        Collection of Vernacular Original Hand-Painted Posters for the American Legion Created by Girls

      [Sanford, Maine]: Sanford High School. [circa 1946]. 15 large and colorful hand-painted posters. Each is approximately 14" x 20". Poster paint on artists board. Variously there is some modest rubbing, light soiling, and edgewear, all of the examples are very good or better. 13 of the artists, each one a high school girl, have signed their work on the verso; two are unsigned. The art promotes American Legion themes: selling poppies made by disabled vets, the plight of disabled military personal (especially amputees), battle scenes, medical scenes, cemetery scenes; one represents a dove of peace clutching a poppy. It seems likely that all of the artists were girls who attended Sanford High School in Sanford, Maine (stated on all of the signed posters). A stark reminder that even on the home front each citizen, including high school students, is expected to play their part. Visually striking remembrances of the horrors and aftermath of war, remarkable to find altogether, and frankly, pretty wonderful. A complete list available upon request. .

Envoi autographe de l'écrivain français André Gide (1869-1951), prix Nobel de littérature 1947, au romancier, essayiste, critique littéraire et scénariste français, membre de l'Académie française Marcel Arland (1899-1986) : " à Marcel Arland / en bien cordial souvenir / André Gide ". En tête de volume on trouve ce paragraphe imprimé : " Des éditions incomplètes de ce Journal ont paru, à New-York (Schiffrin, 15 juin 1944), à Alger (Charlot, 30 septembre 1944) et en Suisse (Editions du Haut-Pays, 5 avril 1945), précédées d'un Avant-Propos (voir appendice I.). Ces Pages de Journal avaient été données préalablement par la revue l'Arche, qui paraissait alors à Alger.

En un combat douteux, de John Steinbeck. Impeccable traduction d'un livre très remarquable. Moins las, j'aurais plaisir à le louer. Je ne pourrais le faire que trop longuement. C'est la meilleure peinture (psychologique) que je connaisse du communisme; et d'un éclairement parfait. S'il laisse dans la coulisse la contre-partie capitaliste et bourgeoise, du moins la laisse-t-il entrevoir fort habilement dans les dialogues, et cela suffit. Le personnage principal reste la foule; mais de cette masse informe et flottante se détachent diverses figures où les aspects diaprés du problème sont exposés sans que jamais la discussion vienne encombrer et arrêter l'action. Et de même se détachent sur le grand mouvement d'ensemble, dans le sens de la grande vague des intérêts communs ou s'y opposant, les passions ou intérêts individuels des leaders ou des comparses; et cela si équitablement présenté, que l'on ne peut prendre parti pour ou contre la marée des revendications non plus que n'a fait l'auteur. La légitimité de ces revendications, comme la réussite de la lutte elle-même, reste " douteuse ". Douteuse surtout la légitimité de l'emploi de moyens perfides pour amener le triomphe d'une cause, celle-ci fût-elle en elle-même des plus légtimes; mais ce que Steinbeck montre admirablement (sans pourtant rien démontrer), c'est comment sont amenés et contraints à la perfidie, à l'injustice, à la cruauté résolue, ceux à qui tous autres moyens de lutte sont refusés; et comment les plus nobles et généreux caractères s'en trouvent faussés. D'où la grande détrese (sic) que, de part en part, respire ce beau livre atroce. Arrivés à un certain stade de l'histoire, il n'est rien qui ne se présente à l'état de problème. Et la responsabilité de l'homme augmente à mesure que celle des dieux diminue. C'est à l'homme seul, en fin de compte, qu'incombe la solution de tous ces problèmes que lui seul aura soulevés. " (André Gide, Journal 1939-1942, p.89-90).

        Autograph Postcard Signed

      Autograph Postcard Signed and dated 13 January 1946 to artist Theodore Spicer Simson, granting him permission to produce a medallion of Shaw's wife, who had died three years before. Old glue remnants on the verso, not obscuring the recipient's address, very good. Earlier, Simson had published Men of Letters of the British Isles: Portrait Medallions from the Life (1924) which included G.B.S. In full: "My wife died in 1943. She was sensitive about her personal appearance, and resented the slightest attempt to pass her off as a conventionally pretty woman. The result was that she could not bear any sort of portrait. The photographs I have were forced on her by the passport authorities. Your medallion, which was kindly if not flattering --- a bit sonsie perhaps --- shared the general fate. But there is now no reason why you should not reproduce the medallion ad lib. I, as her executor, have no objection. Both medallions are at your disposal if you can reproduce them and find any market for them. Glad to hear from you again after all the dangers. G. Bernard Shaw." .

