      1946 - MORRIS, Wright. The Inhabitants. New York and London: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1946. Slim quarto, original pale green cloth, original dust jacket. $2500.First edition of this "first work in photofiction," with 52 black-and-white photogravure plates of America at mid-century, an often haunting record of a people known by their imprint on the land."Often called one of the nation's most unrecognized writers," Wright Morris was frequently compared to Faulkner and Cather for his "evocation of an idiosyncratic America" (New York Times). In addition to a legacy of 19 novels, Morris produced five books of photography, a passion first inspired by a 1938 cross-country trip where, in his words, he "saw the American landscape crowded with ruins I wanted to salvage." In 1942, having won the "second Guggenheim Fellowship ever awarded in photography (the first had gone to Edward Weston in 1937)," he photographed a history he felt was disappearing. This groundbreaking "first work in photofiction" wedded Morris' prose and a photographic focus that searched out not merely a nation's people, "but their artifacts-objects (mostly of wood) bearing their imprint." On seeing Morris' images, Thomas Mann wrote him, praising these photographs so vivid with "the harsh beauty of ugliness, the romanticism of the commonplace, the poetry of the unpoetical" (Roth, 122). The Inhabitants would become the first of a trilogy by Morris, followed by The Home Place (1948) and God's Country and My People (1968). Owner inscription to front dust jacket flap.Book fine; light edge-wear and soiling, some chipping and slight abrasions minimally affecting text on spine of extremely good, unrestored dust jacket.

        An Interpretation of The Twelve Steps of the Alcoholics Anonymous Program [later called The Little Red Book].

      Coll-Webb Co., Minneapolis, Minnesota 1946 - Half title + TP + [5] = Contents + [6] = Author's Note + [7] = Dedication + Page Nine - Page One Hundred Sixteen, 4?" x 6¾". First Edition, First Printing, Inscribed by Dr. Bob SmithSIGNED by DR. BOB SMITH - First Edition, First Printing of "The Little Red Book"In 1942, Ed Webster, a member of the Nicollet Group of Alcoholics Anonymous in Minneapolis, began teaching classes on "the study and application" of the Twelve Steps of A.A. Classes were attended by the many newcomers who were then joining the group and they were run using a set of manually typed instruction sheets. Eventually, the demand for access to this format became so great, that, in August of 1946, Webster partnered with Barry C. (the first sober member in Minnesota) and they privately printed the most recent revision of the text in book form. The half-title of that first printing read "The Twelve Steps" and the title page pronounced the book to be "An Interpretation of the Twelve Steps of the Alcoholics Anonymous Program." [NOTE: We have much more information on this book, but ABE's restrictions on size prevent it appearing here. Please contact Athena Rare Books directly for more details.]The present copy is a first edition, first printing copy (identifiable not only by the MCMXLVI date on the title page, but also by the 116 pages of content - all later printings were longer) and it has been signed by Dr. Bob Smith on the half-title page in his distinctive hand with blue ink: "Best wishes for / continued success / Dr. Bob" The original publisher's burgundy pebbled cloth binding with no printing whatsoever on the exterior of the book. There is just the most minor of wear to the covers. The front side hinge has been professionally reinforced. Other than Dr. Bob's inscription there is no writing whatsoever in this book. A clean, tight, bright copy of a difficult book to find even without the inscription, but Bob Smith's message of hope and his signature make this a truly rare find and a singular contribution to any substantive collection of A.A. materials.

        Australia Her Natural and Industrial Resources. In the Post-War World.

