        Story in Prints. First Edition. Volume 1-[4]. December 1, 1946. For the Use of World Export Trade of Silk Fabrics.

      102 numbered sheets, each with a hand-painted sample, ranging from 370 x 300 to 150 x 120 mm., & three smaller hand-painted samples measuring 40 x 40 mm., totaling 408 hand-painted samples. Each volume has 9 preliminary leaves of text. Large folio (533 x 442 mm.), orig. canvas-covered boards, each with titling on the upper cover, sewn as issued. [Tokyo]: Compiled by Boeki-Cho the Board of Trade, Ministry of Commerce & Industry of Japan, [1946]. First edition of this magnificent work containing 408 hand-painted samples on paper of designs for textiles available for production. Following the end of World War II, the Supreme Commander for Allied Powers (SCAP) and the Japanese Board of Trade were eager for Japan to revive industries and to build up foreign exchange reserves through trade. The production of textiles was an immediate avenue to pursue. This set of albums was compiled to display the possible designs available, produced either by screen or stencil or by roller printing. Some of the designs could only be executed by hand while others could be printed by roller. The preliminary leaves detail minimum quantities to be ordered, fastness of colors, variation of colors, prices, delivery, widths and lengths, quality control, shipping methods, production abilities, and instructions on how to order. The names of the designers of each sample are given as well as the names of the principal textile manufacturers of Japan. We learn from the preliminary leaves David Heritch, a textile expert attached to the Foreign Trade Division of SCAP, assisted the designers. The samples are all hand-painted and of the greatest beauty. The 102 large samples, measuring 370 x 150 to 150 x 120 mm., contain the principal design and the smaller samples, three each, depict color variation possibilities. Fine set. One of the small samples has come loose and is attached to the tissue guard sheet, obscuring the image. .

        [Photo Album]: Military Hospital South Africa 1947

      South Africa. 1946-1947. Oblong small quarto measuring 7" x 10". Green plastic photo album with "postcard album" stamped in gilt on the front board. Contains 98 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 1.5" x 2.5" and 3.5" x 4.5" with some captions. Album is near fine with slightly bowed boards with fine photographs.A collection of photos from the Baragwanath Military Hospital, also referred to as BMH, in South Africa shortly after World War II beginning in 1946. Commissioned in 1940, BMH was built in response to the hostilities of World War II and the large number of causalities. The British War office requested that South Africa create two hospitals with a total of 1,200 beds for the Middle East Command. Fueled by a war that was not going well for the Allies, the hospital was completed and able to admit it's first patient six months after it's approval and was named "The Imperial Military Hospital, Baragwanath". By the end of the war the hospital was treating men from both the Middle Eastern and Far Eastern Commands, most of whom suffered from Tuberculosis.The photos here show the hospital post war where British and Commonwealth soldiers were still recovering from their war wounds and disease they contracted while fighting. The album appears to have been kept by one of the medical staff of the hospital and shows uniformed men on and off duty in South Africa. The barracks and tented encampments used throughout the facility are shown here with men posing for pictures. One photo shows an orderly dressed up in scrubs with a face mask and a knife tucked into his belt. There are photos of the coast depicting battleships, including the HMS Bermuda, as well as men swimming during their leisure time with action shots of diving and men lounging on beaches. The city of Johannesburg is seen in pictures of the locals, the town center, and shops. One drug store has a sign that announces they speak English. In 1947 the Royal Family made the journey to South Africa and stopped at BMH to visit soldiers and present medals to those wounded in action. The photos here show the preparation for the Royal family with men laying a carpet for the King to stand on when handing out the medals. There is a distant shot of the Royal Family standing in front of the crowd and a photograph of the crowd as they stand aside while the Royals pass through. The hospital was eventually bought by the government of South Africa and began to focus it's care on the indigenous black population. It is now the largest hospital in South Africa.An intriguing collection of post war photography from a military hospital. .

        DRESSED TO KILL (Unique Manuscript Screenplay Archive for the 1946 Universal Studios SHERLOCK HOLMES film adaptation based on Arthur Conan Doyle's "A Scandal In Bohemia" and "The Adventure of the Dancing Men.")