        Independent People [Signed] [Sjálfstætt fólk / Signet]

      New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1946. First American edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/near fine. A Near Fine copy of the first American edition, first printing, of one of Halldor Laxness' most important works (spine ends mildly pushed, spine gilt slightly dulled with a touch of rubbing, topstain shows some light fading near the spine) in a Near Fine dust jacket (light edge wear and light chipping at the corners, spine slightly darkened),SIGNED BY HALLDOR LAXNESS on the half-title. Halldor Laxness won the 1955 Nobel Prize in Literature "for his vivid epic power which has renewed the great narrative art of Iceland", the only Icelander ever to have won the Prize. Set in the early 20th Century, and published as a single volume in America, this great epic originally appeared in two volumes, "Landnámsmaður Íslands" (1934 - which, translated, means "Icelandic Pioneers") and "Erfiðir tímar" (1935 - which, translated, means "Hard Times"). The two works together comprise "Independent People", the tale of Bjartur, a poor Icelandic sheep farmer who, only recently freed from a system of debt bondage, struggles to survive in Iceland's harsh environment. In his presentation speech at the Nobel Prize ceremony, about Laxness and "Independent People", E. Wessén, Member of the Swedish Academy, stated: "Individual people and their destinies always move us most deeply in Halldór Laxness' novels.....Even more affecting, perhaps, is the story of Bjartur, the man with the indomitable will for freedom and independence, Geijer's yeoman farmer in an Icelandic setting and, with monumental, epic proportions, the settler, the landnámsman of Iceland's thousand-year-old history. Bjartur remains the same in sickness and misfortune, in poverty and starvation, in raging snowstorms and face to face with the frightening monsters of the moors, and pathetic to the last in his helplessness and his touching love for his foster daughter, Ásta Sóllilja." In the view of many, "Independent People" was of great importance in Laxness' winning of the Prize. Signed copies of this epic and important novel are quite scarce, and signed copies in English translation are even more so. A Very Good copy of one of Halldor Laxness' most significant works, SIGNED BY HALLDOR LAXNESS. QUITE SCARCE.

        Full Production Without War

      Princeton: Princeton University Press. 1946. First. First edition. Spotting on the boards and a small paper remnant adhered to the base of the spine from the jacket, as well as a pencil note from a bookseller dated in 1985 giving the provenance of the book, thus very good in very good dustwrapper with some small chips and tears at the extremities. Inscribed by the author: "To Susan Jenkins affectionately Harold Loeb." Jenkins was the wife of William Slater Brown, designer for the Provincetown Theatre, and a close friend of Eugene O'Neill's. Loeb's inscriptions are scarce. He was an important figure in Paris' expatriate community. He is also remembered in the literary world as the model for Jake Barnes' rival for the affection of Lady Brett Ashley in The Sun Also Rises, wherein his early kindnesses to Hemingway (using his influence with Horace Liveright to get In Our Time published) was repaid by being portrayed as Robert Cohn, the cowardly and especially "Jewish" villain. .

        The Heavenly Tenants

      New York: Harper & Brothers. (1946). First. First edition. Quarto. Pictures by Ilonka Karasz. Some foxing to the page edges, very near fine in very good dustwrapper with two chips on the front panel and some short tears. Author's scarce children's book, illustrated by a New Yorker colleague. This copy with a long Inscription by Maxwell at a later date, to an important editor: "May 7, 1980. Dear Bob, It was the artist's idea to put a salt-box house on a Wisconsin farm, and since the illustrator wanted it done, and also was my friend, I didn't have the heart to ask her to do it over again in the interests of verisimilitude. But the farm is a real farm, ten miles from Portage, and so far as I know unchanged to this day. I don't believe there has been much change in the heavens, either. You will find that same farm in 'Bright Center of Heaven' if you succeed in getting a copy, a thing I would not consider possible for anyone but you. Scarce as hen's teeth. But so is this. W.M." A wonderful inscription in an uncommon book. .