      London.. Dated in image 1946. Published ca. 1946.. Color pictorial / pictographic map poster, 19 1/4 x 29 1/4 inches (49 x 73.5 cm) on sheet size 19 3/4 x 30 inches (50 x 76cm). Originally folded, now mounted on archival paper, minimising folds. Very good condition. One of a series of maps of the British colonies highlighting their rich resources designed by MacDonald Gill in 1942 for the British Government; the poster was then issued over a period of several years with changing text in the decorative banner at lower right. This particular copy was issued shortly after the end of World War II; the text reads: "IN THE POST-WAR WORLD. Australia has emerged from the World War with increased stature, as a 'Pacific' Power. During the struggle her industrial resources were completely reorganised, and her factories turned out armaments and aircraft of many kinds. Her wool and foodstuffs helped to clothe and feed the armies of the United Nations. She enters the era of peace strongly equipped for further advance." Exquisite pictographs of the natural resources, strong color, textual interest, a striking compass rose: these design features all attest to Gill's graphic genius which had a profound impact on the course of 20th century pictorial mapmaking. Lower left: "Printed in England by Alf Cooke Ltd., Leeds and London. 51-9063." Lower right: "O.P.D. 39/219/6." .

      A colour lithographic poster, reference P.W.8, [1946], printed by Stafford & Co, London, double royal (40" x 25"), laid down on light card, presented in a seemly modern frame. In very good condition, the image bright and sharp, some folds & closed tears evident on close examination! Frank Sherwin was born in 1896 in Derby and trained first at the Derby School of Art and then the Heatherley School of Fine Art in London. He was well known for his railway posters and between 1937 and 1966 he designed around 40 posters for the Big Four railway companies and British Railways. He died in Cookham in Berkshire in 1986 where he had lived for over 45 years. This poster is from a series of three posters designed by Sherwin for the GWR, the other two being Devon (P.W.9) and Somerset (P.W.10). After the war the GWR gave their posters post-war (P.W.) references starting with P.W.1 (Newquay by Alker Trip) and finishing with P.W.33 (Paignton by Relf), just prior to nationalisation at the end of 1947

        An Elementary Derivation of the Equivalence of Mass and Energy.

      Haifa, The Hebrew Institute of Technology Haifa, (1946). 4to. Offprint from "Technion Journal. A Yerabook Devoted to the Advancement of Technological Training and Research in Palestine and the Middle East". (4) pp. Clean and fine. First edition in the scarce offprint of an importent paper as it represents Einstein's last and most simple derivation of the energy-mass relation, the famous equivalence expressed in the equation E=mc2.Einstein was never satisfied with his 1905 (and later) derivation(s) of the mass-energy relation. In spite of many strenous efforts he did not succeeded in establishing a general proof of the relation. "That he also always strived for greater generality by narrowing down the range of the postulated premises, can be gathered from the introductory remarks to his last published derivation of 1946 (the paper offered)"(Max Jammer): "The following derivation of the law of equivalence, which has not been published before, has two advantages.Although it makes use of the principle of special relativity, it does not presume the formal machinery of the theory but uses only three kown laws: (1) The law of the conservation of momentum. (2) The expression for the pressure of radiation; that is the momentum of a complex ofradiation moving in a fixed direction. (3) The well known expression for the aberration of light (influenceof the motion of the earth on the apparent location of the fixed stars - Bradley)" (Einstein in the foreword to the offered paper).Weil: 218 - Boni: 253.- Not in Shields. The paper was reprinted in "Out of My Later Years", 1950.

      Group of books, manifestos, exhibition catalogs, and original work related to the Czech post-war surrealist group Skupina Ra (Ra Group), approximately 17 items total, several duplicates, including the group's two 1946 anthologies, "A Zatím Co Válka (And While the War)", and Skupina Ra, which contain their manifestos; individual exhibition catalogues by Josef Istler and Bohdan Lacina; examples of book design and illustration by Istler and Václav Tikal; and literary works by other members of the group, especially Ludvík Kundera. Illustrated throughout. Various sizes and formats, mostly 8vo. Most volumes with orig. wrpps. Various cities (Czech Republic) 1946-1987. Some volumes signed and inscribed. Skupina Ra was a group of painters, graphic artists, photographers, poets, writers, and translators that became active in the late 1930s, continued to exist illegally during the German Protectorate, and held public exhibits in the late 1940s before being banned by the Czech Communist goverment in 1948 as a hostile movement. Its core members included Zden k Lorenc, Ludvík Kundera, Josef Istler, Miloš Ko e ek, Bohdan Lacina, Vilém Reichmann, Václav Tikal, and Václav Zykmund. Although Surrealism was forbidden by both the Fascist Protectorate and the Communist goverment, it was a strong influence in Czech post-war art and literature. As of November 2016, most titles appear to be held by very few North American institutions or not at all.

