First editions, all published. Uncommon. An excellent set of these important works of naval ethnography, forming a series on boat construction around the world. The series was planned as a supplement to Admiral François-Edmond Paris' famous Souvenirs de Marine Conservés … , first published in 1877, the Fascicule Introductif including an index to Paris' work, and reprinting his five plates of the Bateaux de Cochinchine. Each fascicule offers a detailed account of the boat-building techniques of a particular region, comprising; Les Jonques des Chinois du Siam; Pirogues et Ca-vom de l'Ouest Cochinchinois; Les Barques de Mer de Rachgia; La Machoua de Versova; and Les Barques du Moyen Niger. It was an ambitious project, planned under the direction of the Centre de Recherche Culturelle de la Route des Indes in Djibouti, the series was also projected encompass sections on "ethnographie terrestre" and "archéologie terrestre". However when the Parisian publisher Gauthier-Villars folded, the project collapsed. These five thematic fascicules, together with the sixth introductory part - "exposant les idées générales" of the collection - appear to have been all that were published.

Briefe (2) und Karten (3) von Ada Nolde (zusammen 14½ SS. auf 8 Bll.; mit 4 eh. adr. Kuverts). Mit weiteren Beilagen (s. u.). Inhaltsreiche und persönliche Schreiben an den Kunstsammler Max Kruss in Berlin, überwieg. aus den letzten Kriegsjahren. Einige Auszüge: "Der Winter ging dahin mit seinem schnellen Pulsschlag [.] Ich hätte wohl bei Ihnen anrufen u. Sie sprechen sollen, aber etwas Scheu vor der Wirklichkeit, die ich oft habe, hält mich manchmal fern, - im eigenen Traumland geht es besser, da bin ich allein. - Es ist die Einladung der Berliner Secession, zu der ich eine Antwort sagen soll. Darf ich Sie bitten dem Vorstand meinen Dank zu sagen für das ehrenvolle Annerbieten [sic], daß aber bei den Kunstverhältnissen dort zu einer Ausstellung bei Ihnen ich mich nicht entschließen kann. - Während den eiligen Berliner Tagen waren wir ganz kurz in der Macke- u. auch in der Beckmann Ausstellung, Mackes kleine Bilder haben viel Feinheit, Beckmann ist sehr wandelbar, in Technik u Auffassung [.]" (1. VI. 1928). - "[.] Wir wohnen so still als möglich auf unserem Kunstheim Seebüll, in mancher Beziehung durch das mehr oder weniger gute gesundheitliche Ergehen dictirt; große Ansprüche dürfen wir gesundheitlich nicht stellen, die Lebenscurve steigt nicht mehr aufwärts, wie es war. - Die Kriegsberichte kommen selbstredend zu uns hierher, wie zu jedem anderen u. auch die grausigen Geschehen von den Terrorangriffen, diese allerdings verspätet, denn Briefe gehen langsam. In unserer Wohnung fielen 2 Brandbomben, die gelöscht werden konnten. - Um meine Bilder sind wir besorgt, in privaten Häusern sind manche vernichtet, von Gemälden wohl nur wenige, aber manche Aquarelle [.]" (19. XII. 1943). - "[.] Diese Bombenangriffe sind erschreckend, mit allen ihren Zerstörungen u. der Gefährdung der Menschen. Die Bombenschwärme rollen gegenwärtig täglich oder nächtlich über unser Haus hinweg [.] Wir sind bekümmert um unserer Freunde. Auch denke ich ja an meine Bilder überall, die, wenn sie auch im Besitz anderer sind, so doch trotzdem ein Teil des eigenen Ichs sind u. ich bin bei allen im Geistigen mitbeteiligt [.] Selbst weiß man nicht was man heute besitzt u. morgen nicht mehr, ja wie nahe auch die eigene körperliche Gefahr ist erfährt man immerzu, wenn die Bomben fallen u. die Fenster klirren. - Über die Kunst als solche nachzudenken, scheint einem gegenwärtig fast wie überflüssig [.] Alle liefen damals mit den (später von der Partei verdammten) Zeitströmungen, ich als einzigster Maler kämpfte dagegen. Weshalb darf die Dichtung von Gerhard Hauptmann, die Musik von Richard Strauss gelten u. meine Malerei nicht? Diese u. manche andere Fragen rufen nach ihrer Beantwortung. Der Glaube, daß es Gerechtigkeit u. Vergeltung giebt, entschwindet einem fast völlig [.]" (31. I. 1944). - "[.] Uns interessierte es, was Sie vom Künstlerischen in Berlin schreiben und dem regen Betrieb. Die gewesenen Ausstellungen in Hamburg, Celle u. s. w., sind alle durch Bilder aus Privatbesitz entstanden und man weiss nicht in wessen Besitz die Bilder sind, weil dieser ungern angegeben wird. Ich selbst stelle gar nicht aus gegenwärtig und auch habe ich das Verkaufen eingestellt, dann man hat dabei seine Bilder nur vergeben und der Erlös, abgesehen von dem, was man zum einfachen Leben gebraucht, wird von den Steuern verschluckt. Nachdem ich die Arbeitsfreiheit wieder erhalten habe und Maler und sonstige Freunde mir Material gesandt haben, habe ich das Malen wieder aufgenommen und es geht gut. Man wusste ja fast nicht ob es möglich wäre [.]" (2. VIII. 1946). - Die ausführlichen Briefe Adas an Kruss berichten ebenfalls zumeist aus der Zeit von 1944 bis 1946 und geben interessante Einblicke in den (Kriegs-) Alltag der Noldes. "[.] Die feindlichen Flieger greifen hier unsere Urlaubszüge an und Menschen, die zusammenstehen. Es sind gewiss Uebungsflüge für zukünft

