Original 1945 edition Adolf Burger’s memoirs about his journeys through the Nazi concentration camps and his work in the counterfeiting workshop in Oranienburg, narrated by Sylva and Oskar Krejci. His memoirs are the basis for the film, “The Counterfieters, ” which won the 2007 Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. “Adolf Burger…took up a job in a printing house in Bratislava in 1938…he became one of those who received government-sponsored waivers from deportations as someone with skills indispensable for the country's economy. At the request of resistance members, Burger began to print false baptismal certificates for Jews scheduled for deportation, which stated that they had been Roman Catholic from birth, or baptized so before World War II. Slovaks with such documents were not deported. Burger's activity was discovered. He was … deported to the Auschwitz concentration camp…After eighteen months at Auschwitz-Birkenau, Burger's training came through for him once more. He was selected for Operation Bernhard, transferred to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp in April 1944, and eventually to the Ebensee site of the Mauthausen camp network where he was liberated by the US Army on 6 May 1945 (Wikipedia, 2016) . The covers use a montage design of US currency, British documents, and Burger’s concentration camp insignia. SUBJECT(S) : WWII, Resistance, Concentration Camps. Minimal pencil markings that do not affect text. Some tears to jacket at folds, Minimal stains and slight toning. Very good condition. Dramatic and attractive. (HOLO2-134-63A) .

        Emblemes (a k a Emblems) + Hieroglyphikes of the Life of Man

      Beautiful little English Emblem book with 100+ religious, alchemical and symbolic illustrations/engravings in two parts + a letter dated 1945 from Library of Harvard University, The Houghton Library, signed by William A. Jackson (1905-1964), the first librarian for The Houghton Library .Emblemes (a.k.a. emblems) by Fra. Quarles (Francis Quarles) + Hieroglyphikes of the Life of Man London printed for J. Williams at the Crowne in St. Paul's Churchyard 1684 (although the date looks like it could be read either as 1624 or 1634)Size, Binding and Collation: Cute little 12mo volume measuring 6.5"x4" 381 pages + preliminaries, in later, probably early-to-mid 20th century calf. Collation is as follows: blank, title page, Dedication to Edward Benlowes, To the Reader, a latin inscription, first engraving, and main text begins The First Book begining with The Invocation (1-64), The Second Book (65-124), The Third Book (125-188), The Fourth Book (189-248), The Fifth Book (249-311), book plate of The Library of J. Roy W. Barrette (probably 20th century) on past down, two blank pages, "the mind of the frontispiece", "Hieroglyphikes of the Life of Man" title page on page 317, Dedication to Lady Mary Countess of Dorset (319-20), To the Reader (321), first engraving of the Hieroglyphikes on page 322, main text alternating engravings and text 322-381, Finis.Condition: Near Fine pages in Near Fine binding, and very good+ title page. Beautiful solid binding, slight edge-wear to the edges of the boards, but overall clean and solid, text very readable, engravings mostly clear but probably towards the end of the printing run. Slight toning towards the edges of the main title page with a taped repair to the top, not affecting inner engraving, mostly clean pages, near fine, with occasional spotting, nothing serious. Overall a very good solid book from the late 17th century!Included Letter: Interestingly, this volume was apparently at first purchased or acquired then passed on and returned to Miss Mabel Zahn and Charles Sessler by Harvard University's Houghton Library as shown in a letter in the volume written and signed by William A. Jackson who was the first librarian of Houghton Library at Harvard, appointed in 1942 and remained at the post until his death in 1964. According to the letter, the seller or donor (it's not clear whether this was a donation or a sale, to Harvard but I suspect this was a sale) had dated the volume to 1634 but Jackson felt positive the book was printed in 1684 although the engraved title page's year is difficult to read. Jackson speaking for Houghton declined the book and another book, which makes me believe these were a possible transactions from an antiquarian bookseller. So this book has "partial provenance", briefly owned by Harvard University then not!NOTE: The pictures are of the actual item for sale. (The pictures are NOT a stock photo.)

An attractive booklet, printed in Dalmatia just before the end of WWII, includes Partisan music scores, songs and illustrations. The cover was printed in green and black linocut – a technique most commonly used for illustrations by the underground Partisan printing in Yugoslavia. The book was published by the underground Partisan press by the State Anti-fascist Council for the National Liberation of Croatia, in the territory held by the Partisans. As the title says, this is part II. The first part was printed in 1944 in Lika and is according to the literature now lost (Hrvatski biografski leksikon, Natko Devcic). Very Rare – we could not find any references to the book in literature, nor any examples in institutions worldwide.

        This Hunger.

      New York: Gemor Press,, 1945. With five woodblocks by Ian Hugo. Octavo. Original cream paper-covered boards, titles to spine and front cover in purple, illustrations to covers in purple, edges untrimmed. With 5 woodblock prints. Slight bumps to spine ends, a couple small faint marks to covers; an excellent copy. First and limited edition, one of 1,050 copies. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Leo, of the hooded insights .. who reads the unwritten books. With love, Anaïs". The recipient was likely Leo Lerman, editor of Harper's Bazaar at the time, and friend of Nin's, with whom she often had "whimsical and completely free talks". In 1946 Nin respectfully turned down Lerman's request for a short autobiography to use in a profile feature, writing, "I am more interested in human beings than in writing, more interested in lovemaking than in writing, more interested in living than in writing ... I walk into the fire always, and come out more alive. All of which is not for Harper's Bazaar". The illustrator was one of Nin's two husbands, Hugh Parker Guiler; they were married from 1923 until her death in 1977.