        24 (davon 16 eigenh. und 8 ms.) Briefe und (Bild-)Postkarten mit eh. U. Wien, 1946-1967.

      1946. Zusammen 29 SS. 4to und 8vo. Mit 6 Kuverts. Inhaltsreiche Korrespondenz mit Josef Wesely: "Aber, wie Ihnen für Ihre lieben Gaben danken? Sind doch meine neuen Bücher nach wie vor von der Zensur des Unterrichtsministeriums verboten, oder, besser gesagt, dieses Ministerium gibt für sie, solange die Russen im Lande sind, keine Druckgenehmigung, und mein sehr ängstlicher Verleger wagt es nicht, ohne diese Druckgenehmigung ein Buch herauszubringen [...]" (Br. v. 12. XII. 1948). - "Ich bin keine sehr angerührte Natur", schreibt Eichthal unterm 19. III. 1960 in Anbetracht eines mit "Lieselotte Eltz-Hoffmann" unterzeichneten Leserbriefs an den 'Soldat', in dem die Verfasserin den "operettenhaften" Klischeecharakter der Soldaten in Eichthals Romanen kritisiert, "ich weiß, daß ein öffentlich tätiger Schriftsteller auch ungünstige Kritik vertragen muß, und es liegt mir fern, die gekränkte Leberwurst zu spielen. Aber so ein gehässiges Urteil über mein zweiundzwanzig Bände umfassendes Lebenswerk glaube ich doch nicht verdient zu haben [...]". - Rudolf von Eichthal - während des Ersten Weltkriegs Oberst und Generalstabschef in Südtirol, Rußland und auf dem Balkan - war nach Ende des Krieges als Schriftsteller und Musiker tätig. Ab 1920 Mitglied der Staatsoper und des Burgtheaters, wurde Eichthal auch durch zahlreiche Romane und Erzählungen bekannt, insbesondere durch den Roman "Der Kreuzberg" (1928), in dem er das Soldatenleben in der k. u. k. Armee in verklärtem Licht darstellte. Vgl. Kosch IV, 17f. und Giebisch/G. 74. - Die (Bild-)Postkarten mit Namensstempel; einige Postkarten mit Portraitaufnahmen des Schriftstellers.

        Unser Welt (Our World) Periodical

      1946 - (JUDAICA) (HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS). Unser Welt [Our World]. Partial (nearly complete) run from 1946, Number 1 through 1951, Number 2. Munich and Paris: 1946-51. Folio, earlier numbers (1946, Number 1 through 1948, Number 18) bound in half black cloth and boards; remaining numbers (1948, Number 19 through 1951, Number 2) unbound, folded once as issued. $15,000.Scarce, nearly complete run of the earliest issues of the Zionist newspaper Unser Welt, "Our World," the "National Weekly for Jewry in Europe," published in Munich just after World War II and the Holocaust.Unser Welt was a Zionist-oriented publication with a deep respect for the Revisionist wing of the Zionist movement, with editorial offices in Munich and Paris. Initially, for the first two numbers, the newspaper was called Hamdina ("The State"); this collection contains both Numbers 1 and 2 of Hamdina (all published under that name) along with Number 1 of the newly titled Unser Welt, all from 1946. By the late 1940s, however, Unser Welt's circulation reached several European nations besides Germany, namely Switzerland, France, Austria, Belgium, Sweden and Italy, and its sub-title proclaimed it to be the "National Weekly for Jewry in Europe." The very fact that Unser Welt sought to be the publication of European Jewry spoke volumes about a conscious decision of a number of Jews to remain in the continent where two-thirds of their brethren had been murdered. This collection includes from 1946, both Numbers 1 and 2 of Hamdina, then of Unser Welt, Numbers 1, 5, 8-15, 18, 20-21, 23-30; from 1947, Numbers 31, 33-45a, 48-82; from 1948, Numbers 1-18, all of which are bound together in one folio volume. The collection also gathers, from 1948, Numbers 19-49, 51-62, 65-69; from 1949, Numbers 3-13, 15-17, 20-30, 35-42, 44/45-46, 49; from 1950, Numbers 1-50; and from 1951, Number 2. These are all unbound, folded once as issued. Text in Yiddish, with photographic and line illustrations. A few minor closed tears and mild edge-wear to unbound numbers. Exceptionally good condition. Scarce. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Little Island