        Snow Goose, The

      London: Michael Joseph, 1946. - Beautifully Illustrated by Peter ScottHandsomely Bound by Sangorski & SutcliffeGALLICO, Paul. SCOTT, Peter, illustrator. The Snow Goose. London: Michael Joseph, [1946]. Edition Deluxe limited to seven hundred and fifty copies printed on mould-made paper and signed by the author and artist (this being copy # 294). Quarto (11 1/16 x 8 5/8 inches; 281 x 220 mm.). 64 pp., including 4 full-page tipped-in color plates and numerous line drawings in the text.Bound by Sangorski & Sutcliffe ca. 1946 (stamp-signed on front turn-in) in full blue crushed levant morocco, boards triple-ruled in gilt, spine with five raised bands, paneled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt board-edges and turn-ins, Cockerel end-papers, top edge gilt, others uncut. The absolute bare minimum of fading to spine, a very fine copy.Paul William Gallico (1897-1976) was an American novelist, short story and sports writer. Many of his works were adapted for motion pictures. He is perhaps best remembered for The Snow Goose, his only real critical success, and for the novel The Poseidon Adventure, primarily through the 1972 film adaptation."The Snow Goose is a simple, short written parable on the regenerative power of friendship and love, set against a backdrop of the horror of war. It documents the growth of a friendship between Philip Rhayader, an artist living a solitary life in an abandoned lighthouse in the marshlands of Essex because of his disabilities, and a young local girl, Fritha. The Snow Goose, symbolic of both Rhayader (Gallico) and the world itself, wounded by gunshot and many miles from home, is found by Fritha and, as the human friendship blossoms, the bird is nursed back to flight, and revisits the lighthouse in its migration for several years. As Fritha grows up, Rhayader and his small sailboat eventually are lost in the British retreat from Dunkirk, having saved several hundred men. The bird, which was with Rhayader, returns briefly to the grown Fritha on the marshes. She interprets this as Rhayader's soul taking farewell of her (and realizes she had come to love him). Afterwards, a German pilot destroys Rhayader's lighthouse and all of his work, except for one portrait Fritha saves after his death: a painting of her as Rhayader first saw her—a child, with the wounded snow goose in her arms." This image appears as the color frontispiece.Sir Peter Markham Scott (1909-1989) was a British ornithologist, conservationist, painter, naval officer and sportsman. He was the son of the Antarctic explorer, Robert Falcon Scott was named after Sir Clements Markham, mentor of Scott's polar expeditions. His Godfather was J.M. Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan.

