        BRIDESHEAD REVISITED The Sacred & Profane Memories of Captain Charles Ryder

      Chapman & Hall 1945 - Revised edition. Original red cloth lettered in gilt. Author's presentation copy, inscribed on the front endpaper, "For Father Devas from Evelyn Waugh 1945". A very good copy, slightly cocked, with a faded spine and wear to its ends. A fine association copy of Waugh's best known work, inscribed to the priest Waugh found to give deathbed absolution to his friend Hubert Duggan, inspiring the deathbed scene at the climax of Brideshead. Waugh recalls bringing Father Devas to Duggan's bedside in his diary entry of 13 October 1943, "he gave Hubert absolution. Hubert said, 'Thank you father,' which was taken as his assent. "The affect of this on Waugh was profound. "In concrete and immediate terms, the repentance and death of Hubert Duggan provided an obvious link between the secular, hedonistic world of Waugh's youth on which he looked with nostalgia and the enforced asceticism of the present - the first a preparation for the second - and between the physical deprivations and psychological disappointments and apprehensions of the present and the promise of a future in which all would in the providence of God be well." - Davis (Evelyn Waugh, Writer) The incident was obviously the catalyst for Brideshead: Waugh's diary records starting work on the novel some nine days later, and the deathbed scene was, for Waugh, the very crux of the narrative, a view he makes plain in a letter to Ronald Knox of May 1945, "I am delighted you became reconciled to B.R. in the end. It was, of course, all about the death bed. I was present at almost exactly that scene, with less extravagant decor, when a friend of mine whom we thought was in his final coma and stubbornly impenitent, whose womenfolk would only let the priest in because they thought him unconscious, did exactly that, making the sign of the cross. It was profoundly affecting and I wrote the book about that scene." Waugh viewed and referred to Brideshead as his Magnum Opus and in a quest for perfection he tinkered with it right up to and beyond publication. It has been thought that this 'revised edition' was published in advance of the first trade edition. In a letter to Tom Driberg, Waugh suggests as much, "'Revised' from an early edition for for private circulation.". However, a comparison of early editions shows that differences from the first edition are present in the revised edition and later printings, suggesting that it was issued shortly after the first edition.

        PILOT'S FLIGHT LOG BOOK.

      1945 - (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.

        Original Watercolor Studies for 'A Little Fur Family'

      n.p.: n.p., 1945. Fine. Two preliminary paintings for 'Little Fur Family' which was first published in 1946. On paper. Measures approx. 7 by 8½ inches, and each one has additional margin on one side, each with William's signature. While these are separate studies, they seem to be intended as a double spread or a cover as they flow together beautifully. The left hand image is a forest scene with waterfall, and the right image shows the Fur Family with the Little Fur Child playing with his red ball. The images are matted together to form a continuous picture in a mat 16 by 20 inches. Although not used in the first edition of the Little Fur Family, a similar scene was used in the later printings as the cover, after the fur had been discontinued. Images are fine and bright with strong signatures. Accompanied by a copy of a later edition showing the final artwork.

      1945 - 12mo.; 3 volumes; each volume bound in original taupe or beige cloth-backed yellow pictorial boards with publisher's advertisement to lower covers of volumes 1 and 2, pictorially decorated to lower cover of volume 3; pp. [iv], 5-174; [iv], 5-192 and [vi], 7-166 + [i]; with line-drawings throughout; an exceptionally good set with each volume in clean and very sound condition; volume 1 with very light external dusting, minor marking to lower board, slight shelf-rubbing to edges and tiny wear to corner tips, internally very fresh with the usual toning to stock and a neat contemporary ownership inscription to front free endpaper; volume 2 very fresh with a touch of marking to boards and a child's name to front pastedown, internally fine and fresh with the unavoidable toning to stock; volume 3 equally clean, both externally and internally, and uninscribed; scarce as a set in this condition. True first editions, in Swedish, issued without dustwrappers. Volume 2 is the first printing of the first edition, with the reference to the 26th Thousand printing alongside this title on the rear board, as called for, and without any reference to the illustrator, whose name was added to the title-page of the second edition, issued later the same year. Pippi Longstocking, and its two early sequels by Astrid Lindgren Pippi Goes on Board and Pippi In The South Seas have become international classics and probably the best-known books for children to come out of Sweden. The eponymous child hero, Pippi, is a nine-year-old redheaded orphan who is bold and resourceful with superhuman strength and ingenuity. Poignantly believes her mother to be an angel and imagines that her father, who was lost at sea, is living an exotic life as a Cannibal King in a far distant land.

        LEFT HAND, RIGHT HAND! THE COMPLETE SET OF AUTOBIOGRAPHY Comprising: Left Hand, Right Hand!; The Scarlet Tree; Great Morning; Laughter In The Next Room; and Noble Essences Or Courteous Revelations

      Macmillan -1950 1945 - Five volumes, all first UK editions. Publisher's original red cloth with gilt titling and decoration to the spine. All in pictorial dustwrappers with pictorial endpapers featuring the author's handprints. Each volume inscribed by Sitwell to E. M. Forster "For Morgan" on the half-title, dated on publication sometimes with a short epithet "With affection and admiration" (vol 1), "whose only fault is his invisibility" (vol 3). Forster's bookplate to each volume. A near fine set, in very good to near fine dustwrappers. The first volume shows chips to the spine ends and corners and internal repairs to the spine joints of the dustwrapper. Small chips to the head of the spine of volume three. "Osbert Sitwell combines sensibility, humaneness, and the desire to write well. The strands of the aristocrat, who wants to lead, and the artist who wants to create are finely combined" E. M. Forster reviewing the first volume for BBC Eastern Service, May 1945. Forster was an acquaintance of Osbert Sitwell and his siblings, often meeting at social gatherings and poetry readings - one of which, in September 1943, was punctuated by a doodle-bug raid while Edith Sitwell read "Still Falls The Rain". Though friends, Forster remained on the periphery of the Sitwells and their literary set, perhaps earning the inscription of the third volume; "For Morgan, whose only fault is his invisibility".

First edition of the Dutch translation of an extensive description of the Dutch colony Surinam, "one of the best books, at the time it was written, in regard to the colonies" (Sabin). It deals with both Surinam's geography (climate, soil, coasts, rivers, towns, forts, etc.) and inhabitants. Many chapters deal with the native inhabitants (Indians) of Surinam and their culture and the slaves, commenting on their origins and way of live. Also included is a chapter on how a planter or slave-owner should treat his slaves, emphasizing humility and sodality. The largest part of the book describes Surinam's flora and fauna, in particular commercial crops like sugarcane, coffee, cacao and cotton. The large engraved map shows the numerous plantations, all numbered and with their names included in the preliminaries. The other engravings depict a Surinam tent-boat, a the working of mills in the sugarcane industry.With bookplate and a library stamp. Only a few tiny spots and a small tear in the half-title, otherwise in very good condition. Binding rubbed along the extremities and somewhat worn along the spine, but structually sound.