"Brown was a prolific writer and used several pseudonyms in addition to her own name, signing books as Golden MacDonald, Timothy Hay and Juniper Sage". The passionate energy with which she wrote and the casual way she selected and used pseudonyms reflect her personality as others knew it. The number of her books, as well as their appeal, contributed to her enormous sales; by the end of 1946 [the year in which this title was published]". some 835,000 copies of her books had been sold". Ironically, Brown's productivity may have delayed formal recognition of her talent" (ANB). "Although Weisgard illustrated stories for numerous authors, he was known especially for his association with Margaret Wise Brown". Weisgard was a runner-up for the Caldecott Medal in 1946 for his illustrations to Little Lost Lamb and won the award in 1947 for The Little Island; Brown wrote both books under the pseudonym Golden MacDonald" (Britannica Online). Caldecott label affixed to front panel.Book about-fine with slight edge-wear, dust jacket extremely good with light toning to spine, closed tear to front panel, minor abrasions to rear panel, one tape repair to verso.

        Portrait of Jennie (Original screenplay for the 1948 film | October 29, 1946 draft)

      Los Angeles: Vanguard Films, 1946. First Temporary Draft script for the 1948 film. One of the great melodramas--veering strongly into the realm of fantasy and ghost stories--of the late 1940s. Painstakingly developed by David O. Selznick and then sold to Vanguard Pictures (to whom Selznick International was sold). "Portrait of Jennie" is a romantic fantasy so strange and concept-driven that it has always eluded mass popularity. Joseph Cotten portrays a struggling artist who becomes enamored--and then obsessed--with a little girl named Jennie who inexplicably begins to grow to womanhood over a period of weeks. Blue titled wrappers. 156leaves, mimeograph, with pink and blue revision pages throughout, dated variously between 11/29/46 and 12/12/46. Pages and wrapper Near Fine, bound with three gold brads.

        Boomerang! (Original screenplay for the 1947 film)

      Los Angeles: Twentieth Century-Fox, 1946. Revised Final script for the 1947 film "Boomerang!." Brief notation in holograph pencil on one page. Based on a Reader's Digest article (1945) by Fulton Oursler (as Anthony Abbot), in turn based on an actual incident involving a Catholic priest and a mentally unstable homeless man. Henry L. Harvey (Andrews) is a public attorney hired to defend a strange out-of-towner accused of murdering a priest. Producer Louis De Rochemont's innovative documentary-style filmmaking is perhaps at it's best in this film, drawing heavily from his previous film, the 1945 Henry Hathaway noir, "The House on 92nd Street." Set in Connecticut, shot on location there and in New York. Nominated for an Academy Award. Self wrappers. Title page integral with front wrapper, dated September 6, 1946, noted as REVISED Final Script, with credits for screenwriter Murphy and writer Oursler (as Abbot). 162 leaves, with the last leaf of text numbered 155. Mimeograph, with blue revision pages throughout, dated variously between 9/18/46 and 9/25/46. Near Fine overall, bound with two gold brads. Grant, p. 87. Selby Canon. Silver, p. 55. Spicer, p. 406.