        TLS "Woody Guthrie".

      New York, 19. III. 1946. - 4to. 1 page. Letter to Moe Asch and Marian Distler. In full: "I have listened to the album, Ballads From The Dust Bowl, and like the cover better than I thought I did. I think this cover will look better to a customer on a shelf or in a window than it does to me, and this is how David Stone Martin wanted it to look. Cathy had a hard time making out what the man was doing, what he was sitting in, and what he was looking at. The Letter and Words to the Songs on the inside front cover are too small to read. It is like hunting back into the archives of folk songs for something that is right there in front of you. Would like to see these words put in the backside also so as to blow up to bigger size. But I know that it takes practice to get very good at anything and even after you get good at it takes money. And even after you get money it takes time and labor. The order that I like the records are: MY NEW FOUND LAND PASTURES OF PLENTY HARD TRAVELING RAMBLING BLUES CURFEW TALKING COLUMBIA Shirley is Nineteen, she lives with us and watches Cathy, she belongs to the AYD and gets lots of Daily Worker Subs. She just now heard the recording, The Curfew Blow, and asked me what it was about. I said I didn’t know. She asked did I make it up? I told her yes. She asked, ‘About anything specific?’ And I just stood here by the fonograf [sic] and looked down towards the floor. I guess I can criticize other folks records lots plainer than I can my own. I would for this and other similiar [sic] reasons get a big kick out of looking at all comment favorable and not so favorable that you stir up with the Ballads from the Dustbowl." Intersecting folds, one through a single letter of signature, light creasing to three corners, a bit heavier to top right, otherwise fine condition. Humorously addressed, "DEAR MOE: ASCH’S CRASHES, / DEAR MARIAN: DITSLER’S DISCS," this letter to the founders of legendary Folkways Records reads as pure Woody Guthrie from start to finish. When the musician found Victor RCA unwilling to reissue his first commercial album, Ballads From the Dust Bowl, he authorized Folkways to copy the discs and put out its own version. After acknowledging the famous artist David Stone Martin’s customer-friendly cover art—"I think this cover will look better to a customer on a shelf or in a window than it does to me"—he moves on to a critique of what really mattered: the letter and words to the songs. Known for his ‘authentically American’ lyrics, he wanted them to take a prominent place, blown up and put on the backside as well. He also lists the order he likes for some of his most famous songs, including Hard Travelin’ and Ramblin’ Blues. - After talk of the albums, Guthrie relates a quick story about his daughter’s nanny, Shirley, questioning him on his own music. When asked if he made up the song The Curfew Blow and what it was about, he writes, "I just stood here by the fonograf and looked down towards the floor. I guess I can criticize other folks records lots plainer than I can my own." A rare moment of speechlessness from the quick-witted rambling folksinger! In reading this incredible letter, packed with important references, it is hard not to imagine the spirited musician punching the keys of his old typewriter in his Mermaid Avenue apartment.

Of special interest is the wonderful sample leaf with its original period samples offers an invaluable historical reference for the brewing ingredients and processes in post-World War II America. From collection of Robert Horner, former regional sales agent for Pabst who fortunately ignored the directives to destroy the earlier portions of the manual.

Now famed for his 'pulp fiction', Stephen Daniel Frances, launched Pendulum Publication as WWII was ending. Pendulum then published this, his first novel, semi-autobiographical it did not sell well.