      Universal Studios 1946 - Doyle, A. Conan. DRESSED TO KILL [here bearing the initial, later discarded, title "Prelude To Murder"]. Los Angeles: Universal Studios, 1946. This unique film studio screenplay archive consists of THREE original screenplays. 1. A "First Revised Draft" dated January 3rd, 1946, the screenwriter's original carbon copy typescript, unannotated, on 94pp of onion-skin paper. Brad-bound in original drab brown Universal Studios covers which are a little brittle and chipped else Very Good, bearing the stamped production number 7337. 2. Complete 78pp brad-bound shooting script consisting of a mix of original ribbon-copy typescript and studio-mimeographed white pages, dated January 16th, 1946 with production number 7337 stamped on the cover. This remarkable writer's draft contains extensive author-revised annotations, emendations, revisions and additions throughout. This is accomplished via cut-and-paste, the insertion of additional leaves, and new dialogue and description scrawled on the versos, an exceptional artifact which boldly captures the revision process of this last entry in the Sherlock Holmes' Universal Studios film series. The front cover has been neatly reinforced with tape and bears the original penciled filing notation indicating that this particular script is the copy from which the final draft was produced. 3. Dated April 25th, 1946, the complete original studio-mimeographed self-wrapper final post-production dialogue continuity script, bound with two brads at the top. In Very Good condition. The title, DRESSED TO KILL, refers to the film's wily femme fatale Hilda Courtney (played by Patricia Morison), an homage to Irene Adler from "A Scandal In Bohemia" complete with a familiar misdirection trick which Hilda uses to fool Watson into revealing a hidden location. The plot is an amalgam of several Holmes stories but also draws from other plots in the Universal Sherlock film canon: a convicted thief in Dartmoor Prison hides stolen Bank of England printing plates inside three music boxes -- leading to the murder or attempted murder of their owners, using the central device of a secret code which, of course, only Holmes can brilliantly break. Starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce in their final film together, DRESSED TO KILL opened on June 7th, 1946 to excellent reviews but also to rumors that it was to be the last of the Universal Sherlock films; by October of that year Producer Roy William Neill, truly the visionary of the film series, died and that signaled the end of one of the most successful franchises in Universal Studios history. Unique. Please see the other Universal Sherlock scripts we have in stock. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Desert Yarns; Into an Alkali Valley & Desert Treasure: A Bibliography + Supplement

      The Ward Ritchie Press; Edwards & Williams; & The Progress Press 1946 - 3 volumes in slipcase. Desert Yarns (1946) numbered 56 out of 250, very good hardcover with no jacket. Into an Alkali Valley (1948) flat-signed by author Edwards on 1/2 title page, also with original typewritten letter tipped in, addressed 'Dear Colonel' and hand-signed 'Eddie' at the bottom, discusses the history of 40 copies of this publication originally destined to be Christmas gifts and then lost by the wayside for years. Pamphlet numbered 171 of 250. Desert Treasure (1948) is hardbound with a clear protective cover and includes the scarce supplement (1949) laid in. Quite a lovely little set of hard-to-find titles. This slipcase does not appear to have been customized for these three titles, but is how we received it from Mr. Brundt. We have a rather large collection of Western Americana that we acquired from one John Brundt of Walla Walla, Washington. Brundt crafted beautiful custom slipcases for almost his entire collection numbering nearly a thousand titles. We have more books from his library available for avid collectors!

