les Editions de l'arbre, 1945. Livre. Bon. broché. Dédicacé par l'auteur. Edition originale. Grand In-8. Montréal, Les Editions de l'arbre, 1945. 24,5 x 19 cm, grand in-8, 96 (3) pp. - planches hors texte en noir in-fine, broché, couverture illustrée. Edition originale enrichie d'un amical ENVOI autographe signé de Fernand Léger à l'architecte Paul Nelson et à son épouse Francine (née Francine Lecoeur). D'origine américaine, Paul Nelson (1895-1979), élève d'Auguste Perret, fut, de longue date, un ami proche de Fernand Léger. Plusieurs projets lièrent les deux hommes, notamment l'hôpital mémorial France-Etats-Unis de Saint-Lô (1946-1956), conçu par Paul Nelson en étroite collaboration avec Fernand Léger, lequel réalisa une mosaïque pour le péristyle à l'entrée de l'hôpital, en décora les murs extérieurs et choisit les couleurs des chambres et des couloirs. Paul Nelson fut également pressenti pour la construction du musée Fernand Léger à Biot, mais son projet ne fut finalement par retenu. C'est lui, en revanche, qui construisit la maison de Nadia Léger à Gif-sur-Yvette. Le long article de Léger publié dans ce volume ("A propos du corps humain considéré comme un objet") se clôt d'ailleurs sur des questions architecturales : "Il apparaît à certains indices sociaux et artistiques qu'une renaissance de l'art mural est à l'horizon. L'art monumental peut et doit utiliser, en l'amplifiant, cette conception nouvelle. Les jeunes architectes qui vont reconstruire l'Europe détruite devraient regarder de ce côté. Cet art doit se placer dans de grandes architectures. Il est statique par son expression même, il respecte le mur à côté d'une conception dynamique qui, elle, détruit le mur. Il sera la mesure et l'équilibre." Quelques mois seulement après la parution de ce livre Fernand Léger et Paul Nelson, partis tous deux aux Etats-Unis pendant la guerre, revinrent en France où ils se lancèrent ensemble dans le projet de l'hôpital de Saint-Lô, considéré comme le chef-d'oeuvre de Paul Nelson. Très belle association. Couverture défraîchie..

        As We May Think

      Boston, Massachusetts: The Atlantic Monthly Company, 1945. First Edition. Wrappers. Very Good. [1]-129,[5] pages. Entire issued offered, The Atlantic Monthly, Volume 176, No. 1. The Subscriber's Issue. Small 4to. A bright copy with some foxing to the last few pages and the top of the first leaf. Spine panel is brittle with several small areas of paper loss. Usual creases near the spine on the front and rear covers. Vannevar Bush's article in this volume, 'As We May Think' (found on pages 101-108) is important in the history of computing as it anticipates hypertext, the internet, and online encyclopedias. 'Bush's article describes his proposed Memex system for organizing, storing, retrieving, and linking information. Inspired by microfilm technology-which in 1945 represented the most advanced means of storing large amounts of information-Bush conceived of the Memex as consisting of a desk equipped with projection screens, buttons and levers, a keyboard, and a storage system designed to provide instant access to microfilmed books, periodicals, documents, photographs, etc. The Memex system would allow pieces of data to be linked into permanent 'information trails' dictated by the individual user's needs, which could be called up again and modified at any future date...Only after the development of the personal computer and hyperlinks on the World Wide Web was Bush's paper resurrected as a remarkably early expression of ideas that were eventually realized in a different way on the Internet.(Origins of Cyberspace 519).' The article is remarkably clairvoyant about the world we live in today hyperlinks, Google, even Wikipedia are all examples of the mechanical world implemented in software via the internet today. A very important paper, so much so that there was a research symposium held at MIT with pioneers such as Tim Berners-Lee and Nicholas Negroponte speaking about this articles impact on their lives and work.

        Renaud et Armide.