With the failure of this to sell and two other novels unpublished Francis took advice and changed genre. American 'hard-boiled' crime fiction was selling well and Francis wrote and sold 'When Dames Get Tough' in 1946, using the pen-name of 'Hank Janson' who also featured in the story. And so 'Hank Janson' was introduced to an enthusiastic book buying public.

        London The Bastion of Liberty

      London.: Chromoworks, Limited.. Ca. 1946.. Color pictographic / pictorial map poster, 38 1/2 x 48 1/2 inches (97 x 123cm), folded (probably as issued). 1/2 inch separations at the intersection of several of the folds, one of which has a 1/2 inch tear leading from that separation; overall in very good clean condition. This attractive pictorial map by artist Kerry Lee dates from the period 1945 to 1948. It is a post World War II celebration of London and the British spirit with Winston Churchill's words in the banner at upper right: "We would rather see London in ruins and ashes than that it should be tamely and abjectly enslaved," with evident reference to the fall of Paris. It was issued in different sizes over the years (this being the largest and the earliest; this printing also has a slightly glossy print quality). The main railway stations are named according to railway company (LNER etc) with additional location name (King's Cross etc) (newer versions of this map name only by location, following the nationalisation of the railway system in 1948). The Festival Hall has not yet been built (so pre 1951), with 'County Hall' being named in its place. The map shows the area of London from Earl's Court Road in the west to The City in the East, and from Regent's Park in the north to Lambeth and Bermondsey in the south. Bordering the map are vignettes of London attractions and important places (Epsom is the lower centre vignette) with coat of arms at the top centre. The map names and depicts important buildings (including all the major department stores along Oxford Street) and is liberally sprinkled with pictographs of historical characters. The publishing line at lower edge reads at left "Published in Great Britain by Chromoworks, Limited." At right: "Copyright in all countries. Published by The Travel Association of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, 6 Arlington Street, London, S.W. 1, England, for the Sole Distributors Messrs Sydney Walton and W. E. Bevan (all enquiries to the Blandford Studios, 71 Blandford Street, London, W.1.)" .

        Tributes and Other Relevant Documents

      Stamford: The Overbrook Press 1946 - 8vo., blue cloth and red cover label lettered in gilt. First edition, first printing, one of 200 copies. A presentation copy, inscribed: "To my friend and associate Philip C. Jessup, with kindest regards and very sincere appreciation of his unfailing encouragement and assistance in making a great international agency for peace and good will among peoples of the world, Herbert H. Lehman, March 28, 1947," on the front endpaper. [Together with] Jessup's copy of "Funeral Service for Hon. Herbert H. Lehman, December 8, 1963" (Stamford: The Overbrook Press, 1963; 8vo., gray wrappers printed in black). ---- The recipient, Philip C. Jessup, a judge on the International Court of Justice at The Hague and veteran U.S. diplomat, was credited with playing a major role in ending the Soviet blockade of West Berlin. Jessup was a representative to the United Nations General Assembly, as well as a U.S. ambassador at large from 1949 until his resignation in 1953. During that time, he was one of the closest advisers of then-Secretary of State Dean Acheson. Meanwhile, from 1943 until 1946, as director of the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration, Lehman directed the largest international relief effort in history: 24 million tons of food, clothing, and medical supplies to 500 million victims of world war. After Jessup was maligned by Senator Joe McCarthy for purported communist "affinities," General Dwight D. Eisenhower heralded Jessup's "devotion to the principles of Americanism." McCarthy's charges kept Jessup from being reappointed to the U.S. delegation to the United Nations in 1951 but President Harry S. Truman made him an alternate delegate the following year. Like Jessup, when Senator Lehman fought McCarthyism, his colleagues told him he was committing political suicide. But Lehman said, "I will not compromise with my conscience. I will cast my vote to protect the liberties of our people." Voters respected his integrity and reelected him to the Senate. A compelling presentation copy.