        [Autograph Album]: Signatures of Joe Liggins and The Honeydrippers

      [New York]. [1946-1947]. Autograph album. Measuring 4 x 6 inches. String-tied maroon paper wrappers with "Autographs" on the front wrap. Very good with the silk tie a bit frayed, general rubbing and the corners a little chipped. An album containing the signatures of the five members of the rhythm and blues band Joe Liggins and The Honeydrippers," collected by "Helen" who saw them perform at The Harlem Renaissance Ballroom, the premiere venue for African-American performers and sports in New York. The group was organized by Joe Liggins (1915-1987), an African American pianist from Guthrie, Oklahoma, who had moved to California and played with a number of bands before starting his own, at once becoming a mainstay of the R&B circuit in Los Angeles. His group's breakaway hit was called "The Honeydripper" which topped the Billboard R&B chart (then called the "Race Chart") in 1945, remaining there for 18 weeks, tied with Louis Jordan's "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie" for longest running chart topper. A number of other hits followed, including "Rag Mop" and "Pink Champagne." Each member of the band - Joe Liggns, Little Willie Jackson, James Jackson, Frank Pasley, and Preston "Peppy" Prince - signed the book "To Helen, best wishes, [signature], [instrument], Honey Drippers," save Liggins who omitted the name of his instrument and the band and Jackson who omitted the name of his instrument. There are five other signatures in the album that we have been unable to identify. .

Straight and square, no spine lean, a well protected copy, very unusual for these early 1st Editions to survive in this condition. Produced in conformity with the war time standard's, with the distinctive 'War Time Economy Standards' title verso. This copy has its original unclipped dustjacket in Very Good Minus condition. The previous owner has reinforced the edges and folds with brown tape to the interior of the dustjacket. This has helped preserve the dustjacket, although it does show considerable wear to the edges, and the flap folds are starting to split. Dustjacket is in an archival protector, to help preserve this unrestored original dustjacket. Pages are clean, no tears or stains. The green topstain is almost completely faded, and a bit dusty. No shelf wear to the edges of the boards, only lightly bumped corners. The top of the back board has a area that looks like a burn mark, leaving an exposed edge of the boards approx. 3/4" in length. The original decorative green cloth, is unsoiled without any fading to the spine area. Despite its faults, a beautiful collectable copy, uncommon in it's original dustjacket, now housed in a custom leather slipcase. Digital photo's available, inquire if interested. Other Tolkien books available, include both the UK and US editions, original cloth bindings, custom fine bindings, and Signed/Numbered/Limited Editions. Very Good Plus / Very Good Minus.

        Photograph signed. Auden.

      1946 - JACOBI, Lotte. Photograph signed. W.H. Auden. New York, circa 1946. Vintage gelatin silver print (measuring 11 by 14 inches), photographer’s penciled signature and embossed stamp on lower right corner of print recto, penciled number and name on print verso. Handsomely matted and framed, entire piece measures 22 by 17 inches. $7500.Vintage gelatin silver print by Lotte Jacobi, signed by her with her embossed “New York” studio stamp in the lower right corner of print recto, her famed 1946 portrait of poet W.H. Auden, his face half in shadow, half in soft light, quietly intent on the open book in his hands.The photographs of Lotte Jacobi, one of the 20th-century’s finest portraitists, “are celebrated for their directness, their penetrating immediacy, and their ability to convey the essence of the subject before her camera.” (Sundstrom, 1). Jacobi’s photographs captured the vibrancy of Berlin’s Weimar culture before she was forced to flee Nazi Germany in the 1930s. In the 1940s her New York studio became a second home to many, like her, exiled by force or choice from their native lands. That sensitivity resonates in this famous portrait of British poet W.H. Auden, who often “depicted himself as a voyager” and in 1946, when this was taken, had just returned from “a visit to the war ruins of Europe” (Davenport-Hines, 1, 228). Jacobi’s artistry is especially powerful here in her photograph’s ability to protectively cloak the writer and his book from the world and yet, inexplicably, draw us into a “tacit rapport between viewer and image” (Sundstrom, 1). Jacobi’s vintage gelatin silver print, rarely found in this large 11 by 14-inch format, intuitively reveals that it was only “with books” that Auden’s “hands took on a deftness and lost all the ineptitude they had with plates and cups” (Davenport-Hines, 234). With Jacobi’s trademark penciled signature at the lower right corner of the print recto, immediately beneath her embossed stamp: “Lotte Jacobi, New York.” Lightly penciled notations on print verso reading “#111” and identified “W.H. Auden.” See White, Lotte Jacobi 89; Wise, 65. From the estate of Lotte Jacobi.A fine signed print. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