      NRF, Paris 1945 - Tragédie en trois actes et en vers, avec les lithographies originales de Christian BERARD. Paris, Gallimard NRF, 1945, in-8, broché, sous chemise cartonnée et coffret, couverture rempliée illustrée, 154 pp. NRF Christian BERARD (1902-1949) est un peintre, illustrateur, scénographe, décorateur et créateur de costumes français. A partir de 1920, il étudia à l'Académie Ranson, où il suivit les cours d'Édouard Vuillard et de Maurice Denis. Bérard expose ses œuvres pour la première fois en 1925 à la galerie Pierre et collabore par la suite avec Jean-Michel Frank, grande figure de l'Art déco, avec lequel il réalise des panneaux peints et des projets de dessin de tapis dont s'inspireront Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli et Nina Ricci. "Son talent s'exprimera, plus que dans la compagnie des peintres dits du Néo-humanisme, auxquels il fut lié avant 1930, dans la collaboation avec les gens de théâtre, en particulier Louis Jouvet et Boris Kochno, et les poètes parmi lesquels son grand ami Jean Cocteau." Dans ce domaine, il réalisa des costumes et des décors dans une recherche d'adéquation de l'oeuvre et de l'image. Il est le créateur, entre autres, des costumes ou des décors de La Machine infernale (1934), L'École des femmes (1935) La Folle de Chaillot de Jean Giraudoux (1945), Les Bonnes de Jean Genet (1947) et Dom Juan de Molière (1948). Son chef d'oeuvre reste, La Belle et la Bête, film de Jean COCTEAU de 1946. (Bénézit, I, 639). Infimes usures à l'étui. Livres

        Hierusalem

      (England, c. 1945-1950). 12mo. (11)pp. An illuminated manuscript by the noted English calligrapher and illuminator Graily Hewitt, who, together with Edward Johnston, led the revival of the art of calligraphy at the turn of the 20th century. The calligraphed text is the hymn "Jerusalem, My Happy Home," the first known record of which appears in a 16th-century manuscript held by the British Museum and was thought to be inspired by the Meditations of St. Augustine. The manuscript opens with the title in red, and features initials in blue, red and gilt, and the gilt. Each page has eight lines, representing a full stanza of the hymn. A pencil note on the endleaf states: "Written out and gilded by Graily Hewitt. Bound by A. V. Hughes," and gives the approximate date. Very fine in quarter brown calf and tan paper-covered boards, with the title hand-lettered to the front cover.

        LITTLE FRIEND, LITTLE FRIEND

      New York: Dial Press 1945 New York: Dial Press, 1945. 1st edition, full black cloth, with printed dust jacket. Specially signed and inscribed by poet John Berryman on the FEP. The inscription by Berryman is to "Mary Jane" (Christenson Heming). The inscription reads "Congratulations! / & love / John" and is dated "7 Apr 1947" in black fountain pen ink. We acquired the book from another source indirectly from Mary's family, with the story that Mary had been one of Berryman's girl friends, and that Berryman had once said (in print, apparently) that she had "the most beautiful breasts in the world." The book JOHN BERRYMAN AND THE THIRTIES: A MEMOIR by Ernest Milton Halliday refers to the love affair of Berryman and Heming. A poignant association by Berryman wanting to give a copy of Jarrell's book (a poet whom he greatly admired) as a special gift for some accomplishment in Mary's life. Berryman and Jarrell had been friends since the early years of their careers. Their first book appearances were together in James Laughlin's FIVE YOUNG AMERICAN POETS (New Directions, 1940) along with three other poets. A few years later Berryman wrote a powerful review of Jarrell's POETRY AND THE AGE (Knopf, 1953) that appeared in THE NEW REPUBLIC (November 2, 1953) and later reprinted in the tribute RANDALL JARRELL: 1914-1965 (Farrar Straus Giroux, 1967) edited by Robert Lowell, et al. Upon his death, Berryman wrote "Jarrell's death hit me very hard . . . we were friends for a very long time." The present offering shows gentle wear and sunning to cloth along edges, the book is otherwise near fine. The worn and torn dust jacket is missing several pieces. Photo images available upon request. A unique copy.