An edition, however, in English (304) bound in red cloth with the dustwrapper, and with 'Stockholm 1945' to the verso of the title-page, is listed.

He continued to serve stateside until 1945 when he requested a transfer to the infantry eventually being stationed in Guam with the 315th Wing Consolidated Photographic Laboratory. The album starts with about a dozen 7.5" x 9" photos with individual shots of men from his unit, including Dolan, followed by several official-looking photos of the lab, men processing film, and making prints, along with a mimeograph history of the unit. The remainder of the album showcases images of Dolan posing with his gun, on the beach, talking with the other soldiers, one captioned "The Teetotalers" shows a group of men with beers, as well as shots of the island, palm trees, the harbor, a church, a farmer plowing, and native houses. The albums ends with a series of images of Dolan and other men boarding a plane and two curious images of what appears to be indigenous men of New Guinea. [With] Stiff poster board, measuring 20" x 15", hand lettered with "Guam" at the top with a palm tree and cut-outs displaying six photos. The poster board features the most artful of Dolan's shots of Guam with palm trees, the beach, and native homes. A compelling album of images from one Army photographer's time on the island of Gaum. .

        Bouquet of Flowers]

      1945 - Chromolithograph. Printed on wove paper. In good condition with the exception of some faint discoloration to the surface of the paper in the margins. Image size: 25 7/8 x20 3/4 inches. This luxurious chromolithograph of a bouquet of flowers is after a painting by the celebrated Viennese porcelain painter, Joseph Nigg. 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.

      1945. 2. (WWII) Gatti, Larry. PILOT'S FLIGHT LOG BOOK. No place, (1945). 36p, 5 1/4"x 7 1/2", immitation leather, vg in protective case. Gatti (1920-1974) served in WWII from 1942-45, enlisting in Queens, NY. He was a 2nd Lieutenant and co-pilot in the 95th Bomb Group, Eighth Air Force. The log is a manuscript record of over 400 flights from his student practice flights & landings at Harris Field, MO, to "1st solo ride" to acrobatics and solo cross country, formation and instrument flying, to Boeing Fortress training at Sioux City. The log continues with B-17 flights to Labrador, Iceland, Scotland and practice in England and then records 35 raids into Germany (Oct. 1944-Mar. 1945), on Cologne, Berlin, Chemnitz, Bremen etc. and names specific targets: synthetic oil plant, Folke Wolfe plant, marshalling yards, bridges and railroads. From the dates and places Gatti would have been participating in both operations "Thunderclap and Clarion" which were designed to paralyze German troop and supply movement near the end of the war. Unfortunately these operations were carried out in heavy civilian areas and led to German accusations of "Terror" bombing. After his combat tour ends, he records flights moving B- 17's & crews near Paris, Brussels & London. Laid in is a Catholic prayer card (in Italian) which we assume he carried with him on flights.

      [Adak, Ak, 1945. Eighty-six photographs, mostly 2 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches, cornered into album pages. Brad-bound album pages, some loose. Covers lacking, album pages chipped, but photographs in very good condition. A wonderful collection of vernacular photography featuring a segregated African-American regiment in Adak, Alaska on the Aleutian Islands during World War II. Adak Island was an important strategic base for American operations against the encroaching Japanese forces during World War II. Adak Army Airfield was established on Aug. 30, 1942, to provide a forward base from which to attack Japanese forces on neighboring Kiska Island. The first four photos in the album show boxing legend, Joe Louis, who spent a great deal of time during World War II traveling around to various military installments to put on promotional boxing matches in an effort to raise money for the war. Louis is known to have fought Alaskan boxing champion Percy Blatchford in Adak during Blatchford's military service there. The remainder, and great majority of the album is composed of posed photographs of various members of an African-American regiment stationed on Adak Island during World War II. Each photograph is hand-annotated with names identifying the subjects of the photographs, including Joe Figgins, Bill Tucker, Andy Speaks, Harry Butler, Kenny Range, Hadie Owens, Tommie Rucker, Leroy Cook, Bill LaFleur, Henry Duncan, George Williams, and many others. Occasional commentary is added to the notations, including one photo captioned "Catching some Aleutian Sunshine." Sometimes the captions are humorous, as in ""Big Bill Lee - Chicago's Gift to Adak." One photograph clearly shows gravestones with Japanese writing; this photo is captioned "Jap graves." Incidentally, this may be a unique surviving view of the Japanese cemetery on Adak, as the 236 Japanese dead were taken from Adak and reburied in Japan's Chidorigafuchi National Cemetery in 1953. A few photographs show natural features, such as the Bering Sea, and man-made features, such as the "Bay Shore Highway." The last fifteen photos show black soldiers on tractors in a barren landscape; the soldiers are perhaps part of an engineering corps on Adak. A rare glimpse into the African-American soldiering life during World War II, in a rarely-seen setting during the conflict.
